Shinobi Quest #16This 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, Tsuki Norihime and friends set out from the Valley of the End towards the Land of Hot Springs. Along the way, they discovered a village under attack by frightening monsters that nobody present had ever seen. The creatures cut a bloody swathe through the village, seemingly killing the peasants at random; all while exulting their master- someone called Lord Orochimaru. Opting to not get involved, the shinobi party fled towards Yugakure, the stop for the night. Tsuki and Hinata both seemed to suffer from horrible dreams….The next day, the team headed towards Reisui Village, home of the client and the victims of the bandits you were to hunt. Reaching the village without incident, Tsuki was able to gather information from a fruit merchant, at the price of a pouch full of fruit. Returning to the others, a plan was formed to lure out the bandits-
“Forward, peasants! Onward towards Yugakure! The Norihime Family doesn’t pay you to simply idle around!”Lee and Guy immediately begin to pull the cart. Guy seems like he’s enjoying himself, while Lee is loudly huffing and puffing as he struggles to keep pace with his sensei.“Faster! Faster! 10,000 Ryo for you both if we make it there before nightfall! Ohohohohohohoho!~”The speed at which Lee and Guy are pulling increases, and you begin thundering down the southern road….------------------------------------The plan seems to be going well- at least, you’re having fun. You haven’t run into any bandits, but you’re sure the plan is foolproof. How could they resist?Sakura and Hinata seem to be enjoying themselves, playing at being your “ladies-in-waiting”, and taking a moment now and again to tease Sasuke as he drives the carriage- you join in as well. He deserves it for grumbling.Nori is peering out the window; she doesn’t seem particularly interested in the fun. Maybe she’s focused on the mission, or maybe it’s something else?You…1. Ask Nori what’s on her mind2. Leave her be, be on alert.3. Continue to tease Sasuke with Hinata and Sakura
>>47882144>1. Ask Nori what’s on her mind
>>47882144>1. Ask Nori what’s on her mindOccasionally tease the sauce.

>>47882144>1. Ask Nori what’s on her mind>3. Continue to tease Sasuke with Hinata and SakuraBully him for Danzo.
You decide to leave Hinata and Sakure to it- they’ve got him under control.You shuffle around a bit so you’re sitting on Nori’s side of the carriage. “Hey, what’s up? You usually love teasing people. I figured you’d jump at the chance to take Sensei’s brother down a notch.” you say with a smile.“Hm? Oh, yeah. Normally I would. I’m just kinda pondering over what you and Hinata were talking about. I didn’t see it, but I can’t help but thinking, was it the right thing to do? Just leaving those people to die like that? I’m sure my dad would’ve rushed in to save them, acting the hero. That would be very like him.”You respond…1. We aren’t exactly on the Fourth’s level…2. We had a mission to complete.3. It wouldn’t have mattered- not against what you saw.4. You’re right, maybe we should tried to help…>Write-In
>>47882633> We aren't exactly on the Fourth's level...> And we have a mission to complete...> But maybe you're right

>>47882633>1. We aren’t exactly on the Fourth’s level…>2. We had a mission to complete.>3. It wouldn’t have mattered- not against what you saw.>5.We'd only have been a liability out there.
>>47882633>We're Genin. If we'd jumped in, we'd be forcing our Sensei to try and win the fight...we can't save everyone. I...don't want to lose another Sensei...

>>47882633>1. We aren’t exactly on the Fourth’s level…>Write-In"Right? I don't know. I didn't like leaving those people, but we wouldn't have stood a chance against those creatures as we are now. Just got to get stronger right?"
Mixture of 1, 2 & 3Writing.
>>47882633>1. We aren’t exactly on the Fourth’s level…>3. It wouldn’t have mattered- not against what you saw."It was a shitty situation. If we went in there not all us were going to make it back. That's why we are getting stronger yeah?"
Nori's Hot Dad list:ShikakuInoichiOur dadWay too formal:FugakuHiashiLol:Chōza
“You didn’t see those things, Nori. I’m sure Itachi-sensei and Guy could’ve beaten some of them- but there were so many… we would’ve been a liability. I won’t ever be one again, Nori. Besides, if any of us got hurt, we wouldn’t have been able to complete our mission. Maybe if we were the Fourth’s level, we could run in and play hero- but I’m more worried about our survival. That includes you too, Nori.” You explain.She frowns.“Yeah, I know. I shouldn’t have doubted what Itachi-sensei said. You’re all about the mission, at any rate. I get it, they’re important, but we should try to help folks to, you know? That’s being human. That’s what Naruto says anyway.”You can’t say you agree with that philosophy- you just hope that her brother’s propensity towards action over caution doesn’t get him killed one day.“They’re here” Sasuke growls from the front of the carriage- this causes both you and Nori to snap out of your dreary conversation.“Hold there, travelers! If you’re coming along the southern road, surely you know of the toll that must be paid?” You hear a voice say outside.You…1. Let Sasuke handle the talking2. Step out of the carriage to talk to the ruffians.
>>47883198>2. Step out of the carriage to talk to the ruffians.Like were not going to play this character every chance we get
>>47883198>2. Step out of the carriage to talk to the ruffians.
>>478831982. Step out of the carriage to talk to the ruffians.
>>47883198>2. Step out of the carriage to talk to the ruffians.Maximum Ohohoho, but send a clone not actually ourselves just in case they take a cheap shot
>>47883198>2Ask Sauske if he want's to burn some of that stress he's been building and Follow our Clone to talk with the bandit.
>>47883198>3. Send out a clone to talk to the Ruffians
>>47883198> A toll? What toll? Ew, Tai, someone, get a blanket, I don't want to get my shoes muddy. Oh, and prep the tea, I want tea. You were saying about the toll?Make us seem cushy as possible and then we can kick their asses.
>>47883384Seconding this. We are weak and adorable. Bathe in their blood later
I hope we are wearing a glove so if they kiss our hand in an attempt to smooth talk us we can take it off and burn it, filthy, disgusting, unclean peasants.
Time for ohohohohoWriting
>>47883526But using a Shadow Clone right?
>>47883546We'll be fine. If anything, they're going to kidnap us for ransom, not randomly shoot us.
>>47883602I don't want to be a hostage. Besides, they might be missing nin.
>>47883626We already found out they're regular dudes, just well-armed with our dad's tech
>>47883626Let me rephrase. They're going to TRY and kidnap us for ransom, then fail utterly because we're a ninja surrounded by a bunch of other ninja.
>>47883792Remember what happened on the last 'Easy' mission?
>>47883882Don't be a paranoid schizophrenic, Anon. The statistical likelihood of that happening is next to none. Guy and Itchie are right next to us in or on the carriage, so there should not be a problem.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wSAp991JIVsBefore Sasuke has time to speak, the act takes over.“Oh dear, Ko, have we been waylaid? Whatever is the matter?” You say, pouring it on as thick as you dare.“Yes, Milady. They say there is a toll.” Sasuke responds somewhat in-character, to his credit.“A toll? Oh my. Put the tea on, Ko. I shall speak to these men- ladies, if you would.”Sakura, Hinata and Nori all exit the carriage, spreading a large sheet on the bare earth. It’s Sakura that announces you- good girl.“Make way for her ladyship, the heiress of the glorious Norihime Conglomerate! Bow your heads, peasants, you stand before royalty! Mistress Tsuki, we await thee.” “Not before my tea, dear. Ohohohohoho!~” you retort. You’re probably enjoying this a little too much.Sasuke appears nearby the door, holding a teacup you bought from the inn. Surprisingly, there’s actual tea in the cup, and it looks hot.Might as well get this show going…You wrap a furry scarf around yourself, and don a pair of sheer black gloves- again, bought using your travel funds- and take a step down off the carriage. Sasuke offers up the tea, and you take the cup. The girls all kneel before you, and Sasuke bows. “Now, I understand you folks mentioned some toll?” you say haughtily. Looking at them, they definitely look the part of highwaymen- and you can see some of the kunai launchers strapped to their backs.“Why yes ma’am, we-”“Ah-ah, peasant. Not before I’ve had a drink to soothe my aching throat. Very uncouth, making a lady come all this way.” you say, holding up a single finger.The men seem totally confused- good.
