So I had a campaign idea that I was hoping to start up at some point involving the players being the second highest ranked people in an isolated Dragon Clan village. They were not assigned there, but happened to be passing through when winter struck really hard pinning them to the village for the time being.
The campaign would begin with the local lord, a minor dragon or dragonfly dignitary being assassinated and the players finding themselves stuck in a village that needs leadership and looks to them for it since they are suddenly the highest ranking samurai caste in the area and it's too far or risky to reach the nearest fort or palace.
So, even if the party does manage to manage the village and it's problems well and honorably, would they face possible repercussions for allowing their host to die once the passes clear?
Edit: This question really relates to the responsibility of a guest to protect their host and what kind of repercussions could face guests who fail to fulfill that responsibility.
