    Very well then. Let's start with the usual. Using your own words, tell me everything you know about the terms ninja, chakra and ninjutsu. Don't peek and don't copy paste. Use your own words so I can determine the level of knowledge you already have. I'll be correcting your mistakes and leading you on the right path so don't be afraid to be wrong because it's better than saying nothing.

    The term ninja means to endure to achieve the impossible dream.....

    Chakra is a form of life energy which consists of all leaving being. All living being produces chakra and also use it to some extent for daily activities. the chakra network is connected to every organ in the body where chakra is produced.

    There are mainly two kind of energy mainly used for chakra based ninjutsu. Mental and Physical energy. Although for Senjutsu nature energy is used and combined with Physical and Mental energy to create Sage mode..

    Nice. Nobody has mentioned those yet. That's very correct. Every organ is connected to your chakra network and every organ has a specific function within it, other than just doing what they're designed for. However, that's entering the fields of medical school and you would need medical training to understand those concepts.

    Also correct, senjutsu is indeed mixed in a ratio between your life energies. It requires very delicate control and precision, thus why it's so hard to obtain and not everyone can do it. Now, I have a bit more elaborate explanations for those terms and I'd like you to remember them. They won't necessarily help you when you fight, but it's always good to know.

    Ninja

    A ninja is someone who uses their full abilities in the service of his/hers beliefs, working to achieve a goal. This goal can be anything from peace to war, money, destruction, personal griefs or even revenge and can be shared with others or individual. Most ninjas are fighters and correspond to the bulk of the military force of the great nations. However, a ninja doesn't need to be a fighter. Even medics or a simple carpenter may, in times of need, use his abilities (medical knowledge or abilities in working with wood for example) to accomplish the goals he set to himself, following his beliefs.

    Chakra

    Chakra is the energy that is formed through the passive combination of both the Physical and the Spiritual energies in a sentient being (every living being with a conscious mind has chakra). Physical energy corresponds to the vitality of the body and its own energy. Spiritual energy corresponds to the mind or spirit, and comes from the awareness and "soul" of each sentient being.

    Some ninjas have high levels of chakra because they have great physical energy (like the Akimichi or even Tsunade) and others because of their spiritual energy (like the Uchiha and the Yamanaka). However, its much more difficult to increase the spiritual energy than the physical one, thus why all ninjas pass through intensive physical workout.

    Yin and Yang are based on this same concept. Yin is the basis of the spirit while Yang the basis of the body. In this i won't go into more dept because there are 2 things to consider: Yin/Yang manipulation in our RP is different from the manga one and both are more or less inacessible.

    Chakra flows in a circulatory system inside your body, in a way that much resembles the blood circulation. This circulatory system has 8 small reservoirs that act as both storage but also chakra regulation. These are the eight inner gates. Along your circulatory system, small "portals" exist that enable you to expell chakra from your body. These are called Tenketsu and there are 361 of them scattered allong the body. When a tenketsu opens, chakra poors out of it. Its by molding the chakra that comes out of the tenketsu that you produce ninjutsu and genjutsu.

    Ninjutsu

    Ninjutsu, or Ninja Arts, is the ability to, through the use of chakra, accomplish tasks that would be otherwise impossible to do. Ninjutsu are done by 2 stepts: focusing your chakra and molding your chakra. Focusing is using your will power to "will" a portion of your chakra to do something. On the other hand, molding is giving your chakra a set of characteristics that will enable you to produce the desired end effect.

    Think of the chakra flow as our breathing. Normally, it happens passively, without any conscious intervention. However, when you need to you can use your will to control it. Its the same with your chakra flow. Its happens normally without your consicious intervention. However, you can focus your chakra and make it produce something.

