Confirmed for KublaCon, May 26, 2007:
A Gift of Earth
The Emperor’s prize would greatly enhance the reputation of your small clan. But others seek the honor. Minor clans, great clans, even bureaucrats. To whom will the Emperor’s favor go?
Opportunity and Danger are two sides of the same coin. The Emperor, the Great Hantei, has unvielded the presence of a new silver mine. Located in the Biwa Valley, this silver mine requires stewardship, most likely drawn from one of the minor clans with lands along the Valley. It would greatly enhance the prestige of your clan to win this stewardship, but others seek the honor. Minor clans, great clans, even bureaucrats. Who will gain the Emperor’s favor?
A Gift of Earth is a classical tale of honor, glory, greed and betrayal. Set within the lush Biwa Valley, our tale focuses on the machinations of several minor clans as they seek fortune and prestige.
“All Under Heaven“: all land within the Empire is owned by the Great Hantei. With the discovery of an previously unknown silver mine, revealed to the people by the will of the Great Hantei, a new opportunity opens for the small minor clans of the Biwa Vallley. Stewardship of the Emperor’s silver mine would open new opportunities for a minor clan. But old clan rivalries breed treacheries, and there is only one silver mine.
