Assassin

The Guild has made no arrangements for the training of the Assassin skill. Members must make their own arrangements outside of the Guild (and preferable outside of Carzala). Because this is an unlawful skill members are advised to take care when pursuing it.

Kinlu Skills

The Guild has arranged a standing introduction for all trustworthy guild members to Kyoshi (master instructor) Gozi Kurushi of the Nishizaki Niten Ichi-ryu (sword school), due in no small part to the excellent reputation earned by his first western student, Pent.

The school can provide training up to maximum rank in several weapons, and up to Rank 8 in Kenjutsu. Students will have to seek out and arrange a separate personal tutor for Ranks 9 & 10 in Kenjutsu (but will likely have made useful contacts by then through the school, which can be used by their GM). Students will also find themselves immersed in the Erelheine culture and language, and it is recommended that a smattering of each is learnt, as the Guild does not guarantee students' safety if they offend their sensei or high-ranking visitors.

Students will have to make their own travel arrangements, and pay the school's training costs (which are somewhat more than normal Guild rates). The effective training costs will be at least twice normal, plus an initial gift worth some 500sp to Gozi-sensei - but no living costs are required: the school will provide a tatami mat in a student dormitory and feeds its pupils (though one may become sick of fish and rice).

The Nishizaki Niten Ichi-ryu is located in Nishizaki, a small town on a coastal promontory some 20 miles to the north-west of the Kinlu portal in Kyoshin. The town is largely centered around its fishing industry and its famous sword school for the children of Samurai families of House Tajin. The school is home to as many as 1,000 pupils at any time, ranging in age from 5 to 25 years, and primarily teaches the daisho swords (Katana & Wakazashi) and Kenjutsu (and its sub skills). Some pupils also study the No-Daichi, and there are also tutors available for Yari and Naginata.
