So, ignore the Topaz Championship that I ran a while ago. I'll throw up a proper outcome of that later (none of the PCs won, though they did all come pretty high up in the rankings). After the Topaz Championship, the three Crab PCs were given honour guard duty - the niece of Hida Kisada … Continue reading The Samurai Wedding adventure recap, part 1

L5R 4E Topaz Championship session 2

More ideas clamouring for attention

So here's a little overview of what's currently bubbling in my head:A game set in a world where the Roswell Incident was the site of Earth's first extraterrestrial encounter, not a crash.

Setting as yet unrevealed

I've been working on a blog post for a while about the sci-fi setting I have in my head. Unfortunately, it gives away far too much about the setting because it says which novel series I'm ripping off. And then the players would be able to research things.
