An update on this - we have a good RP going, centered mainly around the Chunin Exam, which has a good core of players in it.
However, our other threads have died off somewhat, with a few of our players.
Hence we are looking for some fresh blood!
Here's the deal;
- You will be playing Genin undertaking their Chunin exam, which is ongoing at the moment.
- You will be from Konoha (extra villages will be added in if we get enough regular players).
- Our Konoha is an alternative Konoha, please see earlier in this thread for more information. There are no canon characters in this RP.
- Custom kekkei genkai and bloodlines are not considered at the moment. This includes custom Jutsu. You can create a character that is specialised in one area (dojutsu, medic, taijutsu, etc) or has one of the canon Konoha bloodlines (for example we have some players who are from the Hyuuga clan). Once you have built a character up over their ninja career, I will consider custom jutsu once they've been in the RP for a decent amount of time, if they really want.
Other than that, we're trying to create a slightly more adult Narutoverse, where personalities and character outweigh fancy flashy jutsu.
Character Sheet -
Name (Something Japanese-sounding, at least):
Main strength:(Does your character specialise in Genjutsu, elemental attacks, have blistering Taijutsu, rely on his/her bloodline, etc. Bear in mind you will be starting off as genin, so you won't be overly powerful at all. This is, rather, an area that your character is definately showing promise in. Of course, your character could be a multi-tasker and not strong in anything, in order to remain averagely skilled in lots of areas.)
Bloodline/Clan:(IF applicable. Konoha's main bloodlines, if you don't know them, are Uchiha, Hyuuga,Aburame, Akimichi,Inuzuka, Kurama, Nara,Yamanaka. If your character does not have a bloodline or belong to a famous clan, they will probably be more talented in some other area, and in any GM decisions, I will reflect this.)
Biog:(What made your character decide life as a ninja serving Konoha was for them? And any notable experiences in the village Academy, etc. No cheesey "X's father was killed and X is training for refenj lolz!" plz.)
Personality:(Some brief notes summing up your characters traits. The quirkier, the better!)
Strengths and flaws:(Note the latter, please! Everyone has weaknesses or bad traits, your characters should reflect this.)
I look forward to your character application-no-jutsu!

Konohagakure No Sato
Current Hokage: Nawaki Wasaji, aka"The Green Shadow".
A distant and impersonal Hokage, he keeps himself to himself and is rarely seen about the village. All that is known about him is his mysterious jutsu, the "green shadow" that earnt him his nickname and kept Konoha untouchable during the Great Ninja War. Although cold and aloof, he isn't a bad Hokage, and his special jounin aides speak highly of him.
Notable history: The village, thanks in part to Wasaji and in part to its famous clans, performed admirably during both the Samurai wars and the Great Ninja War that succeeded it. Always having been a rich village, Konoha has always enjoyed a comfort often envied by other villages.
Current status: Konoha has been recruiting and retraining over the past couple of years since the end of the Great Ninja War. During this time, it takes on only a handful of A and B-class missions a year, and those always without any major risk to any other land or village. Konoha and Wasaji seem to be focused on its wave of keen young recruits that are the future. One notable little-known thing is, however, that Wasaji and his aides are considering taking action on the crisis in the Mist Village, which has seen a recent uprising and has plummeted into vicious civil war. Like most other villages, Konoha has stayed out of Mist's own business, but is now being urged to take action by various Daimyos and commitees after weeks of violence around Mist lands.
You'll see a tiny bit of history there. The Samurai Wars were initiated when an alliance of supposedly renegade Samurai refused to acknowledge shinobi in the world, and began leading "justified attacks" to stomp them out. Shinobi from various villages retaliated, and thus began the Samurai Wars, ending with the deaths of thousands of samurai, surrender of thousands more, and the exile of hundreds of others. Some claim that fugitive samurai still exist and pose a threat to existing shinobi hidden villages. Others laugh that claim off completely.
Your grandparents might have fought or died in the Samurai Wars. It's fairly old history.
The Great Ninja War began when a power vaccuum, caused by the displacement of the once-powerful samurai, initiated newly formed ninja villages to start jockeying for power. One thing led to another, and soon five of the most powerful villages were at each others throats. This war ended in a cautious stalemate, nearly ten years ago. The peace that exists between the villages is getting stronger.
Your parents or elder siblings may have fought or died in the Great Ninja War. It's more recent history.
Whilst not an outright victor (no village truly won the War) Konoha didn't do too badly out of it, of course suffering losses like all the villages did.
