The '''Ichiwa-kai''' (一和会) is a Sixth World yakuza syndicate that was formed in 1984 from an internal struggle for succession within the Yamaguchi-gumi, and primarily operates in the Philippines. Having abandoned most of their offices in Japan in the 2010s, the Ichiwa-kai took control of most prosititution in Olangapo, turning the city into a sex tourism hotspot, and have since expanded to Manila and San Fernando. The Ichiwa-kai’s business has its hand in gambling, extractions, and assassination, and encompasses sixty percent of all non-Huk related crime within the Philippines.
I'm Jeff "BaronJ" Phipps, and I'm a FanPro Commando. I've been playing Shadowrun since 1998, and I've been GameMastering since 2000. I've been a commando since the program's inception, and I'm Commando ;)
Wow... strange to think that I've been doing this for that long, but it's the truth. I've got some interesting ideas about Shadowrun, and I try and post about it on the Dumpshock Forums, but a DSWiki? That's cool!
Anyway, anything I say can and will be used against me in the Court of the Internet. I always offer a disclaimer to my work saying that this is what *I* do as a GM. I however am not *your* GM, and if your GM says that I'm full of drek, so be it. He is in charge in his little world, I'm in charge in mine.
Anyway, relax and enjoy the scenery; and don't forget to water your meatbody periodically.
