>Last thread: http://archive.foolz.us/tg/thread/31379061You are Naruto Uzumaki, born without any blessings and with the ever present stigma of your dead father's shame.Previously: You chose not to defile the faces of the Kage, instead using that time to work on your clone technique to finally pass the Ninja Academy's final exam; the one that you've already failed twice.After a couple hour's work with slow progress, you finally got your clones to stop trying to punch you out and fixed their features a little. Though the were still crazy useless.In your empty lot, you were intruded upon by a crazy green man training his squad of genin, going on about crazy ridiculous work outs that made your jaw just about drop at every mention of eight hundred pushups, two thousand jumping jacks, and plenty of other nonsense like that.Swallowing hard though, you mustered up the courage to approach him to ask fior some advice, meeting Might Guy, the Jonin that gets by just fine with sole reliance on taijutsu. He told his story of how he improved the one thing he had, and getting passed as a ninja.With his student in tears at the story, you're reassured with your own troubles, yet then that's when one of his students rains on your parade.A white-eyed kid named Neji called you trash, only chased off after Lee challenged him and you chose to fight for yourself.Instead, your adversary decides that you're noy even worth the time.Your training continued to the day of the exam...
>>31419519I came to roll badly and make us fail the entrance exam.
>>31419678I'm here to chose the most mind-numbingly boring options possible.
>>31419519Did your internet die?
>>31419713What? I said it'd be in a couple hours earlier.
>>31419705I'll back you up m8
>>31419678I think it's too late for that, we already learned how to clone.
>>31419713No, this guy always takes like 40 mins to post the first update of the thread once he actually starts the thread.
>>31419737It's just been 10 minutes since the start of the thread and you didn't post the next post.Usually the opening is prewritten.No pressure though
Man, I wanted to get my face pounded in by Neji so that we could gain experience vs a skilled opponent.
>>31419777Was getting other things ready. Sorry. I've been trying to do better with pre-writing openings.
>>31419780Unfortunately he doesn't want to dirty his fancy hands on us.But don't worry, I'm pretty sure Edge Lad will gladly beat us up.
>>31419780We could totally die if the fight is not supervised. >>31419801no big deal, i'm just not used to it.
>>31419780>Man, I wanted to get my face pounded ... by Neji-Anon, April 11, 2014
>>31419801You don't 'get better' at pre-writing openings. You either do or you don't.For this thread you clearly didn't.
“Naruto Uzumaki, please come into the exam room.”You hear, from Mizuki Sensei as he comes through the door, bidding you to come in.“That's me.” You try to smile a bit, though some of the other students are staring at you.“Oh look, the flunkie loser's gonna fail again. What is this- your fifth time?”You don't respond to the kids harassment's, if you tried to say anything it'd only get worse.You enter the room and take a seat. You've been in here before. One chair on a series of traditional wood planking. It'd be like a dojo if it had mats.Sitting at the head for examination are Iruka-Sensei and Mizuki-Sensei. Iruka sits to the left, holding up his board for examination purposes. A scar darker than his tanned face runs across the bridge of his nose and he has dark brown hair tied into a ponytail. Mizuki has medium-length hair for a man, white and kind of messy with no other real discernible features.They both wear the assault jackets of upper-ranked ninja.“Well, you've barely passed the written portions- again this year Naruto. You need to show us the Bunshin No Jutsu before we decide whether you pass or fail. Begin whenever you are ready.”You rise, taking a deep breath. This is it.Challenge roll! You know the technique, you've got this down!Less than 5 is crit 96+ is critfail.Your DC is 30 or below best of three rolls, go!
>>31419839Sasuke.Who I'm going to suggest we go gay for.Because who are we kidding.
Rolled 57>>31419871lowest of first three d100?
Rolled 86>>31419871What nonsense is this, you already had us do this last thread didn't you?
Rolled 99>>31419895Seriously fuck sasuke.I would be okay with failing simply because we won't get stuck with him.>>31419871DC of 30?But we learned the jutsu already
Rolled 36>>31419871Maybe I can turn our luck around
>>31419871>30% chance to succeed on something you've already shown yourself capable of performing. When it really matters.Seems reasonable.
>>31419928Point.Do you want a reason to touch the forbidden scroll or no?> Fatefail for Scroll acquistion.> Breakfate and succeed!
>>31419871Dude, did you forget last thread?>You went a bit above and beyond. When the final technique exam came around, you were able to make not one, but two perfect clones that could act independently.What was the point of rolling earlier?
Rolled 95>>31419975the fuck are you on about? The scroll isn't fucking magical, it's just knowledge, like how you don't teach random shmucks how to make nukes.
>>31419975What the fuck is fatefail and breakfate
>>31419975>Breakfate and succeed!Without the Kyuubi to boost our stamina, the shadow clone technique is worthless to us.Also, I wanna see the looks on their faces.
>>31419975>> Breakfate and succeed!
>>31419975What. No. Stop. What are you even doing? No, seriously. What are you trying to do?
>>31419968Because of the three rolls, it's actually a 65.7% chance to succeed, if you ignore crits.
>>31419975If we actually have regular stamina, then nothing in the scroll should be worth it. And really, why would a kid be able to touch it if he's normal?
>>31419975We gotta breakfate and succeed. Believe it!
>>31419871>You know the technique, you've got this down!>Your DC is 30 or below best of three rolls, go!>know the technique>DC 30>arbitrary 35% chance of failure on something you already knowuh okay
>>31420044My justification is that you can still flop on a test that you "know."But it's still in error because of the last thread's end.
>>31420044He corrected himself.
>>31419975> Breakfate and succeed!we can't just let Guy and Bushy Brows down
>>31420061>something we "know">70% chance of failing in on each rollYou have no idea how probability works, or you have no understanding of when to include failure.
You make the handseals and mold your chakra into form as you've practiced so hard for. You're going to show them. You're going to show them that the fruit of your labor!Smoke appears and your clones form. Two perfectly capable, identical copies of yourself. No mass behind them, but they're a good enough trick for an enemy that's an idiot or at least catch them off guard.You stare down at Iruka and Mizuki sensei, awaiting their response, hoping that they light up at your success.Iruka jots something down, his expression unchanged save for a little amused smirk,”Well then. You went and did it Naruto. That was one of your worst techniques right?”“Yeah Iruka-Sensei.” You smile besides yourself,”I trained really hard to get these guys right.”“Good to hear, I think with that, we can at least pass him.” Iruka looks to Mizuki, whom stares at you with condescending eyes.“I'm not so sure of that Iruka. His test scores were pretty low. The performance with the Bunshin technique was pretty average too. I don't see how we can just let him slip by like that.” The condescension fades as he waves off everything he just said,”But hey, so long as he doesn't get anyone killed in the field...”You stare him down before dropping your eyes to the ground. You know what he's talking about...> Don't say anything... And silently swear revenge.> Appeal to Iruka Sensei. You worked hard, right? You worked really hard!> Walk out of the room.> (Other)

>>31420497meant to link >>31420400
>>31419998Not exactly true.He's got extra chakra from the Kyuubi, but he also inherited his clans disposition to large chakra pools.He has roughly 4 times the chakra of a normal ninja, without the Kyuubi.He can't pull off a hundred clones, but he can still find some use with the shadow clone.
>>31420531He doesn't. Ygg made the Uzumaki clan have nothing special.
>>31420531It's no Kyuubi. No Blood-line.You'll be able to increase chakra pool though.
>>31420574Good. It seems obvious to me Chakra and Chakra control are both extremely important for all future techniques.
>>31420554The fuck is Ygg?
You raise your head, staring at the man that's supposed to be a goddamn teacher, gritting your teeth at him. It's the same thing. The same stupid thing that they shun you for.You don't even want to yell as tears of frustration crawl out of your eyes. You did the technique, you learned it and you took the stupid written test. Forget this. You storm out of the room cursing that white-haired assholes name in your mind. One of these days. One of these days you're gonna beat the shit out of him.You'll beat that smug look right out of his face, and that'll show him.You throw open the door even as Iruka-Sensei calls after you. You hear him say something to Mizuki-Sensei but it doesn't matter.You see someone in your way, one of the bullies from before pointing a finger at you and laughing. You can feel the eyes of other students watching you, yet they do nothing or join in on this fucker that's been plaguing you for the last year.> Punch him in the face and keep walking.> Push past and continue on out.> Stop and threaten him.> (Other)
>>31420623Oh. You can also do nothing. All of these choices will have an effect on how others view you after this.

>>31420791REMEMBER, THUMB OUTSIDE THE FIST!
>>31420891Fist to face contact with the first two nuckles only!
You stare at the kid for a moment, your vision like a red haze as you hear him call you a loser, flunkie, narutard, and a bunch of other names he's made up in the past year.You ball you fingers into a fist, shaking with rage as you feel your knuckles pop under the pressure, nails digging into your skin.“So you gonna go fail again next year? I'm gonna miss you Narutard!” The kid starts laughing and some of the others join in with him, even if just a bit nervously.“I passed.” You relax your fist for second.“Eh? What did you just say?” The bully's sincerely confused, like he can't believe his ears.“I said...” You throw a sudden right hook, smashing him into his jaw,”THAT I PASSED!”It feels good, knocking his sorry ass to the floor, even if you do already feel a sting in your knuckles. Hit bone probably.With the bully smoking in the floor, you stick your hands in your pockets to hide the damage as everyone stares on. You pass by some of the fuckers that never did anything like Kiba, Shino, Shikamaru.You don't even look at them with how good you feel right now. You never really let yourself get that angry before, and it felt good to hit him. It felt really good.Continuing on your way out, you stand outside for a bit, staring at the sky before taking a look at your fist. Skinned your knuckles on the bastard. Bruised a little bit too.After half an hour some of the students start to come out with the exams done, some of their parents coming to pick them up.> Stick around and watch them. Guy-Sensei said something about using pain?> Bug off and go to that lot that you've been training in.> Go home. Screw this day.> (Other)
>>31421010>Stick around and watch them. Guy-Sensei said something about using pain?
>>31421010> Stick around and watch them. Guy-Sensei said something about using pain?
>>31421010>> (Other)Guy-Sensei has impressed upon me the importance of physical training! Run around the lot until we shit blood!
>>31421010>2Training is more important.Oh, also, we don't wanna get caught by the kid's parents.Quick question: Now that we...er...passed, sorta, what happens now? Are we suppose to wait for news?
>>31421010this >>31421071 and go thank Guy
>>31421010Bug off and go to the lot. We're not gonna find Guy-sensei here.But we need to use this anger, this good feeling and see what we can do with it. If anything, it'll just get us motivated to start trying to do Guy-Sensei's workouts. And when Iruka sensei inevitably comes to find us, we can ask him again about exercises concerning chakra control.
>>31421010I agree with >>31421071Time to do situps until we shit in our jumpsuit
>>31421010Maybe we should wait around for Iruka to leave, so he can tell us what exactly we're supposed to do now?We never really thought past passing the test.
I'm gonna drop the Five Nations 3.0 rulebook here. It's basically an RPG ruleset for the Naruto setting created by /tg/, and playtested in the previous Five Nations quests.
>>31421010>> Bug off and go to that lot that you've been training in.
>>31421095Shitting in our jumpsuit would be an excellent excuse to get rid of the fucking jumpsuit. I throw my support behind any course of action that removes jumpsuit.
>>31421229Keep the clan markings, gotta represent.
>>31421267We can get something reasonable that isn't an orange jumpsuit with clan markings if we really want to.
>>31421229for both aesthetic and practical (mainly camouflage) reasons i have to agree

