>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?Previously on Dragon Ball Tuffle Quest: you and your friends arrived in Penguin Village, met the uncannily strong robot girl Arale, defeated the villainous Mercenary Tao, and split up to secure the final two Dragon Balls. After lifting the curse from King Gurumes, you have but one Dragon Ball left before you can restore Penny's land and remove the cursed Blood Rubies from it!
>>40780260https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FgwVaqN0QxkBoth you and Goku exit King Gurumes' castle, Suno and Penny thanking you for your help and the restored man himself joining in, saying that he'll have his people cease their search. It's quite dark out, and you haven't heard anything from Acer or Chi-chi yet. You're starting to wonder if something is up, or if they've already gotten the Dragon Ball are on a little date together. Heeheehee."Maple, why are you smiling like that?" Goku questions. Huh, you didn't seem to notice but you do have a rather dorky grin across your face."Oh, noooo reason~" you say as you skip around him. "Well, we have one Dragon Ball left, and brobro and Chi-chi are after it.""What do you think we should do, Maple?" Goku places his hands behind his head.It's a fair question. You could check in on your brother and Chi-chi, or you could regroup back at Kame House and wait for them to contact first, or you could do something else, maybe chat with Goku for a little while? It's getting a bit late, and you're fairly tired.>A. Brobro and Chi-chi>B. Kame House>C. Something else?
>>40780260We are live. Now do we face Crane school next?Or does Goku visit Baba to get the last ball and visit his grandpa?Maybe Korin is holding it for safe keeping?
>>40780288>>A. Brobro and Chi-chiAsk them whats up? You are tired and heading back to kame house.
>>40780288>B. Kame House
>>40780288>B. Kame HouseChat it up with Goku. How come we haven't met his parents yet?
>>40780288>B. Kame House>>40780335He's already told us they're dead...
>>40780335...I... Are you retarded?
>>40780288>>B. Kame House>>40780335I don't know, maybe because Frieza blew up planet Plant or something. Or maybe he killed his adopted father when we went Great ape.
>>40780335No... Not that
>>40780358Wait, did he already tell us that? I know Maple knows his "grandpa" is dead, but I don't think we ever actually asked about his parents. Which Maple doesn't know we're killed by Freezy
>>40780452OK first off she does know the Saiyans got wiped out. Second if there were a couple other Saiyans on Earth we would fucking know.
>>40780452Jaco told you that most Saiyans are dead, meteors hit Planet Plant.Writing...
>>40780452We do know. Galactic Patrolman Jaco told us it was blown up while he was visiting Earth.
>>40780288talk about what he wants to achieve in his future.If he wants to visit a school and visit the college one day to have an additional ability to martial arts.
>>40780452He said they went away, which are the exact words he used when talking about his grandfather, who is dead.
>>40780288You give a yawn. You feel like you've been going at nearly full-speed since this adventure started. It's probably best to get some rest. Besides, your brother both has his Scouter and is a telepath, if something were wrong he wouldn't be so quiet about this. "Let's head back to Kame House, we need some rest."Goku yawns as well. "Yaah... yeah, probably a good idea, Maple." Both of you fly off, going to Kame House at a leisurely pace at first. Goku decides to change things up a bit "Say Maple, wanna race there?"You smirk at him. "Someone is confident. You think you can outfly me? Who was the one who taught you how to do it?""Heehee, won't know unless we try!" he says as he starts bolting in the direction of Kame House, you following after quickly. As the two of you head off, you notice that Goku really has gotten better at this, you're gonna have to keep it up if you want to beat 'em again in the next Tournament. Actually..."Hey Goku, what do you wanna do some day?" you ask him. "Like, is there something you've been kinda looking forward to becoming?""I dunno, I just wanna get stronger! And stop bad guys that hurt people, too." he says with a wide smile. Heh, typical Goku.As you arrive at Kame House, you're greeted by Bulma, Krillin, and Launch, in her calm personality, and explain what you've been up to. Launch pats you on the head and praises you for offering to help just out like that. Inside, you see Yamcha resting on the couch, his leg raised and wrapped tight. Roshi smiles at you, while the head of the Pirate Robot... welcomes? you with a "YARR.">A. Ask how Yamcha is doing>B. Ask Launch what she's been up to>C. Ask Roshi about Tao>D. Ask someone something else?
>>40780566>>A. Ask how Yamcha is doing>>B. Ask Launch what she's been up to
>>40780566>A. Ask how Yamcha is doing>B. Ask Launch what she's been up to>C. Ask Roshi about Tao

>>40780566>A. Ask how Yamcha is doing>B. Ask Launch what she's been up to
>>40780566>>B. Ask Launch what she's been up to>>C. Ask Roshi about Tao
>>40780566You look to Yamcha first. "How bad was it? Are you healing OK?""Agh... y-yeah, it hurts, but I'll live." he replies, then looks at Master Roshi. "Apparently, that little stunt against Tao impressed your teacher.""I've decided to take Yamcha on as a pupil." Roshi says with a smile. "He and Launch both will be training under me, especially since your little group of friends have all certainly passed my training. There's nothing much else I can teach you kids." He sits down, a look of pride on his face as he looks at you, Goku, and Krillin."What about Tao, anyway? What'd you do to him? I mean, he seemed dangerous...""I let his jerk brother come pick up the man. Seems like you hurt his pride far worse than any arrest could have. Crane Hermit was so mad when he learned that my students beat him so easily!" the old man says with a laugh."But, what if he comes after any of you again?" Bulma asks with concern."I'll beat him next time. For sure." Yamcha gives, a determined look on his face.You finally turn to Launch. "How've things been with you? Or, er, you two?"She smiles sweetly. "Good. We're learning a lot. We've been... talking more, too. It's not easy, but we're managing.">A. Ask Launch if she thinks learning telepathy will help her communicate with, er, herself>B. Ask Roshi if he's sure if that was the best decision>C. Ask Bulma about the Pirate Robot, if she's learned anything from it>D. Ask Krillin something (write in)>E. Something else?
>>40780764>A. Ask Launch if she thinks learning telepathy will help her communicate with, er, herself>C. Ask Bulma about the Pirate Robot, if she's learned anything from it
>>40780764>>A. Ask Launch if she thinks learning telepathy will help her communicate with, er, herself>>C. Ask Bulma about the Pirate Robot, if she's learned anything from it
>>40780764"Say, Launch," you start, the woman sneezing and turning blonde again, but apparently aware of what you started. "Uh, brobro and I were gonna teach Yamcha this as well, but... think that you'd be helpful if you learned how to communicate telepathically? I mean, you might be able to talk with... er, yourself, easier.""Hrmn. If you think it'll help..." Launch rubs her chin. "I can share with ya' something, but, ah... would kind of like to keep it a secret." she then rubs the back of her neck, looking away. "That enough for your 'Equivalent Exchange' thingy?"You nod, happy that she remembered that. You then turn to Bulma, the head of the Pirate Robot hopping around the floor. "So, you learn anything useful from it?""Less than I'd have liked." the purple-haired young woman frowns. "I can kind of understand its makeup, but it's almost like I'm looking at a lost branch of technology. Very little modern technology is like it." She then turns to the robot head, concern on her face. "I was able to find out that they're extremely resistant to electromagnetic pulses, for some reason... and the head has data for emitting their own.""Electrowhata?" Goku and Krillin ask simultaneously."Electromagnetic pulse." you repeat. Better find how to most simply explain it for them. "It's... think of it like an invisible attack that hurts electronics. TVs, cars, planes, and robots. It makes them stop working." You then turn to Bulma, with her now holding the head of the Pirate Robot.>A. Ask if she can speculate on why that is>B. Speculate on your own, then try and brainstorm with her (write in)>C. Something else?
