>This is a quest taking place in an alternate version of the Naruto world during the same time period as the story, with a few notable differences. You will be playing as a Leaf Genin fresh off the heels of the graduation exam. Your character will be defined by your choices, so write-ins are always encouraged. And remember to have fun!
>>42057748i vote to become a lesbian
You take a seat at your desk after finishing your turn at testing. Just about all of your classmates are finished as well, sitting at their desks anxious to recieve the results. You look over at the other end of the room. Two trainees in particular look antsier than most. Rock Lee, a boy with a bowl cut and ponytail is bouncing nervously in his seat, while next to him Tenten, a girl with her hair in two buns, grumbles at him."This whole thing is a waste of time. I should have passed last year, but the Hokage had to come and personally be a hardass. I mean really, only passing the valedictorian? I was robbed! I'm not like you Lee, I actually should have passed!""Hey!" Lee objects. "I have been studying very hard in order to make up for my weak points by scoring well on the written exam! You cannot just dimiss my effort!"Back at the front of the class, you see that the last student is up. A boy by the name of Sai. Most of the time he acts like a robot, his voice eternally monotone, spending a good portion of his time sketching in his notebook. He does have one strange point in particular though..."Alright, that's a satisfactory Substitution Jutsu, Sai." The teacher, Iruka Sensei says as Sai finishes his final test. "Ideally, you'd want the illusion of your body to stick around as long as possible before the log is revealed, so practice that when you have time.""Thanks for the tip, Sensei." Sai replies as he pulls out a notebook. "Let me just /log/ your critique in my journal."The whole classroom goes silent for a moment before reacting to his pun.>A.Groan>B.Sensible chuckle>C.Lose sides
>>42057777>>B.Sensible chuckleVery punny Sai
>>42057777B. Sensible chuckle
Rolled 4 (1d100)>>42057777>>C.Lose sides
>>42057777>B.Sensible chuckleOh, Sai. How I love you. The plot really just forgot about you towards the end, and that's sad.
We don't even know our name at this point. Or anything else about us.
>>42058043We look like this.
>>42057804>>42057830>>42057984>>42058008After a moment of silence, Iruka Sensei and Lee bust out in uncontrollable laughter. You however, just let out a slight chuckle, amused. Joining you is Kiba, a rough boy with a fur-lined hood. The entire rest of the class groans collectively at Sai's pun."Hoo..." Iruka Sensei exhales deeply. "You always crack me up with your jokes, Sai."Sai returns to his seat, face as stoic as ever despite just telling a joke."Well then." Iruka sensei addresses the class. "That's everybody. Mizuki here will be passing out the results as they are graded, so just sit tight."Iruka Sensei goes to finish grading the tests and before long, Mizuki takes them and starts passing them out. He starts on your side of the room, coming up to Sakura, a girl with long pink hair, first."Nice job Sakura, you did great." Mizuki praises her as her hands her the test results.He approaches you next."Here you go, uhh..." Mizuki stumbles. "I'm really sorry I must have a bad memory, what was your name again?">Write-inI'll give you guys a while to come to a concensus. Try to keep it Japanese though, don't want to clash with the setting too much.
>>42058129>RyūtarōClan name to be determined
>>42058129So, we female or male, guys?Personally I vote for female.
>>42058129Kon.Simple and hard to forget.
>>42058205Yeah, Kon sounds good.
>>42058043It's not that we don't know. We are helping to define it.
>>42058129Saikou. It means Ultimate. Sounds like psycho.
>>42058192female. lesbian. It's important...
>>42058192Definitely male. Yuri is shit.
>>42058192As long as you're naming him after this guy, I'm cool with it.
>>42058129"It's me, sensei, Kon. You've seen me every day for the past year. Am I that unmemorable?"
>>42058286It completely slipped my mind that we've been in his class that long. What a dick.
Okay, so it looks like you're a boy named Kon. Any ideas for a last name?
>>42058344I'm gonna throw my weight behind this one.
>>42058317Ichikawa, after director Kon Ichikawa.

>>42058469pretty damn goodOR pretty damn shitethat reminds meis this system going to work higher is better? or lower is better?
>>42058344"Mizuki Sensei it's me, Kon Karagowa." you answer. "Am I really that unmemorable?""Uhh... Maybe? Sorry, sorry." Mizuki quickly apologizes. "I've only been a teaching aide for a couple of months, and I've had more paperwork than student interaction. Anyway, here's your test results."He hands you your test packet, then moves on to the rest of the students.You open your packet to look at your test results.>This quest will be using the same ability scoring system as the official databook, divided into eight categories. These scores will determine how successful you will be at certain endeavors, but can be increased with training.>You will determine your ability scores now>Roll 1d6>Once we have eight values, they will be used to determine your ability scores>You will have some control over what goes where, so don't panic too much
Rolled 4 (1d6)>>42058561welp time for shit all the way
Rolled 3 (1d6)>>42058561Okay, that's a neat way of doing it. Here's hoping we don't wind up E-Rank in everything.
Rolled 2 (1d6)>>42058561let's do this
Rolled 3 (1d6)>>42058561
Rolled 2 (1d6)>>42058561
Rolled 6 (1d6)>>42058561Okaaaaaay!

Rolled 5 (1d6)>>42058561Daddy needs a 6
So we're pretty average I say that 6 goes into Chakra control or stamina
>>42058623Nah, we should put it into Taijutsu.
>>42058561since this in unlinked>>42058600can we get this instead?>>42058619
>>42058623Genjutsu or Taijutsu
>>42058649Nah Tai gets that 4 Captcha you fucking asshole
>>42058678Eh, the other Naruto quest is doing Genjutsu.Let's focus on Taijutsu.>>42058694Fair 'nuff.
>>42058678>>42058649>>42058623>>42058694>>42058708How about we all just fucking wait until the QM auto decides all our stats according to the thing he's running off?