>>31421447One piece has too many fucking chapters. I can't even remember what happened last arc.
>>31421530Last Arc was Punk Hazard. THey found an island with illegal experimentations ongoing that included drugging children and tampering with their growth hormones.They captured the culprit Caeser who had also been making SMILE which are fake Devil fruits that are formed through bombs that are basically war-crime gas that kills everyone it touches.... I like One Piece.
>>31421452Will training remove jumpsuit?
>>31421573You're such a god damn nerd, professor.It's okay, I love you for it.
>>31421573stop lecturing and get writing please
You bug out of this place. You don't really want to see what happens next. There's no need to because you've seen it before.The parents come up and they congratulate their kids on a job well done. Some of them talk about how they're gonna make their favorite food or taken them out to dinner, or even just pat them on the back.Hell, you're not even sure that you passed yet since you left in such a rush.Well, no sense in lingering anyway.You head for the lot, lost in your thoughts as you think back to when you were younger. Your asshole dad would be asleep on the couch of your apartment some days. That was a good day. Other times, he'd actually be awake and go on about how much he loved your mother.Sometimes when he was really drunk he'd throw the bottle of sake at you and tell you to go out and buy more.You were almost glad when he died. He was never a real dad anyway. Just a stupid man with a stupid face that people see when they look at you and your blonde hair.You tuck at your messy locks, clenching your teeth in frustration before throwing a fist at a fence.“Ow!” You hear the fence talk.“What the...” You double-take, seeing that this section of the fence has its grain going the wrong way.“I- I mean... I'm a fence! Haha! I'm a fence!” You see the corners of a sheet being held up.You stare at the fence, squinting your eyes and opening up your nostrils as you stare at the camo-sheet with scrutiny.You see sweat start to bead and roll off of it.> “Okay, yeah, it's a fence. Whatever.” Walk off, ignoring the kid.> Kick the fence,” Yeah, I really freaking hate fences today. Sorry fence.”> Ignore the crazy behind the curtain.> (Other)

>>31421693>[x] “Okay, yeah, it's a fence. Whatever.” Walk off, ignoring the kid.Can we actually train yet? I wanted to do 10000 pushups, run 40 miles, and then climb the mountain with no safety gear.

>>31421827Fuck Konohomaru. I'd rather go teabag my fishtank full of very bitey fish than deal with that shit.
>>31421848...you secretly have dreams of Kisame nibbling your balls?
“Okay, yeah, it's a fence. Whatever.” You walk off, ignoring the fence. You've got better things to do than-“Ah-hah! You fell for it! Hidden Shuriken!” You hear the kid drop the tarp and turn only to see shuriken thrown at you, and instant flashbacks of your bullies.>Roll to dodge... 1d100 30 or lower.> Beat the shit out of this stupid kid!> Walk away again.> Stare the kid down.> (Other)

You use your ninja-like reflexes to dodge the shuriken rather less than gracefully as you leap out of the way, tumbling over the dusty road and breathing hard from the sudden surprise.You stare at the kid for a moment before turning your back on him,”Screw off kid. I'm in a bad mood.”“B-but... I'm the Hokage's grandson...” He whimpers like a spoiled brat, you bet he's even making some stupid puppy-dog eyes.“Act like I give a damn.” You say and leap away into the upper buildings, heading to the lot, landing and finally patting the dust off of you until you realize that it'll just get dirty again anyway.

>>31422136Over 9000 pushups go!IT'S THE SPRINGTIME OF OUR YOUTH!
>>31422213Not necessarily. I was going to bring in the whole element BS early like it should've been though it's not "golden" rules.Training it will be held off for a bit until you get better at chakra control and general ninjutsu.I do this so you guys can pick up what element you believe would suit your style.Or you know, you could give elements the bird and go with learning lotus, gates, and taijutusu.Initial learning and mastery will not be necessarily easy to come by.
>>31422288Personally, I wanna go Earth style. I love that shit.
>>31422288Can we roll for our elemental chakra? So it's not a complete shitstorm?
>>31422343I love you so much.Yes.But not right now.
>>31422288I agree with >>31422343Just roll for it. Make it so hitting the critical range re-rolls with 2 elements.
>>31422317Earth jutsu are pretty fucking awesome like that one kakuzu used to make his skin impenetrable, great shit that one
>>31422351this sounds good
>>31422350>>31422351Basically all that needs to be written is a scene with the chakra litmus, then roll, voila.
>>31422288I'm hoping for wind, combine that with a sword or a kusari-gama and we're in business, we can start cutting everything in half.
>>31422350>>31422351Roll 1d100, take the first roll. Or just do it yourself, Dran.Reroll 2d100 1-5Fire 6-24Wind 25-43Lightning 44-62Earth 63-81Water 82-100
>>31422136See if we can harness additional chakra through our ridiculous levels of MAD. Use our anger as a motivation to train until we drop. Once our anger has run it's course, let's head down to the river, sit near a waterfall, take a bath and relax, while concentrating on chakra. We're not completely stupid, we just lack control.
You buckle down, resolving to do one thousand thousand push ups as you get down onto your hands and knees, feeling the dust of the village slip through your fingers, stinging your scraped knuckles.It hurts, and it makes you flinch a bit,”Atch, atch...” But you have something bigger things to think about.“One Thousand, I'll do a thousand. Even if I my arms fall off!”You grit your teeth and start pushing, working up to your previous record of fifty and then some, and starting to struggle from there as the sweat starts to drip from your brow.Thinking back to Mizuki's stupid mug gets you mad, and you decide that you need to keep this up.>Grit roll. 1D100 3 rolls. 15 or below.You feel like something's watching you and you glance around amidst your struggle to keep your arms pushed out.> Focus on training.> Call out the person watching you. (It's that stupid kid, isn't it?)
>>31422356I fucking know, right?Why do we have to limit ourselves? A good ninja expands his repertoire, not limit himself to one or two types of elements like some sort of children's game.

I've been working on my Best Sensei collection.
>>31422512Yeah I'd say this is a good line.
>>31422555But the only other ninja who DON'T have some kind of shortcut are Sakura and Ten Ten.And look what happened to them.
>>31422463>[x] Focus on training.
>>31422573No, even Sakura has a shortcut as of the latest developments in the series. Turns out she was actually holding back this whole time because she was constantly focusing on developing her chakra instead of using it. Now she's unleashed it and has instantly skyrocketed to Tsunade's level.
>>31422603What's the point in revealing that now? Madara's the only bad guy left, and he's immune to punching.
>>31422573>>31422555I wanted to say this, actuallyI am okay with the power levels remaining somewhat the same, but it seems kinda bullshit that almost EVERYONE has some kinda bullshit that makes them automatically better.I think some of those bullshit bloodline things should have downsides.

You keep yourself focused on the task at hand, forcing your arms to keep moving against their will even if you need to expunge a little bit of chakra to keep them active. Those guys were talking about eight hundred. You can do that too! You can!You start approaching hundred and you feel your body start to wane as you feel the sweat build within your face. This is harder than you thought... It's hard but...You see a spot on the ground turn wet and you stare at it for a moment, thinking about those Bushy-brows guys. They practically wet the grounds with how much they were sweating. If you're doing that- then you know you're working hard.One day, you'll punch that Mizuki sensei square in the jaw.One day, you'll make that Neji kid eat the fact that he called you garbage.One day... One day. One day you'll... You'll...You pause, sweat dripping from your brow as you breath heavily, staring at the wet spot that you've created. Then it dawns on you, having been so lost in thought.“Aw crap! I lost count!” You get up with your arms like noodles and fall onto your ass, catching your breath.“What number was I on? I last remember one hundred and thirty...” You think aloud.You hear some movement from somewhere. But other than that, whoever's watching you has concealed their presence well.> Whatever, continue onto situps and the rest. Finish with a run.> Take a break.> Call 'em out. (You swear if it's that stupid kid.)> (Other)
>>31422624No he isn't. Kishimoto's dragged the final battle out for over a hundred chapters, now. First it was Obito (oh yeah, Tobi was actually Obito, just like all the dumb fan theories said. It turns out that ALL of the dumb fan theories are true. Except for the one about Naruto being the reincarnation of the Sage of Six Paths. He's actually the reincarnation of the Sage of Six Paths' SON. Because that's so much less special snowflaky.) Anyway, where was I? Right, it started with Obito chaining the Tailed Beasts to his will and fighting Naruto and Bee with them. They defeated them, then it was Gai, Kakashi and Naruto against Obito directly. Then the real Madara joined the fight, and they fused the Tailed Beasts together into an incomplete Ten-Tails. The entire ninja army showed up to fight it, and broke the villains' control over it. So it went berserk and unleashed a horde of demons. Then the previous Hokages came back to life in an extremely contrived manner and joined the fight. They defeated the Ten-Tails, then Obito absorbed it and became a super-jinchuriki. They fought him and took him out after Sasuke and Naruto merged the Susano with the Nine-Tails, extracting the Ten-Tails and separating it back into the nine demons. Then Madara ate the demons, including ripping the ones in Naruto and Killer Bee out. Madara kills Sasuke and Naruto, Gai holds him off while deus ex machinae revive them and they spend time talking to the Sage of Six Paths and learn that they're the reincarnations of his sons, and that's what that bullshit "child of prophecy" thing was. That brings us up to the present. Oh, and add in about six utterly pointless multi-chapter flashbacks that had no relevance to the conflict at all. It's such bullshit. I totally understand the idea of this quest being a palette cleanser from the actual series' garbage.

>>31422832Oh, I grew out of that phase too. The only reason I know all that stuff is because I'm a masochist, and actively enjoy reading things I hate. There's a bizarre joy to be found in seeing just what contrived bullshit the author is going to pull next. The way I see it, reading Naruto gives me something harmless to release my anger on. I read it, shout "WHAT IS THIS BULLSHIT?" and go on with the rest of my day.

But nope, it did nothing of any real importance, except nearly kill Gai and give Naruto an opportunity to show off by healing him.
>>31422916If he'd taken Madara's head off instead of doing the ribshot thing and cockblocked Narubooboo from being the hero, that would have been the best conclusion to the fight ever.

