Shinobi Quest #33This quest takes place within the lands of the Five Great Shinobi Nations (aka Narutoverse) starting roughly around the beginning of the original series. The world of this quest remains similar to the original, with slight but notable differences in certain areas, based upon the passage of time from a single slightly altered event. (It’s a goddamn Naruto Quest, you bastards. Have fun, participate, and write in when you feel inclined. Most of the outcomes of this quest will be determined by you, the players. Critiques and questions are always welcome, as my knowledge of the weeby shit is not all encompassing.)http://pastebin.com/WiPdCqLHPrevious Threads: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Shinobi%20QuestLast thread, Tsuki Norihime and her allies faced more of the trials of the Forest of Death, defeat a Giant Snake and a genin team from Amegakure in short order. When trying to track down the missing members of the allied Team InoShikaCo and Team 7, Tsuki and Nori stumbled upon a fateful meeting- Choji stayed behind to take of Ino, a short distance away.With Shikamaru, Sai, Hinata and Neji all laid out before them, Tsuki chose not to be intimidated by the man known as Orochimaru- and even decided to fight him. The sannin, however, was far above her and Nori’s level- or, at least, when Tsuki was holding back.
In the interest of saving her companions, and potentially driving him away, Tsuki engaged in her Stellar Release for the first time outside of the safety of her home. To her surprise, she was able to keep up with the legendary shinobi, although she was never truly sure if he was just testing her or not.Her luck ran out, however, as the strict stamina limit of Afterglow quickly caught off with her- without it, she was no longer quick enough to match his movements…..“Struggle, Tsuki. I wish to see how strong you can become.”These last words of Orochimaru were his parting gift before being knocked out by the Sannin.Awaking in a cave some time later, she was given the rundown of the aftermath of these events- Orochimaru left, allowing her and Choji, along with the returning Kabuto, to move you all to safety. With the second scroll Kaburo acquired, your progression to the next round was almost assured…. But you needed rest, and were unable to stay awake any longer…..
>>48994406HYPE AS FUCK
Now that Neji's been all infected by snake spit or whatever I'm kinda hoping we get a romance arc with him. Tragic love story, ho. Hopefully better than Sakura and the Sauceman tho
>>48994448Nah. It will be like Sakura's canon life. Neji will be cold and distance. Also, tragic love is overrated.
>>48994476I kinda just want to beat his face in for fun. You know. Epicly.
>>48994533Me, too but Tsuki has to have good ties with the different Clans of the village.
>>48994448He's gotten worse for me. He wasn't giving Hinata as much shit and might have been less of a little shit. Now he's got part of Saske's cannon bitch fit.
>>48994577Eh, he's part evil now. I think we'd be forgiven if he attacked first.>>48994585It's up to Wargle. We'll see how it goes. Neji's tons different from Ketchup.
The peaceful void of sleep is quick to consume you- though that most restful abyss does not lay claim to your mind for long. Even as you teeter just on the precipice of consciousness, you can feel it- the egg, still fastened around your neck.A gentle hand wakes you, along with the smell of spring. “Tsuki, it’s time to wake up!” the voice sings.You’ve heard that voice before, somewhere….You open your eyes; slowly, at first, to adjust to the soft light streaming through the large tree above you.Turning your head, you see her- the little girl from before. Pale white hair, with an oddly cheery disposition, just as before.“Come on, sleepyhead! It’s important, this time!” she pulls your hand, to try and lift you up- but she’s much smaller than you, and thus her struggle is in vain.Something in the back of your mind prods you- something about… a forest?A forest, a test…. and blood.While the fog occluding your mind refuses to leave, the young girl pouts at you, her small brow furrowing.“You’re being mean, Tsuki. It’s really important, I swear!”You…1. Might as well wake up- she’s obviously quite convinced that you need to see…. Whatever is going on.2. I don’t really have time for this, do I? Although… you cannot really remember why….
>>48994627>2. I don’t really have time for this, do I? Although… you cannot really remember why….
>>48994627>1. Might as well wake up- she’s obviously quite convinced that you need to see…. Whatever is going on.
>>48994627>2. I don’t really have time for this, do I? Although… you cannot really remember why….Something seems strange here.
>>48994627> Might as well wake up- she’s obviously quite convinced that you need to see…. Whatever is going on.
>>489946271. Might as well wake up- she’s obviously quite convinced that you need to see…. Whatever is going on.Follow the bunny. Nori can carry us.
>>48994627>1. Might as well wake up- she’s obviously quite convinced that you need to see…. Whatever is going on.What can go wrong?
>>489946271. Might as well wake up- she’s obviously quite convinced that you need to see…. Whatever is going on.
>>48994648It's in the dream world, Anon.
>>489946271. Might as well wake up- she’s obviously quite convinced that you need to see…. Whatever is going on.We the best moon princess.
>>48994627>1 follow the white rabbit
Further down the rabbit hole we go....Writing.
>>48994395Let's do this.
>>48994395Best lunch break ever.
“I’m awake, I’m awake!” you surrender as the little girl continues to pull on you.“There’s not very funny, you know.” she pouts.You chuckle, and briefly consider apologizing, but she’s already dragging you off, her previous attitude lost in her haste.You remember this path, vaguely. The shaded woods leading out into a open grassy plain, where there would be a tree stump… and rabbits. Lots of rabbits.However, none of these things are what you find upon leaving the woods. Instead of a bright grassy plain, a windswept wasteland is all that greets you- barren and lifeless.The little girl is unaffected by this- does she not see it, or has such a time passed that this odd world has changed…..?She leads you for a ways, before, on the edge of your vision, a figure stands.Peering over the edge of a cliffside, is the rabbit storyteller from before; however, she seems different than you remember her. Her fur has gone grey, her finery looking worn and rather shabby. She takes long draws from an ornate pipe, before stowing it when the two of you finally reach her.“Ah, girls, thank you for coming. It has been some time, I fear- and even this place, the prison of our lady, is not safe any longer.” She sighs.“I fear this story shan’t be one with a happy ending, my dears. These humans, they have such an overwhelming need to spoil everything they touch- even other humans. It truly boggles the mind.”The Rabbit storyteller seems to be preparing to tell a tale in progress. Shall you…1. Remain Silent2. Speak up. (and say what?)
>>48995008>1. Remain Silent
>>48995008>2. Speak up. (and say what?)Ask how we can help
>>48995008>1. Remain SilentBun bun story time.
