>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: Maple and friends trained with Master Korin in the attempt to get the final Dragon Ball and have Penny's land restored to its former beauty. With their hunt for the Dragon Balls at an end, they've returned to Kame House for some celebrations.
>>40837244https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FgwVaqN0QxkWhile at Kame House, the blue-haired Launch prepares you all a congratulatory meal while Krillin and Yamcha chat with each other, Yamcha mostly asking for tips in regards to the training he'll be getting. Bulma talks with Goku and Acer for a little bit, while Chi-chi, Turtle, and Baby Gamera play around for a little while. Honestly, given all that's happened recently, it feels like forever since you all had some time to really just... act like kids. Well, relatively speaking. You end up playing with her and the turtles, eventually resulting in a friendly bit of tag between you, Chi-chi, and Baby Gamera. Master Roshi was busy watching his... programs, but seemed to at least be enjoying the company.After the meal, Roshi asks to see you and your brother privately for a moment. As the three of you head outside, the old man is quiet for a moment, almost lost in thought. Finally, he speaks, "Kids, I must say, I'm incredibly proud of you two, given where you've come from, what you've been through. You..." he stops, and chuckles. "...I must say, you've passed and surpassed my style with flying colors." The Turtle Hermit turns to you and your brother and stays silent for a while. "I can live for a long, long time, kids. But my prime is gone. Turtle School will one day need a new teacher.""Y-you mean us? I mean, I'm flattered, but..." Acer scratches the back of his head. "Goku, Chi-chi, Krillin, they're all just as good as we are. Is there something more to this?" He's apparently not been trying to read the old man's mind, out of respect."Maple, Acer. I know your situation is... a unique one, but... well, technically, you two are orphans." Roshi clears his throat. "So I'd like to formally adopt the two of you.">A. This is sudden, why?>B. You're not so sure about this...>C. Agree to it without question>D. Something else?
>>40837269>>A. This is sudden, why?Oh, didn't expect that.
>>40837269>A. This is sudden, why?
>>40837269>>A. This is sudden, why?I do want to say yes though.
>>40837269>A. This is sudden, why?I wanna say yes, but Içd like to know why.
>>40837269That kinda caught you off-guard. Roshi? Adopt you and brobro? You scratch the top of your head a little. "Er... this is sudden, Master. Can you explain a bit why?""Not reading my mind, heh. Thanks." Roshi leans on his staff. "In all honesty, I feel it would make things easier for you two. Neither of you really have a home to go back to, as much as you have spent with me or my sister. Even Goku still has Gohan's little home, as his legal grandson.""Ah... I see." your brother frowns a little, eyes turning to the ground."Plus it would make things easier when you kids get citizen's licenses. Don't want anyone demanding things like birth certificates that you don't have." the old man chuckles heartily. He stops, however, looking back at the place with everyone inside it, Turtle and Baby Gamera restin near the TV. "And in the event that I pass on... well, hopefully a long time from now... Kame House-""I think I understand, Master." you halt him. Well, that's certainly something to think about. You might find this agreement acceptable, it's certainly got some logic to it.>A. Agree to it>B. You'd rather not...>C. Something else?
>>40837662>>A. Agree to itYeah sure.
>>40837662>A. Agree to it
>>40837662>A. Agree to itWell, he can't be any worse than Ghost Dad, that's for sure.
>>40837662>>A. Agree to it
>>40837795He may be a perve, but he as shown is a real father figure to goku and others in the show, and here.
>>40837662You look at your brother. The two of you smile at each other, then towards Master Roshi, nodding. "You might be a silly old pervert sometimes, Master, but we're not gonna hold that against you. Still better than ghost dad was.""Heh! I know, I know." he starts chuckling. "Thanks, kids." The three of you hug, the old man with a warm, comforting smile on his face."We're not gonna have to like, change our names or anything, are we?" Acer questions, elbowing Roshi in the arm. The three of you head inside again, Bulma looking at your Scouters."Ah, good timing, I was thinking about what you two were saying about the Scouters glitching out. Apparently they're not designed to handle such dramatic increases, hence the errors. I might be able to help you two out a bit, after I'm done with some of my other projects." the purple-haired woman says, turning her head to the Pirate Robot. "It's a good thing your devices are so well-designed, or else such sudden increases might've caused them to explode.""Hah, these are the genuine article, not some cheap space monkey knockoffs." your brother tells her, Goku and Chi-chi giggling at the comment. "Still though, that sounds like a good idea, we'll have to get around to it some time."After a while, topic of conversation turns to Yamcha and Launch as Turtle School students, and what you and your brother promised to them. You could try something today, or you could help them another time, since you still should check in with Baba. Choices...>A. Help Yamcha become a "Newtype" in exchange for learning the controlled Ki attack>B. Try and help the two Launches learn telepathy>C. Check in with Baba, you can help later>D. Something else?
>>40838142>>C. Check in with Baba, you can help laterLike she said, we can always do it later. Baba needs a SITREP.
>>40838142>C. Check in with Baba, you can help later
>>40838142>C. Check in with Baba, you can help laterThen>B. Try and help the two Launches learn telepathy
>>40838142>>C. Check in with Baba, you can help laterFirst baba then the others.
>>40838142You and brobro decide to give Baba the rundown of what happened, telling your friends that you'd be back in a while. Shouldn't take that long. As you fly off, you try to contact her, but are... told by that creepy pink ghost that she's busy at the moment. You didn't know that was possible. Well, more proof that there's more to learn out there. Upon arriving, you see her shouting with an old man."Your so-called fighters lost their matches and you don't have the money to pay! Now leave before- ah, Maple, Acer, excellent timing." Baba approaches you."What's wrong? Customer not liking your service?" you ask her."This gentleman won't take 'no' for an answer." Baba points at the individual. He's balding on the top but appears to have compensated for that with long, white hair, a mustache of similar color, dressed in dark pants and a white shirt with an orange vest over it. He looks at the two of you, glaring like you'd done something to him before."Hmnh. Fine. But this isn't the last you will hear from me, Fortuneteller. Perhaps I will find a way that doesn't require your outrageous services." he storms off, tossing a Capsule out which turns into a plane and hopping inside it. You notice Fangs sticking his tongue out at him as he leaves.>A. Ask what his problem was>B. Inform Baba that your mission was a success>C. Something else?
>>40838692>C. Something else?KILL HIM, KILL HIM NOW.Nah I'm just kidding.>>A. Ask what his problem was>>B. Inform Baba that your mission was a success
>>40838692>>A. Ask what his problem was>>B. Inform Baba that your mission was a success>>C. Something else?Did we do something to him? He looked at us in a way that if he had eye beams we would be charcoal.
>>40838692>A. Ask what his problem was>B. Inform Baba that your mission was a success
>>40838692"Miss Baba, we've completed our tasks!" you tell her with some pride in your voice. "Pilaf is dealt with, Gurumes learned his lesson, and Goku even got to keep his grandpa's Dragon Ball!"She pats you on the head. "Excellent work, Maple, Acer. Spike, would you mind?" She directs her voice to her building. The devil-man comes out with two tall hats, somewhat like Baba's, though lighter in color, one with a bluer tint to it, the other with a redder tint. "It isn't much, but these signify that you have passed. Your training under me has progressed to such a point that I feel like you two have earned it."You take the blue hat, ecstatic expression on your face. You immediately put it on and make a little pose. Though, your mind turns to the person who left. "What was HIS problem? Did we like... do something to him? He looked at us in a way that if he had eye beams we would be charcoal. Like this, pew pew, pchoo!" You put your hands to your eyes and make laser noises for half a minute. Acer looks at you like your new hat is on too tight."In a way..." Baba looks in the direction he left. "That man is Doctor Gero. Former head Scientist of the Red Ribbon Army. You defeated his best creations."...more Dumb Name Army. Really. And you just got done with cleaning up the mess they made.>A. Should we go after him?>B. Let 'em go, there's not much he can do now>C. Something else?
>>40839091>A. Should we go after him?Go after him before he can cause more problems.Dumb Name Army just won't quit, might as well stop it before it starts.
