Shinobi Quest #4This 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/WiPdCqLHPrevious Threads: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Shinobi%20QuestLast thread, our character Tsuki Norihime woke bright and early to attend her first day of training under her new sensei. After swiping breakfast, she attended said training, and took part in Ebisu’s version of the bell test, where the team was subjected to an audio genjutsu they hadn’t been prepared for. Being the only member of Team 7 to break the genjutsu unaided, a poorly timed slap awoke some sort of beast within Nori. Everything went according to plan, however, as she was able to time taking a hit in such a way to not only distract Nori, but grab the bells as well. A very successful day, in which she celebrated by shopping with Hinata. (Appearance votes were made!)Now, we move forward in time, to the next day. Having accepted Danzo’s offers for more training, and Ebisu-sensei not asking you to report in, it would be a good time to take him up on that offer…
Oh boy, time for ohohoho
“Tsuki-dono! It’s morning! Your breakfast is waiting!” a voice commands, cutting through the morning haze of your mind. Maru, most likely.“I’ll be down… in a bit, Maru.” you grumble. While you’d been able to sleep in, you felt like a stone buried in the fluff of your mattress. Rubbing your midsection, you wince. While the medical-nin had healed any damage to your body, you were still sore from Nori’s hit. Probably would be for a while, too. Thinking back, you can’t help but thinking how weird that whole situation was- although you suspect you’ll find out what it was all about, eventually.Rising slowly, you shuffle over to your armoire, and take the time to choose an outfit for the day. Style was important, of course, but you knew you’d be training today, and you suspected Danzo’s training wouldn’t be any easier than taking another one of that barbaric girl’s punches. After dressing, you do a few stretches. Finally, you do your hair, spending the time to organize your teal locks into the signature drill curls you preferred. Looking at yourself in the mirror, seeing the amber eyes you share with your father, you smile. A statuesque picture of perfection! You decide to….1. Take your time with breakfast. You owe Maru after yesterday’s hit and run.2. Opt for a quick breakfast. Don’t want to keep the old man waiting too long!3. Skip breakfast entirely- you aren’t hungry. Training is paramount!
>>47415262>2. Opt for a quick breakfast. Don’t want to keep the old man waiting too long!
>>47415244Hells yeah. Time for non-academy level jutsu!
>>47415262>2. Opt for a quick breakfast. Don’t want to keep the old man waiting too long!Don't take too long, but we do need something in us if we're going to be training hard.
>>47415262>1. Got to celebrate! Plus, it's got to be a good breakfast anyways. That, and it's no use going out on an empty stomach.
>>474152621. Take your time with breakfast. You owe Maru after yesterday’s hit and run.> I'm drunk at work. Let's go!
>>47415262>1. Take your time with breakfast. You owe Maru after yesterday’s hit and run.
>>47415262>2. Opt for a quick breakfast. Don’t want to keep the old man waiting too long!Keep practicing our ninja skills by stealing muffins.
Sounds like it's breakfast time!Writing.
So what do you guys think Danzo is going to teach us? I'm hoping for the Body Flicker Technique and we just master that to the pint an enemy doesn't know where we are.
You decide not to tempt fate any further than you have already within the last 24 hours. Danzo of all people knows how Maru can be- you’d be surprised if his old bones were able to dodge her wrath, either.Wasting no time, you leave your room and head to the foyer, then down the main staircase, heading towards the dining area. You can smell it- she’s probably outdone herself. Again.Once in the dining area, you walk past the long table where formal suppers and luncheons are held. As usual, it’s deep mahogany surface has been shined to perfection- it could double as a mirror. No need for the formal area this morning, though. You continue onward, to the small veranda just outside. As you exit, the cool morning wind brushes against your face. Beautiful, as always. The Land of Fire’s weather is always so pleasant, especially in the spring. You sigh, out of nothing more than a small sense of contentedness. Set before you, on a small glass-topped table, is your breakfast. It’s surprisingly moderate, considering the chef. Maru smiles at you, from across the table. You sit.“Ah, the young madam has risen from her slumber. Did you sleep well?” Maru holds the smile- if she recognized your previous theft, no hint of it was on her face.“Yes I did, Maru. Thank you for asking.” Your response is immediate- although you could’ve had the worst sleep of your life, and you would’ve said the same. You share some some minor conversation, discussing the weather, your father, and his plans for the day. Again, it seems Maru is intent on dragging him outside of his office- you wish her luck.As she laughs in response, you take a sip of your tea- you’ve given it a few minutes to cool. It’s….1. Bitter, as tea should be.2. Sweet, just like you like it.
>>47415680I'm down for anything. Preferably anything that allows us to go Ohohoho~! better.
>>47415692>2. Sweet, just like you like it.sweet tooth
>>47415692>1. Bitter, as tea should be.Our body is a temple.
>>47415692>2. Sweet, just the way you like it.
>>47415692>2. Sweet, just like you like it.
>>47415692>>2. Sweet, just like you like it.
>>47415692Bitter like my soul
Sweet tooth is it~ Writing.
You take a sip- flavorful. A bit of milk, with hints of cherries and chocolate.And very, very sweet.You know bitter teas are better for you, and would go farther to waking you up, but you cannot help it. It’s your favorite, and she’s made this tea for you since you were just a small girl. After taking another sip, you set the cup down gently. She’d scold you if you finished your tea before eating your breakfast- even though her tea is probably the best part of the meal.Keeping idle conversation, you take a leisurely look around the manor grounds. The lands keepers and servants go about their business, many of them greeting you respectfully as they catch your gaze.Eventually, a lull in the conversation forms as Maru begins to eat her meal- spartan, by comparison to yours. You could probably take this time to ask her something, as you eat.1. Ask Maru a question (What?)2. Don’t. Focus on finishing breakfast.
>>47415874>2. Don’t. Focus on finishing breakfast.
>>47415874>1. do you think father still misses my mother? Is that why he spends so much time at work? Why he has never remarried?
>>47415874Hmmm... Not sure what we should ask her, so for now I'll say 2, if only because I can't think up a good question to ask.
>>47415925Nevermind, going to support >>47415922 this, because I like it a lot.
>>47415922I like it. Supporting.
>>47415922To go along with that. "Even for political reasons? Surely there are windows with status in the uchiha or hyugga
>>47415922Gotta go with this one boss.
