- General Info -

Currency: Ryo.
 
Fire Country: This country makes up the western portion of Seichi's mainland, and consists of open plains and large temperate forests of ash, oak, beech, and many more. The occasional crater pockets the land, a souvenir of recent and most unpleasant disasters. Having little land for agriculture, most of the Fire's centers are lively trade or manufacturing cities. The weather here is typically warm for most of the year with the southern regions winters being spent in near constant rain, while the north experiences equal amounts of snow. Snowstorms in this area are rare but not unheard of. Fire country's primary exports are wood, exudates (such as resins and oils), rubber, and animal products. The region's primary language is Konoi.

Earth Country: Villages lie sheltered in the shadows of mountains and valleys across the peaks of the North. In the high altitudes weather changes rapidly and with little warning. Many get by through farming the land, raising goats and sheep. In the capital of Koudou the rich yellow soil provides ample agricultural land and tints the rivers an ochre hue. A large tunnel links the country through its northernmost mountain range, allowing passage to coastal towns and the once great city of Mei which serves now as the country's greatest tourist attraction. Although the country may be new the land is not without its share of scars, the Great Crater marks the site of a formidable event and fragments of the land now float in the sky as islands. The mountains hide many valuable metals which are exported across Seichi, though the people here often sell crafted items made from clay and pottery. The country’s primary language is Konoi with a lesser percentage of the population speaking Nagarean.

Wind Country: Covering a large portion of the Southern coast of Seichi, this country consists of vast pools of tall grass and a web of deeply carved canyons as far as the eye can see. The land here is vast and almost completely flat, so flat that one can see all the way to the horizon. Though, the occasional cliff face seems to jut out of nowhere at all and the scent of smoke often still scents the air. Both of these are a reminder to wind country's most recent invasion of the elements. The land however is especially beautiful in the summer, when the green grass is tall and endless and more akin to an ocean of green then a plain. Yet, as it is also a hostile place, constantly torn by an eternal wind without mercy and so endless it can make any man feel dishearten. The western parts of the land, as it raises towards the mountains, change slightly. The endless plains roll over into gently rolling hills with trees also reappear here in greater amounts. In the east the land becomes cooler as the slow altitude change becomes more apparent terminating in the mountains that border Snow Country, bringing cold winds and snow into the easternmost provinces of the country. Wind country's primary exports are products from herd animals and fruit bearing trees. The regions primary language is Nagarian.

Water Country: Terminating the world to the extreme south, this country is an aggregate of many connected islands with bamboo jungles, waterfalls and bays. A tropical rainforest, this area is high in volcanic activity with natural hot springs and steaming runs of mineral waters making frequent appearances the closer one gets to the islands mountains. Many of these mountains are active volcanoes that erupt from time to time in brilliant and more often than not deadly displays. Thankfully the islanders have learned to predict the flows and have built their cities accordingly. Thick plumes of steam shroud the islands' mountains from sight, spilling out into the surrounding oceans during cooler temperatures of morning and night and forming a seemingly impenetrably dense fog. Typical of rainforests, this area receives rain regularly and experiences a long Wet Season. The region's primary exports are fish, herbs and spices, coffee, and steam based technology. The region's primary language is Sati.
 
Wave Country: While the centre of the Water Country struggled to recover from a devastating wave, a better fairing island to the West grew tired of supporting the droves of refugees flocking to shelter and the taxes imposed to fund the country’s restoration. The people rallied around the notion of independence and closed off its borders, seeking to grow into a prosperous nation of its own. Even as reoccurring seismic activity brings in great waves and volcanic eruptions scorch the landscape, the island continues to grow. Areas where the volcanic activity has slowed down give Wave a considerable amount of fertile land, making it the agricultural powerhouse of Seichi's island nations. The country’s main language is Sati and its primary exports are fish, fresh produce, and grains.
 
Rain Country: The smallest of Seichi’s island nations, it was able to recover thanks to local nobles financing restoration efforts, bringing in workers and goods from the mainland. This lead to a shift in power and the country’s eventual secession from the Water country. Local volcanic activity often causes great clouds of sulphur and ash to pass over the country, creating acid rain that scars the landscape. However the people are rapidly adapting to these conditions, and some are even finding uses for the acidic water. Being close to the mainland the country enjoys trade with the Fire and Wind countries, exchanging fish and metals from their expansive mines for goods that are traded throughout the Rain, Wave and Water countries. The country primarily speaks Sati.

