Nihongi ~ The Daughters of Mara

The Second Daugther - One | Two | Three | Four | Five | Six | Seven | Eight | Nine | Ten

(08-13-1998) This campaign is currently in abeyance (again) due to Tom's massive deadline time crunch.

Nihongi is my Micea-system Japanese / Samurai campaign (currently running) with the Girl Team. It is set in late Warring States Japan (1715's). Our heroes are a band of women Samurai -- their family has had only daughters for generations and has been forced to make do with the girl-children being raised as men -- who have been summoned home to resolve a mystery: all of the men in their home valley have disappeared.

Previous Nihongi adventures were The Wrath of Shoku-Dosha and The City of Ghosts, which were Boy Team adventures.

The action is set (mostly) in the mountains of Shinano province in north-eastern Honshu.

Here's a copy of the Character Sheet we use (in Excel97).

Girl Team is composed of:

Melissa Giffords
