Chapter 1: Dawn of the Gamer

Uzumaki Naruto yawned as he rose up from his bed and shook the cobwebs from his head. The blond then proceeded to wipe the crud from his eyes, waddled his way to the bathroom to take a shower and brush his teeth like clockwork. Soon after finishing Naruto picked up his clothes that consisted of a small white t-shirt, underwear, and a pair of orange shorts before putting them on and began making a simple breakfast before wondering what he should do today.

Today was Saturday and therefore meant that he didn't have school. It also meant he got to sleep in, which was always welcomed. Having just turned thirteen today Naruto realized it would be a day he knew that many would avoid him like the plague more so than usual. Being thirteen also meant that Naruto was in his final year in the ninja academy. When Naruto first thought of joining the academy and becoming a ninja, like most he thought he'd be learning awesome jutsu and going on missions to save damsels in distress or save a country from an evil ninja.

Such thoughts and hopes went flying out the window after the first week and it only got worse from there as the years rolled by. Like most orphans Naruto had been taught to read and write along with other basic needs to properly integrate into society. Though thanks to Naruto's hyperactive nature it took him longer to learn and perform such tasks and skills properly than most of the other orphans. Because of said hyperactivity, among a few other things, Naruto hated standing still and often skipped class to do some physical activity.

Because of this he was considered by most as a shoe in for the title of Dead Last when it was time to graduate by his peers and the teaching faculty. Some however doubted he would be able to graduate or become a ninja at all. Though if one were to ask Naruto he'd say he was the best ninja in the academy in a heartbeat.

"Ramen I love you but why must you take three minutes to make," the young boy whined as he stood in front of the microwave impatiently. Sipping on his milk carton as he did, though it tasted a little sour. Ramen had always been Naruto's favorite food for a few reasons. It tasted good, it was cheap and affordable, it was easy to make, he could eat it in several flavors, and it could be eaten for breakfast, lunch, and diner. The only thing he hated about it was the three minutes it took to make it.

Though if he was honest with himself Naruto wondered what it would be like to try new dishes once in while. He loved ramen, no doubt about it, but variety was nice too… unless it involved veggies then forget about it.

"Stupid merchants," Naruto grumbled.

Truthfully one of the only reasons Naruto ate mostly ramen, other than his love for it, was the fact that many of the merchants in Konoha either wouldn't sell anything to him or try sell to him at a higher price. Ramen was cheap and affordable and was often sold in large bulk.

Luckily for Naruto some stores had friendly employees that sold him what he needed at a fair price. Though in most cases some would end up being fired and the cycle would start all over again. It was from one of these stores that Naruto found one of the only few pleasures in life that he could afford: video games.

Video games were still relatively new in this day and age, having only really started getting attention for the last decade and a half, but they were fun to play nonetheless. The most awesome of which, in Naruto's mind, were RPGs as it allowed you to become anyone. Currently Naruto only had four of them, mostly older editions as they were cheaper, all from two guys called Akira Toriyama and Yujii Horii*.

Video games were popular mostly to civilians and some of the younger ninja in the Elemental Countries. Reasons being that civilians had it much easier than ninja and could afford such leisurely pastimes. Ninja not as much as once an Academy Student graduated and became a Genin they had little time to relax, and during those times it was often used for training or socializing with friends and family they might not see again.

Naruto had little to no friends. Sure he hung out with a few of his classmates such as Shikamaru and Kiba from the academy when they skipped class but other than that video games were the only things he could call friends at the moment.

Ding!

"Finally!" Naruto whopped as he took out his cup of ramen and began to devour the food like a ravenous wolf once it cooled down a bit, taking sips from his milk in between. However, just he was finished did Naruto's stomach start to growl and protest.

"Uh? What the-" Naruto had little time to think before he felt a gut punching feeling in his stomach. Looking at the milk carton still in his hand Naruto's eyes bulged as he found the culprit of his dilemma.

"Expiration date September 30th… That's almost two weeks ago!" Naruto shouted/groaned before he shuffled as fast as he could to the bathroom, hoping to make it to the toilet seat in time.

"Stupid asshole merchants!" Naruto groaned uncomfortably, it wasn't the first time that someone sold him expired food. Though in hindsight Naruto knew he should have read the expiration date first.

