Thank you for agreeing to oversee my training in Fūinjutsu, @Drackos. I really appreciate the opportunity.

It's up to you if you would like to do this via roleplay or OOC; I'm totally fine with either so it's whatever works best for you. I look forward to our training. 🙏

OOC because the amount of time it would take to roleplay an entire Fuuin training session would be insane, lol. In my training I'll ask you questions and I want you to answer them as best as you can. You don't need to go to ridiculous lengths to fill in the gaps of your knowledge. Just answer them as well as you can and I'll fill in the rest. Many of the techniques in Fuuin we'll see aren't very useful, or some are very useful. Others I'll ask how you'd make customs based on this, or push your knowledge on how you'd use them in a fight. It varies.

But to start out tell me what you know about the six basic components of Fuuinjutsu.

Fair enough, totally understandable. I look forward to receiving your mentorship on the subject. 🙏

The six basic components that make up the fundamentals of Fuuinjutsu are as follows:
  • The target of sealing
  • The vessel sealed within
  • The trigger that enacts the sealing process
  • The binding that holds the target
  • Chakra application
  • The seal release, or "Key."
From my understanding, these components are less accurately described as "requirements" and more akin to basic principles that make up the functionality of Fuuinjutsu usage; but can be applied in a variety of ways and in no particular limited manner. The "target" refers to the particular subject intended to be encapsulated within a sealing technique, generally sealed into what is referred to as the "vessel," which is the subject intended to be the container for the target sealed within. Most commonly these vessels are things such as scrolls, books, tattoos and a variety of things similar. Though a vessel is not inherently limited to inanimate objects as, in some instances, even living beings/organisms can be utilized for the purpose of a vessel, particularly by the common example of Naruto being the vessel to the target that is the Kyubi.

A "trigger" refers to a possible event or enacting element that plays a role in the activation of a sealing technique. This generally takes the form of hand seals, chakra manipulation, or time dilation for the purposes of seals activating for a specific time or causation that could generally allow for the seal to be made "primitively" without the need for it's creation on the spot, at least that's my interpretation of a trigger's primary purpose, given that not all seals have need or are required to have a trigger at all.

In the case of a "binding," this is generally the shackling component that manipulates and engages the containment of a target within it's vessel, often times taking the shape of things such as unique kanji formations, sometimes hand seals and other things that can be formulated in precise measures to "reduce" a target to a malleable state capable of being sealed away within a vessel. Unlike a trigger, this particular principle of Fuuinjutsu is considered critical and necessary in the creation of a successful sealing technique.

When referring to a "key" for a seal, this generally is addressing a command that is intended to act as a releasing mechanism to unbind a target from it's sealing vessel and allow for it to be released. Like a trigger, this component isn't intrinsically required for a seal to function properly, but it is commonly utilized for the purpose of redistributing sealed substances or objects in general in a controlled fashion, manipulated by the user of the seal. These release commands are, more often than not, generally just a particular series of hand seals made specifically for the seal itself, but otherwise can be things such as genetic recognition, such as blood or, I'd imagine, possibly even things like specific fingerprints.

And then of course the application of chakra is required to tie together all of these fundamental components in order to not only create a seal, but also to effectively maintain it as well. If I'm not mistaken, this chakra can be drawn from virtually any source so long as the quantity of the chakra is sufficient, though often times from where the chakra is drawn is dependent on the intent of the sealing procedure. As an example given in the Fuuinjutsu breakdown thread, in cases of the sealing of the tailed beasts into their vessels, or hosts, it is the host that exerts the necessary chakra to manage and maintain the seal, instead of the one actually casting the seal themselves.

Good. Better than good, in fact. Now explain some basic Fuuin rules to me - this is more for fighting in the RP than anything else. And for your customs. How does the quantity of chakra in a Fuuinjutsu technique interact with the quantity of chakra in the target of your seal?

Ah, well this may be where my knowledge begins to flatline a little, as I'm not exactly super active in the combat side of the RP or custom creation, so I'm not overly familiar with many of the particulars in this department, but I'll do my best.

From what little I understand, in the majority of cases regarding the interaction of a Fuuinjutsu technique -regardless if it is barrier orientated meant to defend/defect a technique or intended to seal a technique- it's capacity for doing so is specifically dependent on the chakra value of it's target, rather than its damage value, or even specifically it's rank. Meaning if a Fuuinjutsu technique states that it can "seal up to A-rank techniques," that translates to stating it can "seal a technique with a cost of up to 30 chakra"; any more than that and the seal becomes insufficient. I think of it as a seal functioning quite basically like a container: Every container has a maximum capacity for what can be put inside of it; cups for fluids, seals for chakra.

