With you and Buula sent into a gap between dimensions, you encounter the mysterious Sugoro and are challenged to a game to leave the realm you ended up in, Sugoroku Space. After uncovering the cheating father and son duo, you and Buula bust them out of there as the realm collapses, arriving on Planet Kuhn. You then stopped the villainous plan of the restored Turles and his Neo Crusher Corps thanks to the Time Patrol and a fighter trained by South Kai, but what villainous plots does Dr. Raichi still have in store?
>>2288842Pan happily devours her ice cream, Buula holding hers with one of her hair... tentacle things as you finish yours up. “Well, with this out of the way, we’ll still need to track down where Towa and Mira are planning to show up next... if they haven’t changed plans drastically already.”“So not even your boss knows where they might be?” you ask the pink lady.Buula nods. “Even if she did, she might not have the resources to stop them if not for us.” She then opens her mouth wide and eats the rest of her ice cream, cone and all, in one bite, letting out an almost uncharacteristic, gleeful, girly little squee-ing noise. She nearly immediately goes back to her more serious tone. “A-anyway, what will you be doing, Maple? I am sure you’re still needed back on Earth, but... if Raichi’s out here with his own plans, I couldn’t blame you for wanting to try and uncover them.”“You DO have your own kids you need to worry about.” Pan notes, glancing at you. “I bet they’re worried sick.”>A. I do need to be getting home...>B. If Raichi has more plans out here, they’ll need to be stopped before they can reach Earth>C. First thing’s first. Let’s get you a new outfit, Pan!>D. Something else?
Wooh!>>2288853>B. If Raichi has more plans out here, they’ll need to be stopped before they can reach Earth>C. First thing’s first. Let’s get you a new outfit, Pan!>D. Something else?These fish pirate men. We should talk to them, they might know more. They came with the Neo Crusher Corps so Raichi must have set up something there.
>>2288861Also don't forget that orb we spotted with the person inside...
>>2288861Supporting.I need something to cheer me up.
>>2289025Aw, what's wrong Moon?
>>2289030Subway lady I've known since I was five passed away, been pretty bummed about it. I installed her internet and set up her tv and anything else she needed a lot.Just hoping that beating up Turles will cheer me up.
>>2289033You have my condolences.And beating up on Ghost Turles always cheers me up.
>>2288853You pat Pan on the head. “If Raichi still has plans set in motion out here, they need to be stopped before they reach Earth. If I ignore it now, it’ll only make things worse in the long run... as much as I want to see them again, I know my kids are tough. And I need to do this for them.”Pan has a quizzical look on her face, not quite sure what to say. She seems like she wants to protest to that, but can’t find the words to express how she feels. Still, she does add a comment to your declaration. “...When grandpa nearly died, everything seemed so hopeless. Baby had gained control of nearly everyone...”“You still pushed on though. You and your other grandfather, and... him.” Buula comments to her.“True...” Pan agrees with a smile.You scratch your head. “Huh, Baby... that sounds- wait, THAT Baby? The one made from the Tuffle King, the one Dr. Raichi teamed up with in my Gohan’s future?”“The very same.” Buula comments. “He’d taken over Vegeta and nearly the whole Earth, but Goku managed to stop him in the end. Though... like a moron, he used the Black Star Dragon Balls on Earth to bring back Planet Vegeta, resulting in the Earth’s destruction not too long after. Thankfully the Namekian Dragon Balls could bring it back.”You hang your head. “Ugh. So he’s a relentless egomaniac in addition to everything else.”“There were billboards with his face on them.” Pan notes. “He was the worst.”“Guess it’s just one more mistake my people made in their last days...” you say with a sigh.“H-hey! It’s not your fault!”“We should get going.” Buula comments. “What are you planning to do, Maple?”“Hmm... first we should question those fish people that were part of the Neo Crusher Corps. Oh, and I recall seeing what seemed to be a small person trapped in one of those crystal balls!” You rub your chin, thinking for a moment. “...Buuuut before that, Pan! Step-Granny Maple has some outfits for you!~”She scoots away, forcing a smile. “Th-thanks, but I like this one quite a bit...”>A. Fiiiine, we’ll do it later, gotta start questioning the Neo Crusher Corps anyway...>B. Come now, how about a proper gi, like your grandpa’s?>C. Maybe something more modest but similar to what she’s wearing. Something cool!>D. What did your mom used to wear, Pan?>E. How about your Gohan? Did he have any cool costumes?>F. Something else?
>>2289025>>2289033Very sorry to hear that, man. Well, I'll be running for the rest of the week, provided there are no more issues like yesterday, so we'll be here for ya'.
>>2289095I mean it is better then what Chichi wore when we first met her...>A. >F. But enchant her clothes and upgrade so it's rainbow shell armored material (add an undershirt at the very least). Offer the same to Buula.Personally I think an outfit similar to Chuu Lee would look best...
>>2289095>E.Oh god the door we're about to open.
>>2289132I'm willing to support the enchantment idea.
>>2289025>>2289033Damn, mang. That sucks. Sorry to hear that.>>2289133But damn, I cannot back this hard enough.>>2289132I do really like that outfit though...
>>2289166I'm fine with a superhero outfit later, but it's not the most practical thing to wear when not in combat.
>>2289095“Come now, I won’t bite.” You give her a sweet, friendly smile. Pan scoots away further. “Well, what about your Gohan? Did your dad have any cool outfits? Oh, and can’t forget all the enhancements and enchantments I’ve learned... I could add those too...”Pan looks at you with dread in her eyes, gulping and trying to not to say anything. There’s an uncomfortable silence for a good minute before Buula coughs. “Maple, you really shouldn’t...”“Oh come now, I’m sure he-”Pan, her face a bright shade of red, goes into her backpack and takes out a wallet, looking away. You open it up, finding a few pictures of her and her family... aww, Videl does look really sweet all grown up, though that ponytail isn’t really her sty-.....https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1l994mb-CS4You find a picture of two people in superhero getups, the man with a green tunic, black spandex, and flowing red cape, while the lady’s is more of a light teal color with purple spandex and a more salmon-colored cape. Both of them seem to be wearing helmets with little antennae sticking out. Pan, still looking away, exclaims, “My dad has the WORST taste in outfits, and mom is no better. You can see it clear enough right here. So don’t ask again.”>A. ...Your dad has the BEST taste in outfits! So proud of him! And Videl!>B. It... is a little silly. Okay, something else>C. Just enhance her normal clothes. Can’t keep stalling this out...>D. Something else?
>>2289267>>A. ...Your dad has the BEST taste in outfits! So proud of him! And Videl!>C. Just enhance her normal clothes. Can’t keep stalling this out...
>>2289267>A. ...Your dad has the BEST taste in outfits! So proud of him! And Videl!>C. Just enhance her normal clothes. Can’t keep stalling this out...Just make her shirt a bit longer.
