    Welcome to the Naruto RPG!
    The words were floating in front of you in what could only be considered to be a complete void.

    “What?” At this point it was the only thing that you could manage to get past your lips in the shock of the situation you found myself in.

    You have been chosen out of all the souls that passed at the moment of your death to be reincarnated into a special world with special powers. Lucky You!

    That's when it figuratively hit you, you fucking DIED! “I fucking died,” you said vocally after several moments. “Goddammit.”

    You will be allowed to Select your starting location as well as a few ‘perks’ to give you a bit of an edge when starting out, you will start at the age of 6.

    You blink in response as you stared at the words floating in front of you in the void, moving to scratch your scalp only not to feel anything. Blinking you ‘looked’ down to ‘see’ nothing but more of the void. “Where is my body?” you voiced in baffled confusion, ‘blinking’ as you stared at the nothing where your body should be.

    You are currently dead, what use do you have for a body?

    You stared at the words before you, idly noting they were in a light blue box. “Mouthy little shit aren’t you?” You questioned with an eye twitch.

    You will be given a randomly generated body based upon your choices in the character selection screen, shall we begin? Or will you continue to bitch about every little thing?

    You frowned in response. “Fine,” you sighed as you ‘slumped’. Shortly after a larger blue box appeared before you me with a number of checkboxes and choices available.

    First up is where you will be born, each location has an advantage and disadvantage to them, as well as limiting what options you have for which clan you are born to.
    Ame no Kuni The country of Amegakure which is lead Hanzo the Salamander and Akatsuki, this country has been embroiled in a very long civil war.

    Poisonous One - You were an experiment by Hanzo to see if it was possible to replicate his success with transplanting a poison sack of one of his Salamanders into a human body, well, out of the thirty children operated on, you were the only one to survive, congratulations, you now have Hanzo’s full attention on you, for all the benefits and hindrances that brings to you.

Will roll for a random country that you will end up in.

    Taki no Kuni, the country of Takigakure, a minor forested mountainous region filled with flowing rivers and majestic waterfalls, shame the only thing that sticks out was that the Shodai Hokage pitied you enough to give Takigakure the Nanabi when he was handing out Bijuu.

    You couldn’t help but blink at the massive amount of choices before you, huh… this will be hard to choose… but in the end you probably should go for…




    So, I'm DragonKnightRyu, I decided to try making an RPG/CYOA on QQ based off of my Ninja Gamer fic, so yeah, make your votes for your starting village and Perk! I will be waiting about a week or so before closing the votes and tallying it up and posting the next section. Most of the encounters and events will happen by dice roll so beware, some choices may have undesired effects!

    on the one hand, i hate rehashing canon.
    on the other hand, any village/nation other than canon sucks hardcore. I mean, sure konoha has its share of shittiness and dark secrets. but despite the other places manage to be even worse...

    on top of that, konoha has the most powerful bloodlines too. (the hyuga, uchiha, and uzumaki are the 3 bloodlines who directly descend from the source of ki in the world)

    damn konoha is a real mary sue village isn't it?
    oh god! Hyuga voyeur! it makes so much sense

    Facepalm. I am so silly. I just remembered we are being explicitly offered an IC choice of which village to go to. This is not an OOC vote by the players, this completely and utterly changes things!

    Since this is an IC choice by the MC on his reincarnation option then I cannot vote for something dumb but amusing.

    Really, if given an IC choice then the obvious choice is obviously to go for the mary sue village and pick a totally OP bloodline, because MC is neither stupid nor insane.

    [x] Konohagakure
    -[x] Uzumaki Descendant

    As mary sue OP as byakugan and sharingan are. Fuuinjutsu is the key to TRUE POWER in the setting. Also, having the uzumaki massive penis chakra will let us cheat with more (or any) shadow clones which are the most cheat thing ever. Oh yea, shadow clones are also an exclusive art of Konoha so even more reason to go to konoha.

