About the Onsen

OUR PHILOSOPHY

Uranami Onsen prides itself on being a professional, and traditional onsen while also providing a relaxed environment for our company members and clients. We provide general wellness in the form of shiatsu, acupuncture, divinity, physical healing, mental-clarity and other forms of body & mind wellness.

Kaen no Tsunami; "Tsunami of Flames", is a far-eastern supernatural hunting clan. Born from the need to protect those in need from fiendish threats; Kaen no Tsunami was created. We specifically place our focus upon the threats known as 'yokai' or 'bakemono'. Our goal is to exorcise our lands from malevolent entities. Please note: We do not involve in RP-PVP nor do we target players or player-run free companies.

We all understand we are busy adults, often working long hours (including the FC leader); so we ask that folks be understanding of this aspect as well. We have a no-tolerance for OOC drama and Metagaming/Godmoding/etc. We have a strict 18+ requirement but stress we are NOT an ERP FC.

Kaen no Tsunami

Who We Are: Kaen no Tsunami || A Storm of Sea & Flame
Kaen no Tsunami; "Tsunami of Flames", is a far-eastern supernatural hunting clan. Born from the need to protect those who suffer under fiendish threats; Kaen no Tsunami was created. We specifically place our focus upon the threats known as 'yokai' or 'bakemono'. Our goal is to exorcise our lands from malevolent entities. Please note: We do not involve in RP-PVP nor do we target players or player-run free companies.

Mission Statement:
Kaen no Tsunami, a storm of sea and flame spares no malevolent yokai within its wake. It is our mission to ensure the protection and safety of those affected and devastated by supernatural fiends. Our goal is to thin the presence of vile creatures who would otherwise destroy and kill innocent lives. We will burn and drown all corrupt spirits who stand in our path.

Our History:
Kaen no Tsunami evolved from the Arashi-gumi; the honor-bound Hingashi syndicate. While the Arashi-gumi is our past; many of our beliefs and goals remain the same. Uranami Onsen is and has always been our home. Now that our trade lines have been secured and the subsequent war extinguished between the Empire and the Far East, we can peacefully end this chapter of our lives. Nevertheless our souls still burn bright and our ire now turns to other threats within our community.

What are Bakemono? Yokai?:
Yokai are a collection of various Far-Eastern supernatural creatures. Yokai encompass ghosts, phantoms, apparitions, spirits, demons, and monsters. They may take many forms from a young maiden with a fox-like tail to an umbrella with large eyes, capable of flight. It is said that a yokai is often the remnants of the soul of those who have departed for the lifestream, but yet linger in our world. However there are instances in which an animal or object may take on sentience after 100 years of existing on Hydaelyn. Most times bakemono and yokai are malevolent creatures; there may be some exceptions, often messengers of the Kami. Nevertheless it is our task to return the remnants of the soul to the lifestream.

How Can I Join?:
To join Kaen no Tsunami; one must apply through our hiring manager Mina (How to Join Tab). Once you have placed your application in, we will schedule an appointment with one of our Taicho or the Okami or Daimyo. One does not have to have hunting-experience to join our ranks; but they must participate in some manner. Whether this is as a scholar, healer, fighter, herbalist, priest, etc. it matters not. However during your time with us you will be required to learn at least basic combat to ensure your own safety. We cannot endanger civilians.

Once you have had your interview with one of the Company's leaders; you will be expected to undergo mentorship from one of our Ryoshi. Mentorship lasts approximately 1 month, no less. During this time; you will learn what it is to be a Ryoshi for Kaen no Tsunami; regardless of your experience. Once 1 month has passed; you will be expected to undergo an evaluation conducted by one of our leadership.

Example Mission: You are tasked with going to Yanxia to investigate a kidnapping and eliminate the culprit of the abduction: A Sarugami (wild monkey spirit). Once you have brought back proof of the elimination of the wayward spirit, proven that you are capable of facing such threats; you will be welcome into the family as a Ryoshi.

Can We Hire You?:
Do you have a problematic and mischievous spirit causing problems at your local izakaya? Has your lovely priestess gone missing from your temple? Do you hear strange sounds and see odd phantasms coming from the house down the block? Contact us! We can negotiate terms and handle your wayward spirit issues.