A couple of hours passed as Naruto's body purged itself from the expired milk before he felt capable of leaving the toilet. "Oh, god that was hell." Naruto gasped as he poured water into the sink to wipe his face with. Finishing Naruto grabbed a towel and wiped his face dry before he saw an unusual sight in the mirror.

"… Eh?" Naruto blinked in confusion. In the mirror above his head in blue letters was the oddest thing in the world.

"Uzumaki Naruto - Academy Student – Lv 3"

"Oooookkkkk," Naruto drawled, "Now the milk is screwing with my mind," he nodded thinking it was just a combination of his mind screwing with him and the expired milk.

"Next thing you know I'll have my own Status Window," he chuckled though it didn't last long.

Naruto's mouth was agape in disbelief as he saw the status window. Before he could begin to freak out Naruto suddenly found himself calming down and thinking logically.

"Ok, that just happened. What's the hell's going on?"


"Do you wish to view the Help Guide?"

(YES/NO)


"Ok, I've had enough of this crap! It was funny at first now it's just plain creepy. Kai (Release)!"

"Ok, now time to… oh you're freaking kidding me, Kai!"

The concept of trying to get out of Genjutsu was still fairly new to him, to the whole class

really except those from clans, having only just learned about it nine days ago. So when the illusion hadn't gone away on the first time Naruto had simply attempted it once more with more power than before.

"The hell! Kai!" Naruto grunted out.


"Do you wish to view the Help Guide?"

(YES/NO)


Naruto cocked an eyebrow as a blue box suddenly appeared before him once more. Naruto was seriously starting to doubt this was a Genjutsu. Sure Iruka-sensei had said something about some being very elaborate and difficult to get out of but even this was pushing it. Who the hell would make a video game Genjutsu?

"Now that I think about it. Iruka-sensei did say that Genjutsu were meant to harm or psyc…psy… argh, attack your brain and make you feel bad or whatever," it was about one of the only things he really learned in that class as he along with a few others had fallen asleep during the lecture.

As far as he could tell the Genjutsu wasn't hurting him or make him relive bad memories like they were supposed to. Looking back up at the message that still floated in the air Naruto cocked an eyebrow.

"What is this anyway, an RPG?" he wondered out loud before he answered, "…Yes?" Naruto said after a moment's hesitation, thinking it might trigger something bad, before the screen shined and flickered out of existence only to be replaced with another that revealed more information.

"Hmm… ok not a Genjutsu. Alright, says here everything is activated by voice and touch command. That's convenient," Naruto mused as he continued browsing the Help Guide; his hesitation and caution slowly going away.

"Alright let's take her for a test spin," he grinned, "Skill List Window open!"

"Cool," Naruto couldn't help but admire it all.

"Gamer's Mind and Gamer's Body huh? Guess that explains why I started thinking straight instead of having a meltdown… still weird as hell though that I'm able to view the world like it's a video game. Wonder if it's a Bloodline Limit or something?"

That last comment made him think. Part of him wondered if he should go and see Hokage-jiji to see if he could help with this. However, the other part wanted him to keep it a secret. It wasn't as if he could prove it and knowing the Old Man he would have someone keep an eye on him to make sure he was alright.

As much as the Old Man liked him telling him he had a video game based Bloodline Limit would force the Sandaime to potentially have to take drastic measures. We wouldn't want to but what choice would he have if he said something this crazy. Without proof to show it was best he kept it a secret till he found a way. Sure pranks were one thing but claiming you had a video Bloodline Limit was very different.

"Guess I should keep this on the down low till I figure this out," Naruto had no intention of potentially spending his life in a nuthouse.

For thinking things through in a rational manner your WIS has gone up by 1!

"… I can increase my stats by doing stuff like that? Sweet!" Naruto whooped. "Ok, lets see what else I can do to bring my stats up… Huh, attributes. Ok, open!"


Your attributes determine your strengths and weaknesses. The most common way for your attributes to increase is by leveling up. Doing this increases your attributes by a small margin. Another way to increase your attributes is by training or performing certain tasks. An example would be physical training which depending on what is being done will increase your Vitality, Dexterity, and Strength. Currently, there are three training categories.

Chakra Enhancement Training:

A training method that increases your chakra, control, and potency of chakra based techniques.

Physical Enhancement Training:

A training method that increases your body's physical capabilities.

Mental Enhancement Training:

A training method that increases your mental faculties.

