Naruto World is a persistent world driven by the actions of players and events supervised by the staff. As it is a continuous game, without a predetermined sequence of storyline events, actions taken by players and their characters can have a very real, significant impact on the future of the setting. Although this game is based off of the anime and manga series Naruto, it does not follow the anime/manga exactly and very little to no familiarity with them is needed to play and enjoy the game.
The game is not finished, but it is released. This means that although the game is available for play, it will continue to be updated on a regular basis as things are balanced and added. Think of it as an open beta.
There will be no restarts (full wipes of all existing characters, forcing everyone to start over again) except in extreme cases. However, keep in mind that character death is a very real possibility, and there may be drastic changes in the rules as the game goes on.
