(this isn't going to be on topic for the most of you.. but someone my know something)

Was going to put this in obscure knowledge.. but I may as well put it out there in its own thread..

AEG released a book for L5R at Gencon 2012 call Whispered Secrets, they might have used it for a tourney? maybe..
It was a "Gencon Exclusive" Does anyone know anything about it??

My memory is not good on this but I think I checked on this.  They said they were supposed to release it but it was held up for some reason.

Looks like I'll be adding another to your want list (unfortunatly)

here you go.. its seems that when they the 15th ed books you could buy 9 of them with the different Clans on the back..
15th ed, Crab
15th ed, Crane
15th ed, Dragon
15th ed, Lion
15th ed, Mantis
15th ed, Phoenix
15th ed, Scorpian
15th ed, Spider
15th ed, Unicorn

However.. they did print a limited number that were given to the writers etc.. this one has the imperial crest on the back..a Chrysenthem..

Sorry for the pic.. best I have at the momentt..

So you think this was some introductory module for their new 4th Edition release?

Did you ever find a copy of Whispered Secrets? What if this is actually a huge wind up and it doesn't really exist? That would be hilarious right?

Omg $82! Was Whispered secrets really the valuable part of that listing or was it the copy of strongholds? I can send you a text only version of it if you want. I just thought that since nobody seems to know anything about it and its called Whispered Secrets that it would be the perfect inside joke.

Did you get your copy on ebay? How much did you pay if you dont mind me asking? I guess Ill just keep looking online and maybe someday Ill own one too. Would you ever consider doing a full colour scan? I heard it was exclusively printed for GMs at Gencon, is that true to your knowledge? How many do you think exist then?

I bought almost the entire line of the Limited ed 4th direct from AEG in one go, they threw in a freebie or 2 with the order.. one of them was Whispered Secrets..

What you can find online is basically what I originally posted above, in fact, my post over on the FFG (think) L5R site is what got the text only version released..

There are a few people that have said online that they have a copy.. when they tried to get a brazillan version (?) of L5R up and running on a kickstartish site they offered copies to high tier backers (it didn't happen in the end). est 20 odd (?).. I only say this as there was a photo of the 2013 exclusive game it there looked to be about that 50 odd people there and that was a sourcebook, so yes, there should be less if its only for the GM's.. complete guess though..

I've seen 2 copies come up for sale on ebay since I posted in 2013, the other maybe 2 years or so ago.. so averaging 1 every 2 years.. sorry I don't do the scanning thing.. I see there are semi regular requests on reddit and 7chan so one will surface eventually (usually)
