Shinobi Quest #17This 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 her team began the process of taking out the bandits plaguing Reisui Village and the Land of Hot Springs at large. After a somewhat embarrassing first showing in combat, Tsuki reaffirmed to herself her commitment to be shinobi. The teams split up, and began systematically dismantling the bandit hideout. Guy-sensei was left behind to guard the entrance from any returning patrols, and the remainder headed in. Halfway through the complex, the team split up to handle two groups of enemies, with Sasuke, Nori, Hinata, Sakura, and a Tsuki clone armed with a kunai launcher headed towards the larger group, and Itachi-sensei, Lee, and Tsuki herself heading towards the smaller group of three enemies- ones that had chakra signatures.Itachi’s fears were confirmed when the small group reached the lowest layers of the hideout- Samurai. By using a diversion tactic with Lee, Tsuki and Itachi were able to take out the samurai with a student-teacher double Great Fireball Technique. Proceeding inside the last room, they found both Reisui’s captured mayor, and the leader of the bandits- a horned samurai in blue-tinted armor, wielding two chakra-infused katana....
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….
Wargle a couple anons on Akuns useless ninja quest chat were calling your quest edgy for what happened last time. Any thoughts? Shitpost them to hell?
>>47901830Who gives a fuck?
>>47901830Fuck'em anons gonna bitch they aint OP as hell they can bugger off we don't need'em
>>47901830What are we grade schoolers who gives a shit what they think
The memories play back in your mind-The sound of heavy machinery roars in the distance- and the sound of heavy launcher fire. You look around to see a few corpses about- all enemies, thankfully. On the far side of the room, separated by a bridge, are 10 bandits, 9 of which wielding kunai launchers, keeping suppressing fire on your group. One of them is behind some sort of bunker, with a larger, floor mounted launcher of some kind- the source of all the noise.It begins to become louder, firing off hundreds of shots, possibly through some sort of feeding mechanism you cannot see. Your group of five is pinned down- you volunteer to go back for either Itachi or Guy, and the others nod. Waiting for a lull within the fire, you bolt- only for the roar to come again. You try to outrun it, but cannot seem to manage. Your clone’s last thought is being pierced by several small launcher-sized kunai.“The others are in trouble, sensei.” you report, fighting off the memory daze.“Tch. Well, we cannot just leave this one untended. How bad is it?” he responds while eying the enemy leader.“Bad enough that they are trapped if we don’t help them.” you utter.You see him close his eyes and think….You...1. Volunteer to head back to get Guy, leaving Itachi and Lee to fight the Samurai.2. Suggest Lee go get Guy, leaving you and Itachi to fight the Samurai.3. Suggest Itachi go save the group, leaving you and Lee to fight the Samurai.>Write-in/Other
>>479019501. Volunteer to head back to get Guy, leaving Itachi and Lee to fight the Samurai.Lee doesn't use chakra, and he's fast. So he'd be relatively okay
>>47901950>1. Volunteer to head back to get Guy, leaving Itachi and Lee to fight the Samurai.
>>47901950>2. Suggest Lee go get Guy, leaving you and Itachi to fight the Samurai.
>>47901950>3 Suggest Itachi go save the group, leaving you and Lee to fight the Samurai.Itachi is the big gun, and we can at least hold thie guy off at worst. Also, us and Lee are a good team. We can back each other up.
>>47901950>2. Suggest Lee go get Guy, leaving you and Itachi to fight the Samurai.Lee is fastest
>>47901830lol I really couldn't care less. If exactly one thread is enough for it to be edgy, crown me shadow the edgehog.Naruto is at it's best when it deals with political intrigue and murder and assassination happen all the time in a world like this- at the end of the day, they are child soldiers being trained to be elite warriors.At least, that's what I think. If you want straight shonen with no violence and the ability for everything to end in sunshine and rainbows, this quest probably isn't for you. I like to think I keep the darker moments contrasted with the lighter ones and humor.
