At the Two Bucket at Kyuden Asako. Our mission was to settle down Isawa Kaho.
Shiba Nakano (general), Asako Kaiten (plays go every day). Shiba Hachi tries to tempt Asako Kagura into coming to Kyuden Asako for winter court. In the process, he finds out that Isawa Kaho seems to be of much more settled mind.
Lady Ayame believes that getting the maid Isawa Kurenai to get her into see Isawa Kaho. Isawa Kurenai usually goes out in the morning to get things for her lady from the market in the morning.
We make it to Tranquility by sunset and it’s bustling. A permanent theater is being constructed. Shiba Hatchi’s dad is talking to a statuesque scorpion woman in a form fitting kimono. Nearby is a wiry young man with a no-datchi with his daisho.
Shiba Tadashiro is helping build the theater in Tranquility. He says that there’s going to be a huge Bon festival in Smoking Waters with hundreds of monks chanting and fireworks and luminaries. He also says his patroness is Shosuro Tasuya.
Leave the next day. Get to Compassion around noon. Scorpion (Shosuro) are building a warehouse. Are given samples from Dr. Han’s House of Ten Thousand Remedies.
Shiba Hatchi spends a half koku.
Asako Fumiko spends FOUR koku.
He says he’s a master of exorcisms. Can drive off trickster spirits and can drive out hungry dead. We invite him to Smoking Waters. He also knows of the Bon festival.
As we get back towards the castle, a howling bulb arrow streaks towards us from behind, and six calvary are in front of us, and six archers to our south/left 50 yards away.
They yell “leave the Crane, and the rest of you may pass…”
Do we fight? Do we run?
And that’s where we stopped.
