    While he is busy attacking and blocking Yuki he gets the feeling, too late, that you are attack. Your hand grips his shoulder and he yells out in pain as he feels the water ripped from his system. He hits his knees and is gasping from exhaustion and pain.

    And now OP has to away to the store.

    While I am gone, however, be sure everyone to think of something on this side project.

    Pick 3 people. Then using what you know about their abilities and your own, create a Combination Attack that you can both use for a sum of Chakra and Determination against super-powerful foes, as a way of showing both your co-ordination and united power.

    EX: Itachi and Kisame- Water Clone Massacre;

    Itachi creates a water clone out of Kisame's water which runs forward and captures the target in a Genjutsu. Kisame then slashes through the water clone, hitting the target and ripping their chakra away before smashing them to their knees. He catches the water from the former clone and uses it at as a water shark and delivers that also onto the target, finishing them off.

    Combo attack "Bloody Water Saw of the Hidden Mist"/ "Kali"/ or "Tasmanian Devil no Jutsu"

    Participants: Simaru Yamada and the Hozuki brothers.

    Effect: Shimaru uses the Hozuki bros to create a pair of water clones of himself and his sword. He then uses avatar of the sea on the transformed brothers. Using his chakra control and their chakra pools the trio makes three different buzz-saws,one is the real sword which is either fire or steam while the other two are cloned swords that use water. The three in conjunction create a whirling typhoon of death, using the hozuki's flexibility and special properties to fend off physical attacks and Shimaru's speed to dodge any other attacks allowing the three to switch their entire focus on offense, defense and counter ninjutsu.

    Costs: Chakra (3: 2 water clones, 6: 2 avatars, ?: not sure how much water/fire/steam saws cost for sword)

    Determination 3-5 range?

    I don't see this actually happening in game but I thought it'd be fun to try it out.

    Us and Yuki- Steam Explosion

    We use her ability to hollow out her bones to shoot pressuried steam into her, which she channels into either her fist or the edge of her sword, forcing a constriction upon contact and detonating it with an explosive force, shattering poisoned bone-shards everywhere. As well as, y'know. Damage from the explosion- perhaps further augmented by her wind-natured chakra.

    Saito uncoils a long, super-thin wire which loops around Tetsuo's blade.

    Not really. I like the dolphin idea as well if only because I imagine their grand summon would be a massive orca named boss Shamu. But the squid idea from before is also awesome, because then the grand summon is "Relase the Kraken!"

    But my favorite idea is crustaceans, crabs/ lobster etc. Mainly because then we can have a training sequence with them to learn pistol shrimp taijutsu.

    Flash Fire - Yuki initiates with a Gust of Blades, and Shimaru can shunshin in to support her with a katon buzzsaw (each doing 1.5x? damage for complementary nature combo) ending on the opposite side of the opponent, allowing Yuki to finish with a flanking bonus strike.

    Thirsting Sea - Shimaru and Mangetsu perform Avatar of the Sea and grapple an opponent with some bonus, Mangetsu then makes himself into a water prison like pressure trap allowing Shimaru to easily hold them and suck the water from them (which could go to replenish Mangetsu).

    Quick Cement - Saito uses dojutsu to activate a mass of earth so Mangetsu may move with it fluidly. Mangetsu then launches himself as a Water/Earth dragon at the foe (2.5x d?), reconstituting on the other side of them, having left them encased in an instantly dehydrated earthen tomb. (I suppose Saito could then also detonate it on them, though that may make it prohibitively expensive)

    Team Tactics Trap - Shimaru and Waraji flank an opponent and simultaneously strike, the opponent suffering an additional penalty to defend against them. As long the opponent remains flanked they suffer a dice penalty to any action they try to take (including shinobi movement to try an escape).

    Mummers' Murder - Gendo and Tetsuo do something awesome together. Maybe Tetsuo gets to initiate hidden mist and phantoms at the same time, where the phantoms look like Gendo, who approaches with a more effective Hideous Laughter before making his attack.

    I have no idea about what kind of costs and exact dice effects would be balanced though.

