Re: OOC
Hi Aki, welcome.  I think the GM mentioned you were going to be introduced alongside my character as an escort or something.

Re: OOC
Hello! I hope to survive long enough to have you screw up my cover ... LOL!

"For those just joining us ..."

Daidoji Sakura is, in fact, Shosuro Kasumi -- a deep cover agent planted by the Scorpion well before the Coup. Pretty much everyone considers her a "true Daidoji" at this point, even "if she was a vassal".

Pretty much every Scorpion knows this (how, I don't know) ... and a certain Dragon/Ronin seems to have figured it out as well ... ;p

Re: OOC
Thats cool Sakura, Aki's wife is a Scorpion maybe she knows... Of course she wouldn't tell Aki if she did...

In reply to Daidoji Sakura (msg #773):

actually, only three Scorpion know this (Soshi Manami, Shosuro Shinobu, and Bayushi Tenma though others might suspect ^_^

Re: OOC

 That's not strictly true Sakura... unfortunately you really, really annoyingly told me your entire character background before we started RP'ing together so half of the things Kedo has noticed that he might have interpreted that way have to be disgregarded because they might mean other things and I can't have him act or assess based on OOC knowledge that slants the deductive process.

 Fortunately he specialises in cryptic wisdom rather than out and out discussion, so it's not so far come up. ^_^

Re: OOC
Well, if it makes you feel any better, Sakura, my character doesn't know! ^_^
Then again, he wouldn't know the difference between a Scorpion and a Crane other than the colors they are always wearing anyway. The difference between a Soshi and a Daidoji, sure, but these family-alliance clan things are too confusing. :(

On the other hand... he knows a lot of things no one is supposed to know. Joy! ^o^

Re: OOC
sorry, I'll get something up for everyone tonight--I was hoping that my AWOL players would show up, but I'll just have to lower the skills of the bad guys ^_^;;;

Re: OOC

 Works for me. Might I suggest in future a simple 'good faith' system where a player in a combat scene has say, three days to respond unless they've mentioned in advance that they're going to be away.

 That should allow for about two updates a week.

 Seem fair?

Re: OOC
sounds fair to me, how does everyone else feel about it?

if you're in a combat scene, you've got 3 days to post before we move on without your action

majority rules, if enough people are in agreement I'll add it to the house ruleset

Ah, my mistake.

*chuckles* Sorry.

I tried playing it the other way in one of Sakura's previous incarnations, but it just didn't work. I write for enjoyment -- both myself and others. When no one else got to read what was going on I felt bad ...

Re: OOC
Honestly, I'd suggest being even harsher and making it 2 days.  Having run a few games, nothing kills them quite so quickly as a month-long combat thread.

Re: OOC

 Actually, I don't know that they're mon-less... GM never describes any of them - archers or spearmen - and for some reason I had imagined them as wearing Crane armour, if only as a disguise.

 They're almost certainly using what a Crane might well recognise as Harrier techniques though... But again, I don't think we quite nailed that down either. ^_^

Re: OOC
they're wearing blue (I'm sure I did say that at some point ^_^;;;)
they are wearing ashigaru armor (I'll make that clearer in the next post)
anything else, you'll have to make a Know the School roll for ^_^

Re: OOC

 Heh... in which case what you have up ahead is a small group of disreputable-looking fellows including a couple of ronin, some of whom are rather bloodstained (because of the lack of opportunity to clean up properly after the literal bloodbath earlier) apparently resisting arrest at the hands of what appear at first glance to be at least Crane Ashigaru...

 ...not that I'm encouraging anyone to lump in on their side mind you. ^_^

Re: OOC
ah, but what you also have at first glance is what appears to be a few Crane Ashigaru attempting to arrest several Great Clan samurai--including a Crane Shugenja and Bushi--with deadly force ^_^

Re: OOC

 ...in a time when there's a Lion army parked outside the gate. And rumours of ninja assassins butchering officers in their offices and bathers in their baths.

 In other words, at a time of considerable confusion. ^_^

Re: OOC
Which is why I'm trying to put everyone to sleep until it's sorted out.

With preference to the group that doesn't (appear to) include another girl from my school. ^_^