>>47883958>You’re probably enjoying this a little too much.NOT NEARLY ENOUGH!
You take a drink of the tea- it tastes utterly vile. He’ll need to work on that. But a lady doesn’t spit.You swallow the liquid, then look at the men expectantly.“Well, come on then. I don’t have all day. Out with it!” you say, turning up the heat.“W-well you see, we’re here collecting the toll for the upkeep of the southern road….” the man in front starts- you tune him out. Looking around, you see about 10 other men, in various positions around the carriage. Not enough.“Upkeep? Surely you don’t mean to charge me for using this track of dirt! Look at my poor manservants!” you say, pointing to Guy and Lee, who are both shirtless. When did that happen?“Ko, you were right! These northern folk, they have very odd senses of humor! Ohohohohohoho!~” you laugh. You see Itachi-sensei circling overhead.The men look to each other, obviously still flummoxed about what to do.What to do…1. Extend the act. Give more time for everyone to get in position.2. Order the attack! You tire of these games.>Write-in
>>47884005>1. Extend the act. Give more time for everyone to get in position.Too funny.
>>478840051. Extend the act. Give more time for everyone to get in position.
>>47884005>1. Extend the act. Give more time for everyone to get in position.Actually, what we're doing is seeing how long we can milk it before someone just calls bullshit. A test in acting ability!
>>47884005>1. Extend the act. Give more time for everyone to get in position.Also>That fucking star & blue fire coatThe best!
>>47884005>1. Extend the act. Give more time for everyone to get in position.Is there really even a choice?
>>47884005>1. Extend the act. Give more time for everyone to get in position.
>>47884005The answer is obviously>1. Extend the act. Give more time for everyone to get in positionWe don't get to Ohohoho~! nearly enough for an Ojousama of our fine breeding, so we must relish this opportunity.
>>47884005> Extend it a little longer. Ask him where they got those lovely little spike-flingers on their backs - oh, kunai, you say? I could have sworn they were called spikeys, I'm so sorry. Ko, are they really called kunai? Oh, dear me. Anyways, my family does a great deal of business with gentlemen such as yourselves, with our spike-flingers, and I'd like to make you an offer you can't refuse...Just act like we think he's part of the official guard around these parts or something. Get up close and do lots of hand gestures like Billy Mays and such. When the time's right stab him or kick him in the balls.
Get ready to catch a kunai thats gonna get launched at us or our boy servent saus....Ko. Wink at our comrades, we got this shit down
By the way, whats our play here... I propose We hold wad of cash out with a few explosive tags in it. As they set away blow'em sky high then start attacking as burning money rains from the sky...No price can be put on style.
>>47884249I was thinking we'd just shiv him when we got close and then everyone could jump the rest.
Might as well have some more fun at these idiots’ expense.“A-all the same miss-” the front man starts.“Tut! Manners, you ruffian! Did your mother never teach how to address one so far above yourself? You may address me as Norihime-sama, or Heiress, if you prefer.” you say whilst scowling, casting your gaze down the bridge of your nose to these men. “Heiress, then. All the same, heiress, the toll is mandated by the Land of Hot Springs- 25% of all material wealth carried with intent to do business.” a different, larger man says, stepping forward.You see Lee and Guy have freed themselves from the carriage, and are stretching. Only a little more.“Ohohohohohohohohohoho!~” you laugh, only partially feigning the laughter.“That is a really bad deal, you cretins. Here, let the prodigy of the Norihime Conglomerate show you how business is done!”You make an act of looking over your carriage, very slowly. As you do, you make eye contact with each member of your entourage, and wink- Sasuke, Sakura, Hinata… and Nori, who’s barely holding in her laughter.You see Itachi-sensei land in the distance- none of the men seem to notice.Finally, you appear before the men again- you can tell at this point they’re really bristling.“I’ve decided what I’m going to pay you lot…..” you say, holding the silence for effect.“Nothing! Ohohohohohohohohohohohohohohohohohoho!~”The men stand there for a moment, dumbstruck.Now is your chance!How do you wish to press the attack?1. Up close for a surprise attack!2. Stay mid-range to support with your fan and kunai!3. Stay back and use jutsu and kunai to attack!4. Play support and go where needed!
>>47884535>2. Stay mid-range to support with your fan and kunai!
>>47884535>4. Play support and go where needed!
>>47884535>4. Play support and go where needed!Best we can do right now
>>47884535> Play supportFeels like what Tsuki would do, being team mom and all. And after what our last few encounters have entailed.
>>478845352. Stay mid-range to support with your fan and kunai!
>>478845353. Stay back and use jutsu and kunai to attack!4. Play support and go where needed!
Playing Support.Writing.Roll For Personal Combat Effectiveness!(1d100, first 5)
Rolled 20 (1d100)>>47884744
You know I kinda like the idea that, only Sauske and Utachi really see's through our act, that we may indeed be as proper as they come, but he can see behind it all, its an exuberant act to throw people off.
Rolled 10 (1d100)>>47884744
Rolled 5 (1d100)>>47884744
Rolled 25 (1d100)>>47884744
Rolled 30 (1d100)>>47884744
Holy shit these rolls....
>>47884749>>47884767>>47884774>>47884776>>47884779That's kind of impressive actually.
Rolled 16 (1d100)>>47884744
Is there such thing as fate points...we really need fate points.
Going to be completely honest here, if one roll decides that we fuck this up... That's kind of dumb for exactly this reason.
>>47884749>>47884767>>47884774>>47884776>>47884779We won another dead sensei!
This is personal when facing regular dudes with gear. Hopefully they don't need that much support.
>>47884803No we don't. I hate whenever anon fails in a best of 3/5 on d100s where the odds are always in your favor someone says we need fucking fate points. We win a majority of our rolls.
>>47884803Don't be a little bitch.
>>47884835Except we haven't. Our rolls are fucking awful.
>>47884857Averages nigger. Are you dumb? Shit happens.
>>47884857This set is awful. A huge number of other rolls are just fine, because the average of best of 3 on d100 is 78 or something.
>>47884835Tell that to Ebisu.
>>47884857Confirmation bias. You conveniently forget the times we get 80+ cause its a simple 'We pass yay!' but you remember the bad ones more cause those have lingering negative effects.>>47884885Exactly. You only remember Ebisu. So now you want an easier mode for our already easy-ish mode.
>>47884803Its naruto... obviously we don't get fate points, we get flashback points where we get to describe how the fuckup was actually the intended outcome
>>47884907No news is good news, and vice versa
Gai is hereLee is hereSauceman is hereNori is like at least half a jinchuurikithe enemies are fuckwit bandits in the asshole of the worldworst case scenario Tsuki's self esteem take a hit from not being helpful enough.
>>47885045Worst case Tsuki trips and falls on her own kunai and dies.
>>47885045Yeah.Fags like >>47885070 keep really overreacting to bad rolls.