>>42058572>>42058576>>42058578>>42058579>>42058581>>42058593>>42058600>>42058602If you keep the scores as they are, your stats are:Ninjutsu 2.0Taijutsu 1.5Genjutsu 1.0Intelligence 1.5Strength 1.0Speed 3.0Stamina 1.5Hand seals 0.5If you can all reach a consensus, you can switch they places of the 3.0 and the 0.5 only with any other scores.
Y'know what we should do? Train ourself to take insane amounts of punishment and just not. Stay. Down. Just an utterly insane pain tolerance and stubbornness. You cut off our arm, we'll pick it up and beat you with it, that kinda thing.
>>42058723ok we gotta swap hand seals out maybe for Genjustsu?
>>42058723If we have low handseals, our ninjutsu score is basically useless.
>>42058723That's actually pretty good. Wouldn't change anything.
>>42058723Seems good enough to me as is
>>42058723I'd like to swap Hand Seals for Genjutsu. Those are pretty essential for everything, but Genjutsu isn't.
>>42058748Okay, so we swap the Hand Seals with Genjutsu and the Speed with Stamina.
>>42058750>>42058723The way I'm reading that is we can swap gen with seals right?
>>42058787i'll back that
>>42058755>>42058757Shitty handseals mean our nin score and gen score are fucked. hand seals are uber important if you don't have a cheating gan>>42058787That'd be a good idea.
>>42058776>Speed with StaminaNah
>>42058723Perhaps switch hand seals with Genjitsu. Hand seals are kinda important with our apparent Ninjitsu skill.
>>42058776Speed kills in the ninja world. a high speed is actually good.
>>42058748>>42058776As much as my inner 12 year old wants us to be Ninja Mick Foley (I know he put MY butt in that seat), speed is just plain BETTER than Stamina.
So, all in support, say ayekeep everything the same, but swap Genjutsu with Hand seals
>>42058826Okay, soNinjutsu 2.0Taijutsu 1.5Genjutsu 0.5Intelligence 1.5Strength 1.0Speed 3.0Stamina 1.5Hand seals 1.0Also looking at it, your total score is pretty low, at 12. Naruto the failure had 14 at this time in canon, So I'll give you guys 2.0 worth of bonus points that you can divvy up however you want, as long as no score exceeds 4.0
>>420589171 in ninjutsu, 1 in hand seals
>>42058917I say we bump Hand Seals up another full point, and raise both Intelligence and Stamina to 2.0.
>>42058917put a full point in speed and buff int and tai by a half.
>>42058917Give Taijutsu a full point, and split up the other between strength and stamina.
>>42058917In that case.Bump up strength by 1, Taijutsu by 0.5 and Ninjutsu by 0.5
>>42058917I say we add one whole point to Speed and the other to Stamina.
>>42058917Tai .5Int .5Stamina 1
>>420589173 taijutsu, 2 stamina. That's the best option for our already high speed
>>42058917Ninjitsu +.5Intelligence +.5Hand seals +1
>tfw no one wants to start at a 4.0 speed.
Well this is getting us nowhere.The most common single one i've seen is taijutsu, so let's spend this in chunks.Who votes yes for putting stuff in taijutsu, and if so, how much?
The most common votes were for>Stamina>TaijutsuIs 1.0 for each alright?
>>42058917speed +1Stamina +1
>>42059087.5 TAi+1 speed.5 stamina
>>42059074IntStrStaTaiThose 4 need a boost
>>42059087Works fine for me.
>>42059087Sta 1Tai .5Str .5
>>42059087Sounds good>>42059075Ino and Sakura are shit waifus. Any others I'm on board with
>>42059120Sai shouldn't even be here so technically you can't call that
>>42059146>Any others I'm on board withAll the girls our age are either shit or have a single target sexuality.But that's okay, because older women are better anyway. More mature. More... experienced.
the QM seems to be living up to his name.
>>42059227I am 100% for this.
>>42059227not the assistant.Literally so many underutilised characters in this series.
>>42059227>>42059282You two realize she's literally old enough to be our grandmum, right?
>>42059333Well yeah.Your point?
>>42059333They're reverse pedos anon
>>42059333Only if both she and her kid had children at a young age. She's only in her early fifties. Not saying that as a justification for trying to waifu her, more just that I know she'd be very upset if we didn't make that distinction.
>>42059108>>42059121>>42059146You look down at your score card:Ninjutsu 2.0Taijutsu 2.5Genjutsu 0.5Intelligence 1.5Strength 1.0Speed 3.0Stamina 2.5Hand seals 1.0You're pretty average across the field, if a bit fast. Excluding your terrible Genjutsu score. You still passed, so that's what matters.Soon, everyone has received their test results."Well." Iruka Sensei addresses the class again. "I'm proud to say we have a 100% pass rate, good job everyone. Just wait a bit here, and we'll be back with the team assignments."Iruka and Mizuki leave the room, leaving the class by themselves. Looking around, almost everyone is anxious about their team assignments, except one group.Shikamaru, a lazy young man with his hair up, Choji, a rather rotund young man, and Ino, a girl with long blond hair, are all sitting together. You get the feeling from looking at them that they seem somehow... resigned to their fate.Sasuke Uchiha, a prodigal young man from the prestigious Uchiha clan glances over Shika maru's shoulder at his test results."Really?" Sasuke scoffs. "There is no reason you shouldn't have scored higher than me on the written portion. Sandbagging like this is only going to cost lives in the field."He glares down it Shikamaru. The lazy young man struggles to bother responding."I don't need to hear it form you, mister prodigy." Shikamaru replies. "Why would I bother working my ass off when ninjas like you and your brother, A.K.A., 'The greatest ninja ever' go out of your way to do everything yourselves?"You feel some tension between the two.>A. Agree with Sasuke, scold Shikamaru>B.Tell Sasuke to lighten up and leave Shikamaru alone>C.Write-in
>>42059387>A. Agree with Sasuke, scold ShikamaruShikamaru is an absolute prick.
