The Book of Air

"The essence of Air is the essence of speed and awareness. It is oneness with the word, both physical and spiritual."- The Tao of Shinsei

Air is the most mercurial of elements, from the cool breeze that comforts a dying soldier to the cutting wind that slices away at the rock, carving canyons and spires from the mighty mountains. The essence of Air is within all things, giving life to the honeyed words of the courtier, lending speed to the brilliant steel of the duelist, carrying the arrow of the archer, and delivering the hurricane force of a devout priest. Some believe that Air is the least powerful of the elements. Those who believe so are fools.

The Book of Air is the first in a new series of sourcebooks for the Legend of the Five Rings Roleplaying Game, the Elemental Series, each of which focuses on one of the five iconic rings that give the game its name. The Book of Air explores the many different aspects of Air in the setting, including the many activities and endeavours samurai attempt that are tied to the Air ring. Among the various topics in this book you will discover:

  • More information on the iaijutsu dueling system of Rokugan, one of the most iconic elements of the samurai story in Legend of the Five Rings.
  • An in-depth examination of archery, it's history and opinion of those in the Empire, including new Paths.
  • The power of Air magic via the Air kami, including illusion, illumination, and communication.
  • The potency of Air-related Kiho for the monks of the Brotherhood of Shinsei.
  • An entire campaign setting closely tied to the themes of Air.

Damage Control

The Sharks are Circling

When the great dragon Hestaby levelled Saeder-Krupp's arcology in Dubai, a lot of people wondered if the success of her act meant that Lofwyr & Co. were off their game. And of course, the corps of the Sixth World aren't ones to just sit around and speculate - instead, they act. All of the sudden, corporations of all sizes are on the move, snatching up any Saeder-Krupp clients they can pry away, telling them that S-K can't be trusted in the current turmoil.

Saeder-Krupp, though, is not about to let anyone believe they are weak. They're going to show that they should never be trifled with, and that clients would be well served to stay with them - or risk the wrath of Lofwyr. They're going to show that they should never be trifled with, and that clients would be well served to stay with them - or risk the wrath of Lofwyr. They're bringing runners to Dubai to demonstrate that the largest megacorporation in the world still has strength to spare.

Damage Control is the first in the new Boardroom Backstabs series of adventures for Shadowrun. The series explores one of the classic Shadowrun themes - corporate machinations where every handshake is made with crossed fingers, and the hand you can't see is always holding a knife. There's a lot of money to be made on this job, but runners better keep their wits about them if they want to keep all those corporate sharks from feeding on them.

Damage Control is for use with Shadowrun, Twentieth Anniversary Editon.

Classic Monsters

Monsters Abound
Monsters abound. They litter the halls of our collective games like so much debris; wandering monsters, laired beasts, plane walkers, horrid thoughts that linger upon the edge of our imagination. Monsters abound, but as any gamer of any stripe knows, you can never have too many creatures for they are the grist of the mill that is our game...

Classic Monsters
The early days of gaming saw some of the most classic and amazing creatures. Weird beasties derived from the minds of people influenced by a genre of fiction that was in its prime, when fantasy truly meant the fantastic. Castles and Crusades has touched upon them from time to time, but by and large they have remained in the background. Until Now. Classic Monsters revisits them all from the tarrasque to the peryton, from the mighty-small dune stalker to the nightshade, this book brings it all back to the table.

It's your universe. What are you going to make of it?
