Aisenshi

From LSWiki

Jump to: navigation, search

The Aisenshi, or unity warriors, distinguish themselves by their honor and their singleminded devotion to the use of a single weapon form.

To use Aisenshi powers you must have the philosophy skill.

The Aisenshi require you to maintain an ordered outlook of at least "honorable" to advance.

The Aisenshi communication channel is accessed with the commands 'aisenshi' and 'guild'.

Help files are available on the following topics:

Requirements to Join

Aisenshi requires specialty points in following skills: Calligraphy, Discipline, Dodge, Literacy, Martial Arts, Meditation, Kyotsugo, Philosophy, Practice, Precision Strike, Scholarship, and in the basic weapon skill one chooses to devote with. The details are in the spoilers section.

You must also have some skill in Kyotsugo; a lack thereof is regarded as some type of inability to grasp Aisenshi philosophy (as helpfully explained in Kyotsugo).

If you wish to leave you must have gained at least three levels since joining to do so, and possess a rating of at least 120 in Philosophy.


You say, [- I seek the path of the Aisenshi -] in beautifully-accented Anglic.

Musashi says, <> If one would study with a master, it is customary to make a gift appropriate to the teacher's stature. <> to you.

You give **the gift** to Musashi with your right hand.

Musashi bows slightly to you.

Musashi says, <> Domo arigato gozaimas. <> to you in Kyotsugo.

Musashi says, <> Your gift shows respect. If you still seek the path of the Aisenshi, say so. <> to you in Kyotsugo.

Spoiler warning: information below includes details, such as solutions to puzzles or quest procedures, that you may prefer to discover on your own.

The gift

Do not overthink it. It is simpler than first feels. Musashi will happily accept many a thing one might not consider "worthy". The gift doesn't even need to be expensive or rare. Use your imagination and try. If he doesn't accept it, he will politely give it back to you (or at least tries to, if you haven't trusted him, he will just drop the item).

Some real spoilers in the end...