>>42059387>A. Agree with Sasuke, scold Shikamaru
>>42059387>B.Tell Sasuke to lighten up and leave Shikamaru alonethere is a bit of a difference between sandbagging on a test and sandbagging on the field, hopefully shikamaru knows that
>>42059387>"Guys. We're all integral parts of Konoha. From the Uchihas to the Uzamakis. We're all connected. So stop acting like twats to one another.'
>>42059387>C.Write-inMediate both have said a point
>>42059387>>"Guys. We're all integral parts of Konoha. From the Uchihas to the Uzamakis. We're all connected. So stop acting like twats to one another.'
>>42059387>C.Write-inTell Sasuke he's right, but it's not worth getting in an argument over. It's just test scores, he'll get serious when it's his life on the line.
>>42059333"Miss Tsunade, you didn't... I mean, you didn't expect...""What?""I mean, you didn't really think I'd do something like that.""Like what?""What do you think?""Well I don't know.""For god's sake, Miss Tsunade. Here we are. You got me into your house. You give me a drink. You... put on music. Now you start opening up your personal life to me and tell me how lonely you get sometimes.""So?""Miss Tsunade, you're trying to seduce me."
>>42059324>Literally so many underutilised charactersWell yeah, near the end anyone that wasn't competing for Naruto's penis got pushed into the background.
>>42059443>>C.Write-in>Tell Sasuke he's right, but it's not worth getting in an argument over. It's just test scores, he'll get serious when it's his life on the line.this
>>42059387>C.Write-inTime for peacekeeping, interupt the tension by asking about teams.
>>42059387Agree with Sasuke's core point (after all, Shikamaru DOES narrowly avoid getting his team killed later on, resulting in him actually starting to get a little bit of motivation), but point out that there's no need to be a prick about it.
>>42059457Who is that fluid druid?
>>42059428>>42059429>>42059437>>42059443>>42059444>>42059467You approach the two young men, making an attempt at mediation."Guys. We're all integral parts of Konoha. From the Uchihas to the Naras. We're all connected. So stop acting like twats to one another. You're right Sasuke, but it's not worth getting in an argument over. Besides, it's just test scores. I'm sure Shikamaru will get serious when his life is on the life, right?"Your attempt at mediation seems at least moderately successful, as they both give a noncommittal grunt and go their separate ways.After a bit longer, Iruka Sensei returns to the classroom."Alright everybody." Iruka announces. "Here is the moment you've all been waiting for: the team assignments!"He begins to read off the teams.>Your team mates in this quest will be decided separately, one via vote, and one via roll>In your reply, both cast your vote and roll 1d8>The character with the most votes will be chosen as your teammate, and from your rolls, I'll use my table to determine your other teammateYour options for teammates are:SaiSakuraLeeTentenHinataSasukeKibaShino

Rolled 4 (1d8)>>42059625Kiba
>>42059742Tenten shouldn't be here, either. It's an alternate universe, I guess they're all in the same class. No Neji, though, I wonder what happened to him?
>>42059708Nope. My phone's gay like that.
>>42059708It really depends on what app you are using.
>>42059768Well since Lee has been pushed back that actually might make him the weakest out of this group. He sucked completely as a ninja until his major training with Gai.
>>42059833I use whatever internet browser came with my Galaxy S4 Active.

>>42059945Kiba for best bro.
>>42059945>KibaI gotta rock with dogbro
>>42059945>HinataMight as well. I'd rather have Byakugan to Inuzuka clan skills.
>>42059945>KibaHis bro status is maximum.
Can we call the damn vote already?
C'mon, think of all the wingmanning Kiba could do for us with his dog! Like stalking and gathering information! Besides, Hinata is a waifu among a sea of waifus. We don't HAVE to pick our best girl so soon!
>>42060067Don't want to wait so that both sides can samefag some more?
>>42059945>You don't know anyone by that nameSo they're doing that insanely stupid thing of actively demonizing or isolating the son of one of their war heroes again?
>>42060103Nah, Hinata is not a waifu, there is like 0% chance we can compete against Naruto in this case. However, Hinata does have a really nice ability to add to the team, although Kiba might actually be the better fighter here.
>>42059945Kiba. If we are a peacekeeper, obviously we need a fiery second!
Why is there no love for Shino?
>>42060143Kiba's cool, he has dogs.
Calling it at Kiba
>>42060111>>42060117>>42060148>>42060167You can all stop samefaging here.
>>42060165I don't know either anon
>>42060183How is >>42060167 samefagging?
>>42060203My mistake, thought that was a vote.
>>42060165I actually do like shino. But there's no way we would be able to sway everyone to our side
>>42060165Shino is cool and all, but, well...dogs>bugs
>>42060226Maybe we can hope that the dice gods decided to grace us with his presence. Little do people know, but Shino is actually the strongest character in the whole Naruto universe, however he takes the backseat because it wouldn't be much of a story if Shino facerolled everyone.
>>42060177Iruka reads off the team assignments."... Team 6 is Rock Lee, Sakura Haruno, and Sai, under Gai Sensei.""NOOOOOOO!" Sakura screams, as she bolts up from her seat. "Why do I have to be with both the weirdos? I wanted to be on the same team as Sasuke! This is the worst thing that could happen!"Leaving Sakura to her hysterics, Iruka continues."Team 7 is Kiba Inuzuka, Kon Karagowa, and Sasuke Uchiha, under Kakashi Sensei.">A.React? (Write-in)>B.Stay silent
>>42060308meh.This is actually a good team, assuming we don't become cpt. jobber
>>42060320All of my yes.
>>42060308Huh Two skills team mates, now I just gotta convince Kakashi the never pass master not to fail us.
>>42060308>A.React? (Write-in)Give a thumbs up. This should be a good team, we're happy to be part of it. It's just that we're a subdued sort of happy. That's the impression I've been forming of our character, anyway.
