In the Legend of the Five Rings Roleplaying Game, players take on the role of individual samurai whose honor and loyalty will be put to the test. These samurai serve their lords as warriors, courtiers, priests, or monks and embark on adventures filled with drama, suspense, humor, romance, and horror. All the while, they must grapple with their human emotions and choose between following their heart’s desire or doing what society — and the Code of Bushidō — demands of them. These personal stories of triumph and tragedy will reverberate across the Emerald Empire and shape the very future of Rokugan.
Will you serve the emperor and bring honor to your family? Or will you succumb to selfish desires and fall among the ranks of the empire’s most infamous villains?
