Valley of Frost

Among the snowy terrain of the Lightning Mountains is a small valley, one that stretches around the edges of the area in a narrow like path. The temperatures here are somewhat warmer than in the mountains above due to the area’s lower geological positioning, but this works in favor of the inhabitants. The locals here have built their homes within the deep, natural caverns of the valley, having access to natural cold water from reservoirs beneath the rock and a small number of natural hotsprings in the lower levels. For sustenance they fish in the narrow, icy streams of the valley and grow a very nutritious type of fungi in the caverns.

Coming from .

Gwen and the trader made their way into the small mountain town just a way down from the abandoned city. It was here the trader was to drop off his good to a buyer and receive some form of payment. The town was quiet, save for the few individuals who were gathering resources or fishing. Many of the people were equally in fear and amazement at Gwen's striking appearance. It wasn't like she hadn't gotten this look before, but rather than make a fuss she followed the man to the edge of the mountain town to a blocked off area. It was shady, but she followed the trader anyways. I guess this was apart of the reason he had requested her help.

"Where exactly are we going?" Gwen asked.

"Well, I guess it's high time I told ya exactly what's going on. Truth is, I've been recovering artifacts from that abandoned city you just so "happened" to take charge of for about 10 years now. It was only recently though I got mixed up with those fellas you took care of and every week, they had me bringing my finding here to this place. They said I wouldn't make it out alive if I didn't do what they asked." The trader was looking around nervously as they reached a large opening to a cavern. As soon as they arrived, a man emerged from the shadows walking from out of the mouth of the cave.

"You're late," The hooded man said as walked over to the trader peering at his wares. Timidly the trader stepped away as Gwen casually stood by watching the ordeal go down. "Looks like your haul was less than satisfactory, may I ask why? No... don't tell me it doesn't even matter. Who is this you've decided to bring along?" The hooded man said before unveiling his face which was wrapped in bandages.

"Well Kogu-sama, this is kinda the reason why the haul's so light. This lady has taken over the territory and thing haven't quite been the same since..." Gwen was perplexed at the fact that this rat had obviously brung her into an unwanted spotlight.

"Oh is that so, and you are?" Kogu was displeased at the fact that someone was intervening in his operations, but for someone to have effortless subjugated the thugs he had sent to enforce his scheme was rather interesting to him.

"I'm the b!%&#, you don't wanna mess with," Gwen said eyeing Kogu, she didn't know this man's intent, but she could tell from his chakra he was a very powerful individual. Kogu laughed at this response and he could tell Gwen meant business.

"Well, it seems you are not from around here, so let me show you some hospitality. I'll give you the pleasure of choosing the fate of the trader who ratted you out. It's entirely up to you if he lives or dies." Kogu picked up a small trinket and analyzed it half-heartedly as if giving Gwen time to come to a decision. But there was no need to think, as Gwen's sword had already pierced the trader's heart.

"I LIKE YOU!" Kogu shouted, he ran up and hugged Gwen, who quickly shrugged him off as she swung the blade so the blood of the filthy rat wouldn't soil the beautifully crafted piece.

"I haven't decided if I like you enough yet not to kill you, so before I decide to just kill you anyways, I'm going to leave. This was a waste of my time."

"On that note then, Otsutsuki Gwendolyn," said the man who tone became quite serious. "I know some very important information you may want regarding this land that may prove useful to you in the future including information on the whereabouts about your dear Otsutsuki clansmen. However, you'll have to do something for me first. Do we have a deal? "

Gwen became anxious at the fact this man Kogu seemed to know so much about her. He'd just preserved his life for a while longer.

"What is it you want then?" Gwen questioned.

"Return to Dainaishi, I'll have your instructions there." Kogu disappeared in a plume of smoke as he said this, leaving Gwen alone with the dead trader. Disgusted by the filth, she took a look at his wares only to see it was nothing more than rubbish, to begin with. It was obvious the trader was just a key to get Gwen to this area. This was turning out to be a much more exciting then she thought.

She began to return with post-haste to see what lied next.

This post marks the beginning of a joint mission with Serpent and I forming a two-man team.

Synopsis: Gwendolyn has recovered the artifact that Kogu had tasked her to find. Her partner Riku had finally arrived in Dainaishi and had agreed to help Gwen get information out of the man to find out exactly what he was up to. The pair arrives and eventually capture Kogu, gaining clarification on exactly who Kogu was. But at what cost?