Frost Country: Far to the north, this region consists almost entirely of snow capped mountains consisting of the highest elevations in all of Seichi, the largest of these being the massive Mount Tenken. Hundreds of miles of white capped peaks and jagged frozen wastelands make up this country with only the occasional valley sheltering between them. During the summer seasons, these valleys are filled with beautiful wildflowers that lay dormant for the rest of the year. It is very difficult for even the most well prepared rock climber to traverse these mountains due to the extremely freezing weather and lack of protection from the elements. Many travellers have been found frozen to death along the beaten path, their frost cemented corpses a small lump in the snowdrifts. Boreal forests border the country to the west and to the south, rolling down the mountainsides to mingle with the terrain of Frosts neighboring countries.The regions primary exports are hunted meat and furs, stone, salt and clay. The regions primary language is Hyougaan.
 
Stone Country: In the centre of the continent this rocky country acts as a neutral state, housing the Shinobi Academy where students from across Seichi go to train. The country serves as a bustling trade route between East and West. Towns establish themselves besides rivers and lakes carried down from the mountains of Frost. Established by some enterprising individuals in the wake of the continent shattering disasters, Stone Country sits in a key location at the heart of the continent. Surrounded by a variety of climates, the borders of the Stone are as diverse as its people; migrants, merchants and refugees coming in from every part of Seichi. The central region is battered by fierce winds, polishing the grey stones to a shine, but also experiences the full range of Seichi's climates, with cold wind and snow coming down from the surroundings, hot winds bringing sweltering heat from Sun Country, and more mild temperatures coming in from Wind Country. The country exports little of its own, mainly profiting on trade and toll taxes. The populace speak a various array of languages and dialects, however the primary language is Common with regional Hyougaan inflection.
 
Snow Country: Formally this land held the capital of Frost, it has since been buried under a great snowstorm and left to its own devices as the upper echelons of Frost moved northwards in search of safety and stability. Much of the land is an endless sea of white, even in the midst of summer. Many seek shelter in the mountains, although the southern river fuelled by melting snow leaves substantial farmland for those who can brave the chill weather. In the southeast tropical monsoons suddenly freeze into terrible storms of hail and snow. Coastal regions serve as ports of trade for the Wind and Water countries, with the sea connecting the Snow and Wind Countries freezing in winter to the point of allowing passage on foot. The people mainly speak Hyougaan. The primary export of Snow is gems and precious metals gathered from mines deep beneath the snow encrusted ground.
 
Sun Country: Most of the country is sandy desert, filled with large sandy dunes and overlooked by the bright and overbearing sun that gives Sun country its name. Whilst water is sparse, there are a few oases scattered across the land. Mountains range across the north and west, their bulky red rock reaching for the sun. The ground hardens as you travel towards the mountains becoming cracked red dirt dried by the intense heat and starving for water. Rock formations, some vast and immense, also abound in the dunes to the south and west. To the east, White-sanded beaches rim the coast with almost crystal clear waters. The eastern side of the country contains most of the grazing and farming lands where the soil is rich and rain falls more often. A large river cuts through the rock and hard packed ground, forming a canyon of rushing rapids that nourishes the lands that have quickly become one of the largest grain produces in all of Seichi. Because of this, the areas top exports are grains as well as glass created from the very sands that so plentifully surround them. The regions primary language is Rikuhuu.
 
Lighting Country: When the earth itself shook and broke, disrupting the old world, the lands on the Northern border of Sun Country  opened themselves to further habitation. Sun's northern nobles mounted expeditions past the mountain ranges that had long since separated their lands from Silence and discovered grassy steppes filled with game and hardy but edible plants. They also found the remnants of an abandoned settlement which served as the foundation for the city of Ichiba. With these new lands the nobles of the oft-disparaged Kauhigo regions seceded from Sun Country to form their own nation, retaining control of their original lands as well as the new territories to the north, though there is much of the northern steppes which are free from control of any particular group or family. Consisting primarily of foothills and mountainous steppes, which terminate to the north into the bogs and swamps of Silence, Lightning Country is often wracked with storms due to the Spine Mountains at its centre, which are near constantly the target of electrical discharge. A ferry system moves goods and people between Tousei and Ichiba to avoid the dangers of travelling the mountain passes. The country primarily speaks Kauhi, and has no major exports or imports.

