    Tall and broad, well-kept, well-muscled, well-manicured, and undeniably pretty, "Osha" magnifies his physicality, both on and off stage, with a larger than life personality. Thick, wavy blond hair cascades from his pale, smiling face down to his almost porcelain, muscled shoulders and though he maintains a defined physical tone to his body, one would never be tempted to categorize him as particularly beefy. No, much better to label him sleek and lithe, descriptors magnified by his sharp face, small nose, and mirthful, eyes; eyes which almost immediately out him as something not quite human. A mottled shifting of pearlescent pink-and-aqua, he has no proper pupils, instead black kanji for "love" and "bullet" take the places of pedestrian pupils, one for each eye.

    Though he prefers, when offered, to remain in the nude with assorted confidants, clothing remains a requirement of civilized society and he dresses to impress. Or perhaps hypnotize might be a better way of putting it. He loves fine silk robes of elaborate embroideries, or perfectly tailored button ups which he leaves unbuttoned down to his navel. Rings often adorn his long, slender fingers and on stage he dons his signature hat, an article which has gained extreme popularity in the last few years among the less war-like in Kumo.

    His movements reflect his practiced smoothness: he hardly ever walks, but instead sashays about; he does not merely lift a cup to his mouth but raises a chalice to take a long, cool drink; he does not have sex but ravishes the body and soul of those with whom he shares his bed. And, when he has it his way, he shares his bed with many. He does not prefer long monologues about his nonsense ideals but, when he does speak, his rich baritone pleases all those who can hear. For those unfortunately without such abilities, his tongue will happily please their ears if only they ask.

    History:

    "Out"

    The dull red glow of a hundred paper lanterns no longer lit the street far below the large, elaborate pent-house-turned-party-den. A cloud of incense - and god knows what else- hung in the room, now illuminated after the record scratch ending of the party's sudden conclusion. What had promised to extend from mid-evening, through the newest show, until perhaps tonight had ended at just after 10, the light of the day encroaching rudely upon what promised to be a dark day indeed.

    Gripped tightly within the beautiful hands of Osha, pop-star extraordinaire, the summons from the leader of the village crumpled more and more as his grip tightened. Removing a single hand from the balcony, he reached to his side and downed a gulp very old bourbon, gagged slightly, and scanned the document once more. As he had guess, the current war had gone less well that originally anticipated and the battlements needed additional warm bodies. But why him? What could the military possibly need with a singer-songwriter-performer? Sure, he had a few illicit ties and backwater purchasing avenues, but surely the office of the Kage had as good if not better access.

    It was that bloodline of his. To be fair, he figured he should have counted himself lucky that it had taken so long to receive a conscription. He'd hoped that the offices had simply forgotten about his ill-tended to heritage.

    His life's work up to this point simply abolished in a swift missive. A single note. All the instruments he had thought up and crafted himself, all the shows, the songs. He laughed bitterly at the absurdity of drafting Kumo's rising star, though the irony of his performances constantly being criticized by mindless plebeians as being too "high concept;" well what more could he do in the efforts of a high-concept performance than that of a ninja. But perhaps too high concept even for him. For now, he still had some more shows to attend, and technically the shinobi life had nothing in particular against a life of debauchery. In fact, if the rumors were too, ninja tended to be downright lunatics.

    Personality:Gyokusho conjures the image of something like a classical gentleman filtered through the ambient musings of a scratched up piece of vinyl minted fifty years prior and focusing primarily on a futuristic vision of good times and frenetic techno-pop; or, he is a perfect mashup between a night of fine bourbon and cigar smoking and strobed dance floor covered in sweat from the overuse of molly. All of this to say that, on the most surface of levels, he eschews the expectations one might form upon first seeing his elegance and dapperness in favor of a wild and joy-filled mixture of those same refinements taken to an extreme level and with just a touch of the devilishly insane tossed in for good measure. And obviously both shaken and then stirred up.

    He loves his vices, likely because they are vices, and thus you will find his drinking, smoking, fighting, brawling, goading, flirting, baiting, shouting, dancing the disco, disrupting the peace as much as possible. Most around him find it impossible to tell if he is bisexual or simply a chronic flirt and tease, but most assuredly he loves his women and, by sheer volume of noise, the sound as if they love him too, unless of course transience is a turn-off for you; but, is life not a fleeting moment? In conversation he moves for bluntness and dislikes pussy-footing around in formalities, though he can trade barbs with the best of them, and it appears that he cannot take anything seriously whatsoever, always caught with a little grin on his face, an invitation to ask away and join in his drunken reveries.

