My char has quite bit fuinjutsu techniques, but no advanced seals yet (but that is during next level up I take the advanced seals feat). My char can also produce shinobi drugs and can take 10 to several skills thanks coolhead trait . That's besides his medical jutsu stuff and he is quite heavily leaning to genjutsu. So perhaps you go all out taijutsu unarmed user from Hyuuga clan perhaps Vex :).
To be fair, Fuinjutsu is not the kind of thing one generally specializes in alone, and their effects often serve to enhance other specializations. In Zaraki's case, you're using it to enhance his medical jutsu, and in my theoretical case, she would be using it to enhance her puppets and crafted items, and in both cases, there would be fuinjutsu that one knows that the other likely doesn't (some seals are specifically made with medical jutsu or puppetry in mind, for instance). Crafting Weapon and Armor seals, as well as other Sealed Items, aren't as simple as knowing the techniques either, it takes quite a few feats, so even if both of them were fairly versed in fuinjutsu, I don't think there would be as much overlap as one might expect, unless you plan on spending three feats to pick those up as well.
That said, I certainly don't mind just going for the Hyuuga
character. I'm just saying either one still sounds viable.
Also, thanks for the searchable technique reference! That'll definitely come in handy!
@Vex: Never used puppets before... and honestly while I'm not unfamiliar with d20 my experience with Nd20 is comparably minimal by comparison. The Hyuuga would be simpler I think than the other :3
Also remember I said this wasn't first-come first-serve so yeah, feel free to come up with an idea if you'd like ^_^
Glad to hear it!
Puppets aren't too complicated, only a little more than Summoning generally is, but there's no doubt it's the more complex option. Add to it the rules for making sealed items, as well as the more mundane rules for crafting non-sealed items, weapons, armor and puppet bodies, and you can easily say that first concept I have definitely delves into more obscure rules of the book. So, if you'd rather not deal with that, I can understand. It seems Zaer prefers the Hyuuga option as well, which also delves into rather obscure rules, but much less so (not many techniques deal with tenketsu or chakra coil damage outside the Jyuuken
fighting style). So, I'm thinking that's what's best to run with for everyone.
Thanks for the swift reply! I'll hopefully have a concept for you in the next day or two.
