New to L5R role playing just this year, but one of the early sessions had a swarm of goblins just engulf a samurai, kill him, and then move onto the next. Your image is a great representation of what I pictured happening to the noble samurai who fell that day.
Of course, it's a great game ! I played 2 years in a row and i never get tired of it !! The world of L5R is awesome and there are many options to create a character, many schools and different professions.
