BESM Resources

 

We are so excited to be working with Dyskami Publishing to re-launch Big Eyes, Small Mouth (BESM), the multi-genre role-playing game for all your anime and manga adventures! Mark MacKinnon, the creator of BESM, and the Dyskami Publishing Company licensed the rights to release this new edition of the game from White Wolf Entertainment. Dyskami then teamed up with Japanime Games to publish this core game book plus an entire line of BESM support products to expand the game system and storytelling world.

“It’s been well over a decade since I wrote the third edition of BESM, and having the chance to once again produce the game that means so much to me is a dream come true,” said Dyskami Publishing Company President, Mark MacKinnon. “The fourth edition has been under development for many years and is an opportunity to reenvision an entire new game line, updating both the design and presentation of BESM for today’s gamers yet hearkens back to the roots of earlier editions. Furthermore, we’ll be expanding our relationship with Japanime Games to co-publish the BESM relaunch and provide exceptional customer service and support. What a year 2019 is going to be for anime and gaming fans!"

Since the release of the first edition of BESM in 1997 by Guardians Of Order, the anime role-playing game and related licensed expansions has been nominated for Ennies and Origins Awards across multiple categories, including Best Role-Playing Game, Best RPG Graphic Design, Best RPG Supplement, and Best RPG Adventure. BESM Fourth Edition features cover art by long-time BESM artist, Niko Geyer, plus interior art by Shilin, Zirong, Zearyu, Geyer, and more. 

BESM Fourth Edition core role-playing game book contains everything you need to create your anime and manga characters and start playing. No other books are required, though we have an entire expansion line in the works to support your gaming adventures.

This gorgeous volume is a hefty 336 full-color pages with well over 100 beautiful illustrations from talented artist across the world. BESM Fourth Edition features a laminated hardcover with a durable Smyth-sewn binding that allows your book to easily lay flat and stay open to any page.

BESM and role-playing aficionados won't want to miss out on this stunning version of the game: the BESM Deluxe Limited Fourth Edition RPG. The BESM logo is foil stamped onto a vibrant purple leatherette cover, the pages are accented with silver gilded edges, and the binding is enhanced with a handy bookmark ribbon to keep your place while playing.

The BESM Deluxe Limited Fourth Edition RPG will not be available to purchase in retail stores and is available exclusively during this Kickstarter. We are only printing a limited number of this edition, with a small number of extra copies to anticipate late pledge manager add-ons. Should any copies remain after the Kickstarter is fulfilled, we will only offer them at conventions and through direct web store sales while quantities last.

 
 

BESM 4 is actually two distinct games. In addition to the standard BESM Fourth Edition, we are also releasing a stripped-down core role-playing game called BESM Naked: A Stripped-Down Version of the Rules that a complete, stand-alone, alternate edition.

BESM Naked: A Stripped-Down Version of the Rules is a “gateway product” of a sorts, targeted at anime and manga fans who may know something about role-playing but aren’t traditional gamers. It’s also for role-playing enthusiasts who enjoy indie-style RPGs with simple rules and more narrative game flow. With a structural simplicity closer to BESM First Edition from 1997 — yet presented with an eye on illustration and graphic design that lives up to the expectations of today’s gamers — BESM Naked: A Stripped-Down Version of the Rules contains everything you need to play, wrapped in one small volume at an attractive price.
