Take your favourite anime stories to the tabletop with a new adventure anthology, which draws its inspiration from classic Studio Ghibli stories.

“You must see with eyes unclouded by hate. See the good in that which is evil, and the evil in that which is good. Pledge yourself to neither side, but vow instead to preserve the balance that exists between the two.”

Hayao Miyazaki

Eyes Unclouded is an exciting new anthology for 5th edition Dungeons and Dragons, inspired by classic Japanese animation. The 180-page PDF features 11 original adventures for players of level 1-14.

From setting up your own witch delivery service a la Kiki’s Delivery Service, or controlling a vast mechanical warframe reminiscent of Howl’s Moving Castle across the deserts of Eberron, Eyes Unclouded is an absolute must for Miyazaki fans, as well as those that may be unfamiliar with his work.

While some of the adventures are combat heavy, there are also those that feature none at all, pushing players to find alternative solutions to their problems which don’t involve swords and magic.

As well as the captivating stories, the anthology also features items and recipes for you to incorporate into your games. Each story works as a stand-alone adventure or can be incorporated into an ongoing campaign for something a little different.

The anthology includes adventures by Tineke Bolleman, Bridie Dutto, Brittney Hay, C. Michael Chase, Anthony Alipio, Amber Litke, Kat Kruger, Sadie Lowry, Toto Joe Sullivan, Jacky Leungand and Collette Quach.

Studio Ghibli is globally renowned for its imagery and use of colour in its films, which has captivated audiences for decades. The artists of Eyes Unclouded have tried to capture this feeling within the pages of the anthology, evoking the same feelings and emotions that one of the popular films does.

The original artwork in the anthology has been created by Megan McCurdy, Lessie Nieves-Paugh, Xan Larson, Cammielle Gwisdalla, H. “Ink” Kugler, Mars Skiff, Amber Litke, Morgan Madeline, Sadie Lowry and Auri Cavendish.

Eyes Unclouded is available in PDF format on DMs Guild now for just $19.95.
