    Last one 404'd, it's here.


    We continue.

    After you and Momoji finish your conversation with one another you head back to the Clan's home and celebrate with Jako and his sister, as well as the rest of the Clan.

    Midway through the festivities, however, you feel a sharp pain in your head as a distant voice rings out. "I'm sorry for the intrusion, Shingen Hyuuga, but I am Ikoto Senjuu, and I have been ordered to contact you on an issue of importance. We will be very grateful towards you and your Clan if you return to the Senjuu Camp post-haste, there is something we wish your assistance with."

    Bloody hell. And we just got here. Momoji's gonna be mad if we skip out but this would probably be best for the Hyuuga if we went. I say tell the voice we'll be there as soon as we can.

    Well looks like we have some issues in Senju lands. It's something we'll have to deal with, it is our actual job after all. We'll just have to tell Momoji that something's come up with our official duties and we have to move post haste. We'll try and be back when we can, but it sounds urgent so we have to leave as soon as possible.

    She hears the news and takes it rather well, thanking you for coming. To his credit, her father accepts your words and thanks you for coming and meeting everyone. Honda seems ready to go home and Jako stands up, ready as ever, and Midori seems a little upset but shrugs, "Well, you need to go back to work I see." The woman said as she hugged her brother and said, "Don't worry little man, he's a good guy, he'll take care of you." She said with a smile.

    You hasten to the Senjuu Camp where a small group of men are waiting. Honda's father among them. They look extremely stressed and tired, the blond man speaks up, "I'm Ikoto, and I'm sorry to call you over, but we need your diplomatic touch. Relations between the Senjuu and Aburame Clan have taken a bit of a hitch due to a slight faux pas on the part of some of our Clansmen. Needless to say, the Aburame suffered a major loss at our hands, and we are really in the hole. We need you to use your position as an allied Clan to ply as much diplomatic favor with them as you can. If you are successful we will make sure the Patriarch will hear of it." He says and looks up at Honda and nods, the boy busy hugging his father and exchanging brief conversation.

    "I wasn't graced with all the details. But from what I gathered, some Senjuu young-bloods were assigned to a guard duty as a sign of good faith and allowed saboteurs to decimate a sizable colony of the Aburame Clan's signature bugs, one of the only three they possess." He informs with a sigh.

    "The Clan have a representative set up as a liaison to meet you when you arrive. You'll be dealing with aforementioned liaison for the duration of your stay. Tobirama himself sends his most sincere request that you achieve success." He explains simply before shaking your hand, "Good luck out there."

    A quick hop across to the Aburame Clan's grounds which have changed since the last three years you were here. Now they seem to be a tight cluster of small cabin-like houses with lots of cloth overhangs and very few winows.

    Outside of one of the smaller houses in front of the others is a young....person? It's difficult to tell with Aburame, especially from the back. As you get close, however, a swarm of the kikkaichu rise up from the person's sleeve and seem to be looking your direction. Honda shudders and Jako says, "I hate these guys. They give me the creeps." He admits and you see that the individual with the long braided ponytail is indeed a young woman with small black sunglasses on. She wears a white trenchcoat and the pauldrons of the time, a curled length of steel wire on her right hip. She walks towards you, the bugs floating behind her as she speaks in a soft voice, "You are the ambassador. I am Haruko Aburame. Names, please?"

    "The Senjuu Clan has caused us a great deal of loss. We are not willing at this time to forgive so easily. Years of good relations cannot hope to repair such a catastrophic loss." She says simply as she adjusts her glasses.

    You and your comrades take a walk, the two of them visibly pleased to no longer be close to that woman. Honda shivers, "She creeps me the hell out." He says and Jako nods, "Terrifying."

    The three of you head towards the Hives area. You see a massive presence of Aburame standing there, their bugs swarming around, investigating the area. You see the remains of what appears to be a massive hive which stood about ten feet in the air. However, it is charred and blasted, all vestiges of structure removed by whatever caused the explosion.

    The chamber which housed the nest had a single entry point and had a massive door, but the hinges are torn, wood splinters all over the floor.

    Introduce ourselves (and our companions) to the investigators, state our reasons for being here (be friendly, but short and sweet, the Aburame don't usually seem to do small talk from what I gather) and then ask the Aburame present what they think happened and whodunnit, while looking around with our enhanced vision.

    If the investigators are willing to speak to us, ask us if they want (rather than need) our assistance. No need to make people feel like we're stepping on their toes.

