Once upon a time, a vicious Ninja was captured by a noble Hero and sentenced to death by a 50-man firing squad of Marksman.

These Marksmen had a reputation for being terrible shots. More often than not,their arrows would not fly true and criminals would be left to bleed to death.The Hero thought this a fitting punishment, so he made no effort to improve his Marksmen’ aim or alleviate the criminals’ suffering.

When the time for the execution came, the Ninja begged for mercy. The Hero laughed and said, "Certainly. I will add 50 extra Marksmen to the squad,and you may pick where they stand when they shoot you. They can't stand more than 20 feet away, they must be facing you, and you must remain tied to the post in the middle of the yard.” The Hero chuckled cruelly and added, “In fact,if you aren't dead by sundown, I'll even release you."

After giving his instructions to the Marksmen, the Hero left his castle to attend to noble business. When he returned the next day, his Marksmen informed him that the Ninja had been set free alive and well. "Explain yourselves or I’ll have you all executed!” the Hero roared. The First Marksmen looked down at the ground and said, “It wasn’t our fault! It was where he told us to stand!”

Where did the Ninja tell the Marksmen to stand?

First 5 players to get the correct answer will win 600Gems
20 more will win 200 Gems each as participation prize and will be picked randomly.

The ninja told the marksmen to stand in a circle around him.  Any shot that missed the ninja would therefore hit a marksman on the opposite side of the circle, so they wouldn't fire.

Well, bit boring but Well. Yeah.
He told them to stand in a circel around him, this way if they shot and missed they would hit their own, so all refuseer to shoot, hence he walks.

Sorry. Forgot to read the rest of the riddle. *if the marksmen had fired, they would hit the marksman standing on the other side of the circle.

He told them to stand around him in a circle so they wouldn't shoot their own by mistake.

He told them to stand around him in a circle. If they shot and missed, they would hit their own. So all the marksmen refused to shoot him. He was alive.

All the marksmen stand around in a circle hence when they miss they hit their own men thus being free at the end.

Is there a criteria for the accepted CORRECT answer? Because mine will be complete.
The ninja told them to form a circle around him. All the squad was facing in at the ninja, ready to shoot, when they realized that the group has a reputation of being terrible shots. Everyone who missed would likely end up shooting another squad member. No one dared to fire knowing the risk. Thus at sundown he was released. Im the 6th person who answered this question, but the others were not specific like Royce Wang aka Devastator who just said that if the marksmen fired, they would hit the marksmen on the other side and the ninja will walk free, but what happens is that when they all fire, everyone dies including the ninja. So i believe i made the 4th or 5th correct answer. :p andd Zyzzx's answer doesnt make any sense. haha