>>2289290Yeah but do it without her noticing.
>>2289304So we replace it with one of those tied up shirts?
>>2289267Your eyes light up. “...Pan. Your dad has the BEST taste in outfits!”She quickly grabs her wallet back. “No! No not you too!”“And your mom! Those look AMAZING!” you shout out gleefully. “So proud of them!”The girl lets out an exacerbated groan, exclaiming, “Maple, no!”“Maple... yes?” you ask with a pleasant smirk.“NO!” Pan insists.You laugh out hysterically, then pat the pouting girl on her head again. “Okay, okay, you win. But how about some enchantments for your normal outfit? On the house?”Still pouting, she turns her head away. “Fine.”You give her clothes some extra protection... and just for good measure you lengthen her shirt juuuust a little bit more. At least enough to cover her belly. “Okay, sorry for taking up so much time. We should head off.”“I can understand, and appreciate, getting new clothes, but I am never going to wear one of... those outfits.” Pan declares.Buula shakes her head. “Can we go?”You nod, and the three of you head off back to the tower you found Turles in. You find Wan and the planet’s Kami talking with the bug-man from before. A group of the captured pirates sit nearby, tied up, while the crystal balls are still in the area. You notice the one with a small, fairy-like person inside it resting on Kami’s seat.“Don’t know how she even got trapped in here... so it really was the leader that knew what happened with her.” Torbie states. “Hmm... and it seems that whatever they were planning here, planet Outa might also be under threat. Ah, you’re back! Good to see you three again.” The bug-man welcomes you all.>A. Let me get a look at that fairy>B. Wait, so Raichi’s got another planet in his sights?>C. Turles mentioned trying to plant the Tree of Might on this planet, where might the seeds be?>D. Something else?
>>2289400>>A. Let me get a look at that fairy
>>2289400>A & B.
>>2289400>A. Let me get a look at that fairy>>B. Wait, so Raichi’s got another planet in his sights?
>>2289400You walk up to the fairy trapped in the crystal ball. She’s... about the size of a child, but her shape is more like that of a grown woman. You scratch your head. “So... what’s your story?”“I was trapped within here by those villains!” she exclaims. “That space pirate, he found me as I was escaping from the Dark Planet...” She stops, squinting slightly. “...You seem familiar. Have we... met before?”You try to recall, but you can’t really place it. However... “The... Dark Planet?”She nods. “I was called there by a powerful force... I had to find a way to escape, and I managed to sneak onboard one of the probe ships that... that maniac sent out, but just my luck, the one he sent was carrying them...”“...You met Dr. Raichi.” you verbalize.She nods. “You know him? ...Wait, I... I have seen you before! I saw your picture there! You’re... aren’t you one of his experiments?”You rub the back of your neck, glancing away from her. “...My brother Acer and I were made by him, two Tuffles born from the last genetic scraps he could salvage. He abandoned us many years ago, when we were still children...”“But... the picture was recent, on one of his monitors!” she exclaims.Sighing, you shake your head. “Of course... he’s been tracking us thanks to Towa’s help. We... aren’t on the best of terms anymore, to put it lightly. I plan to do everything I can to stop him.” You place your hands on your hips. “But first thing’s first, we need to get you out of here! ...But, er, how?”The fairy hangs her head. “I... am not really sure. Anything too forceful I’ve been worried might be dangerous, with this cursed crystal ball... I’m honestly not even sure how I’m still breathing.”“...Curse, huh? Okay, I’ve got this!” you proclaim. You place your hand on the crystal ball and take a deep breath. You charge up a bit of Ki and sense the cursed magic within the crystal ball. Hmm... yeah, you’ve got this. “CURSE BREAKER!”(cont.)
>>2289559A jolt of power courses through the orb, a violet glow around it quickly disappearing almost as readily as it appears. The glass all around the crystal ball starts to crack, until it eventually shatters completely, the fairy stretching her wings and flying out of it. “I’m free! I’m free!” she proclaims excitedly, flying around your head, then around Pan, Buula, and even Sugoro and son before moving back to you. “Thank you! Thank you so much!”You grin at her. “Not a problem... ah, sorry, I don’t even know your name...”She bows to you. “You may call me Yosei.”“I’m Maple Son-Mahogany, one of the Earth’s Champions, last hope of a dying race, defender of truth, justice, and the planet Plant way!” Aaaaand pose!“Maple... yes, yes, that was you.” she states. “Ah... sorry about your... er, what exactly is he to you?”“Ghost dad. Though he’s been less of a father to my brother and I than the man who adopted us, Master Roshi.”Pan looks at you funny. “...Huh.”“I see...” the fairy sighs out apologetically.You next turn your attention to the pirates, looking them over, before asking Wan and Kami, “So... what exactly is going on with this other planet? Outa, was it?”Torbie nods. “Yes, the planet Outa. From what I can gather, they’ve set up another one of these machines on the planet.” He motions over to the destroyed Destron Gas machine. “Most likely, they have a different warrior guarding there... or doing something even worse than what’s been happening here.”The pirates seem a little concerned. “H-he wouldn’t do that! Bah, you fools don’t know what you’re talking about!”“Did he or did he not send one of these machines to that world?” you ask.“W-well...” The pirate mumbles an affirmation under his breath.“Was afraid of this... then we don’t have much time to lose. Buula, Pan, Sugoro, Shusugoro, Torbie, Yosei, you guys ready to save another world?”“YEAH!”>DRAGON BALL TUFFLE QUEST Z #76... 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 this 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?
>>2289560Holy crap that was cool Kato, thanks a ton.So do you plan to run all the way into Super or do you currently have a plan to stop about where Z did?
>>2289560Yosei a cute. And this is a fun little ragtag group we've gathered. Fun times Kato.
>>2289570>>2289573Glad to hear! Thank you very much for playing!So, plans are still set to continue this through to the end of Buu and into Super, with some GT sprinkled in, though some things may have drastic changes. I will come out and say this, though: I feel it's coming close to time to let Maple as the main protagonist step down. Furthermore, I'm considering ending Tuffle Quest "Z" with the end of Raichi's threat. The timeskip into the Buu arc might get a rebranding as "Tuffle Quest Kai" or something. Furthermore, I've got something coming up in regards to some of the delays I've experienced recently here on 4chan. More on that later though.If y'all have any thoughts on this please, feel free to share them, too.

