>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 Kon Karagowa, a Leaf Genin fresh off the heels of the graduation exam. Your character is defined by your choices, so write-ins are always encouraged. And remember to have fun!
>>42074588https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AZeyNVms7jw&list=PL3AC39BCAE0A97F85&index=4To think this morning, you were actually worried about running late. You slept in nearly until your 0700 hit time and had to rush to the academy as fast as you could, yet an hour after you arrived your Sensei still hasn't. Your teammates seem irritated as well. Kiba is tapping his finger on the desk repeatedly and his dog Akamaru sits on his head, wearing a similarly irritated expression to his owner. Sasuke isn't doing any fidgeting, but you can tell from his glare at the doorway that he's pissed.>A.Keep waiting in silence>B.Talk to Kiba>C.Talk to Sasuke>D.Do something else(what?)
>>42074636>Talk to them both.>"I don't suppose you guys would want to help me make a little surprise for Mr Tardy would you?"
>>42074636>D. Play with Akamaru!
>D. Go over our gear, ask Kiba and Sasuke what kind of equipment they brought.
>>42074636Ask what it is everyone specializes in. You're more of a bruiser who relies on speed, but you're not entirely sure what the other two do.
>>42074741As someone who hates Naruto and the influx of DBZ threads, I have to say that this shit has so far proven to not be shit. Maybe even fun if I'm honest.
>>42074741Block quests then faggot, not like your whining will really do anything other than get you reported for trolling/shitposting.
>>42074636>Talk to both
>>42074800I say we all make Naruto one shots of various different villages. Then they can use those original characters as guest stars!
>>42074728>>42074764>>42074784>>42074811You break the silence. "So guys, while we're waiting why don't we tell each other what all we can do, maybe do some strategizing?""Can't hurt, I guess." Kiba says as he stops tapping. "I'm sure you remember, but the Inuzuka clan uses ninja dogs trained from birth as companions in battle. By teaming up with them, we can track anything with a trail. As for combat, we've got a couple of unique jutsu that can be used to really put the pressure on opponents, and keep us at pretty good range too."With Kiba's piece said, Sasuke resigns himself to spilling the beans."Alright, it makes sense." he admits. "We'll pool our talents and brainstorm some tactics. As for me, you know from the academy that I'm more than competent at most things. I also know some basic fire ninjutsu. Our clan does have the sharingan, but I haven't unlocked it yet myself."After Sasuke finishes, he turns to you."Well, Kon?" he asks. "What do you provide to the team?">Write-in
>>42075059>Trap master here, If i have the supplies i can make almost any kind of trap, I'm also quite quick on my feet.
>>42075059>"I'm good at taijutsu but I really shine with weapons. Give me a ninjato and I'm your man."
>>42075059>"Speed, taijutsu, and a penchant for explosive tags. Or traps in general, I guess, but it's cooler if there's explosions involved. Speaking of, anyone short tags or wire? I bought some extras yesterday."
>>42075156Second.>>42075139We use a Kyoketsu-shoge not a sword.
>>42075186Huh. Should've went with a kusarigama instead. We could always get a sword later anyway. Doesn't mean we're forever locked out of that option.
>>42075266Swords are for Samurai, Not Ninja.
>>42075156"I've got good speed, my taijutsu is solid, and I've got a penchant for explosive tags. Or traps in general, I guess, but it's cooler if there's explosions involved." you explain. "Speaking of, anyone short tags or wire? I bought some extras yesterday."Kiba declines, saying that's not really his thing. Surprisingly enough, Sasuke takes you up on your offer for wire, since he didn't seem to have any."All in all, not bad." Sasuke says as he puts the spool of wire in his pouch. "Kiba can always know where the enemy is, Kon can prepare some subterfuge, and I can provide the major damage if need be."As you talk, the door opens. A man with white hair and a mask walks in. His headband is tilted to cover one eye."Talking strategy already, huh?" he asks. "Maybe this won't be half as bad as I thought.">A.Are you Kakashi Sensei?>B.Why were you so late?>C.We sure were, we've got to make sure our team is prepared for anything>D.Other
>>42075284Tell that to Leonardo. The best turtle ninja.
>>42075362>D. "Where do you get your masks? I want one."
>>42075362>C.We've got to make sure our team is prepared for anything>A.Are you Kakashi Sensei?
>>42075362>A.Are you Kakashi Sensei?>C.We sure were, we've got to make sure our team is prepared for anything>B.Why were you so late? Black cat cross your path?
>>42075362>"Yup. Cool mask. You Kakashi-sensei, then?"
>>42075362>C.We sure were, we've got to make sure our team is prepared for anything>A.Are you Kakashi Sensei?
>>42075363>Leo>best NTThat's not my nigga Michelangelo, but I'll give you props for picking the second best.
>>42075362>"Yeah. We actually end up balancing eachother pretty well. Kiba can keep a fair number of enemies busy and run them into my area where I set up some traps, then Sasuke hits them with a finisher while they're still figuring out which way is up."
>>42075504>Telling the person we're going to be fighting all our secretsRetard right here.
>>42075525Hes probably already read our file. Jounin at Kakashi's level probably get access to our school file and such.
>>42075525To be fair, we've got no idea if we'll actually be fighting Kakashi, as much as I agree that spilling our team-dynamics isn't the most intelligent idea.
>>42075525>not talking strategy with your teacherAlso,>Metagaming like a bitch
>>42075549Yes but we know there will be a test, It could be fighting, Or something else.
