Ryuutama: Natural Fantasy Role-Playing Game

Ryuutama is a Japanese RPG designed by Atsuhiro Okada. The game is set in a world where the characters are normal townsfolk (such as bakers, merchants, minstrels, farmers, and the like) who travel a fantastical world together, searching for fun and adventure. 

Andy Kitkowski (who ran the kickstarter to have Tenra Bansho Zero translated to English) is running another kickstarter to create an English translation of Ryuutama. The product looks really interesting and the artwork has this classic JRPG feel to it and makes me feel rather nostalgic. I really hope this project gets funded. 

If you'd like to take a look at the Japanese PDF of the game, you can download it here for free. If you're afraid that you might be pirating something, its okay. Okada made this PDF available to the public.