Time to get sentimental.Writing.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=afKAk-UnSpAMight as well ask. You’ve been wondering about it, of late, and you doubt he’d give you a real answer.“Maru? Mind if I ask you something?” You hear your own voice- it sounds small, unsure. This won’t do at all. The Norihime must be strong. “Of course, mistress, speak your mind” she answers; her voice soft, to match you own.“Does Father still mourn for Mother? Is that why he buries himself in his work? Why he’s never bothered to marry again, even for political reasons?”Her eyes soften, and she turns her gaze downward. “Master Yoru… he does grieve for your mother. Every night, I’d wager. You know that your father is a passionate man- he puts his entire being into everything he does. This included his love for your mother. When your mother passed to bring you into this world, Tsuki-dono, I suspect this love passed on to you.”She reaches forward, and places her hand on yours.“I know your father can seem distant, but he does everything for you. All of this, his work- it’s all for you. If he didn’t have you, I don’t think he’d be able to keep himself going.”You don’t know what to say- your Father has always seemed so bright, with the joy he brought to you and all those around him…“As for remarrying, it was out of the question. The prestigious shinobi families have no need for a rich merchant, and such a marriage would have been a loveless, dismal affair. It is for the best that those petty hangers on have long stopped coming- for years they would come, offering your father the world. They would always leave, taking offense to your father’s indifference.”You had no idea. In your oldest memories, you do remember visitors, herds of men and women coming to visit your father. The manor was new, then. Emptier, in a way, before most of the serving staff had come. Maru and Danzo had shielded you from much of this, you suspect.
“Thank you, Maru. I doubt Father would be so honest with me.” you reply, doing your best to give her a smile. She sighs, quietly.“You’re growing up, Tsuki-dono. Your Father will come to realize this shortly, I suspect.”This conversation has given you some more information about you parents- although to know more you’d probably need to ask Danzo, or your Father directly.You…1. Finish up eating and move along. Dwelling on this negative topic will put you in a foul mood.”2. Spend a little more time with Maru, to clear your head.
>>47416314>1. Finish up eating and move along. Dwelling on this negative topic will put you in a foul mood.”Time to move on!
>>47416314>1. Finish up eating and move along. Dwelling on this negative topic will put you in a foul mood.”
>>47416314>>1. Finish up eating and move along. Dwelling on this negative topic will put you in a foul mood.”Don't dig too deep too soon. Slow and steady on the lore bits.
>>47416314>2. Character. Development.
>>47416314>1. Finish up eating and move along. Dwelling on this negative topic will put you in a foul mood.”There is no time to Ohohoho~! here. We must move on to activities where Ohohoho~!-ing is appropriate.
>>47416314>1. Finish up eating and move along. Dwelling on this negative topic will put you in a foul mood.”It's time to learn powerful jutsu and questionable ethics.
>>47416314>1. Finish up eating and move along. Dwelling on this negative topic will put you in a foul mood.”Time for a training montage
Sounds like it's time to move on. Writing.
The silence isn’t uncomfortable, per se, although you do feel like something has passed between the two of you.After finishing your tea, you thank Maru for the meal, and her continued service to your family.She just laughs, and smiles at you. “Ever the polite young woman. Seems I taught you well.”You shudder internally. Thoughts of etiquette training had long since left you nightmares, but it wouldn’t be good to forget them entirely. After bidding farewell to Maru, you head back inside. A passing servant tells you that Danzo awaits you below, near his quarters.Why does he sleep underground, anyway? He’s an odd old man.You walk steadily to the far end of the manor, and then follow the stairs downward. Eventually, you pass the wine storage cellar, and come to the end of the passageway. A simple door of iron, unmarked, leads to Danzo’s quarters.You knock.(cont.)
“Come in, Tsuki-dono. I’ve been waiting. Did you eat a filling meal?” Danzo’s voice greets you from the other side. You enter, and respond. “Yes, Maru’s breakfasts are as good as ever.”Danzo’s quarters are plain, with no ornamentation beyond the symbol of Konoha, painted on the far wall.“Good. I hope you’ve taken in the fresh air- we’re going to be inside for most of the rest of today.” his voice doesn’t seem to belie his intent. You question this immediately. “Inside?”“Yes, inside. Further below, in fact.” he says without a hint of humor in his voice.You’re puzzled. As you ponder what he means, Danzo walks over to the Konoha symbol, and presses inward, gently. A false wall gives way, leading into a small hallway. At the far end, what looks to be an elevator awaits.He instructs you to follow him, and you do. He opens the iron shutter on the elevator, and closes it behind the two of you. From his robe, he produces a small key, which he inserts into a console near the front of the elevator. The contraption lurches, and then descends, slowly.In the near darkness of the elevator shaft, Danzo poses you a query.“Tell me, Tsuki-dono. Have you ever heard of ROOT?”You respond....1. No, I haven't. What is that?2. The name is familiar... although I cannot really place it.
>>47416689>2. The name is familiar... although I cannot really place it.
>>47416689>No, I haven't. What is that?Ohboyohboyohboyohboy!
>>47416689>2. The name is familiar... although I cannot really place it.Oh god damnit! Still the same Danzo.
>>47416689>1. No, I haven't. What is that?
>>47416689>1. No, I haven't. What is that?I honestly haven't, I didn't keep up with naruto past the chunin exams in the manga
>>47416689>1. No, I haven't. What is that?Welp, time to stop lurking and time to start voting.
>>47416726Imagine the society in Hot Fuzz and that's pretty close
>>47416689>1. I highly doubt we'd know about ROOT.
>>47416751I could see Danzo having said something small about it once or twice
>>47416743Funny. But yeah apply ninjas and horrific warmongering, child stealing and murder and that's not too far off.>1. No, I haven't. What is that?
>>47416689>2. The name is familiar... although I cannot really place it.We are a smart girl with her ear to the ground
"What's ROOT, Onii-chan?"Writing.
>>47416743>>47416765That's... terrifying... Bet they have all sorts of "interesting" jutsu though.
>>47416930all I've seen from those losers is drawings become living constructs no jutsu from a pale kid that liked to talk about dicks
>>47416930We don't see much of the actual organization itself. Just it's effects on some key characters
>>47416967>>47416951so... free reign to come up with whatever crazy vaguely sinister jutsu wargle wants?
