>A fantasy Kingdom that has both Japanese and European elements.
Ideas how the humans should look like?
Like much stuff from the mid 16th century, shortly after the Portugese arrived. Like this armour.
So... Cyrodiil (or at leas the cyrodiil we were supposed to get) >>45116955 only populated by Redguards (who are Japanese black people.)
So... what Kalpa is this and when can I play it?
Are the thalmor gone?
By elements, are we talking about a bunch of things jammed into the setting without alteration from the real world, or a bunch of things just being used as general inspiration?
Because if it's the former, then do whatever. It's already lazy worldbuilding so it doesn't matter what you do.
If it's the latter though, then what >>45116955 says sounds cool. Negroid, Polynesian, South Asian, anything - there's lots to choose from. If you've already picked a climate then go with what makes most sense from that perspective though.
>This is a normal knight, only with a Katana.
Fighting style is also pretty Japanese inspired. They'll step back in combat sheath their swords and do an iaijutsu strike. There's a boss who is the leader of the order exaggerates the style even further and if you kill him without taking damage has an alternate death animation where he commits seppukku.
Pretty clearly a mix if you know the source material.
Wheel of Time mixes a fair amount of Western and Eastern influences. You may want to look into it.
Do you mean arms and equipment elements, or societal elements? There's a pretty solid difference.
For what it's worth, Elder Scrolls does the first a bit with the Akaviri. It's not as obvious by Oblivion, but in Morrowind you had katana, wakizashi, and shuriken. No out-and-out yari or yumi, and no armor inspired by not!Japan though.
>He didn't even bother to lock-on.
Sir Alonne is an excellent fight if you bother to lock-on.
Fume Knight's just stupid, he's one of those enemies you really need to get into a rhythm for, but until his second stage the filthy bastard *has* no rhythm.
He's manageable if you're cautious with your hits and bring 99 lifegems, though.
Fume knight is

He and smelter raped me violently into the ground the first few times but by now they're some of the only bosses I can beat reliably without tanking a single hit.
I've done something with the local Westeros knockoff I've got in my setting, as they're sitting nearby a haunted Japan ripoff. Mostly they look like fair-haired Kazakhs with a little more english in them than Japanese.
I think a lot of the difficulty for me was that I was doing it on a greatsword build and refused to change to a faster weapon which made the timing on hitting his openings really really tight.
I know. I used to thing I liked DS2 but after playing bloodborne I feel like I've been living a lie. Things like rally and the speedy sidesteps just really get the adrenaline pumping. Even though I beat him on my first try (I was crazy overleveled) Gherman is one of the most fun fights I've had yet.
Look at real places where Japanese and European elements do mix.
Consider Taiwan, for instance.
Originally populated by the Austronesian aborigines, then settled by adventurous Han Chinese in the 13th century. Europeans established colonies in the 17th century, then the Japanese took over in the 1800's.
I've actually been brainstorming my own fantasy setting where the humans are basically Maori in a fantasy version of Polynesia/Australia/New Zealand but with cultural and technological borrowings from the setting's Japanese and European analogues.
The Japanese part used to be a former kingdom. Due to garbage technology, they were completely annihilated in a war by the European party and reduced to a servant class. Lords will often host death matches between domesticated Samurai, laughing as the two hopelessly bash cutting weapons against their armor in the dueling pits.
Hong Kong wold be a good one.
A perfect inspiration for a city that stradles the East and West and blends it all together so you have your !Europeans going to eat sushi from a guy who's named Itchy by the local westerns although his name is actually Ichimaru who was the son of a General who fled saving his mother and siblings after his father was betrayed and wishes to avenge him.
Well thats basically what the latest Fire Emblem is about..
Russian you say?
Now I want to make a setting where one half of the planet is fantasy Japan and the other half is fantasy Europe (a little bit like Tenra War) except the campaign focuses on places in the middle; fantasy Taiwan, fantasy Hong Kong, and fantasy
The king of that army was a huge weeb. A knight from the east rocked up and the king made him his second in command, which I guess led to all his knights rocking katanas. He's got an army of regular knights at his home tower, not to mention iron golem dudes.
The katana knight army's main threat was mindless undead, which the katanas would have been fine for. It wasn't until the king turned into a dragon demon that the knights turned undead and the katanas would have been useless.
