(Day 13, Early Afternoon) Isawa Korihime's Study Circle FINAL

While primarily a place for warriors, the Hundred Stances dojo is not lacking a quiet space for the training of the mind. While the dojo's secret texts cannot be found here, treatises on kenjutsu and other topics (notably history, poetry, theatre, and theology) are curated by Seppun Kurou, a helpful and cheerful shugenja.

Many have lived lives that have left a lasting impact, but few can be said to have achieved anything beyond mortal capability. Still, though...it might be worth a deeper look. I'll have to try to convince the Council to send someone here on a long-term assignment to try to uncover any lingering spiritual influence Oshiro may have."
He nods at her again, a very faint smile on his face. "Hai... of course, equating Oshiro-no-shiryo and Osano Wo no kami would be a mistake of mine. But... thank you for the interest, Isawa-sensei! if that investigation does happen... could I perhaps ask you how I could be informed of the results?"

It had been....an interesting sort of training. Of course, Akodo wanted the Lion to have a mind as sharp as their sword. Yo was going to have to continue to hone his skill in Iaijutsu but it was important to remember that there was more to life than just swords.

He glanced over at Shib Jiro, and nodded to himself.

Definitely more.

The Matsu's unease continued as she moved through her day, and saw all the persistent efforts too...ignore the events of the day before.

She supposed she should look further into her talents, try to find out as much as she could...while she still could. While she still had access to this library. But her mind was elsewhere, and her heart wasn't in it. Instead she researched something far more fundamental: Kharma, and it's relation to Bushido.
It was time for some very hard thinking in her life.

Fortunately that was one of the topics on which the library was well-stocked.

The Tamori nods again, smiling. "Thank you, Isawa-sensei. And thanks for everything again", he says, bowing low again before leaving her to her own work.
