https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tI55p41FYik&index=3&list=PL3AC39BCAE0A97F85You wake up and stretch your arms out. It's a beautiful morning, and you've got the day off from ninja duties. After rolling out of bed and getting yourself dressed, you hear a loud thump outside your window. You walk over to check it out.As you open the window and look out, you're met with a kunai sticking out of the wall. The handle has a note on it that reads: "You're working today"You head downstairs and find your Uncle at the table, with breakfast laid out."Morning, Kon." he greets you. "You got any plans for your day off? Maybe hanging out with a friend or some ninja training? If you don't have anything going on, you could always stick around and give me a hand at the restaurant."You think to yourself as you munch on some toast. Tenten probably expects you to show up and help out. You could just decide to do something else, however.>A.Head to the weapon shop to help out>B.Go train>C.Go meet up with somebody>D.Stay home
Let's boulder!Wait. That's not right...
>>42111635>>A.Head to the weapon shop to help outMaybe sneak in some lessons on how to better use our new weapon...
>>42111635>>A.Head to the weapon shop to help out
>A. Head to the weapon shop to help outHey OP, are you sure you really want to include an Intelligence stat?
>>42111635>A.Head to the weapon shop to help out"I promised a friend I'd help her with her shift at the weapons shop. If I get back in time I'll help with the restaurant, though."
>>42111635>A.Head to the weapon shop to help out
>>42111743I chose to use the system used by the official databooks. The stats are mostly to compare your ability against other characters. You can preform feats of speed roughly equal to Sasuke, who also has 3.0 speed, but you're both slower than Kiba, at 3.5.So basically intelligence tells you who you can and can't outsmart.
>>42111635>A.So, on the topic of training. There's a few things we can do. We can work on razor wire, maybe come up with jutsu so it's hidden from sight, come up with different kinds of nets where we pull a wire and the net springs into place. The nets could also use regular wire to bind people in place spiderweb style, more and more complex wire patterns and faster placement of them.We could also work on Explosives. Making our own tags, increasing the yield, hiding them better, all that jazz. Shaped charges and even complex mechanisms can happen down the line.Main thought is we should end up as the Sakura of the group, almost. The smart one that understands the textbook definition of how shit works, or at least the math behind it. This has the added quirk of us not actually having Sakura's level of Chakra Control, meaning we can understand the theory without being savant-like in practice.
So. Think we should get weapons for our teammates when we get more money? Sword for Sasuke obviously. Wolverine claws for Kiba?
>>42111875I think we should invest more in our own studies, ala >>42111868We can get gifts for them on holidays, but day to day they can buy their own shit.
>>42111854Does Intelligence stack when you plan with more people?
>>42111907Well, based on how it works in the real world I'd expect it stacks but has seriously diminishing returns.
>>42111854I would suggest making so that intelligence would be an automatic thing. On a written exam we would be nothing special. Automatic combat ideas (Our choices you auto suggest in combat) are nothing special. If TG does a write in then our intelligence is equal to the strength of the write in. What do you think?
>>42111932Int stacks, but -x! where x is the number of people involved?
>>42111900Kinda meant this sword.
>>42111635>CMeet Kakashi. The knife might be from him.
>>42111875If they want weapons, they can buy them themselves.
>>42112076Again, they can buy their own shit. We have our own gud to be gittin.
I was mulling this over in my head earlier and I was thinking these would be good ideas for building up Kon as a ninja.Now some people were suggesting we make Kon a trap master, but even though we should absolutely use traps and strategy to great effect, I think for Kon we should build him as a Weapon/Ninjitsu fighter.Our main stats are speed and Stamina/taijutsu, but our strength is weak, and we have good Ninjutsu as a backup. Low strength is bad for someone based around physical fighting, but if we started training with our Kyoketsu Shoge, and perhaps a sword or a Staff like weapon (Such as a monk spade for reach) we would have a range advantage over taijutsu specialists, which is very important in this universe considering people like the hyuga only needing a touch to disable you, or others to inflict something on you, which our high speed will only help exploit. With weapons mastery we can deal lethal damage and still be tricky having multiple weapons to use, (A tripping weapon, a weapon with reach, a sword for pure lethality etc.) and of course an enemy would mostly have to rely on dodging since most ninja would not be able to block our attacks very easily, another thing an exceptional speed could help exploit. We can use our good ninjitsu as a backup, having a variety of utility and offensive moves, as well as perhaps some buff on weaponry for extra lethality or utility. A flaming sword (although lightning is also a contender) having numerous uses such as lighting traps (or peoples clothing) with ease, warding off animals such as bugs (which are used by more than just Shino’s clan), illuminating the area, as well as giving away our position (Which could be used intentionally to allow someone to ambush us, only to be ambushed by teammates hiding outside the radius of the fire) as well as some other uses fire can naturally provide.>Cont
>>42111659>>42111679>>42111743>>42111758>>42111778After finishing your breakfast and saying goodbye to your uncle, you head over to the weapon shop to help out Tenten like you promised.As you approach, you find Tenten standing out in front of the shop, and a "Closed" sign on the door."Hey, Kon." Tenten calls out. "We're closed for the day so we can restock. I need you to come help me get the new stock from the supplier on the other side of the village."You follow her to a large building with several smokestacks sticking up out of it. To the lef of the building is a large shed."We already paid the supplier." Tenten explains. "So we're just transporting the goods."She opens the door of the shed, and inside you see kunai and shuriken strapped together in belts, and stacked nearly to the ceiling."At our shop, we usually make the larger weapons ourselves." Tenten goes on. "But when it comes to kunai and shuriken, they make them in bulk here. We've got about ten thousand shuriken and five thousand kunai to move today, so let's get to work.">A.Alright, strength training! Let's take as many as we can carry!>B.Can we get a cart or something>C.I'm not doing this>D.Other
>>42112088He's the one who gave us this day off. If it was from him, he'd say something like, "You're on a mission today."
>>42112028Pretty much how I was going to do it
>>42112143>A.Alright, strength training! Let's take as many as we can carry!Then set take 20% off and use this for strength AND endurance training. Since this is cross town and all.
