Kakita Onimaru here. As many have no doubt heard by now, AEG has sold Legend of the Five Rings to Fantasy Flight Games and will be going into a 2 year hiatus. Announcement can be found here;
What does that mean? Well, no one really knows yet. As I understand it the details are still being worked out by the company’s. Anything beyond the information posted above is pure speculation at this point. But I will say this: Home of the Crane Clan is not going anywhere. So long as there is a community for the Crane Clan, old or new, I will do everything I can to keep these boards up and operational.
An L5R section for L5R has been added to the FFG forums here;
Already there is discussion being had about the future of the game. I encourage everyone to go there and let FFG know what it is you love about L5R and the Crane Clan in particular. I do not know what the future holds for the game, the clan, or the awesome community we have. But I want everyone to know that so long as there are people who love L5R and the Crane Clan, you will always have a home here.
