  1. That image in from when Sotorii cut a peasant from falling in front of him.
  2. We used to play like that, until we took a Tadaka to the Restricted List.
  3. I guess it’s the Miya Library, which is limit one per deck
  4. Right now, Paragon is pretty bad. I mean, it’s “during a conflict in which this character is participating alone”. Not “only participant on your side”. Which means your opponent has to not declare any participant for the ability to work. Hopefully, that’s not how the card is intended to work and they’ll issue an errata.
  5. I was thinking that we just got our new Ronin Challenge for Worlds this year...
  6. It's a 5. Air is 1, Water is 3, Void is 4.
  7. Prayers to Ebisu seems great to stop that honor victory at the last moment. Not that we’re seeing a lot of them now... And we have the card designed by Samuel Benies, the 2017 World Champion. Which is kinda... meh? I’m not convinced by any of the Phoenix cards. Shinjo Ambusher is great, specially against the “trigger if broken” provinces.
  8. Last cards for CotE

    In this point, I think you’re twisting Shizue’s thoughts to fit your views. Her exact thoughts were: ”He had been a gruff and distant father figure, as so many parents were, but he had never been unkind to her.” Saying that your father is gruff and distant is certainly not “seeing him positively” (nor negatively, I’ll give you that). And the fact that she thinks that the majority of fathers are “gruff and distant” (which is not true, even in Rokugan) I think speaks volume of how weird* Satsume’s relationship with their son and daughters was to make her think that was the norm. And in “The stories we tell” fiction, which you quoted, there’s no statement of Shizue not blaming Satsume for Teinko’s death, as you happily stated. In fact, the whole story revolves around her having doubts about which version of Satsume she must believe, Hotaru’s or Kuwanan’s. So I would put her on the middle ground here. *this isn’t the word that I wanted to use, but I’m incapable of finding a better one to convey my thoughts. My lack of English knowledge foils me again.

    Would be funny if the “friend and peer” was actually Shoju. He’s pushing the regency to have Daisetsu kidnapped later and keep a eternal regency of the Scorpion.

    Are we really gonna ignore that Sotorii killed a peasant just for falling in his way??!! And that he was basically a child when he did it??!!

    So I re-read the adventure and here are some highlights: BEWARE! SPOILERS FOR "IN THE CASTLE OF THE EMERALD CHAMPION" Everybody hated Satsume. Not important for this discussion, but just so we all know he was a jerk (to the dismay of Manchu) This is also interesting. Satsume was either getting old or developing some serious illness. This was not the effect of the poison that killed him, as it takes only a few hours to kill the victim. A pick from Sumiko's NPC stat block. Relevant as it can give some insight about how she'll react to THE Imperial Decree. These are all the papers and correspondence that back ups that Satsume was in contact with somebody from the Kolat, and that he was killed for "betraying" them. If Satsume knew that this friend was Kolat or not is unsure. But Satsume's thoughts regarding the Hantei Dynasty were blasphemous, that's for sure. Also, here's where I read that opinion on the heirs. This is in the background of the assassin. I suppose the heir mentioned is Sotorii? Either that, or this assassin has the same age as the emperor! And given that he's a shinobi and being able to fight with 4 Pcs at the same time, I'd rule out that option. So Sotorii killed a peasant some years ago, it seems. This guy is competing with Joffrey for "Most hated heir in fantasy fiction". Also, more of Satsume's opinions. These are two of the options given to the players to wrap up the adventure (they can also lie and say it was natural causes), and serve as a summary of shorts about the PCs findings. Make of all this what you want.

    They tried to recruit him (and succeeded to a point), but then he found out “another way to save the Empire”, so the Kolat killed him because he knew some of their members and secrets, IIRC
