L5R RPG: Second City Boxed Set

$ 79.99 SRP

 

Twenty-five years ago, Rokugan fought a terrible battle against an invading gaijin army known as the Destroyers. Although the noble samurai of the Emerald Empire were victorious, the conflict was devastating beyond all others, and the lands of the Great Clans were left in ruins by the fighting. To spare her people the threat of further war, war which would surely lead to the death of an Empire, the Divine Empress sued for peace with the forces of darkness, and then dispatched her vassals to claim the empty lands left behind in the wake of the Destroyers. A generation later, the untimely death of a prominent magistrate in Rokugan suddenly elevates a group of simple samurai to a position of authority, but the magistrate’s unfinished business sends them to the Second City to see it to completion. There, influential samurai from the Empire have almost limitless potential, but the distractions from duty are numerous. In the Second City, will honor prove stronger than steel?

This boxed set for the Legend of the Five Rings Role-playing Game, 4th Edition includes the following:

A complete sourcebook on the Second City, and information on the Colonies beyond its border.
A sourcebook detailing the various individuals, groups, and agendas that comprise the Governor’s court of the Second City A complete campaign that brings characters from a position as minor deputies in the Emerald Empire to major players within the Colonies, and perhaps back again.
A poster-sized map of the Second City Technique Cards, covering all of the Great Clan basic Schools from the L5R RPG core rules
A pad of Character Sheets for everyone at the table

 

I had a descent amount of time to look this over at Gen Con.  It is a very attractive box set.  The print work and art is, as usual exquisite.  I hope to pick one up for myself very soon.

In this Box Breaking Matt busts Giant Man out of his prison. This box breaking is a little longer than most because we take a look at the dials.

 

 

Thanks for watching.  Let us know if you think we could have done something different.  The height of the figure in relation to the dial was a bit of a challenge.

We had a chance to visit with Shelly at  the Wizards of the Coast booth.  She has a lot of information for us about the Rise of the Under Dark.  We even talk about Joe.

Shelly shares a lot of information with us, while having a good time.

 

The Rise of the Underdark is going to be a great gaming experience.  It really suits players that like to force others out of their comfort zone.

One of the cooler things about this series is that he source book is presented so it can be used in all five editions of the game.  IF that is the future of 5th ed Wizards is moving in the right direction.

While at Gen Con 2012 we visited with the WizKids  crew.  They were happy to pull out the Batman figs for us (and others around).  I like where the game seems to be going and with all of the super hero RPG’s. This set is going to be a great addition to the scene. Batman No Man’s Land is scheduled for a November release.

Let’s take a look at some of these guys.

Oh my!  It’s E.T.  I was shocked to see these guys.  I really don’t know more than what you see, but they are cool.

More pictures…

We had the chance to talk with Lyle from Privateer Press about Level 7, and the Gargantuans.  Level 7 has some interesting twist as a semi-cooperative board game.   And he answered all of my questions about Gargantuans.

 

 

 

 

It is going to be interesting to watch the level 7 IP unfold.
