    Kaze no Shiro Story Archive Site moving

    Thank you for preserving the archives! Yes, a lot of us still use it.
  2. Okay, not here but here's the link to it. http://thedragonclan.net/index.php?topic=2385.0

    Dedicated Multiplayer Product

    They're running a multiplayer beta event at World's so it's unlikely the October announcement will be a dedicated beta product. This lends greater and greater credence to the narrative campaign hypothesis.

    Multiplayer Primer

    Nice break down. While I don't agree with everything here, I suspect it's more due to the way my local group has approached multiplayer (generally it's much less aggressive with all players in my area pass their first Conflict each round and making treaties to allow cooperating players to farm Rings off each other) so things tower units are effective and our games often go 4-5 Rounds. That said, I'm glad to read this in advance of World's to get a sense of other playstyles I'll need to be prepared for. In particular I want to make an Imperial Librarian/Master Alchemist/Seeker of Enlightenment deck to bump everyone's Glory, Dishonor everyone else, and keep the Fate safely on my own Fire Ring. Thoughts?

    Elemental Meta

    I gave up my fight to make Dragon/Crane work and switched to a variation of the Dragon/Crab deck that Mindsdesire came up with. It feels like I was playing the game on hard mode and flipped a switch to easy mode.

    How many Shugenjas are there in Rokugan?

    It's been deliberately left vague.

    I'd be interested.

    Wholeness of the World

    Oh, they should.

    Paying Fate to Rings

    That's what I thought but I wanted to check.
  11. Case 1: Cathy Crane, Dragon Drew, and Phoenix Phil are playing. Drew attacks Cathy with Fire and collects the Fire Ring, putting it one his Public Forum. Then Phil attacks Cathy with Fire and puts his Fire Ring on his Manicured Garden. Cathy passes (defending's taken a lot out of her). Then Drew attacks Phil's Manicured Garden with Water and breaks it. Since Drew already has a claimed Fire Ring, Phil's Fire Ring would return to his unclaimed pool. Phil plays Wholeness of the World. What happens? By strict ruling, Phil would keep the Fire Ring on his unbroken province forever, since no one can break it again and the Ring only goes back to pool when the Province breaks, not when the province is in a broken state. Case 2: Phil has claimed the Fire Ring. He plays Know the World to switch the Fire Ring and the Water Ring. When the Fire Ring would return to his unclaimed pool he plays Wholeness of the World. Since KtW says "switch" rather than "return then take" returning the Fire Ring is not a cost but an effect. Does Phil now have both Rings?

    Paying Fate to Rings

    Follow up question: can Jade Masterpiece move fate off of Rings in my opponents' unclaimed pools? If so, can I move it to Rings in my unclaimed pool?

    Paying Fate to Rings

    Okay, that all makes sense. Thanks! So to be clear: Togashi Initaite, Kitsuki Investigator, and Written in the Stars only spend Fate to my Rings but then allow me to recoup that Fate at my leisure. Written in the Stars only takes Fate off my own Rings so there's no point to using that effect. Seeker of Enlightenment only checks for Fate on my Rings but I can leave it there for longer since I can retrieve it at my leisure. Enlightened Warrior can trigger when any other player attacks and chooses one of their Rings with Fate (seems likely at some point). Stone of Sorrows screws over all the other players. Correct?

    Paying Fate to Rings

    Yep, read that a half-dozen times and I'm still not sure how it applies here.
  15. When a card requires you to pay a Fate to a Ring (i.e. Togashi Initiate, Kitsuki Investigator) can you choose one of your own Rings? This seems much more powerful now as you can guarantee that you'll recoup your own Fate later. When Written in the Stars goes off does it add Fate to all players' unclaimed Rings without Fate / remove a Fate all players' unclaimed Rings? This seems much more powerful now as not only are there a lot more Rings to add Fate to but the game adds Fate to them at a much slower rate.
