With the Captains suffering casualties and heavy injuries on their side, all hope seemed to be lost... until Shinji Hirako appeared, along with the rest of the former Shinigami. Though the aid of the Vizards certainly helped to draw the battle in their favor, it seemed Aizen's power alone proved too much for them.

Kobato walked into the Dojo with a red and black shirt that said,"Ecko Unltd." He hadn't been here in a while and thought maybe he should return. He needed to build up his skills and no more slacking. No more BS coming from him, he would do whatever he said he would do. So he stood in the middle of the dojo and didn't see anyone at the moment, so he decided to sit down and meditate.
He sat cross-legged with his hands clapped together and his eyes closed. He breathed in and out steadily and tried to sense his surroundings. Since it was so quiet, it was so easy to meditate there. He could sense the scurrying of tiny bugs and everything but then he got bored.
So Syn started to let his reiatsu leak out, letting it fluctuate from low to high at times. He knew someone would notice the ever changing spiritual pressure. He hoped whoever found him was strong. He needed a good kick in the head, he needed a challenge.

And a kick in the head you shall receive.
First of all, let me quote a PM I've sent to you.
Well, it looks like more logical rants are necessary to those who just simply can't understand why they're being punished.
Quite frankly, this board is for everyone. We, as staff, are not here to simply be the boss of everyone and push people around or insult people. We are all here as writers and fans of the Bleach series to simply enjoy our time by immersing ourselves into a creative version of fanfiction, written by a collection of people. That is, what I believe, the true definition of Role Play is. What role playing is NOT, is simply creating a character, and using them to play out your own fantasy of walking over everyone and everything in your path. Players who create characters simply for that reason, I'm sorry to say this, but I completely and utterly loathe and despise them. These types of players give Role Playing a bad name, and quite frankly, have no place on my board.
They take away the fun of role playing by only thinking selfishly of themselves and their own character, without any thought of any other character's story or the player themselves. They simply wish to create their own Godmod Ichigo-version character that is best friends with Aizen or Yamamotto and is their number one offensive strategy against the opposing element. These types of Mary Sue characters, if you've read the rules at all, are NOT welcome on this board. They take away from the fun aspect of this site and I will NOT have my players feel completely useless in comparison to these Mary Sues.
As stated above, age should NEVER be used as a crutch. Wicked is prime example of that fact. She expressed maturity, and a writing talent that, quite frankly, surpasses some of my fellow college students. As such, age is no excuse for constantly breaking the rules, and simply wishing your character to stand out.
You state that you're attempting to make changes, and now are venting and complaining that we're insulting you? No; I have witnessed absolutely NO positive change. The ONLY changes I've seen from either of you is giving up one problem for another problem; i.e., going from using abilities you DON'T have to using a multitude of Kido spells in a single post when your character isn't even that GOOD at Kido. If you had read the Kido Guide, you would have understood the level in which your character could produce.
That, in and of itself, is another reason why you both are constantly being pointed out; your lack of understanding the rules. In EVERY NEW APPLICATION TEMPLATE, there is a spot that states 'Have you read and understood the ______ Guide?' in reference to Race. It also asks if you've read and understood the main rules, and so forth. It is a RULE of this site to READ all portions of the Guide. Yes, they are long, but they're there for a reason.
You're stating no one's there to help you? Well, first off, the Guides could have pointed out 90% of the mistakes you've made. I'm the one who wrote them. You're neglect of reading them is you neglecting me attempting to help you. So yea, don't complain that no one's helping you when you're not even willing to help yourself. Secondly, if you don't understand something within the Guide, you're supposed to ask me, personally, since I wrote them. I have received no question by either of you in accordance to any of the Guides. Hell, the Fighting Guide is an OPEN THREAD. If you have a question about fighting, you can POST THERE! Your question will be answered. As such, there's no reason to complain about THAT aspect.
You BOTH are suspended from the Dojo and Fighting Threads in General until you LEARN HOW TO FIGHT. If you don't like it, then you can leave the site. If you need a crash course in proper RPing, then obviously, the best person to ask would be the person who created so many Guides that basically explain HOW TO ROLE PLAY. I'd be more than willing to give you help, but NEITHER of you have ever stopped to actually ASK me.
