2018 Ryuutama Halloweeen Scenarios

As translator supreme ennui-san LOVES Halloween-themed scenarios, he put together a contest for Ryuutama in 2018 (mainly as an excuse to award lots of Ryuutama-themed prizes to people). We received a wide selection of submissions, so many excellent ideas that we all stayed up late pondering which three were the most exemplary of “Ryuutama and Halloween”.

Here is the collection of just the three winning scenarios: Everfall, All Souls’ Night and Corn Daze. It is a ZIP bundle of 3 PDFs, plus a PDF introduction and explanation of the contest.

Here is the full collection of all scenarios (including the winning scenarios) submitted to the contest, plus the PDF introduction (13MB).

Holiday 2015 Package!

The Ryuutama Holiday Package. This is a 27 page document filled with all sorts of holiday frolics, as well as lots of samples of upcoming supplemental material: The Navigator Class; Terrain Cards to use in play; Rules for Koneko Goblin PCs; and a holiday-themed scenario!
