Updated: 8/18/2017

Heya! I'm your friendly neighborhood Larsinny, a demon here to keep you updated on the current debacles going on within the site! Okay, maybe not debacles... Anyway! The Endymion Plot, our Third Main Plot, is underway! We also have our sideplot taking place called Junction! If you're a new member looking to join the new plot, you will want to choose Endymion. However, if you're interested in our sideplot, you may also join that one aswell. The choice is ultimately up to you! The Dungeon Master of the Junction plot is CWIS and the DM of the current Endymion plot is Godai and Grantus.

All templates on the site have been updated, and this also includes the rules aswell. When referring to the rules, please disregard any that say "Old" or "Obsolete" as we are no longer using those rules for the Endymion Plot. Oh, don't be mistaken! I love breaking the rules! But in this case, follow them or erasure!

Be sure to constantly check the update thread for any changes to the boards. You can find it ->Here<-

Zaku watched Viden and she nodded a bit, he was moving well, it seemed he had been listening and observing as she had asked, and at least was able to take it in and forget anything he had seen in movies and video games, this was a great sign as it meant he would try anything stupid that could get himself hurt. Nodding her approval of his motions she let him continue as she got out a sign up sheet and placed it on the side for now after all if he wanted more then just the free lesson she should at least have the paper work ready.

As she was doing that her cowlick continued to watch the boy do his movements seemingly nodding as he continued the good work, until finally Zaku returned to his side and watched for a few more minutes. Soon after she waved to get his attention "Okay it seems you have a good grasp on the movement part, now Zaku will teach you the different grips, they each have their own uses and there are some more advanced grips you could learn, but for now Zaku will teach you the four basic ones, High guard, Low guard, Mid guard, and neutral stance, many discount the neutral stance, but it is a good stance to use to move from one guard to the other, and to allow better movement as it keeps the weapon out of the way but in a controllable state so that you can move to any other stance quickly. Zaku"

With that explained she started the training on the stances beginning with the Neutral stance, the training in this would take several minutes for each stance as she also showed him basic strikes he could do in each one, and what to look out for as the down sides of each stance.

After some time, Zaku waved to Viden. Viden stopped, to then listen to what she had to say.
She explained how there were different grips, with their own uses. There werefour basic ones: High, Mid, Low and neutral stance, which seemed really out of a videogame for Viden. Zaku started doing what Viden thought was the neutral stance, since Zaku talked about it for a while.

"Ok then..."

Viden said, to then start imitating Zaku's stance as best as possible, yet again.

"These stances help to balance your mind and body as well as focus it, different strikes are launched from different stances, and can flow into new stances. Eventually you will be able to seamlessly move from one to the other to the next with fluid strikes. but first Proper training is required. Zaku" she said as she moved slowly from one stance to the next to show him a simple shifting pattern as she spoke, but she then returned to the neutral stance as she started to preform some warm up sword moves, slow swings and the like as she let the training wooden blade drag along the practice dummy.

"We will start with basic warm ups, you need to get used to the weight and how you need to properly balance, move slowly at first to feel the shifting, and to learn how to properly counteract it Zaku" she said as he looked at Viden waiting for him to get into position to follow her movements with his own training dummy

Viden kept copying Zaku's stance, until she explained what were the various benefits from learning different stances. Viden then noticed how Zaku changed to various stances, to then demonstrate her abilities and make Viden learn how to do swings with various stances.
Zaku then continued explaining how Viden needed to get used to the weight of the weapon, and properly balance. Viden then got into "position" with a nod and started imitating Zaku, yet again.

Zaku watched as Viden started to copy her mimicking her motions and she nodded as she started to speed up a bit hoping he would do the same "While we do this please realize that this training weapon is twice as heavy s the real thing, this is to help train your endurance to allow you to wield the real thing for longer or anything of reasonably similar length and weight as the real thing. Zaku" she said as she was still slowly increasing her speed continuing to flow from slow strike to the next staying in the neutral stance the whole time and only using neutral strikes to keep it easy for now.

After some time going through the motions she slowly came to a stop and looked to Viden and asked a question that she needed to know if he was going to become a full time student at her Dojo "So what reason do you have to come to learn this swordsmanship? Zaku?" her cowlick still going through the motions against the dummy as if it itself was the sword.

While Zaku kept explaining how these trainings with the sword double the weight of the actual weapons would help Viden's endurance a lot, Viden noticed how Zaku, like before, kept slowly but surely going faster with the speed of switching stances.

