June 5, 2018

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce Whispers of Shadow and Steel, a new novella set in the world of Rokugan by Mari Murdock, focusing on the Scorpion Clan!

Not only does the novella feature a thrilling full-length story, but also includes two extended art cards for Legend of the Five Rings: The Card Game!

In the clan infamous for its liars, schemers, and secrets, Bayushi Yojiro is known as the “only honest Scorpion.” As an Emerald Magistrate, his duty is to uphold the Emperor’s laws and ensure justice is done. As a Scorpion, his duty is to loyally serve the interests of his clan—even if that means sacrificing his own honor. As both, Yojiro walks a line as razor-thin as the edge of a katana.

When a dignitary of a rival clan is murdered in the Scorpion-controlled City of Lies, Yojiro is sent to help investigate and bring the killer to justice. His fellow magistrates expect him to prevent Scorpion interference, while his clan expects him to protect its secrets. Where do his loyalties truly lie, and whom will he be forced to betray?

Whispers of Shadows and Steel brings you into the world of the Honest Scorpion, Bayushi Yojiro. When a member of another clan is murdered in the infamous city of Ryoko Owari, Yojiro is torn between his duty as a Scorpion, and his duty as a Magistrate. He is placed in an impossible situation, forced to betray those he swore loyalty to.
