Sengoku Horizon

Look towards the Horizon

The Warring States Period: Fierce warlords fought for control of Japan, and many would perish. When a warrior falls, where does the passion they once held go? Possibly into something dear such as a favorite weapon or heirloom. These heirlooms have been labeled as “relics”, and those that carry them are labeled as “Scions." Recently more and more of these special relics have been activating, signaling the start of a great change as ancient power meets the modern world!

Now For The Local News, 11/01/2017 The dust has cleared after a fierce clash against the rebel Ikko Ikki monks. Now, as a tense period of calm spread over the island nation of Japan the students of Edo Bugei must figure out how to proceed in life after experience such intense conflicts and such deep loss.

Student artisans are becoming more common, yet aren't being used to a full enough potential. This could be due in part to no solid way to know who is making things for other students IC. There should be a shop listing somewhere that can allow other students to seek, find, and negotiate prices for goods that can be produced.

A list would include Account name, Student name, General crafting type (Blacksmith, Medical Artisan, etc), and then a specific specialization such as Blades, guns, armor, artistic, etc. Then pricing either a number in credits or simply the word 'negotiable' if they wish to deal with money payments IC.

Kitsu had solidified most of his foothold as the primary gang in Eastern Edo. The Iga Revival clan symbol was everywhere and it was beautiful. However, he heard word that the Yakuza had agents in the area still. His own people were mainly lounging for the day, with the holidays close, and weren't on their normal patrols. Kitsu was on his own in the hustling bustling city streets of East Edo, the place he's calling home for his gang leader adventures.

He strolled casually down the street, pondering his next moves by deciding if he should attack a nearby group or not. It was the holidays, and it would be rude to interrupt celebrations and the like for what is usually a violent encounter. He thought almost fondly about the two skulls in his makeshift office, and how he'd love to add more to it to demonstrate his ability. The first was King, Yakuza lord turned terrorist. Extorting civilians with games of 'chance', protection rackets, and other techniques for getting money out of the populous was one thing, but when you openly murder civilians with no reason but to do it you get put on everyone's radar. Especially an aspiring gang leader who was justified to kill him by order of the shogunate as a cover.

The other skull just so happen to be King's brother, Daito. He was for some reason attacking East Edo durring the Ikko invasion, possibly to gain the territory as his own after the enemy won. Kitsu remembered it pretty clearly, he had arrived to the fight after 3 others had already tried to fight him. It only took 2 attacks and Kitsu finished him off, took his head, and had it sent back to his office for decoration. He smiled warmly as he remembered his recent and few triumphs, not paying attention to where he was walking for the most part.

<br><br>
WEAPON: Six ornate Philadelphia Deringer pistols. They are one shot percussion cap guns. They are gold and silver plated and held in a harness under his overcoat and above his vest. 3 on one side, 3 on the other, designed to be cross drawn (Left guns drawn by right hand, vice versa). Due to the percussion cap, these guns are not re-loadable in thread.
<br>RELIC: Odd scroll locked inside of an iron scroll container.
<br>RELIC OWNER: Katō Danzō
<br>OWNER HISTORY: A prominent ninja master who's history is surrounded by mystery. He was rumored to have been trained in sorcery and was supposedly able to fly. (Thus the nickname Flying Kato). He was tasked by Usegi, Kenshin with stealing a sword from a retainer of Kenshin's, and not only stole the sword, but also captured a servant girl as well. After a series of events, Kenshin and his rival Takeda, Shingen eventually thought he was acting as a double agent. He was captured and beheaded.
<br>ACTIVATED ABILITY 1: River of Steel - Can produce metal filings by opening a small latch on the end of the case. Magnetic filings will fall out of the case at one cubic foot per post, lasts up to 5 posts or until closed.
<br>ACTIVATED ABILITY 2: Superheat - Can heat up metal that is under his magnetic control. The metal becomes red hot for 2 posts. Enemy relics, armor, and weapons are invalid targets for this ability. Already launched projectiles are valid.
<br>LOCKED ACTIVATED ABILITY 3: No Medic Required - Able to use the iron in his blood to create a patch to stop even the most traumatic bleeding. Likewise can use the iron in another person's blood to stop their bleeding (must be able to touch them). This patch stays even after the ability is finished, and patches must be removed manually, else they stay in place.
<br>PASSIVE 1: Magnetic Personality - Possess an extremely strong magnetic field around him. Can manipulate any naturally magnetic object around him, up to 15 feet away. The weight and density of the object effects the ability to manipulate it, meaning he can't float, bend, or move around a 400 pound object with as much ease or as swift as a soda can. Enemy Relics, armor, and weapons are an invalid targets for this ability. Already launched projectiles are valid.
<br>LOCKED PASSIVE 2: Metal Manipulation - Can solidify metal (including liquid metals and metal filings (particles)) into various weapons and shapes. Likewise any material solidified in this way can be turned back into it's original source material.
<br>LOCKED AWAKENED MODE COLOR: Silver
<br>LOCKED
<br> AWAKENED ATTACK: Ocean of Metal - For 5 posts prior to the actual attack, metal shavings loosen from surrounding sources (including magnetic metal sources in the ground, buildings, etc.) They remain in place, but are in a loosened state ready for stage two. In stage two, his magnetic aura extends to an incredible distance and increases in power. All of the metal filings that had been loosened surge towards Koi. This causes sinkholes to form in the ground, and localized collapsing of buildings. He then has 3 posts to act upon the sea of metal in any way that his normal abilities allow him to, but with the increased range and power of his magnetic force. Enemy Relics, armor, and weapons are not valid targets for this ability.</div>

