>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 newly promoted Leaf Chunin. Your character is defined by your choices, so write-ins are always encouraged.

>>42722490HYPE>We hammertime now.
You may be a Chunin now, but your missions don't manage to be any more exciting despite being C rank. The next week or so sees you and your team doing missions as couriers and escorts, but mostly in the village or near it. Not once did you or your team meet any hostilities, but you have had to face a formidable amount of paperwork.Though you've been busy with missions, you have found a fair amount of free time to do as you wish.>Choose two activities>A.Train (specify)>B.Spend time with (specify)
>>42722490Huh, I was just disappointed that I clicked on #23 without realizing my phone hadn't updates since I used it last, what luck.
>>42722594>A.Train (specify)Chameleon Jutsu and focusing Impact release into a stream. Because new techniques will benefit us much more than modest gains.>B.Spend time with (specify)Checking up on Konohamaru like Sarutobi sensei asked, explicitly asking Tenten out.
>>42722594>C. Bother Tenten about getting yourself a Chakra Hammer.Also >>42722618 but others may not agree.
>>42722594>>A.Train (specify)FunjustuMonkey shuffle: By summoning the same monkey at different times Konohamaru and Kon can pass messages, supplies and potentially even reinforcements over great distances.
>>42722594>>A.Train (specify)Our impact techniques, and bombs, bombs are fun.>B.Spend time with (specify)Konohamrau to make sure he's ok, Our team, and Tenten.
>>42722594>A.Train (specify)Learning a Lightning jutsu so we have both halves of our release understood. Practice with Sasuke while doing it, get him on the track to refining Chidori into other techniques.>B.Spend time with (specify)Watching over Konohamaru like we promised we would. His parents are both ANBU (and possibly dead, it's not clear when they don't even have names) and Asuma's busy with his team. Kid needs someone to take take of him.
>>42722664Hammer is probablly affordable. Plus if we get it engraved with a reverse summoning seal by 10/10, we can call it back to hand from anywhere. And also throw it after charging it with Impact chakra and laugh as it becomes literally unstoppable.Literally Marvel Mjolnir, including calling forth lightning.
>>42722646>Monkey shuffle: By summoning the same monkey at different times Konohamaru and Kon can pass messages, supplies and potentially even reinforcements over great distances.Sealing abuse for fun and profit. Also bigger explosions should be possible
>>42722490>Choose two activities>A.Train (Taijutsu)>B.Spend time with (Tenten)
>>42722594>>A.Train (specify)Our impact release techniques. In particular, try to develop feedback further to mitigate damage received.>>B.Spend time with (specify)Konohamaru. We said we'd look after him, so we will. Help him train, maybe get up to some monkey business from time to time so he doesn't overfocus.
>>42722594Talk to Kono and Tenten
>>42722732Chameleon Jutsu would be amazing for Kon, and it would age so well.
So they're giving us pleb missions near the village because of our Kekkei, and they don't want us out of their sight. Can we find Kakashi and get him to take us on a real mission?
I see the hammerfags are already out in force.Y'all are worse than the swordfags.>>42722594Seconding >>42722618>Chameleon Jutsu and focusing Impact release into a stream>Old Man Kon winds up being Ninja The End
>>42722810I think it's less to do with our bloodline and more to do with us still being in the training period. We're a fresh chuunin and they want to get us used to the job before they move us to anything more dangerous.
>>42722903>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N5JHJ9Z5x5ASPIRITS OF THE FORESTI HAVE NO REGRETS
You guys are gonna need someone to teach you Chameleon JutsuYou spend time training with your Impact techniques and manage to make a new one. By focusing your Impact chakra to a single point, then releasing it in a thin stream, you can fire a beam of concussive force that punches straight through most substances. Its piercing effect is impressive, but the beam itself is very thin. You may have trouble hitting fast moving targets.You also spend some time with Konohamaru, to see how he's doing. His attitude is remarkably good, and his training hasn't slowed down one bit. His teacher Ebisu has nothing but constant praise for him.You also attempt to spend some more time with Tenten, but your conflicting schedules make it difficult. Though she does apologize and promise to teach you some sealing jutsu when you both have time.>continued
You're woken up early one morning by your uncle. The sun has barely risen."Kon, you need to get up!" your uncle calls. "The Hokage has sent for you!"You get ready and head straight over to the Hokage's office to find Tenten and Shikamaru already there. Jiraiya looks at the three of you, his face serious."You three are about to receive an urgent mission." the Fifth states. "Hinata Hyuuga has deserted the village, in the company of four of Orochimaru's men."Tenten reacts with disbelief. "She joined Orochimaru? That's not possible!""Well, it happened." Jiraiya replies. "I don't know what she was thinking, but we can't let our ninja be swayed. Not again. You three will be heading to retrieve her.""We're just newly promoted Chunin." Shikamaru interrupts. "At the very least, we should be accompanied by a Jonin. Can't you send anyone with us?""There is no one." the Hokage answers. "Almost all of my Jonin are off laying the groundwork for diplomatic operations. Everyone that remains is necessary for the defense of the village. You three are the only ones I can rely on. I've called Neji back, but he won't make it in time. The Sound ninja already have a lead of several hours. You three need to leave in the next 30 minutes if you hope to catch up. Grab a couple of Genin to accompany you if necessary, but move fast."The three of you leave the office to find Sasuke waiting directly outside. Apparently he's already aware of the situation somehow."I'm coming with you." he insists. "I'm partially to blame for this.""Well, I'm gonna go grab someone I can trust." Shikamaru says, as he turns to head off. "I'll meet you all at the gate.""We could have time to find one more genin to join us." Tenten notes. "But anymore than that, and I don't think we'd have an effective squad.""I'd suggest bringing Kiba." Sasuke adds. "But unfortunately, he's off on some mission with his family. You got any ideas, Kon?">A.We're good with this amount>B.Go get someone to join
>>42722903I support the Ninja The End project
>>42722998Oh cool, we're Valefor now
>>42723027Haku? He'd be good for containment. Hinata can't escape surrounded by ice mirrors.
>>42723027>B.Go get someone to joinWhat about Shino and Haku?
>>42723027>B.Go get someone to joinLet's get Shino. He can heal us, cure us from poisoning, help Kiba track our enemies and is able to kick some ass.
>>42723027>TrackingObviously we bring Kiba.
>>42723027>B.Shino and Haku?
>>42723088Sasuke just said that Kiba's not in town right now.
>>42723027>B.Go get someone to join"We should have a tracker. Haku passed as a tracker-nin for years... but maybe Shino would be better."
>>42723086>>42723088Kiba's with his family on a mission.
>>42723027>B.Go get someone to joinHaku and Kiba.Kiba's a good tracker, and Haku's mirrors will be extremely useful for keeping Hinata from getting away.
>>42723027>>B.Go get someone to joinHaku?
>>42723027>B.Go get someone to joinShino. Since he didn't get to come on the canon version of this mission.
>>42723027>>B.Go get someone to joinShino would be good. If not him, Haku.Also>The three of you leave the office to find Sasuke waiting directly outside. Apparently he's already aware of the situation somehow.>"I'm coming with you." he insists. "I'm partially to blame for this."Damn it, Sauce. What did you do?
>>42723103>>42723088I see. >>42723027Bring Shino and Haku.
>>42723106Well, Haku and Shino then.
>>42723139He bitched at her in the Chuunin exams. Told her to stop hiding and confront shit.
>>42723027Shino deserves this, Hinata is even his teammate
So, which member of the Four (Five) are we taking on? Kidomaru? Sakon/Ukon?
>>42723212I'd guess Sakon/Ukon or Kimimaro at the end. We don't really match well against the others, but our shockwave might work on expelling Sakon from our body, and Kimimaro just because I want to team up with Lee. (Who may not come as in canon)
>>42723212All of them. No retarded one-on-one shit, we soften each one up and have Tenten reverse summon us as many time as she can/is necessary.I also want at least one prisoner to be interrogated, if that should prove possible.
