Shadowed Autumn Leaves
A Letter From Otomo Tadenori
Attachment to Shishinza’s Dossier
Greetings, and may the Fortunes guide you,
The sudden death of an Emerald Magistrate is a true tragedy. As you must now be aware, your predecessor, Yasuki Shishinza has been murdered, along with his two yoriki. The particulars of the crime are detailed in the attached report below. It should be considered your principal objective to solve this heinous crime, for it is an affront, not only against Broken Wave City, or the Yasuki Family, but against the Empress herself. The local yakuza are suspected, as well as a local pirate gang known as Hunger and Thirst. Little is known. Fortunately for you, last autumn, Shishinza began writing a guidebook for his eventual replacement. Why he compiled this work at that time I am unsure, though I thank the ancestors for it. I have sent a copy of this manuscript to you, though, you must be made aware that it is only suitable only for the eyes of an Emerald Magistrate or the most trustworthy yoriki. Secrets are held within. With all haste I bid you travel to Broken Wave City and begin your investigations as soon as possible. It is paramount that the authority of the Empress not wane.