    Now, molding the chakra is done by two basic principles: Shape Manipulation and Nature Transformation. These correspond to the two broad areas that one needs to change in the chakra to produce a jutsu. Shape manipulation pertains to the ability to give your chakra a desired form while Nature transformation pertains to the ability to give your chakra a desired set of characteristics/properties. Sometimes, to better mold chakra, ninja use Handseals. Handseals are simply hand gestures that allow the ninja to more easily concentrate and mold the chakra into the desired technique.

    Don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions. I'm here to help.

    Re: [New Era] Water with Kuuybi

    Sensei i have a questions mentioned below.

    Reg: Chakra

    you said there are 8 small reservoirs that act as both storage but also chakra regulation and also said there are 361 Tenketsu scattered along the body. So my question is, this mentioned 361 Tenketsu are scattered within the 8 inner gates or the whole body along with 8 inner gates?

    The tenketsu are scattered throughout the whole body while the gates are centered within your body. They are all connected together and you use those "storages" to "collect" chakra and have it surge through your body. This is a pretty accurate picture of your tenketsu.


    And this is along the lines of what the "storages" look like.

    Re: [New Era] Water with Kuuybi

    There are five basic types into which the nature of chakra can be transformed, called the Five Elements Nature Transformations. These five types are also called elements and are not only the origin of the names of the Five Great Shinobi Countries, but also the foundation of all elemental ninjutsu.The five basic natures are all connected to each other in a circle, each being weaker than one and stronger than another.

    These elements allow for elemental ninjutsu to be performed:

    Fire natured chakra allows for Fire Release: Katon, which is strong against Wind but weak against Water.

    Wind natured chakra allows for Wind Release: Futon, which is strong against Lightning but weak against Fire.

    Lightning natured chakra allows for Lightning Release: Raiton, which is strong against Earth but weak against Wind.

    Earth natured chakra allows for Earth Release: Doton, which is strong against Water but weak against Lightning.

    Water natured chakra allows for Water Release: Suiton, which is strong against Fire but weak against Earth.


    There are other Special types called Kekkei Genkai meaning Bloodline Limits and Kekkei Touta meaning Bloodline Expansion.

    Kekkei Genkai: Is a limit passed down by clan. Something unique. It is created by combining 2 basic nature types and creating a new one. EX- Mokuton, Ranton, Shakton, Youton, Houton, Shouton, Bakton etc.

    Kekkei Touta: Is a very rare ability. This ninjutsu is the combination of 3 nature elements.. Called Jinton.
    There are only 2 users known.....

    Nice, very good. You got the very basics and you will have to know the relations even if you are waken up at 3AM with a cold bucket of water. What I mean is, you will use those advantages and disadvantages in every battle thus why they are so important. Now that you covered the relations I'll put some more characteristics about the basic elements and why they relate to the elements in the way they do.

    As you already said there are basic 5 elements and they can be arranged into a circle, corresponding to their strengths and weaknesses. Those elements are Water > Fire > Wind > Lightning > Earth. Each of these is a natural occurrence in our world and through intensive studying and practicing we became able to manipulate and even create them. In the manga and anime you see regular ninja with one or two elements as their main traits but for the purpose of our RP, it's allowed to have all five. Each element has it's own characteristics and there are strong facts as to why some elements are stronger/weaker than other.

    Fire is a dangerous element, capable of burning stuff in the matter of seconds. It's a very violent element because of its destructive power. It's main trait is heat, which is the cause to melting and incineration. It's important for you to notice that fire requires oxygen to burn. Since oxygen is a part of the air we breathe, no air would mean no oxygen. The counterpart would be more air resulting in more oxygen and a stronger fire. However, there are a few scenarios for this and I believe your teacher will explain these to you in your training. It's weak to water because it's easily extinguished but it's strong against wind because it "eats" the air and the oxygen. It's neutral against lightning and since none are solids they pass through each other. Fire with earth is a good combination because it can harden mud or turn regular earth into lava.

