Shinobi Quest #22This 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 met her interim instructor and underwent some extensive training. Her sensei should be returning soon, and both her teammates and herself are waiting….
Two months. For two months, you and your teammates had worked hard, doing your best to improve yourselves- the chunin exams were imminent. In a little over a month, it would be time to begin the examinations. You had seen little of your potential competition from Konoha- many of them had been out on some mission or another- and while your team and been upkeeping their fair share of D-ranked missions in Itachi-sensei’s absence, you know many of your fellow Genin teams had progressed to undertaking regular C-ranked missions. While you HAD undertaken a single joint mission with Team Guy, it hardly seemed to count with two Jonin present. You only hope you have the chance to prove yourselves in the upcoming weeks- you will not tolerate falling behind!------------------------------It’s afternoon when Itachi-sensei comes calling; you know he probably had to report to the Fourth, but really, must he keep a lady such as yourself waiting? He must know better than that, surely.Your outfit is pristine- your hair, perfect. It would simply not do to not look your best to meet him after all this time.You sneak down into the foyer- there he is, waiting. How should you greet him?1. Casually. No need for fanfare or ceremony.2. Respectfully. Only appropriate for your sensei. 3. With affection. You missed him!4. With a bit of attitude. He kept you waiting! He deserves it.
>>48215001>3. With affection. You missed him!

3 wins- keeping it within reason, of course.>>48215060feed your drawfags, and they stay happy

>>48215181Tsuki gets caught in the Infinite Tsukuyomi What is her dream world?
>>48215221Nori. In a poofy pretty princess dress at a tea-party with hinata, an affectionate and well-dressed itachi, and tsuki herself in a queenly outfit.if you mean torture-wise?infinite head-pokes
>>48215221Average day to day life, Just normal stuff, No one important to her dying.
>>48215181Any chance of drawings or pastebins getting lewd sometime in the future? Tsuki's cute as hell.
Oh hey! First time catching the thread! Awesome!Alright so this has been bugging me for a while, people talk about summons, but keep saying tsuki needs to find a scroll. From what I remember, that isn't COMPLETELY true, just the normal way, there's a more dangerous method where you perform the summoning contract without a scroll, and get reverse-summoned to the home of the summon family most suited to you, and depending on how they test you and what they think of you, they give you a scroll allowing you to summon a number of their familyJiraiya did this, and wound up at mount myoboku, where he gained the "Noble" toad contract, allowing him to summon any of the toads, he then came back, told orochimaru and tsunade, and they did the same thingDid nobody else mention this or did I just skip over it while reading the archives?
>>48215352You can't prove anything.
“Itachi-sensei! I’m glad you’re back!” you say from the top of the stairs, announcing your presence. You walk down the stairs slowly, making sure to keep composed.You catch his eyes, and he smiles.“Tsuki. Sorry I kept you waiting- both Jiraiya and I spent longer than either of us thought informing the Fourth of every minutiae of our trip.”Jiraiya. Looks like you’ll be skipping the bathhouse this week…“Nonsense, sensei! I’m just happy you’ve returned safely.” you respond, stepping off the stairs onto the main floor. You cast your gaze quickly around the room- Danzo is in the basement, as he always is when people visit. Maru announced Itachi’s visit, but is nowhere to be seen, and Father is, as always, in his study.“You shouldn’t worry so much, Tsuki. I don’t want you to be worrying about me- otherwise, I’m not doing my job as your sensei!” he chuckles.Idiot.“Don’t tell a lady she can’t worry, Mr. Uchiha. That will only make her worry more.” you pout.He just laughs, although his posture is conciliatory.“I trust your training under Anko went well?” he finally asks.It…1. Went well. (Withhold that you didn’t spend all that much time with her)2. Went well, even if you weren’t with her all that much.3. Was somewhat boring without his instruction.4. Went poorly. >Write-in
>>48215419>2. Went well, even if you weren’t with her all that much.
>>48215400Maybe not he, but I can.>>48215419>2. Went well, even if you weren’t with her all that much.
>>482154192. Went well, even if you weren’t with her all that much.
>>48215419>Write-in"I admit that I did not spend all that much time with her. But the time I did spend with her was quite educational. You made a good choice."
>>48215221Why should I answer this when you all have the chance to find out? :'D
>>482154193. Was somewhat boring without his instructionLet's not give off anything, Itachi's smart.
Coming clean about Anko.Writing.
>>48215373well that's potentially useful, I had no idea.Also, first thread I've managed to catch as well, here's hoping it's stellar
>>48215339This is all you get, you heathen.
>>48215479I've been caught, but my question still stands.
>>48215001>2. Respectfully. Only appropriate for your sensei.
>>48215682Jokes on you. ENF is my fetish.
>>48215697>>48215682Question answeredI wouldn't say the chance of getting more is 0%, but don't keep your breath
>>48215742I'd also like to remind you that Tsuki is nowhere near legal in any modern state
>>48215772Not YET.Also ninja village, legal age is a much different thing.
>>48215772old enough to kill, old enough to hold hands
>>48215751I know. I don't actually care. If I want actual smut, I'll just look up porn.
>>48215788pls no>>48215793this>>48215805and this dude speaks reason
“Training went well enough….. Although, I didn’t really spend all that much time with Anko, I admit. The time I did spend with her was educational, though. You made a good choice.” you answer.“I never expected you to spend the whole eight weeks with her, but I’m glad my choice has your approval!” he laughs. “How did the others take it?”“Well, I never really saw Nori, to be honest. We met up for missions, of course, but she had her own training regimen that she was following. Hinata seemed to take to her quickly, though. Even learned how to summon snakes!” you answer.“I figured one of you three might take her up on the summoning contract. I thought it would be you, though, so I suppose your sensei was wrong this time.” he chuckles. “I didn’t turn her down outright, but I don’t like to limit my choices, sensei. Although it’s nice to hear you’re thinking about me…” you say, not trying particularly hard to hide your smug grin.From somewhere in the house, you hear a cough. …...where did that come from?
“By the way, Tsuki, I’ll tell you since I’m here. Nori already knows, since she was with her Father, but I’ve taken a mission for us.” Itachi says, getting back to business.“...a mission? Already? I’m not complaining, but shouldn’t you rest up a bit?” you say with concern.“I’ll be just fine, Tsuki. Besides…. I want to see how much you’ve grown.” he says with a confident smile.Feh, this idiot. He knows how to press your buttons, all right…“Fine, fine. What’s the rank of this mission? C again?” you inquire.“B-rank. We’ll be heading to the Land of Wind- make sure to pack some comfy clothes! Oh, and I hope you don’t mind sand.” he says somewhat casually. “.....B-rank? Are you sure?”You’re actually a little worried….“We’ll be fine. Remember what I said? Don’t worry. Now, I need to get going and tell Hinata before the night is up. Do us all a favor and pack light- we won’t have Guy and Lee to carry our things, this time.” he says, before bidding you good night.You see him out, but you’re still a bit in shock- a B-rank mission? I guess you’ll get to prove yourself after all……You…1. Go talk to Danzo about this.2. Go talk to Father about this.3. Go talk to Maru about this.4. Go pack!
