>What is this?Saiyan Story is a series of Choose Your Own Adventure threads in which you play the part of a Saiyan Warrior. Decisions are made by vote, with the first option to earn three winning.>StatsPower Level: 6,500,000Health: ExcellentKi: 100%>RecapFita's parents struck a deal with you, promising to reform and serve you in exchange for their survival. You left them and travelled with your family, Vegeta, Raditz, Nappa, and Goku, as well as a pair of saiyans Fita's parents had been holding. You trained on various planets with them before returning to Earth. Several years later, you were alerted to a city on Amembo Island being attacked. Gathering most of the others and rushing to the scene, you encountered two androids of the now defunct Red Ribbon Army. After destroying much of the city, they led you to a wasteland to the North, where they revealed how Doctor Gero had spied on your and analyzed your techniques. You transformed into a Super Saiyan, which surprised them, but they were still confident in their ability to defeat you. You prepare to fight Android 19
>>29182556>>29182545>>29182514>>29182494>>29182579>>29182593"Oh? How many times stronger would you say?" you ask."Several" the old man replies."Several..."you laugh. "You say it's been a while since you've seen my techniques. Let me show you one I picked up a bit more recently. Tell me, did the good Doctor program you with the ability to fear?"You focus, tapping into a familiar power source. Your muscles expand, a golden aura surrounds your body, your hair stands tall and turns gold. You let out a mighty yell and complete the transformation into a Super Saiyan.Android 19 eyes you curiously. "Technique not found in files, twenty" he says to the old man. "Technique varies from listed ability: Kaio-Ken.""Indeed, the increase is far more substantial" the old man concedes. "Still, his power is well within acceptable parameters for you to deal with him on your own."Android 19 nods and turns his attention back to you, assuming a defensive stance.>A. Say something>B. Do something
>>29183024>B. Unsheate the sword and rush him, use an afterimage when he tries to counter and then hit him. Aim for the wrists.
>>29183024>BRush, afterimage flash, crack the old man's dome with an axe kick.
>>29183054An afterimage flash, was the original plan. Afterimage flash, slash to the wrists.Come on, it was like five minutes ago.
>>29183093He's an android though, don't they have good sensors instead of relying just on vision? Plus they don't have the involuntary reaction to protect their eyes (why would someone program that?), and since it's a kicharge it might just absorb it.
>>29183054>>29183060>>29183085>>29183093>>29183161You charge Android 19, unsheathing your sword as you do so. At the last instant, you use an afterimage flash. 19 strikes it, and it explodes in a flash of light and energy, knocking him back a few steps. You appear behind him, intending to slash his wrists, but he surprises you by moving towards the blast, causing you to miss your attack. He holds out his right palm and absorbs the residual energy from the afterimage, turning and shooting an energy wave at you with his left hand.>A. Deflect>B. Dodge>C. Let it hit you>D. Something else
>>29183214>CAn afterimage has weak hitting power, just tank it and cut off his hands
>>29183214>DSplit it with the sword and kick him in the head.
>>29183249He didn't say it was just the energy from the afterimage.
>>29183172>>29183214Only one support for flash afterimage this time.Or would regular afterimage have had the same result?>>29183214>B. Dodge and continue attacking with melee>>29183249He probably didn't use just that energy.
>>29183214Slap it back into his face, follow right after it while he's blinded.
>>29183303This one.I mean its just regular energy, right?
>>29183272>>29183276>>29183294Which is why >>29183270 makes sense.An opponent facing a raised sword will expect the attack to come from the sword. A kick would be a surprise, and would still leave our sword free to punish 19 for grabbing our leg.
>>29183357>>29183380Alright, I'll give you this vote then.But next time when I say "energy flashbangs aren't good against androids" let's please go with it, please?
>>29183357Consider >>29183380 a vote for >>29183270
>>29183438>>29183416>>29183415>>29183380>>29183270You rush towards the energy wave, slashing through it with your sword. The blast is powerful, but the energy within your sword is able to counteract it, albeit with difficulty. You manage to break through the blast and deliver a kick to the head of the surprised Android, who is sent flying several feet backwards, landing on his back. He is quickly back on his feet and rushes directly at you. Fighting your way through that attack took some energy out of you.>A. Dodge>B. meet his charge>C. Let him hit you>D. Something else
>>29183519>D. Afterimage (non-flash) out like if we moved to the right, but move back, rush him when he diverts to the wrong course.
>>29183519>B.Clashing: It's what the cool saiyans are doing!
>>29183519D. Afterimage mine. Follow up by chopping him in half.
>>29183519>DDodge, feint with the sword and punch 19 in the face.
>>29183581We just tried that and he absorbed it you stupid fuck.
>>29183581He absorbs those, so don't.>>29183603I vote for>>29183582
>>29183636>>29183610>>29183582You dodge his attack and feint with your sword. He shifts to block the strike, and you deliver a mighty punch to his face that sends him flying back. He manages to right himself and hovers in the air, waiting for you to make the next move.>a. Charge>B. Wait>C. Say something>D. Energy attack of some kind>E. Something else
>>29183689>ACharge, and actually swing the sword for his head.
