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, 06/01/2018 The Chinese delegation have now arrived at the city of Edo. Making friends and learning about Edo Culture is their current aim! In other news it is also time for the school dance event! Please bring your characters along!

            What section are you changing: Activated Ability 1
            What you want it to say: For increased mobility and support in spread fights, I was thinking about adding to her ability slightly. I'll highlight the change in text I had in mind.

            "ACTIVATED ABILITY 1: Force Palm (maybe change to Force Blast?)
            Viola extends her hand out forcefully, causing a concussive blow to be released from her palm. The blow knocks opponents back up to 3 meters. She must make direct contact and be effectively pushing the opponent or object away for the knockback to occur. She may also kick off of the ground or a sturdy object to propel herself in a linear direction up to 3 meters. This kick cannot be used on opponents like with her hands, and can only be used as a small burst to avoid objects and close gaps between her and her objective. (One turn cooldown.)"

            Was that door honestly a bathroom? I know I didn't see shower rooms going down the hallway like in a university... Oh, forget about it, I'll look at it when I get back.

            Viola descended the stairs leading to the lounge area she had passed by earlier on her way up to unload her belongings. Mika had pointed out a few minutes ago that this area had a cafeteria in it that would still be open to serve evening partakers like herself. What she didn't explain and what Viola ignored herself earlier while passing though, besides the size of the area, was all of the available activities for students. The variety was unbelievable to her; you could work out, lounge out, pig out, or even swim. The choice was yours. For Viola, at least for now, she decided she wanted to eat as her stomach reigned her in from her amazement to remind her that it was still there and needed food to negate the hunger from not eating for several hours.

            She approached the cafeteria and was impressed with the space and selection. At this hour, due to the number of people whom had come before her, the choices were a bit smaller than what she had assumed should be there, but regardless, was able to get a decent meal to satisfy her until morning. The staff working the back area helped Viola with locating what she needed and made sure she was satisfied with what she had.

            She departed the cafeteria with a smile and thanked the workers for their assistance and sat in the heart of the lounge to start eating her long awaited meal. The televisions in this area were all news stations typical of most sports bars and sit down restaurants; silenced with the subtitles on for interested parties to understand what was going on. Most of the conversations going on were experts talking about the stability of the Shogunate with varying opinions based on which station you frequented. One or two were tuned into weather channels, but again, nothing interesting, just a forecast of rain in the future. Typical, as Viola would be starting Guard duty soon and needed to prepare if rain were a constant problem.

            After seeing the forecast, she brought her attention back to her food as she began eating. For a bit, her mind cleared and she drowned out the rest of the world to focus on what was in front of her. For the first time since she arrived on campus, she was at peace, and knew everything would be alright. It would be a lot better, however, on a satisfied stomach.

            If a disruption in your typical style of living occurs, what better way to feel like you're home than continue your style in your new environment, right?

            Viola's short time in Edo has allowed her to develop a routine following very closely to her own at home. Her mornings start with preparing for school, a short time for prayers and meditation to prepare her mind, and a small breakfast. Classes were somewhat boring. No surprise there. Even back at home, they weren't interesting at all. She could pay attention to every word the instructor says, but just sitting there and listening seemed like a horrible way to interact with teenagers. She stayed, though, and kept her eyes trained on her sensei to try and retain the information.

            After school, she took a small trip to the Shinagawa Ward to perform some training similar to what her mother would have her do. She would run as far as she could to increase her endurance. The track team she was in at her old school, as well as Edo now, gave her what she needed for speed, so it wasn't necessary for any outside training she did. With her school uniform on and tonfa in her hands, she tried as hard as she could to simulate any missions she might take part of to make the act of moving with both easier to her. When the time came for her upcoming mission, she wanted to be ready, and not a disgrace. She put in her earbuds, instructed her phone via touch to start playing her music of choice, and took off.

            The roads she ran along all were within close proximity of the ocean. The path she initially chose when she started these runs were done to keep close memories to home, to remind her that she was here to honor her family, to make them proud, and to test herself. With that motivation, she would chase that goal. Viola has the weight of her future job and her own dreams weighing on her. She feels like running and continuing her training will get her one step closer to that goal. It also gives her a bit of time to escape those responsibilities before they set back in and she goes back to Edo, to continue her guard duties and return to her room, where she realizes that it's all real... She is chasing her dreams, but not exactly how she had planned.

            Her runs usually ended close to the bus stop to prepare for the trip home, but this time, something told her she needed to slow down a bit and enjoy the view. Viola had already taken time to take the sight of the ocean and scenery in, but today, it seemed a bit more serene and homely. She stopped and observed from a small hill overlooking the beach. The sight of it reminded her of the many trips her family took and of their luck being able to see this as often as they wanted. She began to count her blessings that this school was surrounded by such diverse areas and really gave many people opportunities to enjoy their natural scenery with little hassle.

            Viola took a seat on the hill and decided to update her plans slightly. She took her phone and looked at the bus schedule to see the next bus headed for Edo Bugei took off in about an hour. This gave her enough time to engage in some image training before needing to leave and gave time to take in the sights offered. She also contemplated grabbing a snack across the road at the general store, but decided against this in leu of time to continue her training.

            She crossed her legs, put her hands clasped together in her lap, and closed her eyes. Almost immediately, her mother appeared before her and the match began.

            To those outside looking in, she seems to be slumped over slightly, appearing to possibly be asleep. Her tonfa are laying at her sides, and phone is in her front shirt pocket with the music off, and earbuds out of her ears. She is wearing her Edo uniform, so those who see her know she is a student at the school.

