Clan Focus – The Crab

Clan Focus – The Crab

Hida Kisada

The Crab Clan, defenders of the Empire. Although they are famous for their wall and for their heavy armour and Tetsubo’s, the might of the Crab is in their Bushi. A lone Crab Bushi’s first thought when they are attacked by an Oni isn’t one of glory, it is to raise the alarm so that when they inevitably fall the rest of the Crab will be ready. While the Crab are occasionally scorned by the other Clans for their brutishness and lack of manners, it is not due to a lack of culture but instead a determined focus on their duty to protect the empire.

Colm “Colabear” Brophy, Eoin “Hida O-Win” Burke, Justin Walsh and Barry “Bazleebub” Sheppard discuss the latest news of the L5R LCG.

In this episode we look at the Dragon Clan, discuss Hida Kisada, and chat about tournament ettiquette.

Had a bit of trouble with the audio recording but hopefully got it tidied up, but I was hearing an echo which caused me to stumble quite a bit.

Clan Focus – The Lion

Clan Focus – The Lion

The Lion clan are famous for their prowess on the battlefield and their uncompromising adherence to the code of Bushido. In the last few weeks, we’ve seen the majority of their cards from the base set and have had an opportunity to play some games with the Lion deck facing up against the previously revealed Crane deck. This has given us some insights into how the Lion clan play and also some of the intricacies of the game overall. Join with me as I go through each of the revealed cards and discuss their implications for the Lion.

The Perfect Turn

The Perfect Turn

We have now seen an almost full set of the Crane Dynasty and Conflict cards. The reality, however, is we still have no real idea how to play this game. I don’t mean the rules, we might be missing a small detail here or there, but we have a decent idea of the rules. I mean actually making decisions during the game, what cards to recruit, how much Fate to spend, where to assign, etc.

Kakita Asami by Mario Wibisono

Recently FFG released a big preview for the Crane Clan faction of the upcoming L5R LCG. Based on some excellent detective work on the FFG forums, we believe we are only missing a character from the Dynasty deck which is thought to be some sort of Daidoji Archer and a character from the Conflict deck believed to be called Political Rival. So right now we have a pretty good idea of what the Crane clan will look like. We are still missing most of the neutral cards, and cards which are courtier or duelist specific might change how we see the existing card pool. It is, however, a good start.
