Welcome to Shinobi Reality

First of all, we'd like to thank you for registering on our site and joining us here at Shinobi Reality. Since you've joined us, we would like to say that we very much appreciate you doing so and we welcome you here to RP with us. This site is a Text-Based Role Playing Game, or better known as RPG. Unlike normal RPG's, this does not include cool graphics and your favorite Final Fantasy character, what you will find here is a elaborate and massive story. This story includes the life of the character you wish to create and the other characters in this RPG.

This RPG site is focused on the manga, Naruto, by Kishimoto Masashi. This is where we draw all the information from, which his how the moderators and administrators judge creation topics. We ask that you have already read the manga, or at least up to the start of the Time Skip, more commonly known as Naruto Shippuden. (If you're still lost, it's where Naruto's clothes change and he grows up some). If you haven't read the manga up to date, don't worry, if there are any questions or concerns you have about your character, do not hesitate to private message an admin or mod about your concerns.

For those that have read the manga fully, you know that things constantly change, new abilities come out and we understand that you might want those new abilities. The manga is constantly changing, so that means we do as well. We will try our best to approve all creations as long as they are within the rules.

Keep in mind that we are ahead of the Manga but the setting is still nearly the same, so plan your character accordingly

Basic Info Guide

Everyone must start with a genin off the bat. You are not allowed to create high ranking characters unless they are open; however, if you are creating your very first character, we must insist that you create a Genin even if higher ranks are open, that way we can be sure of your RPing capabilities.

If a village has an open spot for a high ranking character, you must first PM the Kage/Leader and ask for said spot. If they allow you to take the spot, then you create your character, different spots might be open depending on which village you choose. If a Kage doesn't answer, ask a moderator or admin. The Kage/Leader must post in your thread that he/she accepts you of said rank (Chuunin or Jounin) before or after approval of your character. Missing Nin need to be accepted by the Site Owner. Please note that all characters left unfinished for 1 week will be moved to the basket.

Site owner/Hokage: Kogata
Kazekage: Thalia
Mizukage: N/A
Raikage: N/A
Tsuchikage: N/A


Your character's name. Pretty Self explanatory, first name and last name, both preferably Japanese in origin. Your name can be very important to your character, the meaning may or may not give some underlying description of your character or it could be a random collaboration of words which sound good together.

A title given to your character by someone usually referencing a job, behavior, battle style or skill. For example, Naruto nicknamed Jiraiya the 'Pervy Sage' for his perverted behavior or Kakashi was nicknamed 'Kakashi of the Sharingan' and 'The Copy Ninja' because of his Sharingan and the ability to copy Jutsu which stems from it.

Once again self explanatory. Your character's age. On average your character's age should be in correlation with their rank, with special exceptions.

Another self explanatory one, male or female.

Which village was your character born?

Previous Residence:
Where did your character once live?

What clan is your character from (often last name) when creating your character unless you're just making up a random last name/non-existent clan you must first be accepted into the clan by the clan leader.

The Complete Clan List can be found here

Konohagakure no Sato; Literally meaning "Village Hidden Among Tree Leaves"; also known as "Village Hidden in the Leaves" or "Hidden Leaf Village", or Konoha for short, is one of the five great ninja villages. As such, it is one of five villages with a Kage as its leader, known as the Hokage. On a mountain overlooking the villages from the north exists the Hokage Monument. The village resides in the Land of Fire. Although Konoha, much like the country in which it resides, has been peaceful for the past sixteen years, and has grown accustomed to that peace, it remains one of the most powerful villages in existence, and has great military power and influence.

Kumogakure no Sato; Literally meaning "Village Hidden in the Clouds" (also known as The Cloud Village, The Hidden Cloud Village, The Hidden Cloud, or Kumo for short) is the Hidden Village of the Land of Lightning. As one of the five Great Ninja Villages, Kumogakure has a Kage as its leader, known as the Raikage. The ninja from this village seem to specialize in Lightning Release techniques. A notable minority also seem to favor the use of Japanese-style swords (or katanas) as standard weapons, instead of the typical kunai that most shinobi wield; and, as a result, many Kumogakure ninjas seem to excel at swordsmanship. The village is located on a high mountain, and is literally hidden in the clouds. The Raikage lives in a large building built into the tallest mountain.

