Emilia the Sage comes to Sword...

Basically she's like the regular Emilia, except she doesn't completely suck. She gets more wizard stances, including levitation.

The catch is, though, they aren't giving her out freely, basically a lottery system, a random person buying gold (well, lacquers) this weekend will get her.

Lottery systems and random grab bags are one of the ways a company can squeeze the most possible money out of a devoted fan base. Because people will go crazy trying to get a super-rare item. This is the basis for collectible card (and other) games.

I know K2 has to make money off this game, but cash grabs like this are pretty tacky
