To the Samurai of Rokugan Competing at Worlds

Recommended Posts

Hello! I wish you all good luck and fun times, I wish I was there. I am a descendant of Japanese heritage, and have enjoyed the culture and lore of Legend of the Five Rings over the years.

There is a phrase in Japanese culture that is said to wish the recipient a great many years or prosperity and fortune. A phrase that should only mean goodwill and fortune. I would like to share the good will with you all, that you might share it's meaning and blessing with others.'Banzai' a simple two syllable phrase that can mean alot.

I won't force or tell anyone they must reply, but I ask this thread will only be filled with good feelings and intentions, as I am trying to only do the same. I am not seeking strife or harm. I just would like to share a piece of my heritage, my culture.

If you would like to share the same with others here, and those who have traveled, and are traveling to worlds, who I hope will have safe journies home, and fun times. Please at the end of this return the call with 'Banzai'

 

UTZ!

One of my early Kotei was in Atlanta, GA. The rest of my group had cancelled at the last minute, so I was there alone. The banzai cry made me feel like a part of the crowd instead of my normal setting of standing against it.

 

BANZAI!!!!!

I'm still in shocked by that turn one Way of the Crab against Tsukune. :o

Worst part was he could have played around it, he could have forced the Assassination and drove the crab to 0 like the phoenix should be doing, but instead he went for the golden play. It was a noble effort, but one that cost him a win.

I am not a descendant by blood but I am by culture and family. I was adopted. My moms sister married a Japanese man. He was my Uncle and my favorite relative ever! I've always had an interest and love for the Japanese culture. We use to play poker, hearts, chess and backgommon. Him and my dad taught me to love games. With my own sons I took that to a whole different realm. L5R is one of our Favorites!!!!!!!!!!

I like your post BlindSamurai13

cheers
