Weinan Wakayama had to look no further then the Museum. There he found the Shogun, day and night for weeks the Shogun seemed to never leave the Museum ... visitors claimed he had taken to muttering about "missing items", "collecting just one more item", and "damned expensive artifacts". He was rarely seen on the field of battle since the war ... some in the Clan feared he was losing his mind, but this Samurai felt that this was important news ... much more important then a collection of items in a museum. He found the Shogun in a room full of display cases. "Shogun I have some important news for you ..." He was quickly interrupted. "Young Samurai take a look at this," Beamed Yasuo as he pointed out a display case of blaze weapons that were clearly elven inspired, "almost a complete set just one missing the darned elusive Shard Thrasher." The Shogun blanched as he spoke the words. "Yes most impressive," interjected the Samurai, " but this news ..." Again he was interrupted by the Shogun, "Our clansmen have done a good job collecting items for our opening but we are still missing many single peices of these armor sets." He gestured to a bank of display cases. "Shogun - no offense but the museum be damned this is important news." barked Weinan who was losing his patience. Yasuo narrowed his eyes and stared at the Samurai. "Speak of your news then." The Samurai straightened and then began, "Our patrols the night past took us deep into Ilshinar where we don't generally go. We came across dozens of deer carcasses, and as the laws do not permit the senseless slaughter of woodland creatures rather just taking enough to live on, we sought out the perpetrator. It was savages sire." The Shogun raised an eyebrow, "Savages? Do tell." Weinan coughed, "Well umm .. it seems the U'wah tribe has decided that those lands belong to them and that the laws do not pertain to them. I spoke to the one member I encountered and he was filthy wearing armor made of bone. He seemed to understand me but he kept making gutteral noises and waving his spear at me every time I told him that we would collect tithe. I am not sure if these men, if you wish to call them that, will abide by the law." The Shogun smirked, "Please Samurai ... if we must tithe savage mudmen for their hides and the crust under their nails ... let them be ... watch them .. if they are agressive, punish them ... otherwise let them be they are harmless." The Shogun stared off at the collection of mini-houses and began muttering to himself ... "only four more ... where can I get them." "There is MORE sire." Weinan nearly shouted as he saw the Shogun's attention waning. Yasuo remade eye contact. "It seems one of our patrols had a large skirmish out of west Umbra. A combined force of TnT, TnA, and RAF decided to agress our party and there was bloodshed. Our force was able to claim the field and most of the enemy perished. We had not expected to meet resistance from this group after the last war." The Shogun nodded, "Yes I had thought they had the bloodlust beaten out of them the last time they stood before our might. Tell Isoroku to extend patrols out of Eastern Umbra again and deep in the mountains. Keep tabs on this band incase they try to mount some sort of uprising. Go now and leave me to my work." Weinan turned to go ... why Isoroku Yamamoto to lead the patrols ... the man was less sane then the Shogun. Alas it was not his task to ask such questions just to follow orders so he headed to Yamatown to locate the ex-pirate.
