Just a quick note to say sorry for not posting anything last week.
I do have a valid excuse as my phone line had been out of order for around three weeks and BT needed to dig up the road to make repairs. In doing so they inadvertently knackered my internet facility whilst tarmaccing, meaning i was internet-less for three days.

I will be posting a bumper tournament results section today to catch up

Hi! Its time for another blog about Legend of the Five Rings from me, Matsu Mokashi (or David to those who don’t know me through various L5R sites) and this time I am picking the Crane clan and trying my best to come up with a deck all by myself again. My idea with this deck is to be able to switch between honour and military through duelling.

The debut issue of Brian Michael Bendis and Alex Maleev’s new creator-owned title is… well… exactly what you’d expect it to be. And yet I’m not sure what I make of it. Both creators are a solid bet and if, like me, you enjoyed their run on Daredevil or Spider-Woman, you sort of know what you’re going to get, but if you’re hoping to be startled by something entirely fresh and new, you may be a little under-whelmed.

Considering my love for the character it only seemed fair that I did the review of the re-launch of Green Arrow, albeit two weeks late. Sorry it’s short but I was trying to get the Yugi results, shipping lists and ebay stuff done at the same time. Regardless of the interiors though, how wow is the Mario Cascioli cover.

Continued good turnout as we’ve had 20 and 28 people to the last two events, pretty darn good. Congratulations to Sam Pearson and Abbi Froude for bagging the tournament victories. In Abbi’s case it was a bit of a swan song as this was her last event as she is moving to Leeds.

Hi, I’m David (Matsu Mokashi to those who know me through L5R websites) and I have been asked to write up a little something about each clan and how things stand after the latest L5R set, The Plague Wars.

Having talked this over with Graham (Mr. Grinning Demon himself) it seemed like a good way to do this would be to pick an archetype deck for each clan and then comment on it, and, seeing as I have had the most experience with Lion, I believe I will start there and I will even write up my own deck list.

The deck type I am looking into is the Naked Lion build which traditionally relies on cheap personalities with good effects and a fate deck filled out with proactive battle actions. This set has carefully placed a few spanners in the spokes of the traditional Naked Lion build which would run out mostly (if not all) six cost and lower personalities, which with a fast enough deck, you probably could still plough through and keep a good tempo going but I decided I would try something a little different just to see how exactly it goes… read on.
