>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 young Leaf Jonin. Your character is defined by your choices, so write-ins are always encouraged. And remember to have fun!>Quest Info:http://pastebin.com/i69yvu3T>Previous threads:http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Leaf%20Ninja%20Quest
You wake up refreshed after your first night back in the real world, no longer disoriented from Madara's genjutsu. You eat a leisurely breakfast with your uncle, in no hurry to get anywhere right now. Once you finish, your uncle goes to the kitchen to get to work, while you think about what to do.Sasuke and the Hokage are having their operation later today, then they'll be blind for a while afterwards. The Kage are all supposed to meet in about a month to discuss strategy and sort out the organization of their forces, and Itachi basically gave you free reign until then. Whether you want to train or whatever, he has told you that he trusts you to be prepared when the time comes.Now the question is how to spend that time.>A.Go train alone>B.Go meet with someone (Specify)>C.Go ask the Hokage permission to go somewhere outside the village>D.Go talk to the Hokage about some other concern>E.Other
>>45847221could we get Tenten and go to Snow on a diplomatic mission real quick then teleport back?
>>45847221>>A.Go train alone
>>45847221>A.Go train aloneTry adding Water to a Rasengan. Prepare something powerful to use against each element starting with one of our Kekky-genki's weaknesses.
>>45847221>>C.Go ask the Hokage permission to go somewhere outside the villageNeed to see Enma for the last summoning, and learn more Jutsu (the frog sages taught jairya that shadow thing and such), plus need to check in and all that, time to get good while practicing our Sphere technique so we can control it at range.
>>45847221>>C.Go ask the Hokage permission to go somewhere outside the village
>>45847221>C.Go ask the Hokage permission to go somewhere outside the villageMight as well go see Enma and get some more training
>>45847276Firstly i'd suggest we finish our Unique Impact technique first, get it under control at range and also be able the throw them. But I think this is our last chance to get that "Do no Evil" Monkey.
We really, really need to lean to body Flicker while with Enma, then at impact chakra, get really good with it. Green Chakra, loyal to the end, great with body flicker, we can give itachi Shisui flashbacks.
>>45847334I've never really been big on Impact because of how hard it falls into the rock-paper-scissors system of elements: why focus so heavily on that when we can use all five elements and become the rock-paper-scissors master?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ukE2rwx7h0UThe last monkey is also a hard sell, because I don't know about you but I like to know what things do before chasing after them.
>>45847535I expect this to be our last uniquely impact technique, we just need it finished and then bring our others up to scratch which is just practice. That last Monkey is so we can complete the set and more likly have a giant summon for the coming Zord War.
>>45847278>>45847310>>45847330If you want to see the Hokage today, it'll have to be early. Wait too long, and he'll probably be under for surgery.You head to the hospital and get directions to the surgical ward, where you find Shizune checking over Sasuke and Itachi while a couple of assistants get everything prepared for the operation."Ah, Kon." the Sixth greets you, as his wife shines a light into his eye and examines it. "If you needed to see me, then this is good timing. We're just a few minutes away from the operation, and Sasuke and I will likely be put under for most of the day while Shizune here does her magic.""I still don't know why you wanted me to do this over Lady Tsunade, honestly." Shizune sighs. "I guess I appreciate your vote of confidence, but let's face it, I'm nowhere near her level.""Oh believe me Shizune, there's no one I'd rather have performing this operation." Itachi replies. "I can always trust you to handle me delicately.""Can we not go there?" Sasuke interrupts. "Let's just get this over with. Don't you two have a kid to get back to?""I'm sure Shizuka will enjoy a day with his grandmother. I'm not worried." the Hokage turns back to you as Shizune goes to check Sasuke. "Anyway, what was it that you needed to see me for, Kon?">A.I want to leave the village to train at Kakazan>B.I want to head to the Stone for a while>C.I want to go on a diplomatic mission to another village (Specify)>D.I wanted to talk about something else (Write-in)>E.Other
>>45847657I guess monkey training would be option C rather than A. If so I change my vote>>45847260and support>>45847330
>>45847657maybe we should impregnate one so the monkeys have a kekkei genkai they can use to protect/teach better?Laze, is it possible to breed with summons??
>>45847730>A.I want to leave the village to train at KakazanUnless there is a pressing diplomatic mission
>>45847730>A.I want to leave the village to train at KakazanIs this monkey mountain? If so yeah.
>>45847730>A.I want to leave the village to train at Kakazan>E. OtherWish him luck with the operation
>>45847730>>A.I want to leave the village to train at KakazanI want to learn a few more things from Enma ready for the War, get my final Summoning and hopefully finish my Impact Sphere technique maybe pick some new ones up along the way.Good luck to you both i'll be back as soon as I can, stay safe.
>>45847730>A.I want to leave the village to train at Kakazan
>>45847753don't even go there brah, besides we got a new Kekki Tota to breed with Kuro
>>45847730Make sure we ask him if he needs us for anything? Any on the down low missions for when we get back so we don't have to bug him, we just slip back in and go do it seamlessly and quietly.
>>45847890I'll support this as well>>45847730
>>45847774>>45847784>>45847791>>45847792>>45847797>>45847831You want to use the time you have to train some more. And the best place to do that is Kakazan."I want to leave the village to train at Kakazan." you explain. "I need to finish my training there. But I also wanted to know if you had anything you wanted me to do, Lord Hokage. Any missions for me.""I'd always appreciate your participation on any mission, but there are none that have to be done by you in particular right now." the Sixth answers. "If you wish to devote all the time you have to training, then by all means. I can just send Konohamaru after you if the time draws too close. Conversely, if you wish to come back to help, then feel free to do so. But don't feel obligated. I have plenty of other competent shinobi. You do what you think is best during this time. If you think you should go to Kakazan, then go right ahead. You have my permission.""Alright, you two are looking good. We're ready for the operation." Shizune says, as she finishes examining Sasuke. "Head on in and lay down on the tables.""Well, it looks like this is the last time we see each other for a little while, Kon." Itachi tells you. "I trust your judgement. Good luck with your training."You wish them good luck as well, and Sasuke and his brother head into the operating room. You leave the hospital. You are cleared to head to Kakazan anytime now. You could go immediately, or do something else first.>A.Go right now>B.Go tell your uncle you'll be gone for a while>C.Go talk to somebody else before you leave (Specify)>D.Other
>>45848206>B.Go tell your uncle you'll be gone for a while>C.Go talk to somebody else before you leave (TenTen)
>>45848206>>B.Go tell your uncle you'll be gone for a while
>>45848206>B.Go tell your uncle you'll be gone for a while>C.Go talk to somebody else before you leave (TenTen, Kiba, Kakashi)
>>45848206>>B.Go tell your uncle you'll be gone for a while>>C.Go talk to somebody else before you leave (Tenten, Kiba, Akamaru, Kakashi, Neji)
>>45848206>B.Go tell your uncle you'll be gone for a while
>>45848206>didn't even talk to best bro>B.Go tell your uncle you'll be gone for a while>C.Go talk to somebody else before you leave (Specify)Tell Kiba, Tens, and Konohamaru we're leaving too
>>45848266Konohamaru should probably stay in case Itachi needs to send him to get us. Taking him invites an attack we cant assist with
>>45848206>B.>C.Say bye to Uncle, invite Konohamaru, and talk to Tenten.
>>45848311Doesn't TenTen have a summoning seal on us?
>>45848206>B.Go tell your uncle you'll be gone for a while>C.Go talk to somebody else before you leave (Tenten, Kiba, Konohamaru)Is there anyone else important that we're forgetting?>probably
>>45848206>>B.Go tell your uncle you'll be gone for a while>C.Go talk to somebody else before you leave (Tenten)Say we are off for a bit, wish her luck and we hope to be back soon enough though, Swing by Kakashi's place we aint seen him since the Three Tails Mind reading, make sure he's ok.
