  1. Kyouraku Mansion

    By the time Metabee had returned it was already the middle of the evening. He was excited to hear what kind of progress Yoshirou and JDan made and what they were able to come up with but even more than that he was excited to tell them of his foundings. However, that excitement ddn't really show as he was simply tired. In the past 6 days he was busy day and night so he didn't actually get much sleep, causing bags to form under his eyes. Perhaps he would get some sleep tonight in preparation for their real training the next day. This time, he returned to the Mansion with two suitcases which contained his things. Not wanting to carry them around, the Captain headed straight for his room. As he entered the room, the bed instantly look captivating to him but there were still some things that he had to do before he could sleep. One of those things was unpacking. He started with the smaller of the two suitcases which contained some spare clothes that he sorted out and put into the wardrobe while the underwear went into the drawers. Next was the suitcase which contained decorations for his room. He started by putting some pictures on his desk and then moved onto the books that he brought. The first two shelves would have knowledge books which would help anyone learn a bit about fighting or some general matters like other races and their realms, he tried to bring as wide variety as he could. The other two shelves he filled with normal books that could be used to simply pass the time. All the shelves were sorted in alphabetical order to make things easier to find. To finish up, Metabee closed the two suitcases up and stashed them under his bed. He let out a sigh and massaged his nose bridge as a knock came on the door so he went to get it. Upon opening it he saw Yoshirou as his face showed disappointment,'Oh, its you. I thought it was the pizza delivery guy but it seems my hopes have been ruined,' he said to tease him. The Captain stretched out his hand for a handshake as he grinned,'Come in. It's time to catch up.' OOC: where are the treats Yoshi!

    Once he finished his dinner, Yoshirou showed him where to put to trash since this hall was different from the previous one they used. The Noble then said that actually before going to sleep he still had some more work to do. Both him and JDan seemed very passionate and motivated about their work compared to Metabee who would prefer to just go to sleep and leave it for the next day. Yoshirou then extended his hand for a handshake and teased him more but also said a goodbye in case they wouldn’t see each other. Metabee shook his hand,’Aww, how cute. Want me to give you a plushie of me so that it keeps you company? I’ll try to be back as soon as I can.’ After this, the two split up and headed in their own directions. The Captain headed straight for his room where he had a proper shower and went to bed. The next morning, after breakfast was over and done with Metabee left for the Kido Corps. Since he didn’t bring anything on they way here he didn’t have to carry any sort of luggage but he will definitely return with some sort of decorations for his new room at the mansion. Once he arrived everyone knew of his presence as he quickly set things in motion and mobilised everyone in the training grounds. First, he had to explain what had happened in Rukongai with Monk and then Sama’el which lead on to the current threat that loomed before them. This meant that they had to train to make sure their skills were top notch. With all the other Captains absent it fell to Yoshirou and Metabee to unite the Gotei 13, or at least as much as possible. In terms of training, the first day was the slowest as Metabee had to organise everyone and see their strengths and weaknesses to decide on how to approach this best. After analysing everyone, he put them into groups where each group trained something specific and had a senior member looking over them. There was no time to learn something new so instead it was best to hone what they were already best at. That way on the battlefield everyone will have something that they excel at and will be able to support other teams that are not so good at that particular thing. The training for the first day quickly came to an end but Metabee the work was far from over. First, he met up with Sayuri to inform her of his decision about the fight and then he had wanted to discuss their relationship which ultimately ended up in them splitting ways. His next destination was the Kido Corps library where he picked up a stack of books and delved in hoping to find something of use but time was limited so no results were found. The next day, the same pattern occurred where he trained the Kido Corps members by day but by night he was doing his own research. The members seemed to have a slight improvement from the previous day which is exactly what he wanted. If they trained like this every day for two weeks then the slight improvements would add up to something substantial which will increase their chances by ever so slightly. This continued until the 4th day when Metabee didn’t come to the training but instead decided to head for Squad 5 and 9 barracks. These were two Squads that had close ties with the Kido Corps so they were his best bet. His reason for going there was to gather more forces. He told them of the threat before them in the same way that he told his own members. In the end, he managed to convince the elite and senior members to join them in the battle and to start their own preparations. However, that was not all as his next destination was the Squad 13 barracks. Although they weren’t really affiliated, Squad 13 was the one that Yoshirou used to be a Captain of so he figured getting help from them would be easier. He told them what their previous Captain was up to and that he needed help in the upcoming battle against the forces of Hell. Though this didn’t seem to make them any more less reluctant to help as there was no much meaning in fighting for someone that left them. This meant that he had to use his authority as the Kido Corps Captain and the Advisor to Kyoraku in order to rally some forces. In the end, from the 3 Squads they would be getting around 200 or so members to fight with them which in terms of their forces was quite a big improvement. Especially so, when he was aiming for quality over quantity so this could be considered quite a big success. However, in terms of creating a new Kido Metabee was no further than when he started and he was running out of material that he could reach out to, perhaps there used to be more but with the barracks destroyed a lot of it was burnt. On the fifth day, he decided to change his thinking a bit. No Kido creation process would be the same so they had to tailor it to this particular one. First, he reviewed what they knew and looked to what clues they had. His biggest clue was actually JDan. He mentioned that when he tried to encase his Zanpakuto in his new element it failed every time but when he did it with his body it succeeded. Why? He thought about it and reviewed what he knew about energy types and then the answer quickly became clear. The Captain quickly confirmed this with his Zanpakuto and it seemed that he was correct. Metabee finally found a solution that would help them have a breakthrough. The sixth day was when the one week deadline was for Yoshirou and JDan which meant that he had to go back to the Kyoraku Mansion. However, he definitely wouldn’t be leaving empty handed as his time away proved to be quite fruitful so it wasn’t time wasted. Looking back, it seemed that he achieved quite a lot in the short span of six days so he definitely felt a sense of pride. With the training finished for the day, Metabee packed some things that he would take with him and left for the Kyoraku Mansion once again, where he arrived in the middle of the evening.

