You start out basic, with a simple energy blast at your stationary foe, who simply ducks forward and lets the blast sail over his head, blasting through the tree and causing it to fall down on his head. Yajirobe groans and falls backwards, a piece of meat still sticking from his mouth as he falls unconscious."Well...that ended quickly," Yamcha comments, flabbergasted."I guess that's what happens when we expect anything out of Yajirobe," Krillin says."Should we do something?" Yamcha asks."Nah, he'll be fine," Krillin answers, turning to you. "Nice work.">A. Thank him>B. Say that Yajirobe needs help>C. Challenge Krillin to a match>D. Challenge Tien to a rematch>E. Challenge Yamcha>F. Challenge Chiaotzu>G. Train by yourself>H. Look for Popo>I. Look for Kami
>>36063992>B. Say that Yajirobe needs help
>>36063992>J. Ask Krillin why he's almost as short as you.
>>36063992>>C. Challenge Krillin to a matchso your gunna run on sundays from now on?
>>36064126Probably for the next two weeks, at least. My Saturdays have been busy.
>>36063992>F. Challenge ChiaotzuStill need to save his ass
>>36063992>C. Challenge Krillin to a match
>>36063992>D. Challenge Tien to a rematchWell, sort of >D. I think we should ask Tien how he usually trains. Because so far all we've done is figure shit out quickly rather than actually improving.
hey OP did you ever go into the DBZ table top threads when they were big? Might be cool for a look.
>>36064296I never got into them.
>>36064288>>36064249>>36064246>>36064126>>36064085>>36064057I'm still here, just waiting for something to get three votes
>>36063992>>36064544>C. Challenge Krillin to a matchThere you go.
>>36064561Much obliged, anon
>>36064561>>36064249>>36064126"Krillin, let's spar!" you suggest.Krillin chuckles. "Wow, really going all-out today, huh?""Come on Krillin, you can take him!" Yamcha shouts.Krillin grins. "Alright, I'll spar with you, Kaguya."The others (aside from Yajirobe, who is still unconscious by the trees) make some room for yourself and Krillin.Krillin drops into a defensive stance, waiting for you to make your first move. You remember that Bulma scanned his power level at Kame House, and it was higher than yours. Still, with your new tricks, you might be able to win.>A. Don't let Krillin be in that stance for nothing, charge with everything you have>B. Fire an energy attack>C. Wolf Fang Fist>D. Dodon Ray>E. Kamehameha >F. Drop into a defensive stance
>>36064803>>D. Dodon Rayhe's not moving quick hit him in the leg.
>>36064803>CIn the dick.
>>36064803>Other. Snatch up some leaves, charge and throw them in his face as a distraction. Then kick him in the gut or something.Kami's place has trees, use the leaves!
>>36064803>D. Dodon Ray
>>36064927>>36064909>>36064848>>36064845This thread seems kind of dead, should we call it quits and come back to this another day?
>>36065172might be the time, also the thread has just started so give it a little longer.
>>36065172You've got eight voters, we're just not discussing anything. Because none of us see an advantage to one attack over the others.Try going with Dodon Ray and see where it goes.
>>36065172Keep going and Dodon Ray this bald fool.
>>36065218>>36065201>>36064927>>36064845You raise your right hand, pointing a single finger towards Krillin's leg. It takes only a moment for you to gather the necessary energy to unleash your attack."Dodon Ray!" you shout.Krillin leaps into the air, the blast missing him by a mile as he quickly gathers his own energy into a blast that he throws down at you.You leap into the air in a similar manner, only to be charged by your diminutive opponent a second later. You barely manage to defend yourself as Krillin attacks with a ferocious series of punches and kicks that quickly begin to force you back.>A. Drop back down to the ground and launch energy attacks>B. Try to counter>C. Surrender>D. Fly higher and unleash an energy attack
>>36065292>>A. Drop back down to the ground and launch energy attacksseems were going for a ranged approach here.
