On the 25th of February the Seven Great Clans will meet to Battle for the Stronghold at A Fistful of Dice
Battle for the Stronghold events for Legend of the Five Rings: The Card Game, you represent your clan and vie for control of your favorite local game store (us!).
At the end of the Stronghold Control contest, the clan with the most net victories (total victories minus total losses) gains control of the store—local bragging rights, the chance to decorate the store with your clan's colors and iconography, along with any future benefits that may come with the control of your store.
Each Battle for the Stronghold tournament features a number of Swiss rounds determined by attendance according to the Basic Structure chart from the Legend of the Five Rings: The Card Game Tournament Regulations (pdf, 8.8 MB). This event does not feature a progression cut, and prizes are awarded at the end.
- The Top 6 players from each clan receive alternate art elemental role cards. As pictured below, these alternate art elemental role cards depict each clan's current elemental role—as decided at the most recent Winter Court World Championship. (For more information about clan roles, visit our Clan Roles page.)
- The Top 3 players from each clan receive extended art champion cards.
At the end of the Stronghold Control contest, one of the Great Clans will have established its dominance (having garnered the greatest positive difference between its total number of wins and its total number of losses).
That clan gains control of the store, claiming it as their stronghold until the 2019 Battle for the Stronghold contest.
