In Tokyo there are three groups who still play the supernal game on a broken game board: the fading samurai, the homeless demons, and the occult gangsters. Our lot is thrown in with the latter. Contact their leader, Daimon Kiyota. I want to know your impressions of him. I don't like the way his entropy eats the equations. Introduce yourself to the other gangs as well. It helps to see from all the perspectives. And beware the voice haunting the air waves.

Masao Tanaka is an odd bird. Doesn't believe in the supernatural - is in charge of covering it up. I guess that makes him strangely qualified. He knows we're there to do our thing, that's what's important. There are three micro-factions in Tokyo. Our strongest connection is with the House-In-Exile, oni demons kicked out of one of the suburbs of Hell. Their leader is a disgusting pig, but we'll string him along for exactly the length of his usefulness. Then...snip-snip. Ciao-ciao.
Templars.png FROM: Temple Hall
To: <Character Name>
SUBJECT: Runaway Circus
There are three preternatural gangs that still hold sway in what is left of Tokyo. A loathsome band of wayward demons known as House-in-Exile, occult Yakuza gangsters who call themselves the Korinto-kai, and the Jingu Clan. The last is a modern sect of samurai and our closest spiritual siblings. Make contact with them. Their blades know the same thirst for demon blood. Find out if their leader, Gozen, is still alive. I should very much like to know.
