Adventures in the Hundred Kingdoms is a game full of flavour. The mechanics is simple, with two stats plus skills. I love how the writer creates a living, breathing setting with Filipino culture and folklore. From the Batuk'an whose tattoos tell of their combat prowess, to the currency system that uses bulawan (gold bits), pearls and gold barter rings; every detail helps paint this masterpiece of a setting.

AitHK is a game about normal people turned into heroes that go on epic adventures inspired by the epic poems of Ibálong and Hinilawod, to fight for the things they hold dear, while overcoming great obstacles, like stopping the Tandayag Boar, or sailing across the sea to the Eastern Sky.

Characters earn experience points (XP) by physically fighting for the people and places that bond them to the physical world; whether that be their community or their lovers.

And characters can earn experience by using their character's traits to propel the narrative forward!
