Naruto Shinobi (3.5e Class)
From D&D Wiki
The shinobi is a class that functions as the shinobi from the Naruto Universe. The class itself is somewhat of a combination of the ninja, wizard, and sorcerer classes in that it uses spell equivalents of the jutsu techniques in Naruto, but has the opportunity to specialize in a certain style of jutsu, similar to a specialized wizard.
Making a Naruto Shinobi
The shinobi's role in the party varies widely based on which path they have chosen. Should one go for ninjutsu, they could replace a potent caster. Should they choose to specialize in taijutsu, they could become as effective at CQC(close-quarters-combat) 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: Any race that can support magic or psychic abilities is capable of becoming a shinobi. However the most common races are humans, half-elves, gnomes, and the oriental races. It would not be unreasonable to find an elven or halfling shinobi, although dwarves are a bit more rare.
Alignment: Each Shinobi has their own path they follow. A number of ninja can be seen as lawful, though it is not uncommon to see ninja acting on their own for personal reasons, the greater good, or towards selfish goals.

Class Skills (8 + Int modifier per level, ×4 at 1st level)
All of the following are class features of the shinobi.
Weapon and Armor Proficiency: Shinobi are proficient with kama, nunchucks, shuriken, whip and all simple and marital weaponry. They are proficient with leather armor(this is equivalent to their chuunin flack jackets).
Chakra: A Shinobi has a chakra pool the size of the level modifier(found above) and also gains bonus chakra points at every level calulated by Constitution and Wisdom added together off the bonus spell points chart at each level. These points stack at each level. Constitution and Wisdom are used because chakra is composed of physical and spiritual energy. Should a Shinobi need more chakra, he may deal 1 point of temporary Constitution damage to himself to gain an amount of chakra equal to 1/4 of his normal chakra. This can be used multiple times, even if it would drop the Shinobi's Constitution score to 0. If/when this happens, the Shinobi does NOT die instantly, but instead dies should he run out of chakra.
Chakra Nature: All Shinobi have 1 of 6 basic Chakra Natures. The Natures are Fire, Wind, Lightning, Earth, & Water. All shinobi have at least 1 nature however to determin how many natures a Shinobi has roll a d%. 1-24 the shinobi has only 1 Nature, 25-74 the shinobi has 2 natures and a Kekkei Genkai, 75-99 the shinobi has 3 natures and a kekkei genkai, 100 the shinobi has 4 Natures and a Kekkei Genkai and gets Double their Chakra can roll percentiles again and has 1 percent chance on either side of the percentile spectrum to have rinnegan.

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 AC(whether the target actually has a bonus or not) the shinobi 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. Creatures with concealment, creatures without discernible anatomies, and creatures immune to extra damage from critical hits are all immune to sudden strikes. Extra damage from sudden strike ability stacks with the extra damage from sneak attack whenever both would apply to the same target. If sudden strike is applied to a nonlethal attack or weapon the damage becomes nonlethal.
Kekkei Genkai (Sp): Kekkei Genkai: As a Shinobi grows in skill and ability their power over their Chakra grows and they later gain the ability to weild a special kind of Ninjutsu called KEKKEI GENKAI. This ability grows in strength as the Shinobi gains Levels. The Shinobi however is only able to wield a single kind of Kekkei Genkai, the possible Kekkei Genkai are as follow.
Ice: The shinobi can create and control 5 lbs of Ice per 1 chakra spent, The Shinobi can then transform the Ice as they see fit. Making weapons or barriers
Swift: The Shinobi is able to multiply their base movement by the amount of chakra they spend.
Magnet: The Shinobi is able to control the Magnetic fields of metal objects, The weight of metal the Shinobi can control is 4 × 1/2 Level + Str.
Explosion: The Shinobi is able to cause an Explosion with their touch or by infusing an Object with their Chakra. The Explosive damage caused is 10 + 1d10 per 3 chakra (max of 20d10). The radius of the explosion can be from 1 inch to 10 feet.
Chakra Accumulation (Sp): Chakra Accumulation : The shinobi learns to accumulate chakra in parts of her body, allowing her to affix herself to any surface with her hands or feet. This ability functions as the first level wizard spell spider climb, with a few exceptions. First, this ability works regardless of the shinobi's apparel(gloves or footwear). Second, the shinobi moves at her base speed whether she is upside down(affixed to a ceiling) or parallel to the ground(affixed to a wall). Thirdly, this jutsu will work on ANY solid surface and the surface of water alike. Using the ability does not cost chakra, since the chakra is merely accumulated at one point, rather than being utilized or released.
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.

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 equal to three times his current shinobi level each day, and he can spread this healing out among multiple uses.

Bloodline Traits: Byakugan, Sharingan, and Rinnegan. These add special values to your repertoire of normal abilities.
You may only learn 1 jutsu whenever you attain the required level, unless it is the 1st level. In which case all level 1 jutsu are learned. you may also choose between rasengan or chidori for free in addition to your new jutsu at lvl 11. Example: Naruto just attained level 3. He learns Shadow Clone, but can no longer learn Fireball because he must focus so much time mastering his new jutsu. Jutsu with a chakra cost of X + X/dX means there is an extra chakra point cost for each die of damage.

