Someone save me from my own stupidity before my brain has an aneurysm.....

How many "bursts" can a user perform per round? And for what purpose is concentration? What happens to Amaterasu when both concentration and round/level time has elapsed?

The Main File wrote:
It cannot be doused by normal water unless it was created or manipulated by a creature with at least 18 ranks in the Ninjutsu skill for 1 minute (by means of a Suiton technique),


How would one go about manipulating water for 1 minute? Does this require performing several Suiton ninjutsu over the course of a minute, or would taking 10 to increase perform time suffice?

Only one, and that's easy: make water, dump Amaterasu'd subject in, wait 1 minute. The end.

"Ahh!!! Help me, I am burning!"
"Ok"
"It's still burning!"
"Yeah, just wait one minute"


Countering Ameterasu for dummies... hmm, needs more tips for how to survive the minute.

Thanks guys, appreciated. I've been scratching my head on that one for far too long.

Is it just me or is amaterasu underpowered? you can spend 6 chakra and some mangeyko blindness for 6d6 fire damage and some burning (which can of course be pumped up if you sink more chakra into it). However, there is a reflex save for half and to avoid the burning. This seems okay, but compare it to the much lower level Goukakyuu. You spend 2 chakra with no need to pump it up and no mangeyko blindness, and get 10d6 damage in an AoE with a reflex save for half, albeit with no burning. Am I missing something here?

If you want 10d6 with Goukakyuu, then you need to spend 10 chakra, not just 2.
Amaterasu can be pumped as high as 15d6, and can also use chakra to increase the Save DC.
It's targeted without the need to make any kind of Hit Roll.
Because it is a much higher rank the Save DC is going to be naturally much higher as well.

I did a variant of Amaterasu as a Blaze Release in the Community Compendium if you're looking for something as an alternative.