>>45848342I thought it was on a weapon and not necessarily us directly
>>45848463Yeah, it's on the sheath of the sword that we carry everywhere despite the fact that it's actually broken.
>>45848463It's on the scabbard of our (now-destroyed) sword. We can probably cut the seal part out and just carry that around.
>>45848517That actually sounds like a pretty neat idea.
>>45848517Turn it into a bracer or something
>>45848249>>45848269>>45848281>>45848286>>45848292>>45848297>>45848315>>45848376>>45848394You have a few people you want to let know you're leaving. First thing's first, you head back to the restaurant. You grab a couple of things for the trip, and tell your uncle that you're going off to train for a while. He wishes you luck and tells you that he can hold things down here just fine.After that, you track down Konohamaru and tell him about your plans."Aw man, I wish I could come too, but I should probably stay here in case I need to come get you in an emergency, huh?" Konohamaru sighs. "Well, good luck anyway. You'll be the one fighting. They probably won't let me, since I'm too young. But you can show everybody the power of a Monkey Sage!"You thank Konohamaru and wish him luck in return, then head off. You still want to see Tenten and Kiba before you go. Kakashi as well. Tenten is likely to be in her shop as always, so you search for your teammates first. You go to the training grounds, but find no one. Checking Kakashi's apartment and Kiba's house turns up no results as well. You decide to go ask about their whereabouts at the Hokage's office.Arriving, you find Kakashi and Kiba talking with Neji, who seems to be doing paperwork in the Hokage's stead."Then this mission will be up to you two. Hopefully this will net us some more allies." Neji says, before turning his attention to you. "Welcome, Kon. I'm just filling in for Lord Itachi while he's getting surgery. Though I'll probably have to keep doing his paperwork for a bit longer, regardless. Did you need something?">A.I wanted to talk to my teammates>B.Tell him you're going off to train for a while>C.Ask Kakashi Sensei how he's doing>D.Talk about something else>E.Other
>>45848781>B.Tell him you're going off to train for a while>C.Ask Kakashi Sensei how he's doing
>>45848781>>B.Tell him you're going off to train for a whileGood luck to all of us.>C.Ask Kakashi Sensei how he's doingAsk if he wants a quick chat in private about it...it was our idea to have him there when it happened.Once Kiba and Kakashi leave talk to Neji in private some, maybe say we'd love to see the Hyuga compound some time.
>>45848781>B.Tell him you're going off to train for a whileHold down the fort and wish them all luck.>E.OtherAsk Kakashi if he has any last minute advice that might help you while you're away training
>>45848781>B. and C.
>>45848838>>45848846>>45848870>>45848965You figure you'll fill Neji in too while you're here."I'm going to Kakazan again to train for a while." you say. "So good luck to all of you in the meantime.""And I wish you luck as well, Kon." Neji replies. "I know I'll be able to trust you when we're side by side on the battlefield."Kiba and your teacher wish you luck as well, and start to leave. You top Kakashi momentarily before he goes."How are you doing, Kakshi Sensei?" you ask. "Did everything go alright with meeting the three tails? It was my idea, so I hope it didn't cause you any trouble."Kakahi stares for awhile before breaking a smile out under his mask."No trouble at all." he insists. "In fact, I'm grateful. The guilt will never really go away, but now I feel like I can get some closure. I always asked myself why it had to happen, and I never thought I'd get my answer. But now I can walk forward with confidence. I'm going to fight Madara, both for who I've lost, and for who I don't want to lose. So I guess to answer your question, I'm doing just great. Good luck Kon. We've got to head to the Land of Snow. We'll see you when you get back."Kakashi leaves the Hokage's office, and you follow suit. Next you head to the weapon shop to see Tenten.As usual, you find her behind the counter fiddling with some weapons."Hey, Kon. Welcome!" she greets you, setting her weapons down. "Did you come as a customer again today? Or did you want to see me for something else?">A.Tell her you'll be off training for a while>B.Tell her you want to buy something before you go (Specify)>C.Tell/Ask her something else (Write -in)>D.Other
>>45849292>A.Tell her you'll be off training for a while
>>45849292>A.Tell her you'll be off training for a while>C.Tell/Ask her something else Inquire about swords and tell her you might just take the seal she has on the sheath
>>45849351We've already got her making us a new weapon, we shouldn't add to the order.
>>45849292>>45849292>>D.OtherCan't I be both? I'm off to train with Enma for a little while but will hopefully be back shortly. How are you doing? Is business booming with NW4 coming up?But yeah i've got a sheath with your mark on it but how about we actually put a Katana in there? what do you think?By the way we do have our improved Hook/Wire don't we?
>>45849375Scratch the weapon then, didn't even know.
>>45849404Not yet, it's still in the works
>>45849292>C.Tell/Ask her something elseWanna go out with me for dinner tonight before I leave to eat berries for a month?
>>45849463Didn't we get the Hook/chain thing in our birthday?
>>45849538Aw shit, you're right. Got my timeline mixed up. That was my bad. Good call, anon
>>45849292We should comission a chakra metal sword.
>>45849325>>45849351>>45849404You decide to tell Tenten about your trip, but also have another question."I'm going off to train at Kakazan again." you tell her. "So I'll be gone for a while. But I wanted to ask about something else."You pull the sheathe of your broken sword out."Your seal was on here, right?" you ask. "There's really no point in me carrying it around anymore, so I plan to get rid of it. But do you want to keep your seal on something of mine? You know, for an emergency.""Well, I could put it on something else." Tenten thinks to herself. "I mean, you probably don't need me to look after you, but you're right that it's a good idea. So I could put it on your mask or kyoketsu-shoge. I could also just put it right on you, if you were okay with that. You know, to be sure.">A.Actually, I don't think I need it>B.Put it on my mask>C.Put it on my kyoketsu-shoge>D.Go ahead and just put one on me directly>E.You actually do want to buy something>F.Other
>>45849683SecondedNinja tools we imbue with impact chakra could be our gimmick
>>45849781>D.Go ahead and just put one on me directly>>45849792We already do that, and the kyoketsu-shoge is a cooler weapon anyway.
>>45849781>D.Go ahead and just put one on me directlyCan never be too sure about getting disarmed.
>>45849781>D.Go ahead and just put one on me directlyA tattoo to remind us of best girl. I'm so down
>>45849781>D.Go ahead and just put one on me directlyMay or may not be bait but if people start catching onto what we're doing with our gear they might start trying to get rid of it.
>>45849781>DPut it on our back, the better to watch it with.
>>45849781>D.Go ahead and just put one on me directly
>>45849781>D.Go ahead and just put one on me directlyWhy not, right?
>>45849781>DGo ahead just stick it on me, I trust you not to start summoning me to open jars and stuff. Or start sending weapons at me while I sleep
>>45849781>D.Go ahead and just put one on me directlyTramp stamp? Tramp stamp.
>>45849781>>D.Go ahead and just put one on me directlyWe are her property now
>>45849915fuckin do it, right above the tail area
hopefully she gets flustered or something make property jokes and the like, ask if she wants to be called master now, a little playful fun.
>>45849781>D.Go ahead and just put one on me directlyJust in case w get captured at some point
So are we loading Chekov's gun, here? Because with a space-time beacon applied directly to us I can think of some dramatic scenarios happening towards the end game. Like, Kaguya's defeated, the world is saved, but we're trapped in one of her pocket dimensions as it collapses without her influence. But then suddenly the camera cuts away to our home universe where Tenten is assembling a big seal array to pull us back through using the Thunder God seal on us as an anchor. I hope that happens, that would be a cool finale.
