A Game of Wuxia Melodrama

Hearts of Wulin is a roleplaying game of wuxia melodrama. Players take the role of skilled martial artists in a world of rival clans, conspiracies, and obligations. The game builds on the Apocalypse World engine, and is most strongly influenced by Monsterhearts 2Masks, and The Veil

​Hearts of Wulin emulates Chinese wuxia TV series like Smiling Proud Wanderer and Fox Volant of the Snowy Mountain, Chinese martial arts novels from the second half of the twentieth century, and films like Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. In these tales, romance is as dangerous as a blade. Everyone has ties to factions, loves they can’t quite express, and secrets which will shake them to their core. As in the source material, stories in Hearts of Wulin are driven by the characters’ duties, romantic desires, and entanglements with other characters.