>>47416726To give a little more context than >>47416765 my amusement, ROOT is kinda like AnBu is to the Shinobi Corps.Where AnBu deal with the most sensitive of intel, unsavoury missions and spec ops ROOT is all of the black ops. Things that could never see the light of day lest they ruin the Leaf's image forever.Literally the roots down in the dark, never seen, but always keeping the rest of the tree up.It was set up by Ol Danzo and Hiruzen back when he was still new to his position and needed an extra off the books force to do dirty work. In canon he much later declared them disbanded but Danzo he basically lost it by that point and kept going anyway.He used some pretty extreme methods, read: raising a pair of children then forcing them to fight to the death/placing seals on his agents to prevent them from speaking, to ensure absolute loyalty and unthinking obedience.He used said agents to infiltrate all sorts of places and kill lots of people to further his own goals, read: ensure Konoha's military dominance.In essence in his own mind the difference between himself and his goals and those of the village got blurred along the way.Who knows how much of that holds true here though? Wargle Lots of things are different in our timeline.
>>47416951Wanna know another ROOT agent?Kabuto
>>47417053Like how Nori probably got Yang Kurama, while Naruto probably got Yin.
>>47417053Ah... that's interesting then, a lot of potential there if were careful...
>>47417068Hey, Kabuto is greatPersonal best boy
>>47417110Stomach Snake disagrees
>>47417110Kabuto was probably my least liked character in the entire series. He's a little creepy, honestly. They wrote him really well. In the anime, anyway, haven't gotten that far in the manga.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nhm9BH3Kd9A“No, I can’t say I have. What’s ROOT?”“ROOT was a group of elite shinobi who served the greater whole of Konoha. Officially, it was part of ANBU, kept secret from the outside world. Those unseen, who would protect the great tree of Konoha from the depths of the earth itself.” he explains.No surprise you hadn’t heard of it, then.“Were you part of this group, Danzo?” He certainly knew enough about it.“I was its leader.” he answers, and lets the silence hold.“What happened, then?” you cannot help but question it. You’d always wondered what exactly Danzo used to do.“Enemies of the Leaf poisoned the ear of our Lord Fourth. He deemed ROOT without purpose, after the end of the war, and on some trumped up accusations, ordered it dismantled. Broken apart, integrated into ANBU as a whole. I retired shortly after. Your father was a friend, and with his growing fortune, he offered me a place to stay, and honorable retirement. Away from those who no longer valued what I had to offer.” he continues, with just a hint of sadness in his voice.“So we are going to….?” you inquire, although you think you know the answer.“The old ROOT facility, yes. Your father has kept it clean and running for me, as a favor.”This is a lot to ponder. Seems that the political situation within Konoha wasn’t as stable as it appeared.You…1. Ask Danzo about ROOT (What?)2. Stay silent, and let him reveal what he wishes.3. Try to change the topic.
>>47417235>1. Ask Danzo about ROOT (What?)what were those trumped up charges?
>>47417131>>47417187>tfw no one likes your husbando
>>47417235>1. Ask Danzo about ROOT (What?)How did you meet my Dad? Was it for something for ROOT?
>>47417235>2. Stay silent, and let him reveal what he wishes.
>>47417187He always struck me as a true remorseless sociopath. no respect for the dead. Sees everything from a pure utilitarian lens, that all people are merely a means to an end. That end always being power, but more importantly knowledge. Very creepy, but oddly interesting.
>>47417235>1. Ask Danzo about ROOT (What?)"Enemies of the Leaf? Like, other villages?"
>>47417235> Let him reveal what he wishes.Top secret ROOT techniques when
>>47417235>2. Stay silent, and let him reveal what he wishes.This is a big part of Danzo's life's work. Gotta let him go at his own pace and get comfortable before we push for some more answers. Still once he's ready, we gotta try and get EVERYTHING. heheheheheh>>47417187A little? Hue.Kabuto is a tragic figure no doubt, but not a sympathetic one.>>47417280Indeed. Poor bastard is beyond broken in the head.
>>47417235That theme and Sai's theme are pretty goodIf we get to keep hearing those if we join ROOT then I don't see why anyone would be opposed at all
>>47417372Yeah ROOT fucked him up good.
Letting Danzo ramble.Writing.
>>47417372Kabuto. Interesting fellow. [Spoiler]Though it was kinda dumb how they made him "good" in the end of the series[/spoiler]
>>47417372I want to save Kabuto and protect his broken smile
>>47417424Frick. My bad guys.
>>47417444ctrl+s is your friend
>>47417424Gotta have that in lower case there.But yes as much as I love the world and some of the characters nothing fucked things up for than Kishimoto himself. Too busy trying to shonen it up and writing himself into corners and plot holes to actually flesh out the world. Ah well, s'what fan projects like this are for, right?
>>47417425>>47417394Kabuto's is bretty good toohttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Ols0_CZ0NUhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=enD0LhHJ8Gw
>>47417482for ugh.MORE THANblurgh.Off to work now, make sure to OHOHOH it up bois
"My story begins in nineteen-dickety-two. We had to say dickety because the Raikage had stolen our word twenty. I chased that rascal to get it back, but gave up after dickety-six miles. What are you cackling at, Tsuki? Too much blueberry muffins, that's your problem! Now, I'd like to digress from my prepared remarks to discuss how I invented the terlet..."
>>47417280>Sees everything from a pure utilitarian lens, that all people are merely a means to an endwith his ninja info cards.
>>47417482Ah, gotcha. thanks, m8. New guy here.I love the world of Naruto a ton, no doubt. But near the end it got a little too DBZ. Kinda cool, but it just got to be too much for me. Kabuto's about face was one of the things that just didn't make darn sense.Though, I am excited for the Boruto manga, so we'll see how the world expands.
>>47417532>excited for the Boruto mangaI'm sorry, anon
>>47417532>Was basically mindraped into being a good guy by Itachi>"Why is he a good guy now?"
