For those of you unfamiliar with HJC. It is a Chinese Wuxia web-novel.
You can read it here, it is completed: https://www.wuxiaworld.com/novel/heavenly-jewel-change

The Wiki (May lack information with certain characters but has all the mechanical information we need): https://heavenly-jewel-change.fandom.com/wiki/Heavenly_Jewel_Change_Wiki

Lots of things like place names and people will be OC. so I can run with interesting character ideas.

Last thread :http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive/3638342

You play as Zou-Do-Shai. A Hunter belonging in the great Dershwa City. You are a have attained a Second Level of Heavenly Energy and are proving yourself to be a strong Cultivator. Last time we left the orphanage, found a special cultivation technique, met a guy called who called himself "Demon Hunter" after saving our life from a Wind Wolf, and began cultivating, making two breakthroughs in a span of two weeks! During that time we took part in a week long expedition to help kill a Heavenly King Stage Wolf that was making a huge monster wolf problem, during which we found out one of our teammates was a Princess of the Dershwa Clan!. After almost dying to a tentacle demon on the way home we were airlifted out and met King Long Dershwa, a man who says he has nothing but time. We are now back at the Hunter's Camp, ready to make the next step on our path to God-hood.

>Concern yourself about the ethics of killing things that can become human with enough training

When home you bring out the Dark Core, remembering the Black Cat, which didn't attack you until it knew you were waiting for it do something. You remember the Guard telling you about civilisations composed of beasts and animals that have cultivated enough they are basically human, if you left it alone, could it have cultivated to that point, becoming a person, with their own desires, family, jobs and lives? You think you need a rest, after all, no-one else seems to care. Why should you? You need to cultivate to restore your Heavenly Energy before tomorrow morning, so that means more cultivation.

>Roll 1d100 to cultivate best of three. Sorry about this being a bit late, had a minor intruder scare, it seems our safe area is finally being corrupted like the rest of the country.

>Evening Choice has been locked to prepare to tomorrow

You're about to continue cultivating for the afternoon when a Physical Jewel Master comes up to you.

"Zou-Do-Shai, I'm sorry about this but you won't have any free time off tomorrow, the scouts have spotted a massive monstrosity covering the castle, you were part of the Evil Element Massacre a few days ago right? Well imagine that, but as big as a castle and with two horns on its head. Some of the people who got close to the area went kinda mad, so we've called in the Central Hunters for some assistance with this. This means another Expedition, but, as this a new ruler of the forest, its going to be sending out scouts to cover the area, including this area.
In other words, we are preparing for an attempted invasion of Evil Element beasts.

You can buy a holy amulet blessed by the Priestess in the City for 20 Gold, or go without, your death not mine. Good luck!"

You see a wooden unpainted cross on his belt, with a metal knife stuck to the end.

>Buy Holy Amulet
>Don't buy Holy Amulet

>>
>>3664328

>Attend to the flank with other Heavenly Energy Users

You have 43 Gold

Apparently this should protect you from illusions and delusions from up to Low Level Shi Stage Evil Element beasts, but from what you remember you have some doubts, could that reaper really have been only an illusion?

The Guard has been doing his job for decades now, you trust him to find a good team, 17 of the Camp's 19 Jewel Masters are at this point, with one Earth Elemental Jewel Master fortifying the barriers and a the Life Element Jewel Master who is going to be running around everywhere. So you join the flank, around 50 Heavenly Energy users of all ages are there, not strong enough to be reliable on the front lines but strong enough to be useful against a few stragglers, the hope being that as beasts reach the entrance, a few will go to the side, towards the flank.

You hunker down for the night. Other people take watch.

>You have run out of time!
>Sleep
>Start of the 19th day

You are woken up by another Hunter. The invasion has begun and the plan is working.

>Roll 1d100 for an Encounter best of three. A roll of 80 or above will result in a monster your Holy Amulet will not work on. We will be using the same mechanics as the expedition with the group.

You hear barking, then you see flame, you and others shout at those too dumb to buy an amulet. Readying an attack. Hell Hounds rush at you, about 10 of them, burning the grass at their feet, but trees seem fine. Dual Element beasts are uncommon, I guess they figured out all of our stronger forces are at one point.

That's when you see it, a massive group of Cursed Flesh running towards you. However all of them move to other people. You are ignored, you start to feel cold, flashes of deaths coming to you.

Then you see it. That Grim Reaper is slowly approaching, and other people are busy with the Cursed Flesh.

>The Grim Reaper (Skeleton) is dead!

It takes a casual swipe at you, but you're ready for it this time, you swing as hard as you can, and turn the Reaper's skull to dust, the scythe's blade never touching you. The bones start to turn to dust on their own, no life in them anyway. You see a tiny bead of a core in the ground.

You expected some resistance, but it was like cutting through butter, the scythe stays, apparently not part of this monster's physiology. You pick it up. Your Heavenly Energy reacting.

>Picked up Reaper's scythe
>Can insta-kill any enemy if it touches, but you can only roll your STR for damage, no scythe technique works with this.
>Can insta-kill you as well

You put it away for now, making sure to cover it with a few pieces of cloth

With the Grim Reaper dead, the monsters slowly appear less and less, until the Guard sends a messenger to say that for now, the invasion is over. We should expect fewer troops tomorrow too, as they know if they come here they will die.

"Hey Lad, I'm sorry today I need to work on some better defences like holy scriptures for tomorrow, we contacted the local Taoist Priest for help and he says he can carve in symbols of his faith into some wood to scare off some stronger ones. No Heavenly Energy Control training until this all blows over."

You can feel it, you're so close, your Dantian is straining to keep it all in, you need to cultivate aga-

"Young man could you come here please?"

"What? Why!?"

"Now that's not a way to speak to a priest, I just wanted to tell you that it's getting late, and I need to make some improvements to that Amulet, I think you were sold this on a partial lie, the Priestess doesn't do work like this, so I assume they went to some no-name priestess for a blessing instead. Let me help you out."

He takes your Holy Amulet from you, and prays with it in hand.

"There, all better. You should see a much more noticeable difference tomorrow."

You think things go well, you can't stop about cultivating, and start murmuring to yourself about a breakthrough.

"Hey Zou, you litterally broke through a few days ago, it's probably just jitters from that scythe guy, grats on killing him by the way, I kept getting flashes of my parents dying, almost made me loose it."

You see about 13 different Consolidated equipment, and multiple skills used. The Metal Armed Demon starts gathering red energy in its tube, however the Physical Jewel Masters work together to cut its arm off, enraged, it charges right through them, towards the Crystal Orb near the barracks. Shouting, in, in [I]Human[/I]

"FAMILY, AVENGE DEATH!"

However, using their longer range, the Elemental Jewel Masters burn and pierce it at a distance, its black blood seeping out, falling dead right before the orb, arms outstretched.

Its body disintegrates, a trick you think is unique to the Evil Element. Leaving behind a tennis ball sized core, and 2 Ebony solid horns.

"Everyone calm down!" the Guard shouts.

Things settle down after a few minutes, your heart still racing. It seems like nothing else will attack today, not after they have seen that die.

You know you have made it, the technique book disappears, wishing to be independent of its physical form, merging with you, telling you to focus the Heavenly Energy onto each of your wrists. Two generators form on them, supplying Heavenly Energy right where your Jewels will be. A flash of light appears on your left wrist. You see it, a Rainbow Moonstone sphere with streaks of Sapphire and Tourmaline down each side, with Amethyst and Green Jade swirls surrounding a Cat's Eye. Your Elemental Jewel. You don't even know what some of those Jewels represent, but you know the Rainbow Moonstone, like Shimuko said, and the Sapphire for water, Tourmaline for Wind and Green Jade for Life, but you don't know what the Amethyst or the long Cat's Eye running across the equator could be. The Jewel starts to orbit your wrist. You can feel the Energy in your left arm from Demon Hammer enter your Jewel, you don't know what that's about either.