>>40781096Something that is resistant to EMPs and can dish out their own...
>>40781096>>A. Ask if she can speculate on why that isYeah I am stumped. Not sure where I should start.
>>40781096>>B. Speculate on your own, then try and brainstorm with her (write in)Survive a nuclear explosion?
>>40781096>>B. Speculate on your own, then try and brainstorm with her (write in)Well, it was a time of war, so it would not be surprising if it had lost tech. EMP may of meant that a LOT of radiation type weapons were used. Even more dangerous ones. Its power may of been related too. It has been able to restart after a few hundred years. The cave is still ther too, we can investigaate stuff there later too.Earths tech has been kinda weird, wonder if it relates to forgetting what happened, including the war stuff.
>>40781096That's... a conundrum. You wonder if there might be something horrible related to that. Like if the things were designed to survive atomic weapons. It might explain their resilience. Or maybe such weapons were used on that King Piccolo character, and it was made as a safety feature. It WAS a time of war, after all. Scary thought, if the ancient Pirates themselves had a nuclear arsenal... but your Scouter didn't pick up anything like that. Strange... wait, why would the robots be able to emit their own EMPs? That... you telepathically share what you're thinking with Bulma. She's not quite sure why that other feature is there either."I'm kinda stumped." you shrug. "Just what secrets do you hold, you crazy bucket of bolts?""TIME FOR SOME PIRACY!" it shouts. Gods, you kind of wish this thing had a mute button. Well, perhaps it does, but that's a rather permanent one."Was it a weapon of war, survival, both?" Bulma turns it in her hands."Maybe a tool of the trade as well?" Launch adds, to all of your surprise. "Well, if it's supposed to knock out electronics and stuff, and if they're able to resist it, maybe the Pirates used it to do what Pirates do. Easier to rob from a helpless group.""That makes sense... but not a pleasant thought. I mean they were criminals, after all, but... in a time of crisis like that..." you frown."Could always look back in that cave? I mean it's still there, right?" Launch asks. You, Bulma, and Yamcha all shudder. Eventually you get some rest, the boys sleeping downstairs while the girls go up. When morning breaks, you're starting to get worried that your brother hasn't tried to contact you.>A. Try and see what's the holdup>B. Something else?
>>40781398>>A. Try and see what's the holdup
>>40781398>>A. Try and see what's the holdupGot a bad feeling about this.

>>40781500Damn Brobro. Sorry Chi-chi.
Hey at least Brobro gets be protector/rescuer for her.
>>40781398You first check on your Scouter. Your brother doesn't give a response, but both he and Chi-chi are still in the direction of the last Dragon Ball. They're not in trouble, you think. Wait a sec... his Power Level is up to 659. Chi-chi's is up to 479. What the hell? Well, time to put the telepathy skills to use...'WOULD YOU STOP RUNNING YOU STUPID CAT?!'What. 'Brobro what's the holdup?''Cat person named Korin has the Dragon Ball, but he won't give it over! Took my Scouter, and now he's been playing keep away all night!''It's morning.''YOU THINK I DON'T KNOW THAT?!''Also how did you get stronger than me?' you communicate with a bit of annoyance.'I... wait, huh? I am?'Well. That's new. You tell Goku and Krillin what's going on, Master Roshi surprised at the mention of the name Korin."I once climbed that tower to try and receive the Sacred Water, a drink said to raise your strength tremendously." He looks down. "It took me three years.""THREE YEARS?!" everyone else shouts.>A. Rush in that direction, take whoever wants to come>B. Let brobro and Chi-chi handle this, they can do it>C. Something else?
>>40781640>>B. Let brobro and Chi-chi handle this, they can do it
>>40781640>>A. Rush in that direction, take whoever wants to comeLets go see some shenanigans.
>>40781640>A. Rush in that direction, take whoever wants to comeMight be good to meet this Korin guy face to face, even if we won't interfere with our brother's efforts.
>>40781640>>A. Rush in that direction, take whoever wants to comeAsk for something to bring. Always start with a bribe.
>>40781640>A. Rush in that direction, take whoever wants to comeI want this to take a long fucking time.
Should I get the music ready?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MK6TXMsvgQg
>>40781640"Well boys, I'm going. Who wants to come along?" you ask. Goku and Krillin both nod at you, everyone else saying they'll stay. The three of you blitz in the direction of the Dragon Ball, and finally spot a tower in the distance. You try to fly towards it... and feel like you slam into a wall in the middle of the air, all three of you crashing to the ground. You pick yourselves up at the base of the tower, a tall man with tan skin who looks like he's from around these parts, with a little boy on his shoulder who seems to be as small as you are, maybe smaller."More flying children. How strange. I am known as Bora, keeper of this land. Are you with the other two from last night?" he asks."The blonde one was my brother, Acer, and the girl was our friend Chi-chi. Um... why did we crash into the ground?" you ask, a little embarrassed."Korin appears to want to test you. Your brother and friend have already climbed up there." the tall man points upwards. The little boy hops off his shoulder and looks at you all."I am Upa. You all seem nice, but why are you here?" he asks"We're trying to help some friends and get back my grandpa's Dragon Ball." Goku informs him."Wow, she's kinda cute." Krillin mentions to you and Goku.>A. ...that's a boy, Krillin>B. Don't tell him>C. Climb up the tower, race your friends to the top>D. Something else?
>>40781925>A. ...that's a boy, Krillin>C. Climb up the tower, race your friends to the top
>>40781925>B. Don't tell him>C. Climb up the tower, race your friends to the top
>>40781925>D. Something else?Take a look at that anti flying wall. Is it a ward? Can we learn anything from it? Can we understand or manipulate or replicate it?
>>40781925>>B. Don't tell him>>C. Climb up the tower, race your friends to the top>>40781975This also
>>40781925You shake your head at Krillin. Goku just seems confused. Well... before you get down to business, you take a look at that "wall" again. You attempt to detect any sort of magical curse, or something to it, but... it's almost like it isn't even there. How strange. Perhaps something to ask the cat man. You then turn to your friends. "Race you two to the top!""OKAY!" Goku and Krillin shout. Bora chuckles to himself as you three start your climb. You climb, and climb and climb and climb. It seems like the thing goes on forever, but after about an hour all three of you make it to the top. Heading inside, you spot your brother and Chi-chi laying on the ground, exhausted."Heeeey brobro, enjoy your date?" you tease. He just... smiles at you?"Don't care. Stronger now. Ooh... need some rest...""Looks like I have more company." a deep, low voice comments, walking down the stairs to the floor you all are on. It... is indeed a cat, with white fur and a staff. Your Scouter's only giving you a reading of... 8? What? "Had a feeling you'd be coming.""Excuse me sir, are you Korin?" Goku asks, wagging his tail. The cat man nods. "Then... do you have the last Dragon Ball?"Korin shows you all just that. With four stars on it. "This ol' thing?""Grandpa's ball!" Goku shouts, overjoyed. "Can we have it, please?""Yes.">A. ...what's the catch?>B. Walk over and try to take it>C. Ask him about the wall>D. Something else?
>>40782319>>A. ...what's the catch?>C. Ask him about the wall

>>40782319>>A. ...what's the catch?>>C. Ask him about the wall
>>40782319>B. Walk over and try to take itCome on, it's like you guys forgot who Maple is
>>40782319>>A. ...what's the catch?
>>40782413She's impulsive, but she's also smart. She just heard her brother was running around trying to catch this guy for a whole day.