>>45849985We gotta waifu tenten now guys
>>45849985>>45850072Hnnnnnngggggg, dammit, I've been torn between the best girls for awhile, but now you're pushing it towards 10/10
>>45850072Or at least not piss her off
>>45849821>>45849841>>45849842>>45849861>>45849871>>45849879>>45849895>>45849906>>45849915Having the seal on you could never be anything but useful, and you wouldn't have to worry about being disarmed."Go ahead and just put one on me directly." you tell Tenten. "That way I don't have to worry about being separated from it. And I'm sure you won't abuse it, right?""Of course I wouldn't do that, just who do you take me for, Kon? Tenten asks, a sly smile at odds with her seemingly offended reply. "Now just let me get around you here..."Tenten walks behind you and urges you to stand still. You feel a sudden chill as a cold hand shoots up your shirt and touches your back."There we go. That part of you probably won't become separate any time soon." Tenten laughs as she draws her hand back. "Now I've got you at my mercy. Lucky for you, I can be pretty merciful."Tenten heads back behind the counter."Good luck with your training." she tells you. "With any luck, we won't need that seal for anything.">A.Thank her>B.Say something else (Write-in)>C.Leave for Kakazan>D.Other
>>45850123>A.Thank her>C.Leave for KakazanYeah, definitely loading Chekov's gun, with that last line, Tenten.
>>45850123>A.Thank her>B.Say something else (Write-in)Ask her out after training in monkey mountain
>>45850123>A>BTake care Tenten, see you later>C
>>45850123>A.Thank her>B.Say something else (Write-in)Take care and I'll see you when I get back, hopefully with something new to show you.
>>45850123>A.Thank her>B.Say something else (Write-in)Something about Being her property now
>>45850162nooo.....save all the waifu commitments for later, could be a running gig, all the way to the Boruto timeline Kon still has Tenten/Kuro/Deikida after him then right at the end a choice is made or something
>>45850123>A. Thank her.>D. Give her a kiss on the cheek.>C. Leave for Kakazan before she can react.
>>45850223>inb4 she summons us to help her clean her back, Hey Laze what devious thoughts did Tenten just get anyways?
>>45850150I guess that would be her job as the village arms dealer.>>45850123>A>C
>>45850255>inb4 errands before answers
>>45850123>A>BHopeful she takes good care of her property>C
>>45850232>all the way to the Boruto timelineHuh, I wonder: What will we wind up calling that time period, here? There's unlikely to be a Boruto. Or a Sarada. Mitsuki will almost certainly not exist unless we really screw something up. So whose kid are we going to name the sequel after?
>>45850123>A.Thank her>C.Leave for Kakazan
>>45850325>no Saladtruly this is a bleak future
>>45850123>A.Thank her>C.Leave for Kakazan>In before we walk out the door only for her to summon us back and tease us.
>>45850325Neji's? (Whoever that would be in this timeline)
>>45850402I wouldn't mind, desu
>>45850325>>45850381There's still a chance with sauce and sakura m8And in this timeline it actually makes sense
>>45850407Yeah, that could be. And thinking about it, the kid might still be named "Boruto", given that the name is a pun on Neji's ("neji" means "screw", so "Bolt/Boruto" is the bilingual wordplay there). Yeah, we might still be calling that the Boruto time period.
>>45850325Either Tenten's or Kurotsuchi's. Depends on which village it takes place in.
>>45850469We are gonna have way better kids. We still have shika/temari, shame about chocalate/choji but we have Ino/Haku whom will use fucking mind sealing mirrors!Plus all the rest.
>>45850497He'd be too old, Taiyaki and his team would fill the same role as Mirai did in canon. Especially since Laze has implied that Mirai is going to be on the same team as him, along with Shizuka.
>>45850150>>45850168>>45850188>>45850214>>45850223>>45850276>>45850317>>45850349You can only hope, but somehow you get the feeling that won't be the case. Regardless, you're glad to have the contingency in place."Thanks, Tenten." you tell her. "See you when I get back. You take care, alright?""Oh, don't worry about me." she laughs. "If I really get into any trouble, I can just go grab you real quick to help me out. It's not like that's anything new, right? That's what you're there for. But really, good luck, Kon."You and Tenten say your farewells, and you leave the weapon shop. One last quick look over to tell if you're ready, and you summon Enma. You explain that you want to continue training, and he takes you with him back to Kakazan. It's just the same as you remember it."So you have a war coming up, do you?" Enma asks. "Sarutobi lived through many of those in his lifetime. I'm sure with your dedication, you will be able to protect the things precious to you, just as he did. So how do you intend to spend this time here?">A.I want to train with you again>B.I want to focus some time on refining my jutsu>C.I want to go see a monkey here>D.Other
>>45850592>B.I want to focus some time on refining my jutsu
>>45850592>>C.I want to go see a monkey hereThat guy who won't come unless we do some kind of test.>B.I want to focus some time on refining my jutsuBut from there i'd like to refine my techniques and maybe learn some Monkey ones?
>>45850592>A.I want to train with you againBetter Nature Chakra Control/Extending Sage Mode Time here we come
What Monkey's are there like do we have a vauge idea? like have our three grown up some, are thre any others? we aint used just?
>>45850592>A.I want to train with you againnew jutsuying/yang?
>>45850592>>C.I want to go see a monkey hereFOURTH MONKEY! NULLIFICATION OF THE SENSES! GENJUTSU EXTRAORDINAIRE!
>>45850655There are a ton of monkeys, but not a whole lot of them are actually really suited to be summoned. A lot of them just laze around, and would be pretty useless if you did summon them. And most of the others are redundant, just monkeys that can do basic fighting on the level of Sarujizo. There are a very few select monkeys that have unique abilities and you are aquainted with most of them
>>45850592>C.I want to go see a monkey hereShizaru, the Fourth Wise Monkey. if only to see if he has anything useful to teach us. The laws of narrative suggest that he should, but I still don't want to just assume.Then>B.I want to focus some time on refining my jutsuIf possible I'd like to learn the Fusion jutsu (Sarujizo would need to learn it too, of course) so that we can have a better nature chakra supply and also do combos with Sarujizo not having to devote all his efforts to gathering energy.
>>45850592>45850592>C.I want to go see a monkey hereLets get this out of the way
>>45850770>Fusionpretty sure we know thatLearn combo moves with him instead.
>>45850770nah, lets leave the fusing, but im all for Sarujizo. I like the whole mask thing, kinda a theme of Kons'.Once we are done with that we can start practicing our Nebula Sphere or whatever we called it. Get throwing them down and expanding/contracting at range down.
>>45850816No, we explicitly do not. We've been getting by with a quick and dirty cheat, by having him keep close to us and transfer nature chakra to us as we need it. But that's inefficient and takes up his entire focus. Proper fusion would increase our nature chakra supply and allow Sarujizo to give us supporting fire with his own jutsu.
>>45850816How about we actually just get a small monkey whom hangs around on our shoulder and casts jutsu with us, leaves our Masked Monkey to be a mask and all.
>>45850758Are there any xbox huge monkeys we could summon like with the toads? Like some King Kong sized motherfuckers to fight giant snakes and shit?
>>45850858id rather fuse back to back with enma in case someone attacks from behind
>>45850770I would like to learn the fusion as well. I think it'd be quite useful. >>45850816It's explicitly not fusion. The monkey transforms and give us chakra, not we fuse with him.
I really don't wanna fuse with anyone, just let Kon do his thing manually, Sasuke don't fuse and we can actually stay sage longer than him because we have the mask.
