With the lands at the furthest reaches of the Golden Empire descending into chaos, the ruling clan led by the Takashi family face threats from every side, the last thing they need is the shadow of the ninja cast upon them. In a game the ninja players attempt to attain their secret aims whilst searching for items and equipment to help them achieve this. They must do this without raising the alarm and escape successfully with their lives. At the same time the guard player attempts to stop them at all costs, throwing all his resources into eliminating the vermin that attack from the shadows.
Will you try to further the mysterious, yet surely nefarious goals of the Kage Kaze Zoku, the Shadow Wind Clan, OR will you guard the life and honour of the Daimyo of the Prefecture of Ryu?