>>40782413I think that Maple wold realize that if Acer doesn't have the ball, it isn't that easy.
>>40782413This is not someone she wants to punch in the face.Maybe instead she wants to scratch his ears?
>>40782319You eye the cat man suspiciously, looking at your brother and Chi-chi. "...what's the catch?""You have to just come and take it." he says with a smirk."Well, okay." Goku attempts to walk over and do such, with the cat man knocking him away and into the wall. Your Scouter... gives you an overflow error as it jumps up from 8 to what seemed to be more than a hundred times that. Gulp. "Oww... what'd you do that for?!""You didn't get it." Korin tells him. "Try again.""So, about that wall?" you try and recalibrate your Scouter, it giving you the same reading of 8 once it's back to normal. "The one you made to stop us from just flying in here?""I didn't make it." he says as he walks over to a pot, grabbing two... little green beans out of it, and handing them to Acer and Chi-chi. Instantly they seem to be back to normal."W-what was that?" Acer asks, surprised at how he feels now."Senzu Beans. Fill you up for 10 days, and restore any recent injuries."An idea pops into your head.>A. Ask if you can take a couple away from here, your friend needs one>B. Try to take the Dragon Ball yourself>C. Something else?
>>40782665>>>A. Ask if you can take a couple away from here, your friend needs one>>B. Try to take the Dragon Ball yourself

>>40782665"Mister Korin, sir, can we please have a couple of those? A friend of ours could use it." The cat man promptly tosses you two."Yeah yeah, I know about what happened. Your brother mentioned it, Maple." You look at brobro, then the cat man. "That is your name, right?""I'll take it back to him, sis. Be careful, he's trickier than he looks." your brother mentions, then hops down the entry place. You, Goku, Krillin, and Chi-chi all take stances around Korin."Four on one, huh? You think that'll be enough?" he says smugly."Try to follow me, I've been trying to read his movements." Chi-chi mentions. Goku, her, and Krillin all try to dash at him, leaving a few afterimages behind. Before you can join in the fray, you notice that he himself has left an afterimage, Goku and Chi-chi crashing into each other while Krillin hits a wall. You try to follow him, but the Korin you think you see turns out to be ANOTHER afterimage. Your Scouter has another error."Not good enough. And stop relying on this thing, it won't help you here." he immediately grabs the Scouter off your face. "Come on now, I didn't get a reputation for being the 'god of martial arts' for nothing. Tricks like that won't help.">A. "God of Martial Arts?">B. Try to use some afterimages>C. CLOTHES BEAM!>D. Something else?1d20 folks. DC is 20.

>>40783598It was made better just to troll the DUMB NAME ARMY.
>>40783260You leap at the cat man, trying to grab both the Dragon Ball and your Scouter back. "'God of Martial Arts' huh? And how'd you get that title?"He dodges you almost effortlessly. "You live a few centuries as a cat, pick up a few tricks, and suddenly folks start calling you things, giving you funny titles and such. I'll be honest, kid, your presence has spooked some powerful folks up there." he motions up with his staff. "They wanted to make sure I was a proper challenge to you all.""Flattered!" you shout, attempting to grab for the Dragon Ball again only for Korin to bat your hand away with his tail. Goku tries to lunge at him, only for him to dodge the monkey boy and grab him by the tail, flinging the now limp Goku at Krillin. Chi-chi and you try at it again, only for him to leave an afterimage at the last second, with the two of you crashing into each other face-first. Korin chuckles.This series of events continue for the rest of the day, until all of you are exhausted to the point of near-collapse. "All right, nice try kids, but I think you all need some rest. Especially you, little miss." Korin points at Chi-chi.>A. No, keep trying!>B. Take a break, talk with Korin (write-in encouraged)>C.

>>40783730>B. Take a break, talk with Korin (write-in encouraged)"So is that a literal up there or figurative?"
We better analyse the shit out of those senzu beans, make tons more. Profit
>>40783730You lay down on your back, panting for a moment. Break is good. Break is very good. Chi-chi especially needs to rest up. Yaaaay oh ow your everything is sore. Korin approaches you."Smart choice, Maple." he says with a laugh."Haa... ha... s-so is that a literal 'up there' or figurative? What kind of powerful people are you talking about?" you ask him, Goku and Krillin sitting up. Chi-chi just lays down next to you, clearly more exhausted than everyone else here, in spite of the Senzu Bean earlier."Good question. Yes." Korin says with a bit of a smirk. "Let's just say that the watchful eyes of this world are paying attention to you and your friends."You wait a few minutes, and then sit yourself up as well. "We've seen some weird stuff around our travels, since you lived so long, you aware of any other major events that shaped it to be so unusual? And such a weird miss-mash of stuff? Demons, vampires, undead, robots, witches, Dragon Balls, etc. etc.""You see all sorts of crazy things when you get to be my age. None were quite as devastating as..." you send him a telepathic message. You realize that his mind is... strange, all you can really read back is the image of a fish, but he gets you clear. "...King Piccolo."The other Turtle School students turn their heads to him. You and he have a silent stare. Not much needs to really be said about that. In order to not worry your friends, you switch conversation topics. "How did you keep making my Scouter flip out? It registers you as only barely stronger than the average person.""Haha! That little device is imprecise. It only looks at what the person's letting out, someone could easily fool it, if they knew how." he comments, placing your Scouter down.

I've passed by this thread too many times (I don't do quest threads) but I have to know: Is the OP image not Alena Santeem? A fighter who uses no magic? Why is she doing a kamehameha?
>>40784298Korin is NOT to be fucked with.
>>40784380Maple looks a lot like Alena. Just that Deagon Quest early designs were done by the dragon ball artist, so you see fan art in the poses.It fits both quest and art style.
>>40784380Well technically Ki blasts are not really magic. MC here just got visual resemblance to her, so she's used for illustration.
>>40784235You raise an eyebrow. "Are you... training us?""Caught on faster than your teacher, it seems. And I was rather blunt with him. Hah!" Korin starts laughing out loud."Wuh? But why?" Goku tilts his head."Because you need it. If you can't even get this Dragon Ball, what'll you be able to do when someone as strong as I am, or even stronger, comes knocking?" He starts scratching his ear and licking his paw. It's... a fair point."Well..." you stand up and bow. "Then I guess I can thank you, Master Korin. Won't put this opportunity to waste."All your friends say the same, bowing as well. Your brother arrives the next morning, telling you that Yamcha has fully healed, and Bulma looked into one of the Senzu beans you got. However, this day seems to be more of the same. None of you can match up to Korin's speed, even with all of you trying at once. And yet... you all also seem to become more aware of each other, where your positions are, how much effort and energy you're putting out. Even Korin's movements seem to be slightly easier to read, though you're still a couple steps behind. Even with a bit of foresight, all it tells you is how you're going to fail. In spite of all this, the cat man is fairly impressed."I must say, a year ago you all would have easily handled me at the level you're at now, but I guess that extra training I got really helped." he says after you exhaust yourselves again. "I guess that's enough for the day, take five, kids.""We'll never get the Dragon Ball with Whiskers the Wonder Cat outpacing us at every turn..." Acer grumbles."We gotta try!" Goku exclaims, looking at the Dragon Ball with determination.>A. Ask one of your friends something>B. Ask Korin something>C. Something else?1d20 yet again. DC 16.
>>40784825>B. Ask Korin somethingSo where did you get the extra training and who from if you don't mind me asking?
Rolled 7 (1d20)>B. Ask Korin somethingWho on Earth is good enough to train *you*? I thought you were the "god of Martial Arts"?