>>40839091>A.Auntie Baba, should we go after him?
>>40839091>A. Should we go after him?He could cause all sorts of trouble if we leave him alone. You can never underestimate what a sciencey-type people can do when driven by a thirst for revenge.
>>40839091>>C. Something else?Has he done anything wrong, so that we should go after him?
>>40839315He did send one of his creations after you directly a couple threads back, so...
>>40839388I thought that wa under pilafs orders. Granted catching him and toss him in jail at the capsule corp cities police may work.>MFW I just realized that Goku after Trunks warning could have just gone to baba for a shot to locate Gero.
>>40839490Baba, Dragon Balls, etc.They decided not to because face-punching.Writing...
>>40839490Akira probably forgot who Baba was until Buu saga.
>>40839091"Should we go after him, Auntie Baba?"The old woman chuckles as you call her that. "So he finally asked. Hah." You her give a cheeky grin."I mean, he could cause all sorts of trouble if we leave him alone. You can... never underestimate what a sciencey-type people can do when driven by a thirst for revenge..." you look down, kicking one of the little pebbles on the ground. "We should know.""I thank you two for your diligence." Baba nods."I'll go get 'em, sis, be back shortly." Acer comments, flying off. You're about to chase after him when Baba asks you something."Maple, I know what your goal is in about three years' time, but I feel like I must warn you. I have seen many omens about things to come, and I a sure you have felt them too, if more subtly. What will you and your brother be doing to prepare for what lies ahead?">A. Self improvement and training>B. Helping friends get stronger>C. Exploring the world a bit>D. Something else?Write-ins encouraged here.
>>40839791>A. Self improvement and training>B. Helping friends get stronger"Something big is on the horizon, we need as many people standing by our side as possible. Brobro and I are going to train hard, and we'll be encouraging our friends to get strong too."
>>40839791>>A. Self improvement and training>>B. Helping friends get stronger>>C. Exploring the world a bitWhy not all three. Like going on a World Tour with everyone along with lots of sparring/training along the way. Learn more about the world, make allies, and overall get stronger.
>>40839791Well, first we promised to help our friends learn a few things first.Then we want to explore the world more and meet interesting people. Goku met some lady, Trip that sounds interesting. Maybe he could introduce us.Of coarse we would be training during this time too. We have to get stronger, there is a lot out there that may bear down on everyone. Korrin warned of something like that too. Ghost Dad may not be the only threat.
>>40839791>A. Self improvement and training>B. Helping friends get stronger>C. Exploring the world a bit>D. Something else?Maybe try and help Bulma and her dad with getting humanity off the ground and into space? Maybe it's a bit selfish, but it'd be nice to try and see if there were any other Tuffles out there who escaped. Plus, we might be able to make some new friends who could help us out, like that Jaco dude. It'd be nice to have an inkling of what's going on in the galaxy too, since whatever happens out there may eventually come over to Earth.
>>40839791>I still wish to travel the world, get to know the planet I have adopted as my home. So, I shall travel the world for maybe a year with whoever wishes to join me. After that I'll train with my friends to make sure the world is safe.
>>40840011For clarification (catchpa ate part of the post at the end, damn it), it's mostly how you'll divide up your time. Prioritizing self improvement means you'll get stronger. Friends, they'll get stronger. Exploring, means more adventures and little sidequest things, more like what Goku did in canon. You can have all three and still get benefits for all, but won't get the maximum of each individually.I've got a lot of things planned in advance, just depends on if I need to use them all or if I need to come up with some new ones. Feel free to make whichever choices you want.
>>40840135Alright in that case I'll prioritize >B. Helping friends get strongerDB quests need more teamwork.
>>40840135I'd prioritize traveling the world
>>40840135I stand by A and B. The only Side Quest I'd really want to see happen is the one where we meet Trip or whatever the Journey To The West girl was that Goku met. After that, time to get swole.
>>40840135>B. Helping friends get stronger>C. Exploring the world a bitI'll cast my vote for helping everyone git gud and exploring, though prioritizing helping friends over adventures. Though it kinda sounds like both of those go hand-in-hand depending on who we take along. Plus, if you ever need filler, you can pad out the threads with posts describing each of our friends powering up and shouting for an hour!
>>40840220>"AAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!">"H-His power is incredible!">"HHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!">"What 3000!? There's no way that can be right!">"When did Krillin get so tall?"
>>40839791>C. Exploring the world a bit>B. Helping friends get strongerI don't think I wanna go super metagamey for this. And depending on what we find exploring the world could benefit us towards getting stronger more than training normally would.
>>40840322Yeah. Plus, who wants to just do a shitton of training when there's a whole world out there to explore? That's the whole allure of DB, you know? While there were elements of exploration and mystic stuff on Namek, it was all just about who could get the strongest in the shortest period of time after that.
>>40839791"Something big is on the horizon, we need as many people standing by our side as possible. Brobro and I are going to train for it, and we'll be encouraging our friends to get strong too. In fact, I think we'll focus on that. Plus we should probably see what the planet we've come to call home has in store, y' know. It's a big, wonderful world out there. Maybe check on Jaco again, when he's here. See what the galaxy's been up to." you tell Baba, adjusting your new hat a little. So cool."Is that so?" the old lady raises an eyebrow.You nod excitedly. "Definitely focus on our friends though." You skip around humming the theme of Yamcha's favorite show as your brother flies back. "That was quick.""Dropped him off at West City's Police Department. He was a wanted man, wasn't too hard to deal with 'em." Acer shrugs."Well brobro, we've got some promises to keep!" you punch your fist into the air. "To Kame House!" The two of you blitz off in the direction of the place you can truly call home now. Goku tells you he's gonna explore a little himself, Chi-chi saying she's going to meet up with her father again. Krillin says he's going to head off with Goku, then maybe do some exploring on his own. You turn to Yamcha and Launch. Time to get to training them.Pick one>A. Yamcha first>B. Launch firstAnd pick one>C. Help Bulma with some things, tech time>D. Start reading some more from your books>E. Try to develop a new, powerful but draining move>F. Something else?

Rolled 25, 53, 72 + 100 = 250 (3d100 + 100)>>40840695You start with helping Launch, and that starts with the priority of getting her to be able to, er, talk to herself. In exchange, Launch actually offers two things, one from her blonde side, one from her blue side. The first is more practical information, with her teaching you and your brother about habits of criminals, especially lower tier ones like scam artists and pickpockets. Useful, you guess. Interestingly, the blue-haired Launch actually starts teaching you and brobro how to cook. And not just cook, but cook well. Soon you and your brother almost catch up to her skills.At first teaching Launch telepathy seems like it's going nowhere, due to the two different personalities having to relearn things over and over when they switch. However, soon you and Acer learn that such a thing could be beneficial, as it starts to become apparent that the repetition strengthens it moreso than either seems to pick it up individually.After weeks of practice, between her own lessons with Roshi, she's finally able to do it. Launch and... er, Launch, have their first conversation together, without having to use something else as a medium between them. They're talking. To her amusement, the blonde Launch starts calling the other one "Blue." They realize that they are in fact both sort of are the same "person" but with two different "minds" that switch control. The sneezing is a sort of mental trigger, but one that might be able to be overcome, eventually.(cont.)
>>40841408Why contain it?
>>40841496When you aren't training Launch, you and brobro head over to Capsule Corp with Bulma. One thing that takes priority are the Scouters and the flaws in them. It takes a number of attempts, but eventually you and Bulma are able to overcome the error. Now all your Scouters can handle an increase in Power Level even greater than Korin's was, up to perhaps 10,000 or even higher. The Senzu Bean eludes Bulma, as while there are some mundane things to it, it's nearly impossible to replicate all of the effects, much less grow more without some very special soils and water.After all that is done, you...>A. Train Yamcha>B. Catch up on magic learning>C. Try to develop an Ultimate Move>D. Something else?Pick 2.
>>40841537>A. Train Yamcha>B. Catch up on magic learningWe really don't need an ass shattering super move just yet.