I imagine this particular method of figuring was decided upon as a means to avoid confusion or debate on whether or not a technique becomes capable of nullifying/resisting a Fuuinjutsu seal used against it if said technique would happen to have a damage or rank boost to it, which seems like a very common occurrence and would no doubt cause quite a bit of havoc on the logistical side of Fuuinjutsu's fundamental mechanics. So the easiest way presumably to avoid these sorts of uncertainties is to simply refer to sealing the quantity of chakra, rather than the "power" of the technique. Which is arguably still dependent on it's chakra value as well, but I wouldn't doubt that there are plenty of instances that enhance damage or rank without necessarily influencing an individual technique's chakra cost.

Was there anything I missed, or that you'd like me to try and clarify upon more?

You essentially got it right, fuuinjutsu works usually on a chakra vs chakra dynamic, when it comes to abilities that seal or absorb chakra, barriers sometimes work on a damage vs damage dynamic so it can vary. With that said when boosting fuuinjutsu by boosting the chakra cost of the ability, only 10 chakra can be added any other excess is considered wasted. So it limits the absorbition ability.

With that said we can begin with the techniques themselves. For each one I post please give me a little breakdown of the technique to your understanding, along with any thoughts you may have on them in terms of functionality usability etc.

( Isshi Tōjin ) - Light String Formation
Type: Supplementary
Rank: C
Range: Short
Chakra: 15
Damage: N/A
Description: This barrier is designed to prevent anyone from leaving its confines. Once within a certain range of the person, the user erects the barrier underfoot rendering anyone within the seals, incapable of escaping. Should the user use on someone of a higher rank than him, than the effects will be null. However, should 2 or more barriers are combined, then the effects will be increased one rank ( Kages would effect Sages now, for example ).

( Fuuinjutsu: Kōmu Kekkaijutsu ) - Sealing Arts: Crimson Mist Barrier Jutsu
Type: Supplementary
Rank: C
Range: Short - Long
Chakra: 15
Damage: N/A
Description: By summoning a thick wall of mist, the user can impair sight for all within it. It also masks any sound from being heard outside of the mist. The effectiveness of this technique varies between users as it depends on the user's skill. Starting at Chunnin rank, this lasts for 1 turn and can be extended 1 turn per rank increase up to Kage rank (6 turns). Chunnin and Special Jounin can use this up to Short range, Jounin and S-class Ninja can use this up to Mid range and Sannin and up can extend this to long range.


(Kekkai: Tengai Hojin) - Barrier: Dome Method Formation
Rank: B-Rank
Type: Supplementary
Range: Short- Mid
Chakra cost: 20 (- 10 per turn to keep active)
Damage points: N/A
Description: After clapping ones hands, this technique creates a spherical detection barrier above ground with the user at the center. At the user's command, the detection barrier can expand, grasping everything in the battle field. The user is able to detect anything that moves inside the barrier space with his or her own "sense".

A rather straightforward technique in concept; I'd say a rather basic application that sets the stage of what Fuuinjutsu is or is meant to be used for on a fundamental basis. Through the use of this particular barrier, I assume it's primarily meant to force a confined space in which can be viewed as a cage for the target, meant to minimize options for maneuverability and alleviate the need for wild spread techniques, allowing for the user to more reliably utilize direct attacks. I could also see this being utilized as a means to trap the user within the barrier as well, if nothing else but to force potential close-quarter encounters if the user possibly specializes in something like Taijutsu and has that advantage over the opponent.

I've been told that the Kage rank is not an official one anymore, that it was an old ranking system and the equivalent is now Jounin? If so, would how that is written still mean that Jounin-ranked users are capable of sealing Sage-ranked users in the barrier is erected twice? And if two barriers are used, does that occur in the same timeframe or separately, treated as two separate techniques used in the user's three technique limit per turn? Also, are these barriers capable of being broken if the target is trapped in them?

Type: Supplementary

Chunnin and Special Jounin can use this up to Short range, Jounin and S-class Ninja can use this up to Mid range and Sannin and up can extend this to long range.



A convenient technique to shape the rules of engagement in the benefit of the user; the fact that it impedes sound as well as the obvious sight is a definite bonus, allowing for things such as projectile attacks to be sent against the target, assuming the user is outside of the mist and the target inside of the mist, allowing for a large gap to be closed on them before they'd presumably even have the opportunity to react in any knowing manner.

