Man is that a question Smile So the Original answer was yes... and I picked out the Art I wanted and started trying to contact the Artish (group) and after 2 months of Calls and emails from me with no Response.. I had given up. I pestered AEG and was told they sent an email on my behalf as well, but still nothing..

So as of the Writing of you post.. the answer had become No... Sad

Until yesterday Where I Contacted the AEG Art Director(s) directly, plead my case, as he Thought the Concept was solid, and offered up the Art that I was wanting. I say that now as I sit here working on the Layout... I have two Weeks until Vegas, just just barely enough time with Shipping and All, but it looks like it'll work out nicely this year.. Florida is a short two weeks after that, so Fun fun fun Smile

I'll be putting preview up in the near Future..

your Groups are always great Fun, and I love the trip out.. Besides I get a couple days Quite time from the 5 Kids..

For me the best thing you can do is Get everyone out and Playing.. the Bonus is that it makes for a great event for everyone else too Smile

The Storyline this year Rocks and the Game is Great, so it's a win win for all involved..

Prior to this year, we Cut to a top 4,8,16,32 etc based on the size of the event and Players Strength of Schedule.

This year we will cut to a Record, meaning that if you have the winning record needed you will make the Cut. Likely 5 wins and 2 losses or better. (6-1, 7-0)

there will be a Play off round that will decide who of all those people will make it further in the event.

There is a full description in the Floor Rules, here : http://www.l5r.com/images/EE-Floor-Rules.pdf

The new cut system is better if a bit more costly in time imo after experiencing it.

Depending on time, Top 16 (if we need it), Top 8, Top 4, will be time depended.. and will be decided on site.
The Simi-finials will likely be

So I just realized that Kolat edition (and therefore proxies) aren't legal for this event. >.< I don't suppose anyone has a copy of At Any Cost I could borrow for the tourney?

The ATL contingent has shrunk down to just me. Everyone else backed out last minute (as normal -_-). Not thrilled at the prospect of 150 in gas.
