So, I'm going to get to run a Legend of the Five Rings game soon! I have fond memories of this game from my college days, but since then, it's always been a problem for me. I think a lot of the fun of the game lies in its subtlety. A samurai lays his daisho on one side versus another, and sends a clear signal that despite his kind words, he does not trust you. The etiquette forms a kind of non-verbal vocabulary, but unless the players know that vocabulary, you can't have that subtlety. The last time I ran L5R, I gave a sheet of paper with bullet points of etiquette. The players said it was like homework. That game didn't live out the first night. This time, I've learned a thing or two. I have some ideas for ways I might handle this, but I wondered what the rest of you think. What are some useful techniques for teaching players these points of Rokugani (pseudo-Japanese) etiquette in a way that's fun?
