Warrior Poet

A unique roleplaying game to be played in one session, in which you play heartbreakingly beautiful mages who fall in and out of love across the distant and crumbling Empire of the Moon. Uses haiku-writing as a core conflict resolution mechanic. Very little prep required. There is no GM, but there is the Ghost-Emperor.

Excerpt: 

The Immortal Ghost Emperor appoints Warrior-Poets every year:to defend the Empire, and to lead the people, and to solve the problems that threaten to tear it apart from within. But, most of all, he appoints them to create haiku: tales of love and loss, of great beauty and betrayal, of fire and blood and death. You are a Warrior-Poet. You will burn bright, and you must leave your mark on the world, lest you be forgotten.