>>45850897Yeah, now imagine how much better it will be when we can fuse and maintain Sage Moe indefinitely. We're going into the end game with a bloodline that is weak against the preferred jutsu of all of the major villains. We need every advantage we can get.
>>45850948Eat a dick you faggot, we can stay in it indefinitely as long as mask monkey doesn't get hurt enough to go recuperate at flower mountain. That's the entire reason we bought the metal maskGet out of here with your fusion-fetish; this quest isn't for your magical realm
>>45850636>>45850755>>45850770>>45850772You think. You wanted to do some work on your jutsu, but you have one piece of business you want to take care of first."First, I will go see Shizaru, the Final Wise Monkey." you tell Enma. "I want to see what I can learn from him.""Hmm. Very well." Enma sits down on a branch. "Shizaru puts people through very harsh tests, but only you can determine if it is worth the time and effort. Regardless, if you need me, I'll be right here."You head off in the direction you were indicated before, and find a cave. Just outside the entrance, Mizaru, Kikazaru, and Iwazaru sit an a flat rock, their hands up to their heads in the usual manner."It's been a while, Kon." Mizaru greets you, his hands over his eyes. "So you've come to train again, hmm? Here to take Shizaru's trial? Good luck. He has rarely ever let anyone summon him. But you're a tough kid. I'm sure you can do it."You thank Mizaru, then head into the cave. It's very dark, but you see a ledge high up above, and the figure of a monkey sitting on it."Who goes there?" the monkey asks. "Identify yourself!">A.Introduce yourself>B.Say you're here for the trial>C.Ask what this trial is all about>D.Ask what Shizaru can do for you>E.Other
>>45851015Yeah, this isn't a fetish thing, it's a practicality thing. We'll get access to more nature chakra with less ability for it to be disrupted by Sarujizo being injured.
>>45851021>>A.Introduce yourself>>B.Say you're here for the trial
>>45850948>TFW we could have just done ALL of the elemental Rasengans instead of one big, flashy technique that has a potential to backfire against one of the most common elements

>>45851021>>A.Introduce yourselfHey Creepy cave Monkey hows it going>B.Say you're here for the trialI heard that in order for me to be able to join you in battle I will have to pass some kind of test?
>>45851058Yeah, would have been nice. We'd still be at a disadvantage, our defenses would still be Impact-based, but at least we'd be able to win jutsu-clashes more often. As it is, we'll be useful against...maybe the Third Raikage?
>>45851091Not that anon, but you do know that shit can be broken right? I really don't understand why you seem so butthurt about us expanding our sage powers.
O people in regards to the Fusion/Not fusion lets leave it for now, we have a monkey to get, a jutsu to finish and more to learn before we even think about that.
>>45851091Yes. But fusion would make it even harder for him to get hurt, since he'd share a health track with us. And the mask can be bypassed. That happened in our last fight, remember? He had to quit long before we did, because even with the mask armoring him his tiny body was getting bashed around too much. He's just a little monkey, anon, show some pity for him.
>>45851159That was actually mostly because you guys kept getting electrocuted, which the mask didn't do much to help against
>>45851188>>45851159As Laze pointed out we can take one hell of a beating and so can h, we are fine with mask mode for now, way more important thing to do as these anon pointed out >>45851058>>45850770
>>45851188My argument still applies, though. We're going to be fighting a lot of fire guys soon, and the mask wouldn't help much against that, either. I just want to keep our little monkey friend safe.
>>45851042>>45851060>>45851065>>45851066>>45851091>>45851112You see no reason not to be polite now. Trying to get on his good side couldn't hurt."My name is Kon Karagowa." you start. "I'm a student of the Third Hokage, Hiruzen Sarutobi, and have been training under King Enma. I have come to undergo your trial.""Ah, I see." you hear a rapping against the cave wall. "No one has attempted my trial for a very long time. Not to mention passed. That Hiruzen of yours didn't even bother. Was content enough to fight with Enma alone. Very well. Mizaru, Kikazru, and Iwazaru have told me about you, and they expect great things. So we will see. To pass my trial, you will have to navigate to the very back of the cave."Shizaru points to a passage leading further into the mountain."There you will find a monkey statue. If you can bring it to me, then you have passed my trial." Shizaru explains. "But it is not so easy as you think. At three points, you will come to gates. You must pass through them, while declaring aloud what sense to sacrifice until the next time you pass through. Sight, Sound, or Speech. You will lose the sense you chose. Therein is the challenge. By the time you reach the statue, you will not be able to see, hear, or speak. If you can do that, you pass. But there is a time limit. You have one day. Any longer, and you will be pushed out of the cave by a great wind. Understand?">A.I understand>B.This isn't worth the trouble>C.Ask what you get out of this>D.Ask something else (Write-in)>E.Other
>>45851478>C.Ask what you get out of this>A.I understandGo Sage Mode? We don't really need our senses if we have that.
>>45851509I think sage mode is kind of cheating.
>>45851478>>A.I understandThis is probably alot like cops needing to be tased before they get a taser, you gotta know what you are gonna be putting people through
>>45851478>D.Ask something else (Write-in)"Do I have to sacrifice Speech last, then? Because otherwise I'm not sure how I'll declare which sense I'm giving up at each gate.">>45851519I'd think that exercising our ability to use our more mystical senses would be entirely the point, actually.
>>45851519No condition against it.The last person that did it might have been the last monkey sage.
>>45851478>A>DAre those the only rules?Summon another Monkey to guide us, failing that create a number of clones and have them loose a sense each time we hit a gate
You can use Sage Mode, but the statue doesn't have chakra, and sensing the natural energy around you can only tell you so much. Not to mention the time limit
>>45851616>keep touch>use genjutsu to offset the loss of the others as best we can
>A>DOk boys here is the plan>Step 1enter sage mode and leave a trail of bread crumbs using impact tags to find our way back (we will sense their chakra) Create numerous clones to map the tunnel we will be able to sense one another and make a bit of a mind map>Step 2Gate one: Give up hearinggate two: Give up sightgate three: Give up speech (has to be this way or we will not be able to voice what we loose next)>step threework way back using the trail we left>Support noteswe can use impact tags to act as bread crumbs like our clones and can also use them to release chakra and create a brief bloom showing us the shape of the area.
>>45851616If the monkeys can take senses away, can they give them back?
>>45851704Sounds reasonable. Though if the loss condition is met with being hit with a mighty wind, there might be lesser ones that could blow our tags out of formation. We should wrap them around the hilts of kunai and stab them into the rock.
>>45851704well since we don't need to return we could in theory use those bread crumb impact tags just to see in genral
>>45851748Ooh, what if we can do Impact echolocation? Fire off pulses of it to see how the Impact chakra passes through the surroundings, get a sense of positions from that.
>>45851748>>45851737>>45851704Ok gents we're solid...hang on if this is genjutsu...could we summon the three monkys to cast it on us again, bringing the jutsu under our control and then release it?
Why don't we just get Sarujizo? He's not taking the trial, he's just helping us get there and back.
Fuck, my Internet died. Posting from phone. I'm going to get dinner while I get this figured out, give me a while
>>45851834if it's ridiculously pitch black we may as will give sight up first since we are gonna use Impact chakra as echo location...and since the Third Hokage didnt even try this who last did?
>>45851921Oh, the Third's dad. Well, I suppose the family had to get the name "jumping monkey" from somewhere, so that makes sense.
