Shinobi Mission Mode: The Daily Life of a Tōrōgakure Shinobi.

     In an organized Shinobi Village, Shinobi not only act as the military, but as a business too. 
Outside of situations of war, shinobi are assigned various Missions (任務, ninmu) to complete.
Missions can either be hosted by a village client or assigned specifically by the village council,
and can be anything from odd jobs, bodyguard duty, infiltration and even military operations.
Thus they are categorized into the Five Shinobi Rankings, based on both difficulty and danger.

     Completing Missions will earn you a Reward in Ryõs, which go towards buying upgrades,
and in some cases, additional rewards as well. Ryõs are the main Currency unit in Tōrōgakure.
Keep in mind, the Squad shares the Reward. So 200 Ryõs gets divided by 4, becoming 50 each.
If you fail the mission, you won't get the reward − But may get compensation (if you submit it).

     Failure of a Mission is something that is generally very looked down upon in ninja society,
and has severe consequences. The Rank and importance of the mission affects the severity.
While lesser D-rank missions are not a big deal as most of them hold little world significance, 
anything above B-rank can be classified as a Military Operation, thus success is highly crucial.
Each village is different, consequences vary from dishonor, demotion, retirement or execution.
While Tōrōgakure is one of most forgiving, failure is still heavily dishonored within the village.
This sounds harsh, but it is reasonable as failure jeopardizes the village's income and safety.

     − Tōrōgakure Shinobi Rule #01: Shinobi must always put the success of the Mission first.

     On the bright side: Unlike Story Arc Tasks, you can try again to earn any missed Rewards!
As these are generally common missions, and more than likely to come up again in the future.
However, if you manage to complete it successfully − You won't be able to repeat the mission.
Completing enough missions successfully will unlock additional perks, and boost your reputation.
Keep in mind, Missions have Quality Standards which must be upheld to obtain the Rewards.

Mission Types: Static, Obstacles, Role-Play and Combat.

     During missions, you will encounter several obstacles that vary depending on ranks.
While some obstacles are Attribute or Ability based, others will rely on personal choice.
In which case, you will have to decide (reply via note) what course of action to take.
There are five different Types of Missions, each of which has very different effects!

     − Decision: There are no restrictions or factors, simply write or draw the mission.
     − Obstacle: There are different outcomes based your value in a certain Attribute.
     − Roleplay: Contact an Admin, you will perform this mission via Skype Role-play.
     − Combat: Contact an Admin, your stats will be put to the test in trial by Combat!
     − Design: You will need to produce an Outfit Design for your character in that Arc!

     Your choices and abilities will affect or alter the outcomes of missions significantly,
it is not simply a matter of success or failure, there are several grey areas in between.
Furthermore, the outcomes of others will have a ripple effect on your missions as well.

Cooperative Missions: Bringing Allies and Improving Bonds:

     If a Mission looks too difficult to complete alone, you can always bring some help!
Some missions are limited to using your Squad, but many of them can bring anyone!
Bringing another Shinobi along will help you, as they will also be factored into Battles.
Each time you complete a Mission with another shinobi, your Social Link will increase!
However, there are a few Rules and Restrictions to Cooperative Missions to remember:

     − Confirmation: In order to bring someone along, we will need proof of their consent! 
     − Continuity: If you consent to joining, you won't be able to change your paths later.  
     − Difficulty: Bringing a friend won't make it a 2-on-1 situation, it'll be 2-on-2 instead!

Mission Rewards: Earning Rewards and Submitting Tasks.

     Rewards for completing missions will usually come in the form of Ryõs (Currency),
but may come in the form of new abilities, rare equipment, and even just simple gifts.
Not all outcomes have equal rewards, and certain rewards require specific outcomes.

     Keep in mind, you must first submit the mission to gain the reward. In other words, 
you have to draw art or write a story about the mission that meets group standards.
You do not get rewards for being assigned the mission outcome unless specifically stated.
You can only take one mission at a time and cannot be assigned another until it is done,
the only way to get out of doing a mission and take on another mission is to abandon it.

     If you abandon the mission (refuse to submit), you will not get mission rewards,
nor be able to try that mission again! For Arcs, you won't be able to continue the Arc.
You will however be able to continue with missions by selecting a different mission.

The Akarikage Castle: Mission Assignment Desk and Forms.

     The Akarikage's Castle is where you go to sign up for Missions and Arc Assignments.
Story Arc Tasks yield more diverse rewards, but are more difficult than regular Missions.
Typically, Missions are posted on the Mission Board beside the Mission Assignment Desk.
You must choose the corresponding form from the board, and fill out the task information. 
You must bring it in (Send a note to HiddenLanternVillage) and request an assignment.
Remember you may only submit one Mission Request at a time! Don't send several,
because it just creates a lengthy backlog! There's more than 100 Missions to choose from,
you don't need to wait on doing all the Missions that just so happen to not require drawing.


     Like Story Arc Tasks, you simply send a note to the group of the mission you wish to take.
It will be checked, and your success will vary depending on your StatsAbilities, and Items.
While missions can be taken at any time, keep in mind, if you're doing missions in past tense,
your stats and abilities will be reduced accordingly when it comes to deciding the success ratio.
For every mission you complete (success or failure) is added to your Shinobi Mission Record.

Example of a Mission Assignment Note:

     Yamita Miki, requesting assignment for the following mission:

Battle Bandits in Ryuuji Village (C-Rank) − Investigate the recent happenings.
     "There have been some strange disturbances in Ryuuji village, investigate them.
We are led to believe bandits may be involved, so prepare for combat if necessary."
     − Type: Battle! Client: Uranami MugonReward: 100 Ryõs per participant.

Accompanied by (Ask first): Yuudai Akihiko.

"What are you waiting for, NYA?! Prove your worth as a shinobi! Complete Missions!"

Political Factions
The Factions of Tōrōgakure: The Seven Great Political Parties.     Factions are essentially political parties who compete for seats within the village council, where they in turn vote on important issues regarding the village and can suggest new policies. They rank beneath the Akarikage and advisers in politics, but represent the village within court. In the most recent vote, the Fox Faction ended up receiving the majority, with Kirin in second. Though the Kirin has recently split it's seats into two new factions: The Tortoise and the Hare.     − The Awakened Fox (7 / 30) Yuki, Hiroki, Daigorou, Ryota, Tamotsu, Matagi an

Building Stats Properly!
Building Shinobi Attributes Properly! Basics of Stat Building:     At a first glance, the more Stat points you have the stronger you are, right? WRONG! In this case, Quality is better than Quantity, as poorly placed stats are not put to good use. Having a Strong, Balanced Stat Build will get you farther than having lots of points would!     For example, a 5.0 Taijutsu Stat is strong and will augment your melee combat skills, but doesn't really help you resist Genjutsu unless you are able to punch them before it hits. While that may work in some situations, riding on one ability's merits won't get you very far.     You want to Balance you
