    The penalties of an Unmask are typically either Glory Rank Glory or Honor Rank Honor... because the fundamental of whichever you pick is either shameful  or an embarrassment. 
    I concur that "no on" no-self-control Samurai don't get the benefit of an unmask unless they are compromised... 
    ... but the penalties are from the behavior triggered, not the unmask itself. And each of the unmasks is in fact a "bad act" in samurai culture. 
    The fundamental disconnect is players who neither care about not are willing to play to the social goals of samurai culture: conformity, proficiency, tenacity, and stoicism.

    If you're having an emotional outburst while not compromised, you're LYING about your emotional outburst. Losing your temper to the point of having an outburst is (one of the options for) what Compromised IS. If you think a certain situation should anger your character enough for them to become Compromised, the appropriate course of action is to tell your GM that and ask if you can receive enough ad hoc Strife to become Compromised and then Unmask.

    Courtier's Resolve is also good. 1 Void point resets Strife.

    Not when using the grid rules-  it becomes an 18 shaku=3 ken step... (each band is 3 grids movement...)

    @scottomail, if you're having trouble with the black dice,like I did, here's a hint: use a wax crayon in yellow or some other light colour to rub across each face until the engraved mark is filled with colour.  Then, wipe off the flat part of the face with a paper towel..  It makes things much more readable.

    Bokken is already OK to use with Iaijutsu Cuts, no need to homerule it.

    You can, before or after an action (note the timing difference). Pg 262.

    Rounds are bigger than turns. Everyone takes a TURN while you go ROUND the table, is how I memorised it.

    Technically, SOCIETY will ragequit on you. Via execution.
    Though, to be fair, you quit on Rokugani society first.

    You need to use the ring corresponding to the stance you're in for any roll. You can't use other rings for rolls, even if that ring would've been the only option for the roll.
    EDIT: For completeness sake, the rule is in page 251, last paragraph of first column.

    Oh, bugger. Got my wires crossed. You can't WATER STANCE actions that require a roll, my bad. I'll edit my original post. Thanks for catching that.

    The (Kakita) Kakita Duelist has no Ring bonuses for either Composure Rings, so the best it can get is an Earth+Water of 3 for a Composure of 6.

    On the upside, if you get drawn into the depths of Jigoku, just imagine the number of beasties you get to kill RIGHT THERE.

    Apparently, THAT was the section when they decided to make sure there was no technical reading-derived abuses. Take a look at Earth Needs No Eyes, and realise that, without that caveat, you could (very, very, very, very, VERY technically) just keep casting it for infinite Vigilance.

    If you have 0 Glory and 0 Honor, you're... done? Like, literally? If you're a Samurai, you've taken seppuku to the face already, because you behaving like that is going to hurt the image of your lord, and that is NOT going to fly. If you're Ronin, no-one reputable is hiring you, which means they're hiring you to do non-reputable things, which probably means you're dead, because the people who you'll be doing the non-reputable things TO are going to very much care, and they can kill you without any repercussions (because, you know, you have 0 Glory and 0 Honour and 0 Status).
    Then n!D is staking is OWN Glory on the fact that his waifu is awesome, which is going to not end up well for either of them when it turns out she isn't awesome by Rokugan standards.

    Maybe that's not Unmasking. Maybe that's a downtime activity between actual scenes, meaning Shahi is just roleplaying lowering her Strife to half her Composure. Maybe she DOES have a custom passion that lets her kick away an extra 3 Strife whenever she and not!Daigtosu have downtime together.
    She can't gain Glory because Glory is public perception - no matter how much n!D might like her outbursts, if he tells people her Glory is still going to tank.
