Falling Stars

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


“Plummeting, the blazing lights shuddered in their final descent, raining down like thousands of dying fireflies, their light snuffed out as they collapsed into the darkness.”
    –Mari Murdock, Falling Stars

A conspiracy has been given form in Otosan Uchi. With Bayushi Kachiko’s decision to instill Hantei Sotorii as the next Emperor, the fate of the Emerald Empire has shifted forever. But what does this mean for the Lion Clan’s Akodo Toturi? As the Emerald Champion, Toturi is one of the few people in Rokugan who knows the truth of the Emperor’s final days, and his final wish. What does this new Rokugan have in store for the Emerald Champion and his wife, Akodo Kaede?

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to present “Falling Stars,” a new short-story set in the world of Legend of the Five Rings!

Visions of Destruction

“Falling Stars” focuses on Akodo Kaede and her husband, Akodo Toturi and can be downloaded here (0.7 mb). This story takes place immediately after “The Last Stone Played” and directly follows up on the plot points from that story. Be sure to keep an eye on the Fantasy Flight Games website over the next couple of weeks for even more Legend of the Five Rings fiction!  

Akodo Kaede is willing to put herself on the line to help those she loves, and she brings this same ability to Legend of the Five Rings: The Card Game. Whenever another character you control would leave play, you can instead remove a fate from Akodo Kaede (Bonds of Blood, 28). By investing heavily into Akodo Kaede when she enters the field, you can protect your Lion Clan samurai, ensuring they stay on the field to participate in future conflicts.

A Fateful Night

Hour by hour, the face of the Emerald Empire changes. What developments await the Great Clans as one of the most historic nights in Rokugan’s history continues to unfold? Who will be left standing when all is said and done?

Keep an eye on the Fantasy Flight Games website for more Legend of the Five Rings official fiction, heading your way soon!
