[We're back after a few years of silence. Most of my original team is gone, but I, your humble GM, remain. I've been working on a more streamlined version of the game, and while it's not finished, it's ready for public testing. So, let's get started.][For those unaware of the premise of the Five Nations series of quests and the game itself, we take the widely accepted as good setting of Naruto, take away the massive power creep, take the universal strength level down, and remove the tailed beasts.]You are Hikari Araki, a promising young woman of sixteen years from the Hidden Sand Village. Through great struggle you have reached the rank of Chunin, serving your Nation with pride and honor. War between your nation, the Hidden Stone Village, and the Hidden Leaf has ended within your lifetime, but already you feel the climate of the village has shifted again towards a wartime preparation, coming hot off the heels of the recovery efforts.You have achieved this position of moderate standing through your good work. However, your family history molds you as it does everyone.Your parents are...>Dead>Alive>Adoptive>Kekkei Genkai Users

>>35021273>Alive>Implying you won't leave the moment things start to get interesting
>>35021273>>Adoptive>>Kekkei Genkai Usersjust for variety against present votesI don't even know what KG user means
>>35021424>>35021440With your parents dead, you grew up very lonely. The Village supported you, financially, as soon as you joined the Academy, but without parents, you had a hard time getting by. However, this was eased by the presence of your older brother, who helped serve as a father role.Your parents did leave you one thing, however, an incredible gift. Both you and your brother possess the Jiton Kekkei Genkai, the ability to convert your chakra into magnetic forces, allowing you to control metal. The two of you were taken better care of than other children your age in similar situations because of the prized blood you carried. In the Academy you began to develop a person. Though you attended all of the lessons and performed in them, you did well, specifically in....>Taijutsu>Ninjutsu>Genjutsu>All of them, I'm a Genius>None of them, I'm an idiot.>>35021521[Stability in life is going to be the biggest help to maintaining a smoothly running quest.]

>>35021589Well it's a free power, no matter how shit it is.
>>35021568>>35021570>>35021577Though your Genjutsu was considered to be lacking, you wrote it off as something that was just extremely hard to do in the first place, and really threw yourself into your Taijutsu and Ninjutsu training.

>>35021622[Jutsu are the magic ninja spells that are used for combat. Strength means our portfolio will be smaller, but each individual one will be better. Breadth would mean that we know many more Jutsu than is considered average.]>>35021612>>35021630>>35021634>>35021648You focused primarily on speed for your tactics. You decided to work on being light on your feet and devastatingly fast with your hands and feet. You also didn't do much to study more jutsu than the absolute basics, learning two village favorite Wind Style Jutsu but, primarily, you focused on maximizing your magnetic powers.As you grew during your time as a Genin you saw and fought many different shinobi who used many different styles. This influenced you to mature your own abilities and focus your career down the path you feel it is best suited for.Your primary weapon is...>Kunai, traditional and always useful>Shuriken, thrown weapons master>Tanto, short and stealthy, more blade than a kunai.>Kama, deep cutting and cruel>Neko-Te, vicious and bloody claws>Chokuto, long sword to rival the samurai.>An advanced weapon that requires a lot of training.
>>35021729This guy.>wear metal armor>Pull metal armor whichevere way we want>we can now fly
>>35021750Senbon (The weapon haku uses, used also for acupuncture), that should compliment our blood line shit.
>>35021750Kunai. We are going to reverse magnetic field those little worthless throwing knives into people.OP should let us have a tanto though. All ninjas have tantos.
>>35021772ThisI want our character to look like haku cause haku was cool as fuck(Am I the only one who thought he looked cool instead of being either repulsed or aroused by his appearance?)
>>35021772Haku a shit. You might have a point though. We could do acupuncture and shit and fuck with people's energy fields. Chakra now a magnet.
>>35021750>Neko-Te, vicious and bloody claws
>>35021750Chain Weaponry (specifically Kama).It's exactly what it says on the tin: A melee weapon with a chain attached so it can be used at medium range, not just melee. With it made entirely out of metal, and our own Jiton...
>>35021772This, far me useful than fucking shruishits or Kunai
>>35021749OP said the general powerlevels have been toned down, I assume that also applies to other bloodline shit.>>35021750>>Kunai, traditional and always useful>>Tanto, short and stealthy, more blade than a kunai.Every ninja should keep shuriken on them though, especially magnet ninjas
>>35021772Sounds pretty badass, especially since we're focused on speed with our hands as well. More dakka.
