Korra would return to the port she helped create. She goes into the house and writes down everything she saw in a scroll. Knowing that her main self will have to study the undead and seeing that there is a connection to the dig site she would write everything and explain that Sado would want her main body to do experiments. After writing on the scroll the clone would summon a carrier bee that would take the scroll to the main Korra.
(Kuchiyose no Jutsu) - Summoning Technique
Chakra Cost: 20
Damage points: N/A
To summon the creature the ninja will wipe blood on his hand, perform the Boar → Dog → Bird → Monkey → Ram handseals and then touch the ground or another object, where a sealing formula will appear. Though it appears that as long as significant pressure is placed against the blood in some form, the summon will be complete, most summoning uses use a solid surface, though in some cases it can even be done mid air. There can be variations to the summoning steps, some ninja like Temari will wipe blood on her fan, then by swinging the fan the animal is summoned. Other ninja like Orochimaru wipe the blood across a snake tattoo on their arm first, then touch the ground. Others will clap their hands directly like Nagato through the use of his Animal Path. The user must have signed the contract with the creature he wants to summon but the technique can be used to summon a generic creature of that contract (B-Rank) which will have no special traits or abilities beyond those normal to the rest of the animals in the contract. The animal is always summoned on the mark that appears upon slamming the users hand or, if not the case, always in short range of the user.
After that Korra would take out her cellphone and text the others about what she saw and what they will have to deal with. She would send them the picture of the cultist looks and the equipment they are using. She would also explain to them who their leader is and suggest that maybe they should capture that person to gain more knowledge. After that Korra would rest for a little bit before going back out again.

Earlier, you mentioned that I haven't left Sage Mode since I dawned these shores nearly a month ago. Situations like this, are the reason for that. I assume you are unable to sense or perceive them due to not being a chakra sensor huh, Salazzle? We have a spy, technically we have had a spy for a while actually but I left them to their own devices for a bit so they could get an understanding of who we are, and the people around us. I could sense them since they entered our land, you see I know they entered from the north, they traveled through the city, and then right before entering the port, they used a technique. I assume it was a stealth technique since we can't see or hear them. Right now they're hiding behind those barrels over there trying to actively mask their presence. I think they're listening to me right now in fact. I'm actually waiting for them to pick up on it, and leave their hiding position to have a civilized discussion.This marks the beginning of my mission with the following elements:
Summary: After returning from his various endeavors outside of the main port leading into the heart of Tobusekai Sado senses an intruder. Not knowing who they are, or what they want with him, or his village he has to handle the situation. For one, he has to deal with the problem, hopefully without violence not wanting to waste the time and effort he has placed into the Lost Shores with a drawn out, or dangerous battle but also he has to take responsibility for what his clan has done here. The fact that they have begun to wash away the damage dealt by the Mother Cult, and try to better Tobusekai, in doing so they may have made enemies. It's going to be a few posts and is meant to be an introduction for -Colbat-'s bio to join the village.
- Deal with a problem in a tactical manner, instead of through direct confrontation ( 4 )
- Take responsibility for the actions of your Clan and/or its members ( 4 )
This post marks the begining of my mission with the following elements:Earlier, you mentioned that I haven't left Sage Mode since I dawned these shores nearly a month ago. Situations like this, are the reason for that. I assume you are unable to sense or perceive them due to not being a chakra sensor huh, Salazzle?

Sado continued what he was doing, he could sense the individual the moment their chakra signature entered into his area of perception. This meant that he knew that they were traveling in from the north and that they were taking their time through the city, finally entering the port and waiting near his position. He assumed they were listening and watching him. He showed no fear or hesitation in talking about them as he began to speak to his salamander summon. He even went on to explain where, and how they traveled through the land, being able to remember the path via their chakra sensing.
There wasn't any malice in his tone, it was actually quite plain and open his emotions somehow silenced almost completely due to his Jeet Kune Do training. His mind was clear and perceptive but he was curious as to why they were they, and why they hid their presence. Did they expect to be killed or attacked on sight? Was Tobusekai that precarious of a place where travelers were killing instantly for no transgressions beyond traveling into or through a land? He didn't seem to mind them listening to him but then again he wasn't saying anything that could be used against him.
