What is known about Rokuganspace?

I am curious as to what information is available that fleshes out the solar system that Rokugan resides in.

I would like to know this too, though. ;)

The only D&D stuff for Rokugan seems to be in the 3e OA handbook. Is there any information in there at all? IDK if it would not count if it wasn't a TSR/WotC thing, but I know there are more books by (I think) AEG? Anything in there?

There are quite a few books for Legend of the Five Rings RPG, which is Rokugan. I am interested in learning more about the world, but at this point more about the celestial space in which the world inhabits.

I can skim through my 2e L5R books, which were pre-d20, and see if there's anything mentioned there

To the best of my knowledge, there isn't really any info on anything that could be termed "Rokuganspace." There are astrologers who study the stars, and besides the Sun and the Moon (which are deific entities and not strictly celestial bodies as we know them), there were seven other heavenly bodies that were identified. It wasn't known if they were actual planets, stars, or what, but they were named after the seven Fortunes: Benten, Bishamon, Daikoku, Ebisu, Fukurokujin, Hotei, and Jurojin.

I think the most you'll find on it will be in L5R: Winter Court- Kyuden Asako, and that doesn't cover a whole lot.
