Campaign Setup Sheet

Campaign Aspects: Shadow Empire of the Four Beasts
Subgenre Aspects
Starting Refresh: 4
Starting Stunts: 3
Start as Master: (N)
(Talk about if anyone wants to)
❑ Spend 1 additional Refresh at character creation to become a Master or…
❑ Achieve Master rank in a Kung Fu Style for free if all 6 Techniques are purchased during character creation.

I like having something the characters can work toward.

Optional Rules

DRAMATIC INITIATIVE?: (N)

It’s not a bad rule however without physical tokens can be harder to do. We can try it if people want.

+D6-D6DICE RESOLUTION?: (N)

4df will do fine

MIN. 1 STRESS PER SUCCESSFUL ATTACK? (Y)
(Tabled for now)
❑1 Stress Minimum on all attack or…
X 1 Stress Minimum on attack by characters at same or higher Jianghu rank or…
❑1 Stress Minimum if attacker has equal of greater Skill or…
❑1 Stress Minimum if a Fate Point is Spent.

I kind of like the lethality of this. Please note this will remove the boost on tie rule.

RANGED COMBAT CAN USE KUNG FU? (Y)
MAKING AND BREAKING ZONES? (Y)
DEADLY HANDS OF KUNG FU? (N)
(Tabled for now)
(all physical attacks have a default +1 Weapon Rating)
The 1 stress on successful attacks covers this.
FIGHTING WITHOUT FIGHTING Y
Use Skills other than Fight to achieve this (Provoke, Chi, etc.…) or…
RAPID ADVANCEMENT OF KUNG FU? Y / N

(can gain new Technique in known style in addition to Skill
increase from Milestones rather than instead of)

Lets talk about advancement after we actually get a game going.

Aspects from Guns
  • Should guns have the “Out of Ammo” aspect: (Y)

How this works is guns and other ranged weapons have an “Out of Ammo” aspect that the GM can compel when thee feel it is dramatically appropriate to do so. Making the weapon empty.

  • Put an “Deafened” aspect on a scene: (Y)

This adds a nice touch of realism.

“Fee”
  • No wire work.
  • No energy attacks.
Weird advancement.

Get rid of it, it will mess up bookkeeping.
