From the wishes of the late Yogo riki and my past husband kakita toshimoko, it had fallen to myself and Yogo sai to continue the alliance which was forged from their friendship. So now with our two clans and auspiciously the snake clan we look to form an alliance.

As such after some searching for suitable locations for a vacant meeting hall within the imperial city of the Jade Empire I have requested the assistance of Nobu-sama, a prominent member of ‘The Kuge’.He is a skilled man in ‘finding’ a great many things and I hope that we could indeed repay the favour in some way in the future.

He has arranged to meet those that are available in the ‘Budding moon tea house’ before the 11th hour on the 3rd day of the New Year celebration or 2nd of Janaur by the Labyrinthian calendar. And to be sure to be equipped suitably for minor mercenary style work, he has most kindly stayed vague on the matter as to why.
As there is a ritual of Balance taking place nearby also later in the day I feel all should bring offerings just in case there is time to pay homage and thank the Kami for returning our friends on the wheel and hopefully thanks for succeeding in the appointed task of the day.

Sadly I will be unable to attend as other matters have occurred that requires my attendance, But if you require anything of me please do not hesitate to ask. I wish you all good health and good fortune in the New Year.

Lady Dansu,

I have recently returned on the wheel myself and assuming I can get out of the Deci gathering on Starsday, alive! I would be honored to be able to assist in continuing to aid in the alliance that Tosh and Riki started.

I am assuming you mean Februar, although no one really understand the Labyrinthian calendar anyway! smile.gif

Would you be able to tell me a little more about Nobu-sama and ‘The Kuge’. Either else where or here?

If you wish me to take anything to the shrine for you, or require any other aid yourself please don't hesitate to ask?

And may the year of the Horse be especially auspicious for you.

Nobu-san the greatest swordsman in the Jade Empire never to have lost a duel.He is the head of the Merchant Society of the Falling blossom a man of great resource and wealth.

I will not be able to join you as I still have business to attend to in the west,but I will send one of my Daimyo's.I might even get up as far as Deci, always was a interesting city to city.

This is only true owing to the fact that my late husband, whom was heralded by many clans to be the finest swordsman in all of the Jade Empire and had never lost a duel, is dead.

I have heard many a tale and read poems of his great skill with the sword, shame I did not meet him before he turned upon the wheel.

I don't believe I have lost a duel either,but then I have now retired from dueling if I remember my last duel was against a Penanggalan.

My Lords,

My apologies for my interruption, however the information I bring will be of some import to our excursion to the shrines.

As I am a Temple Sohei, I speak with some authority on the matters of Shrine etiquette and I wish to provide wisdom for those in need of it.

The Temple of Balance has three shrines dedicated within it, Life, Death and Mortality. These represent Tengoku (Heaven), Jigoku (Hell) and Ningen-do (The Mortal Realm). For these shrines you will need:
  • Life: A seed , a Haiku on Life , something made of pure Jade (hard to come by, but not impossible) or a Origami formed creature - Basically something to symbolise life (but not "living" this comes later)
  • Death: Something that is already dead (but not killed upon the altar, this would be very bad...), a dead flower, or a skull of a hunted quarry, or something corrupted, a Haiku on Death.
  • Mortality: A haiku about something that is living, a everyday object to do with your profession or even everyday life, food, perhaps even currency (remember to present it in a red envelope to prevent insulting the Spirits!)
Whilst it is good Karma for all to place gifts, it will be likely the clans as a whole could be represented by their respective leadership gifting for the Clan as whole, but the gifts may need to be larger (or more impressive) to appease the Kami for the larger group. While this list is specific in it's gifts, these are far from all of them, as long as the gift represents the shrines aspect in some way, any gift should suffice.

I hope this was of some help to you, my Lords

your servant,

Dai-Doji To-shi

Its good to Hear from you Tirack-san.
I wish you good luck in Deci this coming Starsday.

I am sorry for not explaining the Kuge to you, being new to our lands. The Kuge are a group of powerful Families that have sway in the emperors Courts, but they have no Clan or Lands dues to various reasons. The Crane have had Direct dealing with The Pearl Family in the past, another Kuge Family, who lost their lands to mists many years ago.
Nobu is a little unique, he has no other family living to my knowledge but does own his own house in Miatto and he known to find things.

I hope this is of some use to you.

Lady Dansu,

My apologies for my delayed response, there are other matters taking up a great deal of my time.

That said, I will be in attendance on the 3rd Day, in order to honor the Temple of Balance, and to aid in cementing this new alliance.

The Year of The Horse shall begin with New Friends and Old, acting as one, in The Emperors name.

Tirack-san, should time be pressing, there is a 'Dove Tavern' in Scarlene that houses a pathway to the Imperial City, it is considerably quicker than traveling by Ship. Speak to one Lucuis Tremmens, and inform him that I will bear the costs of your travel.

Hello my old friend.
We know you are not the end.
Saying goodbye hurts.

Would these be of use to us?
