Introduction

Hailing from the war-torn lands of the Far East, the secret arts of the ninja were born of necessity, and have since given rise to a unique breed of highly-trained combatants. Able to manipulate the vital energies of the land, the air, and living beings, they manifest their power through the weaving of signs, unleashing a wide array of attacks against their foes. Master the arts of the ninja and learn to bend the tide of battle to your will.

Ninjutsu activation

As stated above, Ninjutsu actions are activated by first using a sequence of one to three Mudras and then using Ninjutsu.png  Ninjutsu. For new Ninjas, memorizing the correct Mudra sequences is extremely important. Mudra combinations are broken down by the number of Mudras and the final Mudra used, with no duplicates allowed. If you find it difficult to remember the correct Mudra sequences, you could try using a mnemonic device to assist you. For example, thinking of the Mudras Ten.png  Ten, Chi.png  Chi and Jin.png  Jin as blue, red and yellow, or as one, two and three could be useful. It is generally discouraged to use macros to activate your Ninjutsu abilities because Mudras can be cast every 0.5 seconds, while the macro wait command only works in increments of 1.0 seconds. Eventually, using Mudra combinations will be second nature.

Lore

Hailing from the war-torn lands of the Far East, the secret arts of the ninja were born of necessity, and have since given rise to a unique breed of highly-trained combatants. Able to manipulate the vital energies of the land, the air, and living beings, ninjas manifest their power through the weaving of signs, unleashing a wide array of attacks against their foes.

History

In the eastern seas beyond the continent of Othard can be found the remote island nation of Hingashi—a word that literally means “east.” An age of strife perpetuated by factions both great and small has battered this isolated archipelago for years untold, giving rise to unique forms of warfare—as was the case with the mystical art of the shinobi. Due to the tumultuous nature of its inception, however, the roots of ninjutsu are difficult to trace to a single origin. Rather, it must be said that the raw techniques devised by the individual factions were adopted on the wider field of conflict, and honed through a process of bloody evolution. Many historians find it easier to focus upon the founding of the various ninja clans. In the mountainous regions where crops struggle to grow, people chose instead to nurture their martial skills. Children were raised into a warrior tradition, and entire families earned a living through their clandestine expertise. And when these shinobi eventually crossed the seas to Othard, the art of ninjutsu quickly found purchase upon its shores. The most famous account of this is the tale of Sasuke, a ninja who established his own clan on the continent before joining with the warlords of Doma to end a tyrant’s oppressive reign.

Equipment

Ninja Attire

Woven in the clan village of the Doman outlands, this traditional shinobi garb is designed both for battle and infiltration. The cowl of the outfit covers the features of the face, thus protecting the identity of the ninja should circumstances require him to act in full view of the enemy.

Yoshimitsu

These exquisite twin daggers take their name from the legendary Far Eastern bladesmith who forged them. As an artisan of the shortblade, Yoshimitsu was said to be a master without equal, and the works bearing his mark are treasured by the greatest houses and heroes as invaluable heirlooms.

Iga Attire

This garb was crafted in the village of the Iga ninja, who were known for their strict adherence to the letter of a contract—even if said contract pit them against members of their own family should they be working for a rival master. The horns of the headpiece lend the shinobi a grim mien, further reflecting the Iga’s philosophy of uncompromising dedication, and, combined with the blade-like spikes protruding from forearm and knee, allow the shinobi to perform lethal attacks with her armor alone.

Yukimitsu

Forged by Yukimitsu, a bladesmith of eld, this pair of masterfully crafted daggers has been cherished through the centuries by a succession of notable rulers and proud warriors. It is said that the last person to wield the weapons was the personal retainer of an infamous warlord, who, after receiving the daggers as a reward for loyal service, pledged to employ them in the defense of his liege until the end of days. That oath was swiftly fulfilled, however, when both warlord and retainer were slain in an ally's treacherous ambush some days later. Following this incident the yukimitsu vanished from history's records until, some few years ago, they resurfaced amongst the wares of a dealer in antiquities.

