Admittedly, this isn't ''that'' good of a fit since we never see any of the traditional [=D&D=] races, although Kara-Tur never had many of them (besides humans) to begin with anyway. But in ''BaldursGate'' you can find weapons from the "Jade Empire" (i.e., Kara-Tur) and many of the design elements of Jade Empire are clearly influenced by [=D&D=]'s take on eastern culture (such as the Celestial Bureaucracy). Any differences can be accounted for by the Spellplague, which not only switched up geography but also led to devastating climate shifts. Eventually, the Brothers Sun decide to take out the god they deem responsible, the Water Dragon, killing her and stealing her power (a common theme in ''ForgottenRealms'').

Added DiffLines:

[[WMG: Ser Roderick Ponce Von Fontlebottom is a [[Franchise/DragonAge Fereldan]].]]
Specifically, he comes from a Fereldan that has progressed beyond the Dragon Age where technology and culture have changed drastically to what is roughly 16th century England. The Cheese on his chestplate is a symbol of King Alistair's rule.

He will be the very definition of a Closed Fist practitioner (if an unusually jovial one), at least up until he meets a certain monk...

Just look at ''Franchise/MassEffect'' and ''Franchise/DragonAge''. JadeEmpire has just as much charm as those series.

to:

* The Open Palm and Closed Fist are not primarily about good and evil; they're about accepting or rejecting one's "place". The morality of what you intend to ''do'' with the Water Dragon's power is secondary to the fact that it's not yours (or any human's) to begin with. (This actually does track the good/evil axis... of a quasi-classical-Confucian ethic, as you might expect to find in the setting.)

to:

[[WMG:Sequels to Jade Empire would have taken place in the equivalents of Korea, Japan, Vietnam, and so on.]]
* The equivalents of European cultures would remain throwaway or oblique references and one-off gags, sort of like Assassin's Creed in different times and places of history. The titles would remain thematically the same but change for each one; the Japanese one might be Empire of Pearl.

** You don't even need to take him along because Zin Bu will complain about it anyway, so Black Whirlwind can certainly live up to his name.

They end their drought, but at the cost of a slower damnation. By suspending the Water Dragon between life and death, her Undead counterpart is free to reign. The shepherds of the dead are destroyed, and the gate to the Underworld is blocked. The golems are powered by the undead, the spirits of the dead can't rest or be destroyed. Eventually, the Jade Empire would be like [[FinalFantasyX Seymour's idea for Spira - a land where there are none among the living, only ghosts going slowly mad from their imprisonment]].
