Shinobi Quest #13This 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/WiPdCqLH(Has been updated!)Previous Threads: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Shinobi%20QuestLast thread, Tsuki Norihime watched the last two matches of the chunin exams- Naruto vs. Sai, and Naruto vs. Neji. With Naruto coming out the overall victor, the crowd had erupted in thunderous applause….
You return to your seat, the adrenaline pumping through your veins leaving you, now that the battle had finished. You sigh.Danzo, meanwhile, finishes the last of his takoyaki. “A shame,” he says after a few moments. “The Hyuga boy almost had him. Unfortunately, he made a fatal mistake- never underestimate your foes. Just because you’ve won the battle doesn’t mean you’ve won the war. Learn from his mistake, Tsuki-dono.”“Yes, Danzo.” you respond, your voice somewhat distant.What that correct, though? Had Neji really underestimated Naruto?You…1. Agree with his review of the match- Neji was overconfident2. Disagree, Naruto tricked him somehow3. Disagree. Obviously it was rigged for Minato’s son to win.
>>47764568>1. Agree with his review of the match- Neji was overconfident
>>47764568>A Pride cometh before the fall
>>47764568>1. Agree with his review of the match- Neji was overconfidentBut I think more what let him down was that he was too focused on what lay behind the fight, not rooted firmly in the now, he looked to far beyond and missed his chance, such a shame
Yes, he had. Although they were teammates….“He was too focused on what what lay beyond his victory- too confident that his righteous cause would be enough for the world to validate him.” You finish.Danzo chuckles. “And what has this taught you, young mistress?” “That the world will never had us a victory- no matter why we fight. Trust in your abilities, but trust in your opponent's ability as well.” you answer in a flat tone.Danzo looks you in eyes, and holds the gaze.“Take this lesson to heart. Many have fallen to the hubris that their cause is truly righteous.”As many recent times have, this moment has become rather somber. As you sit in silence, you see many people beginning to file out of the arena- back to their daily lives; here, or elsewhere.“Do you wish to head home, Tsuki-dono?” Danzo asks, finally breaking the silence.You…1. Do. You’re exhausted, and you’ll probably resume missions tomorrow.2. No, you want to see someone… (Who?)
>>47764808>1. Do. You’re exhausted, and you’ll probably resume missions tomorrow.
>>47764808>1. Do. You’re exhausted, and you’ll probably resume missions tomorrow.Unless were gonna have a spa day with Danzo, we should just wrap it up.
>>477648081. Do. You’re exhausted, and you’ll probably resume missions tomorrow.
>>47764808>1. Do. You’re exhausted, and you’ll probably resume missions tomorrow.In the meantime think up a humbling speech for Neji to take to heart.
>>47764879I don't we should. Shouldn't we give Hinata every chance we can give her?
>>47764560>(Has been updated!)With what? I can't tell.
“Yes, Danzo. Today’s events have worn on me- let’s head home.” you sigh.He smiles, and offers you his hand…---------------------------------------------------------------------------You returned home to find a note from Itachi-sensei in the foyer…“Mission tomorrow. Village gate- 10 am.”--ItachiSimple, and to the point. That’s rather late in the day, though. Why would we be leaving so late?Oh well, no use worrying about it now.You head upstairs, towards your room. As you turn into the hallway, you can see the door to your father’s office open.You…1. Head to bed. Time for some beauty rest.2. Go talk with father.
>>47764968>2. Go talk with father.A nice chat about today's event.
>>47764968>2. Go talk with father.
>>47764968>1. Head to bed. Time for some beauty rest.plenty of rest
Rolled 16 (1d100)>>47764968>1. Head to bed. Time for some beauty rest.Try to see if we can form 2 shadow clones, just once. Just to see if we can. Then hit the sack.
>>47764986nah.>>47764968>2. Go talk with father.Lets see what happened with the Snow Nin and all that shit.
>>47764968>1. Head to bed. Time for some beauty rest.
>>47764968>2. Go talk with father.>>47764986We really need to fuck with our dad with shadow clones someday.>Have one clone leave the room while another enters from somewhere else.Show up with a clone next to us and act like it's not there.
>>47765047>We really need to fuck with our dad with shadow clones someday.Not our dad.Future Husbando, sure.But not Yoru.
>>47765047I'm >>47765064I had this weird mistake go on where I thought I read your post as "fuck with our dad", then "realized" I read "fuck our dad".Then after posting I realized it's actually "fuck with" and not "fuck".
