Shinobi Quest #31This 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 up with her teammates and co-conspirators, in order to go over the plan before the first part of the chunin exams. After giving the plan a verbal once over, and teasing Shikamaru, Tsuki and Company met up with Neji and Sai, who introduced their partner for this round of exams: Kabuto Yakushi.After a bit of verbal sparring, the genin were summoned inside the Academy building for the test, proctored by the frightening jonin, Ibiki. Seats were randomly assigned; this ended up being beneficial for Tsuki’s neighbor, Sasuke, who proceeded to copy her entire test.Tsuki, of course, passed the exams with little issue, whilst many genin were eliminated by Ibiki’s strict proctoring.Upon the reveal of the final question- a stupid and wasteful question, according to Tsuki- many genin teams opted to leave when faced with the threat of never being able to participate again.Once all exams were collected, however, Ibiki revealed his falsehood- there was no such restriction. It was simply a test of his own to weed out those unwilling to face the unknown head on.Even more aggravated, Tsuki heads out into the hall, having passed her first round of examinations….
You hang around just long enough for Nori and Hinata to appear- they seem in much better spirits.“We passed! We did it, Tsuki-hime!” Hinata celebrates.“Yeah, we did it. Even if I only answered one question.” Nori says, scratching the back of her head.What? Wasn’t Ino supposed to help her….?
>>48874838Awww yis shinobi questan time
>>48874838It's been fifty-one minutes you liar.
Ino's got some 'splaing to do
>>48874877Blame the second worst thing to have "kyu" in it's name. Pic only tangentially related
>>48874838I hope Ino is okay.She doesn't deserve to suffer.
> Wargle triggering 4chan's paranoiaThis is going to be an interesting exam.
You’re conflicted. You saw Ino passed out during the exam- had something gone wrong? Enitrely possible.Had she and Shikamaru gone against your deal? You doubt Ino would do such a thing to you, especially without provocation, but….While the symphony of Choji’s feast unfolds in the background, you wonder how you should proceed…1. Confront Ino and Shikamaru about this. They went back on your deal!2. Obviously something happened- let it slide. You won’t help them in the second round now, though.3. Obviously something happened- it isn’t their fault. You decide to help them in the second round anyway.
>post yfw it turns out Ino just forgot
>>48874838Oh boy, Non-Lewd Genin Quest. Too bad I can't participate tonight. Have a Hanabi for luck.
>>48874968>3. Obviously something happened- it isn’t their fault. You decide to help them in the second round anyway.
>>48874968>1. Confront Ino and Shikamaru about this. They went back on your deal!I wanna hear their side of the story
>>48874968>1. Confront Ino and Shikamaru about this. They went back on your deal!But not so far as to go back on our deal before we figured out what happened first.
>>48874968Can we just talk to them before assuming? Is that an option?
>>48874968>2. Obviously something happened- let it slide. You won’t help them in the second round now, though.
>>48874968>1. Confront Ino and Shikamaru about this. They went back on your deal!We want details
>>48874968>1. Confront Ino and Shikamaru about this. They went back on your deal!Not necessarily going against the deal, but talk to them about it.Let's hear their side first before we make any rash decisions.
>>48874968My guess here is that contact with Noris mind was painful due to residual nine-tails chakra
>>48874968>1. Confront Ino and Shikamaru about this. They went back on your deal!
>>48874968>2. Obviously something happened- let it slide. You won’t help them in the second round now, though.Fine then. Our team will just trailblaze threw it then.
>>488749684. Confront Ino and Shikamaru about this, Obviously something happened.
>>48874968> Ask Ino what happened.>>48874968
>>488749681. Confront Ino and Shikamaru about this. They went back on your deal!Don't be rude, just ask what happened.
>>48874968>3. Obviously something happened- it isn’t their fault. You decide to help them in the second round anyway.;_;
>>48875003Tsuki's not really in a great mood right now- "calmly asking why the plan didn't work" isn't really on her mind. She's either waving it off, or getting grumpy.
>>48875053Well that's a bit of a cop-out. Most of the other anons here are thinking along a similar path of mine, too.desu it's the egg
>>48875053Is Itachi-sensei going to wish us luck on the Second Exam? I miss him.
>>48875053Fine, then let's grumpily ask her what the hell happened.we should have just had Shikamaru use his shadow jutsu on her and right out the answers for her.
>>48875079No. It's being angry about the test being bullshit.
>>48875090Or we could have had Choji eat in morse code to tell her what the answers were.
Confronting Ino and Shikamaru- writing.
>>48875114>choji knowing any of the answers.
>>48875143It's been forever since I've seen the Chunin Exam Arc- but didn't Shikamaru answer the bare minimum in the first exam?
Yaaaayyy its time for da cutest liddle gourl in da exams
>>48875187He had Ino fill out his sheet, though he definitely solve the questions if he wasn't so lazy
>>48875225Uncle Paul, how's your friend Jerry doing?It's pretty weird that there's a Naruto Quest going on where an O&A character shows up.
>>48875079As we play tsuki and develop her character, her responses are going to grow from that. If we had been playing her more level headed and rational, she might have been calmer. So far we've established that we don't hold money in high regard as a leader, so this exam seemed so childish and pointless that we are frustrated that the leader of the arguably most powerful of the great nations is running such an important event like a game show instead of a test of knowledge and skill
>>48875243He's a liddle tattal tale, he's going around telling LIES. I was just trying to fish out a quata he swallowed I was just trying to help
>>48875243Every quest has something wierd going on. Be it that meme, flat chests blessing rolls, collecting monster's dicks, weeaboo Shaq, etc.
>>48875273> Weeaboo ShaqFuck, I almost forgot about that. I need to read through that whole thread again.
>>48875291>Forgetting Oda EverGet outta here Lori
You stew quietly, waiting for the two of them to leave the examination area. You aren’t in the mood for this- you swear, if it was something stupid, Ino’s getting cut off. She can exist on the social periphery for a while, that will show what happens when you disappoint Tsuki Norihi- Oh.Shikamaru emerges from the testing area, Ino leaning on his shoulder.She looks like she hasn’t slept in weeks. Is the mind transfer technique that tasking?Shika looks like he’s about to say something, his face cast in a grimace, when Ino speaks. “I-I’m sorry, Tsuki-hime. I tried to use the technique, but….” the blonde genin feebly turns her head to look at Nori and Hinata, who’ve moved over to the food table, sneaking around Choji.“There’s something in her head, Tsuki-hime. When I made contact, instead of seeing through her eyes, like what normally happens, all I saw was darkness…. And then, eyes, and teeth.” You didn’t notice it at first, but she’s shaking.“It almost ate my consciousness, Tsuki-hime. It was ravenous, and full of rage….. If father hadn’t taught me the failsafe release for that technique, I….” As her voice trails off, Shikamaru picks up the line. “Before you say anything, Norihime, she tried. You didn’t give us proper information! You didn’t tell us she had a demon living inside her! Feh, how bothersome….” It’s the angriest you’ve seen Shikamaru- he’s normally laid back to the extreme. You… 1. Apologize. You didn’t know that whatever was inside Nori had any sort of power….2. Don’t apologize. You told them what you knew- this isn’t your fault!
>>48875395>1. Apologize. You didn’t know that whatever was inside Nori had any sort of power….Poor Ino
>>48875395>2. Don’t apologize. You told them what you knew- this isn’t your fault!Can't apologize for what you didn't know
>>48875395Totally called it.1. Apologize. You didn’t know that whatever was inside Nori had any sort of power….
>>48875395>1. Apologize. You didn’t know that whatever was inside Nori had any sort of power….
>>48875395>1. Apologize. You didn’t know that whatever was inside Nori had any sort of power….And if I had known I would have told you. The deal is still in place.
>>48875395>1. Apologize. You didn’t know that whatever was inside Nori had any sort of power….Well now we have to help them.We also did not know of this demon.
>>48875395>1. Apologize. You didn’t know that whatever was inside Nori had any sort of power….Fuck, she did chimp out on Ebisu never forget... So I guess we're giving InoShikaCho our scroll if we have different ones then?
>>48875395>>1. Apologize. You didn’t know that whatever was inside Nori had any sort of power….
>>48875395>1. Apologize You didn’t know that whatever was inside Nori had any sort of power…."The deal is still on. See it as an apologizing gift."
>>48875446Nope. We will help them collect one though.
>>48875395>1. Apologize. You didn’t know that whatever was inside Nori had any sort of power….The deal stands, we'll help them with the next section.Also, hug ino. Gosh, we ic didnt know.
>>48875395>1. Apologize. You didn’t know that whatever was inside Nori had any sort of power….Also prepare to shout at whoever failed to pass on this EXTREMELY VITAL INFORMATION THAT COULD GET SOMEONE KILLED. Check if Nori new first, then escalate to the fourth.
>>48875395>1. Apologize. You didn’t know that whatever was inside Nori had any sort of power….why would we ever not?gon' have a talk with Nori
>>48875446I think we should instead work together as one team. We attack other teams together and get the scrolls. It's a sound plan, plus it gives them protection now that Ino is tired and may take a while to get back to normal.
Apologizing.>Executing process "Deflate_Ego.exe">Writing....
>>48875500Hey, we still have to aim that pent-up anger at someone else. No deflating yet.
>>48875470>>48875478>>48875480You've seen facets of this before, during the test with Ebisu. Tsuki did, in fact, know something was up with Nori, but didn't know exactly what it was- besides her extreme aversion to the image of the Nine-Tailed Fox.
>>48875494There was no rules against working together in Exams?
>>48875516I vote either Minato or Nori. Even though sad Minato is something I'd rather not see.
>>48875532You can work with whoever you want. You just need to get a pair of scrolls for your team and make it to the finish line.
So what are the odds our Behelit is going to somehow save our lives>It blocks a kunai shot
>>48875532not really, it's just that you can't work together on the 3rd round because it's a one on one fight
>>48875544How neither? Now is not the time for stifle. Take it out on the enemies.
>>48875529We (Tsuki) had no way of knowing it would affect mental contact though. We the players knew, obviously.
>>48875544Actually, fuck it, Kushina. After the initial shouting match, she would probably sit down with us and talk.
>>48875574Of course she didn't. But the lines says exactly that- she had no idea that whatever was in there had that sort of power.
>>48875553>lost in the wilderness>dying of hunger>look down at the magic egg>omelette time
>>48875599>Crack it open>It's full of wooden Kaguya sculptures the size of rice grains
>>48875553>>48875599It acts like Ichigo's mask does in the Soul Society Invasion arc.We keep losing it or throwing it away, but it always shows back up.
>>48875614And then Danzo betrays us, slicks back his hair and ascends to the moon along with Baki and Ibiki?
>>48875599Pancho's life really took a turn after he lost his kids
Nori has to be aware of being a Jinchuuriki, right? What's up with that anyway? That's one thing I haven't been able to make sense of yet. If pregnancy still weakens the seal, sealing a biju in a girl is retarded, assuming you have a guy available. If pregnancy doesn't weaken the seal, why would the biju be resealed? Kushina certainly wouldn't inflict that kind of thing on her children willingly.
>>48875708Hiruzen's wife is alive, so Tobi didn't attack. They probably have some of it's chakra and are pseudo-Jinchuriki.
so, if we learn some BULLSHIT, do we tell Danzo?
>>48875740Minato's wife*I'm guessing that the 9 tails leaked some of his chakra into them in utero
>>48875708From what you are aware (Danzo's intel) Kushina is still the Jinchuuriki. However, both Naruto and Nori react badly to the sight of the creature- even though as far as anybody knows, it hasn't been seen since Hashirama sealed it.(Presumably they it stuck in Kushina, and Hashirama's wife, Mito, before her, because they were Uzumaki.)
>>48875757Of course were already going all in for Root
>>48875757Depends on the bullshit. Some things we keep to ourselves.
>>48875757We tell Danzo most stuff, he is secret number 2 Dad of the ninja variety.
>>48875740But why would some of it's chankra have a mind? Especially one that can endanger the minds other?
>>48875757OOC: Hell noIC: Tsuki loves her harmless butler Danzo-san! He'll hear of this ohohohoho~!
We need to slap Suace if he tries to talk to us though. Copying our test without our permission?
>>48875757I think we should not. Not yet at least. We might have to speak with nori first. Some things shouldnt be spread so easily.
>>48875783Why? Tsuki realizes the point of the test is to get answers by any means.
You take a deep breath- In, and out. Just like Danzo used to show you…“I’m sorry. Both of you. I had no idea that it would be an issue; I-”“Enough, Norihime.” Shikamaru’s anger seems to have abated, at least a little.“You and Ino are friends, and I know enough about you to know you wouldn’t put in her danger like that on purpose. Though, I don’t think Ino’s gonna be in any shape to fight- we might just have to back out, now.” he says- although you notice he doesn’t seem particularly upset by this.“Nonsense, Shikamaru.” you say, catching his gaze.“We have a contract- and a Norihime never goes back on her contracts.” you state, matter of factly.“We’ll get you to the third round, as promised.” you finish.“That’s all well and good, but what about after that?” he asks, seemingly anxious that his excuse had evaporated.“What you three do after that is your choice. If Ino doesn’t feel that she can fight, then she can back out. You as well, Shikamaru.” You say, somewhat pointedly.“However,” you continue, motioning to Choji eating in the background,” I doubt he will. I’ll get you as far as we can go together, alright?”The two of them nod. Shikamaru takes Ino over to sit down, while those who remain from the exam continue to celebrate.As far as you can tell, most of your graduating class from the academy, along with Neji and Sai, passed as well.
