I'm playing as Hattori as my 1st clan. Doing great so far very slow progress but fun, I like that you can buy 5 mercs at a time for 1 big attack but be forced to sell them right after because of the upkeep. One problem I am having though is that I can't find out how to recruit kisho/retainer ninja for battles. It seems like they are in it because i completed a mission to unlock 1 ninja retainer but can not find in the tech system how to make them myself. Help would be appreciated
My reason for this is because the Ikko-Ikki are not a faction but a religious resistance movement. The way I have them represented in MBS allows any clan to recruit them but you have to deal with the turmoil of having two religions growing in your regions (Buddhist and Ikko).
I want to remove the Hattori and replace them with a minor clan because I do not like having entire units of ninja on the battlefield.
I decided to have just ONE kisho ninja unit available in this mod but I made it a Hatamoto unit and placed it on a high tier building so that you really gotta want it to spend the money to build all those buildings.
For now, as you mentioned, the Hattori get this single kisho ninja unit right out of the gate simply by completing a mission. Everyone else has to build for it.
Criminal Syndicate + Magistrate = the ability to recruit the kisho ninja Hatamoto unit
The Criminal Syndicate is on the Stealth chain in the castle.
The Magistrate is located on the Regional Specialty slot and is one of the initial buildings you can create on level 1 along with the Artisans, Blacksmith, etc.
Since I am still in BETA, I am focused on getting features working and balancing the mod. Once I go on to a regular release, I will focus on cosmetics and shuffling things around to a point where I am happy.
I hope you will try some of the other factions and test the different OS I have in this mod. Each OS is played differently so you will have a new experience each time.

Step right up folks!
That's right! BETA Version 004 is up! (see the OP)
The main change in this release is the 12 turns per year I implemented and limiting the farm levels to the soil fertility of the regions.
I know there are some people that don't like that many turns in a game so I left version 003 links available to those that want to keep playing the regular 4tpy.
So here is the Change Log for v004:
BETA Version 004- (only use this one if you want 12 turns per year! Otherwise keep using v003)
Implement 12 turns per year = done!
Adjust all income to match 12tpy = done!
Adjust build times to match 12tpy = done!
Adjust some bldg costs = done!
Adjust some tech requirements = done!
Remove resource requirement from imported matachlocks = done!
Adjust available farm levels to match soil of region = done!
Worked on reducing vanilla rebellion troops = (still not complete)
Worked on LUA file = (still not complete)
Add Catholic religion requirement to build Nanban Trade Port = done! (testing this, might change)
Work on CAI tables = done! (still adjusting for perfection)
Farm levels to region soil:
Barren Land- Rice Paddies only
Meager Soil- Up to Improved Irriagation only
Average Soil- Up to Terraces only
Fertile/ Very Fertile- Up to Land Consolidation
As soon as I finish this v_004 campaign I am playing-testing and get all the fixes incorporated, I will be posting BETA version 005 which will have both a 12tpy and 4tpy version to play.

mmmm 12 turns perfect
Now you have time to destroy buildings that the AI screwed up and built and make the regions more suited to your own build strategy.
Also, if you noticed, I made the castles really expensive and take a long time to build. This I think is more realistic and it helps the late game because when you start capturing all those fortresses and castles toward the end, you run out of food pretty fast.
Version 005 I will tweak the Ikko troops a little to make them more viable over the standard Buddhist troops. They already have better stats in some cases but I want to lower their upkeep like I did with the wako troops.
The Ikko (troops, not the faction) really do have some nice heavy samurai units if you are willing to build the structures. I think if you stationed a monk inside the castle where you are building the Ikko temples and build a large Buddhist temple in a region adjacent to the Ikko region, it will help to hold down the spread of the Ikko faith.

I believe it affects all provinces, or at least it is supposed to. I will check on it and if it doesn't I will have it fixed in version 005.
The Hatamoto ninja retainer is currently under the wrong building chain. I did not realize it until now. It should only be recruited from the Ninja Rspec slot.
I will have to fix that. Thanks for pointing it out.
Maybe I will create a merc ninja unit and make it only available from the Stealth slot in the castle. This way those factions that don't have the Ninja Rspec slot can still recruit a kisho unit but at a much higher cost and upkeep than you get with the other variant. What do you think?