Rolled 6>>31422916Man, I remember watching the chuunin exams and Sasuke retrieval arcs as a kid (quit before Sasuke went full angst and fought Naruto though) and thinking that they were awesome.I liked the series a lot more when it was grittier, full of dirty tactics and actual ninja techniques.

>>31422988>>31422990SHITDAMN YOU RNGBut seriously, Naruto should get Wind....or Lightning. Fuck Fire though. Water is eh and Earth is too fucking common.
Whew. Finally got the time to check up on things. Seems like things have progressed well enough.>>31422879I think a lot of us understand the desire to push on through and finally reach the end of something that started out well enough, but became terrible as it went on. I think I've only ever dropped a couple of stories without bothering to see it through to the end myself.
>>31423026water is limited by location (lakes, rivers, rainfall etc) or having the fuck huge chakra reserves like fishman aka Best akatsuki member.but hidden mist jutsu would be a nice trick to learn...
>>31423059>>31423026Remember to think outside of the elements anon. There's a lot of other jutsu.
>>31423059If we end up with water I'm going to fucking rage. Every single one of this QMs quests have a water mc
>>31423059Especially because it stops the Sharingan cold. Or it does for weaker users of it. I'm sure if we pulled it on Itachi or Madara they'd just laugh at us, but at the very least it would let us fuck up Sasuke if he ever gets too annoying. Which he will. Because he's Sasuke. Sure, without Naruto having a terrifyingly quick rate of advancement he's not going to get all huffy, but that just means he'll stay arrogant the whole time.
>>31423079I know, right?As I said before. A good ninja EXPANDS his jutsu. So we'll take whatever works well with whatever we end up getting good at.Still want that earth jutsu that lets you move underground tho.
>>31423079Can we create our own kind?
>>31423026Lightning barely gets much notice, so that gets my vote. That is, if we ever become dependent on ninjutsu skills. I'd like to give taijutsu a bigger spotlight in this iteration.>>31423082Except Akuma quest. That was more fire. Wind too, if you consider the smog, although it became more of a shadow thing. And I guess the item creation could be considered earth.It is strange, though, that AoPH and Over(human) both have water related MCs.
>>31423119He meant the previous Five Nations quests I'm pretty sure.
>>31423059so, a jack of all trades?not let be limited by the circlejerk and take what is best for our situation?Also, do a five min chakra practice before bed time everyday.
>>31423102I say that we become a MOLE NINJA
>>31423082Water's cool man.Ceru wasn't my fault and Asher just happened to be the first power I could think of with opportunities for expansion.
>>31423079Are there? Are there really? Because we don't see a lot of them. It seems like any non-elemental jutsu worth a damn is either a clan-specific technique or a sealing technique. Some barrier stuff, too, though one could argue that falls under sealing. Point is, if we're going to think outside the elemental box, we're going to have to invent our own techniques from scratch. Because we're sure as hell not finding anything worth while in any publicly-available archives.
>>31423146Would summoning meteors be an earth jutsu?
>>31423079>>31423146Mm. Well, Dranule will probably offer us up a selection of moves (or sets of moves, maybe) when the time comes.>>31423163Probably, depending on how it's done.
>>31423133Jack of all Trades, honestly, should be what all ninja try for. I mean, sure, we're gonna have some specialized stuff, but EVERYONE should have at least one of every jutsu to suit them.All ninja can use tai, and should. Physically healthy is good (Fuck you, Choji)Nin is good for most battle situations, but is also the most varied.Gen is not used enough, but is the most 'ninjay' of the jutsu. Every stealthy ninja needs some of this.I won't even bother seperating it by elements. We just need a little of all of them, I think.But that's all in the future.Right now, chakra training, morning day and night.Before bed, before breakfast, and before lunch. Always.
>>31423102You don't need earth charka for the digging tunnels.Naruto did it (By fucking up his hands) and Kakashi does it without earth charka.
>>31423163Contract with meteors? Also, that'd be Rinnegan.
>>31423163That's a space Jutsu, son.That shit exists.
Rolled 87why so much hate against fire?Shooting fire is in mind cool, if bit cliche. IT would be hilarious, if we beat sasuke or other fuckers in this village at their own game trough hard work and grit
>>31423169Eh, fair enough. But the point remains, all jutsu is handy in it's own way.
>>31423168Absolutely.First is to master Charka. If we run out, we run and train our bodies until our charka is back. Repeat forever. Even if you reach mastery or if you die, continue training.>>31423177I FORGOT.SEALS ARE THE FUCKING SHIT. We should know the basics. We can do explosive tags, hammer space tags, tracking tags, commincation tags. It be fucking sweet.
Question.For combat, would you guys prefer dice?Or would you rather me do background nonsense like on Over(Human)Limit?
>>31423179Fuck Fire. EVERYONE on the freaking village got fire.>>31423201Eh. A bit of A and a bit of B.Use dice but our stats and our choices should influence the DC.
>>31423201Eh. Background is preferred for me. Tg dice can't be trusted, and I trust a good GM to fudge dice when necessary.Up to you, though.
>>31423201Use dice but make background nonsense determine what the dice mean.
>>31423212>I trust a good GM to fudge dice when necessary.This is exactly why I like background nonsense>>31423201
Rolled 84>>31423201I think Dice is best for this site. It's simple, fast and most guys are used to it.Then again I never read Overhuman limit guest
>>31423201Dice, but you can wait until the character actually starts attaining more options to use in combat and becomes more capable.
Rolled 75>>31423211Thats why it would be hilarious that failure kid beat at their own game.Fuck yeah FIIIIIIIIIIIIIRE
>>31423211>Fire is overusedAgreed. But you have to admit it has applications. Namely hurting people. A lot.good to keep it in our jutsu bucket, but not to lean on it super hard.
>>31423247Seriously though, no fire. >>31423265Fire jutsu is great to have but having fire element charka fucking sucks.
>>31423223It'd basically be you guys arranging a strategy and then me rolling dice off-site to determine what accomplishes what and what gains edge.It eases me needing to spit back to you guys modifiers for strategy and allows me to make some modifications to spice up the combat.>>31423265What messes with my head?They have explosive tags. What's the point of fire?
>>31423201I'd prefer background nonsense
>>31423201>>31423245Makes sense.Some anons can't handle failure and would like to give up control of success and failure to you completely, but the problem in dice has always been on how the QM actually uses them. Some QMs, for example, have no sense of balance in terms of what players get for a success and what they get for a failure. They punish failures harder and give very little to reward a successful roll. Sometimes too much hinges on how a single dice roll turns out.
>>31423271>What's the pointEh, there are other uses for fire jutsu beyond blowing stuff up.Can't think of any at the moment (I didn't follow Naruto super late) but it definitely would have uses.
>>31423201Dice until we start getting more options and Naruto stops fighting with sheer grit and luck.Once you have a set of abilities that have tactical uses, proper use of those abilities is much more important than any dice roll.
>>31423271Well, maybe if they run out of explosive tags or they don't have any.Besides, spitting fire is pretty fucking cool.
>>31423281That's kind of what I was thinking of. Good show!
You sit there for a moment, debating on whether to keep going while your arms can barely move after however many reps you did while focusing on your rage.The feeling of being watched starts to wear down on you between your fatigue and anger.You yell out, “Who's out there?!” You hear a definitive “Eep!” before you carry on, “You that brat from before? I swear I'm not gonna let you off easy this time!”Your shouting is met without another response for the moment as you wait. “Could you at least tell me what number I was on?”“T-two hundred and fifty six.” You hear a girl call out from somewhere.Nodding, you smile just a bit to yourself, though you're still a bit frustrated,”I've got a long way to go before I catch up to those guys...” You mutter aloud, but mostly to yourself.“Thanks.”You set down onto your back,”Just means I need to aim for three hundred tomorrow, and three hundred and fifty the next day, and then more!” You bend your knees, and put your hands behind your head,”And for now- five hundred sit ups!”You flex your abs, keeping at it until the burn starts to set in. You mostly ignore the girl watching you from afar, yet reminded now and then that she's there when you lose count of your repetitions. Heck, it's almost like you've got a spotter.You continue on until you can barely move, and make to get up for the part where you run for forty miles, only you find that you can't get up and your stomach's completely cramped.“Ooo, atch, atch...” You wheeze with a painful smile on your face.

Or rather, there are few people I trust to perform that sort of system.Given your track record in previous quests, I don't think I can trust you to do this sort of thing. And I'm not talking about AoPH (although the same problem applies there), but with Akuma Quest. You have a tendency to 'spice things up' by making rolls sure to fail before using deus ex machina to salvage the situation somehow. That's heavy handed shlock that makes me roll my eyes whenever I see a QM do it.

