Note: I am running two campaigns in the same setting and treating them as occurring in different realities with some vague similarities.
Zhang Wan (Bone Breaker): An unpredictable and violent martial expert who is the brother of Zhang San
Bone Breaker set to building up the Ogre Gate Inn to his liking and trying to establish their own sect in the region of Southern Li Fan. He found he needed more funds to achieve his lofty vision (which included an elaborate arena). His aim was to host a tournament in six months. The estimate was three million spades so he travelled to Hu Qin to speak with General Dee (an official he'd developed a working relationship with).

General Dee considered three million a large amount of money to give for the construction of a building. He finally agreed to give 2 million up front based on their past success if Bone Breaker obtained the wall scroll of Hua. On his way back to Li Fan, he spoke with Hai (the still-speaking head of an old lady he found in The Emerald Empire) after she chortled every time he called himself Bone Breaker. He asked what was so funny and she said it was amusing he called himself The Bone Breaker when he didn't even possess the Bone Breaking Stick.
He asked her about the stick, and she said she was unsure where it might be, since she's been underground for centuries but that last she heard it was in the village of Zhainan.
Bone Breaker returned and instructed Iron Cub to send men to find the the Bone Breaking Stick. He decided to personally find the Wall Scroll of Hua on his own but first he went to the Banyan in hopes of recruiting Lady White Blade's Flying Phantoms for a task.
It took some time but he eventually reached Mystic Sword Temple. When he finally secured an audience with Lady White Blade she refused to grant him use of her Flying Phantoms. Bone Breaker then contacted Bronze Master to recruit men, and also spoke with Lady Plum Blossom to form an alliance and attack Mystic Sword Sect.
Working with an intermediary, Bone Breaker then made contact with the head of the Flying Phantoms after learning that they were poorly treated by Lady White Blade. He offered them a much better arrangement with good living conditions and pay if they agreed to betray Lady White Blade during the battle. The leader seemed to agree but suggested they needed more allies.
To enhance their chances of success, Bone Breaker wrote to his allies in Li Fan for back-up and went to Demon Moon headquarters and spoke with Reckless Storm. At first Reckless Storm was enraged that Bone Breaker did not have the Face of Vaagu, but was convinced that it would arrive soon enough and was just being transported (Bone Breaker ordered men to commission a fake in Zun City).
The session ended with him awaiting the arrival of his friends from Li Fan and preparing with Reckless Storm for the attack on Mystic Sword Temple.