>>42060320A hippie motif could be interesting.
>>42060308>B.Stay silentSo, how do we prevent Sasuke from turning into a winged lipstick monster?
>>42060374Seems like a good answer
>>42060320Groovy as shit man. Seconding this.
>>42060308Be the weird guy and say "I got your backs!" or something like that. Be cheesy.
>>42060389I dunno. Become the monster?
>>42060320DiscoNinja?We should get an afro
>>42060308>B.Stay silent>Sensei is Kakashi Not sure how to feel
>>42060358More like you need to convince him to teach us something at alBeyond friendship and teamwork of course >>42060308A.React? (Write-in)Just a nod at them both will do
>>42060381But we already decided NOT to be Mick Foley! It's too late for us to be Dude Love now!
>>42060413Not that far, but something like JJBA's Wham's thing with discs on his hair could be cool.
>>42060320Backing both this response and this theme
>>42060389Well, the mention of Itachi before kind of suggests that in this timeline the Uchiha Massacre had a different resolution, if it ever happened at all. He appears to still be a loyal Konoha ninja from how Shikamaru referred to him. So presumably the amount of genjutsu-inflicted psychological trauma Sasuke has will be much lower in this universe.
>>42060389Essentially we never become stronger then him. Then he won't have the massive envy that he had with Naruto. Also never become friends with him and ensure he never makes any friends.
>>42060308>sasuke in our teamaand dropped
>>42060308A. Lunch times with Kiba was a riot! Glance over at Kiba to see if he's visibly as excited>>42060325
>>42060389>Meta Down boy heel
Wait a minute, Sai is a normal ninja in this class now?
>Disco hipie theme
>>42060473Yep. Different universe, what with Lee and Tenten held back too.
>>42060456[scary freelancer noises]
>>42060496I think Neji was also held back too, it just wasn't mentioned becuase he was one of the random ninjas we could be teamed with like Sausake or Sai.
>>42060487The first most important hand signal of our ninja way!
>>42060451>never become friends with him and ensure he never makes any friends.>not forcing the power of friendship down his throat>not hooking him up with Ino because he desperately needs to get laid and she probably puts out
>>42060525I think it was said only the valedictorian was passes by the hokage last time, indicating that only Neji advanced.
>>42060320"Groovy." You smirk, satisfied that you got a good team. Kiba and Sasuke are both pretty skilled.Kiba gives you a thumbs-up, while Sasuke just eyes you both. He doesn't look visibly disappointed, at least."Team 8 is Hinata Hyuuga, Shino Aburame, and Tenten, under Kurenai Sensei" Iruka continues."...and finally, Team 10 is Shikamaru Nara, Ino Yamanaka, and Choji Akimichi, under Asuma Sensei. Everyone come get these sheets up here, they'll tell you where and when your teams will meet."Everyone comes up and takes the sheets. Kakashi Sensei wants to meet you in this classroom tomorrow at 0700.Iruka dismisses everyone, and they begin to leave. You see Iruka go over to Sai."Nice job today, Sai." he says with a beaming smile. "Let's go to Ichiraku's to celebrate."One by one, the classroom empties.>A.Go straight home>B.Go catch up to somebody(who?)>C. Go shopping>D.Other
Remember, this is the path we chose.
>>42060621>C. Go shopping
>>42060628Can we have a scene where we get rightfully beaten by a cop because drugs?
>>42060621>"Nice job today, Sai." he says with a beaming smile. "Let's go to Ichiraku's to celebrate."Okay you're fucking with me now >B.Go catch up to somebody(who?)Our team>>42060628No.
>>42060621>A. Go straight home.Nothing to see here ~
>>42060621>>C. Go shopping
>>42060621>"Nice job today, Sai." he says with a beaming smile. "Let's go to Ichiraku's to celebrate."What universe is this? Becuase this is clearly not anything close to resembling the Naruto universe.
>>42060389Can we just try as hard as we can to kill him when and if this arc starts? It would spare us a lot of bullshit.
Are we a boy or a girl?
>>42060621>A.Go straight homeGet all our gear in order, we shall be ready for anything Kakashi throws at us.
>>42060621>>C. Go shoppingGotta make a celebratory feast.>>42060662Male.
>>42060621>>B.Go catch up to somebody(who?)Kiba and Sasuke>>42060662Boy.
>>42060628No.>>42060662Boy, Go and read the thread before you respond.
>>42060658This is a different timeline. Itachi doesn't even appear to be a traitor here, Sasuke probably doesn't have the issues he does in canon.
>>42060682Oh raspberries, I suggested that whole hippie thing with the impression that we were a lesbian. Oh well, you live, you learn.
>>42060621>C. Go shoppingI wanna see what is offered.
>>42060648well... that has implictions. the first two options that come to mind are that either Sai is now the Jinchurikki or Danzo has an emotionally dead Naruto under his thumb, possibly both
>>42057748Time to do stereo typical ninja in the Naruto world!What fun. All stealth, all the time.
>>42060696I'm sure if we give him some time and a little rope to hang himself with that shitter will give us plenty of reasons to kill him anyways. My bet is this time around his issue is that everyone comparing him to his brother has given him a huge complex and a need to obtain power at any cost.
Make sure we stock up on Kunai, Explosive Tags, Wire Strings and Flash bombs.
>>42060642>>42060650>>42060659>>42060672>>42060720You leave everyone to their devices, while you head towards the market district.Your Uncle was already going to prepare a big celebratory dinner, so you don't need groceries. What you're looking for is ninja tools. You have a pretty good supply of ryo, so you want to stock up. You're officially a Genin tomorrow, so you want to be ready.You head into the weapon shop, looking at the wares. They've got every basic tool you can imagine, from shuriken to kunai to explosive tags and wires."Really, Mom? I have to work the store today of all days?" you hear from the back. "Fine, fine, geez."You see Tenten come up behind the counter."Huh? Kon? You looking for something?" she asks.>A.You want to buy: (what?)>B.Talk to her(Write-in)
>>42060849>>A.You want to buy: (what?)We should probably buy, like, a legit primary weapon, instead of just using dumbass kunai or some shit.Like a Wakizashi, probably.
