Tier 4/4


Dragon.png FROM: The Dragon
To: <Character Name>
SUBJECT: The Right of Way
We admire the Jingu. Museums are full of things to be admired. The Jingu were outdated in their own time. They are unbending, and will break in the gale wind. Now you must speak to the House-In-Exile. The Oni are the Jingu's opposite. They have no conviction, and become formless masses under pressure. Learn a lesson from each group that you meet. The Korinto-kai's lesson will be the most infuriating.
Illuminati.png FROM: The Labyrinth
To: <Character Name>
SUBJECT: The Right of Way
The Jingu and the Templars were made for each other. In fact, I've heard that Gozen and Sonnac once had a thing going. Oh, Dick, I didn't know you had it in you. Now those are some compromising pictures I'd like to have. Get to the House-in-Exile and use our contacts there to get the advantage on the Reds and Greens. We've been working the fine print on Faustian contracts longer than any of them. You ever see a demon sweat when looking at an Illuminati clause? Delicious.
Templars.png FROM: Temple Hall
To: <Character Name>
SUBJECT: The Right of Way
I am relieved that Gozen is alive and well. As a professional courtesy, of course. I find it comforting that an organization like the Jingu clan still thrives in this modern world. Virtue and zeal should never go out of style. Now comes the loathsome part. You must parlay with demons. These are hell-spawn no longer welcome in Hell. This does not make them our allies, but some battles take place in the course of polite conversation. Kill them with civility.

Akashi: Stop! Invited guests only!
Gozen: Who is it Akashi? Has someone else come?
Akashi: No! They are not Jingu Clan.
Akashi: They are outsiders. Not to be trusted.
Gozen: Unless they look like demons, Akashi, let them pass.
Gozen: Suspecting everyone will get us nowhere.
Akashi: Hmph. Not all demons have horns.

(Gozen speaks in English, Akashi in Japanese)

Gozen: You have the look, outsider,
Gozen: of one who has peeled back the skin of the world and seen the maggots feasting beneath it.
Gozen: You have...
Gozen: old eyes.
Gozen: We are the Jingu Clan, last of the onna-bugeisha bloodlines.
Gozen: You may call me Gozen.
Gozen: My large protector here is Akashi.
Akashi: As if the sun needs protecting.
Gozen: You are here because you are seeking answers.
Gozen: You want to know who did this to Tokyo?
Gozen: Why they did this?
Gozen: We do not have these answers.
Gozen: The Jingu Clan does not deal in information.
Gozen: - we are demon slayers.
Gozen: There are Yokai walking the streets and this is no coincidence.
Gozen: They are drawn to strife and the walls of their world are thinnest where human misery is strongest.
Gozen: But are they the cause of our current woes, or simply one of the effects?
Akashi: Does the farmer ask the rat why it eats his grain?
Akashi: No.
Akashi: Best to eradicate vermin and ask questions later.
Gozen: He is right. these Yokai are called Oni.
Gozen: We have fought them before, but never more than a single clan at a time.
Gozen: There are nine clans in Tokyo, not counting the exiles at the bathhouse.
Gozen: Co-operation on this scale is...
Gozen: ...unpecedented.
Gozen: Something, or someone, powerful must be controlling them.
Gozen: I have something to show you.
Gozen: These are the house insignias.
Gozen: Find all the clans and then discover what binds them.
Gozen: Perhaps you will find the answers that you seek.
Akashi: Free noodles for life if you return in one piece.

Tier 4

As you come into Susanoo's diner, Akashi is training a woman to use a sword.

Akashi: (Japanese) Fools! Don't swing it like a hammer.
Akashi: It has a sharp edge for a reason.
Gozen talks to you while you watch the training.
Gozen: He's not usually this tense.
Gozen: Did you find what we need?
Gozen: This much money... It doesn't surprise me that the Oni are here.
Gozen: The demons do love their avarice.
Gozen: Do you recognize any of the names?
Gozen: Assassinations.
Gozen: Somebody is cleaning up a mess.
Gozen: The real question is whether it is their own mess.
Gozen: The more time that passes, the harder it will be for you to find your answers.
Gozen: There is one source that might provide you with more information, but it will be...
Gozen: ...distasteful.
Gozen: One of the Oni, Inbeda-
Upon hearing the name Inbeda, Akashi talks to Gozen (in Japanese, and she replies as well).
Akashi: Do we consort with demons now, Mistress?
Akashi: Do we betray our sacred trust and dishonor our ancestors?
Gozen: Are you the master of this Clan now?
Gozen: Do you wish to speak for the clan?
Akashi: You are putting the Clan in danger.
Akashi: For a memory. For a love lost-
Gozen: Enough!
Gozen: Get back into your kitchen, boy.
Gozen: You lack the discipline and humility of your ancestors.
Gozen: Go!
Gozen turns her attention back to you.
Gozen: Talk to Inbeda at the bathhouse, but don't let your guard down.
Gozen: Dealing with demons is a tricky business.
Gozen: I have some apologies to make.
