This is bushido, the way of the warrior. The way all true
warriors must follow. If you want to be a true and powerful warrior, then put aside the useage of elements, grab a sword, and join the Tao clan! Our weapons:[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
The katana is the only blade worthy of a samurai. Our swords are capable of utilizing chakra to increase their power or effects, such as shockwaves or shielding.[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
The kodachi or wakizashi can rarely match a katana in open battles. But it outclasses any long sword when used inside buildings - or for seppuku.[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
If you wish to keep the enemy at a distance, or fight cavalry, a sword is not to be preferred. But the yari, a 3 meter long spear, will prove useful for this. [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Have you ever seen a ninja throw his kunai or shuriken over hundreds of meters? No, it can't be done. But our ranged weapons, the bamboo longbow called yumi, can kill your opponent at a range of 150 meters with near-perfect accuracy. Our clan sign:[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.] Notes and rules:
. We do not use elemental Jutsu, but instead use energy for maximum physical advantage. Not only with hands, but also weapons. Send homing arrows from your bow or make your sword cut something far away.
. Despite using weapons, you do not necessarily kill an opponent.
. We are equal to ninjas, no weaker nor stronger. All that tells us apart are our fighting style and weapons.
. Our ranks are different than in the ninja world. Here are easy explanations:
Daimyo (clan leader. The village's leader, the shogun, is also a daimyo in the leading clan)
Hatamoto (the daimyo's bodyguard, comparable to jonin)
Samurai (the basic warriors, equal to chunin)
Minarai (young students hoping to one day become samurai, or maybe even hatamoto. Our genin) Current members:
Ninja of Tao (daimyo)
