The Coiled Snake

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


Through the past several weeks, we’ve gotten a look at the thought process of Emperor Hantei XXXVIII and his son, Hantei Daisetsu, as an explosive situation played out between the crown princes. But every conflict cannot be viewed from just one angle, and the Emperor’s eldest son has his own perspective on events.

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to present “Children of the Empire Part III” by D.G. Laderoute, a new short story set in the world of Legend of the Five Rings!

This story completes the “Children of the Empire” short story trilogy and can be downloaded here (6.2 MB). For the full context of this tale, be sure to read the first two parts of the story, “Children of the Empire Part I” and “Children of the Empire Part II”.
