Rise, Sun Goddess!

Konnichiwa, honorable backers.

We're still riding the wave of the Dynasty Invasion Optional Buy, which has helped us unlock one more Stretch Goal, giving all backers the Jinmenju Monster!

 

It's finally time to honor the rising Sun itself!

If we reach $2,880k all backers will get the luminous Amaterasu, including her figure and Kami card.

Amaterasu is the goddess of the sun, bringing great honor to her subjects. The Clan with the highest Force at her Temple during each Kami Turn immediately climbs to the very top of the Honor Track.

The player with the most influence with Amaterasu can choose to Consume one of their worshipping Shinto to activate Amaterasu's Kami Power: During a Harvest Mandate, if you win the Harvest Reward of a Province you may automatically kill one local figure belonging to each Clan that has lower Honor than you.

      @Brian Muller the Blood Rage box with all the extras was gigantic.

      That Amaterasu figure is the best one yet! I'm glad that everyone who gets this game will get her (and the other kami).

      How is all this stuff going to fit in the box?

      @Tor Iver Wilhelmsen As I mentioned, they did something similar with Massive Darkness and Black Plague. Eric Lang has said several times that he considers Rising Sun to be the spiritual sucessor of Blood Rage (as both games have a lot of similarities), so it would make sense to create an optional buy for that. They would basically have to create a few blood rage cards and powers to acomodate the Rising Sun monsters there, and vice-versa.

      As for the theme, it don't have to make sense, as it's an optional buy. But you could always imagine that those monsters from the norse mythology ended up in japan for some reason, or that the monsters from japan ended up on the surounding areas of Yggdrassil. Also, the gods from one game could work on the other as well, but that would be a little trickier, as not everybody has the Gods of Asgard expansion, so I don't know if that would have such an apeal as a buy, but could always be a extra besides the monsters on the same buy.

      @Panon I am sure someone will make some PDFs for using Blood Rage minis in Rising Sun (or vice versa), but it probably will be some BGG users and not EML; not too many of them will fit thematically with the mythologies involved.

      It would be cool to have an optional buy to use some of the monsters from Blood Rage in Rising Sun and vice-versa!

      Similar to what happened in Massive Darkness and Black Plague hehe

      So we can see that two of the remaining Kami are Hachiman and Raijin, but who would be the third? Inari?

      She might seem strong, but she's going to be difficult to use I think. It has to be your or your teammates harvest while you control her. I'm psyched to try though

      @Akira, yes., in most of the ancient world, snakes were a symbol of knowledge (so they appear in a lot of cultures/history)

    15. Akira on

      is that a snake she's holding?

      Another way to easily kill monsters. Monsters come with too much risk and little reward. Same as Blood Rage. Easily add monster stretch goals because they have little impact on game balance. Only a bald hypothesis. But I still like the a Kami gods unbound mechanic and appreciate them. Add a card that can protect a monster from hostage/betrayal without becoming a daimyo.

      Hell YEAH Amaterasu. Looking as regal as she should.

      Now I just need her transform into a wolf with a paintbrush.

      Based off the wording you can kill an ally too? Interesting twist. I'm assuming you can pick and choose which clans to kill one of etc, so you can bargain and get coins instead
