    YasukiKaito reacted to EdgeOfDreams in Developing a quick summary of each clan   
    Those are very useful short words to add to the theme statements. I forgot about Crab sacrificing their own characters, but it totally makes sense in their theme. Thanks!

    Meaning that they are thinking about pursuing the Scorpion Clan Coup.  Just my 2 zeni though!

    Overwhelming display of power, like wiping out the Snake, or standing between two armies, or repelling a Lion army with a handful of Shugenja.

    YasukiKaito reacted to clanmccracken in Sold out on the first day of GenCon   
    I'm not sure whether this is good news or not, but at the beginning of the first day of GenCon(today) the line to buy this game was 4 hours long. Then at about 11am they announced they had sold out of the game, and might be able to get more copies on Saturday. 
     
    I mean the the good news is the game is popular, or FFG underestimated how popular it would be. The bad news is it looks like I won't be getting the game any time soon.
     
    Good job FFG! Get more copies soon. Please

    YasukiKaito reacted to EdgeOfDreams in Developing a quick summary of each clan   
    I'm trying to write a quick overview of each clan's them and mechanics for my own understanding and reference and to show to other new players. I want to only have a few words or ideas for each entry. Here's what I've got so far, any additions/changes are welcome:
    Theme:
    Crab:  defenders of the wall, he who fights monsters, duty is more important than honor Crane: elegant and beautiful courtiers, duelists, use honor as a weapon to manipulate others Dragon: reculsive and eccentric, individualistic, seekers of enlightenment and prophecy Lion: biggest army in the realm, ancestor worship, honorable combat,  Phoenix: keepers of ancient knowledge and magic, pacifist unless provoked Scorpion: assassins, spies, liars, and manipulators, accept dishonor for the good of the empire Unicorn: clan who left the realm, changed, and returned as outsiders, best cavalry in the realm Mechanics:
    Crab:  military power, win defensive conflicts, exhaust the attacker's resources and counter-attack Crane: political power, high honor, duels Dragon: balanced politics and military, lots of attachments, buffing a single character to battle alone Lion: military power, high honor, swarm tactics Phoenix: spells and combos, deny conflict participation or results, high honor Scorpion: denial, control, debuffs, dishonor the enemy and themselves, can benefit from dishonor Unicorn: military power, mobility, aggressive, can change plans after the enemy has committed resources What do you think? What am I wrong about? What am I missing?

    YasukiKaito reacted to Eugene Earnshaw in Scorpion story question   
    I think the main thing relevant to the coup was the Koi pond section. It had 2 distinct messages that I see:
    1. Small changes have ripple effects that can change anything. We have already seen small changes, and these can cause ripples that mean nothing in the old timeline is guaranteed, coup included.
    2. The fish adjust to his finger. Changes are adjusted to and accommodated: certain events are likely to recur. This has broader implications than just the COup, but with reference to the coup, it indicates that something along similar lines could still happen. This is further supported by the discussion at the end: both Shoju and Kachiko I read as sincerely rejecting the possibility for the moment, but both are aware that it could perhaps be done.

    I prefer "I am doing this because I feel I need to save the empire." to "the bad sword made me do it!"
    One makes him a tragic hero.  The other makes him a manipulated fool.

    Yogo Junzo "Shoju, the Scorpion are too strong...  I just don't think I could live if I ever betrayed you.  Why don't you abandon all power, maybe throw your best armies at the Crab... without weapons... um... and I'll help by giving your name to an Oni.  That would be great, wouldn't it?  Then no one would think to challenge the Scorpion, because they're already ruined!!"
    Shoju "hm... an interesting though...  if I commit suicide to the Crab then Hotaru is certain to not show up and shoot me..."
    Kachiko "Shoju! Don't you dare!  I'm putting in a lot of work to learn how to wear these kimonos, don't you burn the house down just to play outside!"

    Colorado L5R group on Facebook covers the entire state. There's basically 4 groups: Northern Colorado, North Denver, South Denver, and Colorado Springs.
    South Denver will play at Collectormania in Parker. I know this definitively.
    Here's a list of stores that have hosted L5R in the past. These might be good places to dig for more info:
    Northern Colorado: Grand Slam (Loveland), The Nerd Store (Greeley)
    North Denver: The Wizard's Chest (Cherry Creek)
    Colorado Springs: The Yellow King
    Any questions, hit me up here or on Facebook. Let's make Colorado L5r great again!
