Hi everyone, I'd like to share ideas with whoever is running or playing a roleplaying campaign set in old Japan. The one I'm running is with RuneQuest 6th edition and is set in the Sengoku era. I'm using the campaign Shiki by Michael Montesa for the Sengoku RPG as a basic frame. I blog about it. I'd like to read about your campaigns! Here you can see the map I did based on the one provided in Shiki. You can translate the text into your language using the Translate Button on the right margin.

I missed the Land of Narrow Paths kickstarter - is there going to be a way to get the pdfs of the maps anytime?

I've heard wonderful things about this game from Michelle Valenzuela and would like to start a group in Dallas, Texas. Unfortunately all of the links I try to take to view the material you posted go to dead url and domains.
I just need to access the basic character building and abilities mostly with the rest coming from homebrew supplements.

Thank you again for proving a wonderful expansion to the table top genre.

Now this is another cool map to share.
This Stanford Research Lab article talks about the difficulties of digitizing a Japanese tax map from 1837. It said, "The map measures 11x17 and was too large to image in our oversized imaging lab." I thought, psssh, 11"x17" is too large? Then I realized they meant feet. (Stanford Library):

Hey folks. I'm kind of juggling a lot of stuff right now. But one of those things is going through the transcripts and images of the old blog and transferring it to the new one. WordPress allows for dates to be backlogged and other neat stuff, so when I get around to finishing this process, I'll go through this community and edit the links to my posts. Thanks for your patience, everyone.

Hello again everyone. I mention why Vagabonds has taken a back seat in this blog post. And yeah, my blog is (sorta) back from the dead. I actually appropriated some of my draft of a Vagabonds post to write this one. This post talks about a visit to an area called Jinbōchō, and how that pushed me towards an interest in the Edo era.

Hello, everyone! A quick notice: Vagabonds has essentially merged with the A Land of Narrow Paths franchise. Any material we release for the Vagabonds roleplaying game will be done through the Tiny Altar Press imprint. We are working on setting up a comprehensive, new website/blog that covers the time period and our products (both visual and written). Vagabonds is still around, but I just moved into a new day job/location in Japan, and I'm also working on A Land of Narrow Paths in my free time. The material will surface, and all of you will be the first to know.

P.S. -- Even though I haven't posted in this community in a long while, I still watch it, and Google+ generally. Spam, posting links to your projects without permission, and so on, are always going to be promptly deleted. I want to keep this community dedicated to discussion of the Edo period / Tokugawa era, and applications of that time period to gaming, creative writing, etc.

Thanks for continuing to follow us! New, exciting communities and discussions await, and we're excited to unveil various new projects post-A Land of Narrow Paths. :)

Hi! I've learned just now about Vagabonds, and I'd really like to know more about it. 
I've tried to visit the game website, but it seems to require some sort of registration/password, so... where can I find an overview of the game? And when do you think it'll be released?
Thank you!