>>42060849>Kunai Explosive Tags Wire Strings and Flash Bombs.
>>42060849>A.You want to buy: (what?)Sword or the closet thing we can get to thatDeath by a thousand cuts
>>42060849>B. Hey good-lookin', whatcha got cookin'?>A. Oh hey, these are actually all things I'm looking to buy, could you maybe stop throwing them at such dangerous areas, pleasssse?
>>42060883give me your explosives, all of them
>>42060849>B.Talk to her(Write-in)"Just looking to stock up before we officially start tomorrow. You got any recommendations?"
>>42060849A small date with you? But seriously a small sword?
>>42060877>>42060885I say we get a Kama then.
>>42060849All the explosives, and enough wire to make a barbwire fence jealous.
>>42060849>B.Talk to her(Write-in)Came looking for supplies. Want to be as ready as possible, you know?Perhaps ask her what she thinks we might need.
>>42060849Kunai, paper bombs, some wire strings
>>42060849>>42060903Scythes make shitty weapons, anon.I'd rather go with what >>42060877>>42060885 and >>42060901 suggested. Maybe instead of a wakizashi we could get a huge ass like Odachi or some shit, idk.
>>42060849>B.Talk to her(Write-in)Ask what she recommends.
>>42060909Second, WE TRAP MASTER!
>>42060937We don't have enough STR for that anon, We're a speed character.
>>42060752This literally kills anon
>>42060909>>42060945Yes Trap master, we are fast and can take a hit. We will lead our foes to their demise.
I suggest we get thishttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kyoketsu-shogeSince we're a dex build and not str.
>>42060877How about poisoned gauntlets like those two scrubs had at the beginning of the Zabuza arc?
>>42060966We need a stabbing and slicing weapon that's light We can use our chairs to make it stronger Plus if we get lucky and get a lightning or wind nature then we literally become speed demon
>>42061006I like it!>>42060849Supporting the Kyoketsu-shoge!
>>42061020>chairsShould be chakra
>>42060966>>42061006> letting our starting stats determine what we ultimately becomeultimate kek, it's like you think that we won't have the possibility to increase stats ever.
>>42061020It can be used to stab and slice anon... It also gives us range.
>>42061043That's later though idiot, Right now we ARE a dex character and should buy things that compliment that, Not shit that we can hardly use properly.
>>42061006Seems like a kunai with a disc attached. Cannot imagine a stupider weapon.
>>42060897>>42060912>>42060944"I was looking to stock up for tomorrow." you tell her. "Who knows what our Sensei is gonna throw at us, you know? I was thinking of some trap materials: explosives, wires, that kind of thing. Maybe a short sword as a main weapon or something. Do you have any recommendations?""Well..." Tenten muses. "A short sword is gonna cut into your budget quite a bit if you want decent quality, I don't think you could afford anything else if you bought it. As for trap materials, we've got plenty of wire and explosive tags. They're ususlly the go-to for that kind of thing.">A.You'll take the trap stuff>B.You'll take the Sword(or other weapon?)>C.Other
>>42061043Not at first. That's like buying a bow and arrow when you're a sumo wrestler.
>>42061047I was talking about in general plus didn't mean to quote anybody What the fuck is with captcha and streets
>>42061006Seems pretty cool, I'll vote for it.
>>42061069>A.You'll take the trap stuff
>>42061069>A.You'll take the trap stuff>B You'' take the Kyoketsu-shoge
>>42061069>>B.You'll take the Sword(or other weapon?)
>>42061069>B.You'll take the SwordTraps and shit later get used to using the sword now traps don't generally require much
>>42061069Traps and sword.
>>42061069>A.You'll take the trap stuffOne day, we will develop a school of supersonic sword techniques. But for now, it's trapmaster time.
>>42061069>C. Is there a mix of both? (like a Kyoketsu-shoge?)
>>42061069>A.You'll take the trap stuffFuck the swordfags.
>>42061069>B.You'll take the Sword(or other weapon?)>>42061099Also, what this anon said. I think we'll acquire plenty of experience with using traps and shit as the quest goes on, while the later we wait for something major like this, the more we're going to be fighting an uphill battle in trying to gain proficiency with it later.
>>42061099>traps don't generally require muchAHAHAHAHHAHA, Go and make a good trap right now then if it's so easy, Keyword GOOD.
>>42061099Not to mention very quickly become quickly ineffective and endgame Naruto traps are completely worthless.
>>42061171I think he means that traps don't require developing muscle memory and shit like a sword does.
>>42061171At what point did I say anything about making them?Are we not buying them?
>>42061188So are endgame swords. If you're not wielding a crystalized piece of a fallen god by the time you're in Naruto's endgame, you're absolutely worthless in a fight. Just look at Sakura.
>>42061171Remember when Sakura spent the time to make that giant log trap durring the chunin test only to have it destroyed in a single attack? Thats why no one actually uses traps that don't involve any actually jutsus in the naruto universe.
>>42061208>Are we not buying them?No we are buying the materials to make traps, You can't fucking buy already made traps!
>>42061188That's why we use Bulbasaur, then Wartortle, and finally Charizard like normal humans.
>>42061218>What are samurais?>What is Chakra Nature?>What is basic Chakra control?
>>42061091>>42061115>>42061122"What about another weapon?" you ask. "I was thinking of a Kyoketsu-shoge. Could I afford that and the trap stuff?""Not quite, but..." Tenten thinks to herself. "It's a bit cheaper than a sword. I guess I could get you a discount. But if you do, you'll owe me big time." she smirks. "I'm thinking, running errands for me?">A.You'll do it>B.Eh no thanks, just the trap stuff
>>42061244>A.You'll do itFUCK YEAH YOU ROCK TENTEN!
