"So the mines are all closing?"
"No, of course not. The mines around that area. Out of respect of course."
"Apologies, did you two say the mines are being closed?"

Yau-Sinjo exhaled slowly with a sigh. Retelling this was becoming tiresome.

"There was a vine of black jade discovered in one of our oldest mines. While excavating it, miners uncovered an old shrine, perhaps one of the oldest ever uncovered in our lands."
"What was the shrine for? Was it for an old daimyo? A samurai? A totem?"

Yau-Sinjo slammed his sake cup on the table in frustration. "If you would do me the honour of letting me finish, perhaps you would find out!"

"The shrine was dedicated to Tsuyo-sa Goto Jin, a samurai of the Jade Dragon, along with murals of what seem to be their accomplishments over the course of their lifetime. If the stories are accurate, this samurai was a great monster slayer, a destroyer of scores of oni, tengu and other beasts. A great, great warrior, who's rest is well deserved and should not be disturbed.
The mining operations around the shrine have been halted, as they should be, out of respect for Samurai Tsuyo-sa Goto Jin. Besides, no doubt there will be many that will wish to pay their respects to such a noble samurai and learn of their deeds. I know I would. For example, did you know that they once.."

Approaching the table, where now a small gathering of people listened to the tales upon the murals of the samurai's burial chamber, a new voice piped up.
"Sinjo-san! Did you hear they were closing the mines??"