As before, the rank layout is somewhat confusing given I'm assuming they are all from the previous system that was used. Would you mind translating what the equivalencies are to the current system so I have reference to it at a later date? I would greatly appreciate it.

At the user's command, the detection barrier can expand, grasping everything in the battle field. The user is able to detect anything that moves inside the barrier space with his or her own "sense".



This one seems meant to be something of a projected radar field that allows the user quite a bit of advantage in the way of field awareness. A couple of questions though. While the title refers to it as a "dome," which implies it's more of a canopy or half sphere, the description itself refers to it as a sphere, which implies it's a complete geometric orb of sorts yet it also states that it is "above ground." Does this barrier extend at all beneath the surface once it's expanded, capable of sensing what might be beneath the surface as well, or is it only topical awareness? And is it something that is physically visible to others? Such as, does it have any coloration or recognizable characteristics that would betray it's usage to any who see the user active it or can it be done discreetly?

The problem with light string formation is while combinations can "prevent people leaving" that really doesn't stop much, cause they can quite easily destroy the barrier given it's low durability, even with multiple formed it'll still only count as like a strong C rank, maybe a B rank at best. Also you're correct since Kage is removed it's just considered that Jonin is one rank below sage, so in situations like this you can interchange kage with sage generally. In regards to your other questions, using it multiple times would make it consume multiple move slots and multiple timeframe slots, unless you have a clone or ally perform it during the same timeframe. So all in all it's kinda shit not gonna lie to you.

With the second jutsu the rank exchange would probably make it work like this, Genin - Short range | Chuunin - Mid range | Jonin - Long range | That said this technique really is in need of an update given the rules regarding having fuuinjutsu and the rules regarding what rank jutsu a genin and chuunin can use. I'm gonna mention that to Chris when I get a moment, other than that you analysed it well.

In regards to the third technique, a picture is worth a thousand words or so they say.

You can see an image of the technique there, no it doesn't allow you to sense below the ground, however it's still a dome unless it hits the floor essentially, so if you use it in mid air, atop a summon like Jiraiya did it'll appear like that. It's mostly translucent but you can see a sort of visual distortion as it spreads, once you're inside it however you probably wouldn't notice anything. Okay moving on to the next set.

(Kekkai Houjin) - Barrier Method Battle Array
Rank: B-Rank
Type: Attack
Range: Short
Chakra Cost: 20
Damage Points: 40
Description: Kekkai Houjin is a high-level Fuuinjutsu trap technique. An array of explosive markers is jointly placed around the boundary of an area. If any opponent walks through the boundary, the seals will activate and explode.

( Kekkai Kireme no Jutsu ) - Barrier Shatter Technique
Rank: B - S
Type: Supplementary
Range: Short - Mid
Chakra: 20 - 40
Damage: N/A
Description: The user will insert their chakra into a active barrier to then interfere with the source and cancel the barrier shattering its shell.
Note: Must make direct contact. Regular Fuuinjutsu users can dispel Barrier Techniques B-Rank and below. Uzumaki bios can dispel up to A-Rank. Advanced Sealing Specialists can dispel up to S rank Barriers.

(Fusen no Kekkai) Tag Barrier
Type: Defensive/Supplementary
Rank: B-rank
Range: Short
Chakra cost: 20
Damage points: N/A
Description: The user will take a tag marked with the kanjis 障害 (Shōgai) and either place it on a weapon (like wrapped around a kunai's handle) or on a surface (like the ground). Upon doing so, a defensive spherical barrier is erected around the tag as a seal. The barrier can be used to defend against up to B-Rank ninjutsu but also be used to contain an enemy inside if feasible.

This quite simply seems like a minefield creation technique, in a manner of speaking. Presumably it's activation isn't solely tethered to the intended target being the one to step on it. Meaning it's entirely possible for them to be activated inadvertently on something or someone else, is this correct? Also, I'm curious if there's any expectation of an exact number of "explosive markers", or is it left to the user's discretion to determine that, as well the specifics of how far apart they are spread and so forth?

"Fighting fire with fire", but instead "Fighting Fuuinjutsu with Fuuinjutsu." It's pretty clear what the expected usage is, though I'm curious why it's possibly mid-range when it states that the user "must make direct contact" which to me, implies short range at most. Any thoughts on what the point of that is?