"I say we bring Haku or Shino then." you suggest. "They can both track pretty well.""I don't know if we're actually allowed to bring Haku." Sasuke interrupts. "He's not technically a ninja of our village as far as I know.""We should definitely bring Shino, though." Tenten adds. "Hinata is his teammate, too."The three of you go to the Aburame residence as quickly as you can. After telling Shino that Hinata has deserted, he joins you and you leave for the village gates. When you arrive, Shikamaru is already there, and he brought Choji."Wait one moment." Shino insists. "All three of you are Chunin, but who is the leader on this mission? We don't want to have to deal with conflicting orders.">A.I'll be the leader>B.Tenten should lead us>C.Shikamaru should be the leader>D.Stay silent
>>42723356>>C.Shikamaru should be the leaderHe's the smartest.
>>42723356>C.Shikamaru should be the leaderBut we should be ready to split into smaller teams if needed, each led by a Chunin.
>>42723356>>D.Stay silenQuiteness don't fail me now
>>42723356>C."Shika's got the best mind of us all, but if he doesn't want to do it...">A."I can be the leader."
>>42723356>>C.Shikamaru should be the leaderMy leading would involve most of you covered in explosives
>>42723356>B.Tenten should lead usHinata's part of her team. If it were Sasuke or Kiba, I doubt we'd let anyone else take command.
>>42723356>C.Shikamaru should be the leader
>>42723356>B.Tenten should lead us"Hinata's her teammate."
>>42723356>>C.Shikamaru should be the leaderWe're smart. We are not that smart.
>>42723408Are you saying that's not valid strategy?
>>42723356>A.I'll be the leader
>>42723356>C. Shikamaru should be the leaderHe's the better strategist.
>>42723444I'm saying they wouldn't understand the genius of having explosives primed and stuck to yourself
>>42723356>>B.Tenten should lead us
>>42723408>Kok designs a forbidden Justu for his clan>summons flesh and blood clones, with jackets of explosive tags.
>>42723488>I AM A TRUE STRATEGIST AND ARTIST!>Kon, calm down and get these explosives off us.I don't see how this could go wrong.
>>42723488> Implying Allahu Akbar is not the ultimate jutsu
>>42723508>>42723520>Kon catches up with Hinata>"I'm here to bring you back!">"By blowing you up!"
>>42723501>>42723488>>42723508DON'T YOU SEE YOU'RE INVINCIBLE IF THEY TRY TO HARM YOU THEY WILL SIMPLY EXPLODE THEMSELVES
>>42723543He'll launch her all the way back to Konoha. It can't fail.
>>42723543Wow, that would cause quite the explosive reaction back in Konoha.
My sides. They have been launched.
>>42723394>>42723399>>42723407>>42723408>>42723418>>42723443"Shikamaru is the smartest out of all of us." you reply. "He should be the leader."Everyone agrees with your statement, and with a groan, Shikamaru accepts."Fine then." Shikamaru addresses the group. "First thing: Our Formation.""I'm in front." Sasuke interjects. "With my Sharingan, I can keep a sharper eye out than any of you.""If that's what you want." Shikamaru sighs. "How about this, then?"Shikamaru makes a diagram on a piece of paper.SasukeShinoShikamaruTentenChojiKon"Any objections?" Shikamaru asks.>A.I should be moved>B.Someone else should be moved>C.Other
>>42723562>>42723564It'll be a long series of smaller explosions we set up the whole way there.WE HAVE OUR PLAN
>>42723600Why am I in last? As we move out.
>>42723600>C.OtherSounds good. Let's go.
>>42723600>B.Someone else should be movedChoji should be 3rd unless he's got a ranged jutsu I haven't heard about. Also shouldn't someone with better senses take up the rear?
>>42723600>C.Could you explain your reasoning?
>>42723356>"Actually, just a thought. Tenten, can you make that reverse summoning seal into a tag? The issue is how do I signal to you that the tag is attached to Hinata?"
>>42723628It's called rearguard, SA.It's the second most dangerous position, after point, and is a pain in the fucking ass because you have to be constantly watching behind you, without lagging behind the column.
>>42723645I know that. Just wondering why Shiki have it to Kon.
>>42723600>>C.OtherKeep trying to get some glaces at Tenten's ass around Choji
>>42723600>C.Other"Tenten, please put another Reverse Summoning seal on my back. Then let's get going."
Hmm would Shino's bug sense better than we can? I feel we should be in the middle somewhere to act as a quick response because of our great speed.
>>42723604Orion Drive no Jutsu would be the best technique. Let's make it.
>>42723645In canon that was Neji, because he had 360* vision and could spot problems in the column. In our case it's probably because we're the most adept at laying traps and have decent ranged attacks that can cover the sides of the formation. >>42723639Similar to a Jetstream. He has a physical attack capable of finishing people off if it connects.Honestly, this is the least-bad formation I could think of with this team.
>>42723600>>B.Someone else should be movedChoji is a close quarters fighter. He should me moved forward; > C. OtherTenTen should mark us with the seal of reverse summoning
>>42723664Because we're fast enough to handle that position, and our Feedback makes it almost impossible to take us down by swooping.
>>42723723Yes, swooping is bad.
>>42723600>>B.Someone else should be moved"Shino should be in the rear. He has the widest sensory range, so he can best watch our back. And Choji, you're mostly melee specialised, right? Might be better nearer the front."SasukeChojiShikamaruTentenKonShino
>>42723752Is being king hard?
>>42723755Shino's "sensory range" has nothing to do with his position in line. If anything, he should be near Shikamaru to relay information quicker.Seriously. Shikamaru's lineup makes sense.
>>42723600>C.OtherAny reason you chose this formation?
>>42723600>C. "I noticed you made me rearguard. Should I be flattered or insulted?" Grin at Shikamaru so he knows we're just joking.
>>42723709Oh man, we could totally do a Jet Stream Attack with our team. Okay, Sasuke opens with a bright as hell Chidori to disorient the enemy, Kon follows up with a tight-beam Impact blast, then Kiba and Akamaru finish with a Fang Over Fang. We need to fight someone this way at least once, it'll be great.
>>42723600>C. Ask Sasuke if he's sure he'll have enough chakra to keep his Sharingan up the whole journey. Because that's what he's offering.
>>42723830That's not how Jet Stream Attack works, anon. To be directly comparable Kon would open with his attack, Sasuke uses fire release to hit after the dodge, and Kiba/Akamaru clean up with a melee attack.
"Wouldn't Shino be better as rear guard?" you ask. "He's got a much better sensory range than me. And I was thinking Choji could be moved forward too.""I had Shino up front for his tracking capabilities so he could help direct Sasuke as we move, but if you think Sasuke can handle it alone, we can make him rear guard."He draws a diagram on the other side.SasukeShikamaruChojiTentenKonShino"It's either this one or the first one." Shikamaru states. "We don't have any more time to waste.">A.This one is good>B.The first one was better
>>42723886>B.The first one was better
>>42723886>A.This one is good
>>42723886>>B.The first one was better
>>42723886>B. The first one. "You were right."
>>42723886>A.This one is goodDoes this bit really matter? I mean I assume we're just gonna get trapped in Jirobo's big cave thing.
>>42723886>B.The first one was betterFirst one. Shikamaru fucking thought it through.
>>42723931It only matters because anons are trying to out-think fucking Shikamaru.Seriously, this is what the guy is good at and we made him the leader for it. Just fall into the formation he thinks will work and wing it if shit happens later.
>>42723886>>A.This one is goodSasuke can handle it. And Shino is much better than we would be in the rear.
>>42724009Bullshit. Shino was better off right where Shikamaru put him for exactly the reasons he stated, and Kon should do just fine at the rear.For chrissakes, you're second-guessing the super genius here.
>>42723992Well, he's good when he doesn't let his plans get too complex. That shit with Hidan and Kakuzu was a mess, he could have solved that much faster if he didn't get so focused on giving Hidan an ironic death.
>>42724048We made him the leader. His first lineup was just fine, and he adequately judged and utilized his teammates' abilities.We absolutely should not be nitpicking his decision like this.
>>42723909>>42723922>>42723924>>42723952>>42723962"You were right, Shikamaru." you admit. "The first one was better.""Then we're ready to head out." Shikamaru says, as he tucks the paper away. "One last thing. I never talked to Hinata much. I can't really say I know a lot about her. But she's our comrade. A shinobi from the Village Hidden in the Leaves. And we're going to bring her back."As you leave, Shikamaru fills you in on his long term plan."We have the enemy outnumbered." he notes. "So in order to use that to our advantage, we're going to use a little strategy I like to call 'cascading'. They will likely want to break off one at a time to slow us down, so if they do, we drop two guys and keep moving. They double team the enemy and take him out as fast as possible, then catch up so they can help out farther ahead, further increasing our numerical advantage. Got it?"Everyone nods. From this point it all comes down to perception, as you all watch your designated areas.>Roll 6d100
Rolled 23, 51, 82, 29, 51, 22 = 258 (6d100)>>42724111