>>42075571>Kakashi's test in this universe?GET HIM THE NEW ICHA ICHA BOOK!
>>42075603True, but what sort of kid expects to immediately go toe-to-toe with a Jonin? Besides, the 'Yeah, we're talking strategy' option that was given was cringy as fuck.
>>42075402>>42075404>>42075415>>42075438https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vfMSO4lp518&list=PL3AC39BCAE0A97F85&index=10"We sure were, we've got to make sure our team is prepared for anything." you explain. "Are you Kakashi Sensei, then?""That I am." he answers. "Come follow me to the roof boys, we'll talk there."You all get up to follow Kakashi Sensei. You can tell that Kiba just barely managed to stop himself from blowing up in his face about his tardiness.You all get to the roof and sit down on a bench while Kakashi Sensei leans on the railing. It's a beautiful clear day with hardly a cloud in the sky, giving you a great view of Mount Hokage, with its five stone faces.Kakashi Sensei speaks up. "Well let's begin by introducing yourselves. Your likes, dislikes, dreams for the future... things like that.">A.Go first(Write-in)>B.Let someone else go first>C.Why don't you introduce yourself, Sensei?>D.Other
>>42075640>C.Why don't you introduce yourself, Sensei?
>>42075640>B. Let someone else go first.While we're doing this, OP, what's our family like? I know Uncle's not a ninja and not a big fan of ninjas, but there was something about a mother and/or sister being ninjas?
>>42075657Your Uncle is your only living family. Your mother (his sister) was a ninja.
>>42075657Pretty sure our mom is de->>42075692Called it.
>>42075640>A. "I wanna be the next Sage of the Six Paths! That's way cooler then Hokage!"
>>42075692What about father? Just not in the picture?
>>42075640>C.Why don't you introduce yourself, Sensei?He gives his canon answer we have to respond with that also.
>>42075728That's all I'm giving right now, you can ask your uncle if you want to know any more.
>>42075753Oh come on, man. You can't ask us what our hopes and dreams are if you don't give us the backstory.
>>42075765They've both been dead since the Nine-Tails attack when you were an infant. They unfortunately didn't have much influence on you either way.
>>42075811Well, that's fair enough.>>42075640>A. "Well, my mom and dad died during the nine-tails attack when I was still really little, but my mom was a ninja. She figured putting her life on the line for the sake of the village was worth it, and so that's what I'll do. Put myself in the line of fire to keep my friends and family safe. That and it's REALLY fun blowing things up."
>>42075848Second for when we eventually have to say our reason.
>>42075652>>42075676>>42075751"Why don't you introduce yourself, Sensei?" you ask. It seemed only fair."Oh, Me?" he responds. "Well, my name is Kakashi Hatake, and I don't really want to tell you my likes or dislikes. Or dreams for the future. I have plenty of hobbies."His non-answer gives the whole team a scowl."Well then, now it's your turn. Let's start from the right." he says, pointing to you.>Write-inAlso I can't believe no one has caught it yet
>>42075848We should also tell him we enjoy reading the Icha Icha books.For their plot. Yeah.
>>42075988We're Naruto just with a different face and name?
>>42075988>A. "Well, my mom and dad died during the nine-tails attack when I was still really little, but my mom was a ninja. She figured putting her life on the line for the sake of the village was worth it, and so that's what I'll do. Put myself in the line of fire to keep my friends and family safe. That and it's REALLY fun blowing things up.">Also I can't believe no one has caught it yetWe did.
>>42075988>Also I can't believe no one has caught it yetYou're not that clever, qm. The first thing I wanted to post was, "Lift up shirt and look at belly area."
>>42076022No, I just dropped a setting hint>>42076028You didn't, otherwise you'd all be freaking out
>>42075988>A. "Well, my mom and dad died during the nine-tails attack when I was still really little, but my mom was a ninja. She figured putting her life on the line for the sake of the village was worth it, and so that's what I'll do. Put myself in the line of fire to keep my friends and family safe. That and it's REALLY fun blowing things up.">>42076022Yeah, but it's okay because we don't wear an orange jumpsuit, constantly bitch and whine about dead parents to the point where batman's telling us to cool it, and are obsessed with being noticed. Amazing what having even one family member looking out for you will do for your self esteem, eh?
>>42075988>Also I can't believe no one has caught it yetyou mean the 5th head on the wall?
>>42075988>A. "Well, my mom and dad died during the nine-tails attack when I was still really little, but my mom was a ninja. She figured putting her life on the line for the sake of the village was worth it, and so that's what I'll do. Put myself in the line of fire to keep my friends and family safe. That and it's REALLY fun blowing things up."
>>42076084..Did Naruto ever complain about his dead parents? That was more of a Sasuke thing.
>>42076077Their were five faces. not 4 I caught it.
>>42076103>>42075640>giving you a great view of Mount Hokage, with its five stone faces.Ooooh.
>>42076111They both did. They even had a brood-off in one of the earliest episodes over who had it harder, the kid who never knew his parents, or the kid who watched them get murdered by his brother.
>>42076126Oh shit, that I didn't notice.
>>42076126Quite a few of the smart anons did.
>>42076126>>42076144Third already bit it, probably.
