    Akira would have had to been vice captain before Takeo (the last 2nd division captain) because h became captain right after the captain before him died. I suppose he could have been VC for a short time, but that doesn't go well with his laziness and inability much. -shrugs-

    When Akira was sent off for her 100 year mission, presumably there must be a shift in the chain of command in order to ensure that there are no long term gaps troubling the entire hierarchy. So yeah it is within reason that Takeo stayed as VC for a short time when Akira had to leave.

    And bro, you've got a response yet to give for Adam vs Alexander.

    Okay, a clarification on how the conversation shield works: it does not silence the area contained within. Instead, it causes people outsides to hear a conversation from the inside that matches up with their expectations and makes the group seem uninteresting. Misaki, for instance, listening to the conversation, would hear perfectly reasonable explanations for everything weird she had seen. I apologize for not making this clear.

    AnimeKid, I believe this affects you too.

    Oh yeah tgva I was thinking on something. Basically It was an ability I was thinking of giving Chase. It's not too game braking and the only reason I wanted it was because I was recently watching Naruto and I remembered how awesome Asuma's trench knives are. Basically it would be that Chase's reiatsu reacts positively to weapons, putting them in tune with his body and making him wield them like a pro. You think that others would go for this? It could even be classified under his weapon wield ability.

    I don't know about TGVA, but I would STRONGLY advise against taking anything from Naruto if you value your continued existence.

    I know that originality is subjective, but are you sure you aren't able to squeeze even a little bit of original writing out of your characters?

    The reiatsu weapon thing is original I got to thinking about it because of the trench knives. Also I was just going to use trench knives and mabye a few other weapons not an ability from naruto.

    Um, I'm not really any authority on such things. Ask the Central 5 if you want an authority, or just ask the OoC in general.

    I am a believer that unless you think it will add significant role playing opportunities in the future, don't add it to an already existing character.

    In terms of the ability, I don't really understand how you expect this to work. As an inanimate object, a weapon has no special qualities for a reiatsu to "attach" to. Unless it's a special weapon, like a Shinigami Zanpakuto, "connecting" your reiatsu with it probably wouldn't do anything but make the weapon hits stronger. Considering we already have 2 characters who are focused on a "jack of all weapon trades" idea, maybe you should stick with your already existing niche.

    Edit: As much a fan as I am from taking material from other series, I'd appreciate it if you did spend time focusing on the 4 characters you've already created for this series in terms of character development, not power development. Powers are actually much less interesting than personalities.

    Plus, that's kinda EXACTLY what Kazuma's Zanpakutou already does in a sense.

    AFTER INTENSE, GRUELING TRAINING, which included, I kid you not, wearing a freaking vest made out of Sekkiseki so it'd weight him down all day and he'd have to use his Reiryoku wisely just to get through the day.

    Not that I expected you to have readed through nearly 120 pages to know that, but still.

    I'm going to give you a thought exercise. I want you to pick every ability from every single source you've ever seen, read or heard about.

    And then I want you to imagine something completely different. It has to be a single ability.

    Then, I want you to imagine, at the very least, three uses for it.

    And finally, I want you to imagine a restriction that may or may not apply to it.

    Go.

    EDIT: Purely elemental-themed abilities are out.

    Just some friendly advice which you can chuck out if you don't like them.

    While it is true that a character is made interesting because he has interesting powers and skills, those powers and skills are not what makes up a character.

    A character can have personality/fate/destiny/racial/national/whatever theme-based powers. But again those powers do not define a character, they only serve to reinforce what a character already is.

    Successful characters, those that endure in the world of anime/fiction are those who are personalities before being avatar of powers. Naruto is endearing because of how his childhood made him into a person he is today. It has less to do with holding a 9-tailed fox inside him, or that spammy Rasengan moves he keeps pulling off.

    Ichigo isn't popular just because he carries a BFS and fires megaton blasts of energy. He is who he is because of his family tragedy and his interaction with his family members and friends.

    So before you start making a character by running to the superpowers Wal-mart and start making China knock-offs, do spend some time thinking about what sort of person you are crafting before you add appropriate powers to them. This way, they feel more alive and responsive than just being power-holding shells of pitiful character building excuses.

    In addition, powers typically have some sort of impact on someone's everyday life, for good or for worse. Having powers that no one does, by itself, is already plain weird, which could manifest into any number of personality traits. Some powers just plain screw with your head (Shinigami are textbook headcases. They have almost literally power-giving IDs that turn into swords).

    One way I usually work to create a character is to give him or her motivation first. What drives someone, and how, is often the cornerstone upon which one's personality is built.

    Look dude, you provide some funny IC moments, don't godmode or murder grammar and capitalization, and that's great. But your character-building skills could use some work. If you're willing to listen, we're willing to give you a few tips. I'm sure with some time spent brainstorming, you could come up with some seriously cool characters. It's not an easy process to learn, but I think you can do it.

