Shinsei's Shrine

Reihado Shinsei

The Shrine of Shinsei was the most famous of all shrines in Rokugan. The exact location was uncertain and seemed to change from one era to another. [1]

Name Edit

Shinsei's Shrine 2

Shinsei's Shrine

The Crow Shrine (A13) was a shrine dedicated to the animal most associated with Shinsei, the Crow. When Shinsei and the Seven Thunders needed a scout when they entered the Shadowlands the crow, a bird with a white chest and beautiful colored wings volunteered. Even though the crow survived the journey it was forever blackened by the powerful forces that passed between the Thunders and Fu Leng. Since then crows had been regarded as birds of omen, ever watchful of troubles ahead. [2]

Finding the Shrine Edit
