Jackie Chan Adventures for SFRPG

Here is the translation for the Brazilian fan project of Jackie Chan Adventures by Thales. It is a great supplement based upon the fun cartoon series, with a focused plot, a good range of characters, items of power, and supernatural world building, so it could serve as a brilliant series of chronicles. Alternatively, this supplement could add an extra layer of events within any Street Fighter chronicle. Whilst not required, maybe changing a few details, in particular character names, to prevent Jackie overshadowing the party, since the PCs are the main protagonists, not the legendary Jackie Chan.

Warrior’s Fist 33 Street Fighter Translation

Here is the translation for the Street Fighter RPG (SFRPG) Brazilian fanzine: Punho do Guerreiro (Warrior’s Fist). Thank you to Eric and the team for this issue, also an extra thank you to Eric for translation assistance. Firstly, this issue has a tribute to Júlio César Targueta, a Brazilian SFRPG player that sadly passed away on 7th July 22. A Street Fighter version of Júlio has been made, so he can live on in peoples’ games as a Circuit Legend.

A look at Botches and Luck in SFRPG, as well as the using the Specialization mechanic from the other Storyteller games. A new Staff member, the Performance Analyst. The maneuver of the month is Ground Roll, which builds upon Kippup. An examination of how to adjust XP and Renown for Chronicles of different lengths. A look at ways to be more lenient with how Style works, which curiously The Perfect Warrior supplement touched on but didn’t provide details.

This issue is the first in a series of articles about martial art movies, this issue is Brandon Lee’s film Rapid Fire. A movie that is very much of its era, but I also think one of the best (of the best); I plan on covering the Best of the Best series in the future. Eric continues his series of Adventure hooks based upon the Street Fighter II: V anime, which includes the arena of the Thailand prison yard and this can downloaded separate from the PDF here.

SFRPG Updates Circuit Guide + Arenas

The Circuit Guide Basic has had a major update, over 30 pages of sheets for Beginner fighters, a random generator table, and a quick way to tweak the rank of those Beginner sheets. The idea is to make it easier to provide low ranking opponents to fight. Many thanks to Eric for this work and his assistance with the translations. Additionally, over the last few months there have been minor tweaks to Glory Times and the Circuit Guide.

Each issue of Punho do Guerreiro (Warrior’s Fist) includes maps, plus sometimes additional material such as the Lite Character Sheet, so that is currently 32 issues and 8 special issues. By being separate from the PDF they are easier to use in a Virtual Tabletop. These have been add to the folder of Street Fighter translations. This folder also includes all the Warrior’s Fist (PdG) issues, Virtual Combat Cards, the epic duo Circuit Guide and Circuit Guide – Basic, both Solo systems (Meet the Strongest & Dominus), World Tour, Spartacus, Tekken, Darkstalkers, Guilty Gear, Killer Instinct, Double Dragon, Virtua Fighter, and the Mortal Kombat files.

King of Fighters for SFRPG

Here is a translation of the Brazilian King of Fighters (KoF) fan project for Street Fighter RPG. Thank you to the original team of contributors, in particular Odmir Fortes and Eric “Musashi” Souza. This is a massive PDF, 184 pages, covering the many games in the extended setting and big timeline of The King of Fighters, including overviews and character sheets for The Orochi Saga, Garou: Mark of the Wolves, Fatal Fury, Ikari Warriors and Psycho Soldier.

KoF can easily fit in to the SFRPG setting. The first game in the KoF setting was Fatal Fury: King of Fighters, which was a rival game to Street Fighter 2, and as many fans know, SNK employed Takashi Nishiyama, who created the original Street Fighter game. The rivalry eventually led to the series of games: SNK vs. Capcom. So like other fighting games such as Tekken, Double Dragon, etc., we can at the very least draw ideas and characters from KoF to place in to SFRPG, to outright fusing the two together. This raises questions of ranking, since many of the KoF characters are of World Warriors standard. The King of Fighter Tournament would likely be a part of the normal Freestyle Division. Alternatively maybe with KoF having its focus on Southtown and South Town (yes that is a bit confusing) it could be considered a closed Fighting Circuit, requiring characters to either be located in the region. Another benefit of KoF is that it has all the same fighting game plot clichés that one would expect. So, it is also not hard to use KoF as a way to expand/explore SFRPG in to the more globally devastated settings, such as: Mortal Kombat, Darkstalkers, Killer Instinct, Guilty Gear, TMNT, etc. This one supplement easily doubles the roster of veteran NPCs, so if only for this reason, check it out. 🙂

Guilty Gear for SFRPG

Here is a translation of the Brazilian Guilty Gear fan project for Street Fighter RPG. Thank you to the original creator Thiago Rosa. Guilty Gear’s setting is set after a world war between humans and Gears (bio-organic weapons). Over 100 years of fighting, obviously resulting in the devastation of the world, took place, before finally the Sacred Order of Holy Knights managed to defeat the Gear leader Justice. 70 more years pass, a Gear named Testament plans to resurrect Justice! A tournament is created to find the best warrior. There is lots to dive in to with such a setting.

