Please post here to indicate you have signed up a duelist. Don't forget to add the @Samurai role tag on Discord! It is your choice whether to put your character's name in this post, and it does not count as already revealed for the mechanics of the duel if you do so. You may choose a clan to join, or, you may state (unassigned) to be assigned to the clan with the least members. The clans are Hokuten, Nanten, and Touten. As you can only duel members of a different clan, you likely want to make sure you (and others) are spread out somewhat evenly. You Must Include your Eyes, Look, Sword, Style, and Clan. If you include information in a sentence, please bold it to bring attention to it.

Mitsurugi Takeno is a middle-aged samurai with tired eyes and the loose traveling cloak of a wanderer bearing the symbol of the Hokuten. He still wears the dual ritual blades of those in Nihon-that-was, and the manner in which he wears them on his waist clearly indicates an unorthodox, twin-blade style.

 

OR 

Any way you want to make the post as long as the necessary info is present and bolded or in its own line.

 

If your duelist has died, when you are signing up a new duelist, please indicate your duelist has died in the post, and then state the information of your new duelist however you like to. You are not required to rejoin your old clan, though doing so makes some of the awards easier to win.

Clan Info

Nanten (MadCast: Khaos) 
- The Nanten are a clan of warrior/merchants, adapting to the new world by dealing in luxury goods and information to the power brokers of Edo.  In addition to Samurai, they number administrators, lawyers, and artisans.  The wealthiest individuals command the power in the Clan, often but not always organized by families.  The Nanten generally have a piece of all legitimate trade in Edo.  Choose Nanten if glory, fame, and wealth are your duelist's goals.

Members

  • Vyoletta - Kyoko Himura
  • Support Welfare - Zonqrow


Hokuten (MadCast: Voshay) - The Hokuten have never forgotten how far they've fallen, nor how they have climbed back up the rungs. Masquerading as simple priests by day and shadowy assassins as night, the Hokuten seek to acquire the power and wealth needed to restructure society- with Samurai back at the top, and the Hokuten Shogunate reigning supreme.  Choose Hokuten if you wish authority, honor, and status.

Members

  • Quanta - Ryoshi Hageshi
  • Hitori- Akemi Hanada
  • Prince - Yasuke Wassa
  • Rife170 - Negumi Raifu


Touten (MadCast: Munsa) - The Touten, specifically those counted as Ronin act as enforcers for contraband traders and lead gangs of thugs.  They comprise many lower class laborers and craftsmen, and often serve fringe communities that do not benefit from the Imperial Rule.  They view Bushido as a useful farce to further their own means of power, and are fiercely anti-authoritarian.  They act as more of a loose confederacy than a traditional clan, with individuals gaining loyalty through deeds and strength.  Choose Touten if you value power, conquest, and rebellion.

Members

  • Mike - Slicu Dicu
  • Wazap - Kireina Zubon
  • Kitty Stark - Kagano
  • Flapjack - Zan Minazuki
  • Majorhoward - Jomyo Benkei

Mitsurugi Takeno is here to lead the Hokuten.

 

Mitsurugi Takeno is a middle-aged samurai with tired eyes and the loose traveling cloak of a wanderer bearing the symbol of the Hokuten. He still wears the dual ritual blades of those in Nihon-that-was, and the manner in which he wears them on his waist clearly indicates an unorthodox, twin-blade style.

Kyoko Himura follows the path of the Nanten.

She is a young woman with determined eyes and carrying a long sword. She is a wanderer who hopes to carry the strength of the Nanten with her as she wanders, hoping to bury a painful memory ...

Maruko McGwireson follows in the footsteps of Touten

He is a young man with fierce eyes and carrying a kanabo. He is known as a free-swinger who will strike down anyone who crosses him. He's extremely bold, and willing to risk it all for total victory.

