Also called the Demon Arts, Kidou is an alternative technique used to channel Reiatsu in the form of binding and destructive spells. While technically all manner of spirits and humans with spiritual power may learn these arts, only the Shinigami have a compiled list of spells, and know the methods to teaching them. Among the two categories of Kidou there are also Forbidden Arts, each dangerous to use in their own unique ways.

Those spells labled with yellow text are spells which were created by Staff and community members in the past, purely for use in our RP. Spells labeled in red are Forbidden Kidou, which are only able to be used by the Captain or Vice-Captain of the Kidou Corps, unless taught the spell by one of these two. Even if your character holds these ranks, use of these Kidou merits extreme punishment, which will be decided based upon the circumstances.


Kidou Strength & Resistance Edit

Kidou Strength -whether Bakudou or Hadou- is calculated by adding the number of the Kidou, with 50% of the caster's Reiatsu (Ex: If the caster has Reiatsu 100, the strength of Hadou 31: Shakkahou is 81. Kidou Strength is also the movement speed of the spell itself (not to be confused with Casting Speed, which is based on the caster's Speed stat).

Kidou Resistance us equal to half the defending character's Reiatsu plus half the Kidou Strength of the casting character (Ex: Defender has 200 Reiatsu, and Caster has 250 Reiatsu attempts to use Bakduou 47: Cadavar Threads. Caster Kidou Strength is 172, meaning the Defender's Resistance is 100 + 86 = 186.) A higher Resistance than Strength enables you to break free from the spell's effects. *Note: Kidou Resistance applies only to Binding Spells*

When two Hadou collide, the difference between the Kidou Strength is reduced from the Speed of the winning spell (Ex: Two Shakkahou collide, one from a 100 Rei caster, the other from a 150 Rei caster. Caster one has Kidou Strength 81, and Caster two has Kidou Strength 106. After the collision Caster two's Shakkahou will have a speed of 25 instead of 106, thought it's power will remain the same).
