Welcome to Another Dragon Ball Quest ™ , a quest all about a young kid in the world of Dragon Ball and their involvement in many of the series iconic events. From Radditz to Beerus, there's no telling how far you'll go, or at least how long you can last till you get sent to another dimension!>How do we play?This quest functions like any other, options on what to do are brought up, using A,B,C,D, etc, and everyone of YOU votes on what you'd like the character to do. Write-In's are encouraged! Also, we will be using a system I've seen SOM(Another great DBZ Quest Maker) use recently. For easy tasks, such as fighting normal humans or doing mundane chores, you'll roll a d20, for normal tasks such as fighting opponents who are of equal or slightly higher strength, or trying to pull off more difficult moves, you'll roll a d50, and for hard tasks, like fighting people who are much stronger than you, or fighting multiple opponents at once that have an equal strength to you, you'll roll a d100. >Do you use Bo3 or Bo5?Neither, I find that Best of 3 is too cruel sometimes, and that Best of 5 is too lenient. So we'll be doing a Best of 4. That means the first 4 rolls are the only ones that count, and that the highest number rolled will be the one used.>So what kind of character will we be able to make?You'll be playing as a young, non-human child around the same age as Gohan was at the beginning of DBZ. >Wait, we don't get to decide if we want to play a regular human or a dog president?Not exactly, while you'll be deciding some backstory traits and how you'll be starting this adventure off, I've realized that my limitations as a QM mean I have a hard time working with a completely group created character, so think of this as me throwing you a template that you can mess around with. >How do we get stronger? We have to fight Raditz one on one with our eyes closed!Increasing your Power Level is simple. Every once and a while I'll have you roll a d50, and the higher you roll the higher your power increases. For instance, rolling a 1-9 means you only increased your power by ten, while rolling a 40-49 means you increased your power by 80, and a solid 50 woul've increased it by 160. So basically it doubles each tier.>Are we a boy or a girl?Your decision. Though that decision won't come up right away. Figured this would be a fun little thing that people could discuss as the story goes along. >Are you sticking completely to cannon or can we change things?Your actions affect the world, who's the say whether or not Vegeta leaves Earth alive like in the manga, or if Chaouzu ends up the strongest Earthling. Anything can happen.
>Now it's time for your first big decision!What's your characters name?>A. Nilla>B. Anise>C. Saff>D. Cayenne>E. Basil(I may have gotten carried away with the theme there)
>>1521930>ThymeIf no write in>A
>>1521950Shoot, forgot to include an option for a write in, yeah Write-in's are totally fine.
>>1521963Cool.>non-SOM DB questHard to be worst than one.
>>1521930>C. SaffAre there going to be crits on dice rolls?
>>1522012Aw come one, I actually like SOM.
I'm gonna' give it another ten and then roll for the two options picked by you guys to decide what the name is.
Rolled 2 (1d2)1. >>15219502. >>1522020
>>1522114Alright looks like we're going with Saff as the characters name.Now for the next decision. When do you guys want this quest to start? We can start just as Raditz arrives, giving you a power level of 80.Or we can set it a few months back, right after the events of Dead Zone, and you'll have a power level of 70 but a chance to increase it, have an adventure or two before Raditz arrives, and maybe even meet some of the main characters.>A. The day Raditz arrives>B. Right after Dead Zone.
>>1522124>>B. Right after Dead Zone.Let's be established before the main plot starts up.
>>1522124>B. Right after Dead Zone.
>>1522021I do too, but he tends to pull some bullshit.>>1522124>B
>>1522178>>1522185Okay, writing(Sorry, nobody was responding so I went to go play a competitive match in OVerwatch)
Age 761It's been five years since Goku defeated Piccolo Jr. at the World Martial Arts Tournament, ensuring a short reign of peace for most, if not all, of the world. You are Saff, a young, red skinned child with a mysterious past. You awoke one morning a year ago with no memory of who you are, or where you came from. Wandering around, you had come across other groups of people. Though your strange appearance was worrying at first, your general attitude of willing to help quickly gained their trust. Since you had no recollection of your past name, the people decided to name you Saff, after the red colored spice Saffron due to your red skin color.After few months of working, and earning some old hand me down clothes from the farmers previous children, you decided to set out in the world and try and figure out who you are and where it was you came from. So you went out....>A.) Head to wards the East District, mostly farmlands but who knows what you'll find out there.>B.) Head to wards West City, home of Capsule Corp and one of the larger Metropolitan areas.>C.) Head to wards the Crane School, famous martial arts school.>D.) Write in)
>>1522382>>C.) Head to wards the Crane School, famous martial arts school.
Gonna' give it another 10 then writing.
>>1522401The Crane School! From what you've heard from other people, it's one of the more prestigious schools of Martial Arts, though for a long time they were mostly associated with the assassin Tao, his brother being in charge of the school.You wonder if the people at the Crane School are nice or not, but you try not to let the thought settle too long as you climb up the many, many, MANY stairs leading up to the school itself.After what seems like a while you finally reach the top, standing just outside of the entrance to the school you can't help but smile. And look, there's already two bald men standing outside to greet you!"Hi!" You shout, causing the two Crane Students to jolt awake and look around in worry, before finally noticing your short form. "Um, hello." One of them replies, offering you a small nod while the other furrows his brow as he stares at you. "Can I help you with something?"You nod, pointing at the door to the school. "Yeah, I wanna' go inside!" You start to walk forwards, but the nicer of the two gently places a hand on your shoulder, pushing you right back to your spot. "Huh?" "I'm sorry, but this isn't a playground for children. We're a serious martial arts school, and-""And we don't have time to babysit children, so move it!" The other bald man growls at you.>A. Stand your ground, you're not leaving.>B. Ask them to please let you inside.>C. Try to slip past them.>D. Fight them.>E. Write in
>>1522633B. Ask them to please let you inside.
>>1522695"Please? I'm trying to find out who I really am, and I heard that martial artists are really good at that kind of stuff."The kinder bald one nods his head. "Yes, trying to find enlightenment is a staple of all martial arts.""...Actually I meant it literally." You reply, causing the two men to trip over themselves. "I've got no memory of anything past a year ago."The two of them look at each other in silence for a second, the meaner of the two finally letting out an exhale before turning and opening the gates. "Fine, but don't expect our master to be as understanding as we are!"The kinder one nods. "Yes, Master Tien was a pupil taught directly by the previous master, Shen, and his ruthlessness is legendary in these parts."You gulp, legendary huh? Still, you didn't come all this way to just get called a scaredy cat. Walking forward, you enter the main grounds of the school, and are surprised to see many more bald men, all of them setting cross legged on the ground and meditating. "Good luck young one." The kinder one says before the doors are closed behind you.You walk forward a bit, looking closely at the men in front of you and finally noticing that quite a few of them appear to be in great pain, but how? From what you can tell they're just sitting there. A few meters away, on the deck sits another bald man with three eyes, he too seems to be meditating, but he's dressed much more impressively than the others. >A. Wait for the meditation session to end>B. Ask if anyone could point you to wards Master Tien.>C. Just walk up to the man sitting on the deck and ask him if he's Tien.>D. Write in
>>1522813C. Just walk up to the man sitting on the deck and ask him if he's Tien.
>>1522907Well, you're not going to get anywhere just by standing around. Walking past the meditating men, and getting a few annoyed glares for ruining their concentration, you hop up onto and stand in front of who you presume to be Tien. "Hi!" Oddly enough his concentration doesn't seem to have been broken, even with you shouting right in his face. "Helloooooo." You wave your hands in front of his face, and his eyes suddenly shooting open scares you enough that you tumble backwards and onto the courtyard. "Ow." A couple of the students snicker at your accident, and as you start to stand back up you see a well calloused hand offered out in front of you. "Oh, thanks." Looking you, you can see that it belongs to Tien himself."Sorry about that," He starts, and while his voice sounds calm his eyes betray the fact that he's giving you the once over. "But it's usually not a good idea to disrupt someone when they're meditating.""I uh..." You gulp before offering out your dirt stained hand. "I'm Saff, I'm looking for Master Tien."He eyes you a bit, which with three of them is super creepy, but shakes your hand nonetheless. "I'm Tien Shinhan, but only students of the Crane School can call me Master." Right, that makes sense. "So Saff, what is it you need me for?">A. I'm trying to find out who I am, I heard Martial Artists are pretty good at that kind of stuff.>B. I was hoping you'd tell me.>C. Lost my memory, need you to help me find it.>D. Write in.
>>1522995>B. I was hoping you'd tell me.
>>1523052"I was hoping you'd tell me." You tell Tien bluntly, causing most of his students to trip over themselves at your rudeness. "Isn't that what martial artists do? They point you in the right direction?"Tien sighs, closing his two regular eyes as he rubs the bridge of his nose, his third eye still open and watching you. "I don't know what kind of anime you've been watching, but it doesn't really work like that. Unless you can tell me what your problem is I can't just magically give you an answer.""You can't?" You ask innocently, tilting your head to the side before frowning. "You're not just saying that so that you don't have to help me are you?""HOW DARE YOU!" One of the students cry out, pointing an accusing finger you. "Do not besmirch Master Tien's good name so offhandedly, he has done much to help the land around us recover from what it once was!""Bao, calm down." Tien chastises his student, who immediately bows in apology. Then he turns to you. "Although he's not wrong, you haven't exactly been polite with me since you showed up. You interrupted our meditation practice, and now you're accusing me of lying." He crosses his arms and his face becomes sterner. >A. Apologize for your rudeness and explain what you need help with.>B. Don't apologize but explain what you need help with.>C. Fight Tien and force him to help you.>D. Leave. This was a waste of time.>E. Write in.
