>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. Your character is defined by your choices, so write-ins are always encouraged. And remember to have fun!>Quest Info:http://pastebin.com/H9RcuG3S
DattebayoLet's rock Laze-senpai!
After the events on the bridge, Kakashi Sensei takes it upon himself to keep an eye on Haku. He tells you that for Haku's sake, it's better if he comes to the village where he can get some help. He spends a lot of time talking with Haku, trying to convince him to accompany you."You know..." you hear Kakashi Sensei tell him. "Sasuke's clan, the Uchiha, find meaning in their kekkei genkai. They serve as the village's police force, respected and looked up to by everyone. They surely live lives filled with purpose."Eventually Haku relents and decides that having nowhere to go, he loses nothing by accompanying you.Your Sensei also takes the time to reprimand you. "Killing Gato wasn't in the mission profile." he scolds. "I know it couldn't be helped this time, but try to avoid that in the future. The Leaf's reputation may be damaged, and as shinobi of the Leaf we need to avoid that whenever possible."On the eve of the bridge's completion, your team and Haku are on a cliff overlooking the village and the bridge. Kakashi Sensei decided to let Haku get some closure by making a grave here for Zabuza. After everyone pays their respects, Kakashi sets Zabuza's sword in the ground behind the grave."What do you think, Haku?" he asks. "Would this make a good headstone?"Haku walks over and lays his hand on the sword. He's quiet for a long while before speaking."I think this sword is like me." he says. "It wants to be useful to someone.">A.It has use right here>B.I know someone who can use it>C.You should keep it, Haku>D.Other
>>42240448>C.You should keep it, HakuWow, just turned on my computer and checked twitter right when you posted this.
>>42240481Oh god no.... I had forgotten that existed, and know you come a ruin my blissful innocence.
>>42240448>C Haku with a giant sword. Yes please.
>>42240448>C.You should keep it, HakuDon't really think anyone in our team is suited to it.
>>42240448>D. Keep silent, why do we always have to talk? See what your teammates have to say.
>>42240521I am already imaging Haku after the two year skip where he has maned up and is wielding the sword.
>>42240448>B.I know someone who can use itC'mon, Tenten would love it!
>>42240501You mean "ignorance"?
>>42240562We talk because we have too. If we don't talk we will lose relevance and may fade into nothing.
>>42240448>C.You should keep it, Haku
>>42240589I really meant "now" instead of "know" but might go with that as well.
>>42240448>>C.You should keep it, Haku>>42240569nah,it's better with haku
>>42240448>C.You should keep it, HakuEven if he doesn't use it himself (it's not really suited to his style, after all), he might want to give it to someone else who he finds meaning with.
>>42240448>B.>C. You COULD keep it, Haku.
>>42240592I'd much rather have our teammates do things and be proactive.
>>42240448>>C.You should keep it, HakuOr if he doesn't want it for himself offer to hold on to it until we find somebody else that seems like a good fit. Or just ask to take it for ourselves
>>42240613But then you risk the possibility of someone like Sausage becoming the main character. We can't allow that!
On a side note i finally get to one of these earlybtw QM when exacly do you quest?
>>42240670Sasuke, phone is too hungry right now.
>>42240681Usually an hour and a half from now
>>42240681Usually 6:00 - 6:30 EDT, he started early today.
>>42240666keeping it for someone else good enough is cool if haku doesnt want it but our str is shite so we can't really use ourselves
>>42240670I thought Sasuke was pretty cool in the old Naruto anime, could be fun, and this one seems more mellow.
>>42240670Sausage already is the main character, He already has the Sharingan and soon he'll also learn Chorizo from Kakashi.
>>42240724Yeah, but then you have Kiba who has the Naruto-like spunk and that would make us the Sakura equivalent. We do not want to be the Sakura of this quest.
>>42240742I'm fine with that so long as we get to help him not die or go down dark paths.
>>42240724this version of sausage is cool guy who doesnt have a muderbone for itachi cuz the uchiha are still alive so he's just quiet and a bit of a pridefull dopenothing like shippuden bitch sousage
>>42240723Fair enough. But think of our gains if we constantly swung around a sword that size!
I'm just glad swords were a game changer.We should spend time sparring with Sasuke. Test out his sharingan.
>>42240756We are not Sakura, and Kiba is not Naruto. Hell, Sasuke isn't Sasuke neither.
>>42240772He's unlikely to, in this timeline. His family is alive, which means he has no angst. And with there being plenty of other Uchiha to steal eyes from Orochimaru would probably target someone else than the clan head's son. So Sasuke should remain fairly chill, barring Madara's extremely circuitous plan interfering. But who knows how that's changed in this timeline?
>>42240792actually thats pretty smart if we train around with it while on down time from missionscould gain 1.0 or 1.5 if we dedicate ourselves enough with it
>>42240812This train is moving on! You have two choices, you can join us on train or you stand on the tracks.
>>42240837maybe madara will be the cool guy and naruto will be the new villain or some shit i dunno
>>42240840Who needs big swords for strength training? For training, you just need to do something over and over again until you're sort of good at it. We could go out and buy weights if we really wished, though I don't know if we'd really use them when we spend our time hanging out with friends and doing chores.
>>42240904Those heavy weights Rock Lee wears would be a good start.Kakashi may not agree...
>>42240886What if Kakashi is the villian?
>>42240852Just because we're not in the spotlight doesn't mean we're getting railroaded. Hell, being in the spotlight seems as though we'd be obligated to do some dicey stuff, like getting into those mirrors with Kiba and Sasuke. Instead, what we did was help them win against Haku, because that's the kind of person we are.
>mfw I made it again but even earlier this time>C.You should keep it, Haku
>>42240904you're right but think of it this way: with zabuza's sword(don't know the name) with can both increase str and our use with melee weaps and thats pretty good considering our current buildcuz let's be honest there's gonna be that one time when one dude is gonna be able to dodge or see or boom-booms and we'll need some form defence while desenganging
>>42240929I don't think we'd be able to get up off the ground. We don't regularly practice Taijutsu on trees yet, I think?
>>42240958And we got a cool cap to really accentuate our headband.
>>42240940HERESY, NO, DOUBLE HERESY!Wait wrong franchise. Kakashi a best teacher, bad anon don't slander the poor man.
>>42240977I'd rather have two smaller swords rather than one big one to take advantage of our speed. Though, maybe one sword would be best for Ninjutsu purposes. Although, our grappling-dagger has been kicking ass lately.
>>42240991what if we use our village medal thingy into a badit mask style cover with the cap covering forehead/above?we can cover our face save for our eyes, would be pretty sweet
>>42240999>Kakashi a best teacher, bad anon don't slander the poor man.>not "don't slander the porn man"
>>42241031Our nose will break.
>>42241008that's true but im just saying to use it as a form of training str while getting a little better with a sword cuz i thing we're better of with small arms in one hand while an off handed variation on the other
Sorry guys, had to run an errand, back now
>>42241067It's better to train with two smaller swords for our build, like swordsmen did to train their offhands to do useful things during a fight.
>>42241043oh yeah...[/s]We could put the metal part on the cap tho[s]
>>42241031Just get a goddamm proper mask, with actual filtering and such then.
>>42241125That is a good idea
>>42241125Make it a fox mask. Or a mask of the shinigami.
>>42241008I'd rather some kid of, I dont know, longer weapon.A whip, or lash maybe. Also something that hasnt really already been taken in canonKusari-gama maybe.
