  1. The behavior reminds me of the 4th edition Buruburu https://l5r.fandom.com/wiki/Buruburu. However the manual doesn’t give a physical description, so it might not be. There are several oni which could also fit.
  2. I must say I loved Aramoro's inner monologue during the assassination attempt, going on about how he is so superior to Toturi. Meanwhile I was like ‘He literally beat you with his eyes closed. I doesn’t get much more obvious than that’. Definitely hoping for a tragic downfall brought on by his arrogance and all that good stuff (so basically the same thing I’m hoping for Yoshi).
  3. But that could have been done without trying to hide the edict. Kachiko's actions further the Scorpion's power as well as her own (like the emerald champion being a member of the clan). But I think hiding the edict might be an exception, where she chooses a more risky option because it benefits her more. Under normal circumstances, the edict is a major boon to the Scorpion. They replace an heir who's had a Crane as his closest teacher, for one that will have their current champion as his most important mentor for quite a few years, and has their future champion as his closest friend. Not to mention Shoju will be pretty much running the empire for some time. However, with the murder of Jodan at Sotorii's hands, the control Kachiko would personally have over him would be much greater, and I believe that is a significant part of why she acted the way she did.
  4. I think as of this fiction Kakita Yoshi has singlehandedly done more to destroy the Empire than the last five years of shadowlands attacks combined. Oh, how I love that man .
  5. The final story of the inheritance cycle has been published. https://www.fantasyflightgames.com/en/news/2019/9/3/black-and-white/ We finally know Shoju's reaction to this mess. Only he doesn't know about the assassination attempt against Toturi. Or that Daisetsu has the help of a shujenja and a powerful Ise zumi in his escape, and they probably won't be easy to find. I really want to know what happens at next days court.
  6. I think the key is how similar the brothers seem in their anger. We don't have Daisetsu's perspective, but considering how disoriented he seemed when Shahai snapped him out of it he probably also blacked out and while blacked out both went for letal force. Shahai also says Daisetsu reminded her of Sotorii in his callousness. It could just be a family resemblance, but if we consider the theory of something controlling Sotorii those similarities could have another meaning.
  7. The new info about the princes' mother is particularly interesting considering her fate in the old lore. It seems like something weird happened at Daisetsu's birth this time too, but we don't know if it was something supernatural or not.
  8. I don’t think you can use Void Maho. The Void doesn’t have any kami, because it’s... well, the Void; so it shouldn’t have any kansen either.
  9. There is the option to purchase the 2018 world champion deck, which only works if you want to play Crane. Beware that the restricted list and elemental roles have changed since the event, so the deck itself is no longer tournament legal. To fix that you will need other products, but it will be cheaper than the 3 core sets. However, since the meta changes, you might not be able to make a tier 1 deck, and your cardpool will be less flexible (and limited to Crane). I have found part of the appeal of the LCG format is having access to all the printed cards, and you wouldn’t get that with this method, so I’m not sure I recommend it, but it is an option. P.S. The first two “cycles” will rotate once the fifth is stated, but we just started the third one, and the clan specific expansions are legal until a newer version is released, so it will be a while till you have to worry about legality.
  10. I meant to say the erratas have been implemented before seeing whether restricting the cards could solve the problem. I find using the RL, if viable, would have been a more aesthetically pleasing solution. I assume the erratas will have a positive effect, since this cards were often described as a NPE, and it is possible that they found simply restricting them wouldn't be effective.
  11. I think some of the errata might have been a bit too hasty. Neither Restoration of Balance nor City of the Open Hand were on the restricted list, which is something that they could have tried to limit their power. To put an example, I think Restoration of Balance and Niten Master work well together, because both create a sort of “card advantage”. But if both were on the RL and you played Niten Master your opponent would have access to their entire hand to fight it, or if you played RoB, then you wouldn’t be able to use a character that stands so efficiently to get extra value off your attachments. Tadaka is a bit tougher decision, and they already tried putting it in the RL. His effect is one I don’t see ever becoming bad, though maybe it would become less effective as the card pool grows. As such every Phoenix card that works well with Tadaka would be a contender for the RL, even if it is balanced in every other way. On the other hand, quite happy with the inclusion of Steward of Law in the RL. I feel like the little bugger was a bit of an auto-include, though not having a cheap character with annoying combos available will definitely hurt.
  12. The action of Kyuden Ikoma seems good to me. The best comparison I can draw is the Crane’s Fū Sui Disciple, which does sometimes get you extra utility from your low cost characters by launching solo attacks that punish your opponent for stopping them. Of course, Kyuden Ikoma doesn’t require you to pat for a character, is more consistently on and a targeted bow is more powerful than Disciples’ effect. On a similar note Embrace Death could be a real pain, since it will at least create a small fate advantage and you’ll always have to be weary of it when defending. Of course, you could instead say the developers know Lion is so weak they figured them losing would be an easy condition to fulfill 😏.
  13. Because of how Rokugan works isn't it possible for no one to believe it but still have to play along or risk losing face? You can't exactly call the Imperial Advisor a liar in public, especially if she is a member of the most politically influential Clan.
  14. https://www.fantasyflightgames.com/en/news/2019/4/17/words-of-steel/ So no mythical creature as the 6 date card. It is also the first one to have glory greater than 0