>>42112143>B.Can we get a cart or somethingWe can train when we're not on the clock, it'd be better to do this quickly so that we can go train later.
>>42112143>>A.Alright, strength training! Let's take as many as we can carry!"Although. Couldn't we just transport them through scrolls?"
>>42112143>A.>D. "Groovy. Let's get started, then."
>>42112143>A.Alright, strength training! Let's take as many as we can carry!
>>42112143>B.Can we get a cart or somethingWe'd strain ourselves trying to carry all of them.
>>42112193After all, we have speed and stamina, not strength.
>>42112143>B.Can we get a cart or somethingSave our strength. Not that you can't train. Be more leg work this way, I think
Why do y'all want to do this in particular as strength training? We can go train ourselves later.
>>42112141Another possibility is learning to absorb chakra. This would likely be learned first by absorbing chakra through our hands and at some point would be able to be channeled through our weapon. Rather than expel ninjitsu through a weapon we could absorb it. If this were possible it could drain an opponent while refilling ours, or possibly with the right amount of mastery harmlessly absorb incoming deadly ninjitsu projectiles, or disrupting seals or traps by messing with the chakra engraved in them. This would likely be as close to a truly ‘unique ability’ as we would ever get, although it has been done before by other ninja, it would be how we apply it in which we would stand apart.If we were to become skilled with throwing weapons (Kunai etc.)we would be much more effective at range and would limit approach options, giving us better trap options, and eventually we would be able to ricochet them off each other allowing for complex ranged kills and unexpected attacks.Our Ninjitsu (yet to see what we can learn) will give us options to set up an approach or kill, as well as retreating, misdirection, barriers, cancelling out enemy projectiles with our projectiles, etc. Using Ninjitsu in conjunction with accurate skill with throwing weapons will give us considerable ranged options, and with our weapon skill we can hold our own in melee, and in addition to using any traps or strategy we can use with our teammates we will become a threat at most all ranges (All but ultra long range), while still being versatile enough that we can adapt to most situations.What do you all think of this?(And for Laze would the chakra thing be possible at some point down the line.)
>>42112265I'm still wondering if it's possible to just scroll transport all of them.We'll need scrolls in the future anyway. With all the traps and weapons we have planned.
>>42112296If Tenten would do that then she couldn't make us work off our debt.
>>42112265Or, we can train ourselves now and get something else done in the process.
>>42112327That's assuming a lot with our pitiful strength.
>>42112340Hell, we may not even get done till sundown. We'd likely use up all our day off trying to do this.
>>42112359B-But anon....>STRENGTH TRAINING!
>>42112359Which would be fine for our strength training. We need to get strong, so we aren't complete shit in melee.
>>42112386That's something Rock Lee would say. Are we Rock Lee? Be more chill.
>>42112402Fine.>Groovy, time to get swole.
>>42112399>shit in melee>"we can't punch people good!"That's what explosive notes are for.
>>42112399If we're going more trap and trickery route, wouldn't speed or something be more priority than strength?
>>42112430Not everything can be solved with explosives. A lot of things, yes, but there will be times we're in too close quarters to use them safely.
>>42112461...So your saying we shouldn't explode all the weapons to Tenten's shop?Maaaan.
>>42112179>>42112194>>42112205>>42112220>>42112243An idea crosses your mind. "Hey, why don't we load ourselves up with as many weapon as we can carry? It'd make for good training.""Uhh... feel free to do that." Tenten replies. I'm just going to take some in a cart here. If you want to use this as training though, more power to you."You load yourself up with strips of the weapons wrapped around every conceivable area you can, then carry several belts in your arms. You must be packing over a hundred pounds.>A.Time to run as fast as possible>B.Let's take it slow>C.This was a bad idea>D.Insist Tenten joins you
>>42112448Carrying around heavier equipment for bigger traps would require more strengths?We need to build traps for things like Orochi and the tailed beasts.
>>42112448We have speed equal to sasuke, and the only one faster is Kiba who has 3.5. We have the perfect speed for our team, ATM>>42112489>E. Go at your usual pace, don't rush or take your time.
>>42112448Anon traps should be secondary.We won't have time to prep traps in a mission where we have to infiltrate an area, unless we end up backtracking to lure someone to traps, but people don't always pursue and traps don't always work.Also think about the Chunin exams. What if our opponent won't give us breathing room? We need something else to rely on for direct combat.Which is why we should invest in training up with the thing we got from ten-ten.
>>42112519If we string Kunai, Tags, and Wire beforehand we can set up alot of pretty fucking mean traps in seconds flat.
>>42112489>C.This was a bad idea
>>42112489>B. Just fast enough that we're keeping up with Tenten but not going all out.
>>42112489>B.Let's take it slowIf we pick A we will fall flat on our face.And then get stabbed in every conceivable area.
>>42112489>B.Let's take it slowMatch Tenten's speed, even with the cart she's not going to be going fast.
>>42112461That's what substitution jutsu is for.
Catching up on past 2 thread, see you on the other side
>>42112517>>42112542>>42112546>>42112557https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0k3onazsn_Q&list=PL3AC39BCAE0A97F85&index=12You take off, trying to keep pace with Tenten and her cart. Almost immediately you start to feel the pressure on your legs from carrying so much weight, but you keep pressing on. The hills in particular are rough, whether keeping your balance going down, or struggling your way up.About halfway through town though, you notice a familiar face.You see Rock Lee, albeit with a new haircut and outfit. He seems to be walking around on his hands though the village, and from he look of his hands, he's been at it quite a while.>A.Call out to him>B.Leave him to it>C.Other
>>42112687>B.Leave him to it>Thumbs up
>>42112687>>B.Leave him to itHey Tenten does he do that a lot?
>>42112687>>C.OtherUse this as inspiration! >If I cannot carry this all to Tenten's shop, then I'll push a cart as well as carry them next time!
>>42112687Give the guy a wave, keep going. You've got a job, after all.
>>42112687>C.OtherWave hello to him.
>>42112149I forgot about Tenten.