Make all the necessary plans and arrangements for your Clan (4);
Spy on an important target and remain undetected (4)
Capture an important target (4);
Steal valuable information from the enemy (4)

Mission Rank: A

Clan Storyboard Mission: Kogu the Mysterious​



Arriving from

Gwendolyn was prepared for the weather this time, wearing a large white cloak and hood that protected her from the snow which was downpouring over the land. How anyone could live among such an obnoxious substance was beyond her comprehension. There was a local tavern however that most of the locals congregated in when not out supporting themselves. Riku was following closely behind her and turning to him she unveiled the first part of her plan.

"So, first things first, we've gotta get more information on this Kogu guy. He seems pretty influential around here, if you have any suggestions for how to go about that, I'd like to hear em. Other than that, I'm gonna make my way into this bar, for investigative purposes of course!" Gwen said enthusiastically.

Kogu never gave her an official meeting time, so it was up to Riku and Gwen to find out more details on his whereabouts before he could do the same to them. No better place to get information, than having a few drink with the locals. As she and Riku entered the bar, it was as lively as ever. Gwen appreciated how much warmer it was thanks to the huge fireplace burning, the comforting heat wafting throughout the area. Gwen was already disgustedly uncomfortable being in such close quarters with humans, but for the sake of her goal she stifled any attempts to slaughter everyone other than the barkeep. Riku's voice echoing in her head about keeping a low profile.

She motioned for the two of them to sit at a surprisingly empty corner away from the commotion so the two could discuss their next courses of action.

Coming From:

Prepared for the weather, Riku was sure to dress heavy wearing a large bear pelt cloak and hood that protected him from the thick blanket of snow, down-pouring over the land. He couldn't help but enjoy himself, snug in his coat. Such a wonderful feeling, Riku could surely settle down in a landscape such as this, relaxing next to a fire, it would be splendid.

"I agree, we need to get more information on Kogu. We need to know if he's the top of the chain or if he takes orders from someone above him. Before we make a move, we should be sure who's toes we're stepping on. I'd say our best bet would be to listen in on the locals, see if anyone mentions anything about Kogu or other figures of importance. If time is urgent, we can also inquire about Kogu, but that runs the risk of word getting back to him, about someone asking."

Riku would enter into the tavern with Gwen. Taking a seat in the far corner he would turn to the waiter and order some warm tea and sweet cookies, his favorite combination during cool weather. A simple meal that would remind him of home. With his Rinnegan, Riku would look around, nonchalant as to not draw any attention, he would notice a figure standing near a door by the back of the tavern, their chakra heavy, something unnatural without training.

"It would appear that someone is guarding an entrance into another part of the tavern at 8 o'clock. Perhaps you can use your eyes to pear into the room?"

As the waiter leaves the tea and cookies on the table, Riku would take a sip to warm up and then proceed to eat a cookie, the taste out of this world, the expression of pure joy plastered on his face as he takes another sip. Yep, this truly is a place Riku could settle down. It's the little joys that make it all worth it.

Using her Byakugan, Gwen could see everything happening in the tavern. she made sure her face was hidden from attention by her hood. She never expected Kogu to be sitting casually at a table with a number of other individuals. They seemed to be quite powerful just based on the nature of their chakras. Charging in wouldn't be a smart move with the busy tavern, it would only serve to bring unwanted attention.

"There's a meeting going on behind those doors, and one of the attendees is definitely Kogu. Who would have thought we would run into him so soon. We've gotta see what it is they are discussing. We can wait it out, or figure out some way to gt inside that room unnoticed."

"The only way I could think of would be my chameleon summon, that way we couldn't be detected even by sensory ninja. However he is much two large to maneuver into the room unnoticed."

Riku would eat another cookie as he contemplates a strategy. Deducing possible outcomes based on Gwens and his own abilities he attempts to think of a way. However with the unknown variables of the other people inside the meeting. Riku thinks it best to avoid an all out conflict.

"We don't know who these other people are. Perhaps we could retreat outside, hide within my chameleon and create some type of diversion to drawl them out?"

Riku says this knowing it poses a risk, He thinks of another option. Perhaps something less straight forward. He looks around the bar as he drinks some more Tea. Looking over at one of the Barkeep it clicks, surely someone in the tavern, perhaps and owner would know about the meeting. Judging from the condition of the tavern and the owner wouldn't be sitting in with important people. The relationship would be more or someone trying to make his way up the ranks. Scum.

