Caged Birds

New Legend of the Five Rings Fiction Is Now Available


Now, Kachiko was nothing. Nobody. She’d dropped the strings. Now, there were none left to pull.
–Katrina Ostrander, “Caged Birds”

Bayushi Kachiko, Imperial Advisor and Mother of Scorpions, has fallen far from her high position. After disputing with Shoju in the aftermath of the Emperor’s death, she has been exiled to Toshi Ranbo, far from the Imperial City of Otosan Uchi, and held under house arrest for treason. Now stripped of everything she once held close, what is Kachiko’s road forward from this point—and where might that road lead?

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to present "Caged Birds" (2.4 MB), a new Legend of the Five Rings short story by Katrina Ostrander! This story follows directly from the events arising in "Black and White"  (317 KB).
