It should come as no surprise that the re-worked sci-fi setting is based very much on the original Seven Samurai/Magnificent Seven movies, recounting the story of a small rice village that is harassed by bandits every harvest time. The bandits are now becoming more demanding and now taking women and children.
The elders decide that to protect the village they must hire Samurai, but with no money they search out a group that will agree to protect the village for a payment of rice.
Three members are sent to the city to recruit the Samurai and the adventure begins. This illustration shows the seven samurai.