>>48995008>2. Speak up. (and say what?)What happened here?
>>489950082. Speak up. (and say what?)"Can humans not improve with guidance? Not all are bad, I'm sure."OOC, I kinda want the rabbits, but if they are loyal to the whole infinite tsukuyomi shittery, then that's kinda gonna be a hard one to pull.
>>48995008> Remain Silent
>>48995059They are loyal to Kaguya, yes.>>48995008>1. Remain Silent
>>48995059Things are different. We're not sure what they're up to entirely. I don't think there was a weird ass egg in cannon.
1. Remain SilentListen and learn
>>48995059Kaguya is literally their goddess so yeah. No rabbit coup.
Listening to Bun storyWriting.
>>48995129Comfy story time.Someone drawn Tsuki in a Make Konoha Great Again hat like this.
>>48995212Make ROOT great again would be better
>>48995250Has to be konoha.Root is only a means to an end. Which is keeping Konoha safe and prosperous. What good is roots if the tree is dead.
>>48995212Better yet, draw Tsuki wearing comfy pajamas and listening to a story.
>>48995212Just so long as it doesn't drag shitposting in from /pol/
“You might ask yourself- “Are the humans truly so destructive?”“They are of nature, as we are, after all. But yet, they destroy where we do not.”“When our lady offered them eternal peace, and freedom from this cycle of destruction, her own sons betrayed her, and sealed her away.”You remember this story- the tale of the Spirit Tree and it’s guardian.“But what did her sons do with this power, the thing they so feared?”“They taught it to the humans. Not even one generation after their death, humanity returned to it’s old ways- with one more weapon added to their arsenal.”“We observe it all from here, in relative safety- or so we thought.”“But our lady’s second son, with the intent of guarding her prison, brought an army- bound to him by the ties of family. These people, directly descended from our lady, would surely be less destructive?”The storyteller makes a noise- somewhere between a cough and a chortle.“If only it were so. Shortly after they arrived, we took to hiding, for our safety. We were the only other creatures here- surely these humans, with no enemy, all being of the same line, would live peacefully, living out their days guarding an unmoving stone?”She gestures out into the plateau beneath the cliffside on which you are standing- when you focus, you can see them. Corpses.“Isolated from their brethren, they began a dispute over the second son’s will.”“As so often with humans, this dispute turned to violence. They began the cycle of destruction again, this time on their own flesh and blood. It’s unthinkable.”
>>48995323Your on fire tonight Wargle, keep it up.
>>48995323I am wholly enraptured.
“They ravaged this peaceful land, which after it’s creation, was truly unblemished.”“They left nothing. Nothing for their enemies- nothing for themselves. Certainly nothing for us.”“Some of them remain, scattered across the ruins of this place. They will likely die out before too long- for that is the lot of humans; destroy everything until the only thing left to destroy is themselves.”On the battlefield below, you see a single figure- what looks to be a small boy.He’s digging through the corpses, trying to find something. Food, maybe?“I can hope for little better for my children. We cannot make the trip back to the Planet, and surely when our warrens are discovered, the humans will take up the hunt once more.”The storyteller stops speaking for a time- only to begin reciting a prayer.“Our Lady, please, wake from your slumber.”“Grant us, your most loyal servants, the salvation we require.”“Without your divine grace, we are lost- but yet, I pray not for myself but for those to come.”“Return to us, Our Lady Kaguya, and save our doomed world from itself.”“Grant us the everlasting peace you so desired.”“....Please, Lady Kaguya….”Her voice breaks down into a sob- it’s then you release that the storyteller is crying.You aren’t sure what to say- the young girl, your companion in this place, is hugging her knees, close enough to touch the storyteller, but does not. Her face seems a mixture of sadness and frustration.You….1. Continue to say silent.2. Offer Sympathy.3. Offer Assistance.4. Offer Vengeance.

Offering assistance and sympathy.Writing.
>Tsuki gets a temporary buff from the bunnies>Wakes up to find the Sound ninja have attacked her team while she was asleep>Angry Stellar noises until they're all dead>Goes back to sleep
You feel compelled to offer something to the storyteller- help, or, at the very least, some sympathy.While you don’t necessarily agree with the anti-human sentiment, it’s hard not to see why these poor creatures would hold that view. You reach out to touch the storyteller- and feel a decidedly odd sensation. Your hand goes right through her- as if she wasn’t actually there.“You are merely a visitor, Tsuki. As much as we may wish, we cannot offer them physical comforts- and our words would mean precious little- even this scene is one from the past.”You turn to see the young girl speaking, although she is still hugging her knees.“There is a way to help, though, if you truly wish to. These poor folk still cling to life- but barely. If you were to offer them succor, they would surely aid you in any way they could. To say humans have treated them poorly is an understatement, but you are different.”“You can save them.”“You must-” her voice fades out to silence- and is replaced with a terrible headache.S͒͗͋͆ͭ̍ͮͫ̒ͯ͂ͬ̎͐́̚͜҉̷̙̤͎͕̼͕̙͠A̴̟͍̭̝̩̦̱̞̭͕͆ͪ͌̀ͅͅV̵̧̼͓̞̞̬̫̟̙̤͔̠̞̿́ͮͦͨ͌́͐ͬ͛̉̐̆͞͠E̢ͮ̏̅̎͂̓͑̒̔͑ͧ̋̆͌̾͌ͣ̄͏̮̭̺̜̤͇̰̠̯͉̜̘ ̨̥͈̞̹̲̣͙̣̖̞͖͇̖̦̖̞̺͆̂ͩ͋͆̽͋̓ͧͫ͢T̢̡̰̻̹̹̰̪͇̲́̅ͪ̂̔͂̐̿̎͝Ḧ̷̢̡͓͕͙͈͈̫͙̖̳̿̓̒̋̓̎ͩͫͯ͌̑͞E̷̬͉̘̭̬̮̩̖̗̥͆̔̽͊̎̉̎ͭ͌̿̃͠͞M̨ͩ͛͋́͟҉͍̻̘̪͚
>>48996013Vampiric blood bunnies for the win
>>48996013Well, clearly we must be a champion of the downtroddenIt's so wrong for ninja fights to incur such reckless collateral damage!
>>48996013>>48996044>succor>sucker aka foolYou guys are too easy. Also,>Wanting to be rabbit slave to a goddess that wants to genocide the human race
>>48996064No thanks, Doesn't sound very Tsukiish.
