RE: Path of the Samurai
I am going to re-boot my Edo period Samurai rp, because I can.
The Edo period sees the Era of the Samurai dawn over Japan, thousands of swordsmen hone their techniques in swordsmanship to serve their damiyo and receive the title of "Samurai" and eventually the revered title of Kengo, or Great Swordsman. tornements are held daily to test the skill of the swordsmen horde and wittle the numbers down to the elite few and Dojos open across the land while the forges of artisans blaze day and night to provide the mountain of blades that Japan now demands. Betting matches between swords are held for the chance to obtain a blade of superior quality than your own and reckless swordsmen fight in the dead of night with real blades to test their skills to the limit and live life on the edge of a blade. Edo is the city that boast the largest number of Dojos and Kengo, swordsmen that have honed their skills*to perfection and are sort after by nearly every swordsman in the land to trade blows and knowledge with. However, dojos open in the smallest of towns and the Kengo have been known to wander the lands and simply appear in any dojo at any time. The Kengo are few but command a respect akin to the Damiyos of the land, some wander Japan trading blows and thoughts with people they meet and others open Dojos to formally pass on the knowledge they have.
Women are not left out of this new explosion in the population of Samurai as they can be just as skilled as the average swordsman, there is even a few female Kengo roaming around Edo but they does not bring much attention to this fact and very few people know their identity because while females are generally treated with the same respect as their male counterparts there are those of small mind that may wish to bring her down from her heights.
Catching a ride with a Merchant caravan for individual reasons, everyone will arrive at the town of Hinamizawa where the rapidly risen Kabaru siblings have opened a large Dojo and are accepting people from all across Japan, be it a farmer who has no Bokken to call his own all the way up to the Damiyo's children. These three eccentric but masterful Kengo will teach you well, and with luck you will win the weekly tournament and win the prize of a relocation to Edo, to train with the best Sword-masters Japan has to offer, including Yagyu Jubei and met legendary Artisans such as Gorō Nyūdō Masamune.
Age: (Above 18 but below 35)
Apperence: (Pictures are fine, anime, real life, hell. Even drawn ones are fine)
Bio: (Does not need to be your whole life story, just who you got here and some other things you think are important. As well as how and reasons you joined the caravan)
Strengths: (You quick? strong? sure footed? Have impressive sexual stamina?)
Weaknesses: (You kind of slow? not that strong? find it hard to grasp complex forms? Find your nose bleeding every time a well endowed woman flaunts her sizable assets?)
Stuff: (Anything that is not covered by the others, includes things you have on you or carry around with you. Can be empty if you carry nothing).
Ok, this is a Fantasy rp-because its got a lot of Youkai in it, and the timelines for some of the people I want doesn't quite work, so I changed it- but has deep roots in reality. Basically our world, if the Myths where real. Now, I don't mind a bit of pre-skill with your apps, but if you jack it up to much, you won't be accepted. Why would an experienced swordsman/woman be joining a mountain dojo instead of going to Edo? Thirdly, the legacy of this RP is a lot of killing, some intrege and a momentous amount of sex. I found it to be great fun to Gm with my last set on people, so I hope you will be equally fun to play with.
The Death List: These are the NPCs that have a good chance of killing you if you try to fight them. Everyone else is a fair game mook or red shirt.
Aside from a few obvious spelling and grammatical mistakes, I approve of you using Hinamizawa.
COuldn't think of a japanese sounding town more apt for my plan. And do point them out, I would love your feed back.
And don't try to tell me you where not drawn here by the 'there with be a lot of sex here' part.
I was drawn here by the poor spelling and grammar of a "Dear friend."
