White Box Eastern Adventures: Sketches Part 3

I am in the process of writing an Old School Revival RPG inspired by Charlie Mason’s White Box: Fantastic Medieval Adventure Game.  The working title for my game is ‘White Box: Eastern Adventures’, which will be set in a generic medieval Japanese fantasy setting.  When complete, I will make this game available as a free PDF on Drive Thru RPG, with printed copies sold at cost.

I have started the process of sketching art for this book in late December. Part 1 and Part 2 of this series previews my earlier drawings.  My most recent drawings are included in this post.

The above drawing is of a soldier-type hireling, wearing ashigaru style armour. The drawing below depicts two hirelings, equipped with large backpacks necessary for hauling dungeon loot and treasure.   Both drawings will be used in ‘Chapter 6: Hirelings’. 

Above is my second ninja illustration; I am planning to use this drawing for the Ninja Character Class Section (Chapter 2: Character Classes).

Both the drawing above and the one below depicts Shugenja (magic-users).  The drawing above includes a Koropokuru, showing the height difference between Korpokuru and humans.  These illustrations will either appear in the Shugenja Character Class Section (Chapter 2) or the Shugenja Spells Chapter.

White Box Eastern Adventures: Sketches Part 2

In my previous post, I posted the first batches of drawings for the Eastern themed iteration of Swords and Sorcery’s White Box RPG that I am working on.  I have included some of my more recent drawings in this post.

There will be three demi-human races in ‘White Box: Eastern Adventures’ (the working title for the book): the Kitsune, the Koropokuru and the Tengu.  I am planning to use the below four drawings for the demi-humans chapter (Chapter 3: Demi-humans).

The below drawing of the adventurer carrying the lantern will likely appear in the first chapter (Chapter 1: Getting Started).

This is a second profile sketch of the Bushi.  I am planning to use it (along with my previous Bushi sketch) for the class description of the Bushi (Chapter 2: Character Classes).

The specialty tools of the Ninja will appear in the class description for the Ninja (Chapter 2: Character Classes.

I am planning to use the below drawing in ‘Chapter 4: Equipment and Services’.
