AEG customer service… amazing!

I just received a package from AEG with the missing items that I mentioned in my L5R review post. The items are a set of foil cards specific to my clan. Much to my amazement and delight, AEG included a Scorpion clan backed Imperial Favor card as well as a complete set of Scorpion clan plastic tokens! Thank you very much AEG!

The plastic tokens are made by Gale Force 9 and I’m quite impressed with the quality of them. Each token has a velvety backing on the under side and the details of the face side are very crisp.
