Lesser Stormlands (280)

As one ventures closer to the heart of Kamiyasumi they'll enter a massive clearing in the Cedar Forest. Though this clearing was not formed organically; much of the forest within it was leveled by the massive storm that rotates above the center of Kamiyasumi. Here the outer edges of a hurricane lay waste to the forest; the storm has raged for centuries, if not for thousands of years, and is centered toward the heart of the Cedar Forest.​

This post marks the beginning of a mission using the following element(s):
- Investigate the Lesser Stormlands
- Look for signs of life




As she ventured further towards the inlands leaving behind her comrades, it began to get extremely windy the further she ventured inlands, towards a massive mountainside. The forest had been bent and broken so much that little remained from what she could tell, effectively only the shrubs and bushes that were low enough to the ground not to be uprooted remained. She knelt down and touched one of its leaves, feeling its texture wondering if they felt the same back on the mainlands. The topside of the leaves were smooth, a coating of some kind of natural wax, while the underside was course, pure plant fibre. The leaves were a dark blue, uniquely that Strix hadn't seen these kinds of plant life before. Taking a kunai and trying to cut a branch off, she struggled for a moment before it finally came loose.
It must have adapted to be resistant to all kinds of forces, perhaps that can be useful later, I will have to do some experiments on it... She thought to herself.
Looking upwards and onwards, overhead but further in the distance were enormous storm clouds, ever swirling and rolling as if they were in a continuous cycle. Were these natural to the landscape of was there some kind of life or being that was creating and maintaining these storms? It wasn't outlandish to think, as Strix had seen herself a beast the size of a small island that created mist to cover it, a giant horse creature that could create volcano's with its roar. Perhaps there was a beast or something that was making the storm, but then again she wouldn't put it pass natural phenomenon to have unique environments. Marching forwards the wind picked up as they blew harder beginning to cause her to slow down. Threatening to blow her hat away. Strix took it off instead of holding it in place the entire time and stuffed it into her bag. Her jet black hair whipped around her face from the wind almost catching her eyes as the storm grew stronger with every step forwards she took. Forming a seal, she channelled chakra into the ground and placed up a few barriers around herself to give a moment to think about where she could go or what to do next.
( Doton: Tsuchi Kairō ) - Earth Release: Earthen Corridor
Type: Supplementary
Rank: A
Range: Short - Long
Chakra: 30
Damage: 60
Description: A technique that causes the surrounding earth to rise up over a target, creating a cavern. The user can either leave an opening to allow attacks to enter through the exit, cutting off escape plans of the target to avoid being hit, or close it up completely to prevent escape.

The wind howled to break it down and threatened to cause a cave in for the small enclosed space she had made. Perhaps it would have been better to make a tunnel underground... these storms are ridiculously strong.

There was no signs of life, no animals, no humans or beings, not even any evidence that life once existed here except for the trees that had now been broken down into trunks laying on the floor. Every now and then a branch would break off and the snap would cause Strix to jump, the crack suddenly alarming her. Her meteorology wasn't exactly the best however she had read that normally in a hurricane there was an eye of a storm, where the winds themselves had no effect, they blew around the outside with the eye being completely still. Poking her head out of the cave and looking around, she could see that the eye would be directly over the peak of the mountain, a long journey and trek up the hill. Mostly covered by the clouds and boulders, she could barely make out the tip of the mountain. Still she figured her best bet would be there. Taking a swig from her flask and taking a breath, she ventured back out after the respite to continue onwards for her journey to the tip of the mountain.

Trekking her way to the base of the mountainside, Strix walked slowly trudging to the mountain battling the gale force winds that was being a nuisance slowing down her travel. Spying somewhat of a path up the mountain it was relatively a smooth way to ascend the mountain, although it could hardly be called a path. It was effectively cliff faces that were extending out from the jagged overhangs, but it was the only way at least on this side she could see to move forward. Looking for another route up the mountain would take time and she was already getting tired of battling the storm and was not doing anything beneficial for her hair. It felt like miniature whips slapping her cheeks and neck as the wind picked it up and threw her hair around, cursing her own long hair. Though the wind was less of a factor as she got closer to the path with the mountain almost providing a shelter, it wouldn't stop all of the storms winds however it was significantly less that being out in the open plains. The closer she got to the mountain and the eye of the storm, the louder the storm rumbling over heard could be heard, crackling thunder and howling winds almost threatening itself to bring the mountain down over her. Strix was concerned if there would be some threat of the mountain falling down onto her, however she had to dismiss these thoughts as she continued to walk the non existent path climbing slowly up the mountain. It was slow work, the mountain quite steep and the wind slowing her down, but she was making progress thankfully. Although, caught in a lul of unfocused haze she wasn't watching the footing that she had been taking and one swift moment she put her foot down on an uneven chunk of rock, one that wasnt properly anchored which gave way. She lost her footing as a sudden feeling of falling jolted through her system and the wind caught her unprepared, it was almost as if the mountain itself was working against her. The wind blew into her hard as she lost balance, throwing her hard against the mountainside, knocking her head against the stone. The force of her body thrown against the mountain lodged some stones loose overhead as they fell, causing a landslide of tumbling rocks to fall down onto her. Then fell down, bashing into her shoulder and smashing into her hip, causing some serious damage and dazing her.