The barrier can be used to defend against up to B-Rank ninjutsu but also be used to contain an enemy inside if feasible.



So it is intended to be utilized as a "projectile sealing barrier" of sorts. Seems relatively self-explanatory, though I'm curious: If the tags are applied to kunai, are the kunai still presumably usable for damage based purposes by being "free-form" thrown at a target, and if the kunai are countered as a consequence but not necessarily destroyed, is it assumed that they land nearby and the tag barrier technique persists as intended, being erecting the barriers in whatever location they land, or is it assumed the technique is canceled out at that moment?

The quantity of explosives spread as well as their formation is left to freeform discretion but don't get too carried away numbers wise and go crazy like "I use 1000 exploding kunai" I mean unless you combo it with the ninjutsu that does that I guess, but generally it's gonna be like 10-15 max to be reasonable I'd personally say unless you do use a replication technique.
As for triggering the explosive it doesn't specify if it's triggered by enemy chakra or pressure, in that case I'd say anything that touches it would cause it to explode yeah.

In regards to the second one I believe that's the upper limit that it can undo a barrier even while in direct contact. So for example a long range barrier couldn't be removed by this, at best it'd I guess remove a mid range portion of it, since that's the maximum reach this technique has. So for something the size of say the four red yang formation barrier, this would be somewhat ineffective.

With the third question, generally if the vessel or the kanji is destroyed the fuuin becomes useless, that's worth noting for a lot of fuuinjutsu not just this one, regardless of the strength of a seal in rank, it's "durability" is still tied to the kanji that creates it and the vessel that kanji is placed on. So for example paper tags can be very ineffective on mobile targets, even if you place a strong seal on them via a paper tag, if they simply rip the tag off the fuuin will be cancelled. However with this particular technique the barrier seems to be created once it's thrown, rather than when it lands, at least that's how it reads to me. So it'd be less susceptible to this inherent weakness of sealing.

Onwards and sorry for the late reply, been a bit preoccupied. Since I was delayed I'll add another jutsu.

(Mugen Hōyō) - Infinate Embrace
Rank: B-Rank
Type: Offensive
Range: Short-Mid
Chakra cost: 20 (-50 per turn to the target, +30 to user)
Damage points: N/A
Description: The user slams his hands on the ground and generates a special barrier that surrounds the target forming a "cuboid" construct of pink chakra which begins draining the chakra of the target caught inside. This technique can be used in conjunction with shadow rope technique or other restrictive techniques to further hinder the target. Once caught inside it, the target cannot mold chakra above S-rank and the barrier itself can only be broken by B-Rank techniques or by attacking the user of the technique.

(Fuuinjutsu: Kami Komyunikēshon) Sealing Arts: Scroll Communication technique
Type: Supplementary
Rank: B-Rank
Range: N/A
Chakra: 20
Damage: N/A
Description:
The user will create 2 or more scrolls with an embedded sealing formula that connects them all together. As such, anything written in one scroll will appear written in all the connected scrolls. A very useful communication technique, it can connect scrolls regardless of the distance between them. To activate the scroll, the user needs to perform a key of hand seals that will be unique for each creation and only known to those the user wishes, preventing the use of the scrolls by those the user doesn't allow.

( Fūin Fuda ) – Sealing Tag
Rank: B-Rank
Type: Supplementary
Range: Short
Chakra cost: 20
Damage points: N/A
Description: A basic sealing technique where the user places one or more tags either directly on a target or on a technique which is restraining it. As its placed, a sealing formula spreads around the technique or the target, sealing it. This technique has been seen used with Sand ninjutsu, Earth, Water, Wood, Cloth Ninjutsu, etc but basically any technique in which you can apply the tags can be used. In the case of expert ninjas, the tags might even be incorporated into the restraining technique, with no need to actually manually place the tag or tags. Additionally, less experienced ninjas can find that throwing one or more kunais with the sealing tags attached at the technique which will trigger the same effect when the kunais stick on the technique. This prevents the target from moving, molding chakra or even being summoned.
Note: The seal takes a while to form, so most opponents can either counter the restraining technique (thus preventing the sealing formula of taking effect) or rip off the tags from themselves negating its effects entirely. If the target, however, fails to counter the restraining technique or is counter to it fails or if he doesn't remove the tags in his next move, then the seal will fully be placed and the target unable to release himself.
Note: This technique is specially designed to be used on summons and Edo Tensei Summons but will work on any opponent except Jinchurikiis.

