  2. Hello There is an AOS tournament this coming Saturday at the store (November 4th, 2017). I should be up for playing some L5R after the tournament though . On Saturday, November 11th, 2017 from 1pm -6pm (Normal L5R times). We will be having a tournament. There will be some changes from the last tournament: 1. Rounds will be 1 ½ hrs (for now), we will give 5 minutes between rounds. 2. In final ranking order, players will pick prizes until they’re all gone. No longer top of clan. Please post if you will be playing!
  3. Hello This thread is for rules questions and comments. The rules reference sheet can be found at the bottom of this page: https://www.fantasyflightgames.com/en/products/legend-of-the-five-rings-the-card-game/
  4. Hello So L5R is being released next week!!!!! On Thursday, October 5th, 2017, there should be L5R available for purchase. Learn to play: I am hoping to have two casual learning to play nights at the Store on Thursday October 5th and Friday October 6th, 2017. I am hoping to start around 5:30pm both nights. I will run other learn to play nights and teach people upon request as well. Release Event: Officially most places are running their release event the Saturday after release, Saturday October, 7th. However, the following Monday is thanksgiving and people might be out of town and I am not sure if people are going to feel ready to try and play in a tournament/ Event (even a casual one) 2 days after release??? I was thinking maybe Saturday, October 14th, 2017 for the release events. The Release Event would be 30/ 30 card decks. Some players might not be financial able to buy the 3 full starter boxes right after release. In less players want to go full out 3 boxes ASAP. All tournaments after will allow all cards though to be clear. So need input: 1. Who is coming for one of the learn to play night and which ones? 2. Release event, Saturday October 7th or the 14th ? 3. 1-starter box and 30/30 or full out 40/40 decks?
  5. 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!
  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.

  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.

  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.
