The Era of Peace (Naruto 5e)

Game NameThe Era of Peace (Naruto 5e)
Game SystemDnD 5e
ThemeKeeping the peace amidst the ever-present chaos of change
FlavourSemi-serious anime, with some politics for seasoning.
Plot SummaryThe Fourth Shinobi War is history. Recent history for sure, but history none the less. The scars over the land have started to scab over, and the graves of those lost have truly turned cold. It is into this world that you have come into your own. You are a freshly minted genin, just given a headband and not even assigned to an instructor yet. You are the first class to be trained and graduate from the Konohagakure Ninja Academy since the Five Great Nations came to peace over the need to destroy a powerful enemy, the first class to graduate into this new era of peace.

But the peace that war and bloodshed bought is tenuous, as it often is. While the shared brotherhood of war has bound the Kage of the Five Great Nations, many of the smaller nations that surround them look on in suspicion and fear. And let us not forget that nature abhors a vacuum, and where the Akatsuki once loomed now a number of malcontents fight in the shadows for power as the world settles into it's new place. While the Fourth Shinobi War may be the last great war, it looks as though there still might be a place for ninja in this new era.



Greetings all, EmmaRae here looking to drop some hot stylish anime fun in your lap. And what better place than to jump in than some Naruto fun. We will be using the Shinobi Handbook, which is built around DnD 5e, so if your comfortable with that you should be fine. Ability scores will be generated using the Point-Buy system detailed on page 12. Cutoff date for applications is Friday, July 9th at Midnight EST. Average posting rate should be around 1-2/week.

Character CreationName: I personally prefer the Japanese methodology of Surname first, but that's just me being a weirdo.
Clan: Any of the listed Clans are allowed, though some will require a lot more legwork on your part to try and sell me than others.
Class: All starting at Level 1 here.
Background: Only the ones from the Shinobi Handbook
Description: Pictures are fine, but I need some text.
Backstory: Tell me about your ninja's upbringing. For the sake of chronology, we are three years after the end of the Fourth Shinobi War and just a few months after the events of The Last (Late May, to be exact).
RP Sample: Show me one formative event in your young ninja's life so far.

This sounds like it could be really cool! I'm putting down interest for now, although I do confess my grasp of the Naruto timeline is a little shaky.

My understanding of the Naruto universe is based entirely on watching some of the anime with my kids as they grew up. It looks fascinating though. What kind of post rate were you looking for?

Though I don't know much of Naruto, having had a quick look through the sourcebook it looks really interesting. I'd be up for it if you don't mind someone without much pre existing knowledge of the show.

Do Uchiha PCs have to be Sasuke's children? Or is this an alternate continuity, where more of the clan survived?

Character CreationName: Yuki Botan

Clan: Yuki Clan – Cold to the Bone

Class: Level 1 Ninjutsu Specialist

Background: Urchin

Ambition: "I wish to rebuild the Yuki."

Drive: "I want to finally have a real home."

Current Goals: "Learn to master my Kekkei Genkai." "Complete my first mission."

Fears: "I'm afraid that if I can't restore the Yuki and master my Kekkei Genkai, I'll never have a real home or family."

Description: Botan only just started their growth spurt, a flower blooming a little later than the others, but no less beautiful. Possessing stern icy blue eyes and hair the color of watermelon snow, white with subtle streaks of pink, which they keep tied back in a tight ponytail. Once gawkish and clumsy Botan has grown twelve centimeters in the last year of training, coming into their own as a fluid mover capable of twisting and contorting into odd positions with quick adjustments – something one comes to expect of skilled shinobi. Choosing clothes for form and function as well as fashion, they wear a bleached layer of padded armor over their mesh under armor shirt, which in the land of Konoha is often left unbuttoned. Dark black pants with cold blue side stripes accentuate the stark contrast of Botan’s fairer features.

Backstory: Yuki Botan is an orphan. Not so uncommon in the remnants of the world after the last great shinobi war. Thousands of shattered families wandered the world as refugees and many places offered to take people in, and one of those places was Konohagakure. Little did the Leaf ninja suspect that one of those refugee children was s child of a survivor of the Ice Releasekekkei genkai genocide that took place in the Land of Water. Botan was barely five years old when they arrived in the city of Konohagakure – right after the conclusion of the war. Their parents are nothing more than a dream etched in the snowbanks of their memories. A smiling face here; a laugh there; the reflection of their own face in ice mirrors.

