Chaos Dragon is a new mixed media project that currently consists of a mobile game, a board game and an anime. The project is based on a series of table top RPG sessions that were held by DM Makoto Sanda, the creator of the Rental Magica series, under the title of Red Dragon that spanned 6 days. The game involved a brand new original world envisioned by Sanda and has 5 players creating their own characters traversing through the game’s world and Sanda’s planned situations. The 5 players include: Gen Urobuchi, the creator of Mahou Shoujo Madoka☆Magica and Fate/Zero, Ryohgo Narita, the creator of Baccano! and Durarara!!, Kinoko Nasu, one of the creators of Fate/stay night, Izuki Kogyoku, the author of Mimizuku to Yoru no Ou, and illustrator Simadoriru.
Each of the players created their own characters in the game and will have varying impacts in the Chaos Dragon projects. The board game will be titled Chaos Dragon: Hau Shunjuu, the mobile game titled Chaos Dragon: Konton Senso and the anime titled Chaos Dragon: Sekiryuu Senyaku.
Here is a synopsis of the anime from MAL:
The story takes place in Huanli (the Year of Dazzling) 3015. Donatia and Kouran, two countries fighting for supremacy, are causing the world to be torn apart due to the constant war. Amidst the strife is the island country Nil Kamui, which has lost its independence. Red Dragon, the guardian god of Nil Kamui, goes out of control. Will the island country be able to regain its independence?
The Chaos Dragon: Sekiryuu Senyaku anime will be airing this July during the Summer 2015 anime season. Further information about the anime will be revealed soon.
