>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: a trip back to the Pirate Cave reveals more mysteries, you and brobro went monster hunting with Chi-chi, met con artists Tien and Chiaotzu, and are now back at Baba's to find a friend of Goku's who's been trying to deal with the increased demon activity on Earth...
>>40952941https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FgwVaqN0QxkYou fly down with your brother and Chi-chi, Goku and Krillin not far behind, the monkey boy in the outfit he got from Trip and Krillin in his yellow monk outfit. You see a long line of people at Baba's Palace, longer than usual. Several groups of martial arts schools and several seemingly rich folks, dressed like they've found a way to grow money on trees. Which would probably cause problems, thinking about it. Then again, if you COULD do that then- brobro pokes you to break your train of thought. You see Goku run up to one of the people standing in line, a woman wearing a yellow hat with orange details, simple yellow robes with slight orange details over a white one, and a tall staff."Trip! Hahaha! It's good to see you again." he starts bouncing at the ground around her."Son Goku, ah, it is good to see you too." she says in a rather calm and gentle manner. The woman then looks at you and your friends. "And am I correct to assume these are the comrades you have told me about?""Yep! These are my friends!" he quickly runs back over and grabs you and Krillin, pulling you both to meet her as Chi-chi and Acer run along as well. "Everybody, this is Trip."The woman sighs a little and smiles. "Trip-i-ta-ka, Son Goku. Still can't quite say that part, huh?" The monkey boy rubs the back of his head with a little embarrassed grin as he nods. She pats his head and bows to you all. "Well, that is my title, at least. Xuanzang Genjo Sanzo, I guess you could say I am a traveling monk." She places a hand forward and bows to you all.>A. Give a respectful bow back>B. Flashy introduction! >C. Ask her what she's doing here>D. Something else?
>>40952945>>B. Flashy introduction!Well of course
>>40952945A. CURTSEY!So are all these people here to get the Nen skills or something?
>>40952945>B. Flashy introduction!
>>40952945>>A. Give a respectful bow back
>>40952945>>A. Give a respectful bow back>>B. Flashy introduction!hahaha do both
>>40953117so... respectful bow, leading into the flashy intro?
>>40953117I'm fine with it if the rest of you are?
>>40952945You grin at the woman and give a respectful bow, then flip in the air and pose. Your brother looks like he's about to bonk you on the head, but you don't care. "The name is Maple Mahogany! Turtle School Master and World Martial Arts Champion!" The woman chuckles softly in amusement. Your brother and Krillin keep things proper, while Chi-chi mimics you a little.The lady pats you on the head. "Just as... enthusiastic as he claimed you are, Maple Mahogany. It is good to finally meet the friends Son Goku has told me so much about during our previous journey.""NEXT!" you hear the familiar voice of the little pink ghost call. A rich couple steps forward, conversing with themselves. Trip steps forward as well as the line moves."Why are you here, Trip?" Goku tugs at her robe a little. "Did you lose something?"The woman frowns and shakes her head. "I am here due to something that... I believe your friends have picked up on. There has been a large amount of demonic activity recently, centered in one location. I wish to know my foes intentions before I attempt any sort of action against them. Perhaps it will glean insight into the true nature of this incident.">A. Ask her how she knows you've been at this>B. Ask her what else she knows about the demons>C. Ask her something else (specify)>D. Talk with your friends about something (specify)>E. Something else?
>>40953353>A. Ask her how she knows you've been at this>B. Ask her what else she knows about the demons
>>40953353>>A. Ask her how she knows you've been at this>>B. Ask her what else she knows about the demons
>>40953353>>A. Ask her how she knows you've been at this>>B. Ask her what else she knows about the demonsAlso, do we know that Piccolo was called Demon King? Can't remember. If we do,>C. Ask her something else, ask discretely if this could be related to Piccolo.
>>40953353Well THAT was a curious comment. "How'd you know that we've been at this too?""It's not hard to notice the intentions of people if you look the right way. Your defeat of the False Orochi confirmed it for me." she says with a smile.Acer raises an eyebrow. "So, you can sense ki, or read minds, or something?""Perhaps not as well as you two can. It is more... subtle, for me, but useful nonetheless." Trip gives a shrug."So what do you know about the demons?" you ask as you stretch a little, Goku doing the same."They have... you could say 'broken certain rules' at the behest of the Demon King. That much I know." the woman frowns. "None of the truly powerful demons have stepped forward, perhaps because they are not aware, perhaps because they do not care. Either is fortunate.""NEXT!" the pink ghost shouts as the rich couple leaves, a school of martial artists all wearing masks stepping in.You look at your brother, sharing a quick telepathic conversation, and then fly up to the woman and ask her quietly, "Is there... any connection to a certain 'King Piccolo?'"She shakes her head no, but the way she does it gives the clear impression that the answer is not any better. "The current Demon King's name is... Shura. A being of immense power.">A. Shura?>B. Telepathically ask her what she knows about King Piccolo>C. Talk with your friends about something (specify)>D. Something else?