    Turn our byakugan on, to see if there are any traps left in the area. For example fire tag traps, or blinding traps. While we can't see normal traps like that, chakra infused tags will be easy to see.

    On the one hand, the quest moving so slow saddens me.

    On the other hand, a freak storm knocked out power and internet where I live for like three days, and I didn't miss much.

    You activate your Byakugan and scan the area. The wreckage is mundane, it seems like no chakra was used in the assault. There are no signs of a struggle and the damage to the hive itself appears to be chakra-based. The material that the hive is comprised of is singed with chakra-burns along the ridges, which you can notice, but you surmise their kikkaichu can as well, as they are crawling all over it.

    The Aburame are all standing there in relative silence as they are prone to do. When you introduce yourself a man speaks up, "I am Gen. We would actually welcome your special talents here." He says and directs you towards a corner of the room where a small black kunai is laying, seemingly discarded.

    "Our inspection revealed this in this very spot, and though our kikkaichu tell us there's no chakra, we feel differently." Sure enough as you look over it you can see that at its very heart a burning seed of chakra is lurking. Closer inspection reveals a seal, carved extremely minutely and well detailed, right into the inner loop near the handle. The seal reads "Inferno".
    >> Anonymous 12/13/11(Tue)23:35 No.17209031
    Fire based techniques are a specialty of the Uchiha correct?

    Of course that would be an obvious answer, so the perp would frame the Uchiha since they are an obvious enemy.

    This needs further investigating.

    Your chakra senses do not detect a trigger on that seal, however, the seal appears to be imbuing the kunai, rather than serving as a detonator.

    This is pretty much THE reason we've been investing in diplomacy related skills. So that when the inevitable happens we won't have to fight a guy who has, in no particular order: infinite Sharigan techniques, Fucking Rinnegan, the ability to actually turn someone into a mind-slave with the Tsukuyomi, the ability to call down meteors, and steal other people's summons and force them to do his bidding.

    If he's HALF the man he is in the main series cannon, we do not want to fight him.

    I don't even want to know his stats. It's like Caine from WoD: stat line literally reads "HAHAHAHAHAHA, No."

    The kunai rests easily in your hand and you feel your chakra system responding to the seal slightly. You could probably activate it with relative ease.

    "I will ask around. However, we usually do not allow guests outside of the Senjuu Clan into our lands. I will send a message to them regarding the subject." He says and he looks at one of his comrades before speaking, "Haruko-san requests your presence again. It appears that she has something for you to do."

    You leave the kunai in Gen's care and return to Haruko. She is waiting for you in the same spot with her hands in her pockets. "Shingen Hyuuga, we have some work for you. You will be accompanying myself, just the two of us, on a mission for the betterment of my Clan. If you prove to be successful, we will reconnect bonds with the Senjuu."

    New to quests. As for how we got so OP, that was a system flaw.


    The two of you arrive at the beehive and she jumps up into the air and throws a kunai at the wall and you see a mass of bees swarming towards you. She sends her kikkaichu out, falling out of the sky as she makes hand signs and unleashes a tight line of water, slicing across a block of bees, making them drop out of the sky.

    When you blast the hive open a massive horde of bees emerge, almost two thousand it seems, just a living wall of them. Their owners appear and call out, "A Hyuuga!? Alert Tenzo, he's needed here!" They say and draw kunai.

    I mean, or one success is cool too.

    You rush into the battle, seeing the first man and his swarm of stupid bees. Stopping to adjust your stance and thrust your two-fingered jab forward, hitting his chest, sealing a few nodes with your attack and making him gasp and stumble back a step. The sound of a low buzzing fills the air, drowning out the bees as you raise your hands and slash down his chest again, his attempts to feebly get out of the way failing. The wound is cauterized from the heat but you see his body is suffering from the pain and paralysis of the technique, his muscles numbed and his eyes swimming. His knees are weak and his bees aren't willing to get close to him, the scent and loss of his chakra making him appear dangerous to be near at the moment.

    (Damage equals 14. He's taken net 26. We gain 3 Grit.)

    The next few shinobi direct their swarms at you, but are met with the cold shame of defeat as Haruko blocks them with her swarm, the insects waging war as bee after bee drops from having their minute chakra drained away by the kikkaichu. When a man gets close to attack you with a tanto she slashes him across the face with a thin rapier-like sword made of water she's holding before running him through, the man's body slumping over.