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wT3FK898yMk“Probably a lot for you to take in, Tsuki-dono. I would understand if you’re confused.”Confused isn’t what you’d call it.“Not confused Danzo, just curious. Please, go on.”You can see him turn his head towards you, just slightly. He chuckles.“Your father was always interested, too.”You quirk an eyebrow at this, but don’t say anything further.“I’ll be the first to admit we did some things that others may have found… unscrupulous. But it was war. We did what we needed to do to protect the Leaf. To protect men and women like your parents. I am proud of what we were able to accomplish, and those we were able to save.”“But I’m rambling like an old man. ROOT is no more. However…”As he says this, the elevator stops with a jolt. He lifts the shutter again, and the two of you continue to walk. A plain iron door at the end of the hallway comes into view. Using the same key, Danzo unlocks the door, and pulls it open.Inside is a large facility, crisscrossed with walkways on it’s second level, where you now stand. Danzo hits a button on the wall nearby, and lights above start to flicker to life. You can see a great many things- training equipment, sparring areas, libraries, and so on. You could train an army in here. “The knowledge we learned, and the skills we perfected, all in the name of Konoha, should not die over simple political squabbling. I would let the next generation decide. Your generation, Tsuki-dono.”1. Suprised. This is far larger than what you had envisioned.2. Skeptical. How much is this costing your father?3. Excited. You are eager for what Danzo wishes to teach you.

>>47417713>3. Excited. You are eager for what Danzo wishes to teach you.We're totally going to have an arc where our clan/family betrays the village and we go missing-nin.
Please oh please can we become a ROOT nin, it's something we have not done before in any other quest. Princess of Root
"Can we go to Tsuki's house?! She has the best clubhouse!"
>>47417791OH GOD!WE'RE GONNA BE THIS TEAM'S SASUKE!
I wonder what kind of Ninja we are going to become? Ninja Batman? Wealth, secretly trained by an underground Ninja group, bat/Root cave.I actually want to make Danzo proud
>>47417808You bastard I damn near woke everyone up laughing at that!
MIXTURE OF EMOTIONSBut pretty positive.Writing.
>>47417832I kinda want his summoning scroll, that thing's OP if he teaches us his vacuum jutsu to go with it.
Danzo gonna give us the chakra paper test? I wonder if we will become a more Yin/Yang nin instead... I'm oddly hoping for Water release, it's clean, elegant yet also can come crushing down upon our foes.
>>47417713>3. Excited. You are eager for what Danzo wishes to teach you.WHAT COULD GO WRONG?
>>47417862Maybe we could go with something really abstract/out there? like an Octopus or a bird or something instead of a mammal?
>>47417933Combo Genjutsu with an Octopus summon, trantacles coming out the darkness, alien like eyes staring from the black, if we go full root it'd look awesome. Cuthulesque based Jutsu, we'll fuck their minds until they end their own lives.

“This is….. massive. All of this is built into the mountain?” you say, exasperated. Massive doesn’t cover it. He has to be selling himself short- this nothing short of a military installation. ROOT being part of ANBU…. You think back to what Danzo said in the elevator. ANBU were the best, the literal cream of the shinobi crop. To think they had an even more selective internal organization, and that you now have access to that organization's information and techniques…? Mentally, you’re drooling. Not physically, though. Tact, Tsuki. Don’t let him see how awed we are by this…..“Built under it, initially.” Danzo answers, breaking you out of your own mind. “As we expanded, we built tunnels leading many places. Most of them have been sealed, although that blasted Uchiha never found all of them.” He seems rather pleased with himself. “The elevator is a newer construct. Built when the manor was, at my request. Not that your father required much convincing. There is no safer place in Konoha, than right here. The very heart of our precious village.”“If you’d like, when I deem you ready, I can make you a copy of the key. However…” Danzo’s voice becomes more stern, certainly more than you ever remember. “Until that time, you are not to come here without me. While I believe you have unlimited potential, even those with that talent must be tempered. Konoha has learned this the hard way many times.”You…1. Agree without questions.2. Agree, but ask about something. (What?)3. Refuse
>>47418039Sure, why not. What could possibly be in the secret underground research base that could hurt us?
>>47418039>1. Agree without questions.
>>47418039>2. Agree, but ask about something. (What?)When did you actually meet my Father? Was he married to mother then?
>>47418039>2. Agree, but ask about something. (What?)When can I show you I'm ready, Lord Danzo?
>>47418039>1. Agree without questions.fair enough. his club house his rules
>>47418014yes, and it'll wield a massive wooden mochi hammer! (since the legend is that the rabbits are pounding mochi on the moon iirc)
>>47418039>2. Agree, but ask about something. (What?)"Was Orochimaru a part of ROOT?" It matches up with what he's told us so far.
>>47418070killer rabbit no jutsu
>>47418039>1. Agree without questions.At least until we have a Team 7 slumber party and get into shenanigans running from whatever eldritch horror he's got stashed down here.
>>474180391. Agree without questions.
>>47418039>1. Agree without questions.The best damn clubhouse.
>>47418039>1. Agree without questions.Oh boyhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vK4gv11PTI8
>>47418066As an addition would it be possible to bring my teammates here at all?
>>47418014I actually think this'd fit pretty well with out "moon" thematic. Plus, imagine going Ohohoho~! with a bunny in her lap. Ojou to the max.
>>47418039>1. Agree without questionsOperation clubhouse is go!
>>47418039>1. Agree without questions.Good ninja follow orders
Is Naruto Kai better than the show?
>>47418110I dont see it happening any time soon
>>47418118But how do they breathe? If we reverse summoned ourselves there, how would we breathe?
>>47418039>1. Agree without questions.Good child soldiers don't question orders
>>47418154They aren't on the moon.That real estate is taken.
Good little Tsuki, never question uncle DanzoWriting.
>>47418040I would like Bats or Cthulu as a summon. That'd be awesome.
>>47418176Why would we? He's super trustworthy, after all.
>>47418154Youy'll have to ask their boss summon
>>47418193How about squids? Japs love squid ink on their food
>>47418176it's gonna hurt when he stabs us in the backbut it'll be a good pain
>>47418212Holy fuck I've never realized how fucking ninja Octopus, squid and cuttlefish are.
