The Naruto: Shippuden inspiration, I think, is clear and that’s no bad thing. Third Eye Games have moved the timeline on as the Empire’s army clashes on the battlefield against the allied Ninja villages. There’s more information on the official Kickstarter page.
The campaign is asking for $12,000 and with 20 days left on the clock has raised nearly $9,000. Third Eye Games have plenty of Kickstarter experience and a track record in delivering so while I wouldn’t suggest funding is a sure thing; there’s ever reason to believe this campaign will hit target.
The early adopter tiers are about to sell out which means the first print option for the game unlocks at $40, this includes any other digital stretch goals that unlock, while you can bag a PDF copy of the RPG and digital stretch goals for $15.
There’s a chunk of backers who’ve gone up to the $90 tier in order to get the print version of Ninja Crusade 2nd Edition along with The Firebrands, Land of Seed and Blossom and Truth and Lies. If there’s a sourcebook conversion that unlocks then at this tier you’ll also get the newest version.
The 2nd edition means a total of 10 ninja clans, an 11th clanless option, history on the ninja and Izou Empire and the brand new Chakra System.
