Description Edit | History

Subtitle: A campaign setting for Legend of the Five Rings, first edition.

A boxed set covering the city of Ryoko Owari in the Scorpion Clan lands. Supplemented by the module, L-2 Night of a Thousand Screams. The set is structured to be suited for a classic Emerald Magistrates campaign set up for L5R, but can be used for other campaign styles.

Fron the Box Back Cover
Amid the rolling hills and gentle plains of Rokugan rests a city whose walls are as green as jade. Located in the heart of the lands held by the secretive Scorpion, the city is Ryoko Owari Toshi, Journey's End City, the darkest lair of intrigue and villainy in the Emerald Empire. Behind the city's gleaming gates lie dark secrets, hidden treasures and poisoned knives. Geisha, sake works and even more sinister vices await the unwary traveler who dares seek his fate in the cold black heart of the city. Brave her streets if you dare, but beware, for danger hides behind painted faces...

"Rokugan's most elegant cesspit; a monster of beauty, a seductive lie cast in limestone and gold, a treacherous maiden whose loveliness is exceeded only by her brutality- that is my home."- Shosuro Sokichi, Thirteenth Governor of Ryoko Owari

  • Geography of the City: Explore the history of Ryoko owari, and learn the secrets hidden behind its foreboding walls.
  • The Charter of the Emerald Magistrates: Information and regulations on the powers and jurisdiction of the Magistrates of Rokugan.
  • Masks and Dark Secrets: Delve into the lands of Rokugan's most sinsiter families, uncover the mysteries behind the Scorpion Clan, and reveal their true face...if you dare.
  • Epic Adventure for Ongoing Campaigns: Information for establishing and continuing long-term campaigns, as well as brief encounters.
  • Hundreds of Locations: Filled with tons of detailed locations and a fascinating cast of characters, the City of Lies comes alive in this set, ready to challenge your players with intrigue as well as combat.
