    That’s why @Jedi samurai said “a simple way”. 
    A lot of people does not know what Taoism is, and even less know what Shinto is. 
    But everybody knows Tibetan monks (“You mean those guys around the Dalai Lama?”) and Shaolin Monks (David Carradine’s Kung Fu series, anyone?)

    I always thought a simple way to sum the difference's was

    Dragon Monks = Shaolin Monks 
    Phoenix Monks = Tibetan Monks

    I actually think the American version of 47 Ronin isn't a bad L5R-ish movie. It has monsters, magic beings and swords etc.... all tied around a Japanese setting.

    I always prefered the faking his own death and showing up as someone else idea rather then him taking over someone elses body (that seemed more Phoenix to me)

    I would be surprised if we don't see political duels. 

    I would assume once we see the whole set and start getting boosters that Dragon will have more military duels and crane more political ones.

    to booster or augment - absolutely. But it woudl kinda suck if every other clan has to play ronin just to make up for that lack. 

    No one would agree that 3-4-5 clans should need to rely on ronin or imperial characters for shugenja or courtiers or bushi......duelist shouldn't be any different.

    lol - so you agree with me there WILL be cards that target duelists (which would then lead to the issues I outlined if they are excusive to 2 clans), then dismiss that very logical assumption because........reasons......??

    But if only 2 clans can play events that create duels, then not much has changed.

    hopefully one lesson FFG learned from AEG is to give all clans access to dueling and not making it exclusively a Crane/Dragon thing.

    I would certainly say that the Crane and Dragon should have the same kind of leg up in dueling that Phoenix have with Spells and shugenja. 

    But like Spells and Shugenja, every clan should have access and their own.......flavor. Bayushi duelists cheat. Hida duelists don't be faster but absorb the first hit and kill their opponent after, Shiba are better when a shugenja is around etc..

    come on - you agree with me then said its too early to tell, and bringing it up is just complaining to complain. 

    Either you agree with my very logical assumption about the duelist trait (which you apparently do) which is what could lead to the pitfall's I'm saying I hope they are goign to avoid, or you don't (though you said you do so.....)

    The other option is you give the other clans something....comparative. Dueling became an issue in the CCG when two clans had access to powerful (arguable the most powerful at times) offensive/card removal in the game or honor gain, and the other 5-7 clans had no real answer for it. If ninja or bitter lies, and Deathseeker and Berserker and battle maiden etc.... while not working in the same way (ie - I doubt they'll use the betting wheel thing) if they are of comparative strength ..... then its a wash. 

    There is also the....flavor of dueling. It makes no sense from an in world perspective for only 2 clans to be any good at dueling. When you can boil any political issue or disagreement down to a duel, there wouldn't only be two clans that specialize in it. It makes no sense, the Crane and Dragon would be able to get anything they wanted politically while every other clan would be left out.

    but if you can't play the events cause they require a duelist (ie - if its like Shugenja and the spell we've seen) then nothing has changed. 

    You also have a limited amount of influence and you can only pick from 1 clan - if thats your goal, just play the original clan. 

    If they want to avoid that pitfall every clan needs to have some duelists and some unique ways to generating duels. I would agree that Dragon and Crane should be tied for the most - but the other 5 clans shouldn't have no options/access either. 

    Think of it like spells and shugenja - of course the Phoenix should have the most characters and the most in-clan spells - but every clan should have SOME access and SOME options.

    One thing regarding the Crane I haven't seen brought up. 

    I assume the Crane are going to want to gain a lot of honor - either the players will want to push an honor victory, or they'll want to use that honor to power their card draw and dueling. Given that honoring their characters is a big factor in Crane decks, would it not make sense for the Crane to buy more characters with little to no fate investment? If you have 3-4 guys instead of 1 or 2, are able to honor them all before the end of the turn, that nets you 4 honor. Rinse and Repeat.