>>42241170>Make it a fox mask.No.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tI55p41FYik&index=3&list=PL3AC39BCAE0A97F85"You should keep it, Haku." you tell him.Haku looks at the sword. "I do not think I should find much use for it. I do not know if I ever even want to fight again."He picks the sword out of the ground. "But I will take it if you say. Perhaps I may find someone in need of it."The next morning you all gather at the bridge, ready to set off.The entire village is also there."Thank you for everything." Tazuna says. "I know it's not much, but I know you all wanted something special for doing this mission. So, I'm letting you all name the bridge! How about that, huh?">A.You have an idea (Write-in)>B.Let someone else do it
>>42241165Then we could do toxin bombsDr. Thraxx anytime soon?
>>42241247>A.You have an idea (Write-in)Suggest whatever Kon's mother's name was.(If it was named, then I forget.)But ask what the others think we should name it, too.
>>42241247>>A.You have an idea (Write-in)How about the "Road to Glory"i dunno i'm kinda drunk
>>42241247Name it after the freaky fish guy.
>>42241247>A.You have an idea (Write-in)"Kaiza."
>>42241307Kaiza bridge sounds good enough
>>42241247>A.You have an idea (Write-in)Name it after Inari's father, perhaps? That seems like it would be a nice symbolic gesture.
>>42241307i don't that's his real name dude
>>42241247>Name it after that one kid's dad who died
>>42241247Changing my vote from >>42241274to >>42241324
>>42241247You know I never saw the point of Gato not wanting the bridge to be built.If he let them build it,he could either put a toll on it or blow it up.... just saying.
>>42241324I also vote for this
>>42241247So...how do watercraft move through the channel now?
>>42241324Appropriate. We killed for the village, but Kaiza died for it. He's the one who ought to be remembered.
>>42241472Nah, we have a winning smile, y'know?
>>42241473Yeah, it doesn't really look like there's enough room between the support pillars for anything other than very small craft. That's going to be a problem, I think.
>>42241493Yah, but we also be ninja manjust cuz noone is doing it does'nt mean we should'nt
>>42241307>>42241317>>42241320>>42241324>>42241336>>42241339An idea comes to you."What about the Kaiza Bridge?" you ask."The Kaiza Bridge." Tazuna repeats. You can see tears welling up in his eyes. Inari looks about ready to bawl. "That's a fine name. Thank you. Come back and see us any time."You part ways and head across the bridge, and back to the Village Hidden in the Leaves.As you finally approach the gates, you see someone waiting there."Ah, he must be here already." Kakashi says. "I sent word to the Hokage about Haku, and he's having someone meet us here."As you reach the gates, the man comes to greet you."Nice to meet you." he says. "My name is Inoichi Yamanaka. I'm Ino's father.""You're Haku, right?" he looks towards the boy. "The Hokage assigned me to get you settled in here, find you a place. Think of me as your therapist, I can help you talk out anything you want."Eventually everyone heads their separate ways, and you go home, anxious to be back after the long mission.The next week or so is back to standard D rank missions, but you find the time to...>Chose two activities>A.Train (specify)>B.Spend time with (specify)
>>42241583A and Bgather Kiba and Sausage and do physical trainingGit gud with quality time with the team
>>42241583>B.Spend time with (specify)Uncle. The mission reminded us of the importance of family, we want to make sure he knows we appreciate him.
>>42241583>A.Train (specify)Snag a piece of chakra paper and figure out our elemental affinity, start working out how to use it.>B.Spend time with (specify)Tenten and her team, and not just for training. She's the only real friend we've got that's not actually one of our teammates.
>>42241583>>A.Train (specify)Speed>>A.Train (specify)SpeedFuck it go as fast as Minato
>>42241583>A.Train (specify)Physical training>B. Spend timeOur Uncle.
>>42241583Sword training with Sasuke.Obsess about what's under Kakashi's mask.
>>42241583>>A.Train (Taijutsu)>>B.Spend time with (Haku)Maybe get Haku to help us with our speed and accuracy if he's up to it.
>>42241583>A. Train Hand Seals (Specifically explosive shit)>B. Spend time with Haku (Help him acclimate)
>>42241583>A. Train speed>B. Hang out with Tenten
>>42241583>A. Train (Intelligence)>B. Spend time with KibaGotta train our traps and tactics.
Time to train Konohamaru and his team in explosions.
>>42241583>A.Train (specify)Jutsu Trap synergy. Theres got to be some way to make them work together.I wonder if theres some way to make a close range flashbang with chakra...
>>42241728We have no idea who that is, though. We have never met Konohamaru, and given that Jiraiya is the current Hokage, we very well never may.
>>42241583>>42241654Training sword shit with Sasuke, but instead talking to him about Kakashi's Sharingan.
pls for the love of god can we try and learn some jutsu
>>42241736There is. One of the Raikage's bodyguards uses ninjutsu like that. Don't know if there are any similar jutsu in Konoha's arsenal, but it's possible.
>>42241736You mean one of those smokebomb things?
>>42241583>A. Train (Ninjutsu)>A. Train (Hand Seals)
>>42240787>quiet and a bit of a pridefull dopeOh god, the poor guys brain is going to have to reboot whenever either Sakura or Ino works up the guts to tell him they want the d.
>>42241583>A.Train (Ninjutsu)>A. Train (Hand Seals)
>>42241763Apparently the answer is no. It's like people are willfully ignoring the need for it.
>>42241822Suggest something cool, bitch
>>42241822Seriously, guys, we already know how to do traps, we're mediocre to terrible at everything else.
>>42241801Oh, I dunno. Maybe do that thing someone suggested earlier where we figure out our elemental affinity, and at least start working on some techniques we'd be good at.
Learn a jutsu in which the area around us is filled with wires and explosive tags, but thanks to chakra fuckery they're all hidden from sight in a similar manner to the shadow shuriken jutsu.
>>42241861I'm not sure if we're intelligent enough to know about that yet.
>>42241861>>42241880I'm also not sure if our hand seals are good enough for any of that!
>>42241874GENIN. We need to learn how to walk before we can run.And before someone demands again that I "come up with an actual suggestion", I already did. >>42241632
>>42241583ACTUAL THERAPY>ACTUAL THERAPY>IN NARUTO>IN ANYTHING EVERHoly shit folks, we've just gotten a front row seat to history in the making.
>>42241880We've brought it up with Kakashi, he says we shouldn't risk it yet. Though that was before we showed him how awesome our chakra control was, maybe he'll be more willing now. Still need to work on our hand seals and stamina before we learn actual jutsu, but he might not consider it too risky for us to learn basic manipulation techniques like "cut this leaf apart with your mind". Probably not going to let us move to "punch this river in half" for a while, though.
>>42241209>A whip, or lash maybeChain-mine, anon.A long metal chain with a weighted end and a detachable hilt, covered in hooks and barbs so it can better catch and bind weapons and limbs, with a bunch of explosive tags down the length of it.Also at least one chain with no tags, for when and if explosions aren't appropriate.
>>42241801Look up temporary paralysis technique on the naruto wikionly a D rank technique so we should be able to learn it
>>42241880We already fucking asked about doing that in a previous thread, so yes. We do know about it.>>42241885We have a high ninjutsu stat. If we need to work on hand signals to make use of our nature, then we can train that too. But we need to at least start the process, and learning what our nature is gives us a point to do that.
>>42241917I still don't think we should ditch the Kyoketsu-shoge so quickly. Especially once we get really good with it.
>>42241912We're still a loose cannon metaphorically in his eye.
>>42241903>ACTUAL THERAPY>FROM A YAMANAKA>IMPLYING IT ISN'T MIND CONTROL/BREAK/METAL BREAKwe will miss you haku
>>42241944Yeah, that thing is awesome.>>42241939But do we know how to figure it out?
