The Nana Korobi Ya Oki Uchi are a guild based out of the Islands east of Tyran. What we stand for is freedom. Freedom from opressive government, freedom from evil, freedom to live life at its fullest.


While being primarily good in principle our actions might not always be aligned with the good guilds, and we may not neccesarily battle every evil guild. Our first and primary consideration in all matters is honor and the five truths.


Nana Korobi Ya Oki Uchi is translated to seven falls, eight rise. In some respects it means to perservere, never give up, for you can and will fight on.

Honor is a duty. It is a way of life. It is a way to enlightenment. It is beyond life. Honor is commitment. Commitment to making sure that every single person has the same rights in life and death as another. Honor is courage in the face of the unknown, standing fighting until death for the things that you believe in and hold dear. Honor is thinking of consequences and outcomes before actions.

Our order is seeking adventurous people who hold honor and commitment above all else. Those that believe it is there duty to uphold the rights of the less fortunate. Those that realize there is wisdom in watching and learning sometimes before fighting. Those that realize actions do indeed speak louder than words, but words can be written and remebered forever.

If you read through this and my words make sense. do indeed consider replying here We are a collection of landless ronin( samurai' with no true Lord). Our cause is good in nature but we follow no true established laws.
We owe allegiance to no-one (Kings. Emperors, Overlords, etc.) We will however help their individual causes if it is justified.

There is a dark presense that resides on the mainland not too far from the islands where we call home. They will remain unamed in this open letter, but their actions are going to be the focus of our attention. If you wish to join our ranks leave a note here and I will contact you as soon as time permits.

The Five Truths:

Strategy is the craft of the warrior. Commanders must enact the craft, and troopers should know this Way. There is no warrior in the world today who really understands the Way of strategy.... It is said the warrior's is the twofold Way of pen and sword, and he should have a taste for both Ways.


Students of the Way of strategy should train from the start with the sword or weapon in either hand. This is a truth: when you sacrifice your life, you must make fullest use of your weaponry. It is false not to do so, and to die with a weapon yet undrawn.

In strategy your spiritual bearing must not be any different from normal. Both in fighting and in everday life you should be determined though calm. Meet the situation without tenseness yet not recklessly, your spirit settled yet unbiased.

If the enemy thinks of the mountains, attack like the sea; and if he thinks of the sea, attack like the mountains.

If we watch men of other schools discussing theory, and concentrating on techniques with the hands, even though they seem skillfull to watch, they have not the slightest true spirit. For they do not have faith in the five truths, they know not their full potential. Do not overlook these unbelievers for what they believe in may hold more power than you understand.
