Missions are the principle source of income for both individual shinobi and the Hidden Villages from which they hail. In the minds of their clientele shinobi villages are not unlike mercenary groups, selling military force & advanced intelligence, security, tracking, and investigative services at a high price. Clients are willing to pay those exorbitant fees for one reason and one reason only, the skill and abilities of shinobi are unlike any other service one can buy. For many smaller nations that were incapable of maintaining a standing military force to rebuff larger, antagonistic forces, the ability to hire shinobi from these villages became a crucial aspect of their own defense.

The Hidden Villages, especially those representing The Five Great Shinobi Countries who boasted the greatest military power and strongest shinobi, came to rely on these contracts as the primary source of income for their villages, lacking traditional commerce or financial industries on the scale that civilian settlements possessed to support their own economy. On Naruto Saga that tradition continues, with missions representing the most common and straightforward method for characters to obtain currency (Ryō) used to pay for equipment, training, and various other aspects of the Sagaverse that require such payment.



Taking a Mission:

For the purposes of individual ninjas safety, a Hidden Village will only allow ninja to embark on missions solo if the missions rank is equal to or below their ninja rank. Characters may perform missions of higher rank than their own, however, doing so either necessitates the assistance of at least one other Player Character of their rank in order to take a mission of one rank higher, or a Ninja of higher ranking than themselves in order to take a mission of their rank or lower. For example, a Chuunin (C-Rank) may only hand in solo missions of up to C-Rank, while 2 C rank characters could take a B rank.

Characters wishing to embark on a mission must go through the appropriate process, as with any other aspect of the site. Missions can be applied for, and already approved missions can be found in the Mission Section. Once you have selected a mission, members are free to complete it at their leisure (provided it has been approved) in the appropriate location specified in the mission itself and include the full mission within the Opening Post in some way. In order to complete a mission, you simply need to create a Mission Registry here similar to your jutsu registry and link your completed mission within it. In order to collect rewards members must "turn in" their mission(s) by posting a new reply in the Mission Modding Requests Thread with a link to your mission registry boasting the links to your newly completed mission.

Members may participate in as many missions as they wish at any given time, but must first be approved by a moderator in the Mission section. Missions if completed, if incorrectly permitted by a moderator, are voided and may not be redeemed for their rewards, but may still be used for training. Likewise, the act of copy/pasting an illegally taken mission at a later date in an attempt to circumvent these limitations is prohibited and will be voided.

Note: While you're able to have as many mission threads open as you would like, each ninja can only complete one mission per thread. This does not necessarily have to be the same mission (Ie. A Jonin squad leader in a thread may have a separate A rank mission he's to complete to ensure the safety of the Genin squad he's overseeing as they complete their C rank mission. However, the Jonin nor the Genin would not be able to cash in both missions even with the word-count.)



  • D-rank - Assigned to Genin fresh from the Academy. They pose almost no risk to the ninja's life and usually consist of odd jobs like farming and babysitting work.

  • C-rank - Assigned to more experienced genin or Chūnin. They are missions with little to no chance of combat against high ranking ninja. Examples are guarding people against bandits or highwaymen, background investigations, eliminating or capturing bandits or thieves, and capturing or suppressing wild animals.

  • B-rank - Assigned to experienced Chūnin. They are missions anticipated to involve combat with other ninja. Examples are guarding people, espionage, or killing another ninja.

  • A-rank - Assigned to Jōnin, concerning, among other things, village-or state-level matters and trends. Examples are guarding VIPs, dealing with exceptionally strong criminal ninja/individuals or suppressing ninja forces.

  • S-rank - Assigned to experienced Jōnin and concern state-level confidential matters. Examples are assassinating VIPs, and transporting highly classified documents. S rank missions cannot be repeatable.



*Note* Missions are a transactional agreement between two parties, one of which commissioning and offering a reward for a service and the other completing said service. Missions are not personal plot scenes in a vacuum. Unless some individual or some entity/organization is specifically contracting your character to complete a service do not apply for it as a mission. Topics that consist of a Player Character performing a task completely of their own volition with no official/financial interest at play should be completed as standard threads.


Mission name: (What is the name of the mission?)
Mission rank: (What rank is the mission considered? D-S)
Objective: (What is the mission asking for?)
Location: (Where does the mission take place?)
Reward: (What is the reward for completing this mission?)
Mission Description: (The details of the mission IC.)
Mission Details: (The details of the mission OOC. The information in this field is unknown to the character(s) taking part in the mission and is largely meant to guide direction and outline specific events.)