>>42724085I'm not. This plan's fine. But the one he made for dealing with Hidan and Kakuzu was just...so dumb. Seriously, Shikamaru, what were you thinking in that fight?
Rolled 72, 49, 7, 98, 48, 87 = 361 (6d100)>>42724111
>>42724127>>42724128>>42724130>Sasuke: "Just call me Odd Jobber."
>>42724170Kon didn't do too well, either.
>>42724191Kon is lower than Odd Jobber.
>>42724242He's also at the back, and our enemies are at the front.But yeah, I don't like being forced to roll for everyone.
>>42724111>31,82,84,65,75,30As you move, everyone keeps an eye out on their areas. You have trouble dealing with being rear guard, but luckily most of the team ahead of you covers for you and you don't have anything to trip up.Sasuke however, tired from his extended Sharingan use, falls out of it just in time to trip a hidden wire while crossing one in clear sight. Luckily for him, Shino was able to use his bugs to stop him just in time, but it slowed you all down.As you're stopped, Shikamaru notices some paper bombs attached to the trees."Looks like they set up a barrier seal here." Shikamaru notes. We've already lost some time, but we'll have to go around."As the group makes its way around the sealed area, Shino speaks up."My beetles have picked up the scent of blood." he tells the group. "In that direction. There was a battle.""But the trail these guys left behind heads on." Sasuke adds. "What do we do?">A.Everybody keep moving>B.Let's check it out>C.Send someone over to check, everyone else keep moving>D.Other
>>42724345>A.Everybody keep moving
>>42724345>C.Send someone over to check, everyone else keep movingUs, Tenten tags us reverse summon seal and after 10 minutes she brings us back
>>42724345>C.Send someone over to check, everyone else keep moving
>>42724345>C.Send someone over to check, everyone else keep moving"Tenten. Mark me, give me ten minutes."Assuming that's a reasonable amount of time.
>>42724345>D. "Shikamaru? You're the leader."
>>42724368Worked well before, do it againBut have her summon us back if the play deviates at all, like theres suddenly all of them together so its us v them or something
>>42724368>>42724345Works with me.
>>42724345>>42724368>>42724378>>42724403I'll back it.
>>42724368Honestly, we should use that technique when they try to cascade us.
>>42724345>D. "Tenten, put a Reverse summoning seal on someone. They run over and check, in thirty minutes she summons them."
>>42724432I think it would make more sense for Shino to be tagged, as he and his bugs may be bettrt than Kon at finding clues.
You know, I always found it ironic that the Hiyuga was all gentle fist, all the time. That vision range would combo extremely well with long range weapons like bows, and if they developed an Arrow Shadow Clone Technique they'd be killing scrubs so fast that people would wonder if the Flash was back.
>>42724523True, but if there are enemies there, we're better suited to hold them off and survive than the others.
>>42724368>>42724373>>42724377>>42724378>>42724403"Tenten, put a reverse summoning seal on me." you tell her. "I'll check it out, then you summon me back in ten minutes, or if you need me.""Well it worked like a charm last time." Shikamaru admits. "Let's do it."Tenten applies the seal onto you, then you take off in the direction Shino indicated.When you arrive, you see the forest destroyed by a battle. Two Leaf Jonin lie wounded from the fight. One with a scar across the right of his face, the other with a toothpick in his mouth.Neither of them look like they're in good condition.You approach one, and he speaks."Hey, are you chasing those Sound ninja?" he groans. "They're out of your league, you can't do it.">A.Ask what happened>B.Try to get them help>C.Other
>>42724523We should get Shino to bug everyone (ha, puns) with some female insects, so he can track us own if we get separated.
>>42724523Shino is also the tracker-in-chief for our team.
>>42724559>A.Ask what happened"Don't have a choice. Tell me everything you can."
>>42724543So what you're saying is that the Hyuugas have the specs to be God tier snipers yet they prefer to get up close and bitch slap fuckers to death?That's fucking metal, my opinion of Hinata has changed for the better now.
>>42724543Its Naruto. If they did shit that made sense, like 90% of the manga never would have happened.>>42724559A: Regardless of that, I have my orders and will carry them out. Is there any relevant intelligence you can give us before we face them?
>>42724559>B.Try to get them help
>>42724559>"Honestly after Kabuto and that giant fucking sand demon I'm not too worried. We've got a team of six, and could really use the support of some experienced Jonin though. Besides, they took one of our comrades with them. We can't just abandon her."
>>42724559>A.Ask what happenedGet the intel on the enemy team
>>42724559>A. Ask what happenedCould summon a monkey to give them first aid with our tools and we rush off to try and catch back up
>>42724624>>42724559Thats pretty good.
>>42724559"What intel do you have about their abilities."
>>42724559>>42724624This isn't too bad. Some of the wording is off but I like the message.
>>42724631>Could summon a monkey to give them first aidMight be nice, but we really need our chakra.
>>42724559>>A.Ask what happened"No choice. Tell me what you can.">>42724631Do we know any monkeys with medical skills?
>>42724720Yeah but with the medic monkey we could have 2 jounin to help
>>42724748I doubt it'd be fast enough.
>Already on best op Archttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Psr4rq-ICu8
>>42724624"Honestly, after Kabuto and that giant sand demon I'm not too worried." you tell the Jonin. "We've got a team of six, and could really use the support of some experienced Jonin though. Besides, they took one of our comrades with them. We can't just abandon her."The Jonin coughs up some blood, his toothpick falling out."Well you're not gonna find help here." he groans. "Those guys have the curse seal. They even transform to get stronger."Before the Jonin can tell you more, he passes out.Two more Jonin arrive at the clearing. You recognize one as Hayate Gekko."Genma! Raidou!" Hayate calls. "Damn, this is too much! We can't treat you here."Hayate and the other Jonin grab the two wounded ones and start to take off for the village."Kon." Hayate calls back to you. "Be careful."After a bit longer, you are summoned by Tenten and start moving again."So?" Shikamaru asks. "You find out anything?">A.Not much>B.They can apparently transform>C.They took out two Jonin>D.Other
>>42724559Oh, just wanted to mention, that if your taking suggestions for anime arcs to include, can I vote for the land of Snow? Basically taking over a country and installing a puppet ruler is always fun.
>>42724833>B.They can apparently transform
>>42724833>>B.They can apparently transform>>C.They took out two Jonin
>>42724833>B.They can apparently transform>C.They took out two Jounin"Shit's fucked, these guys are tough."
>>42724833>Hayate GekkoHuh, thought he was dead.

