The era of Wretched Chanbara!, immortalized by legendary directors like Akira Kurosawa and Kenji Misumi, ranges from the epic narratives of Seven Samurai to the violent, intense magnificence of the Baby Cart saga. While it often draws on the rich myths and traditions of Japan and China for inspiration, Wretched Chanbara! is not afraid to venture into uncharted territories, introducing entirely novel elements to its world through a seamless integration of magic and dark fantasy elements. This fusion creates a blend of historical authenticity with fantastical creativity, offering players a captivating role-playing experience. Whether you’re duelling under a blood-red sunset or uncovering ancient, mystical secrets, Wretched Chanbara! promises an adventure steeped in the cinematic grandeur and dark allure of an era that redefined the art of film-making. It is neither a historical role-playing game, nor a pale copy of Bushido or The Legend of the 5 Rings. Wretched Chanbara! offers you a much darker game setting: out of eight kami governing the destiny of humans, five are aligned with evil, one is fundamentally good, and two are considered neutral.
