Ryuutama Natural Fantasy Roleplay
Play as a typical NPC compelled to take a fantastical journey!
Ryuutama is an RPG developed in Japan by designer Atsuhiro Okada. It is set in a world where the NPCs of the village (the bakers, farmers, shopkeepers and healers) set off on a wonderful adventure exploring a fantasy world together.
The characters are travelers in a world without classical fantasy wizards and warriors. Instead, the characters are minstrels, merchants, healers, hunters, artisans, farmers and nobles who decide to leave their towns and explore the world.
Using a light rules system based on polyhedral dice where the randomness in results leads to more story development, Ryuutama provides a framework for travel-focused stories fun for adults and enjoyable for all ages.
The game master also creates a special character with its own unique character sheet, called the "Ryuujin". The half-dragon Ryuujin remains "offscreen" most of the time, but watches over the other characters, and can provide limited spells and abilities to support them. The GM provides adversity that the players have to overcome, but at the same time they protect and nurture the characters.
