oh yeh im early this time
>>43858620What were the mad gains we made last time laddie
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a8rQ6JFZ4hQ&index=16&list=PL4C928EAF7AA5B906Even after learning how to balance Nature chakra with your normal chakra, you still have a long way to go. Your transformation lasts only a few minutes once you start moving, and using chakra depletes it even faster. Konohamaru meanwhile, can't even hold Sage Mode for a minute while moving yet."You two will be able to extend the time you can spend transformed with training as you improve your use of Nature chakra." Enma explains. "But it will eventually run out, and you will have to take the time to gather the Nature chakra again. Though there is a way to keep the transformation indefinitely. By temporarily fusing with one of us, you can move and fight while the monkey stays still and gathers the Nature chakra. We haven't had anyone able to use Nature chakra before so no one has practiced, but I'm sure you can find one of us that is willing to help. For you anyway, Kon. You Konohamaru, have far more training before we will even bother."From then on, you continue your training under Enma, but while utilizing Sage Mode as much as possible. The results are immediately evident, as you can keep up with Enma and all the maneuvers that were so hard before are now effortless. Two more weeks pass, and you are able to further hone your skill in your transformed state. Enma confirms however, that it will be far more difficult to utilize Nature chakra once you stop eating the fruit. You will have to keep up your training once you return.Nearing the end of your time at Kakazan, you think on what Enma said about Fusion.>A.You don't need it, you can make openings to gather Nature chakra yourself>B.Ask Enma more about it>C.Talk to a specific monkey about it>D.Other
So I've been playing tons of PSMD since it came out, and I think I know what quest I want to run whenever this one gets wrapped up>>43858712Well, you still weren't technically done with training yetI'll add them after this thread
>>43858737>>B.Ask Enma more about it
>>43858737>B.Ask Enma more about it>C.Talk to a specific monkey about itGather info from multiple sourcesEnma and the No evil trio
>>43858772>PSMDI have no idea what that is
>>43858807Pokemon Super Mystery DungeonIt's what I played yesterday instead of actually interacting with my extended family
>>43858869OhIs that any good? I didn't play the mystery dungeon series
>>43858737>A. You don't need it, you can make openings to gather nature chakra yourself.Konohamaru can have the need to summon. We'll solo this shit.
>>43858737>B.Ask Enma more about it
>>43858887Explorers back on the DS did some things better, but overall it's a step upEspecially if you like rougelikes, the game doesn't pull any punches and will fuck you up if you let it
>>43858737>A. You don't need it, you can make an opening to gather nature chakra yourself.
>C:Talk to other Monkey's get to know them maybe even make a new friend or two?
I've been thinking on why Kon didn't get perfect transformation while Konohamaru did and I came up with the followingMaybe it's because of Kon's incredible chakra control which that only works on chakra that was from his own body to begin with, which is why something alien to him like nature chakra is hard to get grasp on, while on Konohamaru(a more relaxed and not nearly as good with chakra control as Kon is) can use it more efficiently and achieve perfect transformation
>>43859019I could see that. Maybe the Third had the same problem.
Sorry guys, something came upGive me a few minutes, I'll be back
So, why do people want to make themselves with a handicap when they try to do Sage mode? Why not just learn how to do it ourselves?
>>43859097Because gathering nature chakra in the middle of battle is stupid since we have to stay still for long time to do itIt's not like we could make some shadow clones if we wanted tho...Oh wait we don't know that tech yet so we gotta stick with the monkey chargers for now
>>43859176True, but then we have to constantly worry about the monkey on our back.The literal monkey on our back.Why not just train it up until we can use it for hours (or even days) at a time on our own?
Hang on why dont we figure out a way to store it into tags like we did with our own chakra? slap one on us its a recharge, slap it on someone untrained turns then to stone?:
>>43859235This could also work.
>>43859235Nature Tags.Alright.get on it then.
>>43859233I'm not saying to not train itI'm just saying to use the monkey support until we can stay ssj4 for long periods of time
We should definitely attempt to get a second summoning contract (ideally with spiders) after we're done monkeying around here.
i think building up more jutsu is more important, finish 1 handed, learn some basics of each element
>>43859283If we can do both, I'm all for it. But if it's a choice between>You can learn to do it yourself over timeand>You have to summon a monkey if you want to do itI'm going with learning.
AND THEN THERE'S BORUTO QUEST
>>43859374Got a giggle out of me anon.
Sorry about that guys, grandpa got a kidney stone or something and I had to take him to the hospitalBack now and writing
Okay thenLearning Shadow Clone Jutsu when?
I think having a monkey do the nature gathering as a workaround is fine. I mean it worked for Jiraiya, and he was a freakin' Sannin.Finding time to pause in the middle of a battle to get some nature chakra by remaining perfectly still sounds... difficult to the point of being impossible.
>>43859523dude lets not be naruto
>>43859566We won't have to pause mid-battle if we devote enough time to training and gathering outside of Kakazan that we can maintain it for hours or days on end.
