L5R: Aftermath - Khalimpeh-jiak card

Khalimpeh-jiak

An interesting weapon from the Ivory Kingdoms, this card was a result of a Name a Card tournament won by Jeremy Lai last year. As previous Ivory Edition Designer Diaries have told us, Force plays a much bigger role in Ivory than in previous editions of the game. It is there that the versatility of the Khalimpeh-jiak should shine, and we hope the player-base embraces Gorobei’s willingness to experiment with it.

If you’re looking for a weapon to use in decks this arc, this is a great place to start. The -2F ability is really good here due to the time you can take the action (Engage). This allows your other actions (such as a Ranged or Melee attack) to be more devastating as there are no actions that currently make a card stronger during the Engage step.

Yeah, that’s a good card. Funny flavor too.

Jiak the Ripper?

The flavor text is amusing as heck. This is yet another tool in Force Penalty Edition, with the strength being that it is an Engage action. It’s a better card than the comparable The ******* Ones from Gates of Chaos, which has one more force and the same Engage action at the cost of a point of Honor and a card from hand.

A katar with a distinctive desing?
