  1. L5R love letter needs an update, I believe it’s tied to the old lore, not the new one. Battle for Rokugan is an excellent war game. It takes many excellent mechanics from Game of Thrones and streamlines it down to a 2 hour game. I wish it could go up to 7 players but it really needs to be on the shelf of any serious L5R fan. Lastly, if FFG brought out a Battlelore/Battles of Westeros game in the L5R setting I would buy it in a heartbeat. You wouldn’t even be able to see the money coming out of my wallet it would be so fast. I get excited just thinking about it - a Crane/Lion core set with expansions for each faction and neutrals.
  2. I doubt they will - otherwise people who would have bought it may play it and start thinking the fun isn’t worth the price...
  3. Glad I’m not the only one then! 😂 I tell people why I’m running my deck and they just look at me with confused pity and say “but...it’s not competitive.” I’m cathching up on the lore though and now I feel like I need a Crab/Mantis deck too.
  4. Ok, so a small amount of hope then. 😑
  5. There are videos online if people proxying it, check them out. Yes, people are excited and will use it. Large centre-piece models have been a part of miniatures since at least the 90’s. See Ganes Workshop for more details.
  6. It’s odd that playing a card in a language you don’t speak is fine, but playing the art only version isn’t. I suppose the foreign one at least has the numbers...
  7. What months span Q3 of 2019 for FFG? I have a big Armada event in mid-August and I’ll be pretty annoyed if the SSD isn’t our by then.
  8. You know FFG, it’s bad enough waiting a year for wave release news, now my preorders are taking 12 months too...I’m almost wondering if I should cancel and re-order later, I don’t need to risk the store I preordered from going bust and me losing my deposit...they will have had my money for 12 months by September...
  9. Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat? Where is that rules nugget hidden?
  10. The idea, being, I assume, the Phoenix devote their whole life and soul to knowing the kami better than anyone else and hiding away what they know so others can’t share in the power, hence why meishodo bothers them so much because it has given the Unicorn a way to bypass all the hard work Phoenix has put in?
  11. Excuse my ignorance, I’ve seen “maho” as a keyword I believe, but what exactly is it? Is it some shady school of magic like meishudo that good boys and girls shouldn’t learn about? In fact, I think it’s mentioned in the crab rat-man Scout card, who I’ve only just learned recently is apparently a “good” race... ...I was wondering why crab have orc and ratpeople characters.
  12. So I was discussing the L5R lore with some new players and I got to thinking: It appears that there were some pretty bonkers events in the CCG lore. As I’ve gotten more invested in the game I’m finding I have a strong desire to reflect my ckan’s outlook in my deck building. I’ve been drawn to Support of the Scorpion for my crab deck, even though it’s not as competitive because I feel like building bridges with Scorpion is the best chance Crab currently has to get the jade/court influence they need to defend the wall. I also think that if there were ever any “Dark Alliance” shenanigans between the Crab and the Shadowlands I would feel morally compelled to denounce my clan and embrace another (apparently this happened in the old Lore? WTF crab???). My question is, do most of you - Mr & Ms L5R player - feel the same, where if your clan did some extreme thing you would switch your main clan, or are most L5R players happy to support their clan no matter what they pull? The other example I thought of is would any Scorpion players revolt if their clan straight up murdered the emperor to get the throne for their clan?
  13. In an official tournament, is it legal to have cards in a foreign language in your deck as long as they are official L5R cards?
  14. Am I right in assuming the crane vs lion “war” over Toshi Ranbo was allowed to get to the level it did because “technically” the two clans hadn’t declared war and they were being careful to limit the sizes of the forces involved and the geographical scope of the conflict?
