Ok, /Quest/, I am new to this, but I've wanted to give this a try for a while, yada yada yada...

To Buisness!

Being a Rorouni, or a wandering samurai, you have reached one of the many difficulties that go with your trade:

There is a fork in the road.

Which way do you go?

The sign seems to have been very vague. It may have deserved its slaying. It does not help you in the least in deciding where to go.

Right it is! After a few hours of traveling, the sun seems to be heading down. It will probably set in an hour or so. There seems to be a structure lurking in the distance.

You decide it's better to be safe than sorry, and you approach the windmill cautiously. Hand on your hilt, eyes wary, you stalk up to the door. taking a quick check of your surroundings you-

What the fuck is that!?

This is a strange turn of events. What is your next move, /Quest/?
No. 1031 ID: f373c2

Castles mean guards, and I'd prefer not to risk trouble with guards.

Knock on the windmill's door. If no one answers, go inside and look around.

Head on in. Maybe you can find some work or a quest. If not, maybe you could steal something,

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

Deciding that it would be better to check out your current surroundings before moving on, you decide to check the windmill.

Knocking on the door seems to have had no effect, so in you g-...oh.

Hmmm. One odd event after another today, it seems. There has been a death here, but there is no body...
No. 1191 ID: c80cec

I'm sure our sense of justice is begging us to investigate, but if we are caught snooping around we could be accused of murder!... Damn it all, let's look around anyway. We'll deal with the consequences if and when they come.

The interior of this windmill looks awfully dorfquest. If that's not a coincidence, then I predict that killing that sign sealed our fate.

It is blood, but it looks cracked and dried. Whatever happened here happened a long time ago. A blood trail goes to the door, and stops. The body was probably dragged away. You recall it rained yesterday, which would destroy the blood trail out doors, so you are unsure exactly how long ago this crime took place.

While examining, you note that there is an extra piece of wood, in addition to the broken table leg. It is old and worn, as if it has been used to hit many things. Possibly used as a weapon?

Just off screen, there is a door to another part of the windmill.

What oven?
No. 1521 ID: 036360

Well... if this happened a while ago there's no risk of 'us' being blamed for it. Lets look around regardless.

Check the door.

>What kind of samurai leaves something like this as an unknown?
Certainly not a samurai such as you!

It appears the blood stains are as old as those in the other room. The fight must have started here, and continued into the other room.
No. 40283 ID: f4963f

That poster!

Obtain it. Bring it to me. You know it is your destiny.

Also, these sort of blood-stained scenes are pretty good indication of something no good running around. Go ahead and go to the castle, but keep your sword ready at all times.

Not that you wouldn't, being a samurai and all.

The symbol indicates this is a scroll of Ice! The fine print tells me it is some sort of beast. Clearly, it summons an ice kami of some kind.

The box reveals a mundane items, likely those owned by the windmill's previous occupant. The senbei crackers, a pair of glasses, and the healing ointments are the only items of interest.

You feel it! Something terrible and fell is right behind you! You draw your blade, ready to duel to death atop this bridge, suspended over hundreds of feet of nothingness, which is in turn suspended over a cruel bed of sharpened stones and gravel!

No matter! The creature will surely return later. For now, you press onward to the castle. The door is open, so I cautiously peek through.

A foul beast guards this room. You recognize it as an onishiro neko, or White Demon Cat. The name may be redundant, but it is no less fearsome a beast. Their temperaments vary wildly, but thankfully this one appears to be asleep. Should I attempt to attack it, or simply sneak away from it?

This room has two exits and a shrine where one can pray for good fortune. You can also gain the kami's blessing by washing your hands in the holy water of the shrine.

Any Samurai worth their salt can draw at least with some alacrity. Keep your hand near your sheathed sword, but do not otherwise attack it. There is no guarantee it would mean you harm on its own, but many creatures will respond adversely to a threat.

Very well.

As you edge into the room, you notice the impressive suit of Dai-Shogun Armor. A truly wondrous suit.

You are unsure where to proceed. North? East? To the shrine for luck?

>Don't those normally have two tails and necromancy power?
The armor, or the cat?

The only thing special about the armor is its not made for women, so you can't wear it. And the two tailed cat is much smaller and more capricious than the White Demon Cat.

You head north! It takes you to a hall. As you enter the narrow passageway, you see the Ogre King also entering! He seems surprised at your presence!
