Yokai Hunters Society RPG Zine
Yokai Hunters Society is a rules-light, pen & paper role-playing game about monster hunters in Meiji Japan.
The adventures you can play range from facing the monster of the week to complex investigations or political plots, to routine cleansing jobs. A horror-genre approach to the game’s stories is recommended, with bonus points if it gestures towards the psychological horror characteristics of many Japanese films and comics.
It's written and illustrated by Chema González, edited by Tyler Crumrine and based on Tunnel Goons by Nate Treme. In its original pamphlet version, it was created as an entry for the Goon Jam, and reached 4th place out of 63 amazing entries. The zine is an expanded, edited and illustrated version of that original idea.