>>42075640>five stone facesfound it
>>42076028>>42076084>>42076105"Well, my mom and dad died during the nine-tails attack when I was still really little, but my mom was a ninja. She figured putting her life on the line for the sake of the village was worth it, and so that's what I'll do. Put myself in the line of fire to keep my friends and family safe. That and it's REALLY fun blowing things up." you explain."Admirable." Kakashi replies. "And what about you?" he points to Kiba."Heh. Well, I like dogs." Kiba says jokingly. "Shocker, I know. My dream is... to become Hokage!""Pfft.." Sasuke stifles a laugh. "Sorry Kiba, you're a skilled ninja, but your competition is so far out of your league, you don't even realize.""Hey!" Kiba barks at him. "You want to say that to me again?">A.Stay silent>B.Sasuke's right>C.Back Kiba up, he can do it if he works hard enough
>>42076319>D. not the time for this, save it for later
>>42076319>C. "Like your sister Sasuke?"(Itachi is a girl in this universe right? I think it was mentioned somewhere...)
>>42076352And that was suppose to be a D.Whoops.
>>42076347Pretty much. It's not a time for arguments.
>>42076319>"Sasuke, stop proding at Kiba. Let's not kill eachother over being Hokage when we're all still Genin, kay?"
>>42076389Support.I feel like Kon is going to be the mediator the world of Naruto always needed.
>>42076413Can we be a stoner too? >We call it ninja grass.
>>42076413Yes because hippies are GREAT mediators, You can piss off about that shit now.
>>42076413>This here's some prime Leaf-Village Leaf. Trust me, you might not need Fire ninjutsu to blaze up, but you'll feel like that's exactly what you doin.
>>42076347>>42076370>>42076386>>42076389"Guys, can we not do this right now?" you interject. "Not really the time. Let's not kill each other over being Hokage while we're all still Genin."Kiba takes your advice and backs off."Kon's right, you know." Kakashi speaks up. "You've all got a long road ahead of you before you can truly measure your worth as ninja. Alright Sasuke, you're the last one.""I..." Sasuke starts. "I want to try and surpass my brother. If he becomes Hokage, then I'll have to be greater than the Hokage.""Talk about your lofty goals." mutters Kiba.Kakashi addresses the group. "Well now that that's out of the way, we can get ready for our very first training exercise.">A.We're ready>B.What will we be doing?>C.Other
>>42076631>>B.What will we be doing?
>>42076631>"Groovy, what we doin then?"
>>42076631>B.What will we be doing?
>>42076631>A"Does it involve fighting? I bet it involves fighting. God I hope it involves fighting!"
>>42076631>B.What will we be doing?...Icha Icha?
>>42076687Kon isn't a blood knight.
>>42076753Sorry. Forgot to add my 'sarcasm' marks.
>>42076646>>42076673>>42076674>>42076692>>42076727>>42076779"What will we be doing?" you ask."I'm going to be your opponent in a test." Kakashi explains. "A test that all the Genin teams take to determine who stays, and who gets sent back to the academy.">A.Bring it on>B.What? that's ridiculous, we already graduated!>C.Other
>>42076864>C. "If we beat you, then you should have to go back to the Academy! And like...substitute for Iruka-sensei."
>>42076864>"Sounds fu-wait, what? WHAT?! Another year at the Academy, are you serious?"
>>42076864>A.Bring it on>That mean if we beat you, You have to go back to the academy?
>>42076864>D.Sounds excessive, are you sure that's a proper use of your authority?
>>42076912>>42076920>>42076942"Bring it on." you boast. "Does that mean if we beat you, You have to go back to the academy?""Confident, aren't we?" Kakashi Sensei replies. "I was going to allot all of tomorrow for this, but I think we can get it done today. Save us all some time." Kakashi hands out some directions. "Meet me here in one hour. Bring all your ninja tools. Also, you might not want to grab lunch, you're going to be exerting yourselves quite hard."Kakashi gets up to leave, and your teammates get up too."We were already prepared for this." states Sasuke."Yeah!" Kiba chimes in. "We've got this in the bag!">A.Head to the site immediately>B.Say something (Write-in)>C.Do something else
>>42077037>C.Do something elseif sensei doesn't know about my propensity towards explosives we should set in those lines
>>42077037So what exactly are we doing?
>>42077037We should bring some lunch anyways, but make sure it's edible cold for after we're done.
>>42077037>>C.Do something elseStart setting traps.
>>42077037>C.Do something elseGrab snack items. We don't need full meal. Just something to keep us going. Water too.
>>42077037>"So, Kiba, I was thinking that you and your dogs try and lead the enemy into my traps. Thing is, I'd need a way to let you know where the traps are so that you and the dogs don't get caught. Any ideas?"
>>42077037Also, you might not want to grab lunch, you're going to be exerting yourselves quite hard.">B. Stop eating a snack we've mysteriously been eating but no one else noticed. "Oops." Quickly put our rations away in our pack.
>>42077146Mark them. They can smell our urine and avoid it.Not even joking.
>>42077169and thus we became the pissing ninja
>>42077169I'd still like to hear what Kiba's got to say on it before we start downing thirty bottles of gatorade an hour before every battle.
>>42077187Kiba and Akamaru use it too.Dynamic Marking!
And then when everyone's hungry, we're like, "Well, I brought some brownies, but...they're not exactly normal brownies."And then Sasuke and Kiba each eat like, four of them.In case you didn't figure it out, they're pot brownies.
>>42077310The hippe shit got old fast.
>>42077342Duuuuuude. We get it alright. Your like totally apart of the establishment and like wanna vote republican. Totally killing my buzz bro.
>>42077402Indeed, And many great reaction images came out of it.
>>42077424Personally the laughing Cao Cao is my favorite.
