Edge Studio, the new guardians for the Legend of the Five Rings, has released its 5e conversion Adventures in Rokugan through DriveThruRPG.
Taking over from Fantasy Flight, who held the reigns before, after an Asmodee shuffle, Edge Studios seems to be keeping the game open in its bespoke system and pushing into the booming popularity of Dungeons and Dragon’s 5e as well.
The rulebook covers creating samurai characters, with their rich histories, personalities, strengths and flaws. Adventures in Rokugan has a rule for getting into your character’s emotional turmoil and bringing it to light.
Adventures in Rokugan is a game about reputation in a world where it matters, with loyalty, more than anything else.
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 favored 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 favor 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 honor, even to the point of death?