>>47901950>OtherItachi send a clone of some kind to ask Guy to back up the others, it's fucking Itachi he'll be fine.That way the three of us can deal with this guy.
>>47902031>>47901950Wait a moment, yeah. This
>>47902031Changing to this.
>>47902030It would be interesting and promising if you do address and have scenes that focus on the fact that Tsuki is a near teenager who has been trained to kill people, and has done it at least twice.
>>47902031This is good actually, I mean there's no way itachi doesn't know some kind of clone jutsu.
Sounds like people want Itachi to send a clone of some kind to get guy- this is doable. Writing.
“Sensei, can you send one of your clones to get Guy?” you ask.“Yes, although crow-clones, unlike shadow clones, don’t really have a mind of their own. I’ll need to have it guide him. It shouldn’t provide too much of a distraction…” he answers.He quickly throws up the signs for what you assume is his crow clone technique- his shadow quickly elongates, and from it, a large black bird bursts forth. The bird wastes no time, flying up the passageway, back towards the fork.“If you little shinobi are done with your meeting, I suggest we get back to matters at hand.” the samurai’s raspy, somewhat tinny voice coming through his rebreather. “You face Yojimbo! Former Kenin of the Land of Iron! You dishonorable shinobi will fall to my blades!”He assumes a battle stance you aren’t familiar with- and you can tell Itachi is focused on guiding the clone, at least subconsciously.You…1. Wait for Itachi’s direction.2. Spread out, to surround him!3. Try to distract him with ranged weapons (Bow, Kunai, Launcher)4. Use a Jutsu to get his attention! (Choose a technique!)
>>47902414>3. Try to distract him with ranged weaponsLauncher
>>47902414>4. Use a Jutsu to get his attention!Time for Phoenix Flower jutsu to get him in the position for Lee to attack
>>47902414>1. Wait for Itachi’s direction.
>>47902414>3. Try to distract him with ranged weapons (Bow)Bow might actually have more piercing capability that the launcher
>>47902447Whoops Fire Dragon Bullet not Phoenix Flower
>>479024143. Try to distract him with ranged weapons (Bow,
>>47902414>3. Try to distract him with ranged weapons (Bow, Kunai, Launcher)Bow, aim for the eye's or armpits.
>>47902414>3. Try to distract him with ranged weaponsHurl a handful of Kunai and while they fly through the air launch "Fire Dragon Bullets" Keep him suppressed or on the defensive.Lee engage only when you see an opening.
>>47902447>>47902545These, what the fuck are you faggots doing just sitting there waiting, Itachi is busy and unless he says do something directly we do things ourselves.
>>47902447>>47902414This but I assume you mean Dragon Bullets.
>>47902414>3. Try to distract him with ranged weapons (Bow, Kunai, Launcher)Use the launcher with Fire Dragon Bullet to create flaming kunai.
>>47902585Don't work that way homie. Both the jutsu and launcher need two hands to operate.
Distraction no Jutsu!Writing.
Seriously why are people voting 1? If Itachi wants us to do something he will say, right now he's steering a clone. Do the obvious and get to work not sit there like a fool and wait for sensei to order us around, use your fucking heads.
>>47902621Then either do the hand signs first and quickly grab the launcher or have a shadow clone shoot the launcher.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_9CeXhZaxVwYou to distract this guy- just long enough for Itachi-sensei to guide Guy, anyway.“Lee! Don’t engage until sensei says so! I’m going to stay at a distance and attack that way!” you yell, pulling out your bow.“Right!” Lee responds, pulling out some kunai.The three of you move as one unit, trying to stay at range. You try taking a few shots, and Lee throws a few kunai in conjunction- but Yojimbo simply deflects them with his blades.“Cowardly shinobi! Too afraid to face me in close combat? This is why the Samurai is superior! Mifune and the others are fools!” Yojimbo yells, taunting you. “Fine! Don’t think my skills are limited to personal combat! Sabre Technique! Flash!”Yojimbo cuts the air in a broad x shape- firing large crescents of chakra at you!Roll to dodge!(1d100, first 5)

>>47902831>>47902824>>47902821It's because you guys are rushing to roll.
