- Greetings All,
First question, where is everybody? The list seems to have gone
strangely quiet over the last month, according to the archive, the last
message was posted on the 12th of November. I was beginning to wonder if
my ISP had introduced some new kind of excessive filtering.
Okay to the purpose of my post, I'm sure this has been asked before, but
in films like Ran, there is a victory chant given by one army to
another. I've tried to find out what is being said and what it means. As
to what is being actually said I've found nothing to date, but regarding
meaning I've come across two, either: "glory, glory, glory" or "victory,
victory, victory", and then some kind of a cheer. Which of either is
correct, or is it a case that that both are, or aren't?
I'd like to be able to use this cry in our events, but without a clear
written expression, I'm stumped. So what is said by the leader, and what
is the reply? Romanji answers only thanks, as I can't get my email
package to reproduce kana or kanji.
And finally does anyone know of any other period battle cries? Is
"banzai" ("ten thousand years") post period? I've not heard it in any
historical movies or read about it's use in history books, only in those
sources associated with the first half of the 20th century.

purposes of the SCA; it will still add flavor to your persona. The
words are not necessarily modern, I just don't know about the