<CENTER><b>HISTORY</b></CENTER><br>
<br>FAMILY: (If you have faceclaims in mind please note them.)
<br>• Imaizumi, Amur
<br>• Imaizumi, Iwame
<br>

<br>BACKGROUND:
Koi grew up in the mines of the Matsuda clan, though is not part of their clan. He was born to a family who owned several mines on behalf of the Matsuda clan, and were considered almost like family to the Matsuda. They mined everything from precious gems to coal across the province, and even though the Matsuda clan got the primary amount of money that was generated by the mines, his family was quite well off, enough to buy jewelry, nice clothing, and other wealthy family doo-dads and knick-knacks.
<br><br>
While growing up, he was known for exploring the various caves and mines around his city. Those who saw him swiftly and easily making his way through piles of rubble and unstable grounds would describe it 'as if he were swimming through the mountain', along with his name, Koi, he became known quickly as the Iron Fish by miners in the area, and soon by his family. He soon fell ill, and had to slow down just a bit, exploring just as swiftly, though in smaller bursts.
<br><br>
As he grew older, his skin turned a silvery color, and a Matsuda doctor finally diagnosed him with Hemochromatitis, an overabundance of iron in his blood. Small metal flecks began to stick to him, seemingly by magnetic means as his relic powers awakened. He was shortly after floating soda cans, forks, and other pieces of metal around him with ease, also finding that with some focus he could bend them and change their shapes into interesting works art. He boiled down several sets of forks, which his mother scolded him for, and used his powers to move the softened metal around and mold it into a sculpture, crude as it was.
<br><br>
Soon his powers were well under control, effortlessly creating works of art, weapons, anything he wanted really. This gained the attention of the Bugei Academy, who extended a welcome to him and soon took him from his family and mines that he loved so much. He continued to make things with his metal editing abilities while waiting for his first year to begin, and one day in the blacksmithing club's area, he overheard a conversation that the Shogunate was planning on taking private mines away from people to use for their own financial gain, this set him on his political track, taking an active stance that mines will remain in the family's hands. So begins his first year.

<CENTER><b>TRAITS</b></CENTER><br>
Byoki tries desperately to make friends, but sometimes ends up attacking them. He has been sent on a few missions, and usually is sent in as a distraction, playing the part of the poor lost kid and unleashing his powers, allowing others to fulfill the mission. He is described as creepy and unsettling, but most of the time friendly. He is often seen with his ultra muscular ward Doctor, Dr. Sheamus, routinely seen blindfolding and bearhuging the poor insane child to carry him off or calm him down. He is aware of other's opinion of him and uses it as an advantage in stealth, combat, and social situations.
<br><br>
<br>STRENGTHS: Intimidating and unsettling to enemies, extreme pain tolerance, experienced hand to hand combat skills, agile (fast speed in combat), desensitized to violence, can be very stealthy and quiet.
<br>WEAKNESSES: Albino: Sensitive to bright light, easily sun-burnt and blinded by the sun. Insanity: "random" outbursts, violence, etc. Unpredictable behavior and speech patterns. (Caused by triggers that cause him to go through flashbacks of his past), intimidating and unsettling to allies. Kleptomaniac: Steals things and sometimes isn't aware of it.
<br>LIKES: The city, polite people, patient people, psych doctors.
<br>DISLIKES: People being mean to him, anything that reminds him of his past (Forests, couples, parental figures, see background for more)
<br>AMBITIONS: Unknown.