"Can you see anyone in any of the other rooms who could resemble an owner, perhaps someone in an office. We could get information out of them so we can have a better understanding on our situation. The choice is yours"

Nodding in approval, Gwen continued to use her Byakugan to take note of the entire building. Riku was right in the fact that a fight breaking out this soon with so many unknown individuals would lead them nowhere. Soon Gwen had a complete mental map of the tavern was a two-story establishment with its various rooms and closets. Nothing out of the ordinary but she could see that there was an office space located directly behind the bar area. Getting back there unnoticed would prove problematic with all these patrons. Revealing that to Riku, she agreed that the best course would be to follow his plan and wait it out. However, she needed a drink, all the waiting around definitely didn't suit her abrasive nature.

"Well at least, let's have a round of drinks while the situation develops yeah? Wait for me outside, I'm going to try something." Gwen said as she performed the Transformation Technique causing only her horns to disappear as she pulled back her hood. Standing up, she went over to the bar and leaned against the counter, signaling for the barkeep. The bartender who walked over was a young male who was awestricken as soon as he saw Gwen.

"Hi there miss, what can I get you?" The young man said shyly as he fumbled with the glass he was cleaning.

"Hmph, well I can tell a nervous man when I see one. You ain't never seen a woman before I'm guessing? Give me a bottle of your strongest sake," Gwen replied. The boy turned and Gwen was able to tap him on the shoulder as she did. In touching the barkeep's shoulder, she placed the man under her total control as she utilized her Puppet Cursing Sphere technique to totally subjugate the unsuspecting human. "On second thought, I'm good thanks anyways." Gwen walked away as the barkeep under her complete control was made to walk to the back room where the office was. Now mentally linked, Gwen was able to explore his mind and gain a large quantity of information. The barkeep was actually serving as a lookout for Kogu and his accomplices and was to trip a silent alarm that would alert them in case of trouble. Luckily, Gwendolyn had gotten to him first. Further exploration of his mind, gave Gwendolyn more details about the nature of the meeting. Apparently, Kogu was aware that Gwendolyn was apart of the Otsutsuki Clan and there was a high price for any information leading to her capture. Dead or Alive.

Were humans really daring to uprise against her? Gwen scoffed at the idea, but knew all to well the only reason she was a target was that she wasn't nearly as powerful as her predecessors before her. However, there was no way someone like Kogu was able to obtain this much information on her alone. Someone was assisting him or more than likely pulling the strings behind his whole operation. Gwen had obviously made some enemies and stepped on the toes of someone when she overtook Dainaishi. The question was, who's toes had she stepped on? Dainaishi had been known to be a lawless area due to the operation of rogue ninjas. That was until Gwen and the Death Eaters came around.

She walked out as she continued to manipulate the bartender who went to the back room and retrieved a key to the inn. Gwen may need to come back to ransack the bar's stash of booze when she had some free time. After having the bartender bring her the key, she commanded him to walk far away from the area and sleep.

Techniques used:

(Henge no Jutsu) - Transformation Technique
Type: Supplementary
Rank: E
Range: Short
Chakra: 5
Damage: N/A
Description: A Ninjutsu technique, which every ninja learns at the Ninja Academy. Henge allows the ninja to transform themselves into any person or object. This allows the ninja to move with stealth or to trick their opponents.

( Ningyō Noroitama ) - Puppet Cursing Technique
Type: Offensive/Supplementary/Defensive
Rank: S
Range: Short - Mid
Chakra: 40
Damage: 80
Description: The user molds his chakra into the form of a green-coloured sphere. This sphere is held and can be seen as similar to the Rasengan in appearance. By sending it at an opponent, the user can use these spheres to temporarily take control of an opponent's body, effectively turning them into a puppet, with limitations of course. It also has tactical purposes, allowing the user to read the minds of those it enters, mentally linking to the user. These spheres can also have damaging effects, causing damage if used as an offensive sphere of chakra, similar to Rasengan. The user cannot use it for both puppet mimicry and to damage the opponent in the same turn. The user can alternatively use the offensive variant through his actual puppets, not the ones used from this jutsu.
Note: Cannot be used to force the opponents to kill or injure themselves.
Note: Only two puppets can be controlled at a time via this method and up to Kage ranked. Hold over the puppets last for only a single turn.
Note: Can only be used by Otsutsuki Clan bios.

