Hey everyone,

I've decided to give some information on the system I have planned for things like the Chunin Exams.
This is not a entirely new concept as I've heard of things like this in other MMORPGs.

This system is called Roleplay Events (RPE)

The system can be compared to a game of Dungeons & Dragons, where players will play out their character through the actual game rules, while it is being watched over, moderated and led by a Game Master.

More information regarding RPE


The player must have a Ninja Biography on the forum to qualify for a RPE.
Examples of RPE are the Chunin Exams and Diplomacy by the Kage.
Permanent death takes place during RPE.


About Game Masters

There are 2 kinds of Game Masters, which are the Head GM and Village GM aka. Village Elders.

Head GM
In charge of events and decisions being made that affects the game on a global scale, such as wars & diplomacy. A head GM will only be necessary once we have released Suna.

Village GM
In charge of internal affairs (of one village) such as giving ranks. He/she is answerable to the Head GM.


About Kages

Kages are players who appointed by leaders by the other players through elections. They are in charge of making small and large village decisions.

Elections will be held once every 2 months or if a Kage has permadied. The players running for the election will need to be a player who is powerful and well respected by his fellow village ninjas. There will be some minimum requirements before a player can vote for a Kage, these are being registered atleast 2 weeks before the election date, and they have to be at least a level 10 Genin in-game.

Kages will have the ability to change their village member's ranks & organization, but he is still a normal player. He is a figurehead, it is a role which comes with plenty of respect but is riddled by risks of permadeath.

Kages which abuse power (their actions will be logged for Village GM to look through) will be removed, and banned. They may start a war with any village, but through the discretion of Village GM, who will stop any unreasonable decisions.


Permadeath & Permadying

Permadeath in Nin Online is not exactly the end for your character. Imagine it as a end for your indentity, but not your character. These permadeath cases will be rare, and only high ranking players will be at a very high risk for this. The system will effective kill your identity, your character will from then on be his own Kin, his son or daughter or a brother etc. as such name change will be required. His items will be passed down as well.

As the perma dead characters die, their Kin becomes more willful, and embodies his dreams. Though the characters which permadie will be reset to level 1, they with slightly higher starting stats than a normal character depending on how powerful he used to be, characters who have perma died multiple times will hence be slightly more powerful.

 

To make friendly diplomatic decisions such as forming alliances or settling/ending wars, player Kages must decide decide on a meeting place - preferably & traditionally within one of the villages as a symbol of trust. There, they will discuss and come to a decision which will be executed by the Head GM.

How to Start
Kages must request a meeting to the Head GM, and then choose a time & date agreeable by both parties and the Head GM.

Travelling
The travelling/escorting phase of this RPE goes like this..

    [*]As this is a dangerous journey to go alone, the Kage should preferably stay away from fighting for himself. He is to find escorts from his most powerful ninja to accompany him for this journey (maximum of 7) [*]Kages may go about this any way they like, without escorts, or even request assistance from other villages to escort them. [*]If players not involved from the village are being annoying, they may be kicked or banned by the GM. [*]If the travelling Kage is killed on the way to the diplomatic meeting, this will be witnessed by the GM who will then determine based on whether any foul play was involved. [*]If the death was fair and it was a planned ambush on the Kage, he will face permanent death. [*]Escorts will not be at risk of Permanent death, but they will be at risk of losing their rank if they fail to protect their Kage. [*]Other players may attempt to overthrow the Kage by force. Assassinations are bound to be attempted. [*]Attempting to kill the Kage so that wars will be prolonged is also an option. [*]The Kages may choose to keep the details of the meeting secret or low profile or change the date and time if they feel it is suddenly too risky.

    Meeting phase
    The location chosen as the meeting place can be private. Thus, mostly no external threats will happen from this point on, unless it is badly guarded or planned. Decisions for the diplomacy must take place within the game chat, and both villages should have somebody documented what is said during the meeting.
    Once the meeting is over, and the decisions are made, Village GM and Head GM will make the necessary changes to alliances, wars, diplomacy. Players should report or announce the news/decisions on the forum.
     
