Interesting. So basically doesthe Maeda family only care about their pride?
@paladin: The Maeda family will not contact you, they lost the crest fair and square, and they are possibly more pissed on Taiyou (if you take the body to them they will reject it) than Daisuke.
I've got the feeling they won't be that glad for Daisuke, but rejecting Taiyou's corpse?...wow
But I also thought they woud never allow their ancestral power to just slip away. Meaning the Maedas would force Daisuke to work for them or otherwise attempting to tie him to the family.
He's probably in Kyoto, at the Ebisu headquarters.
I already thought about who is going to contact (depends on which city Daisuke is in) him about the crest, there are other 8 Guardians, so one of them will contact your character.
Anyways, I explain you the simple story behind Daisuke's activities.
Since Taiyou never revealed his name (and potentially had no papers for identification), the Ebisu burried him as a nameless hero. Daisuke of course didn't like that. To find Taiyou's family and also to uncover his newfound power, Daisuke was investigating about these mysterious Crest Bearers.
After 2months and 6 days he's about to put the picture together and contact one of the Crest Bearers...in whatever fashion (heavily depending on the circumstances of the RP).
For example I'm planning to save Taiyou's brother from whatever people are trying to get him.
I've being planning this thread since December, I covered all the bases, and even made story hooks for any new player in the forum if they wanted to participate. And for older and sporadic players that appear from time to time...
Yeah, that sadly includes me.