>>35021825Not really. Irl they have zero range.
>>35021750>An advanced weapon that requires a lot of training coi... i mean senbonTime to go railgun route.
>>35021812ThisChain weaponry is normally impractical, but we have the exact ability needed to change that.>Mein negro
>>35021772Seconding that.>>35021808Thing is, is if we go with any other ranged weapon, we can't easily pull it through the enemies' body, with Senbon it should be far easier to cripple our enemy by filling them with metal
>>35021812Seconding instead of or in addition to >>35021827we can restrain with our speed and bloodline too
>>35021772thissenbon and razor blades everywhere
>>35021844We're Ninja, we THROW them, and we counter the enemy by throwing them.Not fucking hard.>>35021772This.
>everyone going for special snowflakeOh well, guess that's what I get for not samefagging
>>35021880lol, no shit you throw them. They are too light to have useful range.>>35021848Yea, I am down with that.
>>35021926Not sure anyone is samefagging, it's just not a bad idea. The chain isn't a bad idea either.
>>35021825>>35021808>>35021772>>35021806You decided to use a very specialist weapon. The minute needle-like senbon, used for acupuncture, become deadly unerring darts in the hands of a Jiton user like you. However, because of their small size, using them for melee is unwieldy, and you do always keep kunai, shuriken, and a tanto nearby for situations where your senbon are not the best tool.You have, however, eyed the kusari-gama with lustful eyes from time to time, knowing that the steel snake dance of the weapon would be perfect with you. It is a future goal to be sure of.With your weapons and Jutsu established, your position in fights was clear. You sat back, while your team-mates engaged the enemy and, despite the difficulty of hitting a target who was using an ally as cover, your shots rarely missed their mark once they were hit even a single time. Your Jonin sensei was proud of your work in the team.In a team setting, what Role do you take...>Suppression, you stay back and throw an overwhelming amount of projectiles to pin down enemy movement.>Tactician, you watch the battle and, through the use of wire, chain, precision strikes, and your magnet style, both save friends and hinder foes>Squad Leader, you lay out the battle plan, and through your foresight, you are able to set up deadly Combination Strikes that quickly lead to a foe's downfall.>Devastation, you use your Jiton to rain death on everyone in an area with powerful AoE effects.
>>35021950Why not both? With our ability, Senbon becomes an effective ranged alternative to the kunai, and the chain kama makes for a pretty good melee weapon.
>>35021950Sure it's not a bad idea, using liquid mercury isn't either once we get good enough control over our bloodline, but I hope that is too edgy even for this quest
>>35021926it's naruto, if you're not a special snowflake you're nothing.Even the best character is a negative special snowflake. (rock lee is "special" in the sense he can't do something everyone else can)
>>35021968>Tacticiancause shikamaru is the only of 3 good characters in nurutu
>>35021968None of them really strike me as our forte, perhaps an assassin alike instead?
>>35021968>PrecisionOur job is to hit the opponent once. When they've got a needle in them, we either finish them ourselves or immobilize them for the others/live capture.We should get some pressure-point knowledge, at some point.
>>35021971Looks like it might be heading that way. >>35021968Muh assassin. (ib4 edgy)
>>35021968>>Suppression, you stay back and throw an overwhelming amount of projectiles to pin down enemy movement.>>Tactician, you watch the battle and, through the use of wire, chain, precision strikes, and your magnet style, both save friends and hinder foesmix those two together, and the very occasional>>Devastation, you use your Jiton to rain death on everyone in an area with powerful AoE effects.if we're in tough shit or somethingwtf where did my number captchas go ;_;

>>35022049>PrecisionEvery party needs a rogue.
>>35022049Precision + Devastator
>>35022049I still prefer tacticianusing magnets to make traps seems like a cool idea that could workHonestly tactician+precision would be bet bet. Trap people with wire/chain and shit, and murder the shit out of them
>>35022049>PrecisionHigh DPS against a singular enemy. Glass cannon ftw
>>35022097If we could do both, I'd definitely go for that.
>>35022049and that ends up giving us a five man band
>>35022049I still prefer precision, it just seems what the char is built for, but I don't mind mixing or whatever.
>>35022089THISOUR BUILD FITS IT SO WELL
>>35022119Not really. We have a crowd control, a high DPS, and a tank. If one of the others is a healer, we have everything we could want.

