  2. Hi everyone, I'm happy that this site is getting a new breath of life. It's encouraging to see it coming back and people getting to back to role playing again. But with that said, I am leaving. I've gotten the chance to role play with a lot of really cool people and do a lot of interesting missions, and I'm thankful for that. However, I feel like we've been missing the point of all of this. This is all to tell fun stories together. But lately it feels like a slew of drama and the character system has gotten in the way of that. I had trouble setting up role plays because people were so scared of where this site was going. And it wasn't anyone person, and it wasn't faulty staff, it was because everyone -including myself- got frustrated that we weren't where we wanted to be that we threw our hands up and stopped caring. But lately there has been blame going around. First Yuri, now Kabel. It's fine to disagree with the way they've handled things. But it is still important to treat everyone with respect. I understand why the community choose to replace the kage in Flame, but I feel that it could have been handled with more respect towards Yuri. I felt bad that she had to leave on a sour note, especially when she already had a tough time in her real life. I also regret not telling her this when I had the chance. I feared that it wouldn't mean much coming from a stranger but looking back I think that it would have meant a great deal. And it was never necessary to call Kabel a tyrant. It was fine to disagree with him and his methods. An open discussion is always okay. We're people, we deserve to speak. Our thoughts and feelings are valid. But there was nothing to gain by name calling. At the end of the day, we're all people. No one should be made to feel over something as trivial as this. Even if his actions weren't popular, it wasn't right for us to make him feel like he didn't belong here anymore. We all deserve to feel welcomed and happy to be here. We have the power to brighten other people's days. We should make the most of this. I'm not saying any of this to make anyone feel bad. No one here is a bad person. I want to remind everyone that we can be better. I've seen a lot of people here go above and beyond to help welcome someone. I feel optimistic about the site regaining its footing again. I hope activity bumps up again and everyone can play their characters how they want. And I hope that this message reminds everyone to show just a little more compassion the next time things get frustrating. We're stronger than we think we are, we are capable of using that strength to raise others up. I'm sorry I won't be continuing with you all anymore, but I don't feel like this is the right place for me anymore. I wish you all luck.

    "Whoever used this place was a water specialist," Kazuo said, as he set down a scroll on top of the neat pile he had been forming. "For whatever reason they were looking up water jutsus. They must have been looking for something specific because-" He stopped mid-sentence, looking down at something he had uncovered from underneath the scrolls. It was a note, 'Watch as we burn everything down.' Oh no. "We have to get back. NOW!" And without explaining any further, Kazuo ran out of the hut as fast as he could. The note had to have been recent, as there were no signs of any criminal ninjas when Kazuo and Kenji were last there. As far as he could tell, the two suspected criminal nins were at odds. This wasn't good. The whole town could be burning down at the moment. In an area like this with strong, dry winds a fire could cause immense damage. Kazuo pushed himself to go faster and faster, ignoring the pain in his legs. He kept telling himself that there was no time to lose. He was in such a rush that he didn't even pay attention if Kenji was following behind him or not. He reached the edge of the village in only 15 minutes. His breaths were ragged and his face was all red. Even with all the cold he was sweating all over. In the middle of the village he saw a stream of fire and a stream of water collide. Thankfully there wasn't a single building on fire but that could all change in a moment. He could hardly see the two criminal nin from the distance he was at but they seemed equally skilled. And worse, they seemed more skilled than Kazuo or Kenji. "Where's those reinforcements?" Kazuo asked through gritted teeth. They should have arrived by now. It looked like they would have to either deal with this on their own or stall until somebody did come. They needed to come up with a plan of attack. "Our choices here are limited. We can either split up and handle one enemy each or we can team up on the fire specialist. He's the most dangerous threat to the town. Either way this will be a tough fight."