>>31423570>tfw you remember its not first five.I don't like that feel
>>31423589Naruto doesn't know about it. tfw you've got more in common with Sasuke.
>>31423595It's a feel most foul, friend. Most foul indeed.
>>31423524There are...SOME tacticians in /tg/. Perhaps not many in the quests you run.And it's tacticians you're looking for.
>>31423607Is it possible he will become a bro?Almost definitely not. But hey. What're you gonna do.
>>31423519I know this is WAY getting ahead of myself, but if we get access to them I think we should try to get the slug summoning contract. The abilities Katsuyu demonstrates would be great for underhanded fighting.>Can split into multiple bodies, all of them psychically linked>Transforms into a squishy layer of ablative armor>Spits motherfucking ACIDWe can do some nasty shit with that. And it means we'll get to hang out with angry drunk Tsunade, who since we don't have Shonen Protagonist powers we'll actually get to put effort and character building into getting her to clean her act up.
>>31423607...I don't really see how the entire Uchiha clan being massacred would escape us. They're a pretty big deal, aren't they?Then again, we ARE the Dead Last...
Rolled 9>>31423607>Thats good though. That the uchiha isnt completely shit.
>>31423618Fuck Slugs.Get Frog. Nature Charka is godlike and the Frog summon is good enough to fight off Tail beasts. Not defeat them but good enough to fight them equaly for atime.>>31423629For fuck sake naruto.or else it being classified.
>>31423610No. I know what I said.Strategian. A maker of strategies. It's a reference to a path I'd like to see, but likely won't.>>31423618>TsunadeYou better be a go-getter to get a place on that little trip.>>31423639>Get Frog. Nature Charka is godlikeYou need massive katra!(Chakra) for sage.
>>31423381>>31423401Well, he's moving on to odds stacking, if the Nar-kage battle in AoPH is of any indication, although his use of deus ex machina in battle still applies (Kurojo applying his stun move and us suddenly getting a much larger bonus to our dice right after).He has a penchant of making sure the character is barely prepared for a major fight (the Alexis fight, the Hypno fight, and the Nar-kage fight) too by keeping our stamina (which decides what moves we can use) as low as possible to limit what we can do. It showed up with Kurojo too, since just traveling to the mountain cost 35% stamina.>>31423479That's not really the issue I have, Prof. You have a penchant for forcing difficult circumstances. In AoPH and in Akuma Quest. I know that you think it's cool to have the protag rise up from a dire situation; you've said so yourself in the QTGs. But it's not when you need to contrive the situation into happening in the first place.Dice rolls in the open don't matter at all if you're really intent on stacking the odds and forcibly limiting the options people can take, but it does help to point out when a QM is trying to force certain events to happen.There's nothing wrong with introducing the players to a difficult opponent. That's exciting and fun. And there's nothing wrong with stacking the odds, like you did at the end of the Nar-kage fight in AoPH, to help a victory come out. The story is more important and if it seems appropriate for the situation, then it's not an asspull. The problem comes when you forcibly put the players into a dire situation, introduce a difficult opponent, and make it so that the only way to come out is to introduce a deus ex machina and/or rearrange the odds to come out in the players' favor if a dice roll is needed. You did this much too often in Akuma Quest, you know.
>>31420574Dude, the only reason why Naruto had trouble with the regular Cloning Jutsu is because he had too much Chakra, making Charkra control really hard. It was like he tried to fill a glass of water by pouring a lake inside.Fuck Konoha. Let's go on the road.
>>31423647>Naruto, the strategistPfff, hahaha. Wouldn't THAT be ironic?
>>31423647>Strategian. A maker of strategies>getting that far in this questthat's a little bit ambitious considering that you're juggling 3 quests. Just...don't forget to have a life.
See, the problem with arguing over what summoning contract to sign is that it implies that any of the Sannin will bother to train some pissant traitor-child.Jiraiya bothered because he was the worst godfather ever, and Tsunade only bothered because she was horribly traumatized and Canon Naruto was like a dumb blonde fusion of everyone she ever loved.
>>31423676Touche.We will MAKE ourselves important enough for that!Ya know. If we don't die.
>>31423676So we go to Orochimaru and become a cool snake master. He and Kabuto were always very charismatic.
>>31423676Shit. you right.Oh well. Fuck summons.
>>31423689I don't get the reference.
>>31423692That would led to us getting killed.or becoming our father.Which is bad.
>>31423676Oh, I recognize it's incredibly unlikely. Just saying, it would be nice. Maybe we can make our own summoning contract, instead? Isn't the explanation of how Jiraiya got his that he used the Summoning Jutsu without having signed a contract, and got randomly flung to one of the extra-dimensional homes of the summons? And then he just was so stubborn that the toads agreed to train him just to get rid of him?
>>31423714>Reverse Summoning.I will give you guys the opportunity.But you need to have the potential.
>>31423692Nah man. Guy sensei is best sensei.
>>31423706>or becoming our father.>badMaybe. Maybe not. Depends on why.Because, honestly, fuck Konoha.
>>31423689I would rather NOT die by anti-climactic gunshot, thank you very much.
>>31423618>>31423639While I do like the Slug idea, I think the Frogs' attitude would suit us better. We probably won't be summoning anything anytime soon though. In the meantime...>mfw I look forward to the day we change the title to Ultimate Hoodlum Ninja Quest
>>31423729Maybe Gai could teach us to summon turtles
>>31423737No Anon.Be the sword.Be the Green Sword.
>>31423714AHAHHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHNo. We need to get an animal leader or clan to sign up assuming we are allow to leave.Fuck ANYTHING like summoning. It a waste of time. We don't got the charka or the talent or the ability to use them right now.REMINDER TO ALL YOU FUCKS THAT WE ARE GENIN.I bet we don't have a full one on all our stat. We like .75 or .80 right now.We are dead last. and if we don't change that, we die first.
>>31423736Our father was a drunk failure who got everyone killed on his last mission. Let's NOT do that.
>>31423748Anon...shut up. You're being really obnoxious.People are just making plans. No one needs you to hammer in the premise of this quest because no one here has any difficulties in reading. It's not wrong at all to talk about things to aspire and build towards.
>>31423748I'm talking about in the future. Like I said, I know I'm getting ahead of myself. I'm just brainstorming now for potential things to do later.
>>31423747I thought you wanted to be the strategist?
You take in a deep and painful breath with your abs screaming back at you as you try righting yourself, trying to get back on your legs, yet finding your core refusing to respond as you soon give up in a near puddle of your own sweat, huffing and puffing.“H-hey. I need some... I need some help. Can't get up...” You gasp in the dirt, not hearing a response at first.Then she steps out from her hiding place behind the base of a street-light. You're too busy looking at the blue sky to really see her face as she walks up to you with timid, half-hearted steps. It's almost like she's trembling towards you.You see a hand shoved in your face and you lift a wobbling arm to take it, getting pulled up to your feet, a bit too quickly actually, leaving you nearly stumbling into your saviour when you see them.Two large, pupil-less white eyes staring into yours.You start to swing your fist, as tired as your arm is.> Carry through. Screw Neji and everything he stands for!> Stop short, wait, what?> Redirect fist into your own face.> (Other)

>>31423848Of course.Simply explain we thought she was someone else.
>>31423848>awkwardWell, really, Naruto and Hinata were both pretty much the most socially awkward characters of the story in the beginning, although for different reasons.
>>31423848oh god hinata is about to reflexively punch our light out and/or faint

>>31423863>>31423869Hinata herself is the embodiment of awkwardness when she talks to her husbando
>>31423848"I'm so sorry. I thought you were that Neji jerk at first. H-heh...">>31423873What the fuck even was her deal? I still have no idea what she was good at.
>>31423892She is indeed best girl.Not that she has a ton of stiff competition, honestly, but hey.
>>31423898Genjutsu and tracking. But since genjutsu gets majorly neglected and tracking never really was relevant, she came across as useless.
>>31423898She was a genjutsu specialist. Damn good too (apparently), but she still got her ass handed to her by Itachi.
>>31423873Un no.Team would still be canon due to how teams are formed.Naruto is dead last and dead last go with the best shinobi and best kunochi.
>>31423913...Didn't everyone?Because he was basically the stick in the dick measuring contest that was the second part of the anime
You catch yourself mid swing, realizing that this isn't the same bastard that was calling you trash the other day, and yet... Your tired body seizes up, forcing you to stumble forward into the girl as she screams out, trying to hold up your body as you fall like the leaning tower of Pisa. Methodically, and in slow motion with some resistance right up until she slips in your sweat puddle.> Put your arms around her to cushion her fall.> Use her as a cushion for your fall.*It's likely too late for her to notice this action. The choice is a matter of character.
>>31423898Genjutsu, I think.>>31423892Who knows how Hinata feels about Naruto, though? She liked him in the story because he was pretty boisterous. Here, Naruto seems much more solemn. Although, I guess if our choices have had any effect on Naruto's past retroactively, he could be seen in the same light as Lee, I suppose; someone working hard from a limited position.
>>31423928>[X] Put your arms around her to cushion her fall.

>>31423997Merge it with the clone jutsu (not shadow clones, unfortunately, so there's no tactile element) and produce a bunch of sttractive men and women dressed up for a formal function, but in like...REALLY slutty parodies of formal wear.
But really though, are we ACTUALLY mad enough to lash out at every Hyuuga kid we see? The hell man, I know we were really, justifiably, angry, but I thought we were trying to be a good kid.
>>31424040GentleMAN jutsu, anon.
>>31423997The Sexy Jutsu clones are in Maid uniforms or gorgeous periodes dress. Gentleman no Jutsu is just an older Naruto with a well-tailored suit, a monocle, a top hat and a moustache the moustache god would kill for.Bonus poit if classical music is include
>>31424043Eh, it seemed more like a snap decision to me. If Naruto has one problem, it's he naturally makes snap decisions.
>>31424043I assume it happened because you guys voted to punch that other guy earlier. You're hot tempered today.
>>31424056I like thisFunding this jutsu
Feeling immediately at fault, you wrap your arms around the pale girl, apologizing immediately in your head. Not for the impromptu hug, but for this situation being your fault.You swing her around, to take the blow, falling back on your back and getting winded from the shock.The girl trembles, staring at you as you open your eyes. Her face flushed a beet red,”N-N-N...” She passes out on top of you, her spirit leaving her body with a final breath, waving the white flag of surrender.Well then... You still can't get up, and now you have a girl with eyes like Neji's passed out on top of you.If this lot weren't empty around this time of day, you'd probably be getting some really weird looks if anyone saw this.Moving carefully after a fewminutes of rest, you get her off of you and painfully get up, looking down at the girl.Aw heck, you can't just leave her here...> Sit her up on a bench and wait till she wakes up.> Actually, yes you can. She's related to Neji. She'll be fine when she wakes up.> (Other)
>>31423928>Put your arms around her to cushion her fall.We can take a bruise.
>>31424069This seems logical. We should try and calm down, or our anger is gonna be a real problem.
>>31424074> Sit her up on a bench and wait till she wakes up.The second option would be like Naruto accepting that it's okay for him to be treated the way he is just because he's related to his dad.

>>31424176I think this Naruto wears orange not because he likes it, but because he can't afford anything other than thrift-store clothing and there's not much available that isn't going to be super-gaudy.
>>31424189He wears orange because he fucking love orange and orange stands the fuck out.This is important due to naruto being ignored for being the fox bearer but not this naruto.He wears orange cause he don't got a choice for being the son of a traitor.
>>31424189I think he probably started wearing it because he had to, but i'm sure he realised that it pretty much forced other to acknowledge him, and that was something Canon!Naruto desperatly carved. Plus, changing the color of clothes isn't that hard, even when you have little money: whasing his orange clothes with dark ones would have made them significantly darker.Sorry for my spelling mistakes, I realise it's hard to read.

Without further delay, you drag the girl over to the bench even as your body screams at you for rest. You refuse though. It's your body and you'll tell it when to rest. And it'll happen after this girl is sitting up on a bench instead of the ground.You prop her up and carefully pat some dust off of her before sitting down yourself, feeling some blush make its way across your own face.What's with this stupid girl anyway? Watching you for a damn hour and finally passing out when you see her?You sigh, letting it go a bit to look at her as she breathes gently in her unconscious state.Looking at her now though... You've seen her before.You can't remember her name, but she goes to school with you. She's one of the ones that never bullied you.But she never tried to stop them either.You clench your teeth. Another person that you'd like to sock. Though she did try to help you just now...What's her deal?Isn't she related to Neji?But. If you hated her for Neji, it'd be the same as those assholes with your dad right? It's not your fault that he was a scumbag. It's not this girl's fault that she knows Neji.You start to think about the future a bit, about what you want to do. Once upon a time, you may have wanted to be Hokage...

