The Pit

The Pit is an abrupt end to Selva Oscura directly to the north; should a traveler make it this far, they will find an immense pit reaching 100 meters down into the earth that spans nearly the entire landmark. Legend has it that the Two Tailed Beast caused immense devastation when it was unleashed upon the Kedoin Alliance by the Kumanoi Empire. The Pit is not suitable for life, and hasn’t been for nearly 500 years. The permanent damage that has been wrought here serves as a scar upon the earth; an eternal reminder of the pains of war that are caused by Tailed Beasts.

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

-Do some light meditation (5)
-Claim a landmark (4)

Summary:
Continuing her adventure through Tobuseki, Nana comes across a huge pit. Reminding her of some memories, she meditates to clear her head, and claims the landmark for personal reasons.




As Nana arrives in the landmarks with Yun, she whistles at the scenery. It was a sight to behold. She was in awe of the small villages and huts that surrounded the hole, its depths fading into am abyss that seemed to empty into nothingness. How did they survive or make a living here? It seemed as if there was little to no life that could be sustained. Sure maybe some flying creatures, but with nothing for them to hunt then they wouldnt stay long.

Nana sat down near the edge, even 5m from the cliff she felt uneasy like it would swallow her up if she misstepped. The giant hole felt ominous, foreboding like it was malicious. Nana shook her head, it was a hole, it didnt have intent, it didnt have feelings, it was just a hole. Nana took a deep breath, letting out the one she didnt realize she was holding, feeling a release of tension as her shoulders slumped in a relaxed position. Yun had taken up a sta ding guard position, simply standing back silently as a protector she she meditsted. He knew better than to interrupt her.
Nana cleared her mind, she would need a clear head for the coming days and weeks ahead. Tobuseki was a dangerous place and it wasnt somewhere to be unprepared. Nana focused on the air around her, despite the gisnt hole and absense of trees and nature because of the hole, it didnt mean that the spirit of the wild was gone. She listened to the breeze blowing around, getting caught in the draft of the hole whipping around as dirt took flight as well caught in the momentum. She took comfort in the small things, how she was still here and would continue onwards.
Nana opened her eyes. Everything was going to be alright and she would continue on and keep pushing forward. It was then something caught her eye, a small.figure shuffling between the makeshift wooden huts.

Standing and travelling over, Nana found an elderly old man, probably in his 50s, tending to a small flower patch infront of a run down old hut. It had broken windows and a door that squeeked as it wobbled on its hinges. Approaching him Nana asked him what he was doing here.

The old man explained that he was a guide, for those that wanted to travel around this hole, because he knew the area quite well. Nana was surprised that anyone would want to visit this empty place, why would they come and see nothing? He smiled as he spoke to her that this land once had a thriving village but it was destroyed after an attack from a tailed beast but that doesnt mean their ancestral homes had any less value. Despite the attack happening over 500 years ago, these traditions kept their familys alive. Nana smiled, it made her happy to know that despite what happened to this landmark, the thriving village was still here in the heart of the old man. Nana explained that she was from the northern continent and she was looking to explore this continent. She wanted to help and support this land to protect its people. Nana thought about how to show her protectuon, wanting to claim this landmark for Shimo, as she felt a personal link to this place. Giving him a small stone with the symbol of shimogakure etched into it she said that she pledged to protect this land, this hole in the hopes that the memories of the families may live on. He thanked her, graciously accepting the protection. The old man then told her about the yearly remembrance night that happens where all the decendants would gather to celebrate life and lives of their families. She had just missed out but now as the protector she would be invited to next years.

Thanking the old man for his time, Nana and Yun would move on, in high spirits on to the next landmark.

LLM.

On getting to the pit, Medusa would sit at its edge, meditating and would try to scout out N'raqi with her sensory. Riku sits beside her and watches.

