Legend of the Five Rings(tm) Text Change & Errata List

February 15, 2000

This list summarizes all play-affecting changes due to the Most Recent Printing Rule and all errata which have been issued over the course of the various expansions. Those differences listed as "Clarified:" are not actual changes in function, but rulings which have been incorprated into the cards themselves.
-- Jeff Alexander, Phoenix Clan Scribe


All Oni cards, and all cards with the Naga trait printed on them originally, are also Nonhuman (TotV pp. 62-63).

All Experienced and Experienced # cards are Unique (TotV p. 30).

All Ancestors are Unique.

All Ratlings are Creatures. (HB)

The list of legal Clans on Sensei cards is not subject to the Foo Rule.
