Re: Coronation - 2015-08-25

More importantly, this is the choice made by Jon Palmer, North American Champion. Winners get sprinkles. If people don't like it, they can try to win some tournaments and give their own direction to the story. I'm not complaining about Palmer's story choice, I'm complaining about its implementation...

Re: Coronation - 2015-08-25

I actually don't fault Seiken for his actions here (and anyone who's seen me comment on Seiken in the past knows that my opinion of him is not high). The Crane (a Clan that worked furiously to see his brother become Emperor instead of him) walk in, admit to having committed high treason in the past,...

Re: Coronation - 2015-08-25

This is a fiasco for the Crane. In response to Yurei's request, Seiken says that sure, the Daidoji can use gunpowder, just so long as... a) they don't use it against other Rokugani (i.e. the people against whom the Harriers were universally employed) and b) no-one ever finds out about it. In other w...

Re: The Left Hand's Path - Crane Story Paths

I'm sort of confused as to who it is who is going to be enacting this revenge on the Dragon. Kaori laid out a plausible psychological rationale for it, but... who even knows that the Dragon are responsible for the end of the Harriers? Domotai, definitely. Fumisato, likewise, but he died peacefully i...

Re: GenCon 2015 Clan Meeting

The Phoenix didn't get blood magic "back". They got the conflict between blood magic and kami-powered magic back. How would you phrase the return of the Harriers? Hand's description of the conflict they got approved was "an old conflict: pure blood magic versus the corruption of maho...

Re: The Left Hand's Path - Crane Story Paths

But how is this supposed to get them back? The obstacle to the revival of the Harriers was never the Dragon, except insofar as some number of Dragon might still be aware that the Harriers once existed, and be on the lookout for their return. It's not as if there was a treaty with the Dragon stipulat...

Re: GenCon 2015 Clan Meeting

Also, the ability to prove the Dragon wrong means that we can bring the Harriers back with little consequence. There is nothing to prove the Dragon wrong about. The Dragon never exposed anything. The Dragon specifically did not actually reveal that the Harriers existed and/or that the Crane were us...

Re: The Left Hand's Path - Crane Story Paths

At the Crane dinner that's what was decided as a slight to avenge, against the Dragon clan for exposing the Harriers. Doesn't mean we will get them back, but that's the focus as far as that story choice goes. As I noted in the dedicated Dinner thread, the Dragon did not publicly expose the Harriers...

Re: GenCon 2015 Clan Meeting

...we're going to choose the occasion of an invasion by Jigoku to take a thirty-year-stale revenge...Really? The Dragon, the Lion, the Scorpion, and the Mantis are all also revisiting old grudges. That was the question posed to us. The Phoenix are revisiting pure blood magic, circumventing the popu...