    After Metabee told the two of his decision about Sayuri, Yoshirou told him off for his mindset. He did understand as he told him off for the same thing this very morning,'We shouldn't, but the thought is at the back of everyone's mind. It's unavoidable. Besides, even strength wise she's not ready to face the Tsumikami.' Even if the he was to survive perhaps he would leave it to her either way. The Captain still wasn't sure what he will do once it is over, but he did have a few options in mind. They had a brief moment of silence as they simply enjoyed their meal. Metabee asked if they had any questions but nothing came up,'Well, we'll keep in contact daily anyway so we'll solve things as they come up.' With their discussion finished and dinner too JDan declared that he will be going on ahead and going for a patrol of the premises. They saw him off and quickly there was only two of them left. Yoshirou was the second to finish his dinner which only left Metabee, who was taking his time with the sushi which was by far his favourite out of todays meal. Once he was done he drank it down with some water and was also officially finished with the dinner. Soon after, the Noble suggested that they turn in for the night and the Captain nodded. It was a particulalry exhausting day for him and JDan so they needed their rest and Metabee wanted to catch up on the sleep that he missed the previous night so it seemed a good point to finish up. Metabee would clean after himself before they would head off to their rooms to sleep. OOC: good to know...
  4. Kyouraku Mansion

    In between the talking Metabee would eat and someone else would take the turn to talk. JDan reassured him that he will keep trying to find out more about his discovery. The Captain then informed the two that he will be leaving to sort out the Kido Corps which Yoshirou quickly accepted and offered help,'Sure, thanks. I don't think we will be doing anything complicated though and just simply buffing up our ranks.' The Noble also told him to give Sayuri his regards and wished her all the best,'I will. Though I don't think I will allow her to participate in this coming battle. If I am to die then there needs to be someone suitable to replace me and lead the Squad. Nonetheless, it will still be hard on her.' JDan then asked if he will be leaving tonight but Metabee shook his head,'No, it's better if I leave in the morning. If I left now nothing can be done at this hour anyway so I prefer to stay the night and gather my thoughts.' While these two would be catching up to him, he will not completely put aside the Kido and instead use the opportunity to browse the Kido Corps library more in hopes of finding some sort of clues or tips. Yoshirou reassured him that he will not slack off as their future depended on the effort that they put in now. The Captain nodded,'So, concerning the Kido I think that should be it unless you want to discuss some specific points.'

