In the April 2021 issue of The Imperial Herald, Paul invited me on to chat about the climactic chapters for the Legend of the Five Rings: The Card Game story arc as well as the narrative process behind L5R in general. I discuss how I came to work on the setting and what it was like to work with the many freelance fiction writers who contributed to the storyline. We also discussed the balance between preparation and spontaneity when working on a serialized story, especially when that story is interactive and involves input from a community. You can read the full interview on the Imperial Herald website.