Rolled 20 (1d20)>>40784825Don't worry, I got this.
Rolled 5 (1d20)>>40784825
Rolled 3 (1d20)>>40784874also
>>40784887Yeah you do
>>40784887so you do, critfriend
>>40784887Yes you do!
Rolled 13 (1d20)>>40784825>>B. Ask Korin somethingWho trained you in that year? Must of been some intensive training.Also something really big must be happening in the future for this training.
>>40784887Yes, yes you do. Good job.
>>40784887Tuffle Luck back in full force. And a crit, at that... Oooooh ya'll are gonna like this.
>>40784887Fuck, I just missed trips.Oh well, one day Khorne will bless me.
>>40784825"Master Korin, who on Earth is good enough to train YOU? I thought you were the 'god of Martial Arts?'" you ask Korin."Heh, titles aren't everything, 'World Champ.'" he responds, licking his paw again. "Rather... they aren't static things. They're things you have to work towards, and keep working towards. Kings and Queens can become commoners, commoners can become monarchs and other rulers. Just like Guardian of this planet, and his assistant, reminded me very well."Everyone looks at him in surprise, but... it makes sense, thinking about it. "So they wanted you to be able to help us... well, guess we'll have to thank them, if we ever meet them." Acer comments."Are... they worried about something? Is there something big on the horizon?" you inquire. Korin stares at you and your brother. He sighs."Yes. More than one thing, both hopefully in the long term..." He seems like he doesn't want to say it, but knows it's something you need to hear. "The prick you call 'ghost dad' will come for you two, one day in the future."You and your brother look at each other. You figured this was a possibility. Let's just hope it's far, far away. As your friends ask about that, you let them know about how your teacher gave you a final warning that he's no longer a good person, not delving into things deeper. Yet... this seems to harden their resolve. The following day of Korin's training goes by much, much better than before. You can... sense where all your friends are, and even more, where Korin is. Not telepathically, but... it's hard to describe, almost as if you have a Scouter inside you. Not quite accurate, no numbers, but... there's a gut feeling to it. By noon, all of you have formulated a good plan, and finally, after much struggle, Goku gets his grandpa's Dragon Ball, while you and Acer get your Scouters back."I did it! I did it! Grandpa!" he dances and cheers.>A. Ask Korin what exactly you've learned>B. Thank Korin for the training>C. Something else?
>>40785354>>A. Ask Korin what exactly you've learned>>B. Thank Korin for the training
>>40785354>>B. Thank Korin for the training
>>40785354>B. Thank Korin for the training>C. Group hug!
>>40785354>B. Thank Korin for the trainingthe real question is do we stay till we can catch him on our own or go summon the dragon
>>40785354>>A. Ask Korin what exactly you've learned>>B. Thank Korin for the trainingNo more running into the invisible man at baba's
>>40785415Penny and Suno wanted to fix the place the Gurume destroyed, let's get that done.

>>40785532I rolled the 243 my broMy first high roll of this ENTIRE fucking quest, feels good
Rolled 176, 68, 242, 70, 120 + 250 = 926 (5d250 + 250)>>40785506>Rolled 243 + 250 (1d250 + 250)Congrats, Maple.Your Power Level is 1115.You have hit Level 2.Now, let's see how another person fared...
>>40785600Maple made the best gainz, if only by one.
>>40785616He said person, singular so i'd assume those are Goku or Brobro's
>>40785614Korrin got swole, we would have beat pre-swole Korrin shitless
>>40785638We saw the kami rating i think go back and forth a lot, to Korrin early in the quest. A 630 rating I think?This is going to be one paniced raditz and one salty vegeta when z hits.
>>40785600Maple can now feasibly solo Raditz.By DBZ he'll be crying for mercy.
>>40785690She has a much better and more rounded move set. 200 powe can be over come by that.
Rolled 108, 238, 151, 72, 234 + 250 = 1053 (5d250 + 250)>>40785600Goku's Power Level is 1247. He's almost as strong as your teacher.Brobro...
>>40785784Good job brobro
Does higher level clothesbeam give access to a wider variety of materials or does it just increase the quality and durability of the one we have as well as making the clothing we make look better?If you're winging it you dont have to give a too in depth of an answer.Also do we still have that giant pink ribbon we stole from the random demon?
Rolled 64, 207, 223, 241, 40 + 250 = 1025 (5d250 + 250)>>40785784Acer's Power Level is 1147. He got a little head start due to earlier attempts, but you got the bigger jump for this round.Krillin...
>>40785854Everyone is doing well. Hope ChiChi can keep the streak going.
>>40785820Maybe higher level clothes beam puts more force into the clothes.
Rolled 237, 203, 242, 109, 71 + 250 = 1112 (5d250 + 250)>>40785820Clothes Beam is affected by some things, but most importantly is training in it. You do still have the pink ribbon, and THE FLASK the Ox King gave you.>>40785854Krillin jumped up to 1023.Last but hopefully not least, Chi-chi...
>>40785912Nice. Everyone got some really good gains.
>>40785820Clothes beam is a magical technique. So while it may not be useful in itself later on even if we master it, the underlying principle in conjuring something might come in handy when learning other similar spells. One day, Maple might be able to conjure a block of Katchin and such like the Supreme Kai can.
>>40785912Woah what.When did Maple become the weakest member of our crew?
>>40785963This is kind of how I want our character to grow.FMA Alchemy without the drawbacks.
>>40785975She isn't. She is thirdGokuAcerMapleKrillinChiChiIs how it goes I think
>>40785738Between the foresight and afterimages, Radish is already toast really.
>>40785912Chi-chi's Power Level is 971. Even SHE is a reasonable threat to Raditz at this point.>>40785975You're third strongest, just a little bit behind your brother. You actually gained the most out of this training, though.Thread will be able to decide on points fairly soon.
>>40785975still stronger than Krillin and probably Chi-chi, and its pretty close between us and our brother
>>40785885>>40786001>>40786031Hmm, let's do some more training to catch up once we make the wish.
>>40786069Lets be real here. Goku is probably always going to be first unless we get really lucky with dice. Zenkai and his own personality have a lot do with it.Then if we ever get to Z and transformations come into effect..it'll be tough to catch up.
>>40786069We need to come up with some original moves, CLOTHES BEAM is the closest thing we have.
>>40786027Are points that far in the future fixed to canon or are they changed a little to accomodate?
>>40786097I seriously doubt Maple would give up that easily.
>>40786123Oh I know. Just Saiyans are bullshit.We need more magic/power armor. We need the to BE the Gundam.
>>40786097You did manage to beat him one-on-one even while being a bit weaker. When you see these numbers, kind of think of them a bit more like total EXP. It may seem large, but unless you have the skills to back them up they might not be as great as they seem. Chi-chi, right now, could defeat Raditz if she tried hard enough.>>40786118You'll decide at the end of the thread.Writing...
>>40786106Maple can do more shit with magic tgen most others.She should get enchants eventually, buffs and maybe even elemental attacks.Freezing beams? Brobro has fire already
>>40786106Don't you mean the clothest thing we have?
>>40786196Har Har Har
>>40786097Honestly I'm a bit worried. We've broken a thousand but that's peanuts for what's to come. Unless we meta game hard and kill Goku so he can go learn the Kaioken I'm not sure how anyone will keep up.
>>40786150GUNDAM>>40786262We'll find a way and play it by ear, no use speculating.
King Piccolo is going to be a total Pushover, isn't he?
>>40786356Don't count him out. Kato has said we need to be careful no matter what.
