Degarashan

Degarashan revolves around Degarashi Port, its commercial and administrative center. The port city has been besieged, conquered and even destroyed during its long history and thus guards itself well. A corps of expert summoners protect the city by land, sea and air. The surrounding countryside is dominated by fields, grazing lands and farm communities supplying the city with food.

Takauji Ashikaga and his Black Ones have built their headquarters here and made the city into their capital. Soldiers of the Shogunate patrol the streets, ruthlessly stomping out dissent while Ashikaga and his advisors rule from deep inside the headquarters. The building is a large, twisted castle made of seemingly fused black stone. A number of towers and buildings are still being built, but the walls are complete and the keep inside is vast enough for most of the state functionaries to reside here.

Coming from: Here



Lena flew into Degarashan territory, though she knew that landing near to the Port would cause trouble, the place had history when it came to defending against strangers and bring a Summoned bird close to it's borders would just alert the summoners that protect the borders of the Port town. She landed amongst the countryside field, Songbird flew high into the sky again by Lena's order. She walked the main road, in her hood, it was quiet and nothing interesting happened upon it. Degarashi Port came into view, you could tell that it help more power than most places in the Tea peninsula as it had it's own Wall - this wasn't going to be easy, they weren't just going to let her in.

She waited for now, taking rest near a boulder covered in vines and vegetation, it was half on the grass and half in farmland. Lena hid behind it for now, waiting for travellers on the main road. It took an hour or so before something suitable made it's way passed her; a covered wagon pulled by a couple mules slowly moved by. She dashed for the back of it, grabbing a hold of the wooden perch and lifted her legs up off the ground high so that he body swung into the cargo area. It was full of crates and rolls, looks like a carpenter's wagon. She shuffled her way to the back of the wagon and sat amongst the items, hidden for now. She knew the guards would come check, she just hoped they wouldn't be so good at their job

The Wagon stopped, Lena let out a breath before sucking in air and holding it. She could hear the footsteps of the guards moving around the Wagon and then a light beamed into the darkness of the covered wagon's cargo, bouncing off the crates and rolls. This caused Lena to slowly slouch down further. A booming laugh was heard for a moment before the light moved away returning the cart to darkness. A moment passed before a whip of the reins were heard and the wheels of the wagon began to clatter against the rocks again. Lena breathed again, glad that went so well. Activity grew around her, she was definitely in the cities' walls now all she had to do was escape this covered wagon. Well, did she? Whilst in the back of the Cart Lena raised her right fist and channelled her chakra into one of her rings, from the ring grows out one of her summons and companions taking the form of a Humanoid. Opposite her sat Jinx with a sheathed Katana resting on her lap.

"It's been a hell of a long time...Lena." The blue haired girl grinned at her summoner, though there was a bit of annoyance in her eyes also - at least so Lena could tell.

(Kuchiyose : Zonbi) - Summoning : Zombies
Type: Offensive
Rank: B-Rank
Range: Short - Long
Chakra Cost: 20
Damage Points: 40
Description:
From the very body of The Gravemind (Sprout the Gravemind Summon) it's flesh is in the control of a Rhizecephalia Parasitic type barnacle which manipulates the flesh to it's entirety, this is normally called a Kōzui. In this case these Kōzui are personal to the user and are seemingly trapped inside an ordinary sized Acorn Barnacle shells which are attached to the user's body, armor or some accessory they keep on their body due to the way Barnacles permanently attach to surfaces. The Shells are pretty small so can be attached to places like the underside of the tongue and the summon can seemingly grow out from the mouth or can act as the jewel on a ring that the user wears. The user channels chakra into the Shell on their person and the Kozui will pop out (like they are growing out from it) and have a humanoid shape, they can take the form of a Human if they so wish (As long as they have two legs and two arms and are around the same size as a person they can look as cosmetically wacky as the user's preference), a realistic transformation very similar to the Shadow Mirror Body Change Method with clothes and all. The "Zombie" can be spawned with a weapon each made of Calcite Shell, and can be any weapon the user desires - they're just an ordinary weapon. They can be summoned through ordinary summoning means if the user so wishes.

The Kōzui have a very strong resistance to ordinary weapons and taijutsu, anything powered with chakra would hurt the Rhizecephalia normally and being sliced in half with an ordinary blade would still cause the drawbacks of having no legs for example, however the Kōzui can still move and drag themselves with their hands. Kōzui can still feel pain and can break out of genjutsu through pain, however they cannot really be crippled by it (For example pain so severe it would paralyze them or stun them). Kōzui can perform B-Rank Ordinary Strong-Fist Taijutsu OR B-Rank Kenjutsu that the user knows (must be stated when summoned or in the user's bio which of the two they are allowed) and can use Legs of the Thoracica and Body of the Thoracica, and even be fused with the Organs of the Thoracica, the Kōzui also Wield Gadget Barnacles. The Restrictions of the Barnacle Arts when the Zombies use them apply to them separately as they are a singular entity with it's own abilities, their number of usages of an Art will not clash with the Users. Moreover, The Zombies can through the mental command of the signer use ONLY the Legs of the Thoracica and Body of the Thoracica from their Shell which they are trapped within until summoned that is on the User's person.

The Rhizecephalia act as travelling companions and last indefinitely on the field upon summoning, when they take C-Rank Ninjutsu Damage they will disperse from the battlefield back into their shells. They usually come in pairs, but each use of this Technique is a single separate Kozui and so the user can have up to two of these on their bio - each being different.

- Must have Signed Barnacle Summoning Contract
- The Zombies can communicate with the user in their shells, this is mainly cosmetic
- Can only have a Maxmimum of Two of these on ones bio and can only summon two per battle.
- Must be stated in the User's Bio to be capable of being used
- The user can have the Kōzui be taken back inside the acorn shells if in short range
- Can only be used 4 Times

"Hush. Follow me" Lena whispered as she stood up, slightly bent over so she didn't collide with the rood of the covered wagon she climbs over the cargo and makes her way to the perch at the end of the wagon. Jinx looked over Lena's shoulder and whispered to see if it was all clear; it was and they both jumped out and bolted for an alley way where they would hide and talk for now.

"I just need you help scouting the place out."

"Finally! Where have you been? I missed you." Lena glanced downwards, she didn't like bringing Jinx and Viola into her world at Shinramoto - on missions they were very helpful, but with the amount of time she spent at Shinramoto she went long periods of time without bring them into use. They had feelings too however. She just thought they didn't suit social activity, especially around Alicia, as much as they were her allies they were dangerous and - not human, she could barely handle being 'Human' herself.

"I know. I require information on Takauji Ashikaga, go." Lena looked the opposite way of the alley that Jinx ran down, obliging with the Threaded woman. Lena appeared in the streets now, staying calm and casual she walked through, the military presence in this town was a lot more common than in Toksong - this was concerning but she foresaw it. She just had to find out if Takauji Ashikaga did have a hand in why there was so many soldiers patrolling the streets. Lena found herself walking into a Tavern, there was a specific table surrounded by off duty guards which she ignored and proceeded over to the Bar.

"What would you like?"

"Information. Takauji Ashikaga." She whispered.

"We don't have that on tap." He nonchalantly began washing a dish.

"Know anyone who does?"

The Barkeep leans over the bar, getting face to face with Lena, he spoke grimly, "Northern District" then he slowly rose with a happy-go-lucky look on his face. Lena stood and walked away from the Bar and out of the Tavern, she was stopped at the doorway however when some drunk man tried to get in, he bumped into her chest, face between her breasts and he slowly looked up at her with a slightly hazed red face and a dumb look. She just looked down at the pathetic sight.

"Can I help you?"

"You're tall for a lady."

"I'm no 'Lady'."

The man looked confused at this retort and looked back down at her boobs before taking a hold of them in his hands and squeezing. "You're not?"

Her eye twitched. It was only a moment later before the drunken man was chowing down on the wooden table at the other end of the Tavern after being thrown from the doorway. She clearly didn't mean she wasn't a woman, she just meant she wasn't ladylike - that dumb excuse of a man. Lena had stormed off before anyone realised it was her that threw the man across the Tavern and headed to the Northern district. On her way she met up with Jinx who had some interesting information.

"Most of the Northern District has recently been cordoned off and has been re-appropriated for the use of Takauji Ashikaga's Military presence that has taken over the City. This is a fairly new development for the town, but it has been bringing in a lot of Trade and security into the place apparently however a lot of the Northern District were kicked from their homes so that it could be turned into a large Militia barracks section of the city."

"He's brewing an Army."

"An easily seduced army."

"I don't want to know Jinx."

The information they got was right, Guards blocked off streets and new wooden walls had been put in place to bottleneck entrances to the northern district. However these wooden walls wouldn't stop they two. They both climbed over the wooden blockade and landed on the other side, there was no guard presence here. They went stealth and moved through the district, it was quiet from civilian presence just the odd patrol for guards walking through the streets. Houses looked quiet, though there were movement in some - now taking up the space of militia. Lena and Jinx went close to the Northern District's pier, the space began to open up a bit, but it was still pretty easy to hide, there was a lot of Cargo lined up as stacks of crates on pallets and what have you forming it's own little maze of corridors. The two steered clear of the Cargo bays and moved towards the administrative buildings, there had to be important information here. Jinx tapped Lena on the shoulder as they hid behind a large pile of wooden logs; she pointed at a building that had Soldiers in black armour walking from it, and some men in similar attire to the ones that assassinated Surita at Toksong. Lena nodded and waited for the building's front to clear, they made a break for it and ran up the wooden steps and through the door closing it behind them. It looked like a Meeting room, it was long empty and wide with cushions on the floor on either side of the room a table that was very low to the ground running through the middle with various pieces of paper, inkpots and incense sticks lit across it. There was a door at the end of the room which they went over to.

Jinx went through first, it was empty still - there was two Desks on eitherside of the room and at the back a Giant window. Jinx went over to the Desk on the left first as it was the only one with papers and scrolls scattered over it. Lena walked over to the Giant Window, this window overlooked a courtyard down below, it was lower than the rest of the city and had the odd piece of pallets of open Cargo placed on it, but there was a hell of a lot of Guards down there including the ones they saw exiting this very building they were in or those in similar uniforms anyway.

"..."

"These are Schematics for Firearms and not just any firearms, Rifles and Mounted Guns. They have prices here and materials lists, they also have ration schemes and armour designs for Ashikaga's regime. This man is planning to not just raise an army."

"He's planning to reforge a Kingdom in his image." Lena placed her hand against the glass and let out a large sigh, "Shit... How do I stop this?"

Jinx starts to gather up these schematics and other documents before packing them into a bag and throwing it over her shoulder. "We got enough information about this lot for now, Let's go!"

"No. I have another plan."

-Mission End : To Be continued.-

Chakra: 1300 -20

This post marks the beginning of my mission and narrative using these storyboard elements:
- Steal a large or valuable asset (4)
- Fight an enemy much stronger than yourself (5)
- Custom: Against All Odds, Escape (5)

Summary : Lena gathering the information she needs on her enemies, now has a new plan - a new plan essential to fighting this threat. Lena planned to steal some of the Cargo that was intended for use by Ashikaga's Militia, might as well give em a taste of their own medicine. Arming Shinramoto has become her priority now, she wasn't going to be able to protect them all if she was the only one that could fight. The current enemy they will be up against is gonna be much stronger than them because of how many there are Currently, speed was key here and escaping with the goods was the goal.

RP Begins Here

Metal Card CW Ref : Janguru Δ Jungle
Type: Weapon
Rank: S
Range: Short/Long
Chakra Cost: (+40 For Each Reverse Summon)
Damage Points: N/A
Description:
Decks of Cards wrapped in this strange Red String found among a fortune teller's tent after a festival was raided by bandit shinobi, the group sent to defend them were took late. Deemed useless by the Bandits the Decks of cards wrapped around this copious among of red string wasn't looted. It is said that wielders of this string can see the red lines of fate that link people together in the world, whether it is stretched or tangled with other red lines, those people are always destined to eventually cross paths. When Tasuke observed the string he noticed something odd and could in fact see these Red Lines of Fate; however they were linked directly to these Cards so that they could always be found, even if they were on the opposite side of a wall these lines would seemingly pass through to shot where the card was. The Red Lines aren't real or made out of anything, it is actually induced by the real Red String as long as he is wearing it they can see these red lines. Like a permanent illusion. However it does not end here, from the cards red lines will be seen branching off them connecting to foreign chakra sources within a 5 meter radius of it; whether it be the enemy or a technique the invisible almost illusionary string will "wrap" around the foreign chakra as if it was a solid, a person would look like someone wrapped and bound in string; string wrapped around a fireball would flicker around the shape of the unpredictable flames; Water would flow; Lightning would be zig-zagged and Wind would be tangled. Seeing all this red string does not effect the user's vision.

The cards are in a Holster Deck made up of 52 of them that is kept on the user's person. They're Chakra Enhanced Metal Cards, completely black with sharp edges - used as a substitute for Kunai and Shuriken in Jutsu and for Freeform. Each card has inscriptions on them, drawn using the user's blood that has dried onto the surfaces, their ability is simple and uses the link the user has with each of their cards to be able to use them passively. By using some Chakra and one of your three turns the User will slam their hand down on to the surface of their card, poofing into a cloud of smoke and will basically reverse summon themselves to another one of Jungle's Cards - they will always appear in the same way they went in and always on the flat surface of the card being under their feet even whilst the Card is in Transit. However, the Ability of Jungle's cards will only be allowed if the Red String is on the user's person as that carries the properties that will make the string glow redder when each Reverse Summon is activated, if the user and the string are not touching then they can not perform their Ability. The String can be on the person in any way, wrapped around both their arms or anywhere else of the body

- Decks of Cards can be concealed by clothing, so until they are used or revealed by removing said piece of clothing (Sash, Jacket, Over-shirt) the Weapon does not have to be posted for reference/activation until then.
- Smoke, Flash, Explosive Cards replace the use of ordinary Tags and Bombs in Freeform and Jutsu. (These Cards are Colour-Coded, Blue, White, Red Respectively)
- Cards can replace Kunai and Shuriken in Freeform and Jutsu
- Can only be used by LonelyAssassin
- Reverse Summon Ability cannot be used twice in the same turn
- Ability has a Two Turn Cooldown
- Must be Wielding The String To be able to Reverse Summon
- Used in conjunction with Reaper of the Cards
- User can have Multiple Decks of Cards
- Must have Mastered Ninjutsu to be able to Wield
- Reaper of the Cards MUST be the Bio's Specialist Fighting Style.
- Reverse summon can only be used 4 times

Lena looked down from her high perched building at the lowered courtyard that seemed out of view from the rest of the district, watching as militia, soldiers and assassins all moved around checking over the cargo and the weapons - practising and sorting them out. She had to somehow draw them away and then pounce. She had Jinx with her, she was very capable of making a distraction Though Lena might need her for back up. Meanwhile, Jinx opens the door to the Long Room that they walked through to get to this office like section. However, plans would need to be sped up as across from this Room was a Black Armoured Soldier, wielding two short Katanas on eitherside of his waist, the Visor of his helmet glowed red as he spotted Jinx. Lena spun around and threw a barrage of Cards thinking quickly, the Cards hit the door behind the Black Armoured man and jammed it shut, three of these Cards however (Red Cards) slipped through the slits of the framework and moved into the District, finding random areas of it that Lena decided to shoot them towards commanding them to explode.

"I'll Hold Him." Jinx exclaimed and Lena nodded before closing the office door with a slam and spins around charging at the window, and diving through the glass. She spreads out her arms and legs as she falls the distance all the way down the the Courtyard, that had now emptied due to the explosions in the District.

Jinx's attention was fixated on the Armoured Soldier, she noticed however that he had already drew his Katanas and was in a low stance, Metal Cards that had been aimed directly for him had been sliced in half and lay uselessly at his Feet. She barely even saw that happen, he must have been fast - especially for her. This was going to be tough. Jinx's left hand clutches the top of her Katana's sheathe, her right firmly holding the grip as she pulls the two apart. The sheathe hits the floor. Her left hand takes the grip of her blade and she raises it head height, pointing the blade in her enemy's direction and opens up her stance. The Soldier spoke in front of her.

"Your friend won't get Far. I don't need to alert anyone, I will just cut you down and continue to her. Captain Irukashev Reporting."

[video=youtube;iA36gSdoDbE]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iA36gSdoDbE[/video]​

Captain? Ah Crap, a high ranking officer - of course this was why else would he stumble into this building. This enemy was going to be much stronger than Jinx, she just needed to hold him off till Lena can grab what she needs. The man across from her stood with confidence and she was shitting herself. Jinx stepped forward slowly, coming up to the low sitting table she stepped up onto the surface of it's varnished wood, the creak of her weight being applied to the wood one of the only things you could here until. He moved.

The Soldier was fast, he closed the distance from the long room and Jinx was shocked by his approach, she made a couple of quicker steps forward so that she wasn't backed into a corner and all she could really go on was shine of his blades moving around, throwing her off. She tried to read them as best she could and as he was basically next to her poised to strike she made her defence based on what she had. Holding her sword so that her blade was pointed directly at the floor, both hands over her head as the Captain performs a dual horizontal strike to her neck and belly, both blades clashing with her long one. She quickly took a step back and brought her sword around from the right, clashing with a dual overhead strike from the opposition, his swords bouncing off and arms sent straight back into the air. It was Jinx's opportunity to strike back; she crouched low and brought her Katana down the left side of her waist bringing her arms up she performs an upwards vertical strike, slightly tilted to the right. However when her arms moved over her line of sight, she had nothing to clash with - almost like in slow motion she saw the Armoured Captain had made a little distance and was crouched in a ready-to-pounce position with both arms spread out, Katana pointed towards her. Jinx's momentum had already decided her fate as her Katana passed overhead - she should have known that with this Captain's speed she had no chance to lay down a strike like this on him.

"AAAAH!" Jinx screamed in pain as she was impaled with the two swords, straight through her Gut. The Captain had dashed forward and thrust both his blades into Jinx, she held her sword overhead, frozen in a fatal position. Fatal for humans. The Captain probably thought he won, he probably would, but not so quickly - she had durability on her side. With the blades stuck inside her, the Captain would figure out soon that she wasn't a Human so she had to act fast, commanding a gadget in her pouch to grow legs and crawl from it - it circled around her hip and jumped onto the Captain's face causing him to jerk back in disgust at the Gadget barnacle crawling over his face. He steps back and pulls his swords with him, Jinx screams again but powers through the pain and brings her arms down to slice through the Captain - he was too quick and had backed up out of range of reach from her blade.

