Welcome to NRPG, if you're looking through this thread, chances are you're trying to create a new character, your very first character here even? Not to worry, this quick and efficient guide will help you get started.
The first thing you must do when creating a character is to read through our site timeline
to ensure nothing in your personal history clashes with the already established canon. We do not limit your imagination or creativity in any way but we do request that you respect the plot and narrative we've already set in place.
Creating Your First Character
Your first character is also referred to as your "Main" character, or sometimes as just your "Main". To create your Main, please use the template provided below. Once you've filled the template, post it in the Character Creation forum
as a new topic where a member of staff will presently review it. Heed their feedback and edit accordingly until your character is approved.
If you decide to start in a Ninja Village, you have the option of starting as either an Academy Student or a Genin. Starting as a student means you begin with 30 stat points total. Genin however start with 60.
Please note that if this is your very first character on NRPG, you are required to start as an Academy Student. The AS rank also applies should you roll for a bijuu or opt for a limited clan.
If you choose to start as a Missing Ninja, you may start as an E rank or a D rank Missing Ninja. The stats for E rank are 30 while the stats for D rank are 60. In order to start as a Missing Nin, you must have commited or been framed for a crime. The nature of the incident must be detailed in your history
E rank is equivalent to the AS rank, and comes with the same stipulations.
If you would like to have your character be in a clan, please first check the availability of said clan. Uchiha for example is almost always full and has its own additional clan specifications attached as joining requirements. Other clans may also have further joining requirements such as OOC permission of the creator.
If you would like to forgo clans and roll for a Bijuu, please look towards our Bijuu Rules
for more details.
Along with being clanless, you will be granted buffs to your character. You can read more about those advantages here
The role play sample you provide for your application should be at least 500 words and should include one of the scenarios listed below. If you choose to create a Village Ninja, you're role playing as the defender, if you want to create a Missing Nin, you would role play as the antagonist.
-A group of civilian children have been kidnapped. Either role play rescuing them and taking care of the abductor or abducting said children and holding them for ransom.
-A guarded caravan is forced to stop due to a broken wheel in a territory famous for rogue ninja activity. Role play either guarding the contents of the caravan against bandits or role play the bandit leading the attack on the caravan.
-Sometimes ninja defect a village. Role play either defecting a village to embark on the path of a Missing Ninja or role play the loyal village ninja that stops him/her.
Do not use actual village names in your sample as this might interfere with already existing site canon.
Be sure to use proper grammar, spelling and punctuation to the best of your ability when filling out your application. We don't require you to have a degree in English but we do expect readable, coherent text.
Creating Your Next Character
Your second (or third or fourth) character is referred to as your "Alternate Character" or sometimes just your "Alt".
On NRPG, in addition to your Main, you are allowed 3 Alts. So at any given time you may not have more than four characters. Trust us, if you play them right, even four will be extremely hard to maintain.
You may create your first Alt when your Main has reached Chunin rank or C rank Missing Nin. You are allowed your second Alt when your first has reached the same and your third Alt when your second has reached Chunin/C rank as well.
If your Main dies, you have the option of replacing it with one of your Alts (of your choosing). You must then recalculate where you stand on making a second or third Alt.
Your Main and Alts may interact with each other but for purely social and story reasons. Alts may not benefit from training discounts, bloodline transfers, monetary gains or other in game increments.
Alt interactions will be monitored strictly by staff in case of abuse.
Alts can be made as either Genin or Academy Students.
Alt character applications do not require a role play sample.
It happens, whether by choice or as a result of the chaotic RP world we live in. Should you lose your character unintentionally, read up about replacing it with an Alt.
However, if you have lost all muse for a character and would like to get rid of it, we have two options for you. You can choose to either have your character killed to advance someone else's plot or you can opt to have them turn into an NPC to be used by your village. These options are only available to village shinobi of course as Missing Ninja rank up by killing and prearranged rank up scenarios are strictly prohibited.
If a Missing Ninja dies, it is assumed he/she vanished. It's a tough life out there for them.
You do not get to decide who your death or NPC-fying will benefit. Once you give up your character, the decision of its fate rests solely with your Kage/Village Leader.
Once you've decided to give up a character, please post here
to pick whether you'd like it to die or be turned into an NPC.
Banned characters are those belonging to banned members who have been removed from the site due to multiple offenses against the staff, the community or in role play.
When in a topic with a banned character, you are allowed to skip said character's posting turn if the ban is temporary. Should the ban be permanent, it is assumed that they simply walked/teleported/disappeared from the topic. These character's fates will be decided by their acting village heads.
You are not allowed to take advantage of a member's banning by claiming their body, money and/or items.
