Rules Book
Rules Book



More info:
This is a homebrew naruto game using a homebrew D20 system (and not modern D20). Created by me it is very homebrew and open for creative ideas. I am looking for 3 players (for a one team), You will each be starting as a recently promoted to Genin in Sunagakure Village of the wind country. Im looking for people who have a general/excellent knowledge of the naruto world. You are only limited by your creativity with regards to your character. (All material from the naruto universe, including filler and manga will be allowed)
also think outside of the box (i will prioritise creative ideas first and will give some inspiration below), You can even learn to become a sage. You can also make up your own clan if you like as well (Im really looking for out of the box idea, eg: character idea for similar to what im looking for creative wise).

Character example
Orikarua: A 12 year old boy, a orphan found one day floating on the ruins of a boat when he was found by local fisherman.

Powers: -Based off Electro from spiderman, His body can become electricity via bloodline and secret clan technique (Long since thought lost), -Based of Suigetsu water body.
Wears rubber clothing to protect others from contact when his powers first manifested, he uses electric signals with chakra as a sensor (similar style to sonar/electric signal).

Leleivia: A female ninja born into the Nara clan, but with the unique bloodline which not only allows her to manipulate her shadow and control people by their shadows, but also steal them to power herself, making herself stronger. -Inspiration: Moria from One piece.

Powers: mix of shikimaru with using Yin bloodline to be able absorb shadows of people whose shadows she has absorbed.


This game will be based on a lot of communication between DM and players, regarding future paths, powers and other options.
There is only 3 restrictions in the game, 1) No jinjuriki(They are just overpowered for what they give, and tend to break the game), No Shirigan or Rinnegan.

Character Start up quick guide:
Character Creation: This is the process for creating a brand new character, a Genin fresh from the academy. Country, Village and Rank is normally decided by the DM, Type can be changed at any time by the player. Missions should be set to zero.

When creating your character, there are 2 options, both are available, eg: you can do the roll method 1st and if not roll well then you can do point system.

Method 1: Roll 7 x 3d6 (reroll any totals that are below 10) [until above 10] for your attributes. -You then choose 3 attributes and add +1 to those attributes.

Method 2: Point Buy: You have 25 points to spend, see table below (0 points = 11).
0 = 11|1 = 12|2 = 13|3 = 14|4 = 15|5 = 16|6 = 17|7 = 18



The character has an affinity for one of the five elements. Selected by the player, each player will start with 1 point in element chosen, whilst those with blood line will start with 1 point in Blood.

Players get to choose 2 skills and add +2 to those skills then select 1 skill and add +1 to that skill.

Now the player must select 2 Traits (from Birth Selection), and 1 trait (from Advanced selection), the player also receives 23 Ryo to spend on any items on the list, you also get a free backpack/bedding.


Character App:
What I want from players for apps:
Name: Character name

Age:Genin on average are between 10-12 years old.

Description: Description of your character, Feel free to add pictures if you like.

Personality: Personality of your character.

Background: background of your character, Your character backstory must include that your from Sunagakure.

Writing Sample: This is to give me a look and feel for your character, and how they interact with people.
-These are all make and break for your app. Creativity is key, as well as complete apps.

ALSO:
Each player will start with 3 powers. 1 tool, 1 specialization based on your elemental attribute/character design or Trait taken and one utility(based on your elemental attribute/character design or Trait taken). So be Creative, I will discuss power and damage/scale up or scale down power as need be.
-You will also receive a few academy level ninjutsu as well which will be shown for those that get into the game.
Choose ideas and you and me can discuss about them, so we balance them out and get them properly worked out(Eg: chakra cost, damage, hand seals and similar stuff, as well as progression). This is an open based game, with lots of dm/player interaction.


Extra
Due to the fact that the rules are completely homebrew, things may change as beta tests usually do, to balance things out, but I will only exercise this, if there is a clear issue.
Eg: had issues with trying to balance people making exploding tag grenades.


