Far Eastern Wonderland #1 - inception of a homebrew work in progress

by Umiushi on 03-15-2014 at 03:55 AM
Continuing on my quest to come up with a satisfying set of rules for a Touhou-inspired role-playing game set in the fantasy land of Gensoukyou, I'm finally biting the bullet and sitting down to some homebrew stew.

  • Encounter One
    • Edeluthon Meebayriakalatinod
    • 1 Lava Fall trap
    • 3 Angels of Watchfulness

  • Encounter Two
    • Sanial Majnun
    • 6 Abyssal Scavengers
