What is Qin: The Warring States?
Qin: The Warring States (pronounced CHIN) is a roleplaying game of exciting adventure in a mythical China. In it you play a hero of Chinese legend – intrigue, combat, quests, magic and supernatural creatures await you!
In it you will enter the epic world of Warring States China, a world of colourful myths and timeless legends, bold wu xia and beautiful courtesans, wise scholars and scheming eunuchs, exorcists and monsters… All await the daring exploits and noble deeds of a new generation of heroes!
Qin: The Warring States and a wide range of supplements are already available to buy in print from your local gaming store and from our webstore, and right now you can get them all in a fantastic Bundle of Holding.
Qin is set in Ancient China, during the 2nd Century BC in the era known as the Warring States. It is set in the real world, but with the premise that all of Chinese mythology is real – that Heaven and Earth exist as separate realms, that dragons, demons and ghosts are real, and that heroes wield supernatural powers.
The state of Qin is the most authoritarian and brutal of all the Warring States. Its vast and disciplined army stands ready to embark on its great project: the union of all things under Heaven into a single Empire, or Tian Xia. The world is doomed to fall victim to dictatorship and bureaucracy, but it is not too late to change the course of history – all it takes is the action of a few brave heroes.
As a hero in search of adventure, glory or immortality, you will leap from roof to roof, duel against the expert swordsmen of Chu, plot against the rulers of Qin or Zhao, make pacts with the spirits or discover the fruits of the Immortal Isles, decipher oracles carved on jade bi or tortoise shells, direct your troops to capture a fortress, seek wise Taoists and follow their teachings, drive out ghosts, or draw on the power of the Chi to accomplish high deeds worthy of the immortals themselves.
Knight-errant or mercenary, robber or fleeing courtesan, exorcist or alchemist, simple footman or general, destiny calls you all to enter the legend of this forgotten China.
You’re already a hero – but you’re about to become a legend!
Qin uses a unique system that evokes the flavour of the setting – the Yin/Yang System. It uses a single black d10 and a single white d10 that are used to resolve actions.
To resolve an action, both d10s are rolled together and the lower value subtracted from the higher to give a result between 0 and 9. The result is then added to their character’s relevant stats and compared to the Success Threshold (typically 6) – if the final result is higher than the Success Threshold, the action is a success.
If the roll of the dice was a double-zero, a catastrophic failure occurs. If the roll of the dice was any other double, the hero is in perfect balance and achieves a critical success.
Characters also have a pool of mystical energy, called Chi, that they can draw upon to achieve greater successes, as well as to use their supernatural powers to bend the laws of creation, such as jumping through the air, vanishing into the shadows or firing a whirlwind of arrows.
