Hello again everyone! I've made the appropriate changes to the tree (it now ramps up the predetermined attack and has a defensive lvl2 technique) as well as added some to it. The costs for both Ki as well as MK are quite high, but as previously stated a technician using this will not spend DP on attack/defense.
This is a tree invented by ancient Shivatese monks which considered the body weak and sought a superior way to fight. Coming from a long tradition of perfecting the connection between ones body and soul they came to the conclusion that ones body was only a poor vessel for ones soul, and by giving this soul a shape with your ki you could achieve incredible results.
Techniques: 8 (so far), Total MK: 570 (so far)
SOUL STRIKE //This one remained the same, in fact all the lvl1 were left unchanged
The "common" offensive technique of the school. An opaque image of the users own soul emerges from within him to leap forward and attack his enemies.
Effects: Predetermined attack (240), Long-distance attack (15ft, double the users prescence plus his power as damage), Capable of damaging energy
DEX 7 / POW 7 / WP: 7
HEART SHIELD // Same
By imbuing his immediate surrounding with his ki the user creates a vibrating field around himself where bits and pieces of see-through humans seem to appear and dissapear almost randomly. This is in fact a way of defence where the users own spirit takes command over this energy-shield.
Effects: Predetermined defence (240), Energy shield (300 LP, regenerates 100 LP per turn)
Advantages: Decreased ki cost (1), Maintainable
DEX 10 (3 maint.) / POW 9 (3 maint.) / WP 9 (3 maint)
SHUNPO // Same
Lightning step, the art of running away. Feeling threatened a user of Spirit Blade can temporarily displace his own body to become untouchable like that of a free spirit. Entering this form a simple energy-burst quickly transports the user out of harms way.
Effects: Automatic transportation (150ft), Intanglible
DEX 4 / POW 4 / WP 4
REIATSU PRESSURE // This one got an increase in attack
Inhaling, concentrating and gathering his strength the user stands motionless with his eyes closed. Multiple images of himself akin to those created by Soul Strike one after another appear around the user, standing in a protective circle. With one sudden motion all the spirit-images shoots outwards, striking into any and all victims chosen by the user, and shattering with tremendous force which sends their targets flying.
Effects: Predetermined attack (280), Area attack (80ft, target choice), Impact 14
DEX 12 / POW 13 / WP 12
TAMASHÍ CONTROL // As did this, the increase here is slightli higher considering you DO NOT want to miss with it
Guided by his inner focus the user lunges forward in an unarmed attack, not using the conventional Soul Strike. At the slightest hint of physical contact an image of the users spirit transfers from himself into his target, suppressing his own soul and assuming control over the poor victim.
Effects: Predetermined attack (320), Control (PhR 140, Touch)
Disadvantages: No damage
AGI 10 / DEX 16 / POW 16 / WP 16
VITAE SHIELD // This is a lvl2-version of Heart Shield for a better high-leveldefense as suggested by Elric
Essentially a more powerful version of the Heart Shield the Vitae Shield produces a practically impregneble defense. The air around the user seems like a vibrating mass of instantly appearing and disappearing opaque limbs, only the most formidable of opponents can even get close to a user with an active Vitae Shield.
Effects: Predetermined defence (320), Energy shield (500 LP, regenerates 250 LP per turn)
AGI 8 (maint 1) / DEX 15 (maint 5) / POW 15 (maint 5) / WP 15 (maint 5)
SPIRIT BOMB //This one became ridiculously exspensive and powerful, I'm thinking that maybe Camoflagued attack and predetermined attack(440) is a bit of an overkill when combined but at least the technique is really ultimate
This technique is the greatest offensive one of the whole school of the Spirit Blade, however, it is also their greatest secret. At the moment of execution an opaque soul-copy of the user attacks his foe, just like with Soul Strike. But, just as the unsuspecting adversary is about to defend himself, the copy bursts into a flowing mist of energy which seeps into the essence of the victim. Light cracks and scorch-marks begin to appear on his skin as the immense pressure destroys him from the inside and everything culminates into a bright pillar of soul-crushing light.
Effects: Camoflagued attack (320), Predetermined attack (440), Long distande attack (15ft, double the users prescence plus his power as damage), Damage multiplier (×4), Capable of harming Energy
Disadvantages: Exhaustion (-6 fatigue)
DEX 18 / STR 12 / POW 18 / WP 18
DO UNTO OTHERS //Another new addition, speaking of high-level-defences. I'm having problems coming up with a good name for it so any input is appreciated
The ultimate defence. Created in a vane attempt to quell the powers of the Aeons, which in the right hands it probably could. During its excecution the user slowly steps up towards his adversary, closing his eyes and striking out with his hands to his sides as if to embrace his impending death. A multitude of spectre-like copies of the user seem to desperatly escape from his body but are all snapped back in. Then as the user is struck the specters, together with the attack, dissapears. Where it a fireball it would be as though it never existed, where it a blade his foe would find it gone. Silence befalls the battlefield. And a second later thousand of these spectral images pour out of the users body and together form their own sinister version of what was thrown the users way. The ultimate counter-attack.
Effects: Predetermined defence (440), Area block (300ft), Attack mirroring (with all the esoteric effects)
AGI 10 / DEX 15 / POW 15 / WP 14
At first I thought of having the last one be maintained but the costs were ASTRONOMICAL.
