You spent some time working on 19, making significant progress on her thanks to Bra’s assistance. You then met Tarble and Kuriza again, and offered to help the Ginyus and the young alien learn some of Earth’s secrets, Burter and Kuriza both learning the Raio-ken with relative ease. Finally, you broght them to Konpei’s palace, with Kuriza learning about Ki and the Ginyus getting some lessons on the Fusion Dance. Now you’ve headed to the Lookout to give Trip the Dragon Ball back and see just what your brother has been up to...
>>2107713“So why didn’t you activate them again when you became Kami?” Goku questions Trip as you give her the stone sphere.“To keep the temptation away from Majin Ozotto, mostly. But I also wished to make sure I understood my own limitations with the Dragon Balls. I can do little to modify them from their current setup, as I am not one of the Namekians’ Dragon Clan. I can, however, activate and deactivate them as needed” she responds, looking down at the Dragon Ball.“So we’d need to head to Namek to find someone to help you with that?” Gohan asks her.“If it were deemed necessary. Currently there is little one can do to alter Shenron’s abilities more than they have been.”>A. Would you want a Namekian apprentice, Trip?>B. So how have Acer and Izzy been? They’re almost done, aren’t they?>C. So... you know what’s coming. Do you feel we’re ready? Is there anything we should prepare for?>D. Something else?
>>2107713>A'Can't Kami still mentor you through Piccolo?'>B.>C. >D. "What little things can you do?"
>>2107715B & C.
>>2107715>>A>'Can't Kami still mentor you through Piccolo?'>>B.>>C. >>D. "What little things can you do?"Whooot! Let teh fun begin!
>>2107715“Hmm... can’t Kami still mentor you through Piccolo if you still need help?” you ask her.She shakes her head. “There is not much else he left for me to learn that is vital to my role as Earth’s Kami. The Dragon Balls will work as he intended, though I have looked into methods of purifying the negative energy that builds up within them with each wish. I have learned that there is one way to speed up their purification, though that requires keeping them inactive.”“How long would that take?” Goku questions.“Decades. Maybe as many as 50 years, but less than a century.”He’s taken aback by that. “Woah. Well, guess that’s not starting any time soon...”“So... would you want a Namekian apprentice of some kind, Trip?” you ask next, recalling some of the younger Namekians you all met back there. “And what little can you do for Shenron?”“When the time comes to pass on my title, I may take on an apprentice, but that is... hopefully a long ways off. As for Shenron, Kami’s last alterations are about the most efficient configuration of his power that one could ask for.” she answers somewhat defensively. “Piccolo has decided to stay here on the Lookout for the time being. He recalls what happens in... what the older Gohan told him.”“O-other me?” your son hesitantly questions of her.Trip nods. “He knows of the danger lurking out there. He plans to keep that dark future from happening.”You cross your arms. “So... you know what we’re up against. Tell us, Trip... when Dr. Raichi arrives, do you believe we’re ready for him? Is there anything we should do to prepare?”Trip takes a moment to look over you. A warm, motherly smile appears on her face. “...I see that you have taken the last step on the path, Maple. At this point, I would tell you to strengthen the bonds you have with your friends and allies. Do not forget the lessons you have learned, but do not neglect keeping those bonds you have made. Nurture them and allow them to grow. You have grown much since I first met you. I am quite proud of the young woman you’ve become.”You rub the back of your neck bashfully. “You’re gonna make me blush here...”Trip next turns to Goku. “And you, Son Goku, have grown greatly too since we first met. You have become a strong and kind young man. I could not be more proud of what you have become.”Goku grins wide. “Thanks, Trip!”“For you, I believe you should work with your brother more. The two of you have grown close, and you have helped him change for the better. But there are things he has struggled with. Help him grow beyond the limits he has set for himself once again.”“Got it!”(cont.)
>>2107950Your redheaded apprentice is next. “Ms. Chuu Lee... that you are even here with us is a testament to how far you have come. But I know you have struggled with focus recently. You worry about where you will end up going. For you, I want you to think about this: what do you want to protect the most? What do you want to nurture and see grow? Look deep inside yourself and you will find the answer you have been seeking.”Chuu Lee starts pondering on those questions. “Nurture and grow, huh?”“Ooh, ooh, Auntie Trip! Us next, us next!” Peppa shouts out.“Gohan, Peppa, the two of you have so much ahead of you both... but there are some things I believe you two can focus on. Peppa, strive to keep your enthusiasm under control, work to focus your strength better, and allow yourself to grow even stronger by working with others. Gohan... do not envy the growth of others, but focus yourself instead on improving. If you doubt yourself, it will hamper your growth. You have many years ahead of you, work to use them to their fullest.”Peppa seems a little confused, but Gohan clearly understands what she means. He gives her a quiet nod.You pat your son’s head softly. “So... what about Acer and Izzy? Aren’t they almost done?”“Scratch the ‘almost,’ sis.” your brother’s voice calls out distantly.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sIJm4m1bonkAll of you wait for them to arrive... and you can sense their improvement. In fact... judging by the amount of power you’re feeling, Acer has matched you in power exactly. Izumi meanwhile... she isn’t quite up to Gohan, Peppa, or even Pantea, but she’s jumped leagues higher than she was when she first went in. Her Power Level must be over a million. The two figures step out, Acer with a prideful grin across his face, and Izumi... with a fairly adorable little tunic, in the style of Acer’s old one, beaming with enthusiasm.“I see that your time in there went to good use.” you tell your brother.“This lil’ squirt here improved more than I did, to be honest.” Acer says with a little laugh.“Not as little anymore, dad.” she declares with a mild pout.>A. So... why now, exactly?>B. Izzy, look how big you’ve gotten! Barely even recognized you! Want a new outfit from Auntie Maple?>C. Going to head down and see Chi-chi, then?>D. Something else?
>>2107955>A. So... why now, exactly?
>>2107955>>A. So... why now, exactly?
>>2107955>A & C.
>>2107955>A.Trip's talking like a real Kami.ah'm so proud.
>>2107955You glance at your brother. “So... why now, exactly?”“I did promise to give her a turn in the Time Chamber. Now seemed like the best time.” he tells you, approaching. But he then adds, telepathically, ‘Got a warning for this. He’s going to be here soon, and Izzy needs to be able to defend herself when the time comes. And... she might have to defend more than herself. I had a glimpse of something in Diablo Desert, a machine that was making the animals there sick with some kind of gas.’‘...I had a glimpse into Chuu Lee’s future. There was something up north that she was facing down. Did it look like...?’ You give your brother a glimpse of the thing you saw.‘Yeah. That exactly. Don’t know how many of those will be here. But if it’s what I think it is... Izzy needs to be able to keep herself safe while we deal with them.’>A. I understand, brobro>B. You think she might need to protect her grandpa too?>C. What about the spirits ghost dad has been gathering?>D. Something else?
>>2108036>>A. I understand, brobro>C. What about the spirits ghost dad has been gathering?
>>2108036>A. I understand, brobro>C. >D. Ask if Tripitaka has any sacred water. Maybe that can counter the gas. Put that in inhalers and we can attempt a counter too it.
>>2108036‘I understand, brobro. What about the spirits ghost dad has been gathering, thought?’Your brother gently pats his daughter’s head. ‘If I had to guess, they might be defending those things. Which means we will have to go out there and take them down by ourselves. We both know what he intends to do.’‘Yeah... what about that gas, though? Do you think...?’‘Could be. Could also be modified in some way, maybe Towa has something similar to the Black Water Mist or Aquma.’Not a pleasant thought. Your silence has attracted everyone’s attention, so you clear your throat. “Trip, do you have any Sacred Water left?”She’s curious about your question. “Er... I do believe we do. Why do you ask?”“Because there’s a good hunch Towa and Dr. Raichi might have something like the Black Water Mist ready again. How much do you have?”“Ah. Well, we should have enough to cover the Earth like it did previously.” she tells you.Your eyes open wide. Of course. Of course that’s why Dr. Raichi destroyed the Lookout first in the Future! Not just for Piccolo and the Dragon Balls, but also to prevent the Sacred Water from interfering with his plans. Agh... well, just one more reason to keep the Lookout safe. “Okay, that should be good. Make sure it’s secure, don’t want anything sneaking in here and trying to steal it from you.”“Of course, Maple.”Okay, got that planned out. So... what next? Day’s young, and you might have a lot to do...>A. Go meet with Raditz, see how he’s doing>B. Piccolo’s nearby, should talk with him some>C. Check in with Videl and Mark, see what they’ll be doing>D. You should spend some time with Acer, Izumi, and Chi-chi>E. Krillin, Lapis, and Lazuli are probably training together again>F. Gotta go back to work on 19 with Bulma, Bra, and Pantea>G. Kuriza should be making some decent progress>H. Something else?Pick one.
>>2108140>A. Go meet with Raditz, see how he’s doingClothes Beam! All the enchantments with rainbow armor! Weighted up!
>>2108140>>C. Check in with Videl and Mark, see what they’ll be doing
Rolled 2 (1d2)>>2108140Fffffug. Why you gotta make me choose. Coin flipping it.A = 1C = 2
>>2108250C it is!
>>2108140You wish Acer well as you teleport with everyone to Mark’s place, deciding to check in on him and Videl. The girl spots you all almost immediately, proudly running over to Chuu Lee and welcoming her first. “Teach! Hi! Ah, hey everyone!”“Well someone’s enthusiastic today.” the redheaded young woman comments.“Today’s the day. Pantea and I are gonna find that hidden strength.” Videl tells her with determination.“You sure?” Chuu Lee asks with a smile.“Positive!”Mark waves to you all from some distance away. “Heh, don’t get too ahead of yourself, sweetie.”>A. Hey Mark, how’ve you been?>B. Check in on Miguel, see how she is>C. You know, Videl, Pantea might be busy today...>D. Something else?
>>2108321>>A. Hey Mark, how’ve you been?>>B. Check in on Miguel, see how she is
>>2108321>A. Oh hi Mark
>>2108321>A. Hey Mark, how’ve you been?>C.>D. "Peppa, or Izumi could fill in. You might not learn what you were expecting but it may unveil something new.">B.
>>2108321“Mark! Miguel! How’ve you two been?”“Things have been pretty peaceful over here.” Mark replies. “Videl’s been in pretty high spirits.”“Every day she seems even more determined but more mature than the last.” Miguel adds. “She is just growing up so fast.”“Heh, I’ll say.” You walk in with Goku, Peppa and Gohan opting to stay with Videl and Chuu Lee as they talk.Mark downs a cup of coffee, Miguel getting another for herself. “So, what brings you here? Just checking on my girl’s progress?”You take a deep breath. “Part of it. I know you’ve heard that something is coming soon.”Mark sighs. “Yeah... just doesn’t seem like Earth can catch a break.”“We do know what to prepare for, though. How’ve you been with your training?”Mark waves his hand. “Ehh... I’ve been trying to catch up, but every time I do, seems you guys just take another leap ahead.”“Maple, Goku, coffee?” Miguel asks.>A. Yes please!>B. Ah, no, but thank you though>C. Mark, have you considered asking Trip to try and unlock your potential?>D. Who’ve you been training with?>E. Something else?
>>2108397>>A. Yes please!>C. Mark, have you considered asking Trip to try and unlock your potential?FOR FUCKS SAKE THIS!
>>2108425Sorry, sorry. I just REALLY love coffee.
>>2108397>A. Yes please!>C. Mark, have you considered asking Trip to try and unlock your potential?>D. Who’ve you been training with?
>>2108397“Ah, yes, please!” you tell her. “Heh, Bulma might’ve gone through three pots of the stuff by now if Bra and Pantea haven’t been able to stop her.”“She’s been working all this time, huh?” Miguel asks.“She’s been trying her best to help 19 be... well, at the very least able to make her own choices.”“Eh, I bet she’ll be done in no time.” Goku states, Miguel finally bringing both of you a cup of coffee.“Anyway, Mark, have you considered asking Trip to unlock your potential? If you’re that worried on catching up, maybe you could give it a try.”“Thought about it. Figured, though, I should try that Time Chamber thing first. Saw what Videl was capable of with it, but I’ve kinda wanted things to settle down first before jumping in there.”“Well, Acer and Izumi just exited the chamber. Maybe you could go in there with someone else today?”Mark shrugs. “Maybe. You have someone in mind?”“Well, who’ve you been training with recently?” You take a sip of the coffee, eyes widening a bit. Wow, wow this stuff is good. Got just the right kick of bitterness and just the right bit of sweetness to really wake you up. “Trying to get the students of Satan Castle up to speed. Hasn’t been easy, given everything that’s been going on.”“Hmm...” Goku ponders.“Something up, monkey boy?”Goku grins. “Well, just had a thought. Maybe you and Captain Ginyu could work together!”>DRAGON BALL TUFFLE QUEST Z #73... Paused.>Twitter account is @KatoQm, will have status updates there>Got some questions for the QM? Characters? Suggestions? Throw them at ask.fm/QMKato and I'll try to answer them as best I canAnd that's all for tonight, folks. We’ll continue tomorrow starting ~5:30 pm PST. I’ll be around for a bit for some questions and such. Did y’all have fun?
>>2108475Mark and Ginyu? Well shit, that could work pretty well. Good times, Kato, thanks for running.
>>2108475>Mark and Captain GinyuOh god yes.
>>2108475>Mark and Ginyu hamming it up before Ghost FriezaI didn’t know I wanted this
>>2108475You know, Mark did wield the Masamune very well against Magil.Perhaps he needs his own holy weapon?
>>2108478>>2108488>>2108962Glad y'all like the idea!>>2109084Perhaps.Anyway, we're back!>>2108475“Captain who now?” Mark questions Goku.“Ginyu! That guy working for Kuriza.”Mark gulps. “Y-you mean Freeza’s kid?”“Well, yeah. We’ve been trying to help him and Ginyu’s squad prepare for what’s coming next.” you add in.“Maple, isn’t that... just a little dangerous?” Mark questions.“Kuriza’s still just a kid. Plus, Freeza’s soul has been taken out of Hell, and there’s a good chance he’ll show up here on Earth again. We need to prepare for that.”Mark sighs out softly. “I remember Vegeta fighting him. Nappa and I were fighting his forces, was hectic. Might not have lasted if Bra didn’t show up to help.”“Well, if you train with Ginyu, I bet you’ll be able to better understand how Freeza fights. Maybe you could beat Freeza this time!” Goku exclaims.Mark seems doubtful, but starts considering the idea.>A. I bet Ginyu could learn a lot from you, Mark. Show ‘em what a fellow Mifan Champ is capable of!>B. Well, maybe someone else could help you train, like... (who?)>C. Have you considered Fusion?>D. Something else?
>>2109629>D.There's always training with Neko Majin Z and Arale. Or the Kaiju.>A.>C.
>>2109629>>A. I bet Ginyu could learn a lot from you, Mark. Show ‘em what a fellow Mifan Champ is capable of!
>>2109629“I mean, there are other options out there, but I bet Ginyu could learn a lot from you, Mark. Show ‘em what a fellow Mifan Champ is capable of!” you declare cheerfully.He grins. “Heh, okay, you know what? I’ll take you up on that offer. Where is this Ginyu guy now?”“Let’s see...” You take a moment to focus, trying to sense Ginyu’s Ki, and find him still at Konpei’s palace, with Kuriza. Curiously, seems the other Ginyus have spread out. Recoome seems to be off in West City, while Burter’s... hah, he’s flying around the Earth, with the Raio-ken, seems like. Guldo is off in Mifan, while Jeice seems to be at Capsule Corp. Anyway, you make contact with Ginyu via Scouter and let him know your idea.“A year’s worth of training in just a day? Sounds like crazy talk, but guess I can say I’ve heard stranger things. Tell you what, if he can show me he’s got what it takes, I’ll take up the offer.”“Er... in terms of strength, or-?”“A good fighter needs to know how to be stylish, Maple, you know that!”Posing, got it. You look over to Mark. “So, he’s willing, but... gonna need to show him you can work with him.”“What do you mean?”“The Ginyu Force pride themselves on style just as much as they do strength. I managed to win them over when I first met them with a rousing speech and-”“Oh.” Mark interrupts, getting exactly what you’re saying. “...Eh, you know what, the Great Hercule is more than willing to accept his challenge.” he says proudly.>A. Oh you gotta watch this, no way you are missing this show>B. Take care then, Mark, we gotta meet with Raditz!>C. Wonder if Krillin and his students are doing okay>D. Should probably go back and check on Piccolo again, got some questions for him>E. Something else?
>>2109743>A. I gotta see this.
Pretty quiet tonight
Swordanon? Moon? ...Kato, you still here?
>>2109743>A. Oh you gotta watch this, no way you are missing this show
>>2109811>>2109858>>2109932>>2109967Anon, it's okay, calm down.
>>2109975Sorry, just way quieter than I was expecting. Where is everyone?
>>2110096An, there is someone else here. Was getting worried.
Thing about this kinda' quests, EhYIzxSTanon, is that there's a huge ass backlog of stuff new people gotta' read in order to catch up. That and people who do follow the quest are gonna' probably be working or some shit when it's going on. Shit happens.Oh right and>AAnyways, the best thing about Kato's quests is that you learn patience....that was a little more mean than I meant it to be.Let me rephrase.The best thing about Kato's quests is that you get time to read the backlog. Yeah that's better.
>>2110102Ah, sorry. Just been longer than I'm used to.
>>2110106You weren't here during the great shitter break of '15.Many anons lost their lives that week.
>>2110102I also am fine with things taking a bit longer, as long as it means people get a chance to make their decisions.>>2110111Primus it's really been that long...? Where does the time go?>>2109743Oh you gotta watch this as it goes down, there is no way you are missing this. Mark agrees to meet Captain Ginyu at the Lookout, and insists that Videl come along too, much to the girl’s reluctance. Miguel also decides to come along, quite enthusiastically, too. Upon reaching the destination, you wait for Ginyu to arrive, the purple, horned alien finally reaches the lookout.A rare, soft wind blows through the area, Mark’s cape flowing. Videl hides her face, groaning lowly. Ginyu crosses his arms. “So, you’re this Satan guy. Heard you did a number on Zarbon a while back. Heh, not too bad a feat... but do you have what it takes?”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mudZ3QykX10Mark raises his fist into the air, then points upwards, letting out a powerful shout, “GINYU! Do not let these dashing looks fool you! I, just like these other fine folks, am a Champion of this planet! You ask if I have what it takes?” Mark leaps into the air, spinning once before landing down, slamming his fist into the ground. “The Master of the Megaton Punch!” He stands up, flexing. “Vanquisher of Demons! Head of Satan Castle!” And then he rolls across the ground, stopping two meters before Ginyu and shaking his fist in the air. “THE ONE! THE ONLY!” He spreads his legs, throwing out two victory signs as he declares, “THE GREAT HERCULE!”Little Videl looks like she wants to be ANYWHERE but here right now. Miguel meanwhile lets out a soft, romantic sigh. Ah, but your attention is focused on Ginyu. Did Mark’s display really move him...?Ginyu is silent for a short while, but Mark doesn’t let up his victorious pose. Finally, Ginyu’s arms drop down... and one of them reaches up into a salute. “Truly, this planet has warriors capable of style as well as strength. Maple is no fluke, it seems.” Ginyu reaches his hand out. “Mark Satan... Hercule. I accept your offer to work together.”Mark respectfully shakes it... and the two of them let go, then raise their arms higher, clasping hands tight, grinning. Goku just smiles, placing his hands behind his head. “Well, glad this worked out!”>A. Smart thinking, monkey boy!>B. Mark, Ginyu, good luck!>C. Aw come on Videl, that was cool!>D. Something else?
>>2110142>>A. Smart thinking, monkey boy!>>B. Mark, Ginyu, good luck!>Give Goku a kiss>On the cheek....perverts.
>>2110142That was exactly what I wanted.>>2110162Backing.
>>2110142“Smart thinking, monkey boy!” you tell him, giving Goku a kiss on the cheek. Videl rolls her eyes at you, Chuu Lee chuckling softly.“Heh heh. Ah, just figured they’d work well together.” Goku comments.Mark and Ginyu walk past you both, Mark winking at his wife. “See you in a day, my little angel.”“You take care of yourself, you rascally devil.” she tells him.“Beh. Parents being lovey-dovey.” Videl comments. “Right, Peppa?”Your daughter giggles out, “They’re silly.”“Mark, Ginyu, good luck in there! Oh, and don’t forget to ask Trip about some scenarios! I bet Yardrat might be a good one for you, Ginyu?”The purple alien flinches. “W-what do you mean?”“I’ll explain that, you see....”As Mark and Ginyu head off, Videl shaking her head. “Why does dad still do stuff like that?”“Ah, give it a try some time. You might have some fun.” Chuu Lee tells the girl.“I’d rather not be that hammy. He’s got enough there for two whole pigs.”Chuu Lee turns to you. “Anyway, Maple, Goku, I’m gonna head off with Videl, see if I can help her and Pantea get this new power.”“Sure thing, you take care!”As the two of them fly off, Goku looks out into the distance. “So... Maple, I’m feeling like meeting with Raditz. You coming?”>DRAGON BALL TUFFLE QUEST Z #73... Paused.>Twitter account is @KatoQm, will have status updates there>Got some questions for the QM?

