Q: What is Ninja Academy?
A: Ninja Academy is a text-based asynchronous role playing game based on the series Naruto created and owned by Masashi Kishimoto. It is run by fans and made for all Naruto fans to come and play out their own ninja in the Naruto world. It takes place over 100 years after the end of the original series, meaning all characters from the story no longer exist, though their clans and legacies do.
Q: How many villages are there?
A: At the moment there are six, but there were previously seven. In game events led to the end of Kusagakure no Sato, which you can read more about if you click the link before. The current villages you can play in are...
- Iwagakure no Sato; The Village Hidden in Stone
- Kirigakure no Sato; The Village Hidden in Mist
- Konohagakure no Sato; The Village Hidden in Leaf
- Kumogakure no Sato; The Village Hidden in Cloud
Kusagakure no Sato; The Village Hidden in Grass[?]
- Otogakure no Sato; The Village Hidden in Sound
- Sunagakure no Sato; The Village Hidden in Sand
Q: Why can't I see the villages? Do I need to download something?
A: You cannot see the villages until your character is approved. Once your character is approved you will be able to read the entire world, but you will only be able to post in the country in which you start. To post in other countries you will need to travel to them.
Q: I have a question about a specific mechanic/something on the main site. Who do I ask?
A: You have three options! You can either ask in the Question and Answer thread on the forum, ask in #beginnerchat in our Discord channel, or send a private message to a staff member! For the fastest answers we suggest using the Discord channel!
Q: What rank do we start at?
A: Everyone starts at Gennin level. Unfortunately, it doesn't matter how much you beg or if you were at a higher level on a different site, everyone starts at Gennin here. Sorry!
Q: Can I have an Uchiha or a ninja in a clan from the show in another village?
A: Not without consequences. The only way to do that is if your ninja was a missing-nin, which may result in them being hunted and killed early depending on how events play out. It is not a suggested route for a new player.
Q: Can my character start off as a missing-nin?
A: Yes, but again a Gennin missing-nin would likely have a very hard time playing. We do not suggest this route for brand new players.
Q: Can I be someone from the Naruto anime/manga?
A: No. This RPG is set at over 100 years after the end of the series. In addition, we want all characters to be unique and creative. So no clones of characters from the manga either.
Q: Can I be a mod or admin?
A: Possibly. Anyone that we see as a good candidate for being a moderator, we will notify them. We look for active people on forums, helpful people and people that have a good grasp of the rules, role play, and responsibility.
Q: Can I make my own clan and bloodline?
A: Yes, you can create nearly anything you want to. Just keep up with the rules and make it realistic.
Q: Can I have multiple characters?
A: Yes, read the rules under the RPG Rules page to learn more!
Q: Can I have students?
A: Yes, once your character reaches Chuunin/Jounin, you may have students of your own!
Q: Can I write for the Shinobi Times?
A: Yes you may, contact a staff member if you are interested!
