The Bowman's Wager

The Bowman’s Wager is the greatest archery tournament in Rokugan, held every year as a weeklong event at the Imperial Winter Court.

The Bowman’s Wager of 1170 was won by Yoritomo Kenzan, who triumphed over his fellow Mantis Tsuruchi Shuu in the finals by goading him into attempting a shot in the freezing cold water of a reflecting pool. Shuu’s subsequent passing out from hypothermia resulted in Kenzan being declared the winner of the Bowman’s Wager, as well as earning him half of his dubious title: Thundering Duelist of Reflecting Waters.
