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, 3/8/2017Spring has come. The war with the Ikko Ikki monks has begun! The Bugei students set off to various areas of Japan in the first war the country has seen in nearly 200 years! What will happen as monks and samurai clash? FIND OUT!

It was a black room. But it wasn't a room as there was no floor, ceiling or walls. There was light but no source. And then there was Nao. Standing alone. 'Hello?' He called out, his voice echoing into the nothing.

Yes? A voice responded, with no tone, or sound, enough to send shivers down Nao's spine.

'Where am I?' He asked, looking around for the source of the voiceless voice, but there was no culprit.

You aren't anywhere.

'But what does that mean?' Nao retorted, quickly.

You are No Where. You are not dead. You are not alive. You are... somewhere in between.

'So... I'm not alive. Am I dying?' Nao asked the voice, worry creeping.

Do you want to be?

'I do not.'

Then dying you are not. At least, not yet.

'Am I going to die..?'

Eventually. Everyone does.

'Fantastic... So, who are you?'

I am nothing. Though, what that means to each person is something different.

'What am I supposed to do?'

Do whatever it is you wish. That is, after all, all you ever seem to do. You sleep when you are tired, ignore work when you don't want to do it, and kill a man when you feel it necessary.

Nao paused then, feeling insulted by the truth of those voiceless words as he continued looking around into the void around him. 'I wish... I wish to stop it all. I don't want to fight, but I don't want anyone else fighting either.' There was a long pause afterwards, where the other speaker didn't answer for the longest time.

Then all you need to do is open your eyes.


A gasp as the unconscious scion awoke, and sat straight up, cold sweat covering his body. The immediate movement was an immediate regret as pain overwhelmed his face and made him lay back down. He didn't know where he was, or how long he had been unconscious... he waited for his vision to clear to see where he was.

Music is here!

The fight was over. As Suishoku rushed out of the south gate she would see a disgusting sea of blood and gore. In the distance a few shinobi on horseback flying Uesugi and Naoe clan banners rapidly approached towards the eastern gate. Inside the team was broken. Yuna had walked back to the city badly burnt. Mirai was still breathing hard. Nobuyori was on his back with his eyes closed, attempting to forget about what he had just seen. Nao was barely conscious, his badly damaged weapon carried back into the city by six samurai. Meanwhile the sounds from the Eastern side of the city began to die down and no more explosions went off.

General Naoe was passed at as some of his men sat around him slowly taking off their thick armor. Though even as they took the armor off they kept sword and spear close in case another group of Ikko should suddenly show up. With the battle over the green armored Maeda elite samurai started lowering the large guns they had brought and took off the thick helmets that adorned the heavy armor. Suishoku would recognize them as the men she had seen meeting with Lord Maeda. A man with purple armor and a golden Naoe emblem on his chest looked at the assembled group. First looking at the group guardian General Naoe. It was obvious he was the Naoe's second in command.
"Please carry General Naoe to the nearest emergency vehicle. I imagine it should arrive soon. Maeda soldiers guard the bugei students and villagers. Given the quick resolution to things in the East I'm going to go that way and speak with Lord Maeda." at the same time the students would get a series of texts reporting that no more Ikko troops seemed to be in the area and that all students should return to the Meada clan's castle. Though how many of the students would actually read the message who knows.

Either way multiple vehicles would soon arrive to help carry the Edo students back to the castle. Various doctors would look over every student as well as try their best to help Suishoku with what damaged samurai they could. Over all it would be about three hours before the students would be fully taken care of and taken inside the Maeda clan's castle. They students would be guided to the top of the castle. It was a small, four room area. Right now they stood in a hallway with three rooms around them. One to the left, one to the right, and one directly in front. Two of the elite Maeda clan samurai handing them formal robes spoke.
"We politely ask you change. We can't allow you to rest just yet. Our lord Maeda would like to speak with you. Please remove your bloodied outfits before entering the lord's meeting chambers. Men to the right and women to the left to change."

The doors re-opened for more survivors of the battle outside. A wave of death passing with them and all its scents of earth, smoke, and blood. It left a metallic taste in her mouth as she gripped her relic tightly and slammed a fist against the gate as people passed. Outside was nothing but pure carnage that she didn't even need her relic to sense that there would hardly be any life to be found out there, be it the enemy or one of their own. No one she could use to help the people of Kanazawa. It's sickening, Suishoku pressed her fist and relic against the gate while grinding her molars. Her tolerance was a bit steadfast of the sight, in no part thanks to a horrible mission set up in the past, but she couldn't stand there staring at it for too long.

