From Kichirou to Daisuke

Dear Brother,

I know we have parted on ill terms, but I must write to tell you of what has been offered to me. Shinjo Haruko has offered for me to join the Unicorn clan, I could not accept her knowing that you and your family would be left to winds. When we spoke I asked her if your family, our family could join the Unicorn clan, she said that if you are willing to take up the responsibilities of a samurai you may.

Brother I know you have a warriors heart, we stood side by side and pulled through every battle. Joining will give you and I wealth and security. Such a choice will give you the ability to raise your children in a far better life than we ever had.

Please Consider this offer Brother Kichirou

Quest 6

The players left Ryoko Owari and chased the rumor of the crane samurai to Beiden Pass.

Ramblings of Takashi

Ronin, why must it always be ronin.

Perhaps it is punishment for my failures, and if so most deserved, but i yearn to work with those who take their positions seriously. The new leader sent by my clan is more reserved, but it is to early to tell if she will prove a worthy leader. At least i hope she will not spend her time hitting on the magistrate.

Thus far we are victorious, though my injuries leave me feeling less then enthusiastic. Still, the magistrate lives and i have gained a true ally i think for my efforts.

On that note the Ronin who would call me coward, they have been offered a great honor. Adoption into the Unicorn clan. Were i in such a position there would be no question of acceptance, but being clanless must twist ones mind for there is a degree of doubt as to their choice.

Regardless my time spent healing, though painfully slow, has granted me time to perfect a new technique, and given all things that we now face i feel i shall be soon putting it to work.

Story to Date

Late in the evening 2 weeks ago a crab clan Samurai, by the name Hida Kumara, was found dead in a house of ill repute on Teardrop Island, in the city of Ryoko Owari. It was a servant who discovered him, the name of the establishment was the House of Falling Plum Blossoms. Witnesses claim the man’s head was removed, and a slight man in red… or blood splattered kimono was said to have been seen fleeing the scene. Later one such witness, a lion clan samurai named Akoto Genshi, positively identified Shosuro Hametsu, as the Crab’s guest in the common room, and based on the physical description of the suspect fleeing (slight, wearing red), on the surface they seem to be the same man.

Shosuro Hametsu was not found at the scene, and no one remembers when he left the establishment. In fact, no one seems to know where he is at all.

Because the lion bushi is of insufficient social status for his word to be enough to arrest a major lord, the empire has asked for a full investigation. Which is where you all come in. If you can convince Shinjo Haruko of the identity of the actual murderer, you will have carried out the will of the emperor in this matter. As Shinjo Haruko has the authority to judge even a man of Shosuro Hametsu’s status in this matter.