"Ok, makes sense," Naruto nodded it was pretty straight forward as far as explanations went, unlike Iruka-sensei's lectures. "Ok, so what do attributes affect?"


Attributes

Strength (STR):

The Strength attribute determines the person's overall physical power. This attribute affects the amount of damage a person can inflict on another with Taijutsu, Kenjutsu, bladed, or blunt objects. It also affects a person's ability to reduce damage when blocking and affects the amount of weight they can lift, or throw.

Vitality (VIT):

The Vitality attribute determines the person's overall health. This attribute also affects a person's ability to regain health outside of combat and resist specials types of damage from things such as poison, chakra draining, paralysis, burns, etc.

1 VIT = 25 HP

1 VIT = .5 HP REGEN

Dexterity (DEX)

The Dexterity attribute determines the person's overall movement. This attribute affects a person's accuracy, evasion, speed, and ability to land critical strikes on an opponent in close, mid, and long range combat. Dexterity also plays a major role in pick pocking, stealth, use of weaponry and the ability to dual wielding weaponry properly.

Intelligence (INT):

The Intelligence attribute determines the person's overall ability to think quickly and innovation. This attribute affects the strength of their chakra, how much they have, and how fast they can recover their chakra out of battle. It also affects the strength of a person's natural affinity, ability on creating variations, and a technique's overall power.

1 INT = 25 CP

1 INT = .5 CP REGEN

Wisdom (WIS):

The wisdom attribute determines the person's common sense, perception, overall control of their chakra. It also affects their ability to learn, memorize, retain information, and determines how smart they are. Wisdom also plays an important role in learning certain skills such as Genjutsu and Medical Ninjutsu as well as defending from mental attacks.

For every 20 points of WIS the experience points gained increases by a %. In some cases WIS needs to be higher or lower for it to occur depending on the status they have.

Luck (LUK):

The Luck attribute determines the person's overall chance. Luck is unique compared to all the other attributes as it is capable of influencing anything from finding or looting random items, winning money while gambling, to encounters and outstanding successes/failures (such as critical hits).


"Huh? A little different than what I expected. Yosh! Let's take this for a test drive," Naruto nodded before heading out the door. Carefully and silently leaving the building so as to not disturb the old man who ran the place. He was a decent guy, if somewhat cranky, but hated it when people made loud noises. More than once he kicked out a few people for that fact alone.

Naruto had almost gotten himself kicked out too but guessed that the fact that he was an orphan and was close to the Sandaime had left him off with a warning instead. Even then the man kept a watchful eye on him.

"Senile old fart," Naruto muttered.

"I heard that, brat!" the old man shouted from his room causing Naruto to flee like a bat out of hell.

"How the freaking hell does he bloody do that, dattebayo?" the old man's hearing never seized to amaze and scare him. Naruto guessed the man either had wires all over the place or he was an ex ninja.

"Ok, let's see if anything interesting happens," Naruto muttered to himself before spotting a couple of familiar individuals. "What the?"

Nara Shikamaru – Nara Heir - Lv 7

Akimichi Chouji – Akimichi Heir – Lv 6

"Come on, Shikamaru. They're serving at half price for today only!" Chouji spoke

between the chips he ate to his best friend about his favorite eating spot."

"Troublesome," Shikamaru sighed, "You do know that they open at 11:30 right? It's still only 10:56."

"Yeah, but I heard some of my family are going to be there and I wanna be first in line to get in before they do," Chouji countered before began to drag Shikamaru, who barely or didn't bother to resist being pulled, to the restaurant. When it came to Akimichi and their love of food nothing stood in their way, unless they wanted to be missing a limb or too.

"Ok, so it's not just me who has a floating textbox above their head. Guess it's not a Genjutsu," Naruto told himself. Even if it was it wasn't doing anything to warm him so why bother fighting it.

Walking around the village Naruto continued to observe the villagers. From what he saw most of the civilians had levels ranging from 5 to 10 at best while ninja, with the exception of academy students, were a heck of a lot higher. From what he saw most of the Chunin had levels of 20 and 30, while Tokubetsu Jonin he saw had "?" while Jounin also had "?", some Jounin he saw had a golden leaf background on their names.

"I guess the "?" question mark means their levels are too high to see and the ones with the golden leaf means they're elites," Naruto pondered. He had seen this before during his video games and guessed the same concept applied here.

