Rise of the Obsidian Throne
Legion of Jigoku
The Obsidian Legions outwardly resembled a traditional Rokugani army, and maintained strict discipline. The forces of Jigoku were another matter altogether, however. Led by the Oni Lord known simply as the Maw, these forces—sometimes called the Legion of Jigoku—embodied all the chaos and destruction of the Shadowlands Horde. Their massive numbers of oni, goblins, ogres, and trolls rampaged across the countryside at Fu Leng’s biding with no reguard to human life. The only human’s acceptable to the Legion of Jigoku are the undead, who mostly had accumulated within the Shadowlands for the last 1000 years, although a number more recent members had joined them. But all of these former humans serve the will of the Oni Lords.
- The Current Military Structure of the Legion of Jigoku – 10.8k Oni and Shadowlands Creatures, 23k Undead, .3k Oni Lords = 34.1k
Oni, goblins, trolls and ogres form the brute strength of the Legion, and serve within all branches. The undead hordes form the body of this military structure, serving as shock troops, fodder and distractions for the greater threats hidden in the ranks. Sometimes the undead are laced with magics meant to spread plague as they are sacrificed. The Oni Lords are few in number, and but they have at last assumed the roles they were destined to achieve, lording over the corrupted and fallen Empire. If it were not from the Maw’s tireless will, the Oni Lords would have turned upon each other with rivalry and infighting long ago.