>>40841537>>A. Train Yamcha>>B. Catch up on magic learning
>>40841537Oh, rightalso, Blue Launch's base Power Level has jumped up to 257. Blondie's is even higher, but didn't get quite as much an increase.

Rolled 92, 56, 67 + 100 = 315 (3d100 + 100)>>40841537Yamcha, for as eager as he is to learn it, struggles with the foresight ability more than he thought he would. Still, he perseveres, and one day, during training with you..."Come on Yamcha, you've almost got this!" you shout as you fire another Geist Magnum at him, Yamcha struggling to dodge it while blindfolded. He's getting tired, really pushing his body to the limits. "Keep your focus, use your mind to see where it's coming from!""It'd be easier if I could see wh- YAH!" he dodges again, this time not sure how much more he could take."Your eyes won't help you, think about it, what if something came after Bulma and you couldn't see it?!" You prepare one more shot, taking aim. You fire... and you can feel it. You can almost hear it.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AjE3-RXvJYgYamcha sidesteps it effortlessly. He quickly removes his blindfold, trying to make sure that just happened. He looks at you, and you nod. Yamcha starts dancing and cheering. It took him quite a while, but did it. As you've been teaching Yamcha, you've also kept up your studies in Magic. Something that catches your eye is a thing related to the fire magic your brother learned: lightning magic. The spells are still as arcane, archaic, and confusing as ever, but you at least get a pattern down for what to expect from it. You might be able to use it like your brother did, with some practice.Before you can realize it, your birthday is coming up. October 31st, and you'll be 10 so soon...>A. Have the party at Kame House>B. Have the party at Capsule Corp>C. Somewhere else?

Looks like I got in late!We should totally have held out for being adopted by the Briefs family. Imagine being the heiress to THAT family fortune!
Soooo... Yamcha's Power Level has been pushed up to 477. Just FYI.
>>40842313Good, we'll need all hands on deck when the time comes.
>>40842313Are you gonna have soft caps for the humans?Just asking because i dont see a way one of human pals should be up to snuff with SSJ's, and the like, unless something happens that didnt happen in canon
>>40842407They can probably keep getting stronger, but yeah there is no way they can catch up to SSJ multipliers once we reach that point.
>>40842407Unless someone can handle something like a Kaioken x50, doubtful they could manage it on their own.Regardless, there are other ways to stay relevant, and that stuff should be a long way off from now.Writing...
>>40842407Well, until Tri-clops came into play, Tien was just a regular human, and using his tri-beam he was able to no-sell Cell for a while.Since Cell was apparently past SSJ level, it's reasonable to believe Tien had breached the double digits in the millions and was human still.Even still, maybe humans can just master Ki to such a degree that few other things can, and thus can punch well above their PL because of their ability to utilize Ki better.I dunno man, I'm not as inconsistent as Toriyama!
>>40842524Aw dude we're totally gonna have to figure out cool Dual Techs now.Like MAPLE SMASHing her enemy into the epicenter of Acer's Will O' Wisp,or Acer wrestling some dude long enough for Maple to pointblank it with a Phantom Shotgun.Or Goku conducting Maple's lightning strike with the Power Pole.Or hitting the Spirit Ball with the Geist Magnum to create a doubly-powerful explosion.
>>40842048You decide to throw your party at Kame House, and turn it into a sort of get-together. It's more how they functioned on Planet Plant anyway. It hadn't been that long since you last saw everyone, but it was still fairly nice to see them all again. Goku and Krillin told you about their adventures, in which they stopped a group who went by the names "Plague" and "Terror" from terrorizing a village with a magic gourd, which they present to you and your brother. While a thoughtful gesture, you can tell the thing doesn't have that good an aura to it. Also "Plague" and "Terror." Really. Those are some of the dumbest names. Goku and Krillin also helped a man save his dojo from a greedy rival school.Chi-chi ended up exploring the ruins of a castle in the desert closest to her home, which she was shocked to discover was Pilaf's old place before his floating death fortress. She apparently got the rather expensive-looking bed for you and brobro as a gift, and a painting of Shenron. Strange that Pilaf had such a thing.Launch cooked you a fantastic meal, while Bulma got you and your brother tickets to Dream Land, an amusement park in her city. Roshi got you two a rather funny fake beard and set of glasses. Finally, Yamcha made good on his promise and doubled the offer, first teaching you his Wolf Fang Fist and then showing you how his Spirit Ball works.>A. Take Yamcha's "present" as-is, Spirit Ball>B.

>>40843572>>40843549>>40843608Alright see these. We'll make them out of Ki and have them either surround us or go out and surround an opponent where they will keep beam spamming them with Dodon Ray/Geist Magnum Equivalents.
>>40843646I didnt know what kind of attack it was but if its like pic related IM SO FUCKING DOWN
>>40843646Not all that energy efficient, but good for catching an enemy off guard, making them flinch, or dividing their attention.Also really good at mook clearing, assuming you don't simply want to drop a Kamehameha on the mooks (e.g. they have hostages, or you want to loot some of their stuff and it'd get blown up if you Kame them)
>>40843572Im imagining it looks like lingering wills' plasma drones from KH2FM except blueFuck you that game is great/spoiler]Can't seem to find an image of it though.
>>40843046Using what you learned, you decide to take things up a notch. Instead of focusing ki into your hand, or even hands, you move it to your back, right near your shoulders. About a centimeter above your clothes two spheres form, smaller than the Spirit Ball, but with about the same amount of energy put into them. You fly up with them following, then start directing them around, maneuvering the spheres in the air for a while, then direct some of the energy out of the first one into a beam, hitting the sea, then the other. With what you have now, each can hold about 3 shots like that, total of 6. Noticeable explosions burst forth out of the water, some of it splashing on Goku and Krillin. You fly down to a very, very impressed Yamcha."Heh, got a name for that, kiddo?" the young man asks with a grin."Hmm... thinkin' maybe... Spirit... Bit?" you say with a shrug."Not 'Spirit Funnel?' Heh." he returns with a friendly jab."We'll see~" You skip back inside for your birthday lunch. After the meal, Bulma hits up on the idea of going to the Dream Land amusement park with you all, even offering to pay for everyone else since you and your brother have your tickets already.>A. Agree to it>B. Nah, another time>C. Something else?
>>40843734>>40843646>tfw you ripped both of these off without knowing about either of them in SAQwell shit.
>>40843742>A. Agree to itDude we're like 10Fuck yes we'll hit up an amusement park.Man I remember when I used to enjoy amusement parks. Got too old for that now. Maybe someday I'll have a son or daughter who will enjoy them on my behalf.
>>40843742>>A. Agree to itSounds good.6 Shots more than enough to kill anything that moves.I can only imagine how many Spirit Bits we could control if we got up to DBZ power levels.
>>40843796>"Oh look, the PTO. Oh look, no more PTO, and we keep all their stuff."
>>40843767>SAQwho?Anyway the concept has been around for a long time. Shit is awesome.
>>40843796What if we are all tech'y and shit instead of making more we make them more powerul maybe even put some basic programming into the ki control with the help of other things.
>>40843848Put our spirit bits in some TECHNOLOGY casings that increase their power/shots/control? Fuck yea.
>>40843871Yeah but then we'd have to carry a capsule around filled with little drone things.Or maybe clothes beam V2.0 can make things.Hm.
>>40843895Thats what i was thinking, clothes beam the tech aswell as an upgraded scouter that lets us issue commands and shit
>>40843742>A. Agree to it
>>40843922It depends entirely on what clothes beam is allowed to do.It makes clothes.I don't think a drone chassis is covered under clothes.
>>40843871Pour spirit energy into some Power Armor so it can act on its own and you basically have a Stand from JJBA.
>>40843964Kato mentioned in a previous thread the potential to make scouters with it if we trained enoughSo its not outside the realm of possibility
>>40844038A scouter is not a drone, dude.I wasn't talking about the scouter.
>>40844053Thats not the point silly. If we can create something mechanical like the scouter why couldn't we make something like a drone?
>>40844053>So its not outside the realm of possibilityThats what i said, if we can magic up tech then why can we not train for more advanced tech?Moron
>>40844091Because it's different in function.You wear a scouter.You don't wear a drone.Who knows what arbitrary rules are imposed on magic.I don't want to assume anything.
