GopherDave is breaking out one of his all-time favorite RPGs for a campaign of indeterminate length. We shall be using the all-new 2nd Edition book that has been release for Kickstarters, and is expected for full release in September.
For thiose of you who do not know what sort of gloriousness that the Feng Shui RPG is comprised of, in a nutshell, it is Honk Kong Action Movie role-playing of the highest order. For a more detailed description... take every John Woo and Jackie Chan movie you can think of, throw in period pieces like Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, Hero, Ip Man, and Once Upon a Time in China, add some funky Asian fantasy a la the Bride With White Hair, and finally sprinkle in a little 1984 and Planet of the Apes (not Asian cinema, I know, but the shoe fits)... Throw it all in a genre blender and hit "semi-puree". What results is something pretty close to the Feng Shui RPG. It's an over the top blast, and one of the easiest systems you will ever learn once you wrap your head around the setting.

It is the Second Age of Man. The Wizard-Lords are no more; their citadels lie in ruins, their secrets are scattered. Ordinary men and women now have a chance to write their names in the chronicles, albeit with the sword far more often than the pen. Will you join them in the quest for immortal fame?
Barbarians of Lemuria is a rules-light sword-and-sorcery RPG from Filigree Forge. Defined by careers instead of skills (a Pirate does not need to buy individual Sailing, Use Rope, and Carousing skills; she is understood to be capable of everything we associate with Pirates), heroes carve their way through their foes en route to glory and riches. (Seriously, beginning characters can wipe the floor with most NPCs.) If you enjoy the adventures of Conan the Cimmerian, Fafhrd and the Grey Mouser, Elric of Melniboné, Jirel of Joiry, and John Carter of Mars, then you'll probably love Barbarians.
