I don't know about using a deck of cards in manner similar to Kekki-genkai per-say but its entirely possible to use them in place of fuudo. Instead of using the oh so obvious explosive seal, make one and then hide it by making it look like a poker card, which do you think is more dangerous? The explosive seal you can see or the one you can't? The answer is obvious.

Pokerchips could be used as tracking devices, they are small enough to go un-noticed and can be slipped into a pocket without much fuss.

The cards could also be used in the same manner as a sealing scroll, one item only storage but from a single pack that's 52 items, not too shabby and even easier to carry. On top of that, if you are captured the enemy won't think much about a deck of cards... unless your prone to using said cards in battle a lot.

Dice could also be bombs (flash/bangs sound very good).

Just saying they would give Naruto a little flare like he likes but they wouldn't be the end all supplies for him to use, there is no substitute for a good kunai or sword that you could get from these items.

Actually... I had a thought along a similar vein.

Concealed seals, but for different purposes.

You have cards that go boom, others that slice, maybe even a few that store things. Of course to keep the focus off of the deck of cards, Naruto carries the usual complement of kunai and shuriken as well as a detractable bo staff.

I also liked the idea of cards replacing certain jutsu to help Naruto pass his genin exam. I've seen a fic where Naruto could draw seals on his body to do this. Of course the seals were one time use unless actually tatooed to his body, but that is neither here nor there.

Another use for the dice would be bullets, similar to Sniper in YYH.

Perhaps make Naruto a cross between Gambit (X-Men) and Sniper (YYH)?

If he's going to be dependant on cards, which I would suggest against, then some would have to be usefull for close range. The problem with cards is that this isn't supposed to be about Naruto and cards. This is supposed to be Naruto the gamber-nin. All I've seen so far are the obvious solution. Things that have been done before. It has little to do with gambling or luck.

Someone...I think it's Cyrus II? is working on one where Naruto passed the gennin exam by using seals on cards to create bunshin... *checks* Yeah, Cutting the Deck, first chapter here, second chapter here.

As for Kakashi/Sakura, the main thing I have against such stories is that Naruto isn't the main character. If it's just off to the side of the main story, I don't really care...it'd be hypocritcal of me in the extreme for me to, anyways, given that I like the Naruto/Tsunade pairing, the Naruto/Anko pairing, and several others...and, sometime, I'd like to see a Naruto/Moegi pairing for some reason...I blame Alpha T Sigma.

Back on topic...anyone else envisioning Naruto creating some sort of jutsu that's like those big gates Orochimaru used for defense ewhen he was fighting four-tail Naruto, except they're giant Roulette Wheels? :snigger:

And it's 'retractable'...not 'detractable'... :sweat2:

I saw a story of FF.net with the same name. I couldn't even make it through the first chapter cause of the cliches(I especially can't stand mobs chasing young Naruto openly accusing him of Kyuubi's crimes. If that actually happened the mob would then be fried in a Hokage powered fire dragon), but the original concept can be awsome if done right.

I know the idea of Gambit Naruto has been touched upon a number of times on this board, adding in more casino themed attacks would be interesting. Maybe give him a fighting style like that gard guy from Hellsing(Can't remember his name.) And the whole idea if a ninja who puts everything to random chance, and pulls it off, would be a huge slap to Neji's face.

Besides, the world needs more stories with Narutos who, as Fosfor put it:

There were, however, ways to catch the attention of Fortune and make her smile on you, if you had enough skill. If you had the skill, the instinct and courage bordering on insanity, you didn't just get her to smile at you, but to actually have her lips touch yours with passion and blessing.

Naruto had the skills, the instinct, the power and courage that went past borders ordinary people called sanity a long time ago. He wasn't willing to settle for a smile or a kiss - he was going to have Lady Luck naked, eager and moaning his name tonight.
From Reload chapter 6.
I recommend that you read it. It contains Suprise Anko buttsex.

The name of that fic would be Naruto: The Gambler. No linkies though.