>>48875783Why though? It's part of the exam. We would have done the same. It will be poor sportsmanship for Tsuki.
>>48875762No, I meant Hiruzen's wife, Biwako. Kushina could have survived the attack, but no matter what, Biwako wouldn't have. >>48875775Tailed Beasts are wierd, half of Kurama were able to regenerate into full Kurama, and the half in the Reaper Death Seal stayed alive despite Minato's death. It's not a leap to say that portions of their chakra could be sentient or at least semi-sentient.
>>48875783Souskus is already feeling slightly guilty, and that would be way over the top for such a minor offense. Tsuki was mainly pissed because Sukase had it easy modo, I think.
>>48875840Then lets snub him constantly and turn our nose up at him
>>48875840Sasuke seems like he has some aspects of Road to Ninja Sasuke. As punishment for the test, we should flirt with other guys in front of him. Especially Neji and others who could threaten Sasuke.
>>48875854Again, why?We should focus on the exams.
>>48875815Okay, I think I just didn't read far enough to know all the weird shit.>>48875854I'm okay with that. He might even come to apologize, and wouldn't that be a sight.
>>48875877We're not a whore and Sasuke is pretty good, he probably has Lion's Barrage because of Guy. I meant like Neji, Shikamaru, maybe Gaara and Sai.
>>48875854I'm not sure Tsuki would let a petty thing like Sasuke copying her bother her at much. She was mostly pissed off about the exam.
>>48875924>>48875940Don't anger The One or he'll Agent Smith us.
>>48875924Calm down anon. I was t serious and since when does flirting make you a whore?
>>48875924Do we know that Gaara isn't clinically insane yet?
>>48875940I agree, this is a test of ninja abilities and that test is explicitly designed to encourage cheating. I'm she she would understand and get over it. She's pissed at the test, not the participants
>>48875965We don't really even know of him yet.
>>48875959Depends, have we seen mister insomnia yet?
>>48875968Yea. Nothing to apologise for, honestly. You do what you have to do. And ooc, watching his jaw drop was gratifying.
>>48875965We know he's on Temari's team.
>>48875989damn it, I meant to quote >>48875965
Once everyone has filed out of the testing hall, Anko and Genma appear once more.“Everyone!” Anko yells, her voice carrying throughout the building.“Please follow Genma and I to testing field #44- do not get lost, or wander! Those of you who do not stay with the group will be severely punished!”Such a loud woman- you never have fully grasped why Itachi thought she would be a good fit for you team. Poor Genma is probably deaf.The noise level increases to a dull roar as the crowd of genin slowly shuffles out of the hallway. You follow, flanked by Nori and Hinata, while Choji, rushing to finish his meal, brings up the rear.-----------------------------------------------------------------------Exiting the back of the academy, Anko and Genma lead you all along a winding path far outside the outskirts of Konoha. You pass several of the training fields you used as students- and those in use by current genin teams not participating in the exam. Eventually, you reach a large forest, seemingly entirely fenced off.“Training Field #44- “Forest of Death” a signpost reads.Forest of Death, huh? You ponder silently if Minato named this as well. It’s certainly in creativity….“Alright, everyone, listen up!” Anko again, loud as ever.“This here is the Forest of Death, the location of your second round of Chunin exams! I will warn you, especially those of you who may have taken these exams before- the Forest has gone under some renovations as of late! It may not be how you remember it- always proceed with caution- don’t make me collect more of your corpses than absolutely necessary!”She certainly seems cheery about this part- more than you would expect.“Once everyone is settled, my partner Genma will explain the rules! So, get settled! We don’t have all day!” Anko continues to shout.You can see the prospective Genin milling about- there are still teams from every nation competing, along with several Konoha teams.
You…1. Go see someone! (Who?)2. Go with the flow, and observe the mass of shinobi.3. Go sit down with Nori and Hinata. Let’s get this show on the road!
>>48876148>3. Go sit down with Nori and Hinata. Let’s get this show on the road!
>>488761483. Go sit down with Nori and Hinata. Let’s get this show on the road!
>>48876148>3. Go sit down with Nori and Hinata. Let’s get this show on the road!check in on the team
>>488761483. Go sit down with Nori and Hinata. Let’s get this show on the road!Make sure Ino's team is near us as well, we can't go leaving them behind
>>48876148>3. Go sit down with Nori and Hinata. Let’s get this show on the road!>making me get up at 6 AM, I hope you won't be starting earlier in future.
>>48876148>3. Go sit down with Nori and Hinata. Let’s get this show on the road!I know it's dangerous to be suspicious of your teammates during stuff like this. But we should keep a close eye on Nori during the exam. Does her chakra network seem off to Hinata?
>>48876148>3. Go sit down with Nori and Hinata. Let’s get this show on the road!Let's try to not run into the psychopath insomniac.
Rolled 14 (1d20)>>48876203Lets see what the dice say
Getting the show, and setting it gently on the road.Writing.
>>48876200Hers is probably a proper seal since minato had time, or some of the 9-tails chakra went to naruto and nori after thy were born, maintaining a connection. It shouldnt have been a rushed job like canon naruto's.
>>48876148>2. Go with the flow, and observe the mass of shinobi.
>>48876295I know what the next dream should be Wargle. >Nori, Ino, TentenBig egg, round egg, right in front of me, who do you think this egg could be?>Tiny JuubiiCould the egg be Tenten?>TentenNo, it's not me.I'm just a little old kunai.That big, round, eggs's too blue, don't you know?Could the cake be Ino?>InoNo, not me.I'm the fragrant iris in this story.That big round egg loves Juubii, can't you see?Is the egg Tsuki?>TsukiNo, it's not me.I am the moon.This big, round, egg is peeping, you see.Could the egg be Hinata?>HinataNo, not me.I'm the byakugan, full of veins.This big, round, egg looks saltier than salt.Could the cake be Nori?>NoriNo, it's not me.I'm the ramen, don't you see?When you eat the ramen, it will bring you salty dreams>Nori, Ino, TentenSo why is the dream so bizzare all late?'Cause the rabbit's dream is the one on the plate.It's so plump, it's gonna taste great!
