Night Court, an L5R 4e play-by-post RPG

Postby Patchouli Knowledge » 08 May 2013 02:10

While I know that not everybody here is into tabletop gaming, much less the Legend of the Five Rings RPG specifically, a friend has been working on this game and I have been contributing to it as well.

Please check out the official announcement in the URL below. The game itself will still be some time off, but stay tuned to this thread as we release further info!

After receiving a healthy amount of questions from other places where we announced this game on, we have decided to open Night Court's OOC chat for pre-game discussions! Simply register with any username and wait for activation of your account and you may post on the OOC chat!

While chatting on Night Court's OOC board, you may work on your character and then e-mail them to us, and when your character is approved, we will change your username to the name of your character.

Perhaps a quick overview of what L5R is in the first couple of posts might help spike interest..? I'm fairly sure it's not exactly that common a system/setting, after all.

Let's see, how to describe L5R? It's basically a samurai roleplaying game set in the land known as Rokugan, a fantasy nation with a culture based on feudal Japan. It is a game full of both action and intrigue as samurai from different Clans constantly struggle against each other on both the battlefield and the courts.

Night Court itself is a game set in the 9th century of Rokugan's history, and while canonically, this period is a blank slate, we have taken the liberty of writing it out as a time of great political and spiritual turmoil. The land is divided by the religious crisis known as the Schism, as well as a succession crisis on who would succeed the current Emperor, Hantei XXVI.

To resolve the latter, the Emperor must father an heir. However, he has not succeeded with his Empress-Consort, nor with his current concubines. He now seeks to marry a new Third Concubine to obtain his heir and in his private villa known as Shika Kouen, the Clans are sending their finest maidens and courtiers to gain his favor.

If this sort of game is your cup of tea, please check out the previews linked on the first post and check out Night Court's forums itself!

For convenience, links to the previews on AEG's forums and Night Court's forums will be reposted here:
