As usual, this time of the year is one of budding excitement for all fans of European L5R as we're heading towards the Premier European event of the season. However, thanks to a tiny bit of news that took Rogukan (and most social networks) by storm, the event has acquired dramatic significance. Throughout the past year, me and my fellow TOs have been throwing ideas on how to make this a good event. Now that it is the Last European Event ever, it is a heavy burden, but one that we welcome.
L5R has been a lot of different things to many different people, a hobby, a pastime, a good game, a full-time obsession, the fulcrum of nerd-rage, but mostly it is stories ... stories of people coming to play a game and staying for the people. Stories of cards, stories of trips, veritable sojourns in dark musty places where few gamers have the privilege to go. Stories of war, fellowship and camaraderie. While the game in its current incarnation is reaching its date of expiration, the Legend of L5R will live on.
So, without further ado, come pen your own story in the final chapter of a Legendary Community, as we will try to run a professional tournament for all avid CCG players and a pleasant event for all those coming at the siren call of nostalgia. BANZAI!
