<div>==Council Makeup and Authority==<br />
<br />
The Regency Council is the highest authority in the empire, charged with maintaining the empire until a new emperor takes the throne.<br />
<br />
The council meets in the Hidden City and is made up of one representative of each of the twelve kingdoms. There are a couple of ex officio members of the council as well, although they technically do not have a vote, and are not referred to as "Regents".<br />
<br />
How each kingdom chooses its regent is left up to the individual kingdoms. Some are appointed by their respective monarchs, some are shuffled on a regular basis.<br />
<br />
==Council Members==<br />
<br />
Currently known members of the council are:<br />
<br />
===Voting Representatives===<br />
<br />
#Ishii Makato, [[Ti Wren]]'s brother, is the regent from the [[Butterfly Kingdom]]. He was appointed shortly after Ti Wren's marriage.<br />
#[[Qin Chao Steppes]] - Much more casual (appearing) than most of the rest of the Regents, he has a big file cabinet that he consults to decide what to do, and is happy to trade votes for future favors. His wife is also involved somehow, in that whole weird Steppes way. He is nice enough that he can roll for sixes against Cai Wen, and Cai Wen will definitely be trying to stop by his house again next time we're in Dragon's Throne.<br />
#[[Craneslake Heights]] - A serious crane, she noticed the "battle between light and dark" in [[Revelations]], and traded some votes for the briefing that it's a fight over turning into the Spider Empire.<br />
#[[Shrouded Isle]]: Kusuhara Romi<br />
#[[Bear Mountain]]: Conservative and concerned with the traditions of the Empire. Was willing to be helpful to Min Feng, as a Minister from his country.<br />
#[[Jade Taiga]]: [[Zi Miro Khan]] (who was encountered at a distance in [[Shadow Puppets]])<br />
#[[Forest of Chin]]<br />
#[[Hon'eth Arcade]] A major player in the Illuminocracy mechanic, Master Deng defended him from an honor duel for a vote or two.<br />
#[[Hidden City]] vice-mayor - named Mar Lang according to [[Doomhunter]], since replaced (probably?) by Wang Xiaofang in [[Vice Mayor]]<br />
#[[Strand]] Happily trades votes for secrets. No one else waits in her waiting room when you arrive, and you enter her office through the secret door, not the visible one. She already knew about the "making it the spider empire" plan, but took the Lobster vs. Speedy story for a not-too-close vote.<br />
#[[Plains of Honor]] "I don't trade votes. Give me military information." But we kinda liked him.<br />
#[[Illuminated Precincts]]<br />
<br />
===Ex Officio Members===<br />
#The Obsidian Warlord<br />
#Mayor of the Hidden City<br />

==Zhu Cai Wen's Notes==<br />
<br />
Hitting a number once, and doing a mission, results in an Arcade Score (? of 5) and a Spirit Minigame Score, which has usually been 5 points distributed between Magpie and Wolf, except for exceptions.<br />
<br />
Hitting a number a second (or subsequent) time within a week usually results in some extra credit, for both the Arcade and the Spirit Minigame. The mission will usually be strongly related (maybe a follow-up) to the original mission.<br />
<br />
When a week ends (after the run in which the 7 is rolled):<br />
<br />
''Temporal Score'': Arcade Houses make their rolls. If they roll Military, and succeed (rolling equal to or under their stat), then they contribute 3*roll to the Arcade score for that week. (Hitting the house stat exactly also gets an extra bonus of some kind.) Failing a Military roll results in the House taking a point of damage to its Military stat. Arcade points from the Winter Scoreboard for that week (including extra credit) are summed with points from House Military rolls, and compared to a victory target number. If the total Arcade Points exceeds the victory number, the Arcade gains ground in the war, and ''excess'' points are (approximately) divided by 2 and placed in the extra credit column of the "7" row for the next week.<br />
<br />
''Spiritual Score'': Cai Wen thinks that the outcome of the minigame isn't as simple as "whoever has more points wins", or "majority vote of points (after negotiation) wins". In particular, trying to suss out Horse's motivation for getting on the board, Cai Wen thinks that there is something intentionally obfuscatory about the contest. For Spirit Minigame extra credit, the state of each week begins with the end-state of the previous week, and then updates as necessary. (i.e. my best estimate of total points for each spirit is the sum of scores from the Spiritual Score column, plus the extra credit '''from the current week only'''.<br />
<br />
Some things we might like to roll if we can:<br />
* 3: The intel leak that allegedly caused the Fiasco in week 2 (Roll 8), blamed on the Arcade<br />
* 4: Chiyo's secret mission is on this number<br />
* 10: The Black Market<br />
* "Can't roll that high" (presumed to be 13): Benevolent HQ security<br />
* ???: What's up with the Sea Lord<br />
<br />
[Takanata adds: We think the Sea Lord and Renyu are on the same number, based on something Kiri said. Min Feng says Renyu is a 1. I got bonus art for that, which is Horse and Wolf going on a boat trip.]<br />
<br />
The second week we were on the Imperial mission, Lady Jin rolled a six and did that mission.<br />
<br />
<br />
<br />
<br />
====Cai Wen's older notes====<br />
Rolling a 7 causes time to go forward. The first week was a solid victory for the Arcade.<br />
<br />
We think that there are probably changes to House Stats [[GreatHousesMechanic]] that aren't visible currently, but we observed that The House of Enticing Vintage and House of Gainful Protection both lost a point of Mil stat, and I think that's because they missed the roll. This is long-term damage.<br />
<br />
To score a victory for the Arcade for a week: there's a threshold for success (not known, but I'm thinking about it). Best understanding: ''Successful'' Great-House military rolls were added to Arcade points from the scoreboard, and these resulted in about 26 points over the threshold. Because the total was enough to hit the threshold, we didn't have to use any extra credit points (guessing this is why they are still on the scoreboard); the ~26 extra were halved, and added to extra credit in the "7" row.<br />
<br />
I don't yet have much insight into the consequences of the spirit battle; every time I try to think about it and figure out what it means that other spirits (other than Wolf/Magpie) have some points, I can't figure out the rules. I.e. I don't think it's as simple as "other spirits could make deals with one of them, and add their points, to win". The topic seems resistant to attempts to figure it out.</div>Takanatahttp://boojum.scripts.mit.edu/Dragon/index.php?title=Winter_ScoreboardWinter Scoreboard2020-07-11T17:39:05Z<p>Takanata: </p>

(i.e. my best estimate of total points for each spirit is the sum of scores from the Spiritual Score column, plus the extra credit '''from the current week only'''.<br />
<br />
Some things we might like to roll if we can:<br />
* 3: The intel leak that allegedly caused the Fiasco in week 2 (Roll 8), blamed on the Arcade<br />
* 4: Chiyo's secret mission is on this number<br />
* 10: The Black Market<br />
* "Can't roll that high" (presumed to be 13): Benevolent HQ security<br />
* ???: What's up with the Sea Lord<br />
<br />
[Takanata adds: We think the Sea Lord and Renyu are on the same number, based on something Kiri said. Min Feng says Renyu is a 1. I got bonus art for that, which is Horse and Wolf going on a boat trip.]<br />
<br />
<br />
<br />
<br />
====Cai Wen's older notes====<br />
Rolling a 7 causes time to go forward. The first week was a solid victory for the Arcade.<br />
<br />
We think that there are probably changes to House Stats [[GreatHousesMechanic]] that aren't visible currently, but we observed that The House of Enticing Vintage and House of Gainful Protection both lost a point of Mil stat, and I think that's because they missed the roll. This is long-term damage.<br />
<br />
To score a victory for the Arcade for a week: there's a threshold for success (not known, but I'm thinking about it). Best understanding: ''Successful'' Great-House military rolls were added to Arcade points from the scoreboard, and these resulted in about 26 points over the threshold. Because the total was enough to hit the threshold, we didn't have to use any extra credit points (guessing this is why they are still on the scoreboard); the ~26 extra were halved, and added to extra credit in the "7" row.<br />
<br />
I don't yet have much insight into the consequences of the spirit battle; every time I try to think about it and figure out what it means that other spirits (other than Wolf/Magpie) have some points, I can't figure out the rules. I.e. I don't think it's as simple as "other spirits could make deals with one of them, and add their points, to win". The topic seems resistant to attempts to figure it out.</div>Takanatahttp://boojum.scripts.mit.edu/Dragon/index.php?title=Talk:TakanataTalk:Takanata2020-07-11T04:16:19Z<p>Takanata: </p>

<hr />
<div>Takanata has being doing investigations on Coyote.<br />
<br />
Consulting with Li Kao, he suggested that the thing I did not know the answer to which would provide the most enlightenment was "Why wasn't Coyote in disguise as Fox when you first ran in to him?"<br />
<br />
Consulting with Sister [[Dohna]] of the Ways of the Three Worlds temple (see [[ThreeWorlds]]), after consideration she believes the answer to that question is that Coyote did not know what Fox looked like at that time.<br />
<br />
Takanata concludes that this means Coyote has less of a deliberate plan here, and is more simply exploring to see what he can do.<br />
<br />
-----<br />
<br />
I Ching Scrying on the Great Spirits and their relationships with Coyote:<br />
<br />
I get tokens for the 12 cycle spirits, and then add tokens for the four wanna-bes (Dragon, Wolf, Horse, Whale). Then I try to divide them into Yin/Yang/Chi regarding Coyote.<br />
<br />
I am even less clear on what I think those divisions mean here than I usually am.<br />
One possibility:<br />
Yang: Helping Coyote<br />
Yin: Opposing Coyote<br />
Chi: Messing with Coyote<br />
<br />
''You start out thinking this, but you decide to switch Yang and Yin. No<br />
one is as yangily pro-Coyote as they are yangily anti-Coyote. And Chi<br />
isn't really right, it's something else. ''<br />
<br />
''Crane is Yang for Yin reasons.<br><br />
''Bear is Yang for Yang reasons<br><br />
''Dog is Yang for Chi reasons<br><br />
''Butterfly is Yin for Chi reasons.<br><br />
''Serpent is Chi for Chi reasons<br><br />
''Phoenix is Yin for Yang reasons<br><br />
''Tortoise is Chi for Yin reasons<br><br />
''Magpie is Chi for Chi reasons<br><br />
''Fox is Chi for [redacted] reasons<br><br />
''Spider is Yang for Yin reasons<br><br />
''Tiger is Chi for Yang reasons<br><br />
''Monkey is Yin for Yang reasons<br><br />
''Dragon is Yang for Chi reasons<br><br />
''Wolf is Yang for Chi reasons<br><br />
''Horse is Chi for Chi reasons<br><br />
''Whale is Yin for Yang reasons''<br />
<br />
I get to ask 11 questions about the Yang answers, 13 about the Yin, and 11 about the Chi.<br />
<br />
Yang:<br />
<br />
1) Was Crane Yang for Yang reasons when she warned Li Merit about Coyote at the Temple of the Invisible Wind?<br />
<br />
''Hmm. No, we think still Yin reasons. (But the Yang and Yin of the reasons aren't the same as the Yang and Yin of being pro or anti Coyote. We don't think this mechanic has ever had those mean the same thing...)''<br />
<br />
''Maybe we're confused about this question. ''<br />
<br />
2) Are Dog and Dragon's "Yang for Chi reasons" approximately the same?<br />
<br />
''Mostly; Dragon is more principle and Dog is more personal.''<br />
<br />
3) Are Spider's Yin reasons something more than just "he doesn't belong in My Empire"?<br />
<br />
''It's in that ballpark, but much more so.''<br />
<br />
4) Are Wolf's Yang reasons related to "there are already enough canine-ish things here"?<br />
<br />
''Not primarily or even secondarily. It might be included towards the bottom of the list.''<br />
<br />
