I wanted to go with something simple, and melee characters are usually the easiest to make. If I go Dragon, my character isn't just focused on duels but fighting close combat in general. Plus the small amount of social stuff.

 Crane would be a bit less of general combat (no defense skill) but a bit more of social. And I was planning on taking Sacred Weapon.

If you don't mind a random comment dropped in, having a shukenja in the party really helps. If you've not played before, combat in L5R is pretty lethal, and having someone who can instantly heal is REALLY useful :)

Based on my experience, there will be swordplay, character death, strange creatures, non-consent and bondage.
 [If anyone has a problem with seeing this happen, make it known. If it is merely a personal preference, can watch it but don't want it happening to you, pm me.]

As such I think I'll be posting the game threads in Extreme.

That's alright with me.

What about two characters being betrothed to one another, with neither happy with the arrangement?

Make sure you both take bitter betrothal.

 Alright. I would have thought having two players take Bitter Betrothal be a bit of loophole abuse with disadvantages ^^'

 If Pumpkin goes with an investigator or Shugenja, then I can go back to my original idea.... Which means back to the drawing board for the character sheet >.<'

*grins at Pumpkin*

Although my scorpion might be sad.. she loses a Crane who she can get to defend her, and in return gets a Crab whose first, second, and third reaction will be to smack her upside the head with a tetsubo should she get all Scorpiony :D :D

 Nah, you won't lose a Crane Allie. If Pumpkin doesn't go Kakita, I would be. The Dragon was my backup idea. :P

As long as no mention is made about her eye :P

I plan on taking evil eye for her. Her left eye is going to be green while her right is gray-blue.

Alright, I am instituting 'attention check'. If you are playing, I need a character sheet in my 'hand' [pm], within three days.

There will be time to alter, I'm just making sure we can get things done in a quick and orderly fashion.

Will see about puting the finel finishs on my char sheet, wanted to ask if I could make my char War Fan a INHERITANCE to use with one of my chars non-combat skills?

As for the Crab hitting the Scorpion dont think that be happening as he more use her then hit her, Scorpion are not the only ones that are skilled in the courts. ;)

 The mechanical part to Yamagi should be finished. I will work on the background/personality/description now. I know I've got 11pts worth of disadvantages, but I only included 10pts in calculations.

 Let me know if I messed anything up on the mechanical part. And I'm not sure exactly what the drawbacks of Evil Eye would be >.>

Finally got my books out of my car, just in time to respond to that question.

The evil eye is a sign of  bad fortune. The master craftsman of your clan would not entrust a sacred weapon to someone with such a mark.