Welp save the cathulu bunnies
>>48996070I just figured it'd be blood because you make a blood contract with summons. Eh.>>48996093What would be more Tsuki-like? Smushing the downtrodden under our heel?
>>48996070Succornoun1. assistance and support in times of hardship and distress.
>>48996109Yes thats what corporations do anon
>>48996109>What would be more Tsuki-like? Smushing the downtrodden under our heel?Not blindly following something. We are smarter than that. Look at things from multiple perspectives.
>>48996109No, Ignoring them since they did nothing to or for us.
>>48996127We should embody a japanese corporation.One that doesnt just blindly run after profits, one that looks after its employees as well.
>>48996109Making them work for her. But since they're completely loyal to their goddess, they don't see them betraying her. Also, shouldn't Tsuki protect the village from any threat?>>48996126The words sound similar.
>>48996149>He thinks Japanese corps are different from Western oneAnon, all corps from around the world are brutal and corrupt to a point. The Japanese corps are just better at hiding it.
>>48996013Gotta admit, while following the bunnies blindly wouldn't be smart, trying to help them out without selling out all of humanity seems like something we might try in the future. We have the egg, and it's obviously trying to tell us something important. Besides, what twelve-year-old doesn't want to do a little savior-ing?
>>48996149>one that looks after its employees as wellYou...REALLY don't know anything about working for a Japanese corporation, do you, anon?
>>48996149>implying all corporations aren't run by idiots>>48996183>thiswe could be a bridge between the rabbits and humanity, let them see that there is goodness, but also make people aware that maybe super-powered child soldiers might have some negative impacts
>>48996183>selling out all of humanity seems like something we might try in the future>Elimiting the customersNot a good business practice, Anon. Also, Tsuki is much smarter than the average 12-year-old.
>>48996221nigga are you blind? did you not read his post?>while following the bunnies blindly wouldn't be smart, trying to help them out without selling out all of humanity seems like something we might try in the future
I'm not advocating helping Moon Bitch, but I don't think I could stand idly by and let the rabbits go extinct.
>>48996221I said without selling out all of humanity. Read again.
>>48996240He doesn't like Bunnies so he's slanting everything.
>>48996201>>48996242I like the sound of both of these. Trying to find some sort of compromise, or at least helping out the rabbits without screwing over humanity, seems like a good goal to have.
to be fair, we actually know nothing about Kaguya, and Wargle's characters have been different from the manga/anime often enough that she might not even be Moon Hitler. I'd be surprised if we were totally unable to convince her not to be the Bad Guy.
...What?You can barely make out what she said- the pain is intense….!As you clutch your head in pain, the young girl seems somewhat surprised, before her face takes on a scowl. ̶̧͠͏̕ ͏̶͟͝͡ ̡̢̧͡҉ ̡̀͢ ̕͢͡͞ ́͡͝ ̧͢͟͏̛ ͏̕҉̨͠ ̷̨͢͢͝ ̵̧͠ ͏͞͏̧ ͢͢͝͞ ̕͝ ̷́̀͘͞ ͢ ҉͠͏̀ ҉̷̨͜ ̨͟͞͝͏ ̷̡̕ ̷͢͞ ̵͟ ̵͝ ̕͟ ͘͏ ̧͏ ͜͡҉́ ̶̴̛͠ ͏̷̢̧ ̶̷̧ ̢̨̕ ̶͢ ͏̶́ ̶̨̛̛͠ ̀͏̸̷͡ ̡͝ ̴̀̕ ̶̵͡͝͏ ҉̶̴̢͘ ̵̵͟ ̶̀̕ ̸̶̧́ ͘͝ ̴̀͘͢͟ ̴̶̷͠ ̷̧̛ ̛̀̕͜ ̵͢͝ ̸̀ ̵̵͘͞ ̴̛͟͏͘ ҉̧̕͞҉ ̵̀͘͜N͞҉̢̕͜Ò̶̵̧͝͝͝͡͏ ̷̸͝͡͡ ̛͞ ̢́̀͜ ̧̡̛̀͡ ̢́ ̧̛͞͡ ͟͜҉͏̧ ̴͘҉ ́͏̷ ̢̕̕͜͞ ̢̀ ̴̸͞͝ ̷̡͡ ̷̵͘ ̵̶͡ ͠ ̵͡ ̷̨̢҉ ̛͜͏̕͘ ̛́͘͟ ̢̧̡͞Ý́́͏͡Ơ͞U͠ ͏҉C̷҉͏͟A̷͝N̶̕N̶̶͡Ớ̷͢T̸͠ ͟͏H̡̕͘Ą̸̡́̀V̸̕͞҉̀E̵̡͜ ̢̛͘Ḩ͝E̴͏̀͡R̕͢,̨̀͞ ̴̧̀Ş̸̧̡͡H͝҉E͘̕͞ ̵Í̢̢̛͡Ş̷̢̕͞ ̵̕͠M̴͟I̸̴Ǹ͠҉͢E̢̧͟͟͢ ̵ ͜͝ ҉͟ ͢҉͏͘ ̴̸̵̢ ̨̛͏̴ ̷́ ̷̧̀͢͝ ̷͟͏̴̨ ̀҉̷̡̨ ̨́̀͘ ̷̷̢͞ ̕͘ ̛́͝ ͝͏̴͢ ̵̷͠ ̢͟͜͜͢ ͏̷҉̧ ͏̨͟Ì̛ ̛̛W̷̕͜I҉̀͏͠L̨͝͏̀L̵̡ ́́́̀N̵̢Ơ̧T̕͜ ̵̨̕͟͠L̴̛E͏̀͢͟͞T̷̸͘͡ ̧̡Ỳ̵̧Ò͜͝Ú͟͠͠҉ ̸̸̡͞T̵Ą̵̶̶͢Ḱ̷̨É̵̸̡ ͜H̶̷̢͡È̶҉̕R̢̧̕ ̴͏̴̧͝F͜҉͠R̷͟͠O̵̴̢͢͢M̴͜͝ ̢͘͜͞M̧È̴̡͢͝҉ ̨͢͞͡ ͞͏ ̧͜͠͠ ̸̢̡́̕ ̨̧͢ ̵̢̨̛͡ ̡͜ ̸́͟͠͡ ̵͜ ̡͢͝҉̀ ͏͏́ ҉͞ ͞҉̀ ͘͢͡ ̸̴̴͜͝ ̸̡͝͡͠ ̨́̀ ͟͝ ̸̕͢ ̢́ ̀͏̵̡ ̷̸̕̕ ͜ ̢́͠͏ ̀̀͢͏ ̧̧̢͡ ͏͘ ͏͘͜͡͞ ̡҉̷̷́ ̶̡͞ ̶̢̀͢ ̶̷̛́ ̵̷̢̕͢ ̴̵̶̢͢ ̕͞ ̕ ̀͟͠͝ ̶̸̨ ̕͠ ̡͘͡ ̕͢͠ ͏̷̶S̨̨̛Ḩ̀͞͝͡Ę ̸҉́I͡͞͡͠Ş̨ ̵͘̕͢C҉̵H̡́͢O̷̷͞Ś̴̡͜E̡̡͏̵N͏̵͜͟͝
>>48996196thats the working culture. and its not like you dont see those ridiculous hours in western firms. asian firms do reward that type of loyalty better.