Special Information: Several prominent cultists have spread Sea of Life throughout Tobusekai, kidnapping women and children and experimenting with the mutagenic Sea of Life that was brought into the world by Tiamat the Mother of Beasts. For the most part, the Cultists have remained quiet, and out of the public eye shrouding themselves in darkness to manipulate and destabilize the Eastern Continent and the Mainland itself through the creation and release of Children and Beasts of Tiamat upon an unexpecting world.

Currently, the locations of only four cultists are known.

K'thir: A young women, who can be found in the Ruined Temple ( 235 )

Medivh: An older man who can be found hidden away in the Shadow Tower ( )

Additionally, they each have access to four basic elements, Yin Release, Yang Release, Kinjutsu, Fuinjutsu, and a high tier ability eg; Tensaigan, Ketsurygan, MS, EMS, Eight Inner Gates, or Seven Heavenly Breaths. Any fight with a cultist must last five turns to be claimable.

This is a special bounty allowing for four separate individuals to undertake it and complete it. Each participant can only choose a single cultist to go after and cannot rechoose once they begin their endeavor. Once a cultist is slain the participant cannot slay another cultist related to the Cult of Personality. This means that this bounty can be done by up to 4 shinobi but cannot be repeated by the same individual. This bounty can be performed by anyone regardless of affiliation.

Cultist


The cultist would sense Medusa and Riku immediately they got to the edge of the pit. Just to fend them off and make it serve as a warning sign to them and not get themselves killed, not that they can even survive though. N'raqi underestimated. The cultist would make hundreds of zombies erupt from the pit and all over the walls of the pit as they climb their way upwards towards Medusa and Riku.


(Kinjutsu Doton Soseijutsu: Shishi Dojō) Forbidden Earth Resurrection Technique: Corpse Soil
Type: Supplementary
Rank: Forbidden
Range: Short-Long
Chakra: 5 per corpse (150) (-10 per turn)
Damage: N/A
Description: This technique is called the "ultimate earth-element resurrection technique" because it focuses upon using the earth itself as a medium to revive corpses. By utilising soil in the local ground, the user can revive the fallen present there in one of two ways. The first version allows the user to seemingly continuously resurrect a large number of slain people as zombies, but with none of their rationality, physical prowess, or techniques at their disposal. They are fairly easy to destroy, capable of enduring little more than Taijutsu and D-Rank Ninjutsu. The amount of zombies raised is directly proportional to the chakra spent to search through the ground and awaken the corpse's remains. Some corpses may not be in a perfect state, being deteriorated or decomposed, in which case, earth will form the missing areas into functional parts. If the technique is deactivated either by the user or if the user is killed, the zombies will immediately turn to dust. The second version allows the user to bring a person back as a perfect resurrection, able to use all their skills from when alive, with the addition of a preset directive the person is forced to obey despite being consciously aware. Unlike the Impure World Reincarnation technique, the soul is not bound to the body nor can the user completely overcome the targets personality. In this case, the user needs access to both a large amount of chakra as well as the fresh, preserved corpse of the target. The limitation of this technique is that, while with Impure World Reincarnation one can summon the pre-prepared revived ninjas at any time and how many times one needs by summoning them, with this technique, the user can only use it once and cannot prepare it beforehand. This means that the user will either need to bring a sealed corpse and perform the technique in the midst of battle or perform it in a fallen enemy who will then be used for as long as is necessary. Another difference is that the revived ninja is not immune to damage and will not regenerate if damaged though injury is not enough to stop it and the corpse will continue to work and function while it has some way to do so. At any time, by performing a Snake hand seal and snapping their fingers, the caster of this technique releases the resurrected targets, turning them into loose soil.
Note: The technique can only be used once.
Note: First version will produce how many corpses the user is willing to pay chakra for, all of which will last until destroyed.
Note: Second version can only be used in one corpse and requires access to a corpse which will not be usable anymore once the technique or the battle ends but that can last while chakra is fueled to sustain it or the technique is ended.
Note: In either cases, defeating the caster of the technique ends the technique.
Note: To use a corpse, the user must have sealed it in an official fight, approved by an RP Moderator, linking to which, upon reviving, is mandatory.
