In the land of Rokugan, the Emerald Empire has lasted a for a thousand years. Generations of

past heroes have staved off crises and catastrophes that threatened to bring the Emerald Empire

low, becoming legends of Rokugan.

Now the task falls to you. Whether you are the scion of an esteemed samurai line, a farmer

with ambitions, a wanderer who simply wants a quiet life, or an outsider who seeks a destiny in

Rokugan, the fate of the realm may well rest in your hands.

So draw your blade, study your invocations, sharpen your wits, and prepare to face unearthly

horrors and mortal intrigues alike as you take on the role of one of Rokugan’s foremost heroes!

In this rulebook you will find everything you need to forge your own legend, including:

  • Rules for species, backgrounds, classes, feats, and more to create iconic heroes of Rokugan.
  • Using the rules of the 5th edition SRD, this book is completely compatible with the world’s

most popular roleplaying game.

  • A new motivation system to create characters with dynamic goals using the inspiration

system.

  • Guidance on running games in the vast and vibrant world of Rokugan.
  • Threats to challenge even the most hardened heroes.
  • An included adventure, A Grim Inheritance, where PCs of levels 1–3 venture into a haunted

castle in the forbidding Shadowlands

Just got a physical copy of the book and managed to play-test it a little. But I'm surprised at the number of mistakes in the book, most of them are small and can ignored at a glance, allowing me and my group to play a session using it and enjoy it, but we definitely need an errata. Because as it stands I have no idea when the Pilgrim class gets what between 2nd and 3rd level as their table says one thing and the feature description says another, or both in the case of externalizations.

Errata or updated PDF ASAP please.

On page 88, the Ritualist class table lists "Channeling" as a 3rd level class feature. However, I can't seem to find where the description of that class feature is. Is this a possible misprint?

Looks like it, since it doesn't appear at all in the index.

I saw the pages-long lecture on how to not be what amounts to a jerk and decided I don’t need another woke RPG product. I appreciate Edge including it in their preview and letting me know to save $25.00.

'I saw a pages-long lecture on how to not be what amounts to a jerk and' decided that it somehow made the product bad? 'Oh no! The books telling me to try and respect other cultures!' 'Its woke!'
Seriously, it's got hundreds of pages of solid material and everyone focusing on the two pages that can be ignored is ridiculous.

I have a question concerning Resonating Strike.( pg 101) It seems that if the PC hits the npc, the npc gets no saving throw to the reoccurring damage.

That's how I read it. If it hits they suffer the damage for a number of rounds equal to the highest die result on your hit die. If they get hit by resonating strike again the number of rounds they take damage is extended by the highest hit die result.

Picked up a hard copy at gencon and am extremely disappointed. This is like a bastardizarion of Rokugan and L5R as a whole. I understand this isn't meant as a replacement for the original line but it's like they didn't even try to adhere to anything that made Rokugan what it is. Stay away from this monstrosity at all costs.

Question: Did they add the Wasp clan in this or anything in this book? Or at least include something that can modify and reskinned to play one? Basically some sort or ranged focused class or subclass

I disagree. I usually stay away from 5e-ifying cashgrabs, but I honestly believe their version is a good compromise between the ideas of Rokugan and 5e, without changing too much, and adhering to the "keep it approachable" philosophy of 5e.

Moreover, it even fixes a lot of the issues I have with 5e itself, but in doing so, it does become incompatible with most other 5e products.

If you care about the actual spirit and vibe of L5R, play L5R. This is a 5e version of a certain poorly named 3e book about d&d in an Asian themed land called Rokugan.

Having said that, this product was absolutely not edited thoroughly enough, with silly mistakes like a feature appearing at a certain level one place, and another level two pages later. So if you're on the fence, get the PDF for the updates, but don't get a hardcopy until the next printing.

Hey Alon, you mentioned that it fixes a lot of issues you had with 5e? Could you elaborate on that?
I personally have issues with 5e, and that alone would keep me from purchasing this product unless those issues were addressed somehow.

They go into a number of ways to build some of the traditional classes in the backgrounds.

I think that the way this book handles Martial classes is the best I've seen out of a 5e product. More than just making everyone Battlemaster Fighters, each Bushi gets to make some pretty interesting choices with their variety of attacks.

As per the first on-the-fly reading this seems a really nice book :)

Is there a character sheet? I didn't find any

I pre-order my copy but it's not shipping yet. Any chance you could do a small review of the book? I've been super excited for this product.

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.