>>47902839Well, hopefully we don't do crit fails.
>>47902811Please don't count >>47902824 as anything special.No crits, please.
>>47902857We do! AREN'T CRITS JUST THE BEST
>>47902839THANK fuck. RNG esus
>>47902856its RNG rushing has nothing to do with anything
>>47902872brah, scrollI rolled a one brah
>>47902866Failure is a character building experience.
>>47902892Maybe we won't fail at a combat some day.
>>47902892Not when it kills us
>>47902876the dice roller forms it's results from the post time, people rolling within seconds of each other tend to get similar results.
Can we please ditch this damned bow, gadgets and stuff, cool. Bows suck shit and don't suit the character an ounce.
Need to git gud at basic shit instead of dreaming about fancy stuff like puppets or summons or somet 3rd thing.lift some weights damn it!
This quest sure does love dead senseis huh
>>47902929Bows have been part of the character before the special release. Suck a fat one.
>>479029282817 second post time difference
>>47902930How would "getting gud" fix a homicidal dice bot?
>>47902899I mean we're playing a spoiled 12 year old heiress who passed her exam because her dad bribed the teachers.>Overconfident ninja kid>Gets knocked the fuck out>Humbled>Recuperates after mission, perhaps acquiring badass scar or something.>Rocky training montage>Returns with a vengeance.
>Ebisu died to protect this whelp of a ninjaWhat a senseless waste of human life
>>47902942Don't mean it has to stay and secondly we have used in in exactly 1 mission before this so no..its not established. Bows such shit, fuck the puppets. Go gear and gadgets to support our release.
>>47902968>Returns with a vengeance.>rolls a 1>dies
>>47902947I don't know the formula it uses, just that it is based on post time. still 3 low rolls in a 40 second period
>>47902968I mean, we could lose a limb then get a fancy gadget arm.>>47902972He died for Hinata actually.
You move to dodge- DC:45PASS! No crits? That’s fine. It’s the first true one of the quest, anyway.Writing.
>>47902986Fuck that. Our Tsuki ain't becoming no handicap fetish.
>>47902986>>47902972He died protecting all of us anons
>>47902997Praise Wargle.Shitstorm for nothing.
So... if we actually get to do anything else this combat do we just fry the asshole with stellar or do we stick to regular stuff.
>>47902997Thank you, Wargle.
>>47903027Regular. No need to expose ourself.
>>47903015>Shitstorm for nothing.that's your average shitstorm
>>47903027no because we are hiding the Stallar release until the exams at the earliest.
>>47902997Oh thank god, i'm fine with no crits d100. we've been fine without crits for 17 threads.
Between this thread and the next, I'm going to refine the dice system I use, I think. I'll take suggestions via twitter and in thread after it's over.
>>47903046Well yeah, more like a shit drizzle.
>>47903062take a d20put it up your buttshoot it outwrite down the numberbest of 3
>>47903062Dice are fine as is, we've just had extremely bad luck in this quest.and anons always fucking go apeshit whenever they roll badly and then start blaming everything but simple bad luck for it.
>>47903062The dice are fine. Everyone is just exaggerating.
>>47903062If anything just put a note in the Pastebin or something that crits and crit fails aren't a thing and all is good.
>>47903062I personally like 3d10 with a dc. If all three in one roll are over dc, it's a crit. if only 2 are over it's a pass. Only 1 of 3 over is a failure and the crit fail on noNE of the 3 are over. Still only take best of 3 or 5 or whatever. I know some people don't like it.I've been trying to think of a way of working something like Fantasy flight's star wars thematic dice in. Best I can say is if 3 or or more first 5 rolls are in ascending order, there is some saving grace even if none pass the roll. Say the DC is 40 but we only roll 2, 14, 33 in a row. It would fail the check but something would happen to help in a later roll or give hints to a better way to go. I dunno, just saying shit.
