    Doton - Obvious

    Let's get started sempai! Why? Because I want to learn Doton!
    As I said this, I was walking over to Kurapika-sempai on the training field he told me he would train me at.

    Re: Doton - Obvious

    I'm more of a sandpie, if I'm allowed to be judge of that. >.O
    Tell me now
    What is doton and what does it enable you to do?
    What's the difference between doton and raiton?
    How does doton interact with different elements?
    What are some useful and troublesome aspects of doton?

    If I spot any mistakes, I will correct them, but not necessarily in my next post. ^^

    Re: Doton - Obvious

    Then I will call thee Ahmed-sandpie from now on :3

    Doton or Earth Realease is one of the five elements a shinobi can manipulate. This element enables you to change the whole terrain into a huge hole, mountain or whatever landscape you have in mind (example: a terrain filled with spikes so that your opponent has to be careful of where he jumps/steps)
    This elemental release also gives you a large amount of possibilities to defend yourself since Doton, in my eyes, is mainly an element to be used either in order to defend yourself or to help you distracting your opponent or getting closer to him. (Example: the first Doton jutsu is very good since it can force your opponent to be knocked aside etc...)

    The difference between Doton and Raiton is very simple, yet very important. Earth Release is obviously weaker than Lightning Release. Both of the elements can be used to pierce your opponent (earth spikes and a lightning spear), but since Lightning Release has an overall higher piercen capacity than Earth Release's condensity, the lightning can pierce through earth.

    Doton is the only solid element out of all five and can thus be used as a solid shield to defend yourself from the other elements. However, since both Wind Release and Lightning Release have a high piercing/cutting capacity, they can cut through Doton.
    Fire Release and Water Release can be blocked by Doton. Since those two elements don't have that much of a piercing capacity, Doton is a good element to defend yourself against those two.

    I think I named a few useful and troublesome abilities already ^_^

    Ps: I got all this since Hard told me to read some fights before I actually started rp'ing

    Imma be correcting somethings later on, but for now we'll continue.
    What I'll be providing you with is an explanation on how to perform the technique, the name of the technique, and a wiki link if available.
    What I require of you is describing how you use the technique, and just a mention to anything interesting you find about it. Be it an advantage, disadvantage, a possible use, an error in its logic, anything!
    By the end of the first rank, I'll ask you to make a combo using one of the jutsu you've learnt, and to counter it using whatever. "You can use any jutsu in the jutsu list". After each rank the number of jutsu you learn per post will increase by one up to 3 jutsus per post.
    If you have any questions please ask ahead and we'll continue. ^^

    Re: Doton - Obvious

    I see. So when I have to make a counter I can use whatever element I want, even though I didn't learn it yet?
    I have no other question Ahmed-sandpie!

    Yes, even the combo can use whatever, but has to be based on a jutsu from the rank we're finishing.

    *Throws you a rock*
    Hold this rock while channeling your chakra into it. While doing so, close your eyes and focus on meditating. Clear your mind from anything but the thought of how to make the rock part of you. Remember any experience you've had with mud, sand or rocks. Once you get a goosebump-like sensation, imagine the rock becoming like clay, becoming obedient to your hands, taking whatever shape you mold it into. Once you can mold the rock in whichever way you want, make a kunai out if.

    As I catch the rock, I sit down with my legs crossed and close my eyes. As I do so I start channeling chakra into the rock that lays on both the palms of my hand. I start thinking of the earth, every step that I have taken on it, everytime I have fallen on it, everytime I hit the ground with my hands, ass, legs, feet or even head. I imagine the sea, large amounts of water while also maintaining the image of the rock. I then merge both of the images and the rock becomes liquid, no... It becomes clay like and I feel like I can shape it in any way I want. While this happens in my mind, my chakra actually does the same to the rock I am holding and it becomes kneadable. I then imagine the shape of a kunai and use my chakra to make the rock take the shape of the kunai.

    Nice! You've just manipulated the shape of the rock. Using this same concept, you perform:
    (Doton No Jutsu) - Earth Release Technique
    Rank: D
    Type: Attack/Defence
    Range: Short-Mid
    Chakra cost: 10
    Damage Points: 20
    Descripton: Creates small pillars of earth, small tools, and small shields of earth


    Our next jutsu can only be performed while underground, so channel your chakra into the ground to make it less coherent so its easier to dig into. Once you are under the ground, cover yourself in earth infused with your chakra. Increase the durability of the roof above you. I'll stand right on top of that area. What you'll do is pull me into the soft sand with ease then make it harden.

    Re: Doton - Obvious

    Once again I start channeling Doton chakra, but this time into the ground underneath me and you. I use all the gathered chakra to make the ground almost kneadable underground so that I can easily dig through it. Once he ground has entered that state, I start digging into the ground towards the position I last saw you at. While I am doing so, I keep sending chakra into the ground above me so that that once again becomes harder so you can't see where I am digging at all. Once I have reached your position I make a large amount of earth underneath you enter the same kneadable state so that I can easily pull you in it. I do so by grabbing your leg and pulling you downards, thanks to the fact I have something to pull at it is easier for me to quickly jump out of the ground and as I touch the surface, I make the ground harden rendering you unable to move.

    I think that an advantage of this move is the fact that you can dig into the ground and thus evade an attack while also attacking your opponent at the same time.
    A disadvantage is that the opponent can easily make the earth shake/turn into spikes/rise etc... in order to hurt or make you visible.