>>48876030Faggots go to /lgbt/.
You decide to go sit with Nori and Hinata. They’ve picked a rather nice spot against a shady tree.You take the moment to relax with your team- letting the crowds sort themselves out without you.After a period of time, you hear Anko’s voice carry across the field.“Alright everyone! Quiet! Time for the rules!” she shouts, before making a gesture presenting Genma.He coughs, politely.“Ok, everybody! There’s a lot of you here, so we’ve changed the rules a bit! There are 8 chests within these woods! These eight chests all contain the same item- a scroll of the Underworld! Your task, genin, is to retrieve one of these scrolls, and take it to the tower in the center of the woods! Those who do not have the scroll, will be barred from entering the tower until the time limit for this test has passed- 120 hours, or 5 days!“These eight chests are scattered around the woods in eight unique areas- The Village, The Waterfall, The Caves, The Bridge, The Castle, The Den of Beasts, The Plain, and The Mountain! Each landmark will be quite clear when you see it. These landmarks contain one chest a piece, which in turn, has one scroll within! Be advised- you are not to look inside the scrolls under any circumstances!”Genma tuts, then continues explaining.“Obviously these are not enough scrolls for everyone- if you do not wish to face the challenges within each landmark, you can try to take them from your opposing Genin! As previously stated, each team of three will only be permitted inside with a scroll to accompany them!”He takes a deep breath, and relaxes.“It’s very dangerous in there, so proceed with caution. After the time period has ended, we will search for those who remain. Everyone who wishes to continue, follow me over to the registration desk. You will be required to sign a waiver….”
>>48876776>A treasure huntInteresting exam, Wargle. Just got home and it seems like you've been having a good quest.
So guys I think a good idea here is obviously we group up with Ino's team, but secondly we go to the endpoint at the center. First two teams to come along, we take them out and steal the scrolls. That we both us and Inos team make it through.
>>48876825or camp a treasure chestor make a fake one as a trap
>>48876825Pretty much, let the other teams weaken themselves with the challanges and we'll be waiting with Hinata using her Byakugan to tell us when someones coming
>>48876776Wow i dont remember the rules being this harsh.Cant say i dont like it, although i guess we are gonna have to hurry if we want to get a scroll for both us and Ino's team.
>>48876835Problem is, only 1 scroll to a chest, if we aren't first, then there is nothing there. Any teams who show up likely wont have a scroll either
Genma trails off explaining paperwork. You seem to understand the methodology of the test- retrieve the target item, and deliver it to the target location safely. Do not attempt to open the scroll. If you fail to get a scroll from it’s original location, one can be taken from other genin teams- presumably by force.You're somewhat relieved- this seems more like an actual test of your abilities, rather than that goofy test.You do realize, though, that you'll need to get two of the scrolls- one for your team, and one for Shikamaru's. That... could be troublesome.You...1. Usher everyone forward to sign up. Don't want to be late!2. Find Shikamaru, Ino, and Choji to discuss strategy,
>>48876861>2. Find Shikamaru, Ino, and Choji to discuss strategy,
>>488768612. Find Shikamaru, Ino, and Choji to discuss strategy
>>48876861>2. Find Shikamaru, Ino, and Choji to discuss strategy,A deal's a deal, guys!
>>48876825This was the Suna teams MO in canon. They'll probably do it here too. And we'll have Ino take over Gaara. And then Shikamaru will hate us.
>>488768612. Find Shikamaru, Ino, and Choji to discuss strategy,
>>48876825We do make an excellent ganking team, especially with Shikamaru around. Finding Ino's team and then hunting down scroll bearers seems like a good idea. We shouldn't camp until we have at least one scroll or we risk not being able to get a second. >>48876861>2. Find Shikamaru, Ino, and Choji to discuss strategy,
>>48876883Hahaha I could see that."AGAIN TSUKI!? 2 DEMON MINDS IN ONE DAY!?"
>>48876890I just hope InoShikaCho doesn't stab us in the back. It seems kind of OOC for them, but it might be the best strategy for them.
>>48876890Agreed, we find one scroll out in the forest, and then we camp for the second scroll.>>48876861>2. Find Shikamaru, Ino, and Choji to discuss strategy,
>>48876912Considering how shikamaru doesnt really want to be here and would prefer to retire... Not very likely.
>>48876890Why would we camp a chest?Anyone going for a chest wouldn't have a scroll. It's pointless.Unless you mean camp the finish line. But that is a lot of ground to cover.
>>48876861>2. Find Shikamaru, Ino, and Choji to discuss strategy,We can skip the finding bit by ambushing teams on their way to the tower.
>>48876912Doubtfull. Shik and the gang don't seem to be the type of people betray. Besides, Shika really wants to go home, Ino still is loyal, and Cho loves Tsuki because of food.
>>48876930Different anon here (I disagreed with him as well) but the end point is just a tower, we can camp the shit out of it with 2 teams.>>48876936I agree, no need to find a scroll first. We can take them off the first two teams to reach the end
>>48876930Not as much as you think, have Hinata focus on telling us when a team is coming then the rest of us can gank them>>48876876How close is this Wargle to future Tsuki
>>48876912Ino is out of it and Shikamaru can't hold all three of us long enough for long. We're also significantly faster and have a Byakugan so we could catch up to them even if they did take us out. >>48876930>people go in to get the scroll>horribe misfortune and challenges befall them>finally they get the scroll>only to get paralyzed, knocked out, and robbed
>>48876928He's principled though, he may not love the idea of being a ninja, but he knows he has to be one. Shikamaru might be the most dangerous genin in that forest for us. Too bad Tsuki doesn't think like this, Danzo didn't do a good enough job.
The castle is good for the inoshikacho narrow corridors so they can't dodge INO, loads of shadows, limited mobility so choji can tank.
>>48876972As for us if we work with them a similar trick can work in the den of beasts, have INO kite the beasts to other teams. Or he'll possess one have it bring the scroll out
>>48876963Quit being paranoid. That type of attitude ruins alliances.
>>48876972>choji can tankNot Choji ball rolling down the corridor.
>>48876991I'm just doing what Danzo would want me to. Even though Tobirama taught him differently and it's more of a Madara way of thinking.
>>48877008We're danzo-lite though. Tsuki doesn't immediately evaluate everyone as to how big a threat to Konoha they are.
>>48877047If we actually learn some history we should start following Hiruzen and the other Elders more than Danzo. Because they're more like Hashirama and Tobirama respectively, while Danzo has a dangerously Madara-like way of thinking. Which is impressive considering he hasn't seen the wall or met Black Zetsu.
