Fantasy Flight Games acquires Legend of the Five Rings

Fantasy Flight Games announced today that they have entered into an agreement to purchase the Legend of the Five Rings intellectual property from Alderac Entertainment Group (AEG)

Legend of the Five Rings is a legacy brand and a collectible card game (CCG) with a dedicated, passionate community and a story that spans the last two decades. Legions of players have traveled to the land of Rokugan and the Colonies, joined the noble samurai and shugenja of their favorite clan, and taken an important hand in shaping the story. Now, as Legend of the Five Rings moves over to Fantasy Flight Games, certain changes are coming to the realm of Rokugan.

The Undine, ERRT Transport

Last week I presented a campaign outline to take your D&D PCs from 1st-15th level. This week I’d planned to present enemies for use against parties of 16th-20th level, followed by a second aquatic campaign outline next week. Well, the list of enemies for the highest tier of play is so short that I decided to combine the two posts into one which will both be presented next week!

This week, I wanted to share with you a new project I’ve been working on. I’ve recently become a huge fan of the One Shot: Campaign podcast and Fantasy Flight Games  narrative dice system used for the Star Wars: Edge of the Empire, Age of Rebellion, and Force and Destiny RPGs. At GenCon this year I’ll be running my first game using this system. The party is an independent Emergency Rescue and Reconnaissance Team (ERRT) that uses a specially modified Paragon Class transport ship as a base of operations. Think Firefly, if the group had a more focused (and less criminal) profession.
