You mistake it for a good samurai story. The only dishonor for a ninja is getting caught.
1. A lot of stealth missions.
2. Evil samurai antagonist / rival ninja clan
3. Shinobi magic and special techniques.

Also, I will post arandom mission generator for a ninja game from Naruto RPG. Don't have the whole book though.

I remember the scene where the government just shines a spotlight on the ninjas and gunned them down with a machine gun.

Ninjas are surrounded by trickery and the story must follow suit. There should always be more going on than it seems.

I believe that everyone else here, while having the best of intentions, has mislead you on how to have the true essentials of a ninja story. What you need is Austrailians, specifically Godfrey Ho youtube.com/watch?v=yd_1HJbMngE youtube.com/watch?v=oux0dPxUB20 youtube.com/watch?v=dly-gMAtu4U

All japanese-inspired media must feature a heavy dosage of MUH HONOUR.
Dishonor for a ninja is failing a mission. Getting caught is perfectly honourable if it is part of the plan to complete the mission.

His role lends itself to being a window to the political events and court intrigues of the setting.

By going alone or working with nothing less than the best of the best (another ninja), he gets shit done that would baffle an army. Getting a castle gate under guard open somehow, or assassination of a guarded leader, are some cliches.

His gear is basically equipment porn of the times, a lot of it should be used in the story because everything there has a purpose.

He's a warrior-assassin, but has a network of less action oriented ninjas in his clan working with him. A sister might have infiltrated the target's harem in advance, and is smuggling in the weapons the ninja will use in the op. A cousin runs an ordinary business in that town, which has a safehouse.

The daimyo tries to secretly betray the ninja when the job is done, because both he and the ninjas know the game - honor is all for the daimyo, and the ninjas can hold their service over his head once he's in power.