You’re tired, but you want to see father- not that he’ll care all too much about the day’s proceedings, since you were not taking part. His single-mindedness can be endearing, if only slightly overbearing.You meander over to the door and give it a quick rapping with your fist, to signal your approach.“Come in, my dear.” Father says. He sounds perplexed- not an emotion common to him.You enter you find your father in his chair, cigarette hanging out of his mouth. He’s leaning over his desk, with books piled to either side of him. You can see his trash bin overflowing with crumpled pieces of parchment.He also isn’t wearing a shirt.You guess that if you had arrived an hour earlier, his door would have been shut. Father is rather…. intense, when it comes to serious research.“Come, my daughter, and see your father’s grand mechanical dream- the only one I’ve failed to make into glorious reality. Come see my biggest failure.” Your approach- and see a piece of artistry so precise and beautiful, so complex, that puts that boy Sai’s ink-fox demon to shame.A grand ship, affixed with great amounts of machinery and cannon. Propellers, turbines, and various other apparatus. There are notes everywhere- written every which way. Some look nearly as old as you, ink smudged and cracked with age. Others look relatively new, written over old notations. It occurs to you that you probably haven’t studied the family business as much as you should- you’re almost entirely lost.You….1. Ask about the blueprints2. Change the topic to the day’s events- might as well get his mind off of it.3. Ask about something else, such as Doto and the Snow Shinobi.>Write-In
>>47765269>2. Change the topic to the day’s events- might as well get his mind off of it.
>>47765269>1. Ask about the blueprints
>>47765269>1. Ask about the blueprints>Write inStudy the blueprints.
>>47765269Offer to help him figure out how to make the ship work
>>47765269>1. Ask about the blueprintsFor some reason I imagined the ship being powered by Rock Lee in a hamster wheel.
>>47765269>1. Ask about the blueprintsIs this the vessel lacking a power supply?>4. Take an intreast in the family businessSit and daddy's lap and let him vent some, lets learn a little about our inheritance. Maybe ask him about Ninja puppets, if we were to get into them could he provide some gadgets and building materials?
>>47765269>>47765328Voting for this
Time to learn the family business.Writing.
You walk up to his desk, take the cigarette out of his mouth, putting it out on the ashtray, and settle down unto his lap. It’s been awhile since you’ve sat like this- it’s nice.You point down at the blueprint. “Explain. My father is not so weak as to be defeated by a mere technical setback!You feel his laughter before you hear it- the rumbles rising within his chest.“My shinobi princess wants to know about her father’s designs after all? Maybe I can make a convert of you yet.” He quickly lifts the parchment, holding it a distance from your face, giving you a better view.“The Oni-class Aerial Warship. The first of it’s kind- a technical marvel that could command the skies. Bringing not only safe and efficient travel across our world, but bringing true and practical defense to people across it. It would be revolutionary- change the course of human development! Just imagine what we could accomplish!”“Of course, the thing is too heavy. Conventional engines, like those that power the naval warships I’ve designed previously, are far too cumbersome, and the weight of the fuel required to lunch the ship alone would be too much. I need the perfect power source- light, efficient, and packed with enough energy to keep the ship aloft to travel between ports.”“It is… probably impossible, I know.” he finally finishes.
>>47765894inb4 Stellar release is the needed fuel source
>>47765894Called it! Fusion power is go!
>>47765894can it fit in a summon scroll?
“As a boy, during the Second Shinobi World War, I saw those men and women- Sky shinobi they were called- with strange gliders and a great floating city. They sent balloons after them- balloons! It made no sense- they were eviscerated by the quick, maneuverable personal aircraft. The balloons were basically defenseless.” he explains.“Eventually they were repelled- their great city flying off to disappear into parts unknown. The Third said it was powered by some sort of demon- surely they misunderstood! They knew how to make such wondrous things! It was then I decided I would make them myself- improve them! I’d show everyone that this technology would liberate us! Machines simply perform the function presented to them- they are no more monsters than man himself.”“I’ve made a great many things since that day- all as fuel, as a continuation of my dream to finish this ship to sail the skies. But, I’ve never found a way for it to be free of this damn paper, to take flight into the great sky above. I’ve been able to accomplish so much- but every time I return to this, my original dream- I am further disheartened. Nobody has ever been able to help me, or to solve my issue- no second set of eyes, no rich and power benefactor.”“None of them.” he says, deflated.You…1. Encourage him2. Promise to find a way to power it3. Tell him you want to learn his trade4. Let him down easy.
>>47765964>2. Promise to find a way to power it>3. Tell him you want to learn his tradeRegardless of how many generations will fail! The Norihime clan will have a flying machine
>>47765964>1. Encourage him>2. Promise to find a way to power it>3. Tell him you want to learn his tradeThe Norihime WILL take to the skies Father.
>>47765964>2. Promise to find a way to power it>3. Tell him you want to learn his trade
>>47765964>2. Promise to find a way to power it>3. Tell him you want to learn his tradeWe're not going to discover nukes, right? That will ruin the Narutoverse
>>47765992>>47766000We will pluck the stars from the night sky!
>>47765964>their great city flying off to disappear into parts unknown.Bioshock: Infinite?
>1. Encourage him>2. Promise to find a way to power it>3. Tell him you want to learn his tradeHonestly why not either...A) Capture a tailed beast to chakra power itB) Run it on chakra from the crew
>>47766023Zerotails, I think. Some movie thing.
>>47766023I'm sure Wargle isn't that bad a writer
>>47766009The Tsuchigumo Clan's Fury Jutsu.
>>47765964Show him sun powers.
>>47766023Wait a minute, that meme...
