The Legend of the Five Rings Beginner Game Is Out Now

The Legend of the Five Rings Beginner Game Is Out Now

August 13, 2018 Off By Dan

Fantasy Flight had some awesome Gen Con announcements, and they’re not showing any signs of slowing down. They’ve just released the beginner box for their new Legend of the Five Rings Roleplaying game!  Inside the box, you’ll get:

  • 1 Adventure Book
  • 1 Rulebook
  • 1 Introduction Sheet
  • 1 Double-sided Map
  • 10 Custom Dice
  • 4 Character Folios
  • 59 Character Tokens

From Fantasy Flight’s product page:

Within this Beginner Game, players and Game Masters gain all the tools they need to begin their adventure in Legend of the Five Rings Roleplaying. Custom dice, tokens, and maps bring the Emerald Empire to life. Meanwhile, four character folios keep the rules at player’s fingertips, allowing them to jump into the action without fretting over mechanics. The Game Master also receives an easy jumping-on point with the pre-made adventure featured in the box, giving them everything they need to keep the action flowing.

Curiously, the Legend of the Five Rings RPG doesn’t use Fantasy Flight’s own (and also brand new) Genesys Rule System for RPGs. What that means for the overall health of the Genesys system in terms of ongoing support remains to be seen.
