Emerald Empire Sourcebook Available for Legend of the Five Rings RPG

Aug 15, 2018

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce Emerald Empire, a new 256-page hardcover sourcebook for Legend of the Five Rings Roleplaying!

The Emerald Empire is vast and as varied as the seven Great Clans that control its lands in the name of the Hantei Emperor. Its society is modeled after the Heavens themselves. It is a culture steeped in history and tradition, in a land where decorum and propriety carry the weight of life and death. It is a land where spirits shape the very earth and control the flow of rivers and streams.

Within the pages of this book, you’ll explore the places and people of Rokugan, from small villages of fisherfolk or mighty daimyo? in their castles to deep primordial forests and the spirits that dwell within. This book examines every aspect of life in the Emerald Empire, from food, to dress, to religion and spirituality, to matters of etiquette great and small. Emerald Empire is the first sourcebook for Legends of the Five Rings Roleplaying, and provides a look at the culture and landmarks of Rokugan as well as several new player options, including new advantages, disadvantages, and techniques.

Emerald Empire is split into seven distinct section. Six of these focus on aspects of society or geography found throughout Rokugan, while the seventh introduces new player options for characters. Rokugan is a vast land, and to detail every town and valley, every tradition and social role, is beyond the scope of any single volume. However, Emerald Empire will give a wealth of in-depth information on a great variety of these locations and traditions.

Fire in the Night Expansion for Lord of the Rings TCG Available to Pre Order

Aug 14, 2018

Fantasy Flight Games is happy to announce Fire in the Night, the third Adventure Pack in the Ered Mithrin cycle for The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game, coming Q4 2018!

This Adventure Pack finds you joining the Woodmen in a spirited defense of their home. Your quest had pointed to Mount Gundabad and a hunt for the Dragon Dagnir the Terrible, but now she has found you. You can only imagine the destruction she will cause if she escapes into the night. This must end now.

Unlike most other adventures you’ve experienced in The Lord of the Rings: The Card GameFire in the Night plays out across a single Quest Card. Dagnir (Fire in the Night, 74) is a ferocious beast, and her fury has only been stoked by the death of her children. Rather than attack individual characters, then, she unleashes her wrath on the entire settlement of Hrogar’s Hill. It’s up to you to defeat her before she leaves the Woodmen’s stronghold a smoldering ruin.

In King’s Landing, the Tyrells, Lannisters, and the newly restored Faith Militant divide the smallfolk as the city becomes a powder keg about to explode. And in Essos, Tyrion makes his way to meet Daenerys Targaryen, not knowing that she has flown from the fighting pits on the back of Drogon and the harpy’s city is now without a queen. Now is the time for those who dwell in the shadows to strike back against the light.