    Wind is the most versatile element in our universe because it's everywhere around us. Again, air is not a solid but using our chakra we can condense it into sharp projectiles, blades and such. One of its components is oxygen which makes the fire burn. The interesting thing here is the amount of wind (air) you put up to the fire. With a small amount you make the fire burn stronger and spread faster while with a huge amount of air you will put the fire out. Because it contains oxygen it is, unfortunately, weak to fire while being a natural insulator it's strong against lightning, capable of dispersing it and preventing its spreading. As mentioned it's a good combination with water because, for example, it gives a water projectile more thrust power and it speeds it up. This is also applicable to various ninja tools, so keep that in mind. Regarding earth, they're neutral but there can be some interesting usages. For example, picking up dust from the ground, small rocks or even making giants patches of earth float above the ground, and such.

    Lightning is, again, a very violent and sharp element, capable of paralyzing and burning our opponents. It is considered to be the fastest of the basic elements. It's generated by its molecules being forced to move at a great velocity which causes it to be unstable to a degree. Lightning is weak against wind, as I already said, because wind is a natural insulator while it's very strong against earth, being capable of destroying it and crumbling into pieces. It's a very good combination with water because it electrocutes it, while it's neutral to fire because of reasons I already mentioned.

    Earth is once again a versatile element because we walk on it. Mostly everywhere you walk, you will be able to use earth techniques, which gives a great advantage against water users when battling without nearby water sources. It is a solid element with great crushing and piercing characteristics. It has a tremendous amount of applications thus why it has the most techniques. It's projectiles possess a great force because of their mass and it's proportional to the increase of acceleration. It's simple logic. The faster you throw a rock the more it will hurt, lol. Earths' main weakness is lightning as mentioned above, while it's strong against water because it can split water waves, redirect them, push them back, etc. Mass is the key. It's a great combination with fire because, as mentioned, it turns it into lava or in case you have mud, it hardens it. And as I already said, it has it's unique applications in conjunction with wind.

    Now to the element of choice for this training session. Water is a liquid element and can be found anywhere in our world. I won't go into specific numbers but you're aware that a lot of stuff is made of water or has water in it. This makes it a very versatile element, the second most versatile actually. Water is strong against fire because of its extinguishing power, but it's weak against earth because it can't break it down and it only makes it wet. Note however that in some cases water turns earth to mud which can be useful but also a double egde. Regarding the other two elements, water is very good in combination with both. Lightning electrocutes the water while wind gives it more force and makes it generally stronger.

    Any questions?

    Haha, good one. Let's proceed then.

    Before we manage to jump onto the very techniques, there's a few more things we have to cover. Battlefield usages and to activate your water chakra.

    For now let's focus solely on water and leave everything else behind. Even with everything I said, there is still so much about water that makes it what it is: a versatile and smart element. The main thing with water is understanding how it acts on its own accord, water will not merely cease to exist once a technique is over and it has a lasting effect on the terrain, regardless of where you are fighting. This is something that must be used to your advantage. One of the only situations where water will leave the battlefield is when it's evaporated by a much stronger fire technique. Other than that, it will always scatter around and lose its form and purpose but that doesn't mean you can't re-use it as a water source.

    Another interesting thing about water is the ability to actually fight all elements without simply overpowering them. The way it moves and its liquid form must all be taken into account when using it. Although water is naturally weak to earth, it doesn't mean that a water technique can't be used against earth regardless of rank. For example, if the opponent uses a wave of earth and dirt that comes at you, you can spit great amounts of water at high pressure to act as a lift off in order to raise yourself out of the trajectory of the earth. Regardless of the rank, you didn't use the water to overpower or even fight the earth technique. You simply used it to alter your position. That is another way in which the lasting effects of water will benefit you. Water techniques continue to work through the area around you whilst you build your next techniques, as long as there is water there is a danger and a sense of unknowing in the opponent.

    Let's start with something simple but something that a lot of people pass on learning, understanding how water effects different terrain. I'd like you to state the terrain/environmental factors in each of the major nations (suna, konoha, kiri, kumo, ame and iwa), not just the surface of the ground, but the air around you as well. Then I'd like you to state how Water effects each of the landscapes.

