Legend of the Five Rings – Masterpiece: Iron Crane Chef (Part 2)

The yoriki get to work straight away, with their plans to salvage Kakita Yoshitaka’s meal expected to take up the entire night and most of the next morning. Sailors have to be paid, noodles need to be sourced. And who would have a bottle of the famous Daidoji Umeshu available at this unforunate hour at a reasonable price? On the one hand, success means the favor of the powerful Lady Doji Mika and the fulfillment of their mission, but failure may mean becoming victims seven through twelve of Seppun Takashi’s brutal need for obeisance.

Legend of the Five Rings – Masterpiece: Iron Crane Chef (Part 1)

The Crane city of Mura Sabishii Toshi is once again a seat of growing prosperity after being ravaged in a Crab/Crane border conflict. It’s governess is an important figure, whose opinion carries a lot of weight even in the courts of the Capital, and her favor is desired by the Emerald Bureaucracy.

It should have been a simple, even boring social visit, but an impossible-to-please noble and a ruined meal put Magistrate Torokai’s assembled team in a much more interesting position, with surprisingly high stakes.

Note from the GM: These one-shots are being posted slightly out of order, there’s no direct causal relationship between any of them, but the previous one is mentioned in the intro. Continue reading »

Only War – Severan Dominate Finale

Nunna dem humies gon’ scrap wit’ us, wen we ridin’ in dis. No maskboyz, none dem flyin’ gits wot got wingz. Dey too caught up killin’ each ovva. Makes Ed wish he kinda didn’t have it.

Kinda.

Oi! Wot’s dat bangin’ on I ‘ear? Humiez on da roof? Gon’ be a good ‘un after all. A rite scrap!

– ‘Edrecka Da Grot-Minda, five seconds before the Severan assault began.

All allies have been called in. All available wargear and manpower put to its best use. The Aetherian Rex auxilliary squad rides into battle, flanked by their ship-mate’s gunships. They are the Dominate’s last and only hope to maintain presence on Hervara. Without the planet’s metals, Duke Severus’ dream of independence from the Imperium will be strangled to death by lack of raw materials before it even gets to draw breath.

Ordinatus Ullator must be destroyed, or taken for the Dominate. No other outcome is acceptable, no matter how unlikely.

Only War – Severan Dominate Episode 11

The so-called “Saint” Drusus was a nothing more than a mouthpiece for those who oppressed us! With that in mind, the Festival of “Saint” Drusus shall be replaced by a more fitting celebration – the Feast of Rightful Stewardship. As I have for all of you – give others what they deserve. Those you interdepend on. Those who observe justice, and act with honesty.
Edict XIV, 1 month into the New Severan Calendar, Year The First

Even with the news of an Imperial offensive on their minds, the Dominate Overpass HQ can’t help but celebrate the Feast of Rightful Stewardship, a Severan holiday based on gift-giving and general comraderie. Each squad member celebrates in their own way, and it looks like this is the calm before a terrible storm.

Only War – Severan Dominate Episode 10

We’re getting dragged down into this planet, for decades maybe. And for what? It’s like fighting someone over an empty bag of recaf – nothing but tunnels and spite left on the surface. We have better places to fight. So let’s end this.
-Codename “Cassius”, Dominate Informant

While the Severan base at Kleins has to be abandoned, there’s still hope to recover the squad’s old Rhino and punch another hole in the Corbin-Danziger Line. Due to the actions of a mole in the Imperial forces, Dominate High Command can still take advantage of the acceleration of the three-way battle that began with the firing of an unknown weapon.
