Bayushi Matsuo

 


Why, of all the samurai your master had, did he choose to give you up? This is probably not a good thing about your character, though it need not be a flaw necessarily.Matsuo was chosen when his uncle lost control after finding out who had killed his brother, Matsuo's father. Instead of dealing with it through honorable means he attacked when the man was alone but he failed to kill him. When the man got away and reported to his lord the accusation was levied against his uncle. In order to protect his uncle from having to commit seppuku Matsuo offered up himself in the place of one of the lords other loyal samurai for the decree.


As samurai can't exactly be gifted or traded under the law, not without still owing ultimate loyalty to your previous daimyo, you were all technically stripped of your name and your duty for some period of time. Was that period exactly as long as it took you to travel to your new master? Or did you do anything with this brief time as a free ronin?Because of the way that this all happened Matsuo went quickly to his new lord's side.

I'm interested but I have a question. Do all the players have to be from different clans? Because I am reading it as saying each neighbouring daimyo is giving up just one samurai. Is that right?

I'd prefer different clans, but if you offer a good explanation as to why your lord gave up multiple valuable agents I'd be okay with two. I do tend to prefer diverse casts though.

In that case, I'd like to declare my intention to play a Asahina Shugenja I'm case others were also pondering a Crane app!

I'm hoping to have it up Wednesday afternoon, Thursday night at the latest.

Just a heads up for those who don't know: The Mantis Clan (minor clan) info is available as a free PDF on FFG's website.

I have edited my character application into the post here.

Thanks for pointing out the Mantis info, MaxU. I'm glad I was as far along in my app as I was or I might have fallen back on them as my usual crutch. It's nice to try something different.

I'm looking at playing a Dragon courier that may have caused some trouble prosecuting a fellow samurai with physical evidence. But I'm not settled yet.

Not to tromp on any toes if I go another direction, but I doubt we all make the cut and that's how the die rolls sometimes.

@Zazaq

Since timeline isn't going to be strictly to, can I submit a Naga character that was on (the earlier than official timeline) the Dashmar's diplomatic mission to the empire to broker peace and has stayed behind in Crab territory to fight the Shadowland threats?

If you do not wish to move up the Peace Mission in your campaign then I will think of another concept.

EDIT- never mind, this is a 5th edition thread so there are no rules for Naga characters yet.... I'll think of something else.

2nd Edit- Probably a Phoenix Clan, Isawa Elementalist... 20 questions to be answered in future post, hopefully tonight.

Haven't yet updated my first post, hopefully will tomorrow with the 20 questions. Given people are saying it, though, I'm planning for a Kakita Duelist of the same family, from the Crane clan. Imveros encouraged me toward supporting this game, and we hope to both apply well enough that we can both be taken as Cranes.

Well, a duelist and a shugenja are pretty different animals so I'd think you guys would have a fair shot.

Are you taking people who would be new to the system?

Updated my post with why Mifune was sent away and what he did in the interim period.

Application is approaching completion. Brain is a little too fried right now for proper editing. I'm going to sleep on it and get it to you tomorrow evening!

Getting excited!
