The Ronin

 The Ronin is a Masterless Samurai and heavily armoured monster, built for war.  

He is without honour, striking without mercy with his Naginata, a bladed spear. 

The Ronin's Ability Cards utilise both range and aggression to keep all opponents on the back foot. With his heavy armour, turn aside the enemy blows and keep up the pressure to wear them down until they can be slain. 

The Master

The Master or Sensei uses the ways of old to focus his mind and strike precisely with his heirloom blade. He is a patient and measured fighter, able to use his unique Ability Cards to defend himself in almost any situation whilst still retaining the ability to attack. 

On the battlefield, his expert training means that any surrounding Hex may be vulnerable to unusual and highly situational strikes!

The Warrior

 The vengeful Warrior, or Onna-Musha (Female Samurai) travels the land searching for the Ronin responsible for killing her family in cold blood. She wields an O-Dachi, a two metre long blade, echoing the legendary female Samurai Tomoe Gozen.


Her Signature Ability Cards focus on extreme aggression and savage killing blows. She is vulnerable to attrition-based attacks and exhaustion but hits hard enough to put fear into many of her opponents.

The Student

The agile Student, trained by the Master, is a young and ferocious Samurai, desperate to forge his own path in the changing vistas of Japan.


His Signature Ability Cards focus on flexibility, a smooth ramping up of aggression and strong, straight-forward attacks.

Ninja new background.png

The Ninja

The Ninja or Concealed Warrior, is quick and deadly. Armed with the Kusarigama, a chained flail and sickle, he moves with the environment as his ally.

His unique Ability Cards feature tricks, secret weapons and smoke bombs. Use these unusual cards to escape from tight spots on the battlefield and fight on. However, beware long combats! The Ninja suffers when exposed to the light of day.
