Legend of the Burning Sands

Releases August 2008
(304 pages, hardbound)

To the north of the Emerald Empire, there lies a mysterious land called the Burning Sands. In an extraordinary city known as the Jewel of the Desert, great empires clash and deadly intrigues abound.

To the rest of the Empire the Burning Sands are a gaijin enigma, but as the exile of the Unicorn, and later the Scorpion have proven the destinies of these two lands are intertwined. Little do they realize that soon the dangers facing the people of the desert will also face the Clans of the Emerald Empire.

The Burning Sands setting has exerted a powerful pull on the imagination of gamers since the 1998 debut of the Legend of the Burning Sands Collectible Card Game. As in the Legend of the Five Rings Roleplaying Game, this book allows you the chance to live out all-new adventures in a land of mystery and magic.

Legend of the Burning Sands Roleplaying Game features:

  • Descriptions and new mechanics for all the major factions of the Burning Sands; from the warlike Yodotai, to the mystical Ashalan, to the scholars of the Qabal.
  • New rules covering the flavors of magic unique to the Burning Sands, as well as the ta-haddi dueling rite. 
  • Detailed treatment of the jinn, including rules for summoning and creating these legendary characters.
  • Continuation of the history of the Burning Sands from the end of the Legend of the Burning Sands CCG story arc.
  • A condensed version of the Legend of the Five Rings Roleplaying Game Third Edition rules for those who wish to use this as a standalone roleplaying game product, and conversion rules for those who are already familiar with the system.

The Legend continues inside the pages of the next great AEG Epic.