>>42241912Hand signs can be trained, or ignored if we can get hold of a chakra blade. It's absolutely not an issue.
Guys, we need to train our Intelligence so we can outsmart people.
>>42241963We don't know unless we try, and put in actual effort into learning.Take some fucking initiative, anon.
>>42241967Hand signs are one of our lowest stats that we're actually gonna use right now. We're probably not gonna use genjutsu for a while, but we still need to train some of our weakest skills, rather than our strongest, seeing as we're below average in most things.
>TrainWork on making a chain that is actually a series of explosives, that can be activated using chakra, and can also detach from our weapon. Wrap it around the enemy, set it off, boom.
>>42241944True. Perhaps have a Kyoketsu-shoge dagger instead of a hilt, so we have a K-s that can't be cut, that can be poisoned, and that can cover a fucker in explosives.
>>42241999But why be a generalist when you could be a specialist?
>>42242022Because there's no point in being a specialist if we suck at everything else. And besides, we're genin, it's way too early to commit to being a specialist.
>>42241988Our intelligence isn't our weakest stat, or even our most useful one right now.
>>42242022"A Shinobi should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for Samurai."-Hashirama Senju
>>42241959I have some minor faith that Konoha isn't that much of a fucking dick. Toadman is the Hokage right now, and with Sai actually in a normal school there is a large chance that Danzo is not around. Inoichi also seems like a nice and stand up guy himself.
>>42242057>Danzo is not around. Nah, he just has his hands on Naruto.
>>42242051Ergo: Be batman but you should defenitly kill pplalso your parents are dead
>>42242051I can actually see him saying that. Fucking Hashirama.>>42242071I'm going to need some citations on how you came to that conclusion. All evidence so far supports Danzo being dead or having a weaker powerbase than in canon.
>>42242051I would read a Naruto fanfic written in the style of Robert Heinlein. Someone get on that.
>train this stat>no, train that stat!>MORE SPEED>but we're bad at hand signs though>so train the hand signs>TRAIN ALL THE STATS>let's just be a specialist>but we're a rookie?I'm not surprised we can't agree on anything.
>>42242071>his hands on narutoAll over him...
>>42242095I was mainly joking, but we did see the short ANBU guy earlier, who must people think is Naruto.
>>42242051And so the true purpose of D-ranked missions was revealed.
>>42242071I highly doubt that Jiraya, his godfather and the hokage, would let Donzo have Naruto.
gotta go gents, i'll read the archives later have fun...also remember to buy a mask with air filtering, thats good stuff
>>42242145Jiraya could have been fooled and not know of Naruto's existence, or perhaps thinks he is dead.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AZeyNVms7jw&list=PL3AC39BCAE0A97F85&index=4Over the next week you spend a lot of your free time with your Uncle. He loves having you around as an extra pair of hands, and he takes great interest in the stories of your mission."I knew it." he says. "I just knew you were gonna be a great ninja. You just started and you're already doing amazing things."You also manage to convince Kiba and Sasuke to train with you on your off-time. Sasuke acts as reluctant as ever, but seems to enjoy training with his teammates. In particular, he has taken a liking to the sword you gave him.Training with Kiba and Sasuke seemed to push you harder physically than usual. You feel stronger.After training one day, the three of you are walking along, making conversation."So my mom dragged Sensei to dinner at our house the other night, right?" Kiba goes on from in front of you while walking backwards. "Oh man, you guys should have seen it, my mom and sister were looking at him like a piece of meat! Sensei was sweating bullets!"As Kiba laughs, he bumps into somebody. It's a taller kid dressed in a black outfit, with some figure wrapped in bandages on his back. Next to him is a girl with a giant fan. They both have the symbol of the Village Hidden in the Sand on their headbands."Hey watch it." the boy says. "What, are you punks Leaf Genin?">A.Who are you>B.Are you allowed to be here>C.Apologize for Kiba>D.Other
So, I have a question for the OP.Should we be listing stats to grind, or giving a training goal like "learn about our element" and allow the QM to determine which of our stats improve to reach that goal?
>>42242109Okay, you know what? I'm okay with a lot of fucked of things/porn and that is not one of those things.Shit, maybe just about anyone but Danzo in that situation and I wouldn't even care unless it was one of Naruto's parents or something. Naruko? Sure. Tsunade? I'd just ignore it like I do all incestuous M/DILF shotacon unless I'm in the mood for it.Danzo though, now that crosses all the lines twice straight into Silent Hill levels of "No Thanks'.
>>42242251>C.Apologize for Kiba
>>42242251>A.Who are you>C.Apologize for KibaIntroduce ourselves.
>>42242251>C.Apologize for Kiba>D.OtherLets introudce ourselves and be overly pleasant
>>42242251Master of puppets and Vegeta369's girlfriend!Crush a dirt clod and get a bunch of tiny rocks.
>>42242251>D.Other"Nah, we're jonin from the Mist. We're just dressed like we're twelve and wearing the wrong headbands as a joke.""If you'll excuse us, we'll be on our merry way."
>>42242251>C.Apologize for Kibayou sorry for my friend, he is not used to keeping an eye out for people of your illustrious stature
>>42242251Assuming that we've heard of that huge event called the Chunin exams before>Yup. New though. Is it time for the Chunin exams already?
>>42242251>A.Who are you>B.Are you allowed to be here>*Groan inwardly*
>>42242251>D. "Now I know you're not disrespecting us in our own village."
>>42242071I realise the irony of me saying this, but let's not go crazy paranoid here. That's just silly.>>42242251>>C.Apologize for Kiba"After a while, the low attention span becomes part of his charm."
>>42242251>C.Apologize for Kiba>A.Who are you
>>42242251>D.Other Oh course we are, that's why we're wearing leaf headbands. Is it time for the Chuunin exams already? With that level of observational ability I'm sure you'll go far.
Oh man, we can totally have Kon bond with Gaara over the voices in their heads telling them what to do!
>>42242251>C.Apologize for Kiba>D.Other"I take it you're visitors, then? Welcome to Konoha."
>>42242374Yes, then nail his sister!
If asked why we're being so polite we should point out that they haven't tried to pincushion us with needles, chop us in half with a bigass sword, set us on fire, or drown us. So by our usual standards they're being rather amicable.
Okay time for some real talk you niggasThe fuck do you want Kon to be wearing? What kind of outfit, what does it got on it? Cuz other wise Kon gonna be wearing a motherfucking magical girl outfit when I draw him.Also I ain't coloring it, because that way lies an utter cluster fuck war since ya'll never agree on shit!Maybe pitch in or the hair style but otherwise I'll wing it.
>>42242448Plus if they were trying to sneak into/around the village, they wouldn't be walking in the open or start talking when we bump into them.
>>42242466I liked the idea of him having kinda spaghetti western themed outfits.Like, pre-time skip, he's wearing a man with no name style poncho, post-time skip a duster?
>>42242425Do you really want to steal Temari from Shikamaru? That way lies no Shikadai.
>>42242466He wears a gasmask that combines with his headband.
>>42242425We should definitely not NTR Shikamaru. Dude gives me straight Columbine vibes.
>>42242520>>42242492I can live with it, he can have Tenten.
>>42242492>Implying Shikadai won't appear no matter whatTheSeedIsStrong
>>42242491And here I was thinking this was an eastern.
>>42242466The hair on this guy, but green/grey like the majority decided.Also gonna post a pic of CLOTHING i think is good and anons might like.
