    DarwinsDog got a reaction from Gaffa in L5R getting heat after SU&SD Review   
    This is absolutely ridiculous. Not the criticism, but the outrage. It was a few sentences in the appendix of a review. It was so tangential to the piece that the author didn't even include it in the main body. Now every place in the internet that discusses L5R is has a thread like this of people getting offended at how other people are too easily offended.
    He said it made him feel "a tiny bit weird." That's a pretty damning rebuke right there. /s
    For those who are upset by the comments I recommend this browser extention. It will save you tons of stress.

    Daidoji Uji. The Daidiji are the saboteurs of the Crane. 
    For myself I hope to see the mighty mighty Toku some back. I liked his story a lot. Yasuki Taka was always a favorite. With or without the Kolat, I'm indifferent there.

    They also own a lot of Ratling, Naga, Brotherhood of Shinsei, Toturi's Army, Shadowlands Horde, Shadow, and Spirit art. Some of those were around as long as and had as many players as Spider. That doesn't mean you'll see those factions in the LCG.
    I'd be happy to see YA come back (as the alliance, as opposed to unified Mantis Clan), and if they are doing two new factions, then I'd rather have Ratlings (already mentioned in a story) than Spider. I would expect that they are working on (at least outlining) some story arcs that introduce new factions. They may even be entirely new factions.

    DarwinsDog got a reaction from Rawls in Hope for Mantis/Spider/Etc. Players   
    He had another son in the story, but not one that had been captured by the shadowlands (but at least this time he won't have to be retconned into existence).  I have no idea what the fanbase looked like at the end of the CCG. I (and most of the players I know) gave up on the game by that point as the story was just bad by that point, in large part because of the Spider story.  
    Do you really think they're going to bring back all 15 clans from the original CCG? As a Naga and Ratling player, I really hope they don't. Too many factions dilutes story opportunities, writer talent, card pools, etc. If they add a faction, they need to consider it very carefully.

    DarwinsDog reacted to shosuko in Hope for Mantis/Spider/Etc. Players   
    I'm interested in how they would introduce a new faction.  I agree that a deluxe box would be the best way to introduce a new faction, as you can give them proper support for a full deck (no splash in dynasty means you need a LOT to build a deck) but if they utilize Strongholds to create themes like saying "any Imperial card counts as a card of your faction" or "Any Magistrate counts as a card of your faction" it could open up some really interesting decks...
    I'd love it if there were alliance strongholds that were like Scorpion + Dragon but you get 0 influence.

    Lest we forget the story has been reset (and BADLY needed to be). It may not develop the same way as before if for no other reason than the annual player decisions that directly alter the path of the story. 
    As for players not coming over because of the mechanics being changed, I find it laughable. People played the CCG IN SPITE OF the mechanics not because of them. The story was the lure; the original mechanics were problematic at best. FFG has done a good job of creating a mechanically sound, interesting game that kept as much of the CCG mechanics as it could while fixing the massive problems (the CCG was one of the biggest examples of "snowballing" in the hobby) and integrating elements like the Rings more tightly into the play.

    No we didn't. We saw two of the Emperor's sons. There is absolutely nothing pointing to him becoming Daigotsu yet. And, to be honest, there isn't even anything pointing to Shahai becoming a Bloodspeaker in this timeline.
     
    Oh, seriously? Can you point me to your personal psychic? I would like to ask him the next lottery numbers.
     
    Yes. The Spider fanbase were larger than any other clan's by the end of the CCG because everyone else abandoned the festering pile of garbage that became the story of the CCG. I wonder* if the the Spider prominent role in the story has anything to do with it, and with the CCG capitulating...
     
    * I don't.

    I hate to be that guy, but I really hope the spider clan never comes back. I was not a fan of their story and all of the massive retcon that went on to make it happen. "No the emperror totally had another son this whole time. Also there were tons of people in the shadowlands who were not really bad, but they were still tainted and following the lord of Jigoku. They've also been there the whole time, you just never noticed." 
    Mantis seems likely since Yoritomo has already been mentioned. It would be cool to see a way to include shadowlands, maybe as a faction that you can only purchase with influence.