>>42724875No one found out Kabuto was a traitor here, so Hayate wasn't tracking him, and he didn't stumble on a secret conversation and get killed
>>42724833>B.They can apparently transformThey use a curse seal>C.They took out two Jonin
>>42724914Then we just told them about Kabuto. We have killed Hayate.
>>42724960No, because the invasion already happened and Kabuto already left Konoha. Hayate might die from something else, but it won't be because of this.
>>42724833>>B.They can apparently transform>>C.They took out two Jonin"They took out two Jonin. But they had to team up on them four to two and use a full curse seal transformation to do it - which means they're probably tired. Couldn't take out Jonin without the seals, so they're chuunin level at most without them, and they still needed to team up when using them to win. The cascading plan can still work - we just need to take them out before they start taking us seriously."
>>42724136Complexity addiction. Extremely smart people tend to overthink simple shit, and miss the easy solution.>>42724543Arrogance, pure and simple. They're PROUD of their Gentle Fist, and believe in what the greatest man to ever live called "the purity of unarmed combat".It's what makes Mari so dangerous over in Boruto Quest. She's got dem Hyuuga genes, but she was raised by TENTEN, so she is perfectly willing to drown your ass in projectiles.>>42724814>not posting the full songhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_iK5xd7Tl9U>>42724833>B.They can apparently transform>C.They took out two Jonin
"They have a curse seal that lets them transform and makes them stronger." you explain. "They were able to take out two Jonin, but we can still beat them if we can get them before they start taking us seriously.""We'll have to watch ourselves, then." Shikamaru replies.Up ahead, Sasuke stops. "I think I see them. They're all gathered in a clearing a little ways ahead. They might be resting.""So someone's got to go scope it out." Shikamaru states.>A.Let's surround them>B.Send someone ahead to check them out, everyone else hang back>C.Let's all go take positions nearby>D.Other
>>42725144>C.Let's all go take positions nearby