>>48216013>2. Go talk to Father about this.
>>482160131. Go talk to Danzo about this.2. Go talk to Father about this.
>>48216013>1. Go talk to Danzo about this.Sand Land intel hunting go!

>>48216013Land of Wind was where again?
>>48216013>2. Go talk to Father about this.B rank huh? Guys if we have to pull out Stellar for this one to keep the team safe we should. Secrecy won't mean as much if someone dies cause we were holding back.
>>48216060southwest of konohadesert shithole
>>48216013>1. Go talk to Danzo about this.Seek out the one who coughed.
>>48216116We'll be fine without it, besides we have Itachi. We should be able to hide it until the finals no problem
>>482160132. Go talk to Father about this.Time for desert gear
We should spend the night learning that hiding technique where you use a cloak...very useful and a damned desert.
Speaking to Dad and Dad2Writing~
>>48216271Tsuki has 2 dads
>>48216284she used to have three...
>>48216301YOUR SINS!HE DIED FOR THEM!
>>48216301He was the babysitter.
>>48216301AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAShe replaced him, how does this make you feel?
>>48216301Martyr Father best father
>>48216417Pretty much we only knew him for like a few weeks
>>48216301She shall name her first born son after him.
>>48216579/v/ pls go and stay go.
First thing’s first- you go hunt down Danzo.He’s in his room… although you could’ve swore it was him who coughed…You quickly brief him on your new mission and destination.“The Land of Wind… hmm. Pack light. Don’t wear dark clothing, and make sure you have water on hand. Wear some goggles, if you have them. The sand will get into almost anything if you let it. As for the shinobi of Sunagakure… avoid them if possible. The are a bitter and untrustworthy lot, even if the Fourth has sent them diplomatic overtures.” he advises, drinking deeply of his nightly tea. Nodding, you bid Danzo goodnight, and head upstairs to talk to Father.You find him hard at work, as usual, though he is quick to acknowledge your presence. “Heading out again, my dear? Be safe! Those deserts are sweltering, and exhaustion is as big as a danger as anything else. I’ll have Maru prepare you some dried foods to keep your spirits up! As for the people of that country…. I haven’t had much dealing with them. The sand gets into the machinery, rendering it useless- as such they aren’t frequent customers. Let me know if you find anything interesting!” Father exclaims with his usual enthusiasm. With that out of the way, you have some things to consider.Do you have something wish to ask either of these men? (On Topic)1. Yes. >Write-in2. No. Better start packing!
>>48216679>2. No. Better start packing!
>>48216679>1. Yes. >Write-in"Anything in your list of inventions that can help in a desert environment Father? We can invent something together if we need to."
>>48216732>>48216732Lets do it>we end up inventing the gas mask on the spot
>>48216732time to make stillsuits
>>482166792. No. Better start packing!better take sand proof panties.On topic, puppets are machinery right? And they work in the desert.Without advocating puppetery, if we say "liberate" a puppet from the sand, that's a good start for retro engineering.
>>48216679>>48216732Holy shit yes.
>>48216785We Fremen nao.
>>48216679>1. Yes. >Write-inFather is there anyone here besides you, me, danzo and Maru....>Ominous cough is ominous
>>48216794that might actually very well help with a few things but i doubt we'd manage it.
>>48216801It's Jiraiya. He finds it hilarious that one of Itachi's students is crushing on him.
>>48216794>On topic, puppets are machinery right?They aren't
>>48216794Lets do our best to do this, anything to make the leaf stronger
Sounds like it's time for some SCIENCE.Writing.
>>48216885Lets craft some sealed sun goggles...no reflective surfaces...Itachi needs a set too
>>48216794I like the idea of puppeting, I think it's really versatile and being able to make chakra strings seems pretty useful.
>>48216910no, if you put sharingan behing glasses the dumbass coefficient is decupled
>>48216937Lets lie in wait fellow puppetfag when the time comes to decide if we want to we'll all vote
>>48216910Sealed sun goggles with no reflective surfaces that also are attached to a breathing mask to filter out the air?
>>48216944...Itachi is soo good all he has to do is point or look at you I believe was said in canon
>>48216937If we do, we'll need to use it only in our normal persona, not our ROOT one. It does synergize well with our genius specialty though. Maybe wait till chunin until we start?
>>48216937I don't like it because we're already doing some other things and it's a specialisation demanding a lot of investment but I like that their mechanisms are (relatively) simple but work with the chackra strings.If we want to achieve fixed results in some gizmos we could use chakra conducting metal to emulate chakra strings with a lesser liberty on control but requiring less concentration.Essentially, fuck sevromotors, just telekinesic that shit with chakra without thinking too much about how since you just dump chackra into the plug of the gadget.
>>48217028I LIKE the idea, but I think it should wait until chunin at least. Possibly jounin.
>>48217028So what you're saying isWe need to invent bluetooth puppets....that would actually be really fucking good,
>>48216937>puppets >versatile They aren't >>48216960You were told to piss off and given good reasons why puppets were a bad idea. >>48217028It requires more than "a lot", it requires years, even using chakra strings takes forever to learn.
>>48216962indeed....lets make a starlord mask...we can hide it under an anbu style mask nicly too.side note: beylod the grapple launcher. has two wire rolls and hooks provided by a chakra spin powered lock so you can swing around like a boss.
>>48217082The only reasons people ever gave were>You just want to be even more of a special snowflake>They take forever to get good atThe first one doesn't even count as an arguement and the second one is a moot point because everyone already knows and understands that
>>48217125Puppets are lame famalam.
>>48217125Most people were saying that they can't stand up to high-end combat, and while that's true in the anime, this is a quest. Which changes a lot.Also: We are a fucking GENIUS. Sasori ain't got shit on our mechanisms. If we go puppet route, that shit is going to turn into a remote-control steampunk golem pretty fast.
>>48217125They're also incredibly specialized on top of being difficult to learn. There's no min maxing here famalam, you either go all in on puppets or suck shit at them. Also the only justification people had for them was "They're different" which is 10000 times worse then someone saying special snowflake.
“Father, I was wondering… might you assist me with something? I’d like to brainstorm some ideas for making the desert more… hospitable.” you ask.“Hmm? Sure, dear. I wasn’t making much headway with this, anyway. He stands up, and crumples the paper he was working on, throwing it into the fireplace.He takes a seat across from you, leaning on his knees.“Now, what did you have in mind, my darling daughter?”-----------------------[NORIHIME GENIUS]Roll me 1d100.I'll be counting Post numbers 2, 5 and 8.That way you dorks don't triplepost.:'D

>>48217195Well there goes the first come first served rule, Also expect massive amounts of salt if a high roll is rolled and not counted because of stupid rules like that.
