  1. กุมารทอง (Not for sale)

    2017.06.18 – กุมารทอง (Not for sale) While your character is browsing through a civilian antiques store/garage sale/etc., they spot a powerful (and potentially dangerous) artifact. Unfortunately, it's not for sale... He was doing his round of antique stores; every month, a few very sensitive individuals would be sent in a designated city for such a purpose. There was a rotation, so the owners would not become suspicious. This time around, Katsuro had been sent to the heart of Bangkok....
  2. 霊界 Reikai (Flower amid ashes)

    2017.06.10 - 霊界 Reikai (Flower amid ashes) The secret worl is often one of unimaginable horror, but it can also be one of great beauty. What is the most beautiful thing that your character has encountered so far? The night was filled with the song of the summer crickets as the rays of the full moon touched the engawa just outside the bedroom. Only one figure occupied the bed, his deep and steady breathing of one still fast asleep. There was the soft rustling of someone getting dressed,...
  3. Selective execution (Busted!)

    2017.06.03 - Selective execution (Busted!) Uh oh! A civilian walks in on your character conducting some secret world-y business. What happens next? The moon was slowly rising over Yan'an, a prefecture-level city of the Shaanxi province which had been in the heart of many human conflicts, once the headquarters of the Chinese Communists and then completely razed in WWII by the Japanese bombing. As such, the city was a great magnet for those spirits who had a taste for humanity's darkest...
  4. Times long gone (Buried treasure)

    2017.06.02 - Times long gone (Buried treasure) While tidying up their apartment/office/wagon/etc, your character finds something that they haven't seen in years... This old house that had seen him grow, at least until his father's death, had changed considerably over the years. It had belonged to the Wakahisa for many, many generations. But, as time flew by, the house had to be maintained, repaired and renovated on many occasions. Yet, even as the rooms had changed to welcome the comfort...
  5. The Unwritten

    Linked to one entry in Kuro's journal 'Hansei' and is, as the name implies, the unwritten part of what happened after 'The Link' community event GMed by Nvida Noire. Tagged as NSFW because of blood and self-imposed punishment.
  6. Nanda yo?! (Return to sender)

    2017.05.04 - Nanda yo?! * (Return to sender) NSFW-ish Your character receives an unmarked package which they feel oddly compelled to open... His morning class had gone rather well, this group being far more experienced than what he'd had to work with lately. Since that gave him half of the day to himself, Katsuro took a small detour to this small Korean restaurant he enjoyed to order take out. His lunch in hand, he made his way home for an afternoon of relaxing. Closing in on his little...
  7. Just reward (You've got [voice] mail!)

    2017.04.28 - Just reward (You've got [voice] mail!) Your character checks their phone and sees that they have a number of missed calls, all from the same number... "..." - Tuesday 6:02 am "Uh.. ah hello. I'm uh... sorry-" - Tuesday 6:12 am "Hi! Sorry I was too shy to leave a message. I... I think you're really cool and uh... have a nice day!" - Tuesday 7:27 am "Hello.. it's me again. Okay I can do this! Would you like - or mind - like... for a cup of coffee? I mean, to meet for a...
  8. 家族 – Kazoku (Family)

    Note: So this is a strange story, in the sense that it literally unfolded in my mind as I was drifting between sleep and wakefulness. So some aspects may feel weird, some notions a bit farfetched (though nothing lore breaking). At this point, it didn’t really happened in Kuro’s life either - at least not until it has been read by the player behind Theodore. It's officially canon! The title represent mostly the main feeling I had when I dreamt it, and Sun Hyeon was at the center, as a...
  9. Ripples (Making history)

    2017.03.18 - Ripples (Making history) Your character somehow ended up making it into the history books! The question is... what for? Something that might be found in the books that new recruits might be forced to read some time in the future. The hospital was quiet at this time of night; reduced staff and patients sleeping. One of the nurse was making his round in the children's ward, comforting a child or two along the way who'd woken up either in pain or calling for their parents. He...

  11. Arigato gozaimashita (Season Recap)

    2017.03.08 - Arigato gozaimashita (Season Recap) 1. Has your character kept any of their New Year's resolutions? If so (or if not!), how has it affected them? 2. Were there any major turning points in your character's life this year? How have they dealt with it? 3. What does your character hope to accomplish in the year ahead? Have they made some progress towards this goal? FOR AN EXTRA CHALLENGE: Write any of these replies as a journal entry! 2017.01.01 (Hansei) It's been so many...
  12. Don't let me walk alone (Giving thanks)

    2017.03.06 - Don't let me walk alone (Giving thanks) Whom is your character most thankful for at this point in their life? The expensive bottle of sake was sitting on the corner of the kitchen table while Kuro was busy wrapping the sushi he'd just prepared. Closing the two bento boxes, he went to fetch two small sake cups from the cupboard and placed everything, sake included, in a small reusable grocery bag. He took the time to clean a bit around the kitchen before getting changed into a...
  13. A debt to be repaid (Close call)

    A dept to be repaid August 24th 2015 He was merely lying on his back in a patch of grass, looking up at the sky or what little he could see, between the tall buildings of Kaidan and the strange fog, wrapping the city in a blanket of mystery and death. His breathing was laborious and painful, yet he still gripped the bloody katana at his side, ready to slice any Filth creatures who'd dare disturb his final moments - because he knew a century of fighting was coming to an end. A thin smile...