>>47885070Maybe if we rolled five 1s
DC:40 Failure!You decide that you’ll play support- after starting the battle with a bang.“Boys, boys. I know what you’re thinking- we’ll just take the money from her! She’s just a little girl!” you condescend, walking towards the large man with more swagger than you once thought yourself capable of.As the man looks down at you, you continue.“But! I implore you not to underestimate me! I am the prodigy of the Norihime clan! I am Tsuki Norihime! You peasants should-”The man backhands you- hard. You tumble to ground, but as you do, you see everyone else spring into motion. Your head is spinning; everything seems a blur to you. You hear the sounds of combat all around you- and finally, you pick yourself up.Seems you missed out on almost the entire fight.As you ready yourself, you see Lee and Guy finish off the last of the bandits. Nori runs over to you- “Hey! Princess! You alright? I think you may have overdone it a little bit….” she says, showing actual concern.“Yeah, I’m alright. Looks like everything else went according to plan, though.” you mumble.Hinata and Sakura, noticing you’re awake, run over and begin to coo over you like actual maids. You shoo them off- you want to see the big guy.He’s knocked out- face bloodied nearly beyond recognition. You wonder who did that?Finally the group recollects- Itachi-sensei says that all of the bandits have either been neutralized or incapacitated.“Are you alright, Tsuki?” Itachi asks with obvious concern. “I just got a little overzealous, that’s all.” you pout.It’s come time to interrogate your prisoners-How do you wish to do so?1. Torture them, vile pigs.2. Standard interrogation process.3. Quick and Easy- have Itachi do it.
>>47885081Meh. Dad has enough money to pay for True Resurrection.
>>47885102>1. Torture them, vile pigs.
>>47885102>3. Quick and Easy- have Itachi do it.see the sharingan in action
>>47885102>2. Standard interrogation processI'm betting Lee or Guy messed him up.
>>47885102>2. Standard interrogation process.Lets see how we do. If we need to we can bring in Itachi.
>>47885102>3. Quick and Easy- have Itachi do it.
>>47885102>1. Torture them, vile pigs.Feathers to the feet! Slightly too salty water to the eyes! Snapping rubber bands to the ba- eyes!
>>47885102>2. Standard interrogation process.
>>47885102>3. Quick and Easy- have Itachi do it.>4. Ask Itachi to walk you through the process of genjutsu-oriented interrogations.
>>47885102>1. Torture them, vile pigs.Nobody gets away with slapping Tsuki
>>47885102>3. Quick and Easy- have Itachi do it.And yeah, ask for genjutsu interrogation tips.
>>47885102>1. Torture them, vile pigs.Now...please tel me all you know....Laugh about what happened and smile, let them know we're fine and we got a little too into it. Make a joke to Sasuke about "see I didn't get all the fun, i'm probably the only person who got struck."
>>47885152>Wanting to learn genjutsuWithout specials eyes its useless
This will be remembered as the time Tsuki got taken out by non-chakra users.
>>47885168Screw that we gonna get us some lazer beam eyes!
>>47885102>3. Quick and Easy- have Itachi do it.most effective and least dirty method.
>>47885180ask Lee for some pointers
>>47885168It's not.Sharingans just boost it to super good levels.It's still good by itself.
>>47885180We just got slapped nigga. We got up less than a minute later. Christ so many overreactions in this thread.
>>47885209Shadowrunning is a huge mistake.
>>47885221It always is.
>>47885189>>47885209>Your head is spinning; everything seems a blur to you. You hear the sounds of combat all around you- and finally, you pick yourself up.>Seems you missed out on almost the entire fight.Sounds to me like Tsuki got whacked pretty good.
so... Tsuki's pretty much a glass cannon but all our best cannon shots are underwraps cause we don't want to show off our release yet... whats our next best offense? great fireball? Either way we should do something so we can take at least one hit.
>>47885195Prove it anon , all of the best techniques are really only usable if you have special eyes>>47885201Its not that useful though everyone is taught how to get out of them and most people know when their in one
>>47885209Like 5 seconds latter. Fuck Guy could have taken 12 out himself in that amount of time. We have him Fucking Itachi plus like 4 genin. And Sakura I guess.
>>47885232You do know that is because our highest roll was a fucking 30 right?
>>47885102>2. Standard interrogation process.Torture is unprofessional, also it tends to produce false information.Also it's unfashionable.
>>47885228It's also shit when some QMs (Cosgrove, Humble Storyteller, etc.) encourage that.
>>47885230The entire fight took like a minute. Come on its Guy and Itachi.The fact that a 12 year old girl took a grown man's hit to the face and walked off with mostly our pride wounded is a feat in itself.
>>47885238http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Boruto%20QuestProof positive genjutsu is fine even with out Sue eyes.
>>47885102>3. Quick and Easy- have Itachi do it.Smile and let eveyone know things are ok. Go thank Lee for "avenging" us, it was very kind and we owe him one.Have alough about getting a little too into the act, If Sauske makes a snarky comment slyly smile at him and remind him that by doing this he still has no idea what we can do where as we have now seen some of him.>Let him think twas all apart of the plan
>>47885230Or she was dazed for a few seconds. You forget who our company is.
>>47885260yeah, but still some sort of roll modifier would be nice to aim for yeah? to help mitigate future roll sets like this. Though I suspect it would take a lot of work to gain a +10 combat modifier
> Roll badly> Get stompedOh, yes, let's look at this single confrontation as a true test of all of our abilities.
>>47885325Or maybe we just got super unlucky and have still had hardly any real combat. Higher stamina is just gonna mean lower DCs relative to what we are fighting.
>>47885325The DC was adjusted. Its like a roll mod but you don't have to worry about typing the right modifiers.
if you want Tsuki to git gud at fightingthen work on getting swole and improving your fisticuffs
>>47885230>2. Standard interrogation process.We have Gai and Itachi.The fight duration would have been measured in single digit seconds.
>>47885390Thats what the puppet is for anon
>>47885403>not controlling the puppet through flexingdo you even lift?
still what has Tsuki done in combat so far, made shadow clones and... fired one or two arrows? and now this. it just feels a bit weird I guess.
Having Itachi-sensei do it.Writing.She just got her bell rung when she wasn't expecting it you goofballs. I think you guys forget just how fresh Tsuki and the girls are, still. This is literally the second time they've been in real combat
>>47885439How many combats have we been in?>>47885443Exactly
>>47885443you mean the protagonist isn't an unfeeling combat-machine receptacle for our actions? unacceptable, I am unfollowing this quest 100 times!!!!!1
>>47885462>>47885464I'm too used to having a slightly overpowered mc by about 10 threads in I guess. Thinking about it that is pretty common in the quests i've read, i'll just have to adjust and ignore my urge to powerlevel.
>>47885510This is Naruto still, we will have all the git gud time in the world later.
>>47885510We were shit in the Boruto quest for a long, long time
>>47885524true true, plus actually playing a glass cannon could be fun for a change of pace and it kinda fits the princess theme.
>>47885403Oh shit. You are serious aren't you?
>>47885535up until the tournament arc were we literally almost killed ourselves training I believe.
