  1. --- That is how Sorimachi Sarutobi intends to present himself to the denizens of the Land of Fire, be they natural to the green expanse or not. As a hunter and trader of game, offering choice fur, meat and trinkets taken from animals found around the land for coin or other goods. Word of mouth spreads of this man travelling from village to village, shrine to shrine, while offering his good and services, sometimes even some sage advice. Though he always appears to come to rest and end his daily journey by the gates of the ever growing Kisaragi Town, plying his trade and gazing longingly at the ships even as they are being built. Always from a safe and respectable distance, lest he incurs the wrath of Lord Fu and his attendants... Or at least that is what Sorimachi Sarutobi wants you to think. --- OOC: So here's the deal, I am sort-of-kinda submitting my Alpha character, Sorimachi, for random encounters to happen inside Shinobi Story, maybe you have bad luck with the Time Zone and never do come across anyone to roleplay with, or you are a bit like me, logging in only for short periods of time, seeing there really isn't a lot to do right now(As is natural with an Alpha build), so this is an attempt to "fix" that problem, both for you, reader, and for myself. Any advice/criticism as well as interest is welcomed, and you can contact me through the media that suits you best. That being the Shinobi Story forums, I can also be found under "Neves" in the Shinobi Story Discord(Yes, that does mean you can ping me to set an encounter up), or even by messaging me through my own Discord, "Neves#0893" if you feel more comfortable with that. Thanks.
  2. Alright, I'll bite the bullet and be the stupid one. Which one of the damn villages is "Yokohama"? Also, I would like to attend. Any date is fine, save unexpected developments.
  3. WEEK 1 --- To the attention of the Elders, Most esteemed and revered ones, this humble retainer writes with the intention of keeping you apprised of the happenings and landscape of the southern reaches. The communal shrine is the only true safe haven, with the monks and their attendants keeping the peace, even without any words being said, we all realize that that violence of any kind will not be tolerated within their sanctum. With the appropriate reasoning and right words, this provides for a goodly opportunity, consider this for some kind of initial foothold should events force us to beat a hasty march and in numbers. Though I advise that only our very best wordsmiths should be used to parley with the religious types, lest we inadvertently have them welcome the Senju with open arms instead, or, heavens forbid, the Uchiha. Having been able to explore some of the lands under the excuse of hunting for sustenance I can safely say that they hold promise, much of it being green and fertile, with plenty of bodies of water that could sustain our industrious intentions and deeps woods with enough materials for construction. Even without having much input from the locals, it is a sensible to assume that much of this land’s wealth is concentrated in one spot, as one of the main roads leads to it’s largest settlement, fiercely guarded, so much so that I have not yet dared to explore further in that direction. On on the other hand, the other settlements I have found are few and far between, having been received with open hostility in one of them, the village in question looks to make their Ryo with seafaring (I have spotted a few ships under construction nearby) and a deplorable “drinking hole” of sorts. These are the sorts of ruffians in dire need of the order and discipline only we can bring, and I would be honored beyond words should such task fall upon these shoulders. As for the other villages, they appear to survive on trading with travelers, farming, hunting or even providing adequate lodgings to the weary, with no concern for who they render services unto, as much to their benefit as to my chagrin, seeing it only makes it harder for me to find any like-minded kin or even covert opposition. Many of those that I come across carry themselves as Shinobi would, but other than a rare instance or two, I cannot ascertain their origins. Which leads me to believe that much like with the land, this is a place filled with human and potentially martial potential. A potential that we should capitalize on, if given the opportunity, by scooping up as many of the yet unaffiliated as we can, there being plenty of our Clan well within the age to be made use of in a potential beneficial marriage. Hoping that the words above put the hearts and minds back home at ease, I will now finish with a fond farewell and a wish that those very same words are in accordance with my task, being loathe to disappoint or fail. With nothing further to add, Sorimachi Sarutobi. --- (It would be quite alright if other Sarutobi posted their own reports on this thread, since that is what I will be doing. Thanks for reading.)
  4. Jutsu working on a Combo-like seal system sounds pretty cool, I ain't gonna lie. Probably a whole mess in the game, though.
  5. None. Though I am partial to the combination of Earth Release and Lightning Release, even if it should not be available to players. So those, in a sense I guess.
  6. Name: Sorimachi Sarutobi Age: Past his prime, getting on Affiliation: Sarutobi Clan Occupation: Shinobi Shinobi Disciplines: [???] [???] [???] Physically: Graying and of a slight build, Sorimachi's presence can hardly be described as striking or even imposing(As it is so often beneficial to any Shinobi worth his or her salt), even if there are certain disquietening traits to his person; - Eyes that are normally green and soft acquiring properties that some some would swear by feeling like having one’s very essence pierced by a furious hail of arrows within a literal “blink of an eye”. - A posture that borders on unnaturally straight and taut, so much so that the younger generations of Sarutobi have long joked about even Sorimachi’s measured breathing occurring only at his behest, no more and no less. - He dresses conservatively, for practicality and well within his means, with hair cut smartly(lest it is used against him in a foray or mission) and his only concession to “fashion” or even personal taste being a neatly trimmed moustache. Psyche: Even though deception is almost second nature to all Shinobi, Sorimachi has only cultivated it out of necessity and to better serve the interests of his Clan, being described as a straight-talker by most(if not all) accounts. He is not driven by deep desires and ambitions that would see him commit great acts of violence, in the same way, he is not given to grandiose displays of mercy and benevolence, instead measuring his conduct and actions in the way most Sarutobi have been taught to. “What would benefit the Clan the most?”
  7. I think, personally. That a mix of the third and fourth option would strike the best balance, at least at first while the community is still beggining to shape itself.
