Character creation:

Avatar:
Name: Itakura Tametane
Gender: Male, even if some would say Oni is more accurate.
Sexuality (IC): Bisexual (The player however will only do scenes in a heterosexual setting, malexmale would be more fade to black)
Acceptable Encounters (OOC): For anything that goes into actual intercourse Heterosexual.  Homosexual is something I could see happening in the story, just nothing I find erotic to write intimately.
Physical Description: Itakura was a man of striking countenance, His hair flowed like a starless night to finish just beyond the blades of his shoulders.  His nose could be called sharp and his smile was one that showed teeth to any who'd have the fortune of seeing it. But it was his eyes that caught attention, the fire that burned in them hungered and devoured any who looked into the near black pools that made one question his sanity.  He was fond of wearing his dark grey Kunate, the Kabuto forged to look like a wicked Oni from locale folklore.   He stood just under six feet tall and carried a neatly trimmed beard that moved from lip to chin without ever touching his cheeks. 
Personal History:  A bandit clan leader in service of the Oshiro Clan Daimyo Midori Oshiro, Itakura is the thirsty blade to his mistresses' cool grace.  He is more mercenary than true samurai retainer, his disreputable deeds a mask for which the self styled Princess can enforce her rule without having to stain the silk of her gown in the process to do so.   Born to a Samurai household Itakura chafed greatly under his fathers guidance, his urge to be his own person free of the stifling class obligations that came with service leading him into becoming a rogue who found his place on the battlefield, using cunning as well as he uses his blade.  It has been only by the discretion of princess Oshiro that he has yet to lose his head for the liberties he has taken with captives and locals both.

One thing I"m going to recommend Jezz is when you have a chance can you add a Played by: X   to the top of the character descriptors you have up.  It just makes things a lot easier for me.  I'm old and fading towards senility.

Managing Post 2 has been terrible so I realized that rather than wasting time fucking with that edit, I'mma just replace the list with links straight to your character.  So if it hasn't already been please post your character in this thread.

Yeah that was one of the fuck-ups I realized I made that highlighted the folly b\c it was way harder to fix than it should've been.  I'd forgotten how hard it is to fiddle w/ large posts.

Probably a good idea, although also the links will take you to the player's post so that can clear some things up.

Liking him quite a bit; It's a shame his allegiances lie with with clan Oshiro, the Aka ka would of welcomed him with open arms.

Always time for swapping allegiances\betrayals\etc, especially once a Clan's been cleared off the board.

Speaking of which we need at least one Yunar Exile.  I abhor DMPCs in these sorts of games or I'd play the faction myself, it just always ends poorly.

We need a way to evangelize the game, if anyone's got ideas feel free to share.

Have you thought any more about balancing for fewwe characters? Attrition will happen as we go anyway, so even if we end up with more characters we may end up shorthanded a month or two from now.

APPLYING FOR HACHISU

Avatar: Name: Tsukiko Sato
Gender: Female
Sexuality (IC): Bi
Acceptable Encounters (OOC): Anything in the limits on O/O and the setting goes, including non-con (prepare for a fight though :) )
Physical Description: Tsukiko is 5 foot 2 (158 centimetres) with an athletic build. She carries a well kempt semi-long hair (reaches lower neck). She has rare blue eyes with a constantly calm and focused gaze about them. Wears a black and blue casual kimono for formal occasions, and a black haori for casual times as well as most times training with her katana. Her battlegear is also quite standard and practical, samurai-styled armour also in clan colours, in open field and an ordinary ninja-garb when there is need for stealth and swiftness.
Personal History: Born to a traditional father, who was a high-ranking officer of the Hachisu armies, who eventually became general. Being the conservative he was, he feared that his only child that happened to become a daughter would not become a good warrior herself to carry on the family tradition. His fears and prejudices were proven unnecessary, as Tsukiko proved an intelligent and fast-learning child at very early on.

Having grown up, she was already of a notable rank for her years and serving loyally under her father. The man however does not seem to live to that glorious death in battle, as he has fallen deathly ill. The upper branch of military is split on those who would want to see one of the older more experienced officers to take up the general's spot, while some being firm believers in the strength of bloodline would have Tsukiko on the title. Either way the desicion falls to the leader of the clan, and whatever the result, Tsukiko has the urgency to prove herself for real.

Physical Description: Her father nicknamed her “ Dorin “ because of how much she looked like a little porcelain doll when she was born. With large brown eyes that captured flecks of emerald green, pale white skin and full pink lips her beauty captured many rumors when she was a guest of the Emperor in his palace. Standing only 5’3 she is found mostly in softer pastel kimonos and favors cherry blossoms.
Personal History: The youngest of two daughters of Arkase and Hoshi Oshiro. Her older sister was born and bred to be the heir of their clan. She was taught the things she needed to know to run things. Emiko was raised to be wed. Her father knew she would be worth more than a year of rice if he could marry her off to another clan for an alliance. As she grew she was trained how to be a good wife. How to sew and sing and perfect the tea ceremony. She learned how to run a household and how to please a man. Tho her father was strict to keep her pure. When she turned 18 she was sent the Emperor’s court with orders to catch the eye of Ikina Morimoto the trusted advisor to the Emperor. Tho he was nearly forty and she barely 18 Arkase knew that this match would mean more for the clan than any war could bring them. Luck was not on the young Emiko’s side tho and before the arrangement for a marriage could be secured Ikina was found dead , poisoned by someone. Emiko was sent home to wait for her Father’s next plans.

Very good, I added that it was Lucky so you could use it for stuff and it's functionally identical to other people's items but still a nice bit of additional character flavour.

Yes, I approve of the character but apparently thought I'd added him to Characters when I hadn't.

That post has been reworked into links directly to sheets so people can more freely edit and it's generally less of a headache to add\swap people around.

Please let me know if there are any mistakes about Clan membership or something similar, I'm realizing I really should've added that to the sheet.  Also if anyone's missing\not where they should be just poke me to fix it.

Anyone considering joining know we have no Yunar Exiles so if one signed up, they'd automagically assume rulership of the Clan at gamestart.  Best and probably last chance to wind up a ruler besides usurping your own.

There will probably be some scything for sure. I should definitely talk with my new clanmates... Being [Empress] means we have to be discriminating on who gets scythed. In any event, there will be plenty for Itakura to do, even before we inevitably end up fighting another PC faction.

Midori hasn't killed anyone... yet. At least no one can prove she has.

In a strange turn of events, may be the Oshiro Clan doesn't have to conquer anyone to get to the top!

Krai Folk have been taken care of with two members, just need a Yunar Exile though I believe we may have one in the works.

So really just filling out any Clan's roster.  She could indeed do well in your Clan Gunba, together y'all could pump out massive amounts of troops.

That makes me to ask...would the skill check influenced (in war/battle) by sheer amount of troops + eguiptment? Meaning even if there is 5 star skilled general other side with couple squads of padded leather armored sohei (peasant warriors with swords/pikes/spears/bows etc) while facing full metal armored legions of samurai led by 1 star general? Basically would numbers and gears shuffle advantage to one way or other?