    "Retreat! Get away!" A voice calls and the rest of the initial defenders flee for their lives from you both. Your victim is panting hard and kneeling, looking visibly not too harmed, but internally ravaged. He's helpless.

    Having not returned home in a while we're bereft of all but our bare essentials.

    She looks at you for a moment before saying, "As you wish, Hyuuga-san."

    You arrive in the massive center chamber of the Hive where a truly huge bee is immobile, its hindquarters bloated and attached to various threads of organic tubing. A swarm of bees is waiting, but they do not attack, staying near the Queen.

    In front of that is a tall bald man with a rebreather on his face and two mean-looking objects on the end of his arms. On his shoulders you see two globes of bees, swarming around, and as you see him breathe out through his nose the bees fly out and then crawl back into his body through his ears or eyes. "So, an Aburame...I see you brought a friend. Are you both so eager to die that you face me?." He asks, his voice muffled as your nose catches the scent of something subtle...and wrong.

    Oh lawdy look at them 10's.

    Must just be the must of this hive, you rationalize as you look at the bloated Queen out of the corner of your eye. "No one has ever defeated me in open combat, but to challenge me in my Hive? That's maddness." He says as he strolls idly around you and laughs, "I wonder which Aburame they sent me? Maybe you're the Queen's daughter, here to prove herself? Or maybe you're the unlucky fool who got saddled with this boy." he says and looks at you with his pale yellow eyes, "So, Hyuuga, how are you feeling about your chances?"

    You are about to make a witty retort as you suddenly feel your whole body burning, the discomfort only matched by the numbness as you gasp for air, unable to breathe. When you drop to your knees Haruko looks at you, "Hyuuga." She says, the slightest bit of alarm in her voice.

    (We're gonna take ourselves 10 damage from poison and have to roll just Rank targeting our Taijutsu to try and not suffocate.)

    As she turns her head, however, Tenzo is in motion. He flies towards her with a lunge that nearly catches her right in the stomach. By sheer blind luck she manages to turn and raise her knee, sending Tenzo backwards a step as she gushes kikkaichu, several of them swarming down to cover you and some, to your horror, entering your nose and mouth. "Try not to chew." She whispers.

    You gasp painfully and cough, the sensation of bugs in your throat and chest being wholly disturbing as you gasp and shake, the strength of your body, thankfully, being enough to numb the damage of the poison as the kikkaichu work with you to consume the venom.

    The effect of their intrusive healing, however, sets you on edge as you try to stand and find your knees weak.

    (We take -1 penalty from Fear, -1 penalty from the poison.)

    Tenzo attacks again, this time hitting Haruko in the leg as she slashes at his face, trying to cut his rebreather, which forces him to back away. When he's clear away she shrouds herself with kikkaichu as a knot of them coat your back as she whispers, "Trust me."

    You feel your chakra draining away, the bugs consuming it as you feel them getting heavier and heavier on your back.

    (Lost 14 chakra, we're down to 2.)

    They take flight and the ones surrounding Haruko do as well. They occupy a great deal of airspace before, with a vibrating sound, emitting a slight, but consistent, downpouring of rain. The rain is tinted black.

    Tenzo looks up, "You...are Haruko of the Monsoon." he says, surprised. She whispers, "Haruko Style: Step 1- Tears in Heaven. Hyuuga, I need your lightning, when I call for it, just relax for now."

    The fear will have to run its course. Just 3 more rounds to go of it.

    Tenzo shakes his head, "Do whatever you like, it matters not to me." He shakes off his blades and winks at Haruko who remains stoic, arms held out sideways, inviting a hit. "You're much too stupid for this world." Tenzo says as he laughs, then in a flicker he's in front of her, both blades an inch from her stomach. "Now, Hyuuga." She whispers.

    A huge torrent of water comes crashing down on Tenzo's head, making one of his blades miss but the other running through her stomach, diagonally as she bites down hard.

    Normally, no.

    That saved your life.

    You form up a chakra blast, like usual, and this time you breathe in and charge it with your lightning nature before releasing it right as she drops the torrent.

    (Tenzo takes 60 damage.)

    The pillar of water goes bright blue as he screams out in horrific pain, his whole body going rigid, his spine curling, and all the bees both in his body and his globes dying instantly as he drops to his knees, his body smoking, his rebreather completely melted onto his face, as well as his blades, he collapses face first onto the ground, the rebreather cracking like ceramic from the electricity. Lone bolts of lightning skip along his body every so often as water drips off his pathetic form.

