The Way of the Ninja under Osa Liquid Sasori, 3rd Sensei[]

In the service of,
our masters,
we reap and sow.

To give sweet release,
and by doing so,
know what it is to be alive.

Our life's purpose,
honour, dignity and pride.
We give ourselves.

The Way of the Ninja[]

We are those in the service of the Way. Our life's objective is the constant search of the Way and of enlightenment. Molded by the needs of society, we have grown and have been given a purpose.

We are not warriors, wanderers, thieves or those would seek strength from a being that is beyond us. We search within and grow in the areas where our strength is needed most. As such, we, the Ninja, are not to stray from what we are. Below are the Laws that must be obeyed by all Ninja. Chant a sutra, and go where you must.

Attitude and Behaviour[]

Life constantly leads us to confrontation, but we must strive to use our strength only when needed. It has been decreed that we are not to show our strength, to the individuals who undertake the same tasks, which we undertake in Agatea. We are, however, allowed to defend ourselves with utmost brute is needed to vanquish any foe who would attack us. Under most circumstances, we are to behave with respect to our counterparts.

Ninjas are to respect authority and their elders above all. Ninjas of higher rank and age should also act accordingly not to place younger Ninja in a position where giving respect might be resentful. Courtesy and respect is important.

Worldly Dealings[]

Ninjas will continue to have the right to sell guild poisons or custom made poisons. Certain special guild items, such as our belts and headbands, can not be sold to anyone, under any circumstances. Corpse looting is absolutely not allowed and will not be tolerated by anyone, Ninja and non-Ninja alike. We shall give respect, and in turn want it returned to us.

Contracts[]

No Ninja shall discuss contracts with the soon-to-be enlightened. Equally, no arranged contracts are allowed. Looting from the corpses of the enlightened will also not be tolerated. These rules must be adhered to strictly.

Summary[]

  • Ninjas are to respect authority, rank and age.
  • Ninjas are not to interfer in the business(read: inhume) of other Ninja or Assassin specs. Other specs interfering in a ninja's business will be punished.
  • Ninjas are not to inform others of active contracts.
  • Retribution for closing contracts is not allowed.
  • Multiple killings for failed inhumations will not be allowed.
  • Ninjas are not to attack/steal from other Ninjas.
  • Ninjas are not to attack/steal from the members of other specializations.
  • The selling of poisons is allowed.
  • Ninja belts and headbands are not allowed to be sold.
  • Corpse looting is not allowed to or from Ninjas.

Persons who violate anyone of these rules will be subjected to punishment as decreed by the Sensei.

The Osa, Mentors, Karumas and the Avatar will enforce all of the above rules.
