Shinobi Quest #20This 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 teammates returned home from their mission. Tsuki opted to travel with Itachi and Guy to the Hokage’s office, where she was greeted by a council of clan leaders. During the explanation of the events of the mission, Tsuki seemingly drew the ire of Fugaku Uchiha, which eventually erupted into a full scale argument. After resolving it, the Fourth asked her to pledge loyalty to him in front of the other clan elders, which she did. Afterwards, Tsuki and Itachi had a private conversation at the top of the Hokage mountain….We return moments later, as Tsuki heads inside her family manor. Having learned some things from Itachi, she is full of questions….
You walk the grounds outside your family home- it’s good just to be out here, a place so familiar and safe. Eventually after making a lap, you see Maru. You run up and give her a hug, which she returns with warmth.“Welcome home, Tsuki-dono!” she says with a smile.“I’m glad to be back.” you say earnestly.You have some questions, although Maru isn’t the person you should ask.You…1. Inquire about Danzo’s location.2. Inquire about Father’s location.3. Make small talk with Maru instead.
This is a nice quest.
>>48067057>3. Make small talk with Maru instead.
>>48067057>2. Inquire about Father’s location.
>>48067057Alright time for Shinobi quest, maybe this'll cheer me up from Berserk>3. Make small talk with Maru instead.We haven't spent anytime on her s-link
>>48067057>2. Inquire about Father’s location.Yay! And only slightly late!
>>48067080What if Tsuki turns out to be this world's version of Griffith?
>>48067115Thats the plan
>>48067115I don't think we would need to kill our friends to make our dreams come true. We have money and brains.
>>48067134Would she become Masto? Or Masfrom?>>48067139True, but it'd help. I think.
>>48067153No idea what you mean by that anon
>>48067187Femto (Feminine to)Masfrom (Masculine from)
>>48067216Went right over my head, so Nori would be our Guts, Hinata would be Judah, Sakura would be Corkus, and TenTen would be Pippin. Whose Costco?
>>48067248I dunno.I haven't read Berserk. I just know some stuff from references, googling things, etc.I really need to read it at some point.
Fucking ties.Are we in a Golden Age?It's always possible~
>>48067275Roll for it.
Rolled 2 (1d2)>>480672751 Maru2 Father
>>48067139Can't have slaughter without laughter! ohohohoho
>>48067275This quest is going to get really interesting once we hit the Lost Children arc
>>48067294Easy enough. Time for Yoru~>>48067248Don't 100% agree but Nori as Guts is hilarious and very accurate.
>>48067315Will we encounter Rape Bijuu?
>>48067353Yes. Because is not Berserk without rape.
>>48067352How would you set up the rest of the gang?
>>48067408I'd say Hinata is Pippin, from what I looked up.
After some chatting, you feel like you’ve caught up with Maru. It’s almost been two weeks, but it seems as usual, she’s focused more on taking care of Father than herself.Speaking of Father…“Maru, where might Father be? I’d like to see him.” you inquire.“Ah, we had just finished up dinner- although he’s probably back in his study by now.” she guesses.She’s probably right.“Thank you, Maru. I’ll talk to you later, ok?” you say, running off towards the side entrance to the manse.She just laughs and waves as you take off.You go inside, then round the corner to climb the central stairs. You take a left and then a right, and head straight to Father’s study.The door is open- good.You knock.“Aha! My precious shinobi has returned from her mission? Please come in, dear.” you hear him say.Father’s study looks unchanged- always in various states of disarray. As you walk inside, he rises from his chair, and greets you with a large embrace, lifting you off the ground.He spins with you in his arms, and you both laugh.After a moment, he sets you down.“You know you’re not going to be able to do that forever, Father.” you tease.“Bah, don’t remind me. You’re growing up too fast as it is. Part of me wants to keep my little princess forever- but I wouldn’t deign to keep you from the world. Mostly I just want to see what my little girl can accomplish.” he says, resting his hand on your head.“And you *will* always be my little girl. No matter how much you grow nor how old and gray I become.” He finishes.You hug him. “Thanks, Dad.”You did have some questions... but is now the time?1. Ask Dad some questions...2. Don't. Don't want to ruin the moment.3. Don't. Wait and ask Danzo instead.>Write-in
>>48067408Is it bad that I can't shake the image of Hinata as Casca? >_>
>>48067591>2. Don't. Don't want to ruin the moment.
>>48067591>3. Don't. Wait and ask Danzo instead.
>>48067611I thought so too but then remembered we aren't going for Yuri
>>48067624Right, but no other characters would make sense in context. Oh, and Orochimaru is definitely Zodd.:'D
>>48067591>1. Ask Dad some questions...It's got to happen sooner or later.
>>48067611>>48067624We aren't, but Nori might.
>>48067657Nah Wyld but more for the character type not what happens. Zod is fitting as fuck though.
>>48067591>3. Don't. Wait and ask Danzo instead.We are daddies lil girl. For once he seems so very happy let him have that.
>>480675913. Don't. Wait and ask Danzo instead.
>>48067662>We rape Hinata to get to NoriSounds about right
Not asking Dad, asking Danzo instead.Writing.
>>48067591Didn't we loot a lot of stuff during that mission? We should show it to him and see if he can make anything of it.
>>48067807We should totally BAWKS OF SKRAPS with dad sometime.
Well the two Katana that Samurai used are made of Chakra conducting metal so we actually just got some rather nice loot. Unless Wargle says they are not.
