~Newbies Guide To RPing~

For those of you that are new to roleplaying, I shall tell you what roleplaying is. Simply put, it is writing. You create a character in character registration forum, copying and pasting the character template and following the rules, then if a moderator/administrator finds your application swell, you will be approved, assigned to a group, and allowed to RP.

This is a Naruto roleplay. If you are reading this, you probably just finished reading/watching Naruto and thought it would be a cool game if there was one and did a quick search on the internet or was introduced to by a friend and etc. You write here what you say in third person perspective. You describe your surroundings, what you do, and what you look like.

Now, if you are RPing with someone else you cannot go:

NewGuy1 walks up to NewGuy2 and blows his brains out with a gun.

No, that is not allowed. In the first place, there are no guns on this site. Second of all, NewGuy2 has to have a chance to dodge. Not to mention a longer post would be more appreciated.

For example:

Newbie walked the dirt path through the forest. Birds chirping in the air, animals hiding in the shadows of the woods from the strange lurker. Of course they rarely traveled on this merchant path for fear of being food of the next wanderer that traveled through here. Newbie was planning on visiting his girlfriend in a small village, and her sister. Then he was planning on visiting his other girlfriend in the village next to it.

Not exactly the greatest post, but that's an example of how much we would like to see you post. 5 lines at least.

Now you know the basics of RPing.

Okay, since this is Naruto RP you think you can jump high and all that and be invincible. No. If you jump off a mountain that's 2,000 feet high and land head first into a pile of rocks, you still die. Unless you use a jutsu to avoid that.

I hope your stay may be enjoyable.



Things to NOT do. . .

God Mod-

"God Modding" is in essence when someone’s character has the ability to do practically anything without limits or boundaries. And example is when they simply cannot be harmed by any and all means other RP-ers try.

-It can be killing or injuring a character without the player's express permission.
-It can be when they simply can’t be hit and dodge all attacks or anything for this matter aimed at them.
-It can also be using other characters that other people RP with. In other words, if you do not RP as
Legolas, then you cannot have Legolas say anything, or do anything, without the player's express permission.

The absolute worst is when they make out another character to be what they’re not, just to make their own character seem superior. They make others seem weak, screaming for help, when they’ve made it quite clear about their advantages and strengths. This is called power-play. It’s a strain of God-Modding, but instead of just being irritating, it’s offensive to boot.
This is a prime example of God Modding:

Player A: Punches Player B
Player B: Dodges attack, grabs Player A and throws him. Player A flies at Player B, who warps behind him and slashes Player A in the back.

Bunnying 39 up, 7 down
A term used in roleplaying, bunnying is taking control of characters other than your own in order to make the storyline go the way you want it to. Closely related to god modding

Power Playing -
Power playing occurs in role playing, and it's when you control someone else's character, as well as your own, without the other person's permission
Say that I play Bob, and someone else is Susie.

Bob watched Susie as she started to walk away. he ran up to her, the girl of his dreams, and yelled, "SUSIE, DON"T LEAVE ME!" She turned around, and glared at him, with resentment in her eyes, before walking up to him, slapping him, and then walking away again

As you can see, if this were a post, I'd be typing Bob's actions, as well as Susie's. The fact that I'm typing Susie's actions is power playing

Trolling -
Trolling 1139 up, 105 down
Trolling is trying to get a rise out of someone. Forcing them to respond to you, either through wise-crackery, posting incorrect information, asking blatantly stupid questions, or other foolishness. However, trolling statements are never true or are ever meant to be construed as such. Nearly all trolled statements are meant to be funny to some people, so it does have some social/entertainment value.

"Trolling" isn't simply "harmful statements". Intentionally insulting/libelous statements are "flaming".

Just as bad as trolling is "Feeding the Trolls". This is when people say stuff that they know will prompt someone to respond with a trolled reply and/or replying to comments that are blatantly from a troll. This is especially true when a troll first makes his comment/reply, and (usually many) people respond, either trying to correct the troll, or express anger at the statement. At that point, the trolling was successful and has been fed. When encouraged by success and feeding, trolls often return.
In World of Warcraft, there are occasionally people that blurt out in world chat, "You get your mount at level 40 and costs 100 gold." then immediately signs off.

This information is outdated by over a year; but MANY people respond for at least 10-15 minutes afterwards with either corrections or calling that player a 'dummy', or something similar insulting their intelligence.

Trolling and subsequent feeding. Perfect example.

