Book of Earth (RPG)

Book of Earth Cover

The Book of Earth is the second in a 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. From the quiet, stolid fortresses that stand quietly against the force of the Empire's enemies, to the crushing violence of a tetsubo, every aspect of the eternal essence of Earth will be examined.