>>42077071>>42077088>>42077124>>42077146You and your teammates head out to the site, a training ground on the edge of the forest, and arrive with plenty of time to spare, not that you expect Kakashi Sensei to be on time.You mention your plan to Kiba to set up traps and have him lead Kakashi Sensei into them."Not a bad idea, Kon." he responds. "If you're concerned about us falling victim though, just prick your finger and get a little blood on the tags. Akamaru will be able to sniff it out and avoid it."You go about the forest, setting up a handful of traps as inconspicuously as possible. By the time you get done, Kakashi Sensei is only just arriving. Half an hour late."Look's like everyone's here." he remarks. "So here are the terms of the test: You have until 1300, in two hours to grab these bells from me."After setting an alarm on a stump, he pulls out two bells and attaches them to his waist."Whoever doesn't get a bell by the time the alarm goes off, gets tied up to those logs." he explains pointing toward three training logs. "They will then have to watch as everyone else eats, then they'll be failed and sent back to the academy. Any questions?">A.Wait, only two of us can pass?>B.Say something else (Write-in)>C.Wait for his signal>D.Rush him now>E.Other
I hope Kakashi counters Akamaru with his dogs.That'd be a fun scene.Should totally try to get a doggie for Sasuke and ourselves.
>>42077493>When do we start?
>>42077493>C.Wait for his signalthis changes nothing
>>42077493>>A.Wait, only two of us can pass?Does this mean your are trying to get us to compete against each other? Or is it to get us to work together?
>>42077493>A.Wait, only two of us can pass?So...how bad of an idea would it be to use our new weapon right off the bat? Especially since we've had no training with it.
>>42077563>Especially since we've had no training with it.We might have had past experience with one, You never know.
>>42077608I don't know if Kon knows. Unless we've had training in many different weapons then I'm not sure how it will work out for us.
>>42077542>>42077563"Wait, only two of us can pass?" you ask."That's right." Kakashi replies. "Now to see what you're really made of. Will you all work together in order to get both bells? Or will you look out for number one, since there's no guarantee you'll get one of the bells?""Now..." as everyone gets into fighting poses, he pulls out a book and starts reading it. "You can go ahead and start at any time.">A.He's too cocky, rush him>B.Stand your ground>C.Put some space between you, get to the forest>D.Other
>>42077812>D. Go for the book. Spoil it for him."Hey my bro has a stack of those in his closet!"
>>42077812>A. "Rush him!"
>>42077812>>A.He's too cocky, rush him
>>42077837uncle* ...Whoops almost got my ninja quests mixed up.
>>42077837Second, And i believe you mean uncle.
>>42077812>C.Put some space between you, get to the forest
>>42077812>A.He's too cocky, rush himGuys we can divvy up the bells after e get them. We're not going to be able to get them at all without teamwork. He's a jonin after all.
>>42077862Yep. Though our uncle could be a 'bro'. He seems pretty accepting of our ninja ways despite not liking it.
>>42077840>>42077854>>42077872https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AQQ6QBmRAFA&index=14&list=PL3AC39BCAE0A97F85"Let's go guys!" you call out. "We can worry about who get the bells later, we're not getting any from a Jonin unless we work together!"You, Kiba and Sasuke all close in on Kakashi Sensei."Of course I know that." Sasuke remarks, prepping his kunai."You didn't actually think I'd abandon you guys, did you?" Kiba asks.Kakashi looks up, almost surprised. "Not even gonna attack me one at a time, huh?" He puts the book away. "So much for catching up on my reading, I guess.">A.Rush him with kunai>B.Throw shuriken>C.Go in unarmed>D.Try your new kyoketsu-shoge>E.Direct somebody else (Write-in)>F.Back off to the forest>G.Other
>>42078069>G.Other"HEY KAKASHI-SENSEI! I KNOW HOW THE BOOK ENDS!">C.Go in unarmed
>>42078093This works. Maybe bust out a clone to go for the bell. Make it an exploding tag clone at that.
>>42078069>Throw a few Kunai with rolled up tags on them, set up to unfurl when he deflects with them or they hit the ground. Aim for his legs so they'll land near him even if he dodges.The point of this attack is more to get him on the move than actually hit him, letting Kiba start harrying him. And if we do somehow catch him off guard, we don't have to put enough juice in to kill him.Then we just keep him on his toes with Kiba helping until he gets himself caught in a trap. Sasuke can hit him with a jutsu, cook him medium rare, and then we've got bells.
>>42078117>exploding tag clone at thatMaybe a little early in the game for that?
>>42078308We said we like to make things explode.Doing it right off the bat means we're true to our word.
>>42078093>>42078117>>42078129Sorry guys, vetoed. Too metagamey in my opinion.
>>42078326How the fuck is it metagamey?
>>42078326Alright then....Uh..let Sasuke and Kiba take the lead and just fill in wherever we might seem useful.
>>42078326How is it metagamey exactly?
>>42078356>>42078391Just exactly what kind of response would you be hoping to get out of him
>>42078356>>42078391Just let it go anon. We'll do that plan when Shippuden comes around.
>>42078391>>42078356Because we don't know the book is important to him at all?
>>42078458Clones, especially tag clones, are well above what most genin are capable of.
>>42078262Seconding this. Boom, baby.
>>42078534You just stick some exploding tags onto a clone anon.....
>>42078578That's the thing. We don't know how to make clones. Not yet at least. The most we could possibly do is the normal illusion clones but Kakashi would know what was up with that.
>>42078578What clone? All a normal clone can do is make illusions, and even that's in question for us. We got below-average ninjutsu scores, remember.
