One of my favorite gaming podcasts, One Shot, just put up a new episode starting a (2, 4?) run of l5r. you can find the ep here: http://www.oneshotpodcast.com/one-shot/ ... gs-part-1/
apparently it revolves around the crab and the spider, and everyone involved is a relative newcomer to the setting. sounds like an illuminating view for us diehards to get into how the conflict looks from the outside.
If you don't know One Shot, its generally known for being insightful but also fucking hilarious. This sounds like they went more serious, which seems appropriate. I've only listened enough to hear them refer to a Hida character by Hida, which should give you some indication of their familiarity with the setting, but i've sufficient trust in the guy who runs the podcast, James D'Amato, that i can recommend a listen without having finished the ep myself.
