    I kinda love that the adventure is designed around a TPK happening, and is for dead PC’s.

    Forgery, because Scorpion needed another good cancel. :x

    At least this one has a actual fate cost this time. Who knows, maybe the other will end up getting banned...

    Also new fiction day:

    Oh hey, new alternate format announced: Skirmish. Focused on bringing playtime down to around 20 minutes.

    This is super exciting. I only skimmed the rules but the length and complexity of the base game is one of the reasons I haven't even tried to really teach it to anyone. This looks to make it faster and more simple, but also can act as a gateway to the full game.

    Not that there's a lot of OP at the moment, but the Rules Reference and Restricted List got updated.

    Things of note:
    City of the Open Hand: Errata rolled back, now on Restricted.
    Kuroi Mori: Unrestricted, errata'd so that it can't be a Stronghold province. (Will be getting a updated version in a OP kit.)
    Secret Cache: Unrestricted.
    Duty: Restricted
    Void Fist: Unrestricted
    Spyglass: Banned (in a attempt to curb tower decks)
    Those Who Serve: Cannot reduce a character's cost below 1.

    Oh hey, we’ve gotten two fictions over the past week. Caged Birds and Violence Behind Courtliness.

    Is skirmish fun? I looked into it a bit and stripping out the strongholds and provinces seemed like losing some fun, but vastly shorter game time does seem interesting to me.

    Although, the other problem is that the scene totally died out here and buying back in would mean like, two cycles at least.

  • PMAversPMAvers Registered User regular
    It sounds fun, although I havn’t had a chance to actually get it to the table yet. Mostly waiting on Jigoku to update supporting it without it crashing the server due to no stronghold.

    Speaking of hell freezing over, the Hall of Heroes updated.



    There’s a indefinite freeze on Hatamoto titles due to the lack of events due to some jerk opening a Black Scroll.

    Holy hell.

    The latest pack, Honor in Flames?

    It introduces Maho. I think there's 1 for each clan.

    All of them have the same restriction - you pay for it using fate from your own characters. Which is INSANE and thematic.

    I haven't been keeping up with the fiction, sadly. I really need to do that.

    Yeah, this whole cycle is all about the maho. Lots of interesting ways to use a character's fate!

    I do like the themes of temptations. Like the Dragon dealing with ordinary characters, representing the heretical sect. Or the lion getting benefits for having high honor. Haven't figured out all the temptation themes, but it's a wild cycle.

    I miss playing this, even if I suck at it. :(
