Sort of an interest check. I love L5R as a player, but don't know the lore and history well enough to run a game. So, send it to space with some strong star wars influence. But, the lore will not follow directly either one.
Essentially, make a L5R character. Certain aspects will be adjusted for sci-fi and space. Katana becomes lightsaber, clan lands become planets, The dragonfly inhabit a moon that orbits the Dragon home planet. Ronin travel in wandering transport ship colonies [like Tali'zorah from mass effect] etc.
Feel free to make substitutions on character sheets for a space epic, but stay within the basic outline of the character.
If I can get reasonable interest, and you can keep the character creation process simple, I think it might work out.
40 xp to start. I will want the twenty questions before we get too far into the story, but not before submitting a character or even necessarily, before we start.
