Kolat Objective: Return of the Naga (Updated 7/27/14)

Subversive_InfluenceOne of The Tiger’s Claw goals at Gen*Con 2014 is to be determined by the side event and post main event, Siege: Heart of Darkness.

This event could conclude the events of The Dark Naga as well as what could happen to the Naga race in the game.  More information about the events at Gen*Con here.

AkashaAs an old school player, I remember when the Naga was a playable faction in the game during the first two Story Arcs.  Today, I call upon members of all clans, but more so the Crab, Dragon, Mantis, and Unicorn, to forge an alliance.  This alliance has but one goal: the return of the Naga as a playable faction in the L5R CCG.

The reason I called out these individual clans is due to their history with the Naga.  The Crab clan have battled the Shadowlands hand in hand with the Naga and even shared a Stronghold and a Clan Champion.  The Dragon current clan champion, Mirumoto Shikei, is part Naga and a descendant of Mirumoto Daini and Mara.  The Unicorn were gifted the Legacy of the Naga and thus had a permanent ally in the Akasha and her daughter, Moto Naleesh.  The Mantis have a long history with the Naga Pearl Divers as well as one member of their clan, Yoritomo Minori.

The Dark Naga has reconnected his subjects to the Akasha which seems to have lead to the maddening and corruption of many serpent creatures, including Ningyo, Naar Teban, & some of the Naga that we know.  I believe that the Naga are the best ones to deal with the power of The Dark Naga and his corrupted brethren.

*Note this section has been changed*

After careful consideration, we believe that for the original Naga to awaken, the Dark Naga needs to be successful in the destruction of the Second City.  If the Second City is destroyed and the Dark Naga power increases, we will have reached a point in the story where we final have an truly great and powerful enemy, one that we feel will require the Naga help in dealing with.  The reawakening of the Naga is a big deal.  Let’s give them an enemy their great race deserves.

You can join us in reaching this objective by participating at Gen*Con in the 2014 Challenge Booth.  If you are unable to attend, you can still help by sharing this on social media and using the hashtag #AwakenTheNaga.
