Hello and welcome to Tuffle Quest!The gist:>You are one of two young Tuffle twins, thrown at Earth starting in early Dragon Ball by your "father">"Canon" has already taken a sharp turn from the "norm," as you'll readily see, and can take even sharper turns depending on the thread's action/dialogue choices and ideas>Stats and dice mechanics will be used, and explained when needed as the quest progresses>Let's all try to have some fun, ok?
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8-ess7S0PS0Mount Paozu. Thousands of miles from the world's giant capital city, far away from civilization of any sort. A remote place where fierce creatures rule and normal humans dare not tread. Sadly, you and your brother weren't told that when dad dropped you off here. Now you're both stranded in the wilderness, with only the phrase "kill the dirty space monkey" to go by, courtesy of dad.Dad is kind of an asshole, in retrospect.You sigh and turn to your brother, lamenting your lot in life. And your lack of direction. "We're lost.""We're not lost! We just... need to find landmarks! Or something..." he tries to reassure you. Unconvincingly. He brushes aside some of his blonde hair to try and get a better view of the area. Sun hasn't finished rising, so it's fairly early in the morning, you both guess."Bro I'm pretty sure dad's abandoned us here. We're gonna live out the rest of our days on some backwater planet. Which might not be long if what he said was true..." you grumble as you run your fingers through your long, messy red hair. What you wouldn't give for a comb or something right about now..."Aw come on! He wouldn- okay yeah, he probably did." your brother concedes.This sucks. Fuck you,>A. Robot Dad>B. Ghost Dad
>another dragon Ball questplease don't
>>39971856>A. Robot Dad
>>39971856>>B. Ghost Dad
>>39971826Can we be fraternal twins? Somnius didn't let us be the little girl for DBZ Human Quest despite there being plenty of votes for it.
>>39971856>B. Ghost Dad
>>39971943I'll back that to be different in a Dragon Ball quest.Just make her a reverse trap that only the brother knows and plays along with.
>>39971943>>39971989I back this suggestion.>>39971856>A. Robot Dad
>>39971989>reverse trap>everyone still things they're identicalSure, I'll go with it.
>>39971856Ghost Dad, and your creepy, spooky computer... invention... grandpa... thing, too! Ugh, maybe it's for the best that you never go home. Four years on that sterile, vacant planet with nothing but phantoms to talk to were bad enough. Except for your teacher, Izumi, she was nice. Kicked both your asses a lot while teaching you two self-defense, but still relatively nice. Maybe this planet has nice folks like her around. Hopefully still among the living."Well sis, any bright ideas?"Bright ideas. Right. Well, it's still relatively early. Maybe you could-"WAAAAAAAAAH"Huh. That certainly sounds like a small child in danger. And it's not alone, there're loud footsteps chasing after it, headed your way.>A. Check Scouter before doing anything>B. Cautiously investigate the situation>C. CHILD IN DANGER, TIME TO BE HEROES!
>>39972066>>C. CHILD IN DANGER, TIME TO BE HEROES!
>>39972066>C. CHILD IN DANGER, TIME TO BE HEROES!we are children and therefore idiots
>>39972074>>39972072Question is, less or more of an idiot than the usual /tg/ quest protag?
>>39972066"There's a kid out there in danger! Imma save it!""Sis no, wait!-"No time for waiting, you rush from the hill you've been standing on and follow the screams and footsteps. Not long before you see a large, purple reptile chasing a-...what the hell is that little girl wearing. Who would let their kid wear that. Bah, questions can come later.You leap into action, pulling the little girl aside as the reptile almost chomps down on her. Before the girl can form much a reaction, you set her down and turn towards the reptile. It looks both angry and hungry. Your Scouter gives you reading of... 8? Haha. Oh man. The dumb thing.>A. Kick it in the face, send it running with its tail between its legs>B. Shoot it in the face, that's what it gets for trying to eat little girls! (roll 1d20)>C. Shock and awe! Impress the little girl you just saved with your monster-slaying skills (roll 1d20)>D. Disengage, the child is safe with you
Rolled 8 (1d20)>>39972322>B. Shoot it in the face, that's what it gets for trying to eat little girls! (roll 1d20)
>>39972322>>A. Kick it in the face, send it running with its tail between its legsBoot to the head.
Rolled 7 (1d20)>>39972322Just had to check what the fuck truffles are>B. Shoot it in the face, that's what it gets for trying to eat little girls!
