Campaign concept art from years ago.
The full, original version of the world map I posted earlier. Covered in plot-notes.
Reference drawings for the Unicorn. Emphasis on variety of weapons, foreign languages, and outdoor training. Decided against giving their shugenja the Asako Inquisitor look. Bottom one is Shinjo waking up and returning, bringing a small entourage of foreign sorcerers.
Inspired by above drawings, I tried boiling down the cultural essence of the Mantis and the Lion.
