    Introduction

    Welcome to the Naruto RP : The Rise of the New Generation. This an alternative universe apart from the cannon. A story and RP that has been going on for at least two years, an RP where history has been made literally by the players and for the players. We hope that you will like your stay and wish you the best while being part of the RP. Any questions? Then please take contact with the GM's of the RP. The RP accept newcomers and interested people within our midst as it most likely will have a place where one can start and grow into the story. No matter what arc or situation!

    The Rules

    • Rule no. 1: Don't be a jackass. To put it in plain, simple words; criticism is okay, swearing at others isn't.
      Rule no. 1B: People don't like each other, that's natural. What isn't natural is bullying them into oblivion. If an argument escalates, be the better person and walk away. Or else ask one of the GM's to help you.

      Rule no. 2: If you don't agree with someone or something, you can tell them that. Nobody is going to feel insulted because of that (lest you don't follow rule no. 1 and 1b.) and most actually feel like you helped them. However remember that the GM's always have the last word, don't argue with them if they don't agree with what you say. It's fine to bring it up, it's not fine to drag an argument on for pages. Again, try to contact one of the other GM's if you can't agree with one of the decisions. But stay civil at all times.

      Rule no. 3: Create a genin first. Don't spam the thread asking if you can be a jounin or kage or whatever you want to be. We can't just give every rank away when there is no spot for it. Besides, some ranks won't be given if we have the idea you're too inactive. Bit blunt, but true.

      Rule no. 4: Keep your characters logical. Nobody has ever seen a genin with the power of a kage. It has to make sense to be accepted. Else look at the ranking information link for more detailed information.

      Rule no. 5a: Don't complain about the roster not being updated. If your character has been accepted by two GM's, you are free to post. The character roster is just something to help. If after a while you haven't been added yet, contact either : Gerontis or one of the GM's.

      Rule no. 5b : Keep in mind that if you join, that every character is property of you and the RP. IF you get kicked, banned or leave then your character will belong to the GM's as they see fit. With getting accepted, you've agreed to this rule. It isn't about us wanting to have your character, but it allows the GM team to do something if it ends up freezing a scene or such. We don't use this rule unless the situation is dire need of it.

      Rule no. 6: Much like the rule with the genin, if the Head Gm or OOC GM's don't think your capable of handling another character( no matter what rank), based on performance or activity, then they have the full right to deny the character on this rule. If you don't agree, don't drag it out but try to talk with the Head GM or ask one of the other GM's to help you. Though keep in mind to turn back the decision, a majority of the GM Team needs to agree on the matter.

      Rule no. 7: In order to keep things fun for everyone and to put emphasis that this RP is story-based and not all about killing, raping and murdering somebody else, you can't kill one character without the permission of the creator/owner of the character. The only other was is to ask and let the Head GM agree on the action to kill the character of the other person. Also, don't be overly using gore. If you violate this rule, then don't look surprised if we take measures to keep you out of fights for a very long time.

      Rule no. 8. : Not all characters can have a mangekyou sharingan, eternal sharingan or whatever you may desire. Keep it logical or don't keep it at all. Custom gekkei genkai in the form of dojutsus will be accepted when they make sense. The more traits a KG will give, the harsher we will be with grading it. This also counts for how we will review high ranked tech's, and other things like Space-Time Jutsu.

      Rule no 9. : Even if you don't like them, respect the GM's and Moderators. They are the people that try to make it fun for everyone with ideas and to keep order. Give them also some credit for trying to be around to help people with questions and doing just more then having fun. Also, this rule counts in the chat. If you violate this rule, don't expect any kind of mercy. Not even from me.
      This also means that if one of them ask you to drop it, then drop it.

      Rule no 10. : Please don't, but really DON'T do anything rashly like running and becoming a missing nin without talking with the Head GM and GM's first. If you take an action like that, expect that you will likely be losing one character and then not being given some nice position for quite some long time. If you want to make a baddie, ask it to Gerontis, who can help you out with that. But notice that it sometimes might take a whole arc before your bad guy/girl gets into action.

    • A section that is dedicated to rules that apply towards a subject like a specific dojutsu or such, all in order to make some cannon stuff less OP or easy to abuse. This will be updated frequently.


      • Explaining the responsibilities of leading a team and having a commander position.


        • A team is led by a squad leader. This doesn't always have to be a jounin as chuunin can also lead squads. IC wise it is considered to lead, train and try to guide your students/squadmates. It is up to the leader of a team to organise missions and training. Though team members can easily try to find training and if they find their leader inactive enough, requesting a mission at the Jounin Commander (and if there is none, the kage/leader).

          It can happen that a team is being held up due a person being inactive or what so ever. In case this happens, a team leader can decide to godmod the character lightly - don't go overboard with this! - in order to get the team still moving. However, when the team is active and have an inactive team leader, they can approach the person who's in charge of the corps they belong to. This is often the Jounin commander and not the kage. Only approach the kage or higher if you can't get the jounin commander or any other commander.


        • A commander isn't just an honorary title, but a responsibility. Your character is leading a corps or detachment and needs to help thus ruling and managing the forces or some other field of the total leadership over a nation. This means that they are important for the management and can also try to suggest (OOC and IC wise) to their leader all kind of stuff. Perhaps your Guard commander has an idea on how to improve the efficiency of the police or guard corps? Your Jounin commander has a great suggestion on how to improve the discipline or another aspect of the forces?

          Be creative and like a team, try to see if you can else get an assignment from your leader. You practically can't say that you haven't got anything to do with your commander as you could see it as a loose based team/squad with the other commanders as your team members and your leader as the squad leader. Try to else get some connection going on and cooperate with your other commanders as it will benefit the nation as making it perhaps more fun to write for them.

          How to get a position


          To get a commander position you can easily ask for it. Approach the leader or an important person in a village and simply request it. It is alright to ask it, as it shows your interest. Probably you should ask it in a polite manner and not demand it.

          Another manner is to have a character being capable of a position. Commanders and higher ups are people who can be loyal and trustworthy, but also knowing a thing or two about politics or leading others. They are advisers, commanders and politicians. This means that a simple brute is less likely to be promoted to such a rank and responsibility. Do note however that a person of a position like these isn't going to be fighting on the front lines all the time. They are leaders, not simple brutes.


          What to do?


          A commander is capable of advising their leader. Trying to make suggestions on improving something and how. Leading their corps and manage it. A commander can thus lead a part of the village's forces or such if they are assigned to that role. Do remember that while a commander/leader is granted this right that they can lose it if their superior deems them unworthy. Thus, this isn't just a position of that a character is some powerhouse (as commanders don't need or will do a lot of combat), but one that comes with the responsibility to maintain it.






      • Due the many advantages of the Byakugan, the range isn't like the cannon of kilometres wide. Due the advantage one has in a combat situation, the max limit for starting characters or those who haven't trained it is roughly around twenty metres. One can increase this with training posts and such, but the max limit for even talented users is set to 40 metres.

        And before you think that this very unfair, keep in mind that a normal battle is fought out in an area of around 30 metres. The ability to zoom in and out requires chakra and can be taxing if done too much in a fight. Again, this isn't to pester those use this dojutsu, but seeing one can see through many (not all!) genjutsu, it is only to balance it out.

      • Unlike the cannon, one that has a sharingan eye can't just copy other elements that he/she hasn't mastered yet. One can't also copy sealing and other specialised fields if they don't have the required chakra control, mastery on the field and experience. Also, take note that the sharingan can't see through obstructions - such as dense smoke - in order to keep it balanced out.

        Due to the IC fact that only 30% of the Uchiha can activate their sharingan and the fact that most Uchiha PC's can/have awakened them I'll invoke a new rule. This is to make the sharingan, not a common phenomenon, as it isn't that common- at least not here.

        Everybody that has a PC Uchiha or character with (one) sharingan can't have another character with the dojutsu. The following Uchiha of the person is thus forced to be an Uchiha without the sharingan.


      • Some techniques as Body Flicker aren't allowed to be used in combat. They can be used outside combat or in order to arrive at a scene in what you might think as a cool way. But during combat or try to flee from it isn't allowed. Some high-speed techniques that are allowed in combat aren't allowed to become auto-dodge or hit movement nor can they be used in any reckless or careless manner to just win a battle.


      • Due one learns the basic things as that pain and the kai, otherwise, release can be used to break free from genjutsu, please don't be quick to just break out of a genjutsu. Certainly not when your character isn't experienced with or against genjutsu. Please remember that genjutsu aren't easy to execute and that a very cruel/grim image isn't easy to ignore.

        Unless your character has experienced or been hardened enough to ignore such visions and illusions. Otherwise, don't be a game breaker by instantly recognising genjutsu. This even goes for some high ranked characters!

      • Jinchuriki won't gain instant access to the chakra pools of their tailed beast or any ability that the beast can grant or that can be gained. To gain one or two requires one to 'tame' the beast. This means that they have opened the seal and either have gained the beast's approval and cooperation or being able to tame it with force. Also, note that even though a jinchuriki that has opened the seal and has gained some good chakra control, that they can't just go endlessly using ninjutsu.

        Due a human body, a jinchuriki needs to be careful to not keep on using chakra taxing technique one after another. If they do, they can end up in a 'chakra burning state'. This is a state where their body will start to ache and eventually will make them collapse.

      • War can happen at any time. With nations that employ a lot of military activity, it isn't rare to see one nation deploying forces in order to attack another or defend themselves. However, unlike the cannon, battles between armies here aren't about a mass of shinobi using ninjutsu or charging each other without proper formations. One of the facts is that the military isn't full composed out of shinobi. They form up around 35% of the total military force. This means that out of ten people in the military are 2 serving into the shinobi corps. It is after all not reasonable to occupy a region by just a specialised part of the military - due to being heavily outnumbered by the population and other factors. With this, it is thus argued that ninjutsu isn't a common sight among the large-scale battlefields.

        Ninjutsu and other chakra using fields and specialisations use hand signals it is an unwritten rule that one can't use it in the thick of battle. A second can be the difference between life and death. While you're trying to weave through the required hand signals, an arrow could have pierced your neck. And shinobi or not, once you're bleeding to death, you're done for it on the battlefield.

        The other aspect why it is only logical and realistic why armies won't use ninjutsu (seeing that most aren't heavily trained/educated in ninjutsu) is due the fact it exhausts their troops and also causes too much collateral damage. If your comrade next to you spit out a fireball in order to burn an enemy or two to ash, he could potentially damage allies. Or blind them due the smoke or fire. Due a battle being chaotic enough with people swinging weapons and trying to kill each other, it isn't thus advised to use ninjutsu. Some who won't require hand signals could work, but beware that they still require focus. And a slip of focus could result in death.

        Due this reason, warfare is a bit different here. Here, you could basically say :

        - Large scaled battles :
        Here forces are fighting in the 'traditional' manner. Cavalry, infantry and such formations are the only use of fighting one another. This is mostly done between large armies.

        - Big skirmishes
        Here it is a sort of light mix. Some groups could use ninjutsu, but the use of it is rare and only done on orders of the leading officer etc. This is mostly done between detachments of armies.

        - Skirmishes
        The typical Naruto Skirmishes. Basically, small groups of sides meeting each other and due the small size of the group using ninjutsu. Still not recommended to use chakra taxing or large scaled techniques as this can still tire out a shinobi as well alert other nearby enemy forces. These battles are also often the most frequent as small groups are being sent to do recon, assault or other tasks to undermine an enemy host before facing it in direct battle.

        Another thing one must take the notion of is that during large scaled battles that some might take up armour and arms that are meant to be used to protect one self better. After all, you can't jump around as in small or 1 vs 1 fights when you need to march and fight in order. And if you decide to jump up high, you're making yourself an easy target for enemy archers or other skirmishers. Next to annoying comrades and disrupting the formation.



        [ Soldiers - Shinobi ]

        Seeing that it has been asked and discussed several times, this section will explain several matters why the military isn't fully composed out of shinobi. To start, soldiers often start also at a young age with their career. This is because in the setting there isn't a social care as some of us enjoy. Meaning that children have and will be earlier accepted in adulthood. This is not only thus restricted to military careers but to all craftsmanship and jobs. The age of when people are generally considered adults is at the age of 16. Why this young? Because the life expectancy is lower in this setting, which is relatively closer to the 1600-1700's of our own time.

        Another reason why the military forces aren't composed out of shinobi is because the fact that the majority of the population isn't fond of them. There are clans and factions who train and focus on bringing forth the best kind of shinobi. We will not indulge in what kind of shinobi - as that alone can make this quite long as there are a lot of different 'style' shinobi. But the Shoji Occupation that happened in the year 474 showed and made it clear that the majority of the population isn't fond of shinobi. Of course, as always, there are unwritten rules and complications that make a civilian accept one infamous shinobi and not another. Mainly in how their reputation is, but the majority of the shinobi corps is less trusted than the 'regular soldiers'.

        Then there is the fact that soldiers have shown the use of chakra coating before. Not to make their weapons have much longer reach or being on par with shinobi. But for defensive purposes. A soldier is thus in terms of stamina and strength easily on par with shinobi - seeing that they are drilled almost every day unlike some shinobi - and are able to use a veil of chakra through the use of their shields or weapons to blockade a shinobi's attack. Meaning that a formation of soldiers can even form a protective wall against several shinobi users, who will exhaust themselves much faster.

        Though do note that this doesn't mean that shinobi or ninjutsu is useless in combat or warfare. It means that in some situations it just doesn't prevail or make shinobi superior over soldiers. Soldiers are more trained and at home in fighting as a cohesive unit where shinobi are more mobile with being able to walk over some surfaces. This, however, as with everything, has its costs as this will reveal who is and who isn't a shinobi. Leading that the enemy can try to take down the shinobi - who are often being given scouting and subterfuge operations - which can limit and hamper a military force.

        [ OOC Reasons : ]

        Some people however still question why this kind of war system, regardless of the IC fact that the majority of the population doesn't favour shinobi, is being worked instead of this or that. That is quite simple to explain actually. Ignoring the IC facts, there is the problem that when ninjutsu can decide the outcome of battles, sieges and war that only higher ranked characters can be of importance. Yes, it is true that with the current system that lower ranked characters will not be more important. However, they have more chance to be of importance. Where they can't use big ninjutsu to deflect another big ninjutsu attack or try to take down a jounin or other kind of elite shinobi, they can have their moments to shine on the battlefield. With the current system, they can be soldiers that now and then have their moments in the spotlight, managing to defend their commander who just got stabbed in the side. Or managing to try to hold a place together with soldiers to buy some time for their allies. That having said it is also much easier to write and follow this kind of battles than a whole mix of shinobi formations throwing ninjutsu at each other to gain the upper hand. Not to mention it can be quite repetitive as it will just be determined easier by which side has more jounin who are deadly in such situations.


      • Promotion can be gained in several manners. The promotion from genin to Chuunin can be easily done through the Chuunin exam or else having done enough missions. However, it is a bit trickier to become a specialised or full-fledged jounin. This requires one to gain the personal permission of the leader(s). Next to that, skill in battle isn't all that it takes to become a jounin. A (specialised) jounin are regarded as officers or higher ranked personal.

        Having a simple strong brute leading them can lead to devastating defeats, meaning that jounin are people who have been trained or at least know the drills and ways of leading others. Failing in doing so can lead to demotion, which can be done with the proper reason. Such as failing miserably due not leading the forces in the proper way (thus doing almost no leading when it is required).

    • Combat Guide: Action - Reaction


      While combat isn’t the most important aspect of Naruto it certainly plays a huge role. Alternatively, that also reflects on Naruto role-plays. While not the most important aspect, and certainly not the most focused, it still plays a role within the world. Though, unlike the canon series, combat is much more difficult in a role-play. Instead of one mind deciding how things should go, in a role-play there are multiple minds; multiple minds flinging totally different ideas and outcomes. While ultimately up to the players to determine the outcome and results of combat, this guide is to help people understand the basic principles of actions within combat and so on.

      Something very important to note right off the bat is that Shinobi are still human. Yes, human; humans with physical capabilities that surpass that of your average Joe. Humans nonetheless, meaning you won’t be completely throwing physics out the window. There are still important factors to consider such as timing, distance, power, and so on. For example, if you’re swinging a sword at an opponent then you’re likely to leave an opening somewhere. An opening that may be very difficult to defend given your current position, an opening your opponent may be able to exploit given their distance and the timing of their attack from when you’ve opened yourself up.

      Remember; giving your fellow role-player an opening and chances to hit you is a reasonable thing to do. As well, remain detailed in your actions. That way it causes fewer arguments and allows combat to remain smooth and fair.

      You should also keep in mind that while you are given chances to act and re-act, in character your opponent will not wait for yours to make their move. It wouldn’t make sense for your opponent to just stand there while you weave fifty hand seals. Your opponent will either strike or cast a jutsu that requires fewer seals. Guaranteed if they weave five and you weave fifty, they will cast their jutsu before you. Therefore, you should limit the actions in your posts to logically match your situation in-character. If you do a lot in one post, your fellow role-player can easily justify doing just as much in that same manner of time if not more.

      …And they can, especially if they sneak things in from previous posts. Considering the world we’re settled in being sneaky and having tactics is mostly ideal and as such will be applied in combat. Of course, hiding things and pulling sneaky moves can be a tricky thing to do especially if your fellow role-player didn’t notice beforehand. They may try to claim you pulled it out of nowhere when in reality you wanted to surprise them or stop their character from noticing right away. To solve this issue, there should be some form of hint within your previous posts before you pull a sneaky manoeuvre (Such as a trap). The more obvious the hint the more leisure you’ll have in justifying your sneaky manoeuvres later on. Alternatively, it isn’t very logical to suddenly have your character be aware of sudden traps and sneaky manoeuvres from your opponent. There should be a logical justification as to why your character would notice something ahead of time.

      For example; random Nin #12 running away from a sensory Nin. That sensory Nin realising they’re being lead into a trap due to the chakra signatures ahead of them. They decide not to peruse any further. Instead of random Nin #13 randomly deciding not to peruse random Nin #12 because the instant ramen they regurgitated before the fight gave them a bad feeling in their gut about chasing Nin #12 any further. The first one is logical; the second one is an ass-pull.

      Combat guide: Specialism


      Now that we’ve gotten the basics of action and reaction down, let us move on to the topic of specialism. Specialism refers to a particular area of study. Within Shinobi terms, it is simply referred to an area one decides to train in mainly; that being Ninjutsu to Taijutsu from Speed to Strength. This is highly important within combat to determine how well characters fight within certain fields. If someone specialising within Ninjutsu gets into a Taijutsu battle with a person who specialises in Taijutsu, the person that specialises in Taijutsu is more likely to come out on top. Someone who mainly focuses on speed is most likely to outrun someone that focuses more on strength. If two characters weave hand seals roughly at the same time, and they have the same amount of hand seals, it’s likely that the fastest character will get done first if only but barely.

      Combat guide: Chakra consumption – Ninjutsu use


      This then brings me to the topic of chakra consumption. This topic is to help people understand how much their jutsu is costing them, as well informing them the usage of Ninjutsu in general. Two important factors of chakra consumption and Ninjutsu are Chakra Control and Chakra Reserve. Chakra Control arguably being more ideal as it allows your character to perform jutsu with just the right amount of chakra allowing it to be efficient without pouring too much chakra into it. Meanwhile, a reserve is how much Chakra your character holds and can use before they tire out. Your character may have a large reserve without the good control, but be wary that your character will be wasting more chakra than necessary that way.

      Chakra consumption can be classified in four forms: Low, moderate, high, and severe.

      • Low chakra consumption usually allows jutsu to be executed rather easily. As well, they’re usually non-punishable if used repeatedly. Simple as they might be, more times than not they’re just that; simple.
      • Moderate chakra consumption jutsu are more complex than the previous, but still rather simple to execute allowing them to be repeated as well. As the consumption of chakra is still rather light while jutsu still being effective, this is favorable among most.
      • High chakra consumption jutsu are more serious than the previous two. The chakra consumption is high due to the result of the jutsu being the same. Quite complex and taxing, they should be used sparingly.
      • Severe chakra consumption jutsu usually tend to not be used more than once per battle. Although they’re highly taxing, the rank of these jutsu depends on certain circumstance. A C rank technique may be one that uses chakra over time allowing it to fall under the category of severe chakra consumption as a single, quick; A ranked technique may use a severe amount of chakra as well.

      Another thing to keep in mind when using Ninjutsu, mostly for those who have large chakra reserves, is a thing called Chakra Burning. While you’re probably more able to perform higher ranked jutsu in a single battle than your average Shinobi, that doesn’t mean you should. Due to the stress of chakra being moulded and then expelled from the body in high volumes, rapidly, your character will begin to suffer from aches and other stressful symptoms. Your opponent can and will take advantage of that state, as they should. In combat, Shinobi should use everything to their advantage, even their disadvantage. This will most definitely happen if you spam your Ninjutsu without a tactic.

      Example; you spamming a gout of flames at your opponent attempting to end them in that go. Without a follow up or a plan-B to go with the flames the opponent will be able to freely fire off a strong gust of wind. Not only will they cause the flames to grow but also send the flames right back at you pulling off two attacks for the price of one. Now imagine throwing a kunai with an explosive tag on it to deviate their attention, and as they’re distracted you’ll be able to weave handseals with little to no problem. By time they’ve jumped away from the explosion they’ve fallen right where you want them allowing you to effectively turn them into Gran-Gran’s infamous BBQ.

      While Ninjutsu is great given the diversity within itself and within other forms of combat such as Taijutsu and Kenjutsu, it doesn’t make the form perfect and most certainly doesn’t leave it without cons. In order to bring Ninjutsu to its attainment, more times than not handseals are required. While Shinobi perform these quite quickly, if they are interrupted then that means they just wasted a bunch of time. Same goes for being locked in a Taijutsu battle, your character won’t be able to perform hand seals. Put with the fact that Ninjutsu favors mid-long range combat this would go very poorly for Ninjutsu-oriented characters. It goes to show that Ninjutsu shouldn’t be the only thing relied on as it isn’t perfect, even given its diverse nature. A basic strategy of Ninjutsu use would be keeping distance between your character and your opponent. There should be no form of spamming without tactics, not even a single pointless jutsu cast. Every ounce of chakra is precious; therefore every jutsu cast should serve a purpose from setting up for a new attack to seeing an opening where you can finish your opponent off.


    • Reasons to train


      There are a few reasons why somebody should invest time and effort in training their character. Next to that the most logical reason is that they want their characters to grow and become stronger, you need to ask yourself the question if that is the only reason for training your character. Isn't it also interesting to show that your character is unable to grasp a certain field or skill, making them still learn (thus develop and grow) from it? How?

      Very simple : knowing what their talent and forte's are. While everybody has a particular amount of talent, one shouldn't forget that having a skill in all the fields can be frowned upon and that training is also a way to show that you're willing to put effort into making your character grow. Next to that, another important reason is fun!

      What is more, fun to try to make your character try to learn something? Trying to follow in the footsteps of a mentor and sensei or try to be innovative? Thus to start training, try to think first of what reason you have for it. Don't just go always for the need to become stronger, but instead, also try now and then to train your character in other aspects than just skill. Knowledge is after all required to master and learn complicated techniques, but it can also serve in the fact that your character knows how to combat other fields, chakra natures and what not.

      How much effort should be put into a training to learn something?


      This is a question that quite a few people have asked and wondered about. Is it okay for a character to instantly grasp a complicated technique? Would it be okay to just spend one or three paragraphs into training and then requesting a B-ranked technique? The answer to that depends on several variables that vary from characters.

      • How much does the character know of the field? Does it know the basic of how the particular field or skill works?
      • How much talent does the character has in the field? Is she/he particularly skilled in the said field/skill to grasp the basics of the new technique or such fast?
      • Does the character get any help from anybody that has knowledge, experience or knows how to do the said technique or about the field that the skill/technique is deprived off?
      • Has the character any experience with the said field?
      As you can see there are thus several questions that can be asked when somebody wishes to know how long or how much effort they need to put into a training or several training posts to learn something. Let's use an example :

      The Nimatsu clan are specialised in several martial arts, such as kendo/kenjutsu. The art of wielding a sword and stab/slash your foe with it. This can make it 'easier' for a Nimatsu to learn about it, but what if the said Nimatsu isn't particular skilled in the field? Our example Nimatsu is however somebody who has studied it, watched others train and requested aid to become better in hacking and slashing his foes. From this, we can conclude that it won't be one training post that the example Nimatsu will be a master swordsman because he just did one training. It is normal to see him trying to become better in training his body, his knowledge and gaining experience in order to become a better swordsman.

      This doesn't mean that a talented person can get away with just one training post in order to become better. Even talented people need to learn and put effort into becoming better. People shouldn't also forget that even non-talented people can shine in a field with given practice and knowledge. Don't look surprised when somebody who has trained more also knows more, able to counter and kick the ass of your talented character that never put effort into learning more about a field.

      Example of a decent training post?


      Glad you asked. Let's grab some training post and state why they are good, okay?

      Training with a mentor/sensei about knowledge.

      "And how accurate are you with it?" Mika asked, observing the weapon as she crossed her arms over her chest. She had seen whips being used in combat and they could be annoying weapons if they were wielded in a right fashion for it."I think that it also requires a different fighting style than you're used with, judging by your taijutsu." Mika thought out loud. "Currently you focus on heavy blunt trauma with your taijutsu while this weapons seems to be more fitting for fast and lighter attacks."

      Crouching so she could attach a piece that looked like it was going to detach, she nodded and stood again when she was done. "Yes I know it doesn't really suit me the best right now. Though I am still trying to work with it and develop my own techniques." pausing, she crossed her arms as she thought. "It could help get an enemy close to me and then I could bash their heads in..." Turning to Mika she continued. "Also the metal parts detach and can do some damage if I had my chakra infused with it. And heck, even if I dont know how to use it properly yet, It looks scary as hell. Totally will make an enemy think that I specilize in something I dont and perhaps fight differently."

      Listening the half rambling and ranting of her student, Mika was thinking on what she could figure out by the looks of the weapon. "Let's focus on your accuracy with it first before we try to bash any head with it." Considering the length Mika decided to advise the following. "Weapons that are this long aren't advised to use against those who can creep close. Those with a tanto or such length sized weapons can move their weapons faster if they manage to get close and force you to drop your weapon." Pausing, Mika lowered her arms. "On the other hand, it could be used as a polearm against such weapons. If it is fast enough, then you would probably be an annoyance for any side-arm user." Remembering her own problem against those who wielded a polearm, Mika could very well remember her having a hard time to get past some of those who knew what they were doing.

      Frowning at the suggestion to actually try and train with it, Haruhi uncrossed her arms and sighed. "If this had been left for me by anyone other than my father, I would likely sell it to some puppet master or something. This is the kind of weapon I imagine them using." she said, eyeing the whip again. Pausing, she looked back up at Mika.

      "What the heck is a polearm?"

      Staring at Haruhi, Mika stayed quiet for a long moment. "A polearm is a spear weapon." Mika said finally. "Weapons with a long reach, such as a naginata are a polearm." She explained, still a bit surprised that Haruhi didn't know what a polearm was. Deciding to move on, Mika gestured to the field to their right. "Why don't you show me how you would operate it? Just show me what you already can do with it." For her own safety, Mika would take some distance from Haruhi.


      In this part, you read that the student is getting a theory about weapons. This is because it isn't just something that people can know without study or guidance in it. If somebody doesn't know that you could potentially stick the point of a weapon in the loop, that some weapons have, in order to disarm the other then it is hard to become better in the said field. Knowledge is thus something vital to becoming better.

      Example of training with practice:

      "That is good, but we will need to work on your swings and close ranged combat skills with them." Mika explained. "In big battles where you're needed to be in formation, you can't use much ninjutsu or weapons that require much range. Relying on short weapons will allow you greater mobility as agility, which can be a considerable advantage when your enemy is using a less mobile weapon." Hoping that Haruhi understood the words, Mika reached for her kunai holster. Pulling out a kunai, she held the weapon up. "You're lucky though. Unlike me, you could channel your affinity through the blade and make it sharper and deadlier. But lets focus us now on your stance." Throwing the weapon up towards Haruhi, Mika already gave her an instruction. "Show me your stance first."

      Catching the kunai midair, Haruhi nodded to Mika and then tightened her grip on the weapon. She widened her feet a little and brought her left hand clutching the kunai forward, while her right hand remained in a fist, raised only a little near her side. Her knees bent slightly and she paused. Blinking once, she would shift her feet a little, raising her heels up off the ground slightly and shifting her weight to her toes. "How is this?" she asked, flipping her head and blowing a bit of hair out of her face.

      "It is a good start. You seem to understand the fact that you need to be quick on your feet." Mika smiled a bit as she inspected the stance. "Its perhaps dull and annoying, but show me how you swing horizontal." She requested, knowing that it was probably dull and a pain to repeat the basics, but she had her reasons to request it. Pouting after being given such a boring task, Haruhi flipped the kunai in her hand so the blade stuck out the outer part rather than inwards. She made two quick swings left and right and repeated the motion a few times, her left leg coming forward as she made the motion.

      "Good. Now vertical." Mika placed her hands on her back as she would keep watching her student performing the slashes. Nodding again Haruhi would again flip the kunai so the blade faced inward and she made the motion to slash like she normally would. Her arm would rotate a little so her palm nearly face towards the sky, and she lowered it before bringing it up in a fast motion. Again she would repeat it a few times before stopping. "Hmm... is there a point to this?" she asked, looking at the kunai for a moment before returning her gaze to Mika.

      "Yes." Mika simply answered, becoming silent as she seemed to ponder on something. "Why do you flip your kunai inwards when you make a vertical slash and outwards when performing a horizontal slash?" Mika asked, clearly ignoring the previous question.

      "Well... Because when I think of a horizontal slash, I think of a punch. If I were to be trying to punch someone and I missed by a little bit, my kunai would make contact if it was faced outwards rather than inwards." she said. Pausing as she thought about the vertical slash. "With the vertical slash, I imagine i am facing someone taller than me, and the way I rotate my arm makes the kunai stand straight up when flipped inwards. I could drive it into my opponent with it facing upwards rather than downwards." she finished.

      Nodding slowly, Mika seemed to be agreeing with that logic. "And how would you then react if somebody is using your swings against you?" She asked. Deciding to explain her question a bit, Mika made a gesture with her right hand. "You're creating a small window of time where you flip the kunai into the grip that you're using for a swing. Though it isn't that drastically long, there are some fast people who will force you to keep up a defensive stance as you won't get the chance to flip the kunai." Pulling out another kunai, Mika spun the weapon through the loop. "It is thus important that you get comfortable with the basics of using the ice-pick grip and normal grip." Grabbing the handle with the blade outwards, Mika raised her hand a bit. "Outwards is the ice-pick grip. Can be useful for quick movements that are harder to predict, but offer less defensive manuvres."

      Letting the words sink in, Mika performed a few slashes in both vertical as horizontal. With a pace that it wouldn't go too fast. "Try to move fluid when you use the ice-pick grip. Instead of trying to reach out for them, use the close distance to drive the blade into the enemy with a stab." Lowering her arm, she nodded towards Haruhi.

      Haruhi had her hands on her hips as she listened and watched Mika demonstrate a different grip. It didn't look to awkward, and so when Mika nodded to her, she tried it out. She copied the way Mika had held it, with the blade outwards, and did a few practice swings, alternating between horizontal and vertical. She noticed it was quicker indeed by just a second or so rather than switching the orentation of the kunai. Nodding in satisfaction at this, she smiled at Mika. "I like it. Seems more comfortable to continue swinging when I dont have to flip the kunai. Also it helps make my motions more fluid like you said." Lowering the blade, she would wait for the next one to be explained to her.

      "Good. Do remember that you need to practice this as it might come over fluid, it is harder to train than one thinks." Flipping her kunai, to hold the blade in a 'normal' grip, Mika continued. "The inwards are useful to stab as well trying to parry better. You can put more weight on the blade than holding it outwards. The problem with somebody slicing through the blade also doesn't mean that their weapon will strike your arm as when you hold it in a more defensive manner in the ice-pick grip." Pausing, Mika glanced at the kunai for a moment. "The best way to use this is also to use for backstabbing and holding a firmer grip when you place the blade against a throat. Unlike the popular use of the ice-pick grip." Performing basic slashes that were even easier to perform than the previous, Mika nodded as it was Haruhi's turn.


