The First of the Wuxia Action Series, Weapons of the Gods was a long time in coming. For those who want to get a taste of the book (or just get the base rules), Eos Press has decided to make the entire first chapter, all sixty-five pages of it, available for sale here on RPGnow!
THE Ancient Chinese Fantasy Game, Weapons of the Gods is based on the Tony Wong kung fu comic of the same name. If you've seen it done in a kung fu movie or a comic, you can do it here - the game handles kung fu madness, intrigue, massive battles against armies of followers and of course, the powerful magic weapons of the very gods themselves.
