Re: Future War Suggestions
well, to Haku and to Rexii I must point out somethings to both sides:
-Cannon wise, even a tenten bio has knowledge of fuin. Here weapon methods are fuin. And all bios in NB can use basic fuuin by taking a scroll and unsealing a weapon stored in it. That is fuuin. So, its not actually a "hidden" ability. It may be hard to grasp and master, yes, but its part of the ninjas basic knowledge much like e-Rank ninjutsu. Even an explosive tag is nothing more than an application of fuuin.
-FTG isn't exactly, 100% fuuin but rather a self summoning contract. You summon yourself to the tag you put in somewhere. The target is a seal basically because you have your chakra there and need it as a beacon to summon yourself into. When you summon an animal, you use your blood as the "connector" to the contract. Every summon has his blood on the contract as well. And the contract is nothing more than a big, elaborate application of fuuin. Minato does it with or better yet, through his individual chakra. Thus why its a seal. Its inner workings are a mix of both summoning and fuuin. So, saying its only one or the other isn't accurate.
As for the whole metagaming thing... Rexii you yourself fall under than same old "mistake". We all do at times. Its normal. Its an RP forum game. Example: I make you see butterflies. Ok... you immediately think its a gen and react to it and what not...Well, what if i was a bug user using butterflies? or they were my cannon contract? or they were papper tags transformed into butterflies to fool you? Yet, we alolow it to some degree. Its called adapting the manga to fit the RP and making it work.
Reborn, 2vs2 battles don't work because sadly 8 out of 10 roleplayers don't show the ability to conduct that type of battle without leading to an endless streak of arguments. Time frame becomes too easiy to mess with. Restrictions become a pain. And in essence the fight becomes a mayhem. But they won't be...forbidden. If both parties agree, then yes. But if they can't find an understanding, the simplest, more viable option will be enforced.
Guys, this type of free for all war and RP doesn't work. Simple. So it mus be conducted in a viable manner and forget a bit about the realism part of the cannon side of things. We can't say 30 ninjas attack at once a village vs 30 defenders. Nor 4 vs 10 nor any other number we might find reasonable. The RP is an interpretation and an application of Narutoverse. but we need to shape things to make them viable and work, otherwise it won't. It wouold be cool that we could fololow and make it work and such but we can't. So we need to shape it to fit our context and to fit our context things need to be editted to make it work. And that will make it so that fights will need to be as simple as possible and as much organization and guiidelines will be enforced as possible otherwise...nothing happens but flames ...