>>47885535boruto I archive binged so it didn't feel as long, but looking back yeah, takeshi did take a while to git gud, though it at least makes sense for him since he's the one normal ninja in a generation of ninja eugenic marysue's
>>47885576Laze's quest was supposed to be the same but we went full DBZ MC real quick as far as competency goes
>>47885656Also didn't need to roll so he almost always won.Cept for relationships ;^)
“Itachi-sensei, could I borrow you for a moment?” you say sweetly.Both him and Sasuke walk over, finishing whatever conversation they were having.“Nice one there, “Prodigy”.” Sasuke says with a smile on his face.“All a part of the plan, “Ko”.” you respond, smile only just touching saccharine levels. “I gotta keep you guessing. Can’t have the little brother knowing all of my secrets! Ohohohohoho!~”It did hurt, though. Danzo was right- never underestimate your opponents. “Itachi-sensei, could you interrogate this big one for me? Your special eyes will do it better than I ever could.” you say, choosing to ignore whatever Sasuke said in response. “Fine, it will be quicker that way. We will need to get moving towards the base eventually anyway.” he says.He walks over the mess of man, and prys his eyes open. You see his sharingan activate- the bright iris, contrasted by the black tomoe. It’s the first time you’ve ever seen a sharingan; you’re a little intimidated by it.After a matter of moments, Itachi-sensei breaks eye contact, and walks back over to you.“Their base is to the southwest- there are a series of caverns that actually lead under the border wall. Luckily, the big one was a platoon leader of sorts, so the route is very clear. Now, what should we do with the survivors?”1. Disable them, take their weapons.2. Kill the remainder, take their weapons.3. Disable them, destroy the weapons.4. Kill the remainder, destroy the weapons.>Write-in
>>47885816>4. Kill the remainder, destroy the weapons
>>47885816>1. Disable them, take their weapons.
>>47885816>4. Kill the remainder, destroy the weapons.She get the bloodlustJust like Columbus.She get the bloodlust.She get murderous on purpose.
>>47885816>2. Kill the remainder, take their weapons.Standard procedure for thugs, yeah? This type doesn't usually learn and would only harass others later. We were paid to stop these brigade and we should do the best job, we are of high quality afterall.Plus we should take the weapons for study and possible use.
>>47885816>2. Kill the remainder, take their weapons.
>>47885816>4. Kill the remainder, destroy the weapons.
>>47885816>2. Kill the remainder, take their weapons.WE need ot examine the weapons guys, Remember our Norihime Genius, We can instantly identify any Norihime invention.
>>47885816I guess> Disable them, destroy their weaponsWhy is this our decision? We're just some genin.
>>47885816>Kill the remainder, take their weapons.Take care of threats
>>47885816>3. Disable them, destroy the weapons.
>>47885816>2. Kill the remainder, take their weapons.SOP, right?
>>47885872He's asking your opinion, not asking for direction. Probably could've made that clearer.
>>47885816>>3. Disable them, destroy the weapons.After we restock or take a senbon launcher/arm thing for ourselves after all. Plus...if they are dads, we're disposing of evidence.
I can't really see anybody else in the team going for the "kill the bastards" route
>>47885965I can never figure out how it works in the Naruto universe. We are ninja, trained killers. But its also an idealistic shonen. Shit is confusing.
>>47885965Time to toughen then all up everyone has to kill one of them so no one locks up when they kill someone in battle
>>47885816>1. Disable them, take their weapons.It's one thing to kill people in battle, but prisoners should be judged by whatever passes for a court in this world. We're magic mercenaries not judges.
>>47885975It WAS idealistic shonen....Kill'em dead, take their shitWriting
>>47885989There is a pretty big difference between killing people in combat and killing unarmed prisoners.>>47885996But I guess we don't care.
>>47885995>We should take them to courtIts easier and quicker to just kill them which would probably be the end result in this world
>>47885996>>47886004Yep seems quite out of character. But whatever, tg wants sociopathic 12 year olds.
>>47886004>>47885989We already murdered people, back when we protected that one guy from those bandit dudes before Ebisu's Glorious Explosion Self-Sacrifice no Jutsu or whatever the fuck. No need to be edgy, as everyone seems to want to be.
>>47886028>>47886037> Implying our years of indoctrination at the academy haven't desensitised us to killing.Anons please.
>>47886006True, but it's a bit more about who has the authority to make that judgement.Anyways ship has sailed, so it's kinda pointless to argue this now.
>>47886037Its one thing to have someone die from a trap you made and another to kill them with your own hands>>47886054Its probably more or less a country won't care who kills bandits or criminals just that they die
>>47886037it just seems like a chore to deal with live prisoners was my thinking.
>>47886028>>47885996I think this quest is coming at a time where some anons are tired of being the normal hero so in order to be different (hipsters) they try to distance themselves away from morally 'right' options as far as possible. Probably why ROOT is so popular.I mean its fine if you don't want to be super idealistic Naruto, but you don't really have to go to the other extreme to prove it you know?
they want the 5th grader operator operating operational operations.Tsuki gets a nugget when?PTSD after Fetch Tora mission
>>47886051That's kinda the point I was making with >>47886037. We've already killed people so you can't use 'hurr hurr let's touhgin em upp lol' as an excuse. Don't see the reasoning behind the choice.
>>47886054I wouldn't be surprised if we didn't do it ourselves. Seems like a good secondary stage to teach your ninjas to kill: get them to make the decision for someone ELSE to kill them. Doesn't give them the opportunity to chicken out.
>>47886028I do my best to frame any choice to fit Tsuki's established character.Also, they ARE child soldiers. It's the reality of the setting.
>>47886080if they wanted different, they'd have not gone for a genjutsu background
>>47886072I can recall several instances off the top of my head where one of us either shot the dudes with our bow or threw shurikens into their vital spots, and I think the latter was Hinata.>>47886075I thought we were gonna dump them off at the town before we went to the hideout.>>47886080People want to live out their edge fantasies, happens in every naruto quest.
>>47886080I don't think its really hipster to decide to try a different type of character. I mean do you play the same alignment every time or some times do you decide to play something new?
>>47886106We haven't even used genjutsu yet, Anon.
>>47886131My biggest issue is that Tsuki, from all her interactions, seems like a good person.I just don't want to deal with later down the line, when we are stronger, and we have the option to save someone's life or a village that doesn't hinder or help us in any way and we decide not to do it because anons want to prove they aren't Naruto or something.
>>47886126How would the village hold the bandits? was there a prison? or is there some jutsu i'm not thinking of that would leave them bound for an indefinite period?
>>47886195In a house? Bound? It's not hard to see how a village full of people could hold a handful of injured, unarmed bandits.
>>47886195There was a prison, IIRC, one of the filler arcs had Mizuki breaking out of it and turning into an Orochimaru-brand (TM) furry.
>>47886221It did: http://naruto.wikia.com/wiki/Konoha_Strict_Correctional_Facility
>>47886221He turned into Tony the Tigerit wasn't greatCinnamon Toast Crunch is a better cereal
>>47886221er, I meant the town that was nearby, sorry for not specifying.still what about after the mission? it's a multi day trip back home, is there some sort of magister or other law authority we'd hand them off to?
