DRAGON BALL PARALLEL QUEST>Welcome to Dragon Ball Parallel Quest!>Something went very wrong at some point in Dragon Ball's recent past. You were probably supposed to stop it – but you didn’t. You awaken in strange surroundings, and quickly find yourself fighting for your life…>Stats (Power, Agility, Stamina, Intellect, Charisma, Ki) and dice (mostly d10+modifier) will be used.>Pay no attention to the d% rolls. They're probably not important.
Rolled 81 (1d100)>>45070424The only thing you can clearly remember is a whole lot of pain. Then absolutely nothing, just a somehow terrifying sleep for you can’t even guess how long. You see flashes – a man with lavender hair, an old woman that looks like a little girl, two blue-skinned, red-clad humanoids, a swirling red-black portal, falling forever…then a very painful landing, your head connecting solidly with a rock.You were supposed to do something. Something important. But it didn’t work. You can’t remember, though. You can barely even remember yourself…Okay, focus. Your fretful sleep is ending, and you have a funny feeling you’ll need to get moving fast…>A. “My head hurts…” [Earthling, +1 to two different stats of your choice]>B. “So…hungry…” [Saiyan, +1 Power, +1 Ki]>C. “Why do I even have pain receptors…” [Android, +1 Power, +1 Intellect]>D. “I sense something evil coming…” [Shinjin, +1 Agility, +1 Charisma]>E. “There’s some ringing in my ears…” [Namekian, +1 Stamina, +1 Intellect]>F. “My tail is killing me…” [Arcosian, +1 Agility, +1 Charisma]>G. “Have to pull myself together…” [Majin, +1 Stamina, +1 Ki]>H. “I can’t remember a damn thing…” [Roll 1d7 to determine race randomly]
>>45070424>>D. “I sense something evil coming…” [Shinjin, +1 Agility, +1 Charisma]Yeah, let's be a Kai.
Oh thank God, I really didn't want Majin and was only including it for the sake of completion. Anyway..>>45070443You open your eyes, and find yourself lying in a bed in a dark room. Getting off of the bed you lie on is a struggle, and not just because of the pounding in your head. You’re physically weakened for some reason, your every movement sluggish like you haven’t really used your muscles in days, or weeks – or longer. Still, you manage it, and are able to stand – you’re not helpless, just weakened. You take a look around the place.>THE FOLLOWING CHOICE WILL HAVE A PROFOUND EFFECT ON THE GAME. CHOOSE WISELY.>A1. “Why am I in a laboratory?”>B1. “Who's house am I in?”>C1. “Do I hear propellers?”You idly wonder how you got here, but that quickly becomes a question for later. You hear shouting from outside – the sound of fighting! Punches, kicks, even the distinct sound of ki energy balls being thrown around, just on the other side of the door. You’ll have to move quickly.>A2. Charge out the door! A good fight’ll wake you up!>B2. Listen at the door, see if you can figure out what’s going on out there.>C2. Take a few seconds to look around the room more.
>>45070503>B1. “Who's house am I in?”>B2. Listen at the door, see if you can figure out what’s going on out there.Not gonna wait for more people? I'm happy to continue playing but I'm sure other anons will not agree with my methods.They never do.
D. I want to see these people actually get to fight and win for once (Heroes is a thing to, but eh).
>>45070535We'll break for a moment, then.This is sort of my first time running a quest...
>>45070548Whoops that was mad slow of me. Sorry.>>45070503 A1, C2
>>45070567S'all good. I'm gonna try and run a power rangers quest soon, so this a good lesson for me to observe.Might wanna get yourself a tripcode so people don't post as you.
Never used a trip before. Hang on...
>>45070567>>45070535B1, C2.Fuck fighting, maybe there's evil ALL AROUND ME.
>>45070594Me neither! Let's see if I do it right.If not I'll look like a jackass.
>>45070619>>45070639Hey we did it! And I totally messed up on that last post.
>>45070503>>A1. “Why am I in a laboratory?”>B2. Listen at the door, see if you can figure out what’s going on out there.
