ABOUT

A curved blade hangs in the air, but the creature wielding it is invisible. Only the faint scuffle of unseen feet and soft hiss of its breath give away its presence.

Immortal beings with a ceaseless appetite for evil, the rakshasas have changed their tactics from overt destruction to covert corruption. They only reveal their true nature if they are in their homelands or want to gloat over certain victory.

Now the rakshasa rajas are building their empires again. Rakshasa spies infiltrate major city states, learning who to corrupt, and who to kill.
