The Rikouru Clan

Post by Rikouru Ura on Sat Feb 27, 2016 1:02 pm

The Rikouru Clan


Name: The Rikouru
Founder: Rikouru Genpuku
Location: Hyou no Kuni

History:  The Rikouru are a clan of ninja monks created by Rikouru Genpuku, years before the village system. Originally a clan of ordinary monks, Genpuku lead his people away from warring ninja to a safe haven in the mountains of Hyou no Kuni . The monks created their temples and the monastery’s in the mountains, creating safe havens for wanderers and vagabonds who just wanted to be left in peace. There, they practiced their religion in harmony. All they ever wanted was to live in peace.

Things are never so simple, are they?

The Rikouru were soon dragged into conflicts despite their best efforts. Violence spilled into their mountains as outlaws and bands of warring shinobi alike targeted the temples. This lead them to develop the Dharma Fuuinjutsu secret technique as a defensive measure, using it only to protect their pacifist ways from attackers. For a few years, this worked. Rumours of powerful shinobi monks guarding several areas of the wilderness began deterring shinobi from venturing into the area.

However, where some where scared of their power, others were drawn to it. In his ambition to create a Hidden Village and unify frozen lands of Hyou no Kuni under his rule, the first Hyozankage approached the Rikouru, proposing an allegiance. The Rikouru rejected the offer, stating they had no desire to partake in the wars of other shinobi and merely wanted to be left alone and at peace. The Hyozankage didn’t accept no for an answer, however, and led his men to attack the monks.

The monks managed to defend their temples for quite some time, but in the end they were outmatched and outnumbered. After most of their members had been killed and all but a few of the temples destroyed, they realized they had no choice but to submit to the Hyozankage.

Nowadays the Rikouru are part of Hyozan’s forces. Although their monk’s code clashes with the orders of the Hyozankage sometimes, nevertheless the monks try to stick to their lifestyle as much as possible.

Clan Head: Rikouru Gouzen

Hierarchy:  The Rikouru clan hierarchy is hazy at best. Due to their pacifistic and non-materialistic nature, each member who abides the code has equal rights. However, there are members that manage to rise to a position of respect. This position is called “Honorary Monk.” Any monk can be suggested for this title during the yearly meetings that they have. During these meetings, arguments are given as to why these monks should or should not be given this title, and afterwards a vote is held. At least 75% of the members needs to vote pro for the clansman to gain this title. The Head Monk is also chosen during these meetings from the already established Honorary Monks. The Head Monk serves until his death, until he or she voluntarily resigns or until a vote of resignation is requested and passed. The Head Monk serves as the main representative towards the outside world and has the ability to call for meetings, but abides the rules like any other monk.

Culture The Rikouru are a clan of ninja monks. In order to combine their monk’s creed with life as a shinobi, they have developed a new code that all members must abide by.

1.Always seek to be in balance. Strive for inner peace.
2. Suffering comes from worldly attachment.
3. Respect all life.
4. Do not waste your time and energy on luxury.
5. Do not use alcohol.
6. Seek violence only as a last-resort measure.
7. Never apply more violence than necessary.
8. Remain celibate outside of marriage

The first rule applies to not only a healthy lifestyle, but to the finding of inner peace. Inner peace means being honest with oneself, accepting ones shortcomings and staying close to ones nature. The clan respects any and all members who abide this code. Breaking this code results in punishment depending on the severity of the crime. The head monk decides the punishment, which can range to forced solitary meditation for a set amount of time to banishment. However, the code is still subservient to the rule of the village. If a clansman kills another clansman, the crime of killing a shinobi from the same village weighs heavier than whatever aspects of the code may be broken, and the perpetrator’s fate shall be decided by whatever justice system the village uses. Likewise a banished monk is still considered a shinobi of the village, but is no longer welcome in the temples of the Rikouru and is not considered a member of the clan anymore.

Despite being very traditional in nature, the Rikouru make no distinction between male and female members, and both genders are considered equal.

Attire: All clansman wear a monk’s robe that is white and grey, with a light blue stash, as well as a bead necklace. It is custom to shave your head, female members are no exception. Members generally wear simple pants and sandals.

Requirements:

IC: See above segment for the monk’s code.

OOC: The clan is currently open. Your character needs to come from the village that the clan belongs to. Missing-nin or members who defected to a different village are considered banished.