Time went on for Botan, and as it was for the other refugee children, and life was hard. Sleeping on rooftops, hiding in the alleys, stealing, and begging for food – it seemed they were destined to live out this meager life until one day an unsuspecting thug was on the receiving end of Botan’s Wind Release that the shinobi realized that this no-clan refugee child had the making of a great shinobi, but they had yet to understand just how precious and rare this winter flower was.

RP Sample: Summertime Snow

Ordinarily a child gifted enough to use an elemental release, even by accident, would have been fast tracked through the academy, but not so for Botan – they had no family support, no clan sponsor, no tutors, nothing whatsoever. Even so Botan made it to graduation day, they had become a genin, but that didn’t stop the other children from picking on them, especially that Hyūga – thinking that his Byakugen was so great.

How can one such as you ever compare to the genius of a Hyūga, you clan-less scum.



Can’t even speak up for yourself – how did you ever even become a shinobi? Did the elders take pity on you?



I bet your parents didn’t even die in the war, they just left you abandoned by the side of the road!

A single snowflake fell from the sky between the two children.

Then, Botan’s eyes hardened like black ice, and a blizzard erupted in the school yard – their latten power erupting not as a hurricane but as the cursed kekkei genkai that lead to the downfall of their clan. All at once the little Hyūga was encased in ice, his byakugen frozen wide in terror.

The Ice Prison Hijutsu faded as quickly as it had arrived but the field full of graduates stood with their mouths agape, as surprised as Botan about what just happened. It took only moments for the instructors to encircle the boys, and a few clay masks appeared hidden in the treetops.

The true power of Botan was now known by all – they were Botan, potentially the last remaining member of the Yuki.

Okay, some answers to questions:

OtherwiseApple: I've actually added a link to the exact point in the timeline where we are (it also goes to the timeline as a whole). We are basically right after the birth of Boruto and Sarada (though I may change Boruto's terrible name, I still haven't decided yet.

Kepheren: 1-2/week average, and I've added that to the OP as well.

Chevaliers: Go for it! It's always great to see multiple perspectives you know?

Kaiya Okay, so remember when I said certain Clans will take a bit more work than others? Yeah, Uchiha are at the top of that list. As long as your explanation makes sense in the canon (ie Sasuke or Itachi's bastard children, some long lost cousin who's parent was away at the time of the Massacare, something like that) I'll respect it.

I might just make a Hyuuga, then. I'm afraid that any explanation I contrive will be too...Marysueish.

Sir this is naruto. If your OC isn’t the secret child of itatchi and a hyuga girl with a sharingan in one eye and a byakugan in the other are you really trying?


And also I’m a huge naruto fan and when I watched it when I was younger I would always make up OCs in my head. I’ll definitely see about getting an application in.

So, a question for the group as a whole. I only know so much about the series and characters. Do you know of anywhere to find decent fan art that could be used for original characters? I have a fear of finding a picture to use and then hearing "Oh, that is so & so from episode 3978" or some such thing. o.O

No disrespect to Wodine's application but I have the bare bones of a Yuki bouncing around in my head and am trying to flesh it out a bit while I pretend to work from home.

Well, I'm totally willing to go the Uchiha route as Shisui's body was never found and I'm not convinced he's really dead anyway, so... but I won't because it looks less interesting than I imagined when I look at the actual rules. A Hoshigaki (with perhaps a little Hatake mixed in somewhere) looks like more fun.

Application - WiP
left-aligned image
Name: Hoshigaki Raisame
Clan: Hoshigaki
Class: (Tactical) Scout-Nin/(Lightning Breaker) Ninjutsu Specialist
Background: Genius
Description: Like other Hoshigaki ninja, Raisame is covered in placoid scales that allow him to swim faster and more quietly than others. His scales are a tan color like those of a sand tiger shark, and he has medium-length, silver hair pushed up by his headband. He has blue eyes framed by the usual face markings and gills on his shoulders. He is muscular but with a slender frame that belies the true extent of his strength.
Backstory: Tell me about your ninja's upbringing. For the sake of chronology, we are three years after the end of the Fourth Shinobi War and just a few months after the events of The Last (Late May, to be exact).
RP Sample: Show me one formative event in your young ninja's life so far.
