    Re: earth blah

    dun wanna

    *I channel my earthen chakra within me, until I feel ready to work with the technique. I focus this chakra into shape manipulation and picturing a boar's head but rather large and hollow able to fit quite a few people into it. Picturing the not really needed, but minute things: the tusks of the boar, it's feral fur and emotions full of anger within. I get down on my right knee, slamming my hands on the ground and attempting to bring my mind-thought masterpiece to life. If it works, a portal or something like that should appear above me, trapping myself within the boar shaped lid. I then channel my earth chakra within myself, unbeknownst to you while performing the Snake seal and allow my body but moreso my skin to take on the properties of rock. My skin becomes as hard as steel, and almost pitch black. I focus chakra into my right arm while getting up from my kneeling position and walk over to one of the barriers of the lid I just created. I bring my arm up, and perform a backwards swing sort of thing, hitting the lid with the right side of my fist, and allowing it to crumble right on top of me, but making sure none of the debris falls on me.*

    (Doton: Domu) – Earth Release: Earth Spear Technique
    Rank: B
    Type: Supplementary
    Range: Short
    Chakra cost: 20
    Damage points: N/A (+10 to physical attacks)
    Description: After performing the Snake hand seal the user will channel their chakra throughout their entire body, which then hardens their skin to a steel-like quality. This increases their defensive power to the utmost limits. The user’s skin also becomes much darker, an almost black colour. The destructive power of physical attacks is increased, making this a great, all purpose technique. But this technique when activated leaves the user vulnerable to lightning based techniques.

    With the rubble around me just sitting there, I use it to my advantage, drawing my chakra from the techniques used earlier. My skin reverts to it's original shade of pale while I harness the chakra within me. Using the ground as a medium, I create a segment of mud in front of me, and using shape manipulation to shape these segments of mud into two seperate clones of myself. I make sure to grab all of my best features while creating these clones: my pale skin, perfect teeth and not to mention godly, curvy figure and create the clones. They form from the mud and I give the order for the two of them to start attacking each other using simple taijutsu moves like punching and kicking etc. I focus on retaining the clones' integrity, so that if one of the clones were to 'kill' the other, I would be able to recreate the clone.

    Re: earth blah

    Great scotts!! This'll be fun... :zonder:

    I want you to keep up the awesome description as we continue the training. From now on, I also want a pro/con to each jutsu I give you, so that I know you understand the technique properly. Sometimes there'll be something speical about a technique many people overlook, and that's where the pro/con in my training comes in handy.
    So, with that said, here are your first two jutsu from me:
    (Doton: Musaborudzuchi) – Earth Release: Devouring Earth
    Rank: B
    Type: Offensive
    Range: Short-Long

    Description: The user performs the Ram → Horse → Tiger → Rabbit → Snake and slams their palm on the ground. Instantly, the ground to the sides of the opponent take the shape of huge jaws and attempt to crush and stab him between them.
    • Form the handseals
    • Slam your palm on the ground
    • Focus doton chakra through the ground before you
    • Cause the earth before you to rise into the air like two halves of a sphere comming together
    • Use shape manipulation to make the two pieces of earth hollow, and appear like jaws (with teeth and everything)

    (Doton: Tsuchi Kairō) - Earth Release: Earth Corridor

The user can leave an opening to allow attacks to go in to strike down the trapped adversaries, or close it up completely to prevent escape.
    • Form the handseal
    • Focus your chakra into the ground beneath me
    • Cause the ground to rise up around me, creating a cavern

    Re: earth blah



    Great Scott!

    I'll try to keep the detail up, but no promises since it all seems so straight forward and I hate repeating myself all the time. I mean I'm not going to mention I channel my earth chakra throughout my body every time unless it's kind of a specific spot to do it in.

    --

    Devouring Earth
    As a beginner in this technique, I want to take extra precautions, focusing on forming the technique at hand instead of making unnecessary movements so I start by kneeling onto my right leg. This is a rather complex technique to create, manipulation wise and these sorts of techniques have hand seals. I perform these hand seals (Ram → Horse → Tiger → Rabbit → Snake) at a rather sluggish speed, taking roughly 4 seconds to do them, just to make sure I get them right with hand placements. Almost instantly after creating the final Snake seal, I broke my hands away from each other, slamming the palms unto the ground beneath me; easily accessible from me kneeling on the ground already. I focus my earth chakra within the ground, allowing myself to manipulate it at will. The technique is a large scale, so precision is needed for the technique. Focusing on the ground before me, I focus on creating two large slabs of the earth, with more of a shark's mouth shaping to it; this will rise to be approximately 5 meters in height when finished. Shaping this earth, I cause it as it rises to take on a more deathly appearance, like a shark coming out of the water to bite onto a poor victim's legs. Focusing on lining the edges with rather large and sharp teeth, so that escaping means they'll be stabbed with these teeth, and making it hollow as well, allowing for a rather small dome, unpenetrable because of it's thickness and lack of space.

