Chakra: 10 per turn | Up to forty for specific abilities
Description: Garb of Achlys, or GOA, is an ancient tool that takes the form of a battered piece of clothing that resembles a cloth, although due to the abilities it has it has been seen in different forms. Once a worthy owner encounters GOA it would form a bond with them and change into a form desirable and suitable for the user. Once this is accomplished the user would be granted several new abilities, all for a cost though. This is due to the parasitic nature of GOA. GOA is a conscious, sentient construct that although is aware of the world around it, does not interact with it in a significant manner, merely just being present. The weapon itself is said to have an unknown number of capabilities, however only a numbered amount of it’s abilities are currently known.
First and foremost, the garb’s connection with user and the user’s capabilities. Through it’s awareness of the world GOA grants Vayne sensory, however it is limited to shadows. Vayne becomes aware of any and all shadows present in the area, no matter how small or faded they may be. However, although he becomes aware of the shadow, distinguishing specific parts of the shadow would require concentration. Normally Vayne would have a basic understanding of what the shadow is, for example he would distinguish that fingers are being held up, but with concentration he would be capable of knowing how many fingers are being held up. This sensory grants Vayne a two times multiplier in regards to sensing. Of course this ability becomes completely useless for constructs that lack a shadow. This ability is always active as long as a piece of GOA is in contact with Vayne. It costs five chakra points per turn. The user is limited to focusing on 3 objects, during which his awareness of the outer world is cut to just being aware.(No sensory multiplier)
The second ability relates to the general function of the garb and it’s bias towards perfection. Due to this GOA can essentially change it’s shape into anything and separate into multiple shapes to match the need’s of it’s bearer. GOA has the ability to alter it’s size, this proves useful when it is owned by different users. The size altering occurs after the user passively sacrifices twenty chakra points, through those GOA could change it’s size, essentially expanding at a rapid rate, allowing it to assume more shapes. Individually, GOA can be treated as a cloth, not offering any defensive or offensive capabilities. However, when more and more of GOA build atop itself it can reach surmountable strength and durability. The power of GOA depends on the amount of additional chakra the user supplies, with the strength corresponding to the 1:2 chakra:damage output. This can be used five times per battle. When hitting thirty chakra points mark, the strength increase only lasts three turns, which upon ending prevent the utilisation of the power increase of equal or higher measure for two turns. Sacrificing forty results in an increase that only lasts two turns, after which a three turn interval must pass before the reutilisation of the power increase ability. In regards to sacrifices lower than thirty, they all last for four turns, after which a turn interval must pass before the utilisation of the technique. The aspect of decreasing the size of GOA would cost five chakra points and can be freely used as it offers no noteworthy advantage to the user. Any offensive/defensive actions done with the expanded cloth would cost a move, barring the turn it expands in. Alternatively, instead of granting pure damage output, GOA can offer damage reduction abilities, working on a 1:1 chakra:shaving basis. This can be implemented into the damage aspect, following the same restrictions, with the added caveat of the max total of both being fifty chakra, but naturally never exceeding fourty for a single aspect.
The third and perhaps the most battle useful ability of GOA is it’s relation to the Nara clan arts and related techniques. The garb implements it’s awareness into the user and clear their mind from any unnecessary thoughts(killing intent and similar/emotion altering techniques) , this allows the user to be more proficient with their usage of nara clan related techniques, allowing them to be able to create and use more complex and concentration requiring techniques. Normal techniques would be performed with more ease, translating to a -5 to chakra requirement for initial usage of the technique. Furthermore, GOA has one more function that greatly aids the user in conflicts. It becomes passively active when a nara or related technique is used(Shadow CFS for example), GOA would release some of the user’s previously taken chakra into the technique, empowering it as a result. This translates to a rank increase for A ranks and below, while for higher it increases the power by ten. This ability can only come into effect as long as the GOA has taken some chakra beforehand. GOA absorbs five chakra points per turn for this ability and would require twenty chakra points in order to have the ability come into play, however, the user can actively sacrifice chakra, four times per battle, in order to have a higher storage of chakra. The user can sacrifice up to forty chakra points, this can be performed in the same timeframe of a technique, allowing the user to have the boost added to the attack in the same instance it is released. Boosts are restricted to once every two turns.
In regards to the GOA's durability, it depends on the extent of the second abilities usage that was previously mentioned. When the ability is not in use the garb would be as durable as normal clothes, leaving it vulnerable to attacks. However, all parts of the garb must be destroyed in order to render it completely useless. If a portion of the garb was not destroyed then it could be used to return the garb to it's former glory, based on the capabilities/restrictions placed on the second ability.
-Can only be used by a nara.
-If not on the user's person, it can be summoned similar to any other weapon, additionally, GOA is not negatively affected by states or similar that the user assumes. Such as turning into fire won't burn or negatively affect the Garb itself, allowing it to be wielded without any hindrance.