I actually like this fag's idea: >>35022097
>>35022167add in the occasional suppression maybe?>>35022153
>>35022097>>35022109>>35022095>>35022087>>35022083In a team you are the Squad Leader's wet-dream. Your massive tactical ability, tagging someone slyly with your magnetic ability, drawing them out from their squad, and then when they're exposed, restraining them for your execution, makes you extremely valuable. For the sneaky nature of your techniques and the killing ability of your reputation, among Genin and Chunin you are called Hikari the Scorpion. Your sting comes from parts unseen and leaves the victim dead before they even know it hit them.As a parting gift from your Jonin mentor they offer to teach you one of their vital skills. Gen Sensei teaches us....>Puppetry, though it is so difficult you only learned the basics.>Poison, adding poisons and the ability to develop them and add them to your senbon increase your lethality greatly.>Chain Weapons, you can use a chain as either a bludgeon, a tripwire, or if you're feeling vicious, a noose.
>>35021968>>Tactician, you watch the battle and, through the use of wire, chain, precision strikes, and your magnet style, both save friends and hinder foes
>>35022238CHAIN WEAPONSHoly shit, it's just icing on the cake at this point.
>>35022238>Chain Weapons, you can use a chain as either a bludgeon, a tripwire, or if you're feeling vicious, a noose.
>>35022238[For the record, Tactician/Precision won.]

>>35022238>Poison, adding poisons and the ability to develop them and add them to your senbon increase your lethality greatly.
>>35022238I know our finale>Impale enemy with a senbon>Send them through each join to hold him in place, suspended in midair>Wires come in from every which way, looping around joints and senbon>Wires all suddenly straighten out, leaving body in hundreds of pieces.The Chain weapon. We can use it as a conduit of sorts for our Jiton.
>>35022238>>Chain Weapons, you can use a chain as either a bludgeon, a tripwire, or if you're feeling vicious, a noose.Everyone likes those so let's go with that.
on to p of chain weapons and senbon, we need like 500 feet of cheese wire on a spool
>>35022238>Chain WeaponAs much as I'd like the poison, chain weapons will help our tactician role. Also its better to accidentally trip an ally with a chain than poison him.That nickname.. We already have a badass reputation, thats pretty awesome.
>>35022367YESAlso, maybe some metal cuffs/ankle cuffs, help with kicking n shit?
>>35022238>>Chain Weapons, you can use a chain as either a bludgeon, a tripwire, or if you're feeling vicious, a noose.
>>35022369I think we could use nonlethal poisons if we wanted, anoncaptcha: painfulness italmb
>>35022328Sounds metal as fuck.
>>35022369>We already have a badass reputationnot necessarily.About half of the kids just out of the academy in the anime have a nickname already.
>>35022293>>35022287>>35022261You spend a few weeks training in a one on one setting with your Sensei before the Chunin Exams. The dance of the steel rings is made all the easier with your Jiton abilities, and he notes with surprise that you have reached a level of ability with the Chain that some shinobi spend a year to reach in a month.During your exams you faced a total of seven foes. Though you lost your final match, it wasn't a problem, as both finalists became elevated to Chunin.How did you handle your opponents in the exams...>Viciously, you are a cruel girl and sought to take lives whenever you could, especially from foreigners. You are mean and sadistic.>Effectively, you fought to their limit and put them down as quickly and easily as you could. You are calm and practical. >Reactively, you would rather they walk into your trap and undo themselves than hurt them. You dislike needless violence.>Excitedly, you live for the thrill of fighting, but not particularly for the violence that fighting eventually leads to. You are energetic and spirited.
>>35022369Eh, I guess at least both poison and chain are better for us than puppetry.They both fit our nickname after all.
>>35022429>>Effectively, you fought to their limit and put them down as quickly and easily as you could. You are calm and practical. >>Reactively, you would rather they walk into your trap and undo themselves than hurt them. You dislike needless violence.These can be combine, aye?
>>35022429>EffectivelySomewhat>ExcitedlyDepending on who it was (probably bro, seriously, who else could beat that level of battlefield control and target-specific lethality)
>>35022429>Viciously, you are a cruel girl and sought to take lives whenever you could, especially from foreigners. You are mean and sadistic.
>>35022429Do we have a chakra-powered chain watch? Please tell me we have a chakra-powered chain watch.

