The winds are a powerful force in Rokugan, both literally and figuratively. They power the vessels of the Mantis across the known world, bring the storms that bless or ruin harvests, and empower no less than five different Fortunes. Like all forces of nature, the people of Rokugan respect and fear the wind, for it is beyond control, and beyond understanding.
The Book of Air is the first in a series of elemental sourcebooks that will explore the themes of each of the five elemental Rings. From the whispers issued behind fans in the Imperial Court, to the arrows loosed upon enemies on the battlefield, every aspect of the mercurial and impermanent essence of Air will be examined.
In this book you will find explorations of:
Iaijutsu and its traditions throughout the clans
Archery and how the various armies utilize it
Spells concerning revelation and deception
Kiho utilized by the Brotherhood
The court setting of the remote Kyuden Kurogane-Hana
And much more!
