>You are one of two young Tuffle twins, thrown at Earth starting in early Dragon Ball by your "father">"Canon" has already taken a sharp turn from the "norm," as you'll readily see, and can take even sharper turns depending on the thread's action/dialogue choices and ideas>Stats and dice mechanics will be used, and explained when needed as the quest progresses>Let's all try to have some fun, ok?Previously on Dragon Ball Tuffle Quest: You've passed the prelims and your first round match of the 22nd World Martial Arts Tournament! Can you and the rest of the Turtle School keep up the momentum against the Crane School?
>>41246790https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K8JwUGR9SokWith Tien's victory against Launch, a short lunch break was called. You sit with the rest of the Turtle School, save Goku, with Bulma, Puar, Oolong, and the Ox King sitting with you, Launch herself offering to buy everyone food. The monkey boy meanwhile was sitting with Arale's group, chatting with the robot girl. Across the way, the Crane School could be seen celebrating their recent victory, apparently ignoring their losses, Yamcha glaring at them."You almost had him. What's that Tien guy made of?" the young man grumbled, eyes fixed on the triclops."Eh, you'll get 'em next round, Yamcha. He's tough but I don't think he has many more tricks." Launch answered, bringing over two ice cream cones."Even if he wins, he'll have to face Maple or Chi-chi in the semi-finals." Bulma comments. "You guys got this.""Tch. Thanks for the vote of confidence." Yamcha grumbles in return."Oh don't you start again. You know that's not what I meant." the purple-haired girl sighed as she rolled her eyes. Well then. You're kinda picking up something between them here...>A. Tell Yamcha you believe he'll win>B. Ask what's up with Bulma and her boyfriend>C. Ask Master Roshi something about that strange prelim competitor, the demon guy>D. Go see what Goku and Arale are talking about>E. Check on the Crane School>F. Something else?Pick 3 at most.
>>41246814>B. Ask what's up with Bulma and her boyfriend>C. Ask Master Roshi something about that strange prelim competitor, the demon guy>E. Check on the Crane SchoolYamcha already knows we believe he'll win
>>41246790how was the anniversary Kato?Also >E. Check on the Crane School>C. Ask Master Roshi something about that strange prelim competitor, the demon guy
>>41246814>B. Ask what's up with Bulma and her boyfriend>C. Ask Master Roshi something about that strange prelim competitor, the demon guy>E. Check on the Crane School
wohoa, late start today
>>41246875Was good. We went to Comic Con, ended up spending a couple hundred bucks between the two of us.>>41246899Apologies, had work.
>>41246814>>A. Tell Yamcha you believe he'll win>C. Ask Master Roshi something about that strange prelim competitor, the demon guyIf there is time>E. Check on the Crane School
>>41246790>purple hairedI thought Bulma's hair was blue, or is that another one of the "sharp deviations from the norm"
>>41246940Bulma's hair is blue, Think Kato's just confused
>>41246940Path to Power movie version of Bulma, has her manga counterpart's purple hair.
>>41246940It changes, one time it was red.
>>41246985Nah Blue hair Bulma is better Kato and you know it
>>41246814>C. Ask Master Roshi something about that strange prelim competitor, the demon guy
Maple's ki is lowering from all the healing she's been doing right?Maybe she should research a method that allows her to recover ki quickly and efficiently.Aside from Senzu beans that is.
>>41246858>>41246875>>41247028>Can choose three things>Only chooses two or oneAre you fucker's retarded or something?
>>41247079Maybe they are indifferent to the other options. Why are you so hostile?>>41247061Yeah we should stop playing Medic for a little bit.
>>41247079Oh I'm sorry."HEY MASTER ROSHI WASN'T THAT DEMON GUY WEIRD" "Yes...I'm afraid-" "WELL THAT'S NICE I'M GONNA GO SEE HOW GOKU IS GOKU HOW ARE YOU" "Hiya, Maple! Arale and I were just-" "OKAY SEE YA LATER HEY TIEN WHAT'S UP" "I still hate you." "GOOD TO KNOW"
>>41247079Basically this>>41247133The less options we choose the more fleshed out the ones we do choose are.
Bulma x Vegeta otp
>>41247246Nah fuck Vegeta, Yamcha x Bulma, Bro's before salty fucker anyday
>>41247246OTP's are no fun if they're canon
>>41247306OTPs aren't supposed to be fun, they're supposed to be true
>>41247330Well its canon so...congrats I guess?
>>41246814"Uh... Bulma, no offense, but... there something up between you two? I mean I guess I'm still kind of playing catch-up here, what with not seeing you all for a year." you question. Acer looks at you like you just lit a fuse to a kiloton's worth of explosives. Launch hands the ice cream to Krillin and Chi-chi and facepalms."Oh, sure, there's nothing." Bulma replied in a way that you KNEW meant there were a number of things wrong. Woops."Oh for the love of... is this STILL about the birthday thing?!" Yamcha demanded defensively. Yikes. "It was a mistake! And you still haven't apologized for that other thing!""ME apologize for THAT?! Oh, I'm sorry mister martial artist, your training is more important than your girlfriend's birthday, no big deal.""Can we not do this right now? Please?" Launch groaned.Bulma and Yamcha glared at each other and grunted out a "Fine." simultaneously. Well, gonna have to, uh, check up on that later. You turn to Master Roshi and nudge him in the shoulder. "Hey, Master, so, there was this strange competitor I fought in the prelims. Name was Tambourine, seems like he sort of had some less than savory plans for the Tournament. He wasn't that strong, but was kind of cryptic..."The old man raised an eyebrow at the comment, repeating the name. "Tambourine... Tambourine... hrmn... I don't think I know any fighter by that name, but it does ring a bell somewhere. I'll keep an eye out, kiddo. You folks should be enough to handle him, in any case." He pats you on the shoulder with a prideful smile."Thanks, Master." you say with a grin. You then turn to the celebrating Crane School students, walking over.>A. Congratulate Tien>B. Taunt, taunt, taunt!>C. Ask if Shen's been thinking about your comment>D. Something else?
