Welcome to Naruto RPG, the place to live as a Shinobi in a full, thriving ninja world! To make your stay enjoyable, there are some rules that you must abide by to avoid potential conflicts which could otherwise arise. If you do not follow these rules, then penalties may be imposed. Keep in mind staff has every right to enforce the rules listed on this site. Should any abuse or loopholes try to be exploited, the staff has every right to take action deemed necessary for the offense.
Only one character per account, please. To create another character, make a new account.
All accounts must be named after their character, and this is to help keep track of characters. If your character dies, you can rename the account to that of the replacement character. (We will not accept usernames such as "ghfjksj123456")
Bumping threads is allowed, but you must wait for a minimum of 24-hours before doing so, and it must have a reason.
Penalty: Excessive/Illegal bumping may result in the thread being deleted.
Please post more than one line’s worth of roleplay to give the other posters something to reply to. 50+ words would be ideal.
Godmodding is not permitted. This is where you control another person’s character or even try to hit them through 'auto hitting. Not only is it rude, but it prevents the character’s original controller from acting out potential actions.
Penalty: Void where the god mod took place, if extreme/central may cause entire post void.
Don’t post adult content. This is against our host provider’s terms of service, is rude, and in some cases, illegal.
Penalty: Permanent ban
Your character must be approved before you can create a roleplay post with them. To create a character, look for the character creation area, read the rules and fill out the form shown.
Advertising is only permitted in the advertising forum. You are not permitted to advertise in your signature, discord, or posts elsewhere.
Penalty for mass-PM advertising: permanent
Penalty for normal PM advertising: 7 days
Penalty for post advertising: 1 day, post ad removed
Penalty for signature advertising: 1 day, signature ad removed
Please don’t misuse the mass PM feature by sending pointless messages, spam, and suchlike.
Penalty: 7-day ban
Be polite to those around you. Do not harass or degrade any other member.
Put out-of-character comments in brackets to distinguish between in-character actions in your post.
If you wish for your character to leave an area or village, they must leave all topics from their current location beforehand.
Penalty: New location post void
You can be in an unlimited amount of basic threads but may only be in one major thread at a time. Major threads include but are not limited to Village destructions, village exit gate topics, travels, and more. The rules for #14 must be followed to have this come into play.
Penalty: Potentially voided threads
Metagaming (using outside knowledge in the game world to gain an advantage) is not permitted.
Penalty: Post void; see roleplay rules for more on this.
Be realistic in your actions. Your character can’t dodge a 10-meter fireball by simply jumping over it, for instance.
Penalty: Post void
All actions your character performs must have a reason behind them. For instance, you can’t send your character to destroy a village just because ‘they felt like it.
Penalty: Post void
Everyone has the ability to app creations, be they canonical creations or custom ideas. However, you may only have up to 2 such creations posted on the site at a time. These may be either complete or WIP, but keep in mind that if a WIP app has not been completed within 2 weeks, it will be archived. This prevents the staff from being overloaded with requests and one person monopolizing the staff's time due to many applications. If multiple are posted, they will all be deleted and considered spam. An application needs to be either approved or denied by a full mod or completely scrapped by a player before moving on to another app. Trial approvals do not give one permission to start another application.
After 48 hours on a topic, if someone has not replied to the topic, you can skip the person and continue. In terms of fighting one on one, this means that you can claim a hit after 48 hours; If fighting with multiple people, the next person in line to post gets to post; In terms of Village Takeover, you automatically win if no one defends the village within 48 Hours. Upon request, a staff member can post on a topic if multiple players confirm that 48-hours have passed, forcing the next person to post. If you post an away message, you may be exempt from being 48-hours; in your away message, you must have a date of return; the 48-hour timer will begin on the date of return at 6 am. If you do not have a date of return, then you may still be skipped. All staff members will be allowed 72-hours before they can be skipped due to having to manage the forum while doing their threads.
You can have animals as summons, but you cannot create a character that is an animal.
You are not allowed to copy and paste any RP post from this site or another site. Example of breaking this rule, copying all your posts from another topic and then making another topic combining all those posts into one post and asking for rewards for both topics. Another Example, copying a post someone else has made and using it for yourself. There are tons of examples, but the main point is DO NOT copy and paste posts.
Penalty: Topic/Post Voided, also 1st Offense: Official Warning, 2nd Offense: Week Ban; 3rd Offense: Month Ban; 4th Offense: Perma Ban
Creations as a whole must first be approved before being used on the forum. Links to said creations must be listed on the stat page.
Penalty for using unapproved Creations: Void of the creation being used in the topic, if difficult to apply, may result in entire post void. Continuous offenses will result in the warning process before the inevitable permanent ban.
Flashback topics are allowed.
A flashback topic entails a previous event that took place, not in the current site timeline. It typically is meant to shed light on relationships or origin stories with a character in more detail, though it isn't limited to as such. Deceased characters can't be controlled or participate in flashbacks, nor godmodding a character. Additionally, major events can't be flash-backed, such as a previous village takeover or a player's killing. Characters can claim word count from these threads. However, they can't seek another character teaching them or giving away items.
These will be heavily monitored, and if the topic does not fit as a flashback, it may be voided, or the flashback tag will be removed.
This rule allows players to retain their creations' uniqueness, thus having jutsu and weapons unique to them, without the worry of another player making the same creation but with a different name. Should an app be reported as a rip-off, a link to your creation must be provided with the accusation. After reviewing both applications, if one is blatantly similar to the other, the staff will ask for the move to either be remade or deny it if there is no way to fix it. Make sure you search before you post to make sure you do not make something else already made.
Toxicity: If your behavior is found to be toxic to NRPG, you may suffer a ban based upon your behavior. Such behavior can include but is not limited to public shaming of members and staff and making the site a hostile environment for others. Bans can range from a day to Perma based upon the situation.
3 temporary bans result in an additional 7-day ban, and a further ban results in a permanent ban.Glossary:
Void: The post you make no longer counts in the topic it was made in
In-character: Communication between the characters
Out-of-character: Communication between the players
Metagaming: Using out-of-character knowledge that your character would not otherwise know in-character to gain an unfair advantage
Auto hit: Unfairly hitting the other player's character without giving them a chance to respond
Good: Controlling another person's character
Staff may select their own punishments based upon the severity of the situation, and the aforementioned are only basic punishments that may be enforced.