Caster takes 1d6 damage as he bleeds from his eye, causing a permanent -2 to Spot and Search checks as the damage slowly causes him to go blind at a maximum of -20 per eye(unless the possessor has the Eternal Mangekyo, in which case the damage suffered is 1d4 and no -2 to Spot and Search).|
|Mangekyo Sharingan Sight||20||3/5 rounds||Gains maximum proficiency with her Mangekyo Sharingan. Character is treated as having true sight out to 90 ft. Character can also see through invisibility. +12 dodge bonus to all defenses.|
|20||150||This is a very powerful attack that should only be used in last-case scenarios. The user summons Susanoo, an armor completely made of solid chakra that surrounds the user. Caster takes 2d6 damage as he bleeds from his eyes, causing a permanent -2 to Spot and Search checks as the damage slowly causes him to go blind at a maximum of -20(unless the possessor has the Eternal Mangekyo, in which case the damage suffered is 1d6 every other round and no -2 to Spot and Search). User has complete concealment, and cannot act. Susanoo is equipped with two of its size category + 5 Bastard Swords(Susanoo can be summoned in a place as small as large to his max size of gargantuan if space allows, however an extra -1 to spot and search for each size in excess of large). Deals an additional 8d10 damage to every strike. Susanoo's saves, abilities, and movement speed are the same as user's with a +35 to base attack bonus. He alternatively has a greatbow with the same addition to damage as the users bastard sword. It also has the Susanoo version of Grand Fireball. Cost = 3 x Grand Fireball, as this is three attacks. His health is twice the max of user and can be regenerated completely with spending 75 chakra.|
Bloodline Traits The Rinnegan
|Decipher Text||1||N/A||The caster gains a +2 to decipher text. Gains another +2 every level.|
|Six Paths Technique||3||5/Per Path||The character is given the ability to reanimate 6 dead bodies and use them as if they were his own body, with each bearing its own Rinnegan. Each body costs 5 points to reanimate. Once reanimated the new body acts as an extension of the original, being able to cast the same jutsus and utilize the same attacks. They have the same ability scores and chakra points as the original host. When it's the player’s turn they can move and attack with all the Paths at the same time as if they all had their own simultaneous turns. Each body shares the same field of vision. Once gaining the other Rinnegan abilities the user is able to split the abilities to the other Paths. Caster also gains ability to summon at will black metal rods acting as +2 long swords(but with piercing damage) with an additional +1 every other level. The rods can be any size category from fine to one size larger than the caster’s. These rods can also be fired from either palm of the caster's hand, up to two per attack, at which point they have a range increment of 30ft. These rods have a hardness of 2/lvl, and conduct the caster's chakra at will. When not acting as weapons rods can be any length up to 15ft and up to a diameter of 1ft.|
|Deva Path||5||5||Character learns how to use Shinra Tensei and Bansho Ten'in. Shinra Tensei can launch enemies(30ft cone OR 1 object per level or 1 character every fifth level, may deal 1d10/lvl force damage if caster wishes). Bansho Ten'in pulls/moves enemies up to 15ft/lvl and allows the caster to attack once with her highest attack bonus if target is brought within striking distance.|
|Asura Path||7||10||The Asura Path allows for the user to become mechanized, temporarily increasing all physical ability scores by +5(Str, Dex, and Con) as well as gaining a +5 natural armor bonus to AC. While in this form the user can grow an extra set of arms, either from the forearm up sprouting at the elbow of each arm or a full set just under the armpit of the original, along with two more faces, allowing for a +1 attack bonus/every other level and for the caster to not be flanked or sneaked upon(the last bit is primarily for when the Asura Path is solo, seeing as how all Paths' share a field of vision).|
|Human Path||9||75 per target||This allows the user to read minds. The user must make and maintain physical contact with the person whose mind they're trying to read, and must beat the victim’s Will save with a concentration check with a +3 bonus per level in order to search the victim’s mind. Should the caster succeed, the victim is incapacitated until the caster breaks physical contact or releases the victim. Able to incapacitate two individuals at a time(seeing as how the Path has two hands), but may only search one mind at a time. Upon release, the caster may attempt to rip out the victim’s soul. The victim must make a Fort save against the Path's concentration check or their soul is stolen by the caster. If the victim succeeds in their Fort save they may take an attack of opportunity.|
|Animal Path||11||Varies||The Animal Path allows the user to summon any creature(at DM discretion), acting as an additional extension to the Six Paths Technique. The chakra usage depends on the size of the creature being summoned. Fine uses 1/per creature, diminutive uses 2/per creature, tiny uses 3/per creature, small uses 15/per creature, medium uses 25/per creature, large uses 50/per creature, huge uses 100/per creature, gargantuan uses 200/per creature, colossal uses 300/per creature, and anything larger uses 450/per creature. Summoned creatures remain for 10 rounds of combat, or for 1 day of average activities. When using the Animal Path the caster is also capable of summoning party members and his other Paths. Party members work the same way as any creature, while other Paths use half of the chakra points of their size class(rounded down).|
|Petra Path||13||N/A||Any non-physical attack can be absorbed. If the caster is attacked he gets to automatically attempt to absorb it. He must roll the same amount of dice as the attack damage roll and get higher than the attacker’s score. For example, if a magic missile is cast, the user rolls a 1d4+1 for damage, the Petra Path then must roll a 1d4+1 and get a higher score than the caster of the magic missile. If rolls match then it counts as a successful absorption. If the absorption is failed then the Petra Path must take an extra 1d6 of damage for every point short. If succeeded then the user gains chakra points equal to half the absorbed damage. The Petra Path gains a +1 bonus to her counter rolls every level.|
|Nakara Path||15||150 per target||The jutsu "King of Hell" is learned. With this ability the caster is able to greatly heal others(X chakra + 3d10 + 1d10/every fourth lvl) and revive the other Paths. It also allows for interrogations where the victim must tell the truth. If the victim lies they must make a Fort save of 15 + caster Wisdom modifier + 1/2 the caster level(rounded up) or have their soul ripped out. The King of Hell isn't physically seen by any without the Rinnegan besides the victim(s), so should any death occur the character must make a sneak check DC 15, even in public, which makes it an ability that can be used more discretely than the Human Path's mind reading ability. May only interrogate as many as two individuals at a time, and all conversation takes place within the Path’s mind. The user must make and maintain physical contact with the person whose mind they're trying to read, and must beat victim’s Will save with a concentration check with a +1 bonus per level in order to incapacitate the victim. Should the caster succeed, the victim is incapacitated until the caster breaks physical contact or releases the victim.|
|Outer Path||18||All Chakra Points||Upon extreme cases when someone is killed, the caster can try to revive them. First the caster must make a concentration check DC 30 to see if they're capable of bringing back the member. Regardless of whether or not the check succeeds the caster then has to make a Fort saving throw DC 35. Should the Fort saving throw be failed, caster is reduced to 0 HP immediately and drained of all chakra. If both checks are passed, the target is revived and stabilized at 0 HP. The caster is left incredibly fatigued regardless of outcome.|
|Chibaku Tensei||20||250||Otherwise known as Planetary Devastation. The caster creates a small black ball, that then rises to roughly 350ft in the air above the caster and begins to exert an extreme gravitational pull on everything within about 750ft(with the exception of creatures Large and smaller, and the Paths themselves). It will rip and tear earth and sea alike, building itself up for 1d6 turns until it is a solid mass roughly 300ft in diameter. Once on the object’s surface however(should an individual ride debris up to the object) a creature must remain there until the attraction phase is over. Once the attraction phase is concluded, creatures Huge and smaller may choose to remain on the object’s surface or to jump and fall back to the earth. The fall distance will be about 50ft but due to the conflicting gravitational pulls no fall damage must be suffered. The object will remain in place until released by the caster, wherein it crumbles and falls back to the earth, or until the caster causes the object to fall back to the earth as a single large projectile, an improvised meteor. If underneath upon impact, creatures can take either 20d10, 15d8, 10d6, or 5d4 of damage, depending on how close to the center point of impact that creature is. If a creature is still on the meteor when it falls it suffers 20d10 of damage.|