      This is a part where the participant is getting training on how to use a weapon and the basic, making not only the character more aware of how important the basics are but also the writer. Some writers take the basics for granted, not knowing however what they truly are. This isn't a bad thing, but it is a reason why training with a sensei/somebody that is experienced in a field can be of great use. Does this, however, mean you always need to train with somebody that is experienced or knowledgeable about something you wish your character to indulge in? No. Not at all!

      You could easily train by yourself. Show that motivation and effort! It is great to see a character trying to train and study on their own. And it doesn't always need to be lengthy. A good example of a solo training can be found in the spoiler below.

      The slanting rays of the setting sun cast long shadows across the training field. Breathing heavily, Hideki fell to the ground, expelling chakra from his tenketsu. Sweat droplets rolled down his chin. The technique was more difficult than he'd first predicted, especially mastering it without the supervision of a teacher. Pinning down the spinning part in itself was easy, but maintaining a barrier of chakra whilst doing so felt nearly impossible. Closing his eyes, Hideki wondered what to do next. Since his return, he'd grown visibly distant to his parents and his clan. If they knew what he was doing, they would not respond kindly. As if he cared. Rising to his feet, he initiated the spinning motion, simultaneously expelling chakra from the tenketsu nodes. A vortex was created around him, chakra coursing chaotically. It then, with a tiny misstep, disintegrated, the friction causing Hideki to crash onto the ground with a deep thud. "Fuck. Fuck. Fuck." He cursed, staring off into a point in space, unable to keep his thoughts from flowing. If Kiyomi saw him now, she'd laugh relentlessly. Damn royalty. For the eleventh time of the day, he returned to his feet. "C'mon. One more time. He started spinning again.

      Back at the Hyuuga compound, Noru was shredding Hideki's pillows mercilessly, a spark of evil in his eyes.


      And while the examples are written and accepted, do know that both characters that were trained or did a training by themselves didn't right away ask to update their CS with hoping that it would improve their skill or gain a new technique!

      Conclusion?


      Training can be fun. Everybody has their own preference and way how they like to train. Just keep in mind that training can be more than just making your character stronger. It can show their flaws, their personality and else helping others. Perhaps something you can write about when you're bored next time or having a nice idea on how to train your character. In short : One can never have enough training, but should have enough patience.

      Do you have some training suggestions?


      A few examples of canon can be :

      Cliff Climbing Practice
      Tree Climbing Practice
      Water Surface Walking Practice
      Leaf Concentration

      Chakra control training - advanced.
      Advanced nature chakra control training :

      A training that has been used by many Shinobi and has been introduced by Gerontis. One needs to sit in a meditation sit and then form and hold (for the whole duration of the training) the handseal that is the affinity of the chakra nature they want to train. It looks very simple, but it requires great focus, concentration and patience. The character starts moulding their chakra in a way that it seems they want to use it, but just to the state it keeps moulding in their body. It seems that they are actively moving the chakra, but don't use it. This can be very effective for effectively learning how to improve one's chakra control. There are however some risks to it.

      People that have low concentration spans will notice that if they mess somehow up that their chakra moulding will cause a burning sensation. It feels like the chakra and their blood has turned into fire, burning away tissue as the chakra is kind of running rampant. This can have some nasty results if one keeps screwing up and it's thus advised to have an experienced person to overview the first attempts of this training as they can insert their own chakra to try to calm down the chakra system of the practiser.

      It's also been revealed that this is a way to learn a new chakra element (ask permission of the GM's first!) to use the handseal that is affiliated to an element. This is however not easily done as even for experienced users of this way of training need to adjust their body to the strange/new manner of the new chakra moulding.

      The handseals for each basic nature :
      * Keep in mind that advanced chakra natures often use one of the chakra elements affiliated handsignals.

      Fire Nature :
      Ram and Tiger

      Lightning Nature :
      Dog and Monkey

      Wind Nature :
      Bird and Hare

      Earth Nature :
      Serpent and Boar

      Water Nature :
      Horse and Rat


      Of course, there are many ways of trying to train in ways your can figure out yourself. Hope this was of any help and good luck training!





    History


    • Current year : 476 ADS (ADS = After the Death of the Sage)


      It has been twelve years since the First Shinobi World War has stopped. Four years of fighting. Four long years that seemed nothing more than endless bloodshed. Four years of sorrow, hate and misery. Though that many claim that the World War has begun because that the Hidden Villages wanted more power, some disagree. Some say that there is a more sinister and darker cause that made the fighting erupt between the five great nations. Though nobody can explain how or way, it still happened.

      In the war, nobody gained something. There was only loss. Even those who seemed to made a name for themselves, have known almost nothing more than the feeling of loss of a loved one or friends. For this generations knows that war doesn't give away.

      War only takes.

      But the war ended and the world knew peace. A whole decade, there was a kind of peace. No longer were men and women marching to war. No longer a bloodshed every day. The horns of war were quiet for a decade. But at each time, neither good or bad, there is an end. And often it means a change. For the better or worst. And as time passed, it turned more for the worst. In the few years that passed, some things have happened. Kumogakure and Konohagakure had faced together against Sunagakure, right after the Eight-Tails attacked Kumogakure and the Nine-Tails attacked Konohagakure. Shortly after that, the four Konoha Elders were brought to halt as they were trying to realise their plans.

      Now it has been one and a half year since the rising and oppression of a man, Shoji, who had tried to erase the shinobi world with his own militia forces. The villages are trying to recover from the short and fierce struggle, as it turns out that the political position in the world may shift. With a new dawn coming, the question that is being asked is :

      Where are you in the midst of all this?

      General Timeline (open)

      The timeline is a frequently updated history of relatively important events that occur in our roleplay. This is a tool that can be used by players to determine how long ago certain events took place, and how old characters are. While this might seem initially rather over the top, as the roleplay ages this will be and already has been a golden tool.

      *Some events aren't as detailed as others. This is mainly because the details are to give a good impression about the rise of a leader or the respective event. I advice reading the detailed histories to get a much better idea of a country's history.*

      Deaths:
      Death of the Sage
      [ Important note : some clans and people didn't believe and still don't believe that the Sage was real. Yet the starting date begins after the death of the Sage and is being used by everybody so far. ]

      184-390 :
      The Warring Clans Period.


      [​IMG]

      [ During this time period the countries and nations weren't formed yet. Clans were autonomous and often had their own state and defining culture. It is a period that is called by many to be a truly bloody time by the high number of conflicts. Others might refer to it as a time when their clan had truly been great as no higher authority reigned over them. ]

      391 :
      The End of the Waring Clans and Rise of the Countries.


      [​IMG]

      [ Slowly at the end of the Warring clans period, countries started to take shape. This often revolved around using diplomacy to unite clans and clan-less in one region in order to make them understand that being together in one country would be more profitable for all. Even while the daimyo's started to gain power, their authority over many powerful clans wasn't absolute. While the bloodshed between clans and rival factions started to cease, it didn't mean that all clans would hand over their power. ]

      405:
      Beginning with Amegakure's foundation.


      414:
      Creation of Konohagakure and the First Hokage, Gakuro Senju.
      [ An alliance between the Senju and Uchiha clan saw the rise of the first 'Hidden Village.' Gakuro Senju was elected to become the First Hokage, leading the military of the Fire country by the appointment of the Fire Daimyo. Uniting several clans to the fold of Konohagakure, creating a strong military key point, the Fire country's military and prestige increased. This soon brought about a domino effect as other neighbouring countries adapted and slightly modified the system to match their own needs. His rule was a peaceful one as he did gain the reputation of educating several important people of Konohagakure. ]

      420:
      Creation of Kumogakure by Tsueno.

      [​IMG]

      [ According to the tales, Tsueno, the First Raikage, founded Kumogakure after uniting many of the clans into building and forming the foundation of Kumogakure. This happened after the First Raikage led the united clans into subduing the Hachibi as proof of their worth and strength. ]

      430:
      Creation of Amegakure


      442:
      The rise of the Second Raikage.

      [ With the First Raikage advancing in age and becoming ill, a successor was needed. The Rise of the Second Raikage saw a slow decline in the might and prosperity of the Lightning country's military. While the Second Raikage, Koji, was a skilled fighter he relied more on the council's advice than effectively managing and leading the military himself. ]


      445:
      The rise of the Second Mizukage, Shouji Suzu

      [ As the first Mizukage retired, Shouji was chosen. Being the head of the Suzu clan, he was "'regarded" as the most powerful shinobi in all of Kirigakure. Many at that time boasted that Shouji was the strongest of the world - then again, all clans and nations had such a claim at the ready. His greatest feats were focused on increasing the security of the Water country. A superior network aided the Water country's military quite well, and the results were shown with the early success of the country at the start of the Great War. Eventually, Shouji lost his life at the siege of Kirigakure at the end of the Great War. Heralding the period of corruption and the Water country's military stagnation. ]


      451:
      The rise of the Second Hokage.

      [ Daisuke Uchiha was chosen in the year 445 to be the successor Hokage of Gakuro Senju. Daisuke was perhaps not as military invested as Gakuro, which his tenure showed. Infrastructure and relations were improved. Resulting that Konohagakure started to grow in both population and military might as Daisuke managed to enlist more aid from clans that Gakuro didn't contact or hadn't managed to get support from for the foundation of Konohagakure. While his tenure wasn't long, it was considered a great one by the people of the Fire country. ]


      452:
      The rise of the Third Raikage.

      [ Only a handful of scrolls remain intact and are in the possession of the Raikage on how Genmyou, the Third Raikage, managed to secure the position. His rule saw a steady decline in the military power of the Lightning country. While one can argue this as the Lightning country managed to prevail in the Great War during Genmyou's tenure it is a given fact that many people just vanished and a lot of military officers stepped down. Some were even randomly reported to be traitors. The Antare clan's infamy stems forth from the tenure of Genmyou's reign as Raikage, known as a clan for violence and stark loyalty to Genmyou. ]


      460:
      Beginning of the Great Shinobi War. Exact date varies with each participating faction.


      [​IMG]

      Fire country and her vassals : 2nd of February
      Wind country and her vassals : 31st of January
      Lighting country and her vassals : 1st of February
      Water country and her vassals : 5th of February
      Earth Country country and her vassals : 6th of February
      [ The reason for the Great War is shrouded in rumours and vague reasons. Most reasonable arguments for the rest of the Great War are said to be a chain of events that led to the terrible four years. Border frictions, trade disputes, and envy started to escalate the distrust and hostility between the nations. Resulting that it erupted in 460 with the Lightning country declaring war on the Water country. Soon this started to make way to the other nations as the 'Five Great' nations were left battling for four years in a terrible conflict. ]


      461:
      The Year of the Kage's Death

      [ While the first months of the Great War weren't that dreadful, the conflict started to rise and escalate to a measure nobody had anticipated. Or most likely preferred it to grow out of control. With the use of shinobi as spies and assassins, it saw the death of every kage except that of Kumogakure.]

      - Konohagakure :
      [ The death of Daisuke Uchiha. Before his death, he had proclaimed that he wished Zakito Hon to succeed him as the Third Hokage. The First Kazekage was also later assassinated. A few months later, his successor, the Second Kazekage, was slain in battle by Zakito Hon as well. This sparked a great amount of hostility between the Wind country and the Fire country for the years to come. The First Mizukage died at the hands of general Jinkama Moto in battle. ]

      - Kirigakure :
      [ The death of the First Mizukage, Otokano Kitsune, at the hands of Jinkama Moto. The forces of the Water country had quite some success against the forces of the Fire country and the death of the First Mizukage didn't stop their advance any longer than a few weeks. ]

      - Kumogakure :
      [ While losing no kage or significant leaders as the other countries did, this most likely for Genmyou staying in Kumogakure for the full duration of the war, the First Tsuchikage died in a fight against forces of the Lightning country. Who exactly had killed the Tsuchikage in battle is unsure as many claim that they have done so. ]


      464:
      End of the Great War

      [ The End of the Great war started with the Wind country resigning. The Earth country soon afterwards followed by the alliance between the Fire and Lightning country. With these changes, the Fire country started to assign more troops to fend off the invasive forces of the Water country. With the aggressive strategies of Jinkama Moto, the Fire country managed to push out the invaders. Then Jinkama led an invasion force himself to land on the shores near Kirigakure and lay siege to the city. In a desperate effort, the defenders sallied out. Resulting in the death of the Second Mizukage. ]

      - Konohagakure :
      Rise of the Third Hokage
      [ Zakito Hon officially becomes the Third Hokage. His tenure saw that the peace between the Fire country and its surrounding neighbours was kept due to holding them to the truce as well as reinforcing the country's infrastructure and military might. His 'resigning' is speculated from the fact that even in his role as Hokage that he couldn't manage to keep the peace. ]

      - Kirigakure :
      Rise of the Third Mizukage
      [ Shouji Suzu, the Second Mizukage, had not appointed a successor. After the disastrous defeat, the council in Kirigakure appointed Kang Nomonoto as the Third Mizukage. Kang's tenure saw the rise of civil unrest as he instituted laws and policies that prevented him from being removed from the Mizukage seat. As well, he made strict labour laws to keep the people working and oppressed. With the Seven Swordsmen of the Mist as his personal dogs, more or less, he ruled with an iron fist. Granted, his policies extorted enough money from the people of Kirigakure to pay for the war damages rather quickly. His oppressive behaviour wasn't met with acceptance, however. Constant acts against him were committed, mainly through propaganda to instigate a bigger uprising. However, no movement gained enough momentum to overthrow Kang. He eventually was deposed and assassinated. ]

      - Amegakure :
      The Rise of the Second Amekage.
      [ Shinchi became elected as the Second Amekage. Upon officially assuming office, his first act was to disband The Council and usurp all the power in the village. Some villagers were wary of this event, but nothing could prepare them for the events of the two years that took place next. The village entered a sharp decline in both prosperity and morality, as questionable people rose to positions of power - the most notorious was the Jounin Commander Soru Deshuga. Harsh times fell upon the village where the leadership did little to care about the events in the village. The industry declined and the population was not very satisfied with the conditions they lived in. ]

      465:
      Kirigakure :
      The assassination of the Third Mizukage and rise of the Fourth Mizukage.
      [ Kang Nomonoto was eventually assassinated in the year 465. To avoid another scenario of oppression, as with Kang, the Elder Council elected his long-time rival Fumiyo Nagano to lead Kirigakure. Though the two had worked together before, they had a long history of animosity between the two. This led the Elders to believe that Fumiyo would be able to fix the problems left by Kang. However, this proved not to be the case. Rather, Fumiyo picked up where Kang left off. After dropping some of the more extreme policies, such as instant executions, he instead implemented his own for his own personal gain. Not only was Fumiyo impossible to remove from power, but he was turning a profit. His tenure also saw the Suzu Massacre take place. Resentment toward him only grew progressively worse. At this point, Fumiyo began using the ANBU to assassinate civilian targets suspected of inciting revolution. This went on for several years, with several uprisings coming and going along the way. However, in the year 474, Fumiyo's reign was brought to its end. ]

      471:
      Political changes:
      Alliance between the Fire and Lightning country.


      472:
      - Konohagakure :

      Attack of the Kyuubi on Konohagakure. Resulted in heavy damage on the city as well the Kyuubi being captured and sealed into a host.

      - Kumogakure:
      Attack of the Hachibi on Kumogakure. Resulted in heavy damage on the city as well the Hachibi being recaptured and sealed into a host.


      473:
      The Conflict between the Wind versus the Lightning-Fire alliance.

      [ After the attack of the two bijuu, the Wind country tried to take advantage of the situation after the information was spread through rumours. Launching a large-scale surprise attack, the Wind country's forces had some early successes. The conflict didn't last long as a joint army between the Fire and Lightning forced the Wind country's forces out of the River country - at the time a vassal of the Fire country. With the death of the Third Kazekage at the hand of Zakito Hon, a peace was soon afterwards signed between the parties. ]

      Global
      - Palace of Peace Incident
      Konohagakure, Kumogakure.
      [ An alliance meeting was to be held between the Third Hokage and Raikage. It was a formal meeting to lengthen the alliance treaty between the two in the old former Fire daimyo's residence : Palace of Peace. There, following a plot, the assistant Naomi Hanamoto caused the deaths of the Third Raikage and the accompanying jounin, Nobushige. Zakito Hon was left gravely wounded. Naomi then continued to impersonate Genmyou and led from that day on the Lightning country's military. ]


      474:
      Konohagakure :
      - Rise of the Konoha Elders
      [ With the Third Hokage missing and the incident at the Palace of Peace, the four Elders in Konohagakure assumed control. They blamed the Third Hokage for the incident and started a short, but terrible rule. They plotted to give reasons for a Second Great War, which they wanted to use to see the Fire country dominating the other countries through military occupation. ]

      - The conflict between the Nimatsu and Hon clan
      [ Katsuro Hon initiated a conflict between the Hon and Nimatsu clan. Though internal conflict between clans was strictly forbidden, the Elders sanctioned the conflict as Katsuro Hon had made the deal to not allow Zakito return to the Hon clan and using the clan to regain his Hokage title back. The conflict saw the sacking of the Talon Village of the Nimatsu clan, where many Nimatsu were put down to the sword. While the Hon clan suffered some losses as well, they came out as victors. ]

      - The Rise of the Fourth Raikage
      [ After unmasking the fake Third Raikage, Naomi Hanamoto, the jounin Jinyaru Sanosuke saw the end of the corruption in the Lightning country's military. Becoming the Fourth Raikage, Jinyaru's tenure saw an economic and military improvement. This was however for a brief amount of time as the Fourth Raikage then stopped working for improvement. Jinyaru's end came with being poisoned by a Metsuke of Shoji, slipping away in a comatose state. ]

      The murder of the Fourth Mizukage and rise of the Fifth and last Mizukage.
      [ Rika Suzu, a surviving Suzu, came back after many years to Kirigakure. Ending the rule of the Fourth Mizukage, Rika took the leadership for her own. Ironically supported by the Seven Swordsmen. Even though they supported Rika's rise as Mizukage, she still ended up disbanding them, resulting in the loss of Samehada. The tenure of Rika saw a decrease of civil unrest and some economic prosperity. Her rule, however, gained resentment when she proclaimed to not be the same as her predecessors but continued most of their ways. Eventually turning paranoid, she and most of her loyal supporters met their end during the Revolution. ]

      [ The Konoha Elders attempted to use the chuunin exam in the Rice Capital for their own gain. A big conflict broke out as the hired mercenary force of the Elders and their forces clashed with the present forces at the Exam. It was in order to take out the leading Kages and use it to spark a Second Great War. The arrival of Hisoka Uchiha, who had united a military force at Keishi, arrived during the conflict and managed to prevent the rise of a Second Great War. It was the end of the Elders' reign and saw the rise of the Fourth Hokage. ]

      - The Fire Union and the Fourth Hokage.
      [ Shortly after Hisoka Uchiha was named the Fourth Hokage, a new faction was formed. The Fire Union rapidly expanded through diplomacy as surrounding small countries were coerced to join the new powerhouse on the western continent. Hisoka Uchiha, the Fourth Hokage, saw however the end of the Hokage as his tenure ended officially with the Imperial reformation of the Fire Union into the Akinian Empire. He did continue as the governor of the Fire province after the Imperial reform. ]

      [ An elaborate plot came to existence. At first, the daimyo of the Five great nations was demanded to stop funding and supporting their shinobi corps. Shoji, the leader of the Occupation, threatened with his own military and some strange new superweapon - a big airship, unmatched in design and size. Even the airships that Kumogakure has at its disposal weren't a match for it alone. The Occupation ended after a half year, with the joined forces of the Fire, Lightning, and Rain fighting against the remaining forces of Shoji as well as managing to bring down his massive airship. ]

The Fifth Raikage saw the increase of the Lightning country's military organisation and power. Economic prosperity did eventually rise. However, this was thrown back as a foolish ANBU killed an agent of the Fire Union. In order to prevent war, the Lightning country was forced to reduce the price of products they exported to the Fire Union by 10% - which sounds small, but is anything but pleasant. ]

Soon afterwards he made the Rain country join the Fire Union as a client state. This enabled the country to enjoy more security in both a military as economical manner. With the Imperial reform for the Akino empire, Ryoku swore an oath of fealty as the Rain country became a province of the respective Empire. ]

      Notes :
      *GSW = Great Shinobi War/First Shinobi World War






      Shoji Occupation

      In the year 474 - 2nd of November - the Prohibition dawned on the known world. A large military faction was granted and supported by the daimyo's to dismantle the Shinobi corps and every shinobi oriented faction and group. The man behind this whole ordeal was Shoji and his Prefects. The occupation can be seen as the result of the unrest, disdain, and fear of the corps and units of Shinobi in the military. After the Great War and the destruction it left in its wake, the majority of the population grew uncomfortable with the shinobi military to the point that a man from the Earth Country started to formulate a plan. In the year 468, Shoji had managed to build up a lot of wealth with investing in mining facilities and expanding his business. With his steady income, he started to invest in a personal force and begin his first phase.
      Approaching the Earth Daimyo, Shoji was hoping for his approval and cooperation. His idea was to replace the shinobi corps with a more disciplined military that would make the shinobi corps obsolete. His troops were trained to use muskets - inaccurate short ranged weapons, but with a deadly penetrative force. The first demonstration, however, went all wrong due to a few muskets jamming. Resulting that the Earth Daimyo didn't go with Shoji's plan. Over the two years, Shoji attempted to convince the other daimyo's in order to see his plans get some progression. All of his attempts, however, ended up being miserable failures.

      Bitter and frustrated Shoji stopped approaching the daimyos. Instead, he focused on gathering ex-shinobi - shinobi who were either traumatised or disgruntled with the end of the Great War - and people who were more than willing to serve in this new revolutionary force. Several times the Earth Daimyo did warn Shoji and demanded the man to stand his own personal force down. Most of these demands were met with the exchange of large sums of money and iron, coal and steel supplies. Ironically this improved the economy of the Earth country, which allowed it to quickly recover from the defeat it suffered at the end of the Great War. Shoji's forces, however, started to expand quickly. At the year of 474, his plot would be revealed to all of the daimyos of the five great countries.

      Showing a demonstration of his secret weapon - a massive airship, unmatched by any of the much smaller airships of the Lightning country's military - showed how the airship could level a large terrain to nothing. With his numbers and personal wealth, Shoji managed to thus 'convince' the scared daimyos into supporting him in his plan. The next weeks saw the daimyo's demanding their Kages to stand their shinobi corps and units down. From here on, it went quite differently depending on which area you look at.



      - In the North,
      Earth and Lightning country

      The Third Tsuchikage ignored the demand to stand the shinobi corps down. With several clans that were upset with the new demands and desire to reform society to something new, a revolt was born. Fierce fights broke out over the whole country between the occupation loyalists and those who opposed the new changes. Most battles went undecided as many metsuke - ex-shinobi - managed to lead the occupation forces to beat the shinobi rebels and their allies. At the height of the revolt in the Earth country, the rebels managed to retake Iwagakure. This success combined with the siege of the Hon estate/Magnhild saw to the decision of Shoji using his airship to attack Iwagakure, causing massive damage to the city.

      In the Lightning country, the rebels went at it a different way. The Fourth Raikage followed the command of the Daimyo, but his niece and Raikage Assistant - Asami Sanosuke - decided to do the opposite. Many shinobi that was ordered to give up their weapons and told to stand down fled into the countryside. Ending up with assaulting supply lines and camps of the forces of the occupation with the aid of the locals that were growing worried with the increased cruelty. The Prefect that was supervising the Lightning country started to deal out harsh punishments more and more frequently, which led to further unrest. The aim was to discourage support for the rebels and force the rebels to stand down. The actual result was a mixture between the two as the rebels did manage to hold on to their numbers and slightly grew, yet didn't pursue as aggressively as they had done in the first few months. Eventually, the Lightning Country's Prefect started to become frustrated as the Fourth Raikage ignored an order to stand down.
      This was because the jinchuriki of the Eight-Tails, Midori Sato, happened to rampage in a chakra cloak state after a small ordeal with some soldiers. The Fourth Raikage managed to calm down Midori Sato, only to ignore the order to stand down as the soldiers wanted to arrest Midori. As Midori and the Fourth Raikage escaped, harming soldiers in their way, the Prefect ordered 100 men of the Sanosuke clan to be rounded up. After this was done the order was given to execute them all, resulting in a huge increase of unrest in Kumogakure itself. Asami Sanosuke used this chance to regain control of Kumogakure. The Chakra masts that were stationed in the city were taken out by unleashing a big wave of bijuu chakra as Asami managed to 'convince' Midori Sato in cooperating. Afterwards, the rebels surprised the local occupation forces and took back Kumogakure. Though enthusiastic with their victory, Asami marshalled a force to march to the Fire country in order to relieve the siege at the Hon Estate/Magnhild.




      In the East,
      Water Country

      The Shoji Occupation of the Water country went without much trouble. The shinobi corps and units within the Water country stood down after the commands were given. Rika Suzu, the Fifth Mizukage at the time, cooperated somewhat with the occupation forces to establish order within the country. During the whole duration of the occupation, the Prefect in the country and the Mizukage cooperated, suppressing several small revolts. When the majority of the known world managed to overthrow the occupation, the Prefect decided to stand down with his forces.



      In the West
      Wind country, Rain country and the Fire Union.

      The Wind country faced the Shoji Occupation with much resistance - similar in a way as the Earth country. The Wind country's rebels focused on guerrilla warfare in the desert region of the country. Though they were booking some successes, they were at a stalemate with the forces of the occupation. They didn't suffer much cruelty as most of the occupation's forces were orientated to protect their encampments and supply routes from the rebels that attempted to raid them. No large battles were fought in the Wind country between the two sides.

      The Rain country (today is known as a province, due to being part of the Akinian Empire) rebels went a different route as well. Though the command had been given to stand down, a large number of shinobi and supporters decided to revolt against the occupation. Unlike many other revolts, the rebels decided to make Amegakure into a battlefield. Skirmishes happened daily between two sides. The occupation forces kept order and stability in a large part of Amegakure as well driving the Azure Tide - the rebel faction underneath the leadership of Soru Deshuga, that time present jounin commander - into a stagnation. As Ryuko Samidare managed to lead his own group of rebels against the occupation, the rebels of the Rain country managed to succeed. Though it did lead to the death of the Second Amekage, this loss was quickly recovered from as Ryoku was proclaimed by the people of Amegakure as the Third Amekage. Soru Deshuga was however imprisoned as he had conducted several crimes. One of the most notorious ones was to poison a large group of civilians to blackmail the occupation and their chakra (blockading) masts. Ryoku decided to then marshal a small army to contribute to the rebels in the Fire Union as he and others had heard about the Hon Siege. With the hope of managing to defeat the major force of Shoji there, Ryoku started the march towards the Hon Estate/Magnhild.

      In the Fire Union, the revolt against the occupation took a different approach. Though the higher ups of the Fire Union commanded their shinobi corps and units to stand down and cooperate with the occupation, they were plotting from the start on how to overthrow them. The higher ups remained outwardly showing a neutral approach to everything, giving a false sense of security to the forces of Shoji and the prefect that was designated to oversee the Fire Union. In secret rebels were stationed and gathering supplies and weapons. Under the leadership of Hiron Hon - who was given approval of the higher ups - the rebels of the Fire Union launched several operations. Booking early successes, the next phase was the Hon clan entering open rebellion against the occupation. The rebels managed to draw a force to siege the centre of the Hon clan and culture, Magnhild - known as well as the Hon Estate. The old and stoutly fortified city became the centre of violence as the occupation's forces laid siege to the city. Rebels from the Fire Union as the Hons started to defend the city, luring more and more of Shoji's troops to be sent to aid in the siege.

      This allowed the Fire Union's rebels at other positions across the land to operate against a much smaller sized opposition. Though the Fire Union's rebels managed to gain success after success, the Prefect decided to arrest the higher ups. With the higher ups being locked away as Hiron's family being taken into custody the rebels decided to aim to liberate Konohagakure. Managing to achieve victory after a fierce battle, the liberation of Konohagakure saw to it that the higher-ups took up command again. A force was gathered to march towards the siege of the Hon Estate/Magnhild.




      The battle of Magnhild.

      [​IMG]

      The largest occupation force was located near the Hon Estate/Magnhild. The fortified city with its stout walls stood as a beacon of hope and liberty from the Shoji occupation. Its defenders managed to keep the occupation forces at bay, led for a long time by Kiyomi Homura and Hiroshi Hon. A combination of Hon shinobi, soldiers, and warriors as rebels from over the whole Fire Union made a collaborative stand together. Every day went with bloodshed as the defenders manage to sell every inch of land for an expensive price.

      Eventually, the outer wall of the city was breached, yet the defenders kept holding their ground. Evacuating the civilians to the inner walls of the city, the defenders kept holding on to keep out their foes. Under the leadership of Kiyomi, who started to lead tactics of ambushing invading soldiers in the streets, and Hiroshi who led the forces at the inner walls, the enemies were held up for a sufficient amount of time. With the arrival of the forces of the Lightning and Rain country - Asami and Ryoku's armies - as well the force of the Fire Union - led by Hisoka Uchiha, Jinkama Moto, Zakito, and Hiron Hon - changed the situation drastically. The sieging army was forced to take up defensive positions against these threats though they received reinforcements as well. Near the centre of Hon culture, the battle was waged where the airship of Shoji arrived during the battle. Managing to take the airship down through collaborative tactics between the forces present made it possible for the remaining enemy forces to be ordered to stand down.




      Conclusion :

      The Shoji Occupation resulted in the old system being kept and followed throughout the known world. The weaponry of Shoji's forces had gained so much disdain that they were collected and destroyed - they had, after all, not proven to be that much more efficient than the arms and armour that are used in the present. Next to that it made it quite clear to the clans as non-clan shinobi that they weren't the best of the best. Numerous defeats at the hands of non-shinobi forces made it clear that they had their advantages, but not overall superiority. This led many countries to develop civilian and military factions and corps that incorporated more non-shinobi to prevent another similar uprising. Some even debate that the result of the Shoji occupation saw the rise of the Fire Union's expansion as smaller countries afterwards joined the Union - including the Rain country - as well countries improving the discipline of their military.







    • Story of the Sage (open)
      *Unknown dates, pre-counting*

      *This recorded history assumed to begin 100 years before counting*


      At the beginning there was a vast land in which humans lived. They lived in a manner which was expected, at peaceful times and also had wars among them. But at the end, they existed, but they were never alone.

      The Ten Tails has also lived there, Lonely and sad. He was being feared due to his indescribable power, which made him feared by every living creature. He was left to lie alone in an open area, sinking into his own sadness and sorrow. One day he decided that his terrible fate needs to change, and he came up with a plan to make things better for himself.

      Approaching a small village, the Ten Tails proposed to the fearful people in it a deal. He would give them abilities which with they will be able to prosper and do great things, and in return they will allow the Ten Tails to spend time with them, and also insisted they will consider him to be the new village leader. Thinking carefully about this offer, but also fearing his great power, they decided to accept.

      The first Shinobi were born that day, when the Ten Tails gave the people of the small village, which consisted of about 50 people, Chakra. They began using their new abilities to make larger farm fields with ease, grow forests which they could now easily harvest for wood, and so on. The Ten Tails also helped them with some things, seeing their abilities were still very much limited and they did not see the need to grow stronger.

      In the meanwhile, the other villages grew envy. The other humans wanted to find out why they did not get any abilities, and only that village got to have such amazing talents. Many villages gathered together and rallied around the small village, angry and bitter. They demanded the Ten Tails would give them the abilities as well, but the Ten Tails refused under the claim that the other villages would abuse the abilities. This made the villages even more furious, and soon enough they declared war against the village.

      As the humans attacked the village, the first Shinobi began using their abilities to protect themselves. They found that those abilities can very easily be transferred into combat purposes, which impressed the Ten Tails. The Humans were of no match to the village, and the Shinobi found they did not need to rest much, as the Ten Tails gave them “Chakra” as he called it, and he also named the villagers “Shinobi”, to make them stand out of the ones they were fighting.

      The war lasted for decades, and the village stood strong against all of the attacks that came against it with the aid of the Ten Tails. About 64 years into the war, many of the original Shinobi now had children and even grandchildren, and they were worried about them, and once he saw it, the Ten Tails told the Shinobi to go be with their families, and he will protect them, as they have never let go of their agreement. Among the Shinobi that were within the original 50 was now an elderly woman, who had a few children. The youngest, now at the age of 42, was the Sage of the Six Paths.

