“Be like unto the wind, and nothing can resist you.” – The teachings of Isawa Mitsuko

The winds are a powerful force in Rokugan, both literally and figuratively. They power the vessels of the Mantis across the known world, bring the storms that bless or ruin harvests, and empower no less than five different Fortunes. Like all forces of nature, the people of Rokugan respect and fear the wind, for it is beyond control, and beyond understanding.

The Book of Air is the first in a series of elemental sourcebooks that will explore the themes of each of the five elemental Rings. From the whispers issued behind fans in the Imperial Court, to the arrows loosed upon enemies on the battlefield, every aspect of the mercurial and impermanent essence of Air will be examined.

In this book you will find explorations of:

  • Iaijutsu and its traditions throughout the clans
  • Archery and how the various armies utilize it
  • Spells concerning revelation and deception
  • Kiho utilized by the Brotherhood
  • The court setting of the remote Kyuden Kurogane-Hana
  • And much more!

The Book of Air is the first in a line of much-awaited supplements to the already spectacular L5R 4th Edition line. I’m intrigued by the direction that they’re taking the game line, and the elemental series is a good way to keep things in the “Toolbox” style that made the 4th edition so great for me. If you’re interested in picking this up, it’s available from the Alderac Online Store for $39.99 (plus shipping)