But this was to her advantage, now the Spider can use it's ulterior motive. That was if the Captain didn't deal with it, He grabbed the spider with his right hand and threw it back at Jinx, the spider exploded between them sending Jinx flying back and the Captain stumbling. Jinx's back hit the wall with some force and gasped. The Captain's armour looked less pristine now, but it protected him from the blast.

(Fujitsuboātsu : Gajettofujitsubo) - Barnacle Arts : Gadget Barnacle
Type: Supplementary/Offensive/Defensive
Rank: C
Range: Short - Long
Chakra Cost: N/A (+15 for summoning)
Damage Points: (+30 Spider-cle)(+30 Corrupt-cle)
Description:
The user will perform one handseal and summon what seems to be a generic Acorn Barnacle about they size of a coin in their hand, this isn't a summon and just a barnacle art that the user can use. The user can throw this Acorn Barnacle onto a target and it will permanently bind to it as long as it is solid (Person, Summon, Rock etc), the Gadget Barnacle has a number of effects and can only use one.

Source-cle
This Barnacle is used to bring up sources that may be needed depending on the user and their abilities. For example if the user is a water user then the source-cle will be thrown and it will release a puddle of water that will splash on the ground (can also be used as a C-rank water defence). Also creates an Ink Source if needed, (Puddle of Ink) or a source for Dark Release; The shell is gripped in the palm of the user's hand and the chakra is absorbed straight into the user capable of utilising one Dark Technique with it. Creates a Flame from the opening of the shell if that is a required source (Makeshift Lighter), can be used as a Mist Bomb which creates a small veil big enough to hide a couple of persons.

Spider-cle
Six tendrils will act as legs from the Shell and be able to move around, capable of carrying an item like a Shuriken or Kunai, Scroll or a Message (For RP use in the Ninja World) in a couple of their tendrils whilst the other four are used to move around. The Spider however is also a Bomb, is basically an explosive device that can be exploded at any time, before sticking to a target or after it. It creates a C-Rank explosion with a radius of 2 meters, the explosion isn't enough to kill and only blow the opponent away and cause minor burns. It can either be a Flame Explosion, Wind, or Lightning. The spider-cle moves at the same as their user's base speed.

Weapon-cle
The Acorn Barnacle actually becomes a powerful transformation, taking the shape of a weapon of the user's choosing. They can withstand up to C-Rank Elements before breaking, the barnacle can transform into a pair of weapons splitting the rank into D-Rank each.

Corrupt-cle
The Acorn Barnacle will be thrown at the ground where it will attach to it permanently with it's natural ability too, through this natural ability they have gained a knowledge and sort of affinity to earth of sorts. So the Earth is taken control by the barnacle and they will manipulate it into a 2 foot earth golem, it is capable of communication with the user and attacking with it's mouth and fists - like the Bomb-cle this acts like a C-Rank earth technique.

- These don't have to be summoned, they can already be on the user if stated in the bio.
- Body of the Thoracica and Legs of the Thoracica can be used through a Gadget Barnacle
- Barnacle Community Summons like "Oregon", "Barbaracle" can use Gadget Barnacles from their body.
- To use Varieties like Ink and Dark of the Source-cle then you have to be a user in that form of Ninjutsu
- Using One Gadget Barnacle costs a turn
- Must have signed the Barnacle Contract
- Can only use two different types of Gadget per turn
- Cannot use the same type more than once a turn

Jinx slowly got up, leaning on her sword as she rose up to her feet, stumbling as she raised her guard again. The Captain's visor emerged from the smoke as he dashed through it, his swords behind him and then in front as he started swinging his blades forward, looking like he was rushing and actually trying her now. She must have pissed him off. It was hard for Jinx to retort, she had to move to the left and run around the room so her back wasn't pressed against the wall, deflecting strikes - it was a game of cat and mouse and the Cat kept cutting her off.

The two clash in the middle of the room, Jinx manages to get a head height thrust in which is caught in between the enemy's two blades, they're crossed over each other in an x shape and held to the Captain's left, forcing Jinx's blade to her right. The Captain was strong too, keeping her pinned for now.

"You have tricks up your sleeve, but so do I."

Upon saying this the Captain's swords started to sparkle and this sparkle grew, lightning poured from the metal and crackled between the two. Jinx felt the pressure of her Katana, small vibrations powering through it. A loud shattering noise pierced the air as the Kozui's Katana exploded into pieces, Jinx was left with the hilt and a section of blade. The Captain didn't stop, not allowing Jinx to recover or even properly react. Upon the Katana shattering the Captain's right hand and blade swings over to Jinx, the lightning slicing down across her body. She screams in pain, and suddenly finds herself not being able to move as lightning was channelled through her body and killing the very parasites that made her up - she could feel it spread and it hurt, seizing up her whole body. The Captain then brought his left hand around and stabs his other blade straight into her chest, all the way up to the hilt - lightning shot out from the back of her, destroying the door to the office in the process. Jinx was dying, she could feel it - her eyes flickered and her flesh pulsated.

"AAAAAH!" She gasped hard, "I... Will... Keep...You... HERE!"

The Captain responded by striking her at the side of her head with his right. The Sword was buried in her head up to her left eye, the lightning destroyed the parasites making up her head and brain. She fell limp, her mind was fading - she could've dispersed but... Lena had to escape. Lena... She hadn't seen her in ages, then this happens. She was going to miss causing havoc - she was going to m... Jinx's corpse crumpled to the floor, her right eye stared aimlessly into the distance of the room she was murdered in.

-- Moments Earlier --

Lena nodded before closing the office door with a slam and spins around charging at the window, and diving through the glass. She spreads out her arms and legs as she falls the distance all the way down the the Courtyard, that had now emptied due to the explosions in the District. Lena lands on her left knee and then stands up, she had caught the attention of a couple of Armoured Guards near her that exclaimed in her direction and began to approach, Lena just coolly walked that way.

"Hey, Hands up!"

The First guard approached Lena with his spear in hand pointing it towards her, she moves fast with her left hand coming across her body grabbing the shaft of the spear that met with the blade and pulled it passed her. She spins clockwise so more of the shaft was pressed against her back, giving her more reach as she stretches out her right hand and releases a card which shoots passed the guard holding the spear and hits the other Guard behind him square in the neck - blood spurt from it. The guard next to her got distracted by the card moving passed and didn't realise Lena had let go of his spear and brought her hand around to grip around the dude's neck. She pushed him back, pressing him against the Cargo that she desired. More Guards began to close in on her from the left and right. She peaks to the left, watching him approach but moves her right hand, whipping a card out without looking and launching it at the guard as he approaches - it hits him with enough force to sending him flying onto his ass, card buried deep into his chest armour. Lena grabs the guard's spear with her right hand now, completely crushing his wind pipe at this point and allowing him to slump to the ground. Her body turns to face the guard approaching from the left now, spear in both hands as she gives it a twirl. The Guard tries to thrust it at her upper body but Lena does a sweep using the spear, taking the guard off his feet she rises quickly and impales him from above mid fall, helping him into the ground. She takes out the spear, she had caught the attention of the whole courtyard now.

Lena throws the spear, pinning and impaling a guard to the wall on the other side oft he courtyard, it was a great shot if she did say so herself. An assassin approached her with two Kunai in his hand, he made a daring barrage of slashes high and low but she just backed up dodging back, leaning her body in the correct direction and jumping off the ground, knees to her chest when she had to. She backed into the Cargo and then quickly strafed left as the assassin but his kunai into the wooden box where she used to be. Lena performed a roundhouse kick with her right to the back of the assassin's head, forcing him to headbutt the wood with some force stunning the assassin. Lena hops up onto the top of cargo, using the stacked crates as steps. As she reaches the pinnacle a trio of shuriken skim her with the help of a leaning back twist of the body one manages to scratch her cheek, her inner daemons heal it over soon after. She quickly scans the area using her higher point, there was about 3 guards and 2 assassins around her, the assassins were traversing over the top of other crates and piles of cargo whilst the guards had to approach from the floor.

Lena slips off the crates, sliding down the side of the pile - she plants her foot against the flat surface and pushes, shooting herself forward with as much as she can muster. Raising her left arm up it collides with an approaching guards head, which causes him to spin in mid air and land on his back. Lena slides across the ground as she lands and turns her vision back to the guard she passed, an assassin leaps into view, but collides with a midair - a glyph created in front of him by Lena, his body just splats against it. She stretches out her hand and the glyph disperses into discs slicing the assassin in half in mid air and then slicing through the guard she knocked out on the floor in front. Another guard approaches from behind and tries to send his spear in her back, but she ducks and one of the glyphs that had dispersed from the original passed over lena cutting the spear and the guard's head and upper torso in half.

(Shōkeimoji-Fūton : Neko no Shosa) - Heiroglyphic-Wind Release : Cat's Dance (B-Rank)
Type: Offensive/Defensive/Supplementary
Rank: C - A
Range: Short - Long
Chakra Cost: 15 - 30 (-5 for movement)
Damage Points: 30 - 60
Description:
The user in the air creates a Circular White Glyph out of the air with a green-ish hue, the pattern of the glyph is custom as long as it's Circular and has the Kanji of "Jiyū" within it. When created it spins and grows into view. Even though the glyph is almost transparent it can clearly be seen, it is also solid and acts like a wall, the Glyph can be created vertically or horizontally. The glyph incorporates both offensive properties of Wind, Flat side of the glyph causes blunt damage whereas the edges are sharper than a Katana blade. The user can essentially "grab" the initial glyph by placing their hand on it and throw it like a Shuriken, the maximum size a Glyph can be is 2 meters in diameter and the minimum size is as big as the user's hand.

The Glyph can be manipulated to move vertically or horizontally after creation or by the command of the user later after creation, this costs 5 chakra points. If the user wishes they can "grab" like they would to throw it but because it's moving they will be taken by the Glyph that they are manipulating, they can also just jump on the flat surf it and esentially ride it like a surfboard. The user can if he wants jump from one glyph and create another glyph to perform a quick switch whilst "surfing" as per say, however if another glyph is create of course this would count as another move.

The user can thrust their arm towards their glyph with their hand spread open and the Glyph will disperse into spinning sharp 1 foot mini-glyphs with the Kanji "Kusaru" that barrage from the original. The user can manipulate them to move however he wants, they can float around to defend him or go forth to attack. The Mini-glyphs are very sharp and can easily cut through a thick tree. If used immediatedly after Glyph creation it doesn't count as a move, if it is then it costs a turn.

- Remains active for three turns, Glyphs are self sustained until their turns are up.
- A-Rank version can only be used four times and has a two turn cooldown
- Movement of Glyphs saps 5 chakra from user per turn.
- Max of four Glyphs on the field at a time
- One use of this technique means one Glyph Created
- Must be Taught by LonelyAssassin

Lena ran back towards the Cargo she was standing upon and pressed her back against it, hearing footsteps approached around the corner, the guard came into view and Lena grabbed the back of his chest armours collar and pulled him back bringing her right arm around she presses her thumb to his neck and slits his throat with a now elongated nail her inner daemons created. She lets the guard drop dead as the last assassin leaps over her from above, looking directly at each other the assassin holds three shuriken in each hand, arms crossed over his chest. Lena took steps forward as the Assassin began to lay down the barrage upon her, throwing shurikens in 2's and singles. Lena coolly and passively commanded her cards to draw from their decks and collide with the throwing stars. The two streams of equally deadly barrages chimed and sparked directly in the middle of the range of space between them until the assassin had to land, he had managed to upright himself so he landed in a crouched position. Lena stopped walking forward and there was no activity between them for a moment.

"You ain't escaping."

"..."

Lena didn't say anything to his threat and just stretched out her left hand towards the assassin, who didn't seem to react to that. Probably because the assassin whose head she kicked against the crates earlier had recovered and had threw and stuck her with a tagged kunai. It wasn't an explosive though, it was a binding seal, she was frozen and helpless. The assassin behind her had crawled onto the pile of cargo and got the drop on her. She cursed to herself, letting her guard down so easily, not making sure he was out of commission. She heard familiar screams in the distance.

"See?" The Assassin in front of her grinned. Though his stupid grin quickly changed when the assassin from behind had collided with him, knocking them both rolling across the floor as Songbird had finally swooped down and picked up the assassin from behind and launched him with high force at the other. The bird flew back around to float a few meters above the desired cargo. Songbird launches threads of barnacle flesh and tendrils from it's talons and has them pull together four pallets full of cargo; it then has the threads wrap around the cargo under the slacks of the pallets so that all the tendrils link underneath.

(Fujitsuboātsu : Thoracica no bodi) - Barnacle Arts : Legs of the Thoracica
Type: Supplementary / Defensive
Rank: A
Range: Short (- Mid for Larger Summons)
Chakra Cost: 30
Damage Points: N/A
Description:
A Thoracica Barnacle or even a Acrothoracica type Barnacle will focus chakra into their tentacle like limbs, fuelling them with strength and making them much longer and stronger. The limbs will now be capable of stretching up to 5 meters and grabbing a hold of a target that the user wishes for the summon using this jutsu to. Because this is the fleshy part of the barnacle, it isn't as durable as the shells but because of the chakra put into the limbs it becomes thick and almost like solid muscle (Not making it any less versatile) capable of standing up to the elements.

The Barnacles Tentacles can be grouped up and thickened so that they can be a bit more versatile and create fleshy parts to aid barnacles in battle. For example they can expand their tendrils which wrap around one another to form an arm. Anything can be made like limbs or wings capable of flight, a tail to whip prey - it's limited by the user's imagination and as long as the creation makes sense. The Size is limited to Short Range so can only be a maximum of 5 meters long from any kind of Barnacle source, whether it be an Acrothoracica or a Barnacle Shell or even a Kozui. However if a huge Summon, like "Sprout, The Gravemind" it will create things proportionate to it's size meaning it's range exceeds short range making it mid.

- Can only be used on up to four Barnacles, A-Rank power would be divided between them
- Any Thoracica or Acrothoracica type barnacles can use this
- No Barnacle arts A-Rank and above in the same turn
- This Technique has a two turn cooldown

Songbird begins to take off, pulling the pallets up with him. Lena jumps onto the top of the Cargo and holds onto one of the tendrils as she is pulled up. They begin to rise up passed the building she jumped out of, Lena was looking in that direction as they rose passed it and she saw the outcome...

"J-jinx?"

The Captain who slayed her barnacle companion stood above her, his visor shifted from his victim towards Lena who rose passed the smashed window. Her face was furious, even though it was mainly composed, her eyes were seething with rage and then she went out of view from him.

Songbird began to fly away from Degarashan. The two didn't get too far before the summoners that protected the city started sending their air defences at them, Songbird couldn't utilise it's full speed either carrying all this cargo - so Lena had to defend. Large birds approached, looked like Falcons three of them with riders and were catching up fast. Lena started throwing an array of cards as Tagged Kunai came her way, colliding with them before they could reach the cargo and explode - she cut it close a numerous amount of times but they eventually stopped as the Falcons pulled up along side her.

Screams of attack are heard and Ninja begin to run from the bodies of the large falcon to the wings before jumping onto the cargo to intercept Lena. However Lena had moved to intercept them before they can her, performing a flying kick at one of the Ninja as they try to jump the gap over, she hits him square in the gut and sends him flying off the edge - all is heard is a wilhelm scream as he falls to his death. She lands on the edge of the cargo and turns around with her right arm outstretched, finger gun pointed towards the other Ninja as she fires a wind bullet of high strength condensed proportion.

"Ō ni hyō!!"

The Wind Bullet drills through the Ninja, killing him but going towards his true intended target - the Falcon which the Bullet drills into and then explodes outwards. The Falcon disperses and the other Ninja riding him also plummets to his death. Lena takes out a Gadget Barnacle and it turns into a Spear, seems she liked using spears - the Falcon that was still beside the cargo tried to pull away and fly off to the left to get some distance, but she had her right arm raised aiming it forward and pulled back her left spear arm to line up the shot. Lena gave herself a run up and then launched the spear through the air, throwing her arm and body forward as the Calcite Weapon spun through the air and curved sweetly straight into the Rider's chest, sending him flying off the seat on his falcon and down to the ground below. With no summoner or master around the Falcon dispersed. The last Falcon had moved under and passed Songbird and began approaching from in front, picking up enough speed to collide with the Cargo being pulled through the air. Lena had to stop it.

(Fūton : Ō ni hyō) - Wind Release : Hail to the King
Type: Offensive/Supplementary
Rank: A
Range: Short - Long
Chakra Cost: 30
Damage Points: 60
Description:
The User makes Three Hand seals a forms a small, very pressurized ball of wind no bigger than Golf ball at the end of their Index Finger. They fire it from their finger and it flies across the battlefield at high speeds, though it can still be seen and tracked with the ordinary human eye - it's speed is still very impressive and will reach distances of 5 meters in a second, it's pretty quiet too except for the little zipping sound it makes in close range.

The Attack may seem small but always has an intended target, the ball can shred through thick rock/earth and trees/wood weaker than it until it gets to the destination the user desired for it. Once it does that compressed ball of energy releases as a wind explosion, scattering anything in range of it (5 Meter Radius Explosion) - it would sound like that of a Cannon being fired when the ball explodes. If this Ball was intended to hit an Earth (Or Earth Based) Target, it would shatter the rock and spread it far away, like a fragmentation effect the earth would scatter and could hit the user's opponent. The Damage however would only be half of the original Earth technique's damage, and it would act as an Earth (Or Earth Based Depending on the Target) Technique instead. If this were to hit a Water Technique it would have that also explode in various directions, though this would NOT damage unless it was a Liquid that's not water with effects (Again only half of what the original liquid-based tech damage would have been), for example if it were a sticky liquid or acidic liquid the effects would still apply if it hit the opponent.

If this hits other Energy based Techniques like, Lightning, Wind it would just act like an ordinary Wind Explosion and have no unique effects like above. Fire however, if it hits a B-Rank Fire technique or below it will explode in a large Maelstrom of flames - looking like a giant glowing orange orb in the sky for a moment, the fire would be scattered across the ground and burn anything that touches it.

