Creation of Life (DM Notes)
Storyline notes

1. Etsuko Pabok returned to his village from the barbarian lands,four months ago. Everyone knew he was different, constantly brooding about.  As quickly as he returned, he disappeared once again.

Winter was coming to an end with the melting snow flowing down hill to the various creeks in the land.  The land beginning to thaw created a slippery, mushy, and wet street in every village. The early signs of spring were starting to appear, bees busy investigating the various flowers in early bloom.

You were performing your duties as village deputy, walking the rounds and ensuring things were in order.  You were filling the magistrate's position while the actual office holder was in the Imperial city.  The commoners of the village began their morning routines of feeding the livestock and preparing the morning meal.  The cherry blossom trees had a few early blooms which provided a sweet aroma to brighten the chilly morning.

An unusual sight emerged as you approached the magistrate's office, a peasant sitting on the steps looking distressed. The older man in his 60s, with a straw hat covering a wrinkled face and dirty white beard.  He wore a dirty gray tunic with a weather beaten off white wrap to keep warm.

2. Children from surrounding villages have been abducted. Tracks lead to the Crypt of Totsu Yakimatsu (a notorious shugenja from 2 centuries ago).  The is an eerie darkness surrounding the area. There are a lot of creaks and moaning of old rusty hinges.  The vegetation around the area is dead contributing to the inauspicious environment.  Dead leaves cover the stone walkway leading to the crypt and the exposed entrance is dark and empty.   ((Skeletons, Zombies, W a 6th level Shaman (Grave Domain).

He invites the characters to join.  Also at the party are a city official from Urugi (Dragon), a Samurai from Kawanuma (Dragon), an aristocrat from Shimamaki (Imperial Family), a merchant from Miyada (Crab clan), and a musician from Shingo (Scorpion).

Presents; Blue pottery jewelry container (Urugi/safe), Red silk kimono (from Shingo/safe), Blue and Green tea set (Kawanuma/danger), A Geisha music box (aristocrat/safe), and a box of 3 Jade pieces.

As the group begins to leave the party, a large explosion in the main room where the party was held.  Thick black smoke billows through the house with sorrowful screams and crying inside.
