When Emperor Tokugawa-Edo came to power, following the great catastrophe of the year 47 of the Machine Age, he resolved to abandon technology. He refocused the society around the 9 traditional Bushido values that made the past greatness of the empire. During 40 years of reign, and in total autarky with respect to the rest of the world, the Empire was transformed, far from the turpitudes of the modern world, building the foundations of a better, fairer world, in harmony with nature and following the path traced by Bushido. The catastrophe had transformed the world, reopening the telluric faults, rekindling the magic for those who could channel it. Tokugawa-Edo san was one of them and his empire prospered. When Tokugawa-Edo died, without leaving an heir, the Empire was divided and the era of prosperity and peace of the last 40 years came to an end. Gradually and during the following decade, the territory was divided into shogunates. Weakened, divided, deprived of leadership, the territory became a source of covetousness for outside powers.
As a Daimyo, you want to restore the Empire to its former grandeur, to regain the prosperity of yesteryear, and to finally open your Empire to the outside world to prevent it from sinking. But to do so, you will need to establish your authority over the rest of the pretenders to the throne. Whether it is through your devotion to natural powers, your ability to gather under your banners or by the power of the sword, you will have to establish your reputation to restore the Empire and bring prosperity to the whole territory.