    Haruko's slight wheeze of air alerts you to danger, she's bleeding severely, but she's walking over to the Queen with resolve as she draws the syringe and stabs it into the Queen, who screams out in pain and writhes, growing withered and pale as the tubes connecting her contract and turn the same color, the poison pumping through the Hive.

    You stop by Tenzo who seems to be immobile. You lift up your foot, charge it with chakra, and smash down hard. Not your usual style, but the comforting sound of bone snapping reassures you that you've done well.

    When you go to heal Haruko she stops you, "No time. We need to leave, this second." She says and her kikkaichu fly around her as they begin to dance over the wound and crawl into it. She makes a slight inhalation sound at the feeling of pain before walking, then running, back up to the entry hole.

    Any attempt to touch her is met with an icy cold stare and a simple order, "Stop. I'm fine." She says and indeed it seems her wounds are at least being ignored.

    You arrived safely in the Land of Grass, yet again, where she finally stops and when you ask to heal her she pauses before a trail of her kikkaichu float in the air, forming a bridge to her wound. "Put your hands onto the bugs, they'll transfer it to me." She says cooly before looking down as you do so, her hands trembling slightly from the pain.

    The chakra flows through the bugs which conduct it rapidly. Her body is subtle, her shoulders relax very slightly, her hands cease to shaking and she breathes out. The bugs retract and go back up her sleeves as she nods, "Thank you, Hyuuga. I owe you." She says and rises, walking alongside you, hands in her pockets as always.

    When you return a large number of the Aburame are waiting, silent and motionless as their insects swarm above them. She looks up and nods. "Good job, dear." An older man says as he puts his hand on her shoulder, squeezes once, and then let's go. Haruko faces you, "I will be sure to let the Senjuu Clan know that relations are fully repaired. Improved even. It was nice working with you Hyu-.....umm....Shingen." She says, and you can see the slightest area under her sunglasses turn a very very pale shade of pink, and only for a second, as she walks back with her Clan to the compound.

    Jako and Honda both run up to you, Honda gathering you up in a huge bear-hug, "Cousin!! I was worried about you, Shingen!" He says, his scruffy mountain-man beard against your arm as he drops you and coughs, grinning, "You're the man, Shingen." Jako looks at you with a small smile and nods, "Good job. You've made a lot of good things happen."

    Also, we seem ambitious as fuck. It strikes me that learning rotation on the sly could be a wonderful idea, if we can keep it from our clanmates. Speaking of them, how are our personal relations with our clan? We've gone from a very minor branch house to (effectively) a high up one in a short space of time, and with this success it's only going to bet better (worse). It might make sense to find out if this rapid promotion has made us any enemies (or new friends!), especially in the houses in between. Hyuuga politics must be a bitch.

    Dear god it's gorgeous.

    You breathe in and your hands fall to the position they normally do, but your mind seems to tell you this is wrong. Relaxing you let your body shift to a more broad stance, your left hand higher than your right as you feel your chakra system almost click as you ready yourself. Closing your eyes you feel something strange, your chakra nodes open up at once and slowly seep the smallest amount of chakra, almost indicating their readiness.

    With a moment of concentration, recollection, and preparation you expel chakra all at once, the ground around you, the leaves and trees close to you, and your friends, knocked back at once. Jako barely moves, but Honda even has to take a step back. Meanwhile you blasted the leaves off a bush and put a huge crack in an old tree. The ground has impact scars from the pressure of your attack.

    Yet this feels wrong. This is something else.

    (Shingen Style: Pressure Punishment, Untrained, gained.)

    With a pause you try again and this time you put dents and holes in the trees, careful to not hit your friends as small impact areas caused by sheer chakra control are visible on the tree's bark. The trees on three sides of you. The trees about fifteen feet away. Additionally, as you look around, each leaf that was in the air now has a perfect inch-wide hole punched through it.

    Correct, sorta.

    We can use it, but we use 1/2 the dice pool total, cannot crit, and do 1/2 damage with it. However, if we do get a crit, we do normal damage.

    We can buy that off. When we do get MP again we can put it towards the jutsu. If we put MP equal to the amount the jutsu is worth, we get the jutsu, plain and simple.

    Jako remains silent as ever, but is impressed as he breathes out a loud sigh of air, showing you he had to tense up to absorb the hit. Honda whistles, "Wow Shingen, you really are a genius, aren't you pal?" He says and laughs, "I'm a lucky man to have a guy like you as a cousin!"