>>2290260We'll see.>>2291550Some plans. We'll see about that later though.Anyway, we're back!>>2289560Wan and Kuhn’s Kami help you all prepare for heading to planet Outa, with Buula reassuring Torbie that she can get him back to King Yemma when his time is up. You and Buula are able to get one of the pirates to help you locate the planet, with the pink alien woman locating the Ki of one of the pirates still on the planet.Yosei sits on Buula’s shoulder as you all try to think up a plan. “I wish I could tell you all more on what he’s trying to do out there... I was only a prisoner for a short time before I tried to escape.”“Well, did he at the very least seem to be connected with any other scientists or something? Any weird blue robot people?” Pan questions.“There was an old man, but he wasn’t blue. I only managed to see him once though. Had a really tall, really weird hat that had this strange symbol on it...” she states.“...Did it look anything like this?” you ask, materializing up a piece of cloth with the [R><R] symbol on it. The fairy nods. “So guess that’s where Gero ended up. Hmm... he might still be there though...”“Well, we don’t have much time left.” Buula states, looking to Torbie for a moment. “Shall we be off?”>A. Let’s go!>B. Let’s see if we can get a bit more out of the pirates first>C. Something else?
>>2291640>B. Let’s see if we can get a bit more out of the pirates first>C. Something else?Ask the Kuhn's Kami if his Lookout for the Kuhn have any rooms like the pendulum room or the hyperbolic time chamber? Or anything unique like that?It's rather apparent we could use any edge they might have...
>>2291640>>A. Let’s go!
>>2291640“Well, unless there’s something you guys figure we need...” you look over to Wan and Kami.“There is not enough time for anything else, sadly.” the dog-man replies.“Then let’s go!”You all teleport away, appearing at what seems to be a domed, underwater city. And right behind a fish-man who seems to... be cowering in a corner? Huh? Why is...“Haa... n-no... no, it can’t be, everything’s locked... j-just stay calm, it’s not going to notice...” he repeats to himself.You look around the area... and you realize that it’s almost deserted. You can barely sense anyone around. Just a handful of people scattered throughout the city. This is... what happened here?Pan seems to move back closer to you, Yosei and the space lemurs hiding behind you as well. Buula looks around, noticing, “...There seems to be articles of clothing scattered around the area. But no... bodies...” Her red and black eyes open wide....Oh no.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I4hXtcjXFjI>A. Samma Ditthi!>B. Sense around, find where it might be!>C.

>>2291771https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jpkeAQG6kQwYou sense out for any strange Ki signatures while declaring “Samma Ditthi!” There’s a presence nearby, masking their ki, but clearly stronger than the surrounding, remaining populace. Wait... now it’s definitely hiding its Ki, but you still feel it nearby. It clearly knows you’re all here and-...W-why can you sense two of them? Wait... no, three! Four... five... oh no. Gods, if this IS him, has he been using the multi-form technique? Or... has Gero made more? Buula clenches her fists. “No mistaking it. It’s Cell.”“So this is what Cell was like before he was complete, huh?” Pan comments. “This is giving me flashbacks to Baby...” The thought seems to cause the girl to shiver.Out of the corner of your eye you spot something move quickly. He... THEY know you’re all here. But from it you can sense not quite... malice, but more curiosity and... hunger. Yosei hides behind your back. “Cell... that name’s familiar. I think the other old man said that name before.”Craaaap. “What now?”Buula takes a defensive stance, trying to keep herself ready for whatever tries to come your way. Torbie stands beside her, taking a similar position. Pan, however... “HEY YOU BIG DUMB GREEN BUG! HIDING ISN’T GOING TO MAKE THIS EASIER ON ANYONE! GET OUT HERE SO WE CAN KICK YOUR BUTT!”You nearly call her your daughter’s name, but catch yourself before she goes on. “Pan, no!”“MY DAD KICKED YOUR BUTT ALREADY, YOU’RE NOT INTIMIDATING ANYONE!” she shouts out even louder.You tense up, but before you can get her to stop, you feel a presence traveling towards you quickly. The ground underneath you cracks open as a green blur jolts out. “You seem to have a death wish! I’ll be happy to obli-”Right as his tail is about to reach her, Pan grabs it, to Cell’s complete bewilderment. With all her strength she starts to spin him around and then jumps up and slams him on the floor. She dusts her hands off and stares down at the still bewildered bug-man. “Knew he couldn’t resist that, heh heh.”“Who the hell are you?!” Cell demands of the girl. He then looks over to Torbie. “...Who the hell are YOU!?” He jolts up again, starting to back away. “Rgh... you’ll regret this, brat!” Cell tries to make a run for it...>A. You’re not going anywhere!

>>2292047Oof, Pan just got crater'd. Flattened. Pancaked!
>>2291949You go after Cell, declaring, “You’re not going anywhere! CLOTHES BEAM!” A multi-ton straight jacket wraps around the bug-man, Cell collapsing on the ground. It allows you the right chance to Instant Transmission right in front of him as he tries to get up, charging magic in your hand. “FREEZE!” you shout out as you hit him with a Fractal Strike.Cell’s stopped cold, unable to move. “RGH... HRK... Y-YOU...!”“Hey now, chill out! You’re gonna be staying here for a while, so cool your jets.”Pan groans loudly in the distance as she and Buula approach you, Torbie looking over the creature curiously. “I haven’t quite seen a creature like you... even the resemblance is superficial at best.”Cell growls out at him before returning his attention to you. “What makes you think this will hold me? Once I’m out of here, brat, I’m taking your energy first. Then I’m taking hers! Nobody pulls a fast one on me and gets away with it!”Pan sticks her tongue out at him. “Some big bad monster bug you are.”“I’d imagine one reason Gero and Raichi brought you back was to get you some upgrades, but you seem about the same as before.” you comment. “...And you’re definitely not alone. Just what is going-”(cont.)
>>2292164https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5ttk-rOl4moYou get a flash of foresight, and quickly move out of the way as the area around you suddenly becomes engulfed in explosions. Buula manages to get out of the way, but Pan, too distracted with taunting Cell, gets caught in the blasts. The girl’s thrown into the air, Buula stretching her arm out and catching her.Cell manages to break free, but looks up at where the blasts came from. “Cutting it a little close there!” he barks out.“Fear not, dear brother.” a strange voice calls out. “Your Saiyan cells would make any damage sustained result in further growth.” You look up and see... a bizarre, pale-white humanoid figure, with pointed ears, spiky blue hair... but armor just like Cell’s.“Hrrmmn... so this is where she ended up. I take it 16 and Turles are gone.” a more gruff, deeper voice adds to the growing group as you realize there are even more of them approaching. The second voice belongs to a much larger figure, with wide shoulders even for a being as big as he is. And just like the other figure, he too seems to have the same armor, though his appearance much more closely resembles Cell’s.“Haha, little Maple! I thought Mira killed you! What a pleasant surprise!” a third voice adds to the group, sounding oddly friendly. A lankier, taller, skinnier Cell emerges. “This’ll be a change of pace, no longer bound to Raichi’s will.”Two more figures show up, another lanky Cell, with his tail attached to his head somehow, and another large, wide one. A final, more confident and smug voice is added to the mix. “The Time Patroller is the bigger concern, her and the girl.” This last one seems like a mix of the whole group, slightly above-average height, the same insectoid crown, wings, and tail, but a far more humanoid face.Buula helps Pan stand on her own. “So she’s brought in even these Ginyu wannabes.”“Oh we are no wannabes. The Ginyu Force WISHES they could be as perfect as the rest of us.” the last one declares.Cell, the first one, smiles smugly. “Well, allow me to introduce you all to... my brothers. The CELL SENTAI!”All of them leap down behind the last one, the group striking a combined pose. You can sense tremendous power from all of them, and that coordination means they know how to work together very well. Agh... damn it!>A. Just what is Towa trying to accomplish here?>B. Oh no they DIDN’T! POSE-OFF!>C. Buula, Pan, Torbie! Let’s take ‘em down!>D. Something else?