>>1523152>B. Don't apologize but explain what you need help with.
>>1523163You huff, pouting a little before crossing your own arms and staring right back at Tien. "Jeez, I already told those guys at the gate what I needed too. Look, I can't remember anything past a year ago, not my name, my family, not even my birthday!" You say the last part with emphasis. "I came here hoping you'd have some answers for me."Tien's expression softens a bit, he brings his hand up to his chin as he begins to think. "Hmmm, that is unusual. You say you can't remember ANYTHING?""Nope." You reply. "I just woke up one morning out in the woods, didn't know how I got there, or who I was.""Hmmm, sounds a little like Goku. Maybe..." He's silent for a few moments, as if he's debating on whether or not what he's about to tell you is a good idea. "I have a friend, called Goku, he told me that when he was a child he suffered from memory loss as well, I doubt the two of you are linked in any way, but that's the best spot I can point you in if you want answers." "Go...ku." You sound the name out, liking the sound of it. "Alright! So where does he live? When can we go meet him?""We?" Tien asks. "I'm sorry, but I have a school to run, I can't go trekking across mountains just to drop you off at my friends house. I can tell you where he lives, but getting there is your job.">A. Tell him fine, you'll go by yourself.>B. Call him a terrible person for making a child travel alone, tell him you want him to come with you.>C. Ask him if he can just call this Goku guy and have him come here.D. Write in
>>1523582For a second you wonder if you heard Tien right, that if your big pointy ears are clogged up with dirt, but as you stare at the three eyed bald man, you realize he's being serious."Wh-what? Well can't you just call him or something? Have him show up here instead of making me travel all the over to his place?" "Goku...doesn't really have a phone." Tien replies slowly, like he was trying to come up with the nicest way possible of telling you something bad about his friend. "He lives out in the wilderness with his wife in East District.""East District?!" You shout again, sounding more and more like a whining child. Which, you are. "But that's at least a weeks travel by foot."Tien shrugs, trying to look sorry for your situation. "I'm sorry, but I just don't have the time to spare. This place didn't exactly have the best reputation not too long ago, and I'm lucky to have as many students as I do now."For a moment your silent, just staring down at your feet with your hands clenched at your sides. You honestly feel like you're going to cry. "...No." You choke out, looking up at Tien once more. "No, I'm not going by myself!""Kid, I-""Shut up!" You scream, pointing an accusing finger at Tien. "What kind of person makes a kid travel all alone by themselves? You're a big ol' jerk mister Tien!""Insolent child, don't speak to the Master that way!" A couple of the students look like they're going to move on you, but a raised hand from Tien makes them stop. "But Master, this chil-""I know, but I can't help how they feel." Tien looks at you. "I'm sorry, but the answers still no.""Isn't there any way I can get you come?!" You cry, sniffling your nose as you start to feel tears in your eyes.Whether it's because of how pitiful you look or because he just wants you out of here all the sooner, Tien gives a sigh and motions for one of his students to come forward. "Fine, if a simple no isn't going to do, then we'll do this the hard way." Tien steps down from the deck, standing between you and the student he had called forward. "You'll have to face one of my students in combat, win and I'll go with you. Lose, and consider it a lesson in getting stronger." You start to complain, but he holds his hand up to stop you. "I'm not expecting much, so I'll give a slight bit of leeway." Walking out into the courtyard, Tien drags his foot around in the sand, creating a large twelve foot round circle. "If you can push my student out of the circle, it'll count as your win. Do you accept?">A. Yes.>B. No, this is stupid and you're mean, just give me the directions.>C. I could take on three of your students no problem!>D. I wanna fight you!>E. Write in
>>1523609>A. YesWe're red with horns, we're obviously a Stan let's shoot lasers.
>>1523609>>A. Yes.Alright you got my interest, let's see how this goes.
>>1523622>>1523677ALRIGHT! Roll me a d50.
>>1524294My bad, been a while
Rolled 50 (1d50)>>1524298fucking thing
>>1524300I think we just killed a man.
Rolled 10 (1d50)>>1524300Are the other rolls needed?
>>1524411No, now stop and don't roll again.
>>1524300You grin as you nod your head enthusiastically. "Sure! If it means you'll come along with me to this mister Goku's guys house, I'll play your sumo game.""This is not a game!" Tien's student cries out. The tall bald man jumps over to the circle, flipping forward a few times before landing in a fighting pose. "You have insulted our Master too many times child, for that you must be taught a lesson! A couple of the other students cheer out in support, while Tien just looks like he'd like this whole thing to be over with. You walk into the circle yourself, taking a similar crouched stance as your opponent. "Is this right?" You ask innocently."Tuck you left foot in a little more." Tien instructs you.You do as he says, and find that your stance just feels...right. You grin over at your bald opponent. "Okay mister, I"m ready when you are.""You wish." He grunts, before darting forward. He's not really that hard to keep track of, especially with him just running to wards you like that. He starts giving out a couple shouts as he throws some punches and kicks at you, but they seem easy enough to dodge. In fact, aside from moving your head out of the way, you haven't really moved from your spot since the beginning. After a few more attempted strikes that just don't seem to connect at all, Tien's student grinds his teeth before flipping backwards. When he lands he has one of his hand out, one finger pointing to wards you. "NO DON'T!" Tien cries out, but it's too late as a bright beam of energy shoots from the students finger and is coming in fast right for you.You're smart enough to know that getting hit by that thing probably won't feel good, so for the first time this whole fight, you move.And boy do you move fast.First you dodge the Dodon Ray, ducking underneath it just barely, before zig-zagging to wards your opponent so fast that you're kicking up a dust cloud of sand. Before he has any chance of reacting, you grin happily before slamming your head directly into his gut, lifting his whole body off the ground and flying over the dojo walls.For a moment, nobody seems to say anything, most of the students too shocked by what had just happened. Tien for his part, seems less shocked and more intrigued, like he's actually looking at you for the first ti-CRASHWelp, guess that guy finally landed. You grin again as you turn to face Tien.>A. I win! That means you have to show me where Goku lives!>B. Again again! That was so much fun!>C. That was okay right? I know I knocked him out of the dojo, but he's still outside the circle.>D. Was that one of your weaker students? >E. Write in.(Sorry for the late reply guys, had work. Nice job on the 50 though.)
>>1526680>A. I win! That means you have to show me where Goku lives!
>>1526680>>C. That was okay right? I know I knocked him out of the dojo, but he's still outside the circle.
>>1526680>C. That was okay right? I know I knocked him out of the dojo, but he's still outside the circle.
>>1526828>>1526843"That was okay right?" You ask nervously, though you still can't help but grin. "I know I knocked him out of the dojo, but he's still outside the circle."Tien smiles softly at you before nodding his head. "Yes, the rule was you just had to knock him out of the circle, and you," He stops, listening to the groans of his student just outside the dojo walls for a moment. "...certainly did that." Tien turns to his students, their shocked expressions still on their faces. "Students, I'm going to be away for a while, so I'm leaving Chaouzu in charge while I'm gone." He pauses again before continuing. "And someone make sure Bao is okay, I doubt his ego was the only thing bruised there." His students give him a loud reply that they will, and soon he and you are exiting the dojo."That was quite impressive what you did back there." Tien compliments you, and you're thankful for your red skin or else he'd see you blushing. "Bao wasn't just an ordinary student, so defeating him AND dodging the Dodon Ray as well is worthy of praise.""Is that what that thing was?" You ask curiously. "I didn't know what it was, but I knew getting hit by it would probably be a bad thing."Tien gives you a curt nod, eyes facing forward as the two of you finally hit a dirt road. "You were right to worry, the Dodon Ray is the Crane School's signature technique. If that had hit you, it would've felt like a beam of sharp fire piercing your body. Though I doubt it would've actually pieced yours, from how strong you seem to be.""Wow." You say, eyes big and wide at everything Tien just said. Maybe a little too big, as Tien seems a bit creeped out by your childish stare.>A. Ask him to explain how Bao was able to use the Dodon Ray (This will give you a Ki explanation)>B. Ask Tien if he knows any jokes>C. Ask Tien what kind of person Goku is.>D. Ask Tien what he thought of the fight.>E. Write in(Oh, and I forgot to mention this, but multiple answers are allowed)
Also check it, just got some cool art of Saff from Yotomoe.
>>1526898>>A. Ask him to explain how Bao was able to use the Dodon Ray (This will give you a Ki explanation)>D. Ask Tien what he thought of the fight.>E. How strong are you? Compared to your student I mean.
