Each samurai has met with their Daiymo and been informed of their new missions to help weed out the Taint within Rokugan borders (and avoid admitting there IS a need to do so). They were each informed they would meet their Emerald Magistrate and fellow yojimbos at Benten Seido, the Shrine to the Fortune of Romance in the Crane Lands.
Waiting at the top of the Shrine was a rather young, lean man with the Crane’s white hair. He introduced himself as Seppun Toshiro, their new Magistrate. Accompanying him was Matsu Rankiku, a woman with a large “personality” and a red mane.
