Stamina Roll to Resist Seasickness (Stam 3 v. TN 15): 3d10o10k3 15

The first morning at sea, Anzai felt himself beginning to resist the rocking motion of the ship. He felt honored to find himself on the Imperial flagship. Already having made his way through the foreign sailors, practicing his Merenae, he knew he still had to find a way to pull his weight. So that first morning, he awoke early, to attend the drills of the marines aboard, the traditionalists.

Don Zabieru had suggested he learn how to fight, and especially with the goal of one day visiting Merenae, it may be useful. His movements were... not as graceful as one would think. He began training with them, practicing how to repel boarding parties. Enjoying the camaraderie of the warriors aboard.

Who knew, he might even impress Kakita-san.

Edogawa was on deck, making certain things were properly underway. He chatted a bit with the Merenaese, enjoying himself so far. Nari and Lopez stood with him, both were similarly in good spirits.

Upon the ending of the training regimen, Anzai looked about the deck. He spotted the first officer, the son of Miya Odorihime. He remembered her final words from their last meeting, and steeled himself. Walking up to the man, and his companions, the Scorpion offered a bow.

"Miya-sama. We have not met formally. Shosoru Anzai. I'm friends with your sister, via correspondence. You've built a beautiful ship. I'm grateful that I can take part of the voyage aboard her. And to practice my Merenae with the crew." His On was perfect, his enthusiasm tempered by practice. His miscolored eyes affixed themselves on the other man.

"What do you think we will find out there?"

"A lot of water." he grinned. "For now, at least. Once the mainland has faded beyond the horizon, we'll only have the sea. Hopefully, we'll see something more exciting, dolphins, whales, sharks, maybe something more unexpected."

The Tortoise was at home at high sea; he strolled confidently, joking with the sailors and oozing his charisma everywhere he went. He was clearly proud to be the captain of the flagship through a part of him realized it had been a mixed blessing. It would be difficult to conduct himself as he would while aboard Mercy as the presence of the Son of Heavens impeded certain aspects of his command of surging; the fact that he didn't bring a priest to the Vengeful Sea had been particularly unpopular among some of the most pious members of his crew.

Yet these thoughts faded quickly when he noticed, with mild amusement, as the Scorpion tried to become a diestro.

"I see my words instilled trepidation in you Shosuro-san," he joked as he approached the two men. "Perhaps you'll be a half decent diestro by the end of this journey."

"Of course. Something that we can bring back to showcase the worth of our endeavor." He looked out to the sea for a moment, matching the other man's grin, before returning back. Catching the approaching Tortoise, he bowed to him as well. "Don Zabieru. Well, it would not do if I couldn't pull my weight. All hands will be needed should the unthinkable occur. The weapons of your Merenae allies are... very interesting." He had noticed that the Miya also wore one.

Maybe a slight hint of jealousy that he did not posses such an elegant weapon, though he didn't let it show upon his features.

"I cannot imagine the pressure upon the both of you, with the Prince and his retinue aboard. The eyes of all the Empire upon our vessel, we'll have to ensure that they see only splendor."

"Oh yes," he laughed and gazed towards some of the sailors; the cadre of seasoned seaman that had come with the Tortoise. "My gudari are a formidable deterrent of would be enemies."

"But it is refreshing to see you in your journey of self-improvement."

"As long as the ships hold together, which they will, I have contributed to our success." The Miya shrugged. "Any additional pressures are easier to manage, knowing that."

"They will hold Miya-san," he smiled and stepped hard on the floor. "Solid construction. You show your Mereneese influences."

"The design combines Merenaese and Rokugani craftsmanship." He ran his hand along the rail. "I like to think they are stronger together."

Anzai didn't quite understand everything that Edogawa had aaid, but the combination of the languages got the point across. He smiled slightly, looking between the two men.

"Certainly wouldn't do to remain stagnant." A slight laugh, then a nod about stronger together. "Imagine a whole armada of ships such as these..."

"It would certainly be fearsome but," he looked into the distance. "Woefully small and unequiped when compared to some of the naval powers out there."

"We must bide our time Shosuro-san. Conquest will come."

"Part of why we are out here, is to learn." the Miya nodded. "And, progress."

He smirked at his words and leaned against the rail.

"Why do we learn? Miya-san? Shosuro-san?"
