Plot Summary[edit]

Blood of the Yakuza is a campaign setting and scenario package for use with Oriental Adventures. The module describes the Japanese-style island of Wa and the port of Nakamura, detailing the history, politics, districts, architecture, and important personalities of the Tokugawa-era town. The module contains information on the rival Yakuza gangs and the political machinations of the important families and temples, as well as background on the major NPCs of the city, plus lists of names, occupations, and personalities for detailing minor non-player characters. Narratives are provided, rather than presenting the adventures as straightforward encounter plots, and depending on their character classes and backgrounds, the player characters can interact with the stories in many different ways.

As the module was based on the Kara Tur boxed set, its information is older than the information about Wa found in such product lines as the Spelljammer series.

Publication History[edit]

Blood of the Yakuza was written by David "Zeb" Cook, with a cover by Jim Holloway, and was published by TSR in 1987 as a forty-eight page book and a sixteen-page book, with a large color map and an outer folder.