>>47886275Life is the best cereal
The mission was “search and destroy”, after all…“I’d like it if we took the weapons, sensei. I wish to look at them. As for the men- how many are alive?” you inquire.“Probably about half. Guy has problems holding back sometimes… or is the enemy weak enough that he can’t? Hard to say.” He says, rather absentmindedly.“Well, we can’t just leave them be, can we?” you ask. Itachi sighs.“No, we cannot. The mission requested the destruction of the bandits harassing the town, and the only way to be sure of that is death. They would do the same to us, and already have to the townsfolk.” He says, although he obviously isn’t fond of this outcome.“Guy, it’s probably time.” Itachi says, summoning Guy to his side.“Ah, is it? A shame, but a necessary blot upon the sunshine of youth. If you don’t mind, I’m going to scout ahead.” Guy says, his characteristic smile leaving his face. Before he leaves, he walks over and says something to Lee- although you cannot tell what it was.Itachi gathers you all to him, and begins to speak.“Genin. The world we live in is a brutal one, as some of you know. Though the wars of our fathers have passed, we are shinobi. There may come a time in the near future where you must kill to survive; and one day, you may be assigned a mission to assassinate a specific target. Such is the reality of our duties.” he says, somewhat dispassionately. “I’m going to ask you now to take the life of our prisoners; there are six of them, and six of you. It may seem a bit cold, I know. But these men active made a choice to walk along this path- and this is it’s result. If any of you wish to back out now- to not take a life- you will not be reprimanded or cast out. But you will no longer be shinobi. This too, is a test."
Everyone moves to an indicated prisoner, some slower than others. You can tell Lee and Hinata are having a particularly hard time with this- this is probably not what they were expecting.You find yourself in front of the big man from before. He’s barely breathing- seems Itachi-sensei’s sharingan takes a lot out of it’s victim. You unsheathe a kunai….You know what Danzo would say. Complete the mission.You know what Father would say. Never pursue anything halfheartedly.Mother was a shinobi of her village.You…1. Fulfill your duty.2. Back down.
>>47886296Who ever kills the most gets a juice box!
>>47886303>1. Fulfill your duty.
>>47886303>1. Fulfill your duty.At least he won't feel it with how out of it he is.
>>47886303>1. Fulfill your duty.Use your War Fan, slit the throat Blood Moon
>>47886303>1. Fulfill your duty.With a smile on our face, For the good of the village.
>>47886303>1. Fulfill your duty.But at least make it quick for the person.
>>47886303>1. Fulfill your duty.No hesitation, look them in he eye as we do it.
>>47886330no smile...its unprofessional.
>>47886303Make it fast. Whisper a sincere prayer and apology. We know our duty, but we are not heartless
>>47886303>1. Fulfill your duty.just a blank face, all business
>>47886330>Smiling as you kill someone.Nah, rather not be a psychopath thanks.
>>47886336Pretty sure he's knocked out cold
>>47886365Nah fuck that, Quit trying to white knight.
Completing the mission.Loading....
>>47886365Why should we even give a shit about these murdering bandits
>>47886303>1. Fulfill your duty.Jab it in the base of the spine, separating the spinal cord from the brain, unplugging. Effective as a beheading, but much less pain.
>>47886425Becuase some anons want to just complete the mission while others want to not kill I guess.
>>47886365Why would we care about bandits who have done awful things? Quit being a retarded moral faggot.
>>47886440No I meant why would we ever care enough to say a prayer for them
>>47886452because Tsuki was raised to have manners gosh darn it!
>>47886442>moral faggotsHonestly anyone using 'moralfags' or 'edgelords' in an argument makes me think you are just shitposting.
>>47886457Do you pray whenever you step on a bug?
>>47886464Really playing it up eh?
>>47886457ultra tech inventor dad with a dead wife doesn't usually translate to teaching their kid prayer in these kind's of settings.
>>47886469Gotta stay in character anon
>>47886421>>47886425>>47886442It's not about compassion or carrying. It's about decency. We don't need to have a total disregard for life to be prepared to take it. It's less for him, and more for us. same reason we give death row inmates a last meal and a prayer.
>>47886495Neither being a cold hearted bitch who thinks of people as bugs nor being a bleeding heart is in character anon.
>>47886516More the character im playing right now
>>47886495>>47886516There was some discussion of Tsuki being an utter bitch to anyone that wasn't a friend of hers as a character trait, but that's for social interaction not mission protocol, when it comes to missions Tsuki's been all business. either way, lets see what wargle does with our decision.
>>47886531So you change how the character acts on a whim, regardless of how the character has acted in the past?Thats the path to schizophrenic MCs famalam.
>>47886554ExactlyThis>>47886331Is the most in character response>>47886330>>47886365These two are not.
Considering we are Dano's pet project I think Tsuki would just clean kill the guy, no malice or smile, just "matter of factly" does her job. No prayers or anything, just a simple clean kill. We wouldn't give a fuck anyways we've killed before.
I can't wait till Itachi lets us pick what toppings the post mission pizza will have
>>47886601We should offer fruit on the side130 ryo.
>>47886303>1. Fulfill your duty.Finger on the forehead quick release of S.C. straight through. No pain. No fuss. No blood.
>>47886601Shitty fruit, shame, and pride. It's like the ninja version of a Meatlovers.
In one fluid motion, you slice the man’s throat. You wipe the kunai down, and sheathe it. Don’t want to be wasteful. May he find peace the in the next life. Not looking down, you quickly turn to the others. All of them seem to have fulfilled their duty as well- even Lee and Hinata. You’re glad. Glad you can continue to be shinobi together.Itachi gathers you all once more. “Thank you, everyone. It is important to know the value of a human life- one day, one of you may be sitting in the Hokage’s place, ordering the death of one man, or thousands. You will have to understand that you are sending your villagers out to face death, time and time again. We are shinobi. We must know that our teammates will not falter in the face of adversity- this allows us to truly rely upon one another.”Itachi exhales heavily. “Not particularly fond of it myself, but it is our duty. Guy should be returning shortly….”Sure enough, within minutes, Guy has returned, having broken into a brisk sweat. “I’ve found it, exactly where you indicated. There are some guards out front, but not many.”While they continue the discussion, you begin to gather up the mechanized weapons. Quickly, you look over the weapon. KL-225D. Standard chamber. An old model, but there’s no mistaking the small crown etched into the metal. Norihime Branded and Manufactured. Not that you think those bandits knew it. They didn’t react to your name in any visible way. You finish gathering them up and placing them in the carriage. All older Norihime models. The team seems to be ready to head out to the base- you have one final decision to make. Do you take one of the KL-225D launchers?1. Yes. It will be useful, and your family made it, after all.2. No, you don’t need it. Mechanized weaponry doesn’t interest you.
>>47886601Hey Wargle, If you ever decide to do little short stories like Laze does, this should be one of them.
>>47886689>1. Yes. It will be useful, and your family made it, after all.better to have and not need than need and not have
>>47886689>1. Yes. It will be useful, and your family made it, after all.
>>47886689>1. Yes. It will be useful, and your family made it, after all.Tool is a tool. Could be useful.
>>47886689>1. Yes. It will be useful, and your family made it, after all.Stick it into a bunny puppet when we get home.
>>47886689>1. Yes. It will be useful, and your family made it, after all.I don't want to have it be a major part of our fighting style but we can keep them
>>47886694Those ideas are mounting up quickly. I wouldn't mind writing gaiden chapters when i have a little more time on my hands.
>>47886689>1. Yes. It will be useful, and your family made it, after all.Tools don't chose who use them. But we may yet save these from indignity. #NorihimeLife
>>47886601Pineapple and Black Olive
>>47886728Nah. Make improvements on it.Customize it.Make it ours.
Tsuki's got a gun~Writing.
>>47886601Four cheese pizza with chicken and bacon on it
Yo drawfag, could you do pic related with Tsuki?
>>47886950Dude, The fuck.
>>47886769what do we name it? Something sickeningly cute? Usagi chan?
>>47887058Icky Pooey Sharp'n'Shooty?
>>47886689Fuck yes we're taking it.>>47887058It's a basic, generic, mass-produced "gun." We don't name her until we've upgraded the fuck out of her. And then we name her Ebisumari so our first sensei can still watch over us from beyond the grave.

