Ninja vs. Samurai RPG revolves around storytelling.  The Game Manager is responsible for guiding the players through scenarios looking for specific items, performing daring rescues, assassinating key figures, ridding a village of demons or enemy factions, or whatever story comes to pass.  The player's responsibilities are to stay within the parameters of the characters that they have created and find ways to successfully complete the mission at hand.  The limits to the realm of Ninja vs. Samurai RPG are only bound by the imagination of those who enter.