>>42725144>C.Let's all go take positions nearby"If Shino's bugs can confirm it's not genjutsu, I can take one out in a single shot... but it's easier if they're not moving."Try to take out the creepiest-looking one, or any of them that are wearing glasses.

>>42725181This, added with:"No offense, Shino."
>>42725144>D.Other"We must be careful. Even if the cursed seal takes a heavy toll on their bodies, they still managed to take down those jonins back there. There must be some kind of trap."

>>42725212Neji lived for a little while, anyway.He's still dead by the time of the quest, though.
>>42725091Actually that Arrogance and proud of the gentle fist thing is mostly fanon. Otherwise Hinata in canon, who has confidence issues and thus would be the last person with arrogance doesn't use other jutsu or arrows as well. What's more likely is the fact that as you get higher level as a ninja you see less projectile fighting styles being used due to the speed of combat being ramped up. Unless your are using senbon which are hard to see because of how thin they are, spamming the field with projectiles, or can calculate multiple trajectories in your head nine times out of ten you aren't going to hit say a Jonin level opponent with Kunai.Heck the entire reason a bow focused ninja was able to hit anything was because he had a method to control his arrows while they were in flight.
>>42725144>>D.Other"They have to know someone's coming after them, and they're all sitting right out in the open. So, trap?"
>>42725181This. We got that jutsu for a reason, let's use it.

>>42725532>Fuck You Beam?I have an idea for our wide-range blast upgrade
>>42725541The End is kinda overkill for a normal laser beam manMy preference is either Piercing Shot or Hawkeye Lunge
>>42725504Nice. Go get Pain, quick!
>>42725571>Hawkeye LungeWhat does this even describe?
>>42725560If that name actually makes it through, we could call the aoe version the Fuck Everything Blast
>>42725166>>42725174>>42725181>>42725220>>42725246Everyone carefully takes positions in the bushes nearby, as Shino's bugs go ahead to scope things out.You take a good look at the enemies. There are indeed four of them, and there also seems to be some kind of wooden tub covered in seals."I'll take out the creepiest looking one." you say, preparing your jutsu. "Do any of them have glasses? No offense, Shino."Shino doesn't laugh, and instead turns to you in panic. "The spider webs!" he calls.The moment he does, you feel yourself dragged into the air and thrown out in front of the enemies along with the rest of your teammates, their focus now entirely on you."Little bugs got caught in my web." says one of them with a smile.One of them, a large guy with orange hair, has already prepared some hand signs and uses a jutsu. "Earth Release: Earth Dome Prison!"The ground around your group moves and forms a dome around the six of you.From outside you hear the enemies talking. "You sure didn't waste any time, did you Jirobo?""There were a lot of them, and I'm real hungry.""Of course you are, you fatass. Well, we're leaving. don't take too much time."The six of you are now trapped in a dome of earth, with one enemy outside.>A.Try to break though the walls>B.Wait and see what Shikamaru comes up with>C.Try and talk to the Sound ninja>D.Other
>>42725591I still think it's better than The EndThe End is something that you name because it's your ultimate fuck you desperation attack
>>42725571It's pretty much killing someone by just pointing at the. I think something simplistic like that fits the name perfectly.
>>42725610>D.Other"Sasuke, find me the weakest point in the dome."Then follow it up with an Impact Release beam.
>>42725610>A.Try to break though the walls"Choji, get ready to hit the same spot I do."Then use a Shattershot to weaken part of the dome.
>>42725423There can be only ONE name for it.SHINING FINGER SWORD!>>42725610>D.OtherHave Sasuke find the weakest part of the dome, then Shattershot it.

>>42725610>>A.Try to break though the walls"Sasuke, find a weakspot. Everyone else, focus fire.">>42725621Hawkeye is okay. It's the lunge part that doesn't make sense. Lunge might make sense for a movement technique, but for a precision ranged attack?
>>42725610>A.Try to break though the walls
>>42725610"A bug ninja caught by a spider ninja. It's kinda fitting if you think about it."Try to talk to the ninja outside, then pew him with our new release while he's talking.
>>42725610Have sasuke find earth guy, beam him.
>>42725661"Shining Finger" actually would be a pretty good name for it.
>>42725661>SHINING FINGER SWORDFUCKING ACCEPTED.
>>42725691I'm not sure Sasuke can see through walls. Otherwise I'd be down.
>>42725610>>B.Wait and see what Shikamaru comes up withSooo that happened. Next time we look for spiderwebs yeah?
>>42725707Shining Finger for the single shot, Shining Finger Sword for a sustained beam we can sweep across an area.

