Most Noble Family,

It was my intention to deliver this message in person to you, however I have been unfortunately delayed in a peace and trade treaty gathering of old families in the capital of Lataraman which is making me joining you difficult. This message is to be treated with utmost importance and I am passing on my Right of Freedom to Act granted me by the Emperor to any of you able to gather. This is the first time that permission has been granted by Imperial blessing for this to happen so I trust that NONE of you will abuse it and that all of you will act solely in our Family's best interest. Indeed, on this occasion, you will be acting in the best interests of all of the Empire. What I am about to share with you is of very limited knowledge amongst the other families; it is not to be shared at this time with others. If, and when, that changes I will inform you.


At the close of the year celebration, during the Feast of the Fallen, this past month, our Beloved Emperor was taken by a thrall of some kind. He became motionless, his breathing almost halted, and his skin took on the pallor of death. Fear not, he is quite safe now for this episode lasted all but a day and he is in good health and unaffected. However, it was evident that His Imperial Majesty had been the target of a Ritualistic attack. Not himself directly, but the Lands. In a similar fashion to the Empress of Labyrinthia, His Majesty is linked to the core and fabric of our homeland through his Jade Throne. If it is attacked, He feels that sting directly as an attack upon Him.

Deep investigations were immediately undertaken and it has taken until this past week to truly uncover the extent of the attack. I will share with you what we now know.

On the Eve of the Year's End, during the Feast, a large ritual was completed somewhere within our Homelands. We have identified those responsible to be a cult calling themselves The Dark Phoenix. This ritual, undetected, undisturbed and not undone was, at first, thought to be nothing of great concern. That was until this past week. A Samaurai in the outlying provinces failed to serve his Lady effectively and asked to take his own life. This was agreed and the warrior completed the necessary actions to appease his Honour.

At the moment of his death, His Majesty's inner circle of Soul Priests usually feel the severing of his life's link and watch the soul move on to the Great Wheel in the Heavens. This time, this did not happen. The soul was prevented from entering Heaven's Pathway and was, instead, sent somewhere in the Shadow Lands, the Hells where it is now to linger and suffer for all time.

Immediately following this, the investigations deepened and it was discovered that the Ritual was to blame. The Cult of The Dark Phoenix have entered into a bargain with one of the Dark Oni, which one exactly is unclear at this time. Regardless of the individual, it is one of deep and malevolent power. It will surely be drawing sustenance and influence from this Ritual, itself glad of the increased suffering and pain being brought to our Home.

It is my understanding that similar rituals were targeted upon Labyrinthia recently.

The result of this is that any of our people seeking to move onto The Great Wheel by act of Noble Seppuku to clear their blemished Name will not pass into the Celestial Light, and instead languish, suffer and fuel the Oni.

I do not need to tell you the severity of this news. If this were to become general knowledge, the result amongst the populace would be catastrophic. It would spread fear, panic and chaos among them

In light of this, His Majesty has tasked us, the Oldest of the Noble Families, to attempt to rectify this problem. The Emperor, The Golden Light of Heaven, has issued an edict among the Family Heads ordering no agreed Seppuku rituals are to be allowed until this is solved. Anyone wishing to enter The Great Wheel in this fashion is to carry their burden under resolution has been found.

His Imperial Majesty has declared that He will personally grant his blessing and favour on the name of anyone in this situation who is forced to carry their burden longer than would normally be expected, or desired by Him as a result of this.


You should make plans to gather shortly. Upon the agreed day, His Majesty will send an envoy to meet with you to discuss this and plan your course of action. I am deeply saddened not to be able to leave the trade agreements to be with you. However, I shall be with you in Heart and Soul and send you my truest blessings and respect at this time.

Yours,

Khyryhm Panama
Daimyo of Lu Chang Province
Warlord of The Light of Heaven.

Lord Khyryhm Panama,

Many Years have I been travelling returning favours and repaying
debts to those who have aided me and the family in the past, and all has gone
very well. I am a long way from our home but I can see it in my mind and cherish
it with all my heart. I will begin preparations to return as soon as possible but I fear that
I will not make this date, I am changed from when you new me and I am still learning my
new arts, I have left my mortal shackles and become a fate in the service of the celestial
Emperor, perhaps he knew this shadow was rising and this is why he asked me to accept
this new role. I am still and always will be Panama, forgive me my Lord for being unable
to attend quickly, but be assured I will return to aid the family.

As you knew me,

Lady Kili Panama

My Lord. If you wish I could transport you to any place you wish and be only away from your meetings for minimal time. If you wish to speak to anyone face to face. :-)

Thryn,

If only it were that simple. I would, of course, want to be there with you all. However these ambassadors responsible for travel to and from the trade talks are being ..........difficult.

Another time.

Khyryhm.
