Naruto
For the most part this universe setup is more of a guide to creating a character in the Naruto universe because to make an adventure in the Naruto universe is pretty straightforward. First off the story can obviously take place at any point in the Naruto universe that you want so I don't need to go over that.There is one major change and that is that people use all of their cliches in conjunction when playing and not just one because the cliches are not set up the same way(this is why the character creation becomes so much more involving). 

CHARACTER CREATION
First off you are given 4 dice one to decide the village or organization you will be associated with, one to decide what clan you are from, one to decide what type of ninja you will be, and one final die to decide what your rank or position is as a ninja.

Ninja Type Cliche

JinchurikiThis is someone who has had a demon put into them with a seal. Someone using this ninja type cannot have a clan/bloodline cliche and must use the die for a second die for this instead. They are incredibly powerful and can be very dangerous when their power is unchecked.
Cursed SealLike a Jinchuriki, someone using this ninja type cannot have a clan/bloodline cliche and must use the die for a second die for this instead

Familiar UserFamiliar users are ninjas who get help from numerous types of animals including but not limited to dogs, cats, snakes, monkeys, bugs and birds. These animals are different from summoned creatures because they are with the user at all times and do not leave when they are not needed anymore. Members of the Aburame and the Inuzuka clan are familiar users.
Normal NinjaThis ninja is a completely normal ninja without a special set of techniques or tools.

You will almost always start out as a genin however there may be cases where you start off lower or higher for special stories.

After setting this up, you will then get between 10 and 12 dice (Based on what your GM wants) to divide up among your mastery's of different types of jutsus. The number of dice you have on a type of Jutsu decides what level of that Jutsu type.you can learn up to out of the 4 levels. Each die represents one level and 3 jutsus. Example: If you have two dice on the Genjutsu type, you can learn up to 6 (3 * 2) level 1 and or 2 Genjutsu type jutsus.

Jutsu Types
GenjutsuIllusionary techniques that can trick your opponents.
Taijutsujutsus that use your body and are based mainly around physical attacks.
NinjutsuTechniques that help covertness and are your basic to advanced offensive techniques.
DoujutsuTechniques involving the eyes (These techniques are mainly used when you are a member of the Hyuga or Uchiha bloodlines).
Fuuinjutsujutsus involving summoning and seals (most jutsus in this category are level 3 or 4)
KinjutsuForbidden techniques that are extremely advanced(most are level 3 or 4)

The final step to creating a character is to choose what jutsus he/she will know based on what Jutsu cliches they have. Currently I am only adding jutsus from the manga version of the game because I do noit folow the anime very much however i may add the anime techniques eventually. To find the jutsu lists look on the sidebar under the Naruto link.
You are now ready to begin your adventure.
