Tricksy Tricks

Well, I finally got to work revising the Chanbara ninja/martial artist/priest special abilities called Tricks.

Too many of the previous draft Tricks were combat oriented, since I started with the Flying Swordsmen Martial Arts Maneuvers.  So I cut a lot of them and am coming up with new ones that aid in infiltration, espionage, acrobatics, social interaction, and special use of ninja gear.  Plus a few for ninjutsu combat - but only a few.

I'm much happier with this set.


  1. Thanks, Josh. I'm feeling a lot better about the whole project these days. Hopefully I'll get it together soon and do some more play-testing over the spring and summer.

    Doubt if you'll have the free time, but if you somehow do, you're welcome to help try it out.

  2. life is becoming more normal. i should be up for that. i like the idea of a lot of non-combat thinking traits. sounds fun. shoot me a copy once it becomes more formalized.
