Fantasy Flight Announces New Sourcebook and Adventure for the Legend of the Five Rings RPG

The lives of those in Rokugan are heavily affected by the spirits. Both angels and demons will often interfere in the plans of man, and sometimes vice-versa. The Celestial Realms book for the Legend of the Five Rings RPG brings insight into thes other realms of existence. Meanwhile, the Wheel of Judgement in the sky keeps turnin'... I mean, it's a new adventure that involves players in the games and plans that celestials and devils will make.

From the post:

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.

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce Celestial Realms, a new sourcebook, and Wheel of Judgment, a new adventure for Legend of the Five Rings Roleplaying!

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.
