Spirit Wars was an expansion of Legend of the Five Rings Card Collectible Game which was renamed as The War of Spirits due to copyright challenge. It depicted the War of Spirits, which began when an army of Returned Spirits fought the Great Clans in the name of the mad Emperor Hantei XVI, nicknamed the Steel Chrysanthemum, who had laid claim the throne of Rokugan. The set featured starters for the Lion, Phoenix, and Spirits. Some cards in this Jade Legal set jade legal also featured the Gold bug gold legal, and it was the first set to feature new card backs, when following a legal issue with the International Olympic Committee the design was changed to five non-interlocking circular symbols depicting each of the five elements of the game (Fire, Air, Earth, Water and Void).
