    Your Disciple visits the Shogun. For this, you receive 1 Prestige Point.

  • Gain an audience with the Bakufu



    You receive new orders. Gain the top card of one Mission Card deck of your choice.

  • Relax at the Bower



    Visiting the Bower allows players to change the player order.

    Whoever is the first to activate a Disciple at the Bower to change the player order automatically activates the entire Bower. (Important: This does not apply when the activating player uses his Disciple to complete a Mission).

    When a player activates the Bower, adjust the player order in the following manner:

    1. Move all Markers on the Player Order Track slightly to the right, preserving their order.

    2. The player with a Disciple on the lowest number of the Bower places his marker onto any position on the Player Order Track.

      Then the player (if any) with a Disciple on the next-lowest number of the Bower places his marker onto any free position on the Track. Then the remaining player (if any) at the Bower does the same.

    3. After that, the players who do not have a Disciple at the Bower place their Markers back onto the Player Order Track, starting with the one whose marker is farthest up and continuing downwards.

      Each of them in turn must place his marker onto the lowest numbered free spot remaining on the Player Order Track.

    4. Finally, all Disciples at the Bower return to their Clan Houses.

    The new player order immediately takes effect. The Action Phase proceeds with the player whose Marker on the Player Order Track is now positioned directly after the player who just activated his Disciple at the Bower.

    Note: Always keep this in mind when you need to have a Disciple in the Castle District to complete a Mission:

    When it is placed at the Bower, another player may activate his Disciple first to change the player order and thereby remove your Disciple from the Bower along with his own.