      The Sage had the incredible eyes, known as the Rinnegan, from birth, but he had only managed to learn to control his abilities at the current year, and he watched as the Ten Tails wiped many humans one after the other, taking them out as if they were worth nothing. He thought that the war couldn’t be the only way, and he decided that he will find another way.

      The Sage experimented with his abilities and managed to master all, except for one, which was the Outer path of Death, the Seventh path. He became capable of seeing the chakra flow in everyone, transform his hands into strange things, use any jutsu he saw by mimicing the seals used for it, summon many different kinds of animals. After 26 more years of training, at the age of 68, he decided that he was ready nevertheless. After 100 years of fighting, he decided there will be no more fighting among the humans and Shinobi. Approaching the Ten Tails, the now old Sage faced the beast and said that the war needs to stop, and that the Beast needs to be the one to stop it. Outrageous from the fact a Shinobi would dare stand against him after all the years he protected them, the Ten Tails moved his attention to the Sage, and everyone else stood still. Both humans as Shinobi wanted to see what will happen, and what they saw amazed them.

      The Ten Tails and Sage began fighting each other, almost as if they were equals. Their fight would last for many hours, and during it the world has changed. The mountains in which Iwagakure would reside were created, and the eternal rain that would forever wash Amegakure also started. But the most notable thing of all would be that the war between the humans and Shinobi has stopped.

      Near the end of the fight, the Sage stood in front of the great beast, tired and nearly exhausted. The Ten Tails, impressed with the Sage’s abilities and courage, asked him why he insisted on fighting for the humans, and the Sage told him that Death could not be the only way. Then the Sage did something which would be forever known as the greatest jutsu of them all, one which was never revealed. Creating five shadow clones, each clone did a seal that represented one of the natures of the elements, and then the Sage released them all. Feeling the combined chakra of all the natures, the Sage did the seals as well, which created a flash that would blind the entire world, even the Ten Tails.

      After the flash, the Ten Tails was no more. The Sage stood, extremely exhausted and aware he does not have much time left, in front of nine smaller, younger appearing beasts, with each one having a different number of tails that went from one to nine. The Sage smiled to all and greeted them to the world, and told them this will be a place for them to enjoy, explore, and that they will forever live in this world. He went between the beasts, naming them and petting each as he gave them a name. Shukaku, Matatabi, Isobu, Son Goku, Kokuo, Saiken, Chomei, Gyuki and Kurama.

      He told the beasts that from this day on they are free to do as they will, as they were created by him and that he is giving them complete freedom. The Sage told them to grow, learn and become experienced in the world, and that they need to avoid coming into contact with humans or Shinobi. He explained that they are not ready yet, and that one day the humans or Shinobi might approach them instead, and when they did, they must be gentle with the humans and Shinobi, as they can very easily die. He finished his talk with them by telling them that he is very happy to have met them, and then he fell to the ground, now dead due to lack of chakra and exhaustion.

      The beasts, sad from seeing their father and creator dead, each went their own way, with the humans and Shinobi not daring to try and do anything with them, as they feared the unknown power of the new beasts that have appeared. The Shinobi and humans also griefed the loss of the Sage, who they considered to be their savior and greatest hero.

      From that day on, they begin counting the years, marking the Death of the Sage as 0.


      The Great War and post events (open)
      16 Years Ago
      The beginning of what was to become the largest conflict in history. The Shinobi World War did not suddenly ignite from a rapid series of events. Rather, it began slowly. Tensions rose as skirmishes between rival territories broke out along the borders. Trade dispute across nations was the first spark to the fire, and soon territory rights were dragged in. Political disputes boiled over into military action. The first formal battle of the Shinobi World War was seventeen years pre-IC, when Sunagakure scouts encountered an Iwagakure legion within their border. Surely, the other nations were dragged in one way or another. Konohagakure, led by powerful figures such as Daisuke Uchiha, Jinkama Moto, and Elder Koi, moved their forces along the border to prevent the spread of the Suna-Iwa conflict from spilling onto their land. This was misinterpreted as a sign of war, causing both sides to advance upon the nation. Kumogakure, led by the mysterious Genmyou and the eclectic Waki Sanosuke, took advantage of the distraction to move forces on Iwagakure, their long-standing trade rival. Kirigakure was the final village to enter the war, led by Shouji Suzu and Fumiyo Nagano, entering the war as an attempt to expand territory, though they were initially short of the Seven Swordsmen due to their eradication prior.


      15 Years Ago
      The early battles had mostly consisted of small formations of squads fighting over a key road or strategically important village. By now, however, most key locations had a "permanent" owner, so the scale of warfare began to grow. After all, the attacking force would need larger numbers than the defending. It was around this time the war started to get particularly... bloody. Konoha was fighting a three front war, defending from nearly all sides. This kept their line from shifting as they had to focus solely on the defensive. As well, two generals were lost around this time, leaving Konoha looking rather grim. However, a young Zakito Hon and Nakashima Senju began making names for themselves at this time. As well, Kumogakure began to see a rising star in Jinyaru Sanosuke. Speaking of, Kumogakure began to put into motion the early stages of an alliance with Konoha, as the two nations were the only ones not combatting each other and had common trade interests. Sunagakure and Iwagakure began to lose their steam around this time, with Suna being battered by Konoha and Iwa and Iwa being battered by it's three neighbors. On the other side of the world, Kirigakure forces had begun to make great strides in their campaign, with a new gathering of the Seven Swordsmen of the Mist and plenty of victories over their primary opponent: Konoha. Around this time, Amegakure began to form it's own military force as an attempt to protect it's territory from the warring nations around it, as recently they had begun encroaching upon it's territory. Though, it's military was in only in it's baby stages and stood next to no chance against any larger forces that wanted their way with the neutral Amegakure.

      13 Years Ago
      The winding down of the war. Sunagakure was the first village to resign from the war, having taken unsustainable losses and electing to avoid further. Iwagakure was losing a war as well, with the allied forces of Konoha and Kumo closing in they stood no chance but carried on. The Kirigakure/Konohagakure front had recently hit a stalemate, as the defending nation of Konoha finally got the chance to redirect the necessary forces. In this particular year, the First and Second Kazekage were killed, the First Tsuchikage was killed, the Second Hokage was killed, and the First Mizukage was killed. Many high ranking members on all sides met their ends, but no party was left leaderless. The Second Mizukage had been in charge since the start and continued with his plans, while a new Hokage and Tsuchikage were appointed. A new Kazekage was not appointed for another year. The Third Hokage, the young Zakito Hon mentioned before, was not formally inaugurated until after the war, so Jinkama Moto took control of Konohagakure forces with the passing of the Second. With new leadership, the aggressive efforts of Jinkama Moto and Zakito Hon pushed Kirigakure back into it's own territory while their allies in Kumo forced Iwagakure to resign from the war.

      12 Years Ago
      The conclusion of the Shinobi World War. Every country but Konoha and Kiri had resigned themselves from what was now known as The War. The last few months of the war consisted of Konoha forces overpowering Kiri forces over and over again, beating the shinobi back to their village. The final battle of the war took place less than five kilometers from Kirigakure itself, where the Second Mizukage was killed. The war was now officially over with the resignation by Kiri, leaving the world a battered place. Many small villages had been destroyed in the process, and some of the major villages had even seen damage. The loss of human life was incomprehensible at the time. Millions had died over the four and a half years of war. The Third Hokage was formally brought in and a Third Kazekage was finally chosen. The balance of power had since shifted since the beginning, however, with Sunagakure losing some of it's territory and Konoha asserting it's trade rights over other nations. The alliance with Kumogakure remained in place, making the two a superpower of the shinobi world. It would be over a decade before the alliance would be broken, which would cause another shift in the political landscape.

      Around this time, an organization known as Dragon Lotus began to take root. Initially formed by the deceased Second Hokage years ago, the group began recruiting veterans of the Shinobi World War almost immediately after it ended. The few who knew about the organization before now didn't know who was in it anymore, due to the war altering it's roster drastically due to casualties. It would be years before they made any notable acts, but this was the beginning of the modern group. As well, the new Hokage in Konoha formed a clandestine organization of his own personal contacts known as the Hokage Guard. In Kirigakure, the beginning of a inwardly bloody feud across the city began, and their infamy of assassination business began to skyrocket following their defeat. Amegakure's military has finally been properly established, allowing it to be capable of combatting it's large neighbors, though it was too late to actively participate in the Shinobi World War itself.

      11 Years Ago
      Tensions had mostly settled by now. Though bitter resentment remained from the losing countries toward the Konoha/Kumo alliance. The Daimyo of all the nation gathered twice this year. The first time was to formally set up all agreements, to help prevent further warfare. Though, the meeting ended up becoming a heated debate and the results can be argued to be nonexistent. The second time was organized by an outside party in the form of Shoji Hakouten. Another attempt at patching up relations was made, as well as an attempt to head total disarmament from all parties by Shoji, but the negotiations ended the same as before. No progress was made, but at least things weren't made to be worse. Economies had begun to rebuild, and the various territories that managed to avoid the war were seeing the most of the profits being made. Particularly the Land of Iron. On the other end of the scale, shinobi dissent became an all-time high, with many shinobi leaving their villages from regret over the war. Though the rate was still marginally low, it was the highest it had ever been up until that point.

      Kumogakure (open)

      The Founding of Kumogakure,
      By Tsueno, The First Raikage


      (Tsueno means : (恒雄, 恒夫): Japanese name meaning 1) "eternal hero" or 2) "eternal man.")


      A strong clan that resided near what is now modern day Kumo was set on finding and capturing a tailed beast in order to use its power to protect them. The head of this clan Tsueno came the closest to capturing the beast, fighting it until he dropped due to exhaustion. The beast, recognising Tsueno skill decided to spare his life and fled.

      After Tsueno came to, he realised that the beast had spared his life. Instead of causing him to give up the pursuit of the tailed beast, however, it renewed his desire to find the beast and use its power. Travelling to nearby clans, Tsueno convinced them of his search for the beast and told them the knowledge he had gained from fighting it. He gathered the most powerful shinobi from many different clans and they set out to hunt for the beast.

      When they came across the tailed beast once again, the odds were in their favour. Still, many died trying to bring the beast under control. In the end, they managed to hold the beast back, just long enough for (TBN) to seal it within himself. With the power of the beast now under his control, (TBN) united the clans and brought them together to form Kumogakure, believing that they were safer together than apart. The other clans unanimously Tsueno to be their protector, both for his skills as a ninja and for his ability to bring people together. Tsueno accepted this position and thus became the First Raikage.

      * The beast that Tsueno sealed within himself was the Hachibi. While it resented being sealed away, it respected Tsueno skill enough to lend him its power. Once Tsueno passed away, and the Hachibi has sealed away in another vessel, its resentment grew, believing none to be fit of using his power like Tsueno was. This is a part of the reason that the beast began to hate people, believing their reasons for wanting his power to be selfish and arrogant.
      ===============================

      The Passing of the First and rise of the Second Raikage,

      When the First Raikage began to show signs of his age and became ill, the people began to worry about who would take over his place. At the same time, Tsueno began searching for someone worthy of having the Hachibi sealed inside of them.

      The other members of the village thought that a tournament would be the best way to decide who was the best fit to become the new Raikage, and so they picked their best fighters to compete. To Tsueno however, the position of Raikage was not one to be decided by pure fighting prowess alone. He argued with the council that they should find another way to choose a candidate, but the council's mind was set. To them, the Raikage needed to be the strongest member of the village. They also felt that the Raikage should always be the possessor of the Hachibi so that its power could always be used to protect the village.

      (TBN) felt differently from the council. It was his belief that the Hachibi and the Raikage should be separate entities. He had only taken the position in the first place because the villagers looked up to him and he could keep the peace. So, while the council held the tournament to decide who should be the next Raikage, Tsueno set off in search of a person who was pure of heart, to be the new host of the Habichi.

      Tsueno searched throughout the village to find one who was both pure-minded, and also skilled enough to control the beast's power. All the while the council was holding the tournament of champions. The tournament was long and bloody, with many skilled shinobi battling until they could fight no longer. While it was not supposed to be a fight to the death, there were still many casualties in the tournament.

      Finally, a lone victor stood. He was young and talented, but he was also rash and easy to anger. The council put that down to his young age, however, and they decided that Koji ( (光司): Japanese name meaning "light/shining second (child)." Would be a worthy Raikage.
      Tsueno had seen the young man's performance, and while he was impressed with his skill, he saw the anger in the young man and it troubled him.Tsueno again spoke to the council, asking that they not be so quick to choose his successor, and allow him to have a say. Instead of listening to the Raikage however, the council accused him of being too soft and said that his age was blinding him. They demanded that Tsueno make preparations to have the beast sealed within Koji upon his death.

      Angered by their arrogance, and their utter refusal to listen, Tsueno instead made his own plans. He found someone within the village that he knew the council would never consider worthy of becoming Raikage, and he asked her to become the next host of the Hachibi. He had chosen a medical-nin, that held the name of Kiyoshi ( (淳): Japanese name meaning "pure."), someone who was selfless by nature, and someone who the council would deem inferior to other shinobi. While the council groomed Koji to become the Second Raikage, Tsueno began making preparations to transfer the Hachibi to the new host that he had chosen.

      When the council came to ask for the Hachibi to be transferred into Koji They were horrified to discover that Tsueno had instead selected a different host. The First Raikage's last act had been one of defiance against the council. He had done what he had always done, what he thought was best for the village. The council was furious with his decision but they refused to take the new host of the Hachibi as the Second Raikage, something that the First Raikage had hoped would happen. The council announced Koji as the Second Raikage.

      As the First Raikage had hoped for all along, the Hachibi was no longer attached to the role of the Raikage. Despite the First Raikage's wishes, the Hachibi greatly resented his new host. He viewed this host as being too weak for his powers and mocked her hesitancy to use his powers when she had the opportunity. Thus, the start of the beast slowly rise of aggression.
      ===============================

      The rule of Koji, the Second Raikage

      The reign of the Second Raikage was less than spectacular. Though Koji did, in fact, lose much of his foul temper as he grew older, his inexperience soon became quite clear. The Second Raikage relied heavily upon the advice of the council, much to their pleasure. He was convinced that the job of the Raikage was simply to protect the people in times of war. Kumogakure started to struggle under Koji reign.

      Despite his best efforts, he simply wasn't cut out for the diplomatic side of being the Raikage. As the village began to slip into a downward spiral, the council focused more on fighting for their own power than its good being.

      Soon people began to give voice to their concerns, and unrest grew amongst the villagers. There was even talk of a coup if the council couldn't be convinced to select a new Raikage. The only problem was that the council was happy with their position of power, and the Second Raikage merely acted as a figurehead while they pulled all of the strings. Koji began to notice the unrest amongst the villagers and he attempted to fix the situation by confronting the council. His actions were futile, however, as the council simply convinced him that the problems would soon go away and that it was only because of his youth that the villagers doubted his leadership.

      Koji never got a chance to see whether or not the people would grow to accept him, as his reign was cut short due to his untimely demise. The cause of his early death is much disputed and many blame the Third Raikage who took the position very shortly afterwards.

      ===============================

      The rule of Genmyou, the Third Raikage

      The rise of Genmyou to Raikage was a rather grim one. It was around the last years of the Second Raikage and most of the notes, scrolls and books that tell about Genmyou's rise to power have seemed to vanish for some reason. The masked man, who had been part of Kumo's ANBU, was rumoured to have poisoned and drugged the Second Raikage. Some say the dubious man had started to corrupt the Second Raikage, in order to get the seat. It was the start of when many Kumogakure nin saw the rising process of Kumogakure to become stagnant.

      For the next three years, Genmyou didn't improve the situation in Kumogakure. It seemed like that the village was already at it's maximum, of both military as economic strength. Many were however against that, wanting that Genmyou would do something to keep their progression they had to continue. Many were never heard from. Using a clan, the Antare clan, for his own use, Genmyou had given them a special ANBU position. Making sure that political opposition wouldn't rise, Genmyou did manage to keep an overall stable situation in Kumogakure.

      It stayed like that until the year of 455. It was when the First Shinobi World War came to dawn on the land. Because of the little improvement, Genmyou hadn't prepared Kumogakure. It resulted that the first operations and moves of Kumogakure were met with defeat. Even with commanders that had quite some talent, the Cloud wasn't a major player in the first six months of the conflict. Their main opponent was Iwagakure, but in the first month, they had some small skirmishes against Kirigakure and Konohagakure.
      Though the other villages were fighting with all they had, Kumogakure was keeping a rather defensive and self-focused stance. It would only happen when at the year of 456 when the duration of the war had begun to enter the second year, that Kumogakure was starting to take more actions. With Konohagakure still managing to keep their defences up against Iwa, Kiri and Sungakure, Genmyou proposed a co-operation against Iwagakure. It was because of this co-operation that Iwagakure started to lose more ground while both Konoha and Kumo started to gain more. While Konoha eventually started to focus more on the threat of Suna and Kirigakure, Kumogakure's focus remained on Iwagakure.

      With the end of the war in sight, Kumogakure was the only village that hadn't loss a Kage. Though many said it was due Genmyou's leadership and skill, some others knew the truth. The man hadn't left the Cloud during the entire war. The Antare clan had been assigned to guard the Raikage Office while Genmyou stayed safe out of harm's way. Some people were resenting the rule of the man while they knew how the first two Raikages had been. The resentment only grew when they saw that the other villages were growing again. Even Iwagakure, that had been suffering some losses, was something that gave the cause that many began to lose faith in Genmyou. The only improvement they saw in the years that was called the Decade of Peace, was that Genmyou finally accepted an alliance with Konohagakure. Those who had been disgruntled by Genmyou's rule were starting to resent the Third Raikage only more. Even while they had nothing against Konohagakure, many started to complain in secret about Genmyou's slow actions. Even while Genmyou tried to use the Antare clan to trace and silence those people, it started to get slowly out of hand.

      An important event of the faith in Genmyou being lost was when the host of the Hachibi had been kidnapped. Many claimed it was Iwagakure, as an act of revenge and trying to weaken Kumogakure. Nobody is sure who or what had kidnapped the host, but only for the Hachibi to appear in the year of 472. The Eight-Tailed Beast started to cause a lot of damage as it attacks with a rage. Even while Genmyou was there to aid the sealing of the beast in a sealing jar, the faith in the Third Raikage had now truly hit the bottom. Some high ranked people left the village, like Chase Irozaki. If it wasn't for the fact Sunagakure declare war on them and send a mercenary force to stall the Kumogakure nin. Much like how it went with the First Shinobi World War, Genmyou simply sends forth a host, under the command of Jinyaru Sanosuke. Though Kumogakure had received no actual damage, many started to openly question the Third Raikage, seeing that they had little belief in the abilities of the Raikage. But as Genmyou wanted to do something about it, he had a meeting with the Hokage at the Palace of Peace.

      In the Palace of Peace event, Genmyou found his death. By a mysterious group, he fought until his death but was relatively easily beaten by the cunning assistant of the Third Hokage, who had betrayed her superior and then took the mantle of Genmyou. It was the start of Kumogakure's decline. Underneath the leadership of Naomi Hanamoto, the Cloud was losing some of it's best jounin. It would last until that Jinyaru Sanosuke had risen up against Naomi, finding somehow out that she wasn't the real Genmyou.
      =========================================

      The rule of Jinyaru, the Fourth Raikage

      After a long and fierce battle, Jinyaru had defeated Naomi the imposter. With that, he took over the title of Raikage. He was backed up by many, due his achievements and record during the First Shinobi World War as well the short war against Sunagakure. Within the first few months, Kumogakure's might started to grow again.

      Its economic situation started to prosper and people started to gain faith in the Yondaime Raikage. However, Jinyaru didn't extend the alliance with Konohagakure, that was under the leadership now
      of Koi with Zakito gone from the village. However, it seemed there was something with the rank of Raikage. Slowly, Jinyaru stopped to improve the situation of Kumogakure. Though his improvements managed to keep the village in line of that with the other Great Five, Kumogakure started to stop growing again.
      With the rise of Shoji, it became clear that though Jinyaru had done some things, that he wasn't a great improvement from Genmyou either. With the oppression of Shoji's forces, it painfully became clear to

      Kumogakure that they were suffering too much from the fact they weren't able to get leaders as they once had. Jinyaru didn't do much to liberate his people, unlike the leader of the secret Rebellion, Asami Sanosuke. Jinyaru's niece. With the plans and actions, Asami managed to liberate Kumogakure and prepare a host to march to fight against the last of Shoji's forces in the Land of Fire, together with Konoha and Amegakure. But while they had managed to fight off that threat, Jinyaru had been poisoned by some Metsuke (agents of Shoji, that are ex-shinobi.) Though they had managed to save Jinyaru's life, the man was now in a coma.

      =========================================

      The Fifth Raikage

      Needing a new leader, the council didn't have much choice. The jounin commander and uncle of Jinyaru, Waki Sanosuke was too old and past his prime. Asami Sanosuke declined the offer for her own reasons. Unsure who they would choose, but then it happened that Jinyaru managed to recover somewhat from his coma. But while he has recovered, will he be able to continue to guide Kumogakure? Cause the question remains :


      Will Kumogakure finally start to rise or will it grow stagnant, to then have its power crumble again?

      Konohagakure (open)

      The Foundation of Konohagakure,
      Gakuro Senju, The First Hokage and Forest Creator


      After the long and bloody period of the Warring Clans, Konohagakure was founded by the co-operation of the Uchiha and Senju clan. The leaders of both clans came to an agreement as they together build the Leaf together. It was the start of the Hidden Village System as the end of the Warring Clans period. Due his impressive skill with Wood Release, Gakuro Senju was chosen by both the Senju as the majority of the Uchiha clan to become the First Hokage.

      In the first few years, both the Senju as the Uchiha clan were focused on building and expanding the village. It started to flourish, but soon they were getting trouble. Due the fact that they were expanding in the Fire Country, establishing outposts, they attracted the anger of the Kyuubi. For a time, they managed to evade the beast as they weren't sure if they would be a match against the beast. Only for the beast to attack clan after clan, who were fleeing towards Konohagakure. Thought it helped the economy as military strength of the Leaf, something had to be done.

      Under the leadership of Gakuro, the clans of Konohagakure united and fought against the Nine-Tails. After a long and hard struggle, they finally were able to calm the beast as well restrain it. It was sealed away as Gakuro wasn't sure if somebody would be able to fully control the powers of a Bijuu. Even though rumours were confirmed later that people like the First Raikage were able, Gakuro wanted to be careful on the matter. Instead, he kept improving the shinobi system, making the system that is known today.

      After Gakuro was more or less content, he noticed that other villages started to rise. Because he knew that he had to also be careful of choosing a successor, he started to educate and groom several people that he took as his students. The previous four Konohagakure Elders, Daisuke Uchiha and some unnamed others were chosen to become his students. But on his deathbed, Gakuro, however, appointed Daisuke as his successor. This was the start however of a secret war between two camps.

      Gakuro had the vision of a united land. Daisuke saw this as a balance kept between the powerful countries, but the four pupils that would come to known as the Four Konoha Elders saw it differently. They thought that their passed sensei and First Hokage had meant that Konoha should become the powerful centre of the world.

      Thus began the underground war between Daisuke and is against the Elders. A war that was first needed to be prepared before years later to burst out.

      ================================

      War and Preparation,
      Daisuke Uchiha, The Second Hokage and Dragon of Konohagakure


      After Gakuro Senju passed, Daisuke took his place as Hokage. Being the leader of the Uchiha and so far the only one that has been able to get the Eternal Mangekyō Sharingan, due dead of his sister that died of an unknown illness. Not only was he rumoured to be able to be more than a challenge for Gakuro, proving his battle skills, Daisuke also had the loyalty of the present clans in Konohagakure. The first four years of his reign were improving the situation between the clans and infrastructure of the Fire Country, instead of only Konohagakure.

      And even as Hokage, he took up three students as he was well aware that war loomed over the lands. Some say that Daisuke had for that reason tried to make the clans within the Fire Nation more connected to each other. A few months before the war broke out, he had tried to make treaties and try to avoid the war, but somehow it seemed impossible as his offers kept rejected. One after another. The disappointed Hokage then simply prepared his own forces as it seemed that war would soon erupt. And it did.

      However, even while surrounded by enemies from almost every side, the forces of Konohagakure stood their ground. The clans that were more than even united, showed the success of Daisuke's changes. The improved infrastructure also showed that Konohagakure was more than ready to fight for her ground. Appointing his students to lead the defences, Daisuke also managed to finish something he had created in secret. Taking only in the start Jinkama Moto, one of his students, in trust of what he had created, it became the start of the Dragon Lotus. Over the months of the first two years of the First Shinobi World War, Daisuke managed to recruit and convince many to join the ranks of a secret organisation that worked and remained in the shadows. Dragon Lotus.

      While Daisuke was busy to both keep Konohagakure safe as creating the secret organisation, he began to notice that there was another unknown group that was fuelling the war. Nobody else than the Four Elders was having their own organisation that kept the war fuelled, with own secret agents in the other villages. Their plan to cause the war was simply to get one village at the top and then fulfil the dreams of Gakuro. Of a united land.

      Knowing he couldn't just confront the Elders, as they were a bit surprised by the counter actions of Dragon Lotus, Daisuke informed the top of the secret organisation about it. It was the start of a long underground war between the two groups. Between Dragon Lotus and what was called Koi's Agents.
      But there was still a war to be fought. The fighting became only worse over time, as the Five great countries started to push each other, using bigger amounts of shinobi and tools of war. It started to become clear that Konohagakure would collapse in the end. Kirigakure was gaining ground, managing to conquer and hold a strip of the southern land. At the same time were Iwagakure and Sunagakure pushing against the defence line. Knowing he had to risk more, Daisuke took the alliance offer of Genmyou so that Konoha and Kumo could side together against Iwagakure.

      It was also where names of some Konoha-nin were gaining fame. Other than the commanders, some students of Daisuke were feared as what some called 'Kage Killers'. The First and Second Kazekage were killed by Zakito Hon while Jinkama Moto managed to kill the First Mizukage. Both known as students of Daisuke Moto and feared nin, the fronts began to change. Iwagakure was being pushed back while Sunagakure was forced back with the loss of two leaders in a row. Even Kirigakure that first had looked as the strongest force in the war was losing ground.

      Now with their growing successes, the forces of Konohagakure started to press the situation. Only to suffer a heavy blow as it turned out that Daisuke had been assassinated. Just after he had appointed Zakito Hon as his successor. Taking the news and loss, Jinkama Moto took over the leading role as the General of Konoha. Under the combined leadership of Zakito and Jinkama, the forces of Konoha first managed to force Sunagakure to resign from the war. Iwagakure soon followed after Kumogakure had managed to kill the First Tsuchikage, forcing the Stone to resign from the war as well. It was just now Konohagakure and Kirigakure.

      With Kumogakure resigning from the war, it was just Konoha and Kirigakure. Beating the enemy nin and winning ground, the forces of Konoha started to keep winning ground. Eventually, they were very close to Kirigakure. While Zakito and Jinkama were trying to make the Mist sign a peace treaty, the forces of Kirigakure suddenly sallied out. Outnumbering and with experienced troops, Konohagakure won the last battle. The battle where the Second Mizukage was killed by Jinkama Moto. Kirigakure soon signed the peace treaty and it marked the end of the First Shinobi World War.

      =================================

      The Decade of Peace and underground warfare.,
      Zakito Hon, The Third Hokage and White Wolf


      With the war finally over, Konohagakure stood together with Kumogakure at the top. But the fighting had damaged the infrastructure of the nation. The peace treaties managed that Konoha asserted trade rights over several countries as well gaining some ground. With that, Zakito started to rebuild the forces as the economy. His main focus was to make sure that a war wouldn't erupt, but also that if it would happen that the nation wouldn't receive the same beating as before. In his opinion, it was sheer luck and the fact they had some good commanders that they hadn't been overwhelmed by the enemy nin. Also as the youngest Kage that ever had been selected to lead, Zakito organised the Hokage Guard. A small group that were designed to keep him safe, as Zakito had made an enemy out of Sunagakure with the fact that he managed to kill two Kazekages.

      But it was also where the underground war between Dragon Lotus against the Agents of Koi began to increase in scale. Jinkama recruited Zakito into the order and together they began to subtly fight back against the followers and
      agents of the Four Elders. Though peace remained and nobody ever took notice of this war, it was everywhere. Many shinobi that were branded as missing nin were either framed or becoming one because they were at the side of one or another. On the surface, nobody could see the underground war, but it was what kept the Elders from causing another war.

      Though the Dragon Lotus managed to keep any information about them secret, the Four Elders managed to gain more ground. They started a real witch kind of hunt. People who were close to Zakito, as they believed the Third Hokage as a member of the Dragon Lotus, were starting to be framed. It resulted in the break up of the Hokage Guard, as both Hisoka Uchiha and Meisa Ichi left the Leaf for two years.

      However, the Elders couldn't simply frame Zakito as the man was too loved and respected by the Leaf. Even though he had gained good successes, he had managed to build a healthy relationship with Iwagakure and managed to gain a starting talk of another alliance with Kumogakure. In other words, people started to view him as the one that could keep another World War from happening. But the same didn't count for Jinkama Moto. The Elders managed to get Jinkama angry and at a point a fight broke out. Even while the Elders were high classified shinobi, Jinkama kept his own ground until a mysterious figure with a white mask brought him away from the battle.

      Without his jounin commander, Zakito stood alone for the task of governing the Leaf. Without the Hokage Guard, Jinkama and such, Zakito noticed that the Elders were trying to win ground against him. Because of that, he tried to give the Elders a wrong image. By acting lazy and easy going, he kept the Elders on a wrong track, while actively working on fighting against their influence. But in the year of 472, just a year after the alliance between Konoha and Kumogakure, the Nine-Tails attack the Leaf. It was a surprise as ever since the last jinchuriki had died in the First Shinobi World War, the people of Konoha hadn't heard or expected the beast to attack them again. Though the ANBU and Zakito had prepared a little and with that, the Third Hokage managed to seal the Kyuubi again. However, Konoha had endured quite some damage and was in need to rebuild it again. The attack of the Kyuubi, however, marked the end of the Decade of Peace.

      Several months, Sunagakure suddenly declared war against Konohagakure as they launched troops in rapid speed into the Land of Fire. Rallying the forces of Konohagakure, Zakito took the service of Naomi Hanamoto as his assistant as he chose several people to lead divisions. He then leads them as the commander against the onslaught of Sunagakure, knowing through messages that Kumogakure would back them up. With gaining victories over the Sand forces, repelling them in an unmatched speed out of their land, Zakito led a combined force of Konoha and Kumo into the Wind Country. There he continued to lead the fights as the war dragged on for several months. It finally stopped as Zakito managed to kill the Third Kazekage in the last battle, where the combined forces of Kumo and Konoha also managed to defeat the One-Tailed Beast.
      Some young people, such as Kensuke Nimatsu started to make a name here.

      ===============================

      Betrayal and second chances.,
      Hisoka Uchiha, Fourth Hokage and Seeker


      After the short war, Zakito would meet the Third Raikage in a meeting. It was set in the Palace of Peace within the Hotspring Country. But it turned out to be a trap by a mysterious group, that was allied with Koi's Agents. There the small group managed to kill Genmyou while wounding Zakito. The latter managed to flee the scene, wounded. With the news spreading, the assistant Naomi Hanamoto declared while she posed as Genmyou that it was Konohagakure that had killed Genmyou. It was not an act that was done as the mockery to Zakito's achievements of keeping the peace, but to slowly stir up a conflict again as the Elders took over Konohagakure. They started to try to hunt down more Dragon Lotus members, as a group of the secret faction started to rise from the shadow. Such as Jinkama Moto. Zakito, however, wasn't seen anywhere, many thinking the man had died already.

      Been sent on missions, many were facing against members of the Dragon Lotus. Missions that were very important, such as the capturing of the Two-Tails, kept being bothered by members of the Dragon Lotus. Eventually during a battle between Team 4 and 6 against two high-ranked Dragon Lotus members, Zakito arrived on the scene. Defending and rescuing his adoptive daughter, he soon faced against a white masked man, that was called Dragon. After a fierce fight, Zakito seemed to be killed and brought back to Konohagakure. Under the influence of the Elders, some saw Zakito as the source that their influence and might wasn't like how it was in Daisuke's time. It didn't stop the fact that the members of the Dragon Lotus were still moving around, as their plan to stop the Elders was coming closer.