    A very common counter to this move is nagashi. I think a way of avoiding that possibility is using this jutsu with the intention of using a nagashi yourself. Simply, to use a nagashi right after you grab your opponent. This way, even if he uses a nagashi they cancel each other out and you still get to pull him down. Except you can't say the ground is hardened in this case.

    You've learnt:
    (Doton: Shinju Zanshu no Jutsu) - Earth Release: Double Suicide Decapitation Technique
    Rank: D
    Type: Supplementary
    Range: Short
    Chakra Cost: 10
    Damage Points: N/A
    Description: The user, emerging from the ground below the target area, pulls down the opponent so that only their head is above ground. Unable to move, the opponent can easily be decapitated or tortured.


    Next jutsu is pretty simple. Take a chunk of rock, channel your chakra into it, manipulate its shape to make a staff. You can throw the staff, make more staffs, play pool, you name it.
    http://naruto.wikia.com/wiki/Earth_R...k_Section_Cane
    It's a pretty simple jutsu, yes. >.>

    Re: Doton - Obvious

    I walk over to a rather large rock and grab a kunai in which I gather a rather large amount of chakra. The blade gets extended and sharper which allows me to cut of a chunk. As I get a hold of the chunk, I close my eyes and start sending Doton chakra into it. While doing so, I concentrate on the image of a staff. Once I have gathered enough chakra in the rock, I -once again- use it to change the hard rock into a kneadable substance. Using my chakra, I shape the substance into the staff I was picturing in my mind.

    This jutsu is very usefull in close combat since you can pretty much create a second weapon (going from the fact that you have a sword) and thus surprise your opponent. Now as for how I would do that, I would swing my sword downwards so that I would cleave the head of my opponent in halve. The latter would be forced to look up or look at the sword and I could create a staff in my other hand (which he wouldn't see) and pierce his heart/lung/neck with it.

    Nice. You've learnt:
    (Doton: Gansetsukon) - Earth Release: Rock Section Cane
    Rank: D
    Type: Supplementary/Offense
    Range: Short
    Chakra Cost: 10
    Damage Points: 20
    Description: This technique allows the user to take a small chunk of rock and turn it into the shape of a staff. The user can then use it as a melee weapon or throw it with pinpoint accuracy at their opponent. A variation of this technique allows the user to create several staffs and launch them at the target, but with less accuracy.

    Next, channel your chakra into your arms. Utilize your doton chakra around them in order to 'create' two rings of rock around them. I like to explain the 'creating' by gathering dust particles, but that's just me. Once you create the rings, you can through them at your opponent. This jutsu is called Rock Barrage.

    Re: Doton - Obvious

    I concentrate and start sending my Doton chakra in the air around me and in the top layer of the ground. Using the gathered chakra, I make lots of dust particles fly towards my arms and make them form rings around them. As the rings are formed, I use the chakra in the particles to shoot them towards a tree. The rings would hit the tree and rip parts of it trunk of.

    I guess this jursu can be useful when your opponent launches some weapons at you. The rings would deflect the weapons and continue towards the opponent.

    ( Doton: Iwa Rendan ) - Earth Release: Rock Barrage
    Rank: D
    Type: Offensive
    Range: Short – Mid
    Chakra cost: 10
    Damage points: 20
    Description: The user will concentrate their chakra into their arm and then release their chakra creating a ring of rocks that are then flung at the opponent.


    From now on, I'll be posting jutsu before you perform it instead of after. We've also advanced a rank, so we'll be learning two jutsus per post for some time before we start doing three.


    (Doton: Ganban Kyu) - Earth Release: Bedrock Coffin
    Rank: C
    Type: Offense
    Range: Mid/Long
    Chakra Cost: 15
    Damage Points: 30
    Description: After performing the Rat hand seal, the user to control multiple sections of rock and move them around their opponent. The user then forms two gigantic sections that crush the opponent.
    Channel your doton chakra the ground as you perform the rat handseal. Use your chakra to take control of multiple sections of rock and make them rise around your opponent. Then form two gigantic sections (from the ones already made, I think) And make them crush your opponent.
    A good jutsu for attacking your opponent while also creating a line of sight breaker.
    http://naruto.wikia.com/wiki/Earth_R...Bedrock_Coffin




    (Doton: Moguragakure no Jutsu) – Earth Release: Hiding like a mole technique
    Rank: C
    Type: Supplementary
    Range: Long
    Chakra cost: 15
    Damage points: N/A
    Description: The user changes earth into fine sand by channeling chakra into it, allowing the user to dig through it like a mole. While underground one can sense what is happening on the surface and use the information to launch a surprise attack on the enemy. Once can also hide deep in the ground, escaping to a depth where the enemy cant reach. It also appears that after digging, the ground can be returned to its original state, leaving no trace of where the user entered the earth.
    One of the best doton jutsu ever if you ask me. You can hide from your opponent while being able to move around and also being able to sense what goes on the surface. Because you dig space instead of merging with the ground, you can dig up enough space to sneak someone with you (Eg; a clone). Keep in mind, once you're in a cavity you've dug, you can't use another jutsu then go back to digging. If you do, you'll have to reuse this jutsu, this is because you channel your doton chakra into the ground to soften it to ease the digging. Also, keep in mind that if you use offensive techniques, you're likely to cause the roof to fall over you.
    Channel your chakra into the ground and manipulate its coherence to make it soft and smooth. As you dip your hands into it, it will show little to resistance, so dig in and crawl into the gap you make. Keep channeling your chakra up so you can feel everything that is standing on the floor.

    Re: Doton - Obvious

    Well, done so far. However, I'm afraid I'm no longer a senpai. Best of luck in your roleplaying journey. ^^
    It has been an honor.