>>40785354Slipping on your Scouter, the first thing you notice is just HOW strong you all have become. It wasn't apparent before since it felt more... natural, but... all of you except Chi-chi have hit over 1000. Goku is almost as strong as your teacher was. What's more, you are stronger than that 1030 Power Level you saw when you first came to Earth. You finally turn to Korin, who smiles at you and starts to glow slightly.Your jaw drops.Korin's Power Level is 2000.The cat man scratches his ear. "Surprised? Heh, they were too. I wasn't the only one that benefitted from their training, of course." Korin then lowers his Power Level back to 8. "And now, I think you can do this just as well. Try to... calm your body, keep all your energy internalized. You'll feel it soon enough."All of you do as Korin instructs, and you all manage it almost as well. It's almost like keeping a lock in your mind, holding all your strength in there. The lowest you all manage to lower yourselves is 15, but that's still quite something. "This is... amazing..." Chi-chi comments.Korin tosses each of you a Senzu Bean. "Good luck, kids." All of you rush over and hug him, Chi-chi scratching behind one of his ears and you behind another. "Aww stop, stop, you're embarrassing me."All five of you stand up. "Thank you, Master Korin." The five of you wave goodbye, all seven Dragon Balls in your possession, and make it to King Gurumes' castle. You see Penny, Suno, the restored King himself, and his guards waiting outside, another man standing by Penny. A soft glow and low hum seem to come from the Dragon Balls.>A. Who wants to do the honors?>B. Call the Eternal Dragon yourself>C. Something else?
>>40786377What's he gonna do, puke out a few hundred Tambourines? Because that's the only way I could see him winning at this point.
>>40786390>>A. Who wants to do the honors?Preference to Penny and Suno
>>40786390>>A. Who wants to do the honors?
>C. Ask Penny if she wants to do it.It's her wish after all.
>>40784825>"We'll never get the Dragon Ball with Whiskers the Wonder Cat outpacing us at every turn..." Acer grumbles.>Training you when you think you've already been trained - Whiskers the Wonder Cat
>>40786390>C. Ask Penny if she wants to do it.It's her wish after all.
>>40786406Pile up the minions and then Makankosappo for instance.
>>40786406Maybe he'll eat Kami, maybe he spent his time sealed getting swole, I wouldn't count him out
>>40786390>A. Who wants to do the honors?Also who are these "They" that Korin speaks of?
>>40786468Kami and Popo?
>>40786468It's Yajirobe.He has a PL of 3k, watch.He's going to go out and curbstomp Raditz, then he is going to solo Nappa when he shows up.
I'm feeling pretty confident right now, let's go fight Dr. Wheelo
>>407866103k wouldn't be enough to curbstomp Nappa. Though his sword can cut through saiyan armor, so that's gotta help
>>40786691I didn't say curbstomp Nappa, I said solo him.One is a slaughter, the other is a fight.
>>40786711He's still not wrong. Nappa's at 6k, there's a massive power differential there
>>40786749Nappa was 4kOr did they change that somewhere?
>>40786763Wait I thought he was 5k
Are we wearing weighted clothes?
>>40786749>>40786763>>40786780power levels in a nutshell
>>40786390"Who wants to do the honors? Penny?" you turn to the other redhead. "I mean, you were the one who wanted it."The other redhead approaches you, tears in her eyes. "Th-thank you, Maple..." She quickly hugs you, and then all your friends. "Thank you all, for everything you've done for us." She approaches the Dragon Balls, Goku carefully watching the Four-Star Ball. "E-Eternal Dragon, please, arise and grant our wish!"https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ym7yjhulJf8A vibrant flash comes from the Dragon Balls, and out springs forth the Dragon itself. It seems to almost fill the darkening skies... you may have caught a glimpse of it last year, but this... this is astounding. You never got such a clear view of the being, it's awe-inspiring."I AM SHENRON, THE ETERNAL DRAGON. SPEAK YOUR WISH, SO THAT I MAY RETURN TO MY SLUMBER."Penny seems to shrink back a bit at the creature's booming voice, but King Gurumes turns to her and nods approvingly. She takes a deep breath. "Sh-Shenron, please, I wish for you to restore this kingdom to its former beauty, and remove the cursed Blood Rubies from it so that they may never bother anyone ever again!""YOUR WISH SHALL BE GRANTED." Shenron's booming voice echoes through the area. You start to see greenery return to the land, the lake refilling with clear, clean water... and the blood-red stones all floating up out of the land. They rocket into space, hopefully never to be seen from again. "IT IS DONE. FAREWELL." Shenron glows again, then disappears in a flash, the Dragon Balls floating into the air. Right as they're about to fly off, Goku jumps up and catches the Four-Star Dragon Ball, presenting it to you happily as it turns to stone. You and your friends all start to cheer at a job well done, and with his grandpa's Dragon Ball in his possession, you feel a bit relieved.>A. Regroup at Kame House, tell them all what happened>B. Bring everyone to meet Baba, contact Bulma over your Scouter>C. Something else?
>>40786867>>A. Regroup at Kame House, tell them all what happened
>>40786867>A. Regroup at Kame House, tell them all what happened
>>40786806Well for Nappa it's because there are a thousand different things saying what his was.According to one source it was 7kAnother says 4kA third says 4800.So take your pick, pretty sure two of them were from vidya, though.
>>40786867>A. Regroup at Kame House, tell them all what happenedI half expected the ball to fly off with Goku still holding onto it.
>>40786867>B. Bring everyone to meet Baba, contact Bulma over your Scoute
>>40786406He's still a pretty accomplished demonic sorcerer person. He's pretty much an evil version of Kami, though he has less raw strength.
>>40786867All of you and your friends head off to Kame House, waving goodbye to Penny, Suno, and everyone else there. Krillin and Chi-chi are overjoyed, Goku smiles at his Dragon Ball sweetly, and Acer is doing little spins in the air. In less than a week, you've stopped Pilaf's ambitions, helped Gurumes learn his lesson, met new friends and faced new foes, and got a really good deal on 3 used camels. It's been an amazing, wonderful time. As all of you arrive, Roshi looks at your group proudly."Maple, Goku, you two have already more than earned this title, but I think that it bears repeating: you two truly are Turtle School Masters." he says with a tear rolling down his cheek, then looks at the other three. "But you are not alone there. Acer, Krillin, Chi-chi, I declare the three of you Turtle School Masters as well. I am ever so proud of what you have become."All of you bow, then give a simultaneous "Thank you, Master Roshi." in return."I guess I have my work cut out for me. I'll train my hardest for the next Tournament in three years, and I hope to see you all there!" Yamcha says as he gives each of you a little fist bump."Heh, don't forget about me." the blonde Launch mentions, cracking her knuckles. "You kids better be there, or I'll come draggin' you all to make sure of it!"You smile. "It's a promise."https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jSTdqvea_K8>YOU HAVE COMPLETED THE FIFTH SOCIAL LINK WITH CHI-CHI>YOU HAVE COMPLETED THE FIFTH SOCIAL LINK WITH KRILLIN>DRAGON BALL TUFFLE QUEST #15 END>Twitter account is @KatoQm, will have status updates there>Got some questions for the QM? Characters? Suggestions? Throw them at ask.fm/QMKato and I'll try to answer them as best I canThanks for playing, everyone! I'll be here like usual, so feel free to throw your questions here as well. Did ya'll have fun today?
>>40787350Thanks for the run boss.
>>40787350This quest is always fun. It's like Rugrats but the baby adventures are real.
>>40787350Question: can we use CLOTHES BEAM to make weighted clothes?
>>40787350Are we gonna assign those stat thingys?
