The blades of vengeances have fallen swiftly. The shinobi are no more as 'Absolute Justice' has returned...now, it is the Samurai that rule the Five Major Nations!
But at what cost? Have they become the very thing that they despised the most...? Heroes and villains seem to change roles every day, but one thing is for certain - we yearn for our freedom, for days gone by where we flew the skies unhindered.

-> Players Begin 45 Meters Apart -> Challenger is granted first turn affack (Optional) -> Site rules apply as normal -> May the better shinobi Win
A being-a Sungagakure, one whose identity is unknown to the senses of shinobi outside the said village. Seigen, placed him under the guise of a simple shinobi whose nature and intentions remained obscured to those who knew not the lore of this his purpose, yet such guises wouldl prove senseless against the imminent danger that was soon to be at hand.
Each step was easily miles apart from the last as he treaded across a open desert, every few moments, the boy halted just long enough for a glimpse of his form to be seen by lesser trained eyes should something had been observing him, but who would dare?. His black hair hair swayed with the winds, as the constant shuffle of his gourd sung through the air. Why had he been in such a hurry? None would know, there was no point in needing to. All that needed to be known was that he'd been absent from Sunagakure for far too long, full well knowing that his presence was being surveyed by the something or someone, he needed not to waste time.
Several steps, minutes of travel, and finally, the being came to a standing rest as he masterfully read his world map. Had been lost? No, not in his own country, he simply needed to double check his path of walk, there is no harm in that is there?
A person...? Optics lacking in majestic muse stared down the lone figure trudging through the desert as if they were observing a lesser being, my brow rising slowly and the edge of my lips curving to enhance the disdain this newcomer forced upon me. I rather enjoyed my hellish, desolate deserts without the intrusion of unknown men, thank-you-very-much! But maybe he had water...Or more...!!! Being young, I was able to afford the entertainment of both sides of the 'coin', a dance with good and evil played out with both partners remaining at equal distance.
Clad in crimson protectorates and in a rather comfortable sitting position, there was a slight chance he'd see me to his perfect East, especially during his keen observation of whatever paper-like item he held in his hands. Just in case he didn't however, I began a slow approach, sand sliding off my figure as I aimed to close our 45 meter gap. My stride was slow, a normal walk employed by regular shinobi. I was not armed, simply armored. Only my head remained free, raven locks unkempt at my sides dancing forbidden steps with the slowly gusting wind.
Though my eyes were momentarily lazy, they nonetheless kept the man as their loosely centered point of focus. Growing closer in distance only enhanced this fact. I wonder if he's got water...?

Whats that feeling?
Something had been wrong, or was it just imagination?
As Seigen eyes raced across the world map with much ease and precision a sharp tingle within his senses sparked with each step that struck the sands below from the lone shinobi. A figure, a dark, umbrageous figure exposed itself as it stepped forward to a closer distance, its chakra raging, but why? (40 meters). Baneful black eyes zoomed to the corners of his eyes to gaze upon whatever laid within sands perfect east. Finally he knew, he knew he wasn't alone, not anymore. Still standing at a side view his head turned to towards the aimlessly sauntering being; his world map undulated wildly as winds began to pick up, perhaps this had been the gods method of speaking, foretelling of bloodshed and violence on an unimaginable scale.
With a sleight of hand Seigen instantly folded his world map and returned it to the right pocket of his robe before turning his body frontally to face the approaching figure. With each passing second, each passing step, the man fell victim to Seigen's prowess of analytical observation. In a split seconds time he canvassed a myriad number of features that his mind deemed absolutely necessary to keep a watchful eye on. The carmine armor, revealed head, skin tone, the way he walked, it all fell under the ambit of this sand ninja's watchful eye. (35 meters)
"Cease your movement...now."
With a cold, apathetic tone and glare Seigen spoke, had he been this much of a unemotional freak to where even an unknown presence could not conjure up any form of expression?! Pathetic to some, but to each his own right? Seigen was never a man to repeat himself, so should the lone armored shinobi continue on with his stroll a prepared kunai would be thrown, aimed for his very armored torso. And then came the sand not even a second after the kunai, rising up from the ground hoping to ensnare his lower body as if the sand itself was given the gift of life.
