Ivory Arc Concluded

Hello guys, Well, I don't know if anyone still comes here, and I don't know if anyone still cares about the story, but just in case there are a few that do, the L5R Story Team has finished the Ivory story arc and you can find the PDF containing the last L5R stories in the AEG continuity at the link ...

Re: FFG buying L5R

If anyone here is interested in seeing the in-progress L5R novel published in the interim, be sure to let FF know.

Regarding the game, I am not too worried. Fantasy Flight does a good job. I think they will do good things with L5R.

Interactive Novel: Mysterious Motivations

I hope this is the right place for this, apologies if I'm mistaken. The first major vote for the Interactive Novel is up on the L5R webpage! Early in the novel, a minor faction takes an important Imperial hostage for mysterious reasons. This vote will determine the affiliation of the kidnappers. Eac...

Re: Shinjo Kinto

I don't remember when this tournament was held, but could it have been possible to just copy/paste over Shinjo Kinto in the Gempukku story with another random Unicorn personality, or were the inserts already at the printer? Nope, they were already at the printer. But it's all good, because Kinto wa...

Re: Shinjo Kinto

I can shed some light on this, actually! I'm the one who wrote the Unicorn fiction for the Gempukku rulebook. I also did the Crane and Phoenix ones. I wrote that fiction waaaaaay back in May of 2012! That's right, nine months before Gempukku was even released! During that time, there was a tournamen...

Re: Winter Court III

Now that people are getting assignments, I wanted to point out something that will be a little different this year. The intention this year is to canonize everything that happens at WC3 . To put it simply, everything that happens during the game is canon unless the Story Team vetoes it. RPG players ...

Re: Naleesh's Fate

I believe it is Scenes from the Empire 23 or 24, and yeah she was pre-gempukku when Shono died I think. Which fiction mentions the crane courtier? I remember it but not the details. Min-Hee was 9 when Shono died. She was born in 1161, he died in 1170. That being said, as its like 1198 now (after th...

Probably meant for draft. It's way better in that format, anyway.

Re: EoW Strategy Preview:Two Fronts

Plus, the battlefields are adjacent to one-another (as per the comprehensive rules) so if you have unopposed movement, you can sleeze a province at the end of the game via this card. That's something at least. Except that they have to have two provinces in order to play this card, so you are not sl...

Re: EE Preview: Moto Naleesh

The traits give her the versatility to be in multple themes, but once she's in that theme, the other traits aren't going to mean much (generally speaking). I haven't thought of it this way. But it is true. Her gold cost sums every keyword, but depending on the deck you're playing, you'll have "dead...

Re: EE Preview: Moto Naleesh

Tactician does plenty in the dishonor and honor matchup. It helps you BUST PROVINCES! RAWR!

...Or did you mean the straightening trait? Less of a role, but it protects you from retribution from those decks. Less RAWR, but still some RAWR!

Re: EE Preview: Moto Naleesh

Well, I think she's good. Really good, even. Good enough for Battle Maidens AND Tacticians, in my opinion. But then, I play a faction where for two entire arcs our champion had an honor requirement that was literally impossible to reach until the last turn of the game, a high gold cost without the g...

Re: EE Preview: Moto Naleesh

The 10HR is a bit annoying because God forbid Unicorn gets a reliably-purchasable 2nd turn Champion like pretty much every other Clan. :roll: But that's just it, she is a reliably turn 2 champion! Remember, we already know that Silk Works is being reprinted (thanks to the GenCon demo decks) and you...

Re: EE Preview: Moto Naleesh

Based on the holdings we've already seen previewed, if you're a Unicorn player that goes second, you can buy Naleesh on turn 2.

Also, she's a Tactician, so she can bust a province all by herself without attachments.

This is what a good champion looks like, I assure you.

Re: EE Preview: The Compassion of the Unicorn

Note that Moto Naleesh will almost always be able to play this on your opponent's turn to straighten one of your guys that attacked last turn. So even if you throw everything and have no defense but her on the next turn, this action will buy you another defense dude. +1 Honor is just icing. I think ...
