  1. Currently listening to it, so far I’m enjoying it. 👍

    Castle Assault

    Now this changes everything. They can seize the moment due the occupants being drunk lay a siege. Can the players possible capture the Ronin leader and have some leverage on their negotiations?

    Castle Assault

    Sounds like a good campaign. I think I’ll go with try to with negotiate with the Ronin first and give them the opportunity to join you if they’re honorable and righteous if not I’ll try to block all exits and lay down the siege. As a newly formed Minor Clan you don’t have too many resources available I’ll try to minimize my damages so I don’t have to spend too much of my limited koku rebuilding.

    I think the keywords here are: “they are set to govern”. Without knowing what Clan are they playing I will say go with the options that will cause less damages to the structure, because then I have to go back to the Daimyo to ask for more koku to repair or rebuilt something that not only I could prevent, money that could be used for something else: improving the quality of life of the province, improving defenses, a celebration to improve the morale of the local residents and improve the image of your Daimyo, etc... So my first option will be how the peasants feel about the Ronin leadership. If they govern with justice and fairness, I’ll try to negotiate their surrender with an opportunity to become low level retainers and then assign them an appropriate appointment (obviously under the scrutiny of the players). If they were ruthless and abusive I will lead a siege around the keep, wait until surrender and take them down.
  5. Just in case I have nothing to do with the zine other than promote it here in case of one of you guys decide to participate. I follow closely @Avatar111‘s House rules (and planning to implement some of his updates), and have enjoyed the Fan Stories and the Hombrew section. Now being said that, I believe that there’s a lot of talent and potential here that could make it to the zine.
  6. From Twitter There is a new L5R fanzine in town: City of Remembrance “City of Remembrance” is a zine about Legends of the Five Rings and the creative works it inspired. Over twenty years these games have captured the imagination of many people around the world; however, despite its success depending on the support of people of different cultures and backgrounds, the voices that are heard from the fandom tend to be very homogeneous. 2018 saw L5R return in a way that makes so many of us, previously excluded and silenced, feel included and vindicated; 2019 is looking even better. With our small collaboration we aim to celebrate the many L5R-inspired creators out there and showcase contributions that offer a glimpse of what Rokugan meant to so many of us - and what we look forward to see in the future. Contributions: We are looking for collaborators willing to contribute the following works: Graphic Art - (Illustration, Sequential Art, 4komas, etc) Prose (fiction, immersion tools, tabletop roleplaying set-pieces) Game Design (adventure outlines, campaign starters, new rules, character options, etc) If you’re interested follow the link above.
  7. Shadow of the Cabal started their new campaign, Song of the Crane using 5E. In addition to their episode 1, they have an episode 0 where they give a basic description of the setting and an episode 0.5 where they go through the 20 questions process. You should check it out.

    Distinctions questions

    I agree with you regarding some Distinctions that can be added later, maybe in the future they’ll call the character in and say, your great uncle Toshio died childless and designated you as his heir, congratulations you’re a member of the Kuge now.

    Distinctions questions

    Yeah, that’s what I figured out, thanks guys. I decided to drop the lineage advantage, Kuge Lineage, and keep the spiritual ones. They’re more relevant to the character. Table 7-2 p. 302 last column shows virtues/flaws and at high honor you receive virtue advantages. Table 7-3 p. 304 last column shows game/ infamy and at high glory you get fame advantages... Or at least that’s what I interpreted.

    Distinctions questions

    Hi guys I have read the Advantages section and have a question: The book mentions that you can get fame and virtue distinctions after character creation. Is there a way to acquire Spiritual Distinctions later on?

    Shuji and Strife (and Duels)

    And to a lesser extent the Miya Herald.
  12. Yay. Just started listening to it.
  13. I concur. Not only their physical descriptions, but but also answers to key questions like their ninjō, giri, distinctions, passions, adversities, anxieties, and little snippets of who they are. Like: I wear my nose bridge scar as a badge of honor for defeating the bandit leader, or after woking up after being unconscious for almost a day in the battlefield among corpses I now have these traumatic episodes where I see my comrades dying... I think this will make us more familiar with them and also help new players with their character creations.

    Artbook from L5R

    First thanks for sharing. Second I like them. I think they capture the essence of their character and their Clan. 👍
