Story Challenge: Gandalf hires ninja from Konoha to destroy the One Ring. Use of the following story prompt is optional: Challenge details: Choose a team that Gandalf will believe will not betray Naruto, or at least will resist the One Ring's influence. (Hint: Sasuke with his cursed seal is a bad idea). Having one or more members of the team actually corrupted by the ring's influence is optional, but encouraged. The team must face the Nazgul and Sauruman on the way to Mount Doom. Going through Moria and having Gandalf fight the Balrog there is optional. The Kyuubi is evil. No "Fem Kyuubi" who loves Naruto in its own way. It's a demon. (It can take the form of a female for seduction purposes in order to help corrupt certain team members, like say, a certain super pervert if he is made part of the team, but not to humanize it or crap like that.) No overpowered Naruto. All characters have the powers and abilities they have at the time of the Chuunin exam finals. That means Naruto can summon and Lee can use 3 gates, but that's the limit. No sage mode Naruto. (If you want him to learn Rasengan on the way, that would be alright, but that's the limit.) No half-demon or whatever Naruto. He's Naruto. There must be temptations from both the Kyuubi and the One Ring placed on Naruto, and the One Ring will attempt to corrupt the various team members.