I wonder what kind of curse mark will Tsuki get?
First thing’s first- time to talk strategy with Shikamaru’s team. You beckon Nori and Hinata, who follow you. Unsurprisingly, the three of them are hanging near the back, with Ino resting, and Choji chomping away on what looks to be potato chips. Didn’t he just eat….?The three of you sit nearby, with Shikamaru quickly taking notice. He walks over, leaving the other two to their business. “So Norihime, got a plan?” He says, with a knowing smirk.“Several, actually. But, we need to go over it, at least.”“Makes sense to me. What do you have in mind?”Well…1. We’ll raid the teams as they approach the finish line. This way we don’t need to expend energy with the challenges, and we can pick off weakened teams. May get awkward if any other teams have a similar idea.2. Rush the landmark closest to our chosen entrance- gives us a guaranteed shot at least one scroll. We’ll likely need to take the other from a genin team. This plan requires more time than the first.3. Opt out of directly hunting genin teams- these foreign shinobi are thirsty for blood, and will likely be itching for a fight. It will be better to avoid them for as long as possible.
>>48877111And in an old castle no less!
>>48877123>1. We’ll raid the teams as they approach the finish line. This way we don’t need to expend energy with the challenges, and we can pick off weakened teams. May get awkward if any other teams have a similar idea.
>>48877123>2. Rush the landmark closest to our chosen entrance- gives us a guaranteed shot at least one scroll. We’ll likely need to take the other from a genin team. This plan requires more time than the first.
>>48877115No child molesters in this forest, I hope.
>>48877133My logic being its better if we have a fight or two earlier with teams that are staking out the goal since we'll have time to rest before the people with the scrolls get there
>>48877123>1. We’ll raid the teams as they approach the finish line. This way we don’t need to expend energy with the challenges, and we can pick off weakened teams. May get awkward if any other teams have a similar idea.Time for Gank Squad!
>>48877123>2. Rush the landmark closest to our chosen entrance- gives us a guaranteed shot at least one scroll. We’ll likely need to take the other from a genin team. This plan requires more time than the first.How many teams are participating?
>>48877147Nope just me Jonin Paul watchin over dem kids, gotta make sure their all keepin up with der personal hygene
>>48877123>1. We’ll raid the teams as they approach the finish line. This way we don’t need to expend energy with the challenges, and we can pick off weakened teams. May get awkward if any other teams have a similar idea.It'll give us time to get a good position and fight off the other ambushers.
>>48877123>1. We’ll raid the teams as they approach the finish line. This way we don’t need to expend energy with the challenges, and we can pick off weakened teams. May get awkward if any other teams have a similar idea.>>48877147The Sound team are here, and the Kazekage arrived in a litter. So there are. Also Jiraiya is around and he's probably got a statutory or two in foreign villages.
>>48877123> OtherOur teams will go seperate ways first. 3-P will rush the nearest landmark while InoShikaCho will camp the tower.This allows Ino to rest up since she won't have to rush that far and if Shika comes across a very weakened team, they can strike first.Otherwise, they can scout and rest before we come back and we hit another team together.
>>48877123>2. Rush the landmark closest to our chosen entrance- gives us a guaranteed shot at least one scroll. We’ll likely need to take the other from a genin team. This plan requires more time than the first.Rather not fight the foreign teams.
>>48877123>1On phone, can't copy the entire thing well.
>>48877123>2. Rush the landmark closest to our chosen entrance- gives us a guaranteed shot at least one scroll. We’ll likely need to take the other from a genin team. This plan requires more time than the first.Tsuki is fast enough.
>>48877199Why not? It's good experience for later.
>>48877123>1. We’ll raid the teams as they approach the finish line. This way we don’t need to expend energy with the challenges, and we can pick off weakened teams. May get awkward if any other teams have a similar idea.We'll most likeyl get more scrolls that way, though if push comes to shove we can budge over another ambusher team or if worse comes to worse we wait for one team to ambush the package team then ambush them in turn.
>>48877251>>48877123>2The problem with the first plan is weakened or not we'd likely face the teams most suitable for chunin exams.Which is fine, if they're tired but even if we make it they'll likely exact revenge in the third.The second is a mix of the two, but carries the same threat as the first.It may be best to play this straight until we can't. However, it also makes us a walking target for the entire time.
>>48877123>1. We’ll raid the teams as they approach the finish line. This way we don’t need to expend energy with the challenges, and we can pick off weakened teams. May get awkward if any other teams have a similar idea.Members of different clans, openly competing against another, in a place where death would not be circumspect...I'm actually trying to think of a reason not to simply kill the Sound ninja.
>>48877314No reason not to anon, and it even fits in character with Tsuki wanting to stop any threats to the leaf
>>48877308But with a two-team group including a sensor and two shinobi capable of directly controlling the enemy we have a great chance of winning any fight.
>>48877335Ino's abit out of it. Probably best not to factor her into the calculations so much.Still it is a very strong team.
>>48877353That's a fair comment. 1 direct control, 1 weakened and possibly out of it direction control.
>>48877327I'm sorry, I phrased that wrong. I should have said "I'm trying to think of a reason why sending ninja teams into possibly lethal training governed by a competing clan simply wouldn't naturally end in the would-be ninjas getting bumped off."
>>48877335The only real threats to this six person operation are if the Sound and Sand team up, or some unholy collaboration between Teams Guy and Kakashi.
Looks like 2 takes it.Writing.
>>48877372Go back to your cool mountain, Mifune.
I guess we should avoid conflict with other konoha nins as much as possible.
>>48877403The more konoha shinobi in the finals the better Konoha looks, lets do it
>>48877403Well I mean... if they can't hack it they shouldn't be given a free pass. Obviously we won't kill any Leaf shinobi though
>>48877395Fug, good luck on the exams Wargle, I'll read this tomorrow I guess.
>>48877123>1. We’ll raid the teams as they approach the finish line. This way we don’t need to expend energy with the challenges, and we can pick off weakened teams. May get awkward if any other teams have a similar idea.>2. Rush the landmark closest to our chosen entrance- gives us a guaranteed shot at least one scroll. We’ll likely need to take the other from a genin team. This plan requires more time than the first.Why not both? Why not rush for one scroll and then have hinata scout the tower as we rush it, and either set up camp or take out the waiting team and dispose of them somehow.
So what nations would Tsuki go harder on then others>Sand>Sound >Mist
>>48877593Equally. Shit, no mercy.