    Pros to this technique is that it's vagueness does have an element of freeform to it in a sense, if you're really specific you can use the technique in multiple different ways. Spiked walls rising from the ground to stab and crush someone, creating a dome which is hard to escape from because of the interlocking jaws which hold it together and so on. The possibilities are endless. Cons are that it would have multiple ways of detecting the jutsu before it physically happens. The technique comes from the ground, so small tremors are going to be present before it actually forms, giving some time for reaction.

    Earth Corridor
    I begin by just taking a stand, following from my previous technique. I take a deep breath, starting to mould even more earth chakra within the ground, allowing me to take control over the terrain. I immediately perform the Snake seal, a common seal for Earth techniques. Doing this allows me to take an even greater control of the earth and the terrain for the technique. Controlling the ground, I create an extremely large amount of earth to take form in a rough circle around you (at your request), spanning about 6 meters radius from your central position. I develop the walls from the earth to manipulate roughly, giving it more of an appearance of a cavern and not of a large dome. These walls are also made to be quite thick, removing any form of simple penetration from the walls, such as a kunai or something. I allow these walls to quickly rise, almost like it were propagating from the ground, forming a large cavern with a small hole in the top, which could be treated like a sun roof, and extends approx. 8 meters high. The hole is big enough for someone to get in or out of there, although getting out would prove to be a challenge to anyone.

    Pros is that it creates a cavern. Like the previous technique, it's open to size modifications or however the user depicts the jutsu as. This can also create an arena of sorts, preventing escape and just using it as something to fight within, making your opponent lose the edge. It can also be used as something which crumbles after creating the cavern. What I mean is making it all form pressure at the top of the cavern like you were closing it up, but allowing the pressure to make it snap like a pencil you're pressuring into bending, which causes the entire cavern to crumble and can maim the target easily. Cons are that if you were to jump into this cavern, it also limits yourself as you wouldn't be able to see well. Also it's creating a dome which you would lose physical sight of your opponent, allowing them to surprise you from emerging from underground or something, unless you had a Doujutsu of course.

    Re: earth blah

    That was amazing... Alright, so for performing the technique, I don't really require a masterpiece of description, but the more the better. However much you need to accurately describe how you believe the technique works, that'll be fine (I realize that people are busy, so I have some lee-way with description as it can eat up some time...). However, providing as much description as you can come up with during training is essential so your trainer can see how you believe the technique works, so we can say "yep, you got it!" or "there's something wrong with that; it's more like...", so that you don't mis-use techniques in battle where less description is needed. Right? Anyhow, that was great; onto the next two techs. :D
    (Doton: Arijigoku no Jutsu) - Earth Release: Antlion Technique
    Rank: B
    Type: Offense
    Range: Mid/Long
    Chakra Cost: 20
    Damage Points: 40
    Description: The user performs the Ram hand seal and causes causes the ground and everything on and around it to be sucked in towards the middle of a large pit, much like the method an antlion uses to catch prey. Upon being dragged to the centre, the victim will then be sucked underground. There the victim, depending on how deep the user makes them sink, will be trapped and/or suffocated. The range of the pit is determined by how much chakra is put into the technique.
    • Form the handseal
    • Focus your chakra into the area over there
    • Cause your chakra, and the surrounding earth, to be drawn to the center of the chakra mass
    • Cause the earth in the center to go down, creating a space for trapped victims


    (Doton: Doryū Jōheki) - Earth Release: Earth Flow Rampart
    Rank: B
    Type: Defence/Supplementary
    Range: Short/Mid
    Chakra Cost: 20
    Damage Points: N/A
    Description: By performing the Tiger hand seal the user then makes a gigantic rampart rise up beneath the user's feet, by shaping the ground and increasing the amount of earth with chakra. Depending on what the user imagines, the shape of the rampart can be anything from level ground to a steep, needle-like mountain. If the user increases the volume of earth too much, he can be forced to keep his chakra consumption down. The user can combine this jutsu with Water Style: Waterfall Basin Technique to create a waterfall.
    • Form the tiger handseal
    • Focus earth chakra beneath you
    • Raise the earth to create a platform for you to stand on

    Re: earth blah

    I know a masterpiece isn't needed, but I don't like being repetitive with mentioning how I channel my earth chakra, allowing it to flow throughout my body before doing anything every time.

