    [L5R - 4th edition] Stats for NPC Lost.

    I'm trying to write some Shadowlands content for my ongoing game (Set in 1118 so it precedes the Spider Clan). However I can't find any stats for `Average` Lost. I've only got some super-powerful NPCs from Enemies of the Empire, who are around Taint 8-9. I'm looking for Taint 4-5 NPCs like Dark...

    [L5R 4th ed] Character Creation help

    I'm creating a new character for a L5R 4th table (a game I'm a little bit familiar from a long time ago in much earlier editions but not in depth), and as always when I do I tend to waffle endlessly about my picks etc. so i figured I might as well ask a little bit of advice. The GM has been a...

    [7th Sea & L5R] Similarities between Theah and Rokugan

    So, I was looking at two settings that I really like -- Theah and Rokugan, both largely John Wick creations -- and noticed that the movers-and-shakers in either setting have a lot in common. The Crab Clan compares most easily to the nation of Eisen. They are constantly fighting monsters, live a...

    [L5R] Dragon Age: Inquisition - Rokugan Edition?

    So I'm thinking of running an L5R game for a small group of great roleplayers; very character driven, etc etc. I'm thinking that taking the basic shape of Dragon Age: Inquisition and applying it to Rokugan would be a great opportunity to resolve a lot of L5R's sometime problems with campaign...

    Which L5R?

    Now a lot of us have seen what's on the cards for the new FFG version of the Legends of the Five Rings rpg, which one are you likely to go for? For myself, the FFG version just hasn't grabbed me. While there are a few points I like, the majority just isn't doing in for me in a somewhat nebulous...

    Anyone played the Beta of the new L5R RPG?

    Fantasy Flight Games is putting out a new version of the L5R RPG. I've checked the FFG forum, and there doesn't appear to be a lot of recent opinion, but what is there isn't good. Has anyone here tried it? I've only played 1st edition, and Rokugan is one of my favorite worlds. Thanks!

    Legend of the 5 rings - Who would win a Sengoku like war?

    I'm playing shogun 2 and I'm in a campaign of Legend of the 5 rings, so this question came up. If a civil war like Sengoku broke out, which clan would win?

    [Motivational] [MCU] [L5R]

    It's been ages since I've posted here, and I don't see a Motivational Posters thread, so I'm making one for this series of L5R/Avenger crossovers. Please tell me if this is the wrong place. Also if it's the right place. Anyway, I was feeling particularly geeky and made these. EDIT: I'm having...

    [L5R] Do we know where the metaplot stands?

    While we wait, perhaps forever, for FFG to announce an L5R RPG does anyone know where the setting stands at the moment? Is it after the last events of the old CCG or are they resetting the clock? I haven't taken the time to read the new fiction they've posted. Perhaps if someone here recommends...

    [L5R] My problems with Rokugan

    Over the last three years I've been thinking a lot about the problems I have with L5R, especially after the last campaign I ran in L5R wasn't entirely a success. Now, obviously this is all my opinion and YMMV and there’s a lot of hyperbole and I’m not being entirely serious – or fair. And yes, I...

    L5R Empire of Emerald Stars

    [l5r] Buying the way of the clans vs. 4th edition

    So recently samurai rpg's have been on my mind, and therefore I decided that I should probably learn about Rokugan and legend of the five rings, as it seems to be the most well known of them. After reading some advice I ended up buying the 1st edition corebook, and City of Lies, and I am pretty...

    [L5R] [+] The thread about all the awesomeness of 'L5R'

    I love L5R & Rokugan & throughout the 20+ years it's been around, while I haven't loved everything done with it, it has, nevertheless, been the source of a lot of awesomeness! This is a thread were we celebrate all that! :) :) So, post all the stuff, be it characters, story-beats big & small...

    L5R returns to 1st Edition setting?

    A friend of mine sent me an article from a Spanish blog were they talk about FFG having plans to return the L5R setting to its 1st Edition roots, and that the L5R timeline will advance with the RPG, not the cardgame. Anyone knows if this is true? Because I really hope this is true, but I can't...

    [L5R] Oni design Feedback desired

    So I've recently tried my hands on creating my own Oni. Aiko no Oni is by standarts of Oni not particular powerful but it's an insidious and tricky foe that musn't be underestimated even in a direct fight. Aiko no Oni has two forms each with it's own abilities. It can switch between it's two...

    [L5R] Do samurai have to follow orders from higher status samurai from a different family/clan?

    Question as per the title. I've been searching around the 4E books and the internet, and I can't find anything on how samurai would approach this. Could (for example) a daimyo from the Phoenix give an order to a regular Dragon samurai and expect the order to be followed? I imagine that if the...
