"All things in the universe turn to ashes! Ryujin Jakka!" Yammamoto said, releasing his shikai in a blast of flame that forced Torin to jump backwards or be incinerated instantly.
"Prepare yourself! Torin Inzanki! This is your final test!" Yammamoto said as he raised his blade over his head, then swung it down and sent a massive wave of flame at Torin
"tch..." Torin said as he used shunpo to dodge sideways, the flames obliterated most of a cliff that Torin had been standing in front of. "If I get hit by that..." Torin thought
"Grow, Kessho Satsujinsha!" he commanded as he drew his sword, he wasn't going to fight Yammamoto sealed, not for an instant. Torin began to shunpo around Yammamoto leaving afterimages of himself, he noticed that now that he had achieved bankai all of his abilities had grown far stronger, even when he wasn't in bankai, perhaps the time spent achieving it were to blame, maybe it was an automatic bonus to his power, he didn't know, but he was happy to have it in thi
Bleach Dark Dawn Ch15, The Young Captain RisesIt was about noon in the Soul Society, and in the Squad 3 barracks the entire squad was gathered together, they had been notified by their Lieutenant, Izuru Kira, that they had been assigned a new captain at long last, and they were eager to meet him, tales about him had already spread throughout the Soul Society, and as with all tales spreading far and wide, they were leading to some misconceptions about what he'd be like.Bleach Dark Dawn Ch15, The Young Captain Rises by cmd1095
"I wonder if he's as strong as Captain Ichimaru was" one man said
"Not sure, but I've heard stories about this guy, rumor has it that he obliterated an entire enemy battalion, commander and all" another replied
"that's all? I heard he was even stronger than that, I heard that he was so powerful, they moved him from just being a recruit to being a captain in just a few weeks!" yet another said
Kira walked in and stood at the front of the room, making everyone fall silent, the moment they were waiting for was close at hand
"Good afternoon everyone, I'm sure you all kn
Bleach Dark Dawn Ch16, ReunionIt had been several weeks since Torin had taken command of his new squad. After introducing himself to the squad and moving into his new quarters, he had begun familiarizing himself with the finer details of running a squad. There were promotions and demotions, creating patrol routes and deploying squad members, reading reports on missions, drafting documents for his new rukongai improvement initiative.Bleach Dark Dawn Ch16, Reunion by cmd1095
He’d been kept quite busy by it all, and in addition to that, Captain Unohana had been running him ragged with kido training. While he wasn’t as hopeless at it as he had first thought, most of his spells still found new and creative ways to fail spectacularly. At one point his byakurai spell had the form and properties of silly string, and neither he nor Unohana had any idea what he had done. It was clear that he was going nowhere fast in the art.
And finally, there was the mountains of files that had been piling up the entire time the squad had been without a captain to han
Bleach Dark Dawn Ch17, Protector? or Avenger?"Torin!" Aurora screamed as Torin's grip loosened and he began to slump to the ground. Torin only groaned in response as he held himself up on his knees. His backside looked like it had been grilled in a volcanic eruption. It was charred black, and smoke streamed from cracks in the skin that had formed when the superheated air had dehydrated it to the point of breaking apart before getting thoroughly toasted.Bleach Dark Dawn Ch17, Protector? or Avenger? by cmd1095
Torin weakly gestured behind him, alerting Aurora to the presence of their assailant. It was a male arrancar with jet black hair, a long crooked nose, and golden eyes with flecks of red in them. The man stood a shocking 11 feet tall, and wore a heavily modified uniform that only covered his shoulders and lower body, revealing a body so muscular it was monstrous. The man had a 12 pack and biceps the size of Torin's head. Aurora looked positively miniscule before the beast
The arrancar smirked, revealing a set of jagged teeth more suited to the mouth of a shark than that of a man. "

"Well? How is she?" Torin said as he burst into the waiting room in the 4th division HQ. Rida was sitting there already his head in his hands. Torin was wearing a standard patient's shirt and his own pants, he had the remains of an IV still taped to his arm and his zanpakto slung over his back. And it sounded like there was a brigade of nurses down the hallway following him
"They patched you up fast" Rida commented, noticing the obvious lack of injury on Torin "after the beating you took back there I figured you'd be on bedrest for a week"
Torin looked back down the hallway and casually closed and locked the door, then moved a couch in front of it.
"I see" Rida said, he would have laughed, but he wasn't in a very jovial mood.
"SO?" Torin asked "how is she?"
Rida shook his head "they don't know, they've managed to neutralize the poison and heal her external injuries, but she hasn't regained consciousness, it might just be exhaustion, or it might be the mental shock of her coming so clos

