L5R Topaz Championship-Interest Check
« on: January 02, 2011, 02:48:31 PM »
Hey all.  I am a big fan of the L5R setting and am considering a game starting with the Topaz Championship.  Ideally I would be one of two or more GMs, as I do well with the mechanics and organizing events, but not as well with plot construction.  Please post interest in being either a player or co-GM.

Once I get more people we'll talk about what kinda timeline is most interesting, and whether they prefer a specific period or "what if" type scenario

You might want to give a bit more information, for those not so familiar with L5R. What exactly is the Topaz Championship, and what would the players be doing?

Good point.  The Topaz Championship is a test/tournament held when a samurai in training is ready to demonstrate his skill.  It includes tests of knowledge, athleticism, and martial skill, and all who compete must do well enough to be deemed samurai.  In addition, the one who performs the best is named Topaz Champion, which is a great honor.

Players would be competing, though I would allow a small number of players to play evaluators (if a co-GM wished such a role).
