Shinobi Quest #2This quest takes place within the lands of the Five Great Shinobi Nations (aka Narutoverse) starting roughly around the beginning of the original series. The world of this quest remains similar to the original, with slight but notable differences in certain areas, based upon the passage of time from a single slightly altered event. (It’s a goddamn Naruto Quest, you bastards. Have fun, participate, and write in when you feel inclined. Most of the outcomes of this quest will be determined by you, the players. Critiques and questions are always welcome, as my knowledge of the weeby shit is not all encompassing.)http://pastebin.com/WiPdCqLHLast thread, our character Tsuki Norihime completed her Genin examination, lost a match of Shogi to Shikamaru, and received her team assignment-Hinata Hyuga, a quiet girl from a powerful house with a strong bloodlineNori Uzumaki, your rather unpleasant and tempestuous rival, the daughter of the 4th Hokage.And your Sensei, the inscrutable Ebisu. You aren’t really sure how it could be any worse. “Your new sensei will find you all individually before the day is out- all of you are free to go.” Mizuki proclaims, clearly happy to be free of the lot of you.Your new teammates are still chatting in the corner, likely celebrating.What will you do?1. Join Them. Might as well make the best of this.2. Go into town. You need something to distract you. (Where will you go?)3. Go home. You want some time to yourself- it’s likely to be the last peace and quiet you’ll have for a while.

Don't respond or quote people.
>>47309380To whom? The QM? Nah, bruh
Sounds like it's time for a little teambuilding.Writing.
>>47309396You know who I meant.
>>47309315>Join them. We need to lord over Nori, make friends with Hinata, and see what they're talking about.
You opt to to try and make the best of things. Starting trouble now will only lead to more problems later. Hinata may not even be that bad.Maybe.You take the initiative and head over to them. “Well then, it would seem we’re to be teammates.” you muse. “I look forward to working with you, Hinata.”“O-oh yes! I look forward very much to working with you as well, Tsuki!” Hinata responds, clearly not sure how to deal with your directness. The two of you haven’t spoken much, but she’s a polite girl. Nori just glares at you, not saying anything. How do you respond? 1. Attempt to make peace with Nori2. Snark back at her. You’re obviously trying to be friendly, and she’s being difficult!>Write-in
>>47309580>3. Attempt to make peace but add in some hidden snark that only someone of culture would be able to pick up on.
>>47309580>2. Snark back at her. You’re obviously trying to be friendly, and she’s being difficult!
>>47309614This is fine.
Making peace as far as is possible for one like her~--writing--
saw the first quest, didn't get to participate, looking forward to taking part in haughty oujo ninja questalready smashing Princess and Barbarians' lips together in my brain
>>47309778>being a lesbo>Pass the age of tenWe have class, good sir!
>>47309778Good sir! If you read the first thread, than you should know that the husbando wars were raging quite hard!And Lee shall be our husbando, he who is our complete opposite in stats and upbringing!>>47309830Indeed!
>>47309830Fine, fineI'll settle for hand-holding
>>47309873Except Lee has none. Absolutely no class just look at those eyebrows. We are going for a Hyuuga or Senju.
You smile-“Why, I’m quite looking forward to working with you as well, Uzumaki-chan.” you say sweetly, with your eyes narrowed only slightly in disgust. “Huh? You don’t need to be so formal, you know…” Nori looks puzzled by your saccharine pleasantries.“Ohoho, but I must! It is our duty as highborn ladies of our respective clans to be polite to those who may be lesser. It is not their fault, after all.” You laugh at her confusion. “Right. You sound like Ebisu-sensei.” She responds, not picking up at the dig. “You must always be representative of your father, the Hokage”, she drones, clearly reciting this from memory. “Your actions will always reflect upon him and the entire Uzumaki clan.”While you’re uninterested in her inability to act the part of a lady, she does bring up something worth conversing about.That man- Ebisu-sensei.1. Ask about Ebisu-sensei. You’ve heard some rather uncouth rumors about him.2. Refrain, and ask about something else (What?)3. Refrain, and excuse yourself. You have things you need to do before tomorrow.>Write-In
>>47309929> Ask about dat bitch-man
>>47309929>1. Ask about Ebisu-sensei. You’ve heard some rather uncouth rumors about him.Maybe he isn't that bad, right?
>>47309929>1. Ask about Ebisu-sensei. You’ve heard some rather uncouth rumors about him.
>>47309929>Ask about Ebisu-sensei. You’ve heard some rather uncouth rumors about him.>"About our sensei... I've heard some dreadfully unsavory rumors. You don't think our families would let us be taught by some sort of... deviant, do you?"
>>47309929>1. Ask about Ebisu-sensei. You’ve heard some rather uncouth rumors about him.>4. Furthermore isn't it odd that his team is made up entirely of daughters of important clans? Uzumaki, Norihime and Hyuuga.
>>47309923And? Anon, don't you know about the stories where the poor peasant warrior marries the rich princess?Besides, marrying into the Hyuuga is bad because Caged Bird seal, and iirc there's no Senju left. >>47309929>Ask about Ebisu-sensei. Surely he can't be THAT bad. Right?
Time to discuss Ebisu~Writing
>>47309982Main Branch baby. Senju might still be around given Minato is still hokage. Wargle, even though phone thinks ya be War God, history dump?
>>47310005If you are going to dump, do it in-character, OOC stuff is terrible. Just wait until we can ask someone about it.
We could always marry for status and power, and have a naughty present boy on the side.
>>47310005Pretty sure Minato's family was never revealed in canon, and him being a Senju is fanon, iirc.
>>47310051Nah. We should marry for love and money. Our womanhood is only for the best man that earns it.
>>47310059I didn't mean to insinuate that Minato was Senju. Just that if he was still around the Senju might be as well. Granted I know very little of it. Just what gets thrown around in quests.