    While dancing the apocalypse on a nightly bases can easily take its toll on the best of us, Gyo's energy abounds in an almost childlike manner as he sprints frenetically to and fro to suck the marrow from life. That said, his antics and urges belie a certain political shrewdness and compulsion towards domination. One does not build a cult-like musical empire based solely upon charisma and a penchant for radical soundscapes; no, Osho must also sleep with his fans to achieve this.

  • Bio-magnetism:Though untended, the academy has revealed an unusually powerful strain of the Kazehana bloodline. Gyokusho's body possesses a powerful natural magnetic field and large deposits of magnetic materials within it. He can thus use his bloodline at the same speed as his coordination stat. However, these powerful magnetic fields disrupt chakra and cause any healing technique used upon him to be treated as one rank weaker.

  • Escherian Dream Metamorphosis: A strange process of nesting increasingly smaller duplicates of an initial pattern, this surreal and artistic process results in confusing and circular mega-patterns. These fuinjutsu ensnare souls for the purposes of enchantment, and because spirits can be set to cycle at different times in the maze, two enchantments can occupy the same pattern. However, the process is tedious and mind-bending, causing it to increase the price of each enchantment by 50%.

  • Nightmare's Workshop: Puppets can be high-concept as well. By focusing the majority of the mechanisms on one aspect over another, Gyokusho can break the A rank cap for strength and constitution on a top-tier puppet, boosting it to S. Doing so will leave the build unbalanced though, and will require that the opposite stat is capped at B rank instead.

  • Express Ticket: Crafting his own musical instruments, set pieces, and occasional state equipment has taught the man to improvise. When crafting, he can reduce the necessary time by 1 rank, but the relevant skill for crafting will also be treated as 1 rank less when working so quickly.


  • Ok so a couple of things.

    First, "You may only have 1 Crafting/Enchanting related Unique Ability." You will need to pick between one or the other, but you cannot have both.

    Second, without the Fuuinjutsu Skill you cannot enchant an item so the UA is invalid, though you can pick it up through a class up if you don't have a crafting UA.

    Third, Bio-magnetism. While I like where you are going with the idea, unfortunately The only thing that can abridge the -1 tier free form manip rule is an Restricted Enhanced State not a UA. Sorry.

    And Finally, Nightmare's workshop is a No-Go. Puppets are hardcapped at A for a reason, as they exist right now are arguably OP. Again sorry.


    On a side note, you need at least one skill point going to one of the elements that make up magnet release. Paying into the clan so to speak, also without Both elements that make up magnet release you would be unable to unlock and use magnet release.

    Ok!

    My bad, I totally missed the only 1 crafting UA clause. Reading is hard.

    Removed/replaced the other issue ones. I'd like to keep the double enchant, but do I have to take Fuin right away for that? I just didn't know and am happy to swap to have it right away if I need to.

    Thank you!

    Jeweled General: Osha's performances have always been described as unusually captivating; when using a puppet, opponents' suffer a debuff of 1 (-) to their perception per puppet employed, as tracking them all becomes increasingly difficult. This is no simple feat however, and Osha's suffers 1 (-) to his intelligence per puppet he uses.

    UAs which debuff an opponent's stats such as this are not allowed. You will be able to potentially register a Puppetry technique with this concept, however.


    Escherian Dream Metamorphosis: A strange process of nesting increasingly smaller duplicates of an initial pattern, this surreal and artistic process results in confusing and circular macro-patterns. These fuinjutsu ensnare souls for the purposes of enchantment, and because spirits can be set to cycle at different times in the maze, two enchantments can occupy the same pattern. However, the process is tedious and mind-bending, causing it to increase the price of each enchantment by 50%.

    Double enchantments for the slot of one is also a disallowed ability on our site. Enchantment slots are incredibly valuable, hence why we have a short limit of them. No UA will be able to bypass this limit.


    Eternal Castle: Perhaps a bit cowardly, Osha prefers to keep his beautiful face far from danger. When fleeing or running away from a threat, he gains a temporary 1 tier in speed. On the flip side, he is averse to being in danger, and thus loses a tier of speed if and when pursuing a target.

    Your drawback for your Speed boost needs to suffer an immediate, relevant effect. Something such as a -1 tier debuff to Perception. In addition, toggling these types of UAs always require a 5 CP cost.

