Sanjuro Bushi School

An extremely young school, not even a year old, it was developed by Sanjuro (Deceased), his father Sanjuro Tatsuya (Deceased), and a few other ronin and magistrates who joined the small family.

As of now, it only has a few techniques. It will probably be a full generation until it is truly mastered.

The Sanjuro Family is currently only a few dozen samurai, mostly ex-ronin, who have sworn fealty to Sanjuro himself. Though ragtag, all exhibit a strong will and sense of self.

They also add their School Rank to any rolls made to resist the gaining or growth of Shadowlands Taint. They gain a similar bonus on Fear checks caused by oni, shadowlands, creatures, or maho spells. Using Lore: Maho and Lore: Shadowlands is not a low skill for Mongoose bushi.

Rank Two: Remove the Mask-The Sanjuro bushi does not forget his roots. The school was started by magistrates and witch-hunters capable of seeing through another’s lies or manipulations. Mongoose samurai gain +1k0 on contested Social rolls resisting intimidation, deception, or other attempts to manipulate.