>>47418247mimicry, camouflage (using both environment and colorization), expert hiding, lock opening, ink clouds, those fuckers are the ninjest
He wouldn’t say that without a reason…. And really, who knows what’s down here.“Of course. I assume there will be a test?” you answer, dutifully. “You know me well, Tsuki-dono. Once you have become a chunin, we can talk more about the secrets of this place, and I will test you.” he says, his slight smile returning. “Until that time, we shall come here together when you wish to utilize the knowledge here. This way I can not only teach you, but can temper you. Help form you into the shinobi you were destined to become.”You aren’t really sure about that last part. He’s probably just flattering you.“Come. Follow me down to the main level. Before we begin, we need to know certain things about your natural abilities. For one, knowing the nature of one’s chakra is important. I assume you already know of that which I speak?”1. Yes, I know what chakra natures are. Please continue.2. A refresher would be nice.
>>47418247I'm concerned about us being tied to water if we do that.....Especially if we dont have water release.
>>47418247Well, yeah with their whole body color/texture reactive camoflauge thing and the fact that they tend to be stealth predators... oh god a humboldt squid as a summon, those things are vicious...
>>47418277>1. Yes, I know what chakra natures are. Please continue.awwwwww shit.
>>47418277>1. Yes, I know what chakra natures are. Please continue.do we roll or vote for it?
>>47418277>1. Yes, I know what chakra natures are. Please continue.Always skip the tutorial
>>47418285Summons can do their own jutsu, so they could conceivably make water when they arrive.
>>47418277>1. Yes, I know what chakra natures are. Please continue.
>>474182771. Yes, I know what chakra natures are. Please continue.
>>474182771. Yes, I know what chakra natures are. Please continue.You have taught me much Danzo
>>47418277>>1. Yes, I know what chakra natures are. Please continue.
>>47418277>1. Yes, I know what chakra natures are. Please continue.this I remember at least.
>>47418304Come get some calamari now, bitches.
>>47418319don't say that to the Cloud Village fuckers, they'll Sunlight Spear your ass from here to I dunnopoint is, it'll hurtpokemon types apply to certain degrees
>>47418267don't forget excellent eyesight and use of poisons. Blue ringed octopus and pfeffers flamboyant cuttlefish.>>47418285Octopus can move out of water. An Octopus was kept in the local science lab, the aquatic biology department can't recall the proper name. The scientists noticed fish going missing in the other tanks so they set up cctv. The octopus was opening the lid of its tank, slithering out crossing the floor and noming on them when no one was there.
So, place your bets, if we're assigned an elemental nature, what would it be?I'm thinking wind, water, or lightning are all possible types with ice release as a possible kekkai gekkai
>>47418340Ahhh love that miracle, but yeah we'd have a definite elemental weakness unless... since were using a bow... could we whip up a jutsu that turns an arrow into a lightning rod, pulling lighting chakra attacks away from stuff?
>>47418352>using bluering octopi to poison the tips of our arrowsmy fucking dick is SO HARD, we need it!
>>47418352http://zapatopi.net/treeoctopus/ Oh i know all about that.
>>47418340Lightning isn't even Water's superior element, that's Earth
>>47418362I'm thinking fire.Character is a bit of a smug ice princess, so it'd be funny if her element was an aggressive one.
>>47418362An Ohohojou would be good at handling frictionSo I think Fire or LightningKekkei genkai are impossible without having the actual blood of that clan
>>47418384That little bit is the most most frustrating part of chakra naturesIt should go Air<Fire<Water<Lightning<Earth<Air
>>47418362I say water. Favorite element.
>>47418401Could just be a mutantBut I'm not counting on it
>>47418401kekkai genkai are mixed releases right? what do you get with fire and lightning, don't think there's a blood line tied to that one yet?
>>47418411Kishi just followed the ancient Chinese standard, Pokemon doing it another way is what fucked up your thinking, and now you can't look past it
>>47418416This was WAY better than Chidori or Rasenganhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=84kt2R11xCk
>>47418401Our mother was a ninja not from the leaf, she might of had a kekkai genkai.Lightning +fire and lightning+air are the only unknown kekkai genki (although their may be other variations.
“Yes, the academy covered the five elemental natures of chakra. Fire, Water, Wind, Earth, and Lightning.” you answer.“Good to know the academy still covers the basics. The Second would be rolling in his grave if his precious academy had come to naught. Although… he might still be doing that regardless.” he laughs at his own joke. You don’t get it.The two of you walk to the center of the main sparring arena, and Danzo shuffles over to one side. Eventually, he produces two pieces of chakra paper from a nearby bookshelf.He hands one to you, and then holds his up.“You already have good chakra control, so I’m not particularly concerned about this part.” he starts, holding the paper between you. “Simply channel your chakra into this paper, and it will react a certain way, depending on the type you have. Easy enough. I’ll demonstrate.”You sense the slightest surge of chakra- and suddenly, the paper in Danzo’s hand has burst into flames. It very quickly crumbles to dust.The effects are varied, although I’ll be able to tell you what they mean.You look at the paper in your hand, and begin to concentrate…..
>>47418455just roll for it
>>47418427https://youtu.be/gxe6OkGLNyE?t=3m44s I heard a fan theory that supposedly Sasuke shapes his lightning into various things and then coats those things with Amaterasu
>>47418455>WaterPure and swift like us.
>>47418437It just doesn't make sense because lightning should always beat water
>>47418455roll for it, more fun and random, maybe roll a D100 and if we get 90-100 we get a kekki genkaithen just roll X D6
>>47418455Roll for it, please.
>>47418445lightning and wind are the combination of the Leaf Ninja quest that is concluding right now. It is called impact release, and it is kinda baller.
Rolled 3, 6, 5, 3, 3 = 20 (5d6)trolling
>>47418445Anon, that chart sucks.Unfortunately your release was predetermined- was part of what was chosen during character select. please no bully
>>47418498the only other unknown Kekki Genkai is Fire/Lightning. That would be some brutal shit.
>>47418469The way they interact may make it seem like that, but think of it this wayIf you use lightning on a pool of water that your enemy made, yeah, you'll shock himBut if your enemy shoots water at you and you hit that with lightning, now you're just going to get hit with the electrically charged waterSo it isn't that one actually defeats the other, even though they interact
>>47418498I know. But as it is non cannon I didn't mention it.>>47418505>Anon, that chart sucks.agreed yours is better.>Unfortunately your release was predetermined- was part of what was chosen during character select.Fine by me.
