Snowbork

Snowbork’s cold, rocky landscape is characterized by snowy mountain peaks with deep drops into deep and dark gorges or, along its long coastline, the freezing ocean below. Life here is rough and both the flora and fauna reflect this fact and very few humans have settled here permanently.

Claiming Territory

Synopsis: Hotsuma is tasked with eliminating the bandits hidden within Snowbork. However, someone or something got to the target before he did. When he is unable to determine who left him with a surprise, he works to establish his clan's control over the area.

Storyboard Elements:

Explore an abandoned site (2)
Set up a secure camp (2)
Put the Clan's interest first (2)

Mission Rank: C




Left, right, up, down. Would it ever stop? Hotsuma wondered as he tried his best to stand tall against the snow that blew back and forth every way it could. As he made his way further into the region known as Snowbork he could not pick up any traces of the ninja faction plaguing the land's that rightfully belonged to the Rising Cloud. The intel he received from his friend Hei was beginning to look like a sham as the lone shinobi tried his best to avoid the worst of the blizzard. If it weren't for his Sage Mode, Hotsuma would have surely been unable to find his way through the storm. But, for the sake of his clan, he would continue to push towards the last known location his chakra sensing would pick up. With his Sage Mode active, he could clearly sense the band of thieves just to the north situated near the coast. If it weren't for the snow storm, Hotsuma would have easily traversed the landscape, however, Mother Nature was sure to make the journey as difficult as possible. Rather than let the environment lead to his demise, Hotsuma would temporarily relieve the climate of its frozen curse. He'd quickly radiate with Hellfire creating a massive pillar enhanced with natural energy. The power of the technique would leave a a blackened amount of earth.

The particular technique he used was not only practical but life-saving as it would enable him to continue towards his destination without any further issues from the wind and cold.

Jigokuton|Meiun - [Hellfire Release| Doom]
Rank: A
Type: Attack/Defence/Supplementary
Range:Short-Mid
Chakra: 30
Damage: 60 + 30
Description: The user will create a large pillar of hellfire to surround the guarding them from all sides and damaging the landscape as well. This technique activates quickly without the use of handseals and causes the opponent's water based attacks to become useless for the turn after this is used due to an increase in temperature.

As the snow lifted soon after Hotsuma's jutsu took effect, he was fully capable of seeing a plume of black smoke in the distance. Due to the remoteness of the region, it surely would require further investigation. The natural protection of the mountains and the consistency of the snow that fell in this region would have surely made it difficult for even the best of navigators to locate it, a perfect outpost for bandits. With his Sage Mode however, Hotsuma was not able to feel any activity coming from the camp and he neared closer to get a better look. Hotsuma neared the location, leaping throught the rocks towards the smoke stack. He arrived too late it seemed because from the looks of things someone had already dealt with the problem as a pile of burning corpses was what created the smoke. The scars of battle and stench of death were quite gruesome.

"Who could have possibly done all this?" Hotsuma thought as he continued to investigate the scene which seemed straight out of a horror film.

As Hotsuma searched throughout the location he came across the bandit's main hideout. The building showed signs of damage, as craters were littered throughout the area. The main building had been constructed via the Earth Release directly into the mountain face which not only protected it from the constant snowfall, but further kept it concealed from anyone wandering this way. Someone had wanted this place to be found. Continuing inside the bandits hideout, even more scenes of blood were etched into the walls. Hotsuma came across several more bodies on the inside. Everyone had been taken out via a single strike to the neck with a blade. There was no telling who may have done it, but they like Hotsuma were also a master assassin. It intrigued Hotsuma as to what the skills were of the person who was capable of taking out an entire camp easily. Hotsuma wanted to continue further investigating, however he would have to place his curiosity on hold. As the location was nonetheless a prime outpost here in the harsh winter landscape.

However this job would be way to much for a single person, and he proceeded to make several clone copies of himself to assist in the task of setting up a secure base of operations and clearing the carnage. The task was grueling especially considering it was someone else's mess. It wasn't Hotsuma's job to play housekeeping especially to someone who had obviously had too much fun with these slayings "Unprofessional" he couldn't help but think. However, for the sake of the clan, he would bear through it. Hotsuma and the clones, first got rid of the bodies. It took nearly a hour to gather them all into a pile to which they would then bury them all. There may come a time where Hotsuma would need to make use of them once again. As a avid Kinjutsu user, Hotsuma was sure there was some way he could have the bandits redeem themselves one day.

(Kage Bunshin no Jutsu) - Shadow Clone Technique
Rank: B
Type: Supplementary
Range: Short
Chakra Cost: 20 (total chakra is divided by the final number of clones plus the user)
Damage Points: N/A
Description: The Kage Bunshin distributes the ninja's chakra evenly among the clones and himself and creates a real copy with form and substance. The clones, a max number of 5, are capable of performing techniques on their own and can even bleed, but will usually disperse after hit by a strong enough force, returning 75% of its individual chakra to the user. Shadow clones can't be distinguished from the original with Sharingan, Byakugan, Rinnegan or normal Chakra Sensing. The clone itself can also utilize any jutsu the original ninja knows. When the clone finally disperses, any new knowledge it has gained is passed back to the original ninja and any additional clones.

Next came the remodeling of the outpost., Hotsuma and his clones, would use the Earth Release to demolish the structure. In a coordinated effort, they would work to clear the rubble and then create an entirely new structure in the old one's place. In the days to come Hotsuma would have the clones establish a route that would lead them back to Dainashi and in a day's time they had lookouts placed at the location as a way to survey the frozen waters beyond them. The Rising Cloud's banner was etched into the landscape as a symbol of the landmark now being their territory. After preparations were completed, the clones would poof and return 3/4 of their remaining chakra back to Hotsuma

(Doton: Iwa Yado Kuzushi) - Earth Release: Stone Lodging Destruction
Type: Supplementary
Rank: C
Range: Short-Long
Chakra: 15
Damage: N/A (up to 60)
Descripton: The user will do one hand seal and cause nearby earth structures (either natural occurring ones on the field (such as cave ceilings, cliffs, etc), man made (buildings, etc) or jutsu made (up to C-Rank active structures)) to collapse and fall. This technique allows the ninja to control nearby stone and rock and dislodge any vulnerable or sensitive spots, causing the structure to collapse. This can be especially useful if in a cave or a stone lodging. The technique can loosen the rocks and cause them to come raining down on whomever is trapped inside. The damage depends on the size of the cavern or rock lodging above or nearby the target and not on the amount of chakra used which doesn't need to be high. A large cave with a thick ceiling can easily do the physical damage equivalent to an A-Rank technique but due to the damage not being focused or chakra fueled, its also easily defendable.

(Doton: Iwa no Hogo) - Earth Release: Earth Shelter Technique
Type: Defensive
Rank: B
Range: Short
Chakra: 20
Damage: N/A
Description: The user surrounds themselves with earth, taken from the immediate vicinity, in order to fabricate a formation of rock that is capable of protecting both the user and others in close proximity, if desired. Doing so, seemingly leaves the surrounding terrain unaltered, even when the quantity of earth used is enough to form a complete dome around multiple individuals as seen when Ittan used this technique. The user can also manipulate the resulting shelter to have openings in it so as to be able to observe outside, as demonstrated when used by Kitsuchi.

CP: 1110 + 10% = 1270 \ 5 = 254 - 15 - 20 = 219 + 821 = 1040
Sage Mode: 520 - 30 - 10 = 470

After surveying the development of the location and establishing a route from here to Dainashi, Hotsuma figured it was time to return home.

CP: 1040 + 160 = 1200
Sage Mode: 470 - 10 = 460
