At last, the secrets of the Long Vault will be revealed. Sheng is now trapped in his hideout on the Plateau of Leng. The Ronin must travel to the heart of the Vault and trap the sorcerer within it. Of course, this is easier said than done. What hidden fortress is without its defenses? And even if the Ronin succeed, will their victory even matter? The cosmic forces at work in this conflict are beyond any of their imaginations. Is victory, or even peace truly possible? Join the Ronin as they open the Long Vault!
The Ronin have found the secret hideout of Sheng’s cult and have called in the authorities for a final assault on the notorious terrorist group ‘Empty Five’. Despite the attack helicopters and platoons of heavily armed soldiers on their side, the Ronin know that victory or death will come in their own skills and preparation. They know they have the right weapons and as much knowledge as they can bear, but Sheng always seems to have a secret or two up his sleeve. Then there’s the matter of an Iron-Banded Box….
The Ronin have returned to their own time and have decided to take on Sheng. They need critical intel from Sheng’s cult. Of course, the cult’s headquarters are heavily guarded so gaining access will be no easy task. But the Ronin are nothing if not creative problem solvers. An infiltration plan that includes the use of a popular children’s character, sniper rifles, and going undercover as a new cultist will be the last thing Sheng expects.No plan works perfectly though. Can the Ronin escape with the intel before they’re caught?
It is the year 444 of Sheng the Immortal’s rule. As Sheng has always existed, he had the foresight to find brave warriors and cunning tacticians and send their minds through time so they may be useful long after their natural deaths. Now, as a ruler, Sheng uses Pilgrims for missions of great importance. Most arrivals of the Pilgrims are foretold, but not all of them. Guides wait to greet the Pilgrims, should they arrive unexpectedly. The latest group of Pilgrims is unlike the others though…
The Ronin have agreed to help John McAfee on a job. It has nothing to do with their quest to stop the vampire conspiracy, but they are men of their word and they need the money. The job, of course, is not so simple. Triad gangsters have kidnapped a sushi chef and are auctioning him off to the highest bidder. The Ronin must rescue the chef but he is being held on a ship run by covert North Korean agents. Infiltrating a ship in international waters held by paranoid and heavily armed soldiers is one thing, but the Ronin are nothing if not cunning. But when they stumble across a panda being held by the North Koreans, they realize they must save the hapless bear, no matter the cost. Find out how this most epic of side missions unravels!
