"The Search - The Blades, First Trial: Water"

The Mountain of The Blades, Blades Village, Land of Lightning

It was an early morning within the Mountain of the

Blades, the serene sound of the ocean current rush and

slaming against the side of the clifffaces, and the rigid

mountain range close to the ocean. Overall it was a beautiful

day, and while it was a day of training for many, for

Ogosokamaru, it was a day of trials…Trials in which he had

to defeat in order to become a member of the blades. There

was a knock at the door, the same woman from before by the

name of Hoshi, her hair was held in a single pony tail, her

body garbed in a hakama samurai dress, of hoping for the boy

to wake up, and bring him forth to the trials. "Are you

awake?" Hoshi asked out loud, not daring to move into the

room…

The tip of a sword was all that touched the sliding

paper door, and from where Ogo knelt on the floor in the

middle of the room. His eyes were still closed, but he pulled

his sword back, and drew it across his thumb to resheath it

in traditional fashion, his eyes snapped open and he stood

easily, showing his body's youth to prove the appearance was

not a fraudulent jutsu. "Yeah, I'm ready." And he would don

his jacket and shinobi shoes, and exit the room past Hoshi,

to stand in the hallway and wait for her to lead the way.

With Odo swept up he would be lead out of the leaders

manor, out into the village and back up a flight of stone

stairs, leading high into the mountain tops until they

reached the summit. They were greeted by massive stone

pillars, edged in the shape of previous great

warriors,standing up straight in samurai armor with a blade

pressed down infront of them, after they reached the top it

was open grounds, an interesting base in the middle of what

seemed to be a cobble stone arena as well as 3 cave like

entrances which went into the mountain…

"Welcome…to the trial grounds, where only the

strongest of our clan come to test their might against the

unknown elements…. Coming here is even rare for many of our

clan, you should feel honored," Hoshi spoke softly, her face

was pretty serious as she continued to point off into the

first of the dark cave.. " Your journey will start

there…each cave has its own elements to accomplish… All

of them consist of gathering an artifact to fit into the base

in the arena…You won't get help here if you fail…You will

die, understand?"

Ogo smiles, "So you aren't coming with me?" He drew

his sword quickly enough. And immediately the blade began to

crackle with electricity, giving off a bright blue-white glow

from the electricity snapping and surging around and through

it. "So who puts the artifacts back after someone completes

even one of the trials?" A rhetorical question, but really,

who does?
It was then Ogo took a step towards the mouth of the

cave, and stopped for a moment, "Is there anything else you

feel like you need to tell me?" His head turned towards her

and quietly awaited a 'Don't get killed, idiot' comment from

her or something to see him off.

"The spirits who guard this village with their

presence and life, that is who will bring them back to the

depths…All I can tell you is … Don't make any friends,"

Hoshi offered the advice and took a step back, she seated

herself, at the entrance, closing her eyes as if she was

drifting into meditation, that would be all that was left for

her to speak about… The Entrance of the cave itself was

dark, and only the smell of dirt and gravel could be smelled

from the entrance, though there didn't seem to be anything

out of the ordinary… It was just an old dusty cave from the

looks of it.
"Well then, heh," Ogo chuckled. A sense of fear? He

hadn't felt that in a long time. Ever since…
He reeled into his past in his mind, drawing back on

how he and his platoon were sent into a deathtrap in a no-win

situation by the Colonel in the Diamyo's armies, who was the

Diamyo's own nephew.. the man who killed Ogo's first love.
Ogosokamaru snapped back to reality, and he was still

standing with one foot in the cave, it had only been a moment

to think about the past, and he muttered before fully

entering into the cool darkness, "Huh, I can't remember what

it's like to have true friends." And on he ventured, the

lights from the halls at the mouth of the cave, and her

silhouette sitting at the entrance getting smaller and

smaller behind him. On guard, and ready, he charged a little

bit of his chakra just in case this got really hairy.

COMBAT: Luna finishes her turn.
COMBAT: It is now Ogosokamaru's turn.
COMBAT: Ogosokamaru focuses 1000 stamina to turn it into

There wasn't much else visible form within the cave,

other than the brief illumination of unknown markings along

the cave walls, the place itself was just as traight path,

though finally more began visible as he slipped through, and

the bright ness from outside the cave had completely turned

into darkness… His blade allowed enough light to

illuminate, showing that his path was splitting into a slight

fork, both of the pathes seemed to be labled ontop, kanji

etched right above the entrances… One of them labled as

water…while the other was fire… Beyond that there wasn't

much else… just more darkness…

Ogo thought for a moment looking at the two choices.

Water or Fire. Fire is weak to water, water weak to

lightning. Worst case scenario, he had both of them beat as

far as elemental affinity. Ability was another story. But for

now, he chooses the path that reads WATER. Even if it is a

suggestion for users of that affinity to go, he's good. And,

if it's a warning, he's still good. Again, at least as

affinity weaknesses on the elemental wheel were concerned. So

through the path of Water he starts again, the electricity

still crackling up and down his blade for the glow to light

his path.

