Hello, (first post and all that jazz)
I’ve had the idea of a table-top Mana RPG bouncing around my head for awhile now, glad to see someone else has the idea as well. If you need any help, I’m fairly well versed with D20, and other RPGs. Not much of an artist I’m afraid, but I can do stats and try to figure out game balance. Just a quick question to figure out the basic design goal. Are you looking to make a Mana sourcebook that can be plugged into a regular D&D game, or is this more like a separate game based on the d20 system? Either way I’d like to offer whatever help I can. Good luck.

Separate game...I might just set it up so that you can create your own world.

So far, the mechanics I have are pretty basic, and I'll probably keep it that way for right now, until someone makes Advanced Seiken Densetsu d20... =P

UPDATE: Currently working on Abilities and skills. If you guys have any ideas, feel free to post them up. I'll give you a brief description of what each are:

Abiluties - Abilities are passive, meaning that theyre automatically active as long as your character is alive.

Skills - Skills are pretty much skill checks and can have points added to those skills each level to increase their successes (Example: Search and listen checks, Diplomacy checks, etc)

Im currently looking for skills and abilities for both races and classes. Feel free to post up any ideas.

The normal D20 skills should work for the most part, although I wonder if having "open chest" be it's own skill, instead of your typical open lock, this skill makes it so you can avoid any special traps hidden within a treasure chest. (it fits the genre).
AS for abilities, perhaps for the knight Jumi you could give others an AC bonus (or some type of defensive bonus).

Also if you want I could post some plain d20 Mana beasts and which then could be modified to fit the specifics better.

Got practically all of it done myself...and since I've gotten little to no help at all. That means 100% credit for making this goes to ME!!!

Your losses... ^_^

I'll pst up the Final version after I've made sure everything works...

So I remember being on the edge of my seat when I first read about this project some time ago. Was there ever a release? *Hopin'*