>>42061244>A.You'll do it
>>42061244>A.You'll do itHug her in thanks, then realize what you're doing and be embarrassed.
>>42061233Nigga put explosive tag at APut wire at B Put rock at C
>>42061244>>42061264Adding, "Right on!"
>>42061244>A.You'll do it>>42061284Let's not and say we did yeah?
>>42061243And how many of those were still around by the fight with Madara? You're thinking of the midgame. By the endgame, only people with plot device powers retain any ability to be effective.
>>42060434We could probably still be Mick Foley.I mean, even Mick didn't didn't have his stamina until WELL into his 30s.It's fucking trainable!
>>42061244>A.You'll do itTenten a cute.Not Samui tier, but pretty good out of our currently available choices.
>>42061303>Let's not and say we did yeah?Sure, we can totally say "Right on!At least it's not "Far out!"
>>42061318And we're obviously going to be one of those people. So shut up and pick the fucking sword.
>>42061323True. I just, I admire a man who is willing to put himself in the hospital to salvage a show that he was only getting $200 bucks for. That kind of dedication is rare in modern society.
>>42061318And what you're trying to tell me is that traps are more endgame useful than a fucking sword that can be made to slice through boulders and shit? And be augmented with a nature release?
>>42061256>>42061264>>42061274>>42061284>>42061299>>42061303"I'll do it, thanks Tenten!" you exclaim.She basks in your adoration for a bit."Yeah, yeah. Here's your stuff." Tenten hands you a bag while taking the money you offer her."i'll just track you down when I need your help, so go on home for now.">A.Thank her again>B.Go home>C.Go somewhere else
>>42061382Many kinds of traps can be imbued with many kinds of ninjutsu, IIRC.
>>42061382Different anon, Things other than fucking swords worked end game.>>42061390>A.Thank her again>C Go visit Kiba
>>42061382No. I was just being pedantic and musing on how crazy it'll get by the time we reach that point. I think getting a weapon is a good idea for now, I'm just looking forward to the day when we find ourselves wielding something utterly ridiculous.
>>42061366Which show was that?(Oh, and then when we're jounin sensei to some kids, we can be Mick Foley: Cheats at Food Eating Competitions.)
>>42061390>A.Thank her againthen>C.Go visit Kiba.
>>42061390>>C.Go somewhere elseLet's visit Sauce. Our rival needs to be strong to keep us sharp.
>>42061390>>A.Thank her againReally thanks! Though do you do this for everyone or am I just that cute as your walking out.
>>42061390>B.Go homeGo home, talk with our uncle, have a happy night of celebration before we officially become a child soldier.
>>42061413We eventually wield a SWORD MADE OUT OF OUR OWN FUCKING CHAKRA.Wait.. that sounds... familiar...
>>42061390>A.Thank her againThen.>C.Go visit Kiba.
>>42061390>A.Thank her again>B. Immediately climb up onto a rooftop and try using our new weapon as a grappling hook on the way home
>>42061405Yes I know that but we were talking about swords and traps
>>42061435A sword made of our chakra isn't nearly special enough. It would have to be made out of our chakra and the chakra of all our ancestors, or something like that. I really think you're underestimating how much we're going to have to escalate if this goes all the way to the end of the series.
>>42061481Why don't we just go be one of those Mist Samurai if we have such a boner for swords? Ninjas are all about trickiness, y'know?
>>42061415IWA Japan King of the Deathmatch, 1995.The grand finale was a no rope barbed wore exploding time bomb death match between him and Terry Funk. The ring was full of narbed wire wrapped boards with c4 on 'em. At the ten minute mark, the ring was supposed to be engulfed in explosions. Well, that failed. So Foley and Funk proceeded to tke ridiculously hard bumps onto the remaining barbed wire and c4 to save the show. After three matches, he pinned Funk, and then they went to the hospital together to be treated for an impressive collection of new burns and lacerations.
>>42061501>if we have such a boner for swords?"We" don't, It's only a few swordfags.
>>42061526Isn't that on the ridiculously violent wrestling from japan set that the ICP did commentary on once?
>>42061405>>42061416>>42061450"Thanks again Tenten, I mean it." you insist."Stop, stop, you're embarrassing me." she replies. "I'm going to get my money back out of you, you know?"You leave the weapon shop, planning to swing by Kiba's house on the way home.You find him outside his house playing with his dog, Akamaru."Oh, hey. What's up, Kon?" he asks as he looks up at you approaching.>A.You excited?>B.You disappointed?>C.Other>D.Nothing(Leave)
>>42061501Killer Bee uses seven swords.Insert Gundam 00 joke here.
>>42061573>A.You excited?>Wanna go over a gameplan for the eventual test Kakashi is going to give us?
>>42061573>C. You must be pretty disappointed to end up with a CAT PERSON on your team>Haha, just yankin' your chain
>>42061573>>A.You excited?>>42061621Also this lmao
>>42061573>C.Other"Guess who's gonna be spending some time with Tenten."
>>42061645Ah, you mean >>42061600I gotcha, I gotcha
>>42061573Who's the hottest girl in class? At least in your opinion. I'd say tenten.
>>42061660>>42061680>Thinking with your dicks this soonAnd we've located the retards!
>>42061696Just ignore them
>>42061680That's a conversation topic for later, anon.
>>42061680Which one knows flame jutsu?
>>42061680I don't know. For raw physical "hotness" Sakura and Ino have her beat. But there's a genuineness to Tenten that means she wins if we're discussing "beauty".
>>42061680Wow, some people head for waifus like a bullet train, don't they?
>>42061732As said, Retards thinking with their dicks, We just have to hope Laze doesn't include the minority options.
