A last minute addition to the Elemental Championship.

I'll have a collection tin at the event for donations towards the GoFundMe set up for Rich Gain, former owner of a New Jersey games store that regularly hosted Old5R events, including several Koteis. Rich has tragically recently lost his fiancee and infant son in a car accident, and money is being raised to help him during this terrible time.

I'm sure attendees will need no encouragement to donate, but as a thank you, every person who does so will pull from a special box of greed containing not only cool promos, but also specially marked cards that can be immediately turned in for one of three official L5R play mats up for grabs.

Please give generously, and send love and positive thoughts to Rich.

If you're not attending but would like to donate, you can do so at the following link:

It occurred to me I hadn't shared the after event summary here. In the interest of completeness, here it is.

**************

On Saturday March 9th, Black Moon Games hosted an Elemental Championship for the Legend of the Five Rings LCG. Thirty-three players attended and battle through five rounds of Swiss and a top eight knockout, before Ian Fite claimed victory for the Scorpion Clan. Final standings and other information can be found on the Lotus Pavilion at the following link: https://thelotuspavilion.com/tournaments/3648

Deck lists from everybody who finished in the top eight can be found at the end of this post.

In addition to the generous prize support provided in the EC kit by FFG, Black Moon awarded extra promos each round, and in total gave away hundreds of extra cards.

Also awarded was a prize for best costume - James Huff claimed this for the Lion and won a vinyl Emerald Championship banner for his efforts.

A charitable Box of Greed was held to raise funds towards the GoFundMe for Rich Gain, a former games store owner and supporter of L5R who suffered a great personal tragedy recently. The players present gave generously and donated $150, and Black Moon Games were happy to match this sum, donating an additional $150.

As TO, I was extremely happy with how the event went. The attendance was exceptional, and the players extremely well behaved and knowledgeable. We kept to a tight schedule with quick turnarounds between rounds, and even managed to finish earlier than expected. Very much looking forward to many more great events at this fantastic store in the future.

Thanks,
Mark