Current Members:
- Rikouru Gouzen [Clan Head][NPC]
- Rikouru Ura

Houriki Fuuinjutsu – Dharma Sealing Method
Type of Kekkei Genkai: Fuuinjutsu
Rank: D - S

Description:

Dharma Fuuinjutsu is a special school of fuuinjutsu techniques that are highly diverse and are sustained through music. There exist a wide range of fuuinjutsu for multiple purposes, offensive or defensive, making the Rikouru highly versatile fighters in their own rights and allows them to take on a variety of roles. Each technique has a specific melody that, when performed, will sustain the technique until the melody is stopped or the user’s chakra runs out. The traditional instrument used by the monks is a lute, however any sort of musical instrument can be used. Some techniques also employ additional mediums. The most common medium is a ritualistic talisman that members tend to carry several of at any time. One of the main advantages is that because the techniques become active the moment the melody starts, they are generally quicker to set up than techniques that use hand seals, especially on higher levels.

Drawbacks: Most of the Dharma Fuuinjutsu techniques require constant musical support. This results in a number of weaknesses. For one, it means that the user cannot perform two Dharma Fuuinjutsu at the same time, since each technique requires its own distinct melody. While more experienced clansmen are able to perfectly flow one type of melody into another, this still means the technique previously active is cancelled. It also means the hands are constantly occupied. Taijutsu or techniques that require hand seals likewise result in the cancellation of the Dharma technique that is active at the time.

The melodies also become more complex the more powerful the technique becomes. This means that performing more powerful techniques requires a great deal of concentration and cannot be used while moving. When clansmen become more experienced, they learn to use the more basic techniques while moving around. The table for this is as follows:

Genin: Cannot use any techniques while moving.
Chuunin: Can use D-rank techniques while moving.
Jounin : Can use D and C-rank techniques while moving.
Sannin and Kage: Can use D, C and B-rank techniques while moving.

These restrictions on body and hand movement mean most clansmen rely a lot on their fuuinjutsu for offensive and defensive purposes, and generally possess lacklustre taijutsu and bukijutsu skills. It’s not that members of the Rikouru clan cannot learn taijutsu/bukijutsu, ninjutsu or genjutsu skills, or even excel at them if given enough training. It’s just that the nature of their Kekkei Genkai makes it difficult to combine with other techniques.

Description ;; Arguably the staple technique of the Rikouru, it acts as a basic template for many other Dharma Sealing Techniques. By playing the required melody, the user is capable of creating and manipulating masses of black kanji-esque symbols that shape into up to five humanoid figures before the user. Each figure is six foot tall and can move freely as long as they stay within the technique range. The figures are sustained as long as the melody is active and the user has chakra. They have liquid-like properties and can freely distribute their mass. They can resist basic weaponry and can reassemble lost mass, but are weak against techniques that target the entire body, such as fire release techniques. Due to their liquid-like properties they can easily morph parts of their body in order to attack.

When empty, the storage seal creates a whirlpool-like suction effect that can seal techniques of equal rank or lower or incoming weaponry. This has a reach of five meters.  

When something has been stored within the seal, activating it will release it. This allows the seal to fire stored kunai or shuriken or absorbed techniques at the opponent. Stored weapons have a reach of five meters, stored techniques’ range depends on the technique itself. If the medium is destroyed, whatever was sealed into the medium is destroyed alongside it.

The user imbues four mediums with a special type of seal that can be activated through hitting a single note. By playing the required melody, the user is capable of creating and manipulating masses of black kanji-esque symbols that shape around the medium into four humanoid figures before the user, the medium serving as a face of sorts. Each figure is six foot tall and can move freely as long as they stay within the technique range. The figure is sustained as long as the melody is active and the user has chakra. It has liquid-like properties and can freely distribute its mass. It can resist basic weaponry and can reassemble lost mass, but are weak against techniques that target the entire body, such as fire release techniques.

When activated, a cube-shaped dome appears in between the four mediums, each serving as a cornerstone to the dome. The dome cannot be broken through unless a captured opponent uses a technique of greater power, or unless any of the mediums is destroyed from the outside of the dome. The user can also trigger an explosion within the dome that destroys the technique as well as damaging anything within the dome. The force in this technique symbolizes both the force of the barrier and the force of the explosion.

