    I'm just using it as an "Introduce the characters" thing. I have no idea if that's what's supposed to be happening, but it is now.

    What edition of L5R are you guys rocking? If there was a spot or even a stand by, I'd totally be interested in knocking out a guy tonight after work. Also is there an Era? Is mantis now a major clan, or is this before the 2nd day of thunder?

    ~Thanks

    One spot one still open, its 1066 after the second day of thunder, reign of toturi the third. Also its third edition Unrevised, but they're mostly compatible from what i've seen so don't worry about it.

    You should take some sort of pacifist disadvantage just to mix things up. "Guys, stop beating that man's face in. Oh god, did you just rip off his arm? Now you're beating him with it?!"

    I'd like that compass to be worth a full koku. I'm not sure if that's all that valuable in terms of gift giving, but we don't know the status of our new master either.

    I assume that has to come out of my own pocket.

    The gift? Yes. But don't feel bad, basically bribes and gifts are all you really need to buy as a samurai.

    Sooo...I'm curious. How hard WOULD it be to swim with a Daisho? "Call an extra raise to not lose it" kinda deal?

    There is no swimming planned, well not in anything but the shallowest of water. But yes, an extra raise due to weight and clumsiness. TN 20 for staying afloat on a sta/athletics rolls

    A little drawing of the boat. Four beds at your disposal, Kenji will take one every night without really thinking about not taking one. (he can be persuaded to switch out if needed) The monk, who will absolutely not speak unless spoken to meditates at the foot of kenji's bed, or bedroll as the case may be.

    10 Ji-Samurai (no women, notably) crew the boat, Yoritomo Senzo, in case anyone was doubting it is a serious samurai type man like yourself. Are we all okay with skipping ahead a few day? i'll just slap on the next part of the post in that case.

    My thought is we're putting our lord at risk. If this is a peasant revolution, then it may be with the mayor's blessing. I'd like to be sure what going on before we try and kill the whole town.

    Was calling us "violent samurai" an insult - ie, would a TN20 Honor roll be required?

    While they were insulting, I'm not really sure any of us were specifically insulted. Which may be drawing too fine a line on it.

    I've a feeling Matsu Yuri would be more disgusted with their lack of honor than insulted.

    Hmm no i'd consider it more a somewhat accurate portrayal. Roleplaying your character the way you feel is more important. Though i suppose it does carry the implication that you're too free with violence. But nah no roll required.

    I made a shitty little map. You are currently near the lower right T (for town). After having had a near fight at the T in the village. The island is entirely surrounded by rock except for the beach where you landed, hence the easy blockade. Your characters saw this map on the boat, so you can orient yourselves by it etc.

    edit: actually the map is pretty badass.

    You can threaten with a katana, thats certainly honorable at this point as is jiujutsu. you'd get a free raise for jiujutsu, tn 15 to keep them apart long enough to talk sense into them.

    edit: agility+jiujutsu, for clarity's sake.
    edit: 2 : Intimidation with the katana is either awareness/deceit (no honor loss) or intelligence/kenjutsu (to know what to say while waving your sword around). tn 20

    So, let's look at this from an etiquette point of view.

    We're acting on the lord of this island's behalf to investigate the rice shipments.
    Besides for that, we have no real authority here and keeping the peace is the lord mayor's job right?
    So, the polite thing to do would be to ignore the outburst?

    Or am I way off on this line of thinking?

    Well they're already commiting a grievous breach of etiquette by brawling in the street. You'll well within your rights as a samurai to demand they stop unless they have a very very good reason for fighting. Getting involved right down to wrestling them might be undignified but is it a breach of etiquette? I think its up for debate.


    In any case its not your duty and any pressure you feel to get involved should only be from your character as a person. Kenji for his part isn't asking you to and he has no idea what, if anything you should do.

    From what I understand:

    Assuming these are peasants, as a samurai you have every right to just slaughter them if they're bothering you. It's considered slightly rude to go killing peasants for no reason, but its really not a big deal... Especially since we're working for the mantis right now.

    If you want to yell at them or physically separate them, you're well within your rights... And you don't have to ignore peasants if you don't want to. It's only samurai that you need to worry about ignoring outbursts from, since peasants dont have honour.

    edit- of course, you could totally ignore me and listen to CJ, instead :P
