REN Venge Est Necito

Like my father before me, and his father before him, I have forged my destiny with a blade. My birthright is to conquer and to rule this land. My father died when this right was denied to him. I am Nobutora Takeda. I shall be known as Shôgun.

In the lands of the Yamato, all rule comes from divine right. It is this justification that makes the Emperor the chosen one. To the people of these lands, the words from his mouth are the words of Darden. He is not a priest or a savior, but one who wields supreme power. Only through him can one reach their ambitions.

It was a cold, rainy night as Mineko Oima entered into a large room, almost anxious as to what would happen. Tonight would be the most important night of her life for two reasons, the first was of her guest. Inside the room knelt three men. The one in the center, a large balding man adorned with the finest of silks watched expectedly. He was Kayoh Khali, Emperor of Yamato. To his left was Hiro Kikkawa, commander of the Imperial Guard. To his right was Shintaro Haeko, most loyal servant an emissary to foreign lands. The watched as the Mineko entered, she was their Geisha for the evening, one sent as a gift from an unknown benefactor.

As slow footsteps carried her gracefully, dark clothed men slipped quickly over the walls. Quickly, dozens of these ninjas slipped in, quickly swarming over guards with each step, swarming over the palace. They cut their way through weak men who were dreary from the rain. It was a swift attack, one to butcher and to leave none alive. Even through the rain, fires were set and started quickly, coursing through small guardhouses.

As soon as the fires began to blaze, Mineko realized she was late. Quickly, she pulled a small blade from her hair. As her arm moved back to throw the knife, it was seized. Even for an old man, Kayoh was faster than anyone she ever knew. With an icy grip he squeezed, the knife falling to the ground as he twisted and almost snapped her arm. He looked to Shintaro and spoke harshly “Go and find my son.” Quickly he left as Hiro stood and moved close. The once beautiful Geisha was bleeding at her lip from biting to bear the pain.

Shintaro moved fast. It was not too far to get to the boy’s room, but it was too late. As soon as he entered, hard steel crashed down upon him from above, knocking him cold. A young boy watched silently as strange men entered, faces and bodies covered, blades exposed.

Kayoh’s hand gripped the girl’s face, clenching her jaw as he glared down upon her.

“Do you know who I am girl? I am more than you’d ever expect.” He tossed her upon the ground, her limp body sliding weakly into a wall, her eyes looking up with little strength as he continued. “In Darden’s hands rests a bowl of despair. This despair is from caring for pathetic creatures like yourself. Because he cared for someone like you, he drank from the bowl to keep it from filling. However, this despair changed him. He no longer cares for scum like yourself. It is I who was made to protect his people. Who are you to come and attempt to strike me down? You dare challenge the divine?” He stepped close to her, a knife was pulled from his kimono sleeve. “Justice shall soon be his.”

The Palace gate’s opened and Yari soldiers piled in. Their spears held high as they opened a path. Nobutora entered, that banded armor of his shinning. With heavy steps he walked through the Palace to his destiny. Naginata soldiers followed after him, their heavy armor and blades filling the keep with the sound of marching. Two ninjas stood one to each side of the door he wanted. As soon as he entered, the limp form of the once Emperor flopped upon the ground. The large sword of Hiro was through his back, paralyzing the man. Near by laid the crumpled but still living form of Mineko. Blood gushed from the Emperor’s mouth as those cold eyes glanced upwards.

A mailed hand came and gripped the emperor’s face as Nobutora crouched and pulled him close. “So ends your reign and so begins my glory as Darden’s chosen.” As soon as the words were said, the beaten man put all of his strength into spitting blood upon Nobutora’s chest. Hiro twisted his sword and ended that pathetic man’s life as the Shôgun stood. “Bring me the boy.”

Toshio Khali was dragged in, he stood there silently. Seeing his father upon the ground made his eyes widen but he said nothing. Shintaro’s limp body was dragged in along with the boy. “As heir to this throne, you shall live. But know this, it is I who shall rule. It is through me that you shall have any contact with this world and I shall be Darden’s chosen.” As the Shôgun finished, the boy just stood there, accepting what happened silently. His world had changed, as with all of this land. Only time would tell of the destiny of this boy.

For now, Nobutora took revenge, and his destiny is almost fulfilled. He has claimed his birthright, and now his fist clenches the land. With the heir of Darden’s divine rule under his control, none can challenge him.

The first age this blade has been unsheathed.


Shôgun(GM)- Ruler of the land. The one who has taken the power that only the Emperor had claim to. It is through him that all rules are made. His word is the law, his word is divine. He has the final say to any military or diplomatic action. In time of dire need, an heir apparent will be put into power, taking over reign in order to ensure unity and strength within the guild. An heir will be on chosen from the Daimyo as successor to Takeda.

Daimyo(AGM/Ambassador)- Clan ruler of a territory. Although they come under conflict with each other, all abide by the rule of the Shôgun or the Emperor. They however, have control over their own followers. It is their job to make sure that those below follow all rules from above. They are allowed communication abilities within the guild, but not allowed to override that of their superior. Only those capable of this position will be allowed. Being so close to the top would make this position one a person would have to be careful to hold onto. Any slip and they may find themselves among the peasants.

Iemoto(Diplomat)- Teacher. They are the ones who are in place to make sure that the rules are kept, that orders are followed and that standards are met. It is their job to ensure purity to dictation, that honor is upheld. Many are used as diplomats. As a teacher, only those with knowledge and skill, and those who have proven themselves capable of helping others may reach this spot. It is seen as sacred, for it is the highest position most could dream of an one of great respect.

Kensai(Squad Leader)- The ultimate warrior. Those who have proven to be masters of their craft and can fight by themselves or as leaders. They are masters of combat. Loyalty is not only expected, but essential. To reach this position is to prove your worth to the guild. It is an honor for you to gain this rank, and it is an honor for the guild to have you as a member.

Samurai(Full Member)- Trust warriors. They are men of combat. They are far above Ashigaru and find loyalty through combat. They are the basis of any army. They can be counted upon in times of war.

Ashigaru(Junior Member)- Peasants. They are new and far from combat experienced. They are those without honor or a warrior’s code. They are not trusted and looked down upon by many. They cannot be counted upon, or lack skill to fight.
