    Default L5R 4TH Edition

    I thought they could not use "legend of the 5 rings" because of some hassle with copy right laws. But seems there is a 4th edition I just heard about it through drivethruRPG weekly newsletter

    Blood. Honor. Steel.

    Welcome to the 4th Edition of the epic Role-Playing Game Legend of the Five Rings! Join us for the ultimate adventure of fantasy samurai, locked in perpetual battles of honor and glory within the bonds of the Code of Bushido.

    The Emerald Empire of Rokugan demands much of its samurai: service to one's lord, service to one's Clan, and service to one's Emperor.

    Bushido's staunch and unyielding code of conduct binds samurai to duty, strengthening their character and defining their choices. While some samurai serve the greater good, others use the strictures of Bushido to manipulate the lower ranks and advance their own power. Will you follow honor or reject it? The choice is yours!

    Eight Great Clans form the heart of Rokugan's culture. Each is defined by its own principles, values, and agendas. Each sees the Code of Bushido in its own way. Each seeks to serve the Emperor with its own unique talents. Take up the soul of your ancestors - the samurai's daisho - and fight for the glory and honor of your family and Clan. Now is the time for heroes, in a world where Honor is a force more powerful than Steel.

    The Fourth Edition of L5R is the ultimate edition of the award-winning role-playing game. Inside this tome you will find:

    A game unlike any you've played elsewhere. Honor and service are valued more than magic swords taken from wandering ogres. Prepare for the glorious life of the samurai!
    A unique, comprehensive character sheet. Legend of the Five Rings rules have never been more easy to learn and to play. No more need to flip through pages of rules while fighting your enemies!
    A toolbox approach to role-playing in Rokugan. Fourth Edition encourages gamemasters of Legend of the Five Rings to customize their game, adding or removing from their campaigns as they see fit.
    A broad history of the Emerald Empire and the beliefs of all the Great Clans, with play options not only the major clans but also for outlying groups such as Imperials, Minor Clans, and the infamous Spider Clan.
    DRAW YOUR BLADE AND JOIN THE FIGHT FOR ROKUGAN.
    And the blood will drain down like devils rain, and we will bathe tonight

    I have not played the newest edition, but played first and i think 2nd ed....probably one of the most lethal games I ever played...Lots of roleplay but when it was time for combat, someone was going to die....

    I kinda like systems like that. It's kinda tricky for a guy who started out in D&D to get used to, but really, you probably shouldn't think of combat as the solution to to every problem. A system like that encourages players to think of alternatives, and avoid combat when possible.

    very true, It also cut down on the "Hulk Smash" type of characters. Because it is a very social game you needed to watch your maners and act approatily.
