On board the Destiny's Bounty, Sensei Wu recieves the following message by falcon-mail:
It seems a long time since I was around, and I sincerely hope you found a new teapot to replace the one I destroyed. I have been honing my wizard skills since, as there have been many practicing opportunities on this mission of yours. I have already found one samurai by the name of Samurai J (or Jordan, as he likes to be called) and he has been of immense help, having already led me to the trident of Samurai Z.
"We have taken it back to my rocket-powered RV, and are trying to figure out how it helps us find the next samurai.
"So far, we have no clue. Send the ninjas my regards,
Jordan; So what do you think?
Zam; I think I should have added "P.S. Feed the falcon."
Jordan; No, about the trident! Do you think there's a map inside or something?
Zam; Don't think so. It looks pretty seamless...
Jordan; Well, I'm getting fed up with this. And I think it's staring at me.
Zam; Maybe it's the eyes...
Jordan; Don't just sit there, you stupid trident, do something! *smack*
Jordan; Wait a minute...
Jordan; The trident! It always points the same way!
Zam; So if we follow the point, we'll find him?
Jordan; Yes! Exactly!
Zam; Because that's not how it works.
Jordan; Come again?
Zam; It just occurred to me. This weapon is a weapon that will return to it owner like our weapons will, right?
Zam; That's most likely the cause of its compass-like behavior, right?
Zam; Well, I'd be rather put off it my weapon returned to me pointy-side first, wouldn't you?
Jordan; So we follow the handle?
Zam; Now you're talking.
Zam; Let's get some rest. Tomorrow might be awesome.