Riku watches in amusement as Gwen makes attempts at womanly charm. Taking control of the man and using him as a puppet was a smart play. Walking outside with Gwen, Riku would learn of the bounty on her. Taking this new information into account he would begin formulating a plan.

"We need to get him outside, and alone. I will turn you in for your bounty, or rather, a clone of you. As I collect on it we would likely meet face to face. When that happens, your clone will explode. I will protect them and counter act the explosion. This will allow me to gain their trust, if only temporally. Then, you will make your presence known outside using your powerful intent to kill. This will draw them outside, I will join them as a false ally. As the battle begins, we will divide the group. Separating Kogu from the others. I will gain the knowledge we need from him and then join in on the battle.. You'll need to fend off his goons for a while before I can aid you in the fight."

Riku then waits to see what Gwen thinks of the plan.

Riku then waits to see what Gwen thinks of the plan.
Trusting Riku's intentions on the basis since he had more of a knack for infiltration and espionage she created an explosive shadow clone to aid Riku's plan.

"Well I hope you know what you're doing," Gwen said as she retreated into an empty alley adjacent to the tavern. With her Byakugan she'd be able to keep tabs on the situation in the case things didn't go according to her partner's plan.

(Dōjutsu: Byakugan) Eye Technique: The All Seeing White Eye
Type: Supplementary
Rank: C
Range: Short-Long
Chakra: 15 (+5 per turn to keep active)
Damage: N/A
Description: The kekkeigenkai intrinsic to both the Hyūga and Ōtsutsuki clans—descendants of Kaguya Ōtsutsuki. Those who possess this dōjutsu have it manifested as eyes with featureless white irides and no visible pupils. And when activated, the pupils become more distinct and the veins near their temples bulge. To activate the dōjutsu, Hyuga but not Ōtsutsuki clan members are initially obliged to use a rather long and specific sequence of handseals: Horse → Tiger → Boar → Hare → Rat → Dog → Horse → Dog → Hare → Rat → Boar → Snake. But once activated, the dōjutsu user is endowed with a range of skills.


To start, an activated Byakugan gives the user a near 360º diameter field of vision bar one blind spot at the back of the neck, above the first thoracic vertebra. Its vision can penetrate through any solid objects or obstructions, and likewise remains unaffected by blinding interferences. But that being said, certain barriers and the like may distort its perception. In addition, it is able to follow high-speed movements, which enables those with this dōjutsu to analyze their foes' actions and better react to them. The Byakugan is also able to see chakra to a higher degree than the Sharingan and ergo, identify where a person's chakra signature originates from. Beyond that, it can discern certain types of clones from the real person. And its ability to see chakra is in fact so acute that those who possess this dōjutsu are even able to see the chakra pathway system and the 361 tenketsu that comprise it. The Hyūga clan has gone so far as to develop their unique Gentle Fist style in order to capitalize on this particular ability.


Note: Hyuga clan bios of at least Sannin rank become able to passively activate their dōjutsu upon one month having passed since Gentle Fist training concluded. Ōtsutsuki bios never need to expend a move in order to activate it.
Note: While traversing the NW, bios with activated Byakugan are able to see up to two 2 adjacent landmarks away while those of sage rank can see as far as three away, but this doesn't extend beyond an ocean landmark.

(Bunshin Bakuha) - Shadow Clone Explosion
Rank: A
Type: Supplementary
Range: Short-Mid
Chakra Cost: 30
Damage Points: 60
Description:At first glance the clone appears to be a normal tangible Bunshin, but the user can detonate the clone at any time to form a very large explosion. (This shadow clone variant can only use normal ninjutsu, and Taijutsu).
Note:Must already know shadow clone jutsu to use this jutsu.

Riku would start by summoning his Chameleon. It would camoflauge itself under a ridge side to evade snow from giving away it's position. Riku would then bound the clone and enter into the tavern. Walking over to the door with the man standing in the way.

"I'm here to collect on a bounty."

Riku would pull off a hood showing the captured Gwen. The man will then smile as he opens the door to let Riku through. Now accompanied by two other people. The group walk down the stairs to the meeting room. Riku places Gwen down on the table and looks around the room unsure on who is whom.

Unknown Man 1: "Well, that didn't take long."

Unknown Woman: "Perhaps she was a push over after all?"

Unknown Man 2: "If that's even her, it could be someone else for all we know."

Unknown Man 3: "Well, Kogu is the only one who knows what she looks like."

Kogu: "It's her, there is no doubt about it. I've just interested on how you captured her so quickly.... uh."