5) Are Dog's "more personal" Chi reasons actually related to prior history between Dog and Coyote, or just a matter of their clashing natures?<br />
<br />
''The latter, but there's also something more involved. (Not history).''<br />
<br />
6) Is Bear Yang-enough that he is taking active steps, or is he still in the "don't do anything until Really Provoked" stage of his nature?<br />
<br />
''mm, it's somewhat in between. He's not in seek-and-destroy mode, but he's closer to "on hold" than "will swat if provoked".''<br />
<br />
7) Does Crane understand what Coyote wants here? <br />
<br />
''No. ''<br />
<br />
8) Is Wolf's Yang-ness related to whatever Coyote did to mess with Wolf's Talisman?<br />
<br />
''In part. ''<br />
<br />
9) Is Bear "On Hold" just because there's a big foreign spirit in the Empire, or is there something more specific he is paying attention to?<br />
<br />
''It's more about an opposition of natures than an opposition of plot. ''<br />
<br />
10) Are Dog's personal reasons about Coyote's interactions with another Great Spirit or Spirits?<br />
<br />
''The Coyote/Fox thing is part of it. ''<br />
<br />
11) Is any of Spider's Yangness because Coyote's "always double down" nature resonates with Aku's "always reach higher" nature?<br />
<br />
''Mmm, not particularly. But that's an interesting thought. Spider is "build a wall" xenophobic, but Aku is not. Spider's Yangness is more driven by Spider than Aku here. Aku may be on spider-autopilot in this case because he hasn't turned sufficient attention to Coyote yet.''<br />
<br />
Yin:<br />
<br />
1) Is Yin really "pro" Coyote, or more just not-strongly-anti Coyote (it sounds kinda like the second, given the switch?)?<br />
<br />
''Yin is more positive than negative, though that can be only by a small amount. (Chi is more like "It's complicated")''<br />
<br />
<br />
2) Are Butterfly's Chi reasons more a result of Xian being Coyote Aspected, or more a cause of that, or something else entirely?<br />
<br />
''Something else. ''<br />
<br />
3) Does Whale hope Coyote's presence will help him get into the Cycle?<br />
<br />
''That's a minority part of it. ''<br />
<br />
4) Are Phoenix's reasons related to her being from outside the Empire originally?<br />
<br />
''Yes. ''<br />
<br />
5) Does Monkey have an actual plan for Coyote beyond "woo, more Chaos!"?<br />
<br />
''Yes, sort of, but it's within a stone's throw of "more Chaos!"''<br />
<br />
<br />
6) How deliberate was Whale's involvement in Coyote coming to the Empire?<br />
<br />
''Completely deliberate. ''<br />
<br />
7) How much of Butterfly's Yin-ness is just opposition to Spider's Yang?<br />
<br />
''More opposition to Spider, than opposition to Spider being Yang. But that's Butterfly's Yang reason, and her chi reason is stronger. ''<br />
<br />
8) Is Whale helping Coyote get back and forth from and/or remain in contact with his Homeland in the East?<br />
<br />
''Not yet. ''<br />
<br />
9) Did the fact both Butterfly and Phoenix are Yin help Coyote enter the Empire?<br />
<br />
''No.''<br />
<br />
10) Has Whale received his payment for his assistance getting Coyote into the Empire?<br />
<br />
''Yes. ''<br />
<br />
11) Are Phoenix's reasons for being Yin related to Coyote's interactions with the South?<br />
<br />
''No, related to *her* interactions with the South. ''<br />
<br />
12) Did Coyote provide any background assistance during Enemy of the State to secure Butterfly or Phoenix's support?<br />
<br />
''No.''<br />
<br />
13) Do any of the Yin spirits want Coyote to remain in the Empire permanently?<br />
<br />
''Monkey does, sometimes.''<br />
<br />
Chi:<br />
<br />
1&2) What the heck does Chi even mean?<br />
<br />
''Chi is more like "Using Coyote" except also "Being Used by Coyote". Those two are more intrinsically linked than they normally would be.''<br />
<br />
3) Are Fox's [redacted] reasons related to the question Li Kao asked me about why Coyote was not disguised as Fox when we met him in Fox's realm?<br />
<br />
''Only temporally, not causally. ''<br />
<br />
4) Who redacted Fox's reasons?<br />
<br />
''[redacted]. But it's more "what" than "who".''<br />
<br />
5) Is Tiger's Chi-ness some sort of Coyote thwackback for a direct attack, or more deliberately chosen on Tiger's part?<br />
<br />
''It's more deliberate, and it's less about Coyote than it is about other things. ''<br />
<br />
6 & 7) How is Coyote using Horse? [putting two points towards this, because it seems broader than the standard question I ask here]<br />
<br />
''Horse makes everything higher energy, and Coyote always doubles down. Horse is one of the few (semi) Great Spirits whose nature easily encompasses both being a patsy and being a confederate. Coyote is sniffing for a loophole in the Horse / Wolf arrangement. ''<br />
<br />
8) Would Horse be willing to describe his deals with Coyote for a reasonable price? (Say, "less than a country tag level favor.")<br />
<br />
''That seems like it would be reasonable.''<br />
<br />
9) Would the Pearl of the Taiga have any insight into Fox's dealings with Coyote she could share?<br />
<br />
''Not very much because Xian never took her up on her invitation. ''<br />
<br />
10) Are Tortoise's reasons for being Chi approximately the "what happens if I push this over" sorts of thing that led him to help Spider in the past?<br />
<br />
''Tortoise is Chi, and "what if I push this over" would be more explicitly Yang, but there is an element of the scientist in it, yes.''<br />
<br />
11) Is the fact that all three of the Spirits whose countries touch the Southern Wall are Chi significant, or simply coincidence?<br />
<br />
''Coincidence.

''Horse is Chi for Chi reasons<br><br />
''Whale is Yin for Yang reasons''<br />
<br />
I get to ask 11 questions about the Yang answers, 13 about the Yin, and 11 about the Chi.<br />
<br />
Yang:<br />
<br />
1) Was Crane Yang for Yang reasons when she warned Li Merit about Coyote at the Temple of the Invisible Wind?<br />
<br />
''Hmm. No, we think still Yin reasons. (But the Yang and Yin of the reasons aren't the same as the Yang and Yin of being pro or anti Coyote. We don't think this mechanic has ever had those mean the same thing...)''<br />
<br />
''Maybe we're confused about this question. ''<br />
<br />
2) Are Dog and Dragon's "Yang for Chi reasons" approximately the same?<br />
<br />
''Mostly; Dragon is more principle and Dog is more personal.''<br />
<br />
3) Are Spider's Yin reasons something more than just "he doesn't belong in My Empire"?<br />
<br />
''It's in that ballpark, but much more so.''<br />
<br />
4) Are Wolf's Yang reasons related to "there are already enough canine-ish things here"?<br />
<br />
''Not primarily or even secondarily. It might be included towards the bottom of the list.''<br />
<br />
5) Are Dog's "more personal" Chi reasons actually related to prior history between Dog and Coyote, or just a matter of their clashing natures?<br />
<br />
''The latter, but there's also something more involved. (Not history).''<br />
<br />
6) Is Bear Yang-enough that he is taking active steps, or is he still in the "don't do anything until Really Provoked" stage of his nature?<br />
<br />
''mm, it's somewhat in between. He's not in seek-and-destroy mode, but he's closer to "on hold" than "will swat if provoked".''<br />
<br />
7) Does Crane understand what Coyote wants here? <br />
<br />
''No. ''<br />
<br />
8) Is Wolf's Yang-ness related to whatever Coyote did to mess with Wolf's Talisman?<br />
<br />
''In part. ''<br />
<br />
9) Is Bear "On Hold" just because there's a big foreign spirit in the Empire, or is there something more specific he is paying attention to?<br />
<br />
''It's more about an opposition of natures than an opposition of plot. ''<br />
<br />
10) Are Dog's personal reasons about Coyote's interactions with another Great Spirit or Spirits?<br />
<br />
''The Coyote/Fox thing is part of it. ''<br />
<br />
11) Is any of Spider's Yangness because Coyote's "always double down" nature resonates with Aku's "always reach higher" nature?<br />
<br />
''Mmm, not particularly. But that's an interesting thought. Spider is "build a wall" xenophobic, but Aku is not. Spider's Yangness is more driven by Spider than Aku here. Aku may be on spider-autopilot in this case because he hasn't turned sufficient attention to Coyote yet.''</div>Takanatahttp://boojum.scripts.mit.edu/Dragon/index.php?title=Main_PageMain Page2020-05-18T02:43:38Z<p>Takanata: /* World Notes */</p>

}}<br />
<br />
Shen-ji gathers people in Tahiti to get assistance for the Dragon Boat Festival which will be happening in the City of Light. The group head south to Olive Partridge Island to get a briefing from Shen-ji's wife. House Sakong wants to know if they should hire rowers or if the party is going to do it. They decide that some will help row, but others will keep an eye out for shenanigans and plots. <br />
<br />
There will be twelve boats in the big race: five noble houses, five merchant guilds, and a couple of others, including the apprentices of the Exalted Library. The Sages will keep an eye on things to make sure there are no shenanigans, and Kuan-Xi notes that she should also do so. "No shenanigans" is good for making it Dragon-y - or, at least, people who commit shenanigans should probably not win. <br />
<br />
Shen-ji will be the Sakong boat captain; the rowers will be Master Deng and some hired rowers. <br />
<br />
The party tours the river race course in a little boat belonging to House Sakong. They note some other little boats doing the same thing. <br />
<br />
{{Q|Isn't that that mage that hates you?}}<br />
<br />
One of the little boat has Yuwen Fire-Eye in it; another is carrying the Talisman of the Whale. After the little boats row around for a while, another set of boats come by, ordering everyone to shore. Then a boat carrying the King of the Illuminated Precincts goes around looking at the course as well. <br />
<br />
After the King's boat has gone, the party spots another boat farther ahead, throwing pebbles in the river. Shen-Ji thinks there is some sort of earth magic in them. The party boat waits until the mysterious pebble-throwing boat moves along, and Kuan-Xi swims down to get one of the pebbles. It seems to be filled with pre-programmed bits of magic - throwing a little bit of magic at it will cause it to invoke a lot of pre-cast spells. <br />
<br />
The party heads to the mouth of the river, at the coast, and drops the pebble into the water, where Shen-Ji tries to summon a sculpture underneath it. The pebble flings itself at him, and then holes his boat. Kuan-Xi and Deng bail, and the rowboat limps back to Olive Partridge Island, where they borrow another boat and head back to the river racecourse to investigate further. <br />
<br />
Kuan-Xi hunts down another pebble, and the group heads to another branch of the river to test it. This time, the caster is on shore, and the pebble is in the water vaguely near the shore, the boat is at a third point of the triangle. Kuan-Xi, on shore, casts a spell to dry Xiao Fa, in the boat. Again, the boat gets holed. Obviously, this is a plan to sink other boats by casting harmless spells on them.<br />
<br />
Shen-Ji and Kuan-Xi spend half the night searching the riverbed for pebbles, and come up with a bunch. It's 3am, so the race officials are probably not up any longer, so the group decides to wait until morning to report. <br />
<br />
In the morning, Master Deng is dressed in the Olive Partridge house livery (olive and gold), and gives an inspirational speech to the other rowers. He brings some duplicating paper, in order to communicate with the others. The dragon boats take their places at the starting line, and the sages acting as referees are on hopboats along the course. <br />
<br />
Kuan-Xi goes to report the pebbles to the sage at the starting line. The sage frowns, and says that sounds like a shenanigan point. Kuan-Xi is sad; does that mean reporting shenanigans is itself shenanigans? No, but the sages can only keep track of shenanigans that they know about.<br />
<br />