- Wind Specialists can do this without Handseals, and can be formed at the Tip of a Weapon or infused with a projectile.
- Can also be used to successfully counter or in combination with the Shuriken Shadow Clone Technique (Wind Ball would be fast enough to catch up to Multiplied Tool), scattering the multiplied tools in many directions. This only works for Wind Specialists.
- Must have Mastered Wind to Learn.
- Can only be Taught by LonelyAssassin
- No S-Rank Wind or above in the Same turn this is used
- Cannot be used Consecutively
- Can only be used 4 times

(Fujitsuboātsu : Gajettofujitsubo) - Barnacle Arts : Gadget Barnacle
Type: Supplementary/Offensive/Defensive
Rank: C
Range: Short - Long
Chakra Cost: N/A (+15 for summoning)
Damage Points: (+30 Spider-cle)(+30 Corrupt-cle)
Description:
The user will perform one handseal and summon what seems to be a generic Acorn Barnacle about they size of a coin in their hand, this isn't a summon and just a barnacle art that the user can use. The user can throw this Acorn Barnacle onto a target and it will permanently bind to it as long as it is solid (Person, Summon, Rock etc), the Gadget Barnacle has a number of effects and can only use one.

Source-cle
This Barnacle is used to bring up sources that may be needed depending on the user and their abilities. For example if the user is a water user then the source-cle will be thrown and it will release a puddle of water that will splash on the ground (can also be used as a C-rank water defence). Also creates an Ink Source if needed, (Puddle of Ink) or a source for Dark Release; The shell is gripped in the palm of the user's hand and the chakra is absorbed straight into the user capable of utilising one Dark Technique with it. Creates a Flame from the opening of the shell if that is a required source (Makeshift Lighter), can be used as a Mist Bomb which creates a small veil big enough to hide a couple of persons.

Spider-cle
Six tendrils will act as legs from the Shell and be able to move around, capable of carrying an item like a Shuriken or Kunai, Scroll or a Message (For RP use in the Ninja World) in a couple of their tendrils whilst the other four are used to move around. The Spider however is also a Bomb, is basically an explosive device that can be exploded at any time, before sticking to a target or after it. It creates a C-Rank explosion with a radius of 2 meters, the explosion isn't enough to kill and only blow the opponent away and cause minor burns. It can either be a Flame Explosion, Wind, or Lightning. The spider-cle moves at the same as their user's base speed.

Weapon-cle
The Acorn Barnacle actually becomes a powerful transformation, taking the shape of a weapon of the user's choosing. They can withstand up to C-Rank Elements before breaking, the barnacle can transform into a pair of weapons splitting the rank into D-Rank each.

Corrupt-cle
The Acorn Barnacle will be thrown at the ground where it will attach to it permanently with it's natural ability too, through this natural ability they have gained a knowledge and sort of affinity to earth of sorts. So the Earth is taken control by the barnacle and they will manipulate it into a 2 foot earth golem, it is capable of communication with the user and attacking with it's mouth and fists - like the Bomb-cle this acts like a C-Rank earth technique.

- These don't have to be summoned, they can already be on the user if stated in the bio.
- Body of the Thoracica and Legs of the Thoracica can be used through a Gadget Barnacle
- Barnacle Community Summons like "Oregon", "Barbaracle" can use Gadget Barnacles from their body.
- To use Varieties like Ink and Dark of the Source-cle then you have to be a user in that form of Ninjutsu
- Using One Gadget Barnacle costs a turn
- Must have signed the Barnacle Contract
- Can only use two different types of Gadget per turn
- Cannot use the same type more than once a turn

The Threaded woman runs and jumped from the edge of the Cargo, flying through the air she manipulates the wind and pulls herself towards the Falcon with some speed. As she approached she converts the air into her fist and punches the bird square in the face, causing it to screech as it's neck jerks back causing it to return to the land from whence it was summoned from. Lena watches as the Ninja riding it begins to fall through the air with her, she throws a red card at him which collides with his chest. She spins around and throw a Kunai tied with ninja wire at the Cargo, it sticks to the side and she swings under at high speed the wire wrapping around the underside and sending her up behind it so that she can backflip around and land on the back edge of the Cargo.

"Woo."

Lena collapses onto her back, her chest pulsating as she takes in breaths. It had been a while since she was taxed like this. She wanted to be in Shinramoto. Right now. Home. Alicia...

Shogun Ashikaga adjusted one of the straps of his armor in annoyance as his eyes carefully scanned the map laid out on the the large, carved wooden table in front of him. He mulled the little marks and symbols carefully painted on it, showing the Shogunate's major assets and forces spread across the central Tea Peninsula and outwards. Shifting his gaze northwards a scowl quickly formed on the Shogun's face as he surveyed the approximate extends of Golden Sabbath's domains and to the north-east, the lands of their nominal allies; the White Lotus. Clans that seemed to have won the hearts and minds of their hapless population. It was enough to put Takauji in a bad mood. The memory of the common people was short, it seemed, but he remembered the order and stability of the Freehold. Even at its weakest point the clans feared its might.
Ashikaga's eyes drifted towards the province of Shinramoto. A village there had been causing trouble, resisting his officials, even fighting his men and robbing the Shogunate's resources. His nose scrounged; they were but a symptom of a larger problem. The Freehold had fallen, and the notion of proper order had fallen with it. The clans ruled in its wake, and chaos with them. Even on some of the distant islands of the Kaijuu and Kanashii oceans ninja clans had seized power. It could not go on. Ashikaga had long since found peace in his resolve; the Freehold would be restored at any cost. A ninjas place was in the service of their nation. The Freehold was once the first, second and third priority of the clan ninjas in its service. Takauji swore to himself that it would be so again.

She had finally arrived at the centre of the Shogunate empire, it's village gates heavily guarded as the men cloaked and armoured eyed her suspiciously as Kazumi approached. Stopping before the main gates, the guard held up their arms to show they needed her to stop. Clearly she wasn't getting in easily to talk to the leader of the Shoganate to offer her services. Even though carefully eyeing up the guards, as well as the defences of the other guard patrolling the thick concrete walls, and considering that Kazumi most likely could take them down before anyone could catch her, that wasn't the point. She was here to offer her services and not to make an enemy of herself. She needed patience and restraint on her own behalf.

The guard it seemed wanted to act tough, whether because he thought her weak for being a female or perhaps he was having a bad day, but he demanded to know who she was.
In her soft silky voice Kazumi said

I am from the Great wind Desert and my name is Kazumi Mishima. I have come seeking an audience with the Shogun leader to offer him my services as a talented kunoichi that he may be willing to hire.

The man must have thought her bluffing with her slender frame and the kimono wrapped around her, as he tried to remove the good from her face.

We don't need any women like y-

He didn't even get to finish his sentence as his hand approached Kazumis hood. With one swift movement, she had grabbed his wrist and twisted it bringing him down to his knees as he cried out in shock.
Unfortunately Kazumi had let her pride get the best of her as it had drawn the attention of the wall guards as they immediately put their hand to their waist readying their swords. Fortunately the guards other gate keeper seemed to be smarter, Imo at enjoying the show.

You must learn your lesson Roshi, don't touch women, and they won't touch you back. You never know how they might just hurt you.

He chuckled to himself, loving his own witty banter. He had his hand to his hip ready, incase Kazumi was a threat but spoke with a softer tone with more respect than his comrade.

Please, release my friend here. He may be stupid but surely if you wish to impress or help the Shogun, hurting his men would be counter productive, no?

Kazumi nodded, thanking that this man at least was not stupid enough to assume her reflex for an attack.she really needed to keep that temper in check.

Now if I heard you right, you wish to help the Shogun, perhaps become recognized by him yes?

Kazumi was starting to get annoyed now, seeing this man always talking in questions. One of those people.... but she would have to put up with it if she wanted to play along and get what she wanted.

You are correct. I offer my services to the Shogun as he needs them. Kazumi said while releasing the guards wrist and removing her hood. She straightened out an imaginary crease in her kimono as she stood on the spot.

Well unfortunately, or perhaps fortunately for you, the Shogun isn't seeing anyone right now, and he is rather in a bad mood today. I'm not sure why, but I don't get paid enough to ask those sorts of questions. What I can do is point you in the right direction of what you do need. If you head back towards the village centre there, you'll find a barracks that has all sorts of mission on it, that are being offered by the Shogun to bounty hunters such as yourself. That's where you want to go right?

Kazumi closed her eyes. If the Shogun was in a bad mood as these men said, then it wouldn't be the best day to approach him for a service. Following the men's instructions down to the guild hall and completing a mission would be a good start, at least a way for her name to start to be recognized. Thanking the men and turning her back, Kazumi pulled her hood up and walked back to the village centre as the soft click clack of her geta knocked on the stone.

Just splitting up the post for the story to make it easier to read/time passong etc.



Kazumi had arrived back at the main section of the village, with its streets full of traders, farmers, entertainers and all sorts of bustle and commotion. It seemed to be a truly lively town. Kazumi would note the various guards in armour walking down the street, most people giving them a very generous berth while they continued down, eliciting almost a fear from anyone who try cross them. But it was almost as if it was also mixed with respect? Kazumi was a little confused, did these people fear these warriors or respect and thank them? There's a fine line between governing and oppressing Kazumi thought. Upside they keep the town safe, downside they have a licence to do almost anything they want. It was a scary thought for the people, and almost made Kazumi second guess herself as to why she was here. Did she really want to offer her services to this man? Kazumi shook her head, no she really wanted to do this, she wanted to earn fame as well as the respect of the Shogun.

After wandering through town kazumi eventually found the Guildhall. There were numerous guards out front and on the walls there were numerous posters all with job offerings. Looking at all these jobs they range from very simple tasks to one the particular caught kazumi's eye. Retrieving Hungurian ore from the Land of Fire and giving back to the Shoganate. They must have big plans for the amount they need given how many jobs had been posted for it. Some flyers for particular sights, some for raiding mines and villages. Well it seemed simple enough, but then again, the ore hostels was particularly valuable, even bandits wanting to get their hands on it to either use it or sell it. Kazumi knew this would be a tough job, but it was going to be one of the best ways to make a first impression on the Shogun. Walking inside she simply saw a single man behind a counter with a quill almost as if he was ready for her.

I want to take this mission. What details can you give me?

The fellow looked over the mission from behind his glasses and rolled up the scroll only after stamping it.

rumours have reached Black Ones ears that some merchants that are of the Senju Clan halve been plotting the demise of the Shogun. Apart from being merchants, we assume they trade in wooden crafts and lumber, but they may also have the adsiti9nal support of some ninja if they plan to go through with this heracy of theirs. Find them, and bring them in for interrogation and trial.

Kazumi nodded as she understood her mission. Well it was a start. Spying and interrogation wasn't her forte, however she still had some tricks up her sleeve which she thought might be useful. Backing out of the guild hall, Kazumi went into a local bath house to think about how to go about her task. During the steaming relaxing night, several ideas went through kazumi's head and by the time she got back to her hotel room, she had a solid plan to go with over the next week.

Kazumi had spent several days wandering around the markets, getting to know each of the sellers and their wares. She passed the Senju clan multiple times as well, and as it was assumed, selling mostly wooden high qualityt goods. The senju known for their wooden craftsmanship. To Kazumi however, the merchants and market sellers from the Senju clan goods looked to be regular people, not out of place from the other merchants and peddlers around the district. Though, Kazumi guessed that to survive this long in the territory without having been found out yet they would have to be experts at hiding their business to do with overthrowing the Shogunate. A week later, Kazumi walked up to one of the Senju peddlers and inspected his good.

Ah yes can I help you Ma'am? Ive seen you stop by several times before, anything particular you're interested in?

Kazumi paused, it was time to be tactful.

Hmm well I'm looking for a present for my sister, it's her birthday and I've heard that the Senju are the best at wood crafting! So I thought I would come directly to you. Perhaps this beautiful table
Kazumi said gesturing to the table in the corner.

Ah well yes, we Senju take pride in our work, and have been blessed with great land that produce beautiful trees. Unfortunately we have had to cut back on productions due to certain... reasons..
The seller said while eyeing one of the Black Ones outside his shop that passed the door.

Hmm perhaps this was a chance to gain some info Kazumi thought.

Forgive me for prying, but what reasons were they? Surely wood of this quality and nature would be a blessing to keep?
It was innocent, but inquisitive. Kazumi wondered if he would take the bait. He did.

Well this land once belong to our entire clan, everything from the peninsular up to the great stone land border. But since the collapse of the freehold we were stretched thin. And so after deciding to move down south we took up the land on the peninsular here. But then things got real messy...

He sighed as he went and poured some tea.

The Shogunate took his army and forcefully took some of our lands. Saying that it was for the Greater Good and that he needed the land to be used to start taking back the rest our the empire.
The merchant Senju spat on the floor at the mention of the Shogunate.

This was all very interesting, so they had a motive, but did they have plans to go through with anything. Kazumi was thankful that the bitter rivalry towards the Shogunate was getting this man to talk. She just needed to push a little more.

But what can you do though? Theres not much hope fighting against the Shogunate. They have powerful samurai warriors and Black Ones. Not many people can fight against them. They even kill shinobi!
Kazumi spoke in hushed tones leaning forwards to the merchant. Appearing sympathetic to his voice like layered honey. A skill Kazumi had perfected in her years with her late Husband.

The merchant looked around quickly as he shut the windows to his shop and closed the door. Kazumi was looking at him quizzically as he did so, wondering what was to happen next. She wasn't worried about her safety, but was more focused on getting the information she needed. Sure this merchant was sympathetic to their cause, but he wasnt the mastermind.
I can see your a lady of impeccable taste, with such a keen eye for oppression and the smarts to know what rightfully should be done.
There was a bit of a mad glint in his eyes now as he whispered softly, the lights almost reflecting the mood seemingly dimmed.
Did you know, the Senju are descendants of once powerful shinobi? We actually still have a few of us that practice the art. We have a skill thats been passed down for generations which actually involves this wood you see around you. See we have the ability to actually create and manipulate wood...
We opened his palm to show that a small block of wood seemed to grow from his hand, expecting Kazumi's surprise. Feigning astonishment behind her confident eyes, she placed a hand to her mouth as she gasped.

But, you must be in danger if they are looking for Senju!

Bah, My lady, we hide well, and although I may be only a small part of our clan, those that have greater strength are hidden very cleverly within this village.

Kazumi's eyes narrowed towards the man. It was time to get the final piece of information she needed.

Looking quickly to make sure the windows shut, she whispered to the merchant, each word layered with sugar and honey to cinvince him of her sincerity.

Please, where are they? I wish to give them my support! surely they could use allies and money?

Hmmm
The merchant drew away slightly, perhaps her words werent exactly what was needed?
Well, I shouldn't, we really should keep this within our own clan, but allies are always helpful and no doubt they'll be needed to overthrow the Shogunate.
Kazumi breathed a sigh of relief internally.
Go to this hotel around the corner. Ask for Akito Shizuo, he is the head of our shinobi. He is the one that is co-coordinating the plans.
The merchant pointed towards the east end of the city.

Kazumi bowed her head towards the man and drew her arms together in her sleeves. Hurriedly exiting the shop, she headed towards the hotel in the end district of the city, the lights somewhat dimmer, and almost vacant. There was noticeably less presence of the Black Ones here, Kazumi guessing the reason why Akito had chosen this area. She finally came to a small tea house with a sign above that said Hotel, and walked inside. There was a little old lady dressed in an emerald green and brown designed kimono.
Kazumi's eyes darted back and forth before approaching the woman, making sure that they were alone.

I'm looking for Akito Shizuo?

Almost immediately a kunai was pulled from her sleeve pointing towards Kazumi's throat. Kazumi could have easily disarmed and disposed of the woman, but that was not the part she was playing so far. She needed to convince them a little longer that she was an ally, a rich princess from the Desert that was here to help.

Who are you, who sent you!
The woman demanded.

I come as a friend
Kazumi said.
I've come to offer wealth and help to the rightful owners of this land

The woman eyed her suspiciously for a good minute before lowering her kunai. Had she actually been trained in proper combat, she would have noticed that Kazumi hadn't even broken a sweat by the threat, but perhaps the Old Lady put it down to Kazumi being calm in any situation for a princess.

Taking Kazumi into a dimly lit back room, even by the district standards, the doors opened to let a plume of smoke sleek through into the hallway. Bowing and taking her leave the Old Woman said
This is master Akito, descendant of the Senju warriors. He is who you seek.

Thanking her and waiting for her to leave the hallway before Kazumi turned back towards the man who was barely visible in the smoke, she knelt down at the table and bowed.

Akito Shizuo, I come before you to humbly offer what I can to your aid. I believe the right people should own and be in charge of this land.

Just a little longer...
she thought

The man now that Kazumi had a closer look behind the smoke, was an older male with shaggy black hair to his shoulders, with scrs across his face that had seen many battle. Grizzled and spotted, his stubbe giving him a darker appearance and that of one being tired.

And what, can a princess of a foreign land offer the Senju to help against the Shogunate?

His voice was almost a growl, broken up the smoke, its gruff exterior covering countless battles and fights he had survived. Kazumi almost pitied him. To have fought for so long only to be undone now by a woman.
She stood and bowed once again, taking note of a few scrolls that were strewn about the room.

Well... I can offer you money to hire more warriors or mercenaries, my own soldiers, even as small as they are are highly trained and skilled, trained my my late husband, as well as valuable information on the trading routes between the desert and the Shogunate.

Kazumi started to pace around the room as Akito considered the offer. Thankfully he didnt seem to notice or rather mind her walking around, and slowly moving closer towards him from behind.

That is an interesting offer. And what exactly would you want in retu-

His retort was cut short byt a swift chop to the back of the neck from Kazumi. With a fast strike she had knocked him unconscious as he slumped forwards over the table his pipe clattering down with a soft trickle.
She had the leader of the Senju Shinobi unconcious before her. part of the mission was complete, however she still needed proof of his attack, or plans. But thankfully after a quick browse through the scrolls, she had found what she needed. A strike plan to break through a section of the Shogunates wall that was least guarded. It was good enough. Tucking the scroll into her pouch, she picked up Akito and moved over to the window. A small crack of light was shining through from the mood outside. Thankfully nothing was noticed yet. Gently sliding the window open not to make a sound, Kazumi awkwardly shuffled Akito onto her shoulders as she leaped through the window. Climbing onto the roof afterwards, she figured it would be easier and safer to go along the rooftops to be unnoticed rather than by foot on the ground.
Leaping from one roof to the next proved more of a difficult challenge than she though, making sure she didnt drop the body, last thing she needed was for him to snap his neck and lose her reward.
Thankfully, no alarms were sounded, nobody had noticed and Akito hadnt fallen to his death. Kazumi was standing on the roof next to the Guildhall where she needed to turn the bounty itself in. The building was open 24hours, one of the good things about the Black Ones is that they were always ready for anything. Hoping down into the alley between the buildings, Kazumi edged close to the street corner to make sure no one was coming. A patrol of Black Ones had just passed, though she doubted any of them would give her trouble. Walking out and swiftly into the guild hall, Kazumi placed down Akito onto the chair and looked towards the Black One behind the desk.