You are an Elemental Jewel Master, a Low Level Shi Stage Elemental Jewel Master, with 6 Elements, one of them one of the 4 Great Elements. You feel great happiness and pride at this, an orphan, now a Jewel Master. You remember the Gold Medallion the King gave you, and the White Wooden Cross Shimuko gave you. However at the moment, you need some sleep.

You awake with a problem. Your Jewels have not merged into your Heavenly Energy since last night. You think the Guard might be able to help you with this, but your body feels at peace, you have become a Jewel Master before 16. You feel like training your Heavenly Energy amount will go well today

>Visit Guard for Retracting Jewels

You go to see the Guard, with his control of Heavenly Energy he must know how to retract your Jewels.

"Lad, what do you want- Holy Shit come here!"

His draws you in for a massive bear hug.

"I knew you could do it! I just knew!"

He takes a quick look at your left arm, his expression of joy and relief slowly turning into concern and then fear.

"Ah, I guess I know why you're here then. Well come inside. If someone else sees your Jewels you could be snatched up by some random Clan! Now let me get a proper look. Let's see, wind, water, life, spacial from the Cat's Eye, Lightning from the amethyst and Saint from the Rainbow Moonstone. Oh god this is worse than I thougtht. Not like that I mean I am glad you have reached that height when I never did...but 6 Elements, even 1 Great Element. This is on par with the Elemental Leader for the Central Hunters, and she's a Heavenly Jewel Master! Tell you what, you may have some protection with staying with Shimuko a bit. You call her with that cross as soon as were finished here OK!"

He tells you that your Jewels are a part of you, a representation of your soul and also made from your Heavenly Energy. The trick is to slowly change the Heavenly Energy of your Jewels to match your internal Heavenly Energy. With your Heavenly Energy Control this should be simple enough, just use your soul as a catalyst

You find an area in the Cursed Forest to sit in. Then move Heavenly Energy into your Jewel. In front of your mind's eye, you see a 6-coloured wheel. One sixth is blue, one is dark green, one is purple, one is gray, one is a light green and one is white. You turn your attention to the white sixth. Immediately all of your Heavenly Energy rushes to your Jewel. You feel the Saint Element eminate weakly from your Jewel, warm and kind, you see the plants around you start to grow, the scars you earned whilst being a Hunter healing up, the air feels clearer, the darkness of the Cursed Forest subsides slightly and everything feels right with the world. You hold the cross to it in your right hand. The Saint Element rushing to it. You hear a voice in your head.

"Zou-Do-Shai, is that you? You have awakened in such short time? My gods you must be a prodigy, now I know you have the Saint Element, but considering this you must have others...we'll talk when you get to the Palace alright. Princess Jiang is in a good stretch of healing. I need you to go to a place in the City for me. A park just outside the Camp, then wait until late at night for a lift by plane into the Palace. Have patience Boy even with your Jewels they won't let you into the Palace without a recommendation. You don't want to use that Medallion now anyway."

No time for a lesson, but you can buy one of his books. You can also brag about your Jewel too if you want. Song Chad-Pah has started to cultivate too, so you can give him some tips.

You decide to travel back to the orphanage. You want to brag to your childhood friend about your awakening. Plus you want a book to read. It sounds like you will be staying a long time in the Palace. You think that you could buy one off him for a small fee.

The orphanage is not far from the Camp. You make it there in the mid-afternoon. After saying hi to old woman in charge you go to find Song Chad-Pah. He is only a week away from leaving and it shows.

"Zou-Do-Shai! I'm kinda busy here!"

Many, many official looking documents sit on his desk. Some of the books about reading sit on a nearby shelf covered with a fine layer of dust. However he seems so absorbed with his work that he does not turn to you.

You decide that after the words from the Guard. You should keep your Jewels hidden. So you use your newfound strength to just tap on his shoulder a bit.

He responds with annoyance, claiming that he needs this week to prepare for a job as an ambassador, and that he is writing down stuff on a cultivation technique he is starting to learn.

All you ask him is if he as an old book you could learn to read from. He says yes, but that it will cost you 10 Gold. As it came straight from a civil servant of the Dershwa Clan.

You buy the book. Then make your way to the landing spot, an almost entirely abandoned park with no grass in a rough circle in the middle.

At exactly midnight, you see a glint in the air, a completely silent version of the plane you rode during the trip home from the expedition has just landed in the centre of the park.

"Get in quick!" a female voice loudly whispers at you.

You do so, and are introduced to a dark, gloomy exterior, with a few cut gems serving as lights.

You sit down next to the pilot. No Jewels as she may not have summoned them yet. The Dershwa Clan symbol is printed on her similarly black uniform.

You won't sleep here, not with how you feel the wind pushing the plane back and forth. So you decide to cultivate to pass the time. You see the pilot eye you a bit as you do so, looking confused, but not mentioning why.

When you land, you are in the Palace, just as stunning as before, this time the King is not present so you notice a few more detials. The walls are made of amethyst and gold, but the landing area is made of Yellow Jade with green inlays marking the landing space for the "Shadow Eagle" you heard the pilot mention as she landed the craft. You see Shimuko standing there. Eyes glittering with hope.

"I see, there will be three main sections. Firstly, you can probably only use Saint Energy for about a minute, and you use up all of your Heavenly Energy. So we need to increase your Heavenly Energy total before any training can be done otherwise you will only be able to use it maybe twice a day. While a lot of the nessecary Heavenly Energy can be supplied with resources. You need as much as you can. The second part will involve teaching, you will learn what the Saint Element can do, where it can be used and what to use it on. The third part will be storing a skill for it, I have one in mind but for someone at Low Level Shi Stage a lot of preperation is needed to ensure success, as it is a 10 Star Skill.
Once we have done all that we will perform a surgery to realign her merdians. I need you to heal her using the Saint Element with me whilst I perform the surgery. Got all that? Well even if you don't it is midnight and I need some sleep. I suggest you get some too unless you have something important to tell me."

>Show Jewel

You think that your Life Element could help in this situation if even a little. So you summon your Jewel. It looks completely spherical, guess what you saw earlier could have been a trick of the light, but you're not sure.

"Say, you think my Life Element will help?"

"What? You have the Sai-"

She stops talking. You see her eyes darting around, looking at every kind of crystal you they are made up of.

"...No, it won't, it's too different to what we need, maybe for the post-surgery maybe. Just...get some sleep, I need to think about that Skill Storing session a bit more, with both spacial and wind you could become a decent Consolidated Equipment Master, I don't want you to go down that path however, that Lightning Element is perfect for combat, Water for the navy...Any way just put your damn special Jewel away!

You are woken up early, one of Shimuko's attendents has barged into your room with a special uniform for traning and a pouch filled with Beast Cores. You are lead to the training area and see both Shimuko and another, larger version of the Heavenly Energy Traning Orb at the Hunter's Camp.

"Well, get to it! I know the Hunters bought one of these after the expedition. We had been planning it for some time. So you should know how to use it. Hopefully you might be done by the end of today.

My PC has gone to be repaired. So I should have it back soon.
"Now then. For our purposes the Saint Element is similar to the Life Element. It has healing capabilities and can help treat and cure diseases, but it can do so much more. It not only boosts the healing of the Life Element, but can even grow back limbs or cure normally fatal illnesses like Heavenly Energy Corruption
However, it goes beyond this at Zun Stage and beyond, one could argue that the Saint Element purifies instead, purifying a wound back to normal, as it can deal extreme damage to the Evil Element and demonic beings. It can remove and treat curses. Legend states that at the Heavenly God Stage you could walk upon the world and be seen as a deity of all the good in existence. Purifying the root of all evil in a person.
However all this comes with one major drawback, you need to have some medical knowledge of both the physical and spiritual nature to use it properly, otherise you could heal a muscle and give your patient a tumour. So I will teach you some today. You will have some time tomorrow to practice your reading too, as you need to be able to read medical texts in order to progress on your own."