>>47310059Minato's a Namikaze, nothing ever got expanded on them
Just read the pastebin and Ebisu is as strong as we are! He a bitch!!
All this marrying power into power thing we are talking about has adjusted my mental image of Tsuki. Who else thinks we look like anime Natalie Dormer/Margaery tyrell?
>>47310233Nice image mate. Just need her more ninja and it'd fit.
No time like the present, and besides, Nori seems to know the man.“Had some experiences with our future sensei, have you? I’ve heard some things… You don't think our families would let us be taught by some sort of... deviant, do you?” you ask.“He’s a bit odd, sure.” she starts slowly, trying to word herself carefully. “But he’s mostly harmless. He’s snuck off a few times to peep in a bathouse or two, I’m sure, but we don’t have anything to worry about.” She pauses, and looks between the three of you. “We’re daughters of three of the most powerful families in Konoha. I really don’t think he’s stupid to try anything.” You aren’t so sure, but clearly Nori hasn’t had any problems. You sincerely doubt the man would brazen to try anything on the daughter of the Hokage, or the Heiresses of the Norihime or Hyuuga clans. It would be suicide.“Speaking of our families,” Hinata pipes up,”Isn’t it a bit odd that the three of us are together?” “Probably a political move, I’d wager”, you respond quickly, your mind quickly resolving the question. “Tie three of the most influential families of Konoha together, and keep them safe at the same time.” You groan. “We’ll probably be chasing a lot of cats.”Nori echos the sentiment “Maaaaan. I was hoping for some extra-special kunoichi training, you know? Ehehehe.”You don’t know. Probably not worth knowing, either.Either way, you will be able to confirm your suspicions soon enough. Everyone seems to be filtering out of the classroom, with Mizuki and Iruka handing out the Leaf Forehead protectors as people go.Time to go, you think to yourself.But where?1. Town. you need to pick up supplies. (Where in town?)2. Home. You need to tell father, and you want some time to yourself.3. Invite the two of them into town with you. Might as well continue this teambuilding exercise.
>>47310268>3. Invite the two of them into town with you. Might as well continue this teambuilding exercise.We must dress Nori up to our standards.
>>47310268>3. Invite the two of them into town with you. Might as well continue this teambuilding exercise.Just be sure to watch our backs yeah?
>>47310228He is a professional teacher for kage's kids. He is super smart and talented with ninjutsu and hand seals. Things he can teach. Can't teach being swole AF
>>47310268>2. Home. You need to tell father, and you want some time to yourself.
>>473102683. Invite the two of them into town with you. Might as well continue this teambuilding exercise.
>>47310268>3. Invite the two of them into town with you. Might as well continue this teambuilding exercise.team shenanigans!
>>47310308And how is he supposed to protect them if he's a wimp?
Team shopping spree? Writing.
Kinda hoping this shit is secretly a badass in this reality
I hope he's better at teaching than fighting
“Would the two of you like to join me for a trip into town? I figure it’d be a good idea to stock up on supplies before meeting Ebisu-sensei tomorrow.” you offer. Might as well stick together for now. “Eh? Sure, might as well. Family probably isn’t home, anyway.” Nori says, seemingly surprised at the offer.Hinata hesitates. “I would like that…”, she starts,”But I need to head over to the compound. Father will be waiting for me.”Not too surprising. From what you understand the Hyuuga family is a strict one.Now you’re stuck with Nori, though.The three of you head out of the classroom, collecting your headbands, and saying goodbye to your former sensei. After leaving the Academy, Hinata splits from your group to head towards the Hyuuga compound. As Nori and yourself bid her farewell, you turn towards Nori as she asks you a question.“So where to, Princess?” She gives you a toothy grin.1. Weapons Shop. Gotta stock up.2. Top of the Hokage rock. It’s relaxing up there, and you could probably ask Nori about her family3. Maybe try your luck at finding Ebisu-sensei?4.Let Nori choose>Write-In

Visiting the weapons shop. It's Tenten time~Writing
>>47310573>3. Maybe try your luck at finding Ebisu-sensei?Fucker can't peep on us if were peeping on him first.
>>47310649But I did, anon.
>>47310649no he didn't. You just missed it. https://twitter.com/WargleQM/status/732738125856935936
While we are not physically strong, it's never a bad idea to stock up on weapons.
Legitimate question not born of maliciousnessAren't quest threads supposed to be on /qst/ now?
So what should our backup weapon be since were basically playing a mage. A staff/bo maybe one that unfolds into a massive fan (cue shenanigans with Temari), or maybe something symbolic like a mirror shield? obviously we'd pick up a much more basic version of whatever we choose on this shopping trip.
>>47310673Don't need to be if you have the money to buy paper bombs in bulk.
>>47310728I don't think so, because it's still a trial board. Like, they can go there, but it's not enforced yet.>>47310731I vote a metal deck of cards, because why not.
>>47310755>Fan made of metal deck of cardsThis, please.
>>47310728Because it's a trial board still, no; quests on tg are fine until qst is proven as a concept if it ever is. Plus quests seem to pick up more of an initial audience here with a lower number of chucklefucks.
>>47310731I say Naginata. It is the traditional weapon of Japanese royalty, and it helps our low strength and reach. Also, /tg/ loves pole arms.
>>47310766oooh, Iron fans were a thing for like army commanders iirc, having one that can break apart into throwable metal cards would be fun.
>>47310731I'd pick a lady-like instrument like a small harp or flute or something. We can use sound-based genjutsu from it, play some sweet tunes when not in combat, and you can whack someone with it if they get too close.
