Does anyone play it?

I confess Naruto is my guilty pleasure, but only on the same conditions that Star Wars is also my guilty pleasure. Both have a great setting, full of so much potential... But usually squandered by its' creator on silly things. Therefore, I enjoy making my own stories out of the setting!

I am fond of the system as it allows me to

A. Tell stories that are way better than the ridiculous stuff that passes off as canon nowadays.
B. Create my own characters in the setting that are unique and deep and... such.

A few things to note; Most characters from the series can become full-fledged ninja at the age of 12 (and in some cases, 6 or so)... If there does end up a game on E (I would be surprised), characters would have to be at the least 16. If there is a game running on E and I end up DMing it, well... It won't be a sex-fest, for one, but it will drift into a somewhat mature territory, which is the reason it would be on E and not some other gaming site. Namely;

Females dealing with the implications of ever being captured by their enemy (A particularly good example would be a female ninja with a special bloodline, in which an enemy village might benefit by... continuing this bloodline.)

Or more conventionally, the protagonists (male and female included) gripping with their lifestyle as disposable human weapons OR being asked to help and/or aid in the above situation, should an enemy kunoichi be captured who has a bloodline...

In short, dilemnas! Don't expect any fart jokes.

Also, the game will likely take place as far away from the canon as possible, likely before the series has even started... and in another village. Something like that.

Also, if you want to know where you can get the book (for free),  look here. A word of caution, though; At a hefty 1060 pages, it's... comprehensive, and slightly leaning towards a simulationist approach to game design. If you're not used to something like that, don't worry about it.

Never done d20, but I am very interested. I've wanted to do a Naruto themed rp regardless of what system it is run on. I am DL the info now. So I can further understand.

Erm how much of the game rules do you need to understand? I've never been one to do system games before now.

I would also recommend an alternate reality that takes place around the middle part of the first series. This doesn't limit our characters in technology.

I have the pdf and I'm fairly familiar with modern. Though I wish paizo would come out with pathfinder modern. Anyhow, what sort of character generation details do we have?

Offline Ala Rai Sen

If you are still recruiting, I'd be interested in this. I have the pdf and have played with it before.

Offline Niki315

Interested ^_^  I've played a few sessions of Naruto d20... the GMs always ditched after like the fourth or fifth session though.  I've gotten pretty good at designing characters and jutsus.

I totally agree about your stance on using the world but not the canon.  On multiple occasions I started working on Alternate Universe settings simply to change the ridiculous nature of the show, but preserve the impressive world.  I think I would really enjoy playing a game like this ^^

Offline SpiralSpider

I've never played Naruto D20 in particular, however I do have experience with other D20 games and I used to run a forum dedicated to Naruto Rps exclusively.

I'd be interested in joining you if you get it going here on E.

Offline SomeGuy

I'd be very interested, Naruto is a case of a setting I like but I can't stand the plot and main characters.

I've actually looked over an older version of the d20 rules a while back.

Offline pimpdan

hmm this seems interesting, I have no D20 experience though :(
how long would it take to learn?

Offline Niki315

Standard d20 games are really easy to learn, usually.  However, the Naruto setting and specific rules can get rather complex.  Do you play other tabletop systems?  It would be easier to pick up if you had something to relate it to.

Offline pimpdan

I am a complete n00b sadly...

I will pass on this but might keep an eye on it and see what I can learn for future reference :D

Offline Tydorei

I'm game for this. I just hope the thread creator is still thinking of running this.

Offline Niki315

I feel bad now.  I didn't mean to scare anyone off.  o.o()

Nah, you haven't.  Inerrant Lust is just currently rather busy.  I'm sure he'll respond to this when he gets some time.

I am also expressing my interest in this game.

Don't worry, I'm still interested in this... but I'll be away until the 22nd. So if anyone's still interested by then...  ::)

I think we can all wait that long I think it might be worth discussing plot line. Maybe the idea you and I discussed a couple of week  ago? IE "A group of Shinobi go rouge and form their own village.

Now that would be one hell of a juicy plot!  Plenty of room for some pretty intense conflict, a perfect explanation and excuse for each character to hail from a different village yet all be in the same community together, and nearly limitless reasons that may have driven each one of them to want to essentially turn traitor and leave their own people.  There are of course plenty of other ideas we could also think about, but I'll wholeheartedly support this one until some others are put on the table.

The beauty part is we could run it over a few generations. First the founders then a  more recent generation.

Though our characters should all be linked as allies at first. If we want we could add in later tesions between the original founders.

Only that if they're all Ninja if we already havea from the get go it's boring. :/ But I guess it's up to you on your character and I shouldn't try andrun this.

Online DigitLninja

sorry I didn't mean that as a hostile response... ^^;

My character for Naruto games has always been designed as an ANBU simply because of his abilities, he's also designed around being a lot older for a new ninja, because he was among one of the failing teams when Naruto graduated from Ninja School.

His fail led to an invite to join ANBU simply because of his Kekkei Genkai being perfect for spy related missions, he turned them down until he could actually become a ninja, so his joining with this new village could actually be considered his entrance test into ANBU, and if I decide to do this it could go ether way, since it is the Leaf Village they could end up giving support to this new ninja village.

However... none of this even matters until we decide if the plot is going to be the start of a new village.

Unfortunately he survived, barely. Ended up with around 5 hit points left.

Offline Mysterica

*shakes head*  and he probably blamed the gm for trying too hard to kill him when it seems he was trying to kill himself...

Offline SomeGuy

Actually he blamed us for not being there to 'back him up'

Later on we ended up just killing him ourselves. Stabbed through the back with a poisoned halberd and tossed overboard to the sharks. We did wait until he stopped showing up, but that was satisfying.

Hmm peeking it over. Little bit busy RP wise (really just curious and having time to peek due to having a few on a slight hiatus) but I might as well see what its like. Not a for sure joining though figure I might chime that I might do so.

Online DigitLninja

welcome to the pack Yorubi

Offline Yorubi

Well like I said I'm not quite sure if I would join in. ^^;; Rather a newb to system games as it is so it would take a bit to figure out the system, and then being a lil preoccupied with other RPs might hold me back. Still though I am looking at it and pondering about it. ^^

Offline Mysterica

It shouldn't be too difficult to learn.  D20 systems like this are fairly easy to learn.  It can be a little confusing at first, but once you learn what your doing, they are easy.

Online DigitLninja

the hardest part is usually making a character then just follow when the GM says to toss the dice...

Offline Mysterica

Yeah, pretty much.