      It continued on like that until the Chuunin Exam at the capital of the Rice Country. There the factions of Dragon Lotus and Agent's of Koi waged a huge battle. Only, unlike how they had planned it, the forces of the Elders were facing against the shinobi of every village as well. The members of the Dragon Lotus hadn't dressed differently, making it impossible for many to know they fought side by side against the Agents of the Elders. It was, however, the rampaging of the Two and Nine-Tails hosts that caused the most damage to the city.

      Meanwhile, a host of Konoha-nin managed to arrive at the scene. Contacted by an unknown person who had introduced himself as 'Mutual Friend', Hisoka Uchiha and Meisa Ichi were brought together at the Tomb of Daisuke Uchiha. There they met Team 4 and Yumi Hasewaga. Informed of what was going on, the Uchiha decided to head to Keishi to gain the Daimyo's support. Convincing the fooled Daimyo, Hisoka took a host of the garrisoned Konoha-nin and lead them to the Capital of the Rice. Once the battle was over, each village decided to go back and keep contacts with each other to a minimum. It also revealed that Zakito wasn't dead. Using the help of his good friend, Chang, who was a very infamous medical-nin and head of the Konoha Hospital, Zakito didn't take the title of Hokage. Instead, he simply managed to arrange that Hisoka would take the title. But it wasn't just Zakito who returned to the Leaf. Jinkama Moto returned as well and gained the rank and seat of Jounin commander, a position that gave many hope and trust in the newest Hokage.

      Appointing Meisa Ichi as his assistant, Hisoka is seen as the Hokage who furthermore improved the infrastructure and might of the Fire country, thus Konohagakure. Inspired by the ideas of Meisa Ichi, he started to create the Fire Union, bringing some of the surrounding smaller countries into a union that would work close together. Though the smaller countries were nothing more than actual vassals, Hisoka was seen as what some said a good example of a Hokage, even wondering if he would become just like Daisuke, Hisoka's uncle.

      Only while the Fire Union was growing and gaining strength, they soon were surprised by the Oppression of Shoji. Though they managed to fight back and liberate themselves, Konohagakure stands on the brink of a new dawn. The death of Jinkama Moto sounds the bell of a new time in the Leaf, as the Fire Union keeps growing and the might of the Leaf is the greatest now among the Hidden Villages.

      ''Tempered in Stone and Fire,
      Comes our blood.''

      -Motto of the Homura dynasy

      But soon the Fire Daimyo announced he will step down, announcing that he would appoint Kiyomi Sato-Hon as his successor, starting thus the new dynasty of the Hons as the rulers of the newly formed state. The Fire Union was then reformed into a new found Empire, where the client states were honour bound to become provinces of the Akinian Empire.

      The Akinian empire keeps flourishing. Its disciplined military has seen several reforms in various sectors, that have further created a strong unified military that is composed out of various provinces that were once independent countries. Economics wise speaking, the large realm boosts a large amount of trade with Kumogakure, while it is able to provide enough sufficient supplies to see to their own needs. The only problem that the current ruling dynasty of the Empire consists out of one member.

      Kirigakure (open)

      Foundation of Kirigakure
      Otokano Kitsune, First Mizukage


      The Daimyo of the Land of Water recognized the need to establish a shinobi village and permanent military force, following the recent appearances of such villages in the other major countries. However, his plan to make the village began years before it actually was formed. The problem was that most of the country relied on trade and was already defensible by militia and clan forces. It wasn't until the Daimyo approached the infamous Suzu clan was progress made to forming Kirigakure. A meeting was organized between the Daimyo, several of the Suzu, and every major clan head and business leader in the Land of Water. Needless to say, it was quite the conference with so many in attendance, and many with foul dispositions and a belief against that of the Daimyo.

      By the end of the meeting, the Daimyo had convinced the representatives of his country that a village was needed. They decided the location of the Hidden Village would be where the meeting was held (a rather misty and wet region). Kirigakure came to be its name. When deciding who was to be military leader, however, another problem arose. Naturally, it was assumed that brawn was over brains, and the attending Suzu appeared most likely to take the role. However, all of them denied it, believing that the smartest should lead. It was voted that a thirty year-old Otokano Kitsune would take the title. While the corporations in attendance complained that having such a seemingly weak leader was asking for danger, the shinobi in attendance all felt that he was perfect for the position. Construction of Kirigakure began in the year 420.

      The Land of Water remained largely the same as before, except now having a military backbone to its powerful naval trade system. As such, the added security made Kirigakure a hotspot for business, and its economy and population grew quickly. As such, it was proven that choosing Otokano as leader was wise. After first establishing a powerful navy, Kirigakure grew its shinobi population. The Seven Swordsmen of the Mist became an organization rather soon, to demonstrate the elite. The economic boom continued for nearly two decades, making Kirigakure one of the richest villages. However, around the year 445, Otokano realized that his age would become a liability. With this in mind, he selected Shouji Suzu to succeed him as Second Mizukage.

      ===============================

      The Great War
      Shouji Suzu, Second Mizukage


      With Otokano retired, Shouji led the village by himself. As the Head of the Suzu clan, he was regarded as not only one of the most powerful shinobi of Kirigakure, but of the world. Though his heart was in the right place, and he was by no definition unintelligent, he did not have the genius that Otokano was gifted with. However, he still maintained Kirigakure's prosperity. That is, until a major earthquake rocked the north in the Land of Water, before a tsunami destroyed most of the coastline. Kirigakure responded to this by using its shinobi to assist in the disaster relief force, and as such saw a boost in their personal economy. However, the Land of Water aside from Kirigakure found itself on the losing end of the money spectrum.

      As tensions grew between the mainland countries, Shouji consulted with the aged Otokano. The two devised a plan to ensure Kiri's safety. Shouji spent months organizing a spy network in Konoha, Kumo, Suna, and Iwa. And the effort paid off. Though the Seven Swordsmen of the Mist had suffered a major blow at the hands of one Sahoru Hon prior to the war, Kirigakure had its forces ready. The moment the Shinobi World War broke out, Shouji put his spies into motion and advanced his forces. Together with Otokano, he lead Kiri forces mainly against Konohagakure starting in the year 457.

      At first, the combined power and brains from Shouji and Otokano led Kiri to many victories. Some overwhelming. With Konoha's forces divided and no battle geniuses to rival Otokano, Kirigakure pushed deep into the Land of Fire. However, after several years of beating Konoha back, the losing side had a struck of brilliance. Under the leadership of Jinkama Moto, an elite strike force had detained one of Shouji's spies and managed to find where Otokano was situated at. With his strike force, Jinkama snuck behind enemy lines for a hit-and-run tactic that soon became a staple of his war effort. During the raid on his camp, Otokano was killed during an attempt to capture him. Though the strike force was nearly decimated as it fled, Jinkama survived to lead his army another day.

      With the death of the First Mizukage, Shouji was left on his own to lead the armies. He quickly assembled several intelligent and powerful shinobi of his to form an advisor panel. This panel included Kang Nomonoto and Fumiyo Nagano, who both would later become Mizukage. Despite the efforts of this group, they could not replicate Otokano's genius. And as Konoha freed up its forces from the Suna and Iwa fronts, it now had more manpower to fight Kiri. This double-whammy led to Kiri forces being pushed out of the Land of Fire and back into their own territory.

      Despite the powerful navy, Konoha simply had too much manpower to properly halt. Shouji quickly retreated his forces to defend the capital and Kirigakure once Konoha was in the Land of Water. Both cities were very defensible, so he knew they could at least prevent being taken over. Konoha forces moved on Kirigakure itself, with the army setting up a camp just beyond the horizon of Kirigakure itself. With the advice of his panel, Shouji decided to attack Konoha's forces instead of wait for the rumors of a treaty to come forward. In the final battle of the war, a portion of Kiri's defenses took on Konoha head-on, and resulted in the final confrontation of commanders. Jinkama Moto and Shouji Suzu squared off personally in a test of pure might; a battle that Shouji did not survive.

      ===============================

      The Bloody Mist
      Kang Nomonoto, Third Mizukage


      Shouji had died without appointing a successor. After the battle, following Kiri's retreat back into its village, the Elder Council held an emergency meeting. They put a vote as to who would become the Third Mizukage, selecting from Shouji's panel of advisors. All things in consideration, they elected Kang Nomonoto to succeed the deceased Shouji Suzu. Following the battle, Konoha presented a treaty to end the war. Kang met with Jinkama Moto personally and the two signed the treaty, bringing an official end to the Shinobi World War. And bringing war debt upon the Land of Water, for their occupation of the Land of Fire during the war.

      From the beginning of his rule, Kang made it clear that he was power hungry. He immediately instituted laws and policies that prevented him from being removed from the Mizukage seat. As well, he made strict labor laws to keep the people working and oppressed. With the Seven Swordsmen of the Mist as his personal dogs, more or less, he ruled with an iron fist. Granted, his policies extorted enough money from the people of Kirigakure to pay for the war damages rather quickly. His oppressive behavior wasn't met with acceptance, however. Constant acts against him were committed, mainly through propaganda to instigate a bigger uprising. However, no movement gained enough momentum to overthrow Kang.

      After years of his policies, which had also expelled foreign immigrants and called for on-the-spot executions of anyone caught out past their age curfew or not working during their designated hours, Kang received his karma. An assassination was exacted on him out of revenge by Soru Deshuga and Liaru Hotari. With Kang's death, the people expected the next leader would bring an era of piece.

      ===============================

      False Prophet
      Fumiyo Nagano, Fourth Mizukage


      To avoid another scenario of oppression, as with Kang, the Elder Council elected his long-time rival Fumiyo Nagano to lead Kirigakure. Though the two had worked together before, they had a long history of animosity between the two. This led the Elders to believe that Fumiyo would be able to fix the problems left by Kang. However, this proved not to be the case. Rather, Fumiyo picked up where Kang left off. After dropping some of the more extreme policies, such as instant executions, he instead implemented his own for his own personal gain. Not only was Fumiyo impossible to remove from power, but he was turning a profit.

      As evidenced by the lush Mizukage Mansion, Fumiyo was using Kirigakure and the neighboring areas to his advantage. Only in it for the power, Fumiyo made no efforts of improving the economy or political relations with other nations. As long as he was in charge of Kiri, he had done enough in his eyes. The general consensus of the majority was that absolutely nothing had changed, despite promises. As such, Fumiyo's reign had more uprisings than Kang's. It was also during his reign that he took the opportunity to topple one of his biggest threats and one of the most powerful organizations in the world: the Suzu clan.

      Despite the Suzu's intimate relation with the formation of Kirigakure, they intentionally tried to remain out of the spotlight. As such, they had been following the orders of whichever Mizukage was in charge since Kiri was built. As such, this gave them a status of privilege, even in Kang and Fumiyo's times. After all, no Kage would be able to contain the powerful Suzu should they feel like it. So while the Suzu were on Kiri's side, they were rewarded. The laws that brutalized the people of Kiri were ignored by the Suzu, and they even helped Fumiyo put down several uprisings by the populace. However, Fumiyo recognized that they were single-handedly his greatest threat. Especially with the fact that the Suzu were performing less and less assassinations, which meant that they were spending more time within the walls of Kiri.

      One day, one of Fumiyo's spies found that the Suzu were starting to bicker with each other, in regards to the Shinobi World War. Capitalizing on this, Fumiyo ordered his spies to incite rebellious talks into some of the younger Suzu. This in turn caused conflict within the clan, as most of which were still loyal to Fumiyo. After months of the arguing escalating, Fumiyo knew he needed to make a little push. He sacrificed one of his spies to pose as a member of the Suzu and attempt to kill another. Though the plot itself failed, it still caused exactly what he wanted. The Suzu began to turn on themselves, and Kirigakure found that this clan brought quite the destruction.

      The Suzu compound was directly in the center of Kirigakure, and the outbreak of fighting was more like a civil war. Four days of non-stop fighting broke out and caused a large portion of Kirigakure to be destroyed, almost completely decimating the Suzu compound itself. In the end, only four Suzu survived; one teenager and three children. The teenage girl, Rika Suzu, killed the last of her kind aside from the three children, and the four survivors were rounded up and arrested. After detaining them in solitary confinement for several weeks, as he decided how he would make this look to the rest of the world, Rika Suzu escaped prison and fled the country. In response, Fumiyo decided to waste the children rather than raise them to be loyal to him. The Suzu that had provided the backbone of Kirigakure's formation was now basically extinct, minus one survivor.

      With the Suzu gone from Kirigakure, having left a wake of destruction in their collapse, Fumiyo forced the civilian population to begin reconstructing the city. The labor grew harsher and the economy declined further. Resentment toward him only grew progressively worse. At this point, Fumiyo began using the ANBU to assassinate civilian targets suspected of inciting revolution. This went on for several years, with several uprisings coming and going along the way. However, in the year 474, Fumiyo's reign was brought to its end.

      ===============================

      Road to Recovery?
      Rika Suzu, Fifth Mizukage


      The young Rika Suzu returned to Kirigakure. Matured by her tragic life and experiences around the world, she came back for revenge. The power of the Suzu was legendary, and she aimed to use all of it to kill Fumiyo Nagano. The young woman infiltrated Kirigakure and confronted Fumiyo. She wanted him to know he was going to die before killing him. However, Fumiyo declared he would finish what he started and attacked Rika before she could attack him. Despite his immense power, being known for taking on entire regiments back in the Shinobi World War using jutsu without handseals, Rika proved to be more than his match.

      Unable to handle the Suzu, Fumiyo called upon the Seven Swordsmen of the Mist to defend him. All seven of the modern Swordsmen proceeded to fight Rika, the first time all seven had ever fought one target since Sahoru Hon. Even with eight opponents, Rika managed to outclass the lot of them. And once she convinced the Swordsmen to stand down, as this fight was to give Fumiyo what he deserved, she was easily able to finish off Fumiyo Nagano once and for all. Though her initial plan was to kill the man and leave, she was convinced by one of the Swordsmen to stay in Kirigakure and even possibly lead it.

      With this suggestion in mind, Rika went before the Elder Council and convinced them to make her the Fifth Mizukage. The bloody era of Kirigakure ended in bloodshed, but Kiri was now free of the chains of oppression. Immediately, Rika began eradicating old policies and laws. For the first time in over a decade, immigration was legal and curfews were no longer enforced. Kirigakure's economy actually began to grow, and the people were ecstatic that they had a leader that genuinely cared for them. However, what they didn't know was how troubled Rika Suzu really was. Despite her good intentions, the woman was not sane. Something that only those close to her knew. And after becoming pregnant, some people began to doubt her.

      Though she has continued leading the village through her pregnancy, the question of her security was raised. The fear on everyone's minds was that another person like Fumiyo or Kang would try to kill her in her vulnerability and take over Kiri. This never ended up happening, as not only did the shinobi population do well in ensuring Rika's safety without being given orders, but the civilian population did what they could too. The most notable time was when Rika went into labor, and a mob of civilians formed a wall around the Mizukage Mansion to prevent anyone from sneaking in, or even getting in for that matter. Now juggling being a mother of a very young child with being the rising star leader of Kirigakure, Rika Suzu has been labeled as a gift to the world. After all, her sweet voice, kind actions, and surprisingly wise leadership have brought Kirigakure from the darkness.

      At least, that was what people wanted to believe from the start. Though her leadership has stopped, some of the grief and sorrow that the previous Mizukages had caused, many were still silently doubting her. Many 'traditions' of the past Mizukages continued underneath Rika's rule and when some saw her as nobody else who just packed it in a nicer outfit, people started to become a bit restless. With a less harsh grip on the people, some events eventually caused a backfire.

      Now, at the dawn of a new era for Kirigakure, who will you support? The loyalist, who want to keep Rika on the throne or fight for more freedom in Kirigakure? Will you stand with or against the coming revolution?

      Amegakure (open)

      The first signs of a village

      The origins of Amegakure are closely tied to the Plain of Endless Rains that is located in The Rain Country. The first settlers to arrive at the plain did so about seventy five years ago. The plain, thanks to the above average amount of farming allowed the settlers to easily work on crops, while the nearby lake offered them food in the forms of fish. More and more settlers arrived at the place and instead of working against each other as was common in The Rain Country, they started to work together. More farmhands could expand the fields, thus granting more crops and more food in turn. The separate, small settlements soon started to work together on a daily basis and more and more people were arriving to the Plain of Endless Rains. The area in general was very prosperous and five years after the first settlers arrived, they created their first village - The Village of Endless Rain.

      The Village of Endless Rain was a far cry from the rest of villages in the Shinobi world of that age because of one thing - it lacked any contact with Shinobi. It was a village of farmers, fisherman, clay crafters and hunters. Yet, the village prospered and continued to grow at a steady pace. Eight years after the founding, it was already the largest settlement in The Rain Country. First signs of industry also showed up in the village - most notable docks for ships. The village grown so much it could not longer support its inhabitants solely from farming and fishing, so the Elder Council, the first kind of leadership that was formed in the village decided to industrialize the village. The industrialization was welcomed widely. Every person that was able to do any help did so, and the village soon started to bloom even more.

      All changed in the year 420, when the three Sutā brothers arrived into the village and wanted to settle down in it. The Elder Council gladly allowed them to stay and dedicated a part on the outskirts of the village to them. The outskirts of the village were chosen because of the lack of lights during nights - it was did so the brothers can study the night sky without any limitations. The brothers were very popular in the village and in the years following their arrival, they formed one of the most important Amegakure clans, the Sutā Clan.

      ===============================

      The first contact with Shinobi World and the Great Flood

      Twenty years since the settling on the Plain, the small settlements transformed into a prosperous village. The Sutā clan spread all around the village and was gaining a well earned reputation for its deeds toward the village, deeds that were acknowledged by The Elder Council as well. The industrialization, thanks to a concentrated effort from every single villager was over. The year was 420 and The Village of Endless Rain officially become the Capital of The Rain Country. Even more people arrived into the village, together with the government of The Rain Country. The Elder Council decided they were up to the challenge it posed, and once again the entire village stood united. Government buildings were constructed, together with several skyscrapers to house the various institutions. The industrialization took on to an even larger scale then before and despite its small size, Ame was turning a highly industrialized village. The Elder Council took great caution with the process and thanks to their superior efforts, the industrialization did not destroy the environment.

      More and more skyscrapers were erected to house the flood of people wanting to live in the village, and they soon became the dominant portion of the city. It was in this period of time that the first real test for the village took place. The climate of the Plain was very rainy, but after year 430, it increased drastically. Floods started to take place from the amount of rain water that fell on the plain. The aging Elder Council united the village in the efforts once again. Despite the villagers best efforts, they were unable to handle the situation, so the Council made a great decision - Amegakure will request aid from the Shinobi world. While some were worried by the news of foreign shinobi arriving in their village, most welcomed them with open hands.

      The Shinobi that arrived made a shocking discovery. The sudden increase in rain activity had a lot to do with The Sage of The Six Paths - the rain was there from the time he visited the place. Rumors are that it is a technique of the Sage that was activating during periods of time, but since no records from the Plain of Endles Rains were available from before the first settling, it could not be confirmed or denied. Despite the best efforts of the Shinobi that were called, the rains overwhelmed their superior efforts. The floods made the lake spill out. To the surprise of anybody here, the water acted rather strangely - instead of destroying the village, it surrounded it in a ring like fashion. So The Village of Endless Rains was now on an island floating in the middle of the Great Flood, as the newly formed lake was called.

      ===============================

      The Village Hidden by Rain and The First Shinobi World War

      The Great Flood was over and the times were changing in the village as well. In their gratitude for saving the village, The Elder Council announced their gratitude and offered a chance for the foreign Shinobi to stay in their village. They gladly accepted and joining forces with the Sutā Clan, they started to spread their teachings to any willing villagers. Soon, training centers and a Ninja Academy were established in the village. As the integration of Shinobi into the larger society went well, The Elder Council decided their time was over and offered the leadership of the village to them. The Shinobi gratefully accepted and went on to create The Council, the new ruling body that closely followed the traditions of The Elder Council, while the leading member of The Council was being called " The Rain Shadow ", or Amekage.

      Amegakure entered a Golden Age of growth under the guidance of The Council. The village experienced an unprecedented growth in every aspect possible, a growth that lasted for almost thirty years. The Shinobi system was established in the village, and the Sutā proved to be essential in this period of time. The clan rapidly expanded and was well liked in Ame, doing several important missions for the village, as well as contributing to the overall growth of the village. After twenty nine years of growth, everything changed when tensions between the Five Great Nations escalated rapidly. In year 460, the First Shinobi World War broke out, and most of the world was affected by the intense fighting.

      Amegakure, having no real military nor the desire to join the bloodshed, declared neutrality. The declaration was grudgingly accepted by the combatants of the World War and Ame bought itself some time to prepare for future wars. In year 460, the basics of the Amegakure forces were prepared for their only duty - to guard the borders of the small, neutral nation. In the same year, the sides in the conflict were heading towards ignoring their neutrality to gain the upper hand in the conflict, and thus The Council engaged in intense diplomatic talks. They succeeded and their neutrality was officially accepted by The Five Great Nations. Thus, in year 463, the Amegakure Armed Forces were operating at their full capacity, prepared to defend their beloved nation. Amegakure survived the war without and damage and remained independent since those days.

      ===============================

      One man rises, a village falls

      After the years following The First Shinobi World War, things were starting to move in the once quiet village. Two men started to rise in Amegakure - both of them Jounins, both being unusually active. One of them was called Shinchi, who was rising to a position of power in The Council. The other was called Ryoku Samidare, who gained popular support for his peace oriented mindset. Both of them were well liked and it was clean that the next Amekage will be picked from the two of them. They continued their careers for several years, and both of them did great things for Amegakure in their own ways. While no longer growing, the village was stable and no internal struggles took place. Things settled down in the Shinobi World, but for Ame, they will just start happening.

      Due to unrest in the Sutā clan and disagreements between the clan members, they started to fight each other in an all out war. Despite all attempts from The Council and the rest of the village to calm down the raging fights, they were unsuccessful and soon, the Sutā Clan was almost gone from Amegakure. The events had a great impact on the village, and while Ryoku advised against radical changes, The Council decided to act in favor with Shinchi - who used the power vacuum and gained further power in the village. Soon after these events, Ryoku declined to be a potential Amekage candidate, and so the road for Shinchi was clean. With Ryoku out of the way, nothing could stop him from becoming the next Amekage. That also meant nothing could stop him in his desire for power, as Ryoku Samidare left the village for some time on longer missions.

      The year was 473 when Shinchi was voted the next Amekage by The Council. Upon officially assuming office, his first act was to disband The Council and usurp all the power in the village. Some villagers were wary of this event, but nothing could prepared them for the events of the two years that took place. The village entered a sharp decline in both prosperity and morality, as questionable people rose to positions of power - the most notorious was the Jounin Commander Soru Deshuga. Harsh times fell upon the village where the leadership did little to care about the events in the village. The industry declined and the population was not very satisfied with the conditions they lived in.

      ===============================

      The Metsuke invasion and the return of Ryoku

      When the Metsuke invasion took place, the people of Ame made no attempts to resist. Depressed from the previous two years, some even helped the occupation. Shinchi´s reign was ended when the Metsuke occupants killed him and installed a Prefect instead of him. The following oppression was brutal and underground movements soon started to form, most of them being dismantled in a brutal fashion. The most prominent ones were The Azure Tide led by Soru Deshuga, and the movement of Ryoku Samidare who returned some time after the occupation started. The two groups joined forces and they liberated their village, but failed to capture the Prefect. The occupation ended a few months after it started and Ryoku played a role in the events taking place in The Fire Country. There, he prepared the basics of a future alliance with Konohagakure that will ensure a better future for the village.

      It was revealed that Shinchi had some regret over his actions during his last days and named Ryoku the successor in his role. Ryoku officially assumed the position four months after they ended the occupation and is working on rebuilding the village from the ground. He is working hard on putting competent people into important positions in the government, as well as to finalize the alliance with Konohagakure. Amegakure joined the Fire Union, becoming thus a client state. This has caused the village to experience a boost in its prosperity as well enjoying the reinforced security of the Union.

      However, with the reforming of the Fire Union into an empire, it was made clear that the Rain like the other client/vassals states of the Fire Union would be introduced as provinces of the new formed state and government. The Amekage now upholds an oath of loyalty, bound to follow and support the rulers of the Empire of Akino.






    • Kumogakure (open)
      The year of 420, the founding of Kumogakure
      Kumogakure is founded by the First Raikage, that united clans together as he managed to lead them together to seal the Hachibi away in him. Soon after, the Village Hidden in the Clouds was founded and build.

      The year of 441
      With growing ill, the First Raikage and the council sought for another Raikage. Organizing a tournament to find a worthy successor, the First managed to seal the Hachibi away as he was of the opinion that the Raikage shouldn't be the strongest person, but one that had the abilities to lead the village. Thus the reign of the First Raikage ended and that of the Second began.

      The year of 442
      Koji rises as the Second Raikage. While being a very strong shinobi, his rule wasn't that impressive. He is the one that is the first of the Raikages that showed that incapable leadership causes a village to decline in power and prosperity.

      The year of 452
      With his sly work, Genmyou managed to become the Third Raikage. The growth and progression Kumogakure was making is even slower than had ever been under the rule of Genmyou. Under his command, the Antare clan rose to a better position as Genmyou made them his own kind of ANBU, only being loyal to him.

      The year of 460
      The start of the First Shinobi World. Though being part at the brink of war, Kumogakure didn't participated as much as the other villages had done. Its main rival and opponent was Iwagakure and soon Kumogakure made a military alliance with Konohagakure to crush most of Iwagakure's forces. It was the time that names like Jinyaru and Waki Sanosuke were made infamous, same as Chase Irozaki.

      The year of 464
      The end of the First Shinobi World War. With the end, Kumogakure managed to gain some war payments from Iwagakure as well managing to become together with Konohagakure a super power, as the two held a good bond together. Genmyou's decline also started around this time.

      The year of 471
      An alliance is made between Kumo and Konohagakure, due their good bonds and as a honor to the alliance they had held in the First Shinobi World War.

      The year of 472
      The attack of the Hachibi on Kumogakure, causing Kumogakure to weaken. Shortly, Sunagakure launched a war campaign against the alliance of Kumo and Konohagakure. Like before Genmyou did little to inspire any leadership abilities, sending Jinyaru Sanosuke to lead the host of Kumogakure against Sunagakure.

      The year of 473
      The end of Genmyou's reign as the Third Raikage, due the event of the Palace of Peace. Being murdered by a mysterious group, Naomi Hanamoto takes up the fake identity of Genmyou. It started the decline of Kumogakue, as Naomi ended the life of several jounin and taking out the Antare clan.

      The year of 474
      Jinyaru Sanosuke, find out that Naomi's identity. A fierce battle erupts, where Jinyaru manages to defeat and kill Naomi. With Naomi's death, the man got the seat of Raikage. The start of his reign saw that Kumogakure started to grow again in power, only to become stagnant as Jinyaru's pacfistic nature didn't allow the economical and military expansion it needed.

      However, in the same year Jinyaru's reign ended with Shoji's oppression. With the oppression of Shoji, Jinyaru was put out of office and when the oppression was nearly defeated, he got poisoned. Though the poison was later neutralized, but due the long time of being ill Jinyaru entered a coma state.

      The year of 475
      The start of Takeru's reing as the Fifth Raikage.

      The year of 476
      The introduction of a new system where the inhabits of the Cloud and her vassals are needed to wear tags around their neck that have a special code inscribed on it. This allows the government to easier track down where somebody has been born, what his or her occupation is and parents.


      Konohagakure (open)

      The year : 404
      Konohagakure has been build, after the Senju and Uchiha formed together the foundation. Due his impressive Wood Release, Gakuro Senju has been chosen as the First Hokage. Being the first of the Hidden Villages, the First Hokage was also the one that started the modern shinobi system. Due it's great success, it caused the rise of the Hidden Village system that is known today.

      The year : 451
      The First Hokage dies of old age, leaving the title and all it's responsibilities in the hands of Daisuke Uchiha. It was also the year where the Uchiha decided to change a bit about the system, introducing more clans into Konohagakure. It was thanks to Daisuke that the clans outside Konohagakure, such as the Hon clan allied with the Leaf.

      The year : 460
      The start of the First Shinobi World War. Konohagakure had already been preparing for the coming onslaught under the leadership of Daisuke Uchiha. With the official start of the war, Konoha was already part of it on the first day, having declared war back on Sunagakure and Iwagakure.

      The year : 461
      The death of the Second Hokage, Daisuke Uchiha. Zakito Hon is chosen as Third Hokage, but only not formally inaugurated until after the war. Until then, Jinkama Moto (who was also a student of Daisuke) was appointed as supreme commander over the forces of Konohagakure. Even due the death of the Second Hokage, Konohagakure was making a lot of success against both Kirigakure as Iwagakure.

      The year : 463
      The end of the First Shinbi World War, with also Zakito Hon officially becoming the Third Hokage. The start of the Decade of Peace. Also the talks about an alliance with Kumogakure have started, but are slowed down in the process due the Konohagakure Elders.

      The year : 471
      Kumogakure and Konohagakure have entered a military alliance, as well the talks begin about an economical co-operation between the two great powers of the Five great Countries.

      The year : 472
      The attack of the Kyuubi on Konohagakure. A few months later, Sunagakure declares war on the Konoha-Kumogakure Alliance. The short war was in a few words : brutal and harsh. Both Konohagakure as Kumogakure didn't suffered much losses on their side, but Sunagakure ended up with the dead of their Third Kazekage as well many of it's jounin and ANBU ranked shinobi. Though the war did little damage to the economical situation of each village, Sunagakure suffered a great military loss.

      The year : 473
      The secret war between Dragon Lotus and the Elder's forces (known as Koi's Army) started to escalete. The usually 'silent war' broke out in a more open warfare. With the Elders managing to brand most members of the Dragon Lotus as missing nin, most don't view the Dragon Lotus in a bright light. Also the time that Zakito 'faked' his death, to which Koi became the Fourth Hokage Candidate. However, the forces of the Elders were soon defeated with the battle at the Capital of the Rice Country. In the same year, Hisoka was chosen as Yondaime Hokage, because Zakito wouldn't want to accept the title and rank any more.

      The year : 475
      The Konohagakure Guardians is founded by Lilia Hon. As well the death of Jinkama Moto.

      The year : 476

The wall has several gates, which are guarded and due barriers and seals, it is hard to sneak past the new security measure.



      Kirigakue (open)


      The year of 420
      Kirigakure was built, following the implementation of a commercial coalition backed by the Suzu clan. The title of Mizukage was given to Otokano Kitsune, for his leadership ability and strong relations with all of the clans and organizations that came to form Kirigakure.

      The year of 445
      Shouji Suzu is announced as the Second Mizukage, due to his immense skill. Otokano stepped down as commander, believing his age deterioration had eclipsed his capacity to protect and lead Kirigakure. Around this time, the north of the Land of Water was struck by a powerful earthquake and tsunami. The damage caused actually ended up promoting the growth of Kirigakure, as it lent its manpower and resources to the north and was rewarded as such.

      The year of 456
      The present Seven Swordsmen of the Mist were defeated by Sahoru Hon. This resulted in the deaths of the majority, causing the largest upset in the Swordsmen roster since its formation over three decades ago. Though Sahoru died in the process, the Swordsmen did not fully recover until after the First Shinobi World War had already started.

      The year of 457
      The First Shinobi World War had begun. Though Kirigakure was the last to officially join the conflict, its network of spies and assassins had long operated on foreign soil. The military campaign, headed jointly by both an aged Otokano and Shouji, focused its effort on hitting the Land of Fire hard and fast, quickly pushing into Fire territory.

      The year of 461
      Otokano is captured and killed by Jinkama Moto. The battle that this occurred in was the first of many in a series of comeback victories from Konohagakure, pushing Kirigakure forces out of the Land of Fire and back into the Land of Water.

      The year of 462
      Shouji is killed in battle, also by Jinkama Moto. Without having appointed a successor, the title of Mizukage fell to his military advisor Kang Nomonoto. The final battle of the First Shinobi World War occurred less than five kilometers from Kirigakure itself, where Konoha forces found they could not push any farther. Rather than be starved out, Kang's first act as Third Mizukage was to sign a treaty with Jinkama Moto and thereby end the war.

