And So it Has Come to Pass
<<Heron Flies High Over Land and Weeps<<
The Imperial Capitol, ruined by war and demons and abandoned since the time of the Pearl in Oyster Dynasty, stood silent. The daughter of Shizuru Tomoe of the Mantis Clan, the missing heir of the Sun Dynasty, having lived for 9,999 years after ingesting a piece of the Numinous Treasure Mushroom, had walked the entire face of the Golden Empire and ended her journey at the Imperial Palace. She ascended through the broken portal of the Throne Room, and accompanied by many wise men and aesthetics who had joined her in her endless walking, took her seat in the Emperor’s throne. She immediately renounced her family name and clan, declaring herself the first Jade Empress, of the new Golden Empire. Her words spread quickly through the shattered Imperial delta, and a desperate people took her up as a symbol of hope. Word also spread to the remaining clans and each in turn recognized the wisdom and excellence of Her Highness, Empress Haruka. An era of tired yet hopeful peace settled across the land.