>>47766043>implying bad writing.>>47766042Never heard of it.>>47766056I don't know what you're talking about.(I seriously don't)
>>47765964>>3. Tell him you want to learn his tradeHope this leads us towards some puppet things. We got production capacity, Danzo will get us a great teacher and Tsuki can personalize them crafting them. This is Tsuki's art, a beautiful symphony of metal, the uniformity and cleanness, the elegance in design and the endurance to last forever.This is our Art
>>47766066Infinite just wasn't that good
People chill with the puppets. When it comes time to train bring it up then otherwise please don't bring it up as it will turn others against it.
>>47766066Sorry, my cross board faggotry is showing.
>>47766130The world was beautiful, the concept sound. But i hoped it'd be more open world like and not as linear. Then it just went full "too deep for you".
2 & 3.Also, are you suggesting a power source?1. Yes (Tailed Beast)2. Yes (Stellar Chakra)3. Yes (Other)4. No
>>47766067Fuck puppets, christ they're dumb. >>47766150Too late mate, one look in the archives will have people mad, it pissed me off.
>>47766066>I don't know what you're talking about.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l_u18_BKczg
>>47766171>4For now say nothing, dont reveal Stellar yet.
>>47766171>3. Yes (Other)>>47766175I know. But I would like to try them out.
>>47766188Meant to add Rock Lee and Might Guy in two very large hamster wheels?
>>47766171>4. NoHush hush for now until we learn what he has tried so far.
>>47766171>4. NoMention our interest in puppets.Our dad is Narutony Stark, we can't not have him help us kick-ass puppets.
>>47766185>For now say nothing, dont reveal Stellar yet.I get not for the power source, but why are we keeping it a secret from Dad?
>>47766175>>47766188>not wanting to make a puppet version of pic related>>47766171Seconding>>47766217
>>47766200OOC you realize that all we need to do is tell Lee we doubt that he can do it, right? Simple tricks for simple minds.
>>47766217Backing this one>>47766231Angle based puppets are cool, but Stand based puppets are cooler
>>47766231>>47766258You know what's better than either? Summoning contracts and actually useful ninjutsu.
>>47766269>Let never do anything different, lets always play a jutsu focused ninja with summons
>>47766269But muh puppets...How else are we going to be super JoJo Stand girl?
>>47766281>Being different for the sake of being different.Wew lad.
>>47766281>let's do something retarded for the sake of being different! >>47766285Sorry, but no.
>>47766258What about Colossi based puppets?>>47766269Let's not be the same fucking character as Kon or Takeshi.
>>47766281you forgot the interest in genjutsu
>>47766281>Already a special snowflake with special unique release.>No must be more different, even at the cost of being ineffectual in combat!
>>47766269Summoning sounds cool desuSummoning Tsukuyomi no Jutsu when?
>>47766327We're already speced for puppetry and we can use our release to supplement it
So that's a no then.Gotcha.pls don't kill each other anons
>>47766320I concur, lets go something different, Puppets are a nice change of pace
Lets try and settle this now anons, and just because we focus on one thing doesn't mean we can't learn othershttp://www.strawpoll.me/10480632
so... two different brands of fun seem to be at odds here, min/maxer vs hipster. Regardless of whether we go for the standard ninjustu powerhouse or for something different for differences sake, we are going to stick to the spoiled princess theme right?
>>47766373I mean it's not like your character has a unique position in the Leaf, a unique tutor, unique release, somewhat unique choice of weapons, and a unique tutor. Nope that isn't enough.So instead of working with some time tested stuff lets just play with puppets cause we aren't special snowflake enough are we?Christ.
>>47766400Just wait to the point in the story where we decide this shit. don't do strawpolls.
>>47766422Oh totally.And we should amp up the spoiled princess act during the Chuunin Exams.
>>47766320>Let's not be the same fucking character as Kon or Takeshi.Let's not be defined by a shitty gimmick weapon that takes YEARS to be proficient with. >>47766361We are not, our release is completely incompatible and we're already learning other things. It takes YEARS of hard training to be competent enough to use puppets. >>47766367Don't baby them on this puppet shit Wargle, if they want it, make them work years to be good at it.
>>47766320>Being different for the sake of being different By your apparent standards Naruto, Kakashi, Kaguya, and Jiraiya are all the same because they mainly go in for ninjutsu with a healthy dose of taijutsu.
>>47766436I don't get it either, Puppets aren't the worst thing ever, but there's no reason for the MC to be interested in them. Wrong village for starters, and the whole mess is just impractical.
>>47766443Im fine with it taking years anon I knew that getting into this
>>47766442>>47766442If we do that, will use our secret Orihime family technique?Buying out everyone
>>47766464If you want it so bad run a San village quest where it's actually feasible.
>>47766469>We still get promoted because we showed that we were willing to play dirty to get the job doneI love how you don't even have to be amazing to pass the exams you just have to impress the judges
>>47766480Indeed.>>47766469I say we get musicians to play when Tsuki enters a room, enters a match, wins, etc.Several servants wtih a big palanquin for her to sit on.Just act like the most spoiled rotten bratty cunt imaginable.