Tricks of the Trade

  • Chimatsuri: Drawing upon the aether suffusing a battlefield, this complex mudra conjures a multitude of moonlight blades in a circle around the ninja. The blades leap into the air upon completion of the technique, then streak forwards to impale the foe in a blinding and bloody barrage.
  • Fuma Shuriken: Pointed and deadly, the shuriken of the shinobi are forged from a metal whose smelting process is known only to the clan. A ninja uses this mudra to infuse such shuriken with aether, enveloping the throwing star in an immense, phantom aura—the impact of which is anything but illusory.
  • Katon: By joining earth with heaven, the ninja calls a great gout of flame to erupt from the ground and lick hungrily at the sky. Only shinobi who have mastered two-mudra techniques such as Katon may earn the rank of chunin, or “middle ninja.”
  • Dream Within a Dream: Using this technique, the shinobi assaults the enemy with three strikes in swift succession. Dream Within a Dream is rogue bladework at its best, combined with the rapid movement of a ninja’s Shukuchi.

Oboro Torioi

  • Race (Clan): Hyur (Far Eastern)
  • Gender: Male
  • Age: 24
  • Epithet: Oboro Moonrise

Hailing from the ninja village in the Doman outlands, Oboro was a solemn youth whose natural aptitude and unyielding determination saw him earn the rank of jonin—or “high ninja”—at an unusually early age. But though dexterous and nimble, his quick fingers excelling in the eastern art of paper folding, Oboro’s reliance on others in the matters of everyday chores often leaves him appearing awkward and ill-at-ease. When the shadow of the Garlean Empire fell over Doma, he joined the ultimately futile effort to repel the invaders, inflicting grievous losses before eventually being forced to retreat. Upon learning that the betrayer, Karasu, had left with imperial forces for western shores, Oboro was the first to volunteer for a mission that would take him to the realm of Eorzea in search of the traitorous shinobi.

Karasu Redbeak

  • Race (Clan): Hyur (Far Eastern)
  • Gender: Male
  • Age: 24
  • Epithet: Karasu Redbeak

A shinobi of jonin rank who trained alongside Oboro in the art of ninjutsu. Flippant and dramatic where Oboro was stoic and serious, Karasu’s antics often drew the ire of his teachers, but none could emulate the ruthless poise he displayed during even the most demanding of duties. Following the fall of Doma, Karasu was banished from the village as a traitor to his clan. Subsequent events saw him join the master ninja, Gekkai, in a plan to establish a new organization of imperial shinobi until the deeds of his childhood friend allowed him to slip away from the alliance and into the shadows. Now free as the crow from whom he takes his name, the eccentric Karasu is believed to have remained in Eorzea, living out his whims upon a stage of his own choosing.

Mudra

Known as “mudra,” the ritual hand gestures that allow a ninja to harness mystical energies can be considered the simplified components of more complicated incantations. By manipulating the aether present in heaven (ten), earth (chi), and man (jin), and further combining their effects in predetermined sequences, the shinobi is capable of manifesting an impressive array of arcane phenomena.

Rabbit Medium

When classifying ninjutsu by the broader definitions of the arcane arts, one might describe the mudra of summoning as a fusion of both teleportation and summoning magicks: an aether-enhanced creature is bound into service, then forcibly transported from its domain to the shinobi’s location. While not all ninjas are capable of such techniques, any failed mudra can result in the conjuration of a curious rabbit-like manifestation from some unknown dimension. [1]

Ninja's Panoply

Kage-Kakushi Somen

This traditional mask, passed down for generations in the Kagekakushi clan, lines brow, cheeks, and jaw with a sturdy rim of metal. Also of note is the breathable cloth concealing both mouth and nose, which makes it highly effective as a filter of noxious fumes.

Kage-Kakushi Chainmail

Chainmail is the ninja’s preferred means of protecting his body from cuts and bites, all without compromising mobility. This particular type is forged from split wire links, tempered and then coated with lacquer to improve durability and prevent rusting.

Kage-Kakushi Kyahan

Most shinobi wear knee-high kyahan to constrict their hakama and prevent the short trousers from catching on obstacles. The cloth soles are coated with resin to quiet the footsteps.

Form & Function

Ninjas originally arose from clans of mountain-dwelling commonfolk. Thus, their garb traces back to the short cotton kimono and trouser-like hakama worn by farmers and hunters, who preferred clothing less restrictive and better suited to toiling outdoors than standard ankle-length robes. Early ninja armor amounted to nothing more than a simple breastplate worn beneath such work clothing. When shinobi took to the battlefield during the Age of Blood, they began to utilize the same chainmail that was popular amongst samurai. This period also saw the development of the trappings that characterize ninjas today: leg wraps to enable fleetness of foot, masks to conceal the visage, and kote to protect the hands. As the art of ninjutsu gradually spread its way across mainland Othard, shinobi began incorporating Doman armor into their battlegarb as well. [2]
