7) Ranking Up

Post by NSRP » Mon Nov 02, 2015 1:16 am

Ranking Up It is always possible to move up in the ranks, so long as you can perform to the need of that rank. Each rank has different requirements for ranking up, based on the upcoming responsibilities, and the expectations for power and ability. Upon Ranking Up, a character is awarded 35 Points. Ranking up has 2 requirements, you must meet the stat total for the next rank, and you must show you can perform the next ranks responsibilities by completing a Plot Board of the appropriate level. The requirements and rewards for ranking up are listed below.
Current RankPlot Board RequirementsStat Point Requirement
Genin/D-rankC-rank Plot Board or Chuunin Fight (For Village Nin, See below)80

Special Jounin/B-rankCompletion of B-rank Plot Board200
Jounin/A-rankCompletion of A-rank Plot Board, Kage Exam (See Below) for Kage280
Chuunin Exams and Kage Exams
Chuunin Exams are based on the village the shinobi is in, and changes depending on the village's circumstance. The Kage Exam is treated similarly, as each village has different requirements for what they expect of their leader. Below is a spoiler containing the chuunin exam and kage exam for each village, and what is required to pass.
Sunagakure no SatoShow
Chuunin Exams in Sunagakure no Sato are one on one battles between two Genin. The purpose of this battle is to test each individual’s abilities and battle awareness skills. The Exam is held in an arena with only a panel of three judges present. These judges will decide together who, if either Genin, will be awarded the honor of ranking up.

Either or both Genin may pass based on the skills they show. Winning is not a condition of being granted Chuunin Rank. It should be noted that ending the life of the opponent is discouraged and would almost surely result in the denial of rank-up for that individual.
TBA
Konohagakure no SatoShow
Chuunin Exams in Konohagakure no Sato are made up of a two to three Genin team pitted against a single or occasional double Chuunin team. The purpose of this battle is to prove that while strong and capable alone, each Genin is capable of working as a team. The battle will take place at one of several small arenas throughout Konoha. Each arena has seating for family, friends, and the curious to watch. Though the battle is officially judged by a panel of three judges, these judges rely heavily on the input from the Chuunin.

Any number of the participants may passed based on their singular ability as well as their ability to work as a team. The strongest Genin would still fail the exam if he was unable to work with others and only as a single entity. It should be noted that death should never happen in Konoha’s exams. If a Genin were to take the life of either one of their teammates or the Chuunin he would not only be denied rank-up but also placed under heavy scrutiny.
Typically the Hokage is initially chosen from a pool of three candidates by the Village Council as a whole, each of the three marked from best to worst. The 'best' will be the first to go through what Konoha calls the Hokage Trials. These trials come in a trio, the Trial of Spirit, Trial of Heart, and the Trial of Mind, each trial testing a particular part of what the Council sees as the role of the Hokage.

In the Trial of Spirit the potential Hokage must demonstrate his/her ability to bring both hope and caring to the people of Konoha. While the simplest of the trials in physical demand, this should weigh heavily on the emotional mind of the candidate and show that they can care for even the 'most insignificant' member of the village as a part of their family.

There are many who stumble on the Trial of Heart, for in this trial the one being tested is expected to inspire others into action. While also not always physically demanding, this takes a toll on one's own drive. The candidate must inspire others into action for themselves and others, without taking action themselves. (Example: Getting a small community to stand up for itself against an enemy, without physical interference from the candidate.)

Much like the aspect of the Mind of the Will of Fire is not the least important, it is often the most difficult trial of all. This IS the most demanding of the trials, requiring the candidate to under interrogation by the Yamanaka. Every aspect of their mind will be put to the test as they are tested over and over again in both loyalty and durability.

More details may be found in the What Konoha is Like thread.
Kumogakure no SatoShow
Chuunin Exams in Kumogakure no Sato are solo events in which the Genin in question is sent on a C-Rank mission by the village. The purpose and idea behind this is to test the ability of the Genin to assure not only the individual but the village as well that the Genin has the skills of both mind and body to serve their country from the level of Chuunin.

In order to achieve their rank-up the Genin must be successful in all aspects of the mission handed out to them. The mission is not required to be combat oriented.
As Kumogakure is a democratic society, in order to become Raikage you must convince the members of the council to engage in a vote of no-confidence against the current Raikage. If the previous Raikage has perished, then you must instead convince them to elect you as Raikage. It is essentially a political challenge in which you must prove yourself worthy of the title of Raikage, whether that be through strength, intelligence or other more cunning manners.
Kirigakure no SatoShow
Chuunin Exams in Kirigakure no Sato are one on one battles between two Genin deemed battle ready. The purpose of this battle is to test the Genin’s battle readiness and how well they can compose themselves during the fight. Because of this, only the winner of the battle will be allowed to rank-up. Though in past times the taking of the opponent’s life was acceptable the rules have been changed and such an act would be severely frowned upon and the proctors will step in before hand if needed.