>>41247345>A. Congratulate Tien>C. Ask if Shen's been thinking about your comment
>>41247295Yamcha's Yamcha tho, Vegeta's a real man- errrr saiyan
>>41247364Guess what, This isn't canon bitch, Yamcha's relevant
>>41247345>A. Congratulate Tien"Launch is the 7th strongest person I know!"
>>41247400I am also tired of playing marriage counselor for them. If it doesn't seem to working out then let them split up. Its better than dragging it out.
If you think about it, letting Chi-Chi win the brobowl, the only prize worth winning ITT tbh, will make all her dreams come true because her son will be a super genius due to superior Tuffle genetics. On the bad side, it takes away the only husbando worth marrying.
>>41247673>super genius due to superior Tuffle genetics.Is that how that works?Fuck I need Tuffles in my CK2 game.
>>41247439Heyyy, Yamcha's sorta like the Lucentio to Bulma's Bianca!
>>41247673Why did that damn doctor make us blood-related siblings if we were to repopulate?
>>41247704All I am saying is that if they can't work things out I am not going try to force it for some OTP or something.>>41247727We were made for Revengence
>>41247727Playing too much FE fam
>>41247673Oh fuck off already, You're just getting annoying now
>>41247727Well, two people wouldn't be enough to restart the species even if they weren't related (I think you need at least 100).The doctor made us as test subjects but didn't like the results and just gave up.
>>41247727You can hide and post in other quests, anon, but we're all wise to your shenanigans.
>>41247727he's into that
>>41247762This is literally the first time I've posted, since catching up in the archives. Don't get mad over little things, anyone.
>>41247798>This is literally the first time I've postedYeah and i'm a fucking fairy queen
>>41247820What you do with your boyfriend is none of my business, my friend.
>Learn the Spirit Bomb from King Kai>Participate in the next tournament>Spend times between rounds charging up the Spirit BombIf it gets too big, people will just forfeit before they fight.
>>41247906Excessive for a friendly competition anon.
>>41247345"Congrats, Tien! Launch is like, the 7th strongest person I know, or something." you say with a pat on his back. The triclops glares in response."...let me guess, yourself or that monkey boy at the top, right?""Mnnah, Arale's probably stronger than either than us." you admit with a smile, pointing at the robot girl."Glad you helped clean up the damage Pilaf's robot caused, Goku." Senbei could be heard commenting to your monkey boy friend. Well, sounds like they really were busy in Penguin Village."...the one with the glasses?" Tien asked with the same glare on his face. "I couldn't sense her ki. I thought she was just a nobody.""Aheh. Weren't watching her prelims match, huh? Arale's on a different league of strength than all of us." you tell him. "But, strength isn't everything, is it? Skills are needed to back that up.""...indeed." the young man agrees."Enjoy your time while you can, Maple, because my boy Tien will be taking the title of Champion from you." Shen tells you with an almost malicious grin, Tien grinning as well.You turn your eyes to him, smirking a little. "Thought about what I've said at all, Crane Hermit?" Shen... stays silent, looking away from you."Enough. Go pester your own friends, brat." Tao hisses at you. Soon, the break is over, and the fighters are called back to the arena."The next match is against returning competitors Giran and Acer Mahogany! Both competitors must be itching to finally make it past the first round, but who will come out on top?""I've got plenty of new tricks, kid. The winner will be me." Giran tells your brother with a grin."Hah, you're not the only one who's been getting stronger." Acer says, cracking his knuckles.>A. Watch brobro's match>B. Wish him luck and go somewhere else (specify)>C. Talk with someone (who?)>D. Something else?
>>41247960>A. Watch brobro's match
>>41247933So is the destruction of the moon and the catastrophic effects it would have on the environment. There's no reason Jackie Chun couldn't have just chopped off goku's tail.
>>41247960>>A. Watch brobro's matchTake a minute to rejuvenate some Ki as well, if possible.
>>41248001Regardless do you really think Maple in character would want to go into a competition with a big I WIN button like that? She wants to have fun and win but not like that.
>>41247960>>B. Wish him luck and go somewhere else (specify)This is going to be a stomp. Find somewhere quiet to meditate and recharge our ki more quickly.
>>41247933Speaking of excessive attacks>Saiyans coming to Earth in a year>Better start up the Spirit Bomb>1 year later, Saiyans are approaching Earth>"Hey Vegeta, Earth's moon is awfully bright huh?">"...That's no moon"
>>41248074What if it misses? You just lost a year of training.
>>41248074Do you think spirit bombs give off blutz waves?
>>41248004I second this. Maybe we shouldn't have healed so much during the previous rounds.At least we won't be able to heal the robots, so we'll save ki on that.
>>41247906>>41248074Please do not try to get yourselves killed. Earth's Dragon Balls still have their limitation, and it's hard to learn techniques like that on Earth while you're at this level.
>>41247960"You can do it, brobro." you tell him, tapping fists. Chi-chi seems to smile at him as he walks into the ring. You then fly up a little onto the top of what's left of the wall and meditate a bit while watching Acer fight."Begin!"Your brother takes things easily for the start, letting Giran throw the first few punches and dodging easily. He then catches Giran's fist and tosses the monster into the air. Giran stops himself, but Acer follows that up with a hard punch to the monster's gut, then kicks him down to the ground. For a moment, Giran seems too dazed to continue, and the Announcer starts counting. At the 8 count however, Giran springs back to life and seems to launch some strange sort of pink slime at your brother."Tch... this didn't work against Goku, why do you think it'll work against me?" Acer asks, and attempt to break it... but fails. "...uh-oh.""That's an improvement on the Guruguru Gum! Buyobuyo Gum! You WON'T get out of that!" the monster says with a chuckle. Acer again attempts to break free, but can't. "Hahaha! You might as well give up nURGHK!" Giran is interrupted by another kick to his gut. This one does put him out for the count."Acer Mahogany advances! Congratulations!"As Giran is brought past you all, your brother flies over frantically. "Maple! Need a bit of help here!">A. Try to break the gum yourself>B. Try a ki attack>C. See if you can manage to cut it>D. Something else?
