Most of the Legend of the Five Rings characters come from Rokugan, the land in which the game takes place. That makes sense. But Rokugan is not the only land in the world. Other places exist, and there are many who will travel to Rokugan for many different reasons. In this preview for Path of Waves, the new sourcebook coming for the RPG, we get a look at some of these Gaijin characters.
From the post:
In the Legend of the Five Rings Roleplaying Game, players step into the tumultuous world of Rokugan, where political upheaval and Celestial turmoil have led to unrest and conflict. Forces both on the battlefield and in the court threaten the throne, and players must step carefully to navigate this ever-changing empire on the edge of a new age. But while the Emerald Empire is vast, there are lands beyond its borders that are just as rich in history and culture, which you will have a chance to explore with Path of Waves, the 256-page sourcebook which explores the lives of those who exist outside of the Celestial Order, such as rōnin and gaijin.
Today, we are pleased to offer you a closer look at the lands that lay beyond the Emerald Empire as they appear in the Path of Waves sourcebook for the Legend of the Fives Roleplaying Game—now available for pre-order at your local retailer or online through our website with free shipping within the continental United States!
