Guys, Im dissapointed in you. There are so many opportunies for gathering first rate intelligence for our village and none are exploited, except Guy powel level check.
    And being polite =/= being friendly, remember how we insulted A? Thats how it works.
    Being honest =/= being secret spouting fool. We are shinobi first, we are not telling everything to potential enemies.
    Forging alliances is a Mizukage thing, not our buiseness. Achievieng ultimate peace wont leave a place for shinobi in Five Nations. Thats a nightmare for individual, whose value is a individual strenght.

    Being polite means not being an ass to people.
    Also, gaining intel is easiest done if people believe we're their friend.
    And finally, the original character idea was a shinobi who believes in professionalism while on the job. You are nowhere close to being a professional.
    Also, Shimaru still enjoys cutting people in half, but he does it when he's on the job, not just where ever and whenever the fancy strikes him.
    And we still have a professional level of required paranoia, just not enough that cripples us in any capacity outside of our mission.

    You arrive at the office and are quickly searched but are let in. Sitting behind the desk is the legendary Fourth Hokage, his son in his arms as a tall white-haired man stands beside him, "Hello there little Naruto." Jiraiya says with a laugh before turning, "Oy, Minato." The Fourth stands up and walks over to you, "It's a pleasure to meet you." he says with his kindest smile, "It's not often we get visitors from the Mist. I'm honored to meet you.

    What kind of intel do you think we are missing out on? I mean, I can imagine examining that field around the village being useful, but anbu would be on us in a heartbeat. We are only going to be able to see what they let us see. (I am sincere in asking what other intel you think we might be able to gather though, I was thrilled when someone mentioned Anko)

    International peace was always a hypothetical progression, and it stemmed from me believing Shimaru would never quit the shinobi's life while his liege still had need of him. I do see lifetime-warrior as the default for Shimaru, unless something like talking to Tsunade or Kisame (about whatever the hell Akatsuki are up to) made something click for him.

    As for being a professional, trolling the Head Family of the Cloud was only professional because it was in the course of our mission; we needed the Third to step back into the ring, otherwise that shit is the height of unprofessional.

    The game wound up being this. All of you stood outside with a small sake cup and ten ryo coins. "Alright, we're going to put the kid to the test." he said, pointing at Suigetsu, "If this kid can catch all ten coins before they hit the ground, we win. Fair?"

    With a surprising show of deftness Suigetsu flicks the coins up and catches all of them with remarkable ease. When he's done Jiraiya laughs, "Wow! I didn't think you could do it, nicely done." he said and winks at Tsunade, "So, how about it?" Tsunade clicks her teeth, "Not a good night. Alright, come with me." she said and leads you all back to her apartment.

    Once you're inside she opens the notes and scans them with lightning speed. "Alright, fine. So it looks like you have a coronary problem which is caused by a leakage in your system flooding your lungs with blood." She said and put her hands together, a white glow over them as she holds them over Mangetsu's chest and breathes in and out slowly, "Alright....I can see where the problem is." She said and placed a hand on his chest to keep the spot before she called Suitgetsu over and scanned his chest, "And now I see the difference. Ok...." She read over the notes, "Your water-body makes it very difficult to operate on you." She said and produces a scalpel, carving right down his chest and pulling back only a wet scalpel. "In fact, the only way TO operate on you seems to be with a chakra scalpel, and even that may not work." She said before creating one and cutting his chest, this time warranting a yelp in pain from Mangetsu as his muscles could be seen, "So this does work." She muses and puts him to sleep, orders everyone out of the room and begins work.

    An hour later she re-emerges, looking drained. "I've done my best for him. He'll be operating a little under his best all the time for the rest of his life."

    This needs to be how we react to the book. Possibly asking if 'Harem Ninjitsu' is an actual attack and how many people it would kill.

    Are we sure we want to tackle with a S-Class Mad Scientest Nin right now? Because if we do, we are telling Tsunade and Jiraiya that we're going to find him, force him to cure Mangetsu [and hopefully grab Kimimaro if we can figure that out] and that Ninja - not Tools, but I think it's Obvious that Leaf doesn't like people using the word Tools rather then Ninja - that betray their village are trash and we will kill him.

    Honestly? I'm pretty sure that we can't take him, probably not even with all Seven Swordsmen assembled.

