The Shadow’s Embrace, a new Legend of the Five Rings Factory Set from AEG will be shipping on July 16, 2012. We will have singles available shortly thereafter. Why a Factory Set? For more details please head over to L5R.com and check out the post regarding The Shadow’s Embrace. Or read on for vital stats on the new set.
What is a Factory Set?
A Factory Set is a product that offers a playset of all the cards in it – so 3 copies of every non-unique card and 1 copy of every unique card – for a unique price. However, contrary to a Direct to Player Set, the story associated with it is not self contained.

When will Some Guy’s Cards have singles?