>>1526910 Upvoting this
>>1526910>>1527067"Can you tell me how that Bao guy was able to do that? The Dodo Ray I mean.""Dodon Ray." Tien corrects you, and from the sound of his voice that probably isn't the first time he's had to correct someone on the pronunciation of the technique. "And...Okay, do you know anything about Ki Manipulation?" You shake your head. "Well, Ki is the life energy that every living thing has within them. Some people call it fighting potential, on account of it can help you in battle.""It can?" You ask. The dirt road has lead into a more mountainous area, there's actually a pretty sharp fall to your right.Tien nods. "Yes. By harnessing and mastering your Ki, you can do things like the Dodon Ray. You can also increase your strength, speed, and endurance as well. Mortal bodies have limits, but harnessing your Ki means you can surpass those limits, improving yourself over time.""Wow, so if I learn to harness my Ki, I can shoot energy beams out of my finger tips?" You say in amazement, looking down at your own fingers."That, and you can do other things. Create bright balls of light, fly, split yourself in two. Possibilities are endless Saff." Tien and you come across a rather large gap in the mountain, much to far for you to jump over. "Hmmm, well I guess now's as good a time as any. Here, climb up on my back." You don't really have to be told twice about that, as you quickly shuffle onto the tall bald mans back, and before you know it you're both floating up into the air, before flying off. "WHOA!" You cry out, a huge grin on your face as you look at the world around you from a new perspective. "This is AMAZING!" Tien smiles, going a bit higher and letting you get a better look at the surrounding valley. There's tall mountains, rivers, you can even spot a couple dinosaurs roaming about. For a while you're content to just take in the view, but after a while you start asking questions again. "So what did you think of the fight back at the dojo mister Tien?""It was...interesting." There he goes, choosing his words carefully again. "Though I'm impressed by your strength and speed, considering how young you are, you're lacking in actual technique and training. I take it you never actually learned how to fight before?""Nuh-uh, well at least I don't think so. Earlier was the first time I've ever had to fight someone.""I thought so. Though don't take my words to harshly, we all had to start somewhere.""So mister Tien, how strong are you then?" You ask, smiling as a flock of birds passes you by with startled looks on their faces. "Compared to your student I mean.""Hmmm, well let's put it this way. If you and I fought, I'd handle you as easily as you handled Bao.""Wow." You say again, amazed. "You're really that strong? You must be the strongest guy in the whole world!""Heh, not really. That'd be Goku. Speaking of which." He starts to descend down, and you're just now realizing how high up you were. >cont.
>>1527119Clutching the back of Tien's shirt, you can feel the wind whipping past your face as you descend faster and faster, before finally coming to a complete stop on the ground below. Tien seems to notice your shaken expression. "Sorry, forgot not everyone's used to flying.""No no! That was so cool! Can you teach me to fly some time?" You say enthusiastically, hoping down from Tien's back and onto the ground. "Maybe, but right now let's see if Goku's home.""Huh?" You look around, finally noticing the house just a few meters away. Even though it's dusk you can tell that this is a really good place. Just something about it makes you feel safe. "Oh wow look, smoke from the chimney, that means someone's home!">A. Rush forward and knock on the front door.>B. Peek in through the windows.>C. Shout to Goku that you're here.>D. Just follow mister Tien.>E. Write in.(Probably last one for tonight, tell me how you guys are liking or not liking it so far.)
>>1527128>D. Just follow mister Tien.I like it, though I just recently popped in.
>>1527128>>D. Just follow mister Tien.
>>1527133Also liking it so far.
>>1527128I'm liking it so far.Smooth start, I'm liking the MC's design, and I especially liking the fact that we're a kid outside of OG Dragonball. That's really rare nowadays.
>>1527145Since we're Kid Gohan age right after Dead Zone, doesn't this mean we'll always be a year or two ahead of Gohan's age? If so we should be hitting adulthood right after the androids come.
>>1527147Talking about our age relative to Gohan actually brings up a question.Are we even going to bother with an education?
>>1527131>>1527133>>1527144Goku's supposed to be mister Tien's friend, so it'd probably be a good idea to just let him do his thing. "I'm right behind you mister Tien." You say, sounding sure of yourself."...Right." Tien walks up to the front door the house, and you can hear...yelling? Sounds like a lady too, a really ANGRY lady. Tien hears this too and, if you weren't so sure of how cool he was, you'd swear he was debating on whether on not to knock. After a moment though he sighs, and gives a couple of knocks on the door.The yelling from the inside stops, though you do hear what sounds like the angry footsteps of a wildebeest getting closer. The doors pulled open, and a annoyed looking lady is standing there in the doorway, though her expression softens a bit when she notices it's Tien. "Oh Tien, what are doing here so late?" Her expression hardens again. "If you're looking for Goku, tough luck. He's in trouble for knocking another hole in our house.""But Chi-Chi," A voice whines from inside. "I was just training.""Don't you "I was just training" me Goku!" Chi-Chi shouts back inside. You gulp, if this lady can boss around Goku, then SHE must be the strongest person in the world."M-mom." A small voice gets yours, and everyone else attention. Standing right beside Chi-Chi is a boy just about your age from the looks of things, clutching his funny looking hat tightly against his head. "It-it's one of those people who kidnapped me before."Chi-Chi, for the first time, looks at you finally and frowns. She pushes Gohan back a bit, and she looks like she's ready to throw down too. "And who are you?">A. I'm Saff!>B. (to Gohan) You got a weird hat>C. I don't know, I lost my memory.>D. Can I talk to Goku now?>E. How come you like to shout so much lady?>F. Write in>>1527145>>1527147>>1527135Thanks guys, appreciate the kind words. Also your character's six, six-and-a-half. Forgot what Gohan was around that time but I figure it's close enough.
>>1527149Well as far as we know we don't have living parents, so unless someone like Tien or Goku sponsored it we couldn't have one.
>>1527151>D Can I talk to Goku now?>B. (To Gohan) You got a weird hatRIP we might've helped kidnap the adorable useless kid.
>>1527151>A. I'm Saff!>C. I don't know, I lost my memory.I'd joke with Gohan, but I'd rather not alarm the strongest person in the world right now.Also Gohan is about 4 right now, so you're mostly right.
>>1527152Anything's possible really. ANYTHING.>>1527157>Strongest person in the world>Not Monster Carrot
>>1527161>Monster CarrotIsn't he drifting in space since Roshi destroyed the moon a few years ago?
>>1527163Huh, that's right he was on the moon wasn't he.Hope you guys don't run into him on your way to Namek.
>>1527164But isn't the moon still here until Piccolo destroys it to stop Kid Gohan?
>>1527166It got wished back in between Roshi destroying it and Piccolo Junior destroying it.
>>1527167>>1527166Poor moon. Also gonna' call it a night unless we get a third guy within' the next ten minutes. We'll pick this up tomorrow. Also tell me how you guys are on the whole Is Saff a girl/boy thing.Here's the twitter for keeping up with updates.https://twitter.com/QM_Brush
>>1527181I'd like to say make Saff a girl, but I'm fine with either. It's whatever; y'know?
>>1527181My preferences lean towards having a male player character, but I'm fine with whatever.Anyways, going good so far and I hope you stick with it.
>>1527184>>1527186Great thing about Dragon Ball is that it's got of a LOT of sub material that you can use to get yourself out of a rut. That, and I don't really consider myself a good QM if I can't make up shit on the fly.
>>1527187Half the fun of running in an established universe is changing shit up.You do what you need bruh.
So I'm just gonna go out on a limb and say Saff is an estranged demon.If that's the case, Piccolo might take us under his wing and teach us some cool demon themed moves.
>>1527181I'd rather a Male character honestly.
Hey Brushwood.I threw something together you could use as an OP image or something
>>1527151>A. I'm Saff! >F. I like your hat! >>1527273Yooooo, that's cool dude.
>>1527151>>A. I'm Saff!>>C. I don't know, I lost my memory.>>1527155>>1527279Guys, don't mention the hat, going to scare kid gohan, we were already dicks with tien at least he seems to be changing his view of us.
>>1527382>going to scare kid gohan,>tfw literally everything scares son ghoan
>>1527493He's a sheltered hill billy who's being raised like he's chinese royalty. Give him a break.
>>1527382>>1527157"I'm Saff!" You say enthusiastically, boy it feels good to have so many people interested in you. "I lost my memory." Chi-Chi has the decency to look confused at that last statement. "Then...how do you know your name?""I don't," You answer, grinning at Gohan before continuing. "It's just what people call me cause of my red skin." You catch movement over by one of the windows and can see a spiky haired man peeking out from behind one of them, his eyes looking directly at you. "Hello!" You wave, earning a grin from Goku as he waves back.Chi-Chi sighs before looking back to Tien. "Tien, why did you bring this...child here?""Well," Tien starts, looking down to wards you for a moment before focusing back on Chi-Chi. "Saff told me they had lost their memory, and I remembered Goku telling me he had problems like that when he was younger, so I thought maybe Goku had some answers.""Oh man you lost your memory huh?" Everyone jumps back a bit when Goku's suddenly outside, peering down at you with a smile. "Same thing used to happen to me all the time. Did you fall down a cliff and hit your head?""I don't know." You reply happily."Did you have a stay up too late and look up at the moon?""I don't know.""Did you-""GOKU!" Chi-Chi shouts, causing the grown man to flinch as his wife grabs him by the ear. "If the kid doesn't remember anything how's he supposed to answer those questions?!""Ow ow ow. Sorry Chi-Chi, I just thought I'd try." This Goku person seems really nice, but man is he a real pushover for this Chi-Chi lady. "So," Goku stares at you again. "You can't remember a thing then.""Nothing past a year ago, no." You reply."Well, I don't think I can really help you out here Saff, I mean the only times I've had trouble with my memory were when I was younger and looked at the moon, and I haven't done that in ages."You frown, looking down at the ground as you feel your hopes deflate. You were hoping you'd find some answers here. "Darn.""Alright," Chi-Chi starts up, looking more irritated by the second. "It's getting late and Gohan doesn't need to stay up past his bed time. So we can all talk about this in the morning.""Aww c'mon Chi-Chi, it's not that late." Goku complains. Then he smiles. "Hey, what if they stayed over for the night, then they could ask all the questions they wanted!?""Absolutely not!" Chi-Chi responds before you even get a chance to say yes. "We may know Tien, but we barely know this child. What if they are part of the group that kidnapped Gohan a while back?">A. I wanna' stay the night!>B. It's fine, I'll just go back with mister Tien>C. It's fine, I can just sleep in the woods.>D. Who kidnapped Gohan?>E. I'm not with any group, I don't think.>F. Write in.
