Boxed city setting and campaign supplement for Legend of the Five Rings, second edition. Provides material to play out the events of the Scorpion Clan Coup in game. Also includes material to play out certain battles using the Clan War miniatures supplement. As with a number of AEG boxed sets of this period, in some printings the box size does not fit the books within, meaning the books and maps come pre-bent.

- Book Three: The Scorpion's Sting: A game Master's Guide to the Scorpion Clan Coup (80 pages)

"Beneath the gaze of a watchful Emperor, Otosan Uchi is a vision of all that is wondrous about the Empire. But if the Emperor is old, or neglects his duty, her golden veneer begins to peel and crumble, and a much darker face laughs from beneath painted masks..."
-Seppun Dairoi, Daimyo of the Seppun
In the center of the Emerald Empire, there is a city as old as the kami themselves, filled with the culture of the Celestial Heavens. It is a city of wonder, of beauty and of bright gold and glittering jewels, where the webs of deception and intrigue span a thousand years. Otosan Uchi is the home of the Hantei line, the mighty Emperors of the Emerald Empire, shining and touched by the blessings of the Sun Mother, Ameratsu, herself.
But within its brightly lit gates and shining lanterns, a dark heart beats beneath the bustling roads of the Emperor's city. The Seven Clans fight for control of powerful districts, poisoned knives strike from shadowed doorways, and four enchanted walls rise above a labyrinth of hidden corridors.
Otosan Uchi has stood, impenetrable, for a thousand years.
That is about to change forever...