“Did everything go as planned on your mission, sweetheart?” your father asks.“.....yes. Everything went according to plan. I brought some things back for you to look at- but we can do that later. I need to speak with Danzo shortly.” You say, not looking at your father when you say it.“Haha, old man has you on a strict leash, does he? Well, I certainly won’t be the one to hold up your training, my dear. Hurry along, just let me know whenever you have some spare time, alright?” He says, beaming.[You can now choose to spend time with Yoru Norihime during free periods. This may increase your INT, as well as lead to technological breakthroughs.]You head down to the basement. You didn’t see Danzo anywhere in the house- and that means he could only be one place. After a few moments, you reach his bedchamber. The door is open. Danzo… doesn’t seem to be here?Were you wrong…?1. Wait patiently for Danzo2. Go look for him somewhere else.3. Take a look around his quarters>write-in
>>48067975>1. Wait patiently for DanzoHe's testing us
>>48067807No need to bother him about it, we could do it ourselves. Which leads to the question: What should our first building project be? I think the most useful thing we could make is some sort of storage seal system to carry all our stuff, but that's not really useful until we have at least two other things. Right now I think we should try to learn chakra infusion. Luckily we have two swords, so we can afford to test out stellar relese and see if it can hold up.
>>48067975Shadow clone nosey tsuki no jutsu
>>48067975>1. Wait patiently for Danzo
>>48067975>1. Wait patiently>Write in: Get bored>3. Take a look around his quarters
>>48067975>>2. Go look for him somewhere else.There's no way going in there can be a good idea, and if he really isn't here, we could be waiting a while.
>>48067975>Go to the Underground Facility and wait for him.
>>48067975>1. Wait patiently for DanzoPractice our Hand Seals and think of increasingly difficult shogi movements.
>>48067993Rudimentary puppet to practice with
>>48067975>1. Wait patiently for DanzoHe said don't go in there unless it's with him directly. Tsuki is a good little sleeper agent and will wait accordingly, we do not pry, respect his privacy.
>>48068024You do not have the key, anon.
>>48067975>1Wait for Danzo, grab a Shogi board and have a game with ourselves. Twice the learning capacity and strategy gain.Anons wanting to go in there, for shame
We are such an obedient little mind slave. Turns out root just needed some love and he wouldn't have needed to resort to kidnapping and brain washing.
Good little Tsuki waits patiently. Writing.
>>48068121>He wants to disappoint daddy DanzoFor shame anon
>>48068121>Following and respecting the teacher's instructions is brainwashingAnon, please. Don't be so cynical.
You take a seat on his bed and wait. And wait…..…..and wait.Eventually, you find yourself beginning to doze off….For some reason, this doesn’t seem to bother you….You feel yourself drifting upon a great sea- it’s waves rocking you gently back and forth…You…1. Dream of the future.2. Dream of the past.3. Dream of heaven4. Dream of the afterlife.5. Dream of something entirely different.

>>480683392. Dream of the past.
>>480683395. Dream of something entirely different.Pic related.
>>48068339>6. Wake up. What are you thinking, falling asleep in Danzo's room while you wait? The height of rudeness, it is.
>>48068436>No Mr. Danzo I don't want to eat my broccoli >SHARINGAN
>>48068499That pic always makes me laugh.
>>48068339>2. Dream of the past.
Dreaming of something a bit different.Writing.
By the way folks I think when training with Danzo we should focus on using our release internally for the speed and strength boost. As we improve our strength naturally this will boost us further and get is so fast we leave charred ground and flickering blue flames as we go full quick silver.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gtVirHikldAYou sit up....where are you? Breathing is… difficult.A vast blue sky surrounds you on all sides- you don’t even have anything to stand on.The clouds seem to be moving very quickly, almost if time itself was accelerated.It’s all rather disorienting- until you see clouds beginning to accumulate around you.Your vision quickly becomes obscured, the thick grey of the clouds drowning out the clear blue sky.You spin on your heel, trying to find any spot not being choked by ever darkening clouds- it is then when you see it- a great pair of yellow eyes.“NORIHIME.” the voice rumbles. It impossibly loud, like a thunderclap in a great storm.“WILL THE PRINCESS BECOME THE QUEEN? WILL THE QUEEN UNITE HER PEOPLE? OR DESTROY THEM?” It’s voice is punctuated by a great roar- but from behind you.A second pair of eyes leers are you from behind the cloud cover.“WILL YOU HAVE THE FEROCITY TO DESTROY THEM? OR WILL YOUR COMPASSION BE THE END OF ALL THINGS?” This new voice says, just as loud, with a burning intensity.A intense rumbling beneath you throws you off your balance- and causes you to look down. A third pair of eyes stares back.“THE EARTH WEEPS. BUT DOES IT WEEP FOR YOU? OR DOES IT WEEP FOR ITSELF? YOU MUST BE STRONG, LITTLE ONE. STRONG AS THE EARTH BENEATH YOUR FEET.”Far above, the call of a great bird silences the rumbling of the earth.“DANGER FROM ALL SIDES. ABOVE AND BELOW, WITHIN AND BEYOND. WILL YOU RISE FROM THE ASHES, NORIHIME? OR BECOME KINDLING FOR THE FIRES OF SOMEONE ELSE’S FATE?”All four voices speak in unison-“WE ARE WATCHING, TSUKI NORIHIME. SEEK POWER. STRENGTH. WISDOM. COURAGE. WILL YOU BECOME THIS WORLD’S BRIGHT SUN? OR BECOME THE PALE MOON ILLUMINATING ETERNAL NIGHT? WE ARE WATCHING.”