Land of Silence: Beyond the official countries lies lands that emit no sound but wind roars and distant beast howls. These are lands of ruin, mishap and death. Dark almost all day, inhospitable and  foreboding the land lays untouched for there is little of worth beneath its shadowy sky. Past its shores by a reasonable distance lies islands that none know of and are yet undiscovered. The only people that make this land their home are the hunted, the forsaken and the outcasts. Thieves, thugs, murderers and scoundrels all tend to hide in these forsaken lands, a literal haven to those who wish to hide from the worlds prying eyes. Life has begun to return to the shrinking lands of Silence, the recent natural disasters bringing water and earth inland and creating large swathes of swamps and murky mires that run along the border with Lightning Country. Warnings to those who choose to travel these bogs, the earth itself has been known to swallow up the occasional lost traveller from time to time, the dense air muffling even their final screams.

Kawagakure's Village Report
The Village Hidden In The River


42e8b735-c62e-4740-b97d-3f48c20b940f.jpg


Leader: Taiyoukage

Status: Neutral

Alliances: None

Symbol:

Untitled-1.png

Location: Sun Country

 

Description:

The Aleena river flows through what was once a barren wasteland of sand dunes, bringing with it new life and fertile soil. The village of Kawagakure situates itself on the upper stretch of the river where the waters flow quickly downstream, sheltered by sandstone canyon walls on either side of it's banks. To the west the waters recede from the dangerous rapids upriver to the more placid tone that flow through the village. Because of these rapids, travel by river is limited only from the east as the currents and whirlpools formed by the west's swiftly moving whitewater make water based travel from further up river nothing but a death wish. The canyon that flanks the village provides outcroppings of rock that shelter the village from the harsh heat of the unforgiving desert sun.

 

The buildings here are typically made from a mixture of sand, ground stone and clay, all of which are found plentifully from within the area. These substances are combined together into a concrete like slurry and baked into bricks by the heat of the sun. Homes are built with large open windows to maximize air flow and reduce trapped heat. These windows are built without glass, but come equipped with removable shutters to keep out the elements during the areas occasional storm. The shores of the river the village has made itself on are decorated by lush palm trees and ferns. The river teems with fish, but also the occasional large reptile. Allowing small children to swim unattended is unadvised.

Special:

As befitting a hidden village located in the middle of the Sun Country, Kawagakure's primary form of defense is it's inhospitable location. While Kawagakure benefits from the large river that cuts through the country like a knife, invaders are not quite so lucky. Should invaders come from either the north or the west, the seemingly endless sand dunes can spell the demise of all but the hardiest of people. Water is scarce in these areas - only small, scattered oasis provide that life giving liquid, and with the rolling dunes a person could pass within close proximity to one and would never know it. Another danger of the desert, if invading from an outside nation, is the risk of 'snow blindness'. During the midday hours, the sun can shine so brightly upon the sandy dunes, that those without adequate protection could find their corneas burnt out through over exposure to the glimmering grains. Of course, night is no picnic either, as the desert can grow bone-chillingly cold and those who do not prepare for such could find themselves suffering from hypothermia.

The final defense Kawagakure holds against those that would do her harm is the optical illusion of mirage. Unless one knows precisely where the village lies - and, let's face it, the shifting sands can ensure that even those familiar with the desert could get lost -, then this illusion is particularly effective. The heat of the desert can mess with the eyes of those gazing out over it's vast sea of sand, the shifting air causing people to see things that are not there - or miss what is. The mirages near Kawagakure seem to be especially bad; there are reports that even people intimately familiar with the village have failed to see until they were within only a mile or two.

 

History:

The Aleena river is not a natural waterway, nor is it the result of the Great Upheaval when the elements of the world unleashed their wrath against the population of Seichi, rather it it is the culmination of a project of immense scope undertaken by one of the Hikage of Rikuhigakure. It comes then as no surprise that when the world turned against them, the people of Rikuhi turned to the crowning achievement of Kemuri Zaulyl, one of the greatest Sons of the Sun in recent history. When storms flooded the village they endured, for the sands of Sun Country thirst deeply, and the water dissipated in a matter of days. However the desert was not done with the Shinobi and within days a Sandstorm unlike any they had experienced before struck the region of Rikuhi, ceasing only for a day or so at a time which prevented any rescue or rebuilding efforts as the sand could strip flesh from bone. Soon their water supplies began to dry up in the face of the waves of sand seemingly determined to bury them, and so the people were forced to leave their homes rather than rebuild, leaving during the brief windows the sandstorms gave them.