>>40843984Perhaps if you name it something silly. Like "Too Spooky.">>40844091You might be able to do something further down the road, but it will require more skills and magic beyond the regular Clothes Beam. We'll see.Anyway, writing...
>>40844127That works. Magic up Giant Robots eventually. Because Chicks Dig Giant Robots.I see nothing wrong with magicing one up then having a capsule remote that wirelessly loads ai.
>>40844166>Ki powered skeletonJesus christ how horrifying
>>40844166Well the tradition is to name it after '80s rock and also after ghosts, right?Obvious choice then is Ghost Ship.
>>40843742You are a ten year old girl with a twin brother and one of your friends is suggesting you go to an amusement park with her and your other friends. How could you say no to this? You can't, it is impossible. You're nearly bouncing with joy at the suggestion. Your brother, in spite of trying to keep his cool, is just about to start doing the same. Bulma takes that as a "yes." You all make a quick trip over to West City, where the purple-haired young woman quickly points out this "Dream Land" place.A domed area in the sky. Quite high up, at that. It's quite an interesting place. On your walk over, you see some of the police officers outside the station wave to you and your friends, then spot... a blonde woman in sleep clothes groggily walking into the station. For a moment she looks at your group, then seems to be staring at Launch. How... odd. Aw well, DREAM LAND! The place is loads of fun. You ride around on a carousel, race around in bumper cars, bounce around in an entire room of some sort of elastic material, and even get to go on a roller coaster. It's not nearly as thrilling as you're used to, but it's certainly something neat. Oolong doesn't seem to take as well to the last ride, Puar embarrassed for him.On your way to get some snacks, you notice a person following your group from some distance away, slightly familiar. And staring at Launch. Hmm... You're about to ask when you hear a lady scream for help. Goku's the first to get ready.>A. Hero time! Rush to the scene!>B. Let one of your friends deal with it, who's following you?>C. Something else?
>>40844659>>A. Hero time! Rush to the scene!DYNAMIC ENTRY!
>>40844659>A. Hero time! Rush to the scene!
>>40844679>A. Hero time! Rush to the scene!
>>40844659I, personally, as a player, want to>B. Let one of your friends deal with it, who's following you?However, it would be out of character.Maple would obviously>A. Hero time! Rush to the scene!Because Maple has a brilliant scientific and magical mind, that is overruled by her impulses to HERO and SMASH. Though she can certainly HERO and SMASH in very intelligent ways.
>>40844829Pretty much nailed it.
>>40844659>B. Let one of your friends deal with it, who's following you?Bring Acer
>>40844659You and Goku immediately rush to the scene. You spot a woman in garb not characteristic of the park's normal visitors with two men beside her, pulling at her purse. You and Goku look at each other and nod, then immediately dropkick the assailants. They go flying, and then crash into a wall. Upon standing up, they immediately start running, Acer, Krillin, and Chi-chi chasing after them. You, Yamcha, Goku, and Bulma help the lady up, Launch, Puar, and Oolong staring at her in mild confusion."Oh thank you, you sweet child, I don't know what they'd ever do if they got..." she looks up and sees you. She seems... almost scared? Goku looks at her with suspicion. The two stare for a moment, when suddenly..."Hey, she has a booger on her head!" he shouts, pointing at her mole. You and Bulma promptly clock him on the head. "Oww... what did I do?""Goku, that isn't polite." you lecture him. Damn it monkey boy."Ah, uh, th-thank you again." she scoots back. "S-say, I happen to be a fortune teller, would you all like to have your fortune's told? It's on the house! Yeah, l-least I could do for two saving me!">A. What's wrong, lady, are you OK? You look like you've seen a ghost>B. Something's fishy here, read her mind>C. Decline on the fortune>D. Check if there's still that person following you>E. Something else?
>>40845464>A. What's wrong, lady, are you OK? You look like you've seen a ghost
>>40845464>A. What's wrong, lady, are you OK? You look like you've seen a ghost>D. Check if there's still that person following you
>>40845464>B. Something's fishy here, read her mind
>>40845464>A. What's wrong, lady, are you OK? You look like you've seen a ghost>C. Decline on the fortune>D. Check if there's still that person following you
>>40845464>B. Something's fishy here, read her mind>C. Decline on the fortune>D. Check if there's still that person following you
>>40845464>B. Something's fishy here, read her mindCanonically we just learned about the habits of scam artists and pickpockets.Now would be when we put that knowledge into practice.
>>40845464>>A. What's wrong, lady, are you OK? You look like you've seen a ghost>D. Check if there's still that person following younot polite to always mind read.
>>40845464Well that is certainly suspicious behavior. "What's wrong, lady? You OK? You look like you've seen a ghost." You lean in like how Goku did. "And I'll pass on the fortune.""I-I'm fine. Just..." She looks around, then runs back inside. You raise an eyebrow, making sure there wasn't anything swiped, then attempt to read her mind, but the only thought you can get clearly is "IT'S HER! IT'S THEM!""What was her problem?" Bulma comments, the rest of your friends nodding as your brother's group arrives with the would-be robbers."Probably runs a scam business." the blonde Launch comments. "These two hooligans run up and pretend to mug her, she takes you in, pockets some of your valuables. Look, you can tell how recent this building looks." Launch looks at the two. "Yeah yeah, I know Blue, but still. Small-time scams like this are dime a dozen."You would know, Launch." a voice addresses her. The... person that was following you, you presume? A blonde woman who doesn't look much older than Launch, with a cap that says "TOMATO" on it. Then she pulls out a badge. "Officer Akai Tomato. Launch, you're under arrest.">A. Tell her Launch hasn't done anything wrong... recently>B. Ask her what's going on here>C. Check on the would-be robbers, check if what Launch said is true>D. Something else?
>>40846103>A. Tell her Launch hasn't done anything wrong... recentlyShe's spent the last year on an island in the middle of nowhere
>>40846103>>C. Check on the would-be robbers, check if what Launch said is true>>D. Something else?>"You know, we caught these two apparent muggers, if you'd like you can hold onto them?"
>>40846103>B. Ask her what's going on here>C. Check on the would-be robbers, check if what Launch said is true
>>40846103I like this >>40846176Also where do people get these caps with their names on them? I want one.
>>40846103>C. Check on the would-be robbers, check if what Launch said is trueAlso, we can't in good conscience help turn Launch in. Likewise, we can't in good conscience turn down the Law. And if we don't interfere, Launch is going to get away, since Launch VASTLY overpowers anything the police can put out. Unless the police suddenly have fighting robots, battleships, or nuclear bombs.
>>40846103>>A. Tell her Launch hasn't done anything wrong... recently>>B. Ask her what's going on here
>>40846103You rub the back of your head. Well. Can't say you didn't expect this to happen, but... Well, first thing's first. You turn to the lady's assailants. "Is what she said true? Because that would help a bit.""Ah, um, well... Hask-OW" the boar man starts, but is silenced by the other."W-we just want to make some money! That's all!" the other chuckles nervously."Well, you heard them, you might wanna get these two men, Officer. Also, ah... Launch hasn't done anything bad here." you tell the new lady. "Recently..." you add with a mumble."Thirty-five bank robberies, two train robberies, four hundred and twelve counts of assault..." she starts reciting a list she seems to have memorized, Launch counting the charges."Miss, um, what exactly is going on here?" you look at her and try to give her the most puppy-ish pout you can. It doesn't work."What is taking you two morons so long, I told you to get r-" the first woman from before jumps out, now wearing an all-too familiar getup. "Oh shit.""Master Thief Hasky, oh, good, you can come with us." the Officer states, pulling our some handcuffs."Fat chance!" the woman takes out a remote control. "You make any wrong moves, and this entire park goes up in smoke!"Tomato, in response... holds a cat hostage. Your group stare at the two of them. Bulma sighs in frustration. "Happy Birthday, Maple and Acer.">A. Tell everyone to calm down>B. Get the remote>C. Get the cat>D. Something else?
>>40846494Tell launch telepathically to save the day!