>>29183689>A. Chargebut>E. Stop on our tracks right before he launches his counter and then we counter-counter
>>29183689A. C. THAT ALL YOU GOT?
>>29183828Voting >>29183721It's a classic setup, and one which an android with no intuition should miss.
>>29183873>>29183851>>29183721You charge Android 19 at top speed, and this time you actually swing the sword at his head. He catches the blade in his right hand, and with his left strikes you in the face.>A. let go of the sword and put some distance between you and him>B. Hit him>C. Energy attack>D. Something else
>>29183928Grab the hand hitting you at the wrist, superpowered ki kick to the elbow of the arm holding our sword.
>>29183928>D. Hold the sword with one hand, use the other to break his wrist.
>>29183928use our momentum from charging to swing our legs forward and kick his face in
>>29183928B.Get him off you and your sword. DO NOT LET GO OFF IT O GOD NO.
We are having so much trouble with 19 oh god oh god oh god we are going to get raped when 16/17/18 show up I can't even imagine what will remain of our anus when cell comes Oh god oh god oh god oh god

>>29184011>>29184020We are going to need ssj3 for this shit
>>29184047I think we understand how dangerous this is.
If 18 ends up not evil in this time line, we are so grabing at thator maybe give it to Raditz... he needs a nice girl
>>29184068>>29184044>>2918396619 attempts to strike to in the face again, but you manage to grab his hand by the wrist just before it makes contact. While he struggles against you, you deliver a Ki Kick to the elbow of the hand holding your sword. The strike causes his right palm to open, freeing your sword. However, his left palm also opens, and he unleashes an energy blast in your face. The power of it causes you to lose your grip on his wrist, and you fall towards the ground, turning over at the last second and landing on your feet.The Android smirks down at you.>A. Charge>B. Wait>C. Energy attack of some kind>D. Something else
>>29184144>B.C'mon, guys, we've been succeeding at countering this fat slow bastard.
>>29184144B.Lets not do that again
>>29184144>D. Fake charge so he comes at us, then we counter him.
>>29184144>B"My, you're an annoying one."
>>29184230>>29184180>>29184167"My, you are annoying" you comment as the Android flies down towards you at top speed.19 punches downward at you, and you jump to the side, his fist crashing into the ground. You deliver a Ki Kick to the side of his head, and he goes flying sideways, bouncing across the ground, growling as he gets back to his feet.>A. Charge>B. Counter>C. Energy attack of some kind>D. Something else
>>29184330>BCatch him by the wrists and mouthblast him.
>>29184144Point at him and shout "Quick, divide by zero" and hope his head explodes.
>>29184330>D. Run from him, then suddenly stop and counter.>>29184349What part of:>ABSORBS ENERGYIs hard?
>>29184370What part of PLURAL is hard? I said "WRISTS!" AS IN BOTH WRISTS!
>>29184330>BCounter works best. We seem to be about evenly matched, we need to make sure we're careful
>>29184413>>29184406>>29184384>>29184349You decide to wait and counter his next attack. The Android smirks and blasts the ground at your feet, which opens up into a large hole, which you begin to fall in.>A. Fall into the hole>B. Fly out, quickly!>C. Something else
>>29184456>C. Blast ourselves a tunnel and go all the way back to the surface
>>29184456>A.He'll be expecting us to fly out.
>>29184456>CFly up, and be ready to grab him around the wrists as he tries to rush us.

>>29184627>>29184584>>29184569>>29184489You fall into the hole, and blast yourself a tunnel, making a path to the surface, coming up behind Android 19>A. Charge>B. Energy Attack while he isn't looking!>C. Something else
>>29184662>Bblast him to bits!
>>29184662Sword through the skull.
>>29184662>A. Charge with a vertical slash, try to hit him in a half.
>>29184691Best suggestion yet.
>>29184684Seconded, but I'd add to be aware of him attempting to catch the blade.
>>29184691Voting for this.
>>29184662A.Attack with your sword, make sure he doesn't catch it. Do it like >>2918469Afterimage if necessary
>>29184691>>29184707>>29184742You charge at the Android from behind, raising your sword for a vertical slash meant to cut him in two. The Android turns, eyes widening as your blade descends, barely managing to catch it in his right hand. He delivers a kick to the side of your face, then another, and another.>A. Let go of the sword and put distance between you and him>B. Hit him>C. Something else
>>29184777>CPush your energy against him, like when you go to fly but instead of at the ground below you at him.
>>29184777C. CHARGE INTO THAT MOTHERFUCKERGET THAT SWORD THROUGH HIS SKULL
>>29184777>C. Catch his fist and use our legs to lock it, then twist it and rip it off
>>29184777>C.Ki kick in the gut, pull back with a ton of force afterwards.
>>29184777>BGrab his ankle and place a kick at his hip joint.
>>29184828*meaning the hand he's holding our sword with*
>>29184828He's kicking you, not punching you
>>29184827This. Take the beating and go for the sword stab
>>29184777Grab his next kick, then Mouthblast.