>>47418505So what did we get!?
>>47418505Isn't Lightning x Wind like Swift release or something?
>>47418505>Unfortunately your release was predetermined- was part of what was chosen during character select.I'm good with that.
>>47418505Wouldn't wind + lightning be thunder?
>>47418541Swift Release is non-canon. There is no canonical Lightning/Wind Kekkei Genkai release.
Wargle is having some tech issues. Post is coming shortly. Get your panties twisted to your own personal comfort.
>>47418536At least the "inferior" one uses the superior language.
>>47418551But I'm not wearing my panties!
>>47418594Educated guess. Guessed wrong.
You look at the paper in your hand, and begin to concentrate…..The paper quickly crumples into a small ball. The ball then erupts into flame. Bright blue flame.You look up at Danzo- and his grin the widest you’ve ever seen it.“Lightning and Fire. Very, very good.”Sorry about that folks, 4chan shit the bed for a moment. More Inc.
>>47418618Okay that doesn't bode well for our enemies now does it? He is fucking happy as hell!
>>47418618That's fairly hype. Neato.
>>47418618>The ball then erupts into flame. Bright blue flame.>Lightning and FireShinobi Azula? But with some sort of heart and not a cold black void.
>>47418618>Fire and LightningNew Kekkai Genkai boyz
>>47418618Ah, man. Wanted water. Oh, well.
>>47418618> Lightning and FireLocking down 'Chaos Release' as its name!
>>47418638we can still learn water release.>>47418640more like plasma.
>>47418618You just wanted to finish the chart, didn't you
>>47418644Plasma is part of lightning you dummy
>>47418618Lightning and fire>Sauce intensifies
>>47418652Can you blame him?
4chan is still kinda fucking up for me
>>47418644Laser release is already a thing. Water and lightning.>>47418640Pls no edge
How about Spark Release? A simple name for such a great power, much like a humble spark can cause great calamity.
>>47418665Of course not, I did the same thing
>>47418672I can deal with that. But it really depends on what it actually does.
>>47418652The chart is complete. The prophecy fulfilled. A new release has come, and it is about to tear some unsuspecting shinobi a new one.
>>47418682It looks pretty. That's it.
>>47418652Maybe.If they hadn't chosen this particular start though, they wouldn't have ever got it, and our lives would be totally unfulfilled.Inc.
testI'm tired of having exit the thread to see updates
>>47418655I know. >>47418667That's storm release.I was thinking more sun than lightning.
Pure heat maybe?
>>47418746Flare Release? Like a solar flare.
The flame continues to burn- and it actually starts to hurt!“..ow!” You wince as you recoil, and drop the flaming ball to the floor.Quickly, Danzo steps on it, putting it out with a crunch.“Seems that combination of your natures is… rather volatile. It would need to need to be producing some extreme heat to be burning hot enough to harm the user- normally this is impossible for one’s own chakra.I would be very careful with that, for the time being. We can work on developing this talent of yours, and many others. I suspect that is only the tiniest representation of what it is you can really do with this power.”“Now, shall we begin? I have excercises in mind to help strengthen your control, but those can come later. A smart young woman like yourself surely has something she’s wanted to learn. We can start with that, if you’d like.”1. Well, there is this one jutsu…. (Which One?)2. I want you to pick!3. I would rather work on my new ability.
>>47418667> pls no edgeI think 'Chaotic' is a pretty apt description for the combination of the two most physically damaging Elemental Releases
>>47418779>1. Well, there is this one jutsu…. (Which One?)Body Flicker!
>>47418775That's not like lightning, is it?
>>47418779>2. I want you to pick!anons shouldn't get blank checks, at least this early anyway
>>47418779>2. I want you to pick!
>>474187792. I want you to pick!
>>47418779Well, a Solar Release would only hurt the Moon Princess.Or it could be Nuclear Release and we're giving ourself cancer.3. I would rather work on my new ability.
>>47418782Edge Release. It's a double edged sword.
>>47418779>4.raise our taijutsu. Fuck Iruka he passed Lee with no complaints and that's all he's good at. Not that I don't like Lee
>>47418779>2. I want you to pick!Mystery Box, Lock In
>>47418779>3. I would rather work on my new ability.Any idiot can do a jutsu (sorry Lee) but this is unique to us!
>>47418788It's like the sun.>>474187792. I want you to pick!
>>47418779>2. I want you to pick!I submit myself to your teaching Lord Danzo, if I have both Fire and Lightning why not a basic technique of each
>>47418807While I totally agree, I don't think that's an option unless #2 leads to that.I hope so, but probably not.
>>47418779>2. I want you to pick!Maybe something offensive so we can put our nin/gen scores to use?
>>47418827That has much to do with lightning and little to do with fire.
A primer-The one he picks is going to be very utilitarian, and will also double as way to train you. It's probably not going to be as exciting as you all think.On the flip-side, obviously there are jutsu you will be entirely unable to perform at this point in your shinobi career, and he knows this.
>>47418827actually as plasma is superheated, ionized gas, i'd be more like Air/Lightning release
>>47418779>>1. Well, there is this one jutsu…. (Which One?)>Body Flicker!Body flicker helps keep away those crude melee fighters while we dispatch them with our superior ninjutsu.
>>47418848remember that the chakra natures are also symbolic as well. Water + wind makes ice. Part of that might be cooling, but it is also a matter of it's nature as the cutting release.
As for thoughts on release namesInitially it was plasma release. I've also entertained some of the others mentioned. Stellar, Solar, Nuclear(didn't like), etc. I liked plasma because you are literally superheating the ionized gases with you own chakra- well beyond what the "vibration" based lightning chakra can do in canon. but that's just me
>>47418884ExtrapolatingAnd besides, lightning is one very singular aspect of what plasma is and can be. But, will of anon trumps all. I'll hold a vote in the future, sometime.
>>47418884What about spark? Very fitting with fire and lightning.
>>47418779>1. Well, there is this one jutsu…. (Which One?)Phoenix Flower Jutsu. We'll be able to control the flames and may even create a variant of it with plasma release.
>>47418896Plasma or just plain ol' "Heat" is fine
>>47418915Heat is kind of taken by Scorch Release.
>No love for Spark ReleaseI should just give up, shouldn't I?
