Hot-Blooded Dramatic Roleplay
Camp Karate is a game about conflict. It’s a game about passion. It’s a game about friendship, adversity, and overcoming the odds. It’s a game about bullying, about justice, about being kicked to the ground and getting back up again. It’s about being a kid, a teen, growing up, and being a mentor. Ultimately, it’s a game about life, seen through the cool shades of karate, worked out under the summer sun.
“It is essential to control your passion by means of your will, calming down so that your will is not drawn by your passion.”
— Yagyuu Munenori; The Book of Family Traditions on the Art of War
“Never put passion before principle. Even if you win, you lose.”
— Mr. Miyagi; Karate Kid II
How To Play
Camp Karate uses D4s, D6s, D8s, D10s, and D12s and is a theatre of the mind, troupe-play game.
Each player controls three or more characters, switching between them for each scene. Create your dice pool by comparing your character to your opponent or the situation they’re facing. Spend Passion Dice to keep your cool, or roll them for potentially devastating results. Match or beat the Target Number to succeed, or roll higher than your opponent.
