Re: GenCon Dinner 2015 - Order swag and Payment due by July

Mine apparently got lost in the shuffle at some point. I finally stopped going through Seals (thanks, though!), and talked to Frank directly (paged him in the L5R group on FB). Then he replied to my email, saying it was mistakenly not shipped, and he'd have it the mail the following Monday with trac...

Current/Upcoming PbP RPG games?

As the title asks, does anyone know of any current/upcoming PbP RPG games? I looked at Rokugan High, and the setting doesn't look like something I'd care for. I played FRO briefly a few years ago, I'm just not a huge fan of the chat format. Outside of those, my searching hasn't turned up anything, s...

Re: [EP] Evil Portents Unicorn Previews

I'm getting really tired of 3f guys for 8, and annoyed at 3f guys for 7. This. Death priest is good. Battle maiden is over box honor and completely inefficient, but can kill some naked things and the lower end followers. Chinua is another not dash honor requirement force inefficient guy with a batt...

Re: GenCon Dinner 2015 - Last day to order swag July 1st!

Definitely not going now, see Seals already has me on that side. If we're not going, is there anything special we need to do to "order' other than make sure someone gets paid (and shipping arranged)?

Re: GenCon Dinner 2015 - Last day to order swag July 1st!

I'm still trying to figure out if I'll make it or not, but the box would be nifty either way.

Re: Unicorn Space Wizard Dragon Summoning - Top 4 Boston

I played a variation of this in Prescott this past weekend. I made minor changes to the Dynasty, and some rather larger ones Fateside. It's a fun deck to play, and my two losses were both very close. I absolutely agree you want the Dragons in this deck. Yes, seeing them early sucks (one of my games,...

Re: Unicorn Story Paths

I like this option, though I just want to ask -- with this, would we keep the additional choice of our bonus "search for allies" choice that goes along with our already-defined possibilities? 'Cause I'm all for getting some outside allies into things as well.

Re: Nebraska Kotei 4th place

I was looking forward to this report, since I've been considering playing the military control combo at a later kotei. I've been testing it, and I think I have to agree it's not quite there yet. I also tried to build a more militarized version of it, the problem there being that then the control ele...

Re: Unicorn Story Paths

Definitely like Option 1. I'd have to think about it for a while, but I think I'd probably lean to A. Also have no issue with looking outside for allies, though I see no need for us to go out and conquer -- military-minded as we are, conquest just doesn't seem like Shinjo's Way. Of course, I'd be al...

Re: 20F Arc Tselu Sensei Control

Mostly it's about bowing most/all of their guys and just swinging everyone at one, without attachments. Like I said though, the lack of attachments was mostly to see how good the control elements were, and they're good. I definitely want to refine a version of this deck, and I'm certainly going to t...

20F Arc Tselu Sensei Control

So here's my version, thrown together last week and with limited testing. The control aspect is definitely strong. I've only played it against other military decks so far (Crab Daigo, Spider ninja/fear, Uni military (forget what) and Scorpion ninja dueling). Jao-shen was easily the least useful pers...

Re: Unicorn P.D. (20F Arc Tselu Control)

I actually threw something similar together last week, expecting it to be terrible. Won all 4 games I played, though I didn't get a chance to play against blitz/swarm or honor/dishonor -- It was against 4 different decks, though (Crab Daigo, Scorpion ninja dueling, Unicorn military (forget what exac...

Re: Unicorn Twenty Festivals starter deck - Feedback

So, with the Rare reprints in IvE, for the first time ever I bought a box of starters. I know that rare reprints aren't supposed to be the point of the starter decks, but it's part of where I'm coming from. I went through all of the 20F starter PDFs. As a player already in the game, I have to say th...

Re: Thoughts on the new Unicorn Stronghold?

It's really looking at the costs of our people in addition to having to change the gold scheme and be potentially inefficient T2+. I just played a game tonight where my 1st turn flip gave me 10 to start T2, and I was 1 gold short of what I REALLY wanted. That 1 gold haunted me the entire game. It wa...

Re: Tell us what is iconic about the Unicorn!

Have to add my vote to Battle Maidens and Compassion, and I'll toss in one more, from the 1E RPG: the original rank 2 Shinjo Bushi technique, that odd skill known as "Parrying" :P

Re: Thoughts on the new Unicorn Stronghold?

Just posted in the thread in previews, but I really don't see why they did this, while leaving Mantis getting free gold, and Tsujiken Sensei in the environment. Our Ivory 2 people all still seem to be costed for a 5-gold economy, meaning we still want to buy 5 gold worth of production on turn 1, whi...