I’ll be around for a bit for some questions and such. Did y’all have fun?
>>2110201Loved it as always Kato.Just a quick question or two.1. If Mark does get his potential unlocked, what sort of Power Level range are we lookin' at here?2. Do you prefer THIS as a basis for a Hercule/Ginyu fusion....
>>2110201Fun times, Kato. Glad Goku got to have a moment, been worrying we've been leaving him out a bit too much. Do wanna see Raditz next though.>>2110204This one looks great. Damn that site is too much fun.
>>2110219>Damn that site is too much fun.It is, isn't it? Dragon Ball Fusion Generator has been a blast.Also weird how fusing Whis with anyone also turns out to be a sexy fusion.
Attention all Dragon Ball fans, attention all Dragon Ball fans!How's your day?That is all.
>>2111199Oh, pretty good.Took a long ass nap so I wouldn't pass out early on you guys again.
Rolled 11, 14, 8, 2, 9 = 44 (5d20)>>2110203>>2110204Glad to hear!Depending on how things go, Mark might reach the same strength Yamcha did on Namek. Maybe he'll go even higher.That second one is hilarious. Saw that site the other day.>>2110219Glad to hear! Have been meaning to give Goku some more things to do with y'all.Anyway, sorry about the delay, we're back!>>2110201“I wanna see Uncle Raditz!” Peppa shouts out. “Can I go too mom?”“I’d like to too.” Gohan joins in. “He’s in Jingle Village, right? That means he’s with Suno and Eighter. It’s been a long time since we last saw Eighter.”Goku grins. “Ah yeah! Heh, bet he’s in for a real surprise seeing how big you two have been.”You know... it really has been a while for them, especially with a year in the Hyperbolic Time Chamber. You think back a bit, how you first met Eighter, helping him and Goku take down that robot, and years later, he showed up in the battle against King Piccolo. Then Commander Red tried to take him in that tower of his. Well, you could stop in with them, but there are some other things you can focus on too.>A. Here, I’ll teleport us all there>B. Actually, I should help Bulma with 19, but I’ll stop by soon, okay?>C. I’ll meet you there, wanna ask Piccolo something first>D. Something else?
>>2111210>>B. Actually, I should help Bulma with 19, but I’ll stop by soon, okay?I want family bonding time as much as the next guy, but I also want to fix cute Robowaifu's.DAMN YOU ROBOWAIFU'S!
>>2111210>A. Here, I’ll teleport us all thereI'd go with the 19 option, but I have no ideas on how to help her any further. Unless Pilaf got his coding done.
>>2111199Doing good.>>2111210>A.Goku's brobro needs some time too and we GOTTA see how Suno is doing with him.>>211121319 is not waifu. If anything, she is daughteru.
>>2111238I see 19 like a sister.Like Chichi (older?) and Chuu Lee as a younger.19 is more like....well what we could've been if we had chosen Robo Dad.
>>2111215>>2111238Bah, I'll go with>A
Rolled 10, 14, 3, 8, 2 = 37 (5d20)>>2111210“I’ll teleport us there. Grab on, everyone!”You use Instant Transmission and arrive at Jingle Village near Suno’s house, spotting her and Raditz in the distance. “Ah, Maple, Goku, and little Gohan and Peppa too. It has been quite a long time.” a friendly voice greets you all.“Uncle Eighter!” Peppa shouts out cheerfully, running to the large android man. Gohan runs over too, Eighter picking them up.“Hohoh, saw you on television, but wow, you both look even bigger in person. Seems your mom has been feeding you kids really well.” He then looks over at you and Goku. “You both look well, too.”“Heh heh, yep! Glad to see you again, Eighter.” Goku states.“What brings all of you here?”You hear a loud sigh from nearby. “I know why.” Raditz comments, resigning himself to what he thinks you’re about to say. He approaches you, the soft snow crunching under his boots. “I guess you were going to see it for yourself some time.”“She IS a bit of a romantic, haha.” Suno comments with a sweet little laugh. “Haven’t really changed much since I first met you, Maple.”>A. So... there’s a story here. I wanna hear it, don’t skip the details>B. Sorry to disappoint, but we’re not here about that (yet...)>C. How have you been, Suno? You know, aside from... this>D.

