  1. Bruh, it's one card in the Conflict deck. One. Odds are it's never going to be seen. And since it's only one it had better be pretty darned solid to justify the slot. Man, I can't wait for your other six posts for when the other Clans get their versions of this type of card...

    Beginner Game

    Bruh. It's a role-playing game. Try role-playing. I can understand passing because you don't think there's enough content, sure. But it seems your real gripe is no Crab. Try a different Clan. I'm Scorpion first. Unicorn when I'm feeling frisky. But I'm playing an Ikoma Bard in my current game and it's great. There's something to enjoy in every Clan. It's like you're proud you've limited your ability to have fun.
  3. Nope. Ikoma Bard school abilities only target allies. I have jiujutsu. I flipped a merchant onto his backside for thinking he could bribe me last session. Why is the cat even there? I don't know how that can be blamed on me at all! We all know I don't know how to use a sword.
  4. I'm actually not bored at all! I get that there are roles and not everyone will be able to do everything; I completely embrace that and dig it. I just want to make sure I'm not missing something I could be doing from an in-setting perspective. So no one is expecting me to contribute in a meaningful way. I grabbed 'Battle' as a skill so I could maybe give tactical in a conflict advice based upon my PC's reading of historical accounts.
  5. I didn't know where else to post this, so here I am. I'm playing an Ikoma Bard in a 4th Edition L5R game along with a Togashi monk, a Kuni shugenja, an Utaku Battle Maiden, an archer, and another bushi character. So, combat is a thing. I generally play courtiers but I struggle to find a way to make them meaningfully contribute to a fight. Unfortunately, I can't easily find anything in any of the 4th Edition books that talk about this. Is there material out there that does? Buying ranks in kenjutsu is boring to me. If the school was supposed to swing sharpened metal bars it would be a school ability. There's also the problem of me then carrying a katana, people thinking I'm a bushi, challenging me to a duel, and I lose badly... I like the idea of characters specializing, not being proficient at everything and having to work creatively when out of their element. But I'm struggling to do that here. Suggestions?

    New To Game - What To Buy

    Thanks for the advice!

    CiV L5R

    I can give you a copy of Civ6 and its expansions. I got a copy with Humble Monthly and I will never use it.
  8. Late game force your opponent into inefficient defensive maneuvers. Sure, you can send all you units in a massive push, but you can't hide that and you can't effectively get your opponent to waste cards in Edge. Seeing Yularen sucks, yeah, but I still think spreading damage around is the better overall play.
  9. So, I just ordered a single core for my wife and I to check out. I know this game is story-driven, so beyond that core in what order should I buy stuff? Any other things I should know going forward?

    Game is Officially Dead...

    Attendance was on a steady decline year over year, at least at GenCon anyway. It's a matter of allocation of limited resources. With L5R being the new LCG hotness, and how big the GenCon event turned out to be for it (it sold out twice), it doesn't make sense to continue to provide any kind of support for the Star Wars LCG. I am curious about what will happen with the promos they still have. The full bleed cards, Force commit cards, affiliation cards, Death Star dials, and everything that can't be repurposed for other Star Wars games. I'm sorta interested in going to Worlds just to see if they try to dump all of that stuff there.

    Cool. I'm glad people are having fun. I suppose things would be easier to control in an online environment. Me? I stick to in-person. I suppose if things were agreed to in advance that would be fine. Eh, maybe this is just my contrarian grumpy side showing...

    Thanks but that's not for me. I'm not keenly interested in fan-made cards. Essentially it bifurcates the game: the official releases and the game with fan releases. What then with players who don't want to mess with fan cards? They're at a disadvantage because they want to stick to official cards? And who says what fan cards are more official than others? By all means have fun with that stuff, but the game is dead.

    Future of the Game

    I talked to a friend this past Saturday and let him know I'm passing on Star Wars. I've been playing it since it came out but, at least where I live, there are only really the two of us who play. But everyone and their second cousin is playing L5R. And I love L5R and have since Celestial Edition. On Saturday's when we played Star Wars, again, it was pretty much just the two of us. Sometimes a third guy would show as his schedule allowed. With L5R on Saturday, there are 6-10 people there. And games being played at our main store and other locations throughout the week. I don't know if L5R will be the deathblow to the Star Wars LCG, but I know what I'm moving to. I'll still buy Force Packs, and I plan to hit a regional tournament (don't want to waste my bye), but for regular games, I'm putting it away. I only hope FFG finds a way to revitalize the game because I want to play it, but the players simply aren't there.
  14. Then annotate the areas that have been updated referring back to the errata. That way you at least know there's something to look at.
  15. Still not compiled into a single document? The beta book becomes less and less relevant with every update. By design. Why aren't these updates being included in the beta book?