>>39972442They're delicious is what they are. I think you mean Tuffles, anon.Fuck.... we're gonna accidentally kill Chi Chi.
>>39972322>>A. Kick it in the face, send it running with its tail between its legs
>>39972322Took 5 to clear.You smirk at the big, dumb lizard. Poor thing has no idea what it's in for. Forming a gun shape with your right hand, you focus. OK. Just like teacher taught you. Building up your ki to a single point at the end of your finger, you take aim at the reptile."GEIST MAGNUM!"You hit the reptile in the face and it lets out a roar of pain. It certainly wasn't expecting that when it woke up today. It looks at you both, blood dripping from the wound you made.It promptly starts running away, now roaring in... terror? Sure, terror. Guess it doesn't much appreciate meals that can fight back."Th-that was so cool!"Oh right. Little girl with the ridiculous outfit. You turn to her as your brother arrives.>A. Attempt Universal Greeting>B. Ask her what her name is, and what she was doing out here
>>39972555>A. Attempt Universal GreetingPlease let it be something dumbLike the dumbest thing
>>39972555>>A. Attempt Universal GreetingPower level likely 25ish.It is dragon ball, better be cheesy.
>>39972555>>A. Attempt Universal Greeting
>>39972555>"GEIST MAGNUM!"I see what you did there.>A. Attempt Universal Greeting
>>39972555You place your hands on your sides and declare to the girl, "Bah-weep-Graaaaagnah wheep ni ni bong." A flawless declaration of the Universal Greeting. Yes.She tilts her head in clear confusion. "Berwip crawna-wi pinnibon?" she... attempts. Gods, you really ARE on some backwater planet. Still, she seems like she's trying to be friendly. With a bow, she says to you, "Thank you for scaring that off. It and a lot of its friends have been chasing me since yesterday. The others I could scare off but that one..." She looks to make sure it was gone. "U-um, my name's Chi-chi, what's yours?"Oh. Right. Your name. Well, it would be rude not to tell her."I am...>Lina (a scary name)>Kazuya (a boy's name)>Ackee (a proper Tuffle name)>Maple (haha, like the tree)
>>39972839>>Maple (haha, like the tree)
>>39972839>Kazuya (a boy's name)
>>39972753Running in a crowd>>39972839>Maple (haha, like the tree)I mean come on, it's Dragonball. Punny names are a law of the universe.
>>39972945I'm honestly undecided.Because Kazuya makes it's own meta joke: Kabuya, Kaguya, and Kazuya
>>39972955This is, of course, an excellent point as well. I could go either way, I just picked the non-meta pun because I had to pick one.Also, then our brother can be Mahogany.
>>39972990https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=14D5wKSVlXg>>39972839>Maple (haha, like the tree)
>>39972839Maple is a multi-layered pun. They're related to the Lychee plant. Lychee. Raichi."...Maple Mahogany, and this is my brother, Acer." you point to brobro."...like the tree?" she tilts her head again. "Well, it's very nice to meet you, Maple.""Where are you from, little girl?" your brother asks.She frowns, looking down at the ground. "Mount Fry-Pan. I got chased by th- hey! Who are you calling little?! You're not much bigger than I am!"She has a point. Honestly, she seems to be taller than either of you, not even counting the... helmet? She sighs. "I miss my daddy...""Ah, um, well, we can help try and take you home?" your brother suggests. "Might be more of those things out there." She shudders at that thought."But it's so far away...""Never fear, Chi-chi! We'll get you home as fast as possible!" you declare with a smile."But, how?">A. We're faster than we look (carry her and go by foot)>B. THE BIRD WAY!
>>39973208>B. THE BIRD WAY!Vomit into her mouth for nourishment for the walk ahead
>>39973208>A. We're faster than we look (carry her and go by foot)Let's not go flying around unaided just yet. Don't want to completely skew the power level.