    After stating his own progress for the day, the two were instantly impressed which made him chuckle. Compared to the Kido that they will be making this was just a small feat,’Thanks, though I’m sure you two will also be able to do this with ease. Without any sort of consequences perhaps. Even so, it’s a bit harder than it seems. A lot of the Kido’s are very similar so it’s hard to find one that will suit yourself. I’m interested to see which Kido’s you two will choose to customise.’ The last one to report his progress was JDan who seemed to have a small breakthrough by being able to channel the element through his body. This quite intrigued Metabee,’Hmm, that’s interesting. I’m not sure if that’s to do with your ‘use’ of the energy or is it something that’s worthy of being the incomplete version of the Kido. We will have to look into it more.’ If they find out something more then maybe they it will help them to find a way to continue overall. The Noble then stated his happiness that his idea would actually be becoming a reality, and at such a fast pace,’It was never impossible to begin with, just very hard to accomplish.’ The Captain continued with breaking up their process into stages. Since he was further ahead of the other two it meant that he had less things to do but he was still going to use that time wisely. Metabee spoke,’The Kyoraku have began their preparations and so the Kido Corps should too. I will be going back to the barracks for a day or two, maybe more, I don’t know yet. I need to tell them of the situation and guide them on how to prepare for the battle so I will train them a bit. I also have certains matters to discuss with Sayuri. This means that I won’t be present but that’s not an excuse to slack off. Most of this work is up to the individual anyway since the Kido will vary in form from person to person. If any problems come up you can contact me via Hell Butterfly and I’ll see what we can do.’

    They returned to the Mansion where they split up when they reached their own floor though their later destination was mutual. As time was short and everyone was hungry Metabee quickly sorted himself out with a quick wash and changed into the Shihakusho that he was given before heading off to the kitchen. Once they all arrived they walked in to see an empty room due to the fact that they came a bit later since they were busy. The maids served them promptly with their dinner which was much different to the day before. Every day had something on the menu that would still impress so it would be hard to get bored of such luxury. Yoshirou was the first to speak up as he told them what he did. His progress didn't seem like much so far but he found the path that he will follow so it was of great importance nonetheless. Metabee was the next to speak,'Well, I think that I have successfully customised two Kido's to my spiritual signature. They seemed to have changed appearance and properties at least but I didn't get to try it out on another living being yet so as for effects that's still unknown. However, it doesn't seem to be without it's consequences for me so I don't think I will be able to use this a lot in a real battle. I spent the rest of my time thinking of a way to carry forward but nothing came to mind so no breakthrough.' Then they waited for JDan's report and Metabee would continue,'Alright, so let's do it like this. Stage 1 is being able to gather the element you are using. Stage 2 is being able to manipulate and giving it a specific use. The third and final stage will be the Kido itself though it will have sub-stages as we are not likely to get the final result straight away. Since my element is darkness I have already mastered stage 1 and 2 so that's your objective by the end of the week and then we will carry forward with stage 3 together.'
  7. Kyouraku Mansion

    By the time Metabee reached JDan, a helping hand was no longer needed. He defnitely seemed to feel proud of himself and said that he will give them a run for his money. The Captain let out a laugh,'I will be looking forward to when that happens.' If they were to die on the battlefield then JDan would probably left to keep the Clan going so he had to become strong. He had to be able to surpass them. JDan still definitely had more room to improve so that means that he hasn't completely tapped into his full potential. The two then walked over to Yoshirou who had come back to the present. With the amount of time he was meditating for it couldn't have been normal meditation which meant that he must have been in his Inner World which explained why he was so tired. The Noble took his hand and got to his feet before agreeing with him. He suggested that they should talk about their day over dinner, once they have freshened up a little,'Sure. Can't discuss important matters on an empty stomach after all.'
  8. Kyouraku Mansion