>>41248490>>B. Try a ki attackJust a fine Geist Magnum or equiv should cut it.
>>41248490>B. Try a ki attack
>>41248490>C. See if you can manage to cut itmight as well use the sword for something
>>41248490It's like gum right? Maybe we can freeze it and smash it off.Too bad we don't know any ice magic.Maybe there's a freezer that we can use?
>>41248569Have you seen that thing? Its going to get stuck so easily. Probably catch on one of the hooks or something.
>>41248490>D. CUT IT WITH YOUR SWORD!
>>41248490We're trying to conserve energy, remember?>>D. Something else?Tell your brother that he should try not to rely on you so much, and to learn how to solve his own problems himself.
>>41248490>>B. Try a ki attack
>>41248691That's option c knucklehead>>41248573I don't think so, but I think there's a cooler
>>41248490>C.If that doesn't work, then combine it with >B
>>41248724Nah, he'll catch a fucking cold
>>41248758Look, we have to get this gum chilled somehow.
>>41248808But all these ideas are kurizay didn't work out so well
>>41248829it's alright, we were out of Frieza Race members with English Names
>>41248490>>41248697Supporting, every child has to leave the nest sooner or later.
>>41249015Are you kidding, he pulls our ass out of fire just as much.
>>41249051And you want to put his on ice? That reminds me of a song...
>>41248490"All right brobro, just stand perfectly still..." you tell him, getting Shura's Sword out of the storage Capsule. Everyone around you looks at you in a mix of confusion and terror. "And a one, and a two, and a three!" You slowly try to cut the gum... and it just seems to get the blade stuck in it. Arale and Obotchaman are called forward to their match."...please get this thing off of me." Acer requests, eyes fixed on the sword that is stuck awfully close to his face. You give it a pull... and no dice. Goku, Chi-chi, and Krillin all try to pull with you, and it just seems to get the blade MORE stuck in the gum."Grrhh... Okay, enough of this." You make a gun shape with your hand and build up some ki. "GEIST MAGNUM!" You fire at the gum, Acer trying his best to take a defend himself if any breaks through. It... doesn't even scratch it."Well... this is a bit awkward." Acer says with a slight blush across his face. "Uh... maybe we coul- GOKU NO!" The monkey boy tries to chew on the gum. He takes a bite and tries to pull, pull with all his might, stretching the gum... but it STILL doesn't break. Goku tries chewing on it in frustration. Tien seems to be chuckling to himself lowly, Tao and Chiaotzu doing the same."Okay, new plan: we FREEZE it out!" you declare. Acer looks at you with a glare. "...what? Do YOU have any bright ideas. Because if you do then by all means, figure it out b-""And the winner of the match is: Arale Norimaki!" the Announcer guy declares, to the... audible "awws" of the crowd? Oh, huh. Right. The match. You see a smiling Arale and a blushing but gleefully smiling Obotchaman exit the ring.>A. Ask how the match went>B. Ask Arale if she might want to help your guys out a bit>C. Something else?
>>41249131>>B. Ask Arale if she might want to help your guys out a bit"Just please be careful."
>>41249131>B. Ask Arale if she might want to help your guys out a bit
>>41249131>Hug Brobro!Born and dying on the selfsame day
>>41249131>>A. Ask how the match went
Hmmmm....Let's switch to playing as Acer.
>>41249308How about no, There is absolutely no reason to do so
>>41249316He's a Tuffle, and wouldn't it be interesting to see how his mind works after he's so indulgently looked through our brain?
>>41249308I mean we may have to at some points but why now?
>>41249338No plus we're fighting soon
>>41249338You're that one anon who wants maple to fuck acer aren't you? Fuck off already
>>41249361He saw our mind, we should get to see what goes on in his.
>>41249308maybe like as a temporary thing to fill a hole in the story if Maple gets killed and has to spend a year running down snake way/ training at King Kai's
>>41249377Jee you mean like we normally do, Retard
>>41249374What does this have to do with wanting to play as him and see the world through his eyes? Why even include him in the quest if he isn't a PC?
>>41249377Are you the same guy was last time?I told you before that Maple does the same thing.>>41249400Who even are you? Who thinks like this?
>>41249397No, we don't. Ever.
>>41249400Jesus christ man how fucking autistic are you
>>41249417Do you not read? We don't vote for it, Maple does it on her own in the text.
>>41249442Yeah, and we don't get to read his mind, just an impression.
>>41249400>>41249417Oh jee look basically ONE minute apart, Definitely not the same person!
you guys need to calm the fuck down.
>>41249466Dude really? How is it that we know exactly what he is thinking sometimes?We both read each others minds and are fine with it. Get over it.>>41249473No one is disputing that.
>>41249503>How is it that we know exactly what he is thinking sometimes?He's our brobro!
>>41249131"Saaaaay, uh, Arale?" You rub the back of your neck."N'cha!" she greets."Brobro's kind of gotten into a mess here. Would you mind helping us out a bit?" You point at Acer, Goku still trying to chew a piece of the gum off of him, to his increasing frustration. Nam and King Chappa enter the ring themselves."Well sure, I guess, heh heh." she says, giggling at Goku. Arale steps forward, a recovered Giran finally returning."Hah, still stuck in that? It's going to be unbreakable for a week, only a special kind of fluid can weaken its bond. Sorry kid, but you're outta l-""Haaaaaa..." Arale grips the gum. "Ha!" ...and easily tears it apart, freeing Acer and your sword. Giran stares at her in fear, Tien, Tao, and Chiaotzu looking on in shock. She dusts off her hands as the substance seems to dissolve."...your strength never ceases to amaze me, Arale." you breathe out, Acer enjoying his renewed mobility. The robot girl smiles at you. "H-how did the match go, anyway?""It was fun! I managed to get the upper hand in the end and tossed Obotchaman out of the ring." Arale tells you.Well, you could gather that much, you guess. "What, er, were the crowds going 'aww' about, exactly?""We kissed afterwards!" she says rather... bluntly, Obotchaman hiding his blushing face.>A. Aww>B. Eww>C. Try and check on Nam and King Chappa's match>D. Something else?