>>48877593she'd cut the music
>>48877593Sound probably. Because of that massacre she saw....Actually come to think of it. What if Ino soul captures a sound-nin. Won't she get intel from what they know? Won't we be able to catch any attack they're planning?
>>48877593Sound then Mist then Sand.
>>48877629I don't think so. She's weak for now.And it seems a bit meta.
>>48877629>implying Oro would tell them shit
>>48877669Not exactly, since we already suspect the sound for being up to no good. Theres that killing that Tsuki saw and she even ran to gate where to conversed with some other jounins that the sound were going to be watched very closely but that Konoha couldn't just expel them like that.
“We’ll rush the closest landmark, making sure we get at least one scroll. From there, we’ll need to take another from a genin team- although with the five of us together, that shouldn’t be much of an issue. What teams could stand up to us?” You explain, ending with a smile. Shikamaru looks around, but fails to find the excuse he was looking for.“Very well. If Hinata and I keep watch, I doubt much will surprise us- but we should still be careful.”“Of course, Shikamaru. I would suggest otherwise! Now, we should probably go register…”The six of you split as not to draw too much attention- and proceed to the station for registration.“Ahhhh! Tsuki! It’s good to see you again!” Anko says, beaming behind the registration desk.You give her as much of a genuine smile as you can muster.“Afternoon, Anko-sensei. I need to register for the 2nd part of the exams….” “Oh, of course! Now, please don’t go dying in those woods, ok? Itachi won’t ever let me live that down if the three of you go out on my watch….”She’s smiling, but her words are rather grim. You don’t think you fully understand this women, yet.“Of course not, Anko sensei. We’ll go all the way! We have to make Itachi-sensei proud, after all.” you say, dismissing her concerns.“Hoho~ Of course you don’t want to let down your cherished teacher!” She teases.You take the waiver paperwork, sticking your tongue out at Anko.Giving it a quick once over, you glean the important parts: “The shinobi signing this release Konohagakure of all responsibility in the death, maining or other injuries of this person.”More political niceties from Minato. If an enemy village was upset enough over the loss of their genin, they’d make problems, paperwork or no. Especially since many of Hidden Villages don’t seem to have quite as many genin teams as Konoha does in this exam…..You sign it anyway, handing it to Anko. In return, she hands you a map.
“There are several different entrances- choose whichever one you’d like- although I wouldn't’ recommend picking the crowded ones!” She says with a wink.You bid her farewell and give the map a once over. Some entrances seem equidistant with two of the landmarks- while others are clearly oriented with on in particular. With 16 entrances in all, there is a likelihood at least a few teams will be doubled up. The map is rough, and you have no idea any measure of distances, but each of the landmarks are clearly labeled. You have some choices to make. First, will your team and Shikamaru’s go through the same door?1. Yes2. No
>>48877758>1. YesMight as well right?
>>48877758YesIt will make it much easier if we don't have to track them down. Once we are inside, all pretenses can drop. We don't need to hide the alliance.
>>48877758>2. NoBest to not make it obvious were siding together have them enter from a flanking position
>>48877758>2. NoBetter to hide our strength initially. Hinata should be able to help us link up.
>>48877779>>48877826Don't forget that they are essentially 1 team member down. Not only do they have to compensate for that, they have to help move her along. We shouldn't leave them in a situation like that
>>48877758>1. YesInoShikaCho is a bit weak now. best to stick together.
>>48877758>>1. YesWhy bother hiding our strength? We're not trying to trick anyone, just ambush and beat the shit out of them.
What if we get curse marked guys?
>>48877896What does it do, why do we need it?
>>48877896What do you mean?
>>48877911a snakeman gives you a hickey and it gives a you a magic tattoo that gives you super powers but makes you edgy and emo
>>48877896We have so many supernatural forces bumping around in Tsuki's head I don't know if theres room for a magic emo mark.seriously I think the behelit we have might take exception.
Overwhelming yes!Now, time for some fun.Do you wish to target a specific door? Otherwise we can roll for it. All challenges are going to be somewhat equal, though different teams will be present in different challenges.1. Pick a specific door2. Roll for it!

>>48878109Well at least we can decide before we all split, you go there, i'll go there, lets not fight till the very 3rd round, etc.
You, somewhat arbitrarily, choose Gate 8.Checking your map once more, you see that Gate 8 is one of the Gates between two landmarks- The Bridge, and the Castle.As per your plan, you’ll need to head straight towards one of them. Which do you wish to head to?1. The Castle2. The Bridge
>>48878188>1. The CastleBridges are scary.
>>48878188>1. The Castle
>>48878188>1. The CastlePrincesses always pick castles

>>48878303CASTLE WARGLE>WHERE GENIN GO TO WARGLE.Erm, what IS 'Wargling' anon?
Hmmm. Might as well try the castle, right?Once everyone meets up, you lay out the plan.“I went ahead and chose Gate 8- should be far enough away that we can claim it between the six of us. With two teams at that gate, I doubt anyone else will want to be around.” you explain.The five shinobi nod, understanding the plan.Once everyone has signed the paperwork, Genma addresses everyone a final time.“Alright, thank you everyone for making that quick! Now, at this point I’ll give you leave to choose your Gate of choice- in twenty minutes, a alarm will sound over all sixteen gates, and the gates will rise! At that point, you are free to enter- and after a minute, all gates will close!”“So, Shinobi! Make preparations and choose your Gate! Your have twenty minutes!” he finishes.Good thing you already chose your gate, then. The six of you take off, with Choji carrying Ino on his shoulders.Soon after you take off, many other shinobi follow, but quickly split off from you to take unoccupied Gates. You are the first to reach Gate 8, the six of you standing somewhat apart.You make note of teams that pass by you-A team of Ame shinobi, wearing their bulky rebreather masks.Team Kakashi- Neji, Sai and Kabuto. They wave as they pass by.Team Kurenai- Shino, Kiba, and TenTen. TenTen stops to give a big smile and wave before leaving to catch up with her team. Closely behind the are the Genin from the Sound. You notice their glances, but otherwise they keep moving.Behind them, a Team from Takigakure- the only distinct shinobi among them is a blue-haired girl with a tanned complexion.A team from Suna is next- although not the team with the Kazekage’s kids in it, seemingly. They are all dressed somewhat similarly to how you were while in the Land of Wind- loose clothes and masks.Quickly behind them follows a team from Kusagakure- one of them is wearing a really large hat.
Another team from Konoha appears, but doesn’t seem to contain anyone you recognize. You see Team Guy, but they quickly change directions, heading back towards the other gates.Finally, another team from Sunagakure- this must be them. According to your book, their names are Temari, Kankuro and Gaara. They don’t run, they walk at a rather slow pace- their faces are rather solemn, as well.Interesting. After a few moments, the alarm sounds- it’s time to enter the Forest of Death!
