HOW TO RP: BIOGRAPHIES (BIOS)

✖ INDEX

► What Are Biographies?

► Bio Types

► Basic Bio Rules

► Bio Template

► Bio Ability & Specialty Options

► Important & Useful Links


✖ WHAT ARE BIOGRAPHIES?

RP bios are, in short, character selections to be used by RPers. They are the chief means by which members are able to interact with our multi-facted roleplay system, in addition to one another. It follows then, that bios are the starting point for any prospective RPer and must be approved prior to partaking in the official RP. Naturally, the details of these bios (e.g., abilities, history, personality) can be fully customized and develop over time in a myriad of ways.


✖ BIO TYPES

► Canon Bios:

These are derived solely from the Naruto and Boruto series, across all media with details pulled from Narutopedia. Often times, canon bios have access to exclusive jutsu and traits that are inaccessible to custom bios; however, the tradeoff is that there is less room to customize them in terms of ability fields and specialties.

Examples: Naruto and Boruto Uzumaki, Sasuke and Madara Uchiha

► Bio Skins

These can be applied to any canon bio in order to make them partially custom. Everything, bar the bio's ability restrictions can be altered to suit one's own personal preferences.

Example: A bio skin for Tsunade Senju would include a custom name, looks, personality, and history. But it wouldn't include AN, modes, or canon contracts (other than slugs) since this particular canon bio does not ordinarily allow for such things. Still, it would retain all abilities intrinsic to the bio.

When using bio skins, which canon bio is serving as the basis must be clearly stated.

► Custom Bios:

These are all essentially derived from any source aside from the Naruto and Boruto series, oft instead being pulled from other series or media or other times, being made entirely from scratch. But no matter the source, the details of any custom bio must be tailored to fit the RP. While this type of bio may not be able to acquire specific things that some canon bios possess, custom bios instead confer RPers with a greater range of possibilities.
Examples: Ichigo Kurosaki (Bleach), Izuku Midoriya (My Hero Academia), Luffy D. Monkey (One Piece)

► Trial Bios:

These are just as the name implies, pre-approved canon bios to be used on a trial basis. This option enables RPers to temporarily explore a range of abilities and traits without having to make a formal commitment. At this time, RPers can select one trial bio at a time to use for a one-month period before having to wait one more month to rent again.
Examples: Minato Namikaze, Ōnoki, Tsunade Senju, Mei Terumī

► WSE Bios:

These can be either canon or custom bios, which will be designated for use in the Ninja World. But do note that each member can have only one of their bios active in the NW at a time. In addition, which bio is being used cannot change until an interlude between arcs. For ease of identification, please append [WSE] to the thread title.


✖ BASIC BIO RULES


► It is possible to have two (or three if Jōnin-rank) bios approved at any one time.

► Once a bio has been approved, it cannot be edited by the member.

► Once a bio has been approved, it cannot be dropped or switched for one month.

► Must follow the basic bio template.


✖ BIO ABILITY & SPECIALTY OPTIONS

► Bio Abilities:

In the RP, a wide variety of abilities can be paired together but there are limitations.


► Purchasing Abilities / Canon Characters:

While some options are just dependent upon one's rank, select abilities or characters require kumi be spent.


► Bio Specialties:

RPers can select from a list of specialties that will confer their bios with new or improved capabilities.



✖ BIO TEMPLATE

In order for a bio to be approved, it must include all the requisite sections as outlined in the bio template.

Bio Template (explained):

Basic Information

Name:

Here you state the name of your character.

Nickname:

Here you state the nickname(s) of your character; doesn't have to be canon, you can make them up.

Gender:

Here you state the gender of your character.

Age:

Here you state the age of your character. Be logical, no shinobi is 566 or 2 years old.

Clan:

Here you state the clan your character belongs to. A lot of canon characters don't belong to an official clan or their clan simply has never been stated. If this is the case or, when you make a custom character that doesn't belong to a clan, you don't need to write anything.

Looks:

Here you describe how your character looks like, what kind of cloths he wears and what kind of physical appearance he has. You can also just add a picture of your character here instead of describing him or refer to pictures that are posted elsewhere in your bio.

Personality:

Here you describe the personality of your character.

Village Info

Land of Birth:

Here you state the landmark your character was born in.

WSE Clan:

Here you state with your WSE clan you're a part of. To register a clan, apply in this either prior to the launch of the WSE or after putting your clan together IC ( in character ).

Rank//Chakra Info

Ninja Rank:

Here you state your rank, meaning the rank that you can see under your avatar, which is based on your post count. The rank your character has in the story if it's a canon bio doesn't matter. In the thread you can see which amount of battles and missions you need for which rank.

Specialty:

Here you state what you excel in, meaning the few things you are better in compared to all the other skills you know. Normally there shouldn't be anything mentioned here in your first bio and it's up to the mod who checks the bio to decide whether you deserve all the specialties you stated or not. Note that you can only have a select amount of specialties and these follow a set of rules, which can be found

Elements:

Here you state all the elements you learned. The elements your character knows in the story if it's a canon one are not relevant. In your first bio you can state the first element you want to learn and add that you still need training in it. In all your future bios however you only state the elements you actually had training in, nothing else and certainly do not start listing all the elements and just say you need training in them.

Your ninjutsu:

Here you list everything else you learned. You can also list your elemental ninjutsu here, though some people already list those under Elements. You are not obliged to post every single jutsu you know individually. Most people solve this by writing it like this:

Genjutsu - up to C-rank
Taijutsu - up to B-rank
Ninjutsu - up to B-rank
etc.

The jutsu listed below are the basic E-rank academy ninjutsu and are the only jutsu everyone gets by default and these have to be stated in your first bio.

(Bunshin No Jutsu) - Clone Technique

Background Info

History:

Here you state the history of your character. For canon characters you just follow their normal history, but if it's a canon character that has died, you only write history from before its death. Histories of custom characters have to fit the Narutoverse and thus can't have contradictions with it, even stuff that is in theory not impossible, but in reality is nonsense is not allowed. There is a small exception though, people that have been RPing for a long time can write histories in custom bios based on their own adventures, even if they contradict the Naruto plot. However in the latter case you can't combine the real Naruto plot with stuff from your own adventures that contradict the plot. It's one or the other, not both.

Other

Scientific Tools:

Here you list all the Scientific Tools you have on your bio, canon or Custom. Ninja can have up to 5 Tools in their bio while Cyborgs can have up to 10 on their body.

Artifacts:

Here you list all of your artifacts acquired through the WSE. You can list only their name or you can list the artifact in its entirety.

Picture:

Here you can add pictures of your character if you haven't done that yet somewhere else in the bio. It's not really that important and doesn't have to be filled in if you described your looks earlier.

Theme Song and Background Music:

Some music, not really important. Most people post YT vids, but other people just add the name of a song.

Battles

Won:

Here you state the amount of battles you officially won in our RP system, meaning that any made up fights in your history do not count and that in the case of a canon character, its battles in the Naruto plot do not count either. Thus logically in your first bio you have 0 wins.

Lost:

Same comment as above, only this time for the battles you lost. Some people count every battle they ever fought, while others only count the battles they fought with that specific bio, it doesn't really matter what you choose to do.
