Story Prize:  The Uruwashii
A Level 10 Tournament Series for Legend of the Five Rings CCG
Glory and valor are the trappings of any honorable and dutiful samurai. In this time of war, when the Empire is besieged both in the north by the detestable Yobanjin tribes and in the south by the enigmatic and loathsome Destroyers, all samurai are called upon by their lords and their Empress to wage war without reservation or thought for their own life. Many have died, and countless thousands more will follow them into the arms of their ancestors. For a handful, however, war will be the means by which they achieve the glorious destiny intended for them at the moment of their birth. To continue the encouragement of her noble vassals, the Empress has reinstated an ancient and
abandoned tradition known as uruwashii. The position of uruwashii is a special military rank that can only be conferred by the Divine Empress, one of her Chosen, including the Shogun, Imperial Advisor, Imperial Chancellor, Voice of the Empress, the Imperial Herald, or the Imperial Treasurer, or the Emerald and Jade Champions. The rank, once conferred, grants autonomy and prestige to those who possess it, allowing them to act upon their own initiative during times of war and granting them the right to requisition troops and resources from their lords to wage war for the Empress directly. This is a unique right that allows an individual samurai unprecedented freedom in terms of his military involvement, although most are careful never to disrespect or insult their generals and Champions.

The winner of this tournament may select any legal, living personality affiliated with his faction. This personality is granted the rank of Uruwashii by one of the Emperor’s Chosen, and becomes a figure of great renown during the second War of Dark Fire or the war against the Destroyer Horde. The winner may also select which of the Emperor’s Chosen or Jeweled Champions grants the position to the character in question, pending approval by the Story Team.

This tournament will be part of the 2010 MegaGame – The Empire’s Glory – and as such will award Glory points to the winner and the second place player.

Together, the Empire will prevail.
Divided it will crumble.
The L5R MegaGame Team

    Dang, wish I would have known about this, then I could have lost big time in the name of my most hated clan.

    You guys should set up a mailing list to notify longer distance players of upcoming events. GG is just to far for me to consider as a option for normal play and hence I don’t stay on top of things taking place there like I should.

      Sorry Tim! We do have a mailing list, and you’re on it now … sucker!
      Seriously though, you should be receiving weekly-ish updates now.
      Hope to see you at a future tournament!
