Kishin eggs are an interesting group of creatures as they don’t follow the conventions of others. Shibusen students have a set of rules they follow and the goal of making a death scythe to aspire to. Witches have their own society and the compulsion to spread chaos. Kishin eggs can come from anywhere with no similarities aside from the desire to feed on pure souls. Because of this it can be difficult for kishin eggs to interact with others, even more so if they are less human in nature or appearance. This system will hopefully remedy this and give kishin eggs a purpose.
The primary drive for students is to collect souls through missions to ascend the ranks, kishin eggs run off of a similar concept. What divides them is that students are limited to souls on Shinigami’s list and witches while kishin eggs can consume the souls of anyone and don’t have a defined end goal. To keep this from getting out of hand there will be some limits and some risk for the corrupt souls.
Missions for kishin eggs will be self-run and can take place anywhere that makes sense for the individual kishin. If they only prowl around London it doesn’t make sense for them to be looking for souls in China. To keep this from getting out of hand every post in a kishin mission must be at least 500 words. While these will be self-run the staff will overview them and if the word count is not met, powers not belonging to the character are used, or any general power playing or ridiculousness occurs the mission may be deemed failed and/or rewards will be withdrawn.
Now as for the missions themselves there will be three different kinds.
Stalks – The kishin goes after one human and consumes their soul.
Hunts – The kishin kills up to five humans and consumes their souls.
Massacres - The kishin kills up to ten people and consumes their souls.
[Label a mission with the appropriate mission type]
Each of these types carry their own advantages and disadvantages to the other types.
Stalks need at least 6 post to be considered completed. Rewards are 1 soul, 75 points, and 1 threat.
Hunts need at least 14 post to be considered completed. Rewards are up to 5 souls, 150 points, and up to 5 threat.
Massacres need at least 20 post to be considered completed. Rewards are up to 10 souls, 250 points, and up to 10 threat.
Threat adds up as you take more missions and once you reach 10 threat you are considered a target of Shibusen. What this means is that once 10 threat is met all future missions become death-enabled and if they desire a team can join your thread and hunt you down while the kishin egg attempts to carry out their goal of consuming souls and avoid being killed. Now if neither side could kill the other without permission things may stagnate so to fix that.
If the team is of the same level as the kishin egg the team must give permission to have a member killed.
If the team is of a higher level than the kishin egg the team cannot be killed unless permission is given.
If the team is of a lower level than the kishin egg the team can be killed but the kishin egg cannot unless permission is given.
If a team does not want to die all they have to do is not go after a kishin egg that is a higher rank than them. Kishin eggs have a harder time and lack the ability to decide if a team goes after them, that doesn’t seem fair but that is balanced out with
As fun as kishin eggs may be soul eater is about the students and as such kishin eggs will die. When this happens the player can either delete the account and make a new one or rename the account. Either way they will keep all the points earned by the kishin egg. This process continues for every kishin egg they make but does not carry over to other character types. These points can be used to purchase upgrades for a character so after the deaths of a few weak kishin eggs a stronger one can be upgraded right away to give them a better chance of staying alive.
For kishin eggs to ascend the ranks it is similar to students but require a substantial amount of souls.
One star kishin eggs require 100 souls to advance to two star
Two star kishin eggs require 700 souls to advance to three star
Three star kishin eggs require at least 1000 total souls to be able to transform into a full kishin
Any souls must be gained through missions so any souls consumed through backstory regardless of how many only count towards their starting rank and not to their advancement or ascent to kishin level.
Just because a team enters your mission doesn't mean they should automatically get your soul, and vice versa if a lower leveled team tries to push themselves. As such there should be a way for either side to get away and keep their souls for another day. Of course the environment along with each sides abilities should be taken into consideration but as a general rule.
At the same level one side must avoid being spotted for four post
At one level higher one side must avoid being spotted for five post
At two levels higher one side must avoid being spotted for six post
This way even in a one star/three star match up the one star still has the slimmest chance to escape. If the hunting side finds the escapee before the post are up the count clears so if they try to escape later the same number of post must be made.
After the evasion post are met the thread will end. This means any souls that were gained before still count but any that would have been gained after are not. Same for a team, no souls or points are gained upon escape/failure to kill the kishin.
Do keep specif factors in mind as well as the escape needs to make sense. Hiding in a city will have a greater chance of working than hiding in an open field. Also any abilities that allow one side to find the other, such as soul perception, count as finding the target.