>>43859614Yeah but without regularly eating the fruits that goes from really hard to probably impossible
>>43859570Yeah but every jounin worth his salt and their mother knew the technique or a variant of it
>>43859488Holy shit. Kidney stones suck. My best to the gramps.
>>43859633Unless we train it regularly. Which we should do.
>>43859633Indeed. It's not like the the Hulk. "The secret is... I'm always [s]angry[/s] in sage mode"
Impact Clone Jutsu when?We cut out the middle man and just make exploding clones.
>>43858777>>43858786>>43858923>>43858973While you could try and train up enough to do without it, for now working with a monkey to maintain the transformation is a good idea. You can always keep training on your own.On the day before your last of training, you head over to Enma as soon as he finishes his time with Konohamaru. As Konohamaru heads off to sleep, you inquire to the monkey king."King Enma, can you tell me more about fusion?" you ask. "As I am now, I can't maintain Sage Mode for long, and until I train more I'm going to need the help.""Ah yes, that you will." Enma replies, stroking his chin. "Well if you were to summon me, I could gather Nature chakra for you as long as I remained in staff form, and you kept hold of me. Likely the same could be said of any monkey skilled enough to gather Nature chakra that could transform into something you could wield or wear. Though they would all have the same drawbacks. The Fusion technique melds two bodies, and you would not have to worry about being separated. Though like I said, none of us here have had any opportunity to practice it. It may take some time to get it right. You have options though, consider them all carefully."You think it over.>A.Can you gather Nature chakra for me?>B.I will fuse with someone (who?)>C.I don't need to fuse, I can wield/wear a transformed monkey>D.Other
>>43859675thats what im waiting on
>>43859681>D.Other"Who among the monkeys, aside from you, knows how to use Nature chakra?"
>>43859681Can we have mask Monkey literally become a mask for us? In theory he could also cast Jutsu like those frogs did effectively letting us combine natures
>>43859681>C. Mask monkey.
>>43859681>C. What if...instead of fusing with someone, I wore a monkey that was transformed? Like, as a mask?Sarujizo is second best bro.
>>43859681What about mask monkey? We could totally wear his mask and fuse with him!
>>43859657Our training is getting cut short as is because of the summit and if events are similar then we really wont have time for regular training at all, we have to have incremental bursts instead>>43859681Wasnt thinking about it until now but what if we go for Mask Monkey and Enma, become a fucking monkey king. The large ammount of nature chakras gonna be so handy
>>43859712And since his affinity is fire, and fire techniques mostly come out of the user's mouth anyway, no one would even know it was him using it and not Kon somehow casting two jutsu at once like a total badass.
>>43859681>>B.I will fuse with someone (who?)Sarujizo.We will become Monkey Mask. The Lucha Ninja.
Laze is there a cap to nature chakra?Just wondering because with Konohamaru being full monkey he wont benefit fom enma as much and having a staff and monkey mask at the same time sounds pretty cool
>>43859780El MONO LOCO!
>>43859681>D.OtherTry to learn the Fusion technique, but if we can't get it down in time resort to just wearing a monkey.
>>43859681>C.I don't need to fuse, I can wield/wear a transformed monkey
Wish we could copy Kiba's fang over fang with a monkey version now that we have our own beast mode. Then we could do a fang over fang over fang over fang. That's one fang and three over fangs!
>>43859712>>43859713>>43859717>>43859719After thinking, your mind settles on one option. The monkey with whom you've worked the most is one that specializes in transformation."Can Sarujizo gather Nature chakra?" you ask Enma. "He could transform into a mask for me to wear while he gathers it.""He can, though I cannot vouch for his skill in it." Enma responds. "But I'm sure a bit of practice will set that boy straight. One thing you have to keep in mind is that he can't use jutsu while transformed. Another advantage fusing has over this method. But it will be easier to implement. I'm sure you could try it now, even."Enma sends you off, and you find Sarujizo lounging on a branch. He creaks an eye open as you approach."What's up, boss?" Sarujizo asks, remaining stationary. "You've been keeping to yourself this whole time, must be doing some intense training.">A.Can you gather Nature chakra for me while I'm in Sage Mode?>B.Can you try fusing with me while I'm in Sage Mode?>C.Other
>>43859987>A. Then if not B.
>>43859987>C.Other"Yeah, sorry about that. I'm working on a much shorter timeframe than Konohamaru is, I'm trying to make every moment count. Anyway...">B.Can you try fusing with me while I'm in Sage Mode?
>>43859987I gotta say, although I think fusing would be more practical... wearing the monkey mask is way more badass.
>>43859987>C Hey man would you be keen to transform into a mask and assist me while I run Sage mode? You can pick the mask appearance
>>43859987>>A.Can you gather Nature chakra for me while I'm in Sage Mode?We can consider fusion later. Let's try this method first.Begin the rise of El Mono Aturdidor!
>>43859987Ask him if he at least wants to attempt fusion.I'm kinda curious to see what it looks like.
>mfw I managed to miss 13 threads
>>43859681>B.I will fuse with someone (who?)Genjustu MonkeysChance to meet fourth one?
