    Samurai- Those Who Serve


    Welcome To The Order Of The Samurai

    all members swear fealty to the shogun (president) and no other.

    this will be moved over with the forum switch so please no posts saying wrong forum or the such like,

    The Laws Of The Samurai

    1. Samurai must fight fair, no stabbing in the back, if an argument needs to be resolved then it will be contested in either armed or unarmed contest.

    2. A Samurai must become perfect in whatever he chooses to pursue, whether it be archery, armed combat with a single sword, armed combat with a double sword, or unarmed combat.

    3. Samurai must make there own weapons, no taking off anyone else.

    4. If you come across a a fellow elitist across the field of battle, you shall seek each other out. once miamed so much that they cannot continue you end their life quickly and painlessly.

    5. If a samurai should lose and live he must perform the art of Seppuku (the killing of ones self)

    6. A samurai must first under go the trials before being completly acknowledged as a Samurai.

    7. Once becoming a Samurai it is for life (a term) so this should not be undertaken lightly. it is only a job for the bold and foolhardy for we alone stand in the defence of the kingdom.

    The Seven Principles

    These are possibly more important than the laws, they define what a samurai must be.

    The Samurai principles grew out of a mix of Buddhism and
    Shintoism. They Called it Bushido.

    1. Gi: the right decision, taken with equanimity, the right attitude, the truth. When we must die, we must die. Rectitude.

    2. Yu: bravery tinged with heroism.

    3. Jin: universal love, benevolence toward mankind; compassion.

    4. Rei: right action--a most essential quality, courtesy.

    5. Makoto: utter sincerity; truthfulness.

    ó. Melyo: honor and glory.

    7. Chugo: devotion, loyalty.

    Wouldn't that be "to the Shogun and no other." :rolleyes:

    I'm considering joining, but I'll wait a little more. It's not easy to leave the Samurai caste once you're in it you know. :p

    I have just undergone the process of making my sword, read on if you wish. BCLG bows :)

    I had to undergoe fasting to purify myself for my blade, i was dressed in white as should be done and i began the proccess. i began by heating the steel and then hammering the varying layers of hardness together, this enabled it to both be strong inn battle but also. This process took a month with the reheating taking place over and over again. I then preceded to engrave just above the hilt with the words. Gi, Yu, Jin, Rei, Makoto, Melyo and Chugo

    Hmm, Gi and Gi would be a bit confusing for me since I closely associate the Gi as the typical karate uniform ;).

    Personally, I would take the kana-ized Romaji words with a grain of salt. Putting Japanese into romaji, and back into Japanese is like asking babelfish to translate paragraphs for you. ;)

    I'll be creating a Japanese language FAQ thread, since it's bound to be a popular theme. (samurai, anime...)


    (BTW, sanka is used for "to participate" in relation to forums).

    The Grandmaster will have to excuse me, but I wasn't aware that Samurai made their own swords. I'm pretty sure they got master blacksmiths to do it. ;)

    Considering the fact that it takes months to make a good Katana, I suppose I would take some sharp tools and try to cut and fight myself out of the jungle before I starve to death. :p

    But seriously, who cares. Just one more thing: You wont have much of a sword until we research IW... :p
