Episode 281

First Off we sadly had a ton of planes going overhead, and the worlds loudest pigeon! Sorry I did try and cut them out where I could!

So they have a plan for dealing with Talithar now, watch her probable route into their domain and drop on her the moment they see her. The fact these plans involve standing around in other vampires domains is neither here nor there.

Also have they really thought through the “look like the sort of people she eats” part of the plan?

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.