    Metabee looked on as he waited for the two to finish up with their training. The first one to call it a day seemed to be JDan who actually had some sort of breakthrough before he expended the last of his energy for the day. The Captain walked up to him and offered him a hand,'Good work today. Keep it up and you might be the first to complete the Kido.' He said this sincerely as JDan was by far the person who worked the hardest today. Perhaps he even had a glimpse of a level that Metabee hasn't reached yet. This left them with Yoshirou being the only one who was still training. Since he was meditating they couldn't really interrupt him so their only choice was to wait. Soon enough, the Noble opened his eyes so the two approached him. Once again, Metabee offered a helping hand,'Come on, let's finish up here. If we overexert ourselves we will be slumped for the remaining days.' Pacing was important in this type of task. All of them were eager for results but if they damaged their bodies then it would only delay their goal so they had to keep a healthy physical and mental balance. Training was important but so was rest and now this would be their time of rest. The day was coming to an end so all that was left for them to do was to have dinner and then relax before the new day would start and their training would continue.
  9. Kyouraku Mansion

    Having finished what he wanted to do for the day, Metabee had no other choice but to wait for the other two to finish. He looked around to where they were and saw how they were doing. Yoshirou was still in the same spot as he started it. The Noble was still meditatiing and it looked like he hasn't moved a single milimetre,'Maybe he was meditating for so long that he fell asleep.' Although they got enough sleep to recover their energy they weren't fully rested after the previous day and especially when it came to their mental side. Next, he looked to what JDan was doing. The Head of Security actually looked like he was the one that was putting the most effort into this, even on the first day. Perhaps he didn't feel adequate since he wasn't on their level. This made him work even harder to try to prove his worth to them. However, to them it didn't matter how strong or how weak he was, they accepted him all the same. Besides, in the case of creating a new Kido they were all equal. None of them had done something like this before and equally struggled, though at different stages. Still this idea for a new Kido seemed pretty crazy and such ideas would always come from Yoshirou. He let out a sigh,'What a bother.' Metabee still didn't know what he was planning either but his recent talk of making a will and leaving a legacy meant that he was going to sacrifice himself. This meant that this Kido might be the last gift that he would give to his clansmen. However, he didn't want that. He wanted to find a way that wouldn't sacrifice anyone. This seemed like the biggest threat to Soul Society and all the other races so perhaps after this was over both of them will be able to retire and lead a simple peaceful life. This was what he hoped for.
  10. Kyouraku Mansion

    Metabee was deep in thought as he ran many simulations in his head about how to proceed with this Kido. However, none of them seemed very viable and so he didn't make any progress. Even with his extensive knowledge of Kido he couldn't get anywhere which proved how big of a challenge this particular Kido would be. He was suddenly impressed by the first generation of Shinigami. The person who was able to create a 100 Hados and Bakudos must have been a real genius to create techniques that would be used for all eternity and were highly accessible to everyone. The Captain opened his eyes and let out a sigh. It seemed he wouldn't ever be getting on that level. He was no genius. He was just an average man that had suffered at the hands of fate. Metabee then got to his feet and thought about what to do next. The other two were training intensely so at least they were making some progress. Three heads would definitely be better than one but for that it was better to wait. He didn't want to pressure them even more when they haven't even reached that stage and wanted them to solely focus on what they were doing. It was then that he felt the time come to a stop. Everything froze in place while only his time continued. Black flames appeared in front of him with a big yellow smile on their face,'You want more power, do you? Alas, power always comes with a price, one that you will have to pay. You know what you must do.' The flames laughed,'Sit upon the throne and succumb to the darkness! Whether you gain power or lose your sanity, well that's another matter!' The black flames spoke with a mocking tone as they took pleasure in seeing him suffer. Metabee frowned,'You would like that wouldn't you,' he said so before drawing his Zanpakuto and attacking the flames. However, it was to no effect as the Zanpakuto simply went through but the flames burst causing him small burns. The black flames then reached out their hands for Metabee's throat as they began strangling him and burning him,'Foolish mortal! I will return and only then will you know the true meaning of despair!' However, after saying so the flame quickly disappeared and time continued to flow. Last time it mentioned that it was weak so it probably couldn't materialise for long. Either way, the Captain wouldn't listen to it and healed himself. There must be another way and he would find that way. He wasn't planning on doing all this just to sacrifice himself. He wanted to protect this place and create a better future. Thinking about preparations, the Kyoraku were preparing but what about the Kido Corps? He had to give them a warning too and let them make their own preparations. The more they trained the less lives they would lose. That's why Metabee decided that tomorrow he would be going back to the barracks and set things in motion for his squad.
  11. Kyouraku Mansion

