  1. I mean, as far as I understand Yobanjin, they are the people who did not bow to the kami, and refused to take part in the Empire. From that PoV, expanding into Yobanjin lands would be more like fulfilling the original vision of the kami, it could be argued.
  2. I'm hoping the Unicorn centered RPG book will include info on gaijin and burning sands stuff
  3. Not sure how I feel about Doji Bureocrat...seems similarly oddly specific/odd as the Kakita swordsmith..the idea is nice, but not sure it warrants a whole school. Also, the lack of Kakita Artisan is not making me happy
  4. Besides all the cultural stuff, I also really enjoyed Shono as a PoV...when he decided to do things, he DID them, and did them well. Also looking forward to whatever will be the continuation here.
  5. The Burning Sands novella has different gaijin peeps, as the Burning Sands is an actually different IP, and wasn't bought. As a fan of the old LBS stuff....I like what they've done in the novella. I'm hoping that for whatever Unicorn sourcebook comes out, instead of a Minor clan we'll get some rules for creating gaijin players.
  6. Just curious what'll be the difference between deathdealer and infiltrator, as both seem to be on the edge of "ninja AND bushi" So looking forward to that.
  7. On the other hand...sending him to the capital might lead to more shenanigans? I can see either work, to be honest.
  8. For minors, we musn't forget that we may have similar DLC like the Mantis. For Unicorn, I wouldn't be surprised if instead of a minor clan, we'd have gaijin character creation? If not, I'd be quite ok with an LBS supplement! For Dragon, I think they'd have religion as their focus. General shintoist stuff, the Perfect Land Sect, AND the yobanjin are in some ways religious dissenters. Badger would make sense in that case. A collected book on minor clans might also work, looking at their history, their current status, perhaps an up and coming Minor clan alliance?
  9. Actually, what's with FFG and eyes? I'm kinda surprised Yojiro got out with both of his xD I mean...despite cries of Heresy, what is the Rokugani stance on religion? The issue with the Perfect Land is that they consider it a heretical sect of their own religion...not sure what they think of Qamarist stuff. Then again, I think there is a difference between kami magic and djinn, so I wonder what she'll think.
  10. Another thing I like a lot....Shono is a badass. Like, he is sad, and grieving and confused...but when he fights? He fights. He's a great rider, archer and swordsman, can wrestle, and picks up quickly the quirks of the djinn. I appreciate him kicking asses and taking names.
  11. I am biased towards this, as an LBS fan. I like the "conflict" between Unicorn and the Caliph: the Unicorn claim the people via blood relation (Rokugani custom) while the Caliph claims via religion. And Shono outplaying the djinn was hilarious, even if the djinn was helping. I hope to see him show up in the future. I'm just worried we won't be seeing any further updates on this for a while
  12. I was liking Shono from his first story....yes, he is mopey here, but for an understandable reason. But man....he needs to let his inner sarcasm out moar. MOAR! Shono believes in Chagatai who believes in Shono! I think they really managed to hit the right tone for Shono, being a hybrid of Rokugan and everything else.
  13. Yeah, FFG didn't get LBS rights, for Medinaat etc..., so they are making up some of it. Ivory Kingdoms is still in, I think but rest is not. I've generally liking the novellas, but was really looking forward to this one. I love LBS, due to a GM and some awesome games, so very curious what FFG will be doing with it.
  14. I am still in favor of Toturi kicking Aramoro's ***. Maybe he will go ino hiding....and Yojiro oculd be his inside agent. Or he could stand up, and perhaps tries to instigate himself to Sotorii? Honestly, Sotorii and Toturi are quite similar in circumstances, so I want to see them interact. And man....I find Sotorii so tragic. Going to a temple with my dad? Yay, adventure! I finally get to spend time with my dad! Wait, he's been telling me I'm crown prince and now I'm not?! Like...he has severe issues in terms of self-control, but I still think that's cause of lazy parenting and tutoring.
  15. To be honest....I am looking forward to some Toturi - Sotorii interactions. I mean, Toturi was in the exact same position, and only the death of his brother changed that. Which might be a bad example, but I wonder whether Sotorii might actually listen to Toturi. I think the two would make an interesting pair. And then we could have the clans scrambling to see who can marry someone off to either Sotorii or Daiesetsu. Now, back to the topic at hand.... I think it would be interesting to have the Dragon/Mirumoto be one tip of the spear. It would be an unusual position of honor for them, alongside the Lion.
