Horiuchi Kesshite - Interlude and Downtime

Character Interlude and Downtime Roleplay

Mon unicorn

This page of the Adventure log is specifically dedicated to the character listed in its title. I will post a beginning story as an interlude or other downtime scenario and we will run the entire thing out through the Obsidian Portal. The affects of story that occur within this Adventure Log will be seen in the game primarily as shifting on the Favor Chart and benefits/penalties to certain aspects of the game.

In order to encourage interaction and self-promotion (meaning: you post something YOU want to have happen and “I” respond instead of the other way around) I will reward anyone who responds out of character to a post with 1 experience. Anyone that responds IN-CHARACTER will receive 3 experience. Note that I will only give this experience bonus after each major interaction; if you simply respond in small ways to the same thing five times you will only get the XP once. :)

Horiuchi Kesshite, the Beast

Note: I will try to write most of these “in character” or in a story format. I’m just trying to kick them off right now with C/F/S style commentary to get things moving.

Words from the Khan [11Feb 2013]

Horiuchi Kesshite,

The speed of Jikoju, Fortune of the East Wind, brings with it blessings, tidings and news of greater events in the Eastern Empire. It is with honor that I am gifted with information allowing me to send communication directly to you. Word of your exploits and new status within the ranks of the Imperial Magistrates is most fortunate indeed. In these troubled times, the Unicorn require as many contacts of status and ability as we can find.

Word of your spouse’s recent success against Matsu Naizen has reached us as well. The combination of these events have caused your reputation here among the People of the Plains to grow by leaps and bounds. The Ide family encourages such stories as the true kernels of legends to come. The Moto family, however, consider the situation in a different light.

Our Champion and Lord, the great Khan Chagatai, has asked that I send you this missive with all haste. He understands that your duty to the Emperor and whichever samurai is soon to command the position of Emerald Champion takes precedence over mere Clan concerns. However, the Khan considers your situation with the Matsu family and believes that you may be amenable to further requirements.

Should you find yourself in situations through the course of your Imperial duties that would allow for information regarding the Lion to be shared, the Khan asks that you merely pass on all rumor and gossip, particularly regarding the ranking families, the terrain of their lands, and the state of their military.

The Khan looks forward to your continued diligence and hopes to be able to honor you accolades of such status that rivals the Emperor’s blessing.