>>40953733>A. Shura?>B. Telepathically ask her what she knows about King Piccolo
>>40953733>A. Shura?and as we may as well>B. Telepathically ask her what she knows about King Piccolo
>>40953733>>A. Shura?>>B. Telepathically ask her what she knows about King Piccolo
>>40953733"Shura?" you tilt your head at her, placing your hands behind it as you float backwards."Yes. Ever since the previous Demon King disappeared and his son went missing, Shura has seized claim over the entirety of the Demon Realm." She sighs and looks at the ground. "And seems to be set on using the Earth as his personal... playground.""That doesn't sound very nice." Goku comments. "If he has his whole place, why does he want to bother with Earth?""Demons are rarely nice, Goku." Krillin tells him. You swear you hear Spike sneeze.Telepathically, you ask her what she knows about King Piccolo. She says that it is very little, in fact you know more than she does, but seems to know for a fact that this "Shura" person is on another level of strength."NEXT!" the pink ghost calls, the masked martial artists all leaving in shame. Look like she's up next."Think you'll need some help, Trip?" the monkey boy asks."I know that Baba's Fortunes are... not easy to come by." she looks away, slightly embarrassed.>A. Offer to help her>B. Don't offer, just wait>C. Talk with your friends about something>D. Something else?
>>40954129>>A. Offer to help her
>>40954129>A. Offer to help her
>>40954129>B. Don't offer, just waitif she deserves it,she'll get it
>>40954129>B. Don't offer, just wait
>>40954129You tug at the lady's robes. "Think you'll need some help?""So kind of you to offer, Miss Mahogany. I thank you." She smiles and nods acceptingly. The pink ghost starts to panic a little."R-right this way!" it floats off, all six of you following. As you enter the room, Baba approaches. The old lady and young both discuss things for a moment, Trip explaining that she does not have the cash necessary to pay the fee, but she is willing to go through the trials. She mentions that you have offered to help her as well."Hmm... I knew this would happen eventually." she says as she looks at you and Acer, then at Trip. "The purpose of the trials, the alternative to the fee, is to test your skills, prove your worth. However, all five of you could easily handle my trials with the skills you have now. All except..." she looks at Goku, then gives a smirk. "...perhaps I can make an arrangement.""What kind of arrangement, auntie Baba?" you ask her with a friendly smile."One million Zenni and two trials." she chuckles in a way that seems like it'd be quite an ordeal.>A. Accept the deal>B. Ask her why the change>C. Talk it over with Trip>D. Something else?
>>40954481>>A. Accept the dealSounds interesting
>>40954481>CIf trip agrees, A then B
>>40954481>D. Something else?"What are the trials? And isn't one million a bit steep for family?"
>>40954528Second. Give her the Tuffle eyes aswell, A thousand times worse than the puppydog eyes
>>40954528Roshi said there are no family discounts.
>>40954481How about three trials instead? Eh?
>>40954481>A. Accept the deal
>>40954528No exceptions for family.
>>40954481>C. Talk it over with Trip
>>40954481Though you sort of know the answer already, you feel the need to ask. "Million may be a tenth your regular price, but... still no excep-""Nope." she answers before you finish and laughs."What aboooouuut... three trials? Eh? Eh?" you try to give her the most pathetic, innocent expression you can manage. No dice. "Anything different about these trials?""Two tests of combat. One million Zenni. Final offer." Baba chuckles.You look at Trip. "Think this is agreeable?"She nods. "I feel that it is. Thank you for this opportunity, Fortuneteller Baba.""Ohohohoho... we will see how thankful you are."You hand over some money, your brother, and even Krillin pitching in. You have 10,000 Zenni left."Wait in the arena outside while I bring the first challenger." she says. You all follow, Goku and Trip catching up on things while Chi-chi and Acer talk some more, Krillin just keeping a confident grin on his face.>A. Talk with your friends about something>B. Ask Trip something>C. Equivalent Exchange?>D. Something else?
>>40955070>C. Equivalent Exchange?Anyone got something new?
>>40955070>C. Equivalent Exchange?
>>40955099Krillin and Chi-chi have their cutting techniques. Some people have Ultimate moves.
>>40955070Prep Goku for the challenge. Encouraging words and what not.
>>40955070>>C. Equivalent Exchange?Lets grab Chi Chi's cutting move
Can we try teaching Krillin lightning magic later? Because I just imagined Electro destructo discs.
>>40955355Ooh. Lightning Solar Flare.Thunder Flash!
Equivalent Exchange it is.Pick two:>Power Slicer (Chi-chi)>Destructo Disk (Krillin)>Bending Kamehameha (Goku)>Super Kamehameha (Goku)>Scatter Bullet (Krillin)>Healing (Trip)Pick two for trade:>Geist Magnum>Phantom Shotgun>Hallowed Rush>Wolf Fang Fist>Ki Jan Ken>Spirit Bit
>>40955537>Wolf Fang Fist>Ki Jan Ken>Healing (Trip)>Power Slicer (Chi-chi)
>>40955555Nice five fives.
>>40955555I OBEY YOU OH WISE TRIP MASTER!
Guess that settles it.Writing...
>>40955555>>40955537I'll second that Mr.5s
I forget, have we made a Ultimate yet?
>>40955777>>40955600>>40955788Dubs and trips like crazy.