>>45851509>>45851531>>45851536>>45851544>>45851586>>45851613https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J5qQsXn6uQU&index=20&list=PL4C928EAF7AA5B906So this is the trial. It may be tough, but you think you can pass it."I understand." you tell Shizaru. "Are those the only rules?""Bring the statue to me, and pass through the gates, yes." Shizaru reiterates. "You must pass through the gates, so you will lose your senses. Trying to pull tricks like clones or other monkeys to guide you will not work. They will be missing the same senses as you. You know Sage Mode, so feel free to use it, but know that it will still not make this easy. Now, go. You have twenty four hours."You head to the passage leading further in, and begin the trial. besides being a dark, dank cave, there don't seem to be any other obstacles so far. You feel a wind blowing constantly from further in. Soon enough, you are at the first gate. It covers the entire passageway, so there's no way around it. You have to go through. As you cross the threshold, you prepare to say which sense you will give up.>A.Sight>B.Sound>C.Speech>D.Other
>>45852814>D.OtherInvestigate the gate but don't pass through just yet
>>45852814>>A.SightDon't be a pussy
>>45852814>A.SightSounds conveys more information than light in dark caves like this. And we need to keep Speech until the end.
>>45852903That's not one of our options.
>>45852925...says who? All we have to do is say which sense we want to lose.
>>45852936Says Shizaru. He told us to choose sight, sound or speech.
>>45852814>A.Sight>see no evil>hear no evil>speak no evilLet's do it in order.
>>45852956He never actually said which one we had to lose.also, for the second gate, we say speech, map it out as best we can by leaving a breadcrumb trail of tags, then go back through the gate and forwards again using sage mode to navigate in lieu of sight. Thoughts?
>>45853005Yes, he did. >You must pass through them, while declaring aloud what sense to sacrifice until the next time you pass through. Sight, Sound, or Speech. You will lose the sense you chose. Therein is the challenge. By the time you reach the statue, you will not be able to see, hear, or speak.And we have to sacrifice speech last, we have to say out loud which we're losing so we can't lose speech when we have another gate left to do.
>>45852814>>45853003This is good
>>45852814>A.SightSpeech goes last
>>45852848>>45852858>>45852875>>45852881You feel like in this dark cave, sound will be more useful to you than sight."Sight." you say aloud, as you pass through the gate.As soon as you go through the gate, everything goes dark. You can't see at all. You take a minute to get used to the sensation before moving on. You listen closely, trying to get any hints as to the cave's shape. When you feel confident enough, you press on. Holding your arms out to feel in front of you, after a while, you come to a wall. You feel around, but find no way on. Stopping to listen, you hear wind from above you. You scale the wall and arrive in what sounds like from the wind a wide open chamber. It may be difficult to navigate from here.>A.Just try to find a wall and feel around>B.Listen for clues>C.Go into Sage Mode>D.Other
>>45853128>B.Listen for cluesThey probably put islands in here, so that we can't just hug the wall.
Have to do some errands. Back in a bit

>>45853128>>B.Listen for clues
>>45853128>Sage Mode For sure
>>45853128>B.Listen for cluesand from what we hear maybe we go into sage mode
>>45852814>Sightafter investigating the area. We are in a mountain so there is a good chance there is a river or water flowing through here we can use. besides it's pitch black can't see anyways, enter sage mode and slowly emit chakra effectively giving us echo location. Summon Mask Bro if we must to keep the chakra coming in, from there we echo/chakra resonate detect our way through.
>>45853128>B/C/DEnter sage mode and begin Chakra echo location mode. Can listen to clues while in that mode too to help.
>>45853283YeahWhy not use our chakra nature to create echolocation or something
>>45853128>>45853316>>45853196These and this >>45853283, obviously minus the sight bit.
>>45853336we know we can expel it from our body, we know we can sense chakra so really we can see granted only like a few meters around us before our chakra is to dispersed to be helpful.
>>45853378better be a blind bat than a mute one
>>45853301I just finished reading through the archives, and holy shit anon these pics gave me such a fucking laugh.
>>45853128>D.OtherWith our sense of sight gone, our other senses have magnified ten fold!LET US TASTE THE CAVE!
Hey if we can't see the gate, how do we know when to turn off a sense?
>>45853462Presumably we'll bump into it.
>>45853462easy chakra echo location would outline it
>>45853521But can Kon's brain make sense of the feedback?
>>45853564yup, we ninja its a basic thing we can sense chakra and its form so my releasing it, we will see where it stops or falls or changes shape to move around the environment.
If a Hyuuga did this test, would the Byakugan automatically override the loss of sense of sight?Also...the idea of Neji becoming a Sage makes me salivate.
>>45853154>>45853178>>45853187>>45853195>>45853196>>45853348You decide to stop here for a moment and just listen. You take a seat and decide to gather some nature chakra while you do.As you meditate, you get a feel for the chamber you're in. The hole you came through seems to be in the center of the chamber, with the walls roughly equally far away. The wind curves around a lot of objects, presumably large stones, scattered about the chamber. You can hear water running through the chamber. From directly in front high above you, it steadily flows down the wall, then to your right. From what you can hear, there must be a passage there. Listening to the wind one more time, you feel like there are a few passages out of this chamber. But you don't know how to choose which one to take. You sense about in Sage Mode for a bit to verify the guesses you made by sound, and you also feel a great chakra source deep in the mountain. It's too big to tell which way to go to get to it. You don't even know if you would want to.After sitting for several minutes, you decide that you need to move on. There are three passages further out of this room that you could tell. One above you, one to your left, and one to your right where the water flows. One of them has to lead to the next gate. There are some obstacles in the way of each, but none that will hold you for long.>A.Climb the chamber, go to the top passage>B.Go to the right, follow the water>C.Go to the left>D.Other
>>45853654DamnThat will be Madara 3.9.Nigguh what are you doing!!

>>45853731>>B.Go to the right, follow the water
>>45853731>D.OtherFeel for tracks in the ground.If other ninjas have come through here, then perhaps we can find the ones coming out of the passage, indicating the person was able to find the statue and bring it back.
>>45853731>B.Go to the right, follow the waterBecause if we are wrong we can flow the river back upBut that implies this infact my be set up for us to take it and fail so following that theory follow the path that would diffidently require hearing
>>45853794The last person to come through was over eighty years ago, and the cave is damp and windy. I think any tracks will have faded.
>>45853794Also if they were carrying the statue, they would sink deep into the Earth due to the weight...>>45853829But they would be left undisturbed if they had been deep enough.Basically I'm cheating and using that scene in He-Man where King Greyskull had his little quest.
>Bsend a clone down each other path?
>>45853760>>45853770>>45853791>>45853810You decide to take the right path. Even if it's wrong, you can easily follow the water back up.Going down the passage, you can hear the water splash with every step. Eventually you hear a loud rumbling. It's unmistakably a waterfall. As you go further, you stop at a ledge. The water runs off here, falling down a shaft. From above, you can hear the waterfall, the stream falling down right in front of you. You can't imagine that this will lead you to the next gate. You go into Sage Mode and sense ahead, and feel what seems to be an underground reservoir.>A.Go down there and check, just to be sure>B.Go back to the chamber and take the upper path>C.Go back to the chamber and take the left path>D.Other

>>45853932>B.Go back to the chamber and take the upper path>>45853984>>45854039>>45854061Guys, we don't have any clones that can do that
>>45853984>>45854039>>45854061You know that the Mud Clones we have are pretty limited in their reasoning skills, right? I don't think they'd be able to report back to us.
>>45854085>>45854094Really need to learn how to make one shadow clone just for recon purposes like this. That way their knowledge can come back to us when they go poof.
Gonna keep filling this out to help.
>>45854153Thank god someone's keeping track.
>>45854153Smart idea. Thanks, anon.