>>42078611Cross out 'Kakashi' and add in 'a Jonin'
>>42078614I think our stats should be placed in the first post from now on.Give people a much better idea at what we can do. Maybe with a list of what jutsus we can do too.
>>42078698I can tell you off the top of my head we've got a 2 in Taijutsu and a 3 (max) in speed
>>42078117>>42078262https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E8oFiJgsyEc&index=16&list=PL3AC39BCAE0A97F85You immediately form a hand seal. Focusing your chakra, you make a clone. It's just an illusion, but that's all it needs to be.Sasuke has moved in with his kunai. He makes passes at Kakashi, but the Jonin is too fast. He merely leans out of the way, avoiding every hit.With his dodging, he's managing to get Sasuke in Kiba's way. Every time Sasuke takes a swipe, Kakashi is leading him into the path of Kiba's attacks, forcing him to back off.Meanwhile, you put your plan into effect, your clone runs towards Kakashi, feigning an attack. As it approaches Kakashi glances over."Is that illusion supposed to accomplish something?" he asks as he lets the clone pass harmlessly through."No." you reply. "But the explosive might."Kakashi notices the kunai you through behind the clone, and the explosive tag attached.Sasuke jumps back, and Kakashi jumps as the kunai hits the ground and explodes.He was close enough to reach a tree branch, where he currently stands."Not a bad move." Kakashi notes. "You still left me far too many options for that to work, though."The three of you look at each other. "What's the plan from here?" Kiba asks.>Write-in
>>42078710Iirc from last thread, we actually have a 1.5 in Taijutsu.
>>42078698I'll make sure to do that.
>>42078721>"This."Set off the explosives in that tree.>"Let the games begin!"
>>42078757Were there explosives planted in said tree?
>>42078721You know what we were talking about earlier? That.
>>42078782We set up traps all over the place. I'd be disappointed if we DIDN'T rig 80% of the trees in the area to blow.
>>42078782Dude, we trapped the fuck out of the woods before Kakashi showed up. Once he went into the trees, he played right into our hands.
>>42078757Second.>>42078782THERE ARE EXPLOSIVES EVERYWHERE ANON! WE HAD ABOUT AN HOUR TO RIG THE WHOLE FOREST! AHAHAHAHAHAHAHHA!
>>42078721Drive him towards the traps, keep him as off balance as we can. Between our knowledge of where we placed them and Kiba being able to smell them, we should be able to avoid stumbling into them ourselves. I'd trust Sasuke to be smart and fast enough to read our movements to stay away, himself. Mask the tactic under the guise of us rushing in and trying to gang up on him, so he doesn't immediately guess what we're doing. He will eventually, of course, he's Kakashi. But this way we can at least have more of a shot than we otherwise would. And if we get him distracted long enough, have Sasuke hit him with a fireball. Again, probably won't work, but better shot than we'd otherwise have.
>>42078809>>42078816>>42078825Sorry, I was away for a bit. Blow this shit.
>>42078757Oh man. I can see it now. We're the calm, cool mediator outside of battle, but once things start exploding we become a total arsonist/Pyromaniac.
>>42078842Of course my good sir!>>42078856LET THE WORLD BURN!
Our nickname is now "Sparky".
And somehow Kakashi managed to plant that trees explosive on one of our teammates. Nobody knows how, but it happened.
>>42078721>"Millions of faces all fleeing like mouses~>Millions of faces with fire on their houses~>Watching the masses bow down to their king~>These are a few of my fa-vor-ite things~"
>>42078721Our goal is to win.His goal is to not lose.All he has to do is destroy the bells and that'll be good enough for him. It's from Xiaolin Showdown but I think Master Fung and Kakashi think on similar wave-lengths at this point. The lesson here is to learn how to handle defeat.
So, after we're done dealing with Kakashi, how are we going to take down all those explosives we set up? What happens if we forgot the location of some? Did we put blood on every tag?
>>42078904But only after messing with the seal to reduce the explosive power significantly. He's a troll, but he wouldn't risk killing or even seriously harming a student.
>>42078938We put a droplet of blood on every tag so Akamaru and Kiba wouldn't get too close. If we have to, we have them help us look.
>>42078880"Sparky Sparky Boom Man"
>>42078880Beware of "Mad Sparks" laugh?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2VBr7lTcEwo
>>42078880I'd rather have explosive bubbles.
>>42079067Let's hope we meet Utakata, then.
>>42079067Explosive bubbles are shit.

He feeds Akamaru a pill and makes a hand seal. "Here it comes, Sensei." Kiba announces. "My strongest jutsu! Beast Human Clone!"Akamaru transforms into a copy of Kiba and both of them take on a more feral appearance. They both rush towards a legitimately surprised Kakashi, who is forced to jump around the trees to evade.You follow and catch one of your wires that you set up earlier. You pull it as Kiba and Akamaru push Kakashi towards a rigged tree.As Kakashi lands on the branch, his foot catches your wire and the trap goes off, causing a huge explosion. A few seconds pass, and you don't see anything.>A.Check the smoke>B.Check the surroundings>C.Give directions (Write-in)>D.Other
>>42079172>B.Check the surroundings>Get up into one of our rigged trees
>>42079172>>C.Give directions (Write-in)Back off! He's probably hiding!
>>42079172>B.Check the surroundings
>>42079172>D. "Yo. Kakashi. I know that didn't work. Come on out." Guard our posterior.
>>42079172>"Kiba, you smell him? Shit, I hope I didn't blow up the bells."
>>42079218>Guard our posterior.Metagaming.