>>47418896Just stick with plasma, a vote is just begging for way too edgy a name
Ok, new vote to make things easier/more clear.1. You choose (Offensive)2. You choose (Defensive, Body Flicker leading)3. He chooses (to make things easier, I'll just tell you- it's the shadow clone)
>>47418931It's a good name, but I fear the princess would want the more exotic one.
>>47418940>3. He chooses (to make things easier, I'll just tell you- it's the shadow clone)
Incandescent release? (Oh if only I could be so grossly incandescent!)
>>47418940If we learn Shadow Clones, can we do Jounin training? Use a clone to read while we train kind of thing?
>>47418940>3. He chooses (to make things easier, I'll just tell you- it's the shadow clone)Even if we can only make one its worth it
>>47418940>3. He chooses (to make things easier, I'll just tell you- it's the shadow clone)our arrows will blot out the sun1 shadow clone for every genjutsu clone, to make our enemies paranoid
>>47418940>2. You choose (Defensive, Body Flicker leading)Were a squishy mage, playing keep away is important
>>474189402. You choose (Defensive, Body Flicker leading)Gotta play keep-away with those pesky melee ninjas.
>>47418973Actually nvm, shadow clone achieves the same thing with more utility changing to 3.
>>47418963In theory yes, although this is insanely taxing on the user.At Tsuki's current level, she'd only be able to make a single shadow clone. But because she CAN make it, it also serves as a great training tool.
>>47418940>3. He chooses (to make things easier, I'll just tell you- it's the shadow clone)Even one shadow clone is too op to pass upPlus, we have a defense with body replacement technique
>>47418940>3. He chooses (to make things easier, I'll just tell you- it's the shadow clone)shadow clone training bullshit?shadow clone training bullshit!
>>47418940>1. You choose (Offensive)Phoenix Flower Jutsu.
It still bugs me that Naruto never noticed or that nobody told him about the clones' memories until post-timeskip
>>47418940>2. You choose (Defensive, Body Flicker leading)
>>47419026I always thought that was more because his clones typically lasted ~2 seconds before being instagibbed by whoever he was fighting
>>47419026The fact that he basically learned nothing on that trip might be just as bad
>>47418940>3. He chooses (to make things easier, I'll just tell you- it's the shadow clone)Oh boy, cant wait to abuse this!
>>47418998> use a Shadow Clone to rapidly train chakra pools to create more Shadow Clones> quickly create a loop of the Shadow Clones constantly training themselves to create more Shadow ClonesI back it
>>47419041The trip was mostly spent with trying to get the ninetails under control. Jiraya just sucked at that.
Figured the Shadow clones would win out in the end. Writing.(For those wanting other jutsu, fear not. This certainly isn't the last time you can learn jutsu.)(Also, for those fearing abuse- this warning comes now. Your character is not a Junchuriki or a Secret Uzumaki. Abuse of the Shadow Clone can and will kill you. As much as I love you all, I'll stick to my guns on this)
>>47419062It would have been so much smarter to get him to as high as possible without the ninetails so he would be that much better with it
>>47419062> Jiraiya just sucked at thatThat's a funny way of saying "Hey we're in a crowded hotel in the middle of a city. Let's loosen that seal that's holding a biological engine of rage and chaos a tad, and let's see what happens!"
>>47419092combined with the drinking and whoring? Yeah. He probably shoulda left the training to the toads.... or literally any adult in the whole village.
>>47419063Is it abuse if we just constantly have one out doing shit until we get tired, then dispel it until we rest up again? Sounds like perfect training to me, desu
>>47419063I only wanted like 2 shadow clones, One can study, one can jutsu and the real on gets fitter
>>47419130yeah a guide on the healthy use of shadow clones for self improvement would be appreciated
“I’ve come this far under your tutelage, Danzo. No reason to stop now.” you answer.“Very well, I had a specific Jutsu in mind. The Shadow Clone jutsu.” A forbidden jutsu, straight away? “I know what you must be thinking- but the Shadow Clone is commonly used by most high level jonin. While abuse of the technique can be extremely hazardous to one’s health, I do believe you are skilled enough to make a single shadow clone. This technique is very useful, for both offense, defense, and training yourself in the long term. This is also something you can do on your own to practice, when we aren’t together.”“However, never try to make more clones than you feel are necessary. The technique splits your chakra even amongst the clones you create. Spread your chakra too thin, and it could be your life.”Spooky. Still, it’s an insanely useful skill.“Very well, teach me the Shadow Clone Jutsu.”Danzo begins to walk you through the process….--------------------------------------------------------------------
Here’s where we’re gonna stop for the night, I’m exhausted. We’ll kick it up again tomorrow, earlier because I’m off, and stuff. As usual, I’ll be kicking around for a while as I archive the thread, and can answer questions. No in depth writing though, as I’m about to fall over.Twitter is @WargleQM for those you who are about those sort of things!
>>47419173Thanks for running
> "So Danzo, how do I do this secret Jounin-level technique?"> "Mould a shitton of chakra and make three hand seals."> "...Three?"> "Correct"> "But...a Fire Release: Grand Fireball Jutsu has five!"> "I'm not training no stinking Uchiha scum, am I? Three seals!"
>>47419173Thanks for the run!
>>47419181Unfortunately Kishimoto never showed in-dpeth the specifics, and even Naruto was able to pick up on it in an afternoon.Only downside is if you fuck it up, you die!:D
>>47419181"Keep complaining and i will have you cut it down to one."
>>47419218How many clones can Tsuki make atm?willing to share potential endgame figure?
>>47419173Minato actually shut down ROOT for real this time, huh. Unless Danzo's showing us the big empty rooms and keeping us out of the small ones with the child soldiers and test subjects?
>>47419218Kishimoto never showed the theory behind learning any jutsu at all. Except, perhaps, the Rasengan.Otherwise, it's basically "Mould chakra inside you. Make some hand seals. Flail wildly until magic happens."All the training of a new jutsu is done on the inside, regulating chakra control and figuring out mixes of elements.>>47419219> "Don't let me hear you complaining about three hand seals, missy!"> "Back in MY day, we didn't have no fancy-pants 'Tiger' or 'Dragon' seals!"> "We had four seals TOTAL, and we were HAPPY dagnabbit!"> "I remember when my sensei pulled off a Water Dragon Jutsu by repeating the Snake seal 54 times in a row!"> "It made things easier to remember, lemme tell ya!"> "Grand Fireball Jutsu? Easy! Bird, Bird, Bird, Bird, Bird, done!"I want Danzo to get like Grandpa Simpson every now and then, going off on tangents about the old days.
