On Provinces

One of the most consistent questions I get from players that want to be competitive is what provinces to expect when they attack another clan. Which province you select can make or break the conflict so it is understandable why players want all the information they can get about this subject. Knowing which provinces your...

Fate Has No Secrets Review

Another week and another set of cards. 6 by 6 is almost over and I am preparing to hear complaints about how "stale" the meta has gotten ever since cards are not added to the pool on a weekly basis anymore. On the other hand it might give Jigoku time to catch up so we... Continue Reading →

Into the Forbidden City Review

My last outstanding pack review before I can get back to a more normal writing schedule.

With 5 different rings each with different effects you can see how daunting it must be for anyone. We haven't even added the extra variables of the 2 different conflicts... Continue Reading →

The New Roles and You

Worlds is over and we now have a new Shogun. Lion stands triumphant over all the other clans. The results are not surprising. If you have read my previous articles I already predicted either Crane or Lion would win with the edge going to Lion because they have a better match up against Crane. The... Continue Reading →

L5R Deckbuilding: Unicorn

Ahh Unicorn. The self-loathing samurai of Rokugan. Unicorn clan players are almost uniformly more downcast about their clan than other players and not without reason. They are similar to the Phoenix players of the old universe who always assumed they would lose at the end of the arc even when the current fiction showcased them... Continue Reading →
