Saniwa (審神者) : Refers to us players, who have traveled to the past to change history. The Saniwa’s appearance (gender, etc.) is not defined in the game. Saniwa can be loosely translated as simply “sage”. In the Shinto religion, saniwa are specialized priests/folklorists tasked with the identification of the gods.
Selecting Your Starter Sword
When you start the game, it will ask you which server to choose. You can choose whichever you’d like, it won’t affect your gameplay other than your PVP opponents. Wait for confirmation (this takes time). Then, you will proceed to watch the introduction video of the game. Afterwards, the game asks you to write in your name and pick your starter sword.
All of their types are Uchigatana (打刀). Don’t worry too much about deciding which sword to choose, as all the starter swords are Uchigatana with similar stats, and you will have the opportunity to obtain the other swords via Smithing or as a drop from Sorties. The starter sword you choose will not affect gameplay.