      The year of 463
      After paying war reparation's for the property damaged in the Land of Fire, Kirigakure found itself in a poor economical state. As well, Kang proved himself to be rather corrupt, despite first impressions. After levying heavy taxes on the population and enforcing other controlling policies, the Third Mizukage cracked down on foreigners living in the village and surrounding areas. The expulsion of foreign civilians was rather violent and most often resulted in civilian casualties. This sparked the beginning of an age of blood in Kirigakure.

      The year of 465
      Kang Nomonoto is assassinated by Liaru Hotari, on behalf of Soru Deshuga. His progressively bloody reign was cut short and his rival Fumiyo Nagano was elected Fourth Mizukage by the Elder Council. However, Fumiyo only made minor changes to his predecessor's policies, so as to fit his own needs. Though his rule was less bloody, it was equally corrupt and equally intolerant.

      The year of 468
      A brief civil war broke out in Kirigakure. Headed by a group of progressive jonin, an attempt to overthrow Fumiyo was made. The fighting across Kirigakure lasted only two days before being put down by the Seven Swordsmen of the Mist, the ANBU, and the Suzu clan. Every known rebel was killed on the spot or publicly executed.

      The year of 470
      The collapse of the influential and infamous Suzu clan. After an opportunity to spur them on was taken by Fumiyo, the violence escalated on its own and consumed the entirety of the clan. Even those abroad returned home to settle the differences. The entire clan was decimated, leaving only four survivors which were immediately rounded up. Three were executed, and the remaining Suzu, Rika, escaped and was branded as a genocidal traitor. With the Suzu clan gone, Fumiyo had less to oppose him and more control. The ANBU had basically become his own personal secret police, and the Swordsmen were now his personal hitmen. Another uprising began later that year, but was put down in less than an hour this time.

      The year of 474
      The return of Rika Suzu brought Fumiyo Nagano to his death and the Swordsmen of the Mist to their knees. After convincing the Elder Council that she could lead Kirigakure far better than her predecessors, she was given the title of the Fifth Mizukage. Rika systematically went back and eliminated most every policy put in place over the past twelve years, including curfews, freedoms, and trade restrictions. Immediately, the population of Kirigakure had a higher opinion of her as compared to the previous Mizukage, though her background as an assassin and participation in genocide still lays in the back of the minds of a few. For the first time in over a decade, Kirigakure accepted immigrants into the village.

      The year of 476
      There has been several signs of uprising unrest within the Land of Water as well the outbreak of the Six Tails, which has caused somewhat harm to Kirigakure. Next, there is also a revolution that has moved the preparation stage and is currently being led by Mika Hayashi.

      Akinian/Imperial Military Uniform (open)




      • The Akinian shinobi military supports the headband where not the crest is shown of the individual villages, which are now most often the capital of a province in the Empire. Instead it shows the crest of a sun, much as this example.

        The regular forces also have a unified design of their jacket. The ANBU follow the traditional Konohagakure style, but there are several specialised units that have a different uniform. These are often small sized units that have been either organised or been given permission as support from the Akinian military to function - the persons being the First Major General or the Empress/Emperor.

        The flak jacket of the regular forces - color is dark green :
        [​IMG]
        *Once more thanks to RoranHawkins for drawing this.

        Several features :
        - Even though a nin from Ame and Konoha - or from any province of the Empire - wear the same jacket, you can see and spot that one if from Ame by seeing the old Ame headband symbol on the lower part of the jacket.
        - The neck guard and shoulder pads are detachable. This means that you could potentially still wear any more reinforced/sturdier shoulder pads (as some characters do) with the jacket. And if you don't like your neck to be guarded against any foes that want to stab or hack at it, then you can remove the neck guard.
        - The material of the jacket is the same as the previous models, meaning optimal protection without hindering the mobility of the wearer.
        - In some areas, the uniform has been used in combination with means of operation and surroundings. Ame-nin, for example, will still wear rain coats over their jackets, due to the climate/weather.

        Most often Shinobi wear their flak jacket with the respective straps of their shinobi ranks (chuunin etc) over some armour when being assigned to the regular military as soldiers or leading officials. Some even temporality abandons their flak jackets for more protective armour during times of war.


      • The regular soldiers of the Imperial army follow a unified armour/uniform depending on their speciality. Armour is being mass produced by some centres in big cities, being of good quality and given to soldiers and offered to shinobi alike. One has to notice that while the armour that the soldiers are granted by the state is in a way free, they have to earn it. The first two years, a soldier/shinobi will earn only half their wage to pay the armour and equipment back. The colours of the clothing and padding are made dark blue, resembling the colour of the Homura dynasty. Some units and brigades do have permission from the First Major General to adopt one or two tweaks to the colouring, to resemble the colouring of their clan or province of origin.

        The majority wears steel armour that is laquered dark brown. Many wear also chainmail underneath it, together with a gambeson jacket and pants. The armour functions in a similar fashion as Karuta armour.

        Karuta armor is a form of lightweight, folding armor known as "tatami". The "karuta" are small square or rectangle plates of iron or leather connected to each other by kusari (chain mail) or laced to each other, with the plates sewn to a cloth backing, individual karuta armour plates could also be sewn directly to a cloth backing without being connected to each other.

        Difference between a kage and governor in the Empire :
        The main difference is that a kage is being a person who has next to governor the province in the name of the Emperor/Empress that they are required to also have some military knowledge and experience. Next to tasks as being a governor, they are ought to be capable commanders and lead, if deemed capable, troops in order to defend the borders of their own province as that those they are assigned to watch over.

        The position of a governor and kage are chosen by the ruling person of the Empire, but this usually goes with advice from the province's higher up.


        Stats ;
        * Diplomatic strength : 8/10
        * Economic strength : 8/10
        * Stability : 7/10
        * Army size and strength (without garrisons to occupy fortifications): a size of around 100.000 troops in divisions that can be mobilised for war. The military are currently composed out of 4 divisions and follows the Imperial army reformation.

        The military of the Akinian realm focus on a lot of variations. Their main focus is their heavy infantry, that is equipped with long oval shields, spears and side-arms. Wearing protective gear, their heavy infantry can form a formidable defensive or offensive unit. Capable of fielding several specialised units that hail from various clans and regions, that aid to the combat strength of an Akinian army, they are a force to reckon with on the battlefields. Their cavalry is often a mix of the hit and run cavalry, using several samurai traditions, as more lance and shock cavalry.
        Though having a basic understanding of naval warfare, the Akinian Empire isn't even near on being par with the Kirigakure navy. The main purpose of the Akinian navy is to fend off pirates and securing trade routs as to escort transport ships. Their siege warfare is rather good, utilising siege equipment on battlefields as well in order to deliver devastating attacks.

          Colonel of the 3rd Brigade, Harumi Uchiha
          The medium infantry battalion, the Crimson Hunters is a mixed force of skirmishers who perform scouting and screening operations while their flexible infantry either supports other units or able to hold and maintain for some time their ground against an enemy opposition.

          Heavy cavalry unit, the Tiger Claws are like any of the Agema brigade an elite unit. They are a heavy melee cavalry force that relies on their vicious charges into the enemy lines and hacking their way to victory or death. With being armoured as the traditional samurai, they dread fear among their enemies with their presence on the battlefield. Unlike the Sworn Lancers and Swords, the Tiger's Claw is a bit lighter when it comes to the armour. A detachment of the force does operate as skirmishing cavalry - wielding bows instead of lances.

          Medium infantry unit, the Soaring Blades is a unit composed of heavy skirmishers capable of acting as medium infantry. These men can scout, screen and harass like other skirmishers but when required they can hold their ground through cunning and stubborn defiance. Their primary weapons are bows, although all of the men are very adept at handling their personal choice of sidearms, most often katana, axes or maces. Accompanying the main body of heavy skirmishers is a small group of naginata-wielding men in slightly heavier armour to form the frontline in a hand-to-hand.

It features full body armour with protective shoulder, forearm and shin protectors and guards. The armour is made of good quality steel and the balance spreads the weight of the armour over the body, allowing the person wearing it to be less obstructed by the weight the armor can impose on the user. Most members of the Sworn Sword cover the lower part of their face with a dark blue scarf. The left armguard is made out of 'Dragon Steel', able to guard and protect the wearer slightly better against some forms of ninjutsu. As many members of the Sworn Swords use the shield. Three out of the five companies that form the field force of the Sworn Swords on foot are focused on melee while the remaining two out of five are focused on archery.

          Infantry -

          1x Major :
          Eòin Cho, born 2 / 7 / 434, near the Keep of Dayi

          History :
          Eóin was born in the southern part of the Fire Province, 42 years ago. Born as a Cho, he learned and was raised in the mannerism of his clan. Back then the clan wasn't as united as today, which made him decide to not pick up the trade of his parents - who both owned a diary farm, producing and selling cheese and leather. Instead, Eóin decided to head out to join the army at the age of fourteen. Trained for four rigorous years, he started as a soldier. During his career, he fought against the likes of bandits and insurgents as rebels. In the Great War, he mostly fought against the forces of the Earth country and was also assigned to join the invasion force in the Water country. After the Great War ended, Eóin was 30-year-olds. Deciding to take it a few years easier as he had gotten the promotion to Lieutenant, Eóin managed to get married and moved to Keishi. However with the rise of the Fire Union, Eóin became restless. While he was content with his life and managed to live on some of the savings of his career, he couldn't just sit still. With more development happening around him, he decided to take up the sword again. It was after all he knew in his life. And though humble, he is a master in wielding the spear and sword with a shield.

          Appearance :
          [​IMG]
          Personality :
          Eóin is a patient man, having learned the virtue quite well in his advanced age. Where he is quite confident in his capabilities to lead and train others into battle as well holding his own, even against experienced shinobi, Eóin isn't a man of bragging. Following the rule of saying only when he feels there is something he needs to say, many consider the man broody and grim. Which is further reinforced in the fact that the man's facial expression seems to be locked in a grim expression?
          Other information :
          - Favourite food includes onions
          - Doesn't like to speak about his family ( optional to try to discover this over the course of the IC)
          - Often curses softly in Chonobi. Seems to sound more proud when he is speaking the language.
          - Has like the majority of the civilians and military a (slight) dislike for ninjutsu use. Even while he has mastered some basics of chakra flow to defend himself against shinobi.
          - With his experience has managed to learn how to live off the land. His years of experience and training also have hardened him for the grim reality of the world and what war might bring upon people.

          Tsuchida Iwane, born 3rd / 4th / 445

          History :
          Born in the western part of the Fire province of the now formed Empire of Akino, Tsuchida didn't have much of an easy life. Born in a large family on a farmstead, he didn't learn how to read or had much time to play. Like many of his peers on the countryside, it was working from a young age to help to farm and take care of the small herd of animals - mostly sheep, but with a few goats. Dreaming as many others of his age, Tsuchida wanted a life of adventure. To make his name big and earn glory. His 'lucky' chance came when he reached the age of fifteen. With the Great War boiling up, Tsuchida enlisted in the army with most of his brothers. Trained in becoming an archer, the excited teen, however, would survive the war with learning that war is a cruel mistress. Losing most of his siblings and his parents - due to a raid by forces of the Wind country - Tsuchida, however, remained in the army. Climbing to the ranks of Lieutenant, his men have learned him for how excited he carries himself over. Yet nobody that has served under his service dare to joke about it...
          Appearance :

          Personality :
          Tsuchida is often heard speaking with many could describe as a cheerful and excited tone. He is quite the optimist, though his humour isn't likely going to be one everybody's likes. Even in the hour of the wolf not many have seen him get rid of the small playful grin on his lips. While he doesn't look like it or seem to give that impression, Tsuchida is quite the patient and obedient person. Making sure that the orders and plans are followed, his cheerful attitude can quickly turn when there are people who don't value loyalty and discipline as much as he does.
          Other notes :
          - Scars : Has a few on his right arm, his right shoulder and a small one on his collarbone.
          - Seems to favour roasted pork and can't stop complaining about beans.
          - Is highly skilled in wielding polearms and seems to have an excellent stamina. Often mocking others when he spots them being exhausted or demoralised by long marches. His skill and strength in close quarters aren't the best, but he seems to be on par with most. His favourite secondary weapon is a long mace. Called Crash.
          - Is knowledgeable about how to live off on the land. Though he often has more anecdotes about sheep and dark humour about the population in the Wind country than really well constructed advise and tips.

          'Foot Companions'
          - "Never Back Down"-
          Colonel of the 13th Brigade, Koike Hon (Temp)
          Heavy infantry unit, the Foot Companions is a 'specialised' troop found in the Akinian military. Composed out Hons and Sarutobi, the Companions are geared in the style of the Hon clan - Carrying large round quality steel shields and armed with spears and a side-arm, these troops are quite armoured heavily as well. Three of the five companies are soldiers capable of performing various defensive and offensive tactics. One of their most renown is their 'turtle walk' tactic in which they use to walk through a hail of missiles to get close and personal with their enemies.
          The battalion provides two companies of Sarutobi and Hon fight in troops using longbows. With the longbows they provide cover-fire and screening operations for the other battalions in the brigade.
          They do have a mix reputation for the ruthless soldiers and warriors in their ranks next to be completely filled up with Hon and Sarutobi. Not to mention that some of their songs have irked members of other brigades.

          Marching Song#1

          The wind may blaw, the cock may craw
          The rain may rain, and the snaw may snaw
          But ye willnae frighten the Thirteen
          The stoutest men in the army

          Behold, I am a soldier bold, I'm only twenty-five years old
          A finer warrior ne'er was seen from Icla to Magnhild Green
          When I was young, my faither said he'd put me tae a decent trade
          But I didnae like the work at a' - I went and I joined the Thirteen

          The sergeant who enlisted me slaps my back and then says he
          A man like you so big and tall could ne'er be killed by an arrow
          And the colonel then when he cam' roon', he looks me up, he looks me doon
          And then said he, I'll take a guess - you must be the monster causing stress

          At our last battle across the sea the general he sent after me
          When I got there wi' my big spear the battle was as good as won.
          For the enemy a' ran awa' when they caught sight o' Big Wolf
          A man like me so big and neat, ye ken yersel' can never be beat.

          The lord then held a grand review, we numbered a thousand and sixty-two
          A' the Thirteen cam' marchin' past and Big Wolf cam' marchin' last
          A' the royal party grabbed their sticks an' they a' began tae stretch their necks
          Said the lord tae the Colonel, Upon my soul, I thought that man was a banner pole



          Drinking Song#1

          In the boozer
          you’re a loser
          if the dice you’re shaking.
          You’ll get hurt
          and lose your shirt,
          sit there cold and quaking.
          Lady Luck, your gifts are bad,
          you trick us, then you make us mad,
          make us gamble, make us fight,
          and sit out in the cold all night.


          ‘Brrr!’ The naked loser moans,
          when he’s cold and left alone,
          shakes and shivers as he groans:
          ‘I wish I could be
          asleep under a tree
          With a hot sunshine warming my bones.’


          But now let’s roll the dice again
          and win some drinking money!
          Who thinks about November’s rain
          while it’s still warm and sunny?




          Drinking Song#2

          There were a dozen virgins
          Hanta, Nimatsu and Hyuuga's
          We took them for some pickn'
          But all we got were wanks.
          *Chorus=
          *Oh, we are the Empress warriors.*
          *Akino, victorious*
          *We'll pummel your asses*
          *And ravage your
          lasses*
          *And do it all again.*


          The prettiest of the virgins
          She was so fair and sweet.
          I told her I'd an organ
          Which made her skip some heartbeats.
          *Chorus*
          The oldest of the virgins
          She was an experienced lass.
          I showed her my mighty weapon
          And she showed me her ass.
          *Chorus*
          The fattest of the virgins
          We took her for an Akimichi.
          I gave her all me codpiece
          She still wanted more.
          *Chorus*
          Her sister was from Keishi
          She cost me 20 coins.
          She showed there were more ways
          Then one to show me oats.
          *Chorus*
          Her mother wasn't from Keishi
          And she was very hot.
          It took a whole damn iceberg
          To cool her burning off.
          *Chorus*


          Marching song#2

          I am a soldier on the march,I’m a killer, with a need to bleed you when the light goes green.
          Best believe, I’m in a zone to be, from my Yin to my Yang to my Yang Tze

          I've got the reach and teeth of a wolf, with a need to bleed you when the light goes green.
          Best believe, I’m in a zone to be,
          from my Yin to my Yang to my Yang Tze
          Put a grin on my chin when you come to me,
          ‘cuz I’ll win, I’m one-of-a-kind and I’ll bring death,
          to the place you’re about to be: another river of blood runnin’ under my feet

          Forged in a fire lit long ago, stand next to me, you’ll never stand alone,
          I’m last to leave, but the first to go, Thirteen is the only way I know.
          I feed on the fear of the devil inside of the enemy faces in my sight.
          Aim with the hand, shoot with the mind, kill with a heart like arctic ice.

          *I am a Devil-Dog I’m marching on, I am a warrior and this is my song*

          I bask in the glow of the rising war, lay waste to the ground of an enemy shore,
          wade through the blood spilt on the floor, and if another one stands I’ll kill some more
          Steel in the breach and a fire in me like a cigarette thrown to gasoline,
          if death don’t bring you fear then death ain’t brought by no Chonobi.
          Come to the nightmare, come to me, deep down in the dark where the devil be
          in the maw with the jaws and the razor teeth, where the brimstone burns and the angel weeps
          call to the gods if I cross your path and my silhouette hangs like a body bag
          hope is a moment now long past, the shadow of death is the one I cast.

          *I am a Devil-Dog I’m marching on, I am a warrior and this is my song
          Hell has no demon I won’t overcome, I am a warrior and this is my song*

          Now, I live lean and I mean to inflict the grief, and the least of me is still out of your reach,
          the wolf gonna do the deed, until the river runs dry and my last breath leaves.
          Chin in the air with a head held high, I’ll stand in the path of the enemy line,
          feel no fear, know my pride: for ancestors and Country I’ll end your life

          *I am a Devil-Dog I’m marching on, I am a warrior and this is my song
          Hell has no demon I won’t overcome, I am a warrior and this is my song
          I made the devil himself turn and run, I am a warrior and this is my song
          Into the fire I will keep marchin’ on, HI HA, Thirteen, get some!*

Like most infantry units, the infantry part has each member sport a large oval shield, spear and a side arm. Because they are stationed in the badlands of the Rain province, the skirmishers are having often the slinger and javelin as the weapon of choice as bows don't operate well in the rain.

          The Guardians are a specialised unit within the Imperial military. They are however not part of the Divisions as the special unit has a maximum limit of a company, thus a maximum of 144 members. This company is also being used in peace times, unlike the Imperial Divisions who are mustered at times of war, conflict or when being summoned when the need is there. The members are often being picked out as the best or most reliable members of the Protectors.

          In times of conflict, the Guardians are often being sent to reinforce a region. While they are free to act somewhat independent from the other Regular Forces, they follow the same regulations. This means that they aren't free to disturb the activities of the Imperial Divisions and ought to respect those of higher rank.

          Current characters that serve in the special company, alongside NPC's :
          - Saki Yamanaka
          - Hideki Hyuuga




        Other :
        Within Konohagakure, there has been a second and inner wall constructed. This wall is made to separate the Merchant district, the district right in front of the Main Gate, from the rest of Konohagakure. At this inner wall, there have been made check points and some smaller variants of barriers and seals in order to try to prevent anybody from simply scaling or digging underneath the wall. In order to get from the Merchant district to the inner districts of Konohagakure, one needs to validate that they are born civilians or granted rights to enter the inner section of Konohagakure.

        This is being checked by blood. Every civilian of Konohagakure (and every shinobi) needs to donate a bit of blood in order for those who watch over the security within Konohagakure. By the blood, the chakra signature of the person can be traced and matched with anybody that has been registered as a civilian or person permitted to enter the inner section of Konohagakure. The blood of the active shinobi is being taken and used in order to check the current state of the army as well to decrease the capabilities of offensive intelligence gathering from rivals.

        The blood and such information is being stored underground, beneath the Intelligence headquarters.

        The Empire of Akino (Akinian Empire)

        After the Fire Daimyo appointed Kiyomi Sato-Hon as his successor, the dynasty of the Daimyo would thus merge with the future Hokage. Due that some changes happened. With the oaths of the kages of the vassal/client states of the Fire Union, they were now bound to either following their own daimyo or that of the new reformed Empire. This was easily solved, due the favour of following the new government and their dynasty. With that, the new head of the state would be either an Emperor or Empresses while also being merged with the station of Hokage. This reformation has as effect that the prior client states have been integrated as provinces of the newly formed Empire of Akino. And that the station of daimyo and Hokage has been melted into one as the Emperor/Empress.

        Fire Union
        Before the Imperial reformation.

        Fire Union (open)
        The Fire Union is a unique diplomatic organisation with Konohagakure, thus the Hokage, at its top. It has been devised by the Yondaime Hokage's assistant, Meisa Ichi, who proposed the idea. After some time, they managed to convince most of the surrounding countries to join this union. Each vassal permits Konohagakure forces to establish bases and such within their own ground, as sending their own recruits (Genins and such) to secret outposts near their border with the Fire Country, in order to keep a standby force. Trained by mostly Konoha-nin, the bond between the Fire nation and the members of the Fire union are growing. They are still much like vassals, bound by oath to follow the will and order of the Hokage.



        Imperial Army(Reformed Army standard) (open)

        The Imperial army of the is being organised in four divisions. A division is usually made up around the number of 1200 to 1500 soldiers. The bulk of it being formed by chuunin. They also wear distinctions with their flak jacket, to show which rank and part of division and team they are in.

        (Flak Jacket for chuunin ranked nin.)
        (Flack jacket for specialized jounin)
        (Flak Jacket for full fledged Jounin)

        Next to that, those who are promoted to be chuunin, specialised jounin and jounin are required to follow classes on warfare and leadership at the War Academy (each of course following a course at their given rank. This means that a chuunin will simply learn the basics of the tasks and requirements of a sergeant, which is totally different from what a jounin must learn). There they will be taught the basics of warfare and leadership. Next to what their role in a division will be. This is in order to increase the organisation of the Fire Union forces as they will be better organised and fit for warfare.

        How a division is formed and made up from :
        A division is made up from sergeant to brigade general ;

        Squads, which are led by a sergeant and at the size of a normal team. (5 people in total)
        Role of the Sergeant :
        The sergeant is the person that helps leading the squad in a formation. These people holding these ranks are more often of a senior rank, corresponding roughly to a platoon second-in-command.




        Platoons, which are 5 squads, led by a lieutenant. (25 troops in total)

        Role of the Lieutenant:
        The lieutenant is the person that help keep order int the company. Together with two to three other lieutenants, they guide a company and in the absence of the captain, they shout orders. If a captain/major can't perform the task of carrying the standard or there isn't simply one around, then it is up to a lieutenant to carry this duty out.




        Companies, which are composed out of 10 platoons. They are led by a captain/major. During large scaled battlefields, most formations are moving into company sized groups. (250 troops in total.)

        Role of the Captain/major:
        The captain is the person that help spread the orders of the colonel . With the other captains, they are positioned over the battalion, one of the captain/major has the task to carry the standard of the battalion. If the standard bearer falls, then it is up to another captain/major to carry the standard. If there is no captain/major available for any apparent reason, this duty befalls a lieutenant or sergeant. Captain earn one and a half times the basic wage somebody in the division system earns.




        Battalion, are made up from 5 companies and are led by a colonel.(1250 troops in total)
        Each Brigade has its own number, which most have taken to hold dear. This has become somewhat of a competitive nature as some soldiers and shinobi hold their own brigade to be superior than that of another.

        Role of the Colonels:
        The colonel is responsible for leading a battalion. They are the ones who 'customize' the battalion (Permission is needed from the leader of the First Division ), design a 'nickname' for their battalion as well several traditions that occur into the battalions. Though the regulations of the Imperial force are above those traditions and one has to think about an own motto or saying or such small stuff. Colonels also receive double the wage somebody in the division system earns.

        - Aid - :
        The position of Aid is close to that of a squire to a knight. Aids are often low ranked military personnel that are assigned to help the colonel with sending messages, cleaning their weapons and gear as well learning from the colonel about leading. While Aids have no formal authority, they are often regarded as the 'second-voice' of the colonel that they serve. Usually, Aids serve a colonel for a period of five years, after which they become captains themselves. They do have also a ceremonial duty to be present near the colonel that they serve during ceremonial events.



        Brigade, are made up from 5 battalions. A brigade is being led by a brigade general (6.250 troops in total.)

        Role of the Brigade General:
        The Brigade General is most often the leading person of a moving Imperial army. They come up with the major tactics prior an engagement and make sure that the colonels understand what the main course of actions details. These are often very experienced or educated people who have earned the rank with merit. They earn three times the basic wage. If an army is send out with more than one Brigade General being present, it is often up to general that is being the most respected and loved by his/her troops to lead the others in battle. The other Brigade General(s) will then fill in as the second-in-command of the respective leading general.




        And four form one division, which is thus composed out of around, meaning that a regular division is made up by 20.000 troops in total. A division is led by an major general. However, the rank of major general isn't in the top of the village hierarchy like the department commanders. This means that the major generals are still under the command of the Jounin commander.

        A chuunin can obtain the rank of an sergeant till captain ranked, while a specialised jounin can go from an lieutenant to a captain major. Jounin often start from captain majors and can work their way up to become appointed as brigade generals. An ANBU is given however more often the rank that fits them at best, making them often fill up roles that suit them at best. The positions of a major general are been given on merit and judgement of the ruler or his/her advisers.

        Total numbers :
        4 divisions,
        20 brigades,
        120 battalions,
        600 companies,
        3.600 platoons
        10.800 squads.

      The military of Kumogakure is most consisting out medium infantry. Infantry that is decently equipped to have some moderate protection to remain mobile and fast. They don't really specialise in one type of unit, fielding decent infantry, skirmishers and some good cavalry. They value mobility and offensive tactics more than defensive ones. Their navy is decent, though their forte are siege equipment. Kumogakure has and still is researching new ways to bring devastation upon enemy fortifications. From their 'airships' to long range ballista, they both excel in defending a fortification location as laying siege to one.

      Other :
      The Lighting country and its vassals (The Cloud) have a special civilian system. Everybody that is been born in the Lightning country or been accepted as civilian (After several tests and a good record, which doesn't have to be a military one) will need to wear a tag around their neck. One similar to a dog tag. On this tag, there will be several sequences of numbers being scripted on. These numbers will show to an administrative office, run by civilians as the Police Force where a person was born in the country, on which date and other information. With these tags, it is easier to follow a person as to draft up levies in times of need. Another benefit of the system is that it allows the Cloud to gain a small defence against intelligence gathering from other nations.
      Military Branches (open)

      Police Corps

      The regular Kumogakure military is being branched in three factions. The Police Corps, which are under the leadership of the Guard Commander. The police corps are shinobi who are stationed and being lead to safeguard the safety of the civilians and public order within the Cloud. They are able to be used as regular forces, but their main task is to perform to ensure that unrest and riots are being controlled. They are the smallest branch.
      Black Guard

      The corps that is more stationed at the borders and are stationed with the orders of maintaining a strict overview of who enters the countries of the Cloud and what their purpose may be. The members of the Black Guard were first a small task force at the mountainous regions between the Frost and Lightning Country, but due their excellence service have they been formed into a corps. Now at most borders, the Black Guard is seen as the force that is required to guard the Cloud against the first strikes of the enemy. This means countering sabotage and stealth operations from any potential neighbour near the border regions.

      Storm Vanguard
      The corps that is being regarded as the regular troop branch. Thus the majority of the shinobi in service of the Cloud.

      The military of Kirigakure is mainly consisted of light infantry. While some may make jokes, no one in particular, that it’s because Kirigakure is poor and can’t afford all the equipment that’d make a military heavy infantry…well, that’s only part of the reason, so take that! But also because Kirigakure is maritime based, and adding heavy to water does not equate to good things. Therefore you can find most troops of Kirigakure wearing relatively light armor, enough to provide sufficient protection nonetheless, while remaining fast and mobile. In hand is usually weaponry with the intent of keeping the enemy at bay, or pushing them back, such as spears, though it isn’t uncommon to see troops wielding swords as well. With the recent re-shaping of the military, value is being placed on defensive tactics rather than offensive, as it would be foolish to follow in past footsteps equaling to failure. The end goal now is survival, not conquest nor pride. The navy of Kirigakure is simply their best feature and continues to build each day. No other western nation seems to rival or even come close. Simply put, whatever they can do, one can expect Kirigakure to do it as well, and more efficiently.

    Character Creation

    The Ranking System,
    Solid Clone rule


    Short :
    This is both to make it clear what is need to be done in order to be promoted as well to prevent in a better way characters that are OP for their class. Do keep in mind that we are going to use the new promotion (through a kage) with the policy of that the active and hard working people are getting rewarded.


    *For now the A and S ranks are still going to be more personally reviewed from how we used to review CS's. Do keep in mind that it doesn't allow these ranks to be much stronger in theory. They will still be bound to what the majority of the GM team deems reasonable!

    - The traits and skills are more of a guideline as they can be improved. Don't go overboard with them and keep them more focused on the current rank your character has. This doesn't mean however that Jounin can be good and masters in everything. BALANCE OUT.*

    Genin (open)

    D ranked - Genin
    Genin (下忍; Literally meaning "low ninja", Meaning (Viz) "junior ninja") are the lowest level of ninja and also the ones that display the most difference in power. When they become genin, ninja start to do their bit for their village's economy – being sent on missions that the village gets paid for. They are typically sent either on D-rank missions, which are almost entirely risk-free jobs of manual labour, or, rarely, on C-rank missions, which are a cut above that and begin to verge on real "ninja" work that have a very low possibility of risk to the ninja involved. However, they can be conscripted as part of the war potential in times of emergency, such as was the case as in the First Shinobi World War.

    Starting Genins often know around six jutsu (2 C ranked and 4 D ranked at max) and just one element (unless they have KG, but remember that a KG can limit your growth!). The traits and skills of a genin are often low, seeing they need to train and/or begin their career as a true ninja.


    Limit : 3 good traits at start ( Special - Very high - High - Very good- Good - average - bad - worse etc.)
    Limit techs : No B or higher ranked techniques. A total of 8 combat techniques would be enough. Maybe a limit of 2 non combat and 1 clone technique at it. (Still making a total of 11.)

    Promote? Chuunin Exam or doing enough number of missions that the Kage is willing to promote it. This involves the Kage to ask it from the GM's and if the majority agrees, the promotion will happen.
    Chuunin (open)

    C ranked - Chuunin
    Chūnin (中忍; Literally meaning "Middle Ninja", Meaning (Viz) "Journeyman Ninja") are ninja who are qualified to guide other ninja and lead missions. Chūnin have reached a level of maturity and ability that primarily consists of leadership skills and tactical prowess. Genin who do not have the skills to become chūnin are weeded out in the chūnin exams. To become a chūnin, a genin participates in a large examination, known as the "Chūnin Exams" or else have completed a good number of missions to be granted a promotion for good service by their leader.

    Chuunins are more experienced and based on their performance and amount of training, can have more jutsu, traits and skills. Some chuunins who train a lot or having been doing a lot of missions, gaining enough experience, have gained a second Nature Element.


    There are two differences in Chuunin. Experienced and non experienced chuunins.

    Non-experienced chuunin ;
    - No option yet for non KG-less characters to develop a secondary nature chakra. (the limit for dojutsu characters is either 2 or 3. We need to also think about that, to decide it once and for all)
    - A limit of 10 combat techniques, still none higher than B ranked.

    Promote ? : Train and do missions.

    Experienced chuunin :

    -Non elemental-KG users can develop one more chakra nature. However as a secondary nature, it will take work and training to ''stabilize'' it. Meaning they can't use better than C ranked techniques for the secondary nature.
    - A limit of around 15 combat techniques, only two of B ranked techniques.


    Promote ? To become a Tobestu Jounin, one has to be an experienced chuunin. Promotions to become a specialized jounin vary, often depending on the character and why the leaders deem that they deserve the rank.
    Specialized Jounin (open)

    B ranked - Tokubetsu Jōnin
    okubetsu Jōnin (特別上忍, Tokubetsu Jōnin; English TV "Special Jōnin"; Literally meaning "Special High Ninja"; sometimes known as Tokujō for short) are ninja who, rather than all-around jōnin training, have jōnin-level ability in a specific area or skill, much like warrant officers in real-world military. They are elite specialists in their areas and are often assigned as subordinates to regular jōnin when their services are needed.

