  1. HOTT was also updated around the same time, although it seem they only changed the movement rates of Shooters and Warbands. I don't know how deep the changes to DBA were. Lets try a stab at some clans in HOTT. Crab Clan: Stronghold: The Wall 1 Hero General (The Hida Daimyo) @4 AP. 1 Cleric (Kuni Witch-Hunter) @3 AP. 4 Blades (Crab Heavy Infantry) @2 AP 1 Artillery (Kaiu Siege Weapons) @3 AP. 1 Knight (Tsuru's Legion) @2 AP. 2 Shooters (Hiruma or Toritaka archers) @2 AP. Alternatives: Magician (Kuni Shugenja) @4 AP, Warband (Berserkers) @2 AP, Beast (Kuni Dogs) @2 AP.
  2. At one point I converted a few of the Clans to Warmaster using the Ancients version with Fantasy Magic. I was never quite happy how the Phoenix came out. Why DBA instead of HOTT?
  3. If the Unicorn-Lion conflict had been better layed out, the Unicorn had reason to get closer to the Asako from the get go. Mind you this would also need some depiction of Isawa/Asako tensions or rupture, but the Asako, as a political entity have been, almost, non-existent.
  4. I'd be wary of having the Phoenix flat out allying with the Unicorn against the Scorpion and the Lion. It's the Asako who are pissed at the Ikoma and who saw Altansarnai side with one of their own. There were good reasons for Yoshi appeoaching Togama. The Isawa still have a vested interest in the Lion despite Kaede's disappearance, and are blaming the Elemental Imbalance on the Unicorn. It remains to be seen how much control they have over the Asako considering that.
  5. 1- Mostly bleached, sometimes occurs naturally. 2- Already answered. It's in honour of Doji Hayaku, son of Doji and Kakita, brother to Yasurugi and Konishiko, the first Daidoji. 3- Crane custom. As the clans intermarry there may be a few instances of samurai in other clans with naturally occurring white hair. Also I would assume vitiligo occurs in Rokugan. Depending on where you feel your Unicorn may have travelled flat out blondes wouldn't be out of place with the Unicorn. The other non standard hair that occurs in Rokugan is red and red-brown that tend to appear among the Kitsu and Matsu. 4- Your Rokugan, you decide. Personally I like to have sumptuary laws and would treat a commoner doing that as acting above their class, with all the possible consequences that may incur being on the table.
  6. I honestly wasn't expecting Kachiko to fully come out to anyone.Particularly coming clean about Toturi.
  7. That's based on the old timeline that starte sooner in the RPG (3-5 years dpending on the book) Specifically this is a nod to Ree Soesbee's novella in Kyuden Seppun.
  8. Kakita vs Matsu. Matsu is being her usual congenial self until Kakita schools her and behaves as she was behaving. Matsu paramount of self-awareness and humility she was, gets pissy Kakita didn't trat her the way she deserved in his victory, thus kicking a thousand year long blood feud. Kakita and Hojatsu two duels. The first neither struck knowing both would die. The second, Kakita cut down Hojatsu, and then mortally wounded fell upon Hojatsu's blade so that the sword could fullfil it's duty towards her master.
  9. That's perfectly in keeping with Ujiaki's character from the old lore.
  10. I'm disappointed, but the system did not manage to grab me even if I loved some of the concepts. It's one of those cases where IMO the whole was less than the sum of it's parts. I think L5R would have benefited from something simpler, faster and more friendly towards online play, and maybe streaming... I still bought all the books because the story reboot has been wonderful. Well, except Sins of Regret that doesn't seem to be available anywhere...
  11. Earthquake Fish Bay has and underwater volcano, and IIRC Lookout Mountain was originally also a Volcano, before being retconned. There is also Amaterasu's Furnace in the Shadowlands so it seems likely there could have been vulcanic activity in Crab Lands.
  12. Senzai can also mean Perpetuity and Millenium or similar meanings. I really liked that the Ize Zumo having a closer link to their Atman beome more textual. It was kind of implied in the old lore but it«s much more open here.
