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!

The teacher and his four companions smiled as the girls seemed to look over one another and make sure they had, in fact, made it out alive. It was refreshing to see students care about one another after being in such a strange event. Though one of the girls, Eriko, was rather quick to fire a question towards the quintet.
"That was certainly an experience I won't forget. But sensei, if you don't mind my asking... how was it even possible to make us able to do those things?" The artillery teacher looked at the four students behind him, then back at Eriko, and gave a slight shrug.

"I'm sorry, but that isn't up to me to explain. Not to be rude or keep you in the dark. Rules are rules, and scions can choose to explain their powers or not." his answer was blunt, but he wouldn't be the first or last teacher to answer in such a way. Most of the time Scions did keep their powers at least somewhat secret.
"Blame the clans. Future and current clan lords don't want everyone else knowing what their retainers can and can't do." and with that he rolled his eyes a bit. He clearly wasn't impressed with the status quo in that regard. However, it was also his job as a teacher to maintain it and follow certain rules. Though as he sighed a bit one of the four behind him stepped forward. The girl had short black hair and dead looking eyes. In a way she looked a lot like Tagami Yumiko but thinner and a bit shorter.
"My name is Kosaka. I'm a first year. Ummmm, I'm really good with paper shaping!" she said with a smile that clearly didn't match her outfit. Then remembering herself she opened her mouth wide and let out a few zombie noises.
"Brains.......and shikigami....AND BRAINS...." she said, clearly fooling no one. Even the other three looked at her like she was crazy as the artillery teacher shook his head a bit.

"You three should get going though. The evening is getting late." then he looked at the four behind him and back at the students.
"Also, how about I escort you kids to the dorms. All seven of you have had a long night, in different ways." he offered politely. He was a teacher that constantly looked either bored or annoyed, but he wasn't heartless, and did care for the students that occupied the school.

Her eyes shifted awayas they were all addressed by the teacher and students. Something about the confidentiality of Scion abilities and then there is the girl who spoke up about shikigami and brains. Shikigami are spirits and usually in the form of paper dolls. Their skills seem elaborate to duplicate items down to their very weights. Mika pondered about this more than the state of the people around her. The evening happened, some charm bracelet was given in thanks that was largely unwanted.

The moment the teacher advised to leave while also suggesting some escort to provide, Mika placed her hands inside her kimono and dropping the bracelet into the holding area in her sleeves. “I’ll accept your escort,” she spoke with her regard of the two others near here going from appreciating their presence to zero. It was clear the night wasn’t in their favor that she regretted to have taken more of her time ti properly inspect all the rooms. If not for the required muscle then the other two were largely unnecessary in her mind.

She walked forward to join them without once making direct eye contact with Makoto nor Eriko.

Well, before they went, it seemed as though Eriko wanted to know the secret behind all the things that they had done during this Halloween experience. The artillery teacher, of course, said that it really wasn't up to him, since it was down to the Scions themselves to discuss or NOT discuss how their powers work. One of the first-years, though, obliged them with an answer, of sorts. Shikigami...and BRAINS!

"Braaainsss..."

Makoto couldn't help but reply to that with a smile. Even though that wasn't much of an answer, it WAS an actual answer. Re-read your Japanese folklore about spells annd such. In some cases, you have your sutras planted by priests, and you have your paper-made servants who are given life through the power granted by their master. That actually DID explain some things. With that said and done, it was time to go and the teacher was offering them some escort back to the dorms.

"Okay, sure. Speaking of Scion powers, though, I have a very combustive Relic. D'you think I could use something that goes 'Boom' with that?"

Uh oh. Was she asking the artilllery teacher for gunpowder?

No full explanation for what she'd experienced wasn't very satisfying, and it showed in Eriko's expression. For a few moments she was frowning and scouring her mind for potential explanations for what'd happened. Relics could be unfathomably powerful she supposed, but to bend reality like had seemed to happen to her was a bit beyond that. Not having one herself she wasn't really sure what the upper limits on their abilities might be. Possible for them to have caused all of her ghostly capabilities and limitations? Indeed. But not knowing was all the more frustrating. The girl named Kosaka seemed nice though, even if her zombie acting left much to be desired.

"Keep it up and you'll be the finest undead at the ball, Kosaka-chan," she remarked with her first smile in a while. After that she looked to the other girls and let out a sigh of relief again. Their ordeal was over for now, and it had all been without anyone being hurt or even a legitimate danger being posed to anyone.

"Okay, while I'm not totally satisfied not knowing.. it was a good show. So I suppose congratulations are in order for putting on a good performance," she remarked.. then let out a big yawn. This had been a longer night than she'd realized! "If it's okay with you all, I'd be happy to walk back together. Weird experience or not, it'd be nice to learn a little more about the people behind it all."

NPC POST

(Second to last round of posting)

As the students all gathered up to go the artillery teacher looked carefully at Makoto who had apparently just asked for combustibles. With a bit of a long side eye the teacher gave Makoto a serious look.
"I'm not sure you need such things this evening. However, students are always free to come and ask after the holidays." he explained carefully. He certainly wasn't again letting Makoto have some of his gun powder stores, but, it certainly wouldn't be tonight. Not when it was already late and the teacher didn't wish to wake up the entire, likely dead tired, student body thinking the Ikko had come back for another round.

With that the four young students smiled and followed their senpais towards the dorms. The four talked and whispered and giggled. It was like the people who had been seen in the building earlier didn't really exist. All four students seemed to have acted very well in their roles as they laughed and talked about how one another looked in their makeup and how creepy they had managed to act. Outside of the creepy events in the school building they certainly seemed quite cute.

"Thank you for the escort Senpais!" one of them said cheerfully as another nodded and waved at the three students ahead of them. The cold air moved through the group, but it certainly wouldn't be as creepy as things had been inside the now black and quiet school building.

Mika kept quiet without much interest in asking about how their relics worked. If one took into account of all the strange things that happened then it is possible that the relic ability made them felt real. The warping of the school floors, that curse that bound Glasses-san, and whatever made that other girl into a specter. That zombie type with the paper skills was the most interesting to her in how weight was even included in the illusion. That sort of creativity had her wonder if the person could make people, or clones for that matter, than objects of shapes and sizes.

But on that note, while observing how the four chatted with themselves, Mika continued to avoid eye contact with the other two whom she shared this experience with. That brief comrade of solving the solution only came about once Glasses-san realized that they were angry at the wrong person. Once the wonder and that strange game was over, Mika too felt that the comrade part of the game was over. She slowly tilted her hand so the palm faced upward were some dried blood and the cut began to feel slightly irritable. Blamed for a paper cut. Hope unamusing. The girl's mind brewed darkly before sliding her hand back into her kimono during the escort to the dorms. Once that four departed for their rooms, Mika bowed directly to the teacher, and only the teacher, before turning away to get some sleep. As for this charm bracelet, who knows, maybe she'll read up on how to put a real curse on it and give it to her brother.
