Episode 274

They need to find more information, and they have a good lead that perhaps they can find it at the Inn of the Red Crossroads. Of course they first have to get there which as it is in the centre of an enormous battleground that three different clans have fought over repeatedly might be difficult. Luckily they have an ample supply of Ghost repelling mushrooms, shame they do not have a mushroom that repels assassins or internal conflict isn’t it?

Given they have dealt with the Gaki and talked to the Ghost you would think the Officers would be fleeing away from the Haunted Forest, except that they aren’t.

Episode 264

Returning from the Heiwana shrine the Officers of the Diamyo report back and hen have to discuss what to do next. With the Nakatomi certainly likely to take offence at the killing of their Executioner, the theft of their Teppo and the capture of Jinsoku the Swift perhaps it would be best to prepare for war. However there is a niggling feeling that the Ghost on the Bridge was trying to warn them of something far more dangerous.

What will they do? and more importantly, are they actually going to be able to work together in the face of their varying agendas.

Creeping into a haunted forest at night seemed like such a good plan at first. Then of course it became obvious that there was a lot more in the forest than just them. In fact there is a pretty good chance that the forest is not only haunted but hiding a whole lot of threats.

Can the Samurai enact their plan to steal the Teppo and even the odds? Or will they all die?

Who Knows!

Episode 260

The plan was to have a nice little talk, sort out the confusion about the Migunakitsune presence at the shrine and prevent any bloodshed. However having the Nakatomi samurai shot by an unseen assailant was not part of the plan, especially leaving the much less talkative Nakatomi clan executioner in charge of the surrounding forces.

Here in Champion City we have always had Heroes, from the days of the Iron Age when Mr Furious was stomping around angrily, to the Golden Age when the first Glory appeared. Over the years however the heroes have changed, but one thing has stayed the same. There is always a new supervillian for them to face, and now Hoskull the Insane Ice Giant is collecting the motes of possibility, and if he gets them all we will be doomed. All the heroes are needed!

Which is great for these teenage superheroes… because it means despite blowing up the park, they might actually get to fight some crime!