>>41249605>D. Meh>C. Try and check on Nam and King Chappa's match
>>41249605>>A. Aww>C. Try and check on Nam and King Chappa's match

>>41249605>A. Aww12 year old girl, peeps. Come on. IC it's adorable.>C. Try and check on Nam and King Chappa's match
>>41249605"Aww..." you and Chi-chi say at nearly the same time. Though internally you want to say oww, after the flat of your sword bonked you in the face. Still, that's kinda cute. You skip over to check on the match between King Chappa and Nam."I-incredible! King Chappa seems to be restoring his previous record of completing a Tournament without even being touched! Nam just can't keep up with his amazing speed."Indeed, Nam seems to be giving it his all but King Chappa is making dodging him look easy."A good attempt, my friend, you have gotten far stronger." the afro'd man compliments, then... builds up some ki? "I hope you continue your training." He punches forward, launching a shockwave at Nam that sends him flying out of the ring and crashing into the wall. You notice that, however, that wasn't a single punch, it was almost like four at once."Nam is out of bounds! King Chappa, in a single blow, has taken out Nam! He will move on to the quarterfinals!""That wasn't a single blow." Tien corrects him, the Crane students nodding. "Impressive."The man walks over to help the exhausted Nam up, then brings him to the waiting area. "Just get some rest, that might have taken the wind out of you but you should be fine now.""The last match of the first round will be against returning fighters and Turtle School warriors Son Goku and Krillin!">A. Compliment King Chappa on his win>B. Ask what exactly he's been up to, that looked like a ki attack>C. Stay to watch Goku and Krillin's match, cheer on (write in)>D. Do something else?

>>41250388Nam got married after helping save the village, in here.King Chappa has a wife and 3 kids, given by one of the guidebooks. Said kids were even mentioned in here.Writing...
>>41250333>thinking that Nam and Chappa would cheat on their spousesKato, you are coming down with a case of the lewds.
>>41250464that's not what she was implying anonAlso she admitted she'd written lewds on /u/ a while back, didn't she?
>>41250876Dinner probably. 7pm over on the West Coast.
>>41250876I smell a murder mystery!
>>41250904my money's on Eail
>>41250976Nah Eail couldn't do it, He's to busy sucking off Chuckles
>>41250975Kato has good taste
>>41250976>>41251005I say its Chuckles and Eails. They would need to fuse to beat someone like Kato.
Wonder how Kato feels that we're aiming Maple to be hetero. Like, all the other QMs write lesbian MCs despite having dicks and junk.
>>41251050I thought Maple was going to be a wizard.
>>41251050Are you kidding? She specified that she wants hetero.
>>41251050I wonder how tuffle society handled nonhetero relationsMaybe raichi was super gay for all we know
>>41250876Not dead, just dinner. Salad and a mango smoothie.>>41250508>>41250975Shit. At least you haven't found the ACTUAL lewds.>>41251050Supporting it because I don't want to play backseat driver. Anyway...>>41250051"Congrats on the win, sir." you tell King Chappa. He pats you on the head and smiles. "By the way... that looked like a ki attack. What exactly have you been up to?""Haha, you will see, Maple Mahogany." the man says with a very guilty tone to his voice."Heh, so I will." You see Goku and Krillin tap fists as they enter the ring. "Good luck, guys! Do your best!" Your other friends join in on cheering them as they enter."Well then, let's see what the mysterious monkey boy has to offer." Tien says aloud, floating over to watch the match. You and the rest of the Turtle School go to the other wall, the two other Crane School competitors joining Tien."Fighters ready? BEGIN!"Goku and Krillin dash at each other, unleashing a flurry of strikes at each other. They seem to want to keep this extremely physical, conserving their energy. They aren't even using the Afterimage technique, they're making each strike count while expending as little of their strength as possible. Krillin's strikes seem to be focused on keeping Goku guessing, while Goku's are centered on actually doing damage to his opponent. It's amazing both how well they're doing and how seriously they're taking their match."I've never seen Goku fight so seriously. He's not holding anything back." Yamcha comments.(cont.)
>>41251050Uh dude she wanted Hetero
>>41251115"No, both he and Krillin ARE holding back. They're testing the waters, trying to see how much the other has improved without giving away too much of themselves in the process." Acer comments, eyes focused."Come on Goku! You've got this match!" Launch yells. You can hear Bulma cheering on Goku as well, with Oolong and Puar doing the same. You even spot Eighter among them, but no Suno, curiously."You can do it Krillin! Show him who's boss!" you hear your brother and some other members of the crowd cheering. Most prominently are a boy and a girl, about the same age, black and blonde hair. "You can do it, brutha!" a green fox person adds.You yourself try to cheer the both of them on, paying careful attention to their movements, but you end up noticing you're cheering for Goku even more than Krillin. As the two keep fighting, they're no longer pulling their punches, and the blows hit hard. Finally, Krillin attempts, of all things, Yamcha's Spirit Ball to try and trap Goku, followed by a Kamehameha to strike at him, sending him flying. Goku returns this with a Kamehameha-propelled boost, finally landing a powerful strike to the jaw and sending him out of bounds before he could recover."And the winner is: Son Goku!"Quickly, the monkey boy leaps over and helps Krillin up. The two smile at each other and share a hug, walking back into the waiting area as the crowds cheer them both.>A. Congratulate them>B. Heal them both up, you've rested enough to restore your ki>C. Something else?
>>41251145>>A. Congratulate them
>>41251145>A. Congratulate them Somehow I doubt either of them really need healing
>>41251095Same way any other hyper-advanced society would: they both went to the genetics clinic to get sticked with a needle and have their mouths swabbed, then waited 5 minutes in the lobby for their new baby.