>>47887156>'Playing' literal, figurative, and metaphorical trash
>>47887058>>47887102>>47887103You want to name the out of date gun?
You quickly choose one out of the ones you have gathered. Quickly you look over it- it seems serviceable. You load it up with the remainder of the compact kunai- 20 shots. More than enough.You head back to the group, and the eight of you starting running in the direction of the hideout. Within thirty minutes, you can see it- a hill with a barely visible crevice, heading down into the darkness. Hinata activates her Byakugan, and begins to scan the area.“6 outside, sensei. At least 10 in the lower chambers. It’s tougher to make out their numbers closer to the wall.” she says, panning her vision across the area.“Sounds about right. Team 7, with me. Team Guy, follow your sensei. We’re gonna split up here and take each side.The four of you split off, and head off to the right, sneaking through the underbrush. As you approach, you can see them- three armed guards, each with another launcher.“Alright, you three. Take them out. I’ll be here to back you up if you need it.” Itachi orders.You, Nori and Hinata break off and each pick a target. Yours is leaning up against a wall- doesn’t seem particularly alert.You…1. Use a jutsu to take him out.2. Use a thrown weapon to take him out.3. Get close and kill him swiftly and silently.4. Use your launcher to take him out.>Write-in
>>47887103Nah thats a S class ninjutsu we use post time skip. While we kick it on the moon. It is powered by ~OHOHOHOHOs
>>47887183>3. Get close and kill him swiftly and silently.Cut his throat Quietly.
>>47887183>1. Use a jutsu to take him out.the fireball
>>47887183>2. Use a thrown weapon to take him out.Fan, kunai whatever works
>>47887183>2. Use a thrown weapon to take him out.
>>47887183>Shoot him with you bow
>>47887183>3. Get close and kill him swiftly and silently.
>>47887183>3. Get close and kill him swiftly and silently.Slice him open with the warfan
>>478871832. Use a thrown weapon to shank the fucker from a distance. Then take his gun too. We Rambo now.
>>47887176once we upgrade the hell out of it and make it a custom monstrosity, it doesn't need one now though.
>>47887183>3. Get close and kill him swiftly and silently.Practice makes perfect.
>>47887183>4. Use your launcher to take him out.
>>47887183>2. Use a thrown weapon to take him out.jutsu's a bit too noisy since i'm pretty sure our main offensive jutsu is a huge fireball
>>47887183>>47887195This>>47887219Or we could create our own weapon and not be lugging around this big old out of date thing
>>47887173>something truly independent>part of our cultural historyI bet money you have Undertale, Risk of Rain, or Darkest Dungeon installed right now
>>47887219Still better than a puppet so I like it.
>>47887183>3. Get close and kill him swiftly and silentlWe're a fucking ninja, don't raise the alarm needlessly.
>>47887236You'd actually lose on all three accounts.I have played Undermeme around when it came out though. Never played the other two.

>>47887232we'll have to see what resources we have and whether upgrading the old one or making a whole new build is more efficient, something to discuss with dad I suppose
>>47887183>4. Use your launcher to take him out.Show them a tool is only as good as the person using it.
>>47887183>3. Get close and kill him swiftly and silently.Make Danzo proud
>>47887254So do you just like nothing? Is everything just shit? Does it turn to ash the second it touches your mouth? Its not like I don't know the feeling.

Quick question, do these launchers make loud noises when they fire? I mean, it probably does, since its the nature of a gun, but if so, the next weapon we make should be modified for subtlety and subterfuge.
>>47887355good rollgood dubs
>>47887355hmm not bad, not bad at all.
>>47887371>that filename>implying Tsunade drinks coffee>implying she doesn't start her mornings with a nice big bottle of ALL THE FUCKING ALCOHOL
>>47887362Yep, these ones are rather noisy. But they're clunky and nearly as old as you are.Players can designs all sorts of weaponry.
>>47887392Ok all in favor of a wrist mounted Senbon SMG?
>>47887409Yes fucking thank you I've been trying to get this idea going for a couple threads now, good to know people agree.
>>47887409I can dig it if it can collapse into a protective bracer for hand-to-hand engagements.
>>47887423>>47887422I've got some designs ready to draw up....I got so many ideas for collapsible gear that could wreak people
>>47887423We could probably finagle something like that.
>>47887409>>47887422>>47887423>>47887447>>47887451So. Much. Better. Than. Puppets.
Stealth kill!DC:8Pass!Probably gonna stick to d20 rolls for "easier" rolls. Unless everyone wants d100. I don't mind either way.
>>47887392>>47887409>>47887447Maybe a big, thick shield? Its middle can extend outward and carve people up, like the Whirligig Saw from Bloodborne.
>>47887309Tone and implications. Specifics cans say alot about what is inside. Or maybe you just really dislike something for its discrete flaws. Could go either way and alot of contextual information is lost in this format.Just please tell me you have a waifu at least to establish a common ground we can work from.
>>47887485Or just use d100s but with low DCs.Or do Roll Under instead of Roll Higher
Rolled 19, 14, 14, 5, 2 = 54 (5d20)>>47887485Thing about d20s? Especially in best of 5?Crits and critfails out the ass.I'd just adjust your DCs for d100s.Like your DC 8 there? DC 40 on a d100.
>>47887485How about d100s where we can the first roll or we can roll again till the max number (ie 3) and then take the average>>47887497Anon alot of people aren't gonna get that pictureI appreciate it though
>>47887485I'd prefer the d100's.
>>47887507d20s are too crit heavy imho
>>47887517>then take the averageNoooooooooooo. Never do that.
>>47887533Its more fun if we have a greater chance to fail since the story will have more ups and downs
just an idea of poison claws that can "extentable" and a compact senbon smg
>>47887524>>47887517>>47887528>>47887507>>47887499We can stick to d100's that's perfectly fine.I'm probably not gonna lower the DCs by much if at all; you guys need to exercise those dice demons something fierce.
>>47887485D20s are alright with me, more fun to see crits happen in them
>>47887577But if we roll high, we'll have people going "don't roll, we have a high roll already", which is the bane of average-based roll systems on 4chan.
>>47887533Taking the average means that all of our rolls will be averages. Which means that Tsuki herself will be average. And that's not an option, dammit.>>47887579I do like the Senbon SMG idea using the scroll as an ammo belt.
>>47887577Taking average doesn't make you fail. It doesn't make you pass.It makes everything we do mediocre. That isn't raising the difficulty, that's making everything lackluster.
>>47887485D100s and knock it down to 3. Or look into dice pools. Which would work damn well with the stat system I think. 1 in something uses a 1d6, success on 4,5,6; stat 3 uses 3d6, same success range, ect. The challenge of the task determining the number of successes needed for it.
>>47887579A "Z Frame" deploy able claw on one arm and Senbon smg in the other...I like it.
>>47887597Or use d10s and have it be a success on an 8+.
>People want Tsuki to use ninja tools when her strength and Tai are the worst>Not trying to use our natural skillsEven the puppetfags had a point that Tsuki had good stats for it
>>47887579>>47887601And hey if we end up not using it we can just sell the design. It's a win win really
>>47887618We could always invest in making our lower skills better. We don't have to min/max until we're older
>>47887627Do you even WoD? Or L5R? Or Aberrant?
>>47887640Tabletop =/= QuestsThey don't convert as well as you'd think.