>>36065292>B. Try to counterCan't defend all the time.
>>36065292>b. Try to counter.Kick him in the dick.
>>36065292>A. Drop back down to the ground and launch energy attacks
>>36065292>A. Drop back down to the ground and launch energy attacksDakka harder, dakka faster
>>36065292>Dgo big or go home
>>36065330>>36065347>>36065352Knowing you can't keep defending forever, and that a counterattack could easily backfire, you take a different approach.You quickly descend to the ground, gather a small bit of energy, and hurl it in a ball of light up at Krillin, who easily swerves to avoid it.You gather energy a second time an hurl another ball of it up at Krillin, who once again flies out of the way. This time, however, he doesn't stay hovering above you, and instead comes flying right for you.Holding your right hand and left hand out at opposite sides of your body, you gather energy into each. At the same instant, a ball of light appears in your right and left hands, and you throw the right one at Krillin, barely missing him, as he increases his altitude slightly, letting the blast pass beneath him.You throw the energy ball in your left hand, and Krillin swerves to the side, coming around you.You spin and thrust your palms towards him, shooting a wave of energy that he ducks under, coming around and striking you from the right.You tumble away from him, landing on your feet and seeing him flying straight at you. Thrusting your hands forward one last time, you unleash an energy blast that he is unable to dodge. Instead, he stops, eyes wide, and raises his arms to block the attack..The result isn't quite what you'd hoped. You stopped Krillin, but you don't seem to have done any real damage to him with that attack. He lowers his arms and lowers himself to the ground, crouching and preparing to charge.>A. Charge>B. Energy attack>C. Wolf Fang Fist when he gets close enough>D. Dodon Ray>E. Kamehameha>F. Stand your ground and defend>G. Prepare to counter his moves
>>36065608>C. Wolf Fang Fist when he gets close enough
>>36065608>A. ChargeWe have him stunned, but only for a moment. Need to press the advantage!
>>36065608>C. Wolf Fang Fist when he gets close enoughWolf Fang Fist him in the dick.
>>36065608>>C. Wolf Fang Fist when he gets close enoughYamcha look upon us with pride!
>>36065608>C. Wolf Fang Fist when he gets close enoughIt worked really well against us when we charged, IIRC.
>>36065608F. Stand ground and defend. We've already fought other opponents (and unless the QM is Mary Sue'ing us, we can't keep this up- we're worn, battered, and tired.) Though, apparently I missed something after the Yamcha fight. Unless we're back at full health, we were about on par with him and took a good beating. We're probably going to lose to Krillin
>>36065674senzu bean. or however the hell you spell it.
>>36065674We ate a senzu bean. We're good.
>>36065709>>36065711Nevermind then. I still need to find a way to get caught up- or at least figure out the scheduling for these
>>36065608>>C. Wolf Fang Fist when he gets close enoughAlright, let's do this. I feel bad about missing the last too threads.
>>36065723>I still need to find a way to get caught up>https://archive.moe/tg/search/subject/DBZ%20Human%20Quest/type/op/order/asc/
I hope we can learn Solar Flare soon. Between Kamehameha, Dodon Ray, and Wolf Fang Fist, I think we're good on offense right now and need some defense. And unlike the later two moves, Solar Flare never goes out of style and is always useful. Besides, Solar Flare could buy us time for Wolf Fang Fist or a charged Kamehameha, and thus make a good combo.
