Kurosunai Village

Read a New Piece of Fiction Set in the World of Legend of the Five Rings


"The giants were fighting, and all he could do was pray that they watched for the ants beneath their feet."
   –Chris Longhurst, Kurosunai Village 

While Legend of the Five Rings often focuses on the samurai of the Great Clans, they are not the only denizens of Rokugan. In villages far from conflict, peasants strive for a life they can call serviceable. These villagers may not have the same skill with a katana or experience in courts that samurai wield, but they still find their own peace in life, and are happy when the conflicts of the Great Clans stay far away from them, lest they become trampled under the foot of intrigue and battle.

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to present "Kurosunai Village" by Chris Longhurst, a new piece of fiction set in the world of Legend of the Five Rings!
