The Bride of the Emperor Storyline Tournament - Crane Bounty

"With the ascension of Iweko Seiken to the throne of Rokugan as Iweko II, the Empire celebrates the continuity of the Iweko Dynasty. Blessed by Heavens to rule Rokugan with wisdom and honor, the Emperor nonetheless needs to ensure he will himself have an heir to carry his name in due time. Looking to create stronger bonds between himself and one of the clans who tutored him, the Emperor will soon choose a bride. Beyond a simple marriage, such a choice will have tremendous impact on the political scene of Rokugan, and courtiers of all clans are doing everything they can to ensure the Emperor’s choice comes from within the ranks of their clan. At the same time, the forces of the Spider scheme to ensure the Emperor has reason to regret his disdain for their clan.

The winner of this tournament may select any one female personality from their faction to serve as the bride of the Emperor, a position often referred to as the Empress but also known as the Imperial Consort. Any female personality introduced via a personality card or previously existing within the established story, such as one of the named but as-yet-uncarded daimyo of the various families within the Great Clans, is suitable. The chosen personality must be unmarried, of course, and in the event that the winner is unsure of his choice’s eligibility, the Story Team will work with him to ensure that he has a list of eligible candidates."

This used to be one of our most important sources of power in the Empire, and I think we should take it back. So I will be starting off with a bounty:

$100 for the Crane who selects Kakita Kae as the Bride of the Emperor.

Not only is Kakita Kae one of our coolest characters, having both political connections and the notoriety of defeating the Dark Naga, but Gio is awesome and I favor player vanity characters for any story prize. I hope others will pitch in on this bounty. We should take back what is ours.

UPDATES: Additional bounties -

$250 from Kakita Kae
$100 and a Kakita Kae playmat from Doji Azai
$50 from Asahina Shimato
$50 from Daidoji Tacticus
$54 from Kakita Kasukaru
$100 from Doji Pheelyp
$25 from Kyle Patrick Smith (via Facebook)

Also, Doji Hoturi pledges $50, Kakita Shiro pledges $30, Kakita Hideo pledges $20, Doji Hajime pledges $20, and Mirumoto Daisuke pledges $101, for ANY Crane Empress.

Togashi Jo pledges $100 if your deck is completely untainted by undesireable elements for ANY Crane Empress.

That puts the cash total at potentially $1050! Thanks for the support!

Oh wow. I am quite surprised by this indeed. I would be absolutely honored to have Kakita Kae chosen to the Bride of the Emperor. I'm definitely in favor of the Crane taking back the position of what was once ours.

I will double Martino's bounty and add $200 to the total bounty, with the possibility to adding more in the future.

Currently, the bounty stands at $300.

Yes, yes, yes. We need to win this tournament.
Kakita Kae is nice choice. Doji Tatsuki or Doji Dainagon are also worth considering ;-) .

I would also suggest that when Kotei season is over, people who had money set aside for unclaimed bounties should go in with us. I want to be able to convince people loyal to other clans to work for us, just like we used to do in the story back in the day!

I very much would like to see a Crane bride.

However, I do not want to add cash as a Bounty.

Instead, put me down for being willing to purchase both a Kakita Kae Playmat and any other available Mario Wibisono playmat.

I'll have to go check and see what is available.

Count me in. There are so many reasons for this. Gio is awesome, and I like the idea of her taking this prize for the Crane a lot.

I can spare 50$ for this.

Edit: Changed it to USD to get a neat tidy sum instead of two different currencies.

Put me in for another $50.

...I'm waffling on whether to put something down for choosing Asahina Umeko. Because on the one hand, seeing this no-name shugenja rise from obscurity to the Crane Ambassador's number two to Imperial Consort would be hilarious... but on the other hand, the wrong brother won, and I do not see a marriage to Seiken being a happy one.

Now, if there were an event to choose a bride for Shibatsu, that would be another matter...

Thanks for the support! I think she is the right choice for this particular Emperor!

Should my current bounties go unclaimed, I'll add them to this one (so about 20 USD more, potentially).
