here is the storyline prize the players qualified for the World Championship Main Event will be fighting for in Lyon, France on November 6 and 7.
After the tumultuous events of Death at Koten, the mortal and seemingly amnesiac Agasha Kyoso was returned to the Empire of Rokugan, virtually oblivious to all the destruction caused by her foolish and petty arrogance centuries ago. Now, after more than a year of careful debriefing and study by the Phoenix Clan, Kyoso remains in captivity, held because nothing like her has ever existed in the Empire, and even the Empress has remained silent on what her fate should be. She has been a quiet and contemplative prisoner, rarely speaking save when spoken to, and the Phoenix have determined that at present she represents little threat to the Empire.
What has happened before can easily happen again, however.
Never the most stable of individuals, extensive time alone and reading of what her grotesque failures have cost the Empire have shattered Kyoso’s mind. She believe that she is destined for pain and suffering, and that her lot is to bring devastation to the Empire. Mad beyond reason, she has determined to repeat the cycle of the past and attempt to find release in death one way or another. Kyoso has planned for months and intends to give her name willingly to another oni in hopes of creating another oni lord, this time one that will either achieve ultimate victory, or be utterly destroyed and release her from her maddened existence. Perhaps, she believe, she can even earn redemption by unleashing her true self against the demon goddess Kali-ma, and in doing so end the threat that faces the Empire.
The Clan played by the winner of this tournament will determine the clan affiliation of the hero who arrays his skill and forces against the madness of Agasha Kyoso. The winner will determine if the hero slays Kyoso to prevent the release of another oni lord, or if he will take the terrible risk of permitting her to succeed. This seems a fool’s errand, but the possibility, however remote, that the demon lord can be turned against Kali-ma… would that not be worth any price? The price will be steep indeed, not only in lives and collateral damage, but the very soul of the hero in question.
The choice is yours!
