L5R Core Rulebook Typos and Corrections

Recommended Posts

Core Rulebook, p. 296, under "Varying Difficulty in Text":

Quote

TN 3 Fitness check (Earth 1, Fire 4)... This means that the check has a TN of 3 if the character uses their Fire Ring...

Typo: explanation is wrong, it should obviously be TN 4 for Fire instead of 3.

Edit: as IJiminy points out, the invocations are all privileged access, so this probably isn't a typo.  Retracted!

 

 

Core Rulebook p77 - Kaito Shrine Keeper [Monk]:

Currently reads:

Quote

Techniques Available: Kata, Rituals, Shuji

Based on the curriculum for Kaito Shrine Keeper, I believe this should read:

Quote

Techniques Available: Invocations, Kata, Rituals

It'd be hard to gain school ranks in it if you can't actually purchase invocations! 😄 The class starts with free kata, invocations, and rituals, for that matter.

 

 

Awesome game--loving what I'm reading so far, and can't wait to get going on it!

Corebook, p 328, Table 8-1, subtable martial opportunities, fire, one-opportunity "Choose another character in the scene; increase the TN of the next check they made before the start of their next turn by 1 if it does not include you as a target." As worded, it's almost impossible, and without talents involved, is impossible, for this to have any effect outside of rolled resistances. 

I believe it should read, ""Choose another character in the scene; increase the TN of the next check they made before the start of their your next turn by 1 if it does not include you as a target."

On my low res character sheet in the techniques,  my opportunity symbol is missing, or has an X in a box when I print it out. Also, is it me, or do we need more weapon space. I was making a Crane yojimbo, he has a daisho set (2weapons), polearm, knife, arrows, and a tessen...

In page 306, under Peasant Family Background's Skill Increase, "+1 to any two Labour skills of your choice." Probably its a typo of "+1 to any two Trade skills of your choice," as the Labour is a specific skill not a skill group as stated in  page 167.

Inconsistency: Core Rulebook, page 14: Mentions there are Seven Great Fortunes; the following page (p. 15) lists the Eight Great Fortunes, and the two-page header spread (pp. 14-15) shows the Eight Great Fortunes.

P. 145, "Hierarchy of Skills" sidenote: "Artisan skills are viewed as they most vaunted in Rokugan." and should read "Artisan skills are viewed as the most vaunted in Rokugan."

I believe that’s not a typo... All the invocations that appear in their curriculum are there due to privileged access. The Shrine Keepers are not true Shugenja so it’s in keeping with their fluff.

This might be more me not understanding, but I think it's a typo:

On page 95 in the section 19. What is your character's personal name? It states "In the Rokugani style, the character is typically addressed by their family name (chosen in Question 18)"

The family (and therefore family name?) is chosen in question 2. Question 18 deals with an ancestor's name.

I could be misunderstanding something here though.

I think that the Kaiu has one too many starting techniques.  Every school with 5 skills, except the Engineer, only gets 2 techniques.  (This with 3 skills get 5 techniques, and 4 skills get 4 techniques, except the Togashi, 'cos they're special).

So, Pg 59, under starting techniques, '(choose one)' is missing after 'Shuji'