>>47766498Its only feasible in this one because we have Danzo who will most likely find us a good teacher probably Sasori, if we didn't have that then I would be against doing a puppet too
>>47766501Going that far almost seems OOC nowadays.Tsuki is a prideful girl, but from what we've seen she's also pretty humble to 'commoners'.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wSAp991JIVs“Father!” you proclaim, standing suddenly. “Teach me! I want to know everything! I promise you, even if it takes one hundred generations, the Norihime will soar amongst the skies! We will find the power you need to make your dreams take flight!”You feel filled with energy and inspiration. Is this what father feels like when an idea takes him? It’s… intoxicating.You gained the trait: Norihime Genius! +20 to rolls dedicated towards inventions, creation of new techniques, or adaptations of previously existing techniques or technology. You also love to plan and design things, be it machinery or architecture. Instantly able to identify Norihime inventions.“My wonderful daughter!” Your father is weeping, hugging you tightly.“I thought you’d never ask! Together, we shall show them! What wonders we can create!(Roll 3d100, first 5. Show your Father just how dedicated you are!)
>>47766528>Its only feasible in this one because we have DanzoWargle has never said that. You all have assumed that. If it doesn't live up to your expectations don't blame him.
Rolled 41, 53, 91 = 185 (3d100)>>47766539
Rolled 19 + 20 (1d100 + 20)>>47766539Time to solve dad's energy problem
>>47766528I doubt we would get Sasori, but I think puppets would be fun and something we can tweak extensively, especially with our resources and genius inventor father.
Rolled 82, 51, 42 = 175 (3d100)>>47766539
Rolled 14, 37, 42 = 93 (3d100)>>47766539
Rolled 98, 42 = 140 (2d100)>>47766550Forgot two dice
Rolled 94, 24, 17 = 135 (3d100)>>47766539Rolling
Rolled 89, 53, 67 = 209 (3d100)>>47766539Yes>>47766550Wrong dice, good sir.
>>47766556Our new trait will help with that too
>>47766501I definitely like the music idea,oh we should also have something like butlers or maids on call to provide food, probably high-priced finger food type stuff, and... maybe we could rope in someone (neji? lee?) to act as a servant who's only job is to fan Tsuki to keep her cool between matches.
>>47766539Will it also go towards playing shogi?We have to beat Shika to show we're the smartest!
You guys seem to be forgetting that Tsuki's dad is a fucking brilliant inventor. Anything we can't learn about sand village puppetry can be supplemented by (or better yet, improved by) crazy weapons and gadgets.
>>47766582Man lets just turn this up to 11 and hire one of the other contestants to fight for us
>>47766582Hire fuckin' Mizuki for that.
>>47766597That would be hilarious, though I somehow don't think we would pass, unless they advance us for leadership and ingenuity skills.
>>47766597>>47766582As much as this sounds fun, we really should win it mostly our own.
>>47766583I hope so/think so
>>47766585Only if we build a puppet that can play shogi.
>>47766556>>47766596This is that circle jerking that Sleepy was telling you about. You're only going to piss people off.
>>47766533I figure we'd play up the spoiled brat aspect at the chunin exams so other villages just see that face of Tsuki and don't bother to look deeper and see anything that would make them consider her an overt threat.
>>47766614If we put in a fight at least once and show were up to snuff we could probably get away with it
>>47766533Only because you guys play her that way, anon.She's only as much of a bitch as you make her
>>47766635snuff...Are you saying we should tease and kill someone or am I miss understanding in my drunk state?
>>47766585Inventing a way to beat shikamaru? You bet!Just don't expect it to work more than once....
>>47766641Not listening to the DEVIL!
>>47766641I know, but it's good to establish a character personality and initial demeanor towards people like we have.Otherwise your MC comes off as bipolar or schizophrenic.
>>47766669We're spoiled and rotten towards people who deserve it. It's tiring to insult commers. Also, who would be friends to a total bitch? We have them now.
>>47766650Misunderstanding, just saying that if we fought once and showed that were good enough to become a chuunnin on skills then we can fuck around and play dirty if we want>>47766669I agree anon, I kind of want to play her as the bratty spoiled princess who is a complete asshole to people who she doesn't consider friends, at least until she gets it beaten out of her
Ok folks we got our theme tune now we need to gather disciples for Danzo and ourselves. Utterly loyal to a fault.
>>47766630Then they can get some thicker skin. There isn't any reason why anons that like the puppet idea can't talk about it and think up ways to make it more unique to our character.
>>47766690It's been over a month anon. If you haven't gotten a clue yet there is no hope for you.
>>47766732nah, just not interested in a half dead trial board that was a bad idea to begin with
>>47766704Or you could at least make it productive or interesting instead of >PUPPETS WEEEEEEEEEEEEE >What? They're not interesting or useful compared to other things? >I don't care let's wank each other off and talk about them some more XDXDXDXDXDXDXD
>>47766732Pretty sure that everyone on 4chan is an asshole anon.Just filter Quest before you get an ulcer.
>>47766732Trial board, not mandatory to go thereIt's a shit holedoesn't do better than here.No rules against us being here.It was implemented horribly and is a horrible idea. Get over it. Literally all you have to do is sue a filter.
>>47766732Nah, the QM just likes using /tg/. I personally prefer /qst/ because the tag system really cuts down on samefagging and makes reading only the QM's posts much easier, but some people just like the tradition.