    You and your comrades head back to the Senjuu compound, tell them the results, are met with stunning praise and are given a seal signed by Hashirama giving you outstanding praise. Honda, however, has to work on Clan affairs, and will be leave your party for a while. He thanks you for the fun and bids Jako a fond farewell.

    You and the big guy head home in a short span of time and when you return you see the compound is a little more dolled up than usual. Lanterns and other decorations hang around the compound. There's even some signs saying, "Congratulations Kumomaru!"

    The short list:
    Our Chakra manipulation skills
    The Aburame clan's bugs
    Chakra seals, both from our clan's signature jutsu and otherwise.
    Our fooking eyes being able to read chakra flows.

    That right there is enough to justify having the idea in character, having a vague idea of how such a technique would work, and everything we'd need to actually use a technique like that.

    That's the general outline of it anyway. there's at least a dozen more specific things scattered but that's the gist of it.

    >random power outta nowhere that doesn't fit the character as he's been portrayed.

    1.We are a manipulative, chess-master style.
    2.We use close and mid-range attacks
    3.We Count on our speed.
    4.We count on our enemy detection.
    5.We prefer counter-attacking style.
    6.We gather a group of strange allies.
    7.We are genius.

    We are literally one step removed from the classic Vampire Archtype personality wise, and that is the bit that involves actually feeding on other people.

    And we could fix that, quite easy.


    By the way, a lot of the comparisons are drawn out in greater detail in the archive.

    As for the meta level, it's awesome for several reasons: Potentially endless chakra pool in battle, weakens our opponent, and induces fear in our enemies. Seriously, how do you think they're going to react when they see us kill their buddy, and then come to the realization that we ate his soul (metaphorically speaking) and are now using that power to hunt them.

    Remember that 90 damage lightning jutsu earlier? Now imagine being able to do shit like that but MORE and BIGGER.

    It's a serious power boost, isn't as far removed from character as you seem to think, and lets be totally honest here:

    We're almost certainly going head to head with Madara at some point during this quest. We know this both IC and OOC. We NEED something this big in case it comes to blows, see >>17209273

    I think that clarifies the collective pro-'vampire' argument, and I know that at least 3 other people were agreeing with me on this earlier.

    We can manipulate our own chakra, yes.
    The Aburame will NEVER surrender their bugs to our inspection so we can be Dracula. Ever. That's insanity. It's like asking a Hyuuga to give someone our Byakugan.
    Chakra seals? You mean the ability to store things with chakra? Or write traps? I'm not following this one.
    Yes, we can read chakra. That's true.
    It's also completely out of left field. Just because we happen to follow the archetype doesn't mean we should. We DON'T have what we need, in the slightest.
    And with that I offer my strong opinion of the idea.
    With that, we move on the story.


    You find your Father, who is surrounded by all your brothers and sisters, all of whom are exuberantly congratulating Kumomaru. When they see you, however, everyone goes quiet except for your Father, who walks up and hugs you, "Ah! Shingen, my youngest son. It's good to see you again, my boy. I've missed you!" He says with a smile and puts his arm around your shoulders, "Come my boy, we have great news. Kumomaru, do you want to tell him?" Kumomaru summons up a smile and shakes your hand, "Hello Shingen, it's been quite a while. A very long while. I'm a Pale Champion. The Patriarch gave his blessings, I'm in the First House. And...I'm marrying Ran, tomorrow!" he says, his excitement breaking through as you receive a warm hug from your brother.

    Your other siblings, however, aren't so happy about seeing you, it seems. They are mostly average shinobi, except for your eldest sibling, your big sister, Emiko. She wears her hair back in a tall ponytail and displays her Curse Mark proudly as she crosses her arms, standing just a bit taller than your Father, "Why are you being so kind to Shingen? He's never around when anything happens." She says and snorts, but your Father smiles kindly and kisses her forehead, "Emiko, be nice, your brother has missed you, I'm sure."

"Pleasure to meet you Jako." He says and Kumomaru looks up at the mountainous man, "Wow, you're a big fella." Jako remains stoic.

Obviously we seem to be quite close to Kumo, but I've no idea how we're supposed to act towards our sister, or any of the others. On the subject of Kumo, now he's going to be Main House Hyuuga. How much do we trust him? So far his loyalties have been with his family, will they now turn to the Main House at our expense?

    Is this going to be an envy thing where Shingen is the outcast among most of his siblings because he's a genius?

