A Call for Unity

A Letter from Shiba Tsukune, Esteemed Champion of the Phoenix Clan


With the recent imbalance in the elements and mounting tensions between clans, the wisdom of the Elemental Masters is needed now more than ever. However, the group is fractured. The disappearance of Void Master Isawa Ujina weighs heavy on the Phoenix, and Isawa Tadaka’s journey to Crab lands has left the clan without the Elemental Master of Earth. Can the Phoenix overcome these obstacles and unravel the mysteries before them?

Join us today for a letter from Phoenix Clan Champion Shiba Tsukune and the repercussions it will have on the upcoming Winter Court!

This letter details the plans of the Phoenix Clan and can be downloaded here (6.6 MB). Once you’re done reading, continue on to discover the choice facing the Phoenix Clan at the 2018 Winter Court!

Mending the Wound

As the pleas of the Phoenix Clan fall upon deaf ears and the Elemental Masters begin to disperse or disappear, Shiba Tsukune needs to regroup the leadership of her clan. At the 2018 Winter Court World Championships, the top performing Phoenix player will be given the opportunity to choose what kind of samurai (by family) is to seek out Isawa Tadaka, the Elemental Master of Earth, who has ventured south to Kuni lands. 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 Shiba Family seeks Tadaka by visiting villages in Kuni lands, asking peasants and travelers for news of him.
  • If selected, a samurai of the Isawa Family follows Tadaka’s spiritual trail, allowing the kami to guide them to where he has communed with them.
  • If selected, a samurai of the Asako Family seeks the leadership of the Crab Clan, that they might aid in convincing Tadaka to return to the Phoenix—and to help point to where he can be found.
  • If selected, a samurai of the Kaito Family follows their arrows to where they are needed.

Can Isawa Tadaka be found, and will it be in time to assist the Phoenix Clan?
