Mission Goal: Light the first Bonfire
Description: After a rather incredible series of severe weather had plagued the Southern Islands of Water Country, a new archipelago appeared causing some concern and excitement among the nobility in the Daimyo’s court. Not wishing to risk his noble samurai as an expeditionary force, the Daimyo has instead issued this as a request to his loyal shinobi forces to discover any and all information about the archipelago.
In this first part of Act 1, the team is tasked with landing on the first island and locating the undead asylum. Upon discovery, the ground beneath will collapse leaving the group stranded within the Asylum itself. Locating an exit and beginning the cycle is the only way to escape the horrors within. Enemies are spread throughout the first halls of the asylum and only seem to want the explorers dead.

The dark clouds overhead signaled the end of their journey as Kiyoko stood at the front end of the ship as it traveled closer to the enigmatic islands that had seemingly rose up out of the ocean over the course of a few weeks according to the report. While the storms that surrounded the island weren't necessarily anomalous themselves, the islands that had appeared had apparently not been charted on any map before, even going so far as before the Country of Water had even been founded. Such a fact astounded the many of the cartographers and historians of the court as they had wished to explore the island to discover its secrets, but without the ability to reach the island due to the harsh weather, they could only sit and wait as the request was sent out to the nearby village of Kirigakure to have them check it out. It had taken awhile for someone to actually take the mission, the thought of traveling to some uncharted island wasn't necessarily the most interesting thing that most people could think of, but also the thought of being stranded there because of the weather put even more people off.
Kiyoko herself almost didn't take the mission, but due to the fact that she needed the money after her month long hiatus meant that she had to do something to get back into shape. She was accompanied by a few other shinobi to the island as the Mizukage hadn't wanted to send just one ninja to the island and thus there were several groups who were involved in the scouting mission. She had one or two ninja with her in her group but she wasn't necessarily familiar with any of them aside from the young genin that she had been assigned. The younger ninja had been placed with her due to them being around for the chuunin exams and assuming the mission didn't take up the entire month, it was agreed that the mission would be good training for them as they wouldn't be in the village itself.
