  1. F***, I'd missed that. Ok, now I'm terribly confused.
  2. I'm not so sure; it could be that we're just seeing the top half of the Yogo mon (the Phoenix headdress) rather than the whole thing. And honestly, it looks more like the Yogo mon than it does any of the Phoenix families. Add the prominent Scorpion iconography, and I find it hard to believe that this isn't Yogo Junzo.
  3. That's a great quote; did you come up with that yourself?
  4. Well, Robert Denton III, I'd say you've created a succesful cliffhanger. Hats off.
  5. To be fair, Rokugan itself has been stuck in Medieval Stasis for nigh on a thousand years, so the rest of the world operating on the same trope, while a little silly, does make a certain degree of sense. Granted, if FFG decide to do a story where Pavarre invades, I'd be game.
  6. "If something is worth doing, then by Doji no Kami it's worth doing excellently!" Semi-related, but how are the Seppun who killed Hantei XVI viewed? I ask because I want to try and figure out if there's a point where a situation is so hopelessly bad, that what Daidoji-sama did wouldn't be seen as dishonorable?
  7. I feel like point the second is understating like there's no tomorrow. I'm not sure if it still holds true, but isn't what Daidoji-sama did one of the only recognized warcrimes in Rokugan? Yeah, this is going to get bad.
  8. Ok, so... organized ogres and goblins? Yeah, that ancient Chinese curse, "May you live in interesting times," seems to have struck the Crab with full force. I'd like some kind of Stronghold/s for building a Shadowlands deck. Like give the Crab Clan a Stronghold called "Big Stink*" that supports building a Shadowlands deck. * a Hiruma fortress that got overrun by Goblins who turned it into a city.
  9. Worf, unless there's a syndrome named after the place where ships are built. And yeah, this definitely feels like Yoshi finally proving he's not just some political appointee, although I'm a little disappointed that he couldn't recognize his nemesis (Kachiko) from her doppleganger without literally getting right up in the dopplegangers face.
  10. Loving the enthusiasm Hotaru, just one little issue - how are you going to "set this right" without one or both of you getting executed? Kachiko is guilty of covering up a regicide, attempting to tamper with the Imperial succession, and ordering the murder of the joint Emerald- and Lion Clan Champion. I'm not saying it can't be done, but you'll need to be luckier than the Seven Fortunes to pull it off.
  11. No kidding, the amount of armed conflict the setting saw during the AEG days should have been enough for the Empire to disintegrate several times over. I made a post about this previously, to wit: Even if we limit it to just the bolded parts, where the Empire is being assaulted by hostile outside forces, it's still unbelievable that the Empire didn't collapse halfway down the list. Hopefully, FFG will either stretch these conflicts out over a much larger span of time, or just do the Second Day of Thunder and then the next several in-game decades worth of story will be inter-clan conflict or dealing with decidedly mortal enemies; I think AEG were planning to have the Unicorn try to conquer the Yobanjin before they sold the IP. The biggest problem with the Kolat was always that they had their fingers in too many pies at once - they're an anti-Kami sect, AND a massive criminal Enterprise, AND they're fighting against the Lying Darkness? Just one of those would have been enough.
  12. Everyone else isn't the Isawa, thus they'd be of limited help with a problem that the Isawa don't understand? How is that not the pinnacle of arrogance? "Well, I don't understand how this works, so obviously you couldn't be of any help, because you're not a Phoenix."
  13. I find it interesting how the Elemental Council are convinced it's the Unicorn who are the source of the problem, and Tadaka insists that it's Shadowlands-related - did the other Councilors not fill him in on their theories, and if they did, why is Tadaka so convinced it's 'Leng and the Gang who're at fault instead?
  14. So first a tsunami, and now a drought or field fire? Can the Phoenix please stop trying to help?