>>42112292I like your ideas, but I still wonna go full trapmaster
>>42112687>B.Leave him to it
>>42112835Should we invest in puppetry as well?
>>42112849That also sounds like fun. Correct me if I'm wrong though as I haven't seen the show/read the manga in years, but isn't that more of a hidden art thing for the sand village?
>>42112865And one more thing. We already have plenty of power on our team, I want to go full support with traps and "secondary" offense. Try and setup "all according to keikaku" in fights
>>42112890We could only do that by working on our mind some more.
>>42112865I believe it was made originally for entertainment purposes (or coming from a different world all together) so it may not be exclusive to the sand village.
>>42112713>>42112717>>42112746>>42112758You keep looking in Lee's direction until you catch his eye, then give him a wave.He sees you carrying the incredible amount of weapons and smiles, shooting a thumbs-up back at you before continuing his own training.As you go keep heading towards the weapon shop, you decide to ask Tenten. "Does Lee do that a lot?""All the time." she sighs. "He's always giving himself ridiculous training, and then punishing himself with more training when he inevitably fails. That can't be healthy."You eventually reach the weapon shop and unload the weapons. After the immediate wave of relief from unloading the weight, you start feeling sore all over.>A.Alright, round two!>B.I think I'll use a cart too>C.Other
>>42112890That's what I want. We make the openings that our allies can capitalize on on or making our enemies go where we want. Manipulating the fights how we want or need.
>>42112974>B.I think I'll use a cart too
>>42112974>C. "Have you...tried talking to him about it? Over training is more likely to wreck the body than help."
>>42112974>B.I think I'll use a cart tooBut twice the amount Tenten puts in!
>>42112974>B. I think I'll use a cart too.
>>42112974>B.I think I'll use a cart tooYou don't want to strain your muscles to much, else you'll start damaging them.
>>42112974>B.I think I'll use a cart too>C.Other"Yeah, this will take forever if I try to carry them all by hand. I should save the weight training until we're nearly done, take the last few loads that way."
Gotta say im enjoying this, all read up and ready to rock.Im enjoying, less broody dickwad sasuke and im liking the direction of the character, but please lets not go full edgelord with the weaponsAnd for progression, you never know we may run into someone at some point who can aid us with that like jiraiya with naruto
>>42113133I think I want our style to be based on explosions.
>>42113167I like your style.
>>42112974>>B.I think I'll use a cart tooYeah not doing that again. Shoulda listened in the first place.
>>42112982>>42112998>>42113033>>42113040You and Tenten start heading back towards the storehouse."Yeah, I think I'll use a cart too." you admit. "Don't want to strain myself too much, or I'll get hurt.""Good idea." Tenten says. "After all, you're not going to be quite done even once we get all the weapons in the store. We've still got to stock them."The two of you continue your errand, load the carts full of weapons and hauling them back and forth across town. Three hours after you began, there are only enough weapons left in the shed for one cartload. Though two people working together might be able to carry them...>A.If we both loaded ourselves up, we could leave the carts here and not have to bring them back>B.Just take the cart>C.Other
>>42113269>>A.If we both loaded ourselves up, we could leave the carts here and not have to bring them backIf you think you can carry them. Smug as fuck grin.
>>42113167Yeah definitelyHopefully OP bases our uncles fighting style similarly so he can be a mentor later on or something>>42113269>B.Just take the cart
>>42113269>B.Just take the cartListen to Tenten, we've still got to stock all these. Plenty of weight training.
>>42113269>>B.Just take the cart"You go start stocking them, I'll meet up with you."
>>42113269>A.If we both loaded ourselves up, we could leave the carts here and not have to bring them back
>>42113321I don't think our uncle's a ninja.
>>42113332Though we've had our cooldown period from carrying them. If we bothered to train that much, why not go all the way?
>>42113379I wonder what his profession actually is? Hell I wonder what the Karagowa family is mostly renowned for. Are merchants? Doctors? Ramen shop owners?
>>42113494He mentioned a restaurant earlier, so ramen shop owner might not be too far off.
>>42113550Then we should totally go into the business as Cooking Nin! That is actually a thing too!We can bait our clever traps with delicious meals.
>>42113321>>42113332>>42113333You resist the urge to make your suggestion to Tenten, and tell her to go start stocking while you take care of this last cart.Some time later, after bringing the cart back, you return to the weapon shop to find Tenten inside."Alright, Kon." she begins to instruct. "Now we need to stack all of the new stock on the shelves neatly. Shuriken can go straight up there, but we need to wrap the kunai handles first. In fact, let's do that now."Tenten gets all the binding for the kunai handles out and you two start to wrap them before placing them on the shelves.It's a bit strange. You didn't actually expect to be working in complete silence like this.>A.Stay silent>B.Make conversation(Write-in)
>>42113637>"So, how's business been? Great I'm assuming, if you're doing orders this size."
Its always a nice touch to include a relevant picture in most entrances even if its just a character, it helps break up the text walls of people posting and stuffAlso guys if we get the choice which might be likely considering how we got the traps sorted, what you thinking we should be? The scorch (upper right) or explosive (bottom) one seems cool
>>42113637>B.How's stuff with your team going? / What role do you think you'd eventually play in it? / I'm having a tough time figuring out my own role, to be honest.
>>42113685This seems about right for chit chat
>>42113669We are totally Explosion release
>>42113637>B.Make conversation(Write-in)"So, how was your team meeting yesterday? You think you'll do well with them?"
>>42113637>B.Make conversation(Write-in)"So you make larger weapons in-house? Bet that means you get some weird requests, like bows that shoot swords or umbrellas that spray needles?"
