  1. L5R: A buddy hooked me up !

    Played the first two games in Sudbury yesterday with Dave H. I think it was super fun, fast paced, and with lots of interesting decisions to make each turn. I played Phoenix and Dave played Dragon. I really looking forward to playing some more games.
  2. Hello, I buddy of mine went to Gencon and picked me up two starter boxes of the NEW L5R. I have made 4 Decks , so we can have 2 games going at a time. I am hoping to play my first games this weekend. I will bring them with me to the Nook on Friday and Saturday night. Let me know if you would like to give it a go!
  3. Hello, I will give this a go as well :)
  4. I think Dragon are going to be a really cool clan to play. Very versatile and interesting game play. Did you read the article for them?
  5. I am soo torn between going back to Phoenix as my main clan, like it always has been, The other choice is scorpion, which I have always played along side phoenix and I typically love game play and story wise. I know I will have decks for both of them, but which one to play as my main?? I kind of want to go scorpion for main for once, but tradition wise I want to stick with phoenix.
  6. Hello :) So L5R is now being released as an LCG. Which means that players will mostly have play sets of every card in the game. So really players could play any clan they wanted to. However, L5R is a game heavily driven on clan identity, loyalty, and story involvement. So what clan(s) will you guys and girls plan on “swearing loyalty” to? List your first clan and second clan if any.
  7. Announcing the First Dynasty Pack for Legend of the Five Rings: The Card Game: Tears of Amaterasu As the seven clans of Rokugan continue to serve the Emperor, cracks begin to fracture between them. Conflict is brewing in the Emerald Empire, and every clan must be ready for the turmoil to follow. Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce Tears of Amaterasu, the first Dynasty Pack in the Imperial Cycle for Legend of the Five Rings: The Card Game. Tears of Amaterasu comes with three copies each of twenty new cards, giving every clan new tools in their quest for superiority.

  10. L5R- Scorpion Clan - Masters of Deception Underhanded and manipulative, the Scorpion Clan are often seen as the villain in the land of the Emerald Empire. And often, with good reason. After all, to best combat the liars, thieves, and traitors within the Great Clans, the Scorpion lie, steal, and cheat in turn. The weapons of the Scorpion have become blackmail, poison, and sabotage, their agents unafraid to dirty their hands to keep the Empire clean.

  11. L5R- Unicorn Clan - Wandering Warriors Eight hundred years ago, the Ki-Rin Clan left Rokugan to scout the world for enemies beyond the Emerald Empire. When they returned, they cut a swathe through the Crab Clan’s defense and devastated the Lion. Though they have returned to the fold, reborn as the Unicorn, the Clan still struggles to integrate with the rest of the Emerald Empire. They are viewed as foreigners with strange ways, wandering nomads who fight in unnatural ways with their powerful Meishōdō magic and superior horsemanship skills.

  12. L5R- Phoenix Clan - Keepers of Harmony The responsibility of maintaining balance can only fall to a select few—to the mystic shugenja tending to the spirits of the land; to the glorious warriors slow to conflict, but deadly when they act; to those who ensure the five elements remain ever in balance.

  13. L5R- Crab Clan - Rokugan's Shield Far in the south of Rokugan sits the Kaiu Wall, a hulking shield that defends the Emerald Empire from the horrors of the Shadowlands. Manning this wall is the stalwart Crab Clan, guardians of the Rokugan who sacrifice everything in the name of duty. : Article: Preview The Crab Clan: https://www.fantasyflightgames.com/en/news/2017/7/12/rokugans-shield/ Video: Preview The Crab Clan:
  14. L5R- Dragon Clan - Monks of the Mountain Deep within the mountains of Rokugan reside the Dragon Clan. Enigmatic and mysterious, isolated by the mountains of their northern home and entrusted with watching over the Empire, few can anticipate the actions of these secluded warrior monks. Though when they do choose to intervene in the conflicts of the Emerald Empire, the Dragon's true strength is revealed.

  15. L5R – Lion Clan - Masters of War With the largest standing military in Rokugan, few can stand up to the pure might of the Lion Clan. As the right hand of the emperor, the Lion live, breathe, and die for the Emerald Empire. Throwing themselves into glorious battle, the Lion clan dominates their foes with staggering military might.
