They'll keep you posted!

They directly contradict the Major Events Manager. Can we get someone to clarify the clarification?

Do you really think that everyone would have to pick the Dojo, the school(s) and the technique to save some core theme of their clan? I mean, if we save the Dueling academy, is it really necessary to also pick "Kakita Duelist School", "Single Strike Style", and perhaps even "Kenshinzen"? That would be really nasty IMHO.

Single Strike Style is probably a different way of discussing Kakita's technique, which is taught to all Kakita Bushi, but Kenshinzen is something separate from all that and would probably need separate saving.

Dave is the Brand Manager. Trust in what he says. And feel free to contact John Akey if you feel the need for further clarification!

Can somebody point me towards where Dave Laderoute and John Akey are allegedly contradicting Dan Dineen? I can't find it.

It's on the L5R Facebook group. Dave gives an example that the Scorpion will not just suddenly forget how to use the Bitter Lies technique just because the Mantis "control" it (and I would agree with Shiro that this contradicts Dan's l5r.com post stating that only the winning clan will have the taken Icon). Dave does also note that the condition may not be permanent, or terribly long-lasting (of course, we'll have a storm of complaints from the "stealing" clan when/if that happens).

I would note that Dave's description is more consistent with what Fred had said on the podcast, that the particular nature of the "hostile save" would be flexible.

Dave's clarification is the correct one. Trust that we aren't going to just utterly rip apart what makes a clan a clan.

But these choices are going to have huge impacts.

I don't want the Crane to burn the Kitsu Tombs to the ground. I want a Kakita to do something offensive to Lady Matsu's chambers before returning control to the Lion.

HA!

Alternatively: a Kakita walks into the room. Stands there for a while, not bowing. Leaves.