>>40787350>>YOU HAVE COMPLETED THE FIFTH SOCIAL LINK WITH CHI-CHI>>YOU HAVE COMPLETED THE FIFTH SOCIAL LINK WITH KRILLINI don't remember doing all that much with them.
>>40787375>>40787394Thanks for playing! It's been fun writing the more kiddish dialogue, but eventually you're gonna have to grow. Who knows what kinds of wacky schemes you'll get up to then?>>40787398You already did that for Krillin and Chi-chi once under training with Roshi.>>40787499It's been more of a culmination of all the time you've spent together recently. Really pushed you and brobro into "best friend" territory with them.>>40787427Indeed!After the level up, current stats are:HP: [11/11]Ki: [o][o][o][o][o]Stamina: [o][o][o][o][o]Melee: [+][+][+][+]Energy: [+][+][+][+][+]Ya'll have 3 extra points to spend. QM's suggestion: more HP would be good.
>>40787499The day of training together, helped, along with a bunch of minor stuff I think.>>40787350I guess Baba next, then spending some time teaching Yamcha, launch and a few others some things, then more adventures!I wonder who trained Korrin, was it Kami, or did they go to King-Kai due to all the weird shit converging even harder on Earth?
>>40787627Ki, Melee and Energy?
>>407876271 HP 1 Ki 1 Energy
>>407876272 HP1 MeleeI'll follow your advice
>>40787627Two in health, one in meele?
>>40787627For the [o] in Ki and Stamina, does that mean that we have 0 points in those stats?Do the [+] represent 1 point in each of those categories?
>>407876272hp1kiKi is also used for magic stuff I think.
>>40787627Two into Ki, one into Energy. Let's min/max this bitch.
>>40787661>>40787656>making a balanced characterYOU FOOLS
>>40787627Are Tuffles less strong potentially than humans because of their stunted height, or are they all short because of Plant's 10x gravity?
>>40787627HP and Energy/Ki. What's the difference between Energy and Ki? I thought they were the same?
>>40787684fuck it seconding
>>40787743Seeing as how Energy is grouped up with Melee, I think it means the strength of energy attacks that we do.In DBXV terms, it would probably be equivalent to the Ki Blast Super/Special stat.
>>40787627Hp,melee and energy
>>40787627Stamina and Ki so we can Kicoho
>>40787636King Kai has taken notice of the Earth, and might be meeting with some of its deceased fighters to see how things have been.>>40787677The [o] dot means you can expend one decently powerful energy attack per dot, before needing to rest and recover. So one Geist Magnum, one Kamehameha, one Ki Jan Ken, one Will 'O Wisp, etc. For stamina, it's how many straining actions you can take in combat before needing to rest, like abusing the afterimage technique. There are also other skills that depend on stamina, you might see them soon-ish.The [+] represents how strong the respective attack is, either melee or energy. Influences the DC quite a bit when you're facing an opponent of similar skill level, and how hard you hit when you clear it.>>40787704Average Tuffles have marginally better potential than the average human. Planet's gravity influenced their height. Average Tuffle's PL was only around 25 - 50 or so, few notable ones broke 100.>>40787743>>40787763basically this, yeahOh, also, since you've got enough Ki for it now, you have the potential for developing a new Ultimate move, draining a large amount of Ki but also doing massive damage if you pass the DC. Just throwing that out there.
>>40787910Full Ki blast support sounds like it could be fun>Charge Kamehameha while Goku is fighting the bad guy and wait for the right moment to unleash it>Fire Tri-Beams at the bad guy to pin him while Goku recoversIf we build our party right power levels might not matter.
>>407879431 HP1 Ki1 Energy then pls
We defeated all the bad guys without killing any of them!
>>40788002Good, its still Dragonball after all.
>>40788002Count Chocula is fucking dead, pretty sure Goku vaporized him.
>>40788026He was already dead, vampires are weird like that.
>>40788047Omae wa mou shindeiru
>>40787990But we do a lot of melee so far. It's like our go-to thing.
>>40787943>King Kai has taken notice of the Earth, and might be meeting with some of its deceased fighters to see how things have been.So probably Gohan and um? Can't think of too many others.He may have a talk with Izumi though.Train Gohan up a bit so he is a challenge when he faces Goku then.
>>40788152Yeah. Also we use a lot of magic shit, and that was confirmed to be powered by Ki.
>>40788161>>40788181min/maxing is the only way to git gud, we have to choose one or risk getting destroyed by the power creep>>40788161Master Mutaito?
>>40788181So two-pump-chumping it with HP, Melee, and Ki?
>>40788228Melee and Ki? That's not a good idea. In layman's terms, Ki powers Energy, and Stamina powers Melee. So we should either choose Ki/Energy, or Stamina/Melee. Ki/Energy is the better choice as they're already higher than Stamina/Melee and we have more moves revolving around them
>>40788270And our race is supposedly worse with melee
>>40786155>You'll decide at the end of the thread.?
>>40788270Right, we do know a lot more magic and energy stuff than we do melee. We don't know stuff like Wolf Fang Fist, and the only technique we really have down is Rock Paper Scissors.
Most popular results so far seem to be HP, Ki, and Energy. Is this agreeable? Note that Clothes Beam, when used as an offensive tool, uses a dot of Ki.>>40788161That's one possibility. If so, he might have some tricks up his sleeves.>>40788226Another possibility, he was one of the strongest humans around in the King Piccolo era.
Oi, Roshi, u lil shit.When are you going to explain the principle about 100% FULL POWER mode to the kiddies?No better way to get swole than to channel Ki to your EVERYTHING.
>>40788327Id prefer going 2 ki 1 energybut sure
>>40788327>Is this agreeable?Cool with me.
>>40788327Yes, let's go with that. >>40788362Same but a little more HP isn't a bad idea
>>40788362>>40788382Kato suggested HP for a reason, I am willing to trust her and say it'll be a good idea.
>>40788327I'm okay with it.
>>40788362Reminder that Saiyans have huge physical capabilities. This includes their endurance.Always have a little bit of extra health, just in case you do end up being forced to slug it out.No offense, namekians.
If someone who's already dead used the Evil Containment Wave, what would happen?Asking because if we've got King Kai talking to people like Mutaito, this might be a possibility
>>40788391Nah, we should have a dramatic death at King Piccolo's hands so that Goku will get the pain of loss.
>>40788434And then off to King Kai's almost a decade early? RIP veggie.
>>40788425I begrudgingly accept that having and extra hitpoint is a good idea.also where the fuck is Yajirobe, I was expecting a encounter with that fat piece of shit.
>>40788454Didn't King Kai's training take piccolo from like, a couple ten thousands up to 800k?In the span of a few months?OP Need nerf nao.
>>40788454Nah, Kami doesn't know us well enough for that.
>>40788496And in the end he was still fucking useless.
>>40788496I took him from a couple of thousands to something, then he could barely fight Frieza's 1,000,000 form.
>>40788513He did pretty well against Freeza
>>40788513He made Frieza go all the way to his final form>>40788496>>40788523Most of the power came from the fusion with Nail, Namekian fusion increases the total power of the two involves, that's why it's forbidden
>>40788573>He made Frieza go all the way to his third formFTFY
>>40788345The problem with the form is that it turns you hella slow. It's useful against stationary targets, like mountains or moons. At least ones that can't fight back.>>40788425Space Monkeys OP in regular terms. But they lack one thing: the ability to make fashionable outfits at a whim. Therefore obviously Maple is the better fighter here.>>40788426Recall that the pass only lasts for 1 day. Also, might not work on him with... what I have planned.>>40788434>dramatic death at King Piccolo's hands so that Goku will get the pain of loss.Should I be worried about ya'll sabotaging yourselves in the battle just to make Goku go blonde?Also making it official: HP, Ki, and Energy
>>40788573>Most of the power came from the fusion with Nail, Namekian fusion increases the total power of the two involves, that's why it's forbiddenNail had something like 40k, Piccolo had around 800k, the fusion put him up to 1 million ish.Also OP, also needs a nerf, now.He had 5k ish PL when he fought Nappa, and had 800k when he came back from KKai
>>40788603dude, it's been literally years since I watched it, cut me some slack.