    Shimaru + Aya:
    All dried up

    Opens up with a vicious taijutsu combo focused around making as many cuts and wounds on the target as possible, finishing with Shimaru injecting the chakra-leak poison. The dazed enemy is placed in a water prison/double grapple wherein Shimaru and Aya turn on maximum chakra/water harvesting, draining the target until it is a shriveled corpse. Maybe have an added effect of Shimaru and Aya getting doubled gains from having critical successes equal to the amount of the highest rank shinobi in the manuver as well as rolling good enough to qualify for at least two extra effect dice?

    Tag Team Technique with Waraji: Keep Away. We basically smack a guy between the two of us using the flat of our blades. Takes them out of the fight and keeps them alive for after the battle.

    Octupus or giant squid would also be good against sharks, too.

    Crabs would give us more options since they could work on land longer than a marine-only summon like dolphins, squids, and octopi. Unless we get the water blast that Kisame has and can create small lakes in an instant, of course.

    Agreed with these, as well as updating info on our ANBU's files on Akatsuki.

    Also bring up the fact that if there's over 200 shinobi, they must have come from somewhere; have our Intelligence analysts see if the number of shinobi that went rogue from known Hidden Villages could account for such a large number.

    Also, Toothed Whales is still an option, plus we should keep in mind the fact that it seems at least possible to summon only parts of the animal we have a contract with, like summoning a toads stomaches or a crocodiles skin for instance.

    You head to Aya and with her help you file all your new information and she shows you the books on summoning. The Mist has a very limited history of summoning, with the exceptions of the Hoshigaki Clan and their sharks. There is a single mist shinobi who is knowledgeable in the pacts available, but he has long since left the village with a Seal of Silence to all but Mist shinobi, traveling the world as a mute.

    High Pain Tolerance allows to continue fighting injured withoup standard penalties, suffer effects of injury after the fight.
    Inhuman Pain Tolerance allows to continue fighting wounded without standard penalties (additional penalties like severed limbs, and broken bones still apply), suffer wound effects after the fight.

    According to what data you have Orochimaru has been seen with Sasori of the Hidden Sand village. However, unbelievably, they have been reputed to be doing good deeds across the nation together, defeating bandits, killing tyrants, averting natural disasters with their ninjutsu. People of the lands they have traveled through are extremely unfriendly towards those who seem to wish ill towards the Serpent on Strings.

    Kimimaro hasn't been seen or heard from. It's presumed he's in one of Orochimaru's lairs.

    Sempai was last seen in the Land of Fire attacking with an army of Akatsuki Agents under his command, burning land.

    She happily announces that Gen and she are to be married in the spring, with the influx of the seasons and the strongest tides.

    I'd like to say that it takes usually a special something in someone to get a contract holder to even allow them to use it. Otherwise, why didn't Jiraiya just give the whole village the ability to summon toads? Hate to rain on your parade on this one, but it seems unlikely to allow all Seven to just have a summon.

    I was under the impression that we'd help the swordsmen that don't have them gain their own individual summoning contracts. Granted it'd be a bitch to find a summon that fits each member and accompany them to do whatever they need to do to GET the contract, all while fighting off Akatsuki and god knows what else. But it would give our team an UNDENIABLE ADVANTAGE against any one looking to pick a fight with us.

Your discussion turns towards work again, as always, and this time he mentions wanting to help you with something before Aya keeps him busy.

    You and he both go out to the field where he observes the seal that he put on your hand so long ago it seems. With a few adjustments he talks to you about what you could do with the seal. "Well, i see the idea of mixing its teleportation with your swing has already come to mind for you." he says with a chuckle, "Hmm...." He muses and taps the blade with his fingers, "You seem to have locked down the saw blade, well, specifically my wind tag did.

    A little late, I know, but I thought of a technique for one of the pairs.

    Saito and Shimaru. Saito creates multiple earth clones with explosive tags (is it possible to just blow them up with charkra?) that shushin(?) towards a target to surround them, each grabbing the opponent from a different angle to immobilize them. Meanwhile Shimaru creates multiple water clones in a circle around the opponent and earth clones. Half of Shimaru's water clones throw their swords at the opponent (using that boomerang jutsu, I've forgotten what it's called) whilst the other half use katon. At the very last moment Saito explodes his clones causing insane amounts of damage whilst the opponent is being cut into multiple pieces, ripped apart and burnt alive.

