In Lord of the Darkwood, the major players of The Tale of Shikanoko are forced to deal with the consequences expected and unexpected alike of their past reckless actions. Each of them strives to achieve their destiny, but so far the paths they have followed seem to have done nothing but provoke Heaven s displeasure.
