Part 1: Days 0 and 1. Where people dress in black.

Days 0 and 1. Where people dress in black.

Shiobisee, Shinobido.

Do watch the second tutorial run.

Here are the two missions the engine cooked up:


injuries sustained during the battle. But your skills seem intact, as your infiltration of my castle has proved.

Utakata is on the brink of war. It is for this reason that I must make use of your skills once again.

I want you to find my spy in Negishi Pavilion and give them a letter containing instructions from me. But be careful; Sadame's men are in Negishi Pavilion. I've sealed the letter in a sturdy wooden box, but you must still guard it with your life.

My men will take care of searching for the stones you seek. I'm counting on you.

people -- who will gain control of Utakata.

Your loss of memory is no doubt all a part of the divine Amurita's plan. Please consider using this opportunity to join forces with me. You may not remeber it, but I always thought you were a force to be reckoned with.

My spies tell me that Ichijo's men are in Sengen Town. For all that talk about wanting to avoid a war, they certainly didn't waste any time in preparing for battle. I want you to launch a surprise attack on them. Wipe them all out. Of course, no one must connect this to me. I don't want to start a full-scale war just yet.

As for those stones you are searching for, I have already begun inquiries of my own. There are many members of the Amurita Faith who have close ties to this area... I await your response.

I'm taking one of them to get the game started for real.

Wrong man, wrong place.

Fresh mail:


I will be sending you letters containing useful information from time to time. Keep and eye out for them. And don't forget to take the ninja equipment and medicine in the hidden shelf.

One thing I forgot to mention: I am called Onji. Please just think of me as a concerned bystander, and do not worry about the details.


and use them to get information about the whereabouts of the soul fragments.

If you feel bound by past loyalties, you may choose Ichijo. Or perhaps you would rather choose the rich Akame, or even the long shot -- Sadame. You might even pretend to serve all three while waiting to see how the winds of war will blow.

At one time, that was the nature of ninja. Their loyalty was to their mission, and not to a particular lord. They put themselves first in their fight for survival.

In any case, I advise you to think long and hard about the choice you will make.



The best way to increase a lord's respect for you is to accept their missions. And you can also try sending them gifts that they might like. On the other hand, if you do something that one of the lords doesn't like, their respect for you will go down. However, if you're careful not to get found out, their opinion of you won't change. When you carry out missions like that, make sure nobody sees you. And if you do get spotted, make sure you take care of any witnesses. As long as you do that, the lord won't find out what you've done.

By the way, I've heard that ninja who let a lord's respect get to rock bottom can have a lot of trouble with them from that point on. I'm sure you'll be fine, but it wouldn't hurt to be careful.

Here are the six mission offers for today:



don't lay a hand on my men.

I'm sure you can handle something of this calibre. Show a little effort.



Of course you must be careful of attackers who want to steal the documents, but I always want you to exercise adequate caution in your handling of them. If possible, it would be best that the enemy did not even know of their existence.

I'm sure you can handle something of this calibre. Show a little effort.



enough that you're heading toward me instead.

I can't wait to see how they react. This should be fun to watch.



If you should meet up with anyone trying to steal the documents, kill them immediately.

Are you sure you can handle this? Anyway, good luck.



Exactly the same description as for mission C, but replace "Ichijo" with "Akame".



I want you to deliver a slanderous letter about Akame to a certain merchant. The merchant will make several copies of it and send them all over. I can't wait.

I hear that Akame's men just happen to be in Negishi Pavilion, where the merchant is. This is a perfect opportunity to really upset Akame. Take care of it for me.

I've put a letter in a sturdy box, but you still have to be careful that you don't lose in or get it dirty.

You may not be equal to the job, but I'm not expecting a lot. Just give it a try.

Vote boldly in bold. I don't expect many votes but a general prod in some direction would be nice.