Riku: "Oh, my name is Riku. I have my ways. She wasn't as tough as she claimed to be."

Unknown Woman: "Well, if Kogu agrees then I guess we should pay you."

Suddenly, the clone can be seen inflating. Everyone appeared to have impressive reaction time as they all began to move into defensive positions. However, thanks to Riku knowing what was about to happen and having timed it perfectly, He would turn over the clone and seal it and it's explosion into himself as it happens, reducing the blast significantly. It would save, or at very least protect the people inside the room.

Unknown Man 3: "That was close, it would appear you have some skill after all."

Unknown Man 2: "An explosive clone, they have limited range. She must be near by."

Riku: "Damn, How could she duke me?"

Unknown Man 3: "Don't sweat it kid, we didn't expect it easy."

Kogu: "She may be more of a problem then I anticipated. We'll need to send a message to.. Him. About this attempt on our lives."

Riku would stand watching, wondering who they are talking about and waiting for Gwen to create the detraction outside to draw them out. Surely she heard the blast of her clone signalling for the next step in the plan.

Rank: A
Type: Supplementary
Range: Short
Chakra cost: 30
Damage points: N/A
Description: Nagato will activate the Animal path which grants him the ability to summon various creatures to help aide in battle. Each creature served a different purpose in battle. Each animal summon also has the Rinnengan and as such Nagato is able to see through their eyes as well. Each animal had various body piercings as well, suggesting that they too were under his control. The user needs to clap his hands in order to do the summons, not needing the traditional blood sacrifice and can summon 2 animals at the same time.
Note: Can only be used by Nagato biographies for the activation of the path and will remain continuouslty activated.

Passively Activated: (Gakidō) - Preta Path
Rank: A
Type: Supplementary
Range: Short
Chakra cost: 30
Damage points: N/A
Description: The user activates the Preta Path which grants the ability to absorb any chakra based attack using the Blocking Technique Absorption Seal, the user could absorb an infinite amount of chakra in any form. And the technique can be used in direct physical contact and absorb their chakra from their body or to create a barrier around them to absorb incoming Ninjutsu techniques.
Note: Can only be used by Rinnegan biographies for the activation of the path and will remain continously activated.

(Fūjutsu Kyūin) - Blocking Technique Absorption Seal
Rank: S
Type: Defensive
Range: Short
Chakra cost: 40 (-40 per turn if used on an enemy)
Damage points: N/A
Description: A highly advanced sealing technique that is capable of absorbing any chakra, regardless of any shape or nature transformation, and dispersing it within one's body by spinning the chakra within one's body in the opposite direction. As a result, this technique can absorb any ninjutsu based technique, regardless of power, without harming the user. Should the user get close enough to grab the opponent, the barrier can absorb chakra right out of an individual's body, effectively draining them (similar to the Chakra Absorption Technique). If the user is weakened or injured, he can use this technique to absorb chakra and replenish his chakra resources and restore his stamina and chakra flow. If used to absorb Bijuu chakra, the user can even regenerate, using the special vitality of that powerful chakra to power his body and regenerate. However, the user will also be vulnerable to the effects of chakra he cannot control, such as the sage chakra. Both these aspects, however, pertain to a direct contact absorption and not technique absorption.
Note: Can only be used by Rinnegan bios with the (Gakidō) - Preta Path active.
Note: Can only be used 6 times
Note: Can absorb any Ninjutsu regardless of rank, nature or other properties as long as its within the same timeframe.

(Kuchiyose no Jutsu: Kyojin kamereon) - Summoning Technique: Giant Chameleon
Type: Supplementary
Rank: A-Rank
Range: Short
Chakra Cost: 30
Damage: N/A
Description:
The user will summon a Giant Chameleon with a sort of snake for a tail. Like all of Nagato's summons, it has a number of body piercings that link its chakra to that of the user and makes it so that it manifests the Rinnegan. Much like a real-life chameleon, this creature can also blend with its surroundings for camouflage, so perfectly that it renders itself completely invisible to other viewers around. This ability has been used by the Animal Path of Pain to step inside the chameleon's mouth and attack his opponents by surprise. The camouflage is so perfect that it hides the summons chakra and even that of those inside it from any sensing technique, even sage mode users, making it not only a visual camouflage but also a sensory one. The snake-tail can be used as a prehensile limb, to be able to grab and capture intended targets for Pain with its tongue
Note: can only be summoned by Uzumaki Nagato and 6 Paths of Pein bios.
Note: can only be summoned once




Chakra: 1500 - = 1370

Riku would start by summoning his Chameleon. It would camoflauge itself under a ridge side to evade snow from giving away it's position. Riku would then bound the clone and enter into the tavern. Walking over to the door with the man standing in the way.

