"The twelve ninja, now resurrected and free from the control of the evil Oni spirits that transformed and corrupted them into becoming the Oni Queen, had lived in relative harmony with each other, using their new powers for good. However, they did not realize that their destruction and resurrection did not completely obliterate their Oni natures. Instead, it had caused their bodies to permanently merge with the essences of each of their respective Oni, which were now benign extensions of themselves. Yes, the spirits were no more, but the twelve ninja were no longer mortal humans, either. They were now the “New Oni” and it is in the nature of all Oni to, above all else, desire and consume power.
With every conflict, they would grow more and more careless in their accumulation of power. Again, their bodies began to expand, absorbing mass amounts of chakra, becoming "Overgrown Oni." They knew that another merge would be inevitable if they remained in close geographic proximity to one another. So they all decided to disband and travel to the four corners of the land, where they would attempt to live in isolation and control their forms.
Hinata chose to remain near the Mist Village, where she enshrouded herself in fog, isolating herself from the townsfolk. But Ino wished to return to the swamplands, where she wouldn’t harm others with her toxic skin and live in comfort and happiness in the marshy pools and mud.
As the years passed, most of the Oni grew content living in isolation. Soon, they outlived all who had known them. Centuries passed, empires rose and fell, and soon the Oni themselves vanished into myth and legend. Eventually, a new generation of primitives became drawn to their powerful chakras. Despite their protests, the people began to venerate them as mighty beings and protectors. Some of them even began to worship them as great demigods.
Though their ninja principles wanted to reject such worship, their Oni natures swelled with pride and hunger. Eventually, they settled on an internal compromise. After all, it is only natural for an Oni to want to dominate, rule, and become empowered! However, it would be different this time. This time, they would heed their ninja vows. Instead of selfishly draining resources and chakra to grow infinitely in power, their relationship with the people would become symbiotic. They would protect them and bring them good fortune, using their powers to benefit their adopted cultures. In return, the people must freely offer them their chakra, though sparingly and divided out among many people as opposed to draining everyone's chakra completely. This would give the people time to recover and, in turn, prevent the Oni from becoming too gluttonous.And so, the New Oni (as they called themselves) lived in relative peace for years, being loved and feared throughout the lands they dwelled in. But perhaps, the day may come where they would have to unite their powers once again, should a greater evil manifest itself and threaten the world. And perhaps only the combined might of the New Oni can stop it!"-- Ne0natomy
I suppose i could make it a free-for-all, if the support is there. $20 and you get a fat oni of your choice! Come one, come all!
-thinks about the logistics of it-
I would like to do them somewhat sporadically throughout the year, have then done by the end of it.
The question is: Should they all get FAT, even the buff ones like Tenten and Tayuya? I don't want to just repeat what i did in the first sequences, but make them overpowered but somehow... different.
Well I for one say no for all fat. I like Tenten buff and she was one that I hope to pay for as such. Though I guess you can do beefy(fat belly with buff arm/legs) as well as make some diffident in other ways. Like Anko can loss her leg and become like a naga of sort instead of getting fat or buff.
Mind you this is just my thought. In the end this is really your and Ne0natomy thing. I just wish to help with one or two.
Ne0natomy has some awesome ideas I must say
And you even included the wall-of-text I sent you so very long ago! Thanks. I had more or less abandoned that one, but I appreciate the nod to it nonetheless! ^_^
Thanks for the early birthday gift, my dude! I think next Overgrown Oni will be Karin. Shaking that badonkadonk to make the rockin' world go round!
In your twenties, you can do anything and still feel good most of the time. In your thirties, in order to feel good, you have to WORK at it. You have to avoid sugar, alcohol, and drugs. Eat fiber, drink enough water, get moderate exercise, and get 7 hours of sleep. If you don't, you're gonna feel like a lukewarm dog turd all the time.
That's my experience, anyway.
