Apply in writing to your local daimyo or to the shogun's court. Imagine that you are living in ancient Japan. Samurai warriors are among the most respected people in your society-that is what you want to be! How do you become a Samurai? Do you have what it takes? The reader will learn exactly what the requirements for being a Samurai are. What kind of families do warriors come from? What sort of training do they get? The Samurai developed a tradition of values and personal conduct. They valued horsemanship, skill with the bow, strong self-discipline, and bravery. Above all, they prized total obedience and loyalty to their lords, and personal honor. If the Samurai were dishonored, they would consider it a duty to commit ritual suicide. You'll want to know what sort of weapons you'll need. Samurai sleep with their swords! And you'll be required to provide your own armor. What sort of campaigns will you fight in? Where will you live? How will you be paid? How will you advance in rank? Will you be married?