Rolled 80 (1d100)>>48217195Starlord mask is a go, naturally stick an ANBU style on over the top to hide what it is. Make sure it seals to the face, no poison or sun glare for us thank you
>>48217215>>48217225>>48217240Eh. Could be better but norihime genius makes that an 83. Not bad.
>>48217125>>48217146lets actually git gud at what we have on our plate (bow, swords, fan, stellar jutsu, and possible summon) before going onto the gadgets. Norihime Puppetry can take place in the post-chunin exam arc when Danzo directly recruits us into ROOT
>>48217271See, I can agree with that.
>>48217195>TriplepostYou know that's a meme right? It's a common complaint that sore losers throw around whenever the first three rolls are low and around the same value.You know, which barely fucking happens.
Rolled 30 (1d100)>>48217195

>>48217215>The reason we wanted to get into them is because we are speced for them and the genius perk only makes this an even better route to goExcept we aren't? Being a genius doesn't translate to "magically good at puppets" What ever you guys fucking think to justify it though.
People, cool it with the puppets and whatnot. We're already spreading Tsuki too thin here. We can't master everything.>>48217285>>48217288Quit rolling too quickly!
>>48217271How about thisNormal Tsuki: Swords, Stellar, and SummonRoot Tsuki: Puppets, Fire/lightning jutsu>>48217290Except for the fact that Wargle told us that we were actually pretty well built for it
>>48217290We're specced for primarily distance combat, which the puppet would help keep our enemies from melee'ing us, and our genius perk makes us better at inventing things, which would apply directly to upgrading the puppet.
>>48217082We're a goddamn genius anon!
Rolled 13 (1d100)>>48217302
random thought on puppetry and clones... could we just make a chakra powered gizmo suit and stuff a shadow clone inside to pilot it? that way we don't have to fuck with chakra strings and any mechanisms (senbon smg etc) on the suit can be activated via the clone.
Norihime Genius: +20 to rolls dedicated towards inventions, creation of new techniques, or adaptations of previously existing techniques or technology. You also love to plan and design things, be it machinery or architecture. Instantly able to identify Norihime inventions. Adds +.0.5 to intelligence.Straight from the pastebin.
>>48217349That's a much bigger chakra drain though
>>48217349Clones are really easy to destroy plus the clone won't be able to do any jutsu since its trapped inside and would just destroy the suit
>Switch up the rolls for once to reduce salt>get more saltAye, aye. 83 w/ bonus is a nice roll, writing.Also cool it with the puppet wars till post thread you dorks
>>48217290Hey anon, we can be magically good at puppets because we're magic ninjas.
>>48217325Tell me three things that justify puppets over other forms of ranged combat. 3
>>48217405Isn't that 93? Due to >>48217215 being roll 2?And switching up roll methods is a great way to get salt.
>>48217372but would it be easier to learn/ do? also another random question is if we can bodyswap with the pilot clone into the gizmo suit if an enemy decides to use the 'geek the mage" strategy on Tsuki.
>>4821740593, even. Cannot read my own posts, now.
>>48217405See>>48217283It's not a real thing. It's just bitching.
>>48217409>>48217415>>48217427Guys, keep the puppet wars till we're done with the story.
>>48217415>We are physically weaker, and puppets rely less on that.>We are a fucking genious and can invent very powerful puppets that can hold multiple weapons>Puppets allow for a wider variety of tactics.>>48217464Fine.
>>48217475>geniousTyping while tired brings shame to my family.
>>48217415>1. Limited to our imagination, we can make it do almost anything making it very versatile>2. Even if its broke we can still use it, Kankuro does this all the time by just moving the head>3. It can be used in both close and ranged>>48217464This is it for me
>>48217349>>48217322>>48217271>>48217475I'm totally down for this, but actually when we become ROOT Tsuki in quest. We are not root Tsuki right now in the quest. Let's address the story at hand, stick to the present goals, and train what we need to master at the moment. IC we're like 11, we can learn puppetry later and Wargle will most likely present the opportunity some threads down the line.
>>48217501Agreed. At BARE MINIMUM we should hold off till after the chunin exams, and in the mean time focus on git gud'ing what we already have practice in. MAYBE try the reverse-summons thing that one anon mentioned earlier.Speaking of which, what summons do you guys think would fit tsuki most? Not gonna lie, hoping we get kickass warrior rabbits.
>>482174751. Can be fixed in the same amount of time, or quicker as learning puppets. 2. We can invent non gimmicky useful weaponry instead of the biggest gimmick in the narutoverse. 3.No they fucking don't, the only ones with "variety" are corpse puppets that are made and used exclusively by one person. Also literally the absurd amount of ninjutsu and genjutsu is vetter for variety. You have no ground to stand puppetfag, go back to your hole
>>48217283Aye. Assuming the dice are based on time, they would use the server clock which would be measuring to the millisecond. Nearly impossible for 3 posts to hit it at the exact same time.
>>48217544quit. the. fucking. puppet. talk.Besides it's not like a fucking bow and arrow is a high tier combat weapon in the anime. It's basically use ninjutsu like a wizard or die.
>>482174971. Same goes for other techniques, literally listed in the genius perk. 2. Utterly pointless, if you the puppeteer are fucking compromised or in close quarters your puppet is useless. 3. They factually cannot be unless you're Sasori. hint,we'll never be fucking sasori
>>48217535Octopi would be pretty good
>>48217544>>48217580Puppet love or hate time is over for now anon. Stop wasting post.
>>48217501yeah, puppets when we go ROOT is good, mostly i just want some form of tech in Tsuki's fighting style otherwise it feels like we're wasting a trait (norihime genius) and character connection (yoru)
>>48217535No lie? I think some type of feline summon would suit our catty af protagonist.
>>48217577>implying I care about the bow anon
>>48217535From the current choices of rabbits, Seiryu, Genbu, Byakko, Suzaku or the snakes, I'd prefer anything but snakes.Snakes aren't bad. I just don't find them as interesting as the others.Plus I really like Suzaku, since the five colors of the Fenghuang match Confucious' 5 Virtues. And those describe Tsuki alright.
...You know, instead of puppets, we could make clockwork golems with pre-programmed instructions powered by stellar chakra.
>>48217598Big cats are pretty cool.
>>48217614plus suzaku's a phoenix right? pretty complementary to our stellar release.
>>48217614The 4 direction beasts/deities are really fucking cool
>>48217633Thats more of a grunt or tool we summon rather then a style of fighting
>>48217633only if we work out a way to make something like a reactor core out of the stuff, right now... stellar chakra doesn't seem to stick around, still something to consider.
>>48217598I've seen cats done to often for it to be a favorite, but I will admit it IS fitting. Then again, so would1: A motherfucking pheonix clan2: A motherfucking dragon clanReally i'd be fine with any of the four beasts except the tortoisesnake, and thata's mainly because I don't think he fits our personality.
>>48217642Yes he is. Though I do like the idea of summoning a fuck-huge turtle.>>48217646I know right?
