INTEREST CHECK: Older Naruto Roleplay (CLOSED)
« on: April 07, 2012, 12:56:19 AM »
Ironic; I never notice a Naruto on E period, and the first time I go to post an interest check, someone else has already done so.

However, Snowe doesn't seem to want any more people in her game, and the character-type she wants is rather different from what I'm looking for anyways. So, if there's anyone who liked the idea of a Naruto RP, but either missed the chance to get into Snowe's game or like the idea of playing older/more experienced characters should definitely give this a look :)

So, I'm looking for a game that focuses on group of Chuunin/Jounin (ideally, some sort of joint-village squad, but I need to hammer out the plot details still). Ideally, the characters would be 18+, but that's not a requirement. I don't intend on this game being sex-driven by any means; I want the option open, but I don't want it to be the main thing (so try to cut back on the sex-based jutsu a little xP).

For characters, like I said, Chuunin and Jounin. For clans, pick your poison pretty much; if it's a clan that should be extinct and such (Uchiha, Kaguya, etc), then count on me to find an excuse for it to be available. I'm not sure how much regulation I want to put on the strength of characters; on the one hand, I don't want to have to systemize the whole thing, but on the other hand I'd hate to have to be stepping in all the time to tell players to tone it down. Maybe some input on that'd be nice. Obviously, I don't want to see characters with an (Eternal) Mangekyo Sharingan or a Rinnegan, and I'm not sure about jinchuuriki yet.

To get some thoughts rolling, I typically set my games either in an alternate reality (where the current plot isn't an issue), or in a future time period where the current cast has since become deceased (As a rule, I loathe involving canon characters in my RPs). Some thoughts on which of these players would prefer would be nice as well :)

That's all I've got to say at this point. Hope I catch some eyes :)

Ironic, given I was hoping the players would help provide some direction :P

Tentatively, I'm thinking of a game either in an AU or the future where, for a reason I haven't come up with, a multi-village squadron of some sort is selected to complete some sort of task, or face some kind of special enemy. The idea would be that all the players would be a member of this (for lack of a better word) joint taskforce. The game would then focus on them working to achieve their goal, allowing for relationships, both sexual and nonsexual, to develop.

If that didn't help, please think of some more specific questions, if for no other reason to prompt me to find the answer ^_^

Hi!~

I noticed your RP and thought I'd come sort a few things out, as I think you've gotten the wrong wires crossed dewd.

Firstly, I'm uh..I'm not a girl? I mean, there's a male sign..right over there. Male sign..totes.

So anyway! Secondly, I did actually say that as soon as we get this team started, if anyone else wanted to join then other teams could be made, or I could separate the characters into three different teams, making more characters.

Also, mine isn't actually sexual-driven either; I even put a rule that people could just lol-sex right in the middle of a mission or something, 'cus..well that'd be offputting wouldn't it? Seeing two random genin getting it on when you're getting your ass kicked. Total douche move.

In fact, I would prefer the three teams thing, as making missions and stories for one large squad is difficult, where as making them for three small teams is much easier, now isn't it.

Anyway, two notes on this:

1. You can both join if you like, I can always change it around a little, we still haven't started yet. And..

2. You shouldn't talk about people like that, it's sorta rude.  ::)

So, yeah, anyway, I'd love to see you in my RP too Kaiten! We need good players too ^_^

While I totally accept and apologize for the gender error, mate, I really think you're getting your back up a bit too much on this one.

I made sure to say "doesn't seem to want any more people". I also said the character type you wanted was different; not inferior, not stupid, not bad. Just different. I think you got way too bent out of shape over this whole thing when, aside from the already-acknowledged mistake, there was nothing rude intended or even conveyed.

And all I mean by character type is that I was thinking characters in the range of older Chuunin and Jounin, while you seem to be running more in the range of Genin teams with their sensei. As I said, it was not to insult or try and steal from your game, which is well under way, but just to see if people wanted something in the scheme of what I was offering.

A bump of sorts.

Still very interested in running this roleplay, and I'm hoping that the person continuing Snowe's game won't feel quite as threatened by this.

As mentioned above, while the other game (which I'm happy to see seems to be running successfully) is focused more on Genin teams, this game would be more about Chuunin and older shinobi. I'd say a 16+ age minimum for characters. I still haven't quite decided where to go on the plot, but I'm definitely looking on some input from interested players.