Rida searched for Torin for hours, but he was nowhere to be found. Rida checked everywhere he could think of, but Torin had clearly gone somewhere else in his flight from squad 4.
"Where could he have gone?" Rida said out loud as he stood in the middle of a street, it was still early morning, so not many people were around yet, that ruled out asking if anyone saw him, and letting out the news that a captain was missing was probably a bad idea anyway.
"If I had just suffered through serious emotional trauma, and then nearly killed my girl in a fit of rage without even knowing it where would I go?" Rida asked himself, still thinking out loud
"If it were me, I would probably go visit the graves of my friends" a woman said from behind Rida
Rida turned around, surprised, a man and a woman shinigami stood before him. The man had spiky red hair tied into a ponytail and had a lot of tattoos, the woman had black hair that was cut off at her shoulders and violet eyes. Both wore standard sh

Torin stepped into Aurora's room, followed by Rida. Aurora was in a standard hospital style nightgown, laying on her bed propped up by several snow white pillows. Hikari sat in a chair by the bed, and she didn't look too pleased about being made to wait for so long.
"About time you two showed up! I've been done for hours, I was starting to consider tracking you both down and dragging you here by your ears!" Hikari said, practically foaming at the lips as she stood and faced the two friends
"Sorry, I made myself difficult to find" Torin apologized
"And I'm a horrible tracker" Rida added
"Whatever" Hikari said "I'll leave you two to watch over her, try not to destroy the barracks this time."
With that Hikari vanished, leaving the trio alone together. Aurora moved her head to look at Torin and Rida. "So, let me guess, you two fought over something stupid, Hikari scolded you, Torin went to the rukongai to calm down and you got enlisted to track him down, that sound about right Rida?"

By the time Torin and Rida reached the gate, all hell had broken lose. Jidambo, the massive gorilla like man who usually guarded this gate, had somehow been defeated and hurled over the wall. Now he was unconscious on top of some buildings, his condition was bad, but not immediately life threatening. Shinigami were fighting outside the walls to take up the defense of the gate now, but it was clear that wasn't the main issue.
An explosion roared in Torin's ears and the ground shook. Small fragments of rock brok off from the wall and fell to the ground, barely even pebbles, but very concerning nonetheless
"Captain!" A shinigami said "thank goodness you're here! We can't hold out much longer!"
"Status report, now" Torin commanded, he knew if the walls of the sereitei were chipping then the situation was critical. The walks were made of pure sekiseki rock, a rare stone that completely repulsed spirit particles, in a world where literally everything was made of spirit particles, the wall wa

The arrancar woman and Hikari stared at each other, evaluating each other's strength.
"You are different from the other captains" the arrancar mused.
"And you from other arrancar" Hikari replied
The woman nodded "I am the 2nd Diachiken, Aza Monela, my power is second only to Lord Crisis himself, there is no other arrancar as powerful as I, save for him" she said.
Hikari stood up straight and placed her hand on the hilt of her zanpakto "I am Hikari Mikon, Captain of the Kido Corps, I'm afraid I've been secluded from the other squads too long to say for certain, but I am the strongest captain save for the Captain Commander"
Aza smiled "I see, then I shall not hold back" she said as she gripped her own zanpakto, a standard katana with a star shaped tsuba.
Hikari and Aza both drew their blades and assumed similar stances. Their names had been exchanged, and the time for words had passed.
Two pillars of reiatsu, one golden, the other black, shot into the sky as both women prepared to attack

