Twisted Shadows

A Legend of the Five Rings 5th Edition game In the world of Emerald Chronicles
| Looking for Players
In the Kanjo District of Otosan Uchi, the Scorpion, the Phoenix, and the Lion maneuver endlessly to gain what little support the Imperial Families have left to give in this tumultuous time. But a mysterious affliction has begun to leave some in the district comatose that has baffled every shugenja to examine it. A prodigious ishiken believes she knows where to begin an investigation, but with the conflicts between clans growing in intensity by the week, you may find your time increasingly concerned with matters of court.   Emphasis on the Scorpion Clan as a whole, the Isawa of the Phoenix, and the Imperial Families. Themes of family, corruption, and sacrifice. A mix of intrigue and skirmishes.
