Default L5R: Full Metal Nostalgia

The pitch for a game of Legend of the Five Rings I will be running this autumn:

The characters are all old samurai and about to retire from samurai life and become monks. However, one final adventure has gathered them together. Before they set off to save the empire one more time, they sit and recount adventures old and recent, to better help them in the trials to come. The campaign will therefore be an a series of extended flashback sequences that will cover around twenty years of their lives, with jumps of around five years in between each of the stories. Four mini-arcs will take place in flashback, the final adventure will be "in real time".

I will be allowing the players a few extra benefits because of the format. For instance they will get a few times each story arc where they can alter a fatal event by remembering it differently (a sword strike misses when it hit originally), which im calling the Rashomon effect.

That sounds pretty cool. Always have had a soft spot for L5R, even though I've not played it as much as I would like.

Oh, that's a really good idea for a mini-campaign. I love it!

Much-delayed, but I really like this idea. The Rashomon reference is the icing on the cake.