>>42242466I keep imagining something a little like Tenten, but masculine: vaguely continental, and mostly functional, with darker colors. Maybe blues and greys.
>>42242559I'm not saying he should be dressed like a straight up cowboy, just a poncho/duster and stuff, preferably to hide all of our explosives and weapons and shit.
>>42242539>Nara clan jutsu and intellect >Tenten's weapon mania and what ever else things she does>CombinedI'm scared and aroused at the same time.
>>42242425No hitting on Shikadai's mum. Even if she has got it going on.>>42242466Something simple, functional, with a something distinctive to highlight. Like a flowy jacket, or a scarf. Maybe even a poncho.And lots of pockets for traps components and explosives. I'm talking 90s comic book antihero levels of pocket-having.
>>42242466I'll throw out my lazy suggestion again real quick I guess.Go for that OPERATOR OPERATORS OPERATING OPERATIONALLY look.Rifle green turtleneck.Brown flak vest.Brown pants.Our newly acquired hat.Spy movie style pring loaded knife-boot (are boots a thing, or is it all sandles? I never really paid attention to foot wear) coated with the nastiest poison we can get our hands on.Wool poncho for when it's cold out.
>>42242589Bottom right clothesNO CAPENO FUCKING CAPES. EVER. It looks good without it.Wachu think anons?
>>42242590Kay, but we gotta make the poncho colorful
>>42242620I like it! If we made the cape into a poncho, it could fit a lot of suggestions.
>>42242620we need a screenshot from the incredibles now.
>>42242615I like this, the problem is that we get a flak vest if we manage to become a Chuunin that we're supposed to wear and it's green.
>>42242620I think the cape should be some sort of trap or something.Maybe it has some wire stitched into it that we can use?
>>42242620Ponchos are fine.
>>42242295>>42242302>>42242307>>42242326>>42242353>>42242368>>42242378https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E8oFiJgsyEc&list=PL3AC39BCAE0A97F85&index=16"That's right." you say. "Sorry about my friend here. After a while, the low attention span becomes part of his charm. I'm Kon Karargowa, and these are my teammates, Kiba Inuzuka and Sasuke Uchiha. Who might you be?""Heh. At least one of you has manners." he laughs to himself. "I'm Kankuro and this is Temari. We're Genin from the Land of Wind. We're here for the Chunin exams, which are no doubt news to your dumb friend there.""What did you just say?" Kiba barks at Kankuro."I said you're an idiot." Kankuro goes on. "Whenever I see punks like you, I just wanna beat the shit out of them."The girl, Temari, speaks up. "Are you seriously gonna get into a fight over this? Whatever, I'm not involved, okay?"Kiba and Kankuro look like they're about to come to blows.>A.Stop Kiba>B.Try to stop Kankuro>C.Do nothing>D.Other
>>42242620>Not have a camo-cape that we can cover ourselves with if we have to hide
>>42242676>D.OtherTry to calm them both down.
>>42242615>>42242466I like this one.>>42242650Green goes with brown anyways nigga.
>>42242652Better. It's a tightly-knit weave of wire. On command, we can make it loosen and expand using a jutsu to create a wall of wire and explosive tags.>>42242676>Quietly wrap a loop of wire around his feet, tying them together. "Mind if we borrow him for a day? Show him the sights?"
>>42242676>B.Try to stop Kankuro
>>42242676>D. Stop both of them"Don't show-off to your enemy, you might have to fight each other in the exam, and you don't want to give away any secrets."
>>42242620I'll fucking take it.>>42242636It'll be olive drab and you'll fucking like it, hippie scum.
>>42242707Alright, hoping for Tacticool then.>>42242676>B.Try to stop KankuroBut do it nicely, explain that we're trying to be good hosts and there's no need for him to be angry
>>42242719Yeah, that sounds good.
>>42242676>D.Other"Okay, both of you calm down. If you really want to fight so badly take it to a sparring ground. Doing it in the middle of the street just makes both our villages look bad."
>>42242620>>42242648I like it. Make the cape into a poncho and it works. Even if I still think it needs more pockets.>>42242676>>A.Stop Kiba"Kiba, don't be baited by the asshole. Leave knocking his face in for somewhere it might get you a promotion."
>>42242676>D.Other"Temari, was it? You may want to remind your teammate here to mind his manners. Wouldn't want him wearing out his welcome now, would we?"Creepy serial-killer smile engage.
>>42242676Tiny rocks!Their his one weakness!
>>42242676>Write in"Take off your headband if you are gonna pick a fight on the street, that's what common thugs do and your a ninja of the sand, it's not right to represent your village in such a way, they sent you here to compete, not crack skulls of people who piss you off, Kiba, lets leave."
>>42242620Works for me>>42242719Just put seals on the inside of it, slip out mid-combat, deploy, boom
>>42242788I really like it when nice characters have this secret murderous side, and yanderes are my fetish, but that's a bit ooc and sudden. Remove the 'wearing out welcome' thing and it'd be 10/10 perfect.
>>42242719Seconding the wire.
>>42242808Nice burn, seconding
>>42242865Sounds to preachy tbh
>>42242808We should go with this one.
>>42242845It's an objective statement, he's been here less than five minutes and he's already testing people's patience.
>>42242719This sounds like a bad idea, for reasons outline here >>42242739
>>42242788Seconding this without the 'Wearing out your welcome smile.'
>>42242808If we use this pile, shorten it to >"Take off your headbands if you're gonna pick a fight on the street."They should both realize what that means.
>>42242845This.Our creepy smile should be something that we are completely oblivious to, allowing for Angel Densetsu style intimidation by accident.
>>42242913I was under the impression that Kon had the same eyes his uncle does? The squinty, kinda sketchy anime eyes?
>>42242788>>42242845>>42242913>>42242929Kon isn't and has never shown signs of being a murderous weirdo.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lrr_VVtyUA8Does anyone else want to learn this with Kiba?
>>42242957That's why I like this idea. When he's trying to be nice and kind, he comes across as a psychopath without realizing it. >>42242929
>>42242929I also love mock politeness, or threats that are so heavily veiled by politeness that it's hard to tell if they're even threats.
>>42242974That's not really interesting, nor is it a trait that has shown up at all previously.
>>42242962Only if we sing it whilst beating up Gaara if he goes full Shukaku, whilst complaining about the assassinations on his life.
>>42242985It might have, but we weren't aware. There were moments when it would have been fitting.
>>42242957We blew off a guy's head with zero hesitation and no sign of remorse, and >>42242943 has a point. Our QM basically described the squinty, vaguely untrustworthy eyes as running in Kon's family.So he may not be a nutcase, but there's definitely a case to be made for any politeness in this case to be sarcastic rather than genuine.
>>42243010>It might have, but we weren't aware.If it happened then the other people would have reacted accordingly.But they didn't.>>42243021>We blew off a guy's head with zero hesitation and no sign of remorse,Other ninjas have done similar acts, if not worse ones, and they're not weirdos.
W-Why Serial killer mode anons?It seems so OOC.Why make it an IC thing?Dunno, just feels unnecessary.
>>42243042>>42243049Jesus H Christ, it's not like it's too late to add in some character traits.
>>42243042We are, however, twelve years old. Most Leaf genin aren't in the business of head explosions.Plus, you and several others seem to be confusing "serial killer grin" for literally meaning he's a serial killer, or that he has that mentality, rather than just being the result of sarcasm and naturally squinty anime eyes.
>>42242957Thus why I referenced Angel Densetsu. The protagonist is an absurdly nice guy who wouldn't hurt a fly. But he has the misfortune of looking like some kind of superthug, which combined with his terrible shyness scares the SHIT out of everyone around him.
