1 pointAs Metabee spoke, Yoshirou seemed to quickly understand what he was trying to convey but none of the two could be completely certain as to what would happen. Once again, they weren't left with much choice apart from simply trying it out or finishing the Kido and then make the small improvements. With that, the topic about their Kido seemed to finish here as they moved onto other things. The Noble told him that he didn't miss out much the previous night as he simple did paperwork until late while JDan didn't have anything more interesting to add to that. Metabee answered with an 'I see,' and then told his side of the things which impressed the other two, but if they saw the state he was in just before doing that then they surely wouldn't be as impressed, though they wouldn't find out about that to begin with. He didn't know how much the other factions have prepared so far, if at all but he really felt like they were making a lot of progress on their side. While it wasn't perfect, things seemed to be coming out really well. To add to this Yoshirou informed them of the research they have done on the Sekkiseki stone and how it could be used to immobilise immortal beings which is where their problem lay as even if they were to clash head to head with the enemy army they would not die. One possible solution that the Noble came up with was to seal the strongest enemies in the Muken which truly be an effective way to get rid of them. Yoshirou believed it to be possible but whether it was probable was something that all three wondered about. Ultimately, the two ended up looking to him for input. Metabee thought about it briefly,'Possible, theoretically it certainly is. Probable, I would say not. The first issue is that we simply do not have the access to the Muken. There is no Captain Commander that would have at least some access and there is no Central 46 to give us access either. If we want to get ourselves in we would have to quite literally break in. The second point is that we do not have a way to directly seal them either so the only method would be to teleport them using forbidden Kido. However, even if they are in the Muken then if they are not sealed properly then there is quite a high risk of them breaking out or escaping through means of suicide. Also we do not know if the gates of Hell will still force them back even if they are sealed.' It was definitely a good suggestion but as of now it had too many uncertainties to it to be used. They didn't have many options on dealing with it and were open to propositions and Metabee just had that sort of proposition in his mind. The Captain smirked slightly,'But you are quite wrong about their immortality. They can and will die. We will use precisely that against them. Just like us the Togabito experience death but they will come back. Just like us their forces will diminish as the battle goes on. Even if they come back it will not be instant. It will take some time for them to respawn and they will do so in Hell. For some this will take hours, but others days or even months. If you look at it from that perspective it is not as bad as it seems. We will have to find as many ways as we can to kill a large number of them before the initial close combat starts and then we will use that delay against them to make our push. Remember our objective is not to destroy Hell but to repel their forces. One way to win a war is to kill the other general. We will do just that. While our forces push them we will go after their leaders and kill of them. In the end, the majority of them are immortal bandits that are subjugated by a leader so if we get rid of them their strategy will also fall apart. However, no matter what unless we kill Baal then we will not win.'
1 pointMetabee stated his thoughts on the Noble’s concerns, helping to put his worries at ease. Both him and JDan were confident that they were doing things the way it was meant to be. Besides Metabee had a good point. Just because it works a certain way for completed Kido techniques didn’t mean that it worked the same for creating them. The Advisor’s points were valid and most likely true; besides creating an experimental technique empowered by its name was hazardous. “You have valid points,” responses Yoshirou. “I guess my concerns were more hypothetical than concrete but it was reassuring to get you guys’ opinion.” Besides speculating there was nothing more they could do so the conversation progressed. “You mean after the Trials?... Well, I can’t speak for JDan but you missed out on a hell of a good time with me! I had a mountain of paper work that I went a few rounds with. Unfortunately I conceded the battle after a few hours though; it wasn’t pretty,” Yoshi answered with a dash of Meta’s humor. “After that I gave our other guests a small tour but nothing too exciting as it was already very late.” JDan couldn’t help but chuckle a little at Yoshi’s revelation. “A few hours huh, you sure?” he says teasingly. “I don’t remember staring at a clock so who knows,” Yoshirou replies with a smirk. JDan had nothing eventful to report so Meta filled in the silence. “Impressive,” blurts out JDan. “My thoughts exactly,” adds Yoshi. “You’re never one to disappoint that’s for sure.” At this rate and with a little luck, although Commander-less and Captain-less, the entire Gotei might stand on a united front before any serious events with Hell could occur. “Guess now is a great time to mention one of the research reports that came across my desk concerning Sekkiseki stone. Their goal is, to not only to improve upon its already incredible effects and durability, but to make it more versatile as well. Ideally it would make for great restraints against enemies that can’t permanently die.” “You mean Sinners,” says JDan. “Precisely,” states Yoshirou. “I’ve been thinking for a while now about an offensive that could have lasting effects against an immortal foe. Unfortunately I didn’t come up with very many ideas. In fact there was only one that seemed viable and that is to bind and seal them away in the Muken. I don’t mean all of them but definitely Sama’el and whoever else will lead the charge against us. Now, I know its still not a permanent fix for Hell but it’s a solution to our current woes with them.” JDan listened with surprise, as it was the first he was hearing about any of this as well. “Is such a thing even possible?” “Possible…” Yoshirou shrugs his shoulders. “Possible, yes I believe so. Probable, now that’s the million dollar question.” They both looked to Metabee to get his input or ideas if any on the matter.