>>47310731bladed folding fanfor the ojou in combat
Right, time to head to the Weapons Shop. That’s what the offer was predicated on, after all.“Well, I figure we can head over to Tenten’s family’s place. We can stock up on whatever supplies we need for tomorrow and onward.” you answer.“Weapons, eh? Sounds good. I probably need to pick up a few more ranged weapons- although I’m more of a close range kinda girl” Nori laughs, and throws a few quick jabs at the air.The two of you head along the pathway towards the shop, mainly focusing on not losing each other in the crowd. Konoha is busy this time of year, with both the Genin examinations, and the spring Chunin exams being scheduled very soon after. It’s a shame you’ll probably be too busy to watch. Nori picks up the dropped conversation once the crowd begins to thin out.“Is there anything specific weapon wise you’re looking for? Not to tease you or anything, Princess, but you aren’t like me. Up close and personal combat doesn’t really seem your thing, you know?“Well I am most certainly not like you.” you retort, although maybe not as harshly as you once might’ve. “I’ve got a few things I’m considering.”“Oh?” she says inquisitively, “like what? Now I’m curious.”1. Something Close-range. You plan to strengthen that weakness.2. Something middle to far range. Tactical ranged weapons are more your speed.3. Only stocking up on the basics- kunai, wires, tags. Probably will avoid an actual dedicated weapon.4. It’s a surprise!(Preliminary weapon votes, go)
>>47310787hmm a naginata would be fun too, maybe give it telescoping haft for portability + ability to become a machete type thing when needed?
>>47310811Middle to far range for us
>>47310811>http://pastebin.com/WiPdCqLH>44 and 2 if we can do two.
>>47310811I'm voting for a collapsible flute.
>>47310811>2. Something middle to far range. Tactical ranged weapons are more your speed.
>>47310811>2. Something middle to far range. Tactical ranged weapons are more your speed.With a little 4 thrown in.
>>47310811>1. Something Close-range. You plan to strengthen that weakness.some kind of weaponized fan. Tessnjutsu is a thing you knowhttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tessenjutsu
>>473108112. Something middle to far range. Tactical ranged weapons are more your speed.
>>47310843>2>4combining all the things discussed so far, a large collapse-able flute paired with a bladed fan that can be attached to the flute when folded to form a polearm, fan can also be wielded independently for close quarters work.
Anyone else thinking a bow could be cool?
No close range for us. Hope Nori likes surprises!Writing.
>>47310811>4. It’s a surprise!
>>47310811>1. Something Close-range. You plan to strengthen that weakness.Close to mid range - a colapsible razor-edged fan. Good for cutting, slapping, and ohohoho!ing.
>>47310901with plenty of gimmick ninja arrows?exploding arrowselemental based arrowspoison cloud arrowssmokescreen arrows
>>47310935Ninja Green arrow quest is go!?
>>47310935>"Uchiha Obito. You have failed this village."
>>47310901That'd be fucking awesome.Plus, with genjutsu, you could fool opponents into thinking only a few arrows has become a veritable storm of sharp pointy sticks.
>>47310935Boxing glove arrow
>>47310958You dick! Ya beat me to it!
>>47310935>>47310948>>47310959>>47310967>>47310969Literally every bow hero does that shit though.
>>47310967loaded with weights from Rock Lee
>>47310988True. But only Ollie does it while singing his own theme tune.
How would we make the proper signs to do jutsu if we're using a bow, anyway?
You consider it for a few moments- close range isn’t really your thing. You’re a lady after all, such things are beneath you. Let the peasants march forward onto the spears of your enemies! “Ohohoho~” you laugh at your own mental joke aloud. Truly, your will is a force to be reckoned with. Nori however, doesn’t seem to understand this yet.“Uh… Princess, you still there? You didn’t answer my question.” she chides with a somewhat slack jawed look on her face.“My apologies, I was lost in thought. Besides, it’s a surprise! Can’t tell you all my secrets!” You exclaim, and give her a wink.“Riiiiiight. Just make sure you’re not going to get tangled up with me with we do actually start fighting, you know?” Her look hasn’t changed.“No worries, I won’t get in your way.” you chuckle, remembering your joke.Finally, you arrive at the weapon shop. Tenten greets you as you enter, seemingly just having returned from the academy herself.“Ah, Tsuki-hime! I figured you’d be stopping by. You too, Nori.” She seems less enthused about greeting Nori.“What can I get for you two?”(Discuss. I’ll throw up a vote after I comb through the suggestions)
>>47310988maybe get the arrows made from that metal that you can put chakra into so when Tsuki-hime gets her affinity she can really fuck people up
>>47311047We could have maybe a scroll preloaded with a Justu and tie it to the arrow
>>47311047carefullyand from a distance>>47311048Bow is genius. Yes.Sticking by bow.
>>47311048bow and arrowskunaiwar fans (iron or bladed preferably both)
>>47311048I was thinking like using a chain whip.
>>47311048Bow, Naginata, weighted ball on a chain.
>>47311048Bow and arrowsPaper bombs to wrap around our arrowsWar fansSmoke bombs wireWe are a wealthy girl, so time to throw daddy's money around.
I like the collapsable naginata from>>47310819but maybe we should be at least somewhat passable in CC before we bother. I forgot our Taijutsu is only .5. getting in close, even with a weapon, is liable to get us hurt.
>>47311048Sticking with the steel fans. Go full Mortal Kombat.
>>47311048bow and arrow seems fun, can do stuff like tying wire between two arrows and firing both for a wide range cutting attack... though, bows require a good bit of strength to use, maybe a mechanical crossbow like pic related with special bolts?
>>47311052>SecondingI like this idea, any ETA on when we'll figure out our affinity?
Alright. Money is no object. You are, however, limited by what you can carry.Stocking up on supplies is a given. Seeing primarily1. War Fan. Could be used as both a ranged throwing weapon and a close range weapon. Can be snuck in places where more traditional weapons may not be allowed.2. Naginata. Long spear used to keep enemies at a distance. Still primarily a melee weapon, you'd need to train up your strength to use this weapon more effectively.3. Bow. Both Shortbows and Longbows are available. Great range and rate of fire once practiced. Can be difficult to aim at fast targets, and can put you in a disadvantage during close-range fights or one-on-one duels.
