Default Greetings

Hello, everyone. I'm Baron Brigitte (BB), and this is my first time on this site.

I used to be really into Naruto as a kid and recently wanted to catch up on how the series ended. My knowledge is a little stuck in Part One, but I have an educated(ish) knowledge of Shippuden. Since I've been nostalgic for the series, my brain's been turning out concepts for original characters and I've been looking for a place to try them out.

While I'm new to this site in particular, I've done my fair share of Tabletop, Skype and Forum roleplay. Hopefully, I'll be able to pick it up quickly.

I'm looking forward to playing and talking with all of you, so please don't be shy and come say hello to me. I'd love to know what stories everyone is looking to tell. The concept I'm most interested in working on is a genjutsu specialist.

Why hello there

If you have any questions or trouble with the system feel free to contact me. For now have a look around!

Edit: to talk to people live you can join the Skype chat. The link is in the handbook section.

Yooo Baron, welcome to Engi! Honestly, the fact that you're more familiar with Naruto pre-timeskip may help you here.

Engi takes place in a divergent world from the main canonverse, splitting off from Naruto at the point of the Sasuke Retrieval arc, and based on an understanding of jutsu based on what we knew before Shippudin, where the knowledge of how to use various elements were village secrets rather than expressions of innate elemental attributes.

The setting is over 100 years since the chuunin exams, after the main characters have faded away and become figures of history, to give us space from canon and have time to develop the setting to make it more distinct. So that's the premise.

If you have any questions about any specific aspects of Engi, don't be afraid to say so!

Thank you guys for the warm welcomes.

I am having a little bit of difficulty grasping the system, but I'm wanting to keep my concept pretty simple in not having a blood line or clan. My main question would be which village has the most activity to start playing in. From what I gathered, the most active threads seem to be private stories, so I'm not sure where to start.

Honestly, Grass and Leaf are the most active, though Stone and Sand still have some movement.

I think Grass would be a great place to start because of the sheer activity, though Leaf has a slightly less complicated past. Send us messages whenever you're stuck, we will totally guide you through everything, the system can be really intimidating at first. After your first character you'll be a pro.

Hey! Welcome BB!

You've stumbled onto some awesomeness, if I do say so myself. If you have any questions about anything at all, feel free to ask me something in my visitor message wall or if it's something you feel merits a lengthy discussion, you can try me for a PM.

As for your private story issue, I'd just like to highlight that most of the threads done on Engi are done with between 2 to 4 people, with large Village-wide plots often being handled by being split up into multiple threads with different participants.

Most of the threads you see on the board were set up simply by talking about it over Skype chat, or putting up a thread request in our Find A Team forum.

Anyhoot, Welcome To Engi!