>>48217614>Seiryu, Genbu, Byakko, SuzakuCan you translate that for the non-weebs?
FINAL SCORE: 93!You have a couple ideas, although some of them would requires more time than you have. The sealed bodysuits have promise, but would require some specialized materials that you don’t have immediate access to.These masks, though…Non-reflective tinted glass lenses, finely grated mouthpiece, optional rebreather… this can be done. Besides, ANBU uses masks- Danzo should have some spares laying around, right? They may be ROOT masks, but that makes little difference to you.You and father work late into the night, with Danzo and him leaving at one point to head to the manufactory to gather additional pieces. But, you have them. These should definitely help with the mission!Acquired 4 [All-Terrain Shinobi Facemasks]!Afterwards you head to bed- you’ll pack in the morning. Itachi-sensei didn’t give a specific time, so you assume he’ll come calling when the time arrives….
>>48217697She, Suzaku is either a girl or very effeminate guy in its usual depictions. Genbu has a snake tail, which is rad as fuck.
>>48217673if we could make stellar chakra linger....imagine the possibilities....Stellar chakra minestellar chakra construct (shaping and forming weapons or objects with it)etc
Now the main question of course is, which is more fitting?Byakko the white tiger, associated with lightningorSuzaku the golden pheonix, associated with fire.Those two fit better then the dragon (water) or the tortoise (earth)>>48217707The four guardian beasts of the cardinal directions.>>48217725WELP! We look badass now.
>>48217707bigass water dragon, big ass turtlesnake, big ass white tiger, big ass phoenix.each associated with a cardinal direction (east, west etc.
>>48217415Well one because it doesn't need to be the sole range weapon at one time. If we also work on our hand-signs we can use offensive jutsu in one hand while we control puppets in the other. We can use the full power of our collective creativity with the puppets, like for example making them with some sort of mirror materiel to make them hard to detect and reflect our chakra like light. We also don't need to be that good at kenjutsu to use Raiga, it's ability to give us control over lightning seems like it would be a better thing at long distance anyways. And we have stellar release to shore up our deficits in speed and strength, especially if we get better with that teqnique. Ok I'm done arguing the point now.
>>48217707>Can you translate that for the non-weebs?Azure Dragon, Black Turtle, White Tiger, Vermilion Phoenix.
>>48217597Puppets are terrible. There are what? 3 puppet users in the whole series and the only 2 that were any good either used corpse puppets or super magical puppets they inherited. We will never have either one of those things.
>>48217773b-but, my special snowflake!
>>48217738>>48217743I just like the idea of summoning a big-ass turtle.
>>48217697Yeah I agree. That would be rad as shit, but I think I prefer the idea of:"SUDDENLY A GIANT GOLDEN FLAMING BIRD!"
>>48217743The tiger. Fur coats are symbols of wealth and royalty.
>>48217773>>48217782guys, qm said to DROP THE FUCKING PUPPET TALK FOR POST-THREAD.
>>48217785Also awesome.I just really like the idea of a huge turtle better, for some reason.
>>48217785I'm kind of on team genbu myself if only because he's cool. Suzaku fits tsuki better honestly
>>48217802>we can get Mitsuru's bitching coat for grown up TsukiIt would be amazing
>>48217809>>48217817I mean, on the one hand, byakko and suzaku match our elemental affinity, whereas genbu is earth, and doesnt.On the other hand, genbu ALSO represents metal, which fits our norihime background well.However you must consider: Would any other summon that comes with genbu be worth anything? Tortoises are kinda slow AF, I think tigers and pheonix's might be better combat partners.
>>48217750I'm trying to imagine Tsukis first summon with any of these.>baby alligator with fake wings>An actual snake that ate a turtle and is shell shaped>white kitty>A rooster on fire
>>48217874We'll have to see what they'll offer. Right now we're just going off of what animal they are and what element they represent in mythology, which won't necessarily equal what they rep in Shinobi Quest.
ALL ABOARD THE BIRD SUMMON TRAINHEAR ME OUT, CHECK THIS SHIT WE COULD SUMMON.>FLY AS FUCK PEACOCKS>SMOOTH AF SWANS>BIG BOY SUMMON IS SUZAKU THE GOLDEN PHOENIX ON PAR WITH GAMABUNTA AND NAGACHOO CHOO MOTHERFUCKERS, BEST GIRL AND SUMMON COMING THRU
>>48217874Is it wrong that I want to be greedy and summon all 4 which somehow at the end of the quest allows us to summon Kohryu/Huang Long?
>>48217874well genbu does have a snake for a tail, so we might get snakes and tortoises... though... these are ninja turtles were talking about here... oh goddammit the lower tier summons for genbu better not be the tmnt...
I still say suzaku.No ninja is gonna want to fuck with pic related.Also let's be honest here, having a flyer to carry us would be useful as all fuck.
>>48217914A Peacock summon would be perfect for Haku.
>>48217916well sadly we can only have 2 contracts...so yeah sorry homie
>>48217938>"WHO THE FUCK JUST CALLED ME A ROOSTER?! THAT'S IT, EVERYTHING BURNS NOW!"
>>48217947Tigers and Rabbits anon
>>48217947>Norihime genius ourselves mechanicals arms to replace our legs so we can get more summons.just kidding of course
>>48217914>>48217938>>48217934>>48217916>>48217954>>48217947>>48217968Reminder that bird summon = best summon
>>48218001YES! Geese motherfucking Howard!
Guys, we're at 201 replies already.
>>48217947Need byakko and suzaku. Fire and lightning mothafuckaOh god what if sage mode gives us a giant flaming chakra peacock tail like suzaku's?
>>48217996>>48217978>>48217968>>48217954best bird confirmed
>>48218031KNEEL PEASANTS! KNEEL BEFORE MY MAJESTY!

>>48218031>>48218057>>48218072>I'm sorry I can't hear you over how FUCKING FABULOUS I look.
