Twenty-five years after the conclusion of the Destroyer War, the Emerald Empire of Rokugan is much changed. The devastation from a generation of wars left the Empire in need of resources, and so the Empress gave the command to push forward into the ruined Ivory Kingdoms, now the Colonies, for that which Rokugan needed.

Now, 25 years later, the Great Clans chafe at decades of peace and squabble with one another over issues of power and prestige. In the Colonies, they have the opportunity to face one another over resources and secrets long forgotten, even as the Empire faces a mysterious enemy in the Dark Naga and his forces. It is a time of competition, a time of confusion, and a time of conquest.