>>31424438> Become stronger than anyone, God, or Death.BLACKSTAR!!!!!>>31424445Well, more retarded. But less retarded in concept and execution. He was stylin'.
>>31424429Yeah, see, spiteful idealist naruto sounds pretty sweet.>>31424438Good, Konoha sucks.Honestly, the entire Ninja system is horribly flawed and monstrous. We need to make an entire new class of chakra users with morals that don't revolve around being mercenary killers.

>>31424463>Tied underwearI knew Tsubaki was best girl.
> Become stronger than anyone, God, or Death.> Learn more and tear this place apart someday, fuck the system.As long as we learn more somewhere else...
>>31424438> Become stronger than anyone, God, or Death.Oh god. Blackstar just mixes in so well with our desire to improve taijutsu and ninjutsu skills.
>>31424438>Become Hokage.Let's be honest, the other two things are actually much less realistic.
>>31424438>[X] Become stronger than anyone, God, or Death.Hokage and the system is too much like canon naruto.We are different from the very core than naruto.We gain ambition from Gai.now let go.

>>31424474what makes this hinata?
>>31424477she's also the horniest confirmed in canon, in the manga
>>31424485Don't let reality tell you what is realistic, dude. Most of the time, it doesn't know what it's talking about.Anyone else for tyrying to learn stuff from self-help books?
>>31424422>>31424429>>31424447>>31424473Thanks, guys, I'm glad you like my idea. My hope is that, should we ever become strong enough that we're up against the likes of Pain, we can refute his philosophy with our own actions. He can talk about how the world is suffering and only by experiencing it and bonding together over shared tragedy can mankind know peace. And then we show how he's wrong. How the world can be made better. Despots slain, plagues cured, the starving fed. Everywhere we go we'll build infrastructure, bring peace, teach the weak to be strong, and leave behind a place that can stand for itself without fear of its neighbors. Because that's the proper response to all the petty nihilism of the Akatsuki. It would make for such a more satisfying conflict than the canon one.
>>31424498Reminder that death god exist and the god human that is the sixth sage path.
>>31424490Tsubaki(If you know what I mean >>31424497)Nah but seriously, Tsubaki
>>31424501I can dig it.Let's become stronger then god and death, and then use that power to follow such philosophy.
>>31424501canon Naruto is already a messiah figure
>>31424490Tsubaki wouldn't really fit Hinata, either in terms of personality or in her function within the story. Hinata reflects the graceful, pinpoint archetype, but Tsubaki has always been more of a supporter and power boost to Blackstar's own abilities.
>>31424501Fuck World peace.There will never be such a thing.So long as there people, so long as there something worth fighting for, no matter how "good" or "evil" it is, there will no such thing as peace.
>>31424351So we're inheriting the Will of Fire after all, eh? Just on a larger scale. Sarutobi would be proud.>>31424438I vote we become the strongest so that we can be the change we want. Let's just avoid going full Black Star though?
....What is even the religion in Naruto? Because I think it's a little weird for a kid to suddenly go "I AM GONNA BE STRONGER THEN BUDDA" or whatever out of no where, where as in Soul Eater, they were actual things to point at.
>>31424521He's a straw messiah, though. He doesn't actually make the world better. He's just really inspirational. I want to live up to the messianic legend, without resorting to the shortcut of being the golden child. We'll still be a cynical bastard, just one that would rather face the world as it is and fix it rather than deny mankind's flaws.
>>31424534This, so much.
>>31424530Well if she gets gud she'll generate crazy chakra shields, hand lazers, and still has gentle fist for that absolutely broken teardown.>>31424536Sage of six, father of katra!(Chakra.)
Rolled 69>>31424536Stronger than the Sage of SIx Path?Stronger than the Ten Tail?Stronger than Shinigami?
>>31424536There's that Death god thing the hokages and oro's arms hung out in for awhile
>>31424550>Well if she gets gud she'll generate crazy chakra shields, hand lazers, and still has gentle fist for that absolutely broken teardown.Oh yeah, definitely. I'm just saying that it wouldn't really correlate that well with Tsubaki's own character.>>31424536I suppose the Tailed Beasts could fit that, considering that the 10 Tailed Beast/Tree was the origin of all chakra in the story.
>>31424553>>31424553Pretty fucking much.
>>31424556True. The God of Death objectively exists as something to measure ourselves against. Though it's not clear if he's the god in charge of death or just a god with power over death. Subtle but important distinction.
>>31424533Everyone knows that, anon; it's ridiculous to believe that anyone could think such a thing is possible. But why not try?Even knowing that it won't work, even knowing that not every single will be satisfied with what you have created and be happy with what you've tried to do, you've made a difference. You've minimized the suffering, created an organized system where the needs of many are met and the threats from invasion and internal conflicts are nigh non-existent.Not a utopia, but a world where anyone can find happiness and satisfaction.
>>31424550Anon, that fucking crazy.Lasers is too much. Shields and sending beasts of charka maybe but that like 3 years from now asumming she still alive.
>>31424573You have my support, anon.
>>31424567All we really see him do is swallow/trap souls.
>>31424575No, she has hand lasers pretty early on. They don't have very long range, though. Perhaps "beam sabers" would be a better way to put it.
>>31424579True. Now that I think about it, he might not actually exist. Like the "Death God" summoned by that jutsu is just a visual effect, or some such. It's not like it's expressed any sort of personality.
>>31424589Hey man.Fuck Not-America
>>31424602Shut up, you dirty 11.
Right now, we should focus on surpassing all of existence.There people looking for revenge like sasuke or or world peace like pain or the third hokage.What I want is someone different. An Person who wants power. Craves it.The clone henge was naruto first taste of success after the shit of not passing the last 2 times.Naruto wants more power. Power for the sake of power isnt' so bad you know.
>>31424579Perhaps he's just a Chakra construct or a summon with a fancy name. Perhaps the Jutsu actually conjure the physical manifestation of Death. In any case, he got a blade that cut souls, so he's probably a guy we should respect the strenght of.
>>31424622Lucifer plz go
>>31424622It's not, but it generally leads to an evil type of mind set. Or if not, a very very selfish one. And I don't think this Naruto is gonna be selfish. He just is tired of all the constant bullshit he's been forced to deal with. Wants to succeed and prove to anyone without a shadow of a doubt, he is the best, and earn respect for that.Doesn't mean he doesn't care for some people. Doesn't mean he is Sasuke emo. And certainly doesn't mean he'll ignore those who actually DON'T treat him like shit.
>>31424589Not really what I was going for, but I can see it. The changes one man can make rely solely on how far he is willing to go to make them a reality.I believe in the world Lelouch did, but I find the paths one should take are akin to that of Big Boss; if you have a goal, everything is expendable if it means making it a reality.
>>31424622Power is a tool, not a motivation. Power allow you to do things, so it is pointless without you don't want to do things with it.>>31424573Yeah, let's be happy.
I like the idea of a darker Naruto who's really only out to gain power. Becoming another messiah is just the same Naruto without the special fox powers which in my opinion is really boring. We don't have to be stupid evil or even evil at all, but going around and white knighting the world has been done to death so much that the power freak is less cliche.
>>31424687Eh, I don't really like the power freak idea. It feels incredibly shallow, and makes for quite the boring character, in my mind.
>>31424687I agree. We don't need to be an evil monster, but we shouldn't be messiah #57. Let's live for our own sake, not for peace, or our 'precious people'. That doesn't mean we can't love or have friends or allies or what have you, but ultimately, what we've learned is that you'll get nothing unless you do it yourself.
>>31424687I figure that we're not above minor setbacks in our quest for power in order to help people, but power is still our primary goal.Like just become stronger and see where that gets us.
>>31424699In all fairness, we're like... 12 right now. Makes sense to be shallow at this point in time.
>>31424687a double messiah burger, hold the shonen deus ex does sound pretty boring imo.lets just focus on gittin' gud before we commit to something else.
Now that we're on the subject of philosophy, do you guys want to try to convince Hinata when she wakes up? I know Naruto isn't exactly a master of rethoric right now, but she is sensible to his own brand of charisma.Or perhaps we should just ask her what do she want. In general. What does she want in life? What does she want for her life to be?
Strong. To be strong. You tighten your fists with your resolve, looking down at your split knuckles covered in dirt. Your body aches. Your body's sore. Your knuckles bleed. Your knuckles sting.You feel good about it though. It FEELS good. Your knuckles will will and get stronger. Your body will stop aching and you'll get stronger.You will get stronger. The only question is how strong will you get? What's your goal? Hokage? No, that's too small. Even the Hokage is just a man. No, you want to become stronger than a god. Than death itself.You'll get stronger and stronger and stronger still. You'll become greater than a god one day! You stand, clenching your dirty fist and raising it to the sky,”Someday! I'll be greater than a Hokage! I'll Be greater than Death! I'll be greater than a God!” You yell out with all of your built up anger and passion before falling back onto the bench.“But for now, I'm gonna need to rest up...” You laugh a little to yourself as you watch the clouds roll by.The girl wakes up a bit after that, instantly turning red and running away before you have a chance to really say anything,”Hey, wait!”Before you know it, she's gone, leaving you with words left unsaid. Scratching your head,”Man, I just wanted to say thanks. What the heck was all that about?”The day gets late and you decide it's about time to go home... You make your way up to your empty apartment, only to find a splendidly wrapped package in a patterned green with yellow splotches upon it sitting at your doostep.Picking up the package, you read a note attached saying...
>>31424731>Talking to HinataHaha, good luck.But yeah, we can ask her that stuff. "What do you fight for, anyway? You're a ninja right?"
>>31424731...Why should he care? I mean, I've got nothing against Hinata or having a friendship/more with her, but why, exactly, would Naruto give a fuck about her beyond why she was watching her, at the moment?
Rolled 3>>31424731What is there to convince at this point.Naruto knows next to nothing about her. The best right now is to become friends and hangout/train together.
>>31424701Oh, I definitely think the "precious people" thing should be avoided. But I like the idea of improving the world soberly and rationally. Not being all wide-eyed idealistic, but making a serious effort to help people. This is less a messianic thing and more an aesthetic and philosophical objection to the way the world is. In many ways it's the same as the power-seeking motivation. He's going to make his mark on the world by changing it forever. And ideally, he'd like that change to be a happy one. But he's not going to be stupid about it. If something's impractical he's not going to hold out hope, he's going to cut his losses and find another way to get things done.
“I heard that you passed, I couldn't find you after the exams so I left this here.While my squad is full, you are welcome to train with us anytime.While your orange suit is at the cutting edge of fashion, I thought that you might be interested in a good old classic.I hope you enjoy this gift.”~Yours Truly,Might GuyP.S. Hard work and dedication pay off, don't they?You stare at the package for a moment, almost feeling tears welling up in your eyes. You can't remember the last time anyone's ever given you something...Heading inside, you carefully open up the package with an almost surgical precision to preserve the wrapping paper. Opening up the box within, you see a green suit within. Pulling it up, you see that it's rather like the Bushy-Brow's uniforms... You almost revile the gift- almost, until you realize the sentimental value of it.It's like saying that you're one of them.Do you wear it?> Ditch the Orange. Time for Green Beast Naruto!> Stick with the Orange, you'll get something new when you get paid for missions.

