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!

He flitted back into the story for the moment, and was bade by the villager to follow him on horseback. This constituted the end of the journey by book. Soon, the false reality was replaced by the real reality, and he could see the library again. The library, the headmaster, and the two other students that he'd come with. The elder man wished to know what he thought of his tale.

"Very relaxing."

Only because of the nature of the beast. If he'd chosen a less tame tale...there would've been trouble. But as Suishoku said, they made it. Hard to say how something like that might progress. Now, it seemed like their time was done here. The elevator dinged and all.

"Is that our cue to go and save something for the next students? What else is gonna happen here?"

Fair question, though he wasn't sure if an answer was forthcoming.

Yuuki, Suishoku, and Roshi all appeared in their normal clothing, seeming alright now as they appeared to check over one another to make sure they had truly come back alive.
"Is that our cue to go and save something for the next students? What else is gonna happen here?" Roshi asked. The Headmaster smiled with a wide grin.

"Hmmm. I wonder indeed. The night is, by all accounts, still young. What can happen to the next group I'm afraid I really couldn't say. I believe they may find their evening entertainment in other parts of our library. For now, however, you three have certainly done well and survived the night." he said as he made a sweeping motion to the elevator with his arm.

"Oh, before you three go." and then he pulled out three brown covered books. In golden kanji they would say "Kwaidan" on the spine.
"Please, as a souvenir for your evening." he said, insisting each student take one.

"You all did quite well, and have now lived through at least one tale of Kwaidan. I strongly encourage you to read the others before bed tonight." he said with a clearly rehearsed evil laugh as the edges of the basement started seeming darker and darker, while in contrast the light from the now open elevator started seeming brighter and brighter. It was more than just a hint or a clue, it was a clear omen that they needed to leave the basement at once. All the while the Headmaster simply kept staring at them.

So, it seemed that maybe there would be others drawn down here, maybe not. It was at a random account, perhaps. It was strange, but this spooky night was more enjoyable than freaky, but some tales - be they in real life or fiction - are like that, sometimes. You can never really tell if it's going to be shock and horror or awe and mystery. That was the appeal of the scary night.

Speaking of which, the headmaster had a gift for them all, and Zombie!Roshi's expression lit up as he saw that it was a copy of the Kwaidan. The artist made an appreciative "Brains!" in response, taking one of the books. Evil laughter or no, good gift! And with that, the elevator was open and uhh...time to go now! Roshi became a running zombie for that!

"Thank you," Suishoku said simply just the word straight out. If she spoke it any slower then it would have been more clearer that it made her a bit uneasy to accept a ghost story book. Browsing around a book about youkai for fun was something but after having that odd adventure to obtaining essentially a free copy of the book; Suishoku couldn't tell if this was a joke to laugh from or cry by its one sided humor. But reading about how the goblin story ended was something she'd willingly read about for the sake of seeing how that strange little brother was and whoever elder brother Nathaniel was as well.

She tucked the book under an arm and nodded a bit to their headmaster. It sounded like they were being relieved and that they finished their main trial of the night. Yay? The girl would have looked a bit more happy about it if not for how dark the library had become. Now it was as though the creeping darkness was returning like how it was in the forest.

"Again, thank you for tonight," she said a bit curtly as she about literally dragged Yuuki with her almost a split second reaction to Roshi's steps beating for the elevator before something else wants to pop up and stare at them. "Good night!"

(OOC: LAST ROUND OF POSTING!)

As the three walked off towards the library elevator the Headmaster kept smiling. In his heart he was quite content with how things had turned out. As the elevator closed, taking the students upstairs, the Headmaster let out a long held yawn and waved his hand a bit as three third years came out from behind the bookshelves.
"Well done all." he said as the three third years smiled and laughed a bit.

Meanwhile the elevator opened back at the main floor of the library. The entire library was empty and the student's job was done. They had the books in hand and could now safely say that their next destination should probably be their dorm rooms given both how cold and how late it now was. When the student's looked at their cellphone clocks they would realize that they had been in the Headmaster's illusion considerably longer than they could have expected.

Al that was left now was to say goodbye to one another.

It was indeed, quite a shock to discover that so much time had passed from when this Halloween journey began and when it ended. Once they were up on the main floor again, it would be time to part ways.

"Well, as cold as it was, I liked this year's Halloween. I got to be a zombie and a lord on the same night. I wonder if Nobu has it that easy..."

The lord part, not the zombie part. Speaking of which, though...

"I'm gonna have to take a massive shower to clean this all off. Definitely worth it for the effect, but a real pain to apply and remove."

He had his book tucked under one arm after putting on his coat now.

"It's been a great night. Suishoku, it's always a pleasure. Please don't get mad because I was pampered by a nice girl in my tale."

Because, illusion or not, it felt real enough, and any one of them could look up which tale was which in the Kawaiden. Best ye make sure another party wouldn't feel put out.

"Glad you did...I don't really remember what last year's Halloween was." But not many would have. An attempt to write a story for halloween may have floated around the student message boards but it never really got anywhere after a few entries. Not a huge surprise really since scary stories were usually as scary stories usually took place during the summer than the fall time. The other reason was how much last summer was just horrible in generally to even consider it. Roshi must have had a better time somehow but what in the world was he talking about?

"No idea really...and what do you mean by lord?" Suishoku looked at zombie Roshi with a confused side eye after dragging Yuuki along with them to the elevator. Nothing creepy followed them to it, thankfully, which made their exit out of the basement of the library and the library itself a much needed sigh of relief. Gladly she hugged her scarf and tried to pretend the book in her hand wasn't some weird spell book but a normal simple book.

She chuckled a little though as they walked in their little group to the library entrance. The level of make-up Roshi had to put on was insane so it was more of a sympathetic shrug to him that he'd have to wash it all off. "Could hit up the dorm baths before you go unless you want to ride through the city with it on." Knowing Roshi, he'd make a descent undead biker.

Finally they made it to the door. The large library door opened with a creaking groan with the cold night air greeting them once more. She shivered and wrapped herself tighter with her scarf. "I guess," she grumbled to her friend in how 'great' this night as been. An upside to it would be that she didn't run around screaming her head off if there were floating bodies everywhere....or faint. "Just glad it really stayed...harmless. And what do you mean pampered by a nice girl!?" Suishoku looked at him again shocked but not for the jealous girly type of reasons as he headed out the door first. Her face puckered indignantly as she waved her scarf trails after him as though to whip him with it and, if rolled up taunt, she very well could have fashioned a rather weak one out of it.

"I'm more jealous that you got a safe story than bargaining with a goblin!"

Although, what would have happened if Suishoku did choose the option to assassinate the Goblin King, that'd be something unfortunate to cause an accidental murder.

With Suishoku's shock at Roshi's recanting of his tale. Yuuki laughed a bit and wished them good night. All three had gone through a tale of the Kwaidan and come out the other side in top form. They now even had very nicely bound copies of the famous book for themselves. All in all the night could be considered a success as from atop the library two ninja scions looked at the three and smiled at one another. Both masters of illusion magic they quickly faded into the night, along with the tales the famous Kwaidan tome possessed within.