 




Closing date for apps is 25th of January.

RyuName: Ryu Reinhard

Age: 12

Description: Ryu is average height for his age and of athletic build. He wears a black fur lined hoodie and has brown cargo shorts, its pretty hot in the desert after all. His skin is lightly tanned from all of the sun he tends to get and has black hair with red highlights, while his eyes are a natural green color.

 


Personality: Ryu is an ace student when it comes to test and questions, but doesn't understand subtle hints and gestures thus his nickname of the idiotic genius. When it comes to people he always favors a logical approach to things rather than an emotional one, always taking needed time to plan ahead and not make a hasty mistake. This isn't to say he is completely oblivious to peoples feelings, just that he tends to solve a problem first and deal with feelings later. He also has an almost cynical and cocky personality.

Background: With the threat of war between the Sand, Sound and Leaf finally over and the Sand and Leaf now cooperating one must wonder what happened before the attack started. Before war nations develop new technologies, strategies and other ways to get an edge in battle. Ninja of the Sand attempted to produce new types of ninjutsu.

I take you to a lab where orphaned children were used as experiments the particular experiment Ryu was subject to was named project split tail. In the experiment children were given small quantities of the Shukaku's chakra. Some were killed by the experiment and turned into sand sculptures, others developed no special powers and were dropped from the program and added to others. People like Ryu who could manipulate the sand in glass were placed into the academy to train their abilities further.

With the peace between the leaf and sand secured Ryu's purpose was now to just be a regular ninja. Attend the academy, make friends that kind of stuff. The experiments and examinations which controlled most of his early youth were now gone. He had no idea how talking to people was supposed to work. Does he say hello first? Do they say hello first? Does it even matter? Turns out it doesn't matter who says hi first, the person spoken to will repeat it anyway. All of the time at the academy he made very few friends due to his leaving after acing every exam which the other students found to be snobbish as if he was too good to help them with their studies, when in reality he was just going off to produce glass shards for his technique.

Powers:
Specialization (Glass Style: A thousand little cuts): Using available glass or by making his own Ryu releases a torrent of glass chips at an opponent causing multiple small wounds or on large one. The large wound does more overall damage, while the multiple small wounds do less and make it difficult to concentrate.

Utility (Glass Style: Ice spikes) Covers an area in glass shards preventing successful movement. Any spaces moved through the area are at half speed and if going full speed risk stepping on a spike. Stepping on a spike causes the person to move at half speed until the spike is removed and the wound is healed in any way.

Tool (Glass Style: Glass Sword) Multiple shards of glass form together into a blade that can be wielded and used to attack. The sword isn't made of normal glass and has been hardened.

WIP

Application - Ishi JikankeiName: Ishi Jikankei
right-aligned image


Age: 12

Description: Ishi on the whole is rather average looking for a twelve year old genin. He is neither short nor tall and is neither overweight nor skinny. Being a Genin Ishi is a in good shape but as of yet has not developed any real muscle definition beyond being in good shape for a kid. Being from Suna and living in a warm desert environment Ishi's skin is somewhat tanned. His hair is dark brown and he keeps it relatively short and unstyled. Ishi's most notable feature is his vibrant bright yellow eyes which tend to stand out.

Clothing wise Ishi favours light clothing most often consisting of a pair a shorts and a short sleeved top with concealed mesh armour.

Personality: Ishi is a very confident individual and has a very competitive nature. He likes to be the best at everything and desires to be incharge. Despite these traits Ishi is generally a nice guy and while he has a competitive streak he does care about the feelings of others and though he wishes to succeed he wants to do it in a way that is not to the detriment of others.

Background: Ishi was born in to the Jikankei clan, the Jikankei clan were one of Suna's oldest clans however in recent generations both their numbers and power had been dwindling. Most Jikankei ninja were decidedly average ninja with no special powers however every so often a recessive bloodline of the Jikankei would express itself resulting in a kekkei genkai known as the sands of time. These ninja unlike the rest of their clan were often exceptionial in both skill and power and it was due to wielders of this bloodline that Jikankei had even become an important clan in Suna in the first place.

