"We're so pleased to be able to offer so many different ways for Legend of the Five Rings fans to represent and celebrate their favourite Great Clans,” Adds Katrina Ostrander, Creative Director of Story & Setting at Fantasy Flight Games. “Whether it's wearing your clan's colours on tote bags and tees, decorating your space with beautiful prints and accent pillows, or recording your character's journey in a themed notebook, this shop offers something for everyone, no matter whether you're a fan of the card game, roleplaying game, or the fiction."
At launch, fans can expect to see merchandise designed around gorgeous art they might recognize from the games.
