    Here we go!

    In the Pokémon world of Ransei, an ancient Japan/China inspired Pokeworld far from the one we know, it has been seven years since a young girl named Taki united what was then seventeen kingdoms, awakened Arceus, and defeated the notorious warlord Nobunaga.

    In the seven years that have passed since Taki's journey, an eighteenth kingdom was discovered--the fairy type nation of Hikari. In addition, Nobunaga's remains were bound by eighteen jewels, to prevent evil from reviving Nobunaga.

    But that hasn't stopped some evil sects from trying to revive Nobunaga. One of them, the notorious Black Raikou sect, is only the latest to try.

    Horrified at what would become of Ransei if Nobunaga was revived, Taki instructed her four most trusted guardians--Ash, of the Red Thunder school of yumidou, Misty, of the Sapphire Sky school of swords; Brock; a mystic of the path of Shaymin who can channel magic through his music; and Serena, of the Golden Delphox school of spirit dancers--to find heroes worthy enough to undertake the long and dangerous journey to stop the Black Raikou Sect.

    Ash, Misty, Brock, and Serena began their search in Taki's hometown of Nijimachi, not far from the Rainbow Manor where they and Taki lived. Little did they know that they would not have to go far in finding heroes to help them.

    A young boy with raven black hair, a loose green yukata and a yellow scarf jumped towards a random tree and plucked off one of its branches. "Alright Treecko, time for us to check this town for any Black Raikous," Hayashi grinned as he waved the newly-made staff around. A small green gecko-like creature climbed onto his back and the boy quickly dashed into the town.

    Thankfully, there were no sign of the Black Raikous. There were signs posted reminding people to watch for them.

    In the city square, a throng of children crowded at the feet of a brown haired boy wearing a majestic green robe. Brock was well known around Nijimachi for being a skilled harpist, and teacher to the children of Nijimachi. But there were lessons to be learned in the thrilling tales and beautiful songs he performed--and quite possibly a clue to the Black Raikous.

    "I understand that father is too sick for this, but still, this is almost too much." A woman complained to no one in particular as she entered Nijimachi, hauling a large, woven basket across her back, which was currently empty.

    It was a very odd trip for Akashi as well, as this was a fair ways off from her current residence in Fontaine. Usually, her father made these kinds of long-distance trips, but as he was ill, she was here now, since she was the sole child of her family, and her mother needed to tend to her father. She was supposed to meet with their usual vendor to purchase food for their family, as well as visit the local doctor and hope that they have something to help her father with his illness. Sighing, Akashi proceeded down the road, going to where her father had instructed her to go to find their family's grocery vendor.

    (which of Taki's four attendants would your character rather encounter? Ash, Misty, Brock, or Serena?)

    (I apologize for taking so long. I forgot to turn the notifications on)

    "Thanks again for allowing me to work at your place, Madame." Mushi Muyoku thanked, as the kind eldery woman, waved him goodbye.

    Making his way towards the public garden, he counted his hard earned change. It wasnt much, but it allowed him to make a living. Once at the park, he decided to walk around and observe nature, admiring the scenery.

    (Misty would not be out practicing in front of an audience--she is aware she might attract unwanted attention this way. The group can safely play music/do storytelling/dance before an audience because any Black Raikous or other evil sects would write them off as a kaitan, and not worth their time to bother)

    Misty, probably. Considering she's going to be in the market district anyway.

    In the market district, an orange haired swordswoman perused the different shops and stalls for supplies. If she was going to search for heroes, it was best to be prepared, in case she had to venture outside Nijimachi.

    Her sword was concealed behind a tikin case--the three stringed fiddle of Ransei could also be used to lend her an impromptu disguise as a kaitan, so as not to arouse the Black Raikous, their allies, or Nobunaga sympathizers to what she was doing.

    Once Muyoku was done admiring with the garden, he decided to make his way to the theater district. He enjoyed spending his spare time walking around the area and observing others as they publicly perform. Once there, he began to wander around, watching as others publicly express their arts and crafts. While wandering around, something got his attention. It was the sound of a flute, that seems to have distracted him. Following the direction of the sound, he managed to find the flute player. It was a black haired kid, who seemed to be playing the flute all by himself.

    Muyoku decided to stay nearby, and continue to listen to his song. Finding a nearby bench, he sat down and decided to lose himself to the sound of the flute. Once the song ended, he couldn't help but smile at the flute player. While he wasn't the best at it, it was enough to want to continue to listen to it. Wanting to tip the flute player, he searched his pockets. Finding his hard earned change, he took a few out and tipped the flute player, thanking him for his music.

