The History of Iwagakure - The village hidden in the stones


The original starting point of Iwagakure was in the land of stone, the village stationed on a peninsula in the rocky outcrop of the land among countless brutal mountains. Growing crops in the area was nearly impossible, and so the village elders decided that the village would become one of the Shinobi villages across the lands; and in turn, the money they gained from assignments would be used to buy essentials they themselves had little access to, with no good farm land, and very little money. In the beginning, the only inhabitants of the village, which was currently known as Komu, were few in number, and most of them were young people who'd wished to see the world, or old, who had no choice but to remain where they were, to frail to make any journey. The young men were chosen by the elders to be Shinobi, whilst the woman were designated other jobs, such as cooking, and housework, something which they reluctantly began to accept. After 10 years, the village was known as a minor Shinobi power, with business mostly in assassinations and stealth missions, and a steady trade was coming by, from prospecting merchants selling weapons and knowledge, or food and commodities, and some began to permanently settle in the village, seeing a good business opportunity. A basic education system was established, in which Shinobi would test young children, and those who were deemed worthy, were taught ninja arts, under the tutorship of the more powerful elders. Come the 12th anniversary of the village's establishment, is possessed 80 Shinobi, led by a council of the more powerful ninja.

However, the woman wanted their rights, their proper place in society, and they began to protest. Some were much more radical than others, and a few skirmishes, in which 3 women were killed, and 2 Shinobi, a small bloodshed considering how much more there could've been, had the village elders not decided that kunochi were in fact equal to Shinobi, and lifted the ban on female ninjas. Two years later, the numbers of Komu's force had doubled, and they were now seen as one of the five major villages, word of their missions and deeds spreading quickly, settling a renown onto their name. Finally, the village decided it was worthy of being the Shinobi power of it's country, and became Iwagakure, and the first election of a kage was held. Celebrations were thrown everywhere in the village, which was now 10 times what it had been at first, with over 600 non-Shinobi residents and a 700 strong Shinobi force. The candidates were selected by the village elders, and a tournament was held, for which a whole stadium was erected, made of pure white stone extracted from the depths of the mountain, and over two thousand people attended, 900 not from Iwagakure. Trade was roaring, and all areas of business were booming. The village's buildings increased hugely, and the famous tournament square was made. It is seen as the center point of the village; at the edges are the statues of past Tsuckikages, each about 20 foot tall and made form marble, with roads leading in all directions, toward the Tsuchikage's residence, the Shinobi academy, the housing districts, the shopping streets, generally most of the village.

Under the First Tsuchikage's rule, Iwagakrue began to flourish. His name was Sensato, Etzu, and he was a kindly man, about thirty when he won the tournament for the name of Tsuchikage, but looked much older, with wrinkles lining his face, and warm brown eyes, accompanied with a smile. He was a generous man, who believed in peace and learning, expanding the Shinboi Academy in Iwagakure and making it open to everyone, of all skill levels, for absolutely no fees. This was greeted with happiness and welcoming, and the Shinobi population began to increase dramatically, as well as the citizen population, with people having a good eye for trade, and others looking for a good place to settle down. Iwagakure was renowned for it's welcoming attitude, it's festivals, it's sheer joy in everything it did, and the Tsuchikage tried to make peace with other countries, to establish trade for prosperity, and cease any chances of war. The first organization to be offered a treaty was the village hidden in the leaves, Konohagakure, as they were a wealthy country who promoted peace and trade, with ideals similar to Iwagakure's, at the time, and a deal was willingly, quickly and happily sealed between the two major powers. Many magnates came to the village, and everything was going well; but for some of the rich, money wasn't enough; no, they wanted a piece of the political pie, and these money hoarders started a council, to which they implored the Tsuchikage to listen to, and, being the man he was, he agreed to hear them out. The men told him that Iwagakure held many great, rare minerals, which could be mined in huge quantities for huger profits. Although Sensato was not interested, they persisted, telling him to make peace with the rock country. Eventually, he gave in, and began talks with Kumogakure; however, they saw this as hostile, for they knew of the magnates wishing to exploit their land, and decided to retaliate. Two months later, Etzu Sensato was lying dead in the Tsuchikage Residence.