>>1527273I'm in lvoe with this man, great job.
>>1527627>E. I'm not with any group, I don't think.>C. It's fine, I can just sleep in the woods.
>>1527630Just doing my bit.
>>1527627>>C. It's fine, I can just sleep in the woods.
>>1527627>C. It's fine, I can just sleep in the woodsLittle red devil inna woods
>>1527638>>1527667>>1527704"I'm not part of any group, at least, I don't think I am." It's pretty hard trying to tell people you're a good kid when you don't even know if that's completely true yourself. Still, if you can't spend the night with Goku and his family, and the trek back from Tien's dojo would take too long, there's really only one option left. "But that's fine, I'll just sleep in the woods.""The woods?!" Chi-Chi looks like she's going to have a heart attack. "B-but you're just a little kid.""It's okay, I've done it plenty of times." You reassure her as you start off into the woods. You can hear Goku say something and Chi-Chi is yelling at him again, but before long their voices are too hard to hear as you're so deep in the woods. You can hear some rustling in the trees above, and looking up you see that mister Tien had followed you. "Hey mister Tien! Did you wanna' spend the night in the woods too?"He smiles gently at you. "No, I have to get back to my dojo, I just wanted to ask if you wanted to stay there instead of out here in the wilderness.""No I'm fine. Like I said, I've done this plenty of times." You saw as you start gathering some materials to make a comfy bed of leaves. "Some times the farmers or people I'd meet out on the road didn't like my red skin, so I'd get to sleep out in the barn with the cows or in the woods. It was really fun!"Tien's face turns into a frown for a second, and you wonder what you said that would make him so angry. He floats down to the ground in front of you, sitting down with his legs crossed. "Hmmm, well if you're sure, then the least I can do is show you how to harness your ki.""REALLY!?" You shout excitedly, bouncing from foot to foot. Tien nods, and you quickly take up a position right in front of him, crossing your legs just like he does. "No, the most important thing to remember is that everything, and everyone, has Ki. The point of this is that we're trying to get you to harness YOU'RE Ki, or at least know what it feels like. Now, take a deep breath, and focus."You take a deep breath.>Roll me a d50
Rolled 48 (1d50)>>1527763>>Roll me a d50sure thing boss
Rolled 24 (1d50)>>1527763Hoo boy!
>>1527772Impressive.It'll be about ten hours till I can post again guys, got work to get to. When I get back we'll see exactly what kind of Ki you have.
>>1527777I got work in about an hour anyways, so see you then man.
>>1527777Does it taste red?
Rolled 6 (1d50)>>1527775>>1527772>>1527763Rollan for our third roll
>>1529339Good hustle. Take some Robitussin and hit the bench.
>>1527772It takes a few moments, because at first all you can hear is the sounds of the forest animals, but as you begin to focus harder and harder, you realize that you can't just hear them, you can SENSE them. A colony of ants just to your left, each one barely the size of your pinkie nail, but they all carry a force of Ki that makes them seem so much stronger. There's a family of birds nesting just above you, the momma and poppa looking after their tiny young hatchlings. You can sense three of them, and with slow dread you can tell that the third one is dying. Even now its ki is fading.Before you can dwell too long on that, you finally take notice of mister Tien's ki, and boy does it feel big. The best way you could describe it would be like a whirlpool, it's calm in a way but also very dangerous. Sensing even farther, you take notice of the three ki's inside mister Goku's house. You sense one ki that seems firey and comforting at the same time, you guess that must be miss Chi-Chi's, then there's another that feels playful, but also heavy. You guess that must be Goku's. The third ki hits you like a ton of bricks. It's...wow. You thought mister Tien's was powerful, but this one feels like it could dwarf mister Tien's with no trouble at all, and what's more you feel like this is only the tip of an iceberg."Gah!" You gasp for breath, falling out of your concentration as you apparently forgot to breathe. "That, that was intense!" You cry out in surprise.Tien smiles at you, happy to see that you've taken to it so easily. "Good, now you're one step closer to figuring out how we're able to do things like the Dodon Ray and fly.""Awesome! Oh, hey mister Tien, I could sense yours and Goku's family's ki's, can you sense mine too? What's it feel like?"Tien closes his eyes and focuses on you, his face twisting in confusion for a second before his eyes open up. "Hmmm.""Hmmm?" You reply back, wondering what he saw."Your ki was...like cooking oil." He sees the confused expression on your face and continues. "It was clear, just like your intentions usually are, and it feels like you leave a shining gleam on everything it touches." He frowns for a second. "But it also feels like it could ignite at any moment, or with the right push." Tien stands, floating up into the air. "Have a good nights rest Saff, I hope you get your memories back." And with that he's gone.Falling back onto the pile of leaves you'd gathered up, you can't help but grin at the kind of day you've had. "Wow.">A. Dream>B. Just cut to next morning.
>>1529559>>A. DreamSaff's subconscious needs to process all this new info.
>>1527128>(Probably last one for tonight, tell me how you guys are liking or not liking it so far.)Great! I like your writing style. Hope you stick withit!
>>1529590>>1529643>>1529721>>1529731You feel your eyelids becoming heavier and heavier as time goes on, and before long you find yourself drifting off into slumberland, where all your dreams come true.And your nightmares become reality.===You stare at your surroundings, there's fire everywhere, the ground beneath your bare feet feels sharp and jagged, like you're standing on obsidian. You hear the voices, but you can't see their faces."And the child? Do you think he's prepared for what's required of him?" Dark, deep, commanding. "I know she is, it's what we made her for." Light, soft, welcoming.""But he lacks experience, he doesn't know what the world out there is truly like." Dark, deep, commanding. Warm and heavy."She may lack experience, but her thirst for knowledge will make up for it. She will ask questions, she will seek answers." Light, soft, welcoming. Cool and weightless."Hmmm. Then we will test him, see if he can do what we have failed at." Father."She will succeed, she will be triumphant. She will be our savior." Mother.===You wake up with a start, your whole body coated in sweat and your breathing so heavy that it fills the forest with your sounds of rasped breath. "Who...who were they?"You hear a small cracking noise, like a tree branch being broken, and you whip your head behind you to see what caused it, but you don't spot anything. You perk your ears up, but even then you can't hear anyone.>A. Sense for them.>B. "Who's there?">C. Oh well, must've been your imagination. Better go take a bath.>D. Shrug, better go see if Goku is up.>E. Write in.
>>1529836>>A. Sense for them.No reason not to try
>>1529836>A. Sense for them.Seems like a good idea since we just learned we could do that, and doing that is the quickest way to do that laser thing the guy we threw did.

>>1529891At least we aren't in combat or anything.
>>1529895True, but that might mean we about to get Jumped
>>1529900Watch us beat the shit out of whatever it is then.
>>1529858You close your eyes and focus, just like you did last night with mister Tien. Whether it's because of the bad dream you had or this person is trying to purposely hide from you, you're having a hard time figuring out where they are. You can tell that someone's close by, but that's like saying there's a spider near you. Spiders are EVERYWHERE."Hmmmm." You tap your chin as you try to think of the best way to approach this situation. And then you just decide to start looking behind trees. "Are you...HERE?!" You do this tree after tree, each time you think you've caught the person spying on you, but all you're left with is nothing. "Hmph." You pout, you really thought you'd be able to sense who it was, and now that you haven't found them you're irritated. You don't like being irritated. >A. Try to sense for them again.>B. Go and find Goku>C. Write-in.
>>1529908>B. Go and find Goku
>>1529908>>B. Go and find GokuMight as well tell him somebody is lurking around his house.
>>1529908>B. Go and find GokuTell him about it.
