Mmmmm okay, the whole shots thing, effects him right after he takes it. That's the whole steep part about it. And the shots do not kill right away, no. It depends on where they hit the person, and then it just affects that area. So if he shot someone in the arm, it turns that spot on the arm a distorted color, then makes it unable to use for about an hour. But that effect won't start until the person notices they've been shot. So the bullet itself won't cause pain until the wound had been noticed. It will make you bleed but not by much. This gun is more of a tactical gun. But the bullets will never be right away kill shots. If e shoots someone in the head, they won't feel it penetrate. But once they feel the slight blood or until someone points it out, then it doesn't hurt them. And the shots only are used against something living and with a soul. Can't be shot other wise. Make sense? Any suggestions?
Now the mind thing, let me get into full detail. When someone calls out the challenge, Neir puts away all weapons. Then he simply takes off his mask and looks the challenger directly in the eye. Yes, they go into their mind but on equal terms. It's one of those things tht no one can really explain, it just happens. But after looking into his eyes, Neir immediately focuses and enters the mind of the challenger, where they will be strongest, as to give them an advantage, since he has done this ages times before and they did challenge HIM. At this point everything goes dark. Everything. All there is, is Neir and the challenger. Now, everyone's mind is unique, and so is their willpower. When Neir enters the mind of the challenger, then the challenger automatically gets the weapon unique to their mind. The weapon can be a bow, sword or whäever their special talent is. But in this state, everything comes down to sheer skill. All Neir has is his blade. No powers, just the skill he has with it. And that skill, is speed. Not like super fast, not like no one can match his speed but he is fast. That is how it works. Anymore questions?
