It is an era of sudden change and upheaval in Rokugan. Mortal schemes, natural calamities, and celestial turmoil alike have disrupted the political, military, and spiritual equilibrium of the land. Long-simmering rivalries and fresh betrayals ripple through the courts and on the battlefield. The Chrysanthemum Throne is beset by threats from without and within, and the honor of the seven Great Clans—the families descended from the heroes of legend and sworn to rule their lands in the Emperor’s name—shall be put to the test.

Discover the unique strengths of the Crab, Crane, Dragon, Lion, Phoenix, Scorpion and Unicorn clans and the challenges they face in this first anthology of the fiction from the Legend of the Five Rings: The Card Game!

These fictions introduce readers to the Great Clans of Rokugan and their Champions. Each Great Clan has their own political makeup and problems, and these stories immerse you in these issues while introducing you to the major players, making The First Scroll the ideal starting place for Legend of the Five Rings fiction.

The anthology also includes Smokeless Fire and A Most Suitable Teacher, a story choice determined by the Hatamotos crowned at Gen Con 2017. Furthermore, you can get a taste of the Imperial Cycle with In the Garden of Lies and To The South, two stories that help to illustrate the motivations of the clans battling for the Emerald Empire.

This free e-book provides a convenient and fast way to engross yourself in the world of Legend of the Five Rings. Not only does the anthology provide twelve introductory fictions, but also includes a full map of Rokugan, grounding you in the events that are transpiring.