(Tessaria No Zangō) - Trenches of Thessaly
Chakra: 30 or 50 Per Turn | Up to 40 for specific abilities
Description: As the user grows accustomed to the Garb of Achlys, the relationship between the two can be bolstered. Fully embracing the parasitic nature of the ancient tool, GOA would merge with the user's body, where GOA's sentience would now become more prevalent as it becomes capable of interacting with the user in their mind, akin to a Jinchuriki and their Biju's interaction. Naturally, the sentience is in the form of Achlys herself, 'Goddess of the Eternal Night'.
Trenches of Thessaly enables the user and Achlys to work in tandem, empowering their overall merger. The prime ability bolstered is the user's connection to their shadow and their capabilities with it, where the user's sensory capabilities in regards to shadows is bolstered rising to x3, with the user's external awareness on objects not focused on being at a x1.5 sensory multiplier. Labelled as the Tears of Fate.
Fields of Flower, accessible only to those with Fūin, considered as Kage/Fūin, enables the user to expand on the weapon's supplementing capabilities, allowing the user to gain a greater degree of control over shadow based techniques. Thrice per battle at a cost of fourty chakra, with a turn interval, the user can supplement a shadow with a dark silver scripts/insignias for Primordial Darkness, having said seal appear on the shadow and on the user/Achlys merger. The seal grants the shadow based technique an 'Absolute' state, where it becomes unaffected by any foreign techniques that target chakra in clashes/interactions. While the sealing effects are of S rank level, the key to defeating the seals is a light source (fire/lightning) that matches the 'applied to' technique's strength. Due to the insignia's being split between the user and the technique, combating one or the other becomes easier, as the light source can be a rank lower. Flashbombs/blinding lights, if used within short range, can erase the insignias, but, as a soft counter to FF, if the insignia on the user's body persists/unaffected, the seal on the technique is reformed, maintaining the techniques 'Absolute' state. Can last up to three turns, at a cost of twenty chakra per turn, with it applicable in same t/f, or simply after.
Trenches of Thessaly can last as long as the user has the chakra to maintain it, and naturally as they are merged, the user can use any of Garb of Achlys core abilities through their body. In regards to Achlys herself, her presence within the user's mind naturally bolsters the existing resistance, making the user's thoughts impenetrable to mind reading techniques and similar of A rank and below. Notably this ability costs twenty chakra per turn, with Field's of Flower, if activated, costing 20 per turn, and Trenches of Thessaly itself costing another ten chakra per turn that stacks with GOA's own chakra cost. The user's merger with GOA itself costs fourty chakra points, with the user having the option of entering a battle merged with the weapon, but only being capable of utilising two active techniques in the first turn.
Entrusted with control over the vessel, the Logix persona strode into the field with a grin on his face. It would seem that his mission for the day would be one of rehabilitation, for an old sage no less. Merged with the Goddess Achlys herself, the young Nara approached the target with a sense of nonchalant, augmented by the fact that his opponent was sleeping...
As he arrived in the classical mid range start, Logix would see his opponent spring up into action, awakening from his slumber and letting out a unique greeting. Logix would cheekily respond as he observed the equally stylish man "I hope those old bones can keep up, green haired-sama!" The Goddess would comment within Logix's mind, prompting a chuckle from the white haired man. 'Don't be ridiculous, he would never!'
The rising chunk of earth would be met with the formation of an aura in the shape of the nine tailed fox, one that would pulsate outwards towards the earth technique in the form of numerous seed-like orbs. The technique, labeled Corruption, would be enhanced through Dragon Fang and the Stardust component of Dalmascan Refinery, granting the explosive inducing fire a decent boost in strength. The fire seeds would ravage through the technique and land itself, phasing through them and causing mass explosions and damage to the area before Logix, naturally all angled away from Logix and directed towards Amaimon. The seeds would overcome the earth and continue towards Amaimon, much more expansive in range and numbers as it's chain reaction of explosions kept it's lethality at a significant damage level. Should the wind be used, it would be overcome by the Corruption, leading to significant damage to the man.
Logix, through his sensory of shadows, would keep tabs on Amaimon as much as possible given the inhibitions provided by the large scale techniques used.
