>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. And remember to have fun!>Quest Info:http://pastebin.com/qtVzCjWn>Previous threads:http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Leaf%20Ninja%20Quest
I don't care what anyone says!Karagowa Quest is BestBelieve in Impact!
>>42838092>Believe in Impact!Still not exactly excited. It literally seems like Wind+Lightning/2, while shit like Wood, Boil, Magnet, and Explosion do more than you'd expect on the face of them based on their components.
>>42838142True. But then, I'm sure Harashima had to work to figure out how to do the Sealing shit that Wood is so good at.
>>42838160I'm just talking about the basics. Wood release makes fucking living plants, like flowering trees that spew poisonous pollen and wooden spears that explode into trees when they hit you.
In the absence of Doto, Princess Koyuki had no reservations about taking up the position of the Land of Snow's Daimyo, with the support of Sandayu.The heat generator at the Rainbow Glacier was apparently incomplete, so the snow will come back soon, but Koyuki has plans to finish its development.Her attitude much better now, Koyuki saw you all off on a high note, providing autographs for you. According to her, she intends to both remain an actress and rule as the Land of Snow's Daimyo.Your team returns home, and over the next few months, continues on a regular schedule of relatively uneventful missions.During those months, you focused mainly on...>Choose an area of focus for your training. Training may potentially be done under an instructor>Choose two people to focus interaction with. Training with someone counts as interaction. You can also choose a group of associated people instead of a single person
>>42838185>Refining shape manipulation/elemental transformations under Kakashi>Teammates (who apparently can be counted as one) and Tenten
>>42838185>Focus on our Ninjutsu>Interact with Sasuke and KibaBros before hoes.
>>42838185another wind/lightning attack and summoning. willing to change the new attack with hand sign training. also hang out with sasuke and kiba, and kakashi. barely any interaction with him
>>42838185>Choose trainingRefining and possibly learning more about our Impact release techniques. What exactly happens with them and what can be done with them and what honestly happens when we Lance something?>Tenten (of course)>The Team, Kakashi, Sasuke, and Kiba. Occasional team dinners, maybe getting Uncle signed on as catering to Uchiha and Akamichi clan events once or twice, that sort of thing.
>>42838231>Sasuke and KibaSee >>42838185>You can also choose a group of associated people instead of a single person

>>42838185>Choose trainingRefining and possibly learning more about our Impact release techniques. What exactly happens with them and what can be done with them and what honestly happens when we Lance something?Except can we also do this with someone like Tsunade or Neji helping us? Neji would be great, as he can actually see our Chakra affect things. If there's someone better suited, we might be able to nab putting in a formal request for assistance researching our Kekkei Genkai. It's a project that's definitely worth allotting resources to.Also>Tenten>The Squad
>people still treating the team as separate individuals>stated clearly in the prompt they can be counted as one
>>42838185>Train our release and ninjutsu under Kakashi.> TenTen and The Squad
>>42838322What if you want to super focus on them though? Like you spend enough time with Sasuke to unlock an Itachi Social link?Anyway wondering about our release. Since we dealt used our shockwaves to expel the Sound guy from our body, could we use that to work out we could technically vibrate ourselves through walls and stuff?
>>42838223>>42838231>>42838235>>42838241>>42838242>>42838248>>42838263>>42838265During that time, you and your team do a lot of training together.Sasuke learns how to use more chakra natures in order to make better use of his Sharingan. He now has the potential to learn Earth and Water jutsu in addition to Fire and Lightning.After hounding Kakashi about it, Kiba gets to sign a contract with the ninja dogs. He develops several pack hunting strategies.You and Kakashi focus on your release. You know the basics of shape manipulation, but your teacher helps you really learn to mold your chakra."The way I see it, Kon." Kakashi Sensei tells you. "From this point, you can go two ways with shape manipulation. Offensive, or Defensive. You can either shape it into various forms to attack in a variety of ways, or shape it in a way that protects from attacks. For now, we should only focus on one and try to get it down.">Offensive>Defensive>Other
>>42838394>>Offensivekill them before we get hit seems better
>>42838394>Defensivei like the idea of using this for defense and traps/explosives for offense
>>42838443>>42838394I like the sound of that
>>42838394>DefensiveWe've already got a handle on our offensive options. I'd like to see what else we can do with it.
Before I forget, I was wondering if we could arrange some sort of exchange program for the snow shinobi. Their talented and future leaders youngsters could get a broader education and make friends in our village
>>42838393>unlock an Itachi Social linkSomehow I don't think it works that way, anon.
>>42838394>DefensiveI like what >>42838443 said
>>42838394>DefensiveThe Immovable Object of the Hidden Leaf.
>>42838394>OffensiveThe best defense is a good offense
>>42838394>>DefensiveWe've already got a pretty good offense. The fuck you laser is especially good.We need more resilience if we want to tangle with the big boys.
>>42838394>Offensivethe war crime of the leaf
>>42838493Maybe in the future, but right now they're more focused on relations with other nations that have Jinchuuriki, so they can put a stop to Akatsuki
>>42838394>Defensive.Force Fields, nigga.
>>42838394>DefenseWe need to amplify the feedback combination
Defense. We already have a couple good offensive ones, so I'd rather we get a decent defense and then continue making offensive techniques.
this isn't a votewith defense we can protect the whole village like the third
>>42838394>DefensiveI want a nice strong chakra shroud.
>>42838394So what happens when we hit something with a Lance? Does it just disintegrate? Get diced apart Rasen Shuriken style? Sent to another dimension? Do we just push a perfect cylinder of whatever we hit out of the target at stupid speed??
>>42838443>>42838470>>42838488>>42838489>>42838505>>42838512>>42838528>>42838572You decide to focus your training on defense. You learn how to mold your Impact chakra into a form that acts as a barrier, prohibiting passage through it. It's not made of material, so the duration is unfortunately short unless you keep pouring a ton of chakra into it, but it prevents most all attacks from passing though. You also learn how to cloak your body in Impact chakra, knocking back anyone that tries to hit you. This move also takes a lot of chakra and has a low duration, but it will likely improve with practice.You also spend time with Tenten during these months. She teaches you basic sealing like she promised, and now your access to explosives is more limited by your budget than anything else.Tenten, Ino, and Sakura have taken up basic medical ninjutsu training under Tsunade, who apparently leaves most of Itachi's treatment up to Shizune at this point.One day, you are called into the Fifth's office along with Tenten and Shikamaru."I'm a bit short handed right now, and I need to know if you three are available to volunteer." the Hokage says.>A.You need us for an urgent mission again?>B.Why is everyone else busy?>C.Stay silent>D.Other
>>42838789>A.You need us for an urgent mission again?
