Role-playing Martial Arts Meets Heart

This is the corner of the website with a whole page dedicated to the main game of this publishing house, Fight to Survive: Role-playing Martial Arts Meets Heart. In a nutshell, it's a heartbreaking, struggling, mundane, down-and-dirty table-top role-playing game about martial artists in the 20th century, where most situations are violent and usually end in sadness. It's diceless, multi-generational, and while it may be cheesy around the edges it tries with the upmost sincerity to do fighting proud.

If you'd like to buy Fight to Survive, it's available in all the finest places, but if you're Canadian like me then I'll draw specific attention to Compose Dream Games, a Canadian online TTRPG marketplace that will save you oodles of hard-earned Canadian dollars. Fight on.


"Fight To Survive is to Rock-Paper-Scissors what Chopin's Nocturne op.9 No.2 is to Mary-Had-A-Little-Lamb."

Fight to Survive was nominated for an Indie Groundbreakder award for "Best Setting", which was nice. There's a whole line of stuff for it, now or coming. A play aid, the "Combat Cards", were just released (December 2023) and the solo game, Solo Martial Blues is coming to Crowdfundr in February.

Fight to Survive (named for the lead song on the soundtrack to 1988's Bloodsport) was Kickstarted in April of 2022 and came out a year later, in March of 2023. It's a weird indie game, and I'm glad it exists. I'm glad to have made it. It's responsible for some of my favourite role-playing memories in a lifetime of engagement with the hobby. I don't know if I'm capable of making a game that everyone will like, but this is one that a few people out there, probably just a few, can love. Its sentiment is perhaps best summed up by the video below.
