Last Friday we brought you the outside of an Emperor Edition starter box, so let’s go inside this time. Each starter deck comes in a clan-specific box. The box exterior has the Clan mon on two sides, a bit of story on the bottom, a Clan quote on the top, and artwork on the other two sides (including the Clan Champion). The box bottom has artwork on the four interior sides (including the Clan Guidance and the Clan House Guard).
Of course, there’s stuff inside the starter decks too:
For those of you counting along, in addition to the 40/40/3 fully constructed deck, each starter comes with the three other Strongholds, four random EE rares, three booster packs (one each of Emperor Edition, Second City, and Before the Dawn), a 150-page full-color rulebook (very small pages, so not as much text as it sounds like), a clan-specific fiction, six pages of tokens skewed towards the kind that might be useful for the Clan (+1F Fire tokens for Dragon, Favor tokens for Crane, -2GC tokens for Mantis, Poison tokens for Scorpion, etc.), and all of this random stuff:
In addition to the playable cards, each EE starter deck comes with “bio” cards for the Clan Champion, Clan Kami, the Clan, and the other 8 Personalities in the deck. There’s also the “Experience a Personality” card, that you can send in with one of the 8 normal bio cards in an effor to get that Personality an Experienced version. There are rules reminder cards, advertising/info cards (e.g., “Kotei 2012: Claim Lands For Your Clan” and a reminder about the charity card Stone of Remembrance), a clan Imperial Favor token, and 5 koku (replacing the 4 koku box tab you used to get in starter decks).
Emperor Edition starter decks are set to release later this month.