    Eventually, there may be individuals or groups of players who want to be "Reporters" and run their own news section. I am all for this! The Kage may allow or forbid reporters at the meeting, and they are not to speak or ask questions unless permission is granted.
     
    Ending
    After decisions have been made and meeting has been called to an end by both Kages. The RPE is over and the Kages are no longer at risk of permadeath.

    Chunin Exams is a very important and core RPE. It will have a lot of permadeath risks. But at the discretion of the Head GM, if the Chunin Exams has been held poorly, he may decide to call the whole event off.

    How often is there a Chunin Exam?
    The Chunin exam will be held once or twice a month by the Kage and Village GMs.

    How to participate in the Exam?
    First, you will need to form a team of 3.
    You must register for the Chunin Exam on the forum, and your account must have made a minimum of 10 posts.
    Your character must at least be a level 20 Genin to join the exam. You will need to have a supervising Jounin during the event, unless one of the team members is above level 50. If one member of this team is not present on the day of the exam, a replacement is allowed.

    Registration fee of 10,000 Ryo per ninja in the team is required.
    The fee should be sponsored by the Jounin supervisor, or can be paid by the Genins themselves.

    Registration for the Exams will take place 1 week before the actual exam, and the teams applying should work together and practice fighting as a team before taking place in the exam!

    The exams consist of...

    Written Test 10 Minutes
    Not much to explain for this.

    Forest of Death 20 Minutes (No Permadeath, but Eliminations)
    Each team will be given a Heaven Scroll or Earth Scroll item which will drop when the player faints.
    Before they die, they may choose to simply run or surrender the item to the other team.
    Players may go about this however they like.

    Teams which fail this round, will be eliminated, hence half of the players or more will not make it past this stage.

    Once you have both scrolls, you must proceed to the finish point.
    If a team loses both their scrolls, they may still attempt to ambush other teams to get back the scrolls they need.

    Medical Ninja will be very important in this round.

    Preliminaries - 20min - 1hr
    Finals - 10 - 30min

    Both the Preliminaries and Finals will be held in different arenas. However, they will happen very similarly.
    Two ninjas will be pit against each other, they must fight until one surrenders or faints.
    High level Medical ninja must heal the player if he has fainted.
    If the player is not healed, he will perma dead.
    Only the 2 ninjas and the medical ninja will be allowed into the arena.

    Many possibilities are are available.
    Obstructing the player who has fainted from being healed is allowed within RPE.
    However, the player would be subjected to being banished from his village and/or be killed himself during the event.

    How does the player become a Chunin after the exam?
    All players who make it to the finals may be promoted. However, the Kage must make the final decision. He may choose any player that he would like to promote, and may hold back any player as well.

Ok reasonable if you ask me, with this system you want a permadeath eventually. Thanks for elaborating

 

Edit: Although maybe we should refer to it as a passing on of will? Permadeath sounds way too negative, kind of why I didn't like the idea at first.

 

Edit 2: I can't help but feel a few Jounin would opt to make the Genin pay the fee, will there be anything making them think me paying is slightly better?

I kind of agree with this. But on the other hand, people may want to die like 10 times before really starting to build their character, i hope this will be supervised and banned.

 

Also, can there be a "permadeath" at a certain level? if you want to i mean... Say i'm a lvl85 Jounin, kinda bored (="old") and i want to start "as my kin" and play again from the beginning, will the GM take requests of "permadeath" then?

 

Another thing : Kakashi Hatake's post - i had the same question...

 

One last thing : awesome!! i'm really starting to twitch, i just gotta start playing this soon!!! waiting 2 more weeks will be pure torture (spank me :p )

 

Edit : You need minimum lvl10 genin to be hokage and minimum lvl20 genin to be chunin?  :wacko:

There should be an option to not be involved with system, some play only for the fun of pvp. Overall sounds really good. Things that I don't like are: 1. Kage deciding if someone will be promoted to chuunin ( It is okay if you don't have to join the exams all over 'gain and will get promoted later) 2.Who has died perma deaths from max level most times will gain huge advantage over players that dont have time to train character from 1 to 100 more than one time, there should be a max cap of stats that can be gained.

