This start-up kit is an introduction, an overview of the Qin role-playing game, due out in October 2006. The mechanics presented here are a partial but playable version. They do not include all techniques and combat options, and nor do they present the Qin magic system. We encourage you to test the basic mechanics through a combat between the two pre-generated characters herein.
