GUBAT BANWA is a Martial Arts Tactics and War Drama Tabletop RPG created by Joaquin Kyle Saavedra and Dylan Briones.

You play as martial artists poised to change the world: Kadungganan: the cavalry, the wandering swordsmen, the tide turners, the knights-errant, the ones to call in darkest night in a world inspired and centering Southeast Asian folklore.

“Violence for violence’s sake is not the rule of beasts but the nature of divinity.”

You can scarcely imagine it.

A sky of a thousand

thousand worlds.

The Mahamandalas

Painted warriors of the endless sea, raiders blazing the sea, seafarers that sail to heaven and seize its thunderclaps. Folk of poetry, battle, and ritual.

Confederation of

Holy knights of the Sacral Moon. Soldiers of the Sultana, Cavaliers of The Most High Goddess. Through their Striving, they spread the moongleam across the Isles. Folk of war and expansion.

Lakanate of

Kingdom of


The resplendent kingdom, the refulgent elder mandala. Led by the Goddess-Empress whose righteousness must be spread across all lands to bring all to virtue. Folk of trade and magick.
