The Birth of Demon Slayer Legends: A Journey from Hogwarts Live to Taisho Era Japan

Some of you may have noticed that Demon Slayer Legends (DSL) is a port of the Hogwarts Live RPG (HL), which I founded back in 2004. HL is itself a port of Legend of the Green Dragon (LotGD) by Eric Stevens & JT Traub, which in turn was based on the BBS Door game, Legend of the Red Dragon (LoRD) by Seth Able Robinson.

My love for anime and manga started in 2005 when I was introduced to the anime Naruto and then read the Naruto manga while waiting for Naruto: Shippuden to come out. For those of you who are curious, my favorite manga is Fullmetal Alchemist. So why Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba if I love Naruto and FMA so much? Finley (aka !WaterHashira GiyuuTomioka) suggested I make a new game based on either My Hero Academia or Demon Slayer and volunteered to run it. Having never seen Demon Slayer, I watched it, and it reminded me a lot of a space opera I'm working on called Ariadoss and the Advent of Darkness (Book 1 in the Ariadoss Chronicles). Demon Slayer is one of the most popular anime and manga ever and is still growing in popularity, so I thought it would be fun to make a game based in its Taisho era setting as an homage to a great anime and manga.

We want our players to immerse themselves into the Demon Slayer universe fully. So, we are asking for YOUR help as we continue to fine-tune the game's storyline and mechanics. We eagerly invite our dedicated gamers to report any bugs you encounter. We would greatly appreciate your suggestions and ideas about how we can better incorporate elements of Taisho era Japan and the Demon Slayer universe into the game. We are excited about making this a community effort, so please Petition for Help or send one of us a Carrier Crow.

We acknowledge that the transformation from Hogwarts Live RPG to Demon Slayer Legends is quite a leap, and there may be some hiccups along the way. However, your continued support, feedback, and patience as we make this transition is immensely appreciated. We are committed to creating an exciting, immersive gaming experience, and your input will be instrumental in achieving that.

So, welcome to the world of Demon Slayer Legends. It's time to grab your Nichirin Blades and join the ranks of the Demon Slayer Corps. Ready to face the Demon King, Muzan Kibutsuji and his leigion of demons? Or perhaps even join their ranks?

Let your demon slaying adventures begin! :)
