    Favorite Fictions

    1000% agree! Hopefully he gets to do another one for this Halloween. Also, his Sins of the Father fictions are most excellent.
  3. Can't say much about the new L5R RPG since I haven't played it. However, the older editions (4th though 1st) had a very lethal combat system (feature not a bug). I don't know if new L5R RPG retains that as a feature. P.S. If you want a book that is a mix between D&D 5th and the old Oriental Adventures from 3.0, check out Heroes of the Oriental for D&D 5th on the DMsGuild https://www.dmsguild.com/product/187283/Heroes-of-the-Orient-Players-and-DMs-Companion
  4. Pretty insightful interview. As much as I like 4th Edition, I agree that I wish there was more mechanics for courtiers, courts and intrigues. I also agree that yes, Its very challenging to get new people into L5R b/c of the setting and themes. Most of the people I introduce to L5R just found the setting and themes to intimidating and uncomfortable unlike the general mechanics. I did found it interesting that they compare Unmasking, Strife and Compromise as mental "wounds" to how getting an injury to the body is physical "wound" That surprised me honestly. Just some of my first reactions.

    Core book Schools

    I do admit that I enjoy the more flavorful titles of the schools now from the beta Doji Diplomat instead of Doji Courtier, for example. Look forward to the other flavorful names. I wonder if this was a suggestion from Kinzen? I only say that b/c I remember many years back on the AEG forums where she express her thoughts on the plain titles used for Clan schools. She also took part in the Alpha for this game too.

    Winter Court

    Following and reading through most of the events/threads at Winter Court 4 was amazing. It is unknown if FFG will have that level of mass interactivity.

    Roll & Keep

    Honestly, you have a pretty excellent point there. Its always nice to use familiar language to ease folks into something new IMO. Calling it Raise/Raises instead of Opportunities is a small but nice fix.

    Roll & Keep

    Indeed. Even if 5R5 turns out to be not my cup of tea, I'll still post any relevant news/articles/etc I might see since there are folks that really enjoy the new edition from what I can tell.

    Roll & Keep

    Maybe the new Roll & Keep system will make a believer out of me. I'm still willing to try it but I am going in with extreme low expectations.
  12. Really hope they make a "Classic" sub-forums for those that stick with the older editions then the new one.

    Beginner Game

    The new fiction, Tiger Stalks His Prey, sets up some pretty dramatic events. After this, FFG is going on a short break for fictions but check it out. https://images-cdn.fantasyflightgames.com/filer_public/67/6e/676e8279-4383-4e8e-a919-e87b932c4ef5/elemental_cycle_lion_webcompressed.pdf
