Re: Destiny Has No Secrets

Ajisukitaka walks into Oni Mura, having walked a long distance from Scorpion lands. Glancing about in obvious irritation, I mutter to myself. Here? Seriously? That loon Dorai had best be on the level. Oh, who's kidding whom? Half of this fool mission is going to be full of lies. What's more, this pl...

The first answer

Ajisukitakahikone holds the bowl in his hand, the trail of water dampening his sleeve. Choking back a chuckle, he mutters, "and so that is the first answer. But it cannot be the last." Flames erupt from his hand, engulfing the bowl. Where once there was moisture, there is steam, the tongue...

The koan of a bowl

As Shosuro Kenshin passes by, ‘Hikone gets up, still seemingly distracted. “Kenshin-sama, do you have time to indulge in some crazed Dragon mutterings?” Ajisukitakahikone asks, with a wry grin. “I’m concerned that this mission may have been ... partially a failure." ‘Hikone returns to the fire,...

Though the journey has been uneventful so far, it seems that is ill comfort for some. One, in particular, wearing plain brown travelling clothes, walks through the camp. Though easily recognised as one of the Dragon Shugenja to anyone, samurai or otherwise, who was at Mimura, his weathered and minim...

Re: Short duration buff spells and you (rules proposal)

Another possible alternative? Ok, assuming all spell texts are kept the way they are. Let's say the target of a short duration buff has a 5m window, wherein they get to decide when to turn the effect on. "My sword is on fire!" (hehe) or a similar call. If this is the case, it would be more...

Re: Short duration buff spells and you (rules proposal)

Rules note: Spells and Touch "Areas and ranges of all spells correspond to one of the following: ... Touch – target(s) touched by the shugenja during casting. A spell packet should be used to actually touch the target(s)..." This is the work-around for the no touching rule. Actual contact...

Re: The penalties of non-magical healing (RP)

i played my 1st weekend event fro L5r last weekend and due to not having my armor complete on time had only 5hits, all of them damaging me. as a result i saw, bandages, magic and salves etc (from the old healer) bandages are good and i pretty much considered them a temporary measure and sought out ...

Re: The penalties of non-magical healing (RP)

I love it when that happens. Player: You should make the rules like this. Org: What? They already are. It always get a giggle out of me. I don't think this case is quite applicable, seeing as the issue at hand is that I'm healing doubles with a med skill of 1. Edit: In case I wasn't being clear (an...

Re: Short duration buff spells and you (rules proposal)

Although, both of these instances were when the call was "Shield Stun Earth 5," so it may have just been too much of a mouthful to bother. Wow, I would totally bother if someone could put that on me. Actually 30 seconds seemed like an incredibly long time in combat to me, but since actual...

Re: The penalties of non-magical healing (RP)

1) Needs must that there be some variation for LARP, I say. 2) But magic is FREEEEE and proper Water shuggies could be healing something like 5 HP eight times a day after two weekend events. 3) This is potentially a thing. 1) Agreed, which is why this thread is an RP thread, and not a rules suggest...

Re: The penalties of non-magical healing (RP)

There have been discussions about med kits being a little OP, being able to full-heal without penalties. That is not exactly the case, and especially for nobles unaccustomed to battle, it's actually quite ugly. Ew. Who is saying this? Clearly they do not remember the days of layered healing, the or...

Re: Short duration buff spells and you (rules proposal)

as I slap the target on the shoulder. :shock: No touching! Yo, spell is "range: touch" Also, I've already wrapped some 40 bandages on people. And, I've helped carry someone ... err, or I would have, if that wasn't ret-conned. A bit late for the no touching rule, don't you think? Edit: Ooo...

Re: Short duration buff spells and you (rules proposal)

Ok, so this thread has got me thinking. It's still early days, so it's quite possible the problem is just one of people knowing how to handle being buffed. (That is, we're noobs, me included, when it comes to coordinating spell effects) So, during weapons training on one of the day games I'll try m...

Re: Short duration buff spells and you (rules proposal)

You may be right - I wasn't really keeping count. Anyway, my point was not that the fire shugenja isn't an effective combatant, just that they're not head and shoulders above the other combatants, as you suggested earlier. I wasn't suggesting that at all. The average fire shugenja isn't OP, 'cos th...
