    Alright got one ability slot left for Sasheem, so...

    Mystic Materialization: Sasheem can summon a random object that when touched with a magic attack repel that attack back at it's caster or when touched by a magic user, detonate. The objects created can range in size and shape, but they're never too detailed.

    Default Zaofan's Techniques and Items Page [Post-Handover]

    Referencing the original Techniques Page for my usage...and so I might edit it.

    Stuff added to the original draft will be written in blue in case we want reversions.

    _____

    First Tier Techniques:
    1) Limited wushu levitation: ability to leap, glide, and "gallop" in the air at the same speed as his running speed, not unlike a faster version of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon travel. He cannot maintain height for very long (so it is not levitation) and it is not true flight. Uses virtually no ki.

    2) Optic Blast: ability to channel ki into a concentrated force of concussive ruby-colored energy through the eyes. His trademark energy attack, the optic blast is more powerful than traditional eye beams of similar powerlevels, being fast and accurate. Its power can be adjusted, from being as strong as a regular punch to as virtually as potent as a Kamehameha or Dodonpa from an opponent of similar powerlevels, to a single blast as strong as a kikoho. The blast can also be adjusted for a wide area of effect (that wider the area, the more diluted the attack), or maxed out for massive but sparingly used offensive power -- both attacks are called the Mega Optic Blast. However, continued or amplified use of the optic blast in general drains stamina and, after a point of exhaustion, can begin to drain life force as well. The Mega Optic Blast is particularly draining, and can knock himself out of the fight from sheer fatigue.

    3) Rakan Geki: A powerful flurry of concentrated hand thrusts, punches, and parries. Weaker than the Hokuto Hyakuretsu Dan.

    4) Hokuto Nijyuretsu Dan: Twenty rapidfire physical attacks, with the final three attacks being particularly devastating while Zaofan is enveloped in a ki aura. Because of the energy required for both speed and maintenance of strength, Zaofan tends to save this as a finishing move.

    5) Rapid Movement/Zanzoken: bursts of high speed that almost looks like teleportation. Can also be used to create an afterimage copy for a couple seconds.

    Second Tier Techniques

    6)Pressure Kicker: Adapted from the Hokuto Shinken style, with the Hichō Kūzan Pa. Using levitation and ki-thrust, a powerful flying kick laced with crimson energy for increased concussive impact. Because Zaofan's interpretation incorporates flight plus the original move, this technique spends some ki. It's good for closing distances for h2h combat while using economical amounts of ki.

    7) Ruby Taiyoken: Modified from the Crane school. Now that Zaofan's used his optic blasts more often, and as a lesson from facing giant Dark Chou in battle, Zaofan has refined his optic blast. Rather than emitting concussive force, he can shine a far brighter but almost completely non-offensive flash of ruby light to blind his foes. Because it is not an attack but merely the light from his optic energy, it expends almost no ki.

    8) Ruby Ricochet: Self-taught. Zaofan's observation skills are slowly starting to incorporate trigonometry to calculate his observation of objects around himself and the angles found between surfaces of these objects. By firing a thinner, less powerful optic blast, Zaofan can ricochet a blast off most surfaces for an accurate bank shot. Useful when it comes to bypassing enemy defenses or to take advantage of the environment.

    9) Scarlet X: by channeling his concussive ki into his katchin bo staff Bojack, Zaofan can launch two dense, red energy blades in the shape of an X. These blades are made of concentrated concussive ki, capable of cutting through a variety of materials and exploding. This move is usually a finisher and is capable of immense direct damage or devastating area explosions. Requires the bo staff to perform this move.

    10) Before Image: A variation on the Turtle School After Image technique, Zaofan can "launch" an image of himself between him and a target. Anticipating that the target would react to the image, leaving themselves open to attack.

    Third Tier Techniques

    11) Crimson Dynamite Attack: Combining his speed and his optic energies, Zaofan will fire an optic blast but then fly into it so that it envelopes his body, riding the beam and turning him into a flying red comet for devastating ramming damage

    12) Crimson Dynamite Comet: A travel power, Zaofan fires a large optic blast but quickly joins it with a great burst of speed. By combining his flying speed with the speed of the the optic blast, he is enveloped by his energy blast and can essentially five times his own flight speed. The range of the technique is determined by the range of the blast; hence, the Comet is not suitable for long-range travel, but rather for relatively short rocket-bursts before he drops back down to his normal travel speeds. He can also maintain an optic blast to keep "surfing" it for further distances until he is out of ki. This move does not grant increased reflex speed.

    13) Cho Gattai Ken: (Great Fusion Fist) By combining the fire of the Dragon's Breath, the Crane School's energy techniques, the collective foundation of the Turtle School, the speed of the Wolf, and the striking power of the Hokuto Shinken, Zaofan has the power to channel heat and concussive optic energy into a single strike, hitting at five times his hitting power and can penetrate most materials. However, due to the fact that this technique uses life-force thanks to the Crane School in addition to juggling the schools, he can only use this technique sparingly, roughly once per battle at this rate. And, obviously, he must be able to strike his target for it to work.