[->]Suna Nezumitori (Sand Entrapment) Rank: D Type: Offensive / Ninjutsu / Kekkei Touta Range: See special! Special: Range of entrapment depends on the user's 'Sand Dominion' rank. Can only be escaped by a chakra surge greater than the one ensnaring the victim. Description: As its name implies, the sand entrapment technique allows the user to use the sand along the ground or within soil to shoot up and attempt to ensnare the victim’s lower body as tightly as possible. Quick moving, the main advantage of this jutsu is that it does not require handseals – only that the user can identify the target so that their sand can react. Domain: Saton. Must know Sand Dominion 'D'.
Oh my god...he did!!! Perplexed, confused, dazed, and suddenly humored, all states I shifted through at once as I witnessed the man before me "unfold" in a series of...questionable acts. As suspected he was a shinobi of sorts, evident by the throwing of his kunai and the discarding of the map in order to favor movement with his hands. Over 30 meters away, the kunai's travel would surely loose its luster, but I had not waited for the item's arrival at my side to judge its speed - the moment he had attempted a throwing motion and let the knife fly, I was already shimmying away from target, to the front-right, at least ten meters away.
Twenty-five meters...I came to life with my hands together, a keen set of uninterested eyes locked hard on the man's figure, his hands, and everything else that could provide a potential tell to his next move. To my side came a puff of smoke, a summoned ally that looked all to well like myself nodding at me upon its inception into this desert-filled reality. Already it knew what to do, though it too was hesitating with the man's sudden inability to properly perform jutsu before them. Though it was obvious he could manipulate sand, it was not so obvious he knew how to use it. This was evidential by the slopping sand some ten meters away. Wtf!?!?
Faust #1 and #2 sighed; we were not

Kage Bunshin no Jutsu (Shadow Clone Technique)
[/u] Rank: B Type: Supplementary / Ninjutsu / Kinjutsu Range: Self Special: When first learned, a single Shadow Clone can be produced. Each time re-learned, one additional clone can be made, for a maximum of 5. Please remember that regardless of the amount of clones made, the chakra is still divided evenly amongst all bodies! Description: Kage Bunshin is an advanced, forbidden Ninjutsu technique, which grants the user the ability to create a tangible clone. The normal Bunshin technique creates a copy of the ninja that lacks any substance. However, Kage Bunshin distributes the ninja's chakra evenly among the clones and creates a real copy with form and substance, to the point the clone can utilize any jutsu the original ninja knows, and spawns with any equipment the user has one them at the time of the summoning. When the clone finally disperses, any new knowledge it has gained is passed back to the original ninja and any additional clones. Domain: Jounin, unless Kage permission or scrolls is/are somehow acquired.[/quote]

"A miscalculation, I must punish myself later on for this. that was an act a man of perfection would not have made."
Mental images of how the boy would try and penalize himself attempted to flicker within the recesses of his mind, however, the given scenario would not allow such recklessness. His mind needed to be focused on one thing, perfection, and laying waste to the man before him would only bring him ever so closer. Like all mistakes and miscalculations it will be learned from, it will be improved upon, besides, even the most prosperous of ninja had their bad days......didn't they?!
He came closer, closer, and CLOSER with each passing second, Seigen would not stand for it, he couldn't allow the man to come any closer. Instantly as his clone physically manifested it too fell victim to his apathetic gaze, however, nothing was different, not a damn thing. He face showed no real sense of urgency or surprise for that matter, even as the numbers in the given fight now played against his favor. As they came forward he leapt backwardly about 3 meters, and as he landed his right hand uplifted with precipitous speeds he uprooted a circular clod of sand (10 meters for Height length, and width), rising it above both he and his opponent by 10 meters. A crater of sand shared the same measurements of the conglomerated sand particles, however, this time around it was 10 meters deep. Hopefully either the material shinobi or his clone would fall within the sands rotund mouth; it was unlikely but it was worth a try.
