The Role Playing Game

Chi-Chian also appeared in a book/dungeons and dragons-esque version role playing game released by Aetherco. This description is found on

“Set in Voltaire’s fantastic 31st Century New York City, where giant worms offer a clean form of public transportation, and New Jersey is an armed and deadly enemy, players explore the political and spiritual tensions among the City’s dwellers– or simply kick some righteous ass. Undo the evils of those corrupt religious creeps, the Patahn Pahrr; explore life with sentient insects like the cultured Cockroaches and the nefarious Caterpillers; hobnob with outsiders like teddybear scientist Dr. Yoshimoto and Chi-Chian herself. Freaks arise!”
