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 secret war has begun in the shadows. Two cults, one led by the spirit Logos and the other by Haruspex, a powerful psychic, vie for domination. The Gate 9 crew does not trust either group, so they must find what they are doing and put a stop to it. They will need allies for this mission, so they must find them…