            Kunishi, Viola: Week 2 Report

            Day 1: Second week of my rounds starts off with a good time on my path. I've started to become acquainted with other students here and it seems like I'm not some sort of outcast like I initially thought I'd be. The other members on guard duty seem to enjoy the fact that I signed up for it and think I'll end up being a great help since I managed to stay with it. Guess that means I'm either in for a rude awakening soon, or people just can't manage to do mundane tasks without action, so they quit. Either way, I need the spare money to go out and enjoy my time here. Was thinking about checking out one of the bordering areas of the city soon... I heard there was a nice beach area and a pretty quiet area around somewhere... beach to the north and quiet area south? Hope I don't botch this up. Shift ended without incident.

            Day 2: Shift started with no major problems, and maintained time on my routes. Rumors are spreading among the group that the people who arrived from the west have settled in and we're planning some stuff soon to celebrate their arrival... something like a dance and a tournament. Seems a bit contradictory to me that you have a dance with them, then try to beat them into submission the following week, but that could be what those kids are into. But in retrospect, the dance seems like a great opportunity to wear my kimono again and really get involved with some of the people here. That makes me excited! The tournament, I could get involved in to see where I stand with the world. I have been practicing more and trying to figure more out about these powers and understanding ways to make efficient use of them. Seems like this relic has some incredible depth to it, but I can't really reach too far down yet. Maybe with more practice, I can get there eventually. No incidents occurred tonight as of shift change.

            Day 3: Shift begins with rain. Wonderful. Nobody wants rain to happen, especially when you have to be in it, even if I'm completely covered now. Routes were a bit slow due to the boots I'm wearing now, but there weren't any issues that came about because of it. Speaking of that, I did finally get boots, so my shoes can have a break and I don't have to wash them every time I run in the rain now. That in itself will cut down on the biggest hassle of this job... well, besides dealing with intruders, but that's only situational. No incidents occurred as of shift change.

            Day 4: Things dried up today, so routes were taken at normal pace. I was talking with my peers and my replacement tonight and was told that apparently a pretty huge invasion happened a few years ago. The Ikko made a pretty large attack against Edo and had to be repelled. They ended up making these positions to ensure if one happened again that things might turn out a little better... I just hope it doesn't happen again. I've been keeping a more alert eye on things since hearing that. I want to be sure that this home I just moved into just over a week ago doesn't fall to some anti-government group. Guess I could just shove them off the property if it came right down to it. Doesn't take much to put a palm to their gut and shove... at least I hope. Nothing to report as of shift change.

            Day 5: Shift started as normal and routes taken were a bit faster pace than usual. I got a pleasant surprise when my mom called me during my rounds. I unfortunately had to tell her I was working, which she was ecstatic about. Following that, she reprimanded my dad about me finding work while all he wanted to do was grow his vegetables. We all had a quick laugh about it before she told me they both missed me and wished me the best of luck. I thanked them and returned the sympathies before I got off the phone with them. I'll call them back after I'm done, but it is really nice to know I'm being thought of when I'm not around. I guess it's easy to do, though, since I'm a third of the household. I bet they're at least enjoying the fact that the food isn't disappearing so fast... being in track and helping myself to food to regain energy after a run is no joke. I guess I'm helping them in that sense, at least. Though I've adapted myself to things so far, home is still a wonderful thought to me. I wonder how my friends are doing? Perhaps I should starting using that messenger app they were using before I left... I think Snapchat? I'll see about it later. Nothing to report as of shift change.

            Day 6: I came into my shift at the end of an attempted raid by a single Ikko member. Apparently, they were trying to sneak in to the headmaster's office and dig up secret information. The one I relieved had just returned from dealing with the invasion and made clear that I should watch for more activity as it was a bit unusual for them to act individually and if one failed, more would come soon. The entire route, I was on an insanely high alert and could not keep from imagining the scenarios in my head of what to expect... would it be a kid? Or maybe an adult? Fat? Skinny? Ugly? Super handsome... nah, I doubt someone involved in treason would be a good looking guy. Or would they? What a conundrum. As I was entertaining these thoughts, I heard leaves rattling in a nearby bush and nearly jumped out of my skin. I tensed up once I composed myself and waited for the worst only to see a cat come out of the bush. Immediately after that, my relief came from behind and put his hand on my shoulder. I instinctively gripped my tonfa and swung my left arm as I pivoted my ankle, turning my body toward the touch and keeping my elbow bent to release a full force blow once I could see my target. As he came into view, I began to relax and try to stop, but it was too late. He managed to dodge the swing, just barely grazing his hair. He let out a panicked, "Calm down, it's only me!" as he stood to look me in the eye. Of course, I apologized profusely and explained why I was so tensed up. He only laughed and told me the so called Ikko raider earlier was only a sympathizer, not an actual member. He had confessed everything once he was taken in for questioning and taken to the local jail. Relief came over me and I put my tonfa away and thanked him for clearing the situation up. I was then relieved of duty for the night after a bit more small talk. No other incidents occurred.

            Day 7: A bit of wind picked up today just before my shift. There's a storm coming in off the ocean they say may bring quite a bit of rain and some intense storms with it... great, as if rain wasn't bad enough. The route tonight was normal beyond a couple stray animals looking for shelter. Can't say I blame them, if I was them and could sense the malice in the air from the storm, I'd be running, too. The way I understand, if conditions are too extreme for safety outside, say if there is lightning occurring frequently or strong winds are blowing, like a hurricane, then the guard staff are told to keep watch indoors in certain areas specified to them at a briefing. If the situation becomes dire and the school is in danger, we become the alarm system. An automated system will alert students to the situation, but we are the ones responsible for keeping them under control. Of course, my role may be diminished due to me being a first year at the school, but regardless, I'd like to do what I can. I doubt this storm will become that rough, but then again, we could all be surprised. Beyond being nearly hit by a trashcan on my route that I had to catch and secure, nothing out of the ordinary occurred during the shift.