>>40846494>>B. Get the remote'Acer get the cat please'or maybe do >>40846523this
>>40846523Yeah this, her power levels high enough i thinkOr at least have her lead and then we follow up
>>40846523Yeah this works.
>>40846494>"You make any wrong moves, and this entire park goes up in smoke!"Protip: The right move is disabling the remote.That's ASSUMING she's not just holding out a car remote or mobile phone and bluffing.(Fun fact: Terrorists DO use car remotes and mobile phones to trigger remote explosives. They are far cheaper than building your own long range transmission system.)
>>40846494You find your face becoming well acquainted with your palm, and then send telepathic messages to your brother and Launch. You inform them that Launch can stop Hasky, you'll get the remote, and brobro can... save the cat. What is WITH that lady? Well, the tactic seems to have distracted Hasky. On the count of three, you all break. Launch delivers a strong right hook to the thief lady, causing her to drop the remote, which you catch quickly before it hits the ground and possibly activates. Launch then goes after the other two, knocking both clear on their ass. Your brother helps the cat go in the confusion, then you Clothes Beam some cloth restraints around the three. Launch picks them all up and hands them to Tomato."Three sixty-seven. I never got up to four hundred. Probably double-counted some of them." she clarifies, then sighs. "Uh, kids, sorry about this. I'm gonna go with them for a while. Maybe get off on good behavior...." she grumbles as she picks up the three thieves and walks off with Tomato, conversing with her."...well that happened." Yamcha says in near disbelief. Sadly, before you can enjoy any more of the park, everyone is ordered to evacuate while the law enforcement searches for any explosive devices.Bulma lets out an aggravated sigh. "So much for that Birthday present. I'm sorry it kinda... ended up like this.">A. There's always next time, and you still had fun>B. Think they'll give you all a refund?>C. You want to check up on Launch>D. Something else?
>>40846908>C. You want to check up on Launch
>>40846908>>A. There's always next time, and you still had fun>C. You want to check up on Launch
>>40846908>C. You want to check up on Launch>D. Something else?Cmon.We're 10 years oldWe're in an evacuated amusement parkCheck backstage at the Haunted House.
>>40843834Space Alcoholic Quest aka the other DBZ quest in which we play a nice Arkosian with a drinking habit.
>>40846908>>C. You want to check up on Launch>>D. Something else?See if you can use some prize money to pay some fines and reduce jail time.
>>40847054Oh THAT, since when did we make those?
>>40846908You look back at Dream Land. "Saaaay... who wants to go checking on any abandoned Haunted Houses? I mean, it is Halloween." you ask with a cheeky grin. Bulma and Yamcha shudder at the thought, your brother shaking his head."Maple, no.""Maple, yes?""Maple. No.""No fun..." you grumble. Looking at Bulma's sunken expression, you pat her on the back. "Always next time. Besides, we still had some fun.""I guess... so now what?"You look towards the Police Station as you pass by. "I wanna check up on Launch.""Sounds like a plan." brobro comments. As you all head inside, you explain as much as you can about the situation. The most that they can do for you is bring the expenses down to 1,500,000 Zenni and 3 weeks community service. While you are willing to front most of that, Krillin steps in and says that he can pay for it; the riches he acquired from the Pirate Cave were worth much more than that. Launch approaches you all."Uh... kids. I don't know what to say." She turns away, rubbing the back of her neck."Think of it as promising that you'll not throw away your second chance." you tell her. Your friends nod in agreement.Launch smiles. "It's a promise."https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jSTdqvea_K8>YOU HAVE COMPLETED THE FIFTH SOCIAL LINK WITH ROSHI> YOU HAVE COMPLETED THE THIRD SOCIAL LINK WITH BULMA> YOU HAVE COMPLETED THE THIRD SOCIAL LINK WITH LAUNCH> YOU HAVE COMPLETED THE SECOND SOCIAL LINK WITH YAMCHA>DRAGON BALL TUFFLE QUEST #16 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 canI'll be here like usual, so feel free to ask whatever questions you have here too. Did ya'll have fun today?
>>40847516So now Launch is at a no jail can hold her tier in Yellow Form.Blue form is the same, but absudly powerful housewife.At least she won't be gone for too long, other then a month.
>>40847516Thanks for the run boss. Sunday next thread?
>>40847516Thanks for the run Kato!
>>40847076>Demasiados tiros (Too many shots). Our own version of the Hellzone Grenade, but balls don't zoom in towards the enemy, they turn into Deathbeams and fly at them instead. (Think Terra from KH2FM and his drones)Since we came up with this.
>>40847576Makes me wonder.How much shit could she get done in three weeks of community service?Assuming the average criminal has a PL of 7+, with remarkable ones at higher numbers of 20, any stronger and they could just walk out of the place, probably.And Blue Launch has a PL of 257 which means Blonde Launch is probably breaching 600 (guessing since Launch initially had a PL of, what, 6 with Blue hair and Blonde Launch had a PL of 47, right?)So just how much stuff will she get done in that short span of time?
>>40847697I figure just under 400. Roshi training tops out at about 500.
>>40847576Provided you can help keep her on the right track, yeah, she's probably gonna be avoiding jail for the foreseeable future. Who knows, she might really end up like some sort of Dragon Ball Francis Morgan.>>40847640>>40847671Thanks for playing! Next thread should be Sunday, yes. Usual time.>>40847697>>40847742Blondie is up to 490, but she has the potential to be even higher. There's a lot she can do to help out, hence why the term is only 3 weeks. Introducing herself as Roshi's student helped things a bit.
>>40847516Awesome!All right, down to business. Stuff to do, in no particular order:Help Bulma tinker around with the scouter, and the pirate cave techMoveswap up a cutting move from Chichi or KrillinGo find and work for Tripitaka, see if we can learn some MagicPractice magic more. We can clothes beam and lightning spells.Practice ki with the rest of the cast more.Go investigate the people "above" who trained Korin. (Kami's lookout)Go investigate the Crane SchoolMaybe create an ultimate move.Maybe practice some kind of Dual Tech or teamwork-based fighting move.Also, when is Roshi's birthday? We totally gotta bake flesh dad a cake.
>>40847802Think we'll be able to pull off Spirit Bit Shield like Nu Gundam in CCA?
>>40847742>>40847802None of that answers my question of how much work can she get done.And now I am disappointed.
We should ask someone to draw a Toriyama!Acer
>>40847890Assuming PL is related to work capable in a linear way, Launch could perform 18,000 man hours of work in that period. A house requires 1,100 man hours to build. She could feasibly perform the equivalent work of building 16 houses.
>>40847687Oh, kek I think I helped make that.
>>40847853Roshi doesn't actually have a given birthday, but his birth year is given. Age 430.>>40847876Certainly, with enough training in it. Right now it's more like the Qubeley's.>>40847906Honestly I've sort of been picturing him as a mix between these two. Shorter hair like Al's, disposition more like Ed's.>>40847890>>40847981Factor in that she can also fly under her own power. No need for things like ladders.
>>40847981>>40848067I am happy now.Probably still an asshole, though!
>>40848067>enter a joke about teaching him alchemy and losing an arm and a leg here.
>>40848103Dude, he would get a super bitching robot arm and leg in this setting.Or just eat a senzu, either way, no loss.
>>40848180>Acer is the FULL METAL ALCHEMIST
>>40848203Anon what did I tell you about explaining jokes
>>40848222Fuck im dense
>>40848203I disregarded your reference because the logic in the setting does not permit for such a thing.Bruh.
>>40848252>Cybernetic prosthetics and alchemy are not canonWhat
>>40847981>>40847890Or, alternatively, she could build 10,000 modern guns, 250 mobile artillery pieces, 5 Tanks, 1 traditional fighter biplane, or 1/10th of a modern fighter jet.>>40848067Launch, lacking knowledge in the key skills, could not actually build any of the things listed (except probably for the modern gun). This is just an example.If you want manhours of labor for someone without technical knowledge, the usual thing is flattening and clearing land for roads/railways, or digging out places for construction/mining.In these situations, you'd have to compare her PL to the PL of industrial equipment.Unfortunately, PLs are kind of bunk when applied to that kind of scale.A Rail Engine outputs about 2 Megawatts. A human being outputs 400 watts during intense exercise. By that scale, if an average human is 4 PL, then the rail engine would be 20,000 PL, or enough to flatten Vegeta.This is of course crap.
