Well let me see. A year or so back I made a L5R
character for a game and promptly never got a chance
to play. In other words, I'd love my character to be
involved. May not have gotten to play a game but to be
in a fanfic would make up for it.
If you grant me the honor I shall accompany you and
the other brave members that have volunteered. Just
give me a sec while I figure out how my character
became "Hitomi" from "Mirumoto". :)
A great idea Kojiro-san. Even if nothing happens
because of it, it will at least be fun. If you need
any help (I am an experienced GM if you need help on
the roleplay aspect) let me know. I'd be glad to help.
