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, 02/17/2018 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!

It had been a long time since the interview series had taken place. After all, Edo Bugei had been involved in a year long struggle against the Ikko Ikki both in and out of the public eye. However, as things had started settling down infamous senior reporter Fukushima Kosaka had not only survived but fully planned to restart her series!

Everyone's favorite brown haired, hazel eyed master reporter had found a promising crop of new targets and full intended to dive into her new interview series! With my awesome red and blue detective uniform, super cute blue colored panda bag, and amazing penmanship!


Kosaka: "EXCUSE ME! EXCUSE ME! Sanada-san! My name is Kosaka, I'm with the school newspaper. Do you have a minute I'd really love to interview you for an upcoming editorial we are writing!"

The girl was well known in Edo Bugei as a master journalist and was currently approaching Hana at top speed, pen and paper in hand ready to get the latest scoop!

It was early in the morning, at the start of the hour of the dragon as a large group of Edo Bugei students, both scions and traditional students, gathered at Edo's docks. The students had gotten a message a few days prior that the Chinese diplomatic group would be arriving today and that the school wanted to have a proper showing. The morning fishing crews had already come in with their catches of various fatty fish far off the coast and had started locking down their boats as crews carried off the fish they would sell later in the day towards warehouses with large coolers in them. The sound of seagulls and ocean waves hitting the shore would block out most sounds as a cold breeze moved between boat and student alike, with the scents of water, fish, and salt filling the student's nostrils.

In the distance a large, wooden boat with four sails. Each sail was beautiful red cloth. Looking at the boat from the shore, Headmaster Hosokawa smiled.
"Students, this style of boat is called a Sampan. Though normal sampan aren't usually this large. I see our visitors have decided to arrive in style." standing next to him two teachers had come with him. The head combat professor, Yagyu-Sensei
and the head foreign language and archery instructor Sato Mizuha, aka Mizuha-sensei as she prefered to be called. As the boat got closer two Chinese students, around the age of the Bugei students, could be seen gazing at the students.

A young man with black hair and a rather uninterested look upon his face. gazed out at the city in the distance.
"So this is Edo. I guess it isn't all that different from Shanghai." said Zihao. He then turned to the woman next to him, wearing a rather serious face.
"I simply hope they don't act hostile towards you, lord Zihao." she said as she seemed to glare at the gathered students on the docks. The man couldn't help but laugh a bit as he backed away from the front of the boat, knowing his guard wouldn't move unless he did.
"It will be fine, Yiting. Though, I think I want to say hello." and with that the black haired boy began to glow with a bright blue aura as he held his hand up. A massive amount of energy gathering in his palm as the ball of blue light then left his hand, shooting straight up and exploding in mid air with the symbol.

"Let them all understand, the inheritor of Cao Cao, first lord of Wei, has arrived upon the land of the rising sun." he said with a large laugh as he deactivated his relic. Back on the shore Headmaster Hosokawa sighed a bit
"The inheritor of Cao Cao, first lord of the kingdom of Wei, during China's Three Kingdoms Era. As well as his bodyguard, Xiahou Dun of Wei." he told the students.
"On the mainland, Scions are referred to as "inheritors". Since they "inherit" the abilities of another." Mizuha-sensei explained.

A few minutes later various crew could be heard speaking Chinese as the boat finally docked. First off the boat came a man who looked older than Headmaster Hosokawa. He was a serious looking man who couldn't help but smile when he saw the Headmaster.
he didn't introduce himself yet, instead waiting for the six people he had brought with him to follow. Right behind him stood the two the students had seen a few minutes prior. The smiling black haired boy and his rather serious looking bodyguard. The older gentleman seemed to look at the smiling boy with a glare that clearly told him to settle down.

Following them came two older looking boys. They appeared to be around the age of third or fourth year students. One of them had a white eye-patch and a serious look on his face. He gave a polite bow to the group from Edo-Bugei as he stood by the group's leader. Following him was another, equally serious boy with spiked hair and holding a large spear. The boy with the spear also gave a bow to the group.