>>40848323Holy shit, bro.It's like you don't even read what other people post.Automail is explicitly NOT cybernetic, by the way.
>>40848374Original setting saying "ITS TOTALLY NOT CYBERNETIC, GUISE" means a sum of total jack of shit.
>>40848374I did read the post I just dint understand the point it was trying to convey. sorry I guess.
>>40848416>Original setting saying "ITS TOTALLY NOT CYBERNETIC, GUISE" means a sum of total jack of shit.Except it doesn't.In this setting it more than likely also wouldn't be cybernetic, since as of current tech, no one is doing that whole cyborg thing save Gero, and we wouldn't ask him to build Acer an arm.So you can rightly go fuck yourself.
>>40848485So what the fuck are they then asswipe
Hey, what if Acer's a reference to the One-Inch Samurai?
>>40848510They are automail, in the original setting.And in this setting it would probably be some crude robotics, but distinctly not cybernetic, as that has a rather specific meaning.
>>40848343Comparatively, if Power Levels scaled linearly to wattage:A battleship would have a power level of 10,000,000, or enough to flatten anything short of Frieza.The Saturn V rocket would have a power level of 100,000,000 , or enough to seriously challenge Frieza's final form.A large nuclear bomb (2 Megatons TNT equivalent)'s power level would be 100 Billion, or enough to flatten Final Form Cell.This is crap though, as 20,000PL Vegeta could blow up the planet, and Final Form Cell could blow up the ~solar system~.Earth's gravitational binding energy is on the order of 10^32 Joules.If Vegeta outputting power for 1 hour was enough to split the earth into two pieces, he'd have to output at least 4*10^28 Joules per second, or 4*10^28 watts.This is equivalent to 10^26 times the average human's energy output.Thus making Vegeta's PL upon landing at earth ... 500,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000.Even if you assume Vegeta's power to "destroy the earth" was only equivalent to the claim that he would boil the oceans,that would require 4 x 10^26 Joules of energy, a millionth of what it would take to destroy the planet.That still puts his power level at 10^20 times the average human's,or a power level of 50,000,000,000,000,000,000Conclusion: Power levels are not linear.Or, if they are, there's no fucking WAY mundane machinery could have a PL of 50 or a human a PL of 5.
>>40848103It's a good thing you and brobro don't have a biological mother to bring back.>>40848343Honestly, even for the purposes of this quest PLs are barely more than fluff. More like EXP or something, what you need to reach the next sort of tier of strength. Goku's about half way to level 3, FYI.>>40848535Man the short jokes will only get better as time goes on.
>>40848633Except machines in DB and DBZ don't have PLs, because it doesn't measure electrical output, but Ki, instead.Machines do not have Ki, as they are not "alive".Ya dig?You'd be better off measuring how Ki translates into electricity, rather than how electricity translates into PLs
>>40848702I am not measuring electricity. The Watt is a unit of energy over time.
>>40848647>Honestly, even for the purposes of this quest PLs are barely more than fluff. More like EXP or something, what you need to reach the next sort of tier of strength. Goku's about half way to level 3, FYI.Goku will always outpace maple. He has some wonky bonus there and a lot of people like me want to play with magic.PL becomes crap after Frieza saga without fancy transformations or mergers though.
>>40848765I derped, I kept reading that as electricity, hold on, let me go headbutt a textbook.But even so, wattage is a terrible way to compare to something that is "fictional" like Ki.I mean, we can't shoot lasers out of our feet, so Ki as it is in DB is kind of non-existent.
>>40848633Even assuming that Power levels are bullshit,the energy required to destroy a planet is equivalent to 100,000,000,000,000,000 modern city-flattening atomic bombs.Frieza, putting 1% of his potential energy into a kick, would not make a crater when it knocks Goku into the ground.Instead, it'd put in enough effort to start moving the planet at 1 kilometer per second. Or, in other words, the planet's crust just splattered.
>>40848786Exactly, just pointing it out. You've done a helluva job keeping pace, at least. Besides, pure numbers aren't everything. Skills are important.Also does anyone want to start pondering on what your first Ultimate will be like? Keep in mind it's sort of the kind of things you'd see in the Z fighting games, finishing moves and the like. The Super Kamehameha that Goku used against Piccolo Jr. for example counts as one, in terms of how it'd relate to canon DB. Or you could wait until the next thread, there's plenty of time.
>>40848943Something that involves Kamehameha, Spirit ball, and dragons.Lock on giant fuck off death laser always works.Either that or a Kamehameha made of fire.honestly I'm outta ideas.
>>40848943We turn into a frog and "CHANGE NOW" only to actually arseplomancer them instead of taking over their body?Not high.
>>40848943My suggestion was basically a charging attack where Maple flies at the opponent, summons a ball of energy around her that grows larger and makes her move faster as more Ki is pumped into it, which then explodes on the enemy as Maple headbutts them.Can't go wrong with good ol' charging attack.
>>40848943Mass Spirit Funnels - x5 the normal amount of funnels surround the target and go to town.Thor's Hammer - Bind the target in place with clothes beam and summon a massive lightning bolt onto of them.I'll keep thinking.
>>40848943Dragon Lightning.First learn telekinesis.Then be able to create a huge ass lighting dragon that seeks down and charges the enemy.
>>40848943Phantom Shotgun but more powerful
>>40848943Energy ball that encases the opponent, and flies them at high speeds into our (and our friends') fists as though they were a pinball.
>>40848943How about something with energy waves and portals?
>>40848943Charged Spirit Bits/Funnels + Magic Shenanigans + Detonating beam = HUGE chain explosion, akin to the Shock Rifle from Unreal Tournament when you hit the big energy balls with the primary fire mode.
>>40849126I swear Slug totally did that.Or Frieza.Or both.Fuck.
>>40848943Cluster homing projectiles? Oh, how about something like Megaman X3's ultimate X-Buster attack where shooting special Ki Blasts through your slower Ki Blasts enhance them, sorta like the Avan Strash from the Dragon Quest manga.
>>40849170Frieza definitely did it.
Let's just borrow some things from Touhou.
>>40848943Earth's magnetic field comes from charges in its core.The auroras come from the massive amount of charged particles hitting earth from the Sun.Lightning is when charges in place A and place B connect.I'm thinking a lightningbolt that doesn't stretch from the sky to the ground, but stretches from space to the mantle. Possibly even from the Sun to the Earth's core at higher levels.In its wake, it leaves a beautiful aurora.Call it the World Lightning.
>>40849203Our moveset could be like a mix of Reimu's and Marisa's. Maybe with some tree shit mixed in.
>>40849241World Lightning sounds too tameQUICKLY! Someone google translate it to make it more dramatic!
>>40849203Touhou's attacks, while potent, also waste 99% of their energy in being flashy.That said:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZkDT-OlkYTI
>>40849294Holy shit. I think this is how we stay relevant in Z.
>>40849294Fantasy Seal and Master Spark are simple and sweet. Maybe something to debuff our opponents, maybe inhibit their movements somewhat, and a strong attack we use by channeling the world's energy, sorta like Black Mage's Hadoken.
>>40848633Roshi is also capable of destroying entire planetoids.
>>40849294>Break a hole in the universe just to score a goal in soccerNow THIS is what im talking about.
>>40849351His PL was roughly 300 because of 100% FULL POWER mode, and he destroyed the moon with his 100% Kamehameha wave.He can punch so far above his PL it's not even funny.
>>40849408I think most of it has to do with the Kamehameha. Seriously what if you started that thing and just charged it for like, 10 minutes?