>>29184777>CPunch the back of the sword and use it as a wedge.
>>29184850Refer to >>29184845It's 4 am here, I'm getting a bit the words are getting hazy in my head.
>>29184859>>29184827>>29184806You put more strength and energy into your sword, still trying to slice downward and cut him in two. The sword glows briefly, then suddenly shatters in the grip of the Android, who laughs and delivers an energy wave to your chest that sends you flying far back and high into the air.>A. Charge back at him>B. Counter>C. Retreat>D. Something else
>>29184909no one.... NO ONE BREAKS OUR SWORD!!!>B
>>29184909NOOOOO MY SWORD I LOVED THAT SWORD MORE THAN FITAseriously though it's pretty much GG there is now way in he'll we can take cell even with that me chamber
>>29184909>B."I SPENT TWO YEARS AND A MONTH MAKING THAT SWORD YOU SON OF A BITCH!"
>>29184909>BRam our fist in his mouth and Dijon Driller out the back of his head.
>>29184909Oh well, Andorid 19 had a power of 10 Million according to the wikia, if he's able to fight us like this at 325 million, assume that head an increase of 32,5 from what he was in the series. If the same is applied to Cell he'll have a power level of 30 billion.
>>29184909>DHave a single sweat bead go down our face, and make low grunting noises while vibrating slightly.
>>29184909"Well that's a waste of two years.">B.
>>29184933SOM only gave it to us so he could break it. Just like he kept Gero alive for no other reason than he wanted to force the Androids arc.
>>29184971Seriously we are fucked
>>29184971W-we could still fusion with everyone else right?
>>29185067It's not going to be enough. SOM will ensure that it's not enough.
>>29185067Teach the dance to Vegeta, Goku and Bardock.Fuse with Bardock via dance, Vegeta fuses with Goku via dance.Then we use potara to fuse the fusions.Hahaha
>>29185003People were calling it from day one, and he was too lazy to come up with new androids. And I'm gonna guess that cell will look the same too. Seriously SOM, do the words "Butterfly Effect" ring any bells.
>>29184927>>29184933>>29184957>>29184970>>29184982"I SPENT TWO YEARS AND A MONTH MAKING THAT DAMN SWORD YOU SON OF A BITCH!" you yell at him. The Android laughs and charges at you, pulling his right fist back to deliver a punch. You shift to dodge, aiming to counter with a Dijon Driller to the head, but he delivers a knee to your chest, followed by a downward punch to the side of your head that sends you crashing to the ground. You manage to stand, but you're feeling tired. You have no idea how long you can keep this up."I told you, Doctor Gero programmed us well" Android 20 tells you. "Still, you have put up an admirable fight. However, I think we both realize you can not win.">A. Say something>B. Do something
>>29185111"Do you have balls?">B. Spin backwards and Hyperkick to his Robot Gonads>>29185096>>29185003You guys aren't fans of DB Multiverse eh?
>>29184971Wait a fucking minute I just remembered we are way back from dbz storyline time frame cell won't be ready for years maybe
>>29185096I used several other Androids, 17 and 18 appeared in multiple timelines, by that same logic, 19 and 20 could as well. Besides, I always thought they were underutilized characters
>>29185127ThisWhy isn't everyone helping us?
>>29185130We timeskipped a lot and Gero made the androids earlier.
>>29185127No, I'm not a fan of a shit-worthless QM, a quest run by the "first to three" rule some of the time and QM fiat the rest of the time, and a complete lack of any system for determining degree-of-success.
>>29185158Ehh its not like we will survive 17/18 anyway
>>29185198You didn't get the reference. I'm disappointed.
>>29185215The webcomic, right?
>>29185215Fuck off trip fag.
>>29185111...but Android 20 IS Gero.>>29185127Gast Carcolh was a great idea.
>>29185204Guy guys what if we are like the future trunks time line and we do get absolutely raped by the other androids and time skip happens and bulma sends whatever youngin survived back in time to warn alternate universe frank
>>29185176>>29185154>>29185127"Do you have any balls, old man?" you ask, spinning backwards and trying to Ki Kick Android 20 between the legs. He jumps back just in time to avoid it, laughing. "Remain focused on Android 19" he advises. "He is your primary threat."You see the others tensing, looking ready to jump in. Android 20 also notices, and smirks."None of you will interfere" he tells them. "Unless, of course, you are prepared to contend with me. Now, resume your battle" he tells you.Turning, you see Android 19 landing not far in front of you, smirking confidently."Soon you will be nothing but a drained corpse" 19 tells you. "Your energy will be mine, so delicious, yes.">A. Say something>B. Do something
>>29185309>B.Use Kaio-ken while a super saiyan and deliver a beatdown charge.
>>29185279Yeah, but watch the anime, he claimed that Gero had died years before 19 and 20 encountered the Z fighters, that's why the Z fighters were surprised when Bulma revealed he was Gero
>>29185309B. Get in really close and aim for his head.
>>29185309can we Kaio-ken in super saiyan?we should probably try.
