The Spooky Update is here!
New items: BRANCH STYLES! These count as your free branch ability if you take them, are unique to each branch, and cannot be kept if you leave the branch as per normal branch ability rules.

We've also done broad changes to all of the branch abilities! And touched up some minor things with Darting Blow's effect, puppet clone's limits, and put a cap on arena jutsu.

And, for those who missed them, we've returned the old cursed seals to NC with the new cursed seal system!

Check it out here!

We bring a gobbling good time with November's patch!
Unfortunately, not all changes enacted are going to be loved.
So the restrictions first: Branch Abilities have been clarified so you can only have them from your current branch. If you're not in the branch you own abilities for, that need fixed pronto.
Contract Summons have also had it clarified they cannot take branch abilities, or cursed seals.

In the middling of the road news, you can no longer take someone past half their AP in losses from poisons/debuffs/genjutsu/what have you. This only applies to actually lowering AP, like suppression.
Reflexives and Reactionaries have been clarified, spruced up, and given some restrictions and leeway in their workings. And, for good news, they no longer alter the timing of moves you're performing.
Limit Break has been clarified so it no longer reads like you're programming a VCR from a text translated from heiroglyphics to Taiwanese to English.


Now for the "definitely good" news:
Kensei's got a change so the genjutsu warding effect no longer requires a move that doesn't exist.
Abomination has been updated to work with the new rank 2 Cursed Seals.
Grandeur Phantom had the way shadows with gen work specified so that those using GP can now rest easy knowing how it actually works.

We're still working hard to bring the updated Bloodlines in-line and a few nifty changes in order aspects of the system as well! For now, check this topic out!