>>1529908>>B. Go and find GokuWe need an adult
>>1529914>>1529915>>1529916"Okay mister peeper, I don't really know where you are so I'm just gonna' go find mister Goku. Sorry you like hiding from people."You put yourself back in a good mood as you trot your way back to Goku's home, and your smile gets even wider as you can smell the delicious, tantalizing, oh so succulent smell of maple syrup. "Mmmmmm, pancakes." You say to yourself, mouth watering at just the thought of those fluffy round discs. Your step picks up as you get to the front door, knocking rapidly in excitement. The door opens and there's Chi-Chi, in an apron stirring something in a bowl. She frowns slightly as he realizes it's you. "Oh, hello Saff." She says curtly, still mixing whatever int the bowl."Pancakes." You say happily, grinning up at her. "...sigh. Would you like to come in for some breakfast Saff?" You thought she'd never ask.You quickly hurry past her and into the house, mouth wide open as you look around at all the interesting things. Like that chair, or that fireplace, or that other chair! "Wow miss Chi-Chi, you're home's pretty!"She seems to like the compliment, developing a small smile. "Well thank you Saff, it's nice that someone around here notices. Speaking of which, GOKU!" You're sure you've gone deaf, with how bad your ears are ringing."I'm up I'm up!" Goku calls, quickly running out of the bedroom, just clad in his underwear. "Boy Chi-Chi that smells gre-Oh hey Saff!" He waves at you and you wave back, both of you grinning. "Came here for some pancakes huh?">A. Yup!>B. I was hoping you had some ideas about how to get my memory back.>C. Where's Gohan?>D. I CAN SENSE KI!>E. Write in
>>1529951>>A. Yup!>D. I CAN SENSE KI!>E. Also there's a thing in the woods. It was being sneaky.
>>1529957Changing to add E to my vote as well; makes sense to tell the STRONGESTGUY that there's somethin sneaking about
>>1529957>>1529976Five more minutes then I'll start writing.How you guys liking the thread tonight?
>>1529981Great as always, Brush
>>1529981It's bretty gud. You're pretty god at writing the characters so far and I'm especially liking our interactions with Goku.
>>1529992>You're pretty god*You're pretty good
>>1529981bretty ebin desu imo famalam
>>1522021>Aw come one, I actually like SOM.DROPPEDROPPED
>>1529957>>1529976"Yup!" You answer happily, earning a groan from Chi-Chi and a laugh from Goku. "Well, come on then and take a seat. We usually only have Ox King show up so the fourth chair's a little...big." You can see what Goku means, as you climb up into the chair it feels like it could fit three or four of you. YOU LIKE IT! Goku takes a seat opposite you, still looking at you with the same interest as yesterday. "So, how was your night in the woods last night, did ya' catch any snakes or spiders?""I can sense Ki!" You shout again, throwing your hands up in excitement. "Mister Tien showed me how to do it before he went back to his dojo last night."Goku's grin just gets bigger. "Wow, that's amazing Saff, I didn't even know what Ki was when I was your age. So how far can you sense?""I could sense you, miss Chi-Chi, and Gohan last night all the way from where I was sleeping." Your mouth waters as Chi-Chi sets down a huge, heaping plate of pancakes, so big that they actually obscure Goku from your view. "Oh yeah, and something weird happened this morning.""Mmmph, yeah what?" Goku asks through a mouth full of pancakes.You grab yourself a few stacks yourself, making sure to cover them in a healthy dose of syrup. "There was somebody spying on me this morning, but I couldn't tell who it was."Goku's eyes widen a little, before he looks over in the direction that your camp would've been. He stays for a few seconds before shrugging. "Huh, I don't sense anything there now."Before you have a chance to respond Gohan walks into the kitchen, lookin' a little dirty with some leaves in his hair. "Good mornin-" He stops when he sees you, smiling down at him from your big chair with your BIG stack of pancakes.>A. PANCAKES GOHAN! PANCAKES!>B. Morning.>C. Why do you look like you spent a night in the woods, I'M the one who spent the night in the woods.D. Write-In
>>1530024>A. PANCAKES GOHAN! PANCAKES!
>>1530037Yes. Dear God yes this.
>>1530024>>A. PANCAKES GOHAN! PANCAKES!the only response
>>1530033>>1530037>>1530039"GOHAN! PANCAKES!" You grin, wagging a bit of flapjack that's on your fork at the younger boy before engulfing the whole thing into your mouth. You chew it just out of habit, before it lands happily into your tummy. "Ahhh, pancakes.""Mom, dad, what's going on?" Gohan scampers over to his mom, hugging up close against her while still keeping his eyes on you."Well, Saff showed up this morning, and I didn't want to be rude to the boy...girl...child." Chi-Chi looks you over again, face scrunching up like she can't quite figure you out. "Saff, don't take this the wrong way, but are you a girl or a boy?""I don't know." You reply innocently, shoving another circular disc of pure perfection into your mouth. "Waf' da' diffawance?" You say through a mouth full of pancake.Chi-Chi blushes a bit before answering. "Well boys have....uh, certain things that girls don't." Boy does she look embarrassed."Boys have things that girls don't." You repeat, trying to think of what she means. You look over at Gohan again, finally noticing the long brown tail of his. "OH! You mean like tails?""No, well I mean yes in a way, but no. UGH." Chi-Chi stands up and heads over to the bookshelf, Gohan still clinging to her, before she brings over a big book and plops it down in front of you, thankfully ignoring the pancakes. She opens it up to a page. "These here-""WHY DON'T THEY HAVE SKIN!?" You shriek in horror, looking at what you can only assume are murder pictures of death. "Are they okay?!""They're fine Saff!" Chi-Chi grunts, trying to control her temper. "They're just pictures. Now, right here," She points to the drawings no-no places. "Which one of these...looks like what you have?">Okay guys, here we go.>A. Girl>B. Boy
>>1530079>>A. GirlLET'S MIX IT UP
>>1530079>A. Girl.Rock the boat
Five more minutes, but I'm honestly surprised by how this is going.
>>1530101Rock the boat man
>>1530084>>1530096>>1530097You look at the horrifying pictures again, before pointing to wards the female figure. "Well, it doesn't look EXACTLY like that, but I think I got whatever she has."Chi-Chi lets out a breath of relief. "Oh, good. Now that that's settl-""So what's that big thing right there?" You ask, pointing to the man's junk. You lean in closely to read the word beside it. "Pee-ness. Penis. What's a penis miss Chi-Chi!?" You can see Gohan leaning in to get a look, but Chi-Chi swipes the book up into the air before he can see it."Gohan no, you're not old enough yet." "But mom," he whines a bit, reaching up for the book. "I wanna' know what a penis is too."You look over at Goku who looks like he's doubled over and choking on some pancakes from how much he's shaking. Oh well. You stand up on the chair and reach for the book too, a big smile on your face. "Yeah c'mon miss Chi-Chi, show us the penis!""Show us the penis, show us the penis!" Both you and Gohan shout in unison, running around Chi-Chi like it's a game."ENOUGH!" She shouts, causing you, Gohan, and Goku to get sent flying across to the other side of the room from how powerful her voice is. "Just...just go out and get firewood or something, we're NOT talking about this anymore." She slams the book shut before placing it at the very top of the bookshelf, an impossible to reach space for someone so short as yourself."Awww," You pout, looking over at Gohan and smiling, and this time getting a smile right back. Then you gasp! "Gohan! You know what this means!""What?" He asks, genuinely curious.You smile, rubbing your hands against your cheeks as you do. "I'm a laayyyyyydeee!">A. Ask Goku if he knows anyway of getting your memory back.>B. See if Gohan wants to go play.>C. Well, Chi-Chi did say to go chop firewood.>D. Write-in
>>1530134>C. Well, Chi-Chi did say to go chop firewood.>D. Why do you look so messy Gohan? Did you sleep out in the woods too?
>>1530134>C. Well, Chi-Chi did say to go chop firewood.Hooo boy,this is great.
Writing in five, then I'm calling it a night. We'll try to pick it up at like eleven. It's 1:30 right now for me.
>>1530160Cool. I got work in about...8 hours. So I'm probably gonna miss that.Whatever the case, I'm having fun and this is going along pretty good.
>>1530139>>1530140>>1530153You giggle to yourself as Gohan looks confused and then giggles right along side with you. After a few seconds of rolling around on the floor just laughing, you hop up and feel rejuvenated. So you're a girl, that's awesome. You don't really know what that means, but anything you learn about yourself just HAS to be good news. "Hey mister Goku," You get his attention as he's picking up a couch and rearranging it from Chi-Chi's screech. "Miss Chi-Chi said there was fire wood to chop or something right? Can we go do that?!"Goku grins happily. "Sure! I always like getting in some exercise in the morning, and I'm anxious to see how much you can actually chop!" He turns to Gohan. "Gohan, you wanna' come with daddy and Saff?" The boy looks like he's thinking about it, then nods his head.As the three of you head out to the woods, you can't help but notice that Gohan looks a little messy. "Gohan, why DO you look so messy? Did ya' sleep out in the woods too?"The boy looks embarrassed looking down at his feet for a bit. "I'unno." He mumbles.Hmmm, strange. "Well whatever, I'm gonna' chop way more firewood then you!""Ha, that sounds like a challenge Saff!" Goku says cheerfully as the three of you come into a clearing. There's an old axe already buried into a perfectly sliced tree trunk, but mister Goku just ignores that and walks right up to a tree. He takes up a stance, then his fist shoots out. There's a loud cracking noise, and before you know it the tree's falling over, crashing to the forest floor. "Well that's one, Saff do you wanna' get the next one or would you like me to?">A. You'll get it(use the axe)>B. You'll get it(use your hand like mister Goku)>C. You can get it.>D. HOW'D YOU DO THAT WHOA WOW!!!>E. Write in.