Salazzle the tiny amphibian resting on his shoulder would pay Sado little mind as he ran his mouth. She knew he wasn't talking to her for her own sake, he was doing it to goad the hidden individual into showing themselves. He wasn't afraid, so she wasn't afraid, even yawning slightly before she began to speak to her summoner.
She eventually began to enunciate, returning Sado's verbose banter pointing out that she didn't really care what he knew. She was just trying to watch the ocean sway, and bask in the sea air. Her tone was sultry and seductive as she brushed off his long-winded and drawn out observations. It did in truth seem like she just wanted to take a break with her summoner.
Look, I don't care what you perceived and what it all means. I'm just trying to enjoy a nice day, the sun is bright, and the sun-beams are excellent on the skin. The sea air is refreshing even if the salty spray has a way of getting into every pore. The big tough, goliath barbarian senses a mouse scurrying through the streets. How does that affect me, the salamander just trying to have a nice day at the beach?
After speaking both of them fell silent waiting on how the person who now knew, that they knew they were there would react. Sado prepared just in case they attacked sensing out their presence and chakra signature as he broke his stoic appearance for a moment to laugh at Salazzle's retort.
Neither gave off a hostile demeanor but there was a seriousness in the goliath man. If he were attacked, he would defend himself but that didn't mean he would make the first move. He didn't see this intruder as an enemy yet, most people could be talked to, negotiated with and swayed to his side.
He had that sort of charismatic voice, and stature that unless a person was completely against working with him he could convince them. At least that's what he believed, knowing he had already done so on several occasions. Sado called out to the person one final time if they hadn't come out of hiding yet. This time with an offer to make their intentions known. His tone wasn't violent or abrasive on the contrary it was welcoming and warm, almost kind in a way.
So, do you want to come out? Or should we wait? I could probably have some food delivered.
Most of it is seafood though. In case you have any allergies. Salazzle loves the shrimp and crayfish.
Sylvanas listened carefully to the man noting important things in her mind. Tsumigakure. Mother Cult. She had so many questions but it was interuppted by the rumbling of her stomach after he mentioned food. The tireness of her travelling had finally caught up to her.Oh, I assumed most shinobi knew what Sage Mode was. You see it's a heightened state of mind, and perception you achieve through the careful molding of natural energy, the energy around us everywhere in the ground, the trees, the land and water, and your own chakra. It's nothing special in truth, various members of my village are able to use it. Salazzle is a creature, not a what, she's a living being like you or me. She is the slender purple salamander perched upon my shoulder enjoying the sun, and humidity. Who am I? Now that's a question with an answer so long I couldn't tell you in a day, but what I think you're literally asking is what is my name. It is, Sado Yasutora, and it's nice to meet you, whoever you are. What is this place? Well, what does it look like? It is a port and a city, well the foundation of a city, I understand it was built recently so many in Tobusekai might not know about it yet. This is us, the village of Tsumigakure, trying to put Tobusekai in order for the ones who can't do it themselves. We plan on binding these lands together, under a single banner so that the common people, the people who can't do the things we can, can live in peace without fear of being extorted or abused. Especially by the Mother Cult which apparently is tearing these lands apart leaving nothing but death, rot, and despair in their way. I could go on if you'd like to hear a longer version, but when I start talking, you'll find that it's hard to make me stop. Now, might I ask your name in return?
Sado spoke in a forward tone as if the man had nothing to hide. His tone was open and honest as he continued to explain who he was and why he was here alongside his village. He had no problem going into detail about the ability she asked about. One thing Sado usually was, was honest, he found it easier to just tell the truth than to lie even if it meant spurning someone's feelings.
He could tell the woman wasn't afraid by how she spoke. He listened to her calm tone noting the careful way she approached. To him, she didn't seem aggressive, or hostile. She just seemed curious and careful which he understood. He probably should continue explaining, but he didn't know what else she wanted to know. Nor did he feel the need to overpower and dominate the conversation. He would let the woman speak at her own pace.