    Okay then, I was getting bored anyway. Oh yeah when doing stuff like this I tend to forget the rules of science. So if I unintensionally fail Biology/Physics/Any Science Forever please tell me. Hmm how about

    Kinetic build up and release

    By making the simplest of motions the user of this power stores a portion of the kinetic energy they create. They can choose to release this energy at any time they desire at a later time

    Use 1: Using built up energy from the motions they have been making the person can let loose a burst of kinetic energy from the hands and with practice other parts of the body for an offensive attack

    Use 2: By channeling the energy they have stored the person can and send the energy steadily to another part of their body. Ex channeling the energy steadily to the feet for increased speed or to the arms for rapid fire punches.

    Use 3: By using the built up energy the person using this power can send the kinetic energy into an object or person and rapidly vibrate their molecules. Depending on the rate of the vibrations the objects/people will either heat up rapidly to insane temperatures or if high enough vibration is present simply fall apart

    restriction: This ability is NEVER able to be turned off. This means that the person with this power will always store kinetic energy. This also means that they will HAVE to let of a burst of kinetic energy every now and again lest they become overcharged with energy and burst.

    Hows this?

    also thx guys. I'm willing to listen if your willing to put up with the fact that sometimes I regress and am a slow learner. I do try my best to learn.

    Well, it's great that you're willing to listen, at the very least.

    That sounds a lot like Reiatsu, except motion-related. Also, it sounds a bit like Speedball's power from the New Mutants, but I could be wrong (I get the nagging feeling I've seen it before).

    That restriction doesn't sound like a restriction, but rather a boon to the power. Kinetic energy, by definition, is invisible, so he could discharge it in imperceptible ways. Unless he's got something akin to Power Incontinence, it doesn't really get in the way of his everyday life.

    It was a good effort, nonetheless.

    Now do it again.

    Abilities are actually a fairly simple exercise when you think about it. You need to think in terms of how they affect the world, and how deeply. (Flames consume oxygen, for example, but a lighter-sized flame will consume a lot less than a bonfire.)

    Some abilities are more or less suited to some people than others. A freezing power that works only by keeping oneself calm is useless for a hothead, for example.

    Kuroimaken, I think he would profit more by stepping away from creating power concepts first to focus on creating character concepts.

    Kid, you can have a small exercise based on the character registry thread. Look at the characters written so far, see if you can come up with a 50 word summary of a character's personality, whether based on their past or not. You can overshoot that 50 word limit, its fine. Just ignore the powers section.

    The purpose of this exercise is after roughly 5 maybe 10 characters later, I hope you can stumble onto really well-written characters that grab your attention. Once that happens, use the summaries you've written and find out what aspects of the character attract you to them. Was it because they have a colorful past? Was it because the characters react really differently despite being through a lot?

    Stuff like that. I want you to expose yourself to organic characters, people that you think can exist in the real world, before you come and focus on how to write powers, those are really really secondary compared to character-making.

    Can't say you don't have a good point, Nick. I was approaching the power angle first because it seemed to be the one that piqued his interest first; it's easier to work with what you're already interested in.

    I'll do you one better. When you write those summaries, under no circunstances are you to compare characters to other characters you've already seen in whatever media.

    Thanks. Okay then attempt #2


    Dimension Bubbles

    This power allows the user to summon dimensional bubbles that have a variety of uses. The power allows access to the infinite dimensions and acts as a crossing between them. The bubbles can also acts a portals to different parts of the same dimension. The bubbles range in size from basketball size for begginers to city sized for masters.

    Use 1: One use for the dimensional bubbles is fairly simple. By concentrating the user can materialize a dimensional bubble near and object or enemy and have it suck them into it and transport them to another dimension.

    Use 2: The use one power also works in reverse. It would allow the user to pull something from another (or the same) dimension to unleash upon an enemy. For example, got a nasty enemy that won't slow down for anything. Use your handy dandy powers to summon some oil and he'll be slipping all over the place.

    Use 3: This one is a bit trickier. The user can use his/her power to form two dimensional wormholes at once. This technique is rather brutal as anything caught in between the two will be violently ripped apart by the opposing forces trying force them into the opposite bubbles.

    Use 4: This power can also allow the user to store items and prisoners in pocket dimensions for holding. However for living beings they will still have to be fed and taken care of two survive.

    restriction: This power takes the utmost focus and visualization abilities to be used correctly. Losing concentration for even a second can result in you summoning an eldritch abomination from another dimension instead of a torrent of flame. A less severe and much more likely example is that instead of summoning a slab of rock from the Grand Canyon you will instead summon a great deal of the Pacific Ocean. Also to access specific things from other dimension you will have to at least somewhat explore them and find out what is in them. This brings up the issue of travel between dimensions which requires a lot of focus as well. However if you mess up you will wind up in a place you did not intend.