From a very early age it was discovered that Ishi was an active user of the sands of time bloodline. Due to this fact Ishi recieved special training from the clan as soon as he was old enough. While Ishi was trained in all aspects of being a ninja the clan paid spell focus on drawing out the power of Ishi's kekkei genkai. This training was often incredibly strict and harsh even bordering on brutal however Ishi did not see it this way. Ishi liked the attention perhaps even thrived on it and as he grew older the youngs boy's desire to grow stronger quickly grew.

When the ninja academy in Suna reopened Ishi was thrilled to join and was incredibly excited to show the other chidren his age that he was the best. When the academy first began Ishi butted heads with a lot of other students as he attempted to prove that he was the best. Ishi quickly split the academy in to two groups those who looked up to him and respected him for his skill or those who were jealous of them or antagonised by Ishi's desire to be the best. Ishi would often infuriate his rivals in the academy due to the unusual strategies he could employ thanks to his blood line. Ishi seemed to have a pattern of creating rivalries with Taijutsu types and though Ishi was not the best taijutsu user in the class when he was able to use his kekkei genkai he could literally run circles around them.

Writing Sample: Ishi lounged in the chair in the small room of the rudimentary sandstone building that made up one of the academy classrooms. The door and the windows were all sealed shut and there was absolutely no air circulation what so ever, that combined with the fact that the room was currently packed full with academy students and instructors made it unbearably hot so much so that Ishi could not even consider concentrating on his work. Not that concentrating would help... he had already looked at the exam paper and he didn't know the answer to a single question.

Leaning back in his chair further so that he was almost at the point where it would tip over and fall the young academy student focussed on a bead of sweat that was running down his forehead. Once the drop had reached his nose the young boy shook his head and flicked the drop in to mid air.

Ishi smirked as he watched the drop hang in mid air and refuse to fall heedless of gravity's call. Hopping out of his chair Ishi glanced about smirk widening as he looked at his classmates and teachers frozen in place.

"Hope you don't mind if I borrow this!" Ishi declared as he snatched the exam paper from infront of Ryuu one of the smartest students in the class. Switching papers Ishi hurried back to his seat. The young Genin hopeful then watched as the bead of sweat suddenly abruptly dropped out of the air and splashed upon the floor.

Quickly reading through his stolen paper Ishi watched Ryu out of the corner of his eye noting the boy's confusion and growing panic.

With a sigh Ishi activated his jutsu once again and trudged back over to Ryuu switching their papers for the second time.

Returning to his seat Ishi then began to furiously scribble down the answers certainly not an enjoyable activity given the heat but he still found the energy to chuckle slightly at the look of relief and intense confusion on Ryu's face.

Bloodline: Sands of Time - Ishi was born with a very rare affinity for space time ninjutsu. Ishi's powers however primarily revolve around the manipulation of time. Due to his powers Ishi is often mistakenly taken for a speedster type due to his ability to be one place one second and somewhere else the next or due to the speed at which he seems to be able to respond to everything.

Powers:

Specialisation: Ninja art time stop - By channeling his chakra Ishi is able to surround himself in a bubble of space time ninjustus that effectively places himself outside the normal flow of time. While this is in effect Ishi is able to act freely while everything else is relatively frozen in time. This affect is broken as soon as Ishi causes any physical harm.

Utility: Ninja art future sight - Focusing chakra in to his eyes Ishi is able to see glimpses of the future. Amongst other things this allows Ishi to see attacks coming before they are launched and how an opponent will defend themselves.

Tool: Temporal displacement - Surrounding his weapons in a bubble of space time chakra Ishi is able to speed up the flow of time around them. This makes the weapons appear as though they are moving at incredible speeds.