You sleep in a little, to counter staying up as late as you did last night….But it doesn’t seem to matter- even when waking up at four hours after dawn, Itachi hasn’t arrived. You don’t mind, though, as it gives you plenty of time to pack as instructed. You pack as light as you can, avoiding too many amenities. Loose, lightly colored clothing. Not exactly your style, but better to be comfortable in the heat. The sand would ruin your nicer clothes, anyway.As promised, Father had Maru prepare some travel food- and as usual, she made far too much. Thankfully, you can dole it out to the rest of the team- you doubt Nori thought that far ahead, and Itachi-sensei probably can’t cook.As the afternoon arrives, it brings the rest of your team to your residence. It occurs to you, somewhat at the last second, that this is the first time either Nori or Hinata has seen the estate- although time really hasn’t permitted it.“Yooooo! Princess! Nice digs! The Hokage residence has nothing on your place!” a voice echos in from the foyer.Could she be any less couth? That girl…You bring your bags with you, meeting your team. Nori seems to be everywhere at once, investigating everything in sight.“Nori, please don’t break anything. We’re guests….” Hinata chatizes Nori.You can’t help but laugh a little at them both. Where before you’d be annoyed, their antics have definitely grown on you…
you know what we must do anons...the time of ninja has passed. The New Era has come Just Carve a leaf symbol on their helmets
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pm5VP3of-dAAs you gather, Itachi addresses you.“Ladies, we’re heading into potentially hostile territory. Our mission is two-fold- first we carry an invitation. If we can deliver it, wonderful. If not, it does not affect the success of our mission. Think of it as a side-objective.” Itachi explains“A set of ruins as been discovered within the vast wastes of the Land of Wind. Various archeological societies are vying to discover it’s secrets- and the Capital is no different. Apparently, Suna shinobi flat out refuse any missions regarding the ruins- all the more for us, then. Our proprietor is to meet us on the border of the Land of Rivers and the Land of Wind. We set out now, as the trip will take most of the day. We’ll reach the border by morning, and the deserts by early evening. I hope to avoid too much travel in the direct sunlight….”It is at this point, you produce the masks. You explain their function, and show everyone how they work.“Tsuki-hime, this is amazing! When did you make this?” Hinata asks.“Last night. Just another wonder brought to you by the Norihime Corporation! Ohohohohoho!~” you exclaim with pride.“These will be a great boon, Tsuki. Thanks for thinking ahead!” Itachi-sensei praises you.“Princess, this makes me look cool, right?” Nori says, donning the mask.You’re glad they appreciate your hard work- you hope to make this as painless as possible.“Now, it’s time we set out. The Land of Wind has many unique dangers besides the terrain, so we’ll be going over them on the trip. This is a true B-rank mission, so we must remain vigilant of all potential dangers. Understand?” Itachi dictates.“Yes, Sensei!” the three of you respond.
>>48218383YES, YEESS! Technology will outpace the shinobi! Armor and weapons that can be mass produced and actually matter in high-level ninja combat! We need to get a hold of some chakra armor. If only we had a power source for some weaponry. Hmm, wait a minute, large amounts of energy, accessable everywhere, passively gathered and stored for useage... Do you think natural energy could power a laser gun? If so, Orochimaru has a very convienient method of gaining as much as you want on demand.
>>48218383>>48218476Norihime Private Security Equipment>New Model Mask (the one we made+night vision)>Chakra shield on left arm>Automatic Senbon launcher as primary>All Body Armour>One of these >>48217092>Explosive tags
>>48218408>Dune Track....>Daughters of powerful houses heading into the desert...>Sensei with crazy eyes....>I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.Im so fucking ready
The trip through the Land of Rivers is uneventful- just as you remember it. Barring the bad memories the place invokes, it seems free of any crime or banditry. Or maybe, they know you were coming? Hard to say. Itachi-sensei rattles off the dangers of the Land of Wind:First, the environment: Blistering days, Freezing nights. Wicked sandstorms that can tear the flesh and blind the eyes. The sand beneath your feet can suck you beneath it, never to be seen again.Then, the flora. He lists off several varieties of poisonous plants native to the region- some of the nastier ones paralyze their victims instead of killing them outright.Finally, the fauna- scorpions, snakes, birds of prey. Sandworms… wait.“Sandworms? What is a sandworm?” you ask, breaking yourself out of the daze you were in.“Obviously it’s a worm that likes the sand, princess. Pay attention!” Nori scolds. Seems she was actually interested in these mundane dangers.“I wonder what kind of snakes populate the desert? It’d certain be nice to know…” Hinata muses, looking out the window of the carriage you four are taking to the border. “A sandworm, Tsuki, is a giant tunneling worm that may or may not inhabit the deserts of the Land of Wind. Some call them superstition, but the locals maintain they exist, and prey on hapless travellers.” Itachi explains.Right, so some local myth. He certainly had you going for a while there….Do you have any questions regarding the mission?1. Yes. >Write-in2. Nope. Onwards to the Land of Wind!
>>48218775Oh fuck off back to /lgbt/
>>48218740I want Tsuki to end up going on a hallucinatory spirit quest.

Yurofriend here, I have been awake for the last 22 hours and I've caught my second wind. I won't let shit taste reign no matter the cost.
>>48219033Who are you hoping win the Tsukibowl?
>>48219056Yuritease with tenten then, pick shino.tenten is already getting a bit of screentime but shino is underappreciated
“So sensei, this is a B-rank mission.” you say, mainly making conversation to keep yourself awake. It was getting dark, but you needed to stay awake for a while longer.“Yes, it is.” he responds. “Any mission within another Shinobi nation will automatically be classified as such, and the dangers present within the Land of Wind certainly don’t hurt. We also have reason to believe other Shinobi may be present- not necessarily in a antagonistic sense, but you can never be too careful. These ruins are somewhat of a hot commodity.” he explains.“Yes, and what about these ruins? What do we know?” you inquire further.“We personally don’t know very much- the Capital was certainly mum on the subject, through I expect our patron will explain it further if you’re curious. The environment there preserves things from our ancient history- there’s no telling what knowledge they’ve uncovered.” Itachi responds.“Any… treasure? Artifacts?” you say with a hopeful voice.Itachi laughs. “Looking to expand your souvenir collection? Nori says you take one home after every mission.”You grumble.“I’m sure there are things there of great historical significance, although again, the Capital was silent on such a thing- not part of our agreement, no doubt. The historians won’t take kindly to a shinobi breaking valuable things, I’d wager.” he says, voice still full of laughter.

Eventually, you dose off. Itachi seems just fine- although you do hope he gets some sleep.---------------You wake to the early morning sun and a stopped cart. Itachi-sensei isn’t here- he seems to be talking to someone outside. This is probably the border, then.As the others wake, you hop out of the carriage, and put on your pack containing your provisions. You stretch and generally just attempt to get the blood flowing- you have a long day ahead of you. Eventually, Itachi returns to the group.“Alright, we’re cleared to enter. The carriageman will be leaving, so make sure you have everything. According to the guardsmen, our contact shouldn’t be too far past the border.The four of you head past the border gate- a large wooden gate built over a natural cliffside. It looks mostly ceremonial- it isn’t exactly a defensible position.Sure enough, not even 15 minutes past the border, you spy a man leaning against the outside of the pass, smoking a cigarette. “Dr. Kosugi?” Itachi says, greeting the man.“In the flesh. You must be the Shinobi from Konoha then? Excellent. Sorry to call you all the way out here, but the locals aren’t particularly helpful.” He turns from Itachi to the three of you.“Hey there! I’m Lemeza Kosugi. Archeologist. I plan to give these ruins a thorough shakedown- and I’ll be needing your backup, if not your help. What do you say?”He seems to be asking for your acceptance- a bit odd, since you’re already here. Dr. Kosugi is a rugged man, older than Itachi for sure, but not as old as your father. He seems an agreeable sort.You…1. Greet him enthusiastically. 2. Greet him professionally.3. Give minimal greeting.4. Don’t say anything.