>>41251145>A. Congratulate them>B. Heal them both up, you've rested enough to restore your ki
>>41251145>A. Congratulate them
>>41251198We're raichi's gay babies, canon
>>41251145>B. Heal them both up, you've rested enough to restore your ki
>>41251244Otherwise we're cursed into forbidden love as the the last two remaining tuffles
>>41251288Same-sex relationships are also forbidden love, anon
>>41251288>artificial inseminationor whatever its called, we dont have to do the deed to make more Tuffles.
>>41251288Until we snag the cloning tech from those bio-broly guys and perfect it. We can recreate and super modify every race and even make our own Cell.
>>41251373I think it involves bees and pollen.
Guys, Tuffles are going extinct. Take pride in being the last two Tuffles and leave a mark on the world.
>>41251383>800 Maples to cook Goku's dinner>livin' the dream
>>41251409>Still not enough people to keep up with Goku's eating habits
>>41251444I always preferred this one for dat riffhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z_UdhAFyruk
>>41251490Yeah, that one's pretty good.
>>41251145"You guys were AWESOME!" you say gleefully, wrapping your arms around them both. "Seriously, that was a great match, congrats! On Goku for winning, and on Krillin for getting so far.""Aheh, thanks Maple." Krillin says, sitting down. "You won fair and square, Goku. Can't believe you've gotten so strong. Heh, already taller and stronger than I am.""You keep getting strong too, Krillin!" he returns happily, tail wagging. "Good job, I can't wait for the next time!""You two stay still, Imma heal you both up." you say as you do just that. "And Krillin, don't fret. Chi-chi's the tallest out of us five." The girl smiles at that comment, Acer looking to her and nodding."All righty folks, that's been it for the first round, but we'll be starting the Quarterfinals momentarily!" the blonde Announcer guy says to the still cheering crowd."Guess that means us, Maple." Chi-chi says, looking at you with a mixture of excitement and worry. "Our rematch.""Hah, so it is. I think I know what you're doing after the Tournament this time, though." you tell your friend with a bit of a sly smile. Chi-chi looks back at your brother, then at you."Hey, um... what about you? Are there any things you've got planned? Any..." she blushes a little and plays with her hair bun. "...one, you been thinking on spending some time with?" She seems to tilt her head in the direction of Goku and Krillin.>A. Nah, got other plans!>B. ...oh not you too>C. Maybe...>D. Something else?
>>41251683>A. Nah, got other plans!
>>41251683>>B. ...oh not you too"I haven't been thinking about anything like that yet."
>>41251683>D. Ewww, I don't like Krillin! say nothing else
>>41251683>A. Nah, got other plans!Im gonna become a master magician!
>>41251683>B, "I get enough from brobro."
>>41251683>>B. ...oh not you tooAsk again in a few years.
>>41251683>D. Haven't really thought about it...
>>41251683>B. ...oh not you too
>>41251683>A. Nah, got other plans!Nope we Master of Magic now!
I can only honestly see Goku or Mark if the chemistry is good.
>>41251683>>A. Nah, got other plans!
>>41251683>D. For some reason I've always wanted to try belly-dancing and seeing if I could work it into my spells.
>>41251837Dance magic? David Bowie can be our new master!
Hey Kato how much longer you gonna run for?
>>41251891Either to Tien vs. Yamcha, or maybe to the end of the quarterfinals. Depends on how long I can keep this up.
>>41251683"...oh not you too. I get enough of that from brobro." you say with a bit of a pout, walking with Chi-chi towards the ring. "I haven't really been thinking about that. Really. ...Definitely not interested in Krillin." you feel like that needs to be emphasized."S-sorry. I mean... well, okay." she sighs apologetically. "Just... you know, kind of that age...""Yeah yeah, but really, nah. I've got other plans, other things to do!" You give a gentle jab at your friend's arm.The Announcer guy nods as you both enter. "Well folks, this is it! Not only is it a match between two Turtle School fighters, it's also a rematch between friends! Let's give a big round of applause for these two girls, it's returning Champion Maple Mahogany and Ox Princess, Chi-chi!"You and Chi-chi both bow, then step back and take your stances. "Let's give it our all!""Fighters ready? BEGIN!">A. Go on the offensive! Don't give her room to get any upper hand!>B. Defense, let's see what tricks she's got in store...>C. Energy attack!>D. Something else?Roll depends on choices.
>>41252104>A. Go on the offensive! Don't give her room to get any upper hand!
>>41252104>C. Energy attack!
>>41252104>>C. Energy attack!
>>41252104>C. Energy attack!Spirit bits, and maybe some peptalk about not going easy
>>41252104>>B. Defense, let's see what tricks she's got in store...Start simple, see what she learned.If you have to attack, energy attack, it is what maple is best at.
>>41252166I'd rather not give her the chance to use that cutting Ki attack.
>>41252104ALets also d: read her mind throughout the entire fight in case we can pick up on an impending trick
>>41252191Nah this is a friendly match, We ain't gonna cheat
>>41252104>>41252191Ill support that >DBut my vote for the main bit will be >C
>>41252225It's not cheating in the slightest. It's a technique we learned more or less for fighting. It's not using any tools, or outside influences. It's, by all intents and purposes, fair for the match.
All right folks, 1d20, DC 16.

>>41252367My vote is on telekinesis
>>41252367Phantom shotgun since we are in close range.