    EDIT: okay I've got time, I'll give your test a shot Nicklance.

    I met a girl with a really pensive look. I walk up to her, put a fifty cent coin in her hand, "For your thoughts. I know the going rate is supposed to be one, but I figure you play hardball."

    She gave it back, "Keep it. Pretty sure a guy with your charm can find a way to have them for free anyway."

    I think if you wanted to go extreme in comparisons, 90% of any super powers we could come up with have already been done somewhere, because the idea of super powers isn't one that we came up with, so when we think of examples we think of things we didn't come up with. It's hard to create anything totally new in a vaccuum. I mean, I don't think any of my characters are totally, completely unique power-wise.

    I agree that personality is way more important than powers. While it helps make a character memorable, an interesting power set doesn't make them particularly interesting on its own.

    Actually, I believe I haven't seen much of the power sets I've used for my characters... well, anywhere, with a few exceptions. Shishiou is possibly an exception, as I took the whole lightning on the head thing from Reborn's Sawada Tsunayoshi - that said, Tsuna's flaming forehead doesn't actually do anything except tell his enemies he's powered up or is going to use a certain move (something I never see them making use of against him). Subject 1864 is pretty standard gradual shapeshifting.

    You have to remember that some overlap with established powers from other characters will be inevitable at some point, because as you've noted, TGVA, the idea of superpowers isn't an original thought in and of itself. That said, even common powers can be given new interpretations. I particularly like what they did with it in Hunter X Hunter and Katekyoshi Hitman Reborn.

    The first one stablished specific categories for powers and power-building, with some hard limits that characters cannot cross, and establishing that a power needs to be restrictive in use to be great, whereas the second established a set of attributes most characters had innately that they had to contend with and learn how to use properly.


    EDIT: Which reminds me. I should look into the possibility of making HxH ITP or something.

    Okay here are some characters that I found interesting

    Zaraki Nasumi

    This character is interesting due to her personality. The fact is that is does not at all synch up with her past. She is utterly cheerful and had a family renounce her for being who she is. Yet she still finds it in her heart to continue her life of bliss and you can tell because she wears her heart on her sleeves. Most people who went through what she did would have closed themselves off as to not be hurt again. Yet she goes through life just as she always has. I personally find this interesting.

    Another I find interesting is Yukimura Seiko.
    He belonged to a noble family of at least some prestige. However where as most would just suck it up and try to please their parents Seiko practiced an art the wouldn't condone in secret and eventually struck out on his own as a shinigami. He opposed his family and kept standing up for his beliefs and didn't back down from them. He even somewhat deceived them which caused him to be disowned once they caught on. Though his lax attitude annoys others he is clearly anything but as shown by his struggles to follow his dream.

    One more is Yoshimoto Kina

    She has a past that is tear jerking to say the least. However one thing that stands out most in her story is her devotion. She vows that until she masters an art she has practically no talent in and that her father rejected in order for her to be born that she will not seek out her parents. Parents who she has not seen since childhood. She puts herself through heartache and who knows how much stress because she wants to make her grandfather proud and remain loyal to him and his ways. Her kindness and loyalty drawing her to friends that will help her along the way. Because of this she will go far because her loyalty to them will be repaid equally in kind.

    So. What does that initially tell you? Seems to me all these characters have a draw in common.

    It seems like they all overcome adversity whether internal or external. In the process they don't let it dramitically change them because they know who they are and are okay with that. They don't want to change because they don't have any reason to change. Just try harder, at least I think?

    I feel it's more like the level of adversity they face and the attitude they face it with are at odds. Granted, Kina is very shy about a number of things, but this is mostly from her grandfather's repression, and she's otherwise very brave, even if she doesn't realize it. Nasumi practically acts like the bad things she's been through didn't even happen to her. And Seiko deliberately acts like the opposite of what's expected of him. They're all either going through some character development now or slated for a measure of character development in the near future, too.

    Exploring this kind of conflict seems to be an enjoyable point for you. So take Jiro, for example: how does he work into something like that? Or rather, CAN he work with something like that?

    (Which reminds me, Kayne: if you want Seiko to talk to Kazuma about beating the everloving daylights outta Jiro that's fine by me.)

    huh never thought about it like that before. Okay then, so an example for Jiro could be like after the beat down from Kazuma. After his talk with Kazuma he realizes he doesn't have to be as loud as he usually is to get others to notice him. Nor does he have to be some fighting god. Those who create are remembered more than those who destroy. Now it's about finding out who and what he can be rather than just about gaining power.

    Like that?
