I will gather all Spider-relevant bounties for the 2015 kotei season here. I'll aim to add them regularly, as I did for earlier seasons.

    Audax (Spider icons & other clans' icons for co-operation; bounties for all clans)
    TheItsyBitsySpider (Spider icons)
    Daigotsu Cielago (Bounty regarding Daigotsu Shimekiri and Spider duelling)
    Kakita_Shiro (Spider/Crane bounty for the Kakita Academy) Claimed
    sndwurks (Otosan Uchi bounty)
    Zarasu (Doji Tears and all other clans' icons)
    Adam Carey [via Kolat Informant] (Spider corrupting Scorpion icons other than the Oni's Eye)
    Martino (Corrupting the sword Chukandomo)
    Kokujin Nic (Tomb of Kokujin)

Last updated: 2015-06-14 (might still behind the bounties a bit)

We do not know the story prize write-ups for the 2015 kotei season yet, but we have Information on the Icons already. So here are some bounties from me.

I think that for most players the chance to corrupt other clans' Icons is the most attractive, so it doesn't need encouraging by bounties. Hence I put my efforts to other options (reference: http://www.l5r.com/2014/12/10/2015-kotei-season-icons/)

Spider Winners

• A Spider winner who chooses to perpetuate a Spider icon (and thus ensures that it is carded and gets attention in the story) will receive $20 (US) from me.

• A Spider winner who chooses to save the Tamori Shugenja School or the Yogo Shugenja will receive $30 (US) from me, and additional $10, if the Tamori School is used to bring Spider and Dragon closer together.

All Clans

Any winner who chooses to save the Spider icons below will receive $30 (for Spider players, this isn't cumulative to my bounty above, sorry). In case of a non-Spider winner, the bounty increases by $10 (US) if the saving happens to bring the two clans closer together.

    • The Tao of Fu Leng
    • The Kokujin Family / Kokujin's Order of the Dark Lotus
    • Obsidian Magistrates (or the Obsidian Champion)
    • the Hellbeast Legion
    • Obsidian Claw Duelling (for Shadowlands nostalgica)
    • Any Spider-aligned Shugenja School (Chuda, Gyushi, Ninube)
    • The Daigotsu Courtier School (or its variant the Susumu Courtier School)

I'll pay the bounty via PayPal.

I'm not sure that we can claim something that isn't linked to the Spider Clan (or any other clan) as a possible icon. I wouldn't wager that the Governor of the Second City or the Last Tribe qualify there. But trying doesn't do harm I suppose. The Story Team and Design Team might contradict, though.

Also, be aware that Obsidian Claw Duelling is this, whereas Obsidian Blade Duelling is that, a Strength-based school of 3rd edition that didn't make it into 4th Edition. In the CCG this meant Force-based duelling instead of Chi-based duelling.

Yeah, I wanted Obsidian Blade it seems. I just want Spider to be associated with a dueling theme.

As for the second city, I would love to give it a try.

As for the Ratlings, I am fine with losing the Goju, but would love to see them replaced with ninja's in their stead. Ratlings would be awesome and terrifying so I would like to see that.

I'm not sure if it counts as iconic already, but there is also the Demon Blade Technique/School (no RPG mechanics, probably a Kakita bastardisation). It's how Daigotsu Shimekiri and he wasn't just a fan favourite character, but the alter ego of L5R artist Troy Graham. Shimekiri even made it into horror stories parents tell naughty children, an equivalent to the boogeyman or Knight Rupert I think.

Question: As a Unicorn player, does the Spider player-base have an icon they would choose to have preserved to strengthen the relationship between our two clans?

I'll be going to the Kotei's in Atlanta, Knoxville, Charlotte, and Fort Mill so I'll have a few opportunities to take home a win.

I made this a bounty last year, so i'm going to do it again.

I'll offer 20 bucks for any pick that involves spider dueling.

I'll offer 50 bucks for any pick involving Shimekiri, including results that describe his fate, confirmation of a school founded by him, or his actual presence. if he gets carded again due to your pick i'll double it to 100$.

