Shadows in the West?
Shadows in the West is an audio drama based on a 4th edition Legend of the Five Rings campaign that has been ongoing since February 2017. Our game is entirely text-based.
We build each episode’s script from our Roll20 play logs, which we carefully refine to better suit an audio drama experience. That means no dice rolling, no out of character chatter, no umms or awkward silences; when you listen to our podcast, you jump right into the story. You don’t even need to know anything about L5R!
Shadows in the West seeks to tell compelling, inclusive stories by and for people from all walks of life. We have dramatically changed (or removed altogether) many aspects of Rokugan that lean on racism, Orientalism, homophobia, misogyny, etc, and we take great pride in our diverse cast and crew. If you ever find any of our content to be socially insensitive, please let us know and we will work to resolve it as quickly as possible!
(Despite our name, we are not affiliated with Shadow of the Cabal or Shadows of the Iron Dragon! We’ve been Shadows in the West for a loooong time.)
