Truly #L5RHonored

A few weeks ago, Fantasy Flight Games held an #L5RHonored contest to invite players to a special event in London on Sept 2nd.  You can find my entry here.

I even had some special tweets from folks about my entry:

On August 2nd, I received this message:


Rokugan calls for you! You have been invited to the L5R Honored event in London on 2nd September. This was a result of your entry with the L5Rhonored hashtag. I would like to formally invite you to attend the L5R Honored event.

Thank you so much for your support of this game and I hope you are able to join us in London. Please reply via email to with your acceptance or to let me know if you cannot make it by Monday 7th August.


I would like to take this opportunity to thank Fantasy Flight Games for the invite and my many friends and fans for their comments trying to sway FFG / Asmodee’s decision.  My worry is my 83-year-old grandmother.  While I have arranged for care while I am gone to Gen*Con next week, I will be unable to do so for the September 2nd event in London.

Therefore, as much as it saddens me, I am having to decline the invitation.

A messenger has been dispatched to the Emperor with this news.