 

Travelling up the Aleena river in search of a safe location for their new home, the people of Rikuhi picked up a number of travellers from other villages along the way, those who had either left their old home on their own or who had been in Sun at the time. It did not take them long to reach the large canyons from which the river flowed, seeking land beyond the first of the seven great waterfalls of the river. Travelling past the first and second waterfalls, it was behind the third which they would find their new home. The Kemuri Curtain, as it became known, is only twenty feet across and drops one hundred feet down, serving as an excellent defense against any who would seek to travel to the new land they had chosen for their own. Beyond the Curtain a stretch of fertile land spread from each side of the river, providing more than enough land for the people to begin building their new home.

 

Sending out parties of Shinobi, the settlers obtained materials and tools to began constructing their new home, constructing simple farms at first in order to solve the issue of food and then beginning to construct the larger and more luxuries accommodations that they had been used to in their old homes. Under the directions of the highest ranking Shinobi amongst them they began to build a true village, which they came to call Kawagakure, the Village Hidden in the River. Over the next few years they worked hard to ensure that this new village survived, rarely leaving the safety of their canyon home as the world around them raged in conflict and uncertainty.

 

Only recently has the world begun to see the Shinobi with the symbol of the Canyon upon their brow, but Kawagakure is ready to enter the lights of Seichi as one of the great Political Players of the continent.

Yamagakure's Village Report
The Village Hidden In The Mountain


95abf702-71e4-40f2-9da7-2a311a19e19e.jpg


Leader: Shimokage

Status: Neutral

Alliances: None

Symbol:
villagesymbol.png

Location: Frost Country

 

Description:

Mount Tenken is not only the largest mountain in Seichi, it is also the location of Yamagakure. If one knows the right paths one can descend into the heart of the great mountain and find an incredible cavern, too massive to be considered natural, with the buildings of Yamagakure rising out of the stone as if grown. The village is carved in a winding spiral along the inside and sheltered from the otherwise harsh climate of the Hyougaan mountains with the only part of the village bared to the outside world being the jagged peak that serves as the window to the snow laden sky. Curiously enough however, these same peaks seem to keep even a single snowflake from falling within. Yamagakure lays hidden as an oasis of warmth in the cold frigid winters with the temperature usually sitting at a pleasant fifty degrees, quite a drastic difference from the countries well known sub zero tendencies. Aside from rappelling from the top of Tenken's jagged peaks, the village is only accessible by traversing the maze of icy tunnels that snake around the mountain.
 
All of the buildings here are made from stone, with most being carved from the walls of the mountain itself. The houses here are designed to keep out the cold air and to trap the warm to make living here pleasant despite the location. The residents are fond of decorating their homes with luxuries such as high vaulted ceilings and stained glass windows. Even though the village is located in high altitudes, the inside of the village is adorned with a great deal of greenery that would not normally be seen among the ice and snow. The area around the village consists of snow capped peaks as far as the eye can see. Outside of the village, the high altitude and the cold temperatures makes the air thin and hard to breathe. Altitude sickness and hypothermia are almost certain when scaling these mountains without the right equipment and training.
 
Special:
Ice-tipped, jagged mountains are your enemy here. From freezing temperatures that can easily drift into the negatives - sometimes several degrees below, to  howling winds that threaten to knock someone off a precipice, this entire land seems hand made to kill people. Snow and ice cover the vast majority of this mountainous region, making footing uneasy at best and impossible at it's worst, and the constant precipitation and below freezing temperatures make a perfect recipe for frostbite. During the day, when it is not spitting snow, the sun glares upon the snow, reflecting it's bright wrath upon those without adequate eye protection. People who stare too long into the snow may find themselves permanently blinded by the glare, for 'snow blindness' is aptly named.

 

And finally, the ninja have learned to use the natural defenses of the Snow Country to their utmost - at several key chokepoints in the mountainous paths leading to the village, they have placed small explosive charges. These charges, when ignited by those who constantly watch the pass for invaders, explode and trigger large, deadly avalanches - their purpose to bury the village's enemies in a frozen tomb of ice and rock.

