i just finished converting my core rulebook PDF with drag and drop to the character sheet for abilities, techniques, advantages etc... as well as school and clan details, and I am SUPER stoked to see the dice roll actually shows the symbols for the dice with this extension! I realize I am unable to share my work on the rulebook with the community for obvious reasons, but was wondering if there are any issues if i schedule a table for fgcon running l5r and letting my ultimate liscense extend the rulebook to the players while connected? Also, and this is probably a dumb question, so forgive me... but I can still the numberic results on the dice, even if faded, over the narrative symbols. Are there any ways I can disable the numberic values for interlaying over the narrative symbold of the dice when the results are presented in the chat window? Thanks SOOOO MUCH for all you have done to make this available as a foundation for this system!

No issues with sharing the rules in game
So long as the game runs relatively ok then you can totally run at FGCon
Dice faces... this is as far as I have gotten so far...

Small fix on the Notes Tab only.
It is not a required update but yes - Download the newest MoreCore.pak and then download the MCL5R.ext from post#1 in this thread to.
Replace your existing files.

First off, thanks for this extension, Damned. I've wanted to check out L5R for a long time now(even before 5e came out), and seeing the dice in the extension made me take the plunge purchase the game! I wish FFG would license their stuff...

For anyone- I am going to try and get my pdf of the rules into FG by doing copy and paste, but I can't get the dice symbols to copy over. Does anyone know if this is possible, and if so, could you point me in the direction of how to do it?

Hi Wolfspyder

The only way to do that is to embed them into the font and assign them to an unused character space. You might need to substitute them with words...

If any folks are interested in testing out, let me know... I am running 4 campaigns a week of this now in FG hahaha LOVE THIS SYSTEM! Next FG Con, I plan to sign up to run it as well. I am not promising a lengthy campaign, but I would be happy to run character creation and an intro game if there is interest. Anyway, I LOVE how functional this is, the only issue my players have run into, when we are rolling dice from within the character sheet, sometimes there is always 1 player that accidentally clicked the +/- next to a skill and causes their dice roll to error due to the added modifier. They swear there is nothing in the modifier box and I am unsure how to educate them to clear this out when it happens. I literally have closed the session and had everyone rejoin to hard fix the issue, but I am sure there is an easier way.

So I've been looking for a good replacement game since I can't find Qin anywhere to play and I came across this, I downloaded the extension and everything looks great but when I try it in Unity all the symbols are giving me errors. Is there an easy way to make it compatible with unity since that is more stable for our group or do we have to bite the bullet and go back to classic?

MoreCore has a Qin roller.
I havent tried this extension in FGU yet - sorry.

I'm super interested in trying this game so I decided to try creating a game on FG Classic but when I open a character sheet I get this error as well as anytime I try to type in a name or anything.

So which person do I have to bribe to get this to work for me (preferably on Unity but I'll take what I can get lol)
It seems the Unity error message is just about the dice faces not being numbers or something but on Classic it's even worse. But at least the dice still work on Classic just nothing with the character sheet for me. This is with a fresh campaign of MoreCore and no other extensions except this one and no modules downloaded.

I realized it as soon as you said something, I haven't updated MoreCore for Classic in a while since my group moved on to Unity. Once I updated that it works fine on Classic now. I'm going to start formatting my layout and do some data entry to add the clans, schools, abilities, spells, and Items. Hopefully someone figures out how to fix the dice function for Unity eventually because that is way more stable for two of my players.

I spent a lot of time reading through the Genesys forum last night and I was wondering if this extension would be better suited working off that Ruleset since it is so similar? It might be easier to get the dice faces to work in Unity and the way it builds the dice pool for skills & attributes seems more idiot proof for the players who might accidently hit the +/- button more than once before rolling their elemental ring. The more I read of Genesys I am thinking it might become a group standard for my group over Savage Worlds for a generic rpg that can be easily reskinned for different settings and L5R is amazing and we all love it so much. I'm going to try and tweak it a bit to run a slightly more mature Avatar the Last Airbender game.

Thanks for the ruleset its awesome!
FYI, I just loaded the Morecore and MCL5R extension in Unity and from the get go problems with the dice.

Yeah it’s a known problem on Unity. It works on classic though.

I really appreciate it, I'm going to head with my game tonight I've got to work around where thank goodness I have my library created where I can still access my essentials from that to get by and the character sheets are still accessible so we're going to soldier through tonight and I appreciate anything you find later on and thank you very very much