>>40955980Jesus has nothing to do with this! This is the work of SATAN! Mr.Satan!
>>40956006Thats a standard technique
>>40955999>Mfw reverse 666....Damn it really is Mr Satan huh?
>>40956018>End of Days referenceMark of the beast, upside down cuz its in a dream.
>>40955070The wait seems to take a while, long enough for you to decide to put forth some effort training. You first ask Chi-chi if you can exchange knowledge of her ki cutting technique, the Power Slicer, for the Ki Jan Ken. She's more than happy to oblige. It takes far less time to get her to master your technique than it does for you to master hers, as most attempts seem to only throw a sort of blast. She explains the idea of compressing the energy, keeping it flattened. It takes a lot of work, and while you manage it, it'll take some time to completely master it. It's slower, and while it can cut its range is more limited than hers. Still, the fact that it fires off so quickly will come in handy.You then start talking with Trip, seeing if she has something she might want to exchange with you. Almost immediately the topic turns to magic, with your learned spells and the techniques Trip has learned as a monk. While most of the skills she's learned seem to require intense meditation, there is one she is willing to try and share immediately: the ability to heal others with your ki. Semi-magical in nature, it's still the easiest thing to pick up from her, and in exchange you demonstrate your friend Yamcha's Wolf Fang Fist. Shyly she explains she reluctant to engage in combat directly, though you tell her that it's still a useful skill to have. She... manages it, but not nearly as well as Yamcha or you can.Your brother meanwhile teaches Krillin Yamcha's Spirit Ball technique in exchange for the Destructo Disk, spending the rest of the time talking with Chi-chi. Finally, Baba returns."It has been settled, then. Undine, I thank you for your cooperation in this. You are up.""Undine?" you, Goku, and Acer all repeat. Suddenly, the water around the area begins to swirl, then seems to leap out and takes a humanoid shape on the arena. You can't seem to get a reading on it. Odd."Who is up first?">A. Volunteer>B. Stay back>C. Something else?
>>40956285Hit it with a thunder bolt pikachu!
>>40956326>tfw water is great at dissipating the energy generated by electricity, and it does basically nothing to water, save changing the temperature if exposed for a long enough time
>>40956381I'm fully expecting the electric magic not to work, but we gotta do it because its expected.Or Undine will change to ice and mist form to avoid it.
>>40956285>>C. Something else?Brobro should go since he has the fire Kamehameha
>>40956486Second, Deleting old vote
>>40956486I'll switch to this, deleted my vote too.
>>40956486Was about to go with A, but I like this. Backing.
>>40956486Water beats fire though...my pokemon knowledge is betraying me!
>>40956729Fire makes water into steam.
>>40956729If the fire is hot enough it can defeat water
>>40956729Do we have a grass type?
>>40956748>>40956756Won't he just reform out of the mist? I'm imagining a Buu-scenario here.
>>40956800If not, plant magic should be the next one on the list.
>>40955369>Thunder Flash!Wouldn't he need fire for that?
>>40956285You jump up and shout "I'll go!" at almost the same time as Goku. You and him look at each other intensely for a moment. Oh no he didn't. One. Two..."Rock, paper, scissors!"Goku picks rock. Good, reliable rock.You picked rock as well. Good, reliable rock.Unfortunately, your brother picked paper."Awww..." Goku's expression sinks alongside yours, Chi-chi and Krillin chuckling softly in amusement."Can't be a winner every time, sis!" he tells you and gives a thumbs up. "All right Mister Undine, the name is Acer Mahogany." he cracks his knuckles as he steps into the arena. "And I'll be your opponent here.""That is MISS Undine to you!" the water creature complains in an echoing, feminine voice. Well... huh. You should have expected this. She then takes on a noticeably more feminine form."You know the rules, Acer. Give up or fall in the water." Baba comments."Unfortunately for you, boy, the latter is rather difficult for me." Undine tells him with confidence. Your brother gulps.>A. Coach him telepathically>B. Let him deal with it on his own, just encourage him>C. Something else?
>>40956971>>B. Let him deal with it on his own, just encourage him
>>40956971Let him fight on his own until we have something to advise on. Gotta see what Undine's strengths and weaknesses are first. Also make sure Undine can't just sweep him away with the water surrounding the ring, that's cheating.
>>40956971Before the match begins ask "Isn't Undine technically in the water already, since she is made of it?" Then >B until we notice something
>>40956971If we give him advice it'd better be>“You must be shapeless, formless, like water. When you pour water in a cup, it becomes the cup. When you pour water in a bottle, it becomes the bottle. When you pour water in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Water can drip and it can crash. Become like water my friend.”
>>40957145>friendI believe you mean brother.
>>40957182He can't be both?
>>40957145Don't know the reference but that sounds kinda stupid
>>40957196Okay. I guess Bruce Lee is stupid.
>>40957145I tried to think of some other quote involving martial arts and water but the closest thing I could get was the Remember The Titans quote.>Water is for cowards. Water makes you weak. Water is for washing blood off that uniform and you don't get no blood on my uniform, boy you must be outside your mind! We are going to do up-downs, until Blue is no longer tired, and thirsty.
Wow. Either this fight is so epic or someone died mid-typing.
