ENTER THE WORLD OF ROKUGAN
The Emerald Empire is vast and as varied as the seven Great Clans that control its lands in the name of the Hantei Emperor. Its society is modelled after the Heavens themselves. It is a culture steeped in history and tradition, in a land where decorum and propriety carry the weight of life and death. It is a land where spirits shape the very earth and control the flow of rivers and streams.
Emerald Empire explores the places and people of Rokugan, from small villages of fisherfolk, to mighty daimyō in their castles, to deep primordial forests and the spirits that dwell within. This book examines every aspect of life in the Emerald Empire, from food, to dress, to religion and spirituality, and matters of etiquette great and small.
In this sourcebook for the Legend of the Five Rings Roleplaying Game, you will find a wealth of information for gaming in the Emerald Empire, including:
- Details on architecture, culture, religion, and other aspects of everyday life in Rokugan for people of every station in the Celestial Order.
- Adventure seeds, NPC profiles, and fantastical locations to help GMs bring the world of Rokugan to life.
- New options for player characters hailing from the Imperial Families, the spirit realm of the kitsune, or the dread conspiracy of the Kolat.
