Yashima, Legend of the Kami Masters


Yashima, Legend of the Kami Masters, is a card-driven miniatures game where each player customizes their chosen kami master and engages in player vs. player or team vs. team combat. It includes four characters and four kami, each with their own deck of cards. Each character includes a high-detail miniature.


Legends of the Kami Masters (Core)(GNE0033)

A long time ago the Kami, spirit protectors of the world, were unknown to all but those who practiced Shinto. Then, a cataclysmic event nearly destroyed us. What was salvaged from the wreckage were people who could see kami and bond with them. Those bonds paired with schools of battle lead to powerful clans fighting against the chaos. Powerful fighters, bonded with their kami, are destined to repeat the past in a battle for honor and domination!

Legends of the Deep Woods (Expansion)(GNE0034)

The sunlight trickles through the leaves as you set foot in the Deep Woods. Here, the kami are as treacherous as the sinister vines on the forest floor. Treat nature with respect, and the leaves might part to welcome you. What hidden secrets await in the thick heart of the wood?

Legend of the Icy Peaks (Expansion)(GNE0035)

Up in the Icy Peaks, the weather is as unforgiving as the villagers. But not every heart is cold. Prove yourself with shows of honor and solidarity, and the locals will welcome you to their hearth. Something worse than cold awaits those unfortunate enough to spend the night outside on these mountains…

Legends from Fairytale (Expansion)(GNE0039)

Transported from their own land and time- Mulan, Lu Bu, and Musashi were imprisoned in an arena to fight other heroes in a cruel game of survival. But then one day they found themselves elsewhere again, in a world called Yashima. This time they were joined by another hero of legend, Bruce Lee. Unlike the kami masters native to this land, they battle in the hope that each encounter may give them a clue on how to return home.