>>42079229Yeah, let's us the expert tracker.
>>42079172>C.Give directions (Write-in)Have Kiba and Akamaru sniff around, and Sasuke use their feedback to target a fireball.
>>42079286It's not metagaming to know back shots are the easiest way to take someone down.
>>42079307It's metagaming to figure that he would use a back shot when we can't see him.
>>42079286Well I mean stay on guard, but I suppose specifically the 'butt' part kinda does seem like I'm referring to the thousand year of pain technique. Posterior is just a fun word tho.
>>42079327Not really, pretty much any attack is most effective coming from behind.
>>42079172>"Hey, Sasuke. He's probably going around Kiba and Akamaru to come for me, since I'm the one who can set off the traps. When he does, that's your opening. Kay?"
>>42079458Actually, seconding this. When he comes, he'll probably come for us. And that'll be Sasuke's chance to hit.
>>42079194>>42079202>>42079209>>42079229>>42079288>>42079306You brace yourself and scan your surroundings, while asking Kiba. "Do you smell him anywhere, Kiba?"Kiba and Akamaru sniff around. "His smell disappeared right after the explosion started, probably a Substitution Jutsu. He should be nearby but I don't smell him right now, keep your eyes peeled."The three of you stay vigilant, but by the time you notice him, it's too late.You hear a voice from underneath you. "Earth Release: Double Suicide Decapitation Technique!"Kakashi's hand reaches up from the ground around your ankle and pulls you down, burying you up to your neck."That should do it." Kakashi says as he climbs out of the ground. "Now I won't have to deal with those traps of yours."Your teammates look nervous. They're running out of ideas. You notice some singeing on Kakashi Sensei's clothes, indicating that he only just escaped the explosion. If you could expand the effected area, it might catch him before he can escape. You are unable to move right now though, so setting off the traps isn't an option. Unless...>A.Kiba keep going with the plan, you can still set off the traps somehow>B.Back off, guys get out of here>C.Get me out of here guys, I can't move>D.Other
>>42079629>A.Kiba keep going with the plan, you can still set off the traps somehow>It's risky but...Try to set off one of the explosive tags on us to get out.
>>42079629>D. Now is the time to look into thyself Kon. Now we must find our resolve AND EXPLODE OUT OF THE MOTHERFUCKIN GROUND AND HIT HIM WITH OUR NEW WEAPON!
>>42079629>>A.Kiba keep going with the plan, you can still set off the traps somehowCaptcha is being ominous with wheelchairs
>>42079629Hey Kiba, I tagged the traps like you asked me too, find for Sasuke. Doubles up on em with him. I'll work on my own way out.
>>42079657>A.Kiba keep going with the plan, you can still set off the traps somehow>Explosive extraction time
>>42079657Ho boy risk vs reward...Second.
>>42079629You know if we got a hand free, we could throw our knife on a rope at the tree and use that to pull ourselves out.
>>42079629>D.Other"Kiba, you know where the tags are. Sasuke, your fire jutsu can set them off. Get him in position and you can detonate a bunch at once, that's our best bet."
>>42079709We can't get a hand free, We're literally buried up to our neck.http://naruto.wikia.com/wiki/Earth_Release%3A_Double_Suicide_Decapitation_Technique
>>42079629"Kiba, you know where the traps are. Sasuke can probably set off some of them. I'll get myself out, you two just stay in the game."
>>42079629>"Don't just stand there, Sasuke, ROAST HIS ASS!"
>>42079657Have you ever set off a firecracker in your closed fist anon
>>42079789Agreed. Let's work ourselves out in a way that doesn't detonate our giblets.
>>42079789Yup, I'm betting there's a way to lessen the explosion though, Also as i said, High risk high reward.
>>42079789My cousin lost some fingers that way.Which is why I say this is a bad idea, and we should just dig our way out. If we can get a kunai in our hands, we should be able to shift around enough to dig out.
>>42079818I think we'll need a few months at least before we can start making/using tags that direct explosive force in a specific way (ala shaped charges)
>>42079823...It's pure packed earth and rocks anon, We can't dig out.
>>42079849THEN WE SHALL DIG DOWN!
>>42079863I was going to say 'Then we punch our way out'. But that works too. I bet Kakashi made himself a set of tunnels too.
>>42079863>>42079876Dear god you guys are denser than bleach questers....
>>42079876I'm pretty sure that technique closes the earth behind you as you dig.
>>42079876Which he probably collapsed behind himself so we couldn't use them to escape. That said, the earth in that direction wouldn't necessarily be packed, so we might be able to make ourselves wiggle room that way.
>>42079900Well it's either we explode ourselves, try to dig, or do nothing. I say we do nothing and meditate.
>>42079958And not try and help our team? Get the fuck outta here!
>>42079958Oh and try to get Akamaru to dig us out I guess.Hopefully he just doesn't decide to wizz on us.