>>42243049We killed Gato, I don't think it is that OOC as you think.
If we do do the polite threatening thing, I hope we do it Angel Densetsu style like an anon said above.Kon's totally sincere, but the shifty eyes and creepy smile suggest otherwise.
>>42243067It's the 8th thread.I think it kinda is.>>42243049>Dunno, just feels unnecessary.Very much so.>>42243081>>42243082Still sounds pretty dumb.>>42243091Gato's a shit, so no one should care about him dying.>>42243092>Kon's totally sincere, but the shifty eyes and creepy smile suggest otherwise.If that was your intent to begin with, then you should have said so instead of "CEREAL KILLAR SMILE!".
>>42243081>Most Leaf genin aren't in the business of head explosions.what can we say, business is booming

Talk about manners, do you think it's a good idea to represent your village like this? Picking fights on the street?"Seeming to ignore you, Kankuro is about to hit Kiba when he's stopped. Sasuke is holding his sword, still in its sheath, up to Kankuro's neck."Kon's right." he says. "Save it for the exams if you're so eager."Kankuro looks like he just gets more pissed off. "That's it!"He's about to pull something when you all hear a voice. "Step off, Kankuro. You're an embarrassment to our village."You look and see a boy upside down under a tree branch.Kankuro immediately recoils. "Gaara!" he cries. "Sorry, you're right, I was completely out of line, totally."Kankuro turns back to your team. "Sorry guys, you're right. I'm not representing my village very well, let's all meet in the Chunin exams, yeah?"The boy disappears from his spot and reappears in front of Kankuro and Temari."If you try to pull that again Kankuro, I'll kill you." they all turn to leave. "Sorry for the trouble.">A.Say something>B.Stay silent>C.Other
>>42243108>A.Say something"No harm done! See you at the Chuunin exams."
>>42243108>A.Say something"Good Luck"
>>42243108S'cool.I like your gourd. You wanna meet my buddy Haku?You two would looove each other.
>>42243108Wait a minute? Gaara apologizing?
>>42243104It's the 8th thread. No it's not, you overly anal dickweed.>>42243108>A. "Don't worry about it. Every team's got that one guy who's just a bit eager for a fight. Nice to meet you."
>>42243108>>A.Say something"Don't worry about it. It was nice meeting you all, anyway."
>>42243108>>B.Stay silentUntil they leave.Then ponder out loud how powerful that kid must be to make that Kankuro guy shrink away immediately.
>>42243108>A.Say something"Feeling's mutual. Enjoy the rest of your stay."
Note to self.Carry around something super heavy. Make it appear to be a weapon but in reality training for Zabuza sword.
>>42243139>>42243166>>42243173>>42243196>>42243214"Don't worry about it." you call after him. "Good luck at the exams."The next day, after waiting for three hours at the designated location, Kakashi Sensei arrives with the news you were all anticipating."I've nominated all three of you for the Chunin exams." he tells you. "You've all proven to be incredibly talented, and I have no doubt that you're ready."He produces three forms. "If you want to participate, just fill out this form and head to room 301 at the academy five days from now.">A.You'll participate>B.You'll pass>C.Other
>>42243309>A.You'll participateI think being the cocky one is where Kiba is shining as a party member, tbh
>>42243309>A.You'll pass fo' sho
>>42243309>>A.You'll participateKon's is fresh, and pretty trap-focused. I don't think we have what it takes to pass an exam primarily geared for straight combat.
>>42243309>C.Other"I don't care about the recognition, but if you two wanna do it I'm in."
>>42243360>primarily geared for straight combat.Dear god you didn't read/watch it at all did you? The whole second part of the exam is right up Kon's alley!
>>42243309>A. You'll participateWhy wouldn't we?
I'm not sure if we're ready for a promotion so soon.
>>42243309Room 301? Can I get a note for that too?>What will training consist of? More chakra control?Water walking would be nice.
>>42243309>A.You'll participateI don't think we actually have a chance. If we follow canon, we have no hope of passing the first test other than copying Naruto, which is silly. Stage 2 we'd be OK at. And we'll suck at stage 3 because we have no real skills ourselves.
>>42243373That's just the part you have to survive. The third section is where pretty much everything about your candidacy for promotion is judged. The whole tournament style arc.
>>42243454We could try and play it smart. Might win, and besides, we don't wanna keep Sasuke and Kiba from it.
>>42243398Kon's stats are pretty weak, but not THAT weak. And we could probably write in our only answer as >"I fought Zabuza with a dagger and some string, the answer is always to do what you think best at the time"
>>42243309>>A.You'll participateAnything useful we could learn in the mean time?
>>42243316>>42243332>>42243337>>42243339https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AGdFPcLx-vs&list=PL3AC39BCAE0A97F85&index=5"Oh yeah!" Kiba shouts as he takes his form. "We're gonna kick ass, right guys?"Sasuke takes his form. "I'd say we're pretty well equipped, yeah."You take your form. "I'll participate." you tell your Sensei."Good." Kakashi says. "You guys prove you have great teamwork time and time again, so I'm looking forward to it."On the day of the exam, the three of you arrive at the academy. You see teams 6, 8, and 10 there as well.In front of the door, there are two guys standing. They seem to have hit Sakura when she tried to pass."Don't even bother." one says. "If you can't get past us, you don't have a chance at the exam. Give up and go home.">A.Confront them>B.Stay out of it>C.Other
Oh was 'You'll pass' "Na, I'll pass on this one" or "Yeah! I'll pass for sure?"
>>42243454I'm more for uncovering the conspiracy behind the chuunin exams.Also need to learn and pass around that dispel jutsu.One thing Sakura got right.
>>42243507What's with the bandages, have you already been beaten up?
>>42243507>Hey Sasuke, Judging from how far we climbed up we'd still be on the second floor wouldn't we?

>>42243507>A.Confront them"Move. I have neither the time nor the patience for garbage who'd bully their own comrades."
>>42243507>B.Stay out of itDon't see how we can deal with this ourselves. Our genjutsu is trash, plus we'll get to see our competition act.
>>42243507>C. Nutshot on one of them.
>>42243507Nevermind, changing my vote from >>42243561to >>42243550
>>42243507>>B.Stay out of itLet's watch Lee go berserk.
>>42243550Say this with a smile, but use a fake tag and don't actually touch Sakura.
>>42243542I thought we were at the entrance to the academy, going by the text? Things can be different from canon.
>>42243550>>42243625>>42243586>Blowing someone up for mild bullying
>>42243647Yeah, pretty sure stairs haven't even been mentioned yet. Pure metagaming.
>>42243656I *did* suggest using a fake tag and keeping our hands off Sakura. I hope the QM realizes that there's a problem with the version people seem to be bandwagoning onto.
>>42243656Well the creepy smile goes well with our explosive personality.
>>42243656Half the supporters advocate using a fake tag.
We are fucking retardedThey are leaf shinobi for gods sakeI also have felling that OP either overestimates Sasuke or underestimates Kankuro
>>42243656Explosives are much weaker in the Naruto world. We can use a fake tag if we need to.
>>42243507I'll go with the fake tag plan.
>>42243706They're messing with us, and a fake tag would be messing with them back.That's how camaraderie works, isn't it?
>>42243736Dear god I hope so.
>>42243709No they aren'tNot at fucking allIf you want to see example in late part of series look at Madara fightUnless he overcharged it somehow which is actually a possibility it still can blow up groups of chunin/jounin
>>42243736>kon becomes renowned around Konoha for his party tricks and gag items>nobody he fights is ever sure if he's trying to kill them or notDo want.