>>48878452>FuFuck. How many tailed hosts are there in this fucking exam.
Rolled 77 (1d100)So do we use our release to kill these sound shinobi or keep it a secret until round 3?
>>48878533I'd rather we keep it a secret until Round 3.But if we get in a shitty spot, then we should use it.
Just think of how many different women we would be able to go for right now if we pick a man>>48878533Keep it a secret we can kill them without revealing it, but if we really need it we can use Afterglow
>>48878533Depends, if shit gets real we give them a stella taste of our power
>>48878543If we fight gaara I say we actually kill him right here in the forest. And the other sandies if we can
>>48878562that's a good point. Fighting Garra in the forest would turn this into life or death though, so I suggest we try to avoid him. if it comes down to it though, we kill him
>>48878533Beat their face in but refrain from killing as out yet. If we can force them to not be able to take part in round 3 due to fuckmassive injuries, all the better.
The six of you exchange quick glances, and nod.All at once, you take off into the woods, leaving the gate far behind. You veer off to the right, reading towards the castle. Hinata and Nori keep pace, but Shikamaru and Choji, with ino on his back, aren’t as fast as you are.Do you….1. Wait for them. We need to approach this together!2. Go on ahead. We’ll secure the area!
>>48878581>1. Wait for them. We need to approach this together!
>>48878577Why not just kill them?>>48878581>2. Go on ahead. We’ll secure the area!
>>48878581>1. Wait for them. We need to approach this together!they could get picked off if we leave them
>>48878581>1. Wait for them. We need to approach this together!Make sure Hinita is using her eyes to scout ahead
>>488785811. Wait for them. We need to approach this together!
>>48878577I'd say just kill them, there'd be no drawbacks and they wouldn't be able to endanger the leaf at all anymore. otherwise they could still screw us afterwards
Sticking together. Writing.
>>48878581>2. Go on ahead. We’ll secure the area!
>1 wait for another team here to move in then shadow lick them and drop them that's 1 group less to worry about The morning KIA here the less we fight in round 3
So who are we looking at to recruit for Root right now?
>>48878772Right now we're just focusing on the Exam.
You slow down some, with Nori and Hinata matching your speed.Shikamaru is quick to catch up, and eventually Choji makes it as well, although he’s loudly huffing and puffing.“Hinata. Keep your eyes out- we need to be careful heading up to this first landmark.” “Yes, Tsuki-hime.” she replies- and in an instant, her Byakugan are active.Hinata keeps a tight perimeter as you move along, although you don’t run into any of the other shinobi teams.Yet.After a half hour of this pace, you can see the “Castle” in the distance. Unsurprisingly, it’s shaped just like a traditional castle, tucked within the massive foliage.As you approach, Hinata scans the building.“Three chakra signatures inside- on the same floor, moving quickly. They’re searching for something.” She reports.“The chest, yeah? Let’s go get ‘em!” Nori says, excited the fighting is about to begin.“Hold on, Nori.” You say, reading the placard on the outer wall.“This is the CASTLE. A traditional construction of the Warring States period. Secret passages and traps are hidden within. Can you find the treasure and escape?”You’d read about these old castles- these things basically a vertical labyrinth of tunnels and scret passages.There are a few ways to approach this….1. Go in and search with all six of you!2. Split up the teams to search and guard the entrance!3. Defend the exit, and face the team when they exit with the scroll!
>>48878772We should talk to Danzo about that. I imagine nothing will happen until he reboots it after our post chunin-exam conversation that he promised to have. At that point though we can discuss the attributes of our classmates etc and see whos a good fit.
>>48878780>3. Defend the exit, and face the team when they exit with the scroll!
>>48878780>3. Defend the exit, and face the team when they exit with the scroll!Hide and ambush, why let ourselves be potentially weakened by the traps?
>>488787803. Defend the exit, and face the team when they exit with the scroll!Also gives Choji a chance to catch his breathe.
>>48878780>2. Split up the teams to search and guard the entrance!Inoshikacho can guard and ambush the gate. We'll search. If the team finds it before us, we can move to pincer catch the team.
>>48878780>2. Split up the teams to search and guard the entrance!Theres most likely multiple exits guys
>>48878780>2. Split up the teams to search and guard the entrance!
>>48878811We're less likely to actually, with hinata. We can quickly pinpoint the treasure.
>>48878832Less likely, but if we don't go in and only ambush it comes down to a zero chance.
>>48878780>>1. Go in and search with all six of you!
>>48878780>2. Split up the teams to search and guard the entrance
>>48878780Perhaps we could set up a trap. See if anyone has any wire and explosive tags.
Splitting up- InoShikaCho guarding the entrance while you search with Hinata and Nori.Writing.
>>48878908Your teammates all have high stock of shinobi tools, as do you.
You quickly formulate a plan best suited for this kind of thing-“Shikamaru. Stay here and guard the entrance with Ino and Choji. Hinata, Nori and Myself will go inside and try to find the chest- and engage the enemy if need be. Make sure you watch to see if anyone leaves the castle that isn’t one of us!”Choji, after setting down Ino, gives you a thumbs up while he catch his breath. Shikamaru nods- and goes about setting traps using wire and tags around the perimeter of the castle.With that taken care of, the three of you head into the castle.“They’re four floors up, Tsuki-hime.” Hinata reports as you enter. The castle itself is actually furnished, which surprises you. You quickly glance around the entrance hall, before spying stairs up.As you climb the floors you notice several hidden panels and other places where an enterprising shinobi could set traps. It when you reach floor three, you begin to notice expended traps- meaning your new friends above had likely triggered them.As they are likely above you now, you have another choice- try to sneak around them, and focus on searching for the treasure? Or take them out now, and search for the treasure afterwards?1. Avoid enemy shinobi, look for treasure.2. Take out enemy shinobi.
>>48879022>1. Avoid enemy shinobi, look for treasure.
>>48879022>2. Take out enemy shinobi.Make sure Hinata tells us if any other team shows up
>>48879022>2. Take out enemy shinobi.
>>488790221. Avoid enemy shinobi, look for treasure.
>>48879022>1. Avoid enemy shinobi, look for treasure.The treasure is top priority.
>>48879062And it'll be easier to take if we get rid of the other team first, its better for us to catch them off guard then them catching us off guard
>>48879085I would agree with you but I think there might be another team that might come and take the treasure while they're fighting. It would be a good time to do that.
Attempting to avoid enemy Shinobi, searching directly for treasure!Roll me a d100!First three, boys.