>>45853952>>45853995>>45854085You decide that this probably isn't the way you need to go, and turn back. The way back is quick, as you just follow the flowing water. Once you reach the open chamber again, you keep following it to the wall, then begin to scale it. The wall is slippery,and covered in dents and crevices, but you eventually make your way to a path up above. The water slowly trickles down from here.You walk along for a while, before coming to a proper stream. In the distance, you can hear the stream become a waterfall. Your best guess is that it's the source of the water from above in the other path. You keep following the stream until you come to a spring welling up from the ground. This must be the source of the water. Behind the spring, you hear the wind howling. It's a chasm, and you come to an abrupt cliff face. Without sight, there's no way to tell if there's anything down there, much less the gate.>A.Sense down in the chasm>B.Descend slowly down the wall to see what you can reach>C.Head back and take the left path>D.Other
>>45854286>B.Descend slowly down the wall to see what you can reach

>>45854373Try C then
>>45854292>>45854369You decide to try going down into the chasm to see what's there. This wall is much easier to stay on then the last one, since it isn't wet, and you make your way down. Listening closely as you go, your hear the wind whip differently around a part of the wall. You head there to find a platform. Once there, you hear another peculiarity in the wind. There seems to be a narrow path form here across the chasm. Barely wide enough to stand on. You walk it carefully and reach the other side to find another tunnel. You try to go on, but are stopped by some force. You feel around to find that it's the next gate. You found it. You get ready to pass through.>A.Sound>B.Speech>C.Other
>>45854455>A.SoundSpeech is last
>>45854455If it is speech, we cant talk at the last gate but if sound we still have smell and touch so>A.Sound
>>45854455>>A.SoundTransverse the rest of the cave by yelling and attempting to feel the sound waves that bounce back with our body
>>45854455>A.SoundWhy is there an other option for this?
>>45854455>A.SoundSpeech has to be last.
>>45854373Nah, it's more like the stream splits in two, and a little of it trickles through a path into the open chamber, while the main body goes on to fall from above directly into the reservoir. The spring and chasm are more directly straight from the upper path>>45854502In case you guys come up with some wicked strats
>>45854455>B.SpeechPresumably the last gate will take our last sense so we wouldn't need speech
>>45854513Oh.Uh...got nothing here.Can we summon Enma to become our walking stick?
>>45854513>In case you guys come up with some wicked stratsOh, in that case, then just Impact Release a straight path to the statue senpai.
>>45854474>>45854481>>45854493>>45854500>>45854502>>45854504You have to save speech for last, or you can't get through the last gate, so there's only one option."Sound." you say aloud, as you pass through the gate. The sound of the wind stops. You take another moment to orient yourself, using almost exclusively your sense of touch. You may need to count on Sage Mode a bit more from here on. Luckily it's only been a couple of hours so far.You continue on carefully, feeling around for the path. You feel the tunnel get very very narrow, until you have to hunch over to fit. eventually you reach a fork, with two tunnels. Both are very small, and would have to be crawled through. You think on how to decide with path to take.>A.Go left>B.Go right>C.Try to sense down the tunnels>D.Try to otherwise feel a clue as to which path to take>E.Other
>C.Try to sense down the tunnels>D.Try to otherwise feel a clue as to which path to take

>>45854631>E. Use a wind jutsu to push air down each tunnel. Which ever one has the longer distance (I guess we'll feel the air pressure or something) determines which way to go.
>>45854647>>45854658>>45854678You go into Sage Mode, and try to get a feel down each of the tunnels. The one on the right continues unabated for quite a while. You can't actually sense an end, while the one on the left seems to branch off a few times. Both of the tunnels have wind coming from them, but the one on the left seems a bit stronger. In addition, the left path seems smoother than the right. The right has several protrusions jutting out, while the left does not. At least in the main path as far as you can tell, there's no way of knowing about the branches.>A.Take the right>B.Take the left, worry about the branches when you get there>C.Left, there is a way to tell which branch to take (Write-in)>D.Other
>>45854749>CAssuming that the wind that would blow us back out is being blown away from the statue, the correct branch may be the one that has the stronger airflow.
>>45854749>C.Left, there is a way to tell which branch to take (Write-in)The wind.
>>45854749>C.Left, there is a way to tell which branch to take (Write-in)We've been following the wind so far. Presumably it's blowing away from the statue. If we go for where the strongest currents are coming from, we might be on the right track.
>>45854749>B.Take the left, worry about the branches when you get thereFollow the wind
>>45854749>>C.Left, there is a way to tell which branch to take (Write-in)Just keep choosing the tunnel with the stronger wind.
>>45854749We're just a leaf on the wind. I just made myself sad...
>>45854818>>45854830>>45854865>>45854869You decide to take the left tunnel. If the wind is supposed to push you out, then you just have to follow the branch that has the strongest airflow. Simple enough.You crawl through the tunnel, stopping at each branch to feel the wind. You go back and forth a few times, and make sure to go down the tunnel you can feel wind more strongly from. This goes on for quite a while. It feels like hours, crawling, feeling the wind, and crawling some more. But eventually you get to a larger tunnel. You can finally stand upright again.After taking a bit to stretch, you go on. Not too far down this tunnel, you're stopped. You feel around and find it. The last gate. Without hesitating, you pass through."Speech." you say aloud, though you cannot hear it. You pass through, and presumably have lost the ability to speak. No need to get reoriented on this one, you move on.You eventually come to another open chamber. This one is about as big as the first.>A.Feel around the walls>B.Sage Mode again, sense around>C.Mark your place here somehow>D.Other
>>45854958>A.Feel around the walls
I just had a weird thought: We're retrieving a statue of a monkey from within a cavern deep in a mountain. Our chakra sense tells us that there is something extremely powerful somewhere in here. And we're undergoing a classic Buddhist abandonment of the senses. Are we still on Mount Kakazan, or have we traveled to Mount Godai, taking on the role of Sanzo Genjo?
>>45854958>B. Sage Mode
>>45854958>D. Send out clones to feel along the walls, like monkeys in a barrel each clone grabs one hand and feels the wall with the other while we work our way down the clone line.
>>45854958>C.Mark your place here somehowAttach one of our explosive or Impact tags to a kunai, drive it into the rock.
>>45854958>B.Sage Mode again, sense around>C.Mark your place here somehow
>>45854958>C.Mark your place here somehowcarve a mark onto the floor then using impact chakra slam a kunai into the ground with our chakra tag on it. Its effectively a beacon. >B.Sage Mode again, sense aroundexpel chakra see if you can use it like detection gas. aside from the obvious stuff.
>>45854989good idea, they can tap each other to pass messages, like 2 taps if we got the statue then we just reel on in, its like fishing. that or finding more paths>>45855019these two.
>>45854914why anon, why
>>45854984>>45854990>>45854993>>45855019First thing's first, you don't want to lose the way back. You draw a kunai and put one of your Impact tags on it, then drive it deep into the rock, next to the tunnel you just came through. If you really need to, you can set the tag off remotely and sense the release of chakra.You then go into Sage Mode. It's time to pull out everything in your bag of tricks. You push Impact chakra out, feeling it as it bounces around, jerry-rigging a sort of chakra echolocation. This way, you can tell which paths are dead ends, of which there are several. After several hours of having to go in and out of Sage Mode, you find your way through the labyrinth to one giant open chamber, with a huge chakra source directly beneath you. You walk out to the center of the chamber to find a pedestal. You feel the object sitting on top of it. It's a small statue in the shape of a monkey. You've found it. And it's only been about seven hours. Though you can see why few have passed this trial.>A.Take the statue and get out of there>B.Check that huge chakra source>C.Try to feel if there are any traps around the pedestal>D.Other

>>45855179Carefully exchange the monkey with something that weighs similar to size.Or else we gotta make a run from a giant ass rolling boulder.I KNOW THIS IS A INDIANA JONES SET UP LAZE. YOU DON'T FOOL ME.
