Investigate what is going on at a small village and solve the problem if possible
A recent rash of mysterious thefts and property damage has been plaguing a small village in the Land of Rivers. The villagers are a superstitious bunch and suspect that they have somehow angered the guardian spirit of the village and are being plagued by vengeful ghosts, though others disagree and have hired a group of ninja to investigate.
The three ninjas met up to go take on a job investigating ghosts. They headed to the small village and talked with some of the people there, then decided to set up a stake out on top of a building. While they were watching, Ryo spotted three figures moving to the north of town to a grain silo. He, Shinji, and Riku went over to investigate, with Riku serving as the opening distraction. The three inside the silo attacked and Shinji and Ryo joined in. One of their opponents was a seishin hosuto kenjutsu specialist who gave Shinji and Riku quite a lot of difficulty, in addition to his weaker apprentice who pursued Riku. Ryo took on the woman and smashed her through the walls of the silo.
