Silken words carry death as
surely as a katana

Far from the fields of war, the Great Clans of Rokugan struggle against each other behind the walls of elegant palaces and amidst the theater of great public events. They understand that politics and diplomacy - the arts of the court - are no less important to their ongoing finght for power and influence than the sword and the bow.

But as with war, the subtleties of court play a more prominent strategic role for some Clans than for others.  Masters of Court views three such Clans - the elegant Crane, the cunning Scorpion and the relatively new and enigmatic Spider -  through the lens of their practice of diplomacy. One chapter is also devoted to the Otomo Family and their relationship to teh Great Clans. Masters of Court features:

  • New and updated character creation and development mechanics focusing on Social Skills and Courtiers.
  • Descriptions of palaces that serve as particularly important focal points of plitical and diplomatic activity.
  • New Exclusive Spells for the Soshi Deceiver Advanced School.
  • New mechanics for the Otomo, the manipulative arm of the Imperial families.
  • Profiles and NPC stats for prominent and otherwise interesting political figures in the Crane, Scorpion and Spider Clans.

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.
