[From the introduction.]
Dragon Fist is a game inspired by Hong Kong martial arts movies, especially those of the wuxia genre. This is a game of high-ﬂying kung fu ﬁghters, cackling eunuch sorcerers, weird hopping vampires, and awful demons who are dead only when they blow up. Realistic? Hell no! This is pure cinema. If you want a precise simulation of martial arts, look elsewhere. If you want to have a blast playing an action hero, read on.
Dragonfist, "The Roleplaying Game of Martial Arts Action," was a free roleplaying game released by Wizards Of The Coast as a series of free PDFs on their website in 1999. [...] The rules were a heavily modified version of the 2nd edition Advanced Dungeons & Dragons rules. The default campaign has the player characters climbing a 'Villian Tree', starting with corrupt city magistrates and eventually (at 10th level) fighting the corrupt Emperor Jianmin in his eternal throne.