>>31424747> Ditch the Orange. Time for Green Beast Naruto!
>>31424747>[X] Ditch the Orange. Time for Green Beast Naruto!But with the caveat that we're going to modify it and personalize it as we get the funds to buy new clothing. We'll always remember this simple act of kindness on Guy's part, and honor him for it. But we're going to try to make it a little bit less, well, hideous.
>>31424747>[X] Ditch the Orange. Time for Green Beast Naruto!Because I want to see kakashi face when he see us wearing Gai clothes.A mind fucked uchiha who only wants revenge, a pink hair slut whore who became a ninja just for a boy and a boy similar to himself with the whole father problems but unlike his father who save his teammate, naruto father was a real drunk bastard. The boy who similar to himself seeks power just as he did when he become a jounin at the age of 13.It a fucking powerkeg waiting to explode.

>>31424747> Compromise, wear it while training with them
>>31424747>>31424763>>31424769I'll have what they're having.Also we're just gonna wear this until we can buy something nicer, right?
>>31424736>>31424747>The day gets late and you decide it's about time to go home... You make your way up to your empty apartment, only to find a splendidly wrapped package in a patterned green with yellow splotches upon it sitting at your doostep.Oh god. A fucking gift. I'm tearing up here.> Ditch the Orange. Time for Green Beast Naruto!
>>31424742I don't know, I like talking to people when I'm trying to decide what to do next. Getting to know their perspective on the subject, that kind of things> Ditch the Orange. Might just try to do some needlework on the green suit to make it a little more fashionalbe. Maybe sew some of the not-orange part of our old suit on it?
Hey! Confirmation that we actually passed!
>>31424747>[X] Ditch the Orange. Time for Green Beast Naruto!We just became a new man. We aren't the dead last anymore.We became a genin. that the new beginning of naruto life.
>>31424801Oh! That's true. We should go find Iruka Sensei and ask him what happened? After all, we got super angry because we thought we failed, right?
>>31424799We don't know shit about clothes.
>>31424791HOLY SHIT.Naruto first fucking Gift ever.THANK YOU GAI-SENSEI!!
>>31424812We got super angry when they kept being cunts and just thought "Fuck it. If I passed I passed. If I failed, I failed. I ain't gotta stand around here and take this shit."
>>31424769It really wouldn't fit that well, though, unless it was kept zipped up. Otherwise, I'm okay with this idea.
>>31424812What if Guy just heard of us punching that kid while saying we passed and believed it.We need to find out what really happened. Let's be careful
>>31424769This. Wear 'em both for now. Slowly ditch the orange as we acquire cooler things to wear over/with our Green Beast leotard.

