At 336 pages, The Legend of the Five Rings Roleplaying Core Rulebook allows gamemasters and players to enter the world of Rokugan like never before.
In the land of Rokugan, the Emerald Empire has lasted for a thousand years. Under the guidance of the noble Hantei emperors, the Great Clans of samurai have protected the lands from threats within and without since the time the Kami came down from the heavens and established Rokugan as the most favoured of kingdoms.
But after centuries of prosperity, cracks appear in the Empire’s foundations. The spirits of the land have become restless and wild. Armies of evil horrors march from the Shadowlands. Members of the Great Clans have begun to wonder if the time of the Hantei is over, and whether the heavens would favour new rulers…
As a samurai of the Emerald Empire, your duty lies in service to your lord, your Clan, and your Emperor. Will you stay true to your duty, no matter what sacrifices it demands of you? Or will you hold true to your own code of honour, even to the point of death?
In this rulebook you will find everything you need to forge your own legend, including:
Rules for creating samurai characterswith rich and detailed histories, personalities, strengths, and flaws.
An innovative dice mechanicthat brings your character’s emotional turmoil to life.
A game where your reputation, conviction, and loyalty matter far more than the strength of your sword.
