1400's

Today's first day as a samurai worrier and I couldn't be more excited as to what's going to come in the future. Becoming a worrier is the highest type of honor anyone could have and that's why I became one. To be able to follow the Bushido way of life and be honor full is a great feeling. The duties that I will be taking up is protecting my ruler and property. My people need to be protected and I must fight to the death to defend them.
