Description

by Brian Bates (Author), Shawn Carman (Author) . This is the book of monsters for AEGs Legend of the 5 Rings RPG. Note, that while previous L5R books were done in a dual format of D20 and AEG rules, this book is all AEG rules.

by Brian Bates (Author), Shawn Carman (Author), Sean Holland (Author). If you have the D20 Creatures of Rokugan book, you should be able to establish a conversion base with the monsters that are in both books. While this book does have a lot of creatures in it, the book fails to follow the most fundamental rule of a monster book, "Good Art and Lots of It". The majority of the monsters of this book are not illustrated and those that are, well the art is not that good.

Rokugan has never belonged to humans alone

Rokugan has never belonged to humans alone. Ages before the dawn of the Empire, great civilizations built by non-human races, such as the naga and ogres, marked the land. Though their civilizations are gone now, their descendants still dwell upon the earth and in the seas.

Writing: Brian Bates, Shawn Carman, Sean Holland, Douglas Sun, Brian Yoon. Art Director: Ken Carpenter. Graphic Designers: Nate Barnes, Rodney Saenz. Cover Artist: Hugh Jamieson.

I found the world of Rokugan through a copy of Matsu Toshiro in 1998. I fell in love with the art and threw myself enthusiastically into the card game. My friends and I found Clan War, and I spent countless hours dying horribly to Isha and his archers

Rokugan has never belonged to humans alone. Ages before the dawn of the Empire, great civilizations built by non-human races, such as the naga and ogres, marked the land. Though their civilizations are gone now, their descendants still dwell upon the earth and in the seas. Since the catastrophic Fall of Fu Leng, oni - spawn of Jigoku - and their terrible offspring have walked the Shadowlands and warred against the Empire without cease. A dazzling variety of creatures great and small have always been a part of this world - some fearsome, some benign, some visitors from Spirit Realms. No understanding of Rokugan would be complete without them. Creatures of Rokugan: Third Edition is a comprehensive catalogue of the remarkable creatures and monsters that populate Rokugan and the Shadowlands, presented to conform to Legend of the Five Rings Roleplaying Game Third Edition rules. You will meet all manner of creatures, spirits, oni and ghosts here, from the sorcerous ashalan to the bizarre zokujin: Over 200 entries, including some creatures never before described for any edition of Legend of the Five Rings Roleplaying Game. Rules for creating naga and nezumi player characters. Detailed discussions of naga and nezumi history, society and culture, including their relationships with the Great Clans. Rules for creating shapeshifter player characters. Standardized sets of traits and abilities for various classes of creatures, to make them easier to use and remember. This book is a must-have resource for every Legend of the Five Rings Roleplaying Game campaign. Creatures of Rokugan: Third Edition is a rules supplement, and its use requires the Legend of the Five Rings Roleplaying Game ThirdEdition core rulebook.

The LoFR's universe just got a little bit bigger. The nice thing is that it maintains the integrity of the RPG while adding new races and creatures.

A very useful book, I like all the info included, lots of flavor, lots of inspiration. This book continues to make the third edition my favorite edition.

This volume is an exceptional addition to the L5R game, and well worth the purchase. It includes many creatures only seen in the CCG, and that alone makes it valuable.

As far as supplements go, Creatures of Rokugan is pretty useful. The first few chapters deal with rules for playing spirits of various realms (including animal spirits), naga, and nezumi. Animal spirits are fairly well-done and appealing; they aren't extremely powerful, but have a number of very useful abilities that make them excellent additions for any group. Naga and nezumi have been updated and seem somewhat expanded compared to their earlier incarnations in the game; nezumi especially are very detailed and have a lot of style behind them.

After this come the various creatures, and there is no lack here. Instead of a "Shadowlands On Parade", we get a bit more diversity. Keep in mind, of course, that oni, gaki, and other hostile beings are more plentiful, but a clever GM will find plenty of extra creatures that should help them come up with some good ideas.

Is the book perfect? Sadly, no. I regret to inform you all that AEG seems to stubbornly refuse to proofread their work, or even run their text through a spell-checker. There's a lot of somewhat poor flavor text, and misspellings are so common that they'd give a teacher fits. Normally, I'm not really concerned with such things if the rules are sound, but several of the people who work with AEG have been in the business too long to be making these kinds of mistakes, and one would have hoped they'd have at least bought a copy of MS Office or something that can help them avoid the more obvious mistakes with nothing more than a few mouse clicks.

If you can overlook the poor writing quality and consider that you are buying this book to flesh out the land of Rokugan with more than just humans, you are definitely getting your money's worth. Just don't bring a lot of expectations to the store (or website) you buy it from.

I am an avid table-top role-player, mainly using the standard d20 rules with the occasional vintage version of TSR's Marvel Super Heroes. But this system is great!! Combat is vicious, but not the overriding element in the game. It is a more social game, forced role-playing instead of roll-playing.

Overall, I recommend it to anyone looking for something new to try!

This is the book of monsters for AEGs Legend of the 5 Rings RPG. Note, that while previous L5R books were done in a dual format of D20 and AEG rules, this book is all AEG rules. If you have the D20 Creatures of Rokugan book, you should be able to establish a conversion base with the monsters that are in both books.

While this book does have a lot of creatures in it, the book fails to follow the most fundamental rule of a monster book, "Good Art and Lots of It". The majority of the monsters of this book are not illustrated and those that are, well the art is not that good. When you are dealing with exotic creatures like Oni, the demons of Japanese mythology, you really need pictures to visualize them. Considering all the art available from the L5R card game, the lack of monster pictures here is strange.

The book does have very good sections on the Naga, serpent people, and the Nezumi, rat people. These sections provide everything you need to play these races and takes up about a third of the book. The rest is an alphabetical list of the creatures, monsters and spirits of Rokugan and while they are described in detail, most are lacking illustrations.

A good book for its roll playing game. Full of information.
