legend of the five rings [interest check]
« on: February 27, 2012, 02:43:28 PM »
I've been enjoying a game of L5R recently and am playing with the idea of starting a game. Or if I am extremely lucky finding someone else to run a game for me.

I would presume because of the basis of the game, it would have little in the way of sexual content. But it will still be possible, and as I write this I can think of a few ways to use sex in game. So really, up to the people that are interested.

Alright, that is plenty of interest to start a game.

scale of 1-10, do you want sex in game?
 scale of 1-10, if there is sex how much?

also, if I am to be running it, then it will be an alternate reality. Because i have the first four books but I haven't read them all yet, and if anyone in game is as exposed to the system as some of the people in my RL group then my responses to lore checks will not measure up.

So I assume no rokugani history buffs?

answer the 20 questions, it will make it easier to craft a story you will all enjoy.

Are we using the new 4th edition rules? 

As for the history buff part, I know some things.  I own almost every published book of the 1st edition of L5R and every book published for 4th edition.  Yeah, I love Legend of the Five Rings. 

What time period are we looking at for the game to be set in? 

Wan sex in the game: 6
How much: 4

Sex is fun, but I find that it bogs down a game very quickly as well all have to pull out the popcorn to watch.  Sex is great for tension, great to lower boundaries on what can be written, but aside from that its sort of meh.

I would also like to try for some type of Iaijitsu duelist.  For starters I love the mystique of them and also because this allows an element of politics that can come in play, since a duelist always gives weight to words.  Plus this would allow for politics without detracting from combat effectiveness.

Was wanting to ask the same thing?

As for sex question.

Sex in the game: 5

How much: 3

Just dont see Five Rings being like that but I know I could be wrong as it mostly the char point of view, as for char I also have char idea I have been wanting to do.

I believe fourth edition is the ony edition I know, with the imperial histories being the only update I don't own.

Looks like the three responding so far have the same idea as me about sex in rokugan. will explain more when i have more time.
short version- dangerous beauty

as for politics and time setting, I will have a short write up soon.

duelist is certainly worthwhile character in these times.

If nobody else wants to make a bid for the duelist spot, then I will start trying to write something up.   Crane is the obvious choice, though a Scorpion duelist could certainly be interesting.

Do you deny that your Mistress was seen leaving a room with five other men as testified to by members of this court?...:: glances back at the Scorpion who is busily winking and smiling at the magistrate::

I..err..ummm...she...is very ..umm..honorable?

Oh, she was helping them with their inquiries..I can understand how keeping our beloved Empire running can be ardurous,, so she was doing what she could to lighten their load, and ease their burdens.. It can be so....hard... to have the stress of keeping the peace when there are so many less then honorable folks who would do......... anything.... to subvert the way of things....

*smiles softly and fans herself, eyes gleaming under the domino style mask she wears*

Ok, NOW I am going to do it *giggles*

all three concepts are encouraged to move in to development.
having a scorpion in your group will certainly make the duelist very busy.

We are going to start  shortly before Winter Court. The player characters will have been hand selected to group up and investigate rumors of unrest in the village chosen to host the event. I have a plan and a general idea of what will take place, but will mostly build the world based on actions you all take and letting them radiate outward. At start, no wars are currently in progress but tensions aplenty. 

And the conversation you ladies just had pretty much sums up implementation of sex in rokugan.
I don't get on as much as i used to, so any one off sex scenes will fade to black.
Anything done in front of the group will be played out quickly. [I'll send you a handful of rolls and the npc's intentions, you roll and respond accordingly.]
Anything between player characters, discuss what the end result will be and pm me. you have until my next post to finish, therwise fade to black or separate thread.

Also for sake of game staying active, After three days I will assume your action/response is 'do nothing, say nothing'.
[please put indicators on whose responses you are waiting on, don't want two payers being forced to 'd nothing' because they are waiting for someone ese to post first.]

i.e. I ready my katana and look to the moto with a nod, his plan his move. [Waiting on GM and Jared. If the moto doesn't make a move, I take a defensive stance]
