The Legend of Beiden Pass
Deal With It.
For centuries the Lion and Scorpion have fought for control over Beiden pass, the most accessible pass through the Spine of the World. However after the latest incident, the Emperor had enough. Instead of granting control of the area to the Scorpion (who had attacked after all the Lion samurai came down with a mysterious illness), he took personal responsibility for the area and assigned an Imperial governor to take over.
This does not go over well with most of the clans, so after much politicking and backroom dealing, the resources made available to the Governor are far from adequate.
The PCs are in charge of making this Imperial province work in spite of the overwhelming opposition. Some example Imperial positions available include: Imperial Governor, Emerald Magistrate, Ruby Commander, Jade Magistrate, Imperial
Spy Secretary, Imperial Merchant, or Imperial Diplomat.