>C. “Why do I even have pain receptors…” [Android, +1 Power, +1 Intellect]
Rolled 22 (1d100)Okay, long enough break to get things moving.>>45070503Maybe "room" was assuming a bit much, because as you look around you're starting to think that this might just be all there is to the house. There's a shelf with some boxes and a bed against one wall; and a chest of drawers against another, and various rustic tools scattered throughout the place. Light is provided only by a single large, circular window; it's evening outside, the sun is setting fast.Folded neatly and set upon a nearby chair are clothes that you know somehow are yours - a shirt with tight sleeves, a long jacket with flared shoulders, loose baggy pants, and a pair of sturdy and comfortable boots. You pull them on quickly.Outside, the sound of the fight is picking up. You hear an old man cry out in pain, and a mocking, sibilant voice hiss "Come on. You talked big, why can't you back it up, old man?">A. Charge!>B. Look out the window and play things safe.
Oh, you guys missed starting in either Dr. Gero's laboratory, or Emperor Pilaf's airship, by the way. S' too bad...
>>45070828>>A. Charge!Gotta help Grandpa!>>45070847Gohan is best anyways.
>>45070828>A. Charge!Kai senses telling me to help old people! Must. Help. Him. Cross. The. Street.>>45070847Eh. I actually prefer this anyway.
Love the fact that we're an actual fruit person.Wonder if we were a special golden fruit or a normal one?
Starting a thing where I wait 10 minutes between updates, then go with the most popular result. I was doing first-come-first serve but probably a vote is better.
>>45070918Hopefully a gold one.
Can we vote on names now while we wait?I say Kaizen! Geddit. It's a joke on the Saiyan's Zenkai. Plus it sounds like an awesome name.
Rolled 65 (1d100)Whelp, ten minutes. When rolling is involved then it *will* be first-come-first-serve since obviously averaging rolls together could throw everything off. >>45070828You might not know exactly where you are, but you know that good guys don't talk like that. Now that you're fully clothed, you charge for the door and out it.The evening outside is clear and starry, but that's not what draws your attention. Right in front of the door, so close that you almost trip over him, is an old, short man in a yellow jacket, picking himself up with a look of determination on his face. He seems surprised when he notices you."You're awake!" he said, then smiles. "Took you long enough..."Looking at his attacker, you're momentarily taken aback. He's a tall, green-scaled, winged monster of some kind, with a mouth full of fangs and a mocking look on his face."Excellent, more victims," he hisses, making 'come here' gestures with his hands. "What is it that you humans say? 'Come at me, brother'?">A. "I'm not human!" [you are male] [Roll a d10, your choice of physical or ki attack]>B. "I'm a girl, and I'm not human!" [you are female] [Roll a d10, your choice of physical or ki attack]
Rolled 6 (1d10)>>45071156>>45071156Best out of three rolls seem to usually work the best. >A. "I'm not human!" [you are male] [Roll a d10, your choice of physical or ki attack]>I AM A MAN! *super ki punch in the stomach!*
Rolled 4 (1d10)>>45071156>>A. "I'm not human!" [you are male] [Roll a d10, your choice of physical or ki attack]
>>45071202Hmm...kind of wanted to include the possibility of Disasters (1) and Criticals (1)...though I suppose that rolling three 1s in a roll would be pretty disastrous.Okay, best of three, then.
>>45071156...Aren't Shin-jin genderless? I guess this just determines our apperance.
>>45071247Well, they do show that they do have different genders.Which is weird since they are born from trees and not sexual reproduction...Supreme West Kai, the East Kai and of course everyone's favorite loli, the Kai of time are all feminine.
Rolled 7 (1d10)>>45071156>B. "I'm a girl, and I'm not human!" [you are female] [Roll a d10, your choice of physical or ki attack]>"Boring ki beam thing!"
>>45071247The lesser Kais, like King Kai, are genderless. The Supreme Kais, on the other hand, seem to have genders, or at least are referred to as masculine or feminine by each other and have definite masculine or feminine builds. It's weird, but there ya go.Vote seems to be going for male, anyway, so it's a moot point.