>>40957382>You must be swift as a coursing river, with all the force of a great typhoon. with all the strength of a raging fire, and mysterious as the dark side of the moon?
>>40957654>DOOOOOOODGE>Mfw we were the one who taught Piccolo Jr this....
>>40957682Now we must.
>>40957654Oh my god this worse then deathI hope Toriyama doesn't kill me!I really hope Tien will be okaaaay!GAY!
>>40957637>>40957677Food it was, apologies, wife and I had dinner.
>>40957721Wadja have? Something good I hope.
>>40957707>>40957720>>40957682I did not mean for this to happen. But I'm happy it did.
>>40957755My god that sounds good....
>>40957755Bacon...and pancakes...for dinner?!My god. The world I know is a lie. A LIE!
>>40957784I had a Klondike bar for dinner. I weigh 125 lbs. tops.
>>40957808High metabolism, fuck yeah. Although skinny doesn't mean fit...
>>40956971You scratch the back of your head. "Um... isn't she technically already in the water? I mean, she's made of it, so...""Undine's water is distinct from my own. She was very careful not to mix with it. At the same time, however, she could easily manipulate my water not to touch her." Baba clarifies."Don't worry, I won't pull anything cheap like fling all of it at you. I know fair play. I might damage Baba's fish." she adds, the old woman giving a nod. "Besides, it only counts if you actually fall in and off the arena." Undine gives with a chuckle. "Are you ready to face me, boy?""Definitely." he tells her."You can do it, brobro!" you shout."Come on, Acer!" Chi-chi cheers alongside you.Baba clears her throat. "Begin!"Acer immediately tries to rush her, trying to gauge her movements. She effortlessly dodges around him, water flowing along and around him. In frustration, he tries for an energy attack, his Revenant Driver. Undine merely flows around it before it connects. However, your brother quickly keeps up the pressure, appearing behind her and launching a Kamehameha, and adding some fire magic to it to the surprise of Goku, Chi-chi and Krillin. Undine avoids this too, but seems far more concerned of it hitting her."Well... looks like you have some surprises up your sleeves." she comments with a surprising amount of enthusiasm. "That could have hurt."You grit your teeth. She's toying with him. Telepathically, you contact your brother. 'You must fight water LIKE water. You must be shapeless, formless, like water. When you pour water in a cup, it becomes the cup. When you pour water in a bottle, it becomes the bottle. When you pour water in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Water can drip and it can crash. Become like water, brother.''What movie did you take that from?' he accuses.'No idea!' you admit.(cont.)
>>40958102Acer stops and follows your advice. Undine tries to go on the offensive, and your brother focuses on her movements. Where once she was effortlessly dodging him, now he was effortlessly dodging her. They both back up."You're a better fighter than I thought you'd be." Acer admits. "But I'm not a Tournament Finalist because of my good looks."Undine smirks. "Flirting won't get you anywhere, boy~""...shut up." he says with a blush. Acer then brings his hands together and seems to float upwards. "All right... let's see how you like this one! PHANTOM FLARE!" What seems like a wall of flame explodes around your brother, blinding everyone and filling the arena. When you can finally see again, Undine is weakly trying to hold her shape together, steam rising from her body. "Ah, woops...""I... I give..." she mutters and slowly makes her way to the water. Acer then collapses, panting heavily.>A. That. Was. AWESOME!>B. Ask if he's all right and help him up>C. You blushed at her~>D. Something else?
>>40958133>B. Ask if he's all right and help him up>C. You blushed at her~
>>40958133Undine and Acer sitting in a pool. F-R-E-N-C-Hing. First comes love, second comes marriage, then comes some weird water spirit/tuffle baby in a battle pod carriage.
>>40958133>>A. That. Was. AWESOME!>>C. You blushed at her~I guess that was his ultimate move.
>>40958133>A. That. Was. AWESOME!>B. Ask if he's all right and help him up>C. You blushed at her~
>>40958133Now we need to top Phantom Fire with...Phantom Storm!
>>40958133>A. That. Was. AWESOME!>C. You blushed at her~
>>40958133Both you and Goku look at your brother in absolute glee. You and the monkey boy shout together, "That. Was. AWESOME!""Oww..." he groans. "Not... not doing that again any time soon."You rush over to your brother, Chi-chi coming with. "Need help up?""Please." he groans. You take one arm, and Chi-chi takes the other. And... you can't help it. You give a cheeky grin. "Brobro. Youuuu blushed at her~""Shut up." he grumbles under his breath."You kinda did, Acer." Chi-chi adds.He seems to take that a bit more personally. "I... look, I don't even know how old she is!""Four hundred and seventeen." Undine pops her head out of the water, giggling. Wow. Okay maybe not. As you help him sit down, Baba calls out her next fighter. A person with a fox mask and... a halo above his head. Just like your teacher had. The monkey boy sniffs at the air, somewhat calmed by the person. He seems strong, but not as strong as any of you."This one has given me a special request. He would like to fight Goku.">A. You wanna fight him>B. Let Goku go and fight>C. Something else?
>>40958483>>B. Let Goku go and fight
>>40958483Go ahead Goku. I'm sure he's not your long dead adopted Grandpa or anything.
