Welcome to the Nechronica Translation Project
This wiki is for the translation of Nechronica, a Japanese tabletop roleplaying game.
As the game is adult themed, this wiki is view-able by people over 18. If you are not over 18, or it is illegal for you to view this in your nation, do not go past this page.
The original game can be found here: http://www.nechronica.com/
We now have a discord! Come and discuss the game with us at: https://discord.gg/VzZ6wMd
We have picked up the Nechronica translation project and are hosting it on our own wiki, due to TLWiki's instability. Nechronica's previous primary translator, I failed jp302, stopped updating towards the end of 2013. Two small contributions have been made by others since then, primarly finishing translation of the Fragments of Memory table and beginning translation of Enemy-Exclusive Parts. We are picking the project up, with the creation of this wiki on 26 November 2016.
While the original translation was servicable, we have decided to double-check the rules after finding several large, but easily overlooked errors. In addition, we believe that, since Nechronica is unlikely to see an English release, that we will make our own release. Our goal is to fully translate the core Nechronica rulebook, supplements, and errata as accurately as possible, and present them in a manner that we feel is most easily digestible for English speakers. This means that there will be some localization, but we will try to minimize it to presentation only.
We have access to all of the Nechronica sourcebooks. It will take a long time, but we will work towards our goal for as long and as hard as possible

Translator's Notes - Notes about translation. Important for people who can translate.
The protagonists of Nechronica are the girls of this world unfortunate enough to possess hearts- the Dolls.
To put it simply, it is a game in which the players become zombie girls and fight against other zombies.
The one who caused the dead to wake- the ruler of this shattered world- is the Necromancer.
The Necromancer serves as both the master of the game and the archenemy.
For it could be none other than the Necromancer who gave hearts to the Dolls.
For in a world filled with mindless puppets, the Dolls- they alone whom possess wills of their own- are no more than toys.
For the tragic comedy wrought by the foes sent against them is a delightful spectacle.
Since Dolls are already dead, they will find no rest when they are broken.
The peace of death came to an end long ago, just as did the world itself.
As we have a cup of tea, beneath these skies as gray as lead-
let us tell the tale of this long, long epilogue.
Nechronica -The Long Long Sequel- is a tabletop (pencil-and-paper, face-to-face, et al.) RPG published by Incog Labs/Tsugihagi Honbo/Patch Works and designed by Ryo Kamiya, previously the designer of Golden Sky Stories, Maid RPG, and Zettai Reido.
