So I really went into magical samurai RPG, made an entire FM over it that failed in a comical catastrophic way and then jokingly told everyone more about it. With it, I noticed that I grabbed the interest of some people who wanted to actually play the rpg game.
The setting is about the land of Rokugan, in which the seven great clans are each tasked with a specific duty to serve the emperor, and everyone plays samurai with a pair of sharp swords, infinite money and a duty to protect those above and those below you.
I have four ideas of campaigns. The first one we would have to do some parts of it in PMs/outside forums because it would not be content appropriate here, but it is the most amazing product I have ever run. Players are expected to act together as a party. Not necessarily always being at the same places, but always having the same objective. The players are sent to the worst winter court of Rokugan and expected to investigate the background of a maiden who is to marry. It is about politics and passion.
The second one is pretty chill when compared to this in question of age rating and is pretty sandboxy — it is not a campaign but a scenario. Players can be anything, but most famously this setup is played with samurai cops, who may act together or not but are all expected to help eachother at least to enforce law. It is about treachery and deception. I seriously don’t recommend this for new players.
The players arrive into the dirtiest city of Rokugan — an oasis of deception where half the city is addicted to opium.
The third one I know nothing about, but would probably have more memes and one review said that although not a great campaign as the first two, it is still good. It requires players to be samurai cops. If I recall it right it is about investigating the murder of a lady. They are expected to act as a party. It is about obstinatedness and mystery.
The fourth option is me making something entirely from scratch, which probably would be pretty similar to the first option because winter court is the laziest way to reunite 10 weirdos. Or I could force everyone into playing Crane and we can play diplomacy. Would be about anything you guys want, but probably trickery and discovery. Idk. Didn’t plan out much already.
Would be done by text and in any platform you guys want.
The strong point of the game is how players are integrated with the scenario. The system is pretty fluid too and is against minmaxing.