>>42113685>>42113702>>42113708>>42113787https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=We60ZX5C99I&list=PL3AC39BCAE0A97F85&index=24You decide to try and make some small talk. An obvious topic comes to mind."So, Tenten." you start. "How did it go with your new team? What's it like?"It looks as if your question destroys something that was restraining Tenten . She whips around and starts releasing a torrent of words."My team?" she starts. "Oh god, you just have no idea. I figured that I'd kind of have to take to take a more leading role, being older and all you know? But they had to go and stick me with two gloomy weirdos that never talk of their own accord. It's like they've never asserted their opinion in their lives. Hinata looks like she's always focusing on something behind you, and that's not just a byakugan joke. Shino, don't get me started on him. It's like one day he just up and went 'Welp, I'm in the clan that uses bugs, I better wear a trenchcoat and sunglasses all the time and make absolutely sure no one could misconstrue me as friendly."The ranting catches you completely off guard, and you have trouble keeping up.>A.Let her keep going>B.Interrupt her>C.Ask her something specific (what?)
>>42113669If there is dust does that mean there is also possibly some other triple element chakras?
>>42114067>"Get them drunk. Maybe then they'll say something you can talk to them about when they sober up."
>>42114067>B. Blush at the mention of Hinata. "D-does she talk about anything special?" Is Hinata an agreed upon waifu? I've always liked her. [/spoiler[
>>42114067>Let her keep going>>42114088Eh i'd imagine so
>>42114148It's the second thread, assmuncher. Keep the waifuing for later
>>42114148Seems a mite to early to unanimously decide such a "volatile" issue
>>42114162 I'd munch Hinata's ass. All night. And make the entire Hyuuga clan witness it with their byakugan.
>>42114067>>A.Let her keep goingHaha yeah I get that. But at least you can keep up with them right?
>>42114067>A.Let her keep goingShe needs to get this off her chest, clearly.>>42114088In theory. We don't see them in the series, though, I guess it's just too rare for three elements to come together in one person like that. There's a five-element chakra, "truth-seeking", that people with plot powers get to use, though.
>>42114067>B.Interrupt her"Okay, so it's an opportunity to help them not be passive followers."
>>42114067>A.Let her keep going
I love how Tenten and our team kinda matches up. Animal/Bug userEye focused userAnd the trap/weapons user!
>>42114067>>A.Let her keep goingLet her vent. Seems like she needs it.>>42114162>>42114181Every Naruto thing I see, everyone always goes nuts for Hinata. What is the appeal?Honestly curious. In canon I just found her unbearably annoying.
>>42114067>A.Let her keep goingI think kakashi's lesson might help here, but I can't find a way to bring it up.
>>42114067>A.Let her keep going>>421141623rd threat, actually.
>>42114319 Can't speak for other anons, but I like shy girls. Plus after the time skip she has huge...tracts of land.
>>42114319Well, she's a shy, cute girl who gives unconditional support and has the potential to be strong but doesn't reach it due to self-esteem issues. Those are a lot of classic waifu traits, it makes sense people would fixate on her. Personally, I'm neutral about Hinata, but I can see why other people would like her.
>>42114157>>42114205>>42114211>>42114213>>42114251>>42114319You figure it's better to just let her rant and get it off her chest for now."... and I know she's supposedly a new Jonin" Tenten continues. "But would it kill her to show some assertiveness? I'm supposed to be one of her students! I shouldn't have to take charge of my teammates because she doesn't want to get them mad at her! Getting these two to answer me with anything more than a nod is like pulling teeth!"She keeps going for quite a while, mentioning every little thing that happened yesterday that bothered her. The two of you keep working the whole time, eventually finishing the kunai and moving on to the shuriken. Tenten keeps up her rant all the while."Man..." she eventually winds down. "Your team sounds way better, Kon. You, Kiba and Sasuke. What I wouldn't give to be on your team.">A.It is pretty great>B.I'm sure they'll come around>C.Stay silent>D.Write-in
>>42114514>>A. It is pretty great
>>42114514>A.It is pretty great>Tell her about what Kakashi put us through.
>>42114514>>A.It is pretty great
>>42114514>B.I'm sure they'll come around
>>42114514>>D.Write-in"Our team is a lot alike if you think about it. We got guys who use creatures in battle, the other guys are apart of a famous clan that are renowned for their eyes and lastly we have us. The normal people who use traps and weapons to even the playing field. We have similar team-sets its just the attitudes behind them."
>>42114514>B.I'm sure they'll come aroundI mean Kiba we knew was going to be a bro, but Sasuke was a little surprising. People have a tendency to get better with time and opportunity.
>>42114514>"Oh please. Kiba's a hothead and Sasuke gets WAY too into poking fun at him. Keeping them from beating eachother into the ground is a full-time job, trust me. At least Akamaru has a cool head...most of the time. That said, we did get to blow up our teacher first day, so that was fun."
>>42114634If nothing else, we need to use that last bit.
>>42114514>>D.Write-inHonestly, your team sounds pretty peaceful. My team has kinda the opposite problem. All socially maladjusted alpha types. Everyone wants to be top dog, all the time. The closest thing we have to a voice of moderation is Akamaru.
>>42114634Kinda sad when Akamaru is the most level-headed of the team....I wonder if we can ever get a doggy. Both Kiba and Kakashi have dogs. We gotta match, since we have a K name as well. Name it Kuma. I had a dog named Bear. Best dog ever. Then he got ran over and it was super sad.
>>42114695But what about Sasuke? Give him hawks like he pulled out of his ass in canon?
>>42114685>>42114695I though Kon was pretty chill, he just really like explosions. A lot.
>>42114736He can have a dog that's one third wolf. Name it White Fang after Kakashi's old man....And after the book.
>>42114810Kon, the nuclear hip guy
So, we're playing Japanese Ash Williams right?
Sorry guys, I was eating. Back now

Kiba and Sasuke are always on each other about everything. Akamaru has a cooler head than them. We're already working with Sasuke better than I expected though, so you just have to give them a chance and they might surprise you."Tenten thinks on your statement. "I guess it was only one day. You're right. I'm sure if I keep working with them, they'll get some initiative to make a great team."As the two of your finish stacking the last of the shuriken, she turns to you. "Though I don't think I have it in me to make quite as good a mediator as you, Kon. Anyway, thanks for the help. I don't think I'll drag you out here anymore, but if you want to help again, we could always use a hand."It's mid-afternoon now.