    Water - Chemical Sig: H20 It gives Life also Takes life away... No one can Survive with out any water..

    Konohagakure (Hidden Leaf): Also Known as Fire Country. This Village is like a tropical forest.....High Humidity, Moisture in the Air, Perfect for Katon users. But it also has a lot of lakes, streams there is also a huge river in konoha name Naka river and konoha's main water source.

    Sunagakure (Hidden Sand): Also Known as Wind Country. The Sunagakurae is mostly comprised of desert. The air in suna is full of minute sand particles and dust. The air has no moisture or humidity. Suna has the very least water resource. Water ninjutsu that requires a water resource would be very hard to perform unless one possesses huge amount of chakra. Since sand instantly absorbs water, water jutsu's are almost useless in suna. But it also can back fire on sand users.

    Kirigakurae (Hidden Mist): Also know as Water Country. Kiri have excellent water resource. Kiri is a huge island in the middle of the ocean. The air has almost 100% Humidity and huge amount of moisture. Kiri is a excellent place for powerful water techniques which needs a very large water source.

    Amegakure (Hidden Rain): This village has a huge advantage for water based ninjutsu as it almost rains most of the time..the rain water can be used for water techniques. The air is full of Moisture. The border is also surrounded by seas. Perfect place for water based ninjutsu.

    Kumogakurae Hidden Cloud: Also known as Land of Lightning. The kumo contains a good source of water but the terrain is mostly comprised of Mountains. Hence powerful water techniques will be not be hard to perform. The air is chilling. Also the ocean covers the kumo boundary from three sides.

    Iwagakurae (Hidden Rock): Also known as Land of Earth. Iwa has a very rocky terrain which favors earth users. The air is Dry. It covered with rocky mountains and high terrains. It's almost similar to Suna when it comes to water.

    Yes, all are correct. However, AMegakure is actually surrounded by lakes not seas. Since it's in the heart of the continent it doesn't really have any sea nearby. Here's a good map. And here are my additions to your descriptions.


    Due to the high temperatures and the deserts, Sunagakure is a very arid place. So it will be harder to materialize water out of nowhere. However, due to the huge amount of sand it can be useful in a combination with your water attacks. Water jutsu in this terrain form wet sand; a heavy and relatively dense substance than can be used in conjunction with your earth jutsu. Explain your moves right and you can have earth jutsu which blind your opponent as the wet sand not only inflicts blunt damage but it breaks up on impact and can affect other senses. When sand is infused with water whilst in the air, the water becomes thicker and more damaging, the water also spreads the sand on impact again look to aim for the opponents senses.

    Konoha and Kumogakure are somewhat similar. Konoha is mainly a huge forest while Kumogakure has forests but it revolves mostly on mountains. The water in these areas seeps into the earth and sets the grass and dirt, forming mud. Mud is usually slippery and can assist you against certain people extremely well. Water possesses an often over looked level of brute strength, a large amount of water can easily knock over and drag along a human being, flood/ tidal waves are actually the most catastrophic of the commonly occurring natural disasters. You can use this strength to push your opponent against trees or into traps that you laid earlier.

    Kirigakure (and Amegakure) are mostly on water. Kirigakure is a complex of islands scattered around a huge sea while Amegakure is surrounded by lakes. Also, the heavy rain can also assist you here. Kirigakure being sea, obviously this gives you means to use your most powerful water techniques instantly as you have an already developed water source. Something that people tend to forget about water however is that although they don't all require a water source, they can all use one. There are a few techniques which state that the user begins by creating a water source, if you have a water source already, you can skip through this part of the technique, allowing youth utilise the jutsu quicker, starting from the second stage of the technique. Even if water jutsu don't state this, they will always happen quicker if used from a source.

