Like Seeds on the Wind

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


“If samurai spent less time thinking about honor, they might be better at doing what’s right.”
   –Satto, "Like Seeds on the Wind"

The code of Bushidō is essential to the life of a samurai in the Emerald Empire. Every samurai acts in line with the core tenets of the Bushidō philosophy, and many would neverdream of straying from the path. However, there is a new philosophy growing among the peasants—one that sees a different path to enlightenment. The Perfect Land Sect is less concerned with honor, and more concerned with doing what’s right.  But their belief comes at a cost. The Phoenix have already outlawed the sect in their lands, and the Dragon aren’t far behind. But who are the Rokugani behind the Perfect Land Sect, and what do they hope to achieve?
