AEG is running a new contest for avid writers and fans of the Legend of the Five Rings RPG who want to be published authors. In the summer of 2011, AEG will release The Imperial Histories, a sourcebook for the L5R RPG 4th Edition. This sourcebook will present individual chapters covering ten separate eras in Rokugan’s history, with all the information a GM would need to run a campaign in that era and all the mechanics a player would need to play in it.
During the month of October, the L5R RPG 4th Edition Design Team will be accepting proposals for a fan-created era or setting to be depicted within The Imperial Histories. This chapter will include fiction, a timeline, prominent heroes, and mechanics, just like all the other chapters.
For complete details on the contest visit the L5R website. The fourth edition of the Legend of the Five Rings Roleplaying Game was released in June of 2010.