Finally, the last two came off the boat. Two girls who couldn't be more different if they tried. One of them a girl with red headphones, long black hair, as a curious look on her face. She seemed to be examining each and every student that had gathered. The other was a pink haired girl in a beautiful red dress, who seemed to be instantly staring at the third and fourth years that had gathered from the school, a slight glare in her eyes as though she was ready to fight them at a moments notice. As all seven of the delegation had come off the boat the boat's staff began docking and unloading the boat as the group's leader loudly declared.
"BOW!" he ordered. All six gave a deep bow as Headmaster Hosokawa looked at the assembled students to do the same. Thuse both groups gave each other a deep bow as the Chinese delegation's leader stepped forward.

"It is a pleasure to meet you, students of Edo Bugei. My name is Sun Yi Huang. Leader of this expeditionary group and Head Teacher of Beijing Academy." he then looked at the stuck up boy from earlier who had created the massive symbol in the air. He stepped forward, lookin at the assembled group as though everyone was beneath him excpt the woman next to him.
"Zihao Men. I am the inheritor of Cao Cao, Lord of Wei." he said, half expecting those around him to bow. Stepping forward and lightly elbowing him in the ribs the serious looking woman from earlier also bowed.
"My full name is Yiting Deng. Inheritor of general Xiahou Dun and personal guard to my lord Zihao." she said as the two quickly backed away from the front. Following that up the two older looking boy. The one with the eye patch who had been polite bowed and smiled at the Bugei students.
"I am Chao Guang. Pleasure to meet you all. I am the inheritor of lord Liu Bei of Shu." and with that the boy with the spear also stepped forward.
"I am his guard, Fai Cheng. Inheritor of the Shu general Zhao Yun." and with that the two stepped back. The final two girls just side eyed one another, as though daring the other to be the first to step forward. As the two kept glaring the Headmaster, looking slightly irked, pointed at the girl with pink hair and then pointed to the spot the others had been standing at. This caused the pink haired girl to huff a bit and glare harder at the girl with the red headphones as she moved forward.
"Jiao Meili. Lu Bu." she said with a fierce glare back at the other girl as she stepped forward, graceful as looking at the assembled Bugei Students with determined eyes.
"My name is Fangyuan Yen. It is nice to meet you students of Edo Bugei. I am the inheritor of Lu Xun, strategist of the kingdom of Wu. The Sun family extend their condolences for the losses you have suffered at the hands of the rebel monks." she said and gave the deepest bow of the group as the delegation's Head Teacher stepped forward again, extending his hand to Headmaster Hosokawa.

Edo Bugei's leader shook his hand with a deep smile as he looked back at his own group. The students had been asked to assemble at the docks a few days prior in order to put on a good showing for the Chinese delegation. Every student had been sent a text and they had all arrived by train to Southern Edo before the boat had arrived.
"I trust you all to introduce yourselves as well." he ordered.

"老人? 老人?" a voice called out in the darkness. It was a quiet whisper into a ear piece as around the figure, in the dead of night, the cold winds of the north blew around. Inside a large boat with red sails, currently in route for the Japanese city of Edo, two people stood listening. The inside of the ship had only two small lanterns on, swinging side to side as the boat rocked along with the evening waves. One of them a young woman with white clothing and long black hair. The other was in fact, by all accounts "An old man".
"Clear." the man said simply. Back in the North the figure, covered in a thick white cloak, held up binoculars and gazed out from the woods at the quiet town in front of him. A small down in the dark of night, smoke coming from various chimneys.
"十二个人。 黑色长袍." the figure said. On the boat the young lady and old man nodded to one another. Over the communications relay they would hear foot steps, lightly crushing snow as they moved forward. The person's heavy breathing coming through the ear piece.
"听不见" the person said as more crunchy could be heard. Instantly both figures in the boat looked offended.
"NO! DON'T!" the girl suddenly cried out as the sound of multiple blades piercing into flesh and sawing against bone could be heard as the figure on the other side of the earpiece gave a blood curdling scream.
"Что это?" a gruff sounding voice asked.
"грязный шпион" a second voice said as it gritted its teeth, pulled out it's blade, and rammed it back into the Chinese agent.
"кто твой хозяин?" one of the killers asked. Followed by the sound of head shaking. The various weapons could be heard leaving the agent's body and blood falling onto the snow. Then a rapid series of vicious slashes and a body hitting the ground in a sick thud.