    >The Aburame will NEVER surrender their bugs to our inspection so we can be Dracula. Ever. That's insanity. It's like asking a Hyuuga to give someone our Byakugan.

    Not the intention. More like how now we KNOW that's possible, and have a vague idea of how it works, due to our exposure to their techniques. Not encyclopedic knowledge of all they secrets.

    >Chakra seals? You mean the ability to store things with chakra? Or write traps? I'm not following this one.

    Like how the entire Hyuga thing involves fucking with other people's chakra. Sealing it, manipulating it, turning it against the wielder. Actually stealing it and absorbing it seems like the next logical step, now that we know it's possible.

    >It's also completely out of left field. Just because we happen to follow the archetype doesn't mean we should. We DON'T have what we need, in the slightest.

    I'd disagree on the left field, we've seen enough shit that the idea could reasonably occur to us, even if we aren't 100% sure how to do it. I'd be willing to meet you half-way on this, like have it be a temporary thing only like our compressed Chakra. As for if we SHOULD... Highly debatable. I'm leaning towards YES, you're leaning towards NO. We both have our reasons.

    We're also going Batman pretty fast. Give me a few minutes, and I can come up with a couple different reasons for us to do the Vampire thing.

    Historically they mostly ignored you or paid minor attention. You are the youngest by a fair margin, and as such never really grew up with any of them except Kumomaru who always was your big bro. He liked you a lot and cared about you the most.

    The rest of your siblings were out doing missions, or, in Emiko's case, killing samurai. She lead the largest counter-samurai series of missions in the Clan's history and is a war heroine. They call her the Alabaster Princess. She's the other genius in the family.

    Kumo has always loved you and Father more than anyone else in the world, except for maybe Ran.

    Your siblings always have maintained a polite distance, it's not unusual in a family where each branch has roughly six to ten children a piece.

    Emiko is indeed the eldest. She's 27.

    Emiko's personal ambition shows little more than a desire to be recognized as the best. She's been the most beautiful sister, the strongest fighter period, and the most talented with her Ninjutsu, including her famed ultimate technique that even worries you, Ivory Midnight. You have never seen it, but you've heard that it's unbelievable. Even your Dad is helpless before it.

    Now, I have a true hard-on for summoning, can't lie there. But I'll tell you this personal bit of info. "Pay a little extra" for Orochimaru, was 3 UA's. Bats=/= Vampires. Bat powers? Sure. Vampires, not so much. So no, I will never DREAM of giving that for 20 MP (Ninja prease).

    I was using that as an example of how we could justify getting the technique via contract. Since it's one move, we could make it the one UA we haven't decided on yet. Something like how we can spend a point or two of grit to drain a little on top of an attack, or we could go all out and try to rip a big chunk out by dedicating out action to that. the OP problem could be solved by making it a short-term boost like our compression technique.

    >Bats=/= Vampires.

    Now you're fucking with me.

    >So no, I will never DREAM of giving that for 20 MP.

    That was an example. It was a summon (15 MP, or so I thought) plus one technique/technique boost (like how we can lightning into everything) for 5 MP and count it as part of the cost.

    That five could be the base price to an upgradeable technique, like how Blitz isn't that bad for like the first rank or two and then the price goes UP.

    I'm willing to negotiate here, if you're willing to meet me half-way. Several people in the quest said it'd be cool, I'm merely the most vocal advocate.

    I kept meaning to post that the IRC was fairly dead. I've been in there for the last 3 hours or so.

    Dang. I thought we might have an answer with the mother thing there. When you said hate in that last bit about emi, OP, was it actual hate or just a really large dislike of us? Because I can rationalise out even a massive dislike in a family, but hatred, to me at least, requires something really, really serious.

    Please try to understand this from my side. We're trying to make something good. The harem route thing just seems so counter to what we're working towards. That's what I'm saying.

    I honestly would, were it not for the fact that for some reason IRC hates this computer. It makes no sense to me, and I've been trying to fix it.

    >No Harem Route.
    >Period. I will not budge on it.

    OP Confirmed for fun hating Nazi. JK.

    >Play with me, I play back. Personally, I just don't want to handle that, because it gives, in my eyes, too much the opinion of being fapfic.

    I can see why you might think that, even though nobody on the other side of the screen sees it that way.

