So I managed to sleaze a win for us. Yay! :ninja:

I'll post a tourney report later but to give you an idea on how things went down, here's a link: http://www.alderac.com/forum/viewtopic. ... 4&start=25

The deck list can be found here: http://www.spiderclan.net/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=1728

In the meantime, I need everyone's help on what to pick as a story prize. So I just have 3 questions for you all:

1. What's the best pick which would benefit us arachnids?

2. What's the highest bounty out there that I could pick?

3. What would be the best balance between 1 and 2?


The tourney organizers are only giving me 2 days to decide, and I am quite busy during these two days. I literally have no idea what to pick so please help me out.


Edit: link to tourney report and decklist

There's a pretty nice bounty for Doji's Tears. I think $175. Or if that's not to your liking (they purify the taint), we have a bunch of icons that need saving (Sohei? Tao of Fu Leng?), or you could corrupt some other clan's icons (Matsu Beastmasters?).

Edit: Also, congratulations on your win.

Congrats on the victory.

The Akutenshi need resurrected to wage war on the Empire.

Congratulations on your victory, Noël!

There's a bounty thread, but it's slightly outdated, because I've been busy with real life. As Buttlord says, the single biggest bounty is saving Doji's Tear for the Spider as reaction to Kanpeki getting tainted. The Tear purifies a Tainted character.

There is a Mantis/Kolat bounty to corrupt a Scorpion one (other than the Oni's Eye, which is already save) for $100, and another to corrupt the blade Chukandomo, which is meant as sign of friendship between Lion and Crane. If this choice destroys the Lion/Crane alliance, the bounty is doubled to $200.

I've put up small bounties of my own, but found out that not all on my list might be doable. We have yet not a single Spider Icon saved by the Spider (although the City of the Lost, the Hantei Sword and Shourido are already chosen). The Tao of Fu Leng bears some significance to our community, because reclaiming it from the Crab was the very first story prize we won as a community.

There are quite some possibilities, actually. I would love for the Spider to gain access to the Tamori Shugenja School or School or Iuchi Shugenja School, preferably by saving either friendly. I always liked the Obsidian Magistrates, so to save this school would be cool, too. Or the Susumu Courtier School? A Spider with access to Yogo Shugenja School would be interesting, too.

Corrupting another clan's icon might be more to your taste? Some Spider Players consider corrupting the Kuni Shugenja School, the Witch Hunters or the Asako Inquisitors an interesting choice. Cities can also be chosen to be corrupted or saved.

There are many possibilities. Our clan is so very much diverse, that I'm sure you'll make fellow Spider players happy no matter what you choose.

If we're going to spitball ideas, I want to propose an out-of-left-field choice: Save the Kuni Witch Hunters/Asako Inquisitors/Kuroiban/Damned. Friendly or unfriendly, any of them is out there enough for it not to matter. But for the Walk in the Light crowd it could be a lifesaver.

This, of course, assumes you swing that way.

The Ruins of Otosan Uchi as a Spider Clan Icon currently has my $50 on it.

I'm not keeping up to date on the Tainting bounties, personally. But The Ruins of Otosan Uchi was the first Spider Clan Stronghold, it was our chapter in the Strongholds book, and it was a keystone to the efforts of the Spider Clan in Winter Court IV. It also gives Emperor Kanpeki a nice city to rule in, once it is rebuilt, with ties back to his father's greatest victory and the founding of the Hantei dynasty.

Noël, one advice for choosing Icons. Because there are several kotei this weekend, I think it is a good idea to name at least one alternative when making your choice. Just for the case that another winner chooses the same Icon you do first or if an icon not on the official list (like the Obsidian Magistrates, Otonsan Uchi or Kokujin's Order) is not approved by the Story Team. Players are encouraged to choose icon not on the list, but not every idea will be accepted.

You should consult with your new clan champion, Susumu Shibatsu, on what's best for the Spider and the Empire.

Congrats on the win! I would take something from a non-Mantis Clan. We already have something from them.

Imagine the possibilities: instead of removing the taint, it gives them to people.

Taint Seiken. Taint Shibatsu. Taint Miyaka.

Taint Kisada. Taint Renyu.



Taint Renyu's dog! :peasant:

Is there a corresponding bounty for this? :star:

One tainted dog or many tainted lions?

In terms of Lion icons to corrupt, the Matsu Beastmasters and Akodo War College both rule.

My primary suggestion would be The Ruins of Otosan Uchi for the reasons mentioned in an earlier post above, it would be nice to have that place return to being the proper seat of power(especially *our* seat of power)

Secondary would be to unfriendly steal the witch hunters since as one of those favoring walking the light(a name i still don't like) i can see some use in a number of us learning their secrets(and depriving the crab of the same)

My third would be to unfriendly(or corruptly) steal the matsu beastmasters since i always liked the image of the spider leading a pack of beasts(fits with our strenght and control virtues)

I see no reason to do it friendly with those two clans since the chances of working together is near nil

If I was in your position I would probably save the School of Venom (I'm biased towards it because they're my favorite), Tao of Fu Leng, or the City of the Lost because no one is going to save our icons but us. There are a lot of nice bounties out there though, so I wouldn't fault anyone for choosing one. Stealing the Kuni Witch Hunters would be pretty awesome though, I have to admit.

Congrats on the win!

My suggestions:

Corrupt the Kuni Witch Hunter School. They've left it alone this long. Apparently, they don't want it. And corrupting the maho-hunting school will be HUGELY beneficial to us.

Maybe corrupt the Toshi Ranbo?

From the Scorpion? Yogo Family, Kurioban, Yogo School are all solid choices. Maybe Corrupt the Shinobi School for our ninja brothers and sisters. I'll admit, if it's not Spider related, I don't pay too much attention. So, some of these might be picked already.

None of those icons has yet been chosen by anyone, for any purpose.

The City of the Lost was taken by the Dragon, hoping to raze it.

Which seems very backwards to me. The whole point of these picks, from day 0, was that choosing an icon would save it from the events of Onyx Edition, one way or another. Icons can be taken, but there's no provision for destroying them, aside from the Spider corruption option. So... the Dragon have guaranteed the survival of the City of the Lost. They can hang out there and put up NO SPIDER ALLOWED signs (if they really want to occupy a city in the Shadowlands), but they can't destroy it.

I say let them destroy it. Destroying the remnants of the Shadowlands means that the Spider will have to rebuild anew when Onyx is over.

My bounty is $175 USD to NOT corrupt Doji's tears. Stealing it to piss the Crane off is fine, however.