That's why dice and poker ships were also suggested as possible nin tools.

Also the 'retractable' bo staff would be good for short to mid range adveraries.

Just tell me WHERE I can find it then, don't be so damn vague. The rules basically say we can't LINK to it but it never said anywhere about not telling us where to find it.

Well what can I say? :snigger: On that topic though, right now I got a few ideas in my head for some original fiction, problem is I can't write very well. Think I should still try? I would knowing I would have some help here and there. One fic is SI (don't :sick3: ) its actually worked out very well in my notes, original ideas, interesting plotline, compelling characters from other anime, SI's with actual FLAWS... I just can't ever get around to writing it! :headbanger: :headbanger: The second however you guys might find even more interesting a Tsukihime/Pokegirl fic, it works so well it scares me. I've already had a LOT of help from Toraneko on that one, its a collaboration of my creative insanity and his logical [in]sanity to work out the kinks.

If ya want to know more about them I'm more than happy to share.

Why a Bo staff? I mean... i could see it if he somehow got the contract for monkeys, that would be very fitting then but..... :blink: BRILLIANT!! Instead of stupid toads have Naruto get to sign a contract with the monkeys! Not the most original sure but then how often do we see that very thing pulled off? We don't, that's what! ARGGHHH!! Its right right there and we never thought of it. Come on, think about it, Sarutobi could have at the very least done THAT for Naruto as a birthday present or something, I could even see him forgetting about it until some years later when he's going to sign the Toad contract and instead of allowing him to sign it it reacts... negatively. :evil: Who would have suspected anyways? No one! Hah, I'd ove to see the look on Orochi-teme's face when Naruto summons Emma to fight with him, boy is that monkey going to be PISSED.

As for Kakashi/Sakura, the main thing I have against such stories is that Naruto isn't the main character. If it's just off to the side of the main story, I don't really care...it'd be hypocritcal of me in the extreme for me to, anyways, given that I like the Naruto/Tsunade pairing, the Naruto/Anko pairing, and several others...and, sometime, I'd like to see a Naruto/Moegi pairing for some reason...I blame Alpha T Sigma.
I know how ya feel... concerning the story not focusing on Naruto, what's this about Moegi? Link or GTFO!!

I don't think he should depend on cards either, but having a "Gambling theme" would be pretty cool I think. On the one hand he's always quoting sayings like "Life all one big game, battle is like that too. Only what's at stake is much more important- your life." or the like.

So to some it up Bullshiter!Naruto, can bullshit his way threw anything can bluff with the best of them and even (as a character flaw) willing to gamble just about everything and/or EVERYONE to win. The one who steps toward the blade instead of evading it - thus negating most of its momentum and more than likely catching his opponent off guard. But its a gamble all right, putting your life on the line like that. You'd have to have balls of steal... or just bat-shit insane. :evil2:

Get the cleverness to shine threw, have Naruto just get simple supplies and use some imagination, its what he does best and think up the idea to mask his (at 1st) explosive notes as poker cards before moving on to more advanced stuff like sealed items and jutsu. I can already see it, Naruto is captured the guards are right there after another torture session playing poker with his cards no less, one hand seal later and we've got bloody... mush scattered all over the place and a huge hole in the wall for Naruto too escape through.

Ah, but the Surprise Anko Buttsex is about the only thing that fic has going for it...it's riddled with cliches, and the whole Destiny and Luck thing just made me roll my eyes. :no:

At any rate, I've always wondered...why not give Naruto a really interesting weapon? It's almost always a sword...even people who diverge from that tend to go for knives, staffs, nunchuks, warhammers, and occasionally axes. Where's Naruto using a meteor hammer or rope dart, the urumi, the three-sectional staff, or even wind and fire wheels? Though I suppose those may be too exotic. But heck, even spears and naginatas son't pop up often, and those are traditional...

Though that's a minor complaint, I suppose.