>>2292172Oh no they didn’t. Oh NO they DIDN’T. OH NO THEY -DIDN’T-! That’s it, POSE-OFF!You spread your legs and cross your arms. “I’ve heard a bit about you guys. So let me make this our PROPER introduction.” You bring your arms up, then turn your body, thrusting your left hand forward as you pull your right one back. “Faster than lightning, Champion of Earth, Master of the Turtle School!” You raise your left arm and move it slowly in a circular motion, before twisting your body again and thrusting your right arm forward. “Honorary Ginyu Force member, vanquisher of demons and villains from all over!” You finally pull your right arm back as you thrust your left arm to the side, completing your classic pose. “Last hope of a dying race! Defender of truth, justice, and the planet Plant way! I am Maple Son-Mahogany!”Cell just... stares at you. He stares like he can’t believe what he’s witnessing. He stares like he refuses to comprehend what just happened. He stares, and shakes his head slowly... while the rest of the Cell Sentai claps respectfully. Cell barks out at them, “DON’T APPLAUD THAT!”Pan, healed up slightly seems to have witnessed the entire ordeal. Her face rests firmly in her palm as she groans, “Even if we aren’t related, the resemblance is uncanny. Uuuuggghhh... whyyyy...”Buula, mildly amused, looks to her and comments, “You say that like the Para Para-”“WE’RE NOT DOING THE PARA PARA!” she shouts out.“Para what now...?” you try to ask, only for Cell to come charging at you. You narrowly avoid his tail, only to get kicked in the gut and sent backwards, stopping yourself right in front of Buula. “...That was a cheap shot.”Cell’s aura grows around him, a golden tint to it almost like that of a Super Saiyan’s. “If you think some fancy poses can save you, let me assure you that you’re DEAD wrong.” His body seems to shimmer slightly. “Hmnh. Seems it’s almost ready... I have to say, I really should be thanking you and all your little friends. If not for my untimely end... I would have never gotten the upgrades I so desperately needed, the ones denied to me in my timeline. It won’t be long now, but do not worry... soon, you too will become part of PERFECTION!”>DRAGON BALL TUFFLE QUEST Z #76... 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 this 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?
>>2292374What is this Para Para they speak of?Also fun run Kato, great work.
>>2292374Yeah, Pan makes for a good tsukkomi.
>>2292374So Cell has been stalling for time.And we need to introduce Pan to Peppa soon. We really do.
>>2292374Great thread Kato, quite a bit of fun so far. >>2289608As for this I’m ok with it. Maple’s had her time in the spotlight, from way back when she was a little girl who met a boy, and shot him in the face to now. Its almost time for the kids to step forward and protect their timeline while Maple occasionally helps out the Time Patrol?
>>2292374I don't mind us focusing on the next generation but I'd still like to play Maple time to time. She's like an old friend, and a comfort to have around.
>>2292387Something Pan that pan is still upset over.And thanks!>>2292392You DO have a lot of things that either remind her of her grandpa or just seem truly bizarre to the kid.>>2292435Pan might be a little unsure how to react to it. She still feels a little weird about meeting them the first time around.>>2293340>>2293650Okay, thanks for the feedback on this. If y'all have any more thoughts on that, I'm all ears.And with that said, we're back!>>2292374https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5z_XZt1QuiECell powers up along with the rest of the group. Buula looks around the fighters. “Maple,Pan, you two should focus on him. Torbie, back me up with the Ginyu wannabes.” the pink alien woman commands.Pan nods at you, her aura flaring around her.

>>2293918https://youtu.be/DATL6ccLyWYAs Cell attempts to strike Pan with his tail, you quickly fire out a Clothes Beam, binding the monster’s tail inside a 10-ton weight that causes it to crash to the ground, unbalancing the bug-man. Pan gets a lucky kick in as Cell stumbles, knocking him on his back. You then form a sphere of Ki in your hand and then launch it into the air, the Lunar Siren beaming down energy and boosting Pan’s strength even further.She kicks the monster’s jaw upwards, then elbows him in the chest, following it up by grabbing him by his bug-like crown and tossing him into the air. Cell manages to dodge the girl as she chases after him, and even with the tail weighed down, he still attempts to grab her with it. But Pan’s much too quick thanks to your support, his attack reaching only an afterimage as Pan appears above Cell, the feint managing to catch him off-guard as she fires a Ki blast into his back.Cell finally breaks the restraint on his tail with a hard slam onto the ground, then raises his hand above his head. “DESTRUCTO DISK!” he declares, flinging the razor-sharp blade of Ki up at Pan. Your Spirit Bits shoot up and form a shield that catches the attack long enough for Pan to dodge out of the way, the girl delivering a sledgehammer blow to the bug-man’s face.Out of the corner of your eye, you spot Buula and Torbie struggling to keep up with the sinister six Cell Sentai ganging up on them. You also happen to catch something truly strange, the widest of the group seems to keep teleporting around, but it’s not like he’s using Instant Transmission... it’s something else. There’s a familiar feeling to his movements... it’s something truly bizarre. The tallest and lankiest of the group also seems to move with truly blistering speed, while the blue-haired elf-like one peppers them with small but strangely powerful explosive Ki blasts.And you also start to realize how powerful each member of this group is. Torbie himself seems like he’d be nearly a match for Cooler, but he’s having trouble keeping up with the various foes surrounding him. Even the weakest of the Cell Sentai seems to have strength comparable to Raditz... and each of them have exceptional coordination.>A. Keep helping Pan, Buula can handle herself!>B.

