The New Order

Home of the Crane Clan has a new owner!



My name is Trevor Cuba. As of this week I have taken ownership of this website. The first thing I want to do is thank John Pope, the original owner and operator of this website, who has continued to keep this place up and running despite no longer being an active participant in the game. He did it all for us and we should be grateful for that.

And now his watch has ended.


First thing I want to say is that I am no one special. I’m not one of the 15 year veterans of the game, no big tournament wins, barely any recognition with the L5R community at all. A call was made for a new owner, and I answered. But, I am not unfamiliar with community management or forum operations. I have done this before and have a clear vision of how to get this community up and running again.

Lets not fool ourselves. The L5R online community is in a pretty rough spot right now. However, I have seen a noticeable upswing in activity this year. The CCG is relatively well balanced, a new Story team has hit the ground running, and big events like Winter Court 4 has really shaken things up. If ever there was a time get thing moving again, that time is now.

My part in all of this is to make sure that this website is a fun and safe environment for for everyone who visits, with a primary focus on helping new players better understand the game. is the go to place for people to learn about L5R and the Crane Clan in all its shapes and forms. It is now my job to make sure that this is most enjoyable environment for you that I can. The only thing I ask of you, our members and guests, is to come in, have some pleasant conversations, and have a good time. Welcome, to


…….Now if I can just figure out how to get the chatrooms back up 😆