>>43859987>B.Can you try fusing with me while I'm in Sage Mode?
>>43859987>A.We want the mask.
>>43860025>>43860038>>43860050>>43860065"Sorry about that, I'm on a time frame for now and I need to make every minute count." you apologize. "Anyway, I need your help. I could extend the length of time I can spend in Sage Mode if you can either fuse with me or transform and gather chakra for me. Do you think you could try it out with me?""You want my help, huh? Well I can't turn you down, boss." Sarujizo responds. "I don't know if I'm big on fusion, though. I haven't tried it, but it sounds weird. Plus I think you need more than one monkey for that. I don't know if I could do it on my own. I'll just transform for now, and we'll try that."You sit down and meditate to gather Nature chakra, then take on your Sage Mode. Sarujizo transforms into a mask in the shape of a monkey's face, which you then place on your own.You run around and expend chakra for a several minutes, far longer than you usually can, but you stay transformed."How is it, boss?" you hear Sarujizo ask, still on your face. "I need a bit more practice to keep it up forever, but I can last at least twice as long as this. So long as I don't get hit too hard.">A.This will work>B.Insist on trying fusion>C.Other
>>43860344>A.This will work
>>43860344>AThis will work, your doing awesome bud, wanna grab a fruit trying this out? (don't fuse if he finds it weird)
>>43860344>A.This will work>C.Other"Okay, this is going to sound dumb, but what if we got a second mask? Something armored, to go over you so we don't have to worry about a punch to the face knocking us out of the transformation. Would that work, or would that obstruct our view too much."
>>43860344>A.This will workIf we get hit in the face we have bigger problems.
>>43860344>C.Other"Let's try out some jutsu, first, see how much that strains us. I don't want to drain you dry the moment I use an enhanced Impact technique. And I REALLY want to see what happens to my Heavenly Lance when I add Nature chakra to it."
>>43860344>>A.This will work>>43860416This is actually a pretty good idea - we just need unobscured hearing and progressively larger eyeholes by mask layer. It's less perfect as a defense, but it's still a benefit while not causing us problems.
If we make a second mask out of Chakra-conductive metal, we can make a barrier to protect our face.
>>43860344>A.This will workAssuming we don't get hit in the face.
>>43860487It would make for a really cool visual, too, since Sarujizo likes to wear masks as armor. We summon a monkey who retracts into his chest plate to form a mask, which then attaches to our face and transforms us into our super mode. We'd basically be monkey Gurren Lagann.
>>43860519...I just noticed.We have our bracers/gauntlets. Ridiculous defenses. Obscure abilitiies. A horde of summonable minions. Strength, intelligence, and a deep-seated love for our country. And now we might be getting a metal mask.Do we have a cape yet? We should get a cape.
>>43860651We don't need a green cape.We'll have green chest hair.
>>43860394>>43860407>>43860407>>43860416>>43860429>>43860487>>43860487Even this is pretty good as far as it goes. Most fights you'd hope you could finish this quickly. Any more time you need, you'll have to train for."This will work." you tell Sarujizo. "The strain from using jutsu is already a whole lot less in Sage Mode. We'll just have to not get hit in the face."After a bit more practice, you head off to sleep yourself for your last night on Kakazan. As soon as the sun rises, Enma greets you."This is it, Kon!" he calls. "Let's have one last spar to see how far you've come!"You get down and start meditating, as Konohamaru wakes up and takes a seat to watch the spar. Once you've drawn in enough Nature chakra, you summon Sarujizo and have him transform. You place him on your face, and take a battle stance. Across from you, Enma does the same."So you managed something, eh?" Enma muses. "Good. Show me the results of your training!">A.Explosive offense>B.Stay on the defensive, try to counter Enma when he approaches>C.Attack enough to keep him moving and look for an opening>D.Other
>>43860730>C.Attack enough to keep him moving and look for an opening
>>43860730>>A.Explosive offenseIt's not really our style, usually. That's why it'll work.
>>43860730>A. Explosive OffenseLet's be honest, it's what suits our style best.
>>43860730>A.Explosive offenseLet's go for a Nature-enhanced Heavenly Lance. We can call it "Sage Art: Kongōsho".
if we don't end up with a technique called Monkey business by the end of this i'll be disappointed
>>43860772Are you trying to kill our master? Heavenly lance is a save or die kind of skill anon.
>>43860831His body is made of adamant, I'm sure he can take it.
>>43860730>A.Explosive offenseBoom bitch
Can we summon monkeys and use them against Enma or is that cheating?
