Indulged in a replenishing session of spiritual meditation, the enigmatic Impero sits on the hard wooden floor of his personalized quarters in serene silence. Spiritually augmented by the metaphysical properties of an uncommon dark green smoke birthed by the dimly lit candles scattered across the ceremonially decorated hall, Ishin's vitalizing meditative session is quietly halted by the respectful interruption of the loyal Elder Zaraki. Departing from an enlightening plane of spiritual significance, the Impero's consciousness steadily returns to the physical plane of existence, certain that Zaraki stands before him with invaluable information regarding the targeted mythical weapons and artifacts he so dearly desires. "Ishin-san", the ancient Keijijo Guru began, "I have gathered the information you required for this... quest", he revealed, somewhat concerned about the mysterious Grandmaster's power-hungry tendencies. "All of the information?", Ishin asked, somewhat skeptical, reasonably so given the historical difficulty in uncovering the poorly documented location of the items in discussion. "Yes. The Sharanga bow of Vishnu. The Magatama jewel. The Asi sword. And your main target, the Kusanagi sword".
With a calm nod of approval, Ishin reaches for the iconic Impero Mask, "Where are they?", he asks, putting his legendary alabaster mask on. "The Kusanagi sword is said to be hidden somewhere in Japanese mountain ranges. It is in a large abandoned but lavish imperial palace. The Magatama jewel is there as well. The bow and Asi sword however, are somewhere in India", he explained prior to presenting an ancient scroll before the prodigious Impero. "This map contains information on other items that you may want to consider", Zaraki paused, "Be cautious Ishin-san. Surely you are not the only one who seeks these items of power. There are potentially others who seek them as well. Realistically, you would be fortunate to return with even one of your desired artifacts", Zaraki concluded prior to departing. Having gathered his personalized Keijijo weapons, the masked Grandmaster, equipped with a knowledge-imbued scroll departs. Seizing brief control over the ambient metaphysical energies surrounding Reisho's location, Ishin telepathically reaches the Amazonian fighting genius, Asteria. "Asteria-san, I need your help. Meet with me at the entrance of the Reisho Monastery. You may like what I have to offer".
