I was originally a Samurai Persona, then I flipped around a couple times, and now I have decided to do it again, and I intend on doing it right this time (as best as I can that is). I started it in the days before Sengoku Daimyo and it was pretty rough, but with the help of some friends and a book or two I made it work. I am currently nameless although most people in my area call me "Samurai" or "Japanese" Dave and occaisionally Squegee. I am interested in a Sohei persona these days so that is where I will focus. I first have a question about equipment...Where there any specifics on what manner of armour and weapons a Sohei was allowed or typically used, like specific colors and such? This will help me finalize my current armour.
