Character Interlude and Downtime Roleplay
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. :)
Mirumoto Miyoto, the Superstar
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.
The Old Woman [4 Feb 2013]
- Mirumoto Miyoto is coming back from an encounter with Ide Kimi, wife of the Unicorn delegate leader (Ide Nakatada from the original Ryoko Owari book). Kimi is a cousin to the current Shosuro Governor, but is not held in favor with the Scorpion of the city for her “betrayal” of the Clan to the Unicorn. Kimi is seeking a staunch ally within the city and has offered to bribe Mirumoto Miyoto as the Hatamoto the the Emerald Magistrate with an information source in the Unicorn in return for a stipend of his wealth. [Mechanically, this will reflect as 2 points of your wealth for a year missing in return for minor favors].
- On the way back from the Ide Palace, Miyoto decides to visit the famed Shosuro Bath House of the city – the gaijin incense of the Unicorn estate has saturated his clothing and skin. When he arrives in the bathhouse, Miyoto hears a major commotion in the front waiting area where an old courtier woman is arguing with the proprietor saying such things as: “Do you understand who I am, young man! You cannot THINK to charge the great Kakita Dejiko, famed artisan of the Torumoru style of Tea Ceremony to enter your house of business! Why, I have often been PAID simply to arrive at a location.” The woman is clearly upset and on the verge of breaking down in the middle of the public Scorpion house.
- Mirumoto Miyoto will recognize the name of Dejiko as the owner of the Kakita Blade (Snowflake) that he carries AND as the grandmother of Kakita Sasuke. Obviously, she has slipped her attendant and is currently having one of her “episodes” [Curse of Lord Moon]. She believes she is thirty years younger and in the middle of a more honorable city. She is confused and upset [think Alzheimer’s] and will likely disgrace Kakita Sasuke with her antics. However, if Miyoto attempts to intervene, it is a surety that she WILL recognize her blade on his hip and that may cause a further issue.