Yuwen Fire-Eye is in the boat belonging to House He. The King is bestowing his royal blessings on a boat belonging to another one of the noble houses. Are there any other potential sorcerers? The only one that Shen-ji notices is Renyu, who has water magic - he and Kiri are in a two-person dragon boat. <br />
<br />
Xiao Fa ingratiates himself with the Precincts Regent, and gets into his entourage in order to get into the VIP viewing area, where the King is. The King is talking to some other VIPs who are explaining about the grand tradition of the Dragon Boats, though the King is a little less psyched. After all, they might all just sink. They'll see what happens. <br />
<br />
Xiao Fa introduces himself as Lo Xiao Fa, but no one seems to take that as an omen. <br />
How did it used to work? Cycles and cycles ago, there were fabulous races, the winner would be greeted by the emperor and granted a gift or a boon or something. But let's wait a bit to see if they all sink or lead to insurrection or what. <br />
<br />
Xiao Fa asks if Kuan-Xi can work for the sages as a shenanigan-detector. The king asks if she would like to work for the king instead - in case the honor of the race needs saving? Xiao Fa agrees to that, so the King tells him to make it so. There's no need for him to meet Kuan-Xi, and he notes to the Precincts regent that if she destroys the race, he's never met her.<br />
<br />
The race begins. <br />
<br />
{{boxed|'''Dragon Boat Mechanic''': 5d12 are rolled; those are the boats that pull ahead or fall behind. Most boats have a d8 of rowing, but some have more (Renyu's boat is a d12) and the Library Apprentices (who try twice as hard) get to roll 2d6 and pick the better roll. If there are duplicates on the 5d12, then the boat with the duplicate gets to roll twice and pick the better roll. The second worst roll is the pack speed, so the boat with the worst roll falls behind, and the other boats pull ahead.}}<br />
<br />
Master Deng checks for nearby danger, and senses monsters in the water up ahead. He writes a note on the duplicating paper; Shen-Ji has to grab an oar to keep the boat from falling behind. Kuan-Xi stays in the shallows, puddle-jumping ahead to keep up with the boats. <br />
<br />
In the first few rounds, Renyu's boat (boat 11) and Yuwen Fire-Eye's boat (boat 1) pull ahead due to some lucky rolls. Then they reach a stretch where none of the sages' hopboats can see anyone, and the shenanigans start to come out. <br />
<br />
Shen-Ji's boat (boat 4) catches on fire, and Kuan-Xi puddle-jumps over to it and douses the flames. She can see into the water somewhat to the monster that Deng has pointed out, and notes that it has tentacles. <br />
<br />
Each of the merchants guild boats is a strength-based guild assisted by an int-based guild. The charcoal burners (boat 10) throw a paper airplane (prepared by the scribes' guild) over to boat 9, House Yeoun's boat.<br />
<br />
{{Q|Watch out for the blue blue yellow yellow kraken kraken blue kraken? This doesn't make any sense.}}<br />
<br />
Renyu's boat bursts into flame, and the rowers in another boat shout about pebbles. Kuan-Xi notes that Renyu is using something a lot like her "current" shtick (taking their boat from a d8 to a d10), and he has one level of "repel sea monsters" up, but he probably has some other magical effect getting their boat from a d10 to a d12. <br />
<br />
Tentacles rise from the river and grab boat 9. Kuan-Xi notes a flare of magic from near the VIP area, and passes that along to Xiao Fa.<br />
<br />
{{QQ|I can put out the fire by filling the boat with water.|Renyu}}<br />
{{QQ|You do not understand how boats work.|Kiri}}<br />
<br />
Xiao Fa notes that there are some artists in the VIP box - one is painting the King, and one is painting the boats, and a third is painting a picture of Boat 2 way out in front (which it is currently not). He thinks the third artist is using chi for something...<br />
<br />
{{QQ|Should I do something about this, or should I Imre further?|Eon}}<br />
<br />
Yuwen's boat continues to do well, leading to some complaints about replacing the dice. However, despite continuing to get actions, her boat mostly rolls 1s on its d8s, so it keeps falling behind anyway. <br />
<br />
{{QQ|Shenaniganers never prosper!|Xiao Fa}}<br />
<br />
More boats catch on fire, and the kraken tentacles start flinging rowers into the water. Shen-Ji shouts to the sage's hopboat to watch Boats 1 and 2 in particular for shenanigans. <br />
<br />
Kuan-Xi starts to fish a rower out of the water, and then Golden Flame, on a golden-clad seahorse, surfaces to rescue the other rowser. Boat 6 (the Smiths' Guild, assisted by the Alchemists' Guild) turns out to be the one unhappy that their pebbles aren't working - if they were working, surely the boat setting other boats on fire would have sunk by now. <br />
<br />
Xiao Fa stands in between the artist and the boats, and warns him that he should stop what he's doing lest Xiao Fa expose him - or worse. He thinks Xiao Fa is bluffing, but Xiao Fa grounds his chi and bounces the boat-zooming effect he's trying to do. <br />
<br />
Boat 10 reaches Boat 6 (the Library Apprentices) with another paper airplane about kraken.<br />
<br />
{{Q|Ooh! A research note!}} <br />
<br />
Yuwen sets Boat 6 on fire, but the sages spot it this time. Kuan-Xi and Golden Flame rescue the Library Apprentices from their set of kraken tentacles. Boat 2 offers Boat 1 a royal favor to trade places, but Yuwen doesn't go for it. Pao extinguishes the flames on Shen-Ji's boat and Yuwen's boat gets far enough ahead to pass the Line of Doom where the monster Deng spotted lurked. (Renyu's boat has passed the Line of Doom already, but his protection from sea monsters effect is still there). <br />
<br />
The Sharktopus emerges from the depths, to grab Yuwen's rowers, but instead of flinging them in the water, it looks ready to eat them. Golden Flame starts chopping the sharktopus, and another sea horse comes up from the depths of the river. Dressed in green and carrying a pennant showing a golden dragon on a green background, Prince Ti Jun goes into battle against the sharktopus as well, and rescues a guy from mid-chomp. <br />
<br />
Kuan-Xi rescues some of Yuwen's rowers to deliver them to shore, and Golden Flame does the same, but returning them to their boat. That leaves Yuwen down several rowers and they only get to roll a d6. <br />
<br />
Ti Jun and Kuan-Xi fence over who is telling the other one to rescue people (and thus getting more credit) as they fight the sharktopus, and Shen-ji sets it on fire for an added bonus. <br />
<br />
Up in the VIP viewing area, the artist tries again to boost Boat 2, and Xiao Fa chi-blocks him. <br />
Shen-ji hits Renyu's boat (now closest to winning) with a dispel magic, and Yuwen sets it on fire again. Boat 2 trades the King's Favor to Renyu to swap places, as the charcoal burners throw more paper airplanes. <br />
<br />
That leaves the Library Apprentices, dogged and so far cheat-free, to make a final push to reach the finish line first. <br />

<br />
==Bandits==<br />
<br />
The party is in the Tea Tent in the Tanzhe Plain HQ, when Lijuan draws some art.<br />
<br />
[[File:Bandits-sketch.JPG|300px]]<br />
<br />
A soldier in uniform runs up, asking if anyone has seen Governor Xiao Fa? As no one has, he starts to run off again, but Cai Wen wants to know who he is and what he needs. He says he is Lieutenant Ming of the Dragon's Fang, and there is a report of banditry in Sector 3. Cai Wen starts gathering people up to investigate, and Lieutenant Ming says that the Governor wanted to have peaceful suppression of banditry. Cai Wen finds that a little odd, and asks around - are there orders from Xiao Fa saying this? Multiple people in the "Dragon's Fang" seem to claim this, but nobody else has heard it. <br />
<br />
The group heads up to the bandit site, where they meet Sergeant Fushen of the Tanzhe Irregulars. <br />
<br />
{{QQ|Not the Dragon's Fang?|Kuan-Xi}}<br />
{{QQ|Oh, is that what we're going with? I thought it was the Tanzhe Irregulars.|Sgt Fushen}}<br />
<br />
There is an unconscious merchant, and an empty cart. The sergeant has thus far concluded that bandits have attacked the merchant and taken his stuff. <br />
<br />
Cai Wen is very suspicious - Lijuan's art has some loot on the ground, and a bone. ''Where is the bone?'' Lijuan ignores the artistic quibbling, and casts about for tracks. It appears that the cart was coming from the main part of the Arcade in the northeast, when bandits came out of the tall grass and battle ensued. The bandits were masters, so the merchants were soon overcome, and then the bandits ran off to the northwest. <br />
<br />
Those with first aid wake up the unconscious merchant - he says that he was traveling with two companions, and they were carrying food and other supplies to Leaves in Spring, to aid in the rebuilding. Cai Wen wants to know a detailed inventory of the supplies - several casks of nails, for example. This all seems suspicious - Lijuan is not sure why bandits would steal nails instead of buying them. Others think that stealing nails is hardly worthwhile, though the merchant certainly disagrees. Lijuan also notes that the other two companions are not here - they seem to have gone with the bandits, either willingly or not. The tracks themselves are silent as to whether the companions were in on it or captured. The caravan master says he will go complain to the Governor about Lord Zhen's banditry, and the party sends him off to go do that. <br />
<br />
Takanata arrives, having finished his own painting, and shows it to the group. <br />
<br />
[[File:Art-mirrors.png|300px]]<br />
<br />
<br />
The picture on the left is Lijuan's art, but while the picture on the right is very similar, it has the party from [[Caravans]] instead, as well as seeming to be a reflection. So maybe mirrors or mirror demons are involved? People quickly skim the Caravans log, and vow to not repeat the mistakes of the past, whatever they were. <br />
<br />
The bandit tracks go off to the northwest; there are two columns of smoke rising in the air, one in the same northwest direction and one off to the northeast. The group heads to the northwest smoke, and finds a small hovel made of sticks, that appears to have been burnt. A woman inside shouts to stay away - she has a sword! The party persuades her that they aren't the bad guys, though she is still cautious about saying anything - she was a witness, and they said if she told anyone, they'd come back and kill her. <br />
<br />
Kuan-Xi says that the Governor sent them to help - here's 5 li to help her rebuild her house - and asks if she can tell them any more. The money reassures her, and she says that a party of armed men rode by, and one shouted to another that she would warn people that they had escaped back to Lord Zhen, and to burn her house. And, if she told anyone, they would come back and burn her. <br />
<br />
Cai Wen assures her that justice will be done, in the name of the Governor.<br />
<br />
==The What of What?==<br />
<br />
Rather than follow the bandits further, the group heads to the other pillar of smoke, where there is a man carefully throwing straw on a fire to make it smoke. He is dressed in a hooded cloak and carries a heavy staff, and Cai Wen thinks there is something of the [[Arbiter]] about him. He introduces himself:<br />
<br />
{{Q|I am the Advocate. I wish to be escorted to the Conference. I did not wish to cross your lands unannounced.}}<br />
<br />
In particular, there is a meeting of the... alternative commerce interests... in the area, which will be taking place in the Tanzhe tomorrow. Happily, the Master of the White Pagoda has guaranteed the security of the proceedings. The [[Advocate]] himself is here on behalf of the [[Circle of Spite]] and the [[League of the Hidden Hand]]. Interesting - does he represent all of their interests in all things? How does that work, since they are generally competitors? He clarifies that he represents their joint interests in ''this'' venture. <br />
<br />
The party agrees to escort him to the center of the Tanzhe (where the meeting is to be), but <br />
Cai Wen notes that there is likely to be exuberant interference in the meeting, unless there is some discussion of the matters in question first. <br />
<br />
