The Legend of the Five Rings (L5R) is a collectible card game created by Alderac Entertainment Group. L5R takes place in the fictional empire of Rokugan from the Legend of the Five Rings setting, where several clans and factions vie for domination over the empire.
A major distinctive feature of the game is the importance of the storyline: new fiction pieces advancing the story of Rokugan are published on a weekly basis, in addition to being released with every expansion, and in a quarterly publication, the Imperial Herald. Many of these fiction reflect the result of tournaments, where players use their decks to determine which faction will claim a particular prize within the storyline.
This is a game definition for the Online Card and Tabletop Gaming Network (OCTGN). Only the Empire Edition is available, but the project is open to anyone who wants to contribute including previous editions and sets.
Hello everyone, Entropy42 here. I saw that WHI had become inactive in the OCTGN Games Feed, so I re-added it and got a WordPress site created for it.
You can still download all the card images (Core-Eternal War) from my Dropbox page (for now).
I’m still transitioning this plug in to a new developer, but wasn’t going to let it die in the meantime. I won’t, however, be uploading Cataclysm. That set won’t be added until a new developer takes over. The set is mostly done, but my successor will have to finish it off and cross-check with the released cards.
If you are a fan of WHI, Germans, Canadians, or hedgehogs, you should check out the WInvasion Podcast, hosted by Mallumo and HappyDD.
Game devs, please remember to update the Game and Set URLs in your feeds to point to the new wordpress locations for your game, as the forum has been deactivated. Any games still pointing to download links in the forums won’t work anymore.
Restarting OCTGN should make it fetch the new update, the ImagePack for the champion cards can be found here.
KoF XII has been added, with partial rules text. It will be updated to completion over the weekend.
The game can be installed by following the directions here.
Image Packs can be found at – http://www.mediafire.com/folder/7x5tzceztx3of/Image_Packs
Changes made in the 126.96.36.199 update:
- Made some of the text a bit larger for proxy images
- Added M14 cards
- (cosmetic) Reorganized the python code, added some more commenting
Note that this isn’t a clean update, it’s mostly to get M14 out there before the pre-release. Images will come later, and the cards probably won’t be autoscripted for a while. I’m in the process of rewriting a bunch of stuff so a more hefty update will come later.
“Time is short. See! The beacons of Gondor are alight, calling for aid. War is kindled. See, there is the fire on Amon Dîn.”
–Gandalf, The Return of the King
A censored version of Encounter at Amon Dîn, the third Adventure Pack in the Against the Shadow Cycle, is now available to play on OCTGN.
Hey all, we’ve had Modern Masters card data in the game def for a while, but they have been proxy images. The source that makes the high-quality scans has had troubles acquiring a complete set to scan so it’s taken a lot longer than normal to release the image pack.
Here is a temporary image pack for Modern Masters, which contains older printings of the cards instead of the new ones: https://www.dropbox.com/s/5xwdhfltrctqnzw/ModernMastersV0.9.o8c. (Credit to [can’t remember who]) The proper image pack will be posted in the Downloads page when it is finished.
M14 card text will be added to the game in the next few days.
In case you didn’t know, there’s an invitational tournament going on at the moment. 4 known community members and 4 known strategists have been invited to participate in this small 3-round single-eliminaton tournament. The idea being that people with interesting ideas will make interesting decks to play each other while other good players record and comment on the gameplay. Read the link above for the full details.
I was included as part of the community members and decided to participate as part of the community members and I went in with my NBN “Flytrap” and my Kate “Fast-Hate” deck and played my matches yesterday. I’m not going to post my results yet though, until those videos are posted so you’ll have to wait to head my thoughts until then.
However the first two matchups of shobalk VS jopejope and Tuism VS sydwys8 have been posted online, so just make space for three hours to enjoy some high-level and experienced play