(Katon: Kaika Ninetails: Dai Roku Tēru. Oshokui) | Fire Release: Flowering Ninetails: Sixth Tail; Corruption(Magunisuton: Darumasukan Seiyusho) | Magnesium Release: Dalmascan RefineryType: Offensive
Range: Short - Long
Damage: 80 + 25 + 20 = 125
Description: Allows for the release of vast amounts of pure fire chakra from all over ones body that creates an aura in the shape of nine fox tails, each twice the size of the user, that will cocoon around the users body. The tails can be manipulated to attack or defend for a time - acting as condensed chakra capable of interacting with physical objects to deal blunt and burning damage - however their real power lies in their ability to disperse into dozens, if not hundreds of seed like orbs of fire chakra that, by default pulsate outwards in all directions, but can be directed towards particular locations should the user so wish. As the seeds travel outwards they indiscriminately phase into any object, being, or technique of lesser strength and forcefully alter or distort it's properties to make it explode - with said explosions always being angled away from the user. When a structure explodes it in turn releases countless more seeds that allows for a chain reaction that can completely devastate battlefields, as the seeds are capable of making the strength of undermined techniques into their own, not weakening, but instead growing in strength and number with each clash. This ability is effective against all earth based techniques of lesser strength (Excluding crystals), opposing fire techniques of lesser strength, and water techniques two ranks lower, however it is ineffective against water techniques of A rank and above, Lightning techniques and wind techniques; A rank water techniques will simply evaporate while Lightning and Wind techniques will clash normally.
- Can only be used 2x
- No fire techniques above B rank for the rest of the turn
- Cannot be used on consecutive turns
- Can only be taught by ScazeType: Supplementary
Chakra: 20 (-5 per turn)
Description: Dalmascan Refinery is a technique that allows the user to apply a general alteration the size, shape and alignment of Magnesium grain particles to achieve a variety of different effects.
Stardust: This alteration will have the user produce tinier than normal magnesium particles. Despite this the size of the magnesium technique will be maintained as more magnesium particles will be produced to compensate for the smaller grain size. Smaller grain size will result in a larger surface area that will ultimately culminate in greater reactivity. Ultimately, when ignited the intensity at which magnesium burns will be greatly increased, granting it a +20 damage boost for this period of time, similarly magnesium can be funnelled into an ignition source, such as fire or lightning to grant the boost to the combo or desired technique.
Stardust II: This alteration follows the same principle of Stardust, the difference here however is that the produced particles are even tinier. The result is a dangerously high surface area which will result in magnesium techniques that are exposed to an ignition source not simply igniting, but rather exploding. This phenomenon is similar to the real life event of dust explosions.
Chrysthaneum: This alteration affects the alignment of magnesium particles. Normally particles would remain stagnant - that is they would follow the movement of the greater whole with little deviation. Under the influence of Chrysthaneum however produced magnesium particles will spiral and grind against each other, producing friction, heat, and sparks that will result in the self-ignition of magnesium techniques.
Jigsaw: This alteration also affects the alignment of magnesium particles, and juxtaposes the effects of Chrysthaneum. Normally magnesium particles are of non-uniform shapes and sizes, Jigsaw however will produce magnesium particles that perfectly align with one another. The result will be particles that can interlock for greater stability and strength, which will greatly increases the strength of compact magnesium techniques. Compact magnesium techniques will gain a +20 damage boost, or rank increase, under the effects of Jigsaw. Magnesium techniques under Jigsaw, due to the greatly reduced surface area, become far less reactive and can no longer ignite.
Brokenshard: This alteration affects the shape of magnesium particles. Normally magnesium particles will be random in shape, under the effects of Brokenshard however the shape of magnesium particles will be altered to emphasise piercing and slicing qualities. Produced magnesium particles will be needle or blade like in shape, resulting in magnesium techniques that are jagged and razor sharp, greatly increasing destructive power. Under the influence of Brokenshard Magnesium technique will gain a +20 damage boost, and non-offensive magnesium technique will gain offensive properties equal to their rank/defensive power.
Brightsteel: This alteration affects how magnesium particles are visually perceived. Normally magnesium will appear as a standard silvery metal. Under the effects of Brightsteel however each magnesium particle will be magnificently polished and its reflectivity will be further increased through the user of chakra. As a result Brightsteel magnesium will reflect light to such an extent that it will appear blindingly bright, similar to the Hidden Mist Eye Sight Deprivation, temporarily blinding the opponent for as long as they look at the technique directly.
Logically not every particle is perfectly controlled and tailored, however enough is done to achieve a uniform and desired effect.
This technique can be used twice, last four turns each time and has a cooldown of two turns. On account of its nature, being that it has no independent uses, it can be activated instantly and in the same timeframe as another technique.
The user can apply up to two alterations at any one time, however Chrysthaneum is incompatible with Jigsaw. The user can also choose to not apply any alterations to a utilised magnesium technique.
When this technique ends, the user will be incapable of utilising B ranked or above magnesium techniques for two turns.
Dragon FangSorry bout the long techs o_o'Dragon Fang is a Dragon Blade that can take any other held weapon form and can boost an element it is applied to by +25 and can seal any Jutsu up to S rank without chakra cost by the user as long as the technique uses less than 60 chakra. Does not count as a Custom Weapon.
