Orochimaru's Agenda: A New World Awaits!

Orochimaru's Agenda: A New World Awaits

Naruto RolePlay - Narutoverse Style

Since the formation of the first shinobi villages, wars have been fought and alliances made. Bijuu have been trapped in the bodies of humans called Jinchuuriki. Ninja clans hold dark secrets and alliances and betrayals formed in the dark. Some rise to rule in the light, and others slink into the depths of obscurity. This is the world of Naruto.

However, on the day the Jinchuuriki, Naruto, returns to the village something unexplainable happened. The very fabric of reality ripped and something ... or someone(s) have arrived. These otherworldly versions of people both known and not have arrived and changed the course of the world. Will they be the only ones? Or has this world been altered to make the barrier between this world and others permeable?

For now, there are new people in the world, some with very familiar faces. How will the world's inhabitants react? Only time will tell.

This world was innocent to the plans of another place's Orochimaru -- that does not mean it has not been and will not continue to be invariably altered by those experiments in jutsu better left to gods than mere sannin. The experiments another Orochimaru had violated the world with now affect this one. The acts of a man long vanished bring chaos, but that is the world in which we now live -- forever altered by Orochimaru's agenda.


We have created and modified rules over the course of the community's life to create guidelines on what has been liked and disliked by not only the Mods, but the players as well. While it may seem extensive at first glance, don't let it discourage you! The detail given exists to help answer questions a player might have about a covered topic and to offer clarification that is at one's disposal to view at any time. They are subject to change based on feedback from players and what the Mods see as working or not working for the current members of the community. Our intention is for them to be assistance to the players as a whole and to create an atmosphere that is enjoyable to everyone.

1. Godmoding and metagaming are uncool. Just don't do it.
*Godmoding - When a player takes control of another player's character or a character is somehow invincible.
*Metagaming - Using outside knowledge or rules knowledge to game advantage.

2. Journals must be updated at least once every two weeks. Being active keeps a comm alive! This will be enforced. If you have to leave for an extended amount of time, inform the mods and make an away post.

2a. Stating a character "wouldn't use a journal" has been decided as unacceptable by the mods. This is a LiveJOURNAL roleplay community and journals can even be private for the character. However, they allow the mods and the rest of the community to know what is happening with other characters.

3. Stay in-character for your character. There will be crack and it's likely you will have times that your character will be involved in it, but try to stay in character!

4. Please have AIM for this RP. We will be using AIM for some of our RPing and a majority of our contacting. If for some reason you can't have AIM, be super active in the journals and start action threads! We also now have the option of Google Documents for the purpose of logging.

5. Currently we only allow two characters per player. This is to allow other players to get involved with a character they like and not creating a "hogging" of often popular characters. Choose characters that won't interact much, unless you like RPing with yourself! (But that is not as much fun!)

5a. We require a two week waiting period between each character application from a player. The waiting period starts upon a character's approval and it exists to give each new character adequate time to get settled in and active.

5b. We will allow an extension up to four characters by mod discretion. In order to qualify for the additional characters, we must feel you are adequately keeping active with the characters you already have. That is rping, posting logs, and being active in journals.

5c. Original Characters (OC) can only be applied for by an existing player whom we have seen in play with an IC or AU character.
Requirements to qualify to app an OC: one month as an existing member, 2 journal entries, 2 posted logs, and journal comment activity on other journals.

5d. We require a minimum character age of 12, and do not accept Bijuu as characters. Both due to past playability issues.

6. This isn't TNT. We'd prefer to not "know drama" between muns. We all love to RP and we all love Naruto! Let's get along! If there is an issue between you and another player, try to be reasonable adults and work it out. Contact a mod if some mediation is needed, but this is not a nursery. Leave the drama to real life, and not where it affects the Community. Do not make us have to treat you like children or we may ask you to leave.

7. Yaoi, Yuri, Het, Nonsexual, it's all welcome with open arms. It's your character. Please be open minded to other player's choice of orientation. Say you dislike yuri, just politely don't participate. Everyone has the right to say no, and the Mods do not look kindly to a player being forced into something that is uncomfortable for them.

7a. This goes for posted logs as well. Warnings and summaries exist for a reason, and unless you are a Mod, you don't have a duty to read something that is not in your taste. Practice self-censorship. No one is intentionally trying to ruin your fun, so give that same respect in return. (And if there is intentional harassment, please inform the Mods! We do ask for evidence if possible to allow us to fairly assess the situation.)

7b. We do accept logs of an adult nature. We do ask per LiveJournal rules that any NC-17 material is friend's locked when posted. There's also the option of changing the 'adult content' filter, as seen at the bottom of the Post Entry page, varying from 'No adult content', ''Adult concepts' and 'Explicit content'.

8. Exceptionally serious character drama should be approved by the mods. This includes character pregnancy, deaths, serious diseases, rape/serious sexual abuse, obliteration of villages, wars, use of consistent NPCs brought into the world (Named entities, such as children), highly controversial subjects, etc. Or anything that could spill over into affecting more than two or three consenting played characters. This does not mean your idea will get rejected! In most cases we really just want to make sure everyone involved is on the same page and in consent.
*The approval post is here.

9. At this time we are allowing only two AU characters of each Naruto character. This may change if we decide on it or in special circumstances where we really like the idea and application of a character that already has two AU. If you have a really neat idea for a character that already has two AUs, feel free to app. We might love the idea too!

9a. To show that you read these rules, put the full name and whether your character is IC, AU, or OC in the subject of your application. Otherwise we may overlook it.

Writing Samples
Choose one of the following four prompts, or we'd love for you to come up with your own:
-Your character is challenged by a random shinobi. He looks strong, and more than a little psychotic. What does your character do?
-Your character wakes up in bed with Sasuke. How does your character handle the situation? What are their thoughts on how it happened and what happened?
-A high ranking person of another village or organization confronts you and attempts to persuade you to spy on your own village and give up information. The threat of not doing such is death. What does your character do? How do they handle the situation?
-You encounter Sakura drinking at the bar. She seems pretty wasted and is depressed about Sasuke's treatment of her and his attitude. She turns to you for comfort and affection. How do you handle it and what happens?

RP Example: Third person writing sample. Describe the situation in the prompt and how your character interacts in the situation. Please include your characters emotions and thoughts so we can get a better idea of how you would play the character in an RP setting.

Journal Post Example: First person writing sample. Write a journal entry that your character would write regarding the events from your chosen prompt in the RP Example. Remember this is a journal entry, not a roleplay scenerio. Please show your ability to stay in your character.
