Re: Twenty Festivals part III - Letting Them Have Your Way

I am all for contingency plans, but I would prefer it if - for once - we would succeed with Plan A.

Re: Another Way - Proposals for Alternate Story Paths

Now, two of the tasks laid out in front of us seem force us to abandon our lands. That is rather extreme, but AEG has never shied away from disproportionately hurting the Crane, haven't they? If this is a repeat of 2KYD, we were DEAD in that alternative timeline. So, I think the message is that stay...

Re: Another Way - Proposals for Alternate Story Paths

Here's what I think. First, we should identify our needs, as we voiced in the "Concerns" thread. Then we should check whether the paths laid out in front of us take care of these needs. After we've done this, we should propose what a rational person would do. Questions that I have that nee...

Re: Another Way - Proposals for Alternate Story Paths

I'm going to type up something later once I digested this.

Re: The Left Hand's Path - Crane Story Paths

Number 2 is so close to what we want, but with an unsustainable Emperor... But then again, do we know if Kanpeki is even going to lose? If he's anything like his father, he goes up against nine clans and ends up ruling the universe. Number 1 is more about the Crane's phyrric victories. We're never g...

Re: Twenty Festivals part III - Letting Them Have Your Way

If we ever saw alliances matter in the way Natsuyo claims they do, we would be in a much better place.

Re: Twenty Festivals part III - Letting Them Have Your Way

I too tire of this sermon style of fiction. It became especially apparent when Kae thought she was tired to be treated like a student, and I thought "me too." There seem to be rational actors at work, so that's good. But at the same time this has no outcome at all, so you're setting the Cr...

Re: Other Clans' PATHs

We don't have to turn into the Spider in order to work with them. I think it is to be expected that there are fundamental differences between our clans. It should be noted, though, that there is a lot of common ground, too. That common ground would be "Pincer Alliance", "Traditionalis...

Re: Concerns With Crane Story Direction

Okay, here's my two cents. You make an artificial distinction between duelists and courtiers. I don't know why that is, but it's wrong. The courtiers draw a lot of their power (yes, even in the RPG) from the fact that their yojimbo can possibly outduel anybody else. I've used that to great effect as...

Re: Other Clans' PATHs

The Crane have never been presented as an enemy of the Spider. Not a friend of the Shadowland Taint (even though Dare is tirelessly working on it), but an enemy of the Spider they have never been. Some might argue that there's a faction among the Crane that has either been a mark or a covert ally of...