The three of you dodge out of the way- with a large crash as the attack connects where you were once standing.Itachi is next to you- Lee dodged the other way. As you land, Yojimbo is already chaining into his next attack.“Sabre Technique: Rupture!” he shouts, following with a vertical slice. A single blade of chakra flies towards you, with you and Itachi dodging forward just in time.“Rupture!”“Rupture!”“Rupture!”“Rupture!”He keeps firing them off in what almost seems like a dance. You have to keep moving to avoid them, making getting in attack difficult. In this distance, you can see Lee trying to ponder his next move, as his ranged attacks have proved ineffective.Itachi is more than self sufficient, but you can see he’s still guiding the clone. He’s dodging these attacks with his eyes closed.Blows are being rained down upon you from a distance. How should you proceed?1. Just try to keep distracting him until Itachi-sensei is finished.2. Try to attack him with a Technique (Dragon Bullet or Great Fireball)3. Try a technique whilst Lee distracts him.4. Have Lee engage. (Pick another option with this)5. Use a Stellar Chakra technique (Which one?)>Write-in
>>47903062I'm quite partial to 3d6 with circumstantial bonuses and penalties. It means the rolls tend towards the average, and bonuses for good/poor conditions or for using a technique/tactic that we're particularly good at make a big difference. A +1 or +2 bonus in situations like that makes a way bigger difference than it would rolling a d100 or even a d20.
>>47903250>2. Try to attack him with a Technique (Great Fireball)
>>47903250>1. Just try to keep distracting him until Itachi-sensei is finished.
>>47903250Gee bill that sure is small.Here's a bigger image.
>>479032501. Just try to keep distracting him until Itachi-sensei is finished.
>>47903250>4. Have Lee engage. (Pick another option with this)>2. Try to attack him with a TechniqueOk, Lee dive in for a faint attack, im gonna use Dragon Bullet, your faint will draw him in and ill hit him, I know I can trust you and you can pull this off.
>>47903250>2. Try to attack him with a Technique (Dragon Bullet)
>>47903250>2. Try to attack him with a Technique (Dragon Bullet or Great Fireball)Dragon Bullet
>>47903250>>47903286This, lets actually do something instead of been a sitting duck waiting for Itachi to tell us what to do! Use our own initiative. If Lee baits him into a decent position we can fuck him up royally by continuous fire.
>>47903250>2. Try to attack him with a Technique (Dragon Bullet or Great Fireball)
>>47903250>2. Try to attack him with a Technique (Dragon Bullet
>>47903250>2 Dragon bullet
>>47903250>3. Try a technique whilst Lee distracts him.Get lee to jump in there and make him present himself in vulnerable state, then have Lee get the fuck outta there and pummel the guy with Dragon bullets
Using a technique wins.1. Great Fireball2. Fire Dragon Bullet
>>47903391>2. Fire Dragon Bullet
>>479033912. Fire Dragon Bullet
FIRE DRAGON BULLET!Writing.
>>47903250what is that, a slash for ants?
You decide to fire back with some techniques of your own.You throw up the handsigns and begin to mold the chakra in your stomach…“Fire Dragon Bullet!” you yell, and exhale the fire chakra towards the samurai as a continuous stream of flame.Yojimbo, however, just laughs. The attack dissipates, his armor glowing brighter blue as you continue the stream of fire.“Behold progress, Shinobi! This armor renders me immune to your pesky magics! Hahaha!” he gloats, even stopping his attack to do so. [Norihime Genius!]Chakra Armor. You doubt your father made it, but you don’t doubt that it’s probably a derivative of his designs….. And you know what their weakness is.The cannot take large concentrated bursts of chakra- a high enough powered attack will overload the armor, and either destroy it outright, or render it vulnerable to conventional attacks.You know Lee cannot do anything powerful enough to do so, but Itachi-sensei might.There’s also your ace in the hole…. The Stellar Release.You…1. Tell Itachi-sensei we need him!2. Use a stellar release technique.
