    Imperial Gifts - Kotei Prize Fiction

    Bah! This entire piece of fiction is just shameless scorpion fabrication of Daietsu propaganda. Let's look at the facts from an objective point of view. On one side we have the younger heir spending his days in debauchery by gambling and courting palace ladies (without mentioning the fact that he's distracting Shahai from her duties); On the other side we find the Elder training assiduosly everyday to familiarize himself with the ancestral lion sword (a weapon befitting the still undefeated greatest duelist of Rokugan). i think it's pretty obvious here who is the most deserving of the right of succession

    Maybe s/he is half unicorn OR An undercover kolat agent who then tries to use the tea to contact sleeper agents within the imperial palace

    On a unrelated note, wouldn't it be fun if in a future story we hear of a mantis merchant boasting of how he managed to sell a considerable ammount of unpalatable smelly tea to some random dragon monks up in the mountains, passing it up for some rare and prodigious decoction with great healing properties?

    A Simple Test

    While also serving as a mean to kill aramato for his failure/humiliation and stalker attitude (there is no need for a third wheel in the yuri ship)

    A Simple Test

    Given the fact that the ploy was discovered in a matter of seconds, together with the general incompetence displayed by both the assassin and the decoy, i would not be surprised if it turned out the Unicorn were behind it

    you just made me realize that we have yet to see Satsume's card... i can totally see the community making a meme out of the fact that he may have worse stats than his daughter

    Well given that he successfully managed to do it once, it was simply a matter of keep trying till one attempt bore fruit. I am sure everyone would rather have an heir with a proper pedigree rather than one with unknown age and background (he would probably need to be trained too to learn the court etiquette and undergo the Gempuku) if there was still no heir by the time his majesty entered his later years, then at that point e E.champ could present the possibility of adopting the child (Satsume may have found notes of a predecessor detailing the location and appearence of the child, informations that could now be in possession of the Kolat)

    He may be unaware of it. perhaps he was a frequent patron of an estabilishment in the red light district where he used to... Compose poems and drink tea and during one of his visits ,unbeknownst to him, one of the respectable ladies, likely blinded by her admiration and charmed by his majesty's glorious presence, convinced herself with the outlandish delusion that she was carrying his majesty's child. The seppun made sure she received appropriate medical attention and offered to relocate her in a region with a more suitable weather that could ease her ill and tired mind. everything was kept as discreet as possible (afterall there was no need to propagate false rumor that could bring shame to lady Doji)

    true but both him and the current emperor have lost their martial prowess and show signs of deteriorating health We do also lack any info regarding Hantei's youth; he may have had some secret relationship before marrying, leaving an illegitimate child working as Agasha blacksmith and Satsume found out

    wait a moment... We have an elderly king (emperor) with 2 sons, one of which is a cruel arrogant brat while the other is young and meek, whose empire is slowly falling into disarray plagued by internal strife,shady political intrigue and an external supernatural menace. There is a trustworthy honorable officer serving as the right hand of the emperor (emerald champ) who has conducted a secret investigation on the royal family and claimed to have found a solution to the succession issue before being promptly killed. His newly appointed sostitute is a man from a distinguished family with a lion on its banner (mon). what else is there: - A horse-centered clan with foreign customs lead by a Lady and going to war with the Lion clan - People manning a giant Wall against undead foes (amongst other things) - Pirate raiders forming uneasy alliances - a pseudo religius organization who is gathering military power and rallying the common folk to threat the ruling class -flaming sword - se**al tension this sounds familiar.... Game of Honor: Throne of Rokugan ? --- tl;dr there is reason to believe the emperor will be killed by a wild boar before making it to court and Crab future is looking rough but all is well because Tsukune is Azhor'ahai
  11. Does using actions like Reprieve/Iron Mine prevent the stronghold from activating or you're still considered to have paid the cost and therefore gain the extra conflict ?
  12. " Dear Fu Leng, These bunch of incompetent buffoons are unworthy of the imperial throne. please hasten your return so that Rokugan may be blessed with a proper regent. i'd also like to remind you that i have a cute daughter whose training i personally supervised in order to meet the minimal requirements to stand beside a man of your stature. your BFF, Doji Satsume" ---------- @Suzume Chikahisa whoops,iwas enthranced by the evil grin and failed to realize it, thx for pointing it out
  13. Can you really blame them though? that's the face of a man with untapped Kolat potential
  14. what was the best possible course of action?

    A Swift End

    i'm still waiting for Lion reasoning behind this
  16. to be completely honest, i'm not too fond of the idea of claiming that the kolat is behind every unexplained occurrence when we could just as easily blame it on the mantis instead!

    Beginner Game

    a couple of silly questions about the extra PC 1) Is Bayushi kyo a male or female character? (it feels like it is kept purposefully ambiguous in the description) 2) what happened to his face? it certaintly sticks like a sore thumb compared to the rest of the art
  18. i may be wrong but i don't think there is any indication/mention of Kolat's existence in any of the fiction installments we got so far. The only "organization" aiming to destabilize the current government so far has been the PLS (who may very well be either part of the kolat or just a channel for recruitment),

    A Swift End

    - Will Kakita Yoshi ever admit his tsundere love for Kachiko? How is Hotaru going to react? Will Shoujo and Kitsune-kun (Hotaru's husband) meet in a tavern to drink all night and complain on how difficult it is to keep wives faithful nowadays? Find about this and more in the next installment of the award winning heart-throbbing series Rokugan: tainted love
  20. Allegations of criminal activity and collaboration with insurgent activists... That's some self-incriminating evidence my friend

    Who then proceeded to defeat the Ruby champion in single combat! (And possibly the Emerald one too) Did you notice Toturi's impertinence toward him? That's the resentment of man who got his *** whopped by the greatest duelist in Rokugan

    I have seen few people support this claim but i am not sure where it is coming from. She is deliberately ignoring Satsume's death but aside from that i think she's doing a decent job as clan champ, especially considering the absurd abuse it is receiving . For a clan that suffered a devastating tsunami that hampered their agricolture, thrown into a sudden border skirmish with the strongest military clan in the empire and under the constant menace of vile Mantis sea raids, one can even say that it's a miracle they have managed to hold on for so long (at the very least 9months)! heck, she is dealing with the economic crisis, offering relief to the troops, partecipating in rokugan's political events and so on... That's an hectic schedule. also in today fiction Was he talking about the recent lion success or did the Crane general manage to pull off a determined redemptive assault?

    On that note... Is it safe for the child when the mother keeps entering in contact with the void?

    Conspiracy Time

    New Theory The emperor's abdication is just a ploy to buy time. The edict was entirely written by Akodo Toturi (as far as we know Hantei did not even sign it himself) therefore it can be legally rescinded in the future by the still reigning Hantei. The emperor sharply perceived the lack of respect and mutinous feeling of his close aids and decided to fake his abdication in order to adress his declining health condition. He is likely to travel South to partecipate in heretic rituals and forbidden experiments that will grant him an immortal body and an extensive defree of power. After rising as the new Lord of the shadowlands he will then proceed to reclaim his rightful position as absolute emperor of Rokugan #DarkEmperor

    @Suzume Chikahisa i love how you din't even mention your own clan champion as a possible candidate Dragons are definitely outclassing Scorp when it comes to remaining inconspicuous while advancing their own agenda ------- kudos to the (soon to be former) emperor, he proved to be more far more interesting character than what we were originally led to believe. i wouldn't be surprised if he caught wind of Kachiko's intentions and it prompted him to accelerate his plan to abdicate