    Yokai Bureaucratic Spiritualism: As a Yokai, and a Tengu at that, Osha is a spiritualist and a trickster with a love of gumming up systems with pointless paperwork. He himself is quite resistant to this kind of spiritual damage, resulting in chakra based attacks being treated as one rank lower against him (ninjutsu, fuinjutsu, etc). However, as a Tengu, his physical prowess are lacking, meaning physical skills are one rank stronger against him (taijutsu, bukijutsu, etc). This has no effect whatsoever on genjutsu.

    You must choose a single type of damage, whether it's Physical, Lightning, Fire, Non-Elemental, Fuuinjutsu, etc. You cannot pick a broad category such as "chakra based attacks" as the benefits of that greatly exceeds the limitation for UAs.

    Sorry, didn't know UA's couldn't do debuffs or that the double enchant was no longer allowed.

    Removed all those and fixed the last one. Hope 3rd times the charm. If 5 isn't allowed I'll just delete it.

    Thank you.

    4: Resistant to genjutsu. Treat intelligence of caster(s) who target Osha for a genjutsu as 1 tier lower. However, takes additional damage from ijutsu, increasing their effectiveness by 1 rank, or reduced by 1 rank for healing effects.

    Ijutsu has very limited offensive abilities making this drawback not suitable for Genjutsu defense. You could instead take additional damage from any element, non-elemental Ninjutsu, physical attacks, and anything of similar value.


    5: Permanent ++ to Perception, permanent -- to Strength.

    Permanent boosting is not allowed. You must toggle this ability by spending 5CP.

    Sorry again for all the mistakes.

    It's just been brought to my attention that if I don't use the free 1650 starting exp upon character creation acceptance I will lose it? I'm assuming we just... hadn't gotten to that phase of this review process but regardless, I've since spent them to make sure they don't just vanish. Wanted to provide a heads up to that area that changed.

    Yes, hence why it both increases the damage he receives from Ijutsu and decreases the healing he receives from it as well. If that isn't sufficient I'm happy to change it, but it does seem a bit arbitrary.

    @Hana Kaguya wrote:Permanent boosting is not allowed. You must toggle this ability by spending 5CP.

    Perhaps I'm reading this wrong, but I assumed from reading the below that you could take a permanent hit to one stat in exchange for a permanent raise to another? Again, if I'm misreading this I'll just delete it.

    Follow your own path - Character loses a - to intelligence and a -- to perception. Gains a + to strength and a ++ to speed

    Thank you again for your time. As an aside, is any of this stuff written down anywhere that I could reference? It would just have saved a lot of time and frustration.

    Ijutsu is far from common to be considered equal to Genjutsu, which is why it isn't deemed an equal drawback. This is for the same reason you cannot choose Dust Release as a drawback to any common skill.

    Thank you for bringing this discrepancy up. I will correct this so there will be no more misleading examples.

    We do not archive every UA that gets denied for the same reason we do not archive every technique, clan idea, and so on. It's an endless task and has little application. We've found it to be much more efficient to instead log approved UAs, from which members can draw from. You can find that list here:

    And thank you once more. I didn't mean to suggest some kind of endless list of what has been previously denied. I've had 3 UA's hard denied for what appear to be unlisted site rules/mechanics. Just thought it might be worth adding those.

    This is great work so far, just a couple minor fixes.

    So for the UA’s you have listed;

    4: Resistant to genjutsu. Treat intelligence of caster(s) who target Osha for a genjutsu as 1 tier lower. However, takes additional rank of damage from earth release.

    I think I see what you’re going for here, and my suggestion for a way to allow that and make it balanced would be like this;

    Gyokusho’s Intelligence is treated as 1 rank higher for the purposes of recognizing Genjutsu, though at a cost of taking one rank higher in psychological damage from Genjutsu.

    The fifth one;
    5: Can toggle to take -- to Strength in exchange for ++ to Perception. 5 cp to go back and forth.

    So for this, the UA is meant to be semi permanent. Meaning if you activate it in the thread it remains active for the rest of the thread, so just minor rewording instead of "5cp to go back and forth" it would be "This ability cost 5cp to activate and remains active for the remainder of the thread" also you can make it a full tier boost/debuff if you like with a full tier reduction in return instead of just the (++)

    Thank you for your help on the UA's and the toggle clarification. Also I'd like to just keep it at ++ and not a full tier. I think it's ready!!!

    Tall and broad, well-kept, well-muscled, well-manicured, and undeniably pretty, "Osha" magnifies his physicality, both on and off stage, with a larger than life personality. Thick, wavy blond hair cascades from his pale, smiling face down to his almost porcelain, muscled shoulders and though he maintains a defined physical tone to his body, one would never be tempted to categorize him as particularly beefy. No, much better to label him sleek and lithe, descriptors magnified by his sharp face, small nose, and mirthful, eyes; eyes which almost immediately out him as something not quite human. A mottled shifting of pearlescent pink-and-aqua, he has no proper pupils, instead black kanji for "love" and "bullet" take the places of pedestrian pupils, one for each eye.