    --

    Antlion Technique
    Standing right before me, I gaze upon a large field of nothing, which I've been given permission to wreck havoc on for the technique I'm about to perform. I begin my ritual by performing the Ram hand seal, firmly gripping the Seal of Confrontation I've made with my right hand, with my left. Doing this, I allow my earth chakra, already moulded within me to take form in the ground. Taking control of the earth chakra within the ground allows me to bend it to my will. I channel my chakra to a single point within the ground, constantly sending a feed of it towards this area until it becomea a single chakra mass. When I feel ready, I manipulate this chakra mass to allow the earth to sink into the chakra, utilizing the chakra to create sinking properties. It starts off like a relatively small sinkhole, but as I focus more and more chakra into the point of chakra mass, I let it grow into a bigger sinkhole, until it becomes a massive antlion. I'm constantly making sure that I don't personally get sucked into the antlion or I'd be ****ed. I'm also making sure the chakra I send into the hole is constantly moving downwards to this single point so that it's more like quicksand than just a hole.

    This is a massive sinkhole of sorts, giving a quicksand effect. It's not as fast as something like Swamp of the Underworld in terms of formation or how fast someone sinks into the antlion, but it's area is quite large as shown in the anime where iirc it was able to drown a temple plus several of Naruto's shadow clones. Also escape if left for too long may prove to be impossible as you can simply stop channeling your chakra, allowing for the ground to harden up again. As for cons, this does cover a large area and alters the terrain quite heavily. It'd be hard to fight in a terrain like a used antlion.

    Earth Flow Rampart
    Using the same sort of procedure from the previous technique, I begin moulding my earth chakra within the ground, allowing myself conplete control over it. At the same time as my channeling of the earthen chakra, I perform a simpe Tiger hand seal, allowing myself to actually shift the earth from underneath me seeing as I'll need to shift a large amount. This technique was created originally to support a waterfall's creation, so I'll simply need to size the technique up to something like that. Performing the hand seal, I attempt to uplift a massive portion of the earth below me, trying to range the monument of earth to about 15 meters longitude, and 5 meters latitude (lack of better words). I still focus my earth chakra, performing the technique to bring up this amount of earth, like it were just growing out of the ground similar to the Earth Release Technique but much larger and slower. As I'm making the earth rise, I attempt to make it rise to about 10 meters tall, just as a starting point for the technique. Should I be successful, I should have created a large cliff-like structure, completely out of the earth itself, standing at 15x5x10 with myself on top of the monument.

    Pros are simple, it creates a giant cliff interface. This can be controlled by the user as to how big or small he wants it to rise the plateau of earth. I would personally use this technique offensively rather than supplementary, creating a giant ledge which would be hard to balance on, following by another technique like spikes or something to kill them instantly. Other than that, I'd also use the technique to rise up the ground, creating a pseudo-arena for us to fight on, really restricting what we can and can't use. Cons is that unlike the fancy A-Rank technique I forget what it's called which Kitsuchi introduced in the manga, this can't lower the earth either, nor is it as fast to create. To make it a size you really want, you'll need to channel quite a bit of chakra into it, which generally means focusing on the technique and not on your opponent.

    Re: earth blah

    *McDonalds song.* I'm lovin' it. But seriously, that was good (the tech is Moving Earth Core).

    (Doton: Doryō Dango) - Earth Release: Earth Mausoleum Dumping
    Rank: B
    Type: Offense
    Range: Short/Mid
    Chakra Cost: 20
    Damage Points: 40
    Description: The user With chakra work and superhuman strength, lifts up the very surface of the Earth. The lump of earth is gigantic and, the destructive power is obvious, but even just the visual impact can be enough to make enemies lose their fighting spirits and run away. The ball of earth is then hurled it at his opponent, flattening everything in its path.
    • Focus your chakra into your hands and the earth right in front of you
    • Pry out a large chunk of earth from the ground
    • Throw the ball of earth away from both of us


