Fantasy Flight Games has a new Sourcebook and Adventure coming to the L5R RPG.

From the unfortunate layoffs and ending of games, it’s a little surprising to hear that Fantasy Flight Games has announced a brand new pair of releases for the Legend of the Five Rings Roleplaying Game. The RPG division was being closed down, but it appears that FFG is committed to releasing the products that were completed/far enough in the development cycle to produce a final version. We don’t know how many of these products are going to make the cut off. The only thing we know for sure is that these products have been announced and are coming to stores.

So if you were looking for more for your L5R RPGs, you better get them while they last.

Celestial Realms boasts three chapters packed with information on the spiritual side of life in the Emerald Empire, covering the cosmology of the Spirit Realms and the Phoenix Clan’s roles as the caretakers of Rokugan’s soul. With new player options and adventure seeds sprinkled throughout, from the introduction of the Centipede Clan to the ancestral swords belonging to each of the Great Clans, this 144-page full-color sourcebook is an indispensable resource for Game Masters and players alike.

Then, armed with the knowledge of the Spirit Realms, you’ll be ready to embark on the Wheel of Judgment adventure—an adventure designed specifically for deceased PCs. From Meido, the Realm of Waiting, you and your fellow samurai face a journey unlike any other, leading you across the realms to hunt down the corrupting influence of Jigoku… and perhaps, if you’re lucky, to return alive to Ningen-dō.

Celestial Realms and Wheel of Judgement are two books that go hand-in-hand. They deal with things not of this mortal coil in the Land of Rokugan. You’ll learn about the realms beyond like Yomi – the Realm of Blessed Ancestors and Gaki-dō, the Realm of the Hungry Dead! These places can be both wonderful and frightening.

It’s a great sourcebook for players and GMs alike. If you’re looking to take your next character or campaign to the Celestial Realms then this book is perfect for you.

Now, if you’re a tad intimidated to go all in and create your own adventure, you can always pick-up the Wheel of Judgement and use it as a launching point. Inside you’ll find a 32-page booklet that is a complete adventure. It includes a double-sided map, 50 punchboard tokens and all the info you need to run the game’s story. Your players will be playing deceased characters already – so if you were looking to pull a TPK (total party kill) then you’re already done!

Celestial Realms $39.95

The realm of Rokugan is vast, stretching from the tainted Shadowlands in the south to the towering northern mountains—yet all of Rokugan is only a small part of Ningen-dō, the Realm of Mortals. And Ningen-dō lies between the Spirit Realms, below the Celestial Court of Tengoku, beside the enchanted land of Senkyō, and above the torturous realms of the dead. In most circumstances, mortal samurai stay in Ningen-dō, but the influence of these other realms cannot be underestimated.
