A sight for sore eyes [Entering Country/Requesting Entrance to Village]

Facing northwards out into the sea, Titan’s Keep is the entrance into the great shinobi village of Iwagakure. Not only does it serve as the first line of the defense for the village, but it also serves as the port for the Earth Countries import and export. Based on the delta of a river that spills into the Northern Sea, Titan’s keep is harbor of unique design. A string of bridges connect small islands together, and tie them to the beachhead, where the village gates stand eternal.

A sight for sore eyes [Entering Country/Requesting Entrance to Village]

Sat Sep 29, 2018 12:53 pm

After a few years of sand and caves it was nice to finally feel a cool breeze coupled with the sensation of a solid surface under ones feet. Kurokawa was just going to do her investigation solo and then head home as the one letting her leave had informed her about dire circumstances back in the wind country. Seemed it was the same old conflict that had been brewing since before Kurokawa even got to sand. Back when she went there for the first time she left through this gate to go become a Chuunin and ended up mostly isolated from the other participants for the better part of the trip. At least until she got outside with her then Ancient companion Sahqo Golz whom she had liberated in the trials. She saw it as a he although she didn't really know much about spirit gender but no matter which it was, Golz had chosen to stay in his home region after the exam and Kurokawa had left that internal strife behind, thinking it would resolve eventually. Now it seemed it hadn't.

Just for the nostalgia Kurokawa had chosen to come to the great gate in titans keep first just in case there would still be ninjas in this area keeping up the old rules. She would however stay hidden from any civilians that might be in area as she didn't find the outer village zones to inhabit any of the people she helped back then. That made her think that whatever happened here after she narrowly escaped from being force moved to leaf out of the blue, was not a friendly process in any way. To find the first clue as to what caused the vision she would need to get to the place once holding her place of residence but rather than just jumping the walls she figured peacefully passing through the gate would be a better approach.

Before she even got to the actual gate she would pass by the beach where she was assaulted back when it all went to shit. It looked just like itself, undisturbed by the tides of battle but slightly altered by the tide itself. Seems now that there was less activity here maintaining the coastline had dropped in priority.

I should stop by the hospital as well after this. Back then me and Shi...

As she started to think the name she would get a vision of a six armed figure clad in rags and an ANBU mask. The apparently male individual would have scars and fresh cuts throughout his body and would be breathing heavily as if he had been running for a long time. The vision would show her a clear view of the mask even though she was blind. Yet another vision of a kind she was not used to. The blue eye shining in one eyehole of the mask while the green one would shine from the other made feel nostalgia yet again before it would snap her out of the vision. She would wake up face down in the sand, a cold yet familiar sensation. Not like the hot sands of Suna that burned the skin. As she got up she would start making her way into the village while dusting off the sand.

[I don't know if I still need to request village entry when it comes to an NPC country but regardless of this being a solo endeavour i'd rather add it than get in trouble. This is not some form of village raid.]

It seemed that the rumors were true. The area had been abandoned by the ninjas, which suited Kurokawa just fine. She would then know that any shinobi she might encounter should not be taken as law enforcement and through that given special treatment. The buildings still stood however so people might still be living here. She could not be sure if the residents had changed other than the ones from Shinobi clans, so she might run into familiar faces along the way. Some of them would have moved no doubt and some from leaf would have moved in here in an effort to preserve their way of life by staying near the ruler or government system they were used to.

Regardless of why there were no gate guards and if she would know any of the residents, if there even were anyone living here anymore, she had to go on searching for the source of her visions. From this point on she would have to prepare for a series of visions and memories as she walked through her entire past to find out what happened and why she was seeing things. Hearing things was normal by now as the spirit she had inhabit her body was from here. she could feel that Hemorian felt more at home than ever, but she knew she would have to leave for the Wind country again soon. For now she would try to just enjoy it while it lasted. Just the fact that she could walk through the area without getting sunburned of drag a whole box of sand around in her shoes whilst being in the sun, was one of the best things being here but she could not help but wonder if it was the same in Cloud. Maybe they had a much more cool and rocky environment like here. Maybe the air was thinner and no one lived underground. She had never been and wondered if she would ever go now that she knew a war was waiting for her when she got back.

For now she would pass through the gate unhindered and move towards the Hospital whilst packing away her passport.

[Village/Country entered since there does not seem to be an outer village zone anymore]
[At least 5 days wait and a passport should make this entry legal.]