Principles

Respect the Elder-Circle:
Respect the Okami, Daimyo & Taicho. Do not insult, mouth off, or otherwise disrespect the Elders of this clan.

Respect the Chain-of-Command:
It is expected of all Ryoshi to follow the chain-of-command. Should you have a concern or grievance, it is expected of you to speak with your immediate Taicho first before going to the Okami & Daimyo.

Respect your fellow Ryoshi:
Treat your fellow hunters with respect. Not doing so breaks our internal bonds. Infighting and disharmony is strictly forbidden and will result in sharp penalties for those involved.

Insubordination is Not Tolerated.:
Insubordination is defined as; "Insubordination is the act of willfully disobeying an order of one's superior. Refusing to perform an action that is unethical or illegal is not insubordination; neither is refusing to perform an action that is not within the scope of authority of the person issuing the order."

Disrespect & insubordination during a mission can cause confusion at the very least or may get someone seriously injured or killed. If you are given an order it is expected to be followed. Any disapproval may be met after a mission-briefing in private.

No Substance Abuse:
Do not partake of hard-substances such as somnus, milkroot, or other highly-addictive items. These substances cloud the mind and endanger our clan, especially on missions.

No Quarter for Malevolent Yokai:
There is no turning back, no succor, no reform for malevolent spirits. A malevolent yokai is a dangerous yokai. Creatures who are corrupt are not given mercy, save a quick return to the lifestream. Sympathy for such beings endangers our Ryoshi. We will not tolerate any sort of threat to innocent lives.

Offer Succor to Those in Need:
We are to provide succor & aide to those who are in need. The innocent among both Eorzea and Othard are welcome to find shelter among us. The unrighteous shall not be suffered to live for harming innocent lives.

Uphold Honor Always:
When you become a Minarai (initiate) you are expected to uphold honor at all times. Remember, Kaen no Tsunami is our name as is your's. Do not sully it. Should you dishonor the clan, you acknowledge that punishments may ensue.

Hunt Ranks

Kari no Okami & Daimyo:
The Lady & Lord of the Hunt. These are the hunt-masters of the clan. They are responsible for the overall clan. The Okami & Daimyo are the co-owners of the Onsen. At current, Cho Kutsuki & Ira'to Zeerrha are the Lady & Lord of the Hunt. They may accompany missions; but are often focused upon external matters and social obligations.

Taicho:
"The Elder Circle". The Okami & Daimyo's immediate advisers. These individuals act as a council beneath the Okami & Daimyo; ensuring the day to day upkeep within the Clan. Oswin Mercer, Ryunosuke Akutagawa, Udesh Dotharl & Kosei Matsuo are the current Taicho of the clan. The Taicho meet out rules and disciplinary actions. In addition to these tasks; the Taicho are the captains during hunting missions.

Ryoshi:
These individuals make up the bulk of the clan. Hingan for 'hunter' Ryoshi are the primary force of the clan. Those who are within this rank have completed their mentorship. In addition to acting as the main-body of hunters, they mentor and protect the Minarai (apprentices) during missions.

Minarai:
These individuals are the apprentices of the clan. Those who are within this rank have not completed their Hunt-Evaluation and must complete it within 1 month of joining the clan. Their task during this time is to learn what it is to be Ryoshi and must complete at least 1 clan-mission + their evaluation.

Shiren:
These individuals are new hires of the clan & onsen and must receive their in-game interview with one of the Taicho or Okami & Daimyo. Typically a potential FC member will be a 'Shiren' for 1 week while the Elder Circle organizes a date & time for an in-game interview.

Becoming Ryoshi:
To become a Ryoshi for Kaen no Tsunami; one must apply through our hiring manager Mina (How to Join Tab). Once you have placed your application in, we will schedule an appointment with one of our Taicho or the Okami or Daimyo. One does not have to have hunting-experience to join our ranks; but they must participate in some manner. Whether this is as a scholar, healer, fighter, herbalist, priest, etc. it matters not. However during your time with us you will be required to learn at least basic combat to ensure your own safety. We cannot endanger civilians.
