Demonslayer: Siege of Mt. Kunlun
Demonslayer: The Siege of Mt. Kunlun is a deck-building game that is based on the story “Warriors of Magic Mountain.” In one game of Demonslayer, there are 8 Heart Eaters and one “Overlord;” a leader of that wave of Heart-Eaters. Demonslayer: Siege of Mt. Kunlun is not, strictly speaking, a game of inter-player competition. Players compete with each other to have the honor of being the most successful at protecting the heavens and Earth from the demon hoards. Yet players are essentially cooperating to defeat the enemy.
Each player takes control of one Sect of the Kunlun Immortals and each Sect of Immortals plays differently from each other. The Kunlun Sect excels at bringing high-powered Immortal warriors out quickly, each building on the other’s strength. The Qicheng sect is good at calling on reserve Immortals to join the battle. The Kongtong Sect is proficient at Alchemy; creating powerful artifacts which help the Sect in its battles against the Heart Eaters. The noble Wuyi Sect Immortal Warriors sacrifice themselves for devastating combo attacks.
The enemy of the game are the “Heart-Eaters;” demonic warriors who have attained immortality by reveling in lustful destruction and excess. Many of the heart eaters have spiritual parasites – called “Miasma” which infect the players after slaying. However, players also sometimes attack “Treasure Beasts” which can grant players special abilities once they are won.
Every turn, players play a “hand” of cards, building up the player’s “ready deck” and attacking the demon enemies. Each turn of the game is strategically important; one wrongly played hand can mean the difference between first and last place. By defeating the Heart-Eaters, each player accumulates Cultivation. At the end of the game, once all the Heart-Eaters are defeated, the player with the most Cultivation is the winner.

Chuubo’s Marvelous Wish-Granting Engine (Hardcover)
‘Sometime after the world drowned I found myself on one of the boats that go to Town.
I didn’t know yet that the world had fallen.
Being and nothingness were swallowed, both of them, by the tidal wave of the Outside, but I hadn’t noticed yet, because I’d been living in one of the places that got covered by it, and so I’d stopped existing in any kind of defined way for a little while.
Then one of the exploring boats found Suzhou, where I’d been living. It made Suzhou exist again, more or less. It stopped being a wild, chaotic delirium and became a place again . . . more or less.’
