Samurai Rank System

By:

A system for samurai ranks. Still having trouble with the output of this one.

Note, while based on historical titles, this particular system was never historically employed in Japan, the titles deriving from a combination of several clan-based internal hierarchies.

Koyakunin - Gate guard.

Nakakosho - Groom and/or stableman.

Tomokosho - Personal attendant.

Rusuigumi - Junior attendant.

Koshogumi - Senior attendant.

Umamawari - Third rank retainer (has the right to wear two swords).

Churo - Second rank retainer (has the right to wear two swords, and ride horse in war).

Koshogumi - First rank retainer (has the right to wear two swords, and rid horse in war & peace).

Gokenin - Household Vassal (Hatamoto - Banner Knight (Karo - Elder Councilor.

Mujo Daimyo - Lords without a castle and with a yearly income between 10,000-20,000 koku.

Joshu Daimyo - Lord of a castle.

Jun-kokushu (Tozama) Daimyo - Lords with Kunimochi-nami (Fudai) Daimyo - Lords with Kokushu (Tozama) Daimyo - Provincial lords with 100,000+ koku.

Kunimochi (Fudai) Daimyo - Provincial lords with 100,000+ koku.

Shinpan Daimyo - Lords who are relatives of the shogun.

Shogun - Generalissimo, in charge of the entire military of Japan.

Additional Terms

This listing does not jive with my experience with this order. Still it give a passible ordering for inspiration for other things.

So this is entirely made up?

You're In Deep

       By: Murometz

The PCs are exploring the catacombs beneath a Colosseum-in-Rome type of structure, when they come across a foul-smelling, stagnant, ankle-deep with algae, public mass latrine. Countless urinals of marble, line this rather large chamber equally crafted of marble. Whatever system of plumbing once worked here, has not in many years. Old graffiti lines the stained,dirty walls, prominently bolded are such intellectual poetic musings as, "Urine For It Now", "I Pee Therefore It Comes" and "Now Urine Trouble".

A few moments after the PCs get to take in this unpleasant location, they hear the low rumbling of ancient plumbing and rather large Urine Elemental rises like a great, wet, wave of filth to attack them. The creature reeks and exudes noxious debilitating fumes, while its liquid strikes burn flesh like acid.
