Jason and I spent the better part of a day going through special cards in the next edition and tweaking a few other things while we were at it. My favourite work of the evening was coming up with the Hare clan mechanics. The Hare clan profiles - Kioshi, Iiju, and Atsushi - were very diverse, but we came up with a way to link them all, and it does so in a way that is highly complementary to the existing Prefecture identity. Satou Kioshi may actually be my favourite profile at the moment. The clan's surname also got fixed while we were at it.
I've ordered a fair number of Prefecture miniatures, so expect to see some reports on how they play in Risen Sun over the next few months. My first warband test will probably be the Hare warband, and then I think I'll move onto the more traditional warbands for the Prefecture. There's some interesting things I'd like to try out with Bikou too since she pulls in some tricks from the Kage Kaze Zoku, but those can wait.
Part 2 of the narrative is here: Blood of the Dragon.
