Heroes of the Far East: Samurai

Watermarked PDF

The samurai is a warrior of great dedication and focus. A samurai's training in bushido, the way of the warrior, is an honor and a privilege to these soldiers. It is through this discipline that the bushi, another name for a samurai, earns the respect and the loyalty of his companions. It is through bushido that all things in life are viewed by samurai.

"I live with the teachings of bushido in my heart always. Loyalty to my lord is loyalty to my people and loyalty to myself."

The way of the samurai is one of discipline and tactical combat. Fighters, paladins, and even some rangers find the teachings of bushido close to their own ideals, and so dedicate themselves to their beliefs or to a tangible master. A warlord's already stalwart dedication to his companions lends itself well to life as a bushi. Whether to turn a new leaf or just learn some new tricks, there are rogues who might consider such a profession. Finally, though rare, barbarian tribes sometimes exhibit the same bond seen in a samurai, and so train their warriors with what can be viewed as a samurai code.

This article details the Samurai profession and the Shogun paragon path.

Product Information
File Size:
0.16 MB
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
