    A group of friends and me read from this book. When I woke up the next day I was here. I have no idea who I am, What I do or who I know. My first instinct was to keep it secret because... I mean it sounds crazy to me and I know it's true. Plus it would limit the shock on people who knew the person I became.

    She reaches up as if she's going to slap you. "No..you're not him. There's no point in slapping you. You lied to me yes, but you did what you thought was best to the best of your abilities." She lowers her hand but still looks cross. "But...I can't shake it...I still have feelings for you..the other you.." she hugs herself sadly.

    She looks sad, and then suddenly kisses you on the lips. She then breaks the kiss. "You kiss like he did...he's in you...I can feel it..." She takes your hand. "I'm not going to hold you to his promise to marry me. Our childhood promise, but will you please try a relationship with me?" She looks heartbroken almost.

    I can't marry you Mana I don't know.

    When the others arrive Danil opens the discussion (over dinner) with his slightly underwhelming report.

    "I've been over my House finances and even with the best management, I'll only be able to secure a few golds a week. If you guys have things to do in Oda, I can spend the time spreading word and trying to raise a little coin, but for myself, I'd be in favor of moving out as soon as possible.

    One other idea I had, though. Lucas, you mentioned something about making magic items. Would it be possible to make items using my magic, if I helped? Healing potions and stuff of that sort."

    "If you learn how to do these... yes, I can make only one item at the time anyway... You could help me with specific items though... I could save some money on spells needed for crafting. It would be only needed if you wanted me to craft items for any of us. If it is for earning money, I think that cloaks of resistance are a good source of money and I have the spells needed for it...
    Although, if anyone was able to lend me... 150 gold, I would be able to earn a lot more daily, as I wouldn't need to borrow resources every time...
    If we were to leave tomorrow it wouldn't make any difference. I won't do much crafting while travelling.
    ...
    ... at least not until I get some specific... tools...


    Mori... ow sorry, Patricia, could you tell us how much time do you need for your research?"
    He answers Danil's question in a tone... like he was a teacher during a lecture... probably the influence of this world's experience...
    Then he turns to Patricia, with a bit of concern and waits for the answer...

    Danil raises his hand. "I'll lend you up to 450 gold, but I'll be wanting a cut of the profits in that case. And I was mainly thinking of building up more healing energies. I can't hold much of God's power at once yet, and being able to brew potions or prepare wands or whatever else would be a big help."

    Patricia blushes when you address her. "It depends, I can easily get basic info on the Lords, but if you want more detailed stuff I'll need to research them one at a time." She's wearing a formal dress, as although he's a minor lord, there are standards for university students. You can tell she's not used to this yet.

    "We would probably need detailed information... Starting with Tokugawa? The one with Dragon Princess...

    Slight confusion on his face "16 days per lord, or would it cover all of them? And if you choose to travel, it doesn't mean you need to fight... Don't you want to see other places in this world? Meet other lords?" He asks somehow excited about the idea.

    "So, we are staying here for 16 days? ... sounds like a long time... Patricia, could you focus on every Lord, whose lands are east from here? We would get information about the west half on our way back. We could set off in a week this way..." He says after few minutes of quiet thinking, then turns to others.

    "A week... it should be just enough to prepare... What do you think?"

    I would also suggest to skip this week, everyone would just list their money-gathering actions etc.
    Maybe Zman would want to talk to his squire, other than that we are probably ready... (tell me if I am wrong)

    "Just some thoughts on strategy. It seems to me that the four most important houses for the conquest phase of our campaign are Hojo (for the paladins), Miko (for the clerics), Tangshima (firearms would be a huge advantage), and Shimazu (to get together enough juice and lore to figure out how to permanently close the portal). The settlement phase will require mostly Asakura and Ashikaga."

    I can talk to Mana about shipping belts to other cities. By Increasing the size of the market we won't oversaturate this one and may get a better price in towns where there are fewer crafters.

    All while during the meal Patricia is acting weird. Patricia will start doing subtle feminine things occasionally, then go right back to acting like Mori. Occasionally saying weird things that would only make sense from a feminine side of things, you think she/he might be experiencing feedback, and you're not sure if it's just she who's affected or whether you might eventually start experiencing it too. Every time you question it, she just nods and says she's fine, apparently not noticing her odd behaviour.

    (Basically imagine she's glitching, similar as if she was programmed wrong)

    Danil's activities over the next week are mostly quite simple, and devoted to scraping out the extra resources he wants. He pulls complex tricks with investments and interest rates to free up coin for his long-term use, he sells a little of his healing energy to raise extra funds, and he casually mentions the Takuga project.

    His one major side project is to make contact with Lee, and to that end he drops by the Cafe every day at least once.

    Taking ten on my Profession check nets me 8 gp at the end of the week. Selling one CLW per day is another 56 gp, and I don't know how much a CMiW would sell for, so I'll fill that in when I know. If I meet Lee at any of these visits, tell me and I'll RP it from there.
