The House of the Golden Dragonfly [An L5R CCG Tournament Site]
Stronghold Store Program Information
Special Note (From T.O. Christopher Hand “Doji Azai”):
Regarding all of the Stronghold Store Prize Support you see below, Bobby Turman, Ed Alsobrook, and I in conjunction with the Store Owners that will be running our tournaments, have decided that ALL prize support listed below will be given out AT Tournaments. This statement is important because it lets you, as the player, know that we will not simply be handing out Imperial Assy Memberships or random cards on a whim – they will be achieved as Prize Support and will be used to draw in players for the Tournament Scene.
You can be rest assured that players will receive 100% of this prize support with no exceptions (save the TO Shirt thing listed below)!
How Does the Stronghold Store Program work?
The Stronghold Store Program is based upon Imperial Assembly Memberships. When it says below X-X number of members that refers to the number of individuals who have signed up as Imperial Assembly Members AND have declared the our current store (Roll the Dice) as their Stronghold. It is important for all players at the tournament scene to choose the same Stronghold Store so that we can raise our overall level and gain more prize support. If we split our support between multiple stores we will lose a great deal of optional prize support, to include, but not limited to, the option to participate in World Wide Tournaments later on!
The link to become an Imperial Assembly Members follows. After you have signed up, you can go into your profile section and add Roll the Dice as your official Store Affiliation. If you ever need to change stores you can do so on a whim, at any point. Please be aware that changing stores will affect our overall prize support:
CCG), Three 2-Issue Imperial Assembly Memberships, and L5R EE demonstration decks
Every current Stronghold Store will have an opportunity to grow their Legend of the Five Rings community.
Our level zero reward package includes options for participating in Release Events throughout the Emperor Edition Arc (automatic for level 1+, upon request for level 0 stores), as well as 3 trial Imperial Assembly memberships for new members only.
Any brick and mortar store signed up for the Stronghold Store program will also be sent our easy to learn, easy to teach Emperor Edition demo decks. Restocks will be possible, upon request and while supplies last.Level 1+ (3-5 IA Members) – 10,000 Card Stronghold Store Global Storyline Event

Player Clan Package
Another classic that AEG will be reintroducing this year will be our Clan Alignment Award. When stores have three or more current IA memberships of the same clan, each of those players will be sent special clan specific cards to spice up their decks. In addition, your friendly local retailer will be provided with an ornament to declare that it is a stronghold of that (or those!) clans.
