The newly announced sourcebook for the Legend of the Five Rings Roleplaying Game promises to take players through the vastness of the Emerald Empire. Protected by a great wall that keeps demons at bay, home to warring clans and wandering bushi, what will you find in the Emerald Empire?
If you’ve been following our news, you’ll know that as part of their Gen Con announcements, FFG will soon be putting out a new supplement for their L5RPG: Enter the Emerald Empire. This is a setting guide, so it’ll take you deep within the bounds of the Emerald Empire, showing you strongholds and villages.
Different provinces where your characters can find adventure and danger of all sorts. But not only will you find different settings, you’ll find a lot of cultural information. Culture is important in Rokugan–art and skill are as much a means of gaining honor as fighting battles, and so you’ll find information on religion and rumors, and more within.

Learn of the intricacies of Rokugan with the Emerald Empire Source Book for the Legend of the Five Rings Roleplaying Game!
The Emerald Empire is vast and as varied as the seven Great Clans that control its lands in the name of the Hantei Emperor. Its society is modelled after the Heavens themselves. It is a culture steeped in history and tradition, in a land where decorum and propriety carry the weight of life and death. It is a land where spirits shape the very earth and control the flow of rivers and streams.
Emerald Empire explores the places and people of Rokugan, from small villages of fisherfolk to mighty daimyō in their castles, to deep primordial forests and the spirits that dwell within. This book examines every aspect of life in the Emerald Empire, from food, to dress, to religion and spirituality, and matters of etiquette great and small.