>>482194012. Greet him professionally.

You bow slightly. “I’m Tsuki Norihime. Nice to meet you, Dr. Kosugi.” you say.Nori and Hinata follow suit. “Please, girls. Dr. Kosugi is my father- Lemeza is fine. Also, did you say Norihime? I’ll be twice damned.” he says, looking shocked.He pulls out his pack of cigarettes- the box is black, with the lid bearing the white norihime crown. At this point you aren’t even shocked.“Who’dve thought. Well, I won’t pry into your business.” Lemeza says, turning back to Itachi.“We should set out soon- the path through the cliffsides is a tough hike, but it’s better that we get to the desert around the late afternoon.”You all nod in agreement, and set off.The terrain here is starkly different- and you haven’t even reached the desert. Everything seems so rocky and bare; why do people stay here? It seems wholly unpleasant.It’s certainly hot as well, but you are all dressed for it- this is just the beginning, anyway.Lemeza and Itachi make small talk as the march goes on, but it’s not particularly interesting.You realize he probably knows quite a bit about these ruins, however.Shall you talk to Lemeza?1. Yes. >Write-in2. No, focus on the trek.
>>482197631. Yes. >Write-inhis relation to our family.

“So, Lemeza. I imagine you probably know everything there is to know about these ruins, right?” you ask, legitimately curious.“Well, there’s still a lot we don’t know. Much of our early history is shrouded in myth- and the myths don’t always agree. So, we investigate as much as possible to learn what we can. The history is everywhere, if you know where to look. As for these ruins? They’re certainly ancient. Building materials match what is common in the area- meaning they were built most likely by the people who would later inhabit Sunagakure. It’s chock full of traps too, which are very well preserved. The strangest thing about them, though, are the murals. They all involve trees. In the middle of the desert. Really makes you wonder.”Lemeza continues pondering this, though most of his conjecture is either beyond you or just beyond your interest.You eventually wrest the conversation back from him.“Seems like you know of my family. My father is a person very interested in relics of the past, as well.” you say.“Good to hear! Honestly, I’d only heard the name while working in the Capital- and these cigs are pretty good. If he’s a man after my own heart, I’d be happy to work with him if he’d fund an expedition or two.” he says, lighting up another black cigarette.“He most definitely would. Have your team send information to the household, and I’ll see that it gets to him. You should have a visitation request shortly after, I’ll bet.” you confirm.“Fine by me! Once we’re done here, I don’t exactly have another dig lined up, anyway. I’m sure we can bond over our shared love of history.” Lemeza agrees.
Everyone continues making small talk over the trek, which, as predicted, takes the better part of the day.As the sun begins to dip low in the sky, the cliffside crags seem to spill away, into a great yellow ocean of sand.“We’re making good time.” Lemeza says, surveying the surroundings from under the safety of his hat. “Once it’s starts getting a bit lower, we’ll head out. Worst thing we’ll run into is some Suna folk- the critters only come out at night, and the sandworms during the day. Mostly.Again, with the sandworms.“Are those even real?” you question.“Princess here is afraid of the sandworms.” Nori chimes in.“I believe they are. Too many things just disappear during the high sun. Granted, people may get lost and die out there, but usually, you’d find bones, or something. The locals certainly believe in them, in any rate. One more reason not to be out and about in the middle of the day."
Taking all bets! How long before a sandworm shows up!
>>48220233>implying a Sandworm hasn't nabbed Wargle already
>>48220267I AM the sandworm, anon.
>>48220300Oh fuck its the dopplegangers again!
It’s… quite hot. Hotter than it was before. You can see the air shimmering more or less all around you.Hinata, who’s perched next to you, is looking across the sand with her Byakugan. “See anything?” you inquire.“Sand. Sand in hills, sand in valleys. Sometimes, the wind kicks it up.” she quips, scanning the horizon. Is Nori’s sarcasm rubbing off on her?“Although, I’ve seen a few lizards and snakes, but only for a few seconds.” she says, lightening up almost immediately.Lemeza and Itachi continue chatting, whilst Nori just sits, grumbling.After a few hours, it begins to get darker. You can already feel it begin to cool; although not by that much.At this, Lemeza announces it’s time to resume the trek.Thankfully, after about an hour the heat returns to a tolerable level- it’s been taking all your restraint not to just drain your waterskin.You’re also quite thankful Lemeza seems to know where he’s going, because you’re following rather blindly at this point. You’d need to rely on Hinata to navigate you back… After a few more hours of travel, it’s gotten entirely dark- and very cold. The moon is growing in the sky, it’s pale light illuminating the entire desert. It’s actually quite beautiful….
It’s as you look on that Hinata makes an announcement.“Party of five, coming from the west of us.” she says, Byakugan at the ready. Just how long has she had them active?“Probably Suna folk. Most of them know me, so it shouldn’t be an issue.” Lemeza says. You aren’t quite convinced by that- and soon enough, you hear the thundering of animals on sand.Five people, atop large furry beasts- camels, you’d guess- stand near the group.“Lemeza. You hired Shinobi from outside Suna?” a feminine voice asks.“Yeah, I did. Most of the others have as well. We asked you folk first, but you refused.” Lemeza answers, rather non-chalantly. “We warned you and the others. Those ruins aren’t to be disturbed.” the woman says.“I don’t believe in curses, Temari. I told your father that, too. He certainly didn’t forbid us from investigating.” Lemeza responds. “He’s letting you fools go to your death, Lemeza. We haven’t survived in this desert as long as we have by picking around in places better left alone.” she says, very matter of factly. The woman hops off the camel- she’s surprisingly short. She rolls back her hood- to reveal a youthful face. Probably about your age.“We won’t stop you Lemeza. But we aren’t going to save you, either.” she finishes.He shrugs. “The Kazekage said the same thing. I’d like to believe we won’t need saving.”This conversation seems to be going nowhere…However, these people ARE from Suna….

“Feh, fine Lemeza. Know that if you die in there, we won’t be collecting your corpses.” the girl says, and starts walking back to her camel.“Wait. You said the Kazekage is your father?” Itachi says, digging around in his bag.“Yes, that is correct. Do you have some business with me?” she says, only half turned around.“My name is Itachi Uchiha. I bring an invitation from our Hokage to your Kazekage.” he says, presenting the invitation.“...an invitation? For what purpose?” she says, looking at the envelope without taking it.“To… hold a joint chunin examination. To foster and renew relations between our two villages.” Itachi says.What? That isn’t exactly what you were expecting…This girl, Temari, starts laughing.“That’s rich, coming from some Uchiha. Your village is slowly strangling ours. I should just rip this up right now……” she says while walking towards Itachi’s outstretched hand.“.....but I won’t. I’ll take it to my father, and he can rip it up. Diplomatically.” she finishes, taking the note from Itachi.“I thank you, daughter of the Kazekage.” Itachi says, bowing his head.“It’s Temari.” she responds flatly. “Oh, and Lemeza, the ruins are to the north of here, in case you forgot. You were starting to your sense of direction.”With that, she hops on her camel, and the five of them take off into the night.