>>47311183>1. War Fan. Could be used as both a ranged throwing weapon and a close range weapon. Can be snuck in places where more traditional weapons may not be allowed.We Sneaky Princess.
>>47311183Shortbow and War fan. Short bow more if we cant do both.
>>47311048What about a crossbow that can shoot the kunai and other assorted things it be rad as hell to get a gas powered crossbow
>>47311183Only one, I suppose? War fan, why not.
>>473111833We need that bow goodness for our Hime-sama, though1would be useful if we got caught short-range, so both maybe?
>>473111833 and 2
>>47311183War fan to show we're nobility.
>>473111831 and 3wait till we get better at melee for 2
>>47311183>1. War Fan. Could be used as both a ranged throwing weapon and a close range weapon. Can be snuck in places where more traditional weapons may not be allowed.>3. Bow. Both Shortbows and Longbows are available. Great range and rate of fire once practiced. Can be difficult to aim at fast targets, and can put you in a disadvantage during close-range fights or one-on-one duels.Longbow for the real long ranges, war fans for close range. Just war fan if we can only have one.
>>473111833 Bows are fun1 Need a melee backup
>>47311183Fan for now but can we get a bow later on?
I'll breakdown bows, a little further.A longbow or a crossbow are both viable, but are heavy and somewhat cumbersome to switch out to on the fly- they'd be your more primary weapons. And Anon is right, a longbow would require some strength training to use as well. Not as much as the naginata, though.Shortbow is lighter and easier to swap in for other weapons or put away. Easier and faster to fire, as well.You can buy more than one, of course. You could probably buy out the whole shop if you wanted. But that would be irresponsible.
>>47311267short bow for nowlong bow for later when tsuki finally gets gud. the carrot dangling at the end of the get swole stick
>>47311267I'd love a mechanical crossbow but... for now shortbow and warfan, quick-swapping is just that important
>>47311267>>47311302This, plus war fan
Seeing lots of votes for both Bow and War Fan.You can definitely buy both. I'll start writing, feels free to come to a consensus on what kinda bow you guys would want~
>>47311267I say longbow, because if shit gets bad we can at least use it as a staff
>>47311330Longbow. In magic ninja land, the only reasons to use a bow are ridiculous long range or bullshit penetration.
>>47311440We are too weak to use it effectively. We gotta bulk up a bit.
You let Nori go first. It’ll better to surprise her if you can keep your choices a secret until tomorrow. True to her word, she only seems to top off her basic supplies of tags, kunai, paper bombs, and the like. She seems very confident in her skills.After she makes her purchases and wanders off a bit to browse, to flag down Tenten.“Come to a decision, Tsuki-hime?” she says with a smile.“I would like a war fan, I think. Metal.” You state, matter of factly. “Very like you, Tsuki-hime,” she laughs. “Anything else?”“A shortbow, and two quivers full of arrows. Standard metal tipped wooden arrows, for now.”You figure if you decide to stick to ranged combat you could spend more money on more customizable or chakra-conducting materials. Best not to spend father’s money frivolously.“Yes ma’am!” she salutes, then runs off to gather your new things. Always happy to get the sale, that one. Not that you don’t enjoy spending the money, though. You catch yourself before you start laughing aloud again.As you wait, Tenten’s head pops up from around the corner.“Would you like the fan to say anything, Tsuki-hime?”1. Yes! (Write-In)2. No, that’s tacky.
>>47311521> "Bitch, please."Dunno, what should it say? "Beautiful but deadly"?
>>473115213. A pattern that gets more menacing the further the fan is extending. no message.
I'm coming in late please excuse me.>>47309982Although it's not stated anywhere, or even hinted at, I've always felt that there would be at least some Senju descendants in the Village that don't have the name anymore. As a clan and especially under Hashirama they were big on brotherhood, so I figure there'd have been some extra-clan marriages. /shrugs>>47310308My shounen experiences tell me different...>>47310348Ebisu's strength is his superb technical skills and keen mind. He's about busting out clever schemes, cunning tricks and precision jutsu. More like Kakashi than Gai, but less emphasis on the elemental stuff.>>473115212. No3. What about a pattern of swirling leaves? Gotta be repin our village out there for all the dirty peasants to see.
>>473115211. Class Divider
>>47311558Can we not be edgy
>>47311521Can I just get my Clans symbol on it?
>>47311521Just put the Clan name, or the character for moon.
>>47311577I'll back this
>>47311521>1. Yes! (Write-In)the once and future queen
>>47311521>Yes! How about "Beauteous Moon"?I hope I spelled it right. I keep autocorrect off.
>>47311521>>47311577>>47311586Clan name will suffice.
>>47311521>1. Yes! (Write-In)Clan symbol when the fan's fully open.>>47311550For a moment, I genuinely thought you wanted the fan to say "Bitch, please."It was a happy moment.
>>47311521the phases of the moon
>>47311636>>47311599>>47311586why are we obsessed with moons all of a sudden
Moons and Clan Name. Could throw a symbol on it too, if I had a design for it :(Writing, and will continue to monitor thread for suggestions.
the moon should be a crescent moon>>47311651tsuki means moon
>>47311636That's better. Change my vote >>47311621to this.>>47311651Because Tsuki.
>>47311674should just be moons I thinkclan name might make being incognito more difficult
>>47311674>>47311690Make it a hidden symbol.
>>47311746I think a dark blue or black would look better
“Hmm, yes… that would be nice. Norihime! Let the cowards know the name of the clan heiress that has brought their pitiful existence to an end! Ohohoho!~“...and if you could put some lunar designs on it as well, that’d be nice. Maybe the phases of the moon on each segment?” You break off mid laugh to finish off your request. “Right, should be doable. I can have it made for you, although the art will take a little extra time. If you want, I can throw in a spare without the ornamentation, at a discount.” she replies.She’s nothing is not a good salesperson. “Right, go ahead. It will serve me better to have a spare, anyway.”You see the sun beginning to set outside. You probably have enough time to hit somewhere else, if you really wanted to spend more time with Nori. You ponder this while Tenten finishes up.1. Go home. We’ll see Nori tomorrow. 2. Sure, we can go somewhere else. (Where?)