    The questions will be how much fighting capability has Mangetsu retained, and can we get Suigetsu to understand that even though Orochimaru might have the knowledge to heal Mangetsu, his reputation means that he'll either not help, or implant some kind of backdoor to use against Mangetsu and us.

    Nah, we arent going for Orochimaru just yet. Busting a hideout? Okay. Going face to face? Fuck, no. We are going for Shark, not the Snake. And our Shark isnt a sneaky type, there will be some info on him pretty soon. Map would be useful for Intelligence though.
    And Mangetsu.. well now he has a whole life ahead of him to get stronger.
    metapoint: Orochimaru still has his arms, and all of his techinques. And he can plant his seal on us (thats his UA3, isnt it, OP?).
    Also Mangetsu UA pretty much stolen from grown up Suigetsu:

    Oh no, the seal's his jutsu, his UA3 makes it almost impossible for him to die, as is appropriate for Orochimaru.

    It's the completely opposite direction. Iwagakure is to the north-west of the continent and the Mist is the south-east.

    You spend the night in a hotel room and when you wake up Mangetsu is in the kitchen singing to himself and making breakfast. He seems none the worse for wear and when questioned he explains all that he feels is a slight discomfort when he breathes in and a weakness when drawing upon any large sum of chakra. However, he notes, he's still able to do all his techniques as he normally can and even can take stabs and kunai without an issue like normal.

    Orochimaru is a strange customer. Despite his reputation for mischief, murder, and outright evil, he's actually generally extremely good at keeping his word. Deceit is never something Orochimaru is well known for, and if what he's promised you has no negative repercussion on his end, he's more than likely willing to make a deal of it. He's very narrow-minded in his goals and isn't stupid evil and will just try to fuck you without a good reason.

    The first thing you notice is that Orochimaru and Kisame have been together twice in the past two months, and both in wildly different locations. Other than that their paths almost seem to be exactly opposite one another.

    With the files update Aya brings something to your attention, "Say, Shimaru, we've been getting a lot of intel about black-clad shinobi with red headbands attacking our non-national assets from the north. It looks like Cloud activity, but....these aren't Cloud nin." She says and shows you the picture of shinobi with all black on, even masks, but with red headbands to go along with it.

They were raiding an outlying village that produced ink for scroll work. "Jeez...what a mess." Tetsuo said as Saito looked around, "I'll investigate the buildings." He said and shimmered into his ethereal form and walked through the walls of the buildings slowly, investigating.

    The villagers, to their credit, actually managed to get a kill. One of the shinobi laid dead on the ground, stripped of all of his gear, but his clothing was left. The headband was more easy to see now. There was a small cloud stitched into the red cloth, a red cloud.

    Steam Cannon is an idea I had to mix a Katon (Fire) and Suiton (Water) into a Steam ninjutsu attack, like our Steam Buzzsaw and the current Mizukage's Vapor Release (which uses the heat of a Fire jutsu to evaporate acid from a Water jutsu to create an acid mist).

    I agree that Flicker Blade is good, but we might need a higher Speed Rank in order for it to work. Being faster would also give most people we fight against a -2 to their dice pools when attacking us or evading our attacks.

    As for the Flicker Blade style, you're right that it's a form of applied seals and fuujutsu. In that case, we might need to increase our Fuujutsu Knowledge and possibly Chakra Control to get it.

    First, awesome idea: What if our Avatar of the Sea can perform Jutsu all by itself while we focus on sword fighting? Avatar of the Sea signing Water Prison while we attack foes. Mhm, that brings up an idea. Can you sign contracts with things like 'The Sea' so we can get our Avatar to actually be a kaiju beast thing?

    Second, are there any other ideas we want to try for? I would like to try to individualize our 'Hidden Mist' technique - not with poison, we should bring that up with Yuki or whoever on the Seven is best at poison - but maybe 'Dropping or injuring a target automatically allows us to spend a point of Chakra(determination maybe?) to expand our Bloody Hidden Mist as if it was cast on the body.'

    Well, our Avatar of the Sea is a modified form of Water Bunshin and Water jutsu, and the idea of the water armor was that it could create a second set of hands, so I don't see why it couldn't also cast jutsu.

    Another idea is to turn our water clones into suicide bombers or have them continually fire tagged kunai at enemies like a sentry turret.

    Saito, with his earth movement, should be able to mine the battlefield mid-combat, which could give us a great edge.