>>40958483>B. Let Goku go and fight
>>40958483>B>tease Acer about being taken more aback by Chi-chi mentioning him blushing, telepathically
>>40958483>B. Let Goku go and fightAll these choices
>>40958483Ask Undine if she can teach us water magic. Also let Goku fight.
>>40958555Yeah, thats an interesting idea.Combine water and electricity magic?
>>40958693Ooh yeah and then Acer can learn it too. Water and fire up in this bitch,
We're gonna master all 4 elements right?
>>40958983Avatar is shit
>>40958983>implying there's not more
>>40958998Yeah. I don't like blue space cat elves either.
>>40958483You sit back and give Goku a little nudge. "Go get 'em, monkey boy.""I'll be done quick, Maple!" he gives with a wide grin, Trip adding to the wishing of good luck to him. Stepping onto the ground, Goku gives a respectful bow, as does his opponent. "You know, you remind me of someone, mister...""I get that." the dead person says. "Now... let us begin."As the two fight, you lean out towards the water. "Heeeey, Undine, are you still there?" The water spirit pokes her head out again. "Those were some impressive tricks, think you could ever teach them to us?""Sorry, most of that is innate. I can no more explain that to you than you can explain how to breathe to me." she moves around the lake, approaching closer. "Though you may be able to learn how to control water quite easily, if you're as talented as your cute little brother over there.""Stop that." Acer glares as his face glows bright red. You smirk and telepathically tease him about him getting even more flustered over Chi-chi confirming that she saw him blush. 'Yeah yeah, laugh it up sis. Your day will come.' He then turns to look at Goku's match. It's about this time you finally notice that the fighter has a Power Level of 1005. Not as strong as Izumi, but tough. Then it starts climbing, along with Goku's.(cont.)
>>40959008We should master spirit energy too. Tri-beam, Mafuba Wave (I think that uses spirit instead of ki) and whatever else spirit energy can be applied too.
>>40959031"Meeee...." you can hear Goku say."HAAAAA!" the other voice declares. Two bright beams of blue collide, but Goku's quickly overpowers the other person's. He seems to be engulfed by the blast, but you notice that Goku made sure he wouldn't hurt the man. He stands there, panting. "Heh heh... y-you've certainly grown strong, Goku. S-stronger than I ever thought you would. As is, you clearly surpass me now. I'm so proud of you, my boy.""Huh? What do you mean by that?" he scratches his head, tail wagging. "Do I know you from somewhere, mister?""But you'll need to get stronger for the trials ahead. Certain people will be far, far stronger than you are. And others will have special... techniques. Like so: Hoooooooo..." the man tells the monkey boy. Suddenly his Power Level seems to skyrocket. A reddish, blazing aura surrounds his body. "KAIO-KEN!">A. Kaio-what?>B. Ask Trip or Baba if they know what this is>C. Mind read?>D. Something else?
>>40959079>A. Kaio-what?>B. Ask Trip or Baba if they know what this is
>>40959079>A. Kaio-what?>C. Mind read
>>40959079>>A. Kaio-what?>>B. Ask Trip or Baba if they know what this is
>>40959079>>A. Kaio-what?>>B. Ask Trip or Baba if they know what this is>Yell DODGE
>>40959079Ooh. Gohan trained with King Kai? Awesome. Maybe he knows Spirit Bomb too.If Goku can master Kaioken and Spirit Bomb after this event, maybe he can get SSJ before DBZ.
>>40959137>If Goku can master Kaioken and Spirit Bomb after this event, maybe he can get SSJ before DBZ.Kaioken requires some very hard training. Helps being dead so you don't blow yourself up and rip yourself to pieces learning it.
>>40959031Actually I can explain breathing.When you breathe in, or inhale, your diaphragm contracts (tightens) and moves downward. This increases the space in your chest cavity, into which your lungs expand. The intercostal muscles between your ribs also help enlarge the chest cavity. They contract to pull your rib cage both upward and outward when you inhale. Now tell us your secret water woman!
>>40959101The after-image technique needs to be heavily abused.
>>40959079"Kaio-what?" you feel the need to say. You... the man's Power Level jumped up to 2010. Holy... you immediately ask Baba, "Wh-what is... GOKU, DODGE!""Huh?" Goku looks at you and gets an elbow to the jaw."Shouting dodge is more distracting than helpful, sis!" Acer shouts at you."So soon... you must be getting desperate." she chuckles as the man lands a series of powerful blows on Goku."T-Trip, wh-" you turn to Goku's friend, and her face seems to have gone a pale white."The... the technique of the gods..." she mutters. Wuh-oh. "The Kai of the North, his... I've only seen the faintest of rumors in the scrolls we collected of such a thing. That... that it actually exists..."The aura fades around the man, and he seems far more exhausted from it. Goku struggles to stand at first, but then lunges at him, trying to gain the upper hand. He knocks his opponent down... and then the man grabs Goku's tail. The monkey boy goes limp. "I thought I told you to train this too.""W-wuhAAAOW!" Goku shouts as he's slammed into the ground by the man. Okay what the hell is going on? How did... You immediately delve into the man's mind.'Oh my boy, come on, you are stronger than this, don't let up on your grandpa just yet...'...grandpa?>A. Telepathically ask the man if he is Gohan>B. Encourage Goku>C. Something else?
