Meditation on the Fallen
Brief LEGO Ninja themed vignette with background story.
About this creation
For five years on this date, Ryo Heiyashi of the Grey Clan has journeyed to Seizan Peak to meditate on his late master. Slain in combat from behind, he was branded with the mark of the dishonorable Blaque Clan. The act struck at the heart of his family, village, friends and fellow ninja; in turn, he has sought out the wisest of the wise of the region, trained rigorously, and fought constantly to right the wrongs of the Blaque Clan - except this day.
No, not today, this day is for remembrance. He would have his retribution of his sensei's murderer in due time. Reaching the snow packed peak where his master's ashes now rested (he loved the view so much in life, Ryo saw it fit to entomb him here), he brushed away a layer of snow and folded his cloak down to rest. Lighting a small pyre, Ryo begins his meditation...

I've been really wanting to use some of my not too wide LEGO Ninja collection, so perhaps a little vignette to warm up. I'm not much of a writer, so please excuse the story above for grammar, historical inaccuracies, etc - it's meant to set up the mood and the background.

I intended to go farther with the little story, but I'd rather leave it open-ended for the viewer to interpret. So just like a LEGO playset, YOU determine the rest of the story. (I couldn't help making one action shot at the end, though.)

Thanks in advance for comments and critiques.
