The Topaz Championship is a competition and coming-of-age ceremony (gempukku) for the samurai caste of Rokugan. The Clans of the Emerald Empire gather together for three days to watch their children enter into adulthood through a series of tests. They are judged not only in their skill in battle, but in court. From archery to poetry, etiquette to dueling, the contenders not only compete to earn their adulthood, but the coveted title of Topaz Champion.
But clan politics and personal vendettas certainly make things more interesting.
This game is a Storium version of a Legend of the Five Ring’s adventure, Ceremony of the Samurai. The setting is a sword-and-sorcery Japan. You will play a Topaz Championship contestant. The game will take place over four in-story days. While we won’t be using the same mechanics, I will be utilizing the Clans, Families, and Schools, and other basic ideas that inform on the story.
