Jade Regent: Forest of Spirits

The Vision

Three months ago

“General.” The sub-colonel burst into Isamu’s tent without an announcement. The general glared at him for a second. "By your leave, sir.

General Isamu pinched the bridge of his nose and grimaced. This had not been a good day. “Yes, Singham,” he muttered

“The oracles have an interesting vision,” Singham blurted out. Then there was a long pause.

“Out with it. I’m not in the mood right now. We lost another patrol on the fire astern front to oni collaborators. I’m very god’s damned busy.”

“Uhm,” Singham swallowed. “It’s about the lost bloodline of Amatatsu. That’s all…”

“Take me to them immediately!”

Manko!” Isamu gasped. “No Kusottare. You are absolutely positive.”

“We each were blessed with similar results. Irori, Desna, and Shizaru,” the oracle confirmed. We have found a direct descendent of the Amatatsu line. In addition, the wu Jen have scryed and found that her name is Ameiko Kaijitsu…"

“Kaijitsu,” Isamu interrupted. “Where have I heard that name before. Go on.”

“Pretender Kaijitsu is being escorted, by foot, by a rag tag group of adventures, and dare I say, criminals, across The Crown of the World. Pursued by oni, bandits, barbarians, ninja…”

“I get it.”

“They have already lost several members of her entourage, and based on past performance, they may lose more. The pretender has already been kidnapped twice. Also, they have the familial sword.” The oracle went on for some time about the various misfortunes and triumphs of the guards.

“Are you sure you want to do it this way?”

“Yes, Subcolonel. We can’t teleport an army. She has guards and they are reasonably competent. My we jen can teleport me to an intercept path so I can wait for them and help escort her to the throne. I think she is just what we need for the final blow against the oni.”
