>implying Defense isn't easy
200 Defense - You can have a picnic on the surface of the sun and be pretty safe, minus the pesky problem of your picnic basket erupting into flames and any food you wanted being inedible. Military grade doomsday weapons will be a minor concern and nuclear arms are more about the problem of everyone else being dead, not yourself. Spiritual beings are the only things left which can cause you any real harm and even then they will have to go above and beyond to do so, manifesting powers with phenomenal force which might be better applied doing literally anything else than trying to punch through a literal man of steel.
Seireitei is crumbling and the Gotei is a shell of its former self. Ravaged by the plague, the surviving Shinigami struggle to maintain the balance, but with so few of them left, the work is taxing and their fortress-city has fallen to neglect. Spread thin across all fronts, their diminished presence has been noted by friend and foe alike.
The Arrancar have rebuilt Las Noches and are rallying. The throne remains empty, but self-styled Espada have risen up from among them and are vying for control, each one endlessly testing the others’ weaknesses. Too evenly matched for any one of them to claim the crown, they bide their time, waiting for the opportune moment.
On Earth, all seems well—but there is a war being fought in the shadows as the mortals find themselves lacking the protection they once had and so sorely need. The Quincy, having realized the oppressive specter of the Shinigami is no more, are flourishing, and are fighting the Hollow-breeds with renewed vigor.