>>36065668>>36065664>>36065663>>36065648>>36065625You drop into a crouch, and Krillin charges.As he gets closer, you raise your right hand above your head, and lower your left hand in front of you, preparing to unleash Yamcha's Wolf Fang Fist.As Krillin gets closer, you channel energy into your hands, and picture a wolf in your mind. Krillin comes closer, and you prepare to attack, only for him to jump over your head and land behind you.You turn and receive an energy wave to your chest, pushing you backwards and eventually knocking you onto your back.Krillin leaps into the air and throws another energy attack your way.Throwing your legs over your head, you roll backwards and get to your feet, jumping back and evading the blast. Krillin does not let up, and throws more energy attacks that you scramble to avoid.>A. Keep dodging: hopefully he won't hit you and will eventually tire out>B. Charge and try to take him down>C. Shoot a Dodon Ray>D. Kamehameha>E. Surrender
>>36065828>C. Shoot a Dodon RayWe gotta attack quickly. We won't give us a chance to charge.
>>36065828>C Shoot a Dodon RayNot much else we can do right now, except dodge or surrender. Might as well try it.
>>36065828>>B. Charge and try to take him downto close for a codon ray need to gain momentum.
>>36065828>B. Charge and try to take him down
>>36065894>>36065828This>B. Charge and try to take him downWe're about his size, anyway, probally.
>>36065825We just need to ask Frieza to teach us that sphere shield thing he does.
>>36065920>Frieza>teach usUmmmm...I know "and the Kaguya was a Cell" and all, but even if we go evil, Freezia is the last guy we should trust. If we learn that, the way would be just by mimicking it, and that's a whole other saga away, so not too relevant right now.
>>36065894>Too close for a Dodon rayAnon, we've been pushed back by his energy wave and subsequent ki attacks, there's a good deal of distance between us, he's flying and charging into his beamspam seems like a pretty bad plan.Not that it matters at this point, first to three and all that.
>>36065828>C. Shoot a Dodon Ray
>>36065977ah right had to reread the post for a sec but still Krillian is a experienced fighter and he knows how to DOGE a dodon ray, besides he's firing energy blasts at us right now so we would be a sitting duck since it seems that the dodon ray needs the user to be stationary.
>>36066037The beamspam is also leaving him mostly stationary, he'll either need to let up to dodge, giving us some breathing room, or get hit by the ray.Even if we manage to close with Krillin and don't get torn apart by the beamspam on the way, the likelihood of overpowering him in melee is minimal, as, like you said, he is an experienced fighter.
>>36066152true but we need to gain the momentum, were playing on his cues not ours. It might not seem like it but he's in control or at least has more control than we do, we need to do something unexpected and reckless to throw him off and gain some control.
>>36066210Successfully crippling a limb or at least forcing him to stop the beamspam for a second would accomplish the same thing, doing something under the logic that it's so stupid he won't expect it isn't a good tactic, and I'll be utterly shocked if it accomplishes anything other than losing the fight.
>>36066299Yeah I suppose your right, well just have to see how OP writes it.
>>36065918>>36065901>>36065894Rather than continuing to dodge or returning fire, you elect to charge Krillin head on and attack him physically.So, you quickly change direction and make your way towards Krillin, who quickly blasts you back down to the ground.Between the burns and the impact, that attack hurt, and you wince a bit as you get back to your feet.Krillin brings his hands to his side and cups them together."Ka.......me.....ha...."A blue light appears in his palms.>A. Charge>B. Energy blast>C. Kamehameha>D. Dodon Ray>E. Surrender>F. Dodge>G. Block
>>36066350>>C. KamehamehaFight fire with fire after all
>>36066350>B. Energy blastbreak hisconcentration
>>36066350>>C. Kamehamehawell >>36066299 was right after all, damn.
>>36066350>C. KamehamehaTime for ye olde battle of wills.
>>36066350>C. KamehamehaThis is gonna be fun. Prepare for glory!
>>36066350>D. Dodon RayIt's faster and stronger than a Kamehameha, and will probably break his charge if we cripple an arm.Of course, Kamehameha already has three votes, so I don't know why I'm bothering...
>>36066350>B. Energy blast>>36066367
>>36066350>DHit him while he's charging. Dodon Ray is faster.
>>36066419look if nothing else you can be commend for staying the course when everyone turned away from the path.
