GM: Valor Sign-ups are OPEN Apply here The briefing room fell silent as the top brass of the Imperial Japanese Demon Army convened, over the course of the past several weeks, the Imperial Japanese Demon Army had been building up its forces at its headquarters in Shibuya prefecture - a heavily defended fortress that served as a staging ground for the Demon Army's main forces. Thousands of soldiers gathered at the fortress, with hordes of supplies and equipment being shipped in from almost every other branch in Japan. It was obvious that the Hiragi family, the head family in control of the Imperial Japanese Demon Army, was planning a large-scale operation, gathering more personnel than that has ever been gathered in one place before. High ranking officers of several branches sat in a conference room, staring at one another as General Tenri Hiragi sat at the helm of the massive conference table. "What the hell are we all sitting around here for?! I thought we agreed that we would be fighting a guerilla war against the Vampires! If we mass up like this, they will attack us and wipe us out with one swoop!" One of the commanders shouted, slamming his fist against the table. "That was before we had the Cursed Gears, I think it's time for us to strike back and show the Vampires who the livestock really is!" Another commander shrilled. As the commanders bickered with one another, Lieutenant Colonel Kazaki Sugihara sat amongst the senior officers, waiting for the units to receive their orders. Not even the Lieutenant Colonel knew what was about to happen. Thought it was clear that the Generals would have not organized this if they did not have a major operation already planned. "Silence. All of you." General Tenri Hiragi's commanding voice caused the bickering commanders to hold their tongues, an eerie silence overtaking the room, "I have gathered all of our major fighting forces here in Shibuya for an operation. I will not disclose the details of our operation just yet, but know that war is coming. Soon, we will take the fight to the Vampires so that we may drive them from Japan." Tenri Hiragi remarked with confidence. The commanders began to communicate with each other through hushed whispers. While they have fought a losing battle against the Vampires for several years now, never before had the Japanese Demon Army actually conducted actual war against the Vampires. The very thought of war was unnerving to them. "First, in order to ensure our operation is a success, we must do what we can to thin the enemy's ranks. We must disperse our forces in a way where the Vampires assume that this is not any special operation before we go for the killing blow. As such, small squads must be sent out so that we do not attract attention. Each commander has specific objectives they need to fill - see to it that they get done." As the meeting eventually drew to a close, manila folders containing orders and instructions were passed out to each company leader, one folder making its way into Kazaki Sugihara's hands. As the officers were dismissed, Kazaki Sugihara met one of his couriers outside the hallway, a private that was part of the Moon Demon Company's logistics branch, "I need my team and Yazumi's team to report to our briefing room immediately. Tell them to be prepared for a mission." The Lieutenant Commander ordered. "Of course, sir! I'll inform them right away!" The soldier snapped a salute and ran off to gather the two teams, leaving the Lieutenant Colonel in the hallway... "I wonder what the Hiragi's are planning this time..." Kazaki sighed before turning towards the briefing room.