>>42838768>disintegrate>push a perfect cylinder of whatever we hit out of the target at stupid speedCombination of these two
>>42838789>D.Other"Nothing at the moment, sir. What's the mission?"
>>42838789>D.OtherOf course. But, uhh... Volunteer for what, sir?
>>42838812So basically like a high caliber bullet, then? Punches a hole through but creates a lot of mechanical stress in the process due to the shockwave pulping the flesh?
>>42838789>>A.You need us for an urgent mission again?"Volunteer? That bad, huh?"
>>42838789>"Is this along the same vein as last time we volunteered?"
>>42838789So basically we learned how to Powershield? If we can figure out how to release Impact through our feet to Wavedash we'd be set.
>>42838943And then we'd just need a big increase in stamina so we could keep the Impact cloak up for a long time and we'd be able to do nintaijutsu like A does. That would be fun. Especially if we could figure out the "accelerate nervous system with lightning chakra" trick.
So, how long until we can create two forcefields inside of a person's body and forcibly bisect them by moving those two fields apart from eachother?
>>42838822>>42838832>>42838846"Volunteer for what, sir?" you ask."The next Chunin exams are coming up soon." Jiraiya explains. "In order to show the world we've moved past the events of last year, this year we're doing a joint exam between the Leaf and Sand. However, most of my Jonin are away on other missions. I'd like you three to act as proctors for the exams. You'd be working alongside Kankuro and Temari again.""Fine." Shikamaru groans. "It's a pain, but the fact that you asked us means there probably isn't anyone else, so I'll do it.""I don't mind helping out either." Tenten adds.>A.I'll do it>B.Can you manage without me?>C.Other
>>42839091>A.I'll do it
>>42839091>A.I'll do itThis gonna be good.
>>42839091>>A.I'll do it
>>42838563True. On the other hand, Konoha currently has a ludicrious amount of leverage over Yukigakure right now for a bunch of reasons, so they might as well use it for something productive.said reasons being:1. Their new damyo has excellent personal reasons to hate them due to their ninja recently kidnapping her and murdering her parents in a coup.2. Their new Damyo also has excellent reasons to doubt their competence after the way their village elite got brushed aside by a group of Konoha ninja less than a year out of the academy.3. Said Damyo also likes and trusts the Leaf Ninja, and will probably be inclined to send them missions anyway.So basically, there in danger of going the way that Sand did pre-invasion, but probably much worse unless Konoha puts in a good word to Koyuki. Oh, and they probably need to find some new jutsu before the snow all melts. That's a thing.
>>42839091>A.I'll do it"I wouldn't mind working with them again."
>>42839091>A.I'll do it>C.Other"Has it really been a year already? Wow. Time flies."
>>42839091>A.I'll do itsounds interesting
>>42839091>A.I'll do itThis is gonna be fucking cool.
>>42839091>C. "Will there at least be a Jonin on hand in case things go like...well, like last time?"
>>42839091>A.I'll do it>Go ask Anko for ideas, It'll be hilarious.
>>42838142>seems like Wind+Lightning/2,We managed to vibrate whats-his-nuts out of our body. He had FUSED WITH US AT THE MOLECULAR LEVEL, and we were able to force him out.In theory, we could probably vibrate through walls, Flash-style if we practiced.
>>42839091>>A.I'll do itThis is going to be fun.
>>42839163You know, I wonder if she still has the curse seal in this timeline. They may have figured out how to remove it from spiderman, through the use of dangerous and probably unethical experiments.
>>42839171Alright, let me settle thisUkon had his head and arm sticking out of you, so they were most certainly separate enough to feel and focus Impact chakra into to vibrateUkon wasn't forced out so much as he separated from you so that he'd stop getting vibrated since it was causing him so much painYou didn't do any crazy molecule shit
Tfw no monkey land training
>>42839236Makes more sense than molecularly vibrating through walls tbh
>>42839281i was agreeing with him, but thanks for the link
>>42839310Meant to link it earlier, but got distracted.
>>42839099>>42839101>>42839105>>42839111>>42839114>>42839115>>42839118>>42839123>>42839130>>42839131>>42839163>>42839177>>42839225"I'll do it." you say. "Sounds like it could be interesting.""Excellent." Jiraiya replies. "We only have a few others available to proctor, so your help is very much appreciated. Now, I've told most of the other Chunin and Jonin, but this Chunin exam will pretty much be the last thing I do as Hokage. After this, we'll inaugurate Itachi, and I'll go off to train Sasuke, gathering any info about Akatsuki that I can along the way. So I'm hoping everything goes smoothly. Our relationship with the Sand also depends on this event."The three of you leave the office."I've got an idea for the written exam in my head already." Shikamaru tells you. "You mind leaving that to me?">A.I want to proctor the written exam>B.Sure, I'll proctor the second exam>C.Sure, I'll proctor the third exam>D.Other
>>42839375>C.Sure, I'll proctor the third exam
>>42839375>>C.Sure, I'll proctor the third exam
>>42839375>C.Sure, I'll proctor the third examMost interesting imo
>>42839375>>B.Sure, I'll proctor the second examGotta have a crazy entrance (that's tradition at this point right?)
>>42839375>B.Sure, I'll proctor the second examFunnest Event.
>>42839375>D.Other"Do you have an idea of where I would be best at? I really don't mind proctoring any of them."(Suggesting 'cause I don't mind any of those choices. They're all good with me)
>>42839375>C.Sure, I'll proctor the third examJonin exams when?
>>42839375>C.Sure, I'll proctor the third exami have no idea what to do though
>>42839375>C.Sure, I'll proctor the third examSave the best for last.
>>42839392>>42839402>>42839404>>42839411>>42839414>>42839420Eh, but you don't get to do anything inventive for that one.
>>42839445There are no Jonin exams, you just get promoted when enough Jonin put in recommendations for your promotion
>>42839375>>B.Sure, I'll proctor the second examWe're going to make such a beautiful deathtrap.
>>42839445we have been a chunin for like 1 month. can't be too far away
>>42839473is the third exam always a generic tourney? if it is, i would rather the 2nd exam
>>42839486>1 monthWe are literally doing the Chunin exams again. It's been a year
>>42839505Is it once a year? I thought it was a quarterly thing.
