The Duration of the Hatamoto Status

In addition to the unveiling of the new Hall of Heroes, the Son of Heaven would like to make a special announcement:

As long-time players of Legend of the Five Rings: The Card Game will know, the noble Hatamoto status is earned through performing well at certain trials, such as Kotei events or the annual Winter Court. This title is prestigious, but it has also been temporary; once a year passed from the date on which the title was earned, the Hatamoto status was revoked. The player would then need to re-earn their title by proving themselves at another event.

However, due to the current time of crisis, the Emperor has decreed that, until further notice, all Hatamotos who earned their status from March 2019 onward will retain their titles indefinitely. This is because, with little chance to prove themselves during this chaotic period, His Imperial Majesty does not wish to dishonor his champions by taking away their Hatamoto status.

Staying Strong in These Trying Times

Finally, regardless of whether you are a bushi, courtier, or shugenja, the current state of the world has been difficult for everyone. In these trying times, it is important to keep our wits about us, and to remain steadfast and unified in the face of danger. Thus, we would like to conclude the Emperor’s message today with a simple plea: stay safe, take care of your loved ones, and keep the world kind.
