Alexander Wolf the winner of the German kotei just got his story prize confirmed: Save the Chuda Shugenja School for the Phoenix. This could be an interesting plot. However, the Chuda without their maho school are hard to imagine. Let's see how it plays out.

EDIT: It could also mean that the Chuda work for the Phoenix, like the Bitter Lies work for the Mantis now. The next installment of the kotei fictions cannot come soon enough. :mrgreen:

I think this is going to be one of those "bite them in the butt" choices where they end up having a bunch of Blood speakers that harm them in the long run. Remember, AEG already said that people might make wrong choices and relaize later. Interacting with the Chuda in a helpful sense seems like a bad decision in the future. :twisted:

But we will have to see...

For the CCG it means maho and/or Bloodspeakers for the Phoenix in Onyx Edition. I approve. Of course, saving a maho-related icon from destruction/oblivion in a Jigoku-ruled Empire is a headstretcher at first. It doesn't need to be a poison pill prize, though, it could mean a Phoenix splinter group of maho-tsukai in Kanpeki's realm.

Like so many things this season, it's a wingnut kotei winner choice whose exact realization is hard to call at this stage.

So they save the Chuda school yet their vote didn't reflect the path of Pure Blood Magic? Odd choice if you ask me.

Why would you expect the choice of a single Kotei winner to necessarily align with the preferences of the entire Phoenix player base?

I don't, but it would seem that one would want to maximize your wins with your clan to make for something more effective.

This is hardly the oddest icon choice from that perspective :P

(This Kotei season also saw the Crane take the Kitsu Tombs and the Ancestral Standard of the Lion, and even more bafflingly to me, the Unicorn take Thunder Dragon Bay. Which is on an island. And is of absolutely no significance aside from the fact that the Thunder Dragon hung out there at some point.)

A purified minor Snake Clan that uses its knowledge of maho to fight against the Spider and Jigoku might be pretty cool.

Eh, bringing back the old Snake Clan maho-hunters would be cool... but it would not reflect the kotei winner's intent, I feel- his initial choice was "save blood magic," and then he had to narrow it down.

Basically, a member of the Bloodspeaker Brigade won a kotei and used it on what he felt like. It happens.

24% of the Pheonix voted for Pure Blood Magic compared to the 30% that voted Tadaka and 38% that voted Heaven. Its a strong enough position that the story team will be factoring it into the Onyx story. When the results came out and this choice was still floating the Story Team likely OKed it because they see the potential synergy between the two choices.

Actually, it's not hard at all. It is called a Gyushi.

Depending on interpretation, the Chuda Shugenja school is only one of their teachings, on using maho more discreetly.

Chuda Necromancer school is much better!
