I know that I’ve written a lot about the Legend of the Five Rings RPG before, so many of those who have been with this blog know that that game is one of the most seminal influences to my GMing career. Now, after what feels like a long time, I’m going to be back in Rokugan, but this time as a player in a game.
Fellow GM Sheimaruen will be running the game, with the premise that he’ll start off before the events of the Scorpion Clan Coup, and spin things off from there. From what I know so far, his intention is to run a game that centers on the characters, so having characters with a well thought-out background will be essential to get the most of the campaign.
For this game I’m looking at making a character that belongs to the noble Lion Clan. Peerless warriors that adhere to a somewhat inflexible form of Bushido, the Lion Clan extols courage in the face of danger. Furthermore the Lion boast of having the most talented tacticians of the empire as well as having the largest army, making the idea of angering them as a Clan a suicidal notion to most other Clans.
I’ve not gotten everything down just yet, but I will be posting my character as soon as I’m done putting it together. That said I’m gunning for a Matsu Berserker, but I don’t have a full concept in my head yet. Since the game kicks off in the first weekend of March, that gives me a bit of time to think of a backstory.
Definitely looking forward to it