    Though he prefers, when offered, to remain in the nude with assorted confidants, clothing remains a requirement of civilized society and he dresses to impress. Or perhaps hypnotize might be a better way of putting it. He loves fine silk robes of elaborate embroideries, or perfectly tailored button ups which he leaves unbuttoned down to his navel. Rings often adorn his long, slender fingers and on stage he dons his signature hat, an article which has gained extreme popularity in the last few years among the less war-like in Kumo.

    His movements reflect his practiced smoothness: he hardly ever walks, but instead sashays about; he does not merely lift a cup to his mouth but raises a chalice to take a long, cool drink; he does not have sex but ravishes the body and soul of those with whom he shares his bed. And, when he has it his way, he shares his bed with many. He does not prefer long monologues about his nonsense ideals but, when he does speak, his rich baritone pleases all those who can hear. For those unfortunately without such abilities, his tongue will happily please their ears if only they ask.

    History:

    "Out"

    The dull red glow of a hundred paper lanterns no longer lit the street far below the large, elaborate pent-house-turned-party-den. A cloud of incense - and god knows what else- hung in the room, now illuminated after the record scratch ending of the party's sudden conclusion. What had promised to extend from mid-evening, through the newest show, until perhaps tonight had ended at just after 10, the light of the day encroaching rudely upon what promised to be a dark day indeed.

    Gripped tightly within the beautiful hands of Osha, pop-star extraordinaire, the summons from the leader of the village crumpled more and more as his grip tightened. Removing a single hand from the balcony, he reached to his side and downed a gulp very old bourbon, gagged slightly, and scanned the document once more. As he had guess, the current war had gone less well that originally anticipated and the battlements needed additional warm bodies. But why him? What could the military possibly need with a singer-songwriter-performer? Sure, he had a few illicit ties and backwater purchasing avenues, but surely the office of the Kage had as good if not better access.

    It was that bloodline of his. To be fair, he figured he should have counted himself lucky that it had taken so long to receive a conscription. He'd hoped that the offices had simply forgotten about his ill-tended to heritage.

    His life's work up to this point simply abolished in a swift missive. A single note. All the instruments he had thought up and crafted himself, all the shows, the songs. He laughed bitterly at the absurdity of drafting Kumo's rising star, though the irony of his performances constantly being criticized by mindless plebeians as being too "high concept;" well what more could he do in the efforts of a high-concept performance than that of a ninja. But perhaps too high concept even for him. For now, he still had some more shows to attend, and technically the shinobi life had nothing in particular against a life of debauchery. In fact, if the rumors were too, ninja tended to be downright lunatics.

    Personality:Gyokusho conjures the image of something like a classical gentleman filtered through the ambient musings of a scratched up piece of vinyl minted fifty years prior and focusing primarily on a futuristic vision of good times and frenetic techno-pop; or, he is a perfect mashup between a night of fine bourbon and cigar smoking and strobed dance floor covered in sweat from the overuse of molly. All of this to say that, on the most surface of levels, he eschews the expectations one might form upon first seeing his elegance and dapperness in favor of a wild and joy-filled mixture of those same refinements taken to an extreme level and with just a touch of the devilishly insane tossed in for good measure. And obviously both shaken and then stirred up.

    He loves his vices, likely because they are vices, and thus you will find his drinking, smoking, fighting, brawling, goading, flirting, baiting, shouting, dancing the disco, disrupting the peace as much as possible. Most around him find it impossible to tell if he is bisexual or simply a chronic flirt and tease, but most assuredly he loves his women and, by sheer volume of noise, the sound as if they love him too, unless of course transience is a turn-off for you; but, is life not a fleeting moment? In conversation he moves for bluntness and dislikes pussy-footing around in formalities, though he can trade barbs with the best of them, and it appears that he cannot take anything seriously whatsoever, always caught with a little grin on his face, an invitation to ask away and join in his drunken reveries.

    While dancing the apocalypse on a nightly bases can easily take its toll on the best of us, Gyo's energy abounds in an almost childlike manner as he sprints frenetically to and fro to suck the marrow from life. That said, his antics and urges belie a certain political shrewdness and compulsion towards domination. One does not build a cult-like musical empire based solely upon charisma and a penchant for radical soundscapes; no, Osho must also sleep with his fans to achieve this.