>>42115498That'd be a good idea too.Too bad we don't know the shadow clone yet. That would make any rush easy-peasy. Hey...what happened to the guy who tricked Naruto into getting the scroll in this universe? Did he try something else with another gullible but less successful student and get kicked out as a result?

"Do you think we could train together? I need some work with my new weapon, and you'd be able to help me out a lot.""Heh." Tenten smirks. "You probably think you're pretty smart asking me, huh? Well, you're right. There isn't a weapon I don't know how to use. I'll tag along."The two of you head to the training grounds at the edge of the village. She pulls out a staff and gets into a fighting pose."Your kyoketsu-shoge." she starts. "Its greatest strength is its ability to disarm your opponent. The basic idea is to be able to wrap the cord around your opponent's weapon, catch it with the hook, and then pull the weapon right out of their hands. You also have the option to try it on their limbs, to get them off balance or occupy one of their arms.">A.Try to disarm her>B.Try to get her off balance>C.Try to catch one of her arms>D.Other

>>42113669Wouldn't Earth and Wind be Sand? Like Gaara?
>>42115940Sand is counted as Magnet Release for some reason. I'm not entirely sure Kishimoto knows how magnetism works.
>>42115940And earth and lighting should be glass, while Water-fire-lightning would be explosion.
>>42116001His gramps had magnet which is why he used iron sand. His dad too, probably.But Gaara used normal sand.
>>42116023I know. Still counts as Magnet Release, according to the attack names. When Naruto briefly gets empowered with all the Tailed Beasts' chakra, the attacks he performs with Shukaku's are prefixed as Magnet Release. So I guess Gaara's using diamagnetic levitation on the sand?
>>42115940There is no reason there could not be multiple kekkei genkai (or however you spell it) for each combination. If each nature were not present in equal amounts within a person, their combination could result in somewhat different effects.
>>42116023Gaara's dad used gold. Explains why the Suna economy was in the shitter all through his tenure.
>>42116129I think there's a throwaway line where he says he actually used his powers to mine for gold and that was the only thing keeping them afloat.
>>42116129>>42116201....But gold isn't magnetic.
>>42116081Since Wind-Earth-Fire makes dust, I'm gonna go ahead and call Earth-Wind Sand.Because it just makes sense. What else would you get from Earth-Wind Tornado?...Wait. Shit, that's better. Alright, calling Earth-Wind Tornado Release.>>42116100Each combination only results in one Kek, and only when perfectly balanced. Otherwise it doesn't express. Reason why Sakura, who was Earth and water matured, didn't get Wood Release.At a guess, Magnet release was developed with exposure to Shukaku. Which is why Gaara's is Magneto levels.>>42116129Topkek.
>>42116254>Each combination only results in one Kek, and only when perfectly balanced. Otherwise it doesn't express.Says who?
>>42116201Wait. You're telling me there was a ninja who actually used his bullshit magic powers constructively to help his country rather than just punching a dude really hard in the face?Suspension of disbelief gone.>>42116228Bullshit ninja magic cares nothing for your logic.
>>42112141>A tripping weapon, a weapon with reachJumonji Yari (a polearm wit a head shaped like pic related) can do both, and can even disarm swordsmen if we get really good at catching them in the crosspiece.
>>42116228Well, not ferromagnetic, but it can be affected by diamagnetism. So it sort of makes sense. It's still kind of bullshit, though.
>>42116288Should we try dual wielding those?
>>42116298We should make it so its double ended and then we can take them apart to dual wield.
>>42116298We're not nearly hotblooded enough to be Sanada Yukimura, though.
>>42112525So when are we gonna start predicting peoples next lines?
So I haven't read previous thread as noone posted links to them but it looks like you guys are thinking of falling into horrible trap of not specializing as Konoha ninjaUnless you are going to become missing nin or something
>>42116426We're not sure what we're good at yet, though rushing an opponent and planting a bunch of explosion seals in a hit-and-run was suggested. Also, mines of all sorts.
>>42116282canon?For example, Ice Release:naruto.wikia.com/wiki/Ice_ReleaseNotice that the only people with this Kek were the Yuki.Other people could make ice, but they were the only ones counted to have the release.
>>42113167If we ever lose an eye, we totally need to take it as an opportunity to store a bomb in the empty socket.
>>42116447The other people who could use ice were just in one of the movies, which are non-canon except for Naruto: The Last. And even then they appeared to not be able to create ice, just move it around. They couldn't freeze things, though given that they had an arctic climate in their country they didn't really need to.
>>42116466I have better ideaMake small bijuudamas in it instead
>>42116466Hell yeah Nice.
>>42116447I mean where is it stated that kekkei genkai can only come about where there is a perfect 1:1 ratio. I understand that it requires a specific ratio, and that this generally can only come about genetically, but where are you getting that it could only be 1:1, ruling out the possibility of multiple kekkei genkai extending from the same basic natures?
>>42115869>>42115925>>42115957You pull out your kyoketsu-shoge and swing it around a bit to get a feel for the weight. You have plenty of practice with thrown weapons, but a weapon you have to control after it's thrown is new to you. You start tossing the weapon out a few times as practice, intending to have it deflected by Tenten's staff. After a few throws, you think you have it down alright."What's with those half-assed tosses?" Tenten asks. "Come at me like you mean it!"Right afterwards, you decide to put your plan into action. You dash to the side to get a better angle, then toss the weapon at Tenten's leg. It wraps around just as you intended, and you pull towards yourself as it hooks."Woah-" Tenten is surprised, but just for a moment. Instead of fighting to keep balanced, she goes along with the cord and closes the distance between you in a flash. She swings her staff and knocks you on your back before you can react."Good, that's the idea, Kon." she offers some slight praise. "But you're going to want to be careful of opponents that aren't afraid to get right up on you. You're not exactly strong enough to drag them around right now. You might want to stick to using it on opponents that are facing the opposite direction, for now at least.">A.Thanks for the tip>B.Let's try again>C.Let's try something else>D.Go home>E.Other
>>42116358With our Intelligence, it'll be a while.
