Character Creation Quick Summary
For those of you who have played previous editions of the Legend of the Five Rings Role-playing Game, the method of character creation will seem quite familiar, though there have been a few changes. If you are new to the game, please continue reading for a full explanation of every step in the process. Here is a quick summary:
1: PICK YOUR CLAN
2: PICK YOUR FAMILY
3: PICK YOUR SCHOOL
4: CUSTOMIZE YOUR CHARACTER
5: DERIVED ATTRIBUTES
Steps 1, 2, and 3 are relatively straightforward.
In Step 4, it’s important to note that anyone can earn extra starting experience by playing The Game of Twenty Questions.
I don’t enjoy restricting player options, especially in a game we haven’t really played before but I have a few.
1. If you’ve glanced at the database and are the least bit knowledgeable of L5R, you’ll notice a lack of information for the Spider Clan. The Spider Clan does not exist in the timeline in which the game takes place nor do they fit the theme of the game. If you haven’t figured it out yet, the Spider Clan is off limits to players.
2. Only one character may be a non-samurai monk. Monks throw a bit of a wrench in the game and while not strictly off limits I would prefer to limit their presence.
3. Please do not invite players without my express permission.
