Naruto, The story (8):
The Chûnin Exams: The Forest of Death

The 2nd exam is a survival exam in a circular region surrounded by 44 locked gate entrances dubbed the Forest of Death. There is a river, a forest, and in the middle is a tower.
The exam consists of a competition over two scrolls - the scroll of Heaven and Scroll of Earth - which are evenly split among 26 teams. Each team receives either a scroll of heaven or a scroll of earth. To pass, a team must bring both scrolls to the tower within 5 days. That means at least half (at least 13 teams) won't pass.

A team that cannot bring both scrolls (one of the Heaven and one on the Earth) to the tower with the three teammates will fail. Any team that loses a teammate or produces an unrecoverable teammate will fail. Teams are not allowed to look inside scrolls until they reach the tower.