Edit: I was referring to Every Woman Loves a Man that Will Listen, which isn't exclusively Moegi/Naruto, but rather Naruto having romantic moments with several women, one of whom is Moegi...right now, if he's with anyone, it's probably Tenten. Very good, though compared to the first chapter, the other chapters are much shorter.

As for Naruto: The Gambler, it's on FF.Net, by ZenoNoKyuubi. You should be able to easily find it from there. :rolleyes:

Well, I began reading the fic but.... I do NOT abide such unoriginality OR such two dimentional characters, especially ones that the author tries sooo hard to make "cool". Training aside, him becoming who he is today is just as important, if not more so, than what he'll eventually become.

To me, if there is no explanation for the change of Naruto's personality then there was no character growth.

OOC + "no explination as for how" = suckage. In my opinion anyways.

Hey, like I said...the Surprise Anko Buttsex is all it has going for it. And I've read better.

This idea came about when I read the story " The Night the House of Card was Built." I got to thinking what would a Naruto be like who created a whole ninja style around gambleing an useing playing card based jutsu.

The Idea starts when Naruto is 7 and he trying to find a place to hide out till his birthday is over an stumbles on the old clubhouse/hang out of the Sannin when they were still just gennin. Inside he finds books on gambleing and playing card, scrolls on seals and some early note for a naughty book, and scrolls on chakra control and some basic elemental jutsus along with scrolls that talk about the diffrent bloodlines. Well young Naruto think he found a goldmine an settles in to read since he would be starting school in a few days.

Naruto's first day of classes he brings along with him one of the books on poker and a deck of cards. During a slowly moments in class he starts a game between him, Kiba, Shikamaru, Choji and Shino. Well Naruto wins more offen then he loses an when he does lose it's never much leaveing him ahead. Well annoyed Kiba says Naruto just lucky an that Luck won't help him as a ninja without a clan. This starts Naruto thinking about how to get his luck to work with being a ninja.

Well Naruto returns tot he clubhouse thinking about how to make that work an starts to read one of the scrolls on sealing an notices it's a lot like the thing on his belly that shows up when he uses chakra. Naruto then looks at some of his playing card an gets a idea for his first card jutsu. He makes some cards that have seals on them to create bushins. The first batch can't move around an they just look like he's standing there but with one deck he can make 52 of them to hide among. He calls it his Card Jutsu: 52 Bushin Pickup.

As he gets better an time passes he creates other Card Jutsus like the Card Suffle where he sends his playing card into the air around him and trades places with them to avoid being hit. He still creates his Sexy no Jutsu but it's changed due to the notes he found from a young toad summonor an he creates the Queens Rule where he throws out the four queen cards from his deck an they become four very lovely ladies who aren't wearing very much.


Later on one jutsu idea I had for him was Card Jutsu: House of Cards that traps someone in a house of large playing cards where Naruto can control what happens inside it. Also have Naruto able to use the Card Jutsu: Dead Man's Hand that sends 3 aces and a pair of 8's to grow an surrond a enemy ninja an then they release a mess of sebon neddles between them at the ninja.


What do you all think?
It's an awesome idea, will you be writing it?

It's one thing to revive a dead thread when you post something that actually contributes to the discussion. It's another to necro a thread just to ask someone who has been inactive for the last two years if they are going ahead with an idea that's been effectively dead nearly as long.
 
#42
How the hell am I supposed to know I just found it today while trying to look up a story I wanted to read.
 
#43
Necroing a thread is generally looked down upon on any forum. Not to mention all posts are day stamped. Also, a person's most recent activity can be found on their profile.
 
#46
Noobs have to learn somehow and we used to be much harsher at times because some authors would go inactive for weeks if not months at a time between updates. Necro posting would get people excited to see updates of some of their favorite, but rarely updated, fics only to be dissapointed.

Just make sure to be more careful next time - time stamps ARE there, mandalorianjedi was serious about that. The way that probably works best is with messages on a person's profile, though in this case, the user has left anyway, so....

@mandalorianjedi TFF has a small enough user-base. Let's at least not chase people away for a mistake. If he/she does it again, well, off with their head! :p
