Oddly Shaped Dice: Task Force Xan


Some years ago, I ran a one-shot we called "Steampunch," a Victorian Era "Yellow Menace" pulp game that pitted the heroes against Hanoi Xan (a Fu Manchu analogue referenced in some cut scenes from "Buckaroo Banzai"). I always thought that a nifty followup would be a John Woo - meets - Alias modern Hong Kong action movie adventure, pitting a 21st century joint task force (British, Chinese, and American) against a revived Xan. Lots of jumping through the air with both guns blazing, and probably a fair amount of kung fu. Nice gig for Jason Stathem and Ray Park as the Brits.