    Create 5 clones for 6 Chakra (1 left), and we all simultaneously attack Gen, one after the after.
    Punch right, punch left, punch down, double-punch into the air, and then we knock him down with an axe kick. An Uzumaki Combo.

    So you charge as 1/2 your turn and then create a clone who gets up close and attacks him.

    Your clone gets close and lands a blow against his stomach as he winces in pain before seeing you in midflight. "This is how you lost the Chunins!" He said with a smile as two of his limbs come forward and this time shoot a huge steel-gauge net at you.

    The clone climbs up his limbs and secures his arms around the man's neck and pulls back hard, Gen's eyes rolling back as he tries to maneuver a few limbs to spear the clone, not quite sure of himself at this range.

    You fly in with your blade screaming through the air and just at the last second smash it into his chest with the flat as he collapses backwards onto your clone and coughs, his back wet and his metal limbs receding into his back as he stands up with a grin, offers his hand, "I guess that's why you're a hero, and I'm getting hitched."

    Zettibara is less than an hour away, and the Mizukage would more than likely be happy to grant you time off work.

    Well fuck, I may have just suggested exposing our Mizukage to Pain's hypnotism...

    The question is, what does Shimaru really think about Akatsuki's plan. Does a united shinobi force represent a stronger mist or a weaker one?

    Another interesting question, when it comes down to it, would we betray our Mizukage if it was the significantly better option for the village in general? We accepted Mei as our new Lord, but she killed her predecessor (who could be considered one of the worst Kage ever), so that could be precedent. Or it could be said that our loyalty was never called into question. She was the new Kage when we got back; only if we had been there during the fight or her establishing legitimacy would we have been making a choice to accept or resist; otherwise the village had made its decision without us, and we were obliged to accept it.

    Our loyalty to the village and the people within it supercedes our loyalty to the Kage, I think, but in being professional, we listen to our superiors in most things.

    Kisame's already revealed that Akatsuki's goal is to not make the nations reliant on the villages though, which would eventually involve the Mist village no longer existing in a fashion close to its current one. Whether that means it will cease to exist at all or whether it will just be absorbed into the leader's organisation is unclear...but either way I doubt it will be good. We already know he's a slippery chaplain-y kind of fellow. Not particularly trustworthy.

    Right next door meaning across the misty bay and half the land of fire. Although I think it only took 3 days walking with Suigetsu, maybe that was something else though.

    No, it was 3 days with Suigetsu because we used the Merchant Road highway.

    Take the non-safe route. We need as much time to convince the Hokage of this as we can get.

    You and Gendo put some haste to your feet and arrive just short of 48 hours of travel. Once there, you show the papers the Mizukage gave you, the reaction of the ANBU showing that obviously it was of great importance as they lead you right to the Hokage office after stripping you and Gendo of your items, leaving just your clothes on and your arms bound.

    Once with Minato, who is finishing some paperwork, he frees your hands and tells you to take a seat. With a small smile he asks the nature of your business. As you fill him in his eyes seem to drop more and more, his sadness seeming to come up as he finally says,

    "Kumo has been hiring these Akatsuki in bulk. Our intelligence tells us that about 80% of the contracts Akatsuki is bringing in come from Kumo, it's costing them a fortune, but they're waging a proxy war against us, and their hands are very very clean. It's difficult to track the money and we have no recourse outside of starting a war we cannot afford to fight." he says and runs his fingers through his blond hair before nodding, "I will need time to think on this. The Bloody Mist is a place where I have no friends, and a place that is full of danger. This may be a trap we're walking into, or even worse, a ploy to get me to leave my home. I will need to make arrangements before anything is for certain. Please, give me two days."

    "I understand."
    2 days puts us in just under the deadline, with a return trip.
    I'm wondering if there's anything we can offer or say that will alleviate some of his suspicions.

    Perhaps we should tell him of our suspicions too? Mutual not-liking-this is a good place to start on trust.

    Maybe this should acutally be a new thread?
