The Lion ambassador narrowed his eyes. I will not let him forget. We will see how far I can push him, and how willing he is to act.
   –Annie VanderMeer, “The Careful Gardener”

Following Kakita Yoshi’s clever political maneuvering, the Crane Clan has seized the regency of Rokugan. Of course, the Lion Clan are displeased with these latest developments, and none more so than Ikoma Ujiaki. How far will he go to regain control, and what tenuous alliances will he forge along the way?

The climactic story of the Temptations cycle continues with "The Careful Gardener" (3 MB), a new Legend of the Five Rings short story by Annie VanderMeer.