I suppose we might as well get some rabbits in our underground base... I'm now imagining a rabbit in a lab coat testing a vial of something...hmm
>>48996311Yeah well fuck you too!
>>48996334Who gives a shit about the employees were at the top our goal should be expanding our control across the nations
ARGH! The pain is too-There is a loud crash- as if glass was breaking all around you.Still clutching your head, you stare upwards- the sky was broken away, revealing a vast storm.Four pairs of eyes, gleaming through the dark, swirling clouds, peer from above.“SHE IS NOT YOURS TO TAKE, USURPER”Four loud voices thunder in unison.“HER DESTINY HAS YET TO UNFOLD- WE WILL NOT LET YOUR DISTORTED TRUTHS LEAD HER DOWN A FALSE PATH”In response, the little girl seems to be shrieking- nothing coming out of her mouth is intelligible.
>>48996311Oh shit are they after HinataIs this that long con shit
>>48996356I knew it. Never trust supernatural cute things.
>>48996356Fuck yeah!Four Beasts to the rescue!
>>48996356Well I have NO idea what the fuck is going down now!
>>489963564 directional beasts?
>>48996342ROOT+Shinju flower+Rabbits=ROOT GARDENThere is also the significant chance to have our own moon base.Can YOU turn down a moon base?I want a moon base.
>>48996398The seemly innocent rabbits are liars?
>>48996356everyone wants a piece of tsuki
Can we get back the exam instead of this dream bullshit?
>>48996356HAHA! TIME FOR alcoholism
>>48996398The Four Beasts want to save Tsuki from the clutches of Kaguya.
Well we've heard the big bosses.Time to save rabbits from themselves
>>48996411Yeah, trust the giant demonic sky-eyes. Surely they could NEVER lead us astray!
>>48996420Cool your tits, Anon. It's about to end.
>>48996420>>48996429Nah. Just ignore the bunnies.>>48996432It's the Four Beasts. Not demons.
>>48996432Hey, they're honest in their appearance like others.
>>48996411While I'd say the directional beasts are fairly trustworthy, there could just be a conflict of interest here. With neither side trying to mislead us, but both wanting our assistance in some way.
>>48996356>Usurperdamn it, all I can think about is thishttps://youtu.be/VMNASJjE92U
>>48996451ideolouges are all pains. At least tsuki is a business woman. We might be able to come to some arrangement of brokered peace in the end.
>>48996498I highly doubt that.
>>48996498Eeeh, I don't think powerful beings would want peace with their enemies. It's side with one and destroy the other.
The world around you begins to melt away- as if it one of Maru’s frozen treats in the heat of the Konoha summer.“WAKE”You resist, slightly- but the dream is already fading.Before the abyss takes you again, you are left with a single image-That of the Rabbit Storyteller, standing alone on that cliffside, drowning in her own despair.--------------------------------------------------------------------------You wake. The smell of rain is followed by it’s sound….Opening your eyes, you peer around the cave. Everyone seems to be sleeping- except Shikamaru, who is standing guard near the cave entrance. The darkness of night seems to have fully enveloped the forest- the moonlight streaming in through the forest canopy barely illuminates the outside of the cave.You think about talking to Shikamaru- but you really don’t have much to say. You’re still sort of tired- you really wish you had Yume right now. You opt to make the best of it, and roll over, covering yourself with the bedroll. You just hope a dreamless sleep awaits.
>>48996411How could you slander the good, trustworthy name of the moon rabbit?
>>48996707to be fair, that's an earth rabbit.
>>48996721Even more trustworthy. How could you look at that face and see a liar?
Well fuck me with a stick three ways until sunday and call me a whore. I hope Wargle let's us have a summon on each arm.
>>48996886He's wary about that.
>>48996886Too OP already. And besides, I don't think two entities would like to work together unless they're on the same side.
>>48996894>>48996905The issue is, I don't think I could choose between any of the 4 direction deities and the Rabbits. I don't want them to die
You sleep fitfully, but that little sleep is thankfully dreamless. After a few attempts, you finally give up around dawn.You rise, and walk over to relieve Shikamaru.“Shikamaru, have you slept?” you inquire, rubbing the sleep from your eyes.“I’ll be fine.” He grumbles.“Go rest. I’m fine, now.”He sighs, but heads back towards the bedrolls all the same.Not too long before dawn, thankfully- soon you’ll be able to get out of this forest.After a few uneventful hours, the rest of the team begins to wake. You immediately take charge- you aren’t going to let any of these guys order you around.“So, here’s plan:” you dictate as your teammates and allies ready themselves.1. We’re making a beeline out of this place: We have enough scrolls, if we go fast enough, running into other teams shouldn’t be an issue.2. We’re going to proceed cautiously, and avoid other teams at all costs.3. Purposefully take a roundabout route- this should be safest, if time consuming.

>>48996954>2. We’re going to proceed cautiously, and avoid other teams at all costs.we all got what we wantedwe got like 2-3 days anyway
>>48996954>2. We’re going to proceed cautiously, and avoid other teams at all costs.Our beeline probably doesn't amount to enough to be worth it.
>>48996954>2. We’re going to proceed cautiously, and avoid other teams at all costs.>>48996936The Beasts. At least with them, you have a chance to be at their level and be respected.
>>48996954>2. We’re going to proceed cautiously, and avoid other teams at all costs.No need to be overly slow, but avoiding a fight should be a priority, and going fast is asking for trouble.
I think other teams will actually be avoiding us.Group up of 3 teams? Even if 1 or 2 are out of it?They'll stay away and even if they do try to attack, we've got most everything we need to fuck any team save gaaras in the ass repeated.
