Posted By: BullbarHow good is Usagi Yojimbo for doing serious/semi-serious (animal) Samurai action? I'd forgotten I had a copy until recently.

I'm quite interested.</blockquote>It's the Sengoku RPG, by Gold Rush Games. Systemwise, it's the Fusion system, and without any situation setups its hard to actually develop a game into play, but the setting book parts are rich with solid information:Sengoku LinkIt also looks like PIG put out a diceless version as well, which actually might work better as a setting book.Ah, there's also "Daisho", a "one page RPG":http://www.rpgnow.com/product_info.php?products_id=18182&it=1-Andy
Hm. MRG for samurai... I'd want to hack that like so:
For Displays you have Color, Weather, Secret. When you use your Secret, you drop a new piece of information about it, but you don't reveal it outright.
If a player guesses your Secret correctly, then you can't use it in Wirework anymore. But, once during the game, when someone makes a knife demand of you, you can use your Secret to deflect it to an NPC inctead of a character, and the NPC can only respond by fulfilling the demand or killing himself.
So that gives you sort of an anime-style disloyalty drama. I'm not sure how you'd do the sort of interactions you see in Seven Samurai; that represents a much more functional social group than MRG deals with.