Online DigitLninja

and make sure you calculate all the bonuses you have for dice rolls... I always forget that part.

Offline Ramael

I was tentative about posting at first, but there's a bunch of people saying D20 is easy to pick up. If another newb isn't a problem for the OP, then I will gladly toss my lot in - you don't know how long I've been craving to get a decent Naruto-themed story going with a bunch of smart people who also like romance and lust (seriously, such potential, if only some of the storylines were a little more mature and better thought-through! Ah well, I guess it is Shonen...). In fact, I bet you do know, and that's exactly why this thread exists.

I have had so many ideas for this kind of thing, but nowhere to unleash them. Until now...

Offline Inerrant LustTopic starter

Some themes I might want to play around with;

Bloodlines. Namely, the nature in which one village may 'acquire' them from another village. To use an example from the manga, stealing the eyes of a Byakugan for instance. Branch family members' eyes are destroyed upon death or on command, making this impossible. So what if Kumo captured a Hyuuga ninja and bred them to produce future byakuugan-wielding ninjas? How would these children feel about their origin, their lineage? How would the village treat them?

Kunoichi. I don't think we see enough seduction and 'social guile' in the canon.  ;) Tobi is the closest the series gets to a depiction of a ninja hiding in plain sight using a 'personality disguise' and Kabuto does the same thing. They never put their disguises to any particular influencial use, though... aside from avoiding detection.

...Hrm. I forgot the rest. Anyways... What kind of ideas for characters do you guys have? Don't worry about mechanics, that can always be built around the concept.

Offline SomeGuy

I was thinking along the lines of a chakra monster, high constitution and such and try to be on track to hit Abysmal. Lots of high powered ninjutsu (my original build projection was dedicated hero 5/shinobi adept 3/elemental specialist 7/technique analyst 5 [if going into epics devastator 5/????]) and by nature of high constitution be pretty tough too.

I've actually seriously considered taking a bloodline or template, but I'm not sure about any specifics currently.

Very proud and ambitious, a major goal (however unrealistic) is to surpass a bijuu in power. Jinchuuriki would work well with the idea, but I dislike the current templates that exist.

Online DigitLninja

I always hated the fact that the Hidden Leaf village had so few ninja using plant based moves... then they introduced the wood jutsu user and called it good.

So I created a Plant Jutsu user someone who uses earth and water to allow all plants to grow and be used as weapons.

I originally had him being one of the ninja school drop outs, who failed his Genin test while Naruto and his friends succeeded he spent a year or so studying which accounts for his being 18-19 years old.

Later I decided that his Plant Jutsu had to be considered a Kekkei Genkai, I also decided that he was actually a year older than the other ninja and started late because the death of his brother was what motivated him to fight.

Later after reading what the ANBU Black Ops. where all about I figured that they would be actively seeking to take him on, mostly because his best talent was the ability to listen to conversations using any near by plants. However he informed them that until he was made a Genin he would not join ANBU and they backed down until he accomplished his task.

I have never been able to use my character for more than a Genin entry test in a Naruto rp.

Offline Yorubi

Character creation is a pain. ^^;; Still must say looking through (well skimming XP ) I really don't see a reason NOT to include a bloodline in the naruto d20. O.o I thought there would be more negative side effects or advantages from those, or at least something of an advantage for those not of the bloodline. Granted I might of missed it but eh. ^^;;

Edit: In terms of character, I have no clue even what I'd go with. >.<

Offline Ramael

Only problem I possibly see is many people rushing to be Uchiha, but seems most folks have ideas of their own so that may not happen.

For me, the most interesting ninjas are Kakashi, Jiraiya and Shikamaru from the canon, because these ninjas either A) Are massively capable with little power but brilliant technique, or B) Are not Bijuu-strength, but are capable of taking one on simply because they have a variety of tricks up their sleeve.

I like the idea of a jack-of-all-trades, one who isn't overtly strong in any path, but has ability in all. Who can draw upon a variety of tools.


I think the bloodline thing is DEFINATELY something to think about, and also on the same theme -

Sasuke always banged on about "saving" his clan, but he always just goes about attacking people in order to do so.

In order to secure your bloodline, wouldn't you go about banging the shit out of everyone not related to you!? That's also something I wouldn't mind exploring.


Other vague ideas I had were based on the better parts of the canon-like those ninjas who have powers based on what ancient japanese ninjas were supposed to be able to do. I'd like to play with the "hiding-in-plain-sight" theme, and have some ninjas who are maybe incredible actors. This involves a variety of jutsu, voice projection, vocal-shocks, intimidation, summons (being able to summon one's greatest ever role) etc.

Offline Yorubi

Eh Kakashi really is one with great power. Sharigan is a huge advantage on his part he pretty actively uses. Jiraiya though (as far as I know) really does seem to be the strong fighter using no resources of his own and becoming so powerful. Shikamaru does have his bloodline, but he doesnt have raw physical power but rather uses finesse which does earn him respect.

Haha humping to preserve the bloodline. XD Sasuke more about Revenge Revenge Revenge /wrist Revenge. Eh its fine but just waaaaay overplayed. I can see someone falling to darkness for it but yeash the way it happened makes me cringe.

Sasuke as a character is in a constant slump and decline of cool and douche. :/ Right now he's a petulant child though I want to see him and Naruto fight again. Erm What about original summon clans? I have one in mind at the moment.

Without turning the interest thread into a Naruto debate, I mean in that compared to Naruto, Pein/any of the Akatsuki, Sasuke (these days anyway), K and J only use their Big Guns (Sharingan and Sage Mode respectively) when presented with definate badasses, preferring to try out all their other tactics first. Kakashi and Shikamaru's fight with Hidan and Kakuzu, for example; Kakashi was definately outgunned in that battle, but he deployed a crapload of other tricks before the climax.

We've also seen how Jiraiya became so powerful, he is an old chap so he's accumulated a crapload of experience, which we see him utilise. (Don't know how much you've seen/read so don't want to spoil things).

So...is this game getting up and running, soon? It definately has enough interest.

Offline Mysterica

I'm currently debating going in and effectively making an Inuzuka character.  Take moujuu aishou with a dog and maybe child of the wild at lvl 1, then two lvls in charismatic hero just for the handle animal, six in fast hero, then start moving into beastmaster lvls.

Or, barring that, a shinobi swordsman, taking probably six lvls in fast then moving into swordsman lvls.

