Kaigaku RPG


The Kaigaku RPG is a retroclone that blends simple OSR rules (by way of the Black Hack) and inspiration from famous samurai-themed games. You can use this book to play intense duels between bushi, wars of words among courtiers, ninja missions and more.

This book is the free, no-art, no-frills version. It has everything you need to play. You can support the development by purchasing the premium version, which has 20 more schools, crafting rules and lots more setting info.

Take your games further with the following additions to the Black Hack ruleset:

*Ryu: Schools that teach your characters powerful abilities.

*Kiseki: Stones charged with unimaginable power that Ascetics can harness

*Kaigaku: An evocative setting inspired by Japan, China, Mongolia and Europe

*Duels: Rules for dramatic one-on-one ritual combat

We're eager to hear your feedback. You can let us know what you think and leave questions or comments on the official Kaigaku RPG Google+ community (sorry, but this site doesn't allow URLs).

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
