So, we mentioned it, we got around to creating characters and what have they come up with...A well balanced group ? A group that symbolizes all the values of Rokugan ?
Don't make me laugh !!
Now that simply sounds mean and it shouldn't. They all more or less thought long and hard over certain aspects of their characters. Some good back storys come out of the Advantages and Disadvantages they have taken ( can you say Dark Fate ? ) but when you look deep down you see some of the same old things from other Rpg's creeping in.
Am i hard enough to kill it ? If not then how hard do i have to become ?
Anyhow..i digress...back to what they created, then we will look at their " backstorys "
First we start with the folks who have already played five rings
We have the usual Hida Crab with a chip on his shoulder against certain Clans. Why is it that you hardly ever see some Diplomatic Hida's or Hiruma's ? i mean, they can't all be wall walking die hard's can they ?
To join with this we have a Kuni, heading down the usual witchfinder route and carrying some usual baggage ( more to come on all that later )
A Tsuruchi, who will come across as quite the lothario in later episodes, not that he ever sees something coming until its too late..Never had one at the table before so was intrigued to see one.
Then we have the Crane, this time a Kakita. Is he a duelist ? of course ! is he swimming in a sea of his own importance ? of course ! Does he come with quite a few flaws ? what do you think ?
Then we come to the new guys at the table.....