>>41252387I'll back, she is likely charging
Q. How come people are calling Kato a girl?Kato said he has a wife.
>>41252104You immediately prep two Spirit Bits and dash at Chi-chi. "No going easy on me, okay?""Only if you promise not to go easy on me!" Chi-chi meets your charge, going for a powerful kick. You manage to dodge and try to counter with a punch, but she catches it and throws a punch of her own. You catch that, then try to chase her off with your Spirit Bits, the girl dodging almost gracefully. Seems Chi-chi's gotten even better at moving quickly, thinking on her feet. When there's only one shot remaining, she takes a stance and charges a Kamehameha. You immediately try to strike her with the last shot, but you realize all too quickly that she'd already left an Afterimage, and was actually moving behind you."You've gotten a lot better, but don't think that's gonna work on me!" You prepare to dodge the attack."Meee... HAAAA!" Chi-chi fires at you and you jump up to avoid it... then notice the attack actually REDIRECTING itself and slamming you in the back, sending you falling back to the ground, your face becoming acquainted with Chi-chi's knee on the way there. She sends you falling with another kick."Looks like it did, Maple." she says with a smile, chasing after you. Damn, that was a good one. Yet you're not down yet. You try to stand, and right as she's on top of you you make a fist and build up ki into it."PHANTOM SHOTGUN!" You fire right at point blank, the barrage of ki now sending her flying upwards. Chi-chi stops herself in mid-air."H-heh... good counter..."You can hear the girl's father cheering for her, while Bulma is cheering for you, quite clearly. Your friends seem split down the middle, Goku cheering excitedly for you both. You stand and dust yourself off.>A. Keep up the offensive! Don't give up!>B. Go to defense, that hurt>C. Another energy attack!>D. Something else?
>>41252740Because Kato is a girl.
>>41252740Cause she is a girl anon, figure it out.You're a smart guy, I believe in you.
>>41252742>A. Keep up the offensive! Don't give up!
>>41252742>>A. Keep up the offensive! Don't give up!Maple Smash!
>>41252742>>D. Something else?She's in the air. Use clothes beam like Spiderman and wrap around her leg with us holding onto the other end, and slam her back down to ground with it.Then>A. Keep up the offensive! Don't give up!
>>41252742C, clothes beam some resistant restraints onto her, then telekinesis her out of the ring.
>>41252742>C. Another energy attack!
>>41252752>>41252759Omg Kato is LESBIANS? On the internet?!No way!
>>41252879Good job anon, you solved the case. And quite tactfully too I might add.

>>41252966...well, there goes making this match any longer than it is. Damn Tuffle Luck.Writing...
>>41253029Well you can always fluff it out to make it seem longer.
I wonder what tao, blue, and the pilaf gang did with their bad man shirts
>>41253071Burned it, is mildly terrified of it, and actually thinks it's a good color on him, respectively.
>>41253085Pilaf's charismatic evil. The thing that was annoying is he should have been one of the worst villians in Dragon Ball, but since he never rated power level wise, he was trash.He should always have loyal minions. Bet he bails blue and Gero out when he gets free too.
>>41253158Charisma is a very powerful tool. As evidence by every diplomancer ever.
>>41253197In Dragonball Goku was the Muscle Diplomancer.
>>41253158Pilaf has always been my favorite Dragonball villain because of that.
>>41252742Well, she won't see this one coming. You CLOTHES BEAM a long piece of cloth tied around her leg, then grab on to it and fling her to the ground. You're right, and as she bounces you unleash a flurry of attacks, striking her with all your might. Chi-chi tries to put up a good defense, but is backed to the edge of the ring. You then attack her with the Ki Jan Ken, knocking her outside it with your three shockwave strikes, and use a bit of telekinesis to make sure she hits the grassy ground below."Chi-chi has landed out of bounds! Maple is the winner of the first match of the Quarterfinals!"Hopping down, you make sure Chi-chi's all right, quickly healing her injuries and helping her up. She hugs you and then gives you a pat on the shoulder, and heads back to the rest of your friends. "Heh... almost dodged that last one, but you were too quick, Maple.""Heh, part of that was just luck." you admit. "It's not exactly an orthodox fighting strategy. Still, a win's a win."Acer quickly approaches you both. "Nice work, sis. And good try, Chi-chi, that bending Kamehameha was brilliant, how'd you do that?""To be honest, Goku actually thought that one up." she says with a smile, nodding at the monkey boy. "I just learned it from him.""Heh, well, no offense Chi-chi, bit I was kinda betting on Maple. Girl's even quicker on her feet than I remember. You did better this time, though. Who knows? Maybe you'll beat her next time. Third time's the charm, as they say." Yamcha tells her, giving you both a pat on the head."Yeah, you did a good job, kid." Launch tells her. "Both of ya' did.""If you all are done with your little sympathy party, I believe Yamcha and I have a match to get to." Tien interrupts, a haughty tone in his voice."Feh, fine, but don't go crying when you lose, Tien!" Yamcha taunts back at him.>A. Wish Yamcha luck and watch the match>B. He's got this, go somewhere else (specify)>C. Something else?Write-in highly encouraged here.
>>41253371>A. Wish Yamcha luck and watch the matchYou got this Newtype!
>>41253371>>A. Wish Yamcha luck and watch the match>Highly encouragedToo much pressure! Hmm..."Tien can take a hit, don't burn all your energy on a final blow unless you are absolutely certain,"
>>41253371>Ask them to try and not break anything of each other's if they can
>>41253371>>C. Something else?Try to spread your senses and sense for unusual power levels like that Tamborine guy.
>>41253371>A. Wish Yamcha luck and watch the match"Break a leg, Yamcha!"
>>41253371"Test your mettle as warrior's and remember that as long as you fight with honor, you both win."
>>41253371>A. Wish Yamcha luck and watch the match>C. Go hang out with the crane school to "socialize". By which i mean keep an eye on them, while trying to seem amicable.
>>41253450They DID try cheating before. Seconding.
>>41253447>>41253450I'll back these.
>>41253371These: >>41253450>>41253447Maybe also ask if Tao and Chiaotzu are healing well.
>>41253447No idea why I 's the warrior. My inner grammar nazi is quite pissed.
>>41253450Remember the Crane school are all telepaths and now they know you are, too. Keeping an eye on them won't be so simple.Plus it would be rather disingenuous of Maple to spout all that stuff about honor and sportsmanship, then try to spy on her competition (and potentially ruin the budding relationship between the schools)
>>41253537Too bad we can't work to just create like...an anti-telepathic field or something. Something that just bounces their minds back or something.