>>31424830Hey now, it was Mizuki who was being a dick. Iruka was on our side.
>>31424830Yeah, that's what I mean. We either thought we failed, or had no idea.>>31424835Yeah, we need to find Iruka Sensei, let's talk to him.
>>31424839Less 'on our side' more neutral. I get the feeling Iruka doesn't like us here.
>>31424835That WAS bugging me. Was Mizuki just trying to ruin our passing or did he block it entirely? We didn't leave without actually finishing the exam right?
If nubungo never stole the scroll, then doesn't that mean that that other guy succeeded in stealing it?
>>31424763>>31424769>>31424837At this point, let's keep the orange until it's too damaged to waer anymore. Steal our foes's clothes, wear them with the rest. Accumulate gears. Ditch anything that looks like tastefulBe the fashion disaster. Be the one man that said "fuck it"
>>31424860WAIT A MINUTE?If we didn't steal the forbidden scroll, did mizuki got some other kid?
>>31424860Mizuki?I don't know, he kind of sucks.Also he works for Orochimaru and has a Cursed Seal, if I remember correctly.
>>31424864No. That just retarded. More than naruto orange retarded.We waste time sewing clothes than TRAINING.
can we not be a carbon copy of Lee? keep the green suit, the sentimental value of first gift ever warrants it but as this rate it might as well just be Rock Lee quest.and the Jacket probably has pockets...>>31424860doubtful, he didn't know the titty jutsu to defeat the hokage (assuming the 3rd is in charge)he a ded man if he tries anyway.
>>31424866>Some other kid>A kid who won't get killed automatically, or is close to the Hokage>KonohamaruAw shit son.
>>31424864Can we not? Just because everyone thinks we're retarded doesn't mean we have to play along.
>>31424873Stop greeting all the people coming to read Naruto quest and post dang you
>>31424864I love the idea of taking some piece of clothing from every foe we defeat.
>>31424877Our first great contribution to the village? Help Konohamaru out of this mess!"Huh... wasn't expecting to run into a fence way out here..."
>>31424891>>31424877Why didn't you guys humor the fucker?It's fine though, you got to meet Hinata.
>>31424894Interesting...tell me, anon, what your financial situation is like? Because if my hunch is right, you might secretly be a hobo with murderous tendencies...a murder hobo, if you will.
>>31424894Collecting trophies is the greatest
>>31424904>WhyBecause he was always the most annoying character in the first few chapters.Well, besides Naruto himself.And SakuraAn-Well you get the fucking point.Meeting Hinata was tots worth it.
>>31424917>Meeting Hinata was tits worth it.ftfy
>>31424906All fa/tg/uys are murderhobos at heart.
>>31424917Bratty MCs are as commonly used as high school settings (although overtly cerebral and/or competent MCs are coming up too). It warms my heart whenever I see a new manga start up that breaks the mold. I mean, it's not like I'm asking for avant garde stuff, but I'd like to see some alteration to the formula some time, you get what I'm saying?
>>31424917And meeting hinata was the best we deserve, because we are the best.
>>31424928At this point in time, she has none.
>>31424928Nah. She doesn't get tits for a few more years.But it's totally worth the wait.>>31424944Yeah, I get that. But Naruto was annoying for a different reason. It wasn't because of his core personality (which had some good points), it's just that it was handled, and developed, terribly.
>>31424953like a neglected child, right?!
>>31424964Naruto as a show is a neglected child.This is healing, anon. We've said it before.
You stare at the outfit for a moment, kind of wary considering how it looks but... Aw, what the hell. You might as well try it on, right?Slipping out of your clothes, you find some way to get this thing on you, feeling not necessarily stylish but very sensible. The material seems to give your body the ability to breath, feels like something that would be sweat-resistant, not to mention being notoriously easy to move in.Even with the legwarmers, you feel like you're missing something and throw on your orange jacket, zipping it partway shut. To let some of the green show.Not too terrible you guess. But you'd probably want to take it off if you're going to train like that again.You look back inside the box and see something metal catch your attention. Pulling it out, you realize just what it is- An official headband of Konoha.… But after your afternoon declaration. This kind of loses luster, doesn't it?No, it's just the mark of a stepping stone.You go over to your window to look outside, up at the sky's colors turning from autumn-colored evening to a dark night with the stars shining in the sky.You see shadows dart about over the rooftops... Something is afoul this night...>End Thread
>>31424953You wrong anon.Hinata ALREADY got tits.She show them in her fight against neji.
>>31425003Thanks for running prof. You think this one will be hate fucked to oblivion in the archives too?
>>31425029Maybe. Maybe not. I'll be avoiding Naruto as a tag.
>>31425003And then Mizuki made his move.Dirty sumbitch.Good thread. It always baffles me how many players you always attract, though. No offense intended.
Thanks for the thread. It went smoother than i thought.So next thread: >Arrest Hokage's grandson
>>31425046>Good thread. It always baffles me how many players you always attract, though. No offense intended.Baffles me too. Over(human)Limit has the lowest turnout out of my three, but it's alright that way, especially for powerpicking.I think a good amount of people in this thread are here for the healing. I'd like to believe that at least.Over(Human)Limit tomorrow. I'm excited for that too. Finally got the party to objective area.So all in all, am I doing alright with this? I've been trying to weeb it up a bit more for anime experience through writing.It's weird transitioning from the WIP of expansive detail and metaphor that I've been trying to put into Overlimit and to a lesser extent AoPH.
>>31425038What do you think of the proceedings, mate? You sorta started this on a whim, didn't ya?
>>31425087>Over(Human)Limit tomorrowI can't remember what it was specifically, but I feel like the pastebin was missing something it was supposed to have. I dunno. I'll have to check the last couple threads to remind myself.
>>31425055Or go to sleep and stay out of that nonsense.Can you resist the meta-allure for power?>>31425089I did. It's been good so far. It's much easier to write for where I can just walk through canon events like bleach quest... sort of... loosely did.You guys are about halfway off the initial rails right now.I've been kind of happy with this angrier Naruto that's not exactly an edgelord and not exactly messiah.I'm more interested in knowing what you guys think of this whim-quest.
>>31425087Any filler stuff down the road ? Most of it was pointless shit but there was a few that didn't spa my will to liveLike fat curry one?
>>31425087>Doing alrightWe've not really done a whole lot, but as far as story and interaction posts? Yeah, they were cool, and/or inspired feels. Gift moment was really nice, and I found the Hinata moment amusing.>Weeb it upI can tell. But hey, it's naruto. It wouldn't be true to it's roots if it didn't have some weeb up in this shit.That being said, be careful with your anime fusions. Naruto claiming he's gonna become stronger then god and death (relating him to Blackstar, that is) felt REALLY dumb, to me anyway.Not that I don't support the 'get powerful, get stronk and gud' route, but it seems a little weird that the bullied kid suddenly goes all sacriligious, ya know?But hey, opinions.Oh also>To a lesser extent, AoPHAny particular reason it's lesser?
I was suspicious of this since it's based on shonen powerlevels garbage, but you've convinced me.>no handholding: the questsounds pretty neat.
>>31425087>>31425115To be honest, I only joined in because of what you said in the QTG.I would have joined in with Over(human) too, but it's really difficult to get involved in a quest you aren't with since the beginning. And it's even harder to be arsed to catch up. Really, it's all about convenience for me. There are so many quests I'm reading through, but I don't actively participate in because I haven't gotten through the archives.
>>31425087I think it's pretty good for now. It should be a bit more weeb than anything else simply because it is based on the anime. You just want to take it down a different path. I mean we haven't really made any big choices so I haven't seen how you're going to handle this difference in opinion on how Naruto should be.
>>31425125>Any particular reason it's lesser?Eh, you know what he's referring to, right?
>>31425115>Happier with angry NarutoYeah, I like that he has a few hang ups and anger problems too. But at the same time, I want to avoid the 'FUCK ALL OF YOU PEOPLE ITS ALL YOUR FAULT' route.That's basically Sasuke territory, and fuck that shit man.What I am hoping is>Genin training we use anger to fuel our work>With a good outlet for anger, we are actually pleasant to be around, and simply take any insults aimed at us, and turn it into raw potential and abilityThen, when we hit a certain peak (maybe finally show someone up) we let ourselves really start to appreciate how far we've come.Don't want to be anti social, in otherwords.
>>31425166But, but, this is importantWhile we don't immediately go all insane avenger at anyone who blinks at usIf the village fucks us, let's not come back for more, shall we? If the village mistreats us or gets in our way too much, let's get out and make our destiny ourselves.
We should probably befriend konohamaru.Might teach us shadow clone or at the very least we have a friend in a (future) high place
>>31425191Anon, I really don't understand your obsession with trying to leave the hidden village.Look, that shit ain't gonna happen unless we are some seriously badass ninja. Like, good enough that any assassin they send after us we can kill. Because, otherwise? It's down right suicidal.Besides. The village itself hasn't really done much. It's just a bunch of dickheads within.
>>31425121Some filler stuff will be missions. Missions will be good times to accrue valuable combat experience and seeing how some enemies fight.And of course... THey won't be "filler" as they'll have some place in the story down the line.>>31425125>the bullied kid suddenly goes all sacriligious, ya know?Hey, this has to be god's fault. Whatever god we're talking about in Narutoverse.>>To a lesser extent, AoPH>Any particular reason it's lesser?I kind of started it off without, so I felt that it'd be weird if I suddenly went into it, especially with how long it takes me to post for both of the quests.I also feel that describing things in OverHuman can be easier because there's a lot of real life stuff that we know.It's harder in more fantastical worlds.>>31425166Edge-lord Sasuke's problem is... I think it was the whole fact that there was an entire arc about saving him and he still fucked off. He was awesome as part of Team Kakashi but that?Lipstick+Eyeliner+Hands really killed it...
>>31425115I like the quest so far, will try to follow it.>Can you resist the meta-allure for power?Even though Shadow Clone is a powerful technique, I kinda prefer not pursuing it because in the manga it was pretty much the core of all of Naruto's future jutsu and not having it will force us to take completely different routes.
>>31425191>>31425213I agree. You're being obnoxiously obsessive.
>>31425214Don't talk shit about handwings
Reminds me: >https://twitter.com/AoPHquestTwitter that will announce this quest. Just going to put it in the same place.
>>31425211Konohmaru is a complete punk. Meh.>>31425213Agreed. I'm just saying, let's not dedicate ourselves to the village. Hence "if the village fucks us".So, if the village works with us, we stay. But let's not bust our ass for scraps, shall we?Wait, let me rephrase this. Canon Naruto dedicated himself to being loved by the village. Let's not do that. Let's treat loyalty like a two way street; be loyal to the village as long as the village is loyal to us.
>>31425231Hey, you mind if I asked you a question about AoPH, Prof?
>>31425191see we've already established that Naruto has been treated like shit and that no one has really tried very hard to stop it. If Mizuki came to us right now and tried to make a deal we would have literally no in character reason to not accept. Really what it comes down to is how Dranule handles the meta knowledge that is going to be behind every single post. If he can come up with situations that aren't just GOOD CHOICE BAD CHOICE EVIL GOOD EDGE MESSIAH. Then we can make decisions based on that.
>>31425214>All god's faultI...guess. Still, I felt it was weird.>Started AoPH withoutAh, I suppose that makes sense. Was just curious.Oh also>Edgelord SasukeMan, the moments where he actually started to work WITH Naruto were cool. I thought they were actually gonna be a thing or something.But nope. It was>Give him bullshit evil power to make him MORE evil>Guy leaves>NO WE MUST SAVE>Save>Leaves again anyway>OH NOOOO WE LOVE UUUUUThat shit pissed me off so much.
>>31425215>Shadow ClonesI want to, eventually, bring it into our jutsu. But uh. I dunno about trying any of the shit in that scroll. We seriously do not have the chakra for it.
>>31425215Eh, we won't be able to utilize like in canon anyway.We'd have to be more creative with it plus I'm sure we wouldn't need 3 year time skip to figure out we instantly learn what our clones learn...
>>31425251>But nope. It was>>Give him bullshit evil power to make him MORE evil>>Guy leaves>>NO WE MUST SAVE>>Save>>Leaves again anyway>>OH NOOOO WE LOVE UUUUU>>That shit pissed me off so much.Me too... Though the strangest thing is: As much as we hate the power of friendship, we hate to see it fail.
>>31425237If you're saying "Lets not get nationalistic" then that's fine. In fact, I was really excited at the idea of exploring the other villages too...er...assuming Professor handles the whole "Hidden" village part the same.Not really sure how the whole 'jutsu secrets' is gonna work.
>>31425263>we wouldn't need 3 year time skip to figure out we instantly learn what our clones learn...You'd really think that would be hinted at too.You'd really think that they'd have told him a basic strategic advantage of his technique.
>>31425267The power of friendship is great if used properly, yeah. But...they didn't even get to develop their friendship beyond "Not so bad". It went straight from "Not so bad" To "I can kill him for ULTIMA POWAAAAH"That's all I'm really worried about. Turning into Sasuke. If we can avoid that, then I am totally game for pursuing some sweet power options.
>>31425278Kishi says he can't write female characters.I think he just can't write
>>31425277Yeah, that's basically it. Well, that and Naruto was painfully stubborn about anyone/anything he deemed 'precious', and I'd personally prefer that we didn't devote ourselves to the sort of bullshit Naruto did. I mean, sweet god man, Sasuke shoved a fuckin' arm through you and joined up with several of the villages worst enemies, he's kinda beyond redemption, jesus. I'm just fucking tired and am thus shit at explaining myself.
>http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/31419519/Archived.>>31425299>>That's all I'm really worried about. Turning into SasukeNow... I've been mentioning how willing I am for you guys to go evil.Are you sure you don't want to acquire some share-ing-dan?
>>31425278Whoa, I actually missed that.Shadow Clones are hella useful. Maybe we should practice making one after we perfect the illusion jutsu?Goodness knows Naruto learning from books would take forever. Reading from two books at once would be way useful
>>31425308Wait, right.So what I am saying is; Let's be selfish. Not 'fuck the world me-me-me' selfish, but enough that we prioritize us before others, for the most part.None of this self-sacrifical bullshit.
>>31425308Nah, that's totally fine. In fact, I imagine Naruto would be pretty damn hard on people who betray him (This Naruto anyway)I mean, he rarely has anyone he can depend on. You break that trust? Good fucking luck.
>>31425313Well... If its just lying around...But no edge!
>>31425324What if it's for Hinata?>I meant to post this shit earlier.
>>31425313>That weird friend killing shitNah man. Powerful? Sure. But not worth it, I don't think.Besides, we don't need anyone's bullshit bloodline cheats, do we? We're using nothing but hardwork after all.
>>31425336Always for Hinata.Hell, she's one of the few characters I genuinely like all around.
>>31425315Got to learn it from that scroll ... That konohamaru prolly got to read.....Time to butter up to diaper helmet. Maybe give him the old goggles....