>>40959384Goku! Drunken Monkey Style!
>>40959384>A. Telepathically ask the man if he is Gohan>B. Encourage Goku
>>40959384>>B. Encourage Goku
>>40959403Wait, crap that's Gohan's technique.Well it might work...
>>40959384>B. Encourage Goku
>>40956887>Just realized that Thunder Flash is Pikkon's techniqueOh. I get why you reference fire. Right. Durp.
>>40959384'You... are you Gohan?' you send the man a telepathic message. He keeps slamming Goku into the ground.'So she's a telepath like my old master, huh? Kids these days...'You grit your teeth. Yeah, he is. You leap up and shout to the monkey boy, "Come on Goku, you can do this! You gotta tough it out!""Sis when his tail is grabbed-" you place your hand over your brother's mouth. No. Goku CAN do this. He HAS to."You can't beat me in the next Tournament if you give up now!" you scream at him. Gohan continues, then starts to swing Goku around by the tail... but his grip isn't as tight as it was. He's physically exhausted, you can tell, from that technique. Just enough, JUST ENOUGH, that Goku regains some strength for a moment, kicking him in the arm and then the face, knocking him down and cracking the mask."Ahh... owww..." Goku holds his tail, blowing on it. "H-how did... how did you know?"The man starts laughing. "Amazing. Truly amazing, Goku. Well, I give up." He removes the fractured mask. Goku's eyes go wide and start to water."GRANDPA!" he shouts as he rushes to the man, crying into his chest as they embrace. It's... the first you've ever seen him so emotional. After all this time alone..."That was a risky move, Gohan. You might want to be more careful next time." Baba comments. "You're lucky that didn't take up any of your time left." The man laughs, hugging Goku tight as the boy continues to sob, and then calls you all over."So many friends he's made. Hello there.">A. Introduce yourself properly>B. Flashy introduction!>C. Ask the man what that technique was>D. Something else?
>>40959780>>B. Flashy introduction!>>C. Ask the man what that technique was
>>40959780Lets do a Flashy Team Pose, ala Ginyu Force Style with full introductions and flashing backgrounds.
>>40959780Also mental note, train Goku's tail before Gohan tries to take it off.
>>40959780>B. Flashy introduction!>C. Ask the man what that technique was

>>40959931Oh Kami, the pose-off between Maple and Ginyu will be legendary. Then we need to get some Cross-dimensional action and have a pose off with Kaguya from DBZ Human Quest.
>>40960023Kaguya a shit
>>40960057Me no like Kaguya. He a shit, he a big doodoo head and me no like him!
>>40960072See the caveman agrees with me!
>>40960091Me am neanderthal. Totally different. Also me be sarcastic. Me really enjoy DB: Human Quest and wish it still be continuing.
>>40960023He'd probably fall asleep halfway through.
>>40959780You spin into the air and touch down. "I am Maple Mahogany, World Martial Arts Champion, Turtle School Master, and a defender of this planet!" You kneel forward on one knee, making a V-shape with your arms.Chi-chi joins in on the fun. "I am the Ox Princess, Chi-chi! Tournament Finalist and another Turtle School Master!" She moves to the side, her arms going in an arc, then pulling one back, thrusting it forward, and then the other back.Even Krillin decides to do it, because why not? "And I am Krillin! Also a Turtle School Master and Tournament finalist!" He kneels sideways and makes a thinking posture, chin on his fist.To everyone's surprise, even Trip adds to the pose. "And I am Xuanzang Genjo Sanzo, the one called Tripitaka. Traveling monk and friend to Son Goku." She makes a graceful bow behind you, holding her staff carefully so it doesn't bump in into you, Chi-chi, or Krillin. Amused by your little stunt, Undine even adds a little splash effect behind you all.Acer stares in disbelief. "You're infectious, sis. Like a virus.""Thank you!" you take his intended snarky insult as a compliment."Oh my, hahaha!" Gohan approaches you all and bows respectfully, Goku clapping. "And three girls, I must say Goku, quite impressive. Which one is your..." the dead man nudges his grandson in the arm and winks."Huh?" the monkey boy just tilts his head in confusion."Mister Gohan, what exactly was that technique you used?" you ask."A powerful, sacred art. I learned it while training with my new master in the world beyond, King Kai.">A. 'King' Kai?>B. Can you teach us?>C. What'd you mean by his...>D. Something else?
>>40960190>>A. 'King' Kai?>>B. Can you teach us?You're a smart girl Maple, you don't need to ask C.
>>40960190>A. 'King' Kai?>B. Can you teach us?
>>40960190>A, and telepathically tell Gohan that you don't think Goku understands what a girlfriend is
>>40960190>>A. 'King' Kai?Trip did mention that there are sacred scrolls mentioning it somewhere.He won't be here long enough to teach it I fear.
>>40960190D.>I'm guessing we can't learn it unless we're dead.>Got anything else you can teach us?
