Flavor Text: Fall of Otosan Uchi

A Champion's Strike - "With a single perfect strike, Hachi sent Tsukuro back to Jigoku, if only for a time. . ."

A New Path - "I do not know why Kai retired so young," Unasagi said sadly. "He would not speak of it to me."

Agasha Oshu - "The last thing I expected to face was a band of Dragon samurai marching with the Dark Oracle. Surely this is not what Lord Hoshi intended for his people."

Agasha Yubisaki - "The Dragon claim that Aikune has been attacking their forces of late, yet I know that he has not. Meanwhile, we have found entire platoons of our own troops burnt to ashes in the field. What is the meaning of this?"

Aid of the Fortunes - "Even now, the ancestors will not answer me," Aikune whispered to the Wish. "Why?"

Akodo Tsuri - "This way, mighty Shogun. I think there are some survivors yet in these catacombs."

Beachhead - "Damn," Garen hissed, realizing that the Mantis and Lion had cut off all escape by sea."

Blood Money - "Find her, Yutaka, and I will give you gold. Kill her, and I will give you the Tsuruchi family."

Bonds of Fate - "What is love, set beside duty, Otemi?" Yasuko asked."

Ch'tppu'kich - "Where did you find all of this loot?" Hio asked. The Nezumi only cackled."

Fires of the Phoenix - "Even after all his work, Masaaki was unwilling to believe he might have purified the lost Black Scroll."

Footman's Yari - "The Lion and Scorpion celebrate the marriage of Otemi and Yasuko, though few are truly happy for the bride and groom, I fear." - Toku

Forgery - "Enough!" the Lion snarled. "This map is useless!" Behind him, the messenger smiled."

Forward Guard - "So the Scorpion are too proud to give the Shogun tribute, eh?" Chaozhu sneered. "Then charge."

Fury of the Damned - "If you must destroy the Dragon," Tsuge whispered, driven to his knees by his wounds, "then destroy the Phoenix as well!" The Dark Oracle of Fire laughed and the mountains cried out in fury. Now Tamori was truly free. . ."

Glick - "Omoni!" Daigotsu chuckled. "What have you done?"
