Okay guys, you know i'm normally down for all of these things like antagonism and creativity. Indeed I've been hatching quite a few plots with people, but i realize that most of them really do come down to some sort of civil war scenario where either the village goes against the country, or the country goes against the village. As a site, we seldom go about the village vs village thing, and for good reason, but we also seem to neglect the internal village issues.
@anbu: Me and Knyves started working on an internal kasai plot be fore he left, one that focused on everyone exploiting the weakess of kasai, and the fact that no other village respects it, nor do any of the criminals in the country. The villages anbu decide to take things into their own hands and drop the curtain of shadow on their actions. SOme people in the village agree, othersdont, but whether they like it or not, its working. We stand now at the point where the decision is of whether to take the forceful new path or a more diplomatic one, and what the consequences of that against the world would be.
@tolkien: As far as Iwa is concerned, I have been onboard with the whole endgame scenario, but like you said, we have never had enough people to do it. Directly after the event activity, died off, and shadow and arz decided to do away with the village as a whole, taking it somewhere that neither of us could reach it. To that end, we have been trying to rp around that, find loopholes, and everything, but with just the two of us, what really is the point now. I think it was a great plot that didnt realy require too many people, but like every evil, it and we run into this. Whats the point of reshaping the world in your image if there are no people.
Also, i've been working on two other plots, previously with a bit more steam, but a lot of the key players have gone missing.
Plot A: For a while, i've been trying to rebuild a water village, a new Kiri if you must, but have run int othe issue of how to make it different, how to play it, how to rule it, and to that end i've been working one of my characters to death in another village, giving constant cameos and snippets of it being built. As of now, a new village has been built in the water country on a volcanic island. The island is large, and is actually an atoll, providing it decent defense, and it is in the middle of the ocean, providing even more. Kimhari and I have made characters for it already, but have yet to establish much else other than it being a haven for the survivors of the kirigakure situation. The country itself had fallen into decline after kiri's destruction, leading to much of its territory being annexed. Now, with a new shinobi force in the works, their goal is to reclaim some of those lands, and to regain their former glory.
Anybody interested can Pm me about it.
Finally, Plot B: It is a furthering of Phy's plots for sora and the demon country. While the idea of sora was good, its excecution outside of actually being built has been... lackluster. To that end xatu and i had been rping about the technology of the village, and how it was truly on a different level from anything else on site. On the flipside, beneath it there was supposed to be the demon country, a notably savage land that had given rise to something threatening the entire shinobi world. For a while iwondered where Phy was going with that, but it seems like the answer was nowhere. I've been rping quite a few of my characters there, making new clans for it, and turning it into an actual hashed out idea. What we have now is a reflection of a budding shinobi village. Various tribes (clans) around the country exist, but one clan in particular sees the power he could attain. He mounts small scale attacks, conquering the neighboring tribes until he eventually unites the entire country under his banner. It is then that he sets his eyes on the neighboring countries, one of which goes for help from one of the shinobi nations.
This is where phy's original plot comes in, with the main villages having too much on their own plates to deal with yet another problem. From this point, sora begins sending scouts and troops to investigate, only for them to end up dying. Sora begins sending more and more powerful equipment with their shinobi, only for it to get stolen, eventually resulting in the demon country's "Shinobi" to infiltrate sora and steal some equipment, becoming even more of a threat than before. Now it becomes sora's job to stop them before things get outta hand.
