Creatures of Rokugan:Legend of the Five Ringsby Brian Bates, Shawn Carman, Sean Holland
Rokugan has never belonged to humans alone. Ages before the dawn of the Empire, great civilizations built by non-human races, such as the naga and ogres, marked the land. Though their civilizations are gone now, their descendants still dwell upon the earth and in the seas. Since the catastrophic Fall of Fu Leng, oni - spawn of Jigoku - and their terrible offspring have walked the Shadowlands and warred against the Empire without cease. A dazzling variety of creatures great and small have always been a part of this world - some fearsome, some benign, some visitors from Spirit Realms. No understanding of Rokugan would be complete without them.