>>45855179>C.Try to feel if there are any traps around the pedestalbut do it quickly>B/DChakra echo location is a go find our way around, leave tags as we go.
>>45855221See, I was thinking Shrine of the Silver Monkey.
>>45855179>B.Check that huge chakra source>C.Try to feel if there are any traps around the pedestal
>>45855197>>45855208>>45855213>>45855225>>45855259You've got to approach this one carefully. You go into Sage Mode once more and sense for the chakra source. Whatever it is, it's huge. But it's not moving in the slightest. It might be some giant sleeping creature. You'll have to keep tabs on it.As you do, you feel around the pedestal. There doesn't seem to be any sort of mechanism to trigger once the statue is gone. The pedestal is entirely ordinary. But you stay alert regardless. You slowly and carefully grasp the statue, and lift it from the pedestal.The very second the statue leaves its place, all feeling is gone. You can't feel the statue in your hands. Or the ground beneath your feet. Or the wind around you. Not even your own body. Nothing. And that's not all. The chakra source vanished as well, even though you were paying close attention. This is too much not to process at once, and you lose grasp of the statue. It falls right back onto the pedestal, and you can feel again. Not only that, but sense chakra again. The huge chakra source is moving. You can feel the chamber shake. You can feel the wind from what you assume is its roar as it stands upright, towering over you. Whatever this creature is, you woke it up.>A.Grab that statue and book it>B.Try to fight the creature>C.Leave the statue and head out of the chamber, maybe it will go back to sleep>D.Other
>>45855353>A.Grab that statue and book itGod damn it, when we get back home we are going to have words with Tsunade-sensei about her clan's namesake.
>>45855353Summon all three wise monkeys and make the big guy blind, deaf and mute as well.EVEN THEM ODDS AND THEN SNAG THE STATUE.
>>45855353>>A.Grab that statue and book it
>>45855383Or wait...is the gigantic monkey blind, deaf and mute already because it passed the gates?Could..our three wise monkeys dispel that for him so he can actually see/talk/and hear us?
>>45855353>A.Grab that statue and book it
>>45855439 I'm assuming it's a monkey but it's probably not.I'm thinking Mighty Joe Young meets King Kong but really it could be anything.
>>45855452I'm thinking it's a giant Japanese macaque, and he's mad because we interrupted him in the bath.
>>45855487That'd explain where the water was going. It's how the big guy stays hydrated!...Wonder how it eats? Does it mainly subsist on failed ninjas?
>>45855379>>45855401>>45855442There's no time to think, you just need to go. You orient yourself in the direction of the exit, then grab the statue and run off. As you expect, picking up the statue again robs you of your remaining senses. You're running with no feeling at all. Eventually you just become too uncomfortable and stop, setting the statue down. You regain your sense of touch and chakra sense once more. You can feel the cavern shaking violently, that creature must be trying to tear the whole place down.Meanwhile, you need to get this statue back to the entrance without any senses.>A.Keep going as you are, set the statue down every once in a while to reorient yourself>B.Try to map things out and get to the last open chamber at once>C.Try to do something about the creature>D.Other
>>45855517>A.Keep going as you are, set the statue down every once in a while to reorient yourself
>>45855517Push ourselves down the tunnels with a wind-jutsu and just...be a leaf on the wind.THIS ONE'S FOR YOU WASH!
>>45855517>>D.OtherJury rig a strap with our ninja wire so we can carry it without touching it.
>>45855517>>45855627....this anon makes a good point. Can we like, use our shirt as a bag or something or carry by a strap? Might be worth seeing if that actually works.
>>45855627... that's actually not entirely a bad idea. In fact I would tentatively call it a good idea.
>>45855517This is goodSupport>>45855627
>>45855527>>45855575You don't really see a better course of action than the one you're on. It takes even longer than the way down, but you manage to feel your way through the labyrinth back to the open chamber, setting the statue down every once in a while. The cave is still shaking, rocks falling and nearly striking you several times. You almost got lost at one point, but that Impact tag you left leads you back. You pass through the third gate, and begin crawling up the tunnel. This takes far longer than before, as you can't feel the wind this time, and the tight space makes your echolocation trick difficult. It's several hours until your finally get through to the second gate.Setting the statue down, you find you can hear again. You're immediately greeted by the rumbling of the cavern and a roar of a volume you've never heard before. That beast is still rampaging. And you don't have a lot of time left. Carefully retracing your steps, you make a dash for the first gate, and the exit. You pass through the first gate, then set the statue down momentarily, just to see it. The faintest trace of light. Picking the statue back up, you run as fast as you can to the entrance. You fall forward at one point, and the statue is taken from you as you regain all your senses."Eighteen hours and seven minutes!" Shizaru exclaims. "That's a new record! And it looks like Oozaru didn't give you a scratch! You are something else after all, boy. You pass."You exhale deeply. The trial is over.>End of Chapter 70Next thread should be TuesdayTwitter is @LazeQM
>>45855688Hah! Take that, giant hotspring monkey! And no, I will never stop thinking of you as that no matter what you turn out to actually look like.Thanks for running, Laze. This was a fun thread, the puzzle element made for a nice twist on the usual format for this quest. See you Tuesday.
>>45855688Oh shit, guess we didn't even need the write in then. Glad that worked out well. Thanks for running! It was a really fun first live thread.
>>45855688hell yeahBtw, how many plus points did we make with 10/10?
>>45855688>You are something else after all, boy. You pass."
>>45855688thanks for running
>>45855745A decent amount
>>45855688So were you expecting us to do this well?
>>45855688>OozaruCAN WE SUMMON GREAT APE NOW?!Or do we need a full moon?
>>45855688Sucks that my write-in wasn't used, but it all worked out in the end. See ya on Tuesday Brometheus.Oozaru summon when?
>>45855787I thought you might fuck up a bit more, but that chakra echolocation thing made most of it foolproof
>>45855788Given what a full moon will mean is happening, we'll need him. Though the other monkeys knocking out our senses will probably be just as useful.
>>45855688Thanks for running laze was fun going into the temple of doom.>QaASo what does Shizaru or this big guy look like?Are there actually any Monkey unique techniques we could learn from here? Like the Frog Shadow puppet one? or whatever.Did Tenten get any devious thoughts when we said she could put here seal on us? What were they? Did Kuro suddenly get an unexplainable ich? like someone was touching her stuff?Kakashi aint fine is he, he's going cold blooded killer on masked man.Who is Oozaru?How much more training till we can through and remotely expand/dilate our Impact Spheres?Finally what does Enma think of us having just done this?>Keep being awesome Laze
>>45855688by tuesday ya mean tomorrow yeah?
>>45855803So what does Mr. Fourth Wise Monkey's specialty line in? Shizaru literally means 'No Evil'. So can he removes all senses like the statue and gates did by himself?How's his senjutsu control? Would he make a better partner then other monkies?
>>45855842Could be day after, depending on where he himself is.
>>45855829I'm pretty sure Enma is really proud of us. He likes it when we do things that remind him of his previous summoners, so to surpass both the Third and the Third's father must be really hyping him up.
>>45855829Shizaru is a super old monkey, full beard and everything, only monkey older is SarutahikoOozaru is a giant ape, pretty much exactly what you'd expectThey are more focused on their transformations and taijutsu stylesMaybe a bitKakashi knows not to lose himself, so he'll be alrightA giant monkeyA bit longer, it's pretty tough stuffHe's very impressed>>45855842No, I'm west coast murica, so day after tomorrow>>45855847That is what he doesHe's pretty good at senjutsu, but he is super frail, since he's so old
>>45855951So I imagine Oozaru listens pretty much only to Shizaru, Sarutahiko and Enma.Does Oozaru know that Son Goku left that waterfall place and can totally move in right? We ever gonna check that place out?Also...can pass on the idea of fermenting the fruit to Enma?