>>47311847Go home. Make dad proud and stuff.
>>473118471. Go home. We’ll see Nori tomorrow.
>>473118471. Go home
>>47311847>1. Go home. We’ll see Nori tomorrow.team bonding should be with everybody
>>47311847>1. Go home. We’ll see Nori tomorrow.
>>47311847>1. Go home. We’ll see Nori tomorrow.best not to spend too much time with the ruffianwe might catch something
>>47311847>1. Go home. We’ll see Nori tomorrow.See dad. Be spoiled by dad. Have happy family times before the Earth Nation attacks.Or worse, training with Ebisu.
Going Home. We can see Dad and let him know we spent some of his money today. Writing.
>>47311911So we are basically Alpha 3 Karin (Before she has her character development and becomes a better person) and Nori is our Sakura (Rival that is eventually a good friend). Did I get that right?
After a few moments, Tenten returns with your purchases, along with a satchel belt.“Figured you’d want this, too. Gotta gear up, right?” She smiles.This girl is dangerous…“Yes, that’d be perfect. Thanks for watching out for me, Tenten. Just charge it to my father’s business account. I’ll let him know once I head home.” you say, collecting your things, and putting things where they belong.“As usual, Tsuke-hime,” She says with a smile. “Good luck with your sensei tomorrow. I hear he’s a little.. intense.”You laugh. “He’s quite the subject of rumors, but I’m not too worried. Nothing I cannot handle, right?”You give her a confident smile, then hail to Nori. She buys a few more small items, then the two of you depart.“Seeya, Tenten!”, you say as you exit,”Good luck yourself tomorrow!”She laughs, and thanks you in turn.As you walk towards the center of town, you tell Nori that you’re going to head home. “That’s fine, I was going to stop by Ichiraku’s anyway. Brother said he’d treat me once I passed my exams.” You can practically hear her stomach grumbling from here. Very undignified.“You know, Princess, you aren’t so bad, when you aren’t being a brat, you know?” she says while chuckling. “I’m actually looking forward to tomorrow. Ebisu-sensei may be a pervert, but I’m sure he has much to teach us. Anyway, see you tomorrow!” You say goodbye as Nori departs, and begin heading towards home. As you do, you think about your home….(What is your house like?)1. Huge manse, befitting your family.2. Medium sized, but very well furnished. Plenty big enough for your father and yourself. 3. Penthouse built atop your family’s corporate offices. Lavishly furnished, but not that big.>Write-In
>>47312097>1. Huge manse, befitting your family.Go big
>>47312097>1. Huge manse, befitting your family.go full rich bitch
>>47312097>1. Huge manse, befitting your family.
>Oujo MCOh, this should be good>>473120971. Huge manse, befitting your familyBetter go all outI noticed that you copped a couple of lines in your first thread from my own. I'm flattered.
>>473120972. We don't want to be wasting daddies money on a huge upkeep when we could be spending it on gear.
>>47312097Let's go with a penthouse. I feel like that'd be perfect for some reason.
Rolled 3 (1d3)>>47312097rolling as well
>>47312097>3. Penthouse built atop your family’s corporate offices. Lavishly furnished, but not that big.It's just us and dad. Big house just feels empty.
>>47312131So when are you actually going to finish your quest?
>>47312122Eh, changing vote to penthouse. Would be cozier(sp?), I think.
>>473120973. Trendy and with the best amenities.
>>47312097>1Just big enough for we don't get bored.
>>47312131Gotta stick with what I know, right? You got me back into this crazy universe, so it's entirely your fault.I'm trying to be as original as I can, especially these early time periods
Overwhelmingly 1.Ohohoho-ing at light speed.
You begin the hike up Hokage mountain. You’re not entirely sure what possessed father when he decided to build what he calls the “Family Manor”. His plans were so large that they didn’t really fit well within the established limits of Konoha… so he purchased a swathe of land on the backside of the mountain the very faces of of our village’s leaders. Atop this land, he built his ridiculous manor. Honestly, it’s a bit much. The legions of serving staff, and groundskeepers, the guards…For just you and your father. It gets a little lonely, sometimes. But at least you always had plenty of room for your friends from the academy to visit. Father always seems to have guests, as well.Dignitaries, other businessmen. Lately you’ve even seen ninja from other villages visiting. Nothing too scandalous, of course. It’s not as if the Tsuchikage or Mizukage are personally gracing your “humble” home. You do have one friend in the manor, though. It’s…1. Your beloved pet! (Queue pet vote)2. One of the serving staff3. Dad. He’s a bit eccentric, but he takes care of me, and tries hardest to be a good father. >Write-in
>>47312311>2. One of the serving staffTrusted butler?
>>47312311> Serving staffOld jounin butler bodygaurd is go
>>47312311>One of the serving staff. Obviously a maid who's taught us about being a girl, as well as whom we've confided our secrets in.
>>473123113. Dad. He’s a bit eccentric, but he takes care of me, and tries hardest to be a good father.
>>473123112. One of the serving staffWe need an Alfred.
>>47312311>3. Dad. He’s a bit eccentric, but he takes care of me, and tries hardest to be a good father.
>>47312311>2. One of the serving staff>>47312325Yes. Like the butler from hi score girl
>>47312311>3. Dad. He’s a bit eccentric, but he takes care of me, and tries hardest to be a good father.We Daddy's little Princess now.
>>473123112 trusted jonin butler is a must.
>>47312335I like this one. After all, since our mom is dead, we'd need someone to teach us how to be a proper grill.
>>47312311>2. One of the serving staffAlfred+maid+ninja = sane Roberta. Yes.
