The Hakura Chronicle

Descending Earth VI
A Haunted Dojo

Charmed Light is sent by Seiryu himself to recover an artifact once wielded by a Dragonblooded Champion of Hakura known as The Resplendant Black Crane.

This journey leads her into the heart of the Lost Dominion to the Toiwnship of Keren. Here she meets two fellow Solar Exalted. The first is the travelling healer and apothecarey named garden’s Faire. the second was a Markuran outrider and postman by the name of Stallion’s Koan. Powerful first age flashbacks made them aware of each other’s Exalted nature.

They all were informed of a haunted Dojo to the north, and it is here that the artifact Charmed Light seeks is located. So far three youth have met grisly ends by the unclean spirits that now reside there, according to the local townies.

The three agree to team to investigate the dojo, help Charmed Light retrive the artifact, and defeat whatever evil may now reside there.

The next day through some rather interesting circumstances they are joined by River Flows Deep, and the young mysterious performer Mutt’s Bite. Powerful first age flashbacks reveal how Mutt and River were twin brothers in their past lives as Solar Exalted, now bound by powerful sorcery to find each other in every subesquent incarnation.

Together the improptu circle face the Haunted pagoda at midday. They question the forest spirits and discover the place is severly haunted by ghosts. One particularlly powerful one that has killed and enslaved the ghosts of all the dojo’s students. Those with spirit sight see all the ghosts, including the terrifying Nephwrack that is their leader and report their sightings to the rest of the group.

The group then investigates the back garden and discovers a terrifying drowned woman in the back pond, floating in the water over a pile of bodies harboring slumbering hungry dead.

Through a powerful prayer to the Unconqured Sun by Mutt’s Bite, and the mystical golden fire of Charmed Light’s Anima, the entire pikle of bodies were purfied in the fires of the Unconqured Sun and the Hungry dead destroyed.

The Drowned Woman, see only by those with Spirit sight, arose from the water and crawled into the pagaoda to speak with here undead master.

It was then the circle left and returned to the village to regroup before sundown arrived.
