Black and White

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


“The plots, schemes, and policies conceived within this court touched the towering Wall of the Crab, desperately fighting an implacable foe made of nightmares… the ravaged lands of the Crane, struggling just to feed their people… the remote mountains of the Dragon, who wrestled with insidious blasphemy even as their children became ever fewer. “
–D.G. Laderoute, “Black and White”

The throne room of the Imperial Palace sits silent. Only Bayushi Shoju, the Emperor’s appointed regent remains. Left with memories of the Emperor, Shoju pontificates on what the future holds for the Emerald Empire, and the role of the Scorpion Clan in the events to come.

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to present “Black and White” by D.G. Laderoute, a new short story set in the world of Legend of the Five Rings.