    Tobestu Jounin have their field where they are true experts, like on the same level as most Jounin. They often have good traits and some have even three elemental chakra natures, together with strong jutsu.

    -Non elemental-KG users can develop one more chakra nature. However as a third nature, it will take work and training to ''stabilize'' it. Meaning they can't use better than C ranked techniques for third nature. However, they will not go higher as C ranked, while if the user has done enough training and put enough effort in it, they can put the limit of their secondary techniques that they can have a limit of 3 B ranked techniques.

    - A limit of around 20 combat techniques, only three A ranked techniques.

    Clone limitation ;

    Everybody can learn to make a clone technique, but there is now a limitation on how it can be used, in order to prevent abuse of it to a good extent. For that reason, the new system will support a new way how we can determine on how good one can use a clone technique, such as shadow clone technique.

    The skill of the use is based both on rank, chakra and experience (which is often linear with rank). This means that most genin can't make more than one shadow/elemental clone, while if they train their chakra control, gain experience and rank up that they can extend their control. However, due the difference in characters abilities and preferences. However there will be a more stern watch over the use of solid clone techniques!

    It is thus safe to follow this suggestion ;

    Genins : Max forming of solid clones are : 2
    Chuunin : Max forming of solid clones are : 3~4
    Higher ranked are often specialized in several fields and have a bigger diversity of chakra control. Consult the GM team in order to see what the result will be. Know that we can't straighten this out and thus have to discuss this with the majority of the team.

    Clans and organizations creation


    • Clans and organizations.

      [​IMG]

      Groups like clans and organizations can have detailed information that can be treated as a CS. This means that you sometimes do need to request a person if you may create a CS and be part of the clan or organization. Though with the latter, you can also attempt do that through IC/story wise. Please do note that a clan and or organization sheet will need to be reviewed, as like with a character sheet. Once accepted, it can be placed in the accepted dump thread.



    • Code:

    Player made places

    [​IMG]

    This section is about places that are designed by the players, that are in the world of New Generations. These places are either important to some plot, characters or for other uses. Keep in mind that those who create these places are also in kind of control of them. Don't simply just barge into them or what so ever, as they are still some kind of work of the players who designed these places. In a way, these places are much like NPC's.

    To create a place, simply fill in the underlying sheet and post it for a review in this thread.

    These are for outside a city.
    Code:
    [i][b]Name:[/b][/i]
    (Name of the place)
    [i][b]Location:[/b][/i]
    (Where is the location? Mind to give a good description of where the place is or how it can be found.)

    Information Hub


    This section provides some extra insight and information on the RP's setting and lore, Here information is stored and often updated to give the reader and players of the RP a good insight on some matters. Be careful as most of the information that is being shared here isn't that widespread in the IC/story. That means that if there is any mentioning that this or that is rare or not well known that you can assume that there aren't many books that can provide an answer.








    • The technology in canon Naruto is quite confusing and seeing as this is an Alternative Universe RP with its foundation based on the Naruto, canon you can find some similarities. On the ground of technology, we try to be less confusing and for that reason you'll see less modern or Industrial technology than you can find in the canon.

      It is safe to say that there won't be much electric hardware or advanced technology. Instead of making a list of available items it is safe to assume that the technology is based on 1600-1650 technology. In the major cities there is some more advanced technology - such as electricity - but this is quite expensive and used more often to improve living conditions in general or can only be afforded by the rich. Hospitals in capitals and large important cities use electricity to power and make some of their medical hardware work - but this material isn't much more than machinery that can help the hospital personnel stabilise and maintain a stable situation for their patients. For surgery and aid, they use medical ninjutsu or knowledge that they have on the human body to perform surgeries. Think for example one heart rate monitors.

      For more recreational purposes, yes, there are televisions. These take, however, a lot of electricity to work and there isn't much to see on them simply because there aren't many people who own a television and there is a rather low request for them. You can expect literally little to watch - most likely just one channel which is what the local broadcast can provide (so have fun watching the same thing over and over again).
      Radio communication is developed and used, but mostly by the military. There aren't many recreative radio channels - likely one or two in the large cities - and radio hardware is quite expensive to just buy for recreation.

      There is also technology that allows the build of airships. One might wonder why we have airships and not easier transport, such as steamboats or even cars? The answer is that the source that drives the airships is rumoured to be chakra and currently the only nation fielding airships is the Lightning country, who uses them as military hardware instead of civilian transports. They keep the technology of airships quite secret and so far any attempt at trying to steal the driving technology has resulted in nothing but failure - the personnel is trained to deal with situations where they might need to deal with disabling and preventing others from reverse engeering the technology that make the airships funtion. It isn't rare that much of the hardware for the airships is rigged to deal with the prospect of being stolen - requiring seals or certain methods to work.



    • Information is often written down in scrolls, codex, manuals and books. But knowledge can be dangerous. Not every source of information is useful, as it's not a rare or strange thing to see facts, recipes or certain information in sources being twisted. Either to mislead those who the author doesn't wish to learn the knowledge in his or her book, scroll or codex. Or to bring harm on them on purpose, misleading them to destroy themselves.

      While we could make a list of books that have been around, it's easier to notify you which subjects haven't been written about. Either because it hasn't caught major interest or has been kept for a good reason away from any papyrus.
      Information that is, however, used without being mentioned or able to be learned through books, scrolls and such are taught orally and practice.



      - Gentle Fist Style
      - Chonobi language
      - Hidden techniques
      - Bijuu names and accurate details, most of the information is tales, myths and legends about them.
      - Hidden techniques.
      - Kinjutsu labeled techniques - this is an oddball. Kinjutsu is sometimes stored in documents and scrolls, but it is safe to assume that getting your hands on such information won't be without any risk if discovered.
      • [​IMG]

        (Godai for short)
        = Made and designed by Fieryfly and Gerontis =




        Short notice :

        Godai is based off on Pro-Bending, shaped to fit in the alternative universe of the RP that has and follows the foundations of the Naruto universe. So don't expect to see any form of Avatar bending. Instead we use the Pro-Bending sport in a more Naruto-friendly universe style.




        Introduction :

        While there is a general distrust among the majority of the populations, there are only a few who protest against seeing shinobi battling it out with ninjutsu to claim fame and prizes (money) in the arenas designed for the violent sport. This is a sport that has seen many gain fame and have them rise up on the social ladder, earning respect and money for their skill in the respective arena. Or fall down as the 'sport' isn't without risks. In the past, there have been enough participants that had to quit their Godai career due to injuries.




        The Teams/Leagues:

        As expected only those who've mastered and trained control over an element can participate. To prevent that those with an active military record in the Shinobi corps can gain unfair advantages there are several playing leagues. The leagues are as follows: genin, specialised jounin and to full-fledged jounin. Players that are ranked on chuunin level can either chose to join a genin team or join a specialised jounin team. A team of three chuunin can only play in the specialised jounin league. Those outside of the military service are often judged on their capability and often have to go through several official tests to determine in which league they can play.
        Teams are made up of three participants. Each participant is allowed to field only one element that they can control - with each element having its own rules. Only the five basic elements (fire, water, lightning, wind, and earth) are allowed and the use of any advanced elements or Kekkei Genkei will result into the respective participant to be removed from the game - forcing his team to fight with 2 vs 3.
        It is required that the participants have a sponsor as the military doesn't contribute any side-payments for participants. The sponsors are responsible for paying player fines and damage to the arena, which might sound counter-productive from supporting a team. The opposite is, however, true. Sponsors who have a good or renowned team can expect fans to pay visits to their shops and as such see an increase in their income. That is as long as their team manages to secure victories. If not then a sponsor is likely to be ridiculed as his/her team will be.
        As can be expected, each league can field more experienced and capable participants. Before a team participates in a match they are required to fill in a form stating that they themselves are accountable and aware of the potential injuries and risks of participating. In order to try to prevent injuries, each participant is required to wear the official protective gear - without the glass/plastic of the helmet. It is designed to not hamper the wearer, but able to take a punch or two - though it is safe to assume that it won't be reliable if too much damage has been taken nor is it able to prevent bruising or other injuries ( as there have been records of broken bones of matches).




        Playing field and how it is done:

        The playing field is hexagonal, split into two sides, with a team on each side. Each side is divided into rings/sectors as one can view the image :

        [​IMG]

        At the start of the match, each team must remain within the first zone nearest to the centre of the arena. Once a competitor is knocked into zone two by someone from the opposing team, he or she must stay there and cannot return to zone one. The same rules apply if he or she crosses over to zone three. If a player is completely knocked off the back of the ring, they cannot return to the field in that round, but they can return for the next round if there is one.

        If all three members of one team are knocked back into zone two, the referee will invoke a pause and the opposing team can advance into zone one on the other side; if they do this, they cannot move backwards into their own zone.

        If a team manages to knock all of the opposing team members into zone three, another short pause will be invoked, and they can advance again into zone two. However, if a team that has been pushed back manages to push the other team back a zone, they can advance forward one zone. The main objective for both teams is to push the other team back, thereby gaining territory.

        Each match consists of three rounds of three minutes each. The team that has managed to gain the most territory within the time frame wins the round. This means that even if two players from one team have been knocked out, that team can still win if the remaining player manages to gain the most territory by the end of the round. If both sides have not gained any territory, the team with the most players left wins. Otherwise, the round is a draw, resulting in a tie-breaker.
        At the beginning of the tie-breaker, the referee flips a coin, with each side of the coin corresponding to one team, either blue or red. The team that wins the coin toss decides the element that is challenged. If the winning team chooses "fire" for instance, the fire style users fight it out; the winner of the one-on-one wins the round. The tie-breaker is conducted on a raised platform positioned at the very centre of the ring.
        An alternative method to win is to complete a knockout, where all three players of the opposing team are knocked out of the ring during the same round. A knockout results in an automatic win of the match, regardless of whether or not the opponents won more rounds.
        Game play only continues if any given player manages to return to the playing field before being forced out of the arena, either by hanging onto the edge of the arena and returning to the surface or by helping another team member return to the arena - depending on how the arena is build up as many variations exist.




        Elemental style rules :

        Next to the former rules, there are specific rules with each element one will use in the field. Each element has three techniques that basically exist out of a light and heavy attack and a block. There is room to use the three techniques to use in a creative manner or attempt to create combinations with other elements - though one has to consider if this will be more or less effective as there are only three participants allowed while there are five basic elements.


        Water style :

        Name of Technique: Water Style : Light Water Ball
        Type of Jutsu: Offensive ninjutsu
        Rank: D
        Range: Short
        Nature Type: Water
        Handseals: Rat -> Horse
        Description:
        The user weaves the two respective hand signals to convert his/her chakra into water and spits out a ball (at the size of a soccer ball) of water towards their victim. The small ball of water travels at the speed of a thrown shuriken and can pack a good punch against light fire attacks. It also can serve to weaken a fire block quite well.
        Weakness:
        Earth attacks can easily slam through water light attacks and the light water attack doesn't do much against earth blocks.

        Name of Technique: Water Style : Heavy Attack
        Type of Jutsu: Offensive ninjutsu
        Rank: D
        Range: Short

        Description:
        A much more powerful and bigger version of the Light Water attack technique. The water ball is double in size, though slightly slower in speed. It can go through fire blocks and weaken lightning blocks. It is also obvious to assume that the punch behind the heavy attacks will be much more powerful.
        Weakness:
        The speed is slower, making evading them easier. They aren't really efficient against earth blocks.

        Note about the techniques

        Yes, a character will still need to learn the techniques. Instead of the regular rule, we can assume that higher ranked and more experienced characters have an easier time to learn these quite basic techniques. Those without much or any experience in elemental techniques will have a harder time, but don't be too tough. The techniques are quite mild and not that super difficult.


        It is safe to assume that elements that don't have a strong-weak relation will even each other out. It is not allowed to use any other techniques, will result in a penalty. Neither is it allowed to use a technique in a 'stream' fashion or aim at the head of an opponent during a match.

    • Each country has their own set of laws. Most often they are quite similar to one another. However due to a cultural difference or preference they can slightly differ. Not to mention that citizenship can mean a difference in each nation as well. This section displays the laws and what citizenship entitles and how it's acquired.


      • Laws WIP




      • Citizen's rights

        • The right to make legal contracts and to hold property as an Akinian citizen.
        • The right to have lawful marriages, which when between an Akinian citizen and non-citizen the children will follow the surname of the citizen if they wish to have the right of citizenship.
        • The right to become part of higher ranked positions in the Empire.
        • The right of self-defense, in the case of being assaulted in a physical manner.
        • The right to sue and the right to be sued. If, however, this is done out of abuse - thus, the person suing the other for not a good enough reasons, the 'abuser' has to pay a heavy fine to the state.
        • The right to have a legal trial (to appear before a proper court and to defend oneself).
        • An Akinian citizen can request commute sentences of death to voluntary exile - though the state will choose to which borders they will deport the person - unless the person is found guilty of treason.
        • Right of freedom, thus, slavery is outlawed. The penalty is severe on those who trade in slaves or hold other people as slaves. Even foreigners within the Empire are protected from slavery.
        • The right to preserve one's level of citizenship upon relocation to another location within the borders of the realm. A very small fee is required, though, for administration work.
        • Right of following one's religion as long as those don't collide with the laws. This means that any religion that enforces killing and slavery is banned. Cults included.
        • The right to read and learn, though as long as the literature work isn't on the ban list (Thus mainly kinjutsu or approved 'secretive' works, such as Hidden).
        • The right to divorce, for Akinian citizens there is no need for a small extra fee for administration cost attached to it.
        • The right for Akinian citizens in villages and small settlements to vote their mayor and village leaders. These are to represent their small population to the administration of the Governor of the respective province they are in.


        Duty and bans

        * Other than the banning of wounding, killing or stealing from another person and other 'common sense' bans and laws.

        • The duty to pay taxes, next to special (regional) taxes.
        • The duty to every mayor/village elder to organise a small group of people older than fourteen years old to exercise in martial arts/weaponry every week for at least four hours. This is to create a ready reserve for the military, but also to help improve security around villages and settlements against bandits. This duty doesn't apply for those who already serve in the military.
        • The duty to be in the registers and be part of the military in case of wearing and owning weaponry.
        • The duty to report a dead. A heavy fine and even imprisonment follow-on not reporting a deceased person.


        Inheritance

        Anything can be inherited, but depending on it is on Akinian soil, the inheritor must be a citizen that lives in the realm. Any land that belongs to the realm can't be inherited out of the Empire. The inheritor must be a citizen without a treaty to prolong his/her stay out of the Empire.
        As long as it doesn't conflict with the Imperial Inheritance law, clans are free to conclude their own way of inheritance/succession. It's important to, however, know that if there is no clear succession or something to clarify who inherits the land that it becomes 'free ground' (land that can be bought without needing the permission of a clan leader or such).



        Clans and Provinces

        Clan leaders of recognised clans have the small right to request denial to people who have misbehaved in the compound and region of where their clan reside. In case the 'accused' doesn't agree with this, a trial can be invoked. The 'accused' does have to be a citizen of the Empire. In case that the respective person isn't a citizen, the leader of the respective clan can evict the person.

        Clan leaders can invoke a special tax on their clans, next to the Imperial/State tax. This tax needs to follow certain rules - as not being too high - and it's more or less semi-voluntary. In case somebody of the clan or living on the region that is proclaimed as the old land of the respective clan doesn't, however, pay for this tax that can make the clan leader request that the person leaves the region. This all has to be followed and watched over by the governmental administration in order to prevent abuse and situations growing out of control or becoming violent.

        Clan leaders can make laws for their 'AoC' (Area of control, thus compounds and regions) as long as these don't collide with the Imperial laws or the state's military in any manner. These laws need to be analysed and allowed by the governors of the province in which the clan is residing. At the same time, the provinces of the Akinian Empire are allowed to make their own laws, but they have to be reviewed by the Civic Council and being approved by the Emperor/Empress.



      • A brief note about the national/state laws of the Lightning Country and her subjects :

        Due to the nomadic cultures and groups, the laws can't always be applied as those who live a settled existence. This doesn't, however, bar the nomads from facing the same punishments. If proven that a member of a nomad clan or group has committed a crime, he/she shall be brought back to the region where the crime happened. The local authorities shall then proceed as they would with any citizen of the state that lived there. These laws that follow are held and followed in the Lightning country and her vassals, though some clans have gained permission through a special tax to bend or hold slight different laws. If this tax isn't paid and the clans conduct traditions and uphold laws that contradict any of the national states then the clan's higher echelon shall be held responsible and be arrested for trial.




        Rights

        The rights that the citizens of the Lightning country and her vassals have are :

        • Protection from violent abuse.
          • Self-defence is allowed, but this will be investigated by local authorities and if there is a lack of self-defense the 'culprit' shall suffer a harsher punishment.
        • Protection from slavery. Slavery is by the law forbidden and banned out of the Lightning country and her subject states.
          • A contract that binds somebody to the wishes and desires of the contract owner is, however, allowed. This won't be called a slavery bond, but the person who agreed to the contract shall simply work and earn his wager according to the contract as a serf. The breaking of the contract can invoke punishment on the culprit.
        • Every citizen of the state has the right of a fair trial and be allowed to hold her or his defence.
        • Every citizen of the state has the right of voting for the local mayor every three years in their city and region.
        • Every citizen of the state has the right to carry weapons in order to serve in the military or local militia.
          • This is, however, needing a requirement of one to be serving in a military branch or an acknowledged militia. Anybody that isn't part of the military or militia and to be found carrying arms will be punished according to the laws.
        • Every citizen of the state has the right of free marriage. This means that nobody can be forced into a marriage proposal, less the enforcers wish to be put for trial.


        Bans and illegal

        What is considered illegal by the law of the Lightning country and her subject states are :

        • This state law dictates all those found guilty of engaging in any form of piracy will face the punishment of beheading or hanging.
        • This state law dictates all those found guilty of endangering a child will face the punishment of jail for ten years.
          • There is, however, a difference between 'children' that serve in the military and find themselves in particularly dangerous situations. They did sign up for the military and the state can't be held responsible for them to be good patriots.
        • This state law dictates all those found guilty of continuing to be a public nuisance will face the punishment of compensation to the victims in servitude.
          • The duration of this punishment may last as long as the local authorities see fit.
        • This state law dictates all those found guilty of carrying or possessing illegal weapons will face the punishment of paying the state twofold for the illegal contraband as well ten years in prison.
        • This state law dictates all those found guilty of conspiring with the enemy will face the punishment of death.
        • This state law dictates all those found guilty of fighting in public will face the punishment of a short-term prison sentence.
          • This isn't the case as when a spar or training happens outside urban areas. If a spar or similar events are held in a sub-urban or any area which might endanger locals the participants of the event shall be suffering the same punishment.
        • This state law dictates all those found guilty of reporting a fake emergency will face the punishment of long-term public service.








      • Laws WIP



      • To become acknowledged as a citizen of Akino, one has to be born and live for ten years in Akino, with parents both having citizenship. Those who don't fit with that have to request citizenship, even if they are born within the borders of the realm - as long as they haven't lived for ten years in the Akinian realm. Citizenship can be gained by a few ways :

        • Serving for twelve (4 years of training and eight years of service) years in the Akinian military, without any long break during the time.
          • A long break is seen as any pausing of the service for longer than two weeks.
        • Paying taxes for twenty years as well having a good record (this means not being involved in any crimes) as married to a citizen of the Empire.
        • Granted by the Emperor/Empress as a sign of gratitude for the person's service.
          • This can also possibly extent that the current children of the person are granted and seen as citizens of the Empire, regardless of their age.

        Once this is done, citizenship can be requested for a reasonable price. That is if the person will be acknowledged, this, however, doesn't mean that if a father of a family request citizenship and is granted that, it will be given to his family as well. It's only with each single individual person. Of course, there is a strict watch on papers and lists to prevent people from just getting citizenship.

        Citizenship allows a person to live and roams around in Akino almost unhindered as border and province patrols allow those with the right papers to travel around. Akinian citizens are allowed to purchase homes and own more than 10 square of metres. This also includes shops and stands. With being a citizen it further allows the person to climb the higher ranks of society (and military). Citizenship can be revoked and will be done so- if not a contract is signed - as any citizen that remains longer than a year outside the borders (without being there on a mission, such as the military). A small fee each month is required to uphold the contract to keep the citizenship prolonged. Somebody's citizenship can also be taken away after a heavy crime. The respective person can attempt to earn it back, but even after meeting one of the conditions it can be denied because of the criminal record of the said person.


      • One can claim and gain citizenship in the Lightning country through either being born in the country to a citizen or by living for ten years in the country and having served at least five years in any community. When the latter is done, the person can then request to gain a chance to buy citizenship. A background check will follow to determine if the person will receive the chance and determined by local authorities shall be given his or her citizenship.
        This will include a dog-tag on which the name, birthplace and short information shall be inscribed. A number shall also be noted down on both the dog-tag as in the records - of which a copy shall be sent to the administration of the state.





      • There is the usual kind of animals around in the RP. Panthers, wolves, hounds, cats, tigers, bears and you name it. All kind of animals that we are also used to in our own life. However, thanks to the fantasy theme in the RP setting it is not that strange that some rarities do appear every once in a while. There are after all the bijuu who can be considered the strongest of the mythological kind of creatures that can appear in the setting. But there are some others that have made their entry and left some impact in the setting. This is informative section is simply to give clarification on rare these creatures are, their strong points and weaknesses.

        "So if most of these creatures can't be found or are very rare to be encountered, what is the use of this?"

        The use of this section is to give an idea of what one might still encounter in literal work or in some rare occasions face to face ( with characters. I sadly can't introduce you to anything mythological in real life. Sorry). It also serves to help people to realise and find back what kind of mythological or rare creatures have been before in the story as this is, after all, a setting with a lot of fantasy themes in it.

        Name/plural :
        Chimera (Chimeras)

        Average size :
        It largely depends on what kind of chimera. Some are depicted to be larger than the average human being where others are smaller in size.

        Average lifespan :
        It's largely unknown, nor ever mentioned in literature work.

        Rarity :
        Very rare.

        Region of appearance :
        Chimaeras don't appear in the wild as they are the product of human experiments. And most of these experiments, which date from before till around five years later the Great War, were left to rot and die in the hidden facilities on which dark and grim experiments were held. The only chimaeras that have been encountered in the story/setting were found in an underground facility that was abandoned by the researchers and maintainers in the Fire province, managing to survive on each other as well by some support of an unknown faction.

        'Lifestyle' :
        It largely depends on what kind of chimaera. Though it's safe to assume that most of them were made to become predatory creatures, to be used as beasts of war and terror. Which as we can conclude by the setting, hasn't worked out for any nation that indulged into them.

        Description :
        In literature work in the setting, chimaeras appear in all kind of forms and sizes. They are the monsters that guard some treasury and valuable tools as weapons. A lot of abilities are given to them, making them the more terrifying to face. This is however in the fiction. The chimaeras that have appeared in the story are however not that far from those who are described in the literature work. Morbid mixes between all kind of creatures, the chimaeras are deadly foes. Often capable of using weapons and natural abilities of the animals that they are composed out of. Some are even more 'modified' to use enhanced abilities, most likely using chakra to use them, to be ever more deadly.

        Strong points :
        • Varies among each kind of chimaera. Though it's safe to assume that the strong points rely on the animals that they are composed out off.

        Weaknesses :
        • Unstable creatures : Chimaeras aren't stable creatures. Even though they would be terrifying creatures to face against, they wouldn't likely be capable allies either. With being nothing more than being mixes of all kind of creatures, it is hard to imagine that they would remain much sane while adopting all kind of traits of the animals that they are composed out off. This result that a chimaera is often an enemy that is wildly attacking targets left and right or is at best capable of some intelligence that is just very limited (and prone to be falling back to a primitive mix of desires).
        • Infertile : Chimaeras aren't capable of reproducing themselves in any natural way.

        Direwolf / Direwolves

        Average size :
        It depends on those who are wild or are breed in the Hon clan. The average size of either 'dire wolf' is much bigger than the average wolf or hound. The majority of the dire wolf have a shoulder height of .9 metres and have a broader muzzle than their wolf cousins. Wild dire wolves, rare as they are, can grow much larger as one can see in the image above.

        Average lifespan :
        The average lifespan of a wild dire wolf ranges from fifteen to twenty years. Hon dire wolves live much longer, ranging from forty to fifty. Though that is usually quite rare, seeing their 'occupation'.

        Rarity :
        In the wild, dire wolves are rare. Even in captivity in the Hon clan, dire wolves aren't that common.

        Region of appearance :
        The region in which the dire wolf seems to habit is mostly deep in the woods of the Sarutobi and Hon heartlands as well in the more hill and the (small) mountainous area in this stretched out area of appearance.

        'Lifestyle' :
        Direwolves are predatory animals. They are much like wolves, though with their intelligence, they hunt in more dangerous methods. Having more patience and a better understanding of most of their preys as well knowing how to cooperate better. There are some dire wolves who are encountered alone, living a solitary existence. There has yet to be a reason found for this, but it is at the moment assumed that these 'exiles' are either outcasts or old and sick specimen- though healthy a. A pack of dire wolves in the wild can range from four to twelve.

        Description :
        Direwolves are not much different from wolves in appearance . The colour of their fur is often light when they are young, but tends to grow darker when they get older. This, of course, doesn't apply to all of them, as there are dire wolves that are born with a dark fur. They are quite fast and able to run at an average of 82 k/m (A lion can run at 80 k/m while a horse runs at 88 k/m), but not always able to outrun their preys. Often their tactics are to inflict a strong bite as their jaws at 1900 PSI - thus, 861 kg biting force. (Pound per square inch. To give an idea, its the same amount as that of a grizzly and humans have a PSI of 150. Do note however that is a bite in great conditions - such as the target not trying to move away and other factors that lower the grip or size of the bite). Once a target has been quite wounded and is bleeding out, the dire wolves often back off if the prey is still going strong. Letting the prey flee and bleed out, the pack will follow the scent of the respective victim. Once their prey is weakened by blood loss and exhausted, the pack finish the hunt.

        Strong points :
        • Deadly bite :Direwolves have an amazing power in their jaws. With teeth that are meant to slice meat and crush bones, a dire wolf is capable of being a quite the threat to even armed people. With a lot of bacteria, their bites can often also give rise to infections if not treated quickly after being bitten.
        • Intelligence : They are quite intelligent, capable of working with their pack to be one cohesive unit to take down bigger preys.
        • Great and keen instincts : They have a great hearing and smelling ability, making them great hunters.
        • Other than that, they have a great stamina. Their fur, muscle and fat provide also some adequate defence against small arms, which can make them a troublesome foe with their reflexes and strength.
        Weaknesses :
        • Speed : While they are in close ranged quite capable and sport good stamina, they aren't capable of keeping too long up with other animals like horses.
        • Fierce nature : Though dire wolves aren't really solitary animals, it is not unusual to see infighting happen between them as weak pack leaders are often challenged and even eaten.

        Name/plural :
        Roc / Rocs

        Average size :
        Rocs are often depicted in stories to be capable of picking up and destroying small fisher ships, but the average sized roc is the size of a small horse.

        Average lifespan :
        As far its known, the average lifespan of a Roc is to be estimated from twenty-five to thirty-five years old.

        Rarity :
        Rare. While they appear in more regions than most of the other 'mythological creatures, the population of the species is never too dominant that an encounter will be a daily matter.

        Region of appearance :
        The majority of the Rocs have been spotted at the northern and the eastern parts of the Kanashi Ocean. There have been reports and stories that there are also small populations at the Sea Country.

        'Lifestyle' :
        It's so not confirmed if the birds are solitaire or live in small communities. This has been difficult to conclude as there has never been a full analysis on the birds. Even with the Akiyama clan in Kirigakure, who hold since recently a number of these birds, most of what is known of the birds is merely guessing. With reports and stories about these birds varying, it is thus hard to say what they are. They, however, have been reporting to hunt for small cattle and animals on land - both alone as in pairs. It is not also unusual to spot a roc attempting to hunt down another bird, but this has occurred less as the bigger sized specimen aren't that agile as other birds. Fishermen have also reported and tales of how rocs attempted to dive down and attempting to steal some of their caught fish as well rocs diving down to try to catch fish themselves. They thus seem to have a moderate of intelligence and so far a few have been tamed, but their handlers do report that it is an extremely tough job to keep the birds disciplined to prevent infighting and

        Description :
        The average roc is quite large. When standing on its legs and its back straightened out, their height can reach up from 6'6 feet/1.98 metres to 8'10 feet/2.69 metres. Usually, their feathers sport a brown coloured, though there have been rocs that had feathers that are slightly darker or lighter though nothing too far away from brown.

        Strong points :
        - Strong : The birds are capable of lifting heavy weight with their size. With their sharp talons, they can deliver deadly attacks with diving on their prey, digging their talons in them and proceeding to drag them up in the air to only drop them to their demise.
        - Sharp eyes : Rocs have similar sharp eyes to that of hawks.
        - Good intelligence : Rocs have shown that they are cunning enough to observe and make capable estimations on when they can take on a prey or not. Their intelligence further allows them to learn quickly from mistakes and adapt.
        Weaknesses :
        - Strong sense of independence : With their strong sense of independence it has proven difficult to tame these creatures, often resulting in the creature's demise or that of the handler.
        - Fickle Loyalty : Handlers have reported that it is a constant fight to keep control over their rocs as the birds test their handlers from time to time. Disobeying an order or straight out attempting to attack their handler isn't a rare occurrence.


      • Note : "Though they are or can at least be classified as humanoids, natural chakra leeches (people who don't use sealing or any kind of ninjutsu, but it is as natural ability to leech chakra ) and Others ( reported shape-shifters) are being treated here as the other mythological classed creatures.

        Name/plural :
        Leech/ Leeches and Other / Others.

        Average size :
        Depending on the certain kind that one uses it for. Chakra leeches are at the size of an average human. The Others have reported transforming into 9 ft. tall, bipedal creatures sharing traits that are both lupine and primate such as claws, fangs and fur.

        Average lifespan :
        Same as a human at least assumed so.

        Rarity :
        In the case of natural leeches, very rare. Only a very few people are born with the ability to leech chakra from their victims. It's yet to discover if this is a mutation or a certain kind of gene. The Others are very rare as well as there is even much less information discovered on how they came to be.

        Region of appearance :
        N/A

        'Lifestyle' :
        Chakra Leeches are 'doomed' to experience sensations of an almost alien feeling that drives them to leech chakra from their (potential) victims. How they conduct the leeching of chakra varies among the tales, but it's reputed to be anything but pleasant. Thanks to this, they are depicted in stories as people who have become corrupted and vile creatures that simply use their human form to continue to keep existing while extracting chakra from their preys.

        Description :
        Chakra leeches are rumoured in stories to be pale and fair skinned people. But in reality, they've no trait that makes them different in appearance. The same counts for the Others before their transformation. When Others shapeshift into their 'other' appearance, they take the shape of a 9 ft. tall, bipedal creature sharing traits that are both lupine and primate such as claws, fangs and fur. Mostly rely on their superior physical strength and heightened senses to hunt their prey, such as a keen sense of smell, an Other can be a dangerous threat. Not to mention that Others have the ability to spit crimson liquid - often mistaken by blood - to confuse and terrify their opponent, either to create a moment to land an attack or flee.

        Strong points :
        * Chakra Leech ;
        - Natural Ability : the natural ability to leech chakra allows chakra leeches to recover and replenish their chakra reserve faster than ordinary people.

        * Other ;
        - Strong : Others are physically stronger thanks to their better-developed muscles.
        - Heightened senses : Keen sense of smell and hearing make them hard to ambush as well to lose them once they start to track you.
        - Endurance : Shapeshifted Others are capable of enduring more damage than in their humanoid form. Attacks with the use of chakra seem to have also a reduced amount of effect on them.

        Weaknesses :
        * Chakra Leech ;
        - Urges : From time to time chakra leeches feel an urge, an almost alien sensation running through their arm(s), that makes them want to leech chakra from others.
        - Contact : In order to extract chakra from their victims, a chakra leech has to make physical contact.