If you're looking for something with Genin, then please see Vaulera's continuation of the game begun by Snowe; it appears to be well on its way to completition, and I'm sure would appreciate a few more players. For those looking for more adult (not just the sexual sense) characters, please speak up and we can start talking.

@Marie: That would be one of the reasons I'm trying to find a plot that would result in a multi-village force, without it being some ridiculous world-ending doomity-doom, lol.

@Rachel: I'm a Hyuga fan myself; eager to see what you come up with!

Plotwise, I figure that some sort of dangerous criminal/organization that has proven a threat to every nation would be a sufficient motivation for a joint-village taskforce, without being some overblown uberplot. On the other hand, it seems mind-numbingly cliche. Thoughts?

Aside from the fact that I'm not really accepting profiles yet, there are two main issues I can point out with this character:

I'm a bit of a canon stickler, and so your main ability has me a little wary. I don't have issue with new Hiden and such, but I need you to explain it in terms of the principles of the series' techniques; how is this being done based on the ideas of chakra and such? Aside from that, I don't have too much issue with the ability, so long as it isn't overdone. If possible, come up with multiple techniques that make use of the clan's ability; like, one ability to absorb heat, another to inject it, one to channel drawn heat into a fire technique, etc...

The one thing I *do* need to comment on is your specialities. Ninjutsu, Taijutsu, Genjutsu. You're telling me he's a specialist at everything? This is just plain silly. Even characters who are highly capable in all areas (Kakashi, Itachi, Sasuke) are known for their particular ability in one, maybe two, kinds of techniques. Being a jack-of-all-trades is fine, but you'd have to understand that a master of comparable skill level could trump your abilities in their area of expertise (though you would likely have the edge in the other areas).

The story could use a little depth, as well, and a little less Sue; he did everything better than his peers, with no issues, etc, etc. The characters in this game should be upper class, but they shouldn't be Sannin-style prodigies.

True, and what I meant be specialties they are in ranked order he is better at A than B and better at B than C yet the most others are in a D ranking of jutsu ability so like he is standard at medical things. His background does need work so I shall work on that. Partly it was submitted that way as to show others that Sues aren't welcome and see how you would regulate it.

The chalra part of his ability will be worked on but I have ideas.

When it comes to sexual stuff in the Naruto world, I wonder how kinky the Akimichi clan gets.

@Swordsman: I agree fully on the not-thinking-about-bugs-with-sex. As for things like medical jutsu, you'd have to list skills like that specifically; it's not run-of-the-mill by any means.

@Deva: I'm fully for having Uchiha players; I myself am an Uchiha fan. However, I'm going to say from the outset that unless you have a DAMN fine story to earn it, you don't have a snowball's chance in hell of having a Mangekyo Sharingan. Putting aside all concerns of the plot and the scale of ability it offers, it's the thing that gives Uchiha a bad name among fans, and I have no interest in seeing it abused.

@Rachel: I see what you did thar!

I was kind of hoping to discuss the plot :)

See, I've been considering a joint force to track down a criminal, but that seems very cliche.

Someone else recommended a disaster affecting multiple nations, but most disasters could be handled by one village alone.

Other thoughts? Anyone who's interested, by the way, could join me on Yahoo Messenger to talk in real time.

So, Rachel and I had a little talk, and we decided on a criminal plot. Essentially, the two of us will be playing a pair of missing-nin; hers is going to be a violent psycho, while mine is going to be a heartless manipulator. We'll both also be playing members of the taskforce assigned to capture them and their associates.

Everyone playing will be allowed to play a member of each side; one on the side of the hunters, the other on the side of the hunted.

I am not sure allowing people to play both sides of the fence is a good idea as it either inflates the cast or makes it so that it is hard to keep track of. With Rachel and you it makes sense since you both are the GMs so it is your responsibility to do such things.

A good point. We'll see what the rest of the potential players think (if more appear).

EDIT: to offer a little explanation for setting. I like to set my games in an AU where Tobi didn't exist. It changes a lot. No Uchiha Clan Massacre, and I'm going to take a stretch that the Kaguya clan could survive their silly little civil war due to some Kage-level mercy without the Fourth Mizukage being manipulated.

And then, just to keep any canon characters out of the mix, set things about a hundred years later. We're at the 6th/7th kages of each village. The bijuu are still essentially insane, we'll assume, etc.

