**Stats**

Stats are what set the guidelines for how you character should respond when RPing. There are eight distinctive stats a character has: Stamina, Speed, Strength, Intelligence, Chakra Control, Ninjutsu, Taijutsu, and Genjutsu.

Speed- how fast you are

Strength- how strong you are

Stamina- long you can last in battle

Intelligence- how cunning you are

Chakra Control- how quickly you can perform jutsus

Ninjutsu- how skilled you are in ninjutsu

Taijutsu- how skilled you are in taijutsu

Genjutsu- how skilled you are in genjutsu

Keep in mind that these are only very general guidelines to a character's skill

Each ninja rank has a certain amount of points to put into these stats.

**Stat Totals**

Genin- 13

Chuunin- 16

Special Jounin- 19

Jounin- 22

Sannin- 26

Kage- 31

Each stat has a maximum of 5 points that can be put into it, and can be increased by increments of 1

The Ninjutsu, Taijutsu, and Genjutsu stats are important for determining what rank of jutsus you can learn in each category.

D-ranks require a rating of 1 or higher

C-ranks require a rating of 2 or higher

B-ranks require a rating of 3 or higher

A-ranks require a rating of 4 or higher

S-ranks require a rating of 5

So, if you have a Ninjutsu rating of 5, a Taijutsu rating of 3, and a Genjutsu rating of 1, you can learn up to S-rank Ninjutsu, B-rank Taijutsu, and D-rank Genjutsu.

A guide to dealing with Genjutsu in RP situations:

When one character performs a Genjutsu on another character, the minimum amount of posts that the victim will be held under the illusion is equal to the difference between the caster and victim's overall Genjutsu Rating, which is determined by each character's Genjutsu stat added to their Intelligence stat, rounded down.

Example:

Ninja A has a Genjutsu stat of 4 and an Intelligence of 3. His overall Genjutsu Rating is 7

Ninja B has a Genjutsu stat of 1 and an Intelligence of 2. His overall Genjutsu Rating is 3

If Ninja A casts a Genjutsu on Ninja B, then the illusion will hold for a minimum of 4 posts until Ninja B is able to dispel it.

Note: There can be no negative posts an illusion can hold, since obviously that wouldn't make sense. If a difference in Genjutsu Ratings comes out to a negative number, then it is automatically changed to 1, where the victim may dispel the illusion at the end of the first post, with little to no negative effects.

A note on Chakra Control:

Those with a Chakra Control value of 5 may perform one-handed signs for any and all jutsus that require hand signs. Anyone with 0 Chakra Control may not use any jutsu requiring chakra.