Son of a....

Strix cursed her own lack of attention, caught mid daydream as she often was, while in this strange land she needed to focus on the path ahead. Clasping her hip, she continued to stumble forward, slowly working her ways towards the top of the mountain as she only strengthened her resolve to reach the top. She needed to know what the cause of this unnatural storm was and needed answers.

And thus, Merlin's exploration of the Outer Lands had begun. Holding an arm in front of his face, he shielded it from the unforgiving winds that had long ravaged this part of the island. Gritting his teeth, he pushes onward.

The wind whipped through Lucifer's hair as he entered the clearing in the trees, the whole area seemed to be engulfed in a potent storm that had devastated the forest. For once the child of Tiamat was glad to be tethered to the ground, flying in these conditions could prove nigh impossible. Pushing onward his journey would continue.

Previous post.
This post marks the beginning of my mission using these storyboard elements:
- Scout potential threats (2).

Clearing the Ravine and moving to a new area as she climbed out of it, Musashi was greeted by a tremendous storm; powerful winds whipping about in every direction, and pelting rain. There was a clearing, of sorts here - not a natural break in the massive cedar forest, per say, but rather a clearing where the strong winds had decimated the forest and left nothing but stumps, as the massive trees had been snapped like twigs.

Musashi clutched her hat and cloak, trying to shield herself from the weather, but becoming soaked through very quickly nonetheless. From the other side of the island, seeing the storm was difficult due to the thickness and pervasiveness of the Cedar Forest, but here, from the river, and the ravine, the massive hurricane like storm could be seen - and felt - in full force.

She vaguely remembered seeing a storm hanging upon the island when she had arrived...but that was days ago? Had a tropical storm made landfall, and then been slowed by the amount of trees on the island sapping its energy? What unfortunate timing, if that was the case, she thought.

She could hardly detect a thing, nor could she really see. The intense rain probably drove whatever lived in this area into hiding, and beyond that, the strong winds decimating the forest probably displaced whatever did live here. She tried her best to get a lay of the surroundings, but, honestly, with the thick wind and rain she could hardly see to make out the landscape.

She would later recount the area in her notes and add it to her map, but for now, there was not much she could do. Once the storm cleared, the area should be fairly safe, she though, and if they wanted to develop the continent, it would help that much of the trees here had already been felled - though cleaning up all the debris would be a challenge all its own.

Deciding to keep venturing forward, rather than retreat, though, Musashi continued her adventure.

Leaving Landmark for the Greater Stormlands (281).

Akujin flew forward, the beating winds slowing his travel. He raised an arm over his red face as he pushed against the raging storm. The Tengu’s determination to carry out his task caused him to continue further. Knowing where his travels will take him, Akujin obediently continued onwards, seeking out any indication the 6 Tails was near.

Madara continued forward, trekking through the rough winds. Covering his face with his arm, the Uchiha’s Rinnegan spiraled into view as he walked forward. He was nearing the location Akujin informed him of. Time was pressing and he mustn’t fail now.

LLM

( Doujutsu: Rinnegan ) Eye Technique: Samsara Eye
Type: Supplementary
Rank: S-Rank
Range: Short-Long
Chakra: N/A ( -5 per turn )
Damage: N/A
Description: One of the 3 great Doujutsu, the Rinnegan has, like the other, the ability to see chakra and the chakra flow of individuals. It also allows the user a great clarity of perception and tracking abilities, although its levels vary from user to user. It also grants a family of abilities collectively known as the Six Paths Technique. The user is also able to summon and control the Demonic Statue of the Outer Path. Certain Rinnegan abilities have only been demonstrated by single users: Madara can create corporeal shadows in the invisible world of Limbo; Momoshiki is able to absorb any ninjutsu with his right Rinnegan and release it with his Left Rinnegan; Urashiki is capable of moving through time and space when different eyes are activated. While Nagato was never able to deactivate his eyes, Madara and other wielders could switch at will between their other eyes and Rinnegan eyes, although Uchiha aren't able to go from 3 Tomoe to Rinnegan directly. Due to implanting Madara's Rinnegan into his eye, Obito loses the ability to deactivate this eye, much like Nagato.
Note: Can only be used by Rinnegan users excluding Sasuke.
Note: Requires activation ( spending move ) for other Rinnegan bios but remains active indefinetely afterwards if the user chooses to. After having for 1 month, user becomes able to switch between both doujutsu without spending a move. In the case of Madara, user needs to have activated EMS before and had it active for 1 full turn before activating.

Reaching land once more, the travelers would shield their faces as the strong winds whipped around them. They made their way through the ravaged land, continuing on their journey.
