Legend of the Five Rings: Writ of the Wilds

Watermarked PDF

The Emerald Empire is home to many different ethnicities, cultures, species, and ways of life—many more so than most Rokugani would care to admit. From the Laughing Mountain peoples of the Spine of the World Mountains to the serpentine Naga who dwell in the depths of the Shinomen Forest, the Mortal Realm is rich with many tapestries of life.

Writ of the Wilds, a 144-page addition to the Legend of the Five Rings Role-Playing Game, details several new cultural groups and dives into the dangers of treading off the beaten path. This book also taps into the history of the esoteric Dragon Clan and their mediators, the Dragonfly. Game Masters and players alike will be able to enjoy many new mechanical and lore additions to the setting, including:

  • Several new schools, including traditions allowing play as Shinomen Naga, Shinomen nezumi, tengu, and Yobanjin.
  • Rules for the Dragonfly Minor Clan, new titles, conditions, techniques, and a variant terrain type.
  • Guidance on running campaigns for groups of mixed species and allegiances. Additionally, details on various wilderness locales, temples, and running monasteries authentically can be found in this volume.

Shout out for this PDF being released along with the physical book instead of making us wait 4-5 months for it. For that, I am thankful. This book, as all the other "clan" splatbooks of this edition is divided in 3 Chapters. Chapter 1 talks [...]

I overall like this new addition. I especially like the new classes and the ability to play non-human races. I do agree that there is less actual stuff here. The book is mostly lore. However, the stuff that is here is really good. This is certainly not [...]

Considering this is the same price as other sourcebooks it is a disappointment - short, with overlap with Path of the Waves (as noted in other reviews), not a lot of new content. it feels here that Edge have ''phoned it in', throwing all [...]

The same things that Allastair L said in the above review. I am disappointed. What they have (that isn't literally a copy/paste of path of waves) is good; there just isn't nearly enough content. My main issue is the small number of schools an [...]

Huge disappointment. A lot of this content is reheated from other books (reprinted the revised 20 questions from the much longer Path of Waves) and older editions (lore about Togashi, the Naga and the Nezumi), and there's a significant lack of cru [...]

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.