>>39973208>A. We're faster than we look (carry her and go by foot)
>>39973208>>A. We're faster than we look (carry her and go by foot)
>Chi Chi likes us instead>Goku ends up with Bulma>Their kid isn't pushed into book learning instead of training>new Gohan actually stays relelvant and becomes stronger than Beerus before the Buu saga is even over
>>39973208"We're faster than we look." you smile smugly. "I'll carry you. Brobro, scout ahead.""Only if you don't call me 'brobro' for the rest of the trip." he grumbles."I promise to try." Haha. Yes. Try. To the best of your ability. Chi-chi grabs on to your back and you hold her by her legs. Both you and your brother start off as fast as you can move. It seems the girl wasn't quite prepared for this, as indicated by her screaming. Brobro is ahead of you both, his ears covered by his hands."Slow down slow down slow down!" she shouts in a panic. You both slow down slightly, already well out of the mountainous region and close to what seems to be a... desert? With giant structures that look like skyscraper-sized mushrooms. Huh. Strange."Told ya." you tell the girl on your back. She seems to still be taking in how fast you were moving. "So, we just kinda traveled straight ahead. Should we be heading in any one direction?""Um..." she looks around. Spotting what seems to be a "proper" dirt road, she points in that direction. "Th-that way. P-please don't run so fast this time!">A. Moderate pace>B. GO FASTER>C. Write in
>>39973501>Goku WASN'T dropped on his head>he becomes the big bad
>>39973571>A. Moderate pace
>>39973571>Start of slow and gradually speed up, we'll remain at the fastest pace we can with her still being comfortable
>>39973571You move at a slower pace for her, your brother still ahead of you both. It's still fairly fast, but she isn't screaming anymore. You're out of the desert, at least."Thank you..." she says semi-quietly, clinging to you. Quite a grip this kid has.Your brother looks back at you both and decides to start up some conversation. "So, how old are you, Chi-chi?""I'm twelve years old. How old are you two? And what's that thing on your heads?" she asks as she gently pokes your Scouter. The poke activates it, and detects something up ahead, with a... 9? Huh. Interesting. Doesn't seem like it's another reptile.>A. Answer her questions>B. Stop and demand the thing show itself
>>39973971>>B. Stop and demand the thing show itself
>>39973501Given what happens to Trunks in the future where everyone didn't die horribly, he'd still be an irrelevant loser.>>39973971>A. Answer her questions
>>39973971>B. Stop and demand the thing show itself
>>39973501>>39973582I'll be honest about this. OP pic gives an indication to what Goku is up to. Furthermore, he's never met Chi-chi.
>>39973971Answer her, gotta make gokun a different man.
>>39973971"We're... eight, I guess?" you explain. Technically correct."Technically four. Technically fourteen." your brother adds. Also technically correct. This confuses her even more than the Universal Greeting. "Look, eight is probably the easiest to understand. We're eight.""And the things on our heads are Scouters. They tell us if there's danger up ahead. Speaking of which..." You stop. This thing is up to no good, you can feel it. Still holding Chi-chi, you shout at what's ahead. "Show yourself, thing!""How rude!" it bellows. Well, seems it can talk. Coming out from behind a rock, the massive creature stands before you both. "I am no 'thing,' you brat. I am the great Bear Thief of Diablo Pass!" Impressive title, or at least it would be if you had any idea what it meant."Listen buddy, we're just trying to bring this little girl home. Can you leave us alone?" your brother asks in an annoyed tone."Leave you alone? Hah, you dumb humans, I'm going to eat you all! A perfect little breakfast for me!" So that's what the people of this planet are called. "Humans." good to know.It takes out its sword, a weapon larger than any of you. Looks like it won't leave you alone. Chi-chi tightens her grip on you. Poor kid, this just isn't her day.>A. Set Chi-chi down and attack it with your brother>B. Keep holding on to Chi-chi, let brobro deal with this
>>39974528>A. Set Chi-chi down and attack it with your brotherGlad you're finally running Kato.I give this five threads before they try to lesbian loli Chichi or Bulma
>>39974528>>39974591Dammit i forgot we were a girlWell fuck
>>39974528>A. Set Chi-chi down and attack it with your brother
>>39974642/tg/ always wants to be a little girl
>>39974674Pah, unless they are superior space-faring super-lizard, of course!