>>40788648He trained for like three months and became stronger than literal gods
>>40788648I cut you some slack by correcting the misinformation you were spreading, so back up.
>>40788616>The problem with the form is that it turns you hella slowJust like the super duper saiyan mode that Trunks and Vegeta get, but slower.But it does let someone do the 100% Kamehameha wave. Which is broken as fuck. And I assume it can curve and move just like the regular version if you know how to do it.Sounds quite nice.
>>40788677He didn't even train, he just meditated the entire time
>>40788616>Should I be worried about ya'll sabotaging yourselves in the battle just to make Goku go blonde?No we are joking
>>40788717>thinking that brain training is uselessNigga wut? Errybody knows the stremf comes from within! Mind over matter!
>>40788717He meditated in 30x gravity.
>>40788616>Should I be worried about ya'll sabotaging yourselves in the battle just to make Goku go blonde?Nah. I get the feeling that King Piccolo is too savvy to draw out a fight as excessively long as Frieza did anyway.
>>40788717FUCKING CHRIST THATS EVEN WORSE THAN I THOUGHT
>>40788616Worried? No. Prepared? Maybe.
>>40788727speak for yourself
>>40788790Doing otherwise would be extremely metagamey which is kinda annoying.
>>40788770Depends if you watch the original or Kai.In the original dub of DBZ, it's implied that he didn't do much of anything.But in Kai, it is explicitly said that King Kai trained him.
>>40788829Never had a firm power level stated, even in games or shit.I just assumed he got to like 50k or so and the fusion super charged them both.His fusion with Kami super charged him seriously too.That is why the fusion was a holy shit power level jump for him.
>>40788638>800k pre-fusioncannot find a single source on that number, where'd you find it?
>>40788897Well, I don't want to disagree, but this says otherwise. Of course, shitty wiki, so who knows.>Even just upon being born Piccolo was a great fighter, as he had access to all of King Piccolo's memories and techiques. His power in early Dragon Ball Z is 322, and without his weighted clothing it is 408. A year later, during the battle against the Saiyans, his held back power level is 1,400 (1,220 in the manga) and 3,500 while fighting Nappa. According to Dragon Ball Z: The Anime Adventure Game, his power is 800,000 after training with King Kai and it is 1,200,000 after he had fused with Nail (which is around Second Form Frieza's power level of about 1,000,000), it also states that his power is 2,000,000 during the Garlic Jr. Saga. Turles' reads Piccolo's power level at 18,000 in The Tree of Might.>In Daizenshuu 7, Piccolo's biography states that after fusing with Nail, their combined power level is "Over 1,000,000" and is enough to defeat Frieza's 2nd form (who stated in both manga & anime to be over 1 million himself).
>>40788978Well, A lot of the video game sources are out there, then again a lot of power levels were made up by game designers, magazine editors and guide book writers. Even promo material from the movies almost never has the authors work from it.That is one of the reason so many power levels listed are all over the place.The truest source is always the manga, but he rarely used power levels due to how crappy they turned out to be.
>>40788978Wait a minute, Lord Slug's baddies were up in the hundred thousands?
>>40789019Slug himself is 160k, but he's the only one that high

>>40786155>You'll decide at the end of the thread.We're past the bump limit Kato. This is as "end of the thread" as you can get
>>40789686>>40788616>Also making it official: HP, Ki, and Energy
>>40789686Misunderstood, apologiesSome events are fixed. Some will differ greatly, due to your influence. Goku's brobro will show up looking for him eventually.
Thanks for the archive!Also I have my normal work schedule for the rest of the week, so expect the next thread on Friday, usual time.
>>40789849>Some events are fixed. Some will differ greatly, due to your influence. Goku's brobro will show up looking for him eventually.Anything to do with Earth time line is screwed up, anything extra-solar is fixed currently.
>>40790177More or less, yes. Jaco however is doing some work around the galaxy, and the Galactic Patrol are slightly more aware of what's going on down there. He kind of wants to make sure that things are hush-hush about Tuffle survivors, at least until they have some way of helping you out in an actually useful manner.Jaco also fought Onio, who was trying to acquire one of the Black Star Dragon Balls. Thankfully nobody knows nor cares about Onio enough to pursue what he's up to.
>>40790373So what are Black Star Dragon Balls? Is their origin Namek, or Earth?
>>40790487For the set out in space, neither, though a powerful Namekian was responsible for their creation.
>>40790610Makes me wonder, was the powerful namekian the nameless namekian? He was of that weird whatsitwhosits that made dragon balls, and he apparently had power out the fucking wazoo. Didn't he spit out Kami initially? I forget these things.
>>40788002What about Pilaf's flying fortress?
>>40790373Thankful to Jaco for realizing that keeping truffle survivors hidden, don't want Vegetta to show up and finish what his father started. He would find it a personal affront.>>40790658Nameless was Kami's original form. He split himself to Kami and Piccolo.Probably some other Namekian, like someone on Lord Slugs power level.Really want to know set them up.
>>40790487They're something GT didI always thought they were dumb. What's the point of having them scatter all over the universe and if they're not collected in a year the earth blows up?
>>40790698>Probably some other Namekian, like someone on Lord Slugs power level.>In the video game Dragon Ball Z: Supersonic Warriors, when Piccolo unifies with King Piccolo as the full Nameless Namek and thus gains his full potential, his power skyrockets to become so high that Piccolo states a fight against the fat Majin Buu would be an "easy win", and Super Buu states that even with weighted clothing on, Piccolo is stronger than he is. If you trust vidya, that is WAY past Slug's level.Plus, Piccolo after fusing with Kami is massively more powerful than Slug, as well, IIRC.So I think the Nameless Namekian was probably ridiculously strong.
>>40790658>>40790698>>40790699This is correct. Katas, the genius Namek and father of the person who would become King Piccolo and Kami, sent his son off Namek via spaceship. The Black Star Dragon Balls are not an invention of a good Namekian, they're objects constructed by one who either has no idea what they're doing, or complete idea what they're doing and going through with it anyway.Jaco realizes the danger that you two might be in if word gets out, and also wants to keep the potential for a lawsuit against the PTO for stealing your people's technology becomes a thing.Perhaps this is a potential future.
>>40790788Unknown then. Probably crazy powerful, Frezia or higher.Might be someone almost dead, or stuck in statis or something.Might be just a legacy set too.
>>40790699To have the gang go on fun adventures like in the early Dragon Ball days.Naturally, Toei dropped the ball with it.
>>40790699>they're not collected in a year the earth blows up?Well, it destroys any planet they are used on, it's the price of using them.It would make sense that not every wish granting thing would be free.
>>40790699Hey, GT wasn't all bad, it had Destructo Disc Spinning and Surfing.