While you are correct, it does take a very large amount of chakra to use several of the techniques Jiraiya taught Naruto, a fact that he admits to himself, so you can't quite deny he is...  was a beast, but he just isn't half way to trying to be a god.

True lol. I mean he has an advantage though, I mean his nick name is the 'copy cat ninja' which does use the power. ^^;; Really your meaning more along the lines of being versatile and having lots of tricks behind their sleeves. Resourceful of sorts. I thought your meaning like powers that give them such strength ^^;;

I'm still like unsure of the 'class' to pick and all. Meh... even then if it was free form I'd not be sure what kind of ninja to be.

Offline Mysterica

Just think of that first before you ever think about classes.  or even start looking at prestige/advanced  classes or bloodlines to help get started, then look at the basic classes to flesh your character out and meet any prerequisites there are.

Offline Ramael

Not to that level of power at all, otherwise that would be next to cheating, but there is the feel there. Thing is, with my potential actor-ninja, his personality would be so brash and outspoken and dramatic (think Team Rocket from Pokemon) that he would ruin his own stealth techniques, falling back onto his other talents in a fight.

And yes, Yorubi, versatility is probably a better word for what I meant. A versatile, overly dramatic, actor ninja.

In my dreams.

Eh guess so. Hate having to look at it in book form. Pathfinder SRD spoiled it with a system noob like me haha ^^;;

I'm usually the mesh type that likes to fill in the missing role so I'll probably end up doing something like that if I joined. Granted I don't think naruto d20 is designed more like that, its still nice to try and be a lil different. That and I have the need to be cuuuute in a Ninja RP.

Well, fitting in isn't always necessary. Besides, you could always purposely dress like your ready for combat, but stay back and hit 'em with genjutsu.

Offline Yorubi

Nyah not small... well maybe a little short haha. Yeah I know just when you think ninja you don't think soft hearted and all. *Shrugs* I'm the cute type personality what can I say. ^^;; I mean I can full out go to front lines and fight that way fine and still keep that type of personality, though I will admit back line characters tend to have that type of personality more. I was tempted to  try a genjutsu character though since it does seem different. :)

Edit: As a side note, I think I noticed what balances out not having bloodlines. Seems its basically like multiclassing to get stronger in a bloodline rather then taking a level in a class. ^^;;

So it sounds like we have a Genjutsu user and a spytype. Is there anyone else who'd want to be fighter?

Offline Yorubi

*Poke* Well remember now I'm not 100% in here or even 100% sure I'd play the genjutsu type haha. I'm already cringing that there isn't an easy character sheet to use on like plot hook for it. >.<

So far that's just looking like me and maybe somewhat digital so far...  hard to exactly pinpoint what he's planning.

Another idea you might look into Yorubi if you join is medical specialist.  That also gives you a bit of a reason to go with the personality quirks you were looking for.

What were you planning on making?

Online DigitLninja

from what I have seen I have three options for my hero's class:

Fast Hero
Smart Hero
or
Dedicated Hero

I'm leaning more toward Smart or Dedicated.

Offline Mysterica

Well as I said earlier I'm probably either going the Inuzuka route of things, or I'm making a shinobi swordsman.

I think I'm leaning towards the same choice's. What I'm aiming for is Jutsu, summoning and Spear (so exotic weapon) as a main at least for my initial character. Strong would be best for my second I think. Though both of them are meant to be Jutsu and weapon master styled characters.

Erm What kind of sword out of curiosity? If a large sword style I can keep Kain (my swordsman) out of this.

Offline Mysterica

Well it is very unlikely I won't make my Inuzuka idea work out, though it is likely going to be either a katana or double katana if I go the swordsman route.

Ah cool that would mean they'd be a fast ninja class wise. Cool they'd be different enough.

Yeah Medical ninja could work too haha. I thought of a cool bloodline but then I remembered it was a system RP *pokes self* I'm bad at wanting to be to creative in system games heh ^^;; I'll have to really just see and figure out what I want either way if I do play. Might want to use a bloodline or might not, might want to use a summon or might not. Bleh so much to figure out character wise and then all down to the actual character sheet. >.<

I'm wondering how the summon clans would work. :/

Offline Mysterica

Yeah...  I just wish the charismatic hero and the strong hero weren't the only base classes with handle animal.  That makes me have to take two extra lvls in one of them before my fast hero lvls for my Inuzuka before taking beastmaster lvls.

Offline Yorubi

That and if I did go wisdom, well any hero really, I have no clue what to actually focus to be effective haha. Sure wisdom is fine but outside that I can only wonder. DnD/pathfinder its kinda laid out and hinted at clearly though in here the classes are a bit more vague it seems for that. >.<

Ah... still kinda hard since I'm not quite sure about all the things really here. I mean as far as a 'dedicated hero' goes, like I have no clue if they should be a more melee focused hero or if they should be specializing in some spells or what not. I kinda wish they had some talent like in Naruto (assuming its going off kinda like Sakura/Kage whose name I can never remember for the life of me) with applying their chakra control to physical attacks or what not. ^^;;

Blargh. Typed something then changed what I was typing and didn't fix what I had already typed. What I was saying was "and I'm pretty sure there are techniques which give strength ranks, which are essential the super strength displayed" and then I changed it to "and strength ranks are essentially the super strength displayed"

Ah lol. Figure it would be, though in the show it seemed to contribute the super strength more towards the use of chakra then actual physical strength haha. I think I'm just probably over complicating it a little. It seems a bit more free form is the big thing so you can build a character more openly.

Offline SomeGuy

Strength ranks require chakra each round to use. Actual physical strength would be a flat bonus to your Strength score.

Is there room in this RP? Could quickly make char up.

Online DigitLninja

Hmm, I have hit a snag, there seems to be little or no mention of elemental chakra in the book...

Offline Mysterica

What digitl?

Offline SomeGuy

Mostly it's mentioned under the elemental affinity option in chapter 1, otherwise it's technique categories. Almost all techniques are classified as one type of element, and there's even an elementalist prestige class.

Offline Mysterica

Yeah.  There is a section that starts on page 14 that starts talking about it.

Online DigitLninja

ah I see it now... I was looking in Blood lines simply because having more than one element was listed as a blood technique.

Offline Inerrant LustTopic starter

Like it's been mentioned before, you can pretty much just think up of any sort of special abilities or techniques or character concept you want and I'd be more than happy to jigsaw the game mechanics around that. The system's flexible, and so am I.

As for the plotline... I like the idea of the protagonists eventually leaving to start their own village or somesuch. And I also like the idea of avoiding the 'featured' villages in the canon. So maybe having it start off in the more obscure villages like Rock, Mist, or even Grass and Waterfall.