  4. Mission Name | No-knock Warrant Mission Village | Water Mission Type | Village Mission Ranking | B-rank Repeatable? | Yes Mission Description | The Water Military Police has been tracking an individual of great reknown within the underworld, who has made a fortune out of organizing illegal competitions using a makeshift arena located somewhere in the Frost Forest. You are tasked with infiltrating a no-rules battle-royale type of tournament adopting the role of a either a participant or local gambler, and are expected to set everything up for the WMP to successfully raid the place some time later. Objectives include identifying targets of interest and their location, finding a way to establish contact with the Police in order to deliver a signal, prepare a suitable distraction for when the time comes and seal any exit routes the criminals could use to escape. It is mandatory to keep one's identity as a Ninja concealed at all times, so the use of Jutsu in the open is restricted. You'll also be searched at the entrance, so refrain from bringing ninja-exclusive gear that would blow your cover. The place is guarded by multiple corrupt C-rank Shinobi from the Water Village. They can identify Ninjutsu on sight. Do not engage in combat with them until the Water Police arrives. Mission NPCs | Multiple C-rank Shinobi [Varied specialties]; D-rank Tournament Participants [No special abilities]; Bandit boss [Non-combative] Word Count | 1000 Words Requirements | A squad is mandatory for this mission. --- Players: Kazuo Enomoto, @Tenri --- It appeared to be a small hut in the woods but reports claimed that it contained a staircase leading down to an underground fighting arena. It seemed that they took the term underground fighting ring literally. Honestly, Kazuo was impressed with the extent that these criminals went through in order to hide this. It seemed to have paid off for them. This fighting ring had been going on for years and the Water Village only found out about it recently. But now Kazuo and Tenri were going to put a stop to it by the end of the day. They were to infiltrate the fighting ring. Kazuo had decided to join in as a combatant. And to be a convincing combatant he disguised himself, not with a transformation jutsu but through actual, practical means. So he tied his hair back in a pony tail and smeared black war paint across his eyes and bridge of his nose. One look in the mirror was enough to verify that it would pass for a good enough disguise. Even Kazuo had trouble recognizing himself. He even went the extra mile to wear an outfit that looked tough. He got an old pair of black pants with tears on the knees, a pair of combat boots, and went without a shirt. Fortunately, he had a winter jacket to keep him for freezing, but he would have to forgo that the moment he got inside. Hopefully it was warmer in there than it was out in the forest. Tenri, on the other hand, was to disguise herself as a gambler. She would have to flair up her appearance. Kazuo trusted her to do a good job at that. Honestly, he wasn't sure how extravagant she would get. He could picture her coming in with a cloak glittering with gold. With her it was more of a question if she would dress up too much. But it may actually work to their advantage if she over acted. It may give off a naive cockiness that would fool everyone. The plan was that they would come in as a pair. Tenri would come in with Kazuo as her fighter, placing her bets on him. For this mission, they actually got their reward money beforehand. That was what they would be using to bet on. Tenri already had both halves of their money so all that she would need to do is bet it all on Kazuo during his first match. Kazuo shivered. He looked around the tree he was leaning on, taking another glance at the hut. It was definitely the right place. He saw three Water Shinobi enter it ten minutes ago. Only he and Tenri were on this mission so that meant they were either here to gamble or act as protection. Either way it would be dangerous to be caught before reinforcements arrive. Once Tenri got here they would go over the specifics of the plan and head inside. Since Kazuo had the password he would have to lead them inside.

  6. It looked like the fire practice would be put on hold for the time being. Hajita had other priorities. Sure it was only the first form, but it was still an important development for her. It was her first step in unlocking the full potential of her bloodline. Plus, it was a good chance for Kazuo to learn more about it. Sure, the Uchiha were mostly in the Water Village and he doubted he would even need to fight one, but it wouldn't hurt to prepare just a little. Besides, it would be good training for Hajita. "That means you can see chakra, correct? If that's the case then you should be able to see him. What does it look like?" Kazuo stood up straight and kept his arms to his sides, giving Hajita a clear view of his chakra. He imagined that it would look like a blue flame was flickering near his bellybutton but he wanted to know if there was anything more specific to it. --- OOC Okay, we'll switch over to unlocking the Sharingan. Keep in mind that you need to describe unlocking it in 500 words or more. You already have 83 words done thanks to your previous post. So we can describe what it is like for Hajita to use her sharingan for the first time. I'll keep track of your word count and I'll let you know when you hit it. So keep working with it until I tell you that you've reached it.
  7. Kazuo knew it was irrational. He knew that it wasn't deserved. But he really, really, really wanted to punch Chaohaun in square in the face. Seeing the way Tenri wrapped her arm around Chaohaun's stirred something up inside Kazuo. Normally he had pretty good control over his emotions, making sure they didn't rule his actions. That control might have been the only reason he hadn't hit Chaohaun yet, but he felt like he was dangerously close to losing it. He slowed down his breathing, as subtly as he could, trying to calm himself down. There was no good reason for him to feel this way. Chaohaun was a good person who never did any wrong by Kazuo. He just happened to be the one Tenri was flirting with. Kazuo had managed to calm himself down. He hadn't realized how much he had tensed up his shoulders just a moment ago. But just as he managed to regain his cool-head, Reimei punched Tenri in the chest. Actually, to be more specific, Reimei punched Tenri's breast. Kazuo pushed himself between the two, where he was facing Reimei and had his back towards Tenri. He held up his right hand, using the stop gesture. "I'm going to have to stop this now. Assaulting a Water Village shinobi is strictly forbidden. There are severe consequences to this." While Kazuo was lecturing, he was oblivious to whatever Tenri and Chaohaun were doing. He had assumed that they wouldn't do anything, meaning that he was not prepared if either of them did anything back to Reimei.
