Once more /l5r/ is upon us as FFG releases another preview of the forthcoming LCG reboot of the card game: https://www.fantasyflightgames.com/en/news/2017/7/26/keepers-of-harmony/

This thread is for the discussion of the upcoming LCG, the old CCG, and any edition of the RPG you so happen to play or are interested in.

Discussion starter: The Phoenix being the control faction seem confirmed, but I didn't expect their glory linked effects. How do people feel about this latest preview in relation to the other high glory/honoring everyone clan we've seen so far, the Crane?

I mean there's a lot to like about most clans, but when I first got into the game right around when the 4th edition hit the amount of Crab dick stroking was insane. It wasn't just Crane hate. It eventually died down to more normal levels but still was kind of weird. Did something happen in the CCG around that time that brought them out of the woodwork?

Also RIP in peace, new Crab waifu. You lasted one story.

There's not much for the Daidoji to feel like a unique deck style just yet. I figure they might be an option for later Crane decks via the monthlies.

The named Kakita duelist character has an ungodly 'send your army home' duel mechanic though which is great. Honor him and slap a fine katana on and he'll be 7 military, and you can get that to 12 via a full bid of 5 in the duel.
Also we have Duelist Training which has little influence pips meaning it can be splashed into other decks if you lack any native dueling options (The only other one we've seen so far is a Dragon one).

Must have been some newbie tournaments (or good PanO players), because PanO can be strong, but has pretty obvious and glaring weaknesses and is geared toward one tactic: outshooting the other guy.
If they can close the distance, 9 times out of 10 they're fucked. The 1 time is when you're playing nothing but knights.

As for Croc Man and Tech-Bee: Croc is one of the staples, though personally I usually go for either a Hacker or an FO, sometimes Boarding Shotgun, and leave a Nisse to sniping duties. Hexa Sniper is also a good alternative, as Croc has to pay extra for Infiltration, which lets him get close (not really useful for a sniper). But it doesn't mean Sniper Croc is bad.
As for Tech-Bee, she's a must have in a TAG list and she works well with Joan, but otherwise she's simply a super cheap Specialist (you need those to grab objectives). It's a fun piece.
We had the same asshole coming here asking about which army was the best win-ratio-wise, and how he would only play the faction that was more or less guaranteed to win.
And then he might go on about playing for money.
Suffice to say, people are sick of that by now.
>Thanks man
Whoa there, that was a joke, I thought you were baiting. Neoterra starter is shit, mediocre at best. If you want actual not-trolly advice:
- PanO in general: Fusiliers box, Auxilia, drones (basic sensor + reaction and the ones with ODD), Black Friar MR (but you've got a Nisse so low priority). There's lots more decent options, those are just the most obvios one that jumped to me (disclaimer, not PanO player).
- vanilla: Crocman combi (or convert a sniper).
- for Neoterra: Auxilia, Hexa sniper to cut down the barrel and make a hacker or Locust, Auxilia HMG (expensive with Swiss tho). Grab the CSU from Beond Red Veil (swap for ABH with a Yu Jing player if needed)

Oh, and if someone offers you a cheap Limited Edition Joan (cheap = less than 200% of a normal blister's price), grab her. It's hands down the best sculpt and it's not available normally.
Also, Neoterra has access to Aleph Devas which are fun, especially with their bots. Because the one thing that sectorial needs is more G: Synchro.

The first list I think all of your main group orders are going to go into the Intruders or the Tomcat so I would switch the HMG alguacil to another missile launcher. I also don't like the lone wildcat engineer so I would switch that out for Lupe and upgrade the Tomcat to an Engineer.

I don't like the 2nd list too much. What is your 5man link going to do? They only have combi range except for a panzerfaust.

Bistromathics, get it right.

But yes.
The wiki has bistromathics link to bistromatics and I didn't care enough to dig out my copy.
So, from Wikipedia, we get this quote from Life, the Universe, and Everything: "Bistromathics itself is simply a revolutionary new way of understanding the behaviour of numbers. Just as Albert Einstein's general relativity theory observed that space was not an absolute but depended on the observer's movement in space, and that time was not an absolute, but depended on the observer's movement in time, so it is now realized that numbers are not absolute, but depend on the observer's movement in restaurants."

I'm pretty sure it's bistromathics but now I kinda want to find my copy of the book and check, if I knew where it was. Still, doesn't matter, Klingon warp drive works on exactly the same principles.
Dilithium exists in 4 dimensions, I think.

And I should perhaps mention that composite iron/steel blades would have been created by forge welding the bits together, the Chinese bimetal bronze swords would apparently have been made by first casting one part, and then inserting that part into a mold for the completed sword and pouring in the second alloy (add extra steps as necessary for any decorations).

My friends and I tend to ignore it whenever we play. It's tedious to keep up with, and adds an extra layer of random luck of a game that already uses so much of it.
The army builder has always had fucked up factions. Just using the armies I personally play as examples, Disciples of Tzeentch is split into two factions despite being listed as one on GW.com and Hosts of Slaanesh is categorized as Daemons of Slaanesh while all the mortal Slaanesh units are in the Chaos Mortal category instead of being part of the Hosts.

Use the warscrolls and ignore the categories on the army builder.

Thank you for reminding me why I moved back to the states.
This is some funny shit.

We have TV-licensing in Sweden too, but the people who are meant to go out and check people who aren't paying for it and likely have a TV aren't allowed to enter you home even if you invite them in. Of course, they come up with other ways to try to make you pay the TV license, but they're more silly than anything else.
Joking aside, people need to realize that cyberpunk is now. That world came true.

