Someone before asked me what my commute is like as a salaryman in Tokyo.

It's basically this.

UNDYING RPG

Awesome! I can't wait to scythe my way through Clive Barker's house of horrors, while exploring the dream-plane of Oneiros...

Okay, I'm in, but... scythe...

Ryuutama is about to go live En Espanol, via a Spain-based crowdfunding site!

This is good for us, because if they develop stuff for Ryuutama, by the contract we're developing with them, they will then send it to us in English for you all to see! This is how the Ryuutama community will grow.
 
Apúntenlo en sus agendas. Pasado mañana, miércoles 24 de Junio, a las 10:00AM hora de España, empieza el Verkami para financiar #Ryuutama.

PDF is DONE! All backers should have their copies by now (Kickstarter and Pre-orderers). If not, and you filled out the survey, ping me in private and I'll hook you up. 

For the rest, here's the electronic copy!
http://drivethrurpg.com/product/151366/Ryuutama--Natural-Fantasy-Roleplay

And we'll send to the printers in about a week. Any last-minute formatting/other errors you catch, let us know!

The Greatest Pre-Socratic philosopher. His theories on flux are pretty much basically aligned with early Buddhism, namely the Heart Sutra. This followup article is pretty badass, too:

http://www.ancient.eu/article/183/
 
Heraclitus of Ephesus (c. 500 BCE) was known as the 'dark’ philosopher, so-called because his writings were so difficult to understand. Seeming to hold the common understanding of the nature of life and the purpose of human life in contempt, Heraclitus compared most people’s understanding to that of those asleep.
To Heraclitus, only the philosopher, the one who pursued Truth, was fully awake and fully alive, and he seemed to consider himself the only philosopher of his time.

I was given a small hiring bonus to relocate overseas, it didn't cover everything but some.

This position though is "Native level Japanese; Fluency in English", so I'm expecting mostly hires from within Japan, likely the general Tokyo area.

Okay someone on twitter broke my brain because they suggested running FALLOUT using the Ryuutama system. Even with a Black Ryuujin at the helm, that's gotta be one hell of a nice game of Fallout.

Also, I'd probably make "Light Radiation"/"Heavy Radiation"/"Extreme Radiation" extra terrains (to lay on top of Terrain/Weather), at +2/+4/+8. 

And of course change Raiders to NekoRaiders. "I'll turn you into meat gobunya!"

Noble of course would become "Vault Dweller".

...and that's about it, actually.

Hey all, I shared this with the KS backers, but this is for everyone:

If you want to ask the Author, Ryuutama Staff, or Translators any questions about the project ("Whys" or "Hows" or anything at all you were curious about), please feel free to do so here!

I'll translate your questions and ask the author when I see him next (we game together regularly) as well as the support staff. And we'll compile them into articles for the Ryuutama Director's Cut book.

Here's the link to submit questions:

Questions For Ryuutama's Author Okada-sensei and FriendsThis form is for folks who backed the Kickstarter or Pre-Order of Ryuutama. We're a few days from completion of the PDF and sending the book on to the publisher, and when the book comes out we'll soon be putting together a "Director's Cut" book electronic supplement with the history of the game, this English project, our translation efforts, etc. Sort of a gift to you folks for supporting and being patient with us on this venture. In the process...

HAH!!

El otro día le tocó a Haruka, hoy le toca a Aster, el Ryuujin (personaje del Director de Juego) de ejemplo de #Ryuutama. De paso aprovecho para recordar que el mecenazgo empezará la semana que viene. :)

The owner of this company, Brad, is: * Extremely responsive, both to calls (primary contact) and emails * Extremely fast: He will make all efforts to be out as soon as possible, on your time. * Thorough: I had a very puzzling (even for professionals) wiring/circuit issue. We thought it was resolved (mostly due to the strange wiring in my house, plus the behavior changed), but it came back about a day later. Brad quickly returned, found the culprit after an even deeper investigation, and got it all working again. * Safety-conscious: They spotted a few outlets in the investigation were wired backwards, and a few other things problematic. He fixed them all as we were investigating another issue. No hazard remained when he was done with it. * Reasonably priced * Professional and friendly. The little touches. I would absolutely recommend this service to anyone in or near the Triangle, hands down.
