A different sort of L5r!

For Whom the Atolls - Forum
Legend of the Five Rings 3e
Estimated Members Requested: 5

So, I had planned to have this be at least a "semi" private game, but as it turns out I would like some more people. You lovely M-W people to join!

This, in the long run, will likely not be Par for the Course as far as l5r games. But in the end, it will be a lot of what the players make of it.

A Court-like setting is where the game will begin, but it is not likely to be a court heavy game. For now, it is basic character creation

Please ask any questions you may have!

Game Description:

As the first scenes are set, the light of the sun falls on Iron Turtle City. As of recently times have Interesting, and some would call interesting times a curse. At the end of the last season Iweko Seiken, Heir Apparent of the Emerald Empire had nearly been lost at sea. There are many rumors around as to what happened exactly, but they mostly agree that he was rescued by the Mantis, and brought into the safety of Iron Turtle City.

Since then the great Empress Iweko I 'asked' for a volunteer force to replace those lost in the missing ships. The heir and his ships were seeking to reinforce the colonies with an extra force organized by Shosuro Kai, seeking to show unified support of the empire to those so far away fighting and dying in new lands attempting to build civilization amongst the ruins of the gaijin hordes. However, so far as it is known all seventeen ships were lost including all the materials and samurai aboard.

The Ship works have been in overdrive, producing the highest quality ships to field a second attempt, not to let the previous losses go forgotten and their goal set aside. The request from the empress was that every Family send at least one representative, be they a Great family, Vassal, or even ronin order. Rumor has it that an Imperial vessel is on its way to the city now, and from all the setup one could almost suppose that the winter imperial court was to be here, if it were winter of course rather than starting into summer.

Multiple apps y/n? I have a few ideas, as anyone who knows me would be willing to attest to.

lol Apps no, but you can join the discussion with your ideas and see what the pool (and myself) have to say about them! If they have sekret sqirl components, pm or private those parts!

Hmmmm... I've always made Lion characters (and by always, I mean the two times I have made characters) so I think I would like to make a Ronin if that's okay? A True Ronin using option #2 and going the route of the Disciples of Sun Tao who has gotten himself onto the expedition somehow (gotta figure that important detail out <.<).

Well, they aren't really turning anyone away from this >_>
Though the Disciples themselves could ha' sent you, they are an established organization that I am more then happy to count as a "Family" for sending one some.

Though... :P That kinda is like a ronin lion just sayn

Well, my copy of the book is in America at the moment, in a storage compartment....and I'm in Japan...but...here's a character I had that was an interesting concept that died a bit early in game. Still looking to play with it.

some of the details will have to be changed of course...don't have the time to look through it right now to see what needs to be fixed to match the setting...about to leave for work

among other things, she's likely to have too much xp

Really? I got more Crane than Lion from the Disciples, duelists who have learned from someone that has literally studied them all.

Yea.. I guess theres that. I guess its just their starter Sun Tao is kinda a lion duelsty guy.

I'd love to join! Will poke my nose around the OOC thread and such to see what people are thinking, but planning something Dragon, most likely.