    (Doton: Doryuheki) - Earth Release: Earth Style Wall Jutsu
    Rank: B
    Type: Supplementary
    Range: Short
    Chakra Cost: 20
    Damage Points: N/A
    Description: The user will first perform the Tiger → Hare → Boar → Dog and then creates a solid wall of earth as a form of defence. Chakra is either converted to earth within the body and then spat out to form the wall or the user can manipulate pre-existing earth to form the wall. The earth then instantly rises up and takes form. The barrier itself is also coated with chakra, making its strength incomparable to that of a normal mud wall. Because of the earth's special characteristics, the wall is highly resistant against, for instance, fire and water. Hizuren Sarutobi spits mud from his mouth to perform the jutsu whilst Kakashi creates a wall composed of bulldog sculptures to box-in Pain.
    • Form the handseals
    • Focus doton chakra to your right and raise the earth in a wall
    • Focus doton chakra into your mouth and spit out mud which rises and forms a wall infront of you
    • Focus doton chakra into the ground to your left and behind you and raise the earth in a creative fashion (ie. Kakashi making a wall of bulldog statues)

    In a fight, you would choose one way, but I'm making sure you know all the ways this jutsu can be used.

    Re: earth blah

    I knew it was something, but I haven't learnt it yet so of course I don't know what it is.

    --

    Earth Masoleum Dumpling
    This technique requires a bit of what would be considered superhuman strength, so I know I'm not going to get to the level required on my first try, I prepare for a smaller scale of technique. I begin my channeling my earth chakra directly into my hands, while constantly staring at how beautiful they are. I bend over to the ground, digging my hands into the earth itself and allowing my chakra to flow right from the tips of my fingers into a large quantity of the earth below me so that I would be able to lift it up. Using my "superhuman" strength, I firmly grasp the slab of earth beneath me, lifting up an immensely large chunk of rock, holding it above my head. Just for starters, it's about 5 meters in diameter and 3 meters tall. As I'm holding up the large rock above me, it's evident it looks perfect, just from the way the ground has been altered. Twisting my body to the left, I take a slight movement backwards with my arms, like I were about to throw the lump away from us which I am. With all my strength, I move my body forward, creating momentum for throwing and throw the rock away from the both of us, leaving us both without harm.

    Pros: It's a giant ****ing piece of the earth. . I can't put it any other way. It's pretty big, even if a lightning jutsu were to hit it, unless it's big enough to counteract something as big as this technique, There's no guarantee it will destroy it due to it's sheer size of the technique compared to some of the lightning techniques we see. This technique would pretty much squish anyone it lands on, due to the weight of the technique and the force of it being thrown. Cons are it takes time to perform this technique, lifting up the large rock, throwing it and so on, not to mention it leaves your hands preoccupied, so performing this technique means they have a chance to get in close or whatever they want. It also alters the earth like the other techniques, leaving the earth with a giant crater.

    Earth Style Wall Jutsu
    From previously using earth chakra beforehand, I shouldn't need to channel so much just to practice a simple technique. I perform the hand seals needed for the technique, finishing on the Dog seal. Performing this seal, I focus the earth chakra towards my right side, allowing for earth to erect itself in the form of a wall. Considering there a jutsu like this in lower ranks, it's rather larger than that, standing at around 3 meters tall and reinforced with chakra, small techniques would have a hard time breaking through that. To the front of me, I channel my earth chakra towards my mouth, allowing it to manifest within me a large allotment of mud. I spit out the mud, making sure to keep churning mud within me so I can spit out more and create a large wall with the amount of mud. I take control of the mud I've just spat out and using shape manipulation transform it into a wall. I finish by hardening the mud so that it takes the form of the wall, but without me needing to keep throwing chakra at it to keep it up. Finally, to the left side of me, I need to raise the earth in a sassy gay creative fashion. The only way I can think of it, is by idolizing a certain someone. I focus chakra into the ground, bringing up a large chunk of the earth, constantly moulding it so it takes the form of a nice wall. The wall is comprised of rippling muscles, a bowl cut and green spandex, and looks just like a giant statue of Might Guy, but is able to protect me. It's pulling a Nice Guy pose.

    Pros is that it's basically a giant wall erecting in front of you or to the side of you or whatever. It can be shaped or formed however you want, so you don't necessarily need to manipulate the existing earth to use it. Great if you're fighting on different terrains which pull you over to water, or Tenchi Bridge etc. Using the wall to create something like Bulldogs means you can also use it to create something rather intimidating and protect yourself, like a spiked wall or using the mud variant to trap someone's fist in it. I honestly can't think of any cons for the technique, other than it might take a while to create the technique?

