Legend of the Five Rings: Echoes
Blood’s Honor is a notorious pirate ship that superstitious peasants claim it is an avenging spirit. Even the rumor of the vessel in the area sets hardened samurai on edge. It has attacked village and ship alike, and its captain, Ryoko the Red, rarely leaving any survivors.
The truth behind the legend is a bit simpler. Blood’s Honor is a Mantis vessel (though it replaces its white sails with crimson when ready to raid), and Ryoko the Red is, in truth, Kousei (Deceased). His piracy has helped put many a coin in the Mantis’ treasury.
The crew is manned by other Mantis samurai, who are fiercely loyal to Kousei, even more so than to Yoritomo. Kousei has no problem with that.