Only the Saint Element can boost stats well, and it needs a Stored Skill. Life Element is pure healing and can cause evolution in animals at higher levels.

For Saint (Can relate to skill ranks as well)
Shi- Healing
Zun - Greater Healing, Purification, Stat Boosts to others
Zong - Superior Healing. Holy Power, Purification, both self and others
King and above - See above, Holy Incarnation.

The medical information Shimuko teaches you is mostly about things you need to know for the surgery in a few days. Which is the main structure of the spiritual anatomy of a normal person vs Jiang Dershwa. You can see from some Images Shimuko produces from her Light Element that her Dantian is normal, but her meridians are extremely long and have become tangled bacause of it. Shimuko thinks it's because her mother is a Heavenly Emperor Master who has the Life Element. She probably lost control of her Jewels during labour and mutated them to grow. The Dantian is located in the spritual version of the ilieum, the meridians follow simiar paths to the arteries and veins of blood, there also appears to be a chamber where a heart should be, yet Shimuko tells you that it being empty is normal, and that you would only need to worry about it if you were a Heavenly Jewel Master. She finishes up with a crash corse on human anatomy. This is a lot to take in, but you manage. Your Heavenly Energy improving your memory and body a small bit. Shimuko tells you that your job will be to heal the blood vessels and skin after the excess merdian has been cut away and she has connected the merdians into a normal pathway. She dismisses you, saying all she needs you to do for now is remember what you need to do during the operation. Saying that tomorrow the two of you will take a trip to the Stored Skill Palace to store skills for all but your Spacial Element.

You remember when first retracting your Jewel into the Generator that you saw small regularly spaced divets on them. Yet you didn't see them the second time. You summon your Jewels. No divets. You retract them. You don't see anything but a flash. Wait, the first time you did it you would have done it slower. So you intentionally do it slow. Lo and behold. You see them, they must sit only 3mm from the surface, but they are there.

You wonder what this could mean. You start to move your Jewel around for some minor Heavenly Energy Control practice whilst you think and you see small sparks of pure Heavenly Energy forming on your Jewel at some points of the journey. You find out that the sparks form whenever you spin your Jewel. Increasing in intensity then dying down when you stop, however, you think that after a certain point these sparks will fly off the Jewel at a direction you tell them to go. The sparks form a white sphere after a while. You can't help but imagine what would happen if you release them all in one place...

haha. No. Your entire cultivation technique was around independence. This is one way to make yourself independant to your Elements and your luck, both worldly things.

You do very well. The currently three books you have on the desk allow for easy comparison. By the time for bed you have grasped sentence structure in the present tense and the knowledge needed to perform the surgery. You are excited for tomorrow. You remember when you talked to that Fire Elemental Master in the Hunter's Camp. He told you that we absorb Stored Skills from beasts themselves! You have only suffered from powerful beasts. So to gain their weapons to kill them will be cathartic.

>You have run out of time!
>Sleep
>Start of the 23rd day

You wake up early and let the attendents wash you and put you in formal dress. They say that the King himself could turn up in the Stored Skill palace at any moment to consult the selection of beasts or oversee the proceedures for you and Shimuko's Skill storing. So you need to look respectable.

You make your way to the palace with directions in mind. You find a large cave with 6 separate entrences. Smallest from left to right. You see Shimuko Standing at the 4th one. Several Darkness Element Jewel Masters with her, all 7th Jewel and above.

"Now then, we will perform the sealing for that 10 Star Saint Skill first. Then go down the list. I had not found a Saint Element Skill for my third Jewel either. This is the perfect oppirtunity. You will come face to face with an angel looking monster. Pretty, but very deadly. It will be held still by these kind Darkness Element users and other measures. Place your hand on its body and insert your Heavenly Energy. Your Jewel will do the rest. Now get in there and don't die!"

You walk in. Compared to the rest of the cave, this one is made of cut onyx, you hear the Elemental Jewel Masters walk behind you. Murmuring about whivh limb they restrain. An Upper Level Zong Stage Master is volunteering to control the head.

You reach a massive chamber at the end, then you see her. A beautiful woman. Blonde hair, pale skin, striking blue eyes, staring at you. Covered in nothing but a white sheet. Then you see her wings, pure white , large and outstreched. Her ears are slightly pointed, like small triangles.
She is bound and chained up, you can see every limb, even her wings, shaking in effort to break free. She opens her mouth. Whispering in the lonely way only a broken prisoner can do.

"I just want to help. Please let me go. Please let me be free. Will you set me free? Please let me be free."

She keeps repeating this. However as you get closer she quietens down. Realising you have come like the rest. You know she is a monster. She seems like a person....but she's just a monster.

"I just want to make people better...please help me."

You ignore her. You remember the Guard's words that as monsters cultivate they become more human. You ignore her.

You put your hand on her body. Soft to the touch. The angel starts to raise her voice. You ignore her. You move your Heavenly Energy inside her. You hear her. You feel your Jewel react and it takes something from her. You hear her scream, brutally, you can't ignore her. You dash back. Dripping with sweat. The Darkness Elemental Masters catch you. Telling you that she's just a monster. You need to go back and tell Shimuko to come in soon.

>Look

You look back. Stopping in your tracks. The angel, head low, arms drooping. Looks up one last time. Her eyes widen in suprise. You can't hear her. You see her mouth move though. Mouth trying to smile in exhaustion.

"I know you can help people. I know you can see me. One day please help me."

You turn back. The onyx halls closing in. Suffocating you in pitch black. She was intelligent. She knew what you did. You think back to the Black Cat you killed. You know she was Human.

You finally reach Shimuko.

"What took you so long? Scared of a stupid beast now are you? Some Hunter you are. Her kind start off as birds for gods' sake.Wait here; I'm going for Greater Restoration too."

She returns. Expression the same as before.

"Now then. Off to the Wind beast I organised for you. It won't be a Heavenly King Stage beast, but it will still suffice, which skill sounds best to you?"

Yeah. But using stolen ideas isn't fun for me. At least in the skill department. Tell you what when we get our next Jewel you can tell me those skills then. I haven't watched much of fairy tail. So I'm going to be oblivious to stolen ideas unless someone tells me where it is from.

You walk up to a Jade plaque with Stored Skills on them.

"What's Piercing Rapier?"

An attendent tells you. You notice that like all the attendents, he has his face covered.

"It is a 6 Star Skill which summons a rapier made of wind. You can then as the user swing or thrust the rapier to release blades of wind to target multiple ememies or use the blade as is. Many people come here and never store it successfully. The cost for trying is 5500 Gol-"

>Piercing Rapier 6 Stars, costs 40 Heavenly Energy. Rapier is plus 1d250 for standalone attack. Each wind blade that is released deals 1d80. Remember that with your cheat. Some of this can chage with training.
"We have Darkness Element users here no need to worry about that." Shimuko says.

That's when the attendent's head turns to her. "I see, thank you for coming to the Stored Skill Palace oh great Jewel Masters. I must be off now. The King wishes to be served. Goodbye."


You tell her that you want this one. You make your way down the second cave...

You think to yourself. What if this one is real too? You almost relax as what appears is a tall mechanical woman. A mere imitation of a person in a wide green ballerina dress. It becomes completely immobile when the Darkess Element attaches to its arms and legs. Sealing them.

You insert your Heavenly Energy. Taking your time to notice any important changes. You take something from it with no reaction. That's when you see your Elemental Wheel appear. You see an Angel's wing on the white section and a rapier on the green one.