The choice Odo made, whether it be good or bad was to

be decided at another time… As Ogo quietly began to move

through the water cavern light began to pick up and no longer

was it the empty darkness which made most of the cave. Water

could be heard, and soon the cave system opened up into a

massive underground waterfall, a rocky man made bank seemed

to be visible while the rest of the path fell right through

the fall… Nothing else seemed out of the ordinary but

suddenly Odo could feel some prickling at his flesh, and

suddenly a torrent of spiders came falling from the ceiling,

biting, and crawling along his flesh unless he didn't get

them off…

Ogo had no clue the spiders were coming until they

were right on top of him, he leaped out of the way of them and

fling what few clung to him off of his clothing and person,

moving further through the tunnel just to get away from them.

He even pulled out his tanto and continued the lightning arc

jutsu through both blades to get better visibility. He went

to moving a bit quicker now with the added light source, more

light, can see further through the darkness, and hence can

move faster knowing what's ahead of him better because he can

see it better.

COMBAT: Ogosokamaru finishes his turn.
COMBAT: It is now Luna's turn.
RP: Ogosokamaru makes a Spd roll and got 11.

Ogo went deeper into the darkness, but the area began

to change around him, the cave began to disappear and instead

he was standing within the abyss of a massive pool of

water…. There was no way out of the are as well as no way

in…. At least noticably… Instead the water began to move

and shift about him, almost violently attempting to shake him

down in a double dose of pain.. It continued to move, shaking

and smashing, attempting to bring him down under… After the

attacks he would notice something far infront of him… A

sparkling a gem… and a ghastly energy of white zooming

through the water below him…

Ok, so another light. Well, two to be exact. And now

in this expanse, looks like an underground lake. Perfect.

Let's aim for that little flash of light. And since Ogo was

able to at least get out of the way, he'd have to take a

moment to catch his bearing again. But for now, he was all

out sprinting for that sparkle at the other side of the

cavern. As fast as he could go, he speeds towards what he

believes is his goal, the sparkly thingy. Even in a

roundabout way so as not to attract too much attention to the

fact he's going solely for that at the moment, and the

whatever-it-is try harder to kill him.

COMBAT: Ogosokamaru finishes his turn.

Speed wouldn't be enough for Odo or at least not this

day, as he leaped forward quickly to make way for the gem,

there was a shift in the base of the water, the swimming

creature below him conjured a mass of sphere water chakra

right infront of him, aiming to catch him in the ball while

the chakra continued to move and churn, a drilling lance of

water forming to slam right into his body… There wasn't

going to be any let up, at least from the speed demon below

him… He was faced with two options…Slay the beast under

him or go for speed against speed and get that gem before it

was too late…

Ogo just wasn't able to get his footing he was

needing to dodge so quickly. At this point, he puts his hands

together, and forces chakra through his body to increase his

speed with a kekkei genkai. Hopefully that would do the

trick, or at least give him the slight upper hand against

this thing. And there might be more than one, so he'd have to

be efficient. Ducking and weaving around the ball of water

and the spear, he continues the 'gauntlet' towards the gem!

Let's go faster!

Odo was getting closer…far more closer than the

thing under him had expected, it attempted to catch up but

failed miserably, however as Odo got closer to his

destination, he would realize something…the area around him

began to shift and change, and the gem he was hoping to

gather seemed to become further and further away from him…

If he didn't see through this genjutsu there would be no hope

on actually picking up the gem….

COMBAT: Luna attacks Ogosokamaru with

FALSE-SURROUNDINGS-TECHNIQUE…34
COMBAT: Luna finishes her turn.
COMBAT: It is now Ogosokamaru's turn.

COMBAT: Ogosokamaru wins the roll.
COMBAT: There are no more attacks for you to defend against.

When in doubt, stab yourself! Or at least, if you

think something is amiss, cause yourself some pain. At least

one thing that a friend of his taught him with her doujutsu

genjutsu techniques. Ogo placed his crackling blade against

his own shoulder, and let the electricity crackle through his

muscles and tendons for but a moment, causing enough damage

to remove the suspected genjutsu and snap him back into

reality. Before he knew it, he was upon the gem, snatching it

from it's resting place and moving on quickly to keep away

from this thing under the water. Hopefully he didn't have to

deal with fire next. Ogo grumbled to himself a little, but

continued onward to find an exit out of this place, putting

the gem securely in a pouch on the inside of his jacket.

There was no exit… Once he had managed to pick up

the gem the room had completely altered and change. In a mere

blink of an eye he was back at the entrance…Right infront

of the door consisting of water and fire… Perhaps it was a

little odd, but surprisingly enough he was in good and mint

condition… Though with the water cave cleared it was

obvious that fire was going to be next…