>>42116466No, that's stupid. Put a gun in instead.An explosion only gets us one shot, while napalm rounds get us several.
>>42116426Well, we've got ideas, we just haven't implemented them yet given that we've been a genin for only a day. The majority seem to be leaning towards a battlefield control role, though.
>>42116519>Put a gun in instead.Nah ah ah~That's forbidden here.
>>42116503>>A.Thanks for the tip>>B.Let's try again
>>42116503>A.Thanks for the tip>B.Let's try again
>>42116503>C.Let's try something elseChakra controlIf it's not close to perfect you aren't getting out of chuninIt also helps with learning new techniques
>>42116501It doesn't have to be 1:1. I imagine it's probably weird fractions of power.That said, you don't /get/ multiple releases with the same basic nature. Just different levels of skill/power of the same release.
>>42116549>>42116553Well, explosive-driven ones, at least. We can have rapid-firing dart launchers powered by chakra, those canonically exist. I don't think we could fit one into an eye socket, though. Then again, you probably couldn't fit a normal firearm in there, either.
>>42116571Supportin'Walk up some trees!
>>42116604So, like a Chinese Rocket Launcher?
>>42116604If we get close to some specific people we could pull of Rinnegan and shoot missiles from here
>>42116298No. We're not a samurai. And we don't have an OYAKATA-SAMA to get in name shout offs with.
>>42116553Sorry.ensealed Kunai launcher.
>>42116519>a gunTe fuck is a "gun", anon?No seriously, firearms tech is nonexistant in this setting.
Just started catching up, where are we compared to the canon timeline, and what are the teams like if we're with Sauce and Kiba?
>>42116604Chakra powered mini-senbon launcher?
>>42116717We could try for fireworks instead.
Guns are for faggotsCannons are betterhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x1fCw44Svas
>>42116738We're two days into the series, passed Kakashi's test yesterday and have the day off today since we finished early. As for the teams, Tenten is with Hinata and Shino instead of Kiba on Team 8, Team 10 is the same as in canon, and Team 6 is Sakura, Lee and Sai.
>>42116584I'm sorry I'm not making myself very clearIs it not possible that there could be two different earth/wind (or whatever) kekkei genkai releases, one accessible by people who have a 1:2 ratio and different one accessible by people who happen to have 2:1?
>>42116604Honestly, I'd rather it just be a small ball of rolled up explosive notes to intimidate the flying fuck out of our enemies if we ever get in a bad situation. Never use it, obviously, but it's cool for background and/or when we get our name in a bingo book.
>>42116485Okay?Kind of missing the point there. I was trying to say each mixture will only get you a single release rather than multiple possible releases.
>>42116860How did Team Gai get sorted with kids a year younger than them?
>>42116927Hokage was hard on everybody, only passed the valedictorian (Neji)
>>42116927They got younger by yearWhat I would love to know is why is Kiba in ROOT instead of Sai
>>42116927Only the best student in the year graduated last year
>>42116550>>42116564>>42116566>>42116713https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qv7btgqaAGc&index=13&list=PL3AC39BCAE0A97F85"Thanks for the tip, Tenten." you tell her as she helps you up. "Let's try again."You and Tenten continue your spar aginst each other for quite a while, both of you ending up knocked down more than a few times. By the time the sun is setting, you're both exhausted."You're not doing bad, Kon." says Tenten as you both put away your weapons. "You're really quick on your feet. I didn't get any time to rest at all."It's nearly curfew, so you both head home. You arrive to find your Uncle with dinner ready on the table."Welcome back." he says. "Did you enjoy your day off?">A.It wasn't really a day off>B.I had a good time>C.Just eat>D.Ask about (what?)>E.Other
>>42116967>>B.I had a good time
>>42116967>A.It wasn't really a day offDespite that,>B.I had a good time
>>42116967>B.I had a good time>D.What do you serve at the restaurant again?
>>42116889From trawling the wiki? No.You /can/ get increasingly esoteric techniques. From water release you can get a mist technique-line, a shaped water line, a bubble line, a modified liquid (acid, glue) line, etc.But, unless you're switching out elements, Water-Wind will always get you Ice.
>>42116967>>B.I had a good timeHow was your day uncle?
I wonder if we could be bi?
>>42117038Maybe if we go to the Land of Waves.
>>42117067Anything goes in the land of the flow
>>42116967>B.I had a good timeFun times were had.
So I have important questionHow are we going to make Sasuke like Kiba more but still like us enough that he won't ditch us after getting Edgy Eyes blind edition?
>>42117015"I managed to find some rare, Grass-country, snake leaf tea."
>>42117119Either this or Jackie Chan Adventures
>>42117119Best uncle. RIP Mako!
>>42117114By being friends with Sauce. Don't give a shit about Kiba, honestly. He can die in a ditch.
>>42117005I depends whether you're using them in combination or just simultaeneously.For example, using water and wind merged gets ice, but just using water alongside wind could get a rainstorm. Or foam.
>>42117149That's not very nice!
>>42117134Either way, we're going to be drinking excessive amounts of tea.>>42117149>Don't give a shit about KibaIs that just you, or is he a dick now?
>>42117114It's possible he might not do that at all. In this timeline his family is still alive. So he has nothing against Itachi except a desire to prove himself by outdoing him, and Orochimaru probably wouldn't go after him if he wanted a set of Sharingan eyes with easier targets available. So Sasuke should be fine, relatively low risk of him going crazy on us.
>>42117168>Is that just you, or is he a dick now?I just don't like Kiba.
>>42117168You forgot mung bean soup! Must Uncle do everything?
>>42117169He's Uchiha manThey are all crazyAlso we should specialize in water techniquesBy specialize I mean "Water dragon in single handseal in middle of desert" specialize
>>42117244Does water explode?
>>42117264If it's microwaved distilled water and has something dropped i it, yes.
>>42117264The Second Mizukage actually has a really cool technique based around steam explosions. So there's precedent for exploding water techniques.