    True, it's similar to Sunagakure and there's not much water sources because it's a barren rocky landscape. However, the main difference is that the water won't drain so quickly. If the rocks are not vaporous then the water will always stay on the surface in the forms of puddles which you can then further use to your advantage. Remember also, rocks are loose pieces of the environment and can be picked up by water techniques to cut and pierce, thus adding damage to what would normally merely be blunt. In this same vein, water can carry Kunai, essentially hiding them inside streams as you spit. Questions?

    I hope you can also use the map well. So, this brings us very close to the actual beginning. To be able to perform water techniques first you need to be able to mold water chakra. For this you will have to enter that lake over there up to neck deep and focus and concentrate. Clear your mind, think of water and let it flow. Once you think you're ready come out and dry out and we'll see if you're successful.

    Re: [New Era] Water with Kuuybi

    I enter the lake at neck dept make a hand-sing of praying. I absolutely empty my mind, try to be one with the flow of the water. I can feel the nature and the flow of water. I can see the Characteristics of water inside my soul. I come out dry myself. I think I am ready now. Yes I am one with the water right now!

    Alrighty then. Let's see if it works. Take this chakra paper and put it in between your hands and then do the same again, this time channeling the water chakra into your hands.

    I take the chakra paper between my hands. I start to concentrate on my chakra, let it flow to my hands... After concentrating for a while i feel dampness in between my hand. I open my hands to see the Chakra paper you gave getting all wet....

    Sorry, that's not it. You're missing a key concept. Read this paragraph and then try again.

    Ninjutsu

    Ninjutsu, or Ninja Arts, is the ability to, through the use of chakra, accomplish tasks that would be otherwise impossible to do. Ninjutsu are done by 2 stepts: focusing your chakra and molding your chakra. Focusing is using your will power to "will" a portion of your chakra to do something. On the other hand, molding is giving your chakra a set of characteristics that will enable you to produce the desired end effect.

    Think of the chakra flow as our breathing. Normally, it happens passively, without any conscious intervention. However, when you need to you can use your will to control it. Its the same with your chakra flow. Its happens normally without your consicious intervention. However, you can focus your chakra and make it produce something.

    Now, molding the chakra is done by two basic principles: Shape Manipulation and Nature Transformation. These correspond to the two broad areas that one needs to change in the chakra to produce a jutsu. Shape manipulation pertains to the ability to give your chakra a desired form while Nature transformation pertains to the ability to give your chakra a desired set of characteristics/properties. Sometimes, to better mold chakra, ninja use Handseals. Handseals are simply hand gestures that allow the ninja to more easily concentrate and mold the chakra into the desired technique.

    Alright, that's better but you could've been more descriptive. After all you're on a text based role playing site and what you write is what others read. The more description the better your moves will be. However, remember to know what you're talking about and not just making a huge paragraph compiled with unrelated words. Here's how I would do it, except that I'm performing a small water bullet. But it describes the picture.

    I start slowing down my breathing, clearing my mind and focusing on the next technique I'm about to perform. I start stirring up my chakra through my circulatory system and I have it flow steadily, mimicking real water and its properties. As I do so, I start gathering it in my solar plexus, the main center, and I have it grow and accumulate. Through the process I perform several handseals as a hoax to cut down on the molding time and to mold more chakra for a stronger technique. Upon gathering the necessary amount, I forcefully push the chakra from my plexus towards my mouth and as I release it I shape it into a half-human sized water bullet that quickly races towards the nearby tree and cuts it loose at the point of collision.

    Alright then, let's proceed. Next step before the techniques is the shape manipulation. Now that you can nature manipulate or mold your chakra in order to gather water chakra you need to be able to shape manipulate it in order to create objects made of water. Shape manipulation is what helps you here. Once you gather a fair amount of water chakra, you imagine the object you want and once you start releasing the chakra from your body you shape manipulate it into the desired object. How about you try and spit a small water bullet? Aim it at the nearby tree.
