Posted October 16, Wed 24 Jan – If it was dishonorable, triggering the duel would require you losing honor. The dueling rules directly contradict the idea of honorable duelist, by definition. Each card told you the effects of winning or losing. However, Wrt and Petitioning are technically not illegal and have their advantages – 1 fate or 1 honor.

When rat start or get hit with a duel you need to decide what you want out of the duel, as well as what your opponent wants out of the duel. It would also greatly inflate the rule book.

All of these are characters or attachments and can be used multiple times instead of one shot effects from action cards. If they are losing so much honor from dueling it is not because of the dueling system, but their inability to read the game state and their opponent.

At this point, my biggest “issue” with dueling in Dragon is that I find Raitsugu’s art to be rather poor. Ok, just answer me this: Art of the Duel focuses on single combat in Rokugan, be it with katana, bare hands, magic, or words.

By adding a common layer to give “depth to the or system” you actually reduce the potential variance in the system as every duel has such a strong effect already that adding to it becomes burdening. Unless the duel is game-winningly-critical, assume that the person initiating the duel is going to throw a 1 and bid accordingly.

I liked the old rules too, but these are much more stream lined and thus easier to explain to new players. On the third Round of the duel, both characters enter the Strike stage on the Initiative Turn of the slower duelist. The only strategic choice right now in a duel is “Do I want to try to win this duel, or do I want honor?

At this point, it is possible for either of the duelists to concede defeat, recognizing his opponent as superior. I understand you are satisfied with the watered-down rules of dueling. Yeah Raitsugu looks awful and for Crane we get garbage vanity artwork for our unique duelist. Even a PC built up specifically for this purpose — like with the Heart of Vengeance advantage and boosting Air and Void — would at best stand an average chance… at the expense of pretty much everything else….