Online DigitLninja

Would I still be able to toss in my ANBU character idea? I thought that ANBU where specific to the Hidden Leaf...

Offline SomeGuy

There's an advanced class that's basically that, just renamed to be more general.

Offline Mysterica

Well then...  i suppose I will be going with my swordsman idea then as a fair few of the techniques I had in mind are hijutsus of the Inuzuka clan of the leaf.

I don't know about ANBU being specific to the leaf.  It's possible, but other villages might simply have other names for them.  They are effectively just the elite spies, and hunter-nin after all that were given their own group right?

Offline Inerrant LustTopic starter

That is correct. Suna has an ANBU unit, Mizu has the Hunter-nins which sort of operate in the same vein, and we don't know enough about the other villages to disprove that they have ANBU units.  O:)

Offline Mysterica

Well...  one idea falls through the cracks, now its time to look up techniques for idea two I suppose.

Offline SomeGuy

It would probably be fine to use that idea, maybe refluff it a bit.

Offline Zaer Darkwail

Hmmm, how sounds this char concept; A advanced nin template (the +1 LA template for nins with good breeding background) with strong/tough hero levels to be direct unarmed figthing taijutsu master learning to give and take punishment. Or simply fast hero who uses bow as main weapon (ranged combat nin).

Offline SpiralSpider

I have some character concepts for this game, but how do I go about creating the character and figuring out their stats?

Offline Mysterica

It would probably be fine to use that idea, maybe refluff it a bit.

Only if Inerrant Lust approves.

Offline SomeGuy

Only if Inerrant Lust approves.

Thus the "probably"

Offline Tydorei

I was thinking of applying to the game, but I can't find out what the starting lvl and age is supposed to be...

Offline Mysterica

We haven't really been given starting lvls yet as this was mostly just an interest check *points to thread title* but he said in the opening characters must be at least 16

Erm starting level what would the maximum level be? Maybe our characters could be recently promoted Genin? As in promoted to Chouin.

Offline Zaer Darkwail

Genin levels are 1-4, Chuunin (or those becoming one) are 5-9 and Jounin are around +10 level guys.

Offline Inerrant LustTopic starter

It would be around 5 and 9. Given the starting age of 16, most ninjas are chuunin at that point unless they aren't particularly good. I'd hate to start off everyone at level 1 alongside the 12 year olds in the village. Kind of embarressing. :P So most everyone would have a few years of bona fide ninja'ing under their belt at the start of the story.

I'm partial to a game set in Kirigakure.

I'm fine with any time.  Just not after the fourth as we don't really know quite how everything will wind up working out in the end.

If the game is set in Kiri, wouldn't that negate our characters setting up our own village? Or are you over that idea now?

Not really, no. That would just be a starting point which we would likely use to settle into the system and rules, and then set out shortly afterward, or wait a few levels and head out.

Offline Ramael

Cool beans.

Innerant, are you waiting for character sheets from us all before you start up the game?

Edit: being as we're all at least 16, are we playing as Genin about to take our Chuunin exams, or Chuunin recently graduated?

Does anyone know how to get the character sheet? Or are we creating a digital one?

I've taken a look at the system and my characters and this is what I've drafted so far could you guys give me any ideas on how balanced they seem? As this is just a draft I'm still trying to decide some things. Some of the information provided are from another rp attempt that never got off the floor. The sea otter stuff needs a bit of fine tuning back story wise. I'm also wondering if their are any feats that would allow these two twins to fight together. In a way that could be worked out stat wise.

As a young clan their numbers are small and there ways are young. Their first official tradition is the possession of a trident known as Hamaguriheki*. It was commissioned by Takeshi and made from Chakra treated steal and red coral found by the otters. It is a sign of their union. A ninja who signs their contract will be given the opportunity to use it.

Eh sorry but I think I'm going to actually sit this RP out. I just kinda feel weird about doing naruto system based myself and I'm just getting myself more and more confused about it. I know the GM did state about 'fitting in' powers, but really it just makes it that much more complicated and I'd rather just go with a free form where its easier to work around.

I forget to bookmark this, and I am four pages behind.

I'm a bloodline user and abuser. I guess because of the way I think and well how opposite I am to my cousin. I would probably try for Uchiha. Though reading over the guide. It would take hella work to do. As for the game set in Kiri I don't mind. Time line Could bounce either way. Before 1st ninja war or after 4th ninja war. We could say all the canons were killed off, and the only mention of their name is in a book.

In an old rp I was in I mixed the bloodlines Hyuuga and Uchiha. Madara was very bad! The Shakugan is what I called it. Though I stole it from a Naruto game based off of Wizards Wc3 Frozen Thone.

I have an OC based upon myself who has a bloodline trait. She's from another village I created for some forums I used to run: http://z11.invisionfree.com/Amimonogakure/index.php?showtopic=3

I could alter her history to be from a canon village and to otherwise fit the story, but again I'd have to be walked through the process of how to create her for Naruto D20.

I have some other Naruto OCs as well, but she's the only one based upon myself.

Erm maybe one of the others who gets the system could start it? The two of you could co operate and then we see what happens.

Offline Mysterica

Yeah.  Or if someone else could just take over and turn it into their own idea for a campaign.  I have a slight bit of understanding, but don't really know enough to feel comfortable GMing.  I there is someone who does though, we could still try and get something going.

Or if it comes down to it we could try a systemless based one. Looking at the system has inspired me though. I've modified the Naruto Ninja version of my two OC's.

Hmmm, 5th level game in before series actually hit in. In the ninja war period what is most least revealed about.

I could volunteer to GM but I am known for lazy posting schelude as GM  :-\

I did say I was only gauging interest...

And I didn't think my schedule would be as crammed it is.  >:(

But I am sorry. I would have liked to do this as much as the rest of you... Unfortunately, I just don't think I can.

Offline Zaer Darkwail

Well...  even a slow game is better than no game ne?

Well....if you can bear my slowness I could start the game. If all accept it ofc.

Now recap; who all are still interested to do the game? Even if it is slow?

Anycase 5th level chars, 4d6 (drop lowest) rolled 6 times and assign as you wish. If not satisfied with rolls then do 32 point buy. In each level roll for wealth increase but in first level roll wealth roll as normal. I say no for now any enchanted weapons and armor so focus mundane gear. Anycase the game focus on the ninja war period (before 5 great villages being founded). I start all folks from single minor village, I release details later but for now call the village as 'Village of Twelve Bells' (name coming from twelve bells in the village). Village resides in the sea shore and it has beacon house (a fishing/trade town).

