"Be like unto the wind, and nothing can resist you." —The teachings of Isawa Mitsuko

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.

Air is the most mercurial of elements, from the cool breeze that comforts a dying soldier to the cutting wind that slices away at the rock, carving canyons and spires from the mighty mountains. The essence of Air is within all things, giving life to the honeyed words of the courtier, lending speed to the brilliant steel of the duelist, carrying the arrow of the archer, and delivering the hurricane force of a devout priest. Some believe that Air is the least powerful of the elements. Those who believe so are fools.

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.

Among the various topics in this book you will discover:

  • More information on the iaijutsu dueling system of Rokugan, one of the most iconic elements of the samurai story in Legend of the Five Rings.
  • An in-depth examination of archery, its history and opinion of those in the Empire, including new Paths.
  • The power of Air magic via the Air kami, including illusion, illumination, and communication.
  • The potency of Air-related Kiho for the monks of the Brotherhood of Shinsei.
  • An entire campaign setting closely tied to the themes of Air.
