Children of Tradition

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


"Insanity. Because of the foolishness that is honor and Bushidō, we have embraced insanity."
   –Hantei Daisetsu, "Children of the Empire Part I" 

As the conflict between the two princes of Rokugan comes to a boiling point, a challenge to a duel has been issued. With the situation beginning to spiral out of control, what fate awaits the crown princes? And how did these events from six months ago lead to Emperor Hantei XXXVIII’s monumental edict?