>>42061596>>42061621>>42061645>>42061662>>42061670"You excited?" you ask. "What do you think Kakashi Sensei is gonna have us do tomorrow?""Hell yeah, dude." Kiba smiles and gives you another thumbs up. "The Sensei usually have some kind of test for their teams, but we don't get to know what it is until it happens."Kiba puts his hand on his chin. "Not gonna lie, though. I am a bit disappointed that I don't have a girl on my team. It's not so bad though. We get to hang out, and Sasuke is the strongest from our class. Speaking of which, what do you think about Sasuke, Kon?">A.He's strong. Glad he's on our team>B.I would have preferred someone less stuck-up>C.I wish we had a girl too>D.Other
>>42061696>>42061706I was actually trying to set us up to be a victim of the "guy thinks he's gonna have time to hit on a girl while he's working for her, but she turns out to be a complete slave driver" gag.
>>42061751>A.He's strong. Glad he's on our team>Attitude is rather....Yeah but hey, We all have our quirks yeah?
>>42061751>B.I would have preferred someone less stuck-up
>>42061751>A. He's strong. Glad he's on our team>Seems like we're gonna have to work hard to match up with him tho
>>42061751>"He can be a bit of a ass, but he's alright I guess. Glad he's on our team all things considered.
>>42061751>>A.He's strong. Glad he's on our teamAdd something about how it's kinda sad that he's constantly living in his older brothers shadow.
>>42061751>>B.I would have preferred someone less stuck-up>>C.I wish we had a girl too
>>42061751>D.Other"He's alright. Not sure how well he'll work with a team, but I'm willing to give him a shot. Though yes, I too wish we had a girl. Oh well"
>>42061751>D.Other"Sasuke seems like a good enough person, and he's certinly strong, but would it kill the guy to lighten up a little? I don't think I've ever seen him laugh, or even smile."
>>42061751>>A.He's strong. Glad he's on our teamJust wish he could take the stick out of his ass. Who knows maybe he'll make it a back up weapon.
>>C> I wish we had a girl too
>>42061751>D.Other"With the way you say 'a girl', it sounds to me like you had a particular girl in mind."
So it just now hit me that there has been no mention of Naruto this entire time we've been playing, and the single mention of him in a write-in was replaced by some other clan name when it was utilized.So does he just not exist in this universe?
>>42061837>So does he just not exist in this universe?I sure hope not. I'm starting to think that Sai might be the container in this universe instead.
>>42061837OP states we know no one by the name of Naruto. Also Sai is here. My current theory is that Sai and Naruto have been replaced with Naruto still being the container meaning Dansuke (Probably mispelled don't want to look it up) has his hands on a very strong weapon who he will treat like a tool.
>>42061836Nah, he hasn't met what's-her-name yet.
>>42061768>>42061771>>42061777>>42061783>>42061785>>42061807>>42061815>>42061830"He's strong." you reply. "I'm glad he's on our team. I wouldn't have minded someone less stuck-up though. Or a girl, yeah.""Heh." Kiba shakes his head. "I get it though. If my sister was considered to be in the running for next Hokage by everyone in the village, I might have a complex too. Not to mention he's got quite the clan name to live up to."Kiba starts to head in to his house. "Well, it's about time I got in for dinner, it getting late. See you tomorrow, dude.">A.Say goodbye>B.Go home>C.Go somewhere else
>>42061929>A.Say goodbye>B.Go home
>>42061929>>A.Say goodbye>C.Go somewhere elseso see Sasuke. He's on our team as well, only fair.
>>42061929>A.Say goodbye>Go check out Mount Hokage
>>42061929SO MANY TELLS!
>>42061929>>A.Say goodbye>C.Go somewhere else Go bother sasuke. Just bother the piss outta him
>>42061929>>A.Say goodbye>>B.Go home
>>42061929>A.Say goodbye>Go see Sasugay
>>42061929>>C.Go somewhere elseSay hi to Sauce.
>>42061929>A.Say goodbye>C.Go somewhere elseVisit mom and dads grave, let 'em know how things are going.
>>42061988>going without our imouto
>>42061929Guys! We are missing something big! The Uchihas are still alive! Sasuke's brother hasn't murdered them all.
>>42062044I've said that like three times already, and no one seemed to pick up on it.
>>42062044People are too butthurt about Canon Sasuke to make an attempt to be friends.
>>42062044we better pick up the slack then
>>42061947>>42061968>>42061979>>42061980"Later Kiba." you wave as he heads inside.You have dinner to get to, but it's only fair that you go see your other teammate as well. You head in the direction of the Uchiha compound.As you arrive, you realize you don't actually know where Sasuke lives. There are some Uchiha roaming around, doing their police work. You could ask around.>A.Wander trying to find Sasuke's house>B.Ask a nearby Uchiha>C.It's getting late, and you have a celebratory dinner to get to. You'll see him tomorrow
>>42062079>B.Ask a nearby Uchiha
>>42062079> C.It's getting late, and you have a celebratory dinner to get to. You'll see him tomorrow
>>42062079>>B.Ask a nearby UchihaHope for Shisui
>>42062044I've NOTICED, but it leaves me wondering what his broodiness stems from in this continuity.Could be he's mom and dads least favorite, could be some other crazy shit, or it could just be that he's not great with people so he keeps to himself.
>>42062079>>B.Ask a nearby UchihaSorry shoulda thought about this more huh?
>>42062079>>C.It's getting late, and you have a celebratory dinner to get to. You'll see him tomorrow
>>42062079>B.Ask a nearby UchihaOkay, we need to make Sasuke laugh. That's our current mission in life.
>>42062133I want to be his friend. I want Sasuke to be like his alternate universe counterpart in Road to Ninja.
>>42062087>>42062089>>42062101>>42062115>>42062133You head towards the closest Uchiha. "Excuse me!" you call as the man turns around. "I'm looking for Sasuke Uchiha's house, can you help me find it?"The man snorts. "And just what do you want of my son this close to curfew? Shouldn't you be getting home? I'm sure whatever it is can wait until morning.">A.I'm on his team and I wanted to talk to him>B.Sorry sir, I'll head home>C.Other
>>42062195>A.I'm on his team and I wanted to talk to him
>>42062195>>A.I'm on his team and I wanted to talk to him
>>42062157A shameless flirt?>>42062195>A.I'm on his team and I wanted to talk to him
>>42062195>A.I'm on his team and I wanted to talk to himWe have Kakashi as team lead. Wanted to maybe get ideas hammered out. Pleased to meet you sir.