>>42079629>B. Back off, guys get out of here>Take a quick nap to brainstorm something crazy
Ignoring the option that would instantly kill you>>42079668>>42079680>>42079720>>42079750>>42079782https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5kQWQiMypjc&list=PL3AC39BCAE0A97F85&index=18"Keep going Kiba, we can still do the plan!" you shout from your hole in the ground. "We've almost got him, you don't need me!"You make a quick glance at Sasuke and he understands. He takes off after Kiba, who continues his assault on Kakashi, pushing him towards another rigged tree."You can keep trying, but the result will be the same." Kakashi says as he dodges Kiba and Akamaru's swipes. "Assuming you can even still set any of these off anyway."As he says that, he lands in a tree you rigged with explosives."Now!" Kiba shouts as he and Akamaru jump back.You see Sasuke make some of the fastest hand seals you've ever seen, and unleash his jutsu."Fire Release! Fireball Jutsu!" Sasuke shouts as he releases a giant ball of flame on the tree Kakashi is currently on.Kakashi barely has time to be surprised at Sasuke knowing that high level of a technique before the flames engulf the tree and cause the largest explosion yet.Kiba dives into the smoke immediately afterwards, ignoring the heat and debris, led by his nose. He comes out the other side holding two bells triumphantly."Yes!" he shouts as he tosses one to Sasuke. "We did it! How do you like that, Sensei?"Kakashi emerges from the smoke, singed but relatively unharmed. "Good job. That was definitely worth a passing grade.">A.We did it!>B.Can somebody get me out of here>C.So do I not pass or what>D.Other
>>42080178>B.Can somebody get me out of here
>>42080178>A.We did it!>B.Can somebody get me out of here>D. Grats on passing guys.
>>42080178>A.We did it!>B.Can somebody get me out of here>Congrats Sasuke! Kiba! You guys can pass now!
>>42080178>C.So do I not pass or what
>>42080178>B.Can somebody get me out of here>C.So do I not pass or what
>>42080216Second, We may not pass but we're glad our team and friends did!
>>42080178>>A.We did it!>>B.Can somebody get me out of here>>Congrats Sasuke! Kiba! You guys can pass now!
>>42080178>D. "Alright. Tie me up and start eating. I gotta go to the academy with Kakashi."Take it with a shit-eating grin.
>>42080178>A.We did it!>D.Other"Congratulations on passing, guys"Then we go silent a beat for comedic effect before saying>B.Can somebody get me out of here
>>42080178>If you two pass instead of me you owe me your lunches, y'hear!
>>42080178>"Fuck yeah! That was totally awesome! God damn, I love exploding tags.">"No no, it's cool. I need to work on my ninjutsu and genjutsu anyways, they're both seriously in the shitter."
We should laugh at the explosion. Find enjoyment in it. It was a big one it seems.
>>42080312our Ninjutsu is 2.0 which is above average for a genin. Our gen is shit though.
>>42080178>D. "Alright. Note to self, Fire Jutsu and explosive tags are a good thing."
>>42080304HAH include this no matter what please for the love of god!
So, I had a thought. The team's gonna need a medic, especially considering we're gonna have explosives that enemies may use against us. I was thinking Akamaru for the test. Dog saliva contains a natural antiseptic. If Kiba asks around for improving the medicinal properties, Akamaru could end up just licking wounds clean of poisons, venom, or whatever else, then it'd just have to be bandaged up right.
Sorry guys, dinner. Back in a few
>>42080304>>42080371No, it's very, very bad. Incredibly cringy, very meta, he never once mentioned tying us up.
>>42080428see bottom line>>42077493>"Whoever doesn't get a bell by the time the alarm goes off, gets tied up to those logs." he explains pointing toward three training logs. "They will then have to watch as everyone else eats, then they'll be failed and sent back to the academy. Any questions?"
>>42080414That is an adorable idea and I am all for it. Doctor Puppy will be the best medic.
>>42080428Oh really?>"Whoever doesn't get a bell by the time the alarm goes off, gets tied up to those logs." he explains pointing toward three training logs. "They will then have to watch as everyone else eats, then they'll be failed and sent back to the academy. Any questions?"Read the thread before you post retard.

>>42080477>>42080499>>42080505While I'll agree with you guys, I will say it doesn't make that line any less cringy.
Is it too late to go full raikage and specialize in ninja wrasslin?
>>42080526It really isn't.>>42080545Yes we're the trap master now.
>>42080561Yeah it is. It just screams 'I'm onto your scheme' to me.
>>42080594The whole point of this is to learn how to accept failure. I'd rather have Kon accept it gracefully instead of bitchin and moaning.
>>42080594It REALLY isn't, It's accepting the fact that IC we think we're getting sent back the the academy and yet we're being smut about it also.
>>42080620>>42080627There's a difference between resigned acceptance and a shit-eating grin.
>>42080654Dear god you are moronic to the extreme aren't you?
>>42080654Why do we have to be resigned? We're still alive. We still have the knowledge in our brain and can continue to learn. We'll be the oldest but best academy student until they force us out when we're a crotchety old man.
>>42080707>>42080716I just don't think that "Welp, time to get kicked in the balls" is the correct attitude to have about this.
>>42080748Some people can accept it, other can't. Either way its gonna happen and your going to have to get through it.With victory you learn one lesson.Thousands of lessons in failure.
>>42080867Look, think about it however you want, but just the way it was written sounds almost like a bid for attention. You want to be cool about it, be, "Hey, don't worry. I'm just in it for the explosions, and today did NOT disappoint."

We did it, guys!" you shout, still in your hole in the ground. "Congratulations on passing Kiba, Sasuke. I mean it, nice job. So uh... you think someone could let me out of here?"Kakashi pulls you up, then the two of you start walking toward the logs."Wait!" say Kiba and Sasuke simultaneously."Take this, you earned i more than I did." Sasuke says as he forces the bell into your hands."Hey! Kiba objects. "I was going to do that! Fine, you take this!" he says as he forces his bell into Sasuke's hands."What? No, you take it!" Sasuke says as he pushes it back towards Kiba.The two continue to push the bell towards each other, while you and Kakashi Sensei look on."Heh" you hear a slight laugh from your Sensei. "You can stop now, boys. I won't be failing anybody. You all pass.">A.Wat>B.How>C.Why>D.Some other reaction
>>42081138>>D.Some other reaction"Wat. How. Why? You dick"
>>42081138>D. "Do all get to have lunch too?"