>>39974674It's something different for Dragon Ball though.>>39974528>A. Set Chi-chi down and attack it with your brother
>>39974528Well. Time to teach Mr. Asshole Bear of Jerkbutt Pass a lesson. Brobro would have probably hit you if you said that out loud. Haha, too bad he can't read your mind. At least you're pretty sure he can't. You help Chi-chi down and take a defensive stance with your brother."Die, you brats!" the monster shouts as it swings at you. Dodging out of the way, you strike at the sword with your palm, snapping it in half. The look on its face is one of instant regret. Your brother then rams his fist into the monster's gut, breaking through the armor. You move to make an uppercut, knocking it skyward. You and your brother turn to each other, give a nod, and jump up, then kick the monster down to the ground. It lands about a meter away from Chi-chi.Crap."Ooogh... when... I get my hands on you two..." it grumbles, then notices the girl in front of it. "Hrrggh... haha, I'll start with YOU!""Noooo!" Chi-chi screams at him, placing her hands on her helmet and... firing a laser or some sort of beam from it. The shocked expression on the monster's face is all you see before it vanishes in an explosion.Well. That just happened. You and your brother land down close to where the monster was, a small crater now taking its place."Sis, um, my Scouter's reading a level of... 13? Yeah, 13. She's a lot stronger than she looks." your brother scratches his head. Before you can say anything about that, she starts crying."I want my daaadddyyyy!"Poor kid.>A. Try to cheer her up>B. Tell brorbo to cheer her up>C. Write in
>>39975061>>A. Try to cheer her up>Write-inHUG
>>39975061>B. Tell brorbo to cheer her uppls no loli chichi yuri
>>39975061>C, Write-inPat her head, attempt to cheer her up, fail miserably
>>39975061>A. Try to cheer her up>C. Write-inGive the kid a hug.
>>39974591>>39975149Your Social Link with her is far too low to even attempt something like that. No need to worry just yet.
>>39975061You walk over to the crying girl. She looks at you with tears still in her eyes."Don't worry, we're gonna make sure you make it home safe and sound." you reassure her."P-p-promise?" she starts to wipe away the tears. You nod. She hugs you, and you give her a friendly hug back, helping her onto your back again. You and your brother start moving again, going a bit faster than before, but not quite at the child-scaring speeds you tried earlier."So, who all do you live with, Chi-chi? You mentioned your dad, but who else is there?" your brother inquires from her."My mommy passed away when I was little. It's only me and daddy, and the villagers." she sighs a little."What kind of person is your dad?" he attempts to move away from any lingering thoughts from the previous question."He's really big, and looks really scary, but he's actually really nice and really funny sometimes too." Chi-chi gives a giggle. That's better. "Ah, there we are!" she points at something up ahead.It is a mountain. A mountain that is on fire. A small village is next to it, but you don't really notice all that much about it because THAT MOUNTAIN IS ON FIRE. Guess its name is a bit more... literal, than you were expecting. Approaching the village, you're greeted by some locals who all seem to recognize the girl.(cont.)
>>39975750"The Ox King's daughter is safe! Somebody, please tell him to call off the search."The Ox what now. This kid's a Princess? Huh. You don't have much time to process that before loud footsteps approach. It's... a human? wearing an odd sort of armor. He's bigger that that Bear Jerk you three just got rid of."Daddy!" she shouts as she runs towards the mountain of a person."Chi-chi!" the man shouts as he picks up his kid. Aww. Seems like she was right. "You two were the ones that saved her? I'm in your debts. Please, allow us to show you some hospitality."It's nice to have some things not trying to kill you for a change. And have some living company at that.>A. Sure thing, we could use some food...>B. Can't stay, we have a monster to hunt down>C. Your mountain is on fire. Why is your mountain on fire?
>>39975798>C. Your mountain is on fire. Why is your mountain on fire?Doing the monkeys work for him
>>39975798>C. Your mountain is on fire. Why is your mountain on fire?Time to break the timeline
>>39975798>C. Your mountain is on fire. Why is your mountain on fire?Fire bad.
>>39975798>C. Your mountain is on fire. Why is your mountain on fire?
>>39975798"Your mountain is on fire. Why is your mountain on fire?" you point at the mountain. Which is on fire. You've kinda been staring at it since you got there."Gods, sis, you can't just ASK why someone's mountain is on fire!" your bro tells you. "...though that is a good question."The behemoth of a man sighs. "It's a long story. Please, come in and have something to eat with us."Your growling stomach lets you know that sounds like a good idea. You enter what you assume to be his residence, and he begins to tell you his story. How he was once a cruel but protective man who the people of his village feared as much as they respected. One day, about ten years ago, he wanted to make sure that the treasures of his castle, residing atop that mountain, would be secure, and acquired the aid of a spirit to enchant the grounds.Flames would secure it from any intruder, flames of a furnace from beyond the grave. They dug a "moat" for the flames to rise up out of, but all too quickly learned that once the flames started, they could not stop. So now he lives in his village with his people, having learned a lesson from the experience, and becoming a far more benevolent ruler. And an excellent cook, as you can tell from the food he's serving you all."There are few things that could ever put out those flames. Even fewer people, like the great Master Roshi, know where one could find them." he finishes his story. But then he changes tone for a moment, becoming angrier. "Yet it seems that even the flames may be faulty at some points. A group of thugs from something called the Red Ribbon Army entered my castle by air, and I assume took what riches they could. Including my prized possession, the Seven-Star Dragon Ball.">A. What's a Dragon Ball?>B. The Red What Army? That's a dumb name.
