The Wolf holds a grand funeral for Ōkinayama Shin, burning a root taken boldly from the demon tree on the funeral pyre in his place. Nearly all of its families' living warriors gather, and the clan bequeaths a gift of iron and wood to the Emperor at the conclusion of the wake.

Akikaze closes the borders of the fox clan for this week. He knows that although they have helped the wolf in the defeat of the Jubokko clan, it was not with out it's costs. He begins researching a way to purify the cursed Akuryo tree and the fallen lands of the Jubokko clan.

Sakamoto Tomohisa, son of the current Kirin Clan Head Sakamoto Soujiro, has recently returned from a year long period of meditation in the mountains. A small celebration was held upon his return, somewhat subdued thanks to the news of the recent events in the Jubokko Clan's former territory. Prayers are held throughout the week for the fallen clan and its people.

Just so you all know, the back-to-school period has been a bit trying. Tomorrow night I'll be able to update.

The Black Lotus Clan is favored by the Emperor.
There are no more free holdings.
The Black Lotus Clan has sent an Heir to make a bid for the Princess' hand! It may be time to make a counter-offer!
The Kirin Clan has installed a Minister of Religious Affairs in the Imperial Court.
Murmurs of war spread across the land. Please provide updated Soldier and Samurai allocations.
All Holdings produce resources:

The Black Lotus pens a note:

missive
Fellow Lords

The forces of the Kirin are actively working to restrict our freedom. They are taking Sovereignty away from our clans, and they must be stopped.

The Black Lotus sell 1 Gold and Silk this turn. (For 378 Ryo, favoured so no tariff.)

All of my forces (843) will attack the Silk Farmlands of the Kirin!

The Wolf follows its ally, levying troops and leading its armies against the Kirin.

((Apologies to afroakuma and to anyone who read my first post. Still not fond of the situation but I'll play through it, and it wasn't very mature of me to explode in the thread like that.))

Sakamoto Soujiro, the Kirin Clan head, writes two missives upon hearing that the Wolf and the Black Lotus are preparing for war.

A missive to the Black Lotus
Of all the clans, we must say we are least surprised that it is the Black Lotus that is attempting to commit such dishonorable acts. We would like nothing more than to put the past behind us and make peace between our Clans, but it seems your mistrust of us is too deeply ingrained. We are saddened that we are unable to work this out like civilized people, and that you must resort to savagery. In the end, it is not our Clans, but the people who lose when blood is shed.

A missive to the Wolf
We are unsure what we have done to bring about the need for deadly force, but if an apology will help, you have it. The Kirin Clan has never had anything against the Wolf, and indeed, we even assisted you with defeating the deadly demon that the Jubokko summoned. Is it not possible to resolve this by methods other than bloodshed?

Knowing that it was unlikely that either Clan would back down now, Soujiro would issue new orders to the troops, repositioning them for the attack.

Never give up! Time to get stubborn! When life gives you lemons, throw them at the jerk who gave them to you!

Alright, players, gather around for the announcement you probably knew was coming.

Due to real-life pressures stacking up in an all-out war on my free time, coupled with the extensive amount of time it takes to run a weekroll, Shoendo must unfortunately come to a premature end.

When I can no longer commit reliably to even one weekroll per week, things have gotten too far out of control. I'm not at all pleased about this development, but it is what it is. I can only hope that some day I can return to this format.

As far as victory is concerned, based on present numbers the triumphant clan is/would be the Wolf Clan. Congratulations to gkathellar, and to you all for your showing in this game.

Look forward to a potential upcoming game that may run here but won't take me more than an hour to process daily.  ;)

Congratulation GKathellar!

It was certainly fun watching how this went from the sidelines.

My friend just shared this: "Remember that time Gandalf convinced the whole party to flee so that he could take out the Balrog and not have to share any of the XP? Shows up the next session with fancy new robes and everything. What a jerk."
