Post Lotus or Dark Lotus?
Which would you prefer for the next L5R base set/story arc?

Lotus or Dark Lotus Edition?

I'd like to see Dark Lotus.

After all, great conflict/tragedy produces great heroes.

Lotus. With that arse Iuchiban running around, there's been too much supposed 'darkness' of late. Is it too much to ask for a little bit of quiet while Daigotsu gathers his power once more? It's about time the story focus was on the clans, not the Shadowlands.

Legend of the Five Rings has three conditions. Military: which they constantly support and then, almost as quickly, undermine. Honor: they inadvertently support and then are quick to attempt to stifle. and Enlightenment: the one, true solitaire victory condition.

Making cards to support and kill all three weakens the card pool and gives us useless pieces of cardboard. Therefor, for purely mechanical reasons, I would support Dark Lotus.

Unless they do something about Unicorn, though, it will be a moot point, as it will be Purple Lotus when all is said and done.

Off topic: the spellcheck button RULES

I realize that Enlightenment is one of the foundations that the game is based on, and understand the arguments about removing that victory condition from the game (it's been elluded to that the Rings themselves would still be around in Dark Lotus).

But I still think it may be interesting to shake the game up for the next story arc (which will probably last for about 2 years) with Dark Lotus.

But we know how the unicorn are protecting all the cities. So we know what that means. Shucks, just when I thought Oni no Acuma would come to destroy everything and evil portents would be back.

lol

Now that the effects of Dark Lotus storywise are up on the AEG site, I say Dark Lotus.

It's just so awesome.
