Oh my god, you guys, this is like Amanda Palmer marrying Neil Gaiman all over again – or any other experience where two of the people you like get together and start having sweet, sweet hook-ups. And not caring at all how you might feel about it.

Brennen Taylor is working on an Apocalypse World hack for Legend of the Five Rings, and it looks very smooth already. It’s a bit more extensive than most hacks, but hey, there’s a lot world, system and lore to pour into it.

The love mechanic especially seems very cool. Every character has a someone they love the most and a reason why they can’t be together. This makes for great drama, and brings a lot of sizzle to one-off’s. I’m excited about the prospect of one day being able to run short 3-5 session campaigns of L5R that kick major dramatic ass.
