Warrior’s Fist 7 Street Fighter Translation

I’ve finished translating another issue of Punho do Guerreiro, a Brazilian fanzine for Street Fighter RPG (SFRPG). Issue 1 is here, plus an explanation of why I am doing this.

Have you had fun destroying cars in the SF bonus rounds, well now the SFRPG has interesting motor racing rules; plus, this could provide the basis for other sports. A fun new Maneuver: Drunken Feet, a Shadaloo Lab, plus the greatest of the Circuit Legends! Finally a reflection upon the first year of Punho do Guerreiro.

Issue 7

Warrior’s Fist Special 2 Street Fighter Translation

I’ve finished translating another issue of Punho do Guerreiro, a Brazilian fanzine for Street Fighter RPG (SFRPG). Issue 1 is here, plus an explanation of why I am doing this.

Thanks to the Punho do Guerreiro team for this fun issue; extra thanks to Eric “Musashi” Souza and Giovane do Monte for their translation assistance. This issue brings Easter to SFRPG. Circuit Prospects and Circuit Legend focusing on the Karate Kid series. This issue brings a maneuver for the famous Crane Kick! Adventure: Faerie Spittle. Finally … the … Easter Bunny! Well sort of. Actually it is quite cool, definitely check this one.

Special Issue 2

Warrior’s Fist Special 1 Street Fighter Translation

I’ve finished translating another issue of Punho do Guerreiro, a Brazilian fanzine for Street Fighter RPG (SFRPG). Issue 1 is here, plus an explanation of why I am doing this.

Thanks to the Punho do Guerreiro team for this fun issue; extra thanks to Eric “Musashi” Souza for his translation assistance. This issue brings the spirit of Christmas to the SFRPG. Character sheets and backgrounds via the new Circuit Prospects, plus Circuit Legend returns with Khan (The Quest). Wild Strike further enhances the cool and power of animal companions. Collectibles and action figures. Plus Santa Claus!

Whilst translating this I had a fun/silly idea with the idea of an adventure about Bison. in the style of Charles Dickens’ ‘A Christmas Carol’, although I suspect Bison would fight the Ghosts of Christmas and fight Santa Claus.

Special Issue 1

Some computer games include Christmas outfits and events. Street Fighter has had its fun with the concept.

 

Warrior’s Fist 6 Street Fighter Translation

I’ve finished translating another issue of Punho do Guerreiro, a Brazilian fanzine for Street Fighter RPG (SFRPG). Issue 1 is here, plus an explanation of why I am doing this.

I’ve corrected a few errors in previous issues. Lots of pesky formatting issues for this issue, plus some difficult translations, however, I think I’m getting better with practice. But, I guess I’ll still be tweaking things at a later date 😉

This issue has an interesting approach to introducing Changeling: the Dreaming to SFRPG, balancing the dilemma of how best to summarise that vast game setting, whilst retaining a key part of the identity of Changeling. A look at Unique Backgrounds, Glory & Crowds, adding depth to Firearms, Another Golden Pot Underground Arena, CL: Brock Thompson, Combos School is back, and a cool Maneuver: Second Skin.

Issue 6

I’ve finished translating another issue of Punho do Guerreiro, a Brazilian fanzine for Street Fighter RPG (SFRPG). Issue 1 is here, plus an explanation of why I am doing this.

As normal a big thank you to the team that created the issue. Extra thanks to Eric “Musashi” Souza for helping to clarify a few things for me; as normal his assistance and patience is appreciated. 🙂

A dark issue exploring Vampires, Potence, and revealing the Circuit Legend: Mistress of Pain. How are fights recoded? Check out Judges and Ranking. List of ready-made characters. The Arena base of Tetsujin (Cyber Ninjas) from issue 4. Arena of Secret Pleasures. Items of Power. Last but not least, a way to simplify large dice pools in to a single roll.

Issue 5

Warrior’s Fist 4 Street Fighter Translation

I have continued my work of translating Punho do Guerreiro, a Brazilian fanzine for Street Fighter RPG (SFRPG). Issue 1 is here, plus an explanation of why I am doing this.

Another wonderful issue: Alternative rules for how to handle Experience Points in the Storyteller system, Demonic Heritage, more on Developing your own Maneuvers, examination of Firearms, Gun Kata, Cyber Ninjas, as well as Stunts from Exalted. Plus Kabuki Town continues to grow more detailed, and suggestions for how to handle Mega Attributes from the Aberrant RPG (now Trinity Continuum); another of my favourite RPGs.

Issue 4

Treasure & Speculation Street Fighter RPG

There have several interesting Street Fighter RPG posts recently. Firstly, a fun cover by Benjamin Terry fusing the Chicago By Night cover (Vampire: the Masquerade) with a brick border design to give a great street tone; hidden reference to brick destroying bonus rounds? 😉 Chat here.

Update: A link to the commissioned picture has been added below 🙂

Secondly, an interesting discussion about: “What would you like to see in street fighter second edition?” Sadly there won’t be a 2nd edition due to licensing issues, but still fun to discuss ideas, to read the many interesting responses, as well as see what topics others prioritise; definitely worth a read 🙂 Wonderfully Andrew J Lucas joined in the conversation 🙂 Andrew is the creator of Street Fighter Player’s Guide, as well writing the Spirits of the Forest adventure (Adventures Unlimited), and he is also a contributor to Contenders. Andrew generously offered to look for some old files, which he then shared!

The files are in Word 6.0 format, another reminder of what ancient treasures these are 😉 They proved to be an enjoyable read, thanks again to Andrew for sharing them. Andrew gave an interview in 2016 discussing the old Street Fighter design days, which can be read here.

Thirdly, Ingo Muller wrote a new SFRPG adventure. Ingo is working on an English translation; read about it here 😀 As normal the Brazilian SFRPG group is always active and worth checking out https://www.facebook.com/groups/sfrpgbr/

Lastly, an interesting review that I think nicely summarises SFRPG. The article covers the zany, the bad, but crucially also the effective aspects of the game.
