Passive said:Being the highly dense and concentrated source that it is, the Midnight Rose Petal can be passively activated in order to release iron sand from its surface creating a dense sand storm linked to the user, who serves as the epicenter at all times. The iron sand, sand storm is dense enough to block out normal sights, chakra enhanced sights from KG like the Sharingan, as well as normal sensory due to the user's chakra signature being the same as the source, which can also be used for other iron sand techniques. This feat lasts 3 turns starting within short range of the user and then growing outwards, in an omnidirectional manner, an additional range with every progressing turn capping within long range.
Amidst the various commotion, Zapp would be notified by his ST: Sensci of his opponent's sudden disappearance prompting the shinobi to discontinue the fueling of his very powerful earth technique allowing the numerous pieces of earth to fall into the massive crater filling it, leaving the battlefield in that realm uneven and splintered. As his his passive shroud of iron sand extends into the depths of mid.range around himself, the ST would sense the man's sudden reappearance long range above (You didn't specify so It's up to me ), and as he begins to rotate and descend down upon the sand shinobi he would swiftly react along with the Tekkyu which releases a strong magnetic field within short range that boosts the power of iron sand techniques.Arriving at the field merged with GOA, Dragon Fang around his waist in whip form, and sword on right hip, Logix focused upon his opponent, taking note that is was the same knucklehead from not too long ago. Inside Logix's psyche, Achlys would trash talk the man before her similar to before, while also imposing a certain challenge on Logix this time around, much to the Nara's amusement.
CW & Merger
(Bugu no Achlys) - Garb of Achlys
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.
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.
It's more so to putting you in the ground like your unfashionable ancestors.
As the iron sand blockade is released and the earth beneath him begins to crumble, Logix would act to countermeasure both the likely underground attack and the pesky blockade. Passively opening the fifth gate, Logix would swiftly manoeuvre to above Zapp, dashing on the air to do so and going into his opening attack. Likely still distracted by the earth technique's manipulation, Zapp should fall prey to a vortex of rotating winds descending from above him, pushing away the blockade of iron sand, and potentially inflicting damage on Zapp and his tools. The strength and size of the vortex, combined with the out of nowhere randy orton element, should catch Zapp's unawares! (28speed vs 24tracking)
( Hachimon ) The Eight Inner Gates
( Sukaiu~ōku ) - Sky WalkType: Supplementary
Description: The Eight Gates are eight specific points on a person's Chakra Pathway System. They limit the overall flow of chakra within a person's body. The basis for the idea of the chakra gates comes from the body's limits on the functions within it. This makes the body much weaker, but it keeps the body from expiring too soon. By undergoing intense training, one can learn how to open these gates allowing the user to surpass their own physical limits at the cost of extreme damage to their own body. The user opens the gates in sequence, up to the desired gate to achieve its effects. Opening the gates is a fast process and can be done in mere moments up to the 7th gate. When one initially opens up to a given EIG, that opening lasts up to 4 turns. After completing training, users are capable of opening up to the 5th Gate passively. Opening additional gates after initial activation adds 2 turns per activation. However, there is an exception; opening the last and 8th gate can only lasts for 3 turns.
( Kaimon ) - The Gate of Opening: The user activates The Gate of Opening or First Gate, which is located in the brain. This gate removes the restraints of the brain on the muscles so he can begin to access 100% of their strength. Unlocking this gate allows the user to use the Front Lotus. This gate adds +5 damage to Taijutsu and the user becomes 1.5x faster. This gate also adds +10 chakra and damage to Ninjutsu. User suffers -5 damage per turn.
( Kyūmon ) - The Gate of Healing: The user activates the Gate of Healing or 2nd Gate (also named Rest Gate) which is located in the brain. Forcibly increases one's physical strength and temporarily re-energizes the body. This gate adds +10 damage to Taijutsu and the user becomes 2x faster. This gate also adds +10 chakra and damage to Ninjutsu. User suffers -10 damage.
( Seimon ) - The Gate of Life: The user activates the Gate of Life or 3rd Gate which is located in the Spinal cord. The increased blood flow turns the skin red. Allows the user to use Hidden Lotus. This gate adds +15 damage to Taijutsu and the user becomes 2.5x faster. This gate also adds +10 chakra and damage to Ninjutsu. User suffers -15 damage.
