Naruto Shinobi (3.5e Class)
From D&D Wiki
|Editing:||Always Editing. Speaking of which, recently realized there are comments. Taking ideas into account, but I've since lost track of Naruto.|
 Naruto Shinobi
Alright. There are probably several people thinking" Oh great, another never fully done naruto ripoff." Well, not this time! I was tired of trying to find a completed version of the famous(or infamous) ninja myself, and got tired of all the incompletes or crap-fests. My real inspiration, however was when i got wind of one of my dnd buddies made the Soul Reaper from another popular anime, Bleach. Well if he can do it, why not try it myself? This is the result.
 Making a Naruto Shinobi
Shinobi are put into a party depending on the path. Should one go for ninjutsu, they could replace a potent caster. Should they choose to specialize in Taijutsu, they can become as effective a combatant as a monk.
Abilities: The Shinobi benefits from high Constitution scores, as it judges the amount of chakra points they have. Wisdom is useful for a ninjutsu or bloodline Shinobi, while a Taijutsu Shinobi prefers a high Strength.
Races: Now, According to the show, there are 5 human villages(plus other smaller ones) so i guess the most common shinboi is a human, but seeing as how humans aren't the only race, i guess other civilized races could also become shinobi, dwarf, elf, etc.
Alignment: Each Shinobi has their own path they follow. A number of ninja can be seen as lawful, however it is not uncommon to see ninja acting on their own for personal reasons, the greater good, or towards selfish goals.
Starting Gold: 2d4×10 gp (50 gp).
Starting Age: Simple.

Class Skills (6 + Int modifier per level, ×4 at 1st level)
 Class Features
All of the following are class features of the shinobi.
Weapon and Armor Proficiency: Shinobi are proficient with kama, nunchucks, shuriken, and all simple and marital weaponry. They are proficient with padded armor (This is equivalent to their chuunin flack jackets).
Chakra: A Shinobi gains an amount of chakra points equal to their Constitution modifier and Wisdom Modifier added together at each level. These points stack at each level. For Example; Naruto is a level 2 shinobi with an 18 Con and a 16Wis. He currently has 14 chakra points, and gains a level. He gains another 7 chakra points, bringing his total chakra pool to 21 points. The reason it's Con and Wis is because in the show, chakra is made from physical and spiritual focus. Should a Shinobi need more chakra, he may deal 2 points of temporary con and wis damage to himself to gain an amount of chakra equal to one-fourth his normal chakra. This can be used multiple times, even if it would drop the Shinobi's Constitution score to 0. If and when this happens, the Shinobi does NOT die instantly, but instead dies when he runs out of chakra.
Ninja's Path (Ex): When He first starts out, a shinobi chooses his "path". That means, he either specializes in ninjutsu, taijutsu, or develops his bloodline trait. Now, the only two bloodline traits available are Byakugan and Sharingan(Cause i'm friggin lazy) and they're low probability. Have your DM roll a d100. If the roll is anywhere from 01-10, you've got byakugan. 86-100 means you have sharingan. They'll be explained a bit later. Sharingan Users are able to learn Ninjutsu as if they had selected the path.
Hidden Shinobi Village (Ex): Each Shinobi, unless a Missing-Nin, belongs to a village. He gains a special bonus to certain things, depending on which village he hails from.
|Dead||Rebuke Undead as Cleric, 1/2 class level caster level, Wis bonus times/day.|
|Leaf||Can take any Shinobi prestige class without meeting the Prerequisites.|
|Mist||Mist Shroud Jutsu - 3 Chakra/round, Parital Concealment|
|Rock||Immunity (Bullrush and Overrun)|
|Sand||Puppeteer Prestige Class (Under Construction)|
|Snow||Resist Cold (1/2 Class level)|
|Sound||Curse Mark (Under construction)|
|Stars||+(1/2 class level) competence bonus to Hide/Move Silently.|
|Waterfall||Manipulate Water - 1 Chakra/Gallon|
Evasion: See Monk; Player's Handbook, pg 41
Sudden Strike: If a shinobi can catch an opponent when they are unable to defend himself effectively from his attack, he can strike a vital spot for extra damage. Whenever a shinobi's target is denied a dex bonus to armor class (whether the target actually has dex bonus or not), the ninja deals an extra 1d6 points of damage with his attack. This extra damage increases by 1d6 points of damage for every six Shinobi levels thereafter. A shinobi can't use sudden strike when flanking an opponent unless the oppenent is denied its dex bonus to ac. This damage also applies to ranged attacks against targets up to 30 feet away. Creatures with concealment, creatures without discernible anatomies, and creatures immune to extra damage from critical hits are all immune to sudden strikes. A shinobi can't make a sudden strike while the limbs of a creature whose vitals are out of reach. A shinobi can't use sudden strike to deliver nonlethal damage. Weapons capable of dealing only nonlethal damage don't deal extra damage when used as part of a sudden strike. Extra damage from sudden strike ability stacks with the extra damage from sneak attack whenever both would apply to the same target.
Chakra Accumulation (Sp): Chakra Accumulation : The Shinobi can accumulate chakra at one point in his body to gain amazing gripping power. This can be used to walk on walls, ceilings, otherwise impassable terrain, or to gain a +10 bonus to grapple checks. Uses 2 chakra a round, or 1 chakra per square moved, if not in combat. At 10th level, the Shinobi can use this ability to walk/stand on water at 3 chakra per round or 2 chakra per square(out of combat). While using this ability, the Shinobi must make a DC 15 concentration check for each round the ability is active, or each square moved, or lose the effect.
Great Leap: See Ninja; Complete Adventurer, pg 8
Trapfinding: See Rogue; Player's Handbook pg 50
Purity of Body (Ex): At 6th level, a shinobi gains immunity to all diseases except for supernatural and magical diseases.
Acrobatics: See Ninja, Complete Adventurer, pg 8
Slow Fall (Ex): At 8th level or higher, a shinobi within arm’s reach of a wall can use it to slow her descent. When first using this ability, she takes damage as if the fall were 20 feet shorter than it actually is. The shinobi’s ability to slow her fall (that is, to reduce the effective distance of the fall when next to a wall) improves with her shinobi level.
Speed Climb: See Ninja, Complete Adventurer, pg 8
Poison Use: See Ninja, Complete Adventurer, pg 8
Improved Evasion (Ex): At 12th level, a shinobi’s evasion ability improves. He still takes no damage on a successful Reflex saving throw against attacks, but henceforth he takes only half damage on a failed save. A helpless shinobi does not gain the benefit of improved evasion.
Wholeness of Body (Su): At 16th level or higher, a shinobi can heal his own wounds. He can heal a number of hit points of damage equal to twice his current shinobi level each day, and he can spread this healing out among several uses.
Trap Sense +1: See Rogue, Player's Handbook, pg 50
Diamond Body (Su): At 20th level, a shinobi gains immunity to poisons of all kinds.
Ninja Path: The Specifics (Su): Alright. There are three paths. Ninjutsu; Very similar to spells, but not as potent, and you need somatic components. Unless specified, Jutsu somatic components are free actions. Taijutsu; Increase your melee potency with Combos giving you extra attacks at specified attack values. Bloodline Traits; Byakugan and Sharingan. These add special values to your repitoire of normal abilities.
you may only learn 1 jutsu whenever you attain the required level for the next set of jutsu. I.E. Naruto learned the Sexy Jutsu at level 1, and just attained level 3. He learns Shadow Clone, but can no longer learn Fireball because he must use so much time mastering his new jutsu. Jutsu with a chakra cost of #+#/d#, such as Dragon Fire Jutsu, 5+1/d6 means there is an extra chakra point used for each d6 of damage. A level 10 Shinobi using Dragon fire jutsu would pay 13 chakra points.
|Substitution||1||2||When a Character is allowed a Reflex Save, or find themselves the target of an attack of opportunity, they may use this jutsu to replace themsleves with a random scenery object nearby.

