The Price of War

Read a New Short Story Set in the World of Legend of the Five Rings



Across the Emerald Empire, no clan represents the values of duty, courage, and honor like the mighty Lion.

The Lion’s military prowess is unrivaled, as there are no sharper tacticians and no larger armies in all of Rokugan. This proud military heritage has earned the Lion Clan a place as the Right Hand of the Emperor, sworn to protect him by serving as his personal guard and his standing army. In light of this duty, fear means nothing to Lion samurai. The threat of death only serves to embolden them and bolster their courage, for there can be no greater end than to perish in honorable combat. As veterans of countless wars, the Lion Clan knows that those who attack first shall be victorious.