{{QQ|Nice little conference you have here. A shame if anything were to happen to it.|Everyone}}<br />
<br />
Those that the Advocate speaks for, wish to secure control of the Tanzhe's criminal commercial endeavors on behalf of the eastern powers. People are still confused about why he is using the Shadow-type shticks - is he working with the Shadow? He explains that the Arbiter worked for the Shadow, but since the fall of the Shadow Castle, the new masters of that place have not seen fit to replace him. But where there is a void, it is filled regardless, so the Advocate has arisen to fill that space. (Cai Wen notes that he pulls off the Shadowy Figure shtick pretty well, though he is possibly not at the level of the late Arbiter). <br />
<br />
Master Zhou finally wakes up, and gets up to speed on the bandit meeting that he has volunteered to provide security for. Of course, he has done no such thing, and is rather put out that anyone would believe he had. <br />
<br />
{{QQ|Why does anyone believe that I do '''anything'''?|Master Zhou}}<br />
<br />
He introduces himself to the Advocate, and points out that he has made no guarantee of safety. Where did the Advocate hear this? Both the Circle of Spite and the League of the Hidden Hand understood this to be true, but he does not know who told them. <br />
<br />
He believes that [[Bao]], Queen of Bandits, and the masters of the Shadow Castle are also attending the meeting. Perhaps others as well. <br />
<br />
Master Zhou looks at Lijuan's art - those armies up on the mountains might be country-level armies, or they might be bandit armies. Bandit armies aren't usually in direct open warfare with each other in the same way that country armies are, but in either case it would be bad to be the battleground. <br />
<br />
Just in case, Takanata checks if Lord Du is around. He is not. <br />
<br />
==Conversations==<br />
<br />
The group heads back in the direction that the bandit trail went - the tracks peter out in Zhen lands, so the party goes to talk to House Zhen. Cai Wen explains that they are on the trail of bandits who passed through this area, and they wish to ask some questions about whether House Zhen knows anything about this. <br />
<br />
The House Zhen guards are offended, and insist that if Cai Wen has any evidence of his accusations, he should take them to the Warlord. In either case,, begone! Cai Wen tries to clarify - he thinks House Zhen is being framed for banditry, but the best way to be sure is to speak to the higher-up lords of the house. <br />
<br />
A Zhen noblewoman (not the head of house, but a cousin) comes to speak to Cai Wen, but she is also not particularly helpful. She denies any involvement in banditry. Cai Wen agrees that House Zhen wasn't involved in the banditry. Well, then, why is Cai Wen here? So that he can discuss the banditry that House Zhen of course has nothing to do with. She is not persuaded of the usefulness of the conversation, and party members start muttering darkly to each other about how this particular House Zhen person is clearly an idiot. <br />
<br />
Cai Wen attempts to steer the conversation in more helpful directions - are there any enemies she can think of who might have wanted to frame House Zhen for banditry? She sneers - obviously House Sung and House Foon are both plausible contenders as House Zhen's enemies. Well, how about if the bandits came through Zhen lands and kept going - where would they end up? That would be Siew Keep. Well, her suggestions are of no use at all in the investigation, and the lady herself does not seem to be interested in actually contributing helpful clues, so the group takes their leave again, complaining about how House Zhen totally deserves to be framed for banditry. <br />
<br />
Still, they should go talk to Lord Siew to see if he noticed anything.<br />
<br />
{{QQ|Can we bring Zhuai?|Lijuan}}<br />
<br />
On reaching Siew Keep (or Foon Keep, depending), Yanyu heads off for the stable to find [[Fin]], the orphan who Xiao Fa told her to go investigate. <br />
<br />
Everyone else talks to Zhuai, who has several thoughts. <br />
<br />
* The prophetic art says there's parallels or mirrors or inversions or something, with the [[Caravans]] run. But what happened then? For example, how many caravans were attacked? No one really remembers, but Zhuai has read the logs, so he answers his own question: three. Maybe there were three attacks this time as well. Perhaps there are more clues at the other attack sites. <br />
* To put it politely, it is common knowledge in the near countries that any time the House of Exuberant Interference talks about bandits, they're about to do something crazy. So House Zhen is probably bracing for an invasion, and their rudeness is perhaps to be interpreted in this light. <br />
* Perhaps whoever put the party on this path is counting on the historical precedents. <br />
<br />
{{QQ|So the question you have to ask is: do you believe House Zhen is involved, and do you believe that the clues were clumsily dropped, or that someone pretended to drop clues clumsily in order that they be disregarded? Because if the perpetrators are that clumsy, we have one suspect pool. If they were '''pretending''' to be that clumsy, we have a different suspect pool.|Zhuai}}<br />
<br />
(This leads to some confusion, as "the perpetrators weren't trying to drop clues at all, they just thought 'we are going to burn your house down so that you don't tell anyone that we are going to House Zhen' was a normal thing to say" isn't actually one of the options, it's one level ''below'' clumsy. But Zhuai obviously doesn't think this is the case, and neither does anyone else.)<br />
<br />
Anyhow, Takanata thinks that this points to [[Tai Lung]], who is both a master and clumsy. <br />
<br />
Cai Wen asks the Advocate (who has been wandering along with the party, as they said they would escort him to the middle of the Tanzhe where the meeting is, and they still haven't gone there) if Tai Lung is coming. The Advocate is offended at the mere suggestion! Cai Wen dares speak that name before the Advocate of the Hidden Hand? Tai Lung would not dare attend! People suggest that Tai Lung doesn't seem to have issues with ''daring'' per se. <br />
<br />
Lijuan goes off to nap, to see if Kibo can ask the Spirit of the Forest where the bandits are. He is clearly alarmed at the idea of bothering the Forest, but she talks him into it. Then, she is woken up before he can return, by Yanyu and [[Testing,_One_Two_Three#Third_Day|the young orphan Fin]]. Fin really doesn't want to go home, but Yanyu has told him that he has to go back to visit. He wants to know if Lijuan says he has to. She says he does. <br />
<br />
==Clue-Wandering==<br />
<br />
Takanata leads the group back to the Tanzhe to wander about randomly (but auspiciously) to see if any other bandits are encountered. Sure enough, the party is surrounded by bandits, who demand that their leader be sent forth to surrender. Cai Wen gives a quick brush to his hair and heads out to be captured, trying out Lucky Chang's "hands of peace" to see if they work for him. They do, and [[Bao]], the bandit queen, takes Cai Wen off for more capturing. <br />
<br />
Everyone else wanders around further, until a House of Exuberant Interference messenger finds them - Corporal Rider, from the Glorious Brigade. Bandits took a caravan just outside of Buzhen Port. The party heads there, where they learn that the banditing is being investigated by the "Special Anti-Bandit Patrol", led by [[Johnny Tong]]. <br />
<br />
Well, that's very confusing. Johnny says he's representing the Shadow Castle at the Bandit Conference. The Shadow Castle turns out to have a lot of Bandit Reputation, but they're the anti-bandit bandits. Johnny plans to make some bargains with Bao - though he is cagy about what - and when they arrived they heard about the bandits and kind of leapt in on general principles. <br />
<br />
The evidence indicates that a small force of bandits sacked a caravan, and then hopped on a boat and sailed downriver. The boat was the River Gold, a trading barge owned by Clan Sonwu. <br />
<br />
Takanata asks the Jasmine if the River Gold is still afloat, and she takes him to the bank where it has gone to shore - it's empty with no bandits in it. Takanata builds a fire and throws straw in it, to summon everyone else. Kuan-Xi hops over first, and everyone else has to take a boat of their own. The tracks from the boat head inland, towards Sonwu lands, and then peter out. <br />
<br />
Kuan-Xi and Shen-Ji think that there was some sort of weirdness going on where the tracks end - whatever it is is fading now, and it definitely wasn't sorcerous. It's... sort of like worldwalking without leaving the world? <s>Xiao Fa</s> adds his expertise with chi to the analysis, and thinks that it sounds like a chi nexus sort of thing - like Master Changling's healing nexus, or the thing that the Obsidian Warlord did when he was waiting to show up where he was needed. <br />
<br />
Meanwhile, Bao "questions" Cai Wen, and they chat. Cai Wen was surprised to hear that the Tanzhe was holding a "bandit conference", and Bao says she was surprised too - she didn't think they had it in them. No, Cai Wen explains - he actually ''was'' surprised. They didn't know about it. So... Master Zhou just sprang it on them? No, Master Zhou was just as surprised. Someone seems to have set this up rather mysteriously. Bao is disappointed to hear that Master Zhou is reneging on his promises of safety - that is not going to be good for his reputation. <br />
<br />
Cai Wen expects that everything is going to turn into a big mess. Bao suspects that means Yoshi is behind it - he tends to like messes for bandits. Cai Wen is less sure - he meant the "massacre" sort of mess, and Yoshi doesn't like those so well. Oh, well, if he means massacres, that's probably the Circle of Spite. Cai Wen mentions the Advocate (or would-be Advocate) - Bao is not sure that's the sort of position you can just step into. Normally it involves dark powers. <br />
<br />
Anyhow, if Master Zhou isn't going to be guaranteeing her safety, then she's going to bring her guys to the meeting too, armed for bear. She agrees to not ''start'' trouble, but she doesn't want to finish last if trouble starts. She also thinks that nobody else is likely to show up unarmed once word gets out that Master Zhou has stopped guaranteeing anyone's safety. <br />
<br />
Cai Wen notes that this seems to be leading to a lose-lose situation, where Master Zhou gets all the blame for any massacres that happen, or gets all the blame for backing out of a deal. This seems a little subtle for Tai Lung, but maybe someone helped him. <br />
<br />
Over in the Sonwu lands, Takanata looks through Echoes of the Past where the trail fades out - and sees the Dark Pagoda - the bandits run into it, and then it vanishes back into the chi. <br />
<br />
Lijuan notes that Tai Lung's pagoda is cooler than Master Zhou's, and Master Zhou glares at her. <br />
<br />
The party heads back to Buzhen Port, and briefs Johnny Tong. He whistles - Tai Lung is going to be in trouble with Master Zhou. Or is freelance banditry is okay?<br />
<br />
{{QQ|Yoshi wouldn't approve.|Lijuan}}<br />
{{QQ|Well, not '''us'''.|Johnny Tong}}<br />
<br />
Yoshi has been spreading the word that Tai Lung is not a legitimate bandit - maybe he's going to show up just to cause trouble.<br />
<br />
{{QQ|Who '''called''' this meeting?|Master Zhou}}<br />
{{QQ|You did...?|Johnny Tong}}<br />
{{QQ|I need to change all the security protocols...|Master Zhou}}<br />
<br />
Johnny heard from Reiko, so like the Advocate, he doesn't know where the rumor started. Anyway, the thing that ''he'' wants to do here is talk to Bao about putting a moratorium on banditing refugees leaving war zones, and in exchange there might be a little less anti-bandit pressure from the Secret Swords. <br />
<br />
{{QQ|Let it be known throughout the land that any time the White Pagoda says it's doing something, it is lying!|Master Zhou}}<br />
<br />
