      Oriental Mysteries clan (Signups and Discussion)

      I just need to work out the details, like the name, and what we are going to do in the clan.

      Those who are interested please help me put this together and get it going. The idea is to be a ninja clan and much more to include the Yakuza, Chinese culture, Samurai, religions, Korean pop, etc. Yes quite a broad category and stuff I don't know anything about. That's where our members come in. Each person can share their expertise and joy and be recognized for it.




      Should we talk Ninja Movies, Marital Art Movies, etc.?

      Should we talk Manga and Anime Orientally related stuff?

      Should we host Ninja games?

      Should we Role-play?

      Should we talk about some of the great books and other written material?

      Should we write books or fanfics?

      Talk about the real history of Ninjas?

      Make comparisons to what's real and what isn't?

      Talk about any and all games based on Ninjas?

      Share photos, or paintings on Ninjas?

      And should it be more focus? Are left broad as the current name suggests and includes all that is of the Orients and what it holds?

      Should we include Samurai and monks in it? And/or other oriental ideas like a Shogun?




      Basically, I believe in this clan we are going to mainly be discussing things about these countries what makes them unique, all sorts of stuff. It'll be about entertainment, intellectual engaging conversations, what we admire about them, plus even talking about what we think might be ridiculous. Of course perhaps our views will change, but hopefully as a result everyone who joins will experience something they enjoy or they find to be agreeable. Not to say everything discussed will be agreed upon, nor do I think they should be. I think discovering what others believe or know is a beneficial experience even if emotions are strained.

      Martial arts movies would give us a wider selection.

      There's a forum for that.

      I don't see why not? I've always liked the non-fiction book Japanese Inn that discusses the very intersting history of an Inn on the Tōkaidō.

      Short stories, sure. Books can be a little long, but a great thread wouldn't hurt.

      Certainly! What little we know if it, anyway.

      In for a penny, in for a pound. Can't really talk about the one without bringing in the other.

      Lots of stuff to talk about concerning arts movie. I think it'd be a cool thing to add. The question now should extend to Hong Kong Movies? Korean Dramas, etc?

      Why not? CL ran a Ninja game not long ago, so something along that line perhaps.

      I like roleplaying myself, xD. What do your prefer? Casual, Intermediate, or Advanced?

      Oh, I need to investigate that, sounds quite interesting. Which propels this discussion further. We should certainly share valuable literature sources on the Orients. Japanese culture and history is quite interesting.

      Sharing and developing ideas might be one thing but writing a novel quite another, xD. I meant stories at longest 30 pages. ^_^

      It's true history on ninjas is quite disputable, while on Samurai there's plenty of it. But there is a load of other history from the Oriental country that are quite interesting as well.

      Quote Originally Posted by Expendable View Post

      xD, that's one of them yeah. But I'm talking about the overly expressed characters too. Or real traditions vs fake ones or created ones to appeal to western audience more so. That sorta thing.

      Quote Originally Posted by Expendable View Post

      I suppose that's debatable, xD, but yes I'd include them as well, if there was interest in it.

      I think there many awesome photos depicting the orients that'd be cool to share. I even did a orient art project for school once. Although I did share it, I'd love to share it again.

      I like the idea of a broad category. It's like the ninja clan we had, but this clan I want to be more inclusive and cover a larger range of topics. Hold interests for everyone that has an interest in any of the culture aspects of the oriental, rather it is historical, fictional, modern, futuristic, entertainment, culture, art, etc. Interest related to what the Eastern portion of our world has contributed to the West. ^_^

      Re: Oriental Mysteries clan (Signups and Discussion)

      Saw a black and white photo once in a book on the ninja showing a group practicing in a park in the 1940's - caption said people walking by mistook it for some variant of Aikido.

      Re: Oriental Mysteries clan (Signups and Discussion)

      I really like the idea of a Samurai or Rōnin warrior Idk if the name Orienal is exactly PC but if no one has issues I guess it works as a broad term

      Re: Oriental Mysteries clan (Signups and Discussion)

      I had never heard of Oriental as word that was insulting or not PC. This is new to me. It surprised so much that I searched for it. As it turns out the word Oriental is illegal to use in any federal documents in the US. Wow, it really is considered to be a politically incorrect term.

      I mean, I have no problem with using a different word than Oriental. Asian Mysteries instead? Or Mysteries of the Far East?

      Do know what book that was? Sounds like it might hold some other interesting tidbits in it.

      I suppose Aikido was pretty popular back then. There was a lot of new martial arts being introduce a the time from various Asian countries into the US and I believe European countries.

      In fact it wouldn't hurt to discuss the various different martial art forms and their origins, purpose, and how they have developed.