Maybe there isn't neon everywhere, and maybe real-world economics means there are hundreds of mega-corps, not just a handful. But thats superficial

The distinction between state and private interests is ever-increasingly blurred. Giant corporations try and look friendly and subversive while pushing a spiritually bereft agenda. Politics is increasingly less left-right and more global-local/corporate-populist.

Consumerism is culture. People are obsessed with identity superficially. But their concern is with self-expression rather than character. Increasingly celebrities are disappearing, while micro-fame on youtube etc. can be monetized via sponsorships and ad revenue. Identity is literally a product...

I could go on. But London, Berlin, et al are cyberpunk dystopias today. Humanity lost, lets hope some AI ends us soon.
>.. practically every job is unionized (they run like megacorps and are almost as unscrupulous)

They'd be worse, they'd be massive, utterly corrupt self serving monsters only held back by the fact that they are constantly flip flopping between fighting with and gobbling bribes from every major corporation in their sector.

Imagine a micro oligarchic state choked by a tide of bureaucracy and armies of comfy officials squatting at every position for life. An entrenched elite spends most of its time keeping up appearances while they kill, bully or shame any up-and-coming idealists out of the union and thoroughly corrupt the rest into copies of themselves (already happens). A vast membership pool that that pays taxes to the union, these people are 99% of all the people employed or even licensed to work in the sector the union deals with. They have monopoly on the workforce, anyone who isnt a member isnt allowed to practice their profession as all regulating, educating and licensing is directly or indirectly controlled by the union, anyone who wishes to work has to join the union and pay or the union will blacklist them and force any prospective employer to reject or fire them. The ground level workers can all be drafted into a massive militia should any conflict escalate to 'strike' levels, funded by the vast wealth the organization seeps up during 'peace time' in the form of membership payment, corporate fines and fat bribes. The only thing keeping it in check is the fact that it's constantly fighting the various corporations to whom it provides a workforce, and they in turn play this lumbering corpulent beast against one another.

On the one hand, they maintain some semblance of worker rights but mostly to justify taking further advantage of the very people they are meant to represent.

Apparently not since most things only seem to give a shit about "supernatural" abilities.
Ki is supernatural after a very short point in time. It's pretty explicit about that.
The Inquisition makes little distinction between Ki and Magic if you're making a showy display of it in public. The fact that it isn't TECHNICALLY supernatural doesn't matter to the average person, which means it doesn't matter to the Inquisition because it's their job to prevent the plebs from realizing that they're living in an anime and not medieval Europe.
Because of animas shaky translation there is both Supernatural as the description for magic/zeon fuled powers, and then Supernatural to just mean anything non mudane. There's a bunch of abilities that specifically say they work on ki/magic/psionics with a superior but more costly version that just works against the supernatural, with the "see supernatural" perk being the most obvious

ITT we talk about AD&D and how it compares to other editions.

I can confirm it. If you use any element of your old class (thac0, saves, etc) you get no experience for the encounter and half for the adventure. You CAN do it, mind you, but you are admonished not to because it represents your character slipping back into his old ways, like a class isn't so much a job but a lifelong pursuit and philosophy and encompassing two is just really hard for humans.
>I can confirm it.
You can with a quote.

>"This is not to imply that a dual-class human forgets everything he knew before; he still has, at his fingertips, all the knowledge, abilities, and proficiencies of his old class. But if he uses any of his previous class's abilities during an encounter, he earns no experience for that encounter and only half experience for the adventure. The only values that can be carried over from the previous class without restriction are the character's Hit Dice and hit points. The character is penalized for using his old attack or saving throw numbers, weapons or armor that are now prohibited, and any special abilities of the old class that are not also abilities of the new class. (The character is trying to learn new ways to do things; by slipping back to his old methods, he has set back his learning in his new character class.)"

From 2e PHB.

that sure is a lot of artistic jacking off to a gaggle of races that're only there because they're there.

I mean why aren't dragonborn codification for human greed and arrogance or teiflings reflection on mens hubris?

And you're gonna tell me that elves have never just been fetish fuel for ANYONE? On /tg/. The place where elf slave wat do is a meme.

> Also, such PCs are expected to be foreign buggers who raise eyebrows wherever they go.

I've honest to god never seen anyone play races like that. Maybe in like super low fantasy or actual Tolkein games but never in D&D.

Because the thing is: when you present something in the core book it's an assumed part of the setting. It's common. That's what people think when they see it. Elves and dwarves just hang around humans in D&D fantasy, because that's just how it is.

It helps that the Mile High club is a misnomer: planes fly 12 kilometres high.
A smidge under 6'1, 185.5 cm in metric. Well muscled though, not fuckhueg but definitely buff and cut. Got a pretty face too.

I've noticed I'm the only one who consistently makes my characters average to decently tall in my group. Everyone else makes either giants for whom 6'5 is the minimum or they play women.

Seriously our party looked weird as hell for a while, everyone but the girl was tall. My character was the middle in height. Three tallest party members were 7'2, 6'7, 6'5.

I am a faggot who will always maintain that the Steel Legion is based on a mix of all WW2 forces, particularly Brits and Germans. In the meh game, they had British accents, and most of them are recruited from hive gangs, which doesn't sound that strongly German.

Though frankly the main reason I argue this is because so many people consider them little more than discount Kriegers these days, and I want them to be distinct from the Deaf Corpse.
