  1. So what kind of gaijin optiosn are there? Quamarits, Ujik and Ivory Kingdoms? As a big fan of gaijin, I'm quite curious about the schools and regions.
  2. Huh, both of those seem pretty fun! It does seem interesting that these are not the clan novellas, but that just means more fiction for me! Just finished rereading the Scorp novella and now rereading the Unicorn one, until Eternal Knot is available on Kindle.
  3. The Mystic doesn't feel like Alchemist to me. As I mulled on it, I found that Agasha have 3 themes/concepts in them: 1. Multi-elemental spells, playing with the elements - the Mystic does this 2. Alchemy: not present at the moment. The beta had similar rules for potions as they are for wards, and I liked those, but I think a specific alchemist school can also work 3. Yamabushi: the fighting priest, though this might be more Tamori than Agasha,I think with the FFG approach to schoosl this can also work. I mean, if the Doji bureocrat fit in, then I think a Yamabushi can also
  4. That...makes a lot of sense. Though, I am hoping to see more of Kisada and his kin too, so who knows what the story it'll be.
  5. I'm the other way around. I loved Legend of the Burning Sands stuff in previous Rokugan, so I'm quite happy in getting some gaijin stuff early. I also like how it is lumped together with Ronin to get some Rokugani information. That said, I am also looking forward to the next book focusing on Rokugan though. Here's hoping for a PHoenix book on magic with Ishiken, Yamabush/alchemists and Shadow magic! And a Centipede clan
  6. I mean...the really interesting things here if they want to make changes to Honor for gaijin is...a few shuji and other techs refer to it. So either those are banned for gaijin schools, or functionally the same, I guess?
  7. Oh, I'm not worrying, this is just a sort of thought exercise. Since we have a new direction on how schools are built, and just...rolled out, I figured let's give this a try. For example, for Ishiken, I wouldn't be surprised to find out that Void spells are a different technique entirely, and access would be gated via schools (Isawa Ishiken?) and perhaps some titles. Otherwise, it might be tricky to do. Shiba Illusionist might still be missing, for a certain value of missing.
  8. So, out of curiosity, I've been mulling over what kind of schools/concepts are there that are missing from this edition so far. Crab: I actually don't feel that there is any school that requires representation? Hida pragmatists could be represented by more unarmed kata really Crane: Kakita Artisans! We have sword smiths, but no Artisans Dragon: Agasha Alchemists and/or Yamabushi are what I feel are missing so far. Otherwise..probably everything we have? Lion: Matsu Beastmasters, and that's about it? Phoenix: Isawa Ishiken and Henshin. Titles for Tensai. Shiba Illusionist Scorpion: Shosuro Butei! Maybe Soshi magistrates. Unicorn: Utaku infantry? I did like some of the horse related schools, to raising and caring for animals.
  9. Tortoise are on the GM Screen with playable info, so we are probably not seeing them in another book. I'm just curious whether we might see some more Minor Clan DLC pop up?
  10. What Tonbo Karasu means, there are a ton of new possibilities for titles for unspeakable ancient horrors! Actually, I was wondering whether the Dragon book might have rules on Yobanjin...though both Badger and Dragonfly could be the extra minor faction in the book.
  11. I'm curious what "gaijin" will mean here. Mainly because I'm looking forward to some of the gaijin from the Unicorn novella, as those were really interesting, and they may show up more in the lore after the events in there, so here I am hoping for that to pop up.
  12. Gaijin "clans" more like nations, and schools and mechanical stuff. The Pony novella dropped a lot of nice hints, now I'm hoping for some fruition. Also, "unicorn" (aka rhino) stats in the game xD
  13. 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.
  14. I'm hoping the Unicorn centered RPG book will include info on gaijin and burning sands stuff
  15. 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