You leave. You have three more Elements to store. You ask the Darkness Element users about Storing the Spacial Element. The response is unanimous.

"Fuck off you bastard!" One of them even flips you off. Guess spacial must be really dangerous. You're not sure what it even does yet.

Shimuko reads to you the Water Element Plaque.

I see a lot of potential with our cheat for something like this, personally I'd like something like kamikaze fish or summoning an entire school of fish to smother any incoming attacks or even freezing/sticking to whatever they touch

Ok. All good ideas, but people need to vote on one only. If no votes are made in the next 3 minutes I will be rolling for it.

There is also the main problem that the majority of my players are not available to be here in the morning. So after water. I will stop the quest temporarily and continue at 16:00 hours. In the 8 hours between then and now. I should have my computer back, and I will be thinking up new Skills for Life and Lightning.

You want some defencive options. Especially as if you encounter an ememy with a lot of firepower. They can take you out in one hit. So you choose a water Skill called Kinetic Barrier. A 5 Star Stored Skill that forms a flexible barrier of partially frozen water, making its consistency closer to sludge. Which can block or absorb attacks which hit it.

>Kinetic Barrier, 5, 70 Heavenly Energy forms a flexible yet durable barrier where the user summons it; it is 3 times the size of the user and its shape can be changed. >Will block 5 attacks under 2000 damage. >Will break if encountered by an attack above this or more than 5 attacks. Notibly lacks a way to attack, only defend.


>Be back at 16:00 BST, think of Lightning and Life ideas for Skills in that time. Life focuses on healing, treating disease and animal evolution. Lightning is pure damage but can be used in inventive ways. Like at the 10 Star level, where there is a Skill which can turn you into lightning. Allowing you to zip through the clouds at lightning speed.
>>
>>3672388
>Lightning
Armour of the Thunder God, Level 5 skill.
Creates a coating of lightning around its user's skin which repels metals and burns those who touch it. Moreover, it can consume Lightning-element attacks of a lower ranking and sustain itself with the Heavenly Energy within those attacks, but is dispelled by Wind-element skills.

Does this work?
>>
>>3672388
> Double Lightning Shooting, Rank 1 Attack Skill, uses the electric field between two lightnings to shoot very small projectiles, costs 20 Heavenly Energy, has high evolutionary potential (es. Faster shooting, multiple shooting, angular and delayed shooting).
>>
>>3672388
> Golden Fist of Life, Rank 6 Life Attack/Debuff Skill, charges the user's fist with Life energy to be transferred upon impact, overcharging the target's nerve system and causing muscular spasms and in the worst cases, cancerous growth in the impacted area. Costs 85 Heavenly Energy.
>>
>>3672401
No. It does too much for a 5 star.
Lightning is a 2nd stage Element, so all skills are 4 Stars or above.
Something like absorbing an attack would be a signature ability, also expensive. Lightning is weak to Earth. Is complimentary to Wind.

For example

>Charging Gattling Barrage 7 Stars. Costs 100 Heavenly Energy to produce the glattling. Will form a minigun out of lighning which can be held in on one arm. Can absorb Lightning Element attacks, even your own and build up a charge which can be released as a barrage if lightning bullets. Deals damage total to the Lightning absorbed.


Lightning Armour would be a 9 Star and above skill. Increasing the natural lightning resistance you have to unimaginable heights and with physical contact has a chance to paralyse the person who touched it.

For Stored Skills you need to focus on one idea, like aoe or single attack or buffing. They are specific uses of Heavenly Energy to create a desired effect so nothing to vague or wide spread would be better. Magnestism, absorbtion, armour and electrical burns are separate specialisations.

>>3672437
This is a much better attempt. Focusing on an initial set up and projectiles. However you would need Heavenly Energy to supply excess projectiles.

A reminder that at Master Heavenly Energy Control you can attempt to make your own Skills on the fly without the need for an imprint from a beast. The Stored Skills are still very useful for you though as there technically is no limit to how they can grow, including decreasing the cost of said Skills.
>>
>>3672439
I can certainly work with the overstimulation bit, however you are not actually healing a muscle or anything. So it wouldn't inflict a tumour or anything. You could just go with a self or aoe healling skill. AfteĊ• all you are very squishy at the moment.
>>
>>3672440
Interesting.

>Golden Spear, Rank 4 Attack Skill, Costs 65 Heavenly Energy
>Creates a lance of lightning that shoots out from the user's hand with incredible force.
Basically a point-and-shoot beam without any special properties.
What about this?
>>
>>3672461
Yes. This is good. I would in fact change the Heavenly Energy cost to basically however much you want, as you can boost Stored Skills with your Heavenly Energy Control.
>>
>>3672474
Thought I should post this as a review of your current skill list.

Saint: Greater Restoration 10 Stars, 120 Heavenly Energy, heals a major wound and fully recovers all Stamina.

Wind: Piercing Rapier 6 Stars, costs 40 Heavenly Energy. S Rapier is plus 1d250 for standalone attack. Each wind blade that is released deals 1d80. Remember that with your cheat. Some of this can change with training. "It is a 6 Star Skill which summons a rapier made of wind. You can then as the user swing or thrust the rapier to release blades of wind to target multiple ememies or use the blade as is." Obtained with Quads of evolution.

Water: Kinetic Barrier, 5 Stars, 70 Heavenly Energy forms a flexible yet durable barrier where the user summons it; it is 3 times the size of the user and its shape can be changed. Will block 5 attacks under 2000 damage. Will break if encountered by an attack above this or more than 5 attacks. Notibly lacks a way to attack, only defend.

You walk into the chamber alone, instead of chains you find a massive clear crystal box. A similar sized creature, a Blue Slime, sits in the middle, nothing denoting an expression identifying it as intelligent. One of the Darkness Element users speaks up, telling you that the vast majority of Water Element beasts need special methods of containment. You repeat the process if inserting your Heavenly Energy and drawing out a skill, a navy sphere appearing on the blue section of the circle in your mind's eye.

Shimuko tells you that we need to move on to the Life Element, she reads out the plaque.

Success

You walk down a lit hallway, different to the others. You ask the Darkness Element users why and they say that with this beast only able to heal itself and tank hits, it isn't very dangerous, so they can allow more liberty for the person storing a Skill. The only problem is that the thing locked away is not cooperative.

You meet a Jade statue, angular and glowing with energy, it is held in place by chains of ice and it is completely still.

You store its main skill. Seeing an emerald appear on the camo-green section of your Element wheel.

Shimuko tells you we have one last trip to the Lightning section of the Palace.

You decide on something low cost, high return, maybe you can supply the Heavenly Energy for this with your Jewel's Sparks.


You are lead to a large black room, covered in metal and amethyst. It is cold, uncomfortable and dim. Apart from the people and the beast inside, you can't sense any Heavenly Energy.

"I need to provide an explanation before you meet this...beast. It is actually a Heavenly Emperor Stage Beast. It is our only Lightning Element monster, and some wouldn't even call it a beast, you see whilst some Lightning Element beasts are organic, the majority are robotic, fueled by the energy in Electricity itself, it's how we power the Inner City, a place someon like you has probably never been to. It started off as a tiny metal mouse, cute, gave you small shocks if you pet it. What we didn't know was that with every touch it absorbed a tiny bit of Heavenly Energy. It grew, changing form until we had to lock it up, its shocks could actually kill people. That was our biggest mistake. It used the Heavenly Energy to change and grow into something almost unstoppable. It escaped once; killed thousands of people before a younger King and his retainers captured it by reversing time for it until it became weak enough that we could re-contain it and make a specialised fortress for it. It probably has dozens of Lightning Elemental Skills locked in there. The one you're going for is located in one of the "Crowd Deterrent Systems" we found after a Heavenly Emperor Stage Lightning Master took a deep spiritual look at it. We know there is one in that massive tube on its shoulder, but we've found nothing yet. I wish you the very best of luck, some people stronger than you have been seriously injured, but you have our help if it means anything."

