Things We Want To Do
The GMs don't always have a good sense of what plots the party as a whole wants to be pursuing. So if there's a plot you want to do in a run (steal the Tortoise talisman, change the name of the Roof of the World, whatever), list it below, and put your name beside it. If someone else has listed a plot you are in favor of, put your name beside it. Feel free to list as many as you like, but if it's a plot nobody has poked at yet, you probably also want to put some effort into figuring out how to start.
Things with a Plan
Change the name of the Roof of the World: Xiao Fa, Master Zhou, Wei Han, Cai Wen, Lijuan, Kasumi, Shen-Ji, Deng (or other countries), Kuan Xi, Yanyu (
huh? where? back on this plan now that I believe it's a place again)
- Update on new plan: Kar Fai got the Steward and Lord Hawk onboard. Xiao Fa needs to figure out how big the Spirit of the Lake is, and then the party can spend a run on getting the Spirit of the Lake onboard.
Hunt the Ice Wyrm: Takanata, Lijuan, Shen-Ji, Wei Han (provided we find a flame weapon so he's useful)
Tag the Illuminated Precincts for Dragon: Shen-Ji
- The plan so far is to build up the Sakong family (with a party for Sages being the first step), then leverage that influence to get the Council to start doing things we want. The tag is currently planned to be a Dragon Boat Festival.
Things without a Plan yet
Get Takanata back: Lijuan
Deal with Bobby Li, the Excellent Urchin: Lijuan
Find out who the new Marked is (there's going to be a replacement, right?): Lijuan
Clean up aftermath of Night of Gates: Lijuan
Stop the Alchemist from pointing the chi of the Empire at Spider again: Xiao Fa, Wei Han, Lijuan
- Figure out where we want the chi of the Empire pointed and point it there: Lijuan
Steal the Talisman-Tracking-Map from the ninjas (may not be in Hidden City): Takanata, Master Zhou, Xiao Fa done
Stealing the Tortoise Talisman: Xiao Fa, Shen-Ji, Cai Wen, Deng, Min Feng
- Does the party still want to do this?
Thwart the Great Khan: Lijuan, Xiao Fa, Shen-Ji, Cai Wen, Xian, Wei Han
Cross the wall and wreak havoc in Northern territories: Wei Han, Shen-Ji, Kasumi
- I believe that this is OBE given the current situation (Shen-Ji)
Learn more about each of the current cycle spirits (and candidates), especially their interactions with Spider. This would be a preamble to deciding if any were to be replaced by Horse. Lijuan, Xiao Fa (I think Takanata did a big chunk of this already), Deng
- If there's a particular cycle spirit that you want to know more about, it's worth separating that out as a plot. "Learn more about everything" is a little too broad. :)
- Crane!: Lijuan
Get "Min Feng's" Star Metal: Shen-Ji, Takanata
- This plot is unlikely to be instantiated if Min Feng is not on board
Rename the Shrouded Isle: Kuan Xi, Yanyu, Xiao Fa
Swap the Islands back: Kuan Xi, Yanyu, Takanata, Xiao Fa Done.
- And rescue Da Xie from utter boredom: Lijuan
- And rescue what's-her-name, the hero in the north: Lijuan
Get a more detailed plan on putting Dragon back in the Cycle: Yanyu, Lijuan
Reconcile Whale and Dragon: Lijuan, Xiao Fa is on board for 'find out if Whale helped Coyote get in, turned a blind eye, or something else'
- Ask Crane's permission to replace Renyu as Whale's minion: Lijuan
Meddle in the succession of the Empire: Lijuan Changed my mind.
Meddle in Forest of Chin politics: Lijuan
Go back to the Jade District: Xiao Fa (wants to visit the Palace of the Nine Dragons) Done.
Get into the records of the Iron Fortress to find out which collapsed mine is likely to have been where the originals Keepers of the Hoard kept one of the Keys: Xiao Fa
