Greetings! Welcome to a brand new Roleplay that I hope will be enjoyable for everyone. The goal of this roleplay is for each player to take on the role of a member of the Rookie Nine starting the morning of the Academy Graduation. Canon history for each character is in place, but will allow for slight adjustments that would make sense in character. For example, Shino having knowledge of ROOT or Hinata already knowing how to Tree Walk. If it can be argued from a world state that they have these skills, I'll most likely allow it. I will be needing a minimum of eight other people to join as a genin, and would greatly prefer another three in order that we might have actual players take control of Kurenai, Kakashi, and Asuma. The Jounin Sensei's will act as assistant GM's. If we are unable to find a full twelve roleplayers for this RP, I will do my best to GM the Senseis. Additionally, the rookies are allowed full control over their families/clans. The player in control of Kiba will have full control of all Inuzuka characters for example. The story direction for this RP will be similar to canon, however it will deviate in both tone and direction as the plot progresses until it eventually becomes a true Alternate Universe. Tone will hopefully be more in line with the gruesome world of ninja and there will be no talk-no-jutsu/deus ex machina. On this note, anyone applying for the role of Naruto will be held to a higher standard in order to avoid Godmodding or the like. I will be playing the role of Sasuke in order to help with this. My goal is to develop the internal military system and political standings amongst the factions of Konoha. The genin will be trained as actual soldiers. This will allow for more interactions between the teams and character development. Every character will start with canon jutsu, but will be allowed to develop custom or canonical jutsu as it makes sense within the RP. One final note in order to shake things up a bit from canon, Teams will be a first come/first serve basis. Your character is not relegated to their canonical teams. For example Shikamaru could end up being on Team Seven with Hinata and Shino. In order to allow everyone the best possible choice, I'll choose my team last. Anyways, it is my hope that this will become a great story we can all develop together. Onto the rules! -All IWAKU Guidelines must be followed.-My word is law. I will always strive to hear everyone out and provide a drama-free forum, but at the end of the day I am in charge. -OOC drama/conflict is forbidden. If you are concerned about another player, please contact me privately and I will do my best to help resolve the situation. Let's keep the forum clear of such pettiness. -18+. This Roleplay will become somewhat dark and mature. Romance is freely allowed, but please fade to black during the actual forum. Take all sexy times to private chat. Sexy time is prohibited for genin until after they reach seventeen years of age. No underage erotic roleplay. -Quality. This RP is for at minimum, intermediate role players. -Posting. I request that all who join post a minimum of 3-5 paragraphs and do so bi-weekly. Players will be contacted at one week of inactivity and dropped at two weeks. Please let me know if something happens and you will not be able to post. Real life happens. -No God modding, OOC in the IC, or any other newbie RPer blunders. -Jounin/Naruto Applications. Jounin will be considered assistant GMs if chosen. The Jounin/Naruto application will be held to an advanced RP standard. -Players are limited to one character. Two are only allowed if playing both a Jounin and Genin. Players control the family members of each rookie. -Applications are to be submitted on this forum. -Custom Jutsu will be allowed as the RP progresses. I reserve the right to nullify any jutsu that is ridiculously overpowered.