I'd rather it be a stink bomb or a flash grenade.But they don't make those kind of tags do they?
>>42243818>Kon's face when
>>42243822They don't make tags like that, but I assume we have some anyways.
I think you guys are overestimating usThese dudes were still on level of Sasuke even though they were faking being geninCould we pull this off on Sasuke?
>>42243818That picture is adorable.
>>42243853Maybe?I mean, Sasuke's stats aren't really that much better than ours, we're about the same level as him on a lot of things.
>>42243843I think it'd be more like https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q3JknE8Rft0
>>42243550https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AVeOVahsu70&index=49&list=PL3AC39BCAE0A97F85You calmly walk up to the two guys. They expect you to make some kind of statement, but are surprised when you pull an explosive tag and place it on the right guy's shoulder.The tag is fake, but they don't know that. The right one freaks out and runs off, while the left one just stares incredulously.Sasuke walks up after you. "Pretty funny Kon, but that wasn't necessary. Your genjutsu sucks, so you wouldn't know, but we're not even on the third floor."All the other participants look around confused, save for the guy left in front of you. "So you saw through the illusion, huh? Not bad."He dispels the genjutsu and leaves as all the participants start to head upstairs.Your team starts to leave as well, when you're stopped."Sasuke!" you hear from behind you. It's Lee, now sporting a bowl cut and green jumpsuit. Though he looks far more ridiculous than the last time you saw him, he also looks somehow stronger."That was impressive." he states. "You truly were the most talented of all the students at the academy. As the former weakest, I would like to measure myself against you. Would you oblige me with a sparring match?">A.Stop them, there's no time for this>B.Encourage them>C.Stay silent
>>42243894>A.Stop them, there's no time for this
>>42243894>>A.Stop them, there's no time for thisNope, not dealing with this.
>>42243894>A.Stop them, there's no time for thisWe shouldn't be insistent, but we should remind Sasuke we need to get to room 3-1, and we shouldn't fight until the exams actually begin.
>>42243894Get offended he didn't challenge us.Then ask him about his new look.
>>42243894>A.Stop them, there's no time for this"We kinda have to go now, since the illusion those two guys used wasted some time. You two might be end up fighting in the exams, I bet."
>>42243894Lee, while that sounds like you'd enjoy it, We'd sue up all our energy for the exams. If you two don't end up facing each other in the exams later, challenge after them, ok?
>>42243894>C.Stay silent"Assuming it's the right room, I'll be inside. Try not to get us kicked out before the test even starts, though."
>>42243894>A. Stop them, there's no point advertising what you're capable of.
Who want's to bet that we will meet Gaara in forest and somehow pull victory off?After all we have more plot armor than team 7 at whole so it shouldn't be that hard
>>42243997To be fair, the only genin weaker than us is fucking Choji.
>>42244016We could probably defeat some of them by "place tag on them and run" techniqueIt's currently our most powerful one
>>42243997Laze already told us we won't fight Gaara in the prelims.
>>42243997Kon is going to be so pleasant as a person that not even Gaara could bring himself to go all out. That will cost him dearly.
>>42244050Might be able to trip them up with kyoketsu-shoge too. As long as we play it safe and play to our strengths, we have a shot.
>>42244016>Sakura>Stronger than usWut
>>42243925>>42243927>>42243932>>42243942>>42243985You interrupt before Sasuke can answer. "We don't have time for this right now, guys. You'll probably get a chance to face off during the exams, but right now we have to be somewhere. Besides, wouldn't you rather keep your moves secret until the right time?"Lee considers your argument. "You are right, Kon. For now, I will relent. I look forward to testing myself against you in the exams!"With that, your team heads to room 301. The Chunin exams are about to begin.>End of chapter 8Will probably run again tomorrow, guysTwitter is @LazeQMSticking around for a while
>>42244079Actually, I'm wrong. With the bonuses we got from training, I think we're stronger than Hinata, Choji, and maybe Kiba. Still weaker than Sakura.
>>42244016There's Ino and Sakura too, we can probably beat them.
>>42244096How much plot armor do we have now?Assuming that 5 is plot armor of Sasuke durning fight with Deidara18?
>>42244016Choji is a beast. He's just too nice to use it most of the time.We're still stronger than Sakura, at least. And Ino. Maybe even Hinata. But if we draw Shino, we're bug chow. Dude is scary.
>>42244096>Thanks LazeBtw, we only interact with tenten right?
>>42244122According the stats thing, we're equal to Ino at 15, with Sakura being 15.5. We might be able to beat people who are better than us just by playing it smart, but I'm going off of our stats right now.
>>42244143No one has as much plot armor as Sauce during that fight
>>42244157Yeah, you've only interacted with Tenten and your teammates on your own time
>>42244197How many people in the Chunin exams do we actually have a chance against? Also, do we have any plans for the test part yet?
>>42244197So exactly where do our stats stand, since people seem to be obsessing over them as the sole indicator of our survivability?
>>42244228You are selling yourself kind of shortThere are ways for you to beat well over half of the participants
>>42244160The stats don't mean too much. Sakura can't benefit from her high genjutsu against us because she doesn't know any (in canon anyway). Likewise even though hinata's stats are lower, her byakugan would murder us.
>>42244096... three hours feels kinda short, tbh.
>>42244275There has yet to be ninja that can outsmart explosion.
>>42244248They are in the pastebin in the OP, plus 0.5 strength, which will be updated by next thread>>42244284I feel you. I am new to QMing though, I kind of get worn out honestly. I like to think running nearly daily makes up for it a bit.
>>42244260So, did Sasuke teach us any jutsu that may be helpful? Are we better than most genin at the basic substitution and/or Clone jutsu?
>>42244228Most of themWe somehow were quicker than guys that will challenge Kakuzu
>>42244318Quality over quantity,eh?I can manage
>>42244284Eh, we still hit bump limit despite the short amount of time, so maybe that speaks well of Laze's ability?
Really I'm only concerned that our techniques are incredibly basic, and honestly boring. At this point even Tenten was sealing shitloads of weapons into scrolls, while we've gotten MARGINALLY stronger and learned no new techniques. It's like we've come to a bat fight with a wiffle bat.
>>42244421We need something unique to give us an edge. As it is right now, we're an average student with the average beginning jutsu.
>>42244421Wiffle bats can become shivs y'know
>>42244421We are average genin that get's sent to chunin exams thenBut not only we lack any actual techniques but we also lack experienceIn truth we are more useless than Sakura was
>>42244336No, you mainly did weapons training with him. You're getting pretty good at that, though.You're actually worse than most at clone jutsu, but your substitution is really good.>>42244338You totally surprised them, they didn't see that comingAlmost literally BTFO>>42244391That's just because there's a lot of posters>>42244421Just like Sakura
>>42244421It's not how much boom you have, its where you boom your boom.
>>42244391Not to knock Laze, but not particularly. Pointless arguing among 43 players after every decision pushes towards bump limit very fast, and Naruto quests have always gotten large playerbases. Again not to speak ill of the QM, just that you can't take it as indicative of anything but the state of the playerbase.
>>42244479>just like sakuraa...I cant argue with that
>>42244494That made no sense. Like at all.>>42244479>Just like SakuraYOU TAKE THAT BACK RIGHT NOW.>>42244458Stats-wise we're actually below average in a lot of regards, with fewer jutsu at our disposal than most.We could have trained our hand signs and learned a jutsu or two, but apparently we can't have nice things. Just a minor bump in a stat I thought we were going to dump.