Either shape up and learn how to Role Play properly and ask when you need help, or get the hell off my site.
As such, you were banned from posts within the Dojo. I understand that you may be impatient over the fact that it is my turn to post, and the last post was made around mid August. Well, let me inform you first that I've been in the process of moving from Las Vegas back to Boston, and as such, have been looking for a full time job, an apartment, and managing a business from long distance while also packing, unpacking, and packing some more. The result of this has been my lack of posting, which I have announced in the Leave of Absence thread. I will be around sometimes, but that's only quick pop-ins. I would, however, like to inform of the two month wait I had for my round of posting just before this current round. If I had the patience to wait, I believe everyone should.
Syn, I will tell you the same thing I told Haru, and I will quote:
The ban will only be lifted when you make posts other than within the training thread. You have made no attempt to make any posts aside from the fighting-training thread in the Dojo. The whole reason behind the ban was to allow you both to experience Role Playing WITHOUT THE NEED TO FIGHT. Obviously, if the only posts you have made since your ban from fighting has been within the Training thread, then No. Your ban may certainly not be lifted, because you have not proven to me that you can make posts aside from your fighting ones.
I have noticed that you made only ONE post recently that is not connected to the training thread. While I have not read it, I can assume that it does not involve fighting. However, in seeing that you're asking me now to lift the ban, I can only assume that you're going to wish to fight in it. So, no. The ban cannot be lifted.
Make threads and posts that do NOT revolve around fighting. MORE THAN JUST ONE. And maybe I'll reconsider. Until then, you can wait until my vacation is over for me to continue back into posting in that training thread.
You have not made any posts outside of the Dojo since June, and that was BEFORE the ban. The whole purpose of this ban is to make you all realize there's more to this board than fight-posts. This board is about story, not just the dojo. As such, LEARN to make posts that REVOLVE AROUND A STORY; character development and so forth.
However, since I currently don't have the time to make an IC reply to this post, I will leave things in the hand of my most trusted not-so-legally adopted daughter, Wicked.
Because I feel so wonderfully and joyously giddy today, Syn, you get the pleasure of not being autohitted through a wall. Instead, I give you: What an Entrance Post Should Look Like For Dummies. Kinda.
Entering the dojo - ah, screw it. Crashing through the ceiling came a black-clad woman, a large, puffy-ending hat miraculously remaining on top of her head as she crashed into the floor. That said, the woman was soon followed by another white-clad woman, who entered the room with her arms folded over her chest. And SHE was followed by another white-clad woman, albeit, this one was much shorter.
"Oi, what's with the faux monk over there?" Adela quipped, rubbing her head as she stood to her feet, pointing at the kid sitting cross-legged in the middle of the floor.
"This is a dojo, Adela."
"Yeah, but wasn't Monje Falso over there banned? Like, didn't I see a picture of him on the, "Kick out if seen," list? Right there?" Adela snorted, pointing to a list of photos on the wall, several shinigami, vizard, and even an arrancar or two being listed.
That said, Neva, the white-clad arrancar bearing a striking resemblance to Adela, turned her head to see the list, and raised an eyebrow. "Strange."
"Idiotic," Celia corrected, stepping towards the vizard. She did not draw her blade; she didn't need it, nor did she actively use it. "If he were wise, he would have stayed away. You. That was your first mistake."
That said, she flicked her eyes to Adela and Neva, the former beaming at the prospect of dealing out a senseless beating. "Woohoo!"
That said, with speed unaided by sonido, she sprang forward, snapping her leg out in a roundhouse kick for the vizard's head.
Neva simply remained where she was, standing behind her Espada. "Celia-sama, what is the point of this?"
"I feel as though an unseen force has compelled me to remove those who have lost the right to role-play in fight threads - whatever those words mean."
That said, Neva gave a nod, stepping forward and opening her hand, pointing her fingers to the ground. A rosy energy gathered in the palm of her hand, and as she rotated it, the energy grew saturated, becoming a bright magenta. Silently, wordlessly, Neva launched the cero at the vizard's midsection. If Adela missed, Neva would certainly hit.
Character List "Let's eat, Grandma!" "Let's eat Grandma!" Commas save lives.

Kobato was hit and is unconscious.
Okay now I haven't been on much to read the Absence and Return thread, so sorry that was my bad. Also I didn't know that it would be lifted after we made a thread outside of the dojo. Also I actually did make one outside of the dojo in the guitar strings thread I think either in Karakura Town or Seireitei. So this in turn is my fault and I am sorry for my mistake. On another note however, nice entrance.