    To test the results of this training Metabee would have to wait until the other two are done and use them as guinea pigs. Perhaps after he shows them they will get their own ideas how to enhance the Kidos to fit with their spirit signature and fighting style. They would probably be able to achieve it at this point but the training they are currently going through would definitely help them so once again the other two would require great patience and determination. Being done with the Sekiention the Captain would move onto another Kido. This time he was going to use another Bakudo as well since they seemed the easiest to work with. He decided to work with Hainawa so he followed the same process as before. First, he imagined a circle which quickly blackened and set alight with purple flames as soon as he gathered dark spirit energy. Metabee then released the Kido and quickly noticed the change of properties. The first was once again the change of colour as the rope was now black in colour with a dark purple outline. The other change was the range of the Kido because the distance it reached seemed to be very limited. The Captain swung it a few times in many different directions to be able to control it like a whip as it was the perfect length. However, once again he wasn't able to tell the effects of this enhanced Kido unless he had a test subject. The Kido faded away and soon after Metabee felt something running down his nose so he quickly inspected it and noticed blood. He wasn't really known to be the type of person to get nosebleeds so it must be the side effects of this training. Darkness was often considered a double edged blade. It was very rare that someone could wield darkness without any sort of repercussions unless there was no other hope for them and darkness was their only saving grace. This meant that he probably had a limited amount of uses of such Kido and only use them if he was certain that they would bring him an advantage. That's why he decided to stop here for now and instead started to meditate though it might be called counter productive. Many people meditated to clear their head of thoughts but this time Metabee did it in order to organise his thought and think even more about the ways they can proceed with this Kido.

    There doesn't seem to be a template for the URP Hollows so you can just look how others have done theirs to give you an idea what one should include. You could use the ORP template since they are pretty similar and then just add any extra information you wish to mention. Though in the URP you don't have a sentence restriction so you can write as much as you want or as little as you want. However, do remember that the more details you put the better we will get to know your character and will be able to help you improve as you progress.
  13. Greetings Spirit People

    Well, before you get into the RP you should be aware of the options you have. On this site we've got two types of RP: one is the Official Role Play(ORP) and the other is the Unofficial Role Play(URP). What's the difference? The ORP is regulated by moderators who make sure that your character and his abillites adhere to rules so make sure to read through all the rules first so that you know what you can do and can't do. The template you posted is from the ORP so to answer your question, yes you can stop at the class and fill out the abilities after you actually have them figured out. From what I remember, there aren't really any standard hollow powers until you become an Adjuchas which is when the abilities come into play. Your other option is the URP which isn't as strict because it doesn't really have rules and isn't moderated but it falls upon you to make sure that the way you roleplay is fair and not overpowered. In the URP an application isn't necessary but it sure does help because you plan out your character and it also helps other roleplayers to see what your character looks like, some of his backstory of personality.
  14. Kyouraku Mansion