>>47903797>1. Tell Itachi-sensei we need him!Not now.
>>47903797>2. Use a stellar release technique.Shooting Star!
>>47903797>1. Tell Itachi-sensei we need him!Really want to go with 2 but I doubt it will get enough support.
>>47903797>1. Tell Itachi-sensei we need him!
>>47903797>1. Tell Itachi-sensei we need him!Tell him we know what it is and how to beat it but we don't personally know an attack of that caliber
Wakey Wakey crow-boy!Writing.
>>47903797>2. Use a stellar release technique.Let's finally fucking use it. Itachi can keep a secret, and Lee is trustworthy.
>>47903905He literally has to tell Minato and once that happens the cat is a bit out of the bag and besides when we do reveal it guess what all our missions are going to be dangerous as fuck because people are going to try to kidnap us for our release
>>47903905Noooo.1) We only use it when Danzo gives the go ahead, this is a ROOT toy.2) >>47903938 what he said3) Stellar burns through chakra like it does targets, we may need more chakra yet.
>>47903938Combined elements are basically the least valuable bloodlines
>>47904010Maybe some like Scorch or Magnetism but something this level with this power would be really valuable
>>47904000We were also supposed to keep shadow clones secret and that lasted like two days, we're absolutely not going to be able stick to never using stellar release.
>>47904020Its... basically fire with some quirks. Especially from the perspective of someone who's not actually using it, they would have a hard time telling why you wouldn't be better off tossing more chakra into a fire release.
>>47904024Sure we are. We're doing it right now.
>>47904043It's fucking plasma.We made a star with it.And people getting hit with the release either get fused witht he environment or are fucking evaporated. And that's only at 1.5/5 Mastery!
>>47903797>2. Use a stellar release technique.Winding in the piss.
>>47903797>1. Tell Itachi-sensei we need him!But as we say that I think it's time we try to use our genius perk.Focus the fire into a fire point, hit that Armour with a thin and focused beam
We are going to reveal Stellar at the Chunin exams right?I mean you guys aren't actually going to always fight with one hand tied behind your back right?
>>47903797>2. Use a stellar release techniqueItachi has his eyes closed. Maybe let's not yell out the name of our technique and put stellar chakra in our next dragon bullet.
>>47904101You know what, thats not a bad idea, in battle improvise and overcome. Plus we can apply Staller to it later.Adding this to my vote of>>47903846
>>47904061>>47904101>>47904110The vote's already over you blind fucks.
>>47904106Thats the plan we are saving it for that sorta deal.
>>47904106Either that or Jonin exams we need to be strong enough to protect ourselves on missions or always have a stronger bodyguard
>>47904106>Not revealing and BTFO-ing your opponents at the last minute with your trump card
>>47904128We were told not to use it unless it was basically our last option.
While he gloats, you turn to Itachi-sensei.“Sensei! I need you! I know how to beat him! His armor renders him immune to lower powered techniques, but a powerful technique should disable it- or destroy it entirely!” you say, shaking him awake.His eyes snap open-“I heard you! Hopefully Guy can make it the rest of the way without me…” he mutters, turning to look at the Samurai.“Oho, the teacher wakes! Your students are to weak, shinobi! Come then! Let me show them how inferior shinobi are to the samurai!“Sabre Art! Flash!” he shouts, firing off the same x-shaped projectile as before. You dodge out of the way with ease, given your speed, and how it was primarily aimed at Itachi-sensei.You turn to look at him, only to notice he’s high above where the attack would’ve landed. His sharingan have activated….“Mass Shadow Clone Jutsu!” Itachi shouts, making a series of hand signs. The air above the samurai fills with Itachi-clones! As they fall towards the Samurai, you hear him laugh. “Mere clones aren’t enough! I’ll cut through them like paper!” “Great Clone Explosion Technique.” Itachi says, this time at a much lower volume.“Lee! Get down!” you yell from across the room.As Yojimbo strikes the first clone, it detonates. It’s detonation triggers another, and another…The chain explosions rock the room you’re in- although it’s hard to tell just how badly. The explosions ring throughout the chamber- it’s hard to see or hear anything…As once they cease, and the dust clears, you see a few things. Itachi-sensei is slumped over, near where the major is. His outfit is charred, but it looks like the mayor is ok. Lee gets up and shouts, covered in soot and ash. “Woooaaaah! That was insane! I’ve never seen anything like that!”Good to know he’s ok.Yojimbo is collapsed in the middle of the room- he’s severely burned, and his armor looks to have all but evaporated.