Question marks instead of a number meant the level was out of his league, while a background or symbols around the name meant they were not only high level individuals but much, much stronger than those with the same level. In short it meant don't screw with those guys until you were at least close to their level or had a large and skilled enough group to help you.

A special skill has been created through a special act.

"What?"

Through continuous observation of others in order to find out more about them the passive/active ability "Observe" has been created.

"Really? Yatta, dattebayo!" Naruto cheered suddenly, much to the confusion of some onlookers and much to his embarrassment when he realized he made a fool of himself in front of a crowd.

"Note to self, be more discreet," Naruto thought as he left for a more secluded area of Konoha. "Ok, let's see what we got here. Open Skill List… ah here we go."

Observe: Lv1. Next Lv 0/75. This skill allows the user to see the target's max HP, max CP.

"Hmm, basic, simple, and useful," Naruto noted. Looking around to see if there was anything he could use this ability on the young blond spotted a small creature.

"Here goes nothing. Observe."

Brown Rabbit – Forest Creature – Lv 1. NC

"NC? What's that?" Naruto had never heard of the term or seen it video games before. Though he didn't have to wait long before his answer popped up.


NC "Non-Combatant"

NCs are creatures or individuals with no fighting skill or little worth. As such, they will not offer you any experience points. They serve little purpose. NC creatures however if defeated or killed will drop useful items such as meat or fur that can be used or sold. Doing this to NC civilians, however, will have serious consequences.


"Well there goes that grinding idea," Naruto grumbled at the loss of easily leveling up. Sure the meat and fur sounded good, it would give him something else to eat and potentially bring in extra cash if he managed to find someone to buy them off him. But what was the point if you weren't going to get any experience points out of it.

"Crap, I also have to learn how to cook rabbit meat," Naruto wasn't the sharpest kunai in the pouch, but even he knew, thanks to Teuchi and Ayame, that meat from different animals was not supposed to be cooked the same way. Ayame said you technically could but it wouldn't taste anywhere as good or you'd get very sick.

"Ah, forget it. I don't have time to waste learning how to cook that stuff," he had a hard time learning about what was going on in the academy. He didn't need the extra hassle.

"Ok, let's what else I can do this on," Naruto thought just as he spotted the perfect candidate.

"Observe."


Umino Iruka – Ninja Academy Teacher - Lv 21

HP: 1450 CP: 900

Observe skill has leveled up! You can now see more information and can use this on inanimate objects.


"So it levels up the more I use it. Let's see it now," he spoke softly as he opened his skill list once more.

Observe: Lv2. Next Lv 20/150. This skill allows the user to see the target's max HP, max CP, and some information. Can now also be used on items such as weapons, armorThe more you level up the more information you can see. Individuals with huge levels gaps will have a question mark instead of a number, this will only go away when you have gained a decent amount of level.

"So it lets me see more info now. That's useful. Observe," Naruto whispered as he looked at Iruka once more.


Umino Iruka – Ninja Academy Teacher – Lv 21

HP: 1450 CP: 900

Description: Umino Iruka is a dedicate Ninja Academy Instructor who hopes of passing on his wisdom to the next generation of ninja. Is also known as one of the only Chunin in Konoha who can catch Uzumaki Naruto through as of yet unknown means.


Naruto's eye began to twitch as he read that last part of the description. Though he didn't like to admit it, it was true really. Most of the time when he pulled a prank the ninja who were sent to retrieve him were Chunin, which he more often then not managed to escape from. Sometimes the occasional Jounin would be sent to which he learned early on he was screwed. But whenever Iruka was sent his tactics didn't really work that well.

"How the hell does he do it?" Naruto wondered.


[QUEST ALERT!]

How Does He Bloody Do It?

Main Quest: Learn how Umino Iruka manages to catch you every time you've pulled a prank.

Side Quest: Don't let Iruka figure out what you're doing.

Main Quest Completion: 250 Exp.

Side Quest Completion: 50 Exp.

Failure: 50 Exp

Accept? (Yes/No)


"Hmm, sounds good but I'd better look more into this. Help Guide," Naruto called before locating what he was looking for. Just because it was similar to how video game quests did it didn't mean it followed the same rules.

For not rushing to complete a quest and thinking things through your WIS has increased by 1.

"Sweet!"


Quests

Quests, sometimes called missions, are tasks given to players by others or appear spontaneously. Completing a quest or mission will result in rewards such as experience points, items and money. Most quests can be accepted or declined while others are mandatory and most be complete in order to proceed.

