Thank you for your letter. I would point out that it is tough for me to
decide what to do with the Agasha. Their original noble motivations and
good intent were wiped out like so much of the storyline by the HDM. As of
right now I think they look terrible for leaving noble Hitomi and joining a
Clan trafficing with Maho and Bloodspeakers. I would like to point out that
the Family Daimyo is Tamori-sama, not Gennai. So basically you didn't even
follow you Clan nor Family Daimyo :(.
Personally I do not want you to kill youself, but to come back like others
did. Bring as many Agasha as you can with you. I believe that if we start
having a bunch of Agasha on this list, we may start getting some new
recruits/old exp vets under Tamori-sama again for the CCG. Well that is
what I can hope for isn't it?
