I call a Jadepunk campaign a Jadepunk Tale. As anyone who roleplays can tell you, a campaign can be a single game session or a twenty-year adventure. Since Jadepunk has been out for awhile, I’d like to get a sense of how other people are playing the game.
What tales are you telling? Who are the archnemeses of your players? What’s your Jianghu society’s name?
Even if you aren’t running a game of Jadepunk currently, what would your Jadepunk game be about?
Leave your answer in the comments below (and link the community to any campaign materials you may have online). I’ll start with a description of my favorite Jadepunk Tale –– the one that I have yet to play but that started the idea of Jadepunk, and that I hope to write a novella about very soon.
I just received a strange letter from The Governor’s Office in Kausao City. Did you get it yet? It’s sort of…well, I’ll let you read it for yourself.
I’ve attached the letter at the bottom of this post but transcribed it below for those of you who can’t read Túyangan:
From: Office of the Governor of Kausao City
To: The Peoples of the Great Nations
It has come to our attention that some employees of Kausao City’s mailing service have been colluding with terrorist cells that collectively call themselves The Jianghu. City Watch agents have found three letters that describe treasonous activities against The Council of Nine. Rest assured; those responsible will be brought to justice.
The Governor has launched a full investigation, but until all suspects are found, we ask that you show all letters delivered to you by the official mailing service to your local Kausao City ambassador’s office.
Failure to comply with the above mandate will result in your immediate arrest and extradition to Kausao City for crimes of collusion with known terrorist cells.
Thank you for your cooperation,
Assistant to The Governor of Kausao City
I’m going to try and get my hands on some of these “treasonous” letters and find out more (can they really extradite us for keeping them?). If I manage to find any, I’ll let you know – you might want to subscribe to the blog (at the bottom of this page) to make sure you don’t miss anything.
Here’s the letter, so you can see for yourself.
UPDATE: Another letter has arrived.
Kausao City is a fictional location in the world of Jadepunk.