>>42839375>B.Sure, I'll proctor the second exam
>>42839392>>42839402>>42839404>>42839411>>42839414>>42839420>>42839445"Sure, I'll proctor the third exams." you say."So you'll be reffing the fights, then?" Tenten asks. "I guess that leaves the second exam for me."You three go your separate ways for now, as Kankuro and Temari will arrive tomorrow to clarify the exact schedule. It's late afternoon, but you could still go find someone. Now that you think about it, most of the genin teams can't enter three members.>A.Go find Shino, ask what he's doing about the exams>B.Go find your team, talk to them about the exams>C.Go see Ino's team to find out their plan>D.Go see someone else>E.Just go home
>>42839562>B.Go find your team, talk to them about the exams
>>42839535>>42839505its once every six months. and it was a hyperbole bruh
>>42839562>>A.Go find Shino, ask what he's doing about the exams>>B.Go find your team, talk to them about the examsMaybe those three could do it?
>>42839502...apparently so. Hopefully we'll be able to make it at least somewhat inventive. Maybe team matches with randomly generated teams?>>42839562>B.Go find your team, talk to them about the exams
>>42839562>>A.Go find Shino, ask what he's doing about the exams>>C.Go see Ino's team to find out their planWe're proctoring, and biased towards our team. Best to avoid anything that could be misconstrued as aid.
>>42839562>>A.Go find Shino, ask what he's doing about the exams
>>42839572>>42839579>>42839582>>42839584>>42839599>>42839615You seek out your team, and find them relaxing after a long day of training."Oh, hey Kon." Kiba greets you as you approach. "What's up?"You tell them about the upcoming Chunin exams, and express concern over their lack of a third teammate."Right, since you're a Chunin you can't exactly join us." Kiba thinks to himself. "Shino needs a team, right? He'd probably join us. What do you think?""Shino would definitely be a good addition to the team." Sasuke admits. "But do you think he'll go for it? He doesn't have any obligation to join us.">A.Just go ask him>B.I'll ask him>C.Other
>>42839599...that's actually a really good idea. Especially if we're aiming to improve inter-village relations. We could switch up the teams every round, so they'd have to observe all the other teams and figure out how to use their abilities to their advantage, and balance keeping their team aware of how they can help with the fact that they'll probably have to fight in a few rounds. In the field, you may find yourself working with people you've never met, people whose tactics and abilities will often be a complete unknown to you. This test will measure your ability to work with the unknown for mutual benefit, and the betterment of your village.
>>42839794>A.Just go ask him
>>42839794>A.Just go ask himThey need to do it.
>>42839794>C. "You could always ask. I'm gonna try to be a bit hands off 'till it's over though, since I'm proctoring the third exam. Oh yeah, Shikamaru's doing the first one and Tenten's doing the second one.
>>42839794>>A.Just go ask himOr try to get Kiba's boyfriend.
>>42839794>A.Just go ask him"You could always ask him. He seems really... logical. So he'd probably agree."
>>42839794>>A.Just go ask himLast time I'm telling you anything until the exams over. I am a proctor now.
We could hold a proper 'Third Exam last meal' thing. Bonding between everyone who got that far and stuff.
>>42839794>>A.Just go ask him>>42839833Nah. Ino's probably all over that to fill in for Shika.
>>42839794>A.Just go ask him i mean it's not like they could just go ask haku so shino it is
>>42839856>Nah. Ino's probably all over that to fill in for Shika.Doesn't mean we can't tease kiba
>>42839805>Three rounds>Non-elimination>Randomly assigned three-member squads>"Winner"(s) will be the competitor(s) with the most team wins>Passing will be determined by judge observationI like it.
>>42839945Throw in this idea >>42839848 and it'd be perfect.
How about a capture the flag kind of thing?
>>42839805great idea, i like it>>42839997that would be more of a second exam thing
>>42839812>>42839814>>42839824>>42839825>>42839830>>42839832>>42839833>>42839836>>42839837>>42839838>>42839847>>42839856>>42839858"You could always go ask him, you know." you suggest. "Anyway, that's enough from me, I am proctoring now."You leave your teammates to it as you head home. You get plenty of rest so you can meet up with Kankuro and Temari the next day.You're able to catch the siblings as they enter the gate, Tenten and Shikamaru also there."Hey, good to see you guys again." Kankuro greets. "I'm still a bit shocked we were able to convince our father to do this at all. So, you guys have your segment planned out?"Shikamaru explains that he has the first test all set up, and mentions that you and Tenten are slotted to help proctor the other two exams."I'll help with the first exam, then." Temari says. "Tenten, you'll need Kankuro's help for the second. I believe there's actually already a Leaf Jonin on the way to the Sand that'll be there to help with the third.""That means you two and I have to get going back to the Sand before the day's out if we want to make it in time." Kankuro says, pointing to you and Tenten. "So, let's relax for a few hours!"Your group finds a place to sit so Kankuro and Temari can rest.>A.How have you been?>B.Tell them how it's been going here>C.Say something else>D.Other
>>42840029>A.How have you been?

>>42840029>>A.How have you been?>>B.Tell them how it's been going here
I wonder how hard it will be to get the exam takers to treat us seriously? We're all pretty young for chuunin. Not the youngest there's ever been, I'm pretty sure that was Kakashi (He was entered at just age six. What the fuck, Sakumo?), but we're still going to be younger than most of the entrants. How do we get them to pay attention?
>>42839805Even better, if the competitors aren't allowed to watch the fights so they don't know what their potential teammates/opponents can do. Then they'll have to adapt to allies in the middle of combat.
>>42840029>Trade stories over the last year.I got a snowboard!
>>42840057>How do we get them to pay attention?Stick a fake explosive tag to the first one to act out.
>>42840113Nah this time let's make it a confetti explosive tag.
>>42840179Fine by me, but only if it makes a funny sound.
Think Konohamaru will be competing?Think he can make it to us? Betcha he just emulates the crap out of Kon. Pre-blood release.
>>42840202>Betcha he just emulates the crap out of Kon. Pre-blood release.Or he'll be Konaruto.
>>42840202Almost certainly not, no, and likely.
>>42840029>>A.How have you been?
>>42840029>A.How have you been?Alright guys, this is our chance.We just need to get Temari to slip and give up the fact that she's into Shikamaru, then we can make like Yenta.
>>42838394>After hounding Kakashi about it, KibaYou Sai now or something?
>>42840290His puns are ruff!