Flaming/Being a Flamer -
A person who, on a message forum of some type, attacks and flames other members of the forum for any of a number of reasons. A real Flamer usually attacks threads because he/she disagrees with the content of the thread or the lack thereof. The difference between a Flamer and somebody who merely disagrees is that a flamer is inappropriate in their responces.

They must not be confused with Trolls.

Trolls are people who flame the posters themselves, they flame because of rank, previous disagreements, sex, status, ect.
RandomNewbie: Lyke, Im all for aborshun an stuff, butt I dont like et wen da baybez dye.

Flamer: Pssh, that's stupid, you obviously know nothing of abortion, idiot.

Troll: OMG! Why don't you learn how to spell you stupid f***ing newbie!?!

Power Gaming -
Powergaming in roleplaying games can take several forms. One form is the deliberate creation of optimal player characters (PCs), with the aim of maximising the power the player wields in the game world by way of their avatar. This is known as min-maxing, due to the practice of balancing the PC's abilities through maximising desirable or "powerful" traits while minimising underpowered or unuseful traits. Such characters often draw criticism for not fitting the theme and tone of the game world or for being difficult to develop appropriate challenges for. Another form of power-gaming involves a focus on acquiring power during game progression, often by acquiring powerful equipment or unusual abilities. This lends itself to gameplay which is materialistic (and often, in the context of the game world, arguably amoral) and can frustrate other players who are looking to interact with the game world and the game story and not merely acquire loot.

Powergaming (or power gaming) is a style of interacting with games or game-like systems with the aim of maximising progress towards a specific goal, to the exclusion of other considerations such as (in videogames, boardgames, and roleplaying games) storytelling, atmosphere and camaraderie. Due to its focus on the letter of the rules over the spirit of the rules, it is often seen as unsporting, un-fun, or unsociable

Arguing with staff -
Calling abuse when a staff member has kicked you for doing something that is found disrespectful, they obviously kicked or banned you for a reason. This also goes for starting arguments or making statements to get things that you want particularly with staff members

Loopholing -

Loopholing is when you use your wit to try and outsmart the staff or get your way with what you want. We're implementing this to let you know that once a decision is made a decision is made. Don't argue, don't try to find a way through things, just accept the fact that it happened. Be happy that the staff took their time to review your issue and gave their honest opinion on what the outcome should be.


This could be very broad, however we are talking about annoying staff members. Even more specifically, asking them to look at your apps in a PM or the chatbox. Staff have lives too and they get to things the best they can. They don't need 80 people breathing down their necks asking them to approve things. Simply bump a topic ONCE ever 24 hours (When you bump a topic, you simple put "bump" in a new post). IF you fail to comply to this rule, your app will be sent to the bottom of the check list.

Flashback Topics

Ninja Legends, allows you to be in up to 3 topics at once. One topic is based in real life, and the other topic's are considered flashbacks. However in flashback topics you cannot kill or be killed. Obviously it's a flashback. If there are any problems then an RP moderator will address it.

Someone has 48 hours to respond in a topic before they may be skipped

To stop someone from leaving a topic you have 48 hours to do so

You can not revive topic's older than 5 days (meaning if I left Konoha 5 days ago, and you come in and say you blew konoha up in my topic cause its inactive thus people don't read or some other bs)

To enter a topic you have to put "Enter"

To exit a topic you have to put "Exit"

You cannot blow up a village in one super powerful attack. If the village is attacked, all village members MUST be alerted within a 48 hour period before any hit or attack is called final.


So it is obvious that there are going to be a lot of fights on this site (RP fights) which more than likely bring about a lot of arguments. On most sites, staff would get involve and it would be a large ordeal based off of what someone can and cannot do. But here at Ninja Legends, we will do things differently...

1.) If you are an argument you will need to post in the conflict resolution section. In the meantime, your topic will be locked. You each will get ONE post in this section to basically say why you are correct and the other is wrong.

2.) After this post, if an argreement is still not reached, you will simply roll a 6 sided dice. One of you pick odds and the other will pick evens (similar to heads or tails) whoever the dice lands on will be right

Reasons: well Naruto and any free ranged RPG is not reality. Nobody in real life can shoot fire from their mouth. Hold lightning. Make clones. Ect ect. So there is no clear reality and fiction. Staff themselves will even fight about what someone can and cannot do. Arguments get dragged on for weeks at time will people argue. This also prevents the chance of biased staff and it prevents the chance of rage quit because someone is unfair. You either solve the argument amongst yourselves in 2-4 post or the dice will chose. It's fair.

The only exception to this rule is if someone is being an obvious troll (People still do that) and are just defying rules because they can. Then an ADMIN can step in and say no. But DO NOT ask an Admin.