"I'm here to collect on a bounty."

Riku would pull off a hood showing the captured Gwen. The man will then smile as he opens the door to let Riku through. Now accompanied by two other people. The group walk down the stairs to the meeting room. Riku places Gwen down on the table and looks around the room unsure on who is whom.

Unknown Man 1: "Well, that didn't take long."

Unknown Woman: "Perhaps she was a push over after all?"

Unknown Man 2: "If that's even her, it could be someone else for all we know."

Unknown Man 3: "Well, Kogu is the only one who knows what she looks like."

Kogu: "It's her, there is no doubt about it. I've just interested on how you captured her so quickly.... uh."

Riku: "Oh, my name is Riku. I have my ways. She wasn't as tough as she claimed to be."

Watching from afar as the clone exploded Riku dealt with it as intended. It seems the signal had been casted, so Gwen proceeded with drawing the attention of everyone outside. Gwen armed her self with a couple of explosive tags, throwing them at the door of the tavern. The resulting explosion blew a large hole in the front door. Gwen standing in plain view began projecting her killing intent towards Kogu in order to lure him out.

It seemed the bait was taken as many humans began to run at the site of Gwen and Kogu soon appeared with his entourage from the back of the building. The group stepped over the debris and bodies looking on at Gwen who had her hands on the back of her head acting as if she played no part in the explosion. Kogu laughed manically as he saw her. It took Gwen alot of willpower to stay her hand and not be provoked by him.

"Well, Gwendolyn seems you don't die easily." Kogu walked over and stood beside Riku. "Riku was it? I've got an idea, I'll double the bounty if you take care of her here and now. That shouldn't be too much of a problem with that beautiful Rinnengan of yours, am I right?" Kogu said blatantly, obviously trying to coax Riku into showing more of his unique abilities.

(Sakki) - Killing Intent
Rank: D - S
Type: Supplementary
Range: Short - Long
Chakra cost: N/A
Damage points: N/A
Description: Killing Intent pertains to the ability of the user giving off their pure killing intention and having it affect their opponent and others around them up to the point of paralyzing them. When the Killing Intent is particularly strong, it can even give the victim visions of their own gruesome death, nausea, pain, etc. This can cause the Killing Intent to be confused with a genjutsu, despite not being a genjutsu at all; simply a showcase of intention and power. The target will feel as if facing an overwhelming enemy and, even if not a sensor, will suddenly feel the pressure of the users chakra and its magnitude, making the effect that much more dramatic. To effectively be used, the user needs to focus on his target and concentrate on the killing intent towards it, meaning that one must see the target and be focused on it. The strength of the Killing Intent is dependent on many factors and go through several levels. If a difference in rank smaller than 2 ranks exist, the enemy will feel only the pressure and the ominous presence of their dark intentions. Its enough to lose your grasp on a weapon or stay clinched to it (depending on the situation) or even to hesitate in an attack, stumble or mess up a handseal, all depending on the situation and proximity. The effect is small and normally not that significant but can be effectively used to pressure enemies into making a mistake. If a difference of 2 ranks or more exist, the enemy will be frozen, almost unable to move as the overwhelming killing intent dominates their own conscious and riddles them with nightmarish versions of death. The paralyzation gradually weakens as time passes and can only be maintained while the user is focused on the target. The further away the target, the weaker it is and it can only fully paralyze a target within short range. Similarly, the more targets one focuses on, the weaker the effect is in each one (divinding the effects equally between the number of targets). Lastly, the stronger the user is in relation to the target, the stronger the effect will be. The target can counter Killing Intent directed at it through pain, "mind cleansing" techniques or their own Killing Intent.
Note: Intensity of technique depends on the rank of the user, distance to target and number of targets one is focusing on
Note: Can only be used once
Note: Lasts only while the user is focusing on it and while focusing on it the user can't mold chakra

CP: 1395

This post marks the beginning of my C-rank mission utilizing this storyboard elements:

Put the Clan’s interests first (2)

Summary: An Introductory mission to bring Menma the new and mysterious Jinchuuriki of the Nine Tails into the NW. He appears before a small population and makes himself clear about who is now in control of the region and what he expects as a leader.