>>48068889>We wake up sweating>Feel something in our hand>Its a behelit>yfw
>>48068889>"Fuck all four of you, I'mma be the beautiful light in the darkness. The Moon that shall Rule the Stars."
>>48068936>not just any behelit>Crimson Behelit
You feel someone shaking you, gently.You wake- to see Danzo looking down at you with a concerned look.“I came back from kitchens to find you slumped over on the bed- you were muttering and shaking- are you alright?”1. I’m fine.2. I… don’t know.3. No, I’m confused.>Write-In
>>48068962>1. I’m fine.>Buts whats this in my hand
>>48068962>1. I’m fine.
>>48068889>>48068942I just realized that if Tsuki decides to rule the world and also embraces becoming an inventor, she's basically a blue-haired girl version of DOCTOR DOOM.>>48068962>3. No, I’m confused.
>>48068962>1. I’m fine.I apologize Danzo-sama,it's been quite a busy few days. I was wondering if I might have a word?
>>48068962>3. No, I’m confusedJust had a tripping dream waiting for you so I can ask a couple questions.
>>48068962>3. No, I’m confused.
>>48068962>4. Is it possible for a dream to not really be a dream?
>>48068962>1. I’m fine.No little nightmare will sway us.
>>48068962>1. I’m fine.I love to imagine that pic is danzo's "im worried about you" face, it just always looks like he's judging you. His only crime was chronic bitch face
>>48068987NO ONE CAN DEFEAT NORIHIME!
>>48069039Strike calm down man. Reel the Texas back a bit. Ok?
>>48068928Not sure which I like more. The Phoenix is cool, but so is the turtle
>This is actually a Berserk quest disguised as a Naruto questNothing would make me happier Wargle
>>48069091As much as I love Berserk, I feel that would be somewhat disingenuous-Doesn't mean I won't borrow elements of it :'D
>>48068962>>Write-In: Tell him everything
A dream is just a dream, you'll be alright.Writing.
>>48069124Just with less rape yeah?
>>48069124Are the Four Beasts the Godhand?And is it possible for Tsuki to join them?
>>48069124So we can get the Crimson Behelit and join the God Hand right
>>48069157Of course. This isn't that kind of quest. >>48069158You aren't getting a behelit, anon. Sorry.
>>48069185B-B-But I wanna sacrifice all of our friends for power and glory...
>>48069202Then go run a Berserk quest. I'm sure a lot of people would be interested in it. Wargle and myself included.>>48069185Oh thank ninja Jesus!
>>48069124We'll Jashin is out there... Maybe Tsuki works the other angle, create war so blood might flow... Is Jashin an old one?
>>48069228Not that anon but running a Berserk quest would be hard as shitIf you do it post Eclipse you run into the problem of how are you going to fight any apostles without being Guts
Can Edo Tensei zombies be used as undead chakra batteries to power an army of death-machines? >>48069202Don't worry, we can still sacrifice our humanity to transcend mortality and become a dark god! >>48069263Yeah, that sounds hard. A HxH quest would be way easier.
>>48069263Golden Age. You fight with giant fuck off canons anon. Fuck getting close to an Apostle.
>>48069325Ya but if you do Golden age your going to hit Eclipse since its fated to happen and then if your part of the hawks thats the end of the quest
>>48069349Who said it had to be in Midland? Could be done in Chudar just as well. Fuck could even be a bit easier until Griffith shows up to fuck everyone's day up.
“I… am fine. Just a odd dream…” you say, taking Danzo’s hand as he helps you up.“Do you want to talk about it?” He asks, concern on his face- although someone not familiar with him may not be able to see it.“No, it’s just a dream, after all. Although, I was looking for you. I have some things I need to talk to you about.” you say, shaking off the vestiges of sleep.He sighs.“Very well. Come, we go down into the depths.” he says, and produces the key to the elevator.------------------------------------------------------You and Danzo are sitting across from one another in the ROOT facility training area. He brings you a cup of tea- not Maru’s sweet concoction, but something bitter and vaguely herbal.“It will wake you up and clear your mind.” he says, while taking a cup for himself.“Now, you said you had questions. I’ve heard some whispers of trouble in north, and I assume they are related.” he says, holding your gaze.“So, go ahead.”1. Who is Orochimaru?2. Who are you, really, Danzo?3. Who is Shisui Uchiha? Why do the Uchiha hate you so?4. What are your goals?Pick One- the conversation will have branching topics.
>>48069449>1. Who is Orochimaru?
>>48069449>2. Who are you, really, Danzo?>>48069403If your in Chudar your probably going to be conscripted into the military and if your unit starts to do really well then you either are going to be put against the Hawks or god forbid the Black Dogs
Can't shake the snake.Writing.
The most pressing question- “Who is Orochimaru?”Danzo takes a drink of his tea.“He was once a Shinobi of the Leaf, naturally talented and highly skilled. One of the three Sannin, he was, for many years, the pride of this village. He is also bafflingly intelligent, and is always several steps ahead. He left us shortly before you were born, taking many of his students many colleagues with him.” he says, bereft of emotion.1. Why did he leave?2. How well did you know him?3. You speak highly of a man that seems a monster…
>>48069707>3. You speak highly of a man that seems a monster…
>>48069707>Something ElseHe's the one causing trouble up north, he appears to have created a legion of monsters litral...
>>48069707>2. How well did you know him?
>>48069707>4. Danzo, it's not like you to evade the question like this, especially when you know I'll reach the truth eventually. What did he do?
