Description Edit | History

From publisher blurb:

Set in the Heian Period of Japanese history, when the Shinto faith was starting to give way to Buddhism, when the Samurai were making their climb to power, in a land of legends; Samurai of Legend is a complete setting, designed for those of you who enjoy a huge pile of reality mixed in with your fantasy.

Included are new professions and backgrounds along with advice on creating exciting characters, with which to explore this fascinating period. Also an in-depth look at the Shinto and Buddhist faiths, along with the variety of other factors that influenced life in Japan at this time. Predominantly, this book covers the rise of the Samurai and other martial classes and even gives the option of introducing Ninjas… not technically of this period but a whole lot of fun to utilise none the less!

Encounter the monsters and myths that have been the stuff of legend for over a millennium. Experience the Imperial life or that of a Samurai. Understand the importance of defending the honour of you and yours – no matter what it costs.

    From the back of the book:

    "Ancient Japan has held a long fascination for the west. The formality of the society, steeped in notions of honour and debt almost unheard of in the west; the traditions of the samurai and their code of bushido; the enigmatic ninja and duality of the Shinto and Buddhist religious philosophies - each contributes to a unique society that is ideal for adventure on many different levels.

    This book assumes the reader is new to historical Japan, although those with knowledge of it through popular mediums and historical research should not find it wanting. Within these pages you will find everything needed to create an authentic sense of mythic Japan using the Legend rules system."