All have three basic jutsus (which they can trade other jutsu); Henge, Bunshin, Kawarimi. 10 other jutsu techniques which 8 must be max C rank and two B rank techniques (or higher if genius nin).

Also all have genin feat for free and Chuunin and Jounin etc will be free feats gained by accomplishing proper trials/tests. In case of Jounin your just promoted after several missions or after performing excellently S rank mission as chuunin usually.

As rule; genius nin only applies to single field their bonus than all of them. So there can be genius nin (genjutsu) example.

Well, you can get the special material made weapons but what I say none weapons have 'seals' which add enchantments or abilities to them. Also they can be masterwork etc.

If you wonder how explosive tags work or smoke bombs, do you have Naruto d20 rules DKDBSD? I have mine in pdf file.

Well, we can bend it little consider it is ninja wars period and the Inuzuka family has not even been founded yet. At best they were minor village which was absorded to Konoha and formed own family community there after the ninja wars. But if you want be beast handling ninja then go for it :).

I didn't actually fill out which stat went where just there, but they are the right numbers, even if they aren't allotted right.

Fine with that, just long I can see the rolls what you made :).

How would I create for the game a sword that boosts Katon Chakra?

Offline Zaer Darkwail

Boosts fire chakra? Well, it would be long term RP quest basically ;). Firstly said sword would be heavily coveted by any Katon chakra users. Second is that it's likely holding a seal which enchances it's performance.

But how to create it; you would need the special metal alloy which makes channeling chakra on said weapon easier. Then add seal which increases weapon potency with Katon chakra attacks (I assume melee techniques but would not be far fetch use sword bolster some raw ranged chakra attacks by channeling chakra through the sword).

But anyways that kind of weapon is out of your league to get/purchase or craft. But if you want your char life goal to make such weapon I do not stop you. You just need learn the sealing technique to extend learn add seals to weapons and armor and have high enough level and right jutsu techniques to imbue special metal alloy sword with the seal.

In Naruto setting actual 'magical' weapons are rare.

Mechanically, such a thing already exists... but enhancement seals are a decidedly optional mechanic.

Well the weapon already exists it's a family heirloom but considering it's power he'd need to earn it. He would then of course have to master it. So I'd wager he'd need to perform several missions and reach Chounin rank or equivalent at least. Then he'd need to master it in this particular case because it's a great sword it would be quite heavy anyways. So it's just how to figure out the heavy weight + burning those that are unworthy. Until yesterday said sword was just a great sword but I got to thinking about how I could allow my swordsman character (Kain) to be able to learn Gokyaku no Jutsu which is definitely a high level technique any ways.

However since this is before the timeline I usually use. I could have these two be the creator of the sword. Also in Kimiko's case be the first to make a pact with the Otters.

I think most of the major players are willing to help. I'm still trying to get the idea of how it works.

Ahaa, ok. If sword exchists as family heirloom then I may allow it. You meant a greatsword which has the enchantment what Inerrant Lust linked? Anycase those enchants do exchist but enchanted weapons are extremely rare in hands of genin ;). Seasoned Chuunin perhaps.

Anycase like that weapon is unusual in hands of ninja and so need investment of a feat and training to learn use it properly.

You roll 2d4 in first level, adding any wealth bonus from occupation, feats and other factors. Then each level you need roll d20+wisdom or profession roll to surpass your present wealth value to increase it by 1.

Also remember this is 5th level game, so roll four times d20+Wis or Profession roll and DC is your wealth value. So if you get payroll increase in 2th level as Katsu, you need pass d20 vs DC 9 that case in 3th level.

No, in first level you roll 2d4 as you did now. In level 2, 3, 4 and 5 you roll d20+Wis or Profession (which ever has higher mod) to determine does your wealth increase or not.

It's my thread and it's still the same topic.  :P

Okay, so now I have the time and energy to commit to this fully. I feel kind of bad for bringing the subject up and then dropping out later. :P Anyways, the offer's here and still valid.

I already have a decent idea for a basic plot and setting. It'll be set roughly 30 years before the main series' canon, before and during the Second Shinobi World War. The party would all be from a homebrew village (none of the major ones) in the land of rivers, probably Tanigakure... which has next to nothing described about it in 'canon' so there's much creative flexibility to be had there.

That being said, I have no intention of shackling the PCs to any one village and my hope will be that their allegiances shift and change during the course of the campaign.  ::)

Which one?

The ANBU ninja idea?

For this particular plot, I figure Tanigakure has a rudimentary ANBU system in place, echoing Konoha's. They might go by another name, or officially preform the duties of the Daimyo's Guard or somesuch. Speaking of which, something I whipped up;

Spoiler: Click to Show/Hide
Tanigakure  (谷隠れの里, Tanigakure no Sato; Literally meaning "Village Hidden in Valleys")
Medium (Minor) Hidden Village
Unique among the nations of the world, The Land of Rivers has combined the titles of the Daimyo and the village Kage, giving the ruler complete control of both his shinobi village and the land as a whole. Tanigakure is not unimpressive, nestled in the far reaches of a ravine formed by a river that runs through the center of town. With the only avenues of approach being through the main gate or by air, the village has a distinct advantage that offsets its' proximity to two other major villages, the Sand and Leaf. Yet in recent years, Tanigakure and Konohagakure have become close allies, while relations with Sunagakure have degraded as a result. Nearby Takumi Village retains a distant yet subservient relationship with Tanigakure.

Still interested but question regarding my char; How you rule permament Red Eyes feat? It says it increases my ECL by +3 when I have them but it does not say it is added LA. So do I start three levels lower than rest of the team or same level but I ask more XP to get level ups as I am three ECL ahead of others?

If wondering what I talk about; Red Eyes is homebrewed bloodline which gives access to crimson red eyes either as part of special rage (from unpure blood) or constant power up effect (with feat which says person is pureblood member have the bloodline). They give +1 to Str, Dex and Con (which increase up to +4 in 20th level) mostly but also some other benefits over long run.

Are you talking about the Mibu Bloodline? The straight ECL bonus is instantaneous, while most bloodlines in Naruto D20 use the bloodline rules (ie: You invest a level in the bloodline generally at your leisure.) So you'd start at Level 1. Actually, in my copy of the book, True Red Eyes is ECL +2, so you'd start at level 2, and you really wouldn't need to put a level into the bloodline until about Level 6.

