DDC 2001: The Eaters of Sin

The Eaters of Sin

Some call it Journey’s End City and some call it the City of Green Walls. In the end, it is Ryoko Owari Toshi: the City of Lies. Behind every smile, a lie. And behind every lie … honor? A Scorpion’s paradise is sometimes its pain as well.

The above image is an artist’s rendition of the Bayushi enforcer group from the Eaters of Sin storyline. The kanji in the top half of the art correspond to the names of the characters – clockwise around the table from the left they are: Hungry Moon the Assassin, Wind the bushi, Five Thunders the impersonator, Empty Wind – courtier and ringleader, the other bushi Big Fortune, the duellist Hollow Eyes, Void the shugenja, and Smoke the saboteur. The artist played Empty Wind. Domo arigato to Ms. Zimmer for the outstanding artwork (which is not in the public domain)!!

The Eaters of Sin – a DunDracon 2001 event – was an “all Scorpion” story with characters provided. Two sessions of this event were be run (simultaneously) with two separate storytellers on Sunday (2/18), at 8:00pm.

Each PC group was a capable band of Scorpion enforcers – Bayushi and Soshi. They had been summoned and assigned the tasks of escorting the younger brothers of the recently arrived Daidoji Magistrate to Ryoko Owari.
A fun time was had by all! Thanks to all the players who attended!!

DDC 1999: Souls of Shinomen Mori

Talk about a fun Con! The House of the Jade Lantern salutes:

~ The players of the House’s own “Souls of Shinomen Mori” event. The monks here at the House were not mindful enough to write down the names, but group is easy enough to recognize. Domo arigato gozaimasu to the 12 Diplomats of Bayushi Risako! Banzai!!

~ Mark from Gold Rush Games and his group of samurai. The Fortunes were watching over that the Master somehow wound up at a well hidden and most enjoyable game of Sengoku. Domo arigato to all, and again to Sodan-san, for introductions and the tasty fotune cookies!

~ All the folks – professionals, publishers, and fans alike – who I had the honor to meet, discuss and game with!
