L5R Card Game: What can be taken for use in the RPG?

Post by Angel Tarragon »

Is there anything from the L5R card game that isn't present in the RPG that can be used in the Rokugan setting?

The First Edition Gamemaster's Survival Guide gave loose rules for converting personalities to RPG stats. It also went into how to interpret boosters from the CCG into plots and how to interpret different cards so you could make story desk on your own. The only other use I could see for the cards is for visual reference.

If you're talking about the LCG though, I'm of no help.

I assume you are talking about Legend of the Five Rings: The Card Game, from Fantasy Flight Games (rather than the classic Legend of the Five Rings CCG from AEG - which FFG discontinued after buying Legend of the Five Rings from AEG).

I've got a topic about the (older) Legend of the Five Rings CCG, although I've not learned too much about it yet.

I have heard, from Poi, that Fantasy Flight Games rebooted Legend of the Five Rings. So I'd like to see what sort of lore comes with each of the two card games and see if there are any obvious differences in the backstories of the individual clans.

There are some documents on the FFG page, I linked to, that might help you.

I'm interested in raiding ideas from the CCG to use with tabletop gaming.

I've copied the first part of your post into another topic (about the CCG).

I'd love to have more details over there, as I'm a bit clueless about technical CCG terms to search for on Interweb searches.