>>47419250Hiruzen after coming back as hokage is seriously hilariously incompetent And I like Hiruzen.Minato definitely had help, as Danzo mentioned.
>>47419250a. Tsuki hasn't been indoctrinated enough to be inducted b. She is not supposed to be a regular member of ROOTc. There is no ROOT anymore and Danzo is using Tsuki to make sure his ideals and beliefs are passed down to future generations.
>>47419242Right now? 1.There will definitely be a hard cap, and isn't going to be very high. Most likely between 5 -10 at endgame. Probably closer to 5.
>>47419265I am not saying i love this idea.... I do
>>47419265With some jutsu you can at least put some theory into it without too crazy of speculation- but for things like the clone jutsu, its basically just ninja magic because reasons
>>47419279I doubt the anons here are actually willing to go through with itThey'll pump and dump Lord Danzo
So Shadow Clone training all day with Danzo and real us doing other shit?
>>47419338I'll probably toss together a "Shadow Clones for Dummies" in the pastebin that explains what can and cannot be done with them
>>47419338I think we'll have to get physical gain ourself, shadowclones maybe for muscle memory or learning other stuff in general
>>47419358>My own clone! Now neither one of us will be virgins!
>>47419371I'm honestly surprised at the birth rate in the ninja world, considering most people would be able to make a clone, and then transform that clone into anyone you want.> we never see Naruto act out his Sakura harem fantasyPerhaps that's for the better...
>>47419466you would retrain memories you fucking yourself
>>47419591I've often wondered if there's a way to tune it out. I'd assume there would be - it'd just be mental training.
>>47419627>Someone tries to interrogate that Naruto's mind>They almost immediately pull their hand back as if they had touched an oven>Shaking and breathing in and out deeply while shaking their head while despair floods through them
>>47417713> the literal cream of the shinobi crop.Civilian mindset detected.Oh well, we're young yet.>>47418247Don't forget confusing their enemies into lethal vulnerability.>>47418411I've always felt that's understating the effects of chakra. It is an explanation for primary school aged kids. More of a don't expect a jutsu of type X to overpower a jutsu of type Y. The basics for beginners.Also don't forget that chakra isn't a physical thing and that jutsu are partly chakra.Interactions as I see it in mah brain, when applied with equal strength:Fire consumes air, is rebuffed by earth, snuffed by water and passes through/around lightning.Air is rebuffed by earth, pushes against or slices through water and diffuses lightningEarth holds firm against water and is broken down by lightningWater diffuses lightning but doesn't halt the flow much.The relative strength of the techniques, users and method of application change all that.>>47418427kekkai genkai litterally means bloodline limit, or to translate the meaning, "Techniques limited to a bloodline."The most common are the combo elemental releases like Water+Air>Ice and Earth+Fire>Lava, but it's a far broader term than that. Things like the Kaguya's Bone techniques, the Kurama's reality bending split personalities, Suna's Magnetic techniques and even the Sharingan are all Kekkai Genkai.
>>47419810>>47419157Ya know I always hated that explanation. It's just illogical. And Naruto being able to spam tens/hundreds/thousands because he's just got lots of chakra is just as dumb. If he makes 100 clones he'd still end up with 1% of his own chakra. Also it's contradicted by the chakra control explanation that Ebisu gave comparing Naruto to Sakura and Sasuke.But fannon explanation I ever heard was that making 1 clone with the base technique was as costly as a normal A Rank combat jutsu. And for a non-jinchuuriki that's still a dubious prospect compared to say a giant explosion or a rasengan/chidori or a giant dragon bullet.That's for the basic version, then the Multi version makes less durable clones and starts at a cost comparable to most B rank combat techniques but then increase exponentially for each extra clone you're making.Much less self contradictory and still fits with the canon usage.>>47419270True facts. Sad old man needs to retire.>>47419671hehehehehe
>>47419810Kaguya's All-Killing Ash Bones, and indeed, the majority of her techniques, are Kekkei Mora, or Bloodline Encompassing. It's more to show off her unique and literal god-tier techniques. Mu and Oohnoki's Dust Release are Kekkei Tota, or Bloodline Selection.Kurama's split wasn't a Kekkei Genkai at all. If you're talking about the two halves, that was simply Minato using the Death Reaper Seal on half of Kurama.It's also odd, because some Kekkei Genkai can be taught. Oohnoki is currently no relation to Mu, and yet learned Dust Release. Kurotsuchi has Lava Release, but is a completely different Lava Release to Mei Terumi, and they're completely unrelated. The Third Kazekage was of no relation to Rasa, the Fourth, and Rasa still managed to bend his prodigious talents towards Magnet Release and learned it. There was also a Lightning ninja unrelated to Gaara or Rasa who still learned Magnet Release.Long story short, it's all over the fucking place.
>>47419861Wasn't talking about bun bun, was referring to her descendant. But yeah you're right about the other stuff. Hurrrrrr Kishi pls

It is a shame this runs at 4PM where i'm at, but i just want to say that i enjoy reading it, and it seems the anons playing got this handled pretty well anyways.
>>47421083I just wish /tg/ would quit trying to force stats-defined archetypes and husbandos/waifus. Every goddamn time.
I'm all for Plasma, anons.Plasma is a state of matter in and of itself. When something is so hot quantum fuckery happens. It's essentially the opposite of a Bose-Einstein Condensate.So yeah, Plasma is an apt name for our release.
>>47422182Fire, Lightning, and Storm are already forms of plasma, and Plasma just sounds so... clinical, I guess.I'll continue pondering it and make a suggestion in the next thread so I'm not just criticizing others.
>>47422238Except that Fire refers more to Thermal Energy, Lightning refers more to Electrical energy. I don't know shit about storm, but noone's going to confuse the two. Plasma refers to massive fucking huge amounts of energy, enough to go beyond "Vaporized" and right into its own state of matter because it's JUST THAT HOT.