The Exam can be held in any number of arenas and can be done privately or publicly depending on what the Genin desire. Though winning is required to be allowed to pass, winning is not a guarantee of ranking up. The village officials will stand as judges and make the final decision on the rank up.
Kage Exams in Kirigakure no Sato are a rare sight. Most commonly, the kage is "elected" by the heads of the 5 families, though both the current Kage and the Daimyo retain the right to simply reject the elected individual. Most often, an election is not held unless the current Kage has passed. This, however, is only the technical answer. Historically, the title of Kage is seized through force. May it be through open challenge, or through assassination, conquering the current kage in battle via forfeiture or death would bestow the challenger with the title of Mizukage. Failing, however, often ends in death.
Iwagakure no SatoShow
Chuunin Exams in Iwagakure no Sato are multi-part. The first part is the combat stage where a small group of Genin, usually one or two, are pitted against a Chuunin. In the occasion a team of three desired to participate together a second adversary would likely be added to ensure the desired difficulty. The Genin are judged on their personal ability and how well they can work with a team. Any number of Genin competing can pass this first portion of the exam that is judged by a council of three. They do not have to win, they merely can’t die.

Regardless of how well one does in the physical portion of the exam, all applicants are required to be interviewed by the same panel of three village officials that judged the fight. The purpose of this is to test the mental capacity and readiness of the applicants and to decide if they are truly ready for the responsibilities that come along with Chuunin rank.
The tests for a budding Tsuchikage first tests his or her mettle as a denizen of the Rock country known for it's harsh climate and unforgiving terrain. Secondly it tests their ability as an Iwagakure shinobi in one on one combat with the victor leaving victorious and the loser left to lick their wounds if they are lucky enough to survive the ordeal. Lastly the candidate must prove themselves a leader worthy of commanding the respect of the hardened survivors of Iwagakure.

Test 1.
The first test is a test of survival, the candidate is left stranded in the harshest terrain and must not only survive but make it back to the village in one piece.

Test 2.
The second test is a test of combat against the current Tsuchikage, another candidate or a council elected opponent, while this test is not to the death it is not uncommon for competitors to lose their lives.

Test 3
The third test while the least grueling is likely the most difficult and requires a majority vote by the Iwagakure council.


Companion Rank Ups

Companions rank up in the same way as characters do, and are awarded points to spend on jutsu when they rank up. However, companions are notoriously difficult to master, as training them often takes away from the training of the owner. Essentially, when you have a companion, any stat points awarded to an owner, can instead be distributed to the companion. If a Plot Board award 10 stats, you could give 1 to a companion and 9 to the owner, split 5 and 5, or give them all to the companion, however you'd like. Below is a table describing the stat requirements for each rank, and the points for jutsu rewarded for the rank up.

7) Ranking Up

Post by NSRP » Mon May 08, 2017 5:18 pm


Prestige Slot

Introduction
In the world of Naruto Saigen, the objective of many players it build competitive characters with loads of stats and jutsu. Since this is the common measurement of strength, this causes many players to create characters at higher ranks in order to start with higher stats and jutsu. In the end, this unintentionally systematically discourages starting at lower ranks. In an effort to give players more of an incentive and reason to start at lower ranks besides story, we've designed a reward system that allows players to unlock non-combat advantages that allow for things like quality of life improvements, or special aesthetic effects. The advantages are known as perks and each one occupies 1 prestige slot- a new type of slot awarded via ranking up or completing end-game plot boards.
Unlocking a Prestige Slot All characters start with 0/0 prestige slots. The maximum possible slots are 5. As alluded to, certain in-character achievements allow a character to unlock a prestige point. The first and most common way of unlocking prestige slots is through ranking-up. 1 slot is rewarded for each of the following:
  • Ranking up to Chuunin
  • Ranking up to Special Jounin
  • Ranking up to Jounin
  • Ranking up to Bannin
  • Hitting Max Stats
However, due to balance players who started at higher ranks also have the opportunity to earn prestige slots. Unlike the first path however, these players cannot earn their remaining slots until after reaching end-game. Not only does this ensure no one has a direct advantage over the other, but this also allows end-game characters who traditionally have no benefit from doing plot boards to have more incentive to interact in the world and use their powerful characters to change things. However, those performing this path need to participate in high-level plotboards. This means at a minimum plotboards must be A-Rank or higher. Again, to enforce quality on this, the individual threads of the plotboard must have an average of at least 5 points.
Spending Prestige Slots Once you've gained a prestige slot, simply fill out a modification stating which perk you wish to unlock and it will be modded onto your application. As a reminder, each perk costs 1 slot. Note that some perks can be unlocked more than once. Prestige slots are not refundable. Once a slot is occupied, you are stuck with that perk.

There are three types of perks: Quality of Life Perks, Lump Perks, and Cosmetic Perks. Quality of Life Perks give permanent discounts. Lump Sum Perks allow you to get a one-time reward up front, and cosmetic perks merely allow flavour changes to powerful characters who want to differentiate themselves cosmetically from others.

Once unlocked, these are permanently unlocked.