>>42116983>>42116986>>42116997>>42117015>>42117033>>42117093"I had a good time." you tell your uncle as you sit down and begin eating. "I helped Tenten with her parent's shop, and then we got some pretty good training in afterwards."Your uncle looks up from his food. "You spent the day with a girl? You're a much earlier bloomer than your mother, that's for sure! Haha! I don't think she talked to a man alone until she was twenty five!"Your uncle continues to laugh nostalgically.>A.Tell him about something else (what?)>B.Ask him about something (what?)>C.Eat in silence
>>42117264Two parts Hydrogen, One part OxygenOf course it does!
>>42117300>B.Ask him about something (what?)Mom is general.
>>42117287Regular explosives are much easier/practical
>>42117300>B.Ask him about something (what?)"What was Mom like?"
>>42117328But aren't as specialYou need to distinguish yourself if you want to get into big leaguesAnd it's easier to do if you have something special about yourselfIt also doesn't stop us from placing explosives notes in out waterAnd if you want to go with explosive notes we should focus on paper instead
Time for exposition on stuff we know about already!
>>42117300>B.Ask him about something (what?)Ask about the clan Dad is from.
>>42117300>B.Ask him about something (what?)"She didn't make you chaperone her dates with Dad, did she?"
>>42117300>>42117441Seconding because I find that image hilarious.
>>42117159That would just be using two techniques together. Or controlled use of Water Release. In which case foam falls under the bubble-line. A rainstorm is, again, a high powered water technique. Probably a strong mist-variant.Look, dude, Ice (in particular) is noted for making ice wholesale rather than manipulating what's already there. If this stuff isn't coming out "premixed" it isn't a Kek.Just read the wiki dude.
>>42117300>>42117441Oh god yes
>>42117264Colonel Roy Mustang has a trick for precisely that. What you do is, you separate the Hydrogen atoms from the Oxygen atoms, creating a volatile gas and a concentrated oxidizer respectively. Add just one spark, and *BOOM*.
>>42117425>focus on paper insteadI wonder how Konan became made of paper. her ultimate attack just so happened to be one continuous five minute explosion using millions of explosive tags she could control. If we could learn it we should
I vote for trying to marry Black ZetsuAs he's literally will of Kaguya it could technically count as marrying herAnd it gives us bigger chances of survival than any alternative thanks to the fact that unless Akatsuki does not exist everything is going straight into shitterUnless we are one of transmigrants but I doubt it
>>42117441I don't think our mom was Ninja Joyce Brown, anon.
>>42117584Better idea.Tell Orochimaru that Black Zetsu is immortal.Let the rest sort itself out.
>>42117584We court Kaguya via Black Zetsu, if there isn't already a romantic interest by then.If we end up going to RtN-verse, I say Ino all the way.
>>42117620But Oro is already immortal
>>42117644Sorta, but he's always looking for a better immortality.
>>42117664Not reallyHe just wants better bodiesIf Kimimaro was not sick Oro could probably solo Sarutobi
>>42117323>>42117393>>42117431>>42117441>>42117458"What was Mom like?" you decide to ask. "She didn't make you chaperon her dates with Dad, did she?"Your uncle busts out laughing even harder. "No, no." he eventually manages to say."She did stick to me like glue when she was younger, though." he explains. "Our parents died when she was very young, so I was all she had. Our family never had any ninjas, but she apparently had some potential with chakra, so they let her into the academy. I worked hard to support her, so she could become something great, you know. She was still incredibly shy, though. Any time she could, she would be spending her time with me. And if it wasn't me, she was always sticking to her instructors. She didn't have many friends. She came around eventually, though.">A.Ask something else>B.Say something>C.Other
>>42117700What about Dad?None of that Fourth Hokage stuff where we have to guess which dead ninja was our father.
>>42117700>A.Ask something else"What about my father?"Was he the pilot of a spice freighter during the Ninja Wars?
>>42117700>C.OtherLet him finish talking
>>42117733>>42117743"What about my father?" you ask. You've honestly never heard more than a casual mention of him."About that..." your uncle goes on. "I'm afraid I only met him a couple of times. I didn't know him very well. He and your mother hit it off real quick after they met. It was scarcely over a year between then and you being born. All I really knew about him was that he was a ninja from some other village. Apparently he had it rough, since his clan was known for some kekky gekky bloodline thing, and he didn't have it. He must not have been getting any respect back home, cause he up and moved here and took your mother's name real quick. Didn't seem like a bad guy, though.">A.Ask something else>B.Say something>C.Go to bed
>>42117989Thanks for watching out for me Uncle. What was his old last name?
>>42117989>B.Say something"Wait. Your saying I may have inherited a kekkei genkai from my father's line? Is there any place in Konoha I can find out more? Transfer records, or their files?
>>42117989"Wait, which clan was he? Maybe I've got it too. That stuff's inherited, you know."
>>42118016If it's Kaguya I will be happy>Inb4 ŌtsutsukiBy the way are we guy or girl?
>>42117989Oh boy, we've got a recessive bloodline.
>>42117989It's HyuugaBut in truth it's either Uzumaki or some filler or OC clan
>>42118016>>42118058>>42118068Kekkei genkai. The term's mention immediately struck your curiosity. "Wait, uncle. Do you know which clan he was from?""Sorry, Kon." he apologizes. "Afraid I don't. Never mentioned it to me. I suppose you could ask around for the files or some such. I don't know how any of that ninja business works, myself.">A.Ask something else>B.Go to bed>C.Other
>>42118231"What was his first name, then?"
>>42118203Ew. I don't want to be a filthy irreverent Hyuuga
>>42118231>B.Go to bed"I'll ask Kakashi-sensei about it, then. Thanks for telling me this, Uncle. I think I'm going to head to sleep, now, it's a big day tomorrow."
>>42118254Hey!If we go to moon and get lucky we can probably get Tenseigan!It would put us at little lover position than Naruto and Sasuke from epilogue if we get some training with it
>>42118231>B.Go to bed"Got a big day tomorrow!"
>>42118231When/how did he die? If we get a first name and a death date, we should be able to ask Kakashi about where they keep files.Hell, depending on where they are, we could run into the Hokage.
