Winter Court’s A-Comin.
The next session’s the start of Winter Court. All Ago’s plans has fallen out from under him and he’s been cursed to act more like a Crab. So no plotting or scheming or indirect anything. Also more smashing.
Ago’s just trying to secure gifts and be a Courtier despite his curse (which he doesn’t know about). And he accidentally got a crazy stalker when he was polite to the wrong monk. A monk who our Mantis sentenced to bureaucratic hell for stalking someone else.
And all the while, my big Hida buddy, Akuto, is slowly going crazy because he thinks people are trying to poison his food and outright kill him. So he’s conscripted the retired Investigator, whose also wiping out the gang Ago controls to gentrify the island before Winter Court.
So basically, my gang’s getting wiped out, my pragmatic muscle is busy being crazy, and Ago can’t be Ago because of a curse. There’s a crazy shugenja running around who turned into a bat and flew away, some giant dead-priest-spirit in the water, the other gangs hate me, and our Mantis, who hasn’t plotted or schemed, but whose set up relief efforts and built schools, is winning the island so far.