Playing a Shinobi
Religion: A shinobi is taught to place his faith in his skills rather than in something intangible. A shinobi may consider himself a proponent of one of deity or another, but this would be unusual. Most shinobi are conscious of the gods without revering any.
Other Classes: Most other classes perceive the Shinobi as an incredible Sorcerer-Rogue cross, but Monks see them as either cheap mockeries of their devotion and abilities or more than worthy rivals.
Combat: See Above Paragraph.
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: Three very notable members 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".
Organizations: There are many Hidden Villages of shinobi. Hidden Leaf, Sand, Stone, Cloud, and Mist Villages, plus many more, smaller Hidden Villages.
Characters with ranks in Knowledge(Local) can research Shinobi to learn more about them. When a character makes a skill check, read or paraphrase the following, including information from lower DCs.
|5||Shinobi are quite effective combatants.|
|10||Shinobi can use a special energy in their body and create spell-like effects.|
|15||Shinobi can use the energy called chakra to boost their combat effectiveness to even godly levels.|
|20||Some Shinobi have very special eyes. The White allowing one to see almost anything. The Red granting one untold prowess in battle and even mythical abilities. The Purple... there is not much known. It is said only the God of Shinobi possessed it.|

EL 10: Naruto usually stays nice and quiet at his task. Or the ramen shop. Until someone saw fit to blame something on the PCs. Naruto then exchanges 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. When Naruto is subdued(20 hp or lower) he realizes an NPC set him up, apologizes to the PCs, 75% chance he takes out his frog wallet and pays the PCs 1d20 platinum each, and chases after the other NPC.
