The Youxia's Handbook

The Youxia’s Handbook is a collection of archetypes, Spheres of Might talents, and optional rules for any kind of game using Spheres of Power or Spheres of Might. The primary focus of the book is to introduce new options for martially-focused characters, to introduce (stance) talents to every single martial sphere, and bring more diverse options to the Athletics, Gladiator, and Open Hand spheres.

This book focuses on the w?xiá genre of Chinese fantasy and their characters, known as yóuxiá. Wuxia as a genre stretches back thousands of years through many different media, from epic novels like Romance of the Three Kingdoms to films like Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon to even cartoons like Avatar: The Last Airbender. Wuxia stories often feature high-flying acrobatics, stunning displays of martial arts prowess, and dramatic heroes with intense personalities. The Youxia’s Handbook can help capture the feel of these stories with new rules and options while also presenting useful content for any style of game using spheres content. It is my hope that this handbook inspires players who aren’t familiar with wuxia to explore the genre, while providing fans of wuxia the tools to add wuxia influence to their games.

For use with the Spheres of Power and Spheres of Might systems.
