The people of the Capital City of Gin were on the brink of something great. It was an unheard of time of education, knowledge and discovery. New technologies allowed a budding middle class to form, while fewer were needed to focus on producing food. The city of Gin became vast, larger than any city before it and spanned as far as the eye could see. But just before the crux of their renaissance, the Shinobi arts suddenly exploded into the mainstream. Suddenly, their inventions were overshadowed by mystical forces beyond their immediate grasp. Their technologies declined in demand, while their scientists who were working on military technologies began to disappear under the assault of foreign Shinobi. That's when it happened. The ruling council of the City of Gin decided that drastic measures had to be taken. They secretly sent out scouts to all corners of the known world, offering money or technology to any Shinobi willing to defect and teach them the ways of the Ninja Arts. One responded, a man who insisted on only being called Kage came back to Gin. He was dying from an illness so severe that several of Kage's limbs had to be replaced. Utlizing the best of their technology, they were able to bring the man back to his fullest, if not better. In return, he kept his promise.
The Shinobi of the Capitcal City Gin are a new breed. Approaching the Ninja Arts with an unheard of scientific scrutiny, they instantly took an affinity for Ninjutsu. Many lack the subtletey of their peers, often employing explosives and heavy technology to aid them but no on can argue with their results. But the life of a Shinobi and the life of an Inventor in Gin are different ones, and few are able to adapt to both lifestyles well enough to be true Gin Shinobi. Several Programs have been initiated inside the city limites for select Shinobi willing to risk dangerous training or physical augmentation to gain an edge. The ones who have are without equal and will fight to ensure the survival of their city and way of life.
