Our heroes in "Ranger's Apprentice: The Emperor of Nihon-Ja" are in the middle of a war in Japan in medieval times. The battle is in between two emperors, one with a giant army that is crushing everything in its path to get to the other emperor, and the other with a few friends who have immense strategical battle tactics and some loyalists. Emperor Shigeru wants to break the social class by giving people like the lumber workers known as Kikori some power and land, but Arisaka is greatly apposed to this. Right now, Arisaka is hunting down Shigeru to kill him and gain the title of emperor so that the social class will never be broken. Right now, our heroes are with Shigeru hiding from Arisaka in a mountain fortress that they will reside in all winter, having the heavy snowfalls as protection. They will be training the 200 Kikori they picked up on their way to the fortress, along with some abandoned, hurt troops that are itching to get their revenge on Arisaka. They will have archers, swordsmen, and much more by combining the fighting strategy of our heroes' land, Arulean, and the emperor's land, Nihon-Ja. They will also be expecting reinforcements from Castle Redmont, as stated in reading log 1. That is all for now, I will put up an update soon. Goodbye!