Takanata summons a vision of Johnny's future but declines to discuss the specifics with anyone. He says it is interesting, but far enough in the future that Johnny is not obviously destined to be massacred immediately following. (It was something about an old Johnny with greying hair commanding armies from the walls of Shadow Castle.)<br />
<br />
Yanyu offers to bring her husband in order to help kill Tai Lung if he shows up. The prevalence of other bandits who shouldn't be killed might be an issue, but if Lijuan can keep Kawaii under control, Yanyu can probably keep the Son of the Moon on target. <br />
<br />
Then, a dramatic shadow falls across the dock, from a guy standing on top of a nearby hill, in front of the setting sun. It is, of course, [[Po]]. He leaps down to bow in front of Master Zhou, panting and out of breath.<br />
<br />
{{QQ|Master Zhou! Bandits! Attacking! A whole battalion of the house of the stabby guys!|Po}} <br />
<br />
When Po can catch his breath, he notes that he was surprised that Master Zhou didn't invite him earlier, but he only just heard, so he came as quickly as he could. <br />
<br />
{{QQ|Nobody ever thinks Quan Lo would set up bandit conferences...|Master Zhou}}<br />
<br />
Po leads the group back up to the no-longer-existing border with the Arcade, where there is a camp of the House of Gainful Protection. See - it's the bandits! But there were too many of them for Po to beat all by himself, so he went to find Master Zhou to get help.<br />
<br />
So... how did Po find these "bandits"? He says that he chased them from the caravan they attacked, and they led him here. When pressed, he admits that they ran faster than he did, and they had just gotten out of sight before the Gainful Protection camp. <br />
<br />
The bandits he was chasing definitely had kung fu, though. Fung doesn’t have that much kung fu. Wait, who is Fung? Fung is a bandit and enemy of travelers and merchants throughout Bear Mountain, and Po's arch nemesis. <br />
<br />
{{QQ|When did '''you''' get an arch nemesis?|Master Zhou}}<br />
{{QQ|...Recently.|Po}}<br />
{{Q|I have not authorized this arch-nemesis. Where is he now?}}<br />
{{Q|He's in jail! He was sulking that he wasn't invited to the bandit meeting you called.}}<br />
{{Q|By "jail" do you mean the basement of the White Pagoda?}}<br />
{{Q|No! I mean actual jail! Where he was actually banditing!}}<br />
<br />
Master Zhou is baffled by this idea that Po has been having plots, especially successful ones. <br />
<br />
Everyone else leaves Master Zhou to interrogate Po about whether Fung is a worthy arch-nemesis, and investigates the bandit tracks, which in fact trail off at a similar fading echo of a chi nexus. <br />
<br />
{{QQ|So... sending bandits towards people that we would normally blame for banditry is way subtler than Tai Lung usually is.|Takanata}}<br />
<br />
Takanata briefs Johnny Tong, Cai Wen briefs Bao, and Master Zhou talks to the Advocate. The whole briefing seems to be: "Tai Lung is up to something nefarious and is trying to get people to fight and is probably going to attack but you shouldn't bring bodyguards because then fighting is more likely to start". Everyone is pretty certain that if Tai Lung is going to attack them, they ''want'' bodyguards. Unless Master Zhou ''is'' guaranteeing their safety. Grudgingly, he admits that he is. So they agree to have their bodyguards on ambush-summonable hair triggers, but not actually ''at'' the meeting.<br />
<br />
==Bandit Meeting==<br />
<br />
Yin-Xiang arrives to help - he says he'll fight Tai Lung or Tai Lung's guys or anyone who threatens Yanyu or her child or her friends. That has a bit of mission creep, but it's probably okay. <br />
<br />
The three "bandit representatives" show up, and ask the party to vacate their meeting tent. Most of them do. Takanata wanders around with a bouquet of flowers, preventing any combat from breaking out, including when the Black Pagoda shows up and the black monks pile out. <br />
<br />
{{QQ|Tai Lung's gentlemen are here. Please do not panic.|Takanata, heading into the bandit tent}}<br />
<br />
Yanyu puts the blessing of the Phoenix on the combat, but it doesn't appear like anyone is really able to initiate combat. Master Zhou, thwarted, goes around to the back of the pagoda to punch it, debuting his Strike of the Bear to do significant structural damage and put a hole in the wall. <br />
<br />
{{Q|Tai Lung, this abomination will not stand!}}<br />
<br />
Since they can't start combat either, but causing trouble for buildings is okay, the black monks start pouring suspicious liquid on the outside of the meeting tent. Master Zhou shouts at Lijuan to go outside of Takanata's range to shoot them all, but she doesn't think starting the massacre herself is something Yoshi would approve of. <br />
<br />
{{QQ|Followers of Tai Lung, you can feel the peace that Master Zhou has brought to this place. Go back into your pagoda and begone!|Takanata}}<br />
<br />
Kuan-Xi purifies water on the liquid on the tent, and manages to nullify some of it, but much of the rest of the tent starts to catch fire. Bao starts to talk about summoning her guys, but Cai Wen gets her to calm down again. <br />
<br />
The monks start fleeting back into the Dark Pagoda as Master Zhou keeps punching holes in its structural integrity. Kuan-Xi puts the rest of the fire on the tent out, and Yanyu calls down Wrath of the Phoenix on the pagoda, which starts to burn merrily. The doors to the pagoda slam shut, but Shen-Ji destroys them with his Disintegrate Wood spell. Tai Lung, inside the pagoda, glares through the doorway at Shen-Ji, but does not have the spare action to slay him, and instead holds up a black stone key to get the pagoda to start vanishing while it still can. <br />
<br />
Takanata throws the meeting tent flap open to point out Tai Lung, in case any of the bandits at the meeting were unclear on who was behind things at this point. The Black Pagoda finishes vanishing, and the bandits discuss the idea that Tai Lung be censured. <br />
<br />
As a favor for having done all this saving, the bandits are willing to leave the Tanzhe bandit-free (or, at least free from the banditry of the Circle of Spite, the Hidden Hand, the Bandit Queen, and the Secret Swords (who are not actually bandits)) for the next while. <br />
<br />
Master Zhou thinks about the effect he was encountering where the pagoda was resisting his strikes - he thinks the chi effect of the Dark Pagoda's senchi chamber is anti-Master-Zhou. So the damage he was causing was being backfilled by the senchi chamber's chi, Doors are repairable and fire can be put out, but the damage Master Zhou was doing was more serious; so the senchi chamber ameliorated it to keep the pagoda from collapsing, but the senchi chamber is probably underpowered now, and will be for a while. <br />
<br />
The key that let Tai Lung "steer" the pagoda seems likely to have been the work of the Alchemist - it doesn't power the chi nexus itself, but it does direct it. <br />
<br />
The bandits leave, bowing to Master Zhou and noting that they will recommend him to their friends for any future bandit conference needs. <br />
<br />
Takanata writes a bardic satire about Tai Lung trying to make an attack but being driven off by a bunch of flowers and people punching his building. <br />
<br />

<hr />
<div>The Bureaucrat is one of the Marked, the Eight Legs of Aku, as seen in the [[Monarch Butterfly#Elemental Amusement|world above]].<br />
<br />
He's the Lord Mayor of the Dragon's throne. He's also a eunuch.<br />
<br />
<hr><br />
<br />
In [[Testing,_One_Two_Three]], Xiao Fa agreed with Lucky Chang that we would collaborate to take down the Bureaucrat during Book Ten. We should think about that.<br />
<br />
Some assets:<br />
* The [[Illumineaucracy]] mechanic is the Mayor's Game; this can probably be either a distraction or a line of attack.<br />
* Some people we know who are either powerful bureaucrats or have significant bureaucracy skill/contacts:<br />
** Inspector Fu<br />
** River Ford / Hadisen<br />
** Fen-xi<br />
** Ando<br />
* When the Jade Taiga Renaming Ritual goes off, since it involves a meeting of the Regency Council (which is the Bureaucrat's job to manage for the Marked, so we hear), that may be a line of attack.<br />
<br />
<br />
<hr><br />
<br />
Takanata asks: Do we know who Hadisen was working on the Imperial Line mechanic for? Do we know who the bureaucrat who's after River Ford is? Those might both be useful pieces of information if we want to use Hadisen against the Bureaucrat.<br />

}}<br />
<br />
==Introduction==<br />
<br />
People are in the military headquarters of the Tanzhe one evening, when the butler lets the group know that a messenger has arrived to inform Cai Wen that he has a meeting with the Lord of Benevolent Oversight in the morning. <br />
<br />
Willow also shows up, to make "observations and impressions of Xiao Fa", on behalf of the King of the Precincts. She notes that tomorrow and the two days after that are likely to be Full Mechanic days, so everyone gets a good night of sleep, and resets their Exhaustion Points to zero. <br />
<br />
==First Day==<br />
<br />
In the morning, Xiao Fa goes to meditate, and finds the [[Blue Dragon]] already there, meditating. The Blue Dragon bows - he is here on behalf of the Lord Dragon, and the time has come for Him to test His instruments. For various reasons, Xiao Fa shall be tested first. Three messengers will be sent to conduct the tests, and the Blue Dragon is the first: the test of Yin. The Blue Dragon has prepared a smooth stretch of sand, and hands Xiao Fa a stick to draw prophetic art on the sand. <br />
<br />
(Xiao Fa asks Dragon if this is for real, and receives a "Good luck, my child" in response. Guess so.)<br />
<br />
Willow provides a bit more of a briefing to Xiao Fa - she is a Watcher, not a Tester. There are three days, and each day will have a tester from each of three sets of tests (one set from Phoenix, one from the Great Houses, and one from Dragon), and a watcher. Willow notes that Cai Wen is providing the watchers, so he probably shouldn't try to keep her here beyond Day One. <br />
<br />
Other guests arrive - an emissary from the House of Resplendent Decoration, and [[Eto Tansho]]. Yanyu meets with the emissary, while Min Feng and Kuan-Xi talk to Tansho and Wei Han prowls around looking for uninvited guests. <br />
<br />
Resplendent Decoration's emissary apologizes for the delay in his arrival, but lets Yanyu know that Lord [[Myo]] is even now traveling here to take tea with Xiao Fa of the House of Quiet Concordance, to discuss matters of great import in a setting appropriate to the gravity of the situation. He will be here in late afternoon, and expects to have a tea "appropriate to he who would be governor". <br />
<br />
Tansho is here on a Grave and Terrible Mission: Lady Phoenix has decreed that it is time to test... him... because of her. She is in charge of the Test of Power, but it has not been made clear to her what the details are, and she had to rush to get here in time - perhaps they should all use wands and blast Xiao Fa and see if he has the power to withstand the magic? Min Feng thinks that underspecified tests are unfortunate, and they should research what it should be before doing anything hasty.<br />
<br />
Cai Wen borrows Kuan-Xi's carriage to reach the House of Benevolent Oversight, where the King praises Exuberant Interference cleverness in seeking to appoint a governor from a different house (though he does know about their close ties with Xiao Fa), and that on the Random House Table, the third house to do the testing was chosen to be the House of Exuberant Interference. So Cai Wen should design a test, but not let Xiao Fa know what it is until the third day, and he should also not assist Xiao Fa in passing the test. <br />
<br />
Yanyu starts event planning for the tea. Right now the military HQ has all the ambience of a picnic table in the middle of a field, which is entirely insufficient. Kuan-Xi scouts out venues in nearby towns, but they decide on having a fancy silk tent instead, and instantiate [[Bian Mei-Ling]] to help with that. Wei Han summons reinforcements for an honor guard and spends a karma to keep them for the rest of the run, but they should really have livery for Quiet Concordance instead of the Dragon Army. <br />
<br />
