  1. I enjoyed it and it does make a pleasant change from being outmanoeuvred politically all over the place.
  2. Well I will have to respectfully disagree. Fortunately I have no need to change it.
  3. Always the critics. I don't think I said he 'is actually' either - but let's add a Scalzi quote as that is often appropriate and he is far more amusing (and better punctuated/spelled correctly...) than I can ever be. Though that section is (I believe) fairly supported in FFG canon. Have you read the FFG RPG books which are also 'canon'? I suppose you could argue that perhaps the Dragon have a bucket of Togashi's blood to mark the tatttoos of current day monks which would certainly support your argument. Using the live clan champions blood who contains the soul of would tend to support mine though. So on balance I stand by that statement but thank you for your input anyway.

  6. Though we are all spoilt for news recently I have decided to publish the next of my clan reviews. This post on the prettiest clan in the whole wide world. https://shirodaidoji.blogspot.com/2019/04/l5r-newbie-part-i-introduction-to-crane.html

  8. Next update is up. It even references Red Dwarf and Order of the Stick mainly because nothing can fail to be improved by references to either. Shiro Daidoji
  9. I vaguely recall the Yori story isn't online and i was meaning to find which pack(s) it turned up in to add to the article. Possibly if it references 'here' it will eventually change to 'buy this pack'... I always tend to use combat orientated characters in the RPG but all the courtier/other classes have equally interesting setups. I tend to keep thinking ' be cool/useful to play that'. Saying that I am gm'ing currently so not actually playing
  10. I have written a newbies introduction to the new5R Crab Clan. At the blog at https://shirodaidoji.blogspot.com/2019/03/l5r-newbie-part-i-introduction-to-crab.html

  12. 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
  13. 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.
  14. 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).
  15. 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.
  16. 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
  17. 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
  18. 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.
  19. I am pleased with the amount of stuff coming out. Lots of lovely things to look forward too. Well done FFG...
  20. I suspect if they added one new card it would no longer be 'a World Championship winning deck' so kind of defeating the object..
  21. and the article is live again at https://shirodaidoji.blogspot.com/2019/02/l5r-rpg-rules-runs-part-ii-duel-to-death.html
  22. I now find it hilarious that I originally said, 'one issue' needed fixing. Hohoho
  23. 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
  24. Removed , one issue that might change things needs addressing
  25. 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/
