Bright & Terrible: Scions of Atlantis

GM: Dani N   System: Bright & Terrible - 1st Edition   Game Code: RPG17112666

With the Atlantean boot no longer on their backs, the human kingdoms rejoice & throw off their puppet kings. It is this world in which you, the last Children of Atlantis, wash up from the Sea. For ten thousand years, Atlantis ruled the Earth. From the winged children of Black Aerie to the ophidian witches of Graven Reach to the merchant princes of Bazzan, every human bent knee to the Empire of Air and Darkness. But now, Atlantis has fallen. Rumors spread of the Sea of Sorrows boiling and rising to drink the shining towers, or of Mount Bleak exploding in a rain of hellfire, or of an impossible tempest surrounding the isle. Only one thing is certain: for a decade, the indigo triremes of the Atlantean fleet have not stopped to call in the kingdoms of humanity, nor has any vessel sent to trade or treat with them returned. With the Atlantean boot no longer on their backs, the human kingdoms rejoice and throw off their regents and satraps, entering an age of giddy prosperity and bloody war. It is this world in which you wash up upon the shore of the Sea of Sorrows.

Kick Ninja Butt in San, Ni, Ichi!

GM: Elise S   System: San, Ni, Ichi - First Edition   Game Code: BGM17105429  

 A quick trick-taking card game where you are a martial artist who has mastered combat using the elements & engages in a thrilling battle to determine who is the ultimate ninja master! In San, Ni, Ichi game cards represent attacks aligned with 3 different elements (fire, water, and wood). Each element is strong against one and weak against the other, forming a rock-paper-scissors arrangement. The cards also have numbers on them that represent the strength of the attack. Players start out with a hand of cards and during a round take turns playing cards on other players, forming a stack. Cards placed on the stack must adhere to the strength/weakness rules (that is, a card can only be played on top of a card if it "beats" that element). At the end of the round the player with highest-numbered card showing takes their whole stack and adds it to their damage pile, and the next round begins. At the end of several rounds the player with the least damage is declared the ninja master and overall awesome person (also known as The Winner).
