Corruption In Kyoudai Misuteru Mura

Corruption In Kyoudai Misuteru Mura is an adventure set in the small village of Kyoudai Misuteru Mura, located just off of the main route through Beiden Pass. It is set in the winter of year 1129 and 1130 IC.

The adventure concerns a group who enter the village hoping to get through the pass just before winter sets in. The town is shortly cut off from the roads and travel becomes impossible. As the strangers begin to discover the corrupt power of the local magistrate, they must attempt to keep the peace before the people of the village destroy each other.

History: Years ago, he fell in love with a girl who did not accept his advances. A terrible accident occured and he killed the girl in a fit of rage. He had moved from his original town to find a new life in Beiden. Beacuse of his appearance, Goe had trouble in this new environment, but a chance encounter with a thug named Jiochi gave Goe a foot hold in the local criminal element.
Later, when Satsukawa Iji came to Beiden looking for enforcers, Goe joined Jiochi in his journey to Kyoudai Misuteru Mura. Asano has forgiven Goe's past crimes in exchange for his servitude.
Over the years, Goe has become more sinical and unkind, but he will always have a spark for kindness to women, as he regrets his act with all his heart.
Image: Goe is massivly huge. He dresses in dark colors and usually wears his chains around his waist and chest.
Role-playing: Many people believe Goe is stupid and he does nothing to detour this thinking. In reality, Goe is intelligent, though lacking in formal schooling. Once Goe makes up his mind on something, no force on heaven or earth will change his mind. He is quick to anger, but hates his own violent tendancies. He wants to be the good guy, but only the bad guys give him jobs and kindness. Jiochi is there at every turn to steer him toward villany.

The oyabun, or boss, is created in this case as a normal PC. Both Asano and Fan belong to formal schools and gain the benefits thereof. They begin the creation process normally, and gain an additional 100 xp to bump them up to rank 3.

The enforcers are the elite of the gang. In both groups there are two. These use the normal peasant creation rules in 3rd edition. they recieve an additional 50 xp to bump them to rank 2.

The loyalists are members truely devoted to their gang's cause, but not as powerful or skillful as the enforcers. They use the normal peasent creation rules.

Henchmen are average thug no-names there for having the crap kicked out of them without any emotional complications for the PCs. These use the ashigaru creation runes from Way of the Wolf.
