Legend of the Five Rings – Journey to The West Session 1

The winter sun is rising over Morning Glory Castle, one of the most beautiful, remote castles in the Okagun province. The Empress is holding court, and onto our stage walks Akasko Tripitaka. A storyteller, a historian, a peaceful monk: he is about to be sent on a journey to uncover the secrets of the Lying Darkness, a great threat to the Empire.

In his journey he will be joined by two incredibly rambunctious near-demigods. Can the strange trio work together to save the Empire?


  • James – Akasko Tripitaka.  A straight-lace, sarcastic historian/monk who is suddenly way in over his head
  • Matt – Sun Toku.  Former leader of the Monkey Clan; sent on a false mission across the Shadowlands, where he was corrupted with the Taint, granting him extraordinary abilities and stranding him far from home.
  • Manda – Matsu Bajie.  A jovial pig woman; once a respected general in the Lion clan, now a hedonistic exile and amateur comedian.

    Which sense of the word “came” are you referring to for Son Toku wondering “if he came there last night”?
    (I’m well aware of how dirty a mind I have…)