Compared to the existential fear of meeting the angel. All you feel is fear for your life as this massive machine towers above you, you feel the Darkness Element barely touching you. You feel the cruel steel of the leg. You insert your Heavenly Energy. Everything is fine.

"CHURCHUCUCUURHUUCHURHUURUHRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!

You hear the thing scream, like two swords scratching against each other. You steel yourself. You have help. You will be fine. You rip out the Skill, image of a rail-gun forming on the purple section.

"BRZZTZZZTZTTZBRTREAEAAAAACHCHCHC"

"DIEIEIEIEIEIE" "PAINPAINPAINPAINPAIN" "BADADADADADADAD"

Its voice starts to flicker, voice rising in intensity.

"It shouldn't be doing that! Get out now! Call backup! RUN!"

You run as fast as you can, hearing screeching and loud banging and screaming behind you.

"FUCK! We need some healing! Someone get reinforcements!"

You see the rest of the Dark Element users standing by the monster, using skills to weaken it enough and for long enough for reinforcements to arrive. They will not last long and need some help

She stands up and rejoins the weakening efforts.

After about two minutes later you hear a voice you have heard before, the King, behind you.

May the truth be revealed

You dash to the side of the cave as fast as you can. Then the other Elemental Masters do so as well, letting the beasts full power come to light. breaking its chains

You look to see the King, standing opposite, strangely covered in bruises and bleeding. You see a flash from all twelve Icy Jade Jewels, the first eleven Jewels form magnificent blue and green armour. A helmet, breastplate, right arm, left arm, left leg, right leg, back-plate, a pair of boots, a pair of gauntlets, a left thigh and right thigh. The Jewels change colour, a mostly deep blue with splotches of green on the breastplate, also on the breastplate are the sun and moon, circling each other in an endless loop. His last Jewel becomes a large silver pocket watch, he opens it, to reveal 12 circular slots, each at one of the 12 hours on a clock. The 12 Alexandrite Jade Jewels move from his left wrist, fitting one each into the slots. He closes the pocket watch. Then moves some controls on the back. as he does so, he speaks out

"Time Reversal: 5 Minutes, Single Target"

The Mech starts to move back erratically, moving backwards in its own time. Until it becomes stationary.

He looks at you. Smiling.

"Do not worry, in this new timeline, you don't come and disturb him, you still have that Stored Skill OK?"

After that is over. The King congratulates you on your first skill storing and that if you had any questions he was sure he could answer as a small apology for the incident.

Well, It's probably too strong for a cultivator of our level, but a space skill that will allow one to increase or decrease the distance in between two things. Making a swing at something ten feet away, then pulling it close with your skill to land it in any case.
>>
>>3675810
standard short range teleportation is a 5 star skill, merely affecting the space traveled by a sword swing should actually be a farely simple spatial skill, jsut very hard to achieve by pure spaatial energy manipulation

I'm back from work finally. This skill idea is interesting.

>Blink 6 Star Skill. 40 Heavenly Energy. Can instantly teleport within a few metres of where you are to another place in your vision. Evolution in increasing the distance, no limit to vision and affecting targets other than you.

Vs

>Space Jump 6 Star Skill. Can remove the actual distance between two things. Be they objects or people. Such as with higher amounts of Heavenly Energy, making it so that there is no space between the ventricles and atrium of the heart, changing the pressures and crushing it.

Something like Telekinesis would be a 10 Star and above Skill due to how versatile it is.

>Ask about Angel

You want to know more about the angel beast you met in the Saint chamber. She was different to any monster you had ever met.

He puts his hand on your shoulder, you suddenly realise you can't move.

"I see, having second thoughts about her are you? I can assure you she is a monster, she healed monsters during a conflict nearby the wasteland, causing the deaths of tens of Jewel Masters. She has paid for that in her captivity. She seems to have heightened pain during Skill storing but you know as well as I do that you do not let a monster of the 4 Great Elements go. I have seen that time and time again. One of my assisstants told me that she did not treat you like others, we are of the opinion she is merely trying to seduce you and abuse your age for her own advantage. If you must see her again. Remember, monsters are the enemy of mankind. Only trust your friends, family and the future. A monster is none of those."

You feel his hand still on your shoulder.

"Anything else?, as the King I consider everyone to be my future, anything I know you may know too."

"Oh nothing just the ramblings of an old man. This Palace has every Element at its disposal. Spacial is a special case. Why don't we ask one of the Darkness Users about it. Geng Fei could you come here for a second? "

"Yes, Your Majesty!"

"Why do those seeking help storing spacial skills never get it? This young man has come here specially for a rare opportunity to store skills at our esteemed Stored Skill Palace, yet those asigned to him refused to aid him."

"Your Majesty. If I may be blunt. It is suicide to step into the same room with something that can warp space so that your head is 5 miles away from your body yet you still live in a matter of moments. They take much to restrain, as some can teleport. Some can bend you in half with a look. There is no escape with something that can make the escape route longer in seconds. I am imcredibly sorry young man-"

"Zou-Do-Shai." The King says.

"I am incredibly sorry, Spacial Element user Zou-Do-Shai, but there is too much risk involved. Only those who can control space can even oppose them, and the number of peolple with both Spacial and Darkness is probably in the single digits. You will have to try on your own."

He steps back. Bowing to the King as he does so.

"You see? Spacial Element users are very valuable, not only for Consolidated Equipment creation but for battle. They are versatile. However the same is true for the monsters. I wish you the very best of luck. By the way, could you show me your Jewel? For someone to have both Saint and Spacial I must simply see it for myself."

"No need to apologise. Time is a limited resource after all. I will be present during the pre and post operation for Jiang so I will see you then. One more thing."

He hands you a larger version of the Cultivation Tool you have.

"This is a downpayment for the surgery. I hope you suceed."

"I don't think I trust that man. He keeps lying to me. Remember how he asked to see your Jewels? My Saint Element felt his sin of lying. He has seen them before. I can't tell when or where but do not trust anything he says to you. He is obsessed with the future, always trying to coax people to join the clan. Now that he knows you know about the value of the Spacial Element he will stop at nothing to make you a Consolidated Equipment Master. You do not want that. It is a horrid life of pain and sacrifice for nothing but money."

You make it into a state of the art medical facility.

Yeah, this is far closer to what I meant. Ideally it'd be able to do the reverse as well, but I figured it'd bee too much for a tier one.
>>
>>3676286
Keep in mind that he has built his powerset on being able to reverse time a few hundred years when he wants. Which is why he looked bruised when fighting something 1 Jewel below him, he spent a few timelines being demolished by it. His actual fighting power is not the highest, and in a fight between other Heavenly God Stage Jewel Masters he would loose every time. He is not the only 12 Jewelwed person in this world.

>>3676266
Nice! Writing now

>>3676342
I'm afraid that won't be a possibility, there is a reason it is a 3rd stage element, and the ritual you mention was clan specific, I don't want to spoil it but you won't have an opportunity to get Time. Saint is just as good as Time, just in a different way.

Everything goes smoothly, you are working with a dummy version of meridians of course but you appear to be a natural! When you activate Greater Restoration again the Heavenly Energy is supplied by technology you have never even seen before, channelling it directly into your Jewel, healing the blood vessels and the initial wound perfectly

>Basic Surgical Technique 0/20 acquired!

With that done, Shimuko tells you that with your success today, the surgery will take place tomorrow, with the day after counting as the post op.

She tells you that you can see Princess Jiang now, before the surgery to calm her mind, or you could get some sleep, your choice.

