Touhou TRPG Project – Western Roses

EDIT: Comments have been enabled again. WordPress keeps turning them off when it updates. Also added a picture because this post was boring.

A couple of weeks ago I was looking for a Touhou tabletop RPG and ended up stumbling upon the translated version of Danmaku Yuugi -Flowers-. I took a look at the rules, and at some of the reviews of the rules, and came to find that there were… problems with them. I still wanted to have a tabletop Touhou RPG I could play, though, so I decided that if I couldn’t find one I would make one. A friend of mine told me to look into GURPS, the Generic Universal Role-Playing System, and see if I couldn’t adapt the rules to what I needed. I did and, now two weeks later, I have come up with the first version of the rules for Western Roses, the Neko Arrange created Touhou RPG. If you’re interested, you can read the rules here or by clicking the new little tab at the top of the page labeled Western Roses. Be warned, though, it’s eight typed pages long which, although small for an RPG, isn’t a quick read.

As I said, the rules are based upon GURPS. They’ve been heavily altered and as time goes on will become even more heavily altered but for the moment, if you’re interested in playing, I suggest you take a look at the free GURPS lite rules as well as a frame of reference or to fill in any gaps I might have missed. The rules haven’t been play-tested yet, but if you have any advice on improvements (or play-test it yourself) then please leave a comment on the Western Roses page so I can know what needs to be done to make this a viable system. Thank you in advance, and I hope this project turns out well!

  1. About two weeks, though I wasn’t working on it non-stop the entire time or anything. It didn’t take too long but that’s because I based it heavily on GURPS. I’ll be updating it to make it more and more different as time goes on, though.

  2. O_O This…is…AWESOME!Haven’t played those type of games for a while.(The last one I played was in 2007…)Seems pretty great so far.

  3. Thanks! I need to find a way to play-test it, though, or I’ll be pretty much blindly trying to fix it.