Thats the best name I can think of.

Death sounds too light. Also, the only incentive I can think is players generally having a good time, roleplaying as the "sensei" will be fun.

Those few Jounins are fine, but why would his team respect him then?

 

I want to ask a question . For entering the chuunin exam you need supervising Jounin but in the beggining everyone will be low level so who will be supervising the team ?

 

For the early Chunin Exams, I plan to make it free, and not require a supervising Jounin.

These exams will take place in the coming months.

 

I kind of agree with this. But on the other hand, people may want to die like 10 times before really starting to build their character, i hope this will be supervised and banned.

The stat boost will scale based on what level and stats the player had before he died.

Being able to die 10 times is already a great achievement, let alone being at max level to die multiple time.

You have to have a legit reason to die, but I'll consider this! Seems like a idea.

 

No, you need to be a level 10 Genin to vote for the Kage.

1. Kage deciding if someone will be promoted to chuunin ( It is okay if you don't have to join the exams all over 'gain and will get promoted later)

There is an option like that. It's called not participating in the events.

You can still play, but you'll be an eternal Genin.

 

1. I'll think about how I can make it more fair. But mostly everyone who gets into finals should get promoted.

2. Its supposed to feel more like a bad thing than a good one, because the stat boost is going to be very minor. It's just an incentive for people not to feel shitty when it happens. For people who don't have time to train their character, then it's only natural they are weaker.

"Other players may plan a Coup d'état as well, they may attempt to overthrow the Kage by force. Assassinations are bound to be attempted."

 

Kill the Kage ??wouldn't be a reason to turn the player on a Missing-nin? I don't quite understand that part, sorry.

Technically, only if you failed, people would know. Definitely, a failed attempt at that, and the Kage would have a reason to banish you for sure.

I would like for there to be a darker way to obtain the title. Like killing him and impersonating him :0

this will be interesting seeing how the Kage might become the enemies of some more "ambitious" clans within their own village

 

also if the assassination attempted/coup was detected im sure the kage would call for their heads and not banish but i guess thats up to the individual Kages

Did you imagine about people getting their rank / Levels and stop everything that involves perma deaths? Like you can probably little bit slow it only to have max of chuunin if u dont participate in anything, but max leveled chuunins running around killing jounins etc.. Meh kinda stupid.  That's what I would do which isnt "fair" thing to do, to pick the easy route. Once earn your rank / levels and stop getting involved into things that could make you lose your levels or rank=/

That's totally your choice! It's not unfair. Nobody is obliged to risk themselves to perma death. It's just not as fun as you don't. You can't hold high ranks or titles without risk - is my ideal system. But if you'd like to be a nobody, sure you can be a powerful nobody without risks like Master Chen. Naruto is a powerful Genin killing Kage level enemies on a daily basis. Rank will never determine your power level in Nin Online :)

To make friendly diplomatic decisions such as forming alliances or settling/ending wars, player Kages must decide decide on a meeting place - preferably & traditionally within one of the villages as a symbol of trust. There, they will discuss and come to a decision which will be executed by the Head GM.

How to Start
Kages must request a meeting to the Head GM, and then choose a time & date agreeable by both parties and the Head GM.

 

----------------

I don't really like how GMs are in control of allowing any orders when thats the kages position to do it anyway, maybe the kage wants to secretly ambush the other guy but is pretending to ally with them? It will be more village involved without the permissions of mods.

The GM is a overseer or somewhat a referee, the Kage can choose to ambush the other guy without permission. The GM is there to moderate foul play and/or declare permanent deaths in certain situations, the same way the striker doesn't ask the referee if he can fake the defender before he does it.

 

Place to keep track over everyone's bios pls :}

 

When the game is up, hopefully someone will make a topic for this, and keep it updated!

 

yeah i dont know about other people but when perma death is active/semi-active i tend to get more attached to my characters and tend to try and avoid death by becoming stronger and stronger.

 

so im 100% for this perma death system

 

That's what we hope to happen :) glad you are.
