Welcome to Dragon Fist!
Dragon Fist™ is a game inspired by Hong Kong martial arts movies, especially those of the wuxia genre. This is a game of high-flying kung fu fighters, cackling eunuch sorcerers, weird hopping vampires, and awful demons who are dead only when they blow up. Realistic? Hell no! This is pure cinema. If you want a precise simulation of martial arts, look elsewhere. If you want to have a blast playing an action hero, Dragon Fist is for you.
What the Hell is Wuxia?
Wuxia [wu-jha] is the Hong Kong name for martial arts films that combine kung fu with magic and other fantastic elements. It translates literally as "flying people" for the way that characters routinely defy gravity with mind-boggling leaps and magical flights. The director and producer Tsui Hark [choy-hok] is the man most associated with the popularity of this genre, and he is responsible for many of its classics: A Chinese Ghost Story, Swordsman II, Zu: Warriors of the Magic Mountain, and New Dragon Inn. Other good wuxia films include: The Bride with White Hair, The East is Red, Deadful Melody, The New Legend of Shaolin, and the excellent Burning Paradise. These films create a fantastical reality populated by heroic swordfighters, seductive ghosts, foul demons, and gender-bending villains. Any of them offer one wild ride and are ripe with roleplaying possibilities.
If you've never seen a wuxia film, don't despair. You've probably played one of the current crop of arcade fighting games; if so, you've got the right idea. Check out some of the movies mentioned above, if you can find Hong Kong films in your local video store. Otherwise, try John Carpenter's Big Trouble in Little China. This was inspired by Tsui Hark's film Zu and does a credible and fun job of translating HK action to the American screen.
Dragon Fist takes place in Tianguo [tyan-gwo], a fictional land based on wuxia films and on Chinese folklore and legend. Jianmin [jeen-min], the emperor of Tianguo, became obsessed with immortality and went on a mad quest to ensure that he lived forever. Despite all his schemes, he failed to find the secret of immortality. Then he was approached by a peasant who offered him a wilted lotus flower and a promise. The emperor ate this flower and instantly became young. Overjoyed, he asked the peasant what he wanted in return. "Souls," said the peasant, "and you had best provide them if you want to retain your youth."
In the twenty years since, the empire has become an evil land, and its emperor, twisted by the tainted lotus, a brutal tyrant. Opposing him are nine secret societies, collectively known as the World of Martial Arts. These societies have recently banded together in a pact to overthrow Jianmin and put a new emperor on the throne. In Dragon Fist, you play a member of one of these outlawed societies, fighting for your land and the honor of the World of Martial Arts.
Your kung fu may be strong, but is it strong enough to change the world?
This is a time for heroes and a time for martyrs. Which will you be?
