Spring Ninja Festival - March 24, 2018 03/02/2018
The Community Manager and the two current Kage, @Deathmall Sasayaki and @TetsuHawk, invite you on March 24, 2018 to join us in celebrating the world of ninja in a full day of festivities and celebration. The ninja festival is a 24 hour event that will begin with the opening ceremony and end with an advanced placement-style PvP tournament.
Throughout the day, there will be GM hosted events that you may participate in, and the Kage will have 1,500 Tokens each to divide up as prizes and host their own village-specific events when there is no other events happening to keep the day flowing and active. They will be required to fairly host events to give out these tokens, if they do not use all the tokens, they will be requested to return the amount unused to the GMs (so encourage them to host plenty of events).
This festival, we'll be having a new exclusive item called the Dragon Festival Mask. This mask can be obtained for 1,000 Festival Tokens which are a token currency exclusive for the ninja festivals, and may be exchanged for event items at the "Festival Shop" in each village. The shop will be available at 12:00 A.M. EST and will be removed at 11:59 P.M. EST on March 24.
The festival token is engraved with a dragon's head, and can be used in any future festivals, so stock up - even after you purchase what you want.
To obtain these shiny little tokens, you must either participate in events or farm the following mobs: Wolves/Coyotes, Scorpions, Tunnelers, Scarabs (Big/Small), Tigers, White Tigers, Snakes (Bottom and Top), Bears, and Snow Wolves. The drop rate is similar to that of the primary item they drop. For example, a Festival Token will drop at the same rate as snake venom in Snakes, or fur in Tigers. There are plenty of options, so make sure you get to farming!
Dragon Festival Mask
The dragon mask comes in two colors: Red and Black. Each one is 1,000 Festival Tokens. There will be a present box in the square of your village to claim these masks and other items for tokens.
Throughout the day, we'll be having events for you to participate in. All events are 100% Mandatory Peaceful unless stated fighting can be done. Any attacks on the event are subject to jail time.
Opening Ceremony - 12:00 A.M. EST
We invite you to join us for the first hour to be apart of the opening ceremony that your Kage and I will be hosting to initiate the festival. This ceremony will happen at every festival and any roleplay announcements may be made here by your village officials. This is also a time for you to ask questions, learn more about the event, and roleplay with other ninja.
Early Morning Delivery - 3:00 A.M. EST to 5:00 A.M. EST
3:00-4:00 - Leaf Village Delivery
4:00-5:00 - Sand Village Delivery
In the next hour, your village will be instructed to deliver a message to the GM hosting the event. During this delivery mission, the defending village may prevent you from getting to the mission location (so long as they are not camping anywhere near the mission location). Anyone who gets to the GM within the hour will receive 100 Festival Tokens. The event will end at 3:59 and 4:59 respectively. (Mission explanation will take about 5 minutes, and you must deliver the correct message.)
Hide and Seek - 12:00 P.M. EST to 1:00 P.M. EST
For 1 hour, Game Masters will be rotating locations and giving out hints for Hide and Seek. Each ninja to find the location first and find the GM will receive 100 Festival Tokens (only once per person, if the same person keeps getting 1st, then the following ninja to find the GM will get the prize).
Ninja Dance Party - 6:00 P.M. EST to 7:00 P.M. EST
Every ninja may gather at Tanzaku Quareters (near the entrance of the castle by all the trees) and join us in a temporary Discord channel where music will be playing and you may dance around, socialize, etc. Random Festival Token prizes will be given out throughout the dance party, and we'll likely try to give it to the most lively dancers. If you need a guide on how to dance like a professional, some fellow ninja will help you learn da wae:
Ninja Festival Trials (Pre-Registration) - 7:00 P.M. EST to 7:30 P.M. EST
Begin gathering near the Tanzaku Quarters entrance to the Castle (same place we danced at) so that we can gather information. You should beforehand acknowledge that there is a small fee of 500 Ryo to enter the Ninja Festival Trials.
Ninja Festival Trials (Registration) - 7:30 P.M. EST to 8:00 P.M. EST
Game Masters will begin collecting your entry fee, and teleporting you into the waiting area.
Ninja Festival Trials (Fights) - 8:15 P.M. EST to N/A
The rest of the night, we will be sending you into bracket-made matches against other ninja to show off your skill.
To make things even more exciting, these placement matches will be within certain level ranges, and two prize pools are available for both brackets.
1st Bracket: 30-50
2nd Bracket: 10-29 (must be level 10 to enter)
Prizes (For Both Brackets)
1st Place - 1,000 Festival Tokens
2nd Place - 750 Festival Tokens
3rd Place - 500 Festival Tokens
All participants will receive a participation prize of 75 Festival Tokens. This prize will be given to you upon paying for your entry into the tournament.
Village Specific Events
Your Kage will be announcing their own events whenever they'd like beforehand on the forums/discord, so be watching out for those events!
Future Ninja Festivals
The Ninja Festivals mark the season changes: Spring, Summer, Autumn, and Winter. So four times a year, we'll have four different festivals with a new exclusive cosmetic which can be purchased with Festival Tokens. So if you have left over tokens, make sure to save them for future festivals!
Summer Festival - June 23, 2018
Autumn Festival - September 22, 2018

They will be hosted on Sundays every two weeks at 5 pm EST. The first event of every month will be a 1v1 tournament and the second one will be a team tournament (can be 2v2, 3v3, and even 4v4) and so it goes. I'll make posts annoucing the tournament a week in advance, telling what it is going to be.
You can also check the Community calendar to see the dates.
- Anyone can participate for free.
- In case of team tournament, players should form teams consisting of ninjas from the same village.
- It will be a Sudden Death tournament, the bracket spots will be randomly filled on a website. Everyone will be able to check the brackets at any time.
- How do you win? Beat everyone that get in your way
- Registration will happen via Discord and PM on forums. Just send me your nickname / your team nicknames and say that you want to participate.
What's the prize?
First place - $20 Ninja Credit
Second place - $10 Ninja Credit
Third place - $5 Ninja Credit
(In team tournaments, each member will receive the prize.)
So thats it. I hope I can count with everyone's presence. See you all at the next tournament.
Important Ranked Ninja Change 11/02/2017
This change has been a long time coming. All ranks (chunin, jonin, s-jonin) will soon be village exclusive. Resetting your character and choosing another village will not allow you to instantly become their Jonin superior for example.
IMPORTANT: All current ranks will be locked into Leaf unless you reply to this post that you want your rank to be for Sand. This is with the exception of those who earned their ranks from the Sand village Chunin Exams.