>>1530191>B. You'll get it(use your hand like mister Goku)
>>1530191>B. You'll get it(use your hand like mister Goku)Hopefully we don't botch this and end up with a fractured hand.
>>1530200If that happens, that's our second lesson. It's called learning.

>>1530222Still got two chance->>1530226There you go.
Okay. I figured out our first skill.Punching shit.Like really hard.
>>1530226Fuck yeah, the dice liked me for once.
>>1530226"I got it mister Goku!" You say, walking up to a tree more or less the same size as the one that Goku managed to knock down. You look it over, taking a stance like you did when you fought the Crane student. "HAH!" You shout, striking out with your fist and connecting with a sickening crack. At first you think you've broken your hand, but then the cracking noise gets louder and louder, and small cracks start appearing all over the tree. Then with a loud crack similar to that of thunder, the whole back of the tree explodes, a shower of splinters raining down on the forest before it tips over. "...Wow." Is all you can say, looking down at your handiwork and then at your hand itself. You're tree looks like a complete mess compared to mister Goku's. "Mister Goku," You start, turning to wards him with a little worry in your voice. "Did I do something wrong?"Goku rubs his chin as he looks over your work, then at your hand itself. "Hmmm, if I had to guess I'd say you don't know how to control your strength Saff." He takes your hand, forming it into a fist that he covers with his own hand. "Having power is good, but if you don't know how to control that power it lead to people getting hurt." "...Can you show me how to control it mister Goku?" You ask, still staring down at his hand, which seems so much larger than yours.He smiles. "Sure Saff, I'd be happy to. Now let's get these trees chopped up, then we'll figure out how to get your memory back!""YEAH!" You shout, and you're probably the happiest you've been in a long time.>End for nowWell that's it for now guys, probably start up again tomorrow, until then tell me what you thought, how you felt, and any criticisms you had. Peace.
>>1530254Thanks for running man. I'm liking the quest so far.I can see some of the stuff you're setting up and I like where it's going.I couldn't really see any glaring problems with anything you're doing, so I don't really have any major criticisms.Just make sure you know how to avoid the common pitfalls of quests like these, or just quests in general.
>>1530267No waitfu's?Well alright then.
>>1530269You can have romance and shit like that.Also make sure you know when and how to keep the story on track.You should also know what to veto. Like severely dumb shit.And more importantly then all that, make sure we aren't a Mary Sue/Kaguya.
>>1530254Great session,Saff's character is what sells me this quest so far,is very different from the others but still conects very well. I will be looking forward how this goes.
>>1530281>>1530288I was honestly surprised nobody complained about there being no combat outside of that one little bitty fight, but then I tried to keep there plenty of dice rolls for you guys. Also don't worry, you'll only end up a mary sue if you keep rolling nothing but 20's, 50's, and 100's.Also who else was stoked tonight when Tofoo got that nat 100 on Cooler?
>>1530311I was more stoked we got the tail because of that. Shit was hype and we got a trophy, if not a delicious snack.
>>1530311It was great,but kinda dissapointing that it ended so soon.But hey, Tofoo is not a jobber anymore,at least for now.
>>1530316Tofoo has his ups and downs.He's only human after all.
This reminds me of the other Dragonball quest. The one with the blue dragonballs
>>1530627The one where you were fighting pirates with a female majin and the PC's master was a Namekian?
>>1530633Yeah! That's the one
We're back in business ya'll!
"There, that ought to be enough firewood for a while." Goku says as he stares the two(nearly) perfect bunch of trees. You and he had to carry them all the way from the forest back to his house. Well, HE had to carry his, you ended up having to push yours and leaving a very clear dent in the ground leading from the forest to mister Goku's house. No matter how strong you are, you're still mortal enemies with leverage and height. For now."That was fun mister Goku." You tell him, climbing up on top of your own log and taking a small break. Gohan tries to scramble up with you, but the little boy seems to be having some trouble. You reach out with your hand and are happily surprised when he accepts it. It feels like it's been a long time since someone didn't just reel back from you, these last few days have been really good."So Saff," Goku starts, getting your attention again. "I was thinking about some people who might be able to help you out with that memory issue of yours.""Yeah?!" You ask excitedly, bouncing up and down on the log."Yeah. First person to come to my mind was Bulma, she's probably the smartest person in the whole world, so maybe she's got some machine that could bring your memory back!""Then there's Kami, he pretty much watches over the whole Earth, and he's really old too, so maybe he saw what happened to you a year ago.""And then there's Fortunteller Baba, she could actually look into the past and see what happened."You and Gohan both go "Wow" at all the stuff Goku just told you. So many options, it makes your head spin!>A. I wanna' go to "SPECIFY">B. Tell me more about Bulma>C. Tell me more about Kami>D. Tell me more about Baba.>E. Can Gohan come with us?>F. Write-in.
>>1531899Hmmm,what could we choose...I think kami is our best option here,voting for>C
>>1531899>>C. Tell me more about Kami
>>1531953>>1531956"Kami sounded pretty interesting." You say, after giving it some thought. Anybody who watches over the whole Earth has to know something about what happened to you. "Can you tell me more about him?""Sure!" Goku says enthusiastically. He takes a seat on the tree beside you and Gohan. "I met Kami a long time ago, back when I was as short as you guys!""WHOA!" You and Gohan shout again, trying to imagine mister Goku ever being so small. You wonder how big you'll get when you get older?Goku grins at your reactions. "Hehe, yeah. Anyways I met Kami right after a really big threat had just showed up, his name was King Piccolo, and at the time he was the strongest enemy I'd ever fought." Goku pauses for a second, looking down at the ground in tranquil fury. "He's also the reason one of my friends got hurt. I don't think I've ever hated a person more than King Piccolo up to that point.""I'm sorry about your friend mister Goku." You say as you place a hand on his shoulder. You've never had a friend to get hurt before, but you can't imagine it feels good."It's okay Saff, Krillin got better." Goku smiles as he continues. "So anyways I went up above Korin's tower to meet with Kame, and it was areal surprise when I did. Turns out he looked just like King Piccolo." You both stare at Goku with your mouths agape. "Yeah, that's about what I felt like too. Turns out Kami was the good side to Piccolo's bad side though. He helped me learn some things about myself, and I even trained with his friend mister Popo. After all of that, I was just strong enough to defeat King Piccolo.""Wow, Kami sounds like a really interesting person!" You respond, standing up on the log with your fists clenched in excitement."Yeah, he's definetly been one of the better people I've met over the years. So do you wanna' go to Kami's then Saff?">A. Go to Kami's >B. Ask about the other options (Specify)>C. Ask if Gohan can come with>D. Write in.
>>1532046>A. Go to Kami's
Probably should've timed this better than when SOM started up his quest.
Five more minutes then writing.
>>1532046>C. Ask if Gohan can come with>A. Go to Kami's
>>1532054"Yeah let's go!" You hop off of the log and start running into the forest. Or at least you try to if mister Goku wasn't holding you back by the scruff of your shirt. "Huh?""Kami's a bit of a ways away to go by foot, I've got a much faster way we can go." Goku looks up int the sky and gives a sharp whistle. "HEY NIMBUS!" For a second you wonder who Nimbus is, then you notice something. Coming down at an incredible speed from the clouds is...another cloud! This one looks golden too! It leaves behind it a long trail as it zips around Goku's house a few times before stopping right beside him. You swear you heard tire screeches too for some reason. "Wow," You say as you move forward and touch the cloud, smiling as you marvel at how fluffy it feels. "Is this how you get around mister Goku?" Gohan's right beside you in touching the cloud, a smile just as big as yours on his face."Yup, when I've got somewhere really far away I need to get to. Nimbus here has been with me since I was a kid. He only lets those with pure hearts ride on him." To demonstrate, Goku hops up on top of the cloud and instead of falling through he stands firmly. "Go ahead Saff, give it a try."You ready yourself as you jump up into the air just like mister Goku, landing on to Nimbus with your tooshie. At first you start to sink a little, like how a mattress gives way to a body, but thankfully you don't fall through. "Alright! Hey Gohan come on and join us!""I don't know Saff," Goku sounds a bit nervous as he looks down at his son. "Chi-Chi might not want him missing out on his studies." You have a feeling that mister Goku is less worried about his son's studies and more about how angry his wife will be."Please mister Goku, I'm sure Gohan wants to come too right?"Gohan looks up at his dad and you and nods. "Yeah, I wanna' come too. Please."Goku grins and rubs the back of his head. "Well alright then, can't really say no to you two can I!" Gohan quickly climbs on board, he seems to have no trouble staying in place like you did, and then mister Goku shouts some commands and Nimbus takes off!And boy does he take off FAST! You thought that mister Tien's flying was something else, but this is crazy! You see the countryside zip by below you, at one point you even pass over a city, then the ocean! Beside you Gohan is shaking a bit from how fast Nimbus is going, but he's holding on. After a couple minutes you come across a large and long pillar that just seems to stretch up into the sky forever. Below it looks like a camp of some sorts, but you don't have time to look before Nimbus is climbing up through the clouds. You climb higher and higher, eventually passing by what you think is the top of the tower, and for a second you swore you saw a cat looking back at you.After another minute of climbing up on Nimbus, the three of you finally make it. You're looking down at Kami's Lookout.And for some reason, it looks familiar to you.>Cont
>>1532236The three of you circle Kami's lookout a couple times before Nimbus lands safely. Gohan is the first to hop off, lying flat on the ground like it was sweeter than candy. But that's insane, nothing's sweeter than candy. You and mister Goku hop down right after, though you feel a little dizzy and nearly fall over yourself. "That was a wild ride mister Goku!"He smiles back at you. "Yeah, riding Nimbus never really gets old for me. Come on, let's see if-""Hello Goku." A voice calls out, and you all turn to see a man with pitch black skin watering some flowers. "Nice to see you again, who are your friends?" Goku smiles at the man. "Hey Mr. Popo, well this right here is Gohan, he's my son." Goku prods Gohan forward a bit, but the little boy just hides behind his fathers leg, staring at Popo.Popo for his part, looks surprised to hear that Goku has a son. "Oh my, well congratulations. And who's this little one beside you?" He looks at you intently, you're pretty sure he's taking in your red skin and horns."I'm Saff!" You reply proudly. "I lost my memory! And I'm a girl!" "That's nice." Popo replies, moving on to some more flowers to water. Well shoot, you thought he'd have more questions about you. "Anyways Mr. Popo, Saff's memory loss is kind of the reason we're here. I was hoping Kami might have some idea since he's guardian of the Earth and everything.""Hmmm." Mr. Popo nods his head, still watering the flowers. "He might be able to help. He's resting right now in his room if you need to go see him."Goku turns to you with a grin. "Hear that Saff, he's in his room. Just go up those stairs over there and you can't miss him.""You're not coming with me mister Goku?" You ask.His grin turns a little sheepish. "Well, it's been a while since I saw Mr. Popo, and I was kind of hoping he'd spar with me." He turns to Popo. "Is that fine with you Popo?""It's fine with me, though I should warn you I haven't been slacking any since the last time." Popo says.Goku takes up a stance while Gohan runs over behind one of the palm trees.>A. Go see Kami.>B. You wanna' spar with Popo too!>C. Ask Gohan if he wants to go see Kami with you.>D. Write in.
