The Shadow Above

The Shadow Above- Episode 1

Let the games begin...

“The mantis stalks the cicada, unaware of the shadow above”
-Mantis Proverb

This is an actual play recording for my Legend of the 5 Rings 4th edition game that I run most weekends over Roll20 and Skype. It’s recorded and posted as unedited play, please let me know about problems. The players are Alex playing Natsuki, Bob playing Viscous, Lee playing Barushi, and Ryan playing Sadaharu.

It is the dawn of the 13 century of Rokugan. Over a quarter of a century later, the world is still reeling from the Destroyer War. A new generation have become samurai without knowing what war is. Peace is a good thing after so much strife and hardship, but in the words of Shinsei, “Wherever there is light, there must be shadow.”