>>35022429>Excitedly, you live for the thrill of fighting, but not particularly for the violence that fighting eventually leads to. You are energetic and spirited.Seems like we always plays dead serious characters. Let's mix it up

>>35022429>Reactivelyor/and>Effectivelywe're already too far into edgelord territory with chains and needles and shit let's not go all the wayalso I like being trapmaster more
>>35022525What's edgelord about it? It's perfectly practical and fits in marvelously with our skillset.
>>35022429>Effectively. >Reactively if we can as well>>35022518I don't think we have much of an opportunity to fight for the thrill of battle as a tactical rogue
>>35022479>>35022525>We Shikamaru nao
>>35022554I'm totally aware the it works for our skillset, but I'm talking about appearances. Imagine our character carrying all that shit.Which is why I want our personality to be as far from >Viciously, you are a cruel girl and sought to take lives whenever you could, especially from foreigners. You are mean and sadistic.as possible.
>>35022609>Shikimaru>Just instead of shadows we have fukhuge chained spikes covered in poison>And senbon + Pressure points to paralyse them
>>35022491>>35022479>>35022518>>35022482Foremost, you observed the situation and struck from positions of advantage only. To many outside observers they would see as a very cold person, but your Sensei, team, and brother knew the truth as you knew it. Though you weren't fond of getting too bloody, you adored the fun of meeting metal against metal, bone against bone, and a part of you almost yearned for someone to trump your traps and engage you in hand to hand.Your wish was granted in the finals. A white-eyed man from the Hidden Leaf evaded your traps, seeing through them as if they were as obvious as day, and when you attacked his chakra forced away your weapons and eventually he closed on you.The melee exchange was exciting for you, his blows were delivered with fingertips and palms, and when he tapped you, in the slightest, you felt the pain deep inside of your body. This pushed you further into your speed and the sound of blows raining around you filled your ears as they missed by fractions of an inch. You finally saw an opportunity for your chain and bound one of his arms. As you threw your senbon at the now restrained target he did something surprising and jumped towards you, pushing the senbon aside with a quick rotation, binding his entire leg in your chain, but as you tried to trip him his palm collided with your chest and you saw white.How do you feel about your loss..>Bitter>Encouraged>Fascinated>Depressed
>>35022651>Encouraged"About damn time. Shit was getting too easy."
>>35022651See?Now that's the huge difference between blood line abilities, Byakugan fucking shits on ours like no man's business, and Byakugan a shit
>>35022651>EncouragedWe finally met someone who was able to beat us, I think we'd be eager to improve.
>>35022651>>Fascinated>BitterWe better work on getting around that kind of shit
>>35022689Eh, Byakugan is Sharingan lite, and Sharingan is the mary sue of bloodline abilities.
>>35022708Byakugan is seriously still a shit, it's one of the worst blood lines in the damn series, even Sharigan pre-RINNESUSANOOAMATERASU bullshit completely shat all over it
>>35022708And Sharingan lite was shown to be completely terrible faced with any sort of meaningful opponent, hell, in all honesty the match up would have gone in our favour if we actually had control too.
>>35022771>>35022736That's because they kept using that stupid pressure-point fighting style. When I was watching that episode where it was showcased, I just facepalmed and screamed "JUST HIT THAT FUCKER IN THE FACE ALREADY!" over and over again.
>>35022805That's the only thing good about it, but it still doesn't do fucking much at all, aside from blocking chakra paths, it's less effective than punching people in the face and doesn't give any super ultra uber powers either, it's essentially GM fiat it ever does anything
>>35022736You know what's really the kicker for Byakugan? All the inheritors use it to hit critical points on the opponents body....which is something ANYONE could do with sufficient training.I mean, for fuck's sake, the greatest manga/anime of all time was built on that very premise.
>>35022856See, if Gentle Fist was more like Hokuto Shinken, then it would actually be good. Kenshiro doesn't need to hit pressure points all over your body to kill you, he does that for dramatic effect. He can always just cave your skull in. But the Hyuuga need to hit you 64 times in rapid succession to perform their killer attack. Not worth it.
>>35022856>>35022852>>35022736>>35022805Verily, power point pressing is much more impressive when it's goretastic instakills.
>>35022856The funnier part is, it's exactly what we do too, but we do it to greater effect.What I envisaged for our senbon was striking their pressure points, and then using a magnetic field to dive it deeper into the enemy body, not only killing their pressure point but doing internal damage as well.Instead our bloodline ability is suddenly inferior, and basically means nothing aside from extra character fluff.
