    Palace Campaign Update

    A briefish update on Palace of the Emerald Champion (session one) is up on the blog at https://shirodaidoji.blogspot.com/2019/03/palace-of-emerald-champion-part-i.html
  2. It wouldn't effect predict as the predict fires before the attack so the stance change does not occur. At best it means the Hiruma is always attacked in (probably) earth stance so gets less forced criticals. Predict sucks anyway.
  3. My copy is missing all the 'what to do with dice' pages as well which is irritating. I should have a replacement copy arriving once Asmodee restocks it (if it re-stocks it).
  4. Yup. The sidebar says that out of conflicts invocations are once per scene. In life or death conflict situations then they can be used multiple times. Without that Shugenja's would be pretty useless otherwise.
  5. My final article on the combat rules has gone up on the blog. This covers Shugenja's, ranged combat and some teamwork. Enjoy! or not. https://shirodaidoji.blogspot.com/2019/03/l5r-rpg-rules-runs-part-iii-shugenjas.html
  6. Hi all, I have an old style review of the Sheffield Elemental Championship at Patriot Games up on the blog at https://shirodaidoji.blogspot.com/2019/03/esoteric-capability-part-i-sheffield-ec.html
  7. Good on you for giving it a go and at an EC for a tournament as well.. It does get easier and the more you play the better you will get.
  8. I am pleased with the amount of stuff coming out. Lots of lovely things to look forward too. Well done FFG...

    Flight of the crane

    I suspect if they added one new card it would no longer be 'a World Championship winning deck' so kind of defeating the object..

    I now find it hilarious that I originally said, 'one issue' needed fixing. Hohoho

    Deadliness and crit clarification

    My problem with it is that this should not be the case. Most duels (and conflicts) are ' a sufficiently skilled character trying to kill an equally sufficiently skilled character prepared for the attack' If the opponent is not 'prepared' or ready then dont roll. Just narrate it. It would probably be murder as well....jmo
  13. Removed , one issue that might change things needs addressing
  14. The Imperial Advisor dudes have also written some excellent articles on what to buy and cover some issues new and returning players might have. Have a look here https://imperialadvisor.com/articles/
  15. if you sign up to the l5r discord you can see the online league. The cup for this involves the best players and they have to publish the decks. Usually you also get to see them in play which helps. If you also access some of the online deck builders (i.e five rings db) then that also publishes decks. These may be good or bad but can give some ideas. Discord invite link https://discord.gg/nvVX9Wb five rings db https://fiveringsdb.com/ (there is also bushibuilder out there)
