In 2009, L5R released the first of a three part expansion, The Imperial Gift. This is a completely FREE expansion of 150 cards totally legal for tournament play in the new Celestial Edition format.

Imperial Gift II will release August 1 at participating game stores. This set features two fully playable 40/40 decks, designed around teaching the new player Legend of the Five Rings. Featuring all nine Clans as well as unaligned characters, the Imperial Gift II gets you right into the world of the Emerald Empire.

For more information, visit the Imperial Gift page at L5R.com.

How do I get my local game store to be a "participating" game store?

If they are not on the Stronghold Store list (found via the above link to the IG page), then just ask them to contact AEG at customerservice@alderac.com and we'll get them set up!

If all of my local stores are Stronghold Level 0 will they still be able to get the Imperial Gift 2? You'd think living in Los Angeles I'd have an easier time finding a store that actively supports L5R than I have. My newly formed L5R group would love to get our hands on this!

It is automatically sent to those stores level 1 or higher, if your store is a 0, please have them call and/or email to request it.

Thanks!

And if your FLGS can't get it, is there any other option? And is there a way to get Imperial Gift I still? I am not seeing it on the online store.

I really wish I didn't have to go 70+ miles to get to my Stronghold Store. Alas, my local game store has told me they aren't interested. Hopefully I'll be able to get Imperial Gift II when I go visit family in the winter or something.

I never have understood a game store refusing free promotional material that customers want, but hey, it's happened before.

Anyway, it will likely end up on the online store soon, however we do want the retailers who support us to have the first glory at giving it out. Just a thank you to them. Once it is on the store it will be free though there will be a nominal shipping charge. That's the main reason why we try to do the majority of it through the store when we can.

I am thankful for the store I have. Great place, great owner. Sadly, no L5R players.

Hey Todd,

Do you know if there's any way to get IG1 anymore? I'm certain no stores around here have any left, and I just jumped back in to the game... Thanks.

If anyone is thinking of checking out L5r - I highly recommend grabbing a set of IG2. A nice introduction / sealed pack that should cover all the basics of the game, and make you more aaware of the deeper strategies in L5R.

I was lucky enough to playtest the set - and I think it's really good.

Our quantities have gotten low on IG1, and since we don't have another print run coming up for a few months we've pulled it off our online store and now simply do it on a per request basis. Send an email to customerservice@alderac.com and explain your situation to them, they'll get to it next week!

Since these big sets of promos are being given free, we have to piggy-back them on normal print runs to make it affordable, otherwise we'd just print more up right now. ;)
