Ice Falls

The Ice Falls are legendary for their beauty, said to be the remnants of an underwater volcano exploding, the large mountain range is encased inside a waterfall of black ice that stands almost frozen in time. It is as though the volcano erupted and then immediately froze over, creating a spectacular, if remote landmark. The island itself is a frozen tundra, with the volcano in the center and the ice fall covering the sky up to the edges of the island.

This post marks the start of my mission with the following storyboard elements:

-Stop a brewing or exploding revolt (4)
-Survive a near-death situation (5)
-Assassinate the enemy commander (5)

Summary: After arriving in the new area, Nana finds an abandoned old temple which she begins to explore. While exploring she meets another adventurer who tells her of a cult that is using the catacombs as a base of operations for their experimentation and planning to take over the land.




Nana finished her meditation and took a stroll on the beach, and as she paced along the beach, pending about her place in this world, she stumbled over a broken piece of stone that was poking out of the beach sand. Looking upwards her gaze was drawn to a broken down archway that was poking from the mountainside, the white temple shrine looking completely run down. Strangely she hadnt known there was any temples in this area. She hadnt come across them in any of her books, so the fact that it was crumbling and falling down was curious to her. As she wandered towards the entryway, she saw some scratchings on the way, which she could barely make out.

"Scholomance"

Scholomance... hmm what could it mean? she hadn't heard it before but there were definitely signs of people being here, some burnt out torches and some small crates that were scattered around the entry. But who was here? Nana was cautious, the last time she had entered somewhere unknown she was ambushed. She wouldnt be caught unawares again.

Knocks could be heard echoing from within the building, one knock, then a pause, another, then a pause, slowly growing louder as the got closer to Nana and where she now stood. As the went on, it got louder as it got closer but then another sound carried, footsteps, but who was it. In the doorway appeared an hold man, with a staff in his hand, a grey cloak and grey hat. A long sword sat on his hip as he leaned on his staff.

"Good morning, have you come to join me on this little venture?"

Tattered Staff
Type: Weapon
Rank: S
Range: Short
Chakra: 50 (-10 per turn)
Damage: N/A (-30 when triggered)
Description: An ancient relic discovered in the Shadow Desert of Tobusekai, the Tattered Staff was said to belong to disgruntled warriors of the Jashin faith known only as the Wraiths. When confronted of their unholy acts against their lord Jashin, the Wraiths allegedly fought back and used their Kinjutsu and Sealing abilities to seal their spirits with the other Jashinists, causing their souls to merge and become sealed within a lone staff. Ornate markings and symbols line the handle of it with a lone crescent moon shaped tip at the top. This staff, recently discovered, has the ability to bond the user and his target's spiritual and physical energy to one another; whenever the user triggers it, countless entities flood the field near instantly and form a translucent purple sphere 20 meters around the targets. Those within the sphere become entangled and linked on such a nature that whenever the user takes damage, his opponent feels that same damage doubled. This effects extends to both allies and enemies, a cruel invention of those rogue Jashinists to sacrifice as many as possible to their Lord Jashin.
Note: Sphere lasts up to 6 turns and can be used 3 times per event.
Note: When in use, the user cannot cause any direct harm to himself unless using Forbidden ranked Jutsu or the recoil from other techniques. This damage does not transfer to others.
Note: The user can use this staff as an extension of him and as such, use it for Taijutsu, Kenjutsu or staff based attacks.

Nana saw an elderly man turning towards her and speaking.

"Good morning, have you come to join me on this little venture?"

She felt no threat from him, although she had some kind of feeling about him, whether it was good or not, she would be cautious as she approached.

Perhaps, depending on what your venture is. What do you know of this place? I had no idea that this temple was here, despite all the books Ive read about this land. It looks like there is some life living in this temple, but why live here, in an abandoned unknown temple?

"Live is an interesting choice of word you have there, interesting indeed... mmmm

Well, what can a book tell you that a little adventure can't, how would you like to guide this old man on his ways through, sometimes i can be a bit forgetful, and well, company is always welcome.... lead the way...."

With a nod, Nana was still unsure of the old man, but decided to trust in him for now. Nana was having an uneasy feeling like they were being watched, and as she turned back towards the entrance, her eyes noticed the two stonee gargoyls that were perched over the entrance down to the temple ruins. Had they moved? She didnt pay much attention to them before when she first arrived but now, she thought they werent that way from the corner of her eyes. She stepped closer, and she swore that their eyes flashed for a second, the gems in their sockets turning from black to green. She paused, halting mid step before continuing. Unsure if the old man had seen it as well, she continued forwards slowly watching the gargoyles as she made her way into the chamber ahead.
The was a low pitch groaning, or moaning that was coming from inside, making Nana even more uncomortable. What was this place and why was it so hidden? Why was this old man here, going on an adventure? Shaking her head, they came into this open chamber that looked like it had been converted into a library study. In the center stood an elderly man, sunken face that was chanting infront of these ruins that were etched into the floor. Surrounding him were several men and women, what looked liked disciples or something.