I think that non-Tainted icons would work best in this context. There are non-Tainted icons on the original list of AEG and of these icon I think the Ancestral Sword of the Hantei might work best, because it has a big symbolic value to the Spider.

But there are other possible icons that are already linked to the Spider/Unicorn Alliance, which I think would work best here:

Seiatsu, this blade was created by the Unicorn Clan in recognition of the Spider's status as Great Clan. It is currently wielded by Daigotsu Tenbatsu, who was one of the clan's rulers when Kanpeki was still a child.
The Dark Wind. This is a Spider cavalry unit built after the Unicorn/Spider alliance was formed. It is led by Moto Yuudai,who rose to become a paragon and a veteran of the War of Dark Fire, where his unit often fought alongside Unicorn armies.

If you prefer Taint, though, you have many more options, of course. But the majority of the Unicorn playerbase might not like Taint and corruption very much.

I'll add you to the list, but that Shimekiri has taken students for his technique, Daigotsu Takahide among them, is canonised via Winter Court 3. There are no mechanics or cards associated with it yet, other than Takahide himself.

Yeah, not a fan of the shadowlands/taint myself but I can see why some people are. The Susumu and Duelists are what initially got me into playing Spider so I'm part of the new gen I suppose.

Didn't know about the sword or cavalry division. Both of those seem like good choices. Thanks for the ideas!

Edit: I like the idea of preserving Shourido too but not sure how that would mesh storywise with a Unicorn win. If I manage a win with my Spider Honor deck that's my first pick.

Keep in mind that if you want to strengthen the Alliance and you win with a Spider deck, you must choose a Unicorn icon. Tricky. :p

Maybe Moto Akikazu/Moto Death Priest Tradition? The guy was Tsume in his previous life.

I'm not sure if persons really count as icons. But we don't know yet if the winner may also choose a Personality along an icon and what to do with it. Maybe the Death Lords could work, Akikazu was one, but they don't seem to mix well with Spider religion, because Shahai is a kinslayer and an unpunished one. But before Saturday when the season starts, I'll reread my Unicorn sourcebooks and surely will find something interesting.

That said, Spider players are currently quite interested in duelling schools, and the Unicorn have a Calm Heart Duelling School, if I remember right.

If you want to keep up the Atsushi/Sousuke plot then certainly one of the dueling schools.

$20 USD to NOT corrupt the Kakita Academy.

$50 USD if used to bring Spider and Crane together.

See how much love Spider dueling is getting?

Put me down for the following:

$50 USD to preserve Otosan Uchi as a Spider Clan Icon. This goes to a Spider Clan player who does it, or another Clan who preserves it to bring our Clans closer together, or even to drive our Clans further apart. While I do care, any of those are awesome to me.

$25 USD to preserve Shourido as a Spider Clan Icon, either in house or with someone else bringing us closer together.

Here's my bounty:

I am offering $50 USD to the Spider Clan player who wins a Kotei tournament in the 2015 season and selects Doji's Tears as their chosen icon. The item may be used as a matter of contention with the Crane Clan but at no point should it be selected for corruption.

I am also offering a $25 bounty to the first four(4) winning Spider clan decks who choose not to corrupt any icon from another clan. If one of them is the player who selects Doji's Tears, the bounties are cumulative for $75 USD.

Not mine, but something I discovered on the Kolat Informant's blog:
http://kolatinformant.com/2015/03/kolat ... 015-kotei/

To any Crab, Crane, Lion, Mantis or Unicorn player that wins a Kotei and chooses a Scorpion icon gets $75. If that chosen icon is The Oni’s Eye, Master Coin and Master Silk will raise that amount to $200.

If a Spider player chooses to corrupt a Mantis icon (other than The Oni’s Eye), they will receive $100.

If a Mantis or Crab player choose to save Shrine to Yoritomo, that player will receive $250.

I will award $100 to any Spider who corrupts Chukandomo.

IF this selection directly leads to the dissolution of the Crane/Lion alliance, I will award an additional $100.
