Meet with the Emerald Champion to verify what we told the Emperor. Voshida is made into a assistant magistrate in order to bring him into the chain of command. Reponsibility for him is given to Fujiko. We are told that the Azumi have made contact and that they have some information they wish to give us. We are told to go meet with tem.
I help out with the Akoda with arranging war planning for dealing with the Horde. Hirami Aki helps out in researching the effects of gunpowder weapons.
There is a small amount of courtly stuff then we are sent down to Crab lands with more magic.
