Capable of defeating hordes of enemies on his own, a lone ninja—when given sufficient reason—can bring an evil emperor’s dynasty to its knees. Unfortunately, you’re not that lone ninja. Your evil empire is about to fall apart. You’ll be up against overwhelming odds: your entire ninja army versus a single hero. Are you up to the challenge?
Conservation of Ninjutsu is a single-player role-playing game in which you, the evil emperor, must rally his ninja army to defeat a lone hero who threatens your way of life. The hero fights for good, justice, and fair taxes. Will you let him ruin your dynasty, or will your ninja hordes be strong enough to stop him?
About this Book
Conservation of Ninjutsu is a single player dice game in which you play as the Evil Emperor and his horde of ninja goons. Legend has it that a new hero has been born in a nearby village, and it’s up to you and your ninja to defeat him before he brings peace and harmony to the land.
This game was designed and written in 48 hours as part of the RPGGeek.com 48-Hour Design Contest 2013.
About the Game
To play, you will need a horde of dice to represent your ninja: 3d12, 4d10, 5d8, 6d6, and 7d4. If your dice-fu is weak, you may also just re-roll the same dice over and over.
The die mechanics you will use to play vary from scene to scene, but in every circumstance you will need to choose your hordes wisely. This is a roll-and-keep strategy game, assuming the hero doesn’t destroy the dice you wish to keep.
The fate of your evil empire is at stake. Defeat the hero and your kingdom is safe for another generation. Lose, and the hero will restore peace and harmony to the land.