Xiao Fa finishes his art. The Blue Dragon deducts a few points for declarative words, but it seems to pass. <br />
<br />
<br />
<br />
[[File:Hxf-art.png|300px]]<br />
<br />
Yanyu heads off to get tea from [[Madame Tealeaf]] - she speaks the gesture-language, so she can explain clearly what she wants. Madame Tealeaf sells her some grand and dignified tea, but in order to succeed, the person brewing the tea must get as many successes in Tea Ceremonies or other tea preparation skills as the drinker has status. Yanyu buys enough tea for twelve cups, so they can practice a bit. (She guesses that Myo has about twelve status, though he might have clothes of extra status, especially since he's from Resplendent Decoration.)<br />
<br />
Bian Mei-Ling provides silk in sage and grey colors, both for the new tea tent and the honor guard livery, and Kuan-Xi and Mei-Ling go to the [[Homeworking_the_Steppes#Funeral|uniform tailor]] that the party recently met in the Steppes. After an insane tip, she calls all her workers in, cancels their breaks, and generates a speedy order of silk accented uniforms for the honor guard.<br />
<br />
About the Test of Power - nobody recalls any official Phoenix Tests of the Dragon Emperor that can be cited here, so they settle on blasting Xiao Fa with magic now that Kuan-Xi is out of the way. Yanyu hits Xiao Fa with Wrath of the Phoenix, but he sweeps it into the ground. Tansho's firebolt (from a wand of firebolts borrowed from the party) hits him, and he starts draining her tao. Min Feng breaks a phoenix feather at him, and Xiao Fa blocks that with a chi barrier. Yanyu has to fall back to normal arrows, and Min Feng to flaming arrows, but these are a little less scary, and Xiao Fa alternates between dodging and taking the damage. The last firebolt, Xiao Fa redirects back at Tansho. The turn over, Tansho declares the test a success, and that it was awesome (though painful for her). Xiao Fa heals her up again. <br />
<br />
Cai Wen heads off to find the people he needs for his test on Day Three. <br />
<br />
Lord Myo arrives, and tea is served. Myo is indeed impressed at the dignity and ambience of the tea tent, and the tea. However, when Liet storms in (leaving the honor guard on the ground outside), some of the weighty discussion degenerates into squabbling. The prophecy of three tea cups is fulfilled, and Myo seems satisfied with the test. <br />
<br />
The group breaks for dinner, and does not have to spend any late night time executing plans, so everyone gets a good night's sleep again. <br />
<br />
==Second Day==<br />
<br />
In the morning, there are more visitors. An emissary from the House of Gainful Protection, [[Minoru Tama]] and a tall man dressed in blue and yellow with a trident.<br />
<br />
{{QQ|God, it's him '''again'''.|Xiao Fa}}<br />
<br />
Also, [[Zhenzhen]] has arrived, as a watcher on behalf of the First Servant of the Steppes.<br />
<br />
Yanyu and Wei Han meet with the House of Gainful Protection messenger. She is there to let them know, just as a courtesy, that there has been an error - one of their emergency action teams has been dispatched to Tiger's Landing, with mistaken orders that the mayor and town council are possessed by demons and should be executed. Unfortunately, the orders were from a protocols test, so the authentication was legitimate, and even more unfortunately, the original code books have been lost, so the orders can't be countermanded. Anyhow, this is just to let them know, as a courtesy. <br />
<br />
Min Feng chats with Tamu - she will be administering the Test of Life, and it is very very very important that Xiao Fa pass this. Min Feng suspects that this will be a healing test, and Xiao Fa will be all over it, so she reassures Tamu that it will all be fine. <br />
<br />
Kuan-Xi goes to talk to the guy with the trident - as Xiao Fa expects, it is the "Warden of the Southern Seas" (one of [[Lucky Chang]]'s titles). He greets Kuan-Xi formally (and recognizes her as the Princess of the Northern Seas) and says he is here to administer the test of Yang on behalf of Lord Dragon: a small group of Southern pirates has been allowed past the Southern border, and is encamped on the coast of the Southern Arcade. It would be appropriate if they were removed from the Empire before dawn. <br />
<br />
Xiao Fa goes to talk to Minoru Tama. Like Tansho, she has come on behalf of the Lady of Fire, in order to test Xiao Fa. Is he worthy, or does he decline the test? He states himself worthy. Tama takes a vial from her pocket, declares it to be the Terrible Oil of Wasting Death, and suddenly drinks it. Well, then. Xiao Fa pats her down for an antidote, which she finds a bit rude, but she does not have one. He thinks about how to proceed - a simple healing roll will not do, as the Terrible Oil requires a Great Cure such as the Tincture of Pure Respite. <br />
<br />
The most important thing to worry about (unless you're Tama) is the upcoming massacre in Tiger's Landing. Shanxi says that this sort of strike team would generally be five people (compared to the four person Tinker/Tailor/Soldier/Spy teams favored by the Dragon Army and the Beautiful Spy Service). Instead of a Tinker, they have a second Soldier and a talker. <br />
<br />
One potential solution is to disguise five of the party as the Mayor and the Town Council, and stash the actual politicians in the carriage. First, though, Xiao Fa makes sure that they aren't ''actually'' possessed by demons (they aren't). Wei Han explains to them that the House of Gainful Protection has accidentally sent assassins - the Mayor and company would definitely like to be protected from that, and are willing to go with the disguises plan. <br />
<br />
Places are swapped, and the "town council" has lunch, and announces that their normal Second Afternoon meeting will be held in First Afternoon instead. Unfortunately, the Gainful Protection surveillance has already determined that the meeting is in Second Afternoon, so First Afternoon is pretty boring. The group starts drawing demonic sigils on the floor to try to lure out any assassins, but to no avail until Second Afternoon. <br />
<br />
Second Afternoon opens with a speed roll, and combat is on! One of the assassins appears harmless (and un-attackable), but then has a deadly backstab when someone give up and turns their back on him. Kasumi grabs noses, and Yanyu sets someone on fire - between that and the drawings on the floor, it seems pretty clear that the rumors of demonic possession are well grounded. <br />
<br />
{{QQ|I know what you think you're doing here, and your organization has sent you here wrongfully. Cease this aggression and we can talk about this sensibly. There are no demons here.|Xiao Fa, rather unconvincingly}}<br />
<br />
After a bunch of chopping, Xiao Fa identifies that two of the Gainful Protection guys are only standing at this point due to their combat drugs. They manage to coordinate a strike on Wei Han, and then Kasumi backstabs one of them - she's the only one doing major fatal damage, and he would be dead except that Xiao Fa stabilizes him in the last speed call of the combat, before his extra hit points wear off. <br />
<br />
The unconscious strike team is shipped home, courtesy of the House of Beneficent Travel, and the party has dinner with the Mayor and Town Council. (Kuan-Xi makes sure the floor is clean of demonic sigils again). <br />
<br />
Tama is somewhat concerned about the lack of progress in the Test of Life, but Kasumi points out that Xiao Fa will probably save her even if he fails the test by not curing her before dawn. That's reassuring. However, since Xiao Fa does actually want to pass the test, Kuan-Xi and Cai Wen, using the carriage, go to negotiate with [[Master Hsi]] in Nine Terraces. It is rather late at night, but they convince [[Reishi]] that it is an emergency, and he goes to wake Master Hsi. <br />
<br />
Master Hsi does in fact have one Tincture on hand, but it is his emergency vial - it will take weeks to replace it, so he is loth to be rid of it if it is not a true emergency. Kuan-Xi assures him that it is a true emergency. Master Hsi does not recall Kuan-Xi, but he has met Cai Wen, and notes that last time, he was paid with one of the great treasures of the Butterfly Kingdom. What does Cai Wen offer this time? Kuan-Xi offers him a water portal to a location of his choice. Well, that is tempting. He suggests the Garden of Benevolent Tranquility. That might be hard to arrange, but a counteroffer of somewhere else in Jade, Ivory, or Obsidian, as well as a Jade Key, is accepted. <br />
<br />
As the water gate cannot be constructed immediately, Master Hsi wishes a guarantee that the promised payment will be made. Who serves as the guarantor? That would be Lo Xiao Fa. Except that Lo Xiao Fa is not here, so that is not so useful. Kuan-Xi will swear on his behalf, so he gives her a potion of The Bargain Sealed, which she must promise to have Xiao Fa drink to agree to the bargain, and she must drink another such potion herself in order to seal that promise. <br />
<br />
Cai Wen finds the concept of this new potion quite intriguing, and asks about it. Master Hsi says it can be made for two tael and a drop of Cai Wen's blood (the potion is specific for the person whose blood is in it). He will think about that. <br />
<br />
The rest of the group heads off to fight pirates, and Yanyu brings along the Son of the Moon; with the particularly high density of fighters, they best the pirates without very much difficulty. The main loot of interest is a hammer dedicated to Kali, which is empowered to do extra damage against "holy" and other spiritual items, and a potion of Yama, which, when drunk, prevents death for twelve hours. <br />
<br />
The party regroups back in the Tanzhe; Kuan-Xi makes Xiao Fa drink his potion, and Tama is cured with the Tincture of Pure Respite. Then everyone falls into bed.<br />
<br />
==Third Day==<br />
<br />
On the exhaustion meter, Kuan-Xi and Cai Wen are down a die for their late night excursions, while everyone else is down two for the even later night pirate fight.<br />
<br />
Another set of guests show up. [[Shidehara Setsuko]] says that Xiao Fa has until dawn tomorrow to pass the Test of Passion for the Phoenix. Everyone looks at Xiao Fa and Min Feng and thinks awkward thoughts, but Setsuko notes that things like "rouse the people of a town to march to war" also counts. <br />
<br />
Cai Wen briefs Yanyu that some petitioners will show up asking for justice from the Governor, and will need to be responded to, as the test for the House of Exuberant Interference. <br />
<br />
[[Hideko Koiso]] arrives, as a watcher on behalf of the Butterfly Meadows. <br />
<br />
And Lucky Chang (with the Hands of Peace up) is outside the gates and wants to talk to Xiao Fa. (Cai Wen reminds Min Feng to not accidentally marry any of the Blue Dragon, the Warden of the Southern Seas, or Lucky Chang). Lucky Chang is here to administer the Test of Chi - to negotiate with Xiao Fa over various items of contention. He has scheduled their negotiation for First Afternoon, so that everyone can come up with ways to buff Xiao Fa against him in the meantime. <br />
<br />
The petitioners arrive! <br />
<br />
The first petition is a woman, accompanied by a guy in a large cloak. She introduces herself as Gong Yan, a woman of the Tanzhe. Her lover, Dae Yeh, was a Plains soldier. When the Plains was withdrawing its troops, Yeh stayed to protect her from the invaders. He didn't attack them, he simply tried to block them from invading her house, and they killed him. The cloaked guy uncloaks himself - it is the [[Exuberant_Dogoodery#Tiger.27s_Landing|annoying bard]] from Tiger's Landing. He sings a mocking song about the aggressive cruelty of the invaders. <br />
<br />
{{QQ|Is this guy with you?|Xiao Fa, disbelieving}}<br />
{{QQ|He was assigned as my advocate before your court, my lord.|Gong Yan}}<br />
<br />
Xiao Fa thinks about this, and asks her more questions (no, they weren't married. They had been together for about four months. She buried him and burned money for him with the priests, but the funeral was not expensive. No, he did not change his uniform - though she protests that this would have been punished differently. No, the soldiers did not ''say'' that they were going to loot her house or anything else, they ''said'' they were looking for enemy soldiers, but she knows how invasions go...) <br />