>>29185309>B. Rush in, feint, Find a way to grab hold of both his arms and rip them the hell off. Every single attempt at giving us our only chance at this have met failure so it's our last shot.>>29185249Correct.>>29185251Hey, look, someone is mad. How cute of you!I wish more people were as cute as you guys that get mad with some work you dislike and attempt to smear shit on it, instead of having the balls and making something of your own. We'd have lots of interesting threads surely! pic related, it's you when you realize how worthless you are
>>29185373>>29185343I'll warn you right now, that can backfire BADLY >>29185343>>29185372>>29185380Vote
>>29185309kaio-ken times 10 and deliver the beat down.
>>29185396vote for>>29185380We are pretty screwed otherwise.
>>29185396>that can backfire BADLYYOLO
>>29185396We're fucked either way, so we might as well go for it.
>>29185400NOT x10. That would kill us for sure.>>29185396What if we tried a half-power kaioken? Gain half again our power instead of doubling it?
>>29185396So keep fighting in the same way so we can get our ass kicked like the plot dictates?
>>29185309 Single the others to join and grab him from behind.
>>29185396I can't see anything else working. Energy attacks are counter-productive, our sword is busted. Our back is to the wall
>>29185454I like it. It's almost as if we're using our abilities intelligently.Vote.
Can't we mind-rape Gero's brain-in-a-jar?
>>29185476>>29185458>>29185451>>29185429>>29185373>>29185343"Kaio-Ken!" you yell, and you feel your already super enhanced power double.You rush Android 19, and deliver a mighty kick to his stomach, followed by an axe kick to the back of his head that sends him crashing to the ground.>A. Charge, press the attack>B. Power down before you hurt yourself>C. Retreat>D. Something else
>>29185396... Why do I get the feeling that if Frank Kaio-Ken'd now, his heart would probably explode of his chest or something?Anyway, voting for >>29185380
>>29185537>ASingle punch to the braincase, then power down.
>>29185545Yeah he is going to die then we get heaven training arc
>>29185537A.NOW Rip his arms off.
>>29185566just chew a bean and go for it
>>29185537>A. Charge, press the attackFirst rip his hands off. THEN power down.
>>29185537>D, Charge, rip off both arms and then crush his head.then>D. Power down as soon as possible
>>29185537>AUnrelenting attack. Don't waste a second
>>29185566Our backs are to the wall and there's really nothing else left to us, unless you are hinting that we let Fita save the day or something.
JUST KNOW GUYS IF WE GO DOWN WITHOUT TAKING OUT BOTH OF THEM OUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS ARE FUCKED
>>29185588this, nice dubs
>>29185588>>29185584>>29185572>>29185554You charge down at the Android, who struggles to get to his feet. Crashing into him, you grab him by the wrists. His palms open and he delivers a pair of powerful energy waves that strike you head on, causing you horrible pain.>A. Push through the pain, rip off his arms!>B. Get out of there!>C. Something else
>>29185646>AWe're already passed committed.
>>29185646>Bno point in beating 19 if we're crippled vs 20I mean, 20 is even stronger than 19
>>29185646>A. Rip his arms off, then stomp his head.
>>29185566Oh, shut up, you colossal fucknugget. I don't fucking care anymore. I really don't. Because I'm sick and fucking tired of you railroading us through the fucking plot, and I would get behind ANY suggestion that flies in the face of what you're trying to get us to do. You are EASILY, WITHOUT DOUBT the single worst part of this whole process.
>>29185646>CGet out of Kaio-Ken, but remain in Super Saiyan. I have a feeling if we go any longer we'll surely die or something almost as bad will happen.After that, just keep punching him until he drains himself of energy trying to dodge or block. Once that happens he'll be forced to try and drain us. That's when we'll rip his hands off.>>29185685>>29185690You realize he's just baiting us, guys... please reconsider.
>>29185706stay mad bitch nigga
>>29185743I'm gonna bet on "death", but I also think if we consider how hard Somnius made this fight (fights with opponents stronger than us have been easier) that this is our only option at the moment, especially considering we already did it.>past the point of no return
>>29185743Seconding?Well, it's too late.
>>29185700>>29185690>>29185685>>29185741You struggle through the pain and pull with all your might. Planting your feet firmly on his chest, you pull, and pull, and pull. With a horrific sound, his arms are ripped off, oil spraying from the ruined appendages still attached to his body. With another kick you knock him back to the ground, and you leap into the air, coming down on top of him and crashing your foot into his head, crushing it into tiny pieces.>A. Power down to Super Saiyan>B. Power down to normal>C. Something else
>>29185743Don't bother, you've already lost. We've gone the equivalent of SSJ2 just now, and SOM still has 19 fighting us off. It's completely fucking ridiculous.
>>29185706Usually when the QM warns you you're about to do something colossally stupid, you should stop doing it.I don't know what you expect to accomplish by trying to be defiant, as if it's going to change his mind or something.You're amazingly stupid.
