L5R analysis

To play L5R as we've been playing, I need to pretend I've just written my Burning Wheel beliefs, and that I actually decided to write "Honor is everything", "The General of the West knows Best", and "My companions are all that matter". There's also a Glory and Status and Shadowlands Taint measure, but they haven't come up in the game yet. Since there is no support for "here is what I want my character to care about", instead I need to retcon my brain into thinking "these things - honor, glory, etc - are what I want my character to care about". I don't know if this is possible but it should be, brains are easily tricked.

Also any system where failures are uninteresting had better either roll a lot, or get out of my sight.
