Sengoku Horizon

Look towards the Horizon

The Warring States Period: Fierce warlords fought for control of Japan, and many would perish. When a warrior falls, where does the passion they once held go? Possibly into something dear such as a favorite weapon or heirloom. These heirlooms have been labeled as “relics”, and those that carry them are labeled as “Scions." Recently more and more of these special relics have been activating, signaling the start of a great change as ancient power meets the modern world!

Now For The Local News, 04/01/2018 The Chinese delegation have now arrived at the city of Edo. They have come to learn more about the state of Japan, the Shogunate, and it's Scions. We will be having a Lunar New Year's celebration, a school dance, and a combat tournament with them!

So, it went like this: Sometimes, you wonder where it is your cat goes when it leaves for the day, especially when it thinks you're not looking. Cats are independent creatures, like humans, only with far less shame. When you think about it, it has to be like that. They walk around naked, wash themselves in public, and don't really care whose property they wander into. It's how they roll and they just don't give a damn.

Today's little venture features two figures heading down the street. The first is kind of a grey tabby with a compact body, legs and tail that seem short for the body-size involved. He's moving along quite a number of feet ahead of one Makoto Shiyo, owner and operator of said cat. She is a physically-fit short-haired brunette with glasses who - sadly - feels compelled to cover the scars she obtained in an earthquake with long sleeves and socks with her hiking boots. Those boots were getting their use today, though.

You see, this all started with her little brother, Kenji, having a look at their departing cat and wondering where he goes...which he couldn't follow because the cat, Shorty, kept going into other people's properties. You see? No shame or regard for other people's boundaries. Kenji couldn't follow. He was just a kid, AND he was polite. Makoto was generally polite too, but she was also a Scion with decent physical training. She could follow.

And that's what she was doing now, just following her cat and seeing where he goes.

This is a test to see if tags have been fixed. It doubles as a mission notification, because I did not tag your mission on the board, like usual.

Foreign Priest!
May 4 2018, 12:17 PM
A long journey from Edo... First, to the trains, traveling to the southernmost stop on the main line. Then, to catch a boat that is scheduled to ferry them from the mainland to that of the island of Kyushu itself. Finally, there would be a car waiting for them to take them yet further south. The train ride itself would give them plenty of time to consider the impact of the mission. Perhaps the more the merrier, as they were indeed headed for one student's province of origin.

The mission stated that in Kyushu, there was a foreign priest proclaiming that the spirit of the Shimabara Rebellion should not be forgot, that Japan can yet still become a Christian nation and that the people should rise up and break all of Kyushu away from Japan as the first step towards converting this land. However, it would be clear by the tickets the two Bugei members were handed where they were headed, if not by the instructions that followed after. The priest was hitting the people where the effect would be most heartfelt: Hige Province, the area most open to Christianity in Japan. With that area as the center of his focus and outlying provinces gradually worked on, the possibility of conversion and rebellion greatly concerned the Shogunate.

Since it was the Konishi Clan itself that reported on this incident, there was no concern for Viola that she would have to fight her own people. They followed the religion for the sake of it, not because they want to reform the nation. That is dangerous thinking, right there, the reason this must be suppressed. Because of this were to be pursued to its logical conclusion, the Konishis would be considered highly-suspicious themselves. In effect, by reporting this, they were calling for help before this became a true crisis in their area. Viola was not alone in this endeavour. With her was Shinsuke, of the Todo Clan. Where a weapon's edge may not be useful, a diplomat may be just as dangerous, as this may become a war of words and beliefs more than that of the sword and gun.

A long train trip, a more brief ride upon a ferry, and they were in the Northern section of Kyushu. As the two of them exited the docks, they would find what they expected: A couple of men with a car. Not warriors. The Konishi Clan broke tradition in more ways than one. Less trade and more farming, the worship of the Christian God, and a focus on female samurai. These men were servants of the Konishi Clan, their cross-like emblems clearly visible. They both gave the two arrivals a respectful bow before one of them spoke.

"It's good of you come on such short notice. Though the Clan remains largely untouched by this man's words, there are those among the people who feel a certain unrest at the mention of Shimabara, remembering a government that turned its back on the word of the lord. There are those who will even shout openly that the Konishi Clan should make the push this mad priest is calling for, to rebel against the whole of Japan!"

This man was deeply concerned, and no less the one standing beside him, though he kept it more under control as he indicated with his hand for the other to calm himself.

"We must bring you to the capital. We don't know where it is this man hides himself when not speaking to the public, but he has been seen in the area, preaching his word to the public. The people who believe in him shield him from being arrested. Normal measures will not work, not unless we wish to harm friend and foe alike, and that would be the worst..."

He gestured to the car, a sleek black sedan that was roomy inside.

"Come. Let us be on our way."

I've taken the time to post in places where my posts are owed, as I prepare to head off to a convention for the weekend. I tend not to be online at the time, since my focus is really on the con, and I prefer it there to take it all in.

The two things of importance that I can think of, as I go, are thus:

{1} For anyone wondering, I haven't posted in the Kaga Party because I'm specifically in a conversation with Kai there, so I have to wait for him.

{2} My first class topic is waiting on Shoy, at this time. If anyone sees her, poke at her until a reply is made, please.

I'll be back after it's over!

As the students began to file in, they would find Naganori-sensei seated behind the teacher's desk, reading a book. A calm and cultured man, he'd taken time to travel around the world and familiarize himself with the cultures and histories of other people. This would come into play during today's class. For while it wasn't a necessity to have seen the world as he had to teach today's topic, it helped to see and appreciate the thing from the other's perspective. This was a normal class, but in history, nothing was just as straightforward as believed. The further you delve into its background, the more stories you can see.

Once everyone was seated, he bookmarked his page and closed the book, standing up to face them with a smile. It was always good to see such people, eager to learn and expand their horizons. So, with that, class would begin.

"Good afternoon, everyone. Today, we will be exploring the Shimabara Rebellion, a conflict dating from the late 1637 to the early 1638, a span of half a year...and yet it can trace its origins to a key point dating further back. Can anybody tell me when that was, and what that cause might be?"

He waited patiently to see if anyone knew where this was going, right off.