Rolled 19 (1d20)>>2111304You chuckle slightly. “Sorry to disappoint, but we’re not here for that.” you tell them, lowly mumbling “Yet.” under your breath.“...This is a genuine surprise.” Raditz states, bemused and curious.“Raditz, I think it’s about time we practice Fusion again.” Goku tells his brother. “And we need to train more, ‘cause something big is coming soon.”Raditz almost seems relieved. “Ahh, of course. So, do you know how soon it’ll be?”“About this week. Sooner rather than later.” you tell him solemnly.“Um... mind if I ask what this all is? Is there ANOTHER villain coming here to try and take over the world?” Suno asks.“Not just anyone. Someone who has been gathering all the defeated foes we’ve faced, preparing to bring the whole Earth to ruin. And... someone responsible for my brother and I ending up here in the first place. Who abandoned us here. Dr. Raichi.”Suno crosses her hands behind her back. “...Forgive me if this seems a little naive, but, you all have a bit of a track record. Is this really something you guys can’t handle yourselves?”“It’s what we’ve been anticipating the day we arrived on Earth. We can’t take any chances... because I’ve seen what happens if we fail.” you tell her bluntly. “Raditz, are you ready?”He approaches Goku, grinning confidently. “To think how far things have come since that day we were reuinted. I wonder if our father would think of us now?”“Bet he’d be proud of you, Raditz, for how strong you’ve gotten.” Goku reassures, tapping his fist against his brother’s. “Let’s get this started.”“Indeed.” The two of them leap into the sky, blasting snow away from where they were standing.You place your hands behind your head, smiling at them as they start to train, but turn your attention back to Suno. “So... it really has been a while since we last talked. How have you been, Suno?”She puts her hands in her pockets. “Work took a bit of a nosedive last week due to Ozotto, but I’ve been managing. My Nimbus probably enjoyed the little break it got.”“Still doing deliveries for people?”Suno nods. “I just want to be able to help in my own way. Mr. Korin was nice enough to let me have one, it’s the least I can do to try and make the most of it.” She glances at Peppa and Gohan hanging under Eighter’s arms by their tails, a soft, sweet smile appearing on her face. “Would you like to come inside? Still a little chilly out here.”>A. If you’re offering, sure!>B. Ah, sorry, I still got a few more things to talk with Raditz about>C. ...Okay, for real though. You? Raditz? Story, please!>D. Something else?
>>2111464>A. "Got any cocoa with those small marshmallows?">C.>D. Offer to teach her how to use her ki to warm herself, like we did for the land of ice.

