    Legend of the Five Rings Genesys Conversion

    @Swordbreaker I am not an old fan of L5R, and whatever your version of it is, I would never hold it against you, even if you decide to "steal" any of my ideas. In fact, if you "steal" some of my ideas, i would see it as a point of pride.

    I have no idea whether this project is still alive, but I hope within the next month or two to post my own version of n L5R conversion, that draws some inspiration from this work.

    The link doesn't seem to work
  5. If you invest in Jiujitsu, and raise your Strength, you can take the Ikoma Scrapper path at rank 4, to make your opponents fear you, and to be able to attack as a Simple action unarmed.

    Skills weirdness in Genesys

    In the conversion am doing for L5R, I mashed Cool and Discipline together. Initaitive is only Vigilance. I separated Mechanics into Craft and Engineering, and I added Games, Arts, Perform, and Tea Ceremony, and am gonna give each of them their own unique flavor and place.

    A Question of Talent (Tree)

    I am working on my own conversion of L5R to Genesys, and I feel like the setting's mood and history works well for Talent Trees rather than the free-for-all like in basic Genesys. However, while I am currently working on creating general Specializations witht heir Talent Trees, I started thinking about making the Clan Schools. I can see several options: 1. Each School get's it's own complete Talent Tree. 2. Each School only gets a few Talents that are unique to them, and reinforce their theme, and they need to get a general Specialization. 3. Each shcool gets half the normal Talent Tree, and each such Talent Tree is connected to a specific general Specialization. 4. Each School gets a bigger Talent Tree than normal, to accomodate their themes better. The problems I see are mainly where some Schools do no correlate directly to any of the general Specializations I have. This mainly happens with the Shugenja and Monk Schools.

    Simple initiative tracker web app for Genesys

    Very nice tool, though not of much use tome on my table-top game, could be useful to a play-by-post game i might be running.

    Scion style setting

    Not yet to the general public. Those who backed iit on Kickstarter have the rules already, just not with any errata added, or in the spiffy look.

    Scion style setting

    Interesting idea. If I were to pursue this, I would say that each Purview and PSP should be either a Talent Tree or built like a Force Power. If you go with the Force Power build, they I would definitely have the Force die represent your Legend. And if you go with a Talent Tree, then I would have each Talent Tree linked to a particular Skill, that when you use our Purview, you roll dice according to that Skill, and have it act like a magic skill from the Genesys Core.

    I know it's a matter of taste, and the fact that it will need a ton of work, but I do feel as if the Dojos of L5R require a more structured Talent purchase, like that found in Star Wars, with each school a specialization, and you have a Talent Tree for each. Maybe with a bunch of more universal Talent Trees to represent general archtypes that any Clan might have, even if they do not a dedicated Dojo for it. (So, you can be a Kakita Duelist, or you can be a general Duelist, and you can be a Shiba Yojimbo, or just a regular Yojimbo.) I am trying to do this myself, but I do like some of the things you've done, and am using them, either as a base to build/adjust, or wholecloth.

    Water Shugenja technique - help wanted

    Suigyū Shugenja (OX Clan) This new Shugenja family within the Ox clan has arisen out of a marriage between a Morito Ifran, an Ox clan Bushi, and Isawa Nuri, a Phoenix Clan Shugenja. Their union gave rise to a new Shugenja family. Still pacifistic, Nuri started teaching her ways to their kids, and to those who decided to join their nascent family, but while it mollified their inclinations, it didn’t turn them pacifistic. Instead, they share a bond with their Bushi, and have found a way to lend their strength to them. Benefit: +1 Strength Skills: Battle, Calligraphy, Defense, Hunting, Meditation, Spellcraft, any one High or Bugei skill Honor: 3.5 Outfit: Robes, Wakizashi, Knife, Scroll Satchel, Traveling Pack, 2 koku Affinity / Deficiency: Water / Fire Spells: Sense, Commune, Summon, 3 Water, 2 Earth, and 1 Air Technique: Lend the Ox’s Strength - The Suigyū Shugenja learns to lend some of his own Strength to another. By spending a Void point, and touching another, the Suigyū Shugenja can grant that person 1 point of Strength per School Rank he possesses. This is reduced from the Shugenja’s own Strength score, to a minimum of 1 Strength, for all intents and purposes, except for casting Water spells.
  15. Hello fellow forumites, In a game I am running, one of the players is a member of the Ox Clan, and had married a Isawa Shugenja. That, along with a Dependant, that proved to be a water Shugenja, has caused him to be elevated to a Daimyo of a new Family within the Ox. One that will hopefully see the rise of Shugenja within the Clan. I am a bit stumped as to what technique might be developed. Or more to the point, hot to represent it mechanically. I was thinking about a technique that allows them to either be better at strength-increasing spells, or mabe the ability to spend a Void point to give someone else some of their Strenth. Any ideas, whether to represent this mechanicall, or for other possible techs, would be very welcome.
