The year is Tenshō 10, in the Twelfth month. Six months ago the betrayer Akechi Mitsuhide attacked his master Oda Nobunaga at Honnō-ji, burning it to the ground along with the demon warlord. Snowfall covers the mainland, and a time that should be spent in contemplative seclusion is now spent in clandestine war meetings. Stillness and oppressive silence envelope the countryside, but whispers of secret treachery fill the halls of every daimyō. In Settsu province, Lord Inukai and his loyal retainers meet to discuss the coming war for the title of Shogun.
A group of shadowrunners have been hired to acquire rare and ancient Japanese artifacts currently stored in a museum in Seattle. It seems their original owner wants them back. The team is happy to oblige, only there’s an additional twist: no blood must be shed during the heist. This may make the theft more challenging than any of the high tech or mystical defenses set in place. Or perhaps the artifacts themselves may be the final challenge. Ancient art in Japan is more than beautiful…it’s positively haunted.