Sometimes a side quest will be giving alongside the main one, these are purely optional but completing them gives a boost of rewards. Some quests will allow you an unlimited amount of time to complete it while others need to be completed before a specific time and/or day or risk quest failure. A variation of a side quest known as hidden objectives will sometimes be posted, what these objectives are you needed to figure out on your own.

Completion of quests also boosts one's reputation with the affiliated village, person or faction by a certain amount though sometimes it can decrease the reputation of something else such as an enemy village. Depending on the quest failure to complete it can result in penalties such as no rewards, negative reputation gain, lower experience points gained, the crippling injury status, or even death.


Thinking nothing of it Naruto pressed on the "yes" button to accept the quest. The quests were pretty much the same as the video games he had. Though the side quest was somewhat new, still the extra rewards and exp were fine in his books.

Naruto also considered himself lucky really. This wasn't the first time he had spied on Iruka-sensei before. Iruka himself had fallen victim to a few of his pranks in the past with the only times he ever did get caught by the man was when he was actively looking for him after a prank, otherwise he was almost invisible to him.

Seeing him leave the store he was currently in Naruto began following the academy instructor from a good distance. Not too close that it would arouse suspicion but not too far that he would loose him sight of in the crowd, or if he made a turn somewhere he could not see him.

Seeing him enter another store, one where he wasn't exactly welcomed, Naruto decided to wait for him outside before he continued his quest. "Might as well see what else this Guide Book has in it."

Finding a an empty bench Naruto whispered the voice command and proceeded to look through the Guide Book for anything interesting, "Ok, let's see what else we got here. Ah, inventory!"


Inventory Box:

The inventory box, a personal space-time technique, is where the items you are currently holding go to when not in use. This allows you to store a near infinite amount of items without having to carry them on your person and hamper your movement with the excess weight. To place an item inside just press it on the screen and vice versa when you want to pull it out.

Note: Certain things cannot be placed in the inventory box such as a camp fire or living beings.


"That makes things easy," Naruto thought before moving on.

The idea of not having to carry everything on him yet have everything he needed when he wanted it was a great thing to have. Though part of him thought it was a bit of overkill and unfair to others Naruto immediately squashed that thought. He was a ninja in training damn it! Their whole lifestyle was about being unfair, fighting dirty and not caring if they cheated. They weren't training to be samurai.

"Item Quality," he called out next.


Item Quality:

Simply put, item quality is a relative indicator of how good an item is compared to another. The quality indicator is most often seen with a rank beside the name of the item. There are six types of item qualities in the world.

Note: The higher the quality the greater the requirements needed to use it properly before being able to master it, not in all cases, however.

Poor Quality:

Items that are considered the worst of the worst and barely even worth using, seen as junk by many. Such items are made of shady materials, poor craftsmanship has rusted over or been worn down so badly that it can no longer be used properly.

Common Quality:

These are common items of decent quality that many use every day. Most items that fit into this category are basic kunai, shuriken, and some other forms of weaponry and armor.

Uncommon Quality:

These are the uncommon items, not everyone has them but have frequent enough usage. Most items that fit into this category are sealing scrolls, weaponry and items that can be used for making other things such as clothing, medicine or weapons.

Rare Quality:

These are the rare uncommon items. Items of this quality are either difficult or somewhat expensive to come by. Most usually grant a unique ability or a great stat booster for the user. Are made from materials that are difficult to acquire or buy, or require a great level of skill to create.

Epic Quality:

These items are considered one of the rarest of the rare. Items of this quality are extremely difficult to come by and create, sometimes they can be considered one of a kind and irreplaceable. Items that can be considered a part of this category are some of the swords of the Seven Swordsmen or scrolls that contain dangerous or powerful A-S rank jutsu from any style.

Legendary Quality:

These unique items are considered legendary in terms of power and one of a kind ability they possess or are capable of granting individuals or other items, many of these being one of a kind. Chances of coming across items of this quality are one million to one only those with incredible levels of luck are said to be able to find these. If you own one many will call you a lucky bastard. Items that are considered to fall under this category are masterpieces or items used by legendary and ancient craftsmen or figures such as the Rikudo Sennin, Gorō Nyūdō Masamune, Uchiha Madara, Senju Hashirama, Senju Tobirama etc. Some of these items possess sentience and will only allow specific individuals to wield or summon them.