>>1532287>C. Ask Gohan if he wants to go see Kami with you.
>>1532305>>1532324>>1532333"Hey Gohan," You say, moving over to the cowering boy as his dad and Popo start to jump around at crazy fast speeds. "You wanna' come see Kami with me?"Gohan looks nervous about meeting the guardian of Earth, but then he looks at his dad and Popo fighting and gulps, nodding his head. "Y-yeah, I think that's the safer option."You grin, grabbing Gohan by the hand and pulling him along with you. You reach the stairs like Goku told you and start climbing them, Gohan right behind you. "So what do you think this mister Kami guy's like Gohan?""I'm not sure," Gohan responds, sucking on one of his fingers as he tries to think. "My dad said he's the guardian of Earth right? Doesn't that mean you'd have to be a really nice person to be that?""Or maybe he's really big and strong," You grin, pretending to stomp around a bit. "And he's the guardian because nobody else wants to mess with him!"That seems to only make Gohan more nervous, but your grip on him is too good for the boy to run away, and the only other option is the fight going on between his dad and Popo.After a while the two of you finally reach the top of the stairs, and you're greeted with a dark room that's hard to see in. "Huh, you think he has a light switch in here Gohan?" You ask as you try to see in the dark."I-I don't think you can get electricity this high up Saff." He replies, sticking close to you.The two of you walk a little further into the room, finally noticing a weird looking chair in the middle of it. And a wrinkly green man sitting in it. He has a really big head, you notice, and a pair of antennae too. Plus he's GREEN! He also seems to be sleeping, his eyes closed and his head bowed forward, though his hand still clutches a staff firmly. "Psst, hey Gohan," You point forward, and he finally notices the sleeping figure, clutching your hand even tighter. "I think that's Kami.""W-we should leave, he's asleep and I don't wanna' make him angry by waking him up." Gohan whispers.Well, you COULD do that.>A. "HEY ARE YOU KAMI?!">B. Walk up and poke Kami>C. Just sit down and wait for him to wake up.>D. Gohan's right, you should probably leave.>E. Write in.
>>1532397>A. "HEY ARE YOU KAMI?!"
>>1532397>E. Just walk up to the green man sitting in the chair and ask if he's Kami.
>>1532397>B. Walk up and poke Kami
>>1532236>You swear you heard tire screeches too for some reason.Saff should take note of this.If she knows what tyre screeches are, she knows what cars are. So before she lost her memory, she has to have been around an urban area.
>>1532397>E. Write in.Skills menu > Sense EnergySense Energy on Kami
>>1532538>>1532652On the other hand...Walking forward and dragging a reluctant Gohan behind you, you reach your hand up and poke the old green man right on his forehead. "Boop."His eyes shoot open immediately and he looks down at you, your finger still on his forehead. "...Can I help you something?""I'm Saff!" You greet him happily, then move aside so that he can see Gohan. "And this is Gohan. Are you mister Kami?"He looks between you and Gohan for a moment before nodding, leaning forward and placing one hand in the other. "Yes, I am Kami. What business do you have with me?""Oh good. Well mister Goku said you might be able to help me out," You begin explaining the issues of your memory loss, how you don't know where you came from or anything else past a year ago, and how you came across Goku and how he told you to come to him for help. The whole time Gohan is just staring at Kami with a mixture of fear and awe.For his part Kami listens to every word you say carefully, nodding his head along at certain times. When you're finished he stands up. "Hmmm, that is a peculiar story indeed."You pout. "It's not a story, it's true."He grins a little at that. "Hmm, what's true to one person might be a tale to another. Come with me for a moment children, I have something to show you." He walks off to the side and enters into another part of the room you didn't even notice. Of course you follow, what could possible go wrong?This second part of the room is more like a long hallway, it's still pretty dark too, but at the end of the hallway there's a crystal ball looking thing that Kami stands in front of. He places his hands on it and it immediately emits a soft blue glow, causing you and Gohan to shield your eyes a bit."Saff," He starts, eyes still locked onto the crystal ball. "Would you mind coming here and placing your hand on the sphere." Well you don't know what a sphere is, but you walk up and put your hand on the ball. It soon starts to develop a fire like color to it, much more different than what Kami's hand had done. "Just as I thought." He whispers to himself, looking down at you once more."What? What does it mean?" You ask, starting to get worried."As you know, I'm the guardian of Earth, which means that I can look down on every citizen of Earth when I please. However I wasn't able to do so with you, even when I felt your power rise up earlier this morning." You look confused, so he offers a small smile. "Back when you were punching trees." "Oooooh. Wait you saw that?!"He nods. "Only because Gohan was there with you. And now that you've touched the crystal ball, I've confirmed what I've had suspicions about." He takes a deep breath. "I'm afraid that you're not from this planet Saff.">A. How can that be?>B. So I'm an alien?>C. WHAT?!>D. Write-in
>>1532810>>D. Yeah, that makes sense.
>>1532810>B. So I'm an alien?
>>1532999Eh, I'll switch to >>1532852
>>1532852>>1533015"That makes sense." You say bluntly, causing Kami and Gohan to trip over themselves. "I mean, I've seen plenty of animal people, and some people have different colored skin, but I don't think I've come across a single person with horns and red skin like mine."Kami is already picking himself up, looking down at you with a bit of surprise. "I'm honestly surprised how easily you're taking this.""Well, I haven't known where I come from for a while now, so while it's weird hearing that I might be an alien or something, it feels nice to just know something about myself." You reply with smirk."Mister Kami," Gohan peeps, causing the guardian to look down at the boy. "If Saff isn't from this planet, then where IS she from?""I'm afraid I don't know," Kami says sadly. "I know only that she is not originally from here." He turns to you again, adopting a kinder tone. "Saff, there is nothing truly sadder than someone without a home. But I've seen the way you interact with Tien, and Goku's family. I have no doubt that your journey to find out who you are will be harsh, but with friends like these it will make your journey easier."You smile up Kami. "Yeah, I figured that too. Nothing worth fighting for is ever easy huh?""True. Now I've another question to ask you Saff. With the knowledge you've gained today, what will you do?""Huh?" You ask with surprise in your voice. "What do you mean mister Kami?""I mean," He starts again. "Will you stay with Goku and his family, search out for answers on your own, look for more friends, try to become stronger? What are your goals?""What are my goals." You repeat, trying to think of something to reply with.>For this one there aren't any choices, just give me some goals that you all would like, that you think would fit with Saff, or how you'd like her journey to go
>>1533054Saff's primary goal is probably gonna be figuring out her past, but finding a place to stay is the immediate problem.I'd say stay with Goku, but it seems like they're doing their own thing. Maybe we should get a lift back to Tien's place.We're sure to have made a good impression on him at least.
>>1533054I want to train with Tien,but also want to be with Gohan... maybe we could visit him sometimes?
>>1533054Alright, here are some ideas.>Find out where I came from, where my home is, who are my parents and my people, what's my real name?!That's the obvious choice.>Go back to the Crane Dojo and learn how to fight.Tien was nice, and even if Goku's stronger, he's not a teacher (yet) while Tien is. Somehow, fate drew us to his dojo. Besides, as far as I've seen, we haven't had any Crane-school protags in these DB/Z quests, and I kinda wanna explore that. Although I'll still happily drop Crane for Piccolo-style fighting.>Figure out what being a girl means?Saff seems pretty excited about being a laydee. >I wanna help people!Helping people is good. It's also how a five-year-old demon-looking thing survived on her own for who knows how long. It makes sense she'd have a favorable disposition towards this sort of thing.