>>29185798>B. All the way.>C. GET A SENZU BEAN
>>29185646C.Let the blasts pull us away but put Ki Strands on the Android's fingers and wrists, then pry them back and rip his hands off.
>>29185798>C attack 20
>>29185815this, do we even have a senzu?
>>29185798>CPower down to SS, but let everyone know mentally that we're in rough shape after that.
>>29185798>A. Power down to Super SaiyanthenSENZU BEAN!
>>29185848"please kill me now!"
>>29185823The Ki strands don't fucking work. We tried that already.
"That was pretty fun Gero. How about we meet back here in a week and you bring another android?"
>>29185798...Why do I get the feeling that this whole fight is just an excuse for trying to get Salta & Spinna to go Super-Saiyan and clean house?Voting for >>29185815>>29185838>>29185846>MFW No one thought to bring a Senzu Bean
>>29185798>>A. Power down to Super Saiyan>>C. Eat Senzu bean.
>>29185907We have Vegeta in the party. Since there's at least someone with a brain, so I doubt we'd be out of beans.
>>29185798>A. Power down to Super Saiyango get a bean
>>29185798>BPower down and MIND CRUSH the brain in the jar
>>29185907Because that's precisely the kind of thing SOM would do? ... why don't we fake our death and make it happen?
>>29185860>>29185838>>29185815>>29185907You power down to normal strength and turn to the others. "Senzu bean! Now!" you shout.Fita tosses one to you, and you eat it immediately upon catching it. You feel your strength restored, and a small bit stronger.Android 20 stares at you as you rise to your feet."You are far more powerful than the doctor had anticipated" he tells you. "But you still have no chance. I am far superior to the Android 19 model, and after observing you in battle against him, I hold a considerable advantage over you.">A. Say something>B. Do something
>>29185942>Vegeta>BrianThe same stupid fuck that let Cell become perfect?
>>29185977>ACOME AT ME BROOOOOOOO>BFlare our aura

>>29185977>yeah well, I can't let you activate 17 or 18, so I'll have to kill you here and now.Attack
>>29185977>BWe know he's still Dr. Gero, so he must still have a brain under that stupid hat.Try to use our psychic powers to kill him from inside his mind.
>>29185977>A"A weapon, lecturing a warrior? I wasn't aware Gero programmed you with a sense of humor."
>>29185980Not stupid, just arrogant.
>>29185995Oh and obviously, go back to Super Saiyan and join them in the party.>he'll be so busy with the mooks we can just wreck him
>>29185977"can you stop a power level 20x that? if not tell Gero to send a Android who can."fake it until we make it.
>>29185907>implying this isn't based Tien's debut
>>29186025this might be the best choice actually, if he calls our bluff we would be forced to use Kaio-ken anyway.
>>29186050Voting for banter. >>29186007
Banter. Have him monologue as much as possible. Maybe he'll reveal a weakness
>>29186055We shouldn't go above a x3, and only use a x5 if we can initiate a beam duel and win with one shot.
>>29186028It should be.King Piccolo was never released from the magic electric rice cooker, so unfortunately we're not going to get the best character in the series to appear.>>29186050Ohh, do these ones >>29186007 >>29186025
>>29185980Different Timeline, Different Vegeta.>>29186028Why would Tien even feature at this point though? He could still at the Crane School with Chiaotzu and his power-level's probably only in Triple-Digits... It would be funny if he showed up right now like Mr. Satan did in the Cell Games though.>>29186050Going with >>29186007
>>29186081That might actually be a viable last-ditch. If he attacks with the palm beams, hit him with a kamehameha. There's got to be a limit to how fast those palm thingies can switch directions, and there's got to be a limit to how fast they can absorb energy.So find those limits and shatter them in one go. Sure it'll kill us, but this is DBZ. Death is meaningless.
>>29186082>>29186078>>29186066>>29186007>>29186100>>29186025>>29186055>>29186106"A weapon, lecturing a warrior?" you ask. "I wasn't aware that Gero programmed you with a sense of humor."He chuckles. "He programmed us to learn from what we do and see. And I saw quite a bit in your battle.""Well, can you handle a power twenty times what I demonstrated?" you ask. "If you can't, tell Gero to send an Android who can."20 smirks. "You're bluffing. I saw how much energy your full power took out of you in that battle. Anything beyond that would be too much for you to handle. As it is, you barely survived what you used against 19. You are outmatched. You will fall, and both Doctor Gero and the Red Ribbon Army will be avenged.">A. Say something>B. Do something
>>29186106Vegeta got an early lesson on how being evil only brings more trouble and misery. We're the father figure he needed in King Vegeta's absence.And who knows about the others of the dragonball universe? the androids are showing up WAY earlier than in canon. Surely some other things could have changed too.Maybe Launch or Yaijirobe will become uber powerful.>>29186162>A"Well, unlike you I'm not alone. How will you content with more than one fighter with this transformation?"
>>29186106>implying he hasn't seen us on the news and already started trainingWe'll meet Tien when he's already built as fuck.>>29186100>best characterI don't know, Piccolo didn't introduce Solar Flare, the most effective technique in DBZ.