>>35022690>>35022682>>35022688>>35022676You awoke with a drive to better yourself if you would meet him again in the future, and curious about the abilities of the white-eyed boy from Konoha. You realized that things had been too easy for you recently and that you needed this.A few years later and you stand in the Assignment Officer's room, kneeling alongside another Chunin. "Hikari, we have received a call for assistance from a minor nobleman in our country whose castle is besieged by a peasant uprising. You will be deployed with Ran Suzume to the castle, where you are tasked with bringing the revolt to a stop. This is a C-Rank Mission, despite the fact that these are peasants, we expect shinobi interference either from rogues or from an external threat. You will depart this evening and arrive under nightfall."You accept the mission and as you gather your gear you review your file for a final time, seeing that your memories are in order.[ http://pastebin.com/TR6aGHzu ]Does that look right to you?
>>35022897Plus I'm not sure Gentle Fist will do much good against a guy who's power points are buried beneath a thick layer of rubbery fat.
>>35022965Sure. Let's go be ninja. Actual ones, even. This is so weird, I don't know what to think about it.
>>35022965It's just a bunch of numbers, I have no idea what they actually do.
>>35022965pretty sure we can recall our own memories. and those do look like ours
>>35022965Let get started
>>35023026This, I have no fucking clue what's going on.
>>35023042>>35023026>>35023012[Outstanding. Now, we're not gonna start today cause I've got to head out very soon. However, we can talk about the exact details of the schedule.I am going to run the Quest on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Saturday. However, this week is special, so I will be running tomorrow in the afternoon until the night for our intro session as well as Tuesday, Wednesday, and Saturday.][The last bit of time we have today will cover any questions to help establish backstory, our character, and our relationships as well as the state of the world.]
>>35022922We only lost because PLOT. We got a rival who's better than us as someone to strive to beat; now we're encouraged to get better so we can kick his ass later.Always happens. Not necessarily a bad thing.
>>35023088Why did we lose to Neji/Neji-alike?If anything we seem to be a direct counter rather than being directly countered
>>35023088How strong are we exactly? The sheet just has a bunch of numbers and we just got the floor wiped with us by "Gets wrecked by everyone" the character
>>35023088So yeah how is the state of the world at large and what is our take on it all, heck what is our favorite food for that matter.
>>35023117See >>35023092One thing about the Gentle Fist/Byakugan as a whole is that it does prevent any sort of chakra from invading the opponent's system and the rotation (Kaiten) counters projectiles. The other useful ability they possess is the ability to see chakra, which can be used to determine the state of a trap. However, this is not to say that he is a hard counter, more that we were inexperienced with fighting Hyuga's.>>35023153It's one of the saddest things, I agree, that Hyugas are put down in the "not Sharingan so GTFO" class of KG's, but to answer your question more directly we are very capable of doing exactly what we want to. In combat our "rich get richer" style where we get an advantage and bury an opponent makes us a perfect assassin. 99% of shinobi can't get rid of the Magentic mark we can put on them, and will spend the whole fight either deflecting projectiles with their own, running, or getting skewered. The only people that will give us a hard time are ninjas who have heavy armor, a way to ignore small sums of damage through some means, or some manner of regenerative ability. Senbon are ultimately not extremely damaging, but being hit by several dozen is damning for anyone.>>35023202Answering this one at length in the next post. Also, favorite food is zaru soba, cold noodles.
>>35023088Are Jinchuuriki still present but as normal characters? Also, how did our parents die? Was it anything that would lead us on some PATH OF REVENGE against our older brother who's actually a good guy?
>>35023241How widely known is our reputation as The Scorpion?
>>35023202The world at large is coming off the back of the First Shinobi World War, and the Chunin Exam you took part in was the first effort to restore Village cohesion and a sense of brotherhood amongst shinobi. Our Village in particular bears grudges against Konoha but no village has our ire more than the Hidden Stone Village, since they share our largest border and compete with us most regularly. We are a bit bitter towards the Hidden Stone for their role in killing our parents.>>35023254Speaking of our parents, they were killed in a sneak attack by the Demolitions Corps from the Hidden Stone. Their Demo Corps is like the Seven Swordsmen from Mist, the Sealing Squad from our Village, the Twelve Guardians from Leaf, and the Kinkaku Force from Cloud.Our father was a medic, a meek and encouraging man, who preferred to read and study rather than fight. Our mother was an opinionated woman who fought with an oversized weapon that she accelerated with her Jinton powers. Our older brother was in the Academy at the time, and at the current point in the story is a Special Jonin in charge of teaching at the Academy for his firm grasp of the basics. As far as the Jinchuuriki, I want to avoid too many specifics about characters who are around. >>35023313We aren't Bingo Book material, so it's more of a name carried by Genin who we fought against in the Exams. Maybe 1/100 Ninja has heard of it.