>>43860754>>43860760>>43860772>>43860772>>43860780You've sparred with Enma for weeks, and you've usually kept it slow, responding to his attacks. Which is why you know this will work.You lunge forward and unleash a volley of attacks at Enma before he can dodge. Enma gets his arms up to parry, but in Sage Mode your attacks are far too strong. After several hits, Enma ducks and jumps back to safety."You're getting trickier." Enma says. "I'd never have expected that attack out of you."Enma dashes for you and tries an attack of his own, but you are able to dodge them all. You're kept on the move and can't retaliate, but this is leagues above when you first arrived. You can follow all of Enma's attacks when before, they'd seem to come out of nowhere.You pull a tricky move of your own and jump over his attack, kicking him in the face, a move you've never used before. You then land and start another flurry of blows. This time Enma responds in kind, and you both get pummeled.After a few minutes, Enma takes a knee and calls the spar. Just in time too, as Sarujizo is spent by this point, and you're short of breath yourself."Well done, Kon." Enma congratulates you. "I haven't had a spar get me this tired since Sarutobi in his younger days. Your training under me is as good as complete. Don't let that discourage you, though. I'll train more with you whenever you desire."As you're at the end of your training, you and Enma sit down for a real breakfast. Several monkeys have gathered a huge assortment of fruits for you, which you gladly sample. All of them taste magnificent, though it may just be in contrast with the fruit you've had to eat this last month."Before you leave Kon, I have someone I'd like you to meet." Enma tells you. He leads you and Konohamaru to a temple on the opposite side of the mountain. Next to the temple you see an impressive waterfall. The three of you enter the temple to find a monkey dressed in robes and holding a staff.>continued
>>43861236Are we about to meet the Victorious Fighting Buddha?
>>43861236https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GvEQE8pHH1U&index=45&list=PL4C928EAF7AA5B906"Lord Sarutahiko, these are our most recent contractors." Enma tells the old monkey, bowing before him. You and Konohamaru take the hint and do the same. "They have surpassed all of our expectations. Both of them can use Sage Mode to an impressive degree, where even Sarutobi could not.""Really?" the old monkey strokes his long beard. "Get a messenger ready for Myoboku. Hopefully that senile old toad can still read. He's been rubbing his students in my face for centuries. You two tell me, what are your names, and why do you fight? I always enjoy hearing from young ones. Surely you plan to use your strength to change the world, no?">A.Introduce yourself>B.I don't want to change anything, my strength is just to protect>C.There are things I will change with this strength>D.Other
>>43861363>>A.Introduce yourself>C.There are things I will change with this strengthnamely people treating Jinchuuriki's like crap
I plan to use the strength I had attained to preserve, protect and guide others, should I change the world it would be through sharing my will with others and showing them unity on the path I tread
>>43861363>A. Introduce yourself>C. There are some things I will change."The world is a fucked up place. In my experience, people won't help eachother unless someone with a bigger stick tells them to. So I intend to have the biggest stick."
>>43861417Fuck I thought I'd added the bit about introducing myself first, add that bit. Or say my name is not important what is important are my actions, as nice as it would be to have my name associated to them
>>43861363>A.Introduce yourself>D.Other"I don't know if strength alone can change the world. There are problems I seek to fix, yes, but I have no illusions that I can simply force things to be better. This new power I've gained will certainly help, as it will allow me to oppose those who would try to tear down what I've made. But I believe that only through understanding and communication will lasting change be accomplished."
>>43861435That sounds a little to agro for Kon, a bit to forceful, we are the great mediator, the balancer the ninja would has long needed
>>43861363>D. Not really. But there are people out there who want to destroy the things I hold dear. I need my strength to stop them.Also>Myoboku? Oh, hey, that's probably Sasuke. How's his Sage training going, by the by? He's gonna have a fit when he learns I have it too.
>>43861363>>A.Introduce yourself>>C.There are things I will change with this strength"There are good people that have suffered for far too long. Alone. And we just keep making it worse with constant infighting. I want to make a network. An end to isolation."
>>43861363Am I the only one imagining a monkey King Bumi right now?
>>43861363Oh guys.Dont forget to ask about 5 tail.They might know
>>43861363>A.Introduce yourself>D.Other"There are too many problems for one man to fix, no matter how strong. But I plan on doing what I can.">>43861558Four, not Five. Five is a weird dolphin/horse/goat thing.
Once we give our reason ask about the five tails, ask what his name was? Surly he had a name and was not really just a monster.
>>43861363>A.Introduce yourselfAsk about Four tails
>>43861594Ohhh shit yeah sorry
>>43861363>D. "I fight to see no evil, for no evil to be spoken, nor evil to be seen. I fight for no evil to be done.""Just like Mizaru, Kikazaru and Iwazaru taught me."I really wanna meet Shizaru though...