>>42840046>>42840051>>42840052>>42840054>>42840080>>42840089>>42840106Taking the opportunity to catch up, you start up a conversation."So, how have you guys been?" you ask."Well, they pretty much forced us into Jonin." Kankuro says. "Our manpower was down so much they had to give us emergency promotions to handle the workload. I'm not exactly proud of getting handed Jonin, but I guess I have to live with it. If the village needs me to take up more responsibilities, I will.""Our village's reputation has has been in the gutter." Temari adds. "Our association with the Leaf is just about the only positive relation we have at this point. Our father's been scrambling to keep the village's credibility up. But enough about that, how have you guys been?"You all share stories of the past several months. Kankuro and Temari listen intently to them, especially your mission in the Land of Snow. Temari is visibly jealous.After a while, Shikamaru and Temari get up."Well, we've got to get the written portion ready for tomorrow." Shikamaru says. "You guys should probably head off too."The three of you that remain get up and head for the village gate."Do we need to rush, or can we take a normal pace?" Tenten asks as you're leaving."If we get there sooner, it gives us more time to get ready." Kankuro replies. "But if you want to take it easy, that's fine. We could just work quicker when we do arrive. What do you want to do, Kon?">A.Get there fast, get the job done>B.Take it easy, we don't need to rush>C.Other
>>42840241I'm hoping Kankuro or Shikamaru does the same for us.
>>42840355>>A.Get there fast, get the job done
>>42840355>A.Get there fast, get the job done
>>42840355>>B.Take it easy, we don't need to rushWe could always sprint the last mile or so right?
>>42840355>A.Get there fast, get the job doneBetter to have some margin of error.
>>42840355>A.Get there fast, get the job done"You're the Jonin, but if I'm gonna relax I'd rather do it at your village."

It's a vast desert as far as the eye can see."Yeah, it's not much to look at." Kankuro says, shrugging. "But it's home. What are you gonna do?"As you approach the building designated for the proctors, you see someone come out. It's Anko."Hey, you guys the ones helping out with the exams?" she asks.>A.That's right>B.Are you going to be helping with the third stage?>C.Other
>>42840523>>A.That's right>>>B.Are you going to be helping with the third stage?

>>42840523>>B.Are you going to be helping with the third stage?
>>42840523>B.Are you going to be helping with the third stage?
We should have an Adventure with Kankuro and Temari sometime!
>>42840523>A.That's rightHi there, crazy snake lady (who's secret hobby is tea ceremonies, at odds with her wild child reputation). How are you doing?
Wait, aren't we still basic when it comes to Genjutsu? Why are we judging fights?
>>42840538>>42840539>>42840540>>42840557>>42840559>>42840566>>42840572"That's right." you answer. "Are you going to be helping out with the third stage?""Something like that." Anko answers as she munches on some dango. "I'm really just here to supervise. The Hokage thinks you guys can take care of most of this stuff.""Tenten, let's get the desert ready for the second exam." Kankuro says, looking up to see a messenger hawk in the sky. "The participants are already on their way here. Kon, you and Anko will be looking out for the participants. Only the first thirty get in. Stop the rest."With that said, Kankuro and Tenten leave. After a bit of rest, you and Anko station at the gate and wait for the participants.>A.Try and strike up a conversation while you wait (write-in)>B.Just keep lookout>C.Other

>>42840656Because people are idiots who chose the one test where we don't get to be inventive.
I have a brilliant idea, but it involves getting an even number of at least sixteen Genin.Go down the list of names alphabetically, using a random number generator to join each person with someone else, creating two man teams for the third exam. With two caveats.First off, the partner each person gets is NOT someone that they have registered into the exam with. Secondly, at the end of the tournament, the last pair will have to face off against eachother.The first part is to determine the person's ability to not only cooperate with someone they've never met before, but strategize with them, learn their strengths and weaknesses, and trust them in the heat of battle. Of course, they will have a whole month to get to know their new friend. This also has the benefit of fostering relations between villages by creating more inter-village pairs than is statistically likely.The second part is an acknowledgement of the fact that betrayal is a real thing in the ninja world, and the single hardest job that a ninja can get, the hardest thing they will ever have to do both literally and metaphorically, is fight someone that they once trusted with their life.Thoughts?
>>42840662>A.Try and strike up a conversation while you wait (write-in) "got anything to eat?"
>>42840792I LIKE IT
>>42840792Oh, also, the second caveat remains a secret until the very end.
>>42840792I'm down with it
>>42840792i like it even if its only for the long vs short term planning participants will have to do
>>42840792yeh i like it
>>42840792Well I like it, but I'm not sure how feasible it will be. We might not be allowed to do this, though
>>42840792>entire point is to foster better relations between villages>last stage requires betrayalIt's like you completely missed the point.
>>42840792I Like It
>>42840792I like it, but I think we should suggest it to the others before implementing the idea.
>>42840682>>42840683>>42840685>>42840687>>42840707>>42840709>>42840732You try to get a conversation going to break the silence."So, Anko Sensei." you start. "How have you been since the last exams?"She scoffs. "Well I'm not about to tell you about my private life, but I've been working some of the leads on Orochimaru. That guy you brought in, we got a bit of info from him, but his curse seal had some kind of fail-safe. Once he started talking about where we could find Orochimaru's hideout, the seal took over and killed him. We're not completely in the dark, but man did it set us back. That's why Lord Jiraiya is so anxious to get out of office. He wants to track down Orochimaru himself."After waiting a bit longer, you and Anko see some figures approaching."There's no way." Anko says, squinting. "No one could have gotten here this fast."The three figures approach the gate. It's a team from the Village Hidden in the Waterfall. The two guys are relatively unassuming with brown hair, but the girl in front is tanned with mint green hair and orange eyes. Her voice proves to be as loud as her appearance."Did we win?" she asks.>A.You did>B.How did you get here so fast?>C.Head on into that building and rest>D.Other

>>42840912>A.You did>C.Head on into that building and restAnd now we've got Fuu here. Both satisfying the waifufags and giving a tie in to the overarching plot if/when Akatsuki appears to come after her.
>>42840912>A.You did"Yes, you did. Your prize? More tests."
>>42840912Oh god, is that Fuu? That Anon who wants to waifu her is gonna flip his lid.
>>42840960Nah fuu fags can fuck off, Tenten's already the waifu.
Hold on guys, I have to run some errandsBack in a while
The seven-tails looks really cool.
>>42840987The fuck she is, who the hell wants a c-list waifu, in fact, can't we just have a quest where we get shit done rather than wasting time being neo/a/
>>42841025Nice contrary opinion there, bro.
>>42840975>>42840960Nah, she has more chemistry with Neji.
>>42841025Wow, shit taste AND salty. You are just an amalgam of shitposting aren't ya little guy...
>>42840912>A.>C.Also, when they're gone, ask Anko about >>42840792
>>42841020It looks so shitty.
BTW guys I was wondering about how we look fighting and our move set. I kinda imaging our tijustsu looking abit like the guy from this video...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0plnjolg53A&feature=youtu.be&t=87cause impact damage and burst of speed. On a secondary note moves, any ideas or new ones or concepts?
