It is Japan 1572, the end of the Senguko period of history. Like many transitions of power the country is filled with strife, warring factions pulling any able bodied men into war, leaving villages populated by only women, children and old men.

Now a small, nearly indefensible village is living under the horror of a dangerous threat that casts its long shadow over the village. Without a defender, its people are almost certainly doomed.

Enter Kagematsu, a wayward ronin fleeing a troubled past. Here is a defender for the village, if only he can be swayed from his meandering course. So it is that several young women conspire among themselves to win his affections and steer him to their causeā€¦

Kagematsu is an unusual and evocative role-playing game intended to be played in a single session. Among its many interesting design choices, the game is notable for the attention it pays to the players' genders, with wandering ronin Kagematsu intended to be played by a woman, and the townswomen desperate for Kagematsu's favor played by men.

This session will be open to players of all ages and experience levels, and all necessary materials will be provided.
