Well, that's a plus, for now. Still, L5R has been AEG's baby (not to mention their bread and butter) for a long, long time. That they'd sell the property to anyone is really surprising, the brief stint with Wizards of the Coast not withstanding.
Well it makes a little more sense now how they planned to bring the Naga back, at least if they were intending to sell the property. With an LCG model it really doesn't matter that much how many factions there are, you can choose how your elease support. Though if the Naga end up getting axed, that'll be a bummer.
Still, i haven't been invested in the game since they axed the Nezumi. Can't say i feel that bad if it goes, but I would like it to keep going if it can.
