''Feng Shui'' is a classic cinematic action [[TabletopGames Tabletop Game]] created by Robin D. Laws, based on his CollectibleCardGame ''Shadowfist'', that sets out to emulate Hong Kong action movies. There were two versions of the first edition, one by Daedalus Entertainment in 1996, the second by Atlas Games in 1999, which kept the original text, added some extra archetypes from a supplement, and gave it new art and layout. A full second edition, ''Feng Shui 2'', came out in 2015, overhauling the mechanics and setting, and [[https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/atlasgames/feng-shui-2-action-movie-roleplaying-game-by-robin had a Kickstarter]]. The Kickstarter included ''Literature/BlowingUpTheMovies'', a collection of essays on action movies and how to incorporate them into roleplaying games (focused on ''Feng Shui'', but with a lot of advice being applicable to other games as well)

* RetiredBadass[=/=]MandatoryUnretirement: One of the campaign models outlined in Feng Shui 2 is "Getting Too Old For This Shit", which allows you to play your old Feng Shui [=PCs=] under the new system. The Chi War of the game is set 20 years after the events of the old game, so returning characters will have a few years on them, and can play either as their old archetype, or as a new archetype of their player's choice.
