    Default Asian role playing games

    I noticed after a bit of searching that there is nothing of this theme for any role playing games other then Oriental Adventures for Legend of the Five Rings. But I am now curious if there are other adventures and themes and settings for a broader range. namely many Wuxia novels put to roleplaying games. Which then makes me wonder.

    Am I the only one that actually does rokleplaying games on a daily basis?

    Also, if there are others, please say so here

    I play Userjoy wuxia and fantasy wuxia games but I lost interest as they milk the same formula over and over again. Other than that, I mainly play KOEI games but they are mostly character-building or strategy games. Well to put it shortly, I play a range of Asian-developed games, not just of the wuxia genre.

    I see, I play in only to asian based games only thing being none of them are likened to the books nor the productions I seen (thus far Justice Pao & Legend of the White Hair Maiden) the latter of those I am trying to get off the ground into a good game. But you cuold say I'm stuck now on names (I can't understand Thai and therfore do not know the names of the characters.)

    so far though several people like the theme and setting. Only problem being that not many people know the characters adn their names/history How does one work with this problem?

    Just enjoy the story and the game's plot.

    Acquaint yourself as the game puts it. You can try to know more about the characters by asking questions in gaming forums (especially those pertaining to Asian games).

    It's kind of strange though... because if you can't even understand the names, how do you understand the rest of the game? What it's talking about and etc?

    I can never enjoy a game like that, no matter how good it is.

    That is easy to do, moreso when running it yourself (like I am)

    There are forums for Asaisn based themes and settings? Link me!!

    The thing being about not knowing the names is that I know not the actual spellings of eachname. Some I know by heart, but others I have no idea what they start with (IE. does this guy start with a J or a E??)

    Hmm I'm confused now. Are your roleplaying games computer games or forum-interactive type?

    Forum, known as play by post games, I run several in fact, but now i'm wondering if there is any strength of fandom in Asian themed games like Jiang Yusheng novels or the like for example.

    I run one table top game though, only it is Star Wars not Asian themed.

    @!Guo Xiang: Nope, all forum based on another site (which is all ad free and totally free and insanely easy to learn to use as a whole sitewise)

    @!Beaver: You might want ot turn that abouts a bit to yourselves being aware of me, mostly because I personally own 14 games of my own on one site alone. and I play in several dozen.

    You are in luck Xiang. The site wherein I run all of my games is nearby, and free. In fact, if you so wish to join a game on the site, you need only to have a vlaid email address, and a good imanagination, and extra time to have fun with friends. do you still wish for the site?

    If you wonder of whom to seek out, look me up there, I am known as Zeldi Emberclan. many people have one or two games and run only one and have little if any time to even so much as say hi, but me, I'm almost always there on the site.

    It is big, in terms of total games running are 4200 games or thereabouts. So if ya join up I can show you the ropes
