In Conquest of the month 163 you are Tokugawa. You rule over the empire of Japan, who are Militaristic, Religious, and already know The Wheel and Ceremonial Burial.
While worshiping in the Shinto shrine, Tokugawa felt the spirits of the ancestors all around him. He was there before dawn because of a dream he had that felt important but one he couldn't remember.