"Huh, lets see," Naruto thought as he took out a spare kunai from his pocket he had taken from the academy. "Observe"

Academy Kunai – Poor Quality

A poor excuse for a kunai. The weight and sharpness of the kunai leave much to be desired. The blade is so dull that piercing or cutting something with it will be very difficult while the uneven weight of it lowers your chances of hitting your target.

Attack Power: 3-5

Accuracy: -20%

"THE HELL!" Naruto shouted and cursed himself as he did before vacating his spot and jumped onto the roof of the store to hide. No sooner did he leave did Iruka come out of the store, and from the way his head was moving in every direction did Naruto guess he was looking for him.

"Strange? I could have sworn I heard Naruto," he heard his teacher mutter to himself. Shrugging his shoulders Iruka left the store and continued on his way.

"That was close," Naruto thanked whatever deity was looking out for him at the moment.

"Whatcha doing, gaki?" a voice suddenly spoke from behind him.

"Bhwwammmmmm," Naruto tried to scream only to have his mouth covered by

someone's hand.

"Rule number one about stealth, gaki; no screaming when following someone. Kinda defeats the purpose of the whole thing," the purple haired and scantily clad woman informed him.

Muttering "Observe" on her as low as he could Naruto was shocked by the result.

Anko Mitarashi – T&I Specialist – Lv ?

"Shit!" Naruto cursed his luck at the moment. It was easy to see that she was strong, easily way out of his league, and the fact that snuck up on him without him noticing only scared him even more.

"So again, whatcha doing following Umino, gaki?" Anko repeated.

"Um, trying to find out how he keeps finding me?" Naruto hesitated. He knew from experience that lying to Jounin wasn't a good idea; most knew when he was lying and often called him out on his bullshit.

For her part Anko only blinked before she grinned and laughed a bit, "That's it? Oh that's a good one."

Seeing him glare at her Anko realized he wasn't kidding, "Uh… really? Wow, you're serious aren't you? Yeah, not to bust your balls or anything, kid, but how the hell is following him around gonna get you the answer? You think he's just gonna talk about it willy nilly?"

"Uhhhhh," Naruto just realized he hadn't thought of that. "… Crap."

"Yeah… No offense, gaki, but you suck at information gathering. There are other ways, effective ones too, of getting information on someone other than following them. The fact that you weren't exactly being discreet allowed a few of us to see what you were doing from a mile away," she pointed out. "Hell some of us know when you're gonna do a prank."

"Bullshit! If that's true why don't your stop me?" he called her bluff.

"It gives us a good laugh watching those Chunin struggle to catch you, especially when they run into a few of your traps along the way," she grinned. "Besides it's fun to see them being brought down a notch. Quite a few of them think they're tough shit just because they made Chunin."

Naruto couldn't believe, and was having a hard time believing it, that some people actually liked his pranks. Seriously, most people hated him for his pranks, especially the victims.

"Just a heads up though, prank us and you'll be wishing for death, if not begging for it, got it?" her sadistic grin returned with a vengeance. One that made Naruto sweat and nod furiously. "Ok, we're good then, gaki," she patted and ruffled his head.

For agreeing with Anko on not pranking her or her friends your reputation with her has increased by 100.

"That's convenient," Naruto thought. "Um, I don't suppose you'll help me then?"

Anko merely cocked an eyebrow before placing her hands on her hips, "And why would I wanna help you? What's in it for me?"

"Um, what do you want?" Naruto asked.

"What can you offer me?"

"Uhh, want me to prank someone for you?" even as he said it Naruto was thinking along the lines of, "Nice move genius. Real smooth."

"Hmm, alright. But in exchange you owe me three pranks. No ifs or buts and no fuss. This is a take it or leave it deal; what do you say?" Anko offered.

Knowing that it was probably as good as this was gonna get, Naruto agreed. "Deal."

A special skill has been created through a special act.

Through the art careful and successful exchange of services with another the passive ability "Bartering" has been created.

Naruto forced himself not to drop his jaw at the sudden gain of an ability before focusing once more on Anko, "But can I add one thing? I don't want Iruka-sensei to know what

I'm up to."

Anko merely shrugged, "Meh, I'm cool with that. You got yourself a deal, gaki. Wait right here while the Incredibly Sexy Anko Mitarashi does her thing."