Turning away, the gates closed once more as Suishoku leaped back into her duties of healing. Without any more gauze to close wounds, she resorted to taking a scalpel and started using her relic for what it was meant for. She summoned a pool in the small cup and went to work to where the critically wounded are, helping to cut and remove shrapnel bits and dabbing the flat of the knife upon the wound to seal it to get a head start on it before moving on like an assembly line to treat the more problematic ones before passing them off to another medic or send them loaded into an emergency vehicle. Her phone somehow buzzed but in the feverish work, she ignored it to check when there was more time to.

Multiple vehicles arrived causing many who were aware of their presence to raise their heads for what meaning they brought. Suishoku wiped some sweat with her uniform sleeve as even more doctors and relief aid came from them. A very welcomed sight which eased many of their strains. Her speed tactic sped things along by a little bit and got her making more rounds during those three hours. At one point, she went to service Yuna and Nao and started to work on them. Their battered bodies was telling of a far difficult battle had taken place. It made her feel guilty for taking a detour to return that maybe, they wouldn't have gotten the way they are now. Despite her work on them, neither Yuna or Nao would be leaving this place without some physical scars. The hours droned on in seemingly no end in sight after Suishoku passed Yuna and Nao to college student to check after their wounds if any started reopening in due part of their low supplies to spread out.

Toward the tail of of those seemingly endless three hours Suishoku would find Mirai and Nobu near each other. She had worked her way through the crowd to find them and could only give an empty tug of a smile to see that neither of them were harmed too greatly. A soiled Azai coat hung about Mirai which made it easy for her to guess what may have happened. Despite seeing the two she held more concerns about, Suishoku couldn't decide whether to apologize, thank, pray, cry, or hug them both. The mix of emotions left her standing wordlessly in gratitude that they're still alive with her at all yet, seeing that they were alive and well, her head lowered to a bow before walking away to return to her duties. Just because she found her friends to be alive, there was no stopping to savor the moment for long. Her feet dragged her off to tend to the wounded.

The three hours that ensued ended without ever knowing it had been that long. Her body kept wanting to work and get more people patched up despite the sweat running down her neck and knees staring to get sore from constant kneeling to standing and back to kneeling again. It would take some Maeda officials to round the students up to take them for a summons by Lord Maeda. It was an uncomfortable ride to share with her fellow students who took a more direct role in the front lines so Suishoku kept to herself but monitored them all the same if their health was okay. To be put generally about it, they were worn out mentally and physically.

They were brought to the castle, as hard as it was to argue, and led like cattle to a dressing room. She raised a brow at this but accepted that it would be nice of a change out of the clothes they currently wore now. Suishoku sighed, knowing the formality of this, but still had to slip her thoughts upon accepting the robes. "If we must." Did they honestly have time for this? But, well, anything to feel somewhat cleaner even if it is a change of clothes. Her arms carried the outfit presented to her, a green and purple set of formal clothing, and headed on first into the changing room with little argument. "I'll help if you need it to dress," she spoke to Yuna and Mirai. From the sounds of it, Suishoku started to think that maybe the worst has past.

It all happened so quickly. In the middle of the battlefield every second felt like months. It was hell with all of the explosions and ikko monks coming towards him but now that the battle was over the entire thing couldn't have lasted nearly as long as he felt it did. Nobuyori took as much time as he could just to relax and try to regain his strength before the battle was officially announced as a victory and the students would be summoned to the Maeda clan's castle. As he looked at the others it was clear that he wasn't the only one that had fought hard. Everyone looked tired and exhausted. As he was handed robes to change into he couldn't help but feel a bit disappointed. He had wanted to appear before the Maeda in a formal capacity, but not exhausted and with his clan coat covered in blood. His naginata was taken away by a Maeda clan smith, but he had at least grabbed his pack of ceremonial talismans, in other words his relic, from his jacket before that would be taken away from Mira for what Nobuyori could only assume was cleaning.

As the students got asked to go to separate rooms to change Nobuyori paused for a few minutes to look at Suishoku. She looked tired as well. Though she also looked alive, which is what mattered to him. She was safe, and so was her city. While they hadn't fought on the same battlefield they had fought to protect the same place and that was all that mattered. Walking off with Nao Nobuyori unfolded the robes given to him by the Maeda. It appeared to have a small, golden Azai crest on the back of it in spite of being the usual green and brown of the Maeda clan. It seemed the Maeda understood that they had a prince guarding their city and wanted to be as polite as hardened warriors could be. Stripping off his sweat covered clothing he felt terrible that he didn't have proper cologne or a longer shower to take before attending the clan's lord.

Being far too aware of Nao's fight Nobuyori would make sure his likely half dead companion was alright before returning back to the central room. Doing up his golden hair as best he could, he had on brown robes with beautiful green trim and a golden Azai crest on the back, though much smaller than he honestly would have preferred. He was ready for whatever may come next.