>>45071247They do have genders and can even fall in love and shit. The Supreme Loli of Time has a massive crush on Bardock, for example. >>45071291One of the Kaioshin heroes is Female too.
>>45071377Who wouldn't fall in love with that hunk of a Saiyan?
>>45071156You charge forward with speed that surprises the green monster, delivering a solid blow to the stomach that sends him skidding backwards, stumbling to his knees with one hand to where you hit him."Gyah!" he groans. "How - what the - YOU DARE STRIKE TAMBOURINE?!""Yeah, _____ does dare," you say.>A. Eiru>B. Faiya>C. Eruzu>D. Watah>E. Write-in"Tambourine" launches himself forward, opening his mouth and lashing out with his tongue! >A. Try to dodge! [Agility, Roll d10+1]>B. "If you're so hungry, you can chew on this!" [Ki, roll d10]
Rolled 6 (1d10)>>45071477>D>B
Rolled 6 + 1 (1d10 + 1)>>45071477>E. Write-in'My name is Watah!" (I'll go with it)>A. Try to dodge! [Agility, Roll d10+1]
>>45071558>>45071532From this you can probably put together what the other three were supposed to be.
>>45071596I got it.What no Heart option?
Rolled 3 + 1 (1d10 + 1)>>45071477>D. Watah>A. Try to dodge! [Agility, Roll d10+1]
>>45071477>E. Coldsteel the Kay>B.
Rolled 84 (1d100)>>45071477You fire off a ki blast at Tambourine and catch the monster in one wing, but the tongue still lashes for you. You're able to dodge it, fortunately, leaping to the side and then rushing forward again, a kick landing squarely against Tambourine's face and sending him flying - and also making him bite his tongue, which you can't help but smile it."Wath?!" he demands."Watah," you correct.Tambourine picks himself up, breathing heavily. "You bastard!" he hisses - and then grins, opening his mouth. A ki blast forms there - but at the last second, he turns his head and shoots at the old man! No time to run in and block it - time for your signature attack!>A. Maaching Fisshuzu! [Ki, Roll d10]>B. Bubaru Bubble! [Ki, Roll d10]>C. Hurukano! [Ki, Roll d10]
>>45071827I don't have any of the Supreme Kai's outfit pieces, unfortunately...
>>45071477>A. Eiru>B. "If you're so hungry, you can chew on this!" [Ki, roll d10]
Rolled 6 (1d10)>>45071827>B
Rolled 7 (1d10)>>45071827>C. Hurukano! [Ki, Roll d10]Hurricanes are pretty neat, and what the fuck is a "Maaching Fisshuzu!"?
Rolled 1 (1d10)>>45071827>>B. Bubaru Bubble! [Ki, Roll d10]We bubbleman now
>>45071886Hey my first one of the day.Fuck.Sorry Gohan, looks like you'll never meet Goku. We'll take good care of him for ya!
>>45071870>>45071827forgot to mention I picked the bubble move because it seems like it'd be defensive (like make a ki bubble to protect Gohan)
>>45071878I'd say "get out", but I want this Quest to have a lot of participants.Kids these days, not recognizing Digimon Adventure...mumble...grumble...
Rolled 10 (1d10)>>45071827>B. Bubaru Bubble! [Ki, Roll d10]
>>45071827>A. Let's go with Marching Fishes.They're pretty good defense and utility. And since we're a Kai, it kinda fits with being a defender of life and such.
Rolled 78 (1d100)>>45071827"Bubaru BUBBLE!" You call out as you throw your ki forward. The old man is wrapped in a field of blue ki energy that stops Tamboruine's attack dead in its tracks. You strain a bit at the effort, but once Tamboruine's attack clears, the old man looks no worse for wear - if a little shocked.Tambourine is, too. You get the feeling things don't usually survive that attack and he doesn't really know how to deal with it."Bubaru BUBBLES!"You use his shock to your advantage, at least. The bubble around the old man disappears even as two more appear in front of you and launch at Tamboruine. One smacks into his stomach, another his back. The first swings around to hit his knee, then the second his arm as he tries to hold it off. Finally, to close things off, both bubbles smack into either side of his head. The monster falls over backwards."What...is even...happening...?" he groans.>A. Finish him off. He's clearly a monster.>B. Spare him - it's not like he's a threat.