>>47766759I myself hate /qst/ because of the tags. It feels unnatural on an anonymous mongolian underwater basket weaving forum.
>>47766748That's just your opinion. I find a mix of chakra, technology, and strategy to be significantly more interesting than just learning new jutsu. If you don't like the puppet talk then just ignore it. It isn't like we're forcing you to read it.
So then, since we've got the family theme of flying machines, how do we go about making flying puppets... I guess we'd basically be making ninjutsu based drones but what sort of capabilities would we want on them? make them cheap and replaceable and give them a fuckton of explosive tags or a way to deploy a burst of our release? or do we give them seals filled with ranged weapons for mobile gun platforms to harry foes while we build up big nasty spells?
>>47766748Not that anon but here is why I support the puppet approachI felt in canon tools became redundant to quickly, it all become a ninjutsu show which in of itself is fine I just felt a little saddened by it. Too me puppets are a tool that can still be used even late game and can come in alot of forms and shapes, a tool for every task.I have all these ideas for themes and strategies which I admit may not come to pass but I think they could be fun operating as a "controller" as it were. I felt like in the anime Sasori got ripped off and jobbed it for plot sake (like most Akatski). I just want to see something seemingly basic in the end game.>Just thought i'd share since it is getting a little crazy in here
>>47766800Keep it in your pants until progress has been made on building stuff.
>>47766800I think we could do both honestly, we make a bunch of easily made puppets that we use as suicide bombers which we sealing into a scroll, and the gun platforms being made of sturdier material and use senbon launchers and poison/smoke screens. But I don't see either becoming our main puppet that has to be something really versatile
>>47766669We already have a pretty well-established personality, from what I can see. We're spoiled and haughty, but we're also very diplomatic, and we know how to dial back the ohohoho around people who need to be shown respect.She also seems to be annoyed by the idea of a person who lets others stifle them, as evidenced by our talk with Hinata. Not only is she our friend, but she's not trying her very best to reach for the stars, and that's just unacceptable.Tsuki is a princess who understands what it means to not be the only one with authority. For lack of a better term, she plays the game very well, especially for her age. She's a merchant princess who embodies that mindset very well.And based on the pictures, she's also pretty cute, but that's just a bonus. Gotta be cute.
Pass! You are truly your father’s daughter….You spend begin furiously writing down schematics- not all of them make sense- but they don’t have to! Not yet!You eventually narrow down what you believe are your choices- the feasible ones, anyway- to four.A tailed beast- Not really replicable, but could at least get the main ship going.Human chakra power- replicable, but you’re unsure how many people you would needUnqiue chakra power- something unqiue within chakra, such as yours. (Not revealing stellar right now)Super energy rich mineral- Something that could power a sky-bound warship. You cannot think of one now, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t exit.You present these ideas to father.He flips through them, nodding.“Seems you’ve reached about where I was, although a tailed beast is something I hadn’t considered. You think we could get our hands on one?” He isn’t joking, or even laughing, you realize. He’s taking you entirely seriously.“As for chakra power, conventional or otherwise- I wouldn’t recommend it. A few associates of mine, along with myself and Danzo, tried it once. It worked for a time- but it ended rather grisly. We didn’t even get off the ground. Not particularly effective unless you fancy capturing whole villages.”He still isn’t dismissing it, though….“This last one- this is what I’ve been banking on. This world of ours is filled with unique minerals being discovered all the time- If something super energy dense is found, it could easily solve our problems….”“Thank you, Tsuki. My beautiful daughter. I feel like I can pass the burden of this dream to you. You don’t need to solve it now, or even before I die. But I believe in you, and your ability. It’s in your blood.”He smile again, and hugs you tightly. Your father has always doted on you, but never like this. You feel like, maybe for the first time ever, he sees you as a grown woman fully deserving of her own respect.
>>47766809I respect that opinion anon. But I find it unfeasible in the extreme. Puppets are completely at odds with our special snowflake release type, and how we've been solving our problems. I also don't believe it will be as simple as you all seem to believe. There will be hard training involved, every single one of the puppet users in the canon lore had trained since a young age to use the almost exclusively, besides some basic stuff and chiyo's healing, they never use other kinds of weapons or ninjutsu.
>>47766867>He smile again, and hugs you tightly. Your father has always doted on you, but never like this. You feel like, maybe for the first time ever, he sees you as a grown woman fully deserving of her own respect.
Now fella's I know what we're all thinking...aint there a tailed beast with Magnet release coming to town soon...
>>47766944WE wouldn't know that in character.
>>47766809Those are entirely valid reasons. I'm not disagreeing with you on any of that. But I do agree with >>47766871 that mastering puppets would probably involve adopting a fighting style that's completely opposed to the direction in which we seem to be developing. That's not necessarily a bad thing, but in orser for it to make sense, I think we would need some sort of event to take place that really got it in Tsuki's head that puppets were the way to go. Having her just up and start training for puppets wouldn't make a whole lot of sense right now.Now that we've taking more of a diret interest in the family business, maybe we can develop something similar in implementation that fits us a little better.