History:

In Yamagakure the hopes of the Hyougaan people live once more for though it is the home of people from across Seichi, it is the survivors of Hyouga who brought them to their new home, and it is their expertise which allowed the young village to flourish in its mountainous home. With the elemental fury that scoured the lands of what is now Snow Country reaching unbearable levels the people of Hyouga rapidly headed northwards alongside the aristocracy of old Frost Country. Through blizzards of mythic proportions and freezing nights the already small population of the destroyed Hidden Village was chipped away even more, the dead left in the ice and snow even as they pressed onward in search of a new home.

 

Descending into the lower altitude regions that today belong to the Land of Stone, the Hyougaan refugees joined with others who had fled from the destruction of Konoki and Nagare, the rivalries of old put away in favour of surviving in the changed world they had found themselves in. The future Stone Country held no relief for the beleaguered villager as hot winds blew through the valleys from the East, scorching those who had just recently suffered through the icy fury of their frozen home. Though they had been betrayed by nature once, they sought protection in the arms of the earth as they continued Northwards, the looming peak of Mount Tenken becoming the unconsciously agreed upon destination.

 

The further North they traveled the less it seemed that the elements bothered them. Northern Frost Country was far from idyllic, yet gone were the unnatural blizzards and frosts, which did much to hearten the people. Soon they began to search for a new place to call home, scouts sent out across the slopes of Seichi's greatest mountain. Mere chance had one such scout fall into a cavern, one which lead deep into the heart of the mountain. Further investigation and much discussion between the leaders of the group led to a single conclusion, they had found a place of safety. With blood, and sweat, and no small amount of Doton jutsu the people of this new village began to carve their home out of the center of the great mount, a village that they named Yamagakure.

 

The Hyougaan council had been decimated during the cataclysmic events of the Great Upheaval, and so the leadership of the survivors fell into two distinct factions. The first was the traditionalists who fell behind the sole survivor of the Hyougaan Council of Elders, Aoki Takuya, who believed that following in the traditions of the past would see them through this disaster as it had so many before it. The second faction was comprised of the younger generation of powerful shinobi, nominally lead by the previous Aisukage Hyoujun Miyuki. It was this faction's belief that this new world would require new rules and new traditions. While they had searched for a new home these differences were practically non-existent, but as the village of Yamagakure began to take shape the rules they would follow started to come into question. With no singular leader with enough power among the Yamaii this became a contentious issue.

Yugegakure's Village Report
The Village Hidden In The Steam


3811f584-58a5-4ee9-8f6d-1eb07f3b7269.jpg


Leader: Mizukage

Status: Neutral

Alliances: None

Symbol:
fog-symbol-128.png
Location: Water Country

Description:
The deeper one traverses into the rain forests of Water Country, the more volcanic activity you will encounter. Hot springs and bubbling pools of mineral waters create clouds of steam that thickens in density and become far more frequent the closer one gets to the Huwa region, an ancient hollowed out volcanic crater ringed by smaller dead volcanoes. The entire crater is filled with a steaming lake of water that boils constantly from deep within the earth. The village of Yugegakure, the village hidden in the steam, is built on this lake to utilize the power of this volcanically heated steam for their steam based inventions. Truly hidden in the steam, the rising vapors form billowing clouds around the crater that block out visibility. Thankfully since heat rises however, the visibility from within the village is relatively clear. As the village is located in the middle of a rain forest, it's safe to say that the villagers are also relatively used to the humidity.

The village is built on the waters, and into the sides of the crater, buildings and platforms resting atop rust and heat resistant metal pillars that support the majority of the village and keep them well above the waters reach. Taking a dip in the bubbling waters of the lake is not advised without the proper equipment as a single splash could scald the skin and cause deadly burns. The buildings here are made primarily from metal and often use the steam generated below them in place of electricity to power their businesses and homes. Buildings are designed to resist the heat generated below them and to trap cooler air and expel the warm. The areas immediately around the village are thick with lush tropical foliage with plentiful hot springs that are thick with hot steamy mists. Visibility is at times only a foot or two in front of your own person and the area hard to navigate.