>>489969542.Let's utilize some good old ninja stealth.
So who knows about Stellar for sure?TsukiDanzoOrorchimaruNori Choji ? he'd probably tell his teammates
>>48997063We don't know about Nori or Choji.And I think Yoru may know. Or have some inkling. Though I could be wrong about that.
When it comes to revealing stellar in the exams lets wait for a good moment, we can't just blow our hype load at the first chance
>>48997063Wasn't Choji busy taking Hinata and the others to a safe space?
>>48997063We sent Nori and Choji away. But id add Kabuto to the list, most likely.

>>48997109Sneaky beaky like.
>>48997063Got to assume that everyone saw it. Nori definitely saw it.
>>48997109We should probably take the time out to talk to Nori and Hinata about that.
>>48997171I'd rather not. In case we have to fight them, that is.
>>48997197Nori will probably ask us about it later i think when we're safe.Can imagine her watching us fight pedosnek at a near footing for a while. I'm actually quite hype for how this will inspire her to improve for the finals.
>>48997219She already seems to know the hirashin to some extent
>Nori carrying us>Spooky sky eyesAw Kurama oji-san cares or knows how catastrophic her return would be
>>48997238I dont think she'll just sit on that. I expect her to train doubly hard.
[HIGHEST DC: 80] SUCCESSThe nine of you head out into the forest, trying to be as stealthy as possible.While some of you are weakened and not up to full strength, between the nine of you (including 2 Byakugan) you are able to sneak past the few shinobi teams you encounter. Specifically, the Sound shinobi make a point of attempting to find you- it’s only due to Hinata and Neji that you’re able to avoid them on several occasions. By the end of the third day, you’ve reached the end of the treeline- it’s only flat open land between here and the tower- which dominates the evening skyline. Should you are you party attempt to cross now?1. Yes, let’s get out here!2. No, let’s wait til nightfall.
So whats our plans for crippling the other major villages economies?
>>48997327>1. Yes, let’s get out here!
>>48997327>3.Have Hinata/Neji scan the area
>>48997327>1. Yes, let’s get out here!"Shikamaru, what formation do you recommend."
>>48997327>1. Yes, let’s get out here!Hinata and Neji look around with Byakugan, and reeeeeeeally look, make sure there's no one around for like a mile in each direction
>>48997327>1. Yes, let’s get out here!prep first though. How is everyone condition, make it a point to specifically ask about ino and neji. They were in the worst situations.and yes, >>48997357 have shikamaru plan out the approach.
>>48997327>1. Yes, let’s get out here!>>48997339Kuro plushies. We'll fucking bankrupt them.
>>48997327Seconding>>48997357And have the Byakugan users scan the area.
>>48997327>1. Yes, let’s get out here!Most other teams will be waiting, and we have clear numerical superiority along with two Byakugan users. Punching straight through is actually our best strategy.
>>48997339Not cripple but take over with the power capitalism! Sell them goods they need and shit they don't!
>>48997339Rabbit slave labor factories undercutting their industry. Make Konoha into China and suck up all the manufacturing.
>>48997409As far as we know they already have what they need and would be very reluctant to let a konoha based company build a monopoly
>>48997339>>48997409Nah.You need to trap them.First help the villages sign a trade deal where the village cannot ban or stop flow of goods and material and vice versa and will work to enforce intellectual property rights and copyrights. Sell the goods at a decent price, not too expensive markup after R&D and material costs.THEN. Trap them with the trademarked and proprietary consumables and servicing packages.
>>48997468Did you just write up the Naruto version of the TPP?Christ.
>>48997468>servicing packagesYou evil piece of shit.
1. Pushing through, after some Byakugan Scans and strategy conferences. Writing.
>>48997484>>48997500Your praise fills me with joy.
>>48997468>>48997528we aren't playing a villain you fucking monster
>>48997553We aren't playing the hero either anon
>>48997454>>48997468We need to globalize, turn the konoha office into just another branch, set up shop in every village and claim neutrality. Then outsource the materials and labor to the lowest common denominator and drop prices, pushing national corporations out of business or forcing them to sign trade agreements with us for access to our other markets. Manipulate the contries we have our branches in to "liberate" other countries with access to raw materials and/or cheap labor so we can drive the cost down even lower. Then we can undermine the industry of the big five and push the world into instability and potential world-war. But since everyone is so interdependent because of our multi-national conglomerate they can't fight, and instead have to use more and more litigation. Eventually the burden becomes too large and they're forced to merge into one world union, ruled by us.
>>48997579Agreed we just need Konoha on top with the Hokage as our figurehead while we run the show from the curtains
>>48997566Don't need to run a state. Push bribes to the lords to push for Norihime Group extraterritoriality on company land.
>>48997566All you need is for the tailed beasts to have their own corporations and you got yourself a weeby shadowrun setting.
>>48997616a future Kakuzu would approve ofa world where hell does, in fact, run on money
>>48997616I freaking love that idea
Holding before the end of the treeline, you have Hinata and Neji scan the nearby area. Neji still looks winded- and that strange mark hasn’t gone away. Thankfully you haven’t had to engage in combat; you don’t want him getting hurt.They both report the same thing- no teams nearby- however one team is standing in front of the tower entrance, and hasn’t moved.Shikamaru looks concerned at this- you can tell his lazy brain is doing laps weighing his options. “Formation won’t be that important- we need to keep our injured in the middle, though. The plan is this- we’re going to wait until another team makes for the entrance, and follow them.”It sounds safe- although you’ll need to come from behind so they don’t attack you outright. You…1. Agree with this plan2. Come up with something else.
>>48997662Do you realise what you might have done.
>>48997680>1. Agree with this plan
>>48997680>2. Come up with something else.how much time do we have before the exams are over? can we wait until the last possible moment and hope the other team has left?
>>48997680>1. Agree with this planHave negi rest up more.
>>48997579>>48997590>>48997605We don't RUN a state, we CREATE a state totally dependent on us economically and militarily, and then have them control everyone else. >>48997616I'm pretty sure that with chakra computers it's literally possible to hack people's brains with genjutsu viruses.>Ninja hackers on steroids>cyber-ninja digital-warfare>Yamanakas projecting their digitized souls into computers to possess robots and read the minds of hard-drives>sealing tailed beats into computer programs and injecting them via malware into enemy villages where they can de-digitize and blow everything up>Puppet masters using chakra strings to type on dozens of keyboards at once>futuristic Aburame with cybernetic kikaichu that can eat computer data and spread viruses digitally
>>48997680>2. Come up with something else.Send out a jutsu or two to force them to split up and have one of our people who are ready to fight take on each of the ninja while the rest escort our wounded to the tower
>>48997680Transformed shadow clones of our team. Have them go and lead the other group away. Make a break for the tower when we're far enough away then dismiss the clones.