>>2294195You send your Spirit Bits out over to help Buula and Torbie, but the second-lankiest Cell catches notice of them... and to your surprise, forms Spirit Bits of his own. Much, much stronger ones at that. He waves his head-tail at you, chuckling as your Spirit Bits are hounded and blasted by the stronger ones. You move away from them and try to focus your attention back on Cell, Pan still holding the upper hand.You declare out “SAMMA VACA!” at the Cell Sentai, but all of them seem to notice it coming and scatter, flying in formation and preventing you from really lowering their strength. You next try to fire an MP Buster at the regular Cell, but he catches on to your attack rather quick after noticing his comrades scatter. Cell bolts down to you and twists his body to feint you into guarding, his tail just narrowly missing your neck... but as you step back, he uses his long legs to trip you and cause you to fall, spinning around and bringing both of his hands together in a... Kamehameha? No, that’s a-“GALICK GUN!” Cell shouts, blasting you with the attack. You very narrowly manage to guard against it, but the beam still pushes you back, right through a building. He makes chase, trying to grab you as he aims his tail at your neck again. Pan manages to get to you just in time, blasting Cell in the face to stun him and following it up with a powerful uppercut to Cell’s chest, hard enough that it cracks the black bit of carapace armor in the center.Cell’s thrown back, but manages to land on a building. He pants slightly, clenching his chest. You and Pan notice that the rest of his armor starts to... shimmer and crack. “I’ll have to admit, you two ARE fairly impressive. You’ve put up a much better fight than Trunks ever did.” Cell’s Ki starts to rise even higher... “But looks like time is up for you! HAHAHAHA!”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bi1AAOjRxVcYou get a brief flash of insight... Cell seems like he’s going to transform into something even stronger!>A. Take ‘em down, now! Full power!>B.

>>2294426https://youtu.be/pTElubirJgs“...Pan, this is going to be risky, but I need your help on this one. We’ve only got one shot at this.” you tell the girl, preparing yourself for the technique, powering up and letting your power burst even higher with the Kaio-ken.“What’re you trying to do?” she asks.You materialize a jar with the Mafuba seal on it. “Hold this steady, and get close to him.”“O-okay...” She knows she doesn’t have the time to question it, and starts moving towards Cell.“Whatever you’re trying to do, it won’t work!” Cell declares, his armor cracking as power erupts from within him. A brilliant light pierces through the domed city. “HAHAHAHAHAHA!”“I don’t think so, Cell! MAAAFUUUBAAAA!” you scream out, firing the beam at the monster. The light clears up, and you see Cell’s completed form... with his power above even yours. His crown changing shape, his face becoming less bug-like and almost looking fish-like, with large lips. His wings seem to have vanished into his body, while his armor seems completely new. He has a smug smirk across his face... that lasts for about half a second.“OH SHI-UWWAAAAAHHGH!”The Mafuba catches the transformed Cell and spirals him upwards, caught inside the swirling vortex. You feel your strength start to leave you, and you chant out "Samma Kammanta” and “Samma Vayama” to try and keep yourself standing. Finally, you prepare to fling Cell down into the jar. “PAN, NOW!” you yell.She holds the jar up, taking the lid off of it as Cell is thrown into it, cursing you both before the technique finishes, Pan quickly placing the lid on the jar. There’s a tense silence... but the seal holds. The young Saiyan girl looks at you ecstatically. “We did it... WE DID IT!”You fly over to Pan, a little shaken from sealing such a powerful foe, but not in any critical condition. “Hah... well, that’s one down. Doubt it’ll work on everyone else, but at least we sealed Cell before this could get even worse.”“Haha, good job, Maple! Where’d you learn a skill like that?” she asks.“Dad, Master Roshi, taught it to me. He learned it from his master long ago, who sealed King Piccolo.” you tell her, patting the girl on the head.She looks over the Mafuba jar. “Wow... we could have solved a lot of our troubles if grandpa knew this technique... wonder why he never learned it from Master Roshi?”“Dad said it can risk your life if used against strong foes... even now, I might not be talking to you if I didn’t properly prepare myself for it.”(cont.)
>>2294545Pan prepares to give it over to you. “Anyway, here you-”You get a flash of foresight and instinctively try to shield both yourself and Pan as a blast comes screeching at the two of you. You’re able to bring up a barrier quick enough to avoid damage... but before you can properly react, the one you assume to be the leader of the Cell Sentai is floating close to the both of you... having taken the Mafuba jar out of Pan’s hands.“Yoink.” he says with a mild smirk. “Sorry, can’t let you have this...”You power up once more. “PAN, AFTER HIM!”>DRAGON BALL TUFFLE QUEST Z #76...

Damn you Cell Sentai! Also great run Kato, had a bunch of fun as usual.
Agh, cliffhanger. Well, still, good run Kato. Will this at least force a retreat for the Cell Sentai?
Well that could've gone better....If I had to guess our next move, we should try to use Shine Spark to break apart the group and scatter them like a bowling ball to a bunch of pins while Pan goes for the leader. Which I'm guessing is this guy?
>>2294930surprise solar flare, while using telekinesis to MAKE SURE the jar stays shut.then instant transmission behind cell first, then above him (a fakeout if he's trying to use ki sense).Iaigiri to cut off his hands while paralyzing him momentarily afterwards, grab the jar, and instantly use explosive wave because his allies will be arriving right about now.make sure not to damage the jar. I assume explosive wave won't harm it if it's being held because it doesn't shred people's clothes or anything.
>>2294556>>2294550Glad to hear!The Cell Sentai has a specific goal in mind, but they may have to leave soon if things start to go any further south for them.>>2294930It is indeed.>>2295962Those are some good ideas.Anyway, we're back!>>2294546The Cell Sentai leader blasts off in surprising speed... and even as you and Pan try to chase after him, dodging around buildings and trying to head him off, he seems to outspeed you both significantly.

>>2296163https://youtu.be/YOeRKE-ajsUYou telepathically tell Buula and Torbie to shield their eyes as you materialize a pair of sunglasses for Pan. Okay, gotta make this count! You use Instant Transmission to teleport in front of the bug-man and, which he catches what you’re about to do, he can’t quite shield himself in time as you teleport again to his side. “SOLAR FLARE!” you yell out, briefly blinding your foe and catching him off-gaurd. Your telekinesis allows you to grab the sealed jar and, in one smooth, swift motion, you draw your sword and slash off his hands, pulling the jar away with your telekinetic abilities.Almost as quickly as you disarm him, though, he regenerates his hands and tries to fire a blast at you. You push him away and dodge, flying away and tossing the jar over to Pan, who catches it and moves away. You then speed up, bolting away from your foe until you’ve set yourself up for... “SHIIIIINE! SPAAAAAAARK!”You bolt down and smash into the first member of the Cell Sentai, and speed on down to the rest of them, hitting them one by one and getting them off-balance. Buula flashes you a thumb’s up, and you feel her Ki skyrocket. “Then let’s not delay... I’ve been saving this one! KAIO-KEN! TIMES... TWENTY!”The blazing red aura erupts around her body as she moves with blistering speeds, dashing around and striking down each member of the Cell Sentai, her arms stretching like Piccolo’s as she grapples the largest of the group and uses him as a makeshift club against the other members. She finishes it up by herding them all together and forming spheres of Ki in her hands. Just like with 16, substantial amounts of power seems to flow out of the spheres, bathing the group of fighters before she finally brings her hands together like Vegeta’s Final Flash technique.A tremendous explosion follows, enough to level part of the surrounding area. The Cell Sentai members are sent hurdling away from the epicenter, crashing into and even through some of the buildings, the dome above you all barely avoiding being shattered by the blast. The aura leaves Buula as she pants for a bit. “Haa... haa... that should’ve left a mark.”Pan flies away from the area, heading back to Sugoro and Yosei. But to your surprise, even after all that damage, none of your foes seem like they’re exhausted. You also spot their leader bolting back down to one of them... agh, and he’s healing him!>A. Keep it up! Got ‘em on the ropes, can’t let them get a second wind!>B. Head off to Pan, make sure nobody tries to pull a fast one on you!>C. Restore Buula’s strength>D. Something else?