>>47312334Combat butler you say?I've never so much as read the TvTropes page but sure why not.> Le Retired Bodyguard ButlerHe can tut over our continued lack of physical training in a very professional manner while secretly fretting and plotting to help us get stronger.
>>47312386That's even better.Scrap >>47312394Bloodhound is a go.
Going with serving staff. Seems conflicted on Maid vs ButlerSo I'll put it up for another vote so dad voters have a voice. 1. Maid who helped us become a lady. 2. Old Jonin butler, helped train us.
>>47312436>1. Maid who helped us become a lady.
>>47312436>2. Old Jonin butler, helped train us.
>>47312436>1. Maid who helped us become a lady. Mother figure/childhood friend is a go!
>>47312436>1. Maid who helped us become a lady.but with some combat in there too!
>>47312436>Old Jonin butler, helped train us.
>>47312436>Old Jonin butler, helped train us
>>47312436>2. Old Jonin butler, helped train us.He be our Alfred but Asian-ish.
What if we had both
>>47312436>Maid who helped us become a lady. She's the only one who knows about our crush, Rock Lee!
>>47312436>2. Old Jonin butler, helped train us.Be A buddy of dad's.
>>47312473Yeah. Kinda ok with having both.
>>47312493No, I mean two servantsWe can afford that, right?
>>47312473I like this plan. The maid is our Alfred. The butler is our Roberta.>>47312493And now I have meido Anko in my head. I didn't know I needed that.
>>47312507>meido Anko. Let this be canon. Maybe she even makes us have tea ceremonies with her? Adorable!
>>47312518Anko isn't classy enough to be a maid
You can have both. Vote will determine who is more important, and depth of character, then. Writing! And gathering anime butler images.
>>47312529She's like Roberta. Not actually a maid, just a mentally unstable, very lethal bodyguard who makes you tea.
>>47312529Anno pours tea like a drunk red neck pours piss beer
>>47312548Yeah, to wash down all those dangoFatty
>>47312537I say Maid is more important. She'd be the mother or aunt figure in our life. >>47312548Isn't it canon that one of Anko's favorite things to do is hold elaborate tea ceremonies?
>>47312569Second favourite. Her favourite thing to do is KILL OROCHIMARU.Sadly, she never gets to do it. Scheduling conflicts and the like.
>>47312584There is a very long line of people that want Anime Micheal Jackson dead.
>>47312584yeah, sadly the god who writes her world has next to no clue as to how to handle female characters.>>47312599Oh, but then he achieved immortality and everything was fine and dandy
>>47312640And then he died.
>>47312661Didn't he just become a mother?
Naming things is hard. Still writing, sorry for the delay.
>>47312640>yeah, sadly the god who writes her world has next to no clue as to how to handle female characters.And he made her a landwhale 2nd time skip
As you finally come upon the manse grounds, you can see him. Danzo, a friend of your father’s from way back. He’s probably been watching over you all night, knowing him. When he began getting too old for active ninja work, your father took him on as a “butler”- although it primarily in name only. He’s more your bodyguard than anything else, and gave you a decent amount of your training. The actual serving duties fall to the legion of maids your father employs. Including the head maid, Maru. She’s been something of a surrogate mother to you, in some ways. She’s never been afraid to tell your father off, either. He usually just laughs it off as she fumes at him, though.He greets you as you pass through the gate. “Welcome back, my lady. Decided to play nice with the Hokage’s daughter? “If she’s to be my teammate, I must. To do otherwise would be a waste of time- despite my personal feelings.” you respond. This is probably another of his tests- of which there are many. There is no price for failure of course, but you can always tell when the old man is disappointed in you. He laughs. “As if out of a textbook, Tsuki-dono. I see you remember my lessons well. Just remember, leaders make tough choices. There may come a day where you have to sacrifice one of them to save the village. Not a pleasant thought, I know, but as a shinobi you must be prepared. “I know, Danzo, I know.”You wave the old man off, for now. You’re getting hungry, and you doubt the old man is going to throw more tests at you before dinner with your father.
“Ebisu stopped by earlier. Dropped off a letter for you. One for your father as well, which I’ve already delivered.” Danzo says, his tone slightly more serious. “Your training is to begin tomorrow morning at dawn, by the Memorial Stone. A somber meeting place, but I suspect his intentions are good.”“Thank you, Danzo. I might stop by later, for a bit more training. I may need an edge, going forward.” you respond, mapping out your route for the morning.“Of course, my lady.”>More writing Incoming
>>47313021After Root folded, he must have been hurting for employmentGood thing he did nothing wrong
>>47313021I am doubly suspicious of this choice!
>>47313021probably using this as a cover for ROOT and leeching money from the family
>>47312992>>47313001This...This is bad...Either Daddy is going to pull some serious shit or Danzo's not as much of a war hawk since the Third is still around to be kick ass and Make the Leaf Great Again.Fuck who am i kidding Danzo's going to have some type of angle here isn't he?
Oh balls. Butler Danzo.Butler Danzo that we trust implicitly.We are so screwed.
>>47313044Well, he did go full "Remove Uchiha", and made Tobirama proud
>>47313057Minato is not trump. Danzo is trump. "Everything going wrong is this group's fault. Lets segregate them to a walled off area away from everyone else."
