Ji Kassa pays the total ammount and meets with Flint, Merkel and Yoshirou in her cart to receive the pay from Flint. He pays. She was about to leave when Merkel asked for the second part of the deal. " I was toying with you. " She gives them a guide who can take them to the Village of Nimshi. A creature that resembles a white house cat with two tails. Neku the Bakaneko. Ji Kassa gives them a bak with 30 beef jerks and instructions to feed one of them each day at dusk. She speaks to the Bakaneko: " Now you are no longer my problem. "

Ji Kassa explains that she is a native of Nimshi and that the father of Chaei Tun The White lives there. This man hates her because he believes Ji Kassa perverted Chaei and made him leave the village to travel the world.

The members of the Band of the Wolf separated, Merkel was placed in charge of Neku. They went to different parts of the city to see the Thyatian Parade. Who will enter the city using the west gate and will end in the Waping Piao Military Quarters.

Frutumal and Patriarch Yakius Shanginus are ready to be in the last part of the parade when General Rusianus Vladetronus changes the order and places the religous part of the parade just behind his unit.

The parade starts and the people of Waping Piao are not happy. A second parade that was guided by members of the Benevolent Order of Chang Dangsu intercepted the Thyatian Militar Parede of the General and claimed for the rights of the ochaleans and against the abusses of the General. Incluying the insult of making this a religious parade without includying any ochalean religion or immortal symbol.

The following actions were made by the Band of the Wolf’s members:
Frutumal tried to calm General Rusianus Vladetronus without success he was ‘awarded’ 25 lashes. General Vladetronus ordered a charge to disperse the insurgents.
Captain Pos Lio ordered the city guard to protect the rich and the government of the Waping Piao Sun Quarters and the Waping Piao Government Halls.
Yoshirou convinced a palace guard named Mau Tang to open the doors of the Waping Piao Sun Quarters and led poor people of the city enter to safety. Cliona was able to move ochaleans to the Sun Quarters.
An Assassin shot a normal ochalean arrow to the General and an arrow with magic that exploded the head of the Monk leading the peaceful manifestation. Raizak was able to see that they look like the karameikan female wizard from the Secret Unit of the General that Frutumal described.
Troyus and Veitor saved a bunch of ochalean cookers at The Seven Monks by holding a door against Minotaurs!!
Merkel escaped with Neku to a safer place.
Dio moved the thyatian clerical procession to the Waping Piao Government Halls.
Flint used improved invisibility to trip minotaurs and slow the masacre.
Spells cast by Raizak and Frutumal calmed the people and slowed the massacre making it end faster and saving many people.

After the parade:
Troyus, Veitor and Cliona are no longer seen as Gaijin and the – 4 penalty is removed. The people will be softer to them for saving many lives.
Yoshirou organizes and pays for a food drive for the families of the people killed in the masacre. He expends 50gps.
Merkel is able to make Neku talk by eating one of her beef jerks and making her cooperate. Neku tells them to travel to the Village of Lasimar.
The Crew of The Walrus was released and Captain James Flint pays his son 400gps for helping them and will take the Band of the Wolf and their horses to the Village of Lasimar.
Patriarch Yakius Shanginus spoke to Frutumal " You have been played by the General. He claims that you organized the religious elements that insulted the people of Waping Piao. He will use you as a scapegoat if word of his attack reaches the capital and his reputation is in jeopardy. The General has another card up his sleeve as he has received word from the capital that Patriarch Hythus Phorous of Kingdom of Karameikos accused Frutumal of insubordination and gave him a bad reputation.

Merkel’s Addition to the adventure:

Regarding the thyatian copper coin, the engraved symbol resembling an ‘R’ on the eagle is acttually the symbol for the Ochalean word ’ Defiance’. It’s the symbol of the rebellion.

Addendum:

Axetor character also won the 100xp for the PbP. He didn’t play in the adventure but his 100xp has been adjusted to his total xp awards.

Yoshirou received a surprise that show him that sometimes the most obvious hints are just in from of our face. His brother’s fan that he has been everywhere was one painted with a Bakaneko design. His comrades of the Band of the Wolf saw the design the first time they saw the broken fan.