 Shinobi in the World
|“||"I won’t run away anymore… I won’t go back on my word… that is my Ninja way!"||”|
|—Naruto Uzumaki, Human Shinobi|
Shinobi are whatever you as a DM want them to be. Mercenaries, Assassins, Cultists, you name it.
Daily Life: Shinobi Wake up and instantly go through their own personal training regiment, which is determined by their path. Taijutsuists get up and do several physical exercises, Ninjutsuists work on focusing and controlling their chakra, and The bloodliners work on keeping their eyes honed to the maximum.
Notables: The three most notable of the Shinobi are the Sannin. Jiraya, aka "Pervy Toad Sage", Tsunade, aka "The Legendary Sucker", and Orochimaru, aka "The really really creepy guy after sasuke's body".
ok maybe I made that last nickname up.
Organizations: There are villages of shinobi in the show, these organizations, i guess, are the main things. Hidden village of Fire, Water, Earth, Sound, and Lightning, plus many more, smaller hidden villages.
NPC Reactions: Hey, Dms, USE YOUR IMAGINATION! Lazy b******s....

EL 10: Naruto usually stays nice and quiet at his task. Or ramen shop. Until someone see fit to blame something on the PCs. Naruto then engages words with the PCs. Should the PCs see fit to attack, Naruto uses Shadow Clone, then the clones use Sexy jutsu to daze the Pcs. Begin the beating on. When Naruto is subdued(20 hp or lower) he realizes said other npc set him up, apologizes to the PCs, 75% chance he takes out his frog wallet and pays the PCs 1d20 Platinum, and chases after the other NPC.
