Legend of the Five Rings: The Edge of the Cliff

Rokugan, 1118. The Empire has been at peace for three centuries. No Oni Lord has risen to march on the Wall, no usurper has risen to challenge the Emerald throne, no madman to unleash horror upon the land. The Shadowlands are quiet save for raids and disorganized attacks by small packs of demonic rabble, easily driven back. Bushi grow restless without an enemy to give them purpose, and wait for a war. Daimyo, lacking a common threat to unite them, brood on old insults and covet their neighbours' wealth. Conspiracies are born and slowly grow in the shadowed corners of an empire grown complacent. None know how long the peace can last...

This campaign will use the Legend of the Five Rings system, Fourth Edition rules. Four to six players will take the role of Samurai new to formal adulthood and assigned as deputies to an Imperial magistrate. They will start out travelling the Emeral Empire and discovering and punishing violations of Imperial Law.

    Got here a bit early. Didn't see anyone downstairs so I'm loitering at the front of the store.

    It's a bit late but just in case anyone wants to work out characters in advance I'll get things started. I've got something mostly worked out, but that something is a Doji courtier which might be annoying especially in a small group.

      Just remember to invest a point or two in Bugei skills; I'll include some chances for intrigue and diplomacy as well as investigations and information-gathering, but you'll still be playing Yoriki to an Emerald Magistrate. Combat will happen.

      Yeah, I was boring and took Kyujutsu + Defence. I might just go with Doji Magistrate instead if I can come up with anything interesting character-wise. Last time I played only the core was out so I've been meaning to give them a try.

    Also, I'll be bringing in Emerald Empire and some crunch from The Great Clans, if anyone wants to look through them when rolling up their characters.

    Just checking to see if we're on for Saturday. IIRC James was looking to have at least four players plus GM.

      I'm still running it. A three-person group should be able to run, and in the meantime I'll see about recruiting one or two others.

    Provisionally setting the location for 401 Games (I've sent them a request for space, but have not yet received a response). Failing that, I'll probably move the game to Wizard's Cache near St. George Station. Failing that, I'll think of something.

      Almost certainly[masked]; the shop clerk said there should be more than enough space. Will change the listed location if there's a problem.

    I'll most likely handle character generation at the start of the session, but players are welcome to develop their character concepts and post them in this thread. If everyone hashes out their characters ahead of time we may be able to start the campaign straight away. Guidelines for character generation:

    -no Artisan or Ninja schools; you won't have much (if any) time to craft stuff, an in any case the Clans aren't going to send their rare and valuable specialists off to works as beat cops/detective's assistants

    -You'll all be Great Clan samurai (the Mantis are still Minor at this point), but you can enroll your characters in Minor Clan schools using the Different Schools advantage (costs 5 XP). For reference, the Tsuruchi are still the Wasp Clan, the Kitsune are still the Fox, and the Monkey Clan is 50-odd years in the future

    -I'm going for a good balance of combat, intrigue, investigation etc., so whatever character type you choose should have a meaningful role to play

      addendum: the Toritaka are still the Falcon