Aza raised her sword and whip, then dashed forward, flicking her wrist to send the whip at Hikari.
Hikari ducked, feeling the wind of the whip pass over her, then slashed, the blade appearing close enough to strike Aza.
Aza blocked the strike, she was completely awatre of her surroundings, an attack could come from anywhere, and she needed to be ready. Hikari pulled her blade back, and Aza darted forward, stabbing with her sword as she drew her whip back for another lash.
Hikari straightened and knocked the strike high, then planted her foot in Aza's face and knocked her back, then slashed again. Aza recovered quickly and saw Hikari's blade appear before her, she started to block, but then noticed something odd. "the top half of her blade… where is it?" she thought, then she heard the whistle of a blade cutting through the wind behind her. Azea reacted immediately, using sonido to dodge as the two halves of Hikari's sword slashed the air where she had been from opposite sides.
Bleach, Dark Dawn, Ch58, FractureTorin gripped the ceiling for dear life as a guard patrol passed underneath him, somehow managing to not look up and see him in his hastily acquired hiding spot. Once they left he dropped to the ground and rounded a corner, then slumped against a wall to calm his nerves. “That was too close, the guards are everywhere on this floor, but the other floors were deserted, what gives…?Bleach, Dark Dawn, Ch58, Fracture by cmd1095
With a bit of luck and a lot of close calls, Torin had found a way down to the ninth floor without incident. He doubted things had gone as smoothly for the others though, he was certain he’d sensed Rida’s reiatsu spike back on the 8th floor a while back, evidently the enemy had become aware of him and he’d been forced to fight. The spike had been so short lived that Torin hadn’t been able to pinpoint his location before it died out, which concerned him. If there was an opponent that would require Rida to blow his cover and use his full strength, it shouldn’t have
Bleach, Dark Dawn, Ch57, Plans Gone AwryThree days after the meeting with Yammamoto and the assignment of the mission, Torin, Rida, and Aurora stepped out of the garganta into the endless desserts of Hueco Mundo. The pale moonlit sky was devoid of clouds, as it always was in the eternal night of the dessert here. Small crystalline trees spotted the landscape, adding some small bit of variety to the endless sand dunes stretching as far as the eye could see.Bleach, Dark Dawn, Ch57, Plans Gone Awry by cmd1095
“Unbelievable, we’re so far off course from our intended exit point that the map we had in case we were off target doesn’t even account for it” Torin growled, shooting a glare at Rida “now we’ll need to find our way back, thanks to SOMEONE not being able to form a proper path of reiatsu for themselves and needing to be rescued”
“Hey I didn’t see any gilded staircases from you either” Rida retorted “we can’t all be masters of the art like Aurora”
“I have something like 3 times your reiatsu t
Bleach, Dark Dawn, Ch56, Time to CounterattackTorin, Aurora, and Rida stood in the central office of the 1st division headquarters, with Yammamoto sitting at his desk across from them. It was still dark outside, the sunrise still being several hours away. The trio had been summoned there for a mission debriefing, as the period of quiet from the enemy forces grew longer tensions grew higher, and everyone was expecting some sort of trick coming in the near future, but it never came, and the more time that passed the more nervous this fact made people.Bleach, Dark Dawn, Ch56, Time to Counterattack by cmd1095
“Head captain” Torin said, bowing his head respectfully “you summoned us for a mission? Has Crisis finally made his move?”
Yammamoto shook his head “no, his army has still made no visible moves except for occasional raids against the espada and other arrancar resisting them in Hueco Mundo. But as you know, we strongly suspect that this means he is simply planning something and hiding it, without the stealth force and their infiltration abilities, gathering

