L5R: Intrigue at Kyuden Suzume

Prologue: Suzume Sakura!
Character introduction

Suzume Yoguki, daimyo of the Sparrow Clan, is dead and where once the Sparrow Clan existed now resides another arm of the Spider Clan. The dark lord Daigotsu sheaths his katana and leans over to look at the shocked face of the dead samurai, “Don’t worry Yoguki, we will add your traditions to our own and you clan will live on as vassals of the Spider Clan, and become stronger than you had every imagined.” He moved his hand, as if to flick away the body with a mere gesture and the nearby attendants hurried over and removed Yoguki’s body from before the throne of the Sparrow Clan. Daigotsu gracefully moved over the blood on the ground and sat in the place of power, and looked as if he had always belonged there. “Before we continue with other business, there is the pressing matter of disposing of Yoguki’s legacy, Suzume Sakura, present yourself.”

Prologue: Ren and Togusa!
Character introduction

The sun sank into the western hills, shafts of light piercing through the foliage of the forest surrounding Kyuden Suzume, playing upon the white and grey clothing of the monks training there. Michio glared at his students, “If you cannot kill you opponent you are weak, if you cannot stop your opponent from killing you, you are weaker still!” The monks practiced in pairs, attacking and defending in the Order of the Spider’s unique and savage martial art. The monk sensei marched through the assembly, knocking unaware combatants to the ground, or striking under preforming students to remind them that disciple was key, disciple led to strength. Finally he approached Ren and Togusa, observing the two closely.

Prologue: Chuda Jin and Daigotsu Gozu
Character introduction

Chuda Jin and Daigotsu Gozu stood in the bowels of Kyuden Suzume, supervising the eta and lesser samurai as they hauled crates of weapons, armor, rations and jade into the tunnels deep within the earth, far away from the prying eyes of the world above. The tunnels were cool and there was little light as many of the tainted workers could see very well in the dark. The process was moving along without a hitch, which meant that the work was exceedingly dull for the two supervisors.
