  1. https://yards.ticketleap.com/real-ale-11/ Yards tickets will not be available this weekend, get them while you can! For Friday night, if attending, please respond with what deck you'd like to play.
  2. In addition to the loads of old cards to give out, we have Kotei swords as prizes for both old5r events and a Hunting Grounds Series kit for Doomtown. See everyone this weekend!
  3. While we didn't put new5r on the schedule (still open for adding it), I do have the participation Tanuki role cards, Argyle ring cards, and a Tanuki dial and mat to give out as prizes. There's also a sealed box of 20F and old boosters if folks want to break out Draft for the weekend. We'll kick things off on Friday; I'll post if we are at an alternate venue before going to Delta at 7p!
  4. Bayushi Jinn-Ja here once again to announce the continuation of Tanukifest and my last year as the host of the event (being serious this time; the Tanuki Society of Philadelphia is taking over for 2020). What is Tanukifest? From 2011-2013 it was a weekend of l5r events that took place in the greater Philadelphia area. Mostly official, these events combined Winter Court AEG events with 7th Dimension (store in Jenkintown) Level 10/15/20 events. In 2014-2015 we did Tanukifest: Reloaded as a single Doomtown event and 2016-2017 as the unofficial BigDeck and Modern World Championship to keep the spirit of l5r alive before the relaunch, and the event featured artists Drew Baker, Charles Urbach, and Bryon Mutt Wackwitz in attendance. It was moved to the spring so we can combine it with my favorite beer festival (Yards Real Ale Invitational). Mainly it's a celebratory weekend of flipping cardboard and general comradeship. In 2018 this event continued as a celebration of past L5R and added the new L5R LCG. Our region is proud to continue this tradition that has included Atlantic City and Phoenixville Koteis. What are the plans this year for 2019 and what are things looking like for 2020? Unfortunately we are in a position this year where we were not able to plan much in advance, as we are no longer able to get advance notice on when the Yards Real Ale Invitational Event will be. We have confirmed this year that it will be on April 14. Tickets can be purchased here: https://yards.ticketleap.com/real-ale-11/dates/Apr-14-2019_at_1200PM. This will be our Sunday event. The Tanuki Society of Philadelphia is a non-profit gaming organization that will be taking over for covering this event in the coming years. Due to personal commitments and taking over a larger role in my company, Pine Box Entertainment, I will no longer be able to devote the time to host this event each year. Prize support this year will include large numbers of cards from the old5r era as my collection and cards left from Dan Dineen, former Community Manager of AEG, will be distributed and available for players in attendance. We are looking into the possibility of seeking additional support and being able to include an event from new5r in the afternoon for those interested (we are seeking a tournament organizer; please respond in the Facebook event if interested). Full Schedule is as follows (what is currently being planned:) Friday, April 12 @7pm: Legacy Format This is a custom format as an old Legend of the Five Rings event with premade decks. Please reply with the deck you would like to play so we can make one available. The options are: Crab Kyuden Hida-Military Fat Followers and Commanders with Movement.