And here's a character sheet:

Code: [Select]
[b][u]Name:[/u][/b] Given
[b][u]Age:[/u][/b] Given
[b][u]Gender:[/u][/b] Given
[b][u]Village:[/u][/b] Preferably one of the five great Villages. Put a strike through the name for a missing-nin.
[b][u]Rank:[/u][/b] For most characters, this would be Chuunin, Tokubetsu Jounin, or Jounin.
[b][u]Titles:[/u][/b] This refers both to positions that a character has (ANBU, Academy Instructor, etc), and to aliases and monikers (The Copy Cat Ninja, Pain, etc).

[b][u]Description:[/u][/b] The character’s physical appearance, attire, etc. Pictures are allowed, or at least a medium-length paragraph.
[b][u]Personality:[/u][/b] Tell us about your character’s personality; what they like, what they dislike; their motivations; their mannerisms; their beliefs, or anything else about how they think, feel and act.
[b][u]Biography:[/u][/b] This is where you write down your character’s history, in as much depth as you can manage, preferably. Try not to God Mode Sue the hell out of your character; do not have them walloping Jounin out of the cradle, or winning their Chuunin Exam without a scratch; and don’t Emo Sue the crap out of them either, with an entirely dead clan, and nobody who loves them. Make them realistic, with realistic limitations, and realistic amounts of tragedy and joy in their stories. If you have to make them miserable pricks, however, then at least make it a good story.

[b][u]Abilities:[/u][/b]
Write down, in paragraph form, what kinds of abilities your character has, both in and outside of combat. Included in this are your elemental affinities, any bloodline abilities (kekkei genkai) your character has, and what particular styles of fighting and techniques your character likes to use. It’s important to note that, in most cases, your character’s Abilities will be derived from your Stats; a character will know more and more powerful techniques from the stat they have high scores in. Also note that the Stats and the Abilities are intended to work in tandem; a character’s high stats only measure their effectiveness with the abilities they possess; a character with a 5 in Ninjutsu doesn’t know how to use nearly every ninjutsu technique in the world, but instead uses very powerful techniques of a particular type with great skill. Also note that while one can see a character’s weaknesses in general terms by looking at their stat spread, the specific vulnerabilities of a character are covered in the Abilities section; every technique has a weakness, and the vulnerabilities of a character’s technique can be a greater decider in who wins and who loses than their stats. No matter how powerful your technique is, if a character has an immunity to it (a blind character versus visual genjutsu, for example), then you are most likely going to lose unless you have another ability to fall back on.

[b][u]Etcetera:[/u][/b] If there’s anything that doesn’t fit in above, then throw it down here. An important thing to note is that you should feel free to ADD to this sheet, if you have anything you think is missing or would be good to add. Do not SUBTRACT from it, however. And if anything is too small to be worth editing the sheet for, just throw it down here.

Name: Hyuuga Hitomi
Age: Nineteen
Gender: Female
Village: Konoha
Rank: Jounin
Titles: Hyuuga Heiress

Description: Personality: Hitomi is almost the definition of a 'good girl'. For the most part she does what she's told and what's expected of her. Above all of that she cares for her friends and for her clan. She would gladly lay down her life for Konoha and many know how well she could be depended on. Because of her upbringing she's very polite and sweet.
Biography: She is the heiress to the Hyuga Clan and was very sheltered as a child. Hitomi was constantly watched and supervised by one of her parents at all times. She even began training almost as soon as she could walk. The training paid off, being the most talented in her clan for her generation. However, she haa one unfortunate disadvantage. For some unexplainable reason, her byakugan occasionally 'shorts out'. Luckily her byakugan has been mores stable in recent years, but it still occurs one or two times a week.
During her Chunin exam she was severely injured. Because of her weakened state she was unable to use her Byakugan. For some reason it left her without her Byakugan for over a year. She wasn't even sure if she'd be able to use it every again. Because of that the Hokage recommended that she become a med-nin. So during that year she trained hard. The chakra control she'd gained due to her clan's abilities gave her an advantage and she is an above average med-nin.
While Hitomi isn't the most talented shinobi in all of Konoha, she is well known for her special talents. She still has many weaknesses, such as her genjutsu and her strength.

Abilities:

Hitomi has the same abilites as her clan. She posesses the byakugan and many of the main clan's special jutsu's. She's strong in ninjutsu and taijutsu along with medninjutsu and intelligence. Her speed is average while she is deficient in her genjutsu and strength.