Though... you have cocoa with those tiny marshmallows?”Suno nods approvingly. “Only the best to warm you up on a cool day.”“Cocoa?” Peppa questions.“The drink, sweetie.” Right, she does have that friend at her school.Suno walks you in, the kids opting to play outside with Eighter some more, Gohan getting to work making a snowman that looks like him. Suno heads into her kitchen, preparing some hot cocoa for you both. “It really has been a while since you two visited.” she notes. “Understandable with all that you’ve been through, though.”“And what we have ahead. Though... I dunno, maybe it’s a bit of naive hope, but part of me wants to think this will be the last real ‘big one’ for a long time. Dr. Raichi... he’s the one who made me, who made Acer. And when we failed to live up to his expectations as ‘tools of vengeance,’ he threw us out.”Suno hands you a cup. “Not much of a father.”“We were lucky we met Master Roshi. He adopted us, and was more of a father to us than Raichi ever was.”“Feel like one big weight’s being lifted up off your shoulders, huh?” Suno asks.“Of course, there’s still my stalker to worry about, but... yes. It’s still a lot, though... ah, enough about that. Suno, have you ever considered trying to learn Ki? Goku, myself, and the kids all learned how to keep ourselves warm with it. I mean, the air’s still cool, but it’s good for endurance.”“Honestly I wonder why you guys haven’t written a book on that stuff yet.” Suno comments, taking a sip of her cocoa, a satisfied sigh escaping her lips. “And... well, maybe. But I’m a a little used to the cold. Plus, got plenty to warm myself up when I need to. Like this.” she raises her cup.You finally take a sip yourself, thinking about the book idea. She does have a good point on that. But your thoughts are immediately distracted by the cocoa. Ooooh it’s just about perfect! A sweet, chocolatey taste enhanced just the right amount by those tiny marshmallows, and plenty warm, but not too hot. “Well, keep it in mind.”“Of course, of course...”(cont.)
>>2111715You look down into the cup, contemplating taking another sip before you ask Suno the next question. Bah, just go for it! “...Okay, for real. You? Raditz? Story, please!”“He really has kept it under wraps that tightly, huh?” Suno asks.“You won’t believe where I first heard it from. But come on, I gotta know.”She smiles nostalgically. “It’s kinda funny, really. So... I mean, I was kinda aware of him before the ‘incident.’ You know, with him being with you and Goku and all that.”“...Incident?”“Well... you’d think that somehow, people flying in the air would be more capable of staying out of each other’s way. Turns out we weren’t.” Suno starts bashfully, her cheeks gaining a slightly pinkish tint. “I was trying to make a delivery that dropped off at the last minute, he was flying out in the open. We... kinda crashed into each other. Literally.”“Ouch.”“I hit him hard enough that it ended up knocking me off my Nimbus. He... well, initially I heard shouting, but I was falling so fast that I couldn’t hear what it was. Almost hit the trees, Nimbus speeding down to try and catch me. Raditz got there first.” Suno takes another sip. “...And we crashed into the trees anyway. He was able to keep me from getting hurt, but wasn’t the most... graceful of landings.”Oh. Oh boy, you’re starting to see why Raditz didn’t want to bring this up before.>A. Go on, please!>B. ...You get the package delivered on time?>C. Ahh, I think I can see the rest from here>D. Something else?
Can we hide the Earth somewhere and fight on the Moon instead?
>>2111720>B. ...You get the package delivered on time?How big was the package anyhow?
>>2111720>B.>A.Raditz you dork.
>>2111720Ah. Love at first crash.Least you didn't shoot him in the forehead.>A. Go on, please!>B. ...You get the package delivered on time?And isn't Bulma's sister a writer? We should talk to her about that....
>>2111740>Least you didn't shoot him in the forehead.Add this, add this!
>>2111721Well we do know some orphans with mirror-invisibility tech.
>>2111720>I heard shouting, but I was falling so fast that I couldn’t hear what it was.Something like..."Goddamn, redheads!"
Rolled 1, 8, 15, 17, 1 = 42 (5d20)>>2111720You can’t help but laugh a little. “Raditz, you dork... well, at least you didn’t shoot him in the forehead first time you met him.”Suno raises her eyebrow, sipping some more cocoa before continuing. “...I would hope not.”“Happened with me and Goku. Though, Bulma did do it first. He shrugged it off though, both times.”She shakes her head. “Somehow, even back then, his thickheadedness seemed to be one of his more... prominent qualities...”“Still is. He’s grown a lot since then, but he’s still my monkey boy. But enough about him, what about that package, you get that delivered on time? How big was it?”She rubs the back of her neck. “It... wasn’t as lucky as I was. It was a fairly large package, and Nimbus prioritizing my safety over trying to save it.”“Oof... that sucks.”“I paid for the replacement out of pocket. Raditz was kinda apologetic about it, though at first we had some... arguments.” Suno admits.“Heh, forgive me, just... kinda funny thinking about that.”“From there, we just started taking time to get to know each other better. It... was a shaky start, and it did test my patience at times. But the more we talked, more we came to understand each other, Raditz finally working to pay me back for the broken package.”You rub your chin. “...I did kinda note he went off on his own a few times.”“Still, we’re together now. And I think part of him has really wanted something like this.”>A. So... you thought about kids?>B. When’s the wedding bells?>C. We could’ve helped pay for it, you know...>D. Something else?

>>2111909>Two onesowwwwww>D. Something else?I think maybe Gine and Bardock being together has something to do with that. Apart from royalty, Saiyan's don't really 'mate' like humans or tuffles traditionally do.Plus maybe seeing Goku, and his niece & nephew might've encouraged him..>A>B>D. Ever think about expanding your delivery job? Korin has a ton of nimbuses, maybe we could work something out? It'd be a good system to deliver senzus too.
>>2111925That first D wasn't suppose to be there...ah well.

Rolled 6, 16, 2, 20, 9 = 53 (5d20)>>2111909(hooh, that roll could've gone better, but will make foe an interesting bit later)Thinking about it... maybe there’s a bit more to this. His mother and father didn’t have a typical Saiyan relationship... plus, there’s you and Goku to consider. Raditz does really like his neice and nephew. Might’ve encouraged him, if just a bit."You know, could’ve asked us to help pay for the damages.”“Raditz and I both came to an agreement over responsibilty of what happened. Plus, I’m pretty sure he’d be just a little embarrassed about such a thing.“Ah, fair enough.” Well, if they’re this far along... “So... Suno, tell me. Haaaave you thought about childr-?”“Not until we’re married.” she interrupts, brows furled as she pouts just a little bit. “I’ve made sure he knows that, too.”“Ahaha. So how about the wedding bells?”“When he’s ready.” Suno takes another sip of her cocoa. “I know he has a lot on his mind. I don’t want either of us to stumble into something like that.”You smile at her. “Heh, that’s fair. You know... I gotta say, I’m glad for you two. He’s never been all that open about this, but I’m glad you two are doing well together.”“Thank you, Maple. I do feel like he tries to keep himself fairly reserved more than he should, but I can understand where he’s coming from with it.” She looks down at her cocoa, less than half of it left. “Do have to wonder what he’d do all day aside from training.”“Hmm... ever thought about trying to increase the delivery job a bit? You know, Korin does have more Nimbuses.”Suno shakes her head. “They work better when there’s someone riding them, and Master Korin doesn’t just give them out for free, Maple. I earned mine, fair and square, and I can’t exactly hire lots of people given their requirements. I would like to help more people, but for now, I do what I can with what’s available.”“Heh, well Suno, just one thing left to say.” You raise the mug. “Welcome to the monkey club.”She laughs, tapping her mug against yours. “You’re a still a bit of a dork sometimes, Maple. But thank you.”>DRAGON BALL TUFFLE QUEST Z #73... Paused.>Twitter account is @KatoQm, will have status updates there>Got some questions for the QM? Characters? Suggestions?

Some questions and thoughts I had while waiting...I wonder if Eighter has a soul, and if that will help us with 19 at all?Would the Goku/Raditz fusion train better if it got to fight two SSJ 2's and a plucky tuffle or instead have the kid's fusion fight against the adults fusion with Maple acting as referee?