    I thought you did fine for what you had to work with. To make it clear I was not dissing your creativity when coming up with powers for the other villages. and a lot of those look real nice... Its just that konoha is absolutely bonkers in the setting as written by the author.

    They are the most powerful and biggest village. They are also the least militant at that. And they even officially on the surface cleave to a policy of "be nice to each other" (will of fire) even though there are failures like danzo (and the fact that they are taking it to stupid lengths, they should have conquered the world over)

    They have the 3 clans descendant from the sage of 6 paths. And those 3 clans are total bullshit. Their other clans are no slouches either.

    Their land is the most prolific because their first hokage did a ridiculous massive wood spell that terraformed a nation sized area into a lush forest.

    They have created the best researcher in the setting (orochimaru) even if he went traitor. They have the best jutsu. They have the best spymaster and best doctor as well. With said best spymaster being a freaking SAGE and able to channel the world's natural magic energies without turning to stone.

    During the last world war when their inferiors tried to rile shit up. their 3rd hokage single handedly and rapidly killed thousands of enemy combatants with his instant teleportation.

    They are even the source of the tailed beasts. having personally given out tailed beasts to other villages in a misguided failed attempt to create lasting peace (it didn't work, all said villages turned on konoha, and all the other villagers flaunt the demilitarization rules that require waiting until children are slightly less young to start training them).

    And again, shadow clones are literally the most broken spell ever invented in setting and they have a monopoly on it. (alongside the teleportation that their 3rd kage used)

    I actually do find other villages to be more interesting in some ways. I mean, you have a village of literal pirates with sharkmen! how cool is that?
    But it just doesn't compare to all the stacking multiple advantages that konoha has.

    Can't say that the other's aren't interesting, it's just that even though Konoha doesn't have the strongest military they compensate with the most numerous Hero Units.

    Kumo is pretty crazy OP. They were basically the winners of the third world ninja war, to the point of being able to pull shit with Konoha and then demand compensation for Konoha stopping them.

    Not completely sure how it works- do we pick location and perk at the same time? Is there a way to get more than ons perk ala Child Soldier?

    You got it right, and only some of the village's have an extra 'starting point' perk, there will be a couple more choices before 'creation' so just hang on

    No, they lost that war to konoha.

    And if you are referring to the hinata kidnapping attempt, then them pulling shit with konoha and then demanding compensation was because

    1. one of their dudes who died was a high ranked noble
    2. they were really really really super greedy for a chance to steal the byakugan
    3. konoha are a bunch of hippies who would actually go along with such nonsense
    4. konoha was actually tricking them in the process, "going along" with it in name but in fact ensuring they get nothing useful.
    5. konoha were too hippy to gut them after konoha decisively won the world war. And since the trump card konoha used to win (Minato Namikaze, 4th hokage, naruto's father, a person of mass destruction who single handedly won the world war) had since died to the tailed beasts, they felt a lot more courageous about things since leaf has lost its trump card while they still had theirs.

    Besides all that, while lightning manipulation is cool as hell. It just can't compare to shadow clones OR fuinjutsu OR uzumaki big fat chakra reserves. Whereas konoha uzumaki gives us all 3

    If this was an OOC vote? definitely tempted by the lightning release. As well as iron release, being a sharkman, and other votes people throw about. But the MC actually gets to IC decide what he gets so it would be silly to pass on that triple awesomeness combo, and that before even considering the quality of the village itself.

    While Fuinjutsu is a probably the best and easiest way to get power in setting the best way to survive is to stay under the radar of people who already have power's attention and nobody is gonna suspect a member of the Nara clan of actually doing something. The intelligence boost is a nice draw as well and I kinda want to see what can be done with shadows other then freezing and choking people.

    Uchia was the main story and i don't want to repeat it but starting with the hunted flaw isn't worth it for chakra reserves. anyone can learn sealing and I hate shadow clones. There only purpose is to give someone dozens of training actions a turn.