>>42725725It's always the creepy looking one.>>42725741That's Byakugan's shtick, if memory serves.
>>42725741No, byakugan has the x-ray vision. Neji couldn't see through this barrier in canon anyway. He just saw the chakra flowing in it.
>>42725661For the sustained beam SHINING FINGER SWORD! For the concentrated sniper shot? The End.
>>42725610>D. Other"It's an earth technique, Sasuke if you wouldn't mind? Try find a weak point and Chidori it."

>>42725648>>42725675>>42725679You set off attacking the walls, in order for Sasuke to find the weakest part of the dome. Meanwhile, Shikamaru strikes up a conversation."Hey, can't you just let us out?" Shikamaru asks. "You guys can have Hinata, and we'll just leave.""Yeah, right." Jirobo replies. "I'm not letting any of you go. But feel free to plead for your lives some more."By this point, Sasuke has observed and found the weakest point in the dome. It's opposite where Jirobo's voice was coming from."This dome is absorbing our chakra." Sasuke states. "We have to get out fast. But it repairs itself, so that point is our best bet. Let's hit it with everything we've got.">A.I'll break through>B.Choji, you break through>C.Sasuke, you break through>D.I want to try hitting this guy from in here>E.Other

>>42725895Have Choji do it, shockwaves in enclosed spaces are bad news.
>>42726129Gather up a stupid amount of chakra in the fist, then punch the ground. Also works against Earth Style jutsu. Point is to fuck up a flat area.
>>42726177>Stupid amount of chakraM8 we are being drained of chakra right nowA way of leaving this dome without burning out would be better

Your release cracks the wall over and over, until it finally falls. The team rushes out as the dome collapses."Nice work, Kon." Shikamaru praises you. He makes his hand signs. "Shadow Possession Jutsu!"Shiamaru's shadow extends toward Jirobo, but the large man isn't amused."I don't like the look of that." he says. "So I'll get rid of it!"He punches the ground, and the entire terrain starts to crumble and break. Your team retreats to a distance and hides."We don't have time to waste here." Shikamaru whispers.

>>42726315Backing this. Choji took him on in canon, and Shino would be good as backup for this particular fight.
>>42726231>A.I'll do it>B.Suggest someone for itMe and Choji. For Kidomaru, Sasuke (burning webs and stuff) and Shikamaru, using the webs thin shadows. For Sakon/Ukon, TenTen and Shino. We'll probably be dne with Jirobo by the time someone needs help. Let's keep cascading those guys.
>>42726315This one sounds good.

Everyone else follow me."Shino and Choji nod and turn to face Jirobo, while the other four of you keep going.You readjust your formation. You are closer to the enemy than before, so the lack of Shino in the formation isn't too bad a flaw.Soon, Shikamaru speaks up. "Guys, we may have to adjust just a bit. If we keep splitting off two at a time, we're gonna lose Hinata. We have no guarantee that we'll finish the fights fast enough to reach her. And we absolutely can not let her slip away. So from here, we'll have to split off one at a time, and hold our own until the others cascade down.

"There have been no traps at all. They probably think we're dead.""Underestimating us, huh?" Shikamaru muses. "We could use this to our advantage. A transformation Jutsu into that bug guy would do nicely.">A.Sounds good>B.I've got a different idea>C.Other

>>42727566Kakashi's speed is 4.0 IIRCIf that's true we're as fast as kakashi status wise
>>42727507>Imma go with 'no'. Only reason Gaara survived is because he keeled over from plotitis before his attack could hit.That's one way to look at it. Another way is that Gaara's attacks had caused severe internal injuries due to the fact that bone armor wouldn't protect you against shockwaves, and he died from that when he tried to do something extremely physically strenuous just after taking a big hit. Which would also make us the perfect person to fight him, since our attacks are all about using shockwaves to cause internal injury.
>>42727452>>42727478>>42727485>>42727507You inhale and spin as the arrowheads approach. "Wind Release: Vacuum Wave!"The arrowheads are knocked off in other directions, leaving you unharmed. Meanwhile however, your enemy has hidden himself in the trees.An army of spiders descend and attack you.>A.Tag them>B.Stick to projectiles>C.Use a jutsu>D.Other

