It's late 1942, and you're an ethnic Chinese fugitive from military persecution during the Japanese Occupation of Singapore. A survivor of imperialist genocide and extortion, you've hidden away into Singapore's marshes to protect yourself from the regime's bullets and blades.

Yet injustice still rules the land; even if you are safe from the law of the conquerors, there are countless others suffering from oppression and predation . With your tenacity and skills, will you protect others from war criminals and opportunists?

This is a playtest of the Da Xia setting and rules, based on the Forged in the Dark system. Da Xia is a historical RPG set in 1940s Singapore, imagining desperate heroics by civilian survivors during a period of military misrule and imperialist misadventureĀ I've been working on as part of my Creative Residency with Singapore's National Library for the past 5 months. It's also based off a very particular point in history and politics - of Chinese-Japanese relations in WW2, in Southeast Asia. Politically, it's still a sore point for Southeast Asia, China, and Korea, with Japanese right-wing politicians denying or downplaying the scale of the imperial atrocities during WW2.
