In sharp contrast to the last two days, the air is extremely dry, so make sure to keep yourselves hydrated during practice and other activities. Winds are WSW at 7 mph, with gusts of up to 12 mph. Sunrise is at 05:59, sunset at 18:12. The moon rises at 12:09 and does not set until 03:07 tomorrow morning (Day 9)

Rumors
-"The guards at the tower said they saw a large fire around Roaring Thunder Village?"
-"They did indeed."
-"That doesn't bode well for today's resupply expedition. What are we supposed to do if all of their food stores went up in smoke?"
-"We hope that the dried fish and hard rations can keep us going - they weren't as ravaged as the grains were."

-"So there was this ghost, right?"
-"So they say."
-"And she was looking for her baby, yeah?"
-"That's about the size of it."
-"And that baby was Makiko...and her father was a Crane on musha shugyo, who's now dead?"
-"Yep."
-"So, when did we start living in one of Shosuro Hotaka's opium-fever dreams disguised as plays?"

-"Someone is trying very, very hard to push some 'tabi skating' rumor."
-"Probably a trap set by one or another of the sensei, trying to catch students who are slacking off instead of practicing."
-"You said it. If I were a student, I wouldn't set foot anywhere near something like that."

-"Wait, didn't the reports say Makiko had an older brother, in addition to the younger legitimate sister?"
-"Yeah, I think she did say something to that effect."
-"Then...who's the older brother? If their father's dead, I can't imagine he'll stay hidden for long."
-"That's assuming he knows that he's the older brother from Makiko's story. He probably wouldn't. Maybe."
-"Come on! The way things are going, he's probably right here at the dojo, too, just waiting for the right moment!"
-"You need to lay off the sappy pillow books. Or the sake. Probably both."