The ninja from this village seem to specialize in Earth Release techniques.Iwagakure is well-known for the rock-hard attitude of its shinobi. As soon as the Tsuchikage gives an order, the Iwa-nin do so without hesitating, even if it means death. The rocky mountain ranges that surround the village and country provide a natural stronghold. The village profits from this advantageous position and is proud of its strong defenses. The village sits among a mountain range consisting of small narrow waterfalls, with the buildings being composed of rock and stone; shaped from large, elevated formations of rock into tower-like structures. Many of its buildings sit on cliffs connected by a network of bridges.

Amegakure no Sato; Literally meaning "Village Hidden in Rain", also known as Hidden Rain Village, is a small yet highly industrialized hidden village and the alleged headquarters of Akatsuki located in an unnamed country. It seems to be a rather loosely knit village, befitting the destabilized country, as a fair number of its ninja seem to either be missing-nin or end up as missing-nin, as the infamous Akatsuki leader Nagato and his partner Konan originate from this village. Its symbol is composed of four parallel vertical lines, resembling rain.

Sound ninja use a diverse amount of jutsu, which are mostly centered around modifications and mutations Orochimaru gave them.

"The Village Hidden in the Grass" is located in a thus far unnamed country.Nothing is known about Kusagakure's general fighting style, or even if they have one.

It also seems to have many rivers and deep ravines.

The Elements

Everyone's chakra leans towards a natural element, decided by the heart. They can learn to access the element through vigorous training in which they learn to mold their chakra into one of the five basic elements. Through a Kekkei Genkai these 5 basic elements can be combined into further elemental combination.

The Basic 5

Character Creation Guide, Template & other important info Fire
Fire: The fire element, also known as Katon. When the user is affiliated with Katon, the chakra takes the form of fire and flames for attacks. These can be fire balls or extended flame throwing. Fire is typically a specialized offensive element. Commonly affiliated with the Tiger hand seal, Fire based techniques are commonly mid-to-long-ranged that cause burning and explosive damage. Fire based Ninjutsu is common among Konohagakure ninja with the Uchiha Clan being once known to be especially proficient with its use.Fire is strong against wind; because wind naturally feeds fire but weak against water due to its ability to extinguish the flames.

Character Creation Guide, Template & other important info Water
Water: The water element, also known as Suton. When the user is affiliated with Suton, the chakra takes the form of water. The water can be used in the shape of walls, allow the user not only to manipulate but (in the case of a master) Possibly the most versatile of the five basic chakra natures, because Suton techniques can not only change shape but form as well. The affinity for Water Release is common to shinobi of Kirigakure. Water Release will naturally extinguish fire (though a sufficiently powerful technique can cause evaporation) but will naturally be overcome by earth.

Character Creation Guide, Template & other important info Wind
Wind: The wind element also known as Fuuton. Although a commonly found element in Sunagakure, wind nature is rare. Wind, like fire is generally an offensive element, it can be used to create huge gusts or small sharp blades of wind. Futon techniques are suited for short-to-mid-range combat, and combine brute force and precision to deal cutting and slashing damage. Users can even channel wind-natured chakra into blades to increase their range and cutting power.Wind is naturally strong against Lightning , and likewise naturally weak against Fire.

Character Creation Guide, Template & other important info Lightning
Lightning: The lightning element also known as Raiton. This affinity allows the user to generate lightning by increasing the high frequency vibrations of their chakra. Similar to wind chakra, lightning is commonly infused into bladed weapons through Chakra Flow for increased sharpness through vibrations, with the added effect of inducing numbness. Lightning is good for middle to long-range attacks.Katon techniques are generally fast-moving and cause not only electrical but piercing damage as well. Common to the ninja of Kumogakure, a Lightning Release jutsu is naturally strong against an Earth jutsu, and weak against Wind.

Character Creation Guide, Template & other important info Earth
Earth: The earth element also known as Doton. When affiliated with Doton, the user can mold their chakra to create or manipulate earth and mud. This element will allow the user to create walls made from earth or mud, as well as allow the ninja to maneuver himself below ground to attack his opponent from below. Earth can also change the hardness composition of objects, making something hard as steel or soft as clay. Earth Release is naturally strong against water but likewise, Earth Release is also naturally weak against lightning.

Note: Keep in mind that these strengths and weaknesses are subject to variables, any jutsu can be beaten by a greater amount of chakra in a calculated defense, these affinities are usually only true when the jutsus are created in otherwise sterile conditions and when created by shinobi of equal or relatively equal strengths.

Specialty and Jutsu Relation

In order to utilize Jutsu to the most effective level, you need the associated specialty. Plain and simple.

Genin can only learn jutsu of their specialties. Plan and simple. [Excluding D-rank Ninjutsu/Taijutsu and basic Academy Techniques.]