Anons have become a panic
You step inside the entrance hall of the manor, and are immediately assaulted with a thousand sounds and smells. Crashing, banging, and the distinct sounds of Maru’s voice commanding the waitstaff. “Dinner will probably be interesting tonight…” You muse. You take this chance to head up to your room. The long hallways and empty guest rooms pass you by as you make your way to wing of the manor where both your father’s room and your own are. You’ll need to tidy up and change- Maru won’t have you dressed for the field whilst at dinner. You open the door to your room- a small golden crown on a moon backdrop decorates your door. Immediately you are enveloped in a sea of purple. Your dark ceiling with small white lights, representing the stars and constellations. It’s sad, isn’t it? A lonely girl named after the moon with a fascination with the heavens above… You cannot helped but laugh at how cliche it all sounds to you. Wasting no time, you flop down on your fluffy bed, just taking a moment to absorb the days events. Training is tomorrow….You hype yourself up. Of course it is! You’re a ninja now, just like your mother! Those lesser ninja shall know the might of the Norihime! You exhale loudly, then rise from your bed. Quickly, you change into your dinner attire- a simple pale silver dress, with matching shoes. Nothing too flashy today. You’re too beat for it. Besides, nobody important is visiting, you needn’t doll yourself up needlessly.What shall you do?1. Wait for dinner. You wish to rest a bit.2. Go investigate the dining hall, and see Maru.3. Go speak to Danzo some more. The old man always has wisdom to impart.4. Go visit father’s study.
>>47313143Minato is also smart enough to stop Danzo, quite possibly by having Jiraiya and the 3rd watch him like a hawk.
>>47313208>4. Go visit father’s study.Bug dad for headpats.
>>47313208>4. Go visit father’s study
>>47313208>4. Go visit father’s study.
>>47313208>Go speak to Danzo some more. The old man always has wisdom to impart.I am inerested in what he has to say actually...
>>473132084> GOTTA GO TELL DADDY HOW COOL WE ARE JUST LIKE MUM
>>47313176Are you kidding? This is great. Finally something fresh>>47313208>4. Go visit father’s study
>>47313208>3Danzo seems like a wise and trustworthy sort.
>>47313208>2. Go investigate the dining hall, and see Maru.Defeat internal panic with maid.
>>47313208>3. Go speak to Danzo some more. The old man always has wisdom to impart.
>>47313208Go visit father’s study.
Going to visit Daddy. We can always talk to Danzo later~Writing.
You leave your room, and walk slowly towards your father’s study and the far end of the hall. The door is open- that’s good. He isn’t to be disturbed when the door is shut, after all. You knock the secret knock that you, your father, Danzo, and Maru know. He can always tell it’s you, anyhow, but best to follow procedure.“My beloved princess! Please, come in.” He shouts from inside.You mentally prepare yourself to meet with your father.“Hello, Father!” You exclaim, matching his tone.You stride into his study, a lavish room filled with bookcases and tackboards covered in paper. Father is always working, even when he isn’t. That’s the price of genius, you suppose- you never know when he’ll stop mid conversation to start writing something down, or make a sudden illustration on a document he may be working on.But he’s your father, and you love him. Besides, far be it from you to question his methods- he built everything you see around you now. But a small part of you is thankful you take after your mother.“I hear my precious child passed her genin exams today! This is wonderful news! He claps loudly as you walk into his view. He’s smoking again- both you and Maru have tried getting him to stop, but he won’t- says it calms his nerves.Well, Father, I….1. Confront him about paying off your examiners 2. Don’t confront him>Write In
>>47313414>2. Don’t confront him
>>47313414>1. Confront him about paying off your examinersPout.
>>47313414>1. Confront him about paying off your examiners
>>47313414>2. Don’t confront himThis should be a happy day. Do not sully it with little things like unethical and highly irresponsible child soldier test fixing.
>>47313414>2. Don’t confront him> Brag about how good our jutsu scores are
>>47313414I overheard the examiners talking. They sounded like you may have bought them off. I know you are trying to do what is best for me, but what is best for me is to succeed on my own merit. I may be your princess, but I am a ninja of the leaf now as well. I cannot be a liability to my teammates in the field. If Iruka sensei thinks I am not ready, maybe I should build my fundamentals more?
>>47313414>Don’t confront him
Looks like we aren't confronting daddy today~Writing.
repression is the mature thing to do
I love how this character is shaping up. Motivated by a desire to not only live up to the legacy of the mother she idolizes, but to prove to herself and the world that she can get by on her own merots, rather than the advantages she was born with.There's fun stuff to be had there.
>>47313606*MeritsFucky fucking stupid ham fingers
“Yes Father! I passed all of my examinations!” you report with gusto. He definitely paid off your examiners- but you aren’t one to question your father. Besides, you would’ve been devastated had your examiners actually failed you. They really should make those tests more accommodating, anyway. Not everyone is some vulgar brute.He sets his cigarette the ashtray on his desk, and places one of his large hands squarely on the top your head. “That’s my girl. Your mother would’ve been very proud of you.”That… hurts. But you keep the emotion contained.“Oh, and I bought some supplies earlier as well. There will be a charge coming from the town’s weapon shop- you know the one.” You report.“Consider it taken care of my dear. You haven’t bankrupted me yet!” His loud guffawing laughter returns- it’s infectious, and always has been. This eases the pain of his earlier remark ever so slightly. “Tomorrow you report to Ebisu-sensei for training, correct? This letter I received told me as such.” he says as he produces a small envelope from his desk“Yes father, I do. Though I am a bit worried about his qualifications. The other jonin seem to be a lot more…. Respected. Not to mention accomplished.” you answer, a bit of shame taking hold as you question your new sensei.
“Don’t worry my little shinobi.” he pats your head again. “He’s very good at teaching your strengths. Besides, if you find his teachings insufficient, you know Danzo would be more than happy to train you himself. Consider this team, and your teacher, as a step along the path. This path will lead you to success! Fame! Wealth! Status!” when he reaches these last lines, he poses, and holds the pose. You can tell he’s trying his best to encourage you.“Father, we already have those last two….” you chide him gently. “Yes my daughter, we do. However, the stars above are your limit- and you may surpass even those. What you want to achieve, I truly believe you can.>More writing incoming
So I kinda love eccentric, crazy wealthy, and adorably loving civilian father. He is pretty great.
>>47313686I think we all do. He still shouldn't have fixed our exam, but it's obvious he did it out of all the fatherly love in his pure goofball heart.
>>47313686calling it now, he's the secret leader of Akatsuki..
>>47313711I... wouldn't go that far.
