L5R – A New Era is Almost Upon Us

L5R.com is really pushing out the flavour text and fluff for the new arc of our 9 favourite clans. After several years the very successful Celestial Edition arc is coming to a close and a new arc is commencing called Emperor Edition.

The story of Emperor Edition is going to be set several decades later than Celestial Edition allowing AEG to provide a kind of soft reset to the environment. Some of the characters will be there (in the story if not in the actual cards) playing older, elite versions of their younger selves. This is going to make room for a whole new generation of new characters, new abilities and new story. I’m really looking forward to it.

The main starter decks for the nine clans are being released over a period of nearly a year. The first three starter decks (released as part of the “Before the Dawn” series) were Crab, Lion and Phoenix. Coming out next month is the second story expansion, Second City, which will provide starter decks for the Dragon, Mantis and Scorpion clans. In about 6 months time the remaining clans of Spider, Crane and Unicorn will each get their starter decks. As each of these story expansions are made available; booster packs will also be released containing the various additional cards.

Now is a very exciting time for L5R players. It is also a great opportunity for new players to jump on board and start collecting. For more information on L5R in Thailand please visit our local website www.l5rthailand.com. To see who’s meeting up, and when, at our local stronghold store Battlefield Bangkok you may want to say gday on our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/groups/battlefieldbangkok/.

Golf Shoot – Burapha 26.01.2020

I get to do a lot of Golf photography. One of my clients runs professional golf tournaments for international schools and I get called along to shoot regularly. Going to a new course, for me, is a great opportunity. It’s always refreshing to play with a new back drop. And what a great change of location it was too.

A Day in Nagoya, Japan

When your wife asks if you’d like to join her on a work flight to Nagoya, even if only for 24 hours, you go. Anyone who even pretends to know anything about me knows that I absolutely adore spending time in Japan. It’s just such a nice place that is so different to the hustle & bustle that is life in Bangkok.

Stylized Photo Editing – Do you have a look?

Many people often comment that the hardest thing they strive to do as a photographer is to create a feel; a signature look for their shots. I also wish I knew what mine was but I’m not so sure that’s a thing.