>>47766871No reason we can't do it anyway. Special releases are nice, but that doesn't mean we have to focus too much on it. Besides, very few enemies that see our headband would expect a leaf ninja to be skilled with puppets. We might not be starting that early compared to other puppet users, but we're actually still pretty young. Maybe it isn't something we could effectively use on our next several missions, but it would be a neat goal to work for, especially if we could design our own puppets for various tasks,
>>47766871So you want to build our skill set just around our release? Well I for one don't want to be a min-maxing faggot that just sticks solely to an ability that the qm gave us.>>47766892I wonder if Gaara is any different in this timeline? My money is on him being a happy and well adjusted but shy guy who crushes hard on Tsuki.
So if we ever learn how to make human puppets who should we go for?I think if would be cool if we some how got the third Raikage's body
>>47766983It makes sense for us to focus on the release, and I'm sure we could do awesome stuff with it. I'd just rather not get stuck just using it like in Laze's quest. Kon was cool and all, but it was unfortunate that he lost some of his ingenuity and trap skills to more fully develop his Impact stuff.
>>47766980I think you're grasping at straws to justify it. Kankuro was considered a fucking prodigy at it, it still took him like 17 years to use three at the same time. Sasori the actual prodigy was crazy and had access to the actually good puppets that are made from killing people and using their corpses. >>47766983>Minmaxing Nigger, I'm talking about being a balanced shinobi. By their very nature puppet users have to incredibly specialized to be even remotely relevant. That's real minmaxing.
You spend more time conversing with him- only for you to realize how late it must be.You quickly give him a peck on the cheek and shout something about “sleep” and “late” before running off to bed.Yoru Norihime just laughs.You hit your bed running, and you find sleep difficult.Eventually though, you dream.Of the open sky, of great whirling cogs of machinery.Standing on the bow of your ship, lacy gown fluttering in the wind.You dream of merchants- the people who will come to bow before your mighty trade empire.The common men and women who cannot help to buy Norihime- it’s simply the best!“Ohohohohohoho!~ The Norihime Trade League accepts your money with open arms, peasants! Let the sweat of your brow fuel our future!”It’s a nice dream.…………….……………………….….…...You wake with a start. Right, mission. Conquering the world comes later. First, the mission.
>>47767024I never read Laze's quest. Shame that happened. I'd honestly rather use the awesome swords we acquired in conjunction with our fans and lightning and fire styles. The stellar release is just icing on the cake.
I sometimes wish we, Hinata, and Nori were the queens of school and do queenie stuff. Like being snobby, pick on nerds and being fabulous.>>47767030Does our dad Ohohoho as well?
>>47767045>Does our dad Ohohoho as well?He probably Ahahahahas like a mad scientist.
>>47767030Tsuki is getting cuter, Wargle. Her moments of exuberance and mild goofiness are really endearing.
>>47767045Rip, I would've loved that. So rarely does /tg/ enjoy being the queen bee.
>>47767055>>47767045Someday I may write a gaiden chapter or something about the academy days. Far into the future, though.
>>47767099Oh I'd kiss you
>>47767099Might be fun. I somehow doubt Hinata will take part in the fun too much. Maybe Nori, but thats just because she's kind of abrasive. Its more likely we would team up with Ino or someone else to dish out the schoolyard torment.
>>47767099>roll for trigonometry
>>47767050I can imagine how it sounds in my head. It's beautiful. >Father and Daughter laughing together
>>47767131>Ino uses mind jutsu to make the kid keep hitting himself while Tsuki makes fun of the kidThis writes itself
You find that all things considered, you didn’t sleep in too much. Definitely didn’t get as much sleep as you’d like, but you should be fine.As you get ready, you make a mental note from here on out to keep an eye out for anything you could use to help father- your travels as a shinobi are sure to expose you to great number of things.As you approach the village gate, though, something seems off…Why are there so many people there?You..1. Head on in. You’ll figure out what’s going on.2. Hang back a minute, see who’s there.
>>47767173>2. Hang back a minute, see who’s there.
>>47767150>The teacher sees what's happening. They come over to chastise us. We flip them a wad of cash and they walk away.
>>47767173>2. Hang back a minute, see who’s there.Always be abreast of whats happening in our village
>>47767173>1. Head on in. You’ll figure out what’s going on.We're in our own village, what could go wrong?
>>47767173>1. Head on in. You’ll figure out what’s going on.
>>47767173>2. Hang back a minute, see who’s there.Gotta get a good grasp on what's happening before we wander ahead.
>>47767185You know having the power of money makes some of the arcs completely trivial. Like the Wave arc all we would have to do is pay Zabuza more money to come work for us
>>47767220Itachi would wreak Zabuza. No contest.
>>47767220Did Naruto mention how much Zabuza was getting paid already? If its a pretty high amount, we don't want to spend too much at once.
Hanging back.Writing.You guys ain't gonna be going to the land of waves
>>47767295No reason to go there when our very presence makes this the land of s w a g.
>>47767295wheel of fillerturn turn turnwhich filler character's negative pov on life shall we burn?
>>47767232It wouldn't be that one sided, Zabuza's actually alot stronger then you thinkhttp://naruto.wikia.com/wiki/Zabuza_Momochi
>>47767220we could give him enough money to finally buy some nipples
>>47767312I said that Itachi would win no contest. Not that he would perfect Zabu.