( Shōmon ) - The Gate of Pain: The user activates the Gate of Pain or 4th Gate (also named Wound Gate) which is located in the Spinal cord, lower than the Seimon. Increases the user's strength and speed. May cause muscle tissue to begin to tear on use. This gate adds +20 damage to Taijutsu and the user becomes 3x faster. This gate also adds +15 chakra and damage to Ninjutsu. User suffers -15 damage.
( Tomon ) - The Gate of Limit: The user activates the Gate of Limit or 5th gate, which is located in the abdomen. Increases the user's speed and power. This gate adds +30 damage to Taijutsu and the user becomes 3.5x faster. This gate also adds +15 chakra and damage to Ninjutsu. User suffers -15 damage.
( Keimon ) - Gate of View: The user activates the Gate of View or 6th Gate, located in the stomach. Increases the user's speed and power. Opening of this gate releases such enormous amounts of chakra that it can cause nearby water bodies to form a vortex around the user. Allows the user to perform the Morning Peacock. This gate adds +40 damage to Taijutsu and the user becomes 4x faster. This gate also adds +15 chakra and damage to Ninjutsu. User suffers -25 damage.
( Kyōmon ) - The Gate of Wonder: The user activates the Gate of Wonder or 7th Gate which is located below the stomach. Those who open this gate will pour glowing green sweat from every inch of their body, which immediately evaporates from their own heat energy, creating an aura which people would mistake as a green chakra coating. However, the side effects of opening the gate are that the user's muscle fibers are ripped to shreds after exiting this gate, causing intense pain if anything or anyone touches him. Allows the user to perform the Daytime Tiger. This gate adds +60 damage to Taijutsu and the user becomes 7x faster. This gate also adds +20 chakra and damage to Ninjutsu. User suffers -40 damage.
( Shimon ) - The Gate of Death: The user activates the Gate of Death or 8th Gate, located at the heart, requiring the user to puncture their chest just above the heart in order to open it, enabling the user to achieve what is described as The Eight Gates Released Formation" ( Hachimon Tonkō no Jin ). Opening this gate will cause the user's blood to emanate a flaming aura of red steam, the so-called Steam of Blood ( Chi no Jōki ) from all pores of their body, hair, and eyebrows. Releasing this gate uses up all of the body's energy while making the heart pump at maximum power. Exceeding the power of every other gate, the user is temporarily granted power far exceeding their normal power, far beyond that of the five Kage. Once activated, those who are capable can perform the Evening Elephant and the Night Guy. The side effect of opening this gate is that it comes at the expense of the user's life, causing the user to crumble to ash after their chakra runs out, having virtually cooked themselves from the inside-out. This is unlike opening the other gates, which simply injure or damage the body. This gate adds +120 damage to Taijutsu and the user becomes 8x faster and allows the user to warp space with his Taijutsu and its speed.
Note: The EIG users can only open the gates twice per fight, meaning that if he allows the EIG opening to time out, he can only open the EIGs once more during the match.
Note: Starting with the fifth gate, EIG users begin to feel the side effects of each gate as they time out.
Note: The user cannot use other self powering techniques (such as custom variations of Lightning Armor, Sage Mode, etc) while he has EIG opened
Note: After use of the 8th Gate, the user will pass away.
( Hitori Omote Renge ) - One-Man Front LotusType: Supplementary
Range: Short - Long
Description: A skill usable by all EIG users to move at high speeds to dodge, attack or defend from techniques. The ability pertains to movement in the battle field, meaning running, walking, jumping, dashing, etc and its speed depends on the Gate currently opened.
Note: This follows the same rules and restrictions of Flicker Evasion.Type: Offensive
Range: Short - Mid
Damage: 60 +30
Description: A singular version of its parent technique, the Front Lotus, the user instead starts spinning by himself creating strong air currents around him after having jumped high enough, and dives down on the opponent rather than with them. The effect is drastic as the momentum the user carries and the massive rotating vortex of air around him can create a crater upon impact on the ground. This technique can be used to fight on equal grounds with elemental techniques, using the air vortex produced by the fast spinning to clash with the technique with the user as the driving force beneath the attack.
Note: Requires at least three Gates to be opened.
Tekkyu said:Būsuto: requiring 20 chakra to be activated, the Tekkyū will amplify the magnetic field within short range of itself subsequently boosting the damage of offensive iron sand techniques within that realm. For that turn iron sand techniques within short range of the Tekkyū will be created more dense, compact, and hardened to near solidity which reflects as +20 damage. The user can activate this technique along with other techniques.