With their beloved Tsuchikage dead, the shin obi of Iwagakure were in uproar, and the masses of ninja and civilians alike were demanding action, after a hasty meeting to discuss the succession of the title. War was foremost in the minds of all, and the Second Tsuchikage, Kohoku Yoszin, was the most blood thirsty of all the Iwa shinobi; and so the declaration of war upon the nation of Kumogakure was announced, and only two weeks after the assassination of the first Tsuchikage, over 900 Shinobi made their way into the heat of battle; with anger swelling in their minds, tactics and orders were abandoned. The sole aim of the marchers was to lay wreck to the nation they hated, be it man, woman or child, they wanted to hurt the people who had killed their leader, and it was little problem for Kumogakure to defend themselves from such a chaotic advance.

Needles to say, the frenzy of war that was launched in retaliation was complete chaos, and Iwagakure returned home, numbers decimated and reputation shredded. On that day, over 700 Shinobi died in the fighting on just their side; and the worst part, Kumogakure had sustained next to no damage or casualties, dealing with the insane waves with ease, and was now marching toward their attackers, hoping to crush them once and for all, to end the battle and to gain honor and prestige, not to mention to conquer a powerful village and eliminate a threat. The Second Rsuchikage himself went uninjured, and was preparing for a valiant defense he hoped to be remembered for, knowing that all hope was lost. However, two days after his return, one of his students approached him; a student not so radical and bloodthirsty as his master, but more importantly, a student with a plan. With many persuasive arguments and nods from his senior council members, the Tsuchikage reluctantly agreed to the plan.

All villagers were evacuated from Iwagakure and sent to a safe haven in the mountains, as the Daimyo would not host them, angered by their reckless behavior, and most of all, their incapability to beat Kumogakure. Every single Shinobi pitched into the effort, all developing and creating as many clones as possible. When this was complete, the fakes were lined along the walls, each in strategic points and armed with their fake weapons; however, this was no problem, for a few real Ninja's stood among the copies, intended to help the pretense that the army was indeed fighting. Traps were set all along the mountains. Some were Shinobi-made, explosive tag traps and tripwires connected to detonators, but others were seemingly natural, although they had indeed been created. Large chunks of rock were loosened, so that any person stepping on them or scaling them would break them off and loose their footing, as well as damaging any under or behind them. The Shinobi army of Kumogakure, however, marched past with little effort, their thousands of troops loosing only an estimated 10 to the traps that had been layed in a desperate defense, at least, that was what the strategists of Iwagakure wanted them to believe.

When the march arrived, they let hell loose, using Doton techniques to make large natural defenses for the advancing forces, whilst also demolishing structures and walls; it wasn't long before they realized their mistake, of course, but even so, they were too late. The Shinobi of Iwagakure were now surrounding the enemy, and in minutes, a blood bath arrived. After only an hour, Kumogakure's remaining troops surrendered.

Talks of a peace treaty circulated, but they were short lived. Both sides had sustained huge casualties, and neither were in much condition to resume the war, but this wasn't enough to stop Iwagakure. If anything, it made them more eager. They had tasted victory. Their forces were weak and few, but perhaps still enough to conquer the weaker Kumogakure, and so, under the command of the now cautious Second Tsuchikage and his advisers, their attack was launched, 200 Shinobi flanking the enemies village. However, one glitch in the plan was the terrain. In their last battle, the steep rocky outlay of the land had been against them, and the natural earth users of Kumo had a clear advantage. A group of twenty Shinobi, including the Tsuchikage himself, commenced 'Operation Shatter'. Their job was to attempt to level the area around Kumo so it was to their advantage before the main army arrived; overall, the mission was a success, with only one casualty, Iwagakure had destroyed the natural advantages of the land, and they found even more victory when they finally took Kumogakure.