  8. Characters Involved | Kazuo Enomoto & Tenri @Tenri Link to the Missions | A Night to Remember - based on B-Rank Open Sesame Brief Overview | Kazuo and Tenri are at each other's throats when they should really be at the throats of the criminal ninjas they're hunting. But what starts off as awful first introductions soon turns into deep revelations as they find that they share the same pains.
  9. It was kind of creepy to see the scarecrow burning. Hajita's attack hit the scarecrow right down the middle. The half that was hit was engulfed in flames. That side of the body was charred, becoming completely blackened. Lumps of burning straw were breaking off and falling onto the frozen ground. But the other half was still there, for now. The flames were slowly trickling over it. And the smile on the scarecrow's face that once looked tacky and harmless now gave off a sinister vibe. With only one side of the face not charred, it now looked basked in the fire, welcoming it like a demon would. Maybe a scarecrow wasn't the best choice for target practice. Kazuo looked away from the scarecrow and looked at Hajita. He pushed it out of his mind and focus on the training. "The Phoenix Flower technique is a great jutsu, but it is trades power and accuracy for quantity. You're shooting out a bunch of small fireballs in random directions rather than focusing one big fireball at a target." Kazuo waved his hands, showcasing the fluttering flags scattered around. "Actually, these will be much better suited for that jutsu. So how about we try a Fireball jutsu on the rest of the scarecrow." "The seals are; boar, horse, and tiger." He brought his hands together, slowly making the handseals so that Hajita could see them clearly. He brought his right thumb and index finger together, making a circle out of them. He brought this up to his mouth and looked high up in the sky. He let out a sudden exhale and released a fireball. The fireball was huge, big enough where it could have engulfed Kazuo. It went straight up into the air, very similar to how a firework would. It kept going until it was a dozen feet high before the fireball immediately shrunk into nothingness. Kazuo nodded to Hajita, "Try it yourself." He pointed to the scarecrow, which was still standing. However, the flames were beginning to cover 3/4th of its body and most of the charred half had already fallen off. And, of course, it looked even creepier. The side of its neck must have weakened because the head had titled over, almost like it was looking at them in a teasing manner. A shiver ran down Kazuo's spine. Oh, how he was hoping Hajita would obliterate this thing with her next shot. --- OOC This is the Fireball jutsu. You've likely seen Sasuke and Itachi use this in the anime. Try it out. If you can describe learning and practicing this jutsu with 600 words throughout the thread then you get to have this jutsu for free, allowing you to use it outside of the training. To give you an idea how much that is, my post above is 405 words. You don't have to do it all in one post, so we can cover it over a couple of posts. Alternative, you can automatically learn it at the cost of 200 ryo. It is your choice. We will jump onto the Pheonix Flower jutsu as well. It is the same word count and cost as the fireball.
  10. Normally, Kazuo would be furious that someone would question the Water Village. The village provided them stability, security, and a chance for a life. However, what Tenri said almost pointed to the opposite. Truth be told, Kazuo regularly visited the slums. But they were all patrols, keeping an eye out on suspicious activity and asserting that there was shinobi presence there too. Kazuo did it out of a sense of moral obligation. Not many other shinobi did that. Many of them would even try to shirk out of their patrol duties. Some even skim over the slums, preferring to go where it was more peaceful. Tenri was actively helping the citizens who lived there. And by the sounds of it, it wasn't a mission or anything she was asked to do. It was an act that she did because she truly cared for the people, something Kazuo definitely didn't expect out of someone like her. It was almost laughable now how Kazuo didn't view Tenri as a worthy shinobi simply because of her flashy apparel. "Let's do something about that." Kazuo's voice was full of conviction as he unconsciously tightened his grip on Natsumi's ninja card. He looked Tenri straight in the eyes. "My loyalty is to the people of the village, not the Mizukage or anyone else in charge. If protecting the innocent comes with the cost of changing the whole Water Village then I'm prepared to do so. I'll train as hard as I need to, fight anyone I must, and do what I have to in order to ensure men like Taru don't hurt anymore people." Kazuo stepped forward towards Tenri, getting within arms length of her. "Tenri, I swear to you that I will not stop until the people are safe. We can stop those who prey on the innocent. We have the strength to do so. And even if we were the only two who could do that, I would stand against the whole world alongside you."