>>48069762I kinda like this one.>>48069728and this one
>>48069707>He left us shortly before you were bornDamn. The timeline is fucked enough that yeah this is as valid as anything, but I was really hoping you had gone later so that he might have been introduced to baby tsuki and we could get "ah, little Tsuki is that you? Its been so long since I last saw you!"
>>480697073. You speak highly of a man that seems a monster…
>>48069762Lets do it
>>48069707>>48069762Yeah that's good
>>48069802...but that's pretty much on the canon timeline.>>48069762Dis one.
3, with >>48069762blended in
>>48069834Pretty sure that orichimaru's timeline has both stuff that has him leave the village way before the ninetails attack but then he's helping out danzo with shit a good ways into the fourth taking back over and for all that danzo would be down for working with an s-class missing nin orichimaru doesn't get anything out of that situation when he's no longer needing to get secret resources inside the leaf. Inconsistent as fuck, like a lot of the naruto backstory.
>>48069890I was more referring to the fact that Oro was canonically in the village til just before the switch from 3rd to 4th Hokages. Which, considering our age, would have been just before our birth in this timeline.Too damn true about the inconsistencies though.Damn it Kishimoto! Write more world building and less shounen woo-woo!
>>48069929Yeah that's what it's "supposed" to be but then if you've got a unified timeline it means that orichimaru wasn't helping out danzo with some of Danzo's worst shit, so it's sometimes a matter of what you want to keep (then again a lot of that wouldn't happen anyway since Danzo got shut down earlier, but Tsuki encountering Orichimaru being a "reunion" would have been fun.)
>>48069929>>48070021Oh and also I think Orichimaru leaving early+anko's age implies she's a itachi/kakashi level prodigy, which we uh, don't get much indication ofMight be misremembering exactly what's inconsistent in what way though.
“Danzo. You’re evading the question. No matter his previous accomplishments or loyalties, he’s the one responsible for the troubles in the north. He has an army of literal monsters at his command, seemingly intent on conquering the Land of Rice Fields.” you scold.He deflates a bit- but only a little.“If he has become a threat to the Leaf- then he must be destroyed.” he says with a bit of finality.“What did he do, Danzo? Why did he leave?” you push further.“He was chased out by the Fourth and Hiruzen Sarutobi, the Third. He had been performing experiments on the nature of chakra implementation and manipulation, along with preliminary research into functional immortality. When he ran out of test subjects he had captured during the 3rd World War, he began to take shinobi. This eventually led Minato and Sarutobi right to him- although he seemed to know his time was short. By the time they had figured it out, he had already moved his team of researchers and doctors out of Konoha, probably to one of his secret hideouts.” he admits.Human experimentation. On Konoha shinobi, no less.And now, he seems able to create monsters.1. What was your relationship to him?2. Did he work with my father at all?3. He managed to escape from two kage?4. Why would he be trying to conquer a shinobi country?
>>48070105>2. Did he work with my father at all?
>>48070066>>48070021>>48069929>>48069890Timelines aren't Kishimoto's strongpoint. It's the one thing n the manga which is just totally broken with no possible alternate interpretation. Depending on how you look at things Itachi is either 50 or -5, and Sasuke is his older brother.
>>48070105>1. What was your relationship to him?
>>48070105>3. He managed to escape from two kage?
>>480701051. What was your relationship to him?2. Did he work with my father at all?
>>48070105>1. What was your relationship to him?It seems Fugaku is still hung up about you and his relationship, infact. [Share the details of Hidan and our mission].
>>48070105>2. Did he work with my father at all?I'd add in 1 as well but if we are doing single choices
>>48070159>>48070149These. After this lets say enough remenising lets build a better future, get a little training down.Also I had an idea folks....it'd take a long time but could be insanly OP. we work on a technique to turn our own body into our Blue Flamed Chakra, we can scatter and reform.The principles are simple, its used in that hiding in water/stone technique all we are doing is channeling into our own natural element.
>>48070119Yeah I'm aware, just though a lot of the time there's one clear choice that does less to fuck up how you interpret everything else.
>>48070105>5. Is he responsible for me?The last thing we want is this creeping up on us.
1 & 2 with>>48070159Writing.
>>48070279We should ask this later.He most likely is involved, but I don't think Tsuki can figure that out just yet.Sometime soon, though, but not now.
>>48070294Just read the archives. You're a good QM.
>We need a Stellar Release version of thishttp://naruto.wikia.com/wiki/Fire_Release:_Phoenix_Sage_Flower_Nail_Crimson
>>48070377I second this.
“I was at the council meeting today, Danzo. Fugaku Uchiha seems convinced that you two were still connected- not that I believe that. He’s a paranoid old man. But obviously you were connected at one point, which begs the question- did he work with my father at all?” you say, holding eye contact with Danzo.“Damn Uchiha. The whole lot of them are nothing but problems-” he starts. He sighs.“Don’t mind me. Old grudges die hard. Yes, Orochimaru worked under me in ROOT, for a time. We were acquainted, and he did use our bases and resources. At no point did I ever deem him or his experiments truly dangerous to the leaf- although I hadn’t been aware he had been taking leaf shinobi, not until after he was gone.” “As for your Father- well, please do not take this the wrong way, Tsuki-dono. The two men are very similar. Driven, massively intelligent geniuses in their respective fields. Yoru is probably one of the few men Orochimaru actually respected. They did have a working business relationship, and both do share an infectious charisma. The only true difference is that Orochimaru seemingly lacks empathy- he places little to no value in human life. As far as I am aware, your father has not had contact with Yoru since he left.” Danzo finishes.1. Accept his assessment.2. Get angry.3. Change the subject.>Write-in
>>48070377I think that would count as a meteor shower or something like that for us.
