Legend of the Five Rings: Accursed Destiny
Master of the Elements
There are a handful of individuals born in each generation who command such incredible power that they surpass other shugenja to the extent that shugenja surpass peasants. They are the stuff of legends and nightmares, and their actions write history. Some have been great boons to the Empire, but others have threatened to destroy it. Many of the Phoenix Elemental Masters have taken this path, as have any with the Naka name. This technique becomes self-evident to anyone who can meet the daunting requirements.
Technique Rank: 6+
Replaces: Any Shugenja School of appropriate rank
Requirements: Lore: Theology 5, Spellcraft 7, one Ring at 6, all other Rings at 4, have 5 spells mastered
Technique: The Secrets Between All Things-The true secret is that all kami share the same spirit, regardless of their elemental affinities. The Master of the Elements loses his deficiencies, while retaining affinities. He may cast any spell he knows as a spell of a different element by increasing that spells’s Mastery Level by 1. For example: A Mastery Level 1 Water spell could be cast as a Mastery Level 2 Fire spell. Finally, he gains a Free Raise on all Spellcasting Rolls.