This doesnt look good, we probably should stop this...

They were stood on a balcony that overlook the room with a staircase descending down on either side. Well Tally ho...

Nana jumped over the edge, taking the direct route as she landed directly in the middle of the room, disrupting the ritual as she slammed her fist into the ground, causing a large shockwave to erupt and crack the floor, tearing apart the rune that was carved into the ground. Upon closer inspection it looked like it was painted with blood as well, but was now broken apart. The men and women that had surrounded the leader were thrown back into the bookcases as pages and dust went flying everywhere.

CLASS IS NOW IN SESSION

The older man who looked down upon Nana screamed out. She could see a disfigured face, scarred and gaunt underneath his hood with a knife in one hand as he reached out to her.

This post marks the start of my mission with the following storyboard elements:

- Fight an individual of comparable strength
- Explore the history of something

Summary: Gandalf enters into the ancient building in search of knowledge to be met with a challenge...




Gandalf made his way into the building before him, cautiously as he knew not what lay before him. Holding his sword at the ready, he made his way through the main door before heading down a set of stairs into the dungeon below. The rooms were dark, leaving him struggling to see even with his rinnegan. Releasing his chakra into the staff the jewel in the end began to glow, casting light around the room, enough so he could see, though it still seemed extremely dark. He followed the steps which spiralled down below before entering a large room. It would seem as though no one had been down here in years. Holding his staff down towards the ground he could see that there was a thick layer of dust settled in, the only marks being his footprints. As he cast light around the room he could see the mass cobwebs spread around.

Making his way forwards he would swing his sword every now and then slicing through cobwebs clearing his path. As he made his way to one side he could see something before him, a stand it would seem. On it lay open a book, a fragile one at that. He gave it a gentle blow, the webs and dust pushing off the delicate pages. Gandalf was old, beyond the years of counting but even this seemed ancient to him, he looked down casting light on the page. He tried to read the text but that would not come easy. He could make out the title, it would seem it was called "Book of Mazarbul."

The text itself was a form of runes, that of one of the clan's of old:

Gandalf needed to know what had happened here, why it was in the condition the way it was and so he tried, and began to read, slowly making sense of the runes...

"We cannot get out. We cannot get out. They have taken the bridge and Second Hall......"

Who was trapped here... what was stopping them from getting away?

" and and fell there bravely while the rest retreated to the Chamber of…Mazarbul."

Those names, they seemed familiar, a clan of old indeed, one that went by the name "Son's of Durin". They preferred to live below ground, under the earth, great miners who forged great halls of stone, crafted the greatest weapons and were unrivalled in their smithing skills. But how had they come to be here? Was this their home?

"We are still ho{ldin}g...but hope …Óin's party went five days ago but today only four returned. "

Something wasn't right. What was keeping them there? In that moment a thud sounded from the depths below. Something was there. The very ground shook. Gandalf held his staff and sword, but he read on...

"The pool is up to the wall at West-gate."

Another thud, dust fell from the ceiling. What ever had come for them was awake... still...

"The Watcher in the Water took --we cannot get out. "

Was the watcher the thing below? Or something else entirely?

"The end comes soon. We hear drums, drums in the deep."

The thudding grew louder, the tunnel at the end where Gandalf had entered glowed bright red. It would seem as though the clan of Durin never left this place. The reason this place as in the state it is in, was due to the what ever was coming from below. From reading the text it would seem as though there was no escape. That didn't matter now. All's Gandalf could do would be to face this ancient terror. With that he read the last line...

"They are coming....."

Gandalf saw that the line dew off, something had indeed come. Who ever had wrote this had perished here, he was about to find out. Gandalf held his sword right, his staff forwards. Flames began to flicker through the doorway followed by smoke. It couldn't be...

"A Balrog of Morgoth..."

With that the smoke and flame burst forth, a demon of fire and shadow know as a "Balrog", something created in ancient times by those who experimented with yin and yang giving life to the most atrocious things. Either the Son's of During had created it, or just had the misfortune of having to come across it.

"I am a servant of the Secret Fire, wielder of the flame of Anor. You cannot pass! The dark fire will not avail you, flame of Udûn. Go back to the Shadow! You cannot pass!"