>>40790832>>40790838So I guess there is either some bumblefuck old namekian out there, or his "kids" who are more broken than Broly? And they can make planet cracking wish machines?Well fuck
>>40790658The Nameless Namekian was the one who split to form Kami and King Piccolo. Kami was the good side, King Piccolo was everything evil in him. It's not clear how powerful he was.In one DBZ game where a Piccolo-focused story was featured, Piccolo (post-android saga) had to go to hell and defeat his father King Piccolo so he could get more power via fusing with him. This returned the Nameless Namekian to his complete state, since the Piccolo/Kami fusion was in actuality Piccolo Jr./Kami fused together. With the Nameless Namekian complete, he was able to fight evenly with Super Buu, but wasn't able to destroy him. So he just Mafuuba'd his ass and kept him in a safe place.
>>40790988>Nameless Namekian overshadowed Frieza in power by leagues>Beerus and Whis make no comment on him, nor anyone elseWell, I guess it's cause vidya. Sadly not canon.
>>40791051No anon EVERTHING is canon in Dragon balljust in different universesHell THIS is technically canon
>>40791051he trained for like 36 years, they may of just missed his power level. Or he never went make power.Also, from the sounds of it Piccolo may of been quite a bit stronger as a base, with the intense training. May of only had power levels in the tens of millions.
>>40791092Hah, until Crazy Hassan shows up at my door and sells me a "canon camel" I won't buy any of that sh-Nevermind, I now have four camels and strangely goat-like camel.They are canon.
>>40791115Just hope that Crazy Hassan does not show up at capsule corp.He will start talking to Mr Briefs, share a few drinks and next thing you know he leaves and starts selling Super Camel's with Special Capsule Corp Desert Outfit Kits.
>>40791220>implying he wont sell those to Dr. Briefs, who then reverse engineers and breeds them >Crazy Hassan then inexplicably shows up with a better versionAnd the cycle continues.
>>40791264CRAAAZY HASSAN GIVE YOU GREAT DEAL ON LEGENDARY SUPER CAMEL, VERY GOOD PRICE YESCOME ONLY ONCE EVERY THOUSAND YEARI THROW IN EXTRA USED CAMEL, MAKE DEAL EVEN BETTER
>>40791304>CAMELS HAVE BEEN UNDERGOING SPECIAL EXERCISE SESSIONS! >NOW IN STORE FOR LIMITED TIME, ASCENDED SUPER CAMEL! BUT FOR EASE OF SPEAKING YOU CAN JUST CALL THEM SUPER CAMEL TWO!>NONO THEY ARE FREE! TAKE THEM! LOYAL CUSTOMERS DESERVE LOYALTY REWARDS!
>>40791364SUPER CAMEL GOD SUPER CAMEL
>>40791416I don't think even Hassan is that Crazy.He doesn't need money as badly as those producers did, anyway.ZING!
>>40791464HASSAN MAY BE CRAZY LIKE FOX, HOWEVER HASSAN NOT STUPID TO FALSE ADVERTISE!TRUE SUPER CAMELS FOR SALE!GOOD PRICE, SURVIVE WELL IN DESERT!BETTER THEN NORMAL CAMEL, WHO ALREADY SURVIVE GOOD IN DESERT!
>>40791491I just want to see Crazy Hassan flip out when someone tries to either steal a camel, or refuse a camel for too long.>His PL is 500,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,001
>>40787627I'm probably too late for my vote to count, but I'm thinking a dot of Energy, a dot of Ki, and a dot of HP.The idea is that, rather than spread ourselves out evenly between being punchy and being blasty, we pick one to specialise in.
>>40791607You win!>>40788616>Also making it official: HP, Ki, and Energy
>>40791607The way I see it is that Maple will turn out to be more energy inclined, along the lines of Roshi and magic like Baba.But Acer will be more physical, like Hercule (oh sweet fuck, why?) or Bardock.
>>40791646>comparing anything to HerculeThat's why.Fuck you, Satan! You can't fly you piece of shit! But as far as martial artists go, he is top fuckin notch.
>>40791659>You can't fly you piece of shit!Not if we find him early. One of sidegoals I got is to make him relevant early on, if only just a little.
>>40791687By the time we find or hear of him, he'll probably have Ki-TSD already.So I doubt it.
>>40791630Currently you are more inclined towards energy, though you do have some decent physical combos and moves (namely the Hallowed Rush).>>40791711Keep an eye open before the 23rd Tournament, maybe.
>>40791838>Keep an eye open before the 23rd Tournament, maybe.It may not even happen. Tao has a blistering hatred for Turtle School now.
So that's added to the list of things we can do.1. Learn the cutting Ki move that Chi-chi uses. Trade her Ki Jan Ken for it.2. Investigate Crane school. Encounter Mercenary Tao after training for 4 days, Shen, Tien, Chiaotzu. Trade Phantom Shotgun to someone for Dodon Ray.2b. Screw with Dodon ray, Chichi's Crescent Cutter, and the Phantom Shotgun to get a quickly fired close ranged cutting attack.3. Investigate the "higher ups" Korin mentioned. Learn how the barrier works, and see if we can replicate it or create some barriers of our own.4. Hang around with Bulma, get some FUKKENSCIENCE done. Don't know exactly how. Just fukken science. Like, can we store extra Ki in a capsule somehow and then use it as either a Ki grenade or a mana potion? Probably not but worth trying.5. Explore world for OC Donut Steels for more teaching of magic.5b. Read more of those magic books we got from the vampire and demon's place. Might be able to understand it better now that we've got some practice in.6. Make an ultimate attack.I'd recommend a move where Maple infuses herself with energy as she flies/charges forward. Getting faster, but less manoeverable, as the energy charges up - before colliding with an enemy, and releasing the energy in a huge burst. Sort of like being at the epicenter of a moving Kamehameha wave.Would be good for those inevitable "Oh shit! An enemy is on the other side of the city / planet / galaxy / DM fiat and you GOTTA GO FAST to reach them before all your friends die" situations. Also good for escape too, since you can also GOTTA GO FAST away from a shitty situation.Carries with it the downsides - you're being carried along with a massive energy wave, so you get less manoeverable the stronger it gets.If you don't have a lot of distance to cover before hitting the target, you won't be able to charge the attack very well.And of course pointblank energy waves damage you half as hard as they damage the target.
>>40792002Also need to talk about more adventures, and visiting nice lady that goku met.Sounds like interesting adventures there, also she is likely an accomplished mage.Kato was interested in an idea of her being a replacement guardian for Kami. Maybe Kami ends up training her eventually?
>>40792027She isn't a steel donut?
>>40792156Import from Journey to the West.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xuanzang_%28character%29Take it as you will.
>>40792002Crane School isn't as static as Roshi's, so it will be a bit harder to find them. At the same time, be wary of strange people selling their services as "monster hunters."There's also Yamcha's Spirit Ball technique, or something like it. Perhaps something closer to Funnels that you develop on your own?An ultimate move would be something like the Super Kamehameha Goku invents by the 23rd World Martial Arts Tournament, or the Special Beam Cannon. Things like that.>>40792027>>40792156>>40792170I'm still looking at things I can do with her. Hopefully it's something interesting enough to warrant a little adventure all on its own. Perhaps something involving a different "Demon King."
>>40792209Shura.Where in Dragon Ball filler, Goku rescues another red head.Anything to do with demons works well, there are multiple demon tribes and realms on dragon ball earth.
>>40792248Do note that he was one of the few characters in filler that Goku was severely outclassed by. That should give you an indication as to how tough he might be if you ever face him.
>>40792209Mira, Dabura, Shura, King Piccolo...It'll be Monday Maou Madness.
>>40792291Yeah, and trip is noted to need protection too. Sounds like a good job to do.
Thread is sinking, see you all next time.
>>40792311Throw shrine maidens at it until the problem fixes itself.
