L5R RPG Campaign

I've been running an L5R Campaign for the group (six of us total now), and while it's been moving slow, I think the player-based style is perfect for L5R. In fact, I intend a post soon about how L5R can be a STORY GAME.

In the mean time, the players are embroiled in a "murder mystery" and they've all come to take very different Points of View on what has exactly happened.

I'd rather wait to post what's going on, until the players reach a milestone in the story, since some of them read this blog.

Attention Game Designers

AEG is looking for innovative new designs for a line of board games releasing in 2010 and 2011. The games are set in a renaissance city, and the mechanics and theme of the individual designs can explore various aspects of life in the city, (mercantilism, politics, crime, war, etc.) From board, card, or other games we are not limiting the type of games we are looking at. As far as play style or experience it could include any style of play from resource management, economics, area control, and more. Euro-style and American nothing is off the table as long as it is fun. Innovation is a bonus!

If you will be attending Essen and think you have a game that fits please come visit the AEG booth 9-70 and ask for Todd Rowland or Mark Wootton.

If you will not be attending but would like to submit a prototype to AEG please e-mail and we will get you a game submission form right away.
AEG is also looking at other less specific games for our 2011 and 2012 schedule. Again the only limiting factor is that it is fun. We look forward to meeting you and playing your games.
