• Runewars Miniatures Game: Meet 'n Greet!
    The battle for Terrinoth begins on Wednesday, November 21st! Runewars Miniatures Game: Meet 'n Greet! Come out to The Wandering Dragon to learn this exciting miniatures game, play a regular match, or just meet some of the other players in the area. Bring your painted army to show off your painting prowess! Figures and maps will be provided, all that’s needed is you! Stay tuned to Meetup for additional dates coming soon... Runewars Miniatures Game For years, the armies of Waiqar the Undying have stayed within their borders, launching only minor raids across the border. But now, a nameless threat stirs within the Mistlands, and legions of undead cross into the realm of Terrinoth under Waiqar’s command! The Daqan Lords have sounded the call to war, and their finest generals lead armies of warriors and golems to take up defensive positions in the border territory of Roth’s Vale. The first battles of the next great war are about to begin. Runewars: Miniatures Game is a two-player miniatures game of battles between the great powers of Terrinoth. In each game, you and your opponent will gather armies of miniatures and lead them into battle—blocks of infantry will maneuver for position, cavalry wings will wheel and slam into a weakened flank, and monstrous rune golems or carrion lancers will smash through formations of lesser warriors. Innovative command tools, four distinct factions, and countless ways to customize your experience combine to offer an unparalleled miniatures gaming experience in RuneWars!

The Imperial Cycle Shoju clasped his hands behind his back, his good left holding his withered right. “An absurd thought occurs to me,” he said. “Perhaps it is only because I’m fatigued after my exertions in the dōjō. However, one could take what you just said to mean that I could sit upon the Chrysanthemum Throne.” He smiled. “As I said, though, it is absurd to think you could even be so much as hinting at such a thing, isn’t it?” –D.G. Laderoute, The World, A Stage Change is coming to the Emerald Empire, as the Great Clans jockey for position in the Emperor’s courts and on the field of battle. From the opium dens in the City of Lies, to the Wall that still stands strong against the Shadowlands, to the High House of Light in the northern mountains, there are stories being told across all Rokugan—and in Legend of the Five Rings: The Card Game, you have the chance to play a role in that story unfolding. The next chapters of the unfolding story of Legend of the Five Rings begins in the six Dynasty Packs of the Imperial Cycle for Legend of the Five Rings: The Card Game! You can order all six Dynasty Packs of the Imperial Cycle at The Wandering Dragon and get 15% off! The Imperial Summons The Emperor has summoned you to court—and for the advent of the first cycle of Dynasty Packs, we are thrilled to announce a special event to grow and immerse you into Legend of the Five Rings: The Card Game in an unprecedented way. Rather than releasing one Dynasty Pack per month over a period of six months, the release schedule for the Imperial Cycle will be compounded and concentrated into a shorter period of time. Beginning in early November, one Dynasty Pack will be released every week for six weeks. During this special event, the meta for Legend of the Five Rings: The Card Game will evolve rapidly, potentially allowing new and exciting deck archetypes to rise to prominence in a matter of days. In addition, the tales of Rokugan told through the fiction included in each Dynasty Pack will see the story of the Imperial Cycle advance from week to week. We can’t wait to journey deeper into the realm of Rokugan every week during this special event, and we’re excited for you to visit the Imperial city alongside us! Enter the Imperial City As you experience the wonders of the Imperial Cycle, you’ll find yourself pulled into the inter-Clan politics and power struggles that define the world of Rokugan. Each of the seven Great Clans receives new cards over the course of these six Dynasty Packs, continuing to embrace and define the themes that began in the Legend of the Five Rings: The Card Game Core Set. Along the way, you’ll find a great assortment of cards focused on the Imperial City of Otosan Uchi. From neutral samurai sworn to the Imperial family, to certain districts of the great city that have an affinity for a certain clan, to Imperial magistrates from each of the Great Clans, to rewards for holding the Imperial Favor, this cycle draws you into the world of Otosan Uchi and the service of the Emperor. The Imperial Cycle Begins What will you choose for your clan? Are you a Keeper of your element, protecting and guiding? Or are you a Seeker, journeying into new lands and pushing the boundaries of what’s possible? Prepare for the release of the Imperial Cycle starting on November, 9th and join us at The Wandering Dragon for our L5R: Dragon OPS events to receive rare, exclusive prizes! Dragon OPS: Legend of the Five Rings is a casual open play event, where you can find other interested Legend of the Five Rings: The Card Game players and invite them to play with you! Open your Core Set, and use the included Learn to Play guide to begin your journey in Rokugan. Help each other select a clan and Keeper or Seeker role, and then build a 30-card Dynasty deck, a 30-card Conflict deck, and choose five provinces. Suggested Starting Deck Lists: https://images-cdn.fantasyflightgames.com/filer_public/c0/99/c0995a8d-f56b-45e3-801a-054ec7623494/l5r_suggesteddecklists_b.pdf Sample 1 Core Decks: http://imperialadvisor.com/wp/2017/08/14/sample-1-core-decks/ You could also work on full decks built with the Keeper or Seeker roles chosen at the Winter Court World Championships! You will need at least two Core Sets to build Dynasty and Conflict decks with 40 to 45 cards each and must use the role assigned to your clan. Sharpen your skills and get ready for even more Legend of the Five Rings events at The Wandering Dragon! Legend of the Five Rings The Emerald Empire of Rokugan. It is a land upheld by honor, guided by fate, ruled by destiny. The Great Clans each support the Emperor, but inter-clan conflict is inevitable—both in the Emperor’s courts and on the battlefield. In the midst of danger and turmoil, honor must be your sword and your armor. Enter the vibrant world of Rokugan with Legend of the Five Rings: The Card Game, a Living Card Game of honor and conflict for two players! Drawing on the legacy of AEG’s original Legend of the Five Rings collectible card game, and now reimagined with new mechanics, story, and the Living Card Game distribution model, you are invited to join the Great Clans, uphold the tenets of Bushidō, and fulfill your duty to your daimyō and the Emperor in a world shaped and changed by a dynamic, player-influenced story. During the game, you take on the leadership of one of the Great Clans which define Rokugani society, and you are cast into conflict against another clan. Your conflicts will decide the future of Rokugan, whether you’re battling with a katana or with cutting words, but the samurai of your clan cannot remain by your side indefinitely—when their destinies are fulfilled, you must find new allies to continue your conflicts. Ultimately, it’s your choice whether you will fight with honor or use unsavory means, but in every game, it is your role to lead your clan to victory.
