The Kumi Monks 167th Annual Martial Arts Festival is about to begin!
The players are introduced to Ikeda Kazuki, son of Ikeda Daichi the local lord of Hiyosai. Things are going smoothly until the festival is almost interrupted by an attack from the White Lotus Clan, a group of assassins, who poison the Kumi Monks master, Sun Tsao. Sensei Li Ting takes over for the time being and the players hunt down some of the fleeing White Lotus members and capture a few for interrogation. The festival begins and goes off without a hitch, until the end, when people are filing out of the place, when Ikeda Kazuki and his guards are attacked by one of the lower ranking Kumi Monks nonetheless! One of Ikeda Kazuki's guards are killed in this exchange and the rest leave with Ikeda Kazuki to report this matter. The rest of the night is spent discussing the happenings of the day and tasks are given out to the higher ranking Kumi Monks to try and handle these issues. During the night, the Gong of Defense is wrung and the Gatekeepers discover a fleet of 60 ships heading towards the mountain from the Forest of Spirits to the west. What is the Kumi Monks going to do? Find out next time on DRAGON BA.... waaa I mean Sommdiggedy's Eastern Campaign!
