Legend of the Five Rings: Shadow Mountain
Stewardess of the Imperial Guard
Ren Yamayuki has been serving the Imperial Guard since she was 5. It has been a hard life, seeing guardsmen constantly come and go, but she has wisdom enough to see how much better, and how much more dignity, she has than those below her.
She gets one night off a week, during which time she always goes into the village for dinner. She takes no more time off, no less, for do the Crab on the Wall get their evenings off? Must she not serve the Empire in her small way? What matter if it is nothing more harrowing than checking the root cellar, and being certain that the chef has not over-cooked the rice?