>>48997680>2. Come up with something else.For a Shikamaru plan, that's... uncharacteristically shortsighted. If we follow another team that's making a move for the tower they'll probably have a scroll and be expecting to be attacked right at the end: just like we are. Following them from behind will probably just cause a fight to break out.
>>48997680>1. Agree with this planIt's probably the sand brats.
>>48997744Actually, they might just try to outrun us and reach the tower before us.
should probably visit Neji some time after this so he doesn't go full emo
>>48997770Agreed. We need to make sure he doesn't feel total sausage, and still had a place in this village.
>>48997770Hinata was hit hard too by orochimaru. We can see both at their clan house after they get discharged by medic-nins.
>>48997680>1. Agree with this plan>>48997714stop, no, it's too cool
Accepting the plan- with some Norihime alterations.Writing.
>>48997770sounds fine to me
You look hard at Shikamaru. You noticed it before, but it seems more obvious now. Dark bags under his eyes, his dull, uninterested tone- he likely didn’t sleep last night, meaning he hasn’t slept at all this entire time.“Shikamaru, you’re sleep deprived. Your plan has some holes.” you tease.He keeps an even gaze, but doesn’t say anything.“Not that it’s wrong, or anything.” You muse. “But we can spruce it up a little.”“For one, we can’t be sure another team is coming. Therefore, I suggest…”Using the Shadow Clone technique, you create two clones. You motion to them as if giving a demonstration- though you doubt this pitch will need much *oomph*.Using the Transformation Technique, you alter the two clones to look like somebody you know isn’t coming- two of the Ame ninja from the castle. “We’ll use them. We have our own decoy team.” you say with a smile.The others quickly agree, while Shikamaru just shrugs.“There are other teams out there, Norihime. Your plan is far more risky. But, it still should work.”It certainly is more risky, and harder for you to maintain- both shadow clones and the illusion require basically your full attention.You send them around the tree-line, and give them about a 15 minute head start.Then, in formation, your nine spring forth, heading towards the entrance.As you approach, the acrid stench of blood hits your nose-Then you see the corpses. Several shinobi corpses, seemingly stripped to the bone, their clothes ragged.
Who could’ve done this…. So close to the doors? The three figures in the distance, standing across from your two clones, come into view.….The children of the Kazekage? Surely they weren’t the ones who caused all this carnage, were they? Temari didn’t seem like a bad sort- though there were some unsettling rumors about her brother, Gaara…..“It’s getting crowded, Temari.” The redhead says, eying your approaching group.The other two, Temari and her other brother Kankuro, seem to defer to their youngest sibling.“We have our scroll, Gaara. Why don’t we head inside? Eleven enemy shinobi are too many….” Temari says, while staring directly at Kankuro.“Yeah, Gaara. Let’s go inside. You’ll get to fight them all anyway.” He says, looking rather disgusted.“You aren’t wrong, Kankuro. However…..” Gaara smiles- it’s not a particularly pleasant look for him.“I’m not done yet.”
>>48998188aw goddammit.We should have waited for an actual team.
>>48998188Wargle close are we to our usual strength?
>>48998204The only people in the party at full strength are Choji and Nori.Everyone else varies between near useless to two third's strength.
>>48998188Is Tsuki Norihime gonna hafta glass a bitch?
>>48998239And where does Tsuki fall on that?
>>48998252Close to near useless, I think.
>>48998260>>48998252She's about half strength- the sleep helped her recover, and Orochimaru didn't hurt her much at all. She's just beat.
>>48998260We were in good enough condition to use two Shadow Clones earlier, so we probably started off in pretty solid shape. And the chakra from those two returns when they pop, so we'd probably still be able to get off a couple of good shots.
Lovely, he’s a murderous psychopath.He seems perfectly willing to engage you all- while his siblings seemingly want nothing to do with it.Obviously he was strong enough to defeat those other teams- how wary should you really be about this guy?You need a plan, and quickly. 1. Direct your clones to lead him away- hopefully giving you enough time to get inside.2. Appeal to him with words- or try and cut a deal.3. Attack first- there is no reasoning with his kind.
I wonder how Gaara would respond to being given the blood-sucking flower as a gift?Once he's well-incapacitated, of course
>>48998275If we have to, afterglow should have the speed to draw gaara's blood.
>>48998291>1. Direct your clones to lead him away- hopefully giving you enough time to get inside.
>>48998291>1. Direct your clones to lead him away- hopefully giving you enough time to get inside.>>48998292He's from the region where they grow, Anon. I would think he heard of them.
>>48998291>2. Appeal to him with words- or try and cut a deal.>Try to bride him while staying in character, and if that fails challenge him to a one on one and survive long enough until everyones inside then afterglow away
>>489982911. Direct your clones to lead him away- hopefully giving you enough time to get inside.Have one use fire and the other lighting. Make it seem more legit.
>>48998291>1. Direct your clones to lead him away- hopefully giving you enough time to get inside.HEY, PSYCHO, LOOK OVER HERE.
>>48998310weren't they hidden away at the bottom of an ancient, unexplored temple?

I don't think this is going to work. Unless Gaara is a hyperactive murder chipmunk, which to be fair he is. >>48998396If you think of it that way, we just gave 106%! That's better than we did against Orochimaru!

After those rolls I feel like we need some good newsSo here's some insider informationAnd you guys didn't hear this from me, but... Boruto Quest is coming back very soon. Mini's computer broke and he just got a new one.Get ready for best girl Ai to come back
>>48998440Wargle plsIf you keep throwing hilariously overpowered psychopaths at us, we're going to stumble eventually...
>>48998442That put a smile on my face anon Mari best girl
Ok, well my thought is kill gaara right here right now. Blue shift and decapitate him. And the other two if needs be.End him in one blow, so anti climatic it's perfect
>>48998449"Throwing" he says, like they weren't already here.
