Overview

Concerns the aftermath of the Battle of the Platte, specifically the fate of Minotsuna Tano, a leading warlord in the army of Nobunaga-Gaisen (he was also known as Nobunaga the Younger). The bloodletting at that Battle was truly horrific. Ironically, the Urushiol would later find themselves allied with former enemies during the fighting known as The Madness.

After years of wandering Tano settled here and formed what some called the university without people. He crafted them out of the things he found here. The word Nozoimi means “hope” in the Nipponic Dialect.

The part of the story installed here:

Nozoimi

After the carnage of the Battle of the Platte, warlord Minotsuna Tano surrendered his sword to Nobunaga the Younger and wandered for several years until he came to this spot. Here he had a revelation: he would build a college in the wilderness, hewing the structures himself from the forest, braiding ferns into alumni, and the renten dunes into epiphanies. He called this unpeopled place Nozoimi, which is “Hope” in the Nipponic dialect.
