"Right and wrong are not what separate us and our enemies. It's our different standpoints, our perspectives that separate us. Both sides blame one another. There's no good or bad side. Just two sides holding different views." THE STORY After the Fourth Ninja War the world, it changed… The good feelings and newfound unity led the world to unite under one banner. The Kage's formed a high council to govern all the countries. They make decisions as a group instead of as individuals. For 130 years the peace of the Kage High Council prospers. However enlightenment is upon civilization. The world has been peaceful; poverty and starvation are at an all-time low as the world reaches heights of never before seen posterity. But there is one prevailing thought that has climbed into the social consciousness. Are the Kage’s representatives of the people if the people did not choose them? A social revolution consisting of those malcontent with their lack of say in the government begins in order to reorganize the politics of the High Kage Council. The first stone is cast when Iwakagure attempts to crush the new political movement by colonizing three neighboring villages that are in favor of change, Kusakagure, Ishikagure, and Amekagure. However there are some in Iwakagure who are in support of democracy, a separatist movement, and they conspire with the oppressed villages to annex a portion of Iwakagure. This alliance becomes one village, Fuzenkagure. This is the first domino in the schism. Elsewhere some of the Kage’s decide to step down out of respect for their people’s wishes. These smaller nations band together and essentially form a separate ninja nation. The Black. The Kage High Council responds by consolidating its power and forming the White. It has been 20 years since the formation of the Black and the White. Tension is at an all time high between them as the Tsuchikage's recent Invasion of Fuzengakure has put both sides closer to the brink of war than they have ever been before. It is not just the machinations of the Tsuchikage, the other three totems of the world have begun to make their moves as well. NEW MEMBERS ARE MORE THAN WELCOME TO JOIN.