>>2296601https://youtu.be/djps3pGVK1c“We’ve got the upper hand! Don’t let them get a second wind!” You take an agressive stance alongside Buula and Torbie, the three of you dashing out together at the Cell Sentai. While the leader does manage to heal up one of his members, Buula’s able to keep him away from the tallest of the group.Your Spirit Bits hound the group of fighters as Torbie gets up close with their leader, managing to score a lucky hit against him that sends him flying. You fire off a Geist Magnum, boosted with Lightning, to try and stun the elf-like one. While the attack hits, it’s apparent that he’s somehow immune to your magic’s effects.The widest of the group stands up out of the rubble, shaking it off. You notice he’s about to do something... and your Foresight confirms it, as he vanishes out of view. You realize he’s about to get to Pan! “Buula, he’s got something like Instant Transmission!” you shout to her. “I’ll go afterhim!”“But he didn’t... wait, no. Agh, damn it, does he have that skill?” she asks aloud. “MAPLE, EXPLOSIVE WAVE WHEN YOU REACH HIM!” she calls out.You teleport away, seeing him holding Pan by her throat, the girl still trying to keep the jar away from him. “Sorry kid, but can’t quite let you take away our dead, beloved-” He spots you, and you do as Buula asks. Faster than you can even process it, he’s released Pan but has teleported again. But to his surprise, your point-blank attack has apparently kept him from grabbing the jar. He’s pushed away from you both, you making sure Pan and the jar aren’t damaged. “AGH! You... so, guess you learned about Guldo’s old trick too... but do you really think you can outpace my ability?”>A. Guldo... so he’s got some kind of telekinesis? Counter with your own!>B.

>>2296926You get a flash of warning again, and before he has the chance, you bring up your hands. “Time for the big show! LIGHTNING FLASH SURPRISE!”The monster is held in place as your attack stops what he was about to do. The damage he’s taking isn’t substantial, but he seems to be incapable of using his technique. “GGRRRHH! D-damn... j-just about what I’d expect from you, little Maple...”He’s caught in place, and you can sense Buula again using the Kaio-ken to up her strength, fighting the rest of the Cell Sentai with Torbie. Pan hands the jar over to Sugoro, telling him and his son to run before she joins you again. “They just don’t know when to quit...” she comments. “Maple, I might be able to finish him off, can you hold him like that for a bit longer?”>A.

>>2297121https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FZZeOh2DL7MYou focus all your efforts on keeping him in place. “Pan, if you’re gonna do it, do it now!”She brings her hands forward. “Kaaaaa...” Slowly she pulls them back, building up as much Ki as she can. “Meeee...”It’s a good thing you’re as focused on this as you are, because you can feel the bug-man try to push away your technique with an Explosive Wave. But just as it bursts around him, you up your strength further, trapping him back again and holding him steady. “...Heh. Hehahahaha! Impressive, most impressive!”“Haaaa... MEEEEE...”“PAN, NOW!” you shout out.“HHAAAAAAAAAAAA!”The blue beam bursts out from her hands, and as soon as it makes contact with the monster, you stop with your technique. The wave of Ki engulfs the Cell Sentai fighter, sending him flying with it. You and Pan both take a moment to breathe a sigh of relief. “Gods... finally, we’ve got this done... g-good work, kiddo!” you praise, raising your fist and bumping it against Pan’s.“Aheh... I... I can see why dad had so much trouble with ours... but we did it...” she laughs out, grinning proudly.(cont.)
>>2297387The two of you soon realize your celebrations are a bit premature, as while that certainly knocked the wind out of your foe, he’s still very much alive. Badly injured, but very much alive. “Hrrgghh...” he groans out, barely able to keep himself in the air.“Th-that was my strongest Kamehameha!” Pan declares. “How... how is he still able to keep fighting?!”Just then, your cavalry finally arrives. Lapis, Lazuli, and Bra teleport in behind you, the time traveler immediately transforming... though her strength is more than double what you remember. You look back and notice that the girl’s golden aura is sparking around her, her hair standing up straighter and spikier.The leader of the Cell Sentai flies up to his comrade. “We’re pulling back, our brother can be rescued later.”The wide, bulky monster nods solemnly. “Yeah... we’d need to use our trump card to hold off her AND a Super Saiyan 2.”The both of them look down at you, disappearing. You sense that the others vanish not too long after. Bra powers down, Buula and Torbie regrouping with you. The blue-haired girl stares at the red alien, hand going for her sword, but Buula raises her hand to stop Bra.“Aw damn, shame we were too late.” Lapis comments.“On the contrary, you kept this from getting any more difficult.” Buula replies.To your surprise, Bra immediately runs to you and gives you a hug. You feel her tremble slightly. “I’m sorry... I’m so sorry... if I were just a little more cautious...” Her voice is shaky, almost... scared.“H-hey! I’m fine, no worrying over that right now.” you reply. Bra finally lets go of you, looking to Buula and Torbie. “How’d you guys know we needed help?”“We’d been trying for hours now.” Lapis tells you. “Destron Gas machines were making getting a good lock on you a real chore, neither me, Krillin, nor Chuu Lee could sense you all the way out here. Buuut, with a bit of help from King Kai...”“What HAVE you been up to out here?” Lazuli asks, crossing her arms.You and Buula take a bit of time to explain what you’ve been through, the three of them surprised that Dr. Raichi’s targeting other planets, too. Bra apologizes again for letting you get dragged into this mess, but you reassure her that at the very least, it ended up doing a bit of good in the end.>A. How’s the situation looking back on Earth?>B. Gohan, Peppa, are they still okay?>C. Did Goku manage to stop Broly?>D. Asking about Earth can wait, you still need to know what happened on this planet>E. Something else?
>>2297388>A. How’s the situation looking back on Earth?>Give the captured Cell to Buula. Have her take it to her boss, since it'd be a much more secure place than anywhere you can put it.
