- Mission Details:
Name: Tracks in the Snow
Participants: Moon Village, Sun Village, Missing Ninja
Type: Plot Mission
Solo: 20 EXP
Group: 25 EXP, 20 Ryo
Details: Trackers and hunters up in the Kellen Mountain Range have started to find massive tracks, foot prints of a creature to large to be any normal animal. They tracks occasionally come down into the plains, but always return up into the snowy mountains. No one quite knows what these tracks are, but whoever made them is big, and fast. Shinobi are being sent up into the mountains to locate these tracks and hopefully identify what has been making them. (You can not find the actually culprit in these missions, just the tracks)
While they had been traveling, Sojiro had been designated as the lead hunter for food. During one of those hunts, he had found a bear and killed it with his bare hands, which he then proceeded to turn into clothing. Sojiro wore fur on his arms and legs to keep him warm in the cold, as well as a fur jacket of sorts. The bear's head had been made into a hood while the rest was wrapped around the upper half of Sojiro, though part of his abdomen was still exposed to the cold, it didn't bother him. There was a light snowfall that was going on around them as they walked, Sojiro's nose picking up on nothing but colder the further they moved through the mountains. As they walked Sojiro would try and break the silence with a simple question, "Have you ever heard the tale of the Scorpion and the Fox?"