  11. Kazuo stood up, having pulled something out of Natsumi's back pocket. He turned toward Tenri and flipped open a ninja card, which had a picture of Natsumi as well as descriptions about her. "I'm grabbing any kind of identification I can find on their bodies. Fortunately, we can use this as proof that we eliminated everyone in this base." He has already grabbed everyone else's. Natsumi's was the last to get. Kazuo found it disgraceful how all of the criminal ninjas here were from the Water Village. Why would they throw away their honor and responsibilities to join up with a man like Taru? It made no sense to him. Being a shinobi of the Water Village was a privilege, a chance to make the world a better place. "Why would anyone do something like this?..." Kazuo whispered, looking down at Natsumi's photo. It was taken a couple of years ago, probably when she first became a shinobi. She looked so excited, beaming at the camera with the world at her feet. And now she laid, crumpled on the floor, oozing blood. Her face scrunched up in a horrified expression. Such a sad turnout for such a promising Water shinobi. "They all just betrayed our village. Why? What could they hope to accomplish without their village?" Kazuo looked up at Tenri, searching as if she had some kind of answer.
  12. Here are a bunch of updates. I try to save them up so it is less work for you. --- Update Type | Exp, Ryo, Abilities, Equipment Update Name | A Bunch of Updates Update Ryo | +3350 Update Links | Missions Remaining Vigilant, Series: +2750 ryo & +59 exp Doppel Dead: +1100 ryo & 24 exp Capture the Pet: +300 ryo & 7 exp Jutsu Genjutsu Release: -100 ryo Arm Binding Seal: -100 ryo Summoning Technique: -100 ryo Fire Style- Burning Barrier Ring: Trained at Letting Loose Fire Style- Flame Geyser: Trained at Letting Loose Equipment Shuriken: +6 sets of 5, - 300 ryo Kunai: +2 sets of 5, -100 ryo Windmill Shuriken: +1 set of 2, -100 ryo --- Thank you!
  13. Training with @Hajita Uchiha --- The tundra was a barren landscape. Land like this would be good for farming if it wasn't so cold. But despite the cold, Kazuo decided that it would be a good place to train alongside Hajita, who seemed eager to improve her skills, a willingness that Kazuo respected. Earlier that day Kazuo had collected a bunch of abandoned flags. They were all old, tattered and simply solid colors. He scattered them randomly across the plain they were in. They would be good for target practice. Kazuo even managed to nab a scarecrow, which stood right in the middle. Kazuo walked up to Hijita. "We're going to use the flags to work on our accuracy. The scarecrow..." Kazuo pointed over to the straw man, "Is for you. I want to see how powerful your fire jutsu is." He stood besides Hijita, crossing his arms over his chest, watching the scarecrow in anticipation. --- Out of Character: Okay, Hijita, this is both training for you and your character. For this first exercise, try to be as detailed as you can. Aim to make this your longest post yet. It will require you to spend a little more time writing it than usual. -Start off by describing how Hijita prepares for her jutsu. Describe what it is like to build up chakra and mold it into fire. Be creative. -Next, describe her performing the jutsu. What does she look like while she does it. Is she breathing it out of her mouth or does the fire come elsewhere? Does she have a narrow or wide stance? Add whatever you imagine she is doing. Pretend it is a scene from an anime. Put what you see in your head. -Now describe the jutsu heading towards the scarecrow. -And finally, tell me what happens to the scarecrow. Does it catch fire, is the impact so strong that the scarecrow explodes and sends flying bits of straw in every direction, or does something else happen? You have this! Just take your time and keep adding on. This is a story and the more details you add the more color and flavor you add to it.
  14. Characters Involved | Kazuo Enomoto & Hajita Uchiha Link to the Missions | Capture the Pet Brief Overview | It started off as a mission to find Zippers, a lost corgi. But after a failed trap and a search in an abandoned building they discover something a little more strange than what they had originally expected.
  15. I'm actually alright with bloodlines having a combat advantage. It makes for more challenging and interesting conflicts. I'm not role playing to have the strongest character, I'm role playing to have fun. It makes sense that bloodlines have strengths and advantages, they what they are for. True, it does discourage people from playing characters without bloodlines but that is the nature of the beast. I would like to see clans take on a more active role in villages and have their own responsibilities. So maybe that is what offsets it. Bloodlines have more responsibilities and requirements for active players.