>>2297388>A.>E.Materialize an orb around the mafuba jar made of out toughest material and enchant it to prevent jar breakage. Then >>2297399
>>2297388As Sugoro, Shusugoro, and Yosei return, you take the jar back and hand it to Buula after giving it just a little bit more protection. “Here, I’m sure your boss will know what to do with this. It’ll be way, way safer than keeping it here with us.”Buula nods. “Smart thinking. I’m sure she’ll be able to keep it somewhere safe.” She then looks to Bra, the blue-haired girl lowering her head slightly. “...You’re still worried about Mira?”She nods. “Acer and I were able to force him and Towa to flee, though even with this added power... he was still willing to fight us.”“Ah, right! Congrats, Bra! I knew you could do it!” Hah, so she’s ascended just like Gohan, Peppa, and Goku.“Th-thank you...” she replies bashfully.Pan seems to pout at her jealously, catching the eye of Lapis and Lazuli. “So... who’s the new twerp?”“I’ll save you the long explanation and just tell you this: Time Travel’s involved.” Buula responds.“And yet still no scarves, not even a police box...” he comments, causing his sister to shake her head and grumble out “nerd” at him.You place your hand on Pan’s shoulder reassuringly, then try to change the subject. “So, what all HAS happened on Earth since I went on this ‘ol grand tour of the cosmos?”(cont.)
>>2297478“Where to start...?” Bra asks aloud. She explains how Acer gained a huge boost in strength once it looked like you died, which Trip later confirmed to be him absorbing in a significant amount of the Destron Gas, enough to allow everyone around to use their energy attacks, though at the cost of extreme risk to his health. It knocked him out cold once it was all over, and Vegeta nearly died trying to keep Bra herself from getting killed by Mira. The two of them are still recovering at the Lookout, Piccolo and Chi-chi having to hold off attacks from King Piccolo, Lord Slug, and many others attempting to destroy it.Goku and Broly managed to fight to a standstill, the two of them exhausting their stamina, even with Broly’s Ki rising up constantly. Towa apparently was able to get him off Earth before the battle could be drawn out any longer, much to Broly’s anger. Bra further notes that Pantea and Videl were able to chase Basilea off after finally achieving the power Videl managed a brief taste of when she took the Ultra Divine Water.“Last I heard, Freeza, King Cold, and Cooler all found Kuriza. Chuu Lee and Peppa were with him, but I don’t know what else has happened except for Chuu Lee trying to sense for your Ki when we learned you were still alive.” Bra finishes up.“I’d imagine Goku, Peppa, and Gohan are all still extremely worried about you.” Lazuli adds.“There are still mysteries out here, though.” Pan notes. “Like why that Raichi guy has other planets like this in his sights.”“Though Maple is right, we can’t let Cell get back into their hands.” Buula states, looking at the jar. Bra, Lapis, and Lazuli all give the jar some uneasy glares. “At the very least, one of us needs to return to the Time Patrol. Might as well be me.”Bra hangs her head. “I’m sorry that you’re still having to clean up my mess... ah, did Gohan...?”“Don’t worry, we managed to knock some sense into him.” she replies. “Take care, everyone.”>DRAGON BALL TUFFLE QUEST Z #76... 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 this tonight, folks. We’ll continue Sunday starting ~5:30 pm PST. I’ll be around for a bit for some questions and such. Did y’all have fun?
>>2297479How much of the tactics we used did you find unexpected?And did you expect us to send cell to the time nest with buula?
>>2297479>Cell in the Time NestWell this can absolutely never go wrong. Anyways had a great time, glad to see Maple’s still kicking ass. Also Goku’s performance had to be damn impressive to stalemate Broly.
>>2297506We should create a russian-doll type seal around the mafuba jar, enchanted to all fuck at every layer.Like, if we've got the time, literally just dump as much power as we can muster into a layer of protection, then create a new layer of material over the top of that and do it again. Seal it completely with no way to open it but to break all the enchanted layers.The final layer should be a big wrapping of the heaviest, most dense cloth we can create, making it looks like a giant egg with the kanji for "Destroyer" painted on the outside in dramatic calligraphy, and anyone who touches it get a bad electrical shock.Now that's how you seal something!
>>2297691Also, if you manage to get the outer wrap off, you should get blasted across the room by a non-damaging blast of ki, and the layer below the wrap should have a clear description of what's contained within and exactly why it's a terrible idea to try and open it engraved into the surface, no secret mystical bullshit if someone's gone that far already.
>>2297700Also include an approximate estimation of his power level in kilis, just in case someone who knows what they're talking about it around to see it.
>>2297506To be fair, he is a ghost, right? So once we handle this, he should be dead again.That said, Perfect Cell Does hang out as a tutor in the Time Nest.
>>2297479Does Torbie know any moves or did he see any of use any he'd like to learn? I'd like to equivalent exchange moves before he leaves...Also imagine if Cell had absorbed him...a Red Almost Perfect Cell?
>>2297833While it's nice to have an afterlife, it kinda sucks that we can never make anyone dead *enough* not to be a pain in the ass later.
>>2301283Just part of Dragonball cosmology.
>>2301283You can make then double dead, makes them stay dead requiring the super planet sized dragonballs to bring them back.
>>2297506What's the worst that could happen?
>>2297484There were a lot of things y'all did that I was surprised and delighted by. Really showed some quick thinking during this whole battle.I did not exactly expect you to send Cell to the Time Patrol, but it may work in my favor later on.>>2297506Glad to hear! A lot of the rolls earlier were actually Goku's, and boy did he pull out some surprises. And again, we'll have to wait and see on what becomes of Cell, won't we?>>2297691>>2297700>>2297701Quite an elaborate idea you've got there, anon. I like.>>2297833About that...>>2297938Perhaps. Might be something to consider later.Cell wouldn't change much if he absorbed Torbie.>>2301283>>2302190>>2302278Yemma is having a migraine from the paperwork all this has caused alone.>>2302311Shhhhhh.Anyway, we're back!>>2297479As Buula teleports away, and after you give her some pointers on making sure the jar is extra secure, you all gather to think things over for a moment. With everything that happened here, you’re still not even sure why Cell and his brothers even bothered coming to this place. Bra has an idea, though, and it’s not exactly a pleasant one. “Dr. Raichi could be trying to build up his forces. Gaining more phantoms, harnessing the grudges of the lives his minions have cut short for more troops...”“Ugh, now I AM getting flashbacks...” Pan comments.“So, you know this kid, right?” Lapis asks Bra.The blue-haired girl nods. “Yes. She’s part of the Time Patrol. For as young as she might seem, she’s fairly tough.”“I’ll say.” you add, patting Pan on the head again.“H-hey..” she mumbles out, trying to swat your hand away.“Well, every little bit of help’s appreciated.” Lapis states.>A. Let’s head back to the Lookout then>B. We should still look around here for a bit>C. Wait, Torbie, how long do you have left?>D. Something else?