Ok, also I was thinking use advanced human template then if possible. Reduce me into level 1 char to present the well made breeding background for Mibu clan. So sure, I do not have the raw experience and talent but perhaps my char is rising genius star and so have high expectations from superiors.

Ok, question before I start the process of character creation, do you have to start at a particular rank, or can you choose?

Offline Inerrant LustTopic starter

Everyone would be Genin at 4th level. Oh, in case I forgot to mention;

I'm going to do a Part 1/Part 2 sort of thing, like the series itself did. Part 1 will be a quick little prologue of sorts. Just to establish things and to start at a fairly low level to warm everyone up. So the PCs should all be roughly 13 years at that point. Not going to touch anything even remotely sexual there, for obvious reasons.

The Part 2 will be 3 years later, and then everyone will be Level 8 and eligible for Chuunin status.

Ok, also I was thinking use advanced human template then if possible. Reduce me into level 1 char to present the well made breeding background for Mibu clan. So sure, I do not have the raw experience and talent but perhaps my char is rising genius star and so have high expectations from superiors.

Aha, I forgot about that. Ironic, considering I once made an Advanced Human Mibu character as well once. :P Fair warning, losing a level can hurt pretty bad in Naruto D20. Particularly at low levels, where you're restricted to low-end techniques.

And the Mibu bloodline doesn't particularly get useful until you get to about mid-level. This Campaign might end up going on that long (I hope!) so it might be worth the payout in the end. :P

In the Part II thing, he'd be Level 5 with a total bonus of +4 Str, +2 Dex, +4 Con, +2 Cha while everyone else would be Level 8 (unless they also have a bloodline or somesuch)

Supposing the game got to level 20 or something crazy like that, you'd have to spend 2 bloodline levels, take the ECL 2 from True Red Eyes and the ECL 1 from Advanced Human. In short... Level 15. :P That's a pretty big disadvantage, so I'd recommend you make the most out of the increased ability scores... which would likely be seen most obviously in Taijutsu Save DCs and the bigger chakra pool. Meaning you could afford to use high-end taijutsu techniques and they'll often pay off. Unfortunately... you'll lag behind everyone in levels so it'll be difficult to learn those strong high-rank techniques.

Also... So far I have 4 people interested. The idea was to have a 3-man team but I can be flexible. :P

I do indeed plan focus on taijutsu, shinobi swordmaster in fact (using katana, as I think it counts as archaic weapon choice what advanced bloodline human gets). Anyways I do know I will lag behind but could take genius nin for taijutsu so I do not lag that much. Also note; bloodline levels do not count as LA kind deal. The bloodline levels do not retstrict maneuvers learned and allows learn bonus feats and ability scores etc. But gives no saves, SP nor HD. So 17th level basically for learning jutsus based on your level.

For this game, Nin Weapons and Archaic Weapons are almost interchangible. "Any class or occupation that grants Nin Weapons Proficiency as a possible bonus feat will also offer Archaic Weapons Proficiency. Any class that requires Nin Weapons as a prerequisite will also accept Archaic Weapons. This (and the armor proficiencies) represent the 'older' tone of the setting."

And besides, Shinobi Swordsman only requires proficiency with the chosen weapon.

Also, on pg. 744; "A bloodline level doesn't count towards your number of level when determining the power of your bloodline and does not count towards your number of levels when determining the power of spells or techniques, or the maximum rank of technique you can learn. It does, however, count towards determining your ECL (Effective Character Level)."

Ultimately, though, what matters to me most is the depth of the character, and not the length of the character sheet. :P Since the Mibu aren't pre-existing in the setting, It shouldn't be so difficult to justify why they exist in Tanigakure. (Hidden Valley Village just sounds too... delicious.) and feel free to flesh out the clan aplenty. I have some of my own ideas about the fluff of the village, so if you have any questions, feel free to ask. :P

Offline Zaer Darkwail

Ahaa, ok. I make the clan fluff then, take some inspirations what has been revealed about them and how they ended up into village. Anyways I would like introduce Mibu clan kind of trump card of the hidden village same sense as Byakugan is in Leaf village (or Sharingan was).

Offline Inerrant LustTopic starter

That would fit along nicely with some of the ideas I had for Tanigakure, namely;

That it's not a powerful village in its own right, but has a bountiful nation to provide for it. It rose to prominence in the 1st Shinobi World War. After the 2nd Hokage died in battle, the Leaf was conducting a full-scale retreat from the Cloud. The Hidden Rock, seeing this as a perfect opportunity, betrayed the Leaf and cut off their retreat back to the village, forming a massive battle line between the Hokage's forces and their home. Tanigakure came to Konoha's rescue, not in the form of actual manpower, but with vital intelligence on the Iwa formation. This information allowed the 3rd Hokage (Who, at the time, was only about 20 years old) was to lead the entire army virtually undetected through deep enemy territory, an unprecedented feat.

It solidified the Third's reputation and the alliance between Konoha and Tani today. They also fought together against Sunagakure, though the Hidden Sand could have been considered the winner, since Konoha pays them reparations (Set to expire sometime after Part 2.  ::) ::) ::) ) Tanigakure doesn't have to pay such reparations, however...

In short, the 1st Shinobi World War was pretty much everyone against everyone. Except for the Mist Village, which did not participate.

I personally am fond of predetermined HP (d4 = 3; d6 = 4; d8 = 5; d10 = 6; d12 = 7) just because HP is a permanent and unchanging thing across levels. But that tends to screw over the higher die characters.... So you can roll if you're feeling bold. :P

As a note, Action points aren't cumulative. Any leftovers are wasted when you gain a level. And do you mean Hyouton instead of Hyuuton?

And I probably should have mentioned... we already have two players (Mysterica & DigitLninja) and Mysterica has already written up a Moujuu Aishou character, albiet with a wolf instead. I don't have much of a problem, but it is somewhat of a certain niche role, and I'm not sure if you'd like the overlapping in roles. Although obviously an owl would be a little more of the sneaky recon type.

DigitLninja said his character will be thematically in the vein of the ANBU. Sneaky, I would presume. :P

That being said, since this is an effort to 'introduce' Naruto D20 to E as a whole and showcase how worthwhile it can be, I'm not inclined to turn anyone down who wants to play. :P

Also... Elemental Specialization is a bit far off a feat for 4th level. ::)

Have you ever heard of Myth Weavers?

