The world of Kamigawa is a setting inspired by Japanese mythology, filled with strange supernatural forces that no mortal can fully comprehend. Soratami build castles in the clouds, parching or flooding the earth below with their magic without ever noticing. Nezumi slink through the swamps and darkness, slitting throats and stabbing backs. Samurai seek honor in Eiganjo castle or abroad, while Godo's bandits simply take what they want.
This game is set in an alternate Kamigawa where the Kami war never happened. Konda still stole That Which Was Taken, and used it to become immensely powerful, but the Kami never intervened, even as the other groups grew increasingly enraged or concerned. But before anyone could get too carried away, the artifact was stolen.
Now tensions are on the rise, every faction worried that its neighbor might be carrying an object of incredible power with which it could destroy them in an instant. Will cooler heads prevail, or will Kamigawa be plunged into war? Take on the role of one of the plane's groups and decide for yourself.
