My PCs have been tooling around in the Ancient Juncture. They uncovered and disrupted a Lotus plot in Wu Zetian's court, and gained two audiences with Her Majesty. In that second meeting, they filled her in on the Chi War, Feng Shui sites, the Netherworld, etc. In another session or two they'll be heading back to the Modern Juncture.
Wu Zetian probably has the resources and ambitions to seize a lot of Feng Shui Sites now that she knows how important they are.
I'd like it to be a Critical Shift, but only if I can figure out ways to make it fun and different enough to be worth the bother. Any suggestions on how the world might be different when they arrive? How would the world transform in and alternate timeline where the Zhou Dynasty had more staying power? How might reality be shaped by Wu Zetian not only purging the conspirators from her court, but also learning the big secrets that make the world run? Please help me brainstorm an interesting new world.
One of the PCs is the rebellious son of an important Ascended lieutenant with mafia connections, so ideas that inconvenience The Lodge and mommy dearest would be extra-appropriate.