>>41253537Dude has a good point. Just let Tien and Yamcha fight.
>>41253574Perspicuity would be the word that describes exactly that.
>>41253537Thats cool, but maple probably cares more for making sure yamcha isnt seriously hurt or cheated against. Making sure they aren't pulling tricks isnt so much spying.I say we do it. Plus, socializing with them could easily end up making them a bit more amiable towards us.
>>41253631No one can resist Maple's charm! It'll beat you down harder than a spirit bomb!
>>41253696MAPLE SM-er.....MAPLE CHARM!
>>41253707>It's super effective!>The Crane School is in love with Maple!
>>41253734Charm doesn't cause love, it just harshly lowers attack.
>>41253862Cute Charm is the one that causes infatuate I know.
>>41253882And that isn't a move, it's an ability. So it can't be Super Effective. You have failed your Pokénerd test. You lose, you get nothing, good day to you sir.
>>41253371"A wise person once said, 'test your mettle as warriors and remember that as long as you fight with honor, you both win.'" you say to both fighters. Yamcha nods, and Tien... seems to WANT to nod, but won't. "Yamcha, do your best. And you too, Tien.""I will.""You can do this, Yamcha!" Goku tells him. The two even tap fists."Heh, seems like so long ago I was just some young bandit punk, then you and Bulma came along. Thanks for helping me change my path, Goku." Yamcha says nostalgically. He then looks to you and your brother. "And you two, for helping train me, helping me get stronger. I'll never forget that."Tien looks at your friend funny, almost like he's lost in thought, caught between two modes of thinking. He then shrugs and starts walking off. "You better not disappoint me, Yamcha. I am a warrior who seeks a proper challenge."You and Acer smile at your friend. "Good luck, Amuro."As they walk off, Launch seems somewhat conflicted herself. "Hope those two can start seeing eye to eye.""Tien will not see eye to eye with him. Tien has the heart of a killer, a warrior who needs his blade heavy with blood." Tao comments, taking his place on one side of the wall, Chiaotzu follows, but he also seems more conflicted. You follow the three of them, Launch behind you."I want to trust you two on there being no funny business in this match. This is for Yamcha's sake, and Tien's." you say while making it clear in no uncertain terms that if they do, you're going to deal with them about it. "Please..." You also try to keep an eye out for any unusual Power Levels, like Tambourine's."Rest assured, girl, I will do no such thing. I know Tien's capabilities." Tao declares.Chiaotzu stares awkwardly and mumbles, "I... want Tien to win, but he is... my friend...""Fighters ready? BEGIN!"(cont.)
>>41253990Neither combatant makes a move for a moment, both seemingly playing out what the other will do in their heads. Then Yamcha backs up, Tien leaping at him and attacking fiercely. While your friend keeps up a good guard, it's soon clear that the triclops' strength is superior to Yamcha's, and his speed is even greater. Still, Yamcha pulls out everything he has, giving a powerful counterattack. First blow of Yamcha's that connects is a right hook to Tien's jaw, with Tien doing the same. And apparently the three-eyed man takes it with greater surprise than Yamcha does."T-Tien...""He will win." Tao reassures.Yamcha tries to make his attacks connect on Tien's chest, going for the most amount of damage he can inflict. A powerful knee to the Triclops' gut sends him stumbling in pain, but not for long, as Tien instead focuses his own attacks on Yamcha's limbs, targeting his joints especially. After half a minute of back and fourth, Tien again brings out his Four Witches technique, but Yamcha takes it as a cue to gain distance, and launches a Spirit Ball at his opponent, using it to strike at Tien when the man gets in close and then attacking with his legs as his arms are kept busy with the Spirit Ball."Y-Yamcha..." you know you hear Bulma mutter. You see her among the crowds, looking intently at her boyfriend.(cont.)
>>41254007"H-heh heh... hehahahaha! Good, Yamcha, good! Keep this up!" Tien takes to the air, Yamcha following... only to be knocked back down. You can see Tien charging up a Dodonpa, and he fires... only for Yamcha to get out of the way at the last second, quickly jumping back up and connecting with the Wolf Fang Fist.The two hover, catching their breaths. "Y-you're just full of surprises, aren't you? W-well... I'm not out yet...""Indeed you aren't." Tien seems to look at his opponent with an... almost gleeful bloodlust, and places his hands together. Then you hear something that shocks you. Something from the Crane Hermit."Tien no! It's not worth using that technique against him! Hold off on it!"Tao and Chiaotzu seem equally disturbed.>A. Ask them what Tien is doing>B. Try to warn Yamcha>C. Something else?
>>41254047>A. Ask them what Tien is doingYelling to yamcha will distract him. He has danger sense, i think, so let him feel it.
>>41254047>>A. Ask them what Tien is doing
>>41254047>A. Ask them what Tien is doing
>>41254047>C. Read Tien's mind to get a grasp on this techniqueKikoho muthahuggers. Maple needs it like a Saiyan needs food.
>>41254128That would be interfering with the match you dumbfuck!
>>41254047>A, if they explain what it is, yell at Tien that killing himself to win isn't worth it
>>41254128Lets not, yeah, interfering with the match.
>>41254128Nah.Getting skills is good, but don't start acting like its part of the character to do so at every opportunity.
>>41254047>C. Remain silent and observe.
>>41254047>A. Ask them what Tien is doing"Is he trying to do Advanced Geometry or something?"