My apologies if we have to cut the thread short, but I'll do my best to run.And with that, we're back!
>>2114173Hey man, you get well, that's what's important.
>>2112018>>2112018You start to feel Goku and Raditz’s power start to climb higher outside, their sparring getting just a bit more intense. “So... have you been up to anything else aside from trying to save the world one more time?” Suno asks.“Well, been working with Bulma a lot. Had this project on Ki containers we were working on, but then given the incident with Ozotto, we started on a different thing. I think you might have seen her on TV.”Suno tilts her head. “...Her?”“The pale girl with the weird clothes. She’s... actually an Artificial Human, like Eighter.”Her eyes go wide. “W-wait, really?”You look down into your mug, the swollen marshmallows slowly floating on the top of it. “Made by Dr. Gero, just like Eighter, though another person helped in her creation. Bulma and I have been trying to fix her up. Gero’s programming left her quite... stunted. She’s fully aware, but she was designed as being incapable of going against Gero’s orders, even if she wants to.”“That’s horrible!” Suno declares. “Wait... I think I remember seeing her on TV, after Tien and Launch sealed up Ozotto. She looked like she fainted.”You close your eyes, remembering it all. “Gero’s programming was forcing her to try and cause more trouble. Even though she knew that she would fail. She... made the only choice she could. She shut herself down.”Suno gasps. “Y-you mean... she’s...?”“Oh, no no, she’s still... well, ‘alive,’ but the only option she had to go against Gero’s orders was to make herself incapable of doing so. Since then, Bulma and I have discovered some... interesting programming notes in her memory banks. We’ve been trying to restore what personality she managed to display before Gero stunted everything.”Suno looks out her window, spotting Eighter still playing with the kids. You catch sight of them as well, Gohan proudly looking at the snowman he made in the image of the android while Peppa starts prepping snowballs. Suno sighs out softly. “Eighter managed to leave the Red Ribbon Army on his own, thanks to him meeting Goku. I guess... Gero has been working to prevent something like that happening again.” She sinks back a bit, staring down into her mostly empty cup of cocoa. “...Um. When 19‘s all fixed... you think Eighter could come along with you to try and meet her? They are kinda siblings, in a way...”>A. Great idea, Suno! Actually been thinking on that myself>B. Well, only if he’s up for it. Don’t really know how 19 would react with him...>C. Maybe when 19‘s okay with it, should give her some time to adjust>D. Something else?
>>2114173Aw, don't stress yourself too much. I am glad your here tho.>>2114176>A. Great idea, Suno! Actually been thinking on that myselfWe should bring Flappe too. Wouldn't he know Gero's work better then any of us?
>>2114176>A. Great idea, Suno! Actually been thinking on that myself
>>2114176>>A. Great idea, Suno! Actually been thinking on that myself
Rolled 13, 7, 14, 10, 10 = 54 (5d20)>>2114176You nod. “That’s a great idea, Suno! Been thinking on that myself, actually.”“Ah, glad to hear. I bet Eighter will be thrilled by that.” she states with a pleasant smile. She spots Peppa floating around, tossing some of her snowballs at Eighter, laughing. Eighter launches a snowball half her size at her, Peppa dodging it easily, turning around and about to taunt him, only for Gohan to get her, hiding behind the snowman he made. “Gohan and Peppa really do seem to be doing well.”“Mhmm. Ah, it feels like they’re growing up so fast... you know they’ve stopped calling me ‘momma’ and ‘mommy’ and now just call me ‘mom?’”She giggles softly. “You have been training them quite a bit, huh?”“Goku and I started training them a while back, but only giving them as much as they could handle. And... well, turns out they can handle a lot already. Peppa’s already stronger than her dad, and Gohan’s about even with him.”“Wow! Has that... changed their behavior all that much?” Suno asks hesitantly.“Wondering about your own potential kid, huh?” you ask in return, smiling slyly.Suno blushes. “I mean... I am not really fighter like you guys.”“Well, to answer your question, no, not really. They’re still about the same as they were before. More confident, definitely. Though I’ve seen with my own eyes what a kid like yours might end up as. Three of them, technically. One’s here right now, actually, helping Bulma with 19. And she is a very sweet, very kind young woman. Her mom raised her up well. And believe me, I bet you’d be a great mom too.”She rubs the back of her neck bashfully. “Maple...”>A. ...Thought about names, or gonna leave those up to Raditz?>B. Well, as lovely as this chat’s been, we still have something to do>C. Something else?
>>2114254Technically we'll be sisters! Just like Chi-chi! We can go shopping together, do each other's hair, talk about all the latest gossip....>C. Tell her about the Destron Machines"If you spot anything spewing out gas, don't get near it and contact us immediately."Maybe show her with telepathy?
>>2114275This seems like a good, and safe idea to tell her.
>>2114275Supporting, but let's give her a Scouter. One with a cute design or at least in her favorite color.
>>2114285...We haven't given Suno a scouter yet?I figured that's the first gift we give everyone...
>>2114289I... Genuinely can't recall. But we should do that anyway.
>>2114301Well, I'm fine with it....ooh we could make the symbol the nimbus cloud! Make it her company symbol even!
>>2114305>>2114301>>2114289We should give her a recipe book for Saiyans.We have one of those right? I mean, we talked with Goku's mom and shit.
>>2114336Also a good idea!
>>2114336We did indeed get a meat recipe from her.We also have Grandpa Gohan's rice meal that Goku enjoys. Maybe they'd like that too?
>>2114347It'd be funny if Grandpa Gohan's rice recipe was just accidentally tailor made for Saiyans.
>>2114364We should make a cook book alongside a ki book...Hell, we should come up with a series of books to get published. A travel guide of Earth for both food and training for aliens, or for people on the planet who don't know much about the world...
Rolled 14, 6, 19, 14, 15 = 68 (5d20)>>2114254“...You know, we’ll technically be sisters-in-law, when Raditz is ready.” you point out. “Heh, just like Chi-chi and I are now.”“Ah, guess that’s true.”“Ah, we could go shopping together, have plenty more fun chats like this, maybe a bit of gossip...”Suno raises an eyebrow at you. “You never really seemed like the gossiping type, Maple. You’ve been... a bit more direct.”You giggle. “Guilty as charged.”Suno looks out the window again, Gohan and Peppa now successfully crafting themselves little snow forts as they get into a snowball fight. “Hope everything works out...”“Ah, actually, if you think you’re able... Suno, something you need to know. My brother and I both realized that there might be certain devices we need to watch out for. If you see anything nearby that’s spewing out gasses, get away as quickly as you can and contact us.”She gives you a confused look. “...I mean that sort of goes without saying, but, why? And what do you mean ‘gasses’?”“Dr. Raichi might be trying to spread a certain type of poison across the Earth. I think you recall the Black Water Mist thing a few years ago, right?”Suno sinks back. “More than I want to recall of it. Okay, sure, but contact how?”“What’s your favorite color?” you ask.She scratches the top of her head. “R-red?”You materialize her a Scouter, red screen and a symbol of the Nimbus on the side. “Honestly surprised I never gave you one of these before. Scouter, will be able to keep you in contact with us easily. Also might help you pick up on these things if they’re nearby.”“Ah, of course... heh, thank you, Maple.” She takes the Scouter, fitting it on.There’s a loud thud against the side of Suno’s house, followed by your daughter shouting “SORRY MOM! SORRY MISS SUNO! I MISSED!”The two of you look outside, a large chunk of snow sliding down the side of the house, Peppa prepping another one, this one the size of Eighter.>A. I should probably head out there>B. Eh, she’s fine, wanna chat with Suno some more>C. Check with Raditz and Goku, see how they’re handling things>D. Something else?
>>2114604>A.'Never aim at the ground or toward civilians Peppa.'>C.Wanna feel weird? Let's go watch both our partners merge into one person.>D. But make sure to let her know we want to do this again. Maybe we can help her with deliveries sometime. Or even teach her how to fly/ki sense so crashes don't happen again...
>>2114604>>A. I should probably head out there
Rolled 18, 10, 18, 1, 17 = 64 (5d20)>>2114604You shake your head. “I should head out there, before she hits a window.”“I would appreciate that.” Suno tells you, placing her mug down.You look back to her and smile. “Still, it was nice chatting, Suno. We really should do this again some time. Plus I could help with your deliveries, if you needed some.”“Heh, it has been nice, but don’t feel like you’re obligated to that. Still, thank you, Maple.”You give a stretch. “Well, gotta check on Goku and Raditz, too. See how they’re doing, if they’re ready for this.”“Ready for what, exactly?” Suno asks.You start to walk out. “Let’s just say Goku and Raditz are about to join forces in a very... literal sense.”The two of you head out, and you see Peppa bring the giant snowball above her head. Aaaand it’s the size of Suno’s house. “Sweetie, not at the ground or at civilians! You know that!”She starts to sink back down. “Aww... sorry mo-” Gohan pelts her in the face with a snowball, causing her to lose the grip on the large one she’s holding, the snow falling on her. Your daughter seems to drill her way out of it, popping out at the top. “That was a cheap shot, Gohan.” she grumbles at her brother.“Can’t let your guard down, sis.” Gohan tells her in return, hiding behind his fort again.You look up in the sky, spotting Goku and Raditz heading back down. When they land, Goku asks his brother. “Feel like that was enough of a warmup?”“More than enough, brother.”>A. So, think your fusion would wanna spar with a few Tuffles, boys?>B. Power up. You’ll see how well you can fare on your own, kids can play some more>C. Just watch, see what they’ll be going to try first>D. Something else?