        * Other ;
        - Feral : Others that shape shifted have trouble to not fall into a state that they can't follow proper reason, making them harder to predict, but also a danger to everybody in the vicinity.
        - Unable to use any form of ninjutsu while transformed.

      • Kirigakure



        • Settled on the largest island of the Water country, the capital of the Republic is found in a certain most strategic position. The city itself might have sturdy walls, but has the terrain as the defence as well. Not far from the city does the landscape become a mix of hills, meadow and forests that lead up to the surrounding mountainous area that seems to harbour Kirigakure from any inland incursions.

          Intelligence Division HQ
          Name : Intelligence Division HQ

          Location : Located in one of Kirigakure's Poor districts.

          Aesthetics/Appearance:
          The Intelligence Division HQ of Kirigakure stands slightly out of the surrounding buildings. It looks robust and with the dark grey walls more like a fortification or prison than anything else. There are several banners of the Republic hanging in the wind or laying over a section of the walls. With its height and size, it is quite visible in the district it is located in. There is one layer of walls, making it indeed more as a military fort than not. Earning it from the locals the nick : Kirigakure's Detention centre.

          Function :
          The Intelligence Division in Kirigakure serves as the command post for both the personal that both serve to spy and gather intel over the Republic's rival and enemies as counter-intelligence. It is since the fall of the Mizukage after the victory of the Revolutionaries also the HQ of the Kirigakure ANBU. It is just speculation out in the open, but it is actually a rumour that is true that the complex supports what one could call a detention centre.

          Other :
          Most people tend to avoid the grey and rather sombre looking complex. There are several visible ANBU members guarding and walking patrol rounds and for some reason, it is hard to find much crime around the complex's perimeter. While this might provide some comfort, most people dread the day that they are demanded or needed to walk through the gates and doors of the complex.

        • - Akiyama family manor (Distant from public, near large forest)








        Konohagakure



        • The forest of the Fire province slowly paves way for the rolling hills that show the 'fresh' and 'new' countryside. Farms that produce grain, fields that hold place cattle and meadow fields reach all around the towering and stubborn walls of Konohagakure. A traveller will notice that the land is rich. Locals are quite often friendly as they live literally almost in the shadow of the capital's strong and mighty walls. There seems to be some work down in front of the walls as people are digging what seems to be a broad moat.

          Towers and soldiers on the battlements can easily see people approaching from a large distance after the Senju farm project. Ready and eager to defend their city, the security is clearly present. Arriving at the main gates, one would need to let their carts and waggon - if present- to be checked by the guards at the gate. With the sensory barrier in place, soldiers and shinobi work together to maintain a strict surveillance on who enters or leaves the city.

          After you enter the city, you'll find yourself in the Merchant district. Seeing the inner wall and its towers clearly and in the far distance the Hokage Mountain monument.

          Police Corps HQ
          Name :
          Police Corps HQ

          Location :
          In one of Konohagakure's poor districts

          Aesthetics/Appearance:
          The complex that is the HQ of the Police corps looks on the outside firm, with strong beige coloured walls. The emblem of the blue background and white shield is visible from the few flags that uphold the banners of the corps. In the inside, it is more comfortable looking, even though the atmosphere is quite serious. In the 'basement', there are several inside training facilities and the building support an own barracks for those in service of the corps.

          Function :
          The Police Corps is the main HQ where the leading officials manage the police corps over the whole realm. It is where meetings are held in order to increase and maintain the efficiency that is expected of the police corps to uphold the order and peace.

          Other :
          Though out of sight, underneath a heavily guarded and fortified side-building of the complex, is the prison. Locked away from the warm sun, the Police corps detain criminals that aren't considered to be much of a threat, due to several factors. Such as the chakra-restraining neckband.


          Cho Compound
          Name :
          Cho Compound
          Location :
          Konohagakure's poor districts

          Aesthetics/Appearance:
          There is a bright white wall marking the Cho district. While located in one of Konohagakure's more poor district, there is little sign of any poverty inside the compound. In fact, there is a certain atmosphere residing between the bright white walls of the Cho compound. On the walls, there are symbols of the moon, butterflies and signs as the state and people give the idea that one is back into one of the districts that fares actually better in finances. There isn't too much vegetation present, though. The largest building is located in the centre, the Cho temple. A circular large building that houses a library and acts as the centre of the Cho clan's presence in the realm. Much in the same spirit as Konohagakure does for the Empire. It has a market from where they sell goods and resources that are hard to find. Such as good quality weapons from their Hyuzu allies and such.

          Function :
          It functions as the compound for the members of the Cho clan and culture. There is also a pharmacy that offers quite good care for a relatively cheap price.

          Other :
          While the Cho clan is actually a clan that overall is doing pretty well with their trade and might surprises a person with finding the compound in one of the more poor districts of Konohagakure, there is a good reason for this. The Cho Guard often do patrol rounds in the surrounding poor districts to aid the police force as one every Tuesday there is are a few stands in the compound that gives away free fresh meals to those who fight and struggle to survive. There is also a special tax that the Cho clan also 'request' of those living inside the walls as it is a custom in the Cho clan to provide 3% of their income to pay the clan's taxes. Another additional 2% is requested and saved away to ensure social care. Also, because they value art and decorated the compound with lovely gardens. They keep the gardens in top shape and beauty by hiring people of the Yamanaka and Sarutobi clan to attend to their gardens.


          Sarutobi Compound
          Name :
          Sarutobi Compound
          Location :
          In one of Konohagakure's poorer districts
          Aesthetics/Appearance:
          There is, as it is the case with many other compounds, a small wall surrounding the compound. Unlike other clan compounds, this is, however, a simple wooden palisade. The buildings that are the shops and homes of those of the Sarutobi clan and culture are clearly influenced by the clan's current forest homeland. They are largely made up from wood and not too expensive materials. There is also some more vegetation being presented as many homes 'decorate' their homes with small gardens and there is in the middle of the compound a circle of trees planted. In the midst of the tree circle is a large white stone present.

          Function :
          It functions as the compound of the Sarutobi clan in Konohagakure, housing members of the clan and culture in the city. It isn't, however, the centre of the Sarutobi population nor clan.

          Other :
          It has mostly shops that orientate on simple affairs. There are various shops that orientate in repairing tools, clothing and some wares. There also often live bands playing in the streets and the surrounding places of the district where the compound is located. There is also an archery range present in the compound.



          - Intelligence Division HQ
          Name :
          - Intelligence Division HQ
          Location :
          In one of Konohagakure's poor districts.
          Aesthetics/Appearance:
          It is a large complex that supported at first just the Intelligence Division and secretly being one of the many training facilities for the Zero Teams. With the Imperial reformation, it is also the HQ of the ANBU corps, which saw the addition of several buildings being built - attached to the complex. Underground, the division supports the storage for many of the documents that are about the shinobi corps, the blood samples of the citizens inside the inner section of Konohagakure, techniques and also information gathered from the Zero Teams which need to be decoded. The large complex has grey walls and often chuunin ranked shinobi walk guard patrols around the complex as disguised ANBU members.

          Function :
          The HQ of the Intelligence Division, and its agencies, as the ANBU corps HQ.

          Other :
          Though the Police force HQ has more cells, there is a detention centre within the complex of the Intelligence Division. This is for special 'cases', who are being heavily guarded and monitored. Often not spotting daylight once being held there.


          - Training Facility building.
          Name :
          Training Facility building.
          Location :
          In one of Konohagakure's poor districts.
          Aesthetics/Appearance:

          The training facility is a circular building that isn't tall, but quite broad. Inside the facility gives a comfortable atmosphere for those who enter, which are mostly shinobi who have signed and requested a field to train in.

          Function :
          An idea originating from Amegakure, the facility sports at first sight only bland looking fields. Teams of chuunin who have specialised in certain elements and techniques work together as a team to form the field into something that a signed up team has requested. This allows for training in many more surroundings and scenarios.

          Other :
          While mostly shinobi enter and have the interest in paying a visit to the facility, the building also attracts the attention of some orphans and other people who are allowed to watch the shinobi performing their training. Perhaps not a too big coincidence that the facility is located in a poor district?

          A long and sturdy wall with several round towers, manned by both soldiers as shinobi. There are various checkpoints at gates, barring most outsiders easily out as those who are on guard and patrol make sure that nobody crosses the wall without permission.

          Function :
          This wall is made to separate the Merchant district, the district right in front of the Main Gate, from the rest of Konohagakure. At this inner wall, there have been made checkpoints and some smaller variants of barriers and seals in order to try to prevent anybody from simply scaling or digging underneath the wall. In order to get from the Merchant district to the inner districts of Konohagakure, one needs to validate that they are born civilians or granted rights to enter the inner section of Konohagakure.

          This is being checked by blood. Every civilian of Konohagakure (and every shinobi) needs to donate a bit of blood in order for those who watch over the security within Konohagakure. By the blood, the chakra signature of the person can be traced and matched with anybody that has been registered as a civilian or person permitted to enter the inner section of Konohagakure. The blood of the active shinobi is being taken and used in order to check the current state of the army as well to decrease the capabilities of offensive intelligence gathering from rivals.

          Other :
          There are several stations present at the 'back' of the wall that function as some small guard posts and barracks. It is often where those who are assigned to guard and patrol duty take their breaks.


          Ozawa's Square
          Name :

          Location :

          It close to the centre of Konohagakure, thus in a middle-class district.
          Aesthetics/Appearance:
          It is one of Konohagakure's largest squares/plaza's. It is a busy sector of the centre as many people cross and walk up or down the place to go their job, home or appointments. There is a low wall that has a small gate leading a very small park, where often people sit down at benches and enjoy their lunch or breaks. There are often a few stands that sell It is also frequently visited by a certain Yamanaka, who often sits with her back against the wall, watching the (almost) countless people minding their own business.

          Function :
          It is a square. Often used for shoppers and workers of the surrounding workshops and shops to take a break. Most people just cross and pass it by as they head towards their work.

          Other :
          Currently, Saki Yamanaka is often found there, just eating a sandwich and observing people.


          - Hokage Mountain Monument/Hall of Heroes
          Name :

          Location :

          Hokage Mountain Monument and Hall of Heroes
          Aesthetics/Appearance:
          The quite visible landmark with the faces of the four Hokage is to be seen from quite a distance. A small stair is hacked out of the mountain that leads a path upwards. But other than the quite known Mountain monument, there is the Hall of Heroes. Nothing more than a large double door entrance, guarded by four chuunin ranked shinobi. Inside there is a long hall that is dim lighted. There are several statues and painting of each 'hero' of the Empire listed. Information is given on a pedestal and a small book, chained to each pedestal that allows one to learn a bit about each of the people inside the Hall. Only dead people, however, are 'listed' in the hall.

          A secret meeting room is also built in the hall. If one knows the place and way how to get access as several barriers hide and prevent somebody just easy access to the room, they can get into the meeting hall where the higher ups of the Empire meet and discuss matters.

          Function :
          The Hall of Heroes serves the same as the Hokage Mountain monument. It allows those who live in Konohagakure to learn about those who have done a great deed for Konohagakure in the past and also the current Empire. Currently, there is statues and information found about :

          Gakuro Senju, the First Hokage. Founder of the Leaf Village and many contribute that as end of the warring clans
          Daisuke Uchiha, the Second Hokage. The Hokage who secured more ties and bonds with clans inside the now present Fire province, as well improving the infrastructure of the military hierarchy.


          Other :
          To get access, one needs to request it by writing the administration of the Governor. While there are also not currently a lot of people listed in the hall, it is clear that some are already going to receive a place as several more pedestals are readied.

          Name :
          Royal Imperial Palace
          Location :
          Secluded in even a rich district.
          Aesthetics/Appearance:
          [​IMG]

          The perimeter of the palace is barred off by a thick wall - as a sensory barrier -, guarded by the Sworn Swords - the royal and the elite unit of the Empire. The gate leads to a park that is being tended by some of the best gardeners that the Yamanaka and Sarutobi can offer as it gives a very calming and soothing feeling for those who enter the area. The gardens lead to the palace, which also provides a large barracks to the Sworn Swords and spacing for the personal that work and live inside the walls of the palace.

          The second wall is also heavily guarded and fortified, having several barriers that will limit people in or out of the complex. From the second wall, one enters also the personal gardens of the Empress, where she can be occasionally found reading a book or finding some cover from the sun in the shade of a willow or oak tree.

          One can also see the two wide doors that will lead towards the internals of the palace. Many of the first and first floor halls are largely decorated with paintings and other decorations that are made to impress a visitor. There are several large rooms on this floor where most of the guests, which need to be invited, are received. On the second floor the halls are less decorated as here are the halls and rooms that are designed for the personal that work and live in the palace. The third-floor house any guests who are invited to stay in the palace, which is often seen as a sign of gratitude and honour as such invitations are often personally sent by the Emperor or Empress themselves.

          The third floor also houses a small library and sort of lounging room where guests can gain some respite as they'll be served by the personal who will try to see to most of the needs of the guests. There is also a small part where there is a some spacing for the most elite of the Sworn Swords, who are selected out of the elite and royal guard unit to guard and accompany the ruler of the Empire.

          On this bit of smaller department, are the personal rooms and halls made for the ruler of the Empire. A bigger library and relaxation rooms are meant to give some rest and peace for the one who leads the nation. There are only a very few who are allowed to enter this part, except for those who are granted access by the ruler.

          In the top of the palace, there is a specially made study room, designed in the taste of the current ruler. From the windows, one has a great view on the nearby city and parks.

          Function :
          It is the seat of power of the ruler of the Empire.

          Other :
          The whole place is a seal that is empowered by the people walking around. The seal is to subdue chakra in a similar manner as a chakra mast that active chakra moulding is hard to pull off and thus disallowing those who don't have Bijuu chakra to have trouble fighting there.

        Kumogakure



        • Kumogakure is settled near what is rumoured one of the highest mountains of the Lightning country. Those who approach the city, no matter from which of the few directions, they are required to look up to the walls and defences of the city, often giving them the impression that the defences are much taller than they truly are. At the nothern approach of the city, there are cattle often spotted in fields that are fenced and herded, where the approach from southern - which is the most used - is being kept free from any vegetation.

          Where some people complain that the terrain is too steep, the roads that lead to the gates are kept in top shape to ensure that no traveller or merchant will find their waggons toppling over or rolling backwards down to the lower levels of the area.

          Name :
          Kumo's Orphanage
          Location :
          In one of Kumo's poor districts.
          Aesthetics/Appearance:
          As expected from the location, the building doesn't look like a villa complex. It is decent on the outside and even moderately nice to be in, but it is clear that the place isn't a real sanctuary where wine and food are in abundance. It might not be the best place to live in, but if asked, many orphans do have a decent situation that is being funded by the state.

          Function :
          The obvious task is that the orphanage takes and looks after the orphans that reside inside. It also is one of the recruitment grounds for Asami's spy network, her 'little birds'.

          Workshops, houses of decent quality and as expected from the clan that is renowned for their artisans and smiths in metallurgy, making it not a surprise to see a lot of the shops are focused on blacksmiths and such. While it is often noisy, the homes are more secluded from the workshops and shops. Many interested people can get some quite good quality tools, weapons and armour from the clan.

          Function :

          Other :

          The price is however regulated within the clan to support a healthy competition between the families and members of the workshops, akin close to a smiths guild. The items made with Dragon Steel are however not just for open sale and are need to be commissioned, but usually needs a person to go through a progress of being allowed to be given a weapon, tool or armour from that valuable metal.

          Aesthetics/Appearance:
          The home of the clan leaders of the Cho and Hon clan live modestly to what most would assume they live in. The house is in the section that goes from one middle-class district to the richer districts. It is like many of the neighbouring houses sporting a front garden and large backyard. The house itself is not larger than the surrounding houses but can easily support a family of five till eight occupants. There is no indication or symbol that leads to the Cho or Hon clan itself. Inside the house, there isn't much furniture or items that display a great wealth. Zakito has his own small study room where he often retires to read or write. And when he isn't there, it is bound that Kei or Aki are snuffling around in the study room when they manage to trick or fool Figuko.

          The basement is where Aiko grows several plants as having a male platypus as pet and source for her platypus poison recipe. The only noticeable landmark around the house is a large oak tree in the backyard.

          Other :
          Current occupants are Zakito Hon, Aiko Cho-Hon and their two children ; Akimoto Hon (m) and Kei Hon (f). Both the children are often watched over by Fugiko Hon, their nanny as several of the Cho's often also take care of the twin when neither their parents or Fugiki can attend to them.

Right now the house is, however (in the rooms that are used) decorated quite nicely without being 'too much'.
          Other :
          In the basement, Koike has designed and made the place to become his place to craft and store his bombs. There is a secret room, that can be opened by pushing a certain stone. With the inside being closed off, it's where some of his weapons and gear is stored out.

The house isn't really spacious, but can be called just average. It sports a basement where Hiron is now and then continuing his father's occupation as a silver smith, but more as a 'hobby'.

As for the Apartment itself, it has a bedroom with two beds and a trunk for storage at the foot of each bed. (this bedroom has a small bathroom attached). Then it has a small kitchenette with a living/dining area for the occupants. Although not that large, it effectively features a small couch with two Tv trays instead of any sort of table. The walls are decorated with a few pictures of the two residents together, the few times they were happy. The main feature of the living room is the bookshelf that is completely stocked with books that have been acquired over the years. The floors are carpeted with a very cheap carpeting that is starting to tear up in some areas.

    • The Bingo & Data Book,
      (In)Famous shinobi.



      • [​IMG]

        The Bingo Book

        Introduction :
        This thread shows and lets you know about several shinobi who have gained a kind of status. Either one that inflicts fear, despair, anger or hatred among other nin. The ones listes usually have done an achievement that caused them to become known, thus become listed in the Bingo Book. This doesn't mean that they have a ransom on their head, but are sometimes people to watch out. People that are regarded as a threat or highly dangerous.
        Only however, Jounin and ANBU ranked have a bingo book. Lower ranked don't usually have access to the Bingo Book.

        How it works?
        Simple. When a shinobi has achieved something, their deeds sometimes can travel around, as some people will start to talk about their achievements or deeds. This causes them to gain some fame and glory. Though keep in mind that it works like a double edged blade. You may be able to kill a high ranked nin of another village and you may get feared for it, but also hated. While you can use this to instill fear into the hearts of your enemy, beware that they mostly also know a thing or two. Depending on what the Bingo Book has listed on you.
        To climb in the 'ranks' of the Bingo Book, one needs to do achievements. What those are? Depends. Whether you killed a high ranked nin of another village, managed to defeat something or what ever that gained you fame can get you something as an achievement.

        Keep in mind that this however just a sub-thing. It may effect the IC, but its not areason to try to kill another player(s) character. Its just something to give a bit of depth to the Roleplay!

  2. Explaining some roles :

    Each role will be named and behind will said in which village the role is present. Over time a role can be invoked by the leader(s) of a village as well vanish if it has been vacant for too long. A leader can always invest somebody in a new seat in order to try to improve the management of a village or country.


    Do notice that not all roles are given or being governed by high ranked combat orientated shinobi or characters!

    There is a difference between a high ranked role and a higher up role. A high ranked role is a person in charge or having a rather prestigous role, with either just a renown/honorific use or with some privileges. A higherup is a role that is part of the highest council of a village, often offering advises on many subjects to the ruler and leader of a village.


    • Spy Master :
      Sort of rank : Higher up role
      Currently : Kimi Iomaski
      This office makes the appointed person the commander of the intelligence gathering teams. A position that is regarded quite secretive and only given to very trustworthy or capable people. Most likely those who know how spy teams and units work or capable of managing them.

      Guard Commander :
      Sort of rank : Higher up role
      Currently : vacant
      This office makes the appointed person the commander of the police corps within a village. Often this is also the person who is acting as a judge and helper in maintaining the law and order. This positions however varies in might and influence, depending on the leader's decision as some Guard Commanders can act more than just as a commander and some are nothing more than ordering around the police corps. The difference can be seen if it is 'higher ranked' or 'higher up'. (Ranked are often simple commanders and Up are more influential.)

      Jounin Commander :
      Sort of rank : Higher up role
      Currently : Takeshi Shun
      A person that holds the position of Jounin commander is appointed as the general or second in command, underneath the respective kage of the village, as the commander over the regular forces. This shouldn't be confused with the police and ANBU forces, but rather the regular military shinobi corps and divisions. In times of peace a jounin commander can send squads on missions and in times of war can lead together with a kage the military, often being on the frontlines or near it.



    • The roles within the Empire of Akino, divided among Konohagakure and Amegakure.



      • ANBU Commander :
        Sort of rank : Higher up role
        Currently : Meisa Ichi
        This office makes the appointed person the commander of the ANBU. This means that other than the Kage, the commander has the right to lead the ANBU division as the second hand of the Kage, sending them out on missions and such. This is a position that should be given to those who can be trusted as it is a highly secretive position.

        Jounin Commander :
        Sort of rank : Higher up role
        Currently : Zakito Hon
        A person that holds the position of Jounin commander is appointed as the general or second in command, underneath the respective kage of the village, as the commander over the regular forces. This shouldn't be confused with the police and ANBU forces, but rather the regular military shinobi corps and divisions. In times of peace a jounin commander can send squads on missions and in times of war can lead together with a kage the military, often being on the frontlines or near it.

        Diplomatic/Peace Council:
        Sort of rank : Advising council role
        Currently : Aiko, Suzaku and Hisoka
        The Diplomatic/Peace council is a gathered group of people that have been assigned to advise the leader on the subjects as diplomacy and governing the lands. This regards topics as laws, justice and other decisions that might need some counseling. They are often people who have gained the respect and trust of the ruler as one might consider this also a honor to be requested in such an important council. Even though it might not be on the same par as that of a Higher up council.

        War Council:
        Sort of rank : Advising council role
        Currently : Jounin commander, Kensuke Nimatsu, Hiroshi and Hiron.

        A person that holds the position of Jounin commander is appointed as the general or second in command, underneath the respective kage of the village, as the commander over the regular forces. This shouldn't be confused with the police and ANBU forces, but rather the regular military shinobi corps and divisions. In times of peace a jounin commander can send squads on missions and in times of war can lead together with a kage the military, often being on the frontlines or near it.




    • Kage Assistant:
      Sort of rank : Higher up role
      Currently : Asami Sanosuke
      The assistent of the Kage is a person that has been chosen due their skills. They are often highly trusted and deemed capable people, able to help a leader with their advise. This means that they are often quite knowledgeable or at least have sources to know or learn what their leader needs to know. They are often regarded as the second hand of the kage or somebody who is close to them.

      Jounin Commander :
      Sort of rank : Higher up role
      Currently : Nariko Jun
      A person that holds the position of Jounin commander is appointed as the general or second in command, underneath the respective kage of the village, as the commander over the regular forces. This shouldn't be confused with the police and ANBU forces, but rather the regular military shinobi corps and divisions. In times of peace a jounin commander can send squads on missions and in times of war can lead together with a kage the military, often being on the frontlines or near it.

      ANBU Commander :
      Sort of rank : Higher up role
      Currently : Vacant
      This office makes the appointed person the commander of the ANBU. This means that other than the Kage, the commander has the right to lead the ANBU division as the second hand of the Kage, sending them out on missions and such. This is a position that should be given to those who can be trusted as it is a highly secretive position.

      Spy Master :
      Sort of rank : Higher up role
      Currently : Kaizen ‘Kai’ Kyosū
      This office makes the appointed person the commander of the intelligence gathering teams. A position that is regarded quite secretive and only given to very trustworthy or capable people. Most likely those who know how spy teams and units work or capable of managing them.

      Guard Commander :
      Sort of rank : High ranked role
      Currently : Hikyo
      This office makes the appointed person the commander of the police corps within a village. Often this is also the person who is acting as a judge and helper in maintaining the law and order. This positions however varies in might and influence, depending on the leader's decision as some Guard Commanders can act more than just as a commander and some are nothing more than ordering around the police corps. The difference can be seen if it is 'higher ranked' or 'higher up'. (Ranked are often simple commanders and Up are more influential.)

      - Trained weapon users,

      - Members wear a black garb that give their organization and department their name.

      History

      The Black Guard have been organized and run since the days of the First Raikage. Supporting the regular shinobi branch at first as a splint - border patrol department, the Black Guard started to gain a more independent system. This led that they would operate more on their own, keeping an eye on the movements at the border in order to secure Kumogakure as first line of defense.

      Presently, the corps has expanded to guarding the borders of not only the Lightning country, but to all the borders of Kumogakure and the territory that is being governed. Though they are an efficient organization, knowing the ups and downs on how to combat smugglers and keeping the borders clean, they aren't that well known among the other departments.

      Traditions
      To be selected as recruited into the Black Guard requires a good screening. Then they are more selected on their abilities, being either good in tracking or moving in some way undetected. Most of the members are then given a rigorous training to improve their combat capabilities, but the corps is clearly more focused on tracking and such fields.


      Relations with other organizations
      Serves as independent border patrol corps, more often working alone than cooperating with other corps.

    Empire of Akino

    Akinian/Imperial Military Uniform (open)


    The Akinian military supports the headband where not the crest is shown of the individual villages, which are now most often the capital of a province in the Empire. Instead it shows the crest of a sun, much as this example.

    The regular forces also have an unified design of their jacket. The ANBU follow the traditional Konohagakure style, but there are several specialized units that have a different uniform. These are often small sized units that have been either organised or been given permission as support from the Akinian military to function.

    The flak jacket of the regular forces - color is dark green :
    [​IMG]
    *Once more thanks to RoranHawkins for drawing this.

    Several features :
    - Even though a nin from Ame and Konoha - or from any province of the Empire - wear the same jacket, you can see and spot that one if from Ame by seeing the old Ame headband symbol on the lower part of the jacket.
    - The neck guard and shoulder pads are detachable. This means that you could potentially still wear any more reinforced/sturdier shoulder pads (as some characters do) with the jacket. And if you don't like your neck to be guarded from any foes that want to stab or hack at it, then you can remove the neck guard.
    - The material of the jacket is the same as the previous models, meaning optimal protection without hindering the mobility of the wearer.
    - In some areas, the uniform has been used in combination with means of operation and surroundings. Ame nin for example will still wear rain coats over their jackets, due to the climate/weather.

    Every shinobi in the Fire Province is also equipped with the earphone communicator.

    Konoha Earphone Communicator

    Name of Weapon or Item:
    Konoha earphone communicator
    Description:
    A convenient communicator that enables better communication in and between teams. The communicator is small and designed to not cause any irritation for the user. It has some stations, each for a specif group.
    The range/radius to which messages and communication can be held with the use of the communicators is about 2.5 km wide.

    Channel A :
    Is for the team, thus everything that is said in station A will only be transferred and heard by those within the team.

    Channel B :
    Is for every other team in the 2.5 km radius. It will enable and provide communication to Konoha teams and thus enables better teamwork for when two or more teams are in each other radius, which can lead that more missions will have a higher chance of success.

    Channel C:
    This is only available for Jounins and leaders of teams. The C station provides communication for leaders of teams, without thus the problem that can be caused if the students also talk through the communicator. It will mostly be used for leaders of teams to direct their teams better in a synchronized attack or movement etc.




    • Leader's rank/title :
      ANBU commander
      Recruitment information :
      Selected and offered to promising members, the person's profile as background will be fully checked before being offered a place among the ANBU. Trained in other outposts, the ANBU are being more trained to become disciplined agents of the Imperial Military, focused often on subterfuge, assassination and espionage than the regular force are.

      Unlike the regular shinobi force, the ANBU are using the basic Konohagakure 'model' of gear. The only difference that ANBU are allowed to have is for example to easier adapt to their surroundings, such as a raincoat for Ame ANBU.


    • Leader's rank/title :
      Jounin commander
      Recruitment information :
      Due the size and different of cultures, traditions and such, the Empire reformed the way how they recruit their shinobi as other military personal. Progressing the system of the outposts that have been in use ever since of the Fire Union, the Imperial recruitment system works in a similar manner.
      Instead of however recruiting only volunteers and educating them at the small outposts and the majority at the Academies in the large province capitals, the Imperial recruitment system is focusing more on providing training and education of shinobi outside these capitals. This does however only affect the way on how academy students will be trained and educated, providing a more reliable way for recruiting and educating the youngest of shinobi recruits. Directly this is also a way to ensure that they are being taught with more loyalty towards the Empire of Akino, as taught about the manners and traditions of the other provinces than just the one where they grow up in.

      In the Academy the tutors will make some observations as more tests will be arranged. This is to determine in which corpse and such a recruit should enroll in. Though genin will be placed mostly into the regular forces, the reports on how they have performed together with the further reports during their time as genin can either lead that they progress as normal chuunin or be assigned to other departments.

      Operating information :
      As regular shinobi have been doing before. Team and squad leaders are assigned with a task or job from a superior and else can be requested. Sometimes more 'delicate' missions as operations are been given by the Jounin commander and in very rare cases by even higher ranked officials.
      The uniform for the regular shinobi vary from each province. The only common they have is when the nation is in conflict/at war that they are required to don on the system with the straps, to make it easier to identify the rank of a member of the regular shinobi corps.


    • Leader's rank/title :
      Captain Commander
      Recruitment information :
      Unlike the other department recruitment manners, the Royal Guard is recruited in a different manner. Unlike the regular shinobi corps, the potential recruits of the Sworn Swords are being enlisted from the pool of academy students at the age of seven. This selection is done on base of the family's background and the child itself. If there are any reports or archives pointing out about a missing nin or other 'accidents' then the child won't be considered as potential recruit for the Sworn Swords. The review of the child is done by looking if it is a member of a clan and if it is in any succession line, as it is dictated that members of the Sworn Swords aren't allowed to inherit clan or family titles, to ensure their loyalty more.

      Trained at one of the three specialized (training) camps, a recruit undergoes a heavy amount of training, starting to discipline the youth as well starting to educate them in what is expected from them as member of the Royal Guard. This may sound the same as to what regular Academy students undergo, but the recruits at these training camps are also being educated further and won't be assigned to any missions until they have finished their education. This can last easily till the recruit is 16~18. From that time, the recruit will be going on missions and tasks that are also assigned to regular shinobi forces and teams. Once a trainee has reached the age of 23~25 and proven him/herself as capable member, they are being allowed to enroll into the Sworn Swords.

      Operating information :
      Sworn Swords are however not just a public elite force that is only following commands of the ruler. They are also split into agents that work undercover for their commander and ruler, using their shinobi skill and experience to be more capable of fending off assassinations. And of course also be able to perform assassination assignments when ordered.

      In public the Sworn Swords uniform may vary. Those who shown openly that they are members were often armor of very highly quality. The Sworn Swords that operate as the agents, can vary. From what seem to be civilians to mere merchants, they adapt themselves to what they find necessary to pose as.

    • Leader's rank/title :
      Captain Commander
      Recruitment information :

      The Tiger Claw works in the same manner in recruitment as the royal guard - the Sworn Swords.

      Operating information :
      The difference between the Tiger's Claw and Sworn Swords is that the unit is highly mobile. With the war steeds of the Kusanagi clan and some of the own breeding stock of the Empire, the unit is designed as similar to a dragoon unit. Their main task is to protect the ruler and the prominent members of the ruling dynasty, but due to their high mobility, it isn't rare that they are send out to help maintain peace and order in turbulent times.

    • Leader's rank/title :
      Chief of the Police
      Recruitment information :
      The police corps in the Akinian Empire isn't only build up from shinobi. They are one of the few organizations that also rely on non-shinobi members that try to uphold the law. With police officers and detectives that are able to use ninjutsu, which are mostly based around barrier/seal and sensory.
      Operating information :
      The police corps of the Empire are allowed to arrest and hold suspected, if they have sufficient evidence. Operating in various numbers, they recognized by their blue jackets with a white shield on the back. While not as armed and equipped as the regular shinobi force, they are these days more independent. When required, they will request aid from the regular shinobi corps to help them out.

      Information is often more worth than gold."

      Name :
      The Zero Team(s)
      Crest :
      None.

      Location
      The Organization doesn't have a headquarters. One could pressume (if knowing that they even exist) is that it could be the Intelligence Division HQ or some other high secured location within Konohagakure.

      Village
      Konohagakure/Empire of Akino.

      Traits
      * Highly drilled into acting as they are needed to lie and pretend that they are somebody who they aren't.
      * Good intellect and knowing details, history and other vital information about the location they are infiltrating.
      * Often good in reading people as their training is more focused on getting information in any kind of way, that is possible.
      * Having a hidden cursed mark that can't be changed by the Faceless technique. The cursed mark is hidden away underneath the skin at the back of a member.

