Naruto RP AU - The New Beasts
The world is as we all know it, with a number of villages and coutnries living in a fair balance of power and so called 'peace', there has been no vast conflict in ages and there were no 'tailed beasts', neither to reek havoc nor to have their power coveted by wicked organizations or power hungry warlords.
There are however, a number of things taking place that even the greatest leaders of the land haven't the slightest clue about, and the ultimate realization of these things existence will cast the land into war and chaos.
The First, Is a secret unknowingly existing in, and passed down through, certain family lines, though their back-grounds are varied, there is always one especially unique, powerful, or skilled ninja born in each generation in these family [or perhaps twins in a special case =P]. The unknown reason for this is the existence of certain Chakra Beasts dwelling within the bodies of the ninja, they transfer from one generation to the next, though they themselves are ageless, their hosts are not, but their existence imparts unique capabilities and advantages on their hosts.
The Second is a devious organization construction their plans through the inner working's of different villages, they are patient, their reach is vast, and their ruthlessness un-matched, yet worst of all, Nobody knows the name or who is a member of this secret group.
The Third Is the advent of a large group of Bandits, headed by rogue ninja and equipped with a number of unusual objects that seem to be imbued with unnatural powers.
Little of this is Immediately relevant however, as a number of task forces from the major Villages of the land are currently dealing with the threat of the bandits and looking into suspicious activities.
Most importantly 'now' is the creation of a unique Ninja Village, Known as the College of Nations, It is a revolutionary development in inter-national relations.
It resides on a large compound, as large as any of the Major Shinobi villages, serving all of the functions of a standard village, save for the fact that all residents are either visitors, Students, Teachers, or some other form of Staff.
It is the Largest Learning Center in the world, and boasts the Viable teaching of All Non-forbidden Shinobi Arts, from basic Taijutsu up to the most complicated unrestricted techniques available. They are staffed by members of ALL countries to ensure the accuracy of teachings formerly unique to one specific Land, and it is intended to be filled with students from all lands, both volunteers and invitees, and It's First year of service begins very soon.
The Greatest Feature of the school is that it caters to anyone who wishes to learn, whether it could be a normal person seeking to learn about Shinobi Arts without being able to perform it, or a ninja who wants to learn gardening. It supplies classes for many different professions, from samurai to Carpenter to Hunting and on, as well as having in house Training rooms for the College Guard that ensure the safety of the grounds.
The History timeline will be organized in relative time periods, rather than specific years, ya know, for now =P
500 Years Past: The final War took place, a Brutal Conflict between numerous Countries spanning the known world, resulting in the deaths of millions and a standoff between the numerous Armies about the land, whether ninja, soldier, militia, or skilled samurai. Details of it's content are long lost in the great length of history since, but the ultimate result of several countries realizing that there was no good outcome to the ceaseless fighitng other than either the crumbling or unification of the different nations, And ultimately they brought their armies together to enforce peace where they could while opening up peace talks with all other nations and eventually bringing about a quiet peace.
This Year range also held the 'birth' of the Chakra beasts that now reside in a number of family lines around the land, and the forging of a certain terribly organization operating behind the scenes.
300 Years Past: A series of devastating disasters took place in each of the major countries, leading to destabilization of relations between them, however due to extensive work prior to these events by the leaders of these countries, they had reason enough to trust eachother to avoid full on war. This was the first open act of a still nameless organization, though a number of members were executed for carrying out the origin of these Disasters, though many were never discovered and the only thing known about the organization is that they wish to bring the world back into war. For the same reason the Future Leaders of these countries were expected to maintain proper trustworthy relations to minimize the risk of such a thing happening.
Later in this Period, The 'Summit of Nations', was created, and it was decided that every 10 years a new place would chosen through correspondence between the Leaders of all nations, whether a Kage, or a Normal man, or whatever they are. They would tell no-one but eachother, and a single most trusted Body-guard with this information, as well these trusted body-guards were to be the ones delivering the correspondance to the other leaders personally. It would likely take several years to settle upon a location and method of ensuring no chance of spies infiltrating the meeting, a meeting where the leaders would speak freely amongst eachother, with no threat from outside the national relations, and they would decide on how to proceed with the more important of actions for the next decade together, and go about improving relations with eachother to ensure against war breaking out.