>>35023241>One thing about the Gentle Fist/Byakugan as a whole is that it does prevent any sort of chakra from invading the opponent's system and the rotation (Kaiten) counters projectiles. See though, the thing about that.Is that the magnetic field is a counter to the rotation, as the weapons would not stop and be flung away, such as they would with Tenten and such.Instead they would circle around him, but retain their speed, maybe even increase it, and then circle back into his body.> The other useful ability they possess is the ability to see chakra, which can be used to determine the state of a trap. As such, we should have determined utilizing our chains instead of projectiles would be the way to victory, as utilizing our chains would have meant we were capable of setting a trap that isn't see-able through simple chakra.For example, making it so the chains would circle and ensnare their lower body, so he jumps to evade.However, at that point he cannot move anywhere but down, so we have the chain follow him into the air, and ensnare his body. At such a point we can simply wrap him in chains, and have him forfeit, as without free arms the Gentle Fist is essentially useless.>Senbon are ultimately not extremely damaging, I'd disagree with you there, especially in the way >>35022922 described it, it's essentially a long and sharp object penetrating through your flesh, then lodging itself into the muscle. Impossible to get out without medical tools and preparation, and essentially unavoidable.Now you place that in key points in the body, tendons, arteries, etc etc, and you've essentially got easy OHKO's on your hands.
>>35023367Our magnetneedle tags work for sensing their position too, not just as homing targets, right?Do we know how our mother fought? If so, we should work on getting some of that involved into our style, wearing braces and stuff to accelerate for kicks and punches, then eventually we could get so used to it that we can enhance our run to get super sprint from them. Are our magnet powers the magneto kind, that is metal telekinesis with some real magnetism mixed in?
>>35023367Can we have our chains be bladed? Like, have each of the links have small blades on it?
>>35023458The exact nature of Jiton has been pretty all over the place in terms of what it can do. The few people we've seen use it to basically be Gaara but with gold and iron, or to make someone a homing beacon for metal. So, as far as sensing, that'd be one of our UA's, or Unique Abilities, the last part of the character sheet that we'll develop on the fly.As for how mother fought, other than her massive club that she would cart around with the help of her powers, she'd use it to heft it up in the air and then let gravity and her chakra accelerate it down, and then release that chakra. Her control over chakra was insanely high. As was your Father's, and that's where she learned it from, in fact. We could definitely go that direction, if we wanted to.>>35023496Yeah, razor chain is a pretty standard piece of equipment. We'll arm ourselves for the mission at the start of tomorrow's quest.>>35023434The way that it was presented in the manga was that to establish the field you need to be hit by something carrying it once. If you're never hit directly, you don't carry the field. Rotation uses chakra to push it away and doesn't confer that to the user. Admittedly, using senbon in the way you describe would be very damaging.
>>35023565Could you explain "the field" a little more?Can we only put our Jiton out on an enemy we've hit? Is that it's limit?
>>35022922>The funnier part is, it's exactly what we do too, but we do it to greater effect.I'll agree with that once I see a guy explode after you hit him just once.
>>35023620I think that's the limit of our homing strike, but we can use it as course-altering and stuff at range if we've infused an object with our chakra (Is that how it works, we can't just TK regular metal, only stuff we touched?)
>>35023639He means the gentle fist style.
>>35023649I get that, but if we just needed to hit them, couldn't we essentially create a mini-railgun with a Senbon, even with the rotation he wouldn't be fast enough to counter it.
>>35023620So, the way that the Jiton appears to work, and the way we're rolling with it now, is that the quality of "Magnetic" is part of our natural chakra. If we charge a weapon with chakra, not enough to make it like Sasuke's sword where the element is flowing up and down it, since that requires constant streaming, but instead leave trace amounts of it. When a charged projectile comes in contact with an opponent in any way, be it through a metal weapon or direct contact, they become affected by the same Magnetism. Now, they are considered to be heavily magnetized and pull metal towards them. So think of it as an infection by contact.>>35023649That's correct. We can influence our stuff by default, represented by higher accuracy with those weapons, but things that we've touched are under our sway to a point.