>>48998491Cut sand nobs head off. Blue shift speed right by him sword swinging and remove his head from his torso
Though you have no effective way of signaling them- they do have your mind- thus viewing this as the best chance you have- and immediately take off. Sand immediately releases from the container on Gaara’s back, and takes off after your clones- the chakra returns to you very quickly after that. He’s… no joke.“There’s no blood….” Gaara says impassively as the sand recollects in his gourd.“Clones.” Temari says with a smirk on her face.“Trying to trick me is…. Unwise.” Gaara says, his face darkening. Seems you’ve made him angry.What would you like to do now?1. Try to talk Gaara down/make a deal2. Fight!3. Do something else! (What?)

>>489985183. Do something else! (What?)Fuck it, blue shift and go with such speed no one can respond, cut his head clean off. Clones distract the other two.Hey its him or us
>>48998518>3. Do something else! (What?)Run like hell.
>>48998518Talk no jutsu!

>>48998565We don't know any.
>>48998563Pft, perfect.Until round 3.
We failed because the clones took the shape of losers. ame ninja have low energy, no class. They need to stop sending their garbage here, they're not sending their best and brightest.You ever see their city? rusted ugly oversized gutter. Not like the Hokage monument. Beautiful and classy with a terrific view. Just Terrific.We should have the clones take the form of winners like Sasuke ,Lee, and that pink haired boy.I blame the schools. Minato has been screwing up since he got the job. Suna has a 12 year old with a YUUUUUUGGGE kill score while a bunch of our best genin and Sai get beat up by a fifty year old drag queen. We need to give our child soldiers the best education they can get. We've been losing since ROOT was shut down (BIG mistake). We need to start winning again people. We need a new Hokage and we need make Konoha great again.>>48998518>1. Try to talk Gaara down/make a dealTsuki is GREAT negotiator. She'll make a terrific deal.
>>48998564They aren't, hotblooded girls are the best. Mari just happens to be hyuuga
>>48998570That sounds reasonable actually.
>>48998573Holy fucking shit
>>48998518you know, >>48998553 has a good point. let's try>1. make a deal.we're both important people from our village, there's no reason for us to hae to fight and possibly kill each other, neither nation would like it and it might spark a war if the kids of a head of state were killed by another kid of a head of state (Nori for our side, their entire team for theirs)
>>48998560Its better then no chance at all which we just saw
>>48998570Other way around. Fire first to lure him into blocking, then hit it with the extra fuel and concussive force.
>>48998588Was it worth running the quest, Wargle?Don't you see where you've lead us?
>>48998599We failed a roll, fucktard. Tsuki had game against fucking Orochimaru until she literally ran out of stamina, Gaara's nothing but hot air.

>>48998663It damn well looks like it makes a difference.
>>48998680Nah, not really.It's a random number generator.
>>48998663Actually, it does. As any oldfag would know the dice feature uses a pseudo-RNG based on the server time. Rolls within 30 seconds of each other tend to cluster, with simultaneous rolls usually producing the same result. Meaning that unless there's some time between the rolls the results aren't truly random.
our only hope(s) is somebody interferes
>>48998696Then explain the cluster of the 30s.
>>48998701nah we aren't dead, Neji's curse mark might activate but that's hopefully it
>>48998704Or we just fight him and win. He's not an invincible juggernaut, it's just not really a fight we want to be having right now based on metaknowledge.Stellar would probably melt him into a corpse with a built-in display case.
>>48998675If he does, we might get by with a night of brainstorming, a BOX OF SCRAPS, and come out of this with a sweet robo limb

>>48998735For the third fucking time, the dice feature isn't a true RNG. It's a pseudo-RNG that uses seeds based on post time that produces increasingly similar ranges of results the closer two posts are.

You quickly run through your options- nothing conventional is going to work here.He’s the son of a Kage- money won’t work. Probably doesn’t really care about his village…Well, there’ always THAT.You gulp slightly- you’ve never really done anything like this before…Deep breath, Tsuki….Gaara’s are darting back and forth- his eyes are bloodshot. He’s obviously waiting for an attack- so you decide to give it to him.You put all your energy behind a shunshin, moving directly next to him-In that split second, you kiss him on the cheek.A silence falls over the twelve shinobi present- nobody moves.DC:SPECIAL SUCCESS!After a few moments, when it’s obvious he’s stunned, you wave the rest of your party through.Temari and Kankuro are bowled over laughing in hysterics- your team keeps an entirely straight face.…..You back slowly inside the holding area for the tower, and shut the doors behind you.

>>48998937It's PSEUDO FUCKING RANDOM, you twat. Moderation actually told us this from day one. I'd thought until now that was general knowledge, but apparently I was wrong.
>>48998957but wanking is the truest love anons will ever have
>>48998963That's what we keep saying.It is random.
>>48998859I thought Gaara got absolute defense.
>>48998963So it is random, yeah.
>>48998950>>48998946>>48998943>>48998933>>48998922DO YOU UNDERSTAND WHAT HAS JUST BEEN UNLEASHED ON THE WORLD? WHAT HORRIBLE MONSTER FROM THE BLACKEST PITS OF INSANITY HAS REARED IT'S HEAD? It isn't confirmed yet, but me might have just created YANDERE GAARA! He already has the abandonment issues, insane bloodlust, and crazy eyes. He even has Love tattooed on his forehead in blood!
>>48998981magic mom sand wants grandchildren
>>48998990Don't be a pussy it'll be fine
>>48998975>>48998982I want to vomit.
Mostly I think this'll just make him try to kill us even harder during the matches, if only so he can make the confusing lady go away.
>>48998990Oh Jesus you're right. Yandere Gaara will be fucking horrible
>>48998990Hopefully he'll kill all other husbandos and then we kill him.
Once inside, everyone erupts in laughter.“PRINCESS!” Nori yells between deep guffaws, “WHAT WAS THAT?”You blush a little.“I did what I needed to do, ok!? I certainly didn’t see any of you coming up with anything.” you respond in protest.There’s some more laughter, but everyone eventually calms down enough to proceed to the main entrance.You are greeted by Genma, leaning against the metal doors leading inside.“Greetings, genin. Seems there are three teams here- I’ll need to be seeing three scrolls of the Underworld before I’ll be letting you pass. Wouldn’t want to send you back out into the company of those sand kids, eh?” he says, before winking at you.….How many people saw that? You feel your stomach churn.You lead, presenting your scroll, taken from the Castle. Genma nods, and you, Nori and Hinata all step inside.Second, Shikamaru, Ino and Choji follow shortly behind, having given Genma the scroll provided by Kabuto.Finally, Neji, Sai and Kabuto file in- with Genma placing his hand on Neji’s shoulder when he sees the mark.“You’ll have two days rest- I’m going to contact Kakashi. Don’t do anything strenuous. Ok?”Neji furrows his brow, but otherwise doesn’t respond. There are several cots spaced out between alcoves within the tower- where you’ll be staying most likely. There… aren’t any other people here. Did those sand siblings really stop everyone who came by?
