Not sure, you'd have to consider the amount of female players(How much danger you would be in if you made them unable to be samurai), how long it would take to make a female-only class and the amount of work involved.
Then again, in Naruto men and females are pretty much equal and as this is NarutoMUD and not "Realistic-samurai-simMUD" maybe you should let females be Samurai?

By pure Samurai code, women can not be Samurai. In Naruto, you've yet to see any exceptions to this, whereas Kunoichi (female ninja) are well documented and obviously exist. Kishimoto clearly pulls a lot from real history and Japanese mythology to create Naruto, so I feel that letting female characters be samurai would be a waste. Also, a lot of people make characters specifically for RP, so as long as when you pick your sex at creation you recieve a warning that it affects gameplay, I think it'd be okay.

I dunno, maybe Geisha or something? They'd be specialized assassins in disguise, that sort of thing.

I'm not really asking what female characters could get, just asking if I made samurai male only if it'd raise a large outcry. I don't think it'd be a problem.

I don't have a problem with it being gender specific. As long as like you said gatz, a little thing saying that gender will affect some things in game during character creation. so at least people have an idea.

I think it's cool because sex affects the world and NarutoMUD, why should games take a very neutral stance on it? I think it'd make the game more unique.

I already plan on putting in certain sex-exclusive elements in the game, but known as big as locking Samurai to male-exclusive. I think it'd make more sense to make it male only. If I did that then I'd probably make something for females only at a later time, drawing on my FFT love...it'd probably a dancer class or something.


Gatz... there is such thing as a female samurai... but i believe its mainly during the start of meji restoration.

of course they weren't allowed to be out about being a samuri- their sword was hidden in a type of umbrella and the stance was diffrent... but yeah- there were female samurais

After scouring the Wiki on Samurai, I believe there is some small confusion. The Samurai women were women who were in the class, not in the same way men were. It's a good read and it'll clear up confusion on it. However, don't think because they're in the same class they are the same thing as the men. Also, it has some good info about the Meiji period and about the decline of Samurai. So study up!

I assume you meant Samurai and not Kunoichi, and like I said, Samurai would be male only.

Female Samurai?

Postby Kioji » Sat Jun 24, 2006 5:29 am

To put a little bit of history in here Woman Samurai never exisited they weren't allowed to be Samurai and if they were anything like a samurai they were known as Ronin and thats becuase Ronin were rogue warriors who trained on there own. So it was extrodinarly rare like 1 in 10 thousand chance of seeing a femal warrior how ever some Geisha were hired killers.
And if a female was ever caught with a weapon in there possesion useing it for more then a show peice they were executed on the spot.

I think the Samurai job wil be a good opener into pvp combat. I mean, you are a ninja, and you can never get any missions because a samurai keeps getting them first, or messing them up, then you finnaly meet the guy (or girl.) How can that not be climactic?

I love this idea... Yea, it would be cool if some things were gender specific and, seeing as this is a mud true to the Naruto universe, I don't think any girls would complain about not being a samurai, and I doubt any boys will complain about not being able to be <insert female only class here>.

It would add a bit more variety to things... and I'd like to see what new skills you'd come up with for each... it seems fun.

Just my ideas.

I love this idea, seeing as how im deifinatly not a fan of ninjas at all, but i play cuz Gatz is the best coder on earth, and the MUD kicks ass in terms of fun. And its not that players -wont- be able to play male or female specific classes, they will just have to play the opposite gender, which i do sometimes. Personaly being a huge fan of Samurai, i would love to see this come into the game as soon as possible! :D

Maybe you can come up with a female class to, like Shrine Maiden, you know instead of samurai. Males could be samurai females could be shrine maidens.
