Re: Welcome

Id say let people know its fun and first game will take about 90 minutes. Then focus on technical goodies.. after a couple games they know the rules and away they go.

Re: Does a new role mean new province lineup?

I agree with the overall assessment of the gap between three and four being larger than four and five.. but I think that's so due to so many four strength provinces which skews the curve to <4 being weak and easily broken and >5 being tough to crack. The use of an air province in a seeker lineup is ...

Re: Welcome

I'd start by checking facebook or reddit .. the L5R groups there would seem to be able to tell you what locals are doing in your area.

Re: GenCon 2018

The honor gain from Yurt has saved me in more games than I can count, because I play very aggressively. During round 2 at GenCon, I defeated a lion player with HMT ending the game at 1 honor. I would've lost without the yurt, but my hope was people would see Dragon splash and assume I'm on hawk and...

Victory Condition -By Ide Tamaki (discord handle /NOT ME)

Victory Condition -By Ide Tamaki (discord handle) Well that did not go as expected. Thought Ide Tadaji, his hand gently stroking his chin.

Does a new role mean new province lineup?

Right now I am waiting for the post Gencon Results to see what new role we have and was thinking about what I would run style wise with a new role. The only province I'm settled on is Earth for Unholding Authority as it helps my early game strategy with both hand knowledge and a nice discard effect....

Re: GenCon 2018

I like the ideas you represent here. I've been working mostly on Curse Decks but it looks solid. I personally would lean more towards Endless ( as I like to encourage over commit) and Sliding in a hawk tattoo as well as the best covert is bowed guys don't block. and shameful under the box and then n...

Re: Maintaining Balance

I think the list actually hurts us more than helps.. even though we are not hurt by it directly it puts more Assassination in the environment which hurts us more.

Re: Let's talk Tactics!

Since the RL has come out I moved to crab and it has worked out very well. Also I need to see a good Phoenix list as I've owned the locals with both Pony and Crab.

Also as of late I've been very impressed with Scorp/ Lion Splash as it uses the power to avoid defensive tricks and win small conflics.

Re: Shinjo Shono

I agree a good 4 drop is a good thing to see. I also like seeing swarmy characters with pride as they often win conflicts. I wish he said Unicorn rather than Cavalry for his bonus but I'm ok with how he is .. a real auto include in all our builds.

Re: Dispatch

I try not to comment on cards until I get a chance to see them in action. This card though works very well in courtier builds as you can bail or move with it. However, this card being Limited and costing 1 fate both are prohibitive to using this card to full effect unless you want to move into polit...

Re: Sifting Unicorn

I like the concept but really am not as sold on loading up for Cavalry Reserves unless you are running a Lion/FGG splash. ON the character side.. the math is shoddy with only 1x3 one drops, Also not sold on finger in a deck 6 2 drops and 6 five drops getting a good econ boost from it is tough to hit...
