Designer Envy

So, I’ve been reading EOS Press’ new wuxia RPG, Weapons of the Gods.

This thing is so good, that I’ve pretty much decided that I’m not going to bother with my Dao of Wuxia project. I had been hemming and hawing over whether or not it was worth continuing, after Green Ronin announced the forthcoming release of their DragonFist game, which would cover the genre for d20…..but now that I’ve seen WotG, there’s even less point.

This game, designed by Brad Eliot and Nobilis creator Rebecca Borgstrom, may just be the perfect wuxia RPG. I really don’t think that I could say anything about the genre that isn’t covered by WotG, and covered brilliantly. If I did anything with the genre, I’d just end up comparing it to WotG, and I doubt that I’d think I had done it any better than they have.