>>31425340It's hard work to kill an Uchiha.It's hard work to graft his eye into your own and pulling a kakashi while keeping everyone blissfully unaware.I can see your point.>>31425325So: if/when mr. Sausage flees from the village... Will you Bring him back? Or Kill him?
>>31425348I thought that was the Mass version? Can't we just learn the smaller variants? I mean, we don't need an army, just one or two at max.
>>31425336I joined this ride to see if we could fix Naruto, but even now after all these years of hating it, I have to admit that Hinata is a godsend.
>>31425355Kill him and take his eye
>>31425355>Kill himAnd take those sweet, sweet haxeyes
Rolled 1>>31425355He gets a chance.Maybe two.He still runs after that we will hunt him down.
>>31425355>Hardwork killing an Uchiha>What will you do when Sasuke runs...I see what you're getting at professor. I like it. But I am unsure if it would work.but to answer you>Killand perhaps>Yes graft
>>31425355Capture if possibleKill if we have toItachi would so pissed
>>31425355holy shit. someone hates this thread. its already at -13
>>31425392>Votes on suptg>Ever meaning anything then a bunch of people have nothing to do all day
>>31425357You want any shadow clones you gotta go to the scroll It's the fastest way to acquire the technique anyway
>>31425397Yeah, but still I was expecting SOME hate in thread or something to go along with it.
>>31425392So many bots...
>>31425372>You are now imagining Naruto as Rock Lee as Anton Chigur Hunting down Sasuke after deciding that he's "accountable."
>>31425392>>31425408>>31425412Yeah, it's rather heavily proxied, I think, since the number of votes level at a certain point. I tried upvoting the first thread once, then it quickly returned to its previous score after a while.It'll be better if you guys just leave it alone for a day or two, at least until it drops down to the next page. Then just add your votes. Otherwise, the guy downvoting it will just continue trying to keep it at its level.
>>31425408It's actually been crazy tame.I'll be adjusting my "archive" methods.The issue here is that when it hits that low on Sup/tg/ it disallows people from seeing it unless searching and flagging deletion.I'll make a paste with foolz addresses.
>>31425415There's always foolz anyway
>>31425405Man..that sucks. I thought at least one or two were plenty legal, for adept Ninja.I still suspect we'd get tried and maybe even executed for tampering with village secrets without any of the other shit that saved Naruto the last time.So...I dunno.
>>31425415>reluctantly closes righteous proxysoon then...soon...>>31425420Yeah, thats how I noticed it. I was probably the first person to upvote it and when I went back to check what tags were on it I couldn't find it. I wonder why people are so shitty?
I think that a darker Naruto would be a lot more fun to explore than a good Naruto simply because we've already seen a good one. So maybe Naruto doesn't sacrifice people he cares about to gain power, but why would he care about anyone outside of that small small circle? I think that while we should focus on hard work and determination to increase our power we shouldn't just dismiss chances to gain more power faster simply because we didn't do it ourselves.
>>31425430Mass shadow clone is forbiddenBut just making one is nothing. There one in the same but put on the list for mass clone's dangerAnd saving honorable gradson's life probably grants leniency
>>31425448Not wanting to be like Naruto doesn't mean we want to be an evil Naruto. There's no need to try so hard to be different.
>>31425415>>31425436Truly... And it's funny. I'm trying to "heal" my view of the setting. They could probably use it too.I mean, /tg/'s gone over it before.Magic kung fu ninjas. Hell, it might as well be avatar: The Last Airbender except with larger battles and more japanese themes.>>31425448>Hello Orochimaru. You're one of my favorite characters.
>>31425405>>31425430Shadow clones are not forbidden. MASS shadow clones are. The shadow clone is a perfectly legal technique to learn.
>>31425448The problem with trying to play a character like this in a quest is that EVERYONE becomes part of the circle.
Rolled 3>>31425475I thought it was just a forbidden technique that any one who was gud actually already knew.
>>31425472Orochimaru is a retard.Why experiment on your own village?Jesus fucking christ. If you experimented on Missing nin or ninja from other villages, the third hokage would not have tried to kill you/exiled you but supported you.Assuming that the research results and benefits goes to the village
>>31425490Not according to the wiki, no.http://naruto.wikia.com/wiki/Shadow_Clone_Technique
>>31425510>the third hokage would not have tried to kill you/exiled you but supported you.Nah. He had morals.Danzo, though, would have supported him.
>>31425510Yep. I would be fully behind experimenting on rogue ninja and captured enemies if we ever git gud enough to discover anything of value through such actions.
>>31425475The problem is learn it from whom?The scroll is the fastest way
>>31425463We're already leagues different simply because of no foxy mama hanging out in our stomach. And I agree that maybe we don't want to be SUPREME EVIL NARUTO. But we have established that Naruto wants to gain power and that almost everyone has been treating him like shit or not trying to stop the bullying.I just hope that when the choices come out they aren't in a GOOD CHOICE EVIL CHOICE way.
>>31425534That's for the Mass Shadow Clone technique. Presumably, the Shadow Clone technique would be learned from wherever else all the other ninja learn their ninjutsu, taijutsu, and genjutsu from.
>>31425436>Why are people so shittyThis is tg, man. Comon.>>31425420Yo, I was wondering: Did you read that pretty well constructed post earlier in the thread? The one talking about concerns with how you do combat sometimes?Just curious. I've not really seen enough to make any sort of judgement myself, but I hope that sorta thing doesn't happen too much.>>31425455>Saving honorable grandson>Not failing utterly against a more experienced ninjaStill, it is a tempting idea...And Konohamaru isn't THAT bad. He's just mildly obnoxious.>>31425463Basically this>>31425472>Snake manMan, why was he so god damn creepy? Was it because all the MCs were children? I dunno.
>>31425510Enemy nin can be hard to come by.That said, I respect him mostly for basically creating all of his own techniques, starting his own damn village, and deciding to show its power by manipulating another village in the process of destoying the leaf.Oh, and he killed a freaking Kage just because it happened to suit his plans.>>31425538More like Renegade vs Paragon.But no, I like my moral grays.
>>31425485I think that's another main problem too. There's going to be a lot of meta knowledge flowing around and a lot of character favoritism as well. I bet when the chance to kill Sasuke comes out most people vote to kill simply because they dislike his anime character.
Let's not graft ourselves other guys' powers, shall we? Anyone able to kill somebody who has the Carebearingan wouldn't need it anyway.That's like looting a dead guy's armor to wear it: If it didn't protect him, it won't protect you. You can still sell it, though
>>31425560>Man, why was he so god damn creepy? Was it because all the MCs were children? I dunno.Considering how many people portay Orochimaru as a pedophile in comedic situations...
>>31425355If he abandons the village his fate is sealed. Might as well take his eyes.
>>31425568>Shoot a guy>He dies>See he has a gun on him that's way better than my gun>Nah. Ain't takin that shit>If that gun was worth having, my gun wouldn't have killed him.
>>31425568Yeah no.Look at all the shit Kakashi was able to do with his sharingan.He was fucking awesome without it but he BETTER with it.Not something to discard.Remember that mist ninja with an byakuga eye?
>>31425562Oh also, since genin missions mostly suck balls, I imagine there will be lots of time skips over that period of time?No way we're gonna complain about missions that are assigned to our level properly. Our teammates sure as hell aren't.>>31425568I can think of a number of scenario where that simile breaks down, man.
>>31425560>Yo, I was wondering: Did you read that pretty well constructed post earlier in the thread? The one talking about concerns with how you do combat sometimes?It was very true for Akuma. I've tried breaking that habit a bit with AoPH, players seem fairly satisfied with combat.And Overhuman seems to be the best at combat without rolls.Honestly though, I've always found combat a bit hard between the give and the take. I know how mych /tg/ hates to lose, but sometimes it needs to happen and it's good for the story.Some fights in this like if Neji hadn't been so condescending would end up with Protagonist eating dirt.Not sure how to appeal to those complaints besides moving forward as I do now and tweaking what I can.>>31425591>Considering how many people portay Orochimaru as a pedophile in comedic situations...When I got over there he jumped to my top 5. Right next to Kabuto.
>>31425549I assumed they were the practically the same thing but you put more catra into it for massI jusy can't see them being 2 radically different techniques
>>31425603>>No way we're gonna complain about missions that are assigned to our level properly. Our teammates sure as hell aren't.Naruto wants to be greater than god now. Fuck easy shit, he wants to BLEED. >>31425617Scroll is learn foundation for it NAO. Though you might be able to learn it if Kakashi gives enough fucks to NOT teach Sasuke.
>>31425613Could we graft a sharingan and byakugan into seperate eyes? Also not trying to be edgy here but it would be rather great if we made hinata our waifu and took neji's eye for being such a bastard.
>>31425626Man fuck begging Kaka for Jutsu scrapsBest learn that shit from the scroll then
>>31425613Nah man, I don't mind losing. Long as it doesn't mean death, honestly. Losing builds character. That's the whole motiff we're going for, right?I like most of what I've seen from you, so I'd say you've gotten better. I wasn't around for Akuma, sadly, but it seems like a lot of the people who follow your quests do remember it. And the people who hate you remember it too...Er. anyway, just thought I'd ask since you didn't reply. You seem like a pretty chill guy. A huge nerd, but chill.
>>31425613>Honestly though, I've always found combat a bit hard between the give and the take. I know how mych /tg/ hates to lose, but sometimes it needs to happen and it's good for the story.It's fine to introduce the players to a difficult situation (within REASON, of course; a number of the encounters in Akuma Quest should have been readjusted), but like I said, don't impose a meaningless disadvantage. The Hypno mission is your worst mistake in terms of depriving stamina usage. The shipwreck is somewhat more forgivable because it was due to story related reasons (the same reasoning applies for the -1 in tenacity we received for the illness), but Kurojo losing 35% just from moving around is closing in on the problems you caused in the Hypno mission. You wanna impose a stamina cost on moving from place to place? Fine, but it should never be that heavy. You should take into account the number of encounters you're planning to have in the thread (and possibly in the next if the stamina level carries on over).
>>31425626>Wants to be greater then godOh, right. God damn it...That motivation is so weird.>>31425643Agreed, scroll is where it's at. We should really take up reading some time, after we get some of our shit at least to 1 or 2. Namely, Chakra and Chakra control.
>>31425646Wasn't Kurojo's stamina loss due to him using Detect, a move which forces him to move at supernatural speeds?I forget about that mission, actually. That's all I remember being a huge stam drain
>>31425672No, that was the 20% cost. I'm talking about the stamina he lost just from moving around without any moves being done.
>>31425597>Shoot a guy wearing armor>He dies>Shitty armorTrue, the Carebearingan is more of a weapon. Still, I don't like this idea. if we get our eye gored out beforehand, why not.
>>31425631>neji's eye for being such a bastard.He's still "family" you know. And Hinata's not the leader of the clan.>>31425644Yeah, if it comes down to being on the losing side of a deathmatch there may be "alternatives" to death.>>31425646Kurojo was moving at Kahkori speeds leaping through trees. Basically Naruto ninja running. Having optimal stamina and other conditions to me seems a bit unrealistic.If he had walked it would have taken much longer.In any case, I apply stamina penalties where I see necessary for the telling of the story and increasing the urgency.If you want justification, he was using Extremespeed/Quick attack and basically sprinting even after slowing down.There was also the option to rest to recover stamina despite the implications.I'm going to sleep.Last thing to say: Good night guys, fun thread for me.
>>31425726Nurutu land can keep eyes preserved in jars for decades. There's no reason not to.
>>31425731>In any case, I apply stamina penalties where I see necessary for the telling of the story and increasing the urgency.>and increasing the urgency.Um, Prof. This was the problem I was pointing out to you before.
>>31425731Uh Dranule.That what started the whole shit storm.
>>31425731>and increasing the urgency.Seriously, Prof? After you've just been criticized on this habit of yours, you're using it as justification?It's not as if Kurojo's was a major problem, he's just pointing it out as being symptomatic of what you did in the Hypno mission. You need to lay off on arbitrarily taking away stamina like that. Know the limits of how much dramatic tension you can artificially inject into the story.
>>31425731>"I was bleeding off your stamina to force you to rush">"You could have stopped and got fukd if you wanted to"
>>31425731Prof. I like you. I really do. But you can be really dense and unresponsive to constructive criticism.I just mentally throw my hands up into the air whenever you get like this. It's not a good attitude. You can apply tension, but what people are telling you is that you're applying it wrong and in an unsatisfactory manner.
>>31425731Jesus. You're almost as bad as Azure when it comes to just not understanding why your players are mad at you.
>>31425731>There was also the option to rest to recover stamina despite the implications.Oh, also Prof, this was the shit I was pointing out to you here>>31423656You're doing it wrong. Giving an option like this is not "right" and the tension you create is the kind you roll your eyes at.
One thing that I've noticed about Prof's quests and REALLY don't like about them is that there is no reason to plan the upgrades. At all. Every single challenge will always be forced into being the same relative difficulty. So long as you don't go for something completely fucktarded, it doesn't matter one little bit beyond flavor.
Ya know, this could probably have been cleared up with something as simple as the option:>Go fast, get their sooner (Cost XXX stamina)>Go leisure, take time (Cost XX Stamina)Just saying.
>>31425810>Every single challenge will always be forced into being the same relative difficulty.Yeah. I mentioned that before. He tried improving it by lowering DC requirements and applying our ranks to the dice rolls, buuuut... well, our first fight to test this in was in a boss fight. So... yeah, it really needs to be tested against 'regular' monsters too.
>>31425821No it wouldn't have been. It's the same as this>>31425804The difference, however, was that we actually did go "leisurely" on account of Hana. And it was STILL a heavy drain on stamina.
>>31425731>If you want justification, he was using Extremespeed/Quick attack and basically sprinting even after slowing down.So you're saying that Ceru could have used Quick Attack to burn Stam and GO FAST like the Khakori? Why the fuck didn't we do that instead of piggybacking everywhere?
>>31425821>>31425835Yeah. Basically.If he wants to apply a stamina drain, sure, fine. But it should not have been as heavy as it was.Honestly, the worst part about criticizing Prof is that he automatically assumes people just want things to be easier. Well, duh, that's the obvious effect of the changes being asked for, but it's not the main motivation at all. It's not wrong to want proper balance.
You just know that if we'd taken one of those items that reduces Stamina costs for moves, he'd do even more bullshit to burn off Ceru's stamina constantly.It makes me wonder if they'd ever even be worth getting.probably not.
