    Patch 34

    Ninja, I just wanted to take some time to write the Team's plans & thoughts about the next update on Shinobi Story. This will be our biggest update. As such, we require more time than usual to work on it and create new systems. For this coming update we are majorly focused on adding more content, adding more cosmetics (with a lot of F2P options as well as cool Shop Cosmetics), new systems such as Warmode & Jonin Rank-up, and creating the best new-player experience we are capable of. We ask that you bear with us while we work on this stuff, as it take a bit, but I would like to reach out to the community and get feedback directly! I would like you guys to please write ONE Positive thing about the game so far and ONE Negative thing! This will help use get more of a sense from the community point-of-view as to what players like and what players hate. That catch? You can't write the same thing someone else did!
  4. Join the conversation on Discord Don't miss the next livestream Ninja, The long-awaited Chuunin Exams was held today on Shinobi Story! This was a landmark event which saw our highest online player count that we're had to date! The first stage was more of an orientation which saw contestants pay their entry fee, and answer a moral question: "Would you kill 10 people to save the life of 1?". The players who answered in the affirmative were seated on one side of the room, while those who answered "no" had a seat on the other- effectively dividing the room in two. Once all of the players were seated, we informed them that the people they are sitting with based on their answer will be the teammate they will be entering the Forest of Death stage with! This was done to throw people off and scramble their plans, as now they had to enter the survival round with a total stranger! The Forest of Death Stage --- The second exam consisted of an ever-moving forest filled with huge snakes, swooping hawks, spiders, crocodiles, and monstrous cobras- amongst other scary things! The Giant Forest Snakes were constantly moving throughout, and if players stood around idle for too long, Giant Cobras would strike! The rules were: anything goes, and the players knew it! After letting the groups in one at a time, the stage begun! It was a 30 minute deathmatch Hunger games style! Out of the groups, only 7 people remained.. The Leaf Arena Stage --- All players who could make it gathered to spectate the final 1v1 Deathmatches! Contestants were paired with people similar to their level so they would be on a semi-even playing field & it showed! Most of the matches were great, with notable characters being: Tsukihime and Nari, who received special praise by the Hokage who was judging the battles for their notable skills and tactics in combat! At the end, the Chuunin Exams was attacked by Dagahara, the Demon of the Forest, who was summoned into the arena by an unlikely foe... If you wish to see the full event and the surprise at the end, you will need to watch our Twitch Vod, where we recorded the whole event -- WATCH THE FULL EVENT NOW! See ya in-game, Vlad

  7. Ninja, Shinobi Story will be hosting the first Chuunin Exams event which will take place on the 22nd of January at 12pm CST / 1pm EST / 6pm GMT / 7pm GMT+1 This is our first large-scale event which will act as a cheap/fun way for players to be promoted from Genin to Chuunin! The event will last for approximately 3 hours, will contain roleplay opportunities, we will have attendance giveaways on the livestream, and will be a fun way to spend some time on a saturday! The Hokage formally invites all Genin from any village to participate in the Chuunin Exams which will start at the Ninja Academy. Guards will be given the day-off so that all visitors may attend and spectate the exams. You must be at least level 15 and a Genin to enter the exams! It will contain 3 stages: 1) The initial stage will be held at the Ninja Academy where proctors will count attendants and take the Entry Fee of 5 RYO. No recommendations or dailies are required to participate in this exam. 2) After the orientation, participants will be escorted to the Forest of Death where they will be debriefed on the instructions for that stage of the event. The Forest of Death will be sealed off from the outside until the conclusion of the event. If there are more than 10 participants remaining after the Forest of Death, there will be an elimination round in the Forest of Death Arena. 3) The final round will be hosted in the Leaf Village Arena, inviting all spectators to cheer on your student(s) or friends! - For a guaranteed spot at the exams, please write your character's name below!

  12. So it is clear that the Land of Water & Hidden Mist is what players are looking for in the next playable village. I'd like to make this a megathread of ideas people would like to see in that village, some custom lore, some insights into the culture and architecture... Go! I really like the concept of basing the Mist around "The Empire" in SWTOR. They are not really "evil", but more akin to a large, hulking bureaucracy that values power moves. This is a good watch:
  13. This is actually the design philosophy I went with when creating Genjutsu. It can do really well, or really meh. It "lore" aspect of the mastery is determined on if you could successfully "trick" your opponent into thinking they got hurt. I'm going to tune some genjutsu abilities to make them a little more weighty, though.
  14. Ninja, I wanted to spend some time to touch base about our development cycle that just passed & the one coming up. The Team really stepped up & put in the work, and for that I am extremely proud to call them colleagues. I have watched certain developers join the team with zero experience on our engine, to me fully trusting them with content. They have truly blossomed & have worked hard to create (hopefully) enjoyable content. I can say with confidence that this is the first time that I feel Shinobi Story has enough content to truly be playable. This last development cycle does have some issue, though. The crashing bug is really putting a damper on things, but once we get that sorted it will be mostly bug free, besides minor things. Unfortunately I am on a trip for the rest of the week, but I am in constant contact with some third-party developers to help us understand and hopefully solve our crashes. I always want to be transparent with the community & give them a clear look at whats happening. At the moment we will be working on a hotfix to update some stuff, but after the hotfix the team will be on holiday for a bit of time to properly celebrate the holidays. I hope there is enough content to at least have an enjoyable time in the meantime! I just wanted to give a quick community update some some stuff. Till next time, Vlad & the SS Team