>>47887629But why focus on evening out when we can make use of what we have now and only make it better as we grow older
>>47887647Because the lower the stat, the easier it is to raise, the higher the stat the harder it is to raise.
>>47887655But still people want to have her focus on a design that uses her two worst skills that will take longer to level up overall then using what were good at now which will take less time to level up
>>47887655Yes, but if we aren't going to use it then we're still getting a worse cost benefit despite being cheaper, and getting it to the point where it would be worth using would require enough investment that it would totally go against cost benefit as well.
>>47887681Not really? I want her to focus on the senbon-SMG and other mid-to-long range tricks.
>>47887681>>47887709well I would at least like to get to the point where we can use those twin lightning swords well. Those weapons are rad
>>47887720Ya know what would really help with them? Learning some Lightning Jutsu.
>>47887711It would make more sense to make the Senbon Launcher for Hinata, so she can use it with her Special Eyes to target chakra points from a distance. Hell, we should build kick-ass gadgets for all of our friends.
>>47887711But senbon are useless anon they don't do much damage unless you use poisons, most people are able to dodge or block them, and they aren't as good at long range>>47887720Honestly we don't have to be that good with actually fighting with them, their best quality is that they allow you to use high level lightning techniques with little to no chakra
>>47887726I had a conversation with wargle about that, there's not a lot of lightning jutsu out there
Remember your academy training Tsuki….You approach the man from the side. There’s another man not twenty paces out- you see Sakura’s telltale pink hair appear for brief second, and it’s in the moment you strike. Your mark turns his head as his compatriot is pulled into the underbrush- and then to rush to his exposed side. You raise the kunai and make the same practiced cut across the throat, then pull him back into your hiding place. Within moment, the outside is clear of hostiles. All eight of you convene by the entrance. “Good work everyone. Guy is going to remain here to guard the entrance, while the 7 of us descend into the base. I’ll take point; Nori, Hinata, stay close to me. The rest of you, follow behind in a loose formation.” Itachi instructs.Which Guy remaining behind, your group proceeds into the cavern tunnel. The battles in the lower chambers are quick and decisive; all the men seem to be alone or in very small groups. These men are also only armed with conventional bladed weaponry- no kunai launchers. They put up very little fight.Eventually, Hinata calls for the group to stop.“There’s a split in the path- one continues forward under the wall, opening into a large area with a bridge. Most of their forces are concentrated there: 15, in total. The other goes down, deep below the wall, and eventually ends in another open chamber. There’s only 3 men down there, but seems to be able to utilize chakra… sort of. It isn’t arrayed like a shinobi’s would be. There’s also a woman, as well.” She reports.“15 is a large number- more than we fought outside. We also don’t know if they have any fortifications, traps or other weapons.” Itachi says. “Although the chakra user is worrying as well. The reports said they had no shinobi among their number- though there are other ways to utilize chakra. The woman is most likely our missing village mayor.”
>>47887736Being handy with a sword is never a bad skill. You won't always be able to avoid cqc
Itachi seems to be planning something…You…1. Recommend everyone stay together, and tackle one group at a time. (Will lead to vote on direction to head.)2. Split up to ensure surprise, and potential safety of the mayor. (Will lead to vote on how to split up.)
What's that? I woke up early enough to see the end of the thread?
>>47887738He could always just make his own?>>47887751>1. Recommend everyone stay together, and tackle one group at a time. (Will lead to vote on direction to head.)
>>47887745In Naruto not so much, if you get good with the substitution jutsu you shouldn't ever really have that issue>2. Split up to ensure surprise, and potential safety of the mayor. (Will lead to vote on how to split up.)
>>47887738Guess we gotta create our own...I've actually got a theory for that.1) Learn Pheonix Flower2) Using our Clan trait apply lightning to it to learn how to channel Lightning into weapons thus creating Lightning Nature ninja stars3/Bonus) Stellar Chakra Pheonix Flower
>>47887751>2. Split up to ensure surprise, and potential safety of the mayor.
>>47887751We have two teams - Team Gai should go to the civilians, Team Itachi can take out the Cursed Seal Users because come on we all know that's what they're going to be.As for IC reasons: our team is a lot heavier on anti-shinobi firepower, given the fact that we have both Nori and a Hyuga (Gentle Fist really shines against chakra-users), whereas Strong Fist Taijutsu is equally effective against non-chakra-users.
>>47887759My fucking god anon
>>47887760Heres the list of techniques we can't use all of them but their are plenty we can usehttp://naruto.wikia.com/wiki/Special:BrowseData/Jutsu?Chakra_Nature=Lightning_Release
Not a puppetfag, I don't care that much one way or the other, but I did have a thought that supports puppet use.Puppets are expensive. Money's the main limiting factor as in Boruto Quest.Tsuki's loaded and her family has the means to produce or upgrade puppets relatively cheaply.Puppet wouldn't be a bad choice, but in the end it's up to group consensus and player preference.
>>47887751>3Send Itachi and A Tsuki Clone with Nori to deal with the chakra user, everyone else ambush and kill the 15. This way is clone pops we know how Itachi is doing and if it pops early then Itachi knows we have an issue.
>>47887786That has literally no bearing on why they're shit anon. None
>>47887784But it would still be a good idea to learn a few though yeah?
Rolled 4, 6, 6, 4 = 20 (4d6)>>47887627Same difference if you adjust the range to account for probability curves. Factors that add dice to the pool are good to great depending on how many it adds and how often it can be applied while something that adds a base value to any value rolled is either awesome or horrible depending on if it is a + or a -.Say Tsuki uses Fire Release: Fire Dragon Bullet, a ninjutsu, which she has a 3 in, and is "easy" technique she has practiced: she gets to add 1/2 of her hand signs value to the roll, rounded down for a +1d6, a 4d6 total pool. A mook might be an auto success unless there were outside factors, a random genin might be 1 success, a chuunin might need 3, and a jounin might need 4 for it to succeed in damaging/ affecting. But if she added Stellar chakra to it, you could give a +1 to all rolled values at the expense of say 1 out of 3 S.C. charges she had for an encounter.
>>47887801Of course we have three releases lets make use of them
Leaving up for a bit longer, otherwise calling it for splitting up.
>>47887797Everything is shit, anon.Real princesses take shit and make it better.
>>47887802In this case her technique went off quickly and flawlessly, even a jounin would take some damage from it. A chunin might be wounded, a genin would be on their last legs and a mook would be toast; the degree of success might even mean his friends got the same or they suffered a malus on their next action.
>>47887759I admire your dedication
Alright, calling it for splitting up. Already Saw one anon having a suggestion for team comps-Obviously sending Itachi is a huge thumb one the scale for either encounter.
>>47887923Send us, Itachi and Lee to fight the chakra users and the rest go fight the 15
>>47887960Why Lee? Hinata would be better.
>>47887985Lee is better at Taijutsu and will be more useful then Hinata whose still is probably shaken up from killing someone
Shit, I killed all the anons.Considering ending now and firing up the ending portions of this mission next time.
>>47888041Just waiting for you to finish writing.
>>47888041roll call maybe? im fine with whatever.
>>47888041I'm still around.
>>47888041still here write slave, get back in your chains
>>47888041I'm still here, keep going.Please.
Just bracing for us to have to roll poorly
Well shit you dorks I'm asking you to decide where ya want your teams to go!DISCUSS
>>47888091I dunno.>>47887960I guess that.
>>47888041Still here anon.
>Team DownstairsItachi, Nori and Tsuki Clone>Team Cluster Truck (the goons)Everyone else
>>47888091us itachi and either sasuke or lee heasd to the group of three, a clone of us and everyone else to the 15, hand the clone or new nifty launcher.