    If I might explain the reasoning: Our character has been shown as somewhat greedy, manipulative, cunning, while at the same time having a very soft caring side for certain friends and family. This is especially true when it comes to the women in his life, possibly more so due to some mental issues that come with growing up without a mother (and being surrounded by people who won't shut up about how awesome she was).

    As a result, he knows that rejecting one or more of them is the right thing to do, but the flip side of the coin is that that means he hurts someone he genuinely cares about, and he's giving up something. Both of which run directly counter to both his Nindo and his general personality.

    >> Anonymous 12/14/11(Wed)08:48 No.17212577

    Given that he's beginning to juggle a bunch of plots at once, relationships are getting more serious and tense, and he's about to start making the big gambles even with a dozen dirty secrets under his belt worth his life and more.

    He's emotionally/mentally damaged, greedy, conniving, and snarky. He's the embodyment of the trope of the Magnificent Bastard at his core (and/or is desperately trying to be) and it all has the potential to go so horribly wrong. But also to go so horribly RIGHT.

    He's adding Gambits and gambles left and right at this point, and he looks like he's gonna fall bad.

    And that's why we want him to succeed. It's not a fetish thing, it's a complicated love story that beautifully compliments every other aspect of the character and the story thus far.

    I can understand you hesitance, but honestly? I'd throw out every single other concession just to kick that particular brand of madness up a notch.

    Just my two cents.

    Son of a bitch, I was on the 'no-fapfic' side of the line, but Jesus Christ. It is literally supported and even enforced by every goddamned aspect of our character. I never even CONSIDERED the 'growing up without a mother' thing.

    Polite reminder, I'm not sure Inari's into sharing. For starters. We can still be close and not be in a harem. That's all I'm saying.

    Now, shall we press on?

    The arrangements for the wedding dominate much of the day before you are beckoned to the Patriarch's, a very familiar call.

    Today, however, rather than meeting in the big assembly room, you meet in his personal quarters. He is sitting on his cushion and when you sit opposite him the room is closed and he regards you, "Shingen. Your brother weds tomorrow, and that is wonderful news. However, I have dire news to share with you." He says and produces a scroll.

    "This is our family tree." he says and points to the main branch where he sits at the top. However, beneath his name you see a series of names crossed out, with only two remaining. Ran and her younger brother, Hito. "Tomorrow, your brother becomes the primary heir to the Main Branch. We will make his Mark untouchable to any Main Branch members and teach him the technique to use the Mark." He explains before looking at you. "I....I am not comfortable with the idea of Kumomaru of the Eighth ruling the Clan when I pass." he admits finally to you before looking at you, "I want you to. Shingen, I want you to speak to your Father about disowning you, and then I will adopt you as my son. You are older than Ran, so your claim will be superior."

    Your point is understood.

    We will see how the story plays out. I promise to be fair. Play it right, you may yet have your goal.

    Semper Fi, you Magnificent Bastard. Semper Fi.
    >> Mooglepies 12/14/11(Wed)08:56 No.17212613
    Personally, I have no issue with some (maybe 3 at most women) vying for our affections.

    I would however consider it slightly unrealistic (in the setting, as well as IRL) if those women were willing to share with each other. They ain't, as both Inari and Momoji have shown in spades.

    My two pennies (confound you Americans) there.

    I take actual hatred to mean "Actively wishing or acting to harm", so maybe she's not that bad. Still, it's a bit odd...

    And that's how you play people. You set up a complicated frame for character manipulation from the very beginning, allowing for instances and justification.

    Build off the input of others, and then twist the world to your ends. All for the sake of your personal amusement.

    Don't worry Shingen's in good hands.

    >By the way, the post is mostly joking. I honestly had no idea there would be multiple potential love interests until well after the basic frame-work for Shingen being who is was laid out. honestly? Don't care much way or the other myself, but not shooting for it now would be breaking character and metagaming.

    Also, I like the vampire Idea, but i have no idea how to balance it. I personally like the current suggestion

    Gendo Vampire Batman Hokage Pimp.

    Mein Gott, it actually makes MORE sense with Gendo in the picture.

    Gendo/Batman would be the perfect Kage. Vampire/Pimp clicks together like magic.

    Gendo/Pimp would just about HAVE to be under the circumstances.

    Kage/Vampire is an awesome mental image, and the darker/brooding aspects fit well.

    Pimp/Kage he's the fucking Hokage. who's going to step in and say something?

    Everything plays off everything else. We can now describe Shingen in five words: Gendo Vampire Batman Hokage Pimp.