He needed a plan B, a follow up, and within the confines of a split second his mind concocted said plan. With immense speeds a large mass of sand vomited from his gourd as it rose 2 meters into air only to have it crash down in a volley of pikes in attempt to stun the opposing shinobi and rid of his clone.
[->]Suna Shigure (Sand Shower) Rank: D Type: Supplementary / Ninjutsu / Kekkei Touta Range: See special! Special: Range of sand shower on the user's 'Sand Dominion' rank. Vision in general is obscured, and even doujutsu will have a harder time spotting things inside the sand shower due to the user’s chakra coating the flowing body. Description: Meant more as a distraction technique than an offensive one, the Suna Shigure grants control of nearby sand, allowing the user to levitate numerous small clumps of sand above his opponent. At this point, the sand can remain suspended in the air as long as the user wants, or it can immediately become useful. Showering from above, the curtains of sand make it harder for opponents to see, as well as provide the user with plentiful sand already surrounding the opponent for further use. Domain: Saton. Must know Sand Dominion 'D'.
[->]Suna Raishin (Sand Lightning Needles) Rank: D Type: Defensive / Ninjutsu / Kekkei Touta Range: 0 - 5 meters Special: Area of lightning blocked depends on the user’s level of 'Sand Dominion'; neutralizes raiton attacks of one rank lower. Neutralized attacks are then unleashed onto the victim which made them. Description: One of the few non-lethal yet still effective Saton jutsu, the user will hurl sand into the air which will come down around their target in the form of hard pikes. Electricity will be generated from the pikes to arc towards and attack the opponent. Essentially, if their opponent utilizes lightning, it appears this technique will neutralize its usage in the target by creating an opposing electrical charge that drains or otherwise neutralizes electricity. Domain: Saton. Must know Sand Dominion.
Twenty-five meters...I came to life with my hands together, a keen set of uninterested eyes locked hard on the man's figure, his hands, and everything else that could provide a potential tell to his next move...This was evidential by the slopping sand some ten meters away.
OOC - Again, I thought I made it pretty clear I was not within your Sand Dominion range but instead 25 meters, but it seems you still don't get it...well, I'm not feeling so forgiving anymore! GG =P
As they came forward he leapt backwardly about 3 meters, and as he landed his right hand uplifted with precipitous speeds he uprooted a circular clod of sand (10 meters for Height length, and width), rising it above both he and his opponent by 10 meters.
I would wait no longer. As he continued his tomfoolery in the sand by casting jutsu that failed to even reach me, the clone and I had easily flown through the seals required for our desired ender - Ikadzuchi no Utage. It'd come forth from underneath his very feet as he landed, while he chose to jump around and prepare more useless jutsu of his own. Swift moving hands would already be slamming down into the sand after moving forward a few steps, 20 meters away, ready to bring on murder. There would be no warning. There would be no more chances. Even while the Suna ninja was momentarily blinded of me by his own sand he'd be hit. The shocks would be endless, and they'd end only when he did.
Ikadezuchi no Utage (Lightning Bolt Feast) x2 Rank: B Type: Offensive / Raiton Ninjutsu Range: 0 - 30 meters Special: Up to one foe can be targeted at a time, plus one more each time retrained. Must retain eye contact with targets until impact. Description: Although Utage shares a name similarity with Kiba, it’s a far unique and different in many ways. The most notable is that the lightning for this technique travels underground. Once the user makes the appropriate seals, they mold a concentrated amount of chakra at their weapon tip or their fists, and quickly strike the ground with it. Whomever they targeted will soon be victim of a quick traveling electrical surge from below, invisible only until it arrives at its target. It emerges from below them, surprisingly fast so that it shocks the victim whole. Domain: Raiton
Honestly, this is a no brainer. The fact that you've used jutsu at the incorrect range, twice, is kind of what messes you up here. As you said, you'd be blinded momentarily and that's all it'd take for Fina's character to cover the distance and unleash his technique.
The moment you landed you would be dead, so-- this fight is pretty much over.