    Yes, that is indeed their only purpose. And yes, this makes them basically a cheat skill. so I can totally understanding having strong feelings about them.

    but let me ask you this, would your hate of them as "bad writing cheat skill" (presumably) actually make you pass on them if YOU were personally tossed into a deathworld and then given an IC choice to get them?

    Naruto IN SPAAAAAAACE!
    I'd abuse the shit out of every piece of tech and ninja magic in all the world, using even demons like the one from the priestess movie as a battery, if they are ready to fuck with the human race it is only fair we get to do the same :D

    If this was real, I wouldn't pass on learning them but you don't have to be a Uzumaki to learn shadow clone or fuinjutsu.

    Given that our main trait is being the gamer. I would rather not take a background that says people will be watching you as the flaw.

    In the story this was based on minito was able to notice we were reading things thAt weren't there and found out about being the gamer that wAy.
    Our family also noticed within like a month

    Wow, you actually read Ninja Gamer, wow, thanks for visiting here too! But I will be doing my best to change this around to be different from my Ninja Gamer fic, even if somehow votes pour in for Uchiha family

    1. It explicitly states that being uzumaki gives access to better fuinjutsu

    2. You need an extra large chakra pool to make shadow clones without dying. Most jounins can't even do it, while an uzumaki would be able to do so much sooner and thus massively increase their learning rate. Also, a bigger chakra pool means more clones means cheating

    3. I was arguing that shadow clones basically require you be from the leaf. Not that they require you to be an uzumaki. Uzumaki just makes them a little more efficient but is not strictly necessary. My argument was "we should be leaf for shadow clones... then from the leaf options, we should be uzumaki for the superior sealing"
    4. It didn't actually say we are actually getting Gamer powers... although QM didn't deny it either... so it makes this choice less important. That said, it also raises questions about the usefulness of uchihua ability to steal powers. If we are really going to be a Gamer then maybe hyuga is best choice. Also, would gamer's mind insulate us from the uchihua mental instability drawback?

    If we are going to be a gamer, then uzumaki + shadow clones is more of an op broken combo... on the other hand, we could also shine with any of the options. And as a gamer we actually stand a chance of eventually stealing shadow clones from the leaf if we start out as another village.

    5. It didn't say people will be actively spying on you, it says you have the attention of some less than stellar people. There is a distinct and important difference. It doesn't even specify if they are from the same village. For example, it could very well mean "orochimaru goons will try to kidnap you". Or it could be danzo reading up on your standard academy progress reports to see if you are worth press ganging. Or it could be spies from other villages wanting you dead (remember that they ganged up on the uzumaki village)

    6. You are voting for being an uchihua. Let me remind you of danzo. negative attention from bad people is a big deal for them too
    Can you link to it please? I have read several naruto gamer fics but I am not sure which is yours.

    I voted for the Hyuga clan, I didn't vote for the uchia clan because that was the character on the other story.

    I guess you were right about it not being specfically called out as the gamer power but it was called the Naruto rpg and the original was a gamer story so I just assumed that it was one to. If we don't have the gamer power I would consider changing my mind.

    There won't be any real overt Gamer powers like the fic, but you WILL have an effect on their growth and abilities

    My bad there, I apologize for misconstruing your argument. Yea, the hyuga should be the safest option.

    although there is still some unwanted kidnapping attempts from people outside the village... also, being in their compound with all the adults using their vision power means you are likely to be randomly seen doing whatever even without dedicated spies

    edit: reading the fic, I noticed you actually need the "too much chakra" perk to even have the possibility to learn shadow clones. (+300% chakra, can learn shadow clones. -50% control. -95% genjutsu)

    That is true, might've needed to clarify it a bit more as 'from the beginning' because it requires at least Jonin level reserves in order to learn, at least if I am remembering Canon correctly

    IIRC you are remembering correctly. although IIRC its average jonin reserves, some jonin have less, some have more, then you have jonin future rock lee and literally can't use ninjutsu. So its possible to be a jonin but still not be able to use it.
    And most ninja never make it to jonin (although we obviously will)