>>40960239Guy thinks marriage is a type of food.Of course he doesn't know what a girlfriend is.Guess Gohan never got around too it before he got crushed by Oozaru Goku.
>>40960190>A. 'King' Kai?>B. Can you teach us?>D. Telepathically tell him that Goku probably thinks a girlfriend is some kind of food more than likely....
>>40960282We don't know he thinks marriage is food IC.
>>40960408"Hey Goku, whats marriage?""I dunno, does it taste good?""Well, if you get the right person it does.""...I....I think I need an adult."
>>40960327This, but don't say food, say something you eat.
>>40960456Goku doesn't think like that, He'd probably think it's a special kind of food that get's tastier the more people you have around it
>>40960508How about no
>>40960190'Mister Gohan, Goku still doesn't know what a girlfriend is. He probably thinks marriage is like, some kind of food. Or something.''Still? Huh, I'd have thought... wait, then are you-''Nah.' You shake your head. "Soooo... can you teach us such a technique, or would we need to... you know...?" you rub the back of your head."Best I can give are the basics." he strokes his mustache. "But you won't be able to learn it in a day. It took me more than a year to learn it, and that was on a King Kai's planet, where the gravity is ten times that of the Earth's.""T-ten times?!" Chi-chi and Krillin gasp at him."That reminds me... this, 'King' Kai, what do you mean by that? You've actually been trained by a god?" you ask. Trip seems like she wants to know as well."Well, the Kai of the North is his proper title, but to anyone under his domain it is proper to call him 'King' as a formality after you've meet him." Gohan explains, still patting Goku on the head. He seems for you to motion to read his mind to learn more. You do so and... are surprised by what you find. While Gohan seems to think of the god as a bit goofy, he has tremendous respect for him, and the fact that he requires one to have a sense of humor before training them... well, you can certainly agree to that."If you're all done with this little reunion, I do have a fortune to tell." Baba floats over, eyeing Trip. The woman gives an embarrassed bow and apology.>A. Apologize and get on with it>B. Ask if Gohan can stay and explain things for a while>C. Something else?
>>40960609>A. Apologize and get on with it>B. Ask if Gohan can stay and explain things for a while
>>40960609>>A. Apologize and get on with it>B. Ask if Gohan can stay and explain things for a while
>>40960609Can we learn to see the future too? Snap-action clairvoyancy would be handy in battle. Well. Second thought it didn't really help Kanassa so never mind. Stupid ass psychic powers.
For some reason I suddenly hope that King Kai isn't such a let down and actually figured out how to do the Kaio-ken himself.Apparently he couldn't pull it off but could teach others how to do it.Just like Yajiswole, I want King Kai to be secretly buff as all fuck.
>>40960697Already have it. Kinda like Spidey-sense.
>>40960697We won't learn to see the future until we go to Frieza Planet 419.But you don't want to go to Frieza Planet 419.
>>40960697Yeah, they already have a very minor foresight.It's been used in quest a few times. Just a battle sight though.
>>40960609"S-sorry Auntie Baba." you tell the old woman. "Er... would it be okay if Gohan stays here for a while to teach us some things?" You ask, Goku explaining about the Dragon Ball he's been keeping."He has more than a few hours left, but first let me do this, Maple." she says with a hint of annoyance. Baba looks into her crystal ball and chants. In the ball, a pair of doors appear, with demons marching out of them slowly, all of them laughing. You see an odd sword lodged in the side of one, keeping it held open."Well, that seems simple. All we have to do is take that sword out and everything will be fine." your brother comments."It will not be that simple, Acer. That blade is kept in place by Shura's power. He must be defeated in order to close the doors once more." Baba explains, an image of what you assume to be him appearing. Another image appears, of a gigantic-looking blue demon dressed in green and an almost human one next to him, with pale purple skin, pinkish hair, and a blue outfit, the second appearing to be female. They are arguing with another female demon, but all you can see of her is white hair and blue skin.(cont.)
>>40960714I wanna see True Kamehameha performed by Goku, so he can get swole while as a kid.
>>40961070"Hmm... you may have sympathizers on your-" Baba stops as the image of a human girl, not much older than Chi-chi appears, wearing a night gown and with deep red hair. Some sinister force seems to be... taking her away."He... he isn't..." Trip gasps in horror.Gohan steps forward, an aura of determination emanating from him. "Then it's settled. For every moment I have left, I will help you all prepare to face Shura."Goku tugs on his sleeve, finally able to wipe away his tears. "Thank you, Grandpa. I promise I'll do my best!""I believe you, my boy. I know you will." Gohan says as he turns to your group. You all give a nod of agreement. Damn right you're gonna do this.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jSTdqvea_K8>YOU HAVE COMPLETED THE FIRST SOCIAL LINK WITH TRIP>DRAGON BALL TUFFLE QUEST #18 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 canAnd that's all for tonight, folks! A bit late, but I'll be here like usual to answer questions and such. Did ya'll have fun?
>>40961104Good run.Power levels here are weird, but in the series only a handful are stated, the stuff otherwise can be ignored.Maple and Acer may end up being elemental masters.Benders?
>>40961104Thanks for the run Kato.I forget, do we have an Ultimate yet?
