Heroes of Rokugan

The year is 1137.

Four years ago, Rokugan faced the forces of the Lying Darkness at Volturnum. With the return of the Empire’s ancestors through Oblivion’s Gate, the Shadow was defeated, though at great cost. Many of these spirits chose to remain in the mortal realm, to help Rokugan recover from the grievous wounds dealt by the Empire’s enemies during the War Against the Darkness. Emperor Toturi I, himself a returned spirit, has made every effort to reintegrate the other spirits into the modern Empire. The major conflicts over the last decade have taken their toll, and Rokugan has been long in rebuilding. But the Empire’s foes have been biding their time as well, and the reign of Toturi is not as secure as most believe…

Don't miss the Saturday night political interactive! Come in costume for extra fun, but remember to check Midwest GameFest's Cosplay Policy (e.g. no real weapons).


Many people enjoy wearing a costume to L5R LARP-type events, or even just to play modules! Please feel free to create your own costume, and be as authentic (or not!) as you like. There are some great resources available over at the Heroes of Rokugan Costuming page.