    What Ash is playing as you depart)

    The clinks of coins in a cup alerted Ash that someone had left a tip for his performance. "Thank you." he smiled to the navy blue haired traveler that had left a few coins in the glass. Being a theater buff and a passionate actor when he was not attending to Taki, Ash was well known as a master of the flute, as well as many heroic roles in the community theater to his credit.

    After thinking a moment for another tune to play, he started the lullaby-like tune of "The Moon over Nijimachi". What many of the passersby did not see was the majestic bow concealed by the empty flute case--a sign this boy was a very skilled yumidou, a magical knight trained in the bow.

    Hayashi and his Pokémon watched the red-clad fluteplayer with curiosity as he talked with the navy-haired man. More specifically the boy focused on the flute case, which had a strange vibe around it. Deciding to check it out he moved towards the raven as he playfully walked in rhythm to the music.

    The boy's bow was well designed, with flame-like designs on the limbs, and thunderbolt designs near the grip. It had apparently seen many a battle, but any wear and tear was not obvious.

    Akashi, after getting turned around a few times and finally having to ask directions, found the market district eventually. A bustling area in the city, with vendors screaming over the crowds, attempting to lure someone in to buy their wares. Readjusting the basket on her back, she walked down the street, ignoring the calls that were definitely sent her way as she tried to remember which was her families vendor.

    Finally, after getting checking on several stalls, she finally found what she was looking for, a simple inset building with a green shade that has faded drastically to a near beige due to exposure to the elements. She walked up to the stall, only to find someone was already ordering from the shop. A kaitan, no less, who she remembered had performed for her a couple of times when she was younger. Deciding that a few more minutes wouldn't kill her, she decided to wait behind the woman and let her finish her business.

    "Thank you." Misty replied as she received the food and medicine for what she figured would be a long journey. Now that she had her supplies, she could reunite with Brock and Serena near the city square. Failing that, she could find Ash and jam with him--many times, the flute, the harp, and the tikin were called "the friends of song".

    The merchant behind the stand bowed to the woman, before looking behind her to see his next costumer. Upon spotting the woman, his expression brightened. "Well now. Is that you, Akashi?"

    The woman nodded. "Yes. You...know me?"

    The man gave a quick laugh. "'Course I know you. I remember your father bringing you here when you were still living in Avia, an' he's always been one o' my best customers." Akashi thought hard, and vaguely remembered being carted across the country to join her father. Though, she didn't remember meeting this man, he obviously remembered meeting her. "Where is he, anyway? Something must've happened to have you come here in his stead."

    Akashi gave the man a light smile. "He's ill, unfortunately. Which is why I was wondering if you had some medicine for him, as well as the normal order of food that my father gets when he's here."

    "Of course." The vendor moved to the back and started "By the way, I know you an' your father have probably heard this a million times, but I'm sorry for what happened to you all those years ago. It's frankly terrible that a bunch'a bandits took advantage of the war against Nobunaga to burn your ancestral home to the ground."

    Akashi sighed, her pleasant expression darkened quite severely by his comments. "Yes, well, my father said that no one can change the past, and we're living just fine now."

    "Of course. I understand." The man continued to gather the order, and the two of them fell into a rather uncomfortable silence.

    Back in the city square, Brock and Serena in the process of regaling the children of Nijimachi with a tale of the heroic miko Kanade. "..."Now, Kanade cherished all living things, but she grew very angry when she thought of how many innocent children had been sacrificed to appease the depraved demon." Brock explained over a tense chord. "Mew and Jirachi were just as mad, and they began to discuss how to save the elder's grandchildren, and at the same time slay the demon so no one would ever have to sacrifice a child again."

    "Wow, that's a nice tune you're playin'!" Hayashi complimiented as he sat near the fluteplayer to listen to his song. "Reminds me of the countryside in my home north of here..."

    (assuming Taki lives in Aurora)

    (at the moment, you are in Nijimachi, one of Aurora's major cities)

    The boy smiled as he finished the song. "Thank you--I felt 'The Moon over Nijimachi' would be a palette-cleanser from all the heroic themes and festival tunes I've been playing."

    "Yeah, those are nice too," Hayashi grinned fondly, placing his hands behind his back, his Treecko balancing on top of his staff. "By the way, me and Treecko were looking for a certain group of bad guys, and as you have a weapon I'm guessing you're a warrior and have lots of experience dealing with crooks of all kinds," he added in a serious tone rare for him to use.