During this period while the nations are still reeling from the disasters wrought against them, Several groups of bandits spring up, seeking to take advantage of the confusion, among other things, reeking havoc among the lands, though it is comparitively miniscule compared to the recent actions and considered a lesser threat at the time.
100 Years Past: The Final Repairs from the vast destruction caused 2 centuries prior have finally been finished, A Remembrance memorial is constructed in each location to further ensure against the objectives of the organization coming to light.
The 20th's Summit of Nations meets and Set up a specialized Task force to deal with the bandits, composed of members of every nation and lead by some of their greatest warriors.
An, as yet, unknown person and various close friends begin planning a new way of improving relations between many different nations, The College of nations, but during this time it only enters the planning phases, choosing locations, Layouts, that such, but ultimately too much time passed and With barely early construction starting the original proprietors die of old age, though the project is picked up by another interested party.
Present: The College of Nations has recently been completed and is finally being opened for public use, and begins recruiting of both present staff and the first collection of students.
The National Task Force, along with the assistance of 'missions' completed by various ninja groups, have managed to quell the functions of most of the Bandit groups except for the largest, that still seems to run unopposed outside of it's attacking of populated nations.
Some unknown event takes place, causing the sudden sped up growth rate of Chakra beasts everywhere, and though it has shown no noticeable changes yet, Soon a point will be reached that reveals their existence to teh world, and god knows what will take place after this.
Plot: To put it simply, starting out, the main theme will be the Chakra Beast Hosts, Students in the College of Nations, and It will be the morning of orientation day.
We will progress as a normal day for the most part, perhaps mix in some little time skips to keep progress moving at times, or just 'wing it' over time.
Something to be aware of, the Chakra Host Students will be 'drawn' to eachother, regardless of age or skill level, though that doesn't mean instant friends unless you try to go that way, this will likely lead to most of us knowing more of us before the first day is over, though we don't require all 10 filled already of course XD
We will likely start out with a few days of normal activity, training, learning, so on, Liekly mixing in a time skip or 2 after a sufficient collection of posting rounds, and letting this starting period be a way for the College to discern plans for assigning 'teams' to their students.
Being that the College of Nations is practically a town of it's own, just with people from all the nations, they'll have things such a mission center and of course the Head-master, [acting as role similar to a Kage were it to be a standard village of sorts.] and as with any standard village, missions are a great source of income, the different would be that this place would take missions from allover the world, as well as acquiring some from the Nations themselves. [Though expect the first ones to be ludicrously Simple xD]
[Though you potentially know them better as 'tailed beasts' that particular nomenclature does not apply to this case]
They are, to put it simply, Chakra in living form, Creatures living in the family lines of certain clans and giving their hosts unique capabilities.
The only hint of their existence comes to solely their hosts so far, In the form of a unique creature being encountered in a sort of 'mental world' when they are sleeping or unconcious, though some speak of these and have made records of 'visions', few are willing to do so for fear of seeming 'crazy'.
To be more specific, they are of a similar Nature to the Canon Tailed Beasts, minus their original origin and being 'sealed', they are infact un-restricted from doing as they please with their powers. However, They are still in a fledgling form, often slumbering when the host is concious, and their power is paltry compared to the Tailed beasts [who don't exist in this AU], They are never the less un-restricted.
This would seem unimportant to some, however something is going to cause a forcibly increased development rate, It will be painful for both the beasts and their hosts, It will be a long process, likely still years before they could be considered 'grown', but the pending chaos of their universal awakening will be none-theless Devastating.
The Only name given to the organization who attempted to instigate a war 300 years ago, usually just reffered to as 'The Organization' still.
Or in english, The Sky Splitting Bandits.
They are a group of bandits, comprised of many different types of members, ninja, Samurai, Archers, Inventors, and on and on.
Currently It's not known how but they seem to 'appear' from the sky, hence their name, and descend upon their target before going wild for a time, then vanishing back into the clouds as if they were never there. Needless to say they have caused 'normal people' to fear a sudden rain storm from worry that it may be the bandit clouds.
A Vast school, containing facilities for all manner of teachings, from those of basic melee techniques to the most advanced of non restricted Jutsu, and everything else, from gardening to carpentry.
The College Grounds are designed as though it were a village of it's own, containing all the necessary things to be self sufficient, farms, shops, 'facilities' and so on, as well as staff to run them.
More Information will be expanded upon for the OOC once the voting has come along a little more.
