Re: Shinjo Shono

Team him up with Utaku Infantry and some other guys watch them bounce all over the map.

Re: L5R - The Duty of War - A Post Winter Court 5 story

Kakita Karasu’s tent was modest in size, hardly what one would expect for the Emerald Champion. But it did make up for it with the few personal touches he had brought in over the years. Every summer he was based with the Legion he worked out of this tent, not just Legion business but the numerous du...

Re: L5R - The Duty of War - A Post Winter Court 5 story

Training in the cold light of the spring dawn was one thing, was something else entirely. And very unpleasant. Even with a straw cloak over his training clothes, Harun found it hard to keep dry. Water would get through, getting next to his skin while they ran drills on the training field. There was ...

Re: L5R - The Duty of War - A Post Winter Court 5 story

That afternoon, they rode into the encampment. The emerald green and gold banners had clearly been seen from a distance, as there were soldiers either side of them cheering and waving as they rode through. Harun grinned, but Karasu was ahead of him so Harun couldn’t see his reaction. Harun thought t...

I think this guy may be replacing his mum Altansarnai. He's our first card with Pride and he has Commander which may be of use later on

Re: L5R - The Duty of War - A Post Winter Court 5 story

They headed northwest, through the lands of the Kakita and into the lands of the Doji family. The weather was pleasant and they made good progress, staying in villages and temples when they passed them. And when they didn’t the green and gold jinmaku tent was pitched and they unrolled their sleeping...

Re: L5R - The Duty of War - A Post Winter Court 5 story

That evening, Karasu sat in his study with Kitsuki Shinpei. They talked at length about the Black Hand, the group had been around as long as Karasu had been Champion. Information had been hard to get in the first few years as the Onyx still controlled a fair portion of Rokugan and much of what they ...

Re: L5R - The Duty of War - A Post Winter Court 5 story

Sorry about the delay, there should be more very soon. The next few days, Harun devoted himself to training. Not just in the castle but also riding and, with his father’s permission, sparring with some of the students from the Ruby Dojo. It was quite a challenge, but he needed it and the challenge m...

Re: L5R - The Duty of War - A Post Winter Court 5 story

A family dinner at the Castle of the Emerald Champion was surprisingly informal, particularly given the ornateness of the dining room with the frieze of musicians in a garden on the walls and the delicately painted paper lanterns that hung in the open window frames. Everyone was talking at once, tel...

Re: L5R - The Duty of War - A Post Winter Court 5 story

It was one of Harun’s earliest memories. He must have been about three of four at the time, just coming on to winter and his father Karasu was due back any day in the lead up to New Year. He would sit on the terrace every moment he could, watching the road for his father’s horse. Even having to be d...

Re: L5R - The Duty of War - A Post Winter Court 5 story

Later, after a bath, Harun went up to his room. It was as he had left it, but for the past few years it was just where he stayed while on visits from the Kakita Academy. His futon, unrolled and ready for him. The small cabinet next to the futon where some of his possessions were still kept. On top s...

L5R - The Duty of War - A Post Winter Court 5 story

Here it is, the next story when Harun goes to war. We are all in for a ride, even me. Rokugan Yogasha Shiro – Spring 1235 In the evening, on the roads of the Plains of the Emerald Champion, Kakita Harun rode his horse at a steady pace. He had travelled far and perhaps he should have stopped to pass ...

Re: L5R - Birds in their Nests - A Post Winter Court story

This is the last Chapter of Birds in their Nests, a very different story that looks at a very different side of Rokugan. A story that I am very proud to have written. Thank you all for your patience with my posts, and I hope I have done justice to how it should be. Will there be more after this? The...

Re: L5R - Birds in their Nests - A Post Winter Court story

Happy New Year every one! The nest few hours will bring the final two updates. Arahime’s breathing was due to a friendly kami that had decided to ‘adopt’ Kyoumi. It was named Awa, and hovered around the newborn like a cloud. Kyoumi told her all this several days later when she had rested more, but s...

Re: L5R - Birds in their Nests - A Post Winter Court story

Kokoro had come promptly, but Izumi’s search for a shugenja fruitless as all seemed to be attending to the rituals of the New Year. So Yamada told the girl to sit in front of the gate and wait until she saw a shugenja walk past. Once in the birthing room, Kokoro took charge. She bade her apprentice ...

Re: L5R - Birds in their Nests - A Post Winter Court story

It was New Year’s Eve and the households of Otosan Uchi were alive with the flurry of cleaning. Kyoumi’s house was more exception, Sumiko and Izumi busy most of the day. Wanting to get out of their way, Yamada sat with Kyoumi. Usually Kyoumi would read of dictate letters, but today she did none of t...

Re: L5R - Birds in their Nests - A Post Winter Court story

Court was abuzz with what happened at the tournament according to Kousuda. Kakita Karasu was not the first to win the position of Emerald Champion by his opponent conceding, this had happened fifty years previously with Shosuro Jimen, but the rather dishonourable circumstances around it had been rev...

Re: L5R - Birds in their Nests - A Post Winter Court story

The day of the Test of the Emerald Champion arrived, and the entire Imperial court went down to the Imperial Legion barracks. At least, the ones who had enough influence to manage to get seats. Kousuda went to the first day, bringing back the results. Yukari had been eliminated, as had the Phoenix a...