"Lord Sarutahiko, my name is Kon Karagowa." you introduce yourself while bowing, then look up to answer his other question. "The most important thing to me is to use this strength to protect what I and so many others have worked to accomplish. But there are a few things I'd like to change if I can. Connect people together, for one. So much fighting could be avoided if everyone wasn't so isolated. Like the Jinchuuriki. If they weren't so alone, it'd solve a lot of problems.""Oh yeah!" Konohamaru speaks up, quickly introducing himself. "Lord Sarutahiko, I'm Konohamaru Sarutobi. Do you know the four tailed beast? His Jinchuuriki said he lived here at one time.""Son Goku? Yes, I know him. He lived in the Water Screen Cave behind the waterfall you saw just outside." Sarutahiko answers. "He mostly kept to himself, though we would occasionally chat. He had quite the high opinion of himself, but in the end he was still captured by those shinobi all those years ago. But enough of that, you didn't answer my question."Konohamaru apologizes, and tells the old monkey about his aspiration to become Hokage like his grandfather and continue his will, which Sarutahiko praises him for. Once they finish, there is a lull that you may be able to pose further questions in.>A.Inquire further about something (specify)>B.Say nothing, take your leave>C.Other
>>43861697We should get a bunch of monkeys like kakashi has his hounds which are based on characters, just have them spam basic techniques at our foes and go sheer fire power mode
>>43861862>A.Inquire further about something (specify)The do no evil monkey
>>43861862>A. Do you receive messages from Myoboku regularly? The one there now is Sasuke, I believe. One of my Squadmates.
>>43861862>C what is this place, I've never seen it before, and pardon my asking but ughh...who are you? It's occurred to me that I've been neglecting my books...Otherwise well hopefully this is something you can shut those frogs up with, I know someone whom is training there as we speak
You know, it occurs to me that we need to get Sasuke a bird contract like he has in canon. If we can't do the Toad/Snake/Slug trinity of Japanese folklore, our team should do the Dog/Monkey/Bird trinity instead. Though Sasuke would have to get pheasants instead of hawks, if we want it to be really accurate.
Quick questionAre there any other differences other than visual to the perfect and imperfect sage mode?Does the perfect one get better control over nature chakra or are his techs betters?
>>43861862>>A.Inquire further about something (specify)Lord Sarutahiko himself. He's an important figure on the mountain. We should get to know about him while we have the chance.
>>43861862>A.Inquire further about something (specify)Where Kakazan actually is. Ninja talk of "summon realms", but there's little discussion of what that actually means. Is it all one alternate world with each summon family having their own territory, numerous small other worlds, or in fact part of our world and just distant and hidden from any humans?
>>43861862Can we check out the Water Screen Cave?>Dude! Son Goku left behind a ton of cool stuff!
>>43862095It would be pretty cool if we could find the original "Compliant Staff" that Enma's transformation is based on.
Wee need to let our hair get a tad wilder, maybe a piercing or two, outfit mods perhaps, really get the monkey thing going.
>>43861903The only thing you can think of right now is Shizaru. From all the times you've summoned the three other monkeys, you've never been able to summon him."Lord Sarutahiko, can you tell me about Shizaru?" you ask. "I haven't been able to summon him. Do I need to speak with him here on Kakazan?""Shizaru? Ah, him." Sarutahiko rubs his beard again. "He's a stubborn one. Whenever someone wants to summon him, he always makes them undergo a test of his design. Needless to say, you won't be convincing him to assist you with the little time you have left here. Perhaps another time."You and Konohamaru bow again and say farewell to Sarutahiko, then return to your usual training area."You should be going." Enma tells you. "You have a mission tomorrow, correct? Get some rest at your home, and I'll focus on Konohamaru for now. And when you have time, please return. We'll be waiting."Enma gets ready to send you back to the Leaf while you think of any parting words.>A.Say something to Enma>B.Say something to Konohamaru>C.Say nothing>D.Other
>>43862072It's the third, you can reach them through traditional means, it just takes a long time
>>43862273>A. Thank him for the training.>B. Tell him to train hard. Future Hokage needs to be strong.
>>43862273>>B.Say something to KonohamaruTrain hard, I want another Monkey Hokage before a second frog one
>>43862332Third, you mean. Minato and Jiraiya, remember?
>>43862303these followed by we'll be back before you know it>inb4 we appear in a god damn warzone
>>43862345Right right right
>>43862273 BELIEVE IT-DATTEBAYO!
>>43862273>A.Say something to Enma"I want to thank you, again. I'll try to do you and Sarutobi-sensei proud.">B.Say something to Konohamaru"And I know you will, Konohamaru. I've only got a partial transformation, you've got a perfect one. You're going to be amazing, kid."
>>43862273I wonder if summoning Shizaru will be our endgame training upgrade, then? The equivalent of Naruto getting Nine Tails Chakra Mode or Sasuke getting the Eternal Mangekyo. Though I'm not sure what he'd bring to the table that would be that strong, so maybe I'm just grasping at straws.
>>43862451He'll literally make no more evil.
You decide on a parting message for both of them."Thank you again for the training, King Enma." you say. "I'll try to do you and Sarutobi Sensei proud.""Don't you worry about that boy, you've already got a good head start." Enma laughs.You turn to Konohamaru. "Train hard. You're going to be the Hokage, right? So you'll need to be strong. You can do it, I know. We need another monkey Hokage before another frog one anyway.""Heh, yeah. I will train hard, don't you worry." Konohamaru assures you with a huge smile. "I can't let my subordinates be stronger than me, right? I'll pass you up soon enough."After your goodbyes, Enma performs a reverse summoning to send you back to the Leaf. You appear at the same training ground that you left from. It's still midday.>A.Go home to see your uncle, relax>B.Go see the Hokage, report in>C.Go see someone else>D.Other

>>43862674>>B.Go see the Hokage, report inBusiness before pleasure.