>>35023620chakra strings i think if the target is hit once then all will fallow the trail, if he's never hit the spikes don't have a specific target. at least thats what i think
>>35023705So would >>35023701 be impossible then?I mean, the description earlier in the thread was VERY, very scarce, you should have extended it a bit.
>>35023661Oh. Sorry. Take this pic as an apology, may it serve you well should you run into an intolerable fatass elsewhere on the internet.
>>35023737Making a railgun of sorts is possible. But there are things like ammo restrictions and, frankly, a bit of rules control we have to exert over this. I understand that the description was a bit scarce, but we'll know the exact mechanical limitations of abilities come tomorrow. I'll have a full description of our Jutsu and what they can do, as well as the nature of our Jiton style up by the time we're ready to run.
>>35023766It's alright, and I most likely will.That being said, if we can do >>35023701, we most likely can perform that sort of shit.
>>35023779>But there are things like ammo restrictionsOh really? I think Tenten would certainly disagree with you on every single case there.And considering she, when she had the power to manifest absurdly shittons of everything, was on exactly the same level as us, I think that won't be a problem for us either.
>>35023779I personally don't see ammo being much of a problem, and if we can create a railgun, it shouldn't be hard to completely kill nearly anything with one strike in the right place.After all, it's essentially creating a bullet, and one of those striking bone would completely destroy a person. By the way, what other bloodlines could we have gained?And, what exactly is our relationship with our brother?
>>35023846Absolutely we can do that! It's a super cool idea that's undersold to hell in the manga. Scrolls, apparently, are hammer space for the most part, and we can just carry tons of them which holds all of our ammo. I would strongly encourage that and praise it as a cool thing for us to do.
>>35023894Naturally, not being Leaf, there is virtually no mention of anything else but our token KKG. Puppetry is the big skill in the village, but other KKG's we've seen from Sand include Scorch, which is Wind + Fire, which dessicates people as well as just shooting hyper-focused heat at them.Our relationship with our brother is a bit of a complicated mix of foster-father and brother. Since you've gotten older he's eased up on his parental role and instead takes a more advice-based position and helps us with questions or problems we have. It's a good relationship, just not particularly warm.
>>35023901So, we'll have a bucket load of senbon, bladed chains covered in explosive wrapping paper, and absurd amounts of throw-able shit for our magnets.>>35023950Did we have to start here? Sand always seemed like a shitty village to me anyway.
>>35023984Wellllll in regards to that, we did a campaign as Leaf and one as Mist, and the last one we attempted was received negatively for being from Leaf, since it seems people are tired of it. We're gonna make an identity for Sand and try to bring it forward as something enjoyable, like we did with Mist, though Mist give us a lot more to work with.
>>35024014Why don't you do one pre-villages, with all of the clans next time?
>>35023705I think you should make it so we can choose to make someone attract metal by default, or if he only attracts stuff we charge in a way that it gets attracted to him (selective targeting ftw)
>>35024038Did one like that. Went well, people went waifu-wars on it. Learned from it.>>35024039All these very specific things are what UA's are made for. They're all about options, and in this setting, we need them.
>>35024062Do we only get 2 UAs?
>>35024072Actually it should say we have 3. 2 for Genin, and then 1 for each Rank past (Chunin->Special Jonin->Jonin-> High Jonin-> Kage)
>>35024062>Did one like that. Went well, people went waifu-wars on it. Learned from it.Go ahead and explain.
>>35024062Then how about one pre-clans or during the wars?
>>35024115It's all archived, and while it is unfortunately, at least to me, a good story, it got wrapped up in the worst parts of questing and got buried in that stuff instead of continuing. http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=narutoFive Nations Quest Gaiden is the series.>>35024136I wouldn't mind the second, but from the way that ninjas are presented Clans of Ninja are the earliest we know about shinobi history. During the founding wars would be cool.
>>35024062Err, I don't know, I just feel the magnetic release is one of the most disappointing bloodline abilities, but I suppose the way we're using it, kind of makes it more interesting.Oh, and, next thread, could we vote on our chakra affinity, rather than having it random?
>>35024188Nah, random chakra is good, less powergaming and more fungaming
>>35024188Actually it's kinda decided by Bloodline, at least two are. We have Lightning + Wind, which make Magnet.
>>35024204I personally disagree, but I'm not going to argue.
>>35024223Hmm, I guess Fire+Earth would make metal, then?