>>2302926>A. Let’s head back to the Lookout then
Okay, we're moving on then...>>2302926“Let’s head back to Kami’s Lookout then.” you state. “Everyone ready?”“Eh, might as well.” Torbie comments. “It’ll help me get back to the Afterlife if I’m closer to a Guardian.”“Ah, right... hrmn, Auntie Baba could also help with that too. Eheh, well, thanks for coming along!” you tell the alien bug-man.Sugoro and his son move over to Lapis while Yosei sits down on your shoulder as everyone readies themselves to teleport back to Earth. Getting a lock on Trip’s Ki, finally, you head off back to the Lookout. You appear next to the Earth’s Kami, who herself is standing beside Vegeta and... and your brother. Chi-chi rests in a corner near her husband, seemingly worn out and exhausted.“Maple! Oh thank goodness you are safe!” Trip tells you, moving to your side. “It is good to see you again... ah, and you seem to have brought more friends with you.”You smile at her. “Good to see you again too, Trip. Sorry to have worried you all like that...”Pan seems to look around the area silently, curiously, first glancing at Vegeta, then at Chi-chi. Guess those are at least some faces familiar to her. Bra walks to Vegeta, looking down at him. “...Still out, huh?”“Yes, but he is alive, and out of any serious condition.” she replies. “I suspect there was something important going on, since you did not return immediately. What has happened out there?”You, Sugoro, and Yosei all give a quick rundown of what happened since you were blasted by Mira. Trip’s expression grows increasingly worried once she hears about what Cell was doing on Outa. “...Then this may be worse than I thought. I will contact King Yemma, but... we may be in greater trouble than we thought.”“Why’s that?” Lapis questions.“Because it shows that Dr. Raichi learned some fiendish tricks from his allies... and from my father.” Piccolo’s voice answers. The Namekian walks toward you all, dusting himself off. “The Lookout is still a prime target, but at least it’s safe for now. Any more injured should be able to rest up here.”>A. Okay, I need to find Goku! I heard he fought Broly to a standstill>B. Gohan was with Raditz, where have they ended up?>C. Is Peppa okay? Where is she now?>D. Something else?
>>2303353>A. Okay, I need to find Goku! I heard he fought Broly to a standstill
>>2303353>C.Peppa needs to meet Pan!
>>2303353“Is Peppa okay? Where is she now? Agh, I just know she must be worried sick...” you ask aloud. “She hasn’t gotten into any trouble, has she?”“She’s currently with Chuu Lee and Kuriza. They fought Freeza, Cold, and Cooler just a little while ago.” Piccolo tells you. “I’m not sure what all went down there, but... I’d imagine Kuriza is a little shaken by the ordeal. At the very least they’re still fine, though. As are Gohan and Raditz, I sense them headed towards Capsule Corp.”You sigh in relief. “Thank goodness... Okay, I need to find Goku! I heard he fought Broly to a standstill, he must be completely out of strength...”“He got a Senzu, but still seemed fairly exhausted. I’m sure he’s about where we left him.” Piccolo adds.“I’m going to him now.” you state.“I’m coming too.” Pan tells you, placing her hand on your shoulder. “Buula’s probably going to want me sticking with you anyway, Maple.”“Aheh, okay kiddo.” Before you teleport away, Piccolo seems to look down at you with concern. “...What? Something on my face?”“...She’s related to you isn’t she.” the Namekian guesses, squinting slightly.“Not technic- hey, what’s that supposed to mean?” You squint back at him.“Different timelines, like mine.” Bra tells Piccolo. “Don’t... don’t think too hard on it.”“Hrmn.” he grunts. “We’re down to the last few dozen, machines, but something seems strange about them. Keep in contact when you reach them.”(cont.)
>>2303916https://youtu.be/ygbE4SgFZvQ“Got it. Tell Acer to contact me when he wakes up, too.” You finally teleport away.You see him taking a breather, sitting down on a rock. When he senses you teleport in, his head jolts up, face beaming with joy. “Maple? MAPLE! HAHA!” Goku runs to you, picking you up and spinning around with you. “So glad you’re okay!”You hug him tight and give him a gentle kiss. “Missed you a lot, monkey boy. Glad you’re okay too.”“Blegh.” you hear Pan comment, the girl wincing as the two of you reunite.“Aheh, oh come on Pepp-uh... huh?” Goku looks at her with confusion. He looks at you, then at her, then at you again. “...Maple, did we have another dau-”You noogie him gently. “Goku you know it takes longer than that!”“Oh, yeah, right. Woops! She just looks really familiar, eheh!” he replies with a laugh.Pan facepalms, shaking her head. “Some things never change...”Goku finally lets you down, and you look over him, fixing up his Gi. “I’m surprised this isn’t in worse condition. How’d you manage to fight off Broly?”“Wasn’t easy. Especially when I felt you leave... I just got so angry, so worried. I had to win, to stop him. But he kept getting stronger and stronger... it’s like he had a limitless amount of energy inside him, just kept building and building. I can’t even really say I won... as strong as I got, all I could really do was wear him down physically, outpace him and damage him enough that he’d start to tire.” Goku explains. “Finally it seemed like I’d done enough to completely exhaust him. If Churai didn’t retrieve him, I’m not sure what would’ve happened. Maybe I could have beaten him... or maybe he’d ascend too.”You look up at Goku in surprise and shock. “...You really think he could break through the limits of Super Saiyan like you, Gohan, Peppa, and Bra did?”Goku shrugs. “Not really sure. But I was starting to get a feeling that he’d be capable of it.”“...And Towa still had him in her grasp.” you realize. Agh... just one more thing to worry about.“But enough about worrying over that, let’s go find the kids and get rid of the rest of the Gas machines!” Goku shouts out cheerfully, pulling you close with one arm and thrusting his fist into the air with the other. Goku then notices Pan once more. “Oh, right, um, right. Hey, my name’s Goku! Nice to meet you... uh.”“Pan. We met before when Buula investigated the Tree of Might, gra- ...Goku.”Well, this might be a bit tricky, but Goku is right. Time to save the world!>DRAGON BALL TUFFLE QUEST Z #76 END.>Twitter account is @KatoQm, will have status updates there>Got some questions for the QM? Characters? Suggestions?

Did y’all have fun?
>>2303916Your her Grandpa Piccolo, your more related to her then we are...>>2303936It's been fun, got here late but glad to catch the end.With Planet Kuhn and Outa dealt with, and Earth having fought back Raichi's work, will we be training more to deal with Ghost Dad or will we be setting off right away ?Should we use our second training day in the HTC before we depart? Lastly, how close are we to figuring out Kaio-Ten? Would sparring against Pandela help with that?
>>2303936Aw damn. Well, good times were had, Kato! Been a very fun thread.
>>2303958>>2303968Very glad to hear!There won't be much time for any training any time soon. Things might be kicking up a notch soon. Mark and Ginyu still aren't done with the HTC, though they're close. Kaio-Ten will take some more time. Chuu Lee and Videl on her own are closer to unlocking it, but you're not that far behind, if you're lucky you might get it by the time Raichi's second phase is in motion.
Happy Birthday, Kato!