>>48070431>1. Accept his assessment.
>>48070431>1. Accept his assessment.Good. Next obvious question: did he know or interact with my mother?
>>48070431Hurp, botched that last line. Yoru has not had contact with Orochimaru since he left Konoha. >>48070347Many thanks, anon
>>48070431>4. Was he involved in either my birth or my abilities?
>>48070431What grudges Danzo?Also our dad doesn't have contact with himself?
>>480704311. Accept his assessment.
>>48070481Our dad is orochimaru. We are doomed.
>>48070431>1. Accept his assessment.I concur. Tell him about Hidan and how Minato responded to the Black Cloak/Red Clouds>3. Change the subject.Now onto better things, a night of Practicing our Release before hitting the hay and meeting Sensei tomorrow
>>48070496That would actually be pretty great. So many Jutsu to learn.
>>48070431>3. Change the subject."Who is Jashin?"
1, with some final topic roundup.Writing.
So who we gonna be....Morpheus with our Katana, senbon SMG and Ebisu's shades or the Ghost twins with a paired shadow clone and train to use a Steller Chakra fire Epser form?https://youtu.be/SjQkP1kpUGQ?t=61
>>48070640Por que no los dos?
>>48070640At least it's not a puppet.
>>48070658>Por que no los dosEs un poco mucho no le parece
“You’re probably right. There is saying that the line between madness and genius is thin indeed. Although it still pains me to admit Father could be similar to that man.” you say.“All men have the capability to become monsters, Tsuki-dono. Always remember that.” Danzo responds, taking another drink of his tea.“So, how about my mother? She know Orochimaru?” you inquire.“As much as expected. Your mother met and interacted with most people your father did. The two were inseparable.”Makes sense.“I have another concern- I ran into a man in a black cloak with red clouds on it while on this last mission- he was praising some being named “Jashin”. When I explained this to the council, the Fourth was gravely concerned. Know anything about them?” you ask, shuddering as you remember the man.Danzo sets down his tea.“Akatsuki. A group of high profile missing-nin, working together as a sort of mercenary company. All members seem to be S-Class missing Shinobi, although not all members are currently known.” he says, walking over to a bookshelf. He pulls out a small book and begins to flip through it.”A Bingo Book?“Not many of their members are known, as the leader of the organization keeps a low profile, but….” he says, flipping even further into the book.
“Sasori of the Red Sand.”“Kisame Hoshigaki, formerly one of the Seven Swordsman of the Mist.”“Kakuzu, formerly of Takigakure.”“Deidara, formerly of Iwagakure.”“Hidan, formerly of Yugakure.”“If they are aligned with Orochimaru in some fashion he may also be among their number….” he finishes.“Kakuzu. The man I ran into kept saying that name. So he definitely is part of Akatsuki then…” you respond, thinking back.“As for Jashin- it’s some odd religion that started gaining a following among the Shinobi countries over the last two decades- it’s god, “Lord Jashin” only honors and respects blood sacrifice and combat. Many of it’s followers are said to have inhuman stamina, although I couldn’t tell you much more than that.” he says, closing the bingo book.A blood god, huh? Creepy. Most shinobi didn’t follow an organized religion, although temples dedicated to nature and the spirits were common. He definitely seemed quite fanatical in his following, too.“Those were my questions, Danzo. You’ve been most enlightening, as always. I’d like to resume my release training soon, as well.” you announce.“Very well, Tsuki-dono. Just let me know when you wish to resume.” he says, with a sigh of relief.At this point you’re a bit tired, and have some new information to mull over- you and Danzo head upstairs, after which you bid him goodnight.Might as well sleep in your own bed while you have the chance. You have to meet Itachi-sensei and the girls tomorrow, as well…..
>>48071124Don't start mate, we're here. Just use your filter
----------------------------------------------You wake from a deep, thankfully dreamless, sleep. You’re surrounded by the safety of your large blankets and pillows- home. Better than some Inn, or a tent. Stretching, you hop out of bed and get dressed. You’re not in a hurry, but it’s best not to sleep in too late- Maru will scold you, and you might miss out on breakfast!You find a clean spare uniform and change into it- nothing much, but it serves it’s purpose.It seems Father is hard at work- his door shut tight. Best to leave him be- he’ll come out for food eventually.Going downstairs, you find a small spread laid out for you- at least, small by Maru’s standard.Her voice rings out behind you- “Danzo said you’d be heading out for a meeting, so I opted to keep it light. Besides, you’ve been eating like a bird lately. No need to over prepare.” Not as much scolding as you figured. Maru always gets mad at you when you don’t eat enough. Says it doesn’t suit ladies to be skin and bones- although wouldn’t say you’re that skinny.You spend some time eating with Maru, and head out into the village proper. Judging by the sun, you have some time before the meeting starts, although you could always head there early.You….1. Head to the meeting early2. Go pickup Nori.3. Go pickup Hinata.
>>48071216>1. Head to the meeting early
>>48071216>3. Go pickup Hinata.We should also apologize to head hyuga for making a scene and ask if he could pardon our rudeness. Gotta keep the clan ties close.
>>48071216>2. Go pickup Nori.She probably needs to be woken up
>>48071216>>48071245This because i'm pretty sure we came across as a little disrespectful back them, couldn't hurt to apologize.
>>48071216>2. Go pickup Nori.wake up the Snorlax
>>48071245Why should we apologize for other people's rudeness? He's the one that insulted us.
>>48071273Its more apologizing for making a scene not for what we said.
