A Call to Action

The Right Hand of the Emperor commands the military might of the Emperor, and with his new position as both Emerald Champion and Lion Clan Champion, Akodo Toturi is in the most effective position to reinforce that aspect of his clan’s duty. At the 2018 Winter Court World Championships, the top performing Lion player will be given the opportunity to choose what kind of samurai (by family) is to be elevated to the honorable position of Commander of the Emerald Legions. To help offer guidance in the selection of a samurai for the task, here are brief summaries of what the different options mean with regards to the outcome of the decision.

  • If selected, a samurai of the Akodo Family commands with honor and integrity.
  • If selected, a samurai of the Matsu Family commands with ferocity and without hesitation.
  • If selected, a samurai of the Ikoma Family commands with cunning and subterfuge.
  • If selected, a samurai of the Kitsu Family commands with guidance from the recently departed.

How will the Imperial Legions behave under the leadership of their new commander?