    14) Scarlet Shield: Using the same type of concussive energy as his optic blasts, Zaofan can coat parts of his body in a forcefield for momentary protection, with the same energy wattage as a standard optic blast. This is useful for delivering blows without shattering his bones or creating a quick defensive field (though it cannot be maintained for more than a few seconds). The shield can be transferred to an ally, but with the same limitations.

    15) Wolf Fang Fist: Merging the teachings of the Hokuto Shinken with the Wolf's Prowl burst of speed, this modified version of the Geki Dan, this technique uses speed and ferocity to deliver 19 rapidfire blows of ki-driven punches, kicks, slashes, and strikes, with the twentieth and final strike consisting of a double-palm strike that hits with devastating impact, enough to knock foes through buildings and mountains, and possibly far out of the battlefield.

    Gifted Techniques:
    Dragon’s Breathe: This technique imbues ki and flame together, and is spat from ones hands or mouth. The ki-flame combo is far hotter than a normal fire can be. From Samson Balon.

    Dragon’s Endurance: Immunity to flames so the Breathe does not burn them, not any other fire. From Samson Balon.

    Kiss of the Dragon: The finest strike of ki to the back of a human’s neck (at a very specific point) can paralyze a foe for seconds to minutes. In that time they cannot breathe easily and can even die from blood buildup. If human, at least. From Marron Balon.

    Wolf's Prowl: A technique that increases one’s speed by a factor of three for a short time, making one faster and more able to strike those who might be swifter. From Mara.

    Woven Path: A technique that grounds opponents. By feeding ki into the surrounding area, Flight can be negated entirely. The better one is with the technique, the further the field can be projected. From Tao’ro.

    Bear’s Strength: A technique that draws upon the genius loci of any place (the surrounding energy) to enhance physical strength by 3x (this is the companion piece to the Wolf’s Prowl). From Barlon Bedlam.

    Items:
    • Bojack staff - a nearly indestructible bo staff made of katchin that he stole as a young thief. Typically used when traveling.
    • Thin but well-armored yellow bracers that hook over his middle finger.
    • three capsules: one for food, one for personal items like clothes and incense, and one to hide Bojack
    • weighted Z-Cape: a gift from Jinzi Pantaloon, this weighted cape is heavy enough for weight training Zaofan, but somehow and impossibly light enough to billow in the wind. The cape is marked with a circled-Z over the front left corner over his chest, and a much larger one in the center of the back. Mr. Pantaloon meant for the Z to stand for Zaofan, but he has playfully considered it to stand for "Zaofan School," or the "Z-School," since he never had one true school to study with but rather is a unique hodgepodge of disciplines.
    • Kami's Set of Kitchen Knives -- wrapped in an old leather case, Zaofan found a set of culinary knives of different sizes and functions in the Lookout's kitchen. Kami, not being much for food and not knowing where they originally came from, allowed Zaofan to keep the set. The composition of the knives are unknown, though Zaofan suspects the blades might be made of the same metal as his bo staff.
    • Alien book; unread and recently translated. From the slavers' asteroid.

    Fourth Tier Techniques

    16) Sheep's Fortitude: Thanks to extensive sessions with Etrina, Zaofan learns to dull his nerve receptors and feel no pain, thereby increasing his durability. The added effect is increased (though not total) protection against paralysis and sensory-dampening methods, as well as greater resistance to certain status effects by burning toxins with ki. The technique lasts for 5 posts, after which Zaofan's body slows down and becomes sluggish as his nerves come back online. Inspired by the Bear's Strength and the Wolf's Prowl.

    17) The Warm Glowing Warming Glow: a lukewarm Optic Blast that transmits recuperative ki energy to assist in mild healing or lending ki to an ally. Its healing properties are not as potent as more dedicated healers but can be good for quick triage. The amount of ki that can be lent is finite depending on Zaofan's own reserves, since it is effectively a drain or transference of his own ki. This technique does not work on purely technological beings, and is less potent on beings more powerful than Zaofan.

    Why is Althena healing a guy that said he didn't need it ?

    It helps if y'all actually read the posts.

    Nobody but Sasheem knows where Baric is at current.

    Bruce, Baric and Sasheem are on a completely different floor than the others as of right now.

    From my understanding Hops said he just didn't need to cure of toxins. I treat Althena's ability to heal and her ability to cure toxins as two separate abilities. In fact they are two separate abilities. In other words I treat healing and curing as two separate things.

    When I think of Dash's Storm Shield, I am partly inspired by Halo's shield from the Grrl Power webcomic. Dash's shield is a little more malleable, but not quite as powerful.