>>48071216>1. Head to the meeting earlyEarly bird gets the worm.
>>480712161. Head to the meeting early
Early Tsuki gets the Uchiha.Writing.
>>48071332Surely he'll take it exactly as we mean it and not be an idiotic blowhard!
You decide to just head to the site of the meeting- you want to see the expanded park, and maybe just have a moment to yourself. You head to the memorial park- and to your surprise the expansion is quite sizable. Looks like the Fourth kept his word….It looks like the memorial park has increased by about a third of it’s original size- and you see, in the center of the expansion, a metal likeness of Ebisu-sensei standing at attention. At the bottom is inscribed a simple message: For Ebisu. Dedicated Friend, Sensei, and Shinobi. Rest well.Your heart grow heavy again- Ebisu-sensei. You cannot help but hope he’s watching you from the afterlife, and that he’ll be proud of the headway the three of you are making.“Oh, I didn’t expect anyone else to be here.” a voice says from behind you. You turn and see a man you don’t recognize- a jonin, by his uniform. He seems to be keeping a senbon in his mouth- an odd habit.“Oh, you’re Tsuki Norihime, right? Nice to meet you. I’m Genma. Ebisu, Guy and I were all part of the same team of genin. I came to bring him these-” you look down and see a bouquet of flowers in his hand.“He’d probably chastise me for wasting money on him, but he was a friend. I was happy to see his students honor him so.”You…1. Apologize2. Introduce yourself normally.3. Concur about his assessment of Ebisu-sensei.
>>48071448>2. Introduce yourself normally.
>>48071448>4. 'Au Contraire, he'd probably be happy that you made him look good in front of his impressionable young students through the gesture.'
>>48071448>>2. Introduce yourself normally.
>>48071448>2. Introduce yourself normally.>4. 'Au Contraire, he'd probably be happy that you made him look good in front of his impressionable young students through the gesture.'Have a light chuckle about our lost friends good nature and obsession with his students. I assume you know what he did from Guy.
>>480714482. Introduce yourself normally.
“You’d be correct. Nice to meet you, Genma. Though I have to admit- Ebisu-sensei would probably appreciate the gesture, making him look good in front of his impressionable young students.” you say with a smile.Genma laughs.“You’ve got that right. I suppose if we were both being honest with ourselves, I should bring him a copy of Master Jiraiya’s new book, right? Though I suppose I can’t exactly leave those just laying about… You DO remember saying Ebisu-sensei was a bit a pervert. Oh well, you aren’t going to disrespect your deceased sensei. “You look like you’re doing pretty alright, considering. From what I’ve overheard, you three are performing very well. Ebisu is very proud of all of you, I’m sure. Just keep working hard and honor his memory, alright?” Genma says with a smile on his face.“Oh, and if you really want to make him proud, you three should enter the next chunin exams. He’d love knowing his beloved students had made such an accomplishment as winning on the first try. I’ve been told I’m probably going to assist with proctoring this time, so let me know if you need anything, yeah? Ebisu didn’t have many friends, but we should stick together, to honor his memory.” he says, looking at the statue of his departed friend.He lays down the flowers, and heads off back toward the village.“I’m serious, you know. Just let the Hokage know!” he shouts, waving as he departs.After he leaves, you’re left alone with the monument for a while. You decide Genma’s suggestion might not be a bad one- you’re sure your team could take out those lesser teams in the exams!Might as well bring it up to the others, once they arrive.
Eventually, the rest of your team arrives- Itachi-sensei first, with Hinata shortly afterward. Nori is unsurprisingly last, but she isn’t late, at least.“Ok, you three. Thanks for coming- I just wanted to give you a heads up on what the Fourth has me doing.” Itachi says, addressing the group.“Dad’s sending you north, to check on that Orochimaru guy, right?” Nori says, still rubbing the sleep from her eyes.“Among other things. We’re to observe the situation closely and determine what exactly is going on. Don’t worry- we aren’t meant to engage. It will be perfectly safe.” he responds, trying to ease any worry in the group.Perfectly safe… right.“Now, I’m going to be gone for a while, so I won’t be able to take you out on missions myself- although the Fourth gave you to take on D-rank missions without me, if you want. They’ll be ones he screens first, so don’t be too disappointed…” he explains.Nori groans.“More dog chasing? Feh. I thought we were passed that, ya know? Although I guess it cannot be helped.”“I don’t mind,” Hinata pipes up. “It will be nice to have a little relaxation time, and we can focus on our training, as well.”While everyone is talking, you figure now is as good of a time as any….1. Declare your intent to enter the chunin exams.2. Don’t.
>>480717021. Declare your intent to enter the chunin exams.
>>48071702>1. Declare your intent to enter the chunin exams.
>>48071702>1. Declare your intent to WIN the chunin exams.It's a boring conversation anyway.
>>48071702>1. Declare your intent to enter the chunin exams.Sounds like a plan Sensei, we can how you the results of our training once you get back, now don't go to hard ya'hear.
>>48071719Last time I saw that Takeshi almost crippled a guy it was beautiful
>>48071745I think I posted that there, too.Was it during the Chuunin Exams? Like when he either almost disemboweled someone or just hit someone in the eye with a senbon?
1, of course.We're gonna win.Writing.
>>48071764>We're gonna win.
>>48071759Yep, I was that edgy anon whom came up with the idea and drew the diagram.....im also the artfag of this thread and Laze's.....no regrets
I don't understand why Ebisu got a statue, I mean ya he sacrificed himself to protect his students but he wasn't really that important of a ninja
>>48071780Because the payout for the mission was used for it.
