Our Most Honourable Lady Dansu

Apologies for the delay in this message, a full 7 moons have passed since we made it out of the lost ruins, however just delivering this information to you has been treacherous. It seems that some Shinobi had followed us out the mines that forced me to delay getting this message to you until I had dealt with them.

It is with a heavy heart that I bring you this news as I fear we have traitors in our family. Upon our last journey into the Crane Mines we came across a lost ruin where our Terracotta army was once formed. It was again fully operational and was being worked on by humans not of natural form. We came across crane members, farmers and the like which were being taken, corrupted by magic and forced into labour.

It was becoming apparent that dark forces were at play and the Oni were trying to amass an army of Terracotta Soldiers of their own to annihilate the Crane Clan and then march on the Jade Empire. The lost ruins were awash with Shinobi, Shadow Clan warriors, Shadow Demons and even some corrupted Terracotta warriors.

More disturbing news arose as I came across a message left for the Oni in charge which implicated our families very own Dengoji Hamatsu as being in league with the Shadow Clan. The message is as follows.

“Oni-No-Ryu

You have disappointed me greatly
I entrusted you with expeditionary forces to lay ground work to undermine the Crane. I elevated you to true Oni status rather than languish in your original form. Gave you access to the Shadow Clan’s resources. How am I repaid? Defeat and failure on your part!

Are you clearly not capable of your task? You were meant to stay hidden in a lost ruin while corrupting the Crane’s Terracotta soldiers to become my army to crush the Crane and then march them onto the centre of the Jade Empire. But NO! You couldn’t even manage to stay low! Even when these pathetic clansmen entered your halls you couldn’t manage to kill them and keep your location secret.

So I have sent Kenji and contingent of heavy Bushi and Shinobi to keep you company and ensure your plans stay on course and should any more “Heroes” wander into your halls they will be quickly destroyed. You are to treat them as if I had come myself. I hope this is understood. Once you are on top of your situation and the plan finalised you are to travel to the Goji Fortress located in the Northern Isles and meet with Dengoji Hamatsu and work with him to ensure his work with the Fire Giants is also prepared.

Do NOT fail me again, you would not enjoy the outcome

Oni-No-Tsuba”

Lady Dansu, I await your decision on how you would like me to act on this news, however it clear that swift action must be taken as I fear that Shinobi now lie in wait around the Crane isles. If you wish for me to travel to the Goji Fortress I will.

Upon discovering this letter I was shocked having stood side by side with Dengoji Hamatsu. Believing I had cleared all the traps, when leaving the room I had grab what was needed and set off the last trap killing one of our own Kensi, Junichi Kazan, who up until that point had been most brave. For this I can only apologies, such failure to ensure safety will not happen again my lady.

Gerald also joined us on our travels my lady, and as always it was a pleasant addition to the company and with his many talents kept the party going, he once again proved what a friend he is the Crane family and Council as a whole.

As always I await your command

On the 24th of the 11th month a group went to the Goji Fortress, from my understanding Oni-no-Ryu was defeated but his body was taken? do we know who took the body and to where?

We still need to find those terracotta warriors.

The scorpion shinobi are an old enemy, believed, or at least hoped that they had been wiped out, but like all vermin, it is a difficult task.

As for the Blood magics, this is another matter, some of those that were affiliated with Diago Yajinden were know to it use. In the last decade Blood magic has been frowned upon within the Crane, for the very reason to what happened on that Fortress.

If we can work out were this creature is, maybe we will find the terracotta warriors and finally destroy this threat, I propose that those who can meet on the last Sunsday of this month.

Humbly

Ningyou Dansu

Most Honoured Lady Dansu,

I would be honoured to return to the home of the Crane once more and to offer what help a lone blade can.

I have much I would like to discuss in person with you and seek your guidance upon.
