A Matter of Honor Rulebook


In the provinces of the Lion Clan, the peace of the plains is shattered by the appearance of an oni, a monstrosity from the Realm of Evil. Once the beast is defeated, at the cost of many samurai’s lives, the Lion’s ire turns to the Crab Clan. Are the Crab not the guardians who protect the Empire from such nightmares? Surely such a terrible thing would never have occurred if the Lion had stood guard over the Carpenter Wall. Ill will turns to bold words, and bold words soon turn to bloodshed. With the two greatest armies of the Empire at one another’s throats, who will emerge victorious?

A Matter of Honor is the ultimate Learn to Play Set for the Legend of the Five Rings Collectible Card Game, featuring the streamlined and comprehensive rules of Ivory Edition.

Discover the game and delve into its rich history as a member of the stalwart Crab Clan or the proud Lion Clan, and in doing so get ready to face the challenges that lay ahead of the samurai of the Emerald Empire of Rokugan in the years to come!

Now you can download the complete A Matter of Honor Rulebook for free. Use this edition to replace a lost or damaged version of the Rulebook that came with your game or just to have an extra copy on-hand.

Note this is just the Rulebook, not a complete game.

I was searching for an RPG rules set that didn't use character classes, and this turned up as part of my search. I'm glad it was free! I quit playing CCGs a very long time ago, because they're all money pits.

Original electronic
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.
