[Mod Post] Character Application

All characters in the series (including ones presented after the RP splits from the manga) are Available unless they are listed on the Taken Characters list.
A list of characters requested by players can be found here.

FAQ: Is my character IC, AU, or OC?
We realize the categorization may be confusing for new players unfamiliar with the game and the mixing of various worlds. Hopefully this breakdown helps clarify it, and if you are still unsure, feel free to drop a line to the mods! ^^ We'd be happy to assist you!

  • A canon character that is native to the world in which the game is taking place.
  • Must be based on the canon character as they are at the point where the game world breaks off from the series (start of Shippuden).
    • Can be a character introduced further in the series, but note that the canon events for the world are only up to where the game breaks off.
  • Characters from the series with a twist or alteration.
  • Canon characters based on different points in the Naruto timeline than that of the "IC" game world.
  • Characters dead in the canon storyline up to where the game's "IC" world breaks off.
  • Completely original characters that do not exist in the series.

Read the rules of the community before applying!
Please read the rules regarding applications for Original Characters (OC) if you are planning to app an OC as opposed to an AU character.

Writing Samples
Choose one of the following four prompts, or we'd love for you to come up with your own:
-Your character is challenged by a random shinobi. He looks strong, and more than a little psychotic. What does your character do?
-Your character wakes up in bed with Sasuke. How does your character handle the situation? What are their thoughts on how it happened and what happened?
-A high ranking person of another village or organization confronts you and attempts to persuade you to spy on your own village and give up information. The threat of not doing such is death. What does your character do? How do they handle the situation?
-You encounter Sakura drinking at the bar. She seems pretty wasted and is depressed about Sasuke's treatment of her and his attitude. She turns to you for comfort and affection. How do you handle it and what happens?

RP Example: Third person writing sample. Describe the situation in the prompt and how your character interacts in the situation. Please include your characters emotions and thoughts so we can get a better idea of how you would play the character in an RP setting.

Journal Post Example: First person writing sample. Write a journal entry that your character would write regarding the events from your chosen prompt in the RP Example. Remember this is a journal entry, not a roleplay scenerio. Please show your ability to stay in your character.

Comments/Questions: Anything you wish to ask the Mods or any comments or information you wish us to know. Also a great place to mention where you heard about OA or whom you know that plays!
