Fantasy Flight Previews Character Creation in Legend of the Five Rings RPG

Everyone wants to make their own character. It's their avatar in the RPG that you're playing. But how do you get those stats together? How do you pick skills? What about classes and feats and special abilities? How do all those work? In this preview of the Legend of The Five Rings RPG, Fantasy Flight is showing off just how your characters will be built.

From the post:

Tales of harrowing tribulation, perplexing mysteries, and glorious battle do not arise of their own volition; they are born of deeds—from those who endure what others cannot, learn what others do not, and brave what others will not. Before your adventures across Rokugan begin in the Legend of the Five Rings Roleplaying Game, you will make a series of choices to describe not only your character’s statistics and powers, but also their personality and place in the world.

Whether you have a firm concept in mind—a temple guardian who strictly follows his clan’s beliefs, or a contemplative monk whose curiosity sometimes gets the better of her—or you’re starting from scratch and exploring as you build, your character comes alive by answering the Game of Twenty Questions. What’s more, character creation is one of the key differences between the Legend of the Five Rings Roleplaying Core Rulebook and the Beginner Game!
