Torii is a skirmish war game created by Miniatures Y Wargames, using the Kensei range of miniatures from Zenit Miniatures. With Torii you will be able to use all the miniatures range of Kensei to create skirmishes between the different clans, aiming to accomplish the missions from their Taisho. The Buke have protected and farmed for centuries the land of the islands, paying vassalage to the Emperor. They were considered the arms of the Empire, the strength and the sword. Since most of them were rural samurai, a class lower than the Kuge, they were despised. While the Emperor was alive, they were honored simply because they could serve him, bound by their strict code of honor. But after his death they were taken aback. After much discussion on who should be the following emperor, a lot of Kuge re-considered their loyalty, and this led, over time, to the appearance of new clans governed by the Buke families. These new rebellious Daimyo started to act on their own, stopped paying tribute to the Kuge and pulled themselves together in their territories. Now, these new Daimyo are imposing the belief that the Kuge are corrupted and weak. They have started to build great castles to protect themselves from the old lords and from others like them. From their walls, they gaze at their neighbors' lands and plan their conquer to increase their power. They are resolved to start a new era in which the samurai govern the islands, a new order in which the Emperor would be a mere puppet managed by the warriors' real strength. These rural samurai are tough fighters, hardened from life in the mountains, who follow the ancestral warrior's code, the Bushido. As children, they are trained in the art of swordplay and they consider the use of foreign firearms dishonorable. They are great riders and archers; one of the most fearful warriors in the Intermediate World.

With Torii you will be able to use all the miniatures range of Kensei to create skirmishes between the different clans, aiming to accomplish the missions from their Taisho. The Kuge consider themselves the head of government. Together with the emperor, whom they were related to, they made the great decisions on the fate of the Empire. They have dominated the trade routes and the diplomatic relations with distant places for years gone by, so most of the big cities were under the Kuge families rule. The Kuge clans assure that they are direct descendants of the Emperor and, while he was alive, they went with him around the Court in the Imperial City spending most of their time with court intrigues. They were served and maintained by the taxes paid by the Buke and the Sohei from rural areas. Thus, they got rich thanks to trade and speculation at the expense of others' work. After the Emperor's death, their excessive ambition and the arrogance due to their believing themselves superior prevented them from reaching an agreement. Step by step the trail of death and betrayal in the Imperial City forced them to trust nobody. They all went back to their respective hometowns and to the lands they ruled from a distance to isolate and protect themselves from the intrigues of the rest of their caste. They built their own palaces at those rural redoubts, where they imitated life in court, and surrounded themselves with vassals who know how to captivate them with their praises. There they lived, each of them believing themselves to be the chosen one to succeed to the golden throne. The Kuge consider themselves to be honorable simply because divine blood flows through their veins and they are certain of their not having to prove their honor. Thus, they will not doubt to use the most dishonorable methods to reach their goals.

Torii is a skirmish war game created by Miniatures Y Wargames, using the Kensei range of miniatures from Zenit Miniatures. With Torii you will be able to use all the miniatures range of Kensei to create skirmishes between the different clans, aiming to accomplish the missions from their Taisho. The time of samurai and aristocracy has ended and a new class arises from the ashes of old clans that have disappeared because of the war. Many port cities have risen up against their lords, declaring their independence and that of the surrounding lands. These new regions are ruled by old families of Hymukai traders who have taken advantage of the power vacuum created by the disappearance and weakening of many lords. The samurai have always considered traders a wretched class and they have committed all sort of abuses against them. Now, in order to avoid the increasingly frequent looting and attacks they have organized into family clans called Otokodate. Some of them even have their own moral rules, different from Bushido, known as Kikotsu. Their main aim is to grant safety and trade, expanding their power as a web which their enemies cannot escape from. The constant threats have led to the creation of their own armies, which defend the new laws passed for their personal convenience. In general, the Otokodate blame the samurai for the oppression and chaos in Hymukai, but they do not hesitate to use those who have become Ronin and adopt their same behavior. The Ronin, or lord-less samurai, are abundant in a time in which families rise and fall at the same speed as seasons change. The Otokodate have long controlled trade with faraway lands and have granted Hymukai wealth. Many have already savored the sweetness of power and now they dream of governing Hymukai; in order to achieve that, they will not hesitate in using anything at their disposal. They will not fear facing the samurai armies to carry out their plans.

With Torii you will be able to use all the miniatures range of Kensei to create skirmishes between the different clans, aiming to accomplish the missions from their Taisho. The Sohei consider themselves the heart of the Empire. In the Dragon's Islands, the Sohei have always been a separate power, keeping their privileges in front of the Kuge and the Buke. For several centuries, they have trained warrior monks to protect them from any interference they consider as opposed to their way of life or their morality. When the conflict between the Kuge and the Buke started to devastate the fields, the peasants, helpless, had to seek shelter and beseech Sohei monasteries and temples to help them. As they contemplated the people's suffering they started to position themselves beside them, "in favor of the most disadvantaged". Then they started to preach about a new era of darkness and about the need to protect themselves from that era. Thus they were increasing their power and attracting more and more people who entrusted the Kami of that temple with their souls. They imposed their own rules over their territories, based on religion, and the stopped following the Imperial Law. Some Buke Daimyo, sorry for their way of life joined their cause and they were ordained monks, built temples on their fields and give shelter to the refugees coming from other lands. The Sohei consider themselves the protectors of faith and tradition in the Dragon's Islands as opposed to foreign preachers, who sell firearms to the Kuge, and the Buke oppressors, who believe themselves superior to the Heinin. But these clans are divided into uncountable sects, who struggle among themselves for trivial issues such as who is to be in charge of the performance of the spring ritual. The confrontations between the main temple complexes in the Heian-Jo mountains to see who was in charge of the Ayanami millennial rites are famous. A lot of temples were burnt to ashes in these clashes, including some of the most famous rooms and even the Great Statue of Ayanami. It was an irreversible loss for both the temples and the art in the islands.