>>48220739Yeah well I will enjoy the slow suffocation of your people. Cunt.

Once the dust from their departure clears, Lemeza lights another cigarette. “You were lost?” Hinata asks, sounding quite concerned.“No, I wasn’t. I’ve been smoking these things non-stop for an hour, and figured if I started veering of course, she’d show up to gloat or warn me again. Your sensei here mentioned he needed to see a Suna shinobi, and they’ve been sending Temari to warn me off every time I make the return trip. Their Kazekage, Rasa, isn’t nearly as superstitious as the rest, but he acts in accordance to his village’s wishes.” Lemeza says, taking a fresh drag off of his lit cigarette.“Pretty good there, doctor.” Nori says, patting him on the back. “Toying with a girl’s heart to further our goals? You’d fit right in at home.” This sends Lemeza into a coughing fit, and Nori teasing him relentlessly over it.When they calm down, the journey continues. Heading due north, it’s about another hour and half before you can see them- the ruins.“This place have a name, doc?” Nori says, surveying the ruins encampment from atop a nearby dune.“No, not yet. Once we figure it’s secrets out, we’ll worry about naming it. Getting a bunch of people to agree on something as esoteric as a name might as well be a pointless venture anyway.” Lemeza says, laughing at his own joke.You can see plenty of lights burning away in the encampment below- tents dotting the sand near the entrance. Or, you should say entrances- it seems teams have cleared away as much sand as possible, exposing multiple entryways.“Come, everyone.” Lemeza says, heading down into the camp. “We’ll eat and make camp for the night. It’s better to spend the day in the ruins- not nearly as hot. We can warm ourselves by the campfire at night.The five of you head down into the campsite….
>>48220837what I remember of it was more political/ninja business I thought, but whatever, if it is trade related then maybe they can be the first step on the road of Tsuki's trade empire.

>>48221044>>482209741.Sounds lame and chakra wasting inducing2.Puppets are lame3.We can't master four different weapons. We're already stretching it as is4.Golems can break easily with a right hit
>>48221010Thanks for running dude.
>>48221044Any sort of guard duty? Stick a few ninja on the roof, then WAR GOLEMS.Need to swamp an enemy in warriors? WAR GOLEMS.Suppressing a riot? WAR GOLEMS.
>>48221010Cheers Wargle. NOT!Shai Hulud when? And if so will we find NOT!spice? And if so will it boost Tsuki's powers?
>>48221068The idea isn't to learn puppetry with a giant chunk of metal, it's to make an army of disposable soldiers that can take jobs instead of normal ninja.Obviously there will be some jobs they can't, given their giant hunk of metal nature, but if we get into a war they'll be invaluable.
>>48221098It's outlandish and I doubt we have the technology for it. I say we should focus more on the fly machine first.
>>48221121You doubt we have the technology for steampunk but not for a giant flying steampunk fortress?Also:>OutlandishGet the fuck out of here with that weak shit.
>>48221093Much debate. I try to include homages at best, as if it's entirely a rip-off character, it loses a bit of interest for me.Lemeza is the only direct rip of a character, though I've given him a more visible personality.
Thanks for running Wargle, whens the next thread do you think?>>48221044Before we do that we need to secure both a power supply and a method of control...could likely go for a remote operator approach, long range chakra receivers?
>>48221163Or we could create basic VI
>>48221068So lets not learn two of them, fuck bows and fans
>>48221226Fuck golem/puppet shit. Puppetfags are autistic.
>>48221226I'm a fan of not using the bow or puppets.
>>48221241Actually they've made several pretty good arguments and the combat style IS supported by our stats.
>>48221264>Several good arguments>le Iron Man xD>I wanna use dead bodies!!>muh rangeGood arguments there.
>>48221264They've made absolutely 0 that haven't been refuted. Don't try and shill
Artfag here, just throwing out, I think we should bail on the bows, keep the fan as a side weapon/more personal touch (plus no one knows its a weapon). Git good with swords since we have the toys.Puppets im on the fence, great fun to draw and design, somewhat fun to use. While I agree Tsuki has a natural inclination to get good with them, i'd only really support it if we could bag up a teacher...Ask daddy Danzo for his advice on it. See what he says, we can then draw a line under this. Either way not happening before the exams, maybe the time skip?
>>48221287Why even amuse the the notion, the time spent learning puppets could be spent perfecting what we're good at all ready. puppetry is not additive to our skills.
>>48221287Anon, I know it's up to you what you draw but puppets will be a nuisance and I generally don't like them. I rather compromise and be a toy tinker.
>>48221282>>48221286The puppet covers our weak melee combatYes it would take a while to learn but so would the bow and fan, which we basically never useWe're rich as fuck and can easily afford things to modify the puppetsWe get bonus's to inventing shit which would allow us to make some really awesome puppetsWe can always switch locations with a puppet if we have oneThe qm has already told us that our stats DO in fact benefit the puppet combat styleWe actually learn things pretty damn fast, a max of 5 and we go up in increments of .5 every couple threads? We could nearly max puppetry with a single montage if we felt like it
>>48221282Literally every time, and then they act like they've never been refuted on the exact same points before. The last thread they were brought up they tried to defend it with "they're different" fucking disgusting.
>>48221287Puppets suck. Not a fan of the bow either but I don't hate it.Swords might be neat because they're literally a legendary weapon, and the fan is signature.Though you may now be accused of using your position as art fag to influence choices and REEE'd at.
I find it hilarious that the anti-puppet fags main arguement is basically "I dont like them"
Totally getting HMQ vibes in here.... how nostalgic
>>48221322Or.. we could cover up our weak melee combat by investing the skills and time into it, instead of puppets.The fan is very Hime. Don't diss it.
>>48221350Crusty isn't dead right? I miss him.Fucking druids.I vote phasing.
>>48221322We've actually used the fan for no lethal takedowns.
>>482213221. So does shoring up our melee and melee stats, which is easier to learn. We can also use other ninjutsu 2. Not nearly as long, nowhere close in fact. Puppetry is learned over years. 3. We can do that with literally anything else. 4. We can also improve techniques, like othr kinds of jutsu. 5. Totally and utterly irrelevant. 6. The numbers, they also support what we're learning now, so that's a non argument. 7. That's bullshit, we were increasing minor stats. This is a completely new thing.
Actually given how unique puppetry is, it WOULD make a fairly decent additional layer of seperation between our normal persona and our ROOT persona.Either way its pretty clear nobodies opinions will be changed by now, so lets just wait and see what the votes say.>>48221363Pretty sure he's recovering from the aftereffects of ass cancer.no that is not a joke. I'm fairly certain he actually had cancer in his ass.
>>48221338No, puppetfags only argument is "They're different" piss the hell right off.
