A Game of Promises

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


“In a deal, you are sente. You are the first player, have the first move, and control the board.”
–Yasuki Taka, "A Game of Promises"

As shrewd negotiators, the Yasuki family procure the resources the Crab need to defend the wall from the dreaded Shadowland forces. Though their clan is often seen as single-minded in their purpose, the Yasuki are flexible in their tactics. Outwitting their foes and securing the best deal they can for the Clan is just as vital as fighting on the front lines. Few of these negotiators are as skilled as Yasuki Oguri, and on the eve of a vital proposal, he thinks back to lessons learned as a child.