( Chakra Haisui Fūin no Jutsu ) – Chakra Suppression Seal Technique
Rank: B-Rank
Type: Supplementary
Range: Short
Chakra cost: 20
Damage points: N/A
Description: The user places this seal on the forehead of a Jinchuuriki influenced by the powers of a Bijuu, to forcibly cause the Bijuu's powers to recede. The Jinchuuriki becomes exhausted after this happens.
Note: This can only restrict Jinchuuriki in their Incomplete form, not when they completely transform into the Bijuu.

The quantity of explosives spread as well as their formation is left to freeform discretion but don't get too carried away numbers wise and go crazy like "I use 1000 exploding kunai" I mean unless you combo it with the ninjutsu that does that I guess, but generally it's gonna be like 10-15 max to be reasonable I'd personally say unless you do use a replication technique.
As for triggering the explosive it doesn't specify if it's triggered by enemy chakra or pressure, in that case I'd say anything that touches it would cause it to explode yeah.

In regards to the second one I believe that's the upper limit that it can undo a barrier even while in direct contact. So for example a long range barrier couldn't be removed by this, at best it'd I guess remove a mid range portion of it, since that's the maximum reach this technique has. So for something the size of say the four red yang formation barrier, this would be somewhat ineffective.

It's no worries, I appreciate you taking the time all the same. I fully anticipate the occasional pause here or there.

The description seems to cover most of what there is to interpret with regards to this technique. It serves as a method of hindrance to the opponent while simultaneously giving the user a steady supply of chakra. The only question I have is with regards to the maintenance of the barrier. Does the user have to maintain the previous form to create it (hands on the ground, focused entirely on the target/barrier) or is the user free to move and do other things once the barrier has been created, assumed to be self-sufficient?

Conveniently enough, I've recently used this technique -or rather was given use of it- in the NW. Imperfect and I utilized this as a means to communicate IC while he was doing his missions and I was doing my own elsewhere. It's an incredibly subjective technique that has very specific uses, but for those that have a desire to maintain a sense of realism or "authenticity" to their capacity for knowing certain things or being informed through others without essentially metagaming, it's quite useful.
One thing I'd be curious of is if the user is allowed to use this technique multiple times to form more than two scrolls and expand the network of connected scrolls? Such as if I were to use this technique twice, I would have four scrolls all connected to each other, or is it only ever the two originally formed that are connected? So even if I might have four scrolls in using it twice, it would still only be two sets of two.

This technique is mildly confusing until the final footnote that specifies it's intended use is in the prevention in specifically summonings and the like. I can see it's intended use in that way; if I'm not mistaken this is what the third Hokage used to prevent Orochimaru from summoning the Edo Tensei of the fourth Hokage back during the initial Konoha invasion, during the Chunin exams, I believe it was? It's been awhile.. haha.
I'm am a bit unsure of what it implies when it can be used on "any technique in which you can apply the tags." Does this just mean that the technique must be physical in some way, such as earth and earth-based elements, but not something like wind techniques, for example?

Very self-explanatory and not exactly open to any real interpretation. It's sole purpose is the sealing -or resealing- of the tailed beast within it's Jinchuuriki vessel. I'd wager this isn't easy to accomplish if the target isn't bound in some way before the attempted placement of the seal, but it's at least convenient if ever I find myself up against someone of the like.

Infinite embraces must be sustained once created, limiting your own mobility, it's actually one of the weaknesses for the stronger version MIE that we will be going over soon. With the communication scroll I'm pretty sure it's fine to make multiple scrolls in the same "network" not just two, so you can link them together between a large group and the like, given that we're allowed to use boruto era communication technology I can't imagine they'd limit such a fuuinjutsu.

In regards to the third technique, it's not what the third used to prevent Edo Tensei occuring, that technique he used was sadly never named or explained he just threw some shuriken at a coffin and made the generic handseal for molding chakra, it was pretty weird honestly lmao. This technique is just the generic sealing tag, so basically you bind your target with a vessel, any tangible vessel will do so yes earth, cloth, rubber, blah blah solid structure, even some advanced elements and CE, then you slap the tag on whatever you've used as the vessel and the victim is sealed inside. This was mostly used during the war arc to seal Edo's by trapping them in tangible objects and applying the tag.

The final one is pretty easy to understand and yes it certainly isn't easy to hit an incomplete transformation Bijuu in the forehead with a sealing tag without yourself being dumpstered, given their high speed and strength. With all of that we can move on to the next set.
