I  was curious if there is any interest out there for the L5R RPG open Beta coming soon.  https://www.fantasyflightgames.com/en/legend-of-the-five-rings-roleplaying-game/products/legend-five-rings-roleplaying-game/

Well I signed up for it, will see if I get chosen. I did the Dark Heresy 2nd Beta so if its like that only one person needs to get access for the group.

So I got chosen to assist in the beta. I  didn't realize  I could  have  downloaded  the game all this  time, this really  is  a very  open beta! I am glad I remember having to  buy the "beta" for Star Wars Edge of the Empire.  Who would be interested in doing a character creation workshop?

Sounds good!  I'll plan to be there. 

Are there resources I'll need . . . pen, paper, dice, printouts?

You will probably want to download the rules on to your phone or print them out (its a full book don't recommend that). Pencils are always nice, but I will print out character sheets and have pencils too. The store has an electric pencil sharpener also.

Downloaded and ready . . . super disappointed in the lack of Unicorn schools . . . requesting now to be able to choose another Clan's bushido school for a unicorn samurai . . .

Yeah I was hoping for the Kuni Witch Hunters for Crab, but I  recall them coming out in a different book back in 3rd. I will have to double check if  that is allowed in the rules, if it is  sure.  We are doing a play test of  the rules so trying to stick to them as closely as possible to provide accurate reporting.

Oh yeah - I totally understand!!  I am imagining my Unicorn samurai with gaijin-like features (call them French) from the Ivory Kingdoms, a descendant from a union forged for peace dating back 400+ years during the Unicorn tromp through foreign lands.  His features are a result of that union despite the distance in time from the event . . . Of course, he's not much of an archer, and fights with a scimitar (over his daisho) that looks an awful lot like an English broadsword - a very unconventional samurai in a world of stoic non-deviance . . .

The Unicorn are great for that. One thing I really like so far in the new system is that the backstory of  the character  and the mechanics mesh really well, though I think L5R has always done a  good job with that . You  could also justify being from a different  school because of some sort of hostage arrangement.

Reminder, Noon is the time. Daylight Savings occurs also so turn back your clocks!