>>43862818>Business before pleasure.Speaking of pleasure...Is there like an inter-village mail system or anything? Wouldn't mind throwing a letter to Kurotsuchi just to keep in touch.
>>43862695>>43862722>>43862722>>43862751>>43862788First thing's first, you need to report in. You head to the Hokage's office.Once inside, you find Itachi speaking with Shikamaru."With the way things are, we're low on Jonin already." you hear Shikamaru. "We can spare a couple to guard the kid, but that's it. The prisoners aren't going anywhere, we don't have the manpower.""Wait a moment, Shikamaru." the Sixth interrupts, as you enter. "Kon, good to see you. Your training went well, I take it?">A.It did, I'm much stronger now>B.It was unfinished, I intend to go back as soon as I can>C.Ask what's going on>D.Other

>>43862919>D.Other"I got as much as I could out of the training. Now I've just got to get some experience using it in the field."
>>43862919>DVery well my Lord and I have reached a natural pause and so i can return at a later date,>CThings seem kinda heck-tick here, you been worked to hard shikamaru bud?
>>43862919Is Shikamaru wearing a Jonin flak jacket?
>>43862919>A>c.>D. still needs to be finished, but for now it's good.
>>43862942>>43862971>>43862977>>43863017>>43863018>>43863117"It did, Lord Itachi." you answer. "I got what I could out of the training for now, but I might return. So what's going on? Things seem hectic.""They are indeed." Itachi replies. "With the summit coming up, we're busier than ever. I've had to promote Shikamaru to handle the extra logistics.""Yeah, thanks for that, Lord Hokage." Shikamaru says sarcastically. "I have to figure out how we're going to deal with all this work. We can't send too many Jonin out, because the village needs to be reinforced while the Hokage is gone, but we need to spare some for Taiyaki. The whole thing is just a mess.""It's good at least that your training went well." the Hokage adds. "I'm sure you'll make sure the Leaf has a good showing at the summit.">A.Ask about something>B.Wish Shikamaru luck>C.Give Shikamaru a suggestion>C.Other
I swear to god if sasuke got perfect sage mode ill flip my shit.
>>43863353>A. What's the issue with Taiyaki?"
>>43863378>I swear to god if sasuke got perfect sage mode ill flip my shit.Of course he fucking did.
>>43863378as long as he has a public roll for it with the same chances we got its fine with me
>>43863353>C. Kiba promised he was gonna put some training in, and Sasuke should be back soon as well. Perhaps put them together, if I'm stuck at the Summit?
>>43863427inb4 he rolls a 1 and dies
>>43863353>C.Give Shikamaru a suggestionIt's going to be rather gauche to say this, but the fact is that we're not likely to be able to defeat Akatsuki if they come for Taiyaki in full force. We should instead focus on evacuation procedures, getting him away from them as quickly as possible. I can't remember, does Kon know that Minato's former guard learned the Hirashin from him? Because if so, they'd be perfect to watch him. If shit goes down they could have him and his parents on the other side of the continent in moments.
Oh shit, I forgot to eatBack in a while, guys
>>43863461This, that way the jonin can still be here or why not said both the kid and his perants to a summoned realm while we are out...Iluka and Anko missing ain't exactly a vast drain on resources
>>43863542NEXT IT'LL BE ERRANDS WON'T IT.WON'T IT?!!
So, who's ready to NINJASIT A BABY?
Idea: can we create a chakra domestic shield and we meditate within it, in theory if we absorb more chakra than the shields upkeep it can remain Indefinitely! Could also flood it with a healing aura with our excess chakraCall it the Serenity Dome
>>43863670I really like that idea. Very sage-y.
>>43863461An idea suddenly hits you."What about Genma and his team?" you ask. "Don't they know how to use the Flying Thunder God Technique? They could surely keep Taiyaki safe no matter what.""We usually keep them reserved for the most absolute of emergencies." Itachi replies. "But this is as good a use of their talents as I've ever come across. I will have them watch over Taiyaki. That way Kakashi is still free.""Hey, works for me." Shikamaru sighs. "Good luck at the summit, guys."Shikamaru heads off, yet more work to do, leaving you in the office with the Hokage."We can only hope Sasuke's training goes as well." the Sixth tells you. "You did well. Go get some rest. We've got a big day tomorrow.">A.Ask something else>B.Go home and rest>C.Go pick up your bracers>D.Go somewhere else>E.Other
>>43864135>C.Go pick up your bracers
>>43864135>>C.Go pick up your bracers
>>43864135>A.Ask something else"The family behaving? No coup, or secret rebellions we gotta worry about?"
>>43864135>C. Go pick up your bracers
Reminder of what our new gear looks like IIRC
>>43864287Except it's on both arms and we got greaves that cover up the knees as well.
