Iron Dynasty is a pretty awesome setting, kind of a steampunk L5R. However, I always wondered what was in the Guidebooks, since there are no previews of them. Any new edges or hindrances? New monsters? What secrets do they hold?

Hello there,

The Guidebooks are a country-specific resource, 30-40 pages long, which includes the following information:
- History of the Province
- Social Hierarchy, Laws, Education System (if any), Religious Views
- An overview of the military
- Geography, Travel to/from/inside the Province
- Important Geographic Features
- Settlements of Note, Factions, Important People
- Random Encounter Generator
- A collection of people and creatures

In speaking with various Sensei (GMs) I have found those last two are the favorite features of the Guidebooks. While they have a good amount of material, the ability to generate random encounters specific to a province and have stats for local citizenry, military units, and monsters is very nice.

HTH.
