Roppongans (Ro-pong-ans) are based in Roppongi. They live by a code: A Roppongan always helps a Roppongan. On the one hand, they get up to stuff. Schemes, plots, conspiracies… and not much is off the table. On the other, they live up to the cliche, ‘There is honor among thieves.’
When you play a Roppongan, you earn XP when you address challenges with shady dealing, misdirection and discretion. (Click Here for a Character Sheet)