>>43864147>>43864164>>43864180>>43864192Done here for now, you leave the Hokage to any business he has left before he leaves the village tomorrow.After leaving, you head to the weapon shop. After so much time, your order is sure to be in. You arrive to find Tenten behind the counter."Kon, you're back!" she calls out as you enter. "We got your order last week, it cam out really well!"She hands you a package, which you open to find your bracers. You immediately try them on to find that they're a perfect fit. You can know use your release in your entire forearm with little risk to yourself. They look pretty sleek, too."They're pretty good, right?" Tenten asks. "Just wait until you use them in battle, I'm sure you'll be stunned. In fact, you may just be inspired to come back and buy some more!"Tenten laughs as you pack up your purchase.>A.Do just that, order something else>B.Ask how things are going>C.Say goodbye and go somewhere else>D.Other
>>43864310>B.Ask how things are going
>>43864310>>B.Ask how things are going
>>43864310>B.Ask how things are goingShe said she thought she might have cracked her project by the time we returned. Did she?
>>43864310>A.Do just that, order something elsewe were thinking about ordering some stuff for konohamaru and his friends, maybe ask his two friends them what they would want and what konohamaru would like.
>>43864310>A.Do just that, order something else"Can I get a staff that can channel my ki as well? One that's retractable and can possible even split apart so I can use it as escrima batons."We won't have Enma on us all the time.
>>43864310>A.Do just that, order something elseKickass staff for when Enma is not useable.>B.Ask how things are goingWhat changed in the village when I was gone?
>>43864310>B. Ask how things are going.
>>43864310>>B.Ask how things are goingHow's that project coming along?
>>43864310>>B.Ask how things are going>>43864339>>43864340>>43864347
>>43864340>>43864339>>43864347How about we get a mask first so we can protect Sarujizo while he's being our mask in battle?
>>43864310Order three Kunai for konahamaru and his team members. Aside from that order maybe a mask for us to wear when not monkey moding it. Think Haku mask but steel coloured with the pattern engraved
>>43864376A mask for our mask? INGENIOUS.We must ask Kakashi the correct mask to mask ratio first.
>>43864376Yo dawg...It's still a good idea and I support it, though.
>>43864339>>43864340>>43864376That's a lot of money, but I want it all.Maybe we can ask itachi for a raise?
So I heard you guys like masks....
>>43864395That's a good point, Kakashi knows how to wear multiple masks at once. He can give us advice.>>43864421Get out of here, Menma, we've already got an evil Naruto.
Could we get chakra metal sandles? Use them to focus ki through our feet for impact jumps/kicks?
Tenten said she might make a breakthough while you're gone, so you ask. "How's it going? How's the village? You figured out that technique yet?""Oh boy, that technique." Tenten sighs. "I've had to go over everything I know about Space Time Ninjutsu. I'm going to be a master of it by the time I'm done. I can summon just about anything from anywhere if I've put a seal on it, but summoning myself requires entirely different seals. The Fourth must have really been a genius to work them out. I'm still trying, though. I've set up a summoning circle in my room that I can summon myself to, now I just have to make it smaller. I'm close. As for the village, things are pretty much the same as ever. We're gearing up for the summit, though. It'll be the first time Lord Itachi has left the village while he's been Hokage."Thinking again on your bracers, you decide to take Tenten up on her earlier offer."So I was actually thinking of ordering more." you say. "Maybe a retractable staff and a mask for me, some kunai for Konohamaru and his team...""Woah, hold on there." Tenten interrupts you. "I was just joking, don't go spending all your money at once. If you really want to, then at least keep it to one order at a time.">A.Staff>B.Mask>C.Gifts for Team Konohamaru>D.Nothing for now>E.Other
>>43864572>B. Mask>"It'll have to wait till after the summit anyways. It needs to fit over another mask."
>>43864604Staff I wanna shoot Lances through itJab someone with the end of it, point blank heavenly lance
>>43864572>C.Gifts for Team Konohamaru
>>43864589>>43864620>>43864625Am I the only one here who thinks a mask over the top of another mask is kinda stupid?
>>43864572>>43864620This. Aside from anything else, we'll need to get Sarujizo here. It's his mask - we wear him, he wears it.
>>43864654How would you have us keep Sarujizo safe, then? A helmet, maybe?
>>43864677Not get punched in the face?It's a pretty good idea even without a mask on
>>43864677Impact tagged mask.
>>43864698Are you retarded?
>>43864572>>D.Nothing for now
>>43864714Anything that hits the mask bounces right off.
we already have a lot of weapon options so why is it we need to rush out and get another right now, cant we just use our new gauntlets for a little while?
>>43864762That's not how tags work... At all.
>>43864572Mask. Mostly for just "so this is going to sound REALLY STUPID, but i need a mask to protect another, separate mask."
>>43864572>D.Nothing for now
>>43864823To be fair, we can wear the metal mask when the other one isn't around.
>>43864677Exactly like this Anon said>>43864697Not getting punched in the face. If we are getting smacked in the face I think we have bigger problems then losing our monkey-mask.
>>43864778Wouldn't kon want more toys?
