So who is the best clan? Tell me your thoughts and why, there is a prize for the winner of my arbitrary decision for best reason.

Never got to play the card game, but the one time I did play the RPG I played a Moto Bushi. Being able to aim your bow is bad ass.

I like the way Daigotsu handles the shadowlands. I do like them Oni but the whole wanton destruction bit isn't as good as the masterful manipulation that Daigotsu wields.

What... no Toturi's Army or Monkey Clan options?

I would think that the answer to the question would be obvious: Dragon! Here are just a few reaons that the mountain dwellers are the Top Dawgs in Rokugan

1) Kakita said "One man. One sword One strike."
Mirumoto replied "Two hands."

2) Tattoos. They rock! Pray to Hitomi and gain the ability to spontaeously combust. This means that the Dragon not only have a monopoly on ise zumi, but we also have more motocycles and punk rockers. This, of course, brings us to:

3) Dragon have more celestial "bodies" than anybody else Sure... Crab got the sun, but Dragon have Lady Moon AND Hoshi, the "Celestial" Wanderer... Which brings us to:

4) Togashi Satsu rocks. Sure, Crab have their fortune and Phoenix have the Soul of Shiba... but Satsu is only 2 generations removed from being a kami himself AND he can turn into a freakin' dragon. Suck on that.

5) Finally, any samurai can pick up a sword and make a Crane feel like a fool on the battlefield, but it takes a Dragon to make them feel inferior just by talking in circles. Very Happy

Sheesh, I feel rather sheepish for having such a shallow answer. :Bows to Irongaze's superior post:

Edit: Not to mention kinda irrelevant since I've gotten my hands on the third edition rpg book. Can everyone get yeoman archery now?

Though technically they can, I don't allow anyone outside of the unicorn to have it without a proper reasoning. There are alot of things that are a little different than first ed l5r in the 3rd ed book but in general the only complaint that I have is that the new rules for ancestors suck something fierce(which the rules were posted on the l5r main web page), I liked the feel that the old ancestors gave because they were specific to each clan the new ones are just some new generic thing that works for very few character ideas, where you almost have to make up a reason to have one. But enough whining from me.

Don't think to much on Irongazes post he is a zealot and has afforded too much time into thinking how much his clan is (not) better than the others like crane. He is simply blinded to the awesomeness of the other factions, poor misguided fool that he is. Smile

If you have any other l5r rules questions of rpg or ccg in nature please feel free to create a thread and I will be happy to give whatever feeble knowledge I have in repsonse.

Hey... I liked the ancestor rules. The reason, you ask? Because you DO have to think up a reason to have one! I enjoy having my players add the depth to their character histories that is required to justify an ancestor.

And don't listen to Deadite. I could have given just as good of reasons why the Mantis, Ratlings, or even Crab are the best. I've just been reading Musashi too much lately, and I always willingly support any clan that could justify giving a card an ability like "Bow: Quote the Tao and eat a cookie." Plus... they took away my Toturi's Army back in Gold. Sad I hardly think that qualifies me as a zealot. On the other hand hand, mister "I have an Oni collection and have played Shadowlands since time immemorial... Shadowlands roxors!" probably qualifies as a zealot. Not that I am pointing any fingers. *points and whispers "tainted freak"*

Now if you need me, I'll be meditating and reflecting on the Tao.

Wow, the card game sounds like a blast. I'll have to look into it some day. Then again... I may get ripped on for using purple ponies. Very Happy

Hey you can use any deck you want to and as long as you don't play the woosy Toturis army then you have no worries for getting ripped on, since they suck something fierce with the biggest woose of all Toku.

But besides that I am looking at getting people together for the ccg, if you are interested in learning to paly and find out if you like the game then let me know I will throw together a pony deck for ya to use and we can go at it like proper samurai. I am happy to teach anyone how to play the greatest ccg ever.

Wow, I'd definitly be up for that if it wasn't too much trouble. Unfortunatly the only day I have free this week is the 3rd.

If that's a good day for you too just tell me a time and place and we can meet up for a game.

This wednesday I am meeting up with some guys down at merlyns to play l5r ccg at around 5pm, if you cant make that then I can meet you at merlyns around 4pm on friday. Though I am afraid you would have to use one of my non-unicorn decks since merlyns doesnt have one of the lotus starters in right now(its one of the starters I havent gotten yet).

Mike Green has my phone number down at merlyns if you wanted to call me and schedule something or just post here and let me know what you think.
