I am excited to see this game is getting support, and will be buying the revised edition when it comes out. I have hope that the writer of this series will make another great game or, at worst, an adequate game.

I am currently running a campaign in R&R and I do have to say that my group really enjoys the setting. If this changes at a later point, I will be writing a different review. In my campaign I am using some AD&D 1st ed. Oriental Adventures systems for Family ancestry, inheritance, and the honor system (with the extra stat points for a new character, if the dead character had any honor), which keeps my players from making like sociopathic samurai who just kill everything without proper reason.

I have experience GMing OD&D (BEMCI / Rules Cyclopedia), AD&D 2nd ed. Advanced, D&D 3.5, and Palladium's Rifts. I am hoping to run C.o.C. at some point. The first thing that came to mind when designing my campaign world was the 2nd ed. Birthright setting which has heavily influenced my campaign.

I really enjoy this system but do admit to having to keep mixing in different tricks and traps I picked up while GMing other systems. I did kit bash quite a few other rule systems into my campaign. With that being said, I do believe this is a solid game. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to play a light and fun campaign about samurai in a Sengoku Jidai'esque continent where demons and enemy lords are all around ready to strike at any moment.