>>29186162>AWe will see about that.>B Attack him
>>29186162>A."Yeah, but if I kill you when I die, don't I still win?"
>>29186162>B. super saiyan kaio-ken times 20 rush him.
>>29186162>AWell then, let me ask you something does an android like yourself ever experience fear?>BCharge at him with a Super Kaioken
>>29186162>A. "What, you have some kind of master plan?">B. Tell everyone telepatically to gang on him, then we also rush in, super saiyan mode.
>>29186162wait I thought Gero WANTED to wipe out the red ribbon army destroyed, he should make up his damn mind.
>>29186211No.>>29186162"And if I'm not the only one who can achieve this power? What then?"
>>29186162>A"Again, you are a weapon. You know nothing of battle besides what you calculate, you have no ambition beyond your programming, no capacity for growth beyond what you are now. I almost pity you.""Never underestimate the potential of a Saiyan, never underestimate the will of a father, and most of all never underestimate my recklessness."
>>29186222He wanted to rule the Red Ribbon Army, you destroyed the androids that could have made that happen, and the army fell apart.
>>29186211That much power will kill us, so we have to make it count. It needs to be during a beam duel, where we have a chance to blast him suddenly in the amount of time it takes that technique to pulverize our body.
>>29186162fuck us now we HAVE to use a 20X Kaio-ken
>>29186231This. We have to do something to force his retreat so we can plan.
>>29186243Can't he just make his own army now? Seems like he's crying over spilt milk when he has a cow that can produce better milk plus robotic helpers to enhance the taste and milk the cow. And take out the lactose if he's lactose intolerant.
>>29186231Zyzz.And a big Fuck you! Al dante
>>29186318Well, he was in the process of destroying a city before, so I imagine he believes he COULD conquer the world if Frank weren't in the picture.
>>29186193>>29186202>>29186204>>29186214>>29186219>>29186223>>29186231"Once again, you're a weapon" you tell him. " You don't know anything of battle beyond what you calculate. You don't have any ambition beyond your programming, and no capacity to grow beyond what you are now. Honestly, I almost pity you. Never underestimate the potential of a Saiyan, never underestimate the will of a father, and most of all, you should NEVER underestimate how reckless I am.""Yes, yes, you've made your point" he tells you. "Are you prepared to die?""Maybe, but if I kill you when I die, don't I still win?" you ask.He smirks "Perhaps, but it won't come to that.""Oh? Unlike you, I'm not alone" you tell him. "How will you contend with more than one fighter that has this transformation?" you ask, transforming into a super saiyan once again.He grins. "Simple, by killing them before they can transform."He turns and rapidly fires beams from his eyes, striking each of the others in their chests. They all collapse to the ground in crumpled heaps.>A. Fight Android 20>B. Help them!>C. Something else
>>29186325We're all gonna make Super Saiyan, brah
>>29186387Who had this fantastic idea.>B. Help one of them and tell him to help the others.>A. FIght Android 20: Super Saiyan Kaioken x5
>>29186387>CSSJ2.Three wives and two sons is more than enough.
>>29186410This is good, if dangerous.
>>29186410No. If push comes to shove we wish them back, but becoming distracted will get US killed too. And then it's game over.
Why is no one joining in on this fight? If we all ganged up on him, we could take him! It's 9 against one!>Frank>Salta>Spina>Fita>Bardock>Goku>Vegeta>Nappa>Raditz
>>29186414True, but I don't think Somnius would be that nice to us.>>29186441Because someone had the brilliant idea to brag and now they are all dead/dying
>>29186410This, I suppose.And seriously, SOM? Why weren't we given at least some kind of option to prevent him from blasting the others after the first person?And are they dead or just injured?
>>29186414Definatelyjust fucking destroy himall rage, no mercy
>>29186441They got shot down because we brought them into it. They were nowhere NEAR strong enough to be of any use.>>29186414Only thing for it. Because >>29186410 is bad all over.
>>29186441Because all of them combined doesn't even come close to our SSJ1.
>>29186387kaio-ken x20 Kill him Now.
>>29186414Well, this, I guess. The buildup was pretty shit, but this.
>>29186457>>29186427>>29186417>>29186410You fly over to your fallen comrades, fishing a bean out of Fita's pouch and making her eat it. You tell her to give the others beans before turning to face Android 20, only to find him no longer there.>A. Say something>B. Do something
>>29186451This entire thing is an elaborate setup from the start. Also, as >>29186457 pointed out, SOM is never going to let us prevent shit like that. Ever.So the only thing for it is to go for SSJ2 and the win. If we aint out of control we aint in control.
>>29186414Hell, even i'm seeing red from thatFrank would be absolutely fucking raging. ssj2 is all about unrelenting fucking murder and rage
I think we've been seriously underestimating how strong these guys are. We are the strongest in our group by far, and 19 gave us a run for our money. We shouldn't be surprised at how much of a liability everyone else had become.
>>29186496time to gather dragon balls and wish Gero and his android creations out of existence.