>>36066419We've had QM fiat before in this.
>>36066470>>36066511It would cripple one of his arms and it would come out faster than the Kamehameha, that's more than enough advantage.It is stronger at this level, it just doesn't scale very well, IIRC.
>>36066399>>36066398>>36066372>>36066361Quickly cupping your hands at your side, you begin to focus your energy, as quickly as you can."Ka...me.....ha...me...." you say quickly, your hands growing warmer by the second as you put energy into the attack."meee.....haaaaa!!!!!!" Krillin shouts, thrusting his hands forward and sending a blue beam of light your way."HAAAAA!!!!!" you yell, thrusting your hands towards him and unleashing your own attack.The two beams collide in a brilliant flash of light, and you instantly feel a strong force pushing your own blast back towards you. Straining against it, you attempt to push your attack, along with Krillin's, towards your opponent. However, Krillin's fighting power is higher than yours, and you've been injured and barely scraped your foe. So, your beam is steadily pushed back towards you.>A. Put every bit of strength you can muster into this attack>B. Brace for impact>C. Try to disengage
>>36066596>C. Try to disengageDon't want to run out of senzu beans
>>36066596>C. Try to disengageQuickly fly above the beam and Dodon Ray him!
>>36066596>C. Try to disengage>>36066628LIke this, add a good Dodon Ray.
>>36066596>C>>36066591It's not stronger and it scales just as well.
>>36066650fuck it going with this guy.>>36066596
>>36066596>C. Try to disengageI don't actually remember this choice ever happening in the show
>>36066596>A. Put every bit of strength you can muster into this attack
>>36066680You're about to find out why
>>36066680We already had the beam struggle, so it got old. And half of us didn't want to do that in the first place.>>36066704So we really are a stupid five year old.
>>36066680>>36066653>>36066650>>36066628>>36066627Not seeing any real chance at outdoing Krillin's power in your slightly weakened state, you decide that the entire beam struggle is pointless. So, your next instinct is to dodge. However, as you begin to move, and cut off your attack, Krillin's blast strikes you before you even fully realize that it's coming for you. Apparently, straining against your attack, and putting more power into his own caused it to move much, much faster when it no longer had any resistance. And, with the strength of the attack so greatly increased, when it hits, it hits hard.You feel a terrible burn across your body, and see that you're hurtling through the air before everything goes black.You wake up in the same bedroom as before, Mr. Popo standing over you."Hello," he says, grinning as you open your eyes. "I am glad to see that you are well.">A. Ask what happened>B. Ask how long you were out for>C. Ask for food>D. Ask for water>E. Ask where Kami is>F. Sense everyone>G. Go back to sleep
>>36066704If I had to guess, it probably has something to do with the beamspammer being able to curve/direct their blast. So if you disengage, you don't have your beamspam around to mitigate the impact (maybe?), and your attacker will still be able to chase you with the full force of their beam.
>>36066907>B. Ask how long you were out for
>>36066907>B. Ask how long you were out forthat explains why no one very got the fuck out when they saw that they were loosing the beam war.
The legendary super human was taken out by Krillen...We're gonna die faster than Yamcha.
>>36066995We beat Yamcha, so he'll still die before us.
>>36066907>B. Ask how long you were out for>>36066995To be fair, Krillin is relatively strong at this stage in the game and has years of experience over Kaguya.
>>36067009>>36067040>>36067045I know he is. He's probably the strongest human. But considering how the best he did was survive, I hope the year isn't going to be over soon, so we have time to get stronger.
>>36066907>>B. Ask how long you were out for
>>36066907rof tuo erew gnol woh ksA .B<
>>36067042>>36066978>>36066933"How long was I asleep?" you ask."A little over a day," Mr. Popo answers, handing you some water. "I'm surprised that you've managed to end up here twice in the first week of training."You sip your water and quickly sense the others, finding everyone other than Kami and Popo outside, presumably still training. >A. Ask if you've gotten any stronger >B. Tell Popo you want to go train>C. Tell Popo you want to speak with Kami>D. Tell Popo you're hungry>E. Tell Popo you want to go back to sleep
>>36067179>D. Tell Popo you're hungry24 hours without food, as a 5 year old?Time to eat.

