Ryuutama is fantastic. Despite some translation hiccups, it gets pretty much everything right, with a simple, consistent system that's well-tuned for actual play. PS: read the letter from the creator in the back; it's fascinating.

That game caught my eye back when Roll 20 did a series on it. It seems really neat.

Reading Ryuutama, for all the sweetness and light of its tone, it's not not difficult at all to imagine a subversion of it. Part of the Ryuujin's jobs is to fuck with the players if things get too boring, after all. It's not difficult to extrapolate that to the half-dragons - particularly the Crimsons and Blacks - actively destabilizing civilization to keep things interesting, in the Chinese curse* sense.

When asked how exactly a journey with a black dragon is supposed to work, Ryuutama's author described one campaign he did where the PCs were travelling through the end of the world with the full knowledge they were likely to be the last people to see most of the sights they saw, if not the last people period to go travelling.
