A really well written fiction in my opinion. A solid reminder of why I chose to play Unicorn.

It's good to be back! So, what'd you guys think?

P.S. - Also, thanks for the original post Coyote!

If I may be allowed to paraphrase the character Elayne Trakand, This is hardly the worst Unicorn story I've read.

...

In all serious though, I'm still excited to see more. I could nitpick about most of the details (A Katana *is* a curved blade) but I'm not going to, I will wait to see more stories. Just like I'm wating to see more from Golden Plains Outpost before completely judging it.
I need to to give a huge (and rather late) thank you to all Winter Court 4 Unicorn players, especially our fearless leader. Thank you.

What I liked the best are the Unicorn are not portrayed as stupid... rather that they don't care about others misguided opinions about them.

After a talk with a friend, I've come to agree that the Asako is actually a Shosuro. With that in mind I actually think story works as an introduction.

Has anyone asked their non L5r playing friends to read the fiction(s) and tell them what they think the clan(s) is(are) about?