>>48071780Because that is how much money he had leftover.
>>48071780a small time ninja took out a big bad Swordsmen of the mistto protect his comrades (Konoha loves that shit)and his reward money paid for it
>>48071775I love you.
“Well, I had an idea.” you say, getting everyone’s attention.“We should enter the chunin exams. They’ll be coming up in a few months- and if we get serious about our training, I think we’ll win!” you say emphatically. Nori agrees right out of the gate.“Badass. I need to show that brother of mine he isn’t gonna get ahead of me!”Hinata looks conflicted, but ultimately agrees.“Well, If we train hard… I think you may be right.”Itachi just chuckles.“Ambitious as always. I wouldn’t expect anything less from you three. Very well- before I leave, I’ll pull some strings and see if I can’t get you a jonin to help with additional training. I won’t be gone too long, I promise. I want to see just how much you can grow while I’m gone.” he says, smiling.“Excellent.” you say, filled with energy. It seems these next few months will be a bit more exciting than you initially thought….
aaand we're gonna end there folks. Need to get some sleep so I can fight off this cold. Thankfully we're right up against the next timeskip/training montage, so you have that to look forward to.Next thread will either be sunday or monday (or both), schedule permitting. @WargleQM for sweet, sweet theorycrafting.Post thread begins now!
>>48071863thanks for running.Tsuki is going to have bulk up and tighten up her fisticuffs skills if she's going to take the Chunin exam
>>48071863Thanks for running, Wargle.
>>48071863Thanks for running!>>48071869Musclegirl!Tsuki sounds hilarious.
>>48071863Great stuff as always.
>>48071883hueg body for hueg dreams
>>48071869We can't neglect our other strengths, though.
>>48071894Godly ambition.Godly gains.
I think the fastest way to some serious taijutsu gains, is the kenjutsu training with Tenten, it should be incredibly helpful.
>>48071952Gotta up the taijutsu first before we start on kenjutsu.
>>48071962We just need decent Taijutsu. I'm really against raising it above 2.5 at the most because that is neglecting the things we are actually good at.
>suki Norihime Ninjutsu 3.0Taijutsu 1.5Genjutsu 2.5Intelligence 3.0 (+0.5 from Norihime Genius)Strength 1.0Speed 2.0Stamina 2.5Hand seals 2.5Total: 18 Stellar Release Mastery Level: 1.5/5Taijutsu, Strength, Speed, Stamina, and Stellar release need to shored up imo
>>48071962>>48071973I'm fairly certain the training for swords and training tai is conducive to each other.
>>48071973>I'm really against raising it above 2.5 at the most because that is neglecting the things we are actually good at.I see where you're coming from, and I do agree that upping our strengths is great, but I also don't really like just focusing on a few stats and ignoring the rest.>>48071979Strength is our hardest stat to upgrade.>>48071984>https://twitter.com/WargleQM/status/745606963187322880
>>48071979What we need to focus on is Nin, Hand seals, and speed. We can get tai up to 2.5 but after that fuck it its not going to be a big part of Tsuki's fighting style
>>48072000Trips speak the truth.
>>48071979Personally, I don't think we need to beef up our strength that much. We could do scratch damage and finish off our enemies with our release and ninjutsu.
>>48071995"Kenjutsu proficiency is a trait you can earn,that allows you to use the taijutsu score to control kenjutsu." I just got this in a Pm from Wargle on Twitter
Not really relevant but I may as well post it somewhere, here's Tsuki annoyed someone is perving on her in the springs.
>>48072019Post a link.
>>48072019If that is the case then fuck Kenjutsu.
>>48072020All Tsuki art is welcome.
>>48072027>>48072030"Yes all tai training, swords included, will increase the score." I asked him about training with tenten and this was the answer
>>48072052Gonna need a pic or link there pal.
>>48072030Honestly we don't even have to be good if were just using the kibas their main benefit is boosting lightning jutsus and cutting down on the chakra costs since were doing a ninjutsu build we could just use them as power ups from afar
>>48072019>>48072030>>48072058>>48072052No you/he didn't.>https://twitter.com/WargleQM/with_replies
Taijutsu encompasses all martial arts, of which Kenjutsu is one of. Once you have the Kenjutsu proficiency trait, Your Taijutsu score will translate directly into a "Kenjutsu" score.Nothing else really makes sense.
>>48072065Time to pack it up.
>>48072069whatchu mean fampai
>>48072092People wanted to git gud with swords. Which go off our worst stats.
>Speed>Intelligence>Hand sealsI think these are the ones we need to master first.
>>48072099Which we should buff up, so we don't stay shit at close range.>>48072107Don't forget Ninjutsu.
>>48072107Nin needs to be up there
>>48072113>Which we should buff up, so we don't stay shit at close range.Exactly we only need to get good enough at Tai as to not be horrendously shit at it. 2.5-30 is fine for this stage atm, the other skills take priority
>>480721222.0 or 2.5, I'd say.Strength at 2.0 or so, since it's our hardest stat to level up.Focus on Speed, if we have to pick from Speed/Stamina/Strength.
>>480721342.0 is too low. That's still really abysmal. I'm not saying we need to be experts, but it would be nice not to be complete ass at it.
>>48072144>That's still really abysmal.Not really. It's not great, but it's not abysmal.
what level should stellar release be at?
>>48072158>72158 ▶5Realistically 2.5 since were gonna want to train up other stats
>>480721582.0 or 2.5.
>>48072157don't sugar coat it anon, that's not even good
>>480721812.0 is mediocre. Which is alright for out stage. Later on 2.0 is terrible, but we aren't there yet.