>>39976245>>B. The Red What Army? That's a dumb name.
>>39976245>B. The Red What Army? That's a dumb name.
>>39976245>>B. The Red What Army? That's a dumb name.Yeah, maybe if it was the Blue Ribbon Army instead...
>>39976245>B. The Red What Army? That's a dumb name.Ribbon? What, they couldn't afford proper headgear?
>>39976245"The Red What Army? That's a dumb name." Who names their Army Red Ribbon. Who even DOES that. Maybe if it were like... Red Pants. Or Blue Ribbon. Or something. Wait no those are both stupid too. This planet is silly."Don't let the name fool you, they're the world's most notorious criminal organization. Even the King of the Earth has been hesitant to act against them directly." the Ox King tells you.So, the planet's name is Earth. Nice to know. "What makes them so dangerous?" you inquire."They've got some of the world's most brilliant but also most amoral scientists, men and beasts from places I've never even heard of. And if they're after the Dragon Balls, only bad things are in store for everyone. If they gather all seven, it's said that any wish they desire could be granted.""That's horrible. Has anyone tried to stop them?" your brother asks through wolfing down some of the breakfast foods. Eggs and "pancakes" he called them."Well, there've been rumors that one of their bases was raided by a little boy, not much older than my Chi-chi here" he pats his daughter on the shoulder, "and he helped leave them to the authorities. At first I thought they were nothing but rumors, but from what Chi-chi tells me about you two, maybe there's some truth to it all. It's good to see the younger generation stepping up and doing what's right."A young boy strong enough to take on an entire army, and with a heart of justice? Maybe he could help you stop that killer Space Monkey."Um, Maple, Acer? What are you two gonna do now?" Chi-chi asks you both.>A. We're gonna stay here for a while, maybe do some sightseeing>B. We're gonna go beat up Dumb Name Army!>C. Ask about Chi-chi's outfit now that you have the chance. Seriously, what IS that?>D. Write in
>>39976678>B. We're gonna go beat up Dumb Name Army!
>>39976678>D. Well, that mountain seems kinda dangerous, let's see if we can put out the fires.
>>39976678>C. Ask about Chi-chi's outfit now that you have the chance. Seriously, what IS that?
>>39976678>>B. We're gonna go beat up Dumb Name Army!>>C. Ask about Chi-chi's outfit now that you have the chance. Seriously, what IS that?
>>39976678>C. Ask about Chi-chi's outfit now that you have the chance. Seriously, what IS that?"How about some nice, reasonably armour, or at least a training gi?"
>>39976678"We're gonna go beat up Dumb Name Army!" you declare as you stand up. Your brother is embarrassed for you."I have to ask, are you ever going to do anything about that mountain? It seems... dangerous." Acer asks the Ox King."Hrmn... well, if you can ever find Master Roshi, he'd know what to do..." the man scratches his chin."So we'll add that to our laundry list. Might kill two birds with one stone." you jab at the air. Find ancient and wise master, put out mountain that is indeed still on fire, and save the world from people who give organizations dumb names! Actually, speaking of laundry... "By the way, Chi-chi, what's up with that armor of yours? I mean, not one to judge but...""It was my mother's." she tells you with a smile....this explains both more and yet less than you'd wanted it to. Eww. Maybe you can convince her to wear something... more standard.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jSTdqvea_K8>YOU HAVE COMPLETED THE FIRST SOCIAL LINK WITH CHI-CHI>DRAGON BALL TUFFLE QUEST #1 END>Twitter account is @KatoQm, will have status updates there>Got some questions?

>>39977463>>39977682Thanks for playing! I'll be completely honest, it's my first attempt at a quest, even though I've kinda been planning this for a few weeks. More than a little nervous, but hopefully things will turn out well. I have many, many plans on where to take all this, and many more potential plans depending on how things play out.