>>48221380Yep puppetfags will continue to have shitty opinions and will never be swayed by facts. It's fucking sad.
Puppetfags pls, puppetfags pls fagspls. Just contain yourselves.
>>48221399Dude, don't be needlessly dickish. Just let the votes tell when it comes up.Anyways, onto a differant topic: Byakko's tigers or Suzaku's birds, which would make for the better summons contract
>>48221405Fuck you mate. I'm tired of hearing how my super special snowflake idea and techniques is objectively shit. reee
God, I wish Wargle never allowed the option of puppets.
>>48221416From what Wargle has said on twitter, it's not the animals. It's literally the deities in tinier forms
>>48221337I figured since i was mentioning I just wanna draw them I should come out and say it rather than not ><U
>>48221416Birds all the way mugga.Need that sad sage mode plumage.>>48221425>objectivlyMugga, fuck you. That word belongs on tmblr and tmblr alone.>>48221426even if he didnt anons would find SOMETHING to argue over. Just be glad its not waifu wars.>>48221447dragon is water nature though
>>48221463>sad*SweetGod I don't how I typo'd that so bad...
>>48221426Every fucking time I wish he runs I wish that were true. >>48221447Not sure what you mean to add to that conversation with one word. >>48221457just draw them if you want. just don't shill for awful ideas. >>48221463Nigger, Objectively is a fucking real word, sorry you can't handle it.
>>48221438...WELL THAT'S GON' BE A THING.
>>48221416Tiger. I'm worried if we go bird we'll start getting lost in the mess that is genjutsu.Tiger is powerful and will shore up our weaknesses.
>>48221493Burd is wind and fire ninjutsu primarily.
>>48221478It's also abused like a ten cent whore. Are you a fucking robot? No? Then you're not being fucking objective, and using the word to try and sound smarter just makes you look like a prick. I don't even like the idea of having puppets because that shit gets rolled out in every goddamn naruto quest and story and is starting to get as old as haremfics, and I STILL want to punch your teeth in for using objectively that way.
>>48221498I keep seeing Peacocks. That screams genjutsu.>>48221498And tiger would be what? Fire and ?
>>48221457You can draw them if you want. You are the nice drawfag that drew our Tsuki and I thank you for that.
>>48221500Well, I was kind of using it ironically as I was making fun of puppetfags. But get triggered by a word I guess, have fun with that.
>>48221504Fire and Lightning iirc Dragon is water lightning and Genbu the turtle is water earth.
>>48221504Tiger is lightning. The peacocks thing is mostly just because their tails look SWAG AS FUCK and fit with the ojou theme.>>48221507>I was using it ironically>triggeredDude, go the fuck back to tumbler. We don't want your kind here.
>>48221512So tiger matches our elements? Could we do our Stellar release with Tigers then?
>>48221513>le ebin tumblr boogey man XDDD pfffffffft
>>48221527Wow. Such a marvelous and well crafted retort. My soul has been shattered by the ferocity of your lashing tongue and razor sharp wit. I will now crawl back into my pathetic hole in the ground and cry myself to sleep....In case you couldn't tell, that was sarcasm. I know some people have trouble interacting with others, so don't worry, you're just special.
>>48221544You're not exacting acting smooth and witty either, Anon.I swear anime-theme quests always brings out and attracts the worst.
>>48221544Jesus dude pulling out all the stops, just call me an autistic nigger and go to sleep. You prancing la la girly man
>>48221552A fucking men
>>48221553*clears throat* I'll have you know I graduated top of my class in the Navy Seals, and I've been involved in numerous secret raids on Al-Quaeda, and I have over 300 confirmed kills. I am trained in gorilla warfare and I'm the top sniper in the entire US armed forces. You are nothing to me but just another target. I will wipe you the **** out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on this Earth, mark my ****ing words. You think you can get away with saying that **** to me over the Internet? Think again, ****er. As we speak I am contacting my secret network of spies across the USA and your IP is being traced right now so you better prepare for the storm, maggot. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your life. You're ****ing dead, kid. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can kill you in over seven hundred ways, and that's just with my bare hands. Not only am I extensively trained in unarmed combat, but I have access to the entire arsenal of the United States Marine Corps and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable ass off the face of the continent, you little ****. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little "clever" comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your ****ing tongue. But you couldn't, you didn't, and now you're paying the price, you goddamn idiot. I will **** fury all over you and you will drown in it. You're ****ing dead, kiddo. >>48221552Tis' the nature of 4chan, pissing contests like this just kinda happen everywhere on here, but the quests usually get the brunt of it. Moreso in quests based off a setting with an established fanbase.
>>48221520No idea, I'd err on the side of no
>>48221567The fucking copypasta... hahahashit I don't even care anymore.
>>48221567*Golf claps*Good show old boy, vintage copypasta that.
>>48221568I dono, I'd hope we could barter with the tigers, >Oh-ho-ho~Stellar release in return for a contract/service with the Norihime family.
>>48221579The power of stupid but somehow funny shit from the internet saves the day again! XD
>>48221594Truly, there is no greater purpose in life, thenCAPITALISM!
>>48221612...Drawfag, if you're still here, you should ABSOLUTELY draw tsuri doing this exact pose
>>48221630That's actually an excellent idea...
Reminder we need Tsuki to develop a bad ass combo to do with a Shadow clone creating the myth of her twin and so she can have this theme.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6-gBwTi39kIUsing one another as launch pads, weaving wire between the two, endless substitutions, clone poping into Stellar Chakra.
>>48220119>They all involve trees. In the middle of the desert.Oh fuck if this is what I think it is...
>>48221380Some sort of autoimmune disease, actually.
>>48221507>>48221513Objectively the worst.
>>48221520>>48221513>>48221504>>48221463Avian contract all the way. Even if peacocks are genjutsu-based, genjutsu from summons is legitimately powerful if I remember the series correctly and we have 0 genjutsu options otherwise. It'd be nice to have some flexibility.Plus, the contract would probably include multiple types of birds other than peacocks. There will probably be mid-tier birds we can summon that are ninjutsu or utility-based with the big badass Suzaku at the top of the summon roster.so, bird contract pros:>Flexibility>Fits our ic personality>Variability in use and talents of creatures summoned>Suzaku>Combines well with stellar release>Potential best sage mode>probably will teach us mad flashy ninjutsu>Isn't incompatible with lightning element eitherCons:>Probably brings 0 taijutsu to the table>You'd have to choose between birds and tigers
We should go full Sasaki Kojiro and develop a signature kenjutsu technique/form based on the movement of our bird of paradise/tropical bird summons in flight. Combine with stellar chakra, the kiba swords, and potential best sage mode and we've got an ultimate technique.>Watch closely, peasant! Today you witness Konoha's most beautiful technique, count your blessings that it is the last thing you see! ohohohoho!>Stellar Release: Norihime-Style, Sapphire Dance of the Celestial Phoenix!