<br />
Meanwhile, Min Feng spots that one of the Exuberant Interference guards is wearing what seems like an invisible cloak. Kuan-Xi hits him with "Appropriately Dressed", and now he's wearing a grey cloak with Lucky Chang's "pair of dice" insignia. Wei Han escorts him into another tent to intimidate. The guy admits to watching things on behalf of Chang but refuses to confess to anything more nefarious. <br />
<br />
Xiao Fa rules that he cannot specifically fault the action of the soldiers in this case. They might have been overzealous, but they were doing what they were supposed to be doing. He is not blind to her loss, and he apologizes, but an apology is all she gets. (Yanyu suggests having a matchmaker find a new boyfriend for her, but Xiao Fa does not think that will help matters.)<br />
<br />
Min Feng spots a magpie paying attention to the proceedings, but Ezokin is off in the northern Arcade, so it's a little unclear what's going on. Kuan-Xi notes that the magpie is covered in money-magic, so it's clearly Ezokin's familiar, but without Ezokin it doesn't make much sense. Min Feng has her phoenix chase the magpie away, which both entertains and disrupts the court proceedings for a bit. <br />
<br />
The next petitioners are Hsu Lin-wei and Hsu On, who claim somewhat incoherently that their nephew, Fin, was kidnapped by a Forest lord who is keeping the kid in the dog kennels and is probably going to do further horrible things to him like hunt him like a dog! You can never trust Forest lords! Some lady convinced him to run away by bribing him with pork buns. The annoying bard is also accompanying them, and plays a mocking tune about how the government hates it when he tells them the truth. Xiao Fa tries to pry some more details out of the couple - the nephew had only recently come to stay with them, after his mother was killed in the invasion, but after the previous case, they're not asking for justice for that. They just want their nephew unkidnapped from the evil Lord Siew. How do they know where he is? He wrote them a letter saying. But they were angry so they burned it. This seems a little suspicious. They also didn't bring any documentation proving that they were related to Fin, or his mother. Nobody told them to... <br />
<br />
Various suggestions are made - maybe they could visit their nephew and see how he's doing? They don't trust Evil Forest Lords enough to go visit them. Well, what if he likes it there? They are dubious. Can you just steal people's kids, er, nephews like that, even if they like being stolen? <br />
<br />
Xiao Fa tells them to go back to their town and he will begin an investigation into how the boy is doing, and he tells Yanyu to go and check. <br />
<br />
The third petitioner sees which way the wind is blowing with this "petition the Governor but get told that it's probably all okay while everyone glares at you for having the annoying bard" plot, and flees without raising his petition. <br />
<br />
After lunch, Lucky Chang returns (again with the Hands of Peace), and says that he is here for Xiao Fa's test of Chi - a negotiation with him. Xiao Fa has carefully dressed in his high-status clothes, and Kuan-Xi tweaks her Phoenix shtick to get him to roll for 5s, and Yanyu gives him a makeover to double his Charisma, so he is loaded for bear against the terrifying Chang. <br />
<br />
Lucky Chang opens with the statement that this book, or perhaps the next, is when the knives are going to really come out.<br />
<br />
{{Q|Those of us on Team Dragon should not be at each other's throats when the spiders come for us. So, as an opening proposition, I offer a mutual peace agreement for the duration of the battle with Spider.}}<br />
<br />
Wei Han drags in the guy in the cloak as evidence of Chang's perfidy. Chang gives a little salute - touche and well done. But what's with the cloak? Do they have enough prisoners that they have to costume them like this to tell them apart? He doesn't seem very ashamed of having been spying on them, as no truce has started yet. And surely no one is pretending that Xiao Fa doesn't have spies on his side, though Chang didn't think to bring any to the meeting. <br />
<br />
Xiao Fa isn't keen on a general cease fire, as it seems unlikely that he and Chang will not be on opposite sides of the eventual battle for the Jade Throne. Well... does he have a counter offer? Xiao Fa suggests that they join forces. <br />
<br />
{{QQ|What do you envision as the endgame of this? Lord Xiao Fa, Dragon Chancellor?|Lucky Chang}}<br />
{{QQ|I was thinking Emperor Xiao Fa and Lord Wuyong, with your name in the Imperial Rolls.|Xiao Fa}}<br />
{{QQ|My name is already in the Imperial Rolls - as is yours, I know, more recently.|Lucky Chang}}<br />
<br />
But Lucky Chang wasn't really expecting Xiao Fa to play for second, and he doesn't think Xiao Fa expects him to either. So what else is on the table? <br />
<br />
{{QQ|Perhaps a lesser matter - are you interested in the red jade key?|Lucky Chang}}<br />
In exchange for the key, Xiao Fa is willing to offer that his team stops trying to kill Lucky Chang. Hmm, he was hoping for more than just nonaggression. Perhaps he can trade the key for the associated shticks? <br />
<br />
Xiao Fa frowns - he's really not willing to give up that much for Chang's peace of mind. Chang laughs - it's not just his peace of mind they're talking about. Min Feng has shticks in "I'm the consort", but that is different than actually ''being'' the Imperial Consort. Lucky Chang has a bunch of "I'm the Emperor" shticks, which is also different than actually ''being'' the Emperor. If he's the Emperor, and he gives the red jade key to his choice of bride, that will make it difficult for Min Feng to actually ''be'' consort - and perhaps she would not wish to be. The point being, the key would be useful to Team Xiao Fa, even if that team has Min Feng on it already, and the key is still useful to Team Lucky Chang, even without Min Feng. <br />
<br />
Lucky Chang thinks some more. If Xiao Fa doesn't want to start with a truce, and they can't agree on the sort of allies they can be, how about enemies? <br />
<br />
{{QQ|The Marked are coming for us - I take care of two and you take care of two?|Lucky Chang}}<br />
<br />
Hmm. Dead Marked can be replaced, but defeated Marked might be better. Chang allows as that's just as good. <br />
<br />
Xiao Fa confers with Cai Wen. Cai Wen says that he can't go along with a permanent alliance with Lucky Chang - he owes vengeance on behalf of others, and they won't believe that he's sincere, nor will Cai Wen feel right abandoning his vendetta entirely. But working together in the short term is something he can live with. <br />
<br />
The party also doesn't want the Butterfly Prince on the list to kill. Chang admits that he was considering the Prince one of the easier targets. <br />
<br />
{{QQ|Honestly, I think both the Prince and Tai Lung are liabilities for the Marked rather than assets.|Cai Wen}}<br />
<br />
After some further bickering, the four targets that are deemed acceptable (and possible) are the Obsidian Warlord, the Bureaucrat, Tai Lung, and the New Guy. The party already has some ideas for the Obsidian Warlord, and Tai Lung is likely to cross Master Zhou eventually, so Xiao Fa and Lucky Chang agree to team up to take out the Bureaucrat. They'll both think about plans, and then come back to work out the final arrangements, and there will be a cease-fire in the meantime. <br />
<br />
Wei Han brings up the Problem of Spies again. Will Lucky Chang stop spying on the party? He shrugs - will the party stop spying on him? Such as sending guys around to find out if he's in town working on a particular plot? Oh. Well, okay, maybe some reasonable spying is allowed. And if the other side's spies are caught, they'll be returned to sender rather than killed. Chang thinks that sounds reasonable. <br />
<br />
So: '''No doing damage to each other intentionally (except in self-defense), or to each other's guys because they're the other team. Reasonable spying is allowed.'''<br />
<br />
The question is raised as to whether "damage" should be defined more clearly, but everyone thinks that if you have to define it very carefully then it's not as strong an agreement, and Lucky Chang is probably better at loopholes anyway. <br />
<br />
Chang says that they can discuss the consort issue later, but the Test of Chi has been passed. Then, he takes his leave. <br />
<br />
Finally, Xiao Fa gives a speech to the Tanzhe militia, rousing them to demand that Xiao Fa be appointed governor. With a lot of buffing and stat cap breaking, he gets thirty-six succcesses, which passes the Test of Passion, and now that +1 MIL may be specifically loyal to Xiao Fa rather than the House of Exuberant Interference.<br />

==A Pretext is Sought==<br />
<br />
Takanata would really like to go to the Strand. But it would be good to have some sort of a plot to investigate when he gets there. So... Xian is an orphan, raised by the Gentle Admonishers of Disquiet? She admits that's true. Does she want to find her real family? Xian says that the Gentle Admonishers ''are'' her family. Doesn't Takanata remember that all those monks that they've run into are her ''sisters''? Well, yes, but doesn't she want to know who her parents are? Not really. Takanata is appalled - who does she make offerings to? Xian shrugs. There's a shrine at the pagoda for sisters who have gone to the World Beyond, though it's not an ''ancestor'' shrine per se. She really has no interest in tracking down her previous relatives, though - she knows who her real family is and where they live, and it's the Pagoda. <br />
<br />
Well, all right. How about finding the house that Shuyan had a vision about? Once, at the Temple of the Invisible Wind, Shuyan asked Crane how to gather information in the Strand without getting into trouble, and Crane showed her a house in the swamp, overgrown by jungle and vines. That could be a thing that they could look for! <br />
<br />
Xian checks Shuyan's I Ching. Long ago, when Takanata read it, it was:<br />
<br />
{{boxed|<br />
For every ten, only one has potential<br><br />
For every ten of those, only one has motive<br><br />
For every ten of those, only one finds the right place<br><br />
One in ten is but the first step}}<br />
<br />
The new I Ching:<br />
<br />
{{boxed|<br />
Ten steps does not make a journey,<br><br />
Ten Li is a journey that can return home.<br><br />
Ten years is a journey that can never be undone.<br><br />
But all journeys start with ten steps.}}<br />
<br />
Shuyan recaps her parents' story: her mother ran away from home and fell in with a gang; when the gang was arrested, the magistrate adopted her and she and the magistrate's son were eventually married. Then Shuyan's father died, and Shuyan's mother left to join the circus. <br />
So the house in the Strand is probably the house that Shuyan's mom ran away from, but the circus only knew her as Wu Kyoko, not her maiden name, or where she was born. However, Shuyan's ''dad's'' parents might know more. They live now in Peaceful Composition, in the Taiga.<br />
<br />
==Magistrate Wu==<br />
<br />
The group heads to Peaceful Composition, and knocks on the Wus' door. <br />
<br />
Grandfather Wu is happy to see Shuyan again, and bows respectfully to Lord Takanata (who he has met once before). Shuyan explains about the vision she had, and that she needs more details about where her mom was from. Magistrate Wu supposes she is old enough to know the more sordid details, and explains about the running-away-from-home and bad company. Shuyan admits that she already knew that, but wanted to know if Mom ever said exactly where she ran away ''from''. He thinks she was born southwest of Nine Terraces, not all the way to the mountains or the Wall, but in that corner of the country. But she never mentioned a town. <br />
<br />