>>47904141Once its revealed we are going to use it more often.
I'm really looking forward to just straight up frying some smug motherfucker in the chunin exams.
>>47904150ah, damn shame about the armor, maybe we can still salvage a gauntlet
You…1. Run over to check on Itachi-sensei2. Go make sure Yojimbo is taken care of.
>>47904150>“Great Clone Explosion Technique.” Itachi says, this time at a much lower volume.YOOOOOOOOO~!
>>47904165>2. Go make sure Yojimbo is taken care of.Mission first now and forever
>>47904165>2. Go make sure Yojimbo is taken care of.>Have Lee check no Itachi
>>47904165>2. Go make sure Yojimbo is taken care of.We have to make sure.
>>47904165>2. Go make sure Yojimbo is taken care of.>>47904154Don't kill them.
>>47904165>2. Go make sure Yojimbo is taken care of.send lee to itachi
>>47904177Well, no not kill them just completely burn through their big special technique and leave them completely outclassed in terms of fire power.
>>47904165>2. Go make sure Yojimbo is taken care of.
>>47904165>2. Go make sure Yojimbo is taken care of.Take him out just to be sure.
>>47904177Where not pulling our punches anon if someone dies from our jutsu they die, its handled in the rules
>>47904177>Don't kill them.Depends on how much of a dick/danger they are, Might not have a choice, Also pulling your punches leads to you or your team mates dying.
>>47904150Why do all of our teachers fucking explode?
>>47904165>2. Go make sure Yojimbo is taken care of.Get his swords away from him, leave the choice to kill him up to Itachi.
>>47904203I don't think Minato would accept us murdering someone in a contest.>>47904193It can still kill them.>>47904207Maybe in the Forest of Death, but that's it. Nowhere else.
Confirming the kill.Writing.
>>47904225You know what, I'm voting to kill someone in the exam now, Just because of you.
>>47904225What is he gonna say to us anon>You shouldn't have gone all out against your opponent like this was a real fight even though thats what we told you to do
“Lee! Check on Itachi-sensei! I’m going take a look at this guy…” you order, walking over to Yojimbo’s prone body.You see Lee make haste over to where Itachi and the Mayor are.Looking down, you get your first glimpse of what the man known as Yojimbo actually looked like; long grey hair and stubble on his face, partially burned off by the intensity of the attack. Bit and pieces of his armor lay strewn about, likely blown away during the explosions. His body is covered in severe burns- his arms almost entirely blackened.“S-shinobi…” he sputters, his eyes staring blankly towards the ceiling.“Mifune was right, after all. We’ll forever be at the whim of you damn shinobi… Normal people cannot hope to compete. Hah….”His eyes focus on you, now looking down at him.“I’ll be waiting for you all… in hell…. Shi.. no…..bi………”His head falls to one side- his body, limp and immobile. You’re no medical-nin, but he has to be dead.“Tsuki-chan! Itachi is ok! He’s just-”“I’m fine, Lee.” Itachi says, shaking free of Lee’s shoulder. “Even for someone like me, using that technique is dangerous. I had to limit the number clones as not to burn through all of my chakra- and still have enough to detonate them.” You…1. Report that Yojimbo is dead.2. Run and hug Itachi. You didn’t want to lose another Sensei.3. Thank Lee for his help. 4. Check on the mayor.