>>40849241>>40849261Pillar of Eterni--, wait, dammit.Spectral something something. There's a ghost theme to uphold, you know.>>40848943If we want to keep the FMA theme going, we could do some magic shit or stuff to break down matter around us and collect the energy from whatever matter has been broken down, then use said energy to amplify/power a huge ki blast. Kind of like a Spirit Bomb, but with inanimate objects instead of life force. Or if we get in really good with Otherworld and Yemma, perhaps we could gather ghostly energy from willing people and use that as some sorta opposite Spirit Bomb.
>>40849441You'd die, because it is neither the spirit bomb nor SSJ3.Get it?Cause... oh hell.100% mode actually does enhance all of his stuff, though, something to do with Ki circulation and blah blah energy.
>>40849468Wonder if roshi will ever teach us 100% mode.I wonder if thats a human exclusive thing.
>>40849527Every quest I bring it up.Every quest I'm either ignored or shot down.Feelsbadman.
>>40849527It seems to be very similar to the various power-weighted forms that popped up during the Cell Saga. Increases physical strength and Ki stuff, but you slow down too much to make it count unless you're fighting someone who's already slow.
>>40849575But anon! It's a gateway technique!Think of the things you could learn from it!
>>40848535I kinda thought maybe it was a Gravity Falls reference. Dipper and Maple. Acer and still Maple.
>>40849009These are some good ideas.>>40849022Haha, funny, anon.>>40849028That'd make for an interesting attack. Gohan and Freeza have similar moves, but this one has potential.>>40849033>>40849058>>40849241So I take it you're gonna prioritize Lightning magic next thread? I have some neat, vaguely CT-inspired ideas for it myself. This should be fun.>>40849062Perhaps compress all the ki into one blast instead of the shotgun shot spray? Like a slug round, yeah? mite b cool>>40849126That is definitely a Freeza technique. Gonna have to master TK for something like that.>>40849147Gonna be hard without figuring out portals first, though... "Worm Smasher" Kamehameha? Maybe, maybe...>>40849168That's an interesting idea. Might have to work a bit harder on it, though.>>40849188Definitely like this idea.>>40849203>>40849294That's probably stuff for the upper tiers. Maybe when you reach, oh, level 15 or so.>>40849455That's a neat idea, but probably a bit too difficult to manage about now. Maybe around the time you hit level 10 or so.Well this has given me a LOT of ideas to work with, thanks folks!
>>40849618Ayyyy thats pretty good>>40849624Baba sending us on a pilgrimage to the spirit world when.
>>40849657I think Kami would get us to the other dimension better considering he's guardian of earth.Not that I know who Kami is.
>>40849731That reminds me that Kami CAN go to the spirit world whenever he wants.Honestly I need to watch Dragon ball from start to finish.Is the mango better?
>>40849731Who's Kami?He sounds like an awesome person, who would give sage advice and be a generally great grandfather figure who everyone loves, and gets fucked over by plot, which makes everyone really really sad.But I mean, hey, I don't know, he just -sounds- like that kinda guy, ya know?
>>40849624Bean Sith - Targets a person's soul and unbinds it from a person's body
>>40849009Now when you say something that involves Kamehameha, Spirit Ball and Dragons, do you mean you create one or potentially multiple Kamehameha balls, send them off and then during the fight you wait for the right moment to unleash them, or do you mean a Kamehameha that you can turn and redirect as it's going? Because I like both of those ideas.
>>40849624Plasma Sap - The Ki blast that keeps on sticking and keeps on burning
>>40849921Thats brobros I would think, being Fire based and all.
>>40849624So we got no power level gain while working on training our friends? Guess there is only so much time in the day.
>>40849916A mix of both, many tiny kamehamahas that redirect towards enemies.
>>40849624I just thought of one that was so exciting that I dropped everything I was doing so I could write it down before I forgot. If we're going for DBXV ultimate type moves, here's one:Spectral Janken Fist>Rock! Maple smashes her fist into opponent, and unloads Phantom Shotgun after the punch connects.>Scissors!Maple charges multiple max-charge Geist Magnums to using two fingers on one hand, and uses them to strafe opponent into one spot. She then converges her fingers like scissors, so her target gets pelted with huge beamspam. Kinda like how Frieza likes to pelt opponents with a fuckton of Death Beams. >Paper!While scissors is bombarding the opponent, Maple charges up another huge attack. Then she rams into her opponent while wreathed in Ki, then condenses the Ki into her palm and either fires a huge finishing blast or delivers an extremely punishing palm-strike. Huge explosion at the end optional.Oddly enough, this closely resembles the Saiyan Spirit Ultimate, which is one of Bardock's signature ultimate moves in the various DBZ games.
>>40849624Fire and Forget: Fires a Geist Magnum at the enemy. If it hits, great! if it misses it goes careening off into the distance...and then comes back when the enemy forgets about it.
>>40849624Wraith Suit - You can move your body with your thoughts and wants no matter how busted up you are.
>>40850069Ooh, like that ghost nazi power?Man.Bleach got fucking dumb.
>>40850104Huh? Bleach did it?
>>40849624Angel Halo - You form an energy ball in your opponent's head, and detonate it.
>>40850120Yeah, lemme search for it.
>>40850120Yeah.Somewhere around there https://youtu.be/Kg6ANa0l9vw?t=12m32s
>>40850120Found itRansōtengai: A high-level technique that allows the user to control their body parts using strings of Reiryoku controlled by their brain, forming lines or strings out of Reishi. By using this technique, the user can control their body as one would a puppet, allowing them to move freely despite paralysis, broken limbs, or any other force that would impede normal movement.
>>40849624Devil's Torment - Purifies a person's soul through great pain and regret
Kamehamehaken - Charge your fist with the full power of a Kamehameha wave.
>>40849771My wife and I have been going through the entirety of DB start to finish, and I must say, the anime is actually quite good. Filler episodes especially try to expand on characterization and do things with it. Manga blitzes through things, anime takes its time to explore the world of Dragon Ball. A good chunk of what I've been playing around with here have been from the anime. Akai Tomato is actually from a different Toriyama work entirely, though she cameoed in DB in the exact same episode Hasky and Dream Land were in. Hence her presence here.>>40849832>>40850208That'll be harder ones to do, fair warning.>>40849921An interesting idea, I'll have to think about it.>>40850007Gave greater emphasis on improving them than on improving yourself, hence their tremendous gains.>>40850009Oooooh, I like this.>>40850025This is a clever one, good for a surprise attack, though might not be as effective against ki sensers.>>40850069pic related?>>40850154A bit basic, but interesting.>>40850296Might be a good combo finisher.
>>40849624Martyr's Mate - Our spirit buffs an ally/debuffs an opponent after we are slain
>>40850358>My wife and I have been going through the entirety of DB start to finish, and I must say, the anime is actually quite good.

Akai Tomato is actually from a different Toriyama work entirely, though she cameoed in DB in the exact same episode Hasky and Dream Land were in. Hence her presence here.Dragon Ball was still in the adventure phase, where very few enemies or acs lasted more then 1-3 episodes.Also easier to do when power levels were not a concern and everywhere.
>>40850362That sounds like a good way to get double killed.Also this one isn't really related to what we know but I love that one gun from the Resistance series so I'm gonna throw it out anyway.Auger Blast - a ki blast that goes through walls and gets stronger the more wall it goes through
>>40850496Those games honestly weren't half bad.
Tao knows pressure points to paralyze. Are there points to completely shut off someone's access to ki, or at least inhibit their ability to use it?We could hit SO far above our pl with kiblocking techniques.
>>40850541I don't think that will work on aliens. At least not unless we really refine our ki sensing.
>>40850358Saint Sword - A Concentrated Energy Wave that extends about 1-1.5 meters, needs extensive training to be as long-lasting as Kuwabara's or Vegetto's
>>40850358Banshee Roar - Like Solar Flare mixed with Lion's Roar from Kung Fu Hustle
>>40850634Oh sweet fuck, will we meet a wandering book salesman with tons of random looking handbooks that won't make sense until we get the shit beat out of us later?
>>40850662Goku probably won't care for the Buddhist's Palm Descending From Heaven.
>>40850715I could see the Maple Smash version of that.