>>41254047"W-what is he doing?" you ask, worried."Th-the Kikoho technique... the Tri-Beam..." Chiaotzu stutters."Th-the fool! TIEN I TAUGHT YOU BETTER THAN THIS, THE TECHNIQUE WILL DRAIN YOUR LIFE FORCE IF YOU AREN'T CAREFUL!" Tao roars at the triclops man....that isn't good. "Tien, don't! What about your pride as a warrior?!""I HAVE MY RESOLVE! BUTT OUT OF THIS!" Tien roars back at all of you. You can sense a terrifying amount of ki building up around him. "You better dodge this, Yamcha, or else you won't live!"That's when it hits you all. Yamcha isn't below Tien anymore. Yamcha is ABOVE Tien. "NEO! WOLF! FANG! FIST!" The flurry of ferocious blows ram into the three-eyed man's back. Tien hits the ground with an audible thud, Yamcha falling to his knees. "D-don't you dare try something so stupid... y-you're a better fighter than this..."Tien stands, struggling for a moment. "What do you know?! Y-you... you're on your last breath... don't think I didn't notice how much energy you have left!" In rage, Tien lunges at Yamcha and kicks him in the arm... breaking it. The crowds gasp in shock, and you can hear Bulma almost faint before Puar catches her. Tien then places his hands to his face. "SOLAR FLARE!"With only a moment to spare, you quickly Clothes Beam a pair of sunglasses onto yourself, Acer getting the pair he got as a present out, as a brilliant, blinding light fills the entire arena. Few people can still see. The Crane Hermit looks at his student in shock. "W-what's he trying to pull?!"(cont.)
>>41254465Tien again takes to the air, though this time he doesn't try the same technique. You notice ki building up at his third eye. "You will FALL!"https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9mHxtsnKeJ4Yamcha is, in spite of the broken arm, in spite of the painful, blinding light, he's still willing to fight. "L-like hell... I... will..." He places his arm upwards, ki building up in his palm. "Ha... HOWLING RIFLE!""YOU FOOL!" Tien fires the beam from his eye. Yamcha, with every last bit of energy left, fires back at Tien. Tien's beam strikes Yamcha across the side, damaging the side of his body and his arm and leg... but Yamcha's attack hits true. It strikes his opponent right in the face. Tien goes down, dropping like a rock... and out of the ring."L-ladies and gentlemen... in spite of the match looking to turn in his favor, T-Tien Shinhan is out of bounds! YAMCHA IS THE WINNER!"Your friend immediately collapses from his injuries. You can see Bulma nearly leap over the wall with Puar flying over as well.>A. Hurry to Yamcha too, he seems like he's in bad shape>B. Get to Tien, see if he needs assistance>C. Something else?
>>41254482>>A. Hurry to Yamcha too, he seems like he's in bad shapeProbably the most iconic Gundam scene.
>>41254482>A. Hurry to Yamcha too, he seems like he's in bad shape
>>41254482>>A. Hurry to Yamcha too, he seems like he's in bad shape
>>41254482A, and give Chaiotzu a Senzu Bean for Tien, and tell him what it is for.
>>41254482Thinking quickly, you toss a Senzu to Chiaotzu. "Get this to Tien. It'll restore him to full health."Tao glares at you. "W-we don't need your sympath-" but before he can finish, the boy has already flown over. You yourself rush to Yamcha."H-hey... Bulma... Puar... M-Maple... h-heh..." he coughs, bleeding on the tiles a bit. You and Bulma look at each other and nod, then at Puar, who transforms himself into a stretcher. Very carefully, the two of you help Yamcha onto it, and then into the waiting area."All right, Yamcha, this is going to hurt a bit..." you tell him. "But the pain's going to be over soon. Just hold tight." You carefully make sure his arm is set properly, the young man giving out a shout, but then you quickly heal it, and swiftly work to heal the rest of his body. After that's done, you Clothes Beam away the heavily damaged uniform and replace it with a new one. "Th-there..." you wipe some sweat from your brow. Glad you don't have another match until tomorrow."Th-thanks, kid..." Yamcha says weakly. In spite of his injuries being healed he's still clearly exhausted. Bulma clings to him, saying over and over "I'm sorry" to him. Then comes Tien."...you fought well, Yamcha. You have bested me. And... the Turtle School has bested the Crane School." The triclops, Tao, Chiaotzu, and Shen all give an uneasy look at your group."I believe it's time we finally have a proper talk, old friend." you hear Master Roshi say to the other old man.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jSTdqvea_K8>YOU HAVE COMPLETED THE FOURTH SOCIAL LINK WITH YAMCHA>DRAGON BALL TUFFLE QUEST #23 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 canSo, that's all for this thread! I'll be here like usual. Did ya'll have fun tonight?
>>41254706Thanks for the run Kato, fun as always. I for sure thought Tien was going to win.
>no social link with ChaiotzuDamn, thought us giving the Senzu for Tien would have done it
>>41254706Thanks for running Kato, That was probably the best match in the thread and we were';t even in it. Also, gotta say, I love these tournament arcs.
>>41254733>>41254769Thanks for playing! To be completely honest I really wasn't sure who would win the match myself, I'd been kind of thinking on it the entire night. In the end, seemed like this would be the best way to go about it, given everything you guys have kind of gotten Yamcha through.Plus I couldn't help but put that little bit in at the end of the fight. Just fit too well. Also hey, first time someone has successfully used the Solar Flare.>>41254754In time, anon. Honestly he's probably the one among the Crane School that likes you the most, so far. Tien... more respects you than he likes you, but he'll probably, eventually turn around too. Tao and Shen have a lot of reconsidering to do.
With all the healing we've been doing, we've pretty much become the designated team healer. Good news is that even if we fall behind in power, we're still going to be pretty useful throughout the entire series since Senzu are in limited supply.Bad news is that we'll probably be targeted first, so there's a good chance we'll die a few times.
>>41254878Whats Lightning Flash Surprise again?Just a standard lightning bolt?
>Yamcha winning a fightThis is a sign. Anything is possible if we can make Yamcha useful in a fight.
>>41254967Well, we're also going to make him lose the next one since he's up against us.The only way he can win is if we blow ourselves up by rolling multiple 1's.
>>41254953Please try to avoid that. Also you're more Red Mage-ish than overall healer, so far. Trip, if/when she gets added to the party, would better fit the support role that a team healer would need to fit.>>41254960Master Roshi's technique, what he used against Goku in the 21st WMAT.