Rules: I'm generally very lenient ^.^ I require little more than the standard Casual RP level Rules, But among the few I will require here:
1. Be capable of Intelligent posting, I don't expect geniuses or anything, But A few lines is good, I don't mind if it's a small post even, as long as it has key detail in it, a post about something that has no effect on the RP or anyone in it won't be very useful will it? For the most part I don't expect trouble here, But if several Seriously sub-par Posts happen in a row I will have to bring it to light.
2. Custom Chakra Beasts, There will be up to 10 total, you can design them as you please, their specialty, bonuses they give their hosts both passively and when 'active', as well as trouble they cause by being forcibly awakened among other things. You can theme them as you wish, if you wanna simple 'remake' a tailed beast, give it a shot, though they probably shouldn't be a carbon copy, of course you could do as I'm going to do and make one from the ground up =3
I haven't seen it done in a Naruto RP before, So I certainly worry about this being abused, But, It is still a key part of this RP, And I expect you all to be mature and intelligent about doing so. I imagine everyone who knows much of naruto knows the level of power than a normal Grown Tailed beast has, So these would have something comparable maybe to 100th or less of their power, but will quickly grow in power over the course of the RP.
While I will be very lenient of customized Creatures, I will say this, Try not to just rip off or copy something someone else has already made, though if it happens' by accident' I may allow a middle ground rather than forcing someone to re-design. Also, Any capabilities that relate to 'forbidden powers' or any sort of potentially Rediculous or problem causing advantage, should Be PMed to me and discussed to make sure it won't be abused. This is less because I don't trust people, and more so that I can back it up should someone else complain about a power being abused.
3. Be Active, I don't mind slowness, I intend to give approximately 3 days 'maximum' before a scene will be progressed without someone who's going too slow. This doesn't mean everyone must cease activity, feel free to continue conversations, training, whatever you may be doing, feel free to keep posting as long as you can come up with a reason to, until the time comes to 'just move on'. I don't generally remove people from RPs, However, If this happens more than 2 or 3 times for one person, then We will stop waiting for you more than 1 day. I will not 'chalk up' times where a viable explanation is given of course, I understand that 'shit happens' and I may have long delays myself eventually, shit happens, but simply growing bored and wordlessly leaving won't be tolerated, If you lose interest and want to leave, TELL US, that way your slot can be cleared up.
4. Character Stuff, I am very open about this, I certainly don't 'require' that you make a Chakra Beast Host for your character, though only one per person until 10 are taken. That aside, you can set up characters as you like, a samurai, a normal ninja just hanging around, maybe a College guard, or a Teacher, or just a normal student, and so on and so forth.
Also Note, The customization per character level will be allowed pretty high here, despite which I will also allow you all to remake cannon character from original Naruto in this setting, though they likely will be different, for instance, Naruto not having to grow up with everyone around him knowing there's a beast within him that could kill them all, resulting in not living with constant hate and seclusion, Similar could be said for Gaara.
I know it looks quite large, but there is a fair bit that isn't 'required' to be filled out =3 and Chakra Beast section only applies to those obviously containing one XD hahah.
Age: [The range can vary as you like, the college student policy isn't restricted by age.]
Organization: [starting off, most of us will have this as the College of Nations.]
Appearance: You'll want to at least describe height and weight if you use a picture, those play a vital part afterall.
History: I don't require a whole lot here =P given that most of us won't know anything about eachother IC, describe whatever you feel like =3
Feel free to include more informatino that I labeled here.
Name: Yes they have them XD
Classification: [like how the other's were called tailed beasts, feel free to make up what you want for 'what they are', so to speak.]
Age: [This will varry between 1-500, and you can feel free to decide it as you pleace XD]
Personality: Of course they'll have one XD
Appearance: [Either a description or a picture. This section refers to their standard appearance, so a simple picture is acceptable, there are other seconds below though.]
Stage 1 Appearance: [Reffering to the changes that happen to your character when using Stage one of your Chakra Beast's power, Similar to how Naruto gains odd lines on his face, claws and fangs, and his eyes change, so they'll be fairly minor at this stage ^.^]
Released Appearance: [What's seen if they are 'released' from the Host's body and become a physical entity. Given the proportions of the 'young tailed beasts', they can be expected to be quite large, ranging between 10 and 20 feet would be a fair estimate. so things like height, more detailed physical description, weight, and that such should go here.]