>>35024223Well, I suppose that's individual to your universe then, since it isn't quite so in the actual one.By the way, what happened to the tailed beasts then?
>>35024285Fire + Earth makes Lava, actually.>>35024293True, Magnet is not outwardly stated as being made of Lightning + Wind. But other Advanced Elements are made of composites, so I just made a logical step to saying WInd + Lightning.As far as the tailed beasts we're just gonna pretend that never happened. It's worked in the past and it should work now.Anyway! I think I'm gonna wrap it up, I've gotta get going soon. Looking to start tomorrow around 1-2 PM EST and we can get rolling. Thanks for taking part and I hope we have a good run.
>>35024347Just say they're on the moon or something, fighting eternally, the entire kaguya affair doesn't work without the tailed beasts really
I just realized.With a few Lightning Style techniques, and a block of superdense metal we've been compressing together outta scraps since youth, we coulda been thor
>>35024754Oh god, that plus hammer space scrolls would be fucking OP
>>35022736I'll never understand why people think Byakugan is crap.The hyuuga weren't really using it to it's full potential because they had a specific fighting style. But the bloodline is capable of much more.Just a few good points about this doujutsu- Upon activation instantly gives ~360 degree sight in a range of 50 meters and can be extended with training (in canon the furthest we saw was 10 kilometers, but that wasn't even a jounin, or anyone particularly old) -Can see through blocking terrain, smokescreens etc, can tell when genjutsu are being used and identify chakra seals and other chakra constructs (which except in special high power cases are invisible)-Can discern transformations from real people-Is one of the original doujutsuWith just the basic abilities a ninja could be incredible, no need to mimic the Hyuuga style at all. The potential is mind boggling.>>35022897IIRC, the hyuuga use that style because it is extremely efficient chakrawise and is flexible enough to simply KO an opponent or kill them without them having to change much.If they simply want to murderlize they have several other usable techniques For example Lions fist, which forms chakra constructs around their hands and tears out throats and other body partsBonus of being invisible to people who can't see chakra
>>35024847Eh, Byakugan isn't as good in an actual fight, but for EVERYTHING ELSE THAT A NINJA COULD EVER HAVE TO DEAL WITH it's pretty much invincibility.
>>35024881It is good in combat, but only in certain ways. In fact, I think Rock Lee or Gai would have been even more of an absolute monster if he had the Byakugan
>>35025124>I think Rock Lee or Gai would have been even more of an absolute monster if he had anything elseFTFY
>>35025213Obviously, but the Byakugan would have worked exceptionally well for them, without being haxxorz-ultimate-deathgod-sharingan levels of bullshit
And lets not forget that Byakugan users should have an easier time acquiring sage mode due to their ability to see the chakra they're gathering and not futzing about with feelings and guesses.
>>35025515Byakugan users can see chakra in all it's forms, Incuding nature and inside bodies.In order to activate sage mode you have to balance not only physical and spiritual chakra (which is done for normal jutsu) but nature chakra as well.If you mess up the nature chakra balance it either doesn't work or you die, depending on if you underbalanced or overbalanced. A Byakugan user, unless they can't see their own systems (in which case they'd just need a family member to help out) would be able to balance this effectively due to being able to actually see the amounts instead of just having to feel what the balance is like normal, non chakra sight ninja.
>>35023705So, it's similar to the old one?
>>35021273Please not another one. God-Emperor protect us.
>>35026411What's so wrong with it?
>>35023984I'm a bit late to the train, but hey - why not explosive tags on senbon?Explosive senbon, dude.
>>35026467Because.....wait......that's....that's an absurdly great idea.
>>35026467Size and weightSenbon aren't heavy enough to throw well with tags wrapped on.We can make up for some of that with bloodline but we have a max range on that that seems to be less than our throwing range.
>>35026681But think of it this way, imagine if we could wrap an ultra-thin explosive tag onto a senbon, then insert it into someone, then BOOM.
>>35026735or maybe just figure out how to inscribe senbon with the explosive rune, without needing the tag? Combine that with a scroll that mass-produces items
>>35026504Welp, we have another trap ready.What I'm thinking of, personally, is a 2D web with gaps large enough for a person to jump through easily. When they try and do so to get to us, that gap suddenly closes, trapping one of their limbs or, if we're in a poor mood, shearing the limb right off.
>>35026735I like this idea.So when is first quest day?
>>35030329Tomorrow. 1-2 PM EST.