I have here a bounty to collect. Akito Shizuo, leader of the Senju Shinobi threatening to overthrow the Shogun, along with evidence of his plans.

Kazumi reached into her pouch and threw down the scroll onto the table. The man behind the desk briefly looked the scroll over before nodding.
Everything seems to be in order. We will be in contact.
With a swift clap, two heavyily armored Black Ones appeared from behind the curtain that was behind the guild master, and took Akito back behind with them. Taking the document that the guildmaster had signed about the bounty, Kazumi head off back to her hotel room to get some rest.

This post marks the start of my Mission containing the following storyboard element:
-Guān Yáo (3)

Summary:
After completing her first mission for the Shogunate, eagerly awaiting her reward, Kazumi asks if any other missions are open to further increase her impression with the Lord. Hearing about some contractors who were deciding to slack off after demanding more pay, Kazumi convinces them to continue with their work.




After arriving back in her hotel and chilling out of a few days, Kazumi had grown accustom to the city of Degarashan, with its charm of an expanding city state. Although some may think of it as oppression or a hostile hold on the city, Kazumi could understand the determination of wanting to grow the city and expand ones region of influence. Still yet to hear back from the Guild Master about the completion and payment of her previous mission, Kazumi decided to go ask if there was an update. Sure it had been less than a week, but she was eager to meet with the Shogun face to face to talk with him.

It was a brisk morning with a slight chilly wind that swept through the city when Kazumi woke up. The breeze being brought in from the great ocean across the peninsular was almost as cold as the Shogun's grip on the city, its citizens rugging up with warm clothes as the winter season was coming in. There were some clouds on the horizon that looked ominous to Kazumi, whether they were signs of the harsh rain to come or whether dark days were ahead with little sunlight, only time could tell. Before she knew it, Kazumi was already infront of the guild hall where the bounty missions were handed out, and where Kazumi had already handed in one mission prior. Once again it was someone different she didnt recognise from last time, but then it dawned on Kazumi, it could be someone who was simply great at disguises or changing their appearance each day. As she entered and took her shoes off she looked over towards the job postings as the guild master made some tea. It seemed he was in good spirits this time.

Back again I see? We could use more warriors of your skill, are you sure you don't want to join the Black Ones?

It wasnt the first time he had offered her to join the Black Ones, but she didnt feel comfortable joining a military when she still had duties back home.

I'll be fine for today thank you, however I am always happy to lend help to impress the Shogun. I see youre having trouble with a few contractors here...

She tore a job off the board that advertised;

Reward;
Several contractors hired through out the city for the Great Shogunate have stopped working.
Taken on to build specific tasks, they have stopped and demanded an increased pay after negotiations already being signed.
Convince them by any means to finish their jobs.


Kazumi could convince a few slouches and lazy greedy foremen to get their worker force back into it. It couldnt be that hard right?

Ahh I see, an easy one today huh?
He said with a wicked grin. Something was wrong here, what else could it be?
Well good luck with this one heh heh heh....

It didnt bode well for Kazumi as he finished up signing the document and she head out towards the first sight. It wasnt too bad, a little walk to the south side of town, there was a man who was meant to use his team of 5 men to set up a guard checkpoint on the lower edge of town for visitors to check in and out of. When Kazumi arrived they were sitting around eating and playing cards.

May I speak to who ever is in charge here?

Without even looking up, one of the oldest with a greying beard, brown shirt and hardhat smoking a cigerette said

Yea whadda ya want?
Clearly a man with great manners.

Well I have come to see why you have stopped work? You've signed a contract, and you must complete this job by the end of the week. But all I see is the steel foundations and skeleton of the building...

She gestured to the half complete design.

Looking up towards her and seeing her beautiful stature in a pure white kimono he snorted and said,

Look yuh majesty, but we aint doing this till we are getting paid more. We heard that the Shogun has gotten more money comin in, so we are gonna renegotiate...

A small furrow appeared in Kazumi's brow as he disrespected her with the way he talked and addressed her, clearly in contempt.

I'm going to give you one chance to apologise and then to continue on with your work, otherwise you're not going to be working for a while...

He snorted at her suggestion.

Pfftt well why dont you get someone who actually matters and then Ill talk about continuing the job....
He then proceeded to call her a word that wouldn't be appropriate to be repeated.

That was it. He had crossed the line. Kazumi took one step forward, a little more forcefully than she meant to, cracking the earth underneath her foot each time she walked closer to the man.

This now got his attention with the rumbling of her steps, while the other men scattered, taking cover behind some materials.

Oh you need me to boot yer ass away huh? Koton!
He spoke ninjutsu, not something that bothered Kazumi but she could see why this job wasn't takens traight away, it seemed that these men were fighting for their stupid renegotiation. But they wouldnt get any sympathy from Kazumi.
He grew a steel pole from his arm that extended towards Kazumi intending to slam into her and push her away.
CRASH!!
Kazumi simply waved her hand infront of the steel coming towards her, enhanced by her strength pushing it down by her feet as it smashed into the ground.
Why you.... Jairu Hausu Rokku
Steel pilars erupted from the ground around Kazumi as she walked, forming a prison around her. Kazumi didnt even pause to pull the bars apart like paper, stepping through it towards the older man.
Wh- What are you??
With one punch directly to his chest, he was sent flying into the materials where his workers were hiding. She could definitely feel a couple ribs break underneath her fist perhaps she took it a bit overboard....
Turning towards the other workers she squinted putting on her most menacing face she could saying,
Make sure this project gets finished. Understood?

They all nodded furiously not wanting to get anywhere near her or suffer her rage.

Heading back towards the guild hall, Kazumi dusted her hands off, wondering how many other contractors would be stupid enough to want to put off their work after hearing about this incident.
Stepping into the building the guild master (once again in a new face) called out to Kazumi,

Already finished for the day huh? That was a quick one. Are you sure you dont want to try another while youre here?
he said gesturing to the board.

N- No, I'm fine. They should finish the southern town checkpoint on time. I'm going to head home... theres some things I need to think about.

Understood. The Shogunate thanks you for your service. You shall be adequately rewarded if they finish their job on time.
With that, he stamped the contract off as Kazumi headed out the door. She had acted recklessly and also endangered the mans life. Sure he had attacked her, but she didnt need to lose her cool for it, he was beneath her and she needed to remember to keep her cool to give the impression for the shogun.
It was time to go home, cool down, and take a bath.

This post marks the start of a mission using the following (custom) storyboard element;

-Find out about your heritage (1)

Summary;
After heading back to her room, Kazumi finds a letter addressed to her informing her to meet someone. Suspicious but curious, she follows the instructions to meet a man called Ortega who reveals Kazumis true identity and heritage.




It had been a long day of exploring the city once again collecting information and storing it in the back of her head, little nooks and cranny to hide, people of importance, hideouts and where local thugs for hire gathered. Reaching her room Kazumi wanted nothing more than to have a bath, and to relax for the rest of the night.
As she entered her room, there was something off, she had turned off all the lights to her room however the lamp next to the new had been switched on. On her pillow there was a small envelope. Who had been in here? Was this a trick? If they had access to her room surely this mustn't be a trick? If it was a robbery then the room would be a mess as they looked for stuff. Possibilities ran through her mind as she took the letter and opened it carefully. It was a plain unmarked envelope with no discernable markings. Inside was a small hand written note.

You have started to make a name for yourself. It is time to find out truely where you come from.

Midnight, come to the single tree in the muddle of the eastern park, and I will reveal who you really are.

R.O.


Kazumi was intrigued. She didn't have much memory before meeting her husband. She was only a teenager when she arrived at his dojo, collapsing due to exhaustion. Apparently she had no memory when she came too and Heihachi simply took her in and cared for her and the rest was true love. Who was she before Heihachi?
Did she need to know? Did she want to know? These questions flew around her head as she looked at the clock. Well she had 3 hours to decide before she needed to meet this person.

When the time came, Kazumi went to the specified park and hid out ontop of a nearby rooftop looking down at the park. There was no one there this time of night, and scanning around Kazumi couldn't sense any presence in the park either. Hopping down and carefully approaching the park, she walked under the tree. She barely arrived when a voice from the other side of the tree called out to her.

You are here, it is time to return to the order.


B-But... What are you talking about?

Princess Kazumi please listen, My name is Ricardo Ortega, and I am an acquaintance of your parents. I worked with them before their death, and before you were hidden away. Before you arrived at the Mishima dojo, you were part of a secret organisation that has tried to keep balance and peace in this world for as long as there has been fighting. You heritage is with us, the Order of Assassins. You parents were part of us, your parents parents, back several generations. The night you arrived at the Mishima Dojo was no mere accident. The base where your parents were at was attacked by our enemies, and though we have no clue at who betrayed us, we had to secure your survival, as you but an innocent child at the time. But now, with you actions and forcing yourself in the spotlight, it is time to return to the Order. You don't have to give us an answer right now, we will contact you the next time we need you.
What say you, will you heed our call?

Several emotions and questions were racing through Kazumi's mind. She had lived in a secluded community, and trained in various ninja activities, but she no idea that this was because some secret order... Thinking back on her childhood though, there were some signs that she couldn't pick up on as a child that she could recognise now. The special emblem, the comings and goings of cloaked messengers, the funerals of people she didn't know, and the teachings of an ancient philosophy she had no idea about or how it related to her.

I.. But....Who are our- I mean my enemies? Who do I know who to trust or who to look out for?

A smile was barely visible over his thin lips.
Quite simply, our enemies are everywhere, and they are everyone. They are men who oppress those less fortunate than them, those that abuse their power and assert their dominance and will over the weak. We fight anyone who will enforce their will onto others. The have many faces and name, and can be anyone, but the main group we fight, call themselves The Templars. They use any means, money, power, chakra to force the world to bend to their will. and we are the cloaked shield that prevents them from taking control.

It was like little pieces were fitting together for the first time, her parents, her teachings, her destiny and what she had to do. She was no assassin, but if it was simply a title to defend the weak and poor then she would carry this title. She always had a strong sense of justice and freedom, presumably now, thanks to this creed from this Order.
Clasping her hands together and bowing before Mister Ortega, she spoke

I will accept this new destiny, this new direction to take. I will be here when needed to be called upon.

Ricardo bowed as he spoke, handing her a medallion and parchment before disappearing into the shadow of the tree again

Excellent, then expect a message within a week. We may have a job for you in this city itself. Untill then, take this as your proof of our organisation and study our creed.

Looking down at the medallion, it looked almost to be like an upside down V, and reading the parchment it had upon it

"Stay your blade from the flesh of an innocent."

"Hide in plain sight, be one with the crowd."

"Never compromise the Brotherhood."


While this answered some of her questions, Kazumi still had a lot to ponder about what to do with this new information.

This post marks the start of a mission using the following (custom) storyboard element;

- Negotiate for or speak on behalf of your clan (3)
- Put the Clan’s interests first

Summary;
After doing some work for the Shogunate Kazumi believes that for the greater good of her clan, she must secure an alliance with the Shogunate. She approaches one of the officials for a meeting and speaks on behalf of her clan to pursue an alliance between her clan and the Shogunate.




Kazumi had a lot to think about over the next couple days. So much had happened that it was almost a bit overwhelming, that she needed a break to rest and consider what to do next. She was getting daily reports about what was going on in her village, trying to balance helping out and impressing the Shoguante to show her worth, as well as figuring out her position in this new Order. She went to one of the private bath houses to have a soak and to ponder what the best course of action would be, taking herself out of the equation. If she was to be realistic about it, there was no one strong enough to defend her village while she was out here trying to make a name for herself, leaving the village defenceless. She understood a bit more why Heihachi was always staying around the desert lands so at least he could be home as quick as possible to defend it. Thinking about the resources that the Shogunate had, with his mighty army, perhaps she might be able to take advantage of this some how, to benefit her clan village. She already had started making an impression on them completing a few of their bounty hunting missions for them, maybe a few more might be able to convince them to help her out, perhaps station a few of their guard around her village for some protection. Sure, it would mean that the missions would be more for the clan, but at least they would be safe. After a long soak and deciding on her course of action, Kazumi went home to get ready for her request to meet with the Shogun.

Approaching the Town Hall, Kazumi dressed in her fabulous white gown, dressed to impress and catching many looks from the public, she approached the leader for the day, who was busy behind the desk writing down memos and scribbling through pieces of parchment.

Catching Kazumi's eye, she looked up towards her, and straightening his tie, her aura and radiance commanding his attention he spoke

Yes, ma'am how can I help you today?

My name is Kazumi Mishima, of clan Mishima Zaibatsu, and I wish to have a meeting with the Shogun to discuss terms of alliance.

She was sharp and to the point, there was no point beating around the bush or mincing words with this administrator. She had the power in her voice that she knew what she wanted, almost frightening the poor man as he responded.

U-Unforunately the Shogun will only meet with officials after it been processed in a prior meeting. I believe mister Sheng is free if you'd like to walk down the hall and enter room number 4?
His voice trailed off as he continued talking, sounded disappointed to decline her.

Pausing a moment to think about her response, whether she would be better to thank the man of walk off, she smiled softly and said simply
Thank you
Before walking down the hall. As she walked off she could hear a sigh of relief from the man, probably thanking that she didnt berate him or make it a hassle like many others had done that day.

Inside the room was a rather large portly man with a thin moustache who looked like he preferred sitting at a desk rather than going out who was reading through some papers as Kazumi entered. He didn't even bother to look up or address her as she entered, and she sat down opposite him.

Yes how can we help you today please... He said in a drall unimpressed voice still not bothering to look up.

I've come to arrange a meeting with the Shogun to discuss an alliance

He snorted still writing down in his papers.
Unfortunately the Shogun isnt taking any requests for alliances right now and only those that...deserve... to be seen by him will be seen by our leader. He was making a big mistake that he would come to regret as he spoke down to Kazumi. She let it slide for now, she would get her revenge shortly.
Who am I speaking to as I may note that we finished our meeting?

Kazumi Mishima of Mishima Zaibatsu She put a bit more command in her voice this time, her authority known that she was someone he should have taken seriously and someone who deserved more respect than she was currently getting.

He almost froze and his pen jutted to a halt and dropping his papers as he looked over them at her glowing radiance. She sat there, unphased by his rude tart behaviour, and sweat began to accumulate in his forehead creases.
My Lady, I-Im sorry, I was not made aware of who I was speaking to. Even though you've just arrived, we have heard of your deeds so far. How you captured the Senju insurgent and the work you've done for our glorious Shogun...
That was better, finally some respect she was getting and finally getting recognised for her work.
However.... unfortunately it still doesn't change what I said before... He was being sincere, that he couldn't change the Shoguns mind.
However, I think I do have an idea of how you may be able to get an audience with the Shogun to approach him with the idea of an alliance.
Kazumi was eagerly listening now. Even is this worker drone couldn't organise an alliance for her, at least he had information about how she could accomplish such a goal, and was not to be dismissed.
See, while the Shogun isnt taking meetings from foreign diplomats currently, he is meeting with anyone who is shown to be worthy enough of meetings. Anyone who has earned his favour by completing bounties, receives these medallions, as marks of honour from him. If you get enough of those, I reckon he would meet with you to thank you personally, and thats when you could ask him about an alliance.

Hmmm...

It wasnt a bad idea. True enough, she had only completed a few missions for the Shogun, and could be seen still as a bounty hunter, but earning enough of these medallions could earn her enough pull to get a meeting with the shogun to hire some guards for her village.
He looked over hopefully towards her, wiping his brow.

Very well, I will continue to do these missions for the Shogun and claim these medallions in the hopes of gaining an audience with him to speak about an alliance between our factions. Thank you for your time today.

Standing and bowing before exiting out the office room, she carried herself gracefully out of the building gliding over the floor with her gown flowing behind her with thoughts running through her head. It was time to keep hunting for the good of her clan.

This post marks the start of my mission involving the following story board elements:
- sniff out a desenter (2)

Summary:
While trying to improve relations between her clan and the Shogunate, whispers and rumours start appearing that Kazumi is a traitor and plans to betray the Shogun. To save her and her clans reputation she must find the source of these rumours and put a stop to them.




Kazumi felt uneasy as she walked the streets, as if all eyes were on her as she walked down the street heading back home. She could swear that people were either avoiding her or trying to avoid her eyes. Was she being paranoid, or was there some evidence behind her superstition, her gut instinct
Usually she wouldn't bother about the public's relations to her, but considering that she needed to improve the relations of her clan and her clans image she needed to be a beacon of light and a shining example of her clan. Perhaps it was time to go talk to one of the information brokers she had learnt of while skulking around the market. There were very few of them, making them hard to track and meet but this was important and Kazumi needed to find out what was going on.

That evening Kazumi headed down towards the market place as it was shutting down for the day, hovering on a rooftop scanning the bazaar for any shady activity or anyone suspicious. Eventually someone caught her eye. A slinky thin fellow who always made sure to have his face hidden and covered while he was moving about the market. She hadn't seen him all night until now and he didn't look like a merchant. Her suspicions were confirmed when she saw him, a small thin creep, hunched over as he crept around, poking his head into every crate he could find, stopping now and then for a conversation with a few of the less honest looking market traders, even watching a few of them exchange small purses, which Kazumi assumes must have been sacks of gold. Biding her time and creeping along the top of the roofs edge, she followed him along till he was leaving, as he swiftly left to exit through a dark alley, and it was then she struck.

Thwump!

A soft thud rang through the dark alley as she landed on top of him.

H-hey get off me!!

Ripping his hood off, showed a pale young man with blonde hair and a scar across his left eye.

Whats the big idea jumping on me!?! Get off!!

He tried to scramble under Kazumi but with on hand pinned on his throat and the other on his chest, in a clenched fist, she knelt on top of him poised to strike.

Do you know who I am?

After a quick glance up at her face, even in the dark he could see the pale moon reflected off her flawless skin. He swallowed the lump in his throat that beginning to rise.

Y-Yes...Oh Dear...

You know what I can do then...

He nodded glancing down at her fist in his chest.

She pulled her fist back a little bit saying

I can let you go, if you give me some information...

They're in the ruins of Chungsu, but theyre only spirits or apparitions or something I think. There was a huge barrier so I couldnt get through it. It was hard enough escaping those undead things!

Kazumi looked at him with a puzzled face..

What? The people spouting rumours about my clan are doing it from Chungsu?

O-Oh... I perhaps maybe said more than I should have....

