Let’s work together to create some custom cultures, regions, and schools!
Want to include a culture based on real life?
Want to include a culture based on your favorite movie, show, or book?
Want to include a culture based on old L5R or on something only mentioned in current L5R?
Creating the culture:
What ring increases, and what skill increases?
How do these apply to the culture:
- What are their values?
- What are their environments like?
- How do the people look?
- How important is religion?
- How is their society organized?
- Any similarities to Rokugan?
Building a school:
Choose the role(s)
What is your school affiliated with: Summarize the purpose and draw of your school.
Create a School Ability: must scale with school rank.
Choose Ring Bonuses: based foremost on role, then based on what they’re known for.
Choose Skills: a number of starting skills from related skill groups
(pick X skills out of Y total skill choices: “x/y”)
- Artisan – 5/7
- Bushi – 5/7
- Courtier – 5/7
- Monk – 4/6
- Sage – 3/6
- Shinobi – 5/7
- Shugenja – 3/6
Choose what techniques the school has access to: in addition to Rituals.
(If a heretical sect, forgo Rituals for Maho or Ninjutsu)
Choose X number of starting techniques per role:
- Artisan – 3
- Bushi – 2
- Courtier – 2
- Monk – 3
- Sage – 4-5
- Shinobi – 2
- Shugenja – 4-5 (including the Commune With Spirits Ritual)
Build a curriculum, using another school as a bases for format.
Allowing access to techniques outside of the school’s access, or giving access to techniques that are one rank above their own, is acceptable.
Determine a Rank 6 Ability: Make it cool; broad enough to solve a particular problem reliably, but narrow enough to where it cannot solve all the character’s problems. Might include some kind of cost or set up to use.
Determine Starting Outfit: Clothing and Armor, Weapons, and Other Gear.
Let’s have fun with this!
