I stood by the empty, broken down gates of Sunagakure no Sato and I peered towards the skyline. The sun had set a few moments ago, offering just a brief glimmer of light to remain in this forsaken desert before I frowned. Although I had returned to find this place nearly deserted, the barest signs of life or aptitude remaining within the walls, I knew that spread throughout the city were surely to be some shinobi who hadn't been wasted, or perhaps there were still some young bloods left within the walls who could be recruited into my Dominion... After all, I knew very well that I would not be able to challenge the entirety of the world by myself. I would need an army within my Dominion, or else it would mean nothing.
But where was I to find such an army? Did I need to go knocking, door to door, to see if there was anyone who was up for the task? I had declared that Sunagakure no Sato was no longer a ninja village, but that did not mean that I did not want to use a shinobi structure when stylizing my armies, and in this day and age, there were very few armies that were as strong as a Shinobi one. Because of that, I decided, I was not going to cast away the original Shinobi titles passed down to use from lore - Genin, Chuunin, Jounin, Sannin, Kazekage - but instead, I was going make them into my own image and structure them towards my own goals.
Although I knew that the situation facing me regarding the lack of an army was a large problem, I also knew that there were other problems to be had, too. The movement of Konohagakure no Sato against Kirigakure no Sato spelled problems for the rest of the world, and nobody seemed to know what had happened. However, based on the time frame, I was willing to bet it had something to do with that giant glowing pillar of light that had suddenly vanished. I needed to know more, however. I simply could not go forward on hunches - I needed solid, undendiable proof, and the only way to get that would be to leave the village for a short while.
There was nobody here that I could trust, and I had effectively abolished the entirety of the old regime, so now might not be the best time to be leaving, and I was aware of that. However, it seemed much more dangerous to allow the outside world to begin to move forward while leaving the Dominion behind. I was very sure that the entirety of my nation would not survive if I did that.
Well, Sunagakure had grown used to silence. I could allow them to experience it again for a short while.What Happened Over There? Part 1.