Rolled 5 (1d10)>>45072108D'oh, forgot to roll.
>>45071937TBh I thought it was like...Mach Fissure or something. Like a super fast water blast or something.
>>45072115>C. Ask the old man. "Should I kill him or spare him sir? He was attacking you."
>>45072115>A. Finish him off. He's clearly a monster.
>>45072115>C. Encase him in Bubaru Bubble and interrogate him>Okay, Tambourine, why are you attacking this old man?
>>45072115B. He's confused, so maybe we can do something more useful with him.
Rolled 62 (1d100)>>45072115You disperse the two bubbles you used to attack him, then create another around Tambourine, trapping him inside - you don't quite feel up to maintaining three at at a time yet. For that matter, you're pretty winded from the fight. Something seems off about that..."Oh my, thank you," the old man says, now recovered from his shock. "Bubaru Bubble, eh? Can't say I've heard of that technique before. Certainly seems to do the trick!""Thanks," you respond with a slight bow. "If you don't mind...who are you?""Oh, where are my manners," the man gives a wide smile. "Gohan's the name. Son Gohan."Son Gohan is short, barely coming up to your chest, and clearly ancient. Yet there's a vitality to the man, which makes you even angrier that he was being attacked by a monster like Tambourine.Said monster is now standing inside your Bubaru Bubble, striking it to try and escape. You're able to keep him in place."Why was he attacking you?" You ask.Gohan shrugs. "Well, you did just save me," he says, reaching into the folds of his jacket and producing a small orange ball with four stars on it. "He didn't say it outright, but he's a servant of King Piccolo. This is the only thing he could be after: my four-star Dragon Ball."Dragon Ball? You know about them - get all seven together and the dragon Shenron will grant you any one wish..."Wait wait wait," you say. "King Piccolo? But isn't he dead? He was killed years ago by...by..." the name is escaping you at the moment. For that matter, so are all the details...the downside to being 2,573 years old is that you get a lot of memories and it can be hard to sort through them (to say nothing about once you start climbing into the millions)...Or it *should* be, but you realize quite suddenly that you barely seem to have any! You remember your name, and your attacks, and little bits and pieces here and there about the Supreme Kai home planet, but...(cont'd).
>>45072633"King Piccolo?" Tambourine demands from within the Bubaru Bubble. "Dead? HA! What the Hell are you talking about? I don't care if you could beat me, you're no match for him!""Ah, ignore him," Son Gohan says, looking kindly at you. "Son, you hit your head something fierce awhile back. I came across you lying in a ditch with a lump the size of a softball on your noggin! Not surprised that you're a little confused...""I think you should explain things," you say, struggling to keep calm.Gohan lets out a sigh, folding his hands behind his back. "Well, it's late, and the company isn't very good," he nods towards Tambourine, "so I'll make it quick. It's the year 759. For a long time the Red Ribbon Army was making chaos all over the planet, hunting down Dragon Balls. Never did find them all, though. Then two years ago an evil demon named Piccolo was released from his imprisonment by some short pointy-eared fellow. He and his demon clan wiped out the Red Ribbon Army for the most part, then started looking for the Dragon Balls themselves."Gohan shakes his head. "The world's in a sorry state, I'm afraid.""Not yet it isn't," Tamboruine hisses, arms crossed within the Bubaru Bubble. "Once King Piccolo has all seven Dragon Balls - then your pathetic race will learn the true meaning of terror!""How long was I asleep?" You ask, rubbing your head."A year," Gohan says soberly, shocking you. "Surprised you can even stand, let alone fight like you can! You must have really been something if you're still this good even after a year of not using your muscles at all."After that, Gohan looks at his home sadly. "Well, it was good while it lasted," he said. "But I guess I can't stay here now. That monster might be pure evil, but he's pretty helpless right now, too. Can't just kill him, but once he's left, he'll be back with Piccolo himself.">A. Interrogate Tambourine more.>B. Offer to help Gohan move.>C. Offer to help Gohan defend his home.
