Shōken (Heroic Martial Artist) and Articulation Demonstration!

The Fwoosh revealed another one of their stretch goal figures, Shōken (Heroic Martial Artist)!

SURPRISE! Our 3rd reveal is Shōken (heroic martial artist)… check him out!

Shōken was a small, thin child who dreamed of life outside the village, a life informed by stories of skilled warriors and constant adventure. But his reality was vastly different than his dreams. The only son of a widower father who had lost a leg as a young man, Shōken’s only adventure was being bullied by the rougher, tougher kids in the village. However, fate intervened when their village was overtaken by a band of marauders. Shōken was ashamed and believed his father was a coward when he willingly handed over a portion of his meager profits to the leader of the band of thieves. Deeming his portion too small, the Warlord snapped the crippled man’s crutches and threw him to the ground, laughing at his misfortune. Shōken screamed for his father to fight back, receiving a vicious backhand from the leader that sent him sprawling to the ground. Angered at the threat to his son, Shōken’s father sprang to his one good foot and put down the larger men with blinding speed. With a heavy heart, Shōken’s father agreed to teach his son the skills he would need to survive in the world. Years passed in training, and the small, thin child became a warrior himself. When his father passed, Shōken left the village, quickly finding the adventure he had sought as a child.

Fumetsu (Undying Ronin)

The Fwoosh revealed Fumetsu (Undying Ronin), one of the stretch goals for their Articulated Icons: The Feudal Series Kickstarter campaign!

After Itami left behind the cabal of hardened thieves and murderers he had forged, his soul burned. Nightmares plagued his sleep. There was only one way to atone for the horror he had wrought on the world: Seppuku. Itami climbed the highest cliff and there he found a nameless samurai, dead by his own hand. Itami smiled at the peace he saw in the samurai’s eyes. No nightmares plagued this man. As the sun dipped low, Itami slid a knife into his stomach and felt his life fade with the passing light. Soon cold moonlight fell on his still body. But when the first blades of the fresh morning sun sliced a clean stroke across his face, his eyes raked open and he shoved himself from the tepid pool of his own blood, sucking in a jagged gasp of air. Unwanted by even death itself, Itami took it as a sign that he must make amends for the pain he caused. He took the armor from the dead man and forsook his birth name, as it was now stained with shame. Having cheated death, he took the name Fumetsu and roamed the lands searching for trouble, hoping that he would find the peace at the end of an opponent’s blade that he could not find for himself.

Shibito (Warrior Monk) Revealed!

The Fwoosh revealed one of their stretch goal figures, Shibito (Warrior Monk)!

Out of the 7 blurred out Stretch Goal figures, Shibito was voted as the first character you guys wanted to see revealed, well here he is!

Performing the solitary training exercise Mugen No Baransu (infinite balance) at the peak of Mount Hiei, the warrior monk Ichiro was absent when his home temple was attacked by rivals. Ichiro returned to a temple gutted by fire, his fellow warriors dead. Overcome by rage and grief, Ichiro declared himself dead as well in honor of his fallen brothers, taking the name Shibito. After single-handedly taking revenge on those responsible, Shibito was left a warrior without a home. He found brief respites in quiet villages and took menial jobs to survive, but found he couldn’t keep from using his considerable skills to help the weak. As his reputation grew, so did those who wished to challenge his skills. Shibito found that he was not destined for a life of peace.
