Shinobi: Shadows of Nihon contains additional information for both GMs and players, including:

  • New Skills!
  • New Equipment!
  • New Weapons!
  • A New mystic art -- Ninpo Mikkyo
  • New Shinobi Profession Templates!
  • GM Tips for running shinobi-based campaigns and including shinobi in "traditional" PC groups
