In the grim darkness of a fantasy Far East, there is... quite a lot to do, actually. Court intrigue, product making, resource collecting, investigations, all sorts of things. But how do you actually do all that stuff? Well, you use skills. In this preview of the Legend of the Five Rings RPG, Fantasy Flight shows off how skill checks work in the game.
From the post:
In the land of Rokugan, adventure awaits you. War, intrigue, and arcane mysteries will beset your journey, but you are not without power. In Legend of the Five Rings Roleplaying, your samurai’s skills, ambition, and honor will guide them through tumultuous times toward victory and glory, but not without cost or opposition.
Whether mighty bushi, cunning courtier, or mystical shugenja, skill checks are the fundamental interactions you and your character will have with the game itself to determine the course of your adventures, and provide a path to unexpected journeys!
Join us today as we explore how skill checks are made in Legend of the Five Rings Roleplaying and how they will help players and Game Masters shape stories together.
