The Legend of the 5 Rings mon collection. The images themselves are, of course, originally from the game and belong to Alderac and L5R. I just put them together on this page for reference for all those ditz types like me who have low heraldry marks, but like to look at them all at once. :D
The clans are in alphabetical order, with specific family mons underneath the greater clan mons.
01/20/2015 - From the tons of link-ins I get on this page, I assume y'all still want it. I've seen a few people mention this page in posts and want to know where I got the mons. Evansville Gaming Guild is long since disbanded, though I leave the link in for posterity. >.>;; The watermark style mons I actually snagged from the L5R official website. Again, I DO NOT play the game anymore (though I go and make faces at a few of the competitors at GenCon), so if there's a change made somewhere, I really do rely on one of you guys sending me a message. Thanks!
I was amused to note a few changes - some "old" clan mons that have been added in, as well as a changed spelling for one of the Unicorn clans. lawl.
Some of those changes are from storyline events - like when the minor clans of Centipede and Wasp were taken over/joined in with Mantis and became families in the Mantis clan. Where this happens, I've tried to note it in both locations. The exception to this is Sparrow, which while sort of a subsidiary clan of Crane, doesn't really like being called Crane, and the Crane don't like being reminded that those farmers over there are actually sort of related. If yer playin' Sparrow, though, you ought to know that much. :p
|Brotherhood of Shinsei|
(also Moshi family under Mantis)
(note this is also an old Crane name)
|* Most of the Dragon family mon have been played with a little from the pictures I originally snagged because they were hard to see, I thought. Nothing major, just upped the contrast and darkened them a little in an attempt to see the images more clearly. I went with the thought that I should still be able to see the rice-paper like texture behind the dragons.||Agasha
(also Pheonix family)
|Falcon (also Toritaka under Crab)|
(family not race)
(I have no idea why this version of the mon is flipped from the other two versions. This is the way I found the mon a few years back. o.o; )
(also Dragon family)
|Asako (old/original)||(... I sort of want to know the story behind the change of this mon.)|
(Also Toturi's Army)
(I'm not a Spider player, but I think this is one of the best designed
mons. And Creepy As F---.)
The green version here isn't behaving. It's
another one of those invisible background things that isn't showing up
(this particular mon makes me wince because the first two symbols are katakana - "i" and "u" respectfully, but the final sound "chi" is in hiragana. Sigh. I know, not Japan, but it still makes me wince.)
That's what it should look like.
|Utaku / Otaku
(yeah, they changed the spelling so it wouldn't look like *that* otaku)
(Also Tsuruchi under Mantis)
I cannot take credit for these on my own, I snagged the images from "http://www.evansvillegamingguild.com/rpgs/l5r/mons.php" and from the Alderac official website.
05/21/2013 - I'm fixing all my other pages, but I realized that this page is probably Just Fine with plain black and white, so I'm leaving it like this. :)
9/6/2011 - geeze, y'all. O.o;; Okay, so this page is getting hit enough that I updated it. The newer images are mostly snagged from wikipedia, but I also went back and snagged the new stylized major clan mons off the alderac webbie. The new ink-style mons are supposed to have a white background, but they were trying a nifty thing with making backgrounds invis on the jpg. But I have red background on my website so they look sorta crappy where the black of the ink is supposed to be fading away - use 'em on a white background and they'll look cool again.