>>42727624>A.Tag themBlow them the fuck up
>>42727624>>A.Tag themThere is only one sane solution.
>>42727668We should take Kimimaro's body and research on his Kekkei Genkai, just like those Kumo guys tried to do with Hinata when she was young.
>>42727624>A.Tag themAnd use the explosion to hide. If he wants a sniper battle, i say let's give him one.
>>42727756>just like those Kumo guys tried to do with Hinata when she was young.When did that happen?I can't remember that shit for the life of me.
>>42727829Watch the Neji fight during the chuunin exams. The reason his father died.Kumo caused half his origin story.
>>42727829When she was three. "Ambassadors" tried to kidnap her, Hiashi killed them, nearly started a war because of it that was for some reason considered Konoha's instigation. That's why Hizashi sacrificed himself and Neji hates the Main Branch. Remember?
>>42727661>>42727666>>42727691>>42727711>>42727771>>42727785You jump back to get some space, and start throwing out your tags. The spiders are all enveloped in explosions one after the other.You start throwing tags out elsewhere as well, if nothing else, to at least give him less hiding spots.You try to hide yourself, but it never works for long before you're set upon by spiders again and forced to move.Eventually there are few spots left that he could be hiding, and the largest spider you've seen yet comes to attack you, spewing its webs, threatening to envelop you.>A.Dodge>B.Vacuum Wave>C.Shattershot>D.Explosive tags>E.Other
>>42727829When she was a child, Naruto helped to save her though he didn't know what was going on, one of the many reason's for her crush.
>>42727894Explosive tags! Explode all the things Art is a boom baby!
>>42727894>C.ShattershotReturn to fucking sender. Then tag it when it's down.
>>42727894>C. ShattershotLike it or not, we don't have much room to move now.
>>42727894>>C.ShattershotPoor spider. Ah, well.
>>42727894>C.ShattershotBlow it's brains out.
>>42727895>>42727873>>42727869Did that shit happen in this continuity?I would think no since Jiraya would tell said fuckers that wanted the Hyuuga Weird ass eyes to go fuck themselves.
>>42727973Jiraiya wasn't Hokage yet when that happened
>>42727894>D.Explosive tagsLet's make Uncle Deidara proud. Boom!
>>42727973Interesting.Plausible, even.Guess we'll just have to wait and see.>>42727998Or get word of Laze. That works too. Pity.
>>42727998Oh shitDid the Sarutobi from this continuity tell them to fuck off at least?
I really want Kimimaro KG. Shikotsumyaku + Impact Release would be the ultimate combo. Perfect mix of attack and defense. Teshi Sendan + The End/Fuck You/Shining Finger would be awesome. We need to study his body. It's the best way we can get on Orochimaru level and avenge Sarutobi-Sensei.
>>42728088>Lowering yourself to the level of the enemy>Lowering yourself to the level of orochibitchNigga do you even Will of Fire?
I just remembered that Kimimaro actuall met Haku and Zabuza before he found Orochimaru. Dude, that's going to be awesome.
>>42727917>>42727922>>42727932>>42727949>>42727952>>42727956You prepare your jutsu. "Impact Release: Shattershot!"The blast pushes the web back over the spider while knocking the spider down. You throw another explosive tag to finish it.As you used your jutsu, an arrow made of the same material as those arrowheads from before flew right toward where you were standing. Had it not been knocked off course, it surely would have killed you. This guy isn't fooling around. If you don't keep moving, you're going to die.>A.Try to flush him out with explosives>B.Wait for him to try again and deflect it to find his position>C.Other
>>42728168>C.OtherSummon the copy monkey whose name I forget to help us find him.
>>42728168>B.Wait for him to try again and deflect it to find his position
>>42728110If it's for the good of the Leaf? I'd consider it, assuming it was even possible.Hell, the Second was the one who created the reincarnation technique. It's a finicky moral line to toe.
>>42728168>A.Try to flush him out with explosives
>>42728168>C.Get moving and use explosives to flush him out at the same time.
>>42728168>C. Summon Sarujizo, have him help you saturate the area with explosives, keep on the fucking move.
>>42728168>C summon a monkey to find him and/or distract him.
>>42728168>B.Wait for him to try again and deflect it to find his position And>C.OtherTry to tag any web we find. If he uses it to jump around/move/track us, he'll have a nasty surprise.
>>42728184>A.Try to flush him out with explosives>>42728184What he said as well.
>>42728168>>A.Try to flush him out with explosives
>>42728194Hell, we'll use our enemy gun against him. And we would actually be doing a favor to Kimimaro. Even though he is on Orochimaru's side, he's a nice guy and is doing that out of gratitude and loneliness. We'll use his power to make right where he was wrong. We'll carry his will with us, burning brighter than ever.
>>42728221You quoted me twice.
>>42728184>>42728196>>42728207>>42728208>>42728211>>42728212>>42728221>>42728248>>42728258https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=daPo6q4FXDw&index=20&list=PL3AC39BCAE0A97F85You hurry and summon Sarujizo before he fires another arrow.Once summoned, the monkey looks around. "Let me guess, same plan?"You nod, and Sarujizo takes your form.While moving to dodge the arrows, the two of you saturate the landscape with explosives. The two of you eventually run out, but there isn't a single place for him to hide.You prepare for a fight, but you notice something. A familiar bug nearby.You smirk."What?" your enemy barks at you. "Just what is so funny? You still don't have a chance!"As he says so, Choji bursts in from the side, chakra bursting from his back. He lays a punch right on your opponent, who is knocked out cold."Hey, Kon." Choji pants. "I still had some time left over in this form, so I decided I'd help you out."Choji falls over, clearly spent. Shino catches up and explains Choji's technique."He'll be out of it for a while." Shino says. "It's regrettable, but we have to leave him here and keep moving.">A.He needs to get back to the village. Take him, Shino>B.You're right>C.Other
>>42728494>C. "Here. Help me move him under that rubble there. Place has a spider problem and I'd rather not have him get dragged off."
>>42728494>C.Other"Alright, but I don't want to risk his safety. Drain this jerk and make sure he doesn't wake up any time soon, then we'll move on."
>>42728494>>B.You're rightHide him though. Use markings leaf shinobi would recognize.
>>42728494>>B.You're rightBut first, we have to make sure spidey won't be getting up before Choji. Tie him up and drain him.
>>42728494>A.He needs to get back to the village. Take him, Shino"I'd prefer we don't leave the knocked out fatman in forest with possible enemys everywhere."
>>42728494>C. Cut the guy's throat before moving on, leave some rations for Choji when he wakes up.
>>42728552>fatmanThat will wake him up quick, pissed off and after your head. Bad idea to say that.
>>42728494>C.OtherPoint out that risking a life on a rescue mission doesn't really make sense, and that we're likely to be teleported directly to our next fight.Honestly there's time for him to fork over his explosives and tend to Choji's immediate needs.
>>42728640We should also use the time to recover any tags we can before we are called back.
>>42728695Also a very good idea.
