This is for five sessions of an anime cyber-ninja Forged in the Dark hack called Neo Shinobi Vendetta. We will reskin those mechanics to offer a story of betrayed shinobi trying to right wrongs in a weird future megaplex. Attendance at all sessions is strongly encouraged. Rules will be taught, but familiarity with Blades in the Dark will be helpful. In session one we will create our ninja, build our cell, and send you forth in furious action.

In Neo-Kyoto, Zaibatsu Corporations battle for domination- served by tech-samurai, yogang yakuza, and deadly ninja. But the secrets of the shinobi long-thought hidden may shift the balance of power. Think Ninja Scroll, Brazil, Wu Xing, Appleseed, Cybergeneration, Akira, Lone Wolf and Cub, and Tenra Bansho Zero. You are members of one of the five orders of Shinobi in this world. You and a handful of others have learned that they Shinobi were not meant to be the tools of the Zaibatsu. Instead they had once had their own power, existing at the behest of the Celestial Emperor, the Mikado. But they had been betrayed. Some clan leaders conspired to ally themselves with the Zaibatsu-and rewrote history in the minds of those ninja clans who did not agree. This is a game about the revenge you’re going to take.
Content warning: while we’ll be leaning into the anime heroic, this remains a game about violent characters.
We will be using Zoom for our sessions. I’ll email all players about a week before the first session with the necessary links. Sessions will run up to three hours. We will plan to record, but I will confirm this with the players. The Gauntlet Code of Conduct will be in play and we will use Lines and Veils and the X-Card for safety tools.
If you sign up and your availability changes, please remember to drop from the site and give me a heads up.