>>42840912>D. Oh hell. I remember the LAST time someone broke the record for the second exam...Hint hint: it was Gaara
>>42841020Fuu's Seven-Tails mode?
>>42841056Oh boy, nice buzzwords there, you ever think about spending less time on /s4s/.Since when was Tenten considered good taste
>>42841081It's "Shattershot", anon. With an "h".
>>42841104Pretty much the only leaf kunoichi that wasn't shit.
>>42841081I've put the idea forward for flesh/matter disintegration with shockwaves multiple times. Laze said it was possible, and it would be similar to sandpaper (though obviously accelerated) in its affect.
>>42841104I've actually never been on /r9k/, but I'm pretty sure 10/10 is usually considered a mid-top tier waifu.
>>42841120Do we have to settle for shit-tier leaf kunoichi
>>42841081>On a secondary note moves, any ideas or new ones or concepts?variant of heavenly palm, only we focus the chakra into our finger tips which we then stab into our target, which we then release it from inside for a large explosion
>>42841149No, since there's Tenten.
>>42841149Nope. Tenten's here.
>>42841149No since Ten outta Ten is here.
Hey guys i just got here what's going on this thre->Fuu's hereI swear to god this better not turn into princess guard otherwise I'm gonna lose my shit
>>42841103Nah, her transformation is actually kind of pretty. I'm trying to find a good pic of it but not having any luck. She grows Chomei's wings out of her hips, flutters around everywhere at high speeds.
>>42841081Gliding by using Impact chakra to increase the air density beneath us? Maybe get a standing wave going while we're close to the ground, let us zoom around like a hovercraft?
>>42841188Relax, that'd only be the case if this were Mist Samurai quest.
>>42841188Even after all this time.people are still fucking salty about that quest.
Should we try carding these people?
>>42841248It was that bad, anon.
We should carve cummoning jutsu onto our palms so we can just summon weapons easier, impune them with impacts chakra and just launch them, explosive kunai become damn missiles and not much chakra to use. Maybe set up a move where when we have all our wires and traps out we pass an electric current though it all making some nightmarish electro wire trap that arcs and explodes!
>>42841227>Mist Samurai QuestNever heard of it
>>42841283I think he's referring to five nations general. I think.
>>42841267Is Kabuto really a genin?
>>42841293... are you real?
>>42841283>>42841293Mist Samurai quest isn't real, because it's too lame to exist.
>>42841269Just let it go, man. Let it go.
>>42841311The hell was it about to make you refuse it's existance?
>>42841334Do I REALLY need to explain the joke? I hope you're not really that stupid.
>>42841334Because it was never a thing, because no one wants to play as a Mist Samurai when you could be a ninja instead.
>>42841192Ah, found it.
"You did." you tell the girl. "How did you get here so fast, though?"The girl smiles. "If there are new places to see and people to meet, I'll be faster than anyone!""Head over to that building and take a rest." Anko directs. "The second test should start tomorrow morning, so take it easy."The three of them head over to the building while you and Anko turn back towards the gate."I don't get it." she says. "They shouldn't have been able to get here for hours at least. They must have some kind of jutsu for this."As the day drags on, eventually more teams arrive. Second to reach you is Lee's team. They apparently ran all the way here with no breaks, and they still look like they can go on. Your teammates and Shino arrive soon after, followed by several other teams you don't recognize. The last three to make it in time are Ino's team, likely courtesy of Choji. Ino is irritated, but Haku looks like he's having a good time regardless.>A.Talk to Anko>B.Talk to someone else>C.Just direct everyone inside>D.Other

Once the others arrive, you inform them that they have failed the exam and have to leave.You and Anko go inside the proctor's building to find Kankuro and Tenten inside. They're resting after preparing the desert for the second exam.Anko immediately grabs some food and starts eating. You do the same."So, kid." Anko says between bites. "You got any special plans for the third exam, or are we keeping it simple?">A.Not in particular>B.Actually (write-in)
>>42841630You have to consider that it isn't likely that all the teams that could pass will.
>>42841647>>A.Not in particularBetter to keep things simple my first year doing this right?
>>42841647Well I was planning on trapping the arena they fought in. Budget and time permitting.
>>42841647>A.Not in particularIf it's not broken don't fix it
>>42841647>>42841630This have the teams be a mix of each village. The final is a 1 v 1 v 1 match with the winning team as the contestants.
>>42841647we could do the previously mentioned plan with 6 teams of 2
>>42841647>B.Actually (write-in)"I was thinking about a non-elimination team battle, with randomly selected three-member squads. Force them to observe each other, learn how to fight as a unit on the spot, and pass on recommendations based on proctor observations.""But I guess it all depends on how many people pass the next stage."
>>42841647>B. "I was considering doing a 'Five teams selected at random' with the caveat that noone can join with someone they signed up with. A three way death match at the end for the winning team.
>>42841647>A.Not in particularNot really feeling the team battle idea.
>>42841680>>42841684>>42841699>>42841731>>42841738>>42841771Why not lay traps all over the arena?
Can we NOT split the "winning" team up? It really goes against the whole "fostering cooperation" thing which is supposed to be a major aspect of the event.
>>42841647Liking the randomly selected team idea.'>>42841682OHH funn
>>42841785Because that'd only last one round before having to reset, or else it would heavily favor later rounds. And resetting between rounds could seem like we're showing favor by distributing traps differently.Just not particularly feasible.
>>42841786I'm down with the team battles but yeah, we shouldn't split the winning team up, especially since it's going to be a mix it means the likelihood of one village walking away with 3 Chunnins off the bat is low and keeps the balance of power
>>42841818But guaranteeing three chunins could mean too many ninja overall. Sometimes, you WILL have to fight people you once trusted implicitly. It's a good lesson to learn.
>>42841854And it runs contrary to a stated point to the exercise as a whole. Plus, the final assignment of promotions is usually up to the village in question anyway, and how an individual performs.See also: Shikamaru.
>>42841854yeah, let's do a big show of preparing for betrayalat an event that fosters cooperation and allied villagesafter the Sand betrayed the Leaf.
>>42841879>>42841883Then let's scrap the whole team idea entirely, do it how it's always been done.
>>42841854But the goal for the exam is to foster inter-village good will and repair relations making them fight at the end sort of ruins that message. I was just pointing out the plan doesn't upset the balance of power
>>42841854>emulating Danzo ever>good idea>pick oneDanzo did nothing right>>42841914I don't get your argument at all. Also, no.
>>42841914Don't be such a pissy little bitch, anon. The random teams idea is just fine without the betrayal aspect.It's not all or nothing.
