As the sun set on Starsday evening, the lands of the Snake fell into a quiet hush. The lack of noise was almost serene. For the previous two days the wind had been unrelenting, funnels of tornadoes had been seen streaking across the sky, touching down, and then moving on.

Word of strange creatures and even stranger storms had reached the ears of even the lowest Eta.

Then on Starsday morning Masayoshi Chu, Magistrate of the Jade Court and Voice of the Snake Clan had been seen leading out an extremely odd force, consisting entirely of non Amlesians other than himself. His destination was the small village of Shadouhebi, which had been a focus of this tornado activity.

As this small relief force arrived the banners of the Snake Defenders were lifted higher, and the storm grew louder and stronger. A massive funnel of swirling wind set down outside of the village and three distinct forces were seen to head out to surround this forlorn hope.

Only then was it noticed that these forces were Oni.

Somehow, they had found a way past the wall, riding these funnels of destruction which caused the sky to be filled with dust and debris. The sounds of battle were heard from outside and for many miles around and after a few hours a great shriek was heard as one of the foul Oni generals was defeated.

Perhaps Shadouhebi would not be lost today.

Lion Clan forces in the area altered their march, then entered the Village to bolster the defences.

Fast acting Panama Strike Teams, now alerted to this new enemy threat, raced from the wall to assault the third army wreathed in darkness that was massing outside of the village.

But strangest of all, was the appearance of unknown Banners, emblazoned with the image of a Jade Serpent.

Who these were, none will speak about in anything but hushed whispers.

This new force struck the second army as they were starting their assault on the village like hammer, shattering through the lines, but not stopping the assault that poured around them in to the village.

Battle was joined and at its height morale started to flag as rumours circulated amongst the defenders that Masayoshi had been snatched, but this did not deter the foreigners who had come to save this village. Sounds of battle rang out for a time, but then seemed to just become the sounds of two combatants until, eventually, another shriek and the remaining Oni forces turned and fled straight into the waiting swords of Jade Banner bearers.

As Panama Strike teams continued to attack the darkness wreathed army Masayoshi, apparently hale and hearty, was seen to lead his force directly into the eye of the storm; how could any hope to survive this natural disaster?

All was thought to be lost, until just before dusk when the great funnel was seen to unravel from a great distance. When it had fully dissipated the heroes were standing on a perfectly flat and smooth field.
