Skill Bonuses
  • Etiquette
    • Rank 3 - The character gains an additional +3 Insight above the total normally indicated by his Rings and Skill Ranks.

  • Courtier
    • Rank 3 - The character gains an additional +3 Insight above the total normally indicated by his Rings and Skill Ranks.

  • Languages
    • The Empire has only one language with two dialects. The world around Rokugan, however, has a wide variety of nations and cultures, each with their own language. For 1 point, you may learn one human language from any surrounding culture, including but not limited to: the Yobanjin dialect, Senpet, Yodotai, Mekham, Merenae, Rhuumal, Thrane, etc. A non-human language, such as Nezumi or Naga languages, requires three points and confers only the ability to understand the language and a limited ability to express very basic concepts verbally.
    • Chosen Languages: Yodotai, Invandi, Merenae, Rhuumal, Naga, Nezumi

  • Imperial Spouse
    • Through a careful exchange of favors and resources, your family arranged for you to be married to a minor member of an Imperial family. Your spouse was not of high enough station to warrant you taking an Imperial name, but there are benefits all the same. You gain +0.5 Status Ranks, and you gain a bonus of +1k1 to the total of all Social Skill rolls made with members of the Imperial families.

  • Bad Fortune
    • Kharma is a powerful force, and sometimes it is a destructive one as well. There is something unpleasant in store for you, and you may have no idea what it is until it is far too late. Bad fortunes take almost an infinite amount of forms, all worth the same number of points, and players and GMs should discuss the form of a Bad Fortune during the character creation.
    • (Unknown Enemy)Someone somewhere in another Clan hates you, and wishes to see you dead. You have no idea who they are or why they hate you, but you will very soon.

  • Dark Secret
    • You possess some horrific secret that could lead not only to your ruination, but perhaps others in your family as well. It may be something terrible you learned about your family that you alone know (if a venerated ancestor was secretly a dishonorable buffoon), or something you personally have done (you may be a member of the Kolat or Gozoku). If your secret is exposed you may be required to commit seppuku or possibly even be executed. This disadvantage is worth 5 points to ninja characters.
    • Ichihara traded information about the Empire to the Yodotai in an attempt to create good relations between the two peoples but the it did not work and a small village was completely destroyed before the Yodotai were pushed back. Ichihara blames himself entirely for the death of that village and feels that he should have been able to tell he could not trust that particular Yodotai. If anyone were to find out about the dealing then it could possibly lead to his execution.

  • Greedy
      Material wealthy is more important to you then anything else, even though samurai are not meant to be sullied with commercial interests. Opponents attempting to use Temptation (Bribery) rolls against you gain a bonus of +1k1 to the total of the roll. This disadvantage is worth 4 points to Mantis characters.

Kasuga Smuggler School
  • Rank One: Way of the Tortoise
    • The Tortoise routinely consort with the lowest elements of Rokugani society, often spend time in foreign ports, dealing with gaijin, pirates, and other villains, and otherwise do things most samurai find repugnant. They are also skilled merchants, an unavoidable side effect of being smugglers. At character creation, you may learn an additional gaijin language for free with every purchase of the Languages Advantage. You do not lose honor for using Low Skills, or Glory for using the Commerce skill in public, so long as you are doing so as part of your duty to your clan. When dealing with heimin or hinin, such as peasants, merchants, or eta, you gain a +2k0 bonus to all Social skill rolls.

Ichihara is interested in going to winter court so he can get the opportunity to better represent the Tortoise Clan. This in the hopes that he can manage to reduce taxes and increase the resources that flow through their lands. He knows that he has aimed quite high and that his ambition might be unrecognizable but he must try.