>>42244479I wouldn't mind having an assortment a pre-woven wires and explosive tag setups that can be set up in seconds using Kunai.
Let me just say that this was kind of intentional thematically. Like the point was to prove you can rock it with the big boys by getting to the finals under your own power, then you have an entire world of crazy jutsu open up to you.That's how I imagined it, anyway
>>42244584Unless we are really great or can avoid negatives from low stats we would need to grind all of them to 3 to become jounin anywayBut becoming tokubetsu juonin is nearly as good and we don't need to be expert at everythingBut that's not going to be problem for long time
>>42244659So a rocking waves before the shitstorm?
>>42244659The problem with this is that unless we get very lucky with opponents or there will be no prelims we won't be getting to finalsAnd I seriously doubt we even have chance of promotion
>>42244659Like YYH's Genkai Tournament Arc?
>>42244613Actually, this would be useful. Since we don't have alot of jutsu, being able to manipulate the battlefield in seconds and restrict our opponent's movement using Wire and Explosive tags, combined with a significant amount of speed, Taijutsu, and even average strength would win us most, if not all, fights.
>>42244724You don't really need any sort of special jutsu to beat most of the contestants, and I already mentioned that I won't have you face off against anyone that it's literally impossible for you to beat Gaara and Sasuke before the finals, just for the purpose of the story.>>42244734Kind of, yeah.
>>42244777Genjutsu people would gank us tho, but yeah, I think we could do some cool things.
>>42244777I'm still pulling for a chakra weapon, like the "standard issue" Konoha chakra blade with a thin chain of the same metal instead of our kyoketsu shige. It's perfect.Keep our style similar, but play better to our strong chakra control and decently ninjutsu and stamina scores. It'd give us a genuine strength that we'd never outgrow while we work on our glaring weaknesses.
>>42244870Also, it's a way to use the alien ninja magic that's a main feature of the setting that doesn't require us to git gud at hand signs first.>http://naruto.wikia.com/wiki/Konoha_Chakra_Blade
>>42244870I wouldn't mind getting an upgrade to our kyoketsu-shoge, but I don't wanna ditch it entirely.
Oh god, I was checking back on some old naruto clips and I never realized that there was a second Chunnin exam arc. I know what I am doing tonight.
>>42245084The one in sand?Naruto fucks it up
So are we wearing armor or not?Are we wearing poncho or not?Will we pick new look next chapter or not?
>>42245159I think someone's drawing it? And I think we decided on the bottom right look here >>42242620 but with a poncho instead of a cape.
>>42245116Yep, he did. In embarassing fashion.To be fair, they did have to introduce rules specifically to limit him so he didn't stomp everyone ever into dust.
>>42245184And I figured out a use for a poncho-hoodie. Completely fireproof, and we can run chakra through it to make it completely blastproof.
>>42244802Hey, you ever watch Basilisk or the live action movie "SHINOBI: Heart Under Blade"?Could be some Kekkai Genkais in there.
>>42244802A way to settle this would be to have people throw suggestions at you at the start of a thread, and after half an hour you compile all the ones that we can have, then have us vote on just one of them.Examples:>A blast-proof poncho for close range detonations>A kyoketsu-choge type weapon, except Chakra Blade metal>A complex series of wires and kunai that allow for almost instantaneous deployment of traps, explosives, and general battle-field changing bullshit>+1 to one stat of our choosing>A solid clone jutsu that utilizes whatever chakra type we've got.
>>42245296I have not
Regarding our outfitcan we have a filtering mask to cover most of our face as well as protecting us from poisons cuz that would be pretty nice
>>42245345+1 in a stat is fucking OPf we could do bullshit like that we would be kage level in a year
>>42245345A lot of that stuff will have to be addressed later on an individual basis, but>A complex series of wires and kunai that allow for almost instantaneous deployment of traps, explosives, and general battle-field changing bullshitYou could actually do this right now. If you guys want, you can just operate under the assumption that you already have a bunch wires and kunai rigged up, ready to go
>>42245426Or we could just coat out lungs in chakraOh waitOur chakra control fucking sucks!
>>42245433.....sure>>42245426We can have poison smokebomb ready to use
>>42245433....guys, we're doing this now. We're tying someone up with kunai, suspending them in midair, with explosive tags placed all over them all artsy.
>>42245472That could actually be awesome. We need to use that in the exams.
>>42245453i don't remember that being a thing in the manga, then again i didnt read naruto since last year>>42245456we could already grab/make/acquire one of those couldnt we?
>>42245426Nah, too edgy, we'll look ridiculous.
>>42245433Could we at least get ourselves half a point in Intelligence because>Complex wire setup>Physics knowledge from explosives>Charismatic
>>42245539I think we actually went up half a point earlier.
>>42245453Actually, our chakra control is the best on our team. We've got Sasuke beat in that regard, actually.
>>42245472Deidara as fuckWonder how our duel be like?
>>42245539I hope we train in Intelligence so we can start outsmarting people.
>>42245083Don't get all sentimental, our current weapon's not gonna have its feelings hurt if we swap it out for something that's a straight upgrade.This sort of thing would be a great upgrade between the first elimination match and the finals.
>>42245571we joseph when?
>>42245116>>42245216Wait a minute, are we talking about the same one? I knew about the OVA were Naruto faced that one kid, I was talking about the Chunnin exam that happens durring the 2 year time skip, Naruto isn't in it.
>>42245558what went up by a 0.5 was str not int
>>42245668Yeah, but I'm pretty sure in the last thread our intelligence was 1.5, and now it's 2.
>>42245560It's just we've been largely ignored for any serious training from Kakashi, and have no intrinsically powerful techniques.>>42245571That's one stat I'm comfortable ignoring, since /tg/'s collective batting average when it comes to smarts works just fine as-is. Sometimes anon is brilliant, sometimes he's retarded, and I trust the QM well enough to give an adequate reflection of that in the narrative.
>>42245647Oh, that. I don't think we ever saw that, did we?
>>42245705I'd rather Intelligence not be an official stat.
>>42245705Which makes our chakra control a large waste of potential, really. On the chakra training, we got it pretty much instantly. We've got Sakura Level chakra control (we could be a Grade-A medical nin if we wanted)
what would be our priority stats to up right now for the exam?
>>42245748I'd vote for hand signs, speed, ninutsu, and taijutsu, in roughly that order. We should also spend some time getting to know some more of our peers.
>>42245741>when time skip happens we train under tsunade>we became best heal ninja ever>we have sakura's skillkit plus our boom-boom fetish>we are 100x more effective than sakura ever was in the series
>>42245748Best we will get in one month is half of pointWe should learn technique or two instead
>>42245748Intelligence and Speed. Intelligence for the written portion and Speed for more rapid deployment of traps.
>>42245804DudeWhat if.....healing bomb
>>42245912DUDE DUDEJUST LISTENWhat if-JUST LISTEN...What if we make a bomb that acts like a virus that spreads in it's AoE?(be it a tradicional poison, lethal, paralysing, you name it)
>>42246016Rice-sized pieces of sodium in a thin film of varnish that only dissolves in the presence of stomach acid.
>>42246455I've been diving the archives and just read the quest so far. Thanks for running Laze.I've enjoyed reading the quest so far and I'm excited about the Chunin exams. Good job!
>>42245705Performance-wise it's fine, but we can't "Your next line is..." without high Int.
>>42245748I'd rather we just place fake explosive tags all over the place for other students to find. Like under the desks, or in the bathroom.All the while we're just quietly smiling.
