Don't get me wrong, the idea of Merchants who have found a way to profit from monster hunting is a great one with a lot of potential (and historical precedence), it just didn't match up with the group given the same name in Requiem and Awakening. For one thing in both of those books the group is described as a recent one, not one with centuries of history. Awakening even declared it to be a Silver Ladder front.
    There are things tying the two groups together loosely. But they're not the same. The Hunters did not become a modern corporation.

    I'm not going to spill it here. But think of it like the Knights Templar and the Freemasons. Sure, there are some associations, iconography, and other ties. But, they're not the same.

    Things to explore if we ever get a Tokyo Chronicles book.

    Also, it's not a Silver Ladder Front, the Silver Ladder just has a guy who is in the board of directors.

    ​I would have liked something of an explanation of how the group came from the Hunter group to a Ladder one that does business with Vampires.
    ​The Bijin and Miko groups both fit very well with Japanese history and society, again with lots of potential uses.
    ​I was surprised, especially with the Shogun supporting the hunt, that there were no Ninja based groups or even the flavor of such for groups like the Bajin.
    ​I too have been considering a Tokyo chronicle, if I could just figure out a good way to run it in both modern and ancient time periods. Perhaps I need to dig a well?

    Fallen Blossoms is among my favorite Dark Eras- the setting itself is awesome, and the art is glorious. It is also full with crossover potential, together with story hooks and a great atmosphere of a distinct time and place. Among the compacts presented in the book, the Bijin are my favorite ones, while the Hototogisu's writeup got me all excited (I'm kinda obsessed with those guys- I call them the "new God Machine", that is some setting feature which is always mentioned but its nature isn't really clear). The only downside is that the Gimu didn't got into the finale version of the book, but we did got the Azusa Miko, and we do have their writeup from the blog, so it's not that bad.

    Out of curiosity, what sorts of sea monsters have people invented for the Ama-San to hunt?

    This is the only dark era I've had the privilege of playing so far. It has a lot going for it since Tokyo, Japan gets a section in every single venue. I'm glad that people can buy it individually now as well as in the big hunking doorstop. (I own the big hunking doorstop.)
