I even had some special tweets from folks about my entry:
Can’t say enough good things about my former editor’s passion and love for the L5R setting and the community. https://t.co/0t6N8sixzU

On August 2nd, I received this message:
Rokugan calls for you! You have been invited to the L5R Honored event in London on 2nd September. This was a result of your entry with the L5Rhonored hashtag. I would like to formally invite you to attend the L5R Honored event.
Thank you so much for your support of this game and I hope you are able to join us in London. Please reply via email to email@example.com with your acceptance or to let me know if you cannot make it by Monday 7th August.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank Fantasy Flight Games for the invite and my many friends and fans for their comments trying to sway FFG / Asmodee’s decision. My worry is my 83-year-old grandmother. While I have arranged for care while I am gone to Gen*Con next week, I will be unable to do so for the September 2nd event in London.
Therefore, as much as it saddens me, I am having to decline the invitation.
A messenger has been dispatched to the Emperor with this news.