Kazumi raised one eyebrow, storing that strange information for later.

But I know who is spreading those rumours! Its a new Clan in town, Hoki or something I think, they hired me to spread them around, and theyre working for the Senju! You'll have to talk with them!

Kazumi pushed her fist a little more forcefully into his chest while closing in on his throat

B-But for the right price I could talk to them for you, I could convince them to leave....

Kazumi drew her fist back and punched it down hard, however moving it to the side, punching a deep hole next to his head.

O-Or I can just stop and you can let me go?

Kazumi whispered very softly so that he had to listen intently.

If I hear any more rumours about me or my clan, I will find you again, and I will not pull my punch.

Releasing his throat, Kazumi activated a smoke bomb and jumped upwards back onto the roof of the building overlooking the alley leaving the informant still laying there calming down from his panic attack after his run in with Kazumi.

Well that takes care of the rumours around here that were starting dissent towards my clan. But what are the other rumours he was talking about, in the Ruins of Chungsu? They sound dangerous, and worth looking into, especially these undead things....

Thinking to herself, while satisfied that she had stopped the rumours hurting her relationship with the city, she moved to the edge of the city, and then started heading towards the Ruins of Chungsu.

Star-1 emerged from a sea of tall grass and stepped onto the road leading to her next destination: Degarashi. She was joined by four other Stars who were nowhere to be seen, concealed within her form. If the city turned out to be as secure as they heard, then not having to keep track of extra people would simplify things quite a bit. For the time being she would be known as Akane, a young woman eager to serve the Shogunate the best as she could. Making her way through the city, she felt right at home among the hustle and bustle. People of all kinds assembled here to do business and the city flourished because of it. To think that all of this was part of Ashikaga’s domain. She had to see more.

The distinct, dark armor of Black Ones patrolling the streets made their presence very well known, both to Akane and the city’s residents. These walking billboards constantly reminded everyone of who was in charge and created an air of unease around them which was likely just what they wanted. So, rather than avoid them and appear suspicious, Akane approached the nearest guard and asked about working for the Shogunate. She got some detailed directions to a representative and went on her way. However, something was brewing in the city. The smell of roasting meat, handmade decorations, kids in horrible costumes. It was that time already. Conqueror’s End! Akane happily roamed the streets looking for something to do, forgetting all about the reason she was there in the first place.

Ah, we're here Boit..

With his eyes, Vegeta scans the surrounding area's looking for the best place to emerge. Of course coming up right in town might make for a scene, there were plenty of guards and whatnot around. This country side, with it's rural farms and the Shogun's loyal minions. They seem like they'd love to meet Vegeta's herd of zombies. With him and Boit on the move, he tunnels up and forwards, making a ramp the dead could easily walk up. The opening would be huge, and would allow the undead to funnel out and wander across the lands heading towards the city. This was gonna be great, the undead would terrorize the Shogun and perhaps even make his people lose faith that he could keep them safe from the perils of the world. This was revenge for GS, how dare this man take bounties out on them?! Encourage shinobi to raid their lands and take their lives?! He would let the undead feast upon the Shoguns people, terrorize the countryside and wander into the city, let the Shogun see what it's like to be hunted for a change.

Vegeta has Boit exit the tunnel then begins to back track north. Once at the edge of the land, Geets jumps uff of Boit and slams his hands to the ground. From left to right all along the border, the ground would raise up short range in width and 20 meters tall, this would stop the zombies from being able to leave the LM, and would help to steer them where Vegeta wanted. He quickly ninja hops up to the top of the 20 meter tall wall he had created, and on the top he manifests 10 fireballs in a circle in front of himself. He would launch these 10 spread out in a 180* arc facing south, sending fireballs in all directions. The brightness of the fireballs would catch the zombies eyes, and steer them towards them. Vegeta wasn't done yet though, there was still more work to be done in Operation: Payback's a Bitch. Putting the flaming sword back into it's hilt, Vegan as he was calling himself pulls Lucy back out, her bloody and mucked up barbed wire looked ready for more zombie skulls. Geets would hop back down the wall once he was sure they were funneling out the tunnel and heading where he wanted, and atop Boit the head back north..

This post marks the beginning of my (our) mission using these storyboard elements:
-Negotiate for or speak on behalf of your clan (3)
-Choose between what is right and what is easy (3)

Summary: Rumors of zombies on the horizon threaten the city. Akane sees this as an opportunity to negotiate an alliance between Kaizen and the Shogunate. They refuse to ally with a clan despite her arguments. Akane finds the Shogunate’s cruel selfishness disgusting and is prepared to abandon the city when is dawns on her that the zombies could spread to Kaizen’s landmarks if not handled properly. She puts the alliance on hold and offers her assistance to prove the clan's worth.



Akane was on ladder hanging streamers on a storefront when she felt the festive energy of the city dying down, replaced by worried chatter. She hopped down and listened. People claimed to have seen the summoning corps mobilizing. It meant Degarashi was under attack. An enemy of the Shogunate? She could use this. She ran through the streets, past Black Ones trying to calm concerned citizens, past parents dragging children away from their friends. She overheard talk of zombies and fire like it was the end of the world. What the hell was going on?

She was about to run into the Shogunate representative’s office but a guard barred the way. “Stop! What’s your business here?” “I heard there was an attack on the city. I want to help.” “No need. We have everything under control. Move along.” Just then, someone inside called out to the guard and he rushed in. Akane slipped inside as well and saw a Black One with a phone to his ear, writing things down. “Get more patrols to the northern border. They’re saying walking corpses are streaming out a hole in the ground and they can’t--...who’s this?” He pointed at Akane who managed to slink over to the side of the room. “Nobody. She’s just leaving.” The guard tried to grab Akane who flipped over his head and landed near the Black One. “It sounds like you have quite the mess on your hands.”

The guard came at her again and she thrust a badge in his face. “Former officer of Keishi’s MWPSB, Akane Tsunemori at your service.” Sitting on the table, she slid the badge to the Black One who examined it, recognizing the crime department’s insignia. They knew she was one of them, an advocate of the Freehold’s return. He handed her the badge. “Lead investigator, huh? So, what can you do alone?” She leaned in close to him, smiling confidently. “Oh, i’m not alone. You see, me and my compatriots are very capable ninja. We’re professionals at what we do. It’s clear that Ashikaga’s military forces are limited. He hires ninja, sure, but they’re unreliable aren’t they?” A voice from the phone reports about zombies spreading in other Shogunate landmarks. He was sweating under his armor. Akane pulled out a sheet of paper and a pen. “Accept an alliance with my clan, Kaizen, and we can get you through this crisis”

The Black One steeled himself and pushed the paper away. “No. We are not so foolish as to ally ourselves with a lowly clan. Ninja are meant to serve. Any semblance of society they attempt to create is a farce compared to the Freehold.” Akane stood up and banged the table with her hand. “You’re going to let your pride get in way of protecting people supporting the Shogunate?! What if your enemies destroy your farms? Invade the city? What then?” “We will continue to survive and thrive under the banner of our mighty leader, standing above all clans. Now go. I don’t have time to listen to fairy tales.” “Grr..!”

Akane stormed out of the building, furious. She couldn’t believe that pile of shit. She offered them ninja on a silver platter but they wouldn’t listen. Granted, she was only concerned with taking whatever resources she could from the Shogunate to keep her clan secure. Who cares what happens to the people? She jumped up onto a building. By now the streets were almost deserted. She could see hordes of zombies spreading across the land like ants and giant animals only managing to keep them from the city. At this rate, the zombies would spread more and more until they reach Fuyuan, Wonju, and Kurikita. She couldn’t let that happen.

Landing in front of the building once more, Akane entered more composed than earlier. “What are you still doing here?” “You want mercenaries right? Then hire me. I’ll save the alliance talk for later. People’s lives are at stake here.” “...that’s true. I'm here to grant opportunity. Look at this.” He points to a noticeboard beside him. "For the completion of various assignments our faction offers these useful artifacts called service insignias“ She reads a notice explaining all this and smiles. “So if i can prove my clan’s worth, an alliance might not be a fairy tale after all?” ”...It...may be considered.” “Brilliant.”

Continued.
Original post.

Note: Ending first mission with this post and I'll transition into another one as my initial objectives were completed.

Airdrop 1
The Razing of Degarashan!


[video=youtube;lDnva_3fcTc]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lDnva_3fcTc[/video]​

( Sandāu~ēbu ) - Thunderwave
Type: Tool
Rank: A
Range: Short - Long
Chakra: N/A ( - 5 per turn when used )
Damage: N/A
Description: Thunderwave is a basic chest plate outfitted with a surround sound speaker system, and a microphone. It can be used to play music or make noises more audible than normal similar to a karaoke machine. It is able to produce sound louder than most techniques or the clashing of techniques and can be much louder than the user or opponent can scream. In essence it can act like the (Utsusemi no Jutsu) - Empty Cicada Shell Technique passively at all times being louder and stronger than even that basic technique. It comes pre-loaded with all of the wielder's favorite songs. In battle it can be used to play theme music or it can make the user louder as it has a built in microphone system connected to the speaker system.
The primary use of Thunderwave as mentioned above is the ability to play music with the offshoot of this being the ability to cancel sound waves with sound waves while playing music. This is similar to the Scientific Ninja Tool: Shijima and works like a noise-cancellation speaker. The system can emit a sound wave with the same amplitude but with inverted phase also known as antiphase to the original sound. The waves combine to form a new wave, in a process called interference, and effectively cancel each other out. This effect is called destructive interference and is able to nullify sound techniques in equal rank. The sound can encompass a short - long range area around the user being louder the closer to the user the people who can hear it are and due to this it has a dampening system as to not harm the users ears or cause them any undue problems. It can be fine tuned to look different depending on the wielder's appearance or preference.
Note: Sound techniques can only be canceled once per turn three times per battle.
Sado was high above the city of Degrashan. Now was the point of no return, he was going to be branded a warmonger from this point forward. He both knew and accepted that. There was only one way to hold off Takauji Ashikaga's expansion and forward march and that was by force. He was paying others to do his work for him. For months he had tried to snuff out the Golden Sabbath and their affiliates. The coming atrocity was brought upon himself the day he believed himself bold and strong enough to suffer no repercussions for placing bounties on Sado and his allies. He was firm and steadfast in his belief that this was what he had to do as the music began to swell and course all around the area. It went on for miles up to long-range in all directions piercing through the landmass and into the ears of every single person be they average citizens or Hangurian Black Ones. Sado assumed that Takauji Ashikaga was down there somewhere.
The music didn't fit the situation. It was completely opposed to it. The upbeat and to a degree annoyingly cheerful lyrics didn't meld well at all with what was about to happen. The music played constantly and there was no stop to it as it forced it's way into the ear of every single person in the land however like the Empty Cicada Shell technique it came from multiple angles, not having a direct location of where it was emanating from. Sado was more than one-hundred meters in the air as he finally left the oobleck go releasing the control he held over the substance momentarily.
What came next was a high pitched whistling noise high above the city as the cage of roughly fifty or so undead rocketed downward toward the ground. The noise was caused by drag and air pressure whipping against the stone and oobleck. Then finally with a massive and loud crashing noise in the heart of Degrashan the earthen cage and oobleck slammed against the ground.
It did so with such force that the earthen cage shattered into splinters of stone and rock as the shrapnel was carried outwardly in all directions for about twenty meters. The oobleck absorbed all of the force, stress and kinetic energy becoming solid for a moment shielding all of the undead from the pressure of slamming to the ground at terminal velocity.

( Ekitai: Baindo ) - Oobleck Release: Bind
Type: Supplementary
Rank: A
Range: Short - Long
Chakra cost: 30 (+5 to make it solid again)
Damage points: 60 (+10 to coated technique)
Description: The user molds a mixture of water chakra and earth chakra forming a mass of Oobleck, or manipulates an already existing source of Oobleck. If creating the source, he must perform the boar hand seal allowing him to form the source of Oobleck into projectiles, nets, waves, tools or weapons. If he's manipulating an already existing source he is able to merely use slight motions of the hands to form sources into the above mentioned items.
As he manipulates the Oobleck he coats it in chakra giving it shape and making it retain a form until the user decides to release the chakra coating at that point the Oobleck loses it's solid properties covering the opponent in a thick gooey liquid that can impede movement making the opponent slowed due to the excess weight of the Oobleck as well as it's sticky properties. This will half the opponent's speed as long as the oobleck remains on the opponent. The user can also manipulate the Oobleck to constrict the opponent hardening it to a point that it can hold a person in place indefinitely unless defended adequately. This is done by calling upon the chakra inside the oobleck causing it to increase the viscosity of the substance to the point where it's a solid by creating an internal force that acts upon the oobleck. The aforementioned process is the same one that keeps the oobleck solid until impact. If the opponent tries to struggle against the oobleck that force is enough to activate the properties of oobleck without the need of chakra manipulation.
The user is also able to coat objects, constructs, other techniques, and weapons in a thick layer of oobleck or feed oobleck itself into the molding and mixture of the technique itself. This layer holds all of the properties of oobleck and makes hits dealt with the coated object, construct, technique or weapon stronger, and more devastating. This is exactly like the (Ekitai: Yoroi) Oobleck Release: Armor technique but instead of creating an armor for the user it is created for one of aforementioned things. When solid, liquid, or semisolid techniques are coated with a layer of oobleck they stand up to force, stress and elements oobleck is strong to as if the coated technique is strong to the opposing technique. However this is true for the opposite as well, if this technique is used to reinforce a technique and oobleck is weak to the element it is clashing with it even if the technique this was used on is strong to it, it will be considered weak to said technique.
Weapons, objects and constructs coated in oobleck become larger with a visible oobleck enlargement such as a kunai being completely enshrouded with oobleck, while techniques only change color slightly to a dull brown and become physically larger in size.
Notes:
The user can only form four constructs with a use of the jutsu But the power will be devided evenly between the constructs
The reinforcing ability will require the use of the hand signal and happens in the same timeframe as the technique it's modifying
The reinforcing ability can be used on oobleck jutsu without the seal, as the user is just pumping more oobleck into the technique to make it larger, and stronger. This also has the added benefit of increasing the rank of the oobleck technique as it becomes a quick combo. This does not work on S rank or Forbidden techniques.
The reinforcing ability can only be used three times per battle
Then with a slippery and suction-like sound the oobleck returned to its liquid state as it slurped and fell to the ground. At first, it would seem to those viewing it as a solid but when there was no more force it would become a liquid rushing outward toward anyone close enough to be covered in the substance. This would slow the average people in the area covering them in a dense, sticky liquid that reduced their speed making it hard for them to outrun the undead.
While this happened the undead began to shamble forth groaning and grunting as they moved slowly and apathetically toward anything that moved. These creatures would twist and writhe as they moved forward spreading outward from the heart of Degrashan moving outwardly through the streets of the town.
The mindless creatures would lash outward and grab at any living thing that moved biting deep into the flesh peeling and scraping portions off as they overwhelmed the average people of the area killing them. If they tried to run away or move away the undead would merely follow slowly and menacingly threatening people regardless of their standing.
As people died due to the damage they sustained from the creatures others would rise up joining the chaos as more and more living beings were converted to undead that lashed outward toward even their own loved ones. Sado would be high in the sky so far above the chaos and calamity that it would be hard for people to pinpoint him but he could sense the things going on below him.
He spoke out toward Salazzle directing her to force more pressure onto the people. Salazzle was hesitant but Sado spoke with an empty voice one that held no emotion in it. It was dark and foreboding. Salazzle was slow to do as Sado instructed her so he spoke again telling her it was okay.

Nevermind. Sit this one out. I understand this is too much for you. I apologize for bringing this upon you.

Sado spoke with the same tone, he realized that Salazzle couldn't bring herself to partake in what he was doing. It was too destructive for her. However, due to his Goliath upbringing, this was almost second nature to him. He didn't care about the people below him that were screaming out for help and being devoured. He was emotionally separated from them as a Goliath warrior. He thought about that as he formed a string of hand seals, his arms turning a repugnant orange as he forced his own poison into the formation of the technique he was using.
Below him about five meters below his feet he concentrated a mixture of water and poison as eventually the two commingled raining down upon the city as orange drops of liquid. This happened soon after the earthen and oobleck cage hit the ground and he would direct it so that the rain didn't touch Salazzle, Lena or her summoning creature Songbird.
As the orange drops rained down upon the center of Degrashan any creature that the water touched would begin to feel the symptoms of the substance. It began as an intense fear that would radiate into their body. It would be instant as the terror picked up swelling inside of their bodies followed closely by hallucinations. For everyone, they would be different. Some would see more undead than there were others would see their loved ones devouring their families and some would even see demonic creatures swarming through the city razing the city.
The rain would continue downward covering the entire city in a layer of orange liquid that would form puddles of the liquid clinging to the clothes of anything found inside its radius. The poison was sticky to the touch more like-tar that rain as each singular drop congealed into a sticky mess of orange and black grime.

(Suiton: Ukojizai no Jutsu) - Water Style: Rain Tiger at Will Technique
Type: Supplementary
Rank: C
Range: Short-Long
Chakra: 15
Damage: N/A
Description: A perception ninjutsu, allowing one to freely manipulate rain infused with the user's own chakra after waving the Bird → Rat → Ox → Monkey → Rat → Snake handseals. The rain falls from rain clouds, formed with the users own chakra. During this technique, the falling raindrops are closely linked to the users senses. When the rain is obstructed by a chakra belonging to someone the existence of the target can be detected. The rain will keep on falling until the user uses the seal to cancel it.
(Dokuton: Doku no Chūnyū) - Poison Release: Poison Infusion
Rank: A
Type: Supplementary
Range: Short - Long
Chakra: 30 (+10 per turn per usage)
Damage: N/A
Description: The user uses his Poison Release abilities and is able to making it more deadly with other jutsus. The user will channel their Poison into a their arms causing their arms to turn into a purplish color. Any physical jutsus (Earth, Water, Steel, Bones, Sand, etc.) is infused with poison and gives the jutsu Poison properties. The jutsu infused with poison will slightly have a more purplish color. The infused jutsu will be mixed with a poison the user has on them making the jutsu more deadly by even getting a small hit with it. The infused jutsu will be able to poison the opponent through contact with the infused jutsu poisoning them. The amount of poison the opponent is injected with depends on the size of the jutsu making bigger jutsus the most deadly while small jutsus will be a small amount of poison. This jutsu cannot be used with energy based elements as they would evaporate the poison before it could be fully infused. This jutsu is fast being able to infuse a jutsu with poison as soon as the jutsu is made or released. And it also grants an additional rank and twenty damage to the technique up to A-rank.

