Battle

Post by Admin on Wed Oct 11, 2017 7:52 pm


A battle is played out fairly simply. Someone posts what their character does, and then someone else posts what their character does. This goes back and forth until they come to some conclusion. The actual battles, in this reguard, are free-form. People who are used to free-form RPs should have no trouble here.

There are generally three ways you can "win" or at least stop a fight. The most obvious way is to reduce your opponent's HP to 0. There are many ways to accomplish that, from merely hitting your opponent to using jutsu to using natural hazards, the sheer number of ways is endless. Another way to end the battle is to somehow incompasitate your opponent. The final way is to simply reach a statis quo were you no longer have or want to fight. There may be ways to end a fight other then what's been detailed here, but these are the most common.

While fighting, there is some common curtosy you show your opponent. The first, and most important of these is that you don't God-Mod. God-Modding is detailed in the general rules thread.

Another curtosy is posting everything your character does. You can not have it "turn out" that the person your opponent has been fighting is a bunshin, for instance. This includes the plans and thoughts of your character. Having your character charge at someone, and then when they use a defensive move you'll "turn out" to be expecting it and acting perfectly is not allowed unless you say your expecting it in your post, even if only vaguely or briefly.

It is advised that in your first post, or at least somewere in the thread, you posts the stats of your character. This allows for easy refference, and generally makes things go smoother and quicker. Posting your stats once per page is optimal.

Under you post, you should include how much damage you intend to do, and from what sources. For instence, you could have something like this:





QUOTE

4 Kunai- 5 Damage (Each)
Punch- 3 Damage
Fire Element; Mythical Pheonix Fire Skill- 15


Doing this will put everything in perspective for you opponent, and will actually let him or her better micro-manage what is and is not dodged, so complete avoidences can be reduced.

At the very bottem of any post in which you use a jutsu, you should include a copy of that jutsu. This is simply for easy refference.

Finnally, try and stick to only one jutsu per post. This is more of a generalization, but really you can't perform too many actions without dictating how your opponent will act. Some obvious instences were this rule wouldn't apply is in jutsu that are obviously meant to be used together (such as the multi-size skill and the meat-bullet tank skill), or in instences were a post covers a drastically longer time span then usual. Another instence where its generally OK to use more then one jutsu per post is some taijutsu techniques, but even then you should stick to one or two per post.

Communicating with the Staff and other Members

First off at the end of every post that requires battle it is advised that you place your current Health and Chakra as well as the description of any jutsus you used during that battle.

If you feel that a member is abusing any rights given to him or her, or is God-Modding feel free to talk to the staff. We will review the thread and will give an unbiased opinion. If you feel a staff member is abusing his or her power, or that you or someone else has been incorrectly judged feel free to “appeal” the case to another staff member, preferably one of a higher rank. Feel free to PM every other staff member if you see fit, this will not be counted as spam or harassment unless you PM every staff member repeatedly.

Using Jutsu in Battle

The following is a short tutorial for using jutsu in battle. IT is not required reading, especially for those who are familier to naruto RPGs, but it may help newer members.

Using a jutsu in battle is just like performing any other action. You merely describe your character using the jutsu. However, there are several guidelines to using them. First, there is a one jutsu per post rule. Second, you should not copy and paste the description of the jutsu into your post and try to pawn it off as being your work. Finally, at the bottom of your post, in addition to posting your current HP and Chakra, you must post the jutsu as it is listed in your application. Note that the person(s) you are RPing with shouldn't have to look at that jutsu and should be able to get everything they need from your actual post. The only reason we force people to post the jutsu at the bottom of their post is so that the person you are RPing with can get details such as the amount of damage the jutsu inflicts.

Here are some ways not to use jutsu in battle:





QUOTE

Dan ducked under the kunai that was aimed for his head and knew that another one would follow. If he wanted any chance to win this battle he would have to seize control and go on the offensive. To accomplish that, he would need a distraction.

After some quick thinking he put his hands together and performed the seals to Bunshin no Jutsu, A basic technique which creates false clones of the user. The clones are used as a diversion while the user attacks. The clones are incapable of attacking and disappear if directly hit.

After having both himself and his newly created clone dodge the latest kunai attack by rolling in separate directions, Dan charged at Shiro from the right while his newly created clone charged from the left.

C. Dan ducked under the kunai that was aimed for his head and knew that another one would follow. If he wanted any chance to win this battle he would have to seize control and go on the offensive. To accomplish that, he would need a distraction.

After some quick thinking he decided that Bunshin no Jutsu would serve this purpose nicely. Dan quickly performed the technique and created three clones. Two of them dodged the second kunai by rolling to the left while Dan and another bunshin dodged by rolling to the right. All four Dans quickly fanned out and charged at Shiro, hoping that this distraction would give him the time he needed to bring this battle into close range.


Now, what was wrong with these posts? Well, Post A. simply Copied and Pasted the technique into the actual post. This not only added a needless amount of length to the post and generally looks sloppy, but makes the post hard to follow.

Post B suffered from a lack of detail. How many Bunshins did Dan create? Who attacked from where? What "directions" are the clones attacking from?

Post C is actually fairly decent, but it is missing one key thing, hand-seals. It is a fairly common mistake to forget them and merely say that you are performing the technique. It is generally best to at least make some reference to performing the hand-seals for Nin, Gen, and Medical Jutsu. You don't need to say what hand-seals you performed or how long it took, as that would be an unrealistic requirement.

Now, let us look at an acceptable post that centers on the use of a technique:

All four Dans quickly fanned out before charging at Shiro full force, hoping this would give him the time he needed to bring the battle into close range.


Note that that example post is just that, an example. There are many ways to RP and many people have their own style. We not only accept that but encourage people to be original.