Special:
The ocean serves as this village's first and foremost defense, as it's rolling waves are unpredictable at the best of times and hazardous at the worst.Swimming is also not recommended in the waters off the coast of the island Yugegakure is located on, as the sharks here seem to be both unnaturally large and fearfully aggressive. Aside from this, thanks to the volcanoes that dot the island, it is almost permanently shrouded in a veil of constant mist. If those in ships were to try and brave the mist, all but the most experienced and familiar sailors might find themselves run ashore, or their ships skewered on jagged rocks that jut fourth from the sea.

Once on the island, Yugegakure has made great use of the large, active volcano that smokes atop the island - and while they are not foolish enough to trigger full on eruptions to stave off invaders, the ninja of the village have placed several explosive charges around the mid point of the volcano on which Yugegakure sits. If attacked, the ninja can detonate these charges on whatever side they need to defend - blasting holes in the volcanic sides and letting lava flow freely over their attackers.

History:

Yugegakure is the legacy of the people of Satogakure more than any other, born from their skill in the art of steam technology and their determination not to fade when the very elements of the world seemed poised against them. When the islands of Water Country were struck by typhoon, earthquake, and tsunami the village of Satogakure endured, the brave defenders saving as many as they could even as their village sank beneath the waves that had long served as a defense. Trapped below the surface of the ocean and protected only by a jutsu of incredible power which fed on the life force of willing shinobi, the people of Satogakure were forced to slowly and carefully evacuate their home, tunneling beneath the village and back up onto dry land.

 

Led by the Ooikage of the time, Sumiyori Hikaru, the shinobi and civilians of Satogakure headed west in search of a new home, where they occasionally picked up others willing to join their search. Through the deepest and most desolate jungles of the island they faced predatory creatures and diseases they no longer had the medicine to combat, until they came to the island of Inaba and delved into the Huwa region where none of the locals dared to travel. Through the rings of extinct volcanoes they eventually reached the great crater where they could rebuild safely, a true hidden village for the beleaguered survivors. Declaring this a new land for those who followed him Sumiyori announced the founding of Yugegakure, the Village Hidden in the Steam, and himself the Shodaime Mizukage of the new village.

 

Beginning as a simple village of wood and stone, it took just over two years for Yugegakure to be properly built in a period of uncertainty and difficulty for the founders of the new village. Only trusted shinobi were permitted to leave in order to ensure the secrecy of the Ninja village's founding, sent out to procure the supplies and materials that were required for the growth of their village. For all intents and purposes those who had settled in the Huwa Crater had vanished from the world. 

 

Three years after the Great Upheaval the village was stable enough to make its presence known to the world, shinobi bearing hitai-ate never seen before in the Elemental Countries appearing before the great lords of the lands to announce that the Shinobi of Yugegakure would take on missions in the manner of their predecessors, for the right price.

 

Almost a year has passed since that day, and Yugegakure has grown stronger amidst the turmoil of the new world thanks to the implacable will and unyielding strength of its Shinobi.

TSU Report
The Second Shinobi Univesity

 

 

tsu.gif


Masters: Aoki Takuya (Yamagakure), ??? (Yugegakure), ??? (Kawagakure)

Status: Neutral

Location: Stone Country

Description:

In the center of Stone's windswept valleys there lays the second Shinobi University of Seichi. Part training ground, part gesture of conciliation, and part espionage oportunity, The Shinobi University is sponsored by the three Shinobi Villages as a place to train their youth in the arts of the Shinobi. With a roster of non-affiliated Shinobi as permanent teachers and led by representatives of each of the Hidden Villages, TSU is considered neutral ground and beyond reproach in its teaching. Guest teachers from the Villages do appear from time to time, but the bulk of instructors are simply unaffiliated paid to be unbiased towards students no matter their home (visiting Shinobi teachers are not permitted to know where the students have come from to prevent inherent biases).

 

Located as it is in the center of Stone Country TSU often experiences huge fluctuations in weather, with cold and snow blowing in from the mountains of Frost and Snow Countries, arid heat from Sun, and temperate weather flowing in from the East in unpredictable fashions. It is a common saying among the staff and students that if you don't like the weather you merely have to wait a few hours and it shall change.

 

TSU not only has the facilities and instructors to train pre-Genin shinobi hopefuls, but also has programs for basic ANBU and Medic training.

Watashitachi no Sekai [Our World]
Shortened to Sekai as reference.
 
 
neo%20horizon_zpsw6qegv8v.jpg
 
 
Title:
Kami
Note: This person is NOT a Kage, but a figurehead, and in terms of being a Missing Nin, the thoughts are unison of that person being a greater threat than any Kage hence the term of Kami [God] being used as their title.
 
