    What the heck is Emo Stone? Seriously, this game is 3 weeks old; can we use the actual card names for a bit?

    Personally I think l5r is a perfect setting for a game done in the same style as Telltale games. A rich story driven by player choices.

    DarwinsDog got a reaction from LordBlunt in Foamcore insert for the core box. Holds everything you need to play!   
    I wanted to share my foamcore insert for the core set box. Maybe some of you will find inspiration for your own (I'm always happy to see improvements and modifications).
    It holds 3 decks in Ultrapro sleeves, plus all of the fate, honor, and honor/dishonor cards from 3 core sets. There's only room for 2 sets of rings, but I don't expect I'll ever need the third. It's not shown in the picture, but I put some pieces of foamcore underneath each deck to make it easier to lift them out. 
    If you decide to make your own, be sure to test fit the cards before gluing things in place. There's not a lot of extra room in the design, so larger sleeves may require adjustment. I know that the FFG sleeves are a little longer, and they don't quite fit in the space I have.

    DarwinsDog got a reaction from Quizoid in Which Clan Roles can you use?   
    Roles are required for official tournaments. I believe you are required to use one, but they only add deckbuilding options. You get either 3 influence or can duplicate an element in your provinces. You are free to make a deck with 10 influence and 5 different province elements. The only ting you miss out on is the free fate that they give.

    DarwinsDog got a reaction from DarkBlack in Sleeves, FFG sleeves or UP Eclipse ?   
    I thought I'd bring this up in this thread: as per this reddit thread, it seems that UP, dragon shield, and FFG sleeves will warp and take on the pattern of the rings. Depending on the judge, this could be considered grounds for disqualification at a tournament.

    I don't even think each of these pack will have a card I want, so I'll do my homework, check the packs content on the web after release and if one pack have cards I want that will synergize with my decks, then only I'll buy the pack.
    Former player of th CCG, I shelved a ton of money on booster boxes, not even sure of what I'll get and most often not getting what I needed. Plus the player base was not great in my area at the time so trading was a pain. I ended up making deck for each clans that I barely played just for the sake of rentability.
    With the LCG model, I'll be able to tailor buy what I need. So even if they release six in six weeks, I can still buy them over six months.

    DarwinsDog got a reaction from Barby007 in New L5R Phoenix help   
    My experience is that Phoenix right now are mostly political and rely a lot on honoring your characters to get the big glory bonuses. The abilities on the cards hint at some heavy use of ring manipulation. They'll do things like add other elements to the contested rings in order to trigger abilities on their shugenga, then swap the claimed rings to ****** fate or deny their opponents. They have some cards to do that now, but not enough to focus the deck on it.

    Neither. Unlike in the CCG, there is no movement between provinces. Characters in play are either at home or in a conflict. When you change the province (with this or the other Unicorn spoiler), the same characters are participating before and after. But they haven't moved (so you can't trigger reactions to characters moving).

    Each clan will have had 2 roles. 1 was picked at Gencon, and 1 will be picked at worlds. The ones in the book are suggestions, but players are free to pick any of them.
    Why do you think they will go to twice a year for roles? Picking the role is a pretty big deal. They'd have to run a second event on the scale of the world championship to do that.  
    Besides, you don't have to play with roles at all. If your deck is legal with no role, then it's legal for any role.