Additionally the user while in direct contact with inanimate water can use their poison chakra to mold that inanimate water source, turning it into a liquid poison this can be done passively alongside another technique just like the infusion ability. Once converted the user can freely and passively control the consistency of the poison hardening it slightly allowing him to walk upon it while others will not be able to do this this is similar to Water Walking but only works for the user. This is the same principle behind the infusion ability but is easier because it is being done upon inanimate water. If an opponent begins to sink into the poison it'll be hard to get out because as the opponent struggles to get up the sticky liquid pulls them down. This source of poison can be used for other jutsu as well such as Poison Creation or other techniques. However it can only support poison jutsu A-rank and below. The max size of the area converted is related to the user's chakra input but cannot transform massive water sources like entire lakes or landmarks without multiple uses. The user must have a liquid poison to use as a template to use this ability.

Note: Must be taught by Korra.
Note: Must know Poison Release
Note: Requires a 2 turn cool down between uses
Note: Each use lasts for the duration of that singular technique.
Note: Cannot be used with jutsu that materialize within 5 meters of the opponent.

(Batto no kage) - Shadow of the Bat
Creator: Howard
Type: Neurological, Muscular, Respiratory
Ingredients and Background: Fear can have crippling effects on a person, it can leave them frozen unable to move, think or act. It can force them to see things, hear things, feel things that just aren't there. Anxiety, paranoia, and panic can force a person to waver or to simply give up, the poison itself revolves around the ability to weaponize fear in people. Shadow of the Bat is a poison that creates the emotional response of fear for those exposed to it. It forces them to see, smell, hear, feel, and taste their deepest darkest fear in great detail and at times to a crippling extent. A lot like the application of Killing Intent but physically so done through poison not chakra. Most of the ingredients manipulate the brain and the mind through something more tangible than genjutsu more deadly and more real causing it to create and send synapses. Some even force the brain to produce chemicals forcefully and without mental consent from the poisoned individual like dopamine.

Shadow of the Bat is a deep smokey orange poison that comes in two forms an orange liquid and an orange gas surrounded in a smokey black aura-like outline. While in it's liquid form it has two constituencies dense and sticky like tar, or light and watery like water. The first consistency is sticky to the touch and will stick to anything it comes into contact with for long periods of time drying out slowly and hardening. When in contact with the skin it breaks down the lipid bilayer passing right on through and entering the blood stream and then bypassing the blood brain barrier for fast and rapid effects. While in it's gaseous state it has a slightly earthy smell like petrichor due to the herbs found in the poison, when inhaled it has an almost cinnamon-like taste if ingested while liquid it has this same taste but no discernible smell. It's base is Dihydroxyphenylalanine an amino acid that is made and used as part of the normal biology of humans it is the precursor to Dopamine in the brain, Carbogen a mixture of thirty percent Carbon Dioxide and seventy percent oxygen, Corticotropin a peptide hormone and a neurotransmitter, Deadly Nightshade (Atropa Belladonna), Conium (aka Hemlock) both ground into a fine syrup, and Irukandji venom. All ingredients that induce; fear, anxiety, paranoia, panic and straight up terror. Each do this in their own way and have specific effects that end up compounding together to create the over all reaction that the poison causes.

Howard is immune to these effects and the poison itself and due to the oxygen found in it he can breathe it as if it were normal air, and even drink it in it's liquid form if he so desires. It is applied to all of his ninja tools and weapons as well as in a small vial around his neck for poison jutsu usage as well as being sealed in his Medical Summoning Scroll. This poison can also be applied to the fingernails to augment taijutsu usage through fingerjabs and the like and teeth for more animalistic applications akin to the injection abilities of a snake through bites.

Description of Effects:

First the hallucinogens Dihydroxyphenylalanine which also allows the body to produce extra dopamine, Atropa belladonna, and Hemlock. These three together create very vivid and very surreal hallucinations as soon as they become active on the opponent. They induce a mental reaction wherein the brain itself brings out it's most base, deepest, darkest fear bringing it to life through various hallucinations with aspects of visual, auditory, and even smell and taste stimuli. The brain creates these sensations by stimulating the parts of the brain related to these sensations. These hallucinations can easily be mistaken for genjutsu as they have a similar application and even seem to be in a similar vein as it but isn't a genjutsu. The hallucinations will seem real, the opponent will be able to, see, smell, hear and taste the object if the situation arises. They can actively interact with the opponent but aren't tangible in the sense that they have physical substance. This can make distinguishing reality nearly impossible making it difficult to fight. To anyone seeing the poisoned person react to these sensations they would merely seem crazy or delusional. These can range from small changes to what the poisoned individual sees to extreme world altering changes.

Inhalation, Consumption or Injection: The hallucinations begin immediately after inhalation, consumption or injection beginning in the same turn.
Skin contact or a wound: The hallucinations are slightly slower starting one turn after being poisoned in this manner.

Next the fear creators, Carbogen, Irukandji venom, and Corticotropin Corticotropin is a peptide hormone and neurotransmitter involved in the stress response. In such a high dose it creates an intense stress on the body making the body feel as if it were under severe physical and mental stress. Carbogen makes them feel as if they are suffocating unable to breathe which along with the Dihydroxyphenylalanine which becomes dopamine once the poison passes the blood brain barrier, floods the brain with dopamine usually dopamine makes you feel confident and happy but if it seeps into the wrong part of your brain, dopamine will arouse feelings of terror and dread. This is what happens, the brain is overtaken by this forced production of chemicals and the body responds with intense fear, fear that makes thinking harder and slows down the natural thought process. Irukandju venom just straight up creates feelings of dread and impending doom putting the effected person in a state similar to Killing Intent making rational thought impossible halving their reaction speed and making movement harder. When a summoning creature is exposed to the poison be they the wielders own creatures or an opponent's it makes them see their natural predator swarming around them much larger than they are and intimidating them excessively forcing the summoning creature to reverse summon or disperse.

Along with this intense fear the carbogen forces the poisoned being to feel as if they are always suffocating no matter what they do or how they react even mind clearing jutsu can't overcome this. This is an innate reaction that cannot be overcome no matter how hard the opponent tries to focus or look past it this is because when carbogen is inhaled, the increased level of carbon dioxide causes a perception, both psychological and physiological, of suffocation. The brain itself interprets an increase in blood carbon dioxide as a decrease in oxygen level, which would generally be the case under natural circumstances. Inhalation of carbogen causes the body to react as if it were not receiving sufficient oxygen: breathing quickens and deepens, heart rate increases, and cells release alkaline buffering agents to remove carbonic acid from the bloodstream as stated this is an innate bodily reaction something that can't be bypassed with thought, or any form of breathing exercises. The only way to bypass this is either a transfusion or nullifying and curing the poison and it's effects. This can also be done by removing the poison through normal means and nullifying the remainder. Additionally, normal shinobi are able to stop the spread of the poison by removing the afflicted limb/body part before the poison is able to spread, this won't apply if they inhale it nor if the wound isn't superficial on a limb or body part that cannot be removed. Nearly bleeding out and taking a Blood Replenishing Pill can have a similar effect as to a transfusion stopping this symptom but if exposed to the carbogen again the process just begins again.

Inhalation, Consumption or Injection: Fear is created immediately after inhalation, consumption or injection beginning in the same turn. This halves human reaction speeds due to the stress, anxiety, fear and panic that can at times feel crippling. If a summoning creature is exposed to the poison when the effects set in the intense fear forces them to reverse summon or disperse.
Skin contact or a wound: Fear sets in one turn after being poisoned in this manner it then halves human reaction speeds. For summoning creatures as soon as the fear sets in they reverse summon or disperse back to their homeland.

Finally the paralytics the Hemlock and Belladonna force the muscles to tense up becoming partially paralyzed. This eventually forces the muscle to begin to lock up completely which reduces the opponents speed halving it and limiting their reactions and tracking speed significantly. If undefended or not healed and nullified properly the untreated poison causes the person to become completely paralyzed unable to move their body locked in place as their muscles will not respond to the signals being sent to them. This eventually causes death due to the body being unable to inflate the lungs or move the diaphragm and bring oxygen into the body instigating physical suffocation and asphyxiation.

Inhalation, Consumption or Injection: Partial paralysis and muscle numbness begins immediately after inhalation, consumption or injection beginning in the same turn but doesn't cause any outward problems yet merely spreading from the point of contact. On the following turn the opponent's speed is halved as their muscles begin to lock up becoming unresponsive making movement harder and needing forceful action to move. Complete paralysis takes effect after two turns of not being treated (this means two turns after the poisoned person's speed is halved, the turn when speed is halved is counted as the first then there's a another turn where nothing new happens symptom wise) and leaves the opponent unable to move with a running speed of zero unable to perform hand seals, move their mouth, or lungs. This eventually ends in death by asphyxiation after three turns of being unable to breathe the only way to prolong a life past this point is Chakra CPR or nullifying the poison completely.
Skin contact or a wound: Everything is shifted one turn later. Partial paralysis begins the turn following being poisoned. Speed is halved the following turn as muscles begin to lock up becoming unresponsive. Complete paralysis follows two turns after that (this means two turns after the poisoned person's speed is halved, the turn when speed is halved is counted as the first then there's a another turn where nothing new happens symptom wise) reducing running speed to zero, making it impossible to perform hand seals, move their mouth or lungs. Asphyxiation takes place three turns after this the only way to prolong a life past this point is Chakra CPR or nullifying the poison completely.

Note: Samples can only be willingly given by Howard and the carrier risks exposure as only Howard is immune
Note: Can be applied to weapons, ninja tools, and smoke bombs by anyone given a sample
Note: Can be applied to the fingernails, hands, and teeth by someone with an immunity
Note: Since the poison is predominantly hormone and amino acid based it is resistant to heat and liquid once inside the body.
Senjutsu chakra:
286 - 20 ( Sage Mode / Maintain ) = 266
266 - 20 ( Wings / Maintain ) = 246
246 - 05 ( Bind ) = 241
241 - 15 ( Rain at Will ) = 226
226 - 30 ( Poison Infusion ) = 196
196 - 10 ( Sage Mode / This Turn ) = 186
186 - 10 ( Wings / This Turn ) = 176
H-... how-... st-... enou-...

Salazzle would be unable to form the sentence she wanted to so caught up in Sado's actions as she heard the music playing, the screams rushing outward and as she watched him continue his actions. She hadn't seen this side of Sado. This dark, creature, this sadistic beast. She didn't know how to ask about it, or how to tell him it was enough. Sado was only getting started though. This was one cage of the undead.
He knew Songbird had two more cages that it was carrying in. This was the first airdrop of the three in total that Lena had planned. He thought about that, specifically. This was Lena's plan. He was merely helping her execute it. For a moment a thought entered his mind. Maybe she was as broken, sadistic and monstrous as he was. She was just very good at hiding it. Better than even he was. That thought played in his mind as the music continued to echo and carry throughout the entire city.
The poison that was raining down would force any summoning creature that was touched by the liquid to immediately vanish. They wouldn't stick around and this was an innate reaction of the poison. They would just disappear fleeing the area leaving their summoners to deal with the problems on their own. The fifty or so undead had easily converted another fifty by indiscriminately killing any who were too slow to evade them.
This left a lumbering mass of undead to continue the process. They were quickly being covered in the poison and due to being undead it had no effect on them, but anyone they touched even those hiding away from the rain would be infected by the poison as fear would overtake them.
This iteration of Sado, unlike Smith, wasn't constrained by flowing honor or rules or his objective. This was just Sado, bare and broken for Lena, Salazzle and anyone else to see. He was even grinning as he heard the screams of terror radiate outwardly over the music. It was amusing to him, he seemed to get a kick out of it.

Coming from (016)

Airdrop 2
The Razing of Degarashan!

Lena & Songbird swoop into the target landmark, ready for action upon their enemies. They notice that Sado was already there and clear havoc in the city was being caused, Lena shrugged off the screaming - the adrenaline and concentration she had making her only wary of her own actions right now. Songbird flew over the Degarashi Port, she looked over the city, remembering that it was basically split in half for the citizens and the military - so Lena knew where to strike. Takauji and his underlings were about to feel what Lena had felt for the passed few months and she was kind of glad about it, it made her feel like she would become better because of this - and there was no down side to this, no one would lose their life that she cared about.

Songbird flew over militia city, where the soldiers had taken residence and found the heart of it. She recognised the areas she had been to with Jinx, she made an expression of anger and upset when she remembered the sacrifice of her companion and friend. She whispered to herself something that would also be a command for Songbird - the first of the rock cages would be let go as she uttered the words;

"For Jinx."

The cage whistled like a bomb raining down upon the the city, the drag spun the rock cage around until it impacted with a building, the rock was so tough that it completely shattered through the building sending wooden shrapnel all over the place first. This was until the rock finally hit something as strong a it self causing a massive noise to erupt from the earth, sort of like an explosion as rocks were sent flying too. The cage embedded into the building as the Oobleck spilled out in a perfectly timed fashion keeping the undead safe from the impact as a cushion. The ruined building was silent for a moment as soldiers surrounded it, they were already rushing to the aid of the other sections before this happened, they waited and then they heard it. The sound of the undead's groaning filled the streets and they shambled out of the houses, tripping and gaining ground over the district. The soldier's were brace at first, trying to fight them off - but they did so too heroically taking on too many at once was their downfall as they were overpowered and dove upon. They had no co-ordination fighting the undead and got split up and defeated.

Lena watched as the familiar armour of Takauji's force was being defeated by the undead, it was great to watch as they seemed so helpless now. How did they like it? Bet they didn't. She watched them, getting a satisfaction from the fact his forces dwindled. If only he was here to see it himself, to see who was causing it - she wanted him to watch. Lena looked around trying to find another location that looked important to the Shogunate. The ports would be a pretty good target, no where to run.

Airdrop 3
The Razing of Degarashan!

She had Songbird fly above the port cities, they seemed in a panic - no doubt word had spread to them by now. They seemed to spot her and screamed, the orange rain was probably taking their toll on their minds - seeing everything as horrible. She noticed Sado used a similar trick at Shinramoto to keep the summons and shinobi at bay, it was a powerful tool - one that Lena didn't know about first hand and didn't really wish too. She has Songbird position himself above a large military ship, it looked like a Frigate - she uttered another few words that would also prompt Songbird to release the final cage upon them all;

"For Viola!"

The cage falls again, making a whistling sound, though this time Lena performs a series of three handseals as Songbird flies across the length of the port. She summons the fire chakra to her hand and expels a series of large fiery projectiles that shoot across the docks, each of them aimed for a Gallion or Warship that donned the symbols of Takauji's militia - as the flames hit the boats they exploded as massive mid-range explosions enough to engulf the ship and any of their crew. Screams and shouting could be heard, the pain of loss, the resources they would need to get back because of this was going to be enumerable. The wooden port was set alight by the Threaded Monster and her Giant bird.

The Frigate had been destroyed by the undead's cage, and from within they poured out and infected the crew, they weren't ready to fight - they were just there to keep the ship clean. As they died and reanimated, the undead fell over the side of the ship onto the piers and began to wreak havoc amongst the flames. The Frigate eventually sunk with a good portion of them, but as they spread across port more undead were created.

( Katon: Shinku Kaen ) - Fire Release: Crimson Flame
Type: Offensive
Rank: S
Range: Mid - Long
Chakra: 40
Damage: 80
Description: The user forms three handseals and accumulates fire and/or lava chakra in his hand and triggers a series of large fiery flame projectiles. After colliding against the target, it will explode in red flame blasts. This technique is powerful enough to demolish an entire area, causing a massive mid ranged explosion. The more blasts the user makes, the smaller the ensuing explosions become.

Lena flew up beside side with Songbird and watched the destruction with him from above. She noticed that he had struck a more civilian heavy area, she finally also let the screams become audible to her now that he concentration was no longer needed. She tried to shake them off but they were so loud - the rain and the undead was becoming torturous for the citizens of Degarashan. Who probably didn't even have a choice but to follow Takauji and be apart of his Shogunate.

She looked over to Sado. He was smiling. Salazzle however, she looked different - she wasn't the confident lizard she had seen before. Lena looked back down. Was this too much? The chaos, it reflected Shinramoto. But Takauji needed to understand, that this was his doing. But did he really care? Was he here to care? Lena grew restless for a second. She had to address the Elephant in the room.

"Sado... Most of these... are just helpless people."

She suddenly didn't see these as Takauji's people. She just saw them as people and that began to change, she had visions of her own people from Shinramoto being chased through the streets and killed by evil soldiers. She didn't care much for the other half of Degarashi Port, but the citizens. She gritted her teeth and tightened her fist into a ball.

"I suddenly don't feel like this was the best course of action..."

This post marks the beginning of my mission using these storyboard elements:
Spread fear throughout a village while dressed as Alexandros (4)
Defend against or attack another group ( 4 )

Summary: Sado is ready to continue. His initial plan was to create chaos by bringing the undead into Degarashan. Now his objective is clear in his own mind. Spread fear and unrest. Take out the farms and food supplies and starve the humans that fall under Takauji Ashikaga. The plan has grown past both of the initial plans. Vegeta's plan to use the undead through tunnels and Lena's plan to drop them from the sky. Sado would do what Smith suggested a long time ago to Lena. First, he would poison the farms, removing Takauji's food source. He will use his poison to keep the Hangurian Black Ones at bay, while then continuing by clogging up the port with Oobleck. By converting the water into oobleck he can make the ships landlocked stopping the import of food, and goods and the exportation of money and funds. His vast fortune will be useless without the trade routes needed. Thus his people will begin to starve and when their hunger outweighs their fear of his regime. That's when they'll rise up. They'll revolt and that's exactly what Sado wants. Unrest. He wants to cripple Takauji indirectly. He'll do it all dressed up as Alexandros the man he learned about. The Conqueror, he'll give these humans their first, real Conquorer's End. One where Alexandros takes everything from them. He doesn't want to reveal that Sado Yasutora is still alive yet. He's waiting for the best point to reveal that to the world so doing it as a past warlord in a time when the dead are rising seems both smart and devious.