"I was thinking about not doing single elimination, but instead doing team battles, where we switch up the teams between fights." you suggest. "We could see how they work with ninja they aren't used to working with.""I could see that." Anko responds. "We'll see what we can do."While you're eating, you hear a ruckus from outside. You and the other proctors rush out to find the girl from before dancing on top of a giant scorpion. Said scorpion seems to have been attacking Choji, who came outside for some reason. Several other genin have come outside to see what's going on.The girl sees you and the other proctors and rushes over to you."Hey, did you see that?" she asks. "Pretty cool, huh? So how about it, you want to be my friend now, huh?">A.You're not allowed to be out here, go outside>B.Did you save Choji?>C.I'm the exam proctor, I can't be your friend>D.Sure, why not>E.Other
>>42841914No, I want the idea to go forward, we're just ironing it out. It fits with the theme and is a twist, I wouldn't want to just watch our Chunnin exams all over again
>>42841923>>42841949>>42841961Too many chunin, regardless of which village, they are from, is bad.
>>42841976>B.Did you save Choji?>Thanks for that>C.I'm the exam proctor, I can't be your friend
>>42841976>B.Did you save Choji?"Where the fuck did the scorpion come from?"

>>42841976>D.Sure, why not>"Don't expect me to go easy on you in the exams though."
>>42841976>D.Sure, why notNow go the fuck inside, I'm still a proctor.
>>42841976>D.Sure, why not>E.Other"But please come inside, it's dangerous for you to be out."

>>42841976>>D.Sure, why not
>>42841976Did you save Choji?I can't make friends right now, as I'm an exam proctor, but after the exams are finished I don't see why we couldn't be friends. My name is Kon Karagowa, what's yours?
>>42841976>B.Did you save Choji?>C.I'm the exam proctor,>"you want to be my friend now, huh?"maybe once the exam is done
>>42841976>B.Did you save Choji?>C.I'm the exam proctor, I can't be your friend.Maybe later after the exam.Seriously tho is the giant scorpion a thing in this village?
>>42841976I can be your friend but atm im a supervisor , care to explain what your doing because attacking people does not come across as very friendly?
>>42841990We don't get to select the Chunin anyway, and the winners aren't guaranteed to become Chunin, so your argument is kinda pointless and invalid.
>>42841990From our exams there were at least 5 Chunnin that came out of it, the Leaf 3 and the Sand 2 and that was all done for inside the villages. I am willing to bet that if the 3 who would win here didn't display the qualities the Kage's are looking for it's entirely possible they wouldn't be promoted.
>>42842101Actually, those who win the Chunin exams become Chunin. It's automatic.
>>42842147Tell that to Shikamaru.
>>42842147>>42842158Just stop. it's not like we're gonna get that far anyway.
>>42842176We might, though you are right, the plan is moving forward anyways so no sense in arguing about it
>>42842047We're becoming a healthier, younger Hayate. The constant implied "god dammit".
>>42842047"Did you save Choji?" you ask, as she nods in response. "Thanks for that. But I'm the exam proctor. I can't be your friend. Maybe after the exam. For now, could you all please make my life easier and settle down for the rest of the night?""Sure thing!" the girl shouts as she turns around. Her teammates start to drag her inside as she is still shouting. "One down! I'm gonna get a hundred friends, just you wait!"All the other participants go back inside as well.The next morning, the second phase of the exam starts and the teams scatter across the desert trying to get each other's scrolls, just like in the last Chunin exams. You and Anko have hammered out the third exam, so there isn't much for you to do over the next three days.On the second day however, Temari comes to you with news."We've discovered something." She tells you. "That team from the Waterfall, two of their members are actually Jonin. That isn't the most surprising thing, however. We also discovered that the girl, Fuu, is a Jinchuuriki. We have to go confront them. Tenten and Kankuro are already on their way.">A.I'll come with you>B.I'll stay here and keep the exams going>C.Other

>>42842345>A.I'll come with youWe promised to look over them.
>>42842345>A.I'll come with youMight as well
>>42842147No your wrong did you even read the manga. Just because you win the tournament does not mean you displayed the skills necessary to advance. To advance you need to show those skills. All winning does is give you more of an opportunity to do so. The Kage are the ones who decide who to advance.
>>42842345>>A.I'll come with you
>>42842345>A.I'll come with you>>42842374That's what Anko is here for
>>42842345>C.Otheri think as long as she doesn't use he Jinchuuriki abilities it should be fine that she participates
>>42842452IC We don't know anything about the Jinchuuriki, so it'd be much better for her to fill us in about what they are and their abilities, then decide.>>42842345
>>42842452I think it should be fine as long as she isn't a sociopath. If she can finish the exam on her own I say she can go for it personally.>>42842473>IC We don't know anything about the Jinchuuriki, so it'd be much better for her to fill us in about what they are and their abilities, then decide.Dude, we beat the crap out of Garaa.
>>42842345>>B.I'll stay here and keep the exams going
>>42842473We know that Gaara was one and he turned into a kaiju that we needed a full team plus a Neji to beat.We don't have a Neji this time.
>>42842494Gaara was fucking insane, he is not what we're going to base our opinions of anything off.
I probably got back here too late to dissuade anyone from this team idea, but the whole point of the third exam is to allow each individual to be assessed on their individual skill. If they never have an opportunity to fight solo, how can they be judged in that regard?
I'd say we will come with since we said we'd be hr friend later, Anko can continue supervising. All we need to do is uncover why they are here if its just for the exam we say that she can continue but once eliminations rounds start her team mates must forfeit. We wont reveal this to avoid an incident and will let her team mate/body guards stick around (I sense trouble afoot).
>>42842535Gaara was a Jinchuuriki, and MurderNaruto is a Jinchuuriki. Fuu does not seem particularly stable-minded.
>>42842559Being hyper and super-friendly isn't the same as being a sociopath, anon. It's not even anywhere close.
Actually, now that I think about it, I can see two benign reasons for these Waterfall shenannigans.1) They're trying to get their Jinkuurichi out of harm's way.2) After Gaara was stolen, they suspect something and are using their Jinkuurichi as bait.
>>42842345>C. Ah. Let's disqualify the two of them and let in two Genin.
>>42842588No, but it's clear she's not QUITE right in the head, and our prior experience with Jinchuuriki tells us they can quite easily develop homicidal urges.
>>42842633She's practically the OPPOSITE of Gaara, anon. Quit trying to breed paranoia where there's no clear justification for it, you're not being clever.
>>42842633Only Gara murdered anyone. And we are fucking ninja killing people is a requirement.
Jinchuurikis... why did it have to be Jinchuurikis?
