After a long, long time, Legend of the Five Ring’s latest edition of its Roleplaying Game is now available on PDF. Having bought the book in dead tree format only to arrive in less than pristine condition thanks to the usual risks of shipping and handling, I find myself more inclined to move towards buying more PDFs in the future.
That said the book is an absolute beauty to behold, and the rules here are much more streamlined, and are of the medium-crunch variety. The artwork and layout are stunning, and is definitely shows off the fact that AEG really does care about their product to do a good job.
That said, it’s also a great opportunity for the Philippine L5R community to show their support by voting with their wallets. If you enjoy the L5R RPG, go buy it over at DriveThruRPG. They’re a good site, and I’ve never run into any problems with my downloads from there.
I’m encouraged by this move by AEG, and I’m hoping that they continue with the trend by bringing out the upcoming Enemies of the Empire and The Great Clans in PDF format as well.
