Wanted in Tacea: The Court of Cranes
« on: Jul 02, 18, 01:39:28 PM »
Sakura no Shingetsu now rules Clan Shingetsu due to the assassination of her mentor, Takara no Shingetsu. Ruling from her seat in Fukouka, Sakura must build her court in order to handle the issues facing the clan. Made of up merchants, accountants, courtiers, and seafarers of great skill, the Shingetsu's dedication to wealth and mercantile power has both surprised and annoyed their contemporaries within the other Great Clans. Marks seem to flow toward the Shingetsu in the same way the river flows toward the sea.

The following concepts are pretty open. They may be holdovers from the previous court, new additions, spies from the criminal faction of the Shingetsu, or members of the vassal clans attempting to improve their personal fortunes. I’m also more than happy to work with you if you have an idea that isn’t shown here or you’d like to mix your idea with something shown below!


The Crane Court
Ruled by: Sakura no Shingetsu, Purple Dusk to Sapphire Queen




Available Positions:



First Escort:

Spoiler (click to show/hide)

**Reserved for Erica!**



Steward:


Difficulty: Standard
Age:: 25-50
Race:: Short-Lived
Caste:: Any
Jewels:: No darker than descent Green

Description:

The Steward is a holdover from Takara’s court who knows the Shingetsu family’s books inside and out. Sakura has kept this person on due to respect for their skill and their years of service to Takara. But this person is very much about enriching the Shingetsu by any (legal, if morally questionable) means necessary. Does this person believe that Sakura is a worthy successor to Takara? Do they think that there is someone better suited to see the clan through the turbulent times ahead? That answer is up to you.

Please note that a male Steward will require explanation of how/why he is literate due to Tacea’s societal norms.




Master of the Guard


Name Hideko Kakita no Shingetsu
Difficulty: Standard
Age:: 35 -45
Race:: Short-Lived
Caste:: Any
Jewels:: Purple Dusk to Green (from Sakura’s Sheet)

Description:

Hideko Kakita married into the Shingetsu ten years ago and worked her way up the ranks, earning a reputation as one of the clan’s deadliest warriors. She bonded to Sakura when the young  Queen first arrived in Takara’s Court, a situation both kept silent on in order to serve their Queen. Hideko is enraged at Takara’s assassination and refuses to allow Sakura to follow her into death. She is Sakura’s sparring partner and occasional lover, constantly putting the young Queen through her paces because war is coming, one way or the other.

She will not bury another Queen.




Court Healer:

Name: Manami Sosuke no Shingetsu (name may be changed)
Difficulty: Standard
Age:: 25-45
Race:: Short-Lived
Jewels:: Summer Sky to Green (from Sakura’s Sheet)

Description:

The eruptions of Mt. Mago and Mt. Itoko have displaced and killed thousands of people, but the greater effects of the volcanoes will become apparent as the ash and smoke spread across the sky, even as far north as Fukouku. The Court Healer is worried that the Landen and non-Aristos are being forgotten in all the talk of Dragon Thrones, successions, and money changing hands. She seeks to keep Sakura’s eye on helping her people even as she guides the clan.



High Priestess of Tacea


Sponsor Gavin & Reid
Difficulty: Advanced
Age:: 25-45
Race:: Short-Lived
Jewels:: Yellow to Rose (Jewels may be re-rolled, no darker than descent Green)

Description:

Sakura has reached out to the High Priestess of Tacea as a part of a “charm offensive” to undermine the slander put forth by the Izayoi. Sakura is genuinely trying to change Tacea’s views of her clan and that begins by offering monetary/food/logistical aid to the altars, villages and temples in Tacea. While the High Priestess will work with all of the clans in order to distribute said aid, she will make certain that it’s known that the Shingetsu are leading the charge. She will also suggest a candidate for High Priestess to Clan Shingetsu, allowing Sakura a direct line to the Conclave.

The High Priestess will also have a bit of push-pull with Reiko Mori, Temple Priestess of Black Immortal. Reiko’s word will count heavily when it comes times to choose the next Dragon Mother, which could lead to some conflict if the larger Conclave supports a different candidate.



Court Seer:

Name:Fumiko Shoshuro no Shingetsu (name may be changed)
 Difficulty: Standard
Age:: 25-35
Race:: Short-Lived
Jewels:: Summer Sky to Green (from Sakura’s Sheet)


Description:

Fumiko was loyal to Takara no Shingetsu, even as she saw several portents that Takara’s rule of the clan would end sooner than they expected. She does not like Sakura’s mother, Aiko, seeing her as overbearing and grasping, but her opinion of Sakura is not fully formed. She doesn’t know if Sakura was part of the plot that saw Takara assassinated, but aims to find out. She has offered her service to the new Queen in order to keep an eye on her and aid her (or topple her) as necessary.

But she’s also seen portents that, unless something is done soon, Clan Shingetsu will be at the center of another War of Dragons.

One that they will lose.



Sword of the Queen:


Spoiler (click to show/hide)






The Circles:


Difficulty: Standard
Caste:: Any (Blood or Landen)
Jewels:: No darker than descent Green


Members of Sakura’s First, Second, and Third Circles may come from the following areas:

-Members of Kiyoko’s crime syndicate
-Family (cousins, siblings)
-Bonded males
-Temple orphans taken in by Takara
-Legitimate business-people looking to expand their networks across Tacea and to the mainland of Terreille.
-Vassal Families of the Shingetsu (Sosuke, Shoshuro, Kakita, Yasuki)
-Landen who want a voice in how their lives and livelihoods are being handled by the Blood.