>>43864872i'd rather blow our money on giant stacks of tags
>>43864839Yeah but when you put it like that the reaction won't be as funny.
>>43864886Either way I just want more toysWhether it's impact and explosive tags out the wazoo or chakra metal shennaigans
>>43864589>>43864620>>43864625>>43864671>>43864744If you can use it to protect Sarujizo while he's transformed, the mask is important enough to get first."I'll take the mask, then." you say. "It needs to fit over and protect another mask, though.""Uhh, okay?" Tenten responds, a bit confused. "So you want it ANBU style, right? I can get something worked out. It'll need a few weeks again."You help her out with the measurements, then pay and leave. It's still afternoon, but you're a bit tired and you'll need to be as rested as possible for tomorrow. When you arrive, you find your uncle lounging, and only a couple of people in the restaurant."Hey Kon, you're back!" he calls. "Come on and relax, it's a slow day for some reason."You take a seat by your uncle and spend the rest of the afternoon telling him about your training, taking a small break whenever you get another customer. He's as excited as ever to hear about your exploits. Later in the evening, you savor a nice dinner, your first real meal in a month, then get to bed early. You leave for the Land of Iron in the morning.>End of Chapter 46That's all I got in me today, everybodyRunning again on SundayTwitter is @LazeQM
>>43864989Did we ever get to see that movie with famous lesbian actress Yukie Fujikaze in it?
>>43864989Laze did we get gainz?
>>43865060We gained Sage Mode, isn't that enough?
>>43865087NopeWe should have gotten faster and stronger while we there
>>43865025You mean the one you saw before your mission with her?She has made two movies since then though, both of which you've seenThe director even got you in to see one of them for freeIt was pretty cool>>43865060You did+ 1.0 tai+ 0.5 int+ 0.5 str+ 0.5 spd+ 0.5 stayou guys are pretty much at endgame stats, you might get a little bump here or there, but you're almost capped out
So like I mentioned at the beginning of the thread, I was thinking of running a PMD Quest when this one gets done, probably in a few monthsWould anyone here read that?
>>43865138Sure, I fucking loved playing PMD as a kid. Planning on making your own plot, characters and everything? How would you manage dungeons, if you decide to add them at all?
>>43865114Wait so we're as fast as Lee is now??That's crazyWe're really looking good
>>43865138>PMDGoogle tells me that PMD is "PMD is a source code analyzer. It finds common programming flaws like unused variables, empty catch blocks, unnecessary object creation, and so forth."So... no. Unless it's not that.
>>43865114>you guys are pretty much at endgame stats, you might get a little bump here or there, but you're almost capped outThink getting any bumps is largely impossible. It is all down hill from the summit basically.Too bad we could not manage to master nature really.
>>43865162Yeah, the whole worksI was thinking of having the "hub" be like a university where you're in the archaeological department and you go into dungeons to find artifacts at first
We should really work on developing new impact jutsu
>>43865025>famous lesbian actress Yukie FujikazeWhere did that come from, BTW? It's cropped up before, and I'm still clueless.>>43865114Nice. So, does that put us at>Ninjutsu 4.5>Taijutsu 4.5>Genjutsu 2.0>Intelligence 4.0>Strength 4.0>Speed 4.5>Stamina 4.0>Hand seals 4.0Total: 31.5?That's really good. Top tier in everything but gen.>>43865138>>43865162>>43865216Never played PMD. I'll probably have a look in. Sounds interesting, though.
>>43865222Not sure if he has the time really. This is the last portion of the quest, I think everything wraps up shortly after the summit, in a few weeks. The last day or so of the war was 200 chapters.
>>43865317The summit has been bumped up, you realizeIn fact, this is basically a different summit
>>43865349Yo Laze we gonna have a Boruto Quest like we play Kon's kid or something?
>>43865349True, I am not sure on the time differences. Naruto sucked with time management and dates.
>>43865390Still not totally sureIt might be cool to keep playing as an adult Jonin with a Genin team too
>>43865423not sure if you would want to do so, but it might be interesting to play as one of our Genin's if we get to that point and make Kon a NPC
>>43865457Well I still have plenty of time to figure it out anyway
>>43865423Actually that sounds coolTrain a team of genin and then go grab a beer with dogman and sauce with gimp eyepatch to remember the good daysMaybe we'll train one of our kidsI still hope for 10/10
>>43865466Sounds like a good thing to do a sequel quest after you do your wanted PMD quest.
>>43865490for some reason i want to see a scene where our genins are getting beat by some missing-nin and we dynamic entry and cause him to explode from a punch.
>>43865490Actually all the members of your Genin team are already born
>>43865680well we're for sure getting the Jinchuurikiprobably Itachi's kidwho else?
>>43865893Asuma's kidYou know, the one that actually existed in canon
>>43865913Has anyone become Jonin we should know about, besides Shikamaru? Has Kiba been training?
>>43869349Maybe Kiba became the Dog sage?
>>43864310I just realized.>Just wait until you use them in battle, I'm sure you'll be stunned.>you'll be stunned>laughingsais.gif
Bump.Because why not?
