About

Hidden Village: 

 Far Beyond the Land of Fire  

During the same time period as our number one hyperactive knucklehead ninja, but in a different continent not yet explored, unfolds a story of epic proportions. It's the story of you and your friends as you become Ninja and raise through the ranks, carving out your very own Ninja way.  

Hidden Village: Far Beyond the Land of Fire is a new tabletop roleplaying game about the events that took place on the other continents of a Shonobi World. The players play as Shinobi-also known as Ninja- stealthy warriors that are able to use chakra to perform supernatural abilities in combat. Ninja are one of the main military powers found in this world. They often come from a Hidden Village where they are trained and employed. In every Hidden Village there are a series of specialized Ninja Clans, each unique and powerful in their own way. The Hidden Villages will use Shinobi to carry out missions for a price and are a staple to the political system of the region. An individual Ninja is part of their community but they all have their very own special story.  

Game Mechanics  

Hidden Village uses a new versatile game system designed for intense strategy. It is a "traditional" role playing game in the sense that it has several players, each with their own character, and a game master. Characters may choose from nearly endless skills and traits which give bonuses and extraordinary supernatural abilities.The game master has rules and tools for fleshing out the world around the group, and for fast easy designing of missions, whether they be stand alone scenarios or those furthering the progression of the main story arc. There is an ever growing list of fair and balanced Jutsu to choose from and there will even be a way to develop and make your own Jutsu. Character advancement comes from training, accomplishing missions and winning battles. 

Overview of the Region  

In this part of a Shinobi World, the many different lands function as individual political entities. Warring and trading one with another. Even though they have their conflicts they are all ultimately under the rule of an emperor who taxes each land. He mostly keeps out of their affairs but if taxes go unpaid or if a land disobeys his orders he attacks them with his dreaded Samurai of the setting Sun, massacuring and burning to the ground all within the area. In these lands are hidden villages- cities and towns that train and develop Shinobi to protect themselves and their land from the other counties in the empire. The hidden villages train ninja beginning while they're young and use them to carry out missions for their country, or for other countries for a fee. People can also hire Shinobi for personal jobs. The Shinobi of a hidden village are the main military force of their country. The head of each hidden villages has the same status as the leaders of their country.  

The Party  

The player character Shinobi can form a group or party, sharing abilities, items and powers. Typically they share a common goal. Together, the Group takes on Missions and faces obstacles, dealing with a variety of things including martial arts, stealth, espionage, sabotage, assassination and so much more; bringing the group and the individuals closer together and closer to their dreams and goals.  

Examples of Playable Clans  

There are many more Clans in the Game, but here are some examples you would be able to choose from when making your very own Shinobi to play in this world. There are also a number of Bloodline traits and endless Jutsus in the game.  

Seikatsu Clan (生活習慣) is one of the 3 noble clans of the Village Hidden in the Grave. Many of their clan's techniques revolve around the devouring of other ninja's chakra and energy. It has had only 2 family heads, even though it is one of the oldest clans in existence. Due to the Seikatsu's Karita jikan jutsu witch prolongs the life of the caster at the cost of someone else's life.

Kōtetsu Clan (鋼鉄の戦士) is the head clan of the Village Hidden in Steel. Bloodline members of this clan are born with a series of black birthmarks often times symmetrical on both sides of the body. Kenja (or wise men) of there clan believe these markings to be prophetic and an abstract painting of their destiney, one that will only become evident at there death. The majority of this clans Jutsu revolve around the control and use of metals.  

Kudaketa Clan (砕けた心) is a Shinobi clan from the Land of Echoes, where The Golden Emperor of the dragon age established Samurai with powerful chakra control. Many clans became extinct trying to push his conquering armies from their lands. But his advances ended when they came into contact with a group of ninja who had lost everything to him perhaps even their minds. The group of ninja were masters of Genjutsu. They became capable of drawing from their own tragic experiences and tortures to make their illusions feel so believable that they would cause people to loosen their grip on reality and even lose their very minds. This group of ninja honed their skills and over time became the Kudaketa clan also know as Nagekinokabe or wailing wall of the west mountains. Mental illness coupled with extreme Genjutsu power is a fairly common occurrence in this clan.  

Ōkami Clan (狼) is one of the earlier clans which existed even before the harnessing of Chakra. While not a great deal is known about their origin or history, they are now one of the powerful Metaphorical Empires. They belong to the village hidden in the Beast. Which is an idea rather than an actual place. The travel as nomads and live and speak with nature. However as they age, they gain more and more powers of different beasts, until in their old age they are completely beast. Typically at that point they go on a violent rampage devouring other ninja for their chakra. It is then the sacred duty of their children to hunt them and put them down.  

Sandā Clan (サンダー) you must be born ito this clan. It is a clan with violent chakra found within the land of Wars. They are known for their speed and brutality. Because of the intense sporadic nature of their chakra, lighting style jutsus come easily to them. Kenja of their clan are in possession of a forbidden jutsu said to be capable of leveling cities. It is known as the Thunder God Jutsu. There hasn't been a Ninja capable of casting it in 5 generations. It is easy to recognize a ninja from this clan due to their glowing white eyes.  

Mushi Clan (無私) is a clan of extremely skilled Medical Shinobi. it is even said that they have a jutsu that can bring someone back from the dead. This talent in healing arts is due to the bloodline trait that the clan possesses. However, once every few generations, a member of the clan will be born with an opposite ability instead. When they try to heal only rot and death occur. The emperor has made a law that any such born this way are to be put to death. Even so this clan has been known to hide these children.

Risks and challenges

The game mechanics are complete, but there is still work to do. The game still needs almost all of its art, this is partially what the Kickstarter is for.
I don't anticipate any problems, but in the case of serious illness or personal tragedy, I will keep you posted. I would like you all to enjoy Hidden Village and the whole Kickstarter experience, and will do my absolute best to make that happen.