Chakra Beast Level: this will range between 1 and 100 [roughly 60 would be considered the level of the original tailed beasts. the 'starting' number must be between 1 and 3, though 3-5 is viable for the older Chakra beasts.]
[Note: Chakra Beast Level is vastly higher than that of a human ninja, Even as infants one of them could demolish several city blocks in the midst of a tantrum if they had a reason to.]
Specialties: The unique superior power that they have special to themselves [like how Kurama [nine tailed] has insanely vast Chakra power, or how Shukaku allowed Gaara to control sand as if it was part of his body, as examples.]
Abilities: Inherent skills and abilities that the Chakra beast is capable of when release, for example, Kurama's [I'm guessing somewhat here XD] ability to use his Chakra as though it were extra physical limbs or to compact it and turn it into a vast beam of energy, Or Shukaku's Air blasts [as I remember them at least XD]. [Of course starting off so young you wouldn't have that level of destructive power in particular yet.]
Stage 1 Powers: The effects granted to the host when using Stage 1 power, don't worry about listing jutsu here, those will still be in the jutsu section.
Stages: There will be Stages 1-10 ultimately, We'll progress through them 'fairly' quickly, but not excessively so, there will likely be a couple of arcs before each big progression and the like, so these sections will come in slowly over time.
NOTE: There is possibility to start with stage 2, by having an older Chakra beast, the older ones will reach the 'next stage' faster, so there will kindof be a pattern to who reaches which stage and when. PM me and describe your Stage 2 information if you want to do that bad enough, but of course your C.B. must be old enough to start with first.
Developemental Appearances: The Chakra beasts are quite young still, but with the suddenly increased growth rate they will progress through to adult before the RP is over certainly. [Also, I know about the growth rate of the original 'tailed beasts', though they had a fairly unique origin that I thought might play a part in going faster than I have planned for these XD]
Infant Stage: The current Stage, don't worry about this one cause it will have been descriped under released Appearance. These are the smallest, generally 2-3 times the height of a human.
Youngling: Normally Would take nearly a millenia, instead this stage could be reached within mere weeks now. Though the actual growth difference isn't as much as could be expected, the increase in chakra power is Vast, Several times over at least.
Adolescent: Meant to take several times longer than reaching the stage of a youngling, will likely take a month or to instead. depending on the creature in question, this level may vary between 30 and 50 feet in height, and Again several times the level of Chakra of the Younglings.
Adult: It is likely to take several months even with the enhanced development rate of the Chakra beasts, but this level is truely vast in size and power, What the Infant stage is capable of, The adult level can likely do in a single swing.
Elder: Not especially important just yet XD it'll be a long time before it is relevant IC XD but expect a sizeable leap in power over Adults.
Ancient: Similar to above XD
Anything relevant as equipment, weapons, tools, armor, that such, describe it in here.
Various things involved with that description, Kekkei genkai, Enhanced natural chakra flow, Clan based capabilities, that such, would go here.
You can actually feel free to change up the section below however you need in order to describe your character's known Jutsu.
Starting off, Only C rank and below Jutsu should be available to young Students, Up to B for Adult students. Currently 'ONE' A or S Rank ability will be available to those with a Chakra Beast in them.
Name of Technique:
Type of Jutsu:
Name of Technique:
Type of Jutsu:
Age: (If applicable)
Size: (Small, medium, large, colossal. The size and strength dictate the chakra cost.)
Unique Traits: (Just like the one for you character. This can mean flight for birds, or swimming for fish.)
Chakra Beast Hosts:
There will be a Reservation Timer of 3 days to complete a CS for one of these slots, to be added soon ^.^
Note: I won't start counting down the Reservation Timer until I start work on the OC or we have all 10 slots filled =3 When it Expires I won't immediately kick your reservation, but it becomes low priority, Which means someone else who wants the slot, once We have all 10 that is, Will be able to take it over.
New Note: I'm going to allow 'more' people to make attempts at chakra beast hosts, since nearly every CS so far has been one, Partly because I have a couple of friends joining in that I'd like to leave the option open for XD, But also because the consistency of Chakra beast host CSes gave me another idea that would make things a bit more 'open' for the number that I can include in the RP. ^.^ Though I 'will' lock the slots once I make the group after the OOC.
