A place to centralize links to these things.
We know of a land to the east largely because of Coyote, who came from there. He has mentioned other spirits in that land, including Raven, Thunderbird, and lots of Bears.
- Coyote Notes
- Coyote Briefing:
Kiri shows up and apologizes for the extreme delay. Apparently, Renyu was supposed to deliver this a while ago, but he's tied up with the Sea Lord at the moment, so she's been asked by Whale to deliver it for them.
The long lost coyote briefing from Whale:
Coyote is a trickster spirit. Very much like Monkey. He's got a fair amount of punishing the vain and serious, but also much more identity confusion. He's often impersonating others, or getting others to impersonate each other, etc. Monkey tends towards a more physical comedy, Coyote is much more situational.
He's here in the Empire because he's temporarily in hiding from his own lands and realms. Whale doesn't really understand the details, but apparently Raven and Thunderbird are having a bit of a row between them, and it's Coyote's fault. The Blue Stone Bear is searching him out, and if he finds him, will drag Coyote back before the others and put the whole matter to bed. So, he's laying low.
But, he bores easily, so he's having fun in the Empire while things boil over at home. Monkey is using him, Fox is chastising him, Spider hasn't seen him, and Butterfly betrayed him. From Whale's point of view, he fits in well with all of them...
- The Light: A faction from the West, who have "infiltrated" the Empire. They seem to be focused around Chaos/Liberty and have had schticks involving the breaking of rules. They have names that are weird and difficult to pronounce, and make unusual word choices when speaking, using synonyms to change the connotations of things.
- The Dark: A faction from the West, of whom we have met only one representative that we know of. They seem to be focused around Law/Order and Sima seems to have schticks about enforcing laws.