>>1533091It wouldn't be that hard for you to visit from time to time, especially if you learn to fly.>>1533075Tien was totally intrigued with the short time you two had together. His students not so much.
>>1533143>His students not so much.Well they can fight us and lose for all I care about their jealous asses.
Okay I think I've got a pretty good understanding of where you guys want things to go.>Go live with Tien, or at least become a student of the Crane Dojo and learn that cool shit.>Find out more about your past>Walk the harsh road of a woman>Help people.That good?
>>1533161A lot of these pertain to self-discovery, so I'm gonna add another one, but it's one I don't think Saff would think up on her own (yet).>Figure out who I am.That's par the course for Shounen anime, though.
You think about Kami's question, you think about it really hard. You realize the guardian isn't just asking you out of curiosity, but that he's trying to figure out what kind of person you might be. For him, you're an enigma, something he can't just look at and grasp an understanding."Well, I really wanna' keep finding out who I am. It's not fun not being able to remember who I was a year ago." You tell Kami, who just nods his head. "Also I really need a place to live." You turn to look at Gohan and smile. "I'd love to come live with you and mister Goku and miss Chi-Chi, but you guys are a family, and I don't wanna' get in the way.""YOU WON'T GET IN THE WAY!" Gohan shouts, making you and Kami jump back a bit. The boy looks like he's about to cry. "You're not a bad person like I thought you were Saff, I'm sure my mom wouldn't mind letting you stay!"You think about it, consider it, and you really want to take him up on his offer, but you sigh. "I want to, but I think it's best I don't. Besides, I think mister Tien really started to like me after getting to know me a bit, and it's not like I can't come see you from time to time Gohan!" You feel yourself start to tear up a bit too, and before you know it you and Gohan are hugging each other and bawling your eyes out, Kami looking perfectly awkward as you do. "A-a-and I wanna' help people!" You choke out between tears, sniffling as a long trail of snot hangs out your nose. "I like helping people, it feels good!""That's good Saff, I'm glad you feel that way. It means that, no matter where you might be from, you're good honest little girl.""OH YEAH!" You shout, snapping your fingers. "Also I gotta' figure out what it means to be a lady! The road of a woman is probably harsh and cruel huh mister Kami?""I...wouldn't know." He answers, looking unsure of how to handle that question. "But from what you've told me Saff, I'm sure you'll do just fine. And Tien sounds like a superb person to learn from, he himself was once on the path of darkness, but he met Goku and managed to save himself."You nod, wiping your boogers away and smiling up at Kami. "Thanks mister Kami. C'mon Gohan, let's go tell your dad the good news!"The two of you race out of Kami's room, the old guardian smiling softly as you leave.Getting back to the open area of the lookout, you're surprised to see the place looks like a mess. A couple palm trees look like they were broken in half, and Mr. Popo's garden looks like it got stepped on. The most amazing sight is mister Goku on the floor, being pinned down by Popo as he sits on him. "And that'll teach you to ruin my flowers Goku.""Ahhh, sorry Mr. Popo, I didn't mean to." Goku whines out, clearly not comfortable."Hmmm." Popo hums out, noticing you and Gohan finally. "Oh hello children, did you have a nice talk with Kami?"You did, you tell Popo and Goku everything, Goku listening intently even as Popo still sits on his back. "Wow Saff, you're an alien huh? That's crazy."
>>1533216You nod your head. "So mister Goku, can you take me back to mister Tien's Dojo? I think I'd learn a lot from staying there."Goku pushes himself up, knocking Popo over in the process as he nods his head. "Sure thing Saff, but don't be afraid to stop by from time to time. You're the first kid Gohan's met that close to his age.""I promise mister Goku." You turn to Gohan. "And I promise I'll come see you a lot Gohan."The little boy smiles and nods his head. The three of you hop back on Nimbus and leave the lookout, Popo waving at you as you leave.The trip back down is a lot easier, especially with Gohan now fallen asleep. "Guess he's not used to so much excitement." Goku comments. As you travel over the land you can already see Tien's dojo in the distance, and Goku has Nimbus drop you off right at the front doors, in front of the same two guards from before. "Bye mister Goku!" You shout, waving as he and Gohan fly off. You turn back to the guards, grinning at them. "Hey guys, miss me?" "Uh?" Is all you get from them. Huh, guess they never saw a flying cloud before. Making your way past them and into the courtyard, you can already see that Tien has the students practicing their stances. A few of them blink in surprise when they see you, and you even see a bandaged up Bao and wave to him. "Hey!" "Saff?" You turn to see Tien, looking surprised to see you here. "Back already? What can I do for you?">A. I'm an alien!>B. I'm a lady!>C. I wanna' live with you mister Tien!>D. I wanna' be a Crane Student!>E. Write in.
>>1533236>E. I'm an alien lady!>D. I wanna' be a Crane Student!
>>1533236>>E. Write in."I wanna' play with Bao again."
>>1533236>A. I'm an alien!>B. I'm a lady!>E. I'm an alien lady!>D. I wanna be a Crane Student!
>>1533247>>1533286>>1533260"I'm an alien!" You shout."Wh-what?!" Tien looks shocked."I'm a lady!" You shout again, bouncing in place from how excited you are to tell more people."H-huh?" Tien now just looks confused, so do a great number of his students.You grin the widest grin you can, jumping up in the air and doing a back flip before landing. "I'M AN ALIEN LADY!"Tien blinks all three of his eyes at you, before giving a small chuckle. That chuckle soon turns into a hearty laugh that causes his students to look even more confused. "Heheh, so you're little girl form outer space then?""Yup!" You answer gleefully."Well, I'm glad you've found part of who you are. Is that all you came here to tell me though? I sensed that Goku was with you, but he's already left.""I wanna' be a Crane Student mister Tien!" You shout walking up to him and bowing respectfully. "If it's okay with you. I don't really have any other place to live right now." You turn your head to look at Bao, smiling at him. "And I wanna' play some more with mister Bao!""Urk" Bao looks like he's gonna' fall apart, a couple of the students have to keep him from toppling over.Looking back up, you can see Tien looking at your seriously. "If you're serious about it, then I'd gladly welcome you to our Dojo, but I have to warn you Saff, I don't talk half-measures. You have to be willing to give it your all every single day if you want to be a student here."Your grin turns a bit cocky as you stand up, placing your hands on your hips. "Mister Tien, I wouldn't have it any other way."He smiles. "Well then. Saff, welcome to the Crane School.">And that's it for tonight as far as Saff's adventures are concerned.>But now comes the fun part. Because you guys decided to start this adventure before the Raditz saga started, you had to take a lower power level, but that also means you had plenty of chances to raise your power level along the way. From sparring with Bao, to punching trees to learning how to sense energy, you've done a lot of stuff!>With that in mind, roll me a d50>The tiers are>1-9: +5>10-19: +10>20-29: +20>30-39: +40>40-49: +80>50: +160
Rolled 30 (1d50)>>1533347Here we go!...I'll admit, Gohan crying on us almost got me to change my mind about staying at Goku's place. But we can visit him, so it's all good.
Rolled 27 (1d50)>>1533347Get those gainz Saff!
Come on,we have 2 more rolls...
Wait five more minutes and then ya'll can roll again till we get four rolls.
Rolled 18 (1d50)>>1533347Rollan
Rolled 27 (1d50)Final roll I guess
Well,looks like we are not going to be a mary sue...
With that your final power level for this is 110. That's pretty decent for a six year old.Next session will take place a month from now in game time. In real time it'll probably be Tuesday.
>>1533565Thanks for running!
>>1533594Thanks for playing.By the way guys I can answer any questions if you have any.
>>1533667Really nice quest,nice to see a dragonball Qm that isnt extremely biased against using power levels like most Qm.Btw what are Goku and Tiens power levels at this time?
>>1535596Going by the power level things that Toriyama put out for that time, it looks like Tien was at 250 and Goku at 416. Since he was sparring with Popo do you guys think Goku deserves a power boost?
>>1533565Cool. We're the same tier as Goku circa first WMAT now.
>>1536032I think Goku is just fine where he is, especially considering all the training he does in tandem with his bullshit Saiyan genetics.
>>1536032Eh, maybe a small one, and only if he wouldn't have had that match at some point in the future without our intervention. It's just one sparring match, after all.Then again, since it's Goku, power levels don't matter really.
>>1536032Are we getting the Dodon Ray? It seems like the only way to stand a chance against Raditz would be shooting one of those through his eyes.
I'm extremely glad we picked Tien's dojo mostly because we'll have a nice character design with complementary colors.
>>1537325You can attempt to learn any moves you want, it's just you'll need someone to teach you. Well really having someone teach you the move makes it easier to learn, trying to copy it from just seeing it will always result in a d100 roll needed.>>1537690Their gi are pretty sweet. I always liked that it's similar to the Turtle School.
Hey Brushy? Where you at?
>>1548089Had work and found out my mom might be back on the drugs.
>>1548540Oh man, hope things turn out ok
>>1548540Oh...well.Keep getting your money up.I hope you're wrong about that second part though.
