'''Which is more important: your desire or your life?'''

''Your life's work, uniting warring kingdoms under a banner of peace and prosperity.''
''Your one true love, a blind musician whose entire family was slaughtered by mercenaries.''
''Your integrity, healing your name from the blood and bruises of a violent, reckless youth.''
''Your freedom, forbidden to you by your iron-clad place in a privileged, insulated world.''

'''You can never have both.'''

''Mist Robed Gate'' is a tabletop roleplaying game written by Shreyas Sampat which emulates emotionally difficult kung-fu action, such as WuXia and some more {{Melodrama}}-inspired anime. MistRobedGate games almost always swing between {{Tearjerker}} and KillEmAll. And, of course, EverybodyWasKungFuFighting in every game. It is available [[http://www.indie-rpgs.com/games/unstore/game/13 here]].
