Fantasy Flight Previews Shinobi Characters From Courts of Stone

The world of Rokugan is filled with specialists. Those that have trained hard to hone their bodies into instruments to impose their Clan's will. In this preview of the upcoming Courts of Stone book for the Legend of the Five Rings RPG, we get a look at the Shinobi and see what makes these deadly warriors so dangerous.

From the post:

Rokugan is in an age of sudden change. The throne is under threat from malevolent forces both on the battlefield and in the courts, and those closest to the Emperor now have the rare opportunity to make sweeping changes to the course of the Emerald Empire’s future. If you can navigate the web of deadly intrigues that surround the Emperor, you can bring the desires of your Clan to the forefront and secure your power in the years to come.

In the Legend of the Five Rings Roleplaying Game, you take on the role of a citizen of the Emerald Empire working to leave your mark on history and help bring Rokugan into a new age, but how you pursue this end is entirely up to you. The world is wide, and the choices you make may lead you down infinite paths. In the Courts of Stonesourcebook, you find the comprehensive guide to Rokugan’s courts, castles, and keeps, where power is concentrated between a handful of players and where you have the best chance to bring your Clan’s goals to fruition. But will you build your new world with words, or will you turn to more dishonorable means to achieve your ends?

Today, we offer you a closer look at the new deadly schools introduced in the Courts of Stone sourcebook for the Legend of the Five Rings Roleplaying Game— now available for pre-order at your local retailer or online through our website with free shipping within the continental United States!
