General Notes

All classes and prestige classes I used are in the Player's Handbook, Dungeon Master's Guide, and Oriental Adventures.  I also used a few feats from the Rokugan Campaign Setting, but it is not necessary to own this book to use the conversions.

Money 1e gp have a different value than 3e gp, and so translating from 1e OA currency to 3e currency is not straightforward.  I did a "commodity basket" analysis and found the following values to be approximately true:

1e OA currency 3e currency
1 chi'en 1 gp
6 tael/ch'ao 1 gp
6 yuan 1 sp
6 fen 1 cp

Jishin Mushi (Earthquake Beetle, New Monster): These are monstrous beetles capable of initiating a small earthquake (jishin) when threatened.  They are usually dull brown or black in color, though some are mottled black and brown.  They have bad eyesight and are liable to wander into a camp of adventures at inopportune times... Protected by a great carapace and as muscle-bound as a tiger, they are relatively fearless for good reason.  Most animals avoid and other vermin them.  The creature has yet to appear in any 3rd edition D&D material.

Note: I suppose there are a number of ways to portray Fukawa.  He might be extremely wise and stupid (as below), or very intelligent and lacking common sense, or ignorant and unwise, or simply normal and annoying and friendly.  He is however, 200 years old, and to explain this fact, I used the Sennin template from Jade Dragons and Hungry Ghosts.
