Accounts of Strange Incidents
“The sound of the Gion Shōja bells echoes the impermanence of all things; the color of the sāla flowers reveals the truth that the prosperous must decline. The proud do not endure, they are like a dream on a spring night; the mighty fall at last, they are as dust before the wind.”
Heike Monogatari is a Fate Accelerated Edition alternative to Blood & Honour which was made to better support the more light-hearted style and gameplay of the Accounts of Strange Incidents table. It finds inspiration from the real Heike Monogatari and seeks to stay true to the source text’s themes of impermanence — mujo — and karma while still supporting player characters who are proactive, competent, and dramatic. Heike Monogatari is best understood with a copy of Fate Accelerated opened.