>>42062195>C.Other"Oh, I'm sorry, I didn't realize it was you, Lord Fugaku. I was wanting to talk to him about preparing for our tests tomorrow, but if you think it's too late in the day for that I'll leave."
>>42062211>A shameless flirt?>Majority of quest becomes that part from Persona 3 with the Operation: Babe Hunt on that beach
>>42062201>>42062208>>42062211>>42062213"Sorry, sir." you apologize. "We're on the same team, and I wanted to talk to him, maybe plan out some ideas for when we meet Kakashi Sensei tomorrow." you explain."Kakashi, huh." Sasuke's father Fugaku rubs his chin. "There might be time for a short conversation, but I don't think you'll have time to hash out any plans. Feel free to follow me though, I am heading home. Just don't stick around too long."You follow Fugaku to his house. When you arrive Fugaku calls into the house."Sasuke!" he shouts. "your teammate wants to see you!"Fugaku motions for you to wait as he heads in. Moments later, Sasuke comes out."Kon? he asks. "What are you here this late for? It's nearly dinner time. Could something not wait until tomorrow?">A.You wanted to come up with a plan for tomorrow>B.Something else>C.Nothing, sorry(Leave)
>>42062336>>A.You wanted to come up with a plan for tomorrow
>>42062336>A.You wanted to come up with a plan for tomorrow
>>42062336>A.You wanted to come up with a plan for tomorrow>B.Something elseApologize for losing track of time, we were talking with Kiba about this, too.
>>42062336>A.You wanted to come up with a plan for tomorrowWe need to demonstrate that hard work and being able to have a good time aren't mutually exclusive in a person. This is step one of that.
>>42062336>What's your opinion of Kakashi? What rumors have you heard that could be useful come tomorrow? Sorry for the intrusion, it's just I come up with some of my best ideas when sleeping.
>>42062392Eventually we become the guy known for showing up at the weirdest hours.1:30 AM>Hey Sasuke wake up! I just had the perfect idea for a new for a new jutsu.
>>42062438It must now happen!
So does Kon have any cool digs?
>>42062356>>42062361>>42062392>>42062412"Sorry for losing track of time, I was talking with Kiba too." you explain. "I wanted to see if we could come up with a plan for when we meet Kakashi Sensei tomorrow."Sasuke smirks. "Great enthusiasm there Kon, but there's honestly not much we can do right now. He could administer any type of test he wants, and we don't know anything about him. We certainly don't have time to gather information. I say we just take it as it comes. That's part of being a ninja too. You should head home and eat dinner. I've got dinner here myself in a bit.">A.Say goodbye>B.Something else>C.Leave
>>42062495Who knows? But I have some ideas for our casual attire.>>42062517>C.Leave
>>42062517>A.Say goodbye>See you tomorrow!I like this version of Sasuke!
>>42062517>A.Say goodbyeAlright, man. Well, thanks for entertaining our whim anyway. See you tomorrow.
>>42062528>>42062536>>42062538>>42062549"Alright then. I guess I'll see you tomorrow, Sasuke." you tell him as he heads back inside."See you." he waves.It's nearly curfew so you rush back home, still carrying all that equipment you bought.

>>42062633>A.Apologize>B.Explain what you were doingShit, I just realized: We're the member of the team who isn't a prodigy and keeps being late for things because he lost track of time. And our teacher is Kakashi. Assuming the timeline didn't diverge really early, we are going to hit him right in the nostalgia.
>>42062716...that's a good damn point, actually.
>>42062650>>42062659>>42062679>>42062683You'd love to explain the situation to your uncle, but you have to act before it's too late. You set your stuff down, and head into the kitchen where you see it. Your uncle's gyoza. The best of the best. You start chowing down right away."Honestly." your uncle laments. "All this ninja business. I didn't get it when it was my sister, and I still don't get it now."Eventually you get your fill of gyoza and start to settle down.>A.Apologize>B.Explain what happened>C.Ask about: (what?)>D.Something else

>>42062767>>42062824>>42062849"Sorry, Uncle Keiji." you apologize.You explain everything that happened this evening while he listens intently."I see." Keiji says as you finish your story. "I don't really know much about all this, but it sounds like things are going great. Your mother never really let me in on what she did, but I'm always here to listen if you need to talk, you know.">A.Tell him about: (what?)>B.Ask him about: (what?)>C.Get ready for bed
Well, it's getting late for me here, so I'm going to head to sleep. Have fun being ninjas, anons. I look forward to reading whatever shenanigans you get up to.

>>42062902>A.Tell him about:Our team

>>42062902>A.Tell him about: The TeamDo you have a twitter, Laze?
>>42062991That raises a very important question. There are cell phones in the Naruto universe so does that also mean there is a Naruto equivalent to Twitter?
>>42062936>>42062991Sorry, we're almost completely wound down at this point, so I'm making the call>>42062934It's been a long day, and you're tired. You head up to your room. You think about things as you drift off to sleep. Tomorrow's going to be a big day, too. You'll have to be ready. The last thing you think of as you drift off to sleep is that you feel like you can depend on your teammates. You know it'll all work out somehow.>End of Chapter 1Will probably try running again tomorrowIf anyone is still around and wants to ask anything, fire away.>>42062991I intend to make one right now. I'm thinking @LazeQM
>>42063034Alright, thanks for the thread Laze. For something based on Naruto and for someone who isn't a fan, you did a good job. Really sucked me into it.
One more thing, how do I into archive?
>>42063116Thanks, anon. We're archived.
