Gen Con will see a story-line vote take place that launches players into the core of Celestial Edition. The ramifications and effect of this vote is the only the begining of dire circumstances the Clans will have to face. Few times have players had the chance to affect the life of a major character in this dramatic of a way.
A new and virulent plague has broken out across the Empire of Rokugan. So far the Unicorn have suffered the worst of this disease, though it has reared its head in the Crane and Scorpion lands as well. Who knows how many traveling merchants and others may be carrying the disease now? The plague knows not the station of a man and even those at the highest levels of the Empire are not safe.
You now hold the life of a Clan Champion in your hands.
The plague will strike a leader of one Clan, and it is up to you to choose. Vote carefully, for this event will have wide-ranging impact.
Pray to the fortunes for your Champion, your Clan, and the Empire as a whole. Darker days yet still lie ahead.
Everyone who participates in the main story-line event at Gen Con will be allowed to vote for the Clan Champion who will feel the cold grip of the plague, as well as fight for the main story of Burden of Duty. Each participant will receive a vote, and each Gen Con event kit (which contains a Clan T-shirt, booster packs, promos, and draft pack) will contain an additional voting slip for those who purchase the kit. Once a reasonable majority of players have had an opportunity to purchase the kits, you may buy additional kits if you wish.