Name ;; Houriki Fuuinjutsu: Shukufuku Daichi - Dharma Sealing Technique: Sacred Ground
Rank ;; B
Type ;; Fuuinjutsu
Element ;; N/A
Range ;; 13 m
Power ;; 4
Speed ;; 2
Cool Down;; 3 posts
Description ;; A defensive technique in which the user plays the required melody and creates a hexagonical-chaped, transparent dome around the user. The dome is around three square meters around the user and three meters high, and can be used to block attacks equal to its rank. Enemies making direct contact with the shield will receive a shock, resuling in first degree burns as well as a post of numbness and speed decreased by half the techniques’ power. The dome has a ten-meter long tentacle that seems to be made of chained-together kanji emerging from each corner which can be used to grab things or whip nearby opponents. The user must remain stationary for this technique.

Name ;; Houriki Fuuinjutsu: Akai Ito - Dharma Sealing Technique: Red String of Fate
Rank ;; A
Type ;; Fuuinjutsu
Element ;; N/A
Range ;; 50m
Power ;; 4
Speed ;; 4
Cool Down;; 4 posts
Description ;; The user plays the required melody, causing up to three crimson, barbed chains to appear from the user’s chest. These chains can freely move and have a reach of fifty meters. If the barb at the end of the chain connects with an opponent, it will latch onto the opponent’s chakra stream. The end of the chain will vanish into their body without leaving wounds, and begin leeching their chakra to the user as well as slowing down their movement by a third of the technique’s power. Each subsequent chain that enters the body decreases movement speed by a third of the technique’s power, if the user’s speech reaches zero he or she can no longer move.  For each chain, per post a C-rank amount of chakra is drained and added to the user’s reserves. While under the effect of this, the victim’s chakra is suppressed, thus the victim cannot use chakra. The chains can be distributed among multiple enemies.

There are a few weaknesses to this technique. Even after a chain makes contact, if the victim can still move and manages to move out of the fifty meter reach, the chain will disconnect. The user’s body is also open for attacks while this technique is being used.

Alright, this clan is excellent btw! I thoroughly enjoyed reading it~

Ability

On the KKG, I'd like a little more description on the seals themselves, if it's something similar to like the Nina Phantom Dragons/Uzumaki Chakra Chains thing. (I feel like this technique comes from one of the more recent fillers lol but I'm just confused on the mechanism) or if it's a sealing style where you have to make direct contact. As well as if a medium is used, where is the (chakra/object) sealed into without it?

Jutsu

Can the seal be broken while freely floating around? (And if so, any methods it is resistance against?) And I assume the melody controls the movement of the seals as well?

On Spiritual Servant and subsequent techniques, I'd like the range brought down some or the number of created figures reduced, you also mention that they are resistant to basic weapons and can reassemble lost mass, but is there any limit to that outside the melody playing? (Seems incredibly potent for a simple C rank)

On Shironeri, you mention chakra (almost like Kai) as an escape but what if the opponent has a strength far greater than the power of the kanji objects?

Guardian Angel, handseals for placing the seal on the ally?

Tsukomogami, lower the range of each sealing whirlpool action. Also, change the mention of equal or lower rank to power. We don't tend to equate rank to power and that's why every jutsu has it's own power stat.

On cursed ground, I assume that the user can move the mediums as they would the kanji previously? I would also like the range on this brought down some (despite the whole linear-rank approach you have going on here) and the cool down brought up to 5 posts.

Sacred Ground, again replace rank with the power idea and I'd also like this to follow the same mechanic as Cursed Ground since it is doing nearly the same thing?

Red String of Fate, on this technique I'd like the cooldown brought up a bit (since this is one hell of a technique) and drop it to a D rank techniques worth of chakra per turn. On top, I don't know if I like the supression of chakra idea, maybe make it an escalating thing per turn? So after ___ many turns being held by the chain they can't use ___ level jutsu and scale it from there? Even then, I know it's implied in how the clan works but I'd like it stated that the user can't move from their place while using this jutsu

For Void, I'd like the range brought down significantly on the sealing area itself. You get 60 m to move the object at a speed equal to your chakra, 30 meters on top of that is extreme, also, the power to seal anything away within the area without any chakra or strength or endurance check is approaching upon SS rank territory so I'd like to address that in some form as well. Also, is the user immune to the affects of the seal as well? I mean, it'd be unlikely, but what if someone should incidently activate the seal while they are in range?

Special Characteristics

Seems fine to me~
