Like in many games, Ninjato will contain a small hub world that you will start the game in. This is essentially the safe zone to access options, controls, look at player stats, equip items and gear before starting on your mission, or as a place to practice weapons or to train in combat.
I'm in the process of putting this world together as a primary area for people to play test the various mechanics. Since I love secrets, this hub world will contain locked doors, places to explore, contain hidden items and weapons that you can unlock and use for the main game.