>>47313711No, he's the primary backer of the equalists. Out to tear down the corrupt ninja regime because HIS WIFE DIED WAAAH.
>>47313711I don't know about that, but I bet daddy has paid for them once or twice.
>>47313711probably Orochimaru supporter"gibe money and I bring back your ded waifu"kay
“Now, I do believe it’s time for dinner. Come, little one. Maru will not let us be late for your celebration feast.”-----------------------------------------------------------------You are full. More full than you’ve ever been before. You doubt you could ever eat this much again. For the first time in your young life, you identify with Choji Akimichi. How does he possibly eat this much on a consistent basis?------------------------------------------------------------------You say goodnight to you father, and he hugs you warmly. He reminds you that he is proud of you, and that no matter what, you are his favorite little shinobi. You blush a little- you hate it when he gets overly gushy like this. As you you head down the hall to your room, you see Danzo outside your bedroom. Not that uncommon of a sight- he may have some insight for you before tomorrow.“My lady. Your father tells me you are worried about the quality of your training going forward.” he starts, speaking clearly. “I am inclined to agree with you, though he may be able to shore-up some of your weaker aspects to acceptable levels. I fear my physical frailty has let you down.”“Nonsense Danzo!” you reply. “I had some of the highest Ninjutsu, Genjutsu, and Chakra control amongst my peers. You’ve trained me well.”He laughs. A gentle laugh.“You flatter an old man. But I won’t keep you from your sleep. I just wanted to extend you an offer. If you want, after tomorrow morning, I can train you more. Before, I wasn’t going to push you as hard, but I see you are serious about wanting to progress.”“As a result- if you training under me going forward, we can continue. I will continue to help you grow as both a shinobi, and as a person. Also- now that you have graduated, I can begin to teach you non-academy jutsu, if it pleases you.What do you say?1. Accept2. Refuse3. Push the question off. You’ll wait until tomorrow to answer him.
>>47313778>1. AcceptTeach me dat Kinjutsu, Bandage Butler.
>>47313778>1. AcceptAw hell yeah. He may be shady but he's got dem skillzzz
>>47313778>1. AcceptThank you Danzo-Dono then bow.
>>47313778I assume this is in adition to Ebisu in which case1. Accept
>>47313778>1. AcceptI can't see why Tsuki would decline
>>473137781. Accept.We are going to learn some filthy jutsu from this back stabbing fucker.
>>47313778>3. Push the question off. You’ll wait until tomorrow to answer him.We need to see what Ebisu's training is like, see how well we can acclimatise to it before we commit to an additional training regimen.
>>47313817meta-wise, it probably leaves us with less opportunities to socialize with people other than our team-mates..
Sounds like we're accepting Danzo's proposal. Good, Good....Also, I'll be calling it here for tonight, after I write up this final piece. As normal I'll hang out for a bit afterwards.
>>47313878Wargle's gone Palpatine.We may have made a slight tactical error.
He smiles. He rarely does that, you recall. Danzo must have had a hard life.“I am honored, my lady. I will do my best to keep our training regimen concise, but impactful, as not to interrupt you ability to take upon missions with your team. Ebisu-sensei will also be going over a lot of basic training with you, so do your best to absorb what he knows.”“Yes, Danzo-sensei. I will do as you ask of me. I can only hope to keep up with the pace of your training.”His laugh returns. “Please, Tsuki-dono. No need for the formalities. Your sensei is Ebisu. I am but Danzo, your humble servant.You bid him goodnight, and head into your room. Tomorrow is going to be a very busy day.----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
>>47313908What? nah Danzo's the most trustworthy guy in naruto.
>>47313953He smiles like Gordon Brown. It's just unnatural.
>>47313953a puppy just died
And that's a wrap. I know everyone wanted to dig into some Ebisu action, but that will come soon, I promise!Maybe even some combatTwitter is @WargleQM for those who care about that sort of thing- and I'll go ahead and archive the thread. I'll be adding some more information to the pastebin over the next few days, certain stats, brief character information, etc. Next thread will most likely be this upcoming saturday, as it's my next day off. Maybe friday if I feel ambitious.
>>47313972>>47313976Clearly, he just needs more hugs. We should make a point to hug him often.
>>47313976Danzo is an animal lover, like good old Frank here.
>>47313989Mind if we get any new/ updated opinions Wargle?
>>47313996But if we hug him we might smother the silently screaming wooden hokageface arm to death. And that's an awful kill to start off our professional murdering career on.
>>47314003I'm going to tone them down slightly as to reveal less OOC information, but sure. Not much has changed since last thread, minus the introduction of Dad and Danzo.
>>47314022> an awful killBut we could claim that we killed a zombie Hashirama, surely that's worth some positive reputation.Also we are 12, I'm pretty sure that his shoulder is out of our reach for hugging anyway...
From the top~Nori - Opinion of you has improved. Still thinks you’re spoiled and a brat- but she sees that you’re attempting to be a good teammate.Hinata - Is happy you invited her out, even if she couldn’t go.Tenten is happy you bought a lot.Dad loves his precious angel and is happy she passedDanzo is satisfied that you accepted his proposal, and looks forward to teaching you.
>>47314092>>Dad loves his precious angel and is happy she passed
>>47314092Our dad is the best. I just want to hug him through the screen.
>>47314092Tsuki has hair drills yes?
>>47314134We haven't done a final appearance vote, although the idea is definitely popular. I figure it will be handled next thread, one of the following over the weekend.
>>47314134But of course. It's just no that same Ohohoho-ing without some good drills.
>>47314134The proper question is how many drills does she have?5 is my vote
>>47314134Drills aren't really ninja appropriate hair.Especially if we're going to use a bow.
>>47314180How about a drill ponytail?
Man, if only this quest didn't start at 4 AM for me, i would be able to participate...
cought it still
I vote three drills. Two in front, and a pony tail in back. And please drawfag, add that mesh armor. I need it.