Since the Guilty Gear setting is a titanic leap from that of Street Fighter, how to go about fusing the two settings? A group of options could be to use Guilty Gear as an alternative timeline, maybe for a time travel game (aka X-Men and Days of the Future Past). Another group of options revolve around a modern day Street Fighter receiving dreams, prophecies, statistical projections about what would happen if Shadaloo, Mishima, Ultratech, etc., never mind the many powerful governments and their militaries accelerate their biotech research. Rose, or other magic linked characters could be the lynchpin of such a chronicle. This could lead to streets that are more dangerous, like Double Dragon or Final Fight. The implication of Street Fighters being a part of a military blueprint for super soldiers is an old idea, well the Guilty Gear setting could be the fallout of such a pursuit. Then of course there is the direction of supernatural entities, such as Darkstalkers, Mortal Kombat, or drawing upon the more subtle World of Darkness and/or Chronicles of Darkness. Is there a way to stop such devastation from happening?

Warrior’s Fist Article List SFRPG Update

Some computer problems resulted in a delay to the updates for the list of articles for Warrior’s Fist, which is a translation of Punho do Guerreiro, a Brazilian fanzine for the Street Fighter RPG (SFRPG). Two issues have been published since it was last updated. Over the last few years I’ve found this article list to be useful, I hope other SFRPG players find it helpful. PdG Artigos – WF Articles, with a basic online spreadsheet available here.

Virtua Fighter SFRPG

Here is a translation of the Brazilian Virtua Fighter fan project for Street Fighter RPG. Thank you to the creators: Arnaldo Ferrão, Eric Souza, and Felipe Vasconcellos. In the 1990s, fighting game innovation was fast and impressive, but Virtua Fighter really stood out being the first arcade fighting game with fully 3D polygonal modeling. Thankfully the beauty of the game was not just surface level, providing impressive game play, as well as being something different to Street Fighter and Mortal Kombat. The game also brought another roster of characters and story tournament, that is of course sinister in design; cliché, but that also means it is easy to fit in to the SFRPG setting. Another powerful group of people to compete with Shadaloo, as well as potentially Mishima, Ultratech, etc.

Double Dragon for SFRPG

This is translation of the Brazilian fan made Double Dragon for Street Fighter RPG (SFRPG); the original was created by Fagner Stutzel around 2000 to 2002. In the 80s, I spent many hours at the local arcades watching and playing various fighting games, which of course included Double Dragon. Whilst not my favourite game of its type, it was still fun and it also has an important place in the history of arcade games. The same with the movie, depending on your preferences it is either something to watch or avoid; reviews range from it being awful to good fun. I think it is daft fun, worth a watch, in part due to the hint of The Warriors; check out the wacky gang outfits. The film was my first introduction to the amazing Mark Dacascos; I got to marvel at Only the Strong a few years later. Anyway, this supplement focuses on the movie’s plot, maybe watching the film will help inspire more ideas. Whether you use some of it to add more background details to an existing chronicle, include the Dragon Medallions, or go all in and add the full cast: Billy & Jimmy Lee, Shuko, etc., this supplement is definitely worth checking out.

Warrior’s Fist 32 Street Fighter Translation

Here is latest the translation for the Street Fighter RPG (SFRPG) Brazilian fanzine: Punho do Guerreiro (Warrior’s Fist). Thank you to the contributors and the editor Eric, plus, as always, an extra thank you to Eric for helping with the translation.

This issue examines a way to handle breaking weapons. A look at utilizing the World of Darkness: Combat in SFRPG, IMHO a strange book to use in the WoD, but quite useful for SFRPG. A fighting game genre contrivance is to ignore the concept of referees, makes sense since they not only can get in the way, but also more things to design and take up processing resources. Being an RPG, sometimes it make sense to have a neutral party present in the arena, so there is an article looking at Referees In The Ring!

Building upon Glory Times a list of the Super Combos for the World Warriors. The maneuver of the month is the Super Hero Punch. More Adventure ideas. A look at Shrouded Moon. This issue’s Circuit Legend is Batman; I worked out that his Fighting Power is 2760! (see issue 1). In closing, an update to Solo rules.

Issue 32.