>>36067179>C. Tell Popo you want to speak with KamiI dunno why, but could be funA wouldn't make sense. We've gotten beat up; we're not a saiyan.
>>36067179>A. Ask if you've gotten any strongerGod we're resillient
>>36067224He has a few different rooms that can be used for intense training, and would probably be one of the better people on the lookout to teach us how to fight properly.
>>36067199>>36067220>>36067227"Have I gotten any stronger?" you ask.Mr. Popo chuckles. "Well, when you aren't asleep, you've been training hard. Yes, I can tell you've gotten stronger already, as have the others."Your stomach growls, and you tell Mr. Popo that you're hungry."I thought you might be," he comments, handing you a plate of tasty looking food, which you proceed to devour like a starving beast."When you are finished eating, Kami would like to speak to you," Popo informs you before quietly leaving the room.>A. Go to Kami>B. Go ask Popo if you can have anything else to eat>C. Go outside to the others>D. Go back to sleep
>>36067420>A. Go to KamiYou don't keep God waiting.
>>36067420>A. Go to Kami
>>36067420>>A. Go to Kamiso god whats up?
>>36067420>A. Go to KamiSup God, how's tricks?
>>36067420>>A. Go to Kami>>36067305I hope we can do that.
>>36067508>>36067463>>36067449>>36067444>>36067559When you finish your meal, you decide that it's best not to keep Kami waiting.Setting your plate and glass on the bedside table, you get out of bed and exit the room. Following Kami's energy signature, it doesn't take long for you to find him, predictably, waiting for you in his throne room."Ah, finally woke up, have you?" Kami asks as you make your way into the room.He remains seated on his throne, smiling lightly as you approach. "I hear your match with Krillin was rather intense," he continues. "I also hear that he was not the only opponent you fought yesterday. It is clear that you take this training very seriously. You are pushing yourself to your limits, devoting every ounce of your being to preparing for the coming threat."He nods approvingly. "And, your impressive displays have inspired the others to work harder on their training. You all are improving faster than I had expected."His expression turns grim. "However, I fear it is not enough. I do not believe any of you truly grasp the scope of what is to come."He raises his hand and points to the exit of the room. "Go gather the others and bring them here. I think I should give you all some perspective.">A. Tell him you are taking this seriously>B. Do as he says and fetch the others>C. Ask if this means he's ready to start training you all>D. Tell him you don't think you can train right now
>>36067740>B. Do as he says and fetch the othersOh shit its time for this weird episode
>>36067740>>B. Do as he says and fetch the otherswonder what he means?
>>36067740>>B. Do as he says and fetch the others[Being a good boy intensifies]
>>36067740>>B. Do as he says and fetch the othersTime to punt some saiyans!
>>36067871Good boy, or best boy? Gohan wishes he had out swag.
>>36067971what are the odds that we're still not better than gohan by the time the sayans get here.Being a space monkey is like having easy mode unlocked
>>36068007No, even with Vegeta and Nappa, Gohan still had the "only strong pissed off thing". This kept going until the great Saiyaman saga. He might only really outshine us in the Cell saga.
I can't wait for us to have some tag team shenanigans against those saiyans.
