I am an avid RP and tabletop gamer, currently designing a tabletop skirmish game of my own. It is a hobby of mine to sit down with a core book for a game and decipher its system.

Currently teetering on a method that's based on the character's Honor, adding mods for how bad the situation "looks"

comment How to Determine *Honest* Sincerity
I still have to say that KRyan's first comment is the core of my question. I understand fully that the tenets of bushido involving "honesty" and "face" are vital, but how to mechnically convince someone you are being honest where both a pass and a fail aren't the same result. As for the "Sense Motive" it's Investigation/Awareness to roll against Sincerity of any variety in RAW.

But that sort of invalidates there being a use of the skill towards honesty. I agree that it should be included to the game, but how to quantify it and not just "leave out" something that points get put into.

You mean the 1 & 2 couldn't be kept, which doesn't really change the example result? (Side note: The Defense skill works similarly with the To Hit roll)

comment Which way is North in the L5R 2nd edition map?
Although if you take a man-sized section of fourth wall out of the game, you could say that the Mantis are North, putting the Gaijin to the West.

Are you sure you're not referring to D&D Oriental Adventures? You mention rolling a 20