You want to talk to her at least, she seemed excited at the prospect of cultivation.

You find her being attended by several Life Element doctors, all 9 Jewels, the very best. They take one look at you and say you shouldn't be here, and that a Princess need only to speak to family and close friends. Jiang tells them to be quiet and let you in.

She looks nervous, for obvious reasons. Then she asks something you never expected to hear.

"Why are you here in the Palace? You only broke through to the second level a few days ago, I know dad thinks you have promise, but he's seen you literally once in his entire life...I think Shimuko told me I would be getting some help during the surgery, are you that help? I thought you were a Hunter not a doctor? Tell me what you here for. I want to know everything."

You release your Jewel. You want her to know even someone like you can be lucky. You don't keep it hidden from the attendants. Who finally know how important you are to Jiang's health and surgery. They leave you to be alone with Jiang Dershwa for a bit.

"I...what!"

She starts to cry a bit, smiling as much as she can.

"We spent a decade looking for the Saint Element, then as soon as I meet you we gain not one but two!"

She stands up and hugs you, happy for both you and her. She just stands their for a minute, thinking on what to say first.

"I...please keep me safe tomorrow OK? Some of my sisters came to see me today, they all said they were happy for me, but some were lying through their teeth. I've waited so long for this. I want you to know that I trust you and Shimuko to heal me."

She lets go of you.

"I'm so happy for your awakening! 6 Elements is rare even in Heavenly Jewel Masters, Lets see what else you have...Wind, Water...Life..Lightning! Spacial! You're practically a genius already! No wonder dad gave you that medal. I know that when I awaken I will be a Heavenly Jewel Master...sort of just runs in the family. No idea what I could get though."

You thank her for the congratulations, and ask if there's anything you could do to make her more comfortable during the surgery.

"Well...dad said that he'll be hanging around after the surgery, but I think I just want some time alone. I know he really worries about me, he worries about everyone. Just try and let me have some privacy. Ah and about that Shimuko tells me that clothes will just get in the way, so try not to peek or anything."

"So, do you have any questions for me? You could be here a few more days and you are my saviour so I can't just leave you in the dark." She smiles playfully, a lot less nervous than before.

Ask about her condition, why someone at the 11 Jewel level with life give birth to a child with a disabling condition.
Ask about the angel and Railgun Mech.

>>3677077
I don't really xia images will be appropriate, they tend to focus on much older characters than were dealing with. I also haven't really decided on what Zou-Do-Shai looks like, he could have blond hair blue eyes or any other colours, all I decided on was that when you fully mature, you would be decently attractive and have paler skin than most people, lending to your Saint Element, which would make you closer to the physique of an angel i.e white.

Most of these have answers but she doesn't know that much. Writing
>>
You certainly have a lot of questions. but you feel like this is the perfect opportunity to make her laugh.

"Should I wear a blindfold?"

She looks at you smugly

"No need, I have Shimuko to protect me. Not even that Spacial Element of yours can overcome a 2 Jewel difference. Unless you had X-Ray vision...well that's a 10 Star Spacial Skill, no chance you have it now."

"You doubt me that much already? I already have 1 10 Star Skill, why not another?"

"Oh...I see you met Shara."

"Shara? Is that the angel's name?"

"Yeah, she's a bit unnerving for someone like me, she can only see my hair as a symbol of my father, so she doesn't like me all to well. My eldest sister managed to convince her that we aren't exactly like him, but I don't think she trusts me fully."

You put that information in the back of the brain for now, family politics is more important.

"Talking of, I never learnt much about the Dershwa family in the orphanage, just so I don't insult somebody important, could you give me a crash course?

2/4 fuck
>>
"Sure! I know my family really well...I spent most of my youth here in the palace, training to be better, learning royal manners, learning how to be a princess, so I got to see people whenever they came home from a job or cultivation, I liked learning about the world, it was all so different to the palace, even if it sounded horrible, mum would go out on long trips especially for pictures of far away places, I still have them in my room, when I get a chance to show you I'm definitely doing so! Oh right! Firstly there are my mother and father, you've seen them. I spent most of my life with mum; dad was too busy being king and everything. Then there are my 5 sisters, now 5 is a lot until you know I also have 5 aunts. Dad seems destined to only have daughters. The eldest, Fei Dershwa, is really talented with music, she has the Wind Element and she uses it to make any sound she wants, I remember when I was really young that I kept pestering her to play something for me, and she always did. She's my favourite if I has to pick. Next is Sun-Di Dershwa, she's very much a fighter, I bet if she walked in here now she would challenge you to a fight, even though there's a 9 Jewel difference, she inherited dad's Icy Jade Jewels so she is really strong. Then we have Shian Dershwa, she's the head of the Darkness department, she's always working so I never really met her all to often, but she always seemed tired, not in the usual way, just tired of something. Then there's Jessica Dershwa, her mother's from Miller, so she was named in the way they do things, I saw her in the castle a lot, she's the head of the Elemental Research department, so is really curious about people's Stored Skills and Jewels, like dad is, try not to go near her alright? She'll ask dad to make you a research subject and no-one, not even me would see you again. Lastly there's the second youngest, Shan-Bai Dershwa, we don't get along well...she never treated me like a member of the family, due to my condition and when the surgery was announced she stormed right in and said she was going to kill the people who were going to heal me. We are rarely in the same place...but just like Jessica, stay clear, she has 3 Elements and 9 Dragonstone Jade Jewels, you'd be dead within a second, literally. Then there's me, only 14, my mother and dad are the same age but he only met her 20 years ago on a reconnaissance mission in the wasteland, found her caring for some folk who were strong enough to make it in, but too weak to escape. Love bloomed from there."
>>
You take a second to process all of that. Then tell her your own friends and family

"Wow, I only had a childhood friend and the people at the orphanage to worry about. Do you ever get tired of it? I mean you live in the same building as that Railgun Mech. Then there's all that to worry about."

"Oh it's fine, I first met him when he was a really small mouse, but in ten years he grew so much. I'm sure he still remembers me as the pretty girl who pet him every time he asked. Didn't even have any Heavenly Energy for him to eat so there must have been another reason for him to keep coming back."

"Do you get many marriage offers? If a monster can like you so could people right?"

She looks down, it seems you've hit a bad spot

"Well, my mum says that we do get some, but they want me as a trophy, they don't even want kids, because they think my condition is inheritable. So we say no to them every time. Not even surgery could fix a genetics problem."

"Do you know why you have it?"

"My mum is confused about it all, she told me once that it was like carrying a half normal half immortal person when she was pregnant. She thinks that dads Time Element got in the way and because of this she lost control during the birthing. Either way it won't matter now that you came to help right?"

She smiles at you again.

That's when the doctors come in, demanding they can finish their job.

You decide to leave, and...

You awaken with a mission in mind, you are dressed in surgical gear from head to toe at the operating room, you join Shimuko inside, with the covered and unconcious body of Jiang Dershwa laying on the operating table, her abdomen exposed as the effected area. You're ready, you can do this.

Shimuko makes the opening incision. Many tools and precautions in place to catch the blood and recycle it back into Jiang Dershwa's bloodstream.

She uses the Life and Light Elements to reveal her meridians, a normally spiritual organ now brought to the physical realm.

She makes the cuts at the precise points, then slowly reseals the Heavenly Energy Channels. Using the Saint Element. Blank Heavenly Energy is run through them to check there are no leaks or defects. Everything looks fine. However Shimuko's job is not done yet, she makes the meridians spiritual again, then activates her Saint Element, this is where you must step in and help with the healing, after all, there is a major wound in Jiang Dershwa's abdomen.

You get out of your surgical wear and are forced by some attendants to put on some formal wear. The King is waiting outside the surgery room.