You decide to hang back a moment- just to see who is milling about the village gate.You count them…You see Kakashi, standing by Sai and Naruto. Neji is nowhere to be seen.Itachi-sensei is here, with Nori and Hinata.Guy is also here, with Sasuke, Lee and Sakura. You suppose that means you’re the last to arrive…. Oops.You stroll into the awaiting group of shinobi, attempting to keep a confident stride.“Ah, Tsuki, you’ve arrived.” Itachi says, separating himself from the group. “We’re all about to head off on missions, so everyone was doing a bit of catching up.Everyone turns to you…You talk to…1. Your Team2. Kakashi’s Team3. Guy’s Team
>>47767531>1. Your Team
>>477675311. Your TeamThe boys have to come to us
>>47767531>2. Kakashi’s TeamCongratulate Naruto on his big win.
So the internet in my house just croaked. Obviously one wins.I'm gonna try to resusitate the tubes, we'll see how that goes. Stay tuned.
>>47767633Well that sucks. Hope ya get it cleared up.
so how long should an anon wait before giving up and fucking off to bed
>>47767804Another 10 minutes, most quests seem to have about a half an hour between posts
He'll be back dw
You walk over to your team- Nori and Hinata both greet you warmly. The three of you chat a little and exchange pleasantries before Itachi comes back over to tell you what’s going on.“Our team along with Guy’s have been assigned to a joint C-Rank mission- we’re to assist the Land of Hot Springs with putting down some armed militants near the border between them and the Land of Frost- a small nation under the thumb of Kumogakure. The militants aren’t shinobi and seem armed only with conventional weapons, so we are to go in and remove them. By any means necessary.“Search and destroy, huh?” Nori says, obviously pumped up. “Nice and simple. What about my brother’s team?”“Judgement is still forthcoming on the exams, and as Neji is injured, they’re being sent deal with a different C-Rank mission- to protect some bridge builder in the Land of Waves.”
And since I'm now posting on my phone's hotspot, I'm going to end the thread. We'll resume tomorrow once the outage is over.Love you all.@WargleQM for dreams of a noble futureI'll be around on my phone as well.
>>47767862Thanks for running
>>47767862>We'll resume tomorrowFuck yes.And see you then, Wargle!
>>47767852>to protect some bridge builder in the Land of WavesHa!
>>47767862Thanks for running Wargle, have a good night. fuck puppets reeeeeee
>>47767862do you need somebody else to archive the thread?
>>47767862Thanks for running and I hope ya get your interwebs back.Also need more sweet nothings?
I wonder whats going to go horribly wrong in our mission
>>47767852>to protect some bridge builder in the Land of WavesOh shit, and they're a man down? Hope that goes well for them
>>4776785210 britbongbux says they're armed with Norihime-made weaponry.
>>47767890Are we gonna get kidnapped and forces to built weapons?in a cave with a box of scraps
>>47767902Oh dear lord
>>47767881The people that hired Team 7 start attacking them 'cause the daughter of the arms dealer that supplied the mercenaries is on the team.
>>47767890yup and we can nick it or pull a Sasori and jab it at just the right place so it fall apart.>>47767882They'll be just fine, no issues given their power levels, should just say hope you have better luck than us to them for the lols when they get back.
>>47767908That could be some funny shit, both sides hire some leaf nin only to bump into one another
>>47767875Got it handled. Thanks though!
Three words: Stellar. Kunai. Railgun.The Lightning side charges the weapon and the Fire side heats the projectile.
>>47767956I was thinking of creating a meteor shower attack.
>>47767956>>47767979Or Tsuki could end up doing SHINING FINGER as her own version of Chidori or Hell Stab.>http://naruto.wikia.com/wiki/Hell_Stab
>>47767996But anon we would need to meet up with MASTER ASIA lets fucking do it
>>47768006>Implying MASTER ASIA isn't Danzo
>>47767862Thanks for running, Wargle. I'm glad I caught one of these threads for once.hotsprings shenanigans next time?
>>47768006>Master Asia Who?
We should pull a gate of babylon, big scroll and when they are summoned they pass through a ring of Stellar chakra "charging them" and launching explosive kunai like a god damn missile boat. They'd be coming out high speed, hi penetration and exploding
>>47768070I think that's master-level and too unrealistic for us.
>>47768070That's probably the neatest idea for a jutsu I've seen in a while. A bit similar to TenTen but still. I want to see what our release can do to those swords and maybe our fans.
>>47768051A man with a 6 in Taijutsuhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IAizwLfZbUA
>>47767996>Stellar Finger GO!On the sole condition that someone links to the song every time.
>>47768070Stellar chakra can be thrown, and I'm almost certain it can make jets, so what about fly-by-wire guided missiles?
The funny thing about all this G Gundam posting, is that I fucking love G Gundam. I literally have the school of the undefeated of the east mantra memorized.Never change /tg/
>>47768110That might be a bit much anon. Stellar is essentially plasma which is a fourth state of matter. It doesn't really work like jets.
>>47768123G Gundam was the one I saw the most of when I was a kid.Always loved it.Dragon Gundam is my favorite official gundam.