>>2114870https://youtu.be/sybN4C5shiQGoku and Raditz look to each other. “Time to give it a real try. Ready?”He nods, the two of them standing side by side, matching their power. Suno looks on curiously as Gohan and Peppa watch. They bring their arms out, Raditz completely focused, as they start the steps. “Fuuuuu...”They move together, a smile appearing on your lips as Gohan and Peppa move closer to you, Suno a little confused.“-SION!”Arms properly extended, legs turned correctly, it’s time!“HAAAAA!”A brilliant glow engulfs the area, Suno shielding her eyes. The glow slowly disappears, and you get a good look at this resulting fusion. He’s got Goku’s face, but Raditz’s long hair, and a single lock drooping down his face, as he stands proudly in the familiar fusion garb, tail wrapping around his waist.“Raditz and Kakarot, huh? Guess that makes me... Rakarot.” the fused form of the brothers declares.Suno is speechless. “That... wow, they can... do that?”“Not exactly an easy technique, but looks like you monkey boys have it down pretty solidly.” You take a fighting stance, nodding for Gohan and Peppa to come closer. “How’d you like to test this strength against a few Tuffles?”He raises his hand, offering for you to come at him. “Heh, might as well see what this body can do.”>A. Okay, full power, kids! Let’s give ‘em everything we’ve got!>B. Stick in base, for now, test the waters>C. Wait for him to make his first move, then attack>D. Something else?
>>2115064>B. >C.>DCan we pull a Dragon Ball Super? Test every form out we have to see what he can take and to his overall power?Start of with testing our base form. Raioken, and Kaioken separately, then together. Then Raio-ten, then both of those together. Maybe by going through every step, we can see what Videl and Pantea saw in their fusion?

You stand your ground as Gohan and Peppa launch at him. The two kids attempt to kick him in the gut, but Rakarot catches both of their legs, stopping them cold. “Nice try, kids, but you can’t let your attacks be THAT telegraphed.” He tosses them into the air, dashing at you, blasting away snow as he moves at high speed. You see him coming, try to block, but he lands a strong kick, knocking you several meters away.You flip and land, but he’s already on you, faster than you were expecting. He’s way stronger than either Raditz or Goku, even in base. You shout out “Raio-ken!” to try and move away, your increased speed giving you an advantage... initially. You dodge a chop aimed for your side, but he then catches your heel with his tail, tossing you to the ground. You bounce, but use your increased speed to try and move away from his incoming attack.Only one problem. Even with the Raio-ken, he’s faster than you. You shout out next, “Kaio-ken!” and meet his next blow head on, blocking his fist. Though you’re caught by surprise as he pulls his arm back, and starts unleashing a flurry of blows. Even with the Raio-ken and Kaio-ken working together, you’re on the defensive. Thinking quickly, you start moving back, jerking your body out of his reach with your telekinesis as you hit him in the face with a surprise Clothes Beam.Gohan and Peppa finally jump back in, their hair spiked up, golden auras blazing around them as they’ve transformed. The fused brothers manage to dodge them, allowing you a chance to catch your breath. You power up further, shouting out, “RAIO-TEN!” and join the kids as they face him.“Heh, moves are nice, kids, but you still have a ways to go to make up for the difference in skill.” he tells Gohan and Peppa. “And Maple, you’re doing good, but is it good enough? HRRAH!” Rakarot transforms as well, his power surging past your own. Even the kids can’t match up to that strength. You stay back and let the kids launch at him, readying your Spirit Bits to take shots at him.Gohan and Peppa can barely keep up, the two of them alternating between trying to attack his upper body and lower body, but Rakarot’s able to hold his own, not even countering them as they attack, instead focusing on teaching them where to attack. Even your Spirit Bits do little to really damage him, as he’s able to either deflect their blasts or dodge them with ease.With the Spirit Bits all used up, you power up further, adding the Kaio-ken to your strength with a roar of “Times... SIX!” You launch yourself at the fused Saiyan, attempting the Izumi Combo, and then the Jan Ken as Gohan and Peppa back up, charging up a Geist Magnum each.(cont.)
Rolled 1, 19, 1, 18, 5 = 44 (5d20)>>2115441Rakarot crosses his arms and then flings you all away with an explosive wave. You finally form up a Phoenix Tear, letting it trail away from you as you try again to attack him. Gohan and Peppa power up further, ascending past Super Saiyan and working together to attack him, finally starting to tip the scale in your favor. But, while the kids now have a power advantage, it’s not enough to completely eclipse him, and certainly not enough to make up for his far greater skill. He manages to get behind Gohan and Peppa, striking them both in the back and forcing them to the ground.“Hey Maple, watch this!” he shouts out, dodging your Phantom Kick and charging Ki in his hand. He spins around and hits you with it, palm-striking the Ki into your chest hard enough that it takes the wind out of you and sends you flying back. Thankfully, the Phoenix Tear gets its first real test run, and you direct it to hit you as you fall back, healing up. You land a short distance away, on your feet, recovered, but your body starting to feel the strain.You take a moment to think, watching as he holds off the kids once more. Agh... you’re definitely not close to reaching whatever Videl’s been trying to achieve.>A. Keep pushing! Gotta try harder!>B.

>>2115446https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OLBrZPywvM8You clench your fists. You need to push harder. But it’s not just gaining strength like Gohan and Peppa did. You take a deep breath and work to clear your mind, calming yourself. You stand and try to channel your Ki through your body better. Focus. Remember each step along the Path.Gohan and Peppa start to gain the upper hand once again, landing some solid blows against the fused Saiyan. But it’s not enough to put him down, not just yet. He knocks the kids away again, firing two beams of energy upwards and forcing them to block. Okay... here it is, you’ve got one chance!You feel a brief but tremendous surge of power course through your body as you chant out “Samma Samadhi!” and jolt towards Rakarot. Faster... stronger... you’ve got ‘em! You smash your fist into his jaw, catching him by surprise and knocking him into the air. Gohan and Peppa blast back downwards at him, slamming their fists into his gut as he’s knocked into the air by you. He’s able to knock Gohan off him, but his added strength was just enough to help Peppa finish bringing him to the ground, creating a crater that blasts snow upwards.You take a moment to catch your breath again. You finally got to see just how much that ability can help you. And you have to admit, it’s an impressive boost. Gohan heads back to your side, Peppa leaping away from the fused fighter to do the same, the three of you ready to keep going. You then hear... laughter?Rakarot’s echoing voice lets out an uproarious laugh from the crater he’s in. “That was great! Hah, even with Fusion, you two continue to impress us.” He brushes himself off, walking out. “And Maple, that was a nice hit.” he compliments, rubbing his jaw. “Guess that’s a lesson to take to heart. Can’t let my guard down, especially against you.”You grin cheekily at him. “Heh, just doin’ what I do best.”“My comments still stand though, Gohan, Peppa, it’s not enough to rely just on strength. Gotta use those Saiyan instincts and those Tuffle minds if you want to bring out your full potential.” He pats the kids on the head. “But that was a good start.”“Thanks da- ...unc- ...um...” Gohan scratches the top of his head. “...Thank you very much.”“Either one’s fine, kiddo.” Rakarot comments. He notices Peppa looking off in the distance, snifing the air. “What’s up? You sense something?”“Duncle Rakarot...” She starts. Also hah, duncle? Guess it’s technically correct. She sniffs the air again. “...Did somebody poot?”>DRAGON BALL TUFFLE QUEST Z #73... Paused.>Twitter account is @KatoQm, will have status updates there>Got some questions for the QM? Characters?

>>2115617>Did somebody poot?
>>2115617Oh crap. It's time already? Well, good times Kato, thanks for running.
Will it be possible to salvage the destron machines and convert them into anti-destron machines? Or at least snag their energy shields?
>>2116271Wouldn't expect the former since this is kind of too short a period to reverse engineer enemy weaponry given previous track record. As for the later, okay, that part could possibly be salvaged and repaired, which would likely be easier.

Rakarot crosses his arms, trying to sense out for anything odd. “Hmm... there is a strange feeling in the air.”You can feel it too... agh, but where is it coming from? You clench your teeth. This is really it, huh? But... is it just starting, or have they been sneaking things on Earth without anyone really noticing until now?>A. Get everyone together, need to plan this out>B.

Do you think Ghost Dad actually let his people die so that Hatchiyak would be stronger?>Dr. Lychee is unable to complete his machine in time to stop the Saiyan advance; instead, he allows Hatchiyack to absorb the hatred and negative energy of the fallen Tuffles before jettisoning it into outer space.I think the old man really just blames himself for not being fast enough. Kinda sad really. No wonder he won't move on.
>>2120315>C. Try to hone your foresight on what you saw before, see if you can match it
>>2120315You make sure your Scouter is searching for any strange energy signatures as you focus your foresight on the strange, eerie presence in the air, breathing out “Samma Ditthi.” A low beeping picks up something’s Ki as you get the image of......Wait what? Is that... Garlic Jr? You open your eyes. “That way, outskirts of the village, by the forested area at the foot of the mountain over there.” you point, Scouter still beeping. This... is not Garlic Jr’s Power Level. Not what you remember at least. “Suno, Eighter, you might wanna stay here.”The redheaded woman nods, Rakarot and the kids standing beside you. “So, find it?”You nod. “And looks like it has somebody trying to guard it. And what a surprise, it’s our old buddy Garlic Jr.”You all jet towards him, spotting a machine spewing a strange black gas into- wait. You recognize this feeling... it’s just like when you and Acer trained with Teacher. Yeah, it’s definitely Destron Gas.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pm1L_BRK_Gw Your Scouter finally gives you a reading on the imp. 1 million... and he hasn’t transformed yet. Garlic Jr. glares at you all, and you realize he’s not alone. Other Makyan warriors stand beside him. “It’s been a long, long time, Maple Mahogany and Son... Goku?” Garlic looks at the fused Saiyan, confused. “What’s with the getup? And what did you do to your hair? Bah, no matter. I have waited a long, long time for this. And don’t think you will be so lucky this time!”Peppa tilts her head at him. “...Mom, is that Pilaf’s evil twin brother?” she asks you.Garlic’s eye twitches. “You. Oh, I know some folks here who remember you. Don’t you, boys?”Some of the Makyans near him nod. “Those were some of the brats who helped free that dumb bitch up on the Lookout. We’ll have to show them a lesson in manners this time.”Gohan whispers to his sister, “Do you remember these guys? No?”“Heh, sorry guys, but we’re not really in the mood to play around right now. How about you take a hike and let us see that machine over there?” Rakarot asks.“Give us your best shot.” Garlic Jr. taunts.The fused Saiyan takes aim at it, then tries to fire a Ki blast. “SATURDAY CRA-ash?” What little energy charged up in his palm dissipates. “...What the?”The Makyans begin laughing at him.>A. Your turn! Geist Magnum!>B. Don’t try any Ki attacks, just smash ‘em!>C. You were safer in Hell, Garlic. Dr. Raichi fill your head with delusions of revenge?>D. Something else?