Etcetera: Hitomi is a bi-curious virgin. She isn't purposely remaining a virgin. She just wants to be with someone who cares about her for the first time.

Name:  Shinigawa Daisuke
Age: 22
Gender: Male
Village: Konoha
Rank: Jounin
Titles: ANBU

Description: http://fc08.deviantart.net/fs37/f/2008/254/6/8/Cold_Water_V_by_nAgLiMaNtAs.jpg

In the picture he is seen without his mask that is white and is very plain with only red streaks to denote where his eyes are, he wears a utility belt that carries shurikens, kunai, scrolls, and any other spare small equipment essential for battle.

Personality: He is a person that is temperamental being typically warm and caring to those that he cares about and gets to know. He is much more cold and tactical to those that he just meets or is an enemy. With his time as a ninja he prefers to stay in more supportive role of his colleagues, not being too flashy or taking kills from others, he is just there to make sure the exit is covered, every enemy is confirmed dead, the mission is completed and everyone gets out alive.

His main motivation is to be a great ninja to show that even those who are christened as average can be exceptional ninja.

Biography: He was a person that was born in the city to a decent family of ninja that were decent with both of them being Academy Instructors, so this meant that he got training early but it was not specialized it was only the basics such as learning to channel his chakra efficiently. He still did not perfect it before he made it to the Academy. He took his classes seriously but was only about mid range much as his parents were. His teachers took note of the fact that he did well with what he had but he was still not going anywhere but the middle of his class.

Being in the middle did have its advantages as he was not all that paid attention to allowing him a little more practice in his spare time but nothing really seemed to help when going up against the likes of the Uchihas or the Hyuugas or the Aburames or the Inzukas who all seemed to have that special touch of their heritage behind them, something that he was not graced with.

All this did was get him to focus more and to hit the books even harder to become better with what he had, he moved a notch or two up the standing before graduation where he was placed in his squad with a Hyuga, and a Nara, Both of them were excellent at what they did and he respected them for it yet at the same time wished he was as lucky as they were. Seeing this, his squadmates helped him train and train till he could actually fight them on a fair level.

This helped the team tremendously as it seemed that a seemingly average ninja was now a part of a squad that was quick to complete missions and move up the ranks. It was hard work as he constantly needed to train against the two of them as they progressed with them keeping him on their level the whole time so that the Chunnin exams were hard, but he made it through with a few broken bones and a good six week long hospital stay.

He was positive and persevering through all of their adventures together even as they made it to being Jounin on an ANBU team.

Abilities:
Daisuke is of the fire affinity with good chakra channeling capabilites. To enhance this he uses elements of the Strong Fist that he learned in school and from other squadmates as well as the Chakra Enhancement Style to thus enhance the strength and speed of his blows. He knows the various levels of the flame bullet (Flame Bullet, Great Fireball Technique, Flame Dragon Bullet used with Earth Dragon Bullet, Phoenix Sage Fire Technique,  and will use them at a distance to possibly burn or distract while he closes the distance between them or increases it depending upon the context. He has a liking of the Shadow Clone Justu though is only able to produce two of good quality at a time usually doing so for missions to throw enemies off in which to close the gap between them so that he can go for a kill or escape. If he is close to his opponent and either wants to ensure their death and their are susceptible to it, he would use Demonic Illusion: Tree Binding Death. Also in crowds he would use the Temple of Nirvana Technique to minimize the amount of collateral damage or use it if he is concealed to put his enemies to sleep allowing him to finish them off.

There are a few methods available to him in which to finish an opponent off or to use a powerful technique in which to do so, use his derivative of the 100% Punch by channeling the chakra in his arms to do massive amounts of damage to his opponent.

If there weren't already flaws in the character that are quite clear it still is good to point such things out.  Also, he is more of a close range combatant meaning that though he can do damage at long ranges with his fireball techniques, the guaranteed death is only when someone gets closer. He is sufficient in jutsu but is by no means a master, meaning that those with more higher ranked jutsu will easily outclass him. Especially since a lot of his justsu are something that are more basic, they are easy to avoid and easy to counter with their uses widely known making all of them fairly predictable. This would become a dangerous thing when going up against a person with the Sharingan as he would have no real countermeasure against them.

Etcetera:
