    Setting

    The physical setting is homebrew. Material is used selectively from the show. We're in a low fantasy game, with the goal of making the players major players fairly quickly.

    The PCs are fresh faced genin for the Village in the Marsh, an older and more powerful village that uses its swampy terrain as much as anything to hide and protect it. There's concerns with the rate of death recently that has lead Yamanaka to only graduate students who can actually perform at the level their place will require them to. There are 6 major ninja villages in total, most in extreme environmments

    Village Hidden in Ash: perhaps the most powerful ninja village, it is hidden near the Royal Capital city and houses the Uchiha, the largest clan, among others. Little is known about them to genin except for the fact that the King favours it as his closest protector

    Village in the Ridge: houses giants and Akimichi, hidden atop the tallest mountain. Rumour has it Rikku Li hails from there originally. They are known for extreme physical strength and endurance, and make good soldiers, but have fewer good infiltrators. Or at least that's what they'd have you believe.

    The villages in more recent times have been united under the crown of the fire king and largely assimilated into the armed forces. Young ninja are generally taught loyalty to the state before their village and even their clan, though how well that takes is quite variable. Still, the villages generally prefer peace to being in constant war with each other. The presence of the king means there are laws that must be adhered to on missions, though are waived depending on the rank of the mission

    The Deepswamp: there are levels to the swamp even the hardiest ninjas dare not venture into. The deepswamp houses insane savages, often with odd bloodlines. A few 'blankfolk' have emerged from teh swamp, often to be hidden away by the old matron of the orphanage to avoid persecution, or are else cast away; they are amnessiacs, often with strange abilities themselves, and are believed to be swampfolk with redeemed sanity but not memory. It is said venturing too far into the Deepswamp will claim your sanity.

    A lot of the setting is yet unfluffed so feel free to makeup elements as you please in backstory.

    Each village has maybe 1 to 3 jounin, perhaps a handful of special jounin, and dozens of chuunin and genin at their disposal. With 3 Jounin, the Village has something of an internal council to keep it in check and a sign of their lasting power. Most prominent in public is Yamanaka Seno (the 'White Captain'), the woman in charge of the hospital.

    That's all the setting i could think to add for now. I'll answer further questions as they come

    Established clans/bloodlines in the village: Kamitora (largely inert), Nara and Yamanaka, Hivemind, and basically any you happen to be interested in. Swampfolk have crazy powers, but we already have one of those. I'll give more clan info when you start exploring town and making ninja lore checks, I don' want y'all to feel to constrained here

    Chargen

    4d6b3 for each stats, roll 2 sets and take the better (in fairness)

    I compressed a lot of skills into 'fields' in the interest of reducing skill tax, see below for list

    Survival

    Tinkering (Int)
    Disable Device
    Repair
    Demolition
    Note: Crafting can now be used to repair objects of the appropriate object category even without tinkering, at a -4 penalty.


    For PCs and Heroic NPCs, gain following benefits:
    One feat every odd-numbered level in place of the normal progression of feats
    Two +1 bonuses to two DIFFERENT stats of your choice every even level

    ---
    Feat redesigns:

    Toughness. Now gives 4+Con modifier HP (minimum 3HP, no more than triple your current level). This amount increases by 2 for each previous instance of Toughness taken. (so the second instance gives a maximum of 6+Con mod).
    Notes:Changes dynamically with Con (i.e. if you gain +4 Constitution (increasing modifier by +2) then each instance of Toughness gives an additional +2HP). Likewise, if the HP you would receive exceeds the 'triple your level' limit, then update the amount that instance of Toughness gives you when your level increases

    Improved Chakra Pool. Now gives 3+Con mod (minimum 2) bonus chakra, and 2 bonus reserve. Every instance taken increases the chakra AND reserve gained by 1 each.
    Note: A character with Will over Flesh can use their Wis mod instead to determine the bonus chakra, at their option when taking the feat.

    Got three deadlines on April 29th, an exam on May 11th, and possibly surgery shortly afterwards. Posting will be slow for a while, sorry. After that though I'll be graduated (and unemployed) and be plenty capable of making up for lost time.

    Here's the IC

    http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showt...5#post14604545

    the last paragraph is just there as a default. It'll occur when we're ready to move forward, after everyone's made a post.

    Why don't you all introduce yourselves? get into character for a bit, maybe even interact with your fellow PCs. That's why I gave you the 10 minutes, after all.

    If you've got any preference of who's on which team (still haven't finalised that) now would be a good time to get to know the people you suspect you'll be hanging out with the most

    Nah, it works just fine I think. You're in the room. The PCs are graduating now. The people in the class were rather specifically chosen to attend that day because they're ready, to some degree or another, to face the genin exams. Your character may be the youngest person present, but that's the situation as it stands

    Oh yeah, and everyone can make a Current Events (DC10) or Ninja Lore (DC15) [pick one, current events can be made untrained] to know about the proposal to graduate ahead of schedule. Normally graduation happens in Spring, you see, but times they are a-changin'.

    Here's Tojo. When he became a monk as a child he left behind his surname. Let me know if there's anything missing.

    And I guess I'll take this color.

    17 year old Tojo and Enkouchi are gonna have tons of fun, especially since the 12 year old is stronger. At least Tojo is (slightly) faster.

    Edit-Why would you want to be 10?

    More of a random thought; how useful would having Tozawa take ranks in fuuinjutsu be?, Can you seal items into scrolls(to make carrying them easier) without it?

    Not without fuinjutsu - not to my knowledge, anyway. Go for it. I suggest you take Sealweaver.

    To be more clear, you haven't graduated yet.

    I would recommend beefing up your age to 13 or 14 though. 10 year olds have a limited roleplaying range.

    I'll see if I have any ranks I could move around, if not, then I'll work on getting a few as we level up nd such.