( Sandāu~ēbu ) - Thunderwave
Type: Tool
Rank: A
Range: Short - Long
Chakra: N/A ( - 5 per turn when used )
Damage: N/A
Description: Thunderwave is a basic chest plate outfitted with a surround sound speaker system, and a microphone. It can be used to play music or make noises more audible than normal similar to a karaoke machine. It is able to produce sound louder than most techniques or the clashing of techniques and can be much louder than the user or opponent can scream. In essence it can act like the (Utsusemi no Jutsu) - Empty Cicada Shell Technique passively at all times being louder and stronger than even that basic technique. It comes pre-loaded with all of the wielder's favorite songs. In battle it can be used to play theme music or it can make the user louder as it has a built in microphone system connected to the speaker system.
The primary use of Thunderwave as mentioned above is the ability to play music with the offshoot of this being the ability to cancel sound waves with sound waves while playing music. This is similar to the Scientific Ninja Tool: Shijima and works like a noise-cancellation speaker. The system can emit a sound wave with the same amplitude but with inverted phase also known as antiphase to the original sound. The waves combine to form a new wave, in a process called interference, and effectively cancel each other out. This effect is called destructive interference and is able to nullify sound techniques in equal rank. The sound can encompass a short - long range area around the user being louder the closer to the user the people who can hear it are and due to this it has a dampening system as to not harm the users ears or cause them any undue problems. It can be fine tuned to look different depending on the wielder's appearance or preference.
Note: Sound techniques can only be canceled once per turn three times per battle.
The same music continued to play, on loop for what felt like an eternity. This was by design. The only break given was when the music wavered slightly dulling as Sado spoke to Lena before picking back up. This music was meant to be unnerving and distracting to the people and to the Hangurian Black Ones. It was supposed to be ever present and never fading. So it played non-stop for as long as Sado was there. It would play for hours if Sado was there for hours.

Lena, you don't have to be here for this. I only needed you to carry the undead for me. You don't have to force yourself to do what you feel is wrong, unjust, or despicable and you don't need to dirty your hands directly. I can see how you and Salazze are reacting to this and it seems like you're feeling guilt and regret. I'm not smart, but I'm also not oblivious to my allies' feelings, and their emotions. This isn't what you want to be doing, and that's okay. That's why I'm here. I'll be the demon, and I'll be the monster, I can shoulder that burden and it's not that far from the truth in all honesty. My clan and I will be the rival to Takauji Ashikaga and his Shogunate. We'll be the people who kill indiscriminately and love every moment of it. You can be the hero, the savior, and your Shinramoto can be the safe haven. You also don't have to feel guilty for having enough self-respect and morality to say no to me, avoiding these situations. When these humans grow tired of their oppression and a Shogun who cannot protect them from a demented, demonic, creature, you can be there to take them in. To build them back up and help them. Many of these humans are going to die I knew this the moment Vegeta suggested the initial plan. Many of them are going to starve from what I do next and you don't have to be a part of any of that Lena. I would never push you a trusted ally to do what you didn't want to. Salazzle, go with Lena. If you were expecting Smith, I apologize, but we're different.

Sado began to speak. He could hear the hesitation in Lena's voice and the sheer regret and guilt that was building inside of her. She wasn't raised as he was, to think of humans as something separate from himself. It seemed like these actions pained her to do, and hurt her heart-... well hearts and he could see that in her. The turmoil this was causing, this was a direct plan, one she had thought up and one Sado supported fully and would execute completely.
He had no problems listening to the screams of terror and the chaos that ensued he even enjoyed it to a degree. A while back he had explained flat out that he didn't care what happened to these lands and this notion was best exemplified with the way he spoke when it was first brought up "We don't want his lands, we could burn them to the ground and it wouldn't affect us. That's the difference between us and him. He wants what you have, whereas we just want him to pay for what he's done." When he spoke to her, his voice wasn't patronizing instead it was geniune giving Lena an out she could take. She didn't have to watch this, nor be a part of it.
He understood her feelings, he was good at doing that. Sado hovered near Lena and lifted his right arm toward her as Salazzle ran across his arm and jumped onto Lena's left shoulder. Sado spoke again. It was as if he was trying to explain his mindset as he spoke something he remembered hearing when he was raised. His voice was much darker than Smith's had ever been. It was grim. He slipped a pill into his mouth as he continued.

Healing Factor: Weapon X
Creator: Howard
Type: Healing
Description and Background: The pill at it's base is mostly a mass of mitogens suspended in a concentrated medium of senjutsu chakra and natural energy that when consumed begins to breakdown and move throughout the body activating and signaling proto-oncogenes to ramp up cell growth exponentially. The proto-onogenes along with the body itself begin using the senjutsu chakra and natural energy as a fuel source to expedite this process. It completely turns off tumor suppressors as every cell in the body begins to rapidly and nearly uncontrollably go through mitosis converting the new cells at the site of the wound, wounds, or missing appendages to blastema. Blastema are masses of cells capable of growth and regeneration into organs or body parts, these blastema begin to form all throughout the body almost like tumors which would usually impede natural function but through the senjutsu chakra and natural energy fuel they are quickly converted into new cells rebuilding the body at a rapid pace becoming whatever new cell the body needs. These blastema can replace organs, bones, blood, muscles, nerves and any other bodily form however they are unable to repair fatal damage such as spinal column destruction, as well as severe damage to the brain or heart. However limbs can be regrown and organs excluding the heart, brain, spinal column and central nervous system can be rebuilt. The healing effects of the pill only last a single turn and will heal the user back to one hundred percent of their health pool dependent upon the state of their body in that specific turn.

In essence they can become any form of tissue or structure for the body including muscle tissue, bone tissue, organ tissue, Endothelial cells, nerves, tendons, brain tissue etcetera, and form rapidly almost like a cancer spreading throughout the body causing the consumers skin to flake and tear as if sickly almost as if they were in the late stages of cancer. These proto-oncogenes eventually convert to oncogenes and ramp up the production of mutated cells even further creating some pain but this pain is a signal that allows the consumer to know the process is halfway complete as their body is now littered with masses of blastema that are breaking down and transforming into new cells rebuilding the body through a genetic sense memory like that of the Axolotl who can rebuild organs, limbs and even brain tissue multiple times throughout their life. After this pain sets in the body begins using the senjutsu chakra and natural energy to fuel histiocytes which are large somatic cells found in stationary form in the tissues or as a mobile white blood cell, especially at sites of infection. These begin to consume and dispose of any tissue that is no longer needed converting it back, excess flesh, bone, and sinew are disposed of as the last few stages of the process begin. These histiocytes work with anti-bodies like a clean-up crew after the healing has taken place. These anti-bodies and histiocytes actively seek out the oncogenes consuming them directly. This entire process takes place over the course of a single turn.

The senjutsu chakra and natural energy has it's own effect separate from the bodily reactions brought on by the mitogens. They allow the user to instantly enter any form of Sage Mode they know as their body is flooded with this foreign energy no longer needing to wait a full turn to gather the natural energy required. Due to the spike in foreign energy most genjutsu are broken after taking this excluding MS grade or above, upon activation the user is granted 10% of their chakra as senjutsu chakra through this method the rest is consumed by the mentioned processes. This includes everything from E to Forbidden rank as well as elemental genjutsu and other types lower than MS grade. If this pill is taken while already in Sage Mode it grants the user 30% of their chakra as senjutsu chakra per pill consumed. However only a single pill can be taken per turn, with a maximum of two per individual battle. They cannot be taken within a two turn period of each other. The senjutsu chakra and natural energy also has the added effect of overcharging the entire body on a cellular level pushing any foreign material from the body this includes poisons, toxins, pathogenic matter and any harmful substance. These substances will be nullified and excreted from the body as sweat rapidly. This is due in part to the natural energy and senjutsu chakra's natural healing and rejuvenative properties but also because the metabolism of the consumer is overcharged to a point where these things are unable to remain in the body.

Description of Side Effects: The side effects mainly revolve around the pain created by the process taijutsu falters as the consumers muscles feel sore, and tense. He takes an extra twenty damage from taijutsu techniques or blunt force trauma after the medicine has worn off this lasts for two turns. The consumer is unable to use a KG or HA the turn after consuming the medicine as the cells themselves go through a state of flux where old cells are replaced. Taking one pill doesn't cause too many problems outside of the pain but taking a second does. The body won't be able to handle the clean up and disposal of the excess cells created by the second pill so the body will heal but the cells will not be disposed of thus they are left riddled with small blastema that will need to be healed later. These blastema will not be life threatening and are mostly an annoyance but will cause the consumer to be very susceptible to taijutsu and blunt force trauma taking an additional thirty damage until the blastema are healed. At this point the blastema are pretty much just scar-tissue annoying but no where near harmful however due to these blastema the user is unable to use any KG abilities, or any advanced ninjutsu including, Rain Release, Fuuinjutsu, or Hidden Abilities for two turns or until healed.

The side effects of the natural energy and senjutsu chakra are separate from the above mentioned side effects. If used to instigate a form of Sage Mode the body will be exhausted upon the deactivation of Sage Mode unable to use any KG abilities, or any advanced ninjutsu including Rain Release, Fuuinjutsu, or Hidden Abilities for two turns after Sage Mode has ended. The user spends an additional 10 chakra points per turn to sustain Sage Mode if taken to activate Sage Mode. If the user takes a second pill this 10 chakra points is doubled to 20 additional chakra points to sustain Sage Mode if used to activate Sage Mode. If taken by someone who hasn't trained with Natural Energy it'll instantly and uncontrollably turn them to stone. This training doesn't require being trained in Sage Mode just a form of natural energy or senjutsu usage.
All great things must first wear terrifying and monstrous masks in order to inscribe themselves on the hearts of humanity.

While speaking Sado's body began to twist and warp as his appearance shifted completely to that of another a more well-known individual. One he had gotten a description of while in Keishi from his spies. He took on the appearance of Alexandros Megas. He would use this new appearance to further spread fear, terror, and chaos. This transformation was strange. It wasn't like the basic transformation skill, it physically changed his appearance to that of Alexandros Megas. After explaining everything Sado turned around and began to fly toward the small farms lowering his altitude growing closer to them. These areas were less chaotic due to being far away from the heart of Degarashan.

(Senninka: Kanzen ni Atarashīmono) - Sage Transformation: Something Entirely New
Type: Supplementary
Rank: C
Range: Self
Chakra Cost: 10
Damage: N/A
Description: A Sage Transformation clansmen simply modifies their muscle, nerve and bone structure allowing them to be as tall, or as short as muscular or as fat as they want to be gaining or losing height, weight, muscle mass as well as the other bodily structures required. This is similar in regards to how Juugo changed his height, weight and bodily structure by absorbing new cells or releasing his own cells and works on fundamentally the same principle. This technique is passive in it's usage and unlike most Sage Transformation techniques once completed it doesn't require chakra or energy to sustain and maintain and becomes permanent until the technique is used again. It can be used to changed the Sage Transformation clansmens appearance at a rudimentary level by changing their bone, muscle and skin structure allowing them to take on the appearance of others. While undergoing the transformation their body glows a mix between red and black as shown when Jugo uses Sage Transformation to change his cell structure but turns the color of natural flesh after completion, instead of the usual Sage Transformation gray. By changing their height the Sage Transformation user may be able to avoid certain techniques with a line of effect such as fireballs, thrown kunai etc. They can be as short as a new born baby (roughly 20 inches) with the bodily structure of an adult, or as tall as three meters with the weight to match these forms.
Note: Can only be used three times per battle or war conflict.
Now alone he concentrated poison into and through his legs as he landed hard upon the ground. In unison, to his landing, he released the poison into and through the ground forcing liquid poison deep into the ground as well as having it radiate outward from the point of contact. This created a wave of poisonous moisture that would travel through the ground causing various effects which included first the death of numerous crops making them inedible as well as a shift in the soil itself making it acidic in nature.
The earth in this area would no longer support crops and it made for a terror-inducing sight as some of the peasants and farmers watched Alexandros Megas descend from the sky with a pair of demonic bat-like wings touching the ground with his feet and instantly killing off crops. They began to run toward the heart of Degrashan toward the poison infused rain as it continued to pour down upon the village. They didn't know what to do, run toward the undead or run toward Alexandros Megas. Sado continued by walking forward slowly as he converted the liquid poison that would have forced itself into the ground into solid poison leaving hard particles of poison all throughout the ground. These wouldn't evaporate like the liquid would have which meant the effects would be long lasting until every speck of poison was removed from the soil.
He forced more poison into the ground as he walked forward each footfall a hard stomp as he moved away from the farms walking through three or four of them spreading the poison out across the lands. By this point, people had begun to report to the Hangurian Black Ones about the return of Alexandros Megas, in shaking horror they explained to the Black Ones how he was walking through the farms and the grazing lands.
They explained that with every step he took the crops were dying in his presence. They screamed about how his mere presence brought death upon the world and this stirred the Hangurian Black Ones to chase down these spreading reports. They screamed about how it was Chungsu all over again and the Shogun needed to protect them.
Sado flapped his wings three times and began to float across the ground now like a demonic creature. More of the peasants and farmers began to flee in dread yelling about how Alexandros must have brought the undead. It was a plague brought upon Degrashan for trying to reignite the flames of the Freehold. Sado laughed menacingly as he heard the rationalizations brought up by the humans.

(Dokuton: Iridari no hōken) Poison Release: Consecration of the Ilidari
Type: Supplementary
Rank: A
Range: Short-Long
Chakra: 30
Damage: 60 (-20 to opponent's techniques that originate from the ground )
Description: The user channels poison chakra into their arms or legs and slams their dominant hand onto the ground or stomps their foot upon the ground. If they use their hand they stab their fingers into the ground releasing poison chakra as they manipulate it lacing the ground with a plethora of poisonous substances that encompasses a 5m-25m radius around the user in all directions as well as deep into the ground itself. This can also be done by merely by stomping their foot upon the ground.

The poison chakra creates a deadly poison that combines with the soil on a chemical level rapidly killing off any plant life such as wood, plants, roots, or mushrooms and makes it harder for plant life to grow from the ground. This happens over a two-turn period and not instantly in the turn it is used. This is because the substances that are created in the ground are a mixture of a deadly insecticide and a herbicide poisoning plants and creatures indiscriminately. Summoning creatures poisoned in this manner immediately reverse summon, whereas the summons associated with Summoning Ninjutsu Techniques die off slowly over the course of two turns. Insects and bugs excluding Aburame bugs die off just as quickly dying the turn after exposure. Upon the first turn of becoming poisoned a person will notice minor visual and auditory hallucinations similar to heat mirages alongside noises that are usually distracting. Things outside of short range will seem distorted and blurry as the eyes begin to water making it hard to see accurately at a distance. Upon the second turn of being poisoned their reactions will suffer slightly due to this as the hallucinations become more prominent with colors and lights twisting and warping the landscape techniques will seem out of place skewed a few meters away from where they actually are making it harder to judge distance and depth perception. This causes a reduction in reaction speed of three ranks; the symptoms do not worsen beyond this point.

Additionally, this poison absorbs and restricts the nutrients in the soil, in turn, it changes the soil from a soft loamy quality into a rocky dirt-clod like consistency devoid of moisture and almost acidic in nature. It doesn't do this through being acidic in nature but a process called soil acidity wherein elements such as calcium and magnesium are leeched from the ground thus causing the soil to change its pH. This change in soil makes it harder for plant life to thrive reducing the rank and damage of such techniques by 20 dmg and one rank it also drastically lowers the ph of the soil making the soil acidic to plant life, insects, summons, and people found in the ground, above the ground, and traveling through the ground poisoning them directly. This process is mentioned above. It specifically affects plant nutrient availability by controlling the chemical forms of the nutrients poisoning them directly making the ground itself toxic to the touch allowing it to poison anything or anyone who touches it excluding the user as they are immune to the poisonous effects. This can be used to stop the use of plant, mushroom, or wood like jutsu that originate from the ground as well as make the growing of roots, wood, and plants underground harder. This also reduces the power of earth techniques that originate from the ground forcing them to partially crumble and break away when formed thus they lose 20 dmg and one rank. This is because the earth is weakened due to its course weak consistency.

Notes:
~Can be used three times per battle
~The toxic ground effect lasts for 3 turns per usage
~ Can only be taught by Pyro NB
(Dokuton: Toripuru pointo) - Poison Release: Triple Point
Rank: A
Type: Supplementary
Range: Short - Long
Chakra Cost: 30
Damage Points: N/A (+20 to poison techniques )
Description: In chemistry and physics, the triple point is the temperature and pressure at which solid, liquid, and vapor phases of a particular substance coexist in equilibrium. It is a specific case of thermodynamic phase equilibrium. By forcing more chakra than usual into a poison technique while also coating it with a dense layer of chakra and forcing it to pressurize by forcing an immense pressure on it the user is able to raise or lower the temperature and pressure of the poisonous substance in unison. This causes any poison to reach it's natural triple point thus the poison can shift quickly through the three basic states of matter gas, liquid, and solid allowing them to coexist as one creating a superfluid or a supersolid.
By then slowing down and manipulating this process in a very precise and deliberate way the user is able to immediately and in the same timeframe as another poison technique change it's state of matter or change the state of matter of an already used technique. For example they are able to turn a liquid poison technique into gas or a gas one into a liquid; meaning they are able to vaporize or condense the poison without losing any of it's strength instead gaining strength from it. Also a third state of poison can be created one that is different and new this being a solid variation. Solid poison is strong to water while being weak to lightning. This solid form isn't dust-like in nature like what can be done with Poison Creation and instead is a real solid like solid rock or earth with the potential to poison things that touch it. Changing the state of poison is done by basically forcing more poison chakra into a technique and pressurizing it thus making it naturally stronger via giving it a one-rank boost (+20 damage). This is done by pressurizing the poison with that chakra making it denser allowing it to deal more blunt damage when colliding with something. This works up to A-rank (S-rank too, but without the damage boost) allowing the user to alter many forms of poison including another technique or just ambient inert poison on the field. The user can preemptively use this on a technique at the cost of a move to allow for the change of state once in the next two turns whenever he chooses without the use of a move later as he has activated the poison's triple point where it will be in a superposition of all three states. It can happen in the same timeframe as another poison technique but it still costs a move to use.
Note: Can be used four times per battle with a two-turn cooldown.
He made his way to the port and as he moved around the city he was intercepted by a group of Hangurian Black Ones who had heard about his presence. With a wave of his hand, he released several waves of poison that slashed against the Hangurian Black Ones. At first nothing. They thought it was just a joke. They had heard about a creature that killed things merely by being near them, this one had just splashed them with liquid and kept walking. One of them tried to slash outward at Sado, who replied with a swift palm-strike. To say it was a palm-strike would overstate what it truly was. It was a hard slap across the face that sent the man spinning as the blade fell to the ground.
It was around this moment that the poison went to action as a swelling fear began to build and hallucinations followed. The men would see Alexandros growing taller with each step toward them and their breathing would intensify. The poison would begin acting further as their lungs were paralyzed and they were left laying on the ground as Sado merely flapped his wings flying over them momentarily and making his way to the port.
He landed upon the water of the port and began to convert it to oobleck with a pulse of chakra he kneaded the substance into thick, dense oobleck. It would convert a large portion of the water to oobleck for a decent area trapping ships in the thick viscous substance making it impossible for them to move. Again Hangurian Black Ones raced to stop him.
A group of ten aimed strange weapons at him. They looked like guns he thought, similar to the senjutsu weapon he had created. They fired off chakra bullets toward him of various natures. Sado lifted his hand upward as a wave of oobleck from the vast source he had just created rushed up stopping the bullets in their tracks making it so they couldn't advance any further. With a snap of his fingers, the oobleck burst forward in a smattering of projectiles that blasted forward striking the Hangurian Black Ones that were attacking him with numerous kunai shaped projectiles that cut through and pierced through them. Another group was basically obliterated and Sado was almost finished. He walked along the coast converting all the water he touched into oobleck landlocking every ship in the port, while also making import impossible as other ships wouldn't be able to move through the oobleck.

