338 page physical book. My character was an investigator from the Kitsuki school of the Dragon clan. I tried to play him as a pragmatic, sensible, slightly unfit fellow who didn't place the highest regard on the social hierarchy.
This edition uses the Fantasy Flight Games dice system, which required some adjustment from me. The setting is rich and wonderful. In our campaign we played young samurai, sent on a secret mission to investigate the opium trade in a seedy city.
The game system and the setting are very tightly bound together. This can be great because it allows for mechanics that call back to the rich setting. But it also means I cannot easily repurpose the game system for a different setting, and if I ever revisit this game for another campaign it will need to be because I want to play in Rokugan again.