>>47768123G Gundam is best Gundam Wargle. How do you feel about best girl though?
>>47768138Burning is my eternal favorite.
>>47768123As you should. G Gundam is amazing.
>>47768148Nether Gundam best Gundam
>>47768138Master Gundam with his Gundam horse (piloted by his actual horse, Fuunsaiki) is my favorite because of insane it is
>>47768148Burning is awesome, yes, but I haven't seen much of it when I was younger.Plus I just like how Dragon looks more.Burning is still cool, though, don't get me wrong.>>47768145>Beardsley>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s1FoHnGYeBw
>>47768145She was too good for Domon. With any luck, Tsuki will find a nice girl like Allenby to settle down with; or rather to NEVER settle down with.
>>47768145Allenby was my first waifuFuck Raine may she burn eternally.
>>47768164Never saw that part.
>>47768174You speak the eternal truth. Rain was lame, Allenby was a 10/10 qt3.14
>>47768174>>47768181I like Rain, but I either don't remember Allenby or just never saw her.
>>47768174Excellent taste Wargle, I still get mad that Domon didn't chose her she is literal perfection on every level
>>47768182Rain was fine, just dull compared to Allenby, who came much later in the show.
>>47768191>who came much later in the show.Probably why I never saw her.
>>47768182Rain is fine at first. She becomes a colossal jealous cunt during the Gundam Fight arc, because she feels threatened by Allenby getting along with Domon, tl the point that she temporarily betrays him and starts helping out the one rival he hasn't been able to beat up to that point .So yeah, fuck Rain.
>>47764560Whenever I see this thread I wonder what Linux distro's symbol is in the OP, without fail
>>47768206Leaf Linux, obviously
>>47768204Honestly I don't like Rain but she honestly had every right to feel threatened Domon and Allenby were literally perfect together from the first moment they met
>>47768236This. The chemistry was great. 10 year old Wargle was entirely behind her winning the Domon war
>>47768244I just imagined 10 year old wargle. Cute
>>47768236Feeling threatened was fine. The extent to which she took it was thr issue, along with her just being generally bitchy to Domon during that subplot.Allenby was better due to being a better fit for Domon and just having a non-shitty personality. She even took Domon choosing Rain in stride.
>>47768257I was a cute kidAlso how have people not mentioned our our lord and savior tequila gundam
>>47768174A gentleman and a scholar. Technically Ryoko was my "first waifu" before I even knew what that was, but Allenby was still best girl of her show.
>>47768271Dragon Gundam is Best Gundam.
>>47768268I feel the same way its just I understand why she would feel threatened when this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SIhFL3VQ4wg was their first meeting>>47768281Noble Gundam best gundam
>>47768290That's alright.Dragon is better tho
>>47768296Sai was the worst pilot though, make way for the best non Domon shuffle member
>>47768301I'm not talking about pilots.I'm talking about the suits themselves.I love Dragon Gundam the most.That, and the Chinese knock-off Gundam.
>>47768301My nigga chibodee crocketI love Neo America so much
>>47768315Dragon Gundam is very asthetically pleasing. I just enjoyed how crazy some of the suits got by the end.
>>47768244So, Wargle, what are the odds of Tsuki getting an Allenby of her own?
>>47768244>>47768342Hopefully a male version.
>>47768323Chibodee was the best in everything bar noneHarem of chicksBest individual episode (The clown one)Manliest Gundam
>>47768347Either or, really. I don't mind if Tsuki likes boys, girls, or even both.
>>47768365Both would be fine, but I'd prefer a female QMC that likes boys instead of just girls.
>>47768374Why not have both im sure a guy wouldn't mind having two waifus
>>47768342>>47768347>>47768374Tsuki most likely isn't going /u/. Especiallly with her teammates. Mot trying to push an agenda, but just isn't her. We'll see where her boy troubles take her in time
>>47768402I can see her being playfully flirty with a girl, or trying it out sometime, or even being bisexual, but I don't see Tsuki being a lesbian.
>>47768374Agreed, both sounds good. Besides, a clever merchant princess knows how to appreciate beauty in all its forms, isn't afraid to (secretly) indulge in the unconventional and forbidden, and always keeps her options open.
>>47768410She'd probably do it at least once just to experience it. She hates feeling left out.
>>47768431>She hates feeling left out.That's adorable.We should explore that in omakes and downtime in between missions.
>>47768431I really dig the idea she's kind of crushing on Itachi. That forehead poke made me squee like a little girl.
>>47768445>That forehead poke made me squee like a little girl.I got excited too.
>>47768458Not gonna lie, Itachi is kind of hot.
>>47768479All the girls think so.It'd be funny if Sakura confesses to Tsuki that she thinks she's lucky 'cause of her hot teacher.
>>47768431So I'm currently reading the archives, will catch up soon with any luck. If puppets are still an option, you realize we've gotta become pic related, right?
So after we eventually reveal Stellar Release to dad, anyone else want to see if he can whip up an sweet ninja toosl that makes use of it? A grenade we precharge with chakra to make up for its current large drain on our reserves? Gauntlet that focuses Steller chakra like Iron Man's repulsors?