You walk out and see him in holding the silver pocket watch you saw during the fight with the Railgun Mech.

"Did the operation go well?"

"Yes, Princess Jiang is being attended by Shimuko. Who has said that she doesn't want anyone else to see Princess Jiang until she is cleared. The surgery was a success"

You see him start to cry.

"14 years we spent looking for a way to heal her. Now that it's done I can't help but feel happy. I know Shimuko said that no-one could see my daughter, but as a King, shouldn't an exception be standard?"

"You can see her when her sister isn't trying to kill the both of us."

He stops at that.

"I..I knew things were tense between the two, but death? I can't let that happen to the ones who saved my daughter now can I? I am busy with talks with the King of Miller today, but you are safe under my watch. Consider yourself forever a friend to the Dershwa family."

That's when Shimuko leaves the operating room.

"What do you think you're doing here, get lost! I told you yesterday that nobody could see her until I personally cleared her, go!"

Taking the hint, he leaves

"Zou, consider yourself on leave until both the post op is over and we have our payment. You will receive a weapon, a new cultivation tool and a gift of your own choosing, I suggest you ask for some help in storing a Spacial Skill. Now be off with you!"

You take this opportunity to go back to your room. You don't know when the post op will be over but you know that Jiang will be safe in the hands of Shimuko.

You don't need to wish, I'm not a genie of any kind.

>Try out a New Element+Piercing Rapier

With all these new Skills, you come to the sudden realisation that you haven't used all of your Elements, only Saint. Time to fix that.

You find a good area to train and summon your Jewel. Looking at your colour wheel you focus on the green section with the rapier on it, you first start by generating Heavenly Energy straight into the Jewel.

>Heavenly Energy (HE) is now 125

You feel a wind fill your body and a thin green film covers your skin and clothes. Pushing you in every direction at once. You take a step forward and are forced to an unimaginable speed through it, loosing control. Okay, it makes you faster, twice as fast you reckon. You take a few more steps to reinforce that idea. You feel like you could go faster if you put in more Heavenly Energy, but you want to try out Piercing Rapier.

>When using the Wind Element, Agility doubles, for example for the afternoon your speed is now 90, but you need more Heavenly Energy to make it last beyond that.
>You can also boost this effect, 1 Heavenly Energy to 1 point of Agility, making your maximum Agility without equipment 215 if you use all of your Heavenly Energy.

You generate more Heavenly Energy into your Jewel, aiming to use the skill

>HE is now 85

In your right hand a rapier made of wind sits, about a metre and a quarter long.

You walk up to the training dummy and take a swing, no extra blades

>Roll 1d307 best of three, (250 sword, 15 sword technique, 42 strength)

You smash the dummy in a way you've never seen before. Wind cutting it it shreds. This is the most powerful attack you've ever dealt. You can't imagine what it could do to that Wind Wolf you met 3 weeks ago.

You have 85 HE

>Lightning and Double Lightning Shot

You don't dispel your rapier, but do change to the Lightning Element, dispelling the wind that pushes you forward.

>You have 35 HE

Lightning covers your body, sparking and glittering in reds, blues, purples, golds and greens, a rainbow of colours. You don't sense any physical changes but with this power you could probably mess with electronics with good enough Heavenly Energy Control.

You decide to use the skill from the Railgun Mech. You remember its power and have high hopes.

You use the Skill, around your fist you see a vibration in the air, from two golf balls of purple lightning form, you move them forward at an explosive speed! They hit the wall and disperse, leaving two small melted sections, one a lot smaller than the other.

You don't have much Heavenly Energy left, you can't use any of your Stored Skills, but you can try the Water Element.

>Indepedent Charge with a surprise

You want to see what those sparks you generated a few days ago can do.

You rotate your Jewel faster and faster, after a certain point no more sparks are generated. Instead of flying out, they stay there. You know that you could supply Double Lightning Shot with this, and you're about to do so, until you here shouts from the adjacent hallway from some of the attendants, you notice that their voices are straining to shout.

"Everyone get to an emergency shelter!" "That damn Mouse has got out again!" "The King is in Miller and reinforcements are coming soon!" "If you do not run you will die!" "Some are gone already!"

You activate Wind again, you need to follow the crowd.

It is separate, you dispelled it when using the Lightning Element but re applied it when running
>You missed the DC for Jiang, but you do see one of her sisters

You immediately hear a clear female voice on the opposite side.

"Everyone please remain calm, you have my word as Princess Fei Dershwa that everything will be fine. Reinforcements are-"

"BOOOOOM"

A massive explosion is heard above. People begin to scream.

"REMAIN CALM!" Fei Dershwa orders. Her Jet Black hair and light blue eyes stand out a lot.

In seconds the room becomes silent.

"I ask that if you can, you get some sleep. I personally need to make a call."

She asks an assistant for a communicator.

She presses 6 buttons, then you see her click on something else. Then she begins a call.

You hear in your mind, her voice.

"Hello, is this Zou-Do-Shai?"

"Yes"

"Oh thank the Dao, Jiang seems to care about you a lot, since the surgery all she wanted me to do was meet you so I wanted to make sure you are safe. Are you Okay?"

"I'm in the same shelter as you."

She looks around for a bit. Then spots you, you nod back.

"I know this isn't the best place for an introduction, but I wish you a warm welcome, my name is Fei Dershwa. I need you to know that everything is going to be Okay. Jiang is safe. Shimuko is safe. We have 3 Heavenly Emperor Masters delaying Squeak's path."

"Squeak?"

"I call him that, don't judge me I knew him before you were even born!"

You back off.

"We're going to be here for a good hour, so make yourself comfortable. I can't talk to you now. I have the Wind Element so I'm transferring messages across to people."

By the time you have finished the all clear is sounded. People make their way back to whatever they were doing. You see Fei Dershwa relax a bit. Then walks over to you. You get a better look at her now. She looks physically about 22, tall, and thin.

"Hello, it's very nice to meet you. My apologies for this incident, we don't like to make things like this a habit I assure you. Would you like to follow me for a bit or are you busy? I heard from Jiang you have the Wind Element and want to see what you can do. For reference I am a Heavenly King Stage Master, so I think I can provide some tips."

"This is my personal training room, it is made for Wind Skills. You did store one didn't you?"

"Yes"

"Well show it to me then."

You summon the Piercing Rapier.

"I don't recognise that Skill...Is it a specialised version of Wind Blade?"

She summons her 10 Jewels, her physical Jewels are Dragonstone Jade. She is optimised for agility.

She makes a person out of wind.

She first uses a Skill, a tornado appears around her fist like a drill. Then it continues to get larger and larger.

She punches her own dummy.

The wind released pummels the air around her, buffeting you with the blow.

You see around you several Tourmaline lines in the walls which absorb the impact to the surroundings.

"Now I know you're just an Elemental Jewel Master, but that kind of power you should be able to do one day."

"I want to help you develop your Wind Control. Skills are great but Heavenly Energy Control is really the one you want for being in the top ranks. I'll train you for a bit. If you want to remain being Jiang's friend or bodyguard if you decide to do that you need to be stronger. I suggest meeting my sister Jessica, she can be scary but I'll tell her to lay off you, she can help you immensely with cultivation and other things. She's also working on a secret project so you might get a small glimpse, as far as I know it's a kind of medicine but no more. Now lets do this."

1 caveat to this device. The recipient needs Jewels. Fei Dershwa, befitting her Wind Element, can be a bit airheaded, and has grown up in a place where almost everyone has jewel. Jiang has not begun Cultivation. Can't do this now. You can call Shimuko and ask for her condition.

"Good Morning! I spent most the night coming up with the training regime so I know exactly what you'll be doing."

She points to a short sentence on the board, for the first time in your life, you can read it.

"Intensive Agility Training"

"The backbone off the Wind Element is agility, so I need you to run for about an hour."