>>47888091EBISU FOR ANTS
>>47888105Anon what happened last time we sent a clone to help our sensei
>>47887960>>47888107I'm mostly fine with this, can we add the clone and launcher bit from the second one to it?
Looks like Itachi, Lee and Tsuki, with everyone else and a clone fighting the others.Writing.
Ok I vote for Us, Itachi and Sauke to fight downstairs....lets get our street cred back.
So....How we gonna get sasuke to take us seriously again...he still think we are holding out or bluffing?
>>47888215When we kick his ass in the exams
>>47888221For which, just as a reminder, we WILL need to shore up our physical skills. Ninja in this setting get into close quarters all the damn time, having that be your weakness is pretty scrubby.
>>47888236don't worry anon all our stats will hit atleast 2 by that time
You decide on a Team of Yourself, Lee and Itachi-sensei to go to the Chakra user, with Sakura, Hinata, Nori, Sasuke, and a clone of yourself with another kunai launcher. You instruct your teammates and your clone to pop the clone immediately if they need help.With a wish of luck between you all, you split up. You feel confident that you can keep the clone up as long as you don’t take a hit- hopefully it’s enough. The path downwards is long and winding- the temperature begins to drop as you descend, with the electric lights on the walls offering no heat.Eventually the passage even out, and on the far end of the passageway, you see an metal door, guarded by two men. Two men, clad head to toe in odd armor, and armed with Katana.Itachi stops you both. “Hold on. If these men are what I think they are… this might be more difficult than anticipated. Lee, avoid those swords. Tsuki, don’t bother with the launcher. Ninjutsu is going to be the only way to take these two down with what we have now.”He takes a deep breath.“Lee, I’m going to need you to distract them. For just a moment.”“Yes! I can do that, at least! I’ll show you both what Guy-sensei has taught me!” Lee says, saluting.“Tsuki, prepare the Great Fireball I taught you. They’ll be coming in hot, Lee, so try to get behind them to block the flames. Ok?” Itachi orders.“Yes!” Lee answers.You…1. Agree to his plan2. Disagree, propose something else. (What?)
>>478882491. Agree to his plan.
>>47888249>1. Agree to his plan
>>478882491. Agree to his plan(but use the stellar fireball variant)
>>478882492. Disagree, propose something else. (What?)Same plan for us just have itachi get behind them and then hit them with a fireball from the back while we do one from the front
>>47888249>1. Agree to his planSensei knows best...
>>47888249>1. Agree to his planfire in the hole
>>47888275eh... were trying to keep tha secret, but it is only itachi and lee... itachi is one of our teachers so it seems ok for him to know and we can probably make lee swear not to tell anyone and he'd actually do it but still...
>>47888275nope because1) That wastes our big reveal2) your endangering Lee
>>47888249>1. Agree to his planFireball should be enough to cook them in their armor. Also I trust the black OPs commander's plan
>>47888275>>47888296You both are fucking retarded as all hell.
>>47888275>>47888296Secret Second Dad is disappoint.
>>47888296...no...just no. Stallar is ROOT only and Danzo is the only one whom may know
>>47888299Mostly both of these. I don't particularly see value in keeping it a secret, as being honest about our abilities lets our team plan better around them, but a plan where Itachi is already preparing for the risk of friendly fire isn't the time to use it.If this fails I'd be game for a Stellar fireball to turn up the heat though.
Agreeing with Sensei's plan.Writing. Might be the last one of the night. Powering down and 4chan's giving me shit right now as well.
>>47888345Good, Tired as shit staying up this late.
>>47888333good trips.I got an idea already for improving the kunai nugget.So it's noisy because it's essentially a gun? Replace gunpowder by chakra as the energy source. In fact, make it more of a coil gun then.(if it's noisy becaus eof springwork, just improve that shit by tinkering). It's then become a better bow.Tactical genin operations.
>>47888360I was thinking why not make it somewhat reusable? we could attach chakra conducting steel wire to the kunai to add elemental shenanigans and let us re spool the thing maybe at the cost of fewer kunai launched.
>>47888388we know tenten and have dosh, the munitions are compact and kunais come from the hammerspace to begin with, if you really want something to spool back why not make a grapple gun?
>>47888388I wouldn't mind a weapon that fires wire attached to kunai. I envision that it doesn't recollect the ammo, but rather, it's very purpose to lay down wire everywhere to combo with Lightning or Stellar release. Alternatively, you could simply bind an opponent with it.
>>47888455or string up explosive tags.
“Yes, Sensei!” you answer.“Good. Lee! Now!” Itachi commands, and Lee rushes towards the two men.As he runs, you see the men take notice- They begin to prepare for Lee’s approach, and their weapons ignite with a strange blue aura. “Samurai.” Itachi says under his breath.Lee, to his credit, doesn’t stop, running headlong into the two men. Right before he crashes into them, he hits the floor, sliding just under their chakra-infused blades. As the men begin to turn, Itachi nods to you. You both breathe in deeply, and begin executing the symbols for the Great Fireball technique. Itachi-sensei’s is done faster and is a little bigger than yours, but no matter. As the men finish turning you release them- roaring down the corridor, slamming into the backs of the two Samurai. You can see Lee ducking, trying to avoid the fire. You hear muffled screams of agony as the fireballs push against the men’s armor, turning it bright red. Eventually the fireballs dissipate, and the hall reeks of a unpleasant smell- cooked flesh, you would guess. The two men’s armor seems intact, but still bright red hot. You and Itachi leap over the corpses of the samurai joining Lee on the other side.“That was awesome! Very hot, but still very cool!” Lee says with no small amount of awe in his voice. Itachi, however, seems entirely focused on the fight ahead. You consider taking one of the swords, but you figure you’ll have time to get them on the way out.
>>47888494We're looting the gauntlets and greaves too on our way back out.
Itachi pushes through the double doors, into a large room- filled with bunks, crates, and food, with a desk on the far end, covered in maps. A man sits at the desk, with similar armor as the others- although his armor has a horned helmet, and a fine blue sheen you recognize from somewhere…You also see the mayor, bound and gagged, over to one side. The man stands up, donning his helmet, and draws two blades, which immediately flicker awake with chakra.“So, they finally sent someone after me? Near-sighted fools! Very well then, intruders, have at thee!”You have no idea what he’s talking about.However, as this is happening, a familiar sensation pricks the back your mind.The feeling of your clone’s chakra returning….
.......and we're gonna end it there, because chrome's acting up, and I'm tired. Also, I'm hitting the gym in the morning. Excitement.@WargleQM for Norihime Branded GoodsNext thread will probably be tomorrow, but don't expect it to be nearly as long as today's.POST THREAD BEGINS NOW.
>>47888550thanks for runninggo to bed
>>47888550Good clone memories or bad clone memories?
>>47888550So wow. Tinned food to cook, great. It's actually nice to see some Samurai about. Thanks for running Wargle and see you tommrow
>>47888536>a fine blue sheen you recognize from somewhereAw shit dude's got chakra metal armor. Change of plans. We loot HIS boots and gauntlets.>>47888559Cliffhanger clone memories
>>47888550Not really a complaint, but did we really just kill those mooks without rolling? so no rolling for mooks?
>>47888614>but did we really just kill those mooks without rolling?Yes.
>>47888614Yeah, you did. Partially because Itachi would've killed them regardless, and partially because I had to refresh the page 10 times between each post.
>>47888139>dat difanon, what did I just watch?
