I'm working on layout for print and ebook versions of Chanbara in my spare time. Unfortunately, the past two weeks or so I've been grading final papers for the semester (along with a few other work-related duties) so I haven't made any progress in that time. But it's coming along, if slowly.
I'm optimistically planning to get it all done during my winter vacation, preferably in January rather than February. I'll release the ebook as soon as I'm done with it, and once I get a print proof and decide it's good (with international shipping that may take a bit more time than I'd like) I'll release the print version.
I'll be selling it through One Book Shelf (DriveThruRPG), and plan to have a full color paperback version. I may also release a deluxe color hardback "collector's edition" if there's demand for it. But at only 64 pages or so, I don't think many people will clamor for a hardback.
Thanks again for all of your patience with this project of mine. I'm really glad I didn't try Kickstarter or GoFundMe for this. I can see exactly why so many one-person RPG projects on it are late or fail to come to completion.
Anyway, rejoice! Your chance to play old school style D&D with a jidai-geki twist is coming sooner rather than later!
