Usagi Yojimbo RPG 2nd Edition Up On Kickstarter

Many of you know of the Usagi Yojimbo comic book. Others have read it. Some might only know him from the Ninja Turtles toys from back in the day. Well, did you know that there's an RPG? And it's been around for a while? And it's getting a new edition that's up on Kickstarter now? Well, if you didn't, you do now.

From the campaign:

Stan Sakai's long running, award-winning comic series, Usagi Yojimbo, tells the story of Miyamoto Usagi, a swordsrabbit with the heart of a hero, as he wanders a fantastic version of 17th-century Japan.  Now, Sakai's Japan and its cast of anthropomorphic characters come to life in stories you write yourself. Explore immense castles and humble villages; meet bounty-hunters and crime bosses; battle ninja spies and scheming lords; and encounter monsters from beyond the natural world.

Take the role of a fearless samurai, a crafty ninja, a wise priest, or other adventurer in fantasy Japan. Immerse yourself in a richly-detailed world with valiant Usagi, sly Kitsune, gruff Gennosuke, clever Ishida, and other heroes from the comics. Face your challenges head-on, and be a hero!

Usagi Yojimbo RPG: Second Edition has been updated and revised with material from over thirty years of award-winning Usagi comics and the help of Stan Sakai. We've overhauled the game to be easier to learn and to be faster to play. You'll be rolling two six-sided dice, trying to score high. If you fall short of your goal, you may have to make a hard bargain to get what you want.

The campaign's already up and over its funding goal with 31 days left to go.