>>45855993Man, he's a monkey. You think he's not already fermenting that shit? Monkeys love getting drunk.
>>45856009I know, but I totally wanna try giving some to Lee.DRUNKEN FIST SAGE ROCK LEE.
>>45855993He does not know, but he would stay in the mountain anyway. He likes it in thereYou could, but there's not much there right nowThat particular fruit doesn't ferment well
>>45856035Probably not enough sugar in it, huh?
>>45856035>not much there right nowIt'd be good to know if we ever came back and found things out of place so we have a frame of reference for what the water fall cave should look like if left undisturbed.
>>45856042Why would that matter? It's not like anyone but us and the monkeys are going to go there.
>>45855951Ok cool, out of intrest would we be able to get teleported directly to the Stone from here if we asked Enma nice?So people Sitreps.Hows Kurotsuchi Doing atm?Do the Kage have a plan where they are going to place Kon in the war?(like commander, gorilla unit etc)How'd the Op for the bro's go? We should make Tenten a bodyguard so she can teleport Itachi around since he is a little frailSo uhhh....genuine question...what does it take to absorb three tails chakra to give it to us like those Silver and Gold bros?next is are there any kinda small Monkey's (think spider monkey) that we could have kinda like a familiar always with us and casts a small amount of Jutsu to combo with, a little mascot?finally Hows neji liking Hokage sitting?
>>45856076>So uhhh....genuine question...what does it take to absorb three tails chakra to give it to us like those Silver and Gold bros?An act of God. That's not something that anyone knows how to replicate, they got it pretty much through sheer chance.
>>45856076You could ask himShe's practicing her ninjutsu, gotta be ready for the warThey are both doing great, operation was a complete successWhat >>45856093 said, shit was a total fluke. Whenever Cloud tried it again, all the subjects diedThere are someThe paperwork is a pain, but he's feeling pretty smug right about now
>>45856120So, can we summon Oozaru if we talk to him later and he agrees?
>>45856157Shizaru was going to talk to him for you
>>45856178Was Oozaru impressed that we managed to get the statue and then get the fuck out of there that quickly?He was probably napping thinking we wouldn't get there until much later.
>>45856120Thousand years of Hyuga when?Think if we only stay here a little bit we could actually pull off teaching Kurotsuchi wind nature?How about that question of Placement in the war? Kon gonna be a commando unit or staying bodyguard?Wonder what the Frogs think of us since it's been so long since the Monkeys had someone like us, i mean we have a bad rep for being there whenever sasuke Jobs it?Where did Tenten put it? Please say its a tramp stamp like we all wanted, go on ;)So now this little bit is over you mentioned Naru and Hinata could die in this arc...is there a quest hook coming?
Who else in the village has an aptitude for Senjutsu that we haven't explored yet?
>>45856210Nah man we gotta stay as long as we canOur nature chakra control only lets us in sage mode for about 5 to 10 mins and fights are gonna take a fuckloud of time and energy to be doneWe need some stamina boosts yesterday
>>45856210>Wonder what the Frogs think of us since it's been so long since the Monkeys had someone like us, i mean we have a bad rep for being there whenever sasuke Jobs it?Hey, if they don't like it they should get a summoner who doesn't job so much. He's got one of the most powerful bloodlines in the world right now and we're still surpassing him with little old Impact Release. Step up your game, Uchiha.
>>45856242>http://pastebin.com/i69yvu3TLook at our statsCurrent stats:Ninjutsu 4.5Taijutsu 4.5Genjutsu 2.0Intelligence 4.0Strength 4.0Speed 4.5Stamina 4.0Hand seals 4.0Total: 31.5we are tough as fucking nails...though It would be nice to get a 5 somewhere, but i aint fussed
>>45856203Yeah, the other guys always stayed long enough to get fucked up. Sasuke got to the statue, but Oozaru fucked him up and he went over the time limit>>45856210SoonYou couldThat will be decided at the strategy meeting, but Itachi thinks he can't afford to have you stand around as a bodyguardFROG STRONK REMOVE MONKEY. Naw, they know Sasuke just isn't tapping into his full potentialIt's at the center of your back. The part that's really hard to reachI don't remember saying that. I mean it's kind of true, since basically any character could die in this next arc, but that's still a bit off anyway>>45856241No idea, there's a lot of people
>>45856262Need to get our genjutsu up to a four so it matches the rest of our stats.That 2 sticks out like a sore thumb.
>>45856262Those stats haven't been updated since fighting Pain, if I remember right. We're probably even stronger now.
>>45856262I haven't updated the pastebin in weeks. I'll do it right before the last arc starts for real
>>45856262I meant that we have to get better control over nature chakra last longer with sage mode
>>45856281Wanna give us a hint on the stat changes? dw about updating just let us know for the moment.Hows Ukata doing that run away slug?
>>45856298I was just gonna bump a couple things up by .5Utakata is determined to repay a debt
>>45856323Cool and naaaw Sluggie boy is in love and wants to repay kindness its adorable.How's kakashi and Kiba's team doing?I know tenten can reverse summon to us but does that seal also let her summon us to her or her weapons to us or whatever?would practicing our barrier make it better or do you want us to manually think of a way?
What would happen if we asked Tsunade out for a one on one meal, we dont say date but heavily imply it?
>>45856352You don't know what you're talking aboutThey are on a boatNo the seal she used was to summon her to it, the other way around would take a different sealPractice never hurts>>45856366Her student is treating her to a free meal, she'd take it
>>45856388>>45856388So I assume she is still broke as fuck and gambling like mad...Kon should challenge her to strip poker.That stuff aside How's Sakura doing in this timeline, never really seen how she's doing or in battle, what do our Sensei think of us coming this far anyways?Is the Child of Prophecy thing still in effect?
>>45856423She's pretty much as strong as in canon, just hasn't gotten any chances to show off reallyTsunade is very impressed with how far you've come, but doesn't really feel like she did anything, she just made you learn some medical ninjutsuIt was vague enough to basically always work
>>45856456any fun trivia you want to tell us that we aint asked
>>45856366>>45856423>Take Tsunade to a fancy dinner>Ensure that Deikida knows about it>Word gets out and Tenten starts to hear rumors and exaggerations>Deikida mentions it in passing to Kurotsuchi, who immediately starts making assumptions
>>45856474We must get Kon more booty, he must be sitting at the top of a mountain in the Monkey place, this own little temple, Deikida, Kuro, Tenten and numerous others all laying against the throne, holding his ankles, Hordes of ninja he taught sage mode creating his own monkey kingdom, all Kon the Monkey Prince
>>45856473None that I can recall off the top of my head. I'm sure there's some things I would mention, but it's too late for me to think of them on my own
>>45856514>numerous othersLike anyone would care beyond the three you listed anyway. I certainly wouldn't.Best Konoha girl in Kon's age range, best non-Konoha girl in Kon's age range, and best OC girl in Kon's age range.
>>45856561Who is also his cousin but hey who's asking?
>>45856571Nobody, shut up.
>>45856571Hey, Neji and Hanabi were going to be wed, and they're cousins too, IIRC.
>>45856652Yeah but the situation was about to burst into clan infighting IIRC
>>45856571Deidara and Deikida had a parent from outside the clan like you did, so you guys are genetically very removed from each other
>>45856681Nvm then let's fuck the cyborg
>>45856681We should talk to her next time we're in town. Do something with her.
>>45856664Deikida probably gives us the best chance of passing on impact release which is even more worthwhile.
