The Oda Clan

0 · 251 views · located in Earth

a character in “Civilisations”, as played by Booker_Dewit47

Description

Name (of tribe): the Oda clan

Continent: east Asia, the Island of Hosho
Surroundings: a mix of temperate forests and tropical jungles, as well as being completely surrounded by water, lastly, they have a small spot of tundra due to the Kanto Mountain range to their north.

Personality (of members): The Oda is a warrior tribe, with advanced tactics in combat, such as line formations and charges. Due to their relative seclusion, they have had a large amount of time to invest in to metallurgy and ship building. Therefore, they have access to basic Bronze weapons (Spears, pikes, basic swords) as well as basic ships (Trimness, fishing boats) Being a warrior tribe, they tend to be hostile to most other tribes in their home land and are now looking to expand beyond their island home.
While they are a warrior tribe, they are by no means a group of blood thirsty savages. The people themselves are very well cultured and can even be open minded to other couture as well as tolerant of other religions. Men and women are treated the same in almost every aspect (except in the Military) and offend you will have a women in a spot that would normally be occupied by a man.

They have a small, 200-250 man population, with basic bronze weapons, still mainly using wood and stone on a mass scale. 100 of these people are dedicated soldiers, the rest are part of the working class besides the Imperial family. The soldiers of the Oda are vary self-reliant and can survive on their own or as part of a unit for long periods of time.

Beliefs/Religion: The Oda people believe in the Shinto Pantheon of gods. These gods are used to link aspects of the world around them in nature, ae the wind and sea. The Priestesses of Shinto are held with the highest respect in the besides the Emperor himself.

The Oda could arguably have the base for the first “Real” army in the sense of real due to their structure and tactics. The Standard Oda foot soldier will wield a long pike with a sharpened stone and bronze tip as well as a “Daishoto”, a bronze short sword on their left hip and drawn with their right hand. Next are the “Ronin” or veteran soldiers. These men have been given longer “Saioto” bronze swords and are true swordsmen. They are used as scouts and NCO level commanders over small units. Next, you have “Shinobi” or Ninjas. These soldiers act as the personal assassins and spies of the emperor and are well skilled in the art of stealth and silent combat. However, they do not use heavy leather armor, preferring not to wear it all, and will use bronze “Kunai” knives as a short ranged throwing knife as well as a dagger. Lastly, you have the “Samurai” these warriors act as the personal body guard to the Imperial family and are held with almost as high a regard as the Shinto priestesses and the Emperor himself.
All soldiers of the Oda are taught heavy discipline in the face of the enemy and have a high moral. They have also been taught death before dishonor to the Emperor and will often fight to the death.

So begins...

====================================================================

An Oda scouting party of 15 soldiers land on the coast of the mainland and beach their small boat. Leaving 10 men behind to guard it, the 5 veteran scouts move further inland to investigate the locals. After traveling some distance they come across an unknown tribe of people living in a village. They seem to be celebrating some type of discovery. Waiting until night fall, one of these scouts, the most veteran of them all sneaks in to the village and comes back with a few interesting objects. As they sit at their camp on the beach, the elder soldier inspects the objects the scouts brought with them. Most of them are not new, stone tools, pots, bowls...However, the bow and arrows catch his eye and he asks what the object is. The scout explains as they were observing the tribe during the day and night, the saw the locals use the bow to launch the arrow with such a force as to go through multiple layers of leather and wood. The elder takes this as grim news and orders the soldiers to pack up camp and prepare to head home.

===================================================================================
The voyage home casts off with out any problems, and due to fair weather and good seas, the Oda scouting party makes is back to the island of Honsho in a few weeks time. During the time the scouts were away, the royal council debates on a new matter: the subject of currency. The Oda, up in till this time, have been bartering for their goods. How ever, with the existence of other tribes on the main land the council feels it is time to adopted a universal currency for the Oda as a whole. Thus, after many days, the "Yen" is born. The next subject of debate is what this new "Yen" will be made up of. It is with the return of the scouts that the Oda make a discovery: Iron. While mining for materials needed for the creation of new Bronze arrow tips, the miners have found a new, silver looking the metal that is stronger then the copper they had been mining. A long time and a few broken bronze pick axes later, the miners are able to break off a large chunk of this strange metal and show it to the Royal minister. Upon seeing this new metal and testing it, he finds that not only is is stronger the the bronze and copper tools they have been making, its durability make it useful as a weapon as well. Though small in number, and primitive in design, the first Iron swords are hand made over the next few months and given to the Royal Samurai to use in defense of the royal family. Both the Emperor and his advisers can see great potential in this new metal, but the techniques needed to mass produce Iron tools and weapons is still ahead of them.

It is during this time that the Oda Emperor, having suffered many injuries in his life to the the battle to unite his people and having been ill for some time, dies in his sleep. This puts his 19 year old daughter, the only living heir, on the throne. Seven days of morning is ordered by the new Empress. Among other things, she plans to develop ways to use the new Iron to advance her people.

=====================================================================================

The Oda have gone through what could be called a golden age. After the discovery of iron, all of the swords used by the Royal Samurai were replaced with newer, better designed "Katanas" Iron swords of high craftsmanship and quality and with the samurais training, it makes these swords extremely deadly. On top of that, they have had a population boom, and thus have expanded their reach to the entire island of Honshu and started to fortify the island it self. Edo, the capital city, has not become a small harbor that can facilitate the Odas small fleet of small fishing ships. The Empress, after her fathers death, has shown her self to be a capable leader in all aspects but one: Warfare. Thus, the Oda empress orders a new decree: Ever able body man shall serve two (2) years in the empresses army. Thus, a new dawn of Oda military might begins...
