Facebook reports that Mark Armitage(Hinomura) has won this event, and chosen Yunmen, the Whisperer.

Gen Con 2015: Legend of the 5 Rings Events Part 1: Side Events wrote:
The Empire of Rokugan is home to many heroes, some epic in scope and some whose achievements are on a smaller scale, albeit no less impressive for all that. Many of these heroes find themselves embroiled in matters that are little more than a footnote in history, but which can result in great glory and honor for their family and clan.

Each of the Draft events at GenCon will result in a unique fiction vignette that will take place as part of the ongoing Scenes from the Empire series of short fictions. The two finalists in each event may select one character from each of their decks to be featured in the vignette, and the winner of each event may select the type of story that will be told including the two personalities (although the roles they may play will vary significantly depending upon their identity, as well as the author’s preferences): war, romance, horror, or political.

The prize is actually on offer for each draft pod that runs, and they're doing four a day it seems. I've played in three and won three, with the following results:

First pod: picked Yunmen, the Whisper to best Tsuruchi Yashiro romantically
Second pod: picked Daidoji Ryushi to best Kuni Soseki militarily
Third pod: picked Daigotsu Shikenuro to best Goju Yurushi romatically

Scrubs bromances FTW.

WTF! Mark... I knew you were good in draft... but DAMN!

Spider may not have the cream of the crop in the constructed circles but we sure as hell dominate in the draft world of l5R.

You rock man!

oh... and of course...


SILK FEVER!

That has more to do with the fact that you can represent your clan while drafting any combination you want, freeing you to draft the best cards you can.

Storytime for Yunmen is long overdue. She was supposed to be an awesome courtier and our liason to the Brotherhood. She is a Spider prize and I'm glad that she was chosen. That she will face the safekeeper of the Obsidian Blades (*cough* the Ancestral Sword of the Snake Clan *cough*) is even better.

Yurishi either submitting to the wooing of an undead (Yurishi is a shapeshifter, after all) or that Silk Fever's beloved will choose him over the Goju daimyo could be an interesting story, even if the pairing sounds silly at first.

Well done, Mark, well done.

Thanks guys!

I should also mention that Anthony Lawrence conceded in the final of a pod against Jeff Williams to set up some Aranai over Keppo action - they pitched an idea to the story team, but I don't want to spoil things by giving it away.

I also had a win on Sunday, but chose a Mantis character - Tsuruchi Satou to defeat Yoritomo Tensen in a horror conflict.

Does the Tsuruchi still have the obsidian blades? I thought they were stolen by the obsidian ascension card a few set back, held by one of those goblin things that the lion enslave.

Right, there was a zokujin who took the blades. But I don't remember if there was ever a story about how he gained the blades or if he is just the Tsuruchi's sidekick.

No story, but there's a card: Obsidian Ascension.
