This page is not about the Ninja guild, but about the npcs you may encounter named ninja.

Description

White belt ninja

This is a small, slight warrior.  He (at least, you assume it's a he) is swathed to the eyes in tight black fabric and moves with a stealthy pantherine prowl that would turn heads on any street.  Sadly, the effect is ruined by the white belt tied round his waist.
He is in good shape.
He is standing.
Holding : a black bokken (left hand and right hand).
Wearing : a pair of tabi, a pair of tight black ninja trousers, a tight black ninja jacket, a black ninja mask and a white belt.

Mystical ninja

This tall, lanky ninja has an other-worldly look in his eyes and keeps chanting under his breath.  Obviously a devotee of ninja spirituality - which, like all things ninja, is of a highly practical nature, so a spaced-out-looking ninja is an opponent to beware of.
He is in good shape.
He is standing.
Holding : a sharpened sai (left hand) and a sharpened sai (right hand).
Wearing : a pair of tabi, a pair of tight black ninja trousers, a tight black ninja jacket, a black ninja mask, a black cotton belt and a small square stone.

Female ninja

This ninja's face may be covered, but her tight costume leaves little doubt as to her gender.  Ninja women, or 'kunoichis', are surprisingly common in the Agatean Empire.  They spend a lot of time undercover, exploiting the Agatean male's refusal to believe a woman can harbour aggression right up until she gets him with the razor-edged fan, the spiked bouquet or the deadly throwing cat.
She is in good shape.
She is standing.
Holding : a katana (left hand and right hand).
Wearing : a pair of tabi, a pair of tight black ninja trousers, a tight black ninja jacket, a black ninja mask and a black cotton belt.

Master ninja

This is a sweet, bespectacled old ninja with wisps of white hair escaping around the edges of his ninja mask.  Remember Rule One.
He is in good shape.
He is standing.
Holding : a steel-tempered katana (left hand) and a wakizashi (right hand).
Wearing : a pair of thick-rimmed spectacles, a pair of tabi, a pair of tight black ninja trousers, a tight black ninja jacket, a black ninja mask and a black cotton belt.

Deadly ninja throwing cat

Sometimes a deadly ninja throwing cat appears when fighting the ninja. It is very weak and dies fast, description still needed!

Habitat

Bes Pelargic, they can usually be found in the Pong Ping district, but they wander.

Looting possibilities

Weaponry:

Gear:

  • Ninja gear (see above descriptions)

Jewellery:

  • A small square stone

Danger level

Being auriental assassins, you can assume that they are dangerous.

  • The mystical ninja can perform priest rituals, such as dust devil.
  • They have moderate to high fighting abilities.
  • They fight as a group - attack one, and they all attack you.
  • They don't usually auto-attack, but the master ninja sometimes has a sign out. When the sign is out, they may attack.
The master ninja implausibly produces a large sign from somewhere and sets it up on the ground.
The master ninja peers at the shimmering gold cloud.
The master ninja inconspicuously picks up the large sign and apparently makes it vanish into thin air.
The master ninja moves aggressively towards the shimmering gold cloud!
