    I would've loved it if I was born as a ninja in feudal Japan. How great would it have been to grow up as a boy in one of the legendary hidden villages of the Iga or Koga clans. Trained from infancy to become great warriors and assassins. Masters of stealth and technique. I...

    I Love Swords.

    And bows and arrows and javelins and many other things. Since I am not able to fight, I write books and stories and stuff about it. It's the next best thing, I suppose.