>>29186496>BCan we try to find the brain with out psychic powers?
>>29186496>A."Goddamn son of a- ARGH!">B.Start helping the others up.
>>29186496>BSSJ2 out of rage.Because this was EXACTLY the kind of shit I told you idiots would happen. Our entire team got the shit shot out of them and 20 got away through SOM's INCREDIBLE ability to railroad the shit out of you people.
>>29186496>>29186517Agreeing with this one.>>29186471>>29186499>>29186504>implying SOMNIUS would ever just hand us the SSJ2
>>29186496>BFly up and scan the area for any signs of movement.>>29186512Can't do that. They are technically cyborgs and the dragons are incapable of killing anything using a wish.
>>29186512Won't work. The dragon is only as powerful as its creator. Basically, if they're stronger than Kami, we can't wish them dead.
>>29186496>BNo words, just FUCKING RUN, IF FUCKING ANDROID 19 ALMOST KILLED US IMAGINE 18 AND 17 GODDAMN IT
>>29186527we're more than strong enough for it, we just needed the trigger, and this was itif anything 20 getting away just got us more pissed it som
>>29186527You know what? Arguing with you is pointless. Because either way SOM would have found a way to fuck us.
>>29186527Gohan managed to flash into SSJ2 momentarily before he fully unlocked it. It's possible.
>>29186591And of course you don't even list SSJ2 as an option. Why am I even surprised.
>>29186591Time to put out psychic training to use. Search for Gero's brain
>>29186524Hey, whoever said braggin was a good idea wasn't in their right mind. Regardless, SSJ2 isn't going to be handed to us just like that, especially since we'd need more power for it.>>29186559>>29186597Gohan was already in the billion case when he got to SSJ2>>29186565True. This is a no win situation, but I had to point out the other option (hope he turns Frank into SSJ2) depended on hope only.
>>29186597But the full transformation is still triggered by Goku dying.>>29186604We don't know it's even possible IC. Shut the fuck up.>>29186591We need to reach out with our psychic powers and try to locate Gero.
Gero is clearly concerned with anyone else achieving Super Saiyan. We have to get at least Salta and Spina going golden so that we can stand a chance.
>>29186628No, not that. Not running like a bitch. >>29186520Is the only option that makes any sense right now.
So, how's the work on that time machine coming along, Dr. Briefs?
WIll everyone just calm their titties? This is DBZ, this shit happens like 3 times an arc
>>29186659>You're now playing as Frank from the alternate past
>>29186677Yeah, but we weren't prepared for the androids coming nearly a decade earlier than canon.
>>29186701And being far stronger than canon.
>>29186608>>29186632>>29186517>>29186527You have no idea if this will work, but you close your eyes and stretch out with your mind. To your surprise, you touch the mind of somebody in the nearby canyon, stranger, it feels like Doctor Gero. You now have a fix on his location.>A. Go and confront Android 20/ Doctor Gero>B. Something else
>>29186729>A.oh god this is a terrible idea and it's the only one we've got
>>29186729>B. Tell the others to go and train in the Time Chamber>A. Go and confont Gero
>>29186729If you let him get back and activate the other androidsWeWillDie
>>29186729And we're locked in.
>>29186756Two people at a time, bro. You're going to have to be way more specific than that if you want to get anywhere with that idea.
>>29186729>BMake sure everyone's alright and have Fita, Salta and Spina come with you. Tell the others to stay and wait for us to return.Because we're utterly fucked anyway unless one of our saiayn wives goes super saiyan, and I really don't want to wish everyone back with the D-Ballz.
>>29186766>>29186755>>29186756>>29186741While Fita distributes senzu beans to your other injured companions, you fly to the canyon to confront Doctor Gero. Flying above the canyon and looking down, you see many tall rock formations he could easily hide under or behind. You can't see him anywhere, but you can feel that he is nearby.>A. Say something>B. Do something
>>29186824>B.Start destroying the formations. Maybe he'll get caught by a stray rock and loosen his braincase or somethin'.
>>29186791I'm aware, I'd actually go with these two first:Spia and Salta.But to be honest, consider that if this goes anything like the android saga/cell saga we'd be able to use 3 days or so to get our party going.>>29186824>A. Pretened to make an opening that he could use, but keep alert.
>>29186842Remember what happened in the show? He's just going to pop up and suck up all the energy we blast.We have to stay mentally alert. He could be anywhere.>>29186824try to get a lock on the doctor's mind.
>>29186879>>29186888>>29186864You attempt to get a lock on his mind, focusing, stretching out with your own mind in an effort to touch his. You feel it and sense his location, behind you. You turn just as he rushes towards you.(End Update)That's it for tonight folks, did everybody have fun? As always I will stick around to answer questions. Next update will be starting between 3:00 and 4:00 PM Eastern time.
>>29186921I had lots of fun, thanks again SOM.
>>29186921I had fun.I don't know why Frank didn't decide to teach his wives how to go super saiyan when they became powerful enough over the course of those ten years. Any reason for that?