    On another hand, I was thinking about how shingen would have achieved peace in the world. There was either conquer everything, or be like Zhuge Liang and establish power blocs that would act as a deterrent against aggression from each other due to the presence of third party power bloc.

    Basically have Shingen be the architect of the Hidden Village System?a

    Bastard. Utter, utter, bastard.

    Politics rears its ugly head. Ladies and germs, let's all pause for reflection here, this is a flash point.

    Shingen will want some time to think about this. How ambitious is Kumo? Has he been this ambitious so far solely because of his love for Ran, or because he wants the power as well? What is dad going to say? Emi's going to throw a wobbly too. Shit.

    You bastard, OP.
    >> Mooglepies 12/14/11(Wed)09:17 No.17212747
    In IRC we just pointed out that if we accept, all of Kumo's kids become branch house members. Seal and all. Shit.

    Point. We can ask the patriarch why he's giving us a choice in the matter (please don't, yet, OP, I think with something this massive we need, if not a unanimous decision, at least a few more answers first).
    >> KumaSennin !!hAxKShXKS9j 12/14/11(Wed)09:19 No.17212753
    Kumo's only shown a drive since he met Ran. But whether or not that's who he is or what is yet to be seen.

    Certainly. Seems like a good time for OP to finally get some sleep.

    The way I see it, Shingen aspires to be so much more than this.

    And having our brother who loves us be in charge makes our goals all the easier.

    Act shocked. "I... I'll need some time to think about this. This is...." just don't finish the sentence. The fact that we're always so composed should underscore just how unexpected this is.
    >> Anonymous 12/14/11(Wed)09:36 No.17212830

    I'm personally voting no for various reasons:
    First, it completely fucks our brother.
    Second, It locks us into the Hyuga line. This means no shot at being the Hokage, and CERTAINLY no Harem ending.
    Third, fucking our brother would reveal the dark side to our movements and ambitions. The very thing all of our plans hinge on staying hidden.
    Fourth, if the shit we're planning on pulling in the near future goes south, we're minimizing damage. Whole clan goes with if we fuck up as boss, but if it's just us? Better for everyone. Plus the glory would be that much greater.
    Fifth, Leader is expected to stay and lead. Meaning we don't get to go hopping across country anymore.
    Sixth, we don't want to screw our family like that. Our Older sister and brother are easily as strong as we are apiece, and they might well decide to off us.
    Seventh, Inari. Not happening with her. This is worth a separate point of listing besides the Harem ending just because of how kwayzee she is.
    >> Anonymous 12/14/11(Wed)09:37 No.17212833

    Eighth, we have to marry Hyuga. Damn near everything we've been doing thus far has been with the distant goal of getting ourselves, and our children, the fuck out of that viper's nest.
    Nineth, A position of power like that implies a bias. We can still pretend to be impartial where we are now, which is critical to our schemes.
    Tenth, fuck the Hyuga. Fuck them, fuck their seals, fuck the houses, and everybody who thinks that shit's a good idea. You know what becoming the Hokage and having kids would do? Put Byakugan wielders firmly beyond the reach of all that clan bullshit. without that insane monopoly going for them, that clan falls the fuck apart within 3 generations. 4 tops.

    Seriously. Even the fucking UCHIHA aren't that insane when it comes to guarding their secrets and power.

    The Uchiha, where a power boost means murdering and cannibalizing your friends and family.

    When you make the Uchiha look sane by comparison, you have fucked up.

    And that's just ten reasons. I got a lot more. For now though, stall for time. Even if I think the other choice is insane, I agree that we need time to think it over.

    All we have to do is explain our plan to Inari.

    And about how Inari killing him would fuck everything over because we aren't accepting the deal.

    If Inari knows we're never going for it, killing our brother serves no purpose. If our brother stands directly between us and power in her mind.....

    Actually, I can't see how she'd think killing our brother would be a good idea either way. either we accept, and he's no threat or we refuse and he's not a threat because he's going down a completely different road than us.

    Inari doesn't do logic. Not as we see it, anyway.

    I think we need to know a few things.

    One, we need to know how quickly to move.

    Two, we need to know what dad thinks about this, if we can stomach telling him.

    We also need to find out just how ambitious our big brother is, and we need to find out why and just how much the patriarch doesn't want Kumo to take over. If it's so much that he's willing to kill Kumo to take him out of the top spot, that's no good at all.

    I think we're probably fucked either way here, folks. OP has played us well...
