Character creation

Postby Calliesky » Mon Feb 13, 2012 10:32 pm

For those already considering character creation the following is a very generic description of the types of characters available. Soon we hope to have more specific information released about families and schools, once play testing is complete.
For now take a look at the info post about each of the playable clans, and consider these three types of character classes. All will be available in each clan, with special abilities linked to that clan's culture.

    Bushi – The clan’s primary warriors, they focus their training on the martial arts of various weapons and armour use so as to defend their clan from those that might attack.
    Shugenja – Those with the unique connection to the elemental Kami, they focus their training on strengthening their bonds to the Kami so that they may call upon them protect their clan without needing to don armour or pick up a sword. Thus at most Shugenja only carries a samurai's wakazashi for ceremonial purposes, and may call on a champion if challenged to a duel of swords.
    Courtier – Those that fight wars of words not of arms, they focus their training on social etiquette and the dealing of bequeathed favours to meet their ends and win wars, never needing to see the brutality of armed combat. A courtier might carry a wakazashi for ceremonial purposes, but may call on a champion if challenged to a duel of swords.

 For more info on the clans and family history's please see AEG's Legend of the Five Rings roleplaying source books and novels etc. Use them for flavour and and general background, but please remember that our game will be set in the year 1120, and some history and specific events may be altered somewhat from standard canon.
