Character Creation Guide
Please do not post incomplete/WIP apps in the registration section. Only post complete applications in registration.
Below is a guide to the character creation process. It's a rough guideline to the different sections on our basic application, with important information for different character types and ranks. Any additional information that is too large to be covered in the character creation guide will be linked to in relevant sections.
Please keep in mind that we enjoy to keep a certain uniformity to the applications on the forums, so if a mod is asking you to fix your app it’s up to their discretion.
'Redoing' Your Characters
Everyone makes mistakes. Therefore, every member has one token to completely redo one character. Once it is used, a member cannot redo anymore. A redo consists of taking a character as they are, and swapping around current stats, specializations, jutsu, or companions. This doesn't mean you're limited to just changing these things however, you may change anything of the character you'd like. However this character must pass through the registry once again with the title stating, "[REDO]" to notify mods that they are redoing a character. It must have a link to the old character app, and it must have a secondary post listing what changes they have made.
The character template can be found nocoded [Here]
The top section of your app, the link to your username must by codedwrote:Username: Include a link to your profile.
Prestige Perks: 0/0
Stat Trainings: (0/50)

tag as it will change when the app is reposted. Points will stay at 0/0 unless otherwise specified. The Prestige Perks will stay as 0/0 unless otherwise specified here. The stat trainings will stay as (0/50) unless specified here.
Code: Select all
Your characters name, formatted by the last name, then the first name. If your character belongs to any archived clans, houses or lineages, the last name should link to the application for that family.wrote:LAST NAME, FIRST NAME
Nicknames can be any name your character goes by, may it be what other people call them, or what they call themselves. A nickname is not required and if you opt out of it you may remove this field.
A nindo is a way of life, a catch phrase, or simply an ideology. Like the nickname, if you opt out of it you may simply remove this field.
Mostly self explanatory, age should match the minimum age requirements for ranks of the given villages, which can be found in the individual village profiles. Gender can be left blank should it not match the recognized gender of the character. Physical features can be formatted as the user sees fit, and does not need to match the format listed. However, it must include height and weight, and should include hair color and eye color. It should also include any notable tattoos, scars, distinguishing features, and so forth. If your physical features section is not thorough enough a mod may ask for further clarification. Also as a note, there cannot be any abnormal eye colors unless given through an ability.wrote:General InformationAge:
- Notable Features:
Clothing and accessories should include the location of any additional pouches or pockets that are used to hold weaponry. This section should include the typical outfit worn for missions, or for day to day activities, but does not need to be both.
The picture section is not required and can be removed if a picture is omitted.
Moderators reserve the right to deny the use of a picture if it too closely matches a character from a popular media.
Personality can be formatted as the user sees fit, but should include the above information. Should the moderator find the personality to be too shallow, they can request for more details to be included for clarification.wrote:Personality:
- Combat Mentality:------------
Village can be any of the grand 5 villages. If the character is not from one of the grand 5 then they may start as a 'minor country' person. However, by doing so, there are certain restrictions.wrote:Battle InformationVillage:
- First, you cannot have more than 1 in Ninjutsu, Genjutsu, or Control.
- Second, you cannot have any Ninjutsu or Genjutsu until you first train all of the Basic Jutsu. To train the basic jutsu you need to learn it from a PC who already knows them. This means it can be trained by a village missing-nin or a minor country who has learned it. You are allowed to use the jutsu word count deduction for these training.
- Third, you cannot start off with any chakra powered weapons as they do not know how to imbue their chakra yet. They cannot be hunted unless they learn Ninjutsu or Genjutsu which is seen as a crime of leaking state secrets and association with a dangerous criminal (Missing-Nin).
- Finally, Minor Country Samurai can only start at either D-Rank or C-Rank.
- Genin: 40 Stats
- Chuunin: 80 Stats
- Special Jounin: 160 Stats
- Jounin: 200 Stats
The equipment section should list all the equipment the character carries on their person. May it be offensive equipment, or simply utensils to eat food with. The equipment list should also list where the equipment is kept. Characters are given points to spend on equipment at start up. These points are not annotated on the character sheet, nor do they carry over if not spent. These points are simply to limit the power of weapons people start with. The amount of points per rank are as follows:wrote:Equipment:
- Genin: 20 Points
- Chuunin: 25 Points
- Special Jounin: 30 Points
- Jounin: 35 Points
The companions section should be left blank, if you gain any companions any in the future the moderator will add them to this section. Additionally, all characters are born with an innate Primary Affinity, though they cannot access it without a concentration. That Primary Affinity must be listed in this section as it gives the user a discount on their trainings for that affinity reducing the minimum word count to 300. All other affinities after that award nothing special and are for flavor.
This section should list any [Abilities or Concentrations] that the character has. The rules for abilities and concentrations are specified in the aforementioned link.wrote:Abilities and Concentrations
Abilities First Ability ---------- Second Ability --------- Third Ability -------------
Concentrations Ninjutsu [Place them here] Taijutsu [Place them here] Genjutsu [Place them here]
This is where the user should list all jutsu the character has. Jutsu can be organized however the user would like, but they should be organized in a manner that makes them easy to read and interpret by the mods. The number of jutsu you get at start up is based off the rank of your character. Each rank is given a number of points to spend on jutsu. These points are strictly for registration purposes and are not added to the point pool at the top of the app. Any points not used will not be able to be utilized in the future so you should make your best attempt to use them all. The cost of jutsu can be found [Here]
Below is the number of points received for each rank:
- Genin: 30
- Chuunin: 60
- Special Jounin: 90
- Jounin: 120
- Genin: B-rank
- Chuunin: A-rank
- Special Jounin & Above: S-rank
The history should include any pertinent details of the characters past and upbringing. At a minimum the history should include the characters life before the academy, when they graduate the academy, and each time they ranked up. Some moderators may ask you to expand on the history if they do not think its detailed enough. Additionally, histories must be approved by the Village Leader.wrote:
- [+] Historical Accounts
- Place history in here
And that is the character creation process!