What.

She then points to another section of the board

"Heavenly Energy Control"

"This is the basics, I did some revision and I think I can push you to the brink for some big improvements, some of the stuff said it was "Hazardous to health" or something but you have the Life Element I'm sure you'll be fine."

What.


"Lastly will be a special technique of mine, you know the one I make music with? If you are going to be around Jiang a lot then I want you to know how to do it so she isn't bored when cultivating."

She summons her 10 pairs of Jewels. Then pushes you along with some wind.

"BOOOOM!" a sonic boom appears right behind her, apparently she can move at the speed of sound in an instant, what joy.

"Oh my Dao are you alright?!"

She holds your chest to her ear, she didn't think you were dead right?

"I'm alive...just let me rest a bit"

You sit on a wall and take a look at the clock, you need some lunch.

After lunch Fei Dershwa tells you that she won't be able to train you for the afternoon, so you had free reign to recover for tomorrow.

"Hell no you don't! I'm taking you with me anyway Saint boy!"

She starts carrying you, you think you know who this is but just to make sure...

"Jessica Dershwa?"

"My name, test subject, you best remember it."

You feel an unimaginable light blind you and knock you out.

You wake up in a cell, you see that your Jewel is out, even the divets are showing. You are connected to lots of medical and analytical equipment. You do not have any of your equipment.

You need to get out and call someone who can help you keep it that way.

"I dunno. probably one of the director's pet projects."

Another one interjects.

"I think it was the boy who healed Princess Jiang's condition. The director told me one time that he has an interesting set of Elements. Like 6! That's like that Elemental Hunter girl from the centra; hunters and you know what she can do."

"Wait, if Princess Jiang is indebted to him, shouldn't we let him go?"

"If you want your eyes laser'd out sure, I'm not taking that chance."

"Fair enough."

You find a selection of computers, and a communicator!

>Call Fei Dershwa

You need help, and fast. Calling the King could be dangerous and Fei Dershwa has already experienced telepathy with you.

"Fei Dershwa this is Zou-Do-Shai calling to apologise for not showing up for training because your sister Jessica Dershwa has kidnapped me! I need help and fast."

"I...so that's why you weren't in training, I've been sitting here all morning waiting for you and where do you turn up, in a lab somewhere! Let me call my sister and see if things can't be arranged."

She hangs up, her voice fading from your mind

You keep waiting, this call is taking a lot longer than you thought it would. Soldiers run around, almost catching you.

That's when the speakers in the ceiling activate.

"BRRZT, This is Fer Dershwa, first Princess of the Dershwa Clan speaking to the Elemental Research Department. As I understand it a young boy called Zou-Do-Shai has been taken from my personal tutelage by my sister Jessica, fourth Princess. If he would be kindly returned from his unlawful imprisonment I won't be forced to come get him myself, thank you."

The soldiers all stop at that.

"What do we do sir?"

"Stop looking for him, the director may be our boss but you do not argue with the woman in direct line to the throne. She also said that kid was under her personal tutelage. In other words. she is supporting his claim for a profession within the castle. Hell this guy is basically Jiang Dershwa's saviour! She may as well be supporting his claim for marriage!"

He leans into a special communicator on his breastplate.

"All units! Stand down!"

The speaker's in the ceiling sound again

"BRRZT, SCREW YOU FEI! I TOLD YOU HE'S TOO IMPORTANT TO LET GO, DON'T LISTEN TO HER, MEN!"

You see them wince at the loud voice.

"She never tells us anything important, why is this kid so valuable anyway?"

"Probably something 'too complicated for morons like you' to understand."

"I'm siding with the first Princess on this one."

"Me too."

"Should we go look for him then? The Princess said she wanted him returned."

"Nah, the kid's probably scared out of his life. Just wait for Fei Dershwa to come get him."

You see the soldiers fan out and go back in the direction of the barracks.

You decide to wait it out here, finding a locker to hide in.

A few hours later Fei Dershwa calls you again, asking for directions to your hiding spot. On the way she finds a small brown bag with your equipment in it.

"Hello! Are you Okay?"

"You nod weakly, you've been sitting in one position for a long time, it was quite uncomfortable.

You make it back to the training room by lunchtime, Jessica Dershwa doesn't come to find you again, at least for today.

"Now then, I can train you for the afternoon, but if you want a rest after that ordeal then it's fine by me."

HE is 110

"Phew, you never can talk around those things."

She walks in and closes the door behind her.

"Things?"

"Yeah they're all robots, never know where they broadcast their audio data, notice the perpetual face cloth? Anyway a few days ago we noticed a strange phenomenon in one of the training rooms, without a subsequent drop in someplace else, the Heavenly Energy density increased. We connected this to when you both dispelled your wind rapier and...something else. I know about that spinning charge on your Jewel. All I want is the opportunity to find out why it happens and how to replicate it. I hope you understand that this matter is of the utmost importance. I don't need you to stay with the Elemental Research Department all the time but a few hours would be great."

"What would I get out of this?" You pre-dial Fei Dershwa, this sounds pretty sketchy.

"A better cultivation tool, money and private training with me. I happen to be an expert in the use of the Elements, and can help you secure a Spacial Skill too."

"I want an answer in the next 5 minutes. I have personally bowed my head to Fei and promised to not hurt you during the tests. If you refuse you will continue the cycle of death and fighting we need to do with beasts. This isn't just about you, it's about all Dershwa City!

"Well, it came as a co-product from trying to develop a medicine that can make Elemental and Physical Jewel Masters into Heavenly Jewel Masters, this involved a lot of study into how Power Jewels awaken, we made the first step in making a medicine that can help someone who is too old to awaken their Jewels progress to the next level. That's the prototype. The main problem is that it is poisonous to those who have Jewels of Power."

"Is that what you give to bad test subjects?"

"No! Some just die because they're too weak! Seriously what Jewel Master can't take a full day's work! We have most of them testing out newly discovered Skills, of course if they try and use a Skill they don't have enough Heavenly Energy for...well we know for next time."

"Right...ah about that what job does this place even do? All I have seen are the cells."

"We make and design and research the stuff everyone else uses and maintains. Most of the tax money goes straight to me. The assistants, the Heavenly Energy extraction machines the weapons the communicators. Everything was thought and built here."

"For how long? The Palace is huge!"

"Well funny thing is that it only feels huge because of the Spacial Element making rooms where they shouldn't exist. Thousands of people life and die here, it's like a separate country. Dad started the foundation about 500 years ago and others built upon it."

"500 years? How much of that were you involved with?"

"Hmph, rude. For your information I'm only 130 and I still look 19; I took over when I was 20!"

You stare into the shadows around her eyes. You can't imagine her face without them. She implied that she was beautiful, but she doesn't look very healthy.

"110 years of research, what are you doing now?"

"Well the Heavenly Master medicine is the main project, but other things include a piece of equipment to help Darkness users to survive storing a Spacial Skill without the Spacial Element. There's the space program, the flying castle project, and finally you!"

"I know you want to know more about the Heavenly Energy generation, but what if this isn't replicate-able?"

"I don't care, if we want to progress we need the Energy and the core farms we have now aren't cutting it."

"Wow, didn't think to ask me first huh?"

"What? No of course not, a daughter of the King himself needed you that's all the fucking incentive you need. Fei, the damn airhead, thinks people need a personal reason, but in every case, even yours, all I need to do is offer you something like money or a tool and they come running."

"You must be nice at parties."

"I'll have you know I'm an excellent dancer! It's just no-one else seems to think in this fucking place. Even Jiang, the poor girl, hates me, I did everything in my power to help and 7 years later to the month she thinks i'm some sort of psycho!"

*DING*

"Ah looks like its done, right. I need you to build up that charge for me Okay?"
