Creatures of rokugan

So it really really seems like this is concept that could grow up to higher than 5th level. I don't speak Japanese. So it's not that people don't want to play in the world of Sinbad the Sailor or a magical Baghdad where Aladdin has a genie in a lamp; it's just that the settings tend to be rather flimsy - you'd as much ask why people don't play in fairy tales and run into Weyland Smith. But of course, OA naga are different, and by "different" I mean they're monstrous humanoids instead of aberrations.

I did amazingly well in the one convention, as over a couple of games I became Jade Emissary for the region that was represented in Australia and more importantly did not die, lose honour or gain taint. The Minor Oni are also CR 2, but were og written by somebody else in absolute seclusion from the guy writing megada no oni.

Those aren't wounds, those are eyes. This proved that AEG authors could be equally non-proficient with two rulesets.

This is more like Eastern Europe-sliding-into-Central-Asia. Japanese Phoenixes are dokugan Houou, and that is what they are called in Pokemon and that is what they are called in the Creatures of Rokugan book as well.

Anyway, the book feels the need to give different writeups for Nezumi from different tribes. They're the beloved underdogs of the setting. How could you put it next to another goddamn CR 2 oni and stand back and say "Yes, that looks balanced. Mushizo from Ninja Scroll.

Or if Monsters of Faerun had wasted a shit tonne of page space on Elves and Dwarves. It's a thematic thing in the setting which can be quite complicated but ultimately devolves into unexplained metaphysics that no-one cares about. According to its description this should take about 3 hours once the first moetechi no kansen gets started you summon 1, in an hour you have 2, in two hours you have 4, 3 merge to form a Taki-bo no oni and the 4th starts the cycle againso I have no idea why these guys haven't burned down the world yet.

How is this thing CR 2? Both in terms of its position in the story and in terms of how fucking oversold this cdeatures is.

Yes, they still have automatic self resurrection that doesn't cost a level, but it takes a whole day. So I don't know why they bothered.

Then after doing that, they sold the IP back to AEG, thus making AEG the sole company able to make official supplements for an official 3rd edition setting. Oni no Tsuburu is the same.

I'm not proud of it, but it is what it is. They were part of one of the stupider shapechange based infinite power loops. I mean, they already have the standard spirit immunities and Shapeshifting as an extraordinary ability, couldn't you just pump up their track and move silently and wilderness lore skills and call it a day?