>>48072181It's decent. Not abysmal in any fashion.
>>48072192This is a fair point. Even 0.5 to each of our physical stats makes us a monster-tier genin by canon standards, and assuming we get to the finals we'll have another month of intensive training to adjust a few scores higher.
>>48072748Have an easy reference image for comparison: the average for a named Konoha genin at this point in the story is in red, according to the first Databook. Tsuki's Ninjusu, Genjusu, and Intelligence are solid even compared to prodigies like Sasuke and Neji, and for having dumped Strength she's still stronger than Sakura and Ino already.0.5 - 1.0 each in Taijutsu, Strength, and Speed should carry us through to the finals easy, assuming we don't end up getting killed by Gaara. Anything else prior to that point is icing.
>>48073206Derp. Realized what I did AS it was posting.
>>48073227Thanks for the chart.>>48072748+0.5 to each stat. I can get behind this. As suggested in previous threads I think both Nori & Hinata provide good opportunities to train up our weak stats. Plus we gotta work on upping team-strategy, the Forest of Death ain't gonna be a cakewalk. >>48073206>assuming we don't end up getting killed by Gaarathis brings up an important point: what's The Land of Fire's relationship with it's neighbours? more specifically; will the chuunin exams have participants from as diverse villages as in canon?Hopefully Wargle answers these questions, and on that note: thanks for running m8! I enjoy reading these threads, even if I've yet to arrive on time (the woes of living in a UTC+2 timezone).
>>48073712Anyone can help us with our Taijutsu, but yeah. I can get behind +0.5 to each of our stats with a focus on any of our 4 strengths.
>>48073712Well, we had a Snow ninja in the last round if that's anything to go by. So Konoha's allies like Grass are probably a sure bet.Also UTC here, I feel your pain. I usually show up JUST as things end.>>48073777And what I tried to say is that compared to our cohort our "strengths" are already pretty obscene for a genin, particularly given the fact that we have no genuine "weaknesses". That 1.0 in Strength is the closest Tsuki gets to having a weakness, and it's still better than what half the other girls her age have to work with.

>>48074792I doubt we will get that huge of gains in the time. Getting our stats that high before time skip is very unlikely.

I guess the last month is variable because we don't know who we can get.
>>48075093>>48074887Looking at that the stats may work out better than planed but when Wargle runs again we shall truly see
>>48074792>Flexible-General daily routine (which presupposes we get a healthy 8-hours of sleep everyday; though considering the setting I'm sure we could find ways of shaving a couple hours off w/o incurring penalties)1. Wake-up, do morning shadow-clone meditation (just 15 minutes is enough)2. Brisk breakfast: taking the opportunity to get some social in with whoever's in the dining hall (max. 30 minutes)3. Meet up with Nori & Hinata (either somewhere convenient for all 3, or in front of Ebisu's memorial -- taking ~15 minutes)4. Do daily D-rank mission [for the first month, afterwards it'll become dedicated team-training time] (probably won't take more than 4 hours, depending on the mission ofc -- also the missions provide a great opportunity to bond as a team)5. Taijutsu training with Tenten/whoever-is-willing-to-teach-us (1.5 hours)6. Recuperative meditaiton: this basically entails clearing our mind, and letting the chakra flow as it will (30 minutes)7. Practise hand seals for the sake of finer-detail chakra manipulation (30 minutes)8. Have large late-lunch (1 hour)9. Get some quality time in with Yoru(assisting in design-&-engineering work), or Danzo(learning ninja secrets/history/philosophy). (1 hour)10. Training with Danzo (2 hours)11. Solo-training (1.5 hours)12. Bathe & self-message, get the day's stress out (1 hour)13. Chill out, do something specifically pleasure/fun oriented. Our daily ninja shore-leave. (2 hours)It's not perfect I know: I ain't got a precise map of Konoha to work with so travel time's a bit wonky, and we can, of course, re-arrange the schedule to our desires. But I think it gives a good idea of what I would consider to be a montage worthy (read: EXTREME) training regime.>>48075093I think your suggestion provides a great model for what our general goals for each week should be; while mine covers day-to-day minutiae.
>>48075433I concur. when the next thread begins if you have not posted both of these together then I shall. Excellent set up.
>>48074792>seriously expecting a 22.5 by the time we walk into the examsUnless everyone else in the setting gets a massive boost that's patently absurd. Sasuke only went in with an 18.5 or so going by the databooks. Neji's total was only 21, and he was a goddamn juggernaut compared to anyone without eyehax or a tailed beast.
>>48075528T-thanks senpai~!Wargle'll most likely have us do rolls for how effective and efficient our training proves.Thankfully the combined general-precision of these two (>>48075093 & >>48075433) mandates that Tsuki (as well as Nori & Hinata) improves overall. It's foolproof! Ohohohohohohohohohohohohohohohoho~! Truly befitting a lady of the Norihime clan, ohohohoho~! >>48075633anon, we have eyehax and bijuu-chakra on our team to train with. we also have Danzo as a personal trainer. Tsuki, as a character, has yet to kick things into OVERDRIVE yet so I reckon we could achieve 22.5 (and that's conservative). Plus the time-line differs so everyone's power-level is slightly different to canon.Granted, flying this high will come with it's costs. Orochimaru will almost certainly have eyes and ears stationed in Konoha to monitor the exams, and -- with us blissfully unaware of this -- when we come ohohoho-nauting through the exams we'll definitely pop-up, and stick to, his radar (which'll mean having to stay on-guard against potential body-stealing snekhax).
