Unburied warriors that are left to rot under the mud of battlefields are ripe pickings for shugenja and others of their ilk. In particular, these witches haunt these sites raising the bones, sinew, and rotting armour to do their bidding. That which claws its way up from under are called Gashadokuro, and these mindless killing machines do their mistress’s bidding without question. However, Akoshi is somewhat different. There seems to be the briefest glimmer of who he was in life, residing somewhere inside him. Akoshi was an accomplished ashigaru in life and remains so in death. He still manages to work in tandem with his other skeletal companions, as if he hears the barked commands of his commanding officer from all those years before. He wields his yari with skill and ferocity, thus keeping his fellow Cult members safe to spread their menace upon Jwar.

Haruto is a rarity among the Ito as he is well-liked and often overlooked when others are targeted for familial assassination. Perhaps it’s because he seeks only to do his duty as a samurai? Thus removing himself from all the incessant Ito infighting? Or maybe he’s canny enough to project one and cloak the other?
Haruto on the tabletop has a profile you may expect from a medium-cost samurai. The advantage is that all of his abilities have great synergy with the Ito faction as a whole. Give out poison? Haruto has Combo Attack so you can apply more poison! He has the Ito’s usual excellent Move of five. Still, not having the Melee Penalty for running means he can really move to claim ground without being disadvantaged. His Disengage Unique Effect plays amazingly well with the Ito’s tactics. Rounded out with Armour (2) and a pair of enviable Ki Feats Haruto is sure to be a common sight in Lords of Izu lists.

More than a thousand years ago, Itsubo, the legendary founder of the Haiatake Guard, was slain, cut down in glorious battle by an ancient enemy, and has been mourned ever since. His passing is marked yearly by grand celebrations that recount his words and deeds. But the sadness has finally lifted as the wise Koroko have proclaimed the spirit born again! The soul now resides in the body of Itsube, who must now live up to this mythical and timeless reputation. However, this puts her under immense strain. She feels unworthy of this un-earned mantle, and yet, Itsube will do everything she can not to let the Tengu, or herself, down. She is steadfast and unwavering in combat and hopes to inspire the Haiatake Guard to even greater skill at arms.
Bushido is a game of savage battles, of cunning stratagems and last-ditch defences, and where debts of honour are paid in blood.
In Bushido, the fate of the world hangs not on armies but on individual heroes, people of extraordinary capacity, attuned to the all-permeating life force known as Ki. This force is the fabric of the Bushido universe, and those with the appropriate training or natural talent can tap into this energy source and gain seemingly superhuman powers. In the world of Bushido, the delicate tapestry of Ki – and thus the universe itself – is threatened by the forces of imbalance, and it is up to you to protect it – or help rip it apart.
In a game of Bushido, nothing less than the fate of the universe is at stake. Are you ready for the challenge of the Way of the Warrior?

The Hoshi and the Minimoto families are so intertwined as to be almost one. Many a Hoshi daughter has descended from the frozen peaks above to marry a Minimoto, son. Equally, many a Minimoto has risen from below to take their place in a Hoshi household. Sora is an excellent representation of this, a fine blend of both Houses. He carries the bear’s blessing in his large frame and stalwart manner, but it is Hoshi blood that allows him to withstand the fierce winds and freezing snows that blanket the Iron Mountian’s peaks. While still an ashigaru, he is tipped to join the ranks of the guards who protect the ice maidens. Only the very best are given this posting, as it means living in the high places of the world, in gale-force winds, blizzards and whiteouts that can last for days, weeks even. Sora has embraced the best of his lineage and has become a blizzard warrior of some renown.

Mothers often warn their children whilst young 'don’t wander off or the Bakemono will get you!' said more in jest than warning. Little did they know that the monsters of fable would soon become reality.When in numbers the Bakemono appear fearless and swarm forward from the shadows, a tide of hate intent on drowning those before them. The will of the brave faltering and the sky darkening is often a prelude to their appearance.
