The characters insist on staying the night and proceed to investigate as much as they can under the watchful eye of Takashi. After and awkward dinner in the evening the players sleep thru the night and begin to leave in the morning. The Lion Shugenja presses Takashi’s owner and eventually reveals that he is a spider clan bush who is here with a Moho Shugenja.
