“The spirit of water ensures that change is constant, and that there is always something new to learn.” — Asako Beirei, Master of Water

Water is the gentlest but also the strongest of the five Elements, able to heal the most brutal injuries but also able to smash whole cities with taifun and tsunami. Water shugenja are among the Empire’s most peaceful but also some of the most dangerous to enrage. Water is a source of clarity and vision, empowering divination and assisting magistrates. It is the source of life but also the inspiration of the battlefield general; the Element of motion and movement, but also the essential Element of serenity and peace.

The Book of Water is the fourth in the series of Elemental sourcebooks for the Legend of the Five Rings Role-Playing Game. Each book explores different aspects of Rokugan’s world and samurai culture from the standpoint of the chosen Element. This book explores the aspects of Water, from the flowing grace of a warrior fighting with a bo staff to the ruthless tactics of merchants who exploit the flows of travel and coin. Within these pages may be found:

  • A discussion of the weapons of Water, including staves, chain weapons, and peasant weapons, as well as Mizu-do (the martial art of Water) and naval warfare.
  • The courtly and diplomatic arts of Water, with a particular focus on commerce.
  • The power and nature of Water magic, including many new spells of the Element.
  • New Water Kiho and Water-oriented monastic schools.
  • A new campaign setting, the Eternal Danger Islands, an archipelago filled with both danger and opportunity.
  • And much more!

Das vierte Buch der Elemente-Bände dreht sich um das Element Wasser und versucht, auf 202 Seiten Rokugan unter diesem Aspekt zu durchleuchten. Dabei steht der Mantis-Clan im Vordergrund. Konkret ist das Buch damit ein Sammelsurium von diversen Aspekte [...]

As usual another great source book by AEG for L5R 4th Edition. No complaints and so happy they are releasing the PDF versions so soon after the print. Now just waiting for the Book of Void and my collection will be complete. [...]

Format

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.