>>40850358Pride of the Tuffles - Instantly kills anyone named Vegeta. What?For a serious suggestion, a move that focuses our ki into our limb(s) for a short amount of time, akin to Kaioken to give us some extra power in melee attacks. Or are we going a more ki and magic based character? I forget what stats we improved.
>>40850727Maple Smash - Flattens foes into pancakes
>>40850819A Ki enhanced version of Victory Rush from DBXV?Or maybe a lightning enhanced one.
Genki Ghoul - Allows us to take in energy from the surrounding area to recharge our Ki stores
>>40850844I like the lightning version. I think it would charge us up some. And probably shock our foes.
>>40850362Try not to make a habit of dying.>>40850429If you guys picked up prioritizing adventures, you probably would have met some of the filler villains alongside Goku and Krillin. Still plenty more to meet, I might be able to tie one in with your eventual meeting with Trip...>>40850496Ooooh, nice.>>40850541>>40850601Might not be effective against aliens, yeah, and machines or cyborgs.>>40850603There's a neat idea.>>40850634>>40850662>>40850715>>40850727I have the biggest, dumbest grin on my face right now. You guys are great.>>40850819Might have to learn a different technique first, but it's got potential.>>40850844>>40850893That's a really neat idea. Do remember that you're more ki-focused now, though.>>40850860Quite a spooky technique, might have to learn something else first.
Zombi Tazer - spooky name for chain lightning
>>40850912I'm still surprised at just how many references you get.okay, it's on, one of these threads, there will be a reference you don't get.
Anon from earlier who was wondering about the animu.Jesus christ bulma is a slut
We should train more under baba. She's sure to have tricks up her sleeve she's only willing to teach her most accomplished and trustworthy students.
>>40851072Maybe after we've explored some.
>>40850912>I have the biggest, dumbest grin on my face right now. You guys are great.Yeah, how about Maple using a modified version of the Buddah's Palm, the Maple Fish on Nappa and just flattening him instead.
>>40851120>yfw he falls and begs we teach him how to git gud
>>40851021I don't get those references and I am sad.
Tree of Life - Ability to heal injuries except our own
>>40851149Mystical Magical Nappa?Nappa in a grand wizard robe?Muscle Wizard Nappa.
>>40851155DoubledubsGo watch "Kung Fu Hustle" and be amazed.
>>40851165Not really feeling the whole Messiah vibe there. It reeks of martyrdom.
>>40850541So go Ty Lee on people?We're going to become a firebender. We have some fire magic already, and are thinking about lightning magic too. Once we get the lightning magic we need to work on our fire magic some so we can throw it around more easily. Then power it up so the temp rises and causes it to burn blue.
>>40851188Yeah, it's sorta the opposite of unlife and resurrection.
>>40851213Eh, there's so much more to learn besides fire powers. Besides, fire's not that effective.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zIt03bjH-Zw
>>40851252I rather personally learn cold powers, and just master fire and ice as straight up mastery of Thermodynamics.
>>40851288>>40851271But then we can't master the greatest power of all.And I don't have any pictures to make a Bobobo-Bo-bobobo reference.Fuck that show was weird.
Nappa and Vegeta never learn of the Dragon Balls, and thus Freeza never does.Spaceward Ho!, as the Wild Cards lauch a multi-billion law suit on Cold Corp for stealing of the scouter and unlawful destruction of property. (Planet Plant)Instead of Namek, the fight happens on Galactic Patrol HQ.
>>40851252Ask Pikkon how effective fire can be.
>>40850988Might be neat. Name sounds like it goes with something else, though.>>40851021It'll happen. Don't worry about it anon.>>40851072Still have telekinesis to learn, at least.>>40851165Kinda a different branch there, anon.>>40851120>>40851149>>40851180>>40851224Hmm... ideas...>>40851213So long as you don't become a psycho with parenting issues. Hrm, maybe I can test this with a game of volley- er, Kuai Ball...That's what it was called, right? Been forever since I watched that ep.>>40851435Ideas, ideas...
>>40851496We just have to make sure we defeat our opponents for all time. For they will never rise from the ashes of their shame and humiliation.
>>40851496Great, now we have to deal with teaching magic to a member of a species that simply cannot into magic.Wonder how long it'd take Nappa to figure out he wasn't using magic at all, just fancy ki footwork.Who am I kidding, his flexing to perform "spells" would be glorious.He has the physique to perform techniques handed down for generations!
>>40851548No, no we don't. These are just ideas being thrown around.
>>40851590Oi, I already have the whole thing figured out.We can even science him up some gauntlets that do some fancy things for him since he can't naturally.
>>40851548>>40851590>>40851610Well a hallmark of /tg/ DBZ quests has been to spare Nappa and change him.Human quest had farmer Nappa.Space Monkies has Abridged Nappa.Space Alcholics has tactical/general Nappa.
>>40851649Fuck that, he's a no-good Space Monkey. Goku has goodness in him, Nappa's slaughtered without mercy.
>>40851708So is Bardock a good guy or a bad guy?How about Gine?
>>40851649Though Nappa was killed initially in Human Quest. It took him a while before he became good people. Space Alcoholics has a different sort of Nappa due to fundamental character changes, though Arctus probably doesn't mind too much that Nappa had to bloody his hands more than a few times to get where he is now. He's probably not too judgmental about it due to his own forced employment under the PTO.Space Monkeys Nappa survived through circumstance, mainly.
>>40851735Regardless of how he was in his movie, he still genocided people and enjoyed it.I couldn't say about Gine.
>>40851708Obviously.Personally Maple is likely up for just killing the space Saiyans, since they have committed genocide many times over.Alliance of convience is about the best they might get.
>>40851735Gine's good, Bardock's good to Saiyans, not so much anything else
>>40851735Bardock is a product of his environment. If he's evil, it's more because of the way his people are than any deep-seated need to inflict pain or dominate others. It was his job, he was good at it, and there would be hell to pay if he didn't do it. But the pay was good, and so were the fights.Gine is notably not-Saiyan like, if I recall correctly.
>>40851766Wrong!Gine, while gentle, still went out and fought alongside Bardock.She had no talent for fighting and couldn't really put her heart into it, but she still killed, and she still ate them motherfuckers.
>>40851794>Gine is notably not-Saiyan like, if I recall correctly.Yeah, it sounds like she was more human like then a Saiyan. She still worked on wiping out planets.
>>40851820She prepared the meat after they got it. A saiyan doesn't ever waste food, even if they don't have the stomach for killing.
>>40851863Yes, disregard the part where she still had spent time prior murdering entire populations.Conveniently forget about that.Captcha, that was a burger, not sushi.
>>40851547Anon no, please>>40851548>>40851610I don't think he has quite the mustache for such a thing.>>40851590It's certainly better than trying to start up any shipping arguments. Glad that's sort of settled for now.>>40851649>>40851708Such a thing is a long way off anyway. Don't worry too much about it right now.>>40851735Bardock is A *BRILLIANT* SCIENTISTGine is a weakling that everyone makes fun of when she was on Bardock's squad. Especially Fasha/Celipa/Korn/whatever her name is.>>40851763Given what they might see from Goku by the time they arrive on Earth, it might be more damaging to the pride to let them live. Dash of mercy at the hands of a Saiyan-gone-soft and a couple Tuffles. Everything Veggie knew was has been turned upside-down.
>>40851897>I don't think he has quite the mustache for such a thing.You forget, his SSJ2 form DOES have that mustache, and it even turns blonde.Checkmate, naysayers.
>>40851884It's not what a person did that defines them, it's what they keep doing.
>>40852119She kept being a saiyan, and according to le edge guy above, means that she would be deh ebil and needs to die.And any way you slice it, she really wasn't a "good" person. Nice, sure, good, no.
>>40851897>Everything Veggie knew was has been turned upside-down.Can we get spiritual revelation Vegeta who lets go of his pride and dedicates his life and his strength to doing good for goodness' sake?
>>40852464You think Maple will be calm enough to even consider that when Prince of her race's mortal enemy is shittalking her?
>>40852478I assume the revelation would come after he's beaten by The Power of Friendship (TM)
>>40851897... so you guys put Gero into prison too huh...YOU FOOLS, you deserve what will happen!
