Kyuden Caerdydd - Spirit of Bushido
Daidoji Trading Council
Replaces: Doji Courtier 3, Doji Magistrate 3, Daidoji Iron Warrior 3, Daidoji Scout 3
Requirements: Commerce (Merchant) 3, and either Gentry or Wealthy Advantages. The Advantage can be waived if the character has established themselves as a Merchant in other ways.
Rank 3: The Golden Path
Once per month you may wage commercial warfare against a rival merchant by making a Contested Roll of Commerce (Merchant) / Awareness against the rival merchant patron. If you succeed, you inflict a loss on that merchant, a number of koku equal to the amount by which your roll exceeded theirs. If you lose the Contested Roll, you lose half that amount of koku. If the GM allows you to purchase additional Advantages (or Ranks in existing Advantages) after character creation, you may purchase Gentry, Wealthy, and Servants for 1 less Experience Point (to a minimum of 1). If the GM is using the optional rules for Merchant Patrons from the Way of the Daimyo Appendix in Emerald Empire (page 288-290), you gain 3 Station points for taking this Path, and 1 additional Station point every six months.
