Fantasy Flight Previews The Edge of Rokugan in Path of Waves

Rokugan is not the only land in the Legend of the Five Rings world. Sure, it's the focus, but it's not everything. There are plenty of lands all around the edge. In Path of Waves, Fantasy Flight is exploring the edge of the land, and we get a little preview of that all here.

From the website:

The Emerald Empire is vast, stretching from the shimmering Jade Sea to the towering Kaiu Wall that guards against the terrors of the Shadowlands. In the Legend of the Five Rings Roleplaying Game, you have the chance to journey across this land as noble samurai, experiencing its wonders and facing its dangers with an upright zeal. But with Path of Waves, the world becomes richer than ever before, giving you the chance to see its least-traveled corners through the eyes of those who do not fit into the Celestial Order.

As your journey continues, you will see many small villages scattered across the empire and, while they may seem the same at first, you will come to learn that no two villages are alike. From small fishing villages along the coasts, to mining villages in the mountains and farming villages on the fertile plains, these communities function in near obscurity as small, largely self-governing societies paying rice tax to a lord who presides over them from a distance. Now, they are open for you to explore as your adventures in Rokugan continue.

Today, we are pleased to offer you a closer look at the fully-realized locations you can explore in the Path of Waves sourcebook for the Legend of the Five Rings Roleplaying Game—now available for pre-order at your local retailer or online through our website!
