Land of the Rising Sun


UKGE People's Choice Award, 2021

Land of the Rising Sun

LotRS Warrior

For centuries, the Japanese have called their islands the Land of the Rising Sun. Set in Feudal Age Japan, this sourcebook for 5th edition of Chivalry & Sorcery features the Japan of legend, with brave samurai, stealthy ninja, crafty cat spirits, terrifying demons, awe-inspiring Kami and Buddhas, and lovely geisha. It rests comfortably between the subdual of the Ainu and before the coming of the Europeans.

Adventure and Honour in Feudal Japan

Land of the Rising Sun covers the late Classical period of Japan, through the middle of the Feudal period, circa 850–1500 CE. Character generation follows a similar path as in 5th Edition Chivalry & Sorcery, giving you and your players the tools to create characters from Samurai to Ninja.

The Magick rules draw on the Japanese elements of Air, Earth, Fire, Metal, Water and Wood, while the Religion rules allow people to play Buddhist or Shinto Priests, adding other branches of religion to those found in Chivalry & Sorcery.

  • 30 New Vocations to Follow
  • 14 New Species for Characters.
  • Follow Buddhism or Shintoism.
  • Over 90 New Skills
  • Over 100 New Spells & Over 30 New Acts of Faith

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.
