Tired of the same old plotlines where the "Good guys win, bad guys lose, and then come back again" scenarios are just rehashed over and over again? Want to see something that hopes to be new and different? Annoyed with that one lazy guy who is a higher rank than you in the faction and does nothing? Can't stand biased or unfair staff? Members who are more concerned with their own characters' power levels then doing their job? Then we invite you to check out Naruto - Warring States.
The Warring States period is an era ripe with blood, and battle-lust has caused grief, vengeance, and sacrifice. Territorial expansion is the dominant mindset, as well as the accepted justification for countless slaughter. Men, women, and children are not immune. Conscripted into the war effort, young boys and girls are lucky if they see themselves reach adolescence. Where previously there had been an abundance of children reported internationally, these numbers are quickly dwindling. This Era of Conflict taints all whom are born into this time and it is unlikely to end in the near future. Six Countries - Six Demon Lords. Each Daimyo sees the other as a threat and thus do they employ Shinobi Clans of great power and nobility in the quest for expansion and power.
Oda, Nobunaga, Daimyo of the Land of Earth seeks to push south into the small countries nestled between him and Tokugawa, Ieyasu, Daimyo of the Land of Wind. This is a matter of blood, and the Lords of Earth and Wind call for the others head.
Date, Masamune, Daimyo of the Land of Fire grows restless. His reach has become great, his power nearly unrivaled. And who can stand in his way? Sanada, Masayuki, Daimyo of the Land of Forests. A great rivalry between the lords, as well as the Shinobi Clans they employ has always put the two at odds. Sanada will do his utmost to get to the aforementioned lands before Date, reaping what the Land of Fire deems its own.
Takeda, Shingen, Daimyo of the Land of Lightning, has finally amassed military power that matches or exceeds the likes of the other large countries. Thus, his expansion can begin as well. And it is crucial that this plan be underway sooner rather than later. The infrastructure of his country suffers and thus the economy is not what Takeda wishes it to be. Expansion into more fertile and fitting lands for a Noble Lord such as he is very critical to the survival of his people, as well as his claim.
Honda, Tadakatsu, Daimyo of the Land of Water has only recently secured his hold over several of the islands that make up his territory. Albeit smaller than the other five large nations, Honda does not have much to fear in the way of being attacked as of yet. All the better really, as his rule is still dealing with insurrection from other, unclaimed islands that surround him. Bringing them into the fold is crucial to the Land of Water's expansion. For only then will Honda be able to push in toward the main land and begin to seize territory from the larger nations.
Each Lord hopes to gain the advantage over the others, gaining power and recognition along the way. The Shinobi employed under each serve as the military powers in the lands and they do the bidding of their Lords. Each Clan and their respective Banner-Clans harbors grudges and rivalries of their own. Noble Shinobi Clans hope to prove their worth on the battle field and thus continue under the service of their Daimyo. The cost for such power and prominence is blood and there is sure to be much that is spilled.
This is the time of the Warring States! When the shinobi were at their peak, and the stroke of a sword or the point of a needle could decide the fate of an entire nation. Here you will find:
