All That Is Bijuu / Re: Centralized Storage for Summoned Biju?

Okay, so now we need execution. How are we going to go about setting this up? Some random event that the summoners join? The summoners do their own RP to get there or something?

Well if there is a cataclysmic storm surrounding the location at all times with the potential to kill, then I think defenses on the actual island against intrusion should be fairly minimal. We don't want to make a fortified village SL-style for the beasts, just someplace for them to hang out in the physical world that can be used in biju hunts without, non-training RP with the biju summons, meeting among summoners, etc.

I'd recognize that island anywhere. It's the world map from the first Digimon World game. :) Great game despite the bugs and bad localization. The new Digimon World: Next Order is a great sequel in my opinion. Everything about it is better.

Awww man, it has been forever since I have had me some digimon, I did not think it was still going after all this time.

Why does it has to be easily accessible?

Think of the island like Genbu (the Island Turtle), floating somewhere out in the ocean. If you can fly and know exactly where it is, it's not hard to reach. Going by boat or on the back of a giant amphibious/aquatic summon with a rough idea of where it is would take longer, but still doable. Trying to find it without the slightest idea of where it is would be is impossible unless you got really really lucky and the waves just happen to carry you there.

As for the lore, the Sage of Six Paths created the island for the Bijuu, as a place where they can gather together and be free. All bijuu know its location, but will only reveal it to the Jinchuuriki or summoner after they have really bonded with it. Or you can simply use Genjutsu on your Bijuu and make it reveal the location after your character found out about its existence.

I editted it into my previous post, but the only reason I wanted it to be accessible to non-summoners is because it seemed to defeat the point of having the biju be in a physical location in the first place. If the thing could only be accessed via a specific space-time ninjutsu then why not let them be in a pocket dimension?

It could be a place that the biju summoners find and start using, and then a tradition of biju summoners would pass down its location, with the biju who have been summoned before knowing of the location? I don't want previous jinchs from ages ago claiming to know the location just because they previously mastered the beast.

An island somewhere then...

Where is this island and how do I get a ticket there? It does look inviting, has several climates. I can already spot the perfect place for Kokuo right there in that southern forest with the lake.

Clarification on earlier: I have to take back a previous statement, a fantasy location that only the summoner can get to is technically not against the rule as long as it's a physical location, though someplace largely inaccessible seems to defeat the point.

What is important here is that as long as it is not against the biju rules, you can include a variety of things in your tattoo. You can have a little hologram pop up if you wanna get fancy, the only criteria that MUST be there are listed in the rules, the most important being that it is a signal of the beast, similar to what a jinch would give off because they host a beast.

A centralized place would be controlled access, but it would have to be accessible to more than just the summoner(s), so reverse summoning being the only way in is a no go. My character is all over the space-time continuum right now, but once all those RPs catch up to the present, I'll probably have the 5-tails chill out in some forest or open plain or something. Maybe even the outskirts of Jisiagakure, I have a base near there. Or maybe send it to some forest somewhere.

I figured most people already had some place in the land where the beast was when they were not summoned.

1) The only kind of bond that a summoner can forge between him/her and a Bijuu, is one of respect earned from the show of strength. Showing any kind of weakness would damage that bond.
2) The Bijuu will not actively try to kill its summoner even when not under Genjutsu or unrestrained by chains of chakra and whatnot.
3) It will carry out the commands of its summoner without being forced or threaten.
4) It does not have the initiative to protect its summoner when he/she is in danger. Even when it is ordered to do so, it will see this as a sign of weakness and become less willing to listen to its summoner in the future.

I like the general idea, but don't 3 and 4 contradict each other? If a summoned tailed beast is less willing to listen to the summoner but will not at any point disobey commands (even when for all intents and purposes a free roaming biju) then there is no point in even having it under genjutsu at that point.

I think just leaving it at the "respect through show of force" concept and the beast unwilling to actively defend the summoner would be a better way to go about it. Question is, what is a show of force? Beating off challengers? Winning pokemon battles with it in the battle?

Actually, I kind of like that one. The biju learns to respect you more if you win battles with it called into the fight. Though it can't be any kind of fight like a spar, it has got to be a biju battle.

Village Square / Re: Burdens of the Sage [ Eric and Jay RP]

Reibi chuckled, as if Jay's response was some sort of affirmation of something for him. Facing towards the grey-ish black sky, Reibi closed his eyes for a moment, seemingly lost in thought. Picturing in his mind the demonstrative fireball of his choice, Reibi flexed his arms, cracked his neck, and somewhat comically spread his legs outward as if bracing himself. With a tail thump signalling the end to his preparations, Reibi took in a deep breath, his torso almost unnaturally expanding outward as he took in air.

When it seemed that he might pop his lungs like a balloon overfilled with hydrogen, the dragon exhaled fiery bursts into the air in a fashion akin to fireworks. Vibrant oranges, greens, and even reds lit up the otherwise depressing sky as the traditional bursted outwards like rapidly budding flowers, the resounding thunder akin to mini artillery shells bursting in midair. And not just in one place either, Reibi turned his head a few degrees here and there and shot them in a roughly 60 degree arc, creating a sort of tapestry with his work.

Now there were reds and blues and even some purples as the shapes changed to something more distinct, like fiery tendrils reaching out from the centerpiece of the explosion to grasp at the imaginary purple twinkles that might were supposed to represent stars.

The entire audience seemed quiet, even Eric, as the breath of the dragon seemed to slowly wane as he came upon his finale. A noticeably larger fireball, comparable to the Uchiha's signature great fireball technique. When it burst into the air, the shockwave rippled throughout the air, a blaslt that would have rocked windows and startled unsuspecting beasts from their foraging. A bright orange-red that shimmered as it faded.

Reibi, though out of breath, calmly caught his breath before stepping back, all applause seemingly held for the end. It was Jay's turn now, and with such an open display, there was no doubt that he could glean that the nature of the competition involved showing off an intricate understanding of katon and the artistic vision of an explosion from mere fire.

Uchiha-style Katon alone did not tend to create that bursting effect, though. Gunpowder-like substances could be created with Katon chakra, and upon observation with the special eyes of the sharingan it could be safely assumed that such manipulation of katon chakra could be the culrpit for the very diverse coloration. Such precise control of Katon, of course, would suggest that non-fire breathing dragons by default had trouble with this competition in the past.

Maybe why it was more of a "tradition" than anything else, but the land itself showed clear signs of overall not being too friendly to say water-borne dragons or dragons more accustomed to a wintry climate.

Anyways, the odd silence of the dragons, despite that being the first part of round one, seemed odd. The roars were supposed to determine the winner of each round, right? Maybe it would be a shouting match after the conclusion of each? Or was this first display considered so demonstrative that it would not be counted? While Jay had little indication towards one or the other, Reibi had started with this with one purpose in mind.

To start the bar high for the seeming newcomer.

But, why?

Well, other than the biju rules, since summoned biju no longer hate their summoners indefinitely, then the RP involving them changes a bit, so maybe a place for them to hang out when not in battle was something to toss around.

Course, other than me, Jay is the only tailed beast summoner for the time being, so it's not really something urgent or anything.

Sacrificing criminals and eventually prisoners of war. What's it to ya?

What war?  :o That sounds like a thread all its own on the bulletin.

All That Is Bijuu / Centralized Storage for Summoned Biju?
« on: June 16, 2017, 02:11:22 pm »
Dart made the suggestion of a communal place for summoned biju to be kept in the physical world. While that does seem kind of difficult to manage with what currently exists, if there is interest, we summoners could get together and scrap together someplace. Maybe a Biju Oasis or Clearing or something.

Is there any interest in that kind of arrangement?

Gyururu brought up a good point in the voting thread for changing the constant hate relationship of the tailed beast summon: as it is currently it is kind of, vague as to how close the two can get. What is "not a close as breath"? When I wrote it I was thinking the idea of self-preservation and unity being different what with distinct bodies, but as can be noticed that did not make it into the actual vote topic.

With that said though, what do you all think the bond between the summoned biju and the summoner should cap at? Considering the time required to fully master the tailed beast as a jinchurikii, it is important that there still remain a boundary line between a fully mastered biju as a jinchurikii and as a summoner.

Update to the rules regarding summoning Biju:

1) Summoned beasts will no longer infinitely hate their summoner, but will not bond with their summoner as much as a sealed biju bonds with the host. Something to do with not being as close as a breath.,9433.0.html

2) Player character summoners are reduced to 2 actions per post while the biju is summoned and under their control. If control is lost, then the restriction is lifted until control is regained.,9434.0.html

3) Outside of battle or training, summoned biju do not continuously drain the user's chakra.,9435.0.html

4) Summoned biju will not willfully transfer chakra to any of the summoner's allies, and moves to take it by force will result in the tailed beast resenting its summoner.,9436.0.html

5) The tailed beast must be "located" somewhere in the physical world when it is not summoned by the host; the beast cannot be in a pocket dimension while not summoned.,9437.msg236403.html#msg236403
