  1. Student of a School Occassionally a Samurai is rewarded with the opportunity to study at a School whether it is within their own clan or at another Clan. Sometimes a young Samurai with a great potential is reassigned to another School within their Clan, like Kakita Ryoko, the former Imperial Advisor and famous author of “Winter”. Rokugani society practises the exchange of diplomatic hostages, these young Samurai are usually trained as regular Clan Samurai (The Worldly Ronin School) during their time with the host Clan and either continue their studies when they return home after their Gempuku or enroll in one of the Schools of the parent Clan. The Crane, Dragon and Lion Clans trade as political favors, the opportunity to study at the Akodo Commander, Mirumoto Twa Heavens Adept and Kakita Schools. Assigned By: Daimyo or Master Sensei. Honor Award: +5 XP to Complete: 20 (Gamemasters may require the Samurai to spend additional XP on the starting skills and Techniques of the newleassigned School.) Restrictions: Shugenja and Shinobi Schools do not accept outside students because of their need for secrecy. Special: There is no Advancement table for Student of A School, instead they follow the Rank 1 curriculum of their newly assigned School. Title Ability: Same as the School Ability of the newly assigned School. After completion of this Title the Samurai may continue to advance both Schools. Design Note: This Title allows a player to “multi-class” their characterwhile also emulating certain aspects of the Legend of the Five Rings setting usually reserved for NPCs.
  2. Tenchi, yes Rise of skywalker did make more at the box office than earlier Star Wars movies but that is because the numbers are not adjusted for inflation. When adjusted for inflation then Rise of Skywalker is the second worst grossing Star Wars movie and if we look at the profits of that movie it barely broke even. All other Star Wars films except Solo made nice profits.
  3. My speculation on which new Schools we will get in the book: Crab: A Kuni [something] Crane: Asahina Archer or Kakita Artisan Dragon: Agasha Armor/Weaponsmith Lion: Matsu Beastmaster Phoenix: Ishikin (Void Adept) Scorpion: Soshi Shadow Adept Unicorn: Iuchi [something] Centipede: Priestess of the Sun
  4. Several "missing" Schools: Crane: Asahina Archer, Daidoji Harrier, Daidoji Scout, Doji Rhetorician, Kakita Artisan Lion: Akodo kensai, Matsu Beastmaster, Ikoma Historian Phoenix: Asako Henshin, Isawa Void Adept Titles: Sensei, Lion Deathseeker
  5. Aconyte, an Asmodee subsidiary will publis a Keyforge novel this summer but no rpg stuff.
  6. FFG also stops publishing their small hardcover novellas. Aconyte, an Asmodee subsidiary takes over publishing Legend of the Five Rings, Arkham Horror, keyforge and Descent paperback novels. Their first L5R novel, Curse of Honor is due in May.
  7. Yes, please add sections on Regions and Upbringings. Just for completions sake.
  8. There are three main types of adventuring parties in Rokugan. Emerald Magistrates and their assistants. They are Imperial troubleshooters. Clan Samurai with a few allies/friends/observers/guests from other Clans doing Samurai stuff. Ronin who don't belong to a Clan just trying to survive. Emerald Empire is the sourcebook with lore and adventure seeds.
  9. Schools that need to be done also: Crane: Asahina Archer, Doji Rhetorician, Daidoji Harrier. Lion: Akodo Kensai, Ikoma Historian. Scorpion: kagenari (Shadow Adept) Titles: Sensei, Shogun
  10. There are three types of L5R campaigns. The usual type is a group of Emerald Magistrates of samurai from different clans. Then there isthe Clan specific campaign with all PCs belonging to one Clan and that Clan's major allies. The last type of campaign is the Ronin/Gaijin campaign with PCs doing their own thing. The Beginner Game, Palace of the Emerald Champion, Dark Tides, Mask of the Oni adventures all assumes the PCs are Emerald Magistrates. Wedding at Kyotei Castle and Winter's Embrace are one-shots for samurai strangers but are easily adapted to an Emerald Magistrate campaign. The upcoming Sins of Regret and this years GenCon adventure are for Ronin/Gaijin but should be easily adaptable for an Emerald Magistrate campaign also.
  11. In FFGs rulebooks and fiction several Schools and Titles have been mentioned that do not yet have a write-up. Crab Clan: none Crane Clan: Daidoji Harrier, Doji Rhetoritician, Kakita Artisan. Titles: Elite Royal Guard Dragon Clan: none Lion Clan: Matsu Beastmaster. Titles: Kensai, Deathseeker Phoenix Clan: Izawa Ishiken (Void Adept). Titles: Elemental Adept Scorpion Clan: Titles: Kagenari (Master of Shadows) Unicorn Clan: Titles: White Guard Generic titles: Abbot, Sensei Are there any Schools and Titles I have forgotten? Any from earlier editions that need s to be updated?
