Legend of the Five Rings – Prologue Part 5

Hello!
Welcome to Part 5 of the Prologue of our Legend of the Five Rings (L5R) series!  Alex, Kaetlyn, Kolton, and Matt played in this series and Colin acted as GM.

At the beginning of every session of the Legend of the Five Rings series, we played out the events of a prologue story with a second set of characters. You are about to listen to part of that story.

Today the the Samurai Hida (played by Matt) and Matsu (played by Kaetlyn) stand in opposition to Asahina (played by Alex) who desperately seeks a way to either cure his companions of the Shadowlands Taint or to convince his comrade Mirumoto (played by Kolton) that they need to act to stop their allies from enacting some terrible plan before it’s too late…

We hope you enjoy it as much as we did!

The Pun-O-Meter is at 2 today after a long stint at 1 due, mostly, to Kaetlyn’s undying love of bad word-play.

Today we set forth into the Shadowlands and the Samurai have some feelings about that whether they’d admit that or not.

This episode is somewhat shorter than usual, so thank you for bearing with us through that.

Legend of the Five Rings – Prologue Part 1

Hello!
Welcome to Part 1 of the Prologue of our Fantasy Flight Games Legend of the Five Rings (L5R) series!  Alex, Kaetlyn, Kolton, and Matt played in this series as Shinjo, Doji, Shiba, and Kakita, and Colin acted as GM.

At the end of our last session (that’s session 09 if you’re keeping track), you will have heard that we introduced some characters that our players and myself seemed to be very familiar with. That’s because at the beginning of every session, starting with Session 02, we’d been doing a prologue with a second set of characters. This is part of the reason why there have been only two sides to our Sessions for this series so far; now you’re going to get your side C’s as we finally let you all in on this secret part of the story!

Please join us as we take you back in time and introduce the other characters the players an I have been talking about so we can let you guys know what’s been going on with those new characters are! So, please welcome the new cast of Samurai to the story, and please listen as they get a very important mission from a very high ranking official in the Empire.

We hope you enjoy it as much as we did!

Legend of the Five Rings – Session 08 Side B

Hello!
First, allow me to apologize about the lateness of this episode. Colin has been going through some changes with his day job schedule which made the publication this week slightly delayed. This should not be an issue going forward however.
