Survival of the Last (BBSW/Naruto)
« on: June 04, 2007, 06:05:05 PM »
Background
It is the time of the Sixth Hokage.   An alliance of villages (including Leaf and Sand) have gathered together to destroy once and for all the Lightning village.  A co-ordinated strike has lead to the destruction of the ninja of the land of lightning but has a terrible price as well.  Those few survivors of the destruction of the village have been cut off from the rest of the word and will need to band together to survive.

*****
Game Info:
The characters are the few remaining survivors of the battle, decendants of the characters in the series.  Yes, you can have any combination that strikes your fancy (even a one night stand can lead to a child, after all :P).

Use a standard 12 point build (defects are encouraged but will not get you any additional build points right away) when you create your character.  Any questions or thoughts, please share.   ;D

Edit: If you wanna play, please post here also!

Well, that's an interesting idea.

What would you say are the baseline levels of Combative and Mystical Knowledge you need to be a Naruto-style ninja?

For a Chunin, I'd have to say probably a 2 (out of 3).

Oh lord, BBSW?

Okay, I need to do this, it's just too crazy not to.

Assuming there's enough interest (we up to four players yet?) I'll go ahead and start this show up.    ;D ;)

An actual BBSW game.  Wow!  I've had fun going through the rules but never seen a game played.

Man that's tempting, but I'm so unreliable at posting frequency right now that I'd hate to bog you down.  Definitely will want to lurk.

Same here.  That's part of the reason I wanna do one.

And you should join, even if you're only going to be around sporatically.  I'm expecting that some of the characters are going to be injured as a result of the fighting that took place.   ;)

I'd be interested, though I'd need a few days to get invovled. End of the school year and all that.

Also, how much Naruto knowledge do you need? I know the basics, but I'm hardly an expert.

I only know the basics too.  It's not like we're going to be in the canon storyline.  ;)

Does anyone have a favorite Naruto page that might be good for explaining what's going on?

By the way, Hunter, is the Sixth Hokage Naruto?

Yup.

And I call dibs on a Naruto/Hinata child.   :P

Since there seems to be enough interest, I'll get a character thread going tonight.

Hunter, unless I'm reading the rules totally wrong, there's not actually a Mind stat (the line mentioning it early on is a throw-away gag).  That's what the Smart advantage is for.

You're not reading the rules wrong.  I'm changing it slightly so that there IS a Mind stat and it's used to resist seduction attempts. Why you'd resist, I don't know....   ;D

I guess mathematically it's no different than increasing the Intelligence advantage.  And helpful if anyone wants to play Shikamaru's kid.

I'll try to get a character together a little later.

Honestly, it's because resisting seduction with body makes no sense to me.

Not to me, either.

But then, neither does gaining immense power (i.e. XP) by having tons of sex.  (This is seriously the only game ever where someone might min/max sexual encounters.)

It IS a hentai game.  ;)  Now go post your character already so we can get this party started.

Not that it's my place, but I had to comment.... nothing says you're resisting seduction like a swift kick in the pills...  ;D

Which, now that I think about it, I might actually do.  Need to think about concepts more.

Not sure how to handle the shadow-related jutsus, although I guess it's sort of like Tentacle.

I presume we get all the basic jutsu free? How, with this, do we model the various Jutsu? Just make it up as we go along?

It's very, very, very (very!) generalized.  Making it up as you go works for me.  So, yes.

Okay, I'll be ignorant and ask more questions.  I've skimmed over the wikipedia page and Cartoon Network page, but it sounds like the characters as presented there are from an earlier "epic" than we're talking about for the game.  There's no mention of Hinata, for instance.  The Naruto story does look really cool though, and I've been meaning to get into more manga and anime (my experience is limited to Akira, Ghost in the Shell, Spirited Away, and the like).  So maybe I'll try to get some or catch some episodes on Cartoon Network.

Anyway...

Here's an idea - could someone who is more conversant with Naruto volunteer to be my mentor (in and out of character).  I'll come up with a general character idea, corrected to be appropriate to the world, and my character is perhaps a younger sister or ward of the other person.

That might also help if I end up being flaky in the game, since I'm essentially a "cohort" to the more experienced player.

Sound good?

Oh, and it looks like most people in Naruto are under the board-age-limit, so I'm guessing none of us will be taking the young age disadvantages. :)