(Dokuton: Dorakonikkuburesu) Poison Release: Tibsy's Draconic Breath
Type: Supplementary
Rank: A
Range: Short - Long
Chakra cost: 30 ( +10 to make it semi-solid again )
Damage points: 60 ( +10 to another poison technique )
Description: The user moulds poison chakra to create poison (from his body), or manipulates an already existing source of poison. If creating the source, he must perform the boar hand seal allowing him to form the source of poison into projectiles, nets, waves, tools or weapons. If he's manipulating an already existing source he is able to merely use slight motions of the hands to form sources into the above mentioned items. By doing this the user can control poison already in play forcing it to move towards the opponent at a rapid pace through the air or across the ground. This poison is usually the residual leftovers of a clash but can even be just inert poison that is on the battlefield. Inert poison refers to poison on the battlefield created by the user that no longer retains chakra. An example, poison created by something like Poison Creation that is left on the battlefield from before. This is similar to Earth Release or Water Release ie, mud left from previously used Earth Techniques or Water left from previously used water techniques. These substances would be inert, just chakra-less substances but would be usable by forcing chakra into them such as the B rank (Suiton: Bakusui Shōha) - Water Release: Exploding Water Colliding Wave technique. For a more specific example for poison release itself Poison Creation or this technique itself could be used to create a source of poison by manipulating the users own custom source creating a large amount of liquid poison leaving behind a massive amount of inert poison. It becomes inert because it's no longer being manipulated so it's just there on the field. This would obviously need the user to create poison beforehand as there wouldn't just be poison lying around on the ground like natural water that can be found for water release.
As he manipulates the poison he coats it in chakra giving it shape and making it retain a form until the user decides to release the chakra coating at that point the liquid poison loses it's solid properties covering the opponent in a viscous, almost tar-like, purple poison that can impede movement making the opponent slowed due to the excess weight of the poison as well as it's sticky properties. The poison reduces the poisoned individual's reactions and speed by three ninja ranks and causes a numbness upon any skin touched. This numbness radiates throughout the body ending in complete paralysis on turn five. During this time the numbness is accompanied by excessive pain and burning as the poison eats away at the first and second layer of skin causing moderate first to second degree burns all over the body. The user can also manipulate the poison to constrict the opponent hardening it to a point that it can hold a person in place indefinitely unless defended adequately. This is done by calling upon the chakra inside the poison causing it to increase the viscosity of the substance to the point where it's a semi-solid allowing for the temporary capture of opponents. The aforementioned process is the same one that keeps the poison solid until impact.
In the same time frame as another poison technique the user can also pump more chakra into it through this technique increasing it's rank by one rank up to S rank where it merely gains an additional ten damage. This is done by performing an extra hand seal alongside another poison technique thus making it larger, stronger and more deadly imparting the aforementioned effects onto another poison.
Notes:
- Poison creation/manipulation can be used 4 times, with a one turn cool down.
- The strengthening ability can be used once per turn with a one turn cool down (three times total)
- This can be used with a custom poison but requires it to be a liquid
(Ekitai: Konran no Arashi ) - Oobleck Release: Bog of Bemusement
Type: Supplementary
Rank: A
Range: Short - Long
Chakra cost: 30
Damage points: N/A ( 20 if trapped in the oobleck )
Description: The user when in direct contact with water or earth will perform two hand seals and use their oobleck chakra to mold the water or earth into oobleck. This can rapidly turn the water or earth into oobleck creating a massive source of oobleck that takes the appearance of a large bog. Once created the user can control the consistency of the oobleck hardening it slightly allowing them to passively walk upon it's surface. If an opponent stands upon the bog or tries to walk or run on it they will quickly sink into the oobleck. Due to it's properties it will be hard to get out because as the opponent struggles to get out the oobleck takes on a solid property holding the opponent down. This additionally has the potential to cause damage to anyone stuck in it. This is because if they struggle against it can crush bones under the sheer weight of the substance as it shifts between liquid and solid from force or pressure. This source of oobleck can be used for other jutsu as well. However it can only support jutsu A rank and below. The bog can be as big as the user wants. Additionally when the bog is used as a source for oobleck techniques they have a passive empowerment increasing their damage by twenty damage and one rank up to A rank.
Note: Can only convert inanimate Earth or Water sources
( Ekitai: Baindo ) - Oobleck Release: Bind
Type: Supplementary
Rank: A
Range: Short - Long
Chakra cost: 30 (+5 to make it solid again)
Damage points: 60 (+10 to coated technique)
Description: The user molds a mixture of water chakra and earth chakra forming a mass of Oobleck, or manipulates an already existing source of Oobleck. If creating the source, he must perform the boar hand seal allowing him to form the source of Oobleck into projectiles, nets, waves, tools or weapons. If he's manipulating an already existing source he is able to merely use slight motions of the hands to form sources into the above mentioned items.
As he manipulates the Oobleck he coats it in chakra giving it shape and making it retain a form until the user decides to release the chakra coating at that point the Oobleck loses it's solid properties covering the opponent in a thick gooey liquid that can impede movement making the opponent slowed due to the excess weight of the Oobleck as well as it's sticky properties. This will half the opponent's speed as long as the oobleck remains on the opponent. The user can also manipulate the Oobleck to constrict the opponent hardening it to a point that it can hold a person in place indefinitely unless defended adequately. This is done by calling upon the chakra inside the oobleck causing it to increase the viscosity of the substance to the point where it's a solid by creating an internal force that acts upon the oobleck. The aforementioned process is the same one that keeps the oobleck solid until impact. If the opponent tries to struggle against the oobleck that force is enough to activate the properties of oobleck without the need of chakra manipulation.
The user is also able to coat objects, constructs, other techniques, and weapons in a thick layer of oobleck or feed oobleck itself into the molding and mixture of the technique itself. This layer holds all of the properties of oobleck and makes hits dealt with the coated object, construct, technique or weapon stronger, and more devastating. This is exactly like the (Ekitai: Yoroi) Oobleck Release: Armor technique but instead of creating an armor for the user it is created for one of aforementioned things. When solid, liquid, or semisolid techniques are coated with a layer of oobleck they stand up to force, stress and elements oobleck is strong to as if the coated technique is strong to the opposing technique. However this is true for the opposite as well, if this technique is used to reinforce a technique and oobleck is weak to the element it is clashing with it even if the technique this was used on is strong to it, it will be considered weak to said technique.
Weapons, objects and constructs coated in oobleck become larger with a visible oobleck enlargement such as a kunai being completely enshrouded with oobleck, while techniques only change color slightly to a dull brown and become physically larger in size.
Notes:
The user can only form four constructs with a use of the jutsu But the power will be devided evenly between the constructs
The reinforcing ability will require the use of the hand signal and happens in the same timeframe as the technique it's modifying
The reinforcing ability can be used on oobleck jutsu without the seal, as the user is just pumping more oobleck into the technique to make it larger, and stronger. This also has the added benefit of increasing the rank of the oobleck technique as it becomes a quick combo. This does not work on S rank or Forbidden techniques.
The reinforcing ability can only be used three times per battle
By this point, even the Hangurian Black Ones were being affected by the poison as the panic was growing to a preposterous level. Sado began to fly upward and away from the port back toward where Lena had been. He seemed mostly content with what had happened when he sensed someone off in the distance. There was a technique coming directly at him a ninjutsu user had thrown a technique toward him fighting through the fear to try and protect his home and lands.
Sado respected this and gauging the technique as non-lethal and turned his body to face the man. He extending his right arm toward the technique as if grasping for it. The man had released a wave of needles toward him aimed for the heart. Sado saw them incoming and even sensed them before they could reach him. He felt like reacting in a way that would spread a tale of an undying demon.
As the water needles rushed forward toward him he began to produce cells around his heart moving his hand slightly out of the way. He surrounded it in hard bone and subcutaneous tissue providing an intuitive defense. The needles struck true one after the other hitting directly where the heart should be the damage was shielded and negated seemingly doing nothing as they pierced into the flesh and then were pushed out returning to water dripping down his body. Uuuuhhhh-...
The man didn't know how to respond he had just watched his strongest jutsu strike true and it had done nothing. Sado was turning his body to face the man as the technique hit him. The bone and subcutaneous tissue would break apart healing any damage he had taken as Sado began to speak in a low tone one that denoted respect for this person's bravery.

(Senninka: Kaibō-gaku kōen) - Sage Transformation: Anatomy Park
Type: Supplementary
Rank: C - A
Range: Short
Chakra: 15 - 30 to activate ( +5 to make further alterations )
Damage: 30 - 60 ( healed to the user )
Description: By using their Sage Transformation ability a member of the clan can alter the structure and placement of their organs shifting them throughout their body. This allows them to avoid fatal damage by moving an organ out of the way of a strike that could deal fatal or near fatal damage. Things like the heart, lungs and other vital organs can be shifted anywhere throughout the body and encased in a layer of thick dense subcutaneous tissue and rough hard bone. Moving an organ is easy, only being a C rank ability and this ability can be done passively in the same time frame as another technique. This allows the user to preemptively move them, or do so in the moment either right before or as they are being struck. Encasing that organ in a reinforced protective layer is an A rank ability and makes the organ itself immune to A rank and below elemental damage as well as S rank and below taijutsu or ninjutsu. When the organ or organ system is struck the subcutaneous tissue and bone takes the entire brunt of the damage absorbing it before being broken back down and returned to the Sage Transformation other systems. When this break down and dispersion happens the Sage Transformation user is healed instead of harmed as that tissue and bone returns to any injured portion of their body rebuilding it almost instantly. For example if they have a broken bone or a large laceration the tissue and bone that is broken down travels to that point rebuilding the missing, broken or lost tissue. Moving the organ or organs again after activating the jutsu is a passive action and costs 5 additional chakra but also counts as a usage against the two times per battle limit but does not cost a move slot
Note: Can be used two times per battle
Note: Unusable on the user's brain.
I'll let you live, for striking the great Alexandros Megas. Now go, tell your story to others.

Try again though, and you die.


The man was afraid. To him, he had only one choice. He turned and fled if his strongest technique didn't even scratch this demon then what could. In fear, he sought out an active patrol of Hangurian Black Ones who were combating the undead hordes. He explained everything he had seen.
How Alexandros Megas had taken a technique straight to the heart and kept moving. He wasn't human the man postured. He was a demon who was bringing death with him. Sado flew back to Lena and then left in the direction of Shinramoto.

Regret
The Razing of Degarashan!

IT was true that suddenly Lena was regretting her actions, that she had contributed to this plan, but at least she wasn't alone in thinking that this was wrong. Salazzle wasn't too fond of how things had turned out, and Sado suggested they stay out of this as he proceeded alone. He was the man to get this done no matter what, he had the conviction, Lena couldn't help but think Sado saw her as weak even if he didn't admit it. She outstretched her arm and caught Salazzle as she made her way across - Lena had already taken a liking to the Salamander, it seemed she had an easier time bonding with summons and animals. She watched as Sado left, looking at the back of him.

"I think I'm going to help them."

Lena said that without thinking really, but then she thought about it. A long pause to let Salazzle respond if she were too, Lena thought about what Sado said - about taking them in because the Shogun couldn't protect them. Even though she had done this, they wouldn't know if she went down to help them, they didn't see her. What they would remember is the demon Sado had tansformed into and destroyed their lands. Lena could show her face, amongst the heart of her enemy trying to save these people - it would conflict with what people have said about her as the Threaded monster. She would have proven them wrong, as though she is working against the Demon.

"Yeah. I think helping the citizens may be the only way I can feel a little better about what I've done."

Lena looked at the Salamander on her shoulder then down at Songbird and pet him on the head. She would have to fight against the undead and the Black Ones if she were to go down there, but also try and protect the innocent people who were trying to run. She had a really rushed drawn up plan in her head, but execution was going to have to be just improvised.

"I like you Salazzle. We're friends right?"

Lena asked a strange question out of the blue, but she wanted to reassure herself that Salazzle had her back in some way - as two women, as two allies who stood beside Sado. Could they oppose him if they needed too? Destruction was made around Degarashan, not just in the heart of the village but around it's farmlands too. Sado was quick to execute his plague to the Shogunate, Lena would have to be quick to or else she'd be overwhelmed and captured. The only up to that would be the chance to spit in Takauji's face. After much thought about her regrets, Sado was eventually done and flew passed Lena, back towards where they came from - was that some form of intimidation? He looked very different, twisted, Lena watched as he left and looked back down at the City.

"Stay with Songbird, bond, I'll be back."

Lena picked the Salamander off her shoulder and placed her on the body of the bird, she stepped onto his head and then turned around. Her eyes had tears in them, a rare occurrence, but she smiled and saluted before falling backwards through the air...

Salazzle kind of understood Sado's actions slightly. At least that's what she told herself as she rationalized them in her mind. She thought that as much as she couldn't do it herself she knew Sado was performing these actions because he thought it was the tactical thing to do. His mind didn't work like theirs she thought, like Lena's or Salazzle's. It was a broken thing that he was always trying to put back together piece by piece. Only to have it shattered again by himself.
She knew a bit about him when she joked a while ago saying "It's not my fault you're still stuck in the past" to Sado. She had said that because she knew about his past. She knew how he was raised, and the event that changed him. So she could at least convince herself that was why he was doing this. To keep close to him what he was gathering up.

Of course we're friends Lena, and we're probably going to be working together a lot. Sado wants you to join the Golden Sabbath, you know? He was trying to think up what to say earlier. It was funny. But I want to tell you something about Sado. A bit ago, he called you his ally and noticed your feelings. That means a lot to him. He never had a family. When Sado calls someone an ally, that's the closest thing to family he has for him. He comes from a nomadic people, and his parents died before he was old enough to know them. He blames himself for a lot of things that aren't his fault and I've talked to him about overcoming that but he can't. Right before you told me about what happened in Jinshui I said something to Sado. I was referring to an event that happened to him long ago. Something that changed him.

Salazzle spoke rather seriously trying to keep Lena's attention, she could see that something was wrong with her. Especially with the way Lena spoke to her. She didn't want to give away too much especially if Sado didn't want it known but she felt like a few little things could be said.
She wanted Lena to know Sado respected her, and the fact that he called her an ally meant a lot. She knew Sado didn't consider himself human, so he related more to Salazzle who was an animal and he seemed to relate to Lena who seemed to think she herself was a monster. Salazzle was under the impression that Sado was determined to do the bad things he believed needed to be done to keep his people, Lena's people and all of his other allies safe.
Bad deeds for a good cause, she thought. Even if that meant becoming a target in place of them and being a distraction. If he could keep everything focused on him he wouldn't have to lose another family. Salazzle believed he didn't care if he died if he could protect his allies with his life. Finishing speaking Salazzle noticed Lena fall backward and she was gone. Salazzle quickly surrounded herself with a shroud of gaseous poison and leaped from the bird flying in above the woman remaining close to her.
This was something Sado had taught her to do. It granted her flight, something that no other salamander could do as two ethereal gaseous wings ruptured out from the cloak appearing as purple, broken, featherless wings upon her back. She pretended to be afraid of it every time Sado flew off but she was always in control of her own body.
If she had fallen she could have flown at any time. She had more abilities than she let on and this was just one of them as she followed closely behind Lena. She wasn't going to let this woman alone. Not right now, not when she needed a friend at her side. You can't get rid of me that easily.

(Dokuton: Kōgo no Yogore) - Poison Ninjutsu: Colloquial Cloak of Contamination
Type: Offensive/Defensive/Supplementary
Rank: S
Range: Short - Mid
Chakra: 40 ( +10 per turn to maintain ) ( +20 to rebuild )
Damage: 80
Description: The user begins by releasing poison chakra from their skin materialising it into a shroud of dense liquid or gas cloaking their body in the substance creating a form of pseudo-clothing from pure poison. This allows for a rather decent defence against things that form of poison is strong to for example a liquid shroud will allow for the defence of even Forbidden rank fire release as the liquid vaporizes into it's gaseous state while also being able to take on two S rank fire techniques. Alternatively if a gaseous shroud is created it can defend from even Forbidden rank lightning or take on two S rank lightning techniques. Anything that form of poison is neutral to plays on equal terms with the cloak obviously. Additionally by performing a hand seal and spending a move slot by releasing more poison into the cloak it can be rebuilt and strengthened temporarily allowing it to survive through damage that would normally destroy it. However this can only be done once per usage.
The cloak can additionally be used to attack an opponent by using it as an S rank construct with it being able to travel up to mid range from them in any direction creating tentacles and hands that whip out and strike at their opponents and just requires the user to manipulate the cloak to attack. It can be done passively upon creation but if used after the turn of creation it will cost a move slot. The gaseous form is able to grant flight, and create wings on the back allowing the user to fly at their base running speed the wings themselves are more cosmetic than anything else as the gaseous cloak is what allows the flight. This is because it has enough substance to pick up and move the user and by being manipulated it can carry the user throughout a battlefield allowing them to hover or glide. The basic poison itself only has the effects of Med Toxin, where the really useful part comes in is when the user uses their own custom poison to create the cloak imparting upon it those effects. The cloak can support A rank and below poison techniques allowing it to be used as a source for things such as Poison Creation or other similar poison techniques.
Note:
Can be used twice per battle lasting three turns per use
Can only be used to attack as an S rank construct once per turn and costs a moveslot after the turn of creation
Twice per battle, once per turn and passively per cloak creation the user can use the gaseous cloak to avoid incoming techniques.
