This is a summary style writeup of a set of three L5R campaigns. The first, Storm Rising, was run by my friend, Brigham Bentley in Wilmington, DE. The second, Storm Breaking, was written and run by me. The third, Calls the Lightening, was written and run by Shannon Kalvar. I have tweaked things to make a better narrative, but these are basically all events that happened in our campaign. The game is structured so that it can use just about any group of samurai. It is good to have at least one Shugenja, especially for the first campaign, and probably the game will be more intense as written if there are characters in the Crane, Crab, and to a lessar extent, Unicorn or Dragon. In all these campaigns, you're playing in the big leagues in terms of rank..if you believe that no one of less than the most noble family's birth would ever be invited to a significant championship or a winter court, the characters would need to be able to act in those circles and be of a rank to be in those circles. This is heroic L5R, and your characters have the opportunity to become very important people in the world.
