Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
The Topaz Championship, Rokugan's most prestigious gempukku ceremony has been held annually in the kakita town of Tsuma for centuries. Tomorrow the ceremonies and games begin. Today you have just arrived. Tsuma, though host to such a prestigious championship is no more than a large village. No clan embassies here. You have been directed to stay in the House of Laughing carp, apparently the only inn worth speaking of in the town.
Many Notable guests have already arrived. The emperor, having arrived on his imperial barge earlier today. Doji satsume Crane clan champion and emerald champion sits at his right hand. Kakita Toshimoko, Kakita Daimyo and kakita duelling master is personally present for this years tournament. Finally, Bayushi Shoju, Scorpion Clan champion is in attendance, one of the deadliest swordsmen in rokugan.
Though the town has no walls, Crane Ji-samurai stand at all the access roads to welcome the arriving competitors. Torches and decorations line the way to the academy and the inn.
Tomorrow you must report to the Kakita dueling academy, tonight is yours to celebrate or contemplate as you wish.