<CENTER><b>COMBAT</b></CENTER><br>
<br><br>
WEAPON:
<br>RELIC: A ring taken from his deceased mother.
<br>RELIC OWNER: Arai Hakuseki
<br>OWNER HISTORY: March 24, 1657 – June 29, 1725. Known as Hi no Ko, due to his hot temper and his brow resembling the kanji for fire when he was angered or irritated.
<br>ACTIVATED ABILITY 1: Paranoia Hallucinations - Upon activation, anyone in a 3 foot radius beings to feel extremely paranoid, and can even see or hear things that aren't there. These Hallucinations are minor such as hearing their name whispered at them, seeing things move out of the corner of their eye, etc. Lasts up to 5 posts.
<br>ACTIVATED ABILITY 2: Again: Byoki causes the target(s) to relive the pain and suffering of the worst wound the target(s) has/have ever received. Realistic to the point of being able to 'see' the wound and feel the pain and effects of it. Lasts for 3 posts then suddenly stops.
<br>LOCKED ACTIVATED ABILITY 3:
<br>PASSIVE 1: People who make eye contact with him find themselves having a difficult time breaking the eye contact, almost mesmerized by his gaze and unable to look away. The causes extreme fear and disorientation.
<br>LOCKED PASSIVE 2: When someone has locked eye contact due to Passive 1 for more than one post, his eyes glow blue as if on fire from a paranormal source that only the affected person (people) can see. The person or people locked in eye contact this long begins to suffer from violent emotional swings. Lasts as long as there is eye contact, getting worse as time goes on.
<br>LOCKED AWAKENED MODE COLOR: None/Clear
<br>LOCKED
<br> AWAKENED ATTACK: Suffer: Byoki subjects the target's mind to torture. He causes them to feel and see wounds and extreme body damage such as missing limbs or worse.

<div class="content3">
<CENTER><b>HISTORY</b></CENTER><br>
<br>FAMILY: (If you have faceclaims in mind please note them.)
<br>• Father: Unknown - Deceased
<br>• Mother: Unknown - Deceased
<br>• Caretaker: Dr. Sheamus
<br>

<br>BACKGROUND:
Byōki grew up. That is the only thing that can be said for certain by anyone who met him or knew of his existence. If you could see through time and space, you would see a young albino child growing up in a violent household. Born to a woman and a man, and considered a curse upon them by his father. He was never given a name, and was only taught to speak by his mother and from the streets that he often wandered in his nameless town.

His father became a drunk after disgracing himself as a samurai, failing to protect someone he was hired by. Taking the title of ronin, he took to the same streets his curse of a son did, though ending up in a gutter more often than not. The beatings got worse, and it became a joyful time when Byoki's father was not home, and his loving mother would embrace him, and sing lullabies through the night, whispering how she appreciated him, the nameless son.

One night, Byoki's father returned home. Drunk. Angry. Violent. Beating the child within an inch of his life, finally giving him a name. Byoki, Sickness. His mother in a fit of self defense, used a butcher knife to stab the poor child's father repeatedly. He was still alive, and with a meat cleaver, she removed his fingers, hands, and started working on his arms before realizing he had perished. She dropped the cleaver, horrified at her deed, and took her son on the run, eventually ending up in a forest at the base of Mt. Fuji, Aokigahara, The Sea of Trees.

A distraught mother desperate for release from the terrible life she was living. Two ropes and a common location. She and her son were to leave the world behind in the branches of the forest of Aokigahara. By luck, or some higher purpose, one rope snapped, leaving a distraught Byoki behind in the world, as she passed into the gates of the afterlife alone. Her body was the last thing he remembered of her, and it haunts his thousand yard stare to this day. He stayed in that area, living the best he could off of stealing food from the neighboring picnic areas, as well as drinking from a natural spring he found.

He came to the academy under the guidance of a special council whom Byoki knew none of, nor could remember the names of. This special council allowed him access to the academy to undergo therapy as well as to hone his abilities into something useful. He is closely watched, and contained if his powers lose control, blindfolded and placed in a straight jacket, he is usually carried off to a place on the campus unknown to the rest of the students, re-purposed for his exclusive use. His room, his cell, his isolation chamber. In there, he waits to return to the world again.

I would like to have a monthly, or maybe twice a month depending on how fast it goes, contest based around character creativity. A song will be selected, any song at all, and a character must be created themed to the song. The character will be judged on creativity as well as viability, meaning the character must not break any forum rules or be over powered in excess, and finally in how well it fits the theme of the song presented for the contest. Winner will get a certain amount of points assigned by the staff.

This will exercise our user base's creativity in character design, as well as push them into areas that they may not be aware of in terms of character design for future characters, bringing possibly more interesting and complex designs to the forum at some point. Plus, character design is fun!