Coming from 175
Claiming Landmark

Menma arrived in the Valley of Frost with one goal in mind. To recruit the inhabitants of this area to his cause one way or another. If he was going to unite the Land of Lightning and eventually the entire Ninja World under one banner he'd personally would have to see to matters in order to accomplish his goals by whatever means. Menma was only a boy when the Kyuubi unleashed untold destruction upon Chungusu and the Freehold of Hanguri. Miraculously the beast was defeated and had been sealed within Menma's mother at some point in the past and now 8 years later here he stood as the Jinchuuriki of the Nine Tails. His destiny was now intertwined with the whole of the Ninja World itself, and as this world's self proclaimed saviour he would see a new world rise from the ashes.

Menma was like any other child who grew up with a mother and father, but unfortunately he had succumb to the evil nature of the Demon Fox within him. He hated how this world fought over the power of the Tailed Beasts for their own selfish measures and it was Menma's own hatred of those that looked down on him as the host of the 9 Tailed Demon Menma had recently fled his home in the Land of Lightning and had took it upon himself to make the world a place of peace. Menma stood on a cliff overlooking the valley he could see people fishing in the streams, children playing in the snow. It reminded him of home, but he didn't dwell on that fact for long. It was time to complete his mission so he could continue on his journey. Menma donned his Kitsune mask before he finally jumped down the cliff side and landed among the people. Several gasp and screams happened as Menma's abrupt and not subtle landing startled the many people who weren't used to outsiders suddenly appearing before them. The screams caused many of the men in the village to pour out of the caverns and take aim at him while others suddenly surrounded him from all sides showing a much larger population than expected. The warmer climate of this region was almost as if it was some oasis hidden in the snow. This area had been scouted many times before, and Menma was particularly interested in the nutritional fungi which the people of this region were known to grow. However he would have to find out more about that another time. He had more pressing matters at hand as several hand to hand weapons were being held up to him threateningly.

"Look, I'm not here to cause any trouble, I simply wanna talk is all." Menma started as he held his hands up in surrender. He was met with several spears from those who were spearfishing in the river and soon he noticed several more people looking out from the various cave entrances that lined the valley.

"We don't associate with outsiders, now go!" Said one older male among the crowd.

Menma laughed as he shook his head before retorting to the crowd. "I guess you guys don't understand this isn't an ultimatum, I'm bringing the world to it's knees and you're either with me or against me at this point. Now, we can do this the easy way or the hard way." Many of the villagers shouted in protest, as Menma could hear them shout curse words at him and call him every name under the snowy peaks that towered around them. Suddenly someone from the caverns shot a arrow at him, which Menma quickly caught between his fingers and snapped as women and children were ushered away as the inhabitants opted to protect their home first. I guess he's have to do it the hard way after all, which he preferred anyways. Menma would entertain himself for a bit as he quickly side stepped the swing of a axe before countering his attacker with a knee to the stomach causing him to double over which, Menma then proceeded to grab the man and threw him into the few who were now closing in from behind.

Suddenly silence and horror swept the inhabitants as they quickly began to scurry backwards as they could feel the Killing Intent of the Nine Tails from deep within Menma. It was a fear that was known all to well to some of the inhabitants who had actually fled to this valley from the Nine Tails' attack 8 years ago. For those not aware of the demonic aura, they knew the end for them was near if they didn't do what this guy said. Several of the villagers were either too scared to move or had passed out all together out of sheer terror dropping their weapons at their feet.

"Now that I have your attention, you all are now under my protection and this area is officially under my control. Don't disappoint me." Menma said lifting up his mask and giving his newest recruits a look at their savior. "I've got a special project in mind and you all have been selected to carry it out. You know the area up just North of here, the hidden city of Dainashi? Well we're really gonna need some renovations to take place and to do that, I need workers. All able bodied men please report to this location when you get a chance."

Menma fished a scroll out of his robes and threw it towards the crowd, where a man quickly grabbed it and began to look over it. Menma couls see he was too scared to find out what would happen if someone didn't grab it. Menma had said all he needed to say and from the look left on those faces he could be sure that people would show up to Danaishi to officially return the once abandoned city to its former glory. Menma would hope matters didn't have to escalate as he set off to recruit others to his cause. No one could say a word after Menma left, leaving the inhabitants in wonder at who the boy was. They would follow his directions for now.
