Housed within the Ikoma Libraries and the Temple to Tengen are the Imperial Histories, the chronicles of the Emerald Empire. Compiled over a thousand years by adept historians, studied by scholars throughout the lands of the Jade Sun, and containing the wisdom of generations, these documents are a testament to the favor of the Heavens. Their pages tell the story of an Empire that is destined for greatness.

But as the candle-light’s flickering flame illuminates the history of an Empire, it casts obscuring shadows as well. Dark times that were judged better left forgotten, buried deep, hidden… or omitted entirely. And the trenches of time sometimes diverge in places, like the reflections of a scrying bowl ripple and change, becoming something else entirely. Yet every era, even those that were darkest, had its heroes. Even in those distorted images of an Empire that never came to be, honor has always been stronger than steel.

Imperial Histories 2 Features:

  • Thirteen new eras in great detail, including the Reign of the Shining Prince, the Era of the Four Winds, and the Age of Exploration!
  • Also including bold new alternate settings such as the Togashi Dynasty, the Shadowed Throne, and the Empire of the Emerald Stars!
  • In depth looks at the clans and characters of each era, and great ideas and inspirations for your own campaigns!
  • All new Schools, ancestors, techniques and more, some thought lost to the ages.

Among the many excellent books for the 4th Edition of the Legend of the Five Rings RPG, the Imperial Histories series is perhaps the one that I would recommend for busy GMs. Imperial Histories presents several alternative eras for an L5R campaign, each [...]

Imperial Histories was one of the best constructed and most useful books in the Legend of the Five Rings line and its successor does not disappoint. Like the first, each chapter details a different era of Rokugani history, some which have been detailed [...]

Ein Geständ­nis vor­weg: Legend of the Five Rings ist für mich mehr als nur irgend­ein Rol­len­spiel. In den letz­ten acht Jah­ren habe ich an der Seite von tap­fe­ren Samu­rai und Shu­genja dut­zende Aben­teuer im fan­tas­ti­schen La [...]

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