He can give a few more details about the "bad company," though. She was in the Corundum Clan, the worst of the Nine Terraces gangs at that time, and when they started peddling both their wares and their problems across the border, the King of the Taiga and the Queen of the Strand created a fairly unique task force to deal with the problem. Magistrate Wu was one of the Taiga authorities involved, but Kyoko was young enough and seemed to have chance of redemption, so he argued to have her banished from the Strand and he took responsibility for her, (For those interested in the calendar, Kyoko was adopted by the Wus in the second year of the Fox since the crowning of the Malachite Queen). <br />
<br />
Takanata suggests that they go and talk to the Corundum Clan for more details. Magistrate Wu hopes they're not still an active concern, but some might be out of prison by now. Well, in that case, they can go and talk to Meng Ao, which is always the thing to do when one has other plots in the Strand that one is avoiding.<br />
<br />
==Meng Ao==<br />
<br />
The group takes their leave of the Wus, and head to the Strand. They pay a call on Meng Ao, and Takanata explains that they seek to investigate something that happened some time ago, and but he does not know how safe it is to do so. The initial incident is a set of trials, which would presumably be public record...? And the final goal is the house that Shuyan came from. <br />
<br />
Meng Ao reads Shuyan's fortune, and is intrigued by what he sees. It is as if the house is hidden. But it's not ''well'' hidden - it just can't be found unless Shuyan, or one other, is present. <br />
<br />
As for the records of the trials - were those on trial foreigners? No, it was the Corundum Clan. Since they were locals, he suggests that they start at the Hall of Poetic Justice. (If Takanata is incorrect and those on trial were foreigners, he would need to try the Hall of Retributive Justice). <br />
<br />
Meng Ao says that Takanata and his friends have been enough assistance to him in the past that no debt attaches for any of what he has told them.<br />
<br />
==Madame Tsen==<br />
<br />
Next stop is the Jasmine Dragon tea house in Nine Terraces, where Madame Tsen reads tea leaves. Shuyan asks if she can read her ''past'' instead, but she admits that "from" is more difficult than "will be." Well, perhaps the question is where she should go? Shuyan drinks the tea, and Madame Tsen peers into its depths and frowns.<br />
<br />
{{QQ|What '''have''' you been up to?|Madame Tsen}}<br />
{{QQ|I, um, things?|Shuyan}}<br />
{{QQ|Well. I see that you should go to the Hall of Poetic Justice.|Madame Tsen}}<br />
{{QQ|We were already just going there to look up records.|Xian}}<br />
{{QQ|Of course you were.|Madame Tsen}}<br />
<br />
Takanata wonders - as someone who finds out secrets on a regular basis - "how is that okay?" Madame Tsen notes that there is a difference between ''finding'' out secrets and ''searching'' out secrets, While she sees things in the leaves, she does not ask others for what is not theirs to tell. <br />
<br />
{{QQ|It's fine to look around, but not to take what is not yours?|Takanata}}<br />
{{QQ|Certainly not.|Madame Tsen}}<br />
<br />
She also points out that when you get a secret that ''is'' theirs to give, that you give proper value for it. <br />
<br />
{{Q|It is hard to distinguish between taking what is not yours, and not paying for what you have taken.}}<br />
<br />
Xian, who is also a Strand native, thinks that secrets are things ''people'' have. If you dig up treasure that no one knows about, for example, you haven't found out a ''secret'', you've found a ''treasure.''<br />
<br />
==Corundum Clan==<br />
<br />
To the Hall of Poetic Justice!<br />
<br />
Shuyan tries to ask for the records of the Corundum Clan trials, but with 0 successes on a status roll, she is not very successful. Shuyan keeps looking over her shoulder at Takanata, and then looks strikingly innocent, so the clerk takes pity on her and takes her down the hall where he tells her that she'll be safe, and tries to find out what the foreign lord tried to put her up to. Shuyan has to go to some effort to keep Takanata from being blamed for ''something'', but finally manages to convey that she's looking for the records on her mother, who was in the Corundum Clan. <br />
<br />
The clerk goes through the records, and finds that Shuyan's mother was convicted on the testimony of Hu Yuxin of the House of Amber, then in the Corundum Clan, whose testimony also incriminated himself. As a minor noble, he was released after several years back to the custody of House Amber, so to contact him, she would need to talk to the Amber Speaker. Shuyan asks hesitantly where she might find the Amber Speaker? The clerk says the Speaker would be at the palace, attending Her Majesty. He looks dubious that Shuyan doesn't know any of this, but she admits she grew up in the Taiga. The clerk notes that if she knew what house her mother was in, she could work that way, but as she doesn't, perhaps going through House Amber is the way to go. He wishes her well in finding her mother and reclaiming her birthright.<br />
<br />
Apparently in the Strand, the nobles are known to be nobles, but they aren't specifically known as members of particular houses. The Speakers know the rolls of their own houses, and act as the representatives of the house, and speak for it to the Viridian Queen. (The Speaker of House Amber is not the ''leader'' of House Amber, just the spokesperson.)<br />
<br />
The Viridian Queen and the Malachite House are the same house, but not the same ''family''. <br />
<br />
{{QQ|Is there some sort of etiquette for talking to a Speaker?|Shuyan}}<br />
{{QQ|Yes.|Xian}}<br />
<br />
Well, in talking to a Speaker, is it cheaper to ask for them to find out the information and come back, or to ask to talk to the person in question? The former is more polite, but it isn't cheaper. <br />
<br />
Xian suggests that Shuyan offer some of her own secrets in return. In particular, telling the story of her mother after leaving the Strand, in exchange for her story before, might be aesthetic. <br />
<br />
==Amber Speaker==<br />
<br />
Shuyan goes to the Viridian Court and asks for an audience with the Amber Speaker, to try to find out about her family. Unfortunately, this is another status roll, which Shuyan is no good at, so the guard returns with with an apology that the Amber Speaker does not think she will have information to assist Shuyan. (Takanata translates: someone with no politics and no status asked for an audience with an important person, and was politely declined). <br />
<br />
Takanata, whose status continues to be astronomical, takes a stab at it, more elliptically. He tells the guard that some years ago, he was at a party in the palace, in a garden with lovely statues. He was wondering if it would be possible to see those statues again. Ah, for Lord Takanata, they can accommodate that request, and he and his entourage are welcome. A majordomo is summoned to escort him around the statuary garden. (The dedication plates have all been restored to shiny and new, and have no old country-names on them.)<br />
<br />
Takanata happily chats with the majordomo, who is not an expert in art in general, but is an expert in these particular pieces. <br />
<br />
After dropping a number of discreet hints, Takanata manages to get the various pages to try to separate the party members and secret escort Shuyan to the Amber Speaker. He himself is escorted to a nice tea room to contemplate existence while he waits patiently for inspiration.<br />
Shuyan and Xian are looking at the wall of flowers; a page offers Xian some various delicacies to sample, and when she looks up, Shuyan is gone. <br />
<br />
Shuyan has gone into a door that opened in the flowered wall while Xian was distracted, and escorted to see the Amber Speaker, who wishes to know what business she has with the House of Amber. Shuyan explains that her mother was convicted on the testimony of Hu Yuxin of the House of Amber; she is hoping to meet with him, and find out anything she can about her mother's past. In exchange she could provide knowledge about her mother's doing after she left the Strand. Shuyan herself is from the House of Exuberant Interference now. <br />
<br />
{{QQ|It's a new house, but we do try.|Shuyan}}<br />
{{QQ|We Try. It's a house motto.|Xian}}<br />
<br />
The Speaker tells Shuyan where she can find Hu Yuxin - he lives in a small manor house outside the city. <br />
<br />
==Hu Yuxin==<br />
<br />
It has gotten somewhat late, so the trio takes rooms at an inn for the night. In the morning, they head to the house the Amber Speaker told them about. <br />
<br />
A servant shows them in, and Shuyan introduces herself to Hu Yuxin. When she mentions her mother Kyoko, Yuxin is astonished - she is little Shéshé's daughter? How is she? <br />
<br />
Shuyan is sorry to say that she has gone to the World Beyond now, but does tell him about what happened to her - she married the son of the judge...<br />
<br />
{{QQ|Judge Wu? '''Judge Wu?''' I should never have left her!|Yuxin}}<br />
<br />
Shuyan protests - they were really happy together. Yuxin is dubious about this, as he does not seem to have a very friendly opinion of Shuyan's grandfather, but he is glad to learn that Shéshé was happy, and thrilled to meet her daughter. <br />
<br />
He does know that she called herself Yu Kyoko, but, he explains, he called her Shéshé because she could not be called Yu because she made a highly inappropriate joke about being from the House of Jade. She was from the sticks and didn't understand how inappropriate it was, but nevertheless, she couldn't use the name Yu after that. <br />
<br />
Shuyan is baffled, but it seems to be deep Strand cultural rules which are hard to explain. Yuxin doesn't think Shéshé ever mentioned a town, or that her house was in a town - just way down to the southwest. They... kind of had an agreement to not talk about their parents, as he he was also not on the best of terms with his. But he thinks that there might be more that they could find at the Hall of Records, with her birth name Yu. <br />
<br />
Oh - but where are his manners? Shuyan is Shéshé's daughter! He calls for a feast to be laid out for Shuyan and her friends. They chat happily over dinner, and Yuxin tells various stories about his old gang days, in which he and Shuyan's mom were a pretty good burglary team. He did the distraction and she went in through the second story. But then the weight of the law and Judge Wu came down on them...<br />
<br />
In any event, he's not a burglar or gang member any longer, he's paid his debts and gone straight. But he remembers Shéshé fondly, and finds Shuyan an unexpected treat. (Takanata, on the other hand, he finds rather intimidating). <br />
<br />
He invites the three of them to spend the night, but Takanata and Xian make their excuses and go back to the inn, and Shuyan and Yuxin swap many more stories. <br />
<br />
The next morning, Shuyan meets back up with Takanata and Xian. Takanata asks explicit permission to look at a secret of hers in exchange for telling her what it is. <br />
<br />
{{boxed|<br />
* Shuyan's mother ran away from a house in the Southwest Strand<br />
* It was not in a town.<br />
* It is hidden, unless Shuyan or one other seeks it.<br />
* Shuyan is descended from Serpent.<br />
* If Shuyan heads out of Nine Terraces in <s>approximately</s> the right direction seeking her house, she will find it.<br />
* If Shuyan goes to the Hall of Records, she can find out where the Yu lands are.}}<br />
<br />
==House of Records==<br />
<br />
There is a requisition form for information from the House of Records, which requires a rather extraordinarily long biographical questionnaire to be filled out. Takanata and Xian can assist, though, so with some karma and some help, she can get twelve successes. Takanata finds a map that he deems not helpful, though when he shows it to her, Shuyan notes a mark for "Yu Lands" on it that Takanata had not noticed. <br />
<br />
==House of Jade==<br />
<br />
Exploring the House of Jade, however, will be another day's adventure.</div>Takanatahttp://boojum.scripts.mit.edu/Dragon/index.php?title=Talk:TakanataTalk:Takanata2017-07-02T20:37:31Z<p>Takanata: </p>
