Winter Court World Championship

Each year, the Emperor of Rokugan honors one of the Great Clans by extending them the privilege of hosting his Winter Court. The greatest champions of Legend of the Five Rings: The Card Game are also invited to attend.

Held each year during the November World Championships at the Fantasy Flight Games Center in Minnesota, the Winter Court is the pinnacle of Legend of the Five Rings Organized Play, featuring fantastic prizes and top-level competition between the greatest samurai from each of the Great Clans, as they compete for exclusive items and trophies!

The top finisher from each of the Great Clans is invited to make a critical Story Choice, deciding which house will attempt to resolve one of the clan's most pressing concerns. The World Champion is declared Shogun and makes this Story Choice for their clan—and may even petition the Emperor for permission to send a specific representative. Then, the Roles of Rokugan ceremony decides the destiny of each clan, as the top finisher from each will choose their clan’s exclusive elemental role for the next eight months!