>>42728526>>42728529>>42728533>>42728541>>42728545"You're right." you admit. "But we need to make sure that guy doesn't get up. Drain him.""My pleasure." Shino responds.As Shino sets on his task, you put Choji in a relatively safe spot, but one that will still be noticeable to anyone trying to find him.Before you can return to Shino, you disappear in a puff of smoke. When you reappear you see Tenten in front of you, seriously wounded."So she called in some help, huh?" you hear from behind you. "I guess she's not outnumbered anymore!"You turn to see two red men with horns. They must be the ones who Tenten fought."Maybe you'll be a bit more fun?" one asks. "That girl there couldn't dream of keeping up once we went to level two."Tenten looks out of it. She likely won't be able to fight any further.You'll have to fight these two alone.>End of Chapter 24Running again tomorrowTwitter is @LazeQMSticking around
>>42728748How's our chakra supply? I'm assuming we're out of boom tags.
>>42728783Out of tags, but your chakra is doing pretty good
>>42728801We're not completely fucked then.
>>42728748We mad as fuck now right?Also thanks for running LazeAlso archive this bitch
>>42728748Dangit, appeared too late to take part. Enjoyable reading to catch up though.Shining Finger = amazing name for the beam Jutsu.
>>42728801Enough to summon Enma and tag team these fools?Or genjutsu monkey.
>>42728748>you see Tenten in front of you, seriously wounded>They must be the ones who Tenten fought.>Tenten looks out of it. She likely won't be able to fight any further.So.Berserker mode?
Alone against Sakon/Ukon, the second most powerful member(s) of the Five? It's time for Kon to show them what he got! It will be The End for the twins. But, out of tags... That's a problem.
>>42728868I approve of this idea.
>>42728848You probably won't be able to summon EnmaAny of your other monkeys are fair game, though, easy
>>42728748The good news is, we are less screwed against these two than we would be against Tayuya or Kimimaro.The bad news is, Tenten's out of it so we have to fight two high level opponents by ourself while protecting her.Good thread, Laze.
>>42728936How good would Kon be using the Three Monkeys now?
>>42728868There won't be a body left to bury between the two of them.
>>42728892Shattershot the one on the left away, then behead the other by wrapping the Kyoketsu-Shoge around his neck and running Impact chakra through it. Then just Shining Lance Jutsu the one we hit with Shattershot.
>>42728868>>42728907So after we save her, can we go all grouchy tsundere and call her a dummy for not summoning us to help her out sooner?
>>42728868>>42728907I quite like the trope of 'our friend/loved one is in danger so lets get crazy', but surely it's a bit early for it just yet. Tenten is banged up and out of Chakra, but she's not as yet in a life-threatening situation.
>>42728801We really need to learn sealing so we can have absurd numbers of tags.Also, will chackra armor be a thing that we can abuse?
>>42728961We gotta summon all the monkeys and call ourselves King Kon. :^)
Got an idea for Kon to become super powerful.1: Learn puppetry.2: Get some puppet arms with metal plates on the end of each one3: Infuse our release into the plates, creating reactive armor4 Declare that he is fucking invincible5: ??????6 9/11 x 100
>>42728961First, we take their vision with See no Evil. Then, we shattershot them to get the twins away from each other. Blind and separated. Then, we go for The End/Fuck You and finish them.
>>42728992>not Donkey Konhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8KT7jcB72fQ
>Does mask monkey turned into a fully stocked Tenten or current Tenten?Because Tenten has scrolls and weapons for days we can get passed along.
>>42728968I don't know about tsundere, but if you guys vote for it, then I can go for it.>>42728981Pretty sure Tenten was about to get fucked up by Sakon and Ukon and summoned us as a last resort. Doesn't that count as life-threatening?
>>42728961He still doesn't have any battle experience with them, but he knows what they doMizaru's genjutsu makes them unable to seeKikazaru makes them unable to hearIwazaru makes them unable to speakThey work best in conjunction, if all three of them are out, they can stay indefinitely, if there is only one or two, they suck up more of your chakra to sustainThey also need to be kept from harm, as they're physically weak
The main problem here is their Hashomon. Any ideas?
>>42729034He hasn't seen Tenten before this, so he would turn into wounded Tenten
>>42729078Perfect. We summon the monkeys and tell Tenten to guard them.
>>42729083>>42729078Would a double headshot from the lazer be in order?
>>42729112He can't use our jutsu.
>>42729112>double headshot from the lazerI don't think we're enough of a heero to do pic related just yet, anon.
>>42729109He doesn't actually gain their abilities right?Because then we'd just have him imitate the old man and it would be over in a second.
>>42729083Fight them while they're deaf, mute, and blind? >>42729083Use the Genjutsu monkeys to line up headshots with Magic Finger.
>>42728748Can we open up with>"Oh great. Twins. Are they as creepy as most twins are?"
>>42729156He does not
>>42729078I'm so glad you included these guys.Will we be seeing a fourth brother? Shizaru. The no fun do no evil monkey
>>42729039> Doesn't that count as life-threatening?Only in the sense that every fight is life threatening. Be a bit overplayed if every time things looked shaky, Kon went full berserker. Remember what it took to make Naruto snap re: Hinata? She was thrown to the ground getting stabbed. It looked all over for her.
>>42729298There is a ShizaruHe can only effect people under the influence of all the othersNot to mention he's much harder to summon in the first placeMaking all four summons in a row is not easy on the summoner
>>42729311How about if Tenten were obviously beaten, but the guy was taking his sweet time kicking her to death?
>>42729377>He can only effect people under the influence of all the othersWhat does he actually do?
>>42729442Total sensory deprivation
>>42729477So we can literally become Aizen?Cuz if we can then everyone is fucked
>>42729311On the other hand Naruto was a moron.At this point it can't be a secret that there's at least the beginnings of something there that could provoke Kon to an unusual level of killiness.
>>42729477Oof. Nasty.Wait, is that all senses, or just the five? Because the second, while less than pleasant, is substantially less horrific than the former.
>>42729512>unusual level of killiness.Sure if by that you mean "I'll end your fucking shit you stupid vapid cunts" levels of mad
>>42729565Five senses+unable to sense chakra
>>42729617Hmm... So basically, fuck the Hyuuga clan sideways?
>>42729592That level of mad is just hilarious. When you stop sounding human, now that is scary mad.>>42729617Oh. Not as bad as I'd feared. Loss of chronoception alone would be terrifying.
>>42729617>We officially become Aizen in shippudenWill we say everything is part of our masterplan?Will we get the ever loving shit beaten out of us while saying that everything is going nice and dandy?Will we make everyone lose their collective shit when they realize that the guy that the enemy was beating the shit out of was in fact his friend?Will we be sitting in a couch while watching all of this shit unfold with our four monkey buddies while sipping on a martini?
>>42729592>fifteen years from now>Kon is semi-retired, making awesome fireworks and raising his five kids>some Hidden Stone Jonin come and try to kidnap one of his kids, to get their hands on his Release>don't succeed in getting the kid, but they do end up killing his wife>they get back to their village, and the Tsuchikage finds out what they did>he then informs them of just how badly they done goofedhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=soAofAWEpGU
