Hills of Silver Ruins (8)

I've posted chapter 8 (book 1) of Hills of Silver Ruins, a Pitch Black Moon.

Kaikyaku (海客) are people from this world who are transported by shoku across the Kyokai (虚海), the Sea of Nothingness, from Japan. Sankyaku (山客) come across the Adamantine Mountains from China, known in the Twelve Kingdoms as Kunlun (崑崙), the name of a mountain range in central China. Analogous to Hourai, Kunlun is also a mythical mountain said to be a Taoist paradise.

I wonder if that general could be a major character in all of this...after all, wasn't the Emperor a former key general of the royal army?

I've updated the translation to better reflect the text, which is more subtle about who the "master" is.

The "master" is Gyouso -don't know if I wrote it well-, I'm sure it's him
