Well I am looking for someome Samruai -ish and well i ve gone through all the 3.5 material I can find and nothing so far ... sure I could go Fighter and just rename everything (which it seems like I will be doing) but anyone have some rules anywhere (legal would be great) I would greatly appreciate it ...

For starters, we have a Roleplaying forum. As per the sticky in there, its for the discussion of games, as well as playing.

To behelpful and answer your question, does the Complete Fighter not have anything in it about Samurai? Failing that, Sword and Fist (3.0) and Oriental Adventures (I think the 3.0 book is called) have a great deal of stuff, including samurai classes (the later book) and prestie class (the former). They should require little to no tweakin for 3.5

The Complete Fighter book has a samarui class in it if I'm not mistaken. If my friend that has virtually everything memorized from 3.5 is online later I'll ask him just to be sure.

Excellent thank you for the help.

Yep, as far as I remember, one of the new Core classes for 3.5 is the Samurai in the Complete Fighters Handbook. It's pretty sweet, too, better than the prestige class in the Sword & Fist book.

The old AD&D Oriental Adventures book is worth a read if you're creating Samurai characters, as they have a whole chapter dedicated to calculating your family, ancestors and stuff like that. Really detailed, and gives an excellent flavour to your character.

One of the best ever role playing sourcebooks, actually. Full of great stuff.

The old GW Land of the Ninja Runequest book also is great for background detail.

Agreed.. that's another great book. Not as detailed as the AD&D one, but not as dry either.

I got the complete warrior but I think that if you make a fighter that only specialises in samurai weapons, would get it closer to the feeling of a samurai than the samurai class in there.

(edit: In the complete warrior its called a Ronin and you get sneak attack bonus)

You're talking about a completely different book because I just checked the WOTC Complete Warrior and no sneak attack at all.

3.5 Complete warrior, p. 77-78. Ronin an ex samurai....no?

This is D&D right?

I am leaning towards Fighter/Master Samurai Prestige Class

That's probably not a bad way to go. With fighter you get all the sweet extra feats to customize your character and really make him a nasty bugger in combat, then you can refine him with the Master Samurai PC.

Look at the front of the book at the Samurai class which doesn't have that.
