Better to Be Certain

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


"This was the game the Shadowlands played."
–Robert Denton III, "Better to be Certain"

Many horrors await those who venture south of the Kaiu Wall into the dreaded Shadowlands. Only those properly prepared stand any chance of surviving. Crab Clan warriors are trained to survive these harsh conditions since birth. They know to always be prepared for the horrors that await them, to always expect an attack, and that it is always better to be certain than dead.

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to present “Better to be Certain” by Robert Denton III, a new fiction set in the world of Legend of the Five Rings: The Card Game.

Legend of the Five Rings has a long history of releasing fiction on Halloween, and that is a tradition we are proud to continue here at Fantasy Flight Games. “Better to Be Certain” follows Crab Samurai Hiruma Shizuyo as she sets up camp south of the Kaiu Wall, and can be downloaded here (2.3 MB).