Code:
[b]Mission name:[/b] (What is the name of the mission?)
[b]Mission rank:[/b] (What rank is the mission considered? D-S)
[b]Objective: [/b](What is the mission asking for?)
[b]Location:[/b] (Where does the mission take place?)
[b]Reward:[/b] (What is the reward for completing this mission?)

[b]Mission Details:[/b] (The details of the mission OOC. The information in this field is unknown to the character(s) taking part in the mission and is largely meant to guide direction and outline specific events.)

If there are any NPCs (non-player characters) whose abilities cannot be described quickly and simply, such as ‘a bandit with C-rank stats and a B-rank sword who can use Suiton, Doton, and Ninjutsu library techniques of C-rank or lower’, please add them into the mission application using the template below.

Code:
[b]Name:[/b]
[b]Age:[/b]
[b]General Appearance:[/b]
[b]Personality:[/b]
[b]Goals:[/b]
[b]Abilities:[/b]
[b]Items:[/b]



Ryo Rewards

D: 150 Ryo + 75 for crime
C: 300 Ryo + 150 for Crime
B: 500 Ryo + 250 for Crime
A: 1000 Ryo + 500 for Crime
S: 2000 Ryo + 1000 for Crime

Alternate Rewards

However, if you have no desire for ryo, then you may take an alternative reward. You may use the mission as payment for a jutsu of equal or lower rank, bypassing the normal Ryo and wordcount requirements. As another option, you may receive an item of equal or lower rank to that of the mission, though it cannot exceed the Catalog's prices or power. Repeatable missions may not yield item rewards, and the item in question must be tied to the mission itself somehow.

Completing Missions

In order to complete a mission, you must meet a certain word count requirement before it's counted as complete. Note that even if the mission is completed by multiple people, the word count is not divided but rather each individual must meet the word count requirement in order for it to be complete for themselves. With this in mind, the Mission completion word count requirement is as follows:

D: 750 words
C: 1500 words
B: 2500 words
A: 3500 words
S: 5000 words


After minimum is met, you can earn 25 ryo per 100 words for regular missions, with the cap for this extra Ryo being double the mission payment.

After minimum is met, you can earn 50 ryo per 100 words for crime missions with the cap being double the mission payment

Extra words used for additional Ryo payout still count as part of the mission, and as such cannot be used for any other purpose.



Quest Missions are the name given to Missions on Saga which interact with the site's setting and story, or seek to permanently alter aspects of a village, culture, group or another integral part of the world. Quest Missions may also fall under a particular category called 'Semi-Repeatable'; Semi-Repeatable missions can be taken multiple times, but only once per ninja. Quest Missions are applied for with the [QUEST] tag in the title in the Missions Forum and require approval from a member of the Storyline Team. Quest Missions should be connected to prompts given in Saga's Storyline Tracker or serve as the culmination of long storylines with multiple writers or long build-up. Quest Missions always reward 1 EP in addition to the standard Ryo rewards, but also require an additional 500 Words to complete at all ranks.

Major Quest Missions
Major Quest Missions are special missions for characters which affect major aspects of the site’s setting or storyline. They are often created by the Storyline Team but may also be applied for as the culmination of a storyline, major thread, or series of events involving multiple writers. Major Quest Missions can be applied for with Unique Rewards such as items, additional EP, etc. Major Quest Missions are approved at the sole discretion of the IC Administrator and Storyline team and are rewards for prolonged activity and contribution to the forum through IC efforts.

Quest Mission Template:
Mission name: (What is the name of the mission?)
Mission rank: (What rank is the mission? Quest Missions must be at least C-rank.)

For standard missions aligned with the Ninja Villages, completing the above word-count requirements will leave you with your rewards, without complications. The same, however, cannot be said for missions that cross the Five Great Nations, often known as Crimes. Crime Missions require 25% more words to complete, and the thread in which you do them must be at least 3 posts long. Crime Missions are not simple, everyday tasks, and even at higher ranks the gravity of your work may find you at more risk than those who serve the Elemental Countries. Crime Missions are at risk for invasion; to reflect this, you cannot post once, complete the minimum word-count, and expect to be safe. You also must wait at least 24 hours OOC before exiting the crime mission thread. Would be criminals should beware of engaging in crime missions that would attract attention to themselves or their actions as such missions have the tendency to attract local ANBU and law enforcement.



Narrator Missions are a special classification of missions specifically published by the site as official pieces of the In-Character world and/or ongoing site story. These missions may be either permanent fixtures of the setting or temporary opportunities bound to a limited timeframe or event and may only be embarked on by any individual character a single time. Narrator Missions may possess restrictions in access or rewards/compensation that lies outside of typical Missions standards. Members may not submit applications for customized variants or entirely unique Narrator Missions.