>>42842633By that logic Naruto(Kishimoto's) was the sickest piece of shit ever
Talk to them on the quiet, keep this down low. If this is a bait mission or a hiding the VIP we wanna know, we will let her continue but her body guards will "drop out from injury" and they may stick around to keep their job up. We need to ask Fu herself why she is her and say we wont let this out to avoid an incident.
>>42842676Jinchuurikis. I hate these guys.
>>42842662>>42842680The justification for it is prior experience. Are we going to ignore our experience with Gaara and Naruto?
>>42842683Pretty much this
Ugh... there's also the idea that this could be a trap. This whole thing could be a distraction...
>>42842392>>42842394>>42842408>>42842412>>42842414>>42842423>>42842448>>42842451>>42842463"I'll come with you." you say. "I promised to protect them.""We'll leave Anko in charge here, then." Temari responds.The two of you take off across the desert. You eventually run into Tenten, headed back to base. She's carrying both of the Waterfall Jonin."These two are in dire need of medical care." Tenten tells you. "I've got them stabilized, but they aren't going to last out here in this desert.""Wait, what happened?" Temari asks. "Where's Fuu?""Their team was attacked and Fuu was taken." Tenten answers. "It was Akatsuki. Shino had some bugs on Fuu, so he, Kiba and Sasuke are in pursuit. Kankuro is tailing them as well."A bug flies out from Tenten's clasped hand."Follow this bug, you should find them." With that, Tenten keeps taking the Waterfall ninja back.You follow the bug and eventually reach a small grove on the edge of the desert. The bug keeps flying, but you and Temari stop. In front of you is a battle. Kiba, Sasuke and Kankuro are currently fighting a member of Akatsuki. And from the looks of it, it's a losing battle.>End of Chapter 28Running again tomorrowTwitter is @LazeQM
>>42842701So Akatsuki can do what, kidnap Anko?
>>42842697M8 lets compare thenGaara was fullmurderhobo or felt like doing it most of the times we saw himNaruto we barely saw(Ergo we only saw him once)and just by looking at his eyes we pretty much saw a fucking demonFuu by comparison is like a harmless puppy
>>42842714Thanks for running LazeCould we take on Kakuzu with our current fighting force?Also who was Kakuzu again?
>>42842758He's the heart guy. Hidan's the troublesome one.
But we don't know that IC. For all Kon knows, Fuu could be one 'No' away from going full murderhobo. Our experience with Jinchuuriki puts us at a 'Beware Homicidal Tendencies' frame of mind.
>It's Kakuzu and HidanHidan, I like those odds. He's really a one-trick pony and he'd have a tough time setting up his little circle trick on shifting sand. But Kakuzu is bad news.So what exactly have our months of training netted us?
>>42842758>Who was Kakuzu again?He was the creepy guy who's body was half made up of tentacle-thread things. Had multiple 'hearts' which gave him control over all the elements for jutsu, and could split off as independent creatures.
>>42842758assuming we caught him unaware I'm pretty sure we could hit him with Heavenly Lance and basically just end him

>>42842794Honestly, Shikamaru must have gone full retard for a moment to not understand how to break up Hidan's ritual. I also bet Hidan's immortality doesn't quite cover a partial lobotomy.Can't think good if your brain is in two different places.
>>42842794We could hit one heart, certainly.
>>42842714>fighting a member of Akatsukiso are we actually able to win this fight or is this still act 1?
>>42842782This. She gave a good first impression, but it makes sense for us to be wary.
>>42842840It might be possible for you to kill Kakuzu hereMaybeGood luck
>>42842840"Winning" would be saving Fuu.
>>42842817Our Nin and Seals are 3.5 and 3.0 nowAwesome
>>42842714Do we know a seal that will let Ten-Ten reverse summon someone we tag?>>42842785Also, dude is probably crap against genjustu. Frog time
>>42842840We're essentially Jonin level, with a unique dual nature release and two elements. I think we'd stand some sort of chance. The real issue is that while we'd be fighting Kakuzu Hidan will be getting away with Fuu.So I don't think this is an engagement we're going to be able to "win", if winning involves saving Fuu.
>>42842898You do not
>>42842903>saving Fuu.That's the bottom line requirement for this "mission".
Ok plan for dealing with Kakuzu, we can go about this several ways but key points.1) explosives won't work he will just harden to resist however this can be used for an opening to give a chance to strike his current heart.2) While he is down decimate his body, maybe even cram a bomb in there.3) If we make it to the mask minions we have half of us keep him busy while the other half deals with the adds.4) If Hidan shows up lock him down and blow him to bits, atomize the head.5) nothing says if we lock down Kakuzu we cant smack an impact release or Heavenly Lance though each of the masks while he can't move however brief.
>>42842930Makes sense since Reverse summon became Tenten's thingAlso how the fuck did Jiraya take the news that some random chunnin learned and can use a technique that his student used? Said technique that only said student could use IIRC
>>42842903>The real issue is that while we'd be fighting Kakuzu Hidan will be getting away with Fuu.Thank god for bug boy.
>>42842942Then we're going to fail, because even if we kill Kakuzu or even force him to retreat, his partner will likely get away in the mean time. That's why they split up.I highly doubt we're saving Fuu. I want to, but this seems like a done deal.
Hey Laze does Kon have a bingo book entry yet?
>>42842976Kon's updated stats from this thread should be something like this.Ninjutsu 3.5Taijutsu 2.5Genjutsu 1.0Intelligence 2.5Strength 1.5Speed 4.0Stamina 3.0Hand seals 3.0
>>42842964A lot of people can reverse summonYou're thinking of FTG which Tenten does not know>>42842976Not quite yet, give it some more time
>>42842930Would she have a paper seal that we could slap on Fuu that would work? I would have asked her, but you moved so fast that we literally never got a chance.
>>42843023She doesn't carry seals around to put on stuffMaybe she should start thoughThat's some high-tier strats right thereAt that point, you might as well be using FTG
>>42842971Shino's going to be pissed you forgot him
>>42843005So IS there a reasonable chance to keep Fuu alive, or are we still basically on the Part 1 rails at this point?
>>42843066>At that point, you might as well be using FTGExcept for being much louder and slower, yeah. Also much more Chakra intensive.
>>42843078>Part 1 railsWe're not in canon anymore m8Also Shino is on Hidan's tail with his tracking bugs
>>42843078There would've been if we volunteered to run the 2nd Exam.
>>42843078You pretty much have to believe in Shino at this point, your hands are full right now
>>42843106Also Laze we chunnin now so can we get some chakra flowing kunai up in this bitch please?
>>42843101We never WERE in canon, first of all. Second, that has nothing to do with whether the situation is primarily a set piece or something we could conceivably win.