      History
      The history of the Zero teams is more shrouded than the classified information of the ANBU. Unlike their ANBU-counterparts, the Zero Team members don't operate just only for the Hokage. They serve the interest of the (now Empire of Akino) Leaf and thus can be ordered by higher ups instead of a single one. There hasn't been much recorded history about the Zero Teams and due the fact that not a lot of people even know that they exist leads to speculations that they have been a spy organization for a long time.

      It is unsure what kind of impact the information provided by the Zero Teams had on certain events, but it is clear that they have managed to keep operating under quite some secrecy.

      Members
      It is hard to tell who is a member of the Zero Team or even an ex member. With the two techniques the members of the Zero Team have often managed to trick those who would wish to hunt them down or when they want to vanish.
      Those who have been revealed IC-wise are :
      Saki Yamanaka : Ex member.

      Techniques
      All the members are being drilled into knowing these two techniques. They are non-combat techniques as it is safe to assume that not every Zero-Team member is qualified for combat situations. They are spies and gather intel, not every single one of them is a highly trained assassin that could whim you out with his/her toenails.

      Name of Technique: Secret Art: Faceless
      Type of Jutsu: Ninjutsu, Hiden
      Rank: B
      Range: Self
      Nature Type: N/A
      Handseals: 4, ending in snake - When mastered completely, none
      Description: This is a technique that was by a Zero Team member, though it’s unknown when he did it as his real face isn’t definitively known either. It’s an advanced form of the Transformation Technique that allows the user to take any human form for extended amounts of time without needing focus to maintain it. With each use, the chakra system’s color and signature changes, making it unrecognizable to sensors and sharingan/byakugan users, as it changes the user’s physiology completely.

      These days it is a technique that most, if not all, members of the organization use.
      Weakness: This technique can be overridden, but it can’t be undone.

      ====================
      Name of Technique: Secret Art: Fake Double
      Type of Jutsu: Ninjutsu, Hiden
      Rank: C
      Range: Contact
      Nature Type: N/A
      Handseals: 6, the first four the same as ‘Faceless’ and the last two rat and tiger - When mastered completely, none
      Description: This technique is derived from the ‘Faceless’ technique, so one most have some mastery over that technique first to learn this one, but Fake Double is much easier to master. It allows the user to change another person’s physiology like they can do to themselves. It has been used by many Zero Team members to fake their aliases deaths.
      Weakness: It can’t be used on beings with chakra in them.

      Traditions
      None known so far. Other than that an ex-member often has troubles with moving back into a life of their own after a service where they were multiple personalities. This can causes stress and often panic attacks, not to say that it either often triggers a Zero member to hurry back to their previous occupation or having to deal with the PST that can come in all forms. Often depending on the ex-member.

      Relations with other clans/organizations
      Sometimes the Zero Teams work with the ANBU or even members of the regular military. They however never tell anything more than needed and most often come over a bit shady or strange towards the other branches of the Imperial military.

      Team number :
      Konohagakure Team 2.

      Short history :
      Team 2 was first formed and led by Kanajiro Hanamoto. It was a team that scored above average, mostly for having some talented genins in the team that were able to progress by training by themselves. This gave the first few Team 2 formations a status that they were kind of more independent than most teams.

      However, with Kanajiro showing his less potent side, he soon would lose his position as a sensei. On which he soon disappeared afterwards. The oldest member of the team that is left alive from this early formation was Yumi Hasewaga. With Yumi however becoming a part of the ANBU squadron, Kiyomi was soon assigned to become the newest sensei and leader of the team. Under her lead, she would have several students but only two so far keep remaining to keep her expectations high enough that she doesn't dismiss them. Both are boys that also have known and worked a lot with Kiyomi in the past. Leo Hasewaga, the younger half sibling of Yumi, and Hayate Hyuzu of the Hyuzu clan.

      Current status
      Operating, with first and second in command system.
      Manner of training :
      Kiyomi try to train her student most of the time herself. Else the students of Team 2 have been known to train themselves or requesting some help of another capable person.

      Sensei's opinion on students :

      Hayate Hyuzu - Second in Command

      "Like Leo, he has an attitude that shows how Team 2 is. Loyal, disciplined and strong. Hayate is a shinobi that isn't the type to rush in and with his versatile manner of fighting and adapting to a situation or enemy, I dare to predict as well that he will be a splendid shinobi."

      Tatsuya Hon
      "A genin that shows promising talents, but one that needs to be properly guided. Unlike others from Team 2, he will need some special training due what he holds inside of him. Other than that, he shows the natural traits that a true Hon Shinobi has. Hopefully I can provide the guidance he needs to proceed in a way that will benefit him as others."

      Score of the students
      By the sensei;

      Teamwork : 4/5
      Close ranged : 4/5
      Mid ranged : 3/5
      Long ranged : 2/5
      Discipline : 4/5

      Manner of training :
      Team Masaru trains on a more individual base. Unlike the previous Team 6 formations, the current one focuses on their own skill. With the members being more independent shinobi than genin who need guidance, they often seek their own way to train and improve themselves. Though the team has exercises and training together, they often operate their training on their own manner. Sometimes with guidance and sometimes without.
      Sensei's opinion on students :

      Katsu Uchiha - Stealth Sensor

      A loyal and courageous person. From personal experience I can say he can be a bit stubborn, but he knows when he can or can't do what he wants. His varied skills and abilities are a boon for the team, giving the team some advantage when there is a need for some short ranged scouting as detecting chakra made traps.

      Saki Yamanaka - The Ghost of the Mist and Rain
      Combine the Hidden Yamanaka abilities, archery, sensory ninjutsu, stealth and intelligence gathering at an amazing level and you got Saki Yamanaka. An very experienced kunoichi, home in knowing how to take out targets before they are even aware that they are about to blow out their final breath. Her sensory ninjutsu are able to pick out ambushes and serves greatly on recon missions and operations.

      Momo Hana - Ranged Combat Supportive
      The Team's weapon expert. With her abilities, she is a valuable combative supportive member. Unlike most of the team, she is at the moment the only one who is more at home with the mid and long range distance in a fight. Her ability to also store convenient items and supplies make it easier for the team to stay mobile and not be dragged down too much.

      End : Assigned to the village of Nanporo after the operation in the said village.

      Kazuo Kei - Lightning Blade
      A skilled kenjutsu that combines his lightning nature with his kendo. Together with his leopard and some of his own skill, I would say that Kazuo is the vanguard of our team. Though some of his skills allow him to fall in with Katsu and my own stealth approaches. After reading his profile, I must add that I think he and I can understand each other quite well...

      Rules of the Team :

      1. ''Be covered in shadow and stay your breath.
      Lie in wait for your target to let down its guard.''


      2.''Be in sync with your target. Anticipate its thoughts and actions.
      But don't let them anticipate yours.''


      3.''Before your target becomes aware of your presence.
      Aim to kill.

      Not to spare.''


      Team song :
      General

      Short history :
      Team 8 has been around for some time, formed and led from the start by Aiko Cho-Hon. The team always had a close focus on close to mid range specialized students, that are often able to be more independent than most regular nin. In the short history the most notable things are that in a formation it once was composed with the host of the Kyuubi. The Team is starting to build up the reputation for bringing forth shinobi who are trained in the more stealthy and poison than direct confrontation manners.
      Current status

      Manner of training :

      Team 8 usually does a team training, but Aiko also often takes one student for a private training. It is to give some more attention to a field or skill that a student of Team 8 needs to polish or improve. And though Aiko has a busy schedule outside of her team, she often is more than willing to try to arrange something or somebody to help to improve her team.

      Sensei's opinion on students :


      Hiraku Hyuuga:
      His hatred for his clan is almost as big as my expectation of him. Hiraku isn't as 'blind' as other Hyuuga. Instead, he is a caring and friendly person that tries to do the good thing while knowing what it is to be a shinobi. While he is currently at the rank of Chuunin, I doubt it is wise to underestimate him...

      Korina Kusanagi :

      Though still rough on the edges, Korina's adaption to the Empire has gone rather smooth. She shows that she's able to be independent and working on her own. With the latest development, she also shows what it is to be working in a team and makes my faith in her grow. She will be a fine kunoichi if I may be bold to say so.

      Tsukki Kiki
      Perhaps not the most talented genin all over the place, Tsukki is a sharp knife in the shed. Calm, polite and smart, I think that he will be able to become as good as the others on the team. His interest in assassination, poison and stealth makes me think he will be making up his current fighting capabilities for his other talents, growing into a good shinobi.

      Kazumo Sarutobi

      The Sarutobi is somebody that shares some resemblances with Tsukki on interests. He is already somewhat acquainted with stealth and poison as he is a hunter. I will try to help him in the genjutsu department as he has shown interest in it. With his current potential, I think he will be able to become a splendid shinobi.

      Miharu Hon :
      A rather cheerful and optimistic boy. He lacks talent, but tries to make it up with his intellect. Curious and rather innocent, I hope that I can shape and train him into becoming a shinobi. Without of course damaging as erasing that kindness that the boy has. He will need it as jinchuriki to win the trust of others...
      End : Miharu tried to mess with the seal and the result was that the boy entered a coma-state. His twin brother got traumatized.

      Koike Hon :
      Rather shy and more timid in comparison with the adventurous Miharu. Though many would think that Koike is lazier, he seems to be holding himself back. I suspect it is mainly because of his more shy nature and it will be something I'll need to work on. He has several talents, of that is sure, but they won't become useful for him as shinobi if he keeps holding himself back.
      End : Koike remained in Team 8's next formation of K-K-Y. Though... underwent some change due training and experiences.

      [​IMG]
      Koike Hon :
      A very loyal member of Team 8. Dates back from the first formation of the team. Though most would call him cold and distant, he is one of my most loyal and skilled student. One that doesn't back down from hard work or doing something against his preferences, Koike is a smart and clever shinobi that will make it far now that he doesn't hold himself back. Though...
      End : Koike became specialized jounin and soon was switched to Team 6 to lead the a team of chuunin.

      Katsu Uchiha :
      A very bright young genin. Though I need to see more, I can already conclude that Katsu is a very intelligent person, able to make good analyzes of a situation and has a good taste for teamwork and team spirit. I am however worried that he doesn't look with enough confidence at himself as he hasn't shown yet any pride in himself, though it suits him to be modest.
      End : Katsu became a chuunin and soon after was switched to Team 6/Masura due his outstanding teamwork with Koike Hon.

      Yukara Cho
      A member of my own clan, Yukara has shown already some skill that fills me with pride to know she is one of my kin. Though she is often quick to judge, she has shown loyalty at the same time and a good knack at some ninjutsu fields. I think she will do more than fine as she has some nice talents.
      End : Yukara was send to Kumogakure due the exchange treaty between Akino and Kumogakure, in exchange for Korina Kusanagi.


      Formation : K-M-Y-U
      Leader :
      Aiko Cho-Hon

      Korina Kusanagi :
      Born in the northern lands of the Lightning country, Korina is a rather interesting student. Ignoring the cultural differences and customs that separate her from the other students, her fighting style is mostly an opposition of my own. This doesn't make her less than having potential, because she has more than enough of that.
      Ending : Stayed in the team, got promoted to Chuunin.

      Matsuri Hyuuga:
      A most interesting student. Due to some missions she had lost her left eye, which became replaced by a sharingan eye. Her status as an ex missing nin - needed to be dragged back by a team - makes me wary of her, but I'll see if I can do something to try to mentor her in the 'right' direction.
      End : Resigned from the shinobi forces after ending up as a dead weight.

      Yukara Cho
      Though a fellow Cho, having the common talent in water ninjutsu and stealth, I fear that Yukara's bad habit of quick to judge will be something I will need to work on. She has potential, but it is blocked by the constant strive of wanting to surpass people who are different orientated than her.
      Ending : Was send to Kumogakure with some other people as agreed on the exchange program between Akino and Kumogakure.

      Motto:

      "Never trust a smile from anybody."
      Team Info (open)
      Team number :
      9

      Short history :
      Team 9 history of being formed is being traced all back to several years back, before the imminent attack of the Kyuubi on Konohagakure. The team has known several formations, but has been holding the record of being one of Konoha's most disciplined teams under the leadership of Hiron Hon. With their grim reputation, the team has also brought forth several good examples of chuunin.

      One the few feats of the team is that it has served in the Third Division in the short Suna-Konoha and Kumo alliance war. They were the division that intercepted the enemy forces and ambushed them, leading the way open for the two other Division to strike at the main forces of the enemy. Other than that, the team is still being seen as a place where one can get be trained in a way to succeed both in a shinobi career as to get past the Exams. At least alive.
      Current status
      Alive and going on.
      Manner of training :
      It isn't just for the past characters that have been grim, disciplined and cold towards their goal and enemies that gave the team the infamous name in Konohagakure. It is their training as well. While some sensei tend to hold back, Hiron merciless test and trains his students. If they aren't able to keep up, they are being pushed until they can or resign from the team. Though it also has gained some dislike from others, Team 9 has proven to be efficient when it comes to training.

      These days it is however less grim and harsh than before due the newest formation, but even so. The team still holds up to the grim training regime it gets from their current sensei.
      Sensei's opinion on students :

      Masami Hyuuga

      ''I have great expectations from her. Not because she is a Hyuuga and has shown some individual skills that I am content with. No, it is because of her records. She has been the student of some names that make me believe she must be good. I will see if she has the mentality and guts to keep up with the Team's regime and discipline that comes with it. Even while she is a friend of my daughter, I will not be sparing her from anything that the others have to endure.''

      Shikaroku Nara
      ''I know that I can be confident about my own wit and tactical insight, having earned my jounin rank with mostly showing that. But this boy is something else. Though I am slightly wondering how he will turn out with his profile showing some troubles for him to become a well functioning shinobi, he has shown the ability and skill to see through some of my training and tactics. I will be interested to see how he will continue to strive for progress, against the odds he is facing at the moment.''

    Republic of Kirigakure


    Ω Republic of Kirigakure Ω

    • Leader's rank/title :
      ANBU commander
      Recruitment information :
      Selected and offered to promising members, the person's profile as background will be fully checked before being offered a place among the ANBU. Trained in other outposts, the ANBU are being more trained to become disciplined agents of the Imperial Military, focused often on subterfuge, assassination and espionage than the regular force are.
      The Kirigakure ANBU have designed a technique that is only granted to the ANBU that have proven their worth and loyalty to the state.
      Name of Technique:
      Secret Kirigakure Technique : Silent Assassination Technique
      Type of Jutsu:
      Ninjutsu
      Rank:
      A
      Range:
      Short
      Nature Type:
      N/A (Advanced mastery over Silent Killing is required)
      Handseals:
      Tiger, Rat, Ram, Dog, Dragon, Boar, Seal of Confrontation
      Description:
      A special technique that has been designed by the ANBU that had served underneath the Fourth Mizukage. Some were given this if they had truly followed the orders of the mission where they were required to show their loyalty to the Fourth Mizukage.
      This techniques gives the user the temporary boost of heighten reflexes as they then closes in with their targets. In their vision every will turn to a more uncolored/black and white view. In this state the user will be able to use their expertise on taijutsu and heighten reflexes to predict movements of their foes as they aim to strike them down.
      Weakness:
      The user needs to have great self control, as the black and white vision can sometimes distract them as the world will look unreal. Even for masters of this technique, it can be pretty disturbing to see the world in such a manner. Not to mention that the technique exhaust quite some stamina and chakra, making it not a technique that one should use without considering other options. Though not really mandatory, Silent Killing is required as the technique had been developed to quickly ends one's life. As quickly as possible.

      Village
      Kirigakure, under the leadership of the Jounin commander.

      Traits
      * Highly trained and experienced in taijutsu and most in short side-arms,
      * Trained in quick hit and run tactics in more dense urban or difficult terrain,
      * Good trackers and in launching ambushes.
      * Knowledgeable about the tenketsu and how to use it against a person.
      History
      The Demon Sharks are an unit that stems from the foundation of Kirigakure. Over the course of its history, the unit has seen a lot of reformations. During the reign of the First and Second Mizukage, it was a check against shinobi forces. They had back then a proud and short history of serving with pride. Only during the Third Mizukage, the unit became corrupted. Instead of serving as fail-safe against missing nin with non-shinobi, the Demon Sharks started to become like the ANBU a personal 'tool' for the Third Mizukage. It happened frequently that the unit was being used to capture political enemies in the middle of the night. Only to never be heard of them again.
      During the Fourth, this situation didn't improve and while there were people who wanted to join the Demon Sharks - out of desire to serve and protect their home - it didn't change. Change only started to be invoked with the reign of the Fifth Mizukage, though the stained reputation of the Demon Sharks wouldn't really change a lot. It was during that time that the unit started to patrol the streets in civilian clothing, to not stir up unrest or making people afraid. With this change it also happened that the Demon Sharks would be more focused on helping the police force of the land, starting to also be granted more establishments over the whole country instead of just Kirigakure.
      After the Revolution, the unit started to gain more changes. As the Republic would be established, the person who hold the office of jounin commander became appointed the leader of the Demon Sharks.

      Handseals:
      N/A
      Description:
      This is a fighting style that has been developed by the Demon Sharks that involve taijutsu that is aimed to disable the opponent to use ninjutsu. It is already tedious to weave handsignals when a person is trying to bash your face in, but the people that serve the Demon Sharks have formed a fighting style that uses a similar use to that of the Gentle Fist. The only difference is that they use only one hand to guide their chakra in a wider radius to force a chakra point of an opponent to be closed.
      Weakness:
      The fact that they just use a wider radius, they use more chakra than an user of Gentle Fist would use. The fighting style revolves around to close the chakra point, thus in terms of damage it won't be that effect in killing a person.

      Gear and equipment
      The Shark Demons are a covert unit in terms that they use disguises in order to keep order and provide the jounin commander with information. When they perform an 'arrest' they are geared in their uniform and use all kind of equipment. Tear gas, smoke bombs and thick strong square formed shields. They use mostly their taijutsu to take down a hostile target after they have used tear gas or smoke bombs to arrest them. They are however also trained in weapon use in case the hostiles don't need to be captured...

      Relations with other clans/organizations
      - Serving as members of the Regular Military, thus under the command of the Jounin commander.

      * Highly perceptive
      * Members able to multitask with great focus
      * Capable sensors
      * Competent silent killers and Taijutsu users
      History:
      The Shadow Sharks were previously a gang of Genjutsu users who went by the name of the Phantom Shinobi due to their use of the Shinobi arts, as well as their tendency to disappear just as quickly as they appeared. Most of their crimes consisted of theft, not that one could blame them in the poor state that has been Kirigakure for years. They mostly went after the most valuable looking items to then sell off to the more wealthy people of Kirigakure who weren’t informed said items were stolen. After a mission involving Daiki Shun and Hiroshi Akiyama, a meeting was established between the Jounin Commander and the group, which ended in a deal. For the freedom of the group they would pledge their services to Kirigakure, in exchange the group wanted a decent pay, as well as the service of Kirigakure best medical-nin to save the life of Abel’s ill sister. That medical-nin was no other than one of the best that seemed to reside within Kirigakure, Adolf Kahler Kappel Kalbfleisch Kästner Kassmeyer III.
      Members:
      Out of twenty members the most notable one is the leader, Able Acosta, someone who is considered a master in the use of Genjutsu. He has trained each and every member of the Shadow Sharks gaining their respect and trust, as well as companionship, to the point they will not hesitate to follow an order of his. Meaning if he has his loyalty pledged to Kirigakure, so do they, and that loyalty is something that cannot be broken.

      History:
      A relatively new unit formed together by the minds of both Hiro Akiyama and Adolf themselves, though Adolf takes most of the credit of putting the unit together and organizing it. The unit is divided into two divisions of medics and combat-medics. Both are competent in the field medical-ninjutsu, but what sets them apart is that medics have more knowledge in the field of medical treatment. This means humans and animals alike, as well as having more techniques to further their medical prowess which includes long-range healing and mass-group healing. Meanwhile, while combat-medics also show prowess in medical treatment, they are also used to provide support to troops with their own prowess in Taijutsu, added with their knowledge of the human body, it makes them quite deadly fighters.
      Members:
      The most notable member of this unit is the leader, a man by the name of Adolf Kahler Kappel Kalbfleisch Kästner Kassmeyer III, but he only tells people it’s Adolf. Less time is wasted that way, and if it’s one thing Adolf is about then it’s time.

    • Village
      Kirigakure
      History
      The history of what was once the Seven Swordsmen is shrouded in myths, legends and folklore. One of the popular tales is that the swords were presented to the First Mizukage by the Unknown Master Smith. The creation of the blades is even more mysterious, because so far the design and abilities were during the early days of Kirigakure unique to the world. A story to scare the children goes that human souls were sacrificed in order to smith these fine blades and that if a child misbehaves that the Unknown Master Smith will come for theirs.
      During the founding of the Mist the most trustworthy and capable were handed a blade. It was something of prestige and trust to wield a blade, making the wielder often known all around the country. The infamy that the unit would gain was during the Great War, where the wielders were fierce combatants along side the First and Second Mizukage. Though some stories go that some wielders were able to fight a whole platoon of enemy forces, they were mostly a morale bolster and a source of dread among the enemy.
      Their downfall during the Great War was during the battle of the Hon Estate, where enemy forces came to relieve the siege on the stronghold. Though they had put up a good fight and didn't go down without selling their hide for an expensive price, the Seven Swordsmen's reputation started to become less grand afterwards. Though Kirigakure managed to keep their blades, the unit wouldn't be as it once was.
      Corruption found its way to the once proud protectors of the Mist, causing them to become pawns of the Mizukage instead of proud guardians that served with the Mizukage - as the First Mizukage had intended. As the Fifth Mizukage, Rika Suzu, usurped the power from the Fourth Mizukage the unit was even disbanded. What was an act to get rid of the corruption caused only more damage to the reputation of the Swordsmen of the Mist. While they kept a dreaded reputation among the rivals of the Mist, the unit suffered only a worse fate. Masuba Miyazawa, the last Kirigakure native that wielded Samehada, tried to assassinate Rika. Help of Hiroshi Genji, a wielder of Hiramekarei, prevented it and Masuba fled out of the country with a broken arm to the Lightning Country. He managed to accomplish this with some contacts as well the reign of the Fourth Raikage didn't improve the border security that well.
      Some time later the rumor would go that a young girl would be seen with the bandaged greatsword, eventually making it clear that this girl had defeated and killed Masuba. It would serve as another blow to the reputation of the Swordsmen of the Mist, marking their number to Six instead of Seven.
      During the Revolution, they didn't choose a side. Not wanting to damage their reputation further nor serve the person who had disbanded them and been a great source of their downfall, the remaining Swordsmen remained bitterly neutral in the civil conflict. Only with the efforts of Takeshi Shun did they come back to the village that they were sworn to protect.
      Now that the unit is back, the manner of operations has changed greatly. It is often more seen as an unit with traditional roots, but the owner of the blades are chosen by the council instead of granted out as the Mizukages did. Depending on what occupation is of the wielder, they serve still their respective commander. This means that if an ANBU would be wielding a blade, the wielder would still remain in the ANBU corps. Only because of their 'special' rank with being a member of the Swordsmen, it isn't rare that other commanders 'request' their help. However the Swordsmen hold the most responsibility to the Master of Swords, a title that is passed down on the respective leader of the Swordsmen.
      Traits
      * Quite infamous,
      The Six Swordsmen are a source of a legends, myths and tales for a good reason. A wielder is often regarded A ranked in the bingo books because of the fact that he/she has been granted to wield a blade.
      * Great kenjutsu/weapon users,
      Dedicating their life into wielding their respective blades, it is safe to assume that they're a force to be reckoned with. Depending on their blade, it isn't rare to see that some insert some of their own personal abilities with that of the blade.
      * A source of dread,
      Though the reputation of the Swordsmen has been tarnished heavily from their earlier days, which is evidenced in the fact that the unit has even lost what most considered the most terrifying of the blades, many still are quite wary for when they are even warned that a member of the unit is reported to be nearby.

    Non Regular character roster

    (Otherwise non as NPC characters)
    Even though they are regarded as NPC's, the owners still control and decide for them. They are however less protected by plot armor and aren't seen as important as a regular PC. However, don't make it a sport to hunt down other's NPC's and kill them. Rules are rules after all.

    They can also act as trainers and side-characters for player characters. It is also a possibility that a player character can become a NPC and vice versa. If you desire to make a PC into a NPC then just contact the GM team or if you want vice versa.






    Clan/Organization Roster


    Scattered clans,

    These clans are scattered, thus not focused in a single village or country. They are often either clans with a history that explains why and how they became shattered or there are just a few individuals that have the same kind of special ability or Kekkei Genkai that is considered rare.

    Hasewaga Clan/Crystal Release
    - current clan leader/owner : Lesli

    Note that many cannon clans exist, but that some are being led by a person, indirectly or directly. Ask if you don't see the clan you want to join if you doubt it

    The size of clans are noted down from very small (just a few families) till very large ( large population as well a large area that they consider as their clan-lands). Size however doesn't make a clan more or less well known or prestigious! The size of the compound is often not set to the size of large clans, but the compounds of medium and larger clans are often comparable to smaller ones.


    Very small :
    These clans often are existing out a few families or less.

    Small :
    These clans are somewhat larger. Often having at least a small compound, but the limit often hanging around 1200~1500 clan members.

    Medium :
    These clans usually have a compound in the large cities. They often have also a more distinct set of traditions and a long history. They are often found to be much larger than small clans, with a size ranging from 1500~6.000 clan members. Its good to know that these clans quite often not all related in blood, but following the culture and traditions of the respective clan - which also applies to larger clans.

    Large :
    Large clans are those who have a compound and often some land outside that place. These clans are truly large and often are found to populating a certain area mostly by themselves. Going from a size that range between 6000~ 15.000 clan members.

    Very large :
    Clans which are truly large, usually these clans have reigned independently over a large area before the forming of the countries during the Warring Clans period. In these current times, these clans have a compound in the large 'hidden' cities or capitals of their nation as well being the dominant culture and group in their lands of old. Their size goes from 15.000 to more clan members.

  3. The Bingo & Data Book,
    (In)Famous shinobi.



    • [​IMG]

      The Bingo Book

      Introduction :
      This thread shows and lets you know about several shinobi who have gained a kind of status. Either one that inflicts fear, despair, anger or hatred among other nin. The ones listes usually have done an achievement that caused them to become known, thus become listed in the Bingo Book. This doesn't mean that they have a ransom on their head, but are sometimes people to watch out. People that are regarded as a threat or highly dangerous.
      Only however, Jounin and ANBU ranked have a bingo book. Lower ranked don't usually have access to the Bingo Book.
      How it works?
      Simple. When a shinobi has achieved something, their deeds sometimes can travel around, as some people will start to talk about their achievements or deeds. This causes them to gain some fame and glory. Though keep in mind that it works like a double edged blade. You may be able to kill a high ranked nin of another village and you may get feared for it, but also hated. While you can use this to instill fear into the hearts of your enemy, beware that they mostly also know a thing or two. Depending on what the Bingo Book has listed on you.
      To climb in the 'ranks' of the Bingo Book, one needs to do achievements. What those are? Depends. Whether you killed a high ranked nin of another village, managed to defeat something or what ever that gained you fame can get you something as an achievement.
      Keep in mind that this however just a sub-thing. It may effect the IC, but its not areason to try to kill another player(s) character. Its just something to give a bit of depth to the Roleplay!

    [​IMG]

    Personality: Despite her rather unpleasant past, Shika Yukimura is a rather upbeat girl. She loves making new friends but most people will notice in time that she never shares anything about herself, masking it with extra curiosity about her allies. She's lost her rebellious nature and follows the law to the w after what happened to her mother. To Shika, loyalty is an absolute must that transcends anything as trivial as what organization one belongs to. After witnessing her mother's death, Shika also resolutely follows the idea of a swift death for her enemies. Torture isn't even a thing reserved for the worst.

    Shika is not a forgiving person despite her apparent ability to get over her parents' fate. She just shuts out all bad memories that bother her, choosing to forget rather than forgive. She doesn't believe in natural talent, adamantly defending her idea that hard work and persistence trumps all. Having lived through reigns of the two notorious leaders of Kirigakure has left Shika rather distrustful of the government but she isn't taking any sides in the current conflict in Kirigakure. In fights, Shika loses her positive demeanor. She prefers attacking when the enemies are distracted, making her more of a supportive bursty fighter rather than a front-liner. She always aims to makes the fight as short as possible which means the enemy won't see any mercy from her.

    [​IMG]

    History: Shika Yukimura was born to two veterans of the Great War during the reign of Shouji Suzu. For the first two years of her life, Shika was exposed to war. This meant being shuttled from safe house to safe house and hearing the dying screams of Shinobi as opposed to her parent's coos. Though she would remember barely anything about the Great War, nothing changed the fact that it'd robbed her of a normal childhood. The signing of the treaty was a godsend and Shika's parents retired to tend to their rice paddy fields, as far away from violence as possible. However, Kang Nomonoto proved to be a harsh dictator, something which didn't sit right with Shika's parents. They hadn't fought for their country to be treated like slaves.

    They raised Shika up with that in mind, praising what little rebellious acts she committed be it not meeting her work quota or coming home after the curfew. However, they could not count on not getting any repercussions from their actions. One night, as Shika was returning home from a long day of harvesting, she found men loyal to Kang Nomonoto at her house. Her mother was cut down "to size" that night, leaving only her tongue behind to remind the household of their insolence. Faced with such a display, her father began to teach Shika his famed Kyūjutsu in an attempt to protect her. Shika was pushed back into line and further as Kang Nomonoto's men continually harassed the household, taking money, food, and heirlooms while dishing out beatings to each of them. Though Fumiyo Nagano's reign was a little better than Kang's, it was clear that their situation was not going to improve beyond that.

    Shika was sent to the Academy to get a formal education, as her father had been beaten too often to do much besides walk with a cane. It wasn't just the physical wounds as well - the death of his spouse had turned him into a shell of who he was. At the Academy, Shika focused on her studies to become a Genin as fast as possible. She wanted to help her father recover, not go on missions as a Kunoichi. She didn't quit the Academy out of obligation to her father, However once she had graduated, she found that her father was beyond help. Senile beyond his years, Hisao Yukimura barely remembered his daughter. Having been robbed of her main goal, Shika is now hesitatingly stepping into her own life.

    Appearance: signal heart.jpg

    [​IMG]

    Personality: Naname is a very shy girl at first but once you get to know her shes sweet and outgoing. Shes very protective over her friends and comrades, often sacrificing herself in some way to protect them if its necessary. She has a natural calm personality, good at keeping a clear head in tough situations, but when her temper snaps she can be a relentless demon. Shes very perceptive when it comes to others, having a natural talent for reading situations and others emotions, even if they try to hide them. She has a vicious stubborn streak when she puts her mind to something, but isnt beyond reason.

    [​IMG]

    History: Nobody really knows where Naname came from, she was found on the doorstep to a orphanage in Kirigakure at only 2 months old. She lived in the orphanage for 4 months before Hisoka and Miki adopted her, since they couldnt have children themselves. She was always a quiet child, never wanting to pick a fight or cause another person, or even animals, harm. She was always shy when it came to strangers, often hiding behind her father or mother whenever they came around until she got to know them.

    At age 4 Naname started showing interest in the way of the Shinobi, at first her parents were hesitant knowing full well the risks a Shinobi takes. But one Naname set her mind on something, it was near impossible to get her to stop. So they eventually relented and started helping her train to be a Ninja. To their surprise she had a natural talent for it, though she was weaker than most, she made up for it in speed and her heightened sense of perception. By age 6 she was quite skilled in Taijutsu and Ninja tools, for her age at least.

    At 8 her mother-Miki died of a rare disease, she had been sick for a long time before finally succumbing to it. Soon after Naname entered the Academy. She never really made any friends though, being to shy most people just ignored her, she was the kind that "Faded into the background". She did well in Taijutsu and Ninjutsu but she had no talent for Genjutsu. She failed the first graduation exam because of this so she had to wait another year before being able to take it again, thankfully she passed the 2nd time.

    Now shes a happy full-fledged Genin, though shes still fresh from the academy, shes looking forward to her new teammates and the missions to come.
