    Red Scale Techniques

    Post by MG Ark on Thu Nov 15, 2012 4:51 am


    Technique Name
    Fishman's Fist
    Prerequisites: Strength Level 2, Hand to Hand Level 2
    Weapon types: Hand to Hand
    Cost: 50 EXP
    Description: The fishman will flex the muscles in one or both arms and energize himself with a slight boost in speed and strength present for only a single second to change the style of punching to penetration rather than blunt trauma.

    Technique Name Red Fish Explosive Fist
    Prerequisites: Strength Level 3
    Weapon types: Hand to Hand
    Cost: 150 EXP
    Description: The fishman will compress all raw physical power into a single point on the body [IE a foot or a hand] and channel the energy through the next thing this segment of the body connects with. The energy will resonate inside and explode outward in all directions as explosive kinetic energy.

    I know, you hate double-checking, but please do it regardless. :>
    Stuff like, you are supposed to replace "Technique name" with the name of the technique instead of putting it after that.
    Tech 2 does not have any name to it.
    And for weapon types, mostly the expertise group name will be enough unless it's really only specific weapons within an expertise. (e.G.: you can't do everything you can do with a pistol or rifle with the respective other one or a crossbow even, yet they are the same expertise.)

    Technique 1 i kind of miss a little more explanation, it just says for one punch you're penetrating instead of blunt force hitting. So it's a very directional, focused strike? And what exactly is meant by flexing? Because technically that's what you always do. I'd expect it to be kind of a "spring loaded" strike after building up "pressure" by flexing without extending your arm accordingly and then releasing at the desired power.

    For the second one, i can't really imagine what that's supposed to be, how it's supposed to work. But i can already tell you, that you cannot make things explode just by focusing. You'll need to refine this and the explanation as such a fair bit.

    Also both need some kind of explanation about how this fares for hitting people and possible other targets roundabout. Just so it's in the clear, what this can practically do.

    Tech 1: Basically this technique is a concentrated punch to give it that little extra oomph should it be required. A canon comparison would be Gum-Gum Pistol in that it's not necessarily something Luffy couldn't do without using a specialized version of his devil fruit in that he basically just extends his arm and slams it into someone, or tries to, and it is a technique for various reasons. This is similar in the way that it is basically a "max" power punch from MG Ark.

    Tech 2: This is a bit more complicated than the previous technique but I'm sure I can explain it if I take a bit more time in doing so. Basically the idea is a punch that comes from the inside rather than the outside. A transfer of kinetic energy into a vibration form much in the way that a drum vibrates to create sound when hit with a drum stick. In any case the punch would completely negate it's own power upon impact and then reverberate inside via moisture (As it is still part of a fishman combat style) inside of the punched 'thing' and then explodes outward. Not really explode in flames but more of an expulsion of force all at once from a single point inside of what was hit originally with this technique.

    First one does look fine then, but the other one, do put a reasonable explanation in the technique description, because that's where people will look for it if they have trouble figuring it out. That's what the description is for. Not only for how something looks but also a brief explanation how it works basically plus potentially what it's good for/what kind of effect it creates.

    Technique Name Red Fish Explosive Fist
    Prerequisites: Strength Level 3
    Weapon types: Hand to Hand
    Cost: 150 EXP
    Description: The fishman will attack a target object, living thing, other misc. thigs with to begin this technique. Upon connecting this technique with the target the Red Scale water abilities will manipulate the moisture inside of the object/person/thing within the immediate concussive range of the connection. The manipulation will not be absolute but cause the moisture to take the energy and power from the attack made by the fishman and reflect it back towards the outer shell of the target of this technique. This reflection of energy will explode outward in kinetic energy from the inside of the target rather than the damage that would naturally be done with a normal attack.



    [OOC:] Revised to be more specific and descriptive.

    Now that's a much more acceptable description. NOw to more technical things, as it reads, it's a kind of focus-y based ability requiring some form of "mastery".
    That i'd like to see reflected in a decent requirement of most likely concentration.
