Hear me, loyal Sons and Daughters of the Empire, for I bring dire news.
For these past fifty years, a great and ancient Evil, one which we have all but forgotten, has stirred within the Imperial Capital. Slowly, it has gathered power, cultivated its influence and corrupted the minds of the weak and suggestable; the mad and the power hungry; those who would serve themselves before the Empire. The omens of its taint have been felt in this time, especially in recent years. Ill omens have plagued many a kingdom, and now some stand on the verge of disaster, yet the Imperial Capital does nothing for them?
And at last, on the day of (date), after the ill omen of a sudden and unnatural black storm covering the Imperial City, those fifty years of cultivation took fruit as the true emperor was forced to flee his own city for this most terrible plot, for even highly ranked members of the Imperial Court were not beyond the touch of this slow, festering wound hidden within our most sacred city.
With the Emperor forced to flee for his life, it falls upon us, his loyal Sons and Daughters, to reclaim the Imperial City in His name, and strike down this ancient malevolent power and right the wrong of these past years. For I speak not of the Shadow, of which we all know, but a power we have long since forgotten; that which drove us from our ancestral home two millenia ago. It has not forgotten us so quickly, and it will continue its work, but this time, it fears us. It fears what we can accomplish, Sons and Daughters of the Empire, when we are united. And it fears the knowedge, protection and power we gain from our Saving Kami, those which aided us against it long ago, whose names we have taken for our kingdoms in their honour. It fears a united Empire; and it is for that reason that it works from within the Empire to defeat us.
Do not allow it this victory. We must band together, around the True Emperor, and seek the aid of the Saving Kami. We must rise up against this evil, and cleanse the Imperial Captial of its corruption. With faith as our shield, and justice as our sword, we will prevail. Rise us, Brother and Sisters, and do what is Right and Just for your land and may the saving Kami be with us.
