Upcoming: Black Tokyo Char-Gen Compendium
Okay, my next project is going to be the huge, Black Tokyo race and character generation book. I'm gathering up all the character options from prior books, revising and expanding it and adding a lot of new content.
I'm going back through the draft now and incorporating a bunch of fan suggestions, really making the options odder and darker, and making some additions that really open up new play space.
I'll preview some of the mechanics later, but for right now take a look at two of Amanda's latest racial illustrations. Up top, we've got an image which will do double duty- it's a great, action oriented image of a young Goryohime battling a more traditional J-horror ghost. It'll be in the Goryohime racial section, or maybe the traits/feat chapter of the as-yet-unamed race book. It'll also be used in Enchantments of Black Tokyo II to illustrate the Life's Resurgence/Life's Violent Resurgence spells, which I previewed a few posts ago.
Beneath, we've got inks of a new illustration for the Hyakki Yokai race. I asked Amanda to illustrate a Hyakki Yokai's skinsuit popping open in mid-fuck, and the HY being totally cool with it and just keep going, unlike her rather terrified date. When she sent me the pencil sketch for this image, I asked her if she'd been watching Archer when she drew it, and she couldn't stop laughing while inking the thing. So Archer makes a cameo in Black Tokyo, having a rather ill-advised fling with a demon lady. Which is perfectly apt.
Anyway, more to come soon.
