  1. Ichiro is likely still Toshimoko's son as Ichiro is identified as Barahime's nephew, but Barahime seems to be Yoshi's wife now.
  2. New Short Story Roar of the Lioness This could set up some interesting alliances in the future.
  3. Shinobi/Ninja are far less strange and a bit more common in this continuity. Pretty much every clan has some members who are of the profession.
  4. My bet is each year will see two Q1 and Q2 source books the size of Shadowlands and CoS and a neutral Q4 setting book similar to EE and PoW. This would give them a stable release pattern until 2022.
  5. Shahai would likely have still been a hostage if meishodo had been banned.
  6. Not going to happen due to FFG not owning the Burning Sands. AEG didn't sell that part of the IP when FFG bought L5R.
  7. That adventure makes me suspect that this book was intended to be announced at Gencon during the Inflight but was cut to make time for the Marvel miniatures game.
  8. Either path can lead to good drama. If she ended up sacrificing her own life to extend his (just like her Akodo Kaede card effect), it sets her up to die (possibly in childbirth) leaving Toturi to raise their child alone. If she ended up sacrificing their unborn child (and possibly her own fertility), drama will result in a culture focused on leaving descendants.
  9. Kaeda either shortened her own life to save Toturi or traded her unborn child for her husband.
  10. The new rules even cover those problems. Earth Stance doesn't do much when a single successful Crossing Cut will win you the duel if your opponent doesn't draw first blood on their attack.
  11. One other thing is that there are expanded rules for traditional Crane style Duels. There are new rules to prevent pretty much every complained about strategy.
  12. The adventure Winter's Embrace introduces a few new factors to this mess. The biggest is:
  13. Current Crane and Crab have 7 schools and everyone else has 6. If Crab and Crane are skipped 1 time each all the Great Clans might end up with 11 schools. If instead each clan gets 1 school in the 5 other books with the central clan getting 2 we will end up with 12 schools each for the great clans. Shiba Artist is a psuedo-Courtier School and Togashi Chronicler is built around the Monk advisor achetype. Unicorn will likely get new courtiers in the future but they will likely not be courtiers focused on the courts.