>>45072923>C. Offer to help Gohan defend his home.Wait shouldn't we know what real demons are? Since evil Shinjins are sent to the makai world and all? >"Your not a demon, neither is your master. You may have negative energy inside of you but true demonic energy is much worse." CLEANSE HIM WITH WATER. PURIFY ALL THAT NEGATIVE ENERGY.Then Tamborine can be a good guy!
>>45073001You know, Gohan doesn't.
>>45072923>>45073001Can we do this? I vote to do this.
Rolled 23 (1d100)>>45072923>>45073139Well, you can TRY...---"You shouldn't have to leave your home because of these guys," you said, indicating Tambourine. "And they're not real demons.""Yes we are!" Tamboruine exclaims."No, you're not. You're Namekians. Mutants, in your case, but Namekians all the same. I might even be able to fix you...""Wait, what?" Tambourine demands, clenching a fist and spreading his wings as wide as his confines allow. "I don't need fixing!"You adopt a stance with one food in front of the other, arms spread wide and eyes closed. Admittedly you only - barely - remember doing this once in your two-and-a-half thousand years of life. And that was cleansing a rabbit of evil. And not even a particularly evil rabbit at that.Still, it's probably like riding a bike, right? Wait, you're not certain you've done that..."Bubara CLEANSE!">Ki, Roll d10. First three posts will be added together, Difficulty is 19.>IMPORTANT NOTE: This ABSOLUTELY will not work on everyone you come across.
Rolled 10 (1d10)>>45073359
Rolled 7 (1d10)>>45073359>IMPORTANT NOTE: This ABSOLUTELY will not work on everyone you come across.Thanks for taking my suggestion tho, appreciate it.C'mon Liam, lets cleanse us a mutant.
>>45073452>>45073461Holy shit. As usual, the DM gives the players an inch, and they run a mile.You only need 2 more!
>>45073504It'd be neat if we have Tamborine as our buddy. Training alongside us with Gohan in the Turtle arts and stuff.>inb4 1
Rolled 7 (1d10)>>45073359Please jesus
>>45073626Liam and Jesus working togetherThe Goat and The Lamb.Good thing we picked water. Trying to do this with fire, air or earth would've been a lot more difficult.Heart would've still worked tho.
*Sigh*. Yup.>>45073626 >>45073461 >>45073452The Bubaru Bubble collapses down onto Tambourine as the Bubara Cleanse (you've always wondered about that spelling change, perhaps it's a sign of an inattentive Kami or something) takes effect, the ki-created and infused water washing over Tambourine. Tambourine screams rather audibly at the pain of the water invading his system, before falling over to the ground. Hovering over him is a sphere of water shot through with evil energy. With a cry, you hurl your hands upwards, and the evil-infused water launches as well, shooting up and into space, where it will eventually be drawn into and destroyed in the sun. Probably.Right now you don't have a whole lot of time to think about it, as Bubaru Cleanse drains just about all the ki remaining to you. Before you can stop yourself, you fall over to the ground, joining Tambourine in blackness...
>>45073854Unfortunately, this ends Dragon Ball Parallel Quest 1.Wait, that doesn't sound right."1. A Strange Awakening! Watah Verses Tambourine!"There we go.Anyway, this unfortunately ends today's iteration of the Quest, as I unfortunately have to go to work. Still, you guys have now officially created your character and gotten things underway.>SELECT ONE ATTRIBUTE TO INCREASE: Power, Agility, or Ki (since those were used today).
>>45073999Thanks for running!>Ki
>>45073999I enjoyed this thread, good job.>Ki
>>45073999Ki!And thanks for the run.I suggest a pastebin for all our stats, abilities and items.Basically just do what Mama Kato does.
How does on archive? I would do it if I knew how...
>>45074173 >>45074031 >>45074036 >>45074053As soon as I figure out how to use pastebin (won't take long), I will. For now, you look like this.
>>45074349Isn't there a "Add thread" button on Sup/tg/?
>>45074449I dunno. Never used it.
