Among the treasures found in the Pearl Cave in the Archipelago of Dreams there have indeed been the Ide treasures of the Unicorn. Among them, the shard of Lady Doji's Mirror Shinjo carried into the unknown and later broke into pieces during the Ki-Rin Scattering to maintain contact between the families. The very one which Hawthorne took from the dead body of Ide Sunosa, depriving the Ki-Rin furthest west to respond to Lady Shinjo's final call. The loss which cost her people not just her guidance, but the life of most of her children and the Otaku family.

True to his word, Jama is returning it to the Unicorn, but unlike with Hojyn's teachings, he is willing to contemplate entrusting it to one of the Ide (Akaichou if applicable, otherwise Mohan) on Kameyama Jima without prejudice to where it would go.


---

This is applicable to all active players, and is a straightforward bet - the winner takes all, the losers ar reimbursed with half of their invested VIP. Same-Clan votes are pooled, and they all count as winners and partake in the following decision-making.

If the winner goes back to Rokugan, the Ide custodian of the mirror travels with them to a faction within their Clan (decided between the players and the GM) and becomes the Unicorn ambassador by their faction which allows that faction to forge an alliance with the Unicorn ahead of their return, through inter-mirror communication. The other holders of the shards are Shinjo Kublai and Iuchi Kandagauri, and Shinjo herself (though she cannot be contacted via a single shard). Every VIP invested by the winner in the bet can be re-channeled into post-game goals related to influencing their Clan agenda toward that aim in whatever creative ways can be agreed between the players and the GM, counting double. Or they can be turned into xp for the purpose of Skills and Advantages expanding on their familiarity with the Unicorn (such as Allies, Languages, Ranks in Lore: Linguistics or Lore: Gaijin Culture, Battle, Cannon, Firearms, Horsemanship etc.) up to a half of contribution at a ratio of 1 xp per 10 VIP.

If the winner goes east and eventually reaches the Tarkhanate, the missing shard is returned to the Grand Vizier Ide Mansuri. The player becomes the ambassador of the faction to the Unicorn (or if Unicorn - a new stakeholder in the Clan) and can partake in reshaping their policies through goals as if they were members of the Ide family of the Unicorn Clan, including the opportunity to forge an alliance between the Unicorn and their faction. All VIPs invested in the bet can be rechanneled toward the purposes, counting double. Or they can be turned into xp for the purpose of Skills and Advantages expanding on their familiarity with the Unicorn (such as Allies, Languages, Ranks in Lore: Linguistics or Lore: Gaijin Culture, Battle, Cannon, Firearms, Horsemanship etc.) up to a half of contribution at a ratio of 1 xp per 10 VIP. Outside of player control, this outcome also will eventually lead to attempts to restore the mirror from available shards and to contact Shinjo in her Shadow prison.

As this is an exercise in convincing Jama, for every 25 VIP invested in the bet 5 more are awarded per level of Devotion of Jama as Ally. Since Yajinden is his delegate in the journey east and Tsugiko his assistant travelling back home and both oversee his interests, for every 50 VIP invested in the bet 5 more are awarded per level of Devotion of Yajinden or Tsugiko as Allies, respectively.

The bet is now open and will run until 30.12.2017. Please note that this is not the only bet for those travelling either direction.

Results:

Shosuro Anzai is chosen to return the Ide mirror to the Grand Vizier!

Anzai - 144 (Sole Bet). Anzai will become the ambassador in the Tarkhanate by default, and can extend it to Shinjo Kaghanate by goal. Whose, depends on the player's choices as he may represent the Scorpion, the Imperial Navy (Jama's expectation) or even Merenae depending on the choices made in Xantellados bet. The amount of VIP he is reimbursed for the goals involving this is 288, and he can lessen it by up to 140 by taking up to 7 xp for related features. Once this is resolved, a narrative for bet resolution will be provided.