>>42118231>"Uncle, this is very important. I need to know everything you can tell me about dad. This might end up saving my life some day."
>>42118231>B.Go to bed>C.OtherThank him for dinner and go to sleep.
>>42118324I believe it was mentioned that both our parents died when the Nine-Tails got loose. They were part of the defending force, got killed holding off its advance until..whatever happened in this timeline to deal with it, given that Naruto doesn't appear to exist to be its host. At least, we hope he doesn't exist. If he does, the lack of his presence implies a number of very bad possibilities.

>>42118293>>42118317>>42118348You help your uncle clean up the kitchen."Thanks for everything, Uncle." you tell him.He gives you a smile. "Anytime, Kon. Now get to bed. You've got a big day tomorrow."You follow your uncle's advice and head upstairs. You make sure all your equipment is laid out, as you are supposed to be up bright and early for your first mission tomorrow. Not that you expect Kakashi Sensei to be on time.Despite your anxiousness, you're able to fall asleep fairly quickly. The night before your first mission is graced with a peaceful, uninterrupted sleep.>End of Chapter 3Will run again tomorrow. Check the twitter @LazeQMAlso, when are people on? I have several days where I'm not doing anything, and I want to go ahead and run for a long-ass time, but I don't know when there are enough people to participate.Anyway, ask any questions you feel like, I'll be around for a while
>>42118645>Also, when are people on?I'm on the East Coast and I've got time most every day.
>>42118645Any time after noon on the weekends (EST).On weekdays any time after 6 (EST).
>>42118645I'm on around the times this runs, so it works out perfectly for me. Anyways, thanks for running. See you tomorrow, Laze.
>>42118645Is Kon's dad from some OC clan or is he from an established group?
>>42118645After Two on the east coast.
>>42118645I am usually around whenever.
>>42118734Let's just say I want to keep my options open
>>42118819You gonna have it show up at a tense & opportune moment?If so, why not have a list of ideas in a table and then roll to see what we get?
>>42118848Getting a bit ahead of ourselves, aren't we?There's still no guarantee that you guys inherited anything.My intention was to let the notion sit and float in the back of your minds
>>42118899>My intention was to let the notion sit and float in the back of your mindsYou tease.I love it.
>>42118899Was Tobirama right about Uchiha?
>>42118899We can ask Kakashi to look into this, right? Say that Uncle can't remember our father's name particularly well, but give him our mother's name?
>>42118899You ever watch the Rock Lee and his Ninja Pals show?
>>42118940Well he did nothing wrong>>42118972You'll find out what you can for now, but I'll tell you straight up, it's not much. That plot thread will be left hanging for a while.>>42119074No, I've only seen a handful of the manga pages.
>>42119126Ah, there's a lot of Ten-ten in it, if you need more to base your writing on.
>>42119126Who is the current hokage?cause graduating just one student is really harsh, he sounds like an ass
>>42119144Well, I'll check it out. I was just working off of what we got from the anime/manga proper, and as we're all aware, that's not much. She won't be showing up again for a while anyway.
>>42119176Actually that is a good question, who are the hokages? Have many has the leaf village had?
>>42119176You'll find out who the Fifth is tomorrow.>>42119198This alternate universe thing will make a whole lot of sense to you guys in retrospect. All the differences will pretty much be able to be traced to a single event. Everything before that point is exactly the same as in canon.
>>42119197How hard will it be to marry Kaguya's will?
>>42119309Is it possible for single person to convert someone horribly set in his ways?Is it possible for two genins to defeat Kaguya?Is it possible to for five nations to ally?Is it possible to bring peace without becoming monster?
>>42119347>Can love bloom on the battlefield?
>>42119388But Anon, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IGVZOLV9SPo
>>42119347Nigga I don't think you understand the magnitude of your implication
>>42119241i have a feeling its itachi
>>42119501I have a feeling that Orochimaru is good and Jiraiya is bad and Tsunade died
>>42119501nb4 Madara became hookage.
>>42119457But I doYou are saying that bringing light to Kaguya is impossibleI asked you if some small things are possible
>>42119501It's already been mentioned that Itachi is considered a candidate for the next Hokage. He isn't one right now.
>>42119583You just mentioned a bunch of things that happened in the series"Marrying Kaguya's will" is on a whole other level of absurd from those
>>42119621Because befriending Kyuubi is sensible thing to do
>>42119621Doing the absurd, is that not what Quests are for?Also, have you decided where Naruto is in this setting?
>>42119700He- Is- the- Ro- Bot, He- Is- the- Ro- Bot
>>42119689At least that had precedent with Bee, it just wasn't handled very well. Like most of the series.>>42119700Yes.
>>42119835fuck off, I don't want to be spoiled so soon
>>42119873Trust me, I won't. I love keeping shit secret for as long as possible.
>>42119922not a teasing type eh?Cant wait for the next thread.Loving yours and Mini's quest btw
>>42119997I love watching people piece things together slowly. I had my buddy play 999 and tell me his thoughts as he played.Also thanks.
>>42120044Will we be going to the Land of Waves, or do you have other plans?
>>42120100You will. OC adventure shit probably won't show up until later, likely replacing filler hell.
>>42120164Sweet. Low-Yield explosives on the bridge is go then?
>>42120188Try not to fuck up too hard
>>42120232It's a metal bridge. Put some razor wire in the tight spaces and shit no stronger than frag grenades in places more open, and it'll be fine.
>>42120283The thing I don't like about being a trap master is that we're about fucked in the case of an ambush.Traps necessitate that we have time to set them up, that we know the land.We either need to have some stronger focus for that contingency or some quick way of setting them up.
>>42120559Kunai have loops at the base of the wrapping. Thread some wire, put some tags on said wire, and get very good at estimating distances. Two seconds to set up tops.
>>42120559Put some ready to use smokebombWhen ambushed, yell "ALOHA SNACKBAR" then smoke em
>>42120602I still feel limited until we learn some seals.
>>42120735Of course we'll learn some seals. And if we don't start making our own custom explosives at some point I will be disappointed.
