NINPOCHO CHRONICLES v6.4.0 - "Branching Paths Part 2"

F95tGH.png


Hello Ninpocho, while this may not be as big a patch as last year's v6.3, we do have a few more Branching Bloodlines to release, as well as some Core Ability reworks and some Kinjutsu updates, and some general updates. There has also been a bit of a meta update with some changes to the Barrier System you can find below. Now, as per the last update, the following steps will apply:

  • All "official" Bmod battle calls will be on hold for 1 week following the patch release (beginning again on 17/05/2020).
    • Modded situations, such as missing attempts, will be on hold during this time.
    • Friendly spars are welcome, as some player will likely be eager to test new things, and Bmods may still recieve pay for modding these unofficial spars. However, there will be no taking advantage of the change and hostile attacking anyone while they may be adjusting to the changes.
  • Everyone is given a free OCR, or capability of changing anything within their existing character, during this time. This must be started (it doesn't need to be completed) during this one week downtime.
  • Any WC requirements will be ignored during this downtime; be they abilities, Kinjutsu, BL/CA. This patch affects a large variety of things, some may have their current table no longer exist entirely. This would help ease the transition for them, as affected players will be blindsided by the changes.
General Rules
  • Barriers have had a complete rework. They now block all non-genjutsu attacks, with a unbypassable DR against certain types of damages, (eg Physical, Elemental or Illusionary) **All the barrier jutsu will be updated over the next day, there is quite a few to get through, we thank you for your patience**
  • Smart Actions have been updated to include what happens when a sense is already filled by a Genjutsu.
  • Alignments has had some reworking, as well as an update to how it affects a player.
  • Illusionary Damage hasn't been only Genjutsu for a while, so it has been moved into the Damage types part of the UBR, and been updated for both the Barrier and Alignment updates.
  • CP(Chakra Points) Damage has also been updated to reflect the alignment changes.
  • The Genjutsu and Ninjutsu Secondary Effect chances cap are both being removed from the UBR. The standard cap of 50% will still apply.(Ninjutsu: Secondary Effects may never have their success chance be raised higher than 150% of their original chance or a total success chance of 50% and Genjutsu: Regardless of the amount of buffs the user has, effects and debuffs on genjutsu can not exceed +50%.)

Just to clarify - The ignoring of WC only applies to swapping things you already have, not gaining new things.

We have realized that one week was perhaps not enought time for everyone to review the changes and make a decision on the new builds, so we have extended the deadline by two more weeks, ending 31/05/2020.

Edit: This will also include the hold on modded threads.