>>2120602This. Deck 'em in the schnozx!
>>2120596Flashback!>"PREPARE TO ENTER... THE -DEAD ZONE!-""KAIO-KEN! TIMES... FOUR!" You take aim with your attack, Garlic and Goku finally noticing you. You smile. "Geist. Magnum." The stunned expression on Garlic Jr.'s face changes into a genuine stun throughout his body. For added measure, you flip him off. Then you direct your Spirit Bits around Goku, the Denjin Kamehameha starting to charge in your palms. He looks at you with... honestly the warmest, happiest smile you've seen yet, and then, he pulls his hands back. "Kaaaaa..."You fly up next to him and nod, pulling your hands back as well. Acer and Chi-chi fly towards you both, doing the same, as Chuu Lee moves to the other side, her Shinku Kamehameha charging up, as Krillin, Lapis, and Lazuli getting next to her. Launch arrives next, doing the same as everyone else. Simultaneously, you all start the next syllable. "Meeeee..."Tao, Tien, and Chiaotzu take a position behind you, and right as it seems like Garlic might break free from the stun, the pale boy lets out a shout of "Toketsu Dodonpa!" A blue beam fires from his fingers, hitting Garlic and apparently keeping the stun up, along with what seems to be frost forming around him."Haaaaaa..."Chiaotzu nods at you and smiles. He then starts charging a more normal attack, along with Tien and Tao. King Chappa flies up as well, prepping what seem to be eight Ki attacks."MEEEEEEEEE..."Garlic seems to try to power up an eye beam... only for another, familiar beam to strike him, the energy vanishing. The figure of Piccolo appears. He... just used that MP Buster technique on Garlic? Well... thanks! OKAY, THIS IS IT!"HAAAAAAAAA!"You and Goku fling your hands forward, palms touching as the combined Denjin and Super Kamehamehas fly through your Spirit Bit amplifier gate. Your brother and Chi-chi fire theirs together, one with added Flame. Your student fires hers, the screeching sound of it blaring through the area, as Krillin, Lapis, Lazuli, and Launch blast theirs forward. A powerful barrage of Dodonpa beams strike at Garlic as well, and King Chappa's attacks manage to connect.The last thing you hear from Garlic Jr. are the words,Hey Garlic Jr. >"Aw, crapbaskets.">Moves in the order that took out Garlic Jr.(SSJ)Kaioken x 4Geist MagnumDenjin Kamehameha + Shinku Kamehameha, + Super Kamehamehas (Maple's, Chuu Lee's, Goku's Krillin, Lapis, Lazuli, Launch, Goku, Acer's, Chi-chi)Chiaotzu's Toketsu Dodonpa Tao and Tien's dodonpasPiccolo's Mp BusterKing Chappa's move+ all in an amplifier Gate
>>2120626But can Ki attacks work against them right now?
>>2120654Maybe not, but I believe they are specifically weak to the moves that killed them.I don't exactly remember how the other Makyans were killed though.Sama Vaca would probably help in any case.
Rolled 13, 18, 17, 1, 7 = 56 (5d20)>>2120596You crack your knuckles. “You should have stayed in Hell, Garlic. Tell me, did Dr. Raichi fill your head with delusions of revenge?”“These are no mere delusions.” he declares, powering up, bulking up as well. “THUS BEGINS YOUR DOOM, MAPLE MAHOGANY!”“Don’t try Ki attacks! Just smash ‘em down!” you shout out, dodging him with ease. Even with this boost in strength, if you’re taking the fight seriously, he’s got no chance of doing any real damage. You leap back, clenching your fist. You then dash at him, smashing your fist hard into his gut. Hard enough, in fact, to punch RIGHT through him, landing a few meters away from the Destron Gas Machine.You start to approach as Rakarot and the kids fend off the other Makyans with ease. You poke a finger at it... agh. Yep, barrier. Well, you have experience getting through these! And a one and a two and a-“OH NO YOU DON’T!” Garlic growls at you, grabbing your arm. “You’re not getting away from me that easily!”You spot Peppa... ignoring your order and starting to charge a Kamehameha.>A.

Rolled 11, 15, 1, 8, 6 = 41 (5d20)>>2120696You stand your ground as you feel Garlic Jr. try to tug you away from the machine, shouting out “Samma Vaca!” at him. You... feel his power drop. Not as much as a normal Demon’s, but it still decreases quite a bit.“Haaa... meeee... HAAA!” Peppa shouts out, bringing her hands forward and... the beam blasts out, taking out one of the Makyans, a horned, bull-like one. Her Ki attack’s power wasn’t diminished in the slightest.Garlic looks back at her. “...That’s not supposed to happe-AGH!”You raise your arm and fling Garlic at the barrier, a loud, dull sound that nearly triggers your punching reflex as he bounces off it, though the barrier clearly can’t take a few more of those. You do just that, smashing Garlic into the barrier again and again.Rakarot attempts to fire another Ki blast at one of the Makyans after seeing Peppa’s successful Kamehameha, but just like before, it dissipates before he can launch it. Frustrated, he powers up and opts for just knocking down as many of them as he can.You finally break through the barrier through blunt-forcing it with Garlic Jr., with one last swing bringing him crashing down on the machine. It cracks and crackles meekly as it’s broken, Garlic laying upside down on top of it, dazed.>A. Kamehameha!>B. Wanna start talking now, Garlic?>C. Peppa, how’d you know that would work?>D.

When did Dr. Raichi begin putting these on Earth?”Garlic slaps his face, Rakarot and Peppa finishing up knocking the remaining Makyans out... their bodies becoming a dark mist. One smaller Makyan tries to jump you, but Gohan strikes it with his Geist Magnum, knocking it down. Garlic Jr. glares at you, but then smirks. “Long enough that I can say you’re too late. Even if you vanquish me here, my hatred will linger. All of our hatred will carry on. You think he didn’t know about Majin Ozotto?”“So that’s when it started?” you ask.“Hahahaha! Enjoyed this world’s last few days, Maple Mahogany? Because this isn’t the only one out there. You can’t find them all in time to save this planet.”You glare down at him. “How many?”“Dozens. No, wait, maybe HUNDREDS now. Ahahahahaha! This world will be covered in darkness soon enough. I’ll admit I don’t know how your brats managed to work through its effects, but they’re not enough.” Garlic backs away from you with a short Explosive Wave, then raises his hands to the sky. A dark vortex appears, starting to suck everything in. “Too bad you won’t get a chance to see it all happen! BEHOLD, THE DEAD Z-!”“-MEHAAAA!” Peppa shouts out, knocking him off his feet.You clasp your hands together and follow through with her, shouting out, “Kamehame... HAAA!”The two beams blast Garlic Jr. away, shattering the Dead Zone portal. Well, that could’ve gotten nasty. Rakarot pats the girl on the head. “Hundreds, huh?”“Not going to be easy finding them all... agh, and Dr. Raichi might have more of these people out there. I doubt Garlic was anywhere near the strongest...”He then looks down at you curiously. “Say, Maple... how can you and the kids use Ki attacks? We tried a few times now, and none of them worked.”You sigh out softly. “I have an idea... and I’m not sure I’ll like the answer...”>DRAGON BALL TUFFLE QUEST Z #73...

Well, it’s smashed pretty good, but parts of it might still be salvageable. Suno and Eighter arrive once the coast is clear, the redheaded woman looking at the broken machine. “Guess I won’t need to call you about the one here, huh?”You shake your head. “Wouldn’t be so sure. Garlic Jr. said there are hundres more out there. Suno, you need to stay safe, but stay on alert if you spot any more of these things nearby.”“Sure... what do they do, anyway?” she asks hesitantly.You cross your arms. “They spit out a substance called Destron Gas... it’s what allowed Garlic Jr. and his cronies to return, but... agh, there’s something strange. Our monkey boy’s Ki attacks weren’t working, but mine, Peppa’s, and Gohan’s were...” “Yeah, what IS up with that?” Rakarot questions, scratching head.“Well... while the kids are half-Saiyan, they’re also half-Tuffle.

