Hey, I like the Story Team. Do you like the Story Team? I think they are pretty rad! Let's make FFG like the Story Team!

In all seriousness, the people who have made this game amazing over all these years have time and time again been the Story Team. They have the impossible job of interpreting the collected madness that is our tournament wins and somehow trying to make a cohesive story out of it. And for all of this? They don't get paid.

Yeah, maybe they make choices we don't like. Maybe they don't give us as much power as we want.

But here is the important part.

FFG may not keep them if we do not fight for them.

So right now, take a moment. Think about your favorite piece of L5R fiction. Go back. Read it. Read where someone, one of us, the players, made a difference in this world we have invested years of our lives into. Read it again.

Then post a link below with the Title and Author.

I am planning on compiling the links as part of a letter I am penning to Fantasy Flight Games regarding the nature of L5R as THE Interactive Storyline Game. Because if there is one thing we may lose in this transition? It is that.

If you want to keep L5R having a Story Team, just post your link with your favorite Story, Title, and Author in this thread.

It is the community that has made L5R the game that it is. Let's keep on making it awesome, and let's give back to the people who gave it to us.

"Know this, Hitomi-sama. When you rise from earth to heaven, the Crab will be watching you. Do not think that our arrows cannot reach you in the sky. If we must, we will build a wall so high and so thick that even you cannot harm the Empire, and we will shoot at you from atop it until you fall screaming to the ground. Now, go." ~ Kuni Utagu, The Twenty-seven Days of Darkness—Day 14
