Breach of ettiquette? :D

But I actually spelled "etiquette" right for once.  Also the old art on Breach was so funny.  You practically hear the guy knocking over the tea cups saying "D'oh!"  I remember one time we for some reason ended up playing at Denny's really late one night and a guy knocked over his drink leading to a mad scramble to save cards for the wetness.  After everything was cleaned up, I look over at the guy who knocked over glass and said, "Breach of Etiquette, Lose 5 Honor."

Oh man, talk about memory lane. This is great. I was actually going through classic L5R card names / ideas for my new pet project. So many excellent additions. I'll surely be able to complete both decks with these, and a few of the charts too ... :ph34r:

 

From my own stash of stuff: Stand Against the Waves, Superior Tactics, Wedge, For the Empire!, Peasant Revolt, and Deeds, Not Words.

All the clan related gold holdings come to my mind (Coper Mine, Gold Mine, Geisha House, Marketplace, and all the others). And when talking already about holdings then I have to think about Border Keep and Bamboo Harvesters ass well, or about the the legacy holdings of Seat of Power, Privat Traders, and Supply Smugglers.

 

I really hope the game will change to a different resources system, but somehow I would like to have cards with those holding names still in the game.

A friend of mine once did an entire deck under a certain theme. I forgot most of the cards by now but it was something along these lines... Can you guess the theme she picked?

 

Crane Stronghold (I forget which one was it)

Lots of Mantis Pirates

Lots of Crane Courtiers

 

Come One at a Time

Bend Like a Reed

From Every Side

Fall on Your Knees

To Do What We Must

Hiruma Dojo

Soem things which definded the game for me are the Dark and Bushido Virtues and exspecially some of the dark one cause they really show how samurai can choose to get tainted and what they are willing to sacrefice for the acomplisment of their duty.
 

At Any Cost

Black and White

Cast Aside the Weak

Determination

Insight

Paths of Honor & Glory

Knowledge

Perfect Sacrifice

Perfection

Revenge

Strength

Striking the Balance

It would be neat if we got The Deciding Moment back, since it was like, a pretty big deal, t-shirts and everything. Kind of lame how depending on your favorite Clan, you might've paid an arm, leg and firstborn child to acquire the appropriate version, only to learn that the game you got it for is retiring.

 

I never won with it, but all my decks during Emperor had a copy of "The Deciding Moment". Created so many dramatic (and usually futile) moments.

Breach of ettiquette? :D

 

Anything can technically come back as a new card.  It doesn't have to be game breaking and not-fun like before (or super fun, depending on which side of the table you were on).   :P

One of my favorite cards ever is Game of Sincerity. So versatile, so sneaky. Anyone can feel like a courtier with this card!

 

That's a good one from a later set.

 

Game of Sincerity - you win, or you get naked!

I was actually the one who had that banner made. I'm glad its memory lives on! :)

Really?  That's awesome!  I couldn't look at the card after that without filling in the blanks.

Game of Sincerity with Game of Sadane were a few of my favorite cards within the same block.

These feel recent though =)