>>479043261. Report that Yojimbo is dead.4. Check on the mayor.
>>47904326>2. Run and hug Itachi. You didn’t want to lose another Sensei.Then totally realize what you are doing and>1. Report that Yojimbo is dead.

>>47904326>1. Report that Yojimbo is dead.>2. Run and hug Itachi. You didn’t want to lose another Sensei.
1 & 2Writing~

>>47904326>1. Report that Yojimbo is dead.Make a joke about how our teachers keep blowing up.
Votes over anons.
You run and hug Itachi. You didn’t really think about it, but…He stiffens a bit, as either he was sore, or was just surprised.Suddenly, you realize what you’re doing- you jump backwards, blushing a brighter red than Nori’s mother’s hair.“S-sorry Sensei- I was just- I’m happy that-” you stumble over your words.A finger pokes you square in the head- and stays there.“Ow!” you mumble.“Thank you, Tsuki. I didn’t mean to worry you like that. I’ll have to try harder from now on not to make you worry.” he says, a small smile on his face. Damn him. Damn him!“Hmph. I cannot lose two sensei, what would people say? They’d think we were cursed!” you huff.“Oh, and the samurai is dead. Yojimbo, he said his name was.”“Yojimbo. A samurai from the Land of Iron. New foes show themselves all the time, it seems…” he says, the smile gone.Lee, meanwhile, unties the major. She slowly rises, and dusts herself off. “Well that was quite the show- but I’m glad everyone’s alright. If it’s alright with you Leaf shinobi, these old bones are quite tired… is there anything else you need to do?”“We need to check on the others- hopefully Guy was able to take care of it” Itachi says in a serious tone.As you’re leaving, you take a look around. The weapons of the other Samurai are still outside the door. Do you take them?1. Yes2. No
>>47904500>1. YesTake them to father.
>>47904500>2. Nothe villagers need them more imo
>>47904500>1. YesSwords + Launchers = Sword-Launchers.
>>47904500>YesAlways good to learn about new tech and how to use it to make our goods better
>>47904500>1. YesMurder-Hobo Tsuki leaves nothing behind!
>>47904500>1. YesThe Norihime family will use everything they can!
>>47904546It's not really murder-hobo-ing if it's our mission.
You take a few moments to free the scabbards from the armor, and take the two blades. Might be useful, and you know they conduct chakra.The party heads back to the fork, where you run into Guy, accompanied by the rest of the team. They all look a little worse for wear- tears in the uniform, cuts in several places. You can tell Nori took a particularly nasty shot to the shoulder, although it seems to be bandaged for now. As both parties meet, a wave of relief seems to wash over everyone.“Shame of you to disappear on me like that, Itachi. Took me longer to figure out where I was needed! Turned out alright, in the end, though! Haha!” Guy says, throwing up his trademark smile.Sasuke and Sakura just sigh and shake their heads. Looking closely, you can see the Guy took his fair share of shots as well, he’s just not letting them affect him- or putting up a front. The entire group heads back outside to the entrance, and are greeted by a few more bodies than before. “A patrol was returning- not many, and they really wanted a fight!” Guy says exuberantly.A short while later, you all take your seats in the mayor’s home- relatively bare, as it was just sacked, but enough remains to rest in, for the time being. Itachi and Guy are discussing things with the Mayor, so you just take a moment to relax. The mission is over- and maybe you’ll get to stay in those hot springs on the way back, like was promised. That would be nice….
Alrighty boys, I'll be ending it here for tonight. Work in the morning and gym in the evening call me to my bed.@WargleQM for edgy diatribe I'll make an announcement later in the week when the next thread will be. Assumption is the weekend, but I may feel a bit frisky. POST THREAD BEGINS NOW!
