Ways of the Samurai: Journey

γ€ŒTab」



γ€ŒKobayashi Chinatsu-dono is a lady of great renown. Known for her power and discipline in following the lead of her husband, Kobayashi Gendo-dono. She was taken as an example for all the women of the land, and envy for the men. She was a symbol of peace, beauty, obedience, and control.

Until someone destroyed her world.

In a swift raid done by none other than Yousuke Haru-sama, a warlord looking to take control of the province that the Kobayashi household watched over, Lady Chinatsu-dono's family is slaughtered before her eyes. She manages to escape with the help of her loyal retainer, Kohaku-san, along with his daughter. Torn by rage, loss, and by the lust for blood, Chinatsu-dono has foresaken the image of peace and beauty in trade for a sea of blood. She herself is not strong enough to hold a sword, but she has plenty of means with which to find those who can. She sends Kohaku-san and his daughter to find her five of the strongest Ronin to join her cause, and the reward she offers is handsome. Along the way the Samurai will face shadow walkers known as Shinobi, hired swordsmen to take them down, and the cunning and cruel Warlord Yousuke Haru, who might not be as human as he claims. Another difficulty they face is in fact, one another. Personalities and ways of life clash, along with rivalry and pride.

Are you willing to bathe yourself in
blood?

Wow, this looks like it has loads of potential! Such a simple premise, but so much room for lots to happen! I would definitely like to reserve SOMEONE, though who...?

First of all, what kind of traits are you looking into for the Retainer? He sounds interesting, and I would like to know more about his history before committing to reserving him.

Secondly, when you say that reality-bending is okay, just how far are we talking? Do you the draw the line at running up ten foot walls, or something as ludicrous as magic?

EDIT: And at the risk of losing it before the question is answered, I'll reserve a samurai.

@Kuu + γƒͺンーけゃん - one of the one's being hired by Kohaku? Or one of the ones being hired by Lord Yousuke?

@Eskay- Thank you! I wanted to keep the road to our end goal open ended, but still have a ton of things planned, so it's gonna be like a choose our own poison kind of thing. I also wanted to give everyone the chance to be able to throw in their two cents and incorterate some things they want to see in the plot :P so yep, lots of ways this could go.

Reality bending for here = the presence of Yokai and maybe some chi abilities that we can learn later on- that's a big maybe though. No running up ten foot walls but definitely some acrobatic feats maybe? Think samurai champloo in terms of movements.

I will pm you right now about Kohaku-dono!

Mmm... I'd probably have to say Kohaku if that's fine //shot (Many people are probably going to ask for that...)

EDIT: Or, one of both if possible? I think it may be interesting to play an opposition role once in a while... But if only one, I'd have to go with Kohaku please OuO

no problem!

I feel compelled to mention that yokai are myth to the scrutinous people of japan in this rp (well in reality too but...) and few people believe they exist- like ghosts or something like that

I would like one that is hired by Kohaku please. Also are female samurai acceptable? I know they are few and far between in actual Japanese history, but I do believe there were a few.

Female warriors who held katana actually came mostly before the concept of samurai came forward. And afterwards there is debate whether they were considered samurai or not, it's messy, but I have to say maybe I suppose- sell me on it, create a quality character and we'll see. Kohaku's daughter, Kana, does hold a sword but she isn't considered Samurai or Ronin. SO if I have a character like that I should allow at least one more right? Go for it. But I'll only be accepting one more female Ronin. They aren't supposed to be common at all.

I changed the slots for samurai to ronin everyone- since it's more accurate and less confusing. Ronin were swords for hire, masterless samurai- and keep in mind that they did not have the best of reputations and had a wide range in character. Civilians tend to er on the side of caution with them though, you never know with a loose sword swinger.

You can reserve more than one, but keep in mind I might not accept an application so if someone who reserved submitted and their form was rejected then that slot is up for grabs

I encourage taking more than one character because that way we can have character death in the rp without booting an rper.

so basically what I'm saying is don't be afraid to send in an application even if all the slots are taken, which so far they aren't so you're all in the clear

Umm... I have a request if I may raise my hand xD

About that female ronin, I was thinking of making my second character (The one hired by Yousuke) as a female who was married to a samurai, which carried on through her children and herself if that is alright. If not, that's fine! I can make that one a male also if needed!

Would have found interesting to make a female samurai (or onna-bugeisha, never really knew if that was the correct term) for a change, but meh, too much of a hassle to compete for it.

Could I reserve one of the Ronin hired by Kohaku and a Shinobi? Probably will start with the Shinobi.
