THE FATE OF ROKUGAN IS FORGED IN BATTLE...
Since the founding of the Emerald Empire and the First War, conflict has shaped the history, lands, and society of Rokugan. Even in times of peace, the samurai of the Great Clans devote themselves to the arts of weaponry and war, for their generals know that the next call to arms is only a brushstroke away.
Fields of Victory details warfare in Rokugan, both past and present, and describes the units, ranks, and logistics of the armies of the Great Clans.