You can sheets that look like this... and not just for Naruto D20 either. It's pretty useful. :P

I could offer suggestions if you know where you want to go from there, too. Like if you're aiming for eventual levels in Elementalist, taking the three levels in Shinobi Adept can end up helping out alot. :P

Now that I think about it... I didn't include chargen rules for Masteries, did I? How about 1d4+Level?

Offline HollowX

Admittedly I want to go for a ice type ninjutsu specialist with a good amount of water and wind type attacks as well, but until I get that feat that lets me ignore the requirements of ice or water being around my character would be pretty pathetic outside of those environments (and considering I don't know what environments we're going to be in...). I will start in on those jutsus when I get the feat, but for now I have to pick carefully *shrugs*.

As to eventual destination, I was thinking a Blink prestige class before I go into elementalist later on, I think the teleporting around would be cool :)

And finally onto character sheet. I would have used the D20 sites if I could, but as it's a pdf the only wayI could think of using it was to print it out, write my character out, and then scan it back in *shrugs*. If I can be pointed into an rp format sheet or a copyable one I'll gladly transfer the stats to that :)


What do you mean about masteries by the way, 1d4+level? And for the Mythweavers, what's the site like, I want to know before I register for it.
And I could go back to the snow owl sheet if you want, I just thought you meant that you preferred me not to have an animal companion by your earlier comment. I could also go the route of having a summoning contract with owls or something to, something I forgot to ask you about earlier :)

And I was asking about the 1d4+level thing. Did you mean roll 1d4 to figure out the mastery of the techniques?

Offline Inerrant LustTopic starter

By all means. :P I encourage homebrewing. I think an Owl bloodpact would probably grant a bonus to move silently, and requirements vaguely in the same vein. I could see a good theme with a teleporting/owl summoning character. Fast and stealthy. The Hyouton could fit in easily enough too, but that whole ice element seems to be a Kiri thing, or more specifically Haku's clan. :P Not that I don't like it. :P In fact, in this game, the Mist hasn't gotten all kill-crazy with civil wars yet, so ice users probably haven't been persecuted there.

Oh, and I meant total masteries. :P Like.. If you rolled 4+4, you could master two techniques up to specialization. Although mastery for each technique is an interesting proposal...  ::)

Offline Zaer Darkwail

I haven't got time to sit and type up my char yet. But I thinked write about the Mibu clan in the Tanigakure.

Mibu Clan of Tanigakure
The Mibu Clan carries a rather unique bloodline heritage which is named after the physical manifestation of said bloodline, Red Eyes. However despite the name the bloodline gives no actual doujutsu ability, but rather the eyes turning from natural color to glowing crimson is sign of intense chakra spike inside person's body and the eyes burn by the excess chakra from such spike which gives person a superior physical prowess. Below is quote from family tome which deals with research and studies of this unique state;











Quote
Mystic Chakra Gate ("ma chakra mon"): All trueblooded descendants of the Mibu possess a secondary chakra network which resides within their soul residing in the intermediary dimension called the Ethereal ("munashigoku"). What is found within the body is merely the physical expression, that stretches itself throughout the body. It is composed of two components the Aether Currents ("akasha nagare") which connect to the body and the chakra circulatory system and then the Aether Core ("akasha kaku") which connect these components to the brain. Within the Mibu and their families the Mystic Chakra Gate acts as the central hub, for all chakra regulation throughout the body, thus Mibu never develop the Eight Celestial Gates, typically found in a normal human being. The Mystic Chakra Gate increases the development of the chakra coils within the Mibu, giving them an additional 108 tenketsu points which serve as the primary connections between the Aether currents and the primary chakra network.

Mibu Clan Akagan ("Red Eyes"): Mibu undergo a mutation at birth which causes the Aether Core increase the amount of Yin chakra flowing and expended in the body. This causes the Mibu to naturally expend large amounts of physical energy derived from the cells. In order to compensate, the body begins to develop and grow additional muscle fibers, and bone marrow to counteract the loss, lest the body be destroyed. Until they reach the age of puberty a Mibu will have terrible control over their chakra, however due to their physiological enhancements, they often possess superhuman acrobatic and athletic skill as compared to others. After puberty is reached the members Aether Core stabilizes, reducing chakra flow to normal levels. At this point the Mibu will undergo training to learn to activate the Aether Core once more, however the increase in chakra flow is ten times that as normal, augmenting their physical capabilities to untold levels. This has made them some of the most formidable warriors of the Mibu Clan, its leaders possessing Bijuu levels of chakra. This state is often compared to the Sage Mode, that some shinobi have been able to achieve, albeit in a naturally occurring state.

Curse of Red Eyes: Mibu clan members who possess the Red Eyes bloodline will suffer a slow mental break down. The channeling of Red Eyes state drives firstly person into madness where he cannot think rationally or focus properly. So it's dual edged sword which causes a ninjutsu skilled ninja to go berserk rage where he cannot use his strongest assets. This naturally drives Mibu clan focus a more taijutsu and other physical forms of combat which remain useful while in Red Eyes state. However the usage of the Red Eyes state also leaves permanent mental damage which over time causes a change of behavior to more violent, delusional or paranoid. More often than not Mibu clan members who have Red Eyes die young, either through reckless battle or driven early to serious deep madness to a point so that Mibu clan shows mercy with gentle execution. This results that Red Eyes is considered both as gift and sign for future tragedy ahead to a youth who develops this power.

However there is expection; Mibu have seen that once every while, around once or twice per generation, one of Mibu clan members possess what is called true Red Eyes. Unlike from rest Mibu clan who can manifest red eyes part of chakra spike, the ones whit true Red Eyes chakra spike does not go down. Instead it becomes a permanent state where their eyes glow constantly by raw chakra power which empowers their bodies untold levels constantly. This results that youth who goes to such permanent red eye state has very difficult time to learn new things and difficult control their chakra overflow influenced emotions. But once youth masters his state they can ascend to powers of greatness which could be compared to prowess of Bijuu. Altough true Red Eyes is not Bijuu technically but in practice when youth manifests such power their lives is very similar to Jinchuuriki; limited, guarded, suspicious and very narrowed into hours of constant training master their mind in their state and also master unique arts which are reserved only those who have true Red Eyes. Which includes Mibu clan only swordstyle which focus on mastering one three elements; Fire, Wind and Water. Because in past any true Red Eye had manifested one those three as natural elemental affinity and developed so the three distinct styles. Even few mastered two element styles.