Since they are searching every floor, they obviously haven’t found it yet- which makes you wonder.“Hinata, can you find the cheat with your Byakugan?” you ask.“No, not directly, since it doesn’t give off a chakra signature- but…” She looks around with her Byakugan, holding her sentence.Finally, she seems to come to a realization.“The roof!” Normally there are faint amounts of chakra all around us- but, the roof has a pocket of space that lacks this. If we can simply get up there…..You, Nori and Hinata begin to climb floor after floor, making note of traps along the way, trying to remain stealthy.[DC: 65, Pass]Luckily, you manage to sneak past the enemy shinobi, who are searching each floor very thoroughly. When you reach the top floor of the castle, it takes a few moments before finding an open window from which you can climb up the roof. Walking on the uneven shingles is difficult, but you’ve training on walking on uneven surfaces before- a little chakra applied to the feet, and you’re stable once more.Atop the castle, you find a slim spire reaching for the sky. “Is this the one, Hinata?” Nori says, inspecting it.“Yes, it should be. It looks to be hollow.” She muses.A quick investigation reveals that one of the side panels peels away- revealing a small chest!“Aha! Easy enough.” Nori says, lifting the small box.Inside, a small scroll with “Underworld” written on it rests.This elicits a wide smile from Nori.“Yes, we got it! Now let’s bail before those guys below us-” Her words are cut short, as far below, you hear the sounds of several explosive tags firing off at once.Looks like someone else has arrived!

And we'll end on that note, because I all want you to hate me <3My pillow calls to me, anons.@WargleQM for Tips and TricksNext thread will likely be Sunday! Should be a longer one, so we can get round two wrapped up.POST THREAD N SHIT
>>48879286Thanks for running, Wargle.
>>48879286Thanks for wargling, wargle.
>>48879286thanks for running
>>48879275It wasn't a particularly high DC. Also, historically my players only roll high on diplomacy checks, another literally nothing else. :P
>>48879286Thanks for running, Wargle.And which questions were key to forming future!Tsuki's behavior/personality?
>>48879286Thanks for running!
Rolled 12 (1d100)>>48879286Thanks for running
Rolled 82 (1d100)>>48879311come on you can roll better
>>48879311I hope this isn't a faux pas mentioning it in your thread, but I was considering running a Naruto thread based in the Mist. Is that something people might be interested in? Similar sort of lethal world, but no tailed-beasts, a few less missing-nin etc and some interesting intrigue.
>>48879299I'm assuming our OpFor isn't anyone we recognise, since Hinata didnt say "Thats so and so's charkra" when she spied on them?
>>48879322Between this and anonkun (which I don't visit) there are currently five Naruto Quests running.I wouldn't recommend it, as the over-saturation is definitely real.But otherwise, I don't mind at all. Always want to encourage other QMs!
>>48879322Yes. Sounds good.But there's like three other Naruto quests, though. I think one might go in hiatus.The Hyuuga and Future one are fill autistics.
>>48879327If it was someone she recognized, she would've mentioned it. >>48879296How many wargles wargle, if a wargle could wargling wargle?
>>48879344>>48879346That's a good point, maybe I'lll wait a bit. Although I don't consider Anonkun as anything worth noting. It's just an idea though, something that'll take a while to flesh out. Turns out, there really aren't a lot of mist ninja with any info.
>NejiA rebellious delinquent boy with a drill pompadour>ShikaA cynical girl who has a soft spot for old people>LeeEnergetic twins boy and girl really to fightThis is what I sort think Tsuki's oldest child(ren) could be like.Ignore it. This was just to get it out of my head.
>>48879361Wargles wargled, wargled wargle Wargle.
>>48879368>A rebellious delinquent boy with a drill pompadourthis is hilarious
>>48879363Only one's on Anonkun, and I only mention it because I've seen other people count it.But otherwise we haveShinobi QuestHyuuga QuestFuture Naruto Quest (Lewd Genin Quest)and Ninja Monk QuestIf you can keep /tg/'s attention, more power to you. I just don't want sad QMs with no players.
>>48879387Real question is why they're all popping up now, this many quests didn't pop up when mini and laze were running?
>>48879387Yeah ok, that's a lot of naruto. I'll leave it for now. I know how hard it is to keep this shit separate and interesting as a player. There is other stuff I can run anyway, Zoids quest, High Seas piracy, etc etc
>>48879398It's the Wargle Effect. He's so good that he inspired others to run Naruto quest.
>>48879407I could go for another piracy quest
>>48879398I started shortly after Mini died and Laze went on extended leave.I'm not conceited enough to take credit for it, myself. Maybe between the three of us we made it more acceptable to run a Naruto Quest? No idea.
>>48879412Yeah the last one I read I was disappointed in, it died way too soon. I think the OP made the mistake of getting too tangled in the nitty gritty of what pirates were really like and left too much shit up to the players >>Rape entire village>>Murder entire village>> Leave entire village to starve to deathNeedless to say, there are better ways of handling that shit.
>>48879407Pirates would probably be popular. I'd play it.I haven't watched Zoids in a decade so I'm not familiar enough with the plot to make that choice.
Could a Silent Hill quest work?
>>48879438I threw the plot out for the game I planned. Literally 0 canon, just big ass animal robots and morally grey choices
>>48879431It depends how realistic you want to make it, if you want to advertise it as realist then its fine to give the people those options but if you want it romanticized then probably better to run it less gritty
>>48879448Giant stonking Iron Kong.God i love the mechs. A zoids game would be fun as hell.
>>48879448Probably for the best. Mecha is always crazy popular.>>48879445Ehhh. SH is a game a little too filled with potential MC death to be fun. And it wouldn't really be SC if you take that away. More than welcome to try, though!
>>48879460Well I mean, I could run it gritty but I think those options can be wrapped up more generally. Yes, you are pirated but I don't think you need to go through every option in detail like the last quest I was in. Slaves and shit were also a contentious point which I found funny... it was a pirate quest, of course people were being enslaved. Ah well.>>48879461Yeah my favourite was the one centered around the Molga. Molga STRONG tactics all day erry day was hilarious.
>>48879487>MolgaQuantity has a quality all its own~
>>48879487Theres that akun pirate quest Valkyries of sea which is rather popular.Then again akun quest choices tend to tend towards terrible choices so plenty of rape and slaving.
HINATA BEST GIRL
>>48879586harambe best girl!
>>48879602tits out for harambe
>>48879657Wargle out for tits
>>48879322I'd play it I don't think over saturation a an issue, in my experience more quests is better because players will gradually converge together for the most part
