The double suicide of the doomed lovers.
The courtesan who cannot escape her past, no matter how far she runs.
The mother who will sacrifice her own child to protect the infant daimyo.
Forty-seven Ronin.

These are the themes of Edo Japan. Come and create your own version, using the beautiful Floating World wood-cuts of the National Gallery of Victoria.

Kabuki Banruku is a game that allows players to explore the Edo Period of Japan through Kabuki or Bunraku (puppet) theatre. The National Gallery of Victoria is creating this game from its Floating World wood-cuts - beautiful images from 1600 - 1850 Japan. Eventually, it will be a computer game. But for Conquest 2008, I ask your indulgence in play testing the mechanics using tabletop role-playing (with some lovely props).