This unique trait which first natural occurrence has long since faded into myth which tells about first possessor of red eyes had been a oni tainted half-spawn which transferred the burning demonic chakra to it's offsprings which came forth in form of chakra driven rage. This gift was hidden many generations until it started rapidly bloom in descendants during first shinobi war. Naturally people who's eyes started glow red in battle joined up together and formed a singular family to support each other in chaotic times. The family faced many hardships and it ended up form their home into Tanigakure specifically because it was not hidden ninja village at the time and so provided safe place of refuge to war torn hearts and minds.

However they soon discovered that despite moving out of the ways to avoid get involved with shinobi war, it continued spread and go close to the place which they had decided to call home. Villagers at time were helpless and family had hid it's heritage and their war harnessed combat skills to avoid villagers to fear them when they wanted only peacefully coexist with them. After long consideration they decided to make a stand and so they put on their family crest; a red eye with white iris, into their clothes and dressed into armors and picked tools of war once more. So when enemy shinobi chose village as battlefield for their dispute the Mibu clan gave both sides one fair warning to back off. One side agreed while other did not, the ninjas attacked the village because they had guts to challenge them.....villagers huddled together inside their houses when shinobi forces approached with bloodlust and prideful anger.

Mibu clan then displayed themselves in nameless shinobi armor and arms and made direct attack on enemy from ambush! Showing ruthless display of taijutsu along with their natural glowing eyes adding frightening appearance to their forces and using it to their advantage they inspired fear in enemy and made enemy forces back off with some large loses to Mibu clan in that day. Several close family members, mostly very young or very old, had died. After display of such selfless act to protect the village the villagers did not fear the red glowing eyed Mibu clan and instead accepted them as their protectors. A duty which Mibu clan gracefully accepted.

Over time Mibu clan formed average shinobi corps which they trained and it slowly but gradually transformed Tanigakure from average village into a hidden village with it's unique form of governance where town mayor was same as kage. Some disgruntled and ambitious Mibu clan members question this because of their position as guardians they expected to be rulers of the village and so far village law forbids the Mibu clan ever to be a kage of the very village which they protect! However elders of the clan made decision long time ago keep the arm which protects the village and the arm which governs separated. So ironically this can lead that altough kage can be very strong in their village, but the Mibu clan champion may be stronger than the kage.

Whoa. :P

First off, I thank you for putting all the time and effort into just the fluff. It's refreshing. ;D

The Kawa Daimyo, I had imagined, is fairly totalitarian. In a lot of ways similiar to Hanzo, having to deal with multiple powerful neighbors. Part of his strength is the information network that helped him win Konoha's trust in the past war. Obviously a village like Tanigakure can't really stand up to the sheer manpower of Suna or Konoha, so many Tani Ninja have, I would assume, an emphasis on intelligence-gathering type skills. The Daimyo himself seeks omniscience in his techniques... Anyways,

He's fairly old (60-ish I would say), having been a veteran of the First Shinobi War (Which happened 15 years prior to the campaign...) and I imagine he and the Mibu would have clashed often since the village was founded. The Daimyo might even be the sort of paranoid bastard to attempt an Uchiha-type massacre. But it'd be difficult for him to accomplish that through a brute-force solution. The idea of the Mibu being the 'military arm' of the village would make him very uncomfortable. He's a bit of a control freak. ;)

I mean, I AM trying to nudge the party into eventually leaving Tanigakure to travel around the world. ::)

So there's possibly a potential plot in there about the tensions between the Mibu and the Daimyo... If you're interested.  ::)

Offline Zaer Darkwail

Ok, I understand :). If the Kawa Daimyo is indeed like Hanzo and bit paranoid control freak he would not like Mabi family much at all because Mabi family has simply power which he cannot never copy; a bloodline. A very potent bloodline in fact.

It's by his influence he had become kage of the village and kept Mabi family not gain even single influence there, but because Mabi family guards the village with their life they have kind of folk hero status there and he feels this popularity towards them instead of him could be source of jealousy and fear Mabi will eventually take control of things.

Reason why Mabi family tolerates this is because Kawa Daimyo brings balance between being small nation and ninja village and he is indeed good organizer and has keen head and charisma for negotiations with other ninja villages (despite Mabi's personal dislike for it but they approve it as Konohan is a ally worth of respect by their view). So they are inside nation outcastes who work as guardians and have own training for their youths who have above average chakra and temperament which needs to be tamed properly before send out into field.

Anyways I thinked solution for the problem I have +3 LA which is kinda crippling when rest are 4th level. How sounds we change True Red Eyes so that it does not give a 'constant' output but simply removes the 'madness' related to Red Eye state and also side effect those without True Red Eye feat gradually go mad from the power (more faster if they use their state more often). So removal of madness but otherwise normal duration (or perhaps become a stance so it can last a long time but cannot held up forever). So it would not bring the increased LA (and so have only advance human template which gives +1 which is more toleratable).

I leave up to GM decide how my char splits from the village but the Uchiha-type massacre could be possible (or coup attempt from Mabi which backfires and Mabi family gets reduced a lot and everyone scatters).

Offline Inerrant LustTopic starter

As far as the duration goes... Red Eyes adds +2 temporary Con, which is equal to your HD in temporary chakra. Which pretty much means you can use it 'free of cost' for a number of rounds equal to your level. (And twice your level at 18 :P) So I'm not too keen on extending the duration.

So something like this?

Benefit: While using the Red Eyes ability, the character retains his concentration normally, and is still able to perform techniques with the Concentration components, and use the Concentration skill and Intelligence-, Wisdom- and Charisma-based skills.

Mibu is always such a popular bloodline. My first character was actually a True Red Eyes... but he destroyed both of his eyes to hide his identity since he couldn't turn the red blinkers off. ::) Although it isn't a doujutsu and technically that shouldn't effect it, he mechanically operated as if blind and bloodline-less. :P

Actually, True Red Eyes is a specific branch of the clan. It seems exceedingly rare, even for Red Eyes which is supposed to be very rare in of itself. Perhaps the ability to use it without going mad is less of a thing you're born with and more of a thing that you train to control. It would probably be a feat, and maybe not one readily available at the earliest opportunity (it takes time and experience afterall to master one's own emotions...)

As far as the details of it go, I'm not sure at the moment. I must go to sleep. :P

Offline Zaer Darkwail

I would be fine if you can train for 'true red eyes' and it instead is feat which enchances the bloodline ability. Remove basically it's flaw. It could have req like 8 concentration ranks before you can take it. Also it would not make duration permament so it would not increase LA at all (but still doing permament red eyes on person who masters his power). However it would mean edit little the background to do so.
