    Hey everyone! I'm looking into printing a couple Crane decks for play with friends tomorrow, do you have any tips or tricks as to how this is best done?

    What programs do you use? How wide do you set the margins?

    Your advice is appreciated!

    Sake House Brawl guys have a proxy collection on their page in the links. Not sure it's updated with yesterday's batch yet, should be soon though.


    If you copy paste the cards into word, and scale their image to 3.5" that's a pretty decent fit. The other dimension should auto size to follow the 3.5".

    No top. If they're sleeved, what difference does it make? It doesn't transport, but you'll only need a handful of deck boxes for your current builds.

    Not sure why you are being so shirty about it :huh:

    Makes quite a big difference to me, i wanna be able to bring my entire collection with me to wherever I'm playing so I can tinker with ideas. I like something fairly sturdy and not made out of the really bad cardboard pulp that ffg make their boxes with.  The whole quality of the box is cheap, and I don't complain that I need to buy new boxes to make up for that, just I don't see any use at all for the boxes their lcg's come in beyond their use of getting it to me in the first place!

    I just go with those plain, white, multi-row boxes that pretty much any game store sells.  I'll use the first row or two for organizing cards, and the last row to hold tokens and constructed decks!  When the expansions start filling the box, just upgrade to the next size up and save the old box for a future card game!

    Im Too attached to the  big AEG card storage boxes. They are too good! :D


  4. The honor betting system.

    Player A is on 2 Honor

    Player B is on 6 Honor

    Player B  knows that Player A can't bet more than 1 honor of Player A loses the game. So Player B knows he can bet 3 honor because Player A won't want to bet enough to make him lose.

    Player A knows that Player B knows this, and can guess that Player B might bet 3 honor, so he can try and bet 3 also and get 3 cards for free.

    This is circular and can go around forever, so betting honor when you are on low or high honor yourself will never be a straight forward decision!

    I think I may have confused myself, but you catch my drift :D

    I tought that they said in the AMA that core and deluxes are evergreen? I had the same thoughts as you. Maybe the single out specific cards for story results or ignore them as if they were ninja, like if Shoju dies in the story but it is still playable.

    Ah right I didn't notice that. Not sure I'm a fan of that approach, but totally understand why they would do it.

    The Mongolian influence didn't really start until the Moto returned, though - or am I remembering that incorrectly? I know the Unicorn had "less Rokugani" names from the outset, but there was a world of difference between Hanari, Yokatsu, Kamoko, Tadaji, etc. to the great Chagatai, Shem-Zhe, Lixue, Kadu-Kai, Vordu names of the post-Moto return.

    They've always had more gaijin-ish names, but Altansarnai might mean that they're starting off with the more "post-Moto" names. Which would be neat.

    Funny I just made a post about this elsewhere!

    First one I found was Moto Yesugai . I guess Moto Gaheris could've also been a nod in that it sounds a bit like Genghis.

    I think the Unicorn names in general are broken into three sections. Gaijin/Mongolian - eg Chagatai, Korean-ish - eg Hyo-Yeon and Rokugani - eg Shigeru.

    I really dislike the new Unicorn champions name. Way too much of a mouthful for me and sounds a little like a drunk english person ordering a sandwhich :P ! Does it even mean anything at all?

    Some people would also have a backup clan, where if they didn't like the current metagame for their favorite clan they would switch to their second favorite.

    From what I could tell, pure Spikes were rare. The game's emphasis on lore and roleplaying appealed a lot to Johnnies, and I think most players had at least a little Johnny in them.

    I'm one of those people!

    I have always had two clans. Scorpion is what I started with and I just love their flavour and how they play, courtly intrigue and ninjas are cool too!

    Unicorn became an interest when I acquired an unhealthy fascination with Genghis Khan in my teens and started noticing Unicorn personalities linked to Genghis like Moto Yesugai  and then later Moto Kubulai ,Moto Ogedai , Moto Taidjut , and last but not least the main man Moto Chagatai.
