"1467-1568: The 10 year-long Onin no Ran (Onin War) brings disintegration of central government, followed by the Sengoku Jidai (Era of the Country at War). Firearms introduced by shipwrecked Portuguese soldiers (1543),Christianity by Francis Xavier (1549)."

"the whole ninja thing needs to be new, not known of, so the timeframe is 1530 or maybey 1540"

not that i dont have the personal resources but it's just easier to copy and paste.

minamoto no yoshitsune is the first person documented to use ninja like tactics in a japanese folk tale. in which he was educated by a tengu in the way of the sword.(obviously not historical fact) he was instead educated by buddhist monks with such books as "the art of war" he then snuck into the emperors palace dressed as a woman, assasinated the emperor and seized the throne.

"One of the earliest roots of ninja, Togakure Ryū, reportedly originated in the late Heian Period. Iga and Kōga are two of the most famous ninja styles, and are often pitted against each other in fiction. In reality, they were allies and worked together in mutual defense pacts. Both of these claim that they originate in the Heian period." (wikipiedia) all true.

the heian period lasted from 794 to 1185

togakure ryu ninjutsu was founded by daisuke togakure as he became known


"After Yoshinaka's defeat, one of his samurai retainers, Daisuke Nishina of Togakure Village escaped to the mountains of Iga in south central Japan. Nishina's native village of Togakure is now known as Togakushi, and was an early center of Shugendo training. It may be that Nishina engaged in such training, but the records of the Togakure ryu do not mention it. The mountains provided an easy place to hide from the enemy troops, who still searched for Yoshinaka's forces. Daisuke Nishina, who subsequently changed his name to Daisuke Togakure, later became known as the first Soke (family head) of the Togakure ryu of ninjutsu." (all true)

if your looking for when the ninja were new and not known of the story would be around this time.

the sengoku musou when ninja were most active was between 1467 and 1615

picking a date around when firearms were introduced produces a flaw in your "ninja are not known of" theory. as previously stated, during this time they were most active and most prominent.

as this is a work of fiction i do acknowledge that you can do whatever you well please, but being that your trying to base this somewhat in reality im just letting you know the plot holes you are introducing.

please send a copy of the script to me when it is available

What Boone said! (Other than the good animator part, i suck!)

Hmmm...I tried modelling a Samurai sword sometime back, think i collected a bunch of reference for it. Lemme see if i can dig them up when i get back home!

looks like a nice project, i wonder what the result will be like
good luck !

That would be cool, we got an animator/modeler in processing.... (hehe sounds like starwars)....

but the more the merrier, what 3d program do you use??

Thanks Blz, hopefully we will have an animated scene that can rival FFAC.....

I think, with the right help, and lots of hard work, we can get somthing of that quality, Boone knows my work, and sofar he is the only one who knows what I can do on my own, but with help, I think we can do somthing that will definately get onto the front pages of cgtalk.... maybey even further.... who knows...
