The Oni’s Eye – Episode 4 – Aftermath Part 2

Sorry for the delay folks!

Michael Urbi is back on this episode to finish the review of the Aftermath set

The Oni’s Eye – Episode 3 – Aftermath Part 1

So I had promised a set review for Aftermath.  We got a little carried away, so I have had to split the episode into two parts for time reasons.  We try to go into depth about each card so that new players will understand.  Also, for these reason, we only talk about the cards from an Ivory perspective, both constructed and draft.

The Oni’s Eye – Episode 2 – Kolat’s Favor

In Episode #2, Brad sits down with the L5R Community Manager, Seth Anthony.  I wanted to let the players get to know Seth better (how he got into L5R, favorite clan, favorite personality, etc). Also, this episode was about what Seth does for AEG and what he does for the players and retailers.  (Hint: He’s a Kolat double agent) 😀

Seth also brings us some information previously unknown to the masses.

The Oni’s Eye – Episode 1 – A Kolat Revealed

Sorry on the delay of the podcast folks.


In Episode #1, we reveal ourselves to the masses.  Brad sits down with the lead designer of the Legend of the Five Rings CCG, Bryan Reese, to talk about the Ivory Edition design diaries. Included are your submitted questions as well as various questions I had as well.  I try to give you, the listener, more insight into the playtest process as well as the design process with my questions.

Also, we, um, extracted a couple of informational spoilers out of Bryan in this episode as well. Must have been too much sake.
