    Coyote Walks reacted to Alisair Longreach in Falling Stars - New L5R Fiction Story Discussion   
    I suspect the FFG will release the fictions piecemeal over the next month, not in a massive information dump.

    I always like Ishikawa however little sotrytime they gave him in Old5R.
     
    Kinda disappointed Aramoro did not kick the bucket.

    Coyote Walks reacted to Simplegarak in DISCUSSION: What is the single biggest issue and what single change made do you think would help L5R as a whole?   
    Crucify me for saying it... but some anime alt art would probably do some good.
    I'm looking to introduce some buddies who enjoy anime to the game as they are intrigued by the "samurai game" I've talked about. Give them some outright anime style cards and they would probably be hooked.
    Speaking of - anybody have some intro deck lists? One pal I get the feeling would be a Lion type of guy, while the other... maybe dragon or phoenix. So a deck which newbies can get a grip on quickly enough while giving them a good "sense" of what the clan is generally about. Such a thing released as a starter for newbies would probably help, too.
    Or to cover both cost & balance - maybe just implement a rule that all cards from the starter set (which seem to be the most degenerate) are limited to 1 copy per deck.

    There are other companies that are known to include a copy of errataed cards as bonus cards in the next pack they release. It would be nice but I am not expecting it for l5r.

    Coyote Walks reacted to Schmoozies in Which character is on the other side of the new card backs?   
    In O5R there were 4 main ones at this time Period. 
    Emerald Champion - Emperor's personal champion and head of the Emerald Magistrates Jade Champion - equal to the Emerald Champion dealt with matters of a spiritual nature and head of the Jade Magistrates (office was/is defunct at this time but was revived later in the setting) Ruby Champion - assistant to the Emerald Champion and responsible for administration of the Emerald magistrates.  It was normally bestowed on a samurai who showed a deep understanding of Bushido and Imperial Law Topaz Champion - Winner of the tournament at the most prestigious Gempukku event in the empire.  Winning the event carried great prestige and usually opened the door to future opportunities including high level appointments Later in the setting they added a number of additional champions including
    Pearl Champion who was responsible for maintaining relations with the Naga. Turquoise Champion who was the cultural leader of the empire Amethyst Champion a prominent courtier and "guardian" of the Crown of the Amethyst Champion (a gaijin artifact that granted great wealth and influence but would curse the owner if lost) Ivory Champion - Similar to the Emerald Champion only for the Second City colonies in the former Ivory Kingdom Onxy Champion - Jade Champion of the Spider Clan Obsidian Champion - Emerald Champion of the Spider Clan

    The position shouldn't have been active for a few hundred years but it does in theory exist if an Emperor wants to fill it.

    Not a fan of the constant use of the Lion as the Worf of L5R, when in doubt have them beat up on the Lion.  Probably some baggage from O5R where they tended to get the same treatment

    Coyote Walks got a reaction from ZebioLizard2 in Old VS New, or kind of: what would you like to change?   
    We tried other things to diversify our identity (with almost no help from the Story Team), but the other Clans screamed 'Pirates!', 'Borg!', and were the typical poster children for anti-courtesy we expect from the 'great' Clans.
     
    I'd like to see more stories showing off the different sides of the Mantis and their Allies.  It would be really nice for the 'Yoritomo overrunning everything' meme to die.

    I guess I would like the Crab to not enlist the aid of the Shadowlands. But if they do, not so overtly where it makes Kisada look like a total idiot. Let Yori do his thing if you must, but leave the majority of the clan out of it.

    Guns, lot of guns...joking, yet introduction of gunpowder could be an empire shattering event in itself. 
    Something more mundane than constant epics against world breaking events. Every two season.
    I hope they'll build up slowly to the day of thunder then stop.
    Then reboot it again

    I liked it. One of the main tensions in Rokugan is that their system is horribly oppressive but also driven by divine mandate of demonstrably real gods based on the demonstrably real facets of the spiritual world. However, Shinsei told Hantei things he did not know about the nature of existence when they met, and the Tao has been interpreted and missundertstod as time has passed. As such, while the gods are real, they are decidedly little gods, and even the great Kami are not omnipotent or omniscient. As for the priests and samurai, their knowledge of spiritual truths is at best very limited in scope. As such, the Perfect land might in fact be onto a real thing, there might in fact be a way for peasants to reach enlightenment outside of the system of a (also demonstrably) corrupt Empire.
    Of course, that does not mean that things won't go badly for them, or that they aren't antagonists. But I really enjoy they seem to be true believers, not a kolat trick. At least their cause is very sympathetic, the pesants and outcasts of Rokugan really could use some help and hope.