>>29186953It took Frank extreme emotional distress and righteous fury to transform, the only one of your crew who has really had that in the last ten years if Fita, and Super Saiyan is not what she'd transform into.>>29186937Glad to hear it, hope to see you next thread
>>29186984But we've seen super saiyan being achieved without that kind of stress. And when it was, it could be triggered simply by thoughts of previous extreme emotional distress. Spina recalling how she saw Salta die, for example, would have been enough to provide the mental variable necessary for the transformation, like thoughts of Freeza did for Gohan.
>>29186984Goodnight everyone, it's like 3:00 AM here and tommorow I gotta wake up at 7:00
>>29187032Goodnight>>29187027Yeah, but Frank likely would not know that
>>29187027SOM only plays by the rules when it suits him.
>>29187069How fucking hard do you think it is to draw a line from "I first transformed when I was really angry" to "maybe remembering being angry could work for the others"?Because from where I sit, the answer is "not very".
>>29187105Meh, try it next time, it will probably work
>>29187105Maybe we shouldn't be so quick to timeskip then.But then, super saiyan seems actually HARDER for pure blood saiyans to achieve. Half-breed saiyans are the only ones to have achieved the form before adulthood, suggesting it might be more complicated for Salta and Spina than it will for Bardock.
>>29187147Oops. I meant for Erica. She's a half-breed.Bardock is pure blooded.
>>29187147Yeah, MAYBE. It's not like I've been voting against timeskipping every goddamn time. The problem is still that people need to start thinking things through. The flash afterimage, putting everyone in danger, letting 20 escape: every single thing that went wrong in this thread could have been easily avoided. >>29187136You controlled the timeskip. You decided that wasn't going to happen.
>>29187211Did you not understand my point?>super saiyan seems actually HARDER for pure blood saiyans to achieve. Half-breed saiyans are the only ones to have achieved the form before adulthood, suggesting it might be more complicated for Salta and Spina than it will for EricaMaybe we did try, but it wouldn't take. Pure-blooded saiyans might actually need to be in mortal danger and in a state of righteous fury. For half-breeds, it's easier.
>>29187256... unless you're Vegeta. In which case you'd just need to be very, very, very angry.
>>29187256"Seems" you say. Meaning you have no idea.See, I actually DID read what you wrote. But that doesn't change the fact that you don't know what would have happened, because we didn't try and SOM made a unanimous decision that it didn't happen.We could have done better and played smarter at every single major point.
hope you guys weren't gonna use the archives, lol...seriously, though, I'm actually kind of concerned for the archive troll guy. I mean, assuming it's the same guy. He used to write, you know, reasonable such and such on why thread so and so was a Bad Thread, even if it was a thread nobody would have ever archived and would've been forgotten quickly enough without his help.Now, though (again, assuming it's been the same guy all this time), he's just become hostile, and so have his descriptions. He used to be so nice, is what I'm trying to say, for a given value of nice. Like he was trying to say "you can do better", even if he seemed obsessed over threads that nobody else noticed or cared about. Now he's just...Do you think something's gone wrong? Like maybe something bad happened to him, or something? I kind of wish there were something I could do about this. I think that guy needs a hug.
>>29187642Something did go wrong, and it's not on his end.
>>29187690Oh, do you know him, then? Has he been under a lot of pressure, lately?
>>29187728You seem to have missed a crucial detail somewhere in the last half of the sentence, and in doing so have demonstrated what I was talking about."It's not on his end". Meaning it's us that have gone wrong. Players who still shout out our plans, put our family in danger, forget details of the immediately previous update, and suggest things that any background knowledge of the setting or ten minutes in the archives should clearly show to be impossible. Things have been like this since the very beginning, and they haven't gotten any better as posters have come and gone. We've had gorgeous rows over it, and then business as usual resumes in the next thread.That's probably why you've noticed a general souring of the mood.
...I don't know. Somehow, it seems kind of self-important to assume that the quality of Saiyan Story alone has been the reason for our favorite archiving troll's descent into bad feelings.I mean, he archives quite a lot of threads, you know. And he's been doing it for a while.
>>29187866When someone sees shit, it's not unusual for them to call it shit. And trust me, there's a LOT of shit on /tg/ these days. It's just that this quest stands out at times as being a special example of a few different kinds of bad: bad decisionmaking, bad roleplaying, bad DM'ing, and nasty shitstorms all in one place.
>>29187940He used to be such a nice fellow, you know. You really can see it, if you adjust the, you know, the thingy that shows the really downvoted threads, or doesn't, if you don't want it to.Someone needs to tell him to keep his chin up.
>>29188002You don't know him, he doesn't know you. You're not friends. You will never meet.Why bother.
>>29188044...Do you want a hug?I can't hug people over the internet, but you can pretend I am hugging you.
>>29188167I pretended you were hugging me. I don't like being touched. I would prefer that you stop. I'm taking a break from the quest after tomorrow. It's too much like watching a train wreck in slow motion and knowing there's nothing you can do to stop it.
archive people seem to be turning very bitchy lately across the board. Breaker Quest has given up on suptg because of the same problem.