    The three knew what they had to do so Metabee gave some last tips before they began. The first to leave was Yoshirou and then JDan who also left after giving a short reply of which the contents were expected. The Captain also chose a spot for himself and began his own training. Since he was going to customise a Kido then he had to work with one that was already created rather than making one from scratch which was much simpler. However, the problem was once again how to give the Kido the desired effect. If he was going to customise a Kido he would have to cast it with dark spirit energy but using a high level Kido with the latter would put a great strain even on the Kido Captain. This meant that he had to stick to the lower level Kido though that wasn't such a bad thing per se. Even a low level Kido could become lethal in the hands of a master and so Metabee started thinking of the Kido that he can work with to achieve blindness but that proved harder than he thought. The low level Hado were sparse and didn't feel like they would suit the job so he thought about the Bakudo which also didn't show much potential as they seemed very situational. The Captain let out a sigh but then an idea came to mind. If he was going to cause blindness or 'obscuring sight' then one Bakudo fit that job perfectly. It didn't have much combat use and he himself hasn't used it much in the past as it didn't really fit his fighting style. Perhaps now it would provide more use. Metabee cast a Sekiention causing red smoke to spread out from the ground and cover the close vicinity. It blocked the line of sight but it served no protection whatsoever and against a strong opponent the user would be found pretty easily. However, what if this smoke was to have other properties rather than to be a nuisance? It could prove useful even in close combat. He waited until the smoke dispersed and then focused himself. This would be a bit different to what he normally does as his weapons were made around him but to use a Kido one must channel the energy through his own body. To use a Kido newbies were usually given the mental image of a circle or a pool of water and lunging yourself or the energy at it. The Captain began gathering dark spirit energy as he himself prepared this very mental image. However, in the next moment the image involuntarily changed to that of the circle blackening as if it was infected with some sort of disease while the circumference started burning with a small purple flame. It was like some sort of evil energy was begging to be released into the world. Metabee didn't wait any longer as he put out his right hand and used the Kido causing black smoke to erupt from him. He carefully inspected the Kido and the clear difference was the colour of the smoke but he didn't feel any special effects from it. He didn't know it if was because he was immune to said effects or was it because his attempt failed. The only way to find out would be to use it on someone else so once the smoke dispersed he looked for a live specimen but it was to no avail as the training grounds were specifically isolated so that their training would be undisturbed. The Captain let out a sigh as it only meant his results would be delayed.
  15. Kyouraku Mansion

    After Metabee told the Noble that he should get enough sleep he teased him so the Captain would tease back,'I prefer to be called daddy.' However, in the end he agreed that sleep was important to ones performance. He then reassured him about the situation in Rukongai which seamed to ese his mind. They had a lot of things to think about but in order to be able to continue creating this Kido a clear mind was required. Once again JDan seemed to be happy to be able to continue his duties and then they confirmed their next course of action. Metabee made a declaration and announced a deadline of two weeks. The two listened carefully but were not intimidated by the deadline, instead they were even more enthusiastic about it. It all started just as a one off request but now it was something that they needed for the upcoming battle,'I say, ideally the second week would be for fine tuning the Kido and working out the small details so aim to get to that level by then.' Yoshirou stated that first he needs to work out his preferred element as they just happened to use lightning,'That's right. Using the wrong element will make it so much harder so your first step is to figure that out.' On the other hand, it was pretty clear that JDan's element would be earth as the tree itself stated,'It really suits you. In my mind earth has more defensive uses but like they say the best defense is the best offense so I want you to start thinking how you could apply that to yourself.' Metabee then let the two begin their training while he himself walked away a bit further away from them. It was a training that required a lot of concetration so he didn't want to disturb them. Satisfied with the distance, the Captain let out a sigh. In terms of training, he was already a few steps ahead of the two. They would find it a bit harder due to the natures of their Zanpakuto's but those who already had an affinity to an element would find this training a bit easier as they could probably pass the first two steps with no problems. Metabee's Zanpakuto element was darkness so that was the element he had an affinity to and wouldn't sense any other element. He focused himself and gathered dark spirit energy into his right hand causing a small purple flame to appear. His application was also already clear as well as a saber was created in his hand. It was something that he had really struggled with in the beginning but now it was second nature to him. So while the two caught up to him he would focus his attention elsewhere. The Captain remembered how Yoshirou talked about changing the properties of Kidos with their spiritual signature if they fired it from their Zanpakuto but maybe it was much simpler than that. So his task for the day was to modify some Kidos and change their properties to darkness and give them additional effects. The first one he will start with was blidness.