His tone was still rather kind and reliable as he went on to ask her if there was anything else she wanted to know. He seemed like he wanted to talk, and he would talk endlessly if the woman let him, but he was also polite. Which in the world like this might come off as strange to those who weren't used to civility. Sado had learned quite early in his travels that diplomacy started with kindness. At least when it came to potential allies and this woman seemed like she could be an ally with the right words and some honesty.
Is there anything else you want to know. I was serious about having food delivered if you're hungry.
By the appearance of your cloak you've been out for a while and may not have eaten recently.
The salamander seemed a bit off-put when Sado referred to her as a creature. Though, she knew Sado didn't exactly consider himself human, in any regard so calling her a creature just meant he sympathized with her. She crawled up the side of Sado's shoulder, neck and head lifting her body and leaning against the right side of Sado's head as he talked to the woman explaining everything to her. She appeared guarded, but pleasant.
Sylvanas watched as he called the attendant over and noticed how nicely he spoke to him. Was this genuine? She didn't sense anything unpure or any bad intent in the man as he spoke. The waiter then turned to her waiting for her order.Sado would lift his right arm just a bit, as someone who was standing a fair distance away would come over with the usual pad in hand that a waiter would have. It appeared that this wasn't the first time Sado had, had something delivered from the nearby restaurants or bars. In truth, they were technically right across the street from the port, but Sado was a lazy man sometimes.
The attendant stood waiting at his side as Sado said that his friend would like to order some things. He didn't seem hostile toward the person taking the order either instead he appeared polite and calm with them. His tone was kind to everyone, no matter their standing. Salazzle did want him to take a break from everything else, so this is where that thought got him.
My friend Sylvanass Windrunner, of the Noldor clan, would like to make an order.
Again, just put anything on my tab, most of it gets accumulated at the bar across the street anyway.
The person would turn to face the woman, listening to her.
Sado would return to speaking, this was obviously all after Sylvannas has stopped speaking since he had given her enough time to say whatever she wanted. However, before he could speak again he paused for a moment. There was a long silence from him as if he was processing something in his mind. Something so large it took several moments to reconcile. What this was, was actually the information from his seal returning to him.
It had accrued a lot in such little time. He knew several things now, one more about the Mother Cult and what they were doing, two that his secondary personality had taken over that clone, and three they had claimed another landmark and this one was especially odd Sado processed all of that new information before he went on to answer the woman's questions reiterating them, partially for himself, partially for the woman to show he was still paying attention. Even in his absent-minded pause, he appeared attentive.
You've given me no real reason to distrust you, have you Sylvannas? You hid your presence because you didn't want to be attacked on sight. You wanted to gain more information before approaching anyone, again because you didn't want to be attacked on sight. So, I can't fault you for that, nor for traveling through our lands. You didn't know they were claimed, we just recently claimed them and you've been nothing but civil up to this point. Let's say I believe that strangers are just friends you haven't met. Well unless they want to be enemies, but you don't strike me as a person who wants to be my enemy.
His tone was playful but still somehow serious, like someone who had been through many negotiations before. It was as if he knew the line between boring rhetoric and banter and he danced between it as if trying to keep the woman entertained while also laying down the foundation for their alliance. More and more that's where it looked like he was steering this conversation toward some sort of alliance.
Though, he continued, remembering the other questions she had asked him. Tsumigakure. Now that was a loaded question, how much was he willing to tell her really? I mean, shouldn't his village be common knowledge by now? It should have spread even this far, he thought. Though, he was willing to humor her and answer her questions. Especially if that meant he got another new shinobi villager out of it. Those were hard to procure and were a valuable asset to the expansion of his dream.
The tall dark-skinned man rested his right arm upon the table as he pondered over the best way to go about explaining the answers to the questions she asked. There was no real threat in her, that he could see. He didn't see a real reason not to tell her the unabridged version, other than it taking forever. Hell, he'd tell basically anyone and tried to tell the world on multiple occasions.
More about Tsumigakure, well, we're a group of shinobi who started out as a clan. Over time we built up our ranks, took in lands, made them prosperous, helped the people, protected the people, and built a nation on the backs of hard work, time, and respect. Now, we find ourselves on the Lost Shores of Tobusekai as we try to help more individuals extending our reach into the depths of despair to give people the hope needed to survive one more day. We've done many bad things, everyone has, it's why our village is one Hidden in Sin. However, we each want to be better, and to help others be better. I hope that makes sense.
