With the beginning of a new arc, there comes the opportunity for new stories and new legends. Among the greatest legend of Rokugan are the stories of samurai whose feuds have become the stories that parents tell their children to inspire and terrify them. Yakamo and Hitomi. Naseru and Kaneka. Noritoshi and Jimen. Now it is time for a new legend to be told.
The winners of the Pacific Rim and South American Championship will each be able to create a single new character for the faction they played during the event.
Once the two tournaments have been completed, the two winners will discuss with one another the nature of the feud between their two characters, and work with the Story Team to create the background of their rivalry. The beginning of this saga will appear in a fiction penned by the Story Team. After that… who knows how far into the story of L5R it will progress?