>>36067927>>36067871>>36067789>>36067774You leave Kami's throne room and walk the halls until you find your way outside.Tien and Yamcha are sparring, with Tien clearly having the upper hand. Chiaotzu fights a losing battle against Krillin, and Yajirobe watches from the sidelines, eating, as usual.When you announce to everyone that Kami wants to see them, they rush to you excitedly, except for Yajirobe, who only gives you a shrug before returning to eating. "Finally! The real training can begin!" Yamcha yells excitedly. "So, where do we need to go?" Tien asks.You tell them that Kami is in his throneroom and that you'll lead them there. Yamcha and Chiaotzu run ahead, deciding to just find Kami on their own, while Tien and Krillin hang back."Hey, are you coming?" Krillin asks Yajirobe."Nah, you guys go ahead," he answers. "I'm in the middle of lunch."Krillin sighs and turns to you. "Well, we're ready to go."The three of you make your way to Kami's throne room, where you find the guardian standing with Yamcha and Chiaotzu."So, it's time to start our training with you?" Krillin asks.Kami nods. "It is. Allow me to show you where your training will begin."Kami leads you and the others through the lookout, eventually coming to a small doorway. He pushes it open and steps inside. Following, you find yourself in a massive room, a giant pendulum swinging back and forth from the center of the ceiling."This is where the majority of Goku's training took place," Kami informs you. "In this room, space and time, past, present, and future, are all one.">A. Ask what that means>B. Ask what he wants you to do>C. Stay silent
>>36068300>A. Ask what that means
>>36068300>>B. Ask what he wants you to do
>>36068300A. Ask what that means
>>36068300>>A. Ask what that means
>>36068300>A. Ask what that meansIsn't that really dangerous? If past and future are one. doesn't that mean we could be as weak as we were when we were born or as strong as we will ever be?
>>36068378>>36068376>>36068364>>36068340"What does that mean?" you ask Kami."Within this room, you can be transported to any place, and any time," he tells you He leads you to the center of the room, and gestures to a circular symbol on the ground, inside of which is a pyramid, and a pentagram."Those of you who are willing, stand in this circle," Kami instructs. "You will be transported one hundred years into the past.">A. Ask why you're being sent there>B. Ask what he wants you to do in the past>C. You don't want to do this>D. Stand in the circle
>>36068518>>D. Stand in the circleTime travel? Neat!I mean, we are five.
>>36068518>D. Stand in the circle
>>36068518>>D. Stand in the circle
>>36068518>>D. Stand in the circlewere gunna die.
>>36068593It'll be fun. Though, ideally, we'll get to dodon ray one of their heads off because they murder Kaguya.
>>36068593A Lot. Once we're done we should ask if we can fight stronger opponents using this, since those guys were like Raditz tier.
>>36068593>>36068567>>36068541>>36068531Time travel sounds awesome!You quickly move into the circle, standing in the center. Tien, Chiaotzu, Yamcha, and Krillin follow. Your group turns to face Kami, who nods."Now, close your eyes..." he instructs.You do so, and when you open them, you find yourself on another world. Buildings all around you are in ruins, either crumbling apart, or nothing more than piles of rubble. The sky is an ugly shade of red, and the ground is littered with hundreds of corpses. Their armor, and the devices on their heads suggest that they are Saiyans. "It looks like Kami didn't send us back far enough," Yamcha comments. "All of the Saiyans are dead.""Yep, battle's over," Krillin agrees."Still, there's bound to be some other Saiyans skulking around, right?" Yamcha asks. "Let's just look around until we find them."(To be continued)
>>36068716We wouldn't know they're raditz tier unless we specifically remembered how strong he was. But, honestly, how we are now, Raditz is damned good practice.>>36068758Thanks, Dralo. It's been fun.I miss the long threads, though.
>>36068790Hopefully in the next few weeks they will get long again
>>36068821Good to know.
>>36068821Are they usually on Sundays?
>>36069071Usually Saturdays and occasionally on weeknights, but my next few Saturdays will be busy
>>36069071The scheduling has got me confused, actually. It used to be on Saturdays, then it got switched to Sunday>>36069093So it will be Saturday this time? Great!
>>36069116Probably not next Saturday, possibly the one after.
>>36069093No worries. I'll just try to keep an eye out like I've been doing then.