With that Anko jumped off the building and began her pursuit of Iruka. Naruto thinking he had time to kill decided to look at his newly acquired skill.

Bartering. Lv1. Next Lv 0/75. This skill allows the user to successfully barter with others in order to acquire certain services or information. Such things include the buying and selling of items, the exchange of information, or others, the higher the level of this skill the greater the success and rewards.

Note: Your wisdom and reputation with individuals, and their rank, will play a big role in the success of bartering.

Buying and selling price bonus are currently 5%

Increases your persuasion by 10%

"Uh, gaki," Naruto say Anko poking her head up the side of the building a sheepish look adorned on her face, "You wouldn't by chance know which way he went … would ya?"

Naruto gave her a deadpan look before pointing in the direction Iruka was last seen.

"Maybe this wasn't such a good idea after all," he thought before going back to his Guide Book.


Challenges

Challenges are a set of specific tasks that are accomplished by the user. However, unlike quests, which give EXP and rewards, challenges only award experience points. Most challenges involve killing many of the same type of enemy, creating variations of a technique, mastering a set of techniques from a specific rank, etc. Other challenges are based around discovering hidden areas, hidden caches, looting enemies, traveling, and your own profession.

Note: Challenges are only available once you reach level 15 and some challenges can only be done as you level up or accomplish certain tasks.


"Ah, crap," Naruto hated when stuff like this happened. With him currently being at level 3, which was bullshit in his mind, it would take him quite a while before he reached level 15. Luckily he read that he only had to reach level 5 before he could start grinding in dungeons to gain experience points. As Anko still had yet to come back Naruto decided to look at any else that was useful for him to learn.


Mastered Condition

Mastering a technique takes time and dedication but is very beneficial for the user. Not only does it allow one to not only spend less time preparing a technique but also allows you to create your own variants of the technique. Mastering certain techniques will add a bonus stat, unlock a hidden function, drastically reduce the cost of chakra needed, or increase the strength or duration of it.

Keep in mind that the higher the rank of the technique the harder and longer it is to master. Additionally some techniques can be mastered but variations can't be created or will be more difficult to master due to higher power and requirements needed.


Naruto was interrupted from his thoughts as a series of shuriken came sailing at him, though he managed to dodge a few several of them still managed to cut his clothes and gave him a few cuts. It didn't stop there however as Naruto soon felt the unforgiving cold iron pressed against his neck, threatening to slice and spill his blood all over himself and the roof he was one.

"Lesson number two about stealth, gaki: always be aware of your surroundings. You never know when someone else is sneaking up on you while you try to sneak up on someone," the familiar voice of Anko rang in his ears before the kunai she had at his neck was removed.

Naruto had realized then and there that it was twice that Anko could have killed him if she so wished.

Twice she could have killed him without him realizing it. Naruto wasn't as dumb as many thought him to be, he knew that Jounin were skilled, as evidence when they managed to catch him in the past, but if this was the skill of a Jounin it made him realize that as he was in need of some serious grinding.

"Oh, and the reason why Umino was able to find you is because he's one of the few ninja in Konoha that are sensors," Anko informed him.


[QUEST COMPLETED!]

How Does He Bloody Do It?

Main Quest: Learn how Umino Iruka manages to catch you every time you've pulled a prank. (Accomplished)

Total Rewards Earned: 300 Exp


Naruto had to stop himself from jumping up and down at the completion of a quest, sure he hadn't gained a level yet but he was half way there.

"…You really need to stop spacing out like that, gaki. It's creepy, even for me," Naruto heard Anko say and before he could ask her what a sensor ninja was the woman had disappeared somewhere. Where she once stood was a kunai with a message.

"Don't forget, gaki, you owe me three pranks. And if you try to weasel your way out, well, you'll see," Naruto gulped before noticing another line, "PS. This message will self-destruct in 20 seconds … WHAT!" Naruto screamed but was too late to evade the explosion that enveloped him.

When the dust finally cleared Naruto found himself covered head to toe in girly pink paint. When he finally managed to get home, after passing by a still laughing land owner, Naruto began washing the texture off him before he spotted the kanji for "Anko's little bitch" marked on his face.

"This means war! Nobody pranks the Prank King and gets away with it damn it!" Naruto vowed, all the while not knowing that Anko heard every word.

"Challenge accepted, gaki," she smirked.