Sado would laugh as he thought about how she asked if he was the "absolute leader."
Absolute leader, not so much. I have a council. They make sure I don't kill myself. Ultimately, the people govern themselves. They set up their own power structure, we make sure it doesn't become corrupt but the common man is who leads their settlements. The bigger village as a whole may be lead by the Kage and the council but I think giving the power to the people, is the best course of action. Otherwise, leadership stagnates, and we end up with piss-poor leaders who rely heavily on the structure to keep their positions.
He would end that and move onto the next question. Another big one, one he had a lot of information about but needed more. He knew about the Mother Cult now. They were fanatics, they caused the Conquerer's End debacle and they believed in a matronly messiah.
There was too much to explain and not enough time so again he'd have to summarize and keep it short. However, there was a shift in tone as he began to speak about the cult. His voice became much darker, and drearier the air felt as if it were sucked from the conversation. The tension becoming more so, as he elaborated upon what he knew bringing all the little details to light. He thought back to those flashes of memories from the seal, that gave him all the information about the Mother Cult.
How his clone fought through cultists, and even some amalgamation of flesh and bone to claim that land. He was also rather good at telling a story and putting a spin on it so it came off darker, and more sinister than even he thought it would. He gave Sylvannas a moment to think and collect her thoughts. He had warned her that once he started talking it was hard to make him stop though.
Well, the Mother Cult, from what I know is a rather dangerous organization. I mean, it has "cult" in the name. You don't exactly hear that and think "Oh they must be a respectable bunch." Though in my short time here I've come up against them a few times. They try to spread their influence west, spreading rot, death, decay, and corpses. They were the lot, that caused the Conquerer's End disaster last year when the dead seemed to rise from their graves to consume and devour the living. To the north-east, and even the north-west in lands we've yet laid claim to they perform blood rituals calling on the "Mother" to give them power. In return for their sacrifices, she gifts them with boons, sometimes warping and twisting them into grotesque monsters. I don't know much about their goals yet, but their methods are deplorable and are now my goal to stop. I also look for the Shogun who Fled. Takauji Ashikaga, I have personal matters with him and now know he is allied with the same Mother Cult, who plagues Tobusekai.
Sorry for the wait, had some RL stuff.I told you, strangers are just friends you haven't met.
He would smile at the woman, giving her time to eat.
Well, we have more than enough room, and we could always use help.
Salazzle, the slim salamander would speak in a jovial tone.
Yeah, this one has been working himself ragged trying to keep up with the cult activities.
Sado would continue asking what the woman would prefer to do.
What would you like to be doing? I'm sure we could find a place where you could do the activities you favor.
He found that asking people directly what they liked doing usually got them into the most productive positions.
Healing Factor: Weapon XSorry for the wait, had some RL stuff.
Well it depends on what you need. I'm a decent tracker, and an okay fighter. What is the biggest priority for the village right now?
Another Brick in the Wall
Players Involved: -Colbalt-
Description: You've been conscripted to create a series of walls in the Lost Shores ( 239 ) to create a defense against the possible incursion of the Mother Cult. The defense needs to be strong enough to hold off a considerable army of cultists, undead, and necromancers needed to be at least S rank in power. You are able to create multiple layers to increase the durability of the defense if you so choose or use various other empowerments or elements to increase the potency and strength of the defense.
He set his new ally Sylvanas up with a new mission, one more tailored to her abilities as he left a scroll upon the table. He would look around the Lost Shores getting a feeling for the place as he walked eastward toward the Mother Cult's lands. As he reached the border between his own capital here in Tobusekai and the Mother Cult's lands to the east he paused for a while.Cult of Personality
Players Involved: -Colbalt-
Description: Track down and take out several high ranking members of the Mother Cult. Your mission is to fight three strong individuals to distract and disrupt the activities of the Mother Cult. You can find landmarks of interest to the east of the Lost Shores. Bring back any relevant information you obtain.