Batosu leads the Nanten clan. He rose through the ranks of the Nanten through financial cunning, not innate skill with a blade. His clothing and equipment is intentionally ostentatious, a public display of wealth (and therefore power within the Nanten). He will never draw a worn blade, and therefore arrives at every duel with a new weapon of the highest quality.

Nevertheless he is a traditionalist, and duels with a single katana.

Determined eyes, manicured look, traditional weapon, technical style

Akemi Hanada secretly follows the path of the Hokuten

In the lighter hours of the eternal twilight, she is a pure shrine maiden, and under the cloak of the darkest twilight she is a stealthy, light footed samurai. Her eyes are always vibrant with the thrill of the unexpected, and she is never without her concealed naginata that poses as a ceremonial staff.

As to her motivations... You will have to earn the right to question them yourself.

Kagono is a young but heavily scarred first-mate to the powerful fishing captain Mansu, leader of the Touten. He has worked with Mansu hunting Kami on the blackest seas for years to survive. His fierce eyes hold nothing but contempt for the lazy bureaucratic filth that lives within the walls of Edo, fighting over trivial things like wealth and property.

In battle, Kagono is a very agile Ronin that wields a kusarigama he obtained in a less-than-honorable manner. A majority of his scars are along his wrists and forearms, a testament to his tenured use of the challenging weapon.

Kireina Zubon follows the path of the Touten.

He is hot and he knows it, he has a cheery demeanor, manicured looks, and happy eyes which makes it even more terrifying when you find yourself getting mercilessly clubbed by his kanabo.

As a bodyguard for whoever can afford him(currently Touten's leader Mansu) he uses a strong fighting style to overwhelm his enemies.

Yasuke Wassa follows the path of the Hokuten

He is a young man of 17 with a small but well trained body and fierce eyes that often conflict with his warm smile. Though he is part gaijin, he took to learning the way of the samurai from the moment he saw the nagamaki which would eventually become his. It is said that once he picked up the blade (now named Ōji) that it became an extension of his own body. After seeing his agile, dancer like grace while using it few would be willing to argue that it was not meant for him and he for it.

rife170: Negumi Raifu

Clan: Hokuten
Eyes: Cold
Look: Manicured
Sword: Long
Style: Technical

Raifu is a ranking officer under Mitsurugi Takeno, of the Hokuten. Second son of a once powerful noble family, his quiet style of command has sent him up the ranks as the Hokuten operate in the shadows. The time has come for the young Negumi to step into the light, and play his part in the rise of the Shogun.

Zan Minazuki, by nature, follows the path of the Touten.

A wild, unkempt brute of a man, he aims to do whatever he pleases in Edo, and anyone that stands in his way risks being cleaved in twain by his zanbato.

With Mansu's clan of enforcers being the only ones willing to put up with his eccentricities and bloodlust, he's lending his strength towards advancing the Touten's goals. For the time being, at least.

There may have been a more sensible man behind those dull, broken eyes once, but that man has clearly long since passed.

Jomyo Benkei, once a true Ronin, has pledged his allegiance to the forces of the Touten, though he will forever more long for the wandering ways, and one day might indeed return to such a solitary life. 
His clothes, worn, though orderly, bely the fires that rage in his heart, if one were to take a second glance. his eyes, burning with determination, seek any source of an unequal fight.
Even if his clothes are well on their way to what one might describe as tattered, the Naginata on his back is pristine, and well cared for, though judging by the nicks and scores on the blade, it has seen more fighting than many of the newly minted so called warriors seeking to make their name. 
Jomyo cut his teeth at the legendary Battle of Okehazama but left the service of Oda Nobunaga, disgusted with his former master's lust for power and position. 
However, he learned one main lesson from his time under Oda, audacity, always audacity, and from that point on, fought with nothing but a brazen  and offensive attitude. 
Jomyo hopes that in the ranks of the Touten, he will find men such as himself, not pirates, but men willing and able to fight a united and tyrannical Nihon, and regain as much freedom and local authority as possible, without causing the destruction of both Nihon-that-is, and Nihon-that-was.
