Like with any good living card game, you need to keep bringing out more content in order to keep things fresh and in the case of Legend of the 5 Rings, keep the story moving forward. So it comes as no surprise that Fantasy Flight Games has announced the Imperial Cycle for the Legends of the 5 Rings LCG, but with a major difference.
That difference is that the six new packs will be released over the span of six weeks, instead of six months like normal. At the same time the narrative of the L5R story is going to be expanded over those same six weeks, following the events in Rokugan in almost real time if you get the packs as they release. This will shake things up and change the landscape of the card game in a matter of days instead of weeks. At the end, there will be lots of new cards for each of the factions, and of note is that there will be cards specific to the role you choose, whether you are a Seeker or a Keeper. You can preview some of the cards and read more about this event on the FFG website, and look for the packs to start appearing on store shelves in early November.