>>40961131I'm not feeling the 'Jack of all Trades' route. I really want to specialize HEAVILY into lightning, maybe with some water to supplement.
>>40961160Getting a person wet, then shocking them would do more damage, as salt water conducts electricity really well, and skin has salt in/on it.
>>40961131Thanks for playing!They're skewed even further by this taking place in the Path to Power timeline, and sort of working to fit what'll be challenging enough for ya'll.I doubt you'll be able to go the Magus route, but we'll see.>>40961133For now I'm counting Poltergeist Blitz as your Ultimate, functioning much like Crono's Lightning spells, with a bit more "oomph" to them. Acer's Phantom Flare is functionally similar to Lucca's Flare spell.>>40961160>>40961187There's an idea.Also, any thoughts on Undine or Trip? Gohan being trained under King Kai?
>>40961131Demon power levels are weird in DBZ. They're either Nappa level at best or way stronger than Frieza. Same with the Kais and the Gods of Destruction now that I think about it.
>>40961236>Also, any thoughts on Undine or Trip?Cool, not enough screentime yet to really get a grasp on them yet.>Gohan being trained under King Kai?Awesome
>>40961236Undine needs to become Acer's waifu. Or like...his guardian elemental spirit or something. Balance out his fire prowess with a water entity.Gohan being trained by King Kai is awesome and will pay off whenever one of us die and need more training.I like Trip but I have no idea what your plans are for her, so just gotta wait and see.
>>40961236>Also, any thoughts on Undine or Trip? Gohan being trained under King Kai?Need more time with Trip.Undine is fine, Dragon Ball already had elementals.Makes sense for King Kai to look to earth sooner, too much converging on it here, and better to get Gohan's advice then.Last Truffles, only sane Saiyan, demons acting up here, ect.
>>40961342Plus it just ties in DBZ storyline better with Dragonball, Toriyama forgets and makes up so much stuff that his universe tends to be a bit screwy.
>>40961297Acer is Chi-chi's
>>40961268Shura is going to be several time stronger than even Goku. Even in the show, he outclassed Goku IMMENSELY. Here... he has help. In fact, you might meet a demon even stronger than Freeza next thread. Most likely not fight, just meet.>>40961270>>40961297>>40961342All right, that's encouraging.You're probably going to be spending the next couple threads with Trip, so should be some time to get to know her better.Undine might show up more around Baba's Palace, I'll see what I should do with her. She probably won't end up romantically interested in your brother, she's just a 417 year old flirt.Glad Gohan went over well, kinda hoped it would be believable enough given all that's happened.>>40961372A lot of Dragon Ball is expanded upon in filler, especially earlier on. Did you know that Pilaf didn't appear in the manga until near the end of the Hunt for the Dragon Balls? While in the show he actually has a lot to do. Hell the anime even shows Goku and Chi-chi's kinda adorable, kinda awesome quest to save the Ox King's kingdom and actually get married. Chi-chi especially kinda feels more like someone Goku WOULD get along with and live together with during it. Meanwhile Toriyama himself has said rather bluntly that he's terrible at writing romance. Which to be honest is probably to the series' benefit, at times. Kept Dragon Ball from becoming the... well, I'm sure you're all aware of some of the issues certain popular modern shounen have with depicting romance.
>>40961585>Most likely not fight, just meet.>implying anons are smart enough not to pick a fight >especially because, lolham or lolIC
>>40961603We aren't that bad man. If Maple sees she is SORELY outclassed she'll change methods.
>>40961619>We aren't that bad man.
>>40961619>If Maple sees she is SORELY outclassed she'll change methods.
>>40961603>>40961619>>40961637>>40961649I'll put it this way. Even if you TRY to fight that demon, you won't be able to do much more than bring about mild amusement. Shura will be a challenge. That demon... well, you'll see.
>>40961585Next we need a cool demon prince too become our ally. Like...Dabura's long lost son. Named something like... Abura or Kabura (Abra kadabra geddit?) and he's our Magus.
>>40961691Nah, we'll just sit there and charge a kamehemaha for a full hour, see what happens.
>>40961705>Magus in DragonballI want that so bad.
>>40961705>>40961831Dabura's son is certainly the kind of person that might want to tag along with you, though more out of amusement. Though he's certainly no Magus in terms of ability. He's also like, well over 300 years old. You'd also have to probably get past his aunt and maybe uncle-in-law first.>>40961737This amuses me.
>>40961859Still. Having an honest to goodness demon would be fun to hang around with.
>>40961859Here, I'll give you a piece of advice.For what, it doesn't matter.I just feel like you, as well as everyone alive could benefit from this advice.
>>40961942Even Steven giving motivational advice amuses me greatly.
>>40961930Oh certainly. We'll see what comes up later on.>>40961942>>40961978Primus, someone else still remembers that show.
>>40962066Ren is and always will be my waifu. Especially since she's the voice of Kim Possible. Hell I still have the song 'Ren got an F' and 'We went to the moon in 1969' stuck in my head.
>>40962298Son of a bitch. That's going to be in my head until I'm dragged off to bed.That's when they made a landing that was luuuunar~Also thread successfully archived.
>>40962385Well, it was all just a nightmare anyway so have fuun.