“That god damn brat is becoming more of a nuisance by the day” Crisis growled. He was in his throne room, a large coliseum-like room made entirely of obsidian, with a large stone throne in the stands overlooking the arena. He was pacing back and forth in front of it, his face contorted in an expression of fury. On either side of the throne an arrancar servant cowered in terror, each desperately hoping their master’s rage wouldn’t be vented on them.
“First he stopped the initial invasion, then reorganized their fighting forces, thwarted my ploy to get the espada fighting the gotei instead of me, and then that whole Karakura town fiasco. This shinigami isn’t worthy to so much as kiss the ground at my feet, and yet he’s flawlessly countered every plan we’ve tried.” Crisis muttered “at this point I’m going to have to handle things personally”
“Not necessarily my lord” A voic
Ok so I'm writing a book that involves video game stuff, and I decided that while I certainly could do everything myself, there was a perfectly good opportunity to have a fun contest with this.
The premise here is simple, I want you, the contest participant, to design a unique character class like you would see in an MMORPG. This class would be custom made, tailored to your own personality and fighting style (or the personality and fighting style of an OC or something if you don't want to use yourself as the template).
You can include as much or as little detail as you like, coming up with ability names, strategies, what stats they'd be best at/worst at, all of that stuff. However there needs to be some information for an entry to be valid
Class Name: This is self explanatory, what is your class called? Try to be creative with the name, if you name it "fighter" that doesn't make it unique at all
Class Type: Is your class a melee type? skill based? Support? Mage? some mix? Give a general classification that the class could fall into, this will help me compare similar submissions and also give me a better sense of what the class is
Class theme: Tell me about your class, how does it function? what is it's purpose? What is the driving concept behind it? Basically you need to convey to me the nature of the class and whatnot.
Note that those are simply the REQUIRED bits of information that I need, the best submissions, as in any contest, are the ones that go above and beyond what is merely required and go that extra mile. The more detail you give, the more your vision is conveyed, and the more likely your vision will win. The greatest concept in the world can't win if it isn't sufficiently communicated.
Rules and Restrictions! IMPORTANT!!!
1) Don't make it too OP, be reasonable about things and don't give the class a crudload of broken abilities and awesome stats and etc... You can make any kind of class you want, but delve too far into the ridiculous and you won't win
2) The class should be viable for all "levels" and whatnot, since I haven't made all the characters or decided what their levels would be or even how I'm going to scale things. I can always fill in the gaps of course but do try to craft it in such a way that if a minor character with a low level were to use it the class would still function. This isn't a strict rule, but a good one to keep in mind
3) The class name "hero" is reserved, there will only be one of those, at least as the plot stands anyway
4) There are no submission limits, if you can come up with 10 submissions you are welcome too, but come judging time I will restrict each contestant to 1 winning entry
5) Nothing too lewd or inappropriate, if you want to head down that route that's fine (say you want a class mechanic to involve charming and seduction, that's fine, but keep it somewhat clean), just tread carefully and don't go too far
Some of My Key Judging Criteria
here are some of the things I will be looking for when judging entries.
1) Adherence to the rules (cause duh)
2) Creativity in concept (this is the biggest criteria, everything else is considered, but in the end it's the concept I care about most)
3) Development of class mechanics (the more you flesh out how your class functions, the better)
4) Class feeling tailored to an individual (this is important, the class should feel like it was tailored to a specific person, doesn't matter if it is you or an OC or whoever, just so long as it feels like the class you made would be hand crafted based on someone's personality and style, rather than a class that could be used by anyone)
5) Everything else ( I simply listed some of the main things I will be considering, anything else can only help you)
Participation prize - if I in any way use your class idea in my book, you (or rather, your DA account) will receive a mention in the special thanks section of the book, depending on finances at the time I will also attempt to give each one of you whose concepts are used a free signed copy of the book.
1st place -to be determined
2nd place- to be determined
3rd place - to be determined
OK so I haven't quite decided exactly what the prizes will be for the winners, or how many winners I will choose, that will depend in part on how many submissions there are and whatnot, the 1st place prize will most likely include some sort of small monetary reward.
If anyone wishes to donate prizes let me know
If there are any questions about information I forgot to include, feel free to ask
|Well I usually give out gifts rather than receive them, but I'm trying to save up some points to get a commission from one of the more famous bleach OC artists here on DA, like Rtenzo. I figure if I can get a commission from him I can draw lots of attention to my fanfiction|
If you have a few extra points lying around and are willing to donate, I'll be very grateful. I'll also do a request for anyone who does donate, though that isn't the greatest incentive.
I have NO talent for drawing, but i DO have a talent for writing, so I can offer writing deviations in Art Trades with anyone who wants|
things I know enough about to do include, but are not limited too
poetry (to an extent, i know some basic forms and I know Shakespearean sonnets, that's about it, and depending on if i have inspiration the quality varies)
Kingdom Hearts stuff
Fullmetal Alchemist stuff (been a while since i've watched the series, but i've watched both)
Oh My Goddess stuff (I doubt anyone has even heard of this... but i've watched the anime and read all the manga they have at the library, which is about books 1-28)
Air Gear (I've only seen anime)
Final Fantasy (have played 7, all sequels/prequels of 7, 10, 10-2, a quarter of 12, and tactics)
Avatar the last airbender/Legend of Korra
For all categories the quality of what you get will be greater or worse based on how much info you give me to work with. For example if you ask for a sonnet and leave the rest to me that means i have to come up with the topic, what to be said, and how to word it all by myself, if you give me a topic that I know about then it makes things way easier and I can focus on the actual writing. Or if you want a Bleach OC fight but only give me one OC then I have to create his opponent, which I CAN do, but I can't spit out OCs like i'm some sort of machine.
