The timeline is 19 pages! Trim it down a lot.
If that's your only complaint, I take it as a compliment
I notice that the background is similar (dare I say identical?) to the background from Legend of the Five Rings/Clan War. And this saddens me. I had hoped for a more Warhammer world version of Nippon, or Naippon, and not just a rehash of another game's backstory.
- As I said in the first post, yes the fluff is from L5R, I am not trying to hide that. It just seemed like a waste of time trying to come up with something based on the same thing that wouldn't turn out nearly as good. I simply moved Rokugan to the Warhammer world, and changed a few things to fit it in there better.
Have you made nice with the owners of that intellectual property? 'Cause Games Workshop is not the only company out there who can toss around Cease & Desist notices.
- I have not. But they are very welcome to sue me for something I don't make money on, nor do I make their own books redundant as you still cannot play L5R using this book. Also, as a poor student, they won't get anything from me anyway

I like your previous books, but this is such a blatant steal from the L5R universe that I can't really approve of it
You can't really call it fan-made if made by another company...
- What is fan-made is the actual army list and rules to play with. The background is just extra sprinkles on top for those who want to know more.
