Truth and Lies for Wu Xing: The Ninja Crusade (http://kck.st/QIzW8C)


Truth and Lies is the 4th book for the Wu Xing: The Ninja Crusade gameline. In this game you take on the role of rival ninja who are forced to work together against the Izou Emperor's army that has been sent to crush you. This book will specifically focus on two of those clans, that are huge fan favorites, the Hidden Strands of Fate and the Will of Iron. These two clans are both metal-ascepted, but are polar opposites - the Strands are a clan composed of lies and manipulation, while the Will of Iron clan seeks out justice in a land full of so much unjust.

The book will not only give new mechanical options (new powers, new clans, etc), but will also build upon the setting information, providing more info on ninja territory, individual clan history and important NPCs usable in your games. Best part of all is that its told to the reader by the ninja themselves, the book being completely in 2nd person. If you want a taste of this kind of book, check out Firebrands (the first clanbook for Wu Xing), which was written in a similar fashion.

Here is a sample of the awesome cover for Truth and Lies by the talented Oshouki, and the majority of the money raised by this Kickstarter campaign will be used to fill the pages with even more amazing ninja art. The rest will go toward to printing costs and paying John D. Kennedy, the co-author, for his freelancing prowess. I have a fun stretch goal planned for when we hit our modest $2000 goal.

We thank and welcome our fans (old and new) to help us get another masterpiece out the door. This one has been long awaited and it is approximately 60% done already, so we are excited about it over here as well.