    Re: earth blah

    The walls can also box-in your opponent, making them good for that, too. As for cons... B-rank, solely for defense (although you've mentioned some good ways to use it unorthadoxly, such as trapping people in mud, or making a spiked wall), it takes away from your vision of the opponent... Take your pick.

    Re: earth blah

    Oh my god I am so sorry for not replying to this sooner! It's like, I kind of lost motivation, and this first technique is boring. D:
    As for that Wall technique and those cons, I'm not going to be saying "weak to lightning" or "B-Rank" or whatever because those are fairly obvious when I discussed them with whoever taught me first I can't even remember. xD But yeah I won't be mentioning them.

    --

    Hiding in Rock Technique
    First, I begin to allow my chakra to flow within me, with it already converted to earthen chakra. I start to create the feeling like I am to be a part of the earth itself, taking on it's properties. Within a short amount of time I merge myself with the ground, making sure to focus chakra around me constantly so I don't just get stuck in the ground. I move around and come out of a wall you previously created of B-Rank.

    I'm sorry this is short, it seems way too similar to Earth Projection Fish and I don't want to write that out again. >_<

    Pros is that it's a stronger usage of the Earth Projection Fish technique, it being B-Rank you can move in and out of techniques infused with your opponent's chakra of B-Rank or lower. I'm also going to assume that you're "blending" with the ground instead of the method which Earth Projection Fish uses which I was taught is creating a bubble of sorts to go into the ground. I suppose this one could be similar to how Obito's Phasing Migration technique works in a sense, and thus can be used as a defense against techniques like Earth Flow Spears.
    I can't think of cons apart from obvious rank, but a question. Can this technique be used against A-Rank or higher techniques which don't have any chakra in them? Say, you use Earth Moving Core to create a big thing sticking out the ground and leave it like that, I can merge into that using this technique?

    Earth Flow Spears
    I begin by focusing my chakra whilst simultaneously performing the needed handseal, Bird for the technique. The earth should be pretty torn up from previous techniques, so focusing my chakra into the ground I try to take form of as much of the loosened earth as possible, also aiming for some dirt, stones and so on to form the technique. I use these various elements and bring them all together, condensing the substances to make it a much more plausible material, like it were solid rock. Piling all of this together, I use my manipulative abilities in chakra to allow the small abundance of condensed rocks and dirt to erupt in a plethora of spikes coming from each location. They spread outwards trying to cover as much ground as possible like a flower would bloom from it's bud, which would surely impale any target who was there at the time.

    I'm not sure on scaling for this technique. :/

    Pros is that it's a clever technique, best used when taking the terrain into consideration. For instance, if this were to be used in a more desert like environment it would be more effective due to the nature of sand. However it wouldn't be so effective using it in an area like say, street or something since there really isn't loose rocks anywhere. Taking that into consideration, if you were to say, combine it with a fire jutsu to preheat the substance used to form the spikes, it would do more than just protrude their body. Cons is that probably because of the terrain, some preparation might be needed for a technique like this due to how it's used.

    I have a question. If you were to use something tougher than loose rocks, say broken Kaguya bones scattered around the place if that's possible, does that strengthen the technique due to the density being much higher?

    Re: earth blah

    Sorry, no. You can only go into B-rank and below jutsu; A-rank and higher would be like you in real life trying to walk through a stone wall. But a good con for that would be if you're one with the rock, and your opponent destroys the rock, you get destroyed.
    And you can't use Kaguya bones for doton techniques; Scarface once had a tournament to find a new senpai, and made the ground out of Kaguya bones just so people couldn't use doton. But as for the scale, I believe the height was about up to the waist... Or somewhere close to that. And the spears are super thin, in case that means anything to you. But this technique was used on a flat surface without much debris anywhere, so destroying the terrain isn't a must; I just said to build it up with loose stones because that's how the technique was used. The spears were constructed from the base to the tip, instead of the tip coming up and creating a wider and wider base.

    Now, I want you to perform the "tiger", "rat", and "snake" handseals while channeling doton chakra into my dome. *creates a generic dome* After that, I want you to use your chakra to create cracks in my dome, and then cause one stone near the top to fall out of place, collapsing the whole dome structure.

    Then, I want you to focus doton chakra into the ground, creating several small blocks of earth within the ground. Then cause the blocks of earth to rise out of the ground, and fly towards my clone. After that, use any fire style technique you want behind the stones, which will cause them to explode on contact with my clone.

