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!

Nobuyumi

Sweat dripped from her brow as she stabbed out. Her breathing was a bit labored. Pain raced up her shoulder, and she winced. She stopped and steadied herself. It was a bit late, which was perfect in this case. Normally she didn't mind practicing or training around others. But after the attack on the Shogunate...she couldn't bring herself to let others see what had happened to her. It wasn't like it was shameful or anything. But she was still a woman, and still had a lot of pride in her appearance. Now...she felt almost like a leper.

The doctors did an amazing job. She never doubted that, nor was she mad at them. The fact that her skin was merely discolored, instead of a throbbing nasty looking scar was testament to their skill. Still, it was enough for people to instantly notice. She bit her lip as she moved over and sat down on one of the benches. She had taken to practicing when no one was in for that reason. She didn't want people to be put off by such a thing. It covered the top of her left should and a bit of the front and back of it. It then traveled up her neck, and onto her face.

Thankfully the hair hadn't been completely damaged and it was growing back. Small mercies really. But then, she had expected to lose the eye and even the ear in her, rather stupid, attack. The fact that her left eye was a slightly lighter color due to the damage was fine. It hadn't been damaged in any real way, well in any way that impaired her vision. It seemed like she merely got off with discoloration. The real problem was that for now, she was still in a bit of constant pain. Which she thought some training would help get over it.

So here she was, in one of the practice gyms. Hair pulled back, to keep it out of the way. She was bare foot, wearing some plain cargo pants, and a tight fitting sleeveless shirt with no mid-rif. She had a wooden replica of her weapon, something she had had made by an artisan. She needed to be as close to her actual weapon. She took a drink of the bottle of water and damped the towel across her before stepping back on the mat for another hour of working out.

Nobuyori was already tired. For some reason he felt as though he had not only woken up on the wrong side of the bed this morning but had then stayed on that wrong side all day. Dressed in blue cargo shorts with golden Azai clan seals on the pockets and a light blue t-shirt he came to the gym with a wooden naginata in hand to work out. His body moved as though he was tired, but in truth he had come to work out in hopes of waking himself up. One could consider this the price paid for staying up all night trying to get a particular new machine gun in one of his online robot video games.

Stepping onto a mat after taking off his sandals he felt the cold rubber of the mat against the bottoms of his feet. With his left foot back and right forward he held his naginata in a defensive position before lunging forward with it, then rotating his body around to slash from the side. Putting his weapon back in a defense stance he backed up a bit and let out a yawn. The young prince's blond hair in a surprisingly organized state despite his voice. After all, he wanted to at least look good while doing combat practice, even if he wasn't really feeling it today. Yawning a bit more he would then practice a few more slashes before looking back around.

The gym was full of students had been injured over the past year, either from the earthquake or from guarding the shogun. Looking down at his own arm it made him thankful his own earthquake related wound had now fully healed.

Yuriko sucked down the water a bit, as she heard someone come in. It was odd for anyone to be in this late. Maybe they weren't sleeping well, or some other thing. She turned and looked at the person. It was hard NOT to know who they were. Nobuyuri, the Azai boy. She gave a bit of a grimace at that. She didn't have anything particularly against the boy, just that they were both so similar in a way. Both families boasted strength in their seafaring expertise, and both Nobuyui and Yuriko were polearm users. She almost wanted to slink a way. She patted herself down with the towel, mostly covering her left side again.

She watched for a little while, as the very few others who were here began to clean up and leave. It was just her and him now in here. She sighed. She wanted to work herself till she collapsed. But now, she'd have to do it with him watching. Another hour of working out, or go to the dorms and lie in pain for awhile? It really wasn't much of a decision there, she'd have to work it out. She hated the rehab the doctors were using, it didn't feel right. Felt like they were treating her like a cripple. She wasn't crippled...she thought.

So, Yuriko moved her body off the bench. She stepped back onto the mat and got into her stance. She began to move through her cadences.

As Nobuyori spun and duck he began to practice a bit more advanced form of naginata combat. One that focused even more on rotation of the body and using hip movements in order to get as much lethal force out of a slash as possible. It was more in line with a man holding a katana than it was a guard holding a naginata or spear. The look in his eyes was determined. He wasn't cutting class, or fooling around with a video game. Today he was here to stop himself from being so weak.

The time passed with more practice as the people who had filled up the gym gradually left. This would make himself, and another girl near by, the only two people left. She seemed to use a spear, and looked just as determined as he felt, if not more so. As Nobuyori went through a few slice and stab combinations slowly he watched the girl begin to do her cadences. He didn't want to disturb her so as he finished the final stab in a combination of attacks he had been practicing he quickly pulled his naginata back and turned to the girl.

"Impressive spear work." he said, a few drops of sweat falling from his forehead. Of course he would make sure to say this between her own combinations. He wasn't looking to disturb her. Once he had said it he then tried a few more shallow slices, his body a bit tired.
