So can Shadowlands just not swim or sail? It seems like going around the wall and doing a little river hopping is a possible way into the empire.  Or is Fu-Leng just looking to complete more achievements so he can get high score when he conquerors Rokugan?

Wait for it.....

In the old Canon Crab did maintain a fairly substantial fleet just for dealing with the threat of water born Shadowlands incursions.  They made ample use of Iron Turtle style ships that carried a crew of 100+ to patrol the Sea of Shadows.

Also worth noting that at the last Winter Court RPG event run by AEG, the Crab were looking for naval backup to their existing fleet activities in the Sea of Shadows (which they ultimately got from the Mantis and the Phoenix, once the GMs got around to informing the Phoenix delegation that yes, we actually had a navy worth contributing, despite no mention of it anywhere, including the section on navies in the Book of Water)

And in Battle for Rokugan, the unique unit of the Crab is a powerful naval one.

Wait Phoenix have a navy.  I though their whole thing was the Tsunami Legion being their "naval" force.

Alas. I had my fingers crossed that with the reboot, we might get a redesigned map that has *any* comprehension of how rivers work. (Hint: NOT LIKE THAT.)

 

I'm glad to see that I'm not the only person this bothered.

WCIV was filled with all sorts of homebrewed non-sense stuff from the GMs and ST.

Makes me glad we have new writers with FFG.

One of the things that rebooted 7th Sea did that I like is they hired a cartographer to plan out their maps including making sure that things like rivers, deserts, mountains, etc were all in places relative to each other where they could naturally occur.

Nonsensical rivers aside, I should say that it's a lovely map. I like the style, which suggests ink paintings a bit.

It is very lovely, but rivers cannot be nonsensical when one can talk to the water kami. Then they make perfect sense :)

Nope- it was eternally framed in the context of cavalry/swift movement, not naval action.

 

Sometimes counter-navy, but the Phoenix's basic military status was perpetually underserved because wizards.