>>42081138>D. ....Cool. But seriously, can someone dig me out? I've still got wire around my fingers and I'm starting to lose feeling in them.
>>42081183>Kakashi pulls you up, then the two of you start walking toward the logs.LEARN TO READ!
>>42081138>D.Some other reaction"Ooohhh. I get it. That's mean, sensei."
>>42081138>>42081218Seconding.Also,>D. "Wait, was this whole thing seriously just a team-building excersize?"
>>42081218Veto, Fuck hippies.
>>42081336This is a dense response coming from someone who just planned this thing, I'd advice against it.
>>42081158>>42081161>>42081162>>42081209You stop thinking for a second. "What? Why?"Even through his mask, you can tell Kakashi is smiling."The point of this training was to try and foster divisiveness among the group. Since one of you wouldn't pass, you would all look out for yourselves. But not you guys. From the very beginning you realized that the only way you would ever get the bells from me was by working as a team. There was no hesitation. You all worked seamlessly together and never worked for your own benefit, but for the benefit of the team. I honestly never expected a team of fresh Genin to work together like that. Even now, you keep saying how the others should pass. You all passed with flying colors. I look forward to being your Jonin instructor.">A.React (How?)
>>42081343>Fuck hippies.And how!
>>42081426>Soooo....Does that mean we get to eat now?
>>42081426Well, Awesome. HIGH FIVE GUYS! WOOO!
>>42081426"Oh. Alright, that makes sense. Cool. So, what do we do now, then?"
>>42081426>A.React (How?)"Please tell me you're buying lunch."Or dinner, if it's later in the day.
>>42081496>I must samefag Groovy as hard as i can! Surely no one will notice!

"You hear that guys, we all pass! This is great!""Yeah, yeah, I heard." says Sasuke as he pushes Kiba's arm off, trying to fight the giant grin off of his face."So can we eat now?" you ask."Sure thing, guys." Kakashi answers. "Come on, I brought enough for everyone.You all sit down to eat lunch, and Kakashi Sensei addresses you. "Since we got this done today, you all have tomorrow off before we start on missions. So enjoy it. While we're here though, feel free to ask me anything. I might be able to give you a bit of an idea of what being a ninja is like.">A.Ask (what?)>B.Eat in silence
>>42081639>A.Ask (what?)"Since we're fresh out of the academy, we're not gonna get any cool, important jobs for a while, right?"
>>42081639>Don't suppose you know any tricks to learning Kage Bunshin no Jutsu quicker do you? Also can you tell us what we did right and what we did wrong so we can improve?
>>42081639>"Any chance you can get us jobs where things explode? I've heard stories of genin going out and catching cats and shit, but...well, those sound boring. For me anyways, I'm sure Akamaru would have a blast herding stray cats.">"Hey, Kiba, you and Akamaru mind sticking around after and helping me find the traps? I don't wanna be responsible for leaving a bunch of stray explosives."
>>42081639>A.Ask (what?)"Is there anything we should do in preparation for the missions? I figure they're not going to be anything serious for a while, but are there any tools we'll need?"
>>42081639>A. "What was your first day with your jounin like?"
>>42081639Why you always late?
>>42081847Why you no speak good English?
I wonder if one day we could learn to summon pic related?
>>42081916I don't see any reason why we couldn't. Potentially you could learn to summon any animal. Why buffalo, if you don't mind me asking?
>>42081953I just think they're neat.
>>42081916Mice would be better. They can sneak around and make/set traps for us.
>>42081977Nah man, Rats!
>>42081997You get the idea.
>>42081670>>42081758>>42081776"Sensei." you speak up. "Can we get some missions that aren't just like chores and stuff that they usually have new Genin do?""I'll see what I can do." Kakashi assures you. "We'll be doing low level missions for a while, but I know you guys could hold your own on a C rank mission, so I'll keep my eye out for a suitable one.""What was your first day with your Jonin instructor like?" Kiba asks."Heh." Kakashi laughs. "We actually did this exact same test. It's something of a tradition, I guess. My team didn't do nearly as well as yours did, though.""Mind telling us why you're always late?" Sasuke asks."Well, that involves my old team as well." Kakashi responds, looking nostalgic. "but I think I'll save that story for another time."You all chat a bit more before you finish eating. Kakashi Sensei and Sasuke head off, while Kiba sticks around to help you take care of the remaining traps.Afterwards, you head back home as well. You can't help but smile. You and your teammates worked together flawlessly and showed your instructor what you could do. It was a pretty great accomplishment, but this is only the beginning. You've still got quite the road ahead of you. Yet somehow thinking that, only gets you more and more excited.>End of Chapter 2Probably not running tomorrow, but will likely run Wednesday. Keep an eye on the twitter, @LazeQMSticking around for a bit if anyone has anything they want to ask.
>>42082028Cool. See you Wednesday, then, Laze. Thanks for running.
>>42082028Thanks for running.I read the first thread while waiting for this post and this quest seems pretty good.Much better than I expected after seeing there was another Naruto quest in the catalog.
>>42082038Thanks for playing.>>42082090Considering this is actually my first attempt at a quest, that means a lot. Thanks.
>>42082028Thanks for running mate, good show
