Re: [RP Tournament Round 2] Leaf vs. Mathias
Upon seeing the individual release a vast amount of fire from his mouth, Mathias smirked as he prepared a very unorthodox counter. He swiftly performed the "Boar → Tiger" hand seals as he channeled his earth chakra into the ground. Suddenly, a vast majority of the battlefield turned into a mud-like substance, being ten meters in depth as it stretched from Mathias' short range all the way towards Noctis'/Shuck's long range, and both individual's medium range to either side of them.

Before having his head sink inside the swamp's mud, Mathias grabbed a mouth full of air as he proceeded to hold his breath. Simultaneously, he sunk into the depth's of the swamp with his hands frozen in the "snake" hand seal position in preparation for his next technique. Mathias' body quickly sunk deeper and deeper, successfully avoiding the fire's wrath as it went over ahead, heating up the surface of the swamp. Mathias proceeded to activate his second technique, continuously petrifying the mud surrounding his body, taking advantage of his own weight and the down-full of gravity itself, causing an end-less cycle of petrification, crumbling, and descent, giving him a means to travel through his own technique.

Upon reaching the untouched ground, Mathias proceeded to turn the surface beneath him into fine sand, allowing himself to dig through it as he made his way medium range behind him (Most likely long range away from Noctis depending on his counter). Mathias utilized that same technique to pin-point Noctis' location, allowing him to estimate a rough location about his whereabouts as he then emerged from the ground. Wasting no time, Mathias increased his guard as he reached into his ninja pouch with his left hand for a tagged kunai as he looked toward's Noctis' pin-pointed location.
