Samurai Legends

Become Legend
Starting map of the Samurai Legends Metaverse
The complete Samurai Legends game is a playable samurai-themed metaverse. Including free-to-play modes, a player starts as a nobleman who can control logistical and military units through a map of Feudal Japan. Land, fighters, weapons, and other equipment are owned as NFTs, while players can band together as clans to spread their influence and protect their treasures. Rising through the ranks, only one player can become Shogun of the land, until a successful coup overthrows them. During this development, both SamuraiRising and Samurai Lands will be upgraded and fused into a single game named Samurai Legends

Battle Sequence

Player Entity

When making a free account, a player obtains a controllable entity, beginning at the rank of Nobleman. This character can traverse the land, pick up jobs, perform quests, and own and control other units. The Nobleman may join and serve a clan, but does not possess voting power yet. At this level, a player can manage lands, upgrading and building on them.
After hitting certain milestones, a Nobleman may be promoted to a Samurai Commander. In addition to all the previous abilities, a player is now able to create and control Warbands, upgrade and train units, and participate in a wider range of quests. A Samurai Commander gains voting power in a clan and can hire other players to complete specific tasks.
The next rank a player can reach is a Daimyo. A Daimyo controls large territories of land and is responsible to the Shogun for ensuring maximum production of lands to pay taxes, as well as protecting the territory from enemy invasions. A Daimyo may be deposed by the Shogun for not meeting economic or military requirements, then a new Daimyo is appointed to rule the territory. A Daimyo may be voted as clan leader and can wage war individually or as a clan.
The highest rank achieved by a player is that of Shogun, the ruler of the metaverse. As previously mentioned, the Shogun can remove and instate Daimyos based on their performance. The Shogun also sets and collects the taxes on production and trade. To become Shogun, a Daimyo must act as clan leader and defeat the current Shogun in battle.

Unit Types

A variety of units are able to assist with the economic and military goals of a player. Some of these units are considered low-tier, which means they will disappear when defeated, while others are high-tier, meaning they are permanent and only temporarily disabled when defeated. Each unit has a progression of upgrades and can learn specialized skills. The three categories of units are Fighters, Commoners, and Artisans.
Fighters can be either low-tier, such as spearmen and footsoldiers, or high-tier, including samurai, ninjas, archers, and monks. These Fighters are necessary for both the defense of territories and the conquest of new land. Fighters can be grouped together into a Warband to roam, fight, and pillage; a warband must be put under the control of a Samurai Commander, either a Player Entity or a Unit.
Commoners are low-tier units who help to produce and transport resources. Beginning as peasants, they can specialize in skill. Various types of laborers and farmers can be employed to work the land and enhance the rate of resource production. Runners are able to transport resources or products from one area to another, especially when they are combined into Logistical Units. These Logistical Units can be controlled by any Player Entity and travel further distances to transport goods across territories.
Artisans are high-tier units that can turn resources into products, including items, weapons, and equipment. An artisan is specialized in a trade which determines the types of products they produce.

Land and Provinces

In a rice-centered economy, owning and controlling land is of utmost importance. Land is grouped into provinces, and the most general distinction is between the outer provinces - purchased and permanently owned land on the islands of Kyushu, Shikoku, and Hokkaido - and the inner provinces - temporarily controlled and conquerable territories on the island of Honshu.
The smallest denomination of land that can be owned or controlled is a Shoen. Farms to generate rice or other buildings to extract resources can be constructed on a Shoen. A Shoen located in the outer provinces is permanently owned, while the manager of a Shoen in an inner province may be evicted by the ruling Daimyo by falling out of favor. If evicted, the player who previously managed the Shoen is allowed to take certain buildings and artisans with them to the next Shoen they manage.
A Han is a strategic stronghold located in a province. A Han is ruled by a Daimyo, who sets and collects taxes on subordinate Shoens. In turn, the Han protects the land from military attacks, using the resources collected to create defenses and other siege equipment.
The Hans in a province are subject to the Province Capital. Also overseen by a Daimyo, the Province Capitol is the center for trade and commerce. Roads and highways connect Province Capitols to each other, and these are the only places with marketplaces to trade goods. The governing Daimyo sets and collects taxes from the Hans and builds infrastructure to help and protect all in the province. For a Province Capitol to be overtaken by an enemy, all Hans must be captured before it can be attacked.