After a while, Viden stopped, seeming slightly tired, even though, in reality, he was feeling pretty worn out. When Zaku asked why he came to the dojo and started training.

"Oh, you know, to hurt people."

Viden said, with such a serious tone and expression on his face that it was obvious that he was being sarcastic.

"In all seriousness though...A while back, I was interested in the Medieval Era, Knights, stuff like that. I was particularly interested in swordsmanship, and when I heard that there was a Dojo while I was exploring the city, I checked it out, and now we're here."

Viden said, to then continue in an honest tone.

"So it's basically just an interest that I still have. That's it really."

As Zaku watched she looked at the boy as he answered her question and as he gave his sarcastic answer her gaze hardened as she looked at him with the air of a displeased teacher, disrespect in the Dojo wasn't something she was going to allow, but as he was not a student she knew she couldn't discipline him, but she would have to let him know before hand that she would not allow disrespectful remarks like that, discipline was one of the many things needed to properly learn. She knew he was being sarcastic, but the fact the boy did so in such a callus and disrespectful manner was what the problem was.

"You might think your little joke is warranted, but I ask this question to all my students, as a student of the dojo you will have responsibilities, the image of the dojo and of it's owner are reflected in the manner of it's students, as the sensei and owner, what you use this training for is something I will keep an interest in...and if you stray down the wrong path, it will fall to me to correct you..Don't make light of this, and respect your place at the dojo if you join, and keep in mind your responsibility. Zaku" she said to him as she looked at him clearly displeased at his joke.

She then let him continue and she nodded a bit "So a not just some passing interest? that's good to hear, I hope that interest burns strong as learning martial arts or swordsmanship can take a very long time. I hope you realize this. Zaku" she said to him as she looked at Viden

As Viden listened to Zaku, the which had put a hardened gaze on Viden for his joke, he noticed how she was very, maybe even deadly, serious about these things.

"Ok, I understand. I'm sorry for making that joke."

Viden said, after Zaku finished her speech, with a little bow. After he apologized, he kept listening to her, hearing how she hoped that his interest kept him in training in swordsmanship, or martial arts.

"Yes, I do realize that it's going to take a lot of time..."

Viden said, not knowing what to say next. Viden then proceeded to ask:

"So, uhm...Is there anything else I can learn today?"

Zaku's gaze lightened a bit "It's okay, butt you have to realize, these are skills that some might use to hurt others, and it's up to Zaku as the Sensei to make sure that her students never stray down that path, or Zaku has failed as a sensei. Zaku" she said looking at him and nodding a bit.

The boy seemed to want to learn, which was good, and it seemed that he understood the seriousness and the responsibility he would have if he did join, that alone was good to know, but for now he wanted to know what else he could learn about this weapon and she nodded a bit "For today there isn't really much else Zaku could teach you, these motions can be practiced at home, the key is to remember the speed and the weight, as for sighing up for the Dojo, the price is fairly reasonable, If you wish zaku can send you home with an information package and you can make your decision to join the Dojo once you have had a chance to fully think of it okay? Zaku?" she said as she reached for the pile of papers she had sitting on a small table near the wall, and held out the information package for Viden.

Zaku explained how she had nothing else to teach Viden for the day, which made Viden a little disappointed, since he was getting into practicing. Zaku offered a sign-up for the Dojo, saying that the price was fairly reasonable. He would have also gotten an information package about the Dojo. Viden then saw Zaku reaching out for a pile of papers, to then hand it out do Viden.

"Ok, I'll think about it. Thanks for showing me the basics, I'll definitely consider joining."

He said. He then looked at his cellphone, to then notice the time.

"Oh...Damnit, I have to open up...Well, sorry, I have to hurry. Bye!"

He said with a hurried tone, taking the pile of papers, to then wave his hand at Zaku, to bid farewell to her. He then started to run at the entrance of the Dojo, to then leave.

[Viden EXIT]

Zaku watched the boy leave and bowed, she did hope he would join the Dojo, she had so few students at the moment, though it seemed interest was growing since people were actually seeing others walking in lately, so maybe she could start getting more people wanting to join just from the fact that she was getting more students?

Ether way she returned to cleaning the place, after all it had to be presentable in case she had another person walk in asking for the free training session, so she moved the training dummies off to the side and the large rolling crate of training weapons out of sight for now as she started to clean the floor to make sure it was all well cared for.
