The Age of the Samurai 1185-1868

The samurai knights have arrived in the Kingdom of Elfia and they have set up their camp. They have polished their armours and will regularly patrol the kingdom, ready for battle.

Historical background: bushi is often used as a synonym for samurai. however, historical sources make it clear that bushi and samurai were distinct concepts, with the former referring to soldiers or warriors and the latter referring instead to a kind of hereditary nobility. The word samurai is now closely associated with the middle and upper echelons of the warrior class. These warriors were usually associated with a clan and their lord and were trained as officers in military tactics and grand strategy. While these samurai numbered less than 10% of then Japan’s population, their teachings can still be found today in both everyday lives and in modern Japanese martial arts.