Leader:
NPC - Katsugi Dai [An older, male, Missing Nin hailing from former Sato]
 
Status:
At War.
 
Location:
Silence.
 
Description:
Changing Neo Horizon's name to Watashitachi no Sekai after the Great Upheaval, the inhabitants made it Our World because it was they who built this place. The village was once a successful port built into cliffs, surrounded by water, and during the Great Upheaval, the village fell into itself, caving into the lands it had been so proudly built upon. Flooding and death filled the caves that Neo Horizon now lay; some rogues being able to escape and continue to live infamous lives while others wrecked havoc at every turn. Those that weren't captured or executed returned to the village in order to rebuild what had been lost... Instead, they found out that the capital of Lightning Country had been built on their previous homeland. Disappointed and frustrated, they decided upon a place further north of the capital but close enough to make tunnels connecting the villages that only certain Missing Nin knew of - secret passages as one would call them and extremely secretive. Two Missing Nin are currently aware of these passages - the Kami, the original builder who has since lost his ability to speak for reasons unknown.
 
Two and a half long years later, Sekai had finally been completed, a self-sustaining village deep inside a large cave complete with defenses. Cliffs still remain as the old was and the inhabitants have created their own homes, black market shops, and council chambers for those powerful enough to reign over the village. The place itself is dark, almost hopeless, but those that have nothing to lose nor a place to call home are welcomed. Lanterns and controlled fire litter the walls of the cliffs, giving a small glimmer of hope to those that are lost, shining against the reflection of the stillness of water that lay at the bottom of these cliffs. The entrance is small yet effective - a draw bridge that expands several hundred feet long and several feet across granting access to those that know where they are going which is only by boat or swimming; the latter being a method not recommended. Upon stepping inside Sekai, staircases and large open areas become visible, populated by people selling anything from fresh fish to frozen kidneys. The staircases lead to other places with shops and homes. Some of the cliffs are adjoined to others by man-made bridges, once again, dotted with lanterns, while some cliffs seem infinite.
 
As the new Kami began his reign, he encouraged everyone to believe in themselves as they had built this place - a place safe from the terrors of leaving one's homeland. He also instated laws for the general population to follow and enforced them with his guards that kept the village safe from those hunting rogue ninja or mutiny. The guards are at the entrance but only for the sake of drawing the bridge in case of attack, otherwise, they bother none visiting Sekai. Those hunting rogue are allowed, however, they run the risk of being openly slaughtered by the ones being hunted or simply because they don't belong. Murder isn't as common in Sekai as one would assume as the laws provided by the Kami protect the village's innocence but like anything ran by rogue or bandless, it happens more often than it would in other villages. Afterall, this place is merely a safe haven from the tyranny of Kages, not a peaceful wonderland...
 
Sekai, as Neo Horizon once did, remains at war with the opposing villages of Seichi.
 
Special:
[Natural Defenses]
= The village is built into the cliffs - naturally occuring limestone.
= The village is underground in an enormous cave - several entrances plight the sandy land of Silence but it is easy to be lost unless knowing where one is going.
= The village is surrounded by water - only access is by boat or swimming.
 
[Man-made Defenses]
= The village is protected by only one entrance - a drawbridge that can seal the village off if necessary.
= The village can extinguish all forms of light - emersing the total place in complete darkness.
= The village has no natural sunlight - several places are dark and man-made caverns for defense purposes are strategically placed for attack.
 
History:
 
Neo Horizon's history is no longer relevant to life's story anymore; there is nothing that can be changed nor altered. Neo Horizon itself was merely a refuge for those that lost hope with their motherland, those that couldn't trust their Kages, and those that were simply abandoned. Despite Neo Horizon being the captial of Silence, not all was anarchy or dismemberment; no, it was a desperate call for those that needed a place to call home. The rogue, the bandless, the confused, and the greedy referred to Neo Horizon as their homeland - not a motherland, but a homeland. Lives were created and taken by the Great Upheaval but those that remembered what Neo Horizon stood for rebuilt the great village that was feared yet loved. With Sekai replacing the name, as all it did, the village has been deemed a safe haven once again with the help of those that constructed a homeland for the unsafe. Sekai is a successful village for the moment as with all things, it is ever-evolving and the history for Sekai is only beginning...
