  1. No, and even the first scroll happened out of nowhere, totally unexpected.
  2. Oh boy. And here I had hoped to pick up my English copy tomorrow at my local store..
  3. FUNtainment in Munich. But I ordered them explicitly, in October last year.
  4. They arrived. All five of them. 🎉 And four of the six Carcosa mythos packs that I ordered.
  5. I got a message from my FLGS (in Germany), that all five novellas arrived for me. I'll pick them up today, let's hope that they are really there!
  6. No, I just learned that from an official staff member. Asmodee Germany has some kind of "game piece replacement service", where you can ask for a free replacement. I haven't received my copy yet, and I ordered an English version. 😉
  7. In Germany, we can order replacement cards (without circles) from Asmodee.
  8. Kamoko is no clan champion? She's "just" a Battle Maiden.
  9. We wanted to go the official road, that's why we asked them in the first place if we are allowed to do it. We both did (and still do) not want to be hit with charges of copyright infringement. We would never have charged for our work and of course always given proper credit. But Asmodee Licensing said "no sirs, we cannot give permission". That was a year ago, we could try again.
  10. Well, yes, we did upgrade the book quite a lot (up to the beginning of the last cycle). However, FFG prohibited us to use any of the official material (images, stories, quotes) and turn that into an ebook. That is why we eventually stopped working on it and never published it. In addition, FFG started to publish their stories as an ebook themselves, so I do not really see any point in our work if they continue to do so with both their online and printed stories.
  11. I bought one core set on the weekend to try it with my wife. I myself am a semi-competitive L5R LCG player and have been playing card games since 1997, whilst my wife has only a little experience with the L5R LCG, which she enjoyed until we were wiped three times in a row ? So back to topic: The game does seem very confusing at the beginning. There are quite a few tokens, steps, phases, all that might seem overwhelming in the beginning. However, if you like card games and cooperative games, this one will be very rewarding to my mind. The atmosphere of the story/cards is immense and something completely different compared to most of the other games. Of course, we got wiped in our first adventure. But even failure does not end an campaign... I am hooked and I want to get deeper into the game, but I need my wife to come along. I bought to have a (board) game to play with her, after all. Just buy the core set, and play a few matches.
  12. They managed to turn Yoritomo's Alliance into the Mantis clan as on of the Great Clans in the CCG, I am pretty sure that FFG can (and will) accomplish something similar. But it takes time. You cannot expect the story to make leaps so that we will be on the same level after 2 years that we had been at the end of the CCG (and please, almighty Kami, let pirates riding on dinosaurs never happen again!).
  13. This one, DriveThruFiction. It is still on sale there. I hope it is ok to post the link.
  14. You can also buy the ebook version of the novella, it was on sale last week for 4 or 5$. Same store that also provides the free story ebooks for FFG.
  15. Can we PLEASE get that province somehow as a full art card? ? so beautiful!
  16. I would not want my precious clan to go down that dark route and kill away my beloved leader...
  17. You don't have to buy the Phoenix pack either, if you're not going to play Phoenix and can't/don't want to use the other cards in the pack. You can also buy them with a friend and share the card pool (as long as you play different clans ).
  18. Please do not take any offence of my following words: I think this is a lame excuse. Quit the game because there exist Decks that might be more powerful than yours? Scorpion are strong, yes, but they are not unbeatable. If you and your friends don’t like this particular deck, build others with different strategies or even different clans altogether. Try to beat a scorpion in local tournaments or a Kotei. It is very rewarding. Why the store did that, I cannot even imagine. Unless you have been the only customers for the game. Which would be sad.
  19. I chose Spider Clan as the most despicable one.. (I stopped playing the CCG when they started to arise, but not because of them).
  20. I think they will all be unaligned, like the first char that we've seen. So will Yoritomo, as they wrote in this article that he would not be limited by any element to join a clan. I am very happy to see him this early. It will take a while until they will be a fully featured clan, though. At least that is what I think. Unless they release a new unaligned stronghold (the one in the first pack) for Yoritomo's Alliance..
  21. Well, as she will also be a freelancer (if I read that correctly), she can still work for FFG and contribute amazing lore/stories.
  22. It is a book (which you can buy) and was announced recently. It also contains two promo cards, Ofushikai (Extended Art) and Kaito Kosori (Alternate Art).
  23. That depends. ;-) If both of you play the same clan, you most likely should buy a pack for each. If you're not, and you're not even splashing each other's clan, one pack is sufficient. A friend of mine and I bought every pack twice, but we realised that this means just a lot of dead (duplicate) cards, so we will go with one pack for both of us with the next cycle.