>>42246643Even on our back.....Dont trust anyone, not even yourself
>>42246614before thred is dead QM i got 2 questionsDo you have an ask.fm(is that how it's called?)and do you think kakashi will be able to give us some last minute training for the chunnin exam?
>>42246694I don't know what that isUnfortunately no, since the exam is team based until the finals, and he thinks you guys have top tier teamwork, he expects you all to do well until the finals, where he would then be concerned with more training
>>42246643>>42246672Good initially for shits and giggles, bit it could actually create a good enough distraction in the test segment to get our answers off someone. In fact I'm shocked nobody tried anything like that in canon.>Tenten asks after the exam if we were the one who put up all the fake explosive tags>"Who said they were fake?"
>>42246694Unless he knows tsukuyomi I doubt he can train usAlso ask.fm sucks now
>>42246737i meant thishttp://ask.fm/for quick questions and answers
>>42246767i have a really foggy memory on how the chunnin exam worked so i'll just take your word for ir>Also ask.fm sucks nowask.fm is a pretty simple system you ask someone something and you get an answer or did it get more annoying to do that?
>>42246767>>42246778The quick question thing is kind of why I stick around until the thread diesI don't know if I want to do a whole other thing
>>42246841oh ok thenbtw really enjoying the quest so far, nice work Laze
>>42246672>remove jacket mid-exam>people freak out>"Oh, so that's where I left that. Sorry, didn't mean to cause a fuss."
So Laze, is Land of Snow happening?Because that would give us an excuse to rock a white poncho continuously, for a whole arc. Also to try and hijack that kunai-machine-gun-thing train.
>>42247119Maybe I guess. Do people want that?
>>42247119Is land of snow the ones in the movie?
>>42247128didnt watch the land of snow but the idea of a white poncho is far too sexy for me to resist
Just realized Kakashi can summon dogs. We gonna dogs-summons team?
>>42247128Sure, movies are fun.
I wanna stab things with our bone.
>>42240568>>Maned up.I am now picturing a Haku with a resplendent mane, like that of a lion.
>>42247128I don't remember a lot of the side stuff, but if you think it would be fun and you have some ideas I'm game to go places that may not have been strictly in the canon or were in movie and whatnot.
>>42247128Nah man, I'm mostly kidding.>>42247155Yep.Honestly the only things of any value in that movie are:Kakashi and one of the mooks have a narwhal battle. It makes just as much sense in context as when I just say that it happens.That kunai-machine-gun-thing on the train is awesome.The movie itself is pretty thoroughly "meh", and doesn't really fit within the overall plot very well.
>>42247167That movie was entirely composed of cheese, cliché and stupid. Only thing I remember even vaguely liking about it was the knife launcher on the train.
>>42247274Just use Kuchiyose after asking Kakashi to teach it to usThanks to our plot armor we won't die from this
>>42247128The only movie I would really say 'no' to is the 'no tails' thing. That is bullshit that Kon cannot handle like Naruto should. that said, if Kon were a side character to Naruto's plot, that might be fun.
>>42247389We would die horribly in pretty much every movieIn truth we should be dead already
>>42247322Still androgynous tho. >tfw we ask a favor to help us with trapping someone>Tfw Haku crossdress and lure the target to our trap(s)>tfw we shout "You are already trapped"Fist of the north star ahoy
>>42247128oh, yeah movie stuff is fun and unlike with the actual series we can actually bring stuff back to influence the plot.If we ever decide to go down the puppet path stuff like the kunai machine gun or the power armor in land of snow would be great.
>>42247274but kiba already has the whole dog thing going for him, we go for something diferent like, i dunno, bats or monkeys or something
>>42247428That being said, I wonder how people we knew reacted to us bringing back a "girl" from our first real mission.
>>42247462Monkeys would be cool, but the Sarutobi clan has that locked up.Armadillos?
>>42247479The only girl we know is Tenten....and she have no fucks to give
>>42247479Unfortunately for your amusement, no one actually knows that you didAt least yet anyway
>>42247479the girls would probably catch on the fact that haku's a guy in 3 to 5 seconds since in some animes they can tell imediatly which is or is not...and then they would question our preferences
So can we agree that we should just cast Kuchiyose after chunin exams?
>>42247462Bats would make great stealthy messagers and would probably be great for sensory jutsu and both our parents are dead so we could become Batsage and fuck things up with traps, gadgets and prep time.
>>42247522Wouldnt it be cool to have our own assassin?>Shit is getting tough>Enemy know we are trapped>We smirk>"HAKU">Suddenly...Ice and senbos
>>42247551I wanna summon slugs!
>>42247597Dudee...how bout.....a Kunai cat
>>42247522How has Haku been the past week? We've been keeping up with her, right?
>>42247623Uchiha took these
>>42247651He refers to himself as a guy, it's okay to call him a guy.
>>42247575But I don't wanna be Batninja. We don't even have a Robin ye->Haku...huh. This might have potential.
>>42247651You've seen him around, but haven't really talkedHe seems to be doing okay though
>>42247643DUUUUDDEEEEEEA bat which is a boomerangright on maan
>>42247680Honestly? To me either works for him.
>>42247697Well you're wrong, you can't go around referring to people with wrong pronouns, bitch
>>42247680>>42247697>>42247717Lets just agree that Haku shares a bathroom with Hideyoshi and leave it at that.
>>42247696actually if you think about it we really do look like ninja batman
>>42247680>>42247697>>42247717>>42247751One can be a transvestite without being transsexual, guys.
Guys. GUYS.Lead bat summon voiced by Adam West.
>>42247767I thought we looked like a mix of kaiba and brock with a poncho?
>>42247793For the last time, Terumi and Gin.
>>42247793>kaibaBut we're not arrogant and hypercompetitive douche with a MASSIVE soft spot for our fellow orphans, anon.Nor are we a blue eyes white dragon shaped F-18, bro.
>>42247793I thought we looked like Hazama.
>>42247793I am sure we are wearing armor from warring clans times with poncho
>>42247838Hazama and Gin mix.
>>42247868...they have the same face. The only notable difference is hair colour.
>>42247838>>42247868That was my understanding. I still wanna cut out as many teams as we can manage in the first stage. Kicking seat backs until someone snaps and gets kicked out, laying fake explosives around the place, "accidentally" hitting people with our pencil to provoke a response, etc. Anything to get people to make themselves look foolish.
>>42247973Wow, that sounds like a pathetic shinobi way.
>>42247973And probably make examinators think we are cheating
>>42247973Nah. Save eliminating the competition for the second exam. That's our best shot at getting anything done in the exam.Unless Orochimaru is still around. In which case we may be a tad fucked. Possibly.
>>42248060Hey, is anyone else in favor of taking whatever Orochimaru has to offer us?
>>42240481>>42248058Keep up the good work, anon
>>42248093Only thing we have of value to him is our bloodlineAnd we don't have it yet
>>42248093I'm going to go with no.Much as I like the character, he's skeevy as fuck.
>>42248149We don't even know if we have one at this point.
>>42248149When we get to the finals we'll see, because I'm guessing that's when we'll see it.
>>42248237>tfw we fight Shikamaru>Tfw we became sherlock and moriarty, fighting with intellect and traps>tfw it took two thread to finish itIts just like my boruto quest
>>42248149We don't necessarily have one.
>>42248308>tfw Temari beats Tenten in the prelims>tfw we fight a protracted, losing battle against Temari in the finals>tfw suddenly Kekkei Genkai
>>42248308Wasn't that supposed to be running tonight? Anyone heard from MA?
>>42248428Dont have twitter.
>>42248428He hasn't posted anything
