For five hundred years, his name has been whispered on fearful lips: Iuchiban. Bloodspeakers. Black magicians of a thousand unholy arts. Twice before he and his dark followers have tried to seize the Emerald Throne, only to be beaten back at great cost. Imprisoned within a secret location, guarded by the most fearsome traps devised, the madician has been driven slowly mad. Yet still he waits and plots a horrifying revenge against the Empire which sent him there.
Now an ancient circle of Bloodspeakers plots to unleash his evil again, and a small band of samurai is all that stands between them and their fiendish goal. From the back alleys of darkened cities to a barren countryside hiding unspeakable secrets, the players must pursue their foes through an ever-changing maze where nothing and no one are as they appear. And at the end of their journey lies Iuchiban's Tomb - a place which no one has ever entered and returned alive...
