Four stories of academic splendor to everyone except the students who walk these halls. The Academy is the start of a shinobi's career, the teaching are frank and the training are cruel but these methods are necessary for a shinobi to reach their full potential. For the most part the academy looks like any other academic establishment, rows of neatly placed desks and chairs all facing a blackboard and teacher's desk. The walls are decorated with childish masterpieces and announcements of upcoming events and examinations.

The school is in excellent repair for the most part,damages are common even in the indoor spaces. Children learning to control their mastery over the elements or their own strength as they discover the enhancing benefits of chakra on his fists. Jutsu use is relegated to the outdoor spaces, but accidents do happen. The yard behind the school is not used for recreation or recess, rather for learning techniques that are unsafe to learn indoors. There is no grass in this subterranean space, only soft sand and densely packed earth and stone.

Mission Rules
  • Mission, Class, and Tutor threads that come with OOC rewards all are in this category.
  • No more than one may be joined at a time.
    • One may perform a Self-Modded Solo Mission and still partake in a Mission/Class. This is the only exception to the ruling.
  • By giving up the OOC rewards associated with the mission, then it counts as a [Free] Topic and does not take up a [Mission], [Class], or [Tutor] slot for the player.

Basic Rules
  • Missions take a mission slot. Read more on RP slots here
  • Self-Modded Solo Missions do not take up a mission slot (in other words, you can be on a modded mission AND a self-modded solo mission at the same time).
  • Mission Mods receive mission rewards. Mission Mods may take no more than 4 modded missions on at once but they may only participate in one with their PC at any given time.
  • S Rank Missions are assigned by Sennins and the Kage only; or by an alternative system determined by the Council but the prerequisites of the mission and the rewards earned are the same.
  • One Council Member or person pre-approved by the Council (such as a Mission Mod) must pre-approve mission requests.
  • Bounties can be issued by Village Councils to collect a Missing or errant villager. Payment equals the target's OOC rank in pay as a solo mission without combat and triple the target's OOC rank in pay as a modded group mission split between the successful bounty hunters if a complete modded battle takes place.
  • Councils may determine their own procedures for approving missions.
  • The rewards for the missions are given using the date at which the mission started (first IC post by either the mod or the participant). This is because a a player can only do up to 2 solo missions in a week or 2 group missions in a month.

Allowed Mission Ranks
At minimum the following ranks must be present for a mission of X rank to occur. Village councils are free to raise these restrictions, but not lower them.
  • E rank Missions/Lessons - Academy Student OR, for a mission, at least one Genin

Teaching and Mentoring System

Some shinobis have been around for a long time, they have seen things that one would think to find only in legends. Some have taken to teaching Academy Students while others have taken on a pupil who would one day carry on their works. Even a well-trained and experienced shinobi can sometimes find a master.