Back aboard the ship the girl sighed a bit.

"I wish we could know more about what's happening at the border." she looked annoyed, but as she started to pace another girl gave an audible huff

"Uh huh, so instead of going to the border and just fighting, we are on a boat heading towards Japan. Brilliant. Really." the girl said with an eye roll as the first girl glared.
"Because, we are trying to spy, not start a war." and with that began pacing around more as the old man on the boat looked at them both.

"Both of you calm down. We are arriving in Edo in the morning. For now you two should both sleep. We have our mission in Japan and I'd rather have good news to report back to the Emperor." with that the man moved upstairs to the deck of the ship. The large ship's four red sails looked brilliant in the moon light as in the distance a large island was finally visible. The boat was moving towards the province of Chugoku, soon making a large turn around the far side of the island and going back North towards Edo.

The man pulled out a long pipe and took a slow drag of it before looking up at the moon. A quiet wind blew across the water, moving his coat a bit and lightly chilling his flesh. It had been a long time since he had visited Japan, and now here he was with a group of students on a diplomatic mission. It was strange to think about, and even more strange since his counterpart, Headmaster Hosokawa of Edo Bugei, had been so young the last time the two had met. As though summoning the devil Sun Yi's phone began to ring.
"Hello?" the Chinese Headmaster answered.
"I just wanted to make sure you are alright." Headmaster Hosokawa responded. He had a genuine sound of concern in his voice for the elderly Headmaster.
"I'm doing alright. Though my students are getting restless. Sleeping is a bit hard with them running around making plans without me." with that both men gave a brief chuckle.
"Well, we will meet you at Edo Bay in the morning. Did you bring the stuff?" in spite of both men's age Headmaster Hosokawa's voice sounded like an excited teenager for a moment as Sun Yi let out a warm hearted chuckle.
"Two bottles of Wudong Baijiu. I hope you will appreciate how much they cost." Sun Yi said, tapping his foot audibly, hoping the sound would resonate to his counterpart on the other side of the phone.

In his estate in Edo, far away from the school building, Headmaster Hosokawa gave a large grin as he looked towards a now empty space on his kitchen counter. Walking over to make sure it would be enough room for the two large urns he gave an even wider grin.
"Enough to cover room and board for six students and one wiley old man for a few months." and with that they both gave another laugh. Wiping a tear away from his eyes the Headmaster looked at the clock.
"I think its best both of us at least bluff about sleeping this evening. I'll see you in the morning, Huang." he said in a compassionate tone. Back aboard the ship the old man nodded.
"You as well, Moriatsu. I'm glad you are alright, truly, I am." with that both men put their phones away, one proceeding to a large bed chamber and the other heading back below the decks of the Imperial vessel to calm down six rather excitable kids.

In the distance, a large, wooden ship with beautiful red sails approaches Edo!

The evening of February 1st the newest arc of Sengoku Horizon, Arc 2, will begin! This "foreign arc" will span 2018 and introduce various countries and their scions as they visit Japan to get a sense of the state of the country after the two year long struggle with the Ikko Ikki.

The first part of the Arc will be the arrival of the red sailed ship carrying a group of Scions from China! They will arrive at Edo's bay and while they are visiting Edo we will have a large dance (schedule for March) and a combat tournament! (Likely may or june).

While the Chinese delegation is visiting Edo you will also be able to RP with them as NPCs! You will also be able to visit their dorms! Please look forward to it!


On a staff note, we would like you all to know we are re-organizing stuff on our end. We have been busy and in light of this we will not only be adding a new staff member soon but will also be allowing active members to create and lead classes/missions for credits!

We are going to try and divy out stuff on the site more and give players more freedom. Not only allowing you all to better pursue your own plots but hopefully also increasing interest in roleplaying on Sengoku Horizon.

As a site we have been open two years so far, with the start of the new story arc lets make sure we make it to three years!