Rolled 19, 2, 17, 15, 9 = 62 (5d20)>>2122441Then you haven't been paying attention.>>2122102You take some time to think. Okay, hundreds of Destron Gas machines across the planet, and you’ve gotten... two of them located, one down. The Land of Ice up north has one, and you had a vision of Chuu Lee facing something up there. If Tuffles are immune to this, that means Acer and Izumi are capable of using their Ki. Hrmn... well, somebody has to have spotted a few by now. Okay, first thing’s first: “Suno, Eighter, can you bring the remains of this machine to Dr. Frappe? I’ll get Bulma looking at this too, we can probably find another one soon, but you’re closest and we need to get started on this.”The two of them nod. “Sure thing, Maple. What’ll you be doing?”“Monkey boys, kids, we should get going to Capsule Corp after we check with Trip...” You telepathically try to contact her. ‘It’s time. Dr. Raichi’s machines are here.’Her reply isn’t encouraging. ‘They have only activated in the last hour, but this... this feeling... they’re spreading the gas across the Earth. I’m counting at least 40... no, even more than that. If it isn’t stopped soon, it will cause all life on this planet to wither away and die. It... it is almost as if the gas is draining the energy away from life itself.’‘It’s different... way different from when Acer and I encountered it. We’ll get to work, start giving us locations soon.’ You have everyone grab on to you, locking on to Yamcha’s Ki at Capsule Corp and teleporting there. But when you arrive...“HRRAAH!” Bra shouts out, slicing a green monster with wild, purple hair and horns in two.“Nice work there, girlie!” Jeice shouts out, dodging another of them. “Okay, you asked for it! CRUSHER... BA-ll?” He tries to fling a Ki blast at it, but just like with Rakarot, it disappears. The monster lunges at him again, Yamcha knocking it aside.“Agh, just what is going on?” Yamcha asks aloud.“Damn you Earthlings! And double damn you, Saiyan!” the monster roars.You spot a blue one nearby, beaten, and another corpse of the green one. Jeice moves to get behind him, causing the monster to take a swing, Yamcha kicking it in the back of the head as Bra finishes it off with an upward slash. Jeice sits down, breathing heavily. “B-bloody... bastard... ha... hhaaah... well, that... that was quite the workout. No... no wonder you Earthlings are... haa... so tough.”“Believe me, it’s no normal occurrance.” Yamcha comments, finally looking back to your group. “I take it we have an idea on what’s going on?”(cont.)
>>2122746https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OQV36Uqt7zwYou nod. “We do... come on inside.” You finally get a moment to check in with everyone, Bulma and her dad in the lab, starting to analyze the Destron Gas as you telepathically check in with everyone and explaining the situation. And looks like nearly everyone got attacked by something.Tien, Launch, and the rest of the Crane School had to fight some of King Piccolo’s demons in Mifan. Acer, Chi-chi, and Izumi were ambushed by some of Freeza’s henchmen near the Ox King’s village, while Vegeta and Nappa faced some of Cold’s in a northern wasteland. Krillin, Lapis, and Lazuli spotted an odd pink monster on a volcanic island, apparently filling it with... landmines... guarding a barriered machine. Chuu Lee, Pantea, Videl, and Kuriza all faced a group of demons that the girls recognizes, apparently some from the Black Water Mist incident. Even Roshi seems to have chased off some Red Ribbon soldiers trying to get revenge on him.Of those groups, only four more Destron Machines were destroyed. And that’s not nearly enough to really make a difference... nor is it enough to bring back your allies’ ability to use their Ki attacks. Even worse, Lapis, Krillin, and Chuu Lee can’t focus their Instant Transmission. Which leaves everyone but you and the rest of the Tuffles with limited options. And as the cherry on top... ‘70 hours.’ Trip tells you. ‘That’s how long it will take for the Earth to be rendered inhospitable at this rate.’‘Agh, then time is not on our side.’ Acer grumbles. ‘Trip, just how many machines are there? Do you have a solid number?’‘I do now.’ she starts grimly. ‘There were 400 Destron Gas machines spread across the planet when this started. You all have taken down... five.’You grit your teeth. “395 machines left, with who knows how many other phantoms and monsters are out there...”“With Cell, King Cold, Cooler, and Freeza among them...” Bra comments lowly.“And possibly Ozotto.” Bulma points out.Dr. Briefs turns his chair around. “Then there is no time to lose. I will get started on something to counteract the gas. Sweetie, you can finish the robot girl. More hands means we will get done quicker.”>A. Then we’ll cover as much ground as we can, but everyone needs to stay in contact>B. We can’t affort to split up with the bigger threats out there, waiting to jump us. Popo, can you help ferry people around? It might take longer, but it’ll be safer>C. Bulma, Dr. Briefs, I can help you work on 19 or a countermeasure! I might be able to recall some things... Acer, you wanna join in too?>D. I’m heading out there, I’m one of the few of us that can still use Ki. Trip, where would be a good location for me to head to?>E. Something else?
>>2122754>Hey, how big a space can one of your capsules have in it? Like say, could we store a planet in one?
>>2122754>395Shit. Shit SHIT SHIT.>B.Okay so until we've got more of them taken care of, we need people to be ready for anything.>D.But keep in contact with Dr. Briefs, in case he has any questions.
>>2123003Yeah sure, backing.
If anyone fuses with a tuffle I expect the final form to have no trouble using ki either. Not that there's a lot of opportunities for that but we should keep it in mind.
>>2123307Very good point.>>2122754You run your fingers through your hair in slight frustration, thinking over what would be the best course of action. “Agh... okay, we can’t risk Dr. Raichi getting the drop on us while we’ve only got five people that can use their Ki attacks, so we should stick together as best we can. Though... hrmn... where to start?”“...Mom, Duncle, I’m gonna go help Videl and Ms. Chuu Lee.” Peppa comments. “I’ll stick close with them and I’ll pay attention to whatever Ms. Chuu Lee says, promise!” your daughter declares, giving you... ah damn it. Not the Tuffle eyes.Rakarot grins at her enthusiasm. “Heh, well somebody’s ready to get to work.”Gohan crosses his arms. “I’ll stick with you, mom.”Peppa gives him a surprised look. “You sure, Gohan? You don’t wanna come with me to help Pantea too?”He nods. “Pantea can take care of herself, I know that for sure. And she’d probably be able to come up with some good plans with either of us around. But I think I should stick with mom.”(cont.)
>>2123422You sigh out lowly. Outnumbered on this one, you figure. And you can’t really spend any more time waiting it out. “Okay. Mr. Popo, can you help ferry some teams around the world? At least get them to some locations where the machines are?” you ask.‘That I can, Maple. I suspect you will be using Instant Transmission as well?’“Just point us in the right direction. Monkey boys, how about it?” you ask Rakarot and Gohan.The fused Saiyan nods. “Let’s put this power to use while we still have the time.”You clap your hands together. “Okay! Bulma, Dr. Briefs! Acer and I will be able to keep in contact via Scouter, if you have any questions. We might be able to help a bit while we’re out there.”Jeice rubs his shoulder. “I guess us Ginyus should group up somewhere. Captain’s still in that Time Chamber, so we need to keep up the morale.”“How about here?” Yamcha asks. “Capsule Corp. could use some eyes keeping watch over it. You rest up and we’ll help you reunite with Ginyu when it’s time.”The red alien nods. “Not a bad idea, mate. We can keep your pretty lady and her pop safe while you go out there and get rid of this nasty stuff.”“So, you going to help Vegeta, Bra?” he asks next.She thinks for a moment. “...I’ll stick with you, actually. You’re going to need some backup when you’re out there, and I don’t know if Vegeta really needs my help.”“Heh, thanks. Okay, we’re ready.”You tap your fingers to your forehead. “Trip, just tell us where.”‘Hmm... there is activity I am sensing in Diablo Desert and Orange Star City.’“Okay, then we’ll be there. Let’s save the world, everyone!”Bulma looks up and smiles. “Take care out there, guys. Counting on you.”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uDs8YgH7gTg>DRAGON BALL TUFFLE QUEST Z #73 END.>Twitter account is @KatoQm, will have status updates there>Got some questions for the QM? Characters?

I’ll be around for a bit for some questions and such. Did y’all have fun?
>>2123428Great times were had, Kato. Thanks for running.Damn though, that's a lot of machines to destroy.
>>2123505I doubt it'd work, but striking the planet with a massive EMP to take them all out would be nice.
>>2123683I feel like with our electricity magic, Gero, Raichi and possibly even Myuu all have EMP dampeners or something.
>>2122102Nigga, you know I was referencing the machines and not the ghosts themselves, he doesn't have a ghost ship or ghost computers
>>2123817>ghost ship or ghost computersThis is going to happen now.Planet Outa's space pirates are going to turn out to be ghosts and Dr. Gero's computer's gonna to turn out to be a ghost computer now too.
>>2123505Glad to hear, anon! And yep. You can probably see why Ozotto was restored so quickly in the Future.>>2123683>>2123727Raichi knows about your abilities. The barriers would first need to be lowered for an EMP to have any effect on them, and the pulse would need to be exceptionally strong in order to take out more than just a handful. They do have dampeners, but one could hypothetically knock a few out with a strong enough EMP. It'd be easier to smash them.>>2123817His computer systems are quite a bit more sophisticated than what you'd be able to develop a virus for on the fly. You'd need quite a bit of time to figure it out. Time you don't have.>>2124666Hah. We'll see.