    Description: The user performs the required hand seals Tiger → Rat → Snake and they then causes a cave-in by destroying the equilibrium that holds the cave together. Just removing a single vital stone throws off the balance of the cave, making it unexpectedly fragile and causing a domino effect that destroys the entire cave. The shinobi from Iwagakure use this technique in their pride tactic, luring several enemies into a cave to kill them all at once.

    Re: earth blah

    Okay, but if the substance of earth was different, say you're in a mine shaft where the rocks would clearly be more dense than something like sand, the strength would be somewhat different?


    Rock Lodging Destruction
    First I begin by performing the hand seals for the technique (insert hand seals here) while channeling my chakra into this rather boorish and generic dome. I mean look at it, it's like someone tried to create a nice smooth dome but failing in the most horrendous way possible. (i kid) Focusing this chakra into specific points of the dome, namely the top ceiling of it, I attempt to create small cracks in the dome's surface. These small cracks are miniscule, but considering the size of the dome they're merely used as a basis to create larger gaping holes in order for the technique to work. I fill these self-created cracks with more and more chakra, expanding it so the cracks widen into something like a crevice carved into the inside of the dome, which I then control to spread all over the thing. The lodging and structure of the dome's interior should be weakened considerably more now. I use chakra to dislodge nothing but a single rock from the structure, which in turn makes the entire dome cave in on itself, which should be enough to kill anyone inside of it.

    Pros is that proper usage of this technique gives you the respect of the Iwagakure Ninja. Again, the type of terrain should be taken into account here, a rough dome which is thin and weak with integral structure would be easier to use on than something made much cleaner and stronger, or even a naturally made cave. It can also be used as a means to break out of such structures, like Earth Dome of Magnificent Nothingness or whatever it's called (the one Jirobu used which sucks chakra) if you're quick enough to respond with another technique to properly escape. Cons is that it does take time to complete the technique, given the nature of only removing one rock to create a domino effect. You can also get caught in something like this and hurt yourself performing it.

    Molten Earth Wild Eruption
    Focusing chakra into the ground just below the surface so that it wouldn't be entirely visible to someone unless they had Dojutsu, I create small blocks of different shapes and sizes underground. Focusing even more, I shoot these blocks towards the clone at a rather fast pace. I then follow up with a quick fire jutsu, throwing shuriken while breathing out wild flames to coat these projectiles to blend in with the earthen projectiles from before. The heat protruded from the shuriken should be enough to heat the earth enough to give it lava-like qualities, which should explode on contact with the user covering them in a hot substance which can burn the skin.

    ( Kaen Shuriken Ranbu ) - Blazing Shuriken Dance
    Rank: D
    Type: Offensive
    Range: Short
    Chakra cost: 10
    Damage points: 20
    Description: The user will throw several shuriken at the enemy and then inflames them with fire to cause extra damage.


    I'm not entirely sure how the whole fire technique with it works. Does that mean you have to expend two techniques just to use this one technique? I'm also confused on how the fire technique causes these rocks to explode on contact...

    But anyway, pros is that it's a nice technique, you can bend and shape these projectiles into whatever you want, being able to hit your target at different angles. I'm assuming by the name of the technique it has some sort of lava quality to it considering what's used to use the technique, so the "explosion" I imagine would leave a bit of residue on them which can continue to burn and increase pain to them. It can also be used in conjunction with other fire techniques, blending in other abilities such as kunai, or just a big fireball which "chases" the earth and heats them up to the explosive state that way. It's also a Fire/Earth combo which is always nice. Cons include it being a combo technique, you'd probably need to expend two techniques for this one to work, like how other techniques work better with specific techniques. The multiple amount of projectiles also reduces the individual rank so something like say, a weak D-Rank Lightning technique which shoots out several small bolts could defend against this.

    Re: earth blah

    Well, it says "fire technique", so I assume it'll force you to use 2 moves (may want to check with a mod about that). As for how it explodes, I have no idea.

    That was great; you certainly know everything you need to, from what I've seen. Honestly, I want to simply allow you to use all these techniques without training, as you have shown great knowledge on each one thus far... However, that's why Kirabi isn't orange anymore.

    Speaking of not being orange, my sensei, Migualon J.J., has decided to resign as a sensei, meaning I will no longer be able to train you... This post is more of a showing that you have completed those two techniques properly, know how they work for your next teacher to know, and as a formal good-bye. I enjoyed teaching you, you were a very descriptive student, and I wish I had been able to make myself train you more so that you could master your elements quickly.

    My only regret is that I was not more active to post here... I'll talk to you later. :D