>>42843103Which would be a filthy way to run it, since that decision would have to have been pure metagaming.
>>42843132We could win against Kakuzu but it would take a fuckload of time to do itThat's why we gotta pretty much trust Shino to rescue Fuu while we're dealing with Kakuzu
>>42843128You could ask to get a chakra blade if you want
>>42843161Fair enoughAlso could we get a chakra blade only in kunai form or could we get in custom design in different type of weapon like a Wakizashi or knuckle claws?
Well Hidan said himself he is the slowest member of the akatski, have someone chase him down, blow him to bits, steal the head and save Fu.As for Kakuzu, lock him down and blast him in theory he probs underestimates use still so jumping him could probs get a few hearts. When he inevitably breaks out of our control method we switch to mobile warfare, get him into position for other to strike, if he spawns the adds have some on control and some on dedicated clean up of them.
>>42843161>"Hey guys, be right back!">Kiba and Sasuke get their shit stomped by Kakuzu>"Back, now I have a cool swor- what the heck happened to you guys?"
>>42843161iirc that just makes it easier. It's possible without a chakra blade for someone whose chakra control is naturally very good.
>>42843196You could potentially have it forged in some particular shapeMight take a whileAnd cost more
>>42843234>Chakra enhanced jockstrap possibleYes.
>Did I give you permission to run?>Did I give you permission to follow?This moment needs to happen.
>>42842960So he can harden and has different hearts that need to be struck... Maybe we can try the same shit we did against those creepy twins whose name I forget. I just remember that we were the dildo from hell. Let's be that again.
>>42843234Could we possibly develop a way to shoot a Heavenly Lance from each of our fingers simultaneously? Heavenly Barrage?Or maybe a way to make a single heavenly lance ricochet in the air, ala Rip van Winkle's musket?
>>42843300To be fair if we pour enough concussive force into him while hardened it would make it worse for him as he would reverberate more, it'd be safer for him to stay flesh or begin suffering large amounts of concusive damage and remember he may have several hearts but only one head, blow it away problem solved. So lock down and blow his head away with Heavenly Lance. That combo has the correct charka nature advantages, bypasses his additional hearts and gives us an advantage because he will still under estimate us.
>>42843234Arm guards, for use with Feedback.
>>42843371You would be dividing your chakra up between them to do so, but yesYou could control the direction of the beam with a lot of practice, it would use a significant amount more chakra though
>>42843420Like that arm guard thing that Krato's used in God of War 2/3
>>42843420we should get armguards, bladed knuckles, leg guards and some kinda small horned headband for headbutting
>>42843448>we should get armguards, bladed knuckles, leg guardsSure as long as it doesn't weight us down i'm game>and some kinda small horned headband for headbuttingNow that's just silly
>>42843422Welp, time to train stamina up to max.
>>42843234>And cost moreAre you actually tracking our money in any fashion?
>>42843481That is a really good questionStill getting a chakra flow Arm guard since it will make feedback will be godlike
>>42843481Let's just say it's a good thing you guys don't have any hobbies, cause you spend all your money on explosives
>>42843503And we still run out of thoseEither we're not being paid enough or we really go fucking nuts with the bombs
>>42843503Our hobby IS explosives
>>42843503But LazeExplosives IS our hobby~
>>42843522Those things aren't cheap you know
>>42843503>Let's just say it's a good thing you guys don't have any hobbies, cause you spend all your money on explosivesWe didn't actually use any explosives in the land of snow mission. Also, do we carry ice bombs?
>>42843522That's why we need to get promoted to Jonin. Higher rank means more money, more money means we can afford to keep fighting shit like Akatsuki.
>>42843528>>42843532Both of you saying it before I can. The hive mind thinks alike.
>>42843547Tell that to Konan.
>>42843547We're still buying Chakra flowing Arm guard right?Come on guys the feedback will have almost no drawbacks
>>42843547>>42843549Actually, a question. After our trip to the Land of Snow, have we had a chance to give Haku the snowboard and tell him about what it's like up north?
>>42843549>ice bombsNot a thing you have>>42843576You can, but it might be a while before it goes through>>42843580YesHe says it sounds like it could be fun to go with other peopleHe's no stranger to snow, but experiencing it with other people would be nice
>>42843417I actually don't know who it is we're up against, so I don't know how many heads he has, but your logic makes sense. I don't know who Fuu is either, except for the fact that she's apparently a super-friendly jinkuurichi who wants to make 100 friends.>>42843549...Hey, we should figure out a way to create impact tags. Like, they'd make an explosion, but with the potential to make a unidirectional burst on whatever they're placed on instead of an omnidirectional blast. That way they could be used like door charges or something.
>>42843621Did we bring back ice bombs? It seems like a good way to show him the joys of bombs.
Note to self: Order ice bombs next time we get the chance.
>>42843628We learned sealing from 10/10.We're not that good at it yet since we just learned it but with enough practice we could make Impact Tags
>>42843649If you mean those ones from the Land of Snow, no you don't have any. Besides, they work like their jutsu, they just manipulate the surrounding ice and snow
>>42843673If nothing else, we could trade them for explosives....Actually, wait... this is something we should probably ask about IC. Like, ask Jiriya or Itachi, or someone knowledgeable about adding potential ninja secrets to the economy. Would putting impact tags on the market be a bad idea at all?
>>42843684Has Haku trained in snowboard usage?
>>42843684Sarujizo uses fire release, iirc?If so open with bomb tags, using them as a distraction while we summon Sarujizo and combine a fire/vacuum wave technique. Could be good as an opening move.
>>42843745He has not tried it yet
>>42843759Dammit Haku, we try to bring you nice things...
Rolled 23 (1d100)>>42843787I bet he is a naturalLemme see what the dice have to say
Rolled 13 (1d100)>>42843856welp
Rolled 65 (1d100)Rolling for us shadow binding Kakuzu and them vaporizing his head with Heavenly Lance.
>>42843856>>42843883HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA
Rolled 21 (1d100)>>42843888hey thats not bad
>>42843913>>42843888>>42843883>>42843856Thank god we don't roll in this quest.
Rolled 41 (1d100)>>42843948Hey now we're sucking only nowWe'll crit when it really matters
>>42843948>rolling every time we use explosives>roll 1Yep, not the best quest to use rolls in.
>>42843787Hey, cut icebro some slack, we gave it to him practically yesterday.
>>42844174We got back months ago ICly
>>42844292I'm willing to forgive it. It's not like Haku's been around any large amounts of snow to try it with. Even with his bloodline there's only so much he can make, and setting up a proper slope would be pretty tiring. Wouldn't be terribly practical even if he did it, Konoha's in a tropical region. It would melt pretty fast.
