Prayers and Treasures is an essential resource, and not just for those who play shugenja characters or who are interested in the profession. Anyone who is interested in enchanted items and legendary artifacts will find this a must-have book.
Rokugan is a place of enchantment, as well as honor and courage. The Elemental spirits known as the kami inhabit every place and every thing, and those who are blessed with the gift of communicating directly with them can tap into their power and unleash forces that others can scarcely imagine. The kami that reside in physical objects have also been known to awaken on their own, or in response to human stimulation, thereby creating items with supernatural powers that are both revered and respected in all corners of the Empire.
Prayers and Treasures is a comprehensive guide to magic in Legend of the Five Rings Roleplaying Game Third Edition, encompassing not only the shugenja’s art, but also the vast range of magic items that can be found in Rokugan.
Here you will find:
- Extensive catalogue of nemuranai, described for incorporation into the RPG. Many of these items have appeared in Legend of the Five Rings Collectible Card Game, but never in the RPG until now.
- Over 100 new spells. Many of these are updated from previous editions of Legend of the Five Rings RPG. Includes maho spells, multi-Element spells, and spells that are specialties of certain Clans or families.
- Discussion of the role that shugenja play in each major faction, as well as Minor Clans and among ronin. Includes new Shugenja Paths.
- More detailed rules for nemuranai creation than are found in the Legend of the Five Rings Roleplaying Game Third Edition core rule book.
Prayers & Treasures is a rules supplement and its use requires the Legend of the Five Rings Role-Playing Game Third Edition core rule book.
