Far Eastern Wonderland #3 - Adaptation: Letty Whiterock

by Umiushi on Yesterday at 05:27 AM
"Just a moment! I am the mastermind, but I'm normal," Letty Whiterock, Perfect Cherry Blossom

Letty Whiterock is a spirit of cold weather, and may even be the incarnation of winter in Gensoukyou. During the height of that season, she is immensely powerful, but her strength and motivation wane at other times of the year. The weather effects she creates can indirectly kill normal humans, a fact that doesn't concern her much. The natural fear of winter storms keeps her well-nourished,

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. I want something that will capture the ornate tactics of a spellcard duel, so fourth edition D&D will be the backbone, probably with some influence from 13th Age. Naturally, I don't want to have to reinvent the wheel, so the two English-language Touhou rpgs that already exist, Flowery

    • 1 Lava Fall trap
    • 3 Angels of Watchfulness

  • Encounter Two
    • Sanial Majnun
