* '''Gambling''' - A genre of movies inspired by the movie ''GodOfGamblers'' starring Chow Yun-Fat, this genre features immensely talented gamblers in the games of their lives, whether to rip off the Triads, lend aid to others, or just win it big. Since Gambling is primarily a modern day genre, there's plenty of overlaps with Gunplay.

In 1999, Event Horizon Productions was bought by Guardians of Order (makers of ''BigEyesSmallMouth''), which produced a second edition of HKAT written by a team that did not include Gareth-Michael Skarka, which adapted the game for the Tri-Stat system. Opinions are... somewhat divided over it, but there was only one supplement released for the game, and that was the Wuxia supplement ''Blue Dragon White Tiger''.

Added DiffLines:

* KungFuKid - ''To Live and Die in HK'' allows you to play one of these, which is useful for those times when one must play out a sequence from a character's childhood, or when the GM wants to run a game that involves kids kicking ass. They primarily get limited stats, limited skills, and some new Signature Moves.

Event Horizon Productions came out with three major supplements for HKAT, including the excellent ''Triad Sourcebook'', which is a definitive resource on TheTriadsAndTheTongs and their use in Hong Kong style gaming no matter what you're playing, and ''To Live and Die in HK'', a supplement that is to HKAT what Golden Comeback was to FengShui, and features rules for car and foot chases, new rules for wire fu, new Signature Moves for your characters, new skills and spells for your roles, and most importantly, rules for "Non-Studio" campaigns for those who do not want to play actors and/or want to play in something resembling a more traditional campaign setup.

HKAT's difficulty ratings in combat are based on how important a character is to the general plot rather than their general skill ratings. Characters of no Importance are typically innocent bystanders who generally don't offer any reason to be attacked (and often make for prime KickTheDog fodder for the bad guys). Characters of Minor Importance ({{Mook}}s and {{Red Shirt}}s) are among the easier targets to hit and tend to go down in droves. Characters of Moderate Importance (minor named characters) are the standard for named Extras and are a bit tougher to take out than Minor characters. Characters of Major Importance comprise {{Player Characters}}, important allies and major villains including TheDragon, and Extreme Importance is reserved for the BigBad and other characters who are generally not taken down until the final scene.