As he spoke his staff began to glow. But the demon came forth in it's full form. His body as large as a house, it's wings of smoke and darkness spread out. It's mouth gaping open as it screamed in Gandalf's direction releasing a wave of pure heat from it's voice alone. A sword and whip of focused flame armed the beast.

"You cannot pass!!!"

Gandalf shouted. The beast drew back its whip and swung it down on Gandalf. Holding up his staff he created a barrier of absolute repulsing effect, pushing the whip back, but the shock wave alone caused rock to fall from the ceiling. The sparks jumped from his shield igniting the room.

Even Gandalf's absolute defence shuddered under the might of the beast. Now came the beast's sword, smashing into his shield, although it managed to hold for a moment pushing the beast back, the shield broke, leaving Gandalf defenceless. How strong was this demon? It was no surprise the Son's of Durin had fell to this beast and couldn't escape. Gandalf had learned a lot in such a short time here but he would make sure to let the world know of the deeds of the clan of old. Now the beast drew back it's whip again.

( Shinra Tensei ) - Divine Punishment
Type: Supplementary/Defensive/Offensive
Rank: S
Range: Short
Chakra: 40 ( +20 per extra range )
Damage: N/A
Description: Using the Deva Paths abilities to manipulate gravitational forces, the user will repulse and push away anything around him up to a given range, in all directions, producing an omni-repulsion effect. The force and repulsive effect is absolute, affecting both energy and matter alike. The technique itself can be used with different ranges/sizes, depending on how much chakra the user spends for the technique and can even, in its smaller form, be sustained, forming a static defensive field instead of a wave-like effect.
Shōkibo - Small Scale: the user will push away anything around him up to short range. The offensive power in this size is not that high as it hits opponents but can still do severe damage. It isn't, however, fatal, boasting a physical 40 damage. If the user focuses this ability with the help of his hands he can sustain a defensive absolute repulsive field around him. He can't, however, do any technique while he is sustaining it and he can only sustain it for 2 turns. Once used, takes one turn cool down to use gravitational related techniques again.
Chūkibo - Medium Scale: the user will push away anything around him up to mid range. The offensive power in this size is severe, sending opponents flying backwards with enough force to, if not defended properly, leave near fatal physical damage. Although not directly fatal, the technique boasts a physical damage of 80. If the user focuses this ability through one or both hands, he can push away a specific target or technique alone, instead of producing the normal omni-repulsive wave. Once used, takes 2 turns cool down to use gravitational related techniques again.
Ōkibo - Large Scale: the user will push away anything around him up to long range. The offensive power of the technique is devastating and anything in its path that doesn't manage to defend properly is left obliterated. Its fatal if unguarded, boasting a physical damage of 160. Using this techniques poses a great deal of danger to the user as he damages his chakra pathway itself to be able to mold sufficient chakra to perform it. Once used, the user loses the use any gravitational related techniques for the remainder of the fight and is unable to mold chakra for techniques above A-Rank for 5 turns.
Note: The technique is immune to normal Elemental Weaknesses and Strengths and as such can't be blocked or stopped. However, the enemies can still use techniques that prevent or reduce physical damage to their bodies to survive its effects or escape its range through a fast enough technique. This means that in the large scale, while the technique can't be stopped or directly countered, enemies can still manage to survive if the logically counter.
Note: can only be used by Rinnegan bios with the ( Tendō ) - Deva Path active

Gandalf wasn't out for the count just yet, this was a beast of the darkness, he would deal with it with the power of the light. He held up his sword releasing his chakra through it, lightning would stream down into his sword, focusing it into his blade. As the beast swung down, he held his blade forth releasing the stream of lightning enhanced his his own ancient power, his six paths senjutsu. The lightning hit the beast blasting it back before the whip could connect. His arms would smash through the walls by the entrance it came through, breaking it apart. The entire room began to shake. The roof began to crack, it wouldn't hold. He couldn't beat this beast with this. It was too strong, if he stayed any longer he would be crushed by the building caving in. He bolted for the end of the room away from the beast diving through just as the beast screamed, releasing a blast of fire. Though it didn't reach, the ceiling came down on the flames extinguishing them.

(Raiton: Ikazuchi no Kiba) - Lightning Release: Fangs of Lightning
Type: Offensive
Rank: B
Range: Short-Mid
Chakra: 20
Damage: 40
Description: The user will raise his hand or a weapon and send an electrical discharge into the clouds, allowing them to create lightning strikes in the desired location. The discharges are triggered right after the technique and cannot be delayed or prepared before hand but are quite fast.

Gandalf sat breathless having felt the history of this world, a terifying secret to say the least. As he sat catching his breath he thought over how this place come to be, glad it was over. But in that moment something cause his eye through the rubble beyond. The rocks, they glowed red.... the beast wasn't done....
