Brand55:
This should be entertaining.

I like the manga so this will likely be a buy for me. The world of GS isn't really that fleshed out, so I'm wondering how much of the actual setting is in the game. I could see this being a case where a lot of the world-building is left up to the GM to figure out. If they do expand on the world, it'd be cool to see an actual map of the setting.

Also, this would be a must-have for GMs who struggle to come up with names for NPCs all the time.

YES YES YES!
YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!

I have wanted to play this TRPG FOR AGES!  IT'S SO RARE FOR FOREIGN LANGUAGE RPGS TO GET TRANSLATIONS!

I'm still sore that the Polish language only Witcher RPG Wiedźmin: Gra Wyobraźni never got a translation. I love the R Talsorian RPG, but I would have loved to see it. There was a translation on project on 4chan, but it was abandoned part way through. it looked like a fun D6 system with elements of Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay.

Lol, yeah everyone is named just like in Keep of the Borderlands.

I was just reading the first manga in Side Story 2: Dai Katana and it has some fun D&D campaign ideas in it-


* City built right next to megadungeon that is full of adventurers
* Temple has a bunch of mortally wounded adventurers in stasis that you can revive for a price.  They couldn't afford to be raised from the dead so were preserved instead.  It's like a store where you can buy npc hirelings.
* Priests available for identifying magic items.
* Gladiator arena where adventurers fight undead from the dungeon for cash

Charon's Little Helper:
From what I remember - the whole setting is basically just a D&D setting which ran with the 'should you kill goblin babies?' idea, to think if they really are inherently evil. Goblin Slayer's setting just made them so horrible that the answer is "yes, yes you definitely should".

A mix of grimdark but with more hopefulness than something like Warhammer would have.