>>48998981Only works on things that register as a threat otherwise his siblings would be pulp.>Kankuro and Temari trying to ignore the urge to ask him when the wedding is intensifies."Come on, you two are basically pallet swaps!"
>>48999019>we didn't immediately report the Orochimaru encounter to Genma
>>48999019>>48998990>Two days>In a confined space>With Yandere GaaraBy the end of this we'll have the same eyes as him. I don't see much sleep happening.
>>48999026Still, I think unidentified object approaching at super high speed would register as a threat.
>>48999036>Sound ninjas try and talk shit to us>Gaara breaks all their necksIt won't be so bad
>>48999036>first opponent tries to psyche Tsuki out>she incinerates them in one shot so she can finally go sleep
>>48999035He's seen Neji's curse seal. He already knows.
>>48999049A lot of people use seals, anon. Not just Orochimaru. There's probably other evidence that points to it, but I'd imagine the last person to see/fight him would want to share that information.
>>48999056He fucking knows.Why else would he single out Neji?
I wonder if tsunade is able to do anything about removal of that seal.
>>48999035>>48999049>>48999056Presence of the seal should indicate that pedosnek is running about but we should also report that the fucker impersonated other nins to enter the village.If the instructors saw everything inside the forest, they should have come running when he appeared. That they didn't means they must not have known at that point of time.
>>48999062Complex seals are more of an Uzumaki thing, no?
>>48999074>>48999060So Orochimaru WAS part of the exam! DAMN YOU MINATO!
A short time later, the Sand Siblings come inside, along with a shuffling Gaara. It seems that did more than just surprise him, as you intended. He just goes over to the corner with his brother and sister. Temari looks across the floor and winks at you- she’s obviously happy with how things played out.Throughout the day, more teams coalesce into the tower- the Sound Genin, always nipping at your heels, comes within the hour; Team Guy, with Sasuke, Lee and Sakura, files in some time later. The last two teams appear later on with, Team Kurenai, with Shino, Kiba and TenTen appearing when night falls- the final team appearing right as everyone is preparing to sleep.“Hello everyone! Fuu is here!” the girl from Takigakure announces to the assembled party of sleeping Shinobi.She is met with some grumbles, but mostly everyone just ignores her. Once everyone settles in, you slowly drift off to sleep, flanked on either side by Hinata and Nori. The third round will begin soon…. Hopefully you’re prepared for what is to come.
>>48999132YES! BEST GIRL!
And we're ending here because I'm fucking TIRED and it's NOT GOOD FOR WRITING.Thanks for the participation everyone!@WargleQM for smoochesNext thread will likely be saturday.POST THREAD BITCHES.
>>48999132Why does Tsuki keep attracting the most dangerous ones.
>>48999132We are befriending the SHIT out of her. She did not deserve her canon fate.And she will be an excellent minion for the gloriousness that is tsuki.
>>48999149Dangerous? What could you POSSIBLY mean? Fuu is best girl! Ignore the giant murderbug in her soul!
>>48999148Thanks for running, sleep well Wargle!
>>48999148Thanks for running, Wargle!
>>48999149Wait you HAVEN"T been planning to secure the loyalty of as many jinchuriki as possible for the glory of the norihime empire?
>>48999148Thank you for running, Wargle. *Kiss*
>>48999152What happens to her?
>>48999160Hey, Chomei's alright.Personality wise.If you can ignore being a giant murder beetle.
>>48999171The norihime empire requires factories and hard workers, not WMDs.
>>48999175Orphan for most of her life, maintains cheerful and naive optimism despite it, has one friend in her entire village, (the rest just kinda ignores her, but they're not malicious about it) grabbed by akatsuki and sacrificed almost the instant she steps outside it.Also the waterfall village has "hero water", a very powerful chakra steroid which I would LOVE to get tour hands on for research purposes.
>>48999186>Inb4 omg, cousin Tsuki! I haven't seen you in forever!>Cue girl talk with Fuu, Temari and Rock Lee>Crying Murder tanuki and confused Gases.
>>48999203>Autocorrect Gaara to gases.Well okay.
>>48999185Isn't he actually really bro, just totally blase about murder?>>48999203...Holy shit that hair.Holy shit she's an orphan.>"DAD! I FOUND A LONG-LOST COUSIN! CAN WE KEEP HER?!"
>>48999185Seriously though, seven tails is pretty fuckin strong, and his jinchuuriki can fly. Fuu would make a great ally.
>>48999213Wait a second, their eyes are the same color too.
>>48999213Well yeah he'd be fine to watch the kids or whatever but I wouldn't say he's make an aces diplomat or anything.As for the other one, that is also me so.>Also skin tone, same sort of gene mutation causes both eye colors irl.I'm not saying it has to happen, I'd just like it to.
>>48999226...even if wargle didn't plan this, I will be downright DISAPPOINTED if it's not canon now, and we get a chance to bring her into the family.
The idea of any of those betas from Waterfall having sex with Tsuki's mom deeply offends me.
>>48999245not gonna lie, tsuki being all excited about having a new little sister would be fucking ADORABLE.And waterfall IS a small village, they'd probably go for the chance to form strong ties with a powerful one like leaf and the norihime, especially seeing as how the kurama attack likely caused much less damage in this timeline and the yellow flash is still hokage.>>48999253We weren't suggesting that, we were saying that some norihime at some point split from the family and gave birth to fuu over in waterfall. We'd be cousins at most.
>>48999263the idea of anybody in Waterfall having sex upsetsI saw the OVAthey totally suck
>>48999263She has no canon last name, either! She's totally our long lost cousin and we NEED to call dibs.
>>48999301Wouldn't be Norihime.It's be through Tsuki's mother's family.
Ain't the norihime from the land of hotsprings
>>48999080We could ask Danzo to look into it, he's rather adept at fuinjutsu from what I remember in the manga.
>>48999811Heck, we've got jiraiya here in town. He probably knows a thing or two about how to deal with his former fellow turned pedosnek.
