Torn Asunder Previews – Hachiman’s Prowess & Revelations

Well, look what dropped into my mailbox? It’s time to kick off the previews for the next Legend of the Five Rings expansion, Torn Asunder, and where better to start the Strange Assembly preview selection than with Card #1 from the set:

Hachiman's Prowess

Hachiman is the Fortune of Battles, for those of you playing along at home.


Seems more interesting for the flavor text than the rules text (assuming that the Shadow Dragon isn’t just lying, because, well, that is the sort of thing he’s been known to do. Also, because my random Vampire: the Masquerade reviews clearly are an insufficient torment, let me leave you with what comes to mind when I think of the word revelations (sorry, Sister Georgia):

“Hanging From Horizon’s Eyes
See The Faces Crystalline
Trace Your Foot Steps, Follow Through
Down On The Ground And Kiss Those Black Lips
Back Upon You, Waiting On
Sound Of Heartbeats, Breathing’s Drawn
Tasting Your Temptation
My Dark Embrace’s Revelation”

– Nosferatu, The Night Is Young

  1. How is it that a couple thousand people can read this post, and not one of you has made fun of me for embedding some song about vampires? I mean, I like it, but I do expect to get mocked for it. It’s like you guys aren’t even paying attention.

  2. I think I’m desensitized to the vampire stuff in general after the umpteenth review of some random VTM product from 15 years ago. If it makes you feel better, I’m sure we can find some way to make fun of you on the next podcast.
